Testing of the Rechabites
Jeremiah 35:1,2 - The word which came unto Jeremiah from the LORD in
the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king of Judah, saying, Go unto
the house of the Rechabites, and speak unto them, and bring them into
the house of the LORD, into one of the chambers, and give them wine to
drink.
The Lord one day put the Rechabite family to a test by making someone
offer them wine. Not only giving them wine but giving them wine by a
representative of the temple in the sacred place of the House of the
Lord.
The Rechabites were instructed by their fathers not to have wine along
with other things and they abided by them all through their lives
(please understand these were not contradictory to God's Word). So
when they were tempted with wine they bluntly refused and this pleased
God. The Lord made this an example to His people.
Even when a person who seem to represent the Lord gave them wine in a
place of worship they discerned what they were given. They did not see
the person who gave them nor where they were given; they did not allow
these things to over write their discernment.
The Lord latter tells His people if the Rechabites can obey their
fathers why do His people obey Him. The Lord, Who is our Heavenly
Father, is over and above all earthly relations and authority living
or dead. Are we going to listen to Him or to people who come as
religious people and give us things contradictory to our Father's Word
even if it is in a church? Are these things going to over write the
Truth?
Have we ever compared what people say in church with what our Father
says in the Word of God? Just by what they claim to be, what they wear
or where they stand does not give them authority over God.
God, Who is over and above all has lifted His Word above Him, so
anyone contradicting God's Word or changes it, is trying to show
authority over God. If God abides by His Word so who are we to
question it?
Discern what people say (who so ever they may be or who so ever they
may claim to be) with the Word of God and you will have eternal life.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, we thank You for the Word which instructs us to our
salvation. By You abiding to the Word and coming as flesh showed your
obedience to the Word. Even at the most difficult times You did
according the will of the Father which is His Word. Lord help your
people see that their life depends on the Word. If they do not live by
the Word or discern things by the Word they will become victims to
destruction...
This prayer we make in your Mighty Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Jeremiah 35:3-17
3 Then I took Jaazaniah the son of Jeremiah, the son of Habaziniah,
and his brethren, and all his sons, and the whole house of the
Rechabites;
4 And I brought them into the house of the LORD, into the chamber of
the sons of Hanan, the son of Igdaliah, a man of God, which was by the
chamber of the princes, which was above the chamber of Maaseiah the
son of Shallum, the keeper of the door:
5 And I set before the sons of the house of the Rechabites pots full
of wine, and cups, and I said unto them, Drink ye wine.
6 But they said, We will drink no wine: for Jonadab the son of Rechab
our father commanded us, saying, Ye shall drink no wine, neither ye,
nor your sons for ever:
7 Neither shall ye build house, nor sow seed, nor plant vineyard, nor
have any: but all your days ye shall dwell in tents; that ye may live
many days in the land where ye be strangers.
8 Thus have we obeyed the voice of Jonadab the son of Rechab our
father in all that he hath charged us, to drink no wine all our days,
we, our wives, our sons, nor our daughters;
9 Nor to build houses for us to dwell in: neither have we vineyard,
nor field, nor seed:
10 But we have dwelt in tents, and have obeyed, and done according to
all that Jonadab our father commanded us.
11 But it came to pass, when Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon came up
into the land, that we said, Come, and let us go to Jerusalem for fear
of the army of the Chaldeans, and for fear of the army of the Syrians:
so we dwell at Jerusalem.
12 Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying,
13 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Go and tell the
men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Will ye not receive
instruction to hearken to my words? saith the LORD.
14 The words of Jonadab the son of Rechab, that he commanded his sons
not to drink wine, are performed; for unto this day they drink none,
but obey their father€ ’²s commandment: notwithstanding I have spoken
unto you, rising early and speaking; but ye hearkened not unto me.
15 I have sent also unto you all my servants the prophets, rising up
early and sending them, saying, Return ye now every man from his evil
way, and amend your doings, and go not after other gods to serve them,
and ye shall dwell in the land which I have given to you and to your
fathers: but ye have not inclined your ear, nor hearkened unto me.
16 Because the sons of Jonadab the son of Rechab have performed the
commandment of their father, which he commanded them; but this people
hath not hearkened unto me:
17 Therefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel;
Behold, I will bring upon Judah and upon all the inhabitants of
Jerusalem all the evil that I have pronounced against them: because I
have spoken unto them, but they have not heard; and I have called unto
them, but they have not answered.

The boss does the work here

Matthew 20:26-28
26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great
among you, let him be your minister;
27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:
28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to
minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

In the Church of Jesus Christ authority and hierarchy are not
according to the world system. Although in both the responsibility is
the same but in the Church of which Jesus Christ laid the foundation
on Truth the way of working differs, the boss serves the servant.

When we understand the prime purpose of this system then everything is
very simple and easy to understand. The whole system is about help
each other receive their salvation in Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ His coming as man and by His sacrifice made available the
grace to save. To receive this grace we need to have faith. Crying,
praying or torturing etc. to oneself will not get the grace of Jesus
Christ, it is only by faith that we can receive grace. So the whole
system is all about build one’s faith and the nature of Christ in each
other. Faith is not build by just studying the Word. Since this Word
is a Living Word it needs to come alive in us. Thus the work that we
do towards each other is about helping each other live the Word by
which their faith increases and the nature of Christ develops.

The callings in Christ are as follow: Christ as Head, and then comes
Apostle, Prophet, Teacher (2 types), Evangelist (2 types),
Administrator (Pastor) and Healer (2 types). These callings are
related to the seven Spirits of the Holy Spirit. This system is also
manifested in the dress of the High Priest and the physical image in
which man is made.

If one looks from the top to the bottom, the person at the top enables
the persons below to function. Christ enables all, the Apostle enables
those below him, the Prophet those below him and likewise. Although
the reporting is from bottom to top, the authority from top to down.
Christ was and is always overall authority the head of this system,
the Apostle of those below him and the Prophet below him etc.

In short although the boss is the boss, yet he works to serve those
given unto him.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, your Word gives us instructions of the system designed by
You for your workers. Lord guide your workers of your vineyard in the
ways set by You so that they may bear good fruit and maximum harvest.
Let them not lose focus of the purpose they have been called in You...

This prayer we make in your mighty Name, Amen.


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

Exodus 28:1-39 (High Priest garments)

Ephesians 4:12-15
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry,
for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge
of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature
of the fulness of Christ:
14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and
carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and
cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all
things, which is the head, even Christ:

Flee Babylon

Jeremiah 51:6 - Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every
man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of
the LORD€ ’²S vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence.

People who are parents (especially fathers) will understand my
situation today. When they get the good news of that they will be
fathers, there is great joy and excitement. As their wives goes
through pregnancy stages they too go through a period of emotional ups
and downs (more ups and less downs), but the most difficult moment for
the father is when he is standing outside the delivery room. Even a
person of good faith like me to whom God had given a Word a few days
before delivery saying all will be fine; gets his faith tested outside
the delivery room. It is a battle of emotions verses faith.

Today my situation is the same. From the time I came into the Lord, I
knew about the coming of these days and was looking forward with
excitement but as it is at hand, it is a battle of emotions verses
faith. Here too, the Lord has already declared the result but we need
to overcome emotions and stick to faith so as to free ourselves of the
turmoil.

Today, let me be direct in my words.

I was born in a Roman Catholic family who were supposed to be a godly
family. I used the word 'supposed' because we were godly according to
the world, but according to God we hardly knew Him. We lived a good
moral life, like everyday family prayer (else no food was served -
although these prayers were just meaningless murmuring) and being good
unto others, donating money to the Church (especially dedicating
masses for the dead) etc. My family members, including myself were
closely connected to this church (excluding my father who was a Sunday
to Sunday out-standing Catholic / standing outside the Church during
mass). But the fact was none of us knew God or anything about Him.

One day when trouble knocked the doors of my family (my sister's
family) and shook our roots it was then that the outstanding person
was the only one who really showed faith in God. It was my father who
proved himself as a Christian and it was only due to him my family
came to know there is Living God. It was then that many of my family
members started building a relationship with God and some started even
working for the Lord. This was all about 18-20years back. Even though
we started thirsting for God we still did not know God much, but we
did see His power work.

It was only about 8years back when I came to know the Word of God that
I started building a relationship with the Lord and came to knowing
Him. It was after this that my eyes were opened and I came to know
what I was saved from.

During my previous days if someone spoke against the Catholic Church
or its belief I would take all arms and stand fourth before that
person. I would argue for hours in its favor even though I do not know
the Word. It was slowly by slowly the Lord started opening my eyes to
each of these misguided belief one by one that I started wondering
what is this church build on?

Almost everything that it does and believes in is all against the Word
of God (other than Jesus Christ is Lord - and that even Satan knows).
It keeps it people busy in traditions and activities which are at all
not related to God in any way (in fact most mock God). The people who
are in authority in this institute have themselves no relationship
with God and the irony to this is they do not trust His Word - the
very Word which gives life and of the very God they say they are
representatives of. They confuse people with selective human ideology,
history and theology and in many man words and the Theo (God) does not
exist in them.

I have many relatives and close family people who are priest or nuns
but never saw Christ in any of them (even though one heads a whole
congregation / sect). Many showed a manipulative nature unlike of
Christ. I wondered how these people could face themselves every
morning when they wake up and in the night before they slept.

The people who loved God and wanted to dedicate themselves to God were
put through a brain washing course of many years during which they
lost God, harden their hearts and became historians (that's the reason
their God is not a Living God and does not do healings or miracles). I
have spoken to a few who became priest and was surprised that they
even after spending more than 4 years studying the faith did not read
the Bible fully! What were they studying and what is their definition
of faith?

Their prayers are like nursery rhymes which people are made to narrate
senselessly (it was when the Lord told me to mediating on the words of
these prayers and compare it with the Word of God, that my eyes got
open).

Since ancient the Lord knew the great mischief that is going to be
played by this institute and warned this by many of His Prophets. The
unbelievers or even Satan worshipers are not given much importance in
scriptures as much as these deceivers are given.

When Jesus chose Simon the son of Jonas to take over the reins of
leading His disciples in His absence, He purposely kept his name
Peter. By this Jesus gave us the choice on which Church is to be build
on, is it going to be on the revelation inside Simon Peter or the name
Peter. When Jesus said 'this is the Rock on which I will build my
Church', He related to the revelation which Peter spoke and not
Peter's name. For foolish man does not realized the word 'Peter' does
not mean 'rock' but means 'pebble' and is the Greek equivalent for
'Tyrus' a Hebrew name associated with Satan(s)(the dragon is called
the king of Tyrus and the beast is called the prince of Tyrus).

Are you going to be associated with a church that is build on the name
Peter or on the revelation of the Truth which was in Peter?

This very church since centuries has stopped and being the cause for
the (spiritual / physical) death of many Men of God who wanted to
reveal the Truth of God.

For example the person in charge or evangelizing the world in Rome
(top 5 in hierarchy to the Pope) was the very person, who when was in
Mumbai stopped many people from evangelizing (the ministry I was in
was also a victim of this man). Many priest who were close to God and
were healing or delivering people from bondages were transferred to
remote places and rendered inactive by this very person directly or
indirectly. I knew him well and was waiting to get to have a personal
talk with him before he left for Rome, for he used to bow to false
Gods and to Hindu idols and was also suffering from severe diabetes
(in fact most of the priest of this church I came across suffer from
one or another serious sicknesses).

It is time that people of God wake up and get out of this institute
called Catholic Church. It has nothing to do with God and is
spiritually murdering the people of God. For example it does not truly
get its people baptized neither in water nor in the Holy Spirit and
deceives them by pouring water on infants and rubbing oil on them.
Realize this, if you are not truly baptized in water and the Holy
Spirit you are not going to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

In Scriptures the Babylon in Revelation and Jeremiah 51 is none other
than this church.

The Day of the Lord, the day the Lord is going to avenge his people by
letting lose His wrath on this church is at hand. Those who remain in
this church will be party to this wrath. The things which are in store
for it will give you the shivers.

I too had problems in the start getting out of this church especially
with many of my family members strongly rooted in it. But my love for
God was and is stronger than my emotional past had victory over it.

Open your eyes and see the mischief and flee from it. Trust the Lord,
He will take you and plant you in fertile soil.

When I came into light about 4-5 years back I started confronting
others from this Church. At that time the Lord told me very sternly to
be silent for it was by His grace and Spirit by which I came to
knowledge of this. Today the same Lord is telling me and you to openly
speak this out and warn those who are still in this church. If the
Lord convicts you forward this mail to all Catholics you know.

I pray the same grace of God and the Spirit be with the people of God
still in this institute and lead them to the truth.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You came as man not to start a religion or an institute.
You came to mend relationship between man and God. Your sacrifice on
the crucifix showed that You mend every area of this relationship.
Lord, we pray for your people who are deceived by Satan (the beast),
that their eyes open and their hearts are strengthened to take the
right decision in this right time...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
I can quote many, many scriptures but will highlight only the most
important, listing only the anchor scriptures pertaining to our
message.

Jeremiah 51:1-14
6 Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul:
be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD€ ’²S
vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence.
7 Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD€ ’²S hand, that made all
the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the
nations are mad.

Revelation 17:1 - 18:20
18:3-7
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her
fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication
with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the
abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my
people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not
of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her
iniquities.
6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double
according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her
double.
7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much
torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a
queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

Ezekiel 23:1-32
1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, there were two women, the daughters of one mother:
3 And they committed whoredoms in Egypt; they committed whoredoms in
their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised
the teats of their virginity.
4 And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her
sister: and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus
were their names; Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.

The two sisters come from one mother the Jewish church and Samaria
(meaning rocky mountain) being the church build on many truths not one
Truth. Aholah (means "her own tent" / adulteress with Assyria
(metaph) - Assyria means prosperity) and the Catholic church being
Jerusalem Aholibah (means "woman of the tent" / "adulterous wife").

Matthew 16:15-20
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? [Jesus was talking
not just to Peter but to all His Disciples]
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of
the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon
Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my
Father which is in heaven.
18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock
[Revelation of who Jesus is] I will build my church; and the gates of
hell shall not prevail against it.
19 And I will give unto thee [the Disciples] the keys of the kingdom
of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in
heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in
heaven.
20 Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he
was Jesus the Christ.

Peter was indeed chosen to lead in the absence of Jesus not in Matthew
16:18-19 but in Luke 24:12

Luke 24:12
12 Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down,
he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed,
wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.

Leviticus 16:23,32
23 And Aaron shall come into the tabernacle of the congregation, and
shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into
the holy place, and shall leave them there:
32 And the priest, whom he shall anoint, and whom he shall consecrate
to minister in the priest's office in his father's stead, shall make
the atonement, and shall put on the linen clothes, even the holy
garments:

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

Ezekiel 28
Prince of Tyrus and King of Tyrus

Overcome Adam first, to overcome this world

Matthew 19:21 - Jesus said unto him, If thou wouldest be perfect, go,
sell that which thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have
treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.

In this world man has been creating things and doing great wonders in
technology, science, infrastructure, architecture, art etc. When we
look behind we see from where to where man has reached and are amazed!

But when the truth is revealed to us by the Spirit of God; the whole
story changes. What we see now is the other side of the coin,
foolishness, vanity, rebellion etc. in all that man has been doing.

When God created man Adam in His image, he was a wonder and the great
thing is even at that time he was not perfect. When God created
creation at every stage when God created He said 'it is good' but when
God created man He stepped back and looking at all things and then
said 'it is good'.

In all creation of God created man was the only thing which was not
perfect, even though he was the only thing made in His image yet the
heart of man was not perfect. Man by eating the fruit of 'Good and
Bad' was looking for imperfection, the bad in other things.

God did not make man perfect because God wanted man to become perfect
and remain perfect forever. God knew man would fail the test and
therefore had written history before it happened. He made available
the Sacrifice even before man sinned and set things to bring man to
perfection.

The plan of God for man is even greater than what man had, is having
and would ever have. But to receive this man needs to overcome his
inner-man / heart. He needs to know that, all what God created is
perfect, he need to rely on God and not to rely on what man has
created. Things like money, shelter, food, security etc., man worries
about everyday but does not realize that all his needs have been
provided by God when He created this world. It is only due to sin man
has been struggling in this world and this creation is against him.
Now that the sacrifice has been made to handle sin, we need now
overcome that nature of Adam in us.

Man since long has been struggling against overcoming this world,
trying hard to given up pleasures of this world and failing every time
because the approach has been wrong.

For us now to overcome this world we need to first overcome our
thinking and our understanding. We need to get the Truth in us and
overcome the fruit 'Good and Bad' which Adam and Eve ate. We need to
overcome the 'Adam' in us first. If we manage to do that then we will
have no problems in overcoming this world or the pleasures of this
world. Sin will have no hold on us.

God also knew from the start that it will not be possible for man
alone to do this, so He made available His Spirit as a helper. The
Helper is the only One who will reveal the Truth to us and help us
overcome. This testimony of overcoming in man will then make man
perfect and maintain that perfectness forever.

With the help of the Helper we will surely not have problems like the
rich young man had, to whom Jesus spoke these words.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, You are an Awesome God. In your wisdom You created and set
all things perfect, by your Spirit You set all things right. You have
great inheritance for man but You want to make sure man is mature to
handle it. Lord by your Spirit make your children to sons, mature them
and glorify Yourself in them...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scripture]
Genesis 1:4, 10, 12, 17-18, 21, 25, 27-31
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light
from the darkness.
10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of
the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their
kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after
their kind: and God saw that it was good.
17 And God set them in the firmament of heaven to give light upon the earth,
18 and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the
light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.
21 And God created the great sea-monsters, and every living creature
that moveth, wherewith the waters swarmed, after their kind, and every
winged bird after its kind: and God saw that it was good.
25 And God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the
cattle after their kind, and everything that creepeth upon the ground
after its kind: and God saw that it was good.
27 And God created man in his own image, in the image of God created
he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them: and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and
multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion
over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over
every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed,
which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is
the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food:
30 and to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the heavens,
and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life,
I have given every green herb for food: and it was so.
31 And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very
good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

Genesis 5:1-2
1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God
created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their
name Adam, in the day when they were created.

Matthew 19:16-25
16 And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good
thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?
17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good
but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the
commandments.
18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder,
Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not
bear false witness,
19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy
neighbour as thyself.
20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my
youth up: what lack I yet?
21 Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that
thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in
heaven: and come and follow me.
22 But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful:
for he had great possessions.
23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a
rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.
24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through
the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of
God.
25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying,
Who then can be saved?

Revelation 12:11-12
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of
their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to
the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down
unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a
short time.

To MountZion - Page 43 Empty Re: To MountZion

Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended?

Proverbs 30:4 - Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who
hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a
garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his
name, and what is his son ’²s name, if thou canst tell?

This is one area where I have seen most of the Christians are totally
confused. The understanding of the different levels of Heaven, earth,
grave/sea and hell, and where does a soul/spirit go after death, when
does a person believing in Jesus Christ enter Heaven and why God said
not to speak to the dead.
People have taken man's word at face value without studying the
scriptures. It was only when I found there were discrepancies between
what was told to me and the scriptures that I enquired of the Lord on
this matter.
I would not like Paul boast, nor will I compare myself to Paul. But
like Paul was shown the levels of Heaven and creation as whole, so did
the Lord show the same to me. It is not that I visited Heaven or was
taken up in body. It is like the case of Daniel and John (Revelation),
who were explained scriptures which they were meditating on, in
visions using symbols.
It was only then that I became clear with this understanding I could
also see the deceit which Satan was playing by misguiding God's
people.
It was this understanding that explained me scriptures like Jesus not
letting Mary of Madeleine to touch Him just after resurrection but
latter allows Thomas to touch Him. Mary was one of the most loved by
Jesus; people who do not understand about Heavens fall into the trap
of Satan who points fingers on the character of Jesus and leads people
to lose their salvation.
Also we see that in the Old as well as New Testament when a (good or
believing) person died it is written he was gathered unto his people,
slept with his fathers or went to sleep (NT in case of Stephen who was
martyred).
If this matter is understood well many, many Christians will be
delivered from the misleading by the beast (dragon and the beast /
serpent and the young lion).
When you understand this you will also understand why Adam felt naked
after he sinned, and what is the meaning of transfiguration. Also what
working to one's salvation mean when it has already been given free by
the sacrifice of Jesus?
God calls His Word Manna because like Manna (which in Hebrew means
'what is it' and looked like a mustard seeds but tasted unlike it) man
has been seeing the Word as simple but yet not able to understand it.
It is only when man tastes the Word like he did with the Manna, does
man know there is a lot to understand of the Word and says What is
it?. Only then the Spirit of the Lord will reveal it to him.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, your wisdom is beyond man's understanding. You wrote your
Word and locked it, so that over the ages You will reveal it to man by
your Spirit. You gave us the Spirit of Truth, Who reveals your Word
unto us. O Holy Spirit open the minds of your people and deliver them
from the snares of the evil one...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference scriptures]
2 Corinthians 12:1-5
1 I must needs glory, though it is not expedient; but I will come to
visions and revelations of the Lord.
2 I know a man in Christ, fourteen years ago (whether in the body, I
know not; or whether out of the body, I know not; God knoweth), such a
one caught up even to the third heaven.
3 And I know such a man (whether in the body, or apart from the body,
I know not; God knoweth),
4 how that he was caught up into Paradise, and heard unspeakable
words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
5 On behalf of such a one will I glory: but on mine own behalf I will
not glory, save in my weaknesses.
John 20:16-18
16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turneth herself, and saith unto
him in Hebrew, Rabboni; which is to say, Teacher.
17 Jesus saith to her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended unto
the Father: but go unto my brethren, and say to them, I ascend unto my
Father and your Father, and my God and your God.
18 Mary Magdalene cometh and telleth the disciples, I have seen the
Lord; and that he had said these things unto her.
19 When therefore it was evening, on that day, the first day of the
week, and when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear
of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and saith unto them,
Peace be unto you.
20 And when he had said this, he showed unto them his hands and his
side. The disciples therefore were glad, when they saw the Lord.
John 20:24-27
24 But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them
when Jesus came.
25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the
Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print
of the nails, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.
26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas
with them. Jesus cometh, 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 see my
hands; and reach hither thy hand, and put it into my side: and be not
faithless, but believing.
Genesis 25:8
8 Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old
man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.
Numbers 20:23-24
23 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in mount Hor, by the coast
of the land of Edom, saying,
24 Aaron shall be gathered unto his people: for he shall not enter
into the land which I have given unto the children of Israel, because
ye rebelled against my word at the water of Meribah.
1 Kings 2:10
10 So David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David.
Acts 7:57-60; 8:1-2
57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and
ran upon him with one accord,
58 And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses
laid down their clothes at a young man€ ’²s feet, whose name was Saul.
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 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was
a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem; and
they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and
Samaria, except the apostles.
2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great
lamentation over him.
Daniel 12:9-10
9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and
sealed till the time of the end.
10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked
shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the
wise shall understand.
Luke 24:30-32
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?

<><

Pilate and Herod, men of authority
Luke 23:11,12 - And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and
mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to
Pilate. And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together:
for before they were at enmity between themselves.
If one goes through historic data about Herod, for instance the famous
historian Josephus who recorded the events during those periods in his
book 'Wars of Jews' projects Herod as a ruthless fighter, but at the
same time a cunning negotiator. Herod has to his credit to have ruled
for about 43years the very people who hated him, the Jews. Herod was
the high-priestly ruler for the areas compromising Galilee, Samaria,
Judea and Perea. If one reads the amazing things which Herod did to
survive, a person who love war would be impressed by him.
On the other hand Pontius Pilate who was a governmental representative
of imperial Rome during the time of Jesus was given the control over
Jerusalem. He too had a interesting background. He was the
illegitimate son of King Tyrus (term symbolically used for Satan - the
dragon / serpent). He had been sent to Rome as a hostage and things
turned around for him and he was put in authority. Been gone through
trials he had a softer heart but due to the fear of seeing the bad
days again, he did things he would have done without.
Just before Jesus was arrested these two rulers who were at logger
heads of each other and the Bible says they had patched up and became
friends. Now Pilate (who's surname / family name was Pontius) tried to
wash his hands off Jesus when He was bought to him. Although not being
a Christian he could not find any fault with Jesus. Herod being a
shrewd man was not really a friend of anyone but himself. To make
matters worse for Pilate and not to displease the Jews, he had his
soldiers mock Jesus and send Him back to Pilate.
As we all know latter Pilate first tried to negotiate his conscious by
first scourged Jesus and then tried to bail Him out using the festival
(Passover) release of a prisoner, but ultimately had to give in to the
demand of the crowd.
Why are we studying this historic data today?
This, the Lord has given us to understand the people of authority not
only of the world but those inside the so called church. The
background of Pilate and Herod gives the background of people in
church authority who sell / sacrifice God to keep their positions. Let
me explain further...
There was one time some boys who confronted a person David on his
belief. So David challenged them if it was Biblical they would need to
accept his belief or he would do accept theirs. Since they were not
Word rooted they took David to their priest. David knowing their
priest was comfortable with him. When David confronted the priest with
just 3 questions with a yes or no as an answer he was in a fix. He
first tried all the tricks to evade the questions be citing traditions
and emotional relationships. But when confronted further the first two
questions he answered with a no. But on the third he tapped David’s
head and front of all he openly confessed he had an authority above
him to whom he had to answer. From the boys who were there one
immediately got out of that church and the others followed latter.
Today these boys are greatly blessed in the Lord and going wonders
spiritually. That priest was symbolically like Pilate and it is
recorded Jesus suffered under Pontius Pilate not Herod. Herod tried to
stop the birth of Jesus, Pilate was instrument in His death.
This world hates Jesus Christ, even if it takes His Name, it does not
want to follow His teaching. So as please the world this church is
deceiving all by trying to eat the cake and also have it.
During the time of Jesus, Cesar ruled the people of God from Rome and
today too things have not changed much.
Let us open our eyes and see who we have made as authority over us?
Have we submitted ourselves to the Lord or to man who deceivingly is
taking His Name and misleading us having no relationship with God?
Do not go by emotions or what your eyes see but by the Word.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You warned man saying many would come in your Name but not
to believe them. You gave one way doe discern all things and that is
your Word. A person from You will keep your Word and the person not
from You will twist and turn your Word to deceive like Satan does.
Lord open the minds and the eyes of your people that they may see the
deceit which Satan is playing in your Name...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference scriptures]
Matthew 24:23-25
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is the Christ, or,
Here; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall
show great signs and wonders; so as to lead astray, if possible, even
the elect.
25 Behold, I have told you beforehand.
Matthew 7:19-23
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and
cast into the fire.
20 Therefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
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 who is in
heaven [the Word is the will of the Father].
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy
by thy name, and by thy name cast out demons, and by thy name do many
mighty works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from
me, ye that work iniquity.
Acts 4:26-30
26 The kings of the earth set themselves in array, And the rulers
were gathered together, Against the Lord, and against his Anointed:
27 for of a truth in this city against thy holy Servant Jesus, whom
thou didst anoint, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles
and the peoples of Israel, were gathered together,
28 to do whatsoever thy hand and thy council foreordained to come to pass.
29 And now, Lord, look upon their threatenings: and grant unto thy
servants to speak thy word with all boldness,
30 while thy stretchest forth thy hand to heal; and that signs and
wonders may be done through the name of thy holy Servant Jesus.

Honey and milk

Songs of Solomon 4:11 - Thy lips, O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb
[flowing honey]: honey and milk are under thy tongue; and the smell of
thy garments is like the smell of Lebanon.
In my previous mails I explained how the words (spoken) are like
flowers and when we pollinate them (meditate on them) they bear fruit.
If the words are good then they will bear good fruit but if the words
are negative then they bear poisonous fruits.
If one understands honey, it is the extract from sweet smelling
flowers. Symbolically honey which the Lord is speaking of represents
the understanding of the Truth.
If one studies the properties of honey one would be amazed to know
that if one does not adulterate honey then they last for years and
years tasting as good as fresh. There are records that honey found in
Egyptians tombs was so fresh that they could be eaten right away.
Milk as we know is the nourishment that we get from the mother (man or
animal). There is no substitute which can help build immunity in a
child other than its mother's milk. It represents blessings. Israel
had always been saved from complete annihilation many a times because
of the blessings of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob which was on them.
When we believe in Jesus Christ by faith we become children of Abraham
and the blessings of Abraham is on us. So faith is the most important
ingredient for our blessings. It is faith that helps us receive or
faithlessness that keeps away our blessings.
Coming to Lebanon the word in Hebrew means 'whiteness' which
symbolizes 'righteousness'.
The word sister written in the scripture above does not really mean a
sister. It is an irregular female noun used for brother.
Songs of Solomon 4:10
10 How fair <03302> (8804) is thy love <01730>, my sister <0269>, my
spouse < 03618>! how much better <02895> (8804) is thy love <01730>
than wine < 03196>! and the smell <07381> of thine ointments <08081>
than all spices < 01314>!
Without getting too complicated or deep and keeping things simple; if
we need to experience righteousness we need to have the understanding
of the Word and by faith the blessings of the Lord on us.

[Prayers Starter]
Lord, You promised your people a land of milk and honey. Lord your
Kingdom is not only in Heaven but even on earth when your children are
present. Lord, feed your people the honey and by building their faith
give them milk...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference scriptures]
Exodus 3:16-17
16 Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them,
The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of
Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen
that which is done to you in Egypt:
17 And I have said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of
Egypt unto the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the
Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, unto
a land flowing with milk and honey.
Proverbs 18:21
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love
it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Measuring the Temple

Ezekiel 42:19 - He turned about to the west side, and measured five
hundred reeds with the measuring reed.

In SavedByFaith.info although I do send some hard / strong teachings
but these are primarily baby food, since they are mostly Gospel. They
are like porridge in which taste, texture and hardness are gradually
added to build the child.

Please understand giving the Gospel does not mean given the Word.
Gospel in Greek 'euaggelion' or 'euaggelizo' means good tiding or good
news. It is basically like headlines / intro to the main news.

The Gospel in short is - The promise of God became flesh and has been
fulfilled; now the hope of salvation is at hand, only if we believe
and accept Him.

When Jesus after resurrection was training Peter to handle His people,
besides cancelling the denials of Peter Jesus gave him perfect
instructions on this matter.

Jesus told him 3 things (John 21:15-17)
1) Feed my lambs
2) Tend my sheep
3) Feed my sheep

If one reflects on this feeding the lamb means giving the Gospel. When
the person accepts the Gospel the person starts maturing and the
person's life goes through a great turmoil; the Gospel starts working
inside and around. At this time the Lord instructs us not to feed but
to take care. At this time love, gentleness, support etc. are more
important than hitting the person on the head with a Bible. It is
after this stage we need to start teaching the real Word.

Most of the real Word teaching I do only on my other website.

While I was writing one such teaching 'The Heart' on the inner man
which we also call soul, the Lord was revealing me amazing things.
Like our body has a form and parts, so also our soul has a body having
5 parts with specific roles and the relationship between each other.

The books of Moses the Pentateuch / Torah were orchestrated by the
Lord into these 5 books in a specific format. Even the books of Psalms
were originally in 5 books, each called according to the books of
Moses. The orders, in which the Psalms are put, are in order to the
books of Moses.

Book I (Psalms 1-41) called Psalms the Genesis Book
Book II (Psalms 42-72) called Psalms the Exodus book
Book III (Psalms 73-89) called Psalms the Leviticus book
Book IV (Psalms 90-106) called Psalms the Numbers book
Book V (Psalms 107-150) called Psalms the Deuteronomy book

This is the reason why the first Psalm of David is somewhere in the
middle and so also is the Psalm of Moses.

God by His wisdom did this to show us the importance He gave to make
us understand our inner man.

When I finished written the third part on The Heart I thought it was
all over because these revelations swept me off my feet. When I sat
down after writing I was given the chapter of today's scripture
(Chapters 41 & 42) measuring of the temple. Then I realized it is not
over, there is more to come. Today I am writing on the fourth part of
the Heart / Inner Man and I have no words to say.

It is just over the imagination of man as to the way God has created
us. What we see physically is just the tip of the iceberg. We call man
God's wonder creation looking at what we see, imagine what will happen
to us when we really know the whole, we will be on all fours before
God. What Jesus did like walking on water or transfiguration was not
to show off but to give us a demo of what God has created. For Jesus
said we will do far greater things.

Our inner man is much more than our physical body, if we take so much
care daily of our physical body how much should we be caring for our
inner man. We say God is in us when we see the glory of God manifest
externally but this glory comes when it is there in our inner man /
soul / heart.

If we do not see the glory of God in us, it is time we wake up and
taking a measuring instrument and measure our inner man to see if it
measures up to the instructions of God.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are an Awesome God. Your wisdom is beyond measures. To let
the world know You; You created us in your image. Lord, we pray that
man really understand himself and gives glory to You. Lord let them
know how important it is to keep our hearts clean and to measure. It
is only when we do this will we come to know You...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
1 Corinthians 3:16-20
16 Know ye not that ye are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of
God dwelleth in you?
17 If any man destroyeth the temple of God, him shall God destroy;
for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man thinketh that he is wise
among you in this world, let him become a fool, that he may become
wise.
19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is
written, He that taketh the wise in their craftiness:
20 and again, The Lord knoweth the reasonings of the wise, that they are vain.

1 Corinthians 6:15-20
15 Know ye not that your bodies are members of Christ? shall I then
take away the members of Christ, and make them members of a harlot?
God forbid.
16 Or know ye not that he that is joined to a harlot is one body?
for, The twain, saith he, shall become one flesh.
17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body;
but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
19 Or know ye not that your body is a temple of the Holy Ghost which
is in you, which ye have from God? and ye are not your own;
20 for ye were bought with a price: glorify God therefore in your body.

John 21:15-17
15 So when they had broken their fast, Jesus saith to Simon Peter,
Simon, son of John, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him,
Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my
lambs.
16 He saith to him again a second time, Simon, son of John, lovest
thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.
He saith unto him, Tend my sheep.
17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of John, lovest thou
me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest
thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou
knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

John 14:12
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works
that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do;
because I go unto my Father.

The time of battle and wonders is here
1 Chronicles 20:1 - And it came to pass, that after the year was
expired, at the time that kings go out to battle, Joab led forth the
power of the army, and wasted the country of the children of Ammon,
and came and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried at Jerusalem. And Joab
smote Rabbah, and destroyed it.
We read in the records of Chronicles as in today's scripture that the
kings would not mindlessly attack each other any time. We read that
there were periods (not season based but over a number of years) that
the kings would go out in battle against each other.
To understand this in-depth we need help from a field of Bible study
which is an Archeological / Historical Bible study. Since we are on
this matter; one of the greatest persons in this field in our times
Dr. Ron Charles is coming to India in Nov. 2nd week 2010 for a youth
revival program. He does visit India once every year teaching the
Bible and proving it technically. I have some of his disclosures on
video which are just awesome and hope to broadcast them on TV and will
also have them on Youtube. I am leaving with the team as soon as I
finish this mail to a place in remote Maharastra where we are
expecting to organize this event. We are praying for about 75,000
youth to attend.
In time, we have seen certain period of great spiritual activity and
periods of dullness. Even in the Old Testament there were periods when
many Men of God existed and great miracles toke place and then there
were periods of dullness. It was the period of dullness which was the
testing times. These were the times when people would have to
encourage themselves with the miracles and wonders which happened
during the period of wonders and walk accordingly.
Since long we were in the period of dullness and since past 4-5 years
we are walking into a period of great wonders (spiritual war). I
always thank God that I was born during this fading of one and coming
of the other. In the dull time I got to build my faith and now I get
to put it in action.
Are you too ready for the action? There are battles being fought
everywhere throughout the world. If you think you will sit at home and
witness. Sorry.
Either you go out in to the battle or else the battle will come to
you. You cannot be a witness and be passive. For a conquering army, it
is better to go into battle and defeat the enemy in their own land
than to wait for the enemy to come to your house and then to defeat
the enemy.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, when You were training your disciples You build them and
even send them on test mission before sending them in the actual war
field. They were lead in the test mission by just your Word and in the
real battle field by also your Spirit. Lord we pray for all your
soldiers who are sitting at home and not going out into the battle
field, Lord by your Word and your Spirit guide them and reinforce them
with power and might...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Mark 6:7-13
7 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by
two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
8 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey,
save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:
9 But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.
10 And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an
house, there abide till ye depart from that place.
11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart
thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against
them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and
Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
12 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.
13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that
were sick, and healed them.

Acts 2:1-6, 12-14, 40-43
1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with
one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty
wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it
sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak
with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every
nation under heaven.
6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and
were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own
language.
12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to
another, What meaneth this?
13 Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.
14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and
said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem,
be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save
yourselves from this untoward generation.
41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the
same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles€ ’² doctrine and
fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were
done by the apostles.

He is searching with candlelight among His people

The book of Zephaniah

As today's message we are told to look at the overall message of the
Prophet Zephaniah.

Zephaniah is considered a junior Jeremiah, but even though he is not
well known as Jeremiah or some of the other Prophets, yet Zephaniah
had a very specific mission. Zephaniah's mission was to ring the
bells, in short to warn.

In his book other than warning the enemies of the people of God, he
also warns the people of God. This message is continually inline to
the messages we have been getting through this year.

One of the anchor scriptures from the book of Zephaniah which is of
great important to us and also very relevant to our time is Chapter
1:11-12

Zephaniah 1:11-12
11 Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all the merchant people are
cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off.
12 And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search
Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their
lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will
he do evil.

The word Maktesh means 'deep hollow' which refers to the people who
are spiritually hollow. They are the religious people who are without
God or void of any relationship with God. They call themselves
representatives of the Lord but far from know Him; in fact the Lord
Himself does not recognize them. These people have made God / religion
a business since people of Maktesh were people of trade.

The Lord says in the same scriptures; as He is dealing with them He
will also search among His people with candles. This metaphor is
enough to us to wake up and get our house in order. What you show unto
others is of no good, what is inside will soon be exposed.

So people of God the time is come for us to change, either be warm or
be cold but do not be lukewarm, the Lord will deal with you right
away. It is time the world comes to know God and with Christians being
lukewarm the world will never know God. So either, reject Christ and
be a unbeliever and enjoy this physical world till it exist (after
that life is going to be bad), else truly accept Christ into your life
by living Him and enjoy life eternally; in this world (satisfied) an
beyond in Heaven (in fullness). But doing neither one of them which
means calling oneself a Christ and not knowing Christ or living Him is
going to be bad here and worst latter.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, it is time for the world to know You and to experience your
glory, and this can happen only through your people. Lord we pray for
your people that your grace be upon their hearts, that they do not
harden it but that they surrender unto You and your will. That they
reflect You as a Living, Almighty and the Only One God...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]

Zephainiah 1:1-6
1 The word of the LORD which came unto Zephaniah the son of Cushi,
the son of Gedaliah, the son of Amariah, the son of Hizkiah, in the
days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah.
2 I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the LORD.
3 I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the
heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumblingblocks with the
wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD.
4 I will also stretch out mine hand upon Judah, and upon all the
inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off the remnant of Baal from
this place, and the name of the Chemarims with the priests;
5 And them that worship the host of heaven upon the housetops; and
them that worship and that swear by the LORD, and that swear by
Malcham;
6 And them that are turned back from the LORD; and those that have
not sought the LORD, nor enquired for him.

Zephaniah 2:1-3
1 Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired;
2 Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff,
before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of
the LORD'S anger come upon you.
3 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his
judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid
in the day of the LORD’S anger.

Zephaniah 3:1-9
1 Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city!
2 She obeyed not the voice; she received not correction; she trusted
not in the LORD; she drew not near to her God.
3 Her princes within her are roaring lions; her judges are evening
wolves; they gnaw not the bones till the morrow.
4 Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have
polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law.
5 The just LORD is in the midst thereof; he will not do iniquity:
every morning doth he bring his judgment to light, he faileth not; but
the unjust knoweth no shame.
6 I have cut off the nations: their towers are desolate; I made their
streets waste, that none passeth by: their cities are destroyed, so
that there is no man, that there is none inhabitant.
7 I said, Surely thou wilt fear me, thou wilt receive instruction; so
their dwelling should not be cut off, howsoever I punished them: but
they rose early, and corrupted all their doings.
8 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I
rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations,
that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation,
even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the
fire of my jealousy.
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.

Dreams, Visions or the Word

Jeremiah 23:28 - The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream;
and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully [in truth].
What is the chaff [hay] to the wheat? saith the LORD.

When Jesus had to teach about the Kingdom of God He used the words
wheat / corn, interestingly the Hebrew word wheat / corn comes from
the root word 'pure' or 'chosen'. In one parable He even compares the
redeemed children of God as seeds. Here too the Lord is symbolizing
His Word / His redeemed children to wheat / corn in sense of purity.

Coming to the dreams, one may say did not the Lord give the Word
through His chosen ones mostly through dreams? Then why is He
comparing dreams to chaff?

Understand the Lord is saying dreams or Word. When He used the term
Word it includes everything that makes the Word including the dreams
given by Him for the salvation of mankind.

In this scripture the term dream refers to those dreams which are not the Word.

The Word of God required for the salvation of mankind was completed by Jesus.

Whatever dreams or visions we get even those from the Lord cannot be
contradictory to the Word. Those which contradict are from the evil
one or our carnal mind. These dreams are like chaff which is feed for
His livestock. We are called the flock of the Shepherd and these
visions are basically to build, help, guide, nourish us and they
cannot be compared to the seeds (wheat / corn).

So having dreams or visions coming from the Lord is of help but
without the Word in us we will not be able to discern them and may
fall in a pit. Therefore the Word in us is more important than dreams
and visions.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, You gave man the Word so has to instruct and guide man to
his salvation which is You. You came in the flesh and completed the
Word. Lord we pray that we have more and more of this Seeds in us and
that they come to life in us. Make us like fertile soil so that your
Seeds multiple and spread unto others...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 13:3-9
3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a
sower went forth to sow;
4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls
came and devoured them up:
5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and
forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had
no root, they withered away.
7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an
hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Luke 21:37-38; 22:1-2
37 And in the day time he was teaching in the temple; and at night he
went out, and abode in the mount that is called the mount of Olives.
38 And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple,
for to hear him.
1 Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the
Passover [but was not the real Passover].
2 And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him;
for they feared the people.

To MountZion - Page 43 Empty Managers of the mysteries of God

Post  Admin on Fri 07 May 2010, 8:34 pm

Managers of the mysteries of God
1 Corinthians 4:1 - Let a man so account [think] of us, as of the
ministers [servants/subordinates] of Christ, and stewards [managers of
household] of the mysteries of God.
Since many years I have tried explaining to many about our
relationship with Jesus as regards to being a friend but very few have
understood.
Our relationship with Jesus Christ other than He being our Savior, He
is our Brother and Chief Associate. The Greek word 'philos',<5384>
translated as 'friend' also means 'associate'.
Why should I take the term 'associate' and not 'friend'?
The term associate should be taken because the context John 15:13-16
speaks of business; the Father's business. A friend is not related to
business but an associate is related. A person does not discuss
business matters with friends but does so with associates.
Even when the Lord used the word translated as 'friend' for Abraham,
it actually means 'love'. Abraham was most loved by the Lord and was
also the first associate chosen by God and instrument to institute the
first Church (congregation of believers).
If one really understands the relationship 'friend'; calling Jesus a
friend means rejecting Him as a brother and associate.
A blood relationship is unbreakable, unlike a friend relationship. A
friend relationship is of choice but our relationship not by choice
but by birthright of being children of God. We did not choose God but
were born children of God. It is because we were born children of God
the Lord came to save us even before we knew Him.
A brother and a friend do not go along. A friend relationship is
worldly acquaintance or compatibility of two people not related to one
another. But since this world does not know true relationship of a
brother, father, mother or sister; they give a friend relationship
more value than a blood relationship.
Coming to the business of a servant or subordinate of Christ; the
prime business of this association is to grow fruit(s) and to manage
mysteries.
What fruit we grow is the Fruit(s) of the Holy Spirit and the
mysteries we manage are those of the Kingdom of Heaven.
The land where we grow the Fruit is within ourselves and the people of God.
Concerning the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, it says to manage
not to distribute recklessly. We are told to know with whom, how, when
and where we should share the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. These
mysteries of great value (like pearls) and therefore cannot be given
to people who do not know the value of pearls (i.e. pigs).
I call on all the brother (including sisters) associates of Christ,
working under Christ, carrying the Name and having authority in
Christ, reaping a harvest for Christ and spreading this association
all through this world, to concentrate mainly on the two most
important aspects of the business Fruit(s) and Mysteries.
The real Fruit grower is the Holy Spirit and the Mystery revealer is
also Him, so He is the one we need to closely work with.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You called us brothers and sisters because You build our
relationship by your blood. You being the Head lead this association
of which You make us a part of. Lord, we pray that your servants know
the authority they carry as members of this association headed by
their Brother. Help them know the profitability they harvest in Heaven
in their account while working in this association. Lord we pray that
more and more join and work dedicatedly for this association and
spread it throughout this world, so that You come in glory...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference scriptures]
John 15:13-16
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life
for his friends[associate].
14 Ye are my friends [associate], if ye do whatsoever I command you.
15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not
what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends[associate]; for all
things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.
16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you,
that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should
remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may
give it you.
Isaiah 4:8
8 But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the
seed of Abraham my friend [ahab <0157> - love].
James 2:23
23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God,
and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the
Friend [first associate] of God.

The (extra) wise Christian
Jeremiah 8:8 - How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is
with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is
in vain. The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo,
they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?
The Lord is talking today directly to Christians among us who think
themselves to be more wise than the Lord. First they question the Word
of God saying isn't it written by man and put together by man? The
first thing they claim is wasn't it the Church which put the books of
the Word of God together? Therefore they manipulate the Word of God as
if they are the true authors and are greater than God.
The Lord exposes these very people by showing us by the insane things
they do. The Lord says 'they take the bones of the kings of Judah, and
the bones of his princes, and the bones of the priests, and the bones
of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of
their graves; and they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon,
and all the host of heaven, which they have loved, and which they have
served, and after which they have walked, and which they have sought,
and which they have worshipped:'
The Lord is not talking of what the Israelites used to do but what
these extra wise Christians do even today.
Understand, in the Bible the bones represent the nature of the person.
The bones of Jesus were not allowed to be broken because in nature He
was perfect.
These Christians take their dead and roam with them all their lives
glorifying them even more than they do to God. Since they roam with
the dead they themselves are spiritually dead. They perverse
themselves in traditions, which re of pagan and occult roots, doing
the things of Satan while calling themselves as children of God. They
try to show their wisdom questioning the ways of the believers (other
Christians), as to what they wear what and what they do but they never
even look at themselves in a mirror and see their own nakedness.
The Lord says due to this behavior He brings and will bring calamities
and persecutions of great proportions against them. It is time for
them to wake up and change or else things are going to get worst for
them.
If one reads scriptures, the Lord says the things which He has in
store for these wise Christians and Churches which are not rooted in
His Word is quite dreadful. If you track the earthquakes and disasters
since these few years, all are in countries where these wise
Christians rule.
If you are still among them, open your eyes and get out from among
them or else stay and partake of what the Lord has in store for them.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, Your saints have been persecuted and suffered since long by
this institute. Their souls cry out for justice from the graves. Lord,
You are a patient God, Who slow to anger, but the earth trembles when
You vent your anger. Lord, we prayer as You vent your justice on this
institute let not even one soul of your children be crushed. Harden
not the hearts of your children but let your grace and mercy be
abundant on them. By your Spirit and favor deliver them...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Jeremiah 8:1-6
1 At that time, saith Jehovah, they shall bring out the bones of the
kings of Judah, and the bones of his princes, and the bones of the
priests, and the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the
inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of their graves;
2 and they shall spread them before the sun, and the moon, and all
the host of heaven, which they have loved, and which they have served,
and after which they have walked, and which they have sought, and
which they have worshipped: they shall not be gathered, nor be buried,
they shall be for dung upon the face of the earth.
3 And death shall be chosen rather than life by all the residue that
remain of this evil family, that remain in all the places whither I
have driven them, saith Jehovah of hosts.
4 Moreover thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith Jehovah: Shall men
fall, and not rise up again? Shall one turn away, and not return?
5 Why then is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual
backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return.
6 I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright: no man repenteth
him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turneth to
his course, as a horse that rusheth headlong in the battle.

To MountZion - Page 43 Empty Re: To MountZion

Post  Admin on Mon 03 May 2010, 11:28 am

Do you have an altar?

1 Samuel 7:17 - And his return was to Ramah; for there was his house;
and there he judged Israel; and there he built an altar unto the LORD.

In our times people are taught that altar is a place where the Lord is
worshipped. In certain Christian Churches we see a lot of importance
is given to the altar. Which is a raised platform (table) on which
they offer service and keep the things connected with the service.

In the Old Testament the people worshiped the Lord at two places one
was a raised platform on which the sacrifices was (slaughtered)
offered. And the second was a monument like a stone or a pillar. The
Hebrew word translated as 'altar' comes from the root word 'place of
slaughter' or 'sacrifice' to God / god.

Taking the monument factor first: - Many of the places in the Old
Testament Men of God made monument altars. These were either as a
memorial of a promise or a memorial of a great blessing of God. They
put up rock or a pillar primarily to remind they of the Lord will do
or what the Lord had done. They worshiped the Lord at it but did not
worship the stone or pillar.

We too need altars or memorials and one of the greatest memorials is
Jesus Christ - Son of God. When we look at Him it is a promise that
the Lord will make us like Him. We too will one day become Sons of God
like Him.

I too have a memorial altar in my house. It is not a place I worship
at but is made as a reminder of a promise which the Lord had given me.
Whenever I look at this monument it encouraged me and reenergizes me
in my work in the Lord, for it refreshes the promise and I worship the
Lord for it.

The sacrifice platform factor: - In the Old Testament sacrifices were
made on altars which were raised platforms but in the New Testament
one will not read any things as an altar. The only altar one reads of
the hearts of people on which the sacrifice of praise is offered.

Can we offer any other sacrifice? No.

Because Jesus became the eternal sacrifice, a sacrifice offered once
for all. When we break bread, we are not offering anything but doing
it in remembrance of the sacrifice offered. We also receive the
sacrifice offered by Jesus but are not offering any sacrifice. If we
are not offering any sacrifice can we have an altar?

We can have a table which we can use for service but we cannot call it
an altar. If we do so we are rejecting the sacrifice which Jesus made.
Even in the Old Testament the Lord was very angry against making high
altars. Everything and anything associated with the Lord and His
statutes should be meaningful and with a purpose, we are not allowed
to do as we wish or feel.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, through your Word You teach us of Heavenly things. In your
Word in Old Testament You symbolically put the functions of an altar
by raised platforms, in the New Testament You showed that this alter
is not made of stones or precious metals but of flesh and bones; the
altar being our bodies. When we have the Testimony of Jesus Christ in
us we become a living altar and the only thing we can offer on this
altar is a sacrifice of praise. Lord we pray that we keep this true
altar holy and sanctified...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Acts 17:22-29
22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of
Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar
with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye
ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is
Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
25 Neither is worshipped with men€ ’²s hands, as though he needed any
thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all
the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed,
and the bounds of their habitation;
27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after
him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also
of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to
think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven
by art and man's device.

Hebrew 13:10-16
10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve
the tabernacle.
11 For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the
sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp.
12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his
own blood, suffered without the gate.
13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.
14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.
15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God
continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such
sacrifices God is well pleased.

Run from the bushes and weeds

Job 30:7,8 - Among the bushes they brayed [cry out]; under the nettles
[weeds] they were gathered together. They were children of fools, yea,
children of base men: they were viler than the earth.

Job was talking about the people who were mocking him; today the Lord
has given us the words of Job as a message.

Today the Lord by the words of Job is teaching us to understand
certain Christians. The Lord says they are like those who cry out /
make a loud noise among bushes and gather under weeds.

Let us understand bushes; it is a term used for shrubs and also as a
descriptive term for undeveloped land. Coming to scrubs, it is a plant
that is short in stature and hardly grows fruits; one of the most
common fruit it grows is berries. Berries are very, very small and
hardly anything that satisfies man. For a man to be satisfied he
requires many, many berries. Another thing to note is among the most
poisonous fruits, are berries. It is very difficult for a lay person
to identify between poisonous and non-poisonous berries, only a
trained eye or experienced person can identify between them.

Coming to weeds; in the Bible weeds are identified as worldly
knowledge and understanding in spiritual areas. What the worldly man
says about God and His Kingdom are like weeds are like weeds if
present among fruitful plants, will eat into the nourishment of the
plant a even destroy the plant, but a tree they will have least effect
on.

The Lord says to us those who gather under bushes and weeds are
children of fools, which means fools themselves, although not fully.
They may act innocent but cannot deny the accusation of being fools,
for they willingly go where they go.

Ask yourself these few questions:-

If you go to a congregation ask yourself why?
Is it because your ancestors went, so you too are continuing?
Has that congregation helped you grow in faith? Or do they just keep
you busy with useless activities, meaningless prayers and traditions?
Or are these things not useless but like poisonous berries which are
slowly killing your spirit by hardening your heart and blinding your
eyes?
Has the congregation helped you network with the others in the
congregation as a body and helped the body prosper in all areas of
life; body, mind and spirit?


These are just a few questions I raise but sufficient for you to give
serious thought and find the answer. If you are among them who gather
among bushes and weeds and still want to continue then the Lord says
that you are made for this world and will perish worst than the people
of this world will at the end.

If you do not want to perish with the world on the Judgment day and
want to live eternally with the Lord then get up and start running far
from that congregation, do not even turn back and look. If you do then
you will be like Lots wife will start thinking of the things and
relations left behind and get caught in the judgment vent out to this
congregation.

When the Lord opened my eyes it took me nearly one year to find a good
congregation to settle down but I did not give up or decide to return
back. Have faith the Lord will plant you in good soil. The testimony
of Manish and Roslian which I sent some days back was after they too
left the bushes and weeds.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You made us not to perish with this world but to prosper and to
inherit in You. Lord, the evil one does not want us to receive what
You have set for us and thus deceives and confuses your children to
become victims of slaughter. Lord, work in the hearts of your children
and open their eyes to see the deceit of the wolf, give them the
courage and grace to make the right decision...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 1:17
17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen
generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are
fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto
Christ are fourteen generations.

Revelation 14:6-12
6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the
everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to
every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the
hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and
earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is
fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the
wine of the wrath of her fornication.
9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any
man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his
forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is
poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he
shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy
angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and
they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image,
and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the
commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Revelations 17:14-18; 18:1-5
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome
them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are
with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the
whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall
hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat
her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree,
and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be
fulfilled.
18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth
over the kings of the earth.
1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven,
having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the
great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils,
and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and
hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her
fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication
with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the
abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my
people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not
of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her
iniquities.

Discern Jericho and do not worship him (Satan).

1 Chronicles 1:50,51 - And when Baalhanan was dead, Hadad reigned in
his stead: and the name of his city was Pai; and his wife€ ’²s name was
Mehetabel, the daughter of Matred, the daughter of Mezahab. Hadad died
also. And the dukes of Edom were; duke Timnah, duke Aliah, duke
Jetheth,

Today's message the Lord wants us to learn from the mistakes of the
Edomites. The Edomites were descendents of Esau, they were later known
as Arabs.

During those times they used to worship Satan and evil spirits in form
of gods. History talks of they having not less than 360 gods. Their
main gods were Molech / Moleck (mans in Hebrew 'king') and his son
Baal (in Hebrew means 'master', 'husband' or 'owner').

If you notice these are the same references which are used with the
Lord Jesus Christ. Let us study further on this.

Among the other generations which worshiped these gods were the
Moabites and the Hittites. It will amaze you that both were to do with
Jericho. One lived in the valley of Jericho before the river Jordan
and the other in the city of Jericho beyond the river Jordan. Another
thing which will amaze you is that the meaning of Jericho in Hebrew is
'moon'.

Concerning the first - the Moabs, Moses was instructed by the Lord not
to confront them in the start. The Moabs were given sufficient time
and warning in between after which the Lord asked the Israelites (time
of King Saul) to completely destroy every being from man to woman to
child, even the livestock (although Saul disobeyed and spared the
women, children and livestock). This was instructed by the Lord for
us to discern the spiritual symbolism of Moabs and how to deal with
them (fallen angels).

Concerning the second - the Hittites they were the descendents of Ham
/ Heth who were descendents of Cain. As we know Cain tried to please
the Lord by offering a sacrifice the works of his hands which was
rejected by the Lord so also are the people of today who are people of
today who are trying to please God with the works of their hands as a
sacrifice. The Hittites were so evil in their ways that the Lord asked
Joshua to utterly destroy Jericho and its inhabitants. This city was
protected by a great wall which in history was impregnable for an army
like the Israelites. But the Lord instructed them to take six rounds
around it in silence but of the seventh round to shout and the wall
tumbled down. Seven is to do with the Lord and implies here as the Day
of the Lord.

Now that the Day of the Lord (the day the Lord takes revenge for His
people) is at hand and the trumpets are being blown, let us too shout
unto the walls of Jericho and it will all come down (does not mean to
physically shout but to spiritually shout - in Tongues).

The time is come for Jericho to be bought down and those led by
Jericho also to be bought down.

This Jericho is not only to do with another religion, but also among
Christians there are many who are deceived and associated with Jericho
and its gods. They think they worship Christ but are deceived by man
to worship the moon which symbolizes man of God. There are many
Christians who bow down, adore, worship man. There may not be any
problem with that person but what they do in that person€ ’²s name is the
problem.

It will amaze you that Jesus knew of this before hand and as a warning
had also named these people (whose names would be misused) with name
which were not good. Just study the names of these people and you are
in for a surprise. Jesus was not changing people names for pleasure,
nor had people with specific name around him by coincidence.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ just do not do anything because
someone has told you even if it is your own ancestors, they are not
above God. You need to discern everything with the Word of God and by
the Spirit of God. Do not land up in Jericho worshiping its gods.



[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, all through the Bible, You have been waning man of the ways
of the evil one. It is only when your Spirit - the Spirit of Truth was
and is with man that we have been able to understand. Lord by your
Spirit open our minds and let your Light shine in all those who are
deceived by the evil one, those who call themselves Christians and
those who do not...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Numbers 22:1
1 And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in the plains
of Moab on this side Jordan by Jericho.

Joshua 6:1-5. 10-21
1 Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel:
none went out, and none came in.
2 And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand
Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour.
3 And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round
about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days.
4 And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams'
horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and
the priests shall blow with the trumpets.
5 And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with
the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the
people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall
fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight
before him.
10 And Joshua had commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not shout,
nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any word proceed out
of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye shout.
11 So the ark of the LORD compassed the city, going about it once:
and they came into the camp, and lodged in the camp.
12 And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the
ark of the LORD.
13 And seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams' horns before the
ark of the LORD went on continually, and blew with the trumpets: and
the armed men went before them; but the rereward came after the ark of
the LORD, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets.
14 And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned into
the camp: so they did six days.
15 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about
the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner
seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times.
16 And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew
with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the LORD
hath given you the city.
17 And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are therein,
to the LORD: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are
with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.
18 And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing, lest
ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing, and
make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.
19 But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are
consecrated unto the LORD: they shall come into the treasury of the
LORD.
20 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and
it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and
the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat,
so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before
him, and they took the city.
21 And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and
woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the
sword.

1 Corinthians 15:40-41
40 There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the
glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is
another.
41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and
another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star
in glory.

Job 4-6
4 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that
is born of a woman?
5 Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not
pure in his sight.
6 How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?

Psalms 8:3-4
3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and
the stars, which thou hast ordained;
4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that
thou visitest him?

To MountZion - Page 43 Empty Re: To MountZion

Post  Admin on Thu 29 Apr 2010, 11:50 am

Seek to know Jesus continually

1 Chronicles 16:11 - Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.

In the message we received today the Lord tells us to do three things:

1) Seek the Lord continually
2) Seek His strength continually
3) Seek His face continually

1) Seek the Lord continually

If I ask any person on earth who is alive or dead to describe God, I
am very sure no one will ever be able to do so. What they will do is
describe His nature, His character, His ability etc. all these are in
their limitations as to what man has experienced over the years. No
one can describe God the Father for no one has ever seen Him except
for God the Son.

Forget about knowing God the Father, even God the Son is impossible
for man to know and see Him in His glory. When Moses made this
request, the Lord showed him His reflection (glory) but not Himself.
The glory of God what we see is just the reflection of the reality.
The different is in seeing the sunrays fallen on an object and looking
directly at the sun. Man with naked eyes will lose his eyesight if he
glares at the sun. The sun light we receive is also a filtered light,
filtered by the atmosphere surrounding the earth.

If we cannot know God the Father or God the Son then it is a dream
that we will know God the Holy Spirit. When Jesus said baptize them in
the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that order is the order in
which we can know Him. The Father reveals the Son to man and the Son
reveals the Spirit of God to man. Those who know the Father (God the
Father - Heavenly Father) will know the Son (Jesus the Son of God) and
those who know the Son (Jesus Christ - Son of God) will know the
Father (Holy Spirit - Father of Jesus and our Father too since Jesus
called us brother). It is the Father (Holy Spirit) Who reveals the Son
(God the Son) and it is the Son (God the Son) Who reveals the Father
(God the Father).

Forgetting about knowing God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy
Spirit, many of us do not even know Jesus the Son of God who is the
human form in which the God the Son came. People do not know when they
refer to Jesus who they are referring to, or when they say Christ who
they are referring to, or when they say Son of God who they are
referring to, or when they say God the Son Who they are referring to.

What man has known of Jesus is just like knowing a drop in the sea. As
humans we need to eternally thirst for God and know Him to experience
His glory. The only way to start knowing God is to know Jesus.


2) Seek His strength continually

The word used as strength is also translated in many places as power.
To receive the power we need to seek His authority and we receive His
authority when we know His Name. The authority of God is in the Name
of God and this Name is evoked when take the Name of Jesus. It is
written the Name of Jesus is above all names and everything on earth,
below the earth, and in Heaven bows to Name of Jesus. That does not
means it is above the name of God but in the Name of Jesus is the Name
of God. That also does not mean that Jesus is God€ ’²s Name.

By saying 'Jesus' by our lips we will be saying the name of the man
Jesus, but when we say the Name of Jesus from our hearts knowing Who
He is, we will be evoking the Name of the Lord and that will make all
things to submit to the Name.

Thus to have authority we come back to knowing Jesus.


3) Seek His face continually

Seeking the face of God means to seek His favor. When Moses wanted to
see the Lord's face (favor) the Lord asked him to stand between the
clift of the rock (gap between the rock) and he would see the
reflection of His glory pass by.

We the people of God who are born after Jesus came as man are more
privileged than Moses. We can see the face (favor) of God which Moses
was not allowed but for us too we need to stand in between the gap in
the Rock. This Rock is not a rock in any mountain but the Holy Spirit.
It is when we stand in the Holy Spirit we see the favor of God in us
and in our lives.

Now the irony is to stand in the Holy Spirit we need to stand in the
Name of Jesus and to stand in the Name of Jesus we need to know Jesus,
so all things come back to knowing Jesus.

So my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, we may think we know Jesus
but if we do not see the glory of God around us and in our lives then
we need to understand that there is lot we do not know about Jesus.

When God the Son humbled Himself as man God stretched His Hand and
made it easy for man to know Him. So let us reach out to Him by
knowing more and more of Jesus, by studying His Word and having a
relationship with Him.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, You are an awesome God. No human can ever know You or
imagine You. It is by your mercy and grace that we are getting to know
You through Jesus Christ. Lord Jesus by your Spirit reveal Yourself
and the Father unto us. That we may see and experience your glory in
our lives...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Exodus 33:13-23
13 Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight,
shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in
thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.
14 And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.
15 And he said unto him, If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence.
16 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have
found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so
shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are
upon the face of the earth.
17 And the LORD said unto Moses, I will do this thing also that thou
hast spoken: for thou hast found grace in my sight, and I know thee by
name.
18 And he said, I beseech thee, shew me thy glory.
19 And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I
will proclaim the name of the LORD before thee; and will be gracious
to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew
mercy.
20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man
see me, and live.
21 And the LORD said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt
stand upon a rock:
22 And it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will
put thee in a clift of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand
while I pass by:
23 And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts:
but my face shall not be seen.

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.

Acts 19:13-17
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.
17 And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at
Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was
magnified.

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

Come out of Egypt; listen to Him


Jeremiah 23:7 - Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that
they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children
of Israel out of the land of Egypt;

Since a few days, I know the tone of my messages have changed. I never
intended, nor desired to be harsh or hard in my messages on
SavedByFaith.

I have two options one is to continue giving nice and soothing words
which will increase the number of subscriber and keep them reading.
But this I know this will not change anyone from inside, though it may
make them feel good and keep them occupied.

The other option was to give the Word as the Lord desires, so that the
written Word becomes a spoken Word and comes alive in the hearts of
people. And when this Word comes alive, it surely does its work and
never fails.

Ever since I opted for the second option I did lose a few members who
could not face the Truth. I do pray for them and also ask each and
every one of you to also pray for them. Even if there are few true
Christians the world will surely stand and take notice of God.

Of late the Lord has been connecting me to people in Mumbai and around
India who are passionate of Christ. You can experience Christ in them
as they live for Christ.

When Jesus came as man, He manifested the Word in the flesh and after
His death and Resurrection that Word has now become a living Spirit
(Light) and dwells in all those who accept His sacrifice. The Spirit
of Truth - the author of the Word is now in us and it is He, on whom
if we depend, will bring us out of the double life (calling ourselves
Christians but not living as one), which the evil one has put us into
by making the children of God lose the Truth via sin and deceit.

We, who are been made righteous (under process) by the Lord; let us
listen to Him, Who dwells in us as He speaks to us.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, You dwell in the hearts of your creation - your people. Your
glory is manifested as the Living Word works in us and through us.
Lord, fill us with your glory so that we are overwhelmed by You and
may glorify You in us and in this world which does not know You...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.


I like to share with you a testimony which I received a few days back
of a couple from Mumbai, who are close to me and who went to the
interiors of Maharastra (India) for the first time (in fact it is
their first trip independently going out of Mumbai to witness Christ).

------------------------
From the desk of Bro. Manish and Sister Roslian

All € ’¶ This is to THANK all of you for your prayers and to brief you
about the happenings in Jalna & Aurangabad.

1. We travelled by a rickshaw from Aurangabad to Jalna (50 Kms)
As we shared about Jesus the rickshaw driver accepted Christ because
he fell in love with Jesus, and came to church on Sunday and
testified.
He also mentioned that there was a huge increase in his earnings in
the last 2 days since he got to know Christ.

2. In one of the Hindu house we were called to share the Good
news of Jesus Christ.
As Roslain was teaching on Matthew 13 (Parable of the Sower) the lady
of that house (mother of 3 kids) fell flat on the ground and began to
slither like a snake. (Roslain told me that she was explaining to this
lady how a harden heart is like a stone and in between stones
scorpions and snake dwell)
Before we laid our hand on her head she began to scream that she was
seeing darkness and was being dragged into it. In moments she was
quiet and felt lifeless.
When the teaching was over, she got up and seemed normal.
Later that evening she & her eldest son came to church and testified
that she had been suffering from convulsions for 20 years and had been
set free that day.

3. We were invited by a pastor to his house for lunch. His wife
mentioned that they did not get any water in their house for 12 days,
as a result she had to fetch water from a few blocks away.
Rosalin laid her hand on the tap and rebuked the devourer.
The very next day they had so much water that they filled their tank
till it overflowed, filled all utensils at home and then called their
neighbors to fill water from their house. (II Kings 4:5-6)

4. One evening at church there was a poor lady who had been
having high fever / body-ache for 7 days but was not able to go to the
doctor due to her financially condition.
God healed her completely during worship.

5. When the above lady received her healing she begged that we
go to her house as her husband was unwell.
Apparently the doctor had told him that he has TB and due to which he
had been bed-ridden for 3 months and unable to stand or lift his legs.
We just explained to him John 10:10 € ’¶ Hearing this he began to lift
his feet€ ’¥..and today we got a call that he got up and is moving around
the house.

The only reason for sharing this with all of you is to tell you € ’¶ that
there are MANY MANY people in need and each and every one of us can be
a blessing no matter where we are.

Bro. Manish

(Bro. Manish was born in a Hindu family and accepted Christ after he
met Roslian and saw Christ in her)

God runs the show

Psalms 147:15-18
15 He sendeth forth his commandment upon earth: his word runneth very swiftly.
16 He giveth snow like wool: he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.
17 He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?
18 He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to
blow, and the waters flow.

In today's message the Lord is confirming to us that He is in charge
of everything.

Many people still believe that the disasters are by Satan. It is due
to this lack of knowledge that we land up glorifying Satan and give
him more credit than due to him.

Satan does have powers but these are restricted and he cannot use them
freely. Where ever the countenance (favor) of God is shinning, there
Satan cannot even dream of doing anything. It is only in places where
God is rejected or the Lord allows him; Satan gets an opportunity to
do his destructive activities.

It also does not mean that where ever Satan has a hold there will be
disasters. There are many times that Satan gives the feeling of peace
and prosperity, but these are temporary and land up becoming like
cancer. Unless something is perfect it is sure that something will go
wrong, so also is with the plans of Satan, since he is not perfect.

God is perfect and His plan is perfect, so when we abide with his
plans nothing goes wrong with us. Since it will take man time to learn
to abide with God€ ’²s plan; so calamities become a part of the story for
the salvation of man. Sometimes God does things due to anger but then
He remembers His promise and by His mercy and grace He retracts.

The only place where Satan rules without restriction is the hearts of
those who have given him dominion. This dominion is given to Satan via
sin and taken away via repentance, accepting the sacrifice of Jesus
Christ and walking in the Word and Spirit of Christ.

God has said that there will be a time when He will take away His
Spirit from man and only then will Satan be let loose with no
restriction of his powers. It is at this stage that Jesus will come as
man with His Angels and destroy Satan and his empire. Satan will be
bond along with his team and will be put in the Lake of Fire for
everlasting suffering.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, You are in charge of our world since You are our King and
Lord. We are your righteous and walk in your ways. No power on earth
or below the earth can harm us nor have any effect on us. By your
Name, You have given us authority over all things since all things bow
to your Name. Lord help us to always remember the truth and let not
lie make its way into our hearts and land us rejecting your grace and
protection...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Psalms 147:1-12
1 Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God;
for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.
2 The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the
outcasts of Israel.
3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.
5 Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.
6 The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground.
7 Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:
8 Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the
earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.
9 He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.
10 He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not
pleasure in the legs of a man.
11 The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope
in his mercy.
12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.

Post  Admin on Sun 25 Apr 2010, 2:40 pm

Sorry there were some mistakes in the previous mail therefore I am
sending it again with corrections
Who are we?
Isaiah 10:15 - Shall the axe boast itself against him that heweth
therewith? or shall the saw magnify itself against him that shaketh
it? as if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it up, or
as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no wood.
Today's message is especially for those who know the Lord, people who
have experienced the Lord and through whom the Lord has done great and
mighty things. It may not be great miracles but even healings and
blessings which the Lord does through them.
This message is applied to people who pursue commercial prosperity
(the people of Assyria in Hebrew means 'a step') and people of
Jerusalem (the false 'teaching of peace'). But the context of the
scriptures is also to the people of Samaria (in Hebrew means 'Rocky
Mountains') people who have multiple truths/understandings. They are
people who do not have the true understanding of the Word of God in
full, but think they do. The difference between them and a maturing
person of God is that the second knows he is learning and there is a
long way for him to go, but the first thinks he knows everything on
most matters.

It is because people do not really have the truth in them, they think
the vessel is more important sometimes more than the one who wields
it.

Like 'luck' is not a word in the dictionary of a believer, similarly
are the word 'my talent'. It is as foolish as saying 'the airplane has
the talent to fly'. It is called an airplane because it is designed to
fly, can you call it an airplane if it drives like a car. The ability
is based by the one who designed and made it.

Each one of us is given a skill set which enables us to excel in
certain areas of life. It does not mean we cannot do other things, for
the One in us can do all things through us.

Just to share a personal example to explain this. I have a calling of
a Teacher in my life and therefore the Lord has blessed me with wisdom
to understand spiritual things excellently. Like the Lord taught
Daniel, sometimes He teaches me in dreams and visions when I mediate
on scriptures or things of the Kingdom of God. These visions also at
times warn about disasters or important events coming in the near
future, like I was aware of the recession in April end 2008 before it
hit the world (especially India) in a big way, similarly I was aware
beforehand of the great flood which hit Mumbai. These visions come in
deep sleep, but yesterday something odd happened. Just when I got up,
while I was awake and just finished praying I got a vision, warning of
a disaster in great details in the near future, like the way a Prophet
receives.
It is in the calling of a Prophet that they see things; images, words
or symbols run before their eyes even when they are wide open, as if
in a trance. I am called as a 'Teacher' but that does not mean I do
not have an ability to operate as a 'Prophet'. He, Who is in us builds
us completely in all areas. But we need to understand the calling we
are called for will always stand tall and tower over all other
abilities.
For example a leg can be used to lift things like a hand or even be
used to write like a hand, but it cannot call itself a hand.
God has made each one of us and designed us with special abilities and
these are all for the glory of the Body of Christ and He (the Father)
Who dwells in this Temple.
So everyone who starts to function as the Lord designed them, should
not take pride in themselves, but in He do has made them and others
for that special functions.
Our function may seem important to us but unless others do not do
their functions, our functions cannot really fully glorify the Body of
Christ. Therefore let us encourage others too in their skills as we
all together working as one body can give glory to our Maker.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, You created us with a plan and gave us special abilities to
fulfill the plan in us. We are a part of the great plan which You have
for mankind. Lord, bring us to realize it is You Who does all things
in us and through us. Help us surrender ourselves to your plan that we
may give glory to You alone...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Isaiah 10:11-16
11 Shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to
Jerusalem and her idols?
12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, that, when the Lord hath
performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will
punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria, and the
glory of his high looks.
13 For he hath said, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and
by my wisdom; for I have understanding: and I have removed the bounds
of the peoples, and have robbed their treasures, and like a valiant
man I have brought down them that sit on thrones:
14 and my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the peoples; and as
one gathereth eggs that are forsaken, have I gathered all the earth:
and there was none that moved the wing, or that opened the mouth, or
chirped.
15 Shall the axe boast itself against him that heweth therewith?
shall the saw magnify itself against him that wieldeth it? as if a rod
should wield them that lift it up, or as if a staff should lift up him
that is not wood.
16 Therefore will the Lord, Jehovah of hosts, send among his fat ones
leanness; and under his glory there shall be kindled a burning like
the burning of fire.

The fishes of John
John 21:12-13
12 Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples
durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.
13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.
After I got this scripture I saw there was something fishy about this
word fish in John. The Greek word used for fish in John is very
excusive to the gospel of John and occurs only 5 times. Even the same
event narrated in Luke uses another word for fish and not the word
fish which John uses.
Like I told you that the Gospel of John is less a Gospel and more an
Autobiography of Jesus and a book directly narrated by Jesus through
John (therefore I personally call it the book of Jesus). Every word of
the book is beyond any human imagination, possibility of understanding
and presumption to be written by ordinary man; not that the other
books are not extraordinary. No book in the New Testament comes any
close to this book, even comparing this book to the Old Testament
books it is like all the Prophet like Moses, Samuel, Gad, Nathan,
Elijah, Elisha, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk,
Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi of the Old Testament have sat
together with the wise men of the Bible like Solomon, Daniel, Job etc.
and they sat together to write this book.
Among the 5 occurrence of this special word 'fish'<3795> (the Gospel
of John does use the normal standard word 'fish' <2486> elsewhere
which is used by others too), thrice it is to do with the event
concerning the message scripture we received. When Jesus meant fish
here, He did not mean the fish which is used as meal (in Hebrew the
word fish comes from the root meaning € ’±increase€ ’²).
The Gospel of John shows that Simon Peter was so taken up with this
fish <3795> that he went naked in the boat to catch them. It was only
when he saw Jesus and was told it was Him that he covered himself and
came swimming to meet Him. Jesus did bless them with great number of
fish <3795> but when they sat to eat Jesus asked ask Simon 'lovest
thou me more than these?'. Jesus was pointing not to the fish <2486>
but to the fish <3795>. Simon Peter was called to lead and taken over
the operations in the absence of Jesus but Jesus knew that Simon Peter
had a weakness to € ’±increase€ ’², therefore the remaining two questions
also were again asked to confirm the same.
It was greed that bought the magnificent Lucifer to become Satan and
fall. He did not lust to earthly things nor for bad things, but for
good things of the Kingdom of Heaven. But the problem was he wanted
these things without purpose and benefit.
God has made all things not to showoff that He is God and can do
these. God has made all things so that it can prosper and the plan
which He has for all things may be fulfilled.
The 'increase' that we need is shown by the miracle which Jesus did
when He multiplied the five loaves and two small fishes <3875> to feed
five thousand, such that all were more than satisfied. For the other
miracle in which Jesus multiplies loaves and fish to feed the
multitude, He uses the normal term fish <2486> (food). It is to show
that our 'increase' in physical and spiritual should be for purpose
and for the prosperity of our body and the Body of Christ, of which we
are a part of and both 'fishes' come from God. We did not make the
fish but only catch what God has provided.
So when we need them let us first give thanks and receive it, for all
these are already provided for us.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, we thank You for your Word of life. We thank You for all
the provision You have made available to Us. Lord God, we thank You
for the daily bread and for all the spiritual blessings that You have
already given us according to your plan in our lives. Lord guide our
hearts that it work and want according to your plan and purpose in us
and through us...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference scriptures]
John 21:1-17
1 After these things Jesus shewed himself again to the disciples at
the sea of Tiberias; and on this wise shewed he himself.
2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called Didymus, and
Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two other
of his disciples.
3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We
also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship
immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but
the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They
answered him, No.
6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship,
and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to
draw it for the multitude of fishes.
7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is
the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his
fisher€ ’²s coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into
the sea.
8 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not
far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net
with fishes.
9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals
there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.
10 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.
11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great
fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so
many, yet was not the net broken.
12 Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples
durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.
13 Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.
14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his
disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of
Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord;
thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest
thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.
He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou
me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest
thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou
knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
John 6:5-13
5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come
unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these
may eat?
6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.
7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not
sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.
8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter€ ’²s brother, saith unto him,
9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small
fishes: but what are they among so many?
10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in
the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he
distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set
down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the
fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets
with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and
above unto them that had eaten.

To MountZion - Page 43 Empty Re: To MountZion

Post  Admin on Wed 21 Apr 2010, 12:47 pm

Are you dressed for the job?

1 Chronicle 15:27 - And David was clothed with a robe of fine linen,
and all the Levites that bare the ark, and the singers, and Chenaniah
the master of the song with the singers: David also had upon him an
ephod of linen.

I was just getting into the details of the message given to us today
and I was once again amazed of how awesome the Word of God is.

David was a King but when it came to the carrying the Ark of Covenant
(which I told you before symbolizes the CROSS - the cause of Christ -
salvation for mankind) David did not wear his royal garments but was
dressed in a fine linen robe and wore an ephod on it.

The word linen < 0948> in Hebrew used for the robe means 'bleached'
and the word linen <0906> used with the ephod, comes from root which
means 'separated threads'.

The linen robe symbolizes righteousness of Jesus Christ which we put
on when we do the job we are called to do in Christ (carry our CROSS).
We inside may not be perfect and may still be fighting some areas in
our lives, yet we are called righteous by the Lord no because we are,
but because we put on Jesus Christ.

The other linen of which the ephod (priestly garment) was made
symbolizes holiness. To be holy means to be separated from things
which are not of the Kingdom of God. It does not mean we need to
disconnect from everyone who is not a believer, nor to give up all the
good things of this world. Being holy means not to indulge or be
associated with anything, any habit or anyone which/who takes you away
from God or hinders your relationship with the Lord. This would
include small simple things, not only great ugly things like sinning.

For instance if our reading the newspaper or watching the news is
causing us to meditate on the disasters and causes depression which
causes us to lose faith in God, then it is time to drop the newspaper
and switch off the TV. Even simple things like talking too much or
just sitting idle and dreaming away can be of great harm to many in
their relationship with the Lord.

It is an irony that the Hebrew word used for linen here is pronounced
'bad'. According to the world the things that you need to do to be
holy may sound foolish or insane. But anything that helps build your
relationship with the Kingdom of God (God and His people) is good.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord, we are called by You to be a part of You - your Body - the
Church. Lord, although we may be doing the work but the real work is
done not by us but by You through us. We may not be perfect but since
we pursue You who are perfect, we too are called perfect by You. Lord
as we step out to do your work help us discern the small and simple
things which corrupt us and destroy our relationship with You...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference scriptures]
1 Chronicle 15:27-29
27 And David was clothed with a robe of fine linen, and all the
Levites that bare the ark, and the singers, and Chenaniah the master
of the song with the singers: David also had upon him an ephod of
linen.
28 Thus all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the LORD
with shouting, and with sound of the cornet, and with trumpets, and
with cymbals, making a noise with psalteries and harps.
29 And it came to pass, as the ark of the covenant of the LORD came
to the city of David, that Michal the daughter of Saul looking out at
a window saw king David dancing and playing: and she despised him in
her heart.

Romans 7:10-19
10 And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death.
11 For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me.
12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.
14 For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
15 For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not;
but what I hate, that do I.
16 If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good
thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which
is good I find not.
19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would
not, that I do.

Romans 12:1-2
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye
present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God,
which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the
renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and
acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

To MountZion - Page 43 Empty Re: To MountZion

Jerusalem, Jerusalem the Lord is against you

Isaiah 29:1-4
1 Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt! add ye year to
year; let them kill sacrifices.
2 Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow:
and it shall be unto me as Ariel.
3 And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege
against thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee.
4 And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground,
and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be,
as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy
speech shall whisper out of the dust.

Yesterday we received the message of how the Lord is going to deal
with this Jerusalem. Today we receive the same message but with finer
details as to why the Lord is against this false Jerusalem.

The word 'Ariel' which the Lord uses here to describe Jerusalem means
'lion of God' and comes from the root word 'lion like head'. Lion is a
symbol of righteousness, that the reason Jesus was called the Lion of
Judah. But Satan too is referred many a times as 'like a lion'. Satan
deceives people and comes as a righteous person and this has always
been a warming throughout the Bible.

If a person has the Spirit of discernment and the wisdom and knowledge
of the Kingdom of Heaven, one would see the mischief that Satan is
playing so well with the people of God.

Satan's agenda number one is not to harm or cause inconvenience to us
but it is to destroy our spirit so that we lose what is set for us in
heaven. The external things or physical things which he does are just
to cause fear, hopelessness, and eat into the fruit(s) of the Holy
Spirit in us. He does not have power to kill our spirit therefore he
tries to put us in such a place that we die by the anger of the Lord
on the Day of Judgment. Since he (king of Tyrus) is bonded, his
associate (the beast / the prince of Tyrus) has camouflaged himself
very well and uses all his wisdom and knowhow of the Kingdom of God to
do his work (the word 'Satan' is not singular but plural).

Isaiah Chapter 29:1-16 goes on to tell why the anger of God is on
Jerusalem and some of them are:

Celebration of feasts (Isaiah 29:1): In the Word the Lord tells us to
celebrate the few feasts as defined by Him. These are done with a
purpose, they are primarily not for us to enjoy but by our enjoying we
are to witness to others the reason and cause of celebration. This
Jerusalem has hundreds of feasts but the cause is in the dustbin.

No understanding of the Word (Isaiah 29:10-12): Since their hearts are
hard the Lord has shut their eyes and thus they are not able to
understand the Word. The highly educated among them reads it and yet
does not understand it. The uneducated does not understand because
he/she cannot read.

Lip service and traditions (Isaiah 29:13-14): All the prayers,
sacraments and services of this institute are just lip service and
they themselves do not know what they speak. If anyone of the people
every pause and understand the words which they speak, if wisdom is in
them they will shiver in fear. The words are full of faithlessness
and words just out to anger God more and more. All that the Word of
God tells not to do they insist on doing (like speaking to the dead
and believing in another savior/s other than Jesus Christ).
Traditions like statutes are meant to build faith and not to keep
people busy and far away from God.

Deeds done in dark places (Isaiah 29:15): Since this institute
deceives like a lion, it does a lot of social things to hide the real
terrible things it is actually doing.
Let me explain to you in simple words. If a man has wound with deep
infection on his leg, by just putting a first-aid and not doing
anything else even after knowing the case is satanic. First-aid is
very necessary but more necessary is the actual medical help to remove
the infection and heal the wound from inside. The bandage may give
psychological relief but soon the person will either get his leg
amputated or the poison will kill him.
If one reads in Acts the Apostles did give great importance to socials
service and ran soup kitchens for the poor but they themselves did not
get involved in it. They selected anointed good people to take charge
of it but they themselves did the service of God.
Jesus did not come to start a chain of social service centers even
though He loved the poor and sick He healed them from inside aimed at
setting them permanently free from problems.

Calling themselves holy (Isaiah 29:16): They used the term holy and
compare themselves to their Creator. We are called to be holy but we
know that it is impossible to be perfectly holy therefore we all need
the grace of Jesus Christ to pass thru as holy.
Since there was none holy therefore God had to come as man Jesus and
be a sacrifice for us. Even though He was perfect yet knowing He was
man He did not allow anyone to call Him good. It is only after the
Judgment Day that man becomes good, complete, incorruptible and holy.


One brother of mine who is still in this institute and has some
knowledge of the Word put me spiritually down last Saturday when he
went about confronting people who were coming out of this institute
and telling them we as light need to be where darkness is and that
this institute will one day like the prodigal son will return to God
in glory. It is like having hope that Stan will one day repent and
turn back to God.

Dear brother and sisters in Christ we cannot say we know more than
God. The Word of God has everything already written about this
institute and we by our prayers, fasting or even sacrificing ourselves
cannot change it. We cannot pray for the institute but can surely pray
for the people still there in the institute that they hear what the
Spirit of God is saying to them. We as light are to repel darkness not
be a part of it.

For even after all this warnings there is still hope (Isaiah 29: 17
onwards), the Lord say He will bless them when they disciple
themselves by turning to Him, by hearing to His Voice and seeing with
their eyes.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, we pray for all your people who are still there in the grasp
of evil one. Lord we speak against the beast and his institute and
bind his powers and set your people free from him. We speak to their
hearts so that their eyes will see and their ears will listen to what
your Spirit is speaking to them...

We make this pray in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Isaiah 29:10-19
10 For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep,
and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers
hath he covered.
11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book
that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read
this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:
12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read
this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.
13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me
with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed
their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the
precept of men:
14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among
this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of
their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent
men shall be hid.
15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD,
and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who
knoweth us?
16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the
potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me
not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no
understanding?
17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned
into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a
forest?
18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the
eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.
19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor
among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

Revelation 17:4-9
4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked
with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her
hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE
GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with
the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with
great admiration.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will
tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth
her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of
the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the
earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life
from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was,
and is not, and yet is.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven
mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

Revelation 18:3-5
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her
fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication
with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the
abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my
people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not
of her plagues.
5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her
iniquities.

Jerusalem will be attacked by all the nations

Zechariah 14:2 - For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to
battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the
women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity,
and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

People who read this may be wondering is this a blessing or a curse?

This scripture is not something that is referring to the past but the
future (immediate future). It is surely not speaking about the
location Jerusalem which is in the country Israel.

Jerusalem is referred in sense of those who dwell in that spiritual
state of growth. Like I told you many a times before; a child of God
(person who knows God deep inside even before God calls him / her for
that is the seed which identifies him/her as a child, like a just born
baby knows it has a mother) takes a spiritual growth from Egypt
(double way of life) to Zion (fortified city - totally under God’s
protection). The in-between stages are Jerusalem (teaching of peace),
Assyria (pursuing commercial growth), Ephraim (one who wants God
abundantly and as well prosperity abundantly), Samaria (person having
multiple truths - Bible has only one foundation and one truth no Old
and New, it is called Word not words) and even Babylon (confusion)
among others. Sometimes a person can be in multiple states at the same
time; in the one he/she is most in is where he/she is anchored.

If Jerusalem is suppose to identifying a person pursuing peace then
why has God written such a curse on it?

In the Old Testament if one minutely checks the Hebrew script and the
word 'Jerusalem', there are two scripts which are almost identical and
translated as Jerusalem (Y@ruwshalaim / Y@ruwshalayim). They both are
Jerusalem but there is a difference in their spiritual meaning. One
Jerusalem means one who pursues peace with God and then man, the other
Jerusalem is the one pursues peace first with man and then with God.
The curse is against the second Jerusalem.

In the Commandments, love God is first and then comes love man not the
other way around. People who try peace the other way around, deceive
themselves first and then others, and in the bargain get the opposite
of peace.

In my last mail I explained about physical gender difference in
spirit, how the image of God is in us (man) and image of man is in us
(woman).

The Lord is saying to those who dwell in this false Jerusalem that all
the nations will target it and especially to those from this Jerusalem
who act human (not Christ like but in a humanly nature) will be
ravished (raped - modesty abused). Most of Jerusalem will be
completely destroyed but few may escape.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus You are the Prince of Peace yet You said in your Word that
You are come to light a fire between those who dwell in a family.
Lord, open the minds of your people and let them see the truth. The
only peace that exists is when the peace comes from You and this peace
flows on among us. Those who are against You, against such, how can
there be peace?

Lord, we are assure even they that hate You can not harm us, unless
You have allowed them to. This too is done only for your glory. For
your glory Lord we put our lives into your hands knowing You are in
control of all things...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Isaiah 9:6-7
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the
government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The
Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end,
upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to
establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for
ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Luke 12:49-57
49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be
already kindled?
50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened
till it be accomplished!
51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay;
but rather division:
52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided,
three against two, and two against three.
53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against
the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against
the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the
daughter in law against her mother in law.
54 And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of
the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.
55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat;
and it cometh to pass.
56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the
earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?
57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?
