‘Happy New Year 2018.

Peace and Joy!

This is the traditional message of Christmas, that today seems lost in the rush of buying for everyone, but many of our cards even secular ones will still have a greeting similar to this?

Real peace and joy comes only when we know the Lord Jesus as our personal Saviour, other wise it is nothing more than feelings that are very much fleeting?

Christmas and Easter are about Jesus birth and death, he cam as the babe human the Saviour of the world and the King of Israel and He died for the sins of His people Israel and also for the Gentiles to make reconciliation between two races and between fallen humanity and God!

Genesis 28:21,  Psalm 16:4,  37:37,  Matthew 28:21,  John 14:27,  Romans 15:13,  Hebrews 12:2.

Reconciliation. One.

Forgive and Forget.

Bitterness is a terrible condition to be in, when one is claiming to have a faith in God? Like racism and sectarianism, they block the power of the Holy Spirit working in our lives! Jesus was rejected first by His own people, but He has not given up on humans with all our flaws?

Jesus went to the cross/stake/tree for our sins, making that final atonement and rising from the dead so that we may have a New Life and overcome the sting of natural death!

Calvinism in some respects justifies sins, while in others it gives a belief that once saved will get us into heaven? But the bible is more complex and we need to understand it from the context that it was written in?

Luke 23:34,   Romans 5:10,   Matthew 5:23-26,   Colossians 1:20-22,   Hebrews 2:17.

‘A time to Reflect.

This where we go wrong with any kind of Rememberance, we forget to reflect on the day. Reflectio is a great thing to do for anthing, because it allows us to see our mistakes and learn not to do them again?

Many armies do not reflect, because they do not want to destroy or reveal their failures. In all wars soldiers of any conflict are left scarred mentaly, without help. We hear and see what seems to be help, but this is usually for certain ranks.

War also leaves victums and many accusations, so it is better to talk afterwards to try an resolve things. Meanwhile the bible has much to say on the matter of remembering, so let us reflect on His words to help us push on.

Job 4:3,  14:13,   Psalm 25:7,   37:25,    Matthew 19:27,   Mark 14:9,   Luke 17:32,   John 15:28,  Hebrews 10:17.

The road to Emmaus. Part-Two.

From Moses.

Jesus is walking with them along the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus and He starts to explain to them, starting with Moses all the events of who the Messiah was and what the scriptures (Tanakh/Old Testament) had to say about Him. Luke 24:25-27.

This shows us how we so easily can forget what we claim to know about God and also misinterpret the signs that are right in front of us.

They listened intently to this stranger unaware of who he was. As evening came he was about to leave them, but they invited him to stay with them. Mark 16:12-16.
