Working on the front Line!

Not always the right place, even at the best of Times?

Someone has to run the country and thousands of people are still doing this from the military, police, power station workers, post to nurses and Doctors!

We cannot without these essential men and woman, one can add transport to that list and scientists who are trying to find a vaccine for this mysterious virus!

God is always in the picture of His own creation, despite its fallen state! Easter was about love being applied through Jesus and many will have now joined the numbers in the Ekklesia! Welcome!

As new believers we have trust God will get us through this and His resurrection power brings to us the eternal Hope of better day on this side and in Eternity!

Ruth 2:13,  1 Chronicles 29:15,   Job 5:16,  Psalm 43:5,   Acts 24:15,   2 Corinthians 1:7, Galatians 5:5.

God so Loved…! One.

EASTER is On?

Despite the terrible way the world is in at the moment, with the emphasis taken off Islamic battles and sectarian killings, humanity has poisoned itself once more in a pandemic disease situation!

But apart from the need to self-isolate and to keep the quarantine in place, we must thank God for technology and the Internet that is keeping us seeing each other over the thousands of miles?

Easter is on, because we can share, sing and praise God through various platforms such as Skype and You Tube! We can hear the word and share our lives with loved ones and make this Easter intimate and special and try to reflect of what was achieved for us by Jesus on the cross and His rising from the dead?

Nehemiah 1:11,  Psalm 55:1,   86:1,   Jeremiah 36:7,   Mark 11:24,  John 3:3,   7-9,   14-17,   Acts 4:12,   Romans 3:21-31,   James 5:16.

Happy New Year?

Hope.

We all want to start off this New Year with hope for many things, family, education, work, friends, parents? There is nothing wrong with having hope like that, even in business and in religious affaires?

But it is even better to have hope in God-Jesus to know where we are with Him in relation to Eternity and our Salvation! To be free from legalistic religion and ritualism based on traditions, which have nothing to do with the Bible?

1 Thessalonian 1:9-10,  Job 35:10-12,  Romans 8:24-25.

Finding comfort in the Bible. Part-Three.

Knowing God.

The world claims that it wants to find peace, this is the solution to all of humanities problems? But the more it claims peace, the more it does war? We often hear people in the Middle-East and Africa say, ”That they are a peace loving people, and tomorrow they chop off the heads of their prisoners in the name of God?

When we come to know God, through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, we have been set free from legalism and idolatry into a New Life relationship! And now that we are in this New place, we understand by the Power of the Holy Ghost/Spirit within us that we have a peace and a hope that the world can never have because of their open rebellion and rejection of God!

John 14:27,  Isaiah 9:6,  Romans 15:13,  1 Corinthians 13:13,  Philippians 4:7.

Trusting and relying on God. Part-Two.

Hope.

Christians are always getting knocked for believing in God, we have to take it because that is what we have been called to do. The world is full of criticism against God, why does he not do this or that.

People do not understand that our key to surviving is hope, not in things seen but in the Eternal promises of God to us.

Psalm 9:18,  16:9,  Proverbs  13:12,  Lamentations 3:26,  Philippians 1:20,  Titus 1:2,  Hebrews 11:1-2,  1 Peter 1:3.

Religion. Part-One.

Guidance and a Compass.

Most people today live in a state of going from A to B/Z hoping for the best, but they quickly end up being dissapointed in wht they are trying to do!

We so do need to have God in our lives, religion offers the security of keeping rules and regulations and it is fixed.

But faith in Jesus sets us free from these regulations and rules and gives us access to trust and hope for the better.

Ruth 1:12,  Job 4:6,  Psalm 38:15,  Romans 5:2,  Ephesians 2:12,  Hebrews 10:23.

Holocaust Denial. Part-Two.

‘Hiding behind Immigration.’

We must be informed and aware of the rise of the right-wing in Europe today, because of economic decline and issues covering free movement within the union of countries. Politicians have made a name and reputation for themselves in recent years of being habitual liars.  1 John 2:22,  4:3.

We have to learn from our own past historical events of persecution, occuapation and were we stood in 1939. The Holocuast and mass extermination of the Jews in Europe has been followed by Bosnis and Kosovo. Meanwhile Turkey carried out its own Genocide in 1900 against the Armenian Christians.  Exodus 23:8,   Psalm 26:9-10.

World history moves on and the sin of humanity, which is inherited will also continue. It is only our own call on Jesus and our own repentance that will save us, with the hope of a New life and attitudes to Eternity.  Matthew 12:21,  Luke 6:34,  2 Corinthians 1:7, Galatians 5:5,  Titus 2:13,   Hebrews 6:18-19.

Happy New Year.

‘Hope.’

We are now in the New year of 2014 and we are all hoping that this year will be better than the last one. We all want to see the best for ourselves and families, friends? We are hoping to see everything in a better light and to have less problems.

Maybe this year for some of us we will consider and come to accept Jesus as our personal Savior. In Him we will find a hope that will not fade like that of the world, which just comes and goes.

Psalm 9:18,  65:5,   Proverbs 11:23,   Matthew 12:21,   Romans 2:7,   Titus 1:2, Hebrews  6:18-19.

God is moving in Africa. Part-One.

100 years on.

When we look back one hundred years ago to the continent of Africa, we do not see much of God’s power at work. Yes many thousands of people were converting to ‘Christianity, but there was no out pouring of the Holy Spirit as in recent times.

It was said by many great Evangelical preachers in the UK and the U.S.A. ‘that many missionaries sent out to Africa, were doing nothing to reach the lost. But instead they were lounging around.

Today millions of people in Africa are coming to a personal knowledge and relationship of Jesus. Nations such as Uganda refuse to accept homosexuality as normal, while other nations are being attacked by western sanctions and Muslim extremism.

But the ‘Ekklesia of Jesus grows on. Amen. Psalm 69:32-33,  119:88.

Bru na Boinne, New Grange. Part-Two.

Many people throughout the island of Ireland in recent years have been drawn to various forms of Druidism, Wicca, New Age and Satanism/Witchcraft, because these older thoughts of religious experience are non Sectarian. After 40 years of conflict in N-Ireland, which did spill over the border (Monaghan and Dublin bomb attacks), people have sought refuge in paganism. but many have found that to be as divided as ‘Christianity’.

What real Christian belief is about, is a new life experience in Jesus the Son of God. It is about a change of heart, walking and living in a new way to obey and please God. It is a two way relationship. It is not based on traditions and ceremonies, but on faith and action daily. It is about seeing that we are all failures and that we need God to help us get through life, always trying our best to do what is good, true and right.

Ephesians 4:22-25, Romans 15:3-4, Titus 3:3-7,  Galatians 5:19-24.
