Crossroads. Two.

Living in the power of the Resurrection?

There are some people who believe or claim a faith in Jesus, but they fail to fathom the rising of Jesus the man from the grave?

This a serious flaw in the Christian faith, like that of denying that a loving God would send people to Hell! But without faith in the resurrection of Jesus, we cannot enter into the promised New Life!

All who witnessed Jesus rising from the dead where changed people, their faith was made full and they were empowered to press on believing, applying Jesus teaching and serving God!

John 11:24-24,  Acts 1:22,  4:33,  Romans 1:4,  6:5,  1 Corinthians 15:12-13,  Colossians 1:13, 1 Peter 1:23.

NO GOD?

Foolishness.

Many people today trust in things, sex, material goods, property, land, pets, but they claim no faith or beliefe in God?

There are many who claim to know God, they do good deeds and works, they are pious and religious and they try to be good living.

There is a God, who we remember every Christmas and Easter, that sent His one and only son to bring us back by His sacrifice for our failure into relationship with the Father.

Proverbs 1:7,  22,  Amos 5:4,  Matthew 3:2,  Mark 9:31,  Luke 13:32,  Acts 4;12,  2 Corinthians 6:2.

Walking with the Holy Spirit. Part-One.

Living and Walking.

When we were once part of the world, we lived as the world did. We did not know or recognise God, as we do now.

So now that we do know God, as our Father and Jesus as our friend and Saviour we do not need to continue on as we once did.

We tend to forget that we too can walk with the Holy Spirit, who is the third person of the Trinity.

Romans 8:4-5,  Galations 5:15-16,  1 Peter 1:22,   Jude 1:19-21.

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.

Enoch.

The day of judgement is coming and all of humanity will be convicted of their greed, evil, exploitation. but on that day there will be no chance to repent of the wrong committed. Genesis 5:18-24, Jude 14-15.

Enoch was an ordinary man who lived by faith, he walked with God and despite having a family and all the problems that life brings, he was able to maintain fellowship with God. God was so pleased with him, that he suddenly took him, translated (taken-up). Enoch disappeared one day, there were no fanfares, celebrations, parties, he just was taken.

Leviticus 26:3, Psalm 1:1, 15:2-3, 16:11, Proverbs 10:9, 21:9.

The time for Salvation is now, today, in repentance, changed attitudes.

But there must remain conditions to continuing with the Lord Jesus. Romans 6:4, 2 Corinthians 4:2, 5:7.
