Hardened Hearts without Repentance

John 12:40,41 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that
they should not see with [their] eyes, nor understand with [their] heart,
and be converted, and I should heal them. These things said Esaias, when he
saw his glory, and spake of him.

We find a large section of Christians follow the false doctrine of Once
Saved Always Saved even though many may not do not confess it. They believe
just by believing in Christ they receive grace and that grace will save
them and assure them their inheritance in Heaven.

There are some facts OSAS doctrine ignores:-
1) There are different categories of grace so one needs to have grace in
different areas of one’s live, also one needs to grow in quantity /
strength in that specific area.
2) Grace is received by faith thus to remain in grace one needs to keep the
faith. Even though this grace is a gift yet it is given only to those who
have faith. If the person loses faith then grace too will be lost and we
see this happened with many in the Bible i.e. the Israelites who left Egypt..
3) All those who believe are part of the flock of Jesus Christ and the
flock constitutes of sheep and goats. It is only the sheep who enter Heaven
and not the goats.

Bible goes on to specify for every sheep there are two goats thus one can
imagine the amount of so called Christians who are deceived by doctrines
which will destroy them. When Bible says believe in Christ to be saved it
does not say by believing alone one will enter Haven, it means believing is
primarily importance and after believing one needs to follow Christ to
become His disciple. The term disciple means one who follows and not just
the one who believes.

Today’s message tells us God is aware of this yet does not intervene to
change these people. We cannot blame God for the loss of these people for
God looks for repentance and these people lack repentance. They think being
sorry is repentance so do not experience true baptism and thus do not
qualify to enter Heaven.

One needs to be baptized in spirit to enter Heaven and the word baptism
does not mean being tipped in water as what people think. The Greek word
‘baptizo’ comes for the dying process in which clothe is dyed, thus
requires change in spirit in what the person is dipped in. the person need
to take on the nature of that in which he or she is baptized in and the
person’s former nature needs to die. This is not a one shot process but a
long continual process that starts from the day one is baptized in Christ
right unto the day one sleeps in Christ. All those remaining in that
process (race) will be saved.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Spirit and your Kingdom is a Spirit world. This natural world
will perish and nothing of this will remain on Judgment Day. Lord we pray
we seek your Kingdom in truth thus always have a repenting heart that seeks
correction and change seek light and rejecting darkness. Lord we pray we
are not found amongst the goats but among the sheep...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Mark 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom
of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

Mark 10:23 And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How
hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!

John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be
born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of
yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:

Genesis 15:5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward
heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said
unto him, So shall thy seed be.

Romans 4:16 Therefore [it is] of faith, that [it might be] by grace; to
the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which
is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is
the father of us all,

Revelation 12:3-4
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red
dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast
them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to
be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

Zechariah 13:9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will
refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they
shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It [is] my people:
and they shall say, The LORD [is] my God.

John 2:19-21
19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three
days I will raise it up.
20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building,
and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
21 But he spake of the temple of his body.

He protects us even amongst enemies

John 7:44 And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on
him.

We read about persecution and also read in the Bible of how God protected
His people from their enemies and wonder why at times we see great miracles
and at times face persecution.

Most of the times I have seen people facing problems not in the name of the
Lord but because they do foolish things taking God’s name. They face the
wrath of God more than the anger of people. Let’s take some examples, many
preach the Gospel not to save people but to add them to their Church.

There was a person preaching in Church about going out saving souls and the
importance of doing so else we do not qualify as Christians. While he was
preaching I was wondering is he the same person, since time and again I had
approached him for evangelizing people in other areas of the city and he
was interested only in those staying near the Church. He knew his Pastor
would not approve of him reaching out to people in other areas.

I have heard a Pastor of a mega Church openly threatening the congregation
about putting their tithes in other places, saying if they do so he would
not come to their help when they need him like caught by a cop or when they
are very sick, and he himself was suffering from severe back problems for
many years.

People may be doing the ‘Lord’s’ ministry with personal interests and
agendas, large number amongst them do for material reasons, some do for
carnal desires (pride, power, glory, gaining obligations etc.) but only a
very few do for the expansion of God’s Kingdom. People have big seminars
for commissioning people for Lord’s mission; find how many amongst them are
actually doing the mission. Not even a minuscule number, yet they are
called great preachers.

Long back a brother came to me saying someone prophesized he would be a
martyr for God’s Kingdom. He was both happy and sad. I asked him what would
the Lord prefer and living solider or a dead solider? And he said a living
solider. Later he realized that the prophecy was fake for that person who
prophesized himself was a fake prophet. In fact the Lord had warned me
about his shaky spiritual life and I had warned him, but he preferred to
not hear that but hear nonsense, even today his spiritual live is the same
even though the Lord had called him for great things.

People do not like to change spiritually so do all kind of nonsense in
God’s name just to justify themselves and when they face problems they call
it persecution. So if we are facing problems in our ministry or spiritual
lives let us first introspect our lives and the purpose of our work in Him.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty and Omnipotent God. There is nothing that is
impossible for You and we see in the Bible You have saved your people from
all kinds of danger when they walked in your way and how they faced
problems when they murmured and broke your Law. Lord we pray we do not
deceive ourselves calling problems as persecution but introspect our
spiritual lives to bring corrections...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Numbers 14:29 Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that
were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old
and upward, which have murmured against me,

Numbers 16:41 But on the morrow all the congregation of the children of
Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron, saying, Ye have killed the
people of the LORD.

Psalms 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine
enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

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

John 16:4 But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come,
ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto
you at the beginning, because I was with you.

2 Timothy 4:3-5
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but
after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having
itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be
turned unto fables.
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an
evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

Justified not by faith or grace alone

Romans 3:28 We reckon therefore that a man is justified by faith apart from
the works of the law.

We know the very famous scripture Ephesians 2:5 which says we are saved by
grace and then we have Ephesians 2:8 which tells us this grace we receive
by faith. That means when I have faith in Christ then I receive His grace
and thus are saved.

But what people do not understand is that grace is only one of the key
elements for our salvation. Just by grace alone one is not saved and if
that was the case then the Holy Spirit would not have be necessary and
Jesus would not have been hung on the cross to make peace with God and man
so that we receive His Spirit, He also would not have left us after His
resurrection to make way for His Spirit to take over.

In today’s scripture we read Paul emphasizing the importance of faith but
also states we need to fulfil the works of the law. This law is not the law
of the Jews (religion) which was to show their worldly righteousness but
Law of God which builds us and brings us to the Truth, which saves us.

Let us not abuse the grace of God by claiming it but not walking in His
Word or shining His light unto others. Let us understand what we receive we
also need to impart unto others so that we receive double, else what we
have will be taken away and faith need to be kept alive, the day our faith
dies we also lose grace.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God. You Lord are light and darkness is not your
creation but by those who did not abide in You. Lord we pray understand we
came to know You by your grace and by your grace we receive your Spirit to
be born again / be renewed in spirit. Lord we pray your people grow in
spirit and mature into Sons so as to inherit your Kingdom, let them not
remain children and lose their inheritance in You...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Ephesians 2:5 even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive
together with Christ (by grace have ye been saved),

Ephesians 2:8 for by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not
of yourselves, [it is] the gift of God;

Mark 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom
of God as a little child, he shall in no wise enter therein.

John 3:5 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!

Acts 14:22 confirming the souls of the disciples, exhorting them to
continue in the faith, and that through many tribulations we must enter
into the kingdom of God.

John 8:31-32
31 Jesus therefore said to those Jews that had believed him, If ye abide
in my word, [then] are ye truly my disciples;
32 and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Did Jesus defy the Law?

Mark 3:2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath
day; that they might accuse him.

We see Jesus loved to heal people especially on Sabbath since the sick and
poor came to the synagogue on that day for alms. Today’s incident where
Jesus was observed if He would heal this man with a withered hand on a
Sabbath and Jesus did not disappoint them, He healed him.

This healing had bought great changes in the relationship of Jesus with the
Jewish authorities. It was not just about Jesus breaking the Law of Moses
(according to the Jews) but more about whom He had healed. We read the
effect of this healing was so much that the Pharisees immediately went to
higher authorities so as to plot on killing Him.

The Greek word used for withered is xeros and comes from the root word xeo
which means to boil/heat. The hand of this man was not due to any disease
but by punishment. A historian had shared on how this man was punished for
working on the tower of Solomon that too on a Sabbath. He was among the
many who were deceived by Jewish authorities to work on a Sabbath since
King Herod had given them a deadline and later punished for working on a
Sabbath (they were spared their lives). Not only they but even their family
members were punished. Thus this healing of Jesus was looked as a defiance
to the Jewish authorities and their law.

This healing had broken whatever little relationship Jesus had with the
Jewish religious authorities. This healing and healing of blind Bartimaeus
(who was a similar case but punished by Roman authorities for rebelling
against the Roman authorities) in Jericho were events that led to the
crucifixion of Jesus. Jesus being well aware yet did it.

Today the Lord is telling us at every step He was aware of events that
would led to His crucifixion and yet did not retreat. This He knew from the
time He created us and did it only because He desires to save us, that is
His love.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty and All Knowing God. Nothing is hidden from You since
time is no factor for You. Lord we pray we understand your love and its
purpose that is the salvation of man. You commanded of us love one another
and to do what You did, that is to save souls. Help us Lord to learn that
true love is salvation of others...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Mark 3:
1 And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which
had a withered hand.
2 And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that
they might accuse him.
3 And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.
4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or
to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.
5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for
the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine
hand. And he stretched [it] out: and his hand was restored whole as the
other.
6 And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the
Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.

Wisdom and Christianity

Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

There is always this big question: Can a person who is highly educated and
filled with knowledge be a Christian?
Answer is: most likely not.

The problem is not education, Christians are not supposed to be uneducated.
In the Jewish community education is a must since to understand scriptures
one needed to be educated. So none of the people with Jesus were uneducated
including the women and this is confirmed by the kind of teachings Jesus
shared which were not towards uneducated people but towards educated
people, since they were filled with historical events or understanding of
nature, natural phenomena.

If we look at what the world is teaching us we will see these are filled
with false information i.e. they teach evolution even though knowing it is
not fully true. Yes there is micro evolution (evolving within species) but
there is no macro evolution (one species becoming another specie). Similar
today they state the sexual preference is genetic even though knowing it is
a lie, it is like saying one is a robber or murderer or rapist due to
hereditary reasons thus natural since these also are transferred
hereditarily.

God is not against knowledge or against wisdom but in fact He says ‘the
truth will set us free’, so every Christian needs to be filled with
knowledge and understanding and for that wisdom is necessary, but what
matters is what knowledge, what understanding and what wisdom. If we are
filled with garbage can there be any good in us.

My initial coming to know the Lord was a great challenge because of the
knowledge I carried. I was a person with scientific temperament thus tried
to find a scientific understanding for all things including love, faith and
even God.

Science tells us love is a chemical reaction in our body and they are not
fully wrong. The problem is their definition of love. What they call love
is actual attraction or passion, this can be triggered for many reasons and
that trigger causes a chemical called phenethylamine to flow through the
head and this cause ‘love’. The interesting part is this chemical is found
in chocolate (among others). Coming to God science says ‘God’ but defines
Him as a ‘supernatural being’ (natural but super) so ultimately defines Him
as an alien/aliens whose source is not known.

It was only when God proved to me my ‘science’ was garbage that I started
to believe in Him. Today He causes me to learn science, history, geography
and everything under the sun but with proper understanding and discernment
since without them it is difficult to understand His Word.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Creator and everything that exist is created by You. You made
all things good and stated so after You created them. Lord may we discern
that knowledge we pickup in this world. We pray we do not become fools by
realizing on garbage but be filled with knowledge and understanding that
comes from You as You created them...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Romans 1:22-25
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like
to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping
things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of
their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the
creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

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

Matthew 23:17 [Ye] fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or
the temple that sanctifieth the gold?

Matthew 23:19 [Ye] fools and blind: for whether [is] greater, the gift, or
the altar that sanctifieth the gift?

1 Corinthians 4:10 We [are] fools for Christ’s sake, but ye [are] wise in
Christ; we [are] weak, but ye [are] strong; ye [are] honourable, but we
[are] despised.

Ephesians 5:15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as
wise,

Having proper understanding is very important

John 11:9 Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any
man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this
world.

It is very sad when one sees people having half knowledge of things and yet
being satisfied. It is true one cannot have complete knowledge of
everything, but when one walks and takes a step ahead one places one’s foot
on the ground firmly then only moves the other leg, without a firm foot if
the person moves the other foot then the person can stumble.

Knowledge is not understanding. Understanding comes when wisdom works on
knowledge and wisdom comes either from God or through experience. Wisdom
can also come from other people’s experiences and does not need to be ours
alone.

I always tell people either study the Word and have a good relationship
with the Lord to have understanding, so as to avoid having bad experiences
in life, else we will learn by experiences. Do not look for testimonies of
disaster to glory but for glory to glory. For example if I pray ‘Lord I
want to know You’, and I do not study His Word, then the only option for
the Lord is to let me know Him through life experiences.

Today’s message underlines the importance of having understanding of the
Kingdom of God so that we do not stumble spiritually and everything
spiritual manifests in the natural.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty Eternal God. You know all things, and your wisdom is
without measure. You Lord call us your children and thus desire us to have
wisdom and understanding of all things. You use simple people of this world
but do not keep them simple in your Kingdom and thus give them your Spirit
of Truth who teaches us all things that is yours. We pray Lord we know as
Christians we are called to be 10 times better than the people of this
world...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

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

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

1 John 4:6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not
of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit
of error.

Daniel 1:20 And in all matters of wisdom [and] understanding, that the
king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the
magicians [and] astrologers that [were] in all his realm.

Adding emotions to scriptures

John 6:8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s 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?

We all know in the book of Revelation John ends with a warning that anyone
who adds to the scriptures, plague would be added unto him and whosoever
takes away from scriptures then part of his inheritance in Heaven would be
taken away. We are called to state what scriptures state neither adding nor
subtracting from them. But we find almost all Preachers add to scriptures
especially when they do not understand it fully and this additions are
carried by the people for years and years.

One place we find almost all add to scriptures is in today’s scriptures
where Jesus multiplied loaves of bread and fed thousands. Although the
miracle was done not once but twice and that too in the same fashion yet
people did not understand it because someone had added to scripture, that
additions had set a footprint in the minds of people and thus people see
the scripture through those distorted spectacles.

I happened to see the truth because I was not convinced with what Preachers
shared, each contradicted the other. One day in Church a visiting foreign
Preacher was sharing on this topic and I was shocked to hear the simplicity
and amazement in which the miracles were done, later when I went to
appreciate the Preacher so spoke to him and he himself was confused as to
what I was saying. I checked what he had preached with a person or two
there and then I realized he had preached something else and it was the
Lord who was opening the scripture to me although I was sitting amongst a
large crowd (this had happened before also). I have shared on how these
miracles were performed in my earlier messages.

The boys mentioned in these incidents are made heroes and hymns are sung to
praise them (their sacrifice) not realizing these lads were simple street
vendors selling food to travelers. During those days loaves of bread were
the size of today’s pizza (8 to 10 inches diameter) and was sufficient for
an adult person’s meal. Fried fish was the extra delicacy to a barley loaf
and these were their favorite fast food. Also Jesus and His team did not
take these for free but must have paid these lads for what they gave
because we read they were discussing to going to the nearest town to
purchasing food for all (they had two hundred pennies in their ministry
kitty bag).

Let us not add/remove emotions nor facts to scriptures and be careful of
what people have added/deleted of scriptures, be it Preachers, Teachers or
translators. Therefore it is important we study various translations,
manuscripts and thus learn biblical languages, at the same time study
history and lifestyle of those who lived during that era.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God. You are Perfect and your Word is Perfect. Lord
help us understand when we add or remove from scriptures we land
questioning your perfection thus liable for judgment. We pray You open our
eyes to the importance to studying scriptures to it very depth and trust
people less than we trust You. Help us remove the idols we have made of
Preachers, Teachers, Evangelists, Prophets, Healers, Bishops, Church
leaders in general...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Making Christianity into a worldly religion

John 8:8,9 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they
which heard [it], being convicted by [their own] conscience, went out one
by one, beginning at the eldest, [even] unto the last: and Jesus was left
alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

The early Church (300AD-500AD) did some of the greatest damages to
Christianity. We find most of the heretic texts were written in this
period, like the Gospels of Mary Magdalene, Thomas, Judas etc... We also
see grave heretic doctrines like declaring Mary the mother of Jesus as
‘Mother of God’ and the pagan terminology ‘Trinity’ used to describe the
Godhead and His triune existence as Father, Son and Spirit were some of the
major inductions done during this period. If one studies Islam one will
find its cause of existence is due to some of these doctrines. It proves
Revelation scriptures of this (Catholic) Church being called the ‘Mother of
all fornications’.

Also during these era some (3) changes were made to the Bible and got
carried unto today and these were identified only of late with findings of
older manuscripts. These changes were done deliberate to push some sinister
doctrines of the Catholic Church into Christianity. Today these very topics
are the most debated by Christians just because they have found deep roots
into our belief. In the new major translations one will not find these
scriptures.

Today’ verse is from amongst these added scriptures (John 8:3-11). John
8:12 was regarding the teachings which Jesus gave on the mount of Olive and
stated in Matthew. The intention of adding this fictitious incident (John
8:3-11) was to could the doctrine of judging / judgment which is key to
spiritual growth.

Judging / discerning is like teeth which allow us to consume spiritual
meat. There are some things we do not judge and some things we are called
to judge. Today most Christians believe we should not judge anyone (in any
way) and that is been achieved by this incident inclusion (which also
misleads interpretations of other scriptures). This mischief was first
identified with Bible word study, the word used for ‘write’ (Latin word) in
today’s scripture (not found elsewhere in the NT) was a term not used
during or before the time of Jesus or the Apostles but came up much later.

We as Christians are not called to judge / discern people if they are saved
or not, if we do we are putting ourselves in the Christ’s place and then
our righteousness will be questioned. We are called to judge / discern the
words and deeds of people. We are called to correct them, also protect
ourselves and others from false doctrines or wrong influence of others.
When we read the letters of Paul in whole we will find numerous cases to
prove this.

Let us understand the importance of discerning, it was for this that the
people of Berea checked Paul’s teachings with scriptures and were found to
be more mature than others, so much so Paul did not write any letters to
guide them.

The other modifications in the NT are
Mathew 17:21 (the word ‘fasting’ was added)
1 John 5:8 (this verse did not exist before)
These I will take up as and when the Lord leads me to do so.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are God and You are Holy God. You Lord are perfect and your Word
is perfect like You. Evil people try hard to malign You and your Word so
that their guilt does not condemn them of their evil. Lord we pray that the
eyes of people open to the truth. We pray grow spiritually and learn to
discern all things which judging no person’s salvation...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Hebrews 5:14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age,
[even] those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern
both good and evil.

Matthew 16:3 And in the morning, [It will be] foul weather to day: for the
sky is red and lowring. O [ye] hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the
sky; but can ye not [discern] the signs of the times?

1 Corinthians 5:12-13
12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye
judge them that are within?
13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among
yourselves that wicked person.

1 Corinthians 5:1-5

Romans 14:13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge
this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in
[his] brother’s way.

2 Timothy 4:14 Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward
him according to his works:

1 John 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and
the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

Only Disciples enter Heaven

John 15:8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall
ye be my disciples.

In today’s message we see Jesus relates bearing of Fruits to being His
disciple, in other words without following Jesus there is no way anyone can
bear the Fruits of the Spirit.

In all religions we find people showing what they call as ‘love’,
‘compassion’, ‘longsuffering’, ‘faith’, ‘peace’, ‘joy’, ‘meekness’,
‘gentleness’ and ‘purity’ but when one digs deeper into them, like the
reason why (past), intension behind it (present), purpose for doing it
(future), etc. one sees vanity. Without God or without knowing God man
cannot bear Fruits and thus what they bear may seem like Fruit of the
Spirit but in reality is not.

The seed that identifies a child of God from others is the Fruit of the
Spirit (mostly faith). Having the seed does not mean we have the Fruit, for
that we need to change our lifestyle (die to ourselves), we need to be
Christians. When Jesus said if a person does not lose his or her life for
the sake of the Gospel will not find it, it did not mean one needed to
become a martyr but more of dying to oneself by killing one’s worldly
desires and putting on the desires of the Kingdom of God.

Christianity is not a belief or religion but more a lifestyle which emits
Christ. We are Christians by not just what we have in our heads but more by
the way we live our lives. As disciples of Jesus we are to live a sober
lifestyle that does mean we need to wear rags, it means we need to blend in
society not under playing nor over playing it. But then if we are living in
a surrounding that is too carnal then we are called to move out of it.

Heaven is shown as made of 12 gems mentioned in Revelation and also in the
books of Moses these gems are shown as those which represented the 12
tribes. If one has some gemology knowledge and understanding of Bible
symbolism, one will see they represent the 12 Fruits of the Spirit (9 in
Galatians 5:22-23 and 3 in Ephesians 5:9. So the key requirement to enter
Heaven is the Fruits of the Spirit.

Adam and Eve when they sinned lost 2 Fruits (Righteousness and Truth) and
thus were removed from accessing Heaven so that man can be restored these
Fruits and gain access again. Truth we get from the Holy Spirit (Spirit of
Truth) and Righteousness from the Son (on Judgment Day only if we have the
Truth). Holiness is what we receive from the Father when we enter Heaven.
These Fruits being gifted to us thus are not mentioned by Paul in Galatians
but mentioned separately in Ephesians.

We may not know the whole truth but know just some part of it is
sufficient. Knowing does not mean just knowledge but means understanding
and understanding comes with practical application. We need to follow the
Holy Spirit (abide in the Spirit of the Son) to know the truth.

By our faith in Christ we receive a token/promise of the Holy Spirit. We
see this with the Apostles in whom Jesus breathe and said ‘receive my
Spirit’ but were baptized in Him only at Pentecost. The word Spirit in
Hebrew means breathe and symbolizes Life, so if we have the Spirit/Life of
God then can we be living a worldly lives?

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God and there is none like You. You alone are Perfect
and You are Light. Lord we pray as your children we may project your light
by our lifestyle. Let our faith not be just knowledge in the head but real
projecting in our lifestyle. Show us Lord the way of living a Christian
lifestyle irrespective of the country and society we live in...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

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

Galatians 5:22-23
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,
gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

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

John 15:5-8
5 I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in
him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered;
and men gather them, and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned.
7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will,
and it shall be done unto you.
8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be
my disciples.

Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever
shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.

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

Fulfilment of Scriptures – choosing of Judas

John 6:70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of
you is a devil?

Everything Jesus did was always to fulfil the will of the Father or fulfil
scriptures (leaving for the one incident of converting water to grape juice
at Cana wedding, which He did under persistence of His mother and till
today it is misunderstood and misused).

In today’s message we read Jesus knew Judas would betray Him yet He chose
him as one of the twelve just to fulfil scriptures. Theologians most quote
Psalms 41:9 or Psalms 55:12 but they do not realize even in the books of
Moses the twelve tribes of Israel were a shadow of the 12 Apostles and
there too Joseph withdraws from taking the journey to the Promised Land and
only his bones are taken. He gave up his right for fame and glory of this
world, to the extent when he died it is not written he was gathered unto
his fathers/ people like other Men of God are. He gave up his rights for
worldly reasons unlike his brethren who themselves did not physically enter
like Moses, but when they died they were gathered unto their
fathers/people.

There are times I think of my Calling in the Lord and try to take for
granted my salvation, but then incidents like that of Judas or Joseph from
the Bible remind me what if the Lord may have chosen knowing and I may be
amongst those who fail.

Everyone is a testimony and our testimony may be that of Peter, Paul or
that of Judas, Joseph. Paul warned us not to take or salvation for granted
but to work it with fear and trembling. Even Paul knew we are saved by
grace through faith, but faith is not a switch with on and off options, one
needs to not only keep the faith but also grow in it and that is not easy
so for that works of faith are required with the help of the Holy Spirit.
James says faith alone without works (not works of righteousness but works
of faith) is dead and dead faith cannot save us.

I always remind myself David did not allow the blind and the lame to enter
Zion which symbolizes Kingdom of God. Knowing the truth and walking in it
will not help us enter the Kingdom of God. The virgins with oil in the lamp
had to keep the lamp burning until the coming of the bride, they did not
fill the lamp with oil and wait for the bride to come so as to lite it.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty and All Knowing God. Even though You know all things
yet You chose those whom would not enter your Kingdom. Your Word says the
entrance to your Kingdom are narrow, many will come but few will enter.
Lord we pray we do not take our salvation for granted but keep working to
keep our faith alive and growing in You...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Psalms 109:8 Let his days be few; [and] let another take his office.

Psalms 41:9 Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did
eat of my bread, hath lifted up [his] heel against me.

Psalms 55:12 For [it was] not an enemy [that] reproached me; then I could
have borne [it]: neither [was it] he that hated me [that] did magnify
[himself] against me; then I would have hid myself from him:

Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as
in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own
salvation with fear and trembling.

Genesis 50:26 So Joseph died, [being] an hundred and ten years old: and
they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.

Hebrews 11:22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing
of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.

James 2:24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by
faith only.

James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without
works is dead also.

2 Samuel 5:8 And David said on that day, Whosoever getteth up to the
gutter, and smiteth the Jebusites, and the lame and the blind, [that are]
hated of David’s soul, [he shall be chief and captain]. Wherefore they
said, The blind and the lame shall not come into the house.

Stumbling due to lack of truth

John 11:10 But if a man [someone] walks in the night, he stumbleth,
because there is no light in him.

When we read today’s scripture, normally a person thinks it speaks of a
person stumbling (physically) because of lack of light, but when we read
carefully it does not talk of external (natural) light but speaks of light
within, which is truth.

People normally make blunt statements ‘I have Christ in me’, ‘I have the
Holy Spirit in me’ or ‘the truth resides in me’. They do not understand the
day we the fullness of Christ in us we become Sons of God and thus fulfill
the requirement for Christ to come again. Scriptures says God found it
pleasing to dwell only in Jesus Christ in fullness.

Identical twins who look alive and at times think alike, they too are
different in many ways. One will not say he or she knows the other 100% and
can even predict their next move or thought every time.

Knowing the truth is like starting a journey to a destination. The more one
travels in the right direction the more one comes near to know the (whole)
truth and whenever the person moves in the opposite direction the more one
is far from the truth. Truth is not received by just study of scriptures
but more by following of scriptures since it is the Holy Spirit who reveals
the truth to those who follow it and what He reveals is what we share
amongst ourselves. Even though we may share what we have received but that
does not mean that person will know the truth unless that person abides by
it. We read in Romans faith comes by hearing and listening to the Word of
God, faith is nothing but holding on to the truth, since only truth does
not change (God and His Word) holding on to anything thing else is hope and
not faith.

The requirement for us to go to Heaven are the Fruits of Truth and
Righteousness (which Adam and Eve lost and thus were denied access). The
Holy Spirit gives us the Fruit of Truth and on Judgment Day those who have
the truth is them will receive the Fruit of Righteousness from the Son.

Truth is symbolized in the OT by the pomegranate fruit which the Lord
commanded the Israelites to illustrate on the Tabernacle curtains and
Priest robes. The fruit if opens has multiple seedlings which if observed
are unique in shape and thus would not fit in any other place other than
where it was removed from. Also the whole fruits is divide into sections
which are separated by a thin membrane. Truth is to be applied in different
areas of our live, the right area we apply in we find ourselves strong and
thus do not stumble but the areas we do not we stumble.

Stumbling is not exclusive to those little is spirit, no doubt the more we
grow in the Lord (truth) we will stumble less but yet we can stumble and
thus wisdom is in fellowshipping with others mature in spirit so that they
hold us up in areas where we are weak. Also spiritual maturing is in
checking how much we have grown in knowing the Lord (truth) over time, if
we are not growing then we are backsliding and prone to stumble.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are God and You alone are perfect for You alone are Holy. You Lord
are light and darkness came when some Angels that fell resisted You. Your
Word too is light for it is Truth and it is your Word that becomes the
light within us to overcome the darkness that exist. Lord we pray we
understand the importance of not only studying your Word but following it
with the help of the Holy Spirit so that it becomes light within us. Help
us to grow in all areas so that we do not stumble...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Romans 10:17 So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of
God.

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

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

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

Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

Revelation 11:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto
them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their
enemies beheld them.

Post  Admin on Wed 03 Jul 2019, 11:47 pm

Difference between Human Judgment and God’s Judgment

Mark 15:6 Now at [that] feast he released unto them one prisoner,
whomsoever they desired.

Yesterday a Muslim person (in a Christian FB group) asked, how one man
could wipe away the sins of the many who believe in Him. Since I could not
go into depth I answered him in short how Jesus made peace between God and
man so that we receive His Spirit. It is the Spirit of God who transforms
us and since we are transformed in spirit and no longer the old person
hence we are not liable for the penalty of the old person. God does not
punish those who do not believe in Him, it is their own sins that they
suffer in the prison called Hell. Those who believe and do not transform
(born again in spirit) are the ones who are punished on Judgment Day. They
are punished not for their sins but for rejecting the Will / Word of the
Father and this punishment is worse than those who suffer their sins.

At the end he asked can God be unjust by not punishing people for their
sins!

Today’s shows the Jews had some (four) festivals which were very important
and one amongst them was the Paschal feast and to show sensitivity towards
the Jews the Romans as a custom would release one prisoner, whosoever they
desired. Imagine the prisoner who did some of the greatest crime gets set
free! How would he feel?

People compare this to the situation between Jesus Christ and God the
Father due to which we are set free. This may be the way humans think but
not the way God does.

Firstly God has no agenda to punish sinners like human rulers, He agenda is
to save sinners from suffering what sin would do to them, for it is their
own sins which punishes them. A sinner who is corrupted (not whole) in
spirit cannot dwell before God thus to save the sinner, he needs to be
transformed and made whole. Each one will never be able to become perfect
so God is allowed all as one to be made perfect and what binds them
together is repentance in Christ. So every soul that is in repentance
(change towards good – whatever little it may be) unto his sleep in Christ
is part of the body which is called the Bride of Christ. All this happens
only by the power of the Holy Spirit thus baptism in Jesus Christ and His
Spirit are both essential.

God is truly merciful and is not man to judge sinners. Even on Judgment Day
Christ sits on the Judgment Seat not as God but as Son of Man and for this
as man He had to prove His righteousness. Those who have the Fruit of Truth
in them (which they receive from the Holy Spirit) will be give the Fruit of
Righteousness (the two Fruits Adam and Eve lost and thus were deprived
access to Heaven) and thus allowed to enter Heaven so to have access to the
Tree / River of Life so as to enjoy eternal life.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God and You are Merciful God. You are always the
same. It is in your mercy that You removed man from access to Heaven so
that he does not perish due to his corruption before You. You made a way
for man to be restored of this corruption and become whole by your Spirit
for which a part of You as man had to pay a price so as the make peace
between You and man. Lord may we truly understand the sacrifice of Christ
and the importance of the Holy Spirit. May we understand unless we are not
transformed from within by the Fruit of Truth which we receive from the
Spirit of Truth we will not be able to enter Heaven...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Ephesians 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath
broken down the middle wall of partition

1 John 3:24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he
in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he
hath given us.

John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be
born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

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

John 5:25-27
25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when
the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall
live.
26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to
have life in himself;
27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is
the Son of man.

Right Interpretation of Scriptures is Very Important

Luke 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt
thou be with me in paradise.

Biblical language study is very critical for understanding of scriptures.
Along with biblical languages study we also need to do cross reference
study. In both Hebrew and Greek languages many a times a word or its
grammar can be rendered in multiple ways so its meanings can differentiate,
at times the difference is so large that it can results in opposite of the
truth thus it is only through cross reference we can confirm the right
understanding.

Today’s scripture is one amongst the most misunderstood scriptures. The
misinterpretation of one single word ‘today’ of this scripture has caused
many to be misled in the Kingdom of God.

In English we have the word ‘today’ but in languages like Greek the word
‘semeron’ means ‘this day’, ‘that day’, ‘which day’. If we look the context
of the discussion and confirm it with other scriptures we will understand
the right meaning of this word.

In the scripture we read about the conversation between the two criminals
crucified on the either sides of Jesus, the one on the left mocks Jesus
while the one of the right condemns him and then speaks to Jesus saying
‘Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom’ and to this Jesus
says “símeron met᾽ emoú ési en tó paradeíso” and this scripture can be
translated as ‘to day shalt thou be with me in paradise’ only of Jesus
ascended that day to Paradise/Heaven (the word Paradise means garden and
refers to Garden of Eden which is on Heaven). If we read John 20:17 Jesus
on the third day when He resurrected tells Mary Magdalene not to touch Him
because He has yet not ascended to the Father, but later on the eight day
He allows Thomas to touch Him. Peter too confirms in his letter Jesus went
to Hell / prison after His crucifixion and preached there to the souls
after His death.

Today most Preachers are misled that on the death of a Believer the person
immediately ascends to Heaven. We also have many misleading people sharing
testimonies of their spirit visiting Heaven and returning back to the body.
They do this also because of their misunderstanding of Paul sharing of his
revelation of seeing Heaven, where it seem so real that he got confused for
a moment that he had physically visited it. In his later letters to
Corinth, Romans and Thessalonians he does confirm all of us will stand
before the Judgment Seat when Christ comes again.

Jesus Himself says in Gospel of John that the Father chose Him to sit on
the Judgment Seat because He is the Son of Man (God does not judge us but
His Righteous One does) and this He would do on Judgment Day when He comes
again with His Angels/Saints.

Let us go by scriptures alone and study them ourselves then to follow what
people say about it. Paul considered the people of Berea mature thus did
not write any letter of instructions to them because they did not accept
anything and everything Paul told them but confirmed it with scriptures.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are God and You are Holy. Everything about You is perfect and thus
your Word too is perfect. You Lord in your wisdom used man to deliver your
Word. Even though many were just average people yet it was your Spirit that
made it possible to bring perfection in the delivery of your Word. We pray
Lord we trust not man but your Word alone and study it so that your Spirit
may reveal its truth...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Luke 23:39-43
39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If
thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God,
seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but
this man hath done nothing amiss.
42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy
kingdom.
43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be
with me in paradise.

John 20:16-17,24-27
16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him,
Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
17 Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my
Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father,
and your Father; and [to] my God, and your God.
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 finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his
side, I will not believe.
26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with
them: [then] came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and
said, Peace [be] unto you.
27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands;
and reach hither thy hand, and thrust [it] into my side: and be not
faithless, but believing.

John 5:26-29
26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to
have life in himself;
27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is
the Son of man.
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are
in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection
of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

1 Peter 3:18-20
18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust,
that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but
quickened by the Spirit:
19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God
waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few,
that is, eight souls were saved by water.

2 Corinthians 12:1-5
1 It is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions
and revelations of the Lord.
2 I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I
cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such
an one caught up to the third heaven.
3 And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I
cannot tell: 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 Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine
infirmities.

Matthew 11:22 But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and
Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.

Matthew 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall
speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

Romans 14:10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at
nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of
Christ.

Christ; that every one may receive the things [done] in [his] body,
according to that he hath done, whether [it be] good or bad.

Romans 2:16 In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus
Christ according to my gospel.

Hebrews 10:30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance [belongeth] unto
me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his
people.

Matthew 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father
with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

Revelation 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death
and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged
every man according to their works.

Acts 17:10-12
10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto
Berea: who coming [thither] went into the synagogue of the Jews.
11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received
the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily,
whether those things were so.
12 Therefore many of them believed; also of honourable women which were
Greeks, and of men, not a few.

Believing fables

2 Timothy 4:4 And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and
shall be turned unto fables.

Today’s message talks of people believing not the truth but fables. When we
think of believing fables we think this pertains to only pagan beliefs and
not to Christianity.

The Greek word fable comes from the root word ‘mysteries’ or ‘hidden
things’.

Yesterday I was talking to some Catholics who were confident of going to
Heaven. I asked what gave them the confidence and they said it is because
they believed in Jesus Christ and they did what He Commanded. When I asked
what is that He Commanded and they said to carry His cross daily. I was
taken back so at their answer (mind you I was talking to teenagers) so I
asked what they understood by the term cross and they said suffering, pain
and persecution!

Amongst Christians also we have fables believing stories made by man due to
our ignorance of scriptures. The Greek word for ‘cross’ comes from the root
word ‘cause’ and thus when Jesus said ‘take up your cross and follow me’,
it did not mean suffering due to sickness, pain in relationships caused due
to misunderstandings or hurts due to our ego etc. He said daily taking the
mission He gave us which is to reach out to the lost, teaching them the
Word and making them disciples for Christ so as to do what we do and what
Christ did.

If one scrutinizes every area of our so called Church beliefs and
traditions, one will find lots and lots of fables. One wonders how did
these come into the Christian belief system and who would think of doing
such a think?

Today’s message Paul warned Timothy long back about people not enduring the
truth so they would add fables. Paul was not talking of non-Christians to
Timothy but of Christians. Paul was not talking of end days but about the
near future.

Since 300AD we had a tsunami of fables ignited under ‘Christian’ banner and
many of them found their way into the main stream ‘Christian’ belief
system. Even after the ‘Reformation’ movement still a large amount of
fables still continues. So like Paul advised Timothy, let us harken to the
advice, let us test every belief even if we are afflicted for it and all
what we preach let us give a proof of it both scripturally and life example..

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God. You Lord are Holy, Righteous and Truth. You,
Lord desire man also to be holy, righteous and filled with the truth. It is
only when we are in You and You in us that we will know the truth, received
righteousness and holiness. We pray Lord we test everything that we believe
especially those which in your name and not in your Word. Help us to
cleanse all that is not of You...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Luke 9:23 And he said to [them] all, If any [man] will come after me, let
him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.

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

2 Timothy 4:3-5
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but
after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having
itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be
turned unto fables.
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an
evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

Proverbs 1:32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the
prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

1 Timothy 1:4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which
minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith:

Cleansing before breaking of bread

John 11:55 And the Jews’ passover was nigh at hand: and many went out of
the country up to Jerusalem before the passover, to purify themselves.

We know Jesus broke bread at the Last Supper was a celebration of the Feast
of Unleavened Bread. In the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke it is
mentioned as ‘Passover Week’ or simply ‘Passover’ but in John we read it as
the ‘Jew’s Passover’.

According to the book(s) of Moses the Lord had instructed the Israelites to
celebrate the Passover on the fourteenth day of the first month (since they
followed the moon cycle it always coincided with the week - approximate 28
days). The feast was of 6 days and started in the evening of the previous
Sabbath. On that day they bought a lamb of 1 year into the house (they
could chose a young of a goat or older depending on size of the household)
but one thing they would make sure is that the lamb/goat had no blemish and
for this they would monitor the animal for 5 days. It was on the fifth day
they would kill the animal and eat it with bitter herbs. The next day was a
High Sabbath followed by the regular Sabbath (Jesus fulfilled this since He
was arrested on Sat evening and killed on Thursday evening).

It was after the Passover that they would celebrate a week of the Feast of
Unleavened Bread. During that week they were allowed neither to consume nor
keep leaven in the house. Even the wine was unfermented thus simple grape
juice.

During the exile of Israel in Babylon due to restrictions the Jews
overlapped both these weeks and celebrated them together and thus we see
John’s Gospel states it as Jew’s Passover and not as the Lord’s Passover.

Today’s scripture also points to the fact that they had to cleanse
themselves by asking the Lord forgiveness before celebrating the Passover
and for that they would go to the High Priest who would prayer over them
and intercede for forgiveness on their behalf. For forgiveness one was
advised to reconcile with the person sinned against, going to the priest
for forgiveness was the last option given by the Lord since the people were
far for God (Catholics have bypassed all the steps in between with their
‘Sacrament of Confession’, it also confirms they are far from God). Jesus
being ‘Son of God’ (not to confused with ‘God the Son’ which also He was)
had the authority to forgive sins and gave this authority to His disciples
who are called to be Sons of God. So now any man or woman in Christ can
forgive sins on behalf of the Lord.

In the OT the sacrifice was made after the sins were forgiven, while in NT
we see the sins were forgiven first and then the sacrifice made. The change
between the two situations was the presence of truth and faith. In the OT
the truth was hidden from almost all but in the NT with the coming of
Christ truth was revealed through the Holy Spirit thus faith was possible
(faith means believing in the truth - Jesus said ‘I am the Truth’). So we
see Jesus did not break the Law by celebrating the Feast of Unleavened
Bread with His disciples before the Passover (where He was the Paschal
Lamb). What is also important to understand is Jesus fulfilled the process
of forgiveness of sins of gilt by washing of the feet of His disciples as
He broke bread with them thus preparing them to receive the Paschal Lamb.

Every time we break bread let us understand how privileged we are to
celebrate the Lord’s Supper (the Feast of Unleavened Bread) and to receive
the Paschal Lamb. Let us also not mock this privilege by receiving it in an
unworthy manner. Let us respect these emblems which manifest in the Spirit.

In an emblem some things can be changed but some things cannot be changed.
Like any national emblem the size is not fixed but shape, design and color
are fixed, changing anyone of them would cause the emblem to not represent
that country. So also is with the bread at Lord’s Table, it was unleavened
bread and not leavened bread, or wafer, or oiled cake (like Indian roti).

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God. You are Holy God and no being that is corrupted
by sin of otherwise can dwell before You. Lord we thank You that we can
come in your presence even though we are still corrupt because You have
humbled yourself for our sake. Lord we pray we also understand we need to
be transformed in spirit because You will return to your glory and thus we
would need to be free of corruption. We pray we respect the emblem of bread
broken at your table, which is for forgiveness of our sins of guilt...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
2 Chronicles 30:18 For a multitude of the people, [even] many of Ephraim,
and Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, had not cleansed themselves, yet did
they eat the passover otherwise than it was written. But Hezekiah prayed
for them, saying, The good LORD pardon every one

Numbers 5:6-8
6 Speak unto the children of Israel, When a man or woman shall commit any
sin that men commit, so as to trespass against Jehovah, and that soul shall
be guilty;
7 then he shall confess his sin which he hath done: and he shall make
restitution for his guilt in full, and add unto it the fifth part thereof,
and give it unto him in respect of whom he hath been guilty.
8 But if the man have no kinsman to whom restitution may be made for the
guilt, the restitution for guilt which is made unto Jehovah shall be the
priest’s; besides the ram of the atonement, whereby atonement shall be made
for him.

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

1 Corinthians 11:27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat the bread or drink the
cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the
blood of the Lord.

 No sense of time?

John 16:16 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little
while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.

One will find almost every second Preacher preaching about Jesus coming
again soon like in a year or two and this has been going on since hundreds
of years. Cults like Jehovah’s Witnesses have been formed on these false
alarms and even though their founders’ given dates failed time and again
yet the members continue to follow them.

Today’s message talks of Jesus’ death and resurrection where He was not
visible for 2 and half day. After that for almost 40days He was present
with His disciples before ascending to the Heaven. Bible says when He
ascended to Heaven after 40days an Angels saying ‘He will come again as He
left’, that means as a man. Before in between He had ascended to the Father
because immediately on His resurrection He forbids Mary Magdalene from
touching Him since He had not ascended to the Father but later in the
evening He allows His disciples like Thomas to touch Him. The completion of
the sacrifices was done only in the Holy of Holies.

Jesus said no being (man or Angels) including Himself knew the day He will
come again (Judgment Day) other than God (the Father). He said this even
though He had claimed He and Father are one and He was God the Son. He was
not lying on both factors because at the current state He had humbled
Himself and was mere man and all He knew was from scriptures. When He
returns to the Father He will be restored of His glory and will become one
with the Father from whom He came. His coming again thus has to be only
after the completion of His work (salvation of man), fulfilment of the Word
(every prophecy) and crushing of Satan (man overcoming evil).

Yesterday someone had posted on FB a young girl claiming to been told by
the Lord that Jesus would come soon. Let us not be taken by false preaching
and people ignorant of scriptures, they only cause distraction and delay in
doing our job and thus actually try to delay the coming of Christ. If we
really desire Him to come soon let us fulfil at least one of the conditions
that is to preach the Gospel to the ends of the world. Also let us be
prepared for His coming because anytime we sleep, we will rise on His
coming again to stand before Him and that would be like just a moment.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty and All-knowing God, nothing is impossible to You and
hidden from You. You love man thus await man to overcome darkness before
fulfilment of punishment of those in darkness. Lord we pray we do not get
distracted by the ‘End-Time Preachers’. Help us to concentrate in doing the
mission given to us so that we do not delay your coming...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no one, not even the angels
of heaven, neither the Son, but the Father only.

Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the
whole world for a testimony unto all the nations; and then shall the end
come.

Matthew 13:49 So shall it be in the end of the world: the angels shall
come forth, and sever the wicked from among the righteous,

The Three and The Four Lies of Judah

Amos 2:4 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Judah, and for
four, I will not turn away [the punishment] thereof; because they have
despised the law of the LORD, and have not kept his commandments, and their
lies caused them to err, after the which their fathers have walked:

Yesterday we saw about symbolism of the snake and of rain today’s scripture
uses Bible numeric as symbolism. Three symbolizes wholeness of God
(Godhead) and four symbolizes earth or this creation. Israel symbolizes
Sons/Princes of the Lord and Judah the people of God (the flock – including
sheep and goats).

Today’s message speaks of the lies of Judah which their fathers too
followed. The ‘three lies’ refer to spiritual beliefs/traditions and ‘four
lies’ refer to worldly beliefs/traditions which the people of God and their
fathers followed in His name.

Yesterday I saw a video of a couple preaching to God’s people and what they
spoke had nothing to do with God, His Word or His Kingdom. They only were
taking the name of the Lord and praising people and buttering them up to
believe they will be blessed in worldly riches. Worldly riches are not evil
but are a test to those who have it and this test has cause many to fall;
very, very few have managed riches and remained in the Lord.

Today’s message says the Lord will bring fire on His people because of
their beliefs. So let us cleanse ourselves of wrong beliefs that we carry
thinking we are following the Lord instructions. The only reason we fall in
this trap is because we do not test everything we believe with the Word of
God. Discernment is like teeth and eating without discerning is like
swallowing everything we consume. If the things are small and easy
digestible it may not harm us, but many things will harm us either
immediately or on the long run.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty and Loving Father. A father who does not chastise is
children is not a concerned father. Lord in this chastising help us to see
your love, but above all help us to correct ourselves and clean ourselves
of the lies that we follow just because our fathers did taking your name...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Amos 2:4-5
4 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I
will not turn away [the punishment] thereof; because they have despised the
law of the LORD, and have not kept his commandments, and their lies caused
them to err, after the which their fathers have walked:
5 But I will send a fire upon Judah, and it shall devour the palaces of
Jerusalem.

Luke 11:47-48
47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your
fathers killed them.
48 Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they
indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.

John 6:49 Your fathers did eat manna {Word without understanding} in the
wilderness, and are dead.

Post  Admin on Sun 30 Jun 2019, 9:48 pm

Speaking to the rich

John 8:20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the
temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.

In today’s message we read of Jesus sharing with the Jews in the treasury
where ‘free will’ offerings were given. This was over the ‘tithe’ which the
Jews gave.

The statutes of tithe (10 percent) instructed by the Lord is not understood
even today amongst Christians and amongst the Jews it is a law, like paying
tax to a government, which will cause the authority to take action if not
paid or venerated if more is given.

Many Catholics do not become ‘Protestants’ and at times revert back to
Catholicism because of tithes. Over and above tithes the ‘Protestant’
Church collects ‘free will’ offering which indirectly is to bribe God so
that they receive ‘hundred folds’ / ‘thousand folds’ from Him. Some of the
scriptures that they (mis)quote for this are Luke 6:38 which actually talks
of forgiveness and they interpret it as monetary blessing, Malachi 3:10
which talks of supporting expansion of God’s Kingdom and God will bless
them spiritual (‘meat in my house’) and they interpret it as ‘food/money in
their house’.

People give to the Lord out of greed, the very thing the concept of tithe
is designed by the Lord to overcome. People use the Lord to worship their
worldly lord (carnal self). Riches is not evil but a danger to the soul for
it puts the soul to great tests, on the other hand Christians are not
called to be poor. A Christian is in need because he or she does not know
God and is rich because he or she uses God to worship their worldly god. We
are called to give all that is over our needs to those who are in need. Our
needs may vary according to the purpose of God in our lives and there is a
fine line between wants and needs.

Greed for both material and spiritual things can destroy a person since it
was the first vice that bought down the high Cherub (Lucifer). Not only
worldly riches but even spiritual gifts if sought without purpose to serve
God and His Kingdom can become a cause of disaster instead of blessing.

Today the Lord is talking to those who are worldly blessed and also those
who are spiritually blessed and are not using their blessing to serve the
Kingdom of God, the Lord is telling them they do not know Him and thus will
die in their sins.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are God and Creator of all things. The Heavens are a place of
abundance and everything is always available thus called a banquet yet
Lucifer took more than and he needed and thus pride and other vices came
into him which bought darkness. Lord we pray we who are made to overcome
that darkness may not fall into that same trap of greed and may know the
purpose of giving. We pray we live a sober life and everything we seek
would be for the reason to serve You and your people...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
John 8:19-24
19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye
neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my
Father also.
20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple:
and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.
21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and
shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.
22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I
go, ye cannot come.
23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of
this world; I am not of this world.
24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye
believe not that I am [he], ye shall die in your sins.

Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed
down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your
bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured
to you again.

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

Matthew 19:23-24
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.

Ezekiel 28:15-17
15 Thou [wast] perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created,
till iniquity was found in thee.
16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee
with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane
out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub,
from the midst of the stones of fire.
17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted
thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I
will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

R.D SOUZA Saved by faith  Empty Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Sat 29 Jun 2019, 10:18 pm

Divinity or Man

Mark 14: 13 And he sendeth forth two of his disciples, and saith unto
them, Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher
of water: follow him.

There are some incidents like today’s message that cause people to believe
Jesus as man did possess divine powers (100% God and 100% Man).

Bible says God the Son He humbled Himself and became man, humbling meant He
gave up His glory which meant His divine powers and His divine identity. A
scripture goes to the extent to say He emptied Himself. That does not mean
He become zero for He did not give up His Nature (Father’s Name) and
manifested the Nature/Name so that we know the Father by knowing Him.

As man Jesus was 100percent man, the only thing divine of Him was the
Nature/Name of the Father and by which He said He protects His people. We
have protection/power in the Name / Nature of Jesus / Father, that means
not by speaking the word ‘Jesus’, ‘Iesus’, ‘Joshua’ or ‘Yeshua’, but by
knowing Him and seeking to follow Him.

Jesus as man was totally man thus what all He did as man is what we too can
do. Today’s message shows ‘Word of Knowledge’ or simply ‘Prompting of the
Holy Spirit’ and this is something everyone baptized in the Holy Spirit can
do, it should not be mistaken with Prophesy. Prophesy is always connected
to the Word and since the Word of God is complete what we prophesy is
simply speaking the Word at its appropriate time into our lives, the life
of a specific person or mankind as whole. Word of Knowledge on the other
hand is what is specific to a person, place, time or incident and is just
speaking out what the Lord tells us via dreams, visions, whisper or
thoughts and is not connected to salvation of man.

The Holy Spirit is continually speaking to us and the problem is we are not
tuned to His Voice. Life will not be a surprise if we are in tuned to the
Holy Spirit. It is our worldly desires, our faithlessness, our vices, in
other words our negative things that hinder us from hearing His Voice.

I can share a lot on this because there was time in my life when I was
absolute focused, and during that period I could literately know many
things beforehand not only in my life but also the life of others connected
to me or my ministry (which ever part of the world they were). Anything
that was important was shown to me via dreams or visions and I was always
prepared, so much so I knew at times the darker sides of the life of those
who call themselves Men of God and when I corrected them, it would rattle
them wondering why God would expose them. God exposed these things not to
shame them but for me to learn things of the Kingdom of God which were
hidden.

Today how many Men / Women of God do we fear when we meet them or connect
with them? What ‘Word of Knowledge’ we find them sharing is not even
peanuts or minuscule. If there was even one true Man/Woman of God amongst
us, he or she would change all those connected to him or her and bring the
fear of God upon them and this shows the sad state of affairs in the Church..

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty and All Knowing God. Time and place is not a factor
to You for You are Spirit and You are both Omnipresent and Omnipotent. We
pray we learn to hear the Voice of your Spirit. Help us to live a sober
life void of carnal desires and focused on to your Kingdom...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Philippians 2:5-11
5 Have this mind in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 who, existing in the form of God, counted not the being on an equality
with God a thing to be grasped,
7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in the
likeness of men;
8 and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, becoming
obedient [even] unto death, yea, the death of the cross.
9 Wherefore also God highly exalted him, and gave unto him the name which

Father’s love

Luke 11: 11 If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will
he give him a stone? or if [he ask] a fish, will he for a fish give him a
serpent?

When it comes to love the world shows the mother as a personification of
love but when it comes to the Bible we find it is not the mother but the
father who is an example of love. Like in today’s message when Jesus wanted
show an example to love He chose the father and son relationship, not
mother and son.

In Hebrew the word for father is ‘ab’ and for love is ‘ahab’, without
father love cannot be understood. The worlds were created due to the love
of a Father. God is called ‘El Shaddai’ translated as ‘Almighty God’ but in
reality means ‘Strong Breasted One’ and depicts God giving the love of a
mother also yet God prefers to be called ‘Father’ and not ‘Mother’.

Mothers always speak about carrying the infant in their womb for nine
months but they do not realize the child was as a seed in the father from
the beginning before it took form in the flesh in the womb of the mother.
It was for this reason when generations were to be blessed it was the
father who was blessed. The pain that a mother goes through during labor of
delivering her infant or bringing up her children is mainly due to the
curse that was on Eve (women) and is broken when one claims it in Christ
who broke our curses by making peace between God and man.

I am not against mothers but would like to bring forth facts since the
world has failed to give credit to the fathers.

We need to distinguish between earthly fathers and spiritual Father. In the
Bible even elders were called fathers but they were not spiritual fathers.
One can have spiritual children but not a spiritual father (or mother).
There is only one spiritual father and that is God (Godhead). In Greek the
word father ‘pater’ means creator, protector and provider thus Jesus said
call no man your Father other than the Heavenly Father. We come from the
loins of our fathers yet they did not create us, they simply carried us;
the same with our mothers, we were born as humans in the womb of our
mothers yet she did not create us, she just carried us. Our parents work to
provide and protect us yet they are simply vessels and God is the real
provider and protector.

Let us understand love without Father is never understood. We may
understand worldly love through our mothers but not true love.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are our Father. You created us, You provide for us and You protect
us. We were created in the beginning and were carried in the loins of our
fathers, we took form in the flesh in the wombs of our mothers, they give
us love yet true love comes only from You. You Lord came in the flesh and
manifested love. We pray we give due acknowledgement to our earthly fathers
who represent You in our lives. May we understand his love like we know the
love of our mothers...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Genesis 26:24 And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I
[am] the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I [am] with thee, and
will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham’s sake.

Genesis 3: 16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow
and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy
desire [shall be] to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

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

1 John 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us,
that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us
not, because it knew him not.

All Earthly Relationships End Here

Mark 12:25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor
are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.

When I hear senior Church leaders stating at funerals especially or
otherwise how families will be united in Heaven, how husband will be united
with his wife, son with his father, daughter with mother etc. I feel sad as
to how little they know about the Kingdom of God.

At a Church service I asked the congregation as to who all will dwell with
them in their Heavenly cottage, they immediately jumped to answer ‘family’.
When I asked to elaborate as to who they took a name or two and then
realized what I was getting them to understand. It was then they realized
Heaven has nothing to do with our earthly family or relationships, our
Heavenly family is different and no person in Heaven would be anyone’s
father, mother, husband, wife etc... We also will not be sons and daughter
but will be simply Sons of God for we will be (like) Angels who have no
natural gender.

Angels are spirit beings and do not have flesh like man although they can
take form of man in the flesh. Angels appear as beings of light and since
they also made in the image of God (thus called Sons of God) but unlike man
did not corrupt themselves thus have somewhat bodyline form of man (with a
little variation). Spirit beings are not governed by natural forces like
gravity, distance, volume, earthly time, direction etc. thus may seem like
flying and appear in various sizes.

Heaven is not an earthly resort and they description given in the Bible is
symbolic. We who will dwell there after Judgment Day will not have a body
of flesh and the renewed body that the Bible speaks of is a spiritual body
which is our inner-man since it is the shape and form of our spirit being
and the beauty of it is defined by the Fruits of the Spirit.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God. You dwell in the Highest Heavens thus called the
Mountains of Zion. Lord we pray your people overcome the natural mind and
thinking so that they see the beauty of your Kingdom. Let not the temporary
earthly things, desires and relationships hold us back from entering your
Kingdom. Help us see and reach out to our Heavenly family...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 10:33-37
33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my
Father which is in heaven.
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send
peace, but a sword.
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the
daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in
law.
36 And a man’s foes [shall be] they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and
he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.

Matthew 19:29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or
sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my
name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting
life.

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

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

Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels
for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the
grace of God should taste death for every man.

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

1 Timothy 5:21 I charge [thee] before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and
the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one
before another, doing nothing by partiality.

2 Thessalonians 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the
Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

1 Thessalonians 3:13 To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in
holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus
Christ with all his saints.

Jezreel – the Lord Sows

Hosea 2:22 And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil;
and they shall hear Jezreel {Lord sows}.

Today’s message talks of the time (after Christ) when the Lord accepts the
people other than Israelites as His people and He manifests His glory
amongst them.

What we read in today message it speaks of 3 things which will get
manifested amongst His people, the word used here is corn, wine and oil.
These are natural things and the scripture says these come via the Heavens
so we need to understand the spiritual understanding of these words.

In Hebrew these words have a root meaning/symbolism which gives the true
understanding of this scripture.

Corn – comes from the root meaning ‘multiplication’ or ‘increase’.
Wine – comes from the root meaning ‘inherit’ or ‘take possession of’
Oil – symbolizes testimony

The Hebrew word for Olive means ‘brightness’ and olive tree symbolizes
God’s people so olive oil their testimony (fig tree symbolizes worldly
people). When Jesus/Paul/James said anoint people with (olive) oil and pray
over them they actually meant to share testimonies of God’s favors before
praying over them but many Church leaders foolishly sell/use bottled oil
for anointing.

Today’s message tells us the Lord had promised a multiplication of
spiritual gifting (like blessings and gifts of the Spirit) so we should see
greater Prophets, Teachers, Healers, Evangelists etc... The scripture also
says we have being promised inheritance of God’s Kingdom and if we are
inheritors of a greater Kingdom than our lives here should not be of
problems or discomfort. Problems may try to disturb us since this world
hates God but we will not be disturbed by them. The scripture goes on to
say we will be blessed with testimonies. The scripture ends with the term
Jerzeel which means ‘God sows’.

Today’s message says we do not truly say God sows in our lives because we
have not experienced His multiplication (corn), His inheritance (wine) and
His testimonies (oil) in our lives. God’s Word is eternal and true so the
problem is not with God doing something. He has already done it all for us
from the beginning, what stops it from manifesting in our lives is us. It
is our faithlessness, our disobedience, our lethargic life and our
spiritual blindness.

Let us open our spiritual eyes and get our act together so that we see the
manifestation of God’s promise in our lives; we will be blessed with corn,
wine and oil.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God. You and your Word is true and eternal. You do
not change nor does your Word change. We pray Lord we may see the
manifestation of your promise in our lives, may we remove the hindrances we
have put into our lives that stops us from receiving. We pray our eyes be
opened, our lameness healed and our hearts set right...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Hosea 2:21-23
21 And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, saith the LORD, I
will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the earth;
22 And the earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they
shall hear Jezreel.
23 And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her
that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to [them which were] not my
people, Thou [art] my people; and they shall say, [Thou art] my God.

Genesis 8:11 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her
mouth [was] an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were
abated from off the earth.

Leviticus 24:2 Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee
pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually..

Revelation 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks
standing before the God of the earth.

James 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the
church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of
the Lord:

King of the Jews!

John 19:21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not,
The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.

When we look at the relationship between Jesus and the Jews the term ‘King
of the Jews’ takes an interesting phase. When Jesus was asked if He was the
King of the Jews, He did not deny nor accept it.

In the OT there is no prophecy about ‘King of the Jews’ but these is about
King of Jerusalem and also Lion of Judah. The term ‘King of the Jews’ was
first used by the Wise-men /‘Magus’ who came to give respects to a king
just born.

We normally use the term Jews for people who follow Judaism which is not a
belief approved by God and was against the Law of the Lord even though they
refer to His books and claim to follow the Law of Moses (Law given by the
Lord through Moses) but due to their lack of understanding of scriptures
they did things contrary to scriptures and were part of the false Church
(the first daughter of the whore while the Catholic Church being the second
daughter). The term Jews comes from the word Judah and spoke about the
people who dwelled in Judah. Jesus as Lion (symbolizing Righteous one) of
Judah was King of Judah (people of praise) but was not the king of the
Jewish people (who follow Judaism) and it was for this reason He did not
deny it nor accepted it.

Jesus as man in flesh was the Prince of Peace and Prince of Israel (Sons of
God) but as Spirit, Lord and Christ was King of Kings and Lord of Lords. We
need to understand whom do we refer to when we say Jesus or Lord Jesus
Christ, even though it is the same being. We do not worship the man Jesus
but worship the Lord Jesus Christ who is God / God the Son.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You alone are God, You are Who You Are and there is none other than
You. Lord we pray we understand the difference in You and the humbled You
so that we understand who we are and what we will become. You humbled
yourself so that we could be lifted up in You...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 23:31-33
31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of
them which killed the prophets.
32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
33 [Ye] serpents, [ye] generation of vipers, how can ye escape the
damnation of hell?

Matthew 2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have
seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Matthew 27:11 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked
him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou
sayest.

2 Samuel 7:8-16

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

Acts 5:31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand [to be] a Prince and a
Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

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

Revelation 17:14 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.

Revelation 19:11-16

Post  Admin on Thu 13 Jun 2019, 10:50 am

Miracles cause people to believe

John 12:11 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and
believed on Jesus.

Sign and wonders always attract people and make them to believe, especially
when there is an unbelievable miracle. It is for this reason many change
religions and beliefs multiple times.

Many religions claim signs and wonders and in India one will see such
claims in every religion. But there are some like Islam where when their
prophet was asked for a sign and wonder since he could demonstrate one he
said his book is the greatest miracle and in his book he claims to have
split the moon into two and joined it back, he also claims to have traveled
to different levels of Heaven sitting on a (flying) donkey! When we come to
Hinduism the Vedic Hinduism is sober to miracles but not the modern
Hinduism which we see practiced today and is based on mythological stories
like existence of aeroplanes, nuclear weapons, time travel etc. in 700BC -
5000BC and before that!

The difference between Christianity and other religions is that whatever is
written in the Bible has evidence and this is not only from Christian
sources but also from non-Christian sources. Non Christians who were
historians and also those who hated Christianity have in their hatred,
documented the existence of people and the events.

The miracle of Lazarus was one of the most unimaginable miracle which Jesus
performed and it caused such an upheaval amongst the Jews (who hated Jesus)
that they believed in Jesus in masses. We see in today’s message the chief
Priest wanting not only to kill Jesus but also Lazarus (the evidence) on
whom the miracle was performed.

Are miracles good? If miracles can cause people to believe in Christ then
why does not God do great wonders and get the whole world to believe in
Him? Also there are real miracles that do happen in other religions, does
that mean their gods live and are gods?

We see today’s message says the Jews believed in Jesus and does not says
they became His disciples. Today we have a large number of people who
believe in Jesus for various reasons but there are few who know Him and
follow Him. People follow people who call themselves ‘Christians’ thus call
themselves ‘Christians’ but they do not follow Christ.

Yesterday a brother called me to speak to a member of his congregation who
got deceived to follow a ‘Christian’ heretic cult called ‘New Jerusalem’.
If we keep people are infants in Christ just feeding them baby food and not
solid meat, praying for them when they have problems and for healing when
they are sick then we will surely see them becoming victims to vanity soon
or later. It is not just the wolves but God Himself says He will test us to
see if we have His Word / Law in our hearts.

It is only when we are founded on solid rock that is the Word of God and we
have close relationship with God that we can be sure of being not affected
by deceit of this world or be shaken by any event. So let us not seek
signs, wonders and miracles but seek knowledge, understanding and
relationship with the Lord.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty God. You Lord are Truth and those who know the Truth
know You. Lord we pray we seek knowledge, understanding and relationship
with You. We pray we are not misled by signs, wonders and miracles to
worship other gods and people who come in your name. We pray we are rooted
in your Word and your Kingdom...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
John 12:9-11
9 Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there: and they came
not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had
raised from the dead.
10 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to
death;
11 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed
on Jesus.

Deuteronomy 13:1-3
1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth
thee a sign or a wonder,
2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee,
saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us
serve them;
3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer
of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the
LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

Lay down your life

John 10:17, 18 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my
life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it
down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it
again. This commandment have I received of my Father.

Yesterday we saw by applying logic the scripture was understood very well
so as to give the proper interpretation. In today’s scriptures if we use
logic it may seem to fail since we have an individual stating to have to
power to lay down His life and to take it back. Can any being lay down and
take it back? If a person dies does the person exist to take it back? It is
scriptures like these who cause stumbling blocks for many Muslims to accept
Christ. The problem is not that the scripture is illogical but the basis of
our understanding is.

We understand life and death as per our natural understanding. We relate
life to the body of a person and do not realize life is the spirit and not
the body. When the spirit is in the body it lives and the inner-man / soul
is moldable but when it leaves the body the spirit still lives but the body
ceases to live and soul freezes to what it is.

Spiritual death is different from natural death. One principle of God we
need to understand is anything the Lord gives He does not take it back, if
we misuse it He may cause it to flow unto or taken by others, worse that
same blessing can become a cause of our disaster. Spiritual death does not
mean the end of existence of a person but means existence of that being
minus the goodness of God. It means the spirit will live its life term in
suffering caused by itself.

When we look at life of man, due to sin it was reduced to 120years (max)
but in reality it was made to live thousands of years. So if when we die
the natural death we still live to complete our spiritual life where were
we go. It is only in Heaven where we can renew life via the Tree/River of
Life thus eternal life is possible only if we have access and continue to
have access to (upper) Heaven.

Christ laid down His life did not mean He spiritually died and ceased to
live, it means He lowered His life and yet existed therefore He had the
ability to lift it up. He did this so that we humans who are the lowest
beings of Heaven can be transformed to a higher being form like the Angels
(animals do not exist in Heaven, only beings having the image of God in
them can exist in Heaven).

Bible says as a human He died and He went to Hell for our sins were on Him,
but since there was no sin in Him, He could not be kept in Hell thus by His
resurrection (ascension from Hell) He broke the curse of Hell in the lives
of all those who believe in Him.

Today’s message is not for general knowledge but a question to us, if we
are willing to lay down our lives for others. We need to firstly remember
we do not die when we lay down our lives in fact we have a better life, a
life of eternity in Christ when we do that. Bible says unless we do not die
(spiritual live form) we will not have life (the new transformed life form)..

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Creator of all that live. You Lord are Omnipresent and thus
all knowing. You Lord created the Angels although You knew a third would
fall. You Lord created man although You knew all would fall. You became man
so that You could transform mere man to take the place of the Angels that
fell. Lord we pray we understand your plans in our lives so that we receive
it...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Genesis 28:12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and
the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and
descending on it.

Psalms 8:5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast
crowned him with glory and honour.

Psalms 78:25 Man did eat angels’ food: he sent them meat to the full.

Psalms 104:4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:

Psalms 148:2 Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.

Matthew 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the
end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

Matthew 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall
gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do
iniquity;

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

Matthew 16:27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father
with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some
have entertained angels unawares.

Be submissive to rulers and authority

Titus 3:1,2 Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be
obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to
avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all
people.

In logic we have the ‘AND’ and the ‘OR’ conditions. If there exist the
‘AND’ condition then both the conditions need to be fulfilled, if one is
fulfilled and the other is not then the logic fails unlike in ‘OR’.

Today’s message tells us to be submissive to those in authority but does
not tell us to blindly abide in what they command of us. The whole sentence
has multiple conditions and uses the ‘AND’ logic condition. So if
authority/ruler tells us to quarrel, speak evil, harm anyone, do evil or be
uncourteous to anyone then we as Christians are not compelled to submit to
authority. Also let us understand we as Christians are not called to take
arms against authority or those who rule us for the conditions should not
work against them as it should not work against anyone else.

Today’s message does not specifically speak of civil authority but also
spiritual authorities. We should abide to all authorities provided they do
not lead us to evil against any person and primarily against the Lord. Our
protest should be in words and should be clear.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty and Holy God. You Lord are Lord of order and not of
chaos, confusion. You Lord are Living God and nothing is without your
approval or concede. You Lord also time to time test if your people have
your Word in them. We pray we discern all things and people especially
those given to rule over us accord to your Word...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Titus 3:3-11
3 For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to
various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated
by others and hating one another.
4 But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared,
5 he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but
according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of
the Holy Spirit,
6 whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
7 so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to
the hope of eternal life.
8 The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so
that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to
good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people.
9 But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels
about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless.
10 As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then
twice, have nothing more to do with him,
11 knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.

R.D SOUZA Saved by faith  Empty Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Fri 07 Jun 2019, 11:37 pm

The Lord spoke

Haggai 2:1 In the seventh [month], in the one and twentieth [day] of the
month, came the word of the LORD by the prophet Haggai, saying,

Yesterday’s message which was on how God communicates with us I had seen a
‘Believer’ comment, after the era of the Apostles the Lord never speaks to
people and those how claim so are deceived by Satan.

It is sad many Believer Churches still strongly carry a great part of the
Catechism of the Catholic Church. They neither believe in the Gifts of the
Holy Spirit, nor laying of hands to heal, nor do deliverances, and above
all they sideline the Holy Spirit.

After resurrection Jesus found it fit that He steps aside and let His
Spirit take over the task of salvation of man. Jesus as man made a way for
man to be saved and it is the Holy Spirit that does the work of leading man
along that way of salvation. Thus without the working of the Holy Spirit
there is no true salvation, one becomes a goat and not a sheep and on
Judgment Day they do not enter Heaven but suffer the Lake of Fire.

Jesus after His resurrection said His Spirit - the Spirit of Truth will
teach us all things, He will comfort us and help us inherit that which is
of the Son.

The Catholic Church to deceive people and destroy their salvation replaced
the importance of the Holy Spirit with Mother Mary (a spirit that comes as
Mary the mother of Jesus). On the other hand we see false Believer Churches
have lifted man (Preachers, Biblical Commentators, Pastors, etc.) to that
position of the Holy Spirit. The common thing that they do is become
eternal guides (Pastors) to people. They do not realize there is only one
eternal guide that is the Holy Spirit, we are just temporary guides to
people. Jesus and Paul show how they stepped aside after a while. The
relationship between Paul and Timothy is an example; Paul called Timothy
his spiritual son but later as he matured his associate, his colleague in
God’s Kingdom. A hard fact is that a Pastor can be pastored by his or her
student if he or she does not grow spiritually.

Today it is the Holy Spirit - the Spirit of the Son who speaks to us and
Jesus said what I communicate by thoughts, we should bring to light and
that which is spoken via visions and dreams, preach on housetops. The
promise of the Holy Spirit speaking to us in vision and dreams is given
both in the OT and the NT and is a sign of spiritual growth and maturity.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Living God. You Lord are Love and love without communication
is no love. Lord You love to speak to your people and it is the darkness in
people that separates them from You thus they do not hear your voice. Lord
we pray more and more people hear your voice, that they have a personal
relationship with You greater than which the Prophets of the OT had...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 10:27 What I tell you in darkness, [that] speak ye in light: and
what ye hear in the ear, [that] preach ye upon the housetops.

John 14:16-17, 26
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter,
that he may abide with you for ever;
17 [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it
seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with
you, and shall be in you.
26 But the Comforter, [even] the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in
my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all
that I said unto you.

John 16:7-15

Joel 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my
Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

Acts 2:17 And it shall be in the last days, saith God, I will pour forth
of my Spirit upon all flesh: And your sons and your daughters shall
prophesy, And your young men shall see visions, And your old men shall
dream dreams:

2 Corinthians 12:1 I must needs glory, though it is not expedient; but I
will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.

The Living God who communicates

Hebrews 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time
past unto the fathers by the prophets,

Man as a being is always reaching out to God or gods unceasingly in many
ways and most of the time they are foolish ways. In every religion one will
find people praying and talking to the one whom they worship but one never
hears them claiming the one whom they worship talking back to them like one
finds in Christianity. The foolish one way communication is not restricted
to other religions alone but also to Christianity.

Prayer is still hardly understood even amongst Christians. A person fasting
and praying, or one who rattles long prayers at high pitch are always
looked up to as spiritually strong or mature person which actually is the
opposite. A person who is spiritually strong does not need to fast to pray,
nor needs to rattle long prayers, in fact the most powerful prayer of Jesus
is not the one said in the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus shed sweat like
drops of blood, His most powerful prayers were the simple words ‘Thank You
Father’, which He did before all His great miracles. It is not the words
that make a prayer powerful, but is the faith that goes behind it.

Communication with God should be a two way communication. We spend a large
part of our prayer time talking to God without realizing He knows our
thoughts and sees the hidden, invisible things also, we rarely spend time
listening to Him.

In the start of this year I was shaken spiritually and left a distance from
God for I had not heard Him since long so I had to retreat to the brook
like Elijah did. I had to reduce my so called ‘ministry work’ and spend
time being ministered by the Lord. Through these 6 months I have seen a
rejuvenation of my spirit and started hearing the Lord communication to me.
Though it is not like the early days when on daily biases I would receive
messages in various ways from the Lord. At that time I would be like a one
man army and nothing was impossible to me. Nowadays the fact I receive
communication from God is reassuring to me that I am not very far from Him.

Talking to God is not that important to a person who is in the Lord as
hearing from Him is. Let us ask ourselves when was the last time we had
received a communication from the Lord? If we are not hearing from God then
are we worshiping an idol or Baal (unknown god)?

Like today’s verse tells us our God always desires to communicate with us,
and it is we who block this communication by our lack of faith,
prioritizing this world and its things over the Kingdom of God, our
troubles, our foolishness...

Let us spend more time hearing the Lord instead of telling Him what He
knows. Believe me He communicates in various ways, even like being audible
as a man is to another man, as He did with Moses for I have experienced it
myself once. Note one does not need to be perfect or absolutely without
sin, nor one needs to be very knowledgeable on theology to hear Him, one
just needs to passionately seek His voice of His Spirit.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are a Living God. Since You are living You communicate and always
desire to communicate with man, but it is we who block this communication
in various ways. Lord we pray we being down these barriers we have erected
like or our lack of faith or wrongly placed desires. Help us to hear You
more and more...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
1 Kings 17:1-6

Mark 4:23 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

Romans 11:8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of
slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not
hear;) unto this day.

2 Timothy 4:3-5
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but
after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having
itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be
turned unto fables.
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an
evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

Mary exposes hearts of many

Luke 2: 35 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the
thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.

Almost all Biblical commentary writers interpret today’s verse as Simeon
the Prophet prophesying the suffering which Mary would undergo seeing her
son suffer on the cross, but in reality it is something else.

My becoming a Christian Believer from a Catholic was largely due to Mary.
Before like most Catholics I too would worship (thou like them I would deny
doing so) and pray to her. It was through my investigation of the
‘Mysteries of the Rosary’ that I realized the Mary whom Catholics worship
has nothing to do with Mary the mother of Jesus and was a spirit which
deceives people away from God, this same spirit previously deceived even
the Israelites as Ashtoreth / Queen of Heaven.

Yesterday we saw how people like to use God but do not really desire God.
Today again the Lord is emphasizing on the same topic. God knowingly
allowed the deceiving spirit to come as Mary and to be worshipped. In
today’s message we see Simeon talk not about the heart of Mary being
pierced with a sword but the soul of Mary. It talks of a prophecy after the
death of Mary. All those who worship Mary go against the Word of God like
the words which the spirit speaks in the so called ‘apparitions of Mary’.

Mary can be called the greatest revealer of hearts, for she exposes the
hardness of the hearts of fake Christians who want of God but do not want
God. She is the key person for the cause of many souls being punished in
the Lake of Fire.

Today the Lord is telling us that everything that is allowed or has been
happening since long does not necessarily mean is good. We as Christians
need to discern everything that is happening and has happening since long
with the Word of God, and if it not according to His Word we should not
only outright reject it but stand against it.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You alone are God. Your Word says there is only One God. You are
Spirit and your Kingdom is a Spirit Kingdom which is eternal. Lord we pray
we understand it is only through your Word and your Spirit we who are
corrupt beings can be transformed in spirit and be reconciled to You. Lord
we pray we discern every word, every action and every sight with your Word
so that we do not fall and be consumed...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Proverbs 5:
1 My son, attend unto my wisdom, [and] bow thine ear to my understanding:
2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and [that] thy lips may keep
knowledge.
3 For the lips of a strange woman drop [as] an honeycomb, and her mouth
[is] smoother than oil:
4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable,
[that] thou canst not know [them].
7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of
my mouth.
8 Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:

Revelation 18:4 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.

Jesus the Nazarene, the exhibit

Acts 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man
approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did
by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

If we go through the Greek text the above verse comes more like this:-
“Men of Israel, listen to these words: This Jesus the Nazarene was a man
exhibited/displayed by God with miracles, wonders, and signs that God did
among you through Him, just as you yourselves know.

One may think Jesus did the greatest miracles, signs and wonders thus was
the chosen one or because He was the chosen one thus He did greatest
miracles, signs and wonders. If we look at the Bible there were others who
also did as such or even greater miracles, signs and wonders (leaving for
Lazarus’s miracle all others were also done by people like Elisha, Elijah).

The scripture does not only talk of the signs and wonders that Jesus did,
it introduces Him firstly as a Nazarene. Jesus of Nazareth and Jesus the
Nazarene are two different things.

Jesus of Nazareth talks of His origin from the place Nazareth which was
fulfilment of a prophecy that the savior would come from that place. The
scripture does not even use the term ‘Christ’ so does not address to His
appointment, His designation or mission. All the descriptions address to
what He did, for the term ‘Nazarene’ speaks of a lifestyle that was taken
as a vow. In the OT we see Samson had taken the same vow and thus has
supernatural powers. The powers were not in his hair but in his vow, his
lifestyle, the moment he broke the last vow which was of cutting his hair
(it was symbolic - hair symbolizes grace) he lost that supernatural power.

Just a couple of days back an unbeliever to whom I was sharing the Gospel
told me of a complication in her pregnancy. The child was in its 5th month
in the womb and was not fully formed, it even had some sections of its
vertebrate missing. She told me she and her husband wanted to abort the
child. When I heard this I was saddened and asked her to give God at least
10days before they go ahead and she agreed. I felt God would get the job
done, yet later that day I prayed and sought the will of Lord on it and I
got a different response. He told me He desired people to know Him more
than see signs and wonders. Later I too realized the couple did not want
Him but only miracles from Him so the next day I instructed them to go
ahead with whatever plans they had since all doctors told them there was no
hope the child would survive even the nine months. Even in this I hopped
she would question me as to why and I would fight with the Lord on her
behalf but she did not.

We think people come to know God by miracles, signs and wonders which is
proven wrong for the Israelites that left Egypt saw some of the greatest
signs and wonders yet leaving for a few they all perished (spiritually),
same with some cities during the time of Jesus.

Today’s scripture tells us the power of a Christian is identified in his or
her lifestyle. If we want to experience continual power of God in my lives
then we need to change our lifestyle. The early Christians were called
‘People of the Way’ all because of the way they lived their lives. If we
are failing to see the power of God manifest in us and through us then let
us inspect the lifestyle we are living, is it a Christian lifestyle, or a
worldly lifestyle?

Let us not seek signs and wonders but by our lifestyle as Christians let
signs and wonders follow us.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord You are Almighty, Holy and Righteous God. You Lord are Spirit and your
Kingdom is a Spirit Kingdom. Lord You commanded that we overcome this
natural world if we want to see your glory shine in us, we can experience
Heaven on earth only if we live a more spiritual life than a natural life.
Help us to be sober in our desires of this world and hunger, thirst for
that which is of your Spirit Kingdom...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
John 4:48 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye
will not believe.

Matthew 11:21 Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if
the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon,
they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.

Mark 16:17-18
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they
cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it
shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall
recover.

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