Manna for the Day

ℳαηηα ḟøґ тℌℯ Ðα¥ :

"Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies." (1 Cor.8:1).

The Word of God thunders saying, "In the last of the last days knowledge and travel shall increase in a humongous way." (Dan 12:4). We know that we are in the last of the last days because, we see right before our eyes the steep increase of the technological innovation and how travel has affected the whole globe and has made it to become a common thing for all people around the world. Today's cellphone becomes old model in a matter of days and weeks. The latest vehicle lasts for a couple of weeks and a month, before which a entirely new innovation takes it to the back seat. Through the internet the common man knows and have knowledge today more than what highly educated people of great intellectual capacity used to know and have. School children know more than their teachers in general knowledge and they have the technical know how to handle the latest electronic gadgets. Amazing!

But on the other side, today's generation have come to the state where they do not want to submit to their parents and choose to challenge their authority over them. The same happens in political and religious circle. This also happens in the legal circle too. God never blesses rebellion and all the leaders whether it is political, legal or religious, are appointed by God. Only when a person stands against the Word of God, we have the authority from God not to submit to their ways as we see in the Book of Daniel and in the Acts of the Apostles.

In our generation, the 'I know it all and you do not have to tell me what to do', is a dangerous rebellious trend that have the evil power to make our head puff up with full of pride. A human who thinks that he knows it all, will grow no further in wisdom but to go forward in foolishness and have a great fall like humpty dumpty. The antidote to pride is to humble movement by movement our need for God's grace and mercies before Him, and fall to his feet to receive His love and give it to others in the same way we receive from Him. Love edifies our mind, because love is not just a feeling that comes and goes, but rather it is the person of God who is Love. Love has been show to us in Christ Jesus who has become the embodiment of it and a visible one and only God to all of us humans. The more we want to see God, the more we want to walk with Jesus and suffer with Him.


Dear Heavenly Father,

I thank you and praise you for all the grace and mercies you have shown me and my family thus far in my life. Thank you for pouring out your love day in and day out within my spirit and speaking to me face to face through your Word and your Spirit. Help me hear your voice and walk in your love, so that I may show the same love and mercy you have shown me to others around me whom you bring in to contact with by your divine will and wisdom. Help me to stay humble and walk with you till the end of my life on earth, so that I can be greatly rewarded and honored for it through the rest of my eternity with you. In Jesus wonderful name I pray! Amen.

Much Blessings....

Apostle Abraham Israel

Today's Bible Verse To Ponder Over

✞◎∂αƴ❝ṧ ฿їßℓε Ṽℯґṧℯ ✞ℴ ℙøηḓℯґ ϴṽ℮я :

"And now abide faith, hope, love, these three." (1 Cor.13:13).

The greatest virtues that God gives from heaven as a Jewel upon us to make us exhibit His character are so many that we cannot count it with our finite mind. Every good Character that we experience can only come from the God who is the only good person in the entire Universe. In others words, whatever goodness we have, we are and we become can only come from the standard set by God who defines what goodness is to us humans. Sometimes we acknowledge it, at other times we take it for granted as though it is by our own effort we have developed it.

Sometimes the greatest weakness we might have in life is to not acknowledge the source we receive our goodness, (i.e.) to acknowledge that God is the one who gives all virtues of His to us and beautifies us. Life is a test where we have the choice to acknowledge the Teacher to give back the credit and honor that He rightly deserves, or we can take it upon ourselves and fill our mind with pride enough to lead us to fall soon from the grace that we have experienced freely from God. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.

We access all grace through faith in the present, but when we are in the process of the anvil, where we are extremely heated by fiery trials and suddenly thrown in to watery flood of temptations by God's loving providence, the future has nothing but only hope against hope to see the goodness of God in the land of the living. But through it all when we come to the end of it all bringing to Him nothing but our broken life to God, there He will quieten us with His love equal to the past suffering that our soul and spirit has experienced through our walk with God. Then the end of faith, hope and love is the face to face encounter we experience with God in His Love which is wider than the ocean, deeper than the deepest sea and higher than the tallest mountain we have on earth as it will qualify us for a heavenly reward for eternity ahead! Love is the greatest of all because God is Love. The very personality of God starts with Love and ends in His Love. So as we love God, let us with that same Love we receive from Him, share it with others to bring heaven on earth for the Glory of God!

"Life can start with our effort and continue in hope, but it can only end with God's grace as we acquire His wisdom to receive the gift of salvation through faith to make it to heaven which helps us to infinitely experience His Love for eternity ahead! All is well that ends well, especially God's Love towards us which is the chief end of all human life, to find it and to continue in it is the greatest virtue of all!" — Abraham Israel

#64 — Art of Living

How I Started Writing In A Revelatory Dimension!

#64 Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ :

I was born as a preacher’s kid in a evangelical Church in India. My Father is a pioneer who trusted God and came to a mission station to establish a evangelical church and reach out to all the souls that God wanted to be saved and build them up in the way of the Lord.

Since my childhood I have learned what it means to be in want and still be content through it all, and also what it means to live in the abundance of heaven when God would open his hand of blessings abundantly season after season to satisfy me and yet because of lack of thankfulness live in want.

One thing I have always desired is to live a life pleasing to God, so naturally I grew up learning the laws of God and was taught by my Sunday school teachers to keep it all and therefore live pleasing to God. So I would go to Bible camps, will repent and become joyful and peaceful to get rid of my old sins, then would come back to normal life full of zeal for the Lord and keep the law of the Lord in order to be pleasing to Him.

But lo and behold I would live with this new found zeal for some days and even for a month or more, but would return to the old lifestyle which would again pull me down to where I was and even lower. Bible camp after Bible camp, revival meetings after revival meetings would pass and this became a habit that recurred again and again that I finally as a young boy with all the fleshly desires of lust increasing in me, had come to decide that it is useless to try to live a Christian life pleasing to God.

Little did I know that it is not just hard to live by the law and please God, but rather it is impossible to live a Christian life without depending on the help of the Holy Spirit who has been sent as a helper to usher to us His infinite grace through which only we can expect help from God to live a life fully pleasing to Him.

One of the reason I was very skeptical about the gift of the Holy Spirit since my childhood is because of the lack of knowledge and abuse of this gift in Christian Pentecostal and Charismatic circles which made evangelical denominations like ours to come to the conclusion that anything supernatural that we cannot understand with our finite mind should be rejected as it does have the potential to deceive us through demonic counterfeits.

So the deeper way to live spiritual life for me from my childhood is to repent to God and get promises regarding salvation from the Bible, and after that straightaway live a life fully pleasing to God in surrender without entertaining conscious sins.

I became such a hypocrite as I moved in to my teen years that I would consider lustful things I like to be something that God would overlook as I was keeping all others laws of His everyday. The holier-than-thou attitude became the lifeline to soulish death and self-justification. As I grew up, sinning became a habit and sin-repent-sin became a cycle as usual.

All the joy, peace and righteousness which are the eco-system of heaven to experience on earth became more polluted through sin and less appealing to me day by day and year after year as I became more miserable in life. One side I loved the world and the other side I loved God, a divided heart began to increase in me.

During this time, I became more and more involved in fleshy lust like pornography and masturbation which began to control me and sucked out the heavenly life that God had previously given which I had taken for granted.

During this time I finished my tenth standard and pursued my Diploma in Electrical Engineering for three years. Then by the grace of God He gave me a chance through His favor for me to join in the Bachelor of Engineering degree course in the same Electrical and Electronics engineering course. As I moved on in the same spiritual cycle of keeping the law to please God, God moved me in to a Father-Son realm of chastisement through His love where He wanted to make me a useful vessel for His Glory.

I used to be physically very very strong as I would regularly exercise in the gymnasium for an hour or two each day right from the age of fifteen. So toward the end of the final year of my Engineering, suddenly without any know reason I became so weak in my body that my hands would tremble so much that I would try to anxiously cover it up before others as though nothing unusual was happening, yet I would try to reason myself to believe that I do not have anything bad or serious health issues as I was still exercising regularly.

I lost nearly 15 kilograms in more than a couple of months time which took me from nearly 90 to 75 kilogram body weight. As I was a six footer, people would ask me how I have lost so much weight in a short period of time and I would tell them that exercise and right diet would help achieve weight loss easily. But little did I reveal how weak I had become that my hands were trembling and that I had been psychologically affected within.

Through it all I failed in one of the easiest subject where I scored 35 out of 40 for a pass mark, and immediately I applied for revaluation. After that when I met my tuition master and he felt pity enough to tell me that if I could give him 5000 bucks, he would try to trace my paper to make me clear the paper to get the degree with first class. And I tried bribing through this very good influential math teacher who tried his best to trace my paper, as he was part of the the correction team of our University. But he failed to reach my paper as he was not able to trace it, as I now believe God had kept it out of reach so that I would fully come to place of surrender to his will in my life and would not try illegal way to achieve in life.

So with my weakness I studied the same Numerical Methods paper and in the next six months passed it with a above average marks to get my second class degree in Engineering. Next immediately I pursued a training in software Engineering field which was booming before the 911 tower crash. I nearly was about to be placed in a good firm before which the 911 towers of New York crashed and the whole world came to a stand still in the New Millennium. The whole industry took a downside after that and my health condition too was extremely bad that I had to tell my CEO that I am not able to continue with the work. He was not willing to let me go, but I had to leave them promising them that I will return back once I will regain my health back.

Little did I know what was in store for me back home in Erode which was nearly 400 kilometers from Chennai which is the capital of Tamil Nadu my home state. There was immediately in that same week a revival meeting arranged in our Church. In that meeting by God’s providence I met a apostle of God whom God used mightily, I said to him how empty I feel within and how weak I felt in my body. I also told him how I have a burden to reach out to souls. He told me personally to kneel down and prayed over me saying, ‘Lord if possible, use him more than me.’

Nearly those three wonderful days of revival meeting got over and thousands of people were touched by the good tidings of great joy through the power of God and the Word of God which the Man of God brought to town. But over night as I was weary I slept, and in the morning when I tried getting up I was not able to get up even to go to rest room. I felt so depressed in my life, because just when all the young people of my age were getting in to good high paying work, here I was entering in to a dark phase of my life where the future seemed hopeless.

But as I looked upon the wall, there the Word of God from the calendar suddenly was quickened by God within my heart while I saw it. In it were written, “Trust in the Lord at all times.” (Psalm 62:8). This was the first time I felt God speak in my spirit so clearly. Then as I asked why should such a shameful thing should happen to me, God told me within my spirit clearly, “Whatever shame you go through is not greater than the shame I went through for you on the Cross!” This really got me thinking deeply and comforted my heart greatly as I received God’s grace to face the greatest hardship of my life till that time of my life which I faced that day.

I was taken by an Ambulance to the Hospital, and there doctors diagnosed that I had Hyper Thyroid three times more than the normal limit which caused potassium deficiency in my body and it made the muscles of my body to become hardened to cramp me down to become immobilized temporally. Doctors prescribed regular medicine and rest for me after nearly three or four days of treatment. I thanked God to return back home, but due to high fatigue and weakness, I could only eat a little bit and sleep after that, and again I was taking medicine and doing the same for weeks together hopelessly.

During this time, I would take the Bible to read it for sometime and I would have joy and peace. Then I would sleep thinking about those verses I have read. This happened over a period of time. In other words, the word of God became my spiritual medicine for my soul while I was also taking medicine for the healing of my body.

One of those days, as my parents were praying as usual on a Wednesday afternoon in a nearby room, which they have always done since my childhood, I was half asleep due to weakness. But then to my amazement, suddenly the Presence of God filled the place and I felt a reverential fear within after which I heard behind me a voice that was like a noise of many waters, He then told me saying, “You do my work, I will bless you, your family and all those who come in to contact with you…”

Thus from that day onwards my journey of faith started as I began to fight the fight of faith to fulfill God’s destiny and purpose for my life and the world around me. I also used to watch regularly the programs of dear Pastor Benny Hinn called ‘This is your day,’ it was on this particular day I was challenged by a elderly man of God in a talk show with Benny. He told me that whoever he would pray for would get filled with the Holy Spirit with the external evidence of speaking in tongues. But then one woman was not able to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit even after he prayed, but then she told him that many men of God have prayed for her before just like him, but in spite she was never filled with the Holy Spirit. Sensing the spirit of religious pride working within her, then this man of God it seems have rebuked that woman and told that her pride and tradition has not allowed her to get filled with the Spirit of God. So she went to kneel immediately before God and humbled herself of her pride. Soon after that she was gloriously filled with the Spirit of God and began to speak in tongues. 

As I was desperate for more of God to again walk with Him in power, that evening I went to the terrace alone and started to pray with faith for God to fill me with His Spirit. Then as told by the man of God in that talk show, the first time I felt a single syllable word come to my mind, I began to speak out in faith. Then more and more words of the Spirit in tongues started to flow through me and a joy that is unspeakable and peace that passed my understanding filled me to the brim and began to overflow through me.

Thus I began to understand the ART OF LIVING with God and for God is only through faith and faith alone in what Christ has done for me personally which can only please God immensely. If ever we want to achieve anything in our spiritual lives, it is not by our might or power, but by His Spirit alone who has been given to us personally to help us pray in the will of God so that we will be empowered to fulfill God's will for our lives. And the power to fulfill the purpose of God for our lives is not within us but with God who gives us the Holy Spirit to walk in His will and way. All we need to do is to surrender our lives through His Spirit and let God live His life through us day after day for His Glory!

Today's Bible Verse To Ponder Over

✞◎∂αƴ❝ṧ ฿їßℓε Ṽℯґṧℯ ✞ℴ ℙøηḓℯґ ϴṽ℮я :

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. (Matt.5:8).

God is visible to the heart of every human born in this earth. But as he grows in life, darkness starts to creep in to his heart through wrong beliefs set by culture, tradition, Satan and demons, friends and well wishers, bad and evil companions, etc...that they start to see darkness rather than light. When the heart of humans start to regard and enjoy darkness by practicing it, they start to hate light and love to continue in the darkness of this world, self and Satan.

Only those who go to God day in and day our crying out for His mercies and grace will receive further light through confessing their sins and getting cleansed by the blood of Jesus which was shed for each one of us. So it is not God's problem in lack of revelation to the human heart, but rather the condition of the humans heart that decides whether a person is able to see God in his life or don't care as a apatheist or agonist. Apatheism is the attitude of apathy towards the existence or non-existence of God. Agnosticism is the view that the existence of God, of the divine or the supernatural is unknown or unknowable.

What is our belief towards God today? Have we become so skeptical and cynical, that we blame God for all our troubles and sorrows? If God is such a bad God and a evil tyrant why should he sacrifice his only begotten Son Jesus the Christ to save us from sin? Have we forgotten the love of God that he has for us, by hearing too much of socialist theory and have leaned on the left too much or have become too much a capitalist to have leaned on the right enough to hate others around us who are different? May we turn to the grace and mercies of God and fall at his feet humbling our heart before Him. We know too little and have too little light in us, that we start to stand in darkness and be prideful about our ignorance. May we stand in truth of the Bible through faith to see God daily in our each and every activities we do and glorify Him all the days of our life. May God reward us for our faithfulness that comes through humility!

Much Blessings....


Apostle Abraham Israel


"Happy, joyful, peaceful and blessed enough to be envied by others when anyone keep their heart cleansed always through faith, because they are the chosen ones who will be able to see God's activities constantly happening day in and day out in and through their lives." (Matt 5:8, Abi's Translation).

Apostolic Quotes

"To be born once and to die once is natural for every human, but to be born twice and live forever is the supernatural grace and mercies of the Lord Jesus Christ given to those children of God who are chosen by Him even while they choose Him over self and the world of temporal and pleasurable pursuits which are deceitful traps of the evil one to keep us away from God and the Love of God which He has for us." — Abraham Israel

"True contentment is not to want what we do not have and also be thankful and satisfied enough to want not more than what we do have. Any spirituality that does not include education of learning contentment along with all other virtues, is not a true spirituality to be commended at all. " — Abraham Israel

"In Christ Jesus we are already accepted by God as his children and we need not work ourselves to get more accepted than what we already are. Now that we are the children of God, we should learn to live like what we already are within our spirit-man. We are to God the sweet aroma of Christ, may our lives glorify our Father in Heaven who has called us to Himself by His grace and mercy." — Abraham Israel

"The enemy cannot continue to rejoice over your misery, because the Lord rejoices over you already to do you good at the end of it all. Never ever give up, just hold on to God in faith for the Glory of God, and all will be well for you and your family in the future. You may be in the midst of a fiery storm, but your future is safe and secure because of the hand of God that is working along with you to make you prosperous even as you learn to rejoice in the Lord patiently through the storms of life by faith. Your future is as big as the promises of God you believe! Only believe and all things God has promised are possible!" — Abraham Israel

"The Cross is a symbol of shame, every one who carry their own cross to follow Jesus will walk through the same path. But the light of God that will be revealed through their lives when they are in fellowship with Jesus will become a eternal deposit of the Glory of God for eternity ahead within them! People can deny the respect you deserve, but they cannot deny you the reward and honor that suffering in life brings before God for now and for eternity!" — Abraham Israel
