Crossroads. One.

Easter the pivot of human History!

Jesus came to die for our sins on the Cross/stake/tree, this was His choice and ultimate calling for us to be saved! He was the sinless perfect man, the Messiah of Israel wither accepted or not and the saviour of the world!

Without the shedding of His blood in that one final atonement, there can be no remission of sins! Jesus did this for all who would by faith believe in Him, confessing and repenting of our sins.

There is no other way to be born-again, to be saved from the destiny of destruction that the world in its own achievement is heading for!

2 Corinthians 3:4-6,  5:18-20,  Luke 22:20,  Ephesians 2:13,  Hebrews 12:26,  1 Peter 3:18.

I Patrick a Sinner! One.

Many claims on Him?

We now know that there were several Patricks sent to Ireland to convert the pagans to Christianity, but this Patrick was different in that he did come on a mission but rather as he says a slave!

Today the many traditions each place their own claim on him in relation to nationality, but it was Patrick who said later in life, ‘We Irish!

Patrick was a British-Romano Christian and his times have nothing to do with the Britain that has been existence this last thousand years! His family perhaps felt no need to return to Italy and stayed on working their lands, but Celtic pirate raids started to become more and more widespread and eventually Patrick was captured!

He tells from his writings that he was a rebel and most youth are to their parents? But he had some faith and this came to play in his mind and heart, when faced with the west and cold conditions he was expected to work in!

His whole life from these two sets of writings reveal and ordinary man, struggling to cope with the conditions around him like so many of us today!

2 Corinthians 4:1-5,  5:1-2,  1 John 4:10-11,  19.

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.

Religious Freedom. Part-Two.

Christians under Attack!

Apart from us being easy targets are the Jewish religion and the main proponent to attack both of us is Islam, but after that is Atheism, Hindus and Buddhism!

Why, what are they afraid of? Because Christianity has to truth and offer’s all who hear and accept freedom from both religious and government controls!

Jews are hated even by Christians, but without them we would not have our Salvation! Muslims want to eradicate Israel, because they know and fear the return of Jesus who will reign from Jerusalem?

Other religions or non fear also Jesus return, because it will mean an end to their so called belief’s and systems that are nothing more than a pack of lies!

Isaiah 7:14,  Matthew 1:23,  24:18,  Mark 13:16,  Luke 1:27,  Romans 11:8-11,  Revelation 17:14,  19:16.

Religious Freedom. Part-One.

Christianity and Other?

There is a world history of Christianity clashing with other religions, because of our freedoms and their enforced legalism and idolatry? Many lands in Africa clash with Islam, but also with the many primitive religions and beliefs too some of which are nothing more than folklore?

Believers can get killed for their faith, for their failure to respect a certain prophet or a certain custom! Others do not like to see freedom from ritualism, from personality worship and from community control?

Isaiah 58:16,   Matthew 6:14,   John 8:32-33,   36,   Acts 13:46,   14:3,   22:28.

Called Too? Two.

Persevere!

This is an old fashioned word that appears not to be much in circulation today, yet it is a very active word for all believers to refuse the ways and the things of the world?

The world is telling us today that we deserve our freedoms to everything we want, and many believers are falling for this lie? Instead of persevering and refusing they are accepting and opening themselves up to evil!

God expects us to be obedient to Him and to the cost of Jesus shedding His blood on the cross/stake/tree for us!. Even before the cross Jesus’ back was like a ploughed field, this atonement is very precious indeed but many today either refuse to see or throw it away for temporary pleasures?

Genesis 32:24-28,  1 Kings 8:52-58,  Mark 14:38,   Ephesians 6:18,   1 Peter 2:24,   1 John 3:7.

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.
