Do not chase a shadow

Psalms 37:9 [NASB] For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait 
upon the LORD, they shall inherit the land.

I normally quote the KJV but today I quoted the NASB since it translated 
the Hebrew word 'erets' as land. This word occurs 2504 times in the 
Bible and in KJV 1543 times it is translated as land and only 712 times 
it is translated as earth.

Today's scripture talks of those who do evil will perish and not exist, 
it goes on to say those who trust in the Lord will inherit the land. 
Does this scripture talk of property or does it talk of some specific 

In the Gospels the word Israel occurs 30 times and in all the 4 Gospels 
Jesus spoke it 9 times (including the repeating of the event across the 
4 Gospels). In these 9 times Jesus more used the term 'sheep of Israel' 
not referring to the animals but referring to it symbolic, not just the 
sheep but also the term Israel. He also does the same with 'sheep of the 
house of Israel', not mentioning to any structure as house or any 
specific earthly family. Paul says we from different parts of the world 
are sons and daughters of Abraham by our faith in Jesus Christ, 
therefore inheritors of His promise (land).

We see most Christians have their eyes fixed to Israel and the Jews. 
Many mega Church Pastors even place the flag of Israel on their tables 
in their offices. The Jews have a blue star as their flag, they call it 
the symbol 'Star of David' but they do not know who the actual Star of 
David is and have rejected the Star but put His symbol as their national 
symbol. It is like stoning a person to death but roaming with his 
picture saying you love him and adore him very much.

The Believer Church has come from the Catholic Church. Are Catholics 
Christians? No, even though they claim to be, even though they hold the 
same book and even though they take the same names.

A Catholic follows a Jesus Christ who is incompetent and needs the help 
of His mother to help us. They believe in a God who is incompetent and 
needs help of man to get the job done. They believe in the Spirit of God 
who is incompetent and needs man to intercede to get the job done. They 
believe in the Bible but not all of it. They believe in Kingdom of God 
but not as written in the Word of God. Their Jesus is as much the Jesus 
of the Bible as Isa of the Quran is. Even their principle deity Mary is 
not Mary the mother of Jesus of the Bible. So if they say they believe 
in Jesus one need to ask them which Jesus? When they say they believe in 
the Word of God one needs to ask them which Word of God? If they say 
they 'honor' Mary one needs to ask them which Mary?

In 15th century AD a few people led by Martin Luther (he gave it a push) 
broke away from the Catholic Church since they realized the Church was 
not following the Word of God. They were called Protestants since they 
protested from the main congregation. Jesus was the greatest Protestant 
of the Jewish Church (which claims to be founded by Abraham). His 
followers were initially called 'Disciples of Jesus Christ', later they 
were 'People of The Way' and later were mockingly referred to 
'Christians' which means little Christs and the last name got stuck. Can 
we say Christians are Jews?

Christians are as much part of the Jewish Church as Believer is of the 
Catholic Church. We have common history but no common ideology or 
theology. Jews refer to the Commandments given in the Torah as Law of 
Moses and we refer it to as Law of the Lord given through Moses. Even 
though the matter may be same but how it is approached is different.

Abraham was promised a land and in many scriptures we see the Lord says 
the land He gave or promised to give to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their 
descendants but in reality none got it right until today. Even during 
the time of David becoming king and having power of cast out the rulers 
of the land marked as Promised Land yet David did not attempt to claim 
it, he in fact had a treaty with the kings of those lands and let them 
rule it.

David was Man of God according to the heart of God; did he fail to 
understand the Promise? Jesus said Abraham saw Him and was pleased. 
Abraham did not sleep on his death in sadness but will gladness for he 
knew what the Lord promised.

This earth and all natural things in it will perish when the Lord 
returns. Understand the world is round and Bible says when He returns 
all living beings (humans) will see Him coming on a cloud. Let me tell 
you the cloud is not a real cloud but symbolizes glory and no point 
anywhere is visible from every part of the globe (even stars are not). 
Man can see not beyond the horizon and the horizon is approximate 30kms.

Heaven is not physically up for the earth is round. When Islam is 
questioned about the position of Paradise, before it was just up since 
for them then the world was flat now that they realized the world is 
round, they have started saying Paradise is located above Mecca and if 
it falls it will fall over Mecca.

Let us not be a foolish lot fighting or believing in some land as 
Promised Land. Let us not chase a shadow or a dog that chases its tail, 
they may catch it but we will not. Let us pursue the real Promised Land 
which is Heaven and the Lord is saying if we wait upon Him we will 
receive our promise.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are Almighty God and Omnipotent God. There is nothing that is 
impossible to You and your hand is not short that what You spoke You are 
unable to bring to past. Lord we pray your people do not chase shadows 
and believe in worldly things. Let them be focused on the greater things 
of your Kingdom, things that do not perish and do not fade away...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Genesis 35:12And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will 
give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land.

Exodus 6:8And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I 
did swear to give it to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; and I will give 
it you for an heritage: I am the LORD.

John 8:56Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and 
was glad.

Luke 21:27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with 
power and great glory.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

16For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the 
voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in 
Christ shall rise first:

17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with 
them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be 
with the Lord.

The unprofitable people

Romans 3:12,13They are all gone out of the way, they are together become 
unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat 
is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the 
poison of asps is under their lips:

Yesterday we were given a message on how the people are immersed in 
distorting of the truth, we were also told as to why this is happening.

In today's message the Lord is continuing on this topic and has given us 
today's scriptures which are quoted by Paul from the books of Psalms and 
Isaiah. Through it the Lord talks to us of how even though Preachers / 
Evangelist are doing things yet they are unprofitable [the actual 
meaning is useless]. The Lord is saying all the activities they do are 
in no way benefiting His people.

The Lord associates three characteristics to the preachers: - their 
mouths are like open sepulchure, their tongues use deceit and lips 
poison of asps.

Sepulchure or grave (as per today) does not kill people but is a place 
where dead people are kept [gathering of dead people].

Satan is equated to a serpent not because snakes are evil. In the Bible 
snake symbolizes 2 things one is deceit (because it moves in a zigzag 
manner) and other is cursed (because it crawls on its belly). Satan is 
the father of deceit therefore shown as a snake, but at the same time 
even Jesus Christ hung on the crucifix was represented as a bronze snake 
on a pole for He became a cursed for us so that who-so-ever lifts his 
eyes unto Him is saved. In today's message the Lord is equating the 
tongues of Preachers to a snake (deceit) because even though they speak 
'good' they do not mean it. Many Preachers perform on stage like an 
actor does his profession.

The poison of a wasp does not kill but immobilizes its prey. The wasp 
then carried this living dead being to its nest and lays eggs in it so 
that when its eggs hatch its little ones will have food. It may sound 
harsh but today many Churches are family businesses which are inherited.

Evangelism has become a social media like Facebook where people need to 
post some activity to be in the social circle. Everything they do they 
use it to gain mileage and fame. Go to evangelical programs and you will 
find mostly the same people attending it again and again and their 
spiritual level is almost same level throughout years.

Jesus mostly worked outside the city limits even though His fame was 
spread throughout the land. He never worked to glorify Himself; all He 
did was to glorify the Father, He waited on the Father to glorify Him in 
His due time.

Today's message may be harsh but let us take it as a correction and 
change our ways. Let us work for the Kingdom of God and not for kingdom 
of man. Let the expansion of the Kingdom of God be not at fraction 
percentage but be in multiplications and this will happen only when we 
selflessly work for His Kingdom.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, we dwell is a time where we see a lot of Christian programs 
happening but where Christ is absent. They are healings and miracles 
happening but hearts are not changing. People are getting converted not 
none are becoming disciples. The pace at which expansion of the Kingdom 
is happening we would need thousands of years more but such is not 
available for the end is written. Lord we pray change happens among the 
leaders so that things quicken. Let them realize if they do not then as 
your Word says You can created people for yourself from stones...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Psalms 14:1-4

1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, 
they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

2The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if 
there were any that did understand, and seek God.

3They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is 
none that doeth good, no, not one.

4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as 
they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.

Isaiah 8:20-22

20To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this 
word, it is because there is no light in them.

21And they shall pass through it, hardly bestead and hungry: and it 
shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret 
themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look upward.

22And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, 
dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.

Psalms 53:2-4

2God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there 
were any that did understand, that did seek God.

3Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; 
there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

4Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they 
eat bread: they have not called upon God.

Before whom do you minister?

Ezekiel 44:12 Because they ministered unto them before their idols, and 
caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity; therefore have I 
lifted up mine hand against them, saith the Lord GOD, and they shall 
bear their iniquity.

Today's scripture the word 'they' does not talk about people who do not 
know God but speaks of people who know God and minister to others in His 
name. Today's scripture says these people minister in the name of the 
Lord but they minister not before God but before their idols, because 
they minister not before God but before their idols, they have caused 
the people of God to fall into iniquity and because they have caused 
people to fall into iniquity, the Lord says His hand will be against 
them and they will bear their iniquity.

At literature level this scripture comes out quite clear. We can go 
further and get into the commentary by studying the historical 
background of this verse and we will know about idolatry the Israelites 
did right inside the Temple they build in the name of Jehovah. All this 
will be good knowledge but that will not change a person from inside, 
for they do not relate directly to us today.

The Word of God is eternal and talks to us in all our situations. It was 
sent for the salvation of mankind and until Judgment Day and the return 
of man to God, the Word of God will not return to the Father.

We know preachers (including Pastors) preach about God but as today's 
scripture says most of them do not preach before God but preach before 
their idols. Their idols could be themselves, or their seniors, or the 
worldly wise men in the congregation, or the purpose of holding people, 
or the purpose of finance etc. The Lord is saying because they do not 
preach before Him these preachers cause iniquity to come on the people 
and thus cause the hand of God to be against the people. Note this is 
not the only reason people (Christians) face problems but is one of the 
reasons. The Lord is alerting us that the person who should be 
instrument in leading people out of problems could be the cause of their 

When one goes into word (Hebrew and Greek word) study, one touches a 
deeper dimension of the scripture. The Hebrew word for idol comes from a 
verb which means to roll, the Hebrew word translated as iniquity comes 
from the word distortion.

Idol worship (may be an object, image or even people or desires) causes 
people not to grow or move ahead even though they are in motion. It 
causes people to go in circles and be in the same spiritual state. If we 
look at the spiritual growth of the Church, we will know how deep it is 
in idol worship and then it would be easy to find its various idols. It 
is because of the idolatry of the Church that we have so much distorted 
understanding of scriptures. Today's scripture says the Lord's hand is 
against His people and thus has caused them to be immersed in their 
distorted understanding.

Today the Lord says the only way out for the Church is the preachers 
should realize they are preaching not only in the name of the Lord but 
also in the presence of the Lord. The day preachers preach in the 
presence of the Lord the Church will be on fire for God and the Kingdom 
of God will expand.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord the Church grew in understanding in the early day, the days of the 
Apostles, after that the Church has been growing at snail speed. It has 
converted people but has not made many Christians. Many think all that 
needs to be known about the Word is already known therefore they do not 
need the Spirit or sought Him to reveal more and more of the Word. Holy 
Spirit, You are the Spirit of the Son, the Spirit of Truth and the Rock 
on which the Church is built. We pray Holy Spirit that the preachers 
depend more and more on You then on men, and when they preach they 
experience your presence...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

John 14:26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father 
will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all 
things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Matthew 12:18Behold 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 [separation] to the Gentiles.

Acts 2:16-21

16But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

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

18And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days 
of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

19And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth 
beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:

20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before 
that great and notable day of the Lord come:

21And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of 
the Lord shall be saved.

Galatians 4:6And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of 
his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.

Are you ready for her fall?
Jeremiah 51:64And thou shalt say, Thus shall Babylon sink, and shall not 
rise from the evil that I will bring upon her: and they shall be weary. 
Thus far are the words of Jeremiah.

A Christian writer Robert Shank wrote 'men are to oscillate between two 
contradictory persuasions like a pendulum and are not to view the whole 
testimony of the Scriptures with complete sincerity at one time, but are 
to be one day sincerely persuaded that the Bible warns us against 
apostasy, and another day sincerely persuaded that the Bible assures us 
that apostasy is impossible.'

In his book 'Life in the Son' Robert Shank wrote 'spiritual death is the 
inevitable consequence of habitual sinning as a deliberate pattern of 
behavior', 'men are not immediately deprived of grace by a single act of 

A few days back a sister stated she feared blaspheming the Holy Spirit 
but she was not clear what blaspheming really was? I told her grieving 
the Holy Spirit and blaspheming the Holy Spirit was an unforgivable sin. 
She was taken back if grieving and blasphemy was same. Blasphemy of the 
Holy Spirit is mocking the Holy Spirit and one does that to hurt or 
grieve the Holy Spirit. The first leads to the second since the 
consequence is same. One should also note we can do the second without 
doing the first that is by actions we can grieve the Holy Spirit without 
saying words.

This is generally true that one can lose the grace of by one's 
consistent sinning. Paul asks if we take the sacrifice of Christ for 
granted then is there any other way for our salvation.

Many people think when they mock God and when God does not take action 
against them that God is okay with their mocking. In the book of Daniel 
the Lord speaks of the little horn that came from the seven horns and 
which blasphemies God and mocks Him. If one studies history of Europe 
one would know of 7 kingdoms from which came the Vatican which is both a 
kingdom and also a religious body. This church has been mocking God from 
its start that is 300AD and since God did not really pour His wrath on 
her she has been thinking nothing will happen to her and that she has 
the certification of God. She does not know her end and her plagues are 
already written. This Church has replaced the place of the Holy Spirit 
with a woman whom the Church calls Mother Mary, using this woman they 
mock the Spirit of God.

God is telling us her time of punishment is at hand and like the book of 
Revelation states her people will flee from her and forsake her. God is 
asking us are we ready to save them which flee her?

Today the number of Catholics in the world is nearly 1 billion strong. 
While the numbers of Believers (Protestants as called by Catholics) is 
put at 800 million, this includes Churches we do not really consider as 

Today is the time we should think of building larger halls, set greater 
plans and greater missions to reach out to the lost especially among the 

[Prayer Starter]
Lord, many souls were martyred by this little horn which mocks You. She 
has manipulated your Laws and made your people to do idolatry in your 
name. She has caused many to be misled and lose their salvation by her 
deceit. Lord we know the prayers of those who were martyred will be 
heard and the time is at hand. We pray Lord your people be sensitive to 
this time and reach out to those within little horn and save them...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[Reference Scriptures]
Daniel 7:8I 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.

Daniel 8:9-12
9And 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.

10And 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.

11Yea, 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.

12And 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.

Go, baptize and teach in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit

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

In IT service industry everyone in a company is not excellent in their 
knowledge and understanding of operations so to have consistency in 
service levels we have what is known as SOP (Standard Operation 
Procedure), where a process is document as to how it is to be executed 
with its steps. People think this is modern but they are not aware the 
Bible is full of SOPs given thousands of years before. But sadly people 
do not follow Bible SOPs and thus we have very inconsistent results in 
the Kingdom of God. People are not well rooted in the Kingdom of God due 
to this problem thus when problems come we see even Church leaders are 
shaking and getting consumed by vanity.

Today's message is one of the greatest SOP in the Bible which if 
followed we will see very strong Men and Women of God.

If we read the scriptures properly it says go therefore and teach all 
nations (people) baptizing them. There is a comma after therefore and 
after nations thus making them three different steps of the processes, 
also it says teach them baptizing them. It does not say teach them and 
then baptize them, it says teach baptizing them, so the teaching starts 
with baptism first and continues as they are baptized.

Baptism is not an incident but a long process which starts will the 
person surrendering to Christ and His Spirit and continues as the person 
keeps surrendering more of oneself to Christ and His Spirit. Giving the 
Gospel and teaching the Word are two different things. Gospel is giving 
the good news of the hope of salvation in Jesus Christ, it is when the 
person receives the news of hope or eternal life in Christ and 
surrenders to Christ then the person is baptizes and taught the Word of 
God. Without baptism in Christ one will not receive the promise of the 
Holy Spirit and without the Holy Spirit one will never be able to 
understand the Word of God.

The Greek word 'go therefore' does not simply mean to travel. The Greek 
word 'poreuomai' comes from root word 'peira' which means to trail, 
experience or attempt. Unless we do not become examples, we do not 
experience and we do not attempt we cannot go. To go we need to radiate 
Christ by self-experience Him. Unless we receive Christ we can give 
Christ so like the twelve who were sent after they received (Luke 9:1-6) 
we need to first receive to go and give.

We need to baptize people after they have accepted the Gospel and only 
after they have accepted the Gospel and are baptized in Christ do we 
teach them the Word of God. The Scripture says we do these three 
processes in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This is not a 
hierarchy status; the Holy Spirit is not lesser than the Son for the 
Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Son and also the Father. The Son and 
His Spirit (whom we receive) are an offset of the Father, yet scripture 
says Father, Son and Spirit. This is done because it is who reveals who.

Unless one does not know who God (Father) is the person will not know 
the Son. Son is the Way to the Father and if we do not know where we are 
going or we do not desire to go to the destination would we go the way?

Even though Jesus Christ became the way when there was no way yet to go 
alone the way or to become like Christ is not possible, that is why He 
gave us His Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit who reveals to us about 
Christ, walks with us, helps us and guides us along the way which is Christ.

Let us follow the SOP and see great results in the Kingdom of God for 
this SOP comes from Him who knows all. Let us not ignore or mock this 
SOP like the Catholics do by making the sign of the cross while saying it.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are Holy, Righteous, Almighty, All Seeing and All Knowing. Your 
wisdom has no measure and cannot be comprehended. Lord we pray your 
people do not follow their own understanding but like the Israelites 
followed the pillar of fire and cloud they follow your Word and Spirit. 
We pray for a great harvest for this is the time of harvest...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Mark 16:15-16

15And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel 
to every creature.

16He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that 
believeth not shall be damned.

Luke 9:1-6

1Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and 
authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.

2And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.

3And he said unto them, Take nothing for your journey, neither staves, 
nor scrip, neither bread, neither money; neither have two coats apiece.

4And whatsoever house ye enter into, there abide, and thence depart.

5And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake 
off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.

6And they departed, and went through the towns, preaching the gospel, 
and healing every where.

Acts 14:21And when they had preached the gospel to that city, and had 
taught many, they returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,

In the end days

Isaiah 66:19,20And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those 
that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that 
draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not 
heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my 
glory among the Gentiles. And they shall bring all your brethren for an 
offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, 
and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy 
mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of Israel bring an 
offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD.

This scripture has a dual prophecy it was partly fulfilled in 70AD where 
many Jews who fled Jerusalem were dispersed to various places. But then 
this fulfillment was just the shadow of what the prophecy is about.

The World was celebrating World Prayer Day last Sunday which must have 
pleased everyone that all denominations across 200 plus nations were 
praying on common points, I too would have been until I realized what 
was happening.

It may come as a surprise at times even praying can cause one to be far 
from God that is when praying overrides the purpose of God. You may say 
brother praying is good and Bible tells us to pray unceasingly, True. 
But prayer is supposed to be two way communications not one way. When we 
make prayer one way then it is not called prayer.

Last Sunday was (supposed to be) Pentecost Sunday to celebrate the day 
when the Holy Spirit was given to the Church and in other words it was 
the birthday of the Church in Christ and the day before the Lord gave us 
the message on the importance of the Spirit of Truth. So on that day 
instead of concentrating on infilling of the Holy Spirit on the Church, 
people were led (by their understanding) to pray. One of the points of 
prayer was peace in the world. Just ask yourself can we possibly have 
peace in the world? For that God will have to give us a new edition of 
the Bible for what is written cannot change. Now ask yourself was it God 
behind the World Prayer Day?

Another point of the World Prayer Day was to pray for Israel.

In the Bible there is a verse to pray for Jerusalem but no verse which 
says pray for Israel. I always ask people who are Israelites? Are 
Israelite people who habitats in the country Israel or those who hold 
valid citizenship of that country? Are Jews Israelites? What about 
Samarians people who were former Israel when the nation was split into 
Judah (Jews) and Israel (Samarians), are they not Israelites? Some would 
say those who are descendants of Jacob are called Israel. Now if you 
study Zoroastrian religion which believes in pure genealogy you would 
know how they are demising even after going into incest marriages. No 
outsider can become a Zoroastrian and any Zoroastrian marrying an 
outsider is automatically excommunicated from the clan. In the Bible 
many Prophets or Men of God married outsiders and their generations were 
considered Israelites.

Jews follow Judaism and Judaism is anti-Christ. They reject Christ and 
thus reject the Lord even they say they worship Him. Jesus, Paul and 
others have time and again pointed to the Jews that they were far for 
God and did not know Him. We find a new term Jewish-Christian it is same 
like Hindu-Christian. When a person become Christian he or is no longer 
follower of any traditions or belief, he or she is just Christian.

Our God is Lord of the World, every human from any and every country is 
His people when they turn to Him and are born again in Spirit. God is 
not God of flesh and bones which perish but He is God of the living 
which does not perish. He is Spirit and only those who live in the 
Spirit are His.

In my initial days when I read today scripture I would think in the way 
most people do how in the end days God is going to reconcile Israel 
through people outside; but then as God started giving me better 
understanding of His Kingdom I realized the whole world is His and every 
nation is His.

Woe unto us Christians if in the end days we land up like the Jews who 
earnestly awaited the sign of the Savior, the Heavenly King during the 
time of Jesus and even today they are still await for the Savior, since 
their desires are carnal and not according the Kingdom of God.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are God and You alone are God for there is no one other than 
You and this world and everything that exist is yours. Lord we pray we 
understand who You are in our lives and we enlarge our thinking and 
understanding of your Kingdom. We pray we do not be like the Jews who 
follow the text and perish. The text kills but Spirit gives life. Lord 
we pray we let your Spirit guide us to the true understanding of your 
Word so that we do not perish but have life...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 22:32I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God 
of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

Mark 12:27He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye 
therefore do greatly err.

Galatians 3:28There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor 
free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.

Colossians 3:11Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor 
uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, 
and in all.

R.D SOUZA Saved by faith  - Page 22 Empty Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Tue 17 May 2016, 8:04 pm

Saints you have the authority

Psalm 149:6-9

6Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in 
their hand;

7To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

8To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

9To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his 
saints. Praise ye the LORD.

We as Christians are called to show the love and mercy of God, in other 
words show the nature of God like Jesus showed as man. Bible says in 
Christ we are forgiven of all our sins, but that does not mean God 
forgives all things and bears all things of every person.

Forgiveness is available to all but all do not receive it, only those 
who repent are forgiven. Christ died for all but all do not go to 
Heaven, only those who believe in Him and submit to His Spirit do. All 
are created by God but all are not His children, only those who have the 
seed of faith are [speak the language of faith]. Even among those who 
enter Heaven, all do not have the same status. Bible says 'many are 
called' it does not say 'all are called' so it is referring to a sub 
set. It also says from that 'many' a very small group stated as 'few' 
are selected / elected. So among all that believe in God there are few 
who are truly faithful.

God does believe in equality and loves everyone the same when they are 
in Him; that is why Bible says 'in Christ' there is no condemnation. So 
if John referred to himself as 'the one whom He loved' so can each and 
every one of us who believes in Christ. Even those who are not in Christ 
can say the same until He comes again to judge that is if they are alive 
then [since those who do not believe in Him are already judged and 
condemned to Hell on their death, since Adam and his generations were 
cursed to dust not just in body but also in spirit].

Today's message tells us those who are the Saints [Faithful ones] of God 
have authority to do the following.

To execute vengeance upon the heathen

To bring punishment upon the people

To bind their kings with chains

To bind their nobles with fetters of iron

The word heathen means 'people', it is a generic term but in the Bible 
usually used for those who were non Hebrew means not His people 
(symbolizes those do not speak His language of faith). It does not speak 
of personal vengeance against these people but of God's vengeance since 
verse 9 says 'judgment written'.

Punishment upon the people (people who believe in God) does not mean 
punishment in sense of destruction; the Hebrew word means more of 
correction, like a teacher punishes. It speaks of Saints having 
authority to bring correction to God's people.

The Hebrew word 'chains' comes from the root word 'leap'. To bind their 
kings with chains does not mean to imprison them but means to quicken. 
Similarly with regards to the nobles being bond with the fetters of 
iron, the iron here symbolizes strength. You may wonder what the 
scripture is talking about.

Note the 'kings' and 'nobles' comes after the word 'people' and not 
after the word 'heathen'. It does not speak of kings and nobles of the 
heathens as one is normally led to think. The word 'kings' means 
'rulers' or 'people of authority' and word 'nobles' means 'honored ones' 
and speak of those set over the people of God.

Today's message says the Faithful of God have the authority to quicken 
God's judgment on the people of the world, they have authority to 
correct the people of God, they have authority to give increase to those 
set to administer the people of God and strengthen those who are honored 
or looked up [as example] by them.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You alone are God and Almighty. Your Word Lord says we all are one 
in You as a body and as parts of the one body. Even though we are all 
loved the same yet each one has a function and a mission according to 
the plans You have set. Lord we pray those who are the Elect, those who 
are called your Faithful may understand the authority they have in You. 
May they use their authority to quicken the coming of your Kingdom on 

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 20:16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be 
called, but few chosen.

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

R.D SOUZA Saved by faith  - Page 22 Empty Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Sun 15 May 2016, 9:42 pm

Why Spirit of Truth is very important

Isaiah 52:3,4 For thus saith the LORD, Ye have sold yourselves for 
nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money. For thus saith the Lord 
GOD, My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the 
Assyrian oppressed them without cause.

When a Christian is asked why did God humble Himself and come as man to 
become a sacrifice for us? And almost all will say, so that we are 
forgiven of our sins. These are the name sake Christians who do not know 
Christ or His purpose.

Surely sin does not allow us to have any relationship with God but just 
by forgiveness of sins no one can be reconciled to God. Sin causes 
corruption and corruption breeds sin. So even though we are forgiven of 
our sins yet because of the corrupt nature within us we sin again. So 
for God to deal permanently with sin within us He needs to deal with 
corruption in us.

Corruption came into man due to doubt and lack of truth. Adam and Eve 
ate of the fruit of doubt. They ate of the Tree of good and evil, even 
after knowing all things that God created was good and there was no evil 
then other than Satan, and by eating the fruit they knew evil / Satan. 
After they ate the fruit of doubt they lost the Fruit of Truth and 
Righteousness and thus were hiding in bushes from a God who can see all, 
and they covered their nakedness even though they were naked before.

To return to God we need to be whole again and thus we need to receive 
the Fruit of Truth and Righteousness. The Fruit of Righteousness and 
Truth are not listed in the nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 
5:22-23) for man lost them and can only receive them from the Son and 
the Holy Spirit respectively as a gift. To receive this gift of 
Righteousness we need to have faith in the Son and to receive Truth we 
need to be led by the Spirit of Truth.

There are twelve Fruits of the Holy Spirit (Revelation 22:2, even the 
twelve gems on the breast plate of High Priest / stones Heaven is made 
of symbolize the Fruits of the Spirit), nine stated in Galatians are 
ones we can grow while the three in Ephesians 5:9 are gifts. God the Son 
gives us Righteousness, God the Spirit gives us Truth and God the Father 
gives us Holiness (when we enter Heaven / are married to the Son).

Coming back to the main question, the Lord came as man to pay the price 
of our sins to that we receive His Spirit and thus be reconciled to Him. 
That is why Jesus said unless we become His disciples [believe Him] and 
know the truth we will not be set free [free from corruption].

The Hebrew word Egypt means 'dual strait' symbolizing a person who is of 
God but living a life not of God, like the Israelites lived in Egypt 
worshipping even the gods of the Egyptians.

The Hebrew word Assyria means 'step' and symbolizes prosperity. The calf 
was a symbol of prosperity and we saw how the Israelites did to fear to 
worship the calf even when death was over their head and they knew God. 
Today also man would do anything to be prosperous in this world. 
Prosperity of this world is the anti of the prosperity of the Kingdom of 
God. Preachers today preach Prosperity Gospel which is like calf worship 
done by the Israelites. Jesus at times told people to give up all they 
have, sell it, give the money to the poor and follow Him. He did not 
tell that to all but to those who held on to things of this world. Jesus 
also said it is almost impossible for the rich to enter the Kingdom of God.

This may surprise you - Prosperity of the world is not a blessing. 
Prosperity of the world is oppression and more you get it more you will 
be oppressed. That does not mean Christians need to be poor people, or 
beggars. We Christian need to know what we need and anything extra we 
need to share with others. We Christians need to be overflowing vessels. 
Tithing is just a step to learn to overflow and teach ourselves Giving.

Today's message says man due to lack of knowledge of the Truth people 
are living in Egypt (living a dual life) and being oppressed by Assyria 
(prosperity). The only one who can free us from Egypt and Assyria is the 
Spirit of Truth. Jesus paid the price so that we could receive His 
Spirit – the Spirit of Truth. So let us who believe in Jesus Christ as 
our Savior surrender to His Spirit, be led by Him and thus become whole 
(Sons of God).

Truth cannot be learned but needs to be understood, that is why by 
studying the Bible one cannot know the Truth, it is only by living the 
Word of God and being led by His Spirit (who helps us live the Word) 
that we will know the Truth.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord When You created us we were made in your Image and were called 
Sons, but due to sin the image within us got corrupted. We were thrown 
out from your presence because corruption cannot exist before You. Lord 
You came as man and paid the price so that we could receive your Spirit 
and be whole again so as to come back in your presence. Lord we pray we 
grow in the Truth and come out of Egypt and be set free from Assyria...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Isaiah 52:5-6

5Now therefore, what have I here, saith the LORD, that my people is 
taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, saith 
the LORD; and my name continually every day is blasphemed.

6Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in 
that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.

Galatians 5:22-23

22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, 
gentleness, goodness, faith,

23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

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

Revelation 22:2In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of 
the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of 
fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree 
were for the healing of the nations.

Acts 4:33-35

33And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of 
the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

34Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were 
possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the 
things that were sold,

35And laid them down at the apostles' feet: and distribution was made 
unto every man according as he had need.

The enemy shall be ashamed

Esther 6:12 And Mordecai came again to the king’s gate. But Haman hasted 
to his house mourning, and having his head covered.

All who have read the book of Esther would know the story of how her 
uncle Mordecai being a righteous person won favored in the eyes of king 
Ashasuerus the king of Persia under whose rule the Jews were. On the 
other hand Haman who was a favorite of the king and enemy of the Jews 
was put down and ashamed.

The book of Esther was not part of the Bible (OT) even during the time 
of Jesus but was included later so it is like an Apocrypha of the Jews. 
But unlike the Apocrypha of the Catholics this book does not induce any 
theological doctrines. It is just about the glorification of the victory 
and survival of the Jews through a great disaster. It can be read as 
other chronicle books of the OT. So if someone say the Bible has 65 or 
66 books, both answers would be right (incidentally the book of Isaiah 
has 65 or 66 chapters since the last is kind of repeated).

The OT is a shadow and we in Christ are the reality. If God would do 
such great things in the shadow then imagine what He is capable of doing 
in the light. Today God is saying if we walk in His ways of 
righteousness our enemies will eat the dust and will be ashamed before 
their very own. So do not live or change your life to please people but 
live your life to please God and God will make the kings / rulers of 
this world / your bosses / your leaders to favor you even if they do not 
like it.

The opposite is also true, when we forsake His ways we will be ashamed 
before our enemies.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are God and a Living God. We pray Lord we do not forget You 
are Alive at all times and You are in view and understanding of our 
situations more than us. We pray Lord we live our lives not to please 
people but to please You and surely You will cause us to have favor not 
only in your sight but also in the sight of the rulers of this world...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Leviticus 26:3-9

3If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;

4Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her 
increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.

5And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall 
reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and 
dwell in your land safely.

6And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none 
shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, 
neither shall the sword go through your land.

7And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the 

8And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put 
ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.

9For I will have respect unto you, and make you fruitful, and multiply 
you, and establish my covenant with you.

Psalms 23:5aThou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine 

Deuteronomy 28:7The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against 
thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one 
way, and flee before thee seven ways.

Deuteronomy 28:15,25

15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of 
the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes 
which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon 
thee, and overtake thee:

25The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou 
shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and 
shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

Lord will search with candles

Zephaniah 1:12-14

12And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem 
with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that 
say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will he do evil.

13Therefore 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.

14The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, 
even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there 

Religions that do idolatry in reality believe in non-existing god/gods 
and thus create one with their own hands. Christianity is not a 
religion; it is about acknowledging the Living God but even in 
Christianity idolatry exists. In Christianity we see Catholics do 
idolatry and sadly they alone are not just the ones who do it. Believer 
Churches also do idolatry even if they do not make or bow or serve 
images or idols. As one moves from Catholic to a Believer who worships 
God in Spirit and Truth we find idolatry in varying proportions along 
this road.

One may wonder how is it possible to make idols and worship them when we 
have the Word of God which tells us the Truth. Today's message gives us 
an insight of why this happens. People think because God does not react 
immediately or judge immediately so people think God is ok with it, God 
understands, He is a comprising God.

Just some days back a Catholic who receives my messages (but with a 
hardened heart of 'I will die Catholic') was telling me God judges 
instantly and does not delay for He is a just God.

One may think he was speaking good and praising God, but if one discerns 
his actual meaning he was in other words saying in this world evil exist 
and God has done nothing so God will do nothing and evil will get away 

Let us remember Bible is full of prophecies and these prophecies have 
been set in its time. Like from day one God knew who will abide in His 
Will and wrote their names in the Book of Life so also God knew how much 
deep and wide evil would spread so He set barrier for it to not 
overflow. Bible also says what evil existed before is the same evil we 
see today but it is only in a different form. Also since population has 
increased and communication improved we hear of more evil and hear it 

One will find the belief of balance of good and bad which exist in 
spiritualism religion (believing in spirits of nature) / polytheism 
religions also exist in monotheist religions which believe in a god / 
God. Take case of Islam or Catholicism, they believe sin has to be paid 
its price some or other way even though they speak of forgiveness of 
sins, that is why they believes in penance and Catholicism has a concept 
known as Purgatory.

One may think these people are trying to acknowledge good and bad and 
are trying to overcome evil. That is not true, they are instead trying 
to justify evil and continue in it. What they are really doing is saying 
God punishes evil and since He has not punished evil like what we do, so 
He is okay with it. That is why they do not fear to do evil or continue 
in it.

Today God is telling the so called Christians [others are already 
judged] who think God's hands are short, that time is at hand He will 
soon search the hearts and thoughts of His people like a man searches 
with candles or torch and He is going to punish them like one would not 

[Prayer Starter]

Lord God one of the Names You are described by is Slow to Anger. Lord 
You are a Righteous God yet You are a Merciful God. You hate evil but 
You love man whom You have created in your Image. In your mercy Lord, 
You have given sinful man time and all the help to come out of evil so 
that man does not get consumed with it. We pray Lord these people walk 
up and their eyes open to know You and that they repent from their ways 
and be saved from your wrath...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Psalms 10:11,13

11He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he 
will never see it.

For His Name sake and Covenant sake

Jeremiah 14:20-22

20We acknowledge, O LORD, our wickedness, and the iniquity of our 
fathers: for we have sinned against thee.

21Do not abhor us, for thy name's sake, do not disgrace the throne of 
thy glory: remember, break not thy covenant with us.

22Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles that can cause rain? 
or can the heavens give showers? art not thou he, O LORD our God? 
therefore we will wait upon thee: for thou hast made all these things.

When the summer started in India I was given a warning (vision) of this 
being a crazy summer (humans going crazy), in the very next 2 days I saw 
in papers in a place in the suburbs of Mumbai police were on the streets 
due to people rioting for water. We have read after that the way things 
were in many villages, some villages banded marriages for this summer. 
Some villages were half emptied since people moved out for the sake of 
water so that they could survive. Some villages we saw people did not 
bath for 8 days and if they did it was like mopping not bathing.

We heard after some time Church leaders and their congregations came 
together and prayed hard and then we saw immediately relieve came, with 
rains starting in those areas. Everyone is now happy that they prayed 
and the Lord answered, but none want to find out why in the first place 
this happened. Do things happen without the Lord being in control?

If we remember we received our first warning 14th Feb, another on 9th 
March and the 14th Feb message was repeated on 17th April of how the Men 
of God were projecting a wrong image of God to the people so as to 
please them.

Today God is telling us the cause of this drought was the leaders 
themselves who angered God, but yet for His Name sake and the sake of 
His Covenant His mercy gave way.

Let us understand who we are in Christ. The world can be as evil as it 
wants but if we are rooted in the Lord and walk in His ways the world 
and its people are safe, but the day we shake spiritually and forsake 
the Lord's ways, this world will see the wrath of God.

Like Moses stood between the people and God's wrath we too stand between 
this evil world and God's wrath, so not only for our own sake but also 
for the sake of others who do not know God let us Men of God stand in Him.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we Chosen of You are set as Watchmen over your people and over the 
people of this world. Lord we pray we understand our responsibility of 
not pleasing the carnal people but walk in the Truth, in your ways which 
are ways of light. We pray your people learn so that they do not see 
such days again...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Jeremiah 14:1-6

1The word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah concerning the dearth.

2Judah mourneth, and the gates thereof languish; they are black unto the 
ground; and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up.

3And their nobles have sent their little ones to the waters: they came 
to the pits, and found no water; they returned with their vessels empty; 
they were ashamed and confounded, and covered their heads.

4Because the ground is chapt, for there was no rain in the earth, the 
plowmen were ashamed, they covered their heads.

5Yea, the hind also calved in the field, and forsook it, because there 
was no grass.

6And the wild asses did stand in the high places, they snuffed up the 
wind like dragons; their eyes did fail, because there was no grass.

Jeremiah 14:11-18

11Then said the LORD unto me, Pray not for this people for their good.

12When they fast, I will not hear their cry; and when they offer burnt 
offering and an oblation, I will not accept them: but I will consume 
them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.

13Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye 
shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give 
you assured peace in this place.

14Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I 
sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: 
they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of 
nought, and the deceit of their heart.

15Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in 
my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not 
be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.

16And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets 
of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have 
none to bury them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their 
daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.

17Therefore thou shalt say this word unto them; Let mine eyes run down 
with tears night and day, and let them not cease: for the virgin 
daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very 
grievous blow.

18If I go forth into the field, then behold the slain with the sword! 
and if I enter into the city, then behold them that are sick with 
famine! yea, both the prophet and the priest go about into a land that 
they know not.

Message on 14th Feb

Jeremiah 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible 
thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the 
hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are 
all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

Message on 9th March

The anger of God is like His Word

Jeremiah 23:20 The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have 
executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the 
latter days ye shall consider it perfectly.

We always state the scripture of Isaiah 55:11 how the Word of God sent 
by the Lord will not return to Him without doing what it has been set to 
do, but none speak of the anger which like His Word will never return 
without doing what it was set to do.

God hates sin, His anger is against sin and sin will perish at the end. 
Who so ever is in sin will also perish for His anger will destroy sin 
and everything connected to it. But since He loves us, He did not hold 
back in any way to help us to come out of sin so that we live and are 
blessed in Him.

Today's scripture talks of another thing that angers God and that is 
false or maligned prophecy. Here we are not talking just of false Men of 
God who are not Christians (or associated with God's name). God says 
there were people who call themselves His representative and speak in 
His name saying things which He has not said. His anger is not only 
against these false representatives but also against those who are His 
representatives and due to various reasons twist His Word just to please 
people and gain pleasure of the carnal flesh / soul.

Yesterday I heard peaching at Sunday Service which was half Christian 
and half Hinduism or Chinese philosophy (yin yang) that believes in 
balance of good and bad. What angered me was not just the ignorance or 
lack of scriptural knowledge of the preacher but also of those hearing 
it. The people swallowed the bones along with the chicken. The spirit 
that does not discern but accepts all things is symbolized as a pig and 
God says this spirit is an unclean spirit; people having such unclean 
spirits will not experience Him or dwell in His presence.

We forget scriptures like Jeremiah 23:29 where God says isn't my Word 
fire or a hammer that breaks rocks. His Word is required to purify us by 
burning that which is not of Him in us, His Word is like a hammer that 
breaks falsehood in us.

People find my messages hard or strong for I give which I receive from 
the Lord. They ask me to soften the message and reflect more of the 
mercy and compassion of God. Is God compassionate and His Word 

God's Word is a sword that not against us but against sin and sin 
nature. If we do not want to come out of the sin nature then can we 
expect God's sword not to hurt us? Jesus said the Father is Husband of 
the Vineyard who cuts us off from the vine of Adam and prunes us into 
the true vine which is Christ. At the end all that is not in the vine 
which is Christ will be cut and put in the fire. Now if we do not want 
to be disconnected from the old vine can we escape the fire? Can we 
bridge the old vine to the vine of Christ?

[Prayer Starter]

Lord your Word is like a double edge sword that splits the bone from the 
marrow, it spits that old character from the spirit. Like your Word your 
anger too is holy and it will not return back void, without doing what 
it is set against. Lord we pray we understand how fearful it is to fall 
in the hands of the Living God, we pray your Representatives be honest 
to your Word and speak as it is given unto them, that they do not invoke 
judgment on them...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it 
shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I 
please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Jeremiah 23:21-32

21I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to 
them, yet they prophesied.

22But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear 
my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and 
from the evil of their doings.

23Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off?

24Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith 
the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.

25I have heard what the prophets said, that prophesy lies in my name, 
saying, I have dreamed, I have dreamed.

26How long shall this be in the heart of the prophets that prophesy 
lies? yea, they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart;

27Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which 
they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my 
name for Baal.

28The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath 
my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the 
wheat? saith the LORD.

29Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that 
breaketh the rock in pieces?

30Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that 
steal my words every one from his neighbour.

31Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their 
tongues, and say, He saith.

32Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, 
and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their 
lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall 
not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.

Hebrews 10:31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

Be poor and be a prey

Psalms 10:9 He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in 
wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into 
his net.

Today's message talking of how the wicked preys on the poor like a 
hungry lion consumes its prey. The scripture is not talking of those who 
are financially poor but about those who are spiritually poor.

When we are not spiritually strong / mature we are available preys to 
the wicked. Note in today's message it says the wicked is like a hungry 
lion hiding in its den. So for the poor to become a prey of the wicked 
it needs to go near the den, if it does not go near the den then it is 
safe. The scripture also says the wicked draws the prey towards its den 
using deceiving ways (net). So for the poor it is not just about making 
up one's mind of not going near the den but also of actively discerning 
things so as to not fall to the tricks the wicked uses to draw it 
towards its den.

What is very interesting is as I was studying today's scripture I 
checked the meaning of the word poor. I found it comes from the root 
word which means to be occupied or to be busy.

Each and every person who is on the journey to become like Christ 
(definition of a Christian) is a growing person. That means if we have 
decided to be Christian, we like it or not we will grow spiritually. The 
only things that can stop us from growing is us. That does not mean we 
reject Christ but means we get ourselves busy with things, even if they 
may be 'Christian' things.

A person poor in spirit means a person who is busy with the world or 
worldly things and lacks time for his or she spirit.

God is telling us if we do not want to be a prey to the wicked then 
remove time for the worldly things we are busy with. When we say we do 
not have time it means we are nearing the den of the wicked one and we 
will any time land up being prey to him.

Today God is telling us to ask ourselves how much time we give to our 
spiritual growth in the Lord. If we are not internally growing then we 
are spiritually poor and if we are spiritually poor it would not be long 
that we will become prey to the wicked one.

Tomorrow when we fall into calamity do not look up and ask God why? But 
ask ourselves why did I not remove time for myself?

[Prayer Starter]

Lord in the Bible You call yourself a Morning Star, also You Lord ask 
for the first fruits. Lord we pray we understand their meaning. We pray 
we give You Lord the best part of our day which is the early morning. 
Help us Lord to spend time with You and your Word early morning, the 
time the Manna fell so that we get nourished and do not be poor and prey 
to the wicked...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Psalms 10:2-11

2The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in 
the devices that they have imagined.

3For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the 
covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.

4The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after 
God: God is not in all his thoughts.

5His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his 
sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them.

6He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be 
in adversity.

7His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is 
mischief and vanity.

8He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places 
doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor.

9He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to 
catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.

10He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his 
strong ones.

11He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hideth his face; he 
will never see it.

Revelation 22:16I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these 
things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and 
the bright and morning star.

Deuteronomy 26:2That thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of 
the earth, which thou shalt bring of thy land that the LORD thy God 
giveth thee, and shalt put it in a basket, and shalt go unto the place 
which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name there.

Heart of the Mother

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

Jesus was surrounded by the 12 chosen disciples who were Apostles (in 
Calling), His other disciples (those who believed in Him) and a team of 
women which included His own mother. Most people talk of the Apostles 
but if you look at scriptures through the four Gospels you will find the 
times when the Apostles and other disciples gave up on Jesus it was the 
women who did not.

When Jesus was crucified and all the Apostles fled as prophesied, we see 
these women followed Him through His ordeal and right unto the crucifix 
when He hung from it. People think the Apostle were there at the foot of 
the crucifix when Jesus hung from it and Jesus spoke to John the 'one 
whom He loved' but that is not true, it is not written that this person 
was John. As per prophecy the Apostles fed and were hiding until the 
women found them and told them that too after Jesus' resurrection. You 
will not find any of their names written after the incident of Peter who 
even though denied Him thrice sis actually dared to follow before 
fleeing like them.

These women were not perfect yet they showed incredible courage. Each 
one of them showed great flaws this included Jesus' own mother who in 
between was shaken when people accused Jesus of having an evil spirit so 
came running with her son to see if Jesus was okay, this angered Jesus. 
Mary Magdalene who loved Jesus the most (since she was forgiven the 
most) too was very concentrated on doing pagan (Egyptian) rituals 
followed by Jews from Galilee of embalming the body on the third day 
like they did to Lazarus (who was actually mummified that is why his 
bringing back to life shocked everyone) and for which all the women sat 
and prepared the spices and ointments. Salome wife of Zebedee and sister 
of Mary (also called as Mary) was part of Jesus' dedicated team. She was 
more bothered of her sons doing great in the ministry of Jesus than 
anything else.

You will note one thing, there were many Marys in Jesus' group and 
leaving for His mother the others were given this name as a nick name 
(called by the name Mary). Bible does say Jesus gave them this name but 
when you understand the meaning of the name it will be without doubt who 
gave them this name. The name is not actually a good name for it comes 
from the Hebrew word Mariam which means 'bitter'. No person would change 
the name of a person having name 'peace' to 'bitter' unless there is a 
reason behind it and the reason as I believe Jesus honoured her as His 
own mother. Mary Magdalene having a great history would not have been 
young women. Theologians believe she was the woman who was saved from 
being stoned (this incident was not part of the origin Gospels 
manuscripts but was added in the later manuscripts). She was not the 
only prostitute in town or woman having much adultery linked to her. She 
was selected for she being of age was disposable.

Today is Mother's Day and God also wants us to honour our mothers even 
though they may not be perfect. Like the courage of these women we too 
can recall the courage and dedication our own mothers. So let us bless 
them for all they have done and pray for they wellbeing in the future.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are called Father even though You are given the name Jealous 
which in Hebrew means the possessiveness of a mother. Even though in 
spirit we are one yet You made woman so that we can understand things 
which hidden. We ask You lord to bless our mothers and keep them in You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Mark 15:40There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary 
Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome;

Mark 16:1And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the 
mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might 
come and anoint him.

Matthew 28:1In 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 

Joh 19:25 Therefore the soldiers did these things. But there were 
standing by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother's sister[,] 
Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.

Mar 15:47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses were looking 
on to see where He was laid.

Mat 27:56 among whom was Mary Magdalene, along with Mary the mother of 
James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.

Mark 3:30-33

30Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

31There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, 
sent unto him, calling him.

32And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy 
mother and thy brethren without seek for thee.

33And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren?

Mark 14:27And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of 
me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the 
sheep shall be scattered.

John 16:32Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be 
scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am

3And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in 
adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

4They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the 
very act.

5Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what 
sayest thou?

The punishment of Aholah Samaria

Ezekiel 23:10 These discovered her nakedness: they took her sons and her 
daughters, and slew her with the sword: and she became famous among 
women; for they had executed judgment upon her.

In the Bible Israel was split into two Israel (northern part) and Judah 
(the southern part). The capital of Israel (northern part) was Samaria 
(means 'watch mountains' but refers to the rocky mountains which 
symbolize little or many truths and not the Truth which is one) and the 
capital of southern part was Jerusalem. The people of the northern part 
were started to be known as Samarian and the southern part as Jews, thou 
this was not geographically defined but religiously defined. In the OT 
the northern people were always defying the Word of God and following 
traditions of people under the name of religion. Galilee was in the 
northern part and one of the most cosmopolitan hubs at that time since 
it was a very active business port and due to this, traditions fused 
together and thus it is written could a Prophet come from Galilee. 
During the time of Jesus although the territories were one yet the 
identity of Samarian and Jew remained even though both were Israel. 
Today Samarians are not considered Israel but only Jews are.

Like the OT is the shadow so also all this is a shadow of the Church of 
God. The false Church of God has two daughters one is the Jewish Church 
identified as northern part Samaria or Aholah and the Church which Paul 
said is the spirit of Anti-Christ known as Aholibah or Jerusalem or 
Sodom. Revelation also calls it as Babylon the Great. We identify this 
Church from its flagship Church which is the Catholic Church.

Aholah means her own tent and the Jewish Church in the name of God made 
man made laws known by them as Law of Moses since they had no wisdom and 
followed the letter but not the understanding. Since they followed the 
letter and were confused they added things to the law and made it worse. 
Jesus said the Jews never knew God or understood His Word. When Paul 
said the Law kills he was referring to the Law of Moses / Jews and when 
he said Law gives life he was referring to the Law of God. In Acts we 
read how Stephen exposed them and thus they stoned him to death.

Aholibah means the tent in the woman. The difference between the first 
and second is the second has made herself god. If you study Catholicism 
you will find the Catholic Church and the prime things of this Church 
like the Pope or its chief deity Mary or its traditions are worshiped as 
god / goddess. Ezekiel also uses the term Sodom for this Church, Sodom 
means burning and refers to lust. From the time this Church started it 
is full of lust and if one goes into the records of doings of its early 
Popes our today's criminal will look like saints before them.

Ezekiel states both are daughters of the Harlot (False Church) with the 
younger being worse than the elder. They were called to be bride of God 
but they both went whoring after idols.

When praying I got toady's message which talks of the sons and daughters 
of Aholah being killed that too on a day known as Holocaust Day for on 
this day about 6 million Jews were killed.

Yesterday a brother into Apologetics was asking me who according to you 
is the worse religion. He was expecting me to say Islam but then he was 
surprised when I said those closest to God / who know Him and yet deny 
Him; spiritual evil is worse than physical evil. Jesus said do not fear 
them that hurt the body. So that puts the Catholics and Jews into the 
worse category. So saving one of them is greater than saving a Muslim.

God has given this message today more as a warning of what is store 
ahead (we see part of it has already started). Bible says the punishment 
of Aholibah would be worse than that of Aholah. If the Jews went through 
great suffering as if today then imagine what is in store for the 
Catholic Church and its denominations like the Orthodox Churches.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, we pray the people in the Catholic Church and the Orthodox wake up 
and their eyes open that they may flee from her and be saved from the 
things set for her. We pray the people be saved and that they be 
instruments to your glory. As You bought us out of her bring them too...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Ezekiel 23:4-10

Ezekiel 16

Isaiah 54:5For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his 
name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole 
earth shall he be called.

Zechariah 5:5-11

Matthew 10:28And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to 
kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul 
and body in hell.

The wonder Prophet of the OT

2 Kings 4:36 And he called Gehazi, and said, Call this Shunammite. So he 
called her. And when she was come in unto him, he said, Take up thy son.

When I see great TV Evangelist, Miracle workers, Healers or Prophets 
today I remember the Prophet Elisha of the OT. There is no Prophet in 
the OT who matches Elisha when it comes to miracles; he even made Moses 
and Elijah look like juniors.

Elijah has 14 miracles /wonders to his credit (as listed in OT) while 
Elisha has 28 miracles/wonders. Among the things Elisha did include 
parting the river Jordan, bringing dead to life, multiplying bread, 
floating iron over water, manifesting the Heavenly Army of Angels, 
healing the sick, blinding a whole army and then restoring their sight. 
What is interesting is even though we have this man with so many wonders 
to his credit yet not once did Jesus mention his name. In fact we see he 
was indirectly rebuked.

Who was Elisha?

Elisha was a disciple of Elijah. He followed Elijah and received his 
double anointing from Elijah. Elisha was a magnification of Elijah or 
enlarged Elijah.

Last time I mentioned of the authority of Hand of Moses' / 'Chair of 
Moses' and the 'Spirit of Elijah'. I mentioned of Moses being the Mary 
of the Catholic Church to the Jews. Something I missed mentioning, like 
Catholics believe that Mary did not bodily die, some Jews believe Moses 
also did not bodily die but experienced assumption (noted in the 
Apocrypha of the Jews). Jews read the OT unlike the Catholics therefore 
do not make images of Moses and worship / give reverence to it like 
Catholics do to Mary but they face the wall of Jerusalem and pray. Also 
like Catholics say prayers on beads (Rosary) Jews instead use leather 
strap to bond their hands and pray (they misquote scriptures to justify 

Spirit of Elijah is a rather deeper topic and it is only by 
understanding it that one will understand why John the Baptist lived a 
life of repentance in the desert and was the best candidate to preach it 
(Elijah came back as John the Baptist as per prophecy). Understand 
repentance is what one does for one's self and no man can repent for 
another. John was no criminal or evil person before his ministry to go 
into a life of repentance; it was this fact why people could not 
understand John's lifestyle.

Even though Elijah was praised as being among the greatest Prophets yet 
he also was the only one rebuked by Jesus. When Jesus' disciples asked 
Jesus to curse and bring fire on the people and consume them for 
rejecting Him like Elijah did, Jesus asked them, what kind of spirit did 
they think He had?

We need to understand how so much ever miracles we may do or operate in 
the highest anointing but if there is no love, mercy and compassion in 
us then all this great work is useless before God. Let us not be like 
Moses or Elijah the two misused Prophets or Prophets who were led to 
make mistakes by the praising and glorification of the people.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You alone are God. Lord the most important and valuable thing for 
You which You lift up above yourself is your Name. You Lord would never 
let your Name be let down. You are perfect and Holy and none can point 
to You for any type of evil. We pray we do not pursue greatness by 
miracle, prophecy, healings, knowledge or any kind of gifts but above 
all pursue your Name. Let us be known your people by your Name...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

What can happen to me?

Jeremiah 13:22 And if thou say in thine heart, Wherefore come these 
things upon me? For the greatness of thine iniquity are thy skirts 
discovered, and thy heels made bare.

There is always the question - the world is so evil and they do so many 
terrible things and I am not so bad, I do wrong but not as much as them, 
so if they do so much evil and God does nothing to them then why would 
God bother about me? He is merciful He understands.

In today's message we see the Israelites called themselves God's people 
and God did appoint them to be His people but even after knowing Him 
they worshipped idols, blasphemed God and let His Name down. In this 
scripture we see God tells them that their bottoms will be exposed 
meaning they will be ashamed and the will be found bare feet meaning 
they will experience hardship in life. The Jewish Targum [meaning 
interpretation of scriptures] states it as 'because thy sins are 
multiplied, thy confusion is revealed, thy shame is seen.'

Understand at times the farmer lets the weeds grow among his harvest for 
by removing them it may harm his crop. But if his crop are rotting or 
getting spoiled he would not have the same attitude as he had to the 
weeds, he will do something to the crop and if he realizes there is no 
fruitfulness in saving the crop, he will cut both and destroy them.

We need to know we are the purpose of this world and God's eyes are 
focused on us. He wants us to be the light of the world and overcome 
darkness. But if we do not do the things we are created for then what is 
the purpose of our existence in this world? Would not God at least show 
what He does to them that deny Him or do things that He hates? He will 
at least make an exhibit of those who have fallen off the path more than 
those who have never known the path so that the next generation fears 
Him and walks in Him ways, like He did with the Israelites in the desert.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, when darkness came into existence You created us to be the light 
that shines in the darkness and which overcomes the darkness. Even when 
man sinned You still cursed evil and said man will crush its head and 
You came as man to enable and lead man to crush the head of evil. You 
Lord are slow to anger and You time and again give us a chance, but when 
we harden our hearts it angers You and causes You to make an exhibit of 
us. You do not like to punish but then your love causes You to chastise 
your children. We pray Lord we do not become like the Israelites who 
became so stiff-necked that their names were not found...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Exodus 33:5For the LORD had said unto Moses, Say unto the children of 
Israel, Ye are a stiffnecked people: I will come up into the midst of 
thee in a moment, and consume thee: therefore now put off thy ornaments 
from thee, that I may know what to do unto thee.

Deuteronomy 9:13-14

13Furthermore the LORD spake unto me, saying, I have seen this people, 
and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

14Let me alone, that I may destroy them, and blot out their name from 
under heaven: and I will make of thee a nation mightier and greater than 

Leviticus 26:13-28

Tamar the wife of Judah

Matthew 1:3 And Judas [Judah] begat Phares and Zara of Thamar [Tamar]; 
and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;

We have many former Muslims who have accepted Christ after they studied 
the character of Mohammad and compared it with the character of Jesus. 
They have seen through their own scriptures how their prophet was a man 
full of sexual desires and a person who did not have any dignity or 
values to justify his pervert, deprave sexual desires in the name of 
Allah a character whom he created.

Some of them include his marriage to a six year old girl Aisha and his 
sexual relationship with her when she was nine years old. People think 
he waited till she grew up of age (according to the traditions at that 
time) to have relationship with her, but that is false. He married her 
and desired to have relationship with her when she was yet six but since 
she suffered for a rash on her head and he feared he would get it, he 
waited for three year (but during this time he still molested her). 
Another of his pervert ventures was his marriage to his own daughter in 
law Zaynab (married to Zayd ibn Harithah, a person he considered as his 
own son), who was so beautiful that he could not take his eyes off her. 
Mohammad had set as taboo to have relationship with close family members 
so he was deprived by his own law to marry or have relationship with his 
daughter in law. So as usual in the name of his Allah he claimed that 
Allah made all women legal for him to marry and even the numbers were 
not restricted for him unlike for others officially four (unofficially 
they too can have more under temporary contract or as slaves). So he 
first made his son to divorce his wife and then he got married to her. 
The concept of Hijab (Burka) came afterwards when other people started 
starring at his wives (mainly Zaynab who was very beautiful and whom he 
himself used to stare at before he married her).

Why am I talking of this today. Like the story Mohammad and Zaynab we 
have a story in the Bible and that too in the genealogy of Jesus, we 
have the story of Judah and Thamar. Was Judah like Mohammad?

Let us understand the background to understand why this happened. Tamar 
was the daughter in law of Judah married to Er his first son. But since 
Er who was wicked he was killed by the Lord and he did not have children 
so as per the belief of the Israelites the brother had to marry his 
widow sister in law and have children else she would be termed as cursed 
since any married woman without child would be termed as cursed of God. 
Also the children out of this relationship would legally not be his own 
but of his deceased brother. So Judah’s other son Onan marries Tamar and 
he has relationship with her but then Onan realizes the child would not 
be his thus he does not allow her to conceive. This angered God and Onan 
too was killed.

Judah then promises Tamar the marriage of his younger son Shelah who at 
that time was not of age, so she had to wait for him to be off age. But 
when Shelah was of age Judah does not remember or fulfill his promise 
(it is not written why he did not do it).

There comes an incident when one of Judah’s daughters dies and he was 
full of grief. Around that time he goes out rearing his sheep. Tamar to 
take revenge and protect her dignity removes her widow’s clothes, goes 
out and sits on the pathway of her father in law covering her face like 
a harlot. Judah, being full of grief requests the harlot if he could 
have relationship with her and she agrees on certain condition of 
repayment. Later when Judah goes to fulfill his dues towards her he does 
not find her. It is after three months of Tamar conceiving twins from 
her relationship that Judah comes to know that it was Tamar who played 
the Harlot. Initially Judah goes to kill Tamar for deceiving him but 
then realizes he had failed to keep his promise so does not.

We need to note Judah had not willingly had relationship with Tamar but 
was deceived by her. Tamar to protect her dignity deceived her father in 
law so as to become a mother. We may feel very awful that the Lord Jesus 
Christ allowed such an incident and that too among his genealogy but it 
is only when one goes by the deeper understanding of the belief at that 
time that one realizes that this was not a taboo as it would be 
considered now.

The law of incest being a taboo came later to this incident by the hand 
of Moses, before that we have many cases like Abraham and Sahara (who 
was his niece) or even Adam and Eve (who was made of his own rib), even 
the sons of Adam married their own sister (who are not named) to 
reproduce and multiply as commanded by the Lord.

Secondly a marriage is considered complete only when the woman bears a 
child. That is why Israelites had the custom of the brother marrying his 
sister in law in case her husband dies and they did not have a child.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are God, You are True and Your Word is True. You and your Word, 
Lord are eternal and do not change for what is perfect cannot be 
bettered. In your Word all things are set plain and have not been 
changed across time to please man or the limited understanding of man. 
We pray Lord your people understand the Truth of your Word...

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Genesis 38:6-27

Ruth 4:10-12

10Moreover Ruth the Moabitess, the wife of Mahlon, have I purchased to 
be my wife, to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that 
the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, and from 
the gate of his place: ye are witnesses this day.

11And all the people that were in the gate, and the elders, said, We are 
witnesses. The LORD make the woman that is come into thine house like 
Rachel and like Leah, which two did build the house of Israel: and do 
thou worthily in Ephratah, and be famous in Bethlehem:

12And let thy house be like the house of Pharez, whom Tamar bare unto 
Judah, of the seed which the LORD shall give thee of this young woman.

Matthew 22:23-28

23The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no 
resurrection, and asked him,

24Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his 
brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

25Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had 
married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his 

26Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.

27And last of all the woman died also.

28Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? 
for they all had her.

When will there be peace?

Psalms 37:10, 11 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: 
yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. But 
the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the 
abundance of peace.

When I was not in the Lord and when people in Christ told me there would 
be peace like spoken in today's message, it gave me a lot of hope. After 
I came in the Lord and now that many years have passed yet I have not 
seen the peace which they spoke of or as mentioned in today's scripture. 
Yes internally I did experience peace from day one of accepting Christ 
but the situation became opposite externally. Previous worldly people 
who were good to me also turned to be either cutting off relationship or 
coming against me. But then their success rate of attack grew lesser by 
the day for the Lord protects me, but their hate increases even though 
they do not show on the face, also at time unwillingly they favor me for 
the Lord sets a banquet table for us before our enemies.

This scripture was written by David who was born in 900BC approx. (907BC 
according to the Jews) and lived for about 70 years. It is almost 3000 
years since this scripture and we are yet to see it fulfill. Yes the 
world did experience a period of no major war anywhere in the world 
during the time of Jesus (that's what a Bible historian stated). The 
Israelites and Romans too concentrated on building infrastructure and 
monuments during that time since there was peace in the land. i.e. 
Augustus the Roman Caesar at that time who would always have about 60 
legions battle ready chose to demobilize most of them and kept only 28 
active. He even had a record of winning a 'battle' without bloodshed.

Jesus said the world will hate us for it hated Him first, He also warned 
of persecution that will come. The Bible has N number of prophecies that 
speak of human and natural calamities that have just passed and are yet 
to come to pass. So in all this, where is the peace?

If one studies the stages of the Church of Christ it does speak of peace 
throughout the world before the great Day of the Lord that's when Satan 
is set loose and there is untold suffering just before Christ returns. 
But this peace is a false peace which Paul and Jesus warns of (the Day 
will come like a thief). If one studies the 'Mark of the Beast' one will 
know more of how this peace is achieved or enforced.

In short until Judgment Day we do not see any world peace. So as 
Christians let us not be deceived to pursue world peace. Christians who 
hold prayer services for world peace are telling God to edit His Word 
and come with a new edition.

We can pray for local peace, peace in our neighborhood and peace over 
Christians but world peace is not in the dictionary of a Christian. For 
a Christian peace in all areas will only be received in the Father's House.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are Light and You created this world and man when You saw 
darkness. You created man so that those who are yours may be a light to 
shine and overcome the darkness. We pray Lord your people realized we 
cannot rest or be under falsehood of peace until the darkness completely 
destroyed. We wait for the head of evil is crushed my man led by the 
Chief Prince our Savior when He comes again...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 24

1 Thessalonians 5:3For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then 
sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; 
and they shall not escape.

Evil in the name of Christ

Jeremiah 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible 
thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the 
hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are 
all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

When we see Islamic terror we look at those who go out and shoot and 
kill people in the name of Allah, those who blow themselves up and kill 
others shouting 'Allah hu akbar'.But people do not see the more evil 
ones who exist in the background, the people who were responsible to 
brainwash these people and send them on these missions. The real 
terrorist are not the people who kill or blow themselves up, the real 
terrorist are those in Mosques and street corners who brainwash youth 
into violence.

People think Islam is peaceful the reason is because most Muslims do not 
true follow Islam. True Islam is Jihad which simply means any means of 
violence justified for expansion of the faith. And even after a person 
becomes a Muslim they still have Sharia to destroy them. In short, in or 
out it is death that is propagated.

The same situation exists in Christianity but in the opposite state and 
in greater dimension. True Christianity is peaceful but false 
Christianity is more violent than Islam. An Islamist kills the body but 
false Christian kills the spirit.

Jesus said do not fear them that hurt our natural body. Life and death 
of this natural body is in the hand of God. If we are in the Lord then 
unless the Lord does not allow, no person, no sickness, no disease can 
touch us or hurt us in any way. If we are not in the Lord then we are 
open to attacks. But all this is concerning our natural life and natural 
death is not actual death, it is just exit from this world and this live 
is not even a few minutes of the real movie. But our spirit life is in 
our hands for God has given us the authority to choose life or death 
that does not mean we die immediately.

Our natural lives are a few decades while our spirit life is 
millenniums(thousands) of years that's if we do not go to Heaven and go 
to Hell (where we suffer our sins), but if we go to Heaven we will be 
able to live eons (millions) of years for we will have access to the 
Tree of Life. The Psalmist wrote it is better to live a day in the House 
of the Lord than a thousand year (away from Him), he did not say this 
because he was ready to die but contrary to it. He knew a day in the 
Lord in this life would give him eons of years in his spirit life. He 
was ready to sacrifice this life for the real life.

Last time we got this same scripture was on 14th Feb which is celebrated 
as 'Valentine's Day' and the Lord alerted us about this false church, of 
how it was promoting evil in the name of goodness. We saw about the two 
Jerusalems in the Hebrew text and how one represented the true Church 
and the other the false Church.

Just yesterday I was debating (actually we did not even get started) 
with 'Catholic Apologist' (there were 2 of them) and when I started 
reasoning through scripture or history the person started playing dirty 
with personal remarks and name calling. When they were cornered they 
said 'I am a Catholic and will die a Catholic'.

When I was a Catholic and was brainwashed into believing that this 
Church was taking me to the Lord like they were it was the Lord who 
opened my eyes to show me where this Church was taking me. I had to face 
great difficulties and resistance to come out of that Church. But it was 
love for real life that gave me the courage to face them.

When we love God we love life and vice-versa. Walking in the way of the 
Lord leads us to eternal life and walking contrary to Him is walking 
towards death and suffering.

Lord is today making us aware of the greater terrorist who looks 
peaceful and comes as Angel of Light but is more evil than Islam, or 
Atheism, or any worldly cult, or worldly evil, for they speak the name 
of the Lord but promote deep evil. Yesterday we were told of the meaning 
of being young and Ezekiel 23:12 tells us this false church loves 
fellowship (worldly), rulers (power), prosperity (worldly) and young men 
(spiritually young). It is only spiritual maturity which will help us 
overcome this evil Church.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord You are Almighty and all-knowing God and nothing is hidden from 
You. You Lord have kept this evil from overflowing its banks so that it 
does not destroy your people. Now that You have given us your Word and 
your Spirit, You are exposing this evil for us to overcome and destroy 
from its roots. You have appointed mere man to overcome the Angels that 
fell. It is only by You in us and we in your Name that we will crush the 
head of evil. Lord we pray for those who are yours and are still under 
deceit of this woman, we pray for their deliverance...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Jeremiah 4:14O Jerusalem <03389>, wash thine heart from wickedness, that 
thou mayest be saved. How long shall thy vain thoughts lodge within thee?

Psalms 9:16The LORD is known by the judgment he executeth: the wicked is 
snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion [meaning meditation 
music]. Selah [caution].

Ezekiel 23:2-12

2Son of man, there were two women, the daughters of one mother:

3And they committed whoredoms in Egypt; they committed whoredoms in 
their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised 
the teats of their virginity.

4And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her sister: 
and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus were their 
names; Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.

5And Aholah played the harlot when she was mine; and she doted on her 
lovers, on the Assyrians her neighbours,

6Which were clothed with blue, captains and rulers, all of them 
desirable young men, horsemen riding upon horses.

7Thus she committed her whoredoms with them, with all them that were the 
chosen men of Assyria, and with all on whom she doted: with all their 
idols she defiled herself.

8Neither left she her whoredoms brought from Egypt: for in her youth 
they lay with her, and they bruised the breasts of her virginity, and 
poured their whoredom upon her.

9Wherefore I have delivered her into the hand of her lovers, into the 
hand of the Assyrians, upon whom she doted.

10These discovered her nakedness: they took her sons and her daughters, 
and slew her with the sword: and she became famous among women; for they 
had executed judgment upon her.

11 And when her sister Aholibah saw this, she was more corrupt in her 
inordinate love than she, and in her whoredoms more than her sister in 
her whoredoms.

12She doted upon the Assyrians her neighbours, captains and rulers 
clothed most gorgeously, horsemen riding upon horses, all of them 
desirable young men.

Good to be youth?

Isaiah 40:30 [HCSB] Youths may faint and grow weary, and young men 
stumble and fall,

I took today's message from the Holman Christian Standard Bible [HCSB] 
which is a literate translation like the KJV since I found it more 
accurate in this scripture by referring to the WTT William Tindale 
Translation - Hebrew text. Why? Because I found the other start with the 
word 'even' although it is not part of the scripture, also the word in 
the Greek [BGT] version of the Old Testament is 'and'. There is a 
difference between 'and' and 'even'.

Today's message talks of the youth. We see most people love to be called 
youth or a young person, but as Christians should we pursue youthfulness?

Who is a youth? Youth is a person growing up, a person who is maturing, 
a person who is juggling between instincts and experience.

Why then are people attracted to being youthful? Because we visualize a 
youth as a healthy person, full of energy and in prime stage of beauty. 
We see the external more than the internal.

Today the Lord is saying if remain youth spiritually we will grow faint 
and weary and may stumble and fall.

Let us not look at our physical body for a Christian is not a person of 
bones and flesh but more a person of spirit and understanding. If God 
could keep Moses in a very fit condition to be able to climb mountains 
even at an age of 120, then our natural body should not hinder us. When 
we are more in the Lord and our spirit is of age our natural body will 
always be fit.But if we are not in the Lord then even if we are fit in 
the body but our spirit not of age then we will surely stumble and fall.

Let us not pursue the things concerning the natural body but pursue 
things concerning the spiritual body. Let us no longer remain young in 

God is called 'ancient one' not because He is old. We see Catholics 
picture Him as a strong old man. Can an eternal being be of age? God's 
wisdom, knowledge and understanding cannot be measured nor comprehended. 
Leave God even we, when we are in Heaven will be ageless for we will be 
recipients to eternal life (renewal of life via the Tree of Life as and 
when needed).

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are Spirit and desire your people to be led by the Spirit. We 
pray Lord we overcome the flesh and pursue not the things of the flesh 
but pursue things of the Spirit. May we daily see how healthy or 
beautiful our spirit is in the mirror of your Word, more than we see the 
fitness and beauty of our natural body in the worldly mirror...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Isaiah 40:30 [KJV-AV] 30Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and 
the young men shall utterly fall:

Revelation 22:2In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of 
the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of 
fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree 
were for the healing of the nations.

Revelation 2:7He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith 
unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree 
of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

By the hand of Moses

Joshua 20:2 Speak to the children of Israel, saying, Appoint out for you 
cities of refuge, whereof I spake unto you by the hand of Moses:

In the Bible among all the Prophets of the Old Testament there are 2 
Prophets who stand out, one is Moses and the other Elijah (in Greek 
Elias). Both these Men of God had something special concerning them even 
after their death or exit from this earth. When Moses died the Lord hid 
his body and none could find his body. Elijah on the other hand did not 
die; he came back as John the Baptist and then died but before death he 
lived a life of repentance from day one of his ministry as if he was a 
grave sinner before (one cannot repent for others).

In the case of both these Prophets we have some special mentions of 
them. In case of Elijah we have the term used 'spirit of Elijah' which 
we will not find such term mentioned for any other Prophet. In case of 
Moses like in today's scripture we find a mention 'by the hand of Moses' 
that too after his death. The term 'by the hand of Moses' means 'by the 
power of Moses' or 'in the authority of Moses'.

Give it a thought should not the Lord have had Joshua speak in His Name 
like He caused all the other Prophets or Men of God to do instead of 
asking him to do in the authority of Moses. What was so special of Moses 
with the Israelites / Jews? In the NT this relationship between Moses 
and the Jews is exposed. When Jesus confronted the Jews they claimed 
they were the 'disciples of Moses'. Moses never made any disciple yet 
these people called themselves as his disciples. The only person who 
could remotely claim to the disciple of Moses would have been Joshua and 
yet we see Jews even after many, many generations called themselves 
disciples of Moses.

Another factor concerning Moses is revealed with the death of Stephen. 
Before the Jews stoned him they had bought him before the people on 
accusation of blasphemy against Moses and against God. Note the order of 
the names they put the name of Moses before the name of the Lord. Also 
note one cannot be accused of blasphemy towards a man but only against 
God, one can be accused of slander or defamation against man but 
blasphemy meant they had made Moses into an idol, a god. When Jesus 
spoke about people disrespecting Him or His name, even though being Lord 
but as man He did not use the term blasphemy for Himself.

Just a few days back someone was telling me about Catholics in an area. 
The Pastor said if anyone spoke against Jesus not one would even raise 
an eyelid but if that person spoke against Mary then the Catholics would 
pounce on that person like a lion on its prey. This is evident with most 
Catholics. Why I am talking this now simply because Moses is the Mary of 
the Jews. That person lifted above God and worshipped even though they 
both deny doing so.

Only credit one can take for good works is not for the works but only 
for surrender, surrendering to God to do His mighty works through one 
self. But when it comes to the opposite that is works of evil we cannot 
blame God for from God no evil come for He is a Holy God. It is our 
corruption that causes the evil in us to manifest.

We as Believers (Protestants) may not have a problem with Moses or with 
Mary but we could be having our own Moses or Mary by putting a person of 
God at the level of God or even higher. For when anything spoke by that 
person and contradict scripture we yet chose to follow that person. Let 
us understand God is God and whatever be the things that God does via a 
person we should not lift that person or glorify the person. We can only 
bless that person for the works God has done through him or her (that 
too when the person is alive not after the person dies).

When Jesus transfigured He could have spoken any person from Noah to 
David or Joel but He chose to speak to Moses and Elijah only. He did 
this not because Moses or Elijah were among the greatest among those who 
slept in the Lord. If you see when God had to give sample names for 
righteous men (those who had right standing in Him) He did not name 
Abraham (father of faith), Moses (mighty leader), David (man according 
to the heart of God), Elijah (mighty works) or any of the so called 
'Major Prophets' or 'Patriarchs' but He named people like Noah, Job and 
Daniel. God looks at consistency and dedication in small things more 
than once a while mighty works.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we praise and thank You that You have chosen mere man to shame the 
Angels who fell off line. We thank You for using the willing to do the 
mighty works and using us as vessels for your holy work. We pray Lord we 
always remember it is You and not us or any other man or woman that are 
to be glorified for the great works...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Acts 6:11 Then they suborned men, which said, We have heard him speak 
blasphemous words against Moses, and against God.

Acts 6:13 And set up false witnesses, which said, This man ceaseth not 
to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:

Luke 12:10 And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it 
shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy 
Ghost it shall not be forgiven.

2 Kings 2:15And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at 
Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. 
And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.

John 1:19-23

19And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites 
from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?

20And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.

21And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. 
Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.

22Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to 
them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?

23He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight 
the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.

Matthew 11:11-15

11Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath

suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

13For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.

14And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.

15He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Matthew 17:2-3

2And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, 
and his raiment was white as the light.

they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith 
the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 14:20Though Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live, saith 
the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither son nor daughter; they shall 
but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.

The power of the Saints

Psalms 149:5-9

5Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

6Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in 
their hand;

7To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;

8To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

9To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his 
saints. Praise ye the LORD.

Today's message talks of the Saints of the Lord; these are not dead 
people the Psalm is talking of but people who are alive. Although verse 
5 talks of beds, the Hebrew word does not actually mean bed but means to 
lying down but not be asleep (act as lying). The word translated as 
Saints is the word that also means faithful, godly, holy ones, pious. 
The Lord is telling us about the person He spoke of in our last message 
a person who is right (righteous) according to the Lord.

The Psalm talks of Saints / Men of God being at ease and not being 
worked up for they rest in the Lord. Everything that they desire or need 
gets done effortless. Verse 6 speaks of the twoedged sword in their hand 
which is authority like that of the Word. The next 3 verses tell us what 
this authority is for. In Hebrews the writer talks of the power of the 
Word of God which pierces deep within and separates the bone (joint) 
from the marrow that is the nature / character from the spirit.

A Pastor asked me some time back why point to the problems of the 
leaders (Pastors); what can we as Men of God do?

Today's message says when we truly are Men of God we weld the powers 
that allows us to quicken either blessings or the judgment of God. We as 
men of God do not judge but become instruments of executing judgment 
that is only when we are truly led in the spirit.

There was an incident many years back that taught me as to when and for 
what to weld our powers as Men of God. There was a heathen festival of 
an idol celebrated very grand in Mumbai which angered me very much for 
the whole city is engulfed in celebrating it. So whenever it came I 
would ask the Lord (in my heart) to exercise His wrath and let them see 
who really is God. This happened over two to three years, but then one 
year I really desired will all my heart and even spoke it out and 
another brother with me said Amen. Then I got a message that our prayer 
was answered and I was given details of the kind of disaster that was on 
its way. This happened a few weeks later and I myself was almost trapped 
into this disaster but was saved in a miraculous way. The disaster did 
great calamity but at the end of it the Lord showed me I did not gain 
anything from all this for the people were so stiff-necked that over the 
few next year they turned back to their old ways. The Lord also showed 
me at the end I was a loser in all this for there is a system in the 
spirit world of gain and loss which I was made aware of (Paul and others 
talks of it as collecting great riches in Heaven).

Let us as Men of God know that we represent a Living God who is All 
Powerful but above let us exhibit His Nature. Like yesterday's message 
spoke of a righteous person as a person having strong faith, a person 
who keeps oneself holy, a person is totally devoted to the Lord, a 
person who is a true disciple and a person who keeps oneself pure. So 
let us not exercise authority just by our strong faith without first 
exercising holiness, longsuffering, devoutness, discipleship and purity.

It is time we change things like it was in the times of the Patriarchs 
especially the times of Samuel where the glory of God was very visible 
and no man doubted the existence of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob 
and the fear of God was even among those who hated Him.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we pray that the Men of God truly become Men of God walking in 
righteousness and exercising authority and glorifying You. We pray 
Christians are seen as worshippers of the True Living God of Abraham, 
Isaac and Jacob. Let your glory be manifested throughout this land and 
fear of You be seen even among those who hate You. Let no man say You do 
not exist and let no man say there is another god other than You...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper 
than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul 
and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the 
thoughts and intents of the heart.

Daniel 3:28Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the God of 
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered 
his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and 
yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, 
except their own God.

1 Samuel 5:5-10

5Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon's 
house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day.

6But the hand of the LORD was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he 
destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts 

7And when the men of Ashdod saw that it was so, they said, The ark of 
the God of Israel shall not abide with us: for his hand is sore upon us, 
and upon Dagon our god.

8They sent therefore and gathered all the lords of the Philistines unto 
them, and said, What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel? And 
they answered, Let the ark of the God of Israel be carried about unto 
Gath. And they carried the ark of the God of Israel about thither.

9And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the 
LORD was against the city with a very great destruction: and he smote 
the men of the city, both small and great, and they had emerods in their 
secret parts.

10Therefore they sent the ark of God to Ekron. And it came to pass, as 
the ark of God came to Ekron, that the Ekronites cried out, saying, They 
have brought about the ark of the God of Israel to us, to slay us and 
our people.

1 Samuel 7:10And as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the 
Philistines drew near to battle against Israel: but the LORD thundered 
with a great thunder on that day upon the Philistines, and discomfited 
them; and they were smitten before Israel.

1 Samuel 12:18So Samuel called unto the LORD; and the LORD sent thunder 
and rain that day: and all the people greatly feared the LORD and Samuel.

Who is He?

Sun Apr 10, 2016 8:45 pm (PDT) . Posted by:

[]"SavedByFaith_info" savedbyfaithinfo[/email]

Who is He?

Isaiah 54:5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his 
name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole 
earth shall he be called.

If you want to see Christians get into a brawl just take up a topic like 
baptism, gift of tongues, second coming, Law in OT v/s NT, Trinity etc. 
Christians will soon show their unchristian behavior in no time.

I know of 'Word rooted Church' which does a lot of Biblical study 
(including Hebrew and Greek) in fact they have a Bible college / classes 
running from their premises. The people out there are very sweet and 
outgoing to help others. But when you get into their understanding of 
the Word you will find they worship a God who is not alive or other 
words they do not worship a Living God. The difference between them and 
Hinduism is they are historical and theological accurate in their belief 
but with regards to the ones they worship there is no difference, both 
are inactive and both do not manifest themselves. This Church does not 
believe in gifts of the Holy Spirit nor healings by laying of hands nor 
deliverance. All that was okay to some extend but just 2 days back I 
heard from reliable person one that a member from their Church was 
wanting to suicide and the person had share this with the Pastor and the 
Pastor did not say anything. When the sister who told me this confronted 
the Pastor, he said 'the person believes in Christ therefore will go to 
Heaven, thus why worry?' The doctrine of once saved forever saved.

People have lots of understandings but their basics are not in place. It 
is true none can say he or she knows everything, nor did Paul say 
anytime he knew everything but none could question what he already knew 
for what he knew was confirmed from all directions.

The difference between Paul and us is that when Paul taught about Christ 
he taught from the Old Testament. Not only Paul even Jesus preached 
about Himself from the Old Testament. They did not need the New 
Testament (events) very much. Ask any Christian to preach the Gospel, 
forget about preaching Christ and the Cross from the Old Testament and 
you will find none. You will hardly find 1 or 2 in thousands who would 
be able to do that.

Today's message no one will deny is about the Lord Jesus Christ. But 
when one notes down the attributes given to Him we see

1) He is called the Maker / Creator

2) He is called our Husband (Bride)

3) He is called Lord of Hosts (Heavenly Angels)

4) He is called our Redeemer

5) He is called the Holy One of Israel

6) God of the whole world

If you take these attributes then what is left for the Father and the 
Holy Spirit? People would say they too hold common attributes since 
there is oneness in them.

My journey to knowing more of God started with trying to identify when 
the word 'Lord' was used in the English Bible, to whom was it actually 
refer to and this started with New Testament scriptures stating Lord 
Jesus Christ was active in the Old Testament. Then going into Hebrew 
words using Strong (system of numbering Biblical Hebrew and Greek words) 
I learnt quiet some amazing facts. At that moment I thought I knew it, 
but then more complex questions arose and I started getting more and 
more deep into researching this mater. Even today I cannot say I know 
everything but then I can surely say what I know is for sure true for I 
take only things which I confirmed by every angle and for me today's 
scripture is easily understood.

Let us not be people who worship a god but let us be people who worship 
the Living God who was, is and will be the only God. A God to whom when 
someone asked His Name, He said 'I AM WHO I AM'. We may keep knowing and 
learning more and more about Him but if He is not manifested Him and His 
glory in us then can we say we worship a Living God.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we pray your people be known by You and not by their beliefs or 
traditions. May they manifest your Glory and not make You into another 
god of this world who is inactive and as one who observes and rarely 
does anything and what they do is also through human ways or by chance. 
You are Lord of the Living and not of the dead for You are a Living God 
and your people manifest life. We pray people may see your glory with 
naked eyes like they did in the Old Testament...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Luke 24:27And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto 
them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

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

Acts 28:23And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him 
into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, 
persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out 
of the prophets, from morning till evening.

Acts 17:10-11

10And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto 
Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews.

11These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they 
received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the 
scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

Acts 18:28For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publickly, 
shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.

Romans 15:4For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for 
our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures 
might have hope.

Romans 16:26But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the 
prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made 
known to all nations for the obedience of faith:

1 Corinthians 15:3For I delivered unto you first of all that which I 
also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the 

2 Peter 3:16As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these 
things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that 
are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, 
unto their own destruction.

R.D SOUZA Saved by faith  - Page 22 Empty Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Sat 09 Apr 2016, 10:20 pm

Come in righteousness

Songs of Solomon 4:8 Come with me from Lebanon, my spouse, with me from 
Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, 
from the lions' dens, from the mountains of the leopards.

Like I stated in my previous messages it is only when we get into 
meanings of the words, its root words and symbolism (of the 
object/living being), can we understand the actual meaning of the 
scriptures of book of Songs of Solomon.

Let me put the main words below

Lebanon - means righteousness

Amana - means support and also implies faith

Shenir - means snow Mountains and symbolizes holiness

Hermon - means devotion

Lion - the animal symbolizes righteousness but the word comes from the 
root word 'plucking', 'gathering grapes' which symbolize discipleship.

Leopard - comes the root word which means purity

In today's message the Lord talks of righteousness and how one can be 
righteous. People think talking of God (good talks), being prayerful and 
acting religious or doing good deed will make them righteous people. 
This has caused many to be stage actors in the Church or in the world. 
They fool people with their righteousness and thus misled people from 
following God, leading them to play 'Christianity' the religion.

Today's message talks of a righteous person as a person having strong 
faith, a person who keeps oneself holy, a person is totally devoted to 
the Lord, a person who is a true disciple and a person who keeps oneself 

To have faith one needs right understanding of the Word of God and about 
the Kingdom of God and when one 'knows' then there is no chance of the 
person denying it or changing one's mind i.e. to have faith in God one 
needs to truly experience Him, else it is hope and not faith.

Holiness means being separated to the Lord. There is a difference 
between being pure and being holy. A holy person is one who is set to do 
the works of the Lord. A holy vessel was a vessel which was used only 
for the works of the Tabernacle. We are called to be a holy nation that 
does not mean we are called to do nothing else other than the Lord's 
work. We can see an example in Paul who did business of making and 
selling tents yet set himself to be holy unto the Lord. Being holy means 
not having any other god or gods in one's life that includes not just 
idols and material things but also personal desires or relationships.

Being devoted means being diligent and perseverant in doing the work of 
the Kingdom of God. It does not mean once a week or once a month but 
means daily and consistently.

Discipleship can be understood by study of grapes and by it one will 
know why fresh grape juice (and not wine) is synonymous to being 
Christian. It calls for being sober, longsuffering (not suffering for 
long time but more of not losing control, being patient while having 
faith), self-sacrifice etc.

Purity can be understood by understanding the Temple that is the Body as 
a place of the Lord, this includes our personal bodies as well as 
collectively which is the Church.

The Lord is telling us if we have the above in place then we can 
consider ourselves as righteous people.

I may have shared this before a 'righteous' person I know, a person who 
is devote 'Christian' (goes regular to church and active in church and 
in church fellowships even at her old age) and very sweet person in 
talking, smiles always and helps the needy, a person who cannot harm 
anyone. Such a person one may say God must be looking at and smiling and 
being pleased with, but it shook me when He showed me how He saw that 
person. He showed me as a thin, sick street dog infected with gross skin 
disease. What the person did not have was true faith and she did not 
give importance to the Word of God; due to that all the so called 
goodness in her was not on the right path.

God made me to be family, to be like Him.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we pray we do not have a false righteousness in us. We pray we 
pursue righteousness according to You and not according to man's 
understanding. We pray we walk in your ways and not in the ways of man 
for the ways are evil even though they may look good...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

R.D SOUZA Saved by faith  - Page 22 Empty Re: R.D SOUZA Saved by faith

Post  Admin on Fri 08 Apr 2016, 9:14 pm

The simple minded shall see vanity

Proverbs 1:32, 33 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and
the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. But whoso hearkeneth unto me
shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

Since these few days many of my messages have been related to sin and sin
nature. I have had about 2-3 persons who have been questioning me as to why
I take such negative topics. There was one sister who advised me to be
‘Christ conscious’ and not preach about sin.

When Jesus Christ started preaching He started with talking of repentance.
John the Baptist who Jesus said at that time was greatest amongst the Men
of God and he too preached about repentance. People think repentance is
about change of heart and that is the first mistake they make. The Hebrew
word means sorrow and the Greek word comes from the root words ‘not’ and
‘understand’. It speaks of a misled person who returns back to his path
after having the right understanding.

Today Christians are not Christians because preachers do not preach about
sin and repentance. Preachers are marketing Christianity like a salesman
markets his products. They talk only about the USP (Unique Selling
Proposition / Points) that is blessings, healings, abundance, fellowship,
joy etc.

Bible does not say Jesus came for these things but says He came primarily
to pay the price of sin (penalty of sin / eternal death) in our lives and
to make peace between God and man, the USPs are secondary and just benefits
of that peace.

The messages I write on daily are not intentionally selected by me but are
done in the Urim and the Thummim manner (which I explained in one of my
earlier message). Even this message was selected in the same manner. The
timings and at times the prophetic nature of the message assure they are
not humanly possible.

We Christians are called not to be fools but be wise. If we are given the
Spirit of Truth / Wisdom who leds us to all understanding then how can we
be foolish. The scripture God chooses the fools of this world to withstand
the wise of this world. The scripture does not talk of foolish people but
talks of those who deny the gods of this world.

God gives us His Word for a fool it may seem simple but for a wise it is
like a land that has treasure in it. Like Jesus says the wise sells all he
holds to buy the land, dig deep and lay hold of its treasure.

In the New Testament Jesus, Paul and others time and again tell us to
beware (be aware) of man, false prophets, teachings of this world, worldly
friends [dogs], evil workers, worldly traditions, of Satan and his ways.

If we are called to be aware of all these things can we do that without
having basic understanding? We are not called to do a Phd on them but at
least know their intensions so as to discern them.

Today’s message talks of the foolhardy who run after the USP of being
Christian, they are the ones the Lord says who may not last the race and
may become victims of vanity.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord, You are Almighty and Omnipotent. Your wisdom can not be comprehended.
We who are your children and made in your image are also called to be like
You able to do all things and knowing all things when we are in You. Lord,
we pray your people shine with knowledge and understanding, that they do
not have ‘blind faith’ for faith and authority (perfect faith) comes with

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s
clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Matthew 10:17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the
councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;

Matthew 16:6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven
of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

Blind not sinners!

John 9:40,41 And some of the Pharisees which were with him heard these
words, and said unto him, Are we blind also? Jesus said unto them, If ye
were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your
sin remaineth.

In today’s message Jesus uses very interesting words ‘if you were blind,
you should have no sin’. He then goes on to say ‘because you say you see,
therefore your sin is held against you’.

In my early days of becoming Christian I had many questions with regards to
sin, none of the preachers or books could answer all my questions. A
scripture like today would have been a shaker/shocker had the Lord not
cleared most of my doubts with regards to sin.

A preacher would say we are held guilty because we know and yet sin, so
then I would have raised the question those who do not read the Bible and
have not heard about it should be sinless.

It is not necessary if A is the opposite of B and C is the opposite of A
then it implies B is equal to C.

Paul defines sin as the result of the Law. Had God not given the Law then
man would not have been a sinner. God told Adam not to eat of the Tree of
Good and Bad but when Adam did eat he became a sinner. We see it was Eve
who ate first and God had not told Eve about not eating of that tree it was
Adam who told Eve about it and yet Eve was found guilty of breaking the

We also need to be aware Satan existed before the Law / Command was given
to Adam. In Genesis 1 & 2 all God created He said was good and when Adam
and Eve ate of the ‘Tree of Good and Evil’ the only thing ‘Evil’ that
existed was Satan. Before they ate / broke the Law they were innocent of
Satan (his ways). God created the Cherub who became Satan and father of all
evil, but yet God is Holy.

Direct or indirect knowledge of the Law is sufficient to hold the person to
that Law. This knowledge can be first hand or inherited genetically (not
biologically but spiritually) from ancestors. Most people do not need to be
told lying or killing a human is bad because this information is inherited
genetically like skills or sicknesses are.

In the Kingdom of God all those who are blind to the Truth or lethargic in
their spiritual life will not inherit the Kingdom of God, in other words
will not enter Heaven. But no one can say they are blind to evil for our
ancestors ate of the Tree of Good and Bad and have known evil. Bible says
all are found guilty that all includes even an infant that is just born.

Let us not be foolish to think if I do not read and study the Word I would
not know or be held guilty of not being compliant to it. Understand by
knowing the Word of God and abiding by it not only enables us and assures
us to enter Heaven but also takes us to higher positions in Heaven. It is
like joining a company at ground root level and growing through hard work
and efforts or joining the company directly at top positions in the start
itself. Let me tell you things are easier here then there where all are

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we pray we are not deceived by ignorance for no man is ignorant of sin
and its consequence which is death. Lord we pray your people pursue the
Word like vitamin to a body to strengthen the spirit and enable it to be
exceedingly fruitful. We pray like Paul we run the race aiming for the high

This prayer we make in Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Genesis 2:15-17

15 And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to
dress it and to keep it.

16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden
thou mayest freely eat:

17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat
of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Genesis 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was
very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Genesis 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us,
to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also
of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

1 Corinthians 9:24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but
one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

2 Timothy 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of 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.

James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is
tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to
them that love him.

Generation of vipers!

Matthew 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good 
things? for out of the abundance of the heart [nature] the mouth speaketh.

One is judged for one's actions but imagine someone judging our 
generations by our actions! Note here we are not talking of any ordinary 
person who is making this statement; we have the Lord Jesus Christ 
making this statement of calling a person's generation as vipers [wicked 
people] that too looking at the actions of those who were standing 
before Him.

Yesterday a brother was arguing with me on sin that when we come in the 
Lord our sins are blotted away and we become sinless so hence forth we 
are not sinners.

To understand sin and sacrifice we need to study from the books of Moses 
for the Lord fulfilled all those sacrifices in Him.

In the book of Moses if a man sinned accordingly he or she had to offer 
a sacrifice for his or her sins. The sacrifice was an earthly sacrifice 
and done after the person repented and was punished or was healed of 
that sickness. The sacrifice / offering were done later because it was 
after confirmation that the Lord's anger was not still on that person.

In the case of us, Jesus was our peace sacrifice / wave sacrifice by His 
hanging on the cross. Since He made peace between God and man, the wrath 
of the Lord on us (who believe in Christ) is already taken away thus the 
sacrifice for sins or sicknesses can be in advance and does not 
necessary need to be after. Bible states the sacrifice of Christ as an 
eternal sacrifice not just across generations but across our life time, 
that means our past, present and future sins are forgiven by His 
sacrifice. But like Paul says can we sin intentionally knowing our sins 
are forgiven? If we choose to mock or indirectly reject Christ (His Name 
/ Nature) than is there any other sacrifice available for our forgiveness?

We need to understand He paid the price for our sins so the penalty of 
our sins is taken away. That means when we stand before the Lord we will 
not be questioned for our sins but that does not mean we will not be 
questioned at all. We will indeed be questioned for abiding in His Will 
or doing His Will. When we are in Christ meaning accepting Him as our 
Lord and Savior and being baptized in His Spirit then the nature of 
Christ grows in us and the nature to sin starts to die in us, we start 
to become more like Him and less our former old man. But if we are not 
in the Lord then we are wicked people and if our generations were not in 
the Lord then they were wicked people.

Jesus was talking to people who did not believe Him and whose 
generations too did not believe or follow His Word that is why He was 
justified in calling them generations of vipers. We as Believers have 
broken the chains of wickedness of our generations, hence forth none can 
call our descendants as generations of vipers. If they reject Christ 
then they would be called wicked but they will not be called generation 
of wicked people.

[Prayer Starter]

Lord we thank You for revealing yourself to us so that we were removed 
from the generation of people who did not believe in You. We thank you 
that none of our descendants will henceforth be called generation of 
vipers. By your sacrifice and your Spirit we know we are crushing the 
head of the viper in our own lives...

This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.

[Reference Scriptures]

Hebrews 9:26For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of 
the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put 
away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

Hebrews 10:12But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins 
for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

Hebrews 10:26For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the 
knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,

Romans 6:6Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the 
body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

Ephesians 4:22That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old 
man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

John 5:25-29

25Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when 
the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear 
shall live.

26For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to 
have life in himself;

27And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is 
the Son of man.

28Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are 
in the graves shall hear his voice,

29And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection 
of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

Matthew 7:21-23

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

22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in 
thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done 
many wonderful works?

23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, 
ye that work iniquity.
