Being lifted Up. One.

Encouraged to Persevere?

One can not say that to have faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus will make us friends of the world? We may be called to serve in the world, but we must never think that Gods ways will be tolerated by the lost!

Everyday Christians are under strains from the daily pressures of life and this can be the same wither we are married, single of celibate. At times it can become unbearable, that we give in and compromise, but thank God we can repent and ask for Jesus forgiveness and get back on track once more!

As believers we have a Spiritual armoury, not of weapons that world uses to kill each other, but to counter all those arguments, questions, jeering and rejection that the world throws at us in their attempt to undermine the power of God!

2 Corinthians 10:4-7,   Job 5:11,   Psalm 138:6,   Romans 12:2,   Philippians 2:1.

Vision with God! Two.

Knowing the need to be Free?

Freedom is the key to salvation through the good works of Jesus on the cross and His rising from the dead! Without faith that the son Jesus can set us free, we live in the vision of God daily!

There is no need of Mass, but instead the Communion table of believers in fellowship with God! We need no intercessor, since Jesus must be the focus of our prayers and relationship!

People both in the world and the Church will stop us from serving God, by making rules that imply it is they who are called and not anyone? This flies in the face of what the Apostle Paul said about himself, and the many that have followed in their personal relationship with Jesus!

John 3:15-21,  8:7,  32,  2 Corinthians 11:6,  1 Timothy 1:12-13.

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.

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.

Deliver us from Evil. One.

Satan and His Works.

Living in the world and practising our faith will quickly bring us into contact with the opposition forces of darkness?

But we are a redeemed people, bought back and covered by the blood of Jesus!

Because we know these things pertaining to our salvation and New Life, we must press on and not allow anything to try and knock us back.

Matthew 6:13,  Galatians 1:4,  1 John 3:8.
