God so Loved…! Two.

Old Story, New Message?

Easter is an old story that the world fails to want to understand and yet it will be told again, today with new technology and many people around the world will be saved from their past failures and allowed to enter in to the New Life of a personal relationship with Jesus and our Father!

Easter is about atonement for sins, once and for all time, the giving of the promised New Life and the need for many to find faith in these dire times!  Exodus 10:17,

We as believers have a great responsibility to share with the dying Jesus, with our loved one, friends and even enemies that, For God so Loved the world, that He gave to us His one and only Son!  John 3:14-18.

Psalm 119:4,   Amos 5:4,   Luke 15:7,   John 3:3,   14:1-6,   Acts 3:19,   Romans 6:22-23. 

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.

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.

 

 

Doing good & Speaking the Truth?

The cost of faith in Jesus!

Sadly we are living in an age where it is getting harder to be a believer in Jesus, we may claim much but when it comes to doing what is right and speaking the world will do its best to shut us out?

But despite the fear and threats of people, we who have to truth have to point it out to this lost world! Even though it mite cost us loosing our jobs, being excluded or being killed as so many continue to be world-wide?

Psalm 37:4,  141:8,   Jeremiah 29:11, 13,   Matthew 7:7,   Acts 6:5-7:59,   Romans 2:7, Galatians 6:9,   Revelation 3:20.

Having Attitude?

The driving forces!

It all depends on what our attitude is to certain situations and this will also reveal the condition of our hearts and motives?

Human idealism and dogmatic stances will lead to legalistic ideas that will block progress and insight fear or drive a position of refusing to understand the needs of others!

It might seem right, when it is not and many Christians have been ensnared in these attitudes for generations turning what they had from religious freedom into death and having no ability to fully comprehend the truths of Jesus and the Holy Bible?

Numbers 14:24,   Philippians 2:5,   4:5,   Titus 3:2.

PRIDE!

Nationalism, politics and Sexuality?

We have to write from the context of the Bible in relation to this matter of human failure and a misunderstanding of what Pride is and what it means is not good!

God has no time for pride or the proud, because it is a self-imposed block to faith! We see it at work everyday in our world, people stubborn, disobedient and restless to oppose God and man in not giving up their traditions, marching and walking forcing their religious beliefs on others with threats of death?

Trying to prove to others that they have to accept their new ways or their political views of segregation and many other twisted ideals!

But God has offered to us in love His one and only Son Jesus, all who repent and place their faith in Him will be saved from the twisted ideals of humanity and their past failures!

Leviticus 26:19,   Job 35:12,   Proverbs 8:13,   13:10,   Mark 7:22,   Romans 12:9,   1 Corinthians 13:4,   2 Corinthians 5:14,   Hebrews 13:5,   James 1:12,  1 John 1:3.
