when I am weak, then am I strong !!!

Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.-2Corin 12:10

Praise the Lord, This is a very beautiful verse which i always used to read when i get demotivated, depressed or failures . When we look at unending problems or failures our only comfort is Lord Jesus Christ. He is answer to all our questions and failures. A person who always wins may not learn much, but failures will teach us many things, particularly it mould our character to that of Jesus Christ. We may feel weak inside when we face failure but at time we must say the above verse “when I am weak, then am I strong”

One man of God said, an ink spill over the wall if we give to an artist , he will paint a beautiful art on the wall using that spill. Our God is also like that artist, what ever may be our mistakes, failures, Jesus will turn that to sweet victory. The victory may be delayed but it is not denied, as Jesus overcame this world, He will enable each one of us to overcome this world. Only the overcomers will inherit the Kingdom of God.

Perhaps may be people around us may not understand us, our own children, parents, friends may not understand us, but Jesus Christ always understands us, He knows our problems, He comforts us, He cares and leads us not only in this present world but even unto to the eternity. May God give us grace to be strong in Faith, rest God will do.

” He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; “-Roman 4:20

Healing by blood of Jesus Christ

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. – Isaiah 53:5”

Praise the Lord for his grace and mercy, the above verses is a strong promise that Lord Jesus Christ have given us. When we fall sick , we need to clearly examine our live why this sickness or disease have come to me. By above verses come come to know because of our transgressions ,inquities and sin we get sick.

When we seek the mercy of God he is ready to forgive our sins and heal our sickness. Our God is rich is mercy to forgive us – Psalms 103:11 “ For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.” When ask forgiveness He will surely forgive and heal us.
We get sick because of trial from Satan. Some times God permits Satan to try us. Hence during trial time we need to hold on to promise of God and overcome our sickness.

We do get disease or have disease by birth , the reason for this is to reveal the healing power of Jesus Christ
When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. John 11:4

Whatever may be the reason we to pray to God and find the reason and seek mercy of God and receive healing. There is nothing impossible for God. God is able to heal all types of sickness

“And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people” – Matthew 4:23

Let us pray and claim the promises that God have given us through Jesus Christ.

“For I am the Lord that health thee”- Exodus 15:26

He guides you !

If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
– John 3:12-13

We ourselves doubt whether  heaven exists or not when things happens contradictory to our expectations. In case of unsaved people , they question whether God really exists and heaven exists, Because no one have seen heaven. our Lord saviour  Jesus Christ came from heaven lived a perfect life and set an example for us and taught us the qualities of life to inherit heaven. To inherit heaven first thing we need is faith that God is true, Jesus is the only way to heaven.

When we board a bus we don’t see driver face, but still trust him,  that he will take us to our destination. Similarly we board train or flight we don’t know who drives it, but still we believe we will reach our destination.

But to  us to trust in our Lord Jesus Christ is very very tough or difficult. Some times our own experience or knowledge may tell us even God cannot help, But that is completely wrong.

-Abraham begat Isaac at 100yrs age,

-Noah built ark and was only family escaped flood on this whole earth.

-By faith walls of Jericho fell.
Hebrews 11th chapter we read the real heroes of faith. And last verse is not yet complete, it will complete with “Our name”. This shows heaven is not for coward people but only for courageous and heroes.

We can become hero not by our own ability or knowledge but by the guidance and grace of Jesus Christ.  Let God give us Grace only trust in Him always.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6

Little time !!

” In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.” – 1 Cor 15:52

I use to wonder why Jesus Christ have kept fraction of second  (moment ) for Rapture. If God would give one minute,  one hour,  or a day for transformation, then all most everyone one will ask forgiveness from Jesus Christ and become worthy to enter kingdom of Heaven.  Imagine I we have to board a train, we must get prepared well and go to station and wait for that particular time when the train arrives. We will have only few minutes to search our seat and occupy it. Similarly let us imagine Rapture (second coming of Jesus ),if rapture takes place in a moment, then only the well prepared believers will go to Heaven. If the rapture takes place for more than a second, minute or hour, then the people who are not able fly with other believers will surely ask forgiveness from Jesus Christ. Our Lord Jesus is merciful God, will surely have to forgive them,that situation is almost everyone will get time to repent,  pray and escape the judgement day. But God is not pleased with that,  His aim is only the perfected saints , who are truely worshing Him must be caught up in His coming. Hence God have planned rapture will take place in a moment, less than a fraction of second . In a “moment” we will not be able repent, pray and get ready.
Since the second  coming of Jesus (rapture ) may be at any time and the duration is less than a second we must be ready always.
Let God give us grace to prepare for His coming. 
Maranatha!

” For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” 1Thess 4:16-17

First appearance

image

“Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.” Mark 16:9

  After resurrection our Lord saviour Jesus Christ first appeared to Mary Magdalene.
Mary Magdalene and Mary came early in the morning to the sepulchre, but to their surprise the Angel came and rolled the big stone. The Angel told He (Jesus ) have risen. Hence Mary Magdalene went back and brought the disciples of Jesus. They also saw that the sepulchre was opened,  the stone was rolled out,  only the clothes of Jesus was found.
The disciples who came there went home. But Mary alone was standing.

John 20:11 ” Mary stood without at the sepulchre weeping:

John 20:15 Jesus said unto her,woman why deepest thou?

This is the first appearance of Jesus after resurrection.  Jesus didn’t appear to his mother Mary,  or His beloved  disciples who came to see the sepulchre but His first appearance was to Mary Magdalene. Why ??

The disciples who came there went home, they didn’t search for him alive or seek for his body.

But Mary was seeking Jesus because,  Jesus delivered her from evil spirits, she had experienced that miracle in her life. She was seeking Lord Jesus with contrite heart, her sorrow was deep. When she didn’t find Jesus body. She asks Angel to tell her where they have kept Jesus body.(John 30:13)

Mary Magdalene was truly seeking  Jesus with great sorrow,  Hence Jesus appeared to Her First

Likewise Jesus is going to appear only those who seek him fervently.
We need seek him diligently.  we need seek God for our spiritual needs, We need to be always in prayer seeking God’s plan in every aspects in our life. When we seek Jesus diligently surely He will appear to us. Let God help to grow in prayer life. Praise the Lord.

Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? – John 11:25
