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.

Terrorism. Part-Two.

‘Dark Forces.

People who are angry and not heard as we saw recently in Norway are right across Europe and the world. As Christians in politics we do so need to encourage everyone with their grievences to be heard and not ignored.

Sometimes what we will hear we disgust us, but hear it will help to heal any wounds that left festering as we should know will lead to a conflict. Jesus was not political, but when shown a coin, said ‘Give to Ceaser what is his and then give to God.

We need to learn to respect those in authority both in the government and in the ekklesia.

Mark 12:14-17,  Romans 13:1-7,  Titus 3:1, 1 Peter 2:13-17.

God is moving in Africa. Part-One.

100 years on.

When we look back one hundred years ago to the continent of Africa, we do not see much of God’s power at work. Yes many thousands of people were converting to ‘Christianity, but there was no out pouring of the Holy Spirit as in recent times.

It was said by many great Evangelical preachers in the UK and the U.S.A. ‘that many missionaries sent out to Africa, were doing nothing to reach the lost. But instead they were lounging around.

Today millions of people in Africa are coming to a personal knowledge and relationship of Jesus. Nations such as Uganda refuse to accept homosexuality as normal, while other nations are being attacked by western sanctions and Muslim extremism.

But the ‘Ekklesia of Jesus grows on. Amen. Psalm 69:32-33,  119:88.
