A selfish Society! One.

Sincerity and Morals?

It would seem as one gets older the world is changing to be a less better place, and yet one remembers my mum and dad saying the same things in their latter years too!

The Holy Bible does warn us that in the last days the love of many will grow cold, now that is expected of the world but not of fellow believers?

Sadly this is a fact that needs to be addressed in the Ekklesia, because if we claim to know God and have not love for others then their is something seriously wrong!

Psalm 63:11,  Proverbs 28:25,  Matthew 24:12,  Romans 5:11,  2 Corinthians 12:20, James 3:16.

Crossroads. One.

Easter the pivot of human History!

Jesus came to die for our sins on the Cross/stake/tree, this was His choice and ultimate calling for us to be saved! He was the sinless perfect man, the Messiah of Israel wither accepted or not and the saviour of the world!

Without the shedding of His blood in that one final atonement, there can be no remission of sins! Jesus did this for all who would by faith believe in Him, confessing and repenting of our sins.

There is no other way to be born-again, to be saved from the destiny of destruction that the world in its own achievement is heading for!

2 Corinthians 3:4-6,  5:18-20,  Luke 22:20,  Ephesians 2:13,  Hebrews 12:26,  1 Peter 3:18.

‘Happy New Year 2018.

Peace and Joy!

This is the traditional message of Christmas, that today seems lost in the rush of buying for everyone, but many of our cards even secular ones will still have a greeting similar to this?

Real peace and joy comes only when we know the Lord Jesus as our personal Saviour, other wise it is nothing more than feelings that are very much fleeting?

Christmas and Easter are about Jesus birth and death, he cam as the babe human the Saviour of the world and the King of Israel and He died for the sins of His people Israel and also for the Gentiles to make reconciliation between two races and between fallen humanity and God!

Genesis 28:21,  Psalm 16:4,  37:37,  Matthew 28:21,  John 14:27,  Romans 15:13,  Hebrews 12:2.

Evil Times?

We have been Warned!

Believers should realise by now that we are living in the last days, before the return of our Lord Jesus to take us home! The bible tells us that things are only going to get worse and that means more of everything that is bad?

But it also means that many believers will fall away into false teachings that oppose God, even the elected (Ministers, Priests, Vicars and Pastors) will too turn from the truth to follow things that displease the Lord!

Being selfish and lovers of themselves, indifferent and not having love of forgiveness but still appear as if they do?

2 Thessalonians 2:2-3,  John 14:27,  Matthew 7:15,  2 Peter 3:17.

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!

2 Corinthians 10:4-7,   Job 5:11,   Psalm 138:6,   Romans 12:2,   Philippians 2:1.

Terror Everywhere?

Fate!.

It would seem that we live in a different world from 9-11-2001, but we do not? It is the same old world, full of terrorism and murder!

The media are good at their job of pumping out propaganda and telling us the same line so long, that we start to believe it!

Fate is an actuality in the Bible, when Jesus pointed out the collapse of the tower of Siloam! Everyday we have to get on with our lives, more people are killed now in road traffic incidents and in the U.S.A. thousands each year are killed by the guns they claim protect them?

Luke 13:4,  Job 18:21,  Isaiah 1:28,   65:11,  Luke 22:37,   Acts 28:4.

Called Too? One.

Suffer for Jesus!

When we become believers we enter into a New life and relationship with God, through the good works of His one and only son! But we should know that we will be persecuted now for our faith, because Satan wants to take the peace and joy that we have in God away from us!

Persecution is not always a bad thing, the early Church in Jerusalem were scattered and by this the Gospel was spread further out into what we now term the Middle-East? Today Christians are suffering in many nations, where they are not recognised!

For many believers have to remain in a secretive state, from  Buddhist, Hindu and Islamic world to Communist nations such as China and North-Korea. There are as equal Christian religious movements too?

Matthew 13:21,  Acts 8:1,  11:19,  Romans 8:35,  1 Thessalonians 3:4,  7.
