Nigeria in conflict Again?

Like much of Africa!

We only hear what the media sometimes wants to tell us about what s going on in the world? The situation in Nigeria is complex as it is many other places, but one has to wonder if Iran might be trying to stir up some sectarian conflict as it probably has in Yemen?

Many nations on the continent of Africa have never really got over their break from the various colonial powers that illegally ruled them in the 19th Century? Counter revolution has been the only way for many to get was needed done instead of seeking a democratic way!

God owns our world, even thou Satan has been cast down to wonder in the remote parts of it and cause trouble working through human weakness of our inherited sinful condition! It is we who must seek the Lord for our Salvation knowing that His one and only son Jesus has made the final atonement for our sins!

Genesis 10:5,   Psalm 9:5,  17,  47:3,   59:8,   John 3:3,  14-18,   Acts 4:12,   Romans 3:22-23,   Philippians 1:30,   1 Thessalonians 2:2,   Hebrews 4:12,   20:32.

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.

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.

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.

‘Out of Control? One.

Sexual Abuse!

This conclusion is not acceptable to the many victims and their families, because it shows to us that the Church has been left unchecked and probably deliberately for a long time by the many who thought they would remain untouchable?

How wrong they were and how sad it is to know that institutions set up to do good were nothing more than a hypocritical stance on justified murder of babies that could not be aborted by woman making that free choice themselves!

What is the answer to all of this, the courts of each land should be allowed to prosecute the clergy for crimes against the people! The Church will ultimately have to answer to God on Judgement day, as the same for all of humanity for their idles words and actions this being a very scary prospect for the people of faith!

Matthew 18:6,   Mark 9:42,   Luke 17:2,   Romans 10:8-11,   Revelation 18:21.

Workers Rights?

1st May.

Exploitation continues, despite the abolition of black slavery? The end of colonial slavery was replaced by the Industrial revolution and the need for mass cheap labour! Many children were forced down the mines and into the mill machine cleaning, people were forced to live in back to back housing and vile conditions!

The 19th Century say the rise of Socialist idealism and the workers Utopia of rights and farer conditions, sometimes coming at great coast? Capitalism was the driving forces of big business, apart from some Christian efforts to appease their workers, there was little care for the workers and their families?

Today many people are working for little or nothing and this is not right, if we claim to know Jesus then we should show, care, concern and love for the less fortunate?

Genesis 31:7-8,   Luke 10:34,   John 4:36,   Romans 3:23,   6:23.
