GOOD TO PRAISE THE LORD – part 2

Dearest Holy Spirit, let us be always rejoice in Jesus and Glorify the name of God, let darkness be broken in Jesus name Amen. 

It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High – Psalm 92:1 , NIV

11. It is PLEASANT to Praise the Lord –  We all like pleasant words spoken to us. There are many who have turned their hearts away from God and are decaying, yet God in His great and awesome love seeks them everyday. It is pleasant to thank God. 

The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD, But the words of the pure are pleasant. – Prov 15:26,

Pleasant words are like a honeycomb, Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones. – Prov 16: 24. Pleasant words are not flattery, not lying but words that heal and restore relationship and build it too. How much more when you praise with a heart full of thanks to the Redeemer of your soul, it is good to Praise God! It delights God’s heart to hear us talk to Him adoring. He has a heart and that can be wounded and grieved,.

 12. It is PLEASURE to Praise the Lord –  I said in my heart, “Come now, I will test you with mirth; therefore enjoy pleasure”; but surely, this also was vanity. – Eccl 2:1. What is pleasure ? Everything man has set his eyes on, he has achieved over a period of time through labor and hard work and rejoiced in it. Yet mankind doesn’t seem to be happy! Why? King Solomon  was the most richest person of his time, his wisdom was great, far-reaching, there was nothing that was too difficult for him to understand and he set his heart on things of this world, he built Jerusalem and made it a strong city, he prospered, he married whom ever he desired and yet he was not satisfied, in time his heart was turned away from the Lord God because of pleasures of this world and his fleshly desires,  then he repented and turned to God and God forgave him. 

GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME.

We all are prodigals before we meet Jesus, and when we do we know the true pleasure is doing His will and surrendering our will to Him and allowing Him to reveal the deep things we do not know yet about ourselves.  Be not lovers of pleasures but lovers of God and love what He loves, for what He loves is pure, undefiled and you will learn to love God , your life and value what He gives you. The things of this world strangely grows dim in His glory.

13. It is PRECIOUS to Praise the Lord –  the parable of the woman who lost her coin and the sheep that was lost makes us realize the depths and heights of God’s love for us and that we are precious.  That He rejoices over us how much more should we rejoice to be found by Him. To be brought out of darkness, death, lies, confusion, abuse poverty, sickness, distress… He gave His life for you that you can live His abundant life! It is precious to God to see you Praise Him.

Yes, the Almighty will be your gold And your precious silver – Job 22:25, YOU ARE PRECIOUS TO GOD. By knowledge the rooms are filled With all precious and pleasant riches. – Prov 24:4

 14. It is SWEET to Praise the Lord – Oh the sweetest chocolates, cakes and sweets cannot compare to the sweetness of your praise to Lord your God. It is a blessing to Praise Him. When you know where you have come from.

 15. It is PROSPERITY to Praise the Lord – there are numerous books, tapes  on how to prosper, how to accumulate wealth. Yet many such rich people and those who have accumulated the desired wealth over a period of time suffer DEPRESSION, gloom and sadness. They have everything materially they wanted, they have wives and cannot love them, they have children they cannot be happy with them, you have friends to large a list to remember the names yet you feel lonely. Because you are empty inside. Only He can fill that void. His name is JESUS, when He walks into your heart  – you sing songs for the simplest things, you are anointed with His presence that He will make all you dealings prosper. He will give all that your heart desire and as  you prosper as you Praise Him in your soul.

A truly prosperous person is one who knows the love of Jesus Christ.

16. It is PLEASING to Praise the Lord –  it is pleasing, pleasant to Praise and Thank the Lord. Pray without ceasing  Apostle Paul wrote. Where ever you are Praise God even for the trails you underwent and He will remove it from you.

17. It is LOVING to Praise the Lord –  When a person is in love, they express that love through kind and sweet gestures to the one they love. Not only among spouses, even among friends, parents and children and relatives. God is our Father , Friend, Counselor, Helper and Jesus Christ is our Heavenly bridegroom and His church is His Bride, He is preparing us and when we Praise Him and love Him and remember Him it is loving!

18. It is WELL to Praise the Lord – Are you well my friend, then lift  up your hands and Praise the Lord. The sickness will flee, the gloom will be destroyed in the power of His name ! There is no other name higher than the name of Jesus.

19. It is WEALTH to Praise the Lord –   True wealth of a person is living and abiding in God and His Holy Word in his heart and mind.

20. It is KINDLY to Praise the Lord – Be loving to God, love Him … He has poured out His love in your heart. You can’t do it on your own. You will soon dry away in the flesh. But as Holy Spirit reveals the deep things of God – you will know Him more with each passing day and it is meekness to Praise the Lord, for the meek shall inherit the earth.

Bless the Lord O my Soul!

 

Bless the Lord, O my soul;

And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

Bless the Lord, O my soul,

And forget not all His benefits:

Who forgives all your iniquities,

Who heals all your diseases,

Who redeems your life from destruction,

Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies,

Who satisfies your mouth with good things,

So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. – Psalm 103:1-5

Eternity isn’t enough to Praise and Thank the Lord, for His goodness, greatness. 

As the Prophet Haggai said  –

 

Though the fig tree may not blossom,

Nor fruit be on the vines;

Though the labor of the olive may fail,

And the fields yield no food;

Though the flock may be cut off from the fold,

And there be no herd in the stalls—

Yet I will rejoice in the Lord,

I will joy in the God of my salvation. – Haggai 3:17-18

May the Lord God always shine on you and fill your heart with praise and thanksgiving unto His glorious name. Be blessed in His riches and love. Amen

 Love

GOOD TO PRAISE THE LORD!

Dear Lord Holy Spirit,  give me a heart of Praise and Thanks unto the Lord God Almighty, In Jesus name Amen 

It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High – Psalm 92:1 , NIV

PRAISE JESUS

As I was reading the Word of God and my eyes fell on this verse – IT IS GOOD TO PRAISE THE LORD! I wondered what does God mean when He says it is good to Praise and did a word search and was amazed.

Praising and Thanking the Lord is the most beautiful thing we can do … To Thank Him enough is not sufficient.. For His loving kindness, mercies, grace and forgiveness and the beautiful life He has given us freely!

Yeah everything God has given to mankind is free,  He put Adam and Eve and let them enjoy everything He created.

Praising God is not loosely saying – Praise the Lord without meaning it. It is not a repetitive phrase to be repeated, not able to understand why you say what you say.

It is good to Praise the Lord because when you Praise you are near Him, His presence comes upon you. Only a Praise from true heart is acceptable. 

His Salvation is free ! We just have to believe, for it is the Work of God. 

20 REASONS WHY PRAISE IS GOOD –

IT IS BEAUTIFUL TO PRAISE THE LORD!

1. It is BEAUTIFUL  to Praise the Lord  – What is in the heart reflects, it is a beautiful thing to see a heart glowing with love and face radiating the light of God,  beauty from outside fades away in time, the plastic smile goes away but a smiling heart remains steadfast.

2. It is BEST to Praise the Lord  –  Whatever situation, it is best thing to exalt His name and see the bondage fall away. When you praise God and thank Him from a genuine and true heart – you are carried into His presence.

3. It is BOUNTIFUL to Praise the Lord  – It is bountiful! Abundant life to Praise God, it is not in the things of this world , but in a heart that can love God.

4. It is CHEERFUL to Praise the Lord – to be cheerful you don’t have to go to the ends of the earth and spend all your hard-earned money on things that don’t satisfy, just Praise Him – For He brings joy and laughter into your life each and every day. He is the One who shakes you out of your sadness and gloom , that you give no place to devil.

5. It is AT EASE to Praise the Lord  – It is being relaxed in God and knowing who God is and knowing His greatness, Praising the Lord for His goodness. BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD! 

6. It is GRACIOUS to Praise the Lord  – grace isn’t an outwardly act, it is what Jesus did for us on the cross.  For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God – Eph  2:8.  Thus, in meekness and gentleness – Praise Him for your salvation and redemption and deliverance.

JESUS IS THE REASON FOR BEING HAPPY

7. It is JOYFUL to Praise the Lord –  God created us for His pleasure. having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, – Eph 1:5. God wins your battles, God provides faithfully for your needs and desires, God moves on your behalf and commands the darkness to flee – it is joyful to know you serve a Magnificent and Almighty and Loving God, He brings joy to love and give and share His love with others. It is not a duty, it is something that is birthed in you by Him.

8. It is MERRY to Praise the Lord –  Are you merry in God? If not – Praise the Lord and you will be. Let Holy Spirit put that song of Praise and make you clap, sing aloud of His tenderness and kindness towards you. Ask Him to give perception to your heart that you are merry in life.  A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken – Prov 15:13.

9. It is WELFARE to Praise the Lord –  Parents think of children’s welfare and how they can make their life better and worth while on earth. Yet we have many youths having all the sufficiency of this world and are sad, are broken and distraught. For your spirit longs for God and in the Son of God – Jesus Christ is life eternal. Not outside Him, in Him! In Him is the Welfare of your life.  When you Praise God, the kind, loving and merciful Lord is Your Provider, is your SHIELD and EXCEEDINGLY GREAT REWARD.

FAVOR OF GOD

10. It is FAVORED to Praise the Lord –   The cross of Jesus is revealed to a child of God, for no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he or she is child like, not childishness i.e, foolishness … but a heart of wonder and awe. Believing God and His Word.

And He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.

Then He took a little child and set him in the midst of them.And when He had taken him in His arms, He said to them, Whoever receives one of these little children in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me, receives not Me but Him who sent Me.” – Mark 9:35-37

It is a blessing, a favor of God on a person to Praise His name. Only His children who love Him praise and thank Him and recognize the Father in Heaven as  He touches and heals them.

To be continued…. 

God bless you!

TREASURING GOD’S WORD – Part II

Dear Father in Heaven, let the word of God empower us to live a life according to Father’s will… I pray let Your anointing flow, In Jesus name Amen.

I will worship toward Your holy temple, And praise Your name For Your loving kindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.= Psalm 138:2

HOW TO LEARN –

  • BY STUDYING IT – AND APPLYING THE WORD

When you have a company, you won’t feel bored, tired and reading will be adventurous! … Your companion in reading the Word of God is God the Holy Spirit, WELCOME HIM BEFORE YOU READ THE WORD, ASK HIM TO OPEN THE SCRIPTURES TO YOU, REVEAL CHRIST JESUS! He is more than willing to tell! JUST ASK. 

For He will reveal all Truth to you and make reading the Bible an adventure in Christ! You will enjoy the revelations He will bring and will be filled with awe for God and love Him dearly…  You will also be able to make wiser decisions in areas where you suffered for you didn’t know what God wanted you to do, there was spiritual darkness  but now He will Help you. When we study the word of God we receive knowledge from God about Him, His heart and mind and we perceive what He says. Applying it in real life we get results. We see God move on our behalf.  

  •  IN THE BATTLEFIELD  – USE THE WORD

Even Jesus set an example by using the Word of God against satan’s lies. He said – “It is written”. (Read Matt 4). Satan is a defeated foe, yet he uses strategies to collapse our walk in God, He isn’t afraid when you go to church, he isn’t afraid when you are an anointed vessel of God, he fears when you pray for he fears God. He knows the power that destroyed him! Treasure God’s Word always.

  • THE WORD WASHES YOU –

    ENTER INTO YOUR GARDEN

The Word of God cleanses us. How? God’s word is alive, it is living! when you allow Him to speak to you through the Word, He is able to remove all that marred you through life’s terrible circumstances. The Word of God is a treasure. 

  • GOD’S WORD ILLUMINATES –

Where there is darkness, confusions; God’s word destroys it. Only the Word of God is truth and the Truth dispels darkness by revealing what is hidden and enlightens our eyes that we see more than what we see with natural eyes.

  • WILLING TO UNLEARN MAN’S WAYS –

Many times you don’t receive what God speaks to you because there is a barrier and the barrier is the LOGIC SYSTEM. God’s logic is HIGHER AND ABOVE than man’s rational thinking, reasoning and logic. To know His mind, be willing to surrender your set way of thinking and when the motive of your heart is pure in His sight, He will answer all the questions that arises in your heart and mind.  TRUST HIM.

  • RECEIVE HIS WAYS –

We have to say YES to be His students, We have to Honor God as our Teacher and learn from God the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit will teach us through His servants any one He wills to use… His ways will be a sermon, a devotion, a conversation with someone, some times more supernatural – He will make Himself known to you. One must discern the voice of God while you are hearing the sermon or reading a Christian book. You have to HEAR GOD. You must seek Him with your heart. 

  • TREASURE GOD’S LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS

His commandments are what set the kingdom of God different from man’s world. We learn what is light and what is not. We learn His righteousness, His abhorrence to sin. He is Wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Your life can be built by His Word.

  • GOD REMOVES SIN

The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly (spirit of man)- Prov 20:27

Through the conviction of Holy Spirit, we know what we must put off, we must let it be removed, for we must not let darkness reign. It does separate us from certain habits which we thought were harmless unless revealed by Jesus. He is a gentle Teacher and loves to teach. He even rebukes in love and it is sweet.

  • TO FOLLOW HIM

Jesus called the Apostles as He met them and said “follow Me“, it is the same thing TODAY. To follow Jesus and not ask Him to follow you. If you do – He won’t follow you, you will be alone on that road and He will wait for you to humble, demolish your ego , pride and follow Him in the path of righteousness. He will lead us through the narrow path of life. Even when satan uses all his old faded tricks to create fear, doubt in your heart – through the sword of the spirit – you can destroy all evil plan of satan. Father God seeks those who will follow Him and trust Him. 

  • FEAR OF THE LORD

Fear of the living God keeps us away from sinning. For the wages of sin is death. There is no pleasure in sin though satan lies to us in times of temptation. Fear of God keeps us from sinning. He is love and also we know He is Holy and that’s the reason to destroy the middle wall of separation between God and man, God the Father sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, that through His death our sin, our iniquity and our transgression be forgiven in Him.  That now we are  circumcised in heart. For transgressors will not inherit the kingdom of God. Finally all our works will be tested in fire and judged accordingly by God.

Fear of God is also being in awe of Him, we are called sons of obedience in Christ Jesus. Jesus obeyed God at all points, even at the point of death. Disobedience to the Holy commandments were the reason why Adam and eve fell into sin. His voice bids us to keep our feet away from satan’s trap and nets.

  • GOD’S WORD LIBERATES US –

Some who have thought God’s Word binds them have not truly experienced true liberty. They do not know what freedom is. God’s word liberates you from religious thinking, He gives you the freedom to love and not fill your heart with hatred and darkness. God’s word is life, it is bread to the hungry and water to the thirsty. It is miracle for the healing and deliverance someone has waited for. It is a message of love. You don’t have to cheat in your business to succeed, God will make a way when you yield in submission. Abraham was the most wealthiest person of his time and he was a servant of God.

  • GOD’S WORD IS TRUTH

Truth is what man seeks in His pleasure, labor, relationships and it is revealed only in Christ Jesus and the Word reveals the Christ your Saviour.

  • GOD’S WORD IS WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE –

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,

But fools despise wisdom and instruction.  – Prov 1: 7

Receive what He says, His life, make the right choices by taking the directions of Holy Spirit and you will be blessed. 

God bless us in knowing His Word always and forever. Treasure His Word for His Word is indeed Treasure!

TREASURING GOD’S WORD – Part I

Dear God the Holy Spirit, let God’s word enrich us in our walk in Christ Jesus, that we treasure God’s word, In Jesus name Amen

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God – 2 Tim 3:16

God’s word is spirit. God is Word and He speaks to us through His Word. The Bible is full of Truth and as Holy men were directed by God the Holy Spirit, they wrote as the Lord guided and directed them.

TRUE TREASURE OF MAN!

His Word is eternal. For God said in His Word – Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. – Mark 13:31

God’s will is revealed In His Word, we know His Righteousness and His ways through the Word of God –

For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there,

But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud,

That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater,

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;

It shall not return to Me void,

But it shall accomplish what I please,

And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it

– Isaiah 55:10 – 11

God reveals His secrets to His servants –

And I have put My words in your mouth; I have covered you with the shadow of My hand, That I may plant the heavens, Lay the foundations of the earth, And say to Zion, You are My people.  – Isaiah 51:16

Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. – Amos 3:7

During the reign of kings in Israel, God constantly spoke to His people through the prophets and the kings studied the scriptures to know God’s mind and justice , that they may learn to reign in righteousness.

Believe in the LORD your God, and you shall be established; believe His prophets, and you shall prosper  – 2 Chronicles 20:20

King David in Psalm 119 gives a detailed account on how he feasted on God’s word and sought God to open the scripture to Him –

How can a young man cleanse his way?

By taking heed according to Your word.

With my whole heart I have sought You;

Oh, let me not wander from Your commandments!

Your word I have hidden in my heart,

That I might not sin against You.

Blessed are You, O Lord!

Teach me Your statutes.

With my lips I have declared

All the judgments of Your mouth.

I have rejoiced in the way of Your testimonies,

As much as in all riches.

I will meditate on Your precepts,

And contemplate Your ways.

I will delight myself in Your statutes;

I will not forget Your word.  – Psalm 119: 9-16

GOD’S WORD IS KEY TO ETERNAL LIFE!

GOD’S WORD UNLOCKS TREASURE OF HEAVEN! 

God’s Word is richly filled with Wisdom, Knowledge, revelation of God. When King Solomon prayed to God and sought His forgiveness – God visited him in the night vision and asked him what he desires from God and Solomon could have asked for numerous things from God.

Therefore give to Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people, that I may discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours? – 1 kings 3:9  He knew without the wisdom of God and guidance He cannot reign as a king over Israel, He cannot discern between good and evil. 

God’s favor rested on Solomon –

Then God said to Solomon: “Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked riches or wealth or honor or the life of your enemies, nor have you asked long life—but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may judge My people over whom I have made you king—  wisdom and knowledge are granted to you; and I will give you riches and wealth and honor, such as none of the kings have had who were before you, nor shall any after you have the like. – 2 Chron 1:11-12

GOD GUIDES US ALWAYS!

HOLY SPIRIT REVEALS THE WORD

After Jesus resurrection, the disciples walked through Emmaus, Jesus met them and they discussed about the death of Jesus and they did not know Jesus was with them for their eyes were restrained, yet the Lord spoke to them that Christ had to suffer to enter into His glory –

And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself – Luke 24: 27

His Word is life, even today when we live by His Word, we do see a change in our everyday life. We are able to make wiser decision and are able to keep away from evil. God blesses us as we seek His discernment. Everyone from time to time needs to make important life altering decision – to some it can be marriage, work, vocation, regarding business deals, about friendships. Studies and health related decisions. We do choose everyday what to do and not to do. What to carry on with and not to. Such decision make us think a lot, we consult a lot of experienced people; ask people to pray, guide us, study, do research and finally take a decision. All that is helpful, yet God’s word is accurate and He guides us when we seek Him with all our heart. His Word is not something AWAY FROM HIM, His Word is in Him.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. – John 1:1-4

This is a glorious truth, God is Word. And Jesus said –

The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. – John 6:63. God’s Word is life. The greek word for LIFE is ZOE, which means lifetime, alive, lively , a primary verb, to live. God’s Word is ALIVE, QUICKENS US, it is DIVINE LIFE.

TREASURE HIS WORD ALWAYS

His Word is treasure to my soul, spirit. His Word brought life in me, when I first heard the word of God, my faith was revived, for God’s word says – faith comes by hearing the word of God. God’s word convicts us. Yet God the Holy Spirit is the One who enlightens us, thus we pray to God the Father – impart to us with the spirit of wisdom and spirit of revelation in the knowledge of Him that the eyes of my understanding being enlightened in the hope of His calling – Eph 1: 17

Pray today God the Holy Spirit teaches the Word to you and reveals Christ Jesus to you.

JESUS HEALS AND HEARS PRAYERS!

Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker. For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture, And the sheep of His hand. Today, if you will hear His voice – Psalm 95:6-7

Dear God the Holy Spirit, The Spirit of Truth, anoint the writing and let our hearts be filled with the Praise of God and believe God heals and God hears when we call out to Him, In Jesus name Amen

JESUS LOVES YOU

A MAN WITH AN EPILEPTIC SON – JESUS TEACHES US FAITH

Sometimes we come to God and do not believe that we will receive what we ask from Him, though we have confessed our petitions to God. Our faith lies dormant because we underwent many failures and rejections from people and we come with the same attitude of unbelief to God Almighty. Lord if you can do it, please help.

However, God is able.

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work – 2 Corin 9:8

Here, we read  about a father with an epileptic son whom demon spirits possesses and throws him in fire and in water, his father must have been weary to see his dear son in such pain and torment. Not knowing when anything can happen. He did come with a humble heart to the Lord –

JESUS  REBUKES UNBELIEF ! 

IT HELPS TO BE CORRECTED

And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him.

He came kneeling to Jesus and in grief of heart complained that His disciples were not able to help. Then the man even tells the story of his dearest son who lies tormented day and night.

Jesus rebukes the unbelief of His disciples and says

IT’S ENOUGH !

Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.” And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour.

Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”

So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” – Matt 17: 17-21

Let an evil heart of unbelief depart from you!  Do not imagine that He cannot do what you are asking Him to do. What ever you ask the Father according to His perfect will, He will answer. He has said yes and amen in Him to every promise of God for the Glory of God, Arise and believe in faith.  Jesus rebukes only to remove what shouldn’t be in you.

The miracle – the son made whole! The father rejoices in seeing his son MADE WHOLE.

THE SHOUTS OF BLIND MEN – STOPS JESUS

Now as they went out of Jericho, a great multitude followed Him. And behold, two blind men sitting by the road, when they heard that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David! – Matt 20:29-30

JESUS HEARD THEIR CRIES AND STOOD STILL

As Jesus passed by the streets of Jericho and multitudes followed Him and it was nothing unusual, where Jesus went, followers always gathered and Jesus didn’t get disturbed, but He delighted in the people who sought Him. Here, two blind men sat and Jesus passed by – and they began to shout and cry – O Son of David, Have mercy on us! O Son of David.

Immediately the crowds suppressed their voices, when you are in your misery no one bothers about you , as long as you are in the same routine no one cares, when you begin to cry to the Lord immediately every one gather around you to STOP YOU. To shut your voice, your faith. They shut you out of the break through that  belongs to you as a child of God, yet these men were not afraid and cried even more.

Then the multitude warned them that they should be quiet; but they cried out all the more, saying, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David! – Matt 20: 31.

Their hearts were set on Jesus, they wanted Him to answer their prayers. Now in all this chaos and confusion, people gathered against them, God the Son hears their cries –

So Jesus stood still and called them, and said, “What do you want Me to do for you? – V 32. Yes God stands still when you cry to Him and calls you to come to Him, how He longs today for you to cry out for Him.

They said to Him, “Lord, that our eyes may be opened. So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes. And immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.  – v33 .

The first thing that the blind men saw was the face of the Lord the Creator God. They looked at Him gazing lovingly and in compassion to see them at rest and able to see Him, as much as you want to see Him, He delights in opening your eyes , ask and you shall receive and seek and you shall find and knock and the door shall be opened. God be praised always and forever.

Dear Father God, Glory to God in Highest, I thank you for your goodness, bless everyone that seek healing, restoration to be made whole in Jesus name. Let the Power of the Blood flow , Praises to the Holy Lamb of God, Thank You Lord Jesus, Amen.

A HEART OF HUMBLE PRAYER

Dearest Lord Holy Spirit,  bless those that seek God, create in us a heart to pray in what ever need, In Jesus name Amen.

Jesus answered and said to them, “Go and tell John the things you have seen and heard: that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the gospel preached to them. – Luke 7:22 

THE WOMAN OF CANAAN – A GENTILE, A SINNER CRIES OUT

HUMBLE WHEN YOU SEEK GOD IN PRAYER

There is not a set method to pray, It is not duty, Prayer is full of passion and desire to be touched by Him to whom you cry. When yet unknown who God is, we have cried to Him in the deepest hour of darkness. Here, a Syro-Phoenician woman from the region of Tyre and Sidon saw Jesus. She saw Him, His light, His power and authority and went after the Lord. She lived in darkness, in immorality and she had no claim on Him as the disciples and children of Israel had! He wasn’t even sent to her, yet when she saw Him, she knew He is the One.

The woman was a Greek, a Syro-Phoenician by birth, and she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. – Mark 7:26. Jesus held His peace.

But He answered her not a word, His disciples were bugged with her crying! She pressed on and didn’t give up,

And His disciples came and urged Him, saying, “Send her away, for she cries out after us.  Jesus speaks –

But He answered and said, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel – Matt 15: 21- 24.

She pleaded to the Lord, Help me! Help me! Jesus answered –

But He answered and said, “It is not good to take the children’s bread and throw it to the little dogs.”  For sure, if any one would have heard this from God, how would the responses be… ? Anger, frustration, turn and walk away. No, she didn’t want to walk away, because for long she has seen her daughter suffer, she knew who He is, and that only He can help. God tells us –

I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem;

They shall never hold their peace day or night.

You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent,

And give Him no rest till He establishes

And till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth  – Isa 62:6-7

She gave His soul no rest, she cried out until God broke her and she kept yielding, worshiping God and praising His Holy name, Yeah she didn’t get offended and walk out! She knew God is mercy ! For only Holy Spirit can reveal this!

And she said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the little dogs eat the crumbs which fall from their masters’ table. When God rebukes, do you put on an act? Do you reject what He says, no you say – Lord I am not worthy that you look at me, yet Lord I seek You in the multitudes of Your mercies and goodness…  you don’t deserve it! He deserves it!

Then Jesus answered and said to her, “O woman, great is your faith! Let it be to you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed from that very hour.

How beautiful not only to have healing and to be praised for faith by the Lord Himself! His disciples witnessed this! They saw a woman who knew no Law of Moses, knew nothing – was  received by the Lord because of faith. Faith moves the hand of God and yes Faith receives what God gives, She went home joyfully, once filled with darkness and filth. Now – Light of God shining and breaking forth in her dear little daughter! Even though the child didn’t see the Lord herself, she saw in her mother! God I give Glory to you! I praise You!  Lord I lift up Your name!

Two women in tyre and Sidon happy! Jesus awakened her faith !

MULTITUDES TOUCH GOD’S HEART –  THE CRY OF PEOPLE

When we gather in church what is the reason? Here a strange kind of people gathered around Jesus – they brought to Him  ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE WITH SUFFERING, SICKNESSES AND DISEASES.

Then great multitudes came to Him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others; and they laid them down at Jesus’ feet – Matt 15:30 , Jesus from the top of the mountain beheld this scene of many people walking, tired and hungry , weak and feeble, poor and needy – having more burden of their family and loved ones sick and seeking rest. They didn’t fear the Romans and the Pharisees , they left their homes and knew Jesus of Nazareth has come to their town and now He is sitting on a mountain top and it didn’t seem such a difficult climb for these poor people who could not afford more comfortable mode of transportation, yet these people walked to the Lord. In the heat amongst the stony rocks, they walked.

As they saw the Lord, they cast their dear ones at His feet and their faces showed what they wanted, their eyes spoke to the Lord, their hearts cried to the Lord and JESUS HEALED THEM.

So the multitude marvelled when they saw the mute speaking, the maimed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind seeing; and they glorified the God of Israel.- Matt 15:31.

Lift up your voice in prayer for healing, He is the same yesterday and today and forever! He still heals! He still restores. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Remember it is God’s perfect will for healing. Do not doubt, do not be dismayed,He is God our Healer, It is the Covenant He made –

For I am the LORD who heals you Exo 15:26

PRAYER THAT GOD HEARS

Dear Holy Spirit, let us pray the prayer that God hears which move mountains and glorifies the name of Christ , In Jesus name Amen.

A LITTLE GIRL COMES TO LIFE – 

While He spoke these things to them, behold, a ruler came and worshiped Him, saying,My daughter has just died, but come and lay Your hand on her and she will live. So Jesus arose and followed him, and so did His disciples. – Matt 9:18

Surely this man must have left his house when his daughter was yet alive and in the process as he was nearing Jesus through the crowds that were pressing to the Lord to touch him, how anxious he must have been! His heart would have wanted to go back to be with his daughter and yet he went ahead until he stood face to face with the Lord and could make his petitions known to the Lord. When ever any one spoke to Jesus, He gave them His full attention. Yes , Jesus hears every cry and sigh of your heart. He sees and knows.

JESUS SAID – I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live – John 11:25

When Jesus came into the ruler’s house, and saw the flute players and the noisy crowd wailing, He said to them, Make room, for the girl is not dead, but sleeping. And they ridiculed Him. But when the crowd was put outside, He went in and took her by the hand, and the girl arose. And the report of this went out into all that land. – Matt 9: 23-26

PRAYER BELIEVES FOR THE IMPOSSIBLE TO BE POSSIBLE IN GOD 

In weakness this man stood before the Lord and said my daughter is dead, Wonderful is the prayer of faith, prayer of faith is believing the impossible! His daughter has died and what in human intellect could have made him ask the next thing he uttered? Nothing. When grief was just surrounding his heart , he still let his desire be made known to God, please wake her up, she’s dead, lay Your hands O Almighty Lord and she will live. How many have wished Jesus would just change what they just heard about their beloved.

Jesus followed this man to his house with His disciples – to resurrect the dead, to Him she was asleep but to us  she was dead, as Jesus walked with him, how the father’s heart must have pained. Do dwell to know God does raise us up when we can’t ourselves. He is the One pouring out the prayer made by God the Holy Spirit in us.

THE WOMAN WITH ISSUE OF BLOOD – ACT OF FAITH

STRETCH OUT YOUR FAITH

This woman who had an infirmity for twelve years suffered a lot and at that time being under the Law of Moses, she was  disconnected to people due to her condition. Her life was desolate.

Some understand her condition, and understand the  life of loneliness and sickness and now the woman almost at the worst stage of her condition hears that the Lord Jesus is walking by! Many throngs followed Jesus, voices near her home and she was distracted from her pain to this noise… the people making it obvious Jesus is passing by. Did she hear about Jesus before hand? Did she know at that time this Man heals! What was informed about Jesus to her I do not know, but this I know that this woman socially cut off, did do a daring thing.. Faith surely lifts up a person and we act in faith.

CHOICE OF FAITH

Her faith for being healed did come alive, all these years she was lying and living dormant… now SUDDENLY she was in the scene following Jesus, amongst the crowd, she forgot the people and the push and the pain, she kept desiring to come near Him…  Suddenly ! She came behind Jesus and touched the Hem of His garment and was made whole instanteously… Her faith made her to GET UP and TOUCH HIM, Yeah, she wasn’t some theologian who knew too much, she just knew He is the answer to her prayers! He didn’t pass by that street unknowingly, He knows every sheep. He knows you! He knows me. He knows where we are…  how we are, She said to herself, If I may touch the hem of his garment, I shall be made whole. Faith must go inside of you, must reach out from your head to your heart where your spirit man will now take action! She did. Jesus didn’t condemn but comforted her –

But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, “Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And the woman was made well from that hour.  – Matt 9: 22

UNSTOPPABLE CRY OF BLIND MEN – IN DARKNESS, LIFT UP THE VOICE

As Jesus walked, two blind men followed the Lord and crying out to Him, Son of David, have mercy on us! Jesus really tested their faith, they were on the road and were crying out and now Jesus entered a house and the blind men came to Him and Jesus said to them,

Do you believe that I am able to do this?”

They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.”

Then He touched their eyes, saying, According to your faith let it be to you. And their eyes were opened – Matt 9: 28-30

All they had to say Yes, and tug along Jesus and believe – Jesus knew they had lived in that condition for long, we don’t know from birth or later, sometimes, delay from God doesn’t mean He didn’t hear us but He prepares us to receive the answers. When Jesus spoke to them, they STILL BELIEVED that He can heal! There was something about them, they knew He isn’t just anyone – the One foretold and waited on.. The Messiah!

The Messiah is the Saviour of your soul, cast your self at the feet of Jesus and let your faith in God be resurrected, faith is believing in God and knowing God is willing and  able to restore, save and provide in any condition one may be in, For the Word of God is truth.

God bless you all

SIMPLICITY OF PRAYER

Dear Holy Spirit, this flesh cannot pray and Lord teach us to pray as Jesus taught His disciples to pray, and grant those that truly seek  a heart of prayer – in Jesus name Amen.

Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.- Luke 11:1

PRAYER IS SIMPLE

The Gospel is full of account when sinners prayed to God, so often believers complain what to pray and how to pray. But Prayer isn’t so complicated. Prayer is simple. God wants His children to pray and He doesn’t want it to be formal and repetitive but simply a true confession of faith of who He is and that we speak to Him and understand the ways of Almighty God , It’s a cry to Abba Father.

Yet in the Gospel many didn’t know Him, they were the heathen, the lepers and they saw the Glory of God, knew Jesus was the Messiah, in Him is the Spirit of God the Father. 

THE CRY OF LEPER – A SINNER

When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”

Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.”Immediately his leprosy was cleansed. – Matt 8: 1-3

The leper lifted up his voice to Jesus and said please make me clean. His voice must have been so frail because of the infirmities, his clothes were dirty and bruises all upon him, yet he knew in his heart that God will not forsake him. So, in this deep distress and a divine moment of his life where he did not have friends visiting him, the Saviour was passing by and he stepped out and cried to Jesus, a great multitude was following Jesus and it must have been crowded . Even when a person has a cold or simple fever, we barely can lift up our voice to ask anything for our own needs, yet this leper was willing to Worship Him. He not only lifted up his deep needs , he was willing to forget his misery and worship God who made him and said – Lord, if you are willing, make me clean. He knew  that Jesus was able and Jesus in a fatherly manner – stretched out the Mighty arm to heal and restore and also shared His heart with Him , Son I am willing! Be cleansed…  immediately the leprosy was cleansed. For whom the Son sets free, is free indeed.

 Now, a relationship is formed, and Jesus instructs him.

And Jesus said to him, “See that you tell no one; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.” 

THE CRY OF THE CENTURION – 

 

FAITH MOVES GOD’S HAND IN YOUR NEED

The Centurion truly cared for his fellow servants and there was one that was really close to him that when he lied at the point of death, he chose to go after this Jesus he must have so much heard previously.

He came and made his requests known to Jesus –

Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.”  – Matt 8: 5

As always handling matters with great speed,  he didn’t delay in telling Jesus what was in his heart – Lord my servant is sick, he needs You, He is being tormented by the paralysis. Even before he could have said anything more, Jesus said –

And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him –  Matt 8: 6

Jesus saw the simplicity of this man’s faith in prayer.  Jesus sees the heart of man even in great distress. This centurion was willing to travel far to come and make known to Jesus the state of his servant, in the heat, his own heart must have been in great distress and yet he chose to come and Jesus said – I WILL COME AND HEAL HIM, Jesus loves to heal,He is the Healer. He loves those that ask Him to heal.  He is willing to heal.

The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.  For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel! And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.  And his servant was healed that same hour. – Matt 8:7-13

The humility of the centurion man – who saw his own nothingness in front of the Majestic King and said I am not worthy that You should come under my roof! Lord, Just speak a word and my servant shall be healed! The centurion must have heard of Jesus earlier and came to Him but when he saw Jesus everything changed – He knew he was no ordinary man, he is the Son of God! He knew that He was a Man of Authority and power from High! 

Jesus was joyful,  marvelled at this man who did not know the covenant keeping God of Israel yet bowed himself to such humility that Jesus cried out and said  – I have not found such great faith not even in Israel.

It’s not head knowledge that touches God, it’s not even soulish prayer that touches God, it is the prayer in faith and simple believe that He is willing, that you know when HE speaks a Word, all will be calm! All will be well. Yes, we need to come to Jesus as these simple people came. Not with heavy words, too difficult to pronounce , just to Lord in faith! 

SIMPLICITY OF PRAYER – 

  • Worship God, Glorify Jesus 
  • Lift up your need to Him – Be specific
  • Pray in faith – believing God will answer
  • Come to Him with expectation
  • Remember His promise – God’s Word.  Speak it! 
  • Humble your self
  • Know God’s ways.
  • LOVE HIM ALWAYS

JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE – part V

Dear Lord, open the heart of men and women to Jesus Christ those that seek rest … In Jesus name Amen.

WALKING THROUGH THE BOOK OF JOHN CHAPTER 6

It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.- John 6:63

JESUS WAITS FOR HIS BRIDE

Jesus said to the disciples the words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. They are eternal, ever revealing to the heart of man by the wonderful Teacher Holy Spirit the nature, acts and glory of God. Ever making the bride love God more and more. Ever preparing her for Him. Even in Heaven we learn of the great revelations of God. If you do not desire the revelation of Jesus in your life, your walk with Him is very dry and boring. When you walk without Him, you desire always teachers for yourself, yet unable to learn from God the Holy Spirit. But there are some of you WHO DO NOT BELIEVE.

WHY THE CROSS ? 

In the Body of Christ, there are many, who do not believe in carrying the cross, who do not speak of the Holy Blood and of the Lamb of God. To them it is a DUTY and want to put God in a BOX. Yet, He will not get into it. Thus, it is a dead meeting with no overflow of Joy, love and no willingness to suffer for Christ. No desire for the Lord in their midst. No desire for the Fire of God, no desire for fresh revelation of Jesus. They don’t want disturbance, they don’t want to awaken their dead – spirit, they don’t expect healing, preachers don’t want to speak on healing, miracles. Poor and needy are kept OUT.

Why is the heart living without compassion for those outside?

How sad, yet Jesus already knew from the beginning who were the people who did not believe and would betray Him. He knows the heart of man, He tests man, HE sees who is it who wants and desires God. Yet, He knows those that will walk away.

But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the LORD does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart – 1 Sam 16:7 .

Even the Prophet Samuel was taken by the beauty of the son of Jesse, Eliab. Thought this is one whom the Lord has anointed! Yet, God gave him a new revelation that God does not see man as man does. He sees the heart. He sees what is in the heart of Man.

IN THE HEART OF MAN IS DEEP SECRETS

Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. – Matt 12:34

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. – Matt 12:35

For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. – Matt 15:19/ and He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness – Mark 7:20-22.

But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or an uninformed person comes in, he is convinced by all, he is convicted by all. And thus the secrets of his heart are revealed; and so, falling down on his face, he will worship God and report that God is truly among you. – 1 Corin 14:24-25

TAKING THE CALL

Then Jesus said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father. From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more.

Why does man not want to follow the One who made him? He has come, prepared the way for us. We just have to believe. Yet, some will deny Him, some refuse to walk with Him, Do you understand ? these disciples walked with Jesus, they sat there engrossed in His teachings in the synagogue. Many today may have a believer label … the Lord is not with them. For they have refused His WORD. His WORD IS LIFE. They refuse instructions, they refuse to forgive, to leave what He asks, They make fun of workings of Holy Spirit, they laugh at the power of God, they laugh at the shakings that one experience under the anointing of God. They laugh at prophets, they laugh at the poor and needy, the messengers of God, His hearts grieve to see them so hardened in heart.

It GRIEVES GOD to see them in pride. But if you will not hear it, My soul will weep in secret for your pride; My eyes will weep bitterly And run down with tears, Because the LORD’s flock has been taken captive. – Jere 13: 17

For Pride destroys our spiritual walk in Christ. Pride exists when we do not bow to God’s instructions to life, He saved us to follow Him in everything. When you allow disobedience in your life, you become slaves of satan. He sits on you and takes you to your destruction, whereas God waits until you surrender and leads you to life eternal making this journey on earth a beautiful time with Him and His people.

Then Jesus asked to the twelve , Jesus gets even more intimate now and asks those that He hand-picked to follow Him. Do you also want to go away? I wonder at the condition  of the heart of dear Jesus as He asked this question, do you also want to go away?  Do you also desire Me no more, do you also want to go away from Me?

THE CRY FROM PETER’S HEART 

LORD, YOU HAVE THE WORDS OF ETERNAL LIFE

But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Thank God for the revelation that God gives to our heart to know whom we follow is God Almighty, the Shepherd of our soul. Yet after all this, Simon Peter cried to the Lord Jesus, Lord to whom shall we go? Where can we go – we have come to know that You carry life within you for You are Life and light of men. You have the words of eternal life. Lord our spirit longs for you.  We now  believe you and that You are Christ, the Saviour and the Son of the Living God. Yes, You are the One whom our souls longs for.

Jesus answered them, Did I not choose you, the twelve, and one of you is a devil?” He spoke of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, for it was he who would betray Him, being one of the twelve.

Jesus foresees the betrayal and knows from the beginning who will ultimately walk away to death and destruction of body, soul and spirit said didn’t I Choose you twelve and one of you is a devil.  Was Judas not really enjoying the Word of God, the teachings and the sermons of God, the heart to love the poor and needy, the need to live in discomfort for some time.

GOD THE SON WARNS ABOUT THE BETRAYER 

The betrayal of Jesus was not by someone who was outside but by someone who was intimately with Jesus for the last 3 yrs of His earthly and ministerial life, He even knew the place of the Lord’s prayer…  He later repented but there was no place for repentance.

Do not allow today for satan to use your soul to fulfill his desires and satisfaction. Hell is full of rebellious people and satan is here to destroy your walk but HE WHO IS IN ME IS GREATER THAN he who is in the world. remember God the Holy Spirit is in you as you called on the Lord Jesus . Do not die in the wilderness and Come to Jesus and get cleansed as the Lord removes every uncleanness out of you.

Until you are broken the Living Water will not flow. Let every small and big sin be confessed, repent and forsake it. Do not pick what you like to hear in a sermon, teaching and leave out the correction, chastisement and ways to change.

The changes in you  others will see, Godly character is pleasing. Today when you eat of the Bread, enjoy and be blessed in deep communion, love and intimacy with Christ Jesus

LET GOD EMPTY YOU, CHANGE YOU, FILL YOU TO OVERFLOW IN HIM

            Dear Lord Holy Spirit , guide me through everyday life, that in everything I surrender to God. Let the peace of God rule my heart and I pray that I resist the devil with all his lies, snares and temptation. I yield where I have not yielded before, I pray feed me with the Word of God that I be more like the Lord Jesus. I give myself unreservedly to God. I Pray give me a heart of receiving chastisement and rebukes from the Lord and His servants whom He has chosen and placed in my life. I pray I obey God, break every doubt, fear and anxiety from my heart. Lead me in the path of righteousness, I grow every moment in Christ Jesus, that I am being transformed from Glory to Glory. Father God, I pray for forgiveness for every sin, and repent. Let the Love of Jesus again flood my heart, soul and mind. Let me think of Him every moment. To Jesus be all the Glory for ever and ever.

In Jesus name

Amen

JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE – part IV

Lord Holy Spirit, let the revelation of Jesus as the bread of Life be unfolded into the hearts of Your children, In Jesus name Amen. 

WALKING THROUGH THE BOOK OF JOHN CHAPTER 6 

Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to youunless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.- John 6:53 

JESUS WHO WAS, WHO IS, AND WHO IS YET TO COME! THE RISEN LORD

JESUS: THE DIVINE WORD OF GOD

There was a division among His disciples and they quarrelled among themselves, How can this man give His flesh to eat? Yet Jesus said to them, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His Blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed.He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.This is the bread which came down from heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.

The Life of God is manifested in Jesus when we look unto Him and believe the work of the cross. For He was revealing to them the new order! That God spoke through the Laws, the prophets and Psalms. God became flesh for us and He condemned the sin in flesh as He laid down His life for us. Of Jesus it is written – Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good.  – Isaiah 7:14-15.

THE MESSIAH FORETOLD

In Him we stand and have our being. Without the Flesh, the Holy Word of God we are nothing. He so wants us to become a living Epistle in our hearts writing the songs of Heaven and cleansing and purifying us from the pollutions of this world.  When you hear the Word of God, do not harden your heart to the Lord your Maker and Creator, who loves you. You who believe in the Lord – do you reject feasting on His Flesh and drink the life from His Holy Blood. His flesh is Word of God and His Blood is the life! There is power in the Blood that cleanses every trace of sin, darkness and corruption. Satan is so scared that he will not open his mouth to speak the Blood. For it is the power that defeated him, it is the day when Jesus Blood was released on the face of the earth flowing from His body through the glorious suffering and Holy wounds on the cross that satan forever remains defeated.

What satan began in the garden of Eden by deception, lies and evil desires in the heart of man was broken on the cross by Jesus. How can you call yourself a Believer and not Praise the Lamb of God. IT is the Sacrifice of THE HOLY LAMB OD GOD that satisfies the wrath of God. Every enemy has to go as the Blood is sprinkled upon you. Your bondages are broken, your misery crushed as the Lion of Judah enters you ! His beloved. Arise Feast on the Word of God, not on the perishable things of this world.

He knows, He judges between the goats and sheep. DON’T LIE! For the spirit of lie is binding you to darkness. Let go of all pain and suffering and know there is no pain in the wilderness of God, the Word of God says – there garments did not wear out, they ate quails that fell from heaven~ ARISE O BEAUTIFUL ONE , your own vineyard you have not kept and thus blackened! Come, wash yourself and cleanse yourself in the Water of Life. Let the Spirit of God – The Holy Spirit guide and lead you. Not the voice of your desires, not the voice of traditions and dead doctrines of men, not the voice of satan. Let the Mighty and Gentle voice of God speak in your heart. Do not shut the door to The LORD.

Don’t fool yourself when you reject His commandments, He is the same yesterday and today and forever. Do not live in perpetual backsliding. Jesus said I live because of the Father, For the Father and I are inseparable. Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else-believe Me for the sake of the works themselves – John 14:10.

JESUS KNOWS THE END OF MAN

He witnessed to the House of Israel that He is the One, The Messiah that they have been waiting for. The One written in ancient scrolls. Even the disciples that Jesus chose complained within themselves. He knows when you complain in your heart. For it is not in vain it is written – the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart – Heb 4:12

OFFENCE OF THE CROSS – SELF DENIAL

Does this offend you? Asks the Lord JESUS CHRIST. Does it offend you –

1)    To be told you are wrong when you are wrong 

2)    To receive correction from those whom you call elders of Church? 

3)    Does it offend your pride

4)    Does it make you complain

5)    Do you reject the gentle rebukes of Holy Spirit ? 

6)    Do you hate to be told the truth of the misery you are in ?

7)    Do you reject prophecy which deals with instructions 

8)    Does it offend you to carry the cross ? 

9)    Does it offend you to give your all to Jesus?

God the Son Jesus asked His disciples who were gathered around Him, who now stood in confusion and murmuring within themselves … They liked it until it was the cross, they liked the miracles, the fan following, the multitudes, the Romans curious looks… but now  the Lord is speaking such things that are driving away the crowd and the collection, the offerings ! He is speaking what no one is able to understand. What then if you should see the Son of Man ascend where He was before? If the word of life while you are here on earth OFFENDS YOU, makes you feel REPULSIVE, you avoid it and think YOU CAN ESCAPE. What will you do when you see Jesus in the RIGHT HAND OF GOD THE FATHER IN POWER REIGNING AND RULING!

Now Jesus speaks the center of Bible teaching.  It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life. Every word of God that you study, learn, hear and make notes of is to build the inner man. God does meet our natural needs , but at the end it is the spirit man that will be resurrected and your spirit man will last forever with God. So God wants to build the spirit man. Your body must be kept clean and in order, keeping away every evil spirit and sanctified to the Lord to dwell. The Word of God is life for the spirit man and it can feed on the Word of God alone, your inner man will reject every other thing you offer and you hunger and groan for the Word of God, not knowing this is what you seek, Jesus alone can satisfy the deepest cries and despairs coming from within. The flesh profits nothing, the flesh is to be crucified. 

I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another. – Gal 5:16-26

To be continued…

I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead – John 6:48-49

MANNA AND WILDERNESS

Jesus now says, I know the manna that your fathers ate and are dead in the wilderness. Jesus wasn’t speaking of the death of natural life. Everyone who went through the wilderness with Moses died at some point in time. But He was speaking of those who ate the Manna which the Lord provided for them in the wilderness and met every need and want in their life. So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord. Your garments did not wear out on you, nor did your foot swell these forty years. You should know in your heart that as a man chastens his son, so the Lord your God chastens you. – Deut 8:3-5

WHAT IS THE NAME OF YOUR WILDERNESS? 

As the Lord leads us through the life as a Believer, He takes us through important lessons, when the tempter prowls around us to destroy. Yet in all this, the Lord is with us. Nothing happened to them in the REAL DESERTS where there were scorpions, poisonous serpents, sand storms, and inhabitants not seen for miles and miles away. For everything they depended on the Lord and He FAITHFULLY PROVIDED. He is always there in the wilderness of your life, not to make you a resident of the wilderness but to overcome the scorpions and serpents and teach and chasten you for when He strips you from the comfort of this life, He clothes you with the provision of Heaven that will not be torn down by lust or cares and pleasure of this life which will one day not be. He prepares you to acquire the promise He made to you that you are worthy of it.. that people may know that GOD TRULY IS WITH YOU.

Yet many died in the wilderness, some hated the wilderness, they hated coming out of Egypt, they hated the commandments of God spoken constantly through Moses, they complained and murmured. They thought foolishly they were better off as slaves of satan than walking through the desert. They didn’t want any chastening. They didn’t want any revelation. They just HATED IT. THEY COMPLAINED, COMPLAINED. They forgot the miracles, the mighty deliverance. THEY SOON FORGOT THE ACTS OF GOD. The Wrath of God was stirred many times, yet Moses always intervened.

Complaining against the plan of God

Then the Lord said to Moses: How long will these people reject Me? And how long will they not believe Me, with all the signs which I have performed among them?

I will strike them with the pestilence and disinherit them, and I will make of you a nation greater and mightier than they. And Moses said to the Lord: Then the Egyptians will hear it, for by Your might You brought these people up from among them, and they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land. They have heard that You, Lord, are among these people; that You, Lord, are seen face to face and Your cloud stands above them, and You go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night. Now if You kill these people as one man, then the nations which have heard of Your fame will speak, saying, Because the Lord was not able to bring this people to the land which He swore to give them, therefore He killed them in the wilderness.’ And now, I pray, let the power of my Lord be great, just as You have spoken, saying, ‘The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation.’ Pardon the iniquity of this people, I pray, according to the greatness of Your mercy, just as You have forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.”Then the Lord said: “I have pardoned, according to your word; – Numbers 14:11-20

Yet the people rebel against the Holy God and died in the wilderness. When you are in wilderness only God can bring you out, not the lies of satan. Don’t run your own rules, it will fail! They complain again!

And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, How long shall I bear with this evil congregation who complain against Me? I have heard the complaints which the children of Israel make against Me. Say to them, ‘As I live,’ says the Lord, ‘just as you have spoken in My hearing, so I will do to you: The carcasses of you who have complained against Me shall fall in this wilderness, all of you who were numbered, according to your entire number, from twenty years old and above. Except for Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun, you shall by no means enter the land which I swore I would make you dwell in. But your little ones, whom you said would be victims, I will bring in, and they shall know the land which you have despised. But as for you, your carcasses shall fall in this wilderness. And your sons shall be shepherds in the wilderness forty years, and bear the brunt of your infidelity, until your carcasses are consumed in the wilderness. According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days, for each day you shall bear your guilt one year, namely forty years, and you shall know My rejection. I the Lord have spoken this. I will surely do so to all this evil congregation who are gathered together against Me. In this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.’”

Now the men whom Moses sent to spy out the land, who returned and made all the congregation complain against him by bringing a bad report of the land, those very men who brought the evil report about the land, died by the plague before the Lord. But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh remained alive, of the men who went to spy out the land. – Num 14: 26- 38

This is what Jesus was addressing in John 6: 49 – Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead.  God is very gracious, yet they vexed Him constantly by speaking against the plan of God and grieving the Holy Spirit. In the wilderness God teaches patience, He builds faith, character and to trust in the Lord always. Wilderness is  your school to learn and unlearn, Jesus is full of grace and TRUTH. 

FLESH OF THE SON OF MAN

Now Jesus said the Bread that is from Heaven is My flesh! Oh FLESH??? Yeah the Lord’s flesh. Oh how could they EAT THAT? Yet God said – man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that came out of the mouth of God. A man is not able to live on his own, nor in the things of this world. One can have much possession still he is lacking. Still he and she is wretched and miserable. Yet they are not able to quieten the cries that come from their soul. Inside they are withering away.

Jesus said,, I AM BREAD FROM HEAVEN.EAT AND LIVE.

If outside is all that is there in a man then man would have been content by now. For we have learnt much and seen much, but God says, without Me, you have no life. You are only living, there is no life.  Jesus didn’t mean physically to eat Him, for yet the Son of God was not revealed to them. For Jesus is the Word of God. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. – John 1:1-4. In the beginning God the Word – Jesus was with God and the Word – Jesus was God…

Dear Father  in Heaven, I pray that you pour out a spirit of repentance on all that have waited on you yet with complaining for the promises You have given them. Forgive for every murmuring, anger, complaining, frustration, doubt, unbelief which has been spoken over Your Holy plan in their lives, release the Blood of Jesus Father, create in them a meek and humble heart to love and trust You always … For Your Word declares – THAT GOD IS NOT A MAN THAT HE SHALL LIE, let us look lovingly towards You always, All Glory and Honor to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.  In Jesus name Amen. 

To be continued….

JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE – part I

Dearest Lord Holy Spirit, The Spirit of Truth, Let Your Word penetrate into my heart and reveal to me the Blessed Jesus  the Bread of life, the Son of God and Perfect Son of Man always, In Jesus name Amen.

WALKING THROUGH BOOK OF JOHN CHAPTER 6 

I am the bread of life. – John 6:48

LOVE JESUS

Jesus went over the other side of Sea of Galilee and He saw great multitudes following Him, His fame had spread wide and crowds gathered because they saw the mighty miracles He did. Truly they were amazed by Him. He walked in a calm, peaceful way and there is love flowing from His face. He delighted to see people made whole. Then more people pressed in, of all age, young, old, married,  unmarried, sick , poor and needy.. curious… He went up a mountain to pray and there He sat down with His disciples. The chosen twelve disciples.

THE DISCUSSION ON BREAD

Jesus lifts up His eyes and sees a great multitude coming towards Him. He said to Philip Where shall we buy bread that these may eat? And the next verse says Jesus asked this Question to test Philip for He knew what He would do. God knew what He will do. Even before a need arises, God is ready with a solution. However, Jesus was teaching Philip to lean on Jesus and not to worry. He would reveal to them that He is the One that provides, the necessity is not bigger than the Provider. He is Our Provision.

Philip tells to Jesus even 200 worth of denarii isn’t enough to feed such a large crowd,  Jesus now hears Andrew say, there is a lad with five barley loves and  two small fish and what are they among so many? Here, Andrew not knowing what is in the heart and mind of Christ Jesus, begins to tell Him that what can we do with so little ? Yet, the Lord is not disturbed by the questions these little disciples were posing in front of Him. The people had gathered and were hungry and thirsty. They needed rest and Jesus said Make the people sit down. Isn’t it wonderful, He was so concerned about them, that He said make them to sit. He wanted them to rest, the Blessed rest.

The Multitudes sat down in the green pastures, Jesus took control. He looked at what Andrew thought was insignificant and gave thanks to Father and distributed them to the disciples and then the disciples to the multitudes. Jesus thanked the Father. “Thanked Him”. The multitudes ate and must have really relished the Bread and fish that was given to them. Tired and hungry, walking for miles to see the Lord and here, the Lord does not disappoint them.  God blessed them abundantly that they were left with 12 baskets of fragments! The Provision of Father is always sufficient, the Lord is my Shepherd and there is no lack. The people who had seen the sign and the miraculous multiplication of bread and fish were amazed, their minds could not comprehend what happened. Truly He is the Prophet who is to come into the world. Yes, only He could do it. Suddenly, the teachings in the synagogue must have come flashing before their eyes, as the scriptures was read : The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear – Deut 18:15.

Now Jesus perceived that they would make Him a King by force, He departed to the mountains alone… for the Lord didn’t come to acquire any earthly throne and earthly recognition; He looked unto Abba Father, for everything. He is the way, the Truth and the Life. He is the Lamb of God, the Son of God. As you walk in this life do not get entangled in the recognition from this world, serve Him faithfully.

As the disciples went out in the boat and Jesus had not yet come to them. How often, we leave where the Lord asks us to stay and are troubled by the events of the day. Wait on the Lord. Wait beloved, He will come and will come. Yes in the utter darkness, the waves rising high in the air and tossing the boat to and fro, their hearts melting within them –

Those who go down to the sea in ships,

Who do business on great waters,

They see the works of the Lord,

And His wonders in the deep.

For He commands and raises the stormy wind,

Which lifts up the waves of the sea.

They mount up to the heavens,

They go down again to the depths;

Their soul melts because of trouble.

They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,

And are at their wits’ end.

Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble,

And He brings them out of their distresses. – Psalm 107: 23-28

Then the Lord speaks His voice yet calm – It is I be not afraid and they willingly received Him into the boat. Yes, you can hear His voice when you seek Him. He calls out to you – do not be afraid. It’s the same voice that calms you even when you do not hear it.

WHAT BREAD DO YOU SEEK?

The news spread wide and His name increased even more, that more boats from Tiberias came looking for Jesus. Eyes looking for Him , they looked  for Jesus, they saw neither Jesus and nor His disciples were there and got into the boats and came to Capernaum.  How they must have been eager going from place to place and they found HIM… oh what a rest! And they could not contain themselves their perplexity and blurted out – Rabbi, when did You come here? Jesus looking at the crowd addressed them and He said –

SEEK THE BREAD THAT DOES NOT PERISH

You seek me not because you saw the signs but because you ate the loaves and were filled. Do not labour for the food that perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him. They ask Him, what should we do? How can we get this everlasting life? How do we labour for it. Jesus knew the intention and the motive why they followed Him, for they desired the bread that perishes. You who call your self a Believer Why do you follow Him , do you follow Him for the food that perishes, do you seek Him for what perishes? We all have needs, we all have necessity to meet. But what is the purpose for which you come to the Lord ? for the bills to be paid, marriage to be repaired and restored, do you come for Him to give you a house, a car and a suitable bride or groom. Do you come to Him for something and not for Him. You that use Him always, seek Him only desiring SOMETHING from Him – Hear well what He said – Do not seek what Perishes, what is destroyed by moth. Do not store riches that will be destroyed one day, which is not everlasting, but the BREAD OF LIFE IS EVERLASTING LIFE.

People still desire the bread that perishes, they said how do we now seek for the everlasting life – what should we do? Man that need to be provided can he work out his own salvation? Yeah, we think it’s in some charity and some deed, we think we got to be good and HEAR YE ALL , what the Lord had to say  –

This is the WORK OF GOD, that you believe in Him whom He sent! How beautiful Jesus, wonderful, that we don’t have to do anything. How can we erase what we are not able to identify? When you don’t understand the root cause of your own misery and don’t see pass the pleasures of life and the cares of life. God says THIS IS THE WORK OF GOD, not man’s.

What happened in the Garden of Eden, I will bring forth deliverance, I will lead My people out, I am the Lord their God and you frail man, woman JUST BELIEVE, I will over throw the enemy from your life. I have overthrown the satan, the accuser, the Liar, the Thief, the Murderer, the Fallen one. I have overthrown the deceiver. Do not fret! Believe in the Son whom the Father has sent.  

To be contined…

Love

JESUS OR THE WORLD

Dearest Holy Spirit, Let Your Word be my word now, “Impart to me the Spirit of wisdom and Revelation in the knowledge of Him that the eyes of my understanding being enlightened in the Hope His calling, In Jesus name Amen. 

He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. – Matt 10:37-28

But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven – Matt  10:33

And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.  – Luke 9: 23-24

What the Lord has said stays settled in Heaven and Earth .. No one can change it.. That’s the TRUTH..There are many in this present world, we don’t have to seek out the Anti-Christ for time to come, we have many and numerous of satan’s domain… to turn the sheep from following the True shepherd.. The hireling are many.. In many masks, numerous philosophies… and teachings, doctrines.

The leaven is already mixed in.. And the tares are growing with the wheat. The unwanted weeds have colored themselves into saints, and messengers of God.. The Lying spirit deceiving the world and the church.. Many are Like Alexander whom Paul the Apostle mentioned.. Leaving the flock and turning away from the Truth. (2 Tim 4:13-15)  Men don’t stop to exalt self and their thoughts. What does the camel know of being a mountain.. But it considers itself too BIG TO BOW until it comes under the mountain and see’s its  own self, shadow and frailty.

Many have issues with these verses quoted above – HATE.. Parents, siblings, children, friends and finally self and then only WORTHY of JESUS.. Is it worth all this.. (Luke 14:26) Why did Jesus want such a severe denial of self?? 

What is self.. Let’s being with self,… I, me, my self – idols of your life! 

      • I love people to adore me
      • I love to be complemented
      • I love people to say yes to me
      • I love to say I am egoist
      • I love not to accept my errors, mistakes
      • I find it too hard to say sorry to some one whom I have genuinely hurt, grieved
      • I love to watch fun stuffs even if it is not right at times
      • I don’t mind to lie to save myself from few embarrassing and difficult situations.
      • I LIE when it’s convenient
      • I love to put on a mask to my neighbor, to the world, to friends, to close friends, to hi-bye friends, to colleagues, to visitors and to self
      • I am faking so long that I have forgotten what the real me is all about
      • I am always complaining
      • Murmuring is my 2nd name
      • I love speaking about my pride and lust
      • I love gossiping, and back – biting
      • I don’t bother about God
      • I don’t think much about His opinion
      • I love to think of heaven and earth, hell as the way I see best
      • I don’t think of helping the poor, needy and animals
      • I am partial to whom I love
      • I am mean to my enemies
      • And so on…

If self has such a big list.. How much more the parents and children…after all they too are human.. Just like us.. Why does it make them any different because we are family. The human frailties that you carry.. So they do..Lord doesn’t mean to dislike our loved ones … but not to keep them and self in par with the Lord..

For no one can be compared to who He is.. He is GOD.. Creator and maker and Lawgiver of Righteousness and Holiness God Said I will never share My glory with another.. Because His Glory is spotless and Holy, It carries His presence… How can He reveal it to those that don’t honor Him and His Word.

DEATH TO SELF

We die daily to this world for each new day brings new earthly desires, we have a lot of desires that births in us and we want what is of the world such that we are accepted , we FIT IN! and we are ACCEPTED.  How would you feel when you know that the latest car is brought by your best friend and you want it too or something better.. That’s the self.. With all it’s desire that Lord said hate! Hate to feed the flesh, Hate to live to fit in the world, hate to exalt what is perishable.. Hate the enemy.. Hate .. Perfect hatred.. . It is a constructive hatred, which builds us spiritually and the carnal man is put to death. It isn’t the hate to hate  a stranger, fellow believer! for remember we fight not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. ( Eph 6: 12-13) 

Only when the Flesh has died to its desire can the flesh be crucified on the cross ..  Only when Jesus said to Father God  not My will but Thine be done.. was the plan of salvation unfolded.

THERE IS NONE LIKE YOU O LORD

Even the Son of God had to say not My will Father, Yours be done..  Only then Jesus could enter the Glory which He left behind for us. We are being transformed into the Image of the Only begotten of the Lord..

How can two will exist?

Every one likes the glorious part of being Jesus, the power and the resurrection.. His death.. No one wants to be part of. But that’s where Holy Spirit is leading us every day.. To crucify the flesh .. That we can live in glory of His resurrection.. For the Spirit in us can do great things when we are an instrument in His Hand. Then this body the temple of the Living God, can mightily conquer the deeds of the enemy and its snares and net.. and let the victories  that Abraham and His descendants enjoyed and also the Apostles of Jesus Christ can be tasted by the Church of today..

THE TRUE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST –

We are the Church. It’s not the building where we gather .. It’s us.. We are the channel through which God Almighty planned to operate.. He plans to give us the privilege to be the channel for His Spirit to flow. Hallelujah! Praise the Lamb of God..  Only the death of self can be the beginning of the Life of Christ in us.. If you are alive and your desires are alive in u..to satisfy the flesh and all its demands then you miss the plan of God.. The goal of God Almighty.. When we are the channel .. Even nations will be blessed and delivered.. Lost souls saved, unity and peace and mighty healings will begin and the devil will bow to Jesus . We can see these miracles only when the Church will rise.. Only when we EMBRACE the cross, the shame, denial, rejection, humiliation and total abandonment to receive the Truth in our beings.. To be the One who says Thus says the Lord.. And demon power will be broken..

Only to be His Voice in the desert.. That there will be rivers of Living Water everywhere.. To be the voice and to be the crown of Glory in Father’s hands.. We have yet to see the mighty things Jesus spoke about.. When will the church stop being in the world and arise to the true heir ship it belong to? …and reign for what it was created.. You are the Light of the World.. Come..  And deny self and the resurrection power awaits you.. In Jesus name Amen .

I WILL LOOSE MY LIFE WHEN I TRY TO SAVE IT.. BUT WHEN I LOOSE MY LIFE FOR THE SAKE OF THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST AND FOR HIM, I AM SAVED.. I AM SAVED.. I AM FREE. I AM WHOLE, I AM CLEAN, I AM IN RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD, I HAVE ANGELS TO MINISTER TO ME…

HALLELUJAH..

LOOSE WHAT THE WORLD HAS TO OFFER, AND SEE WHAT ONE DROP OF THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS CAN DO .. WHEN U SEE UR WILL CRUCIFIED! TO LIVE IN THE HOLY WILL OF GOD.. HALLELUJAH!

Love

Sugi

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT EVER YOU DO

Dear Lord Holy Spirit, let Your Word guide and lead me in the eternal truth that Jesus Christ reigns forever… In Jesus name Amen.

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. – Col 3:15-17

WHEN U CHANGE FROM WITHIN … THE PEACE OF GOD OVERFLOWS THROUGH YOU

LET THE PEACE OF GOD RULE YOU

God speaks to us every moment and many of us cannot hear His Voice  because so much noise has filled our hearts and mind. When every moment we desire Him to help us in the ways of this life, we need the Saviour Christ Jesus and He alone can help us know what we must do.

The peace of God is spoken so much and so little lived in. there are times when I have not been in peace and was ashamed and yet God doesn’t give up and wants us to learn from Him.

God desires us to have the peace of God rule in our hearts and it is not difficult. For we must cast our selves at His feet constantly. Do not think the enemy of your soul rests and has forsaken you, since the day you called on Christ Jesus as Lord and Saviour, you have become his favorite target to push you down.  Knowing this, many anxieties, worries and tensions are not humanly and originated from satan’s domain. After being saved you still are having these anxiety pangs? It’s because this area has not been dealt with… what is not dealt with remains.. Thus, it is discovered in times when we are not Christ like and must be removed … we must not pity what God does not pity.. Self Pity is the worst crime ! Because it makes us feel like a lame man not able to rise. We magnify the wounds, the scars, the situation and circumstances, we then magnify our own misery than needed.  How many hours one has wasted after becoming a born again Believer, in brooding and weeping for things we were asked to conquer.

OVERCOME MOUNTAINS IN FAITH

Yet, we do not see our difficult situations  as  a means to Glorify God and for His Kingdom to come. What enemy has caused you to trip, fall and remain in  a place of spiritual lethargy, God wants to show that He is above every old scheme of satan. God calls him old serpent! Now God has a command for His chosen people, to let the peace of God rule you in your hearts. i.e., to allow the peace of God to rule you. God wants you to allow and permit Him to rule you.

What is ruling your heart and minds ? What is occupying you lately that you have withheld your Praise to God Most High. There must be something and that is ruling, Here beloved In Christ God wants His peace to rule you. His peace is not a feeling of mind, His Peace is Himself – Jesus Christ. He must rule your hearts, He must be the ROCK of your soul. He must be the captain of your life! He must be the Shepherd of your soul, He alone can rule you. Everything else will destroy you ultimately.

YOU ARE CALLED IN ONE BODY – God expounds that to which also you were called in one body and be thankful! Yes, you are called in one body. We are one body and Jesus Christ is our head! How often we are tearing apart the Body , yet the Body is us… and thus hurting and grieving self and Christ our Lord, For He laid down His life for us to live in His Resurrection power.  Many may be the fiery darts of the wicked one, I will trust in my Maker and Lord – I will trust in Him more than the giants that I face, I will trust in my heavenly Father to provide when it seems impossible … because whom I believe , Lives! He is Risen and watches over me…

LET CHRIST DWELL IN YOU

Lord says – Let the Word of Christ dwell in your hearts, create in your hearts room for His Word to dwell. Today it isn’t too late for you to change and make amendments. If your room is dirty , you will clean it, why not your soul. All you have to do is believe In His Word, for years, centuries…the prophets and the Children of Israel believed in the Word given to them, they trusted the Lord against all odds …  for God’s wisdom speaks to us to lean and trust in Him when times are difficult and thus we can encourage those who need encouragement, a word of Hope and LIFE. God expects His Elect to Teach and Admonish!!  Admonish means to warn, to put in mind, to caution and reprove gently, calling attention to, it also can be a mild rebuke and correction. We have this authority in Christ Jesus. What are you doing with the authority that Christ has given you. Do you know that Satan only possesses power that is feeble than the power of Christ and he has no authority over you. You belong to Christ Jesus, He has given all power and authority to you. In His name you can dismantle the invisible web of darkness that is trying to overtake you.

PRAISE IS BEAUTIFUL

WHAT EVER YOU DO  – SING SONGS OF PRAISE

God wants us to sing songs of praise and love to Him in grace! In your hearts to the Lord! How wonderful. God  wants us to sing with the congregation but more importantly in our hearts to Him … Praising truly.. Why? When you are on your own .. .do you love Him, to sing to Him… and adore Him for who He is to you…

Above all, our action speak louder.. So God says … What ever you do in word and deed , Give glory to God, Let not a deed that is disapproved by God be done and seek to justify it by twisting the context of the Word of God. Do all for Him – for when you begin to see that in everything you are serving Him, there will be joy and the heart of complaining, cribbing will be completely removed  . Yes, God will be magnified. Depend on Him when you do something and on His person. Do nothing without Him. Let this mind be far from you – to leave the blessed Holy Spirit counsel in  your acts.

In all this, the peace of God will rule you as you obey and surrender and Trust Him.

WHAT EVER YOU DO – DO TO EXALT THE NAME OF CHRIST JESUS !

Peter did come out of the Boat, but sank when he saw a large wave come at his direction, fear gripped his heart and he forgot the sense of walking on the water with the Lord. How wonderful that moment must have been when Peter walked on water! yet fear distracted him. What ever you fear cast it at His feet. Replace fear with the Word of God in faith in whom you trust – Jesus Christ. Now, know He cares for you. He has displayed on the cross what He can do and did for you and how much more His love is enough for us…

LET HIS PEACE RULE YOU 

Teach me to do Your will,
For You are my God;
Your Spirit is good.
Lead me in the land of uprightness – Psalm 143:10.

Father God, touch your sons and daughters now in Jesus name. open their hearts to your peace and your wisdom and let the Word of Christ dwell in their soul and spirits, lead them in the path of love and righteousness, to Jesus be all the Glory forever and ever. Amen. 

Love

PREPARE YE THE WAY

Dearest Holy Spirit, Anoint my writing, Cover and protect us under Your precious Blood Lord Jesus. Let hearts repent before You Lord always … In Jesus name Amen. 

In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!” For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying:

      “ The voice of one crying in the wilderness:

      ‘ Prepare the way of the LORD;

        Make His paths straight.’”

Now John himself was clothed in camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist; and his food was locusts and wild honey –  Matthew 3:1-4

When our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ, said “Repent”, He called for the entire life of believers to be one of repentance.

GOD WANTS SINNERS TO REPENT AND TO RECEIVE HIS MERCY – 

The time is near, the signs are here and still the heart is un-repented for the sins committed against the God Most High!

The workers are sent to proclaim the message of His Glorious return and to enter and stand in the King’s presence.The need for this hour is for the revelation of the Word of God like a forest fire! The need to proclaim the necessity to repent and turn away from sins that have chained and locked us in the ways, thoughts of this world and the deception of darkness. You think you  are free because you can eat your own bread, drink your own drink at the expense that is too light on your wallet, you have a home, cars and friends too numerous to remember .. God isn’t threatened by man’s prosperity, He delights to see us prosper.

What concerns Him is the slothfulness of the man sleeping at a time when He must wake up and watch. To disregard and mock that the Lord has commissioned His people to get into the Ark of Jesus is a big MISTAKE! 

PREPARE YE THE WAY – 

Even while you sleep, outside your windows  and in the streets below, in the arenas God has sent His servants to Prepare His way, you hear it faintly and now open the windows of your heart and know that the Voice is real.

There is the unrepentant heart that is living in sin and unaware of the Wrath of God.  To you who read, it doesn’t matter what Church you come from Or Which pompous king’s servant you  are – Have you repented? Is He your Master and Lord? Have you prepared the path of your heart for the Master to enter?  for the Kingdom of God is at HAND! Near you! At your reach to stretch out and seek His forgiveness and mercy through the sacrifice of the Son of God – Jesus Christ.

REPENT: TURN AWAY FROM SIN, TURN TO GOD  – 

He has not hidden the truth to REPENT. He has not hidden that Truth that you have fallen in sin, and the Price has been paid in full for your redemption, freedom and LIFE now and eternally through His broken body and Shed blood of the Lamb of God, all you have to do is REPENT before God. Receive the free gift of the Lord your Saviour. Who came for you and loves you.

Do not be like the sluggard O church of God, it is to you the Revelation 1,2,3 is written. Where do you fit in? Do you think you are ready?  Be ready… For the day of the LORD is terrible. It is a day of gloom and wrath..

WILL OF GOD –

Be ready for the merciful God to receive you as His swift angels come for you, they only obey the command of the LORD. Nor mine nor yours, there is no compromise in the Law of Grace. Grace is not freedom to sin, but freedom from SINFUL LIFE.  Come, now while the Holy Spirit is here, ask of Him, live in the wilderness until you are perfected for the mansions above, Live feasting on the Word of God.  Ask for purity, forgiveness and vision of your future. Receive the Master’s call to discipleship. Why do you run half way and assume you are in when the Master has said only those WHO DO THE WILL OF MY FATHER are in with Him. Where are you in His will?

Where is Father’s will in your life… do you know it, recognize it? Where is compassion for the lost, for the broken. poor and the needy. Where is brotherhood among believers? Where is a listening ear to the one mocked by the society and gatherings of so-called saints of God? Where is standing up for truth? Where is love and kindness? Where is righteousness and long – suffering? Where is mercy, where is patience? Where is the garment of righteousness and the shield of faith. Where is the leaning on the Arm of the Lord ? Where is forgiveness, acceptance to the unaccepted, where is offering when unasked for? Where is tithing … the house of God lies ruined and you build your own mansion? Where is the need to give out Samuel’s for the Lord ? Where is the vow kept made to the Lord Most high?  Where Is the Nazarene in YOU?

BUILD THE HOUSE OF GOD

Why ? Has the Sons and daughters of God failed to love the most High? Why are there idols in your heart. ?

Don’t you know  – Eph 1: 4-6

He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,  to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

Look, open your eyes to the truth that has gone forth.. Prepare the Way, For His day is near, His hour is at hand, He knows the cries of those bidding Him to come, yearning in the darkest corners of the earth, but these are the torches that keep His wrath away, these are the Anna’s that dwell in temple day and night…  praying for you and the lost.

LOOK – Therefore He says: Eph 1:14

       “Awake, you who sleep,

        Arise from the dead,

        And Christ will give you light.”

        Redeem the time for the days are evil!

HYMN

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;

He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;

He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword;

His truth is marching on.

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!

Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on

Love

FATHER and SON

Dear Holy Spirit, lead us into closer relationship with our Heavenly Father in Jesus name Amen.

Therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God. Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel.  For as the Father raises the dead and gives life to them, even so the Son gives life to whom He will. For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son, that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. – John 5:18- 23

FATHER & SON  

It is most amazing that Jesus said that the Son can do nothing on His own , what ever He sees the Father do, the Son also does in like manner.

Here, I  speak “son” in the context of sons and daughters … not based on gender. For God’s word speaks to our spirit man, we are all called Joint heirs of Christ, all are Sons of God.  A Father, son relationship is amazing to watch as a child learns from his father at a tender age.

In Jesus I observe deep humility to be willing to say that the Son can do nothing on his own, except what He sees the Father do, he does like wise.

PARENTS MUST HAVE FATHER’S HEART OF LOVE – 

Even some of the best examples we learn are from our parents – manners and they help us in our character. They do pass on to us what their parents taught them early in life.  It is the first school  where you learn to respect, obey elders and love and give. Here you make the first mistakes and are scolded and corrected. Parents play a vital role in a child’s life and especially a father.

We have grown up adults who crave for attention like a nursery kid. They are hurt easily, willing to let go of the most dearest relationship. They are able to mange work, career and not your own personal life. Some fail in all areas. Why does a grown up – who’s well-educated , literate , knowing the things of the world .. Still crumble at calamities, still craves for love like a child. There are parents who are like kids. Who cannot differentiate between right and wrong. They are not young parents, they are now grandparents. Still hurting, confused, angry , bitter, too many wounds , revengeful, spiteful…  why ? 

Jesus as the most magnificent One, the Wisdom of God, Knowledge of God – shows us how He the Almighty God depends on Abba Father. He isn’t ashamed to tell us that He sees the Father do and like wise does Himself.

Parents teach children because they are their own and they love them for the simple reason they are their children. We need a generation of children who grow up SAFE in their own households, we need parents to look after their kids and teach them. WE need a love filled environment. LOVE is missing in most homes, love isn’t something to look down at, Love is not for those who are romantic, love isn’t for the weak. Love is for All. Love is God, the element of Life is LOVE. 

REASON FOR BROKEN HOMES  

How many homes we know are broken, bleeding, outside they are like white washed painted walls… shining but it is fake, there is a mask. There are confused children and parents. We train them on career and do not know what to do when they cry in despair. We do not know HOW TO COMFORT when they are mocked in public in schools, colleges, work places. YOU cannot train them about what you do not know.

Here, we see the limit of human help. That cannot sort out its own problem and here, we look to the Lord our Saviour. He gave us an example in Himself to know whom we need, the FATHER in HEAVEN.

Daughters and sons behave and have different desires. We are FINE WITH EVERYTHING in THIS GENERATION. All types of desires are fine, its cool. ITS ACCEPTABLE.  We have crossed the barriers and are going through a wicked life on earth. Why are youth desiring to be no more and take the extreme steps? Why are young couple looking out to jump out of their wedding, why has adultery and fornication increased and DEPRESSION of every sort has multiplied. 

We look up to things man makes and lift it up and see it crumble… fall disgracefully in our sight. The singers and philosophers of this world cannot take you where HE can. GOD ALMIGHTY.

Jesus when He came down to earth as Son of Man , showed us the most humble experience to look unto Him and BE saved.

A FATHERLESS GENERATION

We are looking  at FALLEN PEOPLE, TWISTED, WELL CONCEALED, HIDDEN, DARK IDENTITIES, we have thousand LIKES for causes, where as personal causes are breaking and falling.

It is because of a FATHERLESS GENERATION, a Generation that doesn’t have a Father, that has said NO TO THE FATHER.

We are taught to be SELF DEPENDENT. Do not even depend on any one, just you and see where yourself have taken yourself to. To death, to graves, to drugs, to addiction of alcohol, smoking, to bring reproach to your own character, to gloom, frustration, depression.

In Whose hands is your soul in? Only God can control YOUR SOUL. He is ruler of all creation. He is YOUR CREATOR

JESUS THE SON OF GOD, THE SAVIOUR of YOUR SOUL  – 

Look to God, Just as Jesus looked, God never failed Him. Look to Abba Father. I don’t know what you went through, He knows. He knows to care and love you. He wants to embrace and wipe the stained faces of sin. Sin scarred face – He sees you, He sees your brokenness. People will see that you are rebellious, HE still runs after the REBELLIOUS KIDS!

Receive from Him garments of righteousness , receive from Him Love, and leave the lust  – the evil passions that masks itself as LOVE and traps you.

Receive from Him the Living Water and forsake the drink from the intoxicated drink of death, hell and perversion.

Your throats are dry, your eyes fail from watching in the darkness. Your lips are parched from drinking the lust of the flesh.

He is your light, His name is JESUS

The Son of the Living God, in Him you receive your sonship and can call this God as Daddy, Papa, Father in Heaven.

In His Spirit in you – YOU learn to obey, to surrender, and say YES TO ABBA’S WILL.

YOU SAY “YES” TO HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, NO TO LIE.

You learn right from wrong.

You have Him WONDERFUL COUNSELLOR to counsel YOU.

WHO DO YOU RUN TO COUNSEL –  a flesh ? 

God says – Thus says the Lord: Cursed [with great evil] is the strong man who trusts in and relies on frail man, making weak [human] flesh his arm, and whose mind and heart turn aside from the Lord.

For he shall be like a shrub or a person naked and destitute in the desert; and he shall not see any good come, but shall dwell in the parched places in the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land.

[Most] blessed is the man who believes in, trusts in, and relies on the Lord, and whose hope and confidence the Lord is.

 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters that spreads out its roots by the river; and it shall not see and fear when heat comes; but its leaf shall be green. It shall not be anxious and full of care in the year of drought, nor shall it cease yielding fruit. – Jere 17:5-8

What God can do, only He can do. He alone is YOUR Strength, refuge, your bestest friend, your guide. Your truth, your identity. Only GOD. Repent today and Turn to God and receive His grace. 

Not man, however wise, well-learned and aged that person is, However loving that person is, or caring.

You faint with break ups , you are wearied with your mistakes still you walk alone? Why don’t you rest in Him and drink from LIFE.

You must cry out to Him, Call out for HELP … FOR YOU ARE IN A PIT OF MIRY CLAY, SINKING DEEP DOWN. You need to LOOK TO HIM and fix your gaze upon Him who alone can bring healing to your wounded soul, to a soul trodden underfoot by men, by the society, you have become a toy in the hands of satan , he uses you as a toy, something he can throw any time. Why do you allow such agony to yourself, why do you bring shame to your self. Why do you hate your own self.

Love God, HE isn’t the enemy of your soul, but HE brings you out of bondages , breaks pride,  heals and restores. He died for you, He rose again for you, that you may resurrect  to life,  and in every situation.

Look to Him who made you, Who is your Maker and  Your Father. Humble yourself to God , the Undefeated One, the Majestic, the Glory of Heavens and Earth, Humble to Him and Believe in Him.

Today enter into His LIFE, HIS REST. His peace.

He calls to those who are fatherless, to be a Father for them. To care, to nurture … and to bring forth your LIGHT.

In Jesus alone you have a relationship with God as Abba, Father.  Receive His Sonship.

Be not an orphan , for He sent His Helper.

Come and enter and be at peace with God.

Dear Father in Heaven,

I give every weary, tired soul to you. I pray by Your multitude of mercy God will heal and restore. You will reveal Yourself as Their Father In Heaven. That you care and want to share Your everything, even Your Son Jesus. Lord, reveal the Glorious Son Jesus Christ to all that thirst and hunger for You. Let the Living water flow from their spirit, hedge them by Your precious Blood O Lord Jesus, today let them know U  are the Lord. 

Heal the parents who seek you today, heal every mother and dad’s heart and heal every daughter and son, every confused youth, confused elder. Heal the broken heart, break the spirit of discord. Let Healing flow from the throne of God, Let every heart rejoice in Your Liberty, freedom. I pray and believe  the anointing of the Lord will break the yoke of satan from Your people according to Your promise in Isaiah 10: 26-27 – 

And the Lord of hosts will stir up a scourge for him like the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb; as His rod was on the sea, so will He lift it up in the manner of Egypt.

It shall come to pass in that day
That his burden will be taken away from your shoulder,
And his yoke from your neck,
And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.

Come Holy Spirit, breathe Life, In Jesus name Amen

Love

DO NOT GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT – Part I

Dearest Holy Spirit, as we walk in Christ Jesus, We remember of Your beautiful presence in us and that U are grieving because of many sins that we commit, let us look to God in mercy and seek forgiveness for grieving Your precious heart. In Jesus name Amen.

Assuredly, I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they may utter;  but he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is subject to eternal condemnation”—  because they said, “He has an unclean spirit.” – Mark 3:28-30

Once we begin the beautiful walk with Lord Jesus to guide, mentor and mould us, Lord sent His Spirit – the beautiful Third Person of Trinity to dwell in us, after the Resurrection Jesus breathed the Spirit in the disciples. Today again Jesus is the One who breathes His Spirit in us that we may be directed  in the right way.  But, Jesus prayed the prayer that He won’t leave us as Orphans but would send a Helper to help us and prayed to God the Father on our behalf and the Lord Father in His great mercy allowed the Holy Spirit to dwell in our midst.

Holy Spirit is the One who makes the Word of God alive for us, He teaches and exhorts. He edifies and comforts. He comes to those hungry and thirsty for Truth, Holy Spirit convicts and corrects. He came to reveal JESUS CHRIST, to Glorify the Son of the Living God.

But, we believers often have grieved Him –

We grieve Him when we do not do the things He nudges in our heart to do and much more. Let’s see through the Bible how the precious Holy Spirit can be grieved and let us forsake the sin of grieving Him. For continuous grieving can turn into Blasphemy. When Holy Spirit came – we all know He came, because He comes like a rushing mighty wind and fills us and we know He is in us… we are new creation. The Word is alive, everything is new now, however when He leaves – it’s so quiet we don’t even know He left. I pray that Father in Heaven will melt each and every heart as they read for His name sake. 

WHAT GRIEVES THE HOLY SPIRIT –

1. LYING – Do not lie when it’s difficult to speak the Truth, do not deceive your self – by ignoring the Truth. Therefore, putting away lying, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members of one another. – Eph 4: 25 NKJV. God expects us to speak the truth.For any form of lying, however light it may seem when you utter it – is from enemy. The source is satan. Lying is darkness, and God has no share in it, so we shouldn’t . Learn to be honest. God exhorts us by commanding us to put away LYING. Do not lie to anyone. Treat your neighbour as yourself. If you do not like to be cheated neither does the other one! So, apply what you are expecting from others. 

2. WRATH OF FLESH – due to what ever reason , a quarrel, argument has occurred – pray and seek forgiveness from God for self and forgive those that have grieved you. Be angry and do not sin, do not let the sun go down on your wrath – Eph 4:26 NKJV, don’t wait for the person to forgive, when you come in prayer – forgive that person and let God be in control. Let God be exalted. Don’t let the sun go down on your wrath – meaning don’t sleep in anger, don’t let the matter be. Put it off! You release yourself from hatred and anguish of heart before the day ends. God even doesn’t approve of cold wars! Humble and forgive. Speak out the matter openly and do not have secret feeling! Speak the hurt, pain caused. 

3. DO NOT INVITE THE DEVIL – satan has a lot of ways to entice and tempt us, but we have a greater One in us than he that is in the world. Look unto the Lord and not to satan. –Do not give place to the devil – Eph 4:27. A habit that appears harmless and which you know isn’t the will of God later turns out to be a snare. Check what are you doing that grieves Him. Do not rush through the confession of sins, take time and confess one by one and apply the Blood of Jesus against every sin committed and ask the Lord to release His Blood and strengthen you through His Good Spirit to overcome the sin. Rebuke the habit, renounce it in Jesus name. 

4. DON’T STEAL – God saved the thief on the cross, who asked Him to remember him when the Lord would enter the paradise. where ever you are, Seek forgiveness and you will be touched by Him. Be not a stealer of joy, happiness, let that habit die ! Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labour – Eph 4:28, 

5. LET NO CORRUPT WORD COME OUT – the words that comes out either brings death or life. The choice is ours, how do you speak to someone unpopular, when you are not in church or with church elders and members. How do you speak to family, spouse, children, strangers, friends, poor and needy. It is in these moments that we are really tested. When NOBODY IS WATCHING! . Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. – Eph 4: 29, the psalmist says about Jesus – grace is poured upon your lips – Psalm 45:2.

6. DO NOT GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT – when we do what He doesn’t want us to do, He is grieved. He is grieved when we don’t obey His voice, when we don’t listen to Him. When we neglect Him, neglect reading the Word, neglect prayer and don’t fellowship. Grieving is when He weeps over our sins, when we reject a man or woman of God and mock His servants. Don’t joke about servants of God. He grieves when we resist Him. He grieves when we enjoy sin and the pleasures of this world above the call of God. He grieves when we ignore GOD. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption – Eph 4:30

7. HOLDING ON TO ANGER, HURT AND PAIN – God is our comforter and Healer. It is the work of God to heal us of every wound of past and fresh. The walk in Christ Jesus is not one where it’s a rosy road ahead , like tales from story books that we grow up with imagining and full of fantasy. God said the path to life is narrow and few strive to enter in. Many times people and church may not understand you, there will be false accusations at you and rumors or things that you haven’t done – you have been blamed for. The person you trust walks away, betrayal, etc. – thus our heart is hurt and we have wounds and we create a invisible wall between God and us and do not allow God to heal and help us to come out of darkness.

You read the Bible , you pray, you sing praises and you help the poor, needy, you are active member of church – still you are not whole. Still there is no joy, happiness, no answers, no wisdom and understanding. Why? Because you are not honest to God about yourself. You are not allowing Him to touch you where He wants to. Until then – you are on your own – Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, calmor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice – Eph 4:31. God want us to be like Jesus and who said it was easy to be like Jesus. Everyday He was persecuted and the nearer He came to crucifixtion = more snares were laid, let all your pain be released at the feet of God, Jesus died on the cross to set you free! Be free from emotional bondages

To be continued…

GRACE OF GOD

Dear Holy Spirit, Teach us to walk in the grace of God which is revealed in Jesus each and every day, In Jesus name Amen.

Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man. – Col 4:6 KJV

GRACE IS CHEERFULNESS AND BLISS IN GOD

God says our speech must be with grace. How do we speak with grace when we are not operating under grace. When thousands of thoughts are disturbing us, God has equipped us and redeemed us that powers of darkness does not influence us, satan can use boredom, and desires to trap us into not giving thanks to God for the things He has given us. He has not left us as orphans but given us His Spirit that we can walk as He walks. In Love, mercy, grace and humility.  Enjoying this life without being entangled with the lusts of this world. 

God loves to see us smile and enjoy the benefits of His salvation. Heaven smiles, is full of happy people.

God Himself is Happy and He desires that we are Happy. 

When our speech is with grace, we are a comfort to the weak, needy and poor.  Let YOUR LIGHT SHINE! 

The original Greek translation of this word is CHARIS and Pronounce as KHAR’-ECE which means divine influence upon the heart of man. Grace in our speech cannot be brought out by human effort, that will be false humility which falls away in times of trials so quickly. Grace is the divine influence of God in our mannerism and acts. Also Grace is benefits, favour of God, gift. It is originated from CHAIRO – be glad and rejoice, to be cheerful, calmly happy or well off.

Because of the divine influence of God in our hearts – we are blessed with

 1. Cheerfulness

 2. We are glad

 3. Rejoice in God

 4. Happy –

 5. Calm

 6. We receive divine favor and benefits from God

 7. Grace is a gift of God

HE TOUCHED ME , AND I AM HAPPY

Wow this is amazing ! isn’t it .. that we must always be in a state of bliss .. how often we are not and take for granted the gift .. the grace of God lightly. 

I Hope today you will walk in His grace, that there will be lightness in your heart despite the circumstances. 

The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace – Psalm 29: 11

God bless and strengthen you

Love

PSALM 121

Dearest Holy Spirit, Reveal Your Word to me in the name of risen Lord Jesus. amen

I will lift up my eyes to the hills – from whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth – Psalm 121:1-2 

How many times calamity or distress has come upon a person and we all think of reaching out to the nearest and closest person to help us out and didn’t find any help!

But God wants us to reach out to Him as the Psalmist lifts up his eyes and looks to Him who made Heaven and Earth. He reached out to God, He reached out to the most influential Person. A heart that really trusts God , will look to Him first.

TRUST HIM AND DON'T TRUST YOUR DOUBTS

Do not worry and be not dismayed! God is very close to you where ever you are. As you trust Him, He provides help. He even make sure the path that you are walking into is covered, that though you walk either in weakness or strength that He will not allow your foot to be moved. He will not allow the perils to overtake you, He is the same God that led the Israelite by night by a pillar of fire.

GOD MAKES THE CROOKED PATH STRAIGHT

He is not a God that sleeps, if you ever think that! it’s a LIE.  He is awake and watching over you, He keeps you alert and active.

He will not allow your foot to be moved;
He who keeps you will not slumber.
Behold, He who keeps Israel
Shall neither slumber nor sleep. – Psalm 121:3-4

He keeps you in perfect peace, He watches and guards over you. He protects you from the perils that fall along the way in life. He knows every wicked scheme of satan and He is way ahead of His scheme. In verse 6. To know He cares for us is refreshing to the soul. GOD CARES FOR OUR WELL – BEING, HEALTH, HAPPINESS OF SOUL AND SPIRIT.

The Lord is your keeper;
The Lord is your shade at your right hand.
The sun shall not strike you by day,
Nor the moon by night. – Psalm 121:5-6

promises of God are YES N AMEN in Christ Jesus

Above all, God preserves you. You who trust God, who call on the name of Jesus. Remember – though many trials have come upon your soul and you have been wearied at times by it, He will preserve you from all evil. Preserve means to hedge you. To keep you under the center of His protective eyes. He watches over you. Evil will not overtake you. He shall preserve your soul. To know He knows every anxiety and comes to deliver you from all of it! He doesn’t want you to worry and act worried for it brings forth nothing.  All you have to do is lift up the name of God in that circumstance.

When you GO in the world and do the works of God and are sent by Him, He preserves you. He knows that you go to places where satan’s throne is, at times you are scared. even though in obedience when you do what you are meant to do God is in control, God preserves your every step. He marks the path, releases His angelic hosts to take charge. He Himself is with you.

God is not with you just for now! but for eternity. Eternity to be spent in His presence! How Glorious.

HE IS MY ROCK, FORTRESS OF REFUGE

The Lord shall preserve you from all evil;
He shall preserve your soul.
The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in
From this time forth, and even forevermore. – Psalm 7: 8

Where ever you are, LIFT UP YOUR EYES TO THE CREATOR GOD. LIFT UP YOUR NEEDS, CIRCUMSTANCES, SITUATIONS TO HIM, LIFT HIM UP ..FOR HE IS ABOVE ALL, EVERY GIANT IS SMALLER THAN A SPECK TO HIM. HE CAN CRUSH THE SATANIC FORCES THAT BIND YOU AND BRING PEACE AND COMFORT TO YOUR SOUL. KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT ALONE AND EVERY SECOND HE IS WITH YOU AND WATCHES AND GUARDS YOU. ENEMY CANNOT BREAK IN.

SEEK HIM WITH A HUMBLE HEART

God bless you and love you always

Love

THIS GOOD FRIDAY

Thank You Holy Spirit, let us sit by the feet of Jesus as Mary did. In Jesus name Amen. 

As she stood behind Him at His feet weeping, she began to wet His feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them – Luke 7:38 (NIV)

As Good Friday is approaching, there is only one reason to look forward to that day with gratitude and humble heart for what the Jesus the Son of God did as a Lamb of God for the entire mankind. 

Blessed is HE who comes in the Name of the LORD!

This day especially magnifies the day that occurred 2000 yrs ago, Jesus being glorified as the Saviour of our Soul! He died on the cross and was beaten, bruised , mocked, humiliated and nailed on the cross. Why? that sin have no hold on us and that we are not slaves of satan. He chose the way of the cross because He loves us, He dearly wants our fellowship. He longs to speak to each one of us. He set us free from every disease, curse, sickness and mental anguish … by bearing it Himself on the cross and delivering us! Thank You LORD!  

He quietly suffered on the cross, until He broke every power of satan and destroying every curse, every chain of satan from our life. In His death, He gave life. He gave redemption, a hope for a future, eternity of Joy with Him. Yeah, Heaven is beautiful because of Him. 

Don’t just come to Him because you are scared of suffering in Hell,  come to Him because He died for you, paid the price of sin. 

God desires YOU today! Desire Him today, as you want to begin this good friday – remember Him, His suffering, His price, His sacrifice and His love. His eternal Mercy. His Blood.. His wounds, His grief.

Come to the Lord, in Love and humility and sit by Him and Thank Him for the Death and Resurrection. 

Thank Him that the tomb is empty! 

That We are seated in the heavenly places with Him! 

LET YOUR HEART REJOICE IN JESUS

Write, a new song thus says the Spirit of the Living God.

In the noon when all is quite and still

I hear your heart and wait to respond

I long to embrace you and speak to cheer you up!

 

The day I created, the day I planned,

Come and sit a while and know My heart

Know, when I am close to you

Draw for the Lord is near

The Lord loves laughter and Life.

THANK YOU FOR THE CROSS LORD

Dearest Jesus, Thank You for the Cross Lord, for Your Blood and Sacrifice, that Your Body was broken to heal our broken body and life! For You are the bread of life! … Let us draw to U today with our hearts. Enjoy Your fellowship and seek YOUR FACE.

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.  Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place. For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually. As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, and do according to all that I have commanded you, and if you keep My statutes and My judgments, then I will establish the throne of your kingdom, as I covenanted with David your father, saying, ‘You shall not fail to have a man as ruler in Israel. – 2 Chronicles 7:14-18 nkjv

Love

Sugi.
