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.

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.

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.

Finding comfort in the Bible. Part-Three.

Knowing God.

The world claims that it wants to find peace, this is the solution to all of humanities problems? But the more it claims peace, the more it does war? We often hear people in the Middle-East and Africa say, ”That they are a peace loving people, and tomorrow they chop off the heads of their prisoners in the name of God?

When we come to know God, through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, we have been set free from legalism and idolatry into a New Life relationship! And now that we are in this New place, we understand by the Power of the Holy Ghost/Spirit within us that we have a peace and a hope that the world can never have because of their open rebellion and rejection of God!

John 14:27,  Isaiah 9:6,  Romans 15:13,  1 Corinthians 13:13,  Philippians 4:7.

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.
