Arrogance?

Another year of banging the Drums!

Arrogance is a terrible sin and we can all be accused of practicing it, but when it becomes something of a historical excuse and a trap to change as it has with N-Ireland and Orangeism in light of the sad death of a young woman trying to make a career in journalism and political parties refusing to meet out of past bitterness we are in a serious situation!

This is a problem world-wide, but great opportunities are being missed to press on with the peace, now that Brexit has become more of a threat than it seems over the reestablishment of the border that no one wants, and London does not care about neither the U.S. President Trump who makes it up as he goes along?

‘Out of Control? Two.

Wickedness!

The freedom of choice has allowed humanity to choose its destiny and today the world is full of wickedness, turn on the Tv, media, computers, read the papers, even conversation in the club, bar and home evil, war, murder, killing, disasters are the prevalent news?

But this choice will lead to our ultimate destiny of disaster and being cut off from God for eternity!

People do not want to see these truths, they want for themselves and they want excuses to block off faith, religion in their lives! Many go through the practice of religion, because mummy and daddy did it, its a tradition and nothing more?

But some have faith, misguided or not there is still the opportunity to know the truth of Jesus death and resurrection and to find that personal relationship directly to our Father God without the need of Mary or another legalistic way!

Psalm 13:14,  112:4,   Amos 5:4,  John 3:3-36,  12:46,  16:33,  1 John 2:L13-14,  Revelation 7:14.

Refugees. One.

From Africa.

It is sad to say it, but the real victums of the many disasters on this continent are the poor people who have been left behind? The boat people off the coast of Libya are the rich, who can afford to get out, but they face much exploitation by those who traffick people.

Many countries in Europe today do not want these migrant refugees, because they know they are a drain on their resources and yet many are professionsal who will fill those undesirabable jobs?

Many Europeans had to leave between 1800 up to the present to go to both the United States of America and Canada, in effect invading another peoples land and exploiting them? But today too many excuses are to be found in refusing people from this, that and the other.

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.

Peace Processes. Part-Two.

All Hallows/Halloween.

Many today in N-Ireland have found common ground in the strained, but ongoing peace process. One festival that has been seen as a good place to share in is Halloween, this pagan festival can be shared by both Christian traditions. But their differences do remain for the rest of the year, because established traditions that their fear is stopping them from letting go.

This month has seen a rise of knife terrorism in Israel between the Palestinains and israelis, many innocent people have died on bothsides. Meanwhile the P.A. leadership have tried to justify themselves as the victums, this is nothing new under the sun we see it very much in relation to the Welsh towards the English who are seen as always persecuting them.

All of these cases are really related to human sin and how Adam made a list of excuses to God about it was eves fault he ate that apple. But why did he fall into the same trap as her, because he knew as much as she did?

Genesis 3:1-4,  Luke 14:28,  Romans 3:19.

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.

Green and Orange. Part-Two.

Sectarianism and Orders.

How easy it has been for various orders based on segregation to take control to keep peoples divided over religion as an excuse. We see this also in many other religions, but why is it so prominant in Christianity.

Many issues covering religious practise from the Communion to confession to the status of the Virgin Mary continue to excuse Protestants to be discrimintary to Catholics! But many Orangemen as Freemasons and that order allows the worship of idols and immoral practise.

John 3:31-36, Habakkuk 1:12.
