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.

‘Coming Home?

ISIL/S Fighters!

These warriors of Islam are now coming home for Christmas, from Turkey, Syria and Iraq, since they are no longer wanted there?

Many nations believed to let them go and that they would either be killed or left to fend for themselves, we the west neglected to take responsibility but instead play the blame of Al-Assad and Putin are the problem?

Now we are really up the river with no paddles, as we have to face the truth and start to deal with addressing another kind of terrorism at home!

Deuteronomy 20:1,   Matthew 12:36,   18:23,    Jude 1:3.

The Philippines?

Islands of disasters and Troubles!

The history of this island archipelago is that of sadness from conflicts to natural disasters, from dictatorships to epidemics and President Duterte?

The people are perhaps some of the most resilient on the planet or so it would seem, but one is sure that the pains of loss never really go away and suffering probably continues in silence?

The islands are plighted with on going terrorism in the southern islands of Mindanao and Jolo and the threat to Manilla is always there despite U.S. troops being in the country! The war on the drug cartels continue, despite some injustices but before Mr. Duterte came to office the situation was way out of hand and effected nearly every family?

Religious faith in great in this nation, it keeps many going! But to know the Lord as your personal Saviour is even more important to encourage believers to push and press on with education and science to improve their nation with innovation?

Meanwhile the Philippines needs our prayers also, especially when it is out of the media headlines!

Deuteronomy 1:38,   1 Samuel 23:16,   Psalm 119:28,   Isaiah 40:1,  Romans 1:12,   15:4,  Colossians 2:2,   1 Thessalonians 5:11,   1 Timothy 5:1,   Hebrews 3:13,   2 Peter 3:1.

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.

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.

Families! Two.

Sense of Belonging?

The world is a hard place, especially when families go all wrong and love is conditional?

Many people today claim that they were not loved by their parents and yet forty to fifty years ago, working conditions and time off for child care was both hard and not available?

Loneliness is another factor in our society, even for married couples when they get older?

What is the remedy to these situations, faith in God and knowing the Lord allows us un-limited access into the Church! But still many Christians to have the same problems as the world, but this should not be?

Genesis 22:8,    John 1:29,   Mark 15:41,   1 Timothy 3:5,   5:3,   Jude 1:12.

‘Out of Control? One.

Sexual Abuse!

This conclusion is not acceptable to the many victims and their families, because it shows to us that the Church has been left unchecked and probably deliberately for a long time by the many who thought they would remain untouchable?

How wrong they were and how sad it is to know that institutions set up to do good were nothing more than a hypocritical stance on justified murder of babies that could not be aborted by woman making that free choice themselves!

What is the answer to all of this, the courts of each land should be allowed to prosecute the clergy for crimes against the people! The Church will ultimately have to answer to God on Judgement day, as the same for all of humanity for their idles words and actions this being a very scary prospect for the people of faith!

Matthew 18:6,   Mark 9:42,   Luke 17:2,   Romans 10:8-11,   Revelation 18:21.
