Mission. Part-One.

Past and Present.

We tend to think that this is not for our place, but going off to another land to share the ‘Christian Faith?’ After the events mentioned in Acts chapter two the Good News message of Jesus spread out then to the known Greek, Persian and Roman world, which in itself was quite big.

Many of those early believers paid with their lives within the Roman Empire for at least 300-years, being fed to the lions! But this message of Jesus death for the forgiveness of sins and His resurrection from the dead did not die away but continued to grow!

Africa and Britain saw the first believers arriving from 34AD to the influx by 126AD, but it is not known when the first buildings were erected for meetings came about?

Matthew 28:19-20,  Mark 16:15-16,  Luke 24:47-48,  Acts 1:8,  Romans 10:18,  Colossians 1:23.

‘Nailed for Us. Part-Three.

He died for you and Me.

‘Christians can make a lot of fuss over doctrines about Jesus dying on the Cross and the Communion table, but the bible is very clear and so is the Greek. So their are no excuses to say somthing different.

Today is ‘Good Friday, when Jesus paid the penalty for our sin, failures. This day of shedding His blood is a one off event for the redemption/purshase of our souls back from Satan to God.

The blood was not spilt for legalists or traditionalists, but for all who would have faith in believing Jesus death and resurrection. This not the end of the story, but the beginning, because Jesus ascended with the promise to return for us at the end of the age.

Job 33:24,  Psalm 109:3,  Romans 8:34,  Hebrews 10:10-14.

Myth’s and Fables. Part-One.

In all cultures and societies throughout human history man has had Myths and Fables passed down, with Legends from generation to generation and we know that these stories are partially lies. Because they have been added to over time to make them a bit more juicy.

The origin of the word Myth comes from the Greek Muthos and it has two meanings. One to teach and instruct and two, a secret.

We do like to hear a good story, even within gossip. But if that story is true, we probably ignore it or forget it. But if it has been spiced up a bit, we are sure to remember it?

People are like that with religion, they think I’m okay and so they build ideas and doctrines of their own around these beliefs. Meanwhile they ignore and excuse all the challenges of God’s commandments. Romans 1: 20-25, 2 Peter 1:16.
