‘I Have a Dream!

Martin Luther King and Bloody Sunday?

It is ironic that the words of this North-American civil rights preacher would lead to the rights of Catholics in Ireland and the eventual tragedy of ‘Bloody Sunday?

Martin Luther Kings words still and will continue to have impact around the world until the Lords return, for every oppressed peoples and cultures! Crossing racial, colour and cultural backgrounds and inspiring much needed freedom in this world!

Much can be said about his failings, well the Holy Bible tells us that we are all sinners! So stop pointing fingers in your self proclaimed righteousness and try Jesus today, while also seeking to help all who are oppressed in society and culture!

Joel 2:28,   Acts 2:17,   Leviticus 6:2,   Judges 4:3,   Psalm 9:9,   72:13,  103:13,   Matthew 18:27,   Luke 4:18,   Acts 10:38,  Hebrews 11:37.

Families! One.

Natural and Spiritual?

There are two kinds of families, natural ones that we all come from or belong to and Spiritual ones that we have entered through repentance, confession and being Born-Again by the Holy-Spirit!

In the natural order we belong to parents, or we have been adopted and other cases orphans with many issues to carry through our lives? Families are full of rows and also strife, mixed in with the good times too?

But the Spiritual family is different, in that we belong to Ekklesia, the family of God that is universal! It should have no borders and we should all be helping each other? But the reality is far from this truth, believers are divided by false teachings and a lack of reading the Bible?

Acts 2:42-47,  1 Corinthians 3:4-7,   2 Peter 2:9.

 

Mission. Part-Two.

Irelands Great Legacy.

From 500AD the Celtic Church expanded dramatically over the next one-hundred years after the death of Saint Patrick, reaching most of western Britain, Scandinavia and northern Germany? No one truly knows how far the Celtic Church progressed in the 450 years prior to the Norman invasion of the geographical British Isles?

One will always find fault with Christians in relation to temptation and sin, because people expect us to be perfect? Failure is seen as a smug comfort to the lost, but on the day of judgement there will be many regrets?

Today Ireland and the Celtic Church is still operating and sending out men and woman across the world to help those in need, much of this is not reported in the media because it is to occupied with senseless death?

Matthew 1:14,   Acts 14:7,   Romans 16:25,   1 Peter 4:17.

Finding comfort in the Bible. One.

The Psalms.

For centuries now believers have turned to the book of the Psalms in their times of need to find solace and comfort? Many ask where should I look, there are many relevant psalms such as 23 and 91.

But there is also Psalm 119, which in connection with Psalm one could be a devotional in its own right! When life gets rough and people wear us down Psalm 37 can for some be very handy.

When deppresed or under the weather Psalm 40 may also help us? In fact spending the first 31 days reading those respective Psalms gives a good taste of what is to come?

Paraclete.

The Holy Ghost/Spirit.

Only for belivers and not the world, Jesus promised his disciples would recieve power from on high to help them to preach the gospel message. From the day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit has been poured out on all believers.

We need Him to help us when we are weak and afraid to serve, to share, to give testimony. He intercedes for us in these times of troubles, when we do not know what to say.

John 11:25, 1 4:26,  Acts 2:33,  2 Corinthians 12:10,  Ephesians 6:18,  Hebrews 7:25.

‘Desparadoe’s Part-One.

Despairing.

From time to time many of us will find that we are in some really bad situation for one reason or another and we will start to fall into despair, i am hear more addressing Christian believers who run around like headless chickens!

When we have our bibles right in front of us to read and pray and find comfort, the best book ever written. A world seller, which will never be beaten on help, encouragement and guidance.

Job 17:11-15,  Psalm 39:6-7, Ecclesiates 2:20.

God’s Protection. Part-Two.

David.

When we come to look at the life of King David we see that he was a man on the run from a disturbed paranoid man. David constantly cried out to God for help, like many of us.

It is hard to be a believer in God and to follow the teachings of Jesus, its not just about loving people but rather forgiving them for what they are doing to us.

But to put this into practice we know like David that we have God’s protection daily.

Psalm 140:1,  4,  11,  Matthew 6:13.
