As much as we can taste a natural food and say whether it is tasty or not, our spirit man has the ability to taste a spiritual food that is supplied to it. By the way, because Jesus supplies himself as the spiritual bread of life by which our spiritual life gets sustained by its intake, we have the ability to tell whether he really tastes good after experiencing His eternal and abundant life which he supplies. Once we taste and experience the sweetness of our Lord Jesus, it is hard for us to leave it for anything that the world deceitfully and temporally gives in exchange for it. May the Lord Jesus create in us a craving for Himself to satisfy our spiritual taste buds and to please God through faith in Him.

Martyn Lloyd - Jones"Another real problem created by the doctrine of the divine sovereignty has to do with the will of man. If God rules His universe by His sovereign decrees, how is it possible for man to exercise free choice? And if he can not exercise freedom of choice, how can he be held responsible for his conduct? Is he not a mere puppet whose actions are determined by a behind-the-scenes God who pulls the strings as it pleases Him?""The attempt to answer these questions [those three questions raised in the passage above] has divided the Christian church neatly into two camps which have borne the names of two distinguished theologians, Jacobus Arminius and John Calvin. Most Christians are content to get into one camp or the other and deny either sovereignty to God or free will to man. It appears possible, however, to reconcile these two positions without doing violence to either, although the effort that follows may prove deficient to partisans of one camp or the other."God sovereignly decreed that man should be free to exercise moral choice, and man from the beginning has fulfilled that decree by making his choice between good and evil. When he chooses to do evil, he does not thereby countervail the sovereign will of God but fulfills it, inasmuch as the eternal decree decided not which choice the man should make but that he should be free to make it. If in His absolute freedom God has willed to give man limited freedom, who is there to stay His hand or say, "What doest thou?" Man's will is free because God is sovereign. A God less than sovereign could not bestow moral freedom upon His creatures. He would be afraid to do so." — A.W.

(Luke 5:31-32, NKJV).Only when we come to realize that we are hopeless sinners heading towards hell fire and are in desperate need of the Savior, can Jesus really come in to our heart to save us from sin and help our sin-sick soul to be healed by the Presence of God. Those who feel that they are righteous by their own religiosity and self-righteousness are some of the worst sinners who are very hard to be saved because of this wrong demonic religious attitude in them. Sinners can easily repent because they realize that they are heading towards hell for their sins, the righteous sees no need of it because they delusively believe that they are heading towards heaven.Jesus is the only soul physician who can cure the disease of sin, there is no other person to do the job in the whole universe. God made Christ to be sin for us, and then from the moment we accept Christ, he became our righteousness. Christ's righteousness is put in to our heavenly spiritual account and then His righteousness is transmitted to our heart for us to walk in it. Our imputed righteousness never changes but our imparted righteousness needs refilling again and again. Imparted righteousness will work itself out of us to reveal the nature of Christ through our actions. We are saved by the imputed righteousness which never changes for eternity (Rom 4:6), but we are rewarded according to the measure of imparted righteousness with which we walk in this world (Phil 3:8-10). If you even have any ounce of self righteous spirit in you, humble yourself before the Lord now so that He might give you great grace and righteousness to walk as Christ walked on earth and glorify God in the future.Say this heartfelt prayer to the Lord Jesus, "My own righteousness are like filthy rags before you O God and is of no real spiritual and eternal value. You are my righteousness and I stand as righteous person now because you have taken my sin and as a result God has imputed your perfect righteousness to my spiritual account in heaven and have declared me to be righteous.

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #49 : "26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you...29 I will deliver you from all your uncleannesses." (Ezek 36:26, 29).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : We know from the life of David the man of God that when he fell in to adultery and murder, to cover it up he stayed silent away from the presence of God in condemnation for many many months, till finally God through His prophet Nathan convicted David of his sin (2 Samuel 12:1-5). The moment he got convicted, he confessed to Nathan the Phophet, "I have sinned against the Lord." Here we see that David the man after God's own heart was able to live without confessing his sin for so many months together before a prophet arrives to convict David of his sin. God had to reach out through a prophet because the personal ministry of the Holy Spirit came only in the New Testament (John 16:7-15). O what a privilege to have the Holy Spirit as the convictor, guide, comforter, helper and stand-by, all in one person of the Holy Spirit to reach out to us and disciple us just like Jesus personally discipled his followers two thousand years ago.
When David sinned, he felt so miserable until the day he confessed his sin which he commited in secret to God and His prophet. Then with a broken heart he cried out to God saying, "10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. 11 Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me." (Psa 51:10-11). In other words when conviction came to his heart so strongly, he immediately thought about his predecessor Saul from whom God took His anointing back and gave it to David when he was young (2 Sam 16:13-14). David knew that without the anointing of the Holy Spirit, he too will have a sad demise like Saul. David knew the importance of the Holy Spirit in such a way, his first cry to God was not to take the Holy Spirit away from him for his mistake. When we value the things of God and want a clean heart, God gets very pleased with us. God heard the poor David's cry to him and did not take the Holy Spirit from Him. But this was in Old Testament period when the Holy Spirit was not permanently given because they were not born again. But now in the New Testament, God has once and for all time has thrown all our past, present and future sins behind His back forever because of what Jesus has done for us on the Cross (Heb 10:12, 17; Eph 4:32; Psa 103:12; Isa 38:17). So we need not cry to God now like David saying, "Create in me a clean heart O God" because God has already given us all "a new heart and put a new spirit within" us with a promise that God Himself will deliver us progressively from all our uncleannesses. And neither do we have to fear like David and say to God, "Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me." For God himself has promised us all, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." (Heb 13:5). O what a privilege we have in the New Testament of Jesus. Praise God!
The one responsibility that God has given to all the New Covenant saints is to confess their sins as soon as possible and be cleansed from their present sin inorder to continue in the conscious fellowship with God through His Presence (1 John 1;7, 9). If we fail to confess our sins when the Holy Spirit convicts us and then live in the lack of the consciousness of the Presence of God, then we will become miserable as David was in his life until he chose to confess his sins to God and His prophet. I myself have felt greatly miserable in my past life, until I started to understand the great privilege of the New Covenant (1 John 2:1-2). Once we confess our sins to God, God not only forgives our sins but cleases us from all unrighteousness. Then with a cleansed conscience without a single spot of our old sin, we can joyfully serve the living God as though we have never done that sin in our past life (Heb 9:14). Many believers who neglect to develop this simple habit of confessing to the Lord when they sin, get in to great condemnation of the devils to finally cause ship wreck of their faith that God had given them (1 Tim 1:19). WE SHOULD BE WISE TO NOT ONLY UNDERSTAND THE GREATNESS OF THE NEW COVENANT OF JESUS, BUT ALSO APPLY IT ALL IN OUR DAY TO DAY LIFE TO BE BLESSED ABUNDANTLY AND BE A BLESSING TO MANY OTHERS. The faster we confess our sins to God, the better it is for us to walk in the consciousness of God's Presence and fellowship without any hindrance and condemnation from the enemy of our soul. Praise the Lord!

Healing and Health is Our Inheritance
Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #48 : "For I am the LORD who heals you." (Exodus 15:26).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : Our God is a healing God. His very nature is to heal and keep His children in good health. Think about it saints, If God has promised to be the healer to the people who were part of the Old Covenant which was faulty, how much more God will heal all of us who have become His children's through His perfect New Covenant made through Jesus Christ our Lord (Heb 8:7)! The new covenant is called as "better covenant" with "beter promises" (Heb 8:6). If we ask the question, in what way it is better? It is better in every way compared to the Old Covenant made through Moses. The law instructed people like a school master, but it never gave the power to overcome sin, sickness and death. But the new covenant is a perfect one because not only Jesus speaks and commands to us through the Holy Spirit, but also he gives us the power to keep the commandments through the Holy Spirit.
The healing we can expect in the New Covenant is not just physical but it is better given as a holistic package of salvation and healing in all areas of our lives. In other words, God will for us in the new covenant is that we should spiritually prosper and as a result of it our soul, body, financial and social arenas of our lives should prosper. Apostle John agrees with this statement and says, "Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers." (3 John 1:2). But believers have been living in unbelief thinking that God can only do spiritual things and may not do the same in other areas of our lives. This is a deception of Satan that has made the curses of heathens to come and reign in the lives of many believers. God will not be pleased to bless anybody anyother way other than His ordained way of living by faith.
So how should we respond? We should believe that God not only makes us spiritually prosperous which is the highest level of all blessings, but he is equally interested to bless us in all other areas of our lives. When God blessed Abraham he became wealthy and not only that, he became prosperous in all other areas of his life of which the top most thing He got is the spiritual blessing of God's promise to bless the nations through him in the future (Gen 24:35; 12:3). The New Covenant promises makes all the Old Covenant promises to be "Yes and Amen" and along with it, there is the highest spiritual blessing of God that God has already given to us through our Lord Jesus Christ to overcome sin and death in our lives (2 Cor 1:20; Eph 1:3). Hence God has promised to heal us and also keep us in health to do His will until the end of our lives (Psa 91:16, 118:17). God has promised to bless our food that we eat. I have been through spiritual wilderness alone in my life with nobody but God at my side. You know when I ate some simple food that God gave me all those times with thankfulness, God would stimulate my taste buds and amazingly those simple food would taste so great! The same God blessed those simple food in such a way to keep me healthy and strong which I was not able to keep myself eating great nutritional food in the other days of my past. I do not suggest you to take food without nutrition but am only emphasising the greatness of God's blessing upon the food we eat and water we drink. Always take balanced diet and avoid junk foods like coco-cola, pepsi and all kinds of artificial pizzas and Mcfoods. Choose always fresh fruit, vegetables, grains and some meat with it. But above all, HAVE FAITH IN THE BLESSING OF GOD TO BLESS YOUR FOOD AND WATER WHEN YOU ARE IN THE WILL OF GOD. I challenge you that not only you will be healed but also you will be in health to serve the Lord strongly till the end of your life.

The God of Covenant
Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #47 : "My covenant I will not break, nor alter the word that has gone out of My lips." (Psalms 89:34).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : Our God is a God of covenant. Covenant means "a written agreement or promise . . . between two or more parties, especially for the performance of some action". God always agrees and promises to perform all things through His written word and then without fail fulfills it for His people who trust in it. We see that God is not like man to say one thing and then when the times comes, give five reasons for not doing what has been promised. Many goverments, corporate companies, big entrepreneurs fail to keep their word, teachers fail to keep their word to their pupils and the same happens in families too when parents who promised their children something were not able to keep it properly. Hear what God Himself says, "For I am the LORD, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob." (Mal 3:6). In other words it is like God saying, you who again and again transgress, deceive and sin because of your sinful inclination and nature which I hate, I have forgiven you consistently, loved you unconditionally, continued to keep you safe, blessed you and have not changed in my good disposition towards you who is inside my covenant. This is the privilege of the people of God who are in the convenant.
In the Old Testament God gave the law through Moses the man of God and commanded His people to do all the commandments without fail. Then he promised conditionally that if they keep all the commandments whole heartedly, he will bless them financially, physically, socially. He also promised them that He will keep the whole nation of Israel prosperous above all the nations of the earth. But at the same time God has clearly revealed to them that if they do not do all His commandments whole heartedly, He will cause all the curses to come upon in such a way that the whole world will speak about it in their day to day conversation as a proverb (Deut 28). It was a heavey burden that these Israelites carried right through out their lives to keep the law without fail. The original intention that God gave the Israelites the law was to make them realise that they cannot keep it on their own strength and also to remind them of their sinfulness because of the evil nature that dwells in them. This law did not really liberate the Israelites spiritually, instead it bound them to itself and made them self-righteous if they failed to seek the need of the Messiah to come and free them from it (Gal 3:19). This law was appointed till Jesus Christ could come and give all His people grace and take them to heaven. So Old Testament is all about "Blessing on obedience and curses on disobedience." The law was their task master which said, "Do, do, do , do until you die." There was no much chance for a person to do the law out of love. Even in such times as the Old Testament, God stood faithful to His covenant and this is the only reason the nation of Israel survived until Jesus appreared on earth.
Praise God for the New Testament. Jesus the hero of the New Covenant stood inbetween God and Man as a Mediator and then gave Himself as the perfect substitute for every man who will believe and come in to the New Agreement with God through Himself. In this covenant, Jesus as a sinless perfect sacrifice appeased God and unconditionally invited people in to the covenant. While the people being sinners, they were adopted in to God's family through Him and then were spiritually blessed in every way to live a blessed life on earth. Then unlike the Old Testament, Jesus said, "If you love Me, keep My commandments." (John 14:15). So the message of the New Testament is, "Done. Just believe and live a blessed life for the glory of God!" We keep Jesus' commandments because He has loved us unconditionally and therefore we serve Him not for any temporary reward but out of gratitude for what He has already done for us. Love is the motivation to keep the commandments of Jesus. Then the New Testament reveals that if a believer in Jesus refuses to keep his commandments, God will chastise that person as a father chastens his son. But he will never bring a curse or destruction for their sins because Jesus has already perfectly paid the price to free them from the penalty of sin (Heb 12:7). Also God has promised that He will never leave nor forsake a believer based on their sinful or evil behaviour and therefore has covenanted unconditionally to keep them safe until they enter heaven to be with Him forever (Heb 13:5-6; John 14:3). O what a privilege! MANY ARE TEMPTED TO LIVE IN THE OLD COVENANT STANDARD OF LAW WHEN JESUS HAS INVITED THEM TO A HEAVENLY BLESSED NEW TESTAMENT STANDARD OF LOVE. BUT THOSE WHO KEEP THE LAW ARE STILL CURSED (Gal 3:10), BUT THOSE WHO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF JESUS OUT OF LOVE ARE GIVEN GRACE TO RULE AND REIGN IN THIS EARTH AND FOREVERMORE. What will you choose saints? As for me I have chosen to believe all the promises of God as yes and Amen in Christ Jesus (2 Cor 1:20), therefore have been extremely blessed! I keep the commandments of Jesus through His strength and when I fail He lifts me up and encourages me to go for the perfection again and again. Choose Grace and Reign!

I would not dissuade them from the practice, but I would rather lay my soul asoak in half a dozen verses all day than rinse my hand in several chapters. Oh, to be bathed in a text of Scripture, and to let it be sucked up in your very soul, till it saturates your heart!" — Charles Haddon Spurgeon"You may as well quit reading and hearing the Word of God, and give it to the devil, if you do not desire to live according to it." — Martin Luther

ℳαηηα ḟøґ тℌℯ Ðα¥ : "But as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, even so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who tests our hearts." (1 Thessalonians 2:4, NKJV).If we are a man-pleaser, we will never become a God-pleaser because both are a trillion miles away from each other. God will test the hearts of each one of us and will entrust the gospel to be proclaimed by only those who just want to live their lives pleasing to Him. The rest of the men-pleasers will not be able to collect eternal treasures of great value in their heavenly account. So choose now saints, what do you want to be? As for me and my household we will serve the Lord with our whole heart! Amen!♏ü¢н ℬʟℯ﹩﹩їᾔ❡﹩......

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #46 : "I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!" (Luke 12:49).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : There are two specific places where the writers of the Gospel specifically mentioned the word fire with the Baptism of the Spirit. Apostle Matthew wrote about John the Baptist as saying, "I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire." (Matt 3:11) and also Luke the first theologian and historian of the Church wrote in Luke 3:16 the same about John the Baptist as saying, "...I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire." Here in both the above verses the writers point to the fact that the Baptism with the fire will always succeed the Baptism with the Spirit. When we look to the day of fullfillment on the day of Pentecost, we see that the moment the disciples received the Baptism with the Spirit, they also received the Baptism with fire which appeared to them as "divided tongues, as of fire", as a result of it the One Spirit of God who came upon them all sat upon each of them individually. After this, they were filled with the Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave utterance (Acts 2:1-4).
What can we learn from this? The Baptism of fire accompanies the Baptism of the Spirit always. The infilling of the Spirit will be accompanied with the Spirit giving utterance to the people who are ready to speak with the other tongues. Many are not seeing the external manifestation of speaking in tongues because of unbelief, tradition of the Church in which they have been brought up, fear that some other evil spirit might give utternace, etc.... First of all it is God's will for all the believer's around the earth to receive the fire of tongues which Jesus had planned for every New Testament believer. This is why Jesus said, "I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!" (Luke 12:49). Jesus was the first person to receive and operate in this awesome anointing of fire when He came to the earth (Luke 3:21-22; 11:1). The same fire began to descend upon all believers only from the day of Pentecost. Jesus wished that the fire of pentecost were already kindled during the time He visited the earth because he knew the power of the tongues of fire in His own life experience when He received it at the time He was water baptized by John the Baptist (Luke 12:50).
Many people around the world should genuinely seek the Baptism of the Spirit and Fire (Luke 11:13). As a result of it when they start to speak in tongues as a sign of receiving it from the Holy Spirit, it is good but this wonderful package doesn't stop there (Acts 10:46-47). God wants us to carry and kindle this tongues of fire daily by praying in it for atleast one hour (Matt 26:40). By praying like this in tongues the pure will of God for our lives will be prayed towards God for fulfillment by faith. When the will of God begins to get fulfilled, there will always be a division that will be caused on earth, even among family members who are the closest to us in flesh because of our faith (Luke 12:51-53). Do not be discouraged when such things happen to you, immediately do not stop praying in tongues being fearful of your circumstances that are turning out to be against you. You are becoming closer to the heart and will of God, Jesus has already overcome the world so take heart to carry the tongue of fire boldly and kindle it more and more (John 16:33). As you keep doing, who knows your family members who oppose your spirituality now might get drawn toward the Lord Jesus themselves to receive the same tongues of fire in their lives in the future. All these good blessings of the Lord which will come upon your family is dependent now on your prayer of fire that you kindle through tongues. THROUGH YOUR TIME OF DISTRESS TO FULFILL THE WILL OF GOD, THE GLADNESS THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE THROUGH PRAYING IN TONGUES OF FIRE, WILL CARRY YOU DAY AFTER DAY TILL YOU FULFILL THE WILL OF GOD PERFECTLY AND COMPLETELY BY THE GRACE OF GOD AT THE END OF YOUR LIFE (Isa 28:11-12). Will you wisely choose to invest your time by sending the fire of the Holy Spirit in all the earth through your disciplined and faith-filled prayer of tongues (Luke 12:50). When you are regularly praying in tongues, you are kindling a fire that will set the whole earth on fire. This is the way God transforms His servants like us as a flame of fire (Psa 104:4). I have done it for many years and I have no regret but only joy that increases day by day in my life.

Å℘◎﹩☂øł☤ḉ ℚυ◎тℯṧ : "Tongues are the official supernatural language of the born-again spirit-man, exactly like our mother tongues is to our soul." — Abraham Israel
"If tongues are not that important as many Christians say these days, Jesus and all the apostles would not have spoken so much about it and also atleast some of them should not have spoken in this supernatural utterance in their lives personally. But the Bible says that they were all filled with the Spirit and began to speak in tongues." — Abraham Israel
Ḡґℯαт ℚυø⊥εṧ : "Beloved, settle it. It is one of the divine mediums and methods of communication between your spirit and God's. And as long as you live, when you talk about TONGUES, speak with reverence, for it is God. When you talk about healing, speak with reverence, for it is God. When you talk about prophecy, remember it is God." — John G. Lake
"I want to talk with the utmost frankness, and say to you that tongues have been to me the making of my ministry." — John G. Lake
"Baptism means a degree of the Spirit upon the life sufficient to give the Spirit of God such absolute control of the person that He will be able to speak through him in tongues. Any lesser degree cannot be called the baptism or submersion, and we feel could properly be spoken of as an anointing. The life may be covered with deep anointings of the Holy Ghost yet not in sufficient degree to be properly called the baptism." — John G. Lake

Ａ Ｗｏｎｄｅｒｆｕｌ Ｐａｒａｄｏｘ:(¯`•._)([ A real Christian is an odd number. He feels supreme love for the One Whom he has never seen; talks familiarly every day to Someone he cannot see; expects to go to Heaven on the virtue of Another; empties himself in order to be full; admits he is wrong so he can be declared right; goes down in order to get up; is strongest when he is weakest; richest when he is poorest and happiest when he feels the worst. He dies so he can live; forsakes in order to have; gives away so he can keep; sees the invisible; hears the inaudible’ and knows that which passeth understanding. ] )(¯`•._)

ℳαηηα ḟøґ тℌℯ Ðα¥ : "I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the LORD." (Psalm 34:1-2, NKJV).Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : I have truly learnt what it really means to bless the Lord at all times. It means no matter what we feel, whether happy or depressive, whether having everything or nothing, whether our situation is good or bad, whether people have appreciated our heartfelt work for the Lord or have spoken ill of it, whether someone who has stood with us in our vision has stood faithful or have forsaken us....we must be blessing the Lord. This does not come easily, only when we choose to make it a habit to bless the Lord especially in the bad times, such noble divine character can be inculcated in to our lives for the GLORY OF GOD! Once we start to grow in this habit of blessing the Lord at all times, then supernaturally God will release His heavenly praise to come out of our mouth continually, which will release the presence of God in to our soul to make its boast in the Lord! Today bless the Lord in all your situation, if you have started it today, you are on your way to attain heavenly blessedness on earth and without fail your soul will be like a watered garden always spiritually.ℳüḉ♄ ℬℓℯṧṧ☤ηℊṧ.....
