Reconciliation. Part-Two.

Back to God.

Jesus death and resurrection is the divine reconciliation between humanity God, this is achieved by placing our faith in the Good Works of Jesus and not based on our own deeds!

It is Jesus who has taken the worlds sin upon His own body, He is the one who is Eternally marred for us. If we choose to turn from our failure and admit, God will forgive us! But we must not return again to what we were, but we must move on in personal relationship with Him.

In so doing we are reconciled back to God again and in Him will find daily strength to push on with the problems of life.

Ephesians 2:16,   Colossians 1:22,  2 Timothy 4:18.

Crises. Part-Two.

Seeking Peace.

There remains to this day many people around the world, near and far who are not content with peace. They want to stir up old wounds for their own prestige, they dress it up as being righteous, seeking justice or we want.

Some times they will get a bit of what they want or want to achieve, so that people will praise them up. Strife is always a costly affair, because violence breeds more with hatred and factionism.

This is not Gods way, He wants peace and people to give up things for it to be achieved. Some ‘Christians are great players on theology and politics to suit their own selfish agendas. But it is only God who knows what truth is in our hearts.

1 Corinthians 14:33,  Hebrews 4:12,  James 3:16.

Terrorism. Part-One.

‘War without Rules?

Ireland has had a history of armed conflict, since it was first invaded and occupied by the English and their Welsh mercenaries. Over those 800 years, it has seen many wars with Britain, ending in the 40 years of the troubles in N-Ireland.

But we must not think that there is a new terror now in Europe, that plays by its own rules. Evil people want to push their agenda, not for the liberation of one but many at the same time. In 1605 Guy Fawkes had the same idea, instead of using democratic means within his reach. He instead chose violence, that would of lead to the mass murder of many innocent people going about their daily business.

Fear and intimidation are the causes of many conflicts around the world in human history, when a certain group of people feel they have to right to tell others what to do. You have to do it our way and we will always be over you. ”Familiar Echos.”

Nehemiah 2:10, 18,  4:7-8, 9-15, Psalm 23:3,  27:1, 56:5-6,  Matthew 10:26, 28, 31.

Blinkers. Part-One.

A Limited Vision.

This post is not about horse racing, which I am sure will be a disappointment  to some? No this is about ‘Christian Revival in Ireland, which many ‘Christians do not believe has occurred since 1859.

This is because they have allowed themselves to become blinkered to the movement of God around them. There where Revivals in Ireland in 1928 and 1994, but very few established Christians saw this and reacted to it.

The reasons for this lack of belief, sadly is the bigotry that plagues Ireland as a nation and peoples. Sectarianism, seclusion and hatred has stopped the power of God. This does not mean that people are not getting saved, it is just not recognized as a move of the Holy Spirit.  Act 1:8, 1 Corinthians 3:16, Jude 19.
