He that has is given more; he that has not from him what
he has is taken!

Mark 4:25 - For he that has, to him shall be given: and
he that has not, from him shall be taken even that which
he has.

This scripture is quiet surprising and to normal man it
would seem illogical.

A person who has is given more and a person who does not
have from him what he has is taken. If he has not
then what is taken? If he has then why he has not?

It is only when we get into the grammar of this sentence
would one understand.

There are 3 'has' and what we need to study is the
grammatical property - TVM (Tense, Voice, Mood) of
these words.

Mark 4:25 - For he that has, to him shall be given: and he
that has not, from him shall be taken even that which
he has.

The TVM of first has (to whom is given) is Present, Active,
The TVM of second has (who has not) is Present, Active,
The TVM of third has (which is taken from the 2nd has) is
Present, Active, Indicative

In the TVM we see that the difference is in the Mood.

Definitions of the Mood:-

Mood - Subjunctive
The subjunctive mood is the mood of possibility and
potentiality. The action described may or may not occur,
depending upon circumstances. Conditional sentences of
the third class ("ean" + the subjunctive) are all of this
type, as well as many commands following
conditional purpose clauses, such as those beginning with

Mood - Indicative
The indicative mood is a simple statement of fact. If an
action really occurs or has occurred or will occur, it will be
rendered in the indicative mood.

This thing that the person has which we are talking of is
the knowledge and understanding or revelation of the
Kingdom of God. This scripture is continual to the previous
statement which Jesus made warning as what one receive through
one's ears. A person who receives the Knowledge of the
Kingdom of Heaven, more will be given unto him.

So what we see is that the first person does not know for
sure if he has or not or the quantity or what he has
but yet he tries to use whatever he has, such a person the
Lord says is given more.

The second person thinks he does not have or have
sufficient so he does not use it and such a person
the Lord says would be put into more confusion for that
which he has would be taken away.

God has given each and every one who He has called His
children the required understanding to know Him and
to grow in that understanding. It is only when we use what we
received, then only would we be given more and more. Thus
just hearing the Word of God and not using it will
not help you but may land you in more confusion.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You speak to your people through your Word and
through your people. As your Spirit reveals the Word
unto us help us Lord to use It in so that we receive more
of your Kingdom. Give us more and more boldness to stand on
your Word and wisdom to use It effectively. ..

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Mark 4:24
24 And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear:
with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and
unto you that hear [listen] shall more be given.

Matthew 25:14-30
14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling
into a far country, who called his own servants, and
delivered unto them his goods.
15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another
two, and to another one; to every man according to his several
ability; and straightway took his journey.
16 Then he that had received the five talents went
and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.
17 And likewise he that had received two, he also
gained other two.
18 But he that had received one went and digged in
the earth, and hid his lord's money.
19 After a long time the lord of those servants
cometh, and reckoneth with them.
20 And so he that had received five talents came and
brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst
unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them
five talents more.
21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and
faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I
will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the
joy of thy lord.
22 He also that had received two talents came and
said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I
have gained two other talents beside them.
23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and
faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I
will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the
joy of thy lord.
24 Then he which had received the one talent came
and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man,
reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou
hast not strawed:
25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in
the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.
26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked
and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I
sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:
27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to
the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received
mine own with usury.
28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it
unto him which hath ten talents.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and
he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be
taken away even that which he hath.
30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer
darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Value the real diamonds more than your life

Daniel 10:18, 19 - Then there came again and touched me
one like the appearance of a man, and he strengthened me,
And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto
thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had
spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord
speak; for thou hast strengthened me.

Daniel was meditating on certain scriptures of Jeremiah and
the Lord revealed their understanding to him in
dreams. Daniel was shown things concerning the last days
and was trembling with fright. It was at this time the Lord
appeared to him as an Angel in a vision and touched
him and strengthened him giving him the courage to boldly
speak what he was shown.

The things that I speak today a few years back I would have
never dreamed that I would have courage to speak
them. It all started with one situation in my life which
was my turning point.

About 4-5 years back all was good since (more than 1 year)
I came into the Lord and for a long time the Lord was
revealing many a scriptures to me in dreams like He did to
Daniel as I was writing for the website wherein I teach the
Word (in SavedByFaith. info I give only the Gospel -
an intro to the Word rarely touching the depth of the
Word). All these revelations were the precious diamonds I
collected (they were shown to me in the form of tears
having not one but three sources / tips on the top).

I have a brother in law who also does the Lord's work and I
used to give high respect to everything he spoke, (he
had/has a very gentle approach) he was quiet knowledgeable
of the Bible for he had gone to be a priest and left at the
last moment for his faith was broken with what they
taught in the seminary (in theology and behavior).

One night I received a dream in which the Lord warned me
not to listen to him for if I did I would lose all
those precious diamonds I held, this was when I was
overnight at his place. In the morning itself we were
talking over a cup of tea and discussion something
related to the Word and I did not accept it but confronted
him. From that moment things changed for me, people and
their attitude towards me changed, oppositions came
from all directions. The worst was from my own mother who is
a very important person in my life and who also is strongly
rooted in the Catholic belief (like my
brother-in-law) . My family and my own life were on the
verge of destruction but I valued those diamonds more than
my life and faced each and every thing that was
thrown at me. Every day was a great testimony and I passed
every storm very boldly.

When the Truth is in us and when we have the knowledge of
who we are in the Lord, we will have courage to speak
and stand against situations like we would have never

I am nobody in this world and yet I hold the boldness to
speak against an institution which literally runs a
part of this world. I only know one thing when I speak in
anointing, things happen and the Lord manifests His power.
He has never disappointed me and I know He will never
in the future as far as I am with Him.

The most difficult, challenging moments in my life were
when I was told to confront people who were spiritual
leaders, priests or anointed people well known among
Christians. I have even been called mad even on my
face by a few of them but over time God has shaken quite a
many of them and have bought them out of their corruption.

When you are rooted in the Truth it becomes very easy to do
things the world would consider insane. Having quite
a clear view of the timeline of the events ahead as given in
scriptures it gives great courage and direction on what to
say and when.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are Almighty and You alone are God. You created
everything and all things are by You. Without You
nothing can exist and nothing in all Heaven even those
hidden in the dark has power against You. Nothing is hidden
from You and You can see things which no one has yet
seen. You are beyond words and no language can describe
You. Only a circumcised heart can come before You and experience
your glory. Lord, give us the courage to hold on to the
knowledge of the Truth, of Who You are who we are in

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through
and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart
be also.

44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto
treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he
hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he

we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest

manifest in our mortal flesh.

Philippians 1:16-21

sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:
17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for
the defence of the gospel.
18 What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in
pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do
rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.
19 For I know that this shall turn to my salvation
through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus
20 According to my earnest expectation and my hope,
that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all
boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified
in my body, whether it be by life, or by death.
21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Is Peter the Rock which the Church is built on?

Matthew 16:16-19
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the
Christ, the Son of the living God.
17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art
thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not
revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in
18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and
upon this rock I will build my church; and the
gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of
heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be
bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose
on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

First thing one needs to get in one's mind is Simon Barjona
[means son of Jona] was not named Peter by Jesus but even
before Jesus met him people used to call him Peter. It was
his nick name (surname as written in Mark).

The name Peter is actually a bad name or a mocking name for
it is another name for Satan. The word Peter means
pebble and the Hebrew equivalent of it is Tyre / Tyrus names
given to Satan the Dragon (king) (one who is bonded
in Hell and will be released in the last days and who
has powers) and Satan the Beast (prince) (one who is with
us and does not have powers over people of God but only
with the people of this world) in Ezekiel.

There is no doubt that Simon was selected to lead the
Apostles but he was neither the Rock nor the head (Pope)
of the Church. He was the chief coordinator since he was an
Apostle and chosen by Jesus to lead the other Apostles. His
selection was confirmed in the tomb when he picked
the gown of Jesus which was lying on the floor.

The Greek word translated as Peter is 'Petros' while the
word used for Rock is 'Petra'.

When I went to the session of the Catholic evangelist Steve
Ray, he tried to cover up this fact by taking the
grammatical gender of the words. He said since the word
Petra was feminine therefore (he said this while
mocking with actions like that of a pansy) it was not
appropriate for Peter and thus Jesus used the name Peter.

He did not know that he was mocking the Holy Spirit for the
word Petra is used to the Holy Spirit and the Hebrew
word 'Ruwach' for Spirit also is feminine. It does not mean
the Spirit of God is feminine but shows the role the Holy
Spirit plays in the salvation of mankind like that of
a Mother. This is the reason God the Son called Him His Mother
in the Songs of Solomon. It is the Holy Spirit Who is the
Rock on which the Church is build. It is He who
nurtures the Church like a mother does to its child.

Satan from the start does not want man to have a
relationship with the Holy Spirit and therefore has always
been taking the female form of different goddesses like
Ashtoreth, Ishtar, Diana, Moon goddess, Queen of
Heaven and now as Mother Mary, Fatima, Lady of Lourdes,
Lady of Success, Mother of God, Perpetual Succor, Black Mary,
Lady of Dollar, Lady of Guadalupe, Lady of Mount
Carmel, Ever Virgin, Advocate of Eve, Immaculate, Star of the
Sea, Madonna etc...

Jesus therefore said unless we are baptized (total
surrender) to the Father and then the Son we will not know
or have relationship with the Spirit of God. Most people
get lost on the second stage of total surrender to
Jesus Christ. They do not make Him their true Lord,
King, Corner Stone, Master and Brother.

It was great when Simon who was called a Devil by the
people was selected to be a very important person in the
Church of God.

Another fact about the key of Heaven been given to Simon -
the word Jesus used for 'thee' or 'you' is one with is
used in plural tense, therefore Jesus gave the Key to all His
disciples and today when we know Who Jesus us from the
testimonies and revelations of others or from the
Holy Spirit, we too receive the Key to Heaven.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You came as man to be the Corner Stone of the
Temple. As Christ You are the Head of this Church and
as God you are the cause of this Church. Holy Spirit it is by You
that the Church is founded on the Truth. You are the Father
and Mother of this Church. Holy Spirit, by the grace
we receive in Jesus Christ, help us open our eyes and
know You and have a relationship with You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 4:18
18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two
brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting
a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

Mark 3:16
16 And Simon he surnamed Peter;

Luke 5:1-11
1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed
upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of
2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the
fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing
their nets.
3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's,
and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the
land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of
the ship.
4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon,
Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for
a draught.
5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have
toiled all the night, and have taken nothing:
nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great
multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the
other ship, that they should come and help them. And they
came, and filled both the ships, so that they began
to sink.
8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees,
saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at
the draught of the fishes which they had taken:
10 And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee,
which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto
Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch

forsook all, and followed him.

Challenging time require strong steps

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.

Firstly people do not know me and one person I met who
receives my message thought there was a whole team or
ministry which sends the daily messages. I am an ordinary
person like anyone else and may be sitting beside you in a
train or bus, or walking down the street with you and
you will not know me.

My benefit is that you become strong in the Lord and one
day lead others into His Kingdom.

I have been sending daily mails since nearly 3 years and
what I am sending today was known to me even at that
time. If I wanted I could have sent these mails even at that
time, but like I keep saying my words and my wisdom may
please people but doing according to God instruction
can only bring change.

God's time works according to the heart of a person and He
knows whose heart will change or not. His word
reaches the heart of those who desire Him at the right time
and those who are stiff neck or stubborn in heart He
hardens them further and sets them to their

In India just 2 days back we had the Annual Budget and
there were not many changes in the budget. People were
neither very happy nor disappointed. Common man was pleased
looking at it, but those who really know economics were
disappointed. They did not see any reforms pushing
ahead. They know there is going to be hard times ahead and
for the country to be strong then, now is the right time to
take strong steps even if it hurts us somewhat.

When they put this question to the Finance Minister, he
simple told them since his government did not enjoy
total majority in the Parliament and depended on alliance
his hands were tied.

God is not in a minority nor is His Hands tied. He knows
the times ahead are going to be difficult and
therefore He is asking of us to make strong changes in our
spiritual life so that we will sail smoothly during those times.

God's love and my love for you has not changed but grown
and out of true concern, the things that were hidden
are exposed at the right time so that they do not lead to
your destruction.

In today's message Jesus rebuked the wind and we see it
obeyed and was silenced.

In that part of the sea it was an odd wind, Jesus was
asleep in one boat and there were other boats along.
The waves were getting bigger and the water had filled the
boat. Had they not woken up Jesus, by normal understanding
the boats could have capsized. Therefore Jesus first
took the step of rebuking the wind and then He asked them
if they did not have faith.

What faith did Jesus talk of them and is asking of us

Faith to know that the Lord is there with us therefore
nothing will harm us. Faith that in the right time
God will take action against the powers which come against us
and show He is God and we are His loved ones.

I have seen many people know the Truth but do not want to
come out from their pagan way of life due to social
fears and real stupid reasons.

Some of them are like, what will happen to their body when
they die, will people bury them, if so where? When
they have children where will they baptize them? How do
they get married and where? Who will issue birth
certificates? What will they do on Sundays? Will they
receive communion or just bread?

Like the priest rightly asked the couple to give him a
letter stating they would not require any service
from the RC church. What they were getting was nothing to
do with God but municipal services with a religious face.

For municipal services the government is there, so let us
not mix spiritual things with municipal things.

It is all these rituals and traditions which have been like
iron chains around the legs of people. God has opened
the prison door and given us the power to break all kind
of chains which hold us down. Have faith and walk through the
prison door and the chains will break by themselves.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, Your people are far from You and cannot see You. They
trust man more than they trust You. They call
themselves by your Name but they do not truly know your Name
since they do not know You. Lord, reveal to this world that
You alone are God and no powers can stand before You.
All knees will bow and all tongues will confess You are
God. Lord, the chains of bondage are very great for some of our
brothers and sisters. We ask you to shower abundant grace
on them and may your favor be on them...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Mark 4:35-40
35 And the same day, when the even was come, he
saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they
took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with
him other little ships.
37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the
waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep
on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master,
carest thou not that we perish?
39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto
the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was
a great calm.
40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how
is it that ye have no faith?

Come out your graven images cannot save you

Isaiah 45:19,20 - I have not spoken in secret, in a dark
place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob,
Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I
declare things that are right. Assemble
yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of
the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood
of their graven image, and pray unto a god that
cannot save.

Some of the Catholics who received my yesterdays and
previous messages on the same topic got offended.
They expect me to send only nice messages which do not bring
change in a person. They wanted me to be a doctor who gives
a chocolate and not medicine to a patient who has
deep infection just to keep the patient happy. That
infection will one day spread and kill that person.

The Lord too did not hide anything right from the start. He
knew of the deceit even before He created this world,
but He also knew The Way would save His people. He states
in His message for us today to those who are willing to listen,
He did not create you and me in vanity to perish.

A brother responded to my mail asking do not the Catholics
and Christians worship the same God.

Even though the Catholics worship the same God yet they
also worship other gods like the Israelites did
during the time of Jezebel (King Ahab). The Catholic Church is
making them do all the things which God said not to. This
will get them to be put along with the goats on the
Judgment Day to suffer and perish even worse than what
non-believers would, just what Satan plans for them.

Today the Lord is calling all among them to put away your
graven images and worship the Lord in Spirit and
Truth. It is only by His Word and His Spirit that we can
know Him and come to Him so as to receive eternal life.

Whatever I spoke in my mails was told to the people of God
even by the early Men of God in the Old Testament and
also in the New Testament by Jesus Christ, by the Apostles
and by other Men of God.

It is very simple - do you want God or your graven images?
Your graven images do not exist in truth and will not
save you. Satan has deceived you in thinking they exist.

Simeon while holding 8 day old baby Jesus in his arms spoke
about Jesus' mission and at the same time also spoke
to Mary about how after her death her name would be misused
to expose the hearts of many.

Let us not harden our hearts with these graven images and
let us heed to the warning which the Lord has been
giving us since ancient and let us turn back to Him.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, Your Word is Light unto our path and lamp unto our
feet. Lord, without your Word we would be in darkness
and prey to the deceiver who is out to destroy us by bring
us into your wrath. Lord, we pray that the hearts of those
who are deceived by the evil one would not harden and
their eyes are opened to see You and know You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Isaiah 45:21-22
21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take
counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time?
who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and
there is no God else beside me; a just God and a
Saviour; there is none beside me.
22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of
the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

Luke 2:34-35
34 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his
mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising
again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be
spoken against;
35 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul
also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.

Matthew 25:29-46
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and
he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be
taken away even that which he hath.
30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer
darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and
all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the
throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and
he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd
divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but
the goats on the left.
34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right
hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom
prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was
thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took
me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye
visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying,
Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and
gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or
naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came
unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them,
Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of
the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto
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
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.

(The scripture does not talk only of physical shelter,
clothing, food and water but their spiritual
symbolization also, for Jesus send us to give eyes to the
spiritually blind, set the spiritual captives free, the
spiritually naked to be clothed in the righteousness
of Jesus etc..) --

Multitude of kings and idols of Satan

Amos 5:25,26 - Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and
offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of
Israel? But ye have borne the tabernacle [multitude] of
your Moloch [kings] and Chiun [pillar symbolizing
promises] your images [idols], the star of your god,
which ye made to yourselves.

A family close to me who were previously in the Catholic
Church had come out of that Church and started
attending service at a Believer Church. The wife is well
rooted in the Word (having a calling of a Teacher) used to
be active in that Church (Zonal Leader) along with
her husband who was previously a Hindu and started
believing in Jesus Christ and today is very strong rooted
in the Lord changing the lives of many around him
also having a calling in his life.

When they stopped attending the Catholic Masses and
attending their Rosaries and other such activities
and kept talking about the Bible, people around them started
getting suspicious. Someone among them tracked them to a
New Life (Pentecostal) Church and spoke to their
Parish Priest. The Priest called them to confront them.
They did call me before meeting the Priest and I encouraged
them to be bold and speak the Truth without fear and
gave them tips on how Jesus confronted the Pharisees
and Sadducees.

The Priest was new in that Parish and not knowing all the
work this couple had done in that Church before just
bluntly questioned them about leaving this Church which
they said yes. He then asked them to give them a letter
stating that they have left this Church and would not
need any service from it. He indirectly intimated them
about influencing the other Catholics around them.

When people from this Church came to know about me leaving
this Church the Zonal leader alone with someone came
to confront me also. Like Jesus tackled the questions of
the Pharisees and Sadducees I confronted them with their
traditions. I took one topic about idols and what the
Bible says about it. By God's grace I got them questioning
this area and they committed to me to bring the Priest who
they feel is well knowledgeable in the Bible to meet
me so that they would know what is right or wrong. I
am eagerly waiting for that Priest to come.

Even after seeing scriptures from the Bible most Catholics
like people from their elder sister Church - the
Jewish Church will refuse to believe it. The Old Testament
is full of prophesies of the Savior and were all fulfilled
in Jesus Christ but they will refuse to accept it,
all because of their kings and idols. They have made their
Rabbis as kings like the Catholics have made the Priests. Even
God is over ruled on the word of their Priest. These
2 sister Churches with their kings and idols (what
the Jews do with David and his star - that is the reason
God hide the body of Moses and also the Ark of Covenant -
which was last historically recorded as lost in the
desert when transported in a caravan, none of the caravan
were found alive).

They live on not the Promises of God but on the (false)
promises of their kings and their idols. Someday I
like to take each of the false promises of their goddess
Ashtoreth who comes as Mother Mary, Fatima etc. and compare
them with the Word. They also have another idol
Sister Faustina who also is one of their gods. What she
says in the name of Jesus over rules what Jesus said in the
Bible i.e. the Divine Mercy prayer (promise of
salvation on reciting it at 3pm) is also a deceit to
spiritually kill the children of God. I remember a brother (when
I too was in this Church and believed all this
rubbish) who had great faith in the Divine Mercy
prayer (now he too is a Believer) went for a deliverance
case and used this prayer; the person (a girl) under the
influence of the evil spirit beat him and another
brother so badly that they will never forget it. The room
was locked and they were running in circles and the girl
chasing them with whatever she would get in her

It was only when I understood the meaning of the water
gushing out of the side of Jesus with the books of
Moses that I caught the deceit of the Devine Mercy and knew
it was not from the Lord.

The Divine Mercy photographs may have the image of Jesus
but the message they give is not from the Lord but
from the Devil. Salvation does not come from reciting or
chanting words but from believing in Jesus Christ and
walking in the Word of God (being led by the Spirit
of God).

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, the people wanted a human King even when You were
with them and even manifested your glory around them.
You came a man and king for there was none worthy to lead
your people. Even then they forsake You and still make man
as their kings. Without You leading them they fallen
prey to the deceit of Satan and have idols as their
gods and You as one among them. Like You brought down the
head of the false god in the Sanctuary bring down the heads
of these gods and kings with your Sword - Your

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this

Whom say ye that I am?

Matthew 16:15 - He saith unto them, But whom say ye that
I am?

This is one question when asked every Christian will jump
putting they hand up to answer but yet there will be
no Christian who will be able to give the full answer. Even
after having a personal disclosure of Revelations from the
Lord yet today I know that there is a lot more to
know about Jesus and Who He is. Some of the things which
I have been revealed of Him is beyond comprehension and shows how
great He is and is His sacrifice, His love. One of these I
tried to share with a brother who was quiet Word
rooted yet was not able to receive so stumbled at it.

God reveals Himself to us as we prepare our hearts to
receive Him. What is interesting is where Jesus asked
this question?

The scriptures states in was on the coasts of Caesarea
Philippi, this place was famous for a temple
dedicated to the Greek god Pan. Herod had build a great marble
temple for this god even though he had also build the
second temple for the Jews (which was again brought
down in 70AD) in which the man who's hand was crushed
(stone mason's hand / withered hand Matt 12:10) by the
Jewish High Priest for working on a Sabbath day on
the temple and at who's wall the Jews today worship.

In this place was a huge (still is) stone grotto from
within which a giant spring originated. This spring
previously indirectly but now directly feeds the Jordan
River. This grotto was previously dedicated to Baal-Hermon
but later during the Greek rule became a place
dedicated to Pan. Grottos right from the beginning (from
Genesis) were associated with Satan and his idols which were
worshipped as gods by the heathens. Even though worldly the
gods were changed with regards to this place but
spiritually no change happened for both gods were
associated with the underground and are the same. Next to
the huge cave in the rock were niches where idols
were placed just like the Catholic Church does specifically
with their Mother Mary (goddess Ashtoreth) and their
saints. In this cave human sacrifices were offered
and still today spiritually people are killed by grottos
which are replica of this temple of Pan having goddess
Ashtoreth in them.

Jesus travelled a long way to stand before this rock temple
so as to ask this question. You can now visualize
Jesus standing before this huge rock temple and asking this
question 'who do you say that I am?'

Now you have a choice to look at this rock temple (grotto)
in the background or look at Jesus Christ who is the
Head of the true Temple, of whom the Church is part of and
in whom was the Spirit of God in fullness - the Spirit Who
is the Rock on which the Church is build. Peter did
not look at the rock temple but at Jesus and so the Spirit
of God revealed to him a property of Who Jesus was.

But later Peter took pride in been the one through whom the
revelation came and thus became prey to Satan to deny
the dead and resurrection of Jesus. Peter's rebuking did
not stop there but went further for he went through a
spiritual rollercoaster ride with again a high for
being one of the only three to be chosen to witness the
Transfiguration of Jesus. This led to another rebuke when he
spoke before hand about Jesus paying temple tax so
Jesus sent him to fetch a fish from the sea from
which mouth he found a gold coin to be paid as tax. History
records this event in detail and it will just amaze you at
what humiliation Peter went through to get that gold
coin and how he again became a hero among the disciples.

It is only proper preparation of our hearts and right focus
of our eyes that we will be revealed Who Jesus is.
And as we come to know more of Him it shakes our lose
foundations and high places and bring them to level with
His Will - His Word.

Even today there is lot, lot more to know about Jesus and
as we come to know more of Him we will become
stronger inside and have more authority in His Name.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are God and man cannot ever comprehend to know
You. You desire that your children know You so You
came as man Jesus in Whom your image existed. When man Adam
sinned this image died in us and as we come to know You
this image is born again in us. Lord, by your Spirit
of Truth Whom we received through Jesus Christ prepare our
hearts and train our eyes to be focused on You and so to know
You. It is only by the knowledge of You that we have
authority in your Name...

This prayer we make in your Mighty Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 16:13-15
13 When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea
Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I
the Son of man am?
14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the
Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the
15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?

Matthew 12:10-14
10 And, behold, there was a man which had his hand
withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on
the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.
11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be
among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit
on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it
12 How much then is a man better than a sheep?
Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine
hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like
as the other.
14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council
against him, how they might destroy him.

Matthew 16:21-23
21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his
disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many
things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be
killed, and be raised again the third day.
22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him,
saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee
behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest
not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

Matthew 17:1-6
1 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and
John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain
2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did
shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
3 And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and
Elias talking with him.
4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it
is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here
three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one
for Elias.
5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud
overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which
said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased;
hear ye him.
6 And when the disciples heard it, they fell on
their face, and were sore afraid.

Matthew 17:24-27
24 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that
received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your
master pay tribute?
25 He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the
house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of
whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of
their own children, or of strangers?
26 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith
unto him, Then are the children free.
27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go
thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that
first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou
shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto
them for me and thee.

I will utterly consume everything

Zephaniah 1:2-6
2 "I will utterly consume everything from the
face of the land," Says the LORD;
3 "I will consume man and beast; I will consume
the birds of the heavens, The fish of the sea, And the
stumbling blocks along with the wicked. I will cut off
man from the face of the land," Says the LORD.
4 "I will stretch out My hand against Judah, And
against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem. I will cut off
every trace of Baal from this place, The names of the
idolatrous priests with the pagan priests-
5 Those who worship the host of heaven on the
housetops; Those who worship and swear oaths by the LORD, But
who also swear by Milcom;
6 Those who have turned back from following the
LORD, And have not sought the LORD, nor inquired of Him."

Before I get to today's message one of the most challenging
area of Bible study is how to understand prophesies
and how to apply them. Prophesies are basically things that
the Lord will do or will allow to be done, so these are
grammatically verbs thus can be understood by the
grammar of the 3 languages in which the Bible is written
that is Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek.

Let me go in the reverse order the Greek language grammar
has what is known as TVM - Tone, Voice and Mood. When
the Lord taught me this, He showed them to me as
instructions for the body, soul (inner man) and spirit
respectively. So if one takes any scripture and goes
into the grammar and applies this rule to it one would
easily write a book like Paul just on one scripture.

The Hebrew and Aramaic language on the other hand has only
two properties and thus are instructions either to
body and soul or soul and spirit. The New Testament is
written in Greek because the Word (promise) was made flesh
and whole instructions were completed (3).

It is because of this reason most prophesies are just not
related to a specific event but more than one event.
Like the fall of Jerusalem as warned by Jesus in Matthew
24 was prophesied by Jeremiah and explained by Daniel,
was not only connected to the physical Jerusalem in 70AD
but is also connected to the false Church in the last
days (there are 2 Hebrew Jerusalem words one refers to the
false church and the other the true church).

Therefore all scriptures have a message and even though the
message is one, it speaks to each heart given us
answers according to our hearts.

In today's message the Lord Prophesizes that He would
consume many earthly things even though these will be
physically manifested the greater things is the spiritual
factor of what each earthly thing means or represents.

So what we will see is a revival of the Church for all
things that not of spiritual foundation and not of
the Lord will be shaken and bought down and people who say they
speak for the Lord when in reality they have not sought the
Lord will be exposed and bought down.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, there are many shepherds who walk in the flesh more
than in the Spirit. They do not lead your sheep to
green pastures but to poison junkyards. Lord, we thank You
for the change You are bringing in the Church and among
your people. Let your glory be seen among your people
and let them know that You indeed are God and You alone
are God and You are not asleep but know all things even those
which are hidden...

We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 24:14-25
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached
in the whole world for a testimony unto all the nations;
and then shall the end come.
15 When therefore ye see the abomination of
desolation, which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet,
standing in the holy place (let him that readeth
16 then let them that are in Judaea flee unto the
17 let him that is on the housetop not go down to
take out things that are in his house:
18 and let him that is in the field not return back
to take his cloak.
19 But woe unto them that are with child and to them
that give suck in those days!
20 And pray ye that your flight be not in the
winter, neither on a sabbath:
21 for then shall be great tribulation, such as hath
not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor
ever shall be.
22 And except those days had been shortened, no
flesh would have been saved: but for the elect's sake those days
shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is
the Christ, or, Here; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false
prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so as to
lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
25 Behold, I have told you beforehand.

Micah 1:2-9
2 Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, and all
that therein is: and let the Lord GOD be witness against you,
the Lord from his holy temple.
3 For, behold, the LORD cometh forth out of his
place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places of the
4 And the mountains shall be molten under him, and
the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, and as the
waters that are poured down a steep place.
5 For the transgression of Jacob is all this, and
for the sins of the house of Israel. What is the transgression
of Jacob? is it not Samaria? and what are the high places
of Judah? are they not Jerusalem?
6 Therefore I will make Samaria as an heap of the
field, and as plantings of a vineyard: and I will pour down
the stones thereof into the valley, and I will discover the
foundations thereof.
7 And all the graven images thereof shall be beaten
to pieces, and all the hires thereof shall be burned with
the fire, and all the idols thereof will I lay desolate:
for she gathered it of the hire of an harlot, and
they shall return to the hire of an harlot.
8 Therefore I will wail and howl, I will go stripped
and naked: I will make a wailing like the dragons, and
mourning as the owls.
9 For her wound is incurable; for it is come unto
Judah; he is come unto the gate of my people, even to
Jerusalem. --

Matthew the Levi and the Gospel of Matthew

In the Gospels there was one of the 12 disciples - the 12
Apostles whose name was Matthew and in the gospels of
Mark and Luke also named as Levi. Matthew means 'gift of
Jehovah' and he was a tax collector by profession, in Mark
and Luke he is referred as Levi which means 'joined'
name of one of the tribes of Israel. Matthew the Apostle
was the son of Alphaeus. The last record of him is in Acts
when all gathered together in the upper room he too
was present.

The Gospel of Matthew is considered to be written by him
but there has been questions raised by some Biblical
scholars since ages about this, because the records of the
Gospels of Matthew and Mark are dependent on each
other and the Gospel of Matthew fails as to be records
of a person who was witness to the events.

When the Lord was teaching me He pointed me to one
particular record of a man who dwell among the tombs
with a legion of spirits and was delivered by Jesus; in the
Gospel of Matthew it has been wrongly recorded as 2
persons. Had this Gospel been written by Matthew the
Apostle it would not have had this error. When I sat with
the Lord and questioned why an open, blunt error like this
exists in the Bible and then the Lord opened my mind
and taught me the seven fold callings in the Body of
Christ. Had it not been for this intentional error it would have
been difficult to explain the 7 callings, for the Church
believes in a fivefold calling.

By the style of the writing and the text it is not a
writing of an Apostle but that of a Teacher. It was by
this error I was revealed the two types among the calling of a
Teacher, one as a Historical Teacher and the other as a
Spiritual Teacher, one proves the scriptures and the
other reveals the scriptures. Matthew who wrote the Gospel
was a Historical Teacher he went through records and spoke
to witnesses to document the Gospel. The two types of
Teacher callings are also confirmed in the dress of
the High Priest in the books of Moses and also in the image of
God in which man is made.

The dating of this Gospel was somewhere between 30 AD and
70 AD going by the fact the fall of Jerusalem is not
mentioned in the Gospel. There are historic records of this
Matthew being a Gentile-Jew from Antioch while Matthew the
Apostle was a Levi.

As to the depth the Lord has taken me in the scriptures
this scripture of the man being delivered from a
legion of spirits and another scripture about 12/24 elders
in Heaven are which I have found open errors put with
purpose to reveal the hidden understanding of the
Lord’s Kingdom. Even though these exist yet the Word
of God is without error and that a person who understands
the books and the Image of Christ in us will
understand. Therefore no human mind can comprehend the
depth and dimension in which this Holy Book is written.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, we thank You for your Word which is instructions to
our salvation, to be back together with You and to be
glorified in You. Lord, your wisdom is beyond the
comprehension of man and his imagination. Your Kingdom is
something no man would ever understand had it not
been for your Word, manifestation of the Word and your
Spirit. Holy Spirit, we pray You open the minds of your
people and reveal to them how wonderful your Word and
your Kingdom is...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

The House of Ashtaroth

1 Samuel 31:10 - And they put his armor in the house of
the Ashtaroth; and they fastened his body to the wall of

Ashtaroth was the center of the temple of goddess
Ashtoreth. Ashtoreth was a goddess worshiped by the
Philistines, the Zidonians and Phenicians. This same goddess
was later worshiped even by the Israelites and was called
by them as the Queen of Heaven.

Today this same goddess is still worshiped by Christians
especially the Catholics and she has come in the
deceptive form saying she is the mother of Jesus and will lead
us to Jesus. But when you scrutinize her words with the
Bible one would find she speaks against what Jesus
preached and which the Lord said through His Prophets.
There is a very nice documentary titled 'Message from
Heaven' which deals with each official Catholic
Church accepted statements of this goddess in the forms as
Fatima, Mother Mary, Queen of Heaven, Perpetual Succour

Ashtaroth is not limited to the Catholics only but even the
Believer Churches have not totally come out from the
deceit of this image which the beast (Prince of Tyrus) has
put into the lives of Christians because he desires people to
worship him as god. Many Christian celebrations have been
infected or distorted by this spirit since the coming
of the Catholic Church and still continues. For example
Resurrection Sunday was changed into Easter Sunday after
this goddess Ashtar / Ashtoreth for even the Romans
used to worship this goddess on the same day. So thus the
real message of resurrection of Jesus got replaced with
cross buns, eggs and bunnies etc. which were
associated with this goddess.

It is written in the Bible in the last days when the
Catholic Church starts to repent from its ways, just
then the chief Anti-Christ will come and killing the last
Pope will become Pope. The Anti-Christ with his knowledge
of dark powers will make this image to manifest in
the flesh and those who do not worship it will be put to

Previously I too was in the trap of this goddess when I was
in the Catholic Church but when the Lord revealed to
me the deceit and the depth of its infection throughout
that Church, I came out of it.

Talk to a Catholic about the Bible and the first question
they ask 'do you believe in Mother Mary?' They call
themselves her children not knowing that she / it is
against Jesus and that they are calling themselves children
of Satan the beast.

It is time to come out of this deceit and throw images and
photos of this goddess where it belongs - the
dustbin. When I was a Catholic I would not even dream of doing
such a thing and would find it blasphemy or insult to a
mother son relation. But when I came into the
knowledge of the enemy in disguise there does not come even
a thought across my mind while doing this.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, we prayer for your sheep who are under the mark of
the beast, under the deceit of beast. Lord, let them
know that You alone are El-Shaddai our spiritual Father and
Mother, our everything. We pray the yoke be broken and their
hearts not hardened and they come into your Light...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

17 Seest thou not what they do in the cities of
Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem?

Worst than Sodom and Gomorrah

Matthew 10:14-15
14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear
your words, as ye go forth out of that house or that city, shake
off the dust of your feet.
15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more
tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of
judgment, than for that city.

Most people who visit the land of Israel are surely to go
and take a dip in the Dead Sea. This lake is very
famous for its high density such that people float on it.
It is also very famous for having lots of minerals which
people claim to be good for the skin.

How did this happen for lakes are normally made of fresh

Archeologists have found out that the cities of Sodom and
Gomorrah were on the banks of this lake. The cities
were destroyed by a very sudden and unexpected great
volcano which caused black volcanic salt to cover all over
it. Even today black tar like substance is found on
the banks on this lake. It was this volcanic salt which
caused the lake to become salty.

It is ironic that this judgment on these 2 cities which was
once famous for homosexuality and all kinds of
diverse sexuality were destroyed by the wrath of God is
today cause of tourist attraction. I doubt if people knew
why the lake is salty and what happened on its banks
that they will go and enjoy it so much. It will surely
cause fear in their hearts and minds. It was not just a
coincidental volcano (nothing is coincidental) but one
prophesied and the only people saved from it were Lot
and his daughters. Homosexuality is nothing but abuse or mocking
of the image in which man and women are made and this
causes great anger to the Lord.

Today His Word (Jesus Christ - Word made flesh) and Spirit
(Both manifest and glorify His true Image) are given
unto us and those who reject and mock His Word and Spirit
anger Him even more.

In today's message the Lord is warning all those cities
which reject Him and His Spirit. People may say we
have Christians among us but a person calling oneself a
Christian is not necessary one. I would say blessed are you
if you have a Lord's righteous dwelling amongst you.
You may face problems but they will not overwhelm you and
you will be saved from them. So either you prayer such are there
amongst you or strive to be one.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are Light and your light is goodness for all, but
evil blocks your light. Lord, You are Holy and sin
brings wrath to You. It is sin that kept us away from You.
By the sacrifice of Jesus we are protected by His
righteousness. Lord, we pray for all those cities
wherein your sheep dwell but there are none that truly walk
on your path. We plead for your mercy and your grace on

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Genesis 18:20-33
20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and
Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
21 I will go down now, and see whether they have
done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto
me; and if not, I will know.
22 And the men turned their faces from thence, and
went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.
23 And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also
destroy the righteous with the wicked?
24 Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the
city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the
fifty righteous that are therein?
25 That be far from thee to do after this manner, to
slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous
should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not
the Judge of all the earth do right?
26 And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty
righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for
their sakes.
27 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have
taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and
28 Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty
righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five?
And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not
destroy it.
29 And he spake unto him yet again, and said,
Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And he said, I
will not do it for forty’s sake.
30 And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be
angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found
there. And he said, I will not do it, if I find thirty
31 And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to
speak unto the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found
there. And he said, I will not destroy it for twenty's
32 And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I
will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be
found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten's
33 And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left
communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.

Genesis 19:1-13
1 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and
Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to
meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the
2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray
you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and
wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on
your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in
the street all night.
3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned
in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a
feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.
4 But before they lay down, the men of the city,
even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and
young, all the people from every quarter:
5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where
are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out
unto us, that we may know them.
6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut
the door after him,
7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so
8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not
known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do
ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do
nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of
my roof.
9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again,
This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a
judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them.
And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and
came near to break the door.
10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot
into the house to them, and shut to the door.
11 And they smote the men that were at the door of
the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they
wearied themselves to find the door.
12 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any
besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and
whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this
13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry
of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the
LORD hath sent us to destroy it.

Looking in the Mirror

Daniel 10:7-9
7 And I Daniel alone saw the vision: for the men
that were with me saw not the vision; but a great quaking
fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves.
8 Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great
vision, and there remained no strength in me: for my
comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I
retained no strength.
9 Yet heard I the voice of his words: and when I
heard the voice of his words, then was I in a deep sleep on my
face, and my face toward the ground.

When Daniel saw this vision was it a dream kind of vision?

It is written that the people with him could physically
experience the power of the 'vision' that Daniel was
having and they ran away.

When Jesus ascended to Heaven it is written He went up in a
cloud. Is Heaven up? Up from USA or up from
Australia? Do we not realize the earth is round and our up is
someone else's down?

The Hebrew word 'marah' used here for vision refers to a
looking glass or mirror.

A mirror is used to see the reflection of reality; it does
not show what does not exist but that which does.

What Daniel saw was not just a dream but a look at the
spiritual mirror. A spiritual shows the spirit world
of which our creation is part of. In the spirit world time
is not like our earthly time so one can see across time.

In the Bible there are prophesies which are specifically
given as per earthly time and there are prophesies
which are given according to spiritual time. To gauge
earthly time the Lord has given us the stars, the moon and
all heavenly bodies for the whole universe which
works like a clock. To gauge spiritual time one cannot see
the clock but can see the results of the clock. Most of the
scriptures in the Bible are based on this spiritual

But not to let spiritually growing man to be lost the Lord
has given us some hints of the spiritual clock with
the earthly clock. Thus for example the exact time of
Jesus' second coming is not given in earthly clock but with
spiritual clock and therefore even though disclosed it is
still not known when. Thus to know it we need to see
in the spiritual mirror at the spiritual clock and it
effects the fall of events in this world.

When Jesus was asked the question 'when will the end come?'
He did not give a date but gave a series of events.
Until all the events as per prophesies are not fulfilled
the coming of the end will not happen. So to know things
let us not look at our earthly clock but looking at
the unfolding of events as per prophesies.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, to save us You gave us your Word - the Book of
Instructions. Lord Jesus, as we eat your Flesh and
break our bodies like You did for the glory of God open our
minds to understand your Word and thus coming to know the
Truth help us walk according to your Instructions and
return unto You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 24:3-31
3 And as he sat on the mount of Olives, the
disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall
these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming,
and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed
that no man lead you astray.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am the
Christ; and shall lead many astray.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars; see
that ye be not troubled: for these things must needs come to
pass; but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom; and there shall be famines and earthquakes
in divers places.
8 But all these things are the beginning of travail.
9 Then shall they deliver you up unto tribulation,
and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all the
nations for my name’s sake.
10 And then shall many stumble, and shall deliver up
one another, and shall hate one another.
11 And many false prophets shall arise, and shall
lead many astray.
12 And because iniquity shall be multiplied, the
love of the many shall wax cold.
13 But he that endureth to the end, the same shall
be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached
in the whole world for a testimony unto all the nations;
and then shall the end come.
15 When therefore ye see the abomination of
desolation, which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet,
standing in the holy place (let him that readeth
16 then let them that are in Judaea flee unto the
17 let him that is on the housetop not go down to
take out things that are in his house:
18 and let him that is in the field not return back
to take his cloak.
19 But woe unto them that are with child and to them
that give suck in those days!
20 And pray ye that your flight be not in the
winter, neither on a sabbath:
21 for then shall be great tribulation, such as hath
not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor
ever shall be.
22 And except those days had been shortened, no
flesh would have been saved: but for the elect’s sake
those days shall be shortened.
23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is
the Christ, or, Here; believe it not.
24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false
prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so as to
lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
25 Behold, I have told you beforehand.
26 If therefore they shall say unto you, Behold, he
is in the wilderness; go not forth: Behold, he is in the inner
chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh forth from the east,
and is seen even unto the west; so shall be the coming of
the Son of man.
28 Wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles
be gathered together.
29 But immediately after the tribulation of those
days the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give
her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the
powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 and then shall appear the sign of the Son of man
in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn,
and they shall see the Son of man coming on the clouds of
heaven with power and great glory.
31 And he shall send forth his angels with a great
sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect
from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Post  Admin on Tue 22 Feb 2011, 5:01 pm

We are living in Prophetic Times

Isaiah 28:22 - Now therefore be ye not mockers [talk
arrogantly], lest your bands [yoke] be made strong: for I
have heard from the Lord GOD of hosts a consumption
[termination / destruction] , even determined upon
the whole earth.

About a year ago (10-02-10) I had sent a mail warning about
the turmoil going to happen in the Middle-east
specially with the Arabs and again about 20 days back (06-02-11)
this same message was repeated with further details as to
what extend and within what period this will
accomplish, I received nasty mails from Muslim evangelist /
followers and even Christians (secular mined). The last
mail sent to me even had historical study to show me
that the scriptures I quoted were already fulfilled and I
was not talking sense.

If I too had to study it with my own wisdom I too would
have responded like them, but since I knew it was a
message from the Lord I boldly send it and within a short
time of my mail things manifested in the Middle-East.

The same was with my mail on food becoming very expensive,
sicknesses, earthquakes (including volcanoes) etc.
stating the stages before the main destructions (01-07-10)
not to be mistaken with the end days.

Today's message is also on similar lines but not to the
heathens (people of other beliefs) but to our so
called secular mined Christians (including Catholics).

The days we are living in most people think are the end
days and thus are losing a lot. The days we are
living in are start of a very important period a long before
the end days. In the Bible a lot is written about this era
by many of the Prophets. These are the times when the
limit which the Lord has set for the vanity of man has
almost reached and thus called the Day of the Lord's revenge. The
Lord is now starting to act on things He spoke about but
refrained in His mercy. But now that His abundant
grace is available and His Spirit is being poured out more
and more, He expects change in us.

The Lord is not expecting us to be a perfect Christian, for
no man alone can be like Christ but in the end the
collective balance sheets of all His sheep will be like
Him. This we will understand when we understand why Paul in
his early letters wrote about working for our
salvation with fear and trembling and in his last letter
before he was killed (2nd letter to Timothy) he speaks with
confidence as if he had already got a confirmed
ticket in hand.

All that the Lord is asking of us as in today's message is
that we do not open our mouths and speak against His
Word for He will harden our hearts even further by
increasing the yoke of bondages. In the days ahead we are
going to see destructions at magnitudes ever imagined
and yet through these destructions those who really hold
unto the Lord will pass through without even hurting their
feet to a stone. We need to open our hearts and minds
unto His Word and even if we do not understand let us
not reject it but ask the Spirit of the Lord to reveal it unto

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You love us very dearly, but as our Father You do
want to see us eternally perish so You try to
discipline us by chastising us. You are gentle and would not do
to your people more than what they can take. Your
grace is abundant on us and your Spirit is poured
more and more on us. Lord we pray that our hearts are not
hardened and we keep a hold on our tongue and show our
faithlessness inside.

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
1 Corinthians 2:1-5
1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with
excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you
the testimony of God.
2 For I determined not to know any thing among you,
save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and
in much trembling.
4 And my speech and my preaching was not with
enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the
Spirit and of power:
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of
men, but in the power of God.

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

2 Timothy 4:7-8
7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my
course, I have kept the faith:

righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me
at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also
that love his appearing.

Matthew 24:4-13
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed
that no man lead you astray.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am the
Christ; and shall lead many astray.

that ye be not troubled: for these things must needs come to

Correction in Tsunami Waves coming out of the Sea
There is some correction in my mail titled
Tsunami Waves coming out of the Sea. In the mail I
had mistakenly mentioned the Church of Smyrna as the 3rd
church and which symbolized the Catholic Church. The Church
of Smyrna is the 2nd stage of the Church and is the
dark age of the Catholic Church.

We need to understand the dark ages of Catholic Church was
the period around 500AD to 1400AD and is the most terrible
era of the Church, which the Lord rightly called the Church of
Satan. It was during this era called the dark ages of
Christianity where we had more Christians killed by
the Catholic Church than any other religion. It was during
this period in time the Cardinals even killed each other to
become Popes. At one stage there were even 2 Popes
both calling themselves official Popes!

This stage climaxed with the Pope having incestuous relationship
with his own children and appointing his own family member
(brother) as the next Pope. It was this Pope who made the
triple crown worn by Popes with blaspheme words of the Pope
being king of kings and Lord over 3 levels of creation
and is still used when a new Pope is appointed.

The 3rd stage the Church of Pergamos is the second stage of the
Catholic Church and the Church as we know of today. It does
not mean the improvement made it a good Church, NO.

As the Lord says in His letter to this Church:

Revelation 2:13-16
13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where
Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast
not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my
faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan
14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast
there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught
Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel,
to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit
15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the
Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will
fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

This Church is still the seat of Satan and the mother of all
false religions. It does proclaim the Name of Jesus
Christ and holds fast to the faith even in case of death
and this nature is compared to the martyr Antipas (which
means 'like the Father' and should be confused with Herod's
son and the second Herod).

The things which the Lord holds against this Church are like the
doctrine of Balaam which it follows. Balaam was a prophet of God
who sold the Truth for money. This Church is accused of
idol worship and partaking in the sacrifice to idols
(burning candles, offering flowers to idols, sharing sweets
in name of idols are all part of this). The doctrine of Nicolas
is the hierarchy of the Church which is not according to
the Body of Christ as given in the Word of God.

Blessed are the poor in spirit

Matthew 5:3 - Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs
is the kingdom of heaven.

Today's message is one of the first beatitudes and I like
the word broken be-attitudes. It gives us the
attitude we need to have. And the first attitude is to be poor
in spirit.

Being 'poor in spirit' does not mean to be lacking in
spirit, but knowing how much one lacks.

The Kingdom of God is an endless river of fresh live giving
water and a person needs to dwell by it to live. The
moment a person says this one bottle or these bottles which
I have filled will survive me for life it shows the
foolishness of that person and such fools surely die.

We should always acknowledge what we have in sense of
spiritual and worldly understanding and ability is
very limited. A scientist will never say he knows
everything in science and he does not need to discover
more. Every scientist knows the breadth and depth of
science is limitless and what he or she found is just the
foundation of a greater understanding.

If this is the attitude of those of this world then imagine
what should be our attitudes who are dwellers of the
spirit world from which manifests the physical world and
which is countless times more than this physical world.

In spirit whatever we have today and we know today has just
opened a new door to a bigger room from which we
receive and enter another room. Knowing the real limits of
the unlimited Kingdom of God is also called the Fear of the
Lord, thus being poor in spirit means having fear of
the Lord.

Comparing to the Kingdom of God we below poverty line just
beggars, whom the Lord calls as My sons.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, we thank You for making us citizens of your Kingdom
by your Son Jesus Christ. Lord help us know the depth
of what we lack for we know that we do not stand anything
with comparison to Jesus Christ Who has humbled Himself
below the Angels, then we can imagine what the Angels
are? And the Angels being the elementary beings of Heaven
then we may not be able to imagine what the higher being
would be. You Lord are beyond boundaries of the
imagination of all mankind put together. We praise and
worship You for You are our God...

This we declare in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Psalms 111:10 [italics removed]
10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom:
a good understanding have all they that do: his praise
endureth for ever.

Proverbs 1:7
7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of
knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 2:1-9
1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my
commandments with thee;
2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and
apply thine heart to understanding;
3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest
up thy voice for understanding;
4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for
her as for hid treasures;
5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD,
and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth
cometh knowledge and understanding.
7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is
a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth
the way of his saints.
9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and
judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.

Rewarding one self

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

Just in the morning as I was getting up from my bed, my
wife and I were discussing on the difference between
the Church we were in and what is happening with the
leaders in many Believer Churches.

Go to a meeting held for Pastors or meet leaders of
ministries and you will find them rewarding
themselves really well. Check out their vehicles and the
electronics at their houses and like many lay people say it
religion is good business.

What we see in the Catholic Church is the other extreme the
Priest are made to live physically like beggars (very
mere wages are given as per activity they do with something
like fixed pocket money, but as you go higher in the system
their stomachs are well rewarded - ironically most of
them are mostly sick and cannot enjoy it although
they greatly crave for it).

Most Believer leaders (Pastors and Ministry leaders)
believe in God being a God of abundance. No doubt God
does bless us but like I always say if you have been
blessed more, it means you need to get down more often on
your knees and pray longer and harder for you are
been tested more.

Understand the one word that is root in the life of a
Christians is OVERCOMER. Jesus Christ by His
sacrifice saved us but things did not stop there. He gave us His
Spirit so that by the help of His Spirit we become
overcomers. The foundation of becoming an overcomer
is knowledge of the Truth. That is the reason why we
receive first the Spirit of Truth when we are baptized in
Jesus Christ; He becomes the Rock of our salvation
and the Rock on which the Church is built.

Some days back a sister forwarded me a mail regarding some
top anointed Men and Women of God being removed from
broadcast television in USA. If one visits the websites of
any of these persons and it is like visiting an online mall
running one the most complex sales and marketing

I do agree funds are needed to run ministries and churches
but that does not mean that one stands at the door
with a bowl or pickpockets the innocent.

The best way to learn as how to manage finances of a large
congregation can be learnt from Moses (who handed
people in millions) in the earlier Church and Paul (who
handled many Churches across a quarter of the world) from
the new Church.

Jesus too showed us the way to handle finances in an
excellent way in His earthly life examples. He gave
this charge to Judas. Jesus did not run out of money for the
group had always sufficient for them. Jesus lived without
physical luxury but yet wore one of the finest linen
robes any ordinary man could buy. It was not for comfort or
luxury but for purpose. Since we are not mature in Spirit like
Jesus therefore I will not take Him as an example.

We see in the life of Paul and Peter as example. Paul
earned for his provision as tent maker and Peter did
take from the Church collection but only for his basic needs. It
depends on the grace one is in that one can take that
decision. None is better than the other.

Moses spent an extravagant amount on the Sanctuary but all
was according to instructions of the Lord. God did
not instruct Moses so as to show great and beautiful monument
is associated with our God but each and every item, even to
smallest detail teaches us of the Kingdom of God it
was all with purpose.

The Catholic Church on the other also builds beautiful
monuments with a purpose to misguide the people and
destroy their faith.

Finances of the Church and ministries are for building the
Church - the people. Leaders can take from it but it
should be according to need. They should remember that they
need to control their fleshy desires and not let money or
power hit to their heads.

In today's message the Lord is telling us once again (this
message was given before also on 08 May 2010) as He
is working on other this at the same time He is going to
search through His people with a candle and those who have
build castles for themselves will lose them.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You have made us in this world in the flesh so that
we overcome this flesh and become worthy to be your
Sons. You knew it is not possible for us to overcome by
ourselves, so You by your sacrifice gave us your Spirit to
help us become overcomers. Lord, we pray for all
Church leaders especially that they are led by your Spirit
and they live a life according to your heart and your will.
We rebuke and bind their flesh and command their
inner-man to return to You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

The Sermon on the Mount - the Attitude of a Christian
Matthew 5:1,2 - And seeing the multitudes, he went up
into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came
unto him: And he opened his mouth, and taught them,
The Sermon on the Mount is one of the most powerful and
extensive teaching of Jesus wherein He used very less
symbolization but chewed the food and fed like mothers do
to small infants.
The sermon was not for all people but for the disciples
only therefore Jesus drew them out of the crowd and
taking them to the mount spoke to them. By the amount of
text which has been documented by Matthew who used to
follow Jesus, it seems there were there for a long
time segregated from the crowd.
The topics Jesus touched on were the Beatitudes which gave
encouragement for overcoming this world [Matt
5:3-12]. Then Jesus touched upon salt and light which were
to do preserving the goodness and shining it unto those who are
in darkness [Matt 5:13-20]. Later He touched on
personal relationships and how to respect ourselves
and others [Matt 5:21-48]. After this He spoke to them
about attitude when giving to the poor, standing before God
and receiving from the Lord [Matt 6:1-21]. Then He
spoke about sanctification of the inner-man [Matt
6:22-34]. The next area He spoke about was presumption and
respecting Holy things [Matt 7:1-6]. Then He spoke on
our attitude about receiving from God while giving the
reality of the result and the reality of God’s
cannot be fooled [Matt 7:7-23]. And lastly He ended
with His role in the whole matter in building the perfect
person [Matt 7:24-27].
What we see from a bird's eye view of the Sermon on the
Mount, it was more about the attitude of a disciple
than anything else. Jesus touched every area of the
attitude of discipleship on the Mount.
If we need to be a true disciple of Jesus or in other words
a true Christian the most important area other than
our work we need to concentrate upon is our attitude. The
result is important but also important for a Christian is the
means. We can not one day stand before God and say 'see
Lord the number of people I made You known too' or
'see all the great things I have done in your Name'. Like
Jesus said on the mount we will be given the boot if our
attitude does not project God. We need to project His
goodness, His mercy, His righteousness, His love, His
patience, His tolerance, His perfectness etc...
There are many people spreading the Gospel, serving the
needy, ministering to the sick, teaching the Bible etc.
but how many of them stand as true disciples?
We are not just soldiers; we are also servants, messengers,
ambassadors and royals.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You made us your children in your image. Lord as we
bring your light in this dark world let us also by
projecting the true You in us for this world does not know
You. Lord, You are the potter, as You put us on the
spinning wheel by your gentle touch guide us and mold
us every day of our live. Speak to our hearts and
strengthen our weak areas...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

Tsunami Waves coming out of the Sea
Daniel 2:36-38
36 This is the dream; and we will tell the
interpretation thereof before the king.
37 Thou, O king, art king of kings, unto whom
the God of heaven hath given the kingdom, the power, and the
strength, and the glory;
38 and wheresoever the children of men dwell,
the beasts of the field and the birds of the heavens hath he
given into thy hand, and hath made thee to rule over them
all: thou art the head of gold.
You may wonder what has the title to do with today's
message. Before I get to the message let me give you
the background.
When the Israelites started disobeying God during the times
of Jeremiah the Lord delivered them into the hands of
King Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon. King
Nebuchadnezzar although was a heathen yet believed in
Jehovah, in other words respecting all other gods he
also respected the Lord God. Yet we see that the favor of God
was on him to the extent that the Lord called him 'my
He was a child of God having the seed of faith but lost
among the pagans and we see God did work in him right
till his last days. He suffered in the wilderness eating
grass and weeds but was disciplined by the Lord.
The title King of king has been used for two people in the
Bible one is for Jesus and the other is for the king
of Babylon. Why was such a royal title given unto Babylon?
As we know the Old Testament is a shadow of the Spiritual
world. Even the book of Daniel with this
understanding is written half Aramaic and half Hebrew showing
The Babylon of those times was a shadow of the real Babylon
which is the false church as we know today as the
Catholic Church. In the letter to the seven churches in the
book of Revelation which are stages of the church of God,
the Catholic church is the 3rd church called the
church of Smyrna which is another Greek word for myrrh.
Myrrh was used as an ingredient in perfume presented to Jesus as
an infant by the wise men and also as a slow poison. Jesus
was given grape juice mixed with this ingredient on
the crucifix and which He refused.
This church is built on ideology of Nicolaitans of which
the second Church was warned about. Nicolas was a
heretic deacon and the name means in Hebrew as 'destroyer of
the people'. This spirit was there during the times of Paul
and which Paul warned also of in his letter.
If one looks of the description of this church given in the
letter is as follow:
1) The Lord can see through their works which they
show as holy
2) Even thou it is rich (worldly) yet the Lord
says it is very poor (spiritually)
3) The blasphemy they do while calling themselves
as people of the true Israel
4) It is the synagogue of Satan (Whore on the beast)
If we read Babylon was made king of king not of the people
of God but king of kings of the children of people
and also the beast of field and birds of heavens which
symbolize earthly spirits and of evil spirits (fallen
The Promta Bibliothica Vol 6 which is an official
document of the Catholic Church has the following
text about the Pope the official king of the Roman Catholic
'More over the superiority and the power of the Roman
Pontiff by no means pertain only to heavenly things,
to earthly things and to things under the earth, but are
even over angels than whom he is greater. So that if it
were possible that the angels might err in the faith,
or might think contrary to the faith, they could be
judged and excommunicated by the Pope'.
'The Pope is as it were god on earth sole sovereign of the
faithful of Christ, chief kings of kings, plentitude
of power'.
Another official document of this church 'La Civila
Cattlica' March 18, 1871 also speaks of the Pope
being the king of kings and lord of lords.
If one opens Catholic National July edition 1895 the Pope
is described as follow:
'The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ,
but is Jesus Christ Himself hidden under the veil of
This 'little horn' from the book of Daniel was allowed to
open its mouth and speak blasphemy against the Lord
God. This Church is run by the beast (Prince of Tyre /
Tyrus in Greek ‘Petros’) who makes himself
god of the seas (symbolizing generations of people).
Just a few days back the Lord gave me a vision of huge
tsunami like waves coming out of the sea. The amount
of people we will soon see coming out from this church and
coming into the Truth will be like tsunami waves.
Like the Lord said about those who are true unto death
believing in Him and his Word will be given the Crown
of Life.
In Jeremiah as the Lord said He will be using His people
who have come out from this church of Babylon and
grown in Spirit to bring down the strongholds of this
church and glorify the real Lord of Lords and the real King
of Kings not of the sea but of the people of God and
the Angels of God.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord God, You alone know your people and the best way to
make them like You. You put them through fire
purifying and making them perfect. Lord we intercede for
those who are your and yet in deceived by the beast, may
your grace be abundant on them and their hearts not
hardening and suffer more but let them see the Truth as You
bought many of us out of it...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

R.D SOUZA Saved by faith  - Page 38 Empty Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Tue 15 Feb 2011, 2:41 pm

The Wine as the Blood
Luke 22:17,18 - And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and
said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves: For I
say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine,
until the kingdom of God shall come.

Today I received the same scripture to share on and would
like to touch on the aspect of the wine as the Blood
of Jesus Christ.
Firstly I want to make clear what Jesus and His disciples
took was not wine are what we know. In other words it
was not fermented wine but was fresh unfermented wine also
called grape juice.
Grapes are one of the most important symbols of a Christian
life and Jesus showed us this through His life on
earth. To understand this you need to understand how good
grapes are grown.
The grape plant being a vine does stand by its self so is
supported from a frame above it. The farmer makes a high
frame and hangs the vine by the frame. As the plant grows
he tightens the ties thus bring its closer to the frame, he
takes the branches and by a string pulls and ties it in all
directions. He does not pull it too hard so as to break it
but lightly so as to enable the vine to spread in all
directions and hold more fruit.
Grapes are a watery fruit but are best grown in places where the
climate is a little extreme and lacking water. You will find the
sweetest grapes coming from these regions. People knowing to
grow grapes and wanting sweet grapes will never put extra
water to the plant else you land up getting watery but
not so sweet grapes. Too little water is also dangerous and
will not result in fruits, only a skilled husband will know
according to the earth it is planted and the climate.
Grapes represent self sacrifice or discipleship and the
Husbandman of the vine is Jesus' Father (Holy Spirit) who
is a perfect farmer, and He will make us to be like
Jesus. So we need to depend totally on the Holy Spirit
standing only by His grace, reaching out to His people and in
the process bearing much fruit. Not asking for prosperity
of this world but living by the basic necessities, doing
the Lord's work not by our strength but by the power of the Holy
When Jesus said this is my Blood poured out to you He meant His
life which was poured out to us for the first instance of the
word blood in Bible represents life (Genesis 4, 9). When
we gather at the table of the Lord and drink the wine
(grape juice) representing His Blood we are suppose to
remember how Jesus sacrifices Himself for us, how He lived a
selfless life of holiness for our sake so that He would
be found without blemish by God the Father.
God gave life to us for the purpose to prosper us although He has
the right to take it away He is not interested to see us
lacking life. When man sinned and went far from God a
blood offering was required so as to symbolize man
surrendering his life to God. Since man could not offer his own
life and still live therefore the life of an animal was done
as a symbol. Jesus became the sacrificial animal and was
offered on our behalf. This Blood became a covenant
between God and man, a covenant of grace. This does not mean
the previous covenants do not exist but all previous
covenants are already in this New Covenant at the same
time grace has replaced the areas of judgment.
By using grape juice as the Blood Jesus did the perfect thing for
us. He not only stopped the killing of an animal or any
living being once for all since He was an eternal
sacrifice but also showed us how we can partake in His
sacrifice by been sweet grapes and offering our fruits as a
sacrifice unto God.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, we thank You for coming as man and being a perfect
and eternal sacrifice under which we can take refuge and
come closer to God. Lord God, You are giver of life and
by being far from You we cannot have life. Lord as we gather
at your table and have the broken bread representing your Body
and the grape juice representing your Blood, help us Lord
to understand their meaning and implement them into our
lives so that we become part and recipients of the fruit
of your sacrifice...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

Amos 7:1 - Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me; and,
behold, he formed grasshoppers [locust] in the beginning
of the shooting up of the latter growth; and, lo, it was
the latter growth after the king's mowings.
The locust has multiple meanings in scriptures. Before I
get to scriptures let me give a brief description to
you about the creature.
The locust is an insect that is feared throughout history.
It is a cousin of the timid grasshopper looking alike
in its solitary stage. When the numbers of them increase it
causes them to rub their hind legs frequently and this
simulates behavioral change in them taking a
gregarious stage. This is not only an inside change it also
causes an outside change; this insect changes its color and looks
a complete different insect. They group together hoping as
nymphs and flying as adults, moving like an army
consuming all greenery especially young plants eating
equivalent to its weight each day traveling in the night
according to the wind. Half a square km call hold up
to 30-40 million and swarms can be of even a 1000 square
kms thus having billions of locusts. They lay eggs deep in the
soil which can remain dormant over long periods and sustain
great levels of heat. The moment the climate becomes
suitable they hatch and come out. Some breeds of locusts
grow even to a length of 6inches.
In the book of Moses it has been shown as a curse of God to
destroy the harvest of this world. They were plaques
sent by God to punish man when man sinned greatly against
In the book of Joel and Amos they symbolize unbeliever
population which is overgrowing and over consuming so
much that it starts to harm creation and people of God. God
maintains a control ratio between His people and worldly
people who are created like grass not having the seed
of faith in them to bear Fruit. In today's message the
vision shown to Prophet Amos uses this symbolization. The
Lord is saying enough to the number of unbelievers
overflowing, He is going to do something in this matter
and soon we will see more believers than ever before.
In spiritual sense locust symbolizes hurts. When the number
of hurts increases it causes the person to frequently
think on it and thus changes the behavior of the person
not only from inside but also externally. That person groups
along with other people also nurturing hurts like him
or herself and together daily start to harm other
people spreading eggs of hurts in them. This hurting causing
generations and generations to start behaving like animals
killing people even at the cost of their own
The only ways to destroy these swarms of locusts is to
spray insecticide on them or on the vegetation they
consume. Spraying of insecticide in spiritual sense
symbolizes using authority. Jesus gave us authority not
only to cast demons but also over weaknesses. A
person matured in faith and having authority can rebuke
hurts and heal people from inside. It sounds very simple
but the problem is there are very, very few Men or
Women of God who have grown to the stage of authority
most are struggling between stages of faith and the borders
touching authority.
An easier and simple option which every child of God can do
and has proved very effective so much so that it has
made a particular breed of locust (Rocky Mountain locust)
extinct is sustained cultivation. Sustained cultivation in
spiritual term means continual spiritual
productivity. One needs to be continual fruitful in spirit, this
causes all old wounds to be destroyed even without much
knowledge. Forget about doing wrong things even not
doing any good in spiritual sense may cause small hurts to
one day pop up from nowhere and to suddenly take a
gregarious nature.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, we thank You for You are a merciful God. You love
your people and do not let your anger to overflow and
destroy them completely. Lord, your people have been
suffering since ages and the burden on them has been
growing. Today we look up to You and we know You in
your mercy have already started to answer our plead. We
thank You that You are sending among us people who are
taught by You and who hold authority in your Name...
This we declare in Jesus' Name, Amen.

Exodus 10:13-15
13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land
of Egypt, and the LORD brought an east wind upon the land all
that day, and all that night; and when it was morning, the
east wind brought the locusts.
14 And the locusts went up over all the land of
Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were
they; before them there were no such locusts as they,
neither after them shall be such.
15 For they covered the face of the whole earth, so
that the land was darkened; and they did eat every herb of the
land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had
left: and there remained not any green thing in the
trees, or in the herbs of the field, through all the land
of Egypt.
Joel 1:3-4
3 Tell ye your children of it, and let your children
tell their children, and their children another generation.

locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the
canker-worm eaten; and that which the canker-worm hath left
hath the caterpillar eaten.
Joel 2:23-26
23 Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in
the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain
moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the
rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the
first month.
24 And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the
fats shall overflow with wine and oil.
25 And I will restore to you the years that the
locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the
palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and
praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt
wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.
Deuteronomy 28:42
42 All thy trees and the fruit of thy ground shall
the locust possess.
Luke 9:1-2
1 And he called the twelve together, and gave them
power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases
[weaknesses] .

God, and to heal the sick.

Great vengeance on the dwellers of the sea coast
Ezekiel 25:16,17 - Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD;
Behold, I will stretch out mine hand upon the Philistines,
and I will cut off the Cherethims, and destroy the
remnant of the sea coast. And I will execute
great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they
shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my
vengeance upon them.
The Lord has been tolerating and tolerating and tolerating
(I could go on pages after pages) since ages and ages
and ages (there too the same) the foolish and rebellious
man for one of the natures of God is slow to anger. But
this glass which the Lord has limited for man has now
come to its brim. Now that He has given us more and
more of His Spirit and that His grace is abundant on us through
the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the Lord is says these
cannot be in vain. Either make your mind to be His
child or be the child of Satan by being lost in this world.
In today's message the Lord is talking of taking serious
action against 3 types of people namely the Philistines,
Cherethims and the remnants of the sea coast.
The Lord is not talking of the people who existed during
the time of Ezekiel but from the meaning of the words
and the spiritual symbolization we will understand whom the
Lord is speaking of.
Philistines means immigrants
Cherethims means executioners - this name was also given to
the Cretans (meaning fleshy) or proto-Philistines.
The remnants of the sea coast - the word 'sea'
symbolize humanity which includes generations of all
religions, all cultures and all their beliefs.
The Lord is speaking to all Christian immigrations people
who call themselves Christians but are not, they
behave like unbelievers. Like today I received a mail which
a person replied to my yesterday's mail about healing the
sick by laying of hands and the person said these
things were told only to the Apostles and not to all for
people do fall sick. This shows how lack of faith the person has
and shows how the sacrifice of Jesus does not mean anything
in his life. By the sacrifice of Jesus we are healed
and peace was made between God and man, but we fall sick
because of our lack of faith and because we do not apply the
Sacrifice into our lives. The Christians does not become a
Christian by being born in a Christian family, nor by
calling oneself one or by reading the Bible. A Christian is
a person who believes in Christ and all that Christ did for
him, he is the one who walks in the instructions of
Christ. There was also a mail I received asking for
prayer for some Christians whom the Hindus are getting
converted back to Hindus in a large fair (mela) in northern
India. Firstly how can a person knowing the Truth and
knowing Christ can deny Him and still live? A person
does not get convert to Christian unless he is converted
from inside being renewed from inside. If they even
entertain the thought of going back, it means they
were not Christians in the first place and someone fooled
them with a name tag or sold them the religion.
The second category talks of people who have become
Christians because they want to be blessed in their
worldly life. No doubt by faith we do receive all our
worldly needs but wanting them more than what is needed
goes against the foundation of a Christians. This we
will understand when we understand why the grape wine is
one of the most important fruit (symbol) for a Christian (the
others being pomegranate, fig and olive). It was with this
understanding Jesus called grape juice as His blood
sacrifice given to sanctify us.
The third category refers those who stay on the coast line
of the sea, meaning people who promote harmony
between God and Satan. They are people promote harmony between
all religions calling all gods are one god. A
Christian does not mean he needs to be an extremist or
fanatic. A Christian is called to live in social harmony even
with those who do not know God, helping them in their
time of need, thus become a light to those in
darkness. But a Christian should not live in harmony of belief
by compromising the Truth with vanity. A Christian should
be strong and non-tolerating in his understanding
with the understanding of the world but at the same time
soft in heart emitting mercy unto those who need.
Time and again we are receiving warning and the Sword is
drawn out to strike so let us review our spiritual
lives and if we are in among these 3 category let us fall
at the feat of the Lord and asking for forgiveness let us
change our way of life.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are a merciful God Who is slow to anger. Before
time You gave many warnings and as written You will
take actions against the spiritual stiff neck people. Like
You said either be hot or cold but You will spit out those
who are lukewarm, for You are a Holy and Righteous
God and value your Name. You will not allow your Name
to be let low by anyone. Lord, we pray that by your grace and
Spirit we show ourselves as truly your people and your
glory surround us...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Revelation 3:15-19
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor
hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor
cold, I will spew thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and have gotten
riches, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou
art the wretched one and miserable and poor and blind and
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold refined by fire,
that thou mayest become rich; and white garments, that thou
mayest clothe thyself, and that the shame of thy nakedness
be not made manifest; and eyesalve to anoint thine
eyes, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I reprove and chasten: be
zealous therefore, and repent.
Exodus 34:6-7
6 And Jehovah passed by before him, and proclaimed,
Jehovah, Jehovah, a God merciful and gracious, slow to
anger, and abundant in lovingkindness and truth;
7 keeping lovingkindness for thousands, forgiving
iniquity and transgression and sin; and that will by no means
clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon
the children, and upon the children's children, upon
the third and upon the fourth generation.
Matthew 19:23-26
23 And Jesus said unto his disciples, Verily I say
unto you, It is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom
of heaven.
24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a
camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to
enter into the kingdom of God.
25 And when the disciples heard it, they were
astonished exceedingly, saying, Who then can be saved?
26 And Jesus looking upon them said to them, With
men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
Haggai 2:19
19 Is the seed yet in the barn? yea, the vine, and
the fig-tree, and the pomegranate, and the olive-tree have not
brought forth; from this day will I bless you. --
Appointed by God
Jeremiah 38:1,2 - Then Shephatiah the son of Mattan, and
Gedaliah the son of Pashur, and Jucal the son of
Shelemiah, and Pashur the son of Malchiah, heard the
words that Jeremiah had spoken unto all the
people, saying, Thus saith the LORD, He that remaineth in
this city shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by
the pestilence: but he that goeth forth to the
Chaldeans shall live; for he shall have his life for a
prey, and shall live.
Jeremiah is considered as one of the craziest yet the one
of the greatest Man of God during those times. The
things he was instructed to do and the situations he had to
bear made his life most difficult and sometimes even he
himself cried and thought what he was doing not
helping God's Kingdom but little did he know that he
would be the Paul of the Old Testament. Most of the books
explaining Prophesies like Daniel and Revelation are mostly
written based on the Words the Lord spoke through
I really understand Jeremiah for I too have been in his
shoes (may be his junior shoes). My life too has been
a crazy ride and people who know me will tell you that.
People around me have to change or else run away especially
those whom God has called. When the Lord asks me to
speak to them, He also starts His work on them then it
is either give in or give up.
Like Jeremiah there are times I also look at what I am
doing and see I am hurting many a people but what can
I do when they are in the flesh. A nick name a brother kept
during my early days in the Lord was ‘thorn to the
flesh’ for people would fear to even take my
phone. But as spiritual maturity grew in me I do not stop
what I did before but I do it with grace for we dwell in
the times of grace. The fire in my bones does not
allow me to stop like in the case of Jeremiah.
There was an incident of a family member who does work for
the church (Catholic church and famous for
deliverance) , this happened when the Lord started removing me out
of that church. He accused me of having a spirit (evil) in
me so I challenged him to deliver me since he had
that power in him. What happened after that bought fear
in him that he started believing evil spirits were more powerful
than him even though he thought he was in the Lord
(understand even the unbelievers claim to do
deliverances but these cases are never permanently sorted and
reoccur - they deceive).
There was a time I also thought was I picking on the
Catholics just because I felt cheated and robed by
them when I did not know the Lord. But then the Lord spoke
unto me on this matter and assured me what I was doing was
just as He has instructed through Jeremiah (Jer
The people who were hearing Jeremiah had great names and
positions (Shephatiah- "Jehovah has judged",
Gedaliah-"Jehovah is great", Jucal-"Jehovah is able" and
Pashur-"freedom" ) but when they heard an appointed man of
God (Jeremiah means "whom Jehovah has appointed") the
ground below their feet shook.
When the Lord appoints you He may lead you to do some of
the craziest things, do not fear just do it, but do
make sure it is from the Lord and not your flesh leading
you; that can be confirmed if one knows the nature of God
and His Word (since we do not have full understanding
of all scriptures the nature of God helps us confirm if we
are in the right direction). For example there was an evangelist
in the 70's who was very famous for hitting people in the
place of problem and healing them, it was latter in
his old age when his wife died before the helpless him,
that he acknowledged it was faith and not his hitting that
healed people.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are an Awesome God and You do awesome things
through your appointed ones. Lord we live in a time
that needs more and more appointed ones through whom your
power is experienced so that people acknowledge your
presence. We need more Jeremiahs now than ever to
strengthen your Church and bring it out of the confusion
that it is in. The leaders are more concentrated on
pleasing people more than pleasing You. We need a
renewal among the leaders so that they concentrate more not
in just making believers but making disciples for You...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Jeremiah 20:8-13
8 For since I spake, I cried out, I cried violence
and spoil; because the word of the LORD was made a reproach
unto me, and a derision, daily.
9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor
speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as
a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with
forbearing, and I could not stay.
10 For I heard the defaming of many, fear on every
side. Report, say they, and we will report it. All my
familiars watched for my halting, saying, Peradventure he
will be enticed, and we shall prevail against him,
and we shall take our revenge on him.
11 But the LORD is with me as a mighty terrible one:
therefore my persecutors shall stumble, and they shall not
prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not
prosper: their everlasting confusion shall never be
12 But, O LORD of hosts, that triest the righteous,
and seest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance
on them: for unto thee have I opened my cause.
13 Sing unto the LORD, praise ye the LORD: for he
hath delivered the soul of the poor from the hand of evildoers.
Lamentations 1:12-13
12 Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by?
behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow, which
is done unto me, wherewith the LORD hath afflicted me in
the day of his fierce anger.
13 From above hath he sent fire into my bones, and
it prevaileth against them: he hath spread a net for my feet,
he hath turned me back: he hath made me desolate and faint
all the day.
Jeremiah 50:28-30
28 The voice of them that flee and escape out of the
land of Babylon, to declare in Zion the vengeance of the LORD
our God, the vengeance of his temple.
29 Call together the archers against Babylon: all ye
that bend the bow, camp against it round about; let none
thereof escape: recompense her according to her work;
according to all that she hath done, do unto her: for
she hath been proud against the LORD, against the Holy One
of Israel.
30 Therefore shall her young men fall in the streets,
and all her men of war shall be cut off in that day, saith the
LORD. --
I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the
Kingdom of God shall come
Luke 22:17,18 - And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and
said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves: For I
say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine,
until the kingdom of God shall come.
The Muslim believe after death a good man who has done his
duties as a Muslim would enter Firdaws (Paradise) or
Janna (The Garden). A sure shot to enter Janna is to
convert a unbeliever or not convert then take his or her
life meaning killing a infidel (Kafir) assures a
ticket to Janna. Some of the special offerings of Janna is
a lofty mansion, a grand buffet and virgins called 'houris'
to have physical relationship with. Most of the
Muslims read this from their scriptures but do not believe
or understand what they believe in (like most of their
other believes therefore I always say there are only
2 types of Muslims either one who follows the Quran
and becomes a fanatic for jihad is a must to a Muslim or he is a
confused Muslim - these are the ones whom we call as good
Muslim for they do not know or follow what they
This confusion is not only in Muslims it is also among
Christians. We also have the confused Christians
among us who do not know what they believe in therefore are
void of the power of God in their lives. Although the
concept of salvation is confusing in the Quran yet
there is no confusion among the Muslims about what is
written, but on the other hand the Bible gives us a perfect
and True information of Salvation yet today if you
put 5 Believers in a room, you will have 5 different
This confusion was not there in the early stages of the
Believer Churches but crept in latter to cause
confusion and misled people.
Knowing that God is Spirit and the Heaven is a spiritual
space yet people imagine earthly things in Heaven.
They are so much in the flesh that they just cannot
overcome the body or the world and either want to take this
world to Heaven or bring Heaven down to earth. To the
extend I once heard a very famous evangelist stating Heaven
is a place across the universe, that makes God an alien and
this earth creation their product - a belief of the
Church of Scientology and many other religions.
A Scientologist believes his salvation comes when the alien
(superman type being) who is trapped in earth is set
free (in a mountain somewhere and this is the greatest
secret code between them revealed under an oath only on
finishing the 3rd or 4th stage of their spiritual
life; looks like someone gave them a comic book to be their
religious book!). Yet we have many so called famous people
following this religion with knowing what they are into nor
and do most scientologists know this. The irony is
that this church exhibits a huge crucifix on their
It is only the controlling power of the leaders of so
called religions that hold their people back within
their folds. On the other hand true Christians are held
together by powers of love and Truth, but the evil one has
managed to put his tail among us too.
In today's message Jesus said He would not drink the fruit
of the vine unless the coming of the Kingdom of God.
Confusion comes into man about this understanding because
there are places where Jesus said the Kingdom of God
is at hand and at some places as already here.
The word Kingdom comes from the word King and symbolizes
rule or royal power. Everything about creation or
salvation is about man becoming Prince of God (Israel)
which means having authority. Like the prodigal son who
came back and was given a ring on his finger so also
man when he returns to God will be given a ring (white
stone). A ring symbolizes authority and not love which people
assume. In the book of Revelation it is put as white stone
because such stones were used for voting and
symbolizes a citizen's right.
All about Christianity is about getting Sonship and once
man comes into fullness of this power God says it is
sufficient and calls all unto Him. Like bread symbolizes
Manna which means understanding of God’s Word,
similarly grape juice symbolizes the product of all
the fruits of the Holy Spirit. For example patience is not
a Fruit but is a fruit salad to have patience one needs
faith, slow to anger, love, joy, meekness etc. To be
like a grape vine one needs all the Fruits of the Holy
Spirit and grape juice is the product of it. At the end the
Word returns to God after completing its purpose and
Christ receives us with our complete Fruits.
It is only when we come into having authority in the Lord
will the Truth be very clear to us and we will have
Jesus as a very part of us. The secret into coming into
authority is in carrying our CROSS like the Israelites
carried the Ark to close the river Jordan (which
means inheritance) .

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You have called us to be your sons. You have given us
an inheritance in You when we come to You. Lord, let
your people know that they are not ordinary people but
royal people having powers which this world has never seen
or ever imagined. You have given us a demo of this
with your transfiguration before Peter, John and James.
Lord, we pray that as we evangelize to the world we also
concentrate on our inner-man so that we complete the work
within and become sons of God...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

in the earthquake seven thousand persons: and the rest were
affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

Healing of the sick
Mark 1:32-34
32 And at even, when the sun did set, they
brought unto him all that were sick, and them that were
possessed with demons.
33 And all the city was gathered together at the
34 And he healed many that were sick with divers
diseases, and cast out many demons; and he suffered not the
demons to speak, because they knew him.

Before I start I like to apologize for not sending
yesterday's mail. It wasn’t that I had not got a
message to send; I did get a message (Jer 38:20) but feared
to send it.
Just in the morning I was reading a sms from a friend who
sends smses to many on very regular basis and the sms
are prayer requests for people with problem and sicknesses
(mostly critical). The number of requests in per sms and
the frequency of her smses made me think how do they
expect people to pray for each one of them. Knowing
that not praying for a person who has asked for prayers is
serious matter I needed to find an answer to it, so I
started meditating on it through my morning routines.
I started to look at the life of Jesus our perfect example
and when I sat to write I got this message.
We complain of many various Churches but we do not realize
the Lord had designed the Church to be small units
working among the people. Where we fail is in the Truth
part, because God designed them to be one in understanding
of the Truth and in purpose, this is what is not
We see in today's message the whole city had gathered unto
Jesus with their sick and demonic victims, but we
read Jesus healed many and delivered many but not all.
There are cases where Jesus did heal all and delivered them
all, so why did Jesus not do the same here?
You will see the cases where Jesus healed all were when
they were in small groups or in the cases of large
groups it was when they came out of their cities and followed Him
into the desert.
Today we live in an age of electronic communication; any
person can communicate with another person across the
globe instantly, thus enabling people to reach out for help
or prayer requests across the world in seconds.
Praying / healing for the sick is a important part of
Christian life but is not the only thing. A Christian
is also called to make disciples for Jesus by preaching the
Gospel, baptizing them and building them in the Lord. We
are supposed to form local units and pray and heal
the sick among these local units. It makes a difference
when a person sends a sms or mail for healing and when a
person goes to a local Church to be prayed over and
healed. One will find more successes in the later cases.
When people think that man does the healing they will not
do the later and will look out for the special Men of
God to do this job. It is only people who know that God
does the healing and had commissioned every believer to do
this job, will go to the local Church group.
Unless we do not come out of the city mentality we will not
see cases wherein all are healed. The city and the
Church are separate worlds. Church is defined as group of
people separated from the world unto God.
I encourage each one to remember the power to heal is given
to each and every believer, they are suppose to just
lay their hands and it is God who does the job. It is in
only very serious cases you need to approach a Man in
Authority to do the job.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You have made man as part of the Body of Christ. The
Body has a system and process which You have given in
your Word. Lord help us realize it is You Who works through
man and man is a mere tool of your great deals. Open the
eyes of your people and let them trusting in You
function as You defined and receive all that You have
already set for them...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them

Esaias the prophet, saying,
18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my
beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit
upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any
man hear his voice in the streets.
20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking
flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto
21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a
devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the
blind and dumb both spake and saw.
23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not
this the son of David?
Luke 4:38-44
38 And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered
into Simon’s house. And Simon’s wife’s

it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto

any sick with divers diseases brought them unto him; and he

suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was

44 And he preached in the synagogues of Galilee.

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;

and they were healed.

any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay

The Tombstone of Traditions
Daniel 6:16,17 - Then the king commanded, and they
brought Daniel, and cast him into the den of lions. Now the
king spake and said unto Daniel, Thy God whom thou
servest continually, he will deliver thee. And a
stone was brought, and laid upon the mouth of the den; and
the king sealed it with his own signet, and with the
signet of his lords; that nothing might be
changed concerning Daniel.
The biggest killer of Christians has always been one factor
'Tradition'. It is not that traditions are wrong or
bad, but yet even they have always been having hand in
destroying Christians.
In the Bible the Lord asked man to do certain things as
traditions with only one reason to pass on
understanding to the children and to build faith for those
growing or weak in heart. Any tradition followed
which does not build faith even if it does not seem
evil is evil. It is like taking duplicate medicine which are
non-poisonous (like a sweet made to look as a tablet), they
make man feel that something is been done about the
problem but in reality nothing is happening towards
removing the problem, so the problem slowly aggravates.
In the Old Testament festivals and certain communal
activities which later became known as tradition were
instructed so as to teach and testify to the children about God
and history of man’s relationship walk with the
In the New Testament the Early Church did not give great
importance to traditions on the contrary they did
away with most of them. Paul who was a vessel of the Lord to
witness to the kings, gentiles and children of Israel
(those who are growing in the Lord) did speak of
tradition only because his audiences were of that category.
Paul in short was commissioned by the Lord to be a junior
school head master and diplomat between worldly
rulers and people who did not know God. This is the reason
Paul's writings do not go deep into study of the Word or of
the Kingdom of God, although he does talk of being
aware of them.
When Jesus resurrected He entered closed rooms without
coming through the door, He also appeared at
different places without physical moving between places. But what
we see is when He resurrected the tombstone covering the
entrance was moved aside. Was it necessary to move
the tombstone? Jesus could have resurrected and come out of
the tomb without moving the tombstone.
The tombstone symbolizes tradition and this is confirmed in
today's message. We see Daniel was put in a tomb and
a huge bolder like tombstone covered its entrance, even
after that the entrance had soldiers guarding it, yet we see the
king putting his seal on the tombstone. Not only does the
king put his seal but the nobles also put their seals
on the tombstone; these seals represented their approvals.
Traditions are followed by people mainly for getting
approval of what they are doing from the elders or
seniors in the faith. Stop any tradition and the person
fears backlash from the elders and heads of the church.
Tradition in short kills a growing spirit and thus
does not let a person experience the risen Lord.
As a child following traditions is okay but as one grows in
spirit it is better to overcome traditions and dwell
in relationship with God. Since we live among people who
do not know God the festivals we celebrate do the job of
reminding us and testifying unto others of what the
Lord has done.
Most of the churches are spiritual dwarfs because they give
traditions more importance than the purpose they are
Like Steve Ray the Catholic evangelist stated the Catholic
church stands on 3 legs, one being the Word, second
tradition and the third church authority. I will not
comment about the other two legs, but because tradition is
an important leg on what they stand on is the reason
we see the church full of only spiritual babies.
Grow in Spirit and move the tombstone of tradition from
your life and experience the Risen Lord in your life.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are God of the Living and not the dead. You are
Spirit and You desire your children even though made
in the flesh to be led by spirit. Lord, we pray all the
spiritual babies that You intervene in their lives and move
the tombstone from their lives so that they
experience a spiritual revival...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Matthew 27:58-66; 28:1-8
58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it
in a clean linen cloth,
60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had
hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of
the sepulchre, and departed.
61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary,
sitting over against the sepulchre.
62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the
preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together
unto Pilate,
63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said,
while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure
until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and
steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from
the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the
65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go your
way, make it as sure as ye can.
66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure,
sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn
toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the
other Mary to see the sepulchre.
2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the
angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and
rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
3 His countenance was like lightning, and his
raiment white as snow:
4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and
became as dead men.
5 And the angel answered and said unto the women,
Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was

see the place where the Lord lay.
7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is
risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into
Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.
8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with
fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
John 20:19
19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day
of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were
assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the
midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

promised, that ye shall keep this service.

shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?

were of Jerusalem, saying,

the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

Sin redefined
John 3:20 - For every one that doeth evil hateth the
light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should
be reproved.
In the Old Testament we read many Commandments were given
to the people but in the New Testament Jesus sums up
all in 2 Commandments. Did Jesus change the Commandments?
In the Old Testament we see the people were void of the
Spirit of God and the Spirit of God was only on a
select few and that too many times not always but only during
a mission. It was only after Jesus made peace between God
and man by His sacrifice that the Holy Spirit was
promised to all those who believe in Jesus Christ.
Since sin in basic did not change, the Commandments of God
too did not change; it was only that in the Old
Testament they were not understood. The people void of
understanding followed them in the flesh and not in the
spirit. Jesus kept every Commandment of the Old
Testament but yet was accused of breaking them by the
Pharisees (Jewish church leaders).
Sin is defined by disobedience to God so it was the Law
that gave birth to sin. Had God not commanded Adam and
Eve not to eat of tree of Good and Bad they would not have
sinned. Before sin came into existence was evil, it
was the Commandment of God that exposed evil in the
form of sin. Before sin, evil was difficult to understand
by a person not knowing God well. So to understand sin well
we need to know evil and to understand evil well we
need to know God Who is light.
Although Satan(s) and his angels did evil yet it is not
written that they sinned. They did not have a
Commandment since they knew God well and knew what was good in
the eyes of God, the nature of God. Doing anything
that is against the nature of God is evil. Therefore Jesus
simplified this to ordinary man without Spirit of God
into 2 Commandments wherein both talk about the most
manifested nature of God for those who do not know God and that
is love (charity).
To know God one should firstly know love (charity) for
without love (charity) one cannot know God. But
everything about God does not stop at love (charity) for God has
11 more properties (fruit) about Him which are enclosed
within love (charity). It was this love (charity)
manifested in the sacrifice of His begotten Son Jesus
Christ that we receive the Spirit of Truth neither for a
moment, nor for a few people alone, but for all those
who are touched by this love (charity). It is only by the
Spirit of Truth that we come to know God better; we also
come to know what is not good according to God and
therefore by our knowing more Light the definition of evil
keeps changing for us.
Thus as we come closer to God and know more and more of God
- the Light - Spirit of God (Law giver) within us
exposes more of the evil that already exist. People who are
afraid to face the truth of bringing change into their
lives land up running away from knowing God Who is

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, although man walked in the Garden of Eden along with
the Angels yet man did not know You well because man
was made lower than the Angels. You tested man by putting
the tree of Good and Bad and Satan made sure man failed
this test thus bringing sin into man and evil into
the hearts of man. Evil and sin covered and took man even
more further from You. Your out stretched hand of love (charity)
which was manifested through Jesus Christ brings us closer
to You, to know You better. Lord, give us courage to
hold on to your Light so as we come to know You better, to
let the darkness within us to be exposed and be removed by
your Light. You gave us authority over fallen spirits
and over weaknesses, help us to understand and
believe in this authority...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Jeremiah 31:33-34
33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make
with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I
will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in
their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall
be my people.
34 And they shall teach no more every man his
neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for
they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the
greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive
their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
Zechariah 7:11-12
11 But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the
shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear.
12 Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone,
lest they should hear the law, and the words which the LORD
of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets:
therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts.
Romans 2:12-15
12 For as many as have sinned [erred] without law
shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in
the law shall be judged by the law;
13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before
God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do
by nature the things contained in the law, these, having
not the law, are a law unto themselves:
15 Which shew the work of the law written in their
hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their
thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one
Romans 3:19-20
19 Now we know that what things soever the law
saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth
may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before
20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no
flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the
knowledge of sin.

Why Thou makest men as the fishes of the sea?
Habakkuk 1:15 - They take up all of them with the angle
[hook], they catch them in their net, and gather them in
their drag: therefore they rejoice and are glad.
As we read in our previous message the Aramaic language
came through the following people/kingdoms - Aram,
Chaldean, Assyria and Babylon before it was used by the
The words Aram means 'exalted', Chaldean means 'cod
breakers' (symbolizes people of the occult), Assyria means
'steps' (symbolizes progress or prosperity) and Babylon
means 'confusion'.
As we know from Babylon came all the various so called
religions. The tower of Babylon was like a temple
which held all the various gods that are worshiped in
different forms in all the various religions across the
The root of Babylon came when people wanted to exalt not
God but themselves, to avoid acknowledging the true
God they started believing in supernatural things and so
found / made for themselves gods. They wanted to progress
and prosper and this blinded their eyes and bought
them to confusion. To a person with spiritual discernment
this will be just plain foolishness but to them reality.
Thus Babylon means all religions of this world
including its head (mother) the church of Tryus which
is built on the beast.
If we look at the CROSS (not crucifix but what He did) of
Jesus, It is just the opposite of Babylon. The CROSS
of Jesus tells us not to exalt ourselves but to humble and
to exalt only the Father. It demonstrates the power of God and
acknowledges Him alone as Almighty. It also tells us to
overcome this world and overcome our desires of this
world. It says man does not live by bread alone, so more
than things of this world we should pursue Heavenly things.
Lastly by the CROSS of Jesus we receive the Spirit of
Truth, Who becomes our Rock and foundation. The Holy
Spirit is not a spirit of confusion but of order.
In today's message we read Habakkuk in spirit is asking the
Lord why He allows Babylon / Chaldeans to destroy the
people of this world. She throws her net and traps the
people like fishes trapped in a net. She lays bait on hooks
to catch people like fishes (i.e. Steve Ray's main
business is 'Holy Land' tours and thus makes people
believe in things contrary to the Word; little do people know
that almost 70percent of the Jerusalem during the
time of Jesus is 6 to 12 feet below ground; time and
again there were destructions and constructions or
Jerusalem, therefore Archeologists have numbered Jerusalem
according to layers).
In chapter 2 the Lord answers Habakkuk and the same was
also told to Mary by the Man of God Simeon at the
temple when she went to circumcise Jesus of 8 days and also
offer a sacrifice for her own purification (2 turtledoves /
Simeon foretold her that after her death (soul) her name
will be misused to mislead many people and the Lord
is going to allow this so as to expose their hearts. This
is also the reason that her name was Mary which means
It is only because of the hardness of the hearts of people
that they turn away from God. Sometimes even the
sheep are misled by this lot and therefore God needs to
create situations by which the internal hardness of His
sheep is broken and they turn to Him.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are God and your wisdom is beyond understanding
of man. It is only by your Spirit and your Word and
that You reveal your plans. When You created this creation
You already wrote its history. You gave man his salvation
as a choice so that the Truth and Righteousness lives
and your Holiness remain shining forever. You are Light and
the darkness has no place before You. Lord, help your people to
break the hardness of their hearts. Do as You will with us
but do not let go of us...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Habakkuk 1:12-17
12 Are you not from everlasting, O LORD my God, my
Holy One? we shall not die. O LORD, you have ordained them for
judgment; and, O mighty God, you have established them for
13 You are of purer eyes than to behold evil, and
can not look on iniquity: why look you on them that deal
treacherously, and hold your tongue when the wicked devours
the man that is more righteous than he?
14 And make men as the fishes of the sea, as the
creeping things, that have no ruler over them?
15 They take up all of them with the angle, they
catch them in their net, and gather them in their drag: therefore
they rejoice and are glad.
16 Therefore they sacrifice to their net, and burn
incense to their drag; because by them their portion is fat,
and their meat plenteous.
17 Shall they therefore empty their net, and not
spare continually to slay the nations?
Luke 2:21-35
21 And when eight days were fulfilled for
circumcising him, his name was called JESUS, which was so called
by the angel before he was conceived in the womb.
22 And when the days of their purification according
to the law of Moses were fulfilled, they brought him up to
Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord
23 (as it is written in the law of the Lord, Every
male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the
24 and to offer a sacrifice according to that which
is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or
two young pigeons.
25 And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose
name was Simeon; and this man was righteous and devout,
looking for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Spirit
was upon him.
26 And it had been revealed unto him by the Holy
Spirit, that he should not see death, before he had seen the
Lord’s Christ.
27 And he came in the Spirit into the temple: and
when the parents brought in the child Jesus, that they might
do concerning him after the custom of the law,
28 then he received him into his arms, and blessed
God, and said,
29 Now lettest thou thy servant depart, Lord,
According to thy word, in peace;
30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all
32 A light for revelation to the Gentiles, And the
glory of thy people Israel.
33 And his father and his mother were marvelling at
the things which were spoken concerning him;
34 and Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his
mother, Behold, this child is set for the falling and the
rising of many in Israel; and for a sign which is spoken
35 yea and a sword shall pierce through thine own
soul; that thoughts out of many hearts may be revealed.

added to the scripture for readability have been
When God created the world (creation), the first two days
when God separated light from darkness and made 'Day'
and 'Night', on those days God did not say it is 'good' (He
did say the light was good) unlike the 4 other consecutive
days He said good.
This topic on creation is one of the biggest debates
between Christians for many think these days are
human days of 24 hrs. No doubt the Hebrew word translated here as
day is the same what we use for human day but since it was
not, that’s the reason God did not say it was
good on the first 2 days. It was one of the worst things
God had to do on those days.
The Hebrew word 'yowm' used as day also means whole and the
word 'layil' translated as night comes from the word
'luwl' which means winding stair - symbolizing a staircase
going down.
These days is not a human day but God's days or Heavenly
days (since the physical world was yet not created)
when God separated the Heavens, the rebelling angels were
removed from higher Heavens and the lower Heavens were made
for them. The Spirit of God hovered over the water
not waters (since this noun is singular and male,
creation has the gender female; mankind is symbolized not as
waters but as sea). The Angels of God are light and are
good and the revolting angels were not yet the
separating process God did not find good since the Heavenly
Temple was damaged (the Angels are part of the Body of God
the Son and God the Son is part of the Body of the
God Head).
Another day to note is the sixth day when God created man.
The previous 4 days everything God created, God said
it as good but when God created man He did not say man as
good but said everything He created as good.
Like the Hebrew word 'barak' translated mostly as bless
does not mean only good things for this word is also
translated as curse is some places in the Bible. Understand to
bless is like giving a present, but a present is good or
bad depends on its contents.
Mankind was never good for in man were both children of God
and children of Satan; it was only by the sacrifice
of Jesus and the Spirit of God that the children of God are
made whole and into day/light.
No man before the sacrifice of Jesus was found good, that
is the reason why Jesus reacted quite harshly to the
young rich man when he called Jesus good. Jesus then
exposed the un-goodness in this man when He a put a
stumbling block to him by giving him a choice between
worldly riches and God.
Every one of us are unworthy to be called good but are made
good only in Christ. We wait for the day (time) after
judgment day when this creation is no more and there is no
more sea (symbolizing generations of good and bad), no more
death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall
there be any more pain. All that is bad will be
discarded into the lake of sulphure - symbolizing the second
Hell of terrible punishment unlike the first which was a
prison for unbelievers and suffering was according to
one’s wrong doing (worms), in this Hell only
believers who fail Judgment, along with Satan (both dragon
and the beast) and the Anti-Christ would be put.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You created man with purpose. You wanted the best and
most perfect to be part of the New Temple since the
previous was damaged by darkness. Lord, You knew that it
would be impossible for man alone to overcome darkness so
You humbled Yourself and came as man to be sacrifice
and make the impossible possible. Lord, we know in You
we have already received our victory for You do not fail and have
completed it all. Keep us Lord in You so that we too are
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

Talitha cumi

Mark 5:41 - And he took the damsel by the hand, and said
unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted,
Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.

When I got the scripture for today's message at first I
thought the Lord wanted me to write on the authority that
Jesus had when He commanded the dead child to get up. But as I
looked close the Lord led me to write on the words 'Talitha
cumi' which are Aramaic words meaning 'young girl
arise' which even today in translations of various are yet
written in Aramaic.

Aramaic has its origin from the Aramaeans of Aram in
the 12th Century BC. This language was promoted by the
Assyrians who made it their official language. Later this
language was the official language of the Babylonians
(King Darius) and thus became a language also of the
Israelites since they were under the rule of Babylonians. When
Daniel wrote his book half of his book is in Aramaic and
half in Hebrew. One may assume the second half may be
Aramaic and the first half in Hebrew, but contrary it is
the opposite, the first half is in Aramaic and second half
in Hebrew.

Is today message about the history of the Aramaic
language? No.

What I want you to understand the wisdom of God in using
the languages to bring His Word to His people.

If one reads into the explanations of the prophecies
written in Daniel before chapter 8 which was written in
Aramaic was for the lost Israelites and spoke more of
earthly things but chapter 8 onwards was more of
spiritual things. For example the kings or kingdoms of
chapters 2-7 were of earthly kind but the king of chapter 8
(little horn) was a unique king who had a spiritual

This too can be seen in text of the Old Testament, for most
of the Old Testament is written in Hebrew except the
following text is written in Aramaic.

Aramaic is found in four discrete sections of the Old
1) Ezra 4:8-6:18 and 7:12-26 - documents from the
Achaemenid period (5th century BCE) concerning the
restoration of the temple in Jerusalem.
2) Daniel 2:4b-7:28 - five subversive tales and an
apocalyptic vision.
3) Jeremiah 10:11 - a single sentence in the middle of a
Hebrew text denouncing idolatry.
4) Genesis 31:47 - translation of a Hebrew place-name.

The Qumran text also known as the Dead Sea scrolls
were manuscripts found in caves on the banks of the Dead
Sea which held among other text also the whole of the Old
Testament with all 38 of the 39 books with only the
book of Esther missing. These books were all translated
into Aramaic over a period of more than 400years. It had nearly 3
generations of translating systems of the Hebrew to Aramaic

Coming to the New Testament during the times of Jesus,
during this time 3 languages were spoken by the Israelites
(Jews) - Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek (which was official language
of the Romans).

In the New Testament some parts of the book was originally
written in Aramaic and was later translated into Greek.
These were done during the early Apostolic Church, but what
we see is that some of the text like in today's
message was not translated but kept as it were in the
language Jesus spoke to the common man.

During Jesus' time Hebrew was the Church language, Aramaic
was the common people's language and Greek the language
spoken by the officials.

Today's Bibles translations are founded from the
manuscripts which includes these 3 languages. The Apostles
in the wisdom of the Lord found the need to have the
Aramaic text translated to Greek for Greek was the
language of officials.

The Bible takes us in spirit according to the
languages it is written. The promise of the Church (Hebrew)
given to the common man (Aramaic) to have authority and
become sons of God (Greek).

Like in today's message Jesus spoke to the dead body
of the little girl to get up, so also the Lord is speaking
to the Church of today which is lost in worldly things to
come alive in Him, to have authority in Him and
become sons.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You love your people very much. You want them
to come to You to eternally dwell with You. But since
Heaven is only for sons, You are speaking to your people to
wake up and have authority in You so that they
overcome and your glory in seen in them when your image
gets manifested among your people. Lord we pray your people
realize who they are in You and stop running or turn
their face from darkness, the things that are not from
your Kingdom and are destroying your people, that they take them
head on and expel them like light expels darkness...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
John 1:10-13
10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and
the world knew him not.
11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to
become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his
13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the
flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Romans 8:19-22
19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for
the manifestation of the sons of God.
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.

Galatians 4:4-7
4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent
forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might
receive the adoption of sons.
6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit
of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if
a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega,
the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that
is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.

be his God, and he shall be my son.

Where is grain and wine?

Lamentations 2:12-14
12 They say to their mothers, Where is grain and
wine? When they swoon as the wounded in the streets of the city,
When their soul is poured out into their mothers' bosom.
13 What shall I testify unto thee? what shall I
liken to thee, O daughter of Jerusalem? What shall I compare to
thee, that I may comfort thee, O virgin daughter of Zion?
For thy breach is great like the sea: who can
heal thee?
14 Thy prophets have seen for thee false and
foolish visions; And they have not uncovered thine iniquity, to
bring back thy captivity, But have seen for thee false
oracles and causes of banishment.

We all know the turmoil that is happening around the world,
one of them includes the high price of food. This
will magnify further then much greater disasters will start
- deaths.

We also know the problems that are happening in the Middle
East countries and they are just the beginning of the
problems. Just today I got a message from the Lord of
another country having nuclear arsenals will also go into
great public protest like is happening in Egypt.
These happenings are not good news to Christians and of
great concern to them.

Is this the work of Satan? No.
It is the anger of the Lord against His church and His
people, especially the leaders who are causing these

In most of the Churches today we do not see the leaders
giving fresh Manna. They are passing the old Manna
again and again and these are causing worms among people. A
person with 2 grains of fresh Manna is made a hero and he goes on
world tours to all various churches. These tours soon stop
his receiving even these few grains. He starts to
think which of his previous teachings will impress the
people. Even if he asks the Lord for a Word, he does not ask the
Lord for a new revelation of the Word.

It is not that leaders are not praying or spending time
with the world but the problem lies with the walls of
restrictions which their fore fathers have created that
have stops the fresh Manna. Like the Jews pray at the
Wailing Wall, so also is the spiritual status of our
leaders. The Jews tie a rope round their hands when they do
this and our leaders tie themselves with rules of their
seniors. The leaders love to talk sweet things to the
people and have mastered the art with their tongue since
the people like to hear only sweet things.

Go to a Church, stand on the stage and dare rebuke the
people; soon the leaders will make sure you do not
preach anywhere else also.

All want prosperity gospel not spiritual prosperity but
worldly prosperity. Go to a church and what
testimonies do you hear? How the Lord blessed them with a better
job? How they got an increment? The only neutral testimony
we hear is of people getting healed. But they never
try to understand or learn why they had the problem in
the first place and what they have been doing to overcome this
area of concern.

People wholly and solely depend on the mercy of the Lord,
but the Lord did not say my mercy will bring us to
Him, He said my Spirit will build us and bring us to Him.

We need to walk in the Spirit and build a day to day
relation with the Spirit of the Lord. It is the
Spirit of the Lord Who gives us fresh Manna and anointing. Man
does not live on just worldly bread but needs spiritual
bread (Manna) and spiritual wine (anointing)

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, We look unto your Holy Mountains from where comes our
bread and wine. Lord, we pray for all our church
leaders that they break the bondages of their pre-setters.
That they start walking in Spirit and molding the Church
according to the Rock of its foundation.. .

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Lamentations 2:12-22
12 They say to their mothers, Where is corn and
wine? when they swooned as the wounded in the streets of the
city, when their soul was poured out into their
mothers' bosom.
13 What thing shall I take to witness for thee? what
thing shall I liken to thee, O daughter of Jerusalem? what
shall I equal to thee, that I may comfort thee, O virgin
daughter of Zion? for thy breach is great like the
sea: who can heal thee?
14 Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things
for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity, to
turn away thy captivity; but have seen for thee false
burdens and causes of banishment.
15 All that pass by clap their hands at thee; they
hiss and wag their head at the daughter of Jerusalem, saying,
Is this the city that men call The perfection of beauty,
The joy of the whole earth?
16 All thine enemies have opened their mouth against
thee: they hiss and gnash the teeth: they say, We have
swallowed her up: certainly this is the day that we looked
for; we have found, we have seen it.
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
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. --

R.D SOUZA Saved by faith  - Page 38 Empty Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Tue 01 Feb 2011, 11:05 am

Judged according to what is given
2 Kings 15:1 - In the twenty and seventh year of Jeroboam
king of Israel began Azariah son of Amaziah king of Judah
to reign.
In today's message we read about King Azariah who became
king of Judah at a very early age of 16years. Even at
that age he held on his shoulders the responsibility of
being a good king and what is important was that he kept
the Commandments.
We would say Oh what a good example, but we read that the
Lord struck him with leprosy. Now, one would ask
there were other kings who did not keep the commandments, they
were instruments in killing the Men of God and also abusing
His sanctuary, why pick on Him.
The scriptures say he did 'according to all that his father
Amaziah had done; save that the high places were
not removed: the people sacrificed and burnt incense
still on the high places'. Azariah was aware that these
places of worship were abomination to the Lord.
Knowing this, he let it continue for he did not want to
displease the people who were involved with it.
Compare this with King Jeroboam the king of Israel who also
ruled around the same time and it is written about
him that 'he did evil in the sight of the Lord', it is
also written he even made other Israelites too, to sin, yet we do
not read Jeroboam being struck with leprosy. Is God unjust?
If you read about Jeroboam, it is written although he was a
great sinner, he fulfilled God’s Word and so
did His will.
What is more interesting is that it is written both 'slept
with their fathers'. This line does not mean that
they were just buried with their fathers but means they
slept in the bosom of Abraham which means they did not go to
Although both were saved from Hell yet one who was good
suffered a lot and one who was considered evil did
not, what was different between them was them doing God’s
Azariah knew that God wanted him to bring down the high
places because he had a relationship with the Lord,
but to please the people he did not bring down the high
places. God in his personal had also to be witnessed in his
public life. He identified himself as a godly man but
his compromising on the high places certified them as being
okay, which angered the Lord more than what he pleased God by his
personal life.
This is the reason why many preachers, pastors, priest, Men
of God and people of God who become representatives
of the Lord but by their actions deny God's and show Him in
a poor light land up suffering. In their personal lives
they may be good people, never hurting anyone, always
soft words, going out of their way, but because somewhere
in their lives they compromise God by pleasing people more than
God, they land up in great problems.
No doubt Azariah was saved from Hell because of his
personal life relationship with the Lord but in his
earthly life he suffered and paid a heavy price for wrongly
witnessing God to His people. On Judgment Day when both
Azariah and Jeroboam wakeup in the Lord, both will be
judged based on all parameters which only the Son and
Spirit know.
Let us learn from today's message and also concentrate on
what our actions speak about the Lord to the people,
how they show our God is.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, You are Holy and Righteous God and You ask your
people also be holy and righteous. Lord, You know
that it is not possible for man to be holy and righteous, but
being in You and under the shadow of thy wings, we can
cover ourselves with your holiness and righteousness.
Help us Lord to understand when we tell people we are
Christian, we are telling them who Christ and who our God is by
our way of life, our decisions, our actions, our behavior
and all that we do. Open the areas which need change
and strengthen us in the areas which we are weak in...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
2 Kings 5:1-7
1 In the twenty and seventh year of Jeroboam king of
Israel began Azariah son of Amaziah king of Judah to reign.
2 Sixteen years old was he when he began to reign,
and he reigned two and fifty years in Jerusalem. And his
mother’s name was Jecholiah of Jerusalem.
3 And he did that which was right in the sight of
the LORD, according to all that his father Amaziah had done;
4 Save that the high places were not removed: the
people sacrificed and burnt incense still on the high places.
5 And the LORD smote the king, so that he was a
leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house.
And Jotham the king's son was over the house, judging
the people of the land.
6 And the rest of the acts of Azariah, and all that
he did, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of
the kings of Judah?
7 So Azariah slept with his fathers; and they buried
him with his fathers in the city of David: and Jotham his
son reigned in his stead.
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.

Post  Admin on Mon 31 Jan 2011, 11:29 pm

Dull-hearted and foolish lot

Jeremiah 10:8 - But they are altogether dull-hearted and
foolish; A wooden idol is a worthless doctrine.

Today as I sat to write my daily devotion I was hoping I
would get messages like I did 1 year before basically
to build the elements of faith, love, peace etc. the fruits
of the Holy Spirit. But yet again I receive this message
today. I do not hold anything against the Lord for
putting me in such a tight and uncomfortable position. He
is saying enough is enough of the sweet talks for there are
countless numbers of people who do that. It is time to open
the eyes of His children for He cannot wait for the
day to have them back Home.

Yesterday I attended the session of Steve Ray (Stephen
Ray), out of the full session there was one teaching
which I really loved where he explained the real meaning of
'believing', for that I give him a star. There were 3 other
statements which he made, which were true and
surprised me coming from a mouth of a Catholic official
representative on a stage, since their church officially does not
state them, full marks for that. But there were totally 35
teachings which I noted down wherein he was bluntly
deceiving and lying all for his own personal gains, which I
could see through and through and it came out from
his own mouth. This too was exposed only because the day
before the session I started binding and rebuking the
deceiving spirit.

The hall in which the session was held is the biggest hall
in Mumbai and was almost full to capacity. I had
taken along a Word rooted sister who also like me came out
of the Catholic church. The Lord had told me to hold my
temper and since it was an area I was weak before I
took her along so that she holds me back. Through half
of the session even she could not bear to stand the mocking he
was doing on the stage of people of God, of holy
things and of the Holy Spirit. But after lunch she
pleaded me to let her go for she was getting a headache
hearing this man.

I had never heard this person before nor knew much of him;
my only knowledge of him was a small write-up in the
newspaper and yet my heart burned to take him down. It was
only when I attended that I understood why the Lord let
such a feeling in me.

To the Catholic audience there it was just pleasure to hear
him since I would say not even a point fraction of
people really knew the Bible. All the blunt lies which even a
person of commonsense would figure out was applauded and
cheered by the audience.

For example the reason he gave that the church kept idols
was in the olden days since the Bible was not
available to all and people were uneducated (in that dialect)
so idols were the best way to teach people. They were put
not to worship them but to tell the stories and
characters of the Bible. Today the church has their own
translations in various languages so I do not understand why the
idols continue? Why he need the idols in his own house if
he claims to be knowledgeable of the Word? If they
were to teach the Bible they should be made with the
various elements of the stories. Like Noah and an ark, David with
a sling, Peter crucified upside down etc. but what we see
is mostly just various persons in standing postures
and that too most of the statues are not Biblical
characters but people they claim as saints. There are more
than 3 times the statues of Mary than of Jesus. They
claim this is statue is of Mary as if someone had taken a
photograph of her when she was alive (although statues of Jesus
could be debated on).

Another things was if they were teaching purposes only then
why are they venerated, offered flowers and candles
etc. why leave the stain glass images or the painting on
the ceilings and not venerate them too?

I am I could have easily taken this guy down by confronting
him at that place but what would been the result,
like the Lord says the people who were attending were
dull-hearted and a foolish lot and since they were stiff
necked and do not want to change they just love such
understandings. Ironically the punch line of the event was
'still lovin it'.

People are not aware that there are many learned persons
like William Webster and James White, who have
confronted the understandings of this person Steve Ray and these
debates are available on the internet. They are not
disclosed to the Catholics. In Mumbai I heard a
person had downloaded a few documents and making Xeroxes of
them was distributing them at one such session of Steve
Ray. His goons got hold of this young man and
confiscated his papers. If they are speaking the Truth why
were they afraid to let the people know of such debates,
why hide them?

When I was a Catholic I did not have any Believer come to
me and preach me any doctrine to get me out of that
institute. It was only after I surrendered to the Lord and
started reading the Bible that the Lord started teaching me
and exposed the depth of the deceit, which even the
Believers may not be aware of.

As instructed by the Lord I will make a note of each of his
points answer them and publish them for the people to
read and decide.

Heaven is not place for fools and dull-hearted people so
wake up and open your eyes to the deceit of the
beast. No doubt the Catholic church is fully soaked in it,
but to some level this deceit still continues in many of
the Believer Churches, since they continued many of
the practices and understandings of this institute.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, we pray for your sheep who are still trapped by the
deceit of the evil one. We rebuke and bind the powers
which hold them down. We break their chains in the Name of
Jesus. We case away the yoke of traditions put around their
neck, the dew of your grace coverth them and we claim
them into your sheepfold...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Exodus 20:4-6
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or
any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that
is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve
them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the
iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third
and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love
me, and keep my commandments.

The fulfillment of the Word against the church of Tyrus

Daniel 11:34-39
33 And they that understand among the people
shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by
flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be
holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with
35 And some of them of understanding shall fall,
to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the
time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.
36 And the king shall do according to his will;
and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god,
and shall speak marvellous things against the God of
gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be
accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.
37 Neither shall he regard the God of his
fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he
shall magnify himself above all.
38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of
forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with
gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant
39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds
with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with
glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and
shall divide the land for gain.

Since a few days my heart has been burning like
David’s heart burnt when he heard Goliath speak
against his God and against God's people. In India especially in
Mumbai the Catholic Church has called a champion from their
faith who claims to have been Believer before (but
could not find a good Church!) so went to a Catholic Church
and now goes about preaching it as the true Church.

I have been wanting since a few days to go and meet this
man and ask him to name me even 5 things good about
the traditions or beliefs this church, for everything about
it is infected with deceit and mischief. I do not want to
encounter him in the public at his 2 days workshop
which I decided to attend tomorrow but wanted to meet him
in private.

The Lord gave me a Word yesterday through a sister -
Proverbs 16:32 'He that is slow to anger is
better than the mighty (warrior); And he that ruleth his spirit,
than he that taketh a city'. So I have been reconsidering
to confront him in public to deal like David did with
Goliath and get him in private like Jesus did with Saul.
Personally I too prefer the second one as the Lord advised and
ask you also to pray it happens. Whatever we do
should glorify God and not to prove ourselves right
or glorify ourselves.

Just now a few minutes before I got today's message from
the Lord I received a message from a Catholic brother
who sent me an invitation to attend Steve Ray's workshop.
In his mail some of the points he wrote as to why this
church is the Church of God, is because it survived
2000 years. What he says is true that God's hand is there
in the survival of this church since many years and this
was explained through Daniel as to why God allowed
this to happen.

It is written that the people who had insight of the Truth
were allowed to be crushed by this church so that in
due time a refined lot will arise. The ruler(s) of this
church (Popes-who held a kingly title for many years) were
and are allowed to blasphemy God and mislead the hard
in hearts to a foreign god.

Since 1600AD as written in scriptures God has been started
slowly to refine His people and the time is at hand
that soon He will sink the ships (commerce) of this church
which would be like piercing the belly of the crocodile

Almost 15 to 20 percent of the Bible talks about this
church of Tyrus in Hebrew and in Greek Peter and how
the piercing serpent (dragon) and the crooked serpent
(beast) deceive people using the name of Christ.

The founders of the Methodist Church, Pentecostal Church,
Lutheran Church etc. wrote and preached about this
deceit but later the people with the misunderstanding of rapture
chose to ignore this danger thinking that they will not be
effected by it. If God gave so much importance in His
instructions Book to warn us, we need to take note of it
and not ignore.

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, since long the blood of your saints has been crying
for revenge. In your wisdom You allowed your people
to be tempted by the leviathan so that only the sheep will
hear your voice and come to You, that they will grow Fruit
and enter into their eternal home. Lord, we pray you
guide your elected ones in this season according to
your Word so that your true glorious Church be seen among your

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

Revelations 12:1-6
1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a
woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon
her head a crown of twelve stars:
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in
birth, and pained to be delivered.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and
behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns,
and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of
heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood
before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to
devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule
all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up
unto God, and to his throne.
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she
hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there
a thousand two hundred and threescore days [it was exactly
after 1260 years from the Pope was crowned King that
the real Church started coming back - the protestant

Daniel 7:7-9
7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold
a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong
exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and
brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the
feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that
were before it; and it had ten horns.
8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up
among them another little horn, before whom there were
three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and,
behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man,
and a mouth speaking great things.
9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the
Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and
the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was
like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.

Daniel 8:8-14
8 Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when
he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up
four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.
9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn,
which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward
the east, and toward the pleasant land.
10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven;
and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the
ground, and stamped upon them.
11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of
the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and
the place of his sanctuary was cast down.
12 And an host was given him against the daily
sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth
to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.
13 Then I heard one saint speaking, and another
saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be
the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the
transgression of desolation, to give both the
sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three
hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.

Ezekiel 28:1-10
1 The word of Jehovah came again unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyre, Thus
saith the Lord Jehovah: Because thy heart is lifted up, and thou
hast said, I am a god, I sit in the seat of God, in the
midst of the seas; yet thou art man, and not God,
though thou didst set thy heart as the heart of God; -
3 behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no
secret that is hidden from thee;
4 by thy wisdom and by thine understanding thou hast
gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy
5 by thy great wisdom and by thy traffic hast thou
increased thy riches, and thy heart is lifted up because of
thy riches; -
6 therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah: Because
thou hast set thy heart as the heart of God,
7 therefore, behold, I will bring strangers upon
thee, the terrible of the nations; and they shall draw their
swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall
defile thy brightness.
8 They shall bring thee down to the pit; and thou
shalt die the death of them that are slain, in the heart of
the seas.
9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I
am God? but thou art man, and not God, in the hand of him
that woundeth thee.
10 Thou shalt die the death of the uncircumcised by
the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord

R.D SOUZA Saved by faith  - Page 38 Empty Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Thu 27 Jan 2011, 2:25 pm

Peace be with you
Luke 10:5,6 - And into whatsoever house ye enter, first
say, Peace be to this house. And if the son of peace be
there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall
turn to you again.
There are many words as Christians we speak during
fellowship which we do not realize the depth and
value of these words. In today’s message the Lord is bring
our attention to the words 'Peace be with you' or
'Peace be in this house'. These words were given unto
the disciples as part of their apprenticeship training when
they went to minister on their own.
If we give attention to the instructions, they were told to
speak the words 'Peace be to this house', but that
peace would only remain on that house if there was a son of
peace abiding in it. If there was no son of peace abiding
in it then that peace which they spoke would return
To a lay man peace is a feeling which comes into existence
when there is no strive. How can one give peace and
why would a son of peace need peace?
Firstly we need to understand that Lord Jesus Christ is not
called the King of Peace but is referred to as Prince
of Peace. That makes us conclude that it is His Father who
is the King of Peace. Since we do not know God the Father
in Heaven, the Holy Spirit Whom He also refers to as
Father is the King of Peace and also called the Comforter.
It is both the Holy Spirit and God the Son, the outstretched
hands of God who are involved in the salvation of
Sin caused strife between God and man and this strife took
away the peace of man. A man may feel good by many
ways but peace is only available when this relationship between
God and man is healed.
The Holy Spirit the King of Peace is the out stretched hand
of God to repair this relationship between God and
man, but unless one does not invite the Prince of Peace the
King will not abide with that house or person. It is only
when a person believes in the Prince of Peace, he is
called a son of peace and he becomes an instrument to
bring the Peace via the King of Peace into the house.
This instruction was also given in the words of Paul and
Silas when they said the way to salvation is
confessing 'Jesus Christ is Lord'. Salvation is in simple terms
is making of peace between God and man, the bringing
of man back to God.
Like Peace even blessings can only be received when one
opens the door, if the door of believe is shut your
blessings will return back to you. If Peace or blessings does not
return to you it does not mean your peace or blessing
reduce. The mathematics of the Kingdom of God is
unlike that on earth, the more you give, more (means
multiples of it) will be given unto you.
There are millions of ways we can make ourselves feel good
but this feeling is temporary and will not last long.
The only way to have peace in our lives is Jesus Christ, we
need to first believe in the Prince of Peace and have Him
in us. It is only through Him that Peace can stay in
and among us.
A Believer may say I believe in Jesus but still I have
unrest in some areas of my life.
Like a house has many room so also does our life. If we
keep Jesus out of that room, how can we expect Peace
to abide there? So let us day by day open all the doors of every
room we find unrest to the Prince of Peace to let total
Peace to abide in us.
[Prayer Starter]
Lord Jesus, You are the Lamb of God, an eternal sacrifice
and bridge of Peace between God and man. By You we
received the Holy Spirit, Who works in us and comforts us to
bring Peace in our lives. Holy Spirit we have been
keeping You away from the various areas and
relationships of our lives and therefore struggling. Coming into
each area and bring eternal Peace into them...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]
Isaiah 9:6
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and
the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his
name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
John 14:15-21
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you
another Comforter, that he may abide with you for
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot
receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth
him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19 Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but
ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and
ye in me, and I in you.
21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it
is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be
loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest
myself to him.
Hebrew 13:20-21
20 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead
our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep,
through the blood of the everlasting covenant,
21 Make you perfect in every good work to do his will,
working in you that which is wellpleasing in his
sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and
ever. Amen.
Zechariah 4:6
6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the
word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by
might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of
Acts 16:28-34
28 But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no
harm: for we are all here.
29 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came
trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,
30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to
be saved?
31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou
shalt be saved, and thy house.
32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all
that were in his house.
33 And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed
their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his,
34 And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat
before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his
