Easter Everyday?

500 Witnesses.

Do we know the Lord Jesus as our personal Saviour and the Lord of our New Lives?

Then like those first 500 witnesses, who saw Jesus risen from the dead everyday was Easter for them! Because they made up the foundation of what we today call Ekklesia or Church!

The death and resurrection of the Jewish Messiah made an impact on them, who did not fear or care what the world thought of them! After the empowering at Pentecost fifty days later, they went on to spread and share the Goods News message of the Gospel telling people that if they repented and turned to God their lives would be changed, just like ours?

John 21:17,  Acts 2:22,  4:12,  Romans 5:11, 15,  1 Corinthians 6:11,  2 Corinthians 4:10-11.

Holocuast unbelievers. Part-Three.

Black people.

There is sadly as many people today in Europe and N-America who think that black people are not fully human, many of their ideas stem from 19th Century Eugenics. There are various terms used to cover these root factors such as racism and intitutionalism, but the truth is much bare.

Black people have had it hard in white society for the last 600 years, but Jewish people have suffered under black people and other nations for the last 4000 years. The problem is really the sinfulness of the human heart in relation to jealousy and pride and if we say we have faith in God we need to be rid of these ideas.

Exodus 6:6-8,    Judges 12:6,    1 John 1:7-10.

Xmass. Part-Four.

Wanting to Praise.

Jesus birth was not a limited event, it was not by special membership or you had to get your ticket. Jesus was born in a stable full of animals and He was laid in a animal feeder.

The first to see Him where those nosey gossiping shepherds, then He was taken to the Temple on the eight day to be circumcised, because He was Jewish. One year later the wisemen or Magi from Persia arrived to see this special child, a little one year-old boy.

What did they all have in common, they were glad to see His coming and they worshipped and praised Him.

Matthew 1-2, Luke 1-2.

Xmass. Part-Two.

The Middle-East and Israel.

The 25th of December annually marks the birth date of the Jewish Messiah, while the Bible continues to portray historical events from a vey eastern flavour. The Christian Churches have taken over the las 1700 years a very anrti-semitic line and this continues today in relation to the establishment of the modern state of Israel.

For all of us who read our bibles daily an have a faith in the works of Yeshua Adonai, must relise and understand that Israel is restored under the will of God. From Crib to Stake/tree, from the resurrection to ascension to promised return.

Matthew/Levi 1, Luke 2.

‘Christmas is coming. Part-Two.

Keeping Centred.

The centre of the Christmas story is Jesus, the perfect man born into human flesh. Born to a young virgin woman, who was in her year of betrothal to her husband. This is the way Jewish people still get married to their religious tradition. No sex before marriage.

Many people find it hard to accept the bible and the power of God manifest, but God allowed the Holy Spirit to overshadow Mary and in that miricale, the egg in her womb was fertilized and she concieved a perfect baby.  Luke 1:30-38, 35.

Mary was not the first woman in the bible to have a child, that came by the power of God. Sarah the wife of Abraham had Isaach in her old age. She was well beyond the age of human possible conception, then there was Hannah who beared Samuel from a desperate prayer to God.  Genesis 17:19, 21:1-3, 6-9,  1 Samuel 1:11,  17.

Today the world relies on science to prove God is wrong or we can do better than Him, we have Abortion and artificial insemination. A sort of give and take to suite our wants, but ultimately God is very much in control.

Easter. Part-One.

The Last Supper.

Jesus met with his disciples in the upper room to celebrate the Jewish Passover (Pesach), to remember God’s deliverance of His people from Egyptian slavery. Exodus Chapters 12-15.

It was at the table that Jesus revealed who was going to betray him, Judas Iscariot, but he also warned Peter that he would deny him and all of them would desert him soon. Matthew 26:14-30, Mark 14:10-31,  Luke22:3-34, John 13:21-30, 36-38.

We may like to boast in what we have, who we are and what we can do, but to be a real believer in Jesus will cost you. We are expected to take up our cross daily and follow. We are also asked to share in His struggles too. Are you up to it?  Luke 9:23-25. Romans 6:16.

Christmas. Part-Four.

Jesus the Jewish Messiah and the Saviour of the world is now born. Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 2:6-7.

He was not a helpless babe, his mother the Virgin” went on to have other children with her husband Joseph. Jesus was circumcised eight days after His birth in that stable. Luke 2:21-24. He had to fulfill the conditions of Jewish Law, since he was their promised Messiah.

Many people say ‘why do the Jews, not believe? Some do believe, but meanwhile some Catholic’s rely on infant baptism, conformation and the traditions of the Church, and they continue on in pagan revelry. We need all to come to a personal relationship with Jesus and turn away form Sin. Acts 4:12, John 3:15-21. Romans 3:23, 6:23, 1 John 1:5-10.
