Families! Two.

Sense of Belonging?

The world is a hard place, especially when families go all wrong and love is conditional?

Many people today claim that they were not loved by their parents and yet forty to fifty years ago, working conditions and time off for child care was both hard and not available?

Loneliness is another factor in our society, even for married couples when they get older?

What is the remedy to these situations, faith in God and knowing the Lord allows us un-limited access into the Church! But still many Christians to have the same problems as the world, but this should not be?

Genesis 22:8,    John 1:29,   Mark 15:41,   1 Timothy 3:5,   5:3,   Jude 1:12.

Easter Everyday?

500 Witnesses.

Do we know the Lord Jesus as our personal Saviour and the Lord of our New Lives?

Then like those first 500 witnesses, who saw Jesus risen from the dead everyday was Easter for them! Because they made up the foundation of what we today call Ekklesia or Church!

The death and resurrection of the Jewish Messiah made an impact on them, who did not fear or care what the world thought of them! After the empowering at Pentecost fifty days later, they went on to spread and share the Goods News message of the Gospel telling people that if they repented and turned to God their lives would be changed, just like ours?

John 21:17,  Acts 2:22,  4:12,  Romans 5:11, 15,  1 Corinthians 6:11,  2 Corinthians 4:10-11.

Mission. Part-Two.

Irelands Great Legacy.

From 500AD the Celtic Church expanded dramatically over the next one-hundred years after the death of Saint Patrick, reaching most of western Britain, Scandinavia and northern Germany? No one truly knows how far the Celtic Church progressed in the 450 years prior to the Norman invasion of the geographical British Isles?

One will always find fault with Christians in relation to temptation and sin, because people expect us to be perfect? Failure is seen as a smug comfort to the lost, but on the day of judgement there will be many regrets?

Today Ireland and the Celtic Church is still operating and sending out men and woman across the world to help those in need, much of this is not reported in the media because it is to occupied with senseless death?

Matthew 1:14,   Acts 14:7,   Romans 16:25,   1 Peter 4:17.

Conduct. One.

Not what we once Were!

When we have come to know Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, there has to be a change in our mental attitudes? We are no longer the person we were, but now are more centred on God and following our Lord!

The Apostle Paul speaks to the early Churches about the need to keep their conduct pure or clean in Christ, we must not look back and act the way we were? Sadly today there are many who encompass themselves in Church activity and in the process loose sight of Jesus and what is expected of us by Jesus?

Colossians 3:1-25,  Romans 12:1-2,  Hebrews 10:26-29,  32-38.

Believers and Christians. Two.

Stephen to Now!

Everyday believers in the death and resurrection of Jesus are being murdered, because they refuse to deny our Lord or recant of their trust in the Almighty, Eternal Father God!

Islam and many religions claim to know God, but their God is far away and requires war, conflict and blood of innocent people? This week we have seen more terror in Germany, in Iraq and in Syria with Christians being killed from a market to a Church!

We have one attribute over this enemy that is attacking us, and that is forgiviness which they do not have!

Luke 23:34,  Acts 7:60,  2 Corinthians 4:9,  Hebrews 10:33,  11:37.

The Harvest. Part-Two.

Human Souls.

Do you not know, that we are a commissioned people by Jesus to go out and harvest the souls God has chosen to be brought to Salvation?

It is our joy to share in the work of Jesus in gathering the sheaves over that of sitting in Church or other doing nothing, perhaps finding excuses within our callings to ignore the lost?

John 4:35,  Matthew 9:37-38,  Luke 10:2-3.

Ireland in Africa. Part-Three.

Africa in Ireland.

The black Church in the island of Ireland has been stunted, because of its desire to see a movement of Gods power. Catholocism is traditional, Protestantnism predominantly is racist in its evangelicalism.

If Patrick was with us today? He would be disgusted by the religious seperation and decline in morality and respect for Jesus claimed by many who have twisted everything to suite their own agendas.

Infact Ireland is no longer a Christian country, yet there are many believers who are struggling with the unbelivable responses from the state, the E.U. and Unionism who refuse to forgive and begrudge from historical prespective.

John 3:31-36,  1 Corinthians 15:8-10,  1 Timothy 1:15-16.
