God with Us? Part-One.

Root of David!

The account of the shepherds out in the fields being visited by the heavenly host is a lovely account of the grace and mercy of our God! But why did he appear to these men, well that should be obvious, since the ancestor of Jesus was King David who started out life as a shepherd boy?

Jesus later would refer to Himself as , ‘I Am the good shepherd!

This theme of shepherding sheep literally and also Spiritually in the sense of leadership and responsibility is one to be heeded, since many today look after themselves first!

God is warning us who are in this role to end it, because we will at the end have to give an account of our actions to Him!

1 Kings 17:34,  Ezekiel 34:5-23,  Matthew 1:23,  12:36,  Luke 1:27,  2:8-20,  John 10:11,  14, Romans 14:12,  1 Peter 4:5.

Preparation’s for Christmas?

Black Friday to Christmas Eve!

The mad rush now for the Christmas season has began with American style hype over their sales? But this is more than the season of merriment, it is also the time for scammers to be at work online for those unsuspecting bargain hunters?

In this mad rush and as the days near what is now termed the holidays, it seems each year the world looses sight of what this season is really about? Cards, trees, Santa, snowmen, are all slowly replacing, the baby Jesus born of the virgin, the wise men, shepherds and the truth of God giving to us the free gift of His one and only Son Jesus!

Isaiah 9:6-7,    Matthew 1:23,    Luke  1:27,    2 Corinthians 11:2.

‘Happy New Year 2018.

Peace and Joy!

This is the traditional message of Christmas, that today seems lost in the rush of buying for everyone, but many of our cards even secular ones will still have a greeting similar to this?

Real peace and joy comes only when we know the Lord Jesus as our personal Saviour, other wise it is nothing more than feelings that are very much fleeting?

Christmas and Easter are about Jesus birth and death, he cam as the babe human the Saviour of the world and the King of Israel and He died for the sins of His people Israel and also for the Gentiles to make reconciliation between two races and between fallen humanity and God!

Genesis 28:21,  Psalm 16:4,  37:37,  Matthew 28:21,  John 14:27,  Romans 15:13,  Hebrews 12:2.
