MAN’S NATURE

We want to grow, We want to win, We want to conquer.

We want to live happily ever after.

In reality, We are growing old. Our victory is no more, our conquest is coming to an end. And we do not realise it’s not happily ever after. Today’s success is tomorrow’s failure. After experiencing our life, we go to the grave, and we are no more. Is this life? Is this what we are called for? You may say no but still, you will follow man’s ways.

A man came. He never showed His growth to us nor displayed His success. He never conquered nor boasted about His life. But, He was speaking about His death which proved He is immortal. He walked among us in the flesh, but His chronicles have nothing to do with manly desire. He never established a Kingdom on earth. But He is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. He had a terrible death, and He was denied justice. But He is the supreme judge. He never won a battle nor done any bloodshed, but the victory belongs to the Lord. He is the statue of forgiveness. No one can match his forgiveness. When He forgives, He doesn’t just forgive but erases our sin & curses. The world holds the authority to kill our body, but He holds the authority to cast our soul into the lake of fire. Still, He was poor in the spirit; He neither performed His own desire nor concentrated on His own growth or success.

The question is Dear man, do you know this man, SON OF FATHER GOD?

Do I need to Love God?

No, you don’t have to Love God. You have to dwell in the Love of God because God is Love. Love never changes; God never changes. Love covers a multitude of sins; God forgives our sins. I repeat God is Love. Love never changes; God is the same yesterday, today, forever. I tell you, God is Love. Love protects; God protects. Love never gives up; God never gives up.

He came in the form of flesh. He was Love. No one can match His Love. He was like a tender plant and like a root out of the dry ground. Still, he was Love. He had no beauty that we should desire Him. Again and again I say, He was Love.

He walked among us like a slave, you will not see a slave full of Love like Him. He had nothing to attract us. History wanted to erase Him. His Love made Him the centerpiece of history. There was nothing in His appearance that we should desire Him. But His Love made me fall for Him. Yes, I am in Love with Him and I can’t stop it. He is irresistible.

Out of His Love for me, He took my pain. I never heard or seen any God or angel or human saints, who could bore my life but He carried my sin, my curse, my pain, my suffering, my weakness, my sorrows and my infirmities.

Lately, I got to know the truth through the Bible, I wondered and couldn’t believe something like this can happen. His Love for me was before the foundation of the world. He saw me before I was created. He fell in Love with me, He could not resist me. He wanted me to sit with Him. What made me special will freak you out. I worshipped idols, I never knew Him or considered Him God. I made my Gods. I named them. I never worshipped the God who created me or called me by my name. I have done witchcraft. I made people enemies, I fought with them. I was jealous. My anger has killed many relations. I was very ambitious. I wanted to meet my desire at any cost. For that, I was ready to go extreme. For me, I was the only one important in the world. I caused conflict and factions.

Wow! this is too much. I can’t take this. Yes, you are right. I was first among the sinners. What made me a great sinner to be so special to God is His sheer love, which is beyond human perception. He so loved me, He sacrificed His only Son for me so that I’ll not perish. He resurrected His Son inside me. He imparted Holy Spirit through His Son inside me and made me His Son. He gave me a new mind; His Son’s mind, the Mind of Christ. He made me put to death, my human nature with all its passions and desires. His Spirit has given me life and He controls my life. Through His living breath ‘Holy spirit’ I discovered my Father’s Love, my Father’s joy, my Father’s peace that surpasses all understanding. Through my Father, I realized His patience. My eyes were full of tears when I experienced His kindness and goodness in action through me. I was never faithful. Now I don’t see me but His faithfulness through me. I never knew what humility is, now I know what God’s humility is. And He is showing His humility through me. Self-control was unknown to me. It is now a different story. I walk in the self-control by my Father who is in Heaven through Christ Jesus. Now I know I don’t need to be rich but poor in Spirit. I have now become a newborn child in the hands of my Heavenly Father through Christ Jesus with the help of the Holy Spirit.

As David says, Lord, I have given up my pride and turned away from my arrogance, I am not concerned with great matters or with subjects too difficult for me. Instead, I am content and at peace as a child lies quietly in its mother’s arms so my heart is quite within me. A man who is inside Christ is a new creation. Father God so Loves you, Father God gave His only begotten Son Jesus Christ to die for us and resurrected on behalf of us so that we will never perish.

My beloved, God is Love. Through Christ God is your Father.

Amen.

Why? We fall!

From the Genesis of my spiritual life, I was challenged and haunted by a question, why? we fall !

Romans Chapter 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” What does this mean, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God? Bible says, all have sinned that shows a biblical proportion of sinners. The first living being to sin and fall from God’s glory was not human being, it was ‘satan.’

In Isaiah chapter 14:12-15 says, “Look how you have fallen from the sky, O shining one, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the ground, O conqueror of the nations! You said to yourself, “I will climb up to the sky. Above the stars of El. I will set up my throne. I will rule on the mountain of assembly on the remote slopes of Zaphon. I will climb up to the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the most High!” But you were brought down to Sheol, to the remote slopes of the pit.”

The moment you feel rich in the Spirit, God knows you are fallen. Same happened with the angels. They failed to stay within the limits of authority God gave them. In Jude chapter 1:6 says, “And I remind you of the angels who did not stay within the limits of authority God gave them but left the place where they belonged. God has kept them securely chained in prisons of darkness, waiting for the great day of judgement.”

Same happened in the garden of Eden. The Adam’s family felt the need of being equal with God and self sufficient. Genesis chapter 3:4-7, “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God knowing both good and evil.” The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and it’s fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it too. At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves. That same attitude that made satan and angels sinners was imparted to Adam’s family. And till today it prevails through the mankind. Why we fall? because we are already fallen. Word of God stands as witness and proclaims “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

Romans chapter 7:14, “So the trouble is not with the law, for it is spiritual and good. The trouble is with me, for I am all too human, a slave to sin. I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it. Instead, I do what I hate. But if I know that what I am doing is wrong, this shows that I agree that the law is good. So I am not the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it. 

And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. I want to do what is right, but I can’t. I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway. But if I do what I don’t want to do, I am not really the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it. 

I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. I love God’s law with all my heart. But there is another power within me that is at war with my mind. This power makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God’s law, but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin.”

True freedom is not being like God but a life without sin with God. This is what exactly the life of Jesus Christ represents. Jesus Christ was without sin and blameless. In Philippians chapter 2: 5-11 says like this, “You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine privileges; he took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being. When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross. Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honour and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

Same satan who imparted sin into the mankind tested and tried to impart sin into Jesus. First satan asked, If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become loaves of bread. But Jesus told Him “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ ” (Matthew Chapter 4:4) It shows He did not want to depend on His supernatural power or His authority for His needs. He just wanted to depend on God the Father. In Matthew Chapter 4: 5-7 says, Then the devil took him to the holy city, Jerusalem, to the highest point of the Temple, and said, “If you are the Son of God, jump off! For the Scriptures say, ‘He will order his angels to protect you. And they will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.’ ”Jesus responded, “The Scriptures also say, ‘You must not test the Lord your God.’ ” Jesus Christ neither had an intention to test God our Father nor to exhibit his power to satan. Matthew Chapter 4:8-11 says, Next the devil took him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. “I will give it all to you,” he said, “if you will kneel down and worship me.” “Get out of here, Satan,” Jesus told him. “For the Scriptures say, ‘You must worship the Lord your God and serve only him.’ ” Then the devil went away, and angels came and took care of Jesus. Jesus Christ had no interest in any kingdoms of the world and their glory. He was poor in the spirit.

Sin demands to be self sufficient not God sufficient. Sin wants us not to depend on God. Sin will make us test the Lord. Sin will mould us to seek worship. Sin will take us away from worshipping God in Spirit and Truth. In one word sin will never let you to be poor in the Spirit, so that you can be a part of Kingdom of God the Father.

Before I close let me remind you about Apostle Peter, Peter said to Jesus Christ, He will never deny Him. Jesus said he will deny Him three times. And the words of Jesus Christ became true. Peter realised a hardcore truth that he can’t follow or seek Jesus with his ability but to seek His grace every moment to stay on track. For those who are in Christ Jesus, there is no condemnation. Be like a newborn baby in the presence of God the Father, enjoying His unfailing Love. Seeking every moment of the grace of Jesus Christ and availing the help of the Holy Spirit. That is the only way to stay away from sin. May the good God help you.

Amen.

Life lesson

Like a young child carried by its mother, was how David’s dependence on God. That was the only reason he came to be known as Man of God’s own heart. Psalms 131 reveals the heart and mind of David.

He prays to the Lord, “O Lord, my heart is not proud, nor do I have a haughty look. I do not have great aspirations, or concern myself with things that are beyond me. Indeed I am composed and quiet, like a young child carried by its mother; I am content like the young child I carry.”

David’s son was absolutely away from his father’s life lessons. His son Solomon was so hungry to acquire all the wealth and wisdom of the world. Ecclesiastes 1: 16-18 describes his experience of handling worldly wisdom and wealth. “I thought to myself, I have become much wiser than any of my predecessors who ruled over Jerusalem; I have acquired much wisdom and knowledge. So I decided to discern the benefit of wisdom and knowledge over foolish behaviour and ideas; however, I concluded that even this endeavour is like trying to chase the wind! For with great wisdom comes great frustration; whoever increases his knowledge merely increases his heartache.”

The World demands wealth and wisdom. The world will teach us about what we need. But the one who is from the other world, the Son of man teaches us to be poor in the Spirit. He said to us, be like a newborn baby to enter His Kingdom. Where are you standing? Are you walking in the shoe of King David or King Solomon? You can’t walk in two different shoes. You have to choose one pair and you can’t serve two masters. Do you know the reason behind the failure of King Solomon? One prime reason behind his failure was, he failed to know the purpose of his life. If he could realize, his creator was the reason behind his living, he would have found life in everything that he found as ‘Vain.’

Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 1: 27-31 say’s, “But God chose what the world thinks foolish to shame the wise, and God chose what the world thinks weak to shame the strong. God chose what is low and despised in the world, what is regarded as nothing, to set aside what is regarded as something, so that no one can boast in his presence. Father God is the reason you have a relationship with Jesus Christ, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”

Amen.

Stay Alert in Christ

Stay alert, stand firm in the faith, show courage, be strong. Everything you do should be done in Love. (1 Corinthians chapter 16: 13 & 14)

This word of God reminds me of the image of an army man who is at the war front. But the difference here is, that this soldier has to perform everything in Love. This soldier has no weapon but Love of Father God which is available through Christ Jesus. The grace of Jesus Christ is highly abundant in this soldier, and the companionship and help of the Holy Spirit is always available for him. That is what we are; a chosen generation called to proclaim Father God through Christ Jesus. Standing in the midst of wolves like a lamb, crossing the crooked path and narrow gates carrying the cross daily. And forcefully establishing the Kingdom of God. Not by might, not by power but everything in Love that is in Christ.

Why should we stay alert?

We are like the wise virgins who took lamp with the oil. Matthew Chapter 22:42 says, “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day on which your Lord will come.” Again, I say you are in a mortal form and you are exposed to temptations. Therefore “watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Matthew chapter 26:41) That is not enough, our Lord taught us in prayer; lead us not into temptation but deliver us from all the evil. Why do you pray this? you have to make sure you are standing firm in the faith. “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.” (Galatians Chapter 5:1) Therefore, show courage and be strong all you hope in the Lord. “Now, brothers, I want to remind you of gospel I preached to you, which you received and in which you stand firm.” (1 Corinthian chapter 15:1).

For this reason I say, Stay alert, stand firm in faith, show courage and be strong. Everything you do should be done in Love.

Amen.

ETERNAL PEACE

They took my Car away,

I was at Peace.

They took my Money away,

I was at Peace.

They took my Home away,

I was at Peace.

They took my mother away,

I was at Peace.

They took my siblings away,

I was at Peace.

They killed my Father with great pain,

I was at Peace.

They spoiled all my hard earned reputation,

I was at Peace.

They proved I was responsible for everything that happened, Still !

I was at Peace.

They said I deserve it,

Again, I was at Peace.

Finally, they came to take my Peace away,

I was still at Peace.

My Peace is not mortal, but eternal.

I am born of the Spirit of Yeshua from the eternal Father God.

Amen.

What is Sin?

Sin is the absence of Father God’s love through Jesus Christ (Yeshua). The only way to come out of sin is, the presence of Father God’s love enriched by the amazing grace of Jesus Christ with the unmerited help of the Holy Spirit.

Sin will be harvested until you come to terms with this truth. Sin is in our blood and in our flesh. Our DNA will transfer this to the coming generation as we receive it from our ancestors. In psalms 51:5 King David says, “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin my mother conceived me.”

Now our Father in Heaven is giving us an eternal opportunity to be born again. This can not be done by going back into your mothers womb. This is absolutely a spiritual transformation, that is Father in heaven who in the form of spirit is giving us a golden chance to be like Him. How can we be like our Father in heaven? Simple, be like Jesus. In other words, receive Son Jesus Christ as our personal saviour or be in Christ or repent and turn around to Jesus or becoming the part of the Body of Christ ‘The Church.’ All these are one and the same thing. Hebrews chapter 12:1,2 says, “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross ignored the shame and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God the Father.”

Remember, sin has never blessed anyone ever, sin has taken more life from the earth than any war, pandemic or poverty. Sin is a curse to humanity, get out of it. The wages of sin is death and Jesus Christ through the amazing love of Father God and grace of Jesus himself paid the price for our sins on the cross through his death. The same spirit who helped Jesus Christ to resurrect from the death is ready to help you to come out of sin. Beloved, there is deliverance for your sin. Come to Jesus and fall in love with Father God in heaven. Seek the help of Holy Spirit.

Amen

PRAYER (Part-2)

Jesus Christ asks us to pray this way,

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. (Matthew chapter 6:9)

This means, our prayer must be in deep reverence and remembrance of Father in heaven through Christ Jesus. It is possible only when you have a love enriched relationship with Father in heaven. There is only one way through which you can honour your Father in heaven as written in Matthew chapter 22:37 (NET), Jesus said to him, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind.” In one word, if you want to have an succesful prayer life, you need to have an unfailing love relationship with Father in heaven through Christ Jesus.

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. (Matthew chapter 6:10)

This prayer does not come from a human perspective. Ephesians chapter 1:10 (NLT), “This is the plan: At the right time He will bring everything together under the authority of Christ- everything in heaven and on earth.” This is why we are chosen INCHRIST by Father in Heaven. When you go through this you may think, why I should pray this prayer? The answer is THIS PRAYER MAKES US AWARE OF THE PLAN OF FATHER IN HEAVEN. Again, why we should pray? WE SHOULD PRAY BECAUSE WE ARE ASKED TO PRAY.

Give us this day our daily bread. (Matthew chapter 6:11)

After Lord Jesus Christ fasted for forty days and forty nights He was famished. The tempter came and said to Him, “If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.” But He answered, “It’s written, ‘Man doesn’t live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ “(Father in Heaven) (Matthew chapter 4:2-4). Through this word of God we get a picture of what this prayer means. The tempter failed to recognise he is speaking to the living bread, who came down from heaven. In John chapter 6:35, Jesus said to them, “I Am the bread of life. The one who comes to me will never go hungry, and the one who believes in me will never be thirsty.” (He is the living water).

Jesus Christ was not born from the desire of flesh but born of the Spirit of Father God. When we are born of the Spirit of God, spirit of God will give us our daily bread. As a new creation in Christ we need nourishment from Father God, everyday we need to receive from Him. Jesus Christ said ‘I am the living bread that came from heaven.’ The prayer give us today our daily bread means ‘give us today Jesus in our life.’

And forgive us our debts (sins), as we ourselves have forgiven our debtors (sinners). (Matthew chapter 6:12)

Forgiveness is a form of love. We can not forgive our debtors out of hatred but only out of love. This prayer is a self realisation of Father God’s indisputable love through Christ towards us. Father God wants us to come into His presence in Christ with a grateful heart. With the realisation that my Father has forgiven me so should I forgive everyone.

And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. (Matthew chapter 6:13)

Jesus said to His disciples in Matthew chapter 26:41, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” This prayer gives us a realisation of how weak we are, the spirit in us is the spirit of sonship but this awesome power is poured into an earthen vessel which is so fragile that we need to watch and pray. I encourage everybody, as long as you are in your flesh, you need to watch your life and you need to pray daily for yourself. You have to pray, ‘dear Father in heaven do not lead me into temptation but deliver me from the evil one, in Jesus name Holy Spirit help me.’ This prayer is part of carrying your daily cross. We are called to be witness like a lamb in the midst of wolves. In this world we have difficulties, it’s a bad world. I assure, His grace is sufficient for you.

For if you forgive others their sins, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, your Heavenly Father will not forgive you your sins. (Matthew 6: 14,15)

We are being asked to forgive others but God the Father is asking us specifically not just to forgive but to forgive their sins. Forgiving somebody and forgiving their sins are two different things. May be you can forgive someone but to forgive someones sin requires Jesus Christ indwelling in you. This word of God gives us an absolute indication of our ultimate dependance on Father God through Christ Jesus. We have no other choice other than to live like Jesus. Because just as Father in heaven has sent Jesus, Jesus has sent us.

In John chapter 20:21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. Just as the Father has sent me, I also send you.” And after He said this, He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone their sins, they are forgiven; if you do not forgive anyone’s sins, they are not forgiven.”

Once Peter asked Jesus in Matthew chapter 18:21, “Lord how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Jesus said unto him, I say not unto thee, until seven times: but, until seventy times seven. Father God has set us an example of forgiveness. I pray, you will have the mind to forgive the sins of others.

For thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen

Lords prayer teaches us about unfailing love towards our Father in Heaven through Christ Jesus. For those who love Him, His name is Holy. Lords prayer makes us aware of plans of Father God through Christ Jesus. Through Christ Jesus everything in heaven and earth will become one. It teaches us to ask Father God to give Jesus as our daily bread. It teaches us that since my Father in heaven has forgiven me my sins I should also forgive everyone. This prayer gives me the realisation of how weak I am, that makes me pray lead us not into temptation but deliver me from all evil. At the same time this prayer gives me an understanding of our Father in heaven through Christ Jesus who has set me as an example of God’s forgiveness of sin. For thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

PRAYER (Part-1)

The word prayer seems to be a natural activity in our spiritual life. It’s a part of our daily routine where we pour out our daily needs and sorrows before God. We might have learnt it by observing our parents or by observing the practice followed by the church leaders. The question is, is this enough? Is this the way that God wants us to pray? I have seen people wrestling in prayer but it turns out to be a lost battle. People sometimes loose faith because of unanswered prayers. What they are told and what they have received has deceived them. Some turned away from the faith and some feel depressed. This is a serious situation where we need to understand, what prayer really is? And most important how to pray? In the Old Testament we see sacrifices, rituals and other religious practices as part of prayer, we do not see a perfect example of prayer. But the New Testament provides us with the perfect example. The Author, The Finisher and The Perfecter of Faith. The Alpha and the Omega who has come and who is to come, The visible image of the invisible God. All things were created by Him and for Him, Our messiah and Our Yeshua, that is Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is the only person in the Bible who taught us to pray and had a prayerful life. Old Testament introduced us to a God to pray to and in New Testament Jesus Christ introduced us to a Father to pray to. Praying to a Father is entirely different from Praying to God. Even today people struggle to recognise what Jesus Christ has taught, they Love praying to God rather than the Father whom Jesus Christ has given us the access to. Jesus Christ became THE WAY, THE TRUTH and THE LIFE for us to have a complete relationship with our Father in Heaven.

Jesus Christ said “But when you pray, go into your inner room, shut your door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” This is what the New Testament prayer is all about, it is simple to hear but not simple to experience. It requires the most unique relationship with our Father in Heaven that can not be attained through any intellectual wisdom or knowledge or any kind of experiences. Having a relationship with this Father demands us to become a part of Father. No religion can make it happen, no ideologies can make it happen even any isms will fail.

God of Old Testament sent His only begotten Son Yeshua, that is our Lord Jesus Christ in the form of man but not born of man but born of the Spirit of our Father in Heaven to fulfil all His commandments in the old testament and to introduce God as our Father in Heaven for those who are chosen by Father God through Christ Jesus before the foundation of the earth. Today the Spirit of our Father God is enabling us to go through the same process. Let me make it simple, receiving Jesus Christ as your saviour is the only way through which we can become children of Father God. It demands repentance of our flesh, it demands carrying our daily cross and following Christ Jesus through a narrow gate and a crooked path. This is not everyone’s cup of tea. This privilege is given to those who are chosen by Father God through Christ Jesus.

Prayer is between our Father in Heaven and those who are chosen to call God Abba Father through Christ Jesus. Prayer is the link between the chosen and the Father. We are called to imitate Jesus Christ the first born out of death and the first born of the Spirit of Father. Like Jesus Christ we now have the help of the Holy Spirit. Through the Holy Spirit we are part of spiritual flesh and spiritual blood and the body of Jesus Christ the CHURCH. The only begotten Son of Father God, through Christ Jesus we call God of the Old Testament ‘Abba Father’ in the New Testament. And to Him we pray not as God but I call Him my Father in Heaven and I thank Jesus Christ my Lord and saviour for this beautiful transition.

How do we pray to our Father in Heaven?

We the children of Father God need to pray like our Lord Jesus. Jesus Christ was poor in Spirit that shows we also need to be poor in Spirit. Matthew chapter 3:5 says like this, ‘Blessed are the poor in Spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.’ Being poor in Spirit represents our dependance on Father God through Christ Jesus. If we look at the life of Jesus Christ we can see His life is the perfect example of dependance on His Father. The moment when you recognise your complete dependance on Father God, like Jesus, your disposition will change. It’s not about prayer, it’s about everything in you, it’s about you being a new creation. Father will have dominion over your thought process. On the way you will discover you have the mind of Christ. The mind of the new creation. When you have the mind of Christ your prayer is all about Father God. Your spiritual emptiness will be no more. There you will recognise it is not you who pray but the Spirit of God who is in you that prays. You will allow the new creation to grow and you will decrease. A day will come you will experience the fullness of Jesus Christ. Beloved, you are a new creation, not born out of the desire of the flesh but born out of the desire of the Spirit of Father God thus becoming children of God. Allow the new creation to pray. You should understand your greatest weakness and that is, we don’t know how to pray. The Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for, but the Holy Spirit prays for us through groanings that can not be expressed in words. All this happens because Jesus Christ is our intercessor before our Father God.

The Lord’s Prayer (Matthew chapter 6:9-15)

So then, this is how you should pray:

‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.
For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive yours.

Pastor Paul J J

Let your Eye be single

I would like to share a word of God which I was meditating, can you imagine a situation where Jesus Christ is inside your home, he is with you and you are hearing his voice, you are seeing him, you are sensing him and he is so real in your life yet you are troubled.

Are you going through such a situation then this message is exclusively for you. Let me tell you, Jesus was with his disciples, he was resting on the Boat and the sea was violent, Jesus was with them but they lost their peace. They were asking Jesus to save them, they thought they are going to end right now. Still Jesus was with them. On another side when we see another situation that is of Martha, she invited Jesus into her life, into her family and there we can see she was complaining to the Lord. Because she was troubled and she was careful concerning so many things. Jesus was inside her home, Jesus was talking to everybody who was inside her home, she was hearing. Because of her Jesus Christ was inside her home but she was troubled. 

Dear people of God are you a chosen vessel of God! then you and me are not allowed to be troubled with other things, Martha was troubled, disciples were troubled. Dear people I want to remind you another verse from Matthew 6:22 “The light of the body is the eye: If therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” Word of God clearly says, your eye has to be single, your vision has to be single, your thought has to be single, your act has to be single. You cannot serve two masters at one time, what really happening in our life is we are serving two masters at one time, we are serving household master and our heavenly master it’s not the will of God it is not heavenly principal it’s not part of Kingdom of God.

Why you are getting troubled? because your eye is not single, you are not setting your vision on one thing, you are setting your vision on several things. Dear people of God are you troubled? If I ask people they will say so many prayer request, I’ll pray but do you know something you are troubled because your eye is not single, your vision is not single, you are troubled because you are thinking about many things, you are concerned about what to eat? how to be? What to be? When to be? You are troubled about tomorrow. Dear people tomorrow will be taken care by the Lord himself. Jesus Christ lives in you, allow him to look after your life. One thing I want to tell you no matter how troubled you are you are not going to get any solution until and unless your vision is on Jesus. In other words, you have to have a single eye that is what the Bible says. 

The light of the body is eye, therefore thine eye is single so that the whole body shall be full of light. Do you want light in your life? Then your eye has to be single. You have two eyes but during morning if you want to see the Sun, then you should focus your both the eye on Sun. “There is a source for everything, we are concerned about resource but resource will flow from the source.” Jesus Christ is your source, he is your living blood, he is your living bread, he is your alpha, he is your Omega, you are chosen in him so that day will come you will stand in the presence of Father blameless and full of perfection that is not yours, his perfection and the Earth is a training ground for God’s perfection in your life. For having God’s perfection in your life let your eye be single.
