Mission. Part-Two.

Irelands Great Legacy.

From 500AD the Celtic Church expanded dramatically over the next one-hundred years after the death of Saint Patrick, reaching most of western Britain, Scandinavia and northern Germany? No one truly knows how far the Celtic Church progressed in the 450 years prior to the Norman invasion of the geographical British Isles?

One will always find fault with Christians in relation to temptation and sin, because people expect us to be perfect? Failure is seen as a smug comfort to the lost, but on the day of judgement there will be many regrets?

Today Ireland and the Celtic Church is still operating and sending out men and woman across the world to help those in need, much of this is not reported in the media because it is to occupied with senseless death?

Matthew 1:14,   Acts 14:7,   Romans 16:25,   1 Peter 4:17.

Mission. Part-One.

Past and Present.

We tend to think that this is not for our place, but going off to another land to share the ‘Christian Faith?’ After the events mentioned in Acts chapter two the Good News message of Jesus spread out then to the known Greek, Persian and Roman world, which in itself was quite big.

Many of those early believers paid with their lives within the Roman Empire for at least 300-years, being fed to the lions! But this message of Jesus death for the forgiveness of sins and His resurrection from the dead did not die away but continued to grow!

Africa and Britain saw the first believers arriving from 34AD to the influx by 126AD, but it is not known when the first buildings were erected for meetings came about?

Matthew 28:19-20,  Mark 16:15-16,  Luke 24:47-48,  Acts 1:8,  Romans 10:18,  Colossians 1:23.

Ireland in Africa. Part-Two.

UN Troops.

The saddest deployment for ireland in Africa, was that of the Congo rebellion and the loss of soldiers. Wars are plenty on this very divided continent, over millenia this has been the case. Tribal, political and religious ideology, if not just gangs of criminals have plagued the peoples of many nations.

Many British colonial regiments had Irish detachments, particulary in the Boer wars in South-Africa 1899 and 1904. Irish Republican also fought with both the Boers and later the ANC, right up to the release of Nelso Mandela.

Many Christians have lost their lives in missionary work, which today is paying off with a rise and revivals after revivals across many of these distrubed lands.

God who chose Ethiopia, Cush, Libya, Sheba and Nubia is now at work all over and many lives are being changed for the better. One day black believers will be coming to Europe, Asia, Chian and the Americas to share the Gospel!

Genesis 2:13,  Psalm 68:31,  87:4,   Isaiah 45:14,   Acts 2:10-11,   8:27-29.

A month of Saints. Part-One.

Saint David and Saint Piran.

1st March Cymru-Wales, 5th March Curnow-Cornwall.

Very little is known about these two men, but what an impact as Christian believers preaching the ‘Good News message they have had over the last 1500 years in the western regions of mainland Britain.

Many people will jump up and protest that these were good Catholics, but how wrong you are. These men like Saint Patrick, the establisher of Celtic Christianity and mission was a born again Christian and His followers were the same.

They held no alligance to Rome but their Lord Jesus alone.

Exodus 15:2,  Psalm 18:46,  27:1,  Romans 8:26-27,  Philippians 2:12,  3:3.
