Praise the Lord for his great grace and mercy towards me. God is compassionate and has has been a good comfort to me in this season.
It’s high time many people have lost job, world economy is down, people worry about their future. But for the children of God, their future is in the hands of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, He is the author and finisher of Faith.
Our God is a wonder working God, He gives water from rock, divides sea and makes it dry sand, gives meat for thousands of people in wilderness!, Daily fed the Israelites with manna from heaven, what else ? , The Bible is full of miracle done by God.
We usually forget these miracles, and doesn’t apply in our daily life. Jesus Christ fed five thousand people with just 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish.
Matthew 14:17-21 (KJV) “And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes. He said, Bring them hither to me. And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children.“
Let us have faith only in Jesus Christ , He shall fulfill our needs.
Psalms 23:1(KJV) The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
” He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” – Psa 91:1
Our Lord and savior Jesus Christ is a mother like God. Many a times he calls us and gathers us a hen gathers her chicken under it’s wings , but we go away from God.
There is safety until we are under His wings. Perhaps we think , we are more intelligent and wiser than God, some times we give advice to God , and tell Him , it like this Lord. But actually we are in wrong pathway, only after traveling quite a distance we come to know we are wrong.
When “all was well” we didn’t seek God . We were Sunday Christian’s only. We didn’t care much about the unsaved people of this world. We got involved into the materialistic things of this world , eventually we forgot to tell gospel to others. That was the main purpose, God has kept us.
God gives us good health, money, job, friends and family so that , we will prepare the people for second coming of Jesus Christ!!. But what we do , is just have forgotten ” the purpose of our Life” and go on pursuing the worldly things. But times have changed, things are different today, people really have realized there is supreme power, that is God. Even atheist have started to believe in God.
Once again it’s time for us to repent for our sins and go back to God. But this time God expects is a ” True Repentance”. Because many times we repent , but after some time again we go away from God.
Now time to seek his forgiveness , and rectify our life, we must build a good relationship with God, a good prayer life. Only a praying group of people can be found worthy to be caught up in second coming of JESUS Christ.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is a merciful God. No matter how bad we are he is ready to forgive our sins. No matter backslidden we are , His precious blood of Calvary cleanse our sins. What we must do is to kneel down in his presence and pray fervently with tears. Then surely God will forgive us , heal our Land. Praise the Lord
” If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. ” – 2Chronicles 7:14
Today’s world we’re living in the robotic technology. Human beings are stepping on to moon, reaching on to other planet like Mars, they are building space station! The science is very much in advance state. Biological sciences are even more advanced, we treat all type of sickness and organ transplants. Artificial blood cell are created, artificial limbs, organs are created in 3D technology. Science is advanced so that man is going on to invent new technologies to prolong life span.
since two months this advanced science and technology is not able to contain the virus epidemic. This shows that human inventions are nothing, only God can save us.
Matthew 24th chapter tell about signgs of the second coming Jesus Christ.
Matthew 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences( epidemic diseases), and earthquakes, in divers places.
Our Lord and savior Jesus Christ have said about these things 2000 years before. But these things are happening in at present time.
Present science is not able correctly detect how the virus is spread, what is reservoir of infection, mode of transmission of infection. Finally no vaccination, no treatment. Only symptomatic treatment is available.
The perfect vaccination is the word of God – Holy Bible, all the promises of God help us to overcome this trial. Trusting in the name of Jesus Christ is the only option available for all mankind. Repent and follow Jesus Christ , for his coming is soon. Let us pray for salvation of all the people of world and speedy recovery of people who are infected by the virus. Praise the Lord.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16
None of us are promised tomorrow – if you die tonight where are you going?
Once you die your eternal destination is set – there is no second chances. Very serious question with eternal consequences. Going to church, belonging to a denomination, having Christian parents, being a good person, giving money to churches, doing good deeds etc will not save you. The LORD Jesus Christ said REPENT of your sins for the Kingdom of GOD is at hand. We are saved by Gods Grace through faith in Jesus Christ. GOSPEL – For ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
Now REPENT of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away (Acts 3:19). Whoever believes in him (JESUS CHRIST),IS NOT condemned, but whoever does not believe IS condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only SON OF GOD (John 3:18). “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). We are made right with God by placing our faith in the LORD Jesus Christ – In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.
For EVERYONE HAS SINNED; we ALL fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus (Yeshua Messiah), when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus Christ as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are (Ephesians 1:7, Romans 3:22-25). Once you were alienated from God and hostile in your attitude by wicked deeds. But now He has reconciled you in Messiahs physical body through death, in order to present you holy, spotless and blameless in His eyes— if indeed you continue in the faith, established and firm, not budging from the hope of the Good News that you have heard (Colossians 1:21-23).
Jesus Christ died for our sins, HE was buried, and HE was raised from the dead on the third day. If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:9-10,13).Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6). For by GRACE you have been saved through FAITH and this is not your own doing; it is the GIFT OF GOD NOT a result of works, so that no one may boast (Ephesians 2:8-9). “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should NOT perish BUT have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him (John 3:16, 17). For our sake He made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21). HE was wounded FOR OUR transgressions; he was crushed FOR OUR iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5).
Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. And when you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation)—when you believed in Christ—you were marked with the seal of the promised Holy Spirit, who is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of his glory (John 3:3, Ephesians 1:13-14). Remember what it says: “Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts” Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away. (Hebrews 3:15, Acts 3:19).
The LORD Jesus Christ – Yeshua Messiah – HE is the image of the invisible GOD, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist (Colossians 1:15-18). HE is Almighty GOD, The KING of kings and LORD of lords who is returning soon. “Behold, the Day of the LORD is coming—cruel, with fury and burning anger—to make the earth a desolation and to destroy the sinners within it” (Isaiah 13:9). HIS first coming was to save mankind – His second coming is in judgement of the world! ***Please read the bible from end to end asking GOD to give you understanding on how to walk in HIS ways and stay on the narrow path. Love to you! Praying for you and hope to see you in heaven.
THE GREAT COMMISSION TO ALL BELIEVERS And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (John 20:18-20).

Beauty is something each and every person gives more importance, concentrate on it , even after getting old. Young individual usually look at mirror often to make sure they are good.
Our God is created each and every person very good looking and beautiful
Psalm 139:13 “For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb.”
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”
The above verses shows how God is concerned about us even before we were formed in mother’s womb.
Our Lord not only created us wonderful and beautiful , He himself was beautiful. We read in Holy Bible in song of Solomon the ” He is chiefest of ten thousand”, “He is Rose of Sharon, Lilly of valley” In new testament we read that when Jesus Christ was on earth , people followed Him leaving behind their family, friends, job, wealth , possession and country. The very appearance of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ was beautiful and looking , hence people couldn’t move away from him, they went him where ever He went.
Matthew 15:32 Then Jesus called his disciples unto him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way.
It is sure that the gospel, teachings, miracles of Jesus Christ made those people to be with Him for three days . But imagine , if they have to forget about everything , even food and be with Him for three days is something great. For example If we keep on looking at the face of our beloved one for one day without food, will make us restless, at least we will feel hungry to eat food. But those people stayed without food with Jesus Christ for three days, this shows not only Jesus Christ teachings were beautiful, His words were bread 🍞 to them. Jesus”I am the bread of life”. Hence they didn’t feel hungry.
One man of God said , that “very appearance of Jesus Christ is very very beautiful” . The people who saw him while He was on earth , they just followed Him. I use to think that those who saw him were more privileged, because they saw God in human form. But what Jesus Christ said was ”
“Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.” -John 20:29 “
Yes we living in this Grace period are most blessed people, we believe in Jesus Christ, without seeing him. Our Jesus Christ is beautiful , hence a bride(Church) for him must also be beautiful. By birth God have created us wonderful and beautiful, but our walks of life, behavior, lifestyle have made our life unpleasant in His sight.
Our Jesus Christ lost all his beauty on the cross, he was stripped, bruised, scourged, crowned with thorns, nailed and pierced. Isaiah 53 chapter explains the agony of pain He suffered. He lost the beauty and sacrificed His precious life to save us from sin, to give us eternal life, to make us a perfect bride for Him.
Isa 53:2 ..he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. None of us make shall be ready to make up ourselves look ugly in front of others, each individual want to look pretty good in front of others, but our Lord Jesus Christ gave up his beauty to make our life beautiful. We have one life, let’s make it beautiful for the sake of Jesus Christ. As the age grows we get old and our spouse may not find us good, but as we grow older, we tend to grow older in spiritual life, makes us more and more beautiful in the sight of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our bridegroom Jesus Christ is a loving, faithful, merciful Holy God, only a bride who is faithful, holy, loving and caring can be a perfect match for Jesus Christ. Let us correct the wrong things in our life to be perfect match of bride for Him.
“My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand. “Song of songs 5 :10
“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.” – Psalms 91:1-4, 11-12
Praise the Lord , Psalms 91 chapter is a beautiful Psalms which most of us memorize and pray daily in the morning at the beginning of day , travel or journey. This Psalm we pray as God’s promise to protect us and care us.
But few times even though we may forget this prayer ( due to our ignorance or laziness) but still our God Jesus Christ is faithful God , protects us and cares for us. Last week I met with an accident, a two wheeler thrashed on me, great was the Grace of Jesus Christ , he protected me. Even though I fell down on road, I was not wounded any where not even a small scratch on my body. Our Jesus Christ is amazing God , he covers us with his grace and mercy and protects us. I thank God for his Mercy.
“Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.” – Psalms 91:3, 6-7, 10
God have give all above verse specially for us to trust only in Him in times of fear. People all over the world are in great fear of virus infection in China , which is spreading rapidly. In this difficult situation we have only one hope that is Jesus Christ alone. Only God can save us. Today’s science and technology is well developed, but still we cannot contain a virus infection, this shows of inability of man. No vaccine or antibiotic for that infection, our only hope is God!!
Let God have mercy on the people of China and all over world , forgive us, heal our sickness. Nothing happens in this world without the knowledge of God. God allows this thing to happen, so that we need to seek Him, pray , and get closer to God. God’s mercy is unmeasurable, surely He shall forgive us and stop this pestilence, plague or sickness.
“For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.” -Psalms 103:11
Abraham is called the father of “Faith”. He grew in faith not in a single day, or in occasion or in a situation, it took years for him to grow in faith hence he is called The Father of Faith.
1.First he left his father’s house and went seeking the unseen promised Land.
2. Abraham waited for 25yrs for the promise to be filled to receive Isaac .
3. After Isaac grew around 14 to 15 yrs old , he went on to sacrifice Isaac , believing and obeying God , that He will help him to get back the promised child. ( Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.-Heb 11:19)
God promised Abraham that He will bless him with a child at the age of 75yrs. But promise was full filled at age of 100 yrs. 25 yrs he patiently waited, after Isaac was born , God asked him to sacrifice at the age around 15 yrs. His faith in God was again tested after 15 yrs from the first test. But he obeyed to God.
The last thing in Abraham’s life was regarding the promised Land whose builder and maker was God himself. Abraham died at the age of 175 yrs believing God will give him the promised Land. Totally for more than 100 yrs Abraham was growing more in faith believing and trusting in God only.
” For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.”- Heb 11:10
Dear reader we may believe in God, but our faith may be small or little, God will help us to grow in faith step by step. So when God allows trials and temptations in our life, we don’t need to worry, we need to trust in Him and move forward, rest God will take care.
” Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.”- Heb 12:2
When Jesus is our author and finisher of our Faith , he will surely lead us to place where He is. Let God give us Grace to follow and trust only in Him.
” the LORD, is in the midst of thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.” – Zep 3:15
I wish all the readers a very happy New year ✨2020 ✨🎉. God be with you and your family throughout the year.
Above verse is the promise card for me which I got for this new year. God has been good to us all times wether happy or sorrow. Above verse we read in Zephaniah 3 chapter, it shows how God’s people go away from Him, hence judgment of God comes on them. But our God is merciful in vs 15 onwards we see Him forgiving them and blessing them.
Similarly all our efforts of hard work in work place, education, or business in last year we didn’t succeed. The reason is simple ,” we were away from God”. Hence we didn’t see success. But this year God has forgiven our mistakes, sins , iniquities and ready to restore our blessings.
We must “go close to God” means read Bible daily, family prayer, morning praise, personal prayer , all these we need to follow to receive blessings, not only worldly blessing but more important is for eternal blessings.
Let God Jesus Christ be with us, guide us, uphold us by His right hand and lead us throughout this year.
