Nigeria in conflict Again?

Like much of Africa!

We only hear what the media sometimes wants to tell us about what s going on in the world? The situation in Nigeria is complex as it is many other places, but one has to wonder if Iran might be trying to stir up some sectarian conflict as it probably has in Yemen?

Many nations on the continent of Africa have never really got over their break from the various colonial powers that illegally ruled them in the 19th Century? Counter revolution has been the only way for many to get was needed done instead of seeking a democratic way!

God owns our world, even thou Satan has been cast down to wonder in the remote parts of it and cause trouble working through human weakness of our inherited sinful condition! It is we who must seek the Lord for our Salvation knowing that His one and only son Jesus has made the final atonement for our sins!

Genesis 10:5,   Psalm 9:5,  17,  47:3,   59:8,   John 3:3,  14-18,   Acts 4:12,   Romans 3:22-23,   Philippians 1:30,   1 Thessalonians 2:2,   Hebrews 4:12,   20:32.

Deliver us from Evil. One.

Satan and His Works.

Living in the world and practising our faith will quickly bring us into contact with the opposition forces of darkness?

But we are a redeemed people, bought back and covered by the blood of Jesus!

Because we know these things pertaining to our salvation and New Life, we must press on and not allow anything to try and knock us back.

Matthew 6:13,  Galatians 1:4,  1 John 3:8.

Halloween. One.

A night for the Devil?

Based on north-European paganism, Halloween/All Hallows has become a time in the Christian calendar to remember that we believers have a daily adversary  who is out to get us at every cost, to take from us our assurance of trust in Jesus.

Satan, the Devil and His demonic host are as real, we see their handy work in the world everyday, terrorism, corruption, starvation, child abuse, intimidation, violence, gangs, criminal activity, murder, drugs and alcohol abuse?

But with Jesus we have the authority to rebuke the enemies attacks on us and he will flee, if we refuse to give into temptations!

Genesis 3:1-5,   Job 1:7-8,   Matthew 4:1-11,   2 Corinthians 11:14,   James 4:7.

Endurance. Part-Two

Spiritual Armour and Power.

We are already armed for Heavenly National Service, some of us may of escaped the easy bit of doing our duty at home, now to face Satan and His host in full array.

We know that the Devil attacks the mind, our minds with doubts, jealousy, fear, arguments, discussions that lead no where and debate.

Logic and rationalism along with humanism are the death knell to the believer, and the people of the world are full of it.

2 Corinthians 10:3-6,  Ephesians 6:10-17.

EASTER. Part-Two.

‘As Judas took the Bread, Satan entered into him.’

Jesus knew that Judas from Iscariot was the man who would betray Him and yet despite this knowledge, He knew that this was the plan of His Father God to go to the cross.

Jesus still knows our thoughts, many people who claim to be Christians think they can get away with things, they can live as the world lives. But they are very mistaken in thinking that God does not know.

John 13:21-29, Genesis 6:5, Psalm 10:4, Matthew 12:25, Mark 7:21, Hebrews 4:12.

‘Nailed for Us. Part-Three.

He died for you and Me.

‘Christians can make a lot of fuss over doctrines about Jesus dying on the Cross and the Communion table, but the bible is very clear and so is the Greek. So their are no excuses to say somthing different.

Today is ‘Good Friday, when Jesus paid the penalty for our sin, failures. This day of shedding His blood is a one off event for the redemption/purshase of our souls back from Satan to God.

The blood was not spilt for legalists or traditionalists, but for all who would have faith in believing Jesus death and resurrection. This not the end of the story, but the beginning, because Jesus ascended with the promise to return for us at the end of the age.

Job 33:24,  Psalm 109:3,  Romans 8:34,  Hebrews 10:10-14.

Evil and Wickedness. Part-Two.

Curses and Witchcraft.

Halloween is big business, across Ireland, Britain and N-America for the 31st October. Many people enjoy the holiday without taking into consideration what it is all really about and the darker elements of it.

Many Christians do not want to make us fuss about it, let the world enjoy and its not a big deal. In N-Ireland it has united cross communities. And yet this is a Satanic event that will be marked not by Christian activities, but by cursing and celebrating death.

Jesus says ‘that if we want to follow him and live the new birth and life, we must walk in His light.  Psalm 26:9-10,  Isaiah 8:19, John 8:12,  1 John 1:7-10, 1 John 3:8.
