Remembrance Sunday.

The World and the Church.

Many people will gather to rember their fallen this weekend from the British and Commonwealth armed forces from the great war (1914-18) to the present conflicts. These gatherings can have so many meanings for so many people from victory over an enemy to occupation and oppression.

For the believer every Sunday is a remembrance day of what Jesus has done for us! We press on in everyday battles, with our enemy the Devil who does not rest from attacking the Saints.

Romans 5:17,  Galatians 3:14,  Ephesians 2:7,  Philippians 3:14,.

Remembrance Sunday. Part-Two.

Remembrance Sunday not just for Britain.

Many thousands of Commonwealth and allied troops and resistors died fighting in a coalition against Nazi-Germany and Imperial Japan. Jesus tells us that war is an inevitable fact of human history and his followers should not worry. Mark 13:7.

Humanity is stained by Sin and the heart is selfish, nations do go to war, so do people who row and argue end up in fights, which sometimes leads to murder. Romans 3:23, 6:23.

Jesus warns us in Mark 13 that the Judgment Day of the Father will come at the end and we need to know where we will be standing on that day?
John 3:16-21, Acts 4:12.
