I Patrick a Sinner! One.

Many claims on Him?

We now know that there were several Patricks sent to Ireland to convert the pagans to Christianity, but this Patrick was different in that he did come on a mission but rather as he says a slave!

Today the many traditions each place their own claim on him in relation to nationality, but it was Patrick who said later in life, ‘We Irish!

Patrick was a British-Romano Christian and his times have nothing to do with the Britain that has been existence this last thousand years! His family perhaps felt no need to return to Italy and stayed on working their lands, but Celtic pirate raids started to become more and more widespread and eventually Patrick was captured!

He tells from his writings that he was a rebel and most youth are to their parents? But he had some faith and this came to play in his mind and heart, when faced with the west and cold conditions he was expected to work in!

His whole life from these two sets of writings reveal and ordinary man, struggling to cope with the conditions around him like so many of us today!

‘Happy New Year 2018.

Peace and Joy!

This is the traditional message of Christmas, that today seems lost in the rush of buying for everyone, but many of our cards even secular ones will still have a greeting similar to this?

Real peace and joy comes only when we know the Lord Jesus as our personal Saviour, other wise it is nothing more than feelings that are very much fleeting?

Christmas and Easter are about Jesus birth and death, he cam as the babe human the Saviour of the world and the King of Israel and He died for the sins of His people Israel and also for the Gentiles to make reconciliation between two races and between fallen humanity and God!

‘All change in America?

It is not long now until we will be seeing great changes in the United States of America, if spiteful Obama does not start a war with Russia? Trump is different from any previous leader of America, because he plans to make some serious and dramatic changes in support of Israel and the breaking ties with NATO and bucket politics?

The media have played the old game of digging up the past to shame him now and one has to wonder the way the Democrats are going are they trying to stop him from getting into government?

The bible tells us that the time of the Lords return is near and that a man of intrigue will arise! He will be smart and slippery and will appear to some as one thing, but later turn into a world tyrant and reveal his real identity?

2 Thessalonians 2:1-13,   Romans 16:18,   Psalm 81:11-12,   1 Timothy 4:1-3.

LOVE. Part-One.

Loving Others.

It is so easy to say, ‘I love you, yet it is very hard to put love into practise. The world has ‘Luu’ve and most of it is connected with sexual lust and flimsy comments, sometimes it is linked with humanitarian issues but generally it has little meaning or effect.

Jesus asked the rich young man to do some things, which would help him to enter the kingdom. He had done the first two, but now he had to put into practice Love and that would cost him.

Mark 12:30-34,   Exodus 20:2-3,   17,    Leviticus 19:13.

Wealth. Part-One.


Many people today are rich and so are many Christians, but it is we who need to be responsible with how we use our wealth. Many Christians are into the prosperity gospel and with it believe they can bi-pass the poor and the weak around them.

Many people want to enjoy life and have it in this world, but they perhaps should read the bible in relation to the many accounts that Jesus told us about those kinds of people!

Job 22:6-9,  Luke 12:17-21,  16:19-31.

EASTER. Part-One.

Jesus said….

He will go up to Jerusalem and be delivered to evil men, but on the third day He would arise. These passages confirm that the Lord told His Disciples He was going to the Cross and that He would rise from the dead.

Matthew 16:21, 17:23, 20:19, 27:64. Luke 9:22, 13:32, 18:33, 24:7, 21.

The agony of the garden has more to do with the human nature of Jesus as He surrendered to the will of His Father. We must maintain that Jesus was the Perfect-God man and that He was a perfect Jewish man.

Matthew 26:36-50,  Mark 14:32042,  Luke 22:39-49,  John 18:1-2.

‘Nailed for Us. Part-One.

He was Bruised for Us.

Easter is less than three weeks away, many people will celebrate with chocolate eggs, bunnys and cards and have no inkling of what it is all about?

Jesus had to die in this way for us on the stake/tree/cross, it was the only way that we could be set free from our Sins.

Many Christians have sadly rejected the movie, ‘The Passion, but Jesus was beaten severly by the Roman soldiers, perhaps much more than any other man. We cannot deny what the bible tells us about these events.

Isaiah 53:5,  John 19:2-3, 5.
