The Ram and the Billy

Daniel 8: 4,5 - I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and
southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there
any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his
will, and became great. And as I was considering, behold, an he goat
came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the
ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.

In these scriptures the era of Media-Persia is symbolized in the book
of Daniel as a ram. The two horns, different in size, are obviously
representative of Darius and Cyrus. What is to be noted is that Greece
is symbolized a male goat (billy/buck) and the horn represented
Alexandra the Great.

We need to understand why these specific animals were used to
represent the respective characters. We know Jesus is referred to as a
lamb even though He could have been referred as a ram. He could have
been called the ‘Ram of God’ but God preferred calling Him the 'Lamb
of God'.

It is only when we get into the character of animal and its
physiology, we will understand the reasons. This is what is called
image study.

God uses the same method to teach awesome things throughout the
scriptures which we need to not ignore but dig into; for it is in
these minute things that the greatest of great treasures are hidden
in.

Just to give an example a lamb is fully covered with wool which
represents grace, unlike a ram or a sheep. Jesus also fulfilled many
of the requirements of the books of Moses by been a Lamb of God.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord in your boundless wisdom You have given us the instructions so
that being in the flesh we understand some depth of your limitless
Kingdom. Lord we pray that You open our minds and work our hearts that
we surrender unto You and your Spirit and be renewed...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Genesis 22:8-10
8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a
burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
9 And they came to the place which God had told him of; and Abraham
built an altar there, and laid the wood in order, and bound Isaac his
son, and laid him on the altar upon the wood.
10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son.

John 1:29, 32-37
29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold
the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
32 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from
heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.
33 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the
same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and
remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
34 And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

Revelation 7:9-12
9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could
number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood
before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and
palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which
sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the
elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces,
and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving,
and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever.
Amen.

Speaking in the native dialect

Acts 22:2 - (And when they heard that he spake in the Hebrew tongue to
them, they kept the more silence: and he saith,)

In India we have officially more than 1600 dialects and when we speak
to people, if we converse in their native language we are more
acceptable to them. Doing business in India many a times give a person
slight advantage if one know the native language of the customer.
People love to group together in clans of their own kinds.

This is one of the reasons that to unfold the truth God had to come as
man and be like man so that people (some at least) would accept the
truth and walk the path.

It is very difficult to accept someone not speaking our language, our
thinking, our understanding and knowing this God wrote the Bible the
way it is so that man does not get destroyed by the sudden revelation
of the Truth. God builds us in fruit (s) and also our immunity towards
sin so that when the Truth comes in its fullness it will not destroy
us.

Man has always resisted breaking the shell of his own world and
changing into a better person. Man knows in his heart that walking the
path of truth will be at a cost of the pleasures of the flesh. These
pleasures are so dear to man that he risks his salvation for it.

To be like Jesus we need to be like clay which can be molded into any
shape in the hands of the potter - the Holy Spirit.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord, renew us in our minds and character. In your Word, You asked
Ezekiel to speak unto the bones and they came together and by your
Spirit life came into it. Lord, we speak unto our character and nature
to fall in line to the Truth, we breathe your Spirit into it so that
true life may come into our nature and character. We be renewed in our
thinking and understanding. We may know You and dwell in your
Kingdom...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Ezekiel 37:1-10
1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit
of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full
of bones,
2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were
very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I
answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto
them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause
breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you,
and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and
ye shall know that I am the LORD.
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was
a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to
his bone.
8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them,
and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.
9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man,
and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four
winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.
10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them,
and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

Law of Moses still stands

Malachi 4:4 - Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I
commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and
judgments.

In the Bible there were 5 people with whom the Lord made a Covenant
with regards to the salvation of man. It all started with Noah,
Abraham, Jacob, Moses and lastly Jesus.

Noah's Covenant also known as the Rainbow Covenant was where man was
promised the Holy Spirit symbolized as Rainbow.

Abraham's Covenant also known as the Seed Covenant was where
generations were promised to Abraham through his Seed Jesus Christ.

Jacob's Covenant also known as the Pillar (promise) Covenant was where
the shut doors of Heaven were promised to be opened unto the
generations of Jacob (Israel).

Moses' Covenant also known as the Sea and Cloud Covenant was where the
Lord committed unto the people of God that He (Son and Spirit) would
actually do the job of saving man.

Jesus’ Covenant was the fulfillment of all previous covenants and is
called as the Covenant of Grace. Before Jesus came as man, mercy was
to be earned and there was no guaranty of receiving the sufficient
mercy required (grace) for any job including being saved. That's the
reason we do not see scriptures of faith healing before Jesus but only
mercy healing. It was after Jesus came that grace in abundance was
made available that by faith all in the Lord is possible.

Coming to the Law of Moses, even Jesus kept the Law of Moses and since
He did not break even one commandment He was without blemish. What
people do not understand the Law we read is the shadow of the Law
which the Lord gave and they needed to be done in spirit more than in
the flesh.

To give you an example let me hypothetically take if the Law of Moses
says to kneel, if one take the spiritual understanding of the words
actually mean humbling one's self before God. The root of the Hebrew
word 'knee' means 'blessing' and kneeling means laying our blessings
down on the floor before the Lord, thus acknowledge the Lord as Lord
of our blessings. If we kneel without being humble we fail the purpose
and thus act in the flesh.

Some classify the Law of Moses into Moral Laws, Dietary Laws,
Sanctuary Laws... (maybe more), but once you really understand them in
spirit you will find they do not mean a bit what people think it is
and is valid even today.

Jesus put an end to the flesh of the Law of Moses by revealing the
Truth in spirit, but did not change the Law, not even a word of it.

If we do the Law of Moses in the flesh we will surely die but if we do
it in spirit then we land up doing exactly what Jesus taught and will
thus live. We need to die to the flesh of the Law and live in the
spirit of the Law.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, before You came as man on earth all the Prophets spoke
about You. Even Moses did all things as a shadow of You. Lord by your
Spirit You reveal to us the Truth as spoken through Moses. Lord, open
our minds that we keep the commandments in spirit and truth...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


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

Matthew 8:3-4
3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be
thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
4 And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way,
shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded,
for a testimony unto them.

Matthew 19:5-8
5 And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and
shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God
hath joined together, let not man put asunder.
7 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of
divorcement, and to put her away?
8 He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts
suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not
so.

Mark 7:8-13
8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of
men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things
ye do.
9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God,
that ye may keep your own tradition.
10 For Moses said, Honour thy father and thy mother; and, Whoso
curseth father or mother, let him die the death:
11 But ye say, If a man shall say to his father or mother, It is
Corban, that is to say, a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be
profited by me; he shall be free.
12 And ye suffer him no more to do ought for his father or his mother;
13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition,
which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.

Luke 2:21-24
21 And when eight days were accomplished for the circumcising of the
child, his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel
before he was conceived in the womb.
22 And when the days of her purification according to the law of
Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him
to the Lord;
23 (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth
the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)
24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the
law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.

Luke 24:25-27
25 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all
that the prophets have spoken:
26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto
them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

Luke 24:44-49
44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you,
while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which
were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the
psalms, concerning me.
45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the
scriptures,
46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ
to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in
his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48 And ye are witnesses of these things.
49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry
ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on
high.

John 1:43-45
43 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth
Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him,
of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of
Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

John 3:14-15
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must
the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

John 5:45-47
45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one
that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

John 6:31-33
31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave
them bread from heaven to eat.
32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses
gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true
bread from heaven.
33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and
giveth life unto the world.

John 7:19-24
19 Did not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth the
law? Why go ye about to kill me?
20 The people answered and said, Thou hast a devil: who goeth about
to kill thee?
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, I have done one work, and ye all marvel.
22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of
Moses, but of the fathers;) and ye on the sabbath day circumcise a
man.
23 If a man on the sabbath day receive circumcision, that the law of
Moses should not be broken; are ye angry at me, because I have made a
man every whit whole on the sabbath day?
24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

John 8:4-11
4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but
what sayest thou?
6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him.
But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as
though he heard them not.
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.
8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience,
went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and
Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he
said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man
condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I
condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Acts 10:10-16
10 And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they
made ready, he fell into a trance,
11 And 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:
12 Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and
wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.
14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing
that is common or unclean.
15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath
cleansed, that call not thou common.
16 This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.

To MountZion - Page 41 Empty Re: To MountZion

Post  Admin on Sat 31 Jul 2010, 10:46 am

Where is the body of Jesus?
Luke 24:22,23 - Yea, and certain women also of our company made us
astonished, which were early at the sepulcher [tomb]; And when they
found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a
vision of angels, which said that he was alive.
Jesus said He fulfilled all that was written in Moses and that Moses
wrote about Him.
When one really starts understanding the shadow of Jesus in the Torah,
we will see Jesus fulfilled in Him every sacrifice required to heal
his people.
Just last Sunday at the service as people were worshiping and
witnessing the Word, the Lord opened my mind to the incidents of the
two women who were party to preparing Jesus as a sacrifice. They both
washed the feet of Jesus, one with spikenard (incense/perfume) and the
other with tears.
In the book of Moses these two were very important part of the
sacrifice. You will agree with the incense but about tears you will
say 'where is it written?'
If you read in the books of Moses the Lord instructed that slat be
used with the sacrifice and if one understands the constituents of
tears is water and salt. Thus one will realize why God designed our
eyes to release salt water when we are overflowing with emotions. Thus
the woman had fulfilled the requirement of scriptures in Jesus.
Similar was the reason of the mad man leaving behind a linen cloth,
the soldiers crowning him with a crown of thorns and slapping him,
Jesus being wiped on the back, the need of water coming out from his
side when pierced, Jesus being hung by his hands and feet, not letting
Mary of Magdalene to touch Him, his walking in the desert after
resurrection etc...
Coming to today's scripture, there is one big question which needs to
be understood - what happened to the physical body of Jesus. After
Jesus died and resurrected his body which was in the tomb was missing.
I had explained that resurrection has nothing to do with our physical
bodies. Yet we see Jesus' body was missing.
As every scripture of Moses was fulfilled in Jesus the ones pertaining
to his physical body also needed to be fulfilled. According to the
books of Moses some sacrifices required to be burnt. If one takes a
look at the shroud which was used to wrap the body of Jesus shows a
negative image. This happens due to intense rays which emit from an
object. These rays also come from an object burnt at very, very high
temperature like in nuclear reaction (if one understands molecular
physics one will understand this).
If we deny Jesus' body was burnt then He fails to fulfill all
righteousness and we stand to lose our change to enter Heaven. We need
to understand Jesus by his coming as man and his sacrifice won for us
the 3 things which Adam lost in the Garden of Eden, which were
righteousness, truth and holiness. These 3 fruit(s) of the Holy Spirit
are those we receive from Jesus by believing and abiding in Him, the
rest 9 are those which His Spirit develops in us when we are baptized
in the Holy Spirit. Unless we do not have the 12 fruit(s) of the Holy
Spirit, man will not be able to enter Heaven.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, without You there was no hope for man to come again in the
presence of God. It was You Who earned for us the things we lost. You
made available your Spirit to help us build us so as to complete your
purpose in us and our purpose in You. We pray Lord You open our minds
that we see the Truth and face it...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Luke 24:25-27, 44-45
25 Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all
that the prophets have spoken:
26 Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto
them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.
44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you,
while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which
were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the
psalms, concerning me.
45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the
scriptures,
Luke 7:44
44 And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this
woman? I entered into thine house, thou gavest me no water for my
feet: but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the
hairs of her head.
John 12:3
3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and
anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the
house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
Leviticus 2:13
13 And every oblation of thy meat offering shalt thou season with
salt; neither shalt thou suffer the salt of the covenant of thy God to
be lacking from thy meat offering: with all thine offerings thou shalt
offer salt.
Galatians 5:22
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Ephesians 5:8-9
8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord:
walk as children of light:
9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness [holiness] and
righteousness and truth;)

Well spoke the Holy Spirit through Isaiah

Acts 28:23-27
23 And when they had appointed him a day, they came to him into his
lodging in great number; to whom he expounded the matter, testifying
the kingdom of God, and persuading them concerning Jesus, both from
the law of Moses and from the prophets, from morning till evening.
24 And some believed the things which were spoken, and some disbelieved.
25 And when they agreed not among themselves, they departed after
that Paul had spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Spirit through
Isaiah the prophet unto your fathers,
26 saying, Go thou unto this people, and say, By hearing ye shall
hear, and shall in no wise understand; And seeing ye shall see, and
shall in no wise perceive:
27 For this people's heart is waxed gross, And their ears are dull of
hearing, And their eyes they have closed; Lest, haply they should
perceive with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand
with their heart, And should turn again, And I should heal them.

When the Lord was teaching Paul, the Lord showed Paul the Heavens and
made him understand creation in whole and its purpose. This elementary
understanding was necessary so that Paul would not be misled in any
way by any understandings.

Even when the Lord started teaching me one of the first things He did
was show me the Heavens. 'Show me the Heavens' does not mean I was
taken into Heaven, but means I was given a symbolic understanding of
the Heavens by visions. People who claim Heaven visitations really do
not know the Kingdom of God and you will see many contradictions to
the Word in the testimony of these people, who claim to have seen
Heaven or Hell. When Paul claimed this in one of his letters, he even
specified how before he started.

Knowing the Heavens, no man can enter except Jesus Christ, since in
Him was 'all'. This 'all' we will get from Jesus Christ only after the
Judgment Day when He comes again as man and it is by this 'all' we
will be able to enter Heaven.

In my short walk in the Lord I have see many, many people working in
the Lord as spiritual dwarfs. They are people grown in age, meaning
having many years of experience working in the Lord, but their
spiritual stature is still very small. They have years of experience
and may even have a great ministry but yet in spirit they have stopped
growing in understanding after a time.

Paul did not have complete understanding. In the start what he wrote,
he added unto it as his knowledge and understanding grew. For example
I pointed about the Fruit(s) of the Holy Spirit, similarly are other
cases like callings and salvation.

When I meet people and discuss about the Kingdom of God adding to what
I speak which is many a times unheard of revelations; they have even
greater hurdles when they personally see me. Firstly in looks I nearly
look half my age and secondly I get excited a lot when I speak about
the Kingdom of God unlike the patience I keep when I write. For many
this causes a great difficulty to grasp all what I am speaking. Their
eyes tell them something which distracts them from what I speak. This
mainly starts from the point they hear something which they do not
like hearing or take offence at something I say. It is at that very
point they stop listening or digging into what I say and start looking
at me, trying to judge me and not my understanding. Even if all
scriptures are fulfilled in what I say, yet they will not want to
listen to it.

Paul too faced a similar situation and spoke the reason why this does happen.

When the Lord spoke through Isaiah, He said He hardened the hearts of
people so that they do not understand and be healed. When the Lord
used the word 'hardened', it did not mean turning a normal heart into
a stone. It meant a heart (mind/inner man) which was already hard to
some extent, He hardened it further. The reason why this happens is
deep inside them these people do not want to completely detached from
this world. They love worldly praises, material, power, pleasures etc.
They talk about the Kingdom of God, testifying about it, but yet they
do not want to completely dwell in it.

Sin is the manifestation of the sickness of the spirit and being
healed in spirit will cause complete eradication of sin. A weak soul
will never want to be completely free of sin just like a pig does not
want to be completely away from a muddy puddle.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, Your Kingdom requires man to completely detach in spirit
from this world, but being in the flesh You know it is impossible for
man. Therefore You send your Begotten Son to be the path so that by
your Spirit You save us. Lord we pray that in your mercy You
strengthen our inner man, that we may not harden ourselves and fall...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

There is no audience here

Obadiah 1:11-13
11 On the day that you stood aloof, on the day that strangers carried
off his wealth, and foreigners entered his gates and cast lots for
Jerusalem, you were like one of them.
12 But you should not have gloated over the day of your brother in
the day of his misfortune; you should not have rejoiced over the
people of Judah in the day of their ruin; you should not have boasted
in the day of distress.
13 You should not have entered the gate of my people in the day of
his calamity; you should not have gloated over his disaster in the day
of his calamity; you should not have looted his goods in the day of
his calamity.


In the Bible the Lord prophesied certain distress moments in the lives
of certain people. At these moments of distress the Lord tells us
there is no audience. We are in it either way, party to the looters or
the savers, if not among the victims.

Understand in the Bible you will read that many a times the Lord has
got angry with his people and has delivered them unto their enemies
because they refuse to abide by his Instructions. Even in his anger
his love remained with his people and in his mercy later after He
delivers them, He has punished the enemies who persecuted his people.

In today's message these people who are the victims are getting justly
what's coming to them, yet the Lord tells us we should not mock at
them nor stand apart and be audience. The audiences are directly or
indirectly partly with the perpetrators. And like I explained before
all the perpetrators of wrong towards God's people will experience his
anger.

In the Word of God every important event in the spirit world is
already given well in advance, so the Lord expects us to alert his
people before hand and save them from the coming wraths.

In the Bible and also in visions which the Lord gives unto his people,
He symbolizes his wrath as a whirlwind / tornado. People who do
climate research / atmospheric study will be able to easy tell you by
looking at the weather if it is building up to turn into a tornado. By
instruments they will also be able to tell you in which direction it
is heading to and at what speed.

Think if your children (even if they fought with you and separated
from you) are staying in the path of this tornado and the scientist
does not call them in advance to direct them to escape it or to
prepare them to face the coming tornado, and just sits back to watch
the disaster or laughs at them. Will you not get angry with that
scientist and take him to task? Your anger against your children will
not overcome your love for them, as their parent.

Our God does get angry but his anger does not out live his love. It is
due to his love and mercy that He instructs us before hand of the
disasters coming on his people. We, who are his messengers should also
project God's love and either save his people (as many as possible)
from the disaster or prepare them to face it and survive.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord, we are made in your image, so help us think, act and react in
the way You do. You do get angry when we disobey You. But in your love
for us, You have send your messengers to save your people. Lord we
prayer for your messengers that they take courage and responsibility
of their duty...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Obadiah 1:11-14
11 On the day that you stood aloof, on the day that strangers carried
off his wealth, and foreigners entered his gates and cast lots for
Jerusalem, you were like one of them.
12 But you should not have gloated over the day of your brother in
the day of his misfortune; you should not have rejoiced over the
people of Judah in the day of their ruin; you should not have boasted
in the day of distress.
13 You should not have entered the gate of my people in the day of
his calamity; you should not have gloated over his disaster in the day
of his calamity; you should not have looted his goods in the day of
his calamity.
14 You should not have stood at the parting of the ways to cut off
his fugitives; you should not have delivered up his survivors in the
day of distress.
15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast
done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine
own head.

2 Kings 24:1-4
1 In his days Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim
became his servant three years: then he turned and rebelled against
him.
2 And the LORD sent against him bands of the Chaldees, and bands of
the Syrians, and bands of the Moabites, and bands of the children of
Ammon, and sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the
word of the LORD, which he spake by his servants the prophets.
3 Surely at the commandment of the LORD came this upon Judah, to
remove them out of his sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to
all that he did;
4 And also for the innocent blood that he shed: for he filled
Jerusalem with innocent blood; which the LORD would not pardon.

Jeremiah 27:4-9
4 And command them to say unto their masters, Thus saith the LORD of
hosts, the God of Israel; Thus shall ye say unto your masters;
5 I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the
ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given
it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.
6 And now have I given all these lands into the hand of
Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant; and the beasts of the
field have I given him also to serve him.
7 And all nations shall serve him, and his son, and his son's son,
until the very time of his land come: and then many nations and great
kings shall serve themselves of him.
8 And it shall come to pass, that the nation and kingdom which will
not serve the same Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, and that will
not put their neck under the yoke of the king of Babylon, that nation
will I punish, saith the LORD, with the sword, and with the famine,
and with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand.
9 Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners,
nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers,
which speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon:

Jeremiah 28:12-17
12 Then the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah the prophet, after
that Hananiah the prophet had broken the yoke from off the neck of the
prophet Jeremiah, saying,
13 Go and tell Hananiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Thou hast
broken the yokes of wood; but thou shalt make for them yokes of iron.
14 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; I have put a
yoke of iron upon the neck of all these nations, that they may serve
Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; and they shall serve him: and I have
given him the beasts of the field also.
15 Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet, Hear
now, Hananiah; The LORD hath not sent thee; but thou makest this
people to trust in a lie.
16 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will cast thee from off
the face of the earth: this year thou shalt die, because thou hast
taught rebellion against the LORD.
17 So Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month.

Do not miss the bus, Christ is King
Luke 24: 21 - But we trusted that it had been he which should have
redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since
these things were done.
There were some Israelites during that time who did believe that Jesus
was their Savior but these Israelites had a different expectation of
Jesus. They expected Jesus to overtake the king and become a King
giving them a kingdom like the times of David. We today, by the Holy
Spirit are revealed as to how wrong they were in their thinking.
Even today we have the save Israelites among us who believe that Jesus
Christ will come again to rule the world for a 1000years like a human
king.
Man has come to somewhat know God but yet like people during the times
of Samuel they still want a human King, for they are so much in this
world that they do not want to get out of it.
Jesus clearly said when He preached that His Kingdom is not of this
world but yet people want His kingdom to be of this world. Jesus as
God the Son was, is and will be the same, we cannot change Him; so it
is best we come to the Truth by changing our mindset.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You said in your Word You will come again and rule over
your people leading them to their destination which is your permanent
Kingdom. Your Kingdom can not be of this world for this world cannot
survive which they will see You in your glory. Lord, we pray your
people open their eyes and see the King is among them...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 10:6-7
6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Matthew 12:28
28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of
God is come unto you.
Matthew 16:28
28 Verily I say unto you, There be some [also translated as one]
standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son
of man coming in his kingdom.
Luke 9:27
27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some [one] standing here,
which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.
Luke 1:31-33
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a
son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and
the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his
kingdom there shall be no end.
Luke 17:20-21
20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God
should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not
with observation:
21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the
kingdom of God is within you.

Ministers, have breast like roes!
Songs of Solomon 4:5 - Thy two breasts are like two young roes that
are twins, which feed among the lilies.
Yesterday I was meditating on the right way of ministering and today
the Lord gave this awesome scripture. You may wonder what has this
scripture to do with ministering.
In one of my previous mails I told you that the book Songs of Solomon
is a true example of image study. For a lay person the scriptures may
look something crazy, but a person give the ability to understand
image study will find it like a fountain of spiritual knowledge and
understanding.
The scripture talks of two breasts being like roes. Now we know this
is a weird comparison but when we go into what they symbolize this
become a very beautiful instruction for those who work in the Lord.
I told you about Adam (man) being made physically in the nature of
God, but when God created Eve (woman) He made her from the bone
(nature / character) of Adam (man). In spirit both being identical but
in physical man and woman are different. Therefore studying the
anatomy and physiology of a woman in spiritual symbolization, will
give us tremendous understanding of how of mankind made by God.
The breast of a woman has a purpose which is to feed its little ones.
In spirit they symbolize the ministering or preaching that one does to
those given unto him or her. The construction of the breast, its
design and properties will give man the right instructions of how to
minister. The construction is soft around but at the time of feeding
the center (nipple) from where milk flows stands up and becomes hard.
It also does not become so hard as to hurt the feeding baby.
The scripture specifies two breasts. Now, when we spiritually feed
others we need to also realize that we need to feed one more person
and that is ourselves. Most people working in the Lord’s vineyard are
just feeding others but are not feeding themselves. They measure their
spiritual growth by the number of people they minister or by their
popularity. A tree is not considered good if it has only leaves and no
fruits. Nor is it good to see a tree with only fruits and no leaves.
God has designed trees to have both abundant leaves and abundant
fruit.
Coming to the part why breast are being symbolized as roes / deer. We
need to understand the animal to understand what the Lord is trying to
tell us by this scripture. The animal is a lean animal not having
extra fat; it has just sufficient so as to not hamper its speed at the
time it is under attack. The legs of the animal looks thin and weak
but when it performs it amazes every eye that sees it.
The Hebrew word used for lilies comes from the root word joy.
The Lord is asking to be like roes and to feed our spiritual little
one like He a woman’s breast that feeds its baby. Only when we do
this, will we be feeding on the joy of the Lord.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are a wonderful God. You made all things in your abundant
wisdom, so that by the understanding of things we would have abundant
life. Lord help your people who You have called to work in your
vineyard to abide by the instructions so that You are glorified among
your people and we in You...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scripture]
Habakkuk 3:19
19 The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds'
feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief
singer on my stringed instruments.
Micah 7:1-6
1 Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits,
as the grapegleanings of the vintage: there is no cluster to eat: my
soul desired the firstripe fruit.
2 The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none
upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man
his brother with a net.
3 That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh,
and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his
mischievous desire: so they wrap it up.
4 The best of them is as a brier: the most upright is sharper than a
thorn hedge: the day of thy watchmen and thy visitation cometh; now
shall be their perplexity.
5 Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep
the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.
6 For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against
her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s
enemies are the men of his own house.

Paul's letter to the Ephesians
Among theologians, they debate if Paul is the true writer of this
letter, this all because of some changes in the style from Paul's
previous letters.
By looking at the cover of the book one will never understand the book
or what the writer wants to convey. You might question me saying 'who
this guy thiks he is, questioning people who spend years and years to
learn the scriptures and history?'
Understand there is an easy way to study scriptures which is spending
time with the Holy Spirit or the other way which will take years and
years, with lots of testimonies.
Firstly we need to understand the mission of Paul which the Lord had
given him and this is revealed in Acts 9:15,16 'for he is a chosen
vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and
the children of Israel: for I will shew him how great things he must
suffer for my name's sake.'
Paul had two missions one to be a witness and two to be a testimony.
As a witness he was given a specific lot of people to witness to and
they were primarily:
1) The gentiles - worldly people
2) The kings - rulers/leaders of the world
3) The children of Israel
In the 3rd category of people the Lord says 'children of Israel' not
Israel; that also did not means Paul was to start a nursery school or
a Sunday school. When the Lord said 'children of Israel', the Lord
meant people who were just maturing in spirit.
Paul was called as a primary school teacher in the school of spiritual
teaching. Therefore his letters were written is such simplicity, which
any lay person will understand. Even though Paul had knowledge of some
of the greatest revelations, he put them hidden in his text in such a
way that when a person not grown in the Lord reads it he will not
stumble at it. Paul put a few granules in his baby food for those who
go ahead and grow in the Lord.
If you summarize all the letters of Paul together, you will see a
graph of Paul's spiritual state. He starts at a good point in Romans
and comes crashing down in 1 Corinthians and starts to climb up after
2 Corinthians. The letters to the Romans is full of knowledge and the
letters to the Hebrew is awesome understanding. Most people love
Paul's letter to the Hebrews not understanding what Paul went through
to come to this state. The thorn in the flesh took Paul to a state of
near death and bough him to state of total confidence when he overcame
it. That thorn was Paul's Mount Tabor. It is because of this there is
a slight change in Paul's style of writing.
Another matter that confirms that the letter to Ephesians is Paul's is
the revelation of the Fruit(s) of the Holy Spirit.
In Galatians Paul wrote of the 9 Fruit(s) of the Holy Spirit but
latter reveals the balance 3 fruits in his letter to the Ephesians.
Paul just could not list all the 12 Fruit(s) of the Holy Spirit
together for it would not bring the true understanding to a just
growing person. Unless one really understands what salvation is all
about and what resurrection means, one will never be able to know the
3 hidden Fruit(s) and value. There is no way any person would know of
the 3 hidden Fruit(s) unless his foundation is build, the letter also
shows the mission purpose of Paul of putting revelations in such a
soften way; thus the letter 100 percent confirms as Paul’s work.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You have called us of a mission, reveal your mission in our
lives to us and fulfill your purpose in our lives. Lord, by your
Spirit guide and comfort us in our every step. You are the provider of
the harvest and no one other than we ourselves can be the cause of
losing on the harvest. Lord let not our thorns bring us to loss...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

Taking the Name of the Lord

Zephaniah 3:9 - For then will I turn to the people a pure language,
that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with
one consent.

In my previous mails I have mentioned one of the areas of spiritual
growth is from hope to trust, trust to faith and faith to authority.

Hope is an expectation, trust comes from experience, faith comes from
knowledge and authority from understanding. It is only when we know
the plan of God for us and the right we have when we become Sons of
God, then alone we will be able to have fullness of faith which is
authority in the name of the Lord.

Now comes the question what is the Name of the Lord. People would all
say, Yahweh, Elohim, El-Shadai etc. In simple sense these are names
(plural) by the scriptures say Name (singular). Now if among these are
the Name of the Lord, then which one and who will decide.

When the Lord spoke to his people, He referred to Himself with these
various names, but these are not His Name, they are just descriptive
words or references to Him. It is like when we speak to one another
about a person and we do not know that person completely including his
name we will use descriptive words which are unique to him to identify
him among others.

For among the names of the Lord is the name 'Jealous' which people
quietly filter away out of convince. They mistake it with the English
meaning without knowing the Hebrew word means 'the possessiveness of a
mother over her children'.

Now coming to the true Name of the Lord is it in the Bible?

The answer to that is a No and a Yes.

Firstly understand that the Name of the Lord is as holy as the Lord
is. Like man with sin cannot come before true glory God similarly
sinful man cannot take the Name of the Lord, if he does he will die.

But God knowing that without His Name we will perish has been giving
us the shadow of His Name in the Old Testament as Yahweh, El-shadai,
Elohim, Lord God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob etc. But in the New
Testament the only person Who knew Him gave us His Name as Father.
Jesus never said speak to Yahweh, or pray to Elohim, but Jesus always
referred to God and God the Father. It is only when corrupt man is
made incorruptible will he know the Name of the Lord. For it is by
this Name that Angels have the tremendous power.

Jesus came to give us authority, which is power and therefore gave us
His Name. Jesus Himself used His Name to protect his disciples, for
hidden in his Name is the Name of the Father. That does not mean the
meaning of the word 'Jesus' which is 'God our Salvation'.

The Name of the Lord cannot be written nor spoken with human lips but
only one way and that is from a purified heart. One may keep on saying
the name 'Jesus' but it is only when one is in relation with Jesus,
eaten of His desires and become one with Him will one have power when
he speaks the Name of the Lord by taking the Name Jesus, for the Name
of Jesus is above all names.

In today's scripture the Lord promises us that He will purify our
inner man so that we will be able to take His Name and have power
being one in His Son.



[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You came from the Father and You alone know the Father.
Lord Jesus, it is only because of You that we can come before the
Father and become His Sons. Lord, help each one of us to be one in You
by having your desires be ours by eating your flesh...

This prayer we make in your Mighty Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Exodus 3:15
15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the
children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham,
the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is
my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

Exodus 34:14
14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, whose name is
Jealous, is a jealous God:

John 17:12
12 While I was with them, I kept them in thy name which thou hast
given me: and I guarded them, and not one of them perished, but the
son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

John 20:31
31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the
Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through
his name.

Acts 3:6-8
6 Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have
give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
7 And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and
immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.
8 And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the
temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

Acts 4:29-30
29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy
servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,
30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders
may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

Acts 19:13-16
13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to
call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus,
saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth.
14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the
priests, which did so.
15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I
know; but who are ye?
16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and
overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of
that house naked and wounded.

Philippians 2:9-11
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name
which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in
heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to
the glory of God the Father.

Isaiah 45:23
23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in
righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall
bow, every tongue shall swear.

John 6:53-57
53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except
ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no
life in you.
54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life;
and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me,
and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he
that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

Walking through Mount Tabor to receive new flesh, skin and bones
Lamentations 3:3,4 - Surely against me is he turned; he turneth his
hand against me all the day. My flesh and my skin hath he made old; he
hath broken my bones.
The Prophet Jeremiah is one of the greater Prophets known to mankind.
He did amazingly, but to be what he was; he was dealt with very
harshly by the Lord.
Understand Jeremiah lived during a bad phase of history and to face
that challenge the Lord put him through an obstacle course. And the
obstacles were not ordinary but personal.
In the mail I sent day before yesterday I pointed out before the Lord
starts building you in authority the Lord takes a person to the height
of breaking point (Mount Tabor). Today's message talks about
Jeremiah's Mount Tabor. This Mount Tabor is what we all will have to
pass through if we want to mature into Sons of God - Sons of
authority.
If you read the areas of Jeremiah which the Lord worked on were flesh,
skin and bones.
When Paul said the Word of God is a double edge sword which spits the
bone (joints) and the marrow, he did not mean literal but symbolic.
Life is in the blood and blood in generated from the marrow. When we
die, our body dies but we continue to live because our spirit lives.
When our spirit dies, this death is the second and permanent death.
Thus life is not literately in the blood or the marrow but in the
spirit. The marrow symbolizes the spirit and the bones our nature or
character. It is our nature or character which gives shape to the real
us like our bones give shape to our body. This is the reason Jesus’
bones were not allowed to be broken because He was perfect in
character and nature.
Now coming to flesh, when Jesus said eat my flesh He did not
literately mean human flesh but what the flesh symbolizes; the flesh
symbolizes desires. Unless one does not eat the desires of Jesus, one
will have nothing to do with Him. Eating the bread and wine (flesh and
blood) is symbolic to what they represent and we do them as a
remembrance of what they mean. But if we do not do what they symbolize
then it will become just a tradition or ritual which will not change
us.
About skin, if one looks at the testimony of Job when he was attacked
by Satan in the body there was only one part of his body which Satan
could inflect damage. Satan could touch Job's inner organs, nor his
bones, nor any other part of Job other than Job’s skin. All the
problems Job suffered was to do with his skin and it was because it
was the area of Job's spiritual problem. Job was called righteous but
we learn that there was found no one righteous therefore God came as
man to be a righteous sacrifice for eternity.
We are called children of righteousness, truth and holiness even
though we do not complete have them. To receive them is not possible
therefore they are the free gifts (fruits) which we get through Lord
Jesus Christ. We are called children of them because we pursue them.
We are called righteous because we walk the path of righteousness but
have not reached the destination.
Job was called righteous by the Lord but Job had a problem of self
righteousness. And if you read through the whole testimony of Job, God
dealt with this problem of Job at the end.
Thus Jeremiah was dealt in the 3 areas which were his desires, his
righteousness and his character. His desires and righteousness was
made old and he was given a new flesh and new skin, which meant he now
walked in the desires on the Lord and the righteousness of the Lord.
God also dealt with his bones but it does say God gave him new bones.
The character of Jeremiah was broken but since the perfect bones was
not yet revealed, thus the job was left incomplete.
But in our case we will not only be given a new flesh, new skin but
also new bones.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You are the perfect mold make for us to look at and be
molded unto. Lord we prayer as You through your Spirit take us through
our Mount Tabor let your grace be upon us that your gentleness be
abundant over us. Work in us but let your love cushion us as You go
about changing our flesh, skin and bones...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
John 6:50-57
50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may
eat thereof, and not die.
51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat
of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give
is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this
man give us his flesh to eat?
53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except
ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no
life in you.
54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life;
and I will raise him up at the last day.
55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me,
and I in him.
57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he
that eateth me, even he shall live by me.
Job 2:3-8
3 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job,
that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright
man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth
fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy
him without cause.
4 And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that
a man hath will he give for his life.
5 But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and
he will curse thee to thy face.
6 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.
7 So went Satan forth from the presence of the LORD, and smote Job
with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.
8 And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal; and he sat
down among the ashes.
John 19:31-36
31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the
bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that
sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be
broken, and that they might be taken away.
32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of
the other which was crucified with him.
33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already,
they brake not his legs:
34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and
forthwith came there out blood and water.
35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he
knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.
36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be
fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
Hebrew 4:12
12 For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any
two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit,
of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and
intents of the heart.

Zion your Children will be taught of the Lord

Isaiah 54:13 - And all thy children shall be taught of (by) the LORD;
and great shall be the peace of thy children.

Before I start there is something I want you to understand what I am
sharing is a testimony and the glory goes all to the Lord. It is so as
to encourage you and tell you how good the Lord is.

Yesterday I was invited by a brother to talk to the leaders of a
Christ and it was an open debate. This Church has polluted itself with
misunderstanding of scriptures and they were ready to test their
understandings before us. So I took a sister along who also has a
calling of a teacher in her life and there 1 more brother invited by
the brother who invited me, we were a team of 4 and they also were 4.

They had come all prepared to convince us and hoped to win us by their
understanding so they did the starting. On the other have the two of
us had no idea what the situation was at the other side, we heard of
this Church for the first time.

As they started I understood in his first few lines where he was
tending towards. They had an understanding that the prophets will
keeping coming back like Elias came as John the Baptist. They also had
an understanding that before the rapture their Church would be the
first to be taken up into Heaven. You may find them amusing but they
had scriptures to quote and to prove this understandings; the only
problem was the scriptures were either technically misunderstood or
put out of context.

These people were just victims of other people's mischief. But they
will be not blameless for someone can deceive you by giving you a
misunderstanding and make you a victim, but remaining in it is your
decision. No one can force you to remain in a misunderstanding. In
fact the person who introduced them to this Church has himself come to
know the Truth and left but they continued.

We did not want to just prove them wrong but to also how them the
Truth. As we started our discussion I started with first laying the
foundation that the whole Word of God is just One Understanding and
there is no difference in understanding between the Old and New
Testament (just people doing it) and took examples to prove them. I
showed them how there were at least 2 to 3 or more scriptures to every
understanding. How if any understanding contradicts even one scripture
it should be considered a wrong understanding.

I then started making them understand how creation is and the various
levels on creation so as to understand human life. I also told up what
man is and the purpose why God created man.

They were from this Church which called them to give up everything in
life (even sell their houses and do full time ministry - preaching).
When they heard what I was saying, they were literally dumb struck and
had nothing much to say. They did try 2 or 3 times to test my
understanding with scriptures but could not disapprove it. I was not
proving only in scriptures but also the same in God's creation.

What zapped them more was my understanding was not out of any text
book or something heard of before from anyone else but not
contradicting the Word, for it was directly from the Lord.

From the start of my walk in the Lord, the Lord has been my Teacher
and His ways of teaching are very different and just perfect to me. I
do refer books (Bible study books) for knowledge but most of my
understanding is mostly given by the Lord directly (in the start they
were by visions and physical manifestation). I may read A, B and C but
the Lord will take me to E, F and G.

Out of the four of them, three were shaken from their understanding
and truly listening but one of them who was hard in heart (and their
leader) was literally dozing many at times through the session (we
started at about 12 noon and went up to 5pm nonstop with none of us
realizing the time).

Today's scripture speaks about what the Lord has been doing unto me.
It says the Lord will be teacher unto the children of Zion. 'Children'
does not refer to physical age but to spiritual age. We grow from
children of Israel to sons of Zion through our spiritual journey.

Paul had a special calling in his life to teach the children of Israel
and therefore his teachings as so beautiful and simple for people to
understand.

We as workers in the vineyard of the Lord having different callings
teach in varying styles, varying aspects at varying levels, but
ultimately we all need to take the person to be taught by the Lord and
not be their guide forever, so that the person can go ahead of us.

We should firstly realize that none of us has the complete
understanding of the Truth, what we know is only parts and when we
share with others we put parts together and come to greater
understanding of the Truth, but yet it will be part of the Truth. So
we need to always go back to the source of the Truth - that is the
Lord.

Let us not remain in our misunderstandings of what we know and how
much we know is all, but let us allow the Lord to teach us and guide
us by opening our minds to shine more light on the Truth we know and
also teach us more of the Truth at all times.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, You gave us the Word which is Truth and to understand the
Truth, You gave us your Spirit. Holy Spirit, You are our guide and
teacher, teach us and open our minds to more and more of the Truth.
Root the Truth is us by shining your glory into our lives through your
testimony growing in us...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Jeremiah 3:14-15
14 "Return, O backsliding children," says the LORD; "for I am married
to you. I will take you, one from a city and two from a family, and I
will bring you to Zion.
15 "And I will give you shepherds according to My heart, who will
feed you with knowledge and understanding.

Acts 9:15-16
15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel
unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the
children of Israel:
16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.

1 Corinthians 4:17
17 For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved
son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of
my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.

1 Corinthians 8:22-23
22 And we have sent with them our brother, whom we have oftentimes
proved diligent in many things, but now much more diligent, upon the
great confidence which I have in you.
23 Whether any do enquire of Titus, he is my partner and fellowhelper
concerning you: or our brethren be enquired of, they are the
messengers of the churches, and the glory of Christ.

The Bee and the Worldly Army

Judges 4:14-16
14 And Deborah said unto Barak, Up; for this is the day in which the
LORD hath delivered Sisera into thine hand: is not the LORD gone out
before thee? So Barak went down from mount Tabor, and ten thousand men
after him.
15 And the LORD discomfited Sisera, and all his chariots, and all his
host, with the edge of the sword before Barak; so that Sisera lighted
down off his chariot, and fled away on his feet.
16 But Barak pursued after the chariots, and after the host, unto
Harosheth of the Gentiles: and all the host of Sisera fell upon the
edge of the sword; and there was not a man left.

Today I like to take you into another dimension of the Old Testament,
but before we do that I will touch on the background of today's
message.

Deborah was a Woman of God who Judged Israel during the times between
Joshua and Saul, the time when the Lord was King over Israel and it
had no man king. The Israelites had turn away from the Lord so they
were oppressed by the Canaanites. Sisera was a commander of the
Canaanite army who had a fleet of 900 iron chariots which gave him
tremendous power over others. The Lord later had pity on the
Israelites and gave a Word through Deborah asking her to summon Barak
as to lead an army of 10,000 Israelites to defeat Sisera. Barak abides
on condition that Deborah joins him to the war which she does. The
Lord sends word through Sisera's associates and Sisera gathers his
battalion and moves to Mount Tabor to fight Barak. Barak comes down
Mount Tabor and the whole army of Sisera is utterly defeated not
leaving even one soldier leaving Sisera alone who manages escape but
is killed in the hands of a woman Jael, who drives a nail in his head.

What I found interesting is the names and their strategic placement in
this story. Let me take today's scripture and instead of the Hebrew
names let me put the meaning or what they symbolize into place. This
will give you and preview into image study.

Deborah - bee (flower symbolizes prophesy and honey understanding thus
bee a person who pursues the Word).
Barak - lightning (Barak was the son of Abinoam which means father of
delight) - putting the whole together Barak symbolizes authority. Hope
grows into trust and trust into faith and faith into authority. Jesus
came to give us authority and when this authority is understood will
son of man become Son of God.
Canaan - low land (earth is a low level of various levels of Heaven).
Sisera - battle array (power) since Sisera was a ruler of Canaan he
represented power of this world (Satan).
Gentile - nation or people (worldly)
Mount Tabor - Mount of mould - the word mould come from the root which
means breaking - thus Mount Tabor means a place of breaking.
Harosheth - woodland - wood symbolizes flesh or carnal mind thus
woodland means land full of lust.

Judges 4:14-16 (meanings put in place of names)
14 And the Word pursuer said with authority, Up; for this is the day
in which the LORD hath delivered the power of the world into thine
hand: is not the LORD gone out before thee? So with authority went
down from place of breaking, and ten thousand men after him.
15 And the LORD discomfited the power of the world, and all his
chariots, and all his host, with the edge of the sword before
authority of His sons; so that the power of this world lighted down
off his chariot, and fled away on his feet.
16 But authority pursued after the chariots, and after the host, unto
fleshy desires of the worldly people: and all the host of the power of
this world fell upon the edge of the sword; and there was not a man
left.

Also note that the power of this world (Satan) was left to be
destroyed by a woman (who physically was made spiritually symbolizing
man). The woman killed him by putting a nail through his head. Satan
by the powers of this world put nails in the limbs of the Son of man
and man finishes Satan by put one in his head.

In short this scripture literally covers the story of creation in a
few words. It talks about man who pursued the Word with authority to
confront the powers of this world (Satan) and all his army. Before the
battle he was taken to a breaking point first, after being broken he
went in authority to pursue the powers of this world. The Lord helped
him and he destroyed the army of Satan not leaving even one alive.
Ultimately the Lord delivered Satan who was a great power in the
Heaven to be destroyed by man.

Was this scripture not awesome! This is the reason I always say there
is amazing dimensions in which scriptures can be studied.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are a awesome God. Your wisdom is beyond imagination and in
your wisdom You gave us the Word for our salvation. Lord Jesus You are
our head and You lead us as Son of Man to make us into Sons of God. It
is You as Son of Man who will put the nail into the head of Satan
completely destroying him. Lord help us understand the depths of your
instruction so that we are led astray but be build in authority so
that we can do the task You have set before us to finish the powers of
Satan in this world...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Judges 4:1-9
1 And the children of Israel again did evil in the sight of the LORD,
when Ehud was dead.
2 And the LORD sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan, that
reigned in Hazor; the captain of whose host was Sisera, which dwelt in
Harosheth of the Gentiles.
3 And the children of Israel cried unto the LORD: for he had nine
hundred chariots of iron; and twenty years he mightily oppressed the
children of Israel.
4 And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel
at that time.
5 And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and
Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for
judgment.
6 And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of
Kedeshnaphtali, and said unto him, Hath not the LORD God of Israel
commanded, saying, Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee
ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of
Zebulun?
7 And I will draw unto thee to the river Kishon Sisera, the captain
of Jabin's army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will
deliver him into thine hand.
8 And Barak said unto her, If thou wilt go with me, then I will go:
but if thou wilt not go with me, then I will not go.
9 And she said, I will surely go with thee: notwithstanding the
journey that thou takest shall not be for thine honour; for the LORD
shall sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. And Deborah arose, and
went with Barak to Kedesh.

Judges 4:17-21
17 Howbeit Sisera fled away on his feet to the tent of Jael the wife
of Heber the Kenite: for there was peace between Jabin the king of
Hazor and the house of Heber the Kenite.
18 And Jael went out to meet Sisera, and said unto him, Turn in, my
lord, turn in to me; fear not. And when he had turned in unto her into
the tent, she covered him with a mantle.
19 And he said unto her, Give me, I pray thee, a little water to
drink; for I am thirsty. And she opened a bottle of milk, and gave him
drink, and covered him.
20 Again he said unto her, Stand in the door of the tent, and it
shall be, when any man doth come and enquire of thee, and say, Is
there any man here? that thou shalt say, No.
21 Then Jael Heber's wife took a nail of the tent, and took an hammer
in her hand, and went softly unto him, and smote the nail into his
temples, and fastened it into the ground: for he was fast asleep and
weary. So he died.

Genesis 3:14-15
14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done
this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the
field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the
days of thy life:
15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy
seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his
heel.

Manifestation of spirits
Luke 9: 39 - And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out;
and it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly
departeth from him.
Last time I had sent a mail on spirits, a sister who is from a Hindu
Gujarati background, who had just come of know Jesus, experienced Him,
now reading the Bible and receives my mails, shared with something
that surprised me too.
Although she is from educated (in-laws) family and living in Mumbai
they still practice witchcraft or calling spirits. She was so
traumatized with the manifestation of the spirit that fear got rooted
into her.
Why do spirits manifest so dramatically?
I am no great authority on this matter and nor specially called as a
Healer (deliverance ministry), but do have some understanding about
spirits and also have first hand experiences in deliverance cases by I
will share with you.
In my family, before we came into the Lord had a young maid who worked
with us. This girl was like any average Indian maids from remote south
India working in a city like Mumbai. She had little problems in her
behavior but overall she was okay. The first time we went to an
evangelizing service in Mumbai, in between the service she started to
manifest. Seeing this for the first time our whole family got very
worried and after we approached the evangelist and we were told that
this was because someone in her family back home was performing
witchcraft. This poor girl had to be sent back home because none among
us had any idea of what to do and how to help her.
Today it is another extreme; there was a case when a person conducting
a service had a case of manifestation and was so taken up by the
manifestation that she called me and told 'brother we got the big one
here, what should we do?' ('the big one' referring to Satan). What
astonished her even more than the manifestation was my response - I
just started laughing and that to loud! This offended her and
literally told me 'if you did not want to help you just needed to say
so but not laugh' and I told her she has no idea why I laughed. But
after sometime she called me back and apologized because she knew why
I laughed, the person had stopped manifesting and was okay.
Evil spirits like I told you last time are not spirits of dead people
but fallen angels whose powers are taken away. Being powerless they
need a body to exist in and operate from, it can be human body or even
an animal, on the contrary the Holy Spirit Who is also Spirit does not
need a body to dwell in at this level of creation but chooses only
humans not animals.
Both the Holy Spirit and evil spirits require something to dwell by in
a person, without which they cannot. The evil spirits require worms of
the spirit world and the Holy Spirit requires Fruit(s) of the Spirit
world. The worms of the spirit world are greed, pride, evil tongue,
deceit, hatred, fear, laziness, gluttony, faithlessness etc. and the
fruits of the Holy Spirit are known to you.
To understand why these are required you need to understand how one
gets dental root canal problems. Decay of our teeth although being
strong starts with just a rough edge, thus a dentist when checking a
patient takes a instruments and rubs over the tooth of doubt to see if
it holds. Worms require erosion, but on the other hand Holy Spirit
requires a polished surface to hold on (that’s the reason more efforts
are required for the growth in the Holy Spirit and less for the evil
spirit).
Erosion or shine are required without which no spirit being will not
be able to hold on to you. Meditating, spending time and efforts on
either a worm or Fruit will give a chance for that spirit being to
hold on to you.
The reason why evil spirits manifest is due to fear. They do because
of the presence of the glory of God brings fear in them that they
would lose the host in which they dwell and if they do not find
another host soon then they will become weak and even cease to exist.
The other reason they manifest to induce the worm of fear into the
people around so that they can use it to attach unto them. This is a
reason that Jesus when delivering use to bring that spirit into
control by shutting them up or binding them using His authority.
Like fear they also use the worm lies as tool if they find the person
before them not knowledgeable. Therefore never let fear or any other
worm get into you when you see a manifestation but let the knowledge
and authority in Jesus Christ work in you and through you.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, man is ignorant of the spirit world and due to lack of
knowledge and understanding becomes a victim and suffers. Lord, your
Word gives us all the knowledge and understanding we need to know of
the spirit World. Lord, we pray that Word spreads throughout all the
people in this world and your knowledge grows in them making them what
You want them to be - your Sons of authority...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Mark 1:23-27
23 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and
he cried out,
24 Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of
Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art, the
Holy One of God.
25 And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.
26 And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud
voice, he came out of him.
27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among
themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for
with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do
obey him.
Mark 7:25-30
25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit,
heard of him, and came and fell at his feet:
26 The woman was a Greek, a Syrophenician by nation; and she besought
him that he would cast forth the devil out of her daughter.
27 But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it
is not meet to take the children’s bread, and to cast it unto the
dogs.
28 And she answered and said unto him, Yes, Lord: yet the dogs under
the table eat of the children's crumbs.
29 And he said unto her, For this saying go thy way; the devil is
gone out of thy daughter.
30 And when she was come to her house, she found the devil gone out,
and her daughter laid upon the bed.
Matthew 12:43-45
43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through
dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out;
and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more
wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last
state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also
unto this wicked generation.
Mark 9:17-18, 25-27
17 And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought
unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit;
18 And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and
gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples
that they should cast him out; and they could not.
25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked
the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge
thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.
26 And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and
he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead.
27 But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.
Galatians 5:22-23
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Pray for the Messengers

Romans 10: 15, 16 - And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as
it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the
gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! But they have
not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed
our report?

Over the years many have been talking about Jesus; preaching and
teaching the Word of God, but yet we had very few true messengers.

People since ages have been adapting the Word for mankind not the
other way adapting mankind to the Word. When a doctor gives a
prescription he knows what, why and how it is needed for the patient,
thus changing anything will not get the desired result.

People think the Word of God will bring peace among mankind and all
things will be alright - this is the first lie. Let me tell you things
will be the other way around, try it and see for yourself, people
close to you will not like you if you start to speak the truth always.
Truth hurts, its convicts many of his or her doings and no one likes
that.

The first purpose of the Word of God and the main reason that Jesus
died for us is to make peace between God and man and not between man
and man. Man has been suffering all because the anger of God and the
curse of God were on man. Jesus is called the Prince of Peace not the
King of Peace. Peace is only in the hands of God and He alone can give
peace. Jesus was man on earth and is the chief messenger of peace. We
as His disciples just carry His message of peace to others. It is this
message if received will bring peace between God and man and among
those who receive it. But those who do not like it will hate you even
more.

The Word of God like an antibiotic is anti-world. It is actually not
against this world but the infection of this world. But the problem is
that the infection is so deep in this world that people have lost
sense of what is the truth and what is the infection. For them the
infection has become their world and if you touch that area they will
hate you.

Do not even remotely think that once you have the Word of God in you
all things around you will be perfect. If Jesus Who was perfect, for
Him things were not perfect, then how will it be for us?

What is important is not what happens here but where we will go. We
are just passing through this temporary world and are made really for
the world which Jesus has opened the door to and to which the Holy
Spirit will lead us to. Even the Word of God (the Book of Instruction)
which is Truth and unshakable is also not permanent. It too has to
return back to God doings its work like the Jesus Christ the Son of
God will return as God the Son in His glory to the Father.

The message for today asks us to pray for true messenger, who bring
the truth to us, even though we like it or not. Let us bless them and
pray for them and many pray that our hearts are changed to receive the
Truth.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord, through time You have been sending your chosen ones to mankind
to guide us to the truth. Today Lord we need them more than ever, so
we lift our eyes unto You and to your Mountains in Heaven, where You
are seated in all your glory, Lord send us your elect, your chosen
ones who bring your message in Truth. Work in us Lord and strengthen
us that we hold on to the Truth...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Luke 4:25-30
25 But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days
of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when
great famine was throughout all the land;
26 But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of
Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.
27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet;
and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.
28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were
filled with wrath,
29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the
brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast
him down headlong.
30 But he passing through the midst of them went his way,

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

John 14:16-20
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another
Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because
it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he
dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me:
because I live, ye shall live also.
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me,
and I in you.

Colossians 3:12-14
12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of
mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have
a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of
perfectness [fruits of the Holy Spirit].

Matthew 10:34-40
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to
send peace, but a sword.
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the
daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her
mother in law.
36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me:
and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not
worthy of me.
39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his
life for my sake shall find it.
40 He that receiveth you [speaking to His disciples] receiveth me,
and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.

Mark 9:50
50 Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith
will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with
another.

John 14:27
27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world
giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let
it be afraid.

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

Why are we troubled and have doubts?

Luke 24: 38 - And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do
thoughts arise in your hearts?

If you read a few lines before today's scripture after Jesus appeared
He was walk in the wilderness and started conversation with two other
persons who were walking towards Emmaus (the Greek word means 'hot
baths/spring' and the Hebrew word originates comes from the word
'day') which was 7.5 miles or 12kms from Jerusalem towards Galilee.
These two have a close and special encounter with Jesus, for Jesus in
His conversation with them explains to them things which He had not
yet done to even His own disciples (about Him in the books of Moses).

These two among whom one was Cleopas, went back to Jerusalem and met
the eleven disciples. You will notice in Mark they were told to go
towards Galilee to meet Jesus but yet they did not obey and were still
in Jerusalem.

After Jesus finished His journey He appears unto them (the eleven and
two) in Jerusalem and all still had doubts seeing Him. Jesus shows
them His wounds and asks them to touch it. It is not that they had a
problem to identify Jesus but the problem was that they could not
believe Jesus had risen and was in the flesh therefore Jesus goes to
the extent of asking for food and eats with them, doing a physical
bodily activity.

The Apostles knew that after death a person becomes a spirit being but
they did not understand the powers of a spirit being and could digest
the fact that Jesus could take a physical form after He had risen.

If you are into molecular physics and get deep into the molecular
structure you will realize all matter ultimately is made of energy
almost nothing. This will make a person realize that this physical
world is not as real as people believe. We need to get into us that
the real world is the spirit world and this physical world is
temporary and more like a hologram. We live in a world that is
relative; the 4 direction (NSEW) and 4 dimensions (height, width,
depth and time) all are relative in nature in a universe which is
suspended in nowhere, created by the breath of God. Even life is
formed by the Word of God (DNA is like a language and man is the only
unique being having 23 chromosomes, study this with the Word of God
and your mind will be blown understanding how God operates and what
really life is).

Our mind is trained from the beginning believing on our 5 senses and
anything else does not get digested by our mind. The inputs to our
inner man (our real us) comes so much from our bodily 5 senses that we
rarely tune to the inputs which come from our spirit being which is of
the real world. When you understand this then you will realize why
Adam and Eve felt naked when sin came into them.

What we know of the Kingdom of God till date is not even a fraction
and that is why we doubt. We humans from childhood are so much into
this world that we measure the Kingdom of God also by human measures.

To understand the Kingdom of God we will need to empty our human mind
and understanding, that is the reason in the sacrifices given to Moses
yeast was not allowed in any except very little in one particular
sacrifice. That too this sacrifice was not consumed by man but by fire
to be a burnt sacrifice.

What we know as science simply means understanding this creation which
God has made and since we have not understood it fully science is
limited. With limited knowledge we are surely going to be distorted in
our understanding. On the other hand the Word of God is complete,
unshakable and true. It is truer than this world is.

The more worldly knowledge one has it becomes more difficult for that
person to understand the Kingdom of God. Worldly knowledge is not bad
and is necessary for us to dwell among man but when it comes to God we
should not let take the top place.

Use not our knowledge to understand God and His Kingdom but let Him
give us the understanding of who we really are.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You created this wonderful world but sin and the knowledge of
good and bad polluted it and distorted the Truth. Lord, You in your
mercies gave us your Word which is Truth and by which we can come out
of this distorted world and come into understanding of the true world
which is your Kingdom. Lord, help us overcome our minds and our
understanding and come into your Truth...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Mark 16:5-9
5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on
the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were
affrighted.
6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of
Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the
place where they laid him.
7 But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before
you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.
8 And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they
trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for
they were afraid.
9 Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he
appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven
devils.

Luke 24:30-43
30 And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread,
and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.
31 And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out
of their sight.
32 And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us,
while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the
scriptures?
33 And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and
found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,
34 Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.
35 And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was
known of them in breaking of bread.
36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them,
and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had
seen a spirit.
38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts
arise in your hearts?
39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and
see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.
41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said
unto them, Have ye here any meat?
42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
43 And he took it, and did eat before them.

Leviticus 23:16-18
16 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number
fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD.
17 Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two
tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baken with
leaven; they are the firstfruits unto the LORD.
18 And ye shall offer with the bread seven lambs without blemish of
the first year, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be for
a burnt offering unto the LORD, with their meat offering, and their
drink offerings, even an offering made by fire, of sweet savour unto
the LORD.

Rejecting the Messenger

Romans 9: 1-3
1 I say the truth in Christ, I lie not, my conscience also bearing me
witness in the Holy Ghost,
2 That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart.
3 For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my
brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh:
I like to once again confirm about how I get the message of the day so
that people remove the concept that I search for scriptures connecting
events.
When I sit to write I pray over the Bible asking the Lord for a
message for the day and open any page and place my finger on any
scripture on that page. I have found this works with me every time I
need a message from the Lord because I have the understanding of the
Urim and Thummim (it was by this the twelfth Apostle was also
selected) the objects which were in breast plate of judgment (Exodus
28:30).
In today's we have Paul who is trying very hard to convince the Romans
that he speaks the truth and shows how he is disturbed by them
rejecting him.
People when they accuse a person bring the truth are not actually
targeting the person but actually the message. They do not want to
accept the message and since the message is the Word of God and
unshaken they target the person who brings the message. The message
may not be a prophetic message but just an understanding of
scriptures; it still is a message like in the case of Paul.
You need to understand people have different callings and according to
their calling the Lord works in them. Being blessed as a Teacher the
Lord reveals the understanding of His scriptures (only a Teacher will
tell you what he/she goes through in life as the Lord teaches, it is
for that reason James warned not to be too happy being called a
Teacher), but that does not mean the Teacher knows everything.
If one understanding of the 7 Spirits of the Holy Spirit then one will
understand that each one has a part to play in receiving, delivering
and applying the message into the body of Christ.
Yesterday I was to send a message but could not and it was connected
to feeling rich in spirit or having.
Having possessions is not wrong but being rich is. One should realize
that everything is God given and we are just managers of all these. It
may be money, people, ability (also called talents), skills, ministry,
or even knowledge of the Kingdom of God.
It was sad when I heard a head of a ministry claiming the people
working in his ministry were his employees. No ministry or church is
any person's but the Lord's for all provisions are from the Lord. All
work for the Lord and for His plans for mankind so that we all receive
it in our lives and Jesus Christ is His plan in our lives.
Just some weeks back a Pastor instructed another Pastor not allowed me
to preach among his congregation because he did not agree with my
understanding on some matters. Even though the people of his
congregation were being blessed with the understanding, the leaders
had to abide with their human boss. I did feel sad and cried to the
Lord and He gave me a message reminding me He is the purpose for whom
I work and He also told me to uses His shame on the crucifix as an
example to abide by in my life.
A preacher righty said pruning happens only to branches which grow.
Also being humble does not mean acting like a fool. The Word says from
the Wise flows words of knowledge and wisdom. Jesus humbled Himself as
a perfect example but He did speak and was also thought to be mad and
demon possessed but that did not stop Him.
If God has blessed you, you use it to bless others with it, but always
understand we all work with one purpose, which is Christ.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You showed how to be humble by You coming as mere man and
by the shame You bore on the crucifix for us. Lord, remind us always
the purpose that we work for in your Kingdom. Lord, strengthen us and
build us in You. We pray for all those who work for You and are
persecuted because of your message...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Exodus 28:30
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.
Numbers 27:20-21
20 And thou shalt put some of thine honour upon him, that all the
congregation of the children of Israel may be obedient.
21 And he shall stand before Eleazar the priest, who shall ask
counsel for him after the judgment of Urim before the LORD: at his
word shall they go out, and at his word they shall come in, both he,
and all the children of Israel with him, even all the congregation.
1 Samuel 28:6
6 And when Saul enquired of the LORD, the LORD answered him not,
neither by dreams, nor by Urim, nor by prophets.
Psalms 113:4-8
4 The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens.
5 Who is like unto the LORD our God, who dwelleth on high,
6 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and
in the earth!
7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out
of the dunghill;
8 That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people.

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ

Luke 24:10 - It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of
James, and other women that were with them, which told these things
unto the apostles.

Yesterday we were given scripture regarding resurrection of us all and
today we received a scripture on the same topic but connected to
Jesus. To understand resurrection more clearly we need to understand
the resurrection of Jesus, for this we need to look at the events with
a magnifying glass.

People have been given lost of understandings which they do not verify
with scriptures and have received them unconditionally. The people of
Thessalonica did not spare even Paul and verified every understanding
he preached with the scripture when they went home, this is the reason
they were among the most mature in spirit. I may send you some
understanding or someone else will, but unless you do not sit by
yourself and verify them you will not grow in spirit.

I started my journey with the Lord with a blank page. In the start I
had read hardly any books and they were namely 'Good morning Holy
Spirit' by Benny Hinn, 'Faith' and 'Thou shall cast away demons', both
by Derek Prince. All my understanding was just by sitting with the
Lord on a day to day basis, even today on my teaching website I list
the books I read so that people would know what and where I get my
understanding from.

Today I will attend to some of the myths connected with the
resurrection of Jesus.


Myth no 1 - Resurrection of Jesus was a sign of Joanna.

When Jesus died of the cross the time was the 3rd watch which was
evening time. The death was on a Thursday as per the scripture in
John. Friday was a special Sabbath and Jesus resurrected on Sunday the
day of celebration of the Peace sacrifice. So that does not make it 3
days and 3 nights as it was in the case of Joanna. Jesus resurrected
on the 3rd day not completing the 3rd day.

Now about the sign of Jonah, Jesus said this sign was a sign for the
wicket nations, why did Jesus say this. You will find it interesting
to know that Jonah did not run away because he was scared. Jonah knew
that the task which was given to him would surely be successful and
had to complete in the time period of 40 days as declared by the Lord.
So Jonah went in a direction or destination from where it would take
him more than 40 days to reach Nineveh. Jonah did this because he
wanted the wicket people (the state of their wickedness can be
understood from historical data) to be punished, he did not want them
to receive the message of repentance and be saved. This is confirmed
by Jonah's actions after the Ninevites repented and were saved. But
God had his way and took Jonah back to Nineveth in a way he did not
expect (about Jonah being in the belly of a whale there is substantial
proof and he has not been the only one who lived through the belly of
a whale, another who lived in the belly of a whale for nearly a day is
James Bartley). In fact Jonah’s rebelling helped the message strike
the message of repentance in the hearts of the Nineveties. It had made
him pale all over and also they were expecting a man coming from a
fish to be their savior (the walls of Nineveth had such a carving near
the entrance gate).

Hell does not work of basis of earthly time that Jesus needed to be
there for 2 and half earthly days. This was a symbolic to show that
just before the 12th hour the Lord will save us, for had Jesus
resurrected completing the 3rd day we would not have any hope to be
saved.

Understand spirit man has a limited life span and which was revealed
to me by the Lord as 3000 years. There is no scripture which says this
but this understanding is proven in the whole Bible. When you
understand this then you will have the fear of the Lord in you.

Jesus came just before 3000 years from the time of Noah to save the
souls since Noah who were in Hell and fulfill His promise to Noah.
Also He came just in time before the End Day which will be about
2500AD (this figure is given in many places including books of Moses
and Daniel) so as to save us (this makes all the events stated in the
Bible to be completed within this time period for the end will not
come until every scripture is fulfilled).


Myth no. 2 - Jesus defeated Satan on the crucifix.

This is a concept which man believes in because they have bought God
down to the level of human understanding. God is the Almighty Creator,
Omnipotent and Omnipresent. Nothing was and is without Him. Satan too
is God's creation and is no competition for the Lord. The Lord took
time and pain throughout creation not because it is difficult to
finish Satan; He would do that with just a word of His mouth. He did
all this so that man could be blessed with the plans God has for him
before Satan is accounted for his doing. When Jesus said He is going
to the Father where there are many mansions and will prepare a place
for us. It is not that Heaven is incomplete that Jesus is completing
the job. When God created this creation Heaven already existed in its
completion. The mansions already exist and Jesus is not doing the
interior decoration of these mansions. When Jesus said this word it
was a metaphor which means He is preparing the hearts of man to
receive the various mansions which exist in Heaven. Though Jesus is
there work is happening here through the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
Heaven is not just a great big hall; it has many levels all according
to the spiritual riches of a soul which dwells at that level. The
Heaven of Heavens is the highest level closest to God's glorious
throne (throne does not mean a chair for God is not man, God is
present everywhere but His glory is prominent in a specific level
which is specific as Throne).

The sacrifice of Jesus was for the healing of man and reconciling of
man to God. You can say Jesus defeated the plans of Satan on the
crucifix but to deal with Satan Jesus will come again as man on a
cloud with his Angels.


Myth no. 3 - the sacrifice was completed on the crucifix.

You will understand the sacrifice of Jesus when you realize that Jesus
fulfilled all the sacrifices of Moses in His sacrifice. When I was
studying the books of Moses the Lord opened my mind to each sacrifice
and revealed how it was fulfilled in Jesus (this I have been writing
on my teaching on Jesus The Ultimate Sacrifice taking into account all
the 4 Gospels). If you observe Jesus did two odd things after He
resurrected. One was He did not allow Mary Magdalene to touch Him and
second He went for a stroll in the wilderness on to Galilee.

About Jesus not allowing Mary Magdalene to touch Him but after His
stroll He allows Thomas to touch Him. If you look at the words which
Jesus spoke to Mary denying her to touch Him, He gave the reason that
He had yet not ascended to the Father. Heaven is not a planet some
place in space that Jesus needed clouds to rise up above the earth.
Jesus denied Mary to touch Him because He had not completed the
sacrifice even after He came back from Hell. His walking in the desert
going to Galilee was the last sacrifice which needed to be complete.
Jesus did nothing just for the sake of it; He did not have any
specific purpose to go to Galilee.

If you go into each sacrifice which Jesus did in His sacrifice you
will understand richness of the Lord's sacrifice. His Blood is not so
cheap to be used against Satan, He shed it for you and me to save us
from the wrath of God. For Satan just His Name is sufficient.

The sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Resurrection) was not just the death
and reappearing of Jesus, it was to open a door by the cancellation of
the sentence of death which was on man. Today you and I have a hope to
enter Heaven because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, we thank You for your mercies. Your sacrifice was a
completion of all that was required to heal and reconcile man to God.
By your sacrifice You opened the door which was shut for man to enter
Heaven, thus giving us a new hope to enter into our inheritance in You
in Heaven. Lord by your Spirit take us through this door, while we are
on earth prepare our hearts so that we receive great in your House...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
John 19:31
31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the
bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that
sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be
broken, and that they might be taken away.

Matthew 17:22-23
22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of
man shall be betrayed into the hands of men:
23 And they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised
again. And they were exceeding sorry.

Matthew 27:63-64
63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet
alive, After three days I will rise again.

day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say
unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be
worse than the first.

Luke 24:20-23
20 And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be
condemned to death, and have crucified him.
21 But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed
Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these
things were done.
22 Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished,
which were early at the sepulchre;
23 And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had
also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.

Jonah 3:1-4
1 And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying,
2 Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city, and preach unto it the
preaching that I bid thee.
3 So Jonah arose, and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the
LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days’ journey.
4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he
cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.

Jonah 1:17
17 Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And

this my saying, when I was yet in my country? Therefore I fled before
unto Tarshish: for I knew that thou art a gracious God, and merciful,
slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repentest thee of the evil.
3 Therefore now, O LORD, take, I beseech thee, my life from me; for
it is better for me to die than to live.
4 Then said the LORD, Doest thou well to be angry?
5 So Jonah went out of the city, and sat on the east side of the
city, and there made him a booth, and sat under it in the shadow, till
he might see what would become of the city.

Mark 8:11-12
11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him,
seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.
12 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this
generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no
sign be given unto this generation.

Luke 11:29-32
29 And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say,
This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign
be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.
30 For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son
of man be to this generation.
31 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men
of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost
parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a
greater than Solomon is here.
32 The men of Nineve shall rise up in the judgment with this
generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching
of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.

with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the
midst, and said, Peace be unto you.
27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my
hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be
not faithless, but believing.
28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified.
6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place
where the Lord lay.
7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the
dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye
see him: lo, I have told you.
8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great
joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and
all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head
of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the
wilderness:
22 And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land
not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved
from wrath through him.

death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by
his life.

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Better to pray for yourself then to curse another. We must hang on, as
long as possible, to our sense of astonishment. Let us not be misled by
labels, as if calling someone a terrorist gives sense to madness.

TRIBES of ISRAEL (Part 4)
"Jacob called his sons and said, "Come together that I may tell you what
is to befall you in days to come: `Assemble and hearken, O sons of
Jacob; hearken to Israel your father.'" [Genesis (Bereshith) 49. 1
– 2 Tanakh, Torah]



The HOLY SPIRIT spoke through Jacob saying, "Zebulun shall dwell by the
seashore; he shall be a haven for ships, and his flank shall rest on
Sidon." [Genesis (Bereshith) 49. 13 Tanakh, Torah] Zebulun settled in
the favorable geographical position described here, and his tribe became
mariners. The actual territory of Zebulun is uncertain, but their
"Tribal Standard (banner)" bears the picture of a ship.



"Issachar is a strong-boned ass, crouching down among the sheepfolds.
When he saw how good was security, and how pleasant was the country, he
bent his shoulder to bear the burden, and became a toiling serf (a
servant under task-work of forced labour)." [Genesis (Bereshith) 49. 14
– 15 Tanakh, Torah]



As a strong-boned ass, the people of Issachar would have great physical
power. However, the minute they found a resting place, they would stay
right there. They would not become nomads like the rest of the people
of Israel living in tents. They did not like the life of a wandering
Jew. If Issachar found a place where he wanted to rest, he would much
prefer to pay tribute and to submit to any enemy that came upon him then
to leave his plowshare and take up a sword. He would never go to
battle. All this was fulfilled. Along with Simeon, Issachar did not
receive a blessing from Moses along with the other tribes in
Deuteronomy/Devarim 33.



"Dan shall govern his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. Dan shall
be a serpent by the road, a viper by the path, that bites the
horse's heels so that his rider is thrown backward. I wait for Your
deliverance, O LORD!" [Genesis (Bereshith) 49. 16 – 18 Tanakh,
Torah]



Samson came from the tribe of Dan to be one of the judges of Israel.
Dan would also be a serpent in the way, a horned snake in the way that
bites the horse's heels so that his rider falls backward. Judas
Iscariot would be coming from the tribe of Dan. The HOLY SPIRIT knew
who would betray MESSIAH YESHUA with a kiss. This is why the tribe of
Dan is not mentioned in the Book of Revelation 7. {The 144,000
Witnesses are witnesses -- not judges. Ephraim`s name is also
missing because his name means first-fruit and this company is a fixed
number.} And then Jacob said, "LORD, I am waiting for YOUR SALVATION.
I can hardly wait to come home and be with YOU, LORD. I am waiting for
YOUR SON, JESUS, I'm waiting for YOUR SALVATION, O LORD."



"Gad shall be raided by raiders, but he shall raid at their heels."
[Genesis (Bereshith) 49. 19 Tanakh, Torah] There is a play on words
here, the translation should be: "A raiding band raids him, but he will
now band himself against their heel." He would always know where to
attack, in their rear position. OMNIPOTENT GOD succeeded in expelling
the Ammonites, Moabites and the Armenian who were constantly raiding his
border. Jephthah, one of the judges of Israel, came from the tribe of
Gad. The LORD used him as an instrument to bring forth HIS victory.
Victory is always the LORD'S.



"Asher's bread shall be rich, and he shall yield royal dainties."
[Genesis (Bereshith) 49. 20 Tanakh, Torah] Asher's territory stretched
from the Sea of Galilee to Mount Karem'El, close to Lebanon. The
name, Asher, means "happy" - and this meaning is reflected in the
blessing that is bestowed upon him. The land of Asher was prosperous
and happy; they lived in and around Arabia and parts of Israel, where
they went in business making delicacies fit for the tables of kings.
{In Deuteronomy/Devarim 33, Moses blesses the tribes and of Asher he
spoke of him "dipping his heel in oil." The olive tree grow prevalent in
the area allotted to him and the olive oil is indeed used for making of
dainties.} The HOLY SPIRIT is never wrong, always true.



"Naphtali is a hind let loose; which yields lovely fawns (or "gives
lovely words")." [Genesis (Bereshith) 49. 21 Tanakh, Torah] This gives
us an image of swiftness and grace in movement. "Yields lovely fawns"
refers to the tribe's reputation for persistence and eloquence. The
great victory of Barak [Judges/Shofetym 4. 15 - 16], who was of the
tribe of Naphtali, was followed by the glorious song of Devorah, also of
the tribe of Naphtali who "gives goodly words." [Judges/Shofetym 5. 12]
They would not only follow through where the LORD led them, they would
also bring forth words of praise and thanksgiving unto the ALMIGHTY LORD
OF HOSTS, the HOPE OF ISRAEL.



. . . to be continued!



Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Welcome Sabbath! Come, celebrate in the tradition of Melaveh Malkeh
(escorting in the Sabbath) – Queen of the week!
Of old the MASTER DESIGNER rested on the seventh day and blessed it.
Exalted and highly praised be the LORD, the CREATOR , the LIVING GOD and
EVERLASTING KING, HIS abundance of mercies and loving-kindness rest upon
HIS servants. Blessed be the glory of the LORD our GOD; enjoy HIS
perfect peace and presence.


Praying for the peace of Jerusalem is praying for the return of Messiah
Jesus and His Kingdom.

Resurrection of the dead

Mark 12: 23 - In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise,
whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.

There are many things which even the most elect are deceived on and
one of them is understanding resurrection.

In today's scripture Jesus answers on people getting resurrected and
uses the word 'in the resurrection', He did not say when they each
resurrect.

Almost all believers think they will resurrect when they die and will
go to Heaven.

Firstly let me touch on resurrection and then about where they go.

We as humans are made of body, soul (inner man) and spirit. In this
world when we die, we actually do not die but only our body dies; our
soul and spirit still lives. If our spirit lives then what is
resurrection?

People answer to this is we come back into our physical body.

Jesus says in the same text that we will be like the Angels. Angels do
not have a body. Man has is his imagination made Angels in human forms
like the made God the Father as an old man. God the Father is younger
than any being and also older than any being is or was. God is ageless
so no one can depict Him even symbolically as an old man.

Angels have come in the Bible in different forms so no one can fix
them to a form. They are spirit being and dwell in a Spirit world
called Heaven. They can come as any physical form they desire for they
are formless physically. They have a body which is a spiritual body
but not a physical body.

All through scriptures all Men of God when they died (before Jesus and
even after Jesus’ death and resurrection) did not enter Heaven
scriptures say they were either gathered unto their fathers, went to
sleep / grave or as Jesus puts it, went to the bosom of Abraham.

Let's take the case of Stephen who died as a martyr, although being a
martyr and even saying Lord receive my spirit, yet the scripture says
he slept. Also taking the case of Samuel who was an anointed Man of
God and scriptures show that Saul called his spirit from sleep (grave)
and not from Heaven.

It is this misunderstanding of resurrection and death by which the
beast has being deceiving people of God and therefore the spirit have
deceived many coming spirits of dead persons, a woman who is claimed
to have ascended into Heaven (this is one of the greatest plots of the
beast) and people praying to and for death souls.

In very simple English resurrection is not come back to life nor
anything else but just the cancellation of our sentence from hell. We
all (whole mankind) as sinners were sentenced to hell; but by
believing in Jesus Christ we are saved from it. It does matter how
good or bad a Christian you are, you are saved from hell because you
believe in Jesus Christ. Mind you, this does not mean you enter
Heaven.

Entering Heaven will be judged by Jesus Christ Who will come as Son of
man on the Judgment Day. Those found not keeping the Word of God will
be counted among the goats and those keeping the Word among the sheep.
Both the goats and the sheep will wake up from their sleep to be
judged on the Judgment Day, the sheep will receive those free fruits
by the Lord so that they can enter Heaven - this is called
resurrection. Paul also calls it making the corrupt into
incorruptible. (Even the 144000 who are the first resurrection also
fall well into this understanding - I cannot get into those details in
my daily mails which I try to keep short)

Goats and sheep are part of the flock and also the same physically
except from the sheep have wool and the goat have horns. Wool
symbolizes grace and horns as rulers or lords. Sheep have no horns for
the Lord is their ruler and lord, but the goats have also made the
world and their desires as their lord and therefore have horns. Those
not covered by the grace of God and having lords other than the Lord
are counted among the goats.

The sentence which the goats will receive is far worse than those who
do not believe in Jesus Christ. You will understand this when you
understand hell. Hell is not a place like a pit where fire burns
eternally and where Satan rules. God rules every where even hell and
there is an Angel of the Lord who is specially assigned to guard hell.

Hell is a prison to which even Jesus Christ went to because the sins
of all of us were on Him. But since no sin was in Him therefore He
could not be kept there and thus came back from this prison. In this
prison the fire in inside the soul of the person and burns according
to their doings. Jesus did not suffer in hell because there was no sin
in Him. As Peter puts He preached in Hell to the souls right up to
those from Noah. What about the souls before Noah? If you understand
this you will know that perfect time Jesus came on earth and did all
that He did and there was no other time better than that. Had Jesus
come earlier or later it would have been a great catastrophe.

By this you will understand why Jesus said the sign of Joanna was sign
for this wicked nation.

The place where the goats will go will be a place which is called lake
of fire and in one place also called a lake of sulphur. Spirit world
is not a physical place but these descriptions are symbolic. People
living in garbage dumps get used to the stink and do not feel it as a
person going there for the first time. Man is made in that fashion to
adapt to his environment. But sulphur is the old chemical or scent
which man cannot adapt to. A person going to a sulphur mine on the
first day will suffer the same as a person working there since ages.

A Christians who has rejected the Word just before dying or since a
long time, they will both suffer the same irrespective of what they
did. You may be a Christian giving tithes regularly, doing social
work, preaching the Word, healing people, doing miracles etc. but if
you rejected the Word in your life you will not enter Heaven and will
face the lake of sulpur as much as a Christian who did not do anything
good.

It does not require you to abide by all the Laws or Commandments of
God but those whose understanding has been revealed unto you. God is a
just and merciful God, but also a righteous God Who hates evil.

The sheep, who are found good will enter Heaven. One does not need to
be perfect to be a sheep for like I said sheep and goat in the raw are
the same weak. It is only that the sheep operates under the grace of
Lord Jesus Christ and has no ruler or lord other than the Lord Jesus
Christ. His desire is not the world but the Kingdom of God.

You may be weak falling many a times. God never expected you to be
able to overcome by yourself. Knowing it after making a door to cancel
the sentence of death, He gave us His Spirit to Whom if we surrender
we will become overcomers and enter into our eternal life in the Lord.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You came as man abiding to the rules set by You, became an
eternal sacrifice for us canceling death and giving us the
resurrection. After we resurrect we will be judged and will enter
Heaven, this is the hope we keep in You. Open the minds of your people
that they may understand your creation and not be deceived by the evil
one...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Acts 7:59-60
59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus,
receive my spirit.
60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not
this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.

1 Peter 3:18-20
18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the
unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the
flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
20 Which 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.

Matthew 25:31-34
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy
angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall
separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from
the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye
blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the
foundation of the world:

Matthew 7:21-23
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the
kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in
heaven.
22 Many 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?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from
me, ye that work iniquity.

Revelation 20:10-15
10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire
and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be
tormented day and night for ever and ever.
11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose
face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place
for them.
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the
books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of
life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written
in the books, according to their works.
13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell
delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every
man according to their works.
14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the
second death.
15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast
into the lake of fire.

Coming as a thief

1 Thessalonians 5:1-4 - But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye
have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that
the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they
shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them,
as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye,
brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a
thief.

Paul who had good knowledge of scriptures and who would study them
along with his other colleagues also taught this understanding to the
people whom he ministered.

When Paul writes to them about the Judgment Day, he starts the topic
with 'you have no need that I write unto you'. Paul was very clear
with the fall of events right unto the last day of this creation and
right unto man entering unto Heaven. If you read further he says that
day will come as 'a thief in the night', but if you read two lines
ahead he also says 'but you, brethren, are not in darkness, that that
day should overtake you as a thief'.

The Word of God is 'A Word' and is also referred to as 'instructions
to man's salvation'. One needs to understand the purpose of these
instructions, the reason God created this creation, why God put man in
the weak flesh and why God allowed sin to come into man.

Jesus said He was the Good Shepherd and not a thief who comes to steal
and destroy. The Judgment Day will come suddenly as a thief only to
those who are not enlightened with the Light.

A sister responded to my mail on this topic and also send me a long
list of scriptures she though was connected to this. I took each
scripture and responded with details showing how people connected
without understanding. People add to scriptures and make up their own
human understanding of events like a motion picture.

When I started writing as the Lord started teaching me on a one to one
basis, one of the first topics which I wrote on was a summary of
creations (7 chapters), right from the start to the end of creation.
These were taught to me with visions and wonders. Today as I have
grown more in knowledge and understanding I look back at what I had
written, even though I do not find it 100 percent perfect but the
frame line of it, of what the Lord taught me is perfect. Even before
the Lord could teach me on things like patience and inner man, the
Lord wanted me to be clear in understanding His plans for me. By this
I can now have much better understanding of His love, His nature, fear
of Him, His ways etc...

Like the first day the Lord came into my life (made me aware of His
presence) the first thing He did was give me a vision of what I will
achieve in my life time on earth. Today since I know the result I am
walking to it, having faith in Him who will see it fulfill, any kind
of persecution, threat or danger does not affect me nor put me down,
for I know even if someone kills me I will still need to come back to
receive what the Lord has given unto me.

Once you start to know Christ and His purpose all things will start to
unfold unto you with clarity and any kind of confusion existing will
be sorted out.

To give you an example like I mentioned before I am writing my fourth
part on the Heart / Inner man and since 2 to 3 months I have not been
able to move ahead. Just last Sunday I realized the reason, the
foundation on which was moving I had erred add my own to what the Lord
revealed. I had modified the truth and this could seriously mislead
others. Now that, that error had been corrected I am sure something
great will be unfold unto me.

People of God; the Lord does not want you to walk in darkness, without
understanding, He is not a God of confusion but of order. Make sure
any understanding you carry is in line to all scriptures. If you find
it contradicting even one, test that understanding with other
scriptures and the truth will be exposed unto you. The Bible has in
build multi-level verification, having confirmations to every
understanding in build into it.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, You are Light and You want us to walk in light, therefore
You have given your plan for us in your Word. Your Word has everything
that needs to be known to us in it so that we cannot be misled. Lord,
help us to trust more in your Word than our understanding, be our
Teacher...

We make this prayer in Jesus’ Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
2 Timothy 4:9-17
9 Give diligence to come shortly unto me:
10 for Demas forsook me, having loved this present world, and went to
Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus to Dalmatia.
11 Only Luke is with me. Take Mark, and bring him with thee; for he
is useful to me for ministering.
12 But Tychicus I sent to Ephesus.
13 The cloak that I left at Troas with Carpus, bring when thou
comest, and the books, especially the parchments.
14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord will render
to him according to his works:
15 of whom do thou also beware; for he greatly withstood our words.
16 At my first defence no one took my part, but all forsook me: may
it not be laid to their account.
17 But the Lord stood by me, and strengthened me; that through me the
message might me fully proclaimed, and that all the Gentiles might
hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion.

Acts 17:10-11
10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night
unto Beroea: who when they were come thither went into the synagogue
of the Jews.
11 Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they
received the word with all readiness of the mind, examining the
Scriptures daily, whether these things were so.

Ephesians 3:1-12
1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus in behalf of
you Gentiles,—
2 if so be that ye have heard of the dispensation of that grace of
God which was given me to you-ward;
3 how that by revelation was made known unto me the mystery, as I
wrote before in few words,
4 whereby, when ye read, ye can perceive my understanding in the
mystery of Christ;
5 which in other generations was not made known unto the sons of men,
as it hath now been revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets in
the Spirit;
6 to wit, that the Gentiles are fellow-heirs, and fellow-members of
the body, and fellow-partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through
the gospel,
7 whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of that grace
of God which was given me according to the working of his power.
8 Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, was this grace
given, to preach unto the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
9 and to make all men see what is the dispensation of the mystery
which for ages hath been hid in God who created all things;
10 to the intent that now unto the principalities and the powers in
the heavenly places might be made known through the church the
manifold wisdom of God,
11 according to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
12 in whom we have boldness and access in confidence through our faith in him.

Be Overcomers

Revelation 2:17 - He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit
saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of
the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a
new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

Sorry today I will be cracking a false concept in among most
believers. I do not blame them for this problem but those who thought
them this.

One of the most favorite scripture of 'prosperity Gospel' is 2
Corinthians 8:9 "For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that,
though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through
his poverty might be rich".

First understand the definition of poor means one who lacks. Jesus
never lacked, He had all what He needed, even when He needed money to
pay for the taxes God provided Him through a fish. What does a man
need to live?

What the scripture means is that God the Son humbled Himself to become
mere man so that we can be lifted up and become Sons of God.

Now about provisions the Word of God always promises all your needs
will be satisfied. About the extra the extra is just over the overflow
line and this overflow is not for you but for you to give those who
are in need around you. That shaken down pressed is still in that
vessel not in another additional vessel meaning lacking nothing.
Therefore if you have been blessed abundantly please pray more because
that extra is your test.

Understand we as Christians need to overcome and overcome our carnal
desires. And the abundance is not going to help us overcome but in
fact make it even more difficult. Realize the first thing that bought
a very, very spiritually anointed being like Lucifer (you will
understand this only when you come to know who he was, not what people
know of him) was attack of the worm greed. He did not desire wrong
things but good things, the only problem was that he desired it
without purpose and this abundance bought pride and other worms in
him.

The danger is not in bad things only but even good things having no
purpose. God created this universe and every particle of dust to every
cell of our body with purpose.

All purposes change according to time therefore will not help us
overcome. It is only when we overcome our desires with the one and
only purpose that never changes will we become overcomers; the purpose
being the purpose of Christ - The CROSS (not crucifix but reconciling
mankind with God, of which the crucifix was a part and our CROSS is
our role in Christ's purpose).

To those who overcome is given the hidden manna. Hidden does not mean
not knowing but means which is impossible for man to receive or get by
any or every possible efforts that man can try. They are no something
we can earn but are given free to those who overcome. These hidden
were made known to me a few weeks back and this helped me understand
the purpose of Christ well. In today’s mail I would be able to put
them down but will do as the Lord leads me (you can pray for that and
it will happen).

In those days a person voted by putting a pebble (stone) in a
collection box / bag. Stone represents right or authority and Jesus
put this symbolically in the parable of the prodigal son by a ring.
The white stone is the authority we will have as Sons of God by the
true Name of the Lord not yet known to man but only to the Sons of
God.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, by your grace and love You found it worthy to make mere man
into your Sons. By your humbling Yourself, You lifted us up for this
we thank You. You knew that it would be impossible for man to enter
the door You opened by your sacrifice on the crucifix, thus You gave
us your Spirit. It is only by your Spirit that man will be able to
overcome and enter into your inheritance. We pray Holy Spirit help us
stick to You and be led by You so that we become Sons of God...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Luke 6:37-38
37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall
not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down,
and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.
For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to
you again.

Malachi 3:9-12 (removing the words which were added to make it readable)
9 Ye cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, this whole nation.
10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be
meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of
hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out
a blessing, that not room. [Luke 6:38]
11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not
destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her
fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a
delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.

Ezekiel 28:12-19
12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say
unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of
wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was
thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the
onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle,
and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared
in thee in the day that thou wast created.
14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee
so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and
down in the midst of the stones of fire.
15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created,
till iniquity was found in thee.
16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of
thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee
as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O
covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast
corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to
the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine
iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring
forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will
bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that
behold thee.
19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at
thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.

The Lord is Majestic
Psalm 104:3 - Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who
maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
In the Bible specially the Old Testament almost everything is written
in symbolism i.e. the term used for Jews (Israel), most people still
believe the spiritual Jews as those who follow Judaism. These people
are not believers so would not have anything in the Lord’s heritage.
They may be believing in the Lord God (Yahweh) but by rejecting Jesus
Christ they have indirectly rejected Yahweh. The Muslims also believe
in the God of Abraham but that does not count them as believers, their
Allah whom they believe as God does not match the character of the
Father the true Living One even if they try to relate Allah to the
Yahweh.
Paul take great pains to identifies the true Jew in all his letters as
those who are truly circumcised in the heart. And again he identifies
the true generation of Abraham (and Isaac) as those who believe in
Jesus Christ. Also the twelve tribes of Israel were defined before and
is even now by spiritual factors for Heaven is also made on these.
In today's message the Lord says He builds His chambers on beams in
the waters. 'Beams' or 'pillars' symbolize promises, 'chambers' not
His dwelling because He is God and dwells everywhere but chambers
represent the presence of His glory.

To understand 'waters' you need to understand the others symbols
connected to water, like 'rain' symbolizes mercy, 'still water' as
sin, 'river' (moving water and all by itself not river of xyz)
represents repentance and 'seas' as people. Coming to 'waters' it
represents times, not earthly time but phases of progress and clouds
which give rain as grace.

The Hebrew word which is translated here as 'wind' has been translated
also in many places as Spirit, if one replaces it with same here you
will get the right meaning of the scripture. The word 'wings of the
wind' as given here represents 'strength of His Spirit', but 'wings'
by itself represents favor.

Now putting all this together gives us an awesome understanding of the
scriptures and who God is.
"He builds His glory on the promises which He has written through
times (remember times produces testimony). He makes His grace as His
mode of operation. He works on the strength of His Spirit".
Taking these fundamentals into understanding will change your
understanding of the Old Testament and will bring light into the
shadow.
God did not change but was and is the same; and will be the same forever.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, You are an awesome God. No words can describe You or
describe even a fraction of your glory. We unworthy insects You found
worthy to love us and call us Sons so as to enable us to receive your
inheritance. Lord, we thank You for Who You Are...
This we proclaim this now and forever more through Jesus Christ, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Romans 2:28-29
28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that
circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:
29 But 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.
Romans 4:10-13
10 How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in
uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.
11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the
righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that
he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not
circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:
12 And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the
circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our
father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.
13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not
to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the
righteousness of faith.
Romans 9:6-8
6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are
not all Israel, which are of Israel:
7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all
children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not
the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for
the seed.
Galatians 3:6-9
6 Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
7 Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the
children of Abraham.
8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen
through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In
thee shall all nations be blessed.
9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
Galatians 3:27-29
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free,
there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs
according to the promise.
Zechariah 4:6
6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the
LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my
spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

Understanding spirits


Acts 16:13-18 [NIV]
13 On the Sabbath we went outside the city gate to the river, where
we expected to find a place of prayer. We sat down and began to speak
to the women who had gathered there.
14 One of those listening was a woman named Lydia, a dealer in purple
cloth from the city of Thyatira, who was a worshiper of God. The Lord
opened her heart to respond to Paul’s message.
15 When she and the members of her household were baptized, she
invited us to her home. “If you consider me a believer in the Lord,”
she said, “come and stay at my house.” And she persuaded us.
16 Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a
slave girl who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She
earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling.
17 This girl followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men
are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be
saved.”
18 She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so troubled
that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus
Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit
left her.

When I talk about spirits (evil spirits in special) many take great
interest to know what they are. Some have fear due to pass experience
but spirits never fail to invoke reactions from man.

In today’s scripture we read a woman possessed with a spirit of
divination followed Paul to a place of prayer. If you read a few lines
before there was a woman named Lydia who accepted Christ and was
baptized and it happened when wanted to receive further blessings she
invited Paul and his group for a prayer service at her place. It was
at this time the woman with a evil spirit followed them and was
provoking them.

This spirit was not lying but was telling the truth, yet we see it was
called an evil spirit and Paul and his team members were disturbed
with it. The interesting thing is the Greek name translated as
divination actually is a mythological character (a snake god which
protected an oracle).

In India too we have the same spirit but when inquired does not give a
Greek god's name but a Hindu god’s name. Are they cousins or just
deceiving us? What may interest you is that there are 33,000 gods in
Hinduism which is nearly exact 1/3 of 100000. We also read in the
Bible that when Satan fell he took with him 1/3 of the Angels from
Heaven (that does not mean there were exactly 100000 angels in Heaven
before the fall, it is just indicative figures to give us clues).

The word 'spirit' means breath which symbolizes life. Angels who are
spirit beings are just living beings and they too have a body. Their
body is not a physical body but a spiritual body. It is the character
of this body they are grouped together as legions.

Jesus says when we die and enter Heaven we too will be like the
Angels. In Heaven we will be in a body but not a physical body but a
spiritual body like the Angels, a body without gender and without
aging.

The Angels do not have eternal life like the God Head but yet live
eternally. They have a limited life but when this life starts to
nearly come to an end they renew themselves at the Tree of Life and
thus live eternally.

When Adam and Eve were created in spirit they were (and we are)
identical like the Angels but being made man and being put in a body
of flesh which restricted us and thus made us lower than the Angels.
Sin corrupted our spiritual body and therefore restricted our entering
Heaven. Heaven is an incorruptible place and no corrupt things can
enter it. The sacrifice of Jesus cleans this body and the Spirit of
God builds it so that we may be able to enter Heaven. This body is our
inner man or soul.

Angels are classified according to their soul and therefore we have
specialized Angels who are keepers of time, jail wardens, mission
specialist etc...

Evil spirits being corrupt angels are known by their corrupt bodies
and take localized names of gods to give us an indication of who they
are or which legion they belong to. They may use Indian name or names
native to whichever location you are in; in reality they are the same
according to their legion.

In the Bible their corrupt bodies are exposed to us by names of
animals. When God created creation it is written He created things
according to His kind and their kind. His kind refers to the nature of
the good Angels and their kind refers to the fallen angels. Thus all
creation being good yet God said not to eat certain animals or some
animals are considered evil or behave that way. This is not because
they are bad but the nature they symbolize is not good.

To give you an idea if you look at the stages by which Satan (Lucifer)
fell and you list the most poisonous creatures, you will see their
images in the same order to the worms which bought Lucifer down.

When God made us we were made in the nature of God, but after sin came
in us it corrupted this nature and we started to deform into different
natures that have corrupted us. So our fight after getting an entry
pass to Heaven (by believing in Jesus Christ) is to remove this
corruption so that we can really use this pass and enter Heaven. To
remove this corruption we need to build the better part of us and this
is done via building the fruit(s) of the Holy Spirit.

In the Bible when an (good) Angel appeared it is sometimes written
that the Lord appeared. This is because the Angels like us too are
made in the image of God. They are still as they were made in the
image of God but we after sin came into us have deformed.

Always remember inside each child of God is an awesome Angel waiting
to be manifested, the only thing holding back is deformation due to
the lack of fruit(s). So let us build fruit(s) in us and in others as
that on the Day which the Son of God (Jesus Christ) comes in glory we
will all be together in our true forms.


[Prayer Starters]
Lord God, You made us very beautiful by making us in your image. The
sin of Adam and Eve and the sin of our fore fathers corrupted this
body and deformed us. Your love for us would not let us perish and You
send your Begotten Son as man to be a sacrifice and by your Spirit You
work in us and save us. Lord, help us see ourselves as the finish
product as You see us even when we were in the worst state of our
lives, so that we behave and be that finish product...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Genesis 1:20-27
20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving
creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the
open firmament of heaven.
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that
moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind,
and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill
the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after
his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his
kind: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle
after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after
his kind: and God saw that it was good.
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl
of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over
every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created
he him; male and female created he them.

Mark 12:24-25
24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err,
because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor
are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.

Luke 20:34-38
34 And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world
marry, and are given in marriage:
35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and
the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in
marriage:
36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels;
and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
37 Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when
he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the
God of Jacob.
38 For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.

Hebrew 1:6-7
6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he
saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his
ministers a flame of fire.

Ephesians 4:22-24
22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man,
which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in
righteousness and true holiness.

1 Corinthians 15:51-54
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall
all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for
the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible,
and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal
must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this
mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass
the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

Stages before THE END of this world comes

Luke 2:10, 11 - Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against
nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in
divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and
great signs shall there be from heaven.

The Bible gives a clear account of time right up to the end days.
Nothing contradicts each other, if only one place them side by side
one will clearly have knowledge of what to expect and be ready for.

In today's message we have Jesus giving the stages before the end
come. You may ask how can you conclude that this is the stages before
the end comes? Match these with those from the book of Revelation
chapter 6.

Revelation 6:1
1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it
were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and
see.

Stage 1:
The period starting from Babylonian to Roman Empire
Revelation 6:2
2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a
bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and
to conquer.

Stage 2:
The Word Wars
Revelation 6:3-4
3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast
say, Come and see.
4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given
to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they
should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

Luke 21:10
10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and
kingdom against kingdom:

Stage 3:
The period of plaques
Revelation 6:5-6
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say,
Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on
him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure
of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and
see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

Stage 4:
The period of earthquakes, natural disasters, famines, sickness and
terrorism (the period we are in)
Revelation 6:7-8
7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the
fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him
was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them
over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with
hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Luke 21:11a
11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and
pestilences;....


The Day of the Lord's revenge - when the Catholic church will be bought down
Revelation 6:9-11
9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the
souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the
testimony which they held:
10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy
and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell
on the earth?
11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said
unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their
fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they
were, should be fulfilled.

The last stage – the Day of the Lord’s Wrath (before Jesus' Second coming)
Revelation 6:12-17
12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was
a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and
the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree
casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together;
and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men,
and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and
every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the
mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from
the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the
Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Luke 21:11b
11 ......and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

With this you will be not be deceived when people say the end is here,
because the end cannot come until all that is written in fulfilled.

Jesus also said that you and I will face persecution for witnessing
Him throughout theses stages before they all end.

Luke 21:12-13
12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and
persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons,
being brought before kings and rulers for my name's sake.
13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

Also if you are aware of the difficult times we are living in you will
realize and change your heart for only God can be your protector,
provider and deliverer.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You warned your people of things ahead so that they endure
with knowledge and faith, building patience. The joy of your coming
again is what gives us strength. Lord we pray for all your sheep who
are walking in darkness that they may walk in the Light of your Word.
It is your sacrifice and testimony which saves us...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Revelation 12:10-11
10 And I heard a great voice in heaven, saying, Now is come the
salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God, and the
authority of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down,
who accuseth them before our God day and night.
11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and
because of the word of their testimony; and they loved not their life
even unto death.

Matthew 24:13-14
13 But he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole
world for a testimony unto all the nations; and then shall the end
come.

Matthew 24:34
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation [also means time, nation,
age] shall not pass away, till all these things be accomplished.

Blessed women
Judges 5:24, 25 - Blessed above women shall Jael the wife of Heber the
Kenite be, blessed shall she be above women in the tent. He asked
water, and she gave him milk; she brought forth butter in a lordly
dish.
There are two women in the Bible who are given the title 'blessed',
one is Jael and the other Mary. If one observes the titles say
'blessed above women' for Jael and 'blessed among women' for Mary
(These are not my words but those from the scriptures as they are
written. In fact I noticed this scripture today for the first time as
I received it for today's message).
Mary was given the title 'blessed among women' because she was a
chosen vessel through whom Christ came. She was chosen not because she
had done anything special or she was holier than other women. She was
chosen because she was a decedent of David and she was at the perfect
time and place. She was born of sin like any other person since her
parents were sinners. This is the reason she called Jesus her Savior.
What people do not understand that sin gets transferred from the
father unto the children, not directly from the mother because of the
curse of God. If the mother is holy and the father a sinner the child
is born sinner, but if the mother is a sinner and the father holy the
child is born without sin. The Father of Jesus was Holy Spirit and
therefore Mary being sinner yet Jesus was born without sin. Sin and
curse is not in the flesh of a being but in the inner man (soul) of
the being. Mary's womb was not holier than the womb of any other
woman.
Now the sins and curses of the mother do get transferred to the child
only if the father is man and they both have come to know each other
(have physical relationship). When two people have physical
relationship they become one flesh. In Jesus' case this was not
applicable since His Father was not man in flesh but God and Spirit.
This was the only way Jesus could come as man but yet without sin.
Mary needed Jesus as much as you and I need Jesus. She was weak in
flesh as much as we are and there are two clear incidents in the Bible
which show her weakness.
First is at the marriage of Cana (which people misunderstand) where
she wanted to impress others and forced Jesus to do the miracle. Jesus
did object to this by saying 'Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine
hour is not yet come' since all His miracles were done only to glorify
the Father not Himself, His glory will be when He comes again. Yet she
stubbornly pushed Jesus to perform by commanding the servants to set
things ready. Just out of respect for her and not to insult her there
Jesus did abide and do the miracle and this did cause the people to
glorify Him and bring Him fame as feared.
The other place where the weakness of Mary is shown was when Jesus was
preaching and she with her other sons had come to meet Him concern
that He had had been possessed, believing the people (she with her
sons went to the extent of disturbing Him in between His preaching
because of their concern). Here too Jesus upset with their
faithlessness showed this when He answered to a query saying his real
brother, sister and mother are those who keep His Word.
In the case of Jael, she was given this title because of what she had
done for her people, becoming a hero. For this a long song of full one
chapter (Judges 5) has been written praising her courage.
This is not to put Mary down but to bring the truth to you. Even today
my love for Mary is as much any other human honored in the Bible
(excluding Jesus of whom I am just crazy of). In fact I would be
dearer to her than any Catholic because I do not abuse her name or
blasphemy God using her name.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You came as man through the womb of a woman to fulfill
righteousness. Even though You were man yet You were without sin since
your conception was holy. Lord, open the eyes of those who are misled
by the evil one using the tricks of Jezebel. Lord, give courage to
your people to stand for the truth and not to fear man...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Exodus 20:4-6 (Second Commandment)
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of
any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or
that is in the water under the earth:
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the
LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers
upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that
hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my
commandments.
Luke 1:28, 41-56
28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art
highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of
Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the
Holy Ghost:
42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou
among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine
ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance
of those things which were told her from the Lord.
46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord,
47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
48 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for,
behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
Mark 3:28-35
28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of
men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never
forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
31 There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing
without, sent unto him, calling him.
32 And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold,
thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.
33 And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?
34 And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said,
Behold my mother and my brethren!
35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother,
and my sister, and mother.
Luke 11:27
27 And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of
the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the
womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked.
28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of
God, and keep it.
John 2:1-11
1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the
mother of Jesus was there:
2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.
3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They
have no wine.
4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour
is not yet come.
5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner
of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they
filled them up to the brim.
8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of
the feast. And they bare it.
9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made
wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the
water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good
wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou
hast kept the good wine until now.
11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and
manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
Luke 2:34-35
34 and Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold,
this child is set for the falling and the rising of many in Israel;
and for a sign which is spoken against;
35 yea and a sword shall pierce through thine own soul; that thoughts
out of many hearts may be revealed.
