PRIDE!

Nationalism, politics and Sexuality?

We have to write from the context of the Bible in relation to this matter of human failure and a misunderstanding of what Pride is and what it means is not good!

God has no time for pride or the proud, because it is a self-imposed block to faith! We see it at work everyday in our world, people stubborn, disobedient and restless to oppose God and man in not giving up their traditions, marching and walking forcing their religious beliefs on others with threats of death?

Trying to prove to others that they have to accept their new ways or their political views of segregation and many other twisted ideals!

But God has offered to us in love His one and only Son Jesus, all who repent and place their faith in Him will be saved from the twisted ideals of humanity and their past failures!

Leviticus 26:19,   Job 35:12,   Proverbs 8:13,   13:10,   Mark 7:22,   Romans 12:9,   1 Corinthians 13:4,   2 Corinthians 5:14,   Hebrews 13:5,   James 1:12,  1 John 1:3.

Love and Forgiveness!

A lack of Today?

Next week millions will be spent on enjoying love, wither in marriage or outside it?

Marriage will breakdown, because of selfishness and the lack of the ability to forgive! Those vows of promises earlier will be lost in the failure to recognise it takes work to put things right!

God will not change, He does not want those who believe in Him to be lacking in anything, especially forgiving and loving others!

Isaiah 59:15,   John 3:16,   1 Corinthians 13:13,   Hebrews 13:14,   James 1:4,   Revelation 3:19.

Families! Two.

Sense of Belonging?

The world is a hard place, especially when families go all wrong and love is conditional?

Many people today claim that they were not loved by their parents and yet forty to fifty years ago, working conditions and time off for child care was both hard and not available?

Loneliness is another factor in our society, even for married couples when they get older?

What is the remedy to these situations, faith in God and knowing the Lord allows us un-limited access into the Church! But still many Christians to have the same problems as the world, but this should not be?

Genesis 22:8,    John 1:29,   Mark 15:41,   1 Timothy 3:5,   5:3,   Jude 1:12.

Fruit and Fire!

Only for Born-Again Believers?

When we are saved, knowing that God has forgiven our past sins, because we believed that Jesus died on the cross and rose again on the third day making that one and final atonement for sins, we will have received the Holy Spirit as both a guarantee and seal of our Salvation!

The Holy Spirit is that flame or fire of passion that burns within us, wanting to share the Good News message with the world around us, friends and family! He gives us a passion and compassion for others, while also the gifts become available for us to develop in Love!

But last of all we are given the free choices to go with God’s flow or to refuse to do so and so we must face the consequences of these choices at the End of the Age?

Songs of Solomon 8:7,   Joel 2:28-32,   Acts 2:3,   1 Corinthians chapters 12,  13,  14,  Galatians 5:22,   1 Thessalonians 5:19,   1 Peter 1:7.

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.

Secular Humanism. Part-Two.

European and Western Concept?

What is on offer today is a denial of the power of God in personal faith, justification of sin is nothing new but it is now encompassed in a new fairer terminology! Christians of all descriptions are being made out to be mad, if they refuse to accept these new ideals?

But we are warned that the love of people will grow cold in the last days, coldness to the toleration of others beliefs over that of their own! We are not talking here about religious sectarianism, but rather a new form of a religion dressed up as secular!

If we believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus and know that He died for our sins and has set us free from the curse of legalism, we are born-again and free from anything that would block us from the love of God! Our conduct must be truthful and honest as we work out our salvation in these last days!

Matthew 24:12,  2 Corinthians 4:1-2,  Ephesians 5:2,  Jude 1:23.

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.
