Being lifted Up. One.

Encouraged to Persevere?

One can not say that to have faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus will make us friends of the world? We may be called to serve in the world, but we must never think that Gods ways will be tolerated by the lost!

Everyday Christians are under strains from the daily pressures of life and this can be the same wither we are married, single of celibate. At times it can become unbearable, that we give in and compromise, but thank God we can repent and ask for Jesus forgiveness and get back on track once more!

As believers we have a Spiritual armoury, not of weapons that world uses to kill each other, but to counter all those arguments, questions, jeering and rejection that the world throws at us in their attempt to undermine the power of God!

Finding comfort in the Bible. Two.

Salvation.

Our need to be in fellowship with God, because most of the world is running around like headless chickens at this time? People are rushing here and there and everywhere and most of the time they are stuck in their mobile devices talking to people they do not know about nothing of any value?

Many people everyday are turning to God of the Holy Bible, out of despair, fear, and mental exhaustion? They want answers to what is this life all about?, Why am I here? and a list in a similar vain continues.

Becoming a Christian is a different experience for each one of us! Some where going along wondering about God, but not really interested and we were chosen! Others sought and found Him in Church, listening to TV or Radio? But all of us had to submit to His will by facing up to our failures and confessing to Jesus?

Amos 5:4,    5:14,    Proverbs 8:17,    Matthew 6:33.

For God loved….His. One.

He gave us His one and only Son.

This is the crux of the Christian message of hope and Eternity by believing in the death and resurrection of Jesus. God seeks each of us to have a personal relationship with Him, through His son Jesus and not any other way!

There is no mention in the New Testament of praying to Mary to intercede for us, in fact the New Testament makes it very clear that now Jesus has been revealed to the world He is our Intercessor!

In the Old Testament the Prophets had this prominent roles and many Christians misunderstand the scriptures to their peril. We are commanded to pray for each other and there are times that burdens may be carried, but we must not think we can side-line Jesus.

John 3:15-18,  Romans 8:15-16,  1 Timothy 2:1-2,  James 5:14-20.

Easter. Two.

Resurrection.

Jesus achieved for us the victory over the sting of death, by His rising from the dead on the third day. Today many people believe in science, in what they think they are able to see?

Science is limited by the ideal of theory, but faith and Spirituality deal with the emotional side of the human nature. Science cannot solve pain, disappointment, anger, fear, love, joy and peace, these are conditions that can only be sorted out by God.

God asks each one of us to examine our condition to turn from the negative failures and to seek Him, by having faith in His Son Jesus.

Amos 5:4,  John 3:33-36, 2 Corinthians 6:2, Hebrews 7:7, 10:5-14, Revelation 22:14-15.

Wickedness. Part-One,

Keeping Safe.

The world around us is full of wickedness, everyone tells lies like truth, even our own hearts want to sin it crouches waiting for the moment to enter our hearts and minds.

But we must resist it, refuse the temptations and say no to revenge and retaliation. Instead we must seek what is right and fare and always try to do our best to be good and avoid conflict.

Psalm 51:10,  73:12-18, Matthew 5:8,  Titus 3:5,  James 4:8.

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-Two.

Seeking Peace.

There remains to this day many people around the world, near and far who are not content with peace. They want to stir up old wounds for their own prestige, they dress it up as being righteous, seeking justice or we want.

Some times they will get a bit of what they want or want to achieve, so that people will praise them up. Strife is always a costly affair, because violence breeds more with hatred and factionism.

This is not Gods way, He wants peace and people to give up things for it to be achieved. Some ‘Christians are great players on theology and politics to suit their own selfish agendas. But it is only God who knows what truth is in our hearts.

1 Corinthians 14:33,  Hebrews 4:12,  James 3:16.
