Vision with God! One.

Forgetting the Past?

Believers in Jesus must let go of the past, memories, bad company, families, history? It is a challenge to be a Christian without labels, it is hard to love those who hate and oppose us?

Many nations claim religion and set their tribes out for all to see, while they claim they know Jesus? But they are self-opinionated and self-right, their view is the only view thus they have become narrow minded?

We are asked by the Lord to follow His ways and forget what has gone before, but me more a people of vision looking forward to His return and all things New!

Philippians 3:13,  Matthew 11:28-30,  Luke 9:62,  Psalm 27:4,  Revelation 21:2.

Workers Rights?

1st May.

Exploitation continues, despite the abolition of black slavery? The end of colonial slavery was replaced by the Industrial revolution and the need for mass cheap labour! Many children were forced down the mines and into the mill machine cleaning, people were forced to live in back to back housing and vile conditions!

The 19th Century say the rise of Socialist idealism and the workers Utopia of rights and farer conditions, sometimes coming at great coast? Capitalism was the driving forces of big business, apart from some Christian efforts to appease their workers, there was little care for the workers and their families?

Today many people are working for little or nothing and this is not right, if we claim to know Jesus then we should show, care, concern and love for the less fortunate?

Genesis 31:7-8,   Luke 10:34,   John 4:36,   Romans 3:23,   6:23.

Christmas Preperations.

It’s that time of the year Again.

The lights, the tree, the cards and the rush to go mad from black friday to Christmas eve buying gifts for self, family and friends? Many of us run around like headless chickens this time of the year, excited for the holidays, without any consideration for the birth of the person we are celebrating?

Many people today don’t want anything to do with religion or Christianity and yet they will be the first to demand tradition? This has to be this way and that, because thats what they once had?

God apointed a time in human history for His son Jesus to enter to bring salvation and atonement to both His people Israel and redemption to the world! He has done this because He loves and he wants to see all people brought into fellowship with Him.

There is loves of many kinds, but His is unconditional, this does not mean that we can continue on in our sins? Because loving us does not mean He loves our failures!

Matthew 9:13,  Luke 2:14,  John 3:16.

Refugees. Two.

1845 to 2016.

Millions left Ireland, as they have many other lands to flee faminine and other economic disasters, but at the same time many have come to Ireland to find the hospitality of the Irish and feel let down?

We will always have refuugees of one kind or another, some will be dishonest while others true? This is the same for all humans, because of inherited sin, when we start to thinkl we are better than the rest then we have really misunderstood what God’s love, mery and forgiviness is all about?

Leviticus 25:35-38,  Psalm 37:25-26,  Proverbs 12:10,  Matthew 5;7,  Mark 11:25-26,  Luke 11:4,  John 5:42.

International Terrorism.

Religious Mania.

The British will mark Guy Fawkes night tomorrow with fire works and bonfires, but how many people know who and what Guy Fawkes the centre of this tradition was all about?

Today everyone in Europe has to be politically correct and yet there remains the stigma towards, black people, travellers and the Jews?

The world faces a new religious fanatical deluded enemy lead by some very clever people, who one day perhaps might deck the halls of the United Nations at the cost of many innocent woman and children killed by their suicide soldiers in markets, schools and many other soft targets.

God will never allow evil to overcome good, that is why he sent His son Jesus to us so that we by trusting in Him could be forgiven. loved and set free from the blindness and wickedness of this dark world!

Lamentations 2:14,  Ezekiel 22:28,  Matthew 7:15,  Romans 12:21,  Philippians 3:18.

Halloween. Two.

Authority over the Enemy.

All Hallows is the traditional time to point out that God has more power over the darkness, demonic, evil and wickedness in this world! It is also a time of dressing up and having fun with our children?

For believers we are reminded of the struggles that we face everyday and we see and know that God through the Holy Spirit has given us the authority to rebuke the Devil, knowing that he will flee from us.

Gods love for this world can only truly be found in His one and only son Jesus, who went of His own choice to the cross to die for our failures! His resurrection from the grave made the victory of taking away the sting of death! The world fears many things, but there is no fear in Love, in Jesus love.

Job 5:15,  Psalm 10:3-4,  Isaiah 41:10,  1 Corinthians 13:4-8,  Galatians 5:14,  James 4:7, 1 Peter 3:14,  Revelation 2:10.

History of Conflicts. Two.

My Religion, My Ways, I, Me My-Self.

The Apostle Paul told us in his letters to the first Christians in the New Testament that he had met many false believers. They seemed to believe, but it was there actions and reactions that revealed their real intentions.

From excluding certain believers out of fellowship, to commiting adultry at the Communion/Lord’s table to being mentioned in the Book of Revelation as the Nicolations.

It is very hard to be a believer wither one is a Catholic or a Protestant, because denominational membership means nothing to God knowing our hearts. Faith may be measured in this world by filling in a card for either Confirmation or Baptism, but only God knows our Hearts.

1 Corinthians 3:4-7,  Colossians 2:18,  1 Timothy 1:20,  2 Peter 2;1,  Revelation 2:6,  15.
