Wrath of God on His people

Joel 1:15 Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a 
destruction from the Almighty shall it come.

Yesterday I was sitting and preparing on Joel chapter 1 so as to share 
on it at our Church cell group and today the Lord gave me a verse from 
the very chapter.

I have read this chapter many a times but when one is asked to preach on 
it then the chapter just explodes into something one did not imagine. 
The chapter being a prophecy to the generations of Israel, almost every 
line is symbolic and has great depth into it. The anger of God after 
years and years of tolerance of the stiff-neck Israelites shows up in 
the book of Joel.

This same wrath is projected in the parable by Jesus of the fig tree in 
the vine yard. Israel is projected as a fig tree planted in a vineyard, 
which does not bear fruit. When the man questioned the dresser of the 
vineyard the viability of keeping this unfruitful tree since 3 years, 
the dresser says he would nurture it further for another year to see if 
it bears fruit and then would take due steps against it.

The history of the people of Israel starts with Noah for the first 
covenant was made between God and man Noah. From Noah to Jesus, it was 
about 3000 years (symbolizing 3 years) and we see before the end of the 
next 2000 years (after 1 year) was the Second World War where the Jews 
saw the worse days of their history.

Let us understand that God cannot be taken for granted so also His grace 
cannot be taken for granted. True His abundance grace is available for 
us but this grace too is for a purpose and for a period. If grace was 
endless then Judgment Day should not have existed, truth is it is there 
and all will be judged.

Bible says do not let the Sun [symbolizing God's grace] go down on our 
anger for then the same anger will work against us. So till God's grace 
is available let us change and turn to Him. Let us not be like the 
Israelites who kept testing God's grace and then saw His wrath.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Slow to Anger but then You being a Righteous God will one 
day take action. We pray Lord we do not see your wrath as the Jews did. 
We pray your people wake up and turn to your ways today, and do not wait 
for tomorrow for tomorrow may be too late...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Joel 1:1-3
1 The word of the LORD that came to Joel the son of Pethuel.
2 Hear this, ye old men, and give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. 
Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers?
3 Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their 
children, and their children another generation.

Luke 13:
6 He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in 
his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.
7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three 
years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; 
why cumbereth it the ground?
8 And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, 
till I shall dig about it, and dung it:
9 And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt 
cut it down.

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

Hebrews 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the 
knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

John the Baptist's life of repentance

John 1:23, 24 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, 
Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias. And they 
which were sent were of the Pharisees.

I have hear many preachers preach of how John the Baptist declared Jesus 
being the Lamb of God or how he baptized many including Jesus in the 
Jordan river. But I have never heard any one preach why John the Baptist 
at an early age lived a life of repentance and solitude in the wilderness.

Repentance is required for a person who has strayed away for a righteous 
life. John the Baptist was not a great sinner or did not do any great 
wrongs to have chosen to live a life of repentance when he was small. It 
is only when we understand he was Elijah who was taken up that we 
understand the way of life of John.

Elijah was one of the greatest Prophets after Moses for the great 
miracles he did. Even today we have many cult followers of Elijah like 
End Times Ministry / Elijah Ministries who have made Elijah almost a god 
like Jews have made Moses and Catholics have made Mary.

No one knew John the Baptist was Elijah leaving for Jesus. If we see the 
only Prophet rebuked by Jesus was Elijah even though he was so great a 
Prophet. When we understand why Jesus rebuked Elijah (spirit of Elijah) 
we will understand the life of repentance of John.

The life of Elijah and John the Baptist put together is a great teaching 
for all Men and Women of God who desire to do great works in the Kingdom 
of God. Like to follow the Spirit of the Word is more important than to 
follow the text of the Word, similarly the reason of our works will 
define to whom we give the glory, to God or to ourselves. We need to do 
the Lord's work in the right spirit and for the right purpose.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You alone are God and You alone are worthy of all glory. Lord we 
pray as we work in your vineyard we maintain the right spirit and the 
right purpose. We pray Lord we be a blessing for your people more and 
more...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Luke 1:13-17
13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is 
heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call 
his name John.
14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his 
birth.
15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink 
neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy 
Ghost, even from his mother's womb.
16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God.
17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn 
the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the 
wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

Matthew 17:11-13
11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, 
and restore all things.
12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him 
not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also 
the Son of man suffer of them.
13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the 
Baptist.

Luke 9:54-56
54 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, 
wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume 
them, even as Elias did?
55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner 
of spirit ye are of.
56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save 
them. And they went to another village.

Luke 9:28-31
28 And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took 
Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.
29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and 
his raiment was white and glistering.
30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias:
31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should 
accomplish at Jerusalem.

Inferring without confirming

Acts 21:29 (For they had seen before with him in the city Trophimus an 
Ephesian, whom they supposed that Paul had brought into the temple.)

In today's message we read how the people who saw Paul with an Ephesian, 
later saw Paul performing a Jewish tradition in the Temple thus assumed 
that the Ephesian was with Paul in the Temple. This conclusion without 
confirmation led to them to create something like a riot situation in 
the whole city.

Paul did do a mistake of agreeing to join a few people to give up their 
Jewish belief and accept Christ after doing a Jewish ritual (breaking a 
vow). This mistake became very dear to Paul for this led to his arrest 
and later to become a martyr. Paul, who corrected others, did what he 
warned others, simply because he did not rely on his own judgment but 
fell due to pressure and convincing by others.

Today the Lord wants to open our eyes to inference we cause on ourselves 
due to influence of others and due to our own assumption. This effect is 
very much seen in our understanding of scriptures. There are hundreds of 
cases where the scripture simply states 'X' thing but due the constant 
telling of others we understand 'Y' thing. We read 'X' but let the 'Y' 
be assumed. We also take 'A' from a scripture and 'B' from another 
scripture and then add 'A'+'B' to assume 'C' since 'A+B=C', not 
confirming if 'C' is supported or rejected by other scriptures.

Inferring without confirming is the greatest cause of various 
denominations being formed. During the times of the Apostles since they 
sat and discussed therefore they did not face many situations of 
difference of doctrines between themselves. Yes there were a few times 
like between Paul and Peter but this too was soon overcome over a period 
of time. We may be very cautious like Paul but even one time letting 
down our guard can become costly for us.

Discussions are very important for spiritual growth. We should hear 
every option but accept only after verifying. Things which are contrary 
to scriptures we should reject, if we do not understand we should not 
reject but leave it aside for another day while praying over it.

We turn discussion into arguments, when we take the focus from the topic 
and put the focus on the people. When people are made more important 
than the understanding, we have divisions and then denominations.

Let us not assume things due to the teaching of others however famous or 
many they may be nor assume due to our own over sight. Let us confirm 
all things and be always open for correction. If we do this we will do 
well in the Kingdom of God.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God. You Lord reject the wise of this world for 
they do not know the truth but believe in the words of man. They are 
like blind men who claim to be able to see by their touch. Lord we pray 
we confirm all understanding through your Word and not let people or our 
own assumption cause to mislead us from the truth...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Acts 21:18-34

Matthew 13:13-15
13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; 
and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By 
hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall 
see, and shall not perceive:
15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of 
hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should 
see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand 
with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Spiritual Gifts

1 Corinthians 12:1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not 
have you ignorant.

If we read chapter 12 of Paul's first letter to the Church at Corinth, 
Paul while talking of spiritual gifts starts with the paganism practiced 
by the Israelites and about one not being able to say Jesus is the Lord 
without the help of the Holy Spirit. Let me address them in the reverse 
order.

If we recollect most of the terrorist attacks by Islamist, they let go 
of the people only if they recite the Shahada which is the first verse 
of the Quran. The Shahada states there is no other god than Allah and 
Mohammad is his prophet. If the person does recite this they believe the 
person is a Muslim so let go of the person else they kill the person. In 
the current situation happening in Philippines where a town is under 
seize by ISIS people many Catholic managed to escape death by reciting 
the Shahada.

If one studies the Shahada it actually acknowledges the existence of 
other gods but selects Allah as their god and Mohammad is his prophet. 
Now to recite the Shahada one does not need a person to really believe 
it, if a person really understands it and believes it means he or she is 
indeed a Muslim. Similarly by saying Jesus is the Lord one does not 
become a Christian or has the Holy Spirit but when we understand the 
words 'Jesus is the Lord' it does for it means there is no other God 
than the Lord and Jesus is Him; so to say such a thing needs a 
revelation of the Holy Spirit. It speaks of the oneness of God even 
though we speak of the Son, the Holy Spirit and the Father and Jesus 
being Him.

When we talk of Christian faith, we normally think of what a person 
accepted from the Bible. Faith is not only what a person has accepted 
from the Bible but also what a person has accepted from the world, it is 
one's belief and one's disbelief together that composes one's faith. 
When one believes Jesus is Lord and also believes in other gods than 
that person does not know Jesus and has nullifies his or her faith in 
Jesus. The former Israelites (first lot) who exited Egypt whose names 
were removed from the Book of Life because they believed in other gods 
while they believed in the Lord.

Paul spoke of this while touching the topic of spiritual gifts since 
spiritual gifts is a very important part of a Christian life it 
underlines one's baptism in the Holy Spirit. If anyone claims to be 
baptized in the Holy Spirit will have at least one spiritual gift, 
anyone not having any spiritual gift can be rest assured the he or she 
is yet not baptized in the Holy Spirit. In the book of Acts we see most 
of the baptism in the Holy Spirit, were manifested with receiving the 
gift of Tongues. Those who understand the gift of Tongues will know how 
it builds faith of a person by get one to overcome one's own thinking. 
Those who deny the gift of Tongues will be always found to be a confused 
lot lacking faith and lacking understanding of scriptures.

Let us understand by giving God a small place in our lives we do not 
become Christians. To be Christians we need to surrender ourselves 
completely to God. Surely there will be a battle like Jacob battled but 
then we too will be called Israel / Sons of God only if we do not give 
up like Jacob did not. To be baptized in the Holy Spirit we need to 
battle with our understanding of God and this can be done only with 
surrendering to the Holy Spirit. Our surrender / baptism in the Holy 
Spirit will manifest with the gift/s of the Holy Spirit and this/these 
gift/s will help us in our spiritual walk in Him.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are God and You alone are God. Your Son, a part of You humbled 
and became man and became our way to You. He paid the price for ours 
sins so that we receive His Spirit who helps us walk in that way. Your 
Son and His Spirit not only opened the door to Heaven but made the 
impossible possible for us, today we can see the open door to Heaven and 
can go to Heaven. Lord we pray we understand the importance of 
surrendering to your Spirit after believing in the Word. It is your 
Spirit who makes the Word into a Living Word in us...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
1 Corinthians 12:1-11
1 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, 
even as ye were led.
3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the 
Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus 
is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which 
worketh all in all.
7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit 
withal.
8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the 
word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing 
by the same Spirit;
10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another 
discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another 
the interpretation of tongues:
11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to 
every man severally as he will.

Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to 
speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Acts 19:6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Spirit 
came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

Giving least importance to the natural efforts

Mark 11:11 And he entered Jerusalem and went into the temple. And when 
he had looked around at everything, as it was already late, he went out 
to Bethany with the twelve.

We see during Jesus' life time on earth as man He spent a lot of time 
around synagogues for He preached there. He went there for the people 
and not for what the people did there, He kept himself far from the 
traditions of the Jewish people even though He was born Jew.

Today's message speaks of the time towards the end of His ministry when 
He entered Jerusalem on a young of a donkey. Many of the Jews did 
consider Him to be 'Messiah' the savior of Israel and the prophet 
promised who would be greater than Moses but by Jesus coming on the 
young of the donkey with its mother tagging alone, He fulfilled the 
prophecy of Zachariah (9:9) and they were confirmed, thus shouted 
'Hosanna'. The Hebrew word 'Hosanna' is from Psalms 118:25 and means 
'save now, I beseech thee' for the Jewish people thought the Lord was 
going to deliver them from the Romans at the hands of Jesus.

What is interesting is after His grand welcome to Jerusalem Jesus goes 
to the temple drives away the traders and then takes a look around the 
temple. Before this He had been invited to take a tour of the temple but 
He did not care, He even drove away the traders before but did not care 
to look around. Now that the time was on hand He did spent time to look 
at the work done to build the temple until it became very late in the 
evening. We see after His visit the next day He cursed a fig tree that 
seems to be in fruitful from far (the tree changes color of its leaves) 
but on going near there were no fruits on it.

God gives the least importance to worldly things that we do even if they 
are done in His name. We may build grand Church structures or even 
housing complexes for the homeless people. What He is interested more is 
our building His people. He will not dishonor our work but then He will 
also not honor it, He will surely see it but will not reward us for it.

We need to understand whatever we do must bear fruit in the lives of the 
people. It may it be big or small, the size of the job is not important 
but the fruits it bears is.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are God who sees all and knows all. You Lord are not deceived 
by man or the works of man. You Lord look deep within the hearts of man 
and know their thoughts. You Lord reward them that truly work selflessly 
for your Kingdom. You are the Lord who provides the harvest and You 
alone give growth to the harvest. Lord even though You do almost 
everything yet You desire man to be the instrument through whom You 
bring light into the darkness. What use is a grand lamp which is not lit 
in darkness? Lord we pray we shine your glory more than our own...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Psalms 118:25 Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, 
send now prosperity.

Mark 11:12-14, 20-21
12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he 
might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing 
but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.
14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee 
hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried 
up from the roots.
21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the 
fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.

Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of 
Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having 
salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an 
ass.

John 2:13-17

Matthew 21:11-17

Luke 21:5-6
5 And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly 
stones and gifts, he said,
6 As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which 
there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown 
down.

Moses the Great Law Giver

Acts 7:29 Then fled Moses at this saying, and was a stranger in the land 
of Madian, where he begat two sons.

We know in the Old Testament Moses stands out as a great Man of God for 
he was used by the Lord to give the Law of the Lord. The Lord also did 
great miracles and wonders by the hand of Moses. The influence of Moses 
is so great that other than Elijah, David and Abraham none stand near 
him in the lives of the Jews. The fact God hid his body after he died 
speaks volumes; God knew he would be the Mary of the Catholic Church and 
the Jews would idolize his body. We see when Stephen was stoned to death 
because the Jews accused him of Blasphemy, first of the name of Moses 
and then of the name of the Lord. Moses himself could not be blamed for 
the Jews putting him to the level of a god and this we read in Jude.

Even though Moses had great influence on the Jewish people yet we see 
his 2 sons had no role as leaders, they were ordinary Levis. On the 
other hand we see Aaron the bother of Moses and his sons had important 
role to play as leaders of the Jewish Church. The person to blame for 
this was none other than Moses himself. The first time when the Lord 
asked Moses to go to Pharaoh and ask him to release His people, Moses 
hesitated and started making excuses. Moses who was bought up as a 
brother to the Pharaoh in his place now was reasons of incompetency of 
speech pointing to his stammering. Had Moses not hesitated, the Lord 
would not have got Aaron in the picture and if Aaron was not in the 
picture, his sons too would not have been chosen as leaders.

We need to understand our blessings flow from us to our children. We can 
be door openers for great blessings in their lives in the Kingdom of God 
if we walk in the will of the Lord always.

Let us not be Moses who had seen wonders of the Lord yet hesitated and 
stepped back. Even though he later gained courage yet that opportunity 
did not come again. Let us say YES to the Lord every moment, having 
trust and courage in Him.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God. Let not this acknowledgment be just words but 
a realization in our lives. May we remember always that nothing is 
impossible for You. Lord we pray that we be ready to say YES to You 
every moment of our lives so that not only we be blessed but our 
generations too be blessed in You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Deuteronomy 34:5-6
5 So Moses the servant of the LORD died there in the land of Moab, 
according to the word of the LORD.
6 And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against 
Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.

Acts 6:11 Then they suborned men, which said, We have heard him speak 
blasphemous words against Moses, and against God.

Jude 1:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he 
disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing 
accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

Exodus 4:10-17
10 And Moses said unto the LORD, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither 
heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow 
of speech, and of a slow tongue.
11 And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh 
the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?
12 Now therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what 
thou shalt say.
13 And he said, O my Lord, send, I pray thee, by the hand of him whom 
thou wilt send.
14 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is 
not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And 
also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he 
will be glad in his heart.
15 And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I 
will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye 
shall do.
16 And he shall be thy spokesman unto the people: and he shall be, even 
he shall be to thee instead of a mouth, and thou shalt be to him instead 
of God.
17 And thou shalt take this rod in thine hand, wherewith thou shalt do 
signs.

Does God hate horses?

Zechariah 12:4,5 In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse 
with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes 
upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with 
blindness. And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The 
inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts their 
God.

In the Hebrew language names of people / place or things are not given 
names just for the sake of it. Every name has a meaning and by it 
meaning its purpose or description or desire is known.

The word for horse in Hebrew comes from the root meaning swift which 
means the object is swift or used to travel fast. In symbolism a horse 
symbolizes progress.

The word translated as governor means guide here (it also means friend 
or duke).

Jerusalem is a small part of Judea / Judaea, and Judaea was a part of 
Israel (Judah is the tribe to whom this part was given), so when the 
Lord referred to Jerusalem many a times He did not mean the city or the 
people of the city. Jerusalem symbolizes those growing in the Lord that 
is why we see the Lord says in this scripture ‘shall be my strength’ and 
not ‘is my strength’, more in the future. We also read the Lord says 
pray for Jerusalem and not pray for Israel since Jerusalem grows into 
Israel (having authority in God / Prince of God) and those who are 
matured do not need our prayers. People of God have a spiritual journey 
that starts from Egypt (dual life /lost sheep) end into Israel (Sons of 
God).

Today’s message talks of the anger of God on His people. He says those 
who are guides to His people have utterly disappointed Him. He talks of 
them experiencing His wrath. Every time we have received such a 
scripture we have seen a shaking. But the Lord being a merciful God, 
even though He gets angry, He does not fully consume His people, He does 
bless them after the shaking.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Father and You love your people. Even though in your anger 
You chastise yet in your mercy You bless. Lord we pray for those growing 
in the Lord that they grow in You and be strong. We pray Lord especially 
for those who You have set to lead your people that they may honestly do 
their job and that have the fear of the Lord...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Psalms 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that 
love thee.

Isaiah 5:3 And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, 
judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard.

Mark 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken 
of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that 
readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

Children of Promise

Galatians 4:31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, 
but of the free.

In today's message we find the Lord defines us between the children of 
Hagar and children of Sarah. No doubt Hagar gave birth to Ishmael at the 
hand of the Angel of God who met her by the fountain on the way to Sur, 
yet we see this child had no part in the inheritance of Abraham. The 
child did receive blessings from the Lord, he too did have 12 sons who 
were leaders of 12 tribes and they too did multiply. So whatever 
blessings Isaac and Jacob had together in the natural was also received 
by Ishmael. In fact Ishmael did not struggle for it like Jacob did, or 
go through a test like Isaac did.

If we read a couple of verse before today's message we read the Lord is 
equating us not really to Hagar and Sarah but more to children of the 
flesh and children of the spirit. Those who dwell in the flesh or things 
of the flesh are like Ishmael and those who try to dwell in the spirit / 
led by the spirit are like children of Sarah (Isaac / Jacob). We need to 
note what Ishmael alone received it which took Isaac and Jacob together 
to receive it. But then the linage of Ishmael will perish but not the 
lineage of Isaac and Jacob (not natural lineage but spiritual lineage) 
for they have Abraham's promise.

The Lord is telling us life as people of the flesh will be easy compared 
to being people of the spirit. We will need to take double efforts to do 
so. But then we are not looking at an earthly reward. The reward we look 
at in fact is not known fully to almost all, yet we know it is an 
excellent reward for it is from the Lord and the Lord has gone to all 
extends and costs to see we receive it.

If today we claim to be children having the promise of Abraham we need 
to be children of the spirit and not children of the flesh, so we need 
to overcome the desires of the flesh. If you and I are daily caught up 
with things of the flesh, things of this world then we need to ask 
ourselves are we children of Hagar or children of Sarah?

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are God and there is none other than You. Lord we pray we 
realize your Kingdom is not of this world and if we dwell in the natural 
we will not able to enter your Kingdom. We pray Lord we understand even 
if it is very difficult we need to overcome the desires of the flesh. 
Help us to live a sober lives in the natural that we do not become like 
the overloaded camel which can not pass through the gate...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Galatians 4:29-31
29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was 
born after the Spirit, even so it is now.
30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and 
her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of 
the freewoman.
31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the 
free.

Genesis 16:7-13
7 And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water in the 
wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.
8 And he said, Hagar, Sarai's maid, whence camest thou? and whither 
wilt thou go? And she said, I flee from the face of my mistress Sarai.
9 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Return to thy mistress, and 
submit thyself under her hands.
10 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, I will multiply thy seed 
exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude.
11 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with 
child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because 
the LORD hath heard thy affliction.
12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and 
every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all 
his brethren.
13 And she called the name of the LORD that spake unto her, Thou God 
seest me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that seeth me?

Genesis 25:16 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, 
by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their 
nations.

Bible portrays the truth as it is

Ezekiel 23: 14 And that she increased her whoredoms: for when she saw 
men pourtrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans pourtrayed 
with vermilion,

Whenever a Christian apologist debates with a Muslim dawah one is see 
the first thing the dawah does is open to scriptures in the Bible which 
talk of pervert acts been done, or things which are not considered 
dignified as human today. Although most of the time it is their 
misunderstanding of those scripture but yet at times they do point to 
undignified things being done in the Bible.

We need to understand in the Old Testament the Lord tried to guide the 
Israelites to be His people. Although He chose them to be His people, we 
hardly see of times they behaved like His people. Time and again they 
did things which angered God and they were punished more at the hands of 
God then by their enemies.

In today's message we see the Lord speaks through Ezekiel about His 
displeasure against the Jewish Church (Aholah) and its sister the 
Catholic Church (Aholibah), how they followed man more than God, how 
they incorporated pagan rituals in the name of the Lord and did whoredom.

The Jewish Church is like the first lot that exited Egypt, they saw 
great miracles and also experienced the glory of God but due to their 
stiff-neck attitude they were consumed in the wilderness. They struggled 
and won all the battles against their enemies but the Lord Himself 
became their greatest enemy.

The Christian Believer Church is like the second generation who only 
heard of the great miracles but did experience the glory of God. All the 
greatest enemies of the first generation were defeated by the second 
generation. They were the ones who truly carried the Ark of Covenant 
[symbolizes the Cross] and crossed the Jordan River [symbolizes 
inheritance of the Father] to inherit the Promised Land [symbolizes Heaven].

The Bible does not hide the mistakes of the people to make itself look 
good but exposes mistakes so that we learn not to repeat them. Let us 
not be ashamed by some of the things that are written in the Bible but 
let us be ashamed if we repeat them even after being warned.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are a Merciful God, You are full of mercy but your mercy can 
not be taken for granted. The Israelites received your mercy / former 
rain but always failed, we who are in Christ have received grace / later 
rain, we pray we do not fail like them. We pray we do not put man before 
You or follow traditions of man like they did and still do. We pray we 
be like the second generation of Israelites who did win battles, see 
your glory and entered the Promised Land for the Bible says when they 
died they were gathered unto their fathers...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Ezekiel 23:2-19

Exodus 23:31-34
31 And Moses returned unto the LORD, and said, Oh, this people have 
sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.
32 Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin - ; and if not, blot me, I 
pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.
33 And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him 
will I blot out of my book.
34 Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have 
spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless 
in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.

Judges 2:8-10
8 And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being an 
hundred and ten years old.
9 And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnathheres, 
in the mount of Ephraim, on the north side of the hill Gaash.
10 And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and 
there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor 
yet the works which he had done for Israel.

James 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. 
Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and 
hath long patience for it, until he [it - earth] receive the early and 
latter rain.

Who is the strong man?

Luke 11:21,22 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are 
in peace: But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome 
him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth 
his spoils.

Today's message talks of a strong man, a capable man, a man who is 
skilled in many things, a man who is well knowledge, a well to do 
self-sufficient man who takes charge of himself and his belongings all 
is at peace and all is well for him.

You may wonder why I gave such an elaborate description of the strong 
man while the scripture in V21 simply says 'strong man'.

If we look at V22 the Greek word translated as spoils comes from the 
word used for prized skin of a hunted animal. So the spoils refer to the 
victories or achievements we have gathered in our lives. When we think 
these are gained by us then we are the protectors of these things, i.e. 
we thing we made a name for ourselves then we are the protectors of our 
name, we have learnt something by our efforts then we are the defender 
of our knowledge, our understanding and so on...

Today's message says when another person comes our way who is greater 
than us then he or she destroys all that we hold precious.

When we think all that we gained is not by our efforts alone but it is 
the Lord who made it available for us, it is not only material things 
but even things like our reputation, our knowledge, our understanding... 
We may have made efforts to learn but when we rely on God to open our 
minds and give us the understanding then we can be assured none will 
come our way to humiliate us in our understanding for our strong man is 
not us but the Lord for our achievement is not ours but His.

We make the Lord our strong man only when we acknowledge the things we 
have as given by Him or gained by His grace, His mercy and His favor. 
When He is our strong man then we need not worry of losing them since He 
is our strong man and there is none greater than Him.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God. In your Word You do not just say 'when we 
follow You, we will know the truth and the truth will set us free', You 
go on to say You will reveal the truth to us. Lord the world does not 
know You for they are not receiving from You but are receiving from 
themselves. They are becoming strong man to themselves. We pray Lord 
they not only acknowledge You in words but in truth...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Mark 3:27 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his 
goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil 
his house.

1 Corinthians 4:9-10
9 For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were 
appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to 
angels, and to men.
10 We are fools for Christ's sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are 
weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.

John 8:31b-32
31 ... If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by 
Jesus Christ.

John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, 
because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he 
dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you 
from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the 
Father, he shall testify of me:

End time signs

Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in 
the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the 
sea and the waves roaring;

When people do not connect related scriptures and study them in total 
(Cross Reference Study) then they come up with crazy understandings. 
Take for example today's message if we read Luke 21:25 by itself we 
start to assume there will be physical manifestations of things in space 
/ sky. But if we read it along with Matthew 24:29 then this changes; 
star are very large bodies in the universe and for many stars to 
literally fall and earth still exist is not possible. All things in the 
universe co balance each other by gravitational force any great 
disturbance can destroy the whole system, like a whole galaxy.

In the Bible many of the things are symbolic, more than literal. Sun 
symbolizes the glory / grace of God, moon symbolizes Men of God and 
stars symbolize people of God. Unlike people thinking of great 
manifestation of things, these events may go unnoticed by those who are 
spiritually dead.

Paul in his letters to the Thessalonians concentrated on explaining the 
end times and we find he does not mention either the sun or the moon for 
he knew it was symbolic.

The Lord's second coming will be like a thief when people are 
spiritually asleep and least expecting. So let us who are of the Lord, 
not look for physical sign but be spiritually alert of the things that 
are happening. The end is not at hand for there is great turmoil 
happening in the world but let us educate our children (and their 
children) for they will face the times of false peace and then the 
sudden coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God. Your Word says You desire an uncircumcised 
heart. Lord, You look more in the inside than on the outside. Lord in 
your second coming too it will be known only to those who are 
spiritually alert at that time. Lord we pray we teach our children and 
their children who are true Christians, to discern things spiritually 
more than to go by the natural senses so that they are not caught asleep...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 24:
28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered 
together.
29 Immediately 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:
30 And 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.

2 Thessalonians 2:2-12
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by 
spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ 
is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, 
except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, 
the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or 
that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, 
shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now 
letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume 
with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of 
his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power 
and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; 
because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they 
should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had 
pleasure in unrighteousness.

Kingship and world peace

Luke 22:29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed 
unto me;

When we read today's scripture it seems to be in future tense that Jesus 
will appoint us as kings over a kingdom, but when we check the tense of 
the verb appoint, it is not in the future but in the present (TVM - 
Present, Middle, Indicative).

We need to understand when God created us He made us kings by giving us 
dominance /rule over all this creation. We had this rule because the 
truth was in us and we were covered with righteousness. But when man 
sinned (ate the fruit of doubt) the truth in him got corrupted and he 
lost his righteousness and thus experienced nakedness. God ousted man 
from accessing Eden because man became a corrupt being and would 
continue to be one forever if he had access to the Tree of Life. God 
wanted man to be restored so as to live eternal life in fullness and not 
as a corrupt being.

Lord Jesus Christ humbled Himself and became man to become a sacrifice 
for us so as to restore us our kingship. Sin made man an enemy of God 
since man was covered with sin and God hates sin. We are forgiven of our 
sins even though God knows we will continue sinning. By His sacrifice He 
made peace between God and man, it is by this peace we receive His 
Spirit (Spirit of the Son) who works in us to battle the corruption by 
bringing us to the truth. So that on Judgment Day we who have the truth 
in us will receive righteousness (Bride's dress) and thus get access 
again to Heaven.

Receiving the truth is a gradual process and even though we are asked to 
become His disciples to know the truth, yet it is not our efforts that 
gain us the truth. Our walk with the Lord and our thirsting for the 
truth only proves our worthiness to hold the truth. No one knows about 
the Kingdom of God by studying scriptures, one can get knowledge but not 
understanding. Understanding of the Kingdom of God comes only as a 
revelation from God. Unless God reveals we will never understand. Truth 
is a gift from the Holy Spirit as righteousness is a gift from the Son.

A few days back via the message of healing of a leper we learnt how even 
before the completion of seven days the priest declared the victim as 
healed, so also even before we are restored our righteousness we are 
called the righteous of God. Similarly even though we do not know the 
complete truth (which we will know before the end comes and this leads 
to the rapture) yet we are called children of light, having the truth in us.

We do not need to wait to the end to be kings, if we are in the Lord and 
are truly walking in His way we are kings today. We will experience 
authority over this world and whatever we command (in line with His 
Will) will come to past. Bible says nature / creation became our enemy 
due to our corruption, so as we walk towards restoration we find nature 
/ creation will not harm us for nature itself awaits our restoration. We 
may look for solutions in the world for global warming and calamities, 
the solution is within us and not out there. Let us restore our kingship 
by lifting the Name (character) of the man Jesus Christ in our lives; 
Jesus as man is called Prince of Kings, Prince of Peace for He leads us 
to our kingship and peace.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God. You Lord created us to rule over this 
creation but due to corruption we lost our kingship and creation became 
our enemy. Satan is the prince of corruption and thus keeps us from our 
kingship. Lord we thank You for putting us on the path of restoration by 
helping us overcome the corruption through your sacrifice and your 
Spirit. We pray we understand the importance of our baptism in You and 
how we can change this world, including the weather, calamities and 
resources by just holding on to You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our 
likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over 
the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and 
over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Genesis 2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were 
not ashamed.

Genesis 3:6-7
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it 
was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she

with her; and he did eat.
7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were 
naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

Genesis 3:11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou 
eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

John 8:31-32
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue 
in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Believing yet unsaved

Luke 22:22, 23 And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but 
woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed! And they began to enquire 
among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing.

A large session of 'Christians' are of the notion Once Saved Always 
Saved (OSAS). They think all they have to do is be sorry for their sins 
and accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and they will 
go to Heaven. Irrespective of how they live their lives yet they feel 
they will go to Heaven. All they need to so is declare themselves 
Christians verbally, attend Church, do charity once a while etc... They 
just twist a few words here and there of scriptures and live worldly 
lives while holding a false hope of Heaven.

Baptism in Jesus Christ is not one time incident, it is a continual 
process. Without repentance there is no baptism and repentance is not 
about being sorry. The Greek word for repentance is a compound word 
which means 'after understanding'. Repentance is more about seeking the 
right more than rejecting the wrong. It requires change in the life and 
lifestyle of a person. Jesus said unless we die we cannot have new life, 
thus we need to die to ourselves and be renewed in Him.

People who believe in OSAS are those who join school in 1st standard and 
think next year they will receive a Graduation certificate!

It is because man does not understand sin and equates it to worldly 
crime that they loose on the right understanding. Worldly crime is 
centered on things (material or life) of others. It is about 
unrightfully taking things or harming them and that is why wrong 
intentions or thoughts without action is not a crime. But in Kingdom of 
God even wrong thoughts is a sin for unlike worldly crime the harm is 
not done unto others but unto oneself.

When we sin we may hurt others (even cause them too to sin) but the one 
who get hurt most by sin is ourselves. Bible uses the perfect word 
'corruption' for consequence of sin and sin is about corrupting the 
image of God in us. Bible says the consequence of sin is death since 
corruption cannot exist before God. Adam and Eve were thrown out of Eden 
not because they had sinned but mainly because they had become corrupt 
beings (sin caused them to become corrupt).

We are considered 'saved' not because we do not sin (which we all do) 
but because we engage in the battle to fight corruption within us. God 
knows by own selves we will never be able to overcome corruption even if 
we receive His Word, and that is why He became a sacrifice so that He 
could make peace between man and God and that man could receive His 
Spirit. It is the Spirit of God that helps us overcome corruption.

We may die just after accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior or 
die after 50 years of doing so what matter is if we are against the 
corruption. We will be considered 'saved' only if we hate the corruption 
within us and work on it. We can be like the thief on the cross who took 
all the courage and overcame worldly sensibility to call an accused 
person dying besides him like himself to be his Lord and Savior. He had 
to courage to say to a dying man 'Lord remember me when You come in 
glory' and because of this Jesus told him 'That day you will be with me 
in paradise'.

Jesus commands us to reach out to others not more to help others but 
more to help our own selves. God can save every one by appearing to them 
but He rarely does that because He wants us to overcome ourselves by 
reaching unto them and that is the Will of the Father.

Paul said it is nothing to live or die for Christ. Today if I am in the 
Lord (doing His Will) and I die (provided I do not take my own life; can 
one ask for eternal life while rejecting the earthly life given by God?) 
I will be assured to go to Heaven, but then Heaven is not a flat place. 
We seek the riches of Heaven even though we dwell on earth because we 
store these riches for us when we reach there (the riches also help us 
here and by using them wisely we can multiple our riches in Heaven). The 
more the riches we store for ourselves in Heaven the closer will we be 
to the Throne of God.

Today's message we read of Jesus telling His disciple that one of them 
would betray Him. These were the people who believed Him, left their 
families and followed Him for nearly 3 years, did great miracles in His 
Name, yet one of them loved money and things of the world greater than 
he loved Christ and thus betrayed Him.

We need to ask ourselves are we like Judas, believing Him, following 
Him, doing miracles yet loving the world and things of the world over 
God, if we do so then are we truly going to Heaven.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Holy and Righteous God. Because You are Holy nothing 
corrupt can dwell before You and because You are Righteous You will not 
compromise your Name. You Lord humbled and became man to help us 
overcome corruption through your Spirit by transforming us from within. 
Only those who are born again from above are considered Sons of God and 
will be reunited to You. Lord we pray we understand the battle is within 
us and to fight it we need to reach out unto others. Help us Lord to do 
your Will...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
2 Peter 2:9-21
9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to 
reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of 
uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, 
they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not 
railing accusation against them before the Lord.
12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, 
speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly 
perish in their own corruption;
13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count 
it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, 
sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; 
beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous 
practices; cursed children:
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following 
the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man's 
voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a 
tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure 
through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were 
clean escaped from them who live in error.
19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of 
corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in 
bondage.
20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through 
the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again 
entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than 
the beginning.
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of 
righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy 
commandment delivered unto them.

Coming of the Kingdom of God

Luke 22:16-18 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, 
until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. And he took the cup, and 
gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves: For I 
say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the 
kingdom of God shall come.

Muslims believe when they go to Jannah / Paradise there they will be 
given round the clock unlimited wine to drink and also they will be 
given food starting with liver of fish [whale] as welcome food. Their 
Jannah is a garden divided by 4 rivers originating from a fountain 
situated at the center [the Taj Mahal garden is based on this design]. 
Along with the food and drinks, the men get to have sex continually with 
up to 72 heavenly women, especially if they are martyrs or have killed 
infidels [unbelievers] in the name of Allah. Men and women will have 
voluptuous bodies but will not have openings to excrete and they will 
not tire doing what they do continually. Allah is seated on a throne 
which is situated on a swamp, from beneath which the Sun rises and sets.

Compare this to the Paradise mentioned in the Bible.

In Genesis, Paradise [which is a Greek word meaning garden] named Eden 
[in Hebrew means Pleasure] was depicted as a garden with a river flowing 
out of it. The river of Eden splits and forms four rivers in a garden 
eastward of Eden in which Adam and Eve were created and put. The 
highlights of the Garden of Eden are the two trees, one the Tree of Life 
and the other Tree of Knowledge of Good and Bad. Adam and Eve had access 
to Eden and could eat [fruits] of all the trees of Eden leaving for the 
Tree of Knowledge of Good and Bad.

Later as we get to Revelation we see Eden is described no longer as a 
garden but more as a city name Jerusalem. Entry to the city is only to 
those who believe in the Lord and do the will of the Father. Jesus said 
in Heaven we would be like the Angels [spirit beings] neither marrying 
or given in marriage [no sex in Heaven]. The ground of the city is 
described as made of 12 layers of different types of gems which 
coincidently are the same twelve gems that were on the breast plate of 
the High Priest [book of Moses] which represented the twelve tribes of 
Israel. Eden has twelve gates made of pearls and twelve pillars 
according to the twelve apostles of Jesus. The pavements of the city are 
of gold. A river flows from beneath the Throne of God and on either side 
of the banks of the river is the Tree of Life with its twelve types of 
leaves / fruits which heal the beings of Heaven. Note now Eden has only 
the Tree of Life [even though it says the tree on either sides of the 
river yet uses singular word for the tree, depicting it as 1 tree only] 
and there is not mentioned of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Bad. 
Paradise has no Sun for the Lord is the light of this city.

We know God is spirit, so also are the Heavenly beings are spirit 
beings. We also know that Heaven is infinite in size to have gates, so 
all the description given in the Bible is symbolic and not literal. We 
see in Islam Mohammed did not understand its symbolism and took it 
literal. Since he took it literal he had problems in attending to 
worldly questions, like what would people eat or drink and how would 
they excrete; also what activity they will do in Paradise, so he coined 
up things according to his worldly / limited understanding.

Today’s message talks of Jesus saying at the Last Supper that He would 
not drink wine again until the coming of the Kingdom of God. This 
scripture got me to think for months and months. It was only after 
understanding the relationship between the Father and Son and also the 
creation of earth [our creation] and Heavens as mentioned in the Bible 
that got me to understand it. The main key to make me open this door of 
understanding was the fact that the name ‘Jerusalem’ is given to the 
Heavenly City.

All I can share in today’s message is Heaven is not going to be a boring 
place. Yes we will be worshiping the Lord unceasingly in Heaven but then 
it would not be like an endless worship gathering. Life will be of 
another level, totally active and challenging; also our testimony in the 
Lord Jesus Christ is that which helps us live that level of life.

[Prayer Starter]
Father God, You are Holy God. Bible says no being has seen You other 
than the Son. Bible also says all things were created by the Son for the 
Son and it is our testimony in the Son that we carry to Heaven and in 
Heaven. Lord we pray You open the minds of the people to understand the 
reason You created us and show them the things You have set for us in 
Heaven...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Genesis 2
8 And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put 
the man whom he had formed.
10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it 
was parted, and became into four heads.
15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden 
to dress it and to keep it.
16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the 
garden thou mayest freely eat:
17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not 
eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to 
know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also 
of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to 
till the ground from whence he was taken.

Revelation 21, 22

Matthew 22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given 
in marriage, but are as angels in heaven.

Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said 
unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren 
that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of 
Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away

Luke 16:16, 17 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time 
the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it. And it 
is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.

My coming out of the Catholic Church happened when I realized the value 
and power of the Word of God. Each and every word of the Bible [in 
principle] had its place in the Truth and none can be changed or 
distorted as per the fancies of man and got away with. It is more 
secured than the most secure currency in the world. It blows the mind 
when one discovers the complexity in the simplicity of the Word. When a 
lay man reads it he draws from it and when a researcher studies it, he 
does not stop drawing from it for years and years.

Today's message talks of the importance of each and every prophecy in 
the Bible and how it has to come to pass from the time it has been 
revealed. Today's message also says it is easier for the Heavens and our 
creation to pass away / fail but for a single prophecy to fail.

We see foolish man tries to be greater than God by editing and 
subtracting from the Word of God. They will take one scripture while 
ignore other scriptures related to it and come up with a distorted 
understanding.

One should realize no scripture can be ignored and each and every 
scripture has to be fulfilled for an understanding to be founded strong. 
The Bible gives a very simple way of understanding the principles of the 
Word of God by understanding the pomegranate fruit. The fruit has 4 to 6 
sections divided by thin membrane and each seed (aril) has its own shape 
and place in the fruit and all together look like a 3D jigsaw puzzle. 
One cannot remove an aril from one place and put it perfectly into 
another place, or turn and fit it in its own place; even if it looks 
like it fits, one will find it out of place on closer observation.

The Bible we have is a collection of 66 books and a library in itself 
(the book of Esther was not part of the earlier OT but was added later 
by the Jews, kind of a Jewish Apocrypha - incidentally the book of 
Isaiah has 66 chapters with the last two 65/66 being a repetition). The 
Bible contains core or prophetic books, chronicles (historical books / 
books that testify the prophecies) and books that explain the Word or 
make us to understand the Word. The whole Bible is primarily divided as 
the books of Moses, Psalms, books of the Prophets and the New Testament 
(the NT books can be further divided into 3 categories). Because of its 
dynamic structure and design every understanding has to have two or more 
scriptures to back it, while having none contradicting it. So even if we 
have 2 or 3 scriptures supporting an understanding and just one 
contradicting it then we need to forsake that understanding.

In the book of Moses the Word of God is called Book of Covenant / Law, 
Proverbs call it instruction for life and in Acts we find the Angels 
state the Word of God as words for Life. God provides complete life so 
every scripture has its importance. The Heavens and our creations are 
upheld by the Word of God so they may fail but the Word will not.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are full of wisdom and your wisdom is boundless. In your wisdom 
You have the Word to be light that shines in man as You gave your Son to 
be light among man. Lord we pray we understand the importance of the 
Word and how in Jesus the Word became flesh, also how the Word is Truth 
and how the truth helps us from corrupted beings to be incorruptible 
beings...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Exodus 28: 33 And upon the skirts of it thou shalt make pomegranates of 
blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the skirts thereof; and 
bells of gold between them round about:

Exodus 24:7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the 
audience of the people: and they said, All that Jehovah hath spoken will 
we do, and be obedient.

Proverbs 6:23 For the commandment is a lamp; And the law is light; And 
reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

Acts 5:20 Go ye, and stand and speak in the temple to the people all 
the words of this Life.

Matthew 18:16 But if he hear thee not, take with thee one or two more, 
that at the mouth of two witnesses or three every word may be established.

Revelation 22:18-19
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy 
of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto 
him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this 
prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out 
of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Importance of Being Connected

Ezekiel 37:17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they 
shall become one in thine hand.

Although to be a Christian is a personal choice yet to live a life of a 
Christian one cannot do it as an individual.

We say God is love, but can God be love if He was alone? To love one 
need to give unto someone else. Similarly most of the Fruits of the Holy 
Spirit, a very important aspect of being Christian, even though are 
individually developed yet they are dependent / rooted on connecting 
unto others. The same is the case of Callings, can an Evangelist or 
Teacher or Prophet or any other qualify as one if he or she does not 
evangelize, teach or prophesy to another?

Let us understand one cannot lock oneself in a room and become a 
Christian. One needs to reach out unto others. We need to save others 
then only we are said to be doing the Will of the Father and thus get 
qualified to enter the Kingdom of God.

In today's message the word join is in Hebrew tense Piel which means 
intentional, so our joining in not necessary physical, we do not 
necessarily need to socialize; what is important is spiritually are we 
connected, we need to be of one heart, one mind and one belief.

Let us put our individual desires aside and work for the desires of our 
Heavenly Family. When we enter Heaven all that we are in this world we 
leave behind including all our material things and worldly name, also 
our worldly relationships. In Heaven we will be just one family having 
no mother, father, son, daughter, sister, uncle, aunt, granny, 
grandfather etc. we will be just brethren of each other and will have 
God as our Father.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are One God yet we know You are Father, You are Son and His 
Spirit. Lord we pray we too be one on earth like You are one so that we 
prepare for the day when we will be one not only with each other but one 
with You in Heaven. Lord teach us to reach out to one another and not to 
live a selfish lives...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
John 17:5-11

Revelation 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty 
and the Lamb [Arinion - man] are the temple of it.

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

Blessed, Strong in Faith and Holy

Luke 1:45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a 
performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

Whenever a Catholic is told anything about Mary they get very 
sentimental. They are programmed to believe that Believers / Protestants 
hate Mary and the reason is they glorify Mary beyond the scriptures 
while Believers follow the scriptures.

Let us take 3 attributes given to Mary one she is called 'Blessed', she 
is considered an example of strong faith and she is considered holy / 
without sin.

Like I stated before to study words connected to the Kingdom of God even 
in NT we need go its Hebrew words since the Jews spoke Hebrew amongst 
themselves, but to study the grammar we stick to the Greek language.

The Hebrew word for bless is 'barak' and people think when they bless 
someone they add good things to that person, that is not the case. We 
need to understand God has already provided everything we need 
throughout our lifetime even before we are born in our mother's womb. 
The word barak / bless is also translated 4 times as curse like in the 
book of Job 1:11, 2:9. Bless does not mean to add but means to quicken. 
Like faith opens the doors for us to receive that which is already given 
(i.e. healing) similarly blessing someone quickens or delays the 
receiving. Bless in negative is translated as curse since it 
concentrates on quickening the negative things like testing in negative 
is temptation (in NT Greek testing and temptation come from the same 
word also the other Hebrew word for curse qalal comes from the root word 
to be swift). We see in OT when they blessed a person they spoke the 
blessing, specifying what they were quickening. Also in NT it says bless 
your enemy not curse, specifying our intentions need to be good while 
leaving both in God's hands.

Mary is called blessed for she was the chosen amongst all women to be 
the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ. God used her womb to bring forth 
our savior. That does not means she was holier than others. She was a 
devote Jew and average Jew, nor bad nor extraordinary good.

Coming to her faith; she was not a very strong person of faith nor very 
weak. She needed to be encouraged that is why when the Angel Gabriel 
spoke to her he shared the testimony of her cousin Elizabeth first. It 
is only after that Mary accepted to be the mother of the Savior of the 
world. If she was strong in faith she would not have required a 
testimony. Also at times we see she was shaken in her faith like Mark 
3:31 when people stated Jesus had an evil spirit v30.

People think since Jesus was without sin thus Mary had to be without sin 
to give birth to Jesus. This is because they think sin as a disease of 
the flesh. Sin is corruption of the spirit; it is not contagious to be 
transferred by physical touch or by body fluids like AIDS. So Jesus 
being without blemish had nothing to do with Mary being a sinner (she 
need a savior herself).

It is also a misconception that the ovary of Mary was fertilized by the 
power of the Holy Spirit for Jesus to be born, that would become 
equivalent to sex. Scripture says from the womb of a virgin the Savior 
would come forth. It also says the child is born, the son is given; it 
does not say son is born. It is because of this reason that Jesus 
addressed Mary as woman and also as mother. In today's medical 
terminology it would be called a surrogate birth. By this the curse / 
sin nature of Adam was not transferred too Jesus since it is passed from 
father to child via the mother. So indeed Mary was the mother of Jesus 
and she was not free from sin but yet Jesus was born without sin nature, 
so He was not another Adam but was second Adam/ Man (OT uses the word 
Iysh / Ishi not Adam for Him even though both mean man). All mankind had 
sinned and become corrupt (in spirit) yet Jesus born of man and was yet 
without blemish.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are a Holy God. You made man lower than the Angels for a 
purpose that is to be a light in the darkness. When man sinned You 
allowed it for You desired man overcome sin and be an example for all 
the beings of Heaven. You make man as the Angels from a mere being, like 
a worm / caterpillar becomes a butterfly. Lord we pray we understand 
this transformation in spirit...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Job 1:11 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and 
he will curse thee to thy face.

Job 2:9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine 
integrity? curse [barak] God, and die.

Mark 3:30-31
30 because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
31 And there come his mother and his brethren; and, standing without, 
they sent unto him, calling him.

Exodus 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: 
for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the 
fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them 
that hate me;

John 2:4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman [Mary], what have I to do with 
thee? mine hour is not yet come.

Matthew 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring 
forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being 
interpreted is, God with us.

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a 
virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the 
government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called 
Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The 
Prince of Peace.

Hosea 2:16 And it shall be at that day, saith the LORD, that thou shalt 
call me Ishi [man]; and shalt call me no more Baali [unknown God].

John the Witness

John 1:19 And this is the witness of John, when the Jews sent unto him
from Jerusalem priests and Levites to ask him, Who art thou?

Just 2 days back at an exhibition, as part of a ministry, I was
distributing Bibles (NT) at a stall. As I was giving the NT there was an
elderly couple whom I was talking to and they turned out to be seasoned
Jehovah's Witnesses. When I told them that Yahweh / Jehovah was Christ
they did not like it. I even explained to them the word Yahweh is YHWH
and as per Hebrew ideogram means 'Behold the Hand Behold the Nail' which
points to Christ before He became man. These people called themselves
Jehovah's Witnesses thinking they are witnessing God the Father and not
Jesus. They consider Jesus as a special Son of God / Archangel but not
God. Like a Muslim they fail to digest the fact God humbled and became
human to die. They ask questions like Muslims, 'Can God die?'. They are
more Muslims than Christians.

In today's message we see John the Baptist (Jesus' second cousin) was
asked if he was Christ and he said 'no' but said he came to witness the
arrival of Christ / Lord. He was also asked if he was Elijah and to that
too he said he is not. But when Jesus was asked if John was indeed
Elijah, Jesus did not deny and accepted that he was indeed Elijah
(Matthew 17:10-13/ Matthew 11:14). John himself was not aware he was
Elijah. He lived a life of tough penance and repentance in the desert
even though he in his life time as John had not done any grave misdeed.
In the NT we see the only Prophet of the OT Jesus rebuked was Elijah
even though he is considered one of the greatest Prophets (Luke
9:54-56). We need to understand the more is given unto the more is
expected of us by God.

The term incarnation can be applied to John for he was Elijah come as
another being. People try to apply the term incarnation to Jesus Christ
which does not fit correctly. The term incarnation has two meanings, one
is a deity that takes a form of a human in a body of flesh and the
second is a human or earthly being takes form of another earthly being.

Yes the Lord Jesus Christ is God who came as man but He had to do a
process in between to come as man and that is as given in Philippians,
that He humbled Himself. 'Humbled Himself' meant He gave up His glory as
God before He became His creation, so even though in spirit Lord Jesus
Christ is God yet He does not carry His God powers but did carry the God
nature. So as man He is 100% man and being one of us is our cornerstone
and our sacrificial offering for our sins. It is only when we understand
His humbling that we understand how He became a sacrifice for the
foundation of creation even though He died on the crucifix just about
2000 years back.

In the OT we have great Men of God who did amazing things to witness the
Lord, but they still did not know God as you and I are privileged to be
able to know. Lord Jesus Christ as man on earth did greater things than
them yet He said we would do greater things than Him. The Men of God in
the OT received the Holy Spirit as per their mission and many a times
they manifested the Holy Spirit only for a period of time. We on the
other hand by default have the promise of the Holy Spirit by our baptism
in Christ and by our baptism in the Holy Spirit we continually can
manifest His power in us.

Let us realize we can witness the Lord more than any OT Man of God or
even the disciples of the NT. The privileges we have they did not. We
need to also realize those coming into this world after us will have
more privileges than us, so let us build them not as good as us but to
be better than us.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are God and are a Holy God. When man sinned he and his wife
were removed access from Heaven. You Lord humbled yourself and became
man so that You could make a way for our return to heaven since there
was no way. You also became an example by overcoming this world as a
mere man. You gave us your Spirit to help us to also overcome one day.
Lord we pray we understand the importance to help each other and be one
body so that one day we overcome like You did and we hear a voice 'IT IS
SUFFICENT, COME UP'...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

John 1:19-23
19 And this is the witness of John, when the Jews sent unto him from
Jerusalem priests and Levites to ask him, Who art thou?
20 And he confessed, and denied not; and he confessed, I am not the Christ.
21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elijah? And he saith, I am
not. Art thou the prophet? And he answered, No.
22 They said therefore unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an
answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make
straight the way of the Lord, as said Isaiah the prophet.

Luke 1:17 And he shall go before his face in the spirit and power of
Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the
disobedient to walk in the wisdom of the just; to make ready for the
Lord a people prepared for him.

Matthew 17:10-13
10 And his disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that
Elijah must first come?
11 And he answered and said, Elijah indeed cometh, and shall restore
all things:
12 but I say into you, that Elijah is come already, and they knew him
not, but did unto him whatsoever they would. Even so shall the Son of
man also suffer of them.
13 Then understood the disciples that he spake unto them of John the
Baptist.

Matthew 11:14 And if ye are willing to receive it, this is Elijah, that
is to come.

Luke 9:54-56
54 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord,
wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume
them, even as Elias [Elijah] did?
55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner
of spirit ye are of.
56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save
them. And they went to another village.

Philippians 2:6-8
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal
with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a
servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became
obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with
the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

God never forgets

Acts 10:4 And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is
it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up
for a memorial before God.

In today's message we read about Cornelius who was captain of Italian
band of the Roman Army. Band does not mean a musical band. The Roman
Army was divided into legions and each legion would have about 5 bands,
each band [cohort] would consist of about a thousand people having a
chief captain called tribune or marshal as its head and each band was
further divided into groups of hundred which had a captain [centurion]
over them. Cornelius was captain of a hundred soldiers. The band
Cornelius was part of consisted of people mainly from Italy that is why
it was called the Italian band. So most probably Cornelius was himself
an Italian.

One may think Cornelius being an Italian and not a Jew was worshipping
other gods but was devout so God answered him. One should understand
when one prayers to idols or false gods that prayers are like water on a
ducks back, they do not get answered nor go unto the Lord. The Lord may
answer due to the immense suffering of that person but not his or her
prayers. The Lord also at time answers or does miracles between them to
test if His people follow His Word or follow signs and wonders.

In short people who do not know God and pray to unknown god/s require to
do so over long periods with cries and suffering for God to possibly
answer them out of pity. But those who know God well get their prayers
answered instantly. Growing in faith is to know God more.

Cornelius was among the few who were not Jews yet worshiped the Jewish
God. Book of Acts also records an Ethiopian Eunuch, while the Gospels
record of another Roman Centurion that were of this category.

God does not have any religion. Christianity is not a religion but are
people who have chosen Jesus Christ as their path to be saved from
suffering their sins and to go to Heaven so as to receive eternal life.
Christians also have the advantage of getting their prayer answered
quickly for Jesus intercedes to their prayer. Those who are not
Christians and yet worship God may take time to get their prayer
answered like in today's message, the Lord says He answers because He
remembers all their requests and sees their good doings, He delays but
does answer.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty, Omnipresent God. Not only prayers but even the
thoughts of man are not hidden from You. You acknowledge them that
acknowledge You but You being a merciful God at times reach out even to
those who are far from You. We pray Lord we be not like the Centurion
Cornelius who needed to struggle to reach You by his devoutness and good
works but be like the Centurion of the Gospel who received by
demonstrated of faith...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Acts 10:1-4
1 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of
the band called the Italian band,
2 A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave
much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway.
3 He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel
of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius.
4 And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord?
And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a
memorial before God.

Acts 8:27-28
27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of
great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the
charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,
28 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.

Matthew 8:5-10
5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a
centurion, beseeching him,
6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy,
grievously tormented.
7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou
shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant
shall be healed.
9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say
to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and
to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed,
Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

Completing our job

Matthew 26:1 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these
sayings, he said unto his disciples,

Jesus as a person was multidimensional He was Son of Man, Christ and
also God the Son (Lord), these are a few aspects that are widely known
of Him. As man He was without corruption /sin, had the perfect image of
the Father in Him so was called Son of God. People say He was 50% man
and 50% God because they know only 2 aspects of Him - man and God. They
do not understand the term Christ and are not aware of His other
aspects. If they know they would then have to divide that further.

He is 100% God and as man He is 100% man. He said He is the 'I AM' who
spoke to Moses and Abraham before He became Son of Man. He also says the
Father chose Him to sit on the Judgment Seat to judge man because He is
the Son of Man, if He is not 100% man He would not have been qualified
to sit on the Judgment Seat to Judge all Mankind (all those who believed
in Him from Noah to the end) when He comes again.

As man He did not use His God powers since He is our cornerstone (our
example). All that He did was according to the time He dwelled in and He
did it through the power of the Holy Spirit whom we too now receive;
that is why He said we would greater things for the same Spirit we too
receive and the times we dwell in would call for greater manifestation
of God's glory.

People think He defeats Satan and kills Satan; they are wrong, Jesus
Christ leads us to destroy the plans of Satan against us and gets Satan
to receive the punishment set for him. It is we who crush the head of
Stan with the help of the Son of Man Jesus Christ.

Just of late I realized in scriptures as humans we can be killed or die
natural death any time but as spirit beings or even the Angels [both
holy and the unholy] do not die any time and cannot be killed, all will
live their spirit life; only those who have access to Heaven (Upper
Heavens where the Tree of Life is) have the option of eternal life. The
Tree of Life is not a magical tree and even a natural tree. The term
helps us understand that like natural tree which takes the nourishment
from the ground and by the light of the Sun produces leaves and fruits
so does Tree of Life from the 12 gems (symbolic) of which Heaven is made
of and by the plans of God (light of God) gives new life (recharge of
life as and when needed). So if we do not go to Heaven then we need to
suffer the corruption within us till the end of our spirit lives (which
by the way is equivalent to thousands of earthly years). If we
understand this then the true understanding of Resurrection [which means
'raised'] comes alive in us; even though we do not die spiritually yet
we defeat death.

In today's scripture Lord Jesus Christ as Son of Man finished giving the
teachings which He was commissioned to give and then He set for His
sacrifice and other things.

Today the Lord is telling us like Jesus we too are multidimensional
beings, we are not God the Son but we are set to be little Christs
(Christians), Sons of God and much more. So are we aware of our mission
and how much of our mission have we yet achieved? Can it be written
sometime in the future that we finished that we were sent to do?

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You alone are God and there is no other God than You, You are One.
We pray Lord we learn more of You and understand You more. You Lord sent
your Son who humbled Himself became man, made way for us to again become
Sons of God and have access to Heaven and the Tree of Life so that we
can live eternally. We pray like Jesus we too may see a day when it can
be said we have finished the tasks set for us in the Kingdom of God...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before
Abraham was, I am.

Matthew 16:28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which
shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his
kingdom.

John 5: 26-27
26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son
to have life in himself;
27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is
the Son of man.

John 7:6 Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your
time is alway ready.

Revelation 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and
the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the
earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,

John 16:33 These 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.

2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them
down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved
unto judgment;

All will never understand

Acts 28:25 And when they agreed not among themselves, they departed,
after that Paul had spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Ghost by Esaias
the prophet unto our fathers,

We have seen time and again people are accused of becoming a stumbling
block when they say something that shakes another person spiritually.
The word 'stumbling block' is more like a curse word. What is
interesting is that they do not realize Jesus Christ who is referred to
as the chief corner stone is also called the greatest stumbling block /
rock of offence to mankind.

In today's message notes an event where people called Paul to enlighten
them about scriptures and we see some of them accepted it and others did
not so the writer Luke quotes Isaiah 6:9-10. In a similar situation in
the Gospels Mark quotes Isaiah 29:13.

Many a time people ask me how is it that I get so many revelations from
God and I tell them because I truly seek God with all my heart. When I
tell them this many feel offended thinking that I am trying show I am a
holier person than them. They do not realize in the Bible David had more
spiritual problems than his son Solomon, David did more mistakes than
Solomon yet it the Bible calls David as a man according to the heart of
God and not Solomon.

We need to understand one sin or many sins we are yet sinners. What is
important is are we working towards overcoming our sinful nature or are
we comfortable with it. What is important is have we given up on God or
not. We see even through the worst situations David stuck on to the Lord
and on the other hand Solomon even in simple situation gave up on the
Lord by worshiping other gods.

You may be a person struggling in some areas in your life (like me) yet
if you are passionate about Him, not restricting Him only to certain
areas of your life then the favor of the Lord will always be upon you,
He will never forsake you and people will see His Hand over you.

If we are preaching the 'Word of God' and everyone is pleased with it
then there is a problem. We need to understand unless everyone is
perfect the Word will never please all. It is a Living Word that does
activity like demolishing illegal understandings, it separates the
carnal nature from the spirit, destroys darkness... these things do not
please people but shake people and their lives.

Understand as a preacher if everyone loves your preaching than you need
to go back to the Bible and check if you are indeed preaching it.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Light and your Word Lord is Light and Light destroys
darkness. Your Word Lord is living and works in the hearts of man. Man's
heart is not right thus your Word shakes up, corrects man's heart and
does not please it. We pray Lord that the Church stops pleasing and
entertaining people in your name, leading them to destruction. We pray
people preach fearlessly as led by your Spirit, not looking at man for
their provision but only unto You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Mark 7:6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of
you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their
lips, but their heart is far from me.

Acts 28:23-27

1 Peter 2:6-8
6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in
Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him
shall not be confounded.
7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which
be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is
made the head of the corner,
8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which
stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.

Isaiah 6:9-10
9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but
understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and
shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their
ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

Isaiah 29:13-15
13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with
their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their
heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this
people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their
wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall
be hid.
15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD,
and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who
knoweth us?

Mark 7:6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of
you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their
lips, but their heart is far from me.

The Evil Doers in Office

Micah 2:4,5 In that day shall one take up a parable against you, and
lament with a doleful lamentation, and say, We be utterly spoiled: he
hath changed the portion of my people: how hath he removed it from me!
turning away he hath divided our fields. Therefore thou shalt have none
that shall cast a cord by lot in the congregation of the LORD.

Today's message is so apt for our time. It was given when the Assyrians
persecuted / did evil against the Jews. In the Bible Assyria which means
'step' and symbolizes people who pursue progress / worldly prosperity.
Judah (Jew) meaning 'praise' and symbolizes people who worshiped the Lord.

Today's message is a prophecy and talks of worldly people who are in
power, who device evil in the shadow and then bring them upon the people
slowly. In India we are facing this for people who are hold government
positions no doubt are doing a good job with concerned to prosperity but
they hold a deep intentions to destroy other beliefs, and Christianity
is one of them.

Today's message is a prophecy against them that the Lord will divide
them. Their greatest strength is their unity and this strength will be
broken.

They will also land up in cases which will be difficult to come out of.
They pride will turn to shame. The time may become a time of turmoil for
these things will happen to them.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Father unto your people. Your people Lord at times
experience trouble but You Lord do not remove your eyes off them. You
Lord do not let problems more than that which your people can bear. Lord
we know at the right moment You move against the enemy of your people
for You make an exhibition the calamities on evil doers. Lord we thank
You for this message and give glory to You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Micah 2:1-4
1 Woe to them that devise iniquity, and work evil upon their beds! when
the morning is light, they practise it, because it is in the power of
their hand.
2 And they covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and
take them away: so they oppress a man and his house, even a man and his
heritage.
3 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, against this family do I
devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks; neither shall
ye go haughtily: for this time is evil.
4 In that day shall one take up a parable against you, and lament with
a doleful lamentation, and say, We be utterly spoiled: he hath changed
the portion of my people: how hath he removed it from me! turning away
he hath divided our

1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation [testing] taken you but
such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you
to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also
make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Receive that which is set before you

Luke 10:8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat
such things as are set before you:

Bible says people do not receive because they do not ask so now
Christians have become experts in asking and thus we find them living in
abundance. Many of the Evangelist and leaders lead them in the asking
business for they too ask of the people every time.

What is interesting is the Bible tells us to ask the Father but we have
changed the direction and are asking the people. We find most of the
Churches or at meetings there would be a special period set for the
asking and convincing the people to give.

In today's scripture we see Jesus Christ tells the seventy sent on a
mission as they enter the city to receive whatsoever is set before them.
It may be the best, or ordinary or even bad yet He told them to receive
it with a thankful heart.

It is very sad when one gives a leader a gift and then realizes that
person expects a premium brand in the same, so discards what you give
aside. People are so carnal in nature that they bring these fleshly
desires into the House of the Lord like the Israelites bought idols into
the Temple of the Lord.

Something new I learnt today is the Greek word for city comes from the
same word as war. Even in Hebrew the word for bread comes from the word
battle.

City without people is called a ghost town. So people are the most
important part of a city.

People and God's Word are always at battle. Both will cause you to
battle with your principles. The Word of God causes you to separate your
nature [bone] from your spirit [marrow] while people will cause you
[your spirit] to cling to your nature.

Let us not look at people even though they are used as vessels to serve
our provision. Let us always remember it is the Lord who provides so if
we need let us ask of Him. Whatever He provides is the best for us, also
always remember to thank Him for all that He provides. If we do that
then we will be like those seventy who on their return testified they
never lacked in their natural needs and spiritually received abundantly.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You alone are our Father. You alone are our Creator, Provider and
Protector. Let us always remember Lord that all provision comes from You
and people are just vessels You use to provide for us. As we bless those
vessels let us also learn to thank You alone for our every little
provision...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Luke 10:1-17

Matthew 23:9 And call no man your father [meaning creator, provider,
protector] upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

Matthew 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer,
believing, ye shall receive.

James 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may
consume it upon your lusts.

1 John 3:22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep
his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

Forgiveness of our sins

Luke 11: 4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that
is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from
evil.

Before as a Catholic I used to follow the sacrament of confession. This
is also called the sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation. In this
sacrament a person knelt before a priest sitting behind a screen. They
are made to tell the priest all their sins since their last confession
(they need to say approximately how long back it was) after rattling a
prayer “Bless me father, for I have sinned. My last confession was…” and
after confessing the sins, again there was a prayer that needed to be
narrated while the priest narrated his. Then the priest would give a
task as penance which could usually be a prayer or 2 to be said a number
of times or even a task to do [this happens usually in cities in other
places the penance are more serious in nature], this punishment or
penance is necessary according to them for reconciliation. This was not
only for the laymen even the clergy had penances which at time are very
drastic; there are records of Popes who whipped themselves as penance.
If we see in the Bible, neither Jesus nor God did anything like this and
this has been imported from pagan beliefs.

In the Bible before Jesus came as man only the Lord could forgive sins
and Man of God would intervene on behalf of God. So forgiveness was
between God and man. But later Jesus who is God the Son humbled Himself
as Son of God and became Son of Man having authority as man forgave sins
and this authority He gave to His disciples too. So today if we truly
are His disciple we too can forgive sins, it means we stand as
ambassadors of God and forgive in His name.

People do not understand what forgiveness is all because they equal it
to a crime and a punishment given to restore honor, thus Catholics who
do not truly believe in the sacrifice of Jesus take a symbolic penance
as punishment, on the other hand we have Believers who always substitute
the suffering which Jesus received on the Cross as their punishment and
claim forgiveness.

Bible does say Jesus took away all our sins on Himself and we have
received forgiveness. Paul describes sin more perfectly as corruption.
Jesus has forgiven us our sins means He put us on the track of
restoration. Today our destination is not towards payment of our sins /
suffering corruption but towards complete restoration.

In the Bible forgiveness is preceded with repentance, without repentance
there is no receiving of forgiveness. I can forgive a person but for
that person to receive forgiveness that person needs to repent first.
The Greek word for repentance is 'metanoeo', it is a compound word, made
of two words, 'with' and 'understanding'. Repentance is less of being
sorry but more of correction. It is only when a person decides to
correct oneself that the person is considered as truly repenting.

The word 'forgive' in the prayer Our Father is in the aorist tense, it
is unlike the tenses in English, it is past, present and future together
so it means God forgave, forgives and will forgive. That means even if I
sin tomorrow God has already forgiven but that does not mean I have a
license to sin since if I am not on that path of repentance/correction I
will not receive. The day we stop repenting we land up rejecting the
sacrifice of Jesus and if we do that we have no hope.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are a Merciful God while You are also an Righteous God. Lord
Jesus You paid the punishment of our sins once for all and overcame by
your resurrection. Lord You gave us your Spirit who takes us on the path
of restoration; we pray we do not grieve the Spirit for there is no
forgiveness after that. We pray we always remain on the path of
repentance so that we always receive forgiveness...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 9:1-8
1 And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city.
2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a
bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son,
be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.
3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man
blasphemeth.
4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in
your hearts?
5 For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say,
Arise, and walk?
6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to
forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up
thy bed, and go unto thine house.
7 And he arose, and departed to his house.
8 But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified God,
which had given such power unto men.

Luke 9:1 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them
power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

die not: and it shall be a statute for ever to them, even to him and to

also ought to wash one another's feet.

Netanyahu Issues Stern Warning to Iran – Cannot Allow Development Of Nuclear Weapon
APRIL 22, 2017
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Friday in an exclusive Fox News interview that the world cannot allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. Netanyahu theorized to Sean Hannity about what the outcome would be in a confrontation where an “Islamist terror state” has nuclear weapons. He warned of irreparable damage and said “we cannot allow that to happen.” “If we are resolute in our policies, we can make sure that doesn’t happen,” he said on “Hannity.” Netanyahu made the comment a day after President Trump ripped into the deal struck by Iran, the U.S.
and other world powers in 2015 and said “it shouldn’t have been signed.” Yet he pointedly stopped sort of telegraphing whether or not the U.S. would stay in.”They are not living up to the spirit of the agreement, I can tell you that,” Trump said of the Iranians, though he did not mention any specific violations. Earlier this week, the administration certified to Congress than Iran was complying — at least technically — with the terms of the deal, clearing the way for Iran to continue enjoying sanctions relief in the near term.

Lameness and quicksand

Acts 27: 16, 17 And running under a certain island which is called
Clauda, we had much work to come by the boat: Which when they had taken
up, they used helps, undergirding the ship; and, fearing lest they
should fall into the quicksands, strake sail, and so were driven.

In the Bible names having meanings were not by coincident, not only
names of people but even of places had a spiritual revelation in them.
Let me take the names of the sons of Jacob for instance:-

Reuben: Behold, A Son is born to us
Simon: One who hears
Levi: Attached
Judah: Praise the Lord
Dan: He judged
Naphtali : My Struggle
Gad: Good fortune
Asher: Happiness
Issachar: Reward
Zebulun: Honour
Joseph: Add to my family
Benjamin: Son of righteousness

So when we put them in a sentence it becomes:-
BEHOLD, A SON IS BORN UNTO US, ONE WHO HEARS US AND BECAME ATTACHED UNTO
US. PRAISE THE LORD. HE JUDGED OUR STRUGGLES AND BROUGHT US GOOD
FORTUNE, HAPPINESS, REWARD, HONOR; HE ADDED US TO HIS FAMILY AND CALLED
US THE SONS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS._

The name Clauda in Greek means lame and we read quicksand being located
near the island. Spiritually also lameness co-associates with quicksand.
People think reaching out to others who are lost and bringing them back
to Christ is a work Lord has set for a few.

Let me take a scripture Matthew 4:19 where Jesus says 'follow me and I
will make you fishers of men'. Now let us take it reverse - If we are
fishing men then we are following Jesus. That means those who do not do
the mission [Will of the Father] that Christ gave us are not followers
of Christ and these may not enter Heaven.

The moment we do not do the mission for a short period we start to make
excuses and as we make excuses justifying our wrong and we start to fall
deeper into rejecting the mission. This is the spiritual quicksand which
destroys us.

In today's message the Lord is telling us to be aware of this spiritual
island called lameness and the quicksand that surrounds it.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God. You Lord do not need minuscule worm like man
for the works of your Kingdom, yet You call him for a great mission.
Lord we pray we realize this mission transforms us and makes us
spiritually into a new being. We also pray when we go out to minister to
others we may realize we are not doing that person a favor but we are
doing ourselves a favor. May we also realize we, ourselves are greater
benefactors of working in your Kingdom. May we always be thankful for
the harvest You bless us with...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you
fishers of men.

Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come
after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my
judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the
Father which hath sent me.

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter
into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father
which is in heaven.

Matthew 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also
deny before my Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 12:50 For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in
heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Measure of the Holy Spirit

John 3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God
giveth not the Spirit by measure

Today's message is a very important aspect to understand. In today's
message we read about God not giving the Holy Spirit by measure yet we
read only Jesus had the fullness of the Holy Spirit.

There are two aspects we need to understand here one is although the
Holy Spirit is one yet there are 7 forms of the Holy Spirit and the
functioning of the Church is based on the 7 Spirits of the Holy Spirit
for they are related to Callings. The candle stick with its seven
branches kept in the Tabernacle represented the Holy Spirit. The seven
Spirits of the Holy Spirit are listed in Isaiah 11:1,2 and the Callings
are in the respective hierarchy [ we are sadly following the Nicolaitan
system followed by the Catholic Church, a modification of the old Jewish
system].

Spirit of Lord - Christ the Head
Spirit of Skill - Apostle
Spirit of Discernment - Prophet
Spirit of Counsel - Teacher
Spirit of Power - Evangelist
Spirit of Knowledge - Bishop
Spirit of Fear of the Lord - Healer

Jesus said He is the vine and we are His branches in John 15:5. Since we
branch out form Him thus we have various Callings. That does not mean we
receive only the Spirit according the Calling. All of us initially
receive the Spirit of Truth / Counsel so as to enable us to understand
the Word of God and preach it [perform the mission we all are given],
yet all do not have the Calling of a Teacher.

The Holy Spirit is given to all but we do not receive all of the Holy
Spirit, it is as we grow we receive more of the Holy Spirit, this more
relates not only to quantity but also the other Spirits of the Holy
Spirit. Paul says we can do all things when we are in Christ [grow in
Him], it means a Teacher can also prophecy and heal or Prophet can
teach; but then a specialist is a specialist and others cannot beat the
one in that Calling. As a Teacher I can prophecy but then I cannot beat
a Prophet at this.

Calling should be also understood as a student taken a field of studies,
and one does not become a doctorate in that field on the first day of
joining school / college, the person needs to grow slowly and gradually.
Thus hierarchy of Calling is not the only bases of seniority. We also
need to remember the higher the calling the more they serve those below
in other words the more senior mean greater servant.

To understand more on our growing and receiving more of the Holy Spirit;
although all of His Spirit is available to all who are baptized in
Christ, yet the receiving depends on the size of the vessel. Smaller
vessels receive less and larger vessels receive more; by our surrender
and obedience we enlarge our vessel, thus our receiving more of the Holy
Spirit grows.

Mary was filled with the Holy Spirit that does not equate her to Jesus
for the size of the receiving vessel matters. In the initial stages we
can be overwhelmed easily by the Holy Spirit but as we grow we need to
receive more of Him to be overwhelmed.

As Believers who are baptized in Christ let us not think by just
receiving the Spirit of Truth it is sufficient. We need to receive more
of Him and grow in completeness of His Spirit.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Spirit and You humbled yourself and came as man. Lord, You
are light and as light refracts in seven beautiful colors You set your
glory among man. You said not by my power or by my might but by my
Spirit. Lord we pray we understand the importance of your Spirit for
without your Spirit we cannot overcome and the Church as a body needs to
be founded and operate in your Spirit...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Revelation 4:5 And out of the throne proceed lightnings and voices and
thunders. And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne,
which are the seven Spirits of God;

Isaiah 11:1-2
1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a
Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2 And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom
[skill] and understanding [discernment], the spirit of counsel and might
[power], the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me,
and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can
do nothing.

James 3:1 Be not many of you teachers [in Greek teacher and master is
the same word 'didaskalos'], my brethren, knowing that we shall receive
heavier judgment.

Colossians 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all
fulness dwell;

Eating and drinking after resurrection

Luke 22:16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until
it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

In Islam they believe when they enter Jannat (Paradise) the men will be
seated in gardens and will be served wine non-stop by very young,
temptress, beautiful women. Also there will be 70+ of these beautiful
women to gratify the sexual desires of each man. They will eat and drink
whole day and night but will not excrete for they will not have exit
systems in their bodies. They had to come up with the later part since
the scene is set in a garden and there cannot be toilets in a garden
that is heavenly. This is the output when corrupt human mentality
applied to spiritual matter.

In Christianity things are not far off i.e. Christians talk of the grand
wedding banquet in Heaven when we all enter Heaven. See any picture made
of this event and one would see roasted turkey, lobsters, chicken, lamb,
fish, wine... name it all that one desires to eat and drink on earth
will be there in Heaven.

People used to call me 'throne to the flesh' since the truth I used to
reveal would destroy all their fleshy desires. Let me share one today.

If we read in Genesis after God made man he was instructed to eat
(fruit) of the trees so he was a vegetarian. Man became non-vegetarian
only after he sinned and had to eat of the sacrifice which was killed to
clothe him. This was symbolic to us accepting the Paschal sacrifice. So
when man overcomes sin, will man still be non-vegetarian? NO. So now in
Heaven this banquet will be pure veg banquet. Now ask how many would be
interested to go to Heaven to eat veg for eternity?

Man is very carnal in nature; his flesh controls him more than his
spirit. After resurrection they feel they will have a new type of
(uncorrupt) flesh. Jesus said after resurrection we will be like the
Angels. Angels are spiritual beings; they can take form of human flesh
for there is a common ground between them and us. Angels do not take
form of animals or things like Hindu mythology and mythology of any
other religion.

Please understand Heaven is not an earthly resort floating in space.
Heaven is a spirit place. This may seem complicated to understand or
imagine but when one understands the meaning of spirit then it becomes
even more incomprehensible to imagine Heaven.

Jesus as man was the only human who resurrects in the flesh for He did
not sin and His flesh did not see corruption as He lived His natural
human lifetime on earth.

We all sin so our flesh goes to dust but our spirit lives. We do not get
a new flesh but become like Angels which are spirit beings. If anyone
has seen Angels would understand what they are [ones in drawings of men
and women with wings are imagination of little children]. Angels do not
eat things like we do on earth, in Heaven they eat spiritual food that
we as human can imagine as coming from Heavenly trees. Angels also do
not have genders like we humans in flesh do. They are called Sons of God
not because they are male but because they have the image of God the
Father in them. Jesus is God the Son, who became Son of God and became
Son of Man so that sons of man would again become Sons of God and get
entry to Heaven to live eternally.

We people have no idea of the things that is set for us in Heaven. Our
carnal mind and our carnal desires restrict us from understanding it. It
is only when we overcome it will we be set free from this corrupt world.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Spirit and You dwell in Heaven which is a spirit place.
Your Word says only those who are led by the Holy Spirit become Sons of
God and they alone can enter Heaven. We pray Lord we overcome our flesh
and our fleshy desires. Let not this corruption misled us and led us to
destruction and vanity...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Genesis 2:16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree
of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

Genesis 3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats
of skins, and clothed them.

Genesis 4:4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock
and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his
offering:

Matthew 22:29-30
29 But Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the
scriptures, nor the power of God.
30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in
marriage, but are as angels in heaven.

Acts 13:33-35
33 that God hath fulfilled the same unto our children, in that he
raised up Jesus; as also it is written in the second psalm, Thou art my
Son, this day have I begotten thee.
34 And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more
to return to corruption, he hath spoken on this wise, I will give you
the holy and sure blessings of David.
35 Because he saith also in another psalm, Thou wilt not give Thy Holy
One to see corruption.

Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, be not anxious for your life,
what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what
ye shall put on. Is not the life more than the food, and the body than
the raiment?

1 Corinthians 15:32 If after the manner of men I fought with beasts at
Ephesus, what doth it profit me? If the dead are not raised, let us eat
and drink, for to-morrow we die.

Luke 22:30 that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom; and ye
shall sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Revelation 22:2 in the midst of the street thereof. And on this side of
the river and on that was the tree of life, bearing twelve manner of
fruits, yielding its fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were
for the healing of the nations.

Rise and Pray today

Luke 22:46And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter
into temptation.

Now that most of the schools and colleges in India have finished their
exams, most of the children would be eagerly waiting for their results.
Those who woke up late nights or took time regularly to study through
their academic year would not be worried of the results and may be in
fact excited for they were prepared. But those who did not, who lazed
around or were busy doing things that were irrelevant to their studies
will be most worried.

Think of it, can a person who did not spend time studying and did not
answer the paper, if that person prays, would that person pass? Would
that prayer be answered? There is a possibility if that person needs a
few marks God may change the heart of the corrector to be lenient and
give the extra marks for the person to pass. But that is only if the
person needs just a few marks.

We do say God is omnipotent and nothing is impossible for God but in
such a case would God intervene? The only option for God would be to do
an unfair deed unto others so as to answer the prayer and that God does
not do, for He is a just God.

In today's message we read Jesus waking up His disciple to tell them to
pray so that they do not fall into temptation.

Let us ask a question, can a sleeping person be tempted? So Jesus was
not asking them to pray such that they do not get tempted at that moment
but to pray so that they are not tempted in the future. He was asking
them to be like those students who prepare for the exam in advance by
studying.

Now let us ask another question, are exams bad? All students may not
like exams but they know without exams they cannot move to go to a
higher standard. So even though exams are not very good by all but they
are necessary, those who are prepared all the time love exams.

The Greek word translated as temptation is 'peirazo' and 5 times it is
translated as testing, try or examine. We do not associate temptation to
God but always to devils. The moment we say temptation we associate the
direction towards destruction and not promotion. But when we say God
tests us we know the direction is towards promotion and not destruction.
That is what James says in his letter when he wrote that God does not
tempt / test with evil.

Let us face it we will face both testing and temptation during our
spiritual growth. Testing and temptations build us like rigorous
training a commando goes, his falls also teach him what not to do the
next time. They are like the persecution which every growing Christian
faces while doing work for God's Kingdom.

If both are necessary then what are we praying for?

We need to understand God is in control of all things and devils cannot
tempt us if God does not permit. That does not mean God encourages
devils to tempt.

Those who are spiritually growing have a hedge of protection around them
and this deters the devils' works. So the more we grow the higher are
the walls of protection. Even when the walls are low and we are seeking
God, God sets a limit to the level of testing devils do and makes
available an escaped through it. To escape through that testing /
temptation we need to be spiritually awake. Our communication (prayer
does not mean just pleading with God, also good communication needs the
Word to be in us) with God keeps us spiritually awake so that we do not
fall easily prey to devils' testing and secondly even if we do then we
will find that escaped window which God always provides.

Jesus was made to fast for 40 days in the wilderness [He did not do it
as repentance nor to build faith] so that He would be broken down in the
natural and spiritual and could be tested. God set Him to be tested by
Satan the same tests which Adam and Eve went through in Eden. This was
for us who are growing spiritually to learn how to overcome devils'
testing /temptation.

Both God and Satan test if the Word is in us. It is the Word in us that
helps promote us or lets us escape testing.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are a Merciful and Righteous God. You do not compromise your
principles yet You make way for man to escape destruction. Satan always
tried to put man against You so that your wrath may fall upon man and
destroy him. Lord Jesus You took the wrath of God on You on the Cross
and gave us your Spirit so that via your Spirit we do not fall to face
the wrath. Lord we pray we realize how great the wrath would be, that
after receiving your Spirit we do not abide in it...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Luke 8:13And those on the rock are they who, when they have heard,
receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who for a while
believe, and in time of temptation fall away.

1 Timothy 6:9But they that are minded to be rich fall into a temptation
and a snare and many foolish and hurtful lusts, such as drown men in
destruction and perdition.

James 1:13Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God; for
God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempteth no man:

Matthew 4:1Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be
tempted of the devil.

1 Corinthians 10:13There hath no temptation taken you but such as man
can bear: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted
above that ye are able; but will with the temptation make also the way
of escape, that ye may be able to endure it.

Luke 21:36But watch ye at every season, making supplication, that ye may
prevail to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand
before the Son of man.
