Sin and Suffering

Sin is ruling the world that’s the reason people are suffering. God wants to give peaceful life to man. But because of sin devil steals the happiness of man. Corruption is sin.

People are living a frustrated life. Because sin is ruling in their hearts. Sin eats people’s health, wealth. Sin is spread across all levels, powers of humanity. People are looking for a solution. They want a change. They want to end corruption.

But they cannot find a answer. Well there is no immediate answer but there is one person who can bring a change into this world to India. He is Jesus. Everyone needs to accept Jesus as their saviour. We will see change in people their minds will be transformed. Because he alone died for our sins.

When we accept him as our savior our sins will be forgiven. We will not be a slave to sin. Man will not look for his own self but he will think about others.

He will think about helping others. Man has lost his mind because of sin. Devil brings fear in mans mind and because of fear man sins. Jesus removes fear from mans mind. Jesus will give peace not as the world gives but his peace will he give and then man will have eternal peace.

Our Heritage

Today many brothers and sisters don’t know what’s Gods will for them in their life. They don’t have the burden which their parents have. They look like they are walking not on the main road but on the side road.

They are not walking as per the will of God but as per their own desires and not as per the desire of God.

They have ambitions which are not based on the past blessings. They only consider future blessings. They don’t praise God and thank him for their past blessings.

They don’t understand and remember the heritage which God has given them. Psalmist says that in 61:5 “Thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.”

God has given us the heritage of our forefathers who feared the name of God. This heritage is more valuable than all the riches of the world. We need to thank God for giving this heritage.

God has given salvation to our forefathers. He choosed us to be his people. God gave us salvation. He saved us from idol worship.

By giving us salvation God has blessed us. He planted us near the flow of living water.

We need to glorify, praise God for giving this heritage. This heritage gives eternal life.

Psalmist says in 16:5 – Lord you are my inheritance. You are the portion of my inheritance.

Let’s remember our heritage and our inheritance and ask God for our future blessings.

Fearing God and Obeying God

Man should fear God. Man should fear God and should obey Gods commandments.

The wrath of God would be kindled upon man one day. The dead man will also be judged when Jesus comes. Man should repent and he should repent for his sins. The real repentance in man will bring a change in man.

Repentance with tears. Repentance with deep broken heart. Repentance for his sins by asking Jesus to forgive. Only Jesus Christ can change our thoughts. Only Jesus Christ can change our minds.

Only Jesus Christ can turn our rock like hearts into compassionate hearts. Because Jesus Christ gave himself as a sacrifice to save us. Jesus Christ bore all our sins on the cross. He died on the cross and rose from death and overcame death. Death came as a result of sin.

As per law sin takes man into death. Sin should not be committed. If sin should not be committed then minds of people should be transformed.

Jesus Christ can transform the minds of people. A transformed person is a peaceful and happy person. His thoughts are clean. A transformed person has fear of God in him.

A transformed person has a mind of Jesus Christ. A carnal mind leads to death. But a transformed mind has life and peace. Eternal life and eternal peace.

Man is searching for life and peace from the world. But Jesus says that he will give eternal life and everlasting peace.

No one can steal the life and peace which Jesus gives. It will be there eternally with you. Even after your death.

5 Loaves and 2 Fishes

Today we can see every servant of God is in need of 5 l & 2 f. Everyone want to feed 5 thousand people. Every heart of the servant of God is the heart of Jesus. Every servant of god want to help people. But, the servant of god is not having 5 l & 2 f.

Jesus was preaching and a multitude of people gathered. They were listening to Jesus for three days. They didn’t have anything to eat. They were hungry. They were hungry in flesh but spiritually they were not hungry. Jesus filled their hearts with all spiritual things. Jesus preached and taught the word of god, he healed people, he casted out devils. He brought peace in people’s hearts.

Jesus won the hearts of the people towards God. At the end everyone were hungry and Jesus when asked for food. A small boy with a good heart gave whatever he had. God blessed it and it was enough for everyone.

Today we see many Christians who have sufficient wealth but they are not ready to give it to God. Their hearts are still not touched by the word of God to give for the work of God. Still they don’t come forward to give 5 l & 2 f.

Word of God has the power to change and influence the hearts of people. You might be serving the lord from a desert place where you don’t have anything. There is no need to worry, word of God has the power to give you 5 l & 2 f.

Repent ye for the Kingdom of God is at Hand

John started his ministry with these words and Jesus started his ministry with these words.

“And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Matthew 3:2 KJV

“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Matthew 4:17 KJV

God has compassion towards sinners. People in this world are doing various things to sin against the god.

A drunkard he thinks that there is no sin in him. World is angry with him because he is wasting his money. World has left him saying we can’t do anything with him. But god has a compassion and mercy and grace towards him. God is showing great mercy towards him. Jesus says – I have come to save the sinners and to show them how much I love them. I am giving my blood to save you.

Now you might say what shall I do now to whom shall I repent. Well repent to Jesus. He is our mediator. You should have deep conviction of sin. If you have deep conviction of sin and if you believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins and shed his blood, God will no more remember your sins. He will cleanse them as white as snow. If you accept Jesus as your savior and if you repent for your sins and follow his commandments then today is the day.

Now to those of you who already repented, dont you have the thirst to save the world. Is this not our responsibility to save the world. God wants to send the rivers of living water from you to others.

“In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” John 7:37-38 KJV

Rom8:1 says we should not walk in flesh but we should walk in spirit. Don’t think in flesh. If we think in flesh we will hate sinners but if we think in spirit we will love uttermost sinners. Walking in spirit means leading our life in spirit through the guidance of the spirit of the lord.

Saviour and King – Christmas Message

The birth of Jesus tells us two important things that Jesus was Saviour and King.

Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Matthew 2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

Jesus whom God sent into this world was truly a Son of God, Son of Man, Son of a King.

Matthew 1:1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

In Bible its written Jesus is the son of David and the son of Abraham. Jesus is the son of Abraham and he is a Saviour for us. God choose Abraham and called him and told him that he will make his seed as the sand of the sea. And he will bless all nations through him. Jesus is also called son of David and he is King of Kings.

First lets see the Saviour in Jesus

If Jesus had to be born into this world as a saviour and save people from his sins then he should not be born as a sinner. His birth should be divine.

God who was existing before the foundation of the world should be born into this world with a divine nature.

There are two important things

Birth of Jesus should not inherit Sin of Adam. And Jesus should not inherit physical defects.

Psalms 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

Jesus should be born not through the natural worldly process of birth but he should be born without inheriting sin. The nature of sin is inherent in every human being by birth. We see that in the world and the Bible says the same.

Psalms 58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

Inherent sin should not touch Jesus. Then it should be a divine birth and a Virgin giving birth by the miracle of God.

Job 14:4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one.

The above verse clearly tells us that how can a clean thing come out of an unclean thing. Is that possible? Jesus had to come into this world to save us and he had to come in the flesh to save us. He has to come in flesh and yet he had to be divine in nature.

John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Jesus should be born in flesh by the miraculous hand of the spirit of God.

Romans 8:3 …God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

God made us in their image and in their likeness. But we lost Gods likeness and Gods image and inherited the likeness of sinful flesh.

And God was willing to send his own son in the likeness of sinful flesh so that God could condemn sin in the flesh. So that whoever believes in him could be saved.

Jesus should be born in the likeness of sinful flesh but sin should not touch him. And that’s the importance of Virgin birth. With all the above if Jesus had to be a saviour of this world he had to be born of God into this world.

And there is no doubt it had to be a virgin birth and it was a virgin birth.

Jesus birth should be without sin. Next is Jesus birth should be without physical defects.

God has sent his only begotten son to be a lamb of this world. In the Old Testament whenever a offering was presented to the lord. Priest would make sure that the offering was without any defects.

1 Peter 1:19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

If Jesus was born through natural process he would have inherited physical defects of his fathers and forefathers.

If Jesus should not inherit any physical defects he had to be born only of God and the brith should not have any influence of either man or woman.

Hebrews 7:26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

Without the miracle of virgin birth salvation of mankind would not be possible.

Jesus Christ King of Kings

Jesus Christ is also called Son of David. This portrays that he is the king. Jesus is the saviour of this world and he is also a king. During his ministry Jesus laid out the principles of his kingdom.

Matthew 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

Here we see wise men coming from east to Jerusalem. They came to search for the king who was born guided by a star. These days we are hearing a lot about Jerusalem being declared as the capital of Israel. All the wise men of these days are looking at Jerusalem. The only thing is they should see Jesus in Jerusalem. As the wise men during that time saw Jesus in Jerusalem.

During the birth of Jesus the wise men saw king in Jesus. This is an important thing. Jesus is a lamb yet he is a lion.

Revelation 5:5-6 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

And the wise men brought gifts to Jesus to worship him. Question is from where did these wise men come from and they came from east as it is written in the Bible.

Some scholars and commentators say that they might have come from the old babylon. They would have known about the prophecies of Christ through the Jews who were in Babylon.

And the wise men brought in Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. Gold stands for Kingship, Frankincense for Worship and Myrrh for perfume. Some say that Myrrh was a sign for prediction of the Jesus death.
