Mark them!

Philippians 3:17, 18, 19 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark 
them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. (For many walk, of 
whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are 
the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God 
is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

When we read today's message one may wonder Paul is telling people to be 
judgmental. He seem to say mark them that say they are Christian Leaders 
but are people who are concern more of their belly, their fame and 
earthly things more than about the mission of Christ. Paul goes on to 
call these people 'enemies of the CROSS of Christ' more like 
Anti-Christ. One of the clues that Paul gives to identify these people 
is by comparing their lifestyle with the lifestyle of the Apostles 
(people like Paul).

If one sees the lifestyle of the Apostles, it was a lifestyle of 
simplicity. They were people who lived by their needs and not by their 
desires. Their main focus was the Kingdom of God and glory of God via 
Christ. They never glorified themselves nor boasted about their 
achievements to the people. Their own families were never the focus of 
their ministry. We do not see them praying regularly for prosperity or 
deliverance from financial problem. They preached repentance, 
deliverance from evil spirits and overcoming the flesh.

Just some weeks back a brother rooted in the Word and who harkens to the 
Holy Spirit was helping his Church who called an international preacher 
who preaches Prosperity Gospel. You may think the Church is inviting the 
needy and the suffering, NO. Like the brother rightly worded the message 
before forwarding for 'elite Christians' and 'celebrities'. Those who 
have are the ones who want more, more than those who do not have.

One may look at all the Church Leaders today and put them against what 
Paul speaks and one may say are all of them enemies of the CROSS of 
Christ, since only a handful of them live a simple life serving God more 
than serving their families or their egos or their bellies.

One may think Paul calls us to point them out and condemn them, shame 
them in public or at least among other Believers. NO

Paul uses the word 'skopeo', translated here as 'mark'; in Greek it 
means more to observe and learn. Paul tells us to be-aware (beware) of 
such people for they may claim to be good shepherds but are people who 
have made Church and Ministry a business to meet their physical or 
mental desires. We are not called to condemn them openly but to discern 
them and be careful of them.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You humbled yourself and came as man to give unto others eternal 
life. You did not come to take but give, You will take only at the end 
that is on Judgment Day. You want the most precious thing that is us. 
Lord we pray those who are called to be shepherds may not crave for 
earthly things or things that gratify the mind, but seek souls like You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Philippians 3:20-21

20For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the 
Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

21Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his 
glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to 
subdue all things unto himself.

Matthew 7:18-23

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

19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast 
into the fire.

20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21Not 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.

22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in 
thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done 
many wonderful works?

23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, 
ye that work iniquity.

The just centurion Cornelius

Acts 10:33 Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and thou hast well done 
that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to 
hear all things that are commanded thee of God.

In this incident we see the Lord appears to Cornelius the Roman 
centurion and asks him to send for Simon Peter, and the Lord also 
provides the address. At the same time we see the Lord speaks to Peter 
and tells him about 3 men who would come seeking for him. We see here 
the Lord makes double sure that Peter goes to minister to Cornelius.

We may think God was sending Peter to minister to Cornelius but we fail 
to realize that while Peter was sent to minister to Cornelius the Lord 
was ministering to Peter. Just before the 3 men arrive at Simon the 
tanner's house to ask for Peter, we see Peter had a vision where the 
Lord was asking him to eat various kinds of animals which Peter thought 
to be unclean.

Peter was a religious person and had great Jewish influence in his 
understanding; he would get into controversies because of this and was 
later rebuked by Paul for this more than once.

We today have many Christians who due to lack of understanding of 
scriptures follow the Lord in the flesh. People get very disturbed when 
you tell them you consume pork (pig) as a Christian; these same people 
do not get any disturbed when they state Jewish people are special 
people of God and they call themselves gentiles. How many times have you 
heard people claim that God has asked us to pray for Israel, on asking 
them to show the scripture, they will provide one where the Lord asks 
His people to pray for Jerusalem. Jerusalem is a city and Israel a 
nation. Pray for Delhi does not mean pray for India. Also during OT 
times Jerusalem was the capital of Judah and Samaria was capital of 
Israel. Also how many know there are two Jerusalems mentioned in the OT 
text with different spellings.

Jesus said anything we eat goes out into the draught and does not defile 
us (spiritually). All animals are made of flesh and bones like humans, 
but Paul says the flesh of man is unlike the flesh of animals or of 
birds. Man knows 2 types of flesh white and red (i.e. fish and animals). 
If a scientist were to read this verse he would say the Bible fails 
since Paul is unaware it is not possible for any layman to differentiate 
between human flesh and animal flesh, especially beef. It is only under 
the microscope or by doing a DNA test one can differentiate between 
fleshes (that way flesh of every type of animal is different). So did 
Paul write this without being inspired by God? No.

Paul did not talk of physical flesh same as when God said an animal is 
clean or unclean God too did not talk of the actual animal. It is only 
when we study the nature of animal we understand what God was telling us 
a clean or unclean. People especially Muslims do not eat pigs but live 
its spiritual nature that is of consuming understandings without 
discerning. In the name of Islam they believe anything even when it 
contradicts what they already believe.

Today in India we have a great political storm alive in the name of cast 
and of animals being considered holy. By their birth people are 
considered unclean or of lower status. This understanding is so deep 
rooted among Indians that even Believer Christians in many states 
(especially among south Indians) still follow it.

All humans are same in the natural irrespective of which ever race they 
are of, leaving for difference in physical height, skin color or hair. 
There is only one race which has a prominent facial difference (in the 
skull) and that is the Mongolian race (East Asian). Thus there is no 
much difference at all in the natural; the only difference is in the 
spiritual. In the spiritual as per God's Kingdom there are 3 types of 
people. Those who have no faith - not among the flock; then those among 
the flock are of two types the non-doers of the Word - the goats and the 
doers of the Word - the sheep.

Like Cornelius we may be Roman, or be Japanese, Philippian, African, 
Indian, Middle Eastern, European, American or Israelite; we all are same 
in the eyes of God provided we have faith and are in Christ (doers of 
His Will). Those who will be hated by God and punished most are not the 
ones who do not know God (they pay for their sins / their sins burn in 
them) but are those who know God and yet have rejected Him by rejecting 
His Will/Word.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we pray we do not look at man and judge them but understand the 
difference is inside not on the outside. Lord we pray for maturity and 
discernment and release from all religious bondages of misunderstanding. 
We pray we remember You created everything and after doing so You said 
all is Good...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Acts 10:17-35

Acts 10:9-15

9On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the 
city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour:

10And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made 
ready, he fell into a trance,

11And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it 
had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth:

12Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild 
beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.

13And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.

14But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is 
common or unclean.

15And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath 
cleansed, that call not thou common.

Matthew 15:17-20

17Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth 
goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?

18But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the 
heart; and they defile the man.

19For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, 
fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:

20These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen 
hands defileth not a man.

1 Corinthians 15:39All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one 
kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and 
another of birds.

Romans 2:28-29

28For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that 
circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

29But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of 
the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of 
men, but of God.

Blood and Water

John 19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and 
forthwith came there out blood and water.

Put this scripture for discussion on the table and you will find some of 
the craziest of explanations. Long time back at a prayer service one 
Believer bro stated it was a baptism of Christ and baptism of the thief 
whom Jesus said was saved (he could not explain how this water baptized 
the thief for this bro believed without water baptism the thief could 
not enter Heaven). Catholics too have some crazy understanding of this 
scripture which causes their priest to put a small quantity of water in 
the wine while the breaking the Eucharist (round wafer symbolizing the 
Sun, which they say is the body of Christ). Catholics also follow a 
belief called 'Divine Mercy' which pictures Jesus with water and blood 
oozing out of His heart which is shown outside His body. This too is 
very unbiblical and focused to mislead people from being saved (in the 
name of getting saved) for it calls them to chat words which reject 
Christ (His Word) even though they take the name of Christ.

When a person drinks water on an empty stomach it takes about 5mins for 
the water to be absorbed and enter the blood stream. Cold water is 
absorbed faster than hot water. If one eats and drinks water then the 
water has to wait till the food is digested to be absorbed. All extra 
water is ejected out of the body as urine. Maximum time (in normal 
situation) water can remains in the stomach is 2 hours. There are cases 
where water is retained by the body in some places and this is a disease.

Jesus was arrested on the starting day of the Feast of the Unleavened 
Bread which was a Sabbath / Saturday evening (the feast was weeklong 
feast and during the time of Jesus was celebrated along with the 
Passover). So it was both the first day of Unleavened Bread and also the 
day when the lamb was bought into the house and kept under observation 
for 5 days to see if it shows signs of blemish.

Jesus was taken from the Jewish court to Roman courts and tortured by 
both through the 5 days (it was not a one day event). So on Thursday 
evening He was taken for crucifixion and crucified in the evening. 
Friday was the Passover Day and a High Sabbath. It was during the five 
days that the Jews whipped Him with a standard whip and the Romans with 
one having 9 to 13 strands and flesh tearing objects tied to its ends. 
All through these 5 days they mocked Him and abused Him and surely they 
neither feed Him nor give Him water to drink (for they wanted Him to 
die). John 19:32 says He thirsted after He came to the end of the 
ordeal. Scripture says on His request they gave Him vinegar (which is 
sour wine, also called poor man's wine). Before crucifying Him they 
tried giving Him vinegar mixed with gall (used as a pain killer) but He 
refused it.

If we look at the whole scientifically there is no chance of water 
oozing out along with blood when He was pierced on the side, thus this 
was a miracle in itself.

Why did God need to do this miracle?

All things connected with the Passion of Christ from the last supper to 
His walking into the wilderness after His resurrection had to do with 
fulfillment of sacrifices given in the books of Moses.

One of the sacrifices done to ordain the sons of the High Priest as a 
Priest was washing the inner parts of the sacrifice. The Lord showed us 
through the oozing of water and blood that we are today ordained as 
Priest and sons unto His Kingdom. There is no better conformation than 
the fulfillment of the sacrifice.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we thank You for being such an awesome God. Your love for us cannot 
be comprehended. You suffered as man and fulfilled all that was needed 
for restoration of man into your Kingdom. Lord let this blood and water 
be a reminder for us of our duty as Priests and Sons. May we not fail in 
our duty to make void the great sacrifice in our lives...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 27:34They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when 
he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.

John 19:28-30

28After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that 
the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

29Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge 
with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

30When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is 
finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the spirit.

Exodus 29:17And thou shalt cut the ram in pieces, and wash the inwards 
of him, and his legs, and put them unto his pieces, and unto his head.

Eyes the engineering marvel of God

Acts 22:13,14 Came unto me, and stood, and said unto me, Brother Saul, 
receive thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him. And he said, 
The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his 
will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth.

One of the greatest marvels in this creation is what we see it with, 
that is our eye. Technology has developed so much that we can see deep 
into space many light years far, but yet this technology is not 
competent enough to beat this small creation of God which is the eye, 
i.e. its resolution is about 576 mega pixels.

When one studies the parts of the eye and how it functions one just 
remains in awe of the wisdom of God. He has everything from physics, to 
chemistry, to biology, to mathematics all in this small wonderful camera 
by which we see the world.

When I was reading the transformation of Saul (Paul was his Roman name, 
from father's side and Saul his Jewish name, from mother's side) I saw 
what happened to Saul was more of a cataract operation. Saul sees a 
flash of light and from that time he is unable to see for everything is 
hazy. After Ananias prayed over him the scales of his eyes fell and he 
could see. I was wondering why God needed to replace Saul's eye scales / 
lenses.

In His teachings Jesus said the eye is the light of the body. He said if 
our eyes are good then the whole body will be full of light.

Try this test speak to a person about something while showing a video 
which is the opposite of what you are saying and there are very high 
chances that the person will grasp what they see more than what you are 
saying. A picture speaks a thousand words and video hundred thousand.

Vision is very important part of the human system. Man understands the 
importance of visuals and that is why today schools use this medium more 
and more to teach its students. The world that hates God also knows its 
importance and thus uses this aggressively to tempt people to lust and 
sin. Christians do not realize the way they are influenced by this world 
and fall prey to the world. Women specially have become victims to this 
so called 'modern world' and in the name of glamor and beauty have 
become instruments to propagate lust of the eyes, of touch and of taste 
the weapons of Satan. When he tempted Adam and Eve he had them first to 
see the forbidden fruit, then hold it and then taste it. Ad media uses 
the same system of see, touch and taste to sell products.

When I was writing on the inner-man the Lord led me to study the human 
eye and helped me understand the inner-man through the eye. Saul did not 
need his eyes to be blinded or scale (lens) of his eyes to be replaced; 
God could have changed him from inside. God did this to show us what 
exactly He was doing inside with Saul.

To look and see is two different things. We may look at things but we 
may not see it. Our eyes capture a thousand things but where our focus 
is, allows us to see it. Let us be aware of what we are focusing on in 
this word and beware the ways of the evil one.

Today God is telling us 2 things, one the importance of what we see and 
how that affects us inside and who can lead us towards darkness. 
Secondly He is also telling us the vision of our inner-man should be 
renewed for the change to happen. What we see in our spirit is very 
important since it tells us where we are headings. In our spirit if we 
see God's glory we are heading towards light but if we see anything else 
we are heading towards darkness.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are an Awesome God and your wisdom is beyond measure. You have 
created the most marvelous things as little, for You Lord take pride in 
making the weak strong and the poor rich. You Lord are maker of the 
impossible and unthinkable. We pray Lord that we give importance to what 
things we see and how we see things...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 6:22The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be 
single [good], thy whole body shall be full of light.

Matthew 18:9And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from 
thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than 
having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

Matthew 20:15Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is 
thine eye evil, because I am good?

Acts 9:17,18

17And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his 
hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared 
unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest 
receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.

18And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he 
received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.

Holy Scriptures -the complete Book

Romans 1:1,2Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, 
separated unto the gospel of God, (Which he had promised afore by his 
prophets in the holy scriptures,)

In today's message Paul talks of him being a bonded servant (set for a 
task or period of time and not slave) with a Calling of an Apostle 
separated to give the Gospel (Good News) of God as promised by the 
Prophets in the Holy Scriptures.

If one asks any Christian about the book of Romans, you will get the 
answer 'it is Word of God', some may say 'inspired Word of God'.

Are all the (66) books of the Bible inspired by God? – Yes

Are all the (66) books of the Bible infallible? – Yes

Are all the (66) books of the Bible Word of God? – Not really

If one looks at the Bible minutely it is like a library having various 
types of books. There are some prophetic books, some chronicles, some 
teachings (explaining scriptures) and the Gospels (teachings and 
recordings of Jesus). The book of Romans (Paul's letter to the Romans in 
Rome) is part of the Epistles of Paul by which Paul guides the Roman 
Christians to understand scriptures.

When we say prophetic books of the Bible it means the books that have 
prophecies concerning the salvation of mankind. Paul puts it in a better 
way in today's message he says those written by the Prophets. Paul does 
not say Man of God (Nabi) but specifies those with the calling of a 
Prophet. In Greek the word used is 'prophetes' meaning a 'speaker of 
oracles', it is made of 2 words which together mean one who says about 
an event in advance. In other words Biblical Prophets are spokesmen of 
God who speak on behave of God and announce this before they happen.

We have Men and Women of God who have the Calling of Prophet even today 
does that mean they give the Word of God. The Prophet Writers or 
composers (people begin the books) of the Old Testament were special for 
they gave prophecies concerning the salvation of mankind, Jesus was the 
last to complete declaring prophecies concerning the salvation of 
mankind. He is called the finisher of our faith not only by the things 
He did, doing and will do, but also because He completed the prophetic 
Word of God concerning salvation of mankind. Today, or even after Jesus' 
preaching on the Mount of Olives where it is written 'He finished all 
these words', just before He became our Paschal sacrifice; no one can 
add or change anything that is already given.

Let us understand the Bible is a complete book, a library within itself 
and all that we need is within the Bible. In the start we may refer to 
other books so as to understand the Bible but as we learn to study the 
Bible better we will find we really do not need any other book for 
everything needed, in every way is there within the 66 books.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are God and all knowing. Lord, You and your Word are Truth that 
is unchangeable. You Lord know what is needed and thus everything needed 
You have already provided. We pray Lord your people learn to understand 
your Word and be rooted on the Rock (cliff) that does not shake...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

2 Peter 3:16as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these 
things; wherein are some things hard to be understood, which the 
ignorant and unstedfast wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, 
unto their own destruction.

Romans 16:26but now is manifested, and by the scriptures of the 
prophets, according to the commandment of the eternal God, is made known 
unto all the nations unto obedience of faith:

2 Timothy 3:16Every scripture inspired of God is also profitable for 
teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in 
righteousness.

Matthew 26:1-2

1And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these words, he said 
unto his disciples,

2Ye know that after two days the passover cometh, and the Son of man is 
delivered up to be crucified.

John 19:28After this Jesus, knowing that all things are now finished, 
that the scripture might be accomplished, saith, I thirst.

Hebrews 12:2Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who 
for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the 
shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Revelation 22:18-19

18For 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:

19And 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.

Stop being earthly Christians

John 3:31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the 
earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven 
is above all.

A couple of days back I saw a bro preaching in a whatsapp Christian 
group that Hell is in the center of the earth and Heaven is above. His 
understanding was based on English translations. What I was surprised 
was the group had many mature Christians who kept silent and did not 
confront him. He used scriptures like Philippians 2:10 which have words 
like 'under the earth'; the Greek word there is 'katachthonios' which is 
a compound word and means 'the world below'. Also Revelation 5:3,13 
where the words 'under the earth' actually means 'by below'.

Islam has a belief of Paradise (Garden) as being a physical place 
suspended up in the air and one Islamic preacher stated it to be right 
above the Kaaba based on Islamic text. Hindus also believe their gods 
dwell in the clouds and have palaces similar to earthly place but made 
of gold and precious stones and also places like mountains suspended in 
the air. What is common in all these religions is that they hold on to 
the natural and are void of the spiritual. They anchor earth as being 
the center of all things.

In OT Hebrew text show directions north, south, east and west but if one 
goes to the root words these are linear direction (north and east) as 
down and (south and west) as up. God's Kingdom is either up / down or 
north /south or west / east or right / left and these are based on 
principles of God and not direction.

The 'Christian' belief of a physical Heaven and Hell was promoted by the 
Catholics and programed into the minds of people by visual media 
(paintings). Due to Catholic programing there are many Christian who 
think Heaven is actually made of earthly gold and gems and a city 
suspended in the air above earth. They base their understanding on 
scriptures but they ignore the preceding scripture which specifies the 
dimension of this Heaven city. If one also takes these measurements 
literally then Heaven will become a large Barbie house.

The Jews fail to know God even though they have the Word of God (OT) 
with them and they know the native (Hebrew and Aramaic) language, all 
because they go by the literate text and not by the understanding of the 
text.

Today's scripture has two 'above's and both have different meanings the 
first above 'anothen' means 'a higher place', roots from the word 'in 
the beginning' so this scripture talks of a place that pre-existed and 
greater than that what we exist in. The second above 'epano' means the 
normal above which is 'over'.

Bible translations try to be as simple as possible and if they get very 
technical than it would be difficult for a non-mature Christian to 
understand scriptures. Like a Pastor told me if you preach this depth 
people will stop coming to Church. It is sad but this is the truth of 
Christianity today. It is good that translations are simple so people 
understand but this has also caused Christians not to grow in understanding.

The Lord is telling us who are earthly will have earthly understanding 
of His Kingdom and those who are Heavenly with have true spiritual 
understanding of His Kingdom.

Earthly Christianity is a religion and Heavenly Christianity is not. Let 
us not be earthly Christians following a religion of vanity. True 
Christianity is eternal for it is all about having life eternal and 
natural things are not eternal. Eternal life is possible only if we have 
access to Heaven, so if we do not forsake and die to the natural, we 
will not see the spiritual Heaven and thus not have access to eternity.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord your people today are like the Israelites who came out of Egypt. 
Even after they suffered at the hands of the vanity (Egyptians), saw 
your glory and drawn out yet they desired to go back to where they came 
from. They make idols and gods like that of the Egyptians and worshipped 
them. Lord, to come to You we are called to die to ourselves and to the 
desires of this world. We pray we do not hold to these desires and thus 
loose our entry to Eternity...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Philippians 2:10That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of 
things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

Revelation 21:10-23

Revelation 5:3And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the 
earth [by down], was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.

Revelation 5:13And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, 
and under the earth [by down], and such as are in the sea, and all that 
are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, 
be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and 
ever.

Baptism of John

Acts 19: 3And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And 
they said, Unto John's baptism.

In the Bible we do not see any place that God told John (the Baptist / 
Baptizer) to dip people in water and get them to be baptized, also note 
John was not baptizing people in the name of Jesus Christ but baptizing 
them with the baptism of repentance. It was this baptism of repentance 
which we call today as water baptism.

We see in Believer Churches today any new person comes the first thing 
they are asked is if they have taken water baptism. I have heard many 
Preachers preaching regarding baptism as being immersed in water, dying 
and coming alive in Christ; before I too used to preach the same.

This statement might shake many - One cannot be baptized in Jesus Christ 
to receive Christ unless one is water baptized, but getting water 
baptism does not necessary mean receiving Christ.

You may say but bro water baptism is being baptized in Jesus Christ. 
Water baptism is the baptism of repentance and without baptism of 
repentance one cannot be baptism in Jesus Christ. Water baptism was one 
of the many symbolic ways in which the Jews did baptism of repentance. 
It was John who chose water baptism to proclaim repentance among the 
Jews (that is why his name was John the Baptizer) and it was Jesus's 
taking water baptism to fulfill prophecy (the symbol and not as 
repentance) that has made water baptism famous.

Like Baptism of the Holy Spirit has no ritual or tradition so also 
Baptism in Jesus Christ also has no symbolic ritual or tradition, but 
baptism of repentance does. When we call people for water baptism it is 
for baptism of repentance and when we get them to repent we get them 
ready to receive Jesus Christ. When we baptize a person with water 
baptism in the name of Jesus Christ we need to tell them more about the 
baptism of repentance first and then baptism in Jesus Christ. People who 
are get water baptized in the name of Jesus Christ without the baptism 
of repentance will not receive the promise of salvation in Jesus Christ 
for none can come to Him without the baptism of repentance.

Any person, who does not need baptism of repentance, does not need 
Christ. Like exchanging of rings does not get two persons married but it 
is their coming together to form a family that does, so also water 
baptism is symbolic to repentance. We do not read of the twelve Apostles 
taking water baptism or of Jesus water baptizing anyone, but they all 
did encourage others to be water baptized. During those days they very 
well knew what water baptism was, today people are not. Let us not get 
people water baptized without baptism of repentance for such a baptism 
is meaningless. Let us first lead them to repentance so that they 
receive Christ and His promise of salvation.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are Holy and Righteous God and no one can come to You without 
repentance for none were and are found righteous. We all have failed and 
fallen short and it is You alone who lifts us and makes us a new 
creation. You have called us to be born-again in spirit and for that the 
existing has to die. Lord we pray in repentance the old dies so that a 
new is born in us...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Acts 19:1-6

1And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having 
passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain 
disciples,

2He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Spirit since ye believed? 
And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be 
any Holy Spirit.

3And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, 
Unto John's baptism.

4Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, 
saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should 
come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.

5When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

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

John 4:2(although Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples),

Faith; putting it to action

Luke 17:14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves 
unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were 
cleansed.

We see Preachers always talk of the faith of many other characters in 
the Bible but very few talk of the faith of these 10 lepers.

In the OT we see like AIDs was some time back (until people were 
educated on it) more worse was leprosy. Anyone who had leprosy would 
have to declare they were unclean and thus while moving around in public 
places they had to keep shouting a unclean person is passing by. In OT 
Jerusalem we see most of them had to live outside city limits in the 
valley that surrounded it. The person who declared them clean or unclean 
was not a doctor or physician but a priest. He would look at the patches 
according to the book of Leviticus chapter 13 and then declare if it was 
leprosy or not, and according to the law to be declared clean they had 
to also go and show themselves to the priest (in actual God was not 
referring to the natural sickness but spiritual sickness of 
unrighteousness).

We see when Jesus heard them crying for healing by asking for mercy, He 
told them to go and show themselves to the priest. Scriptures says 
nothing happened to them when Jesus told them to do that yet they went. 
Now imagine, they going to a priest in an unclean state, surely the 
priest would be very upset and at those times the priest had great 
powers, like that of a statesman, what they said was law.

The faith of these lepers was so strong that they did not wait to see a 
change but yet went to show themselves to the priest believing they will 
have their healing. It was on their way as they were traveling to show 
themselves to the priest that their situation changed; they got healed 
as they were traveling.

Today the Lord is telling those who are suffering from aliments of the 
body to believe in their healing and they will see their healing come. 
You may not see any symptoms but your faith will cause them to be 
visible. However critical or long may be the history of your ailment, 
your faith is greater; for your faith is based on the one for whom 
nothing is impossible.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we thank You Lord for the declaration of healing of our bodies, we 
know Lord nothing is impossible for You. We pray we have faith like 
those lepers to believe and receive. Help us take the step of faith and 
to receive our healing...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Luke 17:12-14

12And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that 
were lepers, which stood afar off:

13And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy 
on us.

14And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the 
priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed.

Leviticus 13:38-59

Who is a Zionist?

Obadiah 1: 21 And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the 
mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD'S.

We see Muslims love to call Jews as Zionist and have made it like a mock 
name. Some of them even go on to call the western countries as Zionist. 
If only the Muslims know what the term means they would not use it.

To find meaning of Biblical terms one needs to mostly go to the Hebrew 
word and its root. In Hebrew the word 'Tsiyown' means "parched place" a 
place that is thirsty. If one goes to its root word 'tsiyuwn' which 
means a 'signpost' or 'monument' or 'market', so Zion basically means a 
place of thirst (desire) and of great importance. Some theologians also 
render the word Mount Zion as 'sunny mountain' instead of 'thirsty 
mountain'.

The first utilization of the word is in 2 Samuel 5:6 when David captured 
Jerusalem from Jebusites we see it is called Zion and also City of 
David. The book of Samuel called ancient Jerusalem as Zion because it 
was like a naturally fortified city surrounded by valleys / ravines on 
all sides leaving for the north side. Jerusalem does not have any 
mountain; it is built on a rocky plateau which has two hills. Solomon 
built walls around Jerusalem and made it a modern fortified city. These 
walls have a history of being broken and rebuild and so much are the 
sentiments of Jews to it that they pray at this wall (a section of which 
that stands even today) with their hand bond physically in a leather 
strap (while scriptures have a spiritual rendering), thus making it as 
idol worship (like Muslims do at the Kaaba taking seven rounds around it 
and end of every round kiss the black meteorite emulating the actions of 
Muhammad).

If we look at the word Zion it has been used rendering in various ways 
literally (thirsty), historically (fortified), geographically 
(surrounded by valleys) and spiritually (desiring the Lord). In today's 
message which is a prophecy we see the word is spiritually used. It 
speaks of the saved (saviors) coming to Mount Zion (thirsty mountain - 
pinnacle of spiritual thirst) to judge the mount of Esau (which means 
hairy - symbolizing grace) and this event causes the coming of the 
Kingdom of the Lord.

This will be tough for many to digest 'grace saves us but grace does not 
take us to Heaven'. Grace is like a hand of a parent which holds up an 
infant and protects it from falling. But Kingdom of God is not for 
infants or children; it is for Sons of God. We (collectively) are called 
to mature in spirit and become Sons of God.

Today we see most Churches are primarily based on principle of grace 
(abundant grace), they have this concept whatever they do God 
understands and will forgive. They forget some of the characteristics 
(Names) of God is 'slow to anger' and 'righteous'. If God is always 
forgiving then how could He be righteous or slow to anger? No doubt God 
is merciful but His mercy cannot be taken for granted. There will come a 
time He will account His mercy / grace.

Today's message tells us as we spiritually thirst more for the Lord we 
will less depend on His grace. Thirsting for the Lord means having more 
of Him in us that is filling ourselves with His understanding and His 
nature. The message tells us the day we (collectively) do we will 
overcome grace and His Kingdom will come.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are a Merciful God and at the same time You are Righteous and 
Holy God. We pray Lord we do not take your mercy / grace for granted and 
we grow in spirit by increasing our thirst for You and things of your 
Kingdom...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

2 Samuel 5:7Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is 
the city of David.

1 Kings 8:1Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the 
heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, 
unto king Solomon in Jerusalem, that they might bring up the ark of the 
covenant of the LORD out of the city of David, which is Zion.

Psalms 48:2Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, Is mount 
Zion, on the sides of the north, The city of the great King.

Psalms 74:2Remember thy congregation, which thou hast gotten of old, 
Which thou hast redeemed to be the tribe of thine inheritance; And mount 
Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.

Isaiah 4:5And Jehovah will create over the whole habitation of mount 
Zion, and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining 
of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be spread a 
covering.

Isaiah 8:18Behold, I and the children whom Jehovah hath given me are for 
signs and for wonders in Israel from Jehovah of hosts, who dwelleth in 
mount Zion.

Uncool Paul

2 Corinthians 11: 6Even if I am unskilled in speaking, I am not so in 
knowledge; indeed, in every way we have made this plain to you in all 
things.

Christians admire Paul and look up to him but what is interesting is if 
Paul was alive today probably he would not have got a chance to preach 
even in Churches.

You may be surprised at this comment but that is as fact. Paul was one 
of the most knowledgeable in the scriptures and yet he had a great 
problem in preaching. He lacked the skill as an orator; he could not 
hold the attention of the group for long. In his initial stage Acts 
records one of his long preaching where a person sitting on the window 
dosed off and fell from a height and died. Paul managed to bring back to 
life. Also in his first letter to Corinth Paul seems very upset since 
the Corinthians were comparing his preaching to that of Timothy who was 
discipled by Paul. In today's message taken from Paul's second letter to 
the Believers of Corinth Paul acknowledges his lack of skill in preaching.

It was only the Church of Corinth which complained on this deficiency in 
Paul and no other Church did. Corinth was the most un-disciple Church 
that struggled between worldly ways and ways of the Kingdom of God this 
we know from Paul's letter to them.

Some years back I was part of a team on outreach mission in the remote 
parts of Maharashtra. There was a young Evangelist Preacher, main 
preacher of this team who was asked on the stage to say a spontaneous 
prayer to the crowd. He did say the prayer but was visibly disturbed, 
later I saw him complaining to the announcer as to why he was not told 
in advance to prepare for the prayer. I came to know he practices his 
preaching like a stage actor practices for a drama. He is a favorite 
among the youth here in India.

Today in Church we have many good Preachers but sadly they are just good 
orators, skilled in preaching. A brother told one such preacher 'brother 
why do you warm yesterday's chapatti (Indian bread) and feed us, we want 
to eat something fresh'; this upset the preacher very much and 
disconnected from the brother. Sadly the preacher did not change and 
even after 8 to 10 years he preaches the same thing and still manages to 
pull large crowds.

Young Preachers are so taken up by TV Evangelists that they copy not 
only the vocal style of these Evangelist but also the way of walking and 
the theatrical that is done on the stage.

Orator skill is like the dressing of the dish it helps attract people to 
the topic and also helps hold their attention but if the actual dish is 
unhealthy and unedifying, we are feeding people dressing only.

Many Churches as full today for people come for blessings (worldly), 
healings and to hear what they want to hear or what they already know. 
They love Preachers who are good orators but do not give the hard Truth. 
If Churches preach the Truth many of them will see people leaving the 
Church, but then we will have genuine Christians. It will be these 
genuine Christians who will glorify God and quicken His Kingdom on earth.

Let us know other than Evangelist there are others in the Body of Christ 
like Apostle who can disciple people in Christ, a Teacher who can 
strengthen their understanding, also Healers and Administrators 
(Bishops). All are needed to play different roles and bring the complete 
growth of the Church.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are God and You alone are God. Your Kingdom is not of this 
world for your Kingdom is eternal and this world is temporary. We pray 
Lord we seek your Kingdom more than this world and the pleasures of this 
world. We pray Lord the Preachers edify your people and build your 
people in You. We pray that Church stop being crests or theaters and 
becoming hospitals and training centers where the weak are made strong 
and strong trained to go out and reach to the lost...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Acts 20:9And there sat in the window a certain young man named Eutychus, 
borne down with deep sleep; and as Paul discoursed yet longer, being 
borne down by his sleep he fell down from the third story, and was taken 
up dead.

1 Corinthians 2:4And my speech and my preaching were not in persuasive 
words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

2 Corinthians 10:8-10

8For though I should glory somewhat abundantly concerning our authority 
(which the Lord gave for building you up, and not for casting you down), 
I shall not be put to shame:

9that I may not seem as if I would terrify you by my letters.

10For, His letters, they say, are weighty and strong; but his bodily 
presence is weak, and his speech of no account.

2 Timothy 4:5But be thou sober in all things, suffer hardship, do the 
work of an evangelist, fulfil thy ministry.

There is no passive Christianity

Matthew 3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: 
therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, 
and cast into the fire.

Christians as made to understand sin as something dirty like a stain 
because Acts 22:16 says 'wash away your sins'. So people think just 
getting forgiveness for one's sins is sufficient.

People have a very wrong concept that just forgiveness of sins will get 
man to go to Heaven. If it was just forgiveness of sins that was 
required then the Lord need not have given us His Spirit, after 
resurrection Jesus would not have had to go to Heaven so that He would 
make way for His Spirit to work amongst man. Imagine the work and 
conversion Jesus would have done had He remained appearing on earth 
amongst man even today. The whole world would have been Christian and 
there would have not been any religion. But then that would not have 
fulfilled the purpose God made man.

God made man to be light in the darkness to be an overcomer. Just being 
clean does not make one to be a light. One needs to have the Fruits of 
the Holy Spirit to become a light in the darkness.

Satan (plural) is called Anti-Christ and not Anti-God. He hates the 
plans of God through Christ because he knows it is through Christ that 
man will one day show him what he is and cause him to receive what is 
due to him.

There is nothing like passive Christian, a person who does not do any 
wrong such a person may be good in the eyes of the people of the world 
but for Christ a person is called His disciple when he or she follows or 
does what He did. Jesus Christ as man was not passive but active.

Let us understand unless we do the Will of the Father we are not really 
Christians and for that we need to step out of our comfort zone and 
reach out to lost souls.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we pray your sheep may understand that to remain part of the flock 
of You the Good Shepherd they need to on the move spiritually, by 
remaining in one place they would be left out of the flock. We pray Lord 
every Christian be an active Christian shining your Light among mankind...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Acts 22:16And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash 
away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

John 3:5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except one be 
born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God!

John 7:38-39

38He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, from within him 
shall flow rivers of living water.

39But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believed on him were 
to receive: for the Spirit was not yet given; because Jesus was not yet 
glorified.

John 16:13-16

13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he shall guide you into 
all the truth: for he shall not speak from himself; but what things 
soever he shall hear, these shall he speak: and he shall declare unto 
you the things that are to come.

14He shall glorify me: for he shall take of mine, and shall declare it 
unto you.

15All things whatsoever the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that 
he taketh of mine, and shall declare it unto you.

16A little while, and ye behold me no more; and again a little while, 
and ye shall see me.

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

Revelation 17:14These shall war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall

Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Thu 14 Jul 2016, 10:14 pm

Who has the right to judge?

John 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and 
said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a 
stone at her.

We all consider that God will judge mankind in the end for this is what 
is indoctrinated in our minds from the beginning. Another factor 
indoctrinated in people is that judgment is done as and when a person 
dies. Are these Biblical? Today we will see the first point for we are 
always told man is not worthy to judge since he is a sinner.

If we study manuscripts we find the verses John 8:1-11 incident of the 
adulterous woman is not there in the earlier manuscripts but found in 
later. Similarly the verse Matthew 17:21 also is another verse which was 
added later. It is this reason that some of the new translations of 
Bibles like NIV are skipping the verses which were not found in the 
older manuscripts.

In these scriptures we see the strong beliefs of the early Church [after 
the Apostles] are induced into the Gospels. All this happened around 100 
to 200 years after the Apostles. Technically they may not be wrong but 
the problem lies in the importance they give to their belief which has 
caused many to be misled.

It is true sinner man cannot judge for one who is in darkness cannot 
show the way. But those in the light can surely show the way, so those 
who are in Christ can judge but they are to judge according to the light 
(Word) and not according to their understanding or feelings. Judging is 
connected with spiritual maturity.

Jesus tells us it pleased the Father to put Him on the Judgment Seat for 
He is the Son of Man. He did not say Son of God or God the Son but He 
clearly says Son of Man. Even in Revelation the one seated on the 
Judgment Throne is identified as Son of Man and not God or Son of God 
[the Son]. This Man is also described as having the rainbow around Him 
which is a characteristic of Christ [the seven Spirits of God - Holy 
Spirit]. We know the Lord Jesus Christ will be seated on the Judgment 
Seat on Judgment Day but He will not judge as Lord but as man. Jesus 
says even though He is seated in the Judgment Seat yet it is the words 
which He spoke [the Father's Will] which will judge mankind.

Jesus and Paul in some scriptures tell us not to judge but yet in other 
scriptures they question why we cannot discern, which is again judging. 
So we are not to judge in personal capacity but are called to discern 
things through the Word of God. We are not to decide the fate of people 
for we do not know our own fate when we stand before the Judgment Seat. 
Jesus says if we judge people's fate our own will be at risk.

If we see throughout scriptures OT and NT God has always put man in the 
judgment seat ever since man rejected God as king. So at the end also 
God will make a Son of Man [the Prince of Kings] judge us, and this Son 
of Man is Christ.

Jesus Christ as man was without sin and yet He Himself who has been 
given the authority to judge say He will not judge but the Word will 
judge so who are we to judge people? But like Jesus we too are called to 
judge not according to our understanding or our instincts but according 
to the Word.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we pray we be led in the Spirit and not in the flesh; your Word 
says that only those who are led in Spirit become Sons of God. Judging 
and discerning are not things given to children but to the mature. Lord 
we pray we do not walk like blind people not discerning anything nor 
judging the motives and works of worldly men and that of the evil ones...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 17:21Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

Luke 6:37Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye 
shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

Colossians 2:16-17

16Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of 
an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

17Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

Luke 12:56-57

56Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; 
but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

57Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

John 7:24Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous 
judgment.

Ezekiel 22:2Now, thou son of man, wilt thou judge, wilt thou judge the 
bloody city? yea, thou shalt shew her all her abominations.

John 8:15-16

15Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

16And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and 
the Father that sent me.

John 8:26I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent 
me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him.

John 5:22-27

22For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto 
the Son:

23That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He 
that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

24Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth 
on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into 
condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

25Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when 
the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear 
shall live.

26For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to 
have life in himself;

27And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is 
the Son of man.

1 Corinthians 4:5Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord 
come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and 
will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man 
have praise of God.

1 Corinthians 6:2-4

2Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world 
shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

3Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that 
pertain to this life?

4If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them 
to judge who are least esteemed in the church.

Ending one's life

Jonah 1:12 And he said unto them, Take me up, and cast me forth into the 
sea; so shall the sea be calm unto you: for I know that for my sake this 
great tempest is upon you.

In today's scripture we see Jonah knew he was the cause of endangering 
the lives of others in the ship. Jonah desired to save their lives, now 
Jonah could have easily jumped off the ship himself and saved the lives 
of the others but he did not, Jonah instead asked them to take the call 
of throwing him in the dangerous sea to die and saving themselves.

Jonah was a Man of God who spoke to God and to whom God spoke. Jonah 
knew out of his hatred to the Assyrians (Nineveh was the capital of the 
Assyrian kingdom) he was running in the opposite direction. Scripture 
says Jonah went from the presence of the Lord. Jonah was a Man of God 
who knew the Omnipresence Lord, what he was running away from was the 
will of God. God wanted to use Jonah to bring the message repentance to 
the people of Assyria, but Jonah being an Israelite remembered the 
suffering that the Israelites suffered at the hands of the Assyrians 
thus he wanted them to be punished and not saved. For just an 
understanding it would be easier for an Israelite today to love a Nazi 
then for an Israelite at that time to love an Assyrian. The kind of 
suffering the Israelites suffered at the hands of the Assyrian would 
make Hitler a kindergarten student [Hitler was a Catholic who hated Jews 
at that time and he was inspired by the Assyrians; Catholic and Jewish 
relationship changed only during World War II].

Only people, who do not know life and what awaits them after death, 
think of ending it. There are Christians who think since they believe in 
the Lord Jesus Christ they can end their lives any time and they will 
still go to Heaven. Jonah was a Man of God who spoke to the Lord as a 
man spoke to another and he knew the value and purpose of life on earth 
[the Lord spoke to the Prophets through visions or they heard His 
audible voice].

Our faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior cancels the curse of 
Hell in our lives and enables us to go to Heaven. That means if I 
believe (keep believing) in the Lord Jesus Christ, irrespective of my 
sins I am saved from Hell; but then that does not mean I get a green 
ticket to Heaven, it just means that the doors of Heaven which were 
closed to me before are now open. To go to Heaven I need to abide in the 
Will / Word of God which can be done only with the help of the Holy 
Spirit. Bible says those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ become 
children of God [John 1:12] but then Bible says only those who are led 
by the Holy Spirit become Sons of God [Romans 8:14]. When Jesus was 
asked of how one could enter the Kingdom of God He did not say 'believe 
in me and you will enter the Kingdom', He said one need to be born from 
above / remolded in spirit and to do that one would need to be baptized 
in the Holy Spirit and to receive the Holy Spirit one needs to be 
baptized in Jesus Christ [since He paid the price for us to receive His 
Spirit]. So to enter Heaven we need to be baptized both in Jesus Christ 
and His Spirit.

Let me explain this in a simple way. We are like filthy vessels that are 
washed clean when we believe in the Name of the Lord Jesus' Christ. We 
are saved from Hell for we are marked as children of God / His flock so 
as long as we believe in Christ we are saved. Now after that how we use 
this vessel will define our going to Heaven, if we use it as a dustbin 
[filled with worldly pleasures] or as a treasure box [having the Will of 
God in us]. If we die on the spot of our baptism in Christ we would go 
the Heaven for we have not used the vessel as a dustbin, but we may not 
be rich in Heaven.

Jonah was in the Lord and yet he did not end his life himself for he 
knew it would go against the will of God and thus he would endanger his 
entering Heaven.

Christianity does not support Jihadi ideas where a person can end his or 
her life shouting the Lord's name or doing the Lord's work. Such 
Christians in fact may get their names removed from the Book of Life. 
Dying a martyr does not mean killing oneself in the name of the Lord. 
There is only one incident in the Bible where a person killed himself 
and yet was accepted by the Lord as a martyr and saved from Hell and 
that was King Saul.

King Saul lost the battle and knew if he was caught alive the 
Philistines would crucify and mock him until his death. Saul did not 
fear death but just because he considered himself a Man of God once upon 
a time [before the Spirit of God left him] he respected himself. He did 
not want the Philistines to disrespect him so he first asked his shield 
bearer to kill him but when the shield bearer refused Saul fell on his 
sword and killed himself. We know he was saved because when Samuel spoke 
to him Saul told him that today Saul and his sons would join Samuel 
where he was. We also see even though the Spirit of God had left Saul 
yet David considered him an anointed Man of God and did not dare to 
touch his life, he even killed the man who falsely claimed to kill Saul.

Let us understand the purpose of the life which Lord has given us. If we 
do not respect this purpose can we say we fulfilled the Will of the 
Father? If we do not fulfill the Will of the Father can we be confident 
to enter Heaven on Judgment Day? We do not have to fear death for our 
life and death is in the hand of God. Dying a martyr does not mean to 
die for the Lord but means to be killed for the Lord's Name. Our purpose 
alive is to save souls for the Lord and work as soldiers of the Kingdom 
of God; we need to always remember an alive soldier is better than a 
thousand dead.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are Creator and Almighty God. You alone have life eternal 
within yourself and this You have given this ability to only to your Son 
our Lord. We Lord are made by You and have life for a period but You 
have made it possible for us to live eternally in Heaven through the 
Tree of Life. You Lord are the giver of Life and You alone have the 
right to take it away. Lord we pray your people realize that taking 
one's own life would amount to rejecting your Will and thus can 
disqualify us from entering your Kingdom...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

John 1:2But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the 
sons [children] of God, even to them that believe on his name:

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

Touching and healing

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

Today's scripture says Jesus healed many people and this drove the 
people crazy that all wanted to get healed so everyone started touching 
Him. It is written as many touched Him were healed and delivered.

Question is does one need to touch to heal?

If not, then why are we told to lay hands to heal?

For that we need to understand what heals.

It is mercy of God that heals. We can get this mercy by praying to God. 
But Bible says God has mercy of whom He desires and does not on whom He 
desires. So praying is no guaranty for getting healed. Those who lack 
faith can keep praying and praying continually and may get healed, like 
the old woman who pleaded with the judge continually and was given 
relief. But it is written in the next verse when the Son of Man comes 
will He find faith?

Another way of getting mercy is faith. Faith draws mercy so when we have 
faith we automatically draw mercy, so we do not need to plead to God for 
mercy. As faith grows and becomes authority we not only get assured of 
healing, we can command healings. Jesus was a man of authority thus He 
healed people. When we peak healings into people's lives we are 
commanding healings and thus not exercising faith but exercising authority.

When we touch people we increase faith and it is faith that causes 
healing. Another way of healing the Bible says is by applying olive oil. 
It does not suggest using actual olive oil but olive oil symbolizes 
testimony. Sharing testimony increases faith and thus heals people. 
Another way of increasing faith which most Preachers use is preaching or 
worshiping God. When people hear preachings of encouragement or when 
they worship God in spirit their faith increases very much and thus 
brings in healings. Bible shows people getting healed by dipping 
themselves in a river, touching objects, applying oil and even by the 
falling of shadows. It was none of the objects that caused healings but 
it was faith that caused healing. Healings can be permanent or 
temporary. Faith in God causes permanent healing but faith in Man of God 
may not. Bible says whom the Son sets free indeed. We a good example of 
this is when Jesus healed 10 lepers, but only one was made whole.

When we understand sin and sickness and how they are related, then we 
will understand how faith healings happen. It is from the spirit that 
the healing is manifested into the flesh.

Like touching, testimony increases faith and brings healings likewise 
faithlessness can block healings even if the faith of the healer is 
exercised or the healer is a man of authority, that is why Jesus could 
not heal people in some cities/towns. In these places we see Jesus 
healed by applying spit, mud and part by part healing to as to destroy 
their faithlessness by doing silly things [some Preachers unknowingly 
use this approach too, like one used to hit people where they needed 
healing later he realized his mistake when his wife died of sickness].

Faith that comes from understanding the Word not only heals but also 
prevents sickness in those areas. Maturity in spirit builds immunity 
both of the body as well in the spirit and inner-man.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are our creator and God. All life is from You Lord. We pray 
Lord your people understand life and understand how being far from You 
can bring sickness and spiritual problems. Lord we pray we increase in 
faith, faith in You and your Word so that we are more and more immune to 
sickness and spiritual problems...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Exodus 33:19And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, 
and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be 
gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will 
shew mercy.

Psalms 85:10Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace 
have kissed each other.

Luke 8:5-8

5Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her 
continual coming she weary me.

6And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.

7And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto 
him, though he bear long with them?

8I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son 
of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Luke 17:12-19 [ten lepers]

Matthew 9:29-30

29Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto 
you.

30And their eyes were opened; and Jesus straitly charged them, saying, 
See that no man know it.

Matthew 12:13Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he 
stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.

Matthew 15:28Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is 
thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made 
whole from that very hour.

Acts 14:9-10

9The same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving 
that he had faith to be healed,

10Said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and 
walked.

Knowing the Kingdom of God and Jesus

Acts 28:23 And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him 
into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, 
persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out 
of the prophets, from morning till evening.

I have a close relationship with the Lord yet at times the Lord does not 
fail to surprise me. He shows Himself like someone moving around with me 
and instructing me in the things I did or will do.

Since a few days a large group of Apologists (many among them are 
theologians) were in discussion of understanding in deeper depths of who 
God is. Yesterday I was discussing with them on the God the Son and they 
were so impatient to conclude it in a short time only a very few were 
patient.

Like I said before I do not choose the message for the day but pray and 
get it on randomly selection with the understanding of Urim and the 
Thummim which were in the breastplate of the high priest and by which 
the Lord spoke.

In today's message we see Paul spend hours explaining about the Kingdom 
of God and about Jesus and that too not to ordinary people but to 
religious chiefs of the Jews. For a person to become a rabbi or priest 
one needed to spend years studying scriptures and working as intern 
under another person in that field [they followed Samuel's system of 
school of Prophets but Jesus became a rabbi according to the system of 
Moses by fasting 40 days in the wilderness]. So these people were 
seasoned in scriptures and in traditions. Note they knew the language in 
which the scriptures were written, they did not study translations as we 
do. Yet it is written Paul spend hours and hours with them expounding 
scriptures to them. Yet it is written at the end some understood and 
accepted, while others did not so rejected. It is interesting after this 
the prophecy of Isaiah is written as to why those who did not understand 
will not understand.

It is very say that today we have Christians who want the Gospel in 2 
lines and the summary of the Bible in 10 lines.

Our God is neither a poor God nor His Kingdom so cheap that it can be 
understood in 10 lines. Paul was the most knowledgeable person at that 
time even then Paul knew what he knew was just a glimpse of the Truth 
and there was a lot more to learn and understand (also note there were 
many things that Paul knew which he did not write / speak out).

Other than miniaturizing God and His Kingdom we have another problem 
that is of being satisfied in spirit but being thirsty in the flesh. The 
Lord said to be thirsty in the spirit not in the flesh. The living water 
(understanding that comes from God) satisfies our that thirst forever, 
but creates a new thirst to know something new which we were not aware 
existed at that time. So a Man or Woman of God will always be in thirst 
but his or her thirst will not be the same thirst that was before, for 
when God gives us understanding it is perfect understanding that is forever.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are Omnipotent and Almighty God and You nor your Kingdom is 
comprehensible. Lord we pray we do not try to put Christianity in a 
matchbox. Let us approach it like a horizon which as we reach to it, it 
exposes new and greater things and moves further. Lord your Word says 
when the Truth is whole in us we will be set free from sin and death the 
things You have created us to overcome. We pray for passion, endurance 
along with patience...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Exodus 28:30 And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim 
and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron's heart, when he goeth in 
before the LORD: and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the children of 
Israel upon his heart before the LORD continually.

Acts 28:17-27

17 And it came to pass, that after three days Paul called the chief of 
the Jews together: and when they were come together, he said unto them, 
Men and brethren, though I have committed nothing against the people, or 
customs of our fathers, yet was I delivered prisoner from Jerusalem into 
the hands of the Romans.

18Who, when they had examined me, would have let me go, because there 
was no cause of death in me.

19But when the Jews spake against it, I was constrained to appeal unto 
Caesar; not that I had ought to accuse my nation of.

20For this cause therefore have I called for you, to see you, and to 
speak with you: because that for the hope of Israel I am bound with this 
chain.

21And they said unto him, We neither received letters out of Judaea 
concerning thee, neither any of the brethren that came shewed or spake 
any harm of thee.

22But we desire to hear of thee what thou thinkest: for as concerning 
this sect, we know that every where it is spoken against.

23 And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into 
his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, 
persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out 
of the prophets, from morning till evening.

24And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not.

25And 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,

26Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall 
not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive:

27For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull 
of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with 
their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, 
and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Temple, Church or classroom

Luke 21:37 And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at 
night he went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of 
Olives.

We see throughout the Bible Jesus did come to the temple but His purpose 
was not that of the others. He came so that He could meet the people and 
reach out to them He never came to the temple to reach out to God His 
Father. Whenever He needed to communicate to the Father or be ministered 
by Angels He went out into an isolated place.

Yesterday a few brothers were in discussion about the Hindi word for 
'Church' and most said 'mandir'. Mandir means temple and refers to the 
monument or structure. If one tries to translate the word 'Church' in 
languages of people who do not know God one will most probably make 
mistakes for they will equate it to their belief or understanding. For 
the Jews also who were and are far from God we see the same issue, for 
them too temple was and is the structure but for Jesus it was a class 
room where He was a teacher. When it was a Sabbath Jesus went to the 
temple to take opportunity to reach out to the people there, later as 
Jesus became known through the land people came on normal week days to 
hear Him. He did not need to run after them, they came to Him.

When God gave the design of the Tabernacle it was in a tent not a 
permanent structure. The Greek word for tabernacle comes from two word 
'vessel' and 'shadow'. Paul says our body symbolizes a tent, a tent 
since it is a temporary residence.

As Christians we all are told we need to be part of a Church and be 
rooted in the [local] Church. People are expected to be present every 
Sunday service or the day of service however mature they may be as 
Christians.

Is Church a place where God is there? No

God is everywhere but Church is the place where one experience the 
presence of God and it is when people come together and worship Him. It 
is the people and their worshipping God that causes them to experience 
the presence of the glory of God.

Does everyone need to go to Church to experience God? No

When a person is grown in the Lord he or she will experience God 
anywhere and everywhere, and does not need a gathering to do so. A 
mature person should go to Church for the people to encourage them, to 
minister to them, to give and not to receive from God. The things a 
spiritually mature person receives in Church are fellowship of the 
people, their love, their support, their encouragement and joy to see 
the fruit of their work.

Like Jesus [as man] those who are truly mature in the Lord come to 
Church to give and not to receive, for them Church is a gathering of 
people whom they need to build in the Lord.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You desire we all be one like You are one. You also desire we make 
our feeble parts strong for feeble parts can hinder us to enter the 
Kingdom of Heaven. We pray we understand the importance of the oneness 
and we understand how important it is to build others in You. Lord we 
pray we also understand in the start You send the Apostles in twos but 
when they received the Holy Spirit and were baptized in Him, they moved 
around alone and gathered people to themselves and nurtured them in You. 
We pray we follow them for they followed You and your Word...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Exodus 35:11The tabernacle, his tent, and his covering, his taches, and 
his boards, his bars, his pillars, and his sockets,

Exodus 39:32Thus was all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of the 
congregation finished: and the children of Israel did according to all 
that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they.

Jeremiah 35:7Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant 
vineyard, nor have any: but all your days ye shall dwell in tents; that 
ye may live many days in the land where ye be strangers.

Hebrews 11:9By faith he went to live in the land of promise, as in a 
foreign land, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, heirs with him of 
the same promise.

2 Corinthians 5:1For we know that if the tent, which is our earthly 
home, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with 
hands, eternal in the heavens.

2 Corinthians 5:4For while we are still in this tent, we groan, being 
burdened - not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further 
clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.

The Last Supper - Breaking of Bread

Luke 22:11And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master 
saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the 
passover with my disciples?

Breaking of bread is done is almost every mainstream Christian Church 
yet it is hard to find any Church that actually does it. Every Church or 
denomination will have their own understanding on this. I have seen 
sweet buns with tutti-frutti been broken in the Lord's name, some use 
Indian bread (chappati) and break it in the Lord's name. There are some 
who use wafer and some who use cake (bread baked or made with oil).

The Catholic Church uses wafer as communion and this they introduced it 
in 1200AD, before that they used normal bread. The mischief was not just 
replacing the bread with wafer but they gave it a shape and embedded it 
with designs which are questionable. The stand on which this wafer 
(communion) is put on gives you the feeling they are worshipping the Sun 
and not Christ. Sun worship in name of Christ is visible even in other 
traditions of this church. Some of the Believer Churches feel Breading 
of Bread is too sacred so they have it once a month or even once a year.

To understand what Breaking of the Bread is we need to understand two 
things one what Jesus and His disciples celebrated that day and another 
is the sacrifice of guilt which Jesus claimed it to be while sharing the 
bread. Paul too explains this it in his letter to Corinthians.

Let us understand what kind of feast that they were celebrating. This 
was not the main Passover but was start of the week the Feast of 
Unleavened Bread which was supposed to be celebrated the week after the 
Passover week but was celebrated together ever since the Jews were in 
exile in Babylon. They did this since they did not have the freedom to 
have long celebrations. You will find 3 Gospel go along with what they 
did and one with what they were supposed to do. Jesus did not break the 
law by celebrating the feast of Unleavened Bread before the Passover 
since He was the Paschal Lamb.

Christians think it was the Passover because of Luke 22:7 which is 
inaccurately translated. If one looks up BYZ or BGT manuscripts text one 
will find it is not 'then came the day [period] of unleavened bread, 
when the passover must be killed', the text says 'came then the day 
[period] of unleavened bread, in which the passover must be killed'. The 
feast of Unleavened Bread was not a day feast but was a week feast and 
that day was the first day of the feast. Matthew 26:17, Mark 14:1, Mark 
14:12 and Luke 22:1 also confirms this. In John 19:14 it says Jesus was 
crucified on the day the Paschal lamb was killed. Jesus was the Paschal 
Lamb of God that took away our sins and He fulfilled every condition as 
stated in the books of Moses, one of them was the lamb was bought into 
the house and kept under observation for 5 days. Jesus was arrested on 
the start of the week of the Feast of Unleavened Bread / Passover. He 
was taken from place to place and beaten for about 5 days both by the 
Jews and the Romans before He was crucified. It was the Romans who 
really bruised Him and tore His flesh from His bones. The Jews whipped 
with a normal whip and the Romans did with the multi strand whip which 
had bone and metal tied at its ends.

To understand the type of bread we need to understand the 4 types of 
bread that are written in the Bible [Exodus 29:23]. We cannot take 
leavened bread, wafer or cake (baked with oil) and say it is unleavened 
bread even though they are counted as bread. The basic requirement was 
it had to be bread and secondly it did not have yeast, any leavening 
agent or baked with oil. This is a statutes and it is done for 
understanding what we are doing. If we do not break bread at the Lord's 
Table we do not become sinner but when we do the right way as instructed 
we will understand who Christ is. Like in Luke 24:30-31 which says when 
Jesus broke bread and gave them their eyes opened and they came to know Him.

The Bread also stands as a sacrifice of Guilt which meant for sins which 
are done unintentionally or without knowing. It is by this understanding 
Paul tries to explain to approach the table in a worthy manner for how 
we can ask for forgiveness for sins unknown when we have not repented 
and asked for sins which are known. This is like mocking the sacrifice 
and that is why many have fallen sick and died.

Let us do all things with understand. Christianity is not into 
traditions which are things blindly followed, Christianity has statutes 
which are things done with understanding and once the understanding 
comes the doing is not necessary.Christianity is all about spirituality 
and everything is rooted in unseen even if it manifests in the seen.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord Your Word says that Daily Sacrifice would be taken away for many 
years and we see Lord this prophecy is true. Even though people do 
things yet they do not do it as instructed and thus do something else 
and still desire results. Lord your people are filling themselves with 
leaven and thus do not know You. They are bringing worldly understanding 
into the Word thus do not know the Word. We pray they not only 
physically but spiritually also eat unleavened bread at your table...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 26:17Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the 
disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we 
prepare for thee to eat the passover?

Mark 14:1After two days was the feast of the passover, and of unleavened 
bread: and the chief priests and the scribes sought how they might take 
him by craft, and put him to death.

Mark 14:12And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the 
passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and 
prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?

Luke 22:1Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called 
the Passover.

John 19:14And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the 
sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

Exodus 29:23And one loaf of bread, and one cake of oiled bread, and one 
wafer out of the basket of the unleavened bread that is before the LORD:

Luke 24:30-31

30And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and 
blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.

31And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of 
their sight.

Exodus 12:15Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day 
ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth 
leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall 
be cut off from Israel.

Exodus 12:18In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at 
even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of 
the month at even.

Leviticus 23:5In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the 
LORD'S passover.

Exodus 12:3-6

3Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day 
of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the 
house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:

4And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his 
neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the 
souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

5Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall 
take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

6And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and 
the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the 
evening.

Matthew 24:45-50

45Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the 
ninth hour.

46And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, 
Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou 
forsaken me?

47Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man 
calleth for Elias.

48And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with 
vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.

49The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.

50Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the spirit.

John 1:29The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, 
Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

Daniel 8:11Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and 
by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his 
sanctuary was cast down.

Daniel 12:11And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken 
away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a 
thousand two hundred and ninety days.

Master calleth thee

Mark 10:49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they
call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth
thee.

We would find it normal that Bartimaeus was shouting out to Jesus so Jesus
called him unto him. It is only when we get into details we understand
things better.

We see Bartimaeus was shouting out to Jesus as ‘Son of David have mercy on
me’, by this he was acknowledging a prophecy which was given to David of a
king whose kingdom would be forever. Firstly Bartimaeus was not a Jew by
his name we know he was a Roman. So for him to acknowledge Jesus as Son of
David was exceptional.

We see even though Jesus could hear Bartimaeus shout yet Jesus did not
shout back but asked His disciples to bring him. It is written ‘they’
called out to him. It was not that they all shouted to him. If they had to
shout any one of them would do that. It is written ‘they’ because it was
like a chain calling. One asked the other to call him. You may wonder why I
am getting into this detail. Every word in the Bible has purpose and makes
us learn the hidden things of the Kingdom of God.

They were in Jericho and it was only when a historian described the way
this city was made that I could understand this little details including
why God bought the walls of the city down at the shout of Joshua (his army
and got every person killed leaving for Rahab and her family).

This city was the main city of the Moabites and it was because of them
thousands of Israelites had died due to plague. Moses in his song after
crossing the Red sea acknowledges the Moabites as might men. The Moabites
were famous for defeating a tribe of giants whom they called Emims
(terror). The Lord took the Israelites on a churning (testimony) trip and
built the second generation (leaving for Joshua and Caleb) and made them
battle ready to confront the Moabites. The lord made them so strong for
battle that the Moabites feared them. He also made them spiritually which
can be seen by the fact that none spoke a word or uttered a sound for 7
days even while they marched around the walls. It was only when Joshua
commanded they shouted and the walls fell.

The Lord could have got them into the city in many other ways like He got
the spies in and out. But the Lord personally became instrument to being
the walls down. The historian explained there were two parallel walls that
protected Jericho and between these walls the city had built various
temples of various gods (they were unified like the tower of Babel which
was also a common temple). When one studied what they did as sacrifice in
these temples one would understand the wrath of God on them for not sparing
any soul.

During the time of Jesus these people had rebuild the city, its walls along
with its temples. Even though the Romans ruled this city yet the people did
their old things and the Romans were party to it. Jericho was a rich man’s
city and the area between the walls were like outside city limits but still
under protection, so beggars and exiled criminals dwelled in this place
where the temples existed.

Bartimaeus (he was son of a senior Roman officer Timaeus) was a Roman who
was made blind as a punishment and was exiled, so he dwelled between these
walls. When Bartimaeus was shouting Jesus was aware of His surroundings.
Jesus was aware of the temples around and thus did not shout back but by
word of mouth called Bartimaeus unto Him. Was Jesus becoming secular of
respecting other beliefs?

Understands other gods do not exist, so break idols, temples or insulting
people and their beliefs does not help the lost people it only makes them
harder. By the power of God people do not change, it is only when they see
the glory of God through the Spirit of God that they change. Seven
symbolizes the Holy Spirit (seven Spirits of God) and it is only through
the Holy Spirit only we can change people (Joshua and his army marched for
seven days around Jericho’s walls).

You may have heard many testimonies of people accepting Christ just for a
simple scripture which we may have not dreamt could i.e. the son of Hamas
leader who was president of their youth wing changed and accepted Christ
just by the scripture where Christ said ‘forgive your enemies’. It did not
take great theology to change him; it was the Holy Spirit who did it.

We are called to battle in the spirit and not in the flesh so let not human
words do the battle. Let the right words at the right time, led by the Holy
Spirit do the job. Let us be shut and speak in the Lord’s time to bring the
spiritual walls down permanently and destroy the plans of the enemy in the
life of those lost.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, there are times we see right and wrong and we in the flesh try to
battle the wrong but instead harden people. We may try to call it holy
anger but anything that does not bring good result cannot be called holy.
You God are Holy and everything of You brings good result. We pray Lord we
learn to sync according to your timing and not our timing...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Joshua 6:1-10, 20-24

Numbers 22:4-6

4 And Moab said unto the elders of Midian, Now shall this company lick up
all that are round about us, as the ox licketh up the grass of the field.
And Balak the son of Zippor was king of the Moabites at that time.

5 He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to Pethor,
which is by the river of the land of the children of his people, to call
him, saying, Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt: behold, they
cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me:

6 Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for they are too
mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail, that we may smite them, and
that I may drive them out of the land: for I wot that he whom thou blessest
is blessed, and he whom thou cursest is cursed.

Exodus 15:15 Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of
Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan
shall melt away.

The city and the temple

Daniel 9:26And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, 
but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall 
destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a 
flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

Today you talk of any Christian and chances are 9 out of 10 would be 
supporters of Israel. Ask them why as Christians they are staunch 
supports of a Jewish country? They will answer because the Bible says 
so. They will point to scriptures concerning the promise to the Jewish 
nation and how at the end Israel comes in glory with its twelve tribes.

In today's scripture we see concerning the coming again of Christ there 
are events related to the city of Jerusalem and the Temple. Is the 
Jerusalem mentioned here related to the city made of bricks and stones? 
Is the Temple mentioned here the temple created by Solomon and rebuild 
twice later.

When we read the teachings of Jesus or Paul who did the right 
interpretation of scriptures (OT) we see they did not in any way give 
any emphasizes neither to the city of Jerusalem nor to the Jewish temple 
in Jerusalem.

There are some facts which people misunderstand like Gentile does not 
means a non-Jew or non-Christian. Gentile in the OT was a term given for 
the lost Jew or Jew who followed other gods or kept the traditions of 
the pagans. This term originated with the people of Galilee (even during 
the time of Jesus Mary followed the traditions of the gentiles since she 
was from Galilee). Samaria was part of northern Israel and was the 
capital of kingdom of Israel when Israel was divided into kingdom of 
Judah and Israel. It was the Israelites of this nation which were called 
Samarians and later were known by their following of beliefs and 
traditions when both nations became one during the time of Jesus. When 
Jesus or Paul said they came for the gentiles, they meant Lost Sheep.

When Bible says Israel it means Prince who has power with God in other 
words means Sons of God. It is the Holy Spirit who makes a person a true 
Israel and this happens when one (old person) wrestles with God's image 
in one's self like Jacob wrestled with God and was called Israel.

Let us not forget the fact God is God of all creation even though He is 
known by the title as God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He is God of 
every nation even though Israel is historically connected with Him and 
His Christ. No person is distinguished before God by his race but only 
by his faith and his works of faith.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we pray your people understand your Word not by its text but by its 
understanding according to your Spirit. Holy Spirit open the hearts and 
minds of the people so that they know your Word in its Truth and that 
they may be set free from the bonds of sin...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Daniel 9:25-27

25Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the 
commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the 
Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street 
shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

26And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not 
for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy 
the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, 
and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the 
midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to 
cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it 
desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be 
poured upon the desolate.

Luke 21:24And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led 
away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of 
the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

Acts 15:14Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the 
Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name.

Romans 2:29But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is 
that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is 
not of men, but of God.

Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Be afraid of God's Word

Habakkuk 3:2O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, 
revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years 
make known; in wrath remember mercy.

Many a times I have people who question my messages, they say the Gospel 
is a Gospel of grace and the love so why are your messages at times so 
harsh. In today's message as Habakkuk was praying upon Shigionoth [which 
means being doubtful or going astray] he starts with saying he heard the 
words of the Lord and was afraid but he ends the sentence with 'in wrath 
remember mercy'.

Who can say 'I love the sword drawn out against me'? The Word of God is 
a sword; Paul [supposed to be the writer of Hebrews] describes it as 
double edged sword that separates the bone joints from the marrow. Bone 
symbolizes character, bone joints symbolize the working of the character 
and marrow symbolizes the spirit, so the Word of God works between 
working of our character and our spirit. It separates our character from 
our spirit. Unless the Word does not do the piercing and separating then 
the Spirit of God cannot work on the character and change it. In the 
book of Jeremiah the Lord says is not my Word like fire or like hammer. 
Can anyone say I love fire or hammer when it works on me?

The Gospel (Good News) is the message of hope when there was no hope, 
when all doors were shut the Lord opened a door. It is the Gospel and 
its acceptance that brings us to see the Word and understand it via the 
Spirit of God.

When Habakkuk said 'I fear your Word' he also said 'in wrath remember 
mercy'. It is like saying I fear the sword but I trust the hand that 
holds the sword to be merciful.

We know the sword of God will spare no one, not even the Angels but 
those who know the Hand that holds the sword will not be afraid of 
death. Jesus Christ as man manifested the Hand in the flesh. Let us like 
Habakkuk fear the Lord but also at the same time have confidence in Him 
by knowing Him through Christ. Let us not be foolish to say I know the 
hand so I have no fear, let us remember when Christ comes again He will 
manifest the sword on Judgment Day for it will be the sword that will 
judge us.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are a Righteous and Holy God and no corrupting can exist 
before You. Lord when we see your Word thought come to us who can 
survive this sword but as we know You through your Son Jesus Christ we 
have confidence in You as being merciful Father. We pray Lord there 
exist both fear and confidence in us to that we walk in the way You have 
set for us...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Jeremiah 23:29Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a 
hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?

Hebrews 4:12For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than 
any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and 
spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts 
and intents of the heart.

John 12:48He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one 
that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him 
in the last day.

Die to live

Matthew 10:39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth
his life for my sake shall find it.

Across religions we find death is related to life be it religions like
Hinduism, Islam or even peaceful religions like Jainism you will find dead
and life related beliefs for all of them encourage suicide in one way or
the other, be it Sati, Jihad or Sallekhana. They all promote natural death
with a promise or reward.

Today’s scripture projects Christianity unlike other religions although it
demands death it does not demand a natural death but a carnal death.
Christianity does not give right to anyone to take anyone’s life even the
life of oneself. In the OT when the Spirit of God was not given to man, man
was given the right battle in the natural so as to defend themselves or
even attack to defend the interest of the community. But after Jesus made
peace with God and man and the Spirit of God is given to the Church, so now
we battle spiritually and not in the flesh, for scripture says the Lord
fights our battles.

To be a Christian is most difficult and if one is told all about what one
needs to do to be a Christian right in the start, I doubt any person would
desire to be a Christian. It is only by the grace and help of the Holy
Spirit we travel this journey of change, step by step.

Our spirit life is our real life and this natural life which we live in
this flesh is a temporary and just a very minute fraction of our spirit
life. Whenever I preach on life I always tell people Satan is behind your
life and even God is behind your life. Satan wants to destroy your spirit
life so he tries to temp you to enjoy your natural life, thus leads you to
all kind of pleasures of the flesh, eyes and mind. God on the other hand
desires we have eternal spiritual life, a life of abundance but for that He
demands we kill our carnal life. He does not temp like Satan does but puts
us to tests where He causes us to make the choice. With God as He puts us
to tests He even supports us to make the right choice and does not put us
to a test wherein we will fail.

Today’s message tells us if we lose our life for the sake of Christ we will
find it. It does not mean to die shouting the name of Jesus Christ like
Muslim Jihadist do. It is when we stand for the purpose of God and for who
He is even at the cost of our own lives, we will have life.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are God and our eternal home. It is only in You Lord can we have
eternal life and life of abundance. Lord we pray we understand our
priorities and discern good from bad, we pray we see all things through our
spiritual eyes and not through our carnal eyes. We pray we put our carnal
flesh to death so that we live eternal in spirit...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

John 3:3-7

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

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

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

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

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

1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of
incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

Punishment of those think God is good all the time

Zephaniah 1:13 Therefore their goods shall become a booty, and their houses
a desolation: they shall also build houses, but not inhabit them; and they
shall plant vineyards, but not drink the wine thereof.

We have n number of times heard this song by Don Moen ‘God is good all the
time’. This is indeed an excellent song and it is true that God is good all
the time and He alone is good. When a man said good to Jesus, we see Jesus
was upset and pointed out as man He too was not worthy to be called good
and that God alone was good. Now people can misunderstand get confused
since Jesus being Lord how gould He not be good, this confusion is due to
the Greek in accurate translation. There are many words translated as good
such as ‘kalos’. The word used as good in Matthew 19:17, Mark 10:18 & Luke
18:19, is the Greek word ‘agathos’ (occurs 77 times in NT) which points
more towards being upright.

Bible says no man was found righteous therefore Lord (the Son) became man
and became our sacrifice. Jesus as man was indeed righteous but when Jesus
used the word agathos He used it in term of Holiness and not righteousness.
Paul in Ephesians 5:9 used this same word in a conjugated form for the 3
Fruits not listed in Galatians and is translated as ‘in all goodness’.

To understand this we need to understand 2 points, one that the Heavenly
beings in Heaven call God by the name Holy, Holy, Holy and by no other
name, this is just one of the characteristics of His Nature yet highlighted
above all. Another point is that in John 1:18 it is written no one / no
being (does not mean just man but all living beings including the Heavenly
beings as Angels) other than the Son have seen the Father. That means
leaving for the Son not even the Angels have seen the Father.

If we say God is good (Holy) then we as sinful being or beings still
dwelling is sin, cannot expect to have any relationship with God, so we
need to separate ourselves from our carnal nature and live a life of
holiness.

In today’s message God is telling us those who say ‘God is good’ and do not
change, are thinking God would not do anything; they are going to be in for
a surprise. God tells us in today’s message these Christians would see the
greatest thing about them lose its hold, be it name, fame, riches,
‘talents’ or anointing. God continues to say the house they built will be
deserted and this house would also mean a church or congregation or
ministry. Lastly God says the vineyards they build would not give them wine
which means the people they led to be disciples would leave them or will be
fruitless.

People may say why today this message?

Bible says in season God inspects His people or the situation on earth and
takes action accordingly like He did during Noah, Abraham, Jeremiah etc.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, God in the Bible it is written in time and season as things start to
manifest beyond its boundaries, You intervene and do the needful. Lord
today there are many religious and famous Men and Women of God who are not
preaching of repentance nor of fear of God. They preach of ‘Prosperity
Gospel’, ‘Hyper Grace’ and ‘Once Saved forever Saved’; by this they are
leading people to destruction. Lord we pray they are stopped in their
works of destruction and your people saved...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is
none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the
commandments.

John 1:18 No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in
the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

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

Revelation 4:8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him;
and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying,
Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

Isaiah 6:2,3

2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he
covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did
fly.

3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of
hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

1 Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

Zephaniah 1:12-14

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

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

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

Call him here

Mark 10:49And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And 
they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he 
calleth thee.

The testimony of Bartimaeus is given in 3 Gospels of Mark, Luke and 
Matthew. In Mark and Luke the testimony is the same only with Mark 
identifying the person as Bartimaeus and Mark also expresses the way he 
approached Jesus (casting away his garment), while in Matthew the 
testimony speaks of two blind persons shouting out to Jesus as 'Son of 
David' and then Jesus heals them both. Some may think there is a problem 
here.

There are people who think we should give some area for variations in 
testimonies so they take these with a pinch of salt. It is good no 
person thought of correcting these so called variations like people did 
to the Quran. The Bible is the only book which has been reproduced 
honestly even though people have not understood it fully or though there 
would be errors. It is over ages we have learnt more and we have come to 
understand more of the Bible's accuracy.

Similar to the variations in this testimony is the testimony of man with 
a legion of evil spirits. Matthew talks of two men while others talk of 
one. Some may thing this is a 'Matthew' problem of misreporting but when 
we takes into record the places which Jesus came from to perform the 
deliverance we will find these were two different incidents. A Christian 
historian in his book 'The Search' documented the dates of these events 
and all other events of the Gospel in their chronicle order.

Bartimuaes was not the name of the person but was his identity, the word 
means son of Timaeus. This name was not a Hebrew / Aramaic name so he 
was not a Jew. The name was a Roman name so this man was a Roman. 
Someone researched on this person and found this man Timaeus was not 
ordinary man but was a general in the army. His son was not born blind 
but was made blind as punishment for rebelling against the Roman 
authority and he was casted out of Jericho to beg for his living.

Jericho was not an ordinary town; it was an uptown where the richie 
riches of that time lived. The city was like a fortress with mountains 
/hills on three sides and huge walls on one side. There were two walls 
back to back set as fence with temples of various gods in between these 
walls. It was in this place (in between the walls) where the beggars and 
the outcast of Jericho dwelled. When God bought down the walls of 
Jericho He did so because of the unity of these pagan religions, similar 
to what He did with the tower of Babylon (which was also a united 
temple; it was not the physical height of the tower that troubled God).

The Romans never had any problem with Jesus and in fact they were happy 
with Him since He disturbed the powerful lobby of Pharisees and 
Sadducees. This lobby desired many a times to kill Jesus but could not, 
for they were under the rule of the Romans so they could not take the 
life of any person. They could punish but not kill (unless stoned in 
accordance of Jewish law for adultery and breaking the Sabbath - which 
they tried many a times with Jesus).

It was only after the healing of Baritimaeus that the Pharisees saw 
their evil desire could materialize since Baritimaeus was a person 
punished by the Roman authority and when Jesus healed him it was 
considered a confrontation to the Roman authority.

Bartimaeus was not a Jew so he would have not known what the title 'Son 
of David' title meant, but the other man with him may have started 
shouting the name so Bartimaeus in his desire to be healed too started 
shouting. This faith in Jesus caused Jesus to take note of them and 
called them to Him and healed them. Jesus knew what would be the 
consequence of Him healing this man but He did this to fulfill 
righteousness. Had Jesus not healed this man the Jews may have not been 
able to crucify Him.

Today, Lord is saying if we acknowledge Him and truly seek Him even if 
we do not know Him very well yet He will go to any extent to restore us, 
like He did to Bartimaeus.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are God and our Father. Heavenly Father your love for us has 
no boundaries. You have and will go to any extend to reach out to us and 
help us. It is our lack of faith that becomes a wall between You and us. 
You do not break this wall for it will hurt us more like an egg broken 
from inside brings life but broken from outside destroys it. You have 
given us the seed of faith to break the wall of faithlessness from the 
inside so as to reach out to You and be restored. Help us use this faith 
and be restored...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Mark 10:46-52

46And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his 
disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of 
Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.

47And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, 
and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.

48And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the 
more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.

49And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call 
the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.

50And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.

51And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do 
unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.

52And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. 
And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

Luke 18:35-43

35And it came to pass, that as he was come nigh unto Jericho, a certain 
blind man sat by the way side begging:

36And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant.

37And they told him, that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by.

38And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.

39And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: 
but he cried so much the more, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.

40And Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought unto him: and when he 
was come near, he asked him,

41Saying, What wilt thou that I shall do unto thee? And he said, Lord, 
that I may receive my sight.

42And Jesus said unto him, Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved thee.

43And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying 
God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.

Matthew 20:29-34

29And as they departed from Jericho, a great multitude followed him.

30And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard 
that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou 
Son of David.

31And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: 
but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of 
David.

32And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I 
shall do unto you?

33They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.

34So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and 
immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.

The bed of the King Solomon

Psalms 3: 7,8 Behold his bed, which is Solomon's; threescore valiant men 
are about it, of the valiant of Israel. They all hold swords, being 
expert in war: every man hath his sword upon his thigh because of fear 
in the night.

Like the Catholic Church idolises men (humans) like Mary, the Pope, dead 
Saints, so also the Jewish Church did (and does) to people like Moses 
(Law of Moses), Elijah (Prophet who kept coming back), David (Star of 
David the symbol of Jewish people) and Solomon (his riches and wisdom). 
You can know this by the fact of their (both Catholic and Jewish 
Churches) over exaggerating things connected to them.

Take for instance the legend of Solomon meeting Queen Sheba as written 
in Jewish Targum Sheni states Solomon could talk to animals. One day as 
the kings assembled in Solomon's courtyard merry with wine and the 
animals were dancing before him. He noticed a bird (mountain-cock or 
hoopoe) was missing and on being summoned the bird spoke of its 3 months 
travel to a land exceeding rich with lots of gold, a land Solomon was 
not aware of, so the bird suggests to go and summon the queen of that 
land, which he allows and that is how Queen of Sheba lands in Jerusalem. 
On arrival she finds Solomon in a palace with the flooring of glass, the 
queen thinking the floor is water and Solomon was sitting on water she 
smiles.

Mohammad believing this fairy-tale [like he did with all the heretic 
Gospels and included incidents from them into the Quran] added that 
Queen of Sheba while walking lifted her dress and revealed her hairy 
legs which were hairy as a goat. One of the Islamic scholars actually 
believed the legs were goat legs thus made a story as to how she got 
them, that her mother envied (had relationship with) a goat. So we see 
how tales got added to religion made of men.

Today's scripture has nothing to do with Solomon the son of David and is 
symbolic like the whole book Songs of Solomon. Commentators like Barnes 
and Gills say here Solomon symbolizes Christ. The word Solomon means 
peace and symbolizes the King of Peace like Melchizedek king of Salem 
did when he bought bread and wine.

The threescore (60) valiant men with sword (is singular not plural) is 
symbolic since the word sword refers to the Word of God. Noah to Jesus 
is 3000 years and Jesus would come again before the 3000 years are over 
(on the third day He resurrected). Daniel says time and time and a half 
is the period the book is sealed for. Jesus says the sign of 3 days 
(after 3 days) is a sign for the wicked.

Note Chapter 3 of Songs of Solomon starts with Daughters of Jerusalem 
and ends with Daughters of Zion. Zion and Jerusalem in natural were 
names of the same city but in spiritual they refer to different stages 
of spiritual growth.

Paul in his letter to Thessalonians says people before him and those 
later who sleep in Christ will rise on the Day of Judgment when the 
Groom comes for His Bride.

Today God is telling us not to fear death. Natural death is not the end 
of the story for us who by faith have the promise of eternal life. But 
that does not mean we pursue death. We cannot kill any human including 
our own selves, and if we do we will be judged / questioned for it.

Let us know the purpose of our life. Let us live to be born-again in 
Spirit so as to have eternal life and to do the mission that the Lord 
has assigned to us as part of His Kingdom army so as to be blessed 
richly in Heaven.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord when You created man death was not part of man, but sin caused 
death to come. To avoid sin [corruption] to flourish You took away man's 
access of the Tree of Life and also reduce his natural life span. You 
cursed sinful man to the prison Hell to suffer his sins and perish unto 
his spirit lifespan. But out of mercy You made a way for those who 
believe in You to sleep until the Day of Judgment when all those whose 
names written in the Book of Life pass this world and are collected unto 
You. You Father desire us to be return unto You and be one with You. We 
pray Lord we do not fear death for our life is in You but live it here 
to its fullness...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 5:21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou 
shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not kill [one of the 5 laws towards mankind].

Songs of Solomon 3:9-11

9King Solomon made himself a chariot of the wood of Lebanon.

10He made the pillars thereof of silver, the bottom thereof of gold, the 
covering of it of purple, the midst thereof being paved with love, for 
the daughters of Jerusalem.

11Go forth, O ye daughters of Zion, and behold king Solomon with the 
crown wherewith his mother crowned him in the day of his espousals, and 
in the day of the gladness of his heart.

1 Thessalonians 3:13-17

13But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them 
which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also 
which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

15For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are 
alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them 
which are asleep.

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

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

Jeroboam slept

2 Kings 14:29 And Jeroboam slept with his fathers, even with the kings 
of Israel; and Zachariah his son reigned in his stead.

In the OT there are 2 kings by the name Jeroboam the first and the 
thirteenth kings of Israel. The first one came after the rule of Solomon 
and he did evil in the eyes of God. It is written he 'made Israel to 
sin'. Even the second Jeroboam was no saint he too did evil in the eyes 
of God. With regards to the second Jeroboam there was a particular sin 
which was tagged to him that was of worshipping calves (idols). Calves 
were symbol of fertility so worshipping of calves at that time would be 
equivalent to prosperity Gospel preaching today. What is very 
interesting is when both died it is written they slept with their fathers.

In the Bible (OT and NT) all those after Noah who did not go to Hell 
when they died it is recorded as they 'slept' or they were 'gathered to 
their fathers / people'.The Covenant was started with Noah and completed 
in Jesus Christ (across 7 people) and that is why Jesus came at the 
perfect time to honor the Covenant made (started) with Noah.

Bible says Jesus Christ became a sacrifice from the foundation of 
creation. In the spiritual rem time is not a factor. If God has said it 
without addressing to a period then it goes across time. That is why in 
OT we see although sacrifice was offered after healing yet in NT we 
claim healing by the sacrifice already offered.

Coming back to the two Jeroboams as to how were they saved from Hell?

We see the first Jeroboam experience serve punishment, not only he even 
his family did. God made him pay for his evil here on earth itself like 
yesterday's message he went through the winepress.

The second Jeroboam although he had sinned he abided by the Lord to 
recover the lost land and thus he reined for fifty one years, as long as 
king Asa and second to king Azariah. God also fulfilled His word to his 
forefather that four generations would sit on the throne by making 
Jeroboam (second) son king for six months. But in that six months all 
the riches and land that Jeroboam the second gathered was reduced to 
little. When his son Zachariah died it is not written he slept or was 
gathered.

Today's message is kind of summarizing our previous messages. The 
spiritual journey of those called by the Lord is a wrestling with our 
inner-man a journey from Jacob to Israel, from spiritual daughters to 
spiritual sons. The encounter that the Lord spoke to us a few days back 
makes us into sons and if we do not encounter the old man than like 
yesterday's message we would go through the winepress, as Jeroboam the 
first did. The second Jeroboam also did evil of pursuing prosperity 
(worshipping calves) but then his abiding to what the Lord told him to 
do cause him to not go through the winepress experience.

All of us have at least one sin or the other we are known by to the Lord 
but yet we can avoid the winepress experience by abiding in the Lord as 
much as possible. If we overcome the sin area than not only we but even 
our generations will be blessed in us as Abraham overcame doubt and 
became associated with faith. In the start he laughed when he was told 
by the Lord but after the 25 years of spiritual wilderness journey he 
learned his lesson and passed the greatest test of willing to sacrifice 
the only son he was given as a promise.

[Prayer Starter]

Father God when You created man You had one purpose or mission for man 
and that is to overcome darkness. Lord we pray we be a willing body to 
your purpose in us and not go through the winepress experience. Your 
Word says those whom You have chosen none among them You will loose and 
this is true. So help us Lord to understand the benefit of being a 
willing sacrifice...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

2 Kings 14:23-29

1 Kings 12:32And Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the 
fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Judah, and he 
offered upon the altar. So did he in Bethel, sacrificing unto the calves 
that he had made: and he placed in Bethel the priests of the high places 
which he had made.

1 Kings 14:7-11,16

2 Kings 15:8-11

8In the thirty and eighth year of Azariah king of Judah did Zachariah 
the son of Jeroboam reign over Israel in Samaria six months.

9And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, as his fathers 
had done: he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, 
who made Israel to sin.

10And Shallum the son of Jabesh conspired against him, and smote him 
before the people, and slew him, and reigned in his stead.

11And the rest of the acts of Zachariah, behold, they are written in the 
book of the chronicles of the kings of Israel.

1 Peter 3:19-20

19By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;

20Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God 
waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, 
that is, eight souls were saved by water.

Hebrews 4:3For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As 
I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the 
works were finished from the foundation of the world.

1 Peter 1:20Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the 
world, but was manifest in these last times for you,

Mighty young virgin daughter

Lamentations 1:15 The Lord hath trodden under foot all my mighty [male] in
the midst of me: he hath called an assembly [appointed time] against me to
crush my young [men]: the Lord hath trodden the virgin, the daughter of
Judah, as in a winepress.

You may wonder what kind of title I gave; the words need to be separated by
commas. The words are the four categories which today’s scripture speaks of
as been trodden and crushed as in a winepress. If you read commentaries you
will mostly find them talking of how the Chaldeans / Babylonians destroyed
the Jews of Jerusalem.

This book of Lamentation is like the book of Psalms, it is a Prophetic book
and not addressing to a set time but across time. When I expound it, it
will surprise you what the scripture really means.

Mighty - means strong

Young - comes from the word chosen

Virgin - speaks of someone untouched as in holy

Daughter - is a composite word made of ‘build’ and ‘son’, so means a person
being built into a son

If we take the meanings then the title would read as: Strong, chosen, holy,
child being built into a son.

Yesterday a brother was debating with me on yesterday’s message as to why I
stated ‘my daughter is my son’. It is difficult to break out of the natural
gender mentality for all our lives we are prisoned in it. In the natural we
have two genders male and female and those called by the Lord and part of
the flock have a spiritual gender, they are either son or daughter
(becoming son). Those who reject God (genderless) go to Hell. It is the
flock (sheep and goats) that are judged on Judgment Day.

Our natural gender helps us understand the spiritual gender that is why God
used different processes to create male (Adam - means man) and female
(woman / man with a womb whom Adam called Eve, after being cursed). Our
spiritual gender will decide if we go to Heaven or not. Bible says only
Sons will enter Heaven for those who are led by the Spirit become Sons of
God and one of the essential requirements to enter Heaven is baptism in the
Holy Spirit / being led by the Holy Spirit / being born again in the Spirit.

I have heard many sisters in Christ wrongly confessing themselves as
‘daughters of God’. Calling oneself as sister in Christ is ok but not
daughter of God. This has nothing to do with being male or female. We call
God our Father even though He holds adjectives of being a mother like
Jealous (possessiveness of a mother to her child). In the Bible it was the
son who had rights to inheritance not because they were male but it was so
as to understand the spiritual aspect of it (that is why in the natural it
was not a hard and fast rule, there are cases where daughters also
inherited).

Let us not be entrapped in our flesh but overcome our flesh and while we
overcome our flesh it us overcome the gender of the flesh. Let us look at
our spiritual gender, are we sons or are we daughters. We have no choice
over our natural gender but over our spiritual gender we have a choice. If
we are daughters in spirit then we need to be ready to undergo the crushing
as in a winepress to become sons, as today’s scripture states. So let us
pursue to be Sons of God by the help of the Holy Spirit so that we receive
our eternal inheritance in Him.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are Spirit and the Heavens are your dwelling place, they are
unlike this creations but to make us understand the Heavens You created all
things in the likeness of things not visible. You Lord created man in your
Image and woman out of man. You created marriage as the oneness of woman
unto man, where woman becomes a part of man and not man a part of woman
showing woman who was created from man returns to man, like we return unto
You. Lord we pray we overcome this world, the natural and walk in the
spirit so that we become Sons and return unto You...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world
are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his
eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God
created he him; male and female created he them [male plural].

Genesis 2:21-23

21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept:
and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman,
and brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she
shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

Genesis 2:7

7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into
his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

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

John 3:3-5

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

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

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

Matthew 22:29-30

29 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 the angels of God [who are called Sons of God] in heaven.

Taught by the Lord

Isaiah 54:13 And all thy children [son] shall be taught of the LORD; and 
great shall be the peace of thy children.

In my early days I had heard a Preacher preach about Jesus' place in the 
Bible Luke 4 17-19 and how we too who are called of the Lord have a 
place [written mission] in the Bible. So at that time I prayed to the 
Lord and the Lord gave me two sets of scriptures Jeremiah 3:14-15 and 
Isaiah 65:17-25. Within a short moment I started to see these scriptures 
come true in my life.

When my daughter was born the first thing I did was find her place in 
the Bible for I knew she was not an ordinary child and the Lord had 
great plans for her. Today I am building her with focus of her mission 
in the Lord. I do not put her in a shell but allow her to experience 
life, for her experiences are necessary for her understanding of her 
mission.

Today's scripture tells us, who are called and who encounter the Lord 
that our children [sons] will be taught by the Lord and great will be 
their peace. My daughter is my son; in the natural she is my daughter 
but in the spirit she is my son for the Lord is building her in His 
Image, the Father's Image.

When I got married I was not in the Lord (had not encountered Him). For 
six years we tried to have a child but failed. We even sought medical 
help and that too was of no success. When I started turning to the Lord 
I saw a vision where I was playing with my daughter and this vision was 
in day time and was so real as if it was happening there. The day I 
surrendered to the Lord I received the good news that my wife was 
expecting (was at office and wrestling with the Lord like Jacob did). 
Even before she was born we named her Salome which means peace, for we 
made peace with God.

To have peace means a lot, it is not like nothing with happen. We 
Christians are always at battle with ourselves and with falsehood. 
Having peace is like being at war but with an impenetrable armor.

Let us pray our children are taught of the Lord and they have the peace 
of God. The Lord is telling us if we ask this of Him today He will give 
us. You may not be having a child or may not even be married but yet you 
can ask this pray and in its time you will receive.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord when You blessed Abraham You blessed the seeds within Him and 
called them your people. We who are by faith the seed of Abraham are 
blessed with the blessing of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. We pray Lord we 
too receiving a blessing today not for ourselves but for our children, 
that they become Sons in You, that they may be taught by You and hold 
your peace...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Jeremiah 3:14-15

14Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto 
you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will 
bring you to Zion:

15And I will give you pastors [teachers] according to mine heart, which 
shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

Isaiah 65:17-25

17For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former 
shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

18But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, 
behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.

19And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice 
of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.

20There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that 
hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; 
but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.

21And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant 
vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.

22They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and 
another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and 
mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

23They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they 
are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them.

24And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and 
while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

25The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat 
straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall 
not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.

Get out of the false Church, you who are called

Isaiah 52:11 Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no 
unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the 
vessels of the LORD.

Yesterday an apologist bro was discussing with me how a Hindu who read 
the Bible was questioning him about the violence and degrading terms 
used for people, like in Psalms 79:6 speaks of heathens which according 
to him was a degrading term and also speaks of violence against them.

Those who just read translations in various languages will always have a 
problem with understand the true meaning of scripture. Translators have 
tried their best to be honest in their translation but yet due to many 
factors, like limitation of the language translated into, limited 
theological understanding, etc. caused them to not put forth the right 
translation.

The Hebrew word 'gowy' translated as heathen is a generic word for 
ordinary people. Of the 558 times it occurs in scriptures 374 times it 
is translated as nations, 143 times as heathens, 30 times as gentiles 
and 11 times as people. Now the translators changed the words according 
to the people they felt it referred too, but in realty God did not, He 
was consistent.

When a person comes into the Lord he or she is called a Prince of God / 
Son of God (Israel) and no longer is public or people. That person is 
now royalty of the Kingdom of God even though they live in this world. 
And like we have in this world all royals or diplomats of other 
countries have immunity so also we as Christians have immunity. This 
scripture talks of the psalmist asking God to quicken His judgment on 
the people.

Today's message is about God saying He is soon going to quicken His 
judgment on the people. Spiritually blind people who do not know Him at 
all are not the ones who draw His wrath but those who know His existence 
and yet deny Him or deny His Word are the ones who attract His wrath more.

In today's world look at what is happening and you will see monotheistic 
religions (other than Believers) like Islam, Catholicism etc. or 
countries with their populations are the ones who are facing all kinds 
of natural and unnatural / human problems.

If you are spiritually blind and believe in stones or forces of nature 
as your gods, you may not face His wrath today but if you know God and 
manipulate the truth then leave alone the Judgment that comes on 
Judgment Day when all His flock will stand before the Judgment Seat, 
today you will see His wrath. So God is sending a warning to get out of 
from amongst them, renew yourself, accept Him and accept His Word. Like 
in yesterday's message they need to encounter and be no longer people 
but be royalty and have immunity.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You alone are God Almighty and there is no other God than You. We 
pray people stop deceiving themselves and others, that they accept You 
and your Word. Lord, You and your Word are one and inseparable, thus 
accepting one and rejecting the other is like rejecting both. We pray 
the people harken to this warning and be saved...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Psalms 79:6Pour out thy wrath upon the heathen that have not known thee, 
and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon thy name.

Revelation 18:4And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out 
of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye 
receive not of her plagues.
