Destiny or faith

John 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come 
unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

In Islam we see Allah chooses whom he chooses and deceives whom he 
desires. The Qur'an openly states many times that Allah is the 'Best 
Deceiver' Qur'an 3:54, Qur'an 7:99, Qur'an 8:30, Qur'an 10:21, Qur'an 
13:42. If we go by the Bible we find the deceiving character is not 
God's nature but the nature of Satan.

If we read today's message one may ask is God like Allah, one who 
decides who will be saved? Since one cannot be saved unless one knows 
the Lord Jesus Christ and the scripture says unless the Father allows 
one to know the Son none can come to Him.

Christianity is a free will belief that means one has to choose to 
become a Christian and if one does not choose to become a Christian one 
cannot become one, leaving for the few elect whom God has chosen even 
before they are born. That means unless one realises they are a sinner 
and knows the consequence of their sins one cannot repent and come to 
God through Christ to become a Christian. One does not become a 
Christian by doing this but this is just the start of the journey of 
change which the Spirit of God does on that person, Christ is just the 
door to Christianity and the Holy Spirit is the potter who make one 
Christian (Christ like). Many stand at the door and think they are 
already Christians.

Destiny means the end result is decided and the recipient has no control 
over it. It is like a fast flowing river and the person is sitting in 
the raft without any paddles, thus has no option but to go with the flow.

Faith on the other hand means believing in the Truth. It is a choice 
which one takes to believe or not to believe, and what or how much to 
believe. So faith is relative, even though all Christians believe in the 
same yet how much of the 'same' they believe varies from person to person.

Christianity (life) is based on faith and not destiny; it gives choice 
and is based on free will. Scriptures like today's message and others 
like one which state the Book of Life already has the names of those who 
will enter Heaven so anyone whose name is not in the Book of Life is not 
one who will enter Heaven, these are still faith based and not destiny 
based. The twist here is of knowing God the author of the Bible. God is 
omnipresent which means present across space (everywhere), across 
dimension (across Heavens) and across time (in our past, our present and 
our future at the same time). So for God everything is before His eyes 
(figurative) and nothing is hidden from Him. So when God allows or does 
not allow it means He have seen the result. He is not like Allah who 
deceives or influences the down fall, but He does influence the rise, 
which means when we go the right path He encourages. There are rare 
times when an individual causes great harm to His people (those going 
the right path) where God does quicken that person's down fall by 
hardening further that person's heart.

Let us as Christians not think we become Christians just by believing in 
Christ. Christ is the door and by our faith in Christ we have opened the 
door to become Christians. It is the walk of faith with the help of the 
Holy Spirit that we become Christians. God knows how our walk will be 
and thus has written the report already. God desires we have good result 
but it is our desire which matters most. So if we have come to know 
Christ it means we have great chances of having good result provided we 
hold on to the faith and walk the path of change with the Holy Spirit.

[Prayer Starter]

Father God we thank You for finding us worthy to know your Son Jesus 
Christ. Father we know we have hope for good results. We pray our faith 
increases and we do not let go of the Truth for the desires of the 
carnal self, we become overcomers and part victors in Christ who has 
already overcome...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

John 3:3-7

3Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, 
Except a man be born again [from above], he cannot see the kingdom of God.

4Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he 
enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born 
of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the 
Spirit is spirit.

7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again [from above].

John 1:11-13

11He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons 
[children] of God, even to them that believe on his name:

13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of 
the will of man, but of God.

Romans 8:14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the 
sons of God.

Revelation 21:7He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will 
be his God, and he shall be my son

John 16:33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have 
peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I 
have overcome the world.

Do not be red

Amos 1:11, 12Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Edom, and 
for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because he did 
pursue his brother with the sword, and did cast off all pity, and his 
anger did tear perpetually, and he kept his wrath for ever: But I will 
send a fire upon Teman, which shall devour the palaces of Bozrah.

To understand today's scripture one need to have knowledge of Bible 
numeric and Bible symbolism.

Here the scripture (even other scriptures in this chapter) talks of 'for 
three transgressions' and 'for four'. Four symbolizes earthly or natural 
while first three are spirit oriented.

Edom means red / ruddy. Adam is a similar Hebrew word and means red but 
accurately means 'to be red'. Adam as a noun means man and as adjective 
means to be full of life. Edom on the other had means to be full of anger.

Today's message is for us and the Lord is telling us in today's message 
when we keep anger against a brother in mind / spirit, God does not take 
action against us but when we manifest this anger in the natural by 
speaking against the brother or by our actions then the Lord will punish 
us for that.

Today's message the Lord talks of punishment in 2 areas one is Teman 
which means south and symbolizes the person's righteousness. It also was 
the place the sons of Edom dwelled so the Lord does not pull up only our 
righteousness but also the righteousness of our children. Second area is 
Bozrah which means sheepfold, the hedge that protects them. In other 
words the Lord says when we keep anger and manifest this anger in the 
natural against our brother than the Lord will attack our righteousness 
and our hedge of protection.

There are cases where people had kept anger and let it manifest into 
hatred over many year. The person forgot the main incident but the 
bitterness remained inside and the bitterness manifested into serious 
sickness. The moment the person was make aware of the area of 
un-forgiveness and the person forgave, the person got healed.

To be angry is not sin but keeping anger is dangerous for we risk the 
chance of that anger to overtake our sanity and we start to manifest 
this anger in the natural; when we manifest this anger against a brother 
(including sister mature in the Lord) than we risk the Lord's punishment 
on our own righteousness and on our hedge of protection.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are a merciful God and slow to anger. You Lord have at times 
given man hundreds of years to repent before You punished man. In your 
Word You Lord have advised not to let the sun (symbolizing grace) go 
down on our anger. It is only by grace that we can overcome anger and we 
need to learn to be full of grace as You Lord are with us. Help us Lord 
to overcome anger and never to be Edom, let anger overtake us...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen

[Reference Scriptures]

Colossians 3:8But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, 
blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

Ephesians 4:26Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon 
your wrath:

Numbers 25:4And the LORD said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the 
people, and hang them up before the LORD against the sun, that the 
fierce anger of the LORD may be turned away from Israel.

Matthew 18:21-22

21Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin 
against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?

22Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, 
Until seventy times seven.

Luke 17:3Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, 
rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled

Matthew 24:33,34So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know 
that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This 
generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

Jesus started the conversation of today's message with word 'See to that 
no one misleads you'; the words just before today's message Jesus speaks 
of the fig tree. Just after today's message Jesus says 'Heaven and earth 
shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away'. Between these 
sentences Jesus points to many milestones including His glorious return.

To understand today's message one needs to have understanding of spirit 
life. We live because our spirit lives, even when we die naturally our 
spirit still lives. Note in today's message Jesus says 'this 
generation', He does not say Christian generation but talks of all in 
the generation that exited then.

Be it a person who believes or does not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ 
both live after they die their natural death, the only thing that varies 
is the state of their spirit. The spirit of the person who does not 
believe in the Lord Jesus Christ goes to Hell and suffers his or her 
sins (the fire is within). The spirit of the person who believes rests 
in a place called Grave. The Hebrew word Sheowl translated as grave / 
hell comes from the root word which means to borrow / ask. The actual 
Hebrew word for Hell is Geenna and occurs only 12 times in the 
scriptures; it roots from the word valley and pride.

Most Christians do not have clear understanding of the term 'eternity'. 
They know those who are saved in the Lord Jesus Christ and go to Heaven 
are given the gift to live for eternity. What they do not know is how.

Life to live eternally within oneself is only in God the Father and this 
ability He has given to His Son for the Son is part of Him. No being in 
Heaven or on earth or even in Hell has the ability to live eternally. 
All created beings have a finite spirit life and its property varies 
accord the complexity of the being. Humans are simple spirit beings like 
the Angels but are lower than the Angels. Humans like Angels have one 
spirit being, Cherubs on other hand are complex spirit beings having 
multiple spirit beings (in thousands) yet is one being therefore are 
high on hierarchy and lead the Angels. They are also called Beasts, 
Morning Star or Light Bearers (Lucifer / Satan was one among these).

We as humans can live eternally only if we enter Heaven and have access 
to the Tree of Life with its twelve Fruits. We eat of this Tree only 
when we come towards the end of spirit life that is why Adam who had 
access to the Tree yet did not eat of it, God removed his access by 
restricting him and Eve from entering Eden (Garden of Eden/Paradise is 
in Upper Heaven which they had access to before they sinned, to 
understand for this we need to study transfiguration). Jesus as man 
confirmed He overcame by His transfiguration. In Paul's letters to 
Romans and Corinth, Paul confirms we too will transfigure / be 
transformed from corrupt beings to incorruptible beings. This happens 
when the Truth is whole in us for Truth sets us free from corruption (sin).

Let us understand life and let us not think there is an exit from life, 
even if we die naturally we still continue to live. Euthanasia or 
suicide is foolishness for this life is thousand times better than the 
life behind the curtain for those who do not believe in the Lord Jesus 
Christ. It is like jumping from the pan into the fire. Also if a person 
believes in Lord Jesus Christ than would they kill themselves? If they 
do than can they say they believe?

A few days back someone was discussing with me about a person suffering 
from terminal illness. The person felt sad seeing the suffering which 
the person was going through, so commented it is better to for them to 
die than to suffer like this. I ask the person 'do you know the 
suffering that waits after death if the person does not believe in the 
Lord Jesus Christ'. So let us do our best and show mercy and keep them 
alive as much as we can.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, all living beings are created by You for You alone are Creator. 
The Son is part of You and therefore He alone has ability to live 
eternally like You. Lord You have made facility for us to live eternally 
in Heaven when we get access to the Tree of Life and eat of its twelve 
Fruits. Lord we pray we understand spirit life and thus not be misled by 
anyone...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 24:4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man 
deceive you.

Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not 
pass away.

Matthew 24:29-30

29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be 
darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall 
fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then 
shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of 
man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

Matthew 17:2And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as 
the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

John 16:33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have 
peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I 
have overcome the world.

the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and 
acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

1 Corinthians 15:52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last 
trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised 
incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Revelation 22:2In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of 
the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of 
fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree 
were for the healing of the nations.

How we do it is as important

Romans 12:8 Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let 
him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that 
sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.

If we go to a 5 star hotel and we get bad service what will be our 
reaction? Will be satisfied with what is given? Will we ignore the way 
it is given? But if we go to a street side counter and get that same 
kind of service will we complain?

Our expectation increases with the respect and esteem we hold of the 
place. Now we need to ask ourselves what is the respect or esteem we 
have for the Kingdom of God?

We as Christians dwell in the Kingdom of God and if we are of the 
Kingdom of God and someone comes to His Kingdom, how are we the citizens 
of His Kingdom to deal or serve such a person. Are we to serve like a 
street corner setup or greater than a 5 star facility? What we give is 
as important to how we give it. We need to serve the good things of His 
Kingdom and we need to do with the best of our ability and our goodness.

Jesus said you will know the tree from its fruit that means the output 
will define what the source is. What we hold gifts which are from God 
then can we serve in any unworthy manner?

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are Almighty and merciful God. You radiate the goodness that is 
in You. Lord we pray if we as your children state You are in us then let 
us too radiate You and your goodness as You do and which was manifested 
in the flesh in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen...

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 7:17-18

17Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree 
bringeth forth evil fruit.

18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree 
bring forth good fruit.

Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Fri 10 Jun 2016, 10:57 pm

Does Jesus desire us to touching Him?

Mark 3:10 For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him 
for to touch him, as many as had plagues.

Just today as I logged on to the net I read about an incident that 
happened in India where people saw water was dripping from a statue of 
Jesus crucified, they people thought it was a miracle. Later when a 
person investigated they found it was toilet water.

Between the time of people think it was a miracle to the time of 
investigation we do not know how many people filled bottles and shared 
with others especially the sick which may have drank it or even applied 
it to their bodies. They may have done it in faith but is that faith?

All miracles are not godly for we see when the Lord told Moses to throw 
his rod on the floor before the Pharaoh, Moses' rod turned into a 
serpent and when Pharaoh called his sorcerers they too threw their rods 
and their rods too turned into serpents.

In today's scripture we see that when Jesus was with the people, the 
people pressed on to touch Him and as many touched Him, they were healed 
and delivered of evil spirits, yet we see Jesus preferred to distant 
Himself and climbed into a boat so as to prevent them for touching Him.

Now ask the question why did Jesus do that? Is this not the same Jesus 
who read in Luke 4:18 that He was sent to let the blind to see, set the 
captives free, to heal the broken hearted. We also see in the chapter 
before when Jesus entered Capernaum and was preaching in a house, many 
people gathered. It is written so many people gathered that there was no 
place in the house. We do not read Jesus tried to escape from there. 
It's by understanding the priorities of Jesus we understand why Jesus 
went on to the boat to avoid the crowd in today's message.

Note when people were hearing Him Jesus did not try to flee the crowd 
but when people were only interested in healings and not in hearing Him, 
He fled the crowd.

If we want Jesus we need to give priority to hearing and abiding to Him 
Word. If we only are only going to run after miracles and blessings that 
come from Him then we may receive some of them but soon Jesus Christ 
will flee from us and be in a place where we will not be able to reach Him.

He came (was sent) primarily set the spiritually blind to see, the 
deliver those who are spiritually captive free, heal those who are 
spiritually broken and set liberty to those who are spiritually bruised.

Even the woman with an issue of blood touched Jesus we need to study the 
background to understand how she stole a healing from Him. She touched 
His hem that too in a crowd where to bend down that to a sick woman 
would be foolishness for one can be stampeded to death. She did that for 
she was not a Jew and she knew why Jews put a blue hem to their robe and 
she wanted to touch the blue hem Jesus' robe.

Let us not first seek earthly thing from the King of the Kingdom of God 
but seek first spiritual things for it is said if we seek His Kingdom 
first all our earthly needs will be added unto us.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are Spirit and your Kingdom is forever. Even though the earth 
and the whole universe belongs to You yet these are temporary. As your 
children You desire we seek You and your Kingdom first so that we have 
life eternal. You are Father and it does not please You to see your 
children lacking anything even if it is earthly and thus You fulfill 
even earthly needs, but those who seek first earthly things, can they be 
called your children? Father may we be first your children...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Exodus 7:10-12

10And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD 
had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before 
his servants, and it became a serpent.

11Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the 
magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.

12For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but 
Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods.

Luke 4:18The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me 
to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the 
brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of 
sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

Mark 2:1-4

1And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised 
that he was in the house.

2And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no 
room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached 
the word unto them.

3And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne 
of four.

4And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they 
uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they 
let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.

Matthew 9:20And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of 
blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:

Matthew 14:36And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his 
garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.

Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Thu 09 Jun 2016, 7:36 pm

You are children of light

Romans 15:4 For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written 
for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures 
might have hope.

Today's scripture tells us the Bible (it is OT that is referred to by 
Paul) has prophecies so that we have patience and hold on to our faith, 
for this Paul says we need to learn and understand the prophecies.

Today we see many people are impatient and shaken in faith looking at 
what is happening, all because they are not aware what is due next. They 
know the start and the end (that too some are confused of the end) but 
the milestones that come along the path are not known to them.

When the Lord started teaching me and leading me to write on various 
topics, even before I wrote on things like patience, heart etc. the Lord 
first got me to write on creation and about (some of) its major milestones.

It is sad that very few Churches give importance to the OT. They do not 
realize it is not possible to understand the NT without understanding 
the OT. The NT is a curtain opener to the OT and it is OT that is 
finisher of the NT. So to understand the Bible we start with reading and 
studying the NT, then go to the OT and come back to the NT to understand 
it fully.

Leaving for 2 books of the NT all books are totally dependent on the OT, 
the 2 books are partly dependent (one is prophetic while other is 
chronology). Even the book Revelation is total dependent on the OT, it 
is like an expounded summary of events from the books of Prophets put in 
a jumbled order.

One of the first traps set for Christians was the splitting of the Bible 
into OT and NT and the other was giving people the symbol of the 
crucifix so as to replace the understanding of the cross of Christ.

Let us be children of light and not children of darkness, God desires we 
know what is next so that we are not shaken in faith and are not 
impatient. He has written it in His Book and He desires we study and 
understand it.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are Almighty and Omnipresent God, nothing is hidden from You. 
As your children You want us also to be aware of things so You wrote 
then in your Book so that who has wisdom and desire to know may know and 
be strong. Lord we pray your people not fall prey to deceit and to 
vanity. We pray your people be children of light and not prey to darkness...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

John 12:36While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the 
children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide 
himself from them.

1 Thessalonians 5:4-11

4But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake 
you as a thief.

5Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are 
not of the night, nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

7For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are 
drunken in the night.

8But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of 
faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

9For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our 
Lord Jesus Christ,

10Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live 
together with him.

11Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as 
also ye do.

Dependency on the congregation

2 Corinthians 11:9 And when I was present with you, and wanted, I was 
chargeable to no man: for that which was lacking to me the brethren 
which came from Macedonia supplied: and in all things I have kept myself 
from being burdensome unto you, and so will I keep myself.

If Jesus dwelled in our time wonder what vehicle He would drive. 
According to what I know of Him other than using public transport even 
if He had a vehicle He would use a scooter which gave good millage and 
quick to move around in the city. And even if someone gave Him a 4 wheel 
drive He would give to one of His greedy disciples like Judas to use and 
take only when He really needed it.

Last Saturday I was at an opening of a Church and the preacher sharing 
the Word truly said in the start the Pastor of the Church is very humble 
and growth of the Pastor is propositional to the growth of the size of 
the congregation.

If we read Malachi 3:10 it clearly says 'bring you all the tithes into 
the storehouse that there may be meat in the house'. It does not say 
meat for the Pastor, his family, the leaders etc. Tithes are supposed to 
be used for the spiritual building of the congregation. Yes the Pastor 
is allowed to take a share of the tithe and Paul says he has right to 
take a share but did not since he did not want to get paid for his 
service in earthly riches.

There are some main stream Churches in Mumbai which pay corporate like 
salaries to its Pastors. One Evangelist boasted from the podium a 6 
digit salary he paid his Pastors and his preaching was more about giving.

Today's message we see Paul who was a business man making and selling 
tents and taking care of not only his own expenses but also the expenses 
of his colleagues, he was experiencing a bad time and was in need. Even 
though he was in need he did not ask the congregation he set up in 
Corinth which was a rich metropolis city. Paul confirms the Lord met his 
needs by a brother from Macedonia.

Pastors today speak of trusting God but their eyes are on the pockets of 
their congregation. The people who give more are given more importance 
in the Church. If these people do spiritual blunders you will find the 
Pastor would rarely dare to correct the person unless the whole 
congregation stands up against the Pastor.

There are famous Preachers who first take a share of the collection of 
the any event and then leave the people who organized the event to pay 
the bills with what remains. Many a times the organizers have had to 
sell their belongings even their house to pay the bills. The organizers 
think God will be pleased with what they did but God sees it as foolishness.

Let us be wise and let us work according to the way the Lord has set to 
run His house. It is His sheep not our sheep so let His will be done.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are the Good shepherd who gave His life for His sheep. Lord we 
pray as shepherds we too learn to give more than to take or ask a value 
for what we give. Lord we pray your house runs like You have set it to 
run. We pray your shepherds overcome the worm Greed which destroys Fruits...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Malachi 3:10Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may 
be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of 
hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a 
blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

1 Corinthians 9:3-15

3My defence to them that examine me is this.

4Have we no right to eat and to drink?

5Have we no right to lead about a wife that is a believer, even as the 
rest of the apostles, and the brethren of the Lord, and Cephas?

6Or I only and Barnabas, have we not a right to forbear working?

7What soldier ever serveth at his own charges? who planteth a vineyard, 
and eateth not the fruit thereof? Or who feedeth a flock, and eateth not 
of the milk of the flock?

8Do I speak these things after the manner of men? or saith not the law 
also the same?

9For it is written in the law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox 
when he treadeth out the corn. Is it for the oxen that God careth,

10or saith he it assuredly for our sake? Yea, for our sake it was 
written: because he that ploweth ought to plow in hope, and he that 
thresheth, to thresh in hope of partaking.

11If we sowed unto you spiritual things, is it a great matter if we 
shall reap your carnal things?

12If others partake of this right over you, do not we yet more? 
Nevertheless we did not use this right; but we bear all things, that we 
may cause no hindrance to the gospel of Christ.

13Know ye not that they that minister about sacred things eat of the 
things of the temple, and they that wait upon the altar have their 
portion with the altar?

14Even so did the Lord ordain that they that proclaim the gospel should 
live of the gospel.

15 But I have used none of these things: and I write not these things 
that it may be so done in my case; for it were good for me rather to 
die, than that any man should make my glorifying void.

Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Why is God hiding Himself?

Mark 3:11, 12 And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before 
him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God. And he straitly charged 
them that they should not make him known.

Bible says not only the Angels know God but even the fallen angels (evil 
spirits) know God and tremble, man on the other hand is told again and 
again ‘know your Lord your God’.

The term sinner was first used for man even though the fallen angels 
were evil, they were not called sinners, it was only after the floods of 
Noah that the fallen angels were called devils (demons, goats), Satan 
(plural and means adversaries). We see Angels are called Sons of God and 
even fallen angels were referred by that term just before the floods.

Fallen angels / evil spirits know more of God than man does and we see 
Jesus forbid the unclean / evil spirits to make Him known. When they saw 
Him it is written they fell down and cried saying ‘Thou are Son of God’. 
If one reads the Greek text the text uses the Greek word ‘tov’ which 
means ‘the’ and usual the Greek ‘ho’ is not there. The term Sons of God 
for man is used only once in Romans 8:14 and that too it unlike ‘Son The 
God’ used for Jesus, here it is written ‘Sons god’ without ‘tov’ / 
‘the’. Yes in Greek grammar one can put the word ‘of’ due to the 
rendering of the words in the sentence. Everywhere leaving for Romans 
8:14 scriptures related to man it is the words ‘children of God’ that is 
translated as ‘Sons of God’ in many English Translations i.e. John 1:12. 
What I want to highlight is the difference in the term ‘Son of God’ used 
for Jesus and for man or Angels. It is only by the understanding of this 
we will understand why Jesus as man never glorified Himself, He said 
only in the end when He returns to the Father will He be glorified.

Till date people are trying to understand God and the relationship 
between the Father, Son and Spirit and they have partly managed to know 
Him. The orthodox theological definition of Trinity is not wrong but 
also it does not fully comprehend the understanding of God, it does not 
touch even 25% of who God is.

It is only in the end when the Truth is whole in us and man has 
overcome, will man know God fully. There are so many questions about God 
which are unanswered even today and the main reason is man has not 
understood the simple term ‘Spirit’ which means ‘life’. So to be Son of 
God like said in Romans 8:14, we need to have the Life of God in us, 
that does not means life that comes from God, for all living things 
including fallen angels also got their life from God, it means a life 
that manifests God.

Lord humbled Himself and become man Jesus to show us what we need to 
become. It is only when we become like Jesus will we know God and know 
who Lord Jesus Christ really is and for this Jesus gave us His Spirit. 
It is the Spirit of God / Spirit of Truth who will lead us to all Truth 
and let us know the Lord Jesus Christ since the Lord has forbidden the 
Angels or fallen angels to make Him be known.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You alone are God and the Bible says there is only One God. Father 
Lord You are Holy and as John 1:18 says no being has seen You leaving 
for the Son. Lord we pray we overcome this corruption and know You 
through your Word and by your Spirit and not through the wisdom of man. 
Lord we pray for more and more revelation of You to your people. We pray 
for windows of Heaven be opened via your Spirit and man may see and know 
You more...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the 
sons of God. (Rom 8:14 KJV)

Mark 1:1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; 
(Mar 1:1 KJV)

1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth 
from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that 
he might destroy the works of the devil. (1Jo 3:8 KJV)

Romans 1:4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to 
the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: (Rom 1:4 KJV)

John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become 
the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: (KJV)

John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to 
become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, (NAS)

John 1:12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his 
name, he gave the right to become children of God (NIV)

Being saved by the Gospel

1 Corinthians 15:1, 2 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel 
which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye 
stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached 
unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

People think if they believe in the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ they 
are forever saved.

It is true that a person is saved when that person believes in the 
Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, but it is not so simple that today I 
believe and forever I am saved. If I die after some years it is not 
necessary I will be saved. Paul uses the words 'stand in it' that means 
at the time of death I still need to believe in the Gospel of the Lord 
Jesus Christ. Paul says in his last words 'unless ye have believed in 
vain' which means we can and have the option of rejecting the Gospel and 
thus rejecting being saved.

So one does not become a Christian due to faith exercised a day of their 
life. To be a Christ one need to keep exercising ones' faith in the 
salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ. One needs to be an everyday 
Christian to be a Christian until one sleeps in the Lord.

One thing that the Lord suggested in the Bible is to keep the first 
Manna which means the day we were saved in the Lord that day should 
always be fresh in our minds. We should always remember what we were and 
how the Lord saved us by revealing Himself to us.

The Lord is telling us not to take our faith very likely, unless we keep 
exercising our faith it will not be strong and not sustain through our 
journey in this life time. So let us make sure we daily spend time 
building our faith, feeding it with testimonies and the Word. People who 
have preached the Gospel to lost souls should also keep track of them 
and follow up to make sure the harvest is kept safe in Him.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we pray we do not take our salvation for granted. We pray that your 
people realize they need to build their faith regularly so that they do 
not fall and reject the Gospel. We pray they realize that a person does 
not become a Christian due to one day but starts becoming a Christian 
one day and need to remain Christian from that day until the day they 
sleep in You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Mark 16:16He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that 
believeth not shall be damned.

Matthew 24:13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Sat 04 Jun 2016, 10:50 am

Baptism of Repentance

Luke 3:3 And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the 
baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;

When the word 'repentance' is spoken the first thing that comes to mind 
of most is to be sorry. People think repentance is all about grieving, 
being sad, being sorrowful, but what the Bible says as repentance is 
beyond that. One can repent without shedding a tear.

The Greek language is very rich and it holds the true meaning in its 
rendering of the word. The word translated as repentance is metanoia / 
metanoeo (I repent). This word is a compound word and is made of 2 words 
'meta' which means after or with, the other word is 'noieo' which means 
understanding. So the word translated as repentance actually means 
'after understanding'.

Man sinned [erred] because of lack of understanding due to which man 
lost the Fruit of Truth. Jesus said we will be set free (from sin) only 
when we follow Him and will know the truth. When we follow Jesus (that 
means live our lives as He asks us to) we start to understand and know 
the truth and it is then we will be set free from the bonds of sin.

Paul renders the word sin in a very perfect way in his epistles to the 
Romans and Corinthians, he uses the word corruption. Sin does nothing 
other than corrupt and deforms our spirit. Nothing corrupt can exist 
before God and all life comes from God, therefore sin does not allow us 
dwell in the presence of God and thus sin leads us to death (second 
death that is of the spirit).

Jesus did not come to fight sin. He did pay the penalty of our sins by 
which He made peace between man and God so that man receives the Spirit 
of Truth and by receiving the Spirit of Truth we may have the right 
understanding and know the Truth again (receive the Fruit of Truth which 
we lost when Adam and Eve sinned). It is only when truth exists in us 
(in whole) that sin and death has no hold, effect, consequence on us.

True repentance is not about being sorry but is about correcting oneself 
and coming on the right path or doing what is right. We can cry and sob 
all day but we will only fool ourselves not God. God does not desire we 
cry but desires we stop existing in darkness. He desires we dwell in 
light, the light of truth. He desires we be whole. We can cry for 
hurting God and for being far from Him, but only correction would call 
it repentance.

If one truly understands baptism of repentance, one would know it 
requires us to be baptized in Christ and be baptized in the Holy Spirit.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are Righteous and Holy God. You are Light and no darkness can 
dwell before You. Lord nothing corrupt can exist before You, You did not 
throw us out of Heaven for You hated us but did so to give us another 
chance to overcome corruption. You paid the price for our sins so as to 
make peace between You and us and by this we receive your Spirit. It is 
your Spirit that leads us to become whole. Lord we pray your people 
repent and be whole...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Romans 8:21Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the 
bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

1 Corinthians 15:42-44, 50-55

42So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it 
is raised in incorruption:

43It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in 
weakness; it is raised in power:

44It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a 
natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

50Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the 
kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all 
be changed,

52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the 
trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we 
shall be changed.

53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must 
put on immortality.

54So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this 
mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the 
saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

55O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

God hates the intellectual

Matthew 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for 
ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in 
yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

If you read the 7 woes in Matthew 23 or even those in the other Gospels, 
Jesus names first the scribes and then names the Pharisees. More than 
the religious people, God hates the intellectual people.

God is a Being full of wisdom, His wisdom is immeasurable, it is 
incomprehensible. You may wonder if God is full of wisdom then how He 
can hate the intellectual. Per say God does not hate intelligence. He 
gives us, those who believe in His Son His Spirit of Truth Who leads us 
to all understanding, so not true Christian would be a person lacking 
wisdom. But the Lord does not give His Spirit to those who think they 
know (all who are baptize in Jesus Christ receive the promise of the 
Holy Spirit and as they surrender to the Holy Spirit then starts their 
journey of baptism in the Holy Spirit).

When I came into the Lord I was an intellectual person so the Lord 
needed to deal with my intelligence first. I would try to scientifically 
explain miracles, the existence of God and creation even though I was a 
Christian (was a Catholic then, to be specific). Then one day as I was 
praying for a very old person (70years above) suffering of cancer of the 
backbone, that too in his last stage where doctors gave up on him and 
even stopped his medicine (he was on painkillers and was taking morphine 
which made him a drug addict; they had already replaced some segments of 
his spinal column with those made of steel). This man was a Muslim, whom 
I had not met, it was the love and tears of his daughter and 
daughter-in-law that touched my heart and caused me to pray for him. He 
was about 1500kms from where I was praying. No one told him I was 
praying for him and as I was praying for him, this man instantly gets 
healed and starts doing all his personal work. The next day this bed 
ridden man goes to the bank and to the market. The first time I met him 
/saw him was a few days later to his healing as he was getting off a 
boat, coming from a picnic, that too from a place which had lots of 
steps to climb. God challenged me to explain this scientifically.

Today we see many intellectual people bringing people to Churches but 
not letting them know God. They themselves do not know God so do not 
allow others to know God. In the name of God they become a hurdle for 
those who seek God. The reason is their wisdom is wisdom of the world 
and not of God and since it is not of God it does not built people in 
the Lord but makes them feel they know God.

The Word of God is not just words and anyone who claims to know God 
should be a man who also manifests His Word. If Jesus just spoke and did 
not do what He did then would people follow Him?

As one is baptized more and more in the Holy Spirit one receives more of 
His gifts. True knowledge comes only from the Holy Spirit and so if 
knowledge and gifts do not show together then we need to question this 
knowledge. The proportion may vary but absence of either one should be a 
warning for us. That also means a person doing healing, deliverance, 
praying in tongues, prophesying etc. but having no understanding or does 
not grow in understanding of the Word of God is also dangerous.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord the Church is filled with people who have learned from others and 
very few are there who learn from You. Lord Jesus You said the one I 
send (Holy Spirit - the Spirit of Truth) will lead us to all 
understanding bring us to know You and all what You spoke (Your Word). 
We pray Lord that your people are not filled with yeast; that they do 
not depend more on the knowledge that comes from man but on the 
knowledge that comes from God...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

John 4:25-26

25The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called 
Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.

26Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

John 14:26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father 
will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all 
things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 16:13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide 
you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he 
shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

At the sound of the trumpet

Matthew 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a 
trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, 
from one end of heaven to the other.

This topic of the Lord second coming is the most talked about topic but 
the least studied topic. If you want to hear the weirdest of 
understandings then discuss this topic. This is not only the case with 
the general Christian Believers but also of the so called learned 
theologians. There are very few who studied it and they are the ones who 
do not look up waiting for the appearance of Christ nor do they scream 
on roof tops that end is at hand. No doubt each one needs to prepare for 
the end today for if we sleep in Christ today, we will rise only when He 
comes again.

All the Feasts of the Old Testament are connected to Christ and everyone 
has been fulfilled leaving to one major feast which is the Feast of 
Trumpets. The Feast of Trumpets (Jewish feast of Rosh Hashana) 
comesbefore the Feast of Tents / Tabernacle which is concerning Christ's 
birth as man (tent). The Feast of Trumpets is concerning the second 
coming of Christ. The Lord fulfilled every feast at its time so the 
feast of Trumpets will also be fulfilled at its times. That means when 
Christ comes He will come only at the Feast of Trumpets and not on any 
other day. Not only is the Lord's second coming 'day of the year' given, 
but even the time around when it will happen is given. These clues are 
found in the books of Moses and also of the Prophets. Daniel was 
meditating on this and the Lord spoke to him in plain language saying 
'time and time and a half' these things will be fulfilled (this was 
conformed again in other scriptures). The word 'time' speaks of a period 
of time which here is 1000years (this also can be confirmed via other 
scriptures). Thus the end would be about 2500years.

You would say bro if the day of the year and the period are given then 
how is it that Jesus said the day and hour is not known to anyone not 
even the Angels in Heaven other than the Father.

Note Jesus used the term day and hour and not just day. In the Bible day 
means season and wherever hour is given it speaks of exact time. In the 
Bible even if you get into Bible codes the exact date is not revealed. 
We know the day when He will come which is somewhere in October but 
which year is not known for 2500 is not 2500AD. Even today the exact 
year in which Jesus was born is still contested. We also do not know if 
the period started from the birth of Christ or from its day of 
revelation. So if one goes by approximates we are talking of 483 years 
(173,880 days) between Daniel and Christ (this we know from the exact 
day revealed of the birth of Christ - Daniel 9:24-25 which is calculated 
as 483 years @360days/year and was fulfilled).

Jesus as man was 100percent man and as man all He knew was revealed 
through the scriptures and the Spirit of God. So if the Lord has not 
revealed in scriptures then no man will know, including God the Son who 
humbled Himself and became man.

Let us not be children of darkness but of light for we know the season 
[day] if not the hour also. Let us not be foolish people who wear winter 
clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter. We are in the season of 
harvest so let us concentrate on the harvest instead of look up in the 
sky for the second coming of Christ.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord Jesus when You were asked about the end although You said You do 
not know the day and hour yet You gave lots of signs that lead us to the 
end. You knew the timeline of events that lead us to the end. You spoke 
of great tribulation but yet said the end will not come for You knew the 
end would be sudden for most will be spiritual asleep. As Paul said they 
will speak of (false) peace and suddenly the end would come. Lord we 
pray we remain awake so that end does not come as a thief nor be like 
the people outside the ark of Noah but be like the people inside the ark 
who were ready for the floods...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Numbers 29:1-6 [Feast of Trumpets – Rosh Hashana]

1And in the seventh month, on the first day of the month, ye shall have 
an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work: it is a day of blowing 
the trumpets unto you.

2And ye shall offer a burnt offering for a sweet savour unto the LORD; 
one young bullock, one ram, and seven lambs of the first year without 
blemish:

3And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil, three tenth 
deals for a bullock, and two tenth deals for a ram,

4And one tenth deal for one lamb, throughout the seven lambs:

5And one kid of the goats for a sin offering, to make an atonement for you:

6Beside the burnt offering of the month, and his meat offering, and the 
daily burnt offering, and his meat offering, and their drink offerings, 
according unto their manner, for a sweet savour, a sacrifice made by 
fire unto the LORD.

Numbers 29:7-11 [Feast of Atonement - Yom Kippur]

7And ye shall have on the tenth day of this seventh month an holy 
convocation; and ye shall afflict your souls: ye shall not do any work 
therein:

8But ye shall offer a burnt offering unto the LORD for a sweet savour; 
one young bullock, one ram, and seven lambs of the first year; they 
shall be unto you without blemish:

9And their meat offering shall be of flour mingled with oil, three tenth 
deals to a bullock, and two tenth deals to one ram,

10A several tenth deal for one lamb, throughout the seven lambs:

11One kid of the goats for a sin offering; beside the sin offering of 
atonement, and the continual burnt offering, and the meat offering of 
it, and their drink offerings.

Matthew 24:36But of that day and hour knoweth, no, not the angels of 
heaven, but my Father only.

The Prophecy ... Book of Daniel 9:24-25 (written around 500 BC - exact 
date of revelation is unknown)

"He (Messiah ... the King)

will be revealed

7 weeks + 62 weeks ( = 69 weeks of years)

AFTER the commandment to rebuild Jerusalem

and its walls,

THEN He (Messiah)

will be CUT-OFF (executed!)

but NOT for Himself." (He willingly died on the Cross as the 
sacrificial "Lamb of God".)

(Daniel 9:24-25)

This is a mathematical prophecy . . .

- A week of years (shabua or shabu'im) = 7 years

- "Cut-off". . . the Hebrew word used was karath, literally 
means "executed!"

- The "70th Week" (the last 7 years) of this prophecy is yet future 
... the "Apocalypse."

The Bible uses 360 day years for prophecies and expects us to add the 
appropriate 'leap months' on schedule. So, the easiest way to unravel 
this prophecy is to first convert this prophecy into days...

1. Add 7 + 62 weeks of years = 69 weeks of years in this prophecy

2. Multiply 69 (weeks) x 7 (to get the total number of years in this 
prophecy) = 483 years

3. Multiply 483 years x 360 (to get the total number of days in this 
prophecy) = 173,880 days

Oneness

John 17:22, 23 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; 
that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou in me, 
that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that 
thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

This topic of oneness of God is a very essential topic and causes people 
to define a Christian as a heretic or main stream Christian if the 
general belief is not followed. The general belief is term as Trinity - 
three beings yet one. There is no denying the existence of 3 beings and 
there is no denying their oneness and any Christian who does not believe 
this is not a Christian. Now the problem comes when we ask Christians to 
explain the oneness.

The term Trinity is taken from pagan beliefs and is not a term from the 
Bible. The Bible more appropriate uses the term Godhead, this term talks 
of actual one yet more not more having common attributes.

The problem is this oneness terminology is explained by intellectual 
people and not spiritual people. The intellectual people with limited 
wisdom think 2 dimensional placing the 3 side by side and linking the 
three. That is why many among them think Heaven is physically up or some 
place in space.

Let us not limit God in our limited worldly understanding. To the 
Trinity theologians I ask about today’s scriptures where we become one 
with God after we are redeemed and married to Him in Heaven (Heavenly 
marriage is about becoming one and not like earthly marriage). Jesus 
said (from OT) ‘if He has called you gods unto whom the word of God 
came, and the scripture cannot be broken’. This confirms our oneness 
with Him in Heaven. No doubt we will not be equal to the Son but surely 
we will be like Him and be as integrated or part of the Father as He is.

When I started asking God to explain His oneness He led me to think 
concentric instead of in planar fashion (side by side in a plane 
surface). It is our worldly limited intelligence that tells us if there 
are two they have to be side by side and can not one within another, for 
we think everything exist in the flesh.

God is not of flesh He is Spirit, even the Son is Spirit and the Holy 
Spirit is Spirit. In Heaven we too will be spirit being like the Angels. 
Do not even dream of looking like what we look here (our beauty will be 
the beauty of our soul / inner-man and not the flesh). If we in Heaven 
will be part of the Father then think He who is called Holy day and 
night in Heaven would He allow any thing that is not holy to be part of Him?

We surely cannot achieve holiness like that of God for Holiness will be 
gifted by the Father like Righteousness and Truth is gifted to us by the 
Son and Spirit respectively. But if we do not pursue them can we get 
them. If I do not believe the Son and pursue His nature will I receive 
His Righteousness? If I do not pursue the Truth through the Word of God 
would the Spirit bring us to its understanding?

Can we be termed as part of His Family if we do not have anything common 
with Him and if not part of His Family then can we be even dream to be 
part of Him?

Holiness is mistakenly equaled to purity. Let us understand Holiness and 
if we want to go to Heaven then there is no option other than pursuing 
Holiness and becoming one like God is one.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, your Word says there is only one God and yet speaks of the Father, 
Son and Spirit. We pray Lord your people hear and understand this 
relation through the Word and not through the pagan beliefs that have 
penetrated the Church. We pray they understand the Godhead and the 
Heavenly Marriage that awaits us in Heaven. We pray they may also 
understand nothing can exist without the Heavenly Temple after Judgment 
Day...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

John 10:35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and 
the scripture cannot be broken;

1 Corinthians 8:5-6

5For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in 
earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,)

6But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and 
we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

Ephesians 4:4-6

4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of 
your calling;

5One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

6One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in 
you all.

Revelation 21:22-24

22And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb 
are the temple of it.

23And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in 
it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

24And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: 
and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

Do not chase a shadow

Psalms 37:9 [NASB] For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait 
upon the LORD, they shall inherit the land.

I normally quote the KJV but today I quoted the NASB since it translated 
the Hebrew word 'erets' as land. This word occurs 2504 times in the 
Bible and in KJV 1543 times it is translated as land and only 712 times 
it is translated as earth.

Today's scripture talks of those who do evil will perish and not exist, 
it goes on to say those who trust in the Lord will inherit the land. 
Does this scripture talk of property or does it talk of some specific 
'land'.

In the Gospels the word Israel occurs 30 times and in all the 4 Gospels 
Jesus spoke it 9 times (including the repeating of the event across the 
4 Gospels). In these 9 times Jesus more used the term 'sheep of Israel' 
not referring to the animals but referring to it symbolic, not just the 
sheep but also the term Israel. He also does the same with 'sheep of the 
house of Israel', not mentioning to any structure as house or any 
specific earthly family. Paul says we from different parts of the world 
are sons and daughters of Abraham by our faith in Jesus Christ, 
therefore inheritors of His promise (land).

We see most Christians have their eyes fixed to Israel and the Jews. 
Many mega Church Pastors even place the flag of Israel on their tables 
in their offices. The Jews have a blue star as their flag, they call it 
the symbol 'Star of David' but they do not know who the actual Star of 
David is and have rejected the Star but put His symbol as their national 
symbol. It is like stoning a person to death but roaming with his 
picture saying you love him and adore him very much.

The Believer Church has come from the Catholic Church. Are Catholics 
Christians? No, even though they claim to be, even though they hold the 
same book and even though they take the same names.

A Catholic follows a Jesus Christ who is incompetent and needs the help 
of His mother to help us. They believe in a God who is incompetent and 
needs help of man to get the job done. They believe in the Spirit of God 
who is incompetent and needs man to intercede to get the job done. They 
believe in the Bible but not all of it. They believe in Kingdom of God 
but not as written in the Word of God. Their Jesus is as much the Jesus 
of the Bible as Isa of the Quran is. Even their principle deity Mary is 
not Mary the mother of Jesus of the Bible. So if they say they believe 
in Jesus one need to ask them which Jesus? When they say they believe in 
the Word of God one needs to ask them which Word of God? If they say 
they 'honor' Mary one needs to ask them which Mary?

In 15th century AD a few people led by Martin Luther (he gave it a push) 
broke away from the Catholic Church since they realized the Church was 
not following the Word of God. They were called Protestants since they 
protested from the main congregation. Jesus was the greatest Protestant 
of the Jewish Church (which claims to be founded by Abraham). His 
followers were initially called 'Disciples of Jesus Christ', later they 
were 'People of The Way' and later were mockingly referred to 
'Christians' which means little Christs and the last name got stuck. Can 
we say Christians are Jews?

Christians are as much part of the Jewish Church as Believer is of the 
Catholic Church. We have common history but no common ideology or 
theology. Jews refer to the Commandments given in the Torah as Law of 
Moses and we refer it to as Law of the Lord given through Moses. Even 
though the matter may be same but how it is approached is different.

Abraham was promised a land and in many scriptures we see the Lord says 
the land He gave or promised to give to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their 
descendants but in reality none got it right until today. Even during 
the time of David becoming king and having power of cast out the rulers 
of the land marked as Promised Land yet David did not attempt to claim 
it, he in fact had a treaty with the kings of those lands and let them 
rule it.

David was Man of God according to the heart of God; did he fail to 
understand the Promise? Jesus said Abraham saw Him and was pleased. 
Abraham did not sleep on his death in sadness but will gladness for he 
knew what the Lord promised.

This earth and all natural things in it will perish when the Lord 
returns. Understand the world is round and Bible says when He returns 
all living beings (humans) will see Him coming on a cloud. Let me tell 
you the cloud is not a real cloud but symbolizes glory and no point 
anywhere is visible from every part of the globe (even stars are not). 
Man can see not beyond the horizon and the horizon is approximate 30kms.

Heaven is not physically up for the earth is round. When Islam is 
questioned about the position of Paradise, before it was just up since 
for them then the world was flat now that they realized the world is 
round, they have started saying Paradise is located above Mecca and if 
it falls it will fall over Mecca.

Let us not be a foolish lot fighting or believing in some land as 
Promised Land. Let us not chase a shadow or a dog that chases its tail, 
they may catch it but we will not. Let us pursue the real Promised Land 
which is Heaven and the Lord is saying if we wait upon Him we will 
receive our promise.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are Almighty God and Omnipotent God. There is nothing that is 
impossible to You and your hand is not short that what You spoke You are 
unable to bring to past. Lord we pray your people do not chase shadows 
and believe in worldly things. Let them be focused on the greater things 
of your Kingdom, things that do not perish and do not fade away...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Genesis 35:12And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will 
give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.

Exodus 6:8And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I 
did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give 
it you for an heritage: I am the LORD.

John 8:56Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and 
was glad.

Luke 21:27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with 
power and great glory.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the 
voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in 
Christ shall rise first:

17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with 
them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be 
with the Lord.

The unprofitable people

Romans 3:12,13They are all gone out of the way, they are together become 
unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat 
is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the 
poison of asps is under their lips:

Yesterday we were given a message on how the people are immersed in 
distorting of the truth, we were also told as to why this is happening.

In today's message the Lord is continuing on this topic and has given us 
today's scriptures which are quoted by Paul from the books of Psalms and 
Isaiah. Through it the Lord talks to us of how even though Preachers / 
Evangelist are doing things yet they are unprofitable [the actual 
meaning is useless]. The Lord is saying all the activities they do are 
in no way benefiting His people.

The Lord associates three characteristics to the preachers: - their 
mouths are like open sepulchure, their tongues use deceit and lips 
poison of asps.

Sepulchure or grave (as per today) does not kill people but is a place 
where dead people are kept [gathering of dead people].

Satan is equated to a serpent not because snakes are evil. In the Bible 
snake symbolizes 2 things one is deceit (because it moves in a zigzag 
manner) and other is cursed (because it crawls on its belly). Satan is 
the father of deceit therefore shown as a snake, but at the same time 
even Jesus Christ hung on the crucifix was represented as a bronze snake 
on a pole for He became a cursed for us so that who-so-ever lifts his 
eyes unto Him is saved. In today's message the Lord is equating the 
tongues of Preachers to a snake (deceit) because even though they speak 
'good' they do not mean it. Many Preachers perform on stage like an 
actor does his profession.

The poison of a wasp does not kill but immobilizes its prey. The wasp 
then carried this living dead being to its nest and lays eggs in it so 
that when its eggs hatch its little ones will have food. It may sound 
harsh but today many Churches are family businesses which are inherited.

Evangelism has become a social media like Facebook where people need to 
post some activity to be in the social circle. Everything they do they 
use it to gain mileage and fame. Go to evangelical programs and you will 
find mostly the same people attending it again and again and their 
spiritual level is almost same level throughout years.

Jesus mostly worked outside the city limits even though His fame was 
spread throughout the land. He never worked to glorify Himself; all He 
did was to glorify the Father, He waited on the Father to glorify Him in 
His due time.

Today's message may be harsh but let us take it as a correction and 
change our ways. Let us work for the Kingdom of God and not for kingdom 
of man. Let the expansion of the Kingdom of God be not at fraction 
percentage but be in multiplications and this will happen only when we 
selflessly work for His Kingdom.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, we dwell is a time where we see a lot of Christian programs 
happening but where Christ is absent. They are healings and miracles 
happening but hearts are not changing. People are getting converted not 
none are becoming disciples. The pace at which expansion of the Kingdom 
is happening we would need thousands of years more but such is not 
available for the end is written. Lord we pray change happens among the 
leaders so that things quicken. Let them realize if they do not then as 
your Word says You can created people for yourself from stones...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Psalms 14:1-4

1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, 
they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

2The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if 
there were any that did understand, and seek God.

3They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is 
none that doeth good, no, not one.

4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as 
they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.

Isaiah 8:20-22

20To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this 
word, it is because there is no light in them.

21And they shall pass through it, hardly bestead and hungry: and it 
shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret 
themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look upward.

22And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, 
dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.

Psalms 53:2-4

2God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there 
were any that did understand, that did seek God.

3Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; 
there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

4Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they 
eat bread: they have not called upon God.

Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Mon 23 May 2016, 11:25 pm

Before whom do you minister?

Ezekiel 44:12 Because they ministered unto them before their idols, and 
caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity; therefore have I 
lifted up mine hand against them, saith the Lord GOD, and they shall 
bear their iniquity.

Today's scripture the word 'they' does not talk about people who do not 
know God but speaks of people who know God and minister to others in His 
name. Today's scripture says these people minister in the name of the 
Lord but they minister not before God but before their idols, because 
they minister not before God but before their idols, they have caused 
the people of God to fall into iniquity and because they have caused 
people to fall into iniquity, the Lord says His hand will be against 
them and they will bear their iniquity.

At literature level this scripture comes out quite clear. We can go 
further and get into the commentary by studying the historical 
background of this verse and we will know about idolatry the Israelites 
did right inside the Temple they build in the name of Jehovah. All this 
will be good knowledge but that will not change a person from inside, 
for they do not relate directly to us today.

The Word of God is eternal and talks to us in all our situations. It was 
sent for the salvation of mankind and until Judgment Day and the return 
of man to God, the Word of God will not return to the Father.

We know preachers (including Pastors) preach about God but as today's 
scripture says most of them do not preach before God but preach before 
their idols. Their idols could be themselves, or their seniors, or the 
worldly wise men in the congregation, or the purpose of holding people, 
or the purpose of finance etc. The Lord is saying because they do not 
preach before Him these preachers cause iniquity to come on the people 
and thus cause the hand of God to be against the people. Note this is 
not the only reason people (Christians) face problems but is one of the 
reasons. The Lord is alerting us that the person who should be 
instrument in leading people out of problems could be the cause of their 
problems.

When one goes into word (Hebrew and Greek word) study, one touches a 
deeper dimension of the scripture. The Hebrew word for idol comes from a 
verb which means to roll, the Hebrew word translated as iniquity comes 
from the word distortion.

Idol worship (may be an object, image or even people or desires) causes 
people not to grow or move ahead even though they are in motion. It 
causes people to go in circles and be in the same spiritual state. If we 
look at the spiritual growth of the Church, we will know how deep it is 
in idol worship and then it would be easy to find its various idols. It 
is because of the idolatry of the Church that we have so much distorted 
understanding of scriptures. Today's scripture says the Lord's hand is 
against His people and thus has caused them to be immersed in their 
distorted understanding.

Today the Lord says the only way out for the Church is the preachers 
should realize they are preaching not only in the name of the Lord but 
also in the presence of the Lord. The day preachers preach in the 
presence of the Lord the Church will be on fire for God and the Kingdom 
of God will expand.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord the Church grew in understanding in the early day, the days of the 
Apostles, after that the Church has been growing at snail speed. It has 
converted people but has not made many Christians. Many think all that 
needs to be known about the Word is already known therefore they do not 
need the Spirit or sought Him to reveal more and more of the Word. Holy 
Spirit, You are the Spirit of the Son, the Spirit of Truth and the Rock 
on which the Church is built. We pray Holy Spirit that the preachers 
depend more and more on You then on men, and when they preach they 
experience your presence...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

John 14:26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father 
will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all 
things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Matthew 12:18Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom 
my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall 
shew judgment [separation] to the Gentiles.

Acts 2:16-21

16But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

17And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out 
of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall 
prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall 
dream dreams:

18And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days 
of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

19And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth 
beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before 
that great and notable day of the Lord come:

21And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of 
the Lord shall be saved.

Galatians 4:6And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of 
his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

Are you ready for her fall?
Jeremiah 51:64And thou shalt say, Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not 
rise from the evil that I will bring upon her: and they shall be weary. 
Thus far are the words of Jeremiah.

A Christian writer Robert Shank wrote 'men are to oscillate between two 
contradictory persuasions like a pendulum and are not to view the whole 
testimony of the Scriptures with complete sincerity at one time, but are 
to be one day sincerely persuaded that the Bible warns us against 
apostasy, and another day sincerely persuaded that the Bible assures us 
that apostasy is impossible.'

In his book 'Life in the Son' Robert Shank wrote 'spiritual death is the 
inevitable consequence of habitual sinning as a deliberate pattern of 
behavior', 'men are not immediately deprived of grace by a single act of 
sin'.

A few days back a sister stated she feared blaspheming the Holy Spirit 
but she was not clear what blaspheming really was? I told her grieving 
the Holy Spirit and blaspheming the Holy Spirit was an unforgivable sin. 
She was taken back if grieving and blasphemy was same. Blasphemy of the 
Holy Spirit is mocking the Holy Spirit and one does that to hurt or 
grieve the Holy Spirit. The first leads to the second since the 
consequence is same. One should also note we can do the second without 
doing the first that is by actions we can grieve the Holy Spirit without 
saying words.

This is generally true that one can lose the grace of by one's 
consistent sinning. Paul asks if we take the sacrifice of Christ for 
granted then is there any other way for our salvation.

Many people think when they mock God and when God does not take action 
against them that God is okay with their mocking. In the book of Daniel 
the Lord speaks of the little horn that came from the seven horns and 
which blasphemies God and mocks Him. If one studies history of Europe 
one would know of 7 kingdoms from which came the Vatican which is both a 
kingdom and also a religious body. This church has been mocking God from 
its start that is 300AD and since God did not really pour His wrath on 
her she has been thinking nothing will happen to her and that she has 
the certification of God. She does not know her end and her plagues are 
already written. This Church has replaced the place of the Holy Spirit 
with a woman whom the Church calls Mother Mary, using this woman they 
mock the Spirit of God.

God is telling us her time of punishment is at hand and like the book of 
Revelation states her people will flee from her and forsake her. God is 
asking us are we ready to save them which flee her?

Today the number of Catholics in the world is nearly 1 billion strong. 
While the numbers of Believers (Protestants as called by Catholics) is 
put at 800 million, this includes Churches we do not really consider as 
Christians.

Today is the time we should think of building larger halls, set greater 
plans and greater missions to reach out to the lost especially among the 
Catholics.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, many souls were martyred by this little horn which mocks You. She 
has manipulated your Laws and made your people to do idolatry in your 
name. She has caused many to be misled and lose their salvation by her 
deceit. Lord we know the prayers of those who were martyred will be 
heard and the time is at hand. We pray Lord your people be sensitive to 
this time and reach out to those within little horn and save them...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
Daniel 7:8I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them 
another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns 
plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the 
eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

Daniel 8:9-12
9And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding 
great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.

10And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some 
of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.

11Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him 
the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was 
cast down.

12And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of 
transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it 
practised, and prospered.

Go, baptize and teach in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit


Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in 
the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit:


In IT service industry everyone in a company is not excellent in their 
knowledge and understanding of operations so to have consistency in 
service levels we have what is known as SOP (Standard Operation 
Procedure), where a process is document as to how it is to be executed 
with its steps. People think this is modern but they are not aware the 
Bible is full of SOPs given thousands of years before. But sadly people 
do not follow Bible SOPs and thus we have very inconsistent results in 
the Kingdom of God. People are not well rooted in the Kingdom of God due 
to this problem thus when problems come we see even Church leaders are 
shaking and getting consumed by vanity.


Today's message is one of the greatest SOP in the Bible which if 
followed we will see very strong Men and Women of God.


If we read the scriptures properly it says go therefore and teach all 
nations (people) baptizing them. There is a comma after therefore and 
after nations thus making them three different steps of the processes, 
also it says teach them baptizing them. It does not say teach them and 
then baptize them, it says teach baptizing them, so the teaching starts 
with baptism first and continues as they are baptized.


Baptism is not an incident but a long process which starts will the 
person surrendering to Christ and His Spirit and continues as the person 
keeps surrendering more of oneself to Christ and His Spirit. Giving the 
Gospel and teaching the Word are two different things. Gospel is giving 
the good news of the hope of salvation in Jesus Christ, it is when the 
person receives the news of hope or eternal life in Christ and 
surrenders to Christ then the person is baptizes and taught the Word of 
God. Without baptism in Christ one will not receive the promise of the 
Holy Spirit and without the Holy Spirit one will never be able to 
understand the Word of God.


The Greek word 'go therefore' does not simply mean to travel. The Greek 
word 'poreuomai' comes from root word 'peira' which means to trail, 
experience or attempt. Unless we do not become examples, we do not 
experience and we do not attempt we cannot go. To go we need to radiate 
Christ by self-experience Him. Unless we receive Christ we can give 
Christ so like the twelve who were sent after they received (Luke 9:1-6) 
we need to first receive to go and give.


We need to baptize people after they have accepted the Gospel and only 
after they have accepted the Gospel and are baptized in Christ do we 
teach them the Word of God. The Scripture says we do these three 
processes in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This is not a 
hierarchy status; the Holy Spirit is not lesser than the Son for the 
Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Son and also the Father. The Son and 
His Spirit (whom we receive) are an offset of the Father, yet scripture 
says Father, Son and Spirit. This is done because it is who reveals who.


Unless one does not know who God (Father) is the person will not know 
the Son. Son is the Way to the Father and if we do not know where we are 
going or we do not desire to go to the destination would we go the way?


Even though Jesus Christ became the way when there was no way yet to go 
alone the way or to become like Christ is not possible, that is why He 
gave us His Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit who reveals to us about 
Christ, walks with us, helps us and guides us along the way which is Christ.


Let us follow the SOP and see great results in the Kingdom of God for 
this SOP comes from Him who knows all. Let us not ignore or mock this 
SOP like the Catholics do by making the sign of the cross while saying it.


[Prayer Starter]


Lord You are Holy, Righteous, Almighty, All Seeing and All Knowing. Your 
wisdom has no measure and cannot be comprehended. Lord we pray your 
people do not follow their own understanding but like the Israelites 
followed the pillar of fire and cloud they follow your Word and Spirit. 
We pray for a great harvest for this is the time of harvest...


This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]


Mark 16:15-16


15And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel 
to every creature.


16He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that 
believeth not shall be damned.


Luke 9:1-6


1Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and 
authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.


2And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.


3And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, 
nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.


4And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.


5And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake 
off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.


6And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, 
and healing every where.


Acts 14:21And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had 
taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,

Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

In the end days

Isaiah 66:19,20And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those 
that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that 
draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not 
heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my 
glory among the Gentiles. And they shall bring all your brethren for an 
offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, 
and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy 
mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an 
offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.

This scripture has a dual prophecy it was partly fulfilled in 70AD where 
many Jews who fled Jerusalem were dispersed to various places. But then 
this fulfillment was just the shadow of what the prophecy is about.

The World was celebrating World Prayer Day last Sunday which must have 
pleased everyone that all denominations across 200 plus nations were 
praying on common points, I too would have been until I realized what 
was happening.

It may come as a surprise at times even praying can cause one to be far 
from God that is when praying overrides the purpose of God. You may say 
brother praying is good and Bible tells us to pray unceasingly, True. 
But prayer is supposed to be two way communications not one way. When we 
make prayer one way then it is not called prayer.

Last Sunday was (supposed to be) Pentecost Sunday to celebrate the day 
when the Holy Spirit was given to the Church and in other words it was 
the birthday of the Church in Christ and the day before the Lord gave us 
the message on the importance of the Spirit of Truth. So on that day 
instead of concentrating on infilling of the Holy Spirit on the Church, 
people were led (by their understanding) to pray. One of the points of 
prayer was peace in the world. Just ask yourself can we possibly have 
peace in the world? For that God will have to give us a new edition of 
the Bible for what is written cannot change. Now ask yourself was it God 
behind the World Prayer Day?

Another point of the World Prayer Day was to pray for Israel.

In the Bible there is a verse to pray for Jerusalem but no verse which 
says pray for Israel. I always ask people who are Israelites? Are 
Israelite people who habitats in the country Israel or those who hold 
valid citizenship of that country? Are Jews Israelites? What about 
Samarians people who were former Israel when the nation was split into 
Judah (Jews) and Israel (Samarians), are they not Israelites? Some would 
say those who are descendants of Jacob are called Israel. Now if you 
study Zoroastrian religion which believes in pure genealogy you would 
know how they are demising even after going into incest marriages. No 
outsider can become a Zoroastrian and any Zoroastrian marrying an 
outsider is automatically excommunicated from the clan. In the Bible 
many Prophets or Men of God married outsiders and their generations were 
considered Israelites.

Jews follow Judaism and Judaism is anti-Christ. They reject Christ and 
thus reject the Lord even they say they worship Him. Jesus, Paul and 
others have time and again pointed to the Jews that they were far for 
God and did not know Him. We find a new term Jewish-Christian it is same 
like Hindu-Christian. When a person become Christian he or is no longer 
follower of any traditions or belief, he or she is just Christian.

Our God is Lord of the World, every human from any and every country is 
His people when they turn to Him and are born again in Spirit. God is 
not God of flesh and bones which perish but He is God of the living 
which does not perish. He is Spirit and only those who live in the 
Spirit are His.

In my initial days when I read today scripture I would think in the way 
most people do how in the end days God is going to reconcile Israel 
through people outside; but then as God started giving me better 
understanding of His Kingdom I realized the whole world is His and every 
nation is His.

Woe unto us Christians if in the end days we land up like the Jews who 
earnestly awaited the sign of the Savior, the Heavenly King during the 
time of Jesus and even today they are still await for the Savior, since 
their desires are carnal and not according the Kingdom of God.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are God and You alone are God for there is no one other than 
You and this world and everything that exist is yours. Lord we pray we 
understand who You are in our lives and we enlarge our thinking and 
understanding of your Kingdom. We pray we do not be like the Jews who 
follow the text and perish. The text kills but Spirit gives life. Lord 
we pray we let your Spirit guide us to the true understanding of your 
Word so that we do not perish but have life...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 22:32I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God 
of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

Mark 12:27He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye 
therefore do greatly err.

Galatians 3:28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor 
free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Colossians 3:11Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor 
uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, 
and in all.

Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Tue 17 May 2016, 8:04 pm

Saints you have the authority

Psalm 149:6-9

6Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in 
their hand;

7To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

8To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

9To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his 
saints. Praise ye the LORD.

We as Christians are called to show the love and mercy of God, in other 
words show the nature of God like Jesus showed as man. Bible says in 
Christ we are forgiven of all our sins, but that does not mean God 
forgives all things and bears all things of every person.

Forgiveness is available to all but all do not receive it, only those 
who repent are forgiven. Christ died for all but all do not go to 
Heaven, only those who believe in Him and submit to His Spirit do. All 
are created by God but all are not His children, only those who have the 
seed of faith are [speak the language of faith]. Even among those who 
enter Heaven, all do not have the same status. Bible says 'many are 
called' it does not say 'all are called' so it is referring to a sub 
set. It also says from that 'many' a very small group stated as 'few' 
are selected / elected. So among all that believe in God there are few 
who are truly faithful.

God does believe in equality and loves everyone the same when they are 
in Him; that is why Bible says 'in Christ' there is no condemnation. So 
if John referred to himself as 'the one whom He loved' so can each and 
every one of us who believes in Christ. Even those who are not in Christ 
can say the same until He comes again to judge that is if they are alive 
then [since those who do not believe in Him are already judged and 
condemned to Hell on their death, since Adam and his generations were 
cursed to dust not just in body but also in spirit].

Today's message tells us those who are the Saints [Faithful ones] of God 
have authority to do the following.

To execute vengeance upon the heathen

To bring punishment upon the people

To bind their kings with chains

To bind their nobles with fetters of iron

The word heathen means 'people', it is a generic term but in the Bible 
usually used for those who were non Hebrew means not His people 
(symbolizes those do not speak His language of faith). It does not speak 
of personal vengeance against these people but of God's vengeance since 
verse 9 says 'judgment written'.

Punishment upon the people (people who believe in God) does not mean 
punishment in sense of destruction; the Hebrew word means more of 
correction, like a teacher punishes. It speaks of Saints having 
authority to bring correction to God's people.

The Hebrew word 'chains' comes from the root word 'leap'. To bind their 
kings with chains does not mean to imprison them but means to quicken. 
Similarly with regards to the nobles being bond with the fetters of 
iron, the iron here symbolizes strength. You may wonder what the 
scripture is talking about.

Note the 'kings' and 'nobles' comes after the word 'people' and not 
after the word 'heathen'. It does not speak of kings and nobles of the 
heathens as one is normally led to think. The word 'kings' means 
'rulers' or 'people of authority' and word 'nobles' means 'honored ones' 
and speak of those set over the people of God.

Today's message says the Faithful of God have the authority to quicken 
God's judgment on the people of the world, they have authority to 
correct the people of God, they have authority to give increase to those 
set to administer the people of God and strengthen those who are honored 
or looked up [as example] by them.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You alone are God and Almighty. Your Word Lord says we all are one 
in You as a body and as parts of the one body. Even though we are all 
loved the same yet each one has a function and a mission according to 
the plans You have set. Lord we pray those who are the Elect, those who 
are called your Faithful may understand the authority they have in You. 
May they use their authority to quicken the coming of your Kingdom on 
earth...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 20:16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be 
called, but few chosen.

Matthew 24:24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, 
and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were 
possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Sun 15 May 2016, 9:42 pm

Why Spirit of Truth is very important

Isaiah 52:3,4 For thus saith the LORD, Ye have sold yourselves for 
nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money. For thus saith the Lord 
GOD, My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the 
Assyrian oppressed them without cause.

When a Christian is asked why did God humble Himself and come as man to 
become a sacrifice for us? And almost all will say, so that we are 
forgiven of our sins. These are the name sake Christians who do not know 
Christ or His purpose.

Surely sin does not allow us to have any relationship with God but just 
by forgiveness of sins no one can be reconciled to God. Sin causes 
corruption and corruption breeds sin. So even though we are forgiven of 
our sins yet because of the corrupt nature within us we sin again. So 
for God to deal permanently with sin within us He needs to deal with 
corruption in us.

Corruption came into man due to doubt and lack of truth. Adam and Eve 
ate of the fruit of doubt. They ate of the Tree of good and evil, even 
after knowing all things that God created was good and there was no evil 
then other than Satan, and by eating the fruit they knew evil / Satan. 
After they ate the fruit of doubt they lost the Fruit of Truth and 
Righteousness and thus were hiding in bushes from a God who can see all, 
and they covered their nakedness even though they were naked before.

To return to God we need to be whole again and thus we need to receive 
the Fruit of Truth and Righteousness. The Fruit of Righteousness and 
Truth are not listed in the nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 
5:22-23) for man lost them and can only receive them from the Son and 
the Holy Spirit respectively as a gift. To receive this gift of 
Righteousness we need to have faith in the Son and to receive Truth we 
need to be led by the Spirit of Truth.

There are twelve Fruits of the Holy Spirit (Revelation 22:2, even the 
twelve gems on the breast plate of High Priest / stones Heaven is made 
of symbolize the Fruits of the Spirit), nine stated in Galatians are 
ones we can grow while the three in Ephesians 5:9 are gifts. God the Son 
gives us Righteousness, God the Spirit gives us Truth and God the Father 
gives us Holiness (when we enter Heaven / are married to the Son).

Coming back to the main question, the Lord came as man to pay the price 
of our sins to that we receive His Spirit and thus be reconciled to Him. 
That is why Jesus said unless we become His disciples [believe Him] and 
know the truth we will not be set free [free from corruption].

The Hebrew word Egypt means 'dual strait' symbolizing a person who is of 
God but living a life not of God, like the Israelites lived in Egypt 
worshipping even the gods of the Egyptians.

The Hebrew word Assyria means 'step' and symbolizes prosperity. The calf 
was a symbol of prosperity and we saw how the Israelites did to fear to 
worship the calf even when death was over their head and they knew God. 
Today also man would do anything to be prosperous in this world. 
Prosperity of this world is the anti of the prosperity of the Kingdom of 
God. Preachers today preach Prosperity Gospel which is like calf worship 
done by the Israelites. Jesus at times told people to give up all they 
have, sell it, give the money to the poor and follow Him. He did not 
tell that to all but to those who held on to things of this world. Jesus 
also said it is almost impossible for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God.

This may surprise you - Prosperity of the world is not a blessing. 
Prosperity of the world is oppression and more you get it more you will 
be oppressed. That does not mean Christians need to be poor people, or 
beggars. We Christian need to know what we need and anything extra we 
need to share with others. We Christians need to be overflowing vessels. 
Tithing is just a step to learn to overflow and teach ourselves Giving.

Today's message says man due to lack of knowledge of the Truth people 
are living in Egypt (living a dual life) and being oppressed by Assyria 
(prosperity). The only one who can free us from Egypt and Assyria is the 
Spirit of Truth. Jesus paid the price so that we could receive His 
Spirit – the Spirit of Truth. So let us who believe in Jesus Christ as 
our Savior surrender to His Spirit, be led by Him and thus become whole 
(Sons of God).

Truth cannot be learned but needs to be understood, that is why by 
studying the Bible one cannot know the Truth, it is only by living the 
Word of God and being led by His Spirit (who helps us live the Word) 
that we will know the Truth.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord When You created us we were made in your Image and were called 
Sons, but due to sin the image within us got corrupted. We were thrown 
out from your presence because corruption cannot exist before You. Lord 
You came as man and paid the price so that we could receive your Spirit 
and be whole again so as to come back in your presence. Lord we pray we 
grow in the Truth and come out of Egypt and be set free from Assyria...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Isaiah 52:5-6

5Now therefore, what have I here, saith the LORD, that my people is 
taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, saith 
the LORD; and my name continually every day is blasphemed.

6Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in 
that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.

Galatians 5:22-23

22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, 
gentleness, goodness, faith,

23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Ephesians 5:9(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness [Holiness] 
and righteousness and truth;)

Revelation 22:2In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of 
the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of 
fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree 
were for the healing of the nations.

Acts 4:33-35

33And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of 
the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

34Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were 
possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the 
things that were sold,

35And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made 
unto every man according as he had need.

The enemy shall be ashamed

Esther 6:12 And Mordecai came again to the king’s gate. But Haman hasted 
to his house mourning, and having his head covered.

All who have read the book of Esther would know the story of how her 
uncle Mordecai being a righteous person won favored in the eyes of king 
Ashasuerus the king of Persia under whose rule the Jews were. On the 
other hand Haman who was a favorite of the king and enemy of the Jews 
was put down and ashamed.

The book of Esther was not part of the Bible (OT) even during the time 
of Jesus but was included later so it is like an Apocrypha of the Jews. 
But unlike the Apocrypha of the Catholics this book does not induce any 
theological doctrines. It is just about the glorification of the victory 
and survival of the Jews through a great disaster. It can be read as 
other chronicle books of the OT. So if someone say the Bible has 65 or 
66 books, both answers would be right (incidentally the book of Isaiah 
has 65 or 66 chapters since the last is kind of repeated).

The OT is a shadow and we in Christ are the reality. If God would do 
such great things in the shadow then imagine what He is capable of doing 
in the light. Today God is saying if we walk in His ways of 
righteousness our enemies will eat the dust and will be ashamed before 
their very own. So do not live or change your life to please people but 
live your life to please God and God will make the kings / rulers of 
this world / your bosses / your leaders to favor you even if they do not 
like it.

The opposite is also true, when we forsake His ways we will be ashamed 
before our enemies.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are God and a Living God. We pray Lord we do not forget You 
are Alive at all times and You are in view and understanding of our 
situations more than us. We pray Lord we live our lives not to please 
people but to please You and surely You will cause us to have favor not 
only in your sight but also in the sight of the rulers of this world...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Leviticus 26:3-9

3If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;

4Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her 
increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

5And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall 
reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and 
dwell in your land safely.

6And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none 
shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, 
neither shall the sword go through your land.

7And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the 
sword.

8And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put 
ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.

9For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply 
you, and establish my covenant with you.

Psalms 23:5aThou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine 
enemies:

Deuteronomy 28:7The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against 
thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one 
way, and flee before thee seven ways.

Deuteronomy 28:15,25

15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of 
the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes 
which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon 
thee, and overtake thee:

25The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou 
shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and 
shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

Lord will search with candles

Zephaniah 1:12-14

12And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem 
with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that 
say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil.

13Therefore their goods shall become a booty, and their houses a 
desolation: they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they 
shall plant vineyards, but not drink the wine thereof.

14The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, 
even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there 
bitterly.

Religions that do idolatry in reality believe in non-existing god/gods 
and thus create one with their own hands. Christianity is not a 
religion; it is about acknowledging the Living God but even in 
Christianity idolatry exists. In Christianity we see Catholics do 
idolatry and sadly they alone are not just the ones who do it. Believer 
Churches also do idolatry even if they do not make or bow or serve 
images or idols. As one moves from Catholic to a Believer who worships 
God in Spirit and Truth we find idolatry in varying proportions along 
this road.

One may wonder how is it possible to make idols and worship them when we 
have the Word of God which tells us the Truth. Today's message gives us 
an insight of why this happens. People think because God does not react 
immediately or judge immediately so people think God is ok with it, God 
understands, He is a comprising God.

Just some days back a Catholic who receives my messages (but with a 
hardened heart of 'I will die Catholic') was telling me God judges 
instantly and does not delay for He is a just God.

One may think he was speaking good and praising God, but if one discerns 
his actual meaning he was in other words saying in this world evil exist 
and God has done nothing so God will do nothing and evil will get away 
unpunished.

Let us remember Bible is full of prophecies and these prophecies have 
been set in its time. Like from day one God knew who will abide in His 
Will and wrote their names in the Book of Life so also God knew how much 
deep and wide evil would spread so He set barrier for it to not 
overflow. Bible also says what evil existed before is the same evil we 
see today but it is only in a different form. Also since population has 
increased and communication improved we hear of more evil and hear it 
quicker.

One will find the belief of balance of good and bad which exist in 
spiritualism religion (believing in spirits of nature) / polytheism 
religions also exist in monotheist religions which believe in a god / 
God. Take case of Islam or Catholicism, they believe sin has to be paid 
its price some or other way even though they speak of forgiveness of 
sins, that is why they believes in penance and Catholicism has a concept 
known as Purgatory.

One may think these people are trying to acknowledge good and bad and 
are trying to overcome evil. That is not true, they are instead trying 
to justify evil and continue in it. What they are really doing is saying 
God punishes evil and since He has not punished evil like what we do, so 
He is okay with it. That is why they do not fear to do evil or continue 
in it.

Today God is telling the so called Christians [others are already 
judged] who think God's hands are short, that time is at hand He will 
soon search the hearts and thoughts of His people like a man searches 
with candles or torch and He is going to punish them like one would not 
imagine.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord God one of the Names You are described by is Slow to Anger. Lord 
You are a Righteous God yet You are a Merciful God. You hate evil but 
You love man whom You have created in your Image. In your mercy Lord, 
You have given sinful man time and all the help to come out of evil so 
that man does not get consumed with it. We pray Lord these people walk 
up and their eyes open to know You and that they repent from their ways 
and be saved from your wrath...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Psalms 10:11,13

11He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he 
will never see it.

13Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, Thou 
wilt not require it.

Ecclesiastes 1:9The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and 
that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new 
thing under the sun.

2 Peter 3:4-7

4And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers 
fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the 
creation.

5For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the 
heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the 
water:

6Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

7But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept 
in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition 
of ungodly men.

Revelation 2:20-23

20Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou 
sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to 
teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things 
sacrificed unto idols.

21And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

22Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with 
her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

23And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall 
know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give 
unto every one of you according to your works.

For His Name sake and Covenant sake

Jeremiah 14:20-22

20We acknowledge, O LORD, our wickedness, and the iniquity of our 
fathers: for we have sinned against thee.

21Do not abhor us, for thy name's sake, do not disgrace the throne of 
thy glory: remember, break not thy covenant with us.

22Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles that can cause rain? 
or can the heavens give showers? art not thou he, O LORD our God? 
therefore we will wait upon thee: for thou hast made all these things.

When the summer started in India I was given a warning (vision) of this 
being a crazy summer (humans going crazy), in the very next 2 days I saw 
in papers in a place in the suburbs of Mumbai police were on the streets 
due to people rioting for water. We have read after that the way things 
were in many villages, some villages banded marriages for this summer. 
Some villages were half emptied since people moved out for the sake of 
water so that they could survive. Some villages we saw people did not 
bath for 8 days and if they did it was like mopping not bathing.

We heard after some time Church leaders and their congregations came 
together and prayed hard and then we saw immediately relieve came, with 
rains starting in those areas. Everyone is now happy that they prayed 
and the Lord answered, but none want to find out why in the first place 
this happened. Do things happen without the Lord being in control?

If we remember we received our first warning 14th Feb, another on 9th 
March and the 14th Feb message was repeated on 17th April of how the Men 
of God were projecting a wrong image of God to the people so as to 
please them.

Today God is telling us the cause of this drought was the leaders 
themselves who angered God, but yet for His Name sake and the sake of 
His Covenant His mercy gave way.

Let us understand who we are in Christ. The world can be as evil as it 
wants but if we are rooted in the Lord and walk in His ways the world 
and its people are safe, but the day we shake spiritually and forsake 
the Lord's ways, this world will see the wrath of God.

Like Moses stood between the people and God's wrath we too stand between 
this evil world and God's wrath, so not only for our own sake but also 
for the sake of others who do not know God let us Men of God stand in Him.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we Chosen of You are set as Watchmen over your people and over the 
people of this world. Lord we pray we understand our responsibility of 
not pleasing the carnal people but walk in the Truth, in your ways which 
are ways of light. We pray your people learn so that they do not see 
such days again...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Jeremiah 14:1-6

1The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah concerning the dearth.

2Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish; they are black unto the 
ground; and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up.

3And their nobles have sent their little ones to the waters: they came 
to the pits, and found no water; they returned with their vessels empty; 
they were ashamed and confounded, and covered their heads.

4Because the ground is chapt, for there was no rain in the earth, the 
plowmen were ashamed, they covered their heads.

5Yea, the hind also calved in the field, and forsook it, because there 
was no grass.

6And the wild asses did stand in the high places, they snuffed up the 
wind like dragons; their eyes did fail, because there was no grass.

Jeremiah 14:11-18

11Then said the LORD unto me, Pray not for this people for their good.

12When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt 
offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume 
them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.

13Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye 
shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give 
you assured peace in this place.

14Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I 
sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: 
they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of 
nought, and the deceit of their heart.

15Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in 
my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not 
be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.

16And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets 
of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have 
none to bury them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their 
daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.

17Therefore thou shalt say this word unto them; Let mine eyes run down 
with tears night and day, and let them not cease: for the virgin 
daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very 
grievous blow.

18If I go forth into the field, then behold the slain with the sword! 
and if I enter into the city, then behold them that are sick with 
famine! yea, both the prophet and the priest go about into a land that 
they know not.

Message on 14th Feb

Jeremiah 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible 
thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the 
hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are 
all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

Message on 9th March

Jeremiah 23:13 And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they 
prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err.

Message 17th April

Jeremiah 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible 
thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the 
hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are 
all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

The anger of God is like His Word

Jeremiah 23:20 The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have 
executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the 
latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.

We always state the scripture of Isaiah 55:11 how the Word of God sent 
by the Lord will not return to Him without doing what it has been set to 
do, but none speak of the anger which like His Word will never return 
without doing what it was set to do.

God hates sin, His anger is against sin and sin will perish at the end. 
Who so ever is in sin will also perish for His anger will destroy sin 
and everything connected to it. But since He loves us, He did not hold 
back in any way to help us to come out of sin so that we live and are 
blessed in Him.

Today's scripture talks of another thing that angers God and that is 
false or maligned prophecy. Here we are not talking just of false Men of 
God who are not Christians (or associated with God's name). God says 
there were people who call themselves His representative and speak in 
His name saying things which He has not said. His anger is not only 
against these false representatives but also against those who are His 
representatives and due to various reasons twist His Word just to please 
people and gain pleasure of the carnal flesh / soul.

Yesterday I heard peaching at Sunday Service which was half Christian 
and half Hinduism or Chinese philosophy (yin yang) that believes in 
balance of good and bad. What angered me was not just the ignorance or 
lack of scriptural knowledge of the preacher but also of those hearing 
it. The people swallowed the bones along with the chicken. The spirit 
that does not discern but accepts all things is symbolized as a pig and 
God says this spirit is an unclean spirit; people having such unclean 
spirits will not experience Him or dwell in His presence.

We forget scriptures like Jeremiah 23:29 where God says isn't my Word 
fire or a hammer that breaks rocks. His Word is required to purify us by 
burning that which is not of Him in us, His Word is like a hammer that 
breaks falsehood in us.

People find my messages hard or strong for I give which I receive from 
the Lord. They ask me to soften the message and reflect more of the 
mercy and compassion of God. Is God compassionate and His Word 
uncompassionate?

God's Word is a sword that not against us but against sin and sin 
nature. If we do not want to come out of the sin nature then can we 
expect God's sword not to hurt us? Jesus said the Father is Husband of 
the Vineyard who cuts us off from the vine of Adam and prunes us into 
the true vine which is Christ. At the end all that is not in the vine 
which is Christ will be cut and put in the fire. Now if we do not want 
to be disconnected from the old vine can we escape the fire? Can we 
bridge the old vine to the vine of Christ?

[Prayer Starter]

Lord your Word is like a double edge sword that splits the bone from the 
marrow, it spits that old character from the spirit. Like your Word your 
anger too is holy and it will not return back void, without doing what 
it is set against. Lord we pray we understand how fearful it is to fall 
in the hands of the Living God, we pray your Representatives be honest 
to your Word and speak as it is given unto them, that they do not invoke 
judgment on them...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it 
shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I 
please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Jeremiah 23:21-32

21I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to 
them, yet they prophesied.

22But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear 
my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and 
from the evil of their doings.

23Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?

24Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith 
the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.

25I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, 
saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.

26How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy 
lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

27Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which 
they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my 
name for Baal.

28The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath 
my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the 
wheat? saith the LORD.

29Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that 
breaketh the rock in pieces?

30Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that 
steal my words every one from his neighbour.

31Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their 
tongues, and say, He saith.

32Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, 
and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their 
lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall 
not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.

Hebrews 10:31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Be poor and be a prey

Psalms 10:9 He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in 
wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into 
his net.

Today's message talking of how the wicked preys on the poor like a 
hungry lion consumes its prey. The scripture is not talking of those who 
are financially poor but about those who are spiritually poor.

When we are not spiritually strong / mature we are available preys to 
the wicked. Note in today's message it says the wicked is like a hungry 
lion hiding in its den. So for the poor to become a prey of the wicked 
it needs to go near the den, if it does not go near the den then it is 
safe. The scripture also says the wicked draws the prey towards its den 
using deceiving ways (net). So for the poor it is not just about making 
up one's mind of not going near the den but also of actively discerning 
things so as to not fall to the tricks the wicked uses to draw it 
towards its den.

What is very interesting is as I was studying today's scripture I 
checked the meaning of the word poor. I found it comes from the root 
word which means to be occupied or to be busy.

Each and every person who is on the journey to become like Christ 
(definition of a Christian) is a growing person. That means if we have 
decided to be Christian, we like it or not we will grow spiritually. The 
only things that can stop us from growing is us. That does not mean we 
reject Christ but means we get ourselves busy with things, even if they 
may be 'Christian' things.

A person poor in spirit means a person who is busy with the world or 
worldly things and lacks time for his or she spirit.

God is telling us if we do not want to be a prey to the wicked then 
remove time for the worldly things we are busy with. When we say we do 
not have time it means we are nearing the den of the wicked one and we 
will any time land up being prey to him.

Today God is telling us to ask ourselves how much time we give to our 
spiritual growth in the Lord. If we are not internally growing then we 
are spiritually poor and if we are spiritually poor it would not be long 
that we will become prey to the wicked one.

Tomorrow when we fall into calamity do not look up and ask God why? But 
ask ourselves why did I not remove time for myself?

[Prayer Starter]

Lord in the Bible You call yourself a Morning Star, also You Lord ask 
for the first fruits. Lord we pray we understand their meaning. We pray 
we give You Lord the best part of our day which is the early morning. 
Help us Lord to spend time with You and your Word early morning, the 
time the Manna fell so that we get nourished and do not be poor and prey 
to the wicked...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Psalms 10:2-11

2The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in 
the devices that they have imagined.

3For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the 
covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.

4The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after 
God: God is not in all his thoughts.

5His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his 
sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.

6He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be 
in adversity.

7His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is 
mischief and vanity.

8He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places 
doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.

9He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to 
catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.

10He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his 
strong ones.

11He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he 
will never see it.

Revelation 22:16I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these 
things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and 
the bright and morning star.

Deuteronomy 26:2That thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of 
the earth, which thou shalt bring of thy land that the LORD thy God 
giveth thee, and shalt put it in a basket, and shalt go unto the place 
which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name there.
