Vision with God! Two.

Knowing the need to be Free?

Freedom is the key to salvation through the good works of Jesus on the cross and His rising from the dead! Without faith that the son Jesus can set us free, we live in the vision of God daily!

There is no need of Mass, but instead the Communion table of believers in fellowship with God! We need no intercessor, since Jesus must be the focus of our prayers and relationship!

People both in the world and the Church will stop us from serving God, by making rules that imply it is they who are called and not anyone? This flies in the face of what the Apostle Paul said about himself, and the many that have followed in their personal relationship with Jesus!

John 3:15-21,  8:7,  32,  2 Corinthians 11:6,  1 Timothy 1:12-13.

‘Our Father?

God our Father!

All of have had fathers, some good, some not so? Some died, while others ran away to avoid responsibility, while still others were part of the mixture of human relations and sin outside wedlock?

In this world what ever set up or relationship we have with or are a father it is up to us to make the best for our children and do what is right and best? But when we know the Lord Jesus as our personal saviour, we come into personal relationship with both God and His one and only son Jesus!

Knowing God as our Fathers, opens us to know that he cares, loves and always wants the best for us!

Isaiah 63:16,  64:8,  Malachi 2:10,  Matthew 6:9,  Romans 8:15,  1 Corinthians 1:3,  8:6.

Cleansing Blood. Two.

Atonement and Redemption!

Jesus blood was spilt for all believers in His death and resurrection, for all who have repented of their failures and sought God? The Mass runs contrary to what the Bible has to say in relation to the spilling of Jesus blood, that it was a one and final event!

The most important thing that one can gather in this life s to know the Lord as our own personal saviour! There are only tow ways after death, heaven or hell and the choices have to be made here and now?

1 John 1:7,   Romans 5:9,   1 Corinthians 11:25,   Ephesians 1:7,   Hebrews 9:22.

Jesus, witness the Truth. One.

‘Glory to God in the Highest.’

Angels appeared to shepherds in the field to tell them to good new that Jesus their Messiah was born in stable! This apperance is not a fluke, but points to Jesus ancestor David the King of Israel and friend of God?

Many people still have the religion that they were brought up into today, but everything to some is order and tradition? It is not based on faith or trust in God, there is no personal relationship with God, with Jesus?

But many thousands each year do come to a personal faith in Jesus as their own personal Lord and Saviour! They had an encounter with Jesus, that has changed their outlook from keeping rules to being set free?

Isaiah 53:4-7,  Luke 1:34-38,  Luke 2:10-15,  Romans 3:23,  6:23,  1 John 1:9.

Reconciliation. Part-Two.

Back to God.

Jesus death and resurrection is the divine reconciliation between humanity God, this is achieved by placing our faith in the Good Works of Jesus and not based on our own deeds!

It is Jesus who has taken the worlds sin upon His own body, He is the one who is Eternally marred for us. If we choose to turn from our failure and admit, God will forgive us! But we must not return again to what we were, but we must move on in personal relationship with Him.

In so doing we are reconciled back to God again and in Him will find daily strength to push on with the problems of life.

Ephesians 2:16,   Colossians 1:22,  2 Timothy 4:18.

Reconciliation. Part-One.

God and Humanity.

Jesus is that first step in reconciliation between us and God and this is what was being marked a few weeks ago at Easter. It is faith and the admitting of our failure that brings us by Jesus blood into this new relationship.

The bible explains it in simplicity, it has not become a doctrine or a religious ritual as some arms of the Christisn Church ensnares many into believing.

God does not want to see any human being of His creation lost, but we all have the choices to choose the way to go?

2 Corinthians 5:18,  Colossians 1:20.

Trusting and Relying on God. Part-One.

Faith.

We all should have faith to belive, but faith does not stop with repentance and entering into a new relationship with God’s Son Jesus! Faith must continue to work, to be active in our walk with Jesus.

The Greek word Pisits (Strongs Ref) G4107 can mean the moral conviction of truth and so it must be applied to be effective. We know that our God is with us at all times and in in all sorts of situations.

Psalm 7:1, 112:7-8,  Proverbs 14:28,  Mathhew 9:22, Mark 11:23-24, Romans 5:1, Colossians 1;23.

A month of Saints. Part-Two.

Father of Celtic Christianity.

What more can be said, that has not already been covered about Patrick! Apart from his own account of his life there are many legends and these are perhaps those extended accounts of some real events.

Patrick was quite a man, one as a believer who was determined to return to Ireland and presch the ‘Good News message was Jesus on the stake and risen from the dead. This message has not changed today, it is still the same as it was the those first who witnessed these events.

Being a Christian believer is not about saying words like a mantra of hail mary’s or going to confession, taking mass. It is about a personal relationship every day with Jesus and obeying His ways. It is about doing good deeds wither we are thanked or not.

Mark 13:12-13,  Luke 9:1-5,  1 Peter 3, 7.

God is moving in Africa. Part-One.

100 years on.

When we look back one hundred years ago to the continent of Africa, we do not see much of God’s power at work. Yes many thousands of people were converting to ‘Christianity, but there was no out pouring of the Holy Spirit as in recent times.

It was said by many great Evangelical preachers in the UK and the U.S.A. ‘that many missionaries sent out to Africa, were doing nothing to reach the lost. But instead they were lounging around.

Today millions of people in Africa are coming to a personal knowledge and relationship of Jesus. Nations such as Uganda refuse to accept homosexuality as normal, while other nations are being attacked by western sanctions and Muslim extremism.

But the ‘Ekklesia of Jesus grows on. Amen. Psalm 69:32-33,  119:88.

Good Merit. Part-One.

I’m Alright.

Most people think that they are good, that they are better than most. I’s a good person, because I give to charity, go to Mass or Church, am fare with most people and try to do what is right most of the time.

Many care for their parents or others, believing that this will get them on good terms with God and they will go to heaven. But these are not the conditions that have been set down by God in relation to eternity. Yes it is good that we do good, but we must first confess that Jesus Christ, the Son of God is our own personal Saviour and that we live and move in His will, control and not our own wants and will’s. John 3:3-8,  1 Peter 1:17-19.
