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.

SAVE US,WE ARE ABOUT TO DIE !

“Jesus got into a boat, and his disciples went with him. Suddenly a fierce storm hit the lake, and the boat was in danger of sinking. But Jesus was asleep. The disciples went to him and woke him up. “Save us, Lord!” they said. “We are about to die!” “Why are you so frightened?” Jesus answered. “How little faith you have!” Then he got up and ordered the winds and the waves to stop, and there was a great calm. Everyone was amazed. “What kind of man is this?” they said. “Even the winds and the waves obey him!” When Jesus came to the territory of Gadara on the other side of the lake, he was met by two men who came out of the burial caves there. These men had demons in them and were so fierce that no one dared travel on that road”.-Mathew 8:23-27

When we speak of someone’s faith we expect a total faith in the mighty one but we can understand the kind of faith the disciples had in him though they were with him in the same boat .

It’s difficult to comprehend the love of the Lord especially when we are not in the same boat .Like the disciples we can’t afford to be in the same boat because we have to deal with other worldly materials.

The Lord guided the disciples and allowed them to be with him,temptations of the evil one didn’t bother them much because it was simply impossible for Satan to be after them when the Lord was among them.

Yet their faith swayed when the severe storms hit the boat and water entered into it .They had thought the boat would sink and would drown everyone including the Master.

Thanks be to God that we are fortunate to know that nothing can go against the Lord,that no weapon can work against the creator .

We can also understand the fact that life is really very difficult for those who can’t afford to be with the Lord because of our iniquities,I mean people like me .

Though life is difficult but there’s a ray of hope for all of us;the roaring noise of the storms didn’t disturb the nap of our Lord but he was very alert when his disciples said “Save us Lord for we are about to die!”

We only need to call him once with a contrite heart and tell him Dear Lord,I am physically weak because of my sins and I don’t have much immunity to fight the pestilence of the present times please strengthen me by forgiving my sins and enable me to give up my evil practices which crucify you every now and then and remain with me always .

Thank you very much,take care.

DON’T THROW PEARLS BEFORE PIGS

“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces”.-Mathew 7:6

Christ didn’t want to share the heavenly riches with everyone.He doesn’t want his followers to force people to accept his teachings.He is the Prince of peace and he can create millions for his praise and worship.

After all the message of Christ is a Royal gift which is meant for the meek and humble.It’s not meant for all.

So many fight shy of the messages of Jesus and it doesn’t mean that they don’t need the grace but they are not destined to receive healings and the grace to be happy and prosperous.

Poor people are here on this earth since ages and out of them only a few learnt the art of becoming rich .The art of becoming rich is also prevailing since ages .

Transforming one’s status doesn’t depend on one’s thoughts of the mind.Law of attraction doesn’t always help a criminal to become a saint or a beggar to become a billionaire.

There are millions who have been dreaming of becoming wealthy for decades but they cannot be so because it’s predestined.

The creation of our first parent Adam and Eve tells us of the existence of different forces on earth;one is evil and the other is good.

Perhaps many of us don’t know that every moment the Lord is trying to bless thousands of people in different parts of the world and the Satan knowing it very well puts something of his own in as many people as possible prior to that.

People who are gifted by Satan are not eligible to enjoy the gift of the mighty one.So many people are suffering of ancestral curses.We know that we are trying hard to lead a pious life for the sake of our children but very often we fail.

Not everyone can be the residents of the Buckingham Palace, not everyone can be the member of her Majesty’s family however hard we try,however rich we become ,however intelligent we become.It’s not possible in this life.

When Jesus was on the Cross only one out of the two thieves repented and sought his forgiveness.Jesus had forgiven him and had said, certainly you will be with me in my Father’s house.

Even though Christ has the power to take all of us to heaven the Satan won’t allow someone else to use what belongs to him.

Thanks a lot ,take care.

HAPPY WEBLOGGER’S DAY


International Weblogger’s Day Date in the current year: June 14, 2021

International Weblogger’s Day

International Weblogger’s Day, also known as InWeDay, is celebrated on June 14 every year. This unofficial holiday was created to bring together bloggers from around the world and to promote blogging as a way to express yourself and engage in dialogue with people from different countries and backgrounds.

A blog (short for “weblog”) is an online diary consisting of discrete, often informal entries called posts. Most blogs are primarily textual, but they may include other types of content such as images, videos, music, and audio.

The term “weblog” was coined in 1997, and its short form, “blog”, was first used in 1999. That same year, Pyra Labs launched Blogger, one of the first blog-publishing platforms that allow users to create and run blogs for free without any programming background.

In 2004, around 500 bloggers from over 40 countries supported the idea of creating a holiday that would unite blogging enthusiasts from around the world. The inaugural International Weblogger’s Day was held on June 14, 2004. On the occasion of the holiday, bloggers write special posts for their online diaries. In some cities, special meetings are organized where bloggers can meet “offline”.

Unfortunately, the popularity of International Weblogger’s Day has decreased considerably over the recent years.

Thank you very much .Take care.
