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!

Nigeria in conflict Again?

Like much of Africa!

We only hear what the media sometimes wants to tell us about what s going on in the world? The situation in Nigeria is complex as it is many other places, but one has to wonder if Iran might be trying to stir up some sectarian conflict as it probably has in Yemen?

Many nations on the continent of Africa have never really got over their break from the various colonial powers that illegally ruled them in the 19th Century? Counter revolution has been the only way for many to get was needed done instead of seeking a democratic way!

God owns our world, even thou Satan has been cast down to wonder in the remote parts of it and cause trouble working through human weakness of our inherited sinful condition! It is we who must seek the Lord for our Salvation knowing that His one and only son Jesus has made the final atonement for our sins!

Genesis 10:5,   Psalm 9:5,  17,  47:3,   59:8,   John 3:3,  14-18,   Acts 4:12,   Romans 3:22-23,   Philippians 1:30,   1 Thessalonians 2:2,   Hebrews 4:12,   20:32.

Called Too? One.

Suffer for Jesus!

When we become believers we enter into a New life and relationship with God, through the good works of His one and only son! But we should know that we will be persecuted now for our faith, because Satan wants to take the peace and joy that we have in God away from us!

Persecution is not always a bad thing, the early Church in Jerusalem were scattered and by this the Gospel was spread further out into what we now term the Middle-East? Today Christians are suffering in many nations, where they are not recognised!

For many believers have to remain in a secretive state, from  Buddhist, Hindu and Islamic world to Communist nations such as China and North-Korea. There are as equal Christian religious movements too?

Matthew 13:21,  Acts 8:1,  11:19,  Romans 8:35,  1 Thessalonians 3:4,  7.

The Plague. Part-One.

Ebola.

This west-African plague is now hitting the western media with caution, after 4000 thousand people have died and up to three times that number infected or under watch.

The United States has been the first to send aid, the U.K. and Europe is to follow but is it enough or is it well out of control?

The bible talks about many plagues in the past for committing deliberate sins and in the future for refusing to recognise God. We must not judge Africa, but rather look at our own nations first and our reaction to God’s laws!

Exodus 7:14-25, 1 Samuel 6:4-5, Revelation 15:1, 22:18-19.
