Keeping it Simple?

We who are filled by the Holy Spirit have something to say to the world this year, starting from now! It is a simple message that the world needs to find Salvation in Jesus and that it is an imperative that must be done now, today?

We have all the tools to share our faith, we know why we became believers! We make lack courage, but the fire within will give us that! People of course will reject what we say, because think they know better, but ‘surprise, and be surprised some will turn to God!

Deuteronomy 30:19,   Amos 5:4,   Matthew 7:7-8,   Galatians 3:13,   Revelation 3:20.

Keeping what God has given us in Order!

We must take responsibility for our actions as believers to keep the oil burning, condition have to be met and to keep that armour which is a guide to our condition in order?

These illustrations are for our benefit as we grow daily and are changed into the people that God wants us to become! It is a life time experience on this side of Eternity and, looking back we will see how profitable it has been despite it being sometimes very hard and despairing?

John the Baptizer and Jesus!

The mother of John the Baptizer Elizabeth had a similar experience as Mary, she in her old age birthed a child of the divine. Her husband a priest in the Jerusalem Temple Zechariah was informed by an Angel that the Holy Spirit would do this work, despite their old age!

When Mary visited her relative Elizabeth both babies jumped for joy in each mothers wombs and when John the type of Elijah was born His father Zechariah gave prophecy when the Holy Spirit revealed it to him.

We need as believers never to forget in the mundane of human daily activity, that nothing is ever impossible with God!

Luke 1:5-60,   13,   15,   17,   35-37,   41-43,   44-45,   67-80.

Impregnated and birthed by the Holy Spirit!

Jesus the Son of God became human flesh, that is the essence of the Christmas story!

But how did this happen, it was by the Holy Spirit the power of God that came upon the virgin Mary to conceive Him and also to birth Him!

Mary remained a virgin until she married her husband Joseph and started a family by the natural order of man and woman.

Matthew 1:18-20,    Mark 1:15,   Luke 1:35,    26-38,    John 1:14,   3:14-17,   Romans 15:8,  Galatians 4:4-5,   1 John 4:9,   14.

The Holy Spirit?

Now that we claim a faith in God, through the good works of Jesus on the cross and His rising from the dead! We also come into a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit and His role remains the same as in times past!

If we rebel, then we will face the wrath of Him too as in times past!

So why are we doing things that displease God, since we have been bought with the blood of Jesus at a great cost?

Isaiah 63:10-11,   Acts 7:51,   Ephesians 4:3.   Hebrews 12:24,   13:20,   1 John 1:7, Revelation 17:6.

The role of the Holy Spirit?

In times past the Holy Spirit was only given to certain people, so that the will of God could be implemented, but now all believers by faith in the death of Jesus and His resurrection receive the Holy Spirit the third person of the blessed Trinity!

Why the change, because the Holy Spirit now acts as a seal or guarantee for the New believers and the outworking of Him is like flowing waters in creativity, activity and blessings to all around them believers and unbelievers!

Psalm 51:11,   John 14:26,   Romans 8:9,  Ephesians 4:30,   Hebrews 9:15.

Our nations are in Crises!

Many believers continue to accept the world and refuse the truth of biblical teaching, why? The answers maybe in that it is easier to be a. ‘Happy Clappy’ rather than applying the truth which is costly and yet this is what Jesus has commanded us to do!

Our world is in natural decay, wither you call it global warming or climate change it is out of our hands and God is the one behind bringing in the end of human history!

When nations crumble under the weight of their own sin and failures, it starts with the religious and the nations follows since we are seen as the moral guidepost? The way out of this mess is to make the altar call for repentance and a return to the obedience of believing, following and living the life by faith with Good works to follow?

Believers need to love each other and then the world to Salvation?

Many ask the question today, Were is our Churches going, our society is broken and there seems to be no hope?’

Perhaps if love was to start at home in our fellowships instead of bite backing, criticism and divisions, then God could move with us and the world outside would see that we are a principled people rather than one of emotions and feelings just as they are?

We are not of the world anymore, but we have to remain living in it and passing through it! But we also have to show the lost a better way and that is not a commonality but a separation from evil and darkness, the way of the ‘Light of Jesus love, mercy, forgiveness and grace leading to repentance and salvation!

1 Corinthians 13:6-7,   Psalm 10:3,   119:66,  136,   Hosea 4:8,   Luke 7:44-46,   Romans 1:32,   15:1,   Philippians 3:18,   2 Thessalonians 1:4,   1 Peter 2:24,   4:8.

Having the Gift’s Of?

When we come to the teachings of the New Testament we will quickly discover that having the fulness of the Holy Spirit in our lives also means that we must have love in all our actions and gifts to, because without them we are wasting our time and their is no power in what could be termed ritualistic religious practise or ‘Deadwood!

To be inspired and to have inspiration are the keys that open the door to service with God, but many believers lack this important knowledge for a whole host of reasons? Poor teaching, lack of wanting more of Jesus and His ways in our lives or even just not wanting to be committed to anything?

But when we are in tune as the Apostle Paul was telling his audience then great things will happen and we are seeing daily the movement of the Holy Spirit across the world, powers and authorities being removed in the right way and many coming to faith in Jesus in unexpected places, some even in our own criminal community!

1 Corinthians 13:2,   Nehemiah 2:12,   7:5,   Mark 11:22-23,   Luke 17:5-6,   Galatians 5:16,   1 Thessalonians 5:20.   1 John 4:20-21.
