God with Us! Part-Two.

Prophecy fulfilled and the work of the Holy Spirit!

The birth of Jesus is the focus of what Christmas is really all about, how God became man in human flesh and how by the work of the Holy Spirit Mari remained a virgin to her husband Joseph!

It is a miracle like the many that we find in the Bible, but people today reject everything that is not rational to their understanding? They cannot believe God, making all sorts of excuses about Him in relation to suffering, starvation, natural disaster not being prevented?

But in this story of the events around Jesus we see the prophetic being fulfilled, the same is also in the work of our repentance and salvation! Being turned from being cold and callous to God to being open and understanding that we have a loving father in God almighty!

Isaiah 9:6-7,   Matthew 1:22-23,   Luke 1:1-45,   Hebrews 2:14-15,   Revelation 22:16. 

‘Out of Control? Two.

Wickedness!

The freedom of choice has allowed humanity to choose its destiny and today the world is full of wickedness, turn on the Tv, media, computers, read the papers, even conversation in the club, bar and home evil, war, murder, killing, disasters are the prevalent news?

But this choice will lead to our ultimate destiny of disaster and being cut off from God for eternity!

People do not want to see these truths, they want for themselves and they want excuses to block off faith, religion in their lives! Many go through the practice of religion, because mummy and daddy did it, its a tradition and nothing more?

But some have faith, misguided or not there is still the opportunity to know the truth of Jesus death and resurrection and to find that personal relationship directly to our Father God without the need of Mary or another legalistic way!

Psalm 13:14,  112:4,   Amos 5:4,  John 3:3-36,  12:46,  16:33,  1 John 2:L13-14,  Revelation 7:14.

Blinkers. Part-One.

A Limited Vision.

This post is not about horse racing, which I am sure will be a disappointment  to some? No this is about ‘Christian Revival in Ireland, which many ‘Christians do not believe has occurred since 1859.

This is because they have allowed themselves to become blinkered to the movement of God around them. There where Revivals in Ireland in 1928 and 1994, but very few established Christians saw this and reacted to it.

The reasons for this lack of belief, sadly is the bigotry that plagues Ireland as a nation and peoples. Sectarianism, seclusion and hatred has stopped the power of God. This does not mean that people are not getting saved, it is just not recognized as a move of the Holy Spirit.  Act 1:8, 1 Corinthians 3:16, Jude 19.

Return, Part-Two.

‘Terror.’

For the believers in the death and resurrection of Jesus, by faith the ‘Day of the Lords return’ will be a great one. Our time to go home will have come, but for those who do not believe in will be a day of panic and terror. Isaiah 13:6-16, Revelation 6:12-13, 8:10-13.
