WHO!

COVID19/Lung infection Virus.

This is a new strain of something that was first identified in 1969, after astronauts returned from the Moon landings, then around the millennium years another strain was at play in the U.S. and now this one breaking out in China after talks with a U.S. business delegation?

Meanwhile the U.S. President has a magic hunch now as how to cure his own problem that is trying to ruin the world, particularly the European Union is a business way?

What should our response as believers be, like Jesus who we claim to follow or know?

Jesus dealt with leprosy in His day, which was contagious and put fear into people, since there was no known cure for it! Many nursing people and carers will be daily dealing with this infection now and they need support, encouragement and prayer!

Not empty shelves, arrogant people and selfishness or self-interest to the dangers of breaking quarantine and other measures that will have to be enforced to stop cross-infection?

Proverbs 30:15,  Mark 1:34,  7:22,  Luke 17:1-17,  Romans 3:21-31,  1 Thessalonians 2:5.

LOVE?

Agape and Eros!

The world thinks it has plenty of love today, everyone is loving each other and yet there is murder, stabbings and terrorism as never seen before, without real reasons rather than being indiscriminate?

The world loves the sinful side of love that clashes with the true love of God, because the world refuses to obey, but would rather go its own way?

We have something that is truly amazing and yet we fail much of the time to share it even in fellowship, let alone with the world around us!

Psalm 103:8,   John 3:16-17,  1 Corinthians 13:4,  1 John 1:9-10,   Jude 1:21.

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.

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.

Nigeria in conflict Again?

Like much of Africa!

We only hear what the media sometimes wants to tell us about what s going on in the world? The situation in Nigeria is complex as it is many other places, but one has to wonder if Iran might be trying to stir up some sectarian conflict as it probably has in Yemen?

Many nations on the continent of Africa have never really got over their break from the various colonial powers that illegally ruled them in the 19th Century? Counter revolution has been the only way for many to get was needed done instead of seeking a democratic way!

God owns our world, even thou Satan has been cast down to wonder in the remote parts of it and cause trouble working through human weakness of our inherited sinful condition! It is we who must seek the Lord for our Salvation knowing that His one and only son Jesus has made the final atonement for our sins!

Genesis 10:5,   Psalm 9:5,  17,  47:3,   59:8,   John 3:3,  14-18,   Acts 4:12,   Romans 3:22-23,   Philippians 1:30,   1 Thessalonians 2:2,   Hebrews 4:12,   20:32.

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.

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.
