The Lord coverest Himself with light
Psalm 104:2 - Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who
stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
People usually take the scripture Genesis 1:3 very literally without
understanding. Yes it is true that, the creation in which we live in
and of which details are given as to how it came into existence in
Genesis was formed from light. This is also proven in science that all
matter came into form from light partials like quarks, neutrons,
protons etc. (the Big Bang theory and NASA space probe pictures). The
other parts of the process of creation also are now proven by many
scientists and archeologists as according to the Bible. The theory of
Evolution has been proven wrong and the originator of the theory
Charles Darwin himself regretted this in his old age after the gospel
was given to him by one Lady Hope, when he was unwell. He became a
Christian before his death. A summer house in Darwin’s garden used to
house evangelistic meetings as per reports even after 70 years of his
death.
Not going too much into this debatable topic, what I am surprised that
(like today I heard from a Pastor at the Sunday service) that Jesus
Christ, Who is also called The Light came into existence by the Spoken
Word!
What I want to ask, if Light came into existence only when God spoke
the words, then what was God dwelling in before that? Was God in
darkness since ancient? If God Himself is light then how can there be
darkness around Him.
Light as we know or darkness as we know is like time, existence only
in our creation. Like solar time cease to exist outside the solar
system so also light or time cease to exist outside our creation. The
light which is associated with Heaven is the plans of God. Like life
on earth exists due to light and is dependent on light, so also
Heavens exist due to God’s plans and everything works according to
God’s plans. The plans of God are just not ordinary plans but are so
awesome and mysterious plans that even the Angels who are such
superior beings have their eyes ever focused to see how God manages to
fulfill them. God's wisdom is beyond the understanding of any being
but knowing the Lord we know that His plans are all good. This He also
confirms to us in His Word.
The Heavens are like a curtain to man, but when we understand the
Heavens the cease to totally block the view and give us a peep into
Who God is and also get to see His glory.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, You made us mere beings in the flesh. Although we were made
in your image sin made us lower than the worms, but Lord, your plan
for us did not change. You allowed us to fall so that by the testimony
of Christ in us even the Angels are lifted up unto your glorious New
Body the New Temple. Lord, even how hard things may be for us or our
situation may seem, we trust in You and fear not, for we know You are
covered with great plans for our good and everything that You plan You
fulfil...
We declare this into our lives in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
Genesis 1:1-4
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the
face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the
waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light
from the darkness.
John 1:18
18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in
the bosom [creek] of the Father, he hath declared him
John 1:1-5
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made through him; and without him was not anything
made that hath been made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in the darkness; and the darkness apprehended it not.
Psalms 102:25
25 Of old didst thou lay the foundation of the earth; And the heavens
are the work of thy hands.
Isaiah 48:12-13
12 Hearken unto me, O Jacob, and Israel my called: I am he; I am the
first, I also am the last.
13 Yea, my hand hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right
hand hath spread out the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up
together.

Correct us with Your Law

Jeremiah 10:24 - O LORD, correct me, but with judgment [Law]; not in
thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing.

Jeremiah Chapter 10 is more about the Church of God and as to what God
sees in His Church. In today's message the people of the Church of God
are crying out to the Lord to correct them with the Law and not in his
wrath. One would wonder why law for the law exposes sin and sin
brings death which is as good as the wrath of God.

The Hebrew word used here is 'mishpat' which is translated here and
many places as 'judgment' and some places as 'law' for it inclines
more towards the judge then towards the instruction of the judge. The
Hebrew word used for law which inclines towards the instruction is
'torah'.

The torah was given to Moses by the Finger of God and the Finger of
God is the Spirit of God. The law was given unto man by the Holy
Spirit, but now by the sacrifice of Jesus we have received the Giver
of the law. The Holy Spirit Who is our Helper, helps us abide by the
law while operating under the grace of Jesus Christ.

We need to always remember it is only by the Spirit of God that the
Church of God can stand and manifest into the Body of Christ. So let
us come together and surrender unto the Potter and ask Hm to mold us
into the beautiful Bride of God the Son.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, we thank You for your mercy and grace. It is by your mercy that
You the giver of the law have humbled Yourself to dwell into man and
fulfill the purpose of man. The Church suffers and is persecuted
because it does not abide by You. Holy Spirit, work in the Church and
correct us so as to let the glory of God be seen in it like your glory
was seen among the Israelites when they abided by You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Exodus 31:17-18
17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for
days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested,
and was refreshed.
18 And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with
him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone,
written with the finger of God.

Deuteronomy 9:10
10 And the LORD delivered unto me two tables of stone written with
the finger of God; and on them was written according to all the words,
which the LORD spake with you in the mount out of the midst of the
fire in the day of the assembly.

Luke 11:20
20 But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the
kingdom of God is come upon you.

Jeremiah 31:33-34
33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel
after those days, saith Jehovah: I will put my law in their inward
parts, and in their heart will I write it; and I will be their God,
and they shall be my people:
34 and they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man
his brother, saying, Know Jehovah; for they shall all know me, from
the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith Jehovah: for I will
forgive their iniquity, and their sin will I remember no more.

Psalms 37:31
31 The law of his God is in his heart; None of his steps shall slide.

Unclean spirits
Mark 5:8 - For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
When Jesus delivered the man with a legion of evil spirits He
commanded the spirits to come out of them using the term 'unclean
spirit'. What is interesting is why the term unclean when spirits do
not have a physical body to be clean.
The Greek word 'akathartos' which is translated as 'unclean' is used
in the Gospels (Mt, Mk & Lk) only with evil spirits, while in the
letters of Paul and the Old Testament (the Hebrew word) it is used
also in reference with people, animals and sacrifices.
In a certain religion this word gets associated with the pig although
the pig is not the dirtiest animal. The dirtiest animal in the world
is the rat yet the pig gets the tag all because he is more visual than
the rat. What is humanly dirty is not necessary unclean. When the
Angel bought an array of 'unclean' animals to offer Peter to eat in a
vision, I am sure the pig would have been one among them.
Jesus describes the unclean spirit as wicket / evil which roots from
the meaning 'moral rebellion against God'. These spirits are the
fallen Angels who rebelled against the plans of God before the
creation we live in was made. This rebelling caused darkness to come
to existence.
This term was used with specific animals not because there was
something evil with the animal but it was to do with the image in
which they were created.
When God created man, he was created in the image of God (plural).
Like a photograph of a person reminds us of the person although it is
just paper, so also the form of man and every part of his being has a
understanding which gives an understanding of God the Father, God the
Son and God the Spirit.
When God created the animals He created some of them in His kind
(kind-of-him) and some in their kind (kind-of-her) , in short means
those of His Kingdom or of the rebellious angels. It did not mean that
these animals were evil but from them and their ways of life we learn
about the evil spirits (i.e. a serpent gives us understanding of
deceit - a cold animal which crawls on its belly in a zig-zag
direction and kills its prey with poison before consuming it wholly).
When God created Adam, he was magnificent and the glory of God covered
even his nakedness. But when sin came into him Adam lost that glory
and many other things and changed him so much that the person called
as son of God over generations was called a son of devil.
We can be clean only when we have the Spirit of God in us and Christ
is seen in us. Christ in us does not mean just believing in Christ but
also showing what we believe in our work (not just profession but all
that we do) and our way of life (our relationships, our priorities
etc.). As believers when we rebel against the plans of God in our
lives, it is like we are trying to go back to our roots in Adam.
So let us walk in light according to God plan and thus show God in us.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord, we thank You for creating us in your image. Even when Satan
deceived Adam to lose this image but the sacrifice of your Son and by
your Spirit, You have made it possible for us to get back this image.
As You get seen in us more and more clearly, we ask You to protect us
from backsliding and losing You completely.. .
We make this pray in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 12:43-45
43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through
dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.
44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out;
and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more
wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last
state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also
unto this wicked generation.
Acts 10:8-16
9 On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto
the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth
hour:
10 And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they
made ready, he fell into a trance,
11 And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him,
as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to
the earth:
12 Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and
wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.
14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing
that is common or unclean.
15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath
cleansed, that call not thou common.
16 This was done thrice: and the vessel was received up again into heaven.
Genesis 1:21,24-26
21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that
moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind,
and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after
his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his
kind: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle
after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after
his kind: and God saw that it was good.
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl
of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over
every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

To MountZion - Page 38 Empty Re: To MountZion

Post  Admin on Mon 22 Nov 2010, 2:05 pm

Christ died for our sins, while we were yet sinners
Romans 5:7,8 - For scarcely [with difficulty] for a righteous man will
one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us.
At one of Dr. Ron's session he was sharing a testimony at what
happened at one of the sites he was excavating. It was a site of one
of the place which the Roman Empire ruled over during the early
church. Along with him were 2 persons working on a skeleton of a young
girl about 13 years old. From the marks on the bones one would
conclude that she died due to an attack of an animal. The nail marks
of the animal while tearing the flesh were visible on the bones.
Dr. Ron was working at the leg portion of the girl while his other 2
colleagues who were atheist were working on the upper portion.
Suddenly the 2 scream and jump out of the pit with a scare in their
eyes. Dr. Ron's back was towards them, so he shouted at them to get
back into the pit and continue the work. The two were pointing to the
hand of the girl. When Dr. Ron checked it out there was an object held
in the hands of the girl with words carving into it. The words read 'I
lay my life for Christ' in the language it was written.
There were many such bodies found nearby which also showed they were
victims to animal attack. Then they realized these remains were of
people who were executed to brutal dead because they were Christians.
One of the atheist persons was a local started to cry bitterly. He
said that his ancestors gave their lives because of their belief and
realized their love for Christ. From that day he became a believer.
We are moved when we see something done for us but we should
understand even before we came into existence in this flesh Jesus
Christ suffered for us and gave His life on the crucifix for us.
When we were very young many of us knew that Jesus Christ sacrificed
Himself on a cross for the sins of the world, for those who believe in
Him. But we came to a real realization of the sacrifice of Jesus when
we had a personal exchange of the sacrifice into our lives. Our
relationship with Jesus changed when we realized 'He died for my sins
even before I knew Him'.
If one goes into historic details of Jesus, we will see that Jesus
just a few months before He was crucified was very famous with
thousands and thousands of followers. Leaving for the Pharisees and
Sadducees most of the people had great regards for Him, this included
the Romans and the Roman rulers. Jesus could have continued His
ministry and would have expanded his following throughout the world.
People could have known God but there would have been no way for them
to before God. Keeping in mind the main purpose of His mission on
earth Jesus sacrifice all that fame and did things which cause the
Romans and the people to hate Him, like healing Bartimaeus at Jericho.
Bartimaeus was not his name but the word Bartimaeus means 'son of
Timaeus', he was considered like a Roman rebel and was blinded by the
Romans under order of Caesar, Jesus knew if He healed this man He
would be considered ‘a enemy of the people’ by the Romans. The Jews
High Priest could torture and whip Jesus but did not have the power to
take his life. It was only the Romans who had the power to crucify or
give a dead sentence.
When Jesus Who was God the Son come as man, gave up his glory in
Heaven and his fame on earth and accepted the suffering and dead on
the cross at that time He had you and me in his mind. He did not want
us to perish and there is no man or god who ever did such a great
sacrifice. Most gods demand a sacrifice but our God and only true God
became a sacrifice for us.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, through You all creation came into existence and by your
great sacrifice creation does not perish. You love your people and for
them You humbled yourself and became an eternal sacrifice for us. Lord
we thank You for your love which was manifested on the cross. We pray
for the lost sheep who have yet not experienced your love, that they
may see your bruised body lifted up for their sins too and come to
know You...
This prayer we make in your Mighty Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
Mark 10:46-52
46 And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his
disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of
Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging.
47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry
out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.
48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried
the more a great deal, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.
49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they
call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he
calleth thee.
50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.
51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should
do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive
[revenge] my sight.
52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee
whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in
the way.

God will smote the Philistines
1 Samuel 14:31 - And they smote the Philistines that day from Michmash
to Aijalon:
The word Philistines means 'Immigrants' .
Every country has great concern with regards to immigrants. All
tolerate immigrants when their numbers are small but as their numbers
increase they become a problem to the natives of that country. Even
the most open minded, developed country which is concern about its own
people will one day say ‘full stop’ to immigrants and start chasing
them out.
God's Kingdom too has been facing problems with immigrants. A citizen
of the Kingdom of God is a person who is fully rooted in Christ. A
good citizen of a country is one who abides by the law of the country
and pays taxes; so also a good citizen of God’s Kingdom is the one who
abides by the Word of God and witnesses Christ unto others (since we
cannot give to God who has all therefore we need to give his people,
not just talks of Christ but also in action).
Who do you call an immigrant in God’s Kingdom? Let me explain this
with an example.
Yesterday I was at a session of Dr. Ron Charles (he is flying back to
USA today and would really miss him, he was just amazing) and at the
session I met a manager of a book store which is dedicated to Bible
related books. This manager was sharing with me and another person his
experiences at the store. In one such experience, he spoke of a person
who came to the store and said 'I speak to Jesus everyday', so this
manager was happy to hear that. Then this person went further to state
'I spoke to Jesus just in the morning'. Hearing this, the manager was
even happier. But when the person said 'I speak to Jesus as I speak to
Krishna' (a Hindu god). At this the manager knew that this person was
a problem person. He immediately rebuked this person (in a mild way).
He told him 'you can speak either to Jesus or to Krishna but you
cannot be speaking to the real Jesus and Krishna, Mohamed or any other
god or religion head together, they do not get along with each other'.
The 'Philistines' in the Kingdom of God are those who believe in Jesus
and also believe in all the rubbish of this world. They are not true
citizens of the Kingdom of God but call themselves Christians. They
are Christians infected with the deceit of Satan.
One would state that we all are victims to Satan's deceit in one way
or the other, in varying quantities. No doubt we are, since the whole
Truth is still not in us. But there are some basic acceptances which
the Lord requires as a Christian and then there are those which the
Lord tolerates in the start. But when the person knows what they are
doing is wrong and still continues; then the Lord’s patience is tested
with that person.
Till date the Lord was tolerating many of the Philistines among us,
but today the Lord is saying He will chase them out from Michmash and
Aijalon and slay them. Michmash means 'hiding place' and Aijalon /
Ajalon comes from the root word 'deer or stag' which in turn is an
intense form of the word male goat / ram, meaning hardened person who
call himself a part of the flock of Jesus but does not imitate Him. We
all know what will happen to the goats when they are separated from
the sheep on the Day of Judgment.
In this world an immigrant can be expiated to his own or to another
country but in God’s Kingdom on the Day of Judgment when the Heavens
are reorganized where can these immigrants be sent? There will be is
no place from God when they can be put hence these will be slayed
brutally.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You are the Lamb of God sacrificed for our sins. You are
the First Fruit of the Vineyard of God. You are our Shepherd and the
Way to our eternal home. You lead your flock but will save only your
sheep. Lord we pray that we are not counted among the goats and that
we will not behave like immigrants of your Kingdom. Help us to be
responsible citizens of your Kingdom...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen
[Reference Scriptures]
James 2:19-23
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils
also believe, and tremble.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered
Isaac his son upon the altar?
22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was
faith made perfect?
23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God,
and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the
Friend [Associate] of God.
Matthew 25:31-33, 41-46
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy
angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall
separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from
the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me,
ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his
angels:
42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and
ye gave me no drink:
43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me
not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an
hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison,
and did not minister unto thee?
45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch
as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the
righteous into life eternal.

You have authority
Mark 4: 39 - And he awoke, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the
sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
We had an amazing Blazing Youth Revival and I like to thank all who
prayed for the event and I ask our Lord to bless you and your families
for doing so.
At the event what we prayed (desired) for did happen. The youth and
the people of Daund were filled with the Holy Spirit and the glory of
God was manifested awesomely in that place. The anointing was so much
that the sound system and all other plans had to be stopped, for the
people were soaking in the Holy Spirit for hours together. The Lord
was not only working in the tent even outside the tent the security
men who was hired and did know the Lord, were also renewed. Out of the
10-12 security personnel there were 7 who accepted Christ. Not only
that the people of Daund were also affected; any person whom we gave
the Gospel on the roads wanted to come to the event and accept Christ.
It was just unbelievable.
All this did not start every smoothly, when I landed there with a part
of team, we saw that it had rained there heavily the night before and
it was still drizzling and there were many other problems adding to
that. About the rain we got together and made a prayer, it was not a
prayer of request which asked God to stop the rains, but it was more
an instruction to the clouds to keep away from the event and the town.
We only thanked God for the great event in advance. As expected it did
not rain a drop till we finished our event and packed up. The sun was
so strong that we had a problem with the heat. The night we finished
it rained in that town.
Personally I have experienced many a times that I could speak to the
rains without doubt (only for the glory of God) and it abided. Some
years back when the Lord was teaching me about prayer for a whole
season I had a personal remote control for the rains. Whenever I
stepped out it would stop and as I entered into a cap or a building it
would continue raining. When I shared this with my colleague who is a
Hindu, he did not believe and so I demonstrated it to him before his
own eyes and he was just speechless. I was in the car and it was
raining heavily, we parked the car on the side and when I stepped out
there was no rain, not a drop!
We need to understand when God created creation He gave man dominance
over it. We lost this dominance because the image of God in us got
corrupted. This creation has gone against man because of the curse of
God on Adam. Now, Jesus by His sacrifice has broken the curse and by
his Spirit made available to us once again this authority.
People wrongly think that man handed over this authority to Satan when
man fell to his deceit. Satan is unnecessarily glorified and many
things are attributed to him without proper understanding. Satan is
called prince of the air and of this world; he is not the prince of
creation. The word used for air specifies the lower air which
symbolizes the spirits of the lower heavens. The word used for world
does not mean earth but here it means government (the people who are
lost).
As we come to know more and more the Lord, we will have more and more
authority over this creation and all things; as was once given unto us
in the beginning. The weather, the animals, the earth will not be
against us but will be in harmony with us.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord God in your anger You cursed man and creation became our enemy.
By your love and the sacrifice of your Son You have broken this curse
and once again both peace into our lives. Today we have authority over
all things You have given unto us. Help us Lord to understand and know
all that You did as man is very much possible to us only if we believe
in your salvation...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

Genesis 3:17-19
17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice
of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee,
saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake;
in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life;
18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou
shalt eat the herb of the field;
19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return

1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;

world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit
that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
John 12:30-32
30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but
for your sakes.
31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this
world be cast out.
32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the

20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by
reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the
bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of
God.
22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in
pain together until now.
23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits
of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for
the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

Take heed on how you hear

Luke 8: 18 - Take heed therefore how ye hear: for
whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath
not, from him shall be taken away even that which he
thinketh he hath.

Today's message if really understood will make everyone
scrutinize themselves, this is the reason Jesus
cautioned again but saying 'take heed therefore how ye
hear'.

The word translated as 'hear' is also translated as
'hearken' (6) and 'give audience' (3). Over here it
means more in sense of 'abiding by' or 'listen' or 'mentally
receive' because the word translated as 'hath', is more of
in the sense of wearing or to have (hold) possession
of the mind.

The Lord is cautioning us of the understanding which we
hold, if we have the proper understanding of the
Kingdom of God then more will be given unto us and those who
think they have the understand will be made more confused.

The Word of God is one word and all things relate or
connect to each other. If what we hold contradicts
any scripture we need to get rid of it immediately or
scrutinize it immediately. Things which we do not
understand needs to be verified with scriptures and
the way the Bible is written all things will have at least
two verifications. Every scripture can be understood in
many ways and there is no only one way to understand
a scripture because they are designed to speak to the
hearts of man according to their situation. But every
understanding will interconnect to the other
understands of the same scripture and will not contradict it.

The Ephesians were praised by Paul as being most mature
because they did not take any word of Paul at face
value but verified every word with the scriptures. Even
though Paul was in the forefront of all the other leaders
of the Church yet his words were subjected to
scrutiny with the Word of God.

Today do we scrutinize what we hear from famous leaders
with the Word of God or do we take them for granted
because we see gifts operating in them?

Understand all of us have limited understand of the Word
but it important that we make sure this limited is in
the right direction.

It is time to questions all the understandings we hold and
see if they fall in line with each other, if not,
then at least one of them needs to be put in the dustbin.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord, forgive us for the time we have lifted man’s
word more than your Word. Lord as spoken by You
expose all that is in us which is not of your Kingdom so that by
your Word and your Spirit we bring it to correction.. .

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Luke 1:1-4
1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth
in order a declaration of those things which are most surely
believed among us,
2 Even as they delivered them unto us, which from
the beginning were eyewitnesses, and ministers of the word;
3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect
understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto
thee in order, most excellent Theophilus,
4 That thou mightest know the certainty of those
things, wherein thou hast been instructed.

Luke 8:16-17
16 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth
it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it
on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the
light.
17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made
manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come
abroad.

Luke 24:44-45
44 And he said unto them, These are the words which
I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things
must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses,
and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning
me.
45 Then opened he their understanding, that they
might understand the scriptures,

1 Corinthians 1:19-20
19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of
the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the
prudent.
20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is
the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the
wisdom of this world?

Colossians 1:9-17
9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it,
do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be
filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and
spiritual understanding;
10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all
pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in
the knowledge of God;
11 Strengthened with all might, according to his
glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with
joyfulness;
12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us
meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness,
and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
14 In whom we have redemption through his blood,
even the forgiveness of sins:
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the
firstborn of every creature:
16 For by him were all things created, that are in
heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether
they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or
powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17 And he is before all things, and by him all
things consist.

Keep alert and pray for your escape
Luke 21: 36 Watch you therefore, and pray always that you may be
accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass,
and to stand before the Son of man.
Everyone who has read the Bible knows in their heart that the time on
hand is a tough times. People know that disasters, problems,
calamities and difficult moments will look down on the people of this
and immediate generations.
One thing understand, God's Word (promises) are true always so it does
not mean people who are truly in the Lord will also suffer. Like the
Lord took Elijah into a brook and provided for him even when disaster
surrounded him, the Lord will do the same to his people who abide by
Him.
There are people who make prayers like 'Lord, take away famine,
earthquakes, terrorism etc. away from this world, let there be peace
in this world'. Even if a person fasts and prayers not only 40days but
even 40years this prayer will not be answered. What is written in the
Word of God cannot be change and the Lord Himself will do that. The
only thing which can happen is it can be postponed or pre-pone /
advance it, or change its duration like shorten it or elongate it. But
canceling it is not possible.
In today's message the Lord is asking us to be aware of the time ahead
and pray that is passes quickly, because if it elongates those who are
faint in heart or young in spirit will be crushed by it and get
destroyed.
Like the people of Jerusalem and Judah were given hints about the
disaster which was to come on them in 70AD as to when to escape and
where to escape, so also the Bible instructs us as what to do and when
to do during these difficult moments. If we abide by it then we too
will escape like the citizens on Jerusalem did in 70AD.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You gave us the Word to build us and save us from the disasters
set forth due to sin and darkness. You are light and darkness cannot
stand before You. Like You shook the earth during the times of Noah,
You will shake once again not only this creation but also the Heavens.
You have plans of a new creation full of light with no existence of
darkness. Lord we thank You for the invitation for being a part of
this creation. Help us Lord to survive this world and to sleep in You
abiding by your will...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
1 Kings 16:1-5
1 And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said
unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand,
there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.
2 And the word of the LORD came unto him, saying,
3 Get thee hence, and turn thee eastward, and hide thyself by the
brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.
4 And it shall be, that thou shalt drink of the brook; and I have
commanded the ravens to feed thee there.
5 So he went and did according unto the word of the LORD: for he went
and dwelt by the brook Cherith, that is before Jordan.
Lamentations 2:19-22
19 Arise, cry out in the night: in the beginning of the watches pour
out thine heart like water before the face of the Lord: lift up thy
hands toward him for the life of thy young children, that faint for
hunger in the top of every street.
20 Behold, O LORD, and consider to whom thou hast done this. Shall
the women eat their fruit, and children of a span long? shall the
priest and the prophet be slain in the sanctuary of the Lord?
21 The young and the old lie on the ground in the streets: my virgins
and my young men are fallen by the sword; thou hast slain them in the
day of thine anger; thou hast killed, and not pitied.
22 Thou hast called as in a solemn day my terrors round about, so
that in the day of the LORD’S anger none escaped nor remained: those
that I have swaddled and brought up hath mine enemy consumed.
Mathew 24:15-22
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken
of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let
him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing
out of his house:
18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck
in those days!
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the
sabbath day:
21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the
beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh
be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.

The wrath of God
Ezekiel 23:24 - And they shall come against thee with chariots,
wagons, and wheels, and with an assembly of people, which shall set
against thee buckler [piercing hook / thorn] and shield and helmet
round about: and I will set judgment before them, and they shall judge
thee according to their judgments.
Chapter 23 of Ezekiel reminds us of the prophecies which the Lord
spoke against the Jewish Church (Old Church - Oholah which was build
on false truths - Samaria) and we see every part of it had come true.
Even today after many years we read how people other than the Germans
were involved hand in hand, in the mass slaughter and torture of the
Jews. If one goes into the root meanings of each word one would be
amazed at the accuracy of the prophecy.
In today's scripture the Lord spoke against the New Church (Oholibah)
which is mainly the RC Church (which speaks of peace but does not grow
in the Lord - Jerusalem which does not become Zion). The Lord in the
book of Ezekiel and other Prophets also speaks against theses churches
and also believer Churches which are built on false truths (Samaria)
and worldly prosperity (Assyrians).
One of the fruits of the Holy Spirit which in many translations is
given as longsuffering but in real is 'slow to anger'.
The message for us today is about the anger of God. The Lord does get
angry but is very slow to anger and we read this many places in
scriptures. When the Lord gets angry He does really get angry and in
his anger He does punish his people severely but rarely consumes them
totally. We find even in his anger his mercy shines and He does spare
a few and therefore in visions to me when He wanted to show his anger,
He symbolized it with a vicious tornado.
The Lord is telling those who run after false truths, prosperity and
progress, the very same will be used against them by their enemies.
These things, which they are pursuing, will be their greatest problem.
It will isolate them from others and make them feel high headed. The
Lord will deliver them into the hands of the worldly people and the
worldly people will punish them according to the worldly standards.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord, help us understand the purpose we coming together as one body
under your Name. Jesus spoke to us and always told us the purpose
being to glorify of the Father. Lord, help us understand You are the
Rock on which the foundation of the Church is build. Help us overcome
ourselves and anchor us onto You, keep us far your wrath...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

Psalms 86:15
15 But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious,
longsuffering [slow to anger], and plenteous in mercy and truth.

[slow to anger], gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Ezekiel 23:1-6
1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, there were two women, the daughters of one mother:
3 And they committed whoredoms in Egypt; they committed whoredoms in
their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised
the teats of their virginity.
4 And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her
sister: and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus
were their names; Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.
5 And Aholah played the harlot when she was mine; and she doted on
her lovers, on the Assyrians her neighbours,
6 Which were clothed with blue, captains and rulers, all of them
desirable young men, horsemen riding upon horses.
Ezekiel 23:11-14
11 And when her sister Aholibah saw this, she was more corrupt in her
inordinate love than she, and in her whoredoms more than her sister in
her whoredoms.
12 She doted upon the Assyrians her neighbours, captains and rulers
clothed most gorgeously, horsemen riding upon horses, all of them
desirable young men.
13 Then I saw that she was defiled, that they took both one way,
14 And that she increased her whoredoms: for when she saw men
pourtrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans pourtrayed with
vermilion,
Ezekiel 23:22-24
22 Therefore, O Aholibah, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will
raise up thy lovers against thee, from whom thy mind is alienated, and
I will bring them against thee on every side;
23 The Babylonians, and all the Chaldeans, Pekod, and Shoa, and Koa,
and all the Assyrians with them: all of them desirable young men,
captains and rulers, great lords and renowned, all of them riding upon
horses.
24 And they shall come against thee with chariots, wagons, and
wheels, and with an assembly of people, which shall set against thee
buckler and shield and helmet round about: and I will set judgment
before them, and they shall judge thee according to their judgments.

Stop and Listen

Suggested Bible Reading
Now as they went on their way, he entered a certain village, where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to what he was saying. But Martha was distracted by her many tasks; so she came to him and asked, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her then to help me." But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her."

Dual Citizenship
2 Kings 4:23 - And he said, Wherefore wilt thou go to him to day? it
is neither new moon, nor sabbath. And she said, It shall be well.
The testimony of Elisha and the Shunammite woman is a very important
lesson for all people of God, especially the anointed Men of God. We
learn how Elisha moved by the generosity of the Shunammite woman
wanted to bless her in some or another way. And when he came to know
of her been not able to bear a child, he blessed her with one. He did
not realize that it was the favor of God which was on him and not
because of the woman due to which he was enjoying the given
facilities.
The woman respected the God and the beliefs of Elisha but also
believed in the gods of the heathens. In today's message we can
clearly see this, as she acknowledges the Sabbath and the new moon
together.
Elisha learned his lesson and he literately fought with the Lord to
keep his respect. He offered his life for the life of the boy by
sleeping on his dead body of the boy, hand to hand, leg to leg, mouth
to mouth not once but twice.
For today's message the Lord wants us to learn from this incident not
what Elisha learned but as to why the woman did not receive her
blessing of a child even though she was a good person in society.
History tells us that this woman was well respected in the town she
lived in. She was not only a good wife but she was also a good
business woman, an important person in the city council but also a
very charitable woman.
There are many among us who like the Shunammite woman are 'good'
persons; 'good' to society and 'good' inside, but still losing on our
blessings.
I was really blessed to be able to spent time with Dr. Ron Charles
during the Blazing Youth Revival trip hearing from him the tremendous
knowledge and understanding the Lord has blessed him with. In these
few days he had given an amazing teaching on salt with the historic
background, this I will share with you in a nutshell.
It was long before Jesus, during the times of Alexandra that one of
his army persons found the preservation property of salt by accident.
They found that they could keep meat fresh for a long time and this
was very critical for his army since they were always on the move.
During the time of Jesus / the Roman Empire, salt had become very
important by then, like oil is today; so battles were fought across
kingdoms for this commodity.
Judah was blessed with abundant salt so the Romans took a part of the
taxes from the Jews in salt. This salt was all collected in a ship and
many such ships were filled before they all left to Rome together.
During that time a group of Jewish rebellions (Zealots) who hated the
Romans, use to mix dirt into the salt in the darkness of the night.
The Romans could not know of this because these salt piles were
covered with a protective cover from the rain and wind. By the time
the salt reached Roman the dirt spread throughout the salt making it
inedible for the Romans. Then the problem came of discarding it
because there was too much dirt in the salt to consume it and too much
salt in the dirt to just throw it away.
The Caesar of that time though of a solution and used it as a thick
layer below the stone tiles for building of the roads in Roman, this
helped maintain the roads for a very long period of time. Even today
these very roads are in good condition although more than 2000 years
have passed.
If we are salt mixed with dirt of this world we will not be usable by
God nor will be acceptable by man. We will have too much of this world
in us for God and too much of God in us for man and thus we will be
like the salt trampled under the feet of man and rejected of God.
The Lord says 'be holy for I AM Holy, be righteous for I AM Righteous,
be full of love for I AM Love, do not compromise Me for this world for
if you are lukewarm I will spit you out of My mouth'.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord, forgive us for the times we have compromised You for the love,
attention, material and respect of this world. Lord by your Spirit
open these areas to us that we may overcome them by your grace. For
You nothing is impossible and with You in us and with us, we too can
overcome...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
2 Kings 4:27-35
27 And when she came to the man of God to the hill, she caught him by
the feet: but Gehazi came near to thrust her away. And the man of God
said, Let her alone; for her soul is vexed within her: and the LORD
hath hid it from me, and hath not told me.
28 Then she said, Did I desire a son of my lord? did I not say, Do
not deceive me?
29 Then he said to Gehazi, Gird up thy loins, and take my staff in
thine hand, and go thy way: if thou meet any man, salute him not; and
if any salute thee, answer him not again: and lay my staff upon the
face of the child.
30 And the mother of the child said, As the LORD liveth, and as thy
soul liveth, I will not leave thee. And he arose, and followed her.
31 And Gehazi passed on before them, and laid the staff upon the face
of the child; but there was neither voice, nor hearing. Wherefore he
went again to meet him, and told him, saying, The child is not awaked.
32 And when Elisha was come into the house, behold, the child was
dead, and laid upon his bed.
33 He went in therefore, and shut the door upon them twain, and
prayed unto the LORD.
34 And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his
mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands: and
he stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed
warm.
35 Then he returned, and walked in the house to and fro; and went up,
and stretched himself upon him: and the child sneezed seven times, and
the child opened his eyes.
Matthew 5:13
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his
savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for
nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Revelation 3:15-16
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou
wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I
will spue thee out of my mouth.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord

I will be going to the Blazing Youth Revival camp which is held at Daund
(near Pune), which is a remote town. I may not be reachable to my mails /
internet. In that case will continue to send the daily devotions only when I
reach back to Mumbai (by 13th). Yesterday and today I have been busy with
Dr. Ron Charles who has arrived here.

Please do read the Word of God daily and without fail do meditate on it.

Keep all the participants at the Revival in your prayers, that they become
mighty warriors for the Kingdom of God.

God Bless you and your families

Your Bro. in Christ.

The Lord's mercy, do not take it for granted
Matthew 18:33 - Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy
fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee?
In the past few mails I have showed a little different face of God
from the one we have known since long. We have always been told and
have pictured God as ever loving, ever forgiving, His mercy flows
without boundaries.
In my few past mails I have shown God as one who get angry, one who
takes account and as one who also punishes sometimes without mercy. Is
this a wrong image of God?
In today's message the Lord is also shown as a merciful God and there
is no doubt about Him being merciful. When Lord came as man Jesus on
earth He made available abundant grace (mercy as much as required to
get the job done) for all mankind, yet it is received only by those
who believe in Him. Jesus could have saved every human but that is not
so, it is only those who believe in Him are those who are saved.
With regards to forgiveness Jesus did not did not sign a blank cheque
for all mankind. Only those who repent are forgiven. When asked how
many times should a person be forgiven Jesus did not say unlimited or
eternally, He gave a figure and the figure was seventy times seven. I
had read before from people who explained that seven was a cardinal
number therefore means endlessly but that goes against scriptures for
example Jesus Himself say at the end He will come again to judge. Now
if a person is forgiven for everything where does the question come of
judgment?
It is only when one understand the number seven stands for Christ that
one will understand the scriptures. Seventy times seven does not mean
eternally but means fullness in Christ.
God is a righteous God and has set limits to everything that is not of
His Kingdom. Even sin which He allowed to grow, He has set a limit for
it and when the limit has reached He will take action.
Do not take God for granted and His nature for granted, it is only
when we come to know of Him we will have fear of Him. There are some
sins we may a million times and still be forgiven but there are some
which we may do even once and be out of grace.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are a merciful God and your mercy is beyond man’s
imagination. But Lord, help us realize that we cannot take your grace
and mercy for granted. Help us always be repentant and change so that
we grow in you. You have a purpose for us and that it be fulfilled in
us...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 18:21-22
21 Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother
sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
22 Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but,
Until seventy times seven.
Luke 17:3-4
3 Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee,
rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.
4 And if he trespass against thee seven times in a day, and seven
times in a day turn again to thee, saying, I repent; thou shalt
forgive him.
Matthew 1:21
21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name
JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
1 Timothy 1:12-16
12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that
he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;
13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but
I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
14 And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and
love which is in Christ Jesus.
15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that
Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus
Christ might shew forth all longsuffering (slow to anger), for a
pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life
everlasting.
James 2:12-14
12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.
13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no
mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith,
and have not works? can faith save him?

Post  Admin on Fri 05 Nov 2010, 5:29 pm

We are all a divided house
Mark 3:25 - And if a house be divided against itself, that house will
not be able to stand.
Jesus spoke about how Satan and his team even though they do different
things, via different people, sometimes even getting people whom they
use against each other if not together against the people of God, yet
they are all united in their agenda, their purpose - which is
destruction of man.
This thumb rule is not only for the kingdom of Satan this thumb rule
is also applicable to the Kingdom of God and for His Church.
The greatest problem with our Church and the reason we have so many
denominations is because our agenda, our purpose is not the same.
Jesus Christ said His purpose was only one and that was to glorify the
Father. We as Christians are followers of Christ and therefore His
purpose becomes our purpose. The reason we are divided is because our
purposes are different. Some want to glorify themselves like proving
they are right, some have not made the Spirit of God the foundation of
the Church and some others have their flesh and their carnal desires,
good life of earth as the main purpose and God secondary. Each church
has different purposes and since their purpose is not the purpose of
Jesus Christ the Church is divided.
Firstly realize the Bible is not fully understood by a single soul on
earth, yet each one among us thinks they know all. A mature and wise
person will sit together debate and dig more into it, so as to stand
on common ground and sort the contradictions. Things which are
disagreeable can be put aside and taken up again and again later until
we get to the root of it.
Here, instead of doing that we are just condemning people who do not
go by our understanding. In all this, where is the purpose of Christ
to glorify the Father? This also shows how immature in spirit and
lacking in wisdom we are. The Holy Spirit of God by whom Jesus Christ
came into this world seems to be nonexistent to the Church, the very
organization of which He is the potter and foundation.
If we all stick to glorifying the Spirit of God so that via His Spirit
and His Son we will be united as one and fulfill the purpose we are
all created for and thus we will be able to come before God our
Heavenly Father and dwell with Him.
Jesus gave us His Spirit and His Spirit is one, if we are all led by
His Spirit then we should be of one mind and one understanding. Our
being divided shows we are not led by His Spirit fully.
The Israelites were led in the desert all their forty years by the
Spirit of God Who appeared before them in the form of a pillar of
cloud in the day and a pillar of fire in the night. The Israelites
were a very large group of not less than 1- 2 million people and
surely everyone may have not been able to see the pillar which was
before them all throughout their forty years walk. They trusted each
other and followed those ahead of them who could see the pillar.
The number four symbolizes this world (4 ends/corners of this world, 4
seasons etc.) thus forty years symbolizes the earthly life of God抯
people.
We the people of God do not have our eyes focused on the Pillar and we
do not trust each other therefore are walking in groups and in
different directions, sometimes coming together and sometimes walking
in opposite directions.
Let us all open our spiritual eyes and the magnificent Pillar which
leads us through this life which is like a desert, sometimes having
beautiful oasis and sometimes just endless sand hills in all
directions. Every time irrespective of the situation the Lord provided
for them and will surely provide for us also. They did not need to
work for their food or their personal needs, it was all provided.
Their cloths did not wear out nor did their shoes. They had to just
concentrate of the forces which opposed them and battle them,
completely destroying them. This was possible because they followed
the Pillar, obeyed instructions of the Lord and carried their CROSS
(the Ark of Covenant).
If we learn from them and follow the good things they did into our
earthly walk, it will be very easy and we will reach our destination
very soon. Like they crossed the river Jordan (which means
inheritance) to reach their promise land, we too will receive our
inheritance as sons and enter our Promise Land - the (Upper) Heavens.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord, we are all a broken family, divided in mind, body and spirit,
one brother against another. Lord, we pray that we stop focusing on
ourselves and start focusing on You so that we are united in You and
by You we are provided and protected. Help us Lord that by carrying
our CROSS and being led by You as a Pillar before us confront and
destroy the forces which appose us from reaching our destination. ..
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
Exodus 13:21-22
21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead
the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, so as to
go by day and night.
22 He did not take away the pillar of cloud by day or the pillar of
fire by night from before the people.
Deuteronomy 8:1-6
1 "Every commandment which I command you today you must be careful to
observe, that you may live and multiply, and go in and possess the
land of which the LORD swore to your fathers.
2 "And you shall remember that the LORD your God led you all the way
these forty years in the wilderness, to humble you and test you, to
know what was in your heart, whether you would keep His commandments
or not.
3 "So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna
which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make
you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by
every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD.
4 "Your garments did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell
these forty years.
5 "You should know in your heart that as a man chastens his son, so
the LORD your God chastens you.
6 "Therefore you shall keep the commandments of the LORD your God, to
walk in His ways and to fear Him.
Exodus 16:35
35 And the children of Israel ate manna forty years, until they came
to an inhabited land; they ate manna until they came to the border of
the land of Canaan.
Numbers 11:31-34
31 And there went forth a wind from the LORD, and brought quails from
the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a day's journey on
this side, and as it were a day's journey on the other side, round
about the camp, and as it were two cubits high upon the face of the
earth.
32 And the people stood up all that day, and all that night, and all
the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that gathered least
gathered ten homers: and they spread them all abroad for themselves
round about the camp.
33 And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was
chewed, the wrath of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the
LORD smote the people with a very great plague.
34 And he called the name of that place Kibrothhattaavah: because
there they buried the people that lusted.
Deuteronomy 29:2-7
2 And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen
all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto
Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land;
3 The great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and
those great miracles:
4 Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to
see, and ears to hear, unto this day.
5 And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are
not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot.
6 Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong
drink: that ye might know that I am the LORD your God.
7 And when ye came unto this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon
(symbolizing Satan the beast), and Og the king of Bashan (symbolizing
Satan the dragon - Lucifer), came out against us unto battle, and we
smote them:

*The Lord will speak to His people just in time*
*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,*
We see in the Bible the Lord gives warnings through His messengers over the
ages but in the season we see He spoke in direct words.
Last Sunday at my session I was preaching on certain serious problems which
the Church is going to face as the Lord has written in the book of
Lamentations. I spoke on the many senseless prayers which many Churches are
making like praying for global peace or peace between unbelievers (people of
the world) and Christians.
In the Bible as also warned by Jesus about the great calamities which will
come in this world also Jesus warned as a Christian this world will hate
you. What is written we cannot change irrespective of how much we pray or
how hard we pray. We can possibly delay an event it but not cancel it.
In the Bible we see the Lord warns and is doing even now through His elect
so that like the Israelites (and even some non Israelites) who followed the
instructions as given by Moses during the Passover in Egypt were saved we
too can be save from these calamities. The calamities if written or declared
by the Lord will not disappear but will pass us if we abide by His word.
We can pray for our fellow brethren for protection when problems come, but
we cannot pray for the attitude of the whole world against Christians to
change. Thou we can prayer for the attitude of some specific few to change.
Gird yourself and pray for yourself, your brethren who are faint in heart
and for the young also, for what the Lord declared will surely come to pass.
*[Prayer Starter]*
Lord, we thank You for revealing Yourself to us and making us your people.
We thank You for the Word which You gave us to instruct us through the
desert of life. We also thank You for leading us through this life like a
pillar of fire like You did to the Israelites through their Exodus. Lord
open our eyes that we may see You as a pillar and follow...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
*[Reference Scriptures]*
*Lamentations 2:17-18*
17 The LORD hath done that which he had devised; he hath fulfilled his word
that he had commanded in the days of old: he hath thrown down, and hath not
pitied: and he hath caused thine enemy to rejoice over thee, he hath set up
the horn of thine adversaries.
18 Their heart cried unto the Lord, O wall of the daughter of Zion, let
tears run down like a river day and night: give thyself no rest; let not the
apple of thine eye cease.
19 Arise, cry out in the night: in the beginning of the watches pour out
thine heart like water before the face of the Lord: lift up thy hands toward
him for the life of thy young children, that faint for hunger in the top of
every street.
*Exodus 12:21-29*
21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw
out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.
22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in
the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that
is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until
the morning.
23 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth
the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass
over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses
to smite you.
24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons
for ever.
25 And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the LORD
will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this
service.
26 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What
mean ye by this service?
27 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD'S passover, who
passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the
Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and
worshipped.
28 And the children of Israel went away, and did as the LORD had commanded
Moses and Aaron, so did they.
29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn
in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne
unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the
firstborn of cattle.

The Lord says enough is enough, He love his Bride dearly
Isaiah 59:6-7
5 They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the
spider’s web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that
which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.
6 Their webs shall not become garments, neither
shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are
works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their
hands.
I told you in one of my previous (16th Oct) mails the 2 and
a half days which I was very sick and hospitalized I
was constantly having visions and there were all together 3
visions which were continuing all these 2 and half days, day and
night. These 3 visions were all concerning the Church and
the reason the calamities it is seeing and will see
in the near days. It does not mean the Church will not
grow. The Church will grow but only those who girt themselves by
the Word of God. The remaining part will see things like or
more than what the Jews experienced. It does not mean
a person like Hitler will rise but mostly natural
disasters, hunger, diseases and unexplained things will crush and
destroy these people. Which means God Himself will get the
job done.
One of these 3 reasons I shared a few days after I resumed
which is on the 18th of October and which was to do
with underground caves. That soul which was ceaselessly
floating in the underground caves without light and fresh
air was the Church. I did also share with you that
due to long periods of staying in the caves the rocks along
the walls started taking forms of manmade gods.
The second vision surprised me and which I will share today
because of the message. I saw unbelievers who were
business people (competitors and business colleagues) pinning
me down on the floor and performing black magic on me. They
put ash and other things on my face and around me
like the witchcraft the heathens do. They bond my hands to
the floor with strings which the unbelievers use for their
rituals (they cast words and bind the string).
I had to get free but did not have the strength to do so
but I knew by taking the Name of Jesus I could. So I
started shouting the Name of Jesus loudly again and again.
Initially some ash went into my mouth and made it difficult to
shout the Name of Jesus, but I did not stop and slowly I
found my handing getting free and I could rise.
It was not I who was pinned down but the Church which was.
And those people who pinned the Church down were not
unbelievers but were believers and that too, Church
leaders.
Running a Church or ministry is become such a fierce
competition and the leaders of the organization do
anything and everything even which one may not imagine just to
be one up the others. The foundation of these organizations
is not Christ - The Rock but money, power and fame.
One feels ashamed which one meets the Pastors and leaders
of these various churches of any event which calls
all churches to unite and be built in Christ and His Word.
The first thing these people are worried of is of their
cows (people who give good tithes) that they may go
to other churches. Some do not feel ashamed to directly
ask, what is the monetary benefit for sending their people? They
are not concern that their people will receive spiritual
food and grow in the Lord, becoming better
Christians; but they are concern more on how they can be
one up among the other Pastors or other churches; or how
they will run the overheads of the show they are
running if the people go.
For them either God does not exist on earth but is only in
Heaven or mostly their God can only advice but not do
anything when it comes to running a church. They call
themselves believers but are spiritually heathens.
It is these reasons which has been angering God since a
long time and now He will arise to do something about
it.
He loves His bride dearly and will not allow this harm to
continue longer. He has been giving warnings after
warning since ages but now He says enough is enough. Better
change or face the tornado (wrath) of the Lord.
Pray not that this tornado not come for it is written it
will and so will surely come. But pray that you and
your dear ones are not among those who will be hit by this
tornado. Especially pray for the young (spiritually growing) who
are victims to the selfish, hard hearted, greedy leaders.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You gave a great, great sacrifice for your Church
which is your people. Your sacrifice cannot be
nullified due to a few hard hearted people. Lord, like You
demonstrated your wrath on the stiff-necked Israelites
after warning them numerous time, in the same way You
are warning us of the calamities. Lord, we pray for
ourselves if we have been not abiding by your Word. We also
pray for our near and dear ones including those
spiritually connected to us. Lord, do not harden our hearts
but by your abundance grace bring us to realization and
repentance. Also give us the boldness to speak out
those who are harming your bride...
We make this prayer in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Isaiah 56:8-12
8 The Lord GOD, who gathers the outcasts of Israel,
says, "Yet I will gather to him Others besides those who
are gathered to him."
9 All you beasts of the field, come to devour, All
you beasts in the forest.
10 His watchmen are blind, They are all ignorant;
They are all dumb dogs, They cannot bark; Sleeping, lying
down, loving to slumber.
11 Yes, they are greedy dogs Which never have
enough. And they are shepherds Who cannot understand; They all
look to their own way, Every one for his own gain, From his
own territory.
12 "Come," one says, "I will bring wine, And we will
fill ourselves with intoxicating drink; Tomorrow will
be as today, And much more abundant."
Jeremiah 52:12-14
12 Set up the standard on the walls of Babylon; Make
the guard strong, Set up the watchmen, Prepare the ambushes.
For the LORD has both devised and done What He spoke
against the inhabitants of Babylon.
13 O you who dwell by many waters, Abundant in
treasures, Your end has come, The measure of your covetousness.
14 The LORD of hosts has sworn by Himself: "Surely I
will fill you with men, as with locusts, And they shall
lift up a shout against you."
Joel 1:5-15
5 Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye
drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off
from your mouth.
6 For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and
without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he
hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.
7 He hath laid my vine waste, and barked my fig
tree: he hath made it clean bare, and cast it away; the branches
thereof are made white.
8 Lament like a virgin girded with sackcloth for the
husband of her youth.
9 The meat offering and the drink offering is cut
off from the house of the LORD; the priests, the LORD’S
ministers, mourn.
10 The field is wasted, the land mourneth; for the
corn is wasted: the new wine is dried up, the oil languisheth.
11 Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye
vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the
harvest of the field is perished.
12 The vine is dried up, and the fig tree
languisheth; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the
apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered:
because joy is withered away from the sons of men.
13 Gird yourselves, and lament, ye priests: howl, ye
ministers of the altar: come, lie all night in sackcloth,
ye ministers of my God: for the meat offering and the drink
offering is withholden from the house of your God.
14 Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly,
gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the
house of the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD,
15 Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at
hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.

Evil spirits fear Hell
Luke 8:31 - And they entreated him that he would not command them to
depart into the abyss.
It is an irony in childhood and even now many adults think that Hell
is the kingdom of Satan and a place where Satan rules. I have seen
many a picture which shows ugly looking creatures holding weapons in
hand rejoicing while humans are burning in pots and others being
tortured in other ways. The artist must have imagined Hell like a
cannibal tribes in jungles of Africa.
Man who has limited knowledge and due to that makes even the Heavens
like earth. Due to this limited knowledge they do not know God and
thus do suffer in their life. They not only are deprived for the
blessing which they have already been given, they also glorify their
enemy and make him to the level of God doing just what their enemy
desired.
With regards to Hell (Gehenna in New Testament and Valley of Hinnom in
Old Testament) in the Old Testament it was symbolically put to the
people as the valley outside the town where all the garbage of the
town was burnt. There was fire burning but that did not mean the whole
huge valley was always on fire. The fire was only where the garbage
was. One should realize the lepers who were cast out also dwelt in
this valley. In the Old Testament and New Testament there are two
words Sheol and Abyss respectively (also known as pit) actually refer
to lower Heavens which includes Hell and Grave. Hell is also described
as the lowest pit. Evil spirits cannot go to Grave or upper Sheol /
Abyss but only those who believe in Jesus Christ sleep there after
death to rise on Judgment Day.
Hell is simply put by Paul as a prison. A place where a soul is
restricted to burn within by the evil the held in them until their
spirit life perishes. This place is controlled by the Angels of God.
Man has glorified Satan to the level of God and are believing like the
heathens i.e. the Hindus in India have a very imaginative concept of
god(s) and evil god(s) (whom they confuse as also being holy i.e.
Raavan is also considered to be a holy sage / saint).
It would be better than imagining things we study the Bible and understand.
A spirit (which translates as breath or air) being are not humans and
do not have physical form. They are beyond this physical world and
have the ability to take any physical form. They have a form which is
defined by their soul / heart / nature and this is not physical or
restricted by space.
Evil spirit or fallen angels are similar to an Angel of God but their
form (not physical but spiritual) is ugly because their nature is
evil. During a period in time God had taken away their powers
(restricted - leaving that of Lucifer) and therefore are not capable
to do what an Angel can do. They use man and build their powers
through man.
The war good and evil is not between Satan and God but between Satan
and man, with God backing man. Jesus' sacrifice was not to destroy
Satan but the plans of Satan concerning people of God. To destroy
Satan Jesus Christ will come again once He has found all His sheep. To
destroy Satan and all the fallen angels Jesus Christ along with elect
will only give a shout which is declare His Holy Name.
To get the truth we need to understand man first. Man is a spirit been
made similar to an Angel, which is uni-gender but man has lost powers
and was restricted to this body of flesh when he lost the 3 fruits of
righteousness, holiness and truth, when sin entered him. To tap to the
power like that of an Angel we need to overcome our flesh which is
glued by our carnal being. Jesus being perfect could do this and
showed us this by His transfiguration.
People do not know that Satan (word is a plural word) does not always
refer only to Lucifer. It refers to his team which includes the beast
(who represents him) and the other fallen angels. Lucifer (king of
Tyre / King of Babylon / dragon / serpent) has been bounded since long
and his show has been run by the beast (prince of Tyre / beast / young
lion). Lucifer (symbolized in Revelation as the dragon which is a
mythological character) and the beast are more than an Angel, but the
powers of the beast has also been restricted like that of the other
fallen angels. He is the one who has been doing all work of making
himself as gods both among heathens and many Christians (as human
spirit/s glorified equal to God / God the Son).
We have powers over fallen angels and even over the beast, but that
does not mean we can kill them. Jesus too did not do that. As humans
(in Christ), we have powers to disable their work and to bind their
work and cast them out of the lives of humans. The only way to destroy
them is to send to Hell where they suffer and perish. This is the
authority which Jesus held and which we too can have as we grow in the
knowledge of Him; Jesus gives us this authority when we are fully
matured in Him.
Do not be deceived by Satan and his team but by the knowledge and
understand of God, and being a part of Jesus Christ crush Satan and
his plans to destroy us.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord, by making man eat of the tree of Good and Bad, Satan has
deceived man to see bad in all creation which is good and not in
himself. Man has been disillusioned of the truth. By sin Satan g\ahs
bought man under the wrath and curse of God, but by your sacrifice You
have made peace between God and man and canceled the curses. Lord
Jesus, help us grow in the knowledge of You so that we open our eyes
to know Who You are and who we are in You...
This prayer we make in your mighty Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
Deuteronomy 32:21-22
21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; They
have provoked me to anger with their vanities: And I will move them to
jealousy with those that are not a people; I will provoke them to
anger with a foolish nation.
22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, And burneth unto the lowest
Sheol, And devoureth the earth with its increase, And setteth on fire
the foundations of the mountains.
Isaiah 14:4-17
4 that you will take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and
say: "How the oppressor has ceased, The golden city ceased!
5 The LORD has broken the staff of the wicked, The scepter of the rulers;
6 He who struck the people in wrath with a continual stroke, He who
ruled the nations in anger, Is persecuted and no one hinders.
7 The whole earth is at rest and quiet; They break forth into singing.
8 Indeed the cypress trees rejoice over you, And the cedars of
Lebanon, Saying, 'Since you were cut down, No woodsman has come up
against us.'
9 "Hell from beneath is excited about you, To meet you at your
coming; It stirs up the dead for you, All the chief ones of the earth;
It has raised up from their thrones All the kings of the nations.
10 They all shall speak and say to you: 'Have you also become as weak
as we? Have you become like us?
11 Your pomp is brought down to Sheol, And the sound of your stringed
instruments; The maggot is spread under you, And worms cover you.'
12 "How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into heaven, I
will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the
mount of the congregation On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the
Most High.'
15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, To the lowest depths of the Pit.
16 "Those who see you will gaze at you, And consider you, saying: 'Is
this the man who made the earth tremble, Who shook kingdoms,
17 Who made the world as a wilderness And destroyed its cities, Who
did not open the house of his prisoners?'
Psalms 91:13
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion [roar] and adder: the young lion
and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
Revelation 13:4
4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and
they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? Who is able
to make war with him?"
Revelations 16:13-14
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth
of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of
the false prophet.
14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to
the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the
battle of that great day of God Almighty.
Revelations 17:7-8
7 But the angel said to me, "Why did you marvel? I will tell you the
mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the
seven heads and the ten horns.
8 "The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the
bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth
will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the
foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not,
and yet is.

Prayer in Christian Life
Daniel 7:13-14
13 Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regardeth not thee, O king,
nor the decree that thou hast signed, but maketh his petition three
times a day.
14 Then the king, when he heard these words, was sore displeased with himself, and set his heart on Daniel to deliver him: and he laboured till the going down of the sun to deliver him.
Daniel along with Job and Noah were considered by the Lord as a very righteous and so they become important examples to us. And looking into their life and testimonies we get a lot to learn.
In today's message we see Daniel got into problem because he prayed to the Lord and not to the king as per the statue passed by the king which stated that no one with bow to any god other than the king.
What we need to look at is the prayer life of Daniel so that we learn
from him. Daniel never sat for hours and most of the day to pray. We
see he sat 3 times a day before the Lord and those 3 times were not
long periods. This we learn because the people had to wait to catch
him praying. Had he sat for long hours they could have easily caught
him.
If we look at the prayer life of Jesus, He did not sit all time
praying. He would often go for short periods to prayer, at times
making people wait. There were very rare or important moments of His life wherein He prayed long hours. If one sees His prayers, they were short and powerful. His prayers before any miracle were just simple words but were full of faith. He made either a prayer of declaration or of thanksgiving. There was only once during his weakest moment which was in the Garden of Gethsemane that He made a prayer of request and that too He later canceled it.
Prayers are very important for they help to build us and the Church as
a whole. There are different types of prayers; the prayer which is
communicating and being in touch with the Lord is not what we should be doing for short periods of a day. We as Christians are suppose to be continually in touch with the Lord and of this Paul also talks of to be ceaselessly.
In the books of Moses via the sacrifices the Lord instructs us the
required quantities of the different kinds of prayers, generally and
also at different times (both earthly - daily, weekly, monthly and
yearly and spiritual - times of difficulties, repentance etc.) as
being minimum okay by Him.
Along with praying, God wants us to witness Him by our deeds and our way of living. As we learn and come to know more of God and His
Kingdom we will find our prayers short and powerful (that does not
mean we will pray less often). Our relationship and communication with Him will improve and will be ceaselessly. Any place and anytime we lift our eyes to Him and He will answer. We will ask less and receive more by just thanking Him. Many things we may not ask but will take authority and rebuke the devourer and human weaknesses because we will know what we have already received but are deprived from.
Be not just a praying Christian, this is not what makes God proud of
us. If God has to be proud of us as He was of Daniel, Job and Noah let
us be a praying and witnessing Christian; witnessing God not just with bold words but with our lives living in His ways and letting His glory shine through us.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You showed us how to live a perfect righteous Christian
life. We also learn for the anointed patriarchs who made attempts to
walk your path. Lord Jesus, we received light in our lives through You
and this is not for ourselves alone but to let is shine unto others by
our deeds and our living. Lord, help us to weight all things good in
our life according to measure which pleases You...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
Ezekiel 14:13-16
13 Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing
grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break
the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will
cut off man and beast from it:
14 Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they
should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the
Lord GOD.
15 If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil
it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through because of
the beasts:
16 Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord GOD,
they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters; they only shall be
delivered, but the land shall be desolate.
Matthew 6:5-8
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for
they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They
have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou
hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy
Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for
they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what
things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
Matthew 26:36-44
36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed,
saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me:
nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and
saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit
indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my
Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy
will be done.
43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time,
saying the same words.
Luke 6:11-19
11 And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.
12 And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a
mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
13 And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them
he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;
14 Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,
15 Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes,
16 And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.
17 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the
company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all
Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;
18 And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed.
19 And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue
out of him, and healed them all.

Have not just Good Soil
Mark 4:8 - And others fell into the good ground, and yielded fruit,
growing up and increasing; and brought forth, thirtyfold, and
sixtyfold, and a hundredfold.
We must have heard this parable of Jesus hundreds of times and we
mostly concentrate on the difference in soil quality.
If you are into farming or growing plants having a good soil is
primary to plantation but things do not end there. In the parable
Jesus says 'and yielded fruit, growing up and increasing', this He
says yield forth a great harvest which was multifold.
To 'yield fruit, grow up and increase' requires one to have day to day
commitment. Just putting seed into good soil will not give you a full
grown fruit bearing tree. Day to day nourishment (watering),
protection (from diseases / corruption) and from beast of the field /
birds of the air is required especially when the plant is young. Once
the plant becomes a tree the caretaker can relax.
Who is/are the care taker/s?
The persons sent by the Lord into our live to bless us are caretakers,
but they alone are not fully responsible. In the start they may have
greater responsibility but soon the weight falls more on us who also
are caretakers to see the growing of fruitful plant in us which is our
inner man.
We need to ask ourselves do we play our part of monitoring, giving
spiritual food and strengthening our inner man. Do we realize the
infections, corruptions and trampling our inner-man goes through every
day in this world? What are we doing about this?
Have a repent full heart and surrendering heart to the Lord is good.
But also have wisdom to make sure to feed, nourish and protect the
seed that has now died and become into a plant. Make sure the plant
yields fruits and spreads to give comfort unto others and spread the
seeds so that other good soil too yield and be fruitful.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, ever since we have come to know You and have accepted You
as Lord and Master into our lives we have become from seed to plant.
Lord, we want not to be just a plant but like You instructed we want
to yield fruit, grow strong, spread comforting others and being
instruments to growth of other fruit bearing plants...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
Mark 4:14-20
14 The sower soweth the word.
15 And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; and
when they have heard, straightway cometh Satan, and taketh away the
word which hath been sown in them.
16 And these in like manner are they that are sown upon the rocky
places, who, when they have heard the word, straightway receive it
with joy;
17 and they have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then,
when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word,
straightway they stumble.
18 And others are they that are sown among the thorns; these are they
that have heard the word,
19 and the cares of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and
the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh
unfruitful.
20 And those are they that were sown upon the good ground; such as
hear the word, and accept it, and bear fruit, thirtyfold, and
sixtyfold, and a hundredfold.
Matthew 7:17-20
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt
tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt
tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and
cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
John 15:1-8
1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.
2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every
branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more
fruit.
3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of
itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide
in me.
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.

Jesus perfected and exceeded Moses
Mark 3:13-15
13 And he goeth up into the mountain, and calleth unto him whom he
himself would; and they went unto him.
14 And he appointed twelve, that they might be with him, and that he
might send them forth to preach,
15 and to have authority to cast out demons:
If one looks at things which Jesus and Moses did to start their
ministry (concerning the people of God) from a bird's eye view, you
will see what Moses did was the shadow of what Jesus did.
Both started their prime activity by first going up into the mountain
communicating with God and both set off with twelve. Moses divided the
people of Israel into twelve tribes and Jesus set forth His ministry
via His twelve disciples. In the case of Moses when the Levies were
set apart the sons of Joseph were divided and the twelve numbers
maintained. Similarly in the case of Jesus' team when Judas died
Matthias was added so that the numbers were maintained, even when
Solomon who was well instructed by his father David also set his rule
of his kingdom via his 12 officers.
Without the twelve tribes Israel could not enter their Promised Land
and we without our twelve cannot enter Heaven. It is not because
twelve was a good number or we also need to be divided by the number.
This was done so that we do the real thing which they imitated. The
number twelve represents the twelve Fruit(s) of the Holy Spirit which
are the pillars or what Heaven is build on. Nine of them are as stated
by Paul in Galatians 5:22-23 and are those which we can receive and
grow on in this world. The balance three (also stated by Paul in
Ephesians 5:9 are righteousness, truth and holiness) are those which
Adam and Eve lost in the Garden of Eden when they disobeyed God. These
fruits are those for which Jesus Christ sacrificed so that by His
sacrifice and Spirit we may be able to pursue them and receive them
from Him. Without these Fruit(s) our spirits are considered corrupt
and a corrupt spirit cannot enter the Upper Heavens where the glory of
God is. This is required for the lower heavens which include the world
we live in, the spiritual level known as grave and hell where the
unbelieving souls go after death will all cease to exist and the whole
of Heaven will be realigned.
Moses was given authority which was symbolized by the rod he held. The
Levies who were priest had authority via the Ark of Covenant which
they bore. Jesus gave us authority by the knowledge of Him and by the
CROSS (not crucifix) which we carry (therefore to understand the real
CROSS we need to study the Ark of Covenant and its design). For both,
without this being done their purpose was lost and that purpose was to
do with driving away and destroying demons or fallen angels.
You may ask, what were the Israelites to do with demons? The
Israelites needed this authority so that they can crossover and defeat
the Canaanites and other tribes which dwelled in the Promised Land. We
need to have this authority for we too need to enter our Promise Land
which is Heaven and be part of the Body of God the Son which was once
held by Satan and his fallen Angels and which they try to keep away
from us.
It is very important we mature our faith to the point of fullness
which is to have authority and this is only possible by the knowledge
of who Christ is and by our carrying our (the) CROSS.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You sent Moses and others to give us required resources and the
understanding of how we can come back unto You. When they could not
deliver this fully You came Yourself as man and made it possible to us
to be successful. With You leading us our success is already written.
Lord we pray that we be among those who are with You in the victory.
This we may not perish but receive eternal life in You...
This prayer we make in your Mighty Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]

14 And the stones were according to the names of the children of
Israel, twelve, according to their names, like the engravings of a
signet, every one with his name, according to the twelve tribes.
Joshua 4:15-20
15 And the LORD spake unto Joshua, saying,
16 Command the priests that bear the ark of the testimony, that they
come up out of Jordan.
17 Joshua therefore commanded the priests, saying, Come ye up out of Jordan.
18 And it came to pass, when the priests that bare the ark of the
covenant of the LORD were come up out of the midst of Jordan, and the
soles of the priests' feet were lifted up unto the dry land, that the
waters of Jordan returned unto their place, and flowed over all his
banks, as they did before.
19 And the people came up out of Jordan on the tenth day of the first
month, and encamped in Gilgal, in the east border of Jericho.
20 And those twelve stones, which they took out of Jordan, did Joshua
pitch in Gilgal.

have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in

Acts 1:15-26
15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples,
and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and
twenty,)
16 Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled,
which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning
Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus.
17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.
18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and
falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels
gushed out.
19 And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as
that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say,
The field of blood.
20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be
desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another
take.
21 Wherefore of these men which have companied with us all the time
that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
22 Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was
taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his
resurrection.
23 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed
Justus, and Matthias.
24 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of
all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,
25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which
Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.
26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias;
and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite;
the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the
eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of
one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were
transparent glass.
Revelation 22:2
2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river,
was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and

healing of the nations.

9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness [holiness] and
righteousness and truth;)

Unforgiving Sin
Mark 3:28-30
28 Verily I say unto you, All their sins shall be forgiven unto the
sons of men, and their blasphemies wherewith soever they shall
blaspheme:
29 but whosoever shall blaspheme against the Holy Spirit hath never
forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin:
30 because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
We really need to wake up to the seriousness of blaspheming the Holy
Spirit. People think they never do this but they do not realize they
commit this sin when they call an anointed person a person with evil
spirit. An anointed person is a person with the Holy Spirit and when
anyone calls such a person with an evil spirit means calling the Holy
Spirit an evil spirit.
People need to understand that symbolically the Lord showed us that
Moses who was one of the most anointed persons was not forgiven for
this sin and did not enter the Promised Land which symbolized Heaven,
then where do we stand entering Heaven if we are found guilty of this
sin.
The first rock which Moses was allowed to strike for water symbolized
God the Son but the second rock represented the Holy Spirit. The first
Rock has been struck for the sake of mankind but the second cannot be
struck. If one needs any spiritual needs the person needs to just ask
and the second Rock will surely give. Moses will enter Heaven because
what he struck was symbolic rock but we who strike the real second
Rock will not have that privilege like Moses.
There are many anointed person operating in the flesh in different
measures and people mistake this fleshy control to an evil spirit. It
is best to keep one's mouth shut on this matter unless the Lord has
revealed this. This is not only concerning peoples to stand on stages
and preach but also a believer who is baptized in the Holy Spirit.
The risk factor of loss is too great for us to open our mouth and
speak such words. It is like putting all our life’s earnings and all
that we hold to a single throw of a dice.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord, we pray that You give us control over our tongue that we do not
let any loose thoughts be spoken and get us to lose greatly. Lord give
us the Spirit to discern between flesh and spirit problems...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
Exodus 17:5-6
5 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take
with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest
the river, take in thine hand, and go.
6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and
thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that
the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of
Israel.
Numbers 20:7-12
7 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
8 Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and
Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and
it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them
water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their
beasts drink.
9 And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as he commanded him.
10 And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the
rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you
water out of this rock?
11 And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock
twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank,
and their beasts also.
12 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me
not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore
ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given
them.
Deuteronomy 32:48-52
48 And the LORD spake unto Moses that selfsame day, saying,
49 Get thee up into this mountain Abarim, unto mount Nebo, which is
in the land of Moab, that is over against Jericho; and behold the land
of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel for a possession:
50 And die in the mount whither thou goest up, and be gathered unto
thy people; as Aaron thy brother died in mount Hor, and was gathered
unto his people:
51 Because ye trespassed against me among the children of Israel at
the waters of Meribah-Kadesh, in the wilderness of Zin; because ye
sanctified me not in the midst of the children of Israel.
52 Yet thou shalt see the land before thee; but thou shalt not go
thither unto the land which I give the children of Israel.
1 Corinthians 10:1-4
1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how
that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the
sea;
2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that
spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
John 5:16
16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you,
that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should
remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may
give it you.
Matthew 5:22
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother
without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever
shall say to his brother, Raca [senseless], shall be in danger of the
council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool [Godless], shall be in
danger of hell fire.

To MountZion - Page 38 Empty THE GREAT DAY OF THE LORD IS NEAR

Post  Admin on Tue 26 Oct 2010, 12:59 pm

The great day of the Lord is near
Zephaniah 1:14 - The great day of the LORD is near, it is
near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of
the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
People who do not study or have understanding of scriptures
mock or make fun when they see scriptures like 'the
Day of the Lord is at hand' or regarding 'Judgment Day'.
One needs to understand almost the entire Bible is written about
a period of 5500 - 6000years (about 3000years before
birth of man Jesus, from the times of Noah and about
2500 years and less than 3000 years after birth of man
Jesus).
Jesus warned people of Judgment day even during his time on
earth, even though He was aware about (approximately)
when it would happen because He knew scriptures well. He was not
trying to mislead them or just frighten them. Even today we
can warn people about Judgment Day just as Jesus did
and this we will understand only when we understand
human life.
I have written before and again write, people who have not
accepted (believe) Jesus Christ will die and go to
hell where their soul and spirit perishes, but the ones who
believe irrespective of how good or bad they are they go to
sleep (a spiritual level called grave). On Judgment
Day the souls that are in hell and yet not perished
will die but all those who are asleep will wake up (resurrect) to
be judged by the Son of Man - Jesus Christ. For them time
of sleep is just a moment. It is like they died and
are now alive, like when we go to sleep and wake up, we do
not realize the amount of time we have slept but inside we feel
the refreshing. It is like we prepare for the morning in
the evening itself and not think there are 10 to 12
hours left, for the time we sleep we are not in control of
matters or can do anything.
The Day of the Lord or the Day or the Lord's wrath is
unlike the Day of Judgment. It is a period connected
with earthly life and people living during a specific
period of time. It is a time the Lord is going to make His
presence manifested more like He did to the people of
Israel for the 40 years during the times of Moses and He
will take to account all people who continually disobey Him
even after many warnings. It is a time when great
disasters will occur in this world but only for those who
continually disobey God. It does not mean any one who sins will
be punished; it is very specific disobeying with
regards to things which are holy unto the Lord.
For example during the time of Aaron all drunkards were not
destroyed by fire but the sons of Aaron were because
they stood on the table of sacrifice in a drunken state.
During these times even those who reject Jesus Christ will
experience great turmoil in their lives. This is the
time of great harvesting when many will believe and accept
Christ. This day does not mean a day, but the word used means a
period of time. It could mean a few months or even a few
years.
According to my understanding of scriptures this time is
very near to us and we may see this period or our
next generation would. Thus we need really take things very
seriously and prepare ourselves and our children for this day. We
need to take account of what we are doing and check if we
are walking in the way of the Lord, especially in
those things which are holy unto the Lord.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, we thank You for enlightening us by your Word of the
times ahead. Your people walk in light and You
prepare them and build them. Lord straighten our crocked legs
(lives) and hands (doings). By your Word and Spirit
strengthen us and help us to be a medium to bring
others too into light so they too are saved...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Zephaniah 1:12-18
12 And it shall come to pass at that time, that I
will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are
settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD
will not do good, neither will he do evil.
13 Therefore their goods shall become a booty, and
their houses a desolation: they shall also build houses, but
not inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, but not
drink the wine thereof.
14 The great day of the LORD is near, it is near,
and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the
mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and
distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness
and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
16 A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced
cities, and against the high towers.
17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they
shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the
LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and
their flesh as the dung.
18 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able
to deliver them in the day of the LORD’S wrath; but the
whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his
jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of
all them that dwell in the land.
Matthew 4:17
17 From that time Jesus began to preach and to say,
"Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
John 5:24-30
24 "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My
word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life,
and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death
into life.
25 "Most assuredly, I say to you, the hour is
coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the
Son of God; and those who hear will live.
26 "For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has
granted the Son to have life in Himself,
27 "and has given Him authority to execute judgment
also, because He is the Son of Man.
28 "Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in
which all who are in the graves will hear His voice
29 "and come forth—those who have done good,
to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil,
to the resurrection of condemnation.
30 "I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge;
and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own
will but the will of the Father who sent Me.
Matthew 24:3-13
3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the
disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will
these things be? And what will be the sign of Your
coming, and of the end of the age?"
4 And Jesus answered and said to them: "Take heed
that no one deceives you.
5 "For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the
Christ,' and will deceive many.
6 "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See
that you are not troubled; for all these things must come
to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,
and earthquakes in various places.
8 "All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and
kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My
name's sake.
10 "And then many will be offended, will betray one
another, and will hate one another.
11 "Then many false prophets will rise up and
deceive many.
12 "And because lawlessness will abound, the love of
many will grow cold.
13 "But he who endures to the end shall be saved.

To MountZion - Page 38 Empty Re: To MountZion

The throne of Solomon or the Throne of Jesus
Songs of Solomon 3:9-11
9 King Solomon made himself a chariot of the wood of Lebanon.
10 He made the pillars thereof of silver, the bottom thereof of gold,
the covering of it of purple, the midst thereof being paved with love,
for the daughters of Jerusalem.
11 Go forth, O ye daughters of Zion, and behold king Solomon with the
crown wherewith his mother crowned him in the day of his espousals,
and in the day of the gladness of his heart.
Jesus was considered a descendant of King David but was never related
with King Solomon. Jesus is considered eternal heir to the throne of
David but never to the throne of Solomon. If learns of the throne or
palaces of Solomon during his rule, they were one of the most majestic
yet Jesus Christ is never associated with this majestic throne. In
today's scripture out of the mouth of Solomon comes the truth of his
throne. This message is for us because many churches are built
connected to Solomon's throne to which Jesus is not associated with.
Firstly the throne is described as chariot or sedan chair which is a
term used for a portable throne used by the Egyptians (which means
double standards). It was made with two wheels and made for times like
wars or when the king travelled; unlike the Throne connected with
Jesus, which is made on a firm foundation.
The throne of Solomon is made with pillars of silver with the bottom /
back thereof of gold. Silver symbolizes material / worldly prosperity
(in Heaven it is to do with skills or abilities given to a soul) and
gold symbolizes spiritual riches. In the Tabernacle both these metals
were used but importance was more of gold and less of silver. In God's
Kingdom the pillars are of gold and silver too is given to us but only
as much as needed. Material blessings and skills are good and needed
but the pillars of the Church need to be build on Spiritual Fruits(s)
and gifts and for this the Word of God and the Spirit of God comes
into picture. Like I told your before the word Lebanon means
'whiteness' and timber of Lebanon symbolizes earthly righteousness
(but according to the Lord) since wood represents human body. This is
the reason the timber of Lebanon (also known as Sak wood in India)
never gets spoil or infected with any kind or termites or other
insects. It was used in the sacrifices during the times of Moses
because of this property.
The righteousness we pursue here on earth according to the Lord is
good but yet it is not sufficient, nor does it compares anywhere with
the righteousness of Jesus Christ. Wood cannot withstand fire for all
spiritual things need to withstand spiritual fire. This is the reason
righteousness is a free gift which covers us and redeems us and is
given only unto those found worthy by the Lord on the Day of Judgment.
The colors blue and scarlet were used in the construction of the
Tabernacle. The color purple has its origin with the kingdom of Tyre
which in turn is a term used for Satan and the beast in the book of
Ezekiel (king and prince of tyre). The word 'tyre' in Hebrew means
'small stone / pebble' and kingdom of Satan (includes this worldly
kingdom) is based on small truths while the Kingdom of Jesus Christ is
based on The Truth which is symbolized by Rock not stone. Any Church
which is built on the Rock is the Church of Christ but any church
built on small stones (which in Greek is 'Petros') is church connected
to Tyre.
The Lord says this throne (church) is a church made by the daughters
of Jerusalem, which refers to those who are not spiritually mature and
knowledgeable Christians.
The Lord is telling the daughters of Zion which refers to matured
Christians but yet not fully matured into sons to behold (see) this
throne of Solomon and discern it. This throne was such because Solomon
had many marriages and they included many non Israelites. Since
Solomon had knowledge of the Kingdom of God but still he was not
spiritually mature, he bowed even to the gods of his heathen wives.
Knowing the Bible or just praying will not mature us in the Kingdom of
God. We need to walk / act on / do the Word and with the help of the
Spirit of God build the Fruit(s) and gifts of the Holy Spirit and that
is true maturity and Throne of Lord Jesus Christ.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, although we are living in this world, yet we are not of
this world but of your Kingdom. We pursue the things of your Kingdom
and not the things of this world. You provide all our needs in this
world and we need not worry on them. We concentrate on building
ourselves in the precious things of your Kingdom which are forever. By
the understanding of your Word and by your Spirit work in us and build
us so that we are not connected to the throne of Solomon but to your
eternal Throne...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
Isaiah 9:6-7
6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the
government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and
establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even
forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
Jeremiah 33:16-18
16 In those days Judah will be saved, And Jerusalem will dwell
safely. And this is the name by which she will be called: THE LORD OUR
RIGHTEOUSNESS. '
17 "For thus says the LORD: ‘David shall never lack a man to sit on
the throne of the house of Israel;
18 'nor shall the priests, the Levites, lack a man to offer burnt
offerings before Me, to kindle grain offerings, and to sacrifice
continually. '"
Luke 1:30-33
30 Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have
found favor with God.
31 "And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son,
and shall call His name JESUS.
32 "He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and
the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.
33 "And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His
kingdom there will be no end."
1 Kings 11:4-8
4 For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his
heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the LORD his
God, as was the heart of his father David.
5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and
after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
6 Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and did not fully follow
the LORD, as did his father David.
7 Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the abomination of
Moab, on the hill that is east of Jerusalem, and for Molech the
abomination of the people of Ammon.
8 And he did likewise for all his foreign wives, who burned incense
and sacrificed to their gods.

Understanding evil
Matthew 27:23 - And he said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they
cried out exceedingly, saying, Let him be crucified.
There is a saying "one man's food is another man's poison". The
concept of evil and good is relative from one person to another and
therefore a debate on it can go on between mankind for years without
end. It is only when God comes in the picture that the real
understanding of good and evil is understood. We should not confuse
between evil and sin. Sin is breaking of a Commandment (law) of God.
It was only when God gave an instruction to man and man did not abide
by it, that sin came into mankind. There is no doubt that evil is the
mother / father of sin.
God did not create evil yet evil came into existence through Satan,
whom God created. We can understand evil when we understand how it
came into existence into Satan.
Satan was an important being in Heaven and in Heaven all things are
good so was Satan. Like mankind on earth eats and drinks for the
purpose of living so also in Heaven the Fruit(s) of the Tree of Life
and the precious things in Heaven (described as jewels and precious
metals) are freely available and meant to be taken as needed, but when
Satan started taken more and more of them without purpose he gave
birth to the first evil which is greed. Greed got in pride, deceit and
so on all evil came into existence in him.
God is light and light has a purpose, so also all creation of God has
purpose and that purpose is to prosper for good. God did not, does not
and will not do anything if it does have the purpose of true
prosperity. Darkness came into existence when evil came into existence
in Satan. Darkness obstructs light like evil obstructs the purpose of
God which is prosperity. Thus evil has no purpose but to destroy and
if understood is only vanity.
All what Jesus did had purpose and the purpose was for the goodness of
mankind. Each and every word and deed Jesus spoke or did was to
glorify the Father and build man, showing him the true way to the
Father. He became the first true light in man and it is this light
which is passed unto us when we receive Jesus and walk in His ways. It
is this light in us which will overcome the darkness bought into
existence by Satan.
God allowed Satan to fall so that by the testimony of the victory of
light overcoming darkness there will never be darkness again.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are light and You are before all creation. You created the
Heavens and this creation, and all beings that exist in them. You made
all things with purpose and the purpose is good. Lord, You humbled
Yourself and became a sacrifice so that through your light shining in
man the darkness even in the (lower) Heavens will cease to exist. The
glory which existed in You before creation will be restored and be
lifted higher. Lord, we pray that everything we do be with
understanding and with the right purpose so that evil will not make
home in us...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
Genesis 1:1-4
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 And the earth was waste and void; and darkness was upon the face of
the deep: and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light
from the darkness.
Proverbs 19:21
21 There are many plans in a man’s heart, Nevertheless the LORD'S
counsel-that will stand.
Luke 12:32-34
32 "Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure
to give you the kingdom.
33 "Sell what you have and give alms; provide yourselves money bags
which do not grow old, a treasure in the heavens that does not fail,
where no thief approaches nor moth destroys.
34 "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Romans 16:18-20
18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but
their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the
hearts of the simple.
19 For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on
your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple
concerning evil.
20 And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The
grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
Deuteronomy 29:9
9 "Therefore keep the words of this covenant, and do them, that you
may prosper in all that you do.
Ezekiel 28:11-19
11 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
12 "Son of man, take up a lamentation for the king of Tyre, and say
to him, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: "You were the seal of perfection,
Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; Every precious stone was your
covering: The sardius, topaz, and diamond, Beryl, onyx, and jasper,
Sapphire, turquoise, and emerald with gold. The workmanship of your
timbrels and pipes Was prepared for you on the day you were created.
14 "You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; You
were on the holy mountain of God; You walked back and forth in the
midst of fiery stones.
15 You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, Till
iniquity was found in you.
16 "By the abundance of your trading You became filled with violence
within, And you sinned; Therefore I cast you as a profane thing Out of
the mountain of God; And I destroyed you, O covering cherub, From the
midst of the fiery stones.
17 "Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted
your wisdom for the sake of your splendor; I cast you to the ground, I
laid you before kings, That they might gaze at you.
18 "You defiled your sanctuaries By the multitude of your iniquities,
By the iniquity of your trading; Therefore I brought fire from your
midst; It devoured you, And I turned you to ashes upon the earth In
the sight of all who saw you.
19 All who knew you among the peoples are astonished at you; You have
become a horror, And shall be no more forever."'"
John 17:1-5
1 Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said:
"Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may
glorify You,
2 "as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should
give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.
3 "And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true
God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
4 "I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which
You have given Me to do.
5 "And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the
glory which I had with You before the world was.
John 1:1-4
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made through him; and without him was not anything
made that hath been made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

Are you a Galilaean?
Luke 23: 6 - When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked
whether the man were a Galilaean.
A large part of the Lord's ministry and life as man Jesus
was spend in this area of Galilee. The town of
Nazareth was also in this area of Galilee. Most of the
disciples too were from Galilee.
This place is a very fertile area, so much so that the
tribe of Asher which was given this area was termed
to eat fat as bread, yield royal dainties and dip his feet
in oil.
This area which measured approximately 50miles by 30 miles
was very important because of its strategic position.
It connected the coast to the main land. The word 'Galilee'
means 'circuit'.
In spiritual life we too need to be a Galilaean connecting
the people (symbolized as sea in scriptures) to the
Promise Land. It is because of this even the final battle
between the army of Christ with the armies of Anti-Christ are
fought about this location (the city of Megiddo or
Armageddon is strategic to control this valley)
(Armageddon means mountain of crowds).
The term Gentiles (Galilee of the nations) was coined in
this location and was used for Jews (northern
Galilee) who mixed with the heathens who dwelled in this place
and merged their belief into Judaism. Similarly the
term unbeliever is not used for a person not knowing
God but to a person knowing Him and yet refusing to
acknowledge Him. The greatest enemies to the Kingdom of God
are those who sit on the fence, who try to bridge the
Kingdom of God to the worldly kingdom of flesh and carnal
desires.
It was due to the disillusioned Zealots and Patriots of
this region who longed for the Messiah but hated foreigners
and even fought among themselves, they did things which bought
the Romans to utterly destroy Jerusalem in 70AD.
Galilee even today is very critical for all believers. I am
not speaking of the place in Israel but the spiritual
Galilee which connects people to the Promise Land. We need
to be in control of this valley and we need to be one in
purpose of Christ and one among ourselves. We need to
not let the people with the spirit of anti-Christ to
take charge of Armageddon for we need to protect the harvest of
the Lord.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, everything You did gave us the depth of
understanding beyond what human eyes can see and
human mind can understand. Help your people realize You are
beyond a location or a group of people but You came
to save the world. You desire to save all mankind but
salvation is a personal choice. Strengthen your armies and
help us to take full control of the spiritual Galilee and
Armageddon.. .
We make this prayer in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

To MountZion - Page 38 Empty Re: To MountZion

Post  Admin on Wed 20 Oct 2010, 12:43 pm

There was a serious error in the mail that I sent
on the 20th with regards to my silly mistaking a
hexagon to being 8 sided so today I am resending the mail again
with the required corrections.

Honey and milk are under thy tongue

Song of Solomon 4:11 - Thy lips, O my spouse, drop as the
honeycomb: honey and milk are under thy tongue; and the
smell of thy garments is like the smell of Lebanon.

When one reads the book Song of Solomon without proper
understanding it can scandalize any normal person.
The scripture right before today's message talks of sister bride
lover.

If one understands the symbolism of this then only one will
understand the richness of the songs by Solomon.

In spirit the male gender - son / brother refers to a
mature spirit person almost in the image (nature) of
God, while a daughter / sister refers to one still in the process
of spiritual maturity having still the human nature not
overcome. Therefore in scripture we see Heaven is only for
sons and not for daughters. When God created man and before
sin came into man it is written 'And God created man in his
own image, in the image of God created he him; male and
female created he them' (has male gender of in spirit man and
woman were made of one gender male). When God created woman
in the physical He created her from the bone of man (a rib is
a bone without marrow), a bone symbolizes character or nature and
marrow spirit. None of Jesus' bones were broken for his character
/ nature was perfect.

In today's scripture the Lord is telling His bride which is
us, as how He imagines us to be (which means how we
need to be unto Him). The 3 factors are our lips are like
honeycomb, honey and milk under our tongue and our garments
smell like Lebanon.

It may sound weird that the Lord compares beautiful lips to
honeycomb. In worldly life a lover would use terms
like petals of a rose or compare it to velvet etc. but only
a foodie would think of honeycomb. But when one studies the
symbolism of the honeycomb we understand the immense
depth of guidance the Lord is giving us through these
scriptures.

A honeycomb is a mass hexagonal wax cells - the hexagon is
made of 6 sides. People think the number 6 or 666 is
an evil number because it is connected to Satan. Understand no
number is evil nor any number like 7 or 8 will make you
holier. Numbers in the Bible have a purpose to make
understand spiritual things which are hidden. The number 7
relates to the 7 Spirits of God (Holy Spirit) and is
connected to Christ (which means One with the
Spirit). God the Son is God and so holy that if we stand before
the real Him we will not live. It is only because He
humbled Himself that we been sinners can come before
Him. The same is with the Holy Spirit Who also is God and
is holy. The Spirit of God is 1 yet in scriptures we see 7
Spirits of God. This is because the Spirit of God too
humbled Himself and took the form of the 7 Spirit for the
redemption of man like light refracts into 7 colors when it
enters a medium like water. It is this reason we can
receive the Holy Spirit even in this imperfect body.
When we say Christ it includes God the Son and God the Holy
Spirit Who humbled themselves. The whole Bible is all about
Christ. It is amazing to know if one takes any
scripture and adds the numbers each any every scripture has
the base 7. One can easy catch any one if anyone modifies,
deletes or add even a word to the original text.

The number 8 in the Bible represents Renewed Man (a born
again) and is the number associated with man Jesus.
One also get more knowledge of this when we study human DNA
(which is like the Bible in man, made of books, chapters,
sentences and words) and a perfect DNA is man without
any sickness or any problem. It is because of changes in
the DNA that sicknesses arise in man. It is the RNA which
takes the 8 enzymes as a reference and decodes the
DNA and causes cells to multiple and organs to be
formed and man to be made even from a single cell. Jesus is the
reference by which the Holy Spirit makes us perfect as in
the image God made us before sin entered man and
corrupted the Truth in man. This will also give an
understanding as to how healings happen when we speak the Word.
The Name Jesus has the numerical value 888 (in olden days
there were no numerical so man used the Hebrew
Alphabets as numbers. It is like using a=1, b=2, c=3 etc.).

This I explained so as to make you understand the
importance of numbers to understand the Bible and
also creation.

The number 6 is not an evil number but helps us identify
who Satan was. It is a number which is really
associated with the Angels and has to do with the Morning Stars
of whom the Lord is the head.

The purpose of creation is to rebuild the (Temple) Body of
God the Son. Like we have a physical body, God the
Son has a body which constitutes of the Angels. It is
this reason that whenever an Angel appeared it is written in some
places the Lord appeared. The Lord is omnipresent so He is
already present everywhere.

When Satan fell He took a third of the Angels down with
him. We who will be redeemed will be like the Angels
and will become part of the Body of God the Son therefore
are called His bride (the purpose of marriage is when 2
become one).

The honeycomb's construction is made with keeping the sun
(symbolizing God the Son) into reference. The hive is
a result of tireless, selfless efforts of thousands of bees
with the prime purpose of blessing the next generation.
This is symbolic to the CROSS wherein the efforts of
the laborers in the vineyards goes on to build the next
generation stronger in the Kingdom of God, so that one day man
will be in the fullness of Christ becoming Sons of God,
thus bringing the prime purpose of creations to
fulfillment. It was due to 2 that mankind was driven out of
Heaven and it is by the CROSS that 2 (the last 2 witnesses)
will lead man back into Heaven by following Christ as
an example. These 2 are symbolized in the journey of
Israel by Joshua and Caleb (which in turn symbolizes the
journey of the people of God to the Promise Land - Heaven).

Honey is a product from flowers. Flowers represent
prophesy; the Word of God is the perfect prophesy and
perfect honey its understanding. Honey is one such product
which if pure never gets spoilt. There are incidents when
honey found in the tombs of the Egyptians was as
fresh as extracted on the first day. It is the
understanding of the Word of God which sets us free.
Understanding does not mean only knowledge. It is
only when this knowledge is put into practice we get the
full dimension of its purpose, process, practicality and
power of it. That's the reason Jesus said it is only
when we become Hid disciples (follow Him) will we
know the Truth and the understanding of the Truth will set us
free.

Milk is a product which cannot be kept for long and needs
to be taken fresh. Mother's milk is an all purpose
nourishment for its child. It meets both nutrient and medical
needs of a child. This represents the fresh daily nourishment
we receive from the Holy Spirit Who is both our Father
and Mother.

The word Hebrew Lebanon means 'whiteness' which symbolizes
righteousness. The word used for comparison is the
word 'like'. Our righteousness is like rags yet we are expected
to be people who pursue righteousness following the
example in Jesus Christ.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You are God the Son Who humbled Himself as Son
of God and came as son of man so that You can be a
savior to your bride. You became an example to follow and made
available all grace and power by your Spirit. Lord, You
love your bribe very much and have shed your Blood so
that we can be covered by your righteousness. Lord Jesus,
we pray for your bride and all those who are part of this
bride, help us understand the purpose of the CROSS
that we as one body, with one mind work towards the
one purpose which is You...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Song of Solomon 4:10-12
10 How fair is thy love, my sister, my spouse! how much
better is thy love than wine! and the smell of thine
ointments than all spices!
11 Thy lips, O my spouse, drop as the honeycomb: honey and
milk are under thy tongue; and the smell of thy
garments is like the smell of Lebanon.
12 A garden inclosed is my sister, my spouse; a spring
shut up, a fountain sealed.

Proverbs 18:21
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they
that love it shall eat the fruit [pollinating of
flowers gives fruit - meditating on prophesy] thereof.

Numbers 17:8
8 And it came to pass, that on the morrow Moses went into
the tabernacle of witness; and, behold, the rod of
Aaron for the house of Levi was budded, and brought forth buds,
and bloomed blossoms, and yielded almonds.

Leviticus 20:23-24
23 And ye shall not walk in the manners of the nation,
which I cast out before you: for they committed all
these things, and therefore I abhorred them.
24 But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land,
and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land
that floweth with milk and honey: I am the LORD your God,
which have separated you from other people.

Revelation 11:3-15
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they
shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore
days, clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks
standing before the God of the earth.
5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of
their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any
man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the
days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to
turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all
plagues, as often as they will.
7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the
beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall
make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill
them.
8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the
great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and
Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and
nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an
half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in
graves.
10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over
them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to
another; because these two prophets tormented them that
dwelt on the earth.
11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life
from God entered into them, and they stood upon their
feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
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.
13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the
tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake
were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were
affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe
cometh quickly.
15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great
voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world
are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and
he shall reign for ever and ever.

Zechariah 4:1-14
1 And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked
me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep,
2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have
looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a
bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and
seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top
thereof:
3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of
the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.
4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with
me, saying, What are these, my lord?
5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said
unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said,
No, my lord.
6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the
word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by
might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of
hosts.
7 Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou
shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the
headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto
it.
8 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this
house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt
know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.
10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they
shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand
of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the
LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two
olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick
and upon the left side thereof?
12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these
two olive branches which through the two golden pipes
empty the golden oil out of themselves?
13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what
these be? And I said, No, my lord.
14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that
stand by the Lord of the whole earth.

The pots in the Lord's House shall be like holy vessels

Zechariah 14:20 - In that day shall there be upon the
bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots
in the LORD'S house shall be like the bowls before the
altar.

In the Bible the Lord uses standard symbols throughout the
different books. Like explained in the book of Daniel
or Revelations a horn represented a ruler or a kingdom.
Similarly a horse symbolizes change or period, a bell symbolizes
warning of time (the Hebrew word translated as 'bell' comes
from the root word 'time' concerning trouble /
warning) and a pot made of earth symbolizes an earthly
person.

In the book of Zechariah the Lord is talking of a time
between the Gospel being preached to the entire world
and just before the end times. During this time the Church
will be in its peak glory and any person or country which
does not accept the teaching of peace (Jerusalem)
after receiving the Gospel will be punished by the Lord
severely. The fear of God will be among the people and all
will proclaim Holiness of the Lord. Scriptures says
every believer in the house of the Lord will be like a
holy vessel made of pure gold (gold symbolizing heavenly
righteousness) .

All children of God living a double life (worldly and godly
life together - Egypt) will be punished. The Feast of
the Tabernacle was celebrated at the end of the harvest.
It symbolizes the gathering of the people of God unto the Temple
of God, seven days symbolizes fullness in Christ. Pentecost
is the feast of harvest wherein all the harvest was
gathered unto barns irrespective of good or bad, wheat or
weed. The Feast of the Tabernacle was the time when the harvest
went from the threshing floor and through the winepress.
The Jews during this feast live in booths or tents
this symbolizes their readiness to travel. It actually
means the readiness for the second coming of our Lord Jesus
Christ. It is at that time when the whole harvest
will go through the threshing floor and the winepress
to be part of real Temple which is the Body of the Lord Jesus
Christ - God the Son.


[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus the Feast of Passover symbolizes the watering of
people those who are your children and hold the seed
of faith, die unto themselves and sprout new life in You
the Real Vine. The Feast of Pentecost is when your people
are harvested unto You irrespective of fruit bearing
or non fruit bearing. The Feast of Tabernacle is the time
when the fruit bearing are segregated from the non fruit
bearing. Those which are non fruit bearing will be
burnt and those which are fruit bearing will be
gathered unto You. Lord, we pray that realized the importance of
growing the Fruit(s) of the Holy Spirit so that we are
gathered unto You to be a part of the glorious You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.


[Reference Scriptures]
Zechariah 14:17-21
17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of
all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the
King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come
not, that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith
the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep
the feast of tabernacles.
19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the
punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast
of tabernacles.
20 In that day shall there be upon the bells of the
horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD'S
house shall be like the bowls before the altar.
21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be
holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that
sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein:
and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite
in the house of the LORD of hosts.

Exodus 25:28-30
28 "And you shall make the poles of acacia wood, and
overlay them with gold, that the table may be carried with
them.
29 "You shall make its dishes, its pans, its
pitchers, and its bowls for pouring. You shall make them of
pure gold.
30 "And you shall set the showbread on the table
before Me always.

Deuteronomy 16:13-15
13 "You shall observe the Feast of Tabernacles seven
days, when you have gathered from your threshing floor and
from your winepress.
14 "And you shall rejoice in your feast, you and
your son and your daughter, your male servant and your
female servant and the Levite, the stranger and the
fatherless and the widow, who are within your gates.
15 "Seven days you shall keep a sacred feast to the
LORD your God in the place which the LORD chooses, because
the LORD your God will bless you in all your produce and in
all the work of your hands, so that you surely
rejoice.

Matthew 22:1-14
1 And Jesus answered and spoke to them again by
parables and said:
2 "The kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who
arranged a marriage for his son,
3 "and sent out his servants to call those who were
invited to the wedding; and they were not willing to come.
4 "Again, he sent out other servants, saying, 'Tell
those who are invited, "See, I have prepared my dinner; my
oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and all things are ready. Come
to the wedding."'
5 "But they made light of it and went their ways,
one to his own farm, another to his business.
6 "And the rest seized his servants, treated them
spitefully, and killed them.
7 "But when the king heard about it, he was furious.
And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and
burned up their city.
8 "Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding
is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy.
9 'Therefore go into the highways, and as many as
you find, invite to the wedding.'
10 "So those servants went out into the highways and
gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good.
And the wedding hall was filled with guests.
11 "But when the king came in to see the guests, he
saw a man there who did not have on a wedding garment.
12 "So he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in
here without a wedding garment?' And he was speechless.
13 "Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him
hand and foot, take him away, and cast him into outer
darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
14 "For many are called, but few are chosen."
