‘I Have a Dream!

Martin Luther King and Bloody Sunday?

It is ironic that the words of this North-American civil rights preacher would lead to the rights of Catholics in Ireland and the eventual tragedy of ‘Bloody Sunday?

Martin Luther Kings words still and will continue to have impact around the world until the Lords return, for every oppressed peoples and cultures! Crossing racial, colour and cultural backgrounds and inspiring much needed freedom in this world!

Much can be said about his failings, well the Holy Bible tells us that we are all sinners! So stop pointing fingers in your self proclaimed righteousness and try Jesus today, while also seeking to help all who are oppressed in society and culture!

Joel 2:28,   Acts 2:17,   Leviticus 6:2,   Judges 4:3,   Psalm 9:9,   72:13,  103:13,   Matthew 18:27,   Luke 4:18,   Acts 10:38,  Hebrews 11:37.

PATRICK.

Feast day 17th March.

Happy Saint Patricks Day?

Patrick was no weakling, he was planning his escape probably from the day he was taken in what was the remains of Roman Britain? But it took some courage to return to a pagan land in the hope of converting the Irish to Christianity?

Many had tried before with little success, but Patrick was a man of vision and he was also a born-again Christian like many today both within the both the Protestant and Catholic Church?

Drink and debauchery will mark many of the celebrations today of what has become a traditional holiday, but there are as many Patrick’s around the world serving in great isolated and dangerous places as once Ireland was!

Romans 12:11,  1 Corinthians 15:8-10,  1 Timothy 1:15-16,  Titus 3;3,  1 Peter 1:12.

Mission. Part-Two.

Irelands Great Legacy.

From 500AD the Celtic Church expanded dramatically over the next one-hundred years after the death of Saint Patrick, reaching most of western Britain, Scandinavia and northern Germany? No one truly knows how far the Celtic Church progressed in the 450 years prior to the Norman invasion of the geographical British Isles?

One will always find fault with Christians in relation to temptation and sin, because people expect us to be perfect? Failure is seen as a smug comfort to the lost, but on the day of judgement there will be many regrets?

Today Ireland and the Celtic Church is still operating and sending out men and woman across the world to help those in need, much of this is not reported in the media because it is to occupied with senseless death?

Matthew 1:14,   Acts 14:7,   Romans 16:25,   1 Peter 4:17.

9/11 Plus.

Will there be another Attack?

The answer to that question is sadly yes, because Al-Quaida warned that they would be back in twenty years for round two! The new tower is errected and New York prospers with many new buildings to come.

But these evil men, now known to us as Daeish or ISIL/IS are still in active busines across Europe murdering people. Today four more were captured in Germany ahead of another attack, it is not clear if Bali was a teerorist attack.

What can we do? Prayer is very effective, reporting ones suspicions is perhaps second and reaching out to others with the Love of Jesus and the Gospel message is the third.

Isaiah 1:4,  Psalm 110:3,  Colossians 1:5-6.

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.
