Today's Bible Verse To Ponder Over

tOdAy's bIbLe vErSe tO PoNdEr oVeR:

"But the Lord is faithful, who will establish you and guard you from the evil one." (2 Thess 3:3).

The Lord is faithful, to me this is true salvation in this life and in the life to come. To me this very statement, 'The Lord is faithful,' is more than enough for me to give assurance to throw my hopeless and unfaithful life in to the hands of God trusting His faithfulness to be revealed through it all. If you ask me why? I can tell you that I cannot trust my own mind, strength and limited ability. Because I have sin nature that I myself cannot trust, I cannot promise anybody enough that I will not fail and that includes even to God. Do not say that I am arrogant to say such a thing, even though what I say may not be the truth, but it is a fact that I have expressed. To some degree I may be faithful, but never hundred percentage of time, lo and behold I sin to fail God everyday many many times in many of my thoughts as well as my actions, sometimes unknowingly and still at other times knowingly.

When I think about salvation in its entirety, the Lord gives everything in salvation to us but all we give him for it in exchange is our sinfulness's, weaknesses, failings, diseases, sicknesses, etc...We take everything, but give worthless things to him back. In taking our curses and our inabilities, Jesus gives us the blessing which He has earned through his sinless life lived for us on earth for the Glory of God. In other words, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior not only suffered for us to redeem us from sins and help us inherit salvation, but he suffers for our sins even after our salvation as He is the holy God who cannot see and bear evil when it happens in his sight.

Because even though Jesus the Christ was God and has always been, he chose to become a perfect human to live one among us. Now that he has been born with human weaknesses and limitations just like us but with without the sin nature, he could have compassion on us and come to aid us to live the Holy life that God demands and His nature supplies whom we believe. Know one thing great with God, he never tells his children to do what he does not do already before them in demonstration of his own nature. That is why in salvation, we have become sinner by our works no matter how much we try. Having no hope, when we surrendered our life to Him, but by His grace he infused a new nature of Himself so that we as His child could become partaker of His nature and Himself more and more through it. So the bottom line is, God takes a hopeless unholy sinner from the world, infuses him with a new nature of His to overcome the old unholy sin nature and declares him to be holy just as He is based on identification, and then again takes him and puts him in to the unholy world to make him live a holy life by co-operation of choice to overcome the world through faith moment by moment for the Glory of God. Hallelujah! In fact, after we get saved, the only thing we can do is co-operate with God by operating in the new nature through faith. But only the Lord who saved us can help us be established in our faith spiritually and can guard us from the evil one as we do not have enough strength to overcome him. BUT THE LORD IS FAITHFUL AND HE WILL DO IT!

LET US PRAY DEAR SAINTS: Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you and praise you for creating faith in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. You have promised that you will make the just people of God like me who are saved, empowered to live victoriously over sin and the evil one through the gift of faith. Help me believe your promises and give you all the Glory for whatever spiritual victory I attain day by day. Thank you for protecting me from the evil one by your own wisdom even when sin gives him the legal rights in my life to operate through it. Thank you for the Glorious blood of Jesus which has been my hiding place of refuge from the storms of life caused by sin and many more reasons of my own failures in many areas of life. Praise you for your faithfulness in my life. Help me trust your faithfulness and enjoy it through out my journey of life on earth. For your glory in Jesus mighty name. Amen!

Much Blessings,

Abraham Israel I

"God is faithful even when we are faithless, sin might separate us from God, but the blood of Jesus unites us with him the moment we confess our sins to Jesus Christ our High Priest. Because God cannot discard his disobedient child as He belongs to him in life and also in death, he chastises us and brings us back to Himself through His sovereign power over us which supplies us with the gift of repentance. Salvation is the process in which God establishes us and protects us from all curses of sin as we co-operate with Him for His Glory. God will not work without us, we cannot work anything pleasingly acceptable to Him without Him working already through us, with us and in us." — Abraham Israel

Today's Bible Verse To Ponder Over

tOdAy's bIbLe vErSe tO PoNdEr oVeR:

"For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death." (Rom 8:2).

Why is that when apple fell on the floor Newton was able to find the Law of gravity? As Newton sat in a contemplative mood on that occasion by the fall of an apple, ..the notion of gravitation came into his mind. He discovered this most important law of physics. Was the law in action even before he discovered it? Yes..., whether someone has found it out or not, the law of gravity was in action since the day God created the heaven and the earth. But denial of it or ignorance of it cannot make it become void. If any ignorant or uninformed throw themselves out in the air, they will fall to death.

In the same way the law of sin and death, has been in action since the fall of our forefather Adam and Eve. God has clearly revealed that man is lost in sin and therefore needs salvation in Christ Jesus. If we choose to believe and trust what God says through His revealed Holy Word the Bible, we will choose to apply the law of faith in our life to overcome the law of sin and death which denies us fellowship with God. Many religion in the world says, sin is bad behavior by categorizing certain actions of humans as sin and certain other external behavior as not. Only in Christianity the Bible reveals that sin is not just external bad actions, but most essentially it is the internal attitude of the heart of humans that has fallen short of the Glory of God, being lawless and also breaking God's law which has been revealed by Him through the Bible and also within the conscience of every human born on this earth.

We know that the Law of Gravity states that, anything that goes up must surely come down whilst the Law of Aerodynamics states that, it is possible that something can go up and remain there. In the same way, the law of sin and death assures that all humans are born in sin with a sin nature, to mean to say that they are not sinners just because they sin but rather because they are born sinners they continue to sin. God is holy and perfect and therefore cannot have fellowship with sinful and imperfect humans. God hates sin because it destroys and denies man to have fellowship with Him. But the law of faith in Christ Jesus has introduced a new method of unbroken fellowship with God that can be maintained overcoming the law of sin and death. This method is to walk spiritually by taking the help of the Holy Spirit within every believer, who states that it is possible to live in an unbroken and unhindered fellowship through confessing our sins day to day and be covered with the blood of Jesus which lifts us up in to a heavenly attitude of mind in spite of the law of sin and death working all around us. This law of the Spirit of life makes our heart to become as light as the heart of a bird in the air to make us fly spiritually and lifts us up to see ourselves and our situation through God's eye view which makes us live a purposeful life on earth for the Glory of God and also receive reward in the life to come for living it. Glory to God!

LET US PRAY DEAR SAINTS: Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you and praise you for creating faith in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Now I know that I can live with a abundant life of heaven that you provide on earth, so that I will be able to joyfully spend my life in fellowship with you now and for eternity ahead. Help me overcome sin constantly and love your ways in which you are leading me. I ask you in Jesus wonderful and holy name. Amen!

.....†.....( ).....†.....

"If sin pulls you down always, get on in to the airlines of the Spirit of God by faith and choose to rest in it being assured that the air price for you have been paid already by Jesus Christ, and so you can keep flying in the higher and higher altitude of heaven all the time as much as you want spiritually which will keep your heart and mind filled with thoughts and attitude of heaven. By receiving the Spirit of life will affect your behavior positively now and help you enjoy life abundantly on earth in unbroken fellowship and intimacy with God." — Abraham Israel

Apostolic Quotes

Å℘◎﹩☂øł☤ḉ ℚυ◎тℯṧ :

"Leaders choose to serve people as much as possible even when the receptors of blessings have less regard and thankfulness for it, because in serving to thankless people they find that it is not the receptor that makes them to be great but the reception of God's grace within them that makes them to be great in the sight of God and drives them to serve people." — Abraham Israel

"True greatness of humans are not found in ourselves, but rather when we find ourselves in God who loves to express through us in various ways and means for His own glory." — Abraham Israel

"The more we think that we can do all things as we like and want, the more we become empty of true greatness which lies within us. The less we think of ourselves and learn to think more on God and others to reflect what He is to us and likewise to others as a true Father of all spirits, the more we become great with our gifts and talents that God has invested in us to bring Him glory for all eternity. The more we think of God and His goodness towards us and like wise be good reflectively towards others, the less time we have to think of ourselves. The moment a person starts to think that he has achieved humility, in that very moment he becomes deceived to lose humility because of pride. When we stop working for ourselves, that is when God starts to work for us and show His true greatness through us. We become the best we are made to be, when we let ourselves go and let God. Today as you think of your greatness, make sure to think in terms of God's greatness in which God has hidden your true potential to prosper and succeed in life. Those who lift the cross of Jesus Christ in their daily life are hidden safe and secure from all harms of deception and emptiness in life that comes because of pride which God hates. God loves you too much to leave you by yourself without Him involved in everything small to big things in life. Find yourself in God and your will never have to search to find yourself anywhere else!" — Abraham Israel

"The authentic sign of the Creator and his unique choice to create each thing individually for His Glory shines forth to all the human minds except those whose minds are darkened due to lack of thankfulness for it all. Be thankful for all creation and you will never lose the thrill of living life to the full!" — Abraham Israel

"God is so big that heavens and earth cannot contain him, but He is so unique in revealing Himself to us humans that He can contain himself to nearly empty nothing to overflowing everything as we seek Him intensely in faith and perseverance. In other words, you can be saved but remain empty without further revelation of Jesus, or you may have seen the works of Jesus one quarter, yet remain empty the other three quarter of your heart and life. You can be half filled and yet remain empty the other half. Further you might have seen God work three quarter and yet remain one quarter empty. Or else you can be filled to the brim and overflowing with Jesus through the Holy Spirit and see Him in His fullness in every area of your life, as you walk hand in hand with Jesus Christ in intimacy and communion. You can choose to remain filled to the brim and overflowing or again lose back yourself to the partial filling through lack of fellowship and practice of the commandments of Jesus first in your own life, and then because of having failed to teach others all around you within your family, locality, state, nation and in all the world. God is so big, so high, so wide and so so deep that this lifetime is only a prelude to know Him a little fraction of who He is, but those who are called through salvation and love Him are given the opportunity of a eternity ahead to progressively see Him further and further work and dwell with Him in joy and peace as His dear Child in a life that is without end. When we stop working, God starts working. When we stop trying to make a god of our own imagination for ourselves by our religiosity, God starts to reveal to us who He is in reality from within our heart to various degrees with which we seek Him sacrificially through faith." — Abraham Israel

Today's Bible Verse To Ponder Over:

"In all your getting, get understanding." (Prov 4:7).

If I were to ask you which is the most important thing that you have right now in your life? Many will answer it is the life I have, some will say it is the property that I have, still some others will say that it is the family and relatives that I have, and further up some people will say that the most important thing in the whole world for me are the friends I have in my life, etc...Even though all these things are very important to us physically on earth for our physical, social and psychological well being which God has given as a blessing to us, none can ever be compared to the spiritual life that has come to us from Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior through whom we have inherited a fortune to live as the child of God for eternity ahead.

No person wants to think what about the life to come after we die, why? Because all want to live, nobody wants to die. But all humans die because the law of God demands that the human who sins should die and so we as sinful humans from our mothers womb have become helpless to be separated from this body of ours any moment of time. Fear of death have kept most humans in bondage to their own flesh which the devil operates to his whims and fancies to destroy themselves. For this reason because of God the Father Almighty's love towards us sinful humans, who is the creator of heaven and earth, He sent us Jesus Christ, his only sinless Son, our Lord to come to this earth through the virgin Mary. He suffered for our sins under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead to take them back again to heaven in their new resurrected body. On the third day he rose again for our justification. Justification is the act of God through which we become accepted to Him through our faith in the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ.

He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father as our high priest and intercedes on behalf of us so that we might continue to go to him in prayer and supplication for the cleansing of our conscience from sins which makes us live in God's mercies and grace forever and ever. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. For the righteous believer will be rewarded for eternity ahead to serve the Lord forever and ever. The unrighteous unbelieving will be given tender mercies from the Lord to repent and turn to the Savior Jesus who saves now all who come to God through Him and will judge the unsaved through their works which cannot save their souls if they continue to live without faith and die in unbelief. Now tell me what is the most important thing that you have received in this life? Is it not the understanding of salvation that the Son of God Jesus Christ has given us all through his very own life, death and resurrection, which has taken away our fear of death and have given us freely faith, hope and love to serve our living God for now and ever and ever in eternity that is ahead of us? O Lord Jesus Christ come! Amen!

PRAY WITH ME DEAR SAINTS: Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you and praise you for My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who died and set me free from sin and death. I Praise you for your love, mercies and grace that you have shown towards me for eternity ahead. My life is all about revealing your glory to all humans and finish the work you have given to me on earth. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy universal Church, the communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. I give you all the Glory for this understanding you have given me through Jesus Christ. Amen.

Much Blessings,

Abraham Israel I

"The greatest gift that God has given to us personally now on earth that will be remembered for all eternity is our understanding about Jesus Christ through whom we give praises and thanks through our body which is a holy living sacrifice through which we acceptably and pleasingly serve God constantly, and also are glorified by God as we serve Him faithfully." — Abraham Israel

"Be strong… for I am with you, says the LORD." (Hag.2:4).

It is one things to read the promises of God, but it is totally another thing to read, believe and stand on the promises of God. Many people can read God's promises, but it effectively works in the lives of only those people who have believed in the promises of God. In other words, through any crisis or endeavor or life happenings that come and go we can only be as strong as the promises of God we have believed.

The promises of God are exactly like a seed sown on the ground. We cannot sow one day and reap the harvest the next day itself. There is a time and a season of harvest that God has predetermined for every sower. For that reason, we have to rest and keep working on the seed first through pouring water day in and day out, once it peeps out visibly we have to keep it from pests. Then once it grows fully, at the appointed time it starts to bear fruit for the Glory of God. There may be some people who get disheartened on their way before the season of harvest and fail to tend the plant and thus miss the massive harvest that is waiting for them.

What do we learn from this, never we should get disheartened to give up, only then we will be able to enter the season of harvest with great joy. We might have sown with tears of labor and hard work in our spiritual lives, but if we fail to stand on the promises of God believing through the thick and thin of our lives, we will lose the joyful reward and favor of God that has been predetermined for us by God. When we fail, nearly every time it is because our faith has failed and God stands disappointed that we have given up so easily when He could have empowered us easily to stand in faith if we only have depended on God's grace which strengthens our lives.

PRAY WITH ME SAINTS: Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you and praise you for the like precious faith that you have given us through which we are positioned for great seasons of joyful harvest both in our temporal and eternal life. Help us not to get disheartened and give up our faith. Help me lean and depend on you, till I am strengthened by your power that comes by your grace. Thank you again for the destiny you have for me and my family for your Glory. In Jesus mighty name I pray, Amen!

Much Blessings,

"28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”" (Matt 11:27).

No person in heaven or earth have ever invited or promised the laborers of earth who are heavy laden to rest, because human life itself is full of labor because of the curse of sin which has come upon all the world because of the disobedience of our forefather Adam which happened through our foremother Eve. Then we from our childhood have inherited the nature of Adam within us which makes us live in sin like as a fish lives in water being surrounded by it in our daily living. Who can free us from this body of death as we are all already pitiable and wretched because of our inability to free ourselves from sin which leads to death?

The hope of all the nations have arisen on the horizon, his name is JESUS CHRIST and therefore we need not have to worry even for a second against our lowly state of inability to master over sin. If sin has been the cause of your downfall in life, it may be any kind of alcoholism, pornography, masturbation, lying, anger, smoking, drugs, adultery, fornication, etc...God has a great news for you. If you have accepted yourself as a sinner before God and is seeking for a Savior who could free you from all addictions and self-destructive habits, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved.

To be saved from sin in itself is a great free gift from God that frees us from condemnation of sin and make us justified before God. But God gives much more to you than this with the salvation package that He provides as you have become His dear children now. He now by your own choice to love God and hate sin gives you the power to rule over sin and also after your present life He chooses to reward you with eternal reward for living an overcoming life over sin and will free you from sin nature when you die physically on earth to leave for your heavenly home. Hallelujah!

PRAY WITH ME SAINTS: Dear Heavenly Father, I praise you and thank you for dear Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for the rest and refreshment you give through our Lord Jesus who not only saves us from sin, but gives us a choice to rule over sin and be free from the presence of sin to be rewarded for eternity for living a overcoming life over sin. With a grateful heart I will choose to live holy for the rest of my life on earth and be pleasing to you always through faith. In Jesus mighty name I pray. Amen!

Much Blessings...
