The Philippines?

Islands of disasters and Troubles!

The history of this island archipelago is that of sadness from conflicts to natural disasters, from dictatorships to epidemics and President Duterte?

The people are perhaps some of the most resilient on the planet or so it would seem, but one is sure that the pains of loss never really go away and suffering probably continues in silence?

The islands are plighted with on going terrorism in the southern islands of Mindanao and Jolo and the threat to Manilla is always there despite U.S. troops being in the country! The war on the drug cartels continue, despite some injustices but before Mr. Duterte came to office the situation was way out of hand and effected nearly every family?

Religious faith in great in this nation, it keeps many going! But to know the Lord as your personal Saviour is even more important to encourage believers to push and press on with education and science to improve their nation with innovation?

Meanwhile the Philippines needs our prayers also, especially when it is out of the media headlines!

BREXIT!

Selling out Peace in Ireland?

The English do not care about what happens in far away Ireland the land of the ‘Little people, who they can walk over when they take the whim?

The Peace process will now be lost to new groups who want to return to violence as with the killing of the journalist McKee! PM Boris Johnson has no time for none-whites or the Irish, the deaths of another 3000 people are worth his pipe dream?

Christian values, where have they gone in all this while the British media tell their own people lies a large bomb in the city of London will be too late to the fate of these islands once more?

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!

‘All change in America?

It is not long now until we will be seeing great changes in the United States of America, if spiteful Obama does not start a war with Russia? Trump is different from any previous leader of America, because he plans to make some serious and dramatic changes in support of Israel and the breaking ties with NATO and bucket politics?

The media have played the old game of digging up the past to shame him now and one has to wonder the way the Democrats are going are they trying to stop him from getting into government?

The bible tells us that the time of the Lords return is near and that a man of intrigue will arise! He will be smart and slippery and will appear to some as one thing, but later turn into a world tyrant and reveal his real identity?

2 Thessalonians 2:1-13,   Romans 16:18,   Psalm 81:11-12,   1 Timothy 4:1-3.

Peace Processes. Part-One.

The Middle Ground.

There are many conflicts around our ever increasing small world, we only hear what each of our media outlets report in each country so we never get the full picture. To start a peace process we have to find a middle ground, it could be something we share but have differing opions or views on?

Some peace processes are up and running in N-Ireland, Spain, South-Africa, India and Pakistan and Colombia. These processes might not be perfect, but they are much better than full conflict.

The best peace to have between two factions is to have peace first in ones hearts with God and then we will be able to forgive eachothers misunderstandings.

Matthew 6:14-15,  18:21,  John 14:27,  James 3:18.

Xmass. Part-One.

For Many..

The traditional Christmass is becoming very much now one without the baby in the crib as it is replaced by snowmen, fairy’s, angels, Santa and modern childrens characters. One could call this commercialism, when it is sadly really a road o securalism.

The west is determined to start a war with Russia over the Ukraine and yet it is modern Russia that is more Christian than the west and they remain determined to uphold their faith.

Psalm 12:3-4,  Acts 7:38.  1 Thessalonians 4:8,  Jude 1:8.

Crises. Part-One.

Crises and Uprisings.

We live in a world that is always changing, wither it is weather, storms or revoloution and wars. We will be suprised in our lives by new crises far and near. Europe in changing, it has been a very long time since we have seen a huge war.

At one time there were dozens of conflicts occuring across Europe and the Empires of Europe, men were callled to go here, there and everywhere to fight from all nations.

Eastern-Europe has changed and this process will continue, but beware, do not get into the comfort-zone of thinking is will not happen in the western parts.

This is our time to seek the Lord, to be in our hearts and to be secure in knowing he will forgive us and help us to have a new future.

Joshua 10:25,  Psalm 17:4,  Luke 12:17-18,   Acts 13,  26:18,  Hebrews 13:6.
