Faith always wins Through!

Over Traditionalism?

We hear much about the Christian religion in the media, but we don’t get to hear of the good things that are happening around the world and all over the place?

New things, God moving changing lives, wars ending, people talking, trying to make peace, new schools, hospitals, pumps for water in deserts and much more!

What God really wants is for His believers to keep living by faith and not caught up in the deadness of ritualism and traditions!

Psalm 36:3,   Acts 10:38,   Ephesians 6:7,   1 Peter 2:15,   20,   3:6.

Fruit and Fire!

Only for Born-Again Believers?

When we are saved, knowing that God has forgiven our past sins, because we believed that Jesus died on the cross and rose again on the third day making that one and final atonement for sins, we will have received the Holy Spirit as both a guarantee and seal of our Salvation!

The Holy Spirit is that flame or fire of passion that burns within us, wanting to share the Good News message with the world around us, friends and family! He gives us a passion and compassion for others, while also the gifts become available for us to develop in Love!

But last of all we are given the free choices to go with God’s flow or to refuse to do so and so we must face the consequences of these choices at the End of the Age?

Songs of Solomon 8:7,   Joel 2:28-32,   Acts 2:3,   1 Corinthians chapters 12,  13,  14,  Galatians 5:22,   1 Thessalonians 5:19,   1 Peter 1:7.

Being lifted Up. One.

Encouraged to Persevere?

One can not say that to have faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus will make us friends of the world? We may be called to serve in the world, but we must never think that Gods ways will be tolerated by the lost!

Everyday Christians are under strains from the daily pressures of life and this can be the same wither we are married, single of celibate. At times it can become unbearable, that we give in and compromise, but thank God we can repent and ask for Jesus forgiveness and get back on track once more!

As believers we have a Spiritual armoury, not of weapons that world uses to kill each other, but to counter all those arguments, questions, jeering and rejection that the world throws at us in their attempt to undermine the power of God!

2 Corinthians 10:4-7,   Job 5:11,   Psalm 138:6,   Romans 12:2,   Philippians 2:1.

Religious Freedom. Part-Two.

Christians under Attack!

Apart from us being easy targets are the Jewish religion and the main proponent to attack both of us is Islam, but after that is Atheism, Hindus and Buddhism!

Why, what are they afraid of? Because Christianity has to truth and offer’s all who hear and accept freedom from both religious and government controls!

Jews are hated even by Christians, but without them we would not have our Salvation! Muslims want to eradicate Israel, because they know and fear the return of Jesus who will reign from Jerusalem?

Other religions or non fear also Jesus return, because it will mean an end to their so called belief’s and systems that are nothing more than a pack of lies!

Isaiah 7:14,  Matthew 1:23,  24:18,  Mark 13:16,  Luke 1:27,  Romans 11:8-11,  Revelation 17:14,  19:16.

Religious Freedom. Part-One.

Christianity and Other?

There is a world history of Christianity clashing with other religions, because of our freedoms and their enforced legalism and idolatry? Many lands in Africa clash with Islam, but also with the many primitive religions and beliefs too some of which are nothing more than folklore?

Believers can get killed for their faith, for their failure to respect a certain prophet or a certain custom! Others do not like to see freedom from ritualism, from personality worship and from community control?

Isaiah 58:16,   Matthew 6:14,   John 8:32-33,   36,   Acts 13:46,   14:3,   22:28.

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.

Belivers and Christians. One.

In the Middle-East and North-Africa.

One noticed this past week the murder of Christians in Egypt by unknown Islamic terrorists and the failure to report these events in many Catholic European countries?

It was sad to see that the historical disunity continues over demoniational politics, between the Roman Church and the earlier Christian communites was still in bitter effect of minor doctrines?

No one really knows the heart of another and this is the same with believers, many of us will be suprised in Heaven to see who made it and did not? This is supposed to be the season of, ‘Peace and Good will than let us put our faith into deeds of kindness and mercy and throuugh it entertain Jesus Himself?

Matthew 22:14,   25:36-44,  Luke 2:15-20,  James 2:18-22.
