Limits of Heavenly freedom !

“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. – ” 1 Corinthian 10:23

The above verses was said by Apostle paul. His life is a very good example for us. He once was against Jesus , but after getting saved he suffered much for christ. There was none like him in bible who suffered for Jesus Christ.  Apostle paul during ministry when there was opportunity to get to gether with worldly people (gentiles) he did not do it.

During his ministry , he said aboves verses regarding eating and drinking with gentiles.  He says do not be partakers of gentiles table and also with Lords table.

We may get together with unsaved worldly friends and dine with them and drink alcohol which is wrong. We still try to justify with God, saying that was party arrangef by office people, if am absent, or do not drink , they will get offended. But we forget that our Lord Jesus gets offended, when we mingle with them and drink. Whatever reason we may give but wrong is a wrong in the sight of God.

God have called us to lead a separated holy life. Separation from worldly things. What are the worldly things which may defile us
1.internet  2.television 3.social networking 4.movies 5.using costly gadgets like mobile, tab etc.. 6. Costly car, big mansions etc… … the list goes on…
All the above thins are very  much essential, but we must have a limitation on them. By using internet  and tv we learn both good and bad things, regarding social networking – we spend much time on checking and reading others comments, pictures and status, house is very much essential thing but constructing big and luxurious house is not an essential. To sleep we require about 6*4 feet cot only , hence constructing big luxury house can be avoided. Lastly car or bike is needed for our daily travel but buying luxury car or bike is  only waste of money. All above things easily separates us from God. Hence God expects us to live a simple life. To go to heavenly we live a humle life, a life of simplicity. We read in bible that it is difficult for rich to enter heaven. Hence better to be simple.

God would have blessed us abundantly, but God is always watching us how we live, whether we live a simple separated life or a worldly luxury life ?

” the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. ” – James 4:4

Crying is not weakness, encourage yourself , God will strengthen you and give you victory !

“Then David and the people that were with him lifted up their voice and wept, until they had no more power to weep.” – 1Samuel 30:4

King David was very much disappointed when he returned to ziklak,  his two wives, daughters, sons,  wife and childrens of his soldiers were also taken as captive by amalekites.

His own men were about to stone him, because they were greatly distressed and grieved.  It was a hopless situation where no one can help except God.

David encouraged himself in the Lord his God, he enquired Lord , pursued the amalekites, defeated them, and recovered his two wives, daughters, sons, and all that was lost was recovered.  He also got the spoils of battle.  Like this God turned a failure to victory.

Even we may be in a situation where would have lost money, wealth, property. Our own friends would have insulted us and mocked us, because of our failures. We need not worry, there is a God , who will turn our failure into success. Perhaps in the sight of men, our present condition may be very poor, but God will never allow us to be in that situation, he will create a new way, for God to give a job, riches, wealth are easy things. There can be misunderstandings, broken relationship, where no one can help to reunite with family, but Our lord Jesus will help us to find a solution, God himself will solve all our problems. Do not loose hope, God will help us.

“Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: ” – Psa 144:1

No one knows when Jesus Christ will come !!

” But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. ” – Matt 24:36

Only our heavenly father knows about rapture(second coming of Jesus christ). In matthew 24th chapter we read of all the prophecies that will happen during second coming of jesus. Those things are happening right in front of our eyes. But still how long will it take no one knows not even Jesus christ the son of God. One thing is sure that He will come. Only our heavenly father Lord the God knows it.

Let us not be decieved when somebody says that Jesus is going to come on a particular day or time, because Jesus himself doesn’t know when his second coming us?. Hence Let us always be prepared to meet God. Faithful is He who have promised, surely he will come.

” And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”- Rev 22:12

God gives you respect!

“Though the Lord be high,yet hath been respect unto the lowly. But the proud he knoweth afar off.”- Psalms 138:6

People of this world may honour us and give respect ,which depends on our riches, education,  power and authority, famous personality,  beauty and last thing to mention is spiritual people.
But God gives you respect seeing our humbleness.
God resists the pride, but gives grace to humble.

Our education ,qualification,job,  family  situation may be such that no one may give respect. We ourselves known that none can help except God. But one thing is true that the creater of heaven and earth  respect us and honours us. God doesn’t expect any worldly things like edu., rich…etc from us, he wants us only to be humble. He needs us to humble because heaven is only for humble people. Dear child of God do not be disappointed and dejected when people despise you. Lord Jesus loves you.

“Blessed are meek for they shall inherit earth.”

Purpose of birth of Jesus christ

  Jesus Christ was born in this world for to correct the mistake of fallen man. In this month of december we remember and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

The relationship of God and adam was like father and son. Adam is called the son of God. Since the fall of Adam, God sent him out of eden garden. Eden garden had the tree of life, since man committed sin, father had to take strict decision and sent him out.  God prevented man to eat fruit of tree of life and live in fallen sinful nature for eternal.
Hence our saviour Jesus christ was born to correct man’s sin. Jesus Christ way to correcting mankind was different way. He gave only two Commandments. Two commandments were of Commandments of Love. Jesus christ led a perfect life, sacrificed himself for the redemption of mankind.
The relation of Jesus and church is compared to bridegroom and bride. This relationship is stronger than the previous relationship of  father and son i.e. God and adam.
Hence we who live in the period if grace enjoy the mercy of God  for His forgiveness. 

Jesus loved us so much, that He humbled himself,came down from heaven, was born on this earth in human form , overcame sin, led a perfect holy life , died on cross and resurrected. Now He is waiting for His beloved Bride(Church).   let us be  prepared to meet our bridegroom.
” 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
