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.

Belivers and Christians. One.

In the Middle-East and North-Africa.

One noticed this past week the murder of Christians in Egypt by unknown Islamic terrorists and the failure to report these events in many Catholic European countries?

It was sad to see that the historical disunity continues over demoniational politics, between the Roman Church and the earlier Christian communites was still in bitter effect of minor doctrines?

No one really knows the heart of another and this is the same with believers, many of us will be suprised in Heaven to see who made it and did not? This is supposed to be the season of, ‘Peace and Good will than let us put our faith into deeds of kindness and mercy and throuugh it entertain Jesus Himself?

Matthew 22:14,   25:36-44,  Luke 2:15-20,  James 2:18-22.

 

 

Finding comfort in the Bible. Two.

Salvation.

Our need to be in fellowship with God, because most of the world is running around like headless chickens at this time? People are rushing here and there and everywhere and most of the time they are stuck in their mobile devices talking to people they do not know about nothing of any value?

Many people everyday are turning to God of the Holy Bible, out of despair, fear, and mental exhaustion? They want answers to what is this life all about?, Why am I here? and a list in a similar vain continues.

Becoming a Christian is a different experience for each one of us! Some where going along wondering about God, but not really interested and we were chosen! Others sought and found Him in Church, listening to TV or Radio? But all of us had to submit to His will by facing up to our failures and confessing to Jesus?

Amos 5:4,    5:14,    Proverbs 8:17,    Matthew 6:33.

Patrick…

Born-Again Christian.

We know so much about this man mostly from the two books that he was able to write and have survived 1500 years to be re-printed many times. He tells us something of his life as a Roman Britain and his ignorance as a young man.

He tells us about his capture by Irish raiders and being sold into slavery, he goes on to tell us about the harshness of life before his conversion and after. An important area to mention in relation to the struggles of many believers today.

Patrick tells us about Celtic-Gael culture, his escape and his visions of needing to return to a people he would fall in love with. Patrick was indeed a great man, an even better believer, always emphasising the need of Salvation and personal repentance.

Patrick built five Christian centre and one missionary outreach centre, for those who would take the Gospel message to Cymru/Wales, Curnow/Cornwall, and Alba/Scotland.

Psalm 25:11,  John 3:15-17,  36,  Romans 11:5-6,  1 Corinthians 5:8-10,  Ephesians 2:7-8, 1 Timothy 1:15-16,  Hebrews 7:25,   1 John 5:11-12.

 

Ireland in Africa. Part-One.

The witness of St. Patrick.

Many men and woman have and continue to serve for jesus in Africa and they continue to have a great influence in Christian matters. Saint Patrick has more of an influence today in the African continent that he ever had in bother Ireland and the British isles.

Patrick kept his faith in Jesus simple, but he always pointed to the cross and the need of a new birth and relationship with Jesus. His emphasis was not on good works, or the keeping of religious observance but of faith in action.

We hear daily of the terrible atrocious crimes and murders comitted against Christians and poor people in the name of God. Many nuns have been raped and murdered and yet despite all this wickedness the gospel of Jesus continues to spread and grow.

Acts 4:1,  8:1,   Romans 8:35,  2 Corinthians 5:19,   Philippians 1:18,  2 Timothy 4:5,   Revelation 7:14.

His love Endures. Part-One.

God-Jesus Forever.

There are many Christians out there who get very uptight when we start to perhaps challenge their view of God and Love. Sad to say that there are many doctrines in the Church related to love, that are down right wrong and complety misunderstand what the bible is saying.

Both Protestants and Catholics have allowed themselves to be deluded into a doctrine that has nothing to do with what God is saying through His word. The love of God will endure forever, what does that mean?

It means that God’s love is everlasting, even beyond the day of Judgement, because God is and He does not change.It is we who are always changing in actions and thoughts!

Psalm 103:17,  Romans 8;28-31,  James 1:12.

Wealth. Part-One.

Responsibility.

Many people today are rich and so are many Christians, but it is we who need to be responsible with how we use our wealth. Many Christians are into the prosperity gospel and with it believe they can bi-pass the poor and the weak around them.

Many people want to enjoy life and have it in this world, but they perhaps should read the bible in relation to the many accounts that Jesus told us about those kinds of people!

Job 22:6-9,  Luke 12:17-21,  16:19-31.
