Do Not Miss The Point of The View of Christmas

Read Matthew 1:18-23
This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about; His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit, because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly. But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”)
Say – God is with us!
If today any nation is strong it is strong because of it's army forces
To be at the border and face the enemy is one thing but to cross the border and enter in the territory of the enemy is another thing
Say – Lord of the host is with us, He is our strong hold
Let us read a scripture from Bible
1 John 3:8b
……  the reason Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.
When you enter in the territory of your enemy it means you are charged completely.
That is what Jesus did.
He was fully charged and for what He was sent
The interesting story of Christmas was written with a deep purpose by our creator 
Because of the love of the creator Jesus entered into the territory of the enemy, so that He could bring deliverance to the people from the bondage of the devil and set them free from eternal death
He agreed to die a death on the cross and suffered insult, pain and sorrows and thus paid the price for our sins
Read Romans 5:6
You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly
In this busy Christmas season I pray that you don’t miss the point of view of Christmas
Remember He was born so that we can escape from the fire of the hell
Read John 3:16
 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
You are also called by the same God for the same purpose what Jesus did. Let me explain this more.
Could you go to the camp of the enemy this Christmas and pray for the salvation of the captives?
Read Luke 15:7
 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
Allow the heaven to come right now in the midst of you and you rejoice in the Lord because Christ the Savior is born

Do Not Delete But Unwrap The Gift

Do Not Delete But Unwrap The Gift

As I sat today before God for giving me the right word for you, one thing
was reminded to me.
Let us read James 1:17
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of
the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows
Can it be possible about you?
Say - Yes!!!
Because you are not of your own choice but of God and given to your parents,
whether they wanted you or not!!
Say – I am a perfect gift from God
Before I move further I will share a testimony of my life
I am the last born and 7th in the family. My mother never wanted to have me because she already had six children. I was an extra luggage and she didn't want to have me.
Say – OUCH
Sometimes we are an extra luggage and people don’t want us
But remember God wants each one of us
Say – I am God’s desire
So finally my mother had some deleting (abortion) pills because she didn't want to have 7 children
Say – Deleting pills OUCH
But it did not work
Say – I am God’s desire
then she had another round of dose
Say – Deleting pills OUCH
But still I was safe
Say – I am God’s desire
Read Romans 8:38-39
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord
There may be many Deleting pills OUCHES in your lives, someone will Delete your joy or someone will Delete your time or many more things but remember you are God’s desire. He will still be holding you with your right hand and no one will be able to separate you from His love.
Say – I cannot be deleted, I am gift of God
Say – I am growing and going to unwrap the gift of God
When Jesus came, He brought the gift of life for us
Let us Read Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord
In Ephesians 2:28, it says
For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God
Are you ready to unwrap the gift of God today with me, then I have good news for you
You may be in impossible situation and might say, ‘It’s impossible’
But God says to you in Luke 18:27 "All things are possible"
You may be tired and might say, ‘I’m too tired’
But God says to you in Matthew 11:28-30, I will give you rest
You may be hated and might say ‘Nobody really loves me’
But God says to you in John 3:1 6 I love you
You may be discouraged and might say, ‘I can’t go on’
But God says to you in 2 Corinthians 12:9 My grace is sufficient
You may be confused and might say, ‘I don’t know what to do’
But God says to you in Proverbs 3:5-6 I will direct your steps
You may be failed and might say, ‘I can’t do it’
But God says to you in Philippians 4:13  You can do all things
You may be weak and might say, ‘I’m not able’
But God says to you in 2 Corinthians 9:8  I am able
You may be low esteem and might say, ‘It’s not worth it’
But God says to you in Romans 8:28  It will be worth it
You may be defeated and might say, ‘I can’t forgive myself’
But God says to you in 1 John 1:9 I Forgive you
You may be lacking and might say, ‘I can’t manage’
But God says to you in Philippians 4:19  I will supply all your needs
You may be fearful and might say, ‘I’m afraid’
But God says to you in 2 Timothy 1:7 I have not given you a spirit of fear
You may be worried and might say, ‘I’m worried and frustrated’
But God says to you in 1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your cares on me
You may be very simple and might say, ‘I’m not smart enough’
But God says to you in 1 Corinthians 1:30 I give you wisdom
You may be without any friend and might say, ‘I feel all alone’
But God says to you in Hebrews 13:5 I will never leave you or forsake you
Can you see the love of God for your life?
In John 10:10, Jesus talks about life more abundantly
This Christmas season as many of you looking forward for some good party and gifts, remember Jesus is the reason for this season so do not delete the true reason of this season but receive all what God has in store for you through Jesus Christ
Merry Christmas to all

No Situation is Hopeless

“Success is state of mind”.
It is your attitude which determines your thinking. If you have an attitude of achieving success in your life, you will discipline your mind and body. That is the beginning to be an over comer
In Revelation 12:11, it says they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimonies
Who is this Lamb?
Read John 1:29, …….”Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world”
Say- My sin penalty has been paid
Say – I am an over-comer
Sometime back, I read a story which talked about a poor old man who became rich. During that time cars were invented for only very rich people who could afford it. To show his wealth he purchased a car for himself and nice suit with hat. Every morning he would go out in his car greet people and come back without blowing his horn even once.
Do you want to know why?
Because he had two horses pulling his car the whole day
Do you want to know why were horses pulling his car?
Because he never knew how to drive the car
Most of the time we are also like him, who have God given potential of not two horses but of hundreds of horses in us, but we do not know how to operate in the realm of blessing
Say – I have potential
Say – I will operate in the realm of blessing
I am taking you bit further it will open your eyes to recognize your worth and the ability God has given you as a child of God
Read Luke 16:19-26,
“There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.
“The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’
“But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.’
Notice few things here
1. The story teller is no one but Jesus, and He will sit on the judgment seat and judge us in the day of judgment
2. A judge has every authority to forgive or to punish, Jesus came to forgive you
3. Ask Him and He will forgive you all your sins
4. The rich-man was not right before God but was well focused in his goals that is why he gained success in this world but he missed his eternity in heaven
5. It means rich-man was sinning
6. Lazarus the beggar had all the potential to have everything on this earth as well in heaven but he missed the prosperity on the earth due to his ignorance
Read Hosea 4:6, it says “My people are destroyed from the lack of knowledge”
7. It means Lazarus was lazy and ignorant of all what God had already given to him
8. He was sick and not able to work, that’s why he was relying on the food which was thrown from rich-man’s house
9. He was unaware of his healing
But see the end result of these two men’s life, one who lived richly reached to eternal torment and the beggar in the heaven
Say – I will not be destroyed
Say – I have knowledge
Many a times as a youth I have questioned God
“Why do you allow the bad men to flourish?” The same way as Jeremiah cried unto The Lord
Jeremiah 12:1
You are always righteous, O LORD, when I bring a case before you. Yet I would speak with you about your justice: Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why do all the faithless live at ease?
As I began to grow in Lord I understood 3 principles, which helped me to know, why it happens?
1. I learned as per Genesis 3:17, ……”Cursed is the ground because of you, through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life” Every man has to work hard to get prosperity
2. I learned as per Deuteronomy 8:17 and18, “….. my power and the strength of my hands have produce this wealth for me But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth,…”
3. I learned that one can become prosperous when he gets the inheritance from his father
To make it easier I will say one can be prosperous
1. Through his hard work
2. Through hard work and favor of God
3. Through transfer of the property from father to son etc.
4. Through cheating also
I will ask you, “Which one is the best prosperity?”
Through hard work and favor of God!!
Say – I work hard every day
Say – I have favor of God always
Today I am here to encourage all of you and tell you whatever may be your situation but there is always hope in Christ, come out of your situation and tap into your God given ability and allow His Holy Spirit to operate in your life to make it successful in every area of your life
God wants us to be knowledgeable
God wants us to be prosperous
God wants us to be in heaven not to hell
God wants us to be sin free
God wants us to be healed
Stand at your feet and talk to Him
Ask Him to forgive you and release His favor upon you

Evangelism in Tanzania

Mark 16:15, He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.” We had our first two months evangelism in Dar-es salaam, Tanzania, among youths. It was awesome. Holy Spirit moved mightily. The life was transformed. God gave wonderful miracle to a young couple whose one year old baby girl Glory was unable to move her body (paralyzed). Now that child is sitting, kicking, moving and smiling. 
Praise God

Glory of God in Glory's life

Youth rejoicing in the Lord

Youth rejoicing in the Lord

Worshipping the Lord

Worshipping the Lord

Brother Arun Addressing to the youths in our very first fellowship

Pastor Benjamin happened to be in Dar Es Salaam and he took the opportunity to be with us

praying for the healing

Healing of the deaf, evil spirit left her ear

Youth were very excited for this first meeting, they arranged every thing on their own

Altar call and many were healed

Fire of God was over the youths

I am set apart

God has called each one of us to be more than conquerors
God calls us peculiar generation
God calls us royal priests
God calls us heads not the tails
Say- I am set apart
Say – I am head not the tail
If I ask you to make a list about the qualities of yours, you will find yourself unique
Actually your qualities are result of your confidence
Do you know that confidence is the answer to all our failures
If we take two people, one with less knowledge but high level of confidence and another with more knowledge but low level of confidence.
What do you think  who will have more success?
Definitely the one with more confidence
1.   The more confident person will act boldly
2.   The more confident person learns from the past mistakes
3.   The less confident person prefers to be calm and mostly he misses the leadership qualities
But here I have a question
How are we going to become more confident?
Read Romans 10:17
If you have faith in the word of God you will have confidence
Say- God guides me, he provides me
Say – I am a leader
Read Philipians 4:19
Look at your situation
You may have any type of need, but now remember the word that your God will supply all your need.
Here is your solution. The word which you have heard will create confidence in you
Say – I am creating confidence in me
Say – I am set apart
That means your confidence is the direct cause of your action 
That also means, if you are lacking the confidence in doing something, you have to have faith in the word that you can do anything by Christ who strengthens you, and then you need to take an action.
Look at this formula of CARS
It will drive you on the track
Say – I am on my right track at the right time
Everyone likes cars
Here's the formula, Confidence = Action + Risk + Success
James 2:17
We all say we have faith but we don’t take action or we doubt in the word of God
That is why many blessings which are ours remain away from us
Most people murmur and do not achieve success in their lives, because they fear to take action and adopt a life of failure
But today I have come to tell you that success or failure is nothing but mere a state of mind.
Say – failure is the state of mind so is success
Say – I am successful
If you want to be confident, then you have to take an action
Run. Do. Move. Study. Risk. Decide. Choose. Succeed.
Persevere. Go. Believe. Jump. Create. Build. Draw.
Speak. Live. Love. Be. Give. Accept. Write.
Say – I am taking action that’s why I am confident
Say - I am set apart
Pray for confidence and success in every areas of life
God as we are sharing Jesus we declare that people are ready to accept Jesus and many soul will come in His Kingdom and become His disciples

Do you Love me feed my sheep

In my last week’s message I wrote, “All of our actions come from a basic human survival instinct, which is in real sense, love for us.”
I still remember, few months back we went to one of the government hospitals for the vaccinations for our son, who was traveling to the US. In the reception area there was a counter to check the weight of the infants. The weighing hook was attached with a romper (shorts with the bib kind of a dress). A mother came to weigh her two months baby. We saw the baby was sleeping in her mom’s lap with all security,  she puts her baby in that bag, we noticed everything was normal but as soon as she hangs the bag on the hook again to get her weight, the baby pushed her hands and leg for survival and began to cry.
Why did the baby do so?
She felt insecure and tried to push herself in her capability for survival
You and I also do the same for our survival, 
Isn't it true!
Remember “All of our actions come from a basic human survival instinct, which is in real sense, love for us.”
We love our families, friends, relatives and neighbors too. Sometimes we love someone very special that we are ready to do anything for that person. In a way every one of us are precious for our loved ones. 
God also loves us as His family. We are so precious in God’s eye that is why He gave His only son that whosoever believes in Him will have eternal life.
Way back in year 2001, I struggle in my life to that extent that for me all roads were ending to the dead end. I was in this country (Tanzania), my son was studying in a missionary school, I was interacting with the people who knew Christ, still Christ was not shared with me. I needed Him so desperately; still He was kept away from me.
I am sure there were many people who would be praying for the salvation of the lost
I am sure there were many desiring God to save the Indians
I am sure this must be taking place, still I did not have even one person coming to me and sharing the love, healing and saving message of Christ.
Until one day when I broke completely God used a friend of mine, in the midst of Idol worshipping at her house, she asked me to go and see a person and know how she get delivered of her trouble.
I will again repeat, “All of our actions come from a basic human survival instinct, which is in real sense, love for us.”
Will you ask me what my reaction to my friend’s suggestion was?
I ran for the solution!
Say – Love for us
Say – Survival instinct
Read Matthew 9:37-38
Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field."
Jesus preached, healed and saved people.
Think – I was never visited by a believer but God used a non-believer from the midst of the idol worshiping, to tell me the way
Say - God can use any one
Say - Survival instinct
Think – what is yours and mine role in the kingdom of God
Read Romans 10:14-15
How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"
Are you waiting for someone to send you?
Then I have good news for you
Read Matthew 28:19-20
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:  and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
Jesus has given you a word for you to go and preach the good news. If you will not go He will use someone else. God is irrespective of a person. I am ready He will use me. You are ready, He will use you.
Say – love your neighbours as yourself
Say – Survival instinct
The night before Jesus was crucified Peter said three times that he did not know Jesus. Peter lied because he was afraid, but later he was so sorry that he cried. The same Peter changed completely when Jesus rose from the dead; he knew the truth about Him.
Read John 21:17
The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?"
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you."                                    
Jesus said, "Feed my sheep.
Today, each one of us must ask the question: "Do I love Jesus Christ?"
Jesus could have asked Peter, “Are you a man of faith, do you hold an important office in the church, have you casted out devils" But He simply asked, "Simon, Son of Jonah, do you love me?"
Some people put their love in their work, their family, their ministries, and put Jesus on hold
Say – love Jesus
Say – survival instinct
What does it mean to Love Jesus?
It means to put Him first and obey Him
Read Psalm 2:7-8
I will proclaim the decree of the LORD: He said to me, "You are my Son;
today I have become your Father.
Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.
Loving Jesus means love His people
Whatever belongs to Jesus He gave to the one who believes in Him. He has chosen you and me to rule till the ends of the earth
We are all like that small baby who pushed herself for survival.
There is no one who came from heaven,
There is no one who died for you and me,
There is no one who rose from the dead for you and me.
Yes, there is no one but Jesus who came from heaven who died for you and me and He alone can give us the life and no one, because He alone rose from the dead the third day
Take your step, show the people who do not know Him
Tell them He loves them
Preach the good news of saving and healing message of Jesus Christ to the lost and unsaved
If anyone who can save us from the fire of hell is Jesus alone
Say – Jesus asks you, “Do you love me”
Say – Jesus commands, “Preach the saving message”
Prayer -
father in the name of Jesus
I pray as per Luke 10:2, use me for the kingdom of God and make me your faithful servant

Team Ready for Two Months Evangelism/दो महीने के प्रचार के लिए टीम तैयार

Luke 10:2, He told them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field."
In India, every year, we go for evangelism for two months. It slows down with Christmas celebration. Last year we were 12 in this team. This year we are more than 24 in evangelism team. Praise God!
लुका 10:2, उसने उनसे कहा, "फसल तो बहुत खड़ी है, पर मजदूर थोड़े हैं, अतः खेत के मालिक से विनती करो कि वह अपने खेत में मजदूर भेजे |"
इंडिया में हर साल हम लोग दो महीने के प्रचार के लिए जाते हैं, जो क्रिसमस के जलसे के साथ धीमा हो जाता है| पिछले साल  12 लोग इस टीम में थे, इस बार 24 से अधिक लोग इस टीम में हैं | परमेश्वर की महीमा हो !
Matthew 9:37-38 "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field."
"फसल तो बहुत खड़ी है, पर मजदूर थोड़े हैं, अतः खेत के मालिक से विनती करो कि वह अपने खेत में मजदूर भेजे |""
            John 3:18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.
जो उस पर विश्वास करता है, वह दोषी नहीं ठहराया जाता है | जो विश्वास नहीं करता है वह दोषी ठहराया जा चुका है, क्योंकि उसने परमेश्वर के इकलौते पुत्र के नाम पर विश्वास नहीं किया 
2 Corinthians 6:2
For he says, "In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you." I tell you, now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation.
क्योंकि वह कहता है, :गृहण किये जाने के समय मैंने तेरी सुन ली, और उद्धार के दिन मैंने तेरी सहायता की| देखो, अभी उद्धार गृहण किये जाने का समय है | देखो अभी वह उद्धार का दिन है |

John 3:3
In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again."

यीशु ने उत्तर देते हुए उससे कहा, " मैं तुम से सच-सच कहता हूं, जब तक कोई नया जन्म ना ले ले, वह परमेश्वर का राज्य नहीं देख सकता
John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his One and Only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.क्योंकि परमेश्वर ने जगत से ऐसा प्रेम किया कि उसने अपना इकलौता पुत्र दे दिया, कि जो कोई उस पर विश्वास करे वह नाश ना हो, परन्तु अनंत जीवन पाए 
Acts 1:8
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
परन्तु जब पवित्र आत्मा तुम्हारे ऊपर आएगा, तब तुम सामर्थ पाओगे, और यरूशलेम, सारे यहूदिया और समारिया  में यहाँ तक कि पृथ्वी के छोर तक तुम मेरे साक्षी होगे

Acts 16:31
They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved--you and your household."
उन्होंने उत्तर दिया, "प्रभु यीशु पर विश्वास करो, तुम और तुम्हारा घराना उद्धार पायेगा"

Luke 19:10
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost
मनुष्य का पुत्र तो खोये हों को ढूंडने और उनका उद्धार करने आया है

White-Out is a Better Solution!

Last term when we were preparing the report cards, one of the Primary teachers did some mistakes in filling the report cards. She was told by the head of primary section to get it photocopied from outside and again fill the reports. It was quite tough for her, she complained that she was not aware of that column that is why she put a tick. What I remember the whole issue resulted into bitterness, hatred and hopelessness.
I wish the head of primary would have used the white-out on this situation.
What would you do, when you find someone’s mistakes towards you?
Let us read Mat 6:12, 14-15.
"Forgive us the wrongs that we have done, as we forgive the wrongs others have done us. For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But, if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins."
God has given a wonderful white-out to all of us.
“It is Jesus millennium product”.
He has given it to you and me freely. Brand name of this product is forgiveness.
He uses that on our mistakes and He wants us to do same. But many times we are failed to apply it and try to use force of eraser or blade to remove the mistakes, which finally results into a scar.
But white-out is a better solution, it will remind you with brightness and you will not be ignorant of the past.
Say-I won’t be ignorant of the past
Say-White out is a better solution!
Every now and then I see our students keep repeating the mistakes, if we analyze these, we clearly see 3 different levels
1. They broke the rules unknowingly, because of their growth level
2. They broke the rules because of their ill brought up
3. They broke the rules because they were moving out of the school
Whenever anything happens in my life or in the lives of my near ones, I always take time to study and learn the pattern of life, through the students of my school. God’s kingdom is not at all less in any way than a school.
Say-I am learning
Say-White out is a better solution!
All of our actions come from a basic human survival instinct, which in real sense is, love for ourselves
Ask your neighbor, how much do you love yourself?
Many times when we look back and see how we did in the past, we always think, if I had known it; I could have done things differently in the past.
From this perspective, will you say, that was not wrong!
Definitely not! Wrong is wrong, but there can be explanations and reasons for that
However, it is important to see why you did and what you did so that you can have self forgiveness because if you do not forgives yourself it will block your personal progress
Say- It is time to let go off the burden of the past.
Say- White out is a better solution!
We are all learning and growing and we act in agreement with whatever stage of growth we are on at the time. We all have shames and guilt in our past lives. As children, many times we were judged but not explained the reason for our punishment.
That results into growing the negative approach. This negative approach will lead us into deeper wounds which are not in alignment with the word of God. God calls us unique, peculiar and blessed and apple of His eyes.
Say-I am apple of God’s eye
Say-White out is a better solution!
Let us read Romans 12:17-19
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay”, says the Lord.
I like two words in this passage a lot and that makes me full of joy of the Lord. These two words made me from sinner to righteous
These two wonderful words are wrath and avenge
What! Wrath and Avenge, how can these words be wonderful
Bible says God wants all of us to come to the knowledge of God; He wants all of us to be saved. Once I was a sinner and under the wrath of God and I was troubled in my life but notice the wrath and punishment of God brought me into His kingdom. Because of my troubles I began to search God. It means wrath of God is not anger with hatred, but it is with restoration. That’s why Paul wrote, Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay”, says the Lord.
What about your anger? Is it mix with restoration or separation?
Say- God is able
Say- White out is a better solution!
From God's perspective- Nothing is hidden from Him and yet He is always ready to forgive us and He forgets our sins, remembers them no more
Let us Read Heb 8:12
For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."
Say-God remembers my sins no more
Say-White out is a better solution!
Most forgiveness issues have three levels
1. Outwardly- we just say forgive or forgiven but does not really mean from the heart
2. Feeling based- sometimes we ask for forgiveness or we forgive  people because of our emotions, but truly not
3. Conviction from Holy Spirit- true and only repentance is through Holy Spirit. When God convicts us, there is always restoration. There may be no restoration between the people but still you will settle peace between you and God.
Many a times when we do mistakes, people see us as someone unworthy or like criminals. Like nothing can be done now, God’s wrath will fall upon and this person will die, or will go to hell. All hell and demon scripture become alive for that person
Legally a person, who is under the trail of the court, cannot be declared criminal until the judge declares it. Now there is a good report, our Judge Jesus doesn’t hold our sins against us. He has forgiven us.
Say-I am on my way to heaven
Say-White out is a better solution!
Remember Learning to live for God doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a journey
Making mistakes is a leaning .process, as we learn; we increase in awareness and grow
There are no mistakes from the viewpoint of our creator. He gives us the experience to lead others
Let us read Hebrews 12:1-3
And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up
Be glad about your progress, you're growing and seeing your life improved each day little by little. Salvation Is of God’s love for you and how his Spirit living in you will guide, protect, love, forgive, and love you again.
Say- God has given a wonderful white-out to all of us.
Say- Jesus millennium product is a better solution!
Pray and ask God to forgive you from all your past hurts, pain and release every person unto God. Be ready to receive an abundant life

White-Out is a Better Solution!

Today may be Friday but My Sunday is Coming

Today may be Friday but My Sunday is Coming

Let us read Mark 15:20-21
And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him out to crucify him. A certain man from Cyrene, Simon, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country, and they forced him to carry the cross.
This is the scene of that very day when Jesus was taken to the cross for crucifixion. It seems Romans wanted everyone to see the condemned man Jesus, so they took him via the city and market places in order that he would be seen by the most people.
My question is why did Romans do so?
For creating the atmosphere so that people will be afraid of breaking the law. 
Wherever there is fear of loosing the position this will happen. in around 16 years of my
school  administration I have seen children becoming obedient through love, kindness and counselling but whenever they were punished severely they rebelled
What was Simon be thinking of when he forced to carry the cross?
He must be ashamed, embarrassed and bitter and must be thinking, ”I am in the wrong place at the wrong time”
Was he really in the wrong place?
Read Acts 13:1
In the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers: Baranabas, Simeon called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen (who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch)  and Saul.
today we have trials and tribulations that come to us because of believing what Jesus believed and saying what Jesus said and living like he lived,
That day Simon of Cyrene unwillingly served Jesus, but same Simon followed him all his life
How many times we suffer the same way and become bitter and feel the pain and think that we are in the wrong place 
But today I am here to tell you if your trust is Jesus you are in the right place at the right time
We all want to experience the resurrection, the solution in our lives, but are we ready to die?
If yes,
Then God is ready to turn our dead situation around and make it alive
Say - My Sunday is Coming!!
Read Philippians 3:10-11
I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.
“How” you suffer is the key to whether you qualify for a resurrection or not?
When you suffer, do you look like Christ when He suffered or not? 
Do people recognize Christ in you when you suffer or not?
I understand one thing that Bible is the book of principles
Jesus resurrected after death, He had to die. He spoke to the father, not my will but thy will be done
Many times we suffer persecution in our lives, truly speaking, when I was persecuted I just wanted to run from the humiliation 
But in Christ no turning back, so we face it
Say - My Sunday is Coming!!
I want to share some of the principles of suffering
1. Do not try to suffer alone, get help. Remember Simon carried the cross of Jesus.
Jesus did not suffer without help. He needed Simon to help carry His cross. He did not try to accomplish redemption without human help. 
If Christ needed help then surely we are not stronger than Him. We need Simon in our lives so that our heavy burden can be shared
Say - My Sunday is Coming!!
2. Self pity blocks God’s intervention 
When Jesus was at the cross He told his mother and the women not to weep for Him. But when we suffer we want the whole world to know our sufferings
Self pity comes from a sense of unrecognized value.
Say - I am Recognized Child of God, My Sunday is Coming!!
3. Forgiveness is the qualification for the resurrection
Jesus had no hatred toward the thieves on the cross, toward the soldiers doing their duty.
What about you?
Do you hold people responsible for damaging your life? 
If so?            
Then how can you expect Sunday to come?
If you hold on to bitterness
If you do not forgive everyone who you think has harmed you, 
then how can you claim to suffer with Christ if you do not forgive like Christ forgave on the cross? 
He said, “Father, forgive them, they do not know what they do.”
Jesus made sure that he qualifies for the resurrection. 
What about you?
We miss our Sunday because, we forget that we are born again and have the nature of the Father.
Nature of loving and forgiving as Christ did at the cross saying, “Father, forgive them, they do not know what they do.”       
say- As I follow Christ example in suffering, I will experience His glorious resurrection power.
Say - My Sunday is Coming!!
Pray for forgiveness and receive healing and open doors for your prosperity in every area of your life
Say - My Sunday is Coming!!
