Republic of South-Africa!

Hatred of foreigners and open Racism?

This is not what people around the world expected to ever hear, but it is the reality of the human heart that racism is a world-wide condition!

People get jealous when others make more money and can live better than the locals, some feel that they have been out done by the various incoming communities? But sometimes this is the cover for their failings of being lazy or over charging and they just don’t see why they should be undercut!

The business world is a hard place of competition and yet it is a wonderful place of offering variety and difference to people who have not seen, tasted or known new things?

Prayers are essential now that people are getting killed on the richest and most diverse International nation in Africa! Facing the facts of how we have failed is another and seeking that others will call on Jesus is a most vital line to follow that they be saved!

Slaves to Sin!

Slaves to Righteousness?

Since we have repented and come to faith in Jesus, we are no longer living in the world by its standards but we have been set free to live in the righteousness of God?

Many believers today are turning away from the truth of everything, because they want to be themselves, they want God in their pocket!

But that is not how it works, we have been bought with the precious blood of Jesus and we must obey God, letting go of everything that would hold us back from being followers?

This is why we have a comforter, the Spirit of God who leads and helps us, when we cannot do it alone, or are struggling!

John 3:3,   14-18,   Acts 2:3-4,   Romans 3:22-23,   6:22-23,   Ephesians 6:10-18,   Revelation 2:2.

Precious and Invaluable!

What we have been Given?

This a great time of the year to reflect on what God has done for us, between the Easter resurrection, the Ascension of Jesus and the coming of the Holy Spirit to those first believers gathered in Jerusalem for Pentecost!

We must consider that faith we have to believe the invisible and the impossible has been imparted to us through the ‘Good Works of Jesus and that we also have our belief which is invaluable more than anything this world can give to us.

Jesus said it to Satan during His time of temptation in the wilderness by Satan and this was written for us to in the society that we live in and face today. We must hold on and maintain what we have, while also sharing the love of Jesus that is in our hearts will all and those less fortunate in the world?

Matthew 4:1-1,  13:46,   1 Corinthians 3:15,   James 5:7,   1 Peter 1:7,  19,   2 Peter 1:1,  4.

Suffering Servant! Part-One.

Believed the Message?

Have we believed the message of Jesus preached or are living in the tradition of traditionalism, not matter what religion that we would call our own?

Jesus was given by God, so that all who heard the ‘Good News of His works, death on the tree/stake/cross would understand that their sin had been atoned for and that by His rising from the grave they are promised Eternity with Him!

But many have chosen to reject this good news or they have twisted the words of the Bible to suit their own agenda of what they want to believe God is like and will do for them?

Isaiah 53:1-12,   Amos 5:4,   John 3:3,   14-21,   Acts 4:12,    Revelation 3:19-20.

Our Mothers?

Always wanting the best!

Mothering Sunday is about showing respect and honour for our parents, who have done their best for us? Not all family situations are perfect for many reasons and not all of have had a happy relationship with our mothers?

This time of the year is to show our appreciation, but it should be more than gifts but rather service to see how they are doing and what they really perhaps need from us?

Mary was the mother of Jesus and she was at times really worried for her son, but she did not always fully understand what the role of her Son was until after the event!

Matthew 1:18-24,   2:11,  13:55,  John 9:23,  19:25,  Acts 1:14,  Ephesians 6:1,  Colossians 3:20.

‘I Have a Dream!

Martin Luther King and Bloody Sunday?

It is ironic that the words of this North-American civil rights preacher would lead to the rights of Catholics in Ireland and the eventual tragedy of ‘Bloody Sunday?

Martin Luther Kings words still and will continue to have impact around the world until the Lords return, for every oppressed peoples and cultures! Crossing racial, colour and cultural backgrounds and inspiring much needed freedom in this world!

Much can be said about his failings, well the Holy Bible tells us that we are all sinners! So stop pointing fingers in your self proclaimed righteousness and try Jesus today, while also seeking to help all who are oppressed in society and culture!

Joel 2:28,   Acts 2:17,   Leviticus 6:2,   Judges 4:3,   Psalm 9:9,   72:13,  103:13,   Matthew 18:27,   Luke 4:18,   Acts 10:38,  Hebrews 11:37.

Twenty-Nineteen?

What to Expect!

Going by the years that have gone past in our individual lives, about the same? We all do hope of better things, peace, prosperity, love, kindness and much more that is good and beneficial in many ways!

But we also have to face the many realities of life and that is of disasters and death, that must come to all of us eventually! 

The New Year 2019 also brings us opportunities in relation to where we stand with God today in our lives, the possibility of New Things and also of Salvation in the full assurances that Jesus will forgive us and save us from our failings!

Leviticus 19:26,   John 4:23-24,   Acts 1:7,   Colossians 2:2-15,   1 Thessalonians 5:1,  Hebrews 11:5.
