Crimes out of Control?

The ages of Anarchy!

It would seem now that no matter where we live the world is going mad in crime and the forces that we pay for to protect are either being cut back or corrupt in not helping the poor?

We have opened this New Year with more madness, kinappings, egoistical leadership, war mongering, famine, vengance, knife and gun crimes on the increase!

One has to look at our televisions to see that we are seriously being influenced in soaps to live in bad ways and this is just acceptable? But if we are people of faith we must be apart from the ways of the world and this by the love of Jesus!

John 5:23-24,   Galatians 5:8,    Hebrews 4:12,   1 Peter 1:14,   2 Peter 1:4.

 

 

The Value of Christmas? Two.

A time of answers and Miracles!

The Christmas story is full of answers and miracles, it shows us a loving God who is giving us His one and only Son so that we might believe and be saved back into a personal relationship with Him!

But the world chases after its own answers believing that psychology, sparkling things and money will fill the voids of doubts, disappointment and pain? People turn to alcohol, to tech, to financial security and some to the religion of their choice believing that by austere living they can purge themselves?

Salvation is only found in Jesus and that of seeking His forgiveness and turning away from our pasts knowing that He will give to us a New Life!

Luke 1:46-56,    67-79,    2:25-32,    34-35,    36-38,    John 1:1-5,    3:3,    3:15-16,    Galatians 3:13,    4:4-5.

The Value of Christmas? One.

In todays Society!

The world has changed, but humanity has not in relation to attitude and failure and God does not change in His love and other roles!

Christmas is a time of celebration, festivals and family, but it is equally a time of loneliness, regret, rejection and bad thoughts?

God gave to the world His one and only Son Jesus, that by faith we would find a hope and a salvation through his suffering, death and resurrection for us on the cross!

It is up to us to make these essential choices that mark out our eternal destinies?

Numbers 24:17,   Isaiah 7:14,   9:7,   Matthew 2:2-11,   Luke 2:7-20,   John 3:3-7,  14-17.

BREXIT!

Selling out Peace in Ireland?

The English do not care about what happens in far away Ireland the land of the ‘Little people, who they can walk over when they take the whim?

The Peace process will now be lost to new groups who want to return to violence as with the killing of the journalist McKee! PM Boris Johnson has no time for none-whites or the Irish, the deaths of another 3000 people are worth his pipe dream?

Christian values, where have they gone in all this while the British media tell their own people lies a large bomb in the city of London will be too late to the fate of these islands once more?

Leviticus 26:6,   Deuteronomy 28:65,   Psalm 120:6-7,   Matthew 5:9,   Luke 1:79,   Romans 12:18,   1 Peter 3:11.

Waiting on God?

‘Not to become Impatient!

Wither we are waiting in a que of anything or that of an answer to prayer, we must learn to be patient with our circumstances?

Those first Disciples of our Lord were told to wait in Jerusalem, for the out pouring of the Holy Spirit! But they did not know it would be only ten days, as we do 2000 years later!

But they did not sit about in this period but got on with the business of the early Ekklesia and then to their joy what was promised came and infilled them with gifting and empowerment to serve thousands across the Roman Empire and into many lands further a field!

Proverbs 8:34,   Mark 11:24,   Acts 1:4,  12-26,   Romans 12:12,   Ephesians 6:18,  1 Thessalonians 1:3,   James 5:7,   2 Peter 3:9,    Jude 1:21.

Talking about Jesus?

To a decaying World!

Many believers I meet tell me that it is getting more difficult to share our faith in God, because the world wants their god to fit in to their ideas of who and what He is rather than us fitting into His will!

That is a tough area to be in, while most people today do not want to hear either about God or religion and yet there is so much unhappiness and despair!

The problem with religion is that there has been a failure to preach the gospel and many people believe that to be a Christian is just to follow the rules of we must not do this or that, steal, murder, commit adultery, be good living people and go to Church on a regular basis?

John 3:18-21,   1 Timothy 1:13-15,    2 Timothy 3:10,    James 2:5,    Revelation 2:13.

Suffering Servant! Part-Three.

Gaining the Victory?

When Jesus rose from the dead on the third day, as He said He would He gained the victory over death and for us entry into the New Life!

We have to be born-again to taste Eternity, religious observance, wearing a Christian name tag, doing good works bowing down or praying to saints will not get us to Heaven?

The confession of sins, repentance and faith in the death of Jesus on the cross and His rising from the dead lets us know that God has forgiven our past failures and we know are in Him.

Matthew 17:33,   Luke 18:33,   John 3:3,   31-36,   Acts 4:12,   1 Corinthians 15:57,   1 John 5:4.
