Let’s worship a golden calf, not God!

Let’s worship a golden calf, not God!

Let us worship a golden calf, not God!

Hello friends, I was reading Exodus 32, where Moses was gone a while up mount Sinai talking with God, and the people down below getting restless at his absence, and from my point of view Aaron getting anxious that the people may ‘revolt’, so pacifying that possibility asked the people to donate gold in order for the calf of worship to to be cast and placed before an alter.

The verse from that passage that I choose where God spoke to Moses and said :-

Ex 32:10…Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation…(KJV)

So where are we at here friends? Well for us believers in Jesus Christ, we are in a ‘great position’ as to non-believers as we know what is happening giving us the chance to do something about it. We are that people in a way, gee I like material wealth which is similar to idolising riches in our modern day and age, I like money in my pocket, I love it, like when the people danced around the golden calf like it was God. It was Moses that stopped God crushing them, Moses also crushed the golden calf to powder and made them drink it. Moses saved his people from idolising material wealth, just like Jesus has saved us from the wrath of his father God in heaven, by pleading with his father and saying, ‘forgive them father for they know not what they do’

God wants us gone friends. Yes he’s loving. all loving, but we’ve gone back on our word that many times he’s sick of us, he’s had enough of the no hopers out there, he just wants his loving children to bring them home to his beautiful palace. This is where we hold Jesus’ hand, not God our father, where through his mercy, we will surely enter into paradise.

It’s so difficult for the drug addict to ‘break the habit’, and only the strong do so and survive. It’s so easy for us to get closer to God by being strong and choosing Jesus instead of glistening gold and sparkling diamonds.

So friends, what do you say? 

Money or Jesus.

Let’s regularly pray to Jesus, let’s regularly stay together.

wrath-of-god-4

Just simple prayers throughout the day is enough.

When you are at your busiest, in a room full of noise when our minds are full of whatever we can turn to Jesus and say, ‘well Jesus we’re still here together’. Praise the Lord.

Baby Jesus statue’s head returned after orange replacement becomes viral joke

Baby Jesus statue’s head returned after orange replacement becomes viral joke

Hello Folks, I thought I would just post the above newspaper article as the head this artist temporarily put on the statue of our Lord and Saviour was really ‘hideous’, and this was obviously some publicity stunt by the artist.

It’s just as well we live in these modern ages as this artist would probably been burnt at the stake or put on the ducking-stool at the very least for blasphemy. This leads me to briefly talk about the worlds ‘modern day attitudes’ towards Christianity, Jesus Christ and God, where obvious morals, virtues are through the window. Seriously, mocking Jesus isn’t new, they did it as he hung naked on the cross, and they’re doing it now, perhaps making a few dollars here and there. In fact this is a great example of how people ‘throw away their only hope’ of happiness in this world, by disowning the only person who can save them, Jesus Christ. I suppose the ‘good news’ that did come out of this story was the fact that the original head was returned and fixed back on to the statue body!

People don’t have to fear Jesus.

People don’t have to fear Jesus.

People don’t have to fear Jesus

Hello friends after reading Mark chapter 4 I decided to concentrate this Christian writing on the final verse which reads

Mark 4:41… And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him…(KJV)

So friends if the disciples feared Jesus, how are the rest of the world going to view him? They are going to have a greater fear of the unknown caused by their lack of faith, their sinful thoughts and behaviours, their lack of understanding, their problem whatever that may be.

They don’t have to fear Jesus though, Jesus is love! The big gun they have to fear is God! 

Now Jesus is teaching us here what faith is all about and the preceding verse shows us that the disciples were fearful of the storm because they had NO faith in God! You see friends, God who is Jesus Christ was with the disciples, even in person, some two thousand years ago, and just because he was asleep on a pillow, their lack of faith was like God was not with them, not realising how blessed they really were to have God in the same close proximity of the boat meant they were the luckiest people alive, ever in fact. But that lack of faith they possessed may as well have put Jesus on the other side of the world.

So friends, it’s all about faith, trusting something or someone you cannot see. Just one question at this point, why do we have faith in Jesus? Well we are the lucky ones, because we love him. Isn’t that fantastic for us though friends, we automatically have faith in Jesus because we love him, and lot’s of people from all walks of life can’t love him because for some personal reasons they could never find that miniscule mustard seed of faith to begin with,

No need to fear Jesus 2.JPG

making them envious of us, and making them fearful of Jesus because of lack of faith.

We live such peaceful lives loving Jesus, that sea is always glass still calm when Jesus is close by and any close by rocks just turn into floating jellies which gently rebound us off.

We will never fear Jesus as true love casteth out fear. Amen.

Jesus is always near you

Jesus is always near you

 

Jesus is always near you.

jesus-by-your-side-2

Paul the Apostle wrote many epistles to his followers and loved ones which can be seen in the New Testament, and what always struck home with me was the fact that Jesus Christ was always close to him. I know Jesus is always close to his believers, however with Paul’s letters this is reinforced into our souls every time we read his God inspired words.

jesus-by-your-side-3

Jesus is always near you through his stories and parables, and with me the Good Samaritan

jesus-by-your-side-5

always reminds me of how Jesus Christ always in times of need, like when the beggar was beaten, robbed, left for dead, and none would help him save the Good Samaritan, a ‘people’ that were despised by nearly everyone just like Jesus was despised by nearly everyone, stopped to save his life!

jesus-by-your-side-6

You know friends, all of the times that we have been like that beggar, not literally of course, but times like when we scraped our knee as a kid, or times when we encountered our first close bereavement, virtually everyone passed me by except Jesus. Mum put the plaster on, Jesus stayed by your side too, until those sniffles and cries stopped and turned to laughter.

jesus-by-your-side-4

Jesus is always near friends, and always will be.

When feeling lonely reach out for Jesus

When feeling lonely reach out for Jesus

Mark 45 But he went out, and began to publish it much, and to blaze abroad the matter, insomuch that Jesus could no more openly enter into the city, but was without in desert places: and they came to him from every quarter.(NIV)

Hello friends, this is such a wonderful revelation, that when you are feeling very lonely in life, and we all go through this, we all suffer loneliness from time to time, all that we need to do is pray for Jesus’ love to enter our souls and them fetters of loneliness shackles drops from off our back, neck, legs, arms, everywhere. And the above verse of scripture tells us and hints to us and shows us how this works. Jesus was forced into lonely outskirt areas of the towns he ministered in, in order to flee the enemy. Thinking about it friends, when things aren’t going well in your life, how many times do you find that your friends desert you, they let you down you are on your own. How many times has this happened to you throughout all your life. I know this has happened countless times to you because it has to me. It’s like you are among people, good people, your friends, and yet you think as soon as something goes wrong, they will one by one desert you until there is just you left. Never!

lonliness-and-jesus-2

Jesus is always the last one to be with you. He never leaves! The Good Shepherd loves his little lost lamb too much to desert you. And this is how Jesus brings the true friends too your side. So when you are in your lonely place in life like Jesus fleeing persecution in very lonely and desert places where not many people go to, the true followers come to find Jesus from everywhere like the above verse states. Your friends will begin to find you and visit you from all over the world! Praise the Lord!

lonliness-and-jesus-3

This isn’t luck that this happens friends, Jesus Christ is a certainty. It’s impossible to be lonely when we have faith that Jesus is the Way to Salvation.

Jesus isn’t nailed to the cross no more, he is free, he is in your heart embracing you because you asked him not to be lonely in prayer! Absolutely awesome.

lonliness-and-jesus-4

No more loneliness friends, just leaping for joy for you and me, we are so fulfilled and happy with Jesus in our life don’t you agree?

So as Jesus healed the man with leprosy, he heals our loneliness too, and no matter where we go to, no matter where we are on this globe we are never, never lonely. Jesus is your friend for life, Amen.
