Vision with God! One.

Forgetting the Past?

Believers in Jesus must let go of the past, memories, bad company, families, history? It is a challenge to be a Christian without labels, it is hard to love those who hate and oppose us?

Many nations claim religion and set their tribes out for all to see, while they claim they know Jesus? But they are self-opinionated and self-right, their view is the only view thus they have become narrow minded?

We are asked by the Lord to follow His ways and forget what has gone before, but me more a people of vision looking forward to His return and all things New!

Philippians 3:13,  Matthew 11:28-30,  Luke 9:62,  Psalm 27:4,  Revelation 21:2.

International Terrorism.

Religious Mania.

The British will mark Guy Fawkes night tomorrow with fire works and bonfires, but how many people know who and what Guy Fawkes the centre of this tradition was all about?

Today everyone in Europe has to be politically correct and yet there remains the stigma towards, black people, travellers and the Jews?

The world faces a new religious fanatical deluded enemy lead by some very clever people, who one day perhaps might deck the halls of the United Nations at the cost of many innocent woman and children killed by their suicide soldiers in markets, schools and many other soft targets.

God will never allow evil to overcome good, that is why he sent His son Jesus to us so that we by trusting in Him could be forgiven. loved and set free from the blindness and wickedness of this dark world!

Lamentations 2:14,  Ezekiel 22:28,  Matthew 7:15,  Romans 12:21,  Philippians 3:18.

Finding comfort in the Bible. Part-Three.

Knowing God.

The world claims that it wants to find peace, this is the solution to all of humanities problems? But the more it claims peace, the more it does war? We often hear people in the Middle-East and Africa say, ”That they are a peace loving people, and tomorrow they chop off the heads of their prisoners in the name of God?

When we come to know God, through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, we have been set free from legalism and idolatry into a New Life relationship! And now that we are in this New place, we understand by the Power of the Holy Ghost/Spirit within us that we have a peace and a hope that the world can never have because of their open rebellion and rejection of God!

John 14:27,  Isaiah 9:6,  Romans 15:13,  1 Corinthians 13:13,  Philippians 4:7.

Finding comfort in the Bible. One.

The Psalms.

For centuries now believers have turned to the book of the Psalms in their times of need to find solace and comfort? Many ask where should I look, there are many relevant psalms such as 23 and 91.

But there is also Psalm 119, which in connection with Psalm one could be a devotional in its own right! When life gets rough and people wear us down Psalm 37 can for some be very handy.

When deppresed or under the weather Psalm 40 may also help us? In fact spending the first 31 days reading those respective Psalms gives a good taste of what is to come?

Rumours of Wars. TWO

Strife, Terror.

Evil people are good at using idele hands to do their bidding!

The Middle-East is full of disabled children,and woman being used as huma shields and then thos who try to practice democrasy be accused of war crimes.

Here in Europe we have to deal daily with mentally ill men stabbing and shooting people going about their own business. Police and intelligance either cannot find a link, because of ease of Internet access to videos and hate sermons.

We on the other hand have to keep trusting Jesus through all of this, without worrying!

Matthew 10:26-28,  Mark 12:14,  John 14:27, Romans 8:13, 15, Ephesians 6:4.
