The faith is ever so clean. No cigarettes, no booze, no coffee, no drugs….
well really there is no magic formula which people can use to find Jesus and salvation and glory! It’s all down to the mercy of God whether we attain heaven. We have to really hope and pray on Judgement Day that Jesus is by our side don’t you agree! So I’ll call this post, ‘Mercy on Judgement Day’.
Luke 1:50 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.
Of course we should really fear, as in frightened, God, as he has the power to do to us what ever he pleases, our life is in his hands, however, fear definition in Luke 1:50 simply means respect. We just need to respect God ALWAYS, from generation to generation, this way mercy will surely be ours although we certainly DO NOT DESERVE IT!
I’m confident enough to say ‘I’ll make it to heaven, no problem’ however when I do just take a moment and think what if I MIGHT not get to heaven! then this inner core of faith which fills me somehow causes me to grasp my hand tighter, holding on to Jesus Christ, and the best thing about it is ‘he doesn’t mind!’.
How about yourselves friends, do you ever doubt your salvation and forget that we need God’s Mercy to make it, and what if he doesn’t grant us mercy. A sobering thought. We has Christians though, and true Christians at that don’t have to ponder too long about the ‘unthinkable and hell’ happening when our faith somehow, and beautifully so gets us back on that ‘narrow pathway that leads to heaven’, where we just dust ourselves down and look around us to see if there is anyone else we can dust down also.
The robber next to Jesus was forgave and shown mercy by Jesus, he believed that Jesus was the ‘son of God’ and it’s as simple as that.
What fantastic Mercy.
May the mercy of Jesus Christ live with you now and forever more. Amen.

Hello Friends, after reading the passage on how Jesus removed the ‘devil’ out of a certain groups of people, and how these demons went into swine which plunged to their deaths, I pondered and thought about how I might write this short blog about Mark 5: 1-21.
It became apparent that the best verse was :-
Mark 5:19 Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.
I put myself in the place of that demon possessed man, and yes for sure I would be running after Jesus, and really just following him like some love-sick teenager, who as got the ‘hots’ for their first boyfriend/girlfriend, really doing nothing, being fruitless in life, then Jesus turns around and looks you straight in the eye and says
…’Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.’,
a little bit like a young pup following you everywhere you go and really you need to shoo the pup away to go back…But it’s for the best, Jesus loves you, that’s why he shooed you away, like the mother and father bird frantically calling for the chick/ fledgling to leave and fly the nest and take that first leap of faith!
So you go home crying! then something amazing happens, Jesus comes to you in your dreams and says, ‘I love you, I will be with you forever!’. You wake up the next day, and you can’t believe it, you are in LOVE with Jesus Christ, and you never want to leave him.
So proclaiming the gospel of our lord Jesus Christ is really what we Christians live for, don’t you think, don’t you agree friends. Friends, remember one point I would like to make here as well, Jesus says go and tell your ‘friends’ what great things ‘I’ have done for you. So you go and tell ‘your friends’ and you then feel deflated, down in the dumps, upset, not happy. Why? You have just found out that you haven’t got many true friends, they were just acquaintances at best, who only mocked, scorned and ridiculed you like they did Jesus during his ministry. That’s your revelation friends, the fact that you haven’t got many friends, however, if you are very lucky you may have a couple, but for sure you have always, always got one friend, Jesus.
Isn’t Jesus fantastic though folks, he shuns you in public, this protects you from the ‘sinners’ out there that may cause you harm, he loves you in your dreams, where you are nice and privately safe, and he answers your prayers and helps you find true friends on this planet, and there are lots of them that follow Jesus on that narrow pathway that leads to heaven.
is my Christian audio website, feel free to listen to some short Christian messages by myself,
and may the love of Jesus cast out your demons in a gentle way like when he brought the lost lamb back to safety across his shoulders. Now and forever more, Amen.
Hello friends, I concentrated my post today by concentrating on the word ‘follower’. What is a follower? Are we really true followers? The answer is No, a resounding no we are not. I chose the above title because I did quite well for about ten years without a car, I cycled, caught buses, walked, jogged.
Then a few years ago I decided to buy a car again and thinking about the above verse of scripture taken from the gospel of Luke chapter 18, which is about the rich young ruler, who walked away sad from Jesus knowing he would not do as Jesus told him, ‘give up’ his wealth and follow him. It’s like we follow Jesus in this westernised high-tech world we live in, where I’m sure Jesus would be sad at how easy we have it, and more precisely how easy we get distracted on the computer and do other things. The good old days have long gone, in England, Staffordshire during the extended family years of the 20’s and 30’s where grandparents, parents and children and grand children lived under the same roof, and the little ones would help granddad to get about probably suffering with arthritis or some common ailment of the yester year period. Them days were ‘golden days’, where the young were nurtured to expand their mind and use their imagination a lot! Jesus silently approving I’m sure as stories were read aloud and the whole family sat huddled around the log/coal fire listening to the old bakelite radio, maybe to some ‘family favorites’ station, with a hint of Jesus especially around Christmas time.
Nowadays, Xbox, kids playing games, struggling how to spell at school needing to ‘Google’ everything. And some of those ‘x’ rated games on the market, Jesus would bury his head in hands I’m sure. But to follow Jesus. How to fight all of the anti – Christ people and things and teachings and….It’s not to late to sell everything and follow Jesus. It can be done. You see friends it all starts as that small seed of faith in the garden of our souls, growing into a huge tree of life’ our life, and we are ‘aware’ that to get closer to Jesus we need to ‘sell up’. Let’s give up something for Lent! That’s your personal choice. Give up something that just gets you a few millimeters to Jesus, not much but closer, definitely closer, an accomplishment that not many people ever get near. Getting nearer to Jesus though is definitely the right direction to follow him I’m sure. Oh what fantastic and pure joy, beauty and grace to follow Jesus and more importantly for the follower being ‘led’ by the one and only God. And then, well nothing to really shout about, just being true followers of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Everything is all right now friends, Jesus is calling, and we can hear him oh so clearly.
You know, I know and Jesus knows that we are all sinners. But the majority of the world out there are in denial,
no way are they a sinner, and people like us want our heads examining and staying well away from them. Getting out of that denial attitude is key to finding Jesus or finding ones pot of gold in life whatever that may be. It’s like a lot of these ‘help’ groups around the world, like alcoholics anonymous start off by saying in the group before they start to see ‘hello my name is whatever, I’m an alcoholic’, therefore if they admit they have a problem then they have got something to work on which they can hopefully resolve one day. People who don’t admit in public that they are alcoholics are destined to fail in their bid to become ‘clean’. Likewise, as soon as someone says that they are not a sinner, are going to have problems when it comes to mending their ‘spiritual disease’ caused by their sinful behaviour which they are in denial with.
The above friends can be a little hard to understand for most, basically because there are three or four important steps to grasp, and if one doesn’t see a step clearly then the whole picture or objective becomes clouded. We as Christians know these steps because this is what Jesus teaches us, however for the ‘newcomer’ who wants to find Christ then these beginning days for them need to be crystal clear. So ‘we are all sinners’, this is fundamental to believe, and if the person’s mind is saying no, no, no to this important fact, they are destined to be ‘like the seed sown on the rocky soil’, where their belief will soon perish at the first encounters of persecution. So that person needs to say between themselves and God ONLY! ‘Hello my name is whoever and I’m a SINNER’. What a great prayer for someone to start off with, Amen!
However, another important point to grasp on one’s journey to salvation is, the above is for people who want to go to heaven with Jesus Christ by their side, where this is the only way. Quite sever for most to accept, but once accepted what a beautiful life the Christian will lead. Amen.
Hello friends, I wrote this on Friday 20th April 2012,
Not a lot as changed over the last five years, just closer to Jesus of course!
God is our sword
It’s a great comfort to know that God our Father is our sword in times of trouble, in times of attack from enemies who wish us doom. God through Ezekiel chapter thirty-five verse five tells us, who believe in his son Jesus :-
Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end:
Ezekiel thirty-five verse seven:-
Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it him that passeth out and him that returneth.
Friends, summing up god’s words above, those who slay god’s children will be slayed likewise, and worse. It’s nice to know friends that god is our spiritual ‘armed forces’, and on the last day Armageddon is the battle field, where we’ll be safe at the back, in the rear with the love of Jesus, and Holy Spirit comfort.
Friends, I believe that we wave palm branches singing hosannas to Jesus as he enters the kingdom to save us from our sins and lead us to heaven. On the other hand god our father waves the sword of his word at our enemies who try and follow us into the land of milk and honey, wishing us illness and plotting our destruction.
God’s sword will cut the weeds down friends, on the Day of Judgement, and our fruit and flowers will be left, reaped and gathered for heaven by Jesus’ angels at his second coming, appearing on the clouds friends, for us to see.
I believe friends that the angels will dig down to our roots on the ‘Day of Judgement’, our soul, where our whole heart, mind and soul will rejoice in heaven. Friends, it won’t concern us because we will be in heaven, the point being the weed’s evil roots and soul will be cast into hell also.
Thank you Jesus for giving us the word of god’s sword to protect us, giving us a clear and safe pathway into heaven.
Thank you sweet Jesus.

and may Jesus give you the sword of his father to defend the vulnerable as we wait for salvation, now and forever more Amen.
