Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : In my life at the time of my early twenties when I finished my Engineering, I wanted to become a computer programmer and leave for the west. I went to a south Indian metro and joined in a company as a trainee. As I was about to get in to the main stream companies, something severe happened. At that time my body grew very weak as I was already having hyper hyperthyroidism three times more than normal level. During my college days I represented my college once for a body building competition and was extremely healthy with a very strong body. So I was always self-confident and never thought that I would ever get such a problem in my body. This problem was there for nearly three years before that time, but it had been undetected because of my self-confidence to cover it. I started my way back home and became totally dependent on people to help me. This was the time I realised that I need God desperately and needed to trust Him at all time which includes both my good and the bad.

Then as I was taking medication, I was extremely weak. I would often eat to satisfy the hunger pangs caused by this disease and would immediately go to sleep because of extreme tiredness. I would keep my Bible near my pillow at that time and would read it for some time and then would go to sleep. I did this because only reading the Bible would bring inner peace to my weary soul and body. Then one day while I was sleeping in the afternoon, I heard a voice speak to me saying, "Do my work, I will bless you....". At first I struggled to come to terms with it. When I was young I always had a great desire to be a complete man at 25 years of age, means to be completely blessed in all areas of my life. But I wanted to pursue thing in the world to attain it. Thank God for His grace, he turned me in the opposite direction and made me walk through the path of suffering to reach it. Around 25 years of age when I joined in a small Bible college, God reminded me that I was blessed as I had been thinking and desiring in the past. I was not able to understand why God said to me like that at that time, because I was still partly under medication, great financial stress, shattered dreams and uncertainity about my own future. But praise God, now I have realised that God had said rightly that I am blessed even at that time, only now I am truly able to understand that spiritual blessing is the greatest of all of God's blessing and out of it will flow soulish, physical, financial and social blessing. Today I am so blessed to be a blessing to many.

Abraham believed God's promise and he became a friend of God. The same promise is also a promise to you and me, if we keep believing this promsie of God, very soon people will begin to see that we are blessed in our life by God. The ultimate reason God wants to bless us is to make us a blessing to every one around in our sphere of influence. In other words, the highest blessing we have receive from God is when we become a blessing to others. Stagnant water very soon starts to stink, but flowing water always stays afresh. The same hold for spiritual blessings too. When we bless others, we stay fresh with heavenly daily loads of blessings. When we try to gather it for ourselves, we very soon begin to stink. BE BLESSED AND BE A BLESSING! Blessings....

Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : In my life, the confidence of salvation came very late. But I was saved at the age of seven. I know of that day, I sat in our Church which was a makeshift thatched roof arrangement we had, because the big thatched Church we had before that time was set on fire by some miscreants just some months before. I began to pray in the afternoon time, but that was a unique day I can never forget. I was praying and a clear understanding came to me that I was a sinner in need of the Saviour Jesus, who I had heard our aunties speak regularly in the Sunday class and in the Church meetings, as I was born and brought up in that very place.

Then I felt a great remorse come upon me, I clearly understood at that time that the reason Jesus died on the Cross was because of my sin which I commited against God. Then as I continued praying for a long time, the very picture of Jesus Christ hanging upon the Cross with wounds on His hand and feet, and blood oozing all over the wounds and His whole body appeared in a vision just before my eyes. It broke my heart still deeply and I prayed and prayed until a great joy came to me, filling my childish heart with peace that cannot be described. Later my mother told me that I prayed until late night and that she called me to come and sleep, but I refused and continued to pray till I fell asleep.

But as I was a naughty guy when I was young, I then continued in my life as usual. We used to go to so many retreats and children's camps regularly as Dad was a missionary Pastor. At that time because we were children, the teaching of the commandments would be the prime thing that they would teach. According to their teaching if we again start doing some evil things, we would lose our salvation. So I would attend the spiritual meetings and feel like I was saved and then after I would come back to home and the normal life starts, then the so called salvation experience received during the retreat would dissipate in to thin air. This went on till the days of my late teens in which I became a hypocrite. But praise God, one day when I was hearing and singing a simple song which said, "Lord, you are changing me....", something supernatural started to happen inside of me as I kept singing it softly over and over again with a broken heart for my hypocrisy towards the Lord. Exactly at that time the Spirit of the Lord touched me and the assurance that I was was changed forever came over me. My dad who saw me how I would act well after retreats and revert back to the samw old life said this time, "Let us see, how long this will continue....". Hallelujah! But things changed that all the people who had seen me before were surprised at the sudden change that the Lord gave me in many areas, one of which was extreme anger which would always lead to unforgiveness. No turning back, the Lord has continued to change me from faith to faith by giving me grace upon grace to reach one level of glory to glory! Praise God whatever the Lord does shall be forever!

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #22 : "Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Thess 5:23).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : To many of us who have heard much sermons about holiness, sanctification, consecration, etc..., this word 'sanctify' might seems a big word of super-spiritual nature. But simply in a crux it means 'to be set apart' by God. In other words, when we have received Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour of our life, from that moment onwards God has set us apart for Himself and His purpose to be fullfilled through us. Many of us who try to be Holy and not able to attain our standard of perfection like our God, we should not be dicouraged by the set backs. We are trained day by day by the Holy Spirit to become like Jesus and be moulded in to the very spiritual image of Jesus (Rom 8:29-30).

This ultimate transformation of becoming like Jesus is what God calls as "glorification", but He has only promised to take us from one level of glory to another level of glory, as we keep walking in the perfection of the Lord day after day by faith (2 Cor 3:17-18). Of course we need to co-operate with God to be glorified in this life, but we need not strive with our own human strength of disciplining oneself by a set of rules and regulations to make this possible. The Holy Spirit himself will guide us in to His liberty and He himself has taken the responsibility to make us like Jesus. He is faithful to transform us in to the very spiritual image of Jesus and make us a living witness of Jesus in this dark world of perversity.

Some times as we keep walking towards our goal of becoming like Jesus inwardly in our Character, Satan and his demonic cohorts will try their best to make us believe that the perfection of Jesus cannot be achieved by making us fall in to the weakness of our sin nature that we might be battling with for a long time from the past days of our youth. But take heart, it is not our own strength that makes us walk in the perfection of Jesus, it is the power of God that keeps us walking. We are already perfect in our spirit-man inside us (Eph 4:24), what we are trying to do is to renew the fallen soulish independent man to be ruled by the nature of the spirit-man which is already like Jesus inside us (Eph 4:23). For this to happen we need to feed our spirit-man with the word of God and keep praying in tongues with all kinds of prayer daily in order to get stronger and stronger spirit-man. Over a period of time, the spirit-man becomes stronger and stronger to make us overcome more and more soulishness and be like Jesus on earth. But, don't forget it takes a lifetime to attain it, so with much perseverance run the race, each victory leads you to higher glory! THE MORE WE CO-OPERATE WITH GOD TO BE PERFECT LIKE JESUS, THE MORE WE WILL BECOME A HEAVENLY REPRESENTATION OF JESUS TO THE WORLD! Blessings.....

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #21 : "For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace." (Rom 6:14).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : As we desire to grow more and more in the Lord, the greatest struggle for a man and woman of God is to deal with the sin nature that will try to pull them down all the time. Many a times we get so discouraged when the sin nature shows it ugly face from inside us. We must understand that when our forefather Adam willfully disobeyed God and chose to eat the fruit of knowledge of good and evil, from that moment he lost the will of his own and Satan forever got a foothold on the soul of all humans (Rom 5:12). In other words, Adam and his progeny became a slave of Satan and his demonic suggestions which constantly induced in their soul-life.

By trying to be independent of God, man lost the total connection with God that he had in His spirit-man. But thank God, something happpened two thousand years ago that shifted the total destiny of all humankind. God sent His only begotten Son in to the world so that all who believed in Him got their spirit connection with God back which was lost in the Garden of Eden (Rom 5:19). Because of getting back the spirit-connection with God, we now again have got the the oppurtunity to use the power of God to control the soul-life and live a life of joy, peace and righteousness to please God again in this small life we have ahead.

When ever Satan and his cohorts try to influence us to rebel against God and make us live independently of Him, now those sins are already forgiven by God. After a momentary rebellion against God, when we again seek God's mercy by confessing to Him that we have sinned by the influence of our sin nature (1 John 1:10, 9), the wonderful thing is God sees us again as though nothing bad has happened at all and comes back in to fellowship with us. Why? The one and only reason God sees us as just men and we see Him as our justifier is because we have believed in Jesus who has become a substitude and a mediator between God and us (Rom 3:26; 1 Tim 2:5; 1 John 2:1-2). Now sin cannot rule over us as before because we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, not only OUR PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE SINS HAVE ALTOGETHER BEEN FORGIVEN OF US BY GOD (Eph 4:32; Col 2:13-14; Heb 10:12, 14-17), but also THE SINFUL CONSCIENCE THAT COMES TO US WHEN WE SIN PRESENTLY IS CLEANSED COMPLETELY WHEN WE CHOOSE TO CONFESS IT TO GOD (Heb 9:14; 1 John 1:7; 9). Now grace of God which is the forgiveness, cleansing, empowerment to do God's will, wisdom of God, righteousness of God, joy and peace is channeled through our spirit-man when we seek God for it and is freely received in Christ Jesus to rule and reign in this earth as the sons and daughters of God (Rom 5:20-21; 8:14; Gal 3:26). Praise the Lord! Blessings.....

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #20 : "Be filled with the Spirit." (Eph.5:18).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : To be filled with the Spirit of God can be equated to a man under the influence of the alcoholic beverages. In the natural, the man who is a drunkard spends his time working and then the first thing he wil do after he comes out of his work place is to visit a bar to take a bottle of wine in to his body. After he gets drunk, immediately he loses contol of himself and starts to feel as though he is out of all his miseries and all the realities of earthly sorrows that weighs him down. He becomes merry in his soul for a while and will feel like he is out there in to the midst of some great adventure of life on the sea (Eccl 9:7; 10:19). God originally created wine for men to know that making merry by wine is just for sometime and they will only be able to do it on occasions of blessings only (Amos 9:14; Psa 104:14-15), but seeking God to fill us with Himself through His Spirit will make us continue with the same effect of adventure through out our life (Eph 5:18). God invites us to come to Him to buy from Him regular wine and milk to sustain our spiritual life and be in ectasy always.

Getting baptized with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues is just a initial filling of spiritual wine that God gives as a approval for more and mroe filling of the Holy Spirit through out a believer's life time (Luke 11:13). But then many believers who were eager to be Baptized with the Spirit never used the spiritual gift of tongues daily in their prayer time to get filled again and again with the Holy Spirit. What a sad thing! God always gives all believers the gift of personal tongues to speak with God and edify themselves in order for them to be filled with the Spirit of God again and again, even daily, every moment of one's life by using this gift (1 Cor 14:2-4). Ectasy of the Spirit filling will take over us and draw us close to God in our mind and knowledge as we continue to speak more and more in tongues. It is one thing to be baptized in the Spirit once, but it is another thing to keep being filled again and again daily and serve the Lord with joy (Isa 28:11-12).

If you have not still received the gift of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, start to seek God for this unique experience as it belongs to you and all those who are saved (Acts 2:38-39; 10:44-47; 11:17). If you have already received it, begin to pray in the personal prayer tongues more and more and keep building a bigger building for God to dwell in your life and GLORIFY GOD AS A MIGHTY WITNESS OF JESUS IN OUR GENERATION (1 Cor 14:18). Learn to live in the continious ectasy of God and walk in the adventure of a lifetime in God. GLORY TO GOD! The ecstacy never dissipates and the adventure never ends for a lifetime when you are filled again and again daily by the Spirit of God. Best Wishes! Blessings....

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #19 : "David strengthened himself in the LORD his God." (1 Samuel 30:6).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : Many times when we follow God passionately the devil will leave all others and will intentionally come against us to destroy and discourage us in our walk with the Lord. Nobody will beat a dead snake because it does not have the potential to hurt anyone. The deceptive snake Satan knows very much about it and will not bother to touch the powerless lukewarm believers but will try his level best to discourage those who are in love with the powerful God of the whole universe. King David as a young teen age boy itself was anointed to be the king of the nation of Israel by the one and only prophet of God Samuel himself at that time (1 Sam 16:13). But from that movement on David faced much troubles than any other person who lived during that time. But because he was in love with the God who gives joy and strength to those who trust in Him, he learned a wonderful habit that carried him through the rest of his life as a man after God's own heart. People say, "The Character of a man can only be seen when he is squeezed to the point of death." Surely this man David had a time like this in his life when he revelaed what He had cultivated all the days from his youth.

Because David went to the wrong place [i.e. Philistines who were God's enemies because of idolatry] to align himself and his troops in order to protect themselves, he faced this crisis of a lifetime in his life. When he returned back to the place where they were, their families and belongings were, they found that Amalekites who were also the enemies of God plundered everthing they had and carried everthing away and left that city burned with fire. Many of us may be going through the same path because of our disobedience to the perfect will of God. Here David and his men seeing this wept and wept until they had no strength left in them to weep any more further. In the midst of it, David was greatly distressed because the people who were with him as his men of war spoke of stoning him. Know this, when you are down and out, that is when Satan will try his best to destroy you through the ones who are dearest to you. The same people who are your followers on the good day will try to be your killers on the bad day when they see that they have lost everything they had physically because of one wrong guidance which was done foolishly even though unintentionally. When people lose everything that is with them physically, only those who are spiritual will have the confidence that they have a supernatural God within them who not only cannot be lost but also has the power to help them gain everything back. When David was distressed, he did not act madly in unbelief as the people who were with him, but he encouraged and stengthened himself in the Lord (1 Sam 30:16).

We need to encourage ourselves in the Lord when we face crisis in our lives too. Even when all the people who are with us fail us and come against us, we should not fail to strengthen and encourage ourselves in the Lord. IN THE MIDST OF this TURMOIL, David SOUGHT for THE WORD OF THE LORD AND HIS PRESENCE. Because of this habit of God's face seeking that he had already developed, ON THAT DAY David ATTACKED AND RECOVERED ALL HIS BELONGINGS (1 Sam 30:17-18). Dear saints, if you have lost God's peace, joy and righteousness because of the enemies trickery he has played on you, today's is the LORD'S DAY, ATTACK THE ENEMY OF YOUR SOUL AND RECOVER ALL THAT WAS LOST. GOD IS WITH YOU TO GIVE YOU A MIGHTY VICTORY TODAY. Blessings....

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #18 : "Pray without ceasing." (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : To pray without ceasing is to pray without stopping. In other words it means to pray always. Many times when we ask for the souls of our loved ones, community of people, our city, state, nation and nations to be saved, as we see no tangible change in them for a long time we become discouraged and stop praying for them. But here is God's encouragement that He will aswer us without fail if we persist to pray for them. Jesus spoke about a man going to his friend's house at midnight to ask for bread to be set before his guest who have come to his house. The friend's answer was very discouraging to hear as he said that he is sleeping along with his children in the bed and that he refused to get up and provide for him the bread that he asked for. But because he persistently kept asking, seeking and knocking, his friend could not sleep properly because of his great disturbance. In other words, his persistence showed that he was serious enough not to go without receiving the bread that was needed to be set before the friend who had come to him on his journey (Luke 11:5-8).

What can we learn from this? The bread is the life of Jesus that we are asking for someone we know in our lives journey (John 6:33, 47-48). If we ask to God persistently for all the unsaved loved ones and people to be saved without getting discouraged, God who finds us that we are serious enough of what we are asking for, will surely give His answer positively by saving them at the right time in which He visits them.

Here is a glorious Testimony of persistence in prayer that saved the friends of George Mueller, even to the last one who was saved after he was dead. One day George Mueller began praying for five of his friends. After many months, one of them came to the Lord. Ten years later, two others were converted. It took 25 years before the fourth man was saved. Mueller persevered in prayer until his death for the fifth friend, and throughout those 52 years he never gave up hoping that he would accept Christ! His faith was rewarded, for soon after Mueller’s funeral the last one was saved. I pray that God might give us such faith and persistence to pray for our unsaved loves ones and people around the world, so that we might joyfully see them receive us in our heavenly home for eternity ahead. The man who saves people through persistent prayer is a wise son who gathers great riches for eternity (Prov 11:30; Matt 6:20-21; Luke 16:9). Blessings....

Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : Praying to God is a priviledge that is given to God's children's only. Sometimes when the things that we pray for doesn't come, we become discouraged and stop praying for it. Dear saints of God, God's delay are not denials. Instead His delay in answering us gives us the evidence that God is serious in answering us with the best possible thing which is in His mind. God has always answered me till today and not even one prayer of mine has been left unanswered. But you may be thinking by now how is it possible, are you serious about what you say? Yes I am. But His answers have come to me in three different unique word. Would you like to know what it is? He has always said Yes sometimes, No sometimes and Wait many times. For example if life is a crossroad, then seeking God is a traffic signal in which God blinks a green, red or amber light to indicate yes, no and wait or move slowly. God know your future even before you thought about it in your mind. The Bible beautifully describes this by saying, "Known to God from eternity are all His works." (Acts 15:18).

Whether God says to you today yes, no or wait, never forget that the hope of the righteous shall always be gladness in the end (Prov.10:28). Just encourage yourself saying, 'Don't miss it -- put your name here ---, your miracle is on the way.' God will always bring an end to that which is hoped only in His predetermined time, and not one second before this will He give an answer. This is what we call as the test of faith. After the test, there always comes a promotion and favor of God upon the person who has passed it. Blessed are those who have waited for God's answer 99 days and not stumble before the 100th day of breakthrough and favor of God, which stays for a lifetime. Who knows, tomorrow may be your day of miracle and answer for which you have prayed for years in the past. "25 The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him. 26 It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD." (Lam 3:25-26). CONTINUE EARNESTLY IN PRAYER OF HOPE AS GOD CONSIDERS IT AS THE ACID TEST OF YOUR DEVOTION TOWARDS HIM. Blessings....

We cannot see it through, but He sees and plans everthing for us ahead to walk in it and bring Him great glory on earth (Jer 29:11). Though God sees the broader picture and allows thing to happen whether good or bad according to His will, that doesn't mean that our God only cares to respond only the things that fit in to His long term plan that He has in His mind. He also responds to our emergencies and has given us the heavenly toll-free dial up numbers and promises to call on Him when ever we are in trouble (Psa 50:15; Jer 33:3).

Many times we invite much trouble from the devil because of our own foolish decisions to act by our own human instincts. But without fail God responds to us in our crisis and His heavenly toll free emergency lines are never jammed by any traffic. Instead he responds personally to all our problems that we bring to him daily. Praise the Lord! This is not all, God wants us to ask for a personal blessings for each and every endeavour that we undertake daily. And He is pleased to respond when we ask Him to prosper us. What a priviledge to avail the prosperity of heaven upon all the works we do!

When the Lord prospers us daily, we will be blessed in such a way that we will become a tremendous blessing to many many people around us. Those who come in to contact with us, whom God brings in our path will be terribly and tangibly blessed as we keep perpetually availing the power of heavenly prosperity to empower our earthly work. HEAVEN RESPONDS ONLY WHEN IT RECEIVES A REQUEST FOR ITS INTERVENTION TO COME UPON EARTH. Blessings....

Most frequently we fail in not continuing in prayer until the blessing is obtained, and in not expecting the blessing. Those who are disciples of the Lord Jesus should labor with all their might in the work of God as if everything depended upon their own endeavors. Yet, having done so, they should not in the least trust in their labor and efforts, nor in the means that they use for the spread of the truth, but in God alone; and they should with all earnestness seek the blessing of God in persevering, patient, and believing prayer. Here is the great secret of success, my Christian reader. Work with all your might, but never trust in your work. Pray with all your might for the blessing in God, but work at the same time with all diligence, with all patience, with all perseverance. Pray, then, and work. Work and pray. And still again pray, and then work. And so on, all the days of your life. The result will surely be abundant blessing. Whether you see much fruit or little fruit, such kind of service will be blessed." — George Muller

Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : In the Old Testament times the Testimony of God that he gave to Moses on the two tablet of stone was put inside the ark of the Covenant and there God promised to meet and speak to Moses from above the mercy seat which was the top cover of the ark, from between the two cherubim which are on the ark of the Testimony (Exodus 25:21-22). All the things that God did in the Old Testament times was a shadow of which Christ and we who are His spritual body on earth fullfill it in the New Testament times (Col 2:16-17). Glory! When we were born again through receiving Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, God put His own Testimony of the spirit of prophecy which is the today's symbolic representation of the ark of the covenant inside us (Rev 19:10).

God has promised to speak to us from our spirit-man in which He is enthroned inside us. But remember in the Old Testament the High Priest of God only once a year went in to the Holy of Holies where the ark was kept, that too not without the blood of goats and calves to get a covering for the sins that has been committed in ignorance (Heb 9:7). But praise God for the BLOOD OF JESUS! Now we go confidently in to the real Holy of Holies which is in heaven through our spirit-man with the Blood of Jesus which gets active over us when we release our faith (Heb 10:19-23). Now all we did to receive a covering for our sins once and for all is when we confessed to God that we were a sinner and received Jesus as our Lord and Savior. On that split moment, God chose to cover all our past, present and future sins under the blood of Jesus once and for all and wiped off all our sins, iniquities and transgressions out of His sight (Heb 10:10-12, 14, 17; Psa 103:12; Col 2:13-14).

Now we have gone beyond our sins being covered over our body and soul to being cleansed, sanctified and preserved blameless for His Holy use (Heb 9:19-22; 1 Thess 5:23-24; Eph 2:10). We now confess our sins as soon as possible when we have sinned in order to be cleansed from it and be used continually as His ministry vessels (1 John 1:9). Praise the Lord! The next time you confess to God, make sure to hear the voice of God with which He has promised to speak to you from your spiritual Holy of Holies in your spirit-man! It may be a small still voice or a picture or a thought or even a strong feeling about your situations. When you are tuned in to the voice of God, peace of God will fill you and give you a acknowledgment receipt that God has heard your prayer. ALL YOU NEED FOR A CHANGE TO HAPPEN IN YOUR LIFE IS TO HEAR THE WORD OF GOD FROM INSIDE YOU, IT IS NOT FAR AWAY BUT IS CLOSER THAN THE AIR YOU BREATHE (Acts 17:28; Rom 10:6-10). Get connected to God daily and you will be a living epistle read by all men. God writes in your heart His law and makes you hear and live a God-life on earth for all to see and GLORIFY HIM (Heb 10:16-17)! Blessings....

Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : Some people think that God only speaks to the spiritual man and not to the common man. God is not a respecter of person and he speaks to all those who are willing to listen to His voice. The spiritual man hears the voice of God because He is tuned in the supernatural frequency and direction of heaven. But those who have set their heart affection much on the things of the earth and its vanity, have set their spiritual antennas in the wrong direction. Then how can one hear the voice of God? I vivdly remember a couple of months ago, when a dish antenna installer came to my house to install it. They said that if you by chance block the dish antenna which is set in the required direction through any canopy or covering, you will not get any picture or signal in your television. What does it teach us?

When we allow sin and unbelief to cover over our spiritual antennas, immediately we lose the heavenly signal of God's voice and His awesome guidance in our heart. This covering over our spiritual antennas which happens through sin is earthly and opposite to God's required set direction, this is what God calls as hardening of heart. If we continue to take the wrong choice and are hell bent to keep hearing the earthly voices and enjoy sin, God will let us go our own way after He sees us keep persisting in it. The result will be a devastation for our spiritual life for eternity ahead. But God has given a way out for every believer. Praise the Lord for the BLOOD OF JESUS!

Knowleagable sins or unknowledgeable sins, both are cleaned for the confessor. "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9). This is all we need to do to set our heavenly antennas back in the right position and to get in to fellowship with God and throw away sinful things that taunt us. SET YOUR MIND ON THINGS ABOVE WHICH ALWAYS SOFTENS YOUR HEART TO HEAR GOD'S VOICE, BUT IF YOU SET YOUR MIND ON EARTHLY THINGS, IT WILL HARDEN AND BLOCK YOU FROM HEARING GOD'S LOVELY VOICE. So I hope you will make a good choice not only because it is right, but also because of your love towards God! Blessings....

A father will always wants his son to be like him, live like him and above all do things exactly like him. In times of crisis we stop looking to our God who is in control of our life. At that moment we lost our focus on God, the trials seems to us bigger than our God who is infinitely bigger than our biggest trial. Don't Tell God How Big Your Problems Are, Tell Your Problems How Big Your God Is! When you do that, you are building yourself up in the faith that always pleases God. When God is pleased, you know how He will intervene with a vengeance to deafeat all our enemies.

The enemy might be a sexual addiction, pronography, lust of the eyes, over eating, jealousy, anger, low self-esteem, depression, etc...but all those evil things will wind itself up and run away from you as you keep living by faith in the promise of God which says, "I will surely deliver three." God has used the word "Surely" to emphasize that our deliverance is in His mind always and that we should remind ourselves that God is involved in our fight of faith with us to bring the final victory permanenetly though it may seem to be otherwise. God has promised deliverance for those who dare to fight against all the addictive behaviours of the devil and his demons, who always try to bring it in to our lives to weaken our faith. THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH TO PLEASE GOD AND WILL NOT DRAW BACK IN TO UNBELIEF. When we try our best to hold on to the promises of God in faith, God will do the rest for us. After the fight of faith comes the true rest of God in His Presence always. Blessings....

Father God was so pleased with the sacrifice of Jesus which was done on behalf of us that he foresaw it all and began to distribute all His riches to his sons who have received Jesus by faith. Like beggars and clothed in the rags of our self-righteousness we came to our Father God, but because of the transferance of all His wealth in to our accounts through Jesus, suddenly we have become billionaires of the heaven kind.

Now Father God sees us all as a billionaires son spritually and in all other way through Jesus Christ his only begotten Son. IT IS HOW WE SEE OURSELVES IN FAITH THAT WILL MAKE US LIVE EITHER AS GOD'S SON OR CONTINUE AS A BILLIONAIRE WITH A BEGGARISTIC POVERTY RIDDEN MENTALITY. You can't change a beggar to be rich until you change the way he thinks about himself. So choose daily to wear this royal robe of righteousness by being conscious of it which Christ Jesus has given to you freely and personally. I bet you, you will never be the same person of your past but will have to strength say no to sinful temptations and overcome in the present time for the GLORY OF GOD! Blessings....

Many times as choices come to us, we see through the temporal glass of earthly benefits and miss eternal benefits which are more important in relation to God and eternity. When choices come to us, immediately we should tell to God to influence us in such a way that only His perfect will should be done in our life as it is already planned in God's blueprint in heaven. What will happen is, doors that might seem to be good to us might closed many times and doors which we might think as a normal thing might open up. Here lies in it the wisdom of God, God's greatest gift come to us without any wrappings over it and in seemingly insignificant ways.

But exactly opposed to it is the wordly packages that Satan might bring, with wrappers so glamourous and claiming things that are not really inside it. At that moment of time, we should learn to say to God, "Lord not my will, but thy will be done in my life." Believe me, you will be the most blessed person for eternity ahead when you respond to God like that. God's heart will be filled with joy and satisfaction to bestow all the benefit of heaven for such a person like that. God always puts a invisible mark over such people to keep them close to His heart. Do you want to be one such person? God is waiting for you, just let Him in to your life and He will abide in you forever. THERE IS NOTHING LIKE HAVING GOD ON OUR SIDE 24/7, AND TO ENJOY HIM AND BE ENJOYED BY HIM. Blessings....

This may be one of the chief weapon of Satan to quench the fire that the Holy Spirit that is stirring higher and higher day by day in our lives. As an old proverb says, "Tell me about your friends and I will tell about yourself." True dear Saints, When we choose wrong frienship, soon our love for the Lord will diminish because of their wrong influences that will affect our thoughts and daily choices we make.

How important it is in our lives to choose godly friends who will ignite the fire of the Holy Spirit more and more in our lives cannot be stressed more than this to be overstated. What does the Scripture say of this? "Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.”" (1 Cor 15:33). In other words, WHAT YOU WILL BE IN THE FUTURE FOR GOD'S GLORY DEPENDS ON THE WISE FRIENDSHIP THAT YOU CHOOSE TODAY AND SURROUND YOURSELF AROUND. So saints ask the Lord for wisdom when you choose acquaintance who will influence you. Your friendship will either set the destiny of God to be ablaze for HIS GLORY or else will completely quench it to make you live a unglorifying life and completely mess it up. So choose to say like Jesus and all the godly saints who lived in the past, "I am a companion of all them that fear thee [O God! My Redeemer and Saviour!]." Much Blessings.....

We can identify those times as the time of distress in our soul where awful feelings for no reason shows up. Then we are hit by the enemy exactly at the point of our weakness. Just after those times we will continue to feel as though the Lord has gone far away. But He has not. God stays true to HIS WORD in which He has promised, "...I will never leave you nor forsake you." (Heb 13:5,c). These times of distress are the times we should encourage one another in the Lord. For this reason our God has given a fellowship. Praise God that we are able to experience the fellowship even virtually in our generation.

When our brethren is discouraged, we should lift them up through a good word and a God-word of prophecy. We may never know, after they come out of the Chastisement of the Lord, they might be used to do a ministry of encouragement to us and every one around us and be a great blessing to many. The fruit of the ministry will also belong to you for eternity. Always remember that the Kingdom of God operates in Multi-level Network (MLN) strategy where the supply force is compensated not only for supply they personally gave in Jesus name, but also for the supply of others they recruit, creating a downline of suppliers and a hierarchy of multiple levels of reward compensation for eternity (1 Thessalonians 2:19-20; 1 Peter 5:1-4).

When riches increase trust not in it, but rather use those riches to please God and extend His Kingdom. This is the greatest joy a man can ever have on this planet earth. To give back God the time, talent and treasure that He has given to us is a reasonable sacrifice that we can do now as His child. God has a set time for every one of us, it is how we use it in a godly way will determine the protection we will have in the day of God's wrath that comes upon the evil world (Psa 90:10). Knowing this truth made Moses the great man of God to ask God to teach him to number his days and use it all in a godly way for HIS GLORY (Psa 90:12).

The promise of God regarding the protection from Wrath of God during the end time and beyond has been revealed by Apostle Paul who said, "...[We who] wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come." (1 Thess 1:10). So rejoice in the Lord that you will be Raptured before the wrath of God is revealed upon the earth.

After a period of time, day after day we start to lose our joy because we unconsciously start to think that because we are good, God is showing favours to us instead of showing it to another person who deserves it not. What has happened? We have forgotten that all our past, present and future sins have been forgiven to us for Jesus' name sake. We have actually done nothing of great value to God and that we cannot do it until we die to deserve HIS GLORIOUS GIFT OF SALVATION. But the only thing we can do to God is to be grateful to Him for having shown His UNCONDITIONAL GRACE that BROUGHT UNDESERVED FAVOUR UPON OUR LIVES. The next time we start to think that we deserve to be blessed, immediately recognize that we are trying to claim God's blessings using our own name and God's answer will always be a "big no", "You don't deserve it".

WE WHO LIVE BY FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS CONSTANTLY, ARE THE TRUE OVERCOMERS ACCORDING TO GOD.

Å℘◎﹩☂øł☤ḉ ℚυ◎тℯṧ : "If we cling on presumptuously to any known sins without asking the Lord to help us overcome it, the Lord will not hear our prayers (Psa 66:18). But for those who turn to the Lord with a penitent and a broken heart when they sin, the Lord will get moved with compassion and will not only hear their prayers but also will immediately act on behalf of them to rescue and establish them in His way of life (Joel 2:12-13; Psa 34:18).

Being open towards God without hiding our sin is a sure sign that we have a penitent and a broken heart. People who hide their sins fail to understand that God knows their sins even before they confess. But confession to God reveals and acknowledges to Him our willingness to receive His forgiveness and overcoming power to reign spiritually as his sons and daughters on earth. Thanks and Blessings...." - Abraham Israel

Å℘◎﹩☂øł☤ḉ ℚυ◎тℯṧ: ‎"When we focus all of our mind on the Lord Jesus and keep thinking on Him alone, our soulish flesh will hit the lowest point and spiritually we will be hitting the highest percentage of real service to God without us realising that we are doing it." - Abraham Israel

Giving to God

Å℘◎﹩☂øł☤ḉ ℚυ◎тℯṧ: "Do not think all the time what can I get from God, but ask yourself and think, what can I give to God who has given me His everything through sacrificing His only Begotten Son Jesus Christ." - Abraham Israel

Art of Living #2

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #2 :  "I will cry unto God... that performeth all things for me." (Ps.57:2)

Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : When we can't see any light at the end of the tunnel that we are going through temporarily, and the pathway seems more dangerous and slippery, all we can do is to cry to God in Faith who never fails to keeps His promise. Usually people say, men don't cry. In other words, it is not right for men to cry as it does not bring out their manliness but convey a wrong opposite message. But I say godly men do cry many times, but the main difference is, they don't cry to or before people but to the God who carries them, comforts them in their trouble, gives faith to live victoriously and fills them with hope to look forward to the next day. Thanks and Blessings....:)

Art of Living #1

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #1 : ‎"[Jesus]...said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."" (Luke 10:2).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : OUR PRAYER WILL MAKE THE FATHER TO SEND MORE LABOURERS IN TO HIS HARVEST. Why not choose to pray for A MIGHTY HARVEST from today sincerely? The rewards are great for the prayer warriors who set the plans of God rolling. God moves on behalf of His people. We cannot do mighty works on our own without God, God will not do his work without us. We need to partner with God before we can see this generation fully changed by the power of God. Thanks and Blessings...

Life Plan

‎"All our plans must be of the vision of God and that which the Spirit has downloaded for us from heaven, or else no matter how much detailed the plans may be that we have done independently, there is no guarantee for success in life and eternity. GODS PLAN FOR US IS THE ONLY BEST PLAN THAT NEVER FAILS AT ALL." - Abraham Israel
