Republic of South-Africa!

Hatred of foreigners and open Racism?

This is not what people around the world expected to ever hear, but it is the reality of the human heart that racism is a world-wide condition!

People get jealous when others make more money and can live better than the locals, some feel that they have been out done by the various incoming communities? But sometimes this is the cover for their failings of being lazy or over charging and they just don’t see why they should be undercut!

The business world is a hard place of competition and yet it is a wonderful place of offering variety and difference to people who have not seen, tasted or known new things?

Prayers are essential now that people are getting killed on the richest and most diverse International nation in Africa! Facing the facts of how we have failed is another and seeking that others will call on Jesus is a most vital line to follow that they be saved!

Genesis 37:11,  Psalm 55:1,   Proverbs 10:18,   26:26,   Matthew 20:15,   1 Corinthians 13:4,   Galatians 5:26,   Philippians 1:15,   Hebrews 12:3.

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.

Arrogance?

Those in Power!

Governments practice arrogance most of the time they like to make big promises or abuse peoples trust, and use disasters to prop up their re-election campaign or media publicity?

They believe that they can pull it off and they do for a time, but then all that hype and famous stuff about them starts to slip away as people seek that they are the real, ‘Fake News of their own making!

God does not like pride and arrogance, but especially those who profess a faith in Him! These folks will be taken down, if they refuse to humble themselves and to be seen doing it before the world, nation and God?

Psalm 131:1,   Proverbs 13:16,   Isaiah 2:17,   Matthew 23:12,   Luke 14:11,   1 Peter 5:5.

Seduced! Part-One.

Believers deluded by Sin?

It first started with Even in the garden of Eden, that is why the world has been in a mess ever since? But we are warned that in the latter times of the Ekklesia history, even the elect will be deceived by wrong teachings!

Some would say one is going to hammer on about sexuality, but it first started with dishonesty when Peter had to face a married couple lying to him about their wealth! This has gone on for centuries money issues with Christians in leadership, decency and much more in relation to not paying taxes, declaring works to cover for personal lifestyle?

Our enemy the Devil is crafty and He is attacking believers world-wide through thoughts and actions, through temptation and the twisting of God’s doctrines to suite His agenda of leading us astray!

Deuteronomy 5:33,   Proverbs 16:18,   1 Corinthians 13:4,   1 Timothy 4:1-3,   Hebrews 13:12.

Arrogance?

Another year of banging the Drums!

Arrogance is a terrible sin and we can all be accused of practicing it, but when it becomes something of a historical excuse and a trap to change as it has with N-Ireland and Orangeism in light of the sad death of a young woman trying to make a career in journalism and political parties refusing to meet out of past bitterness we are in a serious situation!

This is a problem world-wide, but great opportunities are being missed to press on with the peace, now that Brexit has become more of a threat than it seems over the reestablishment of the border that no one wants, and London does not care about neither the U.S. President Trump who makes it up as he goes along?

1 Samuel 15:23,   Job 35:12,   Psalm 75:5,   94:4,   Mark 7:22,   2 Corinthians 12:20,   1 John 2:16.

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.

Precious and Invaluable!

What we have been Given?

This a great time of the year to reflect on what God has done for us, between the Easter resurrection, the Ascension of Jesus and the coming of the Holy Spirit to those first believers gathered in Jerusalem for Pentecost!

We must consider that faith we have to believe the invisible and the impossible has been imparted to us through the ‘Good Works of Jesus and that we also have our belief which is invaluable more than anything this world can give to us.

Jesus said it to Satan during His time of temptation in the wilderness by Satan and this was written for us to in the society that we live in and face today. We must hold on and maintain what we have, while also sharing the love of Jesus that is in our hearts will all and those less fortunate in the world?

Matthew 4:1-1,  13:46,   1 Corinthians 3:15,   James 5:7,   1 Peter 1:7,  19,   2 Peter 1:1,  4.
