Free Derry?

Republican Activism!

Its been twenty years since peace was declared by the IRA with good intentions, but not in Londonderry it seems that a hotel bar wanting to view the British Royal wedding on Saturday 19th May and other venues in County Donegal in the Republic have been warned that this is not acceptable!

Who said it that, The IRA have not gone away’? Unionism will play it for all its worth, but on the same hand still discriminate against the Catholic population?  What can one do but condemn those who are acting in the name of their own political interests and this has been brought on by the DUP’s political failure to cause a vacuum in nationalism!

A selfish Society! One.

Sincerity and Morals?

It would seem as one gets older the world is changing to be a less better place, and yet one remembers my mum and dad saying the same things in their latter years too!

The Holy Bible does warn us that in the last days the love of many will grow cold, now that is expected of the world but not of fellow believers?

Sadly this is a fact that needs to be addressed in the Ekklesia, because if we claim to know God and have not love for others then their is something seriously wrong!

Psalm 63:11,  Proverbs 28:25,  Matthew 24:12,  Romans 5:11,  2 Corinthians 12:20, James 3:16.

Crossroads. Two.

Living in the power of the Resurrection?

There are some people who believe or claim a faith in Jesus, but they fail to fathom the rising of Jesus the man from the grave?

This a serious flaw in the Christian faith, like that of denying that a loving God would send people to Hell! But without faith in the resurrection of Jesus, we cannot enter into the promised New Life!

All who witnessed Jesus rising from the dead where changed people, their faith was made full and they were empowered to press on believing, applying Jesus teaching and serving God!

John 11:24-24,  Acts 1:22,  4:33,  Romans 1:4,  6:5,  1 Corinthians 15:12-13,  Colossians 1:13, 1 Peter 1:23.

I Patrick a Sinner! One.

Many claims on Him?

We now know that there were several Patricks sent to Ireland to convert the pagans to Christianity, but this Patrick was different in that he did come on a mission but rather as he says a slave!

Today the many traditions each place their own claim on him in relation to nationality, but it was Patrick who said later in life, ‘We Irish!

Patrick was a British-Romano Christian and his times have nothing to do with the Britain that has been existence this last thousand years! His family perhaps felt no need to return to Italy and stayed on working their lands, but Celtic pirate raids started to become more and more widespread and eventually Patrick was captured!

He tells from his writings that he was a rebel and most youth are to their parents? But he had some faith and this came to play in his mind and heart, when faced with the west and cold conditions he was expected to work in!

His whole life from these two sets of writings reveal and ordinary man, struggling to cope with the conditions around him like so many of us today!

2 Corinthians 4:1-5,  5:1-2,  1 John 4:10-11,  19.

The value of Prayer!

Three weeks of the flu and complications?

Sometimes we tend to consider that prayer is just something to be said in Church, one must say that one is thankful to those who prayed for me!

In November one got the flu and every time I looked down I wanted to vomit, the dizziness was another problem with orientation and now it has ben revealed that this years jab does not work!

God does hear the saints when they pray, in fact God hears all prayers and that makes Him unique against the many other religions and what they claim to believe!

1 Kings 8:45,  2 Chronicles 6:40,  Psalm 4:1,  Matthew 21:22,  Acts 6:4,   Philippians 4:6, James 5:15.

Evil Times?

We have been Warned!

Believers should realise by now that we are living in the last days, before the return of our Lord Jesus to take us home! The bible tells us that things are only going to get worse and that means more of everything that is bad?

But it also means that many believers will fall away into false teachings that oppose God, even the elected (Ministers, Priests, Vicars and Pastors) will too turn from the truth to follow things that displease the Lord!

Being selfish and lovers of themselves, indifferent and not having love of forgiveness but still appear as if they do?

2 Thessalonians 2:2-3,  John 14:27,  Matthew 7:15,  2 Peter 3:17.
