LOVE. 2.

Hate what is Evil and….

Love the truth, so that we can return to God an appreciate what Jesus has done for us!

Salvation came at a cost, blood was spilt to bring us into a New Life and Relationship with Him and our Father? Why then do we not believe the world of God, and why do we continue to live like the world?

Lifestyle is an excuse to refuse to change to the way that he wants us to be, less of self and more of Jesus? It is an honour to suffer for doing the right things, not a burden! Jesus went to the cross for us of His own choice!

Loving God is much more than the traditional Saint Valentines, when it is applied in Love and truth!

Exodus 20:20-23,   Job 31:11-12,   Isaiah 1:17,   Romans 1:27,   2 Thessalonians 2:10, James 1:27.

Jesus First. Part-Three.

Enquiring with wrong motives.

There are many people today who will seek after Jesus, believing God will accept them their way. They attend meetings, take the free launch, even seek a shelter and make many nice comments.

But the reallity in their own hearts and minds is full of selfishness and they want God to fit in their pocket, rather than fitting in His. They have deluded themselves with a fantasy Jesus, one perhaps seen in the movies or from some childhood understanding they thought.

We see that when the Magi arrived from following the star, they went to the logical place to find the King of Israel the palace in jerusalem. There they met King Herod who enquired he too wanted to meet this speacial child.

But his intentions were to lash out and murder evey chld from baby yo two year-old to save his power base.

Matthew 2:1-11,  Genesis 35:16-20,  Jeremiah 31:15,  Matthew 2:16-18.

Paying the Price.

Stephen.

Stephen is the first Christian martyr of the New Tesatament and is an example to all of us, that sometimes we may end up in a sticky situation. The men who murdered Stephen hated him, because they could not prove him wrong and at the same time they were refusing to believe the truth.

Today the world is full of wicked, evil and selfish people, who just want to take what is not theirs, want to lie and steal, refuse to work, make excuses. We need to be careful in what we say and not to over do it.

Psalm 44:22,  Acts 6:11-15,  7:54-60,  22:20,  Revelation 12:11.

Saint Valentine. Part-Two.

A Good Wife.

The fist things to say is ‘that no one is perfect.’ All of us are sinners, failures, that’s the fact of being a human. The Bible is a book that gives the reader guidelines for living our daily lives, all the more better if we know the Lord as our personal Savior.

Today in western societies we use the word partner to describe the relationship of two people. But in the marriage of men and woman essentially that is the foundation of relationship. A good marriage means having two people who are prepared to ‘give and take.’  Psalm 128:1-4,  Proverbs 31:10-31.

Pentecost, (50-Days). Part-Two.

The Holy Ghost/Spirit (Parakletos) is only given to believers in Jesus. In times past God gave the Holy Ghost to His Prophets and people he used to fulfill his plans (Exodus 31:3, Isaiah 42:1, 57:15) and will and then he could remove the Spirit. Psalm 51:11.

But we are warned that there still remains conditions to having the Holy Ghost and that we cannot take lightly the cost of the blood shed at the final atonement of the cross. We also must not insult the Holy Ghost by continuing to live as we did before we committed our lives to Him. 1 Corinthians 3:16, Hebrews 10:26-29, James 2:26.
