Talking about Jesus?

To a decaying World!

Many believers I meet tell me that it is getting more difficult to share our faith in God, because the world wants their god to fit in to their ideas of who and what He is rather than us fitting into His will!

That is a tough area to be in, while most people today do not want to hear either about God or religion and yet there is so much unhappiness and despair!

The problem with religion is that there has been a failure to preach the gospel and many people believe that to be a Christian is just to follow the rules of we must not do this or that, steal, murder, commit adultery, be good living people and go to Church on a regular basis?

John 3:18-21,   1 Timothy 1:13-15,    2 Timothy 3:10,    James 2:5,    Revelation 2:13.

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.

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.

Religion. Part-One.

Guidance and a Compass.

Most people today live in a state of going from A to B/Z hoping for the best, but they quickly end up being dissapointed in wht they are trying to do!

We so do need to have God in our lives, religion offers the security of keeping rules and regulations and it is fixed.

But faith in Jesus sets us free from these regulations and rules and gives us access to trust and hope for the better.

Ruth 1:12,  Job 4:6,  Psalm 38:15,  Romans 5:2,  Ephesians 2:12,  Hebrews 10:23.

Terrorism. Part-One.

‘War without Rules?

Ireland has had a history of armed conflict, since it was first invaded and occupied by the English and their Welsh mercenaries. Over those 800 years, it has seen many wars with Britain, ending in the 40 years of the troubles in N-Ireland.

But we must not think that there is a new terror now in Europe, that plays by its own rules. Evil people want to push their agenda, not for the liberation of one but many at the same time. In 1605 Guy Fawkes had the same idea, instead of using democratic means within his reach. He instead chose violence, that would of lead to the mass murder of many innocent people going about their daily business.

Fear and intimidation are the causes of many conflicts around the world in human history, when a certain group of people feel they have to right to tell others what to do. You have to do it our way and we will always be over you. ”Familiar Echos.”

Nehemiah 2:10, 18,  4:7-8, 9-15, Psalm 23:3,  27:1, 56:5-6,  Matthew 10:26, 28, 31.
