Terror Everywhere?

Fate!.

It would seem that we live in a different world from 9-11-2001, but we do not? It is the same old world, full of terrorism and murder!

The media are good at their job of pumping out propaganda and telling us the same line so long, that we start to believe it!

Fate is an actuality in the Bible, when Jesus pointed out the collapse of the tower of Siloam! Everyday we have to get on with our lives, more people are killed now in road traffic incidents and in the U.S.A. thousands each year are killed by the guns they claim protect them?

Luke 13:4,  Job 18:21,  Isaiah 1:28,   65:11,  Luke 22:37,   Acts 28:4.

Called Too? One.

Suffer for Jesus!

When we become believers we enter into a New life and relationship with God, through the good works of His one and only son! But we should know that we will be persecuted now for our faith, because Satan wants to take the peace and joy that we have in God away from us!

Persecution is not always a bad thing, the early Church in Jerusalem were scattered and by this the Gospel was spread further out into what we now term the Middle-East? Today Christians are suffering in many nations, where they are not recognised!

For many believers have to remain in a secretive state, from  Buddhist, Hindu and Islamic world to Communist nations such as China and North-Korea. There are as equal Christian religious movements too?

Matthew 13:21,  Acts 8:1,  11:19,  Romans 8:35,  1 Thessalonians 3:4,  7.

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.

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.

Mission. Part-One.

Past and Present.

We tend to think that this is not for our place, but going off to another land to share the ‘Christian Faith?’ After the events mentioned in Acts chapter two the Good News message of Jesus spread out then to the known Greek, Persian and Roman world, which in itself was quite big.

Many of those early believers paid with their lives within the Roman Empire for at least 300-years, being fed to the lions! But this message of Jesus death for the forgiveness of sins and His resurrection from the dead did not die away but continued to grow!

Africa and Britain saw the first believers arriving from 34AD to the influx by 126AD, but it is not known when the first buildings were erected for meetings came about?

Matthew 28:19-20,  Mark 16:15-16,  Luke 24:47-48,  Acts 1:8,  Romans 10:18,  Colossians 1:23.

Holocaust Memorial. Two.

Denial?

There are so many people in the world who deny history and God, they want so much to have everything fit their way and they also try at times desperately to hide their failing from near and far?

This is the true side of human nature, it has ben with humanity since the fall of Eve and Adam! But when we face the truth, we are on the road to being healed of the deception we are in and on the way to finding a New Life with Jesus as the Lord of our lives?

Joshua 24:27,   Matthew 10:33,   John 3:14-17,   Titus 1:16.
