Remembering the Fallen?

Armistice and Bitterness!

Old wounds in Ireland take a long time to heal, we have come a long way with peace, but not so the Protestants and their loyalties to Britain!

Despite much hurt and betrayal Ireland has south to move on, but there remains much animosity in Republicans as much as in Loyalists? Despite seeing a common ground between the social classes there remains a division that may never really be healed!

Division is the continued layout of remembering in France and Belgium based on religious backgrounds!

But God wants believers not to be caught up in the idealism of national identity, but rather to remember those who went before us and to be thankful  to God for His redemptive work and promise of Salvation and Eternal Life!

Proverbs 4:22, 13:7,  Malachi 4:2,  Luke 12:51,  John 9:16,  Hebrews 9:11-12,  14,  12:1-2.

‘Out of Control? Two.

Wickedness!

The freedom of choice has allowed humanity to choose its destiny and today the world is full of wickedness, turn on the Tv, media, computers, read the papers, even conversation in the club, bar and home evil, war, murder, killing, disasters are the prevalent news?

But this choice will lead to our ultimate destiny of disaster and being cut off from God for eternity!

People do not want to see these truths, they want for themselves and they want excuses to block off faith, religion in their lives! Many go through the practice of religion, because mummy and daddy did it, its a tradition and nothing more?

But some have faith, misguided or not there is still the opportunity to know the truth of Jesus death and resurrection and to find that personal relationship directly to our Father God without the need of Mary or another legalistic way!

Psalm 13:14,  112:4,   Amos 5:4,  John 3:3-36,  12:46,  16:33,  1 John 2:L13-14,  Revelation 7:14.

Faith always wins Through!

Over Traditionalism?

We hear much about the Christian religion in the media, but we don’t get to hear of the good things that are happening around the world and all over the place?

New things, God moving changing lives, wars ending, people talking, trying to make peace, new schools, hospitals, pumps for water in deserts and much more!

What God really wants is for His believers to keep living by faith and not caught up in the deadness of ritualism and traditions!

Psalm 36:3,   Acts 10:38,   Ephesians 6:7,   1 Peter 2:15,   20,   3:6.
