Vision with God! One.

Forgetting the Past?

Believers in Jesus must let go of the past, memories, bad company, families, history? It is a challenge to be a Christian without labels, it is hard to love those who hate and oppose us?

Many nations claim religion and set their tribes out for all to see, while they claim they know Jesus? But they are self-opinionated and self-right, their view is the only view thus they have become narrow minded?

We are asked by the Lord to follow His ways and forget what has gone before, but me more a people of vision looking forward to His return and all things New!

Philippians 3:13,  Matthew 11:28-30,  Luke 9:62,  Psalm 27:4,  Revelation 21:2.

Manchester. U.K. 22/5/2017.

Wickedness!

This is a work of wickedness, when a young deluded man blew himself up killing twenty-two woman and children in a concert hall! The pain and suffering has come again to this city of Manchester, and many people will not easily seek any forgiveness of his actions?

We also must stand back as believers and reflect on the history of the police in this city, who have in the past fabricated evidence on the Irish community in relation to the IRA, the Hillsborough disaster and now be warned that some Muslims may be set up to get political results?

Today over twenty-four Christians have been murdered  near Cairo in Egypt, and so is revealed that these cowards on kill people in soft targets? Forgiveness is a command of the Lord, since He forgave us who too do not deserve anything from Him!

Exodus 23:1,  Deuteronomy 21:8,  Psalm 37:6,  86:5,   Proverbs 31:9,   Isaiah 1:17,   Luke 23:34,   1 Peter 3:16.

Workers Rights?

1st May.

Exploitation continues, despite the abolition of black slavery? The end of colonial slavery was replaced by the Industrial revolution and the need for mass cheap labour! Many children were forced down the mines and into the mill machine cleaning, people were forced to live in back to back housing and vile conditions!

The 19th Century say the rise of Socialist idealism and the workers Utopia of rights and farer conditions, sometimes coming at great coast? Capitalism was the driving forces of big business, apart from some Christian efforts to appease their workers, there was little care for the workers and their families?

Today many people are working for little or nothing and this is not right, if we claim to know Jesus then we should show, care, concern and love for the less fortunate?

Genesis 31:7-8,   Luke 10:34,   John 4:36,   Romans 3:23,   6:23.

Cleansing Blood. One.

Jesus our Passover Lamb.

In Isaiah 53 we are told what the Christ/Messiah would be like and the cost that he would pay for us, so that God could buy as back from the domain of Satan if we repented and believed in Jesus.

Many Christians get confused with John 3:16, because of the false doctrine of Replacement theology! God is now accepting His love to cover the gentiles as well as His people Israel! But when it comes to cleansing for sins, there is no change in His requirement for blood!

Accept now Jesus has made the final atonement for sin and all who trust in Him will receive the promise, hope of Eternal Life.  1 Corinthians 5:7.

Reconciliation. One.

Forgive and Forget.

Bitterness is a terrible condition to be in, when one is claiming to have a faith in God? Like racism and sectarianism, they block the power of the Holy Spirit working in our lives! Jesus was rejected first by His own people, but He has not given up on humans with all our flaws?

Jesus went to the cross/stake/tree for our sins, making that final atonement and rising from the dead so that we may have a New Life and overcome the sting of natural death!

Calvinism in some respects justifies sins, while in others it gives a belief that once saved will get us into heaven? But the bible is more complex and we need to understand it from the context that it was written in?

Luke 23:34,   Romans 5:10,   Matthew 5:23-26,   Colossians 1:20-22,   Hebrews 2:17.

Mission. Part-One.

Past and Present.

We tend to think that this is not for our place, but going off to another land to share the ‘Christian Faith?’ After the events mentioned in Acts chapter two the Good News message of Jesus spread out then to the known Greek, Persian and Roman world, which in itself was quite big.

Many of those early believers paid with their lives within the Roman Empire for at least 300-years, being fed to the lions! But this message of Jesus death for the forgiveness of sins and His resurrection from the dead did not die away but continued to grow!

Africa and Britain saw the first believers arriving from 34AD to the influx by 126AD, but it is not known when the first buildings were erected for meetings came about?

Matthew 28:19-20,  Mark 16:15-16,  Luke 24:47-48,  Acts 1:8,  Romans 10:18,  Colossians 1:23.

LOVE. 2.

Hate what is Evil and….

Love the truth, so that we can return to God an appreciate what Jesus has done for us!

Salvation came at a cost, blood was spilt to bring us into a New Life and Relationship with Him and our Father? Why then do we not believe the world of God, and why do we continue to live like the world?

Lifestyle is an excuse to refuse to change to the way that he wants us to be, less of self and more of Jesus? It is an honour to suffer for doing the right things, not a burden! Jesus went to the cross for us of His own choice!

Loving God is much more than the traditional Saint Valentines, when it is applied in Love and truth!

Exodus 20:20-23,   Job 31:11-12,   Isaiah 1:17,   Romans 1:27,   2 Thessalonians 2:10, James 1:27.
