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.

Anti-Semitism!

The problems with Racism?

No human alive today on this planet can say that they are not without hating a race, colour, creed or religion, we are all guilty of this sin!

We like our own space and culture, we like to be with our own people and sometimes we do not want to mix with the other side?

Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, sectarianism and a plethora of many more names sums up this kind of hatred and jealousy of each other including racism!

God told us that He gave His one and only Son Jesus, because He loved the world, meaning all races, skin colours! But it is the sin in our own hearts that blocks us off from either coming to the truth of the New Life or holding on to that promised Eternity!

Ecclesiastes 7:7,    Jeremiah 2:14,   29-11-13,    John 3:3,   15-18,   Romans 3:22-23,   6:22-23.

‘Out of Control? Two.

Wickedness!

The freedom of choice has allowed humanity to choose its destiny and today the world is full of wickedness, turn on the Tv, media, computers, read the papers, even conversation in the club, bar and home evil, war, murder, killing, disasters are the prevalent news?

But this choice will lead to our ultimate destiny of disaster and being cut off from God for eternity!

People do not want to see these truths, they want for themselves and they want excuses to block off faith, religion in their lives! Many go through the practice of religion, because mummy and daddy did it, its a tradition and nothing more?

But some have faith, misguided or not there is still the opportunity to know the truth of Jesus death and resurrection and to find that personal relationship directly to our Father God without the need of Mary or another legalistic way!

Psalm 13:14,  112:4,   Amos 5:4,  John 3:3-36,  12:46,  16:33,  1 John 2:L13-14,  Revelation 7:14.

Orangism! One.

The exclusive Brother/sisterhood?

The protestant orange order has caused more problems in Ireland than in any other part of the former British Empire, because of its provocative attitude?

The organisation was set up to protect protestant interests in business, property and political power and religious exclusiveness! Which it has held on to for nearly 250 years, but it is not enforced by legal mean but rather by the secret society of the Freemasons and popular tribal violence?

Nothing of this ”Christian order” is Christian and its a sham to protect settlers from Cornwall, Wales, England and Scotland. Some Orange people profess a faith in God, but when questioned they are bias to their own identity and refuse to the Gospel message to outsiders!

John 3:16,    Proverbs 6:19,    2 Corinthians 11:26,    Galatians 2:4.

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!

Joshua 24:14,   1 Corinthians 5:8,   2 Corinthians 1:12,  17,   8:8,   Revelation 1:7,   5:5.

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.

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.
