Talking about Jesus?

To a decaying World!

Many believers I meet tell me that it is getting more difficult to share our faith in God, because the world wants their god to fit in to their ideas of who and what He is rather than us fitting into His will!

That is a tough area to be in, while most people today do not want to hear either about God or religion and yet there is so much unhappiness and despair!

The problem with religion is that there has been a failure to preach the gospel and many people believe that to be a Christian is just to follow the rules of we must not do this or that, steal, murder, commit adultery, be good living people and go to Church on a regular basis?

John 3:18-21,   1 Timothy 1:13-15,    2 Timothy 3:10,    James 2:5,    Revelation 2:13.

Fruit and Fire!

Only for Born-Again Believers?

When we are saved, knowing that God has forgiven our past sins, because we believed that Jesus died on the cross and rose again on the third day making that one and final atonement for sins, we will have received the Holy Spirit as both a guarantee and seal of our Salvation!

The Holy Spirit is that flame or fire of passion that burns within us, wanting to share the Good News message with the world around us, friends and family! He gives us a passion and compassion for others, while also the gifts become available for us to develop in Love!

But last of all we are given the free choices to go with God’s flow or to refuse to do so and so we must face the consequences of these choices at the End of the Age?

Songs of Solomon 8:7,   Joel 2:28-32,   Acts 2:3,   1 Corinthians chapters 12,  13,  14,  Galatians 5:22,   1 Thessalonians 5:19,   1 Peter 1:7.

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.

HELL. Part-Two.

The Broadway.

Many are on this route, living and walking in total ignorance of being cut off from the Eternal presence of God. We meet them daily in our homes, on the streets, travelling to work, they have no want of religion of knowing God.

Christians have a serious responsibility to tell this lost world, wither they like it or not that without a knowledge and recognition of God they will be cut off to this place of outer darkness.

Jesus warned the people of His day as he does today through believers that they face a fate worse than Sodom and Gommorah for their unbelife!

Matthew 5:22,  10:15,  Mark 9:43-47,  Luke 12;5,  17:29,  Romans 9:29,  James 3:6,  2 Peter 2:4,  6,  17.

 

HELL. Part-One.

The fear to Preach?

The one good thing about the Rev Ian Kyle Paisley was he had no fear to share his faith in Jesus with any and everyone. One might not agree with his politics, but he showed his faith by going into a power sharing government with the political wing of a terrorist group the IRA.

Many other Protestant leaders such as the Unionist party where perhaps more worried about sharing their secret societies and the worship of Bel and Dagon.

Today Christians of all persuasions are being forced to accept apostate teachings that have nothing to do with the bible. Believers must be brave and let go of their materialism world-wide to be prepared to warn these rebellious people of their destiny in the fires of Hell.

Psalm 55:15,  Isaiah 5:14,  Jonah 2:2,  Matthew 5:22-30,  Mark 9:43-47,  Luke 12:5.

Ireland in Africa. Part-One.

The witness of St. Patrick.

Many men and woman have and continue to serve for jesus in Africa and they continue to have a great influence in Christian matters. Saint Patrick has more of an influence today in the African continent that he ever had in bother Ireland and the British isles.

Patrick kept his faith in Jesus simple, but he always pointed to the cross and the need of a new birth and relationship with Jesus. His emphasis was not on good works, or the keeping of religious observance but of faith in action.

We hear daily of the terrible atrocious crimes and murders comitted against Christians and poor people in the name of God. Many nuns have been raped and murdered and yet despite all this wickedness the gospel of Jesus continues to spread and grow.

Acts 4:1,  8:1,   Romans 8:35,  2 Corinthians 5:19,   Philippians 1:18,  2 Timothy 4:5,   Revelation 7:14.

Revenge. Part-Two.

Give your anger to God.

The one great lesson that I have learned as a believer in Jesus and it was given to me by older Christians, as a young man ‘That was best to leave it with God.’

‘Don’t worry about them, God knows everything and he is the best to deal with it, not you spoiling your walk and witness of New Life in Jesus.’

It is hard for us to see the outcome of things and in our natural order we so much want to take action, But Jesus will help us and our Father will deal with all who hurt or attack us.

Psalm 94:1,  Romans 12:19.
