CHANGE IS COMING

Hello dear ones,I have to change for my own satisfaction because I can’t be like anyone else.I am what I am so I must be a little different from the others,hence I have thought it differently.

I shall post spiritual matters only once in a week because I feel spiritual matters are truly sacred and it must receive due respect.

I personally feel that I must always carry my love and respect for my Lord with me and at the same time I have to ensure the fact that I can discuss or share matters of spirituality in a favourable atmosphere(congenial) and not everywhere.

I avoid going to places where I am not respected so It is my first and foremost duty to keep in mind the fact that my Lord is not a thrown away article .

I feel that I bring more abomination to my Lord than respect by sharing the invaluable message with everyone.

Can anybody invite the honourable President or the Prime Minister of a country to any place ?No,because he/She is respectable person so the venue matters a lot.

Hence after pondering over the matter I have decided to post less of Spiritual matters and more of worldly matters.

In today’s world billions follow Christ but only a few love and help the followers of Christ.I have felt it very often that is why Jesus is liked and shared only when a like minded or a friend posts it.Above all the intervention of the Holy Spirit is required to like Christ.

I have realized the fact that true love is with only a handful of people and most of it is in the holy book and not on this earth.

I know of people who are ready to help needy and poor ones with financial support of huge amount but are not ready to give a holy Bible free of cost to a person even when he has a almirah full of New Holy Bibles which costs not even two dollars .

Have you thought about it ? I know of disciples of Christ having huge library of books on different spiritual matters but are not ready to share a single book even though I have told them that I shall deposit the price of the book before taking it for a few days.

Actually that is only for them not for a common person like me.I am not at all disheartened but I am telling you facts so that you can prepare yourself for the worst .

Even when I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Lord and yet I can’t like his teachings posted by an unknown person that means I need a thorough cleansing .Would anyone do that if someone would post his/her mother or father’s picture?

Certainly not,in that case we would simply be elated to like it and be overwhelmed by that person’s courtesy.

Very recently one of my good friend had approached a preacher of a Church for his son’s admission and the preacher had shown him the broken windows of the Church and had told him that he requires a lot of money to replace those windows .My friend understood his language and returned home with no hope of help.

Actually the broken windows are never changed because those are the real baits for earning .Jesus is no more a Lord to many but has become a commodity.You like it or not it’s a fact.

I really need to change for my happiness ,I can’t make everyone happy.I can write well only when I forget about the critics and the world .So I need to take my stand even when other people feel bad.

Thanks a lot for your support and prayers.Take care.🙏

MARKS OF THE TRUE CHRISTIAN

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.[a] Do not be conceited.

17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[b] says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
    if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”[c]

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. – Romans 12:9-21

Thank you very much.Take care and pray for me .God bless .

DO NOT CONFORM TO THE GODLESS WORLD

This is what the Lord says to me with his strong hand upon me, warning me not to follow the way of this people:-Isaiah 8:11

The Lord condemns the works of this world so he is warning all of us to not to follow the statutes of this world.We find how our Lord condemns the activities of this world by exposing the error of the godless world’s view in the book of John.

“When he comes, he’ll expose the error of the godless world’s view of sin, righteousness, and judgment: He’ll show them that their refusal to believe in me is their basic sin; that righteousness comes from above, where I am with the Father, out of their sight and control; that judgment takes place as the ruler of this godless world is brought to trial and convicted.

 “I still have many things to tell you, but you can’t handle them now. But when the Friend comes, the Spirit of the Truth, he will take you by the hand and guide you into all the truth there is. He won’t draw attention to himself, but will make sense out of what is about to happen and, indeed, out of all that I have done and said. He will honor me; he will take from me and deliver it to you. Everything the Father has is also mine. That is why I’ve said, ‘He takes from me and delivers to you.’John 16:11-15

The encouraging message is “Everything the Father has is also mine.That is why I’ve said,’He(The Holy Spirit) takes from me and delivers to you,’

So my beloved friends ,cheer up for we only need to be worthy to receive what the Father has,because we are the true heir to all that he has .He had delivered the power to control everything on this earth to our first parents but sadly they delivered it to Satan by obeying him.

We only need to say no to Satan to inherit all that our first parents had delivered to Satan ,we only need to tell the Satan that we belong to Christ our Father hence all control over this earth belongs to us and not to Satan.

Let us be his true children and be the ruler over this earth as he had intended when he created this universe.

Thanks a lot ,take care.

LOVE FORGIVES ALL OFFENSES.

It is love that enables each one of us to share something for the others.Even when one is not in a state of sharing something for the loved ones finally shares to strengthen one another.

‘To err is human; to forgive, divine’.-Alexander Pope

It’s natural to make mistakes but it’s not natural to forgive as it is divine .Sometimes we feel immense pain when we hurt someone we don’t really love ,a person who is not a close relative of ours .That happens because we are not sure of receiving his /her forgiveness.

We don’t need to read great books to understand every actions of ours because our good friend;our conscience teaches us many important things and if we are loving to all then the Holy Spirit speaks to us through our conscience and leads us to a path of sanctity.

You,my brothers and sisters,were called to be free.But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh,rather,serve one another humbly in love .For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command :”Love your neighbour as yourself.”Galatians 5:13-14

The above extract from the holy book warns all of us to not to delve deeper into matters related to fake love .If we think of physical relationship for the sake of our love we no more remain free but become slaves of the flesh and that is how the evil one is misusing the words of the holy book.

The Satan is always trying to convince us that we ought to have a (filthy)physical relationship with the person whom we love contrary to the teachings of Christ .And if we inculcate such love in our lives then we will never ever receive true forgiveness ,neither from God nor from human beings .

To be God’s perfect children we ought to be loving like him not expecting anything in return but only false accusations as our Lord had suffered during the trial in Pilate’s court.And to be like him we need the grace of our Lord every moment .The moment we think our strength is sufficient we fall like Lucifer.

Thank you very much ,take care.

THE GENERATION OF THE UPRIGHT WILL BE BLESSED.

I have a great message for all of you ,a message of hope and prosperity.At present my better half and I am ill yet the show must go on so I am posting an encouraging post for all of you .Please remember my family in your daily prayers.

Praise the Lord.

Blessed are those who fear the Lord,
    who find great delight in his commands.

 Their children will be mighty in the land;
    the generation of the upright will be blessed.
 Wealth and riches  are in their houses,
    and their righteousness endures  forever.
 Even in darkness light dawns for the upright,
    for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.
 Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely,
    who conduct their affairs with justice.

 Surely the righteous will never be shaken;
    they will be remembered forever.
 They will have no fear of bad news;
    their hearts are steadfast,trusting in the Lord.
 Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear;
    in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.
 They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor,
    their righteousness endures forever;
    their horn will be lifted high in honor.

 The wicked will see and be vexed,
    they will gnash their teeth and waste away;
    the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.-PSALM 112:1-10

Thank you very much ,take care.

YOUR GRIEF WILL TURN TO JOY.

16 Jesus went on to say, “In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me.”

17 At this, some of his disciples said to one another, “What does he mean by saying, ‘In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me,’ and ‘Because I am going to the Father’?”18 They kept asking, “What does he mean by ‘a little while’? We don’t understand what he is saying.”

19 Jesus saw that they wanted to ask him about this, so he said to them, “Are you asking one another what I meant when I said, ‘In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me’? 20 Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy.21 A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. 22 So with you: Now is your time of grief,but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.23 In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. 24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.-John 16:16-24

We have problems and worries but that is for sometime only because the dark clouds remind us of the fact that the sun is there but it’s only hidden for some time.

A person having everything in life lives a dull life because in such a life there is no challenge and no adventures.

Blessed are those who are going through trials and tribulations for they will be consoled in due time .

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.-Philippians 4:19

Thank you very much.Take care.

THE MASTER’S TOUCH CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE.

Be merciful to me, O LORD, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and my body with grief.

My life is consumed by anguish and my years by groaning; my strength fails because of my affliction,  and my bones grow weak.

Because of all my enemies, I am the utter contempt of my neighbors; I am a dread to my friends– those who see me on the street flee from me.

I am forgotten by them as though I were dead; I have become like broken pottery.

For I hear the slander of many; there is terror on every side; they conspire against me and plot to take my life.

But I trust in you, O LORD; I say, “You are my God.”My times are in your hands; deliver me from my enemies and from those who pursue me.

Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.-PSALM 31:9-15

The above message from the Holy Book depicts the status of a broken hearted person.

I remember a story of an auction ,I am sorry it can’t be attributed to the actual narrator as I don’t know the exact source.

Once a man arranged an auction of great antiques in a huge hall .Rich people had gathered there to bring home the best article of value.

The man had sold almost everything when he had an old violin,which had gathered a lot of dust on it as it was not used for long was left on the Dias. The strings had loosened so it seemed to be of no use.

The man took it in his hand and shouted aloud it’s price, just one dollar but the people started walking back home as no one was interested in buying that old violin.

When the crowd was at a distance from the dias where the auction was arranged, one of them who was an expert of violin and other musical instruments took up the violin and tightened the strings and began to play the loveliest of melodies.

The crowd turned back and returned to the Dias,the violin which they refused to buy for a dollar was sold at the highest bid of that day’s auction.

My beloved friends ,we are in despair ,we are troubled because we seem to be invalid,our performances are not attractive.

We are in distress and are the utter contempt of our neighbors and friends perhaps because we need to come in touch with the expert ,who will tune us and bring the best out of us for the world.

I know everyone is important,every one’s performance can be the greatest show on earth only if we be loyal to the author of beauty.Let’s not worry of our little short comings because it’s part of the show as we read on.

Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.  That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships,in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.-Corinthians12:7-12

We only need to be in his grace even though we sin again and again and we shed tears for our sins and the interesting part is, the Lord himself assures us that his power is sufficient for us.

So my dear ones please cheer up and live with great enthusiasm because we are living for a purpose and we are not alone because the mighty one is with us .

Thank you very much.Take care.

EVERY ONE IS IN THE APPROPRIATE PLACE ACCORDING TO ONE’S STANDARD.

Among the dead no one proclaims your name.Who praises you from the grave?-Psalm 6:5

In this world people have set an unit for measuring or weighing different objects .A child who is smart and studious is easily promoted to the next class .

Some extraordinary children even get double promotions for their IQ.

There’s literally no place or space on this earth where you can live as you wish .You have to live according to the standards made for the people of that region.

A good for nothing servant or a worker is simply fired and made to be in the appropriate place.

A student of humanities is not chosen to work for NASA.

A doctor is never sent to the farm to look after the cultivation of some crops.

I don’t really want to prolong it any further but would like to say that ;if we create an habit to praise the Lord everyday then we are in a perfect place i.e.this beautiful earth where we are alive to worship him and adore him but if we have some other intentions of research ,or getting the top degrees of the University or to understand all the laws of the sun,moon and stars to be wise then there is danger of extinction.

If we don’t pray,adore or worship the Lord then the perfect place for such persons is Sheol ,a place where the dead people rest but don’t remember the Lord to worship him or adore him.

The Lord also uses the same unit to segregate people for different purposes and the interesting fact is that the Lord doesn’t violate the laws we have introduced so we can’t blame him for the consequences of our work. Now it’s up to us to choose what is suitable for us.

Thank you very much.Take care

GOD LOVES YOU JUST THE WAY YOU ARE BUT HE LOVES YOU TOO MUCH TO LET YOU STAY THAT WAY

These days a lot of people are complaining of not getting enough support of the Lord because the places of worship are closed.

Many of us are fed up with the kind of life we are forced to live in the event of shut down.

After all we all are social beings hence an unsocial life is intolerable to us.He has given us almost everything to be happy but we cannot make use of it.

Do we value his grace ?Amazing grace must be taken care of or else it will go back to someone more worthy of it.

A child brings out the best only when he/she is allowed to live with books,copies,pens,pencils and drawing materials.

Jesus is often helpless when we keep him in a dirty filthy stable in our heart with our greed,lust,envy,anger,gossip and so on.To bring out the best from him we ought to give him a perfect place in our life.

If we need a special grace from him then let us consider him as our priority and then it’s easy to have what our heart desires.

He is a loving father,friend of all those who invite him to one’s heart.He is carrying with him all that we require and he is ever ready to give it to us only if we love him.

He had began a journey with his heavy cross in search of little love and his journey is on sometimes he is knocking on the door of your heart sometimes on the door of my heart …...

He is doing that not because he needs love but because he knows that we all are begging for everlasting love from door to door and he cannot tolerate that.

He knows it well that only he owns everlasting love.He died on the cross with outstretched arms,inviting you to remain with him .

I am sure you will do it and win his love.

Thanks a lot ,take care.
