Another Year?

Another Marching Season!

It never stops and nothing is resolved from year to year in Northern-Ireland? The billions will be poured in and it will relieve for a time, but when it runs out more demands will be met?

The initial problem has not been resolved by the government, but made worse by the bung or the bribe to play to suite a defunct and broken coalition? Which as being warned will end in tears, one hopes the tears of true repentance and not the continued hypocrisy of religiosity?

Proverbs 15:27,  29:4,  Isaiah 33:15,  Ezekiel 22:12,   Exodus 23:7-8, Ephesians 5:11-13,  Titus 2:11-12.

Resurrection Power.

Rising with Jesus.

it is said that not many ‘Christians today believe that Jesus actually rose from the dead, but if He did not then we cannot claim a faith-trust in Him and thus we have no promise of eternal salvation?

Jesus did rise and was seen by over 500 people, apart from His Disciples over the forty-day period until His Ascension back to Heaven! Baptism allows us the example of Jesus rising from the grave, but child baptism has no power because we are not at that time conscience of our sins?

It is only later on when we develop that we start to see our failures and if we repent and turn to God, believers baptism will be of great value to both us and all who witness our conversion-born again transformation!

John 11:25,  Acts 1:22,  4:37,   Romans 6:5, 1 Corinthians 15:12-13,  1 Peter 1:3.

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.

Patrick…

Born-Again Christian.

We know so much about this man mostly from the two books that he was able to write and have survived 1500 years to be re-printed many times. He tells us something of his life as a Roman Britain and his ignorance as a young man.

He tells us about his capture by Irish raiders and being sold into slavery, he goes on to tell us about the harshness of life before his conversion and after. An important area to mention in relation to the struggles of many believers today.

Patrick tells us about Celtic-Gael culture, his escape and his visions of needing to return to a people he would fall in love with. Patrick was indeed a great man, an even better believer, always emphasising the need of Salvation and personal repentance.

Patrick built five Christian centre and one missionary outreach centre, for those who would take the Gospel message to Cymru/Wales, Curnow/Cornwall, and Alba/Scotland.

Psalm 25:11,  John 3:15-17,  36,  Romans 11:5-6,  1 Corinthians 5:8-10,  Ephesians 2:7-8, 1 Timothy 1:15-16,  Hebrews 7:25,   1 John 5:11-12.

 

Understanding God. Part-One.

More than a Creed.

Religious conversion demands a creed or confirmation to be made and this opens the door to limited understanding of who God is? It is only when we have suffered and been brought to the point of provocation by our enemies.

God does not want us to fall into sin, but He knows we will at some point. he inturn would want us to seek Him and repent quickly.

Psalm 73:12-18, 107:8-31, Proverbs 25:3,  Romans 11:33.

Crises. Part-One.

Crises and Uprisings.

We live in a world that is always changing, wither it is weather, storms or revoloution and wars. We will be suprised in our lives by new crises far and near. Europe in changing, it has been a very long time since we have seen a huge war.

At one time there were dozens of conflicts occuring across Europe and the Empires of Europe, men were callled to go here, there and everywhere to fight from all nations.

Eastern-Europe has changed and this process will continue, but beware, do not get into the comfort-zone of thinking is will not happen in the western parts.

This is our time to seek the Lord, to be in our hearts and to be secure in knowing he will forgive us and help us to have a new future.

Joshua 10:25,  Psalm 17:4,  Luke 12:17-18,   Acts 13,  26:18,  Hebrews 13:6.
