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.

Saint Stephen.

December 26th marks Saint Stephens Day.

Saint Stephen is attributed as being the first ‘Christian Martyr’ of the Church. We learn about Stephen in the book of Acts, were a group of men become jealous of his correct teaching about Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit in the individuals life. So instead of tolerating him, they form a mob and stone him to death. Acts 7:1 -8:1. Saul is there approving Stephens death, this is before his own encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus. Acts 9.

The reality is ‘that all believers in Jesus as the Son of God, died for our sins on the cross/stake and arose from the dead will be persecuted, if not killed. To be a real believer is not about keeping traditions or set beliefs, it is about having the faith to put them into practice. More about the doing than the saying.
