Holy Spirit Promised. Part-One.

Empowerment.

As believers without the Holy Spirit we could do nothing, we would not be saved. It is the Holy Spirit in this New disspensation that leads us to greater things, in the application of our faith.

In the past it was poured out on individuals to serve the will of God, Abraham, Moses, David and many more. But now all believers recieve a share of Him, the Spirirt of God.

Acts 1:8,  2:4,  Romans 15:19.

Promised Return. Part-One.

The Ascension.

When Jesus ascended, after forty day on the earth after His resurrection from the dead He promised He would return. Jesus is returning for us who believe, to take us home to Heaven. He told His Disciples that he was going to prepare mansions.

It is the world who are only afraid of the Lords return.

John 14:1-3,   Acts 1:7-11,  1 Corinthians 15:52,  2 Peter 3:10.

Waiting. Part-One.

Don’t give up!

The waiting game is a hard place to be for all of us, it could be the parcel in the post or the email that is the answer to a job, a date, a refund. We could be waiting for blood results from the hospital, a letter from the GP, a Job interview.

The time to us seems longer than it actually is, this was the same with the Disciples. They had to wait for His resurrection and then to see Him and then when He left the stay in Jerusalem for the Holy Spirit to be poured out.

We must learn to wait on God and not give up, because Jesus always has the best for us.

1 Chronicles 23:8,  Psalm 27:14,  37:34,  Proverbs 20:22,  Romans 8:25.

Holocaust Denial. Part-One.

Deniers and Liers.

There are many people today in Ireland who who join into the Holocuast denial groups, not becuase of World War-II (1939-45) and its events. But because of their hatred of the Jews and the modern establishment of israel.

They have the habit of equating the suffering of the irish famine and British occupation with the Palestinians and their claims to their land. And yet it is the British Royal family who encourage close ties with the middle-east.

It all comes back to the bible and what God wants, He promised that land to the Jews and Israel long ago.  Deuteronomy 6:3,  Joshua 23:5,  Nehemiah 9:23, Isaiah 11:10-11.

But don’t try to justify you Sin by telling us that because of the New testament there are now changes!  Revelation 5:5.

Return. Part-One.

Day of The Lord.

Many people tend to forget when Easter is over that’s it in ‘Christian holidays. But we are told at the Ascension that He would return the same way that He left.  The return of the Lord has more to with just Judgement Day. There will be a period of a thousand year reign on the earth and various periods to go through before the final end.

So humanity is being plenty of time to repent of their Sins and turn to acknowledge and believe in Him.  Matthew 16:27, 24:29-31, Mark 13:24-27.

Ascension. Part-One.

Time to leave.

Jesus had been on the earth for forty days after his resurrection from the dead and had been seen by over five hundred people and his disciples. But it was now time for him to return to the father. He had to go, because only by his going could the promised Holy Spirit be poured out on the new believers and the new dispensation of the Way.

Mark 16:19-20,  Luke 24:50-53,  Act 1:9-11.

Ascension.

of the Lord Jesus.

Jesus was now departing back to heaven, after spending 40-days with His disciples and followers proving to them that he had really risen from the dead. But it was now time to go. He had promised that when he went he would send the Holy Spirit/Ghost, Paraklete to comfort them. Acts 1:9-11, Luke 24:50-51.

But this was not the end.. Jesus will come back one day, the same way that He left and everyone will see him. There will be no escape. We who have a believing faith in Jesus must not loose hope of that promised return. The world without him on the other had will fear His return. Revelation 1:7.
