God is moving in Africa. Part-Three.

Black Wives.

When we talk start to talk about people in the bible we very quickly like to show our prejudice wrapped up or disguised in knowledge. We will say that God did not call children such as Samuel and Jeremiah to be Prophets. We also tend to disguise the facts that the Egyptian race was not black, but white.

God and the bible do not discriminate on races and colors. Both Joseph and Moses were married to black woman and King Solomon may have had a sexual relationship with the Queen of Sheba. Read the book of Solomon and you will quickly discover, she was a black woman. God is moving in Africa, because their cries for God’s mercy and help, after 400 years of slavery have been heard. Genesis 41:45-46.  Exodus 2:15-22,  Numbers 12:1.

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.

Mary. Part-Four.

In Luke 2:48-51 we learn of Jesus being left behind in Jerusalem and his parents returning to seek him. Today when a child goes missing is causes great distress and worry to the parents. They went up to Jerusalem so that Jesus could have his Bar-mitzvah, his time to enter adulthood had come. He was found in the Temple courts talking and discussing the scriptures with the teachers of the law (Torah). These are perhaps the latter secret followers, like Nicodemus (John 3:1-16), Joseph of Arimathea (Matthew 27:57-60) and Gamaliel (Acts 5:33-41) who were present that day.

But Mary had to go through a series of worries before the events of the cross.
