Ireland in Africa. Part-One.

The witness of St. Patrick.

Many men and woman have and continue to serve for jesus in Africa and they continue to have a great influence in Christian matters. Saint Patrick has more of an influence today in the African continent that he ever had in bother Ireland and the British isles.

Patrick kept his faith in Jesus simple, but he always pointed to the cross and the need of a new birth and relationship with Jesus. His emphasis was not on good works, or the keeping of religious observance but of faith in action.

We hear daily of the terrible atrocious crimes and murders comitted against Christians and poor people in the name of God. Many nuns have been raped and murdered and yet despite all this wickedness the gospel of Jesus continues to spread and grow.

Acts 4:1,  8:1,   Romans 8:35,  2 Corinthians 5:19,   Philippians 1:18,  2 Timothy 4:5,   Revelation 7:14.

Jesus First. Part-Four.

Two miracles of the Virgin Birth.

The mind of the world is depraved and one usually when bringing up this subject, will hear all the filth that humanity makes in accusations and talk that it never was.

Yet we as believers must believe in all the miracles and wonders of God, not just the bits that might fit our doctrines or what denomination or branch of Christianity that we belong to. The Ekklesia of Jesus is universal, we are but bricks or blocks being built or formed into a Spiritual building.

Jesus was concieved into His earthly morther Mary by the Holy Spirit. One perhaps could say it was a kind of Spiritual IVF? The second miracle was that Mary did not break he waters, as pregnant woman do in birthing. This proves that Mary was a virgin and that is all it proves. She is not devine or sinless, she is not our intrcession to God.

The Scriptures are very clear in relation to Jesus is the centre, the pivot and the focus of our faith in Him. His death was the final atonement required by the Law for human sin.

Luke 1:26-38, 2:5-7,  Hebrews chapter 10.
