Apostolic Quotes

Å℘◎﹩☂øł☤ḉ ℚυ◎тℯṧ :

"If we know that all things God works together for our good, then we should continue to love God more and more, and by faith we should keep expecting from Him what is beyond all expectation to make a turnaround in our lives even to the last moment in which God will always do miracles as He does often. Never give up, God is a time proven miracle maker so keep trusting in His faithfulness!" — Abraham Israel

"We might not have garden environment outside us always to enjoy, but in deep communion, intimacy and fellowship with God, He has given us who are His children the privilege to have and enjoy and also perpetually maintain a garden state of mind which transforms the way we think and feel, and helps us see everything around us as a reflection of the heavenly garden state of mind we experience within. Thus we do not experience heaven when we go there one day, but we experience it now and have a foretaste of it for the Glory of God!" — Abraham Israel

"Though Adam and Eve lost the garden of Eden by their sin, when they turned back to God for remedy, He by the blood of His sacrifice clothed them and covered their nakedness to drive away their shame, fear and self-righteousness, and instead replaced a wonderful garden mind-set through giving them His very own righteousness, peace and joy as a gift for close communion with Him and helped them walk again with dignity before Him to keep their head held high as His Children. Today in our lives, though we might not see the garden again externally around us, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior we have the guarantee of the internal garden of our mind blossoming day after day to be kept in a serene garden state of mind internally!" — Abraham Israel

"Worrying about something is equivalent to saying to God that we understand that He is in control but He still needs our help to solve our problems, you can see how foolish it is to think in that way and express it that way to God. So the solution is to pray for everything that bothers us and commit it to the Lord at all times, so that our mind can experience God's supernatural peace beyond all our natural understanding to keep our thoughts and our heart quiet to be at ease and rest in the Lord which will express to the Lord that He is in complete control of our lives, and that He needs no help from us to solve all our problems as we trust in His power and wisdom to bring the best of solution for every problems that arises in our lives. God is very pleased with us when we are at ease through His peace in our lives!" — Abraham Israel

"God has promised to do a new things in the lives of all of us who believe in His mighty power, which is making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, and to make us see the transformed reality of heaven's abundant life now which is the reward for what we have believed until now in all the areas of dry lands, wilderness and wasteland that has been there in our lives. God has promised and he is not a man to change, only believe and all things are possible!" — Abraham Israel

"Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling." (Phil.2:12, NKJV).

We do not earn salvation by our works in anyway, it is a free gift from God through which we become the children of God. Salvation comes to us by grace through faith and both of the things comes as a gift from God, and so we cannot boast about our salvation as though we have done something for God. But we know as we have been rebels, enemy and selfish in our unsaved condition, but while we were yet sinners in that condition God in Christ Jesus through His unconditional love not only made us to be redeemed, forgiven and justified completely, but God in his benevolence adopted us as His very own children. O what a privilege! Out of thankfulness and gratitude for what God has done for us, we start to work out our salvation with fear of God and trembling which actually God works from within us. What do we actually do after receiving the great salvation? God works in, we work out what He works in. So we become a partner to God to make things which were impossible to do previously in our lives to be made possible to do with God. With God's hand in ours, we start to walk as great friends. Some times we run ahead of our Heavenly Father in our zeal to please Him, but on the way when we fall, He comes and picks us up to smile over us and enjoy growing in relationship with Him. Truly God becomes a Father to hold us in this life, so that we become one with His Heart to enjoy the life to come with Him. When you enjoy your journey with God, God enjoys you and it pleases God immensely to know how much you enjoy him, and without fail He smiles back over your life!

"Be of one mind, live in peace." (2 Cor 13:11, NKJV).

To experience oneness of mind whether in Church, work place, home or in any other place with what is right, and differ in the things that are wrong graciously without hurting people is in itself is the grace of God. When we are one in mind with the Holy Spirit through praying in the Spirit constantly, our mind will automatically start to gain the wisdom to do what is right in God's sight and please Him, who will make even our enemies to go along with us in unison. The most beautiful thing to experience within a marriage is the blessedness of the Holy Spirit uniting both the husband and wife to become one in Him with a unison of mind to become one flesh. Devil will try his best to destroy this beautiful mind of the Spirit within by blowing out of proportion the things which we differ by nature, tradition and language, but when we choose to get back in to the stream of the Spirit and take efforts to maintain it, the result will be the peace of God that will continue to flow in our lives and families. The same thing can happen in all the scenarios of our lives so that we may live in peace at all places for the Glory of God as much as possible. May God help us all to be of one mind in the Spirit, and thus live in peace!

"Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory." (1 Cor.15:57, NKJV).

No matter where we are in life, when we are children of God, all things gives us a experience to take us to the ultimate place of victory in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. The great thing about faith life is, there can be no failures at all as Jesus is in the boat of our life in which we are traveling. We will pass through calm and peaceful times, then we will also face the rough and stormy times, through it all the Lord has promised to be with us, never to leave nor forsake us. The Lord will use those times to teach us valuable lessons of life which we cannot learn in heaven, but only on this earthly pilgrimage which will qualify us for a eternal reward equivalent to how much we have learnt to become in to the image of the Son of God Jesus Christ our Lord. What a privilege we have on earth, to lay up treasures in heaven for a privileged life with God in the future! Whether it is a temporary failure or a permanent victory, our Lord Jesus uses both of it to give us a experience to learn important spiritual lessons which end in eternal victory at the end. Thanks be to God who has given us a privileged spiritual position in Christ Jesus to look forward only for victory at the end of it all!!!!

"Walk prudently when you go to the house of God; and draw near to hear." (Eccl.5:1, NKJV).

Most of us who go to the house of the Lord tend to think it as a time to relax, participate in worship and hear the Word of God to be blessed enough to come back home and prolong for one more week ahead with whatever blessing we have received in the house of God. But little do we realize that when we come to the house of God, God expects us to draw near to hear what He wants to say regarding ourselves, our situations and our spiritual growth. God doesn't want the house of God to just become a spiritual school where knowledge keeps increasing regarding God, but He actually wants it to be a family where He wants His children to increase in love towards Him, and also wants them to hear what He has to say to them and hear from them what they have to say to Him. If only we could realize that the Church assembly is not present to do the routines, but rather experience the ravishing Divine encounter with our Daddy God, then our heart will long for the house of God and we will run always to hear rather than to go there with a consumer mindset to think what we have get from there. May God helps us to long for the Presence of God in our lives and enjoy every moment of its glory as much as we are enjoyed by God.

"I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters." (2Cor.6:18, NKJV).

As far as we can imagine, the closest relationship in planet earth we can imagine to all of us is the Father-Son and Father-Daughter relationship that we have with our earthly fathers. As our earthly parents have their own shortcomings in various areas of their lives we know that they were not perfect, but mostly we also know that all of them try to be perfect as much as possible to their knowledge. Some of them by being too strict all the time has made us fearful of them, others by being too lenient have made us become foolishly self-willed in many areas of our lives. But if we think that we are the only one who had such parents, welcome to the club as all of us have only imperfect parents. Our earthly parents do train us for sometime, for our own good. And as we accept their willing correction, we become better and better in our Character, and even sometimes we just resemble them before others. Our Heavenly Father has adopted us as his own sons and daughters when we believed in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. What happened next is just amazing, the God who created us and the whole Universe around us have personally become a Father to us and have taken the responsibility of taking care of us for eternity ahead. Hallelujah! So He expects us to know more about Him by being in intimacy with the Character of His personality through reading His Love Letter the Bible through which He has promised to reveal Himself more and more to us, and by knowing Him deeply He wants us to avoid what He dislikes so that we can become more and more like Him in our Character which will always please Him. So we must learn to hate sin, we should learn not to love the world which is passing away and must learn to live selflessly by taking up the Cross of doing His will which He has uniquely designed for us. All of these things as it increases more and more, day by day more progressively, our Daddy God who always expects us to grow more and more in our spiritual lives, could stand and gaze upon our lives to rejoice over us and will be able to always smile over our lives seeing our Love for Him.
