Remembering the Fallen?

Armistice and Bitterness!

Old wounds in Ireland take a long time to heal, we have come a long way with peace, but not so the Protestants and their loyalties to Britain!

Despite much hurt and betrayal Ireland has south to move on, but there remains much animosity in Republicans as much as in Loyalists? Despite seeing a common ground between the social classes there remains a division that may never really be healed!

Division is the continued layout of remembering in France and Belgium based on religious backgrounds!

But God wants believers not to be caught up in the idealism of national identity, but rather to remember those who went before us and to be thankful  to God for His redemptive work and promise of Salvation and Eternal Life!

Proverbs 4:22, 13:7,  Malachi 4:2,  Luke 12:51,  John 9:16,  Hebrews 9:11-12,  14,  12:1-2.

Trusting and relying on God. Part-Two.

Hope.

Christians are always getting knocked for believing in God, we have to take it because that is what we have been called to do. The world is full of criticism against God, why does he not do this or that.

People do not understand that our key to surviving is hope, not in things seen but in the Eternal promises of God to us.

Psalm 9:18,  16:9,  Proverbs  13:12,  Lamentations 3:26,  Philippians 1:20,  Titus 1:2,  Hebrews 11:1-2,  1 Peter 1:3.

Walking with the Holy Spirit. Part-Two.

‘A Crucified Christian.’

Are we done with the world and all the bright lights of its dung and muck, have we surrendered ourselves completly to Jesus. This does not mean wearing uncomfortable cloathing or beating ourselves, but rather we have promised to allow the Holy Spirit of the Trinity to work in us a New creation.

When we have done with Sin, it does not mean that we will not be tempted by the Devil! But rather our will, will be stronger to resist him. We will be inclined to let attacks and disputes from other ‘Christians go by, like water on a ducks back.

We may still be hurt and offended, cut up inside, but we will push on and not show it.

Galatians 5:24-26,  James 3:14-16,  1 Peter 2:11,  Revelation 11:11.

Christmas. Part-Four.

Jesus the Jewish Messiah and the Saviour of the world is now born. Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 2:6-7.

He was not a helpless babe, his mother the Virgin” went on to have other children with her husband Joseph. Jesus was circumcised eight days after His birth in that stable. Luke 2:21-24. He had to fulfill the conditions of Jewish Law, since he was their promised Messiah.

Many people say ‘why do the Jews, not believe? Some do believe, but meanwhile some Catholic’s rely on infant baptism, conformation and the traditions of the Church, and they continue on in pagan revelry. We need all to come to a personal relationship with Jesus and turn away form Sin. Acts 4:12, John 3:15-21. Romans 3:23, 6:23, 1 John 1:5-10.
