Spreading Out. Part-Two.

We have work to Do.

Our Testimony may not seem much to us, but to a lost world and the societies around us it is a God send. All kinds of people today around us are living in despair and darkness and many want answers to what ‘is life all about?

Jesus is the only answer and we who believe in Him should know this and want to share it with the outsiders. Witnessing ones faith is easy, we can talk about what God does for us every day in the simplest of things.

John 4:23,  Acts 26:18,  Colossians 1:6.

Holy Spirit Promised. Part-One.

Empowerment.

As believers without the Holy Spirit we could do nothing, we would not be saved. It is the Holy Spirit in this New disspensation that leads us to greater things, in the application of our faith.

In the past it was poured out on individuals to serve the will of God, Abraham, Moses, David and many more. But now all believers recieve a share of Him, the Spirirt of God.

Acts 1:8,  2:4,  Romans 15:19.

Evil and Wickedness. Part-Four.

Ghosts and communing with the Dead.

Do you know there are ghosts, Jesus mentions them in the New Testament. But talking to the dead on any kind of level is a forbidden practice by God’s standards. What was done in the past, now must not be returned to.

‘All Hallows is about the power of God, through His Son Jesus to crush the power of Satan in our lives. That is only for those who want to seek having Faith and those who are living by faith in the work of Jesus on the cross for us and the power of His resurrection from the grave.

Leviticus 19:31,  20:6,  Isaiah 44:24-25,   Act 19:18-19

Evil and Wickedness. Part-Three.

Bribery.

At the best of times this is not a good idea or place to be in and yet it is very much part of the ‘All Hallows/Halloween event. We traditionally know it as ‘Trick and Treat.’ You basically give us a gift or the mob will do something nasty to you.

Yes there is a kind of fun children’s game here, but there is also a serious lesson for us to learn that as adults it becomes an ever present reality.

Exodus 23:8,   Deuteronomy 27:25.

All Hallows. Part-One.

All Hallows or Halloween has always been a big event in Ireland, even though Christianity has enveloped it. October 31st.

Many new features have been added from the U.S., like the toffee apples and the pumpkin. But essentially everything else is the same, with black men and trick n’ treating.

But the origins of this festival goes back to Celtic times, when like other northern European people this was the New Year. The festival was the celebration of cattle purification through fire, while a gate portal was believed open between the dead and the living. A chance for dead ancestors to visit their living relatives.

Some of this Celtic religion is now adapted and employed in to modern witchcraft or Wicca and so there are darker elements at work.  Leviticus 19:31,  Galatians 5:19-21.
