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?

Vision with God! One.

Forgetting the Past?

Believers in Jesus must let go of the past, memories, bad company, families, history? It is a challenge to be a Christian without labels, it is hard to love those who hate and oppose us?

Many nations claim religion and set their tribes out for all to see, while they claim they know Jesus? But they are self-opinionated and self-right, their view is the only view thus they have become narrow minded?

We are asked by the Lord to follow His ways and forget what has gone before, but me more a people of vision looking forward to His return and all things New!

Philippians 3:13,  Matthew 11:28-30,  Luke 9:62,  Psalm 27:4,  Revelation 21:2.

LOVE. 1.

Love is Kind!

The New Testament of the Holy bible tells us that Love is kind, it is not selfish and it always seeks the best! This is the attribute that Jesus asks of us who believe and follow Him?

The worlds idea of love is from a selfish motive, even when it appears to be good? Its all about I will give, but I want something in return for my efforts?

God’s love to the world, through Jesus is not demanding, but rather unconditional!

Deuteronomy 11:22,  John 3:14-18,  31-36,   1 Corinthians 13:4,  Galatians 5:22.

History of Conflicts. One.

Wars, Terrorism, Gangterism.

Africa, Europe and Ireland have all seen their fare share of these problems over the last two hundred years. Some will blame Imperialism, occupation, while others say it was a few trouble makers that started these problems?

Some will blame it on religious difference, sectarianism and criminal activity and all of these may have a semblence of truth in their own right?

The problems start when we refuse to let go, over time and put our faith we claim to have into practice. One may say I am religious, another I do good deeds, I’m Born-again or Evangelical?

But if we do not do what Jesus commands us to do, to love, to forgive, to be friendly, hospitable? Then what kind of faith do we have that is so cold to keep refusing, to reject, to hurt and hate.

Well its not the Chrtianity of the Holy Bible!

Psalm 94:1,  119:169,  Matthew 5:22,  Luke 23:34,  Romans 12:19.

Which First? Part-Three.

Your Choice.

Even as believers we sometimes find ourselves slipping back into our old ways, but this should not be. We really have to make a crucial choice are we going to the ways of the world or are we going to continue to follow Jesus.

This is for each one of us to choose, salvation or damnation. There is no where in the bible the doctrine of once saved always saved, some clever people have twisted the scriptures to suit their own failur and try to justify sin.

God Does not.

Matthew 6:24,  Luke 16:13,  Revelation 3:15.
