Do we really have God's love for the people? We know that God so loved the world that He sent His only Son that whosoever believes on Him will not perish but have everlasting life but do we realise that we , as believers in Jesus, have the honour of completing what He started! What I'm saying is we are HIs hands and feet today. His divine plan was for us to represent Him and make the Gospel known. The level of ignorance about the true Gospel in Ireland is staggering. Yes they've heard the name of Jesus and the story of his death but the relevance is missing as the consequnce of sin is trivialised. SIN IS DEADLY That's why He went to the cross...Now can we see the love God has for the lost! To Love is to put others first.
We had a blessed time in Galway on Saturday, all 8 of us including...you guessed it...Freddie the Dog! 2 prayed to enter the Kingdom (not talking about Kerry!) and many others heard the preaching and witnessing. As the Lord leads I believe other towns and cities may come onto the agenda.
Remember that without the filling of the Holy Spirit EVANGELISM IS SCARY. But with His filling it is a joy and privilage.

At the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW, in heaven on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess thet Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Phillipians 2:10+11). Think about it, the devil himself will ADMIT that we were right to follow Jesus. FIx that firmly in your mind now AND USE IT AGAINST HIM when he again lies to you that this gospel of ours is not for real, or that God wasn't serious when He gave us His word. The fact that he bows the knee does not mean he gets saved from judgement but it does confirm that truth will win out! Let's be on the winning side asap. Ant

There is a way that SEEMS right to man but the end thereof is DEATH. (Proverbs 14:12 + 16:24) . It SEEMS RIGHT to ignore the call of God to repent. It SEEMS RIGHT to just “do your best” and believe whatever you want. It SEEMS RIGHT to dabble in eastern or western religions. It SEEMS RIGHT to lose yourself in career and finance. It SEEMS RIGHT to seek the approval of the world in every respect. If any or all these ideas were correct than Jesus went up Calvary’s hill in vain!….but He didn’t!
The end of much that seems right is death (eternal separation from the creator God). How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation (Hebrews 2:3) Don’t be fooled by the sugar coating the enemy puts on death.
No Jesus? COME.
Know Jesus? GO

I'm tempted to tell you about the chap who took my hand in prayer and humbled himself before the living God to receive the new birth...but I won't. Last night was certainly fruitful but God alone knows the full extent of our labours. We can talk at great lengths about the kingdom of God amongst ourselves as believers but for those who have yet to be made alive in Christ the message is of the cross. Jesus is the door into the kingdom and unless we are Born Again we will not SEE the kingdom at all (see John's gospel Chapter 3).
Before I went out last night I felt EMPTY. This has often happened and it is not a bad thing. God is teachig me that there are times when I NEED to be empty so He can fill me again with HIs Spirit. Don't proudly say that you've had an Acts 2 experience when you ignore the message at the end of Acts 4 which states that they (the people that were filled in Acts 2) were (again) filled with the Holy Spirit. Right now I don't particulatly feel FILLED but no prizes for guessing what my prayer will be before we go out this afternoon to again "fish for men"!
For those who pray THAAAAAANKS. WE need this vital support.
Dont forget to answet the qustion on the right hand side of this page before you leave. The Photo? Thats our pal Kenny in Manila witnessing and preaching to vast numbers. He's Irish and would appreciate your prayer support also.
In HIs majesty's Secret service
