God’s Protection. Part-One.

Jesus.

God recognised His own Son Jesus and He protected Him from baby to His appointed time, do you not think we as believers in Jesus will go unprotected?

If we are walking in the will of God and not on our own initiative, then we will be protected and able also to give thanks and praise God.

Matthew 3:17,  Psalm 18:49,  22:27-30

Walking with the Holy Spirit. Part-One.

Living and Walking.

When we were once part of the world, we lived as the world did. We did not know or recognise God, as we do now.

So now that we do know God, as our Father and Jesus as our friend and Saviour we do not need to continue on as we once did.

We tend to forget that we too can walk with the Holy Spirit, who is the third person of the Trinity.

Romans 8:4-5,  Galations 5:15-16,  1 Peter 1:22,   Jude 1:19-21.

Doing a Good Turn.

An Example.

Would yo put yourself out for another person, a neighbour, a friend, a stranger, your family? In some of these cases you probably would, unless you are to mean.

Jesus left us an example of washing feet, for us to continue. There have been many takes on it since, by various ‘Churches. Some modern adaptions are the polishing of shoes, but I like the original one.

It is a hard place to take off the shoes of your friend, even harder their socks or stockings. Feet can be really smelly, sweaty and may have bunnions and other nasty sores. Then you have to wash them! Jesus did it as a gesture to His Disciples, because they had travelled three years with Him and now He was leaving them fir the Cross/stake.

John 13:3-14.

Evil and Wickedness. Part-Four.

Ghosts and communing with the Dead.

Do you know there are ghosts, Jesus mentions them in the New Testament. But talking to the dead on any kind of level is a forbidden practice by God’s standards. What was done in the past, now must not be returned to.

‘All Hallows is about the power of God, through His Son Jesus to crush the power of Satan in our lives. That is only for those who want to seek having Faith and those who are living by faith in the work of Jesus on the cross for us and the power of His resurrection from the grave.

Leviticus 19:31,  20:6,  Isaiah 44:24-25,   Act 19:18-19

Evil and Wickedness. Part-Two.

Curses and Witchcraft.

Halloween is big business, across Ireland, Britain and N-America for the 31st October. Many people enjoy the holiday without taking into consideration what it is all really about and the darker elements of it.

Many Christians do not want to make us fuss about it, let the world enjoy and its not a big deal. In N-Ireland it has united cross communities. And yet this is a Satanic event that will be marked not by Christian activities, but by cursing and celebrating death.

Jesus says ‘that if we want to follow him and live the new birth and life, we must walk in His light.  Psalm 26:9-10,  Isaiah 8:19, John 8:12,  1 John 1:7-10, 1 John 3:8.

The road to Emmaus. Part-Two.

From Moses.

Jesus is walking with them along the road from Jerusalem to Emmaus and He starts to explain to them, starting with Moses all the events of who the Messiah was and what the scriptures (Tanakh/Old Testament) had to say about Him. Luke 24:25-27.

This shows us how we so easily can forget what we claim to know about God and also misinterpret the signs that are right in front of us.

They listened intently to this stranger unaware of who he was. As evening came he was about to leave them, but they invited him to stay with them. Mark 16:12-16.

Enoch.

The day of judgement is coming and all of humanity will be convicted of their greed, evil, exploitation. but on that day there will be no chance to repent of the wrong committed. Genesis 5:18-24, Jude 14-15.

Enoch was an ordinary man who lived by faith, he walked with God and despite having a family and all the problems that life brings, he was able to maintain fellowship with God. God was so pleased with him, that he suddenly took him, translated (taken-up). Enoch disappeared one day, there were no fanfares, celebrations, parties, he just was taken.

Leviticus 26:3, Psalm 1:1, 15:2-3, 16:11, Proverbs 10:9, 21:9.

The time for Salvation is now, today, in repentance, changed attitudes.

But there must remain conditions to continuing with the Lord Jesus. Romans 6:4, 2 Corinthians 4:2, 5:7.
