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.

Suffering Servant! Part-One.

Believed the Message?

Have we believed the message of Jesus preached or are living in the tradition of traditionalism, not matter what religion that we would call our own?

Jesus was given by God, so that all who heard the ‘Good News of His works, death on the tree/stake/cross would understand that their sin had been atoned for and that by His rising from the grave they are promised Eternity with Him!

But many have chosen to reject this good news or they have twisted the words of the Bible to suit their own agenda of what they want to believe God is like and will do for them?

Isaiah 53:1-12,   Amos 5:4,   John 3:3,   14-21,   Acts 4:12,    Revelation 3:19-20.

Anti-Semitism!

The problems with Racism?

No human alive today on this planet can say that they are not without hating a race, colour, creed or religion, we are all guilty of this sin!

We like our own space and culture, we like to be with our own people and sometimes we do not want to mix with the other side?

Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, sectarianism and a plethora of many more names sums up this kind of hatred and jealousy of each other including racism!

God told us that He gave His one and only Son Jesus, because He loved the world, meaning all races, skin colours! But it is the sin in our own hearts that blocks us off from either coming to the truth of the New Life or holding on to that promised Eternity!

Ecclesiastes 7:7,    Jeremiah 2:14,   29-11-13,    John 3:3,   15-18,   Romans 3:22-23,   6:22-23.

‘I Have a Dream!

Martin Luther King and Bloody Sunday?

It is ironic that the words of this North-American civil rights preacher would lead to the rights of Catholics in Ireland and the eventual tragedy of ‘Bloody Sunday?

Martin Luther Kings words still and will continue to have impact around the world until the Lords return, for every oppressed peoples and cultures! Crossing racial, colour and cultural backgrounds and inspiring much needed freedom in this world!

Much can be said about his failings, well the Holy Bible tells us that we are all sinners! So stop pointing fingers in your self proclaimed righteousness and try Jesus today, while also seeking to help all who are oppressed in society and culture!

Joel 2:28,   Acts 2:17,   Leviticus 6:2,   Judges 4:3,   Psalm 9:9,   72:13,  103:13,   Matthew 18:27,   Luke 4:18,   Acts 10:38,  Hebrews 11:37.

Twenty-Nineteen?

What to Expect!

Going by the years that have gone past in our individual lives, about the same? We all do hope of better things, peace, prosperity, love, kindness and much more that is good and beneficial in many ways!

But we also have to face the many realities of life and that is of disasters and death, that must come to all of us eventually! 

The New Year 2019 also brings us opportunities in relation to where we stand with God today in our lives, the possibility of New Things and also of Salvation in the full assurances that Jesus will forgive us and save us from our failings!

Leviticus 19:26,   John 4:23-24,   Acts 1:7,   Colossians 2:2-15,   1 Thessalonians 5:1,  Hebrews 11:5.

God with Us! Part-Two.

Prophecy fulfilled and the work of the Holy Spirit!

The birth of Jesus is the focus of what Christmas is really all about, how God became man in human flesh and how by the work of the Holy Spirit Mari remained a virgin to her husband Joseph!

It is a miracle like the many that we find in the Bible, but people today reject everything that is not rational to their understanding? They cannot believe God, making all sorts of excuses about Him in relation to suffering, starvation, natural disaster not being prevented?

But in this story of the events around Jesus we see the prophetic being fulfilled, the same is also in the work of our repentance and salvation! Being turned from being cold and callous to God to being open and understanding that we have a loving father in God almighty!

Isaiah 9:6-7,   Matthew 1:22-23,   Luke 1:1-45,   Hebrews 2:14-15,   Revelation 22:16. 

Preparation’s for Christmas?

Black Friday to Christmas Eve!

The mad rush now for the Christmas season has began with American style hype over their sales? But this is more than the season of merriment, it is also the time for scammers to be at work online for those unsuspecting bargain hunters?

In this mad rush and as the days near what is now termed the holidays, it seems each year the world looses sight of what this season is really about? Cards, trees, Santa, snowmen, are all slowly replacing, the baby Jesus born of the virgin, the wise men, shepherds and the truth of God giving to us the free gift of His one and only Son Jesus!

Isaiah 9:6-7,    Matthew 1:23,    Luke  1:27,    2 Corinthians 11:2.
