God with Us? Part-One.

Root of David!

The account of the shepherds out in the fields being visited by the heavenly host is a lovely account of the grace and mercy of our God! But why did he appear to these men, well that should be obvious, since the ancestor of Jesus was King David who started out life as a shepherd boy?

Jesus later would refer to Himself as , ‘I Am the good shepherd!

This theme of shepherding sheep literally and also Spiritually in the sense of leadership and responsibility is one to be heeded, since many today look after themselves first!

God is warning us who are in this role to end it, because we will at the end have to give an account of our actions to Him!

1 Kings 17:34,  Ezekiel 34:5-23,  Matthew 1:23,  12:36,  Luke 1:27,  2:8-20,  John 10:11,  14, Romans 14:12,  1 Peter 4:5.

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.

Partakers. One.

Power and Service.

God has allowed us to join with Him in displaying His power and serving Him. This is not given to unbelievers, only those called through faith, forgiveness, repentance and His kindness or Mercy.

Theios from the Strong’s Greek G2304 Gives us the sense that God is Devine, Divinity.

We are allowed to share in His work of preaching, teaching and speaking the Gospel Good News of Jesus everyday. God in choosing us wants us to a people of valour maturity and living in the victory of the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus!

Hebrews 9:1,  2 Peter 1:3.

Real Equality. Three.

Knowing God’s Mercy.

Jesus was trying to show the people in His days on Earth, what real love, forgiveness and Mercy from God was really like.

Are you born-again?

Then why are you actin like the world, that you claim God through Jesus has set you free from?

Why then can you not forgive others, as you have been forgiven?

Matthew 18:18-30,  1 Kings 21:29,  Philemon 1:18.

Forty Days. Part-Two.

Peter Restored.

Peter allow us to see how mercyful Jesus is to believers who keep failing and Peter was to fall again over dietry hypocrasy pointed out to him by the Apostle Paul. Peter fell into this sin, even though he had the vision of the sheet coming down and going up to Heaven.

This really shows us how fickle we all are to having the blessings and still loosing it at some point to some weakness that just keeps coming up again and again.

John 21:15-25,  Acts 10:13,  11:7.

Revisionism. Part-Two.

Let us move away from the holocaust and look at the history of other nations and peoples. There are many who would today say that European slavery in west-Africa only occurred because there was a local demand for it. In some ways by saying this, one could justify Europe’s past sins. This in another way takes away the horrific way people were treated, separated from loved ones and children, degenerated and humiliated for profit.

There are equality as many British historians who have played down the Irish potato famine and hide the facts that the London democratic parliament passed legislation to forbid the kindness of Christians to have mercy by feeding the poor. This is the dangers of changing history. God requires of us to be honest and truthful in all that we do and say.

Job 6:25, Psalm 15:2-3,  Luke 8:15, John 8:38.
