Halloween. One.

A night for the Devil?

Based on north-European paganism, Halloween/All Hallows has become a time in the Christian calendar to remember that we believers have a daily adversary  who is out to get us at every cost, to take from us our assurance of trust in Jesus.

Satan, the Devil and His demonic host are as real, we see their handy work in the world everyday, terrorism, corruption, starvation, child abuse, intimidation, violence, gangs, criminal activity, murder, drugs and alcohol abuse?

But with Jesus we have the authority to rebuke the enemies attacks on us and he will flee, if we refuse to give into temptations!

Genesis 3:1-5,   Job 1:7-8,   Matthew 4:1-11,   2 Corinthians 11:14,   James 4:7.

Bel Today. Part-Two.

Unravelling.

Is it not strange how after over 10 years of peace in Northern-Ireland a political party pulls out accusing the other side of not being honest, while its own leader is now accused of financial criminallity?

It would seen that one side wants to find any excuse to end the process by any means, but God has overruled on the hypocrasy of the other.

This is happening daily across the globe in relation to secret societies and the revelation that people in power have hidden behind financial idolatry, while presenting a honest and respectable face.

Psalm 58:1-2,  94:20-21,  Matthew 23:27,  Luke 11:44,  Acts 23:3.

Girolamo Savonarola. Part-Three.

Savonarola the Florence reformer  (1452-1498) lost support and was ex-communicated from the Church, after he was arrested, put on trial and executed in 1498. Rome was swift in how they dealt with him. Within and few days he was both tortured to confess that he was wrong and a heretic.

It is strange that the Pope did not act with the love of Christ in forgiving him, but instead had him killed. It from the roots and persecution of men like Wycliffe, Huss and Savonarola that the foundations of the European Lutheran Reformation were laid.

Girolamo was a real Christian, who had tried to fight corruption with in the Papacy. It was said ‘that he re-counted his claims, but this is probably not true.

Matthew 10:28, Luke 21:8, 1 John 2:22, 1 John 4:3.

Girolamo Savonarola. Part-One.

Not many people have heard of this man, Girolamo Savonarola (Italy) he could be described as the third reformer in the age of Jan Huss (Bohemia) and John Wycliffe (England).

All three men remained Roman Catholic in their doctrine, but were expelled from the Roman Catholic Church, because they had called for serious reform.

This Italian Dominican monk in the city of Florence tried in vain to challenge the corrupt state of the pontificate reign of Pope Alexander-VI (4th).

Proverbs 21:6-8, Ecclesiastes 2:1-2.
