New Path, Road, Doors! Happy New Year 2014!


Who would not want to be the first occupant of a newly built house?
Who would not want to ride a new car home?
Who would not want to be the first to take the newly laid road?
Who would not want to be called the First?

Well, then why do we hesitate when the LORD opens the new door, shows a new place, direct a new path?

We rely on the builders of rich experience that we entrust in their hands, our abode for the rest of our life to have a roof on our head and walls to shield us from all seasons.

We rely on the renown Japanese or German Automobile manufactures to take us to places.

We rely on the highly skilled labors for that smooth and great looking gravel road.

Then, Why not the LORD, GOD Almighty? Jehovah - whose track record is filled with mighty miracles - Who kept his promise to Abraham, Who blessed Jacob, Who opened a new position for Joseph, Who killed a giant with a sling & stone, Who tied the mouths of lions, Who provided food for Elijah thru Ravens, Who came down to earth as vulnerable babe & Who died for our sins!

Isaiah 43:19
Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.


Let us remember the promise and get into this New Year 2014 with much faith and confidence that we have been called to use this new path in wilderness and called to be the first to drink from the rivers in desert.

Praise the LORD! A very happy New Year! 
Revelations 3:8 I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

DETOUR!



Matthew2:1 
Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem,

These three wise men said to have come from the land of Persia, which was hundreds of miles away from Bethlehem.  Non Jewish, but being the believers of the prophecy of  Daniel prophecy these well-read men take this holy mission of meeting the Messiah risking their life. For the undeniable astronomical evidences quoted in Book of Numbers clearly point the time and location of birth of the King of Israel. After making that tiring, risky journey thru mountainous terrain and desert crossing many borders of different lands occupied by Roman they were indeed blessed with the opportunity of meeting, adoring and paying respect to the King of kings.  Then there was a change of plan.


12 Then, being divinely warned in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed for their own country another way.

Sometimes the LORD would intervene, offering a change of plan in our spiritual journey, suggesting a new way, a Detour. Those wisemen are truly wise to heed to the LORD’s warning and submit to the Detour. The Bible says they reached their own country without any issues.

Today or in this coming New Year we might be presented with a Detour by the LORD, Let us put our reasoning ability aside and trust HIS faithfulness in our journey to home. For HIS plans and path are best to stick to!

Praise the LORD!

Promises for USA & Interceding Prayer Partners!


Christmas Message 2013 - By Pastor.John Prabaharan


In a recent book by Colin Humphreys, The Star of Bethlehem discusses the evidence of Star of Bethlehem as a comet which was visible in 5 BC, and described in ancient Chinese astronomical records. A comet uniquely fits the description in Matthew of a star which newly appeared, which traveled slowly through the sky against the star background and which 'stood over' Bethlehem. 

Following are the direct quotes from the book:
“ The Chinese kept careful astronomical records of visible comets, novae etc, and used different terms to describe them.19 A tailed comet was called a sui-hsing, meaning a broom star, the 'broom' referring to the tail of the comet (traditionally the Chinese character read as sui has been read as hui, but sui is probably more correct, M. Loewe, private communication). A comet without a tail is called a po-hsing, and a nova is called a k'o-hsing, meaning guest-star. A clear distinction is not always made between novae and comets without a tail. Ho Peng-Yoke20 lists and translates ancient Chinese records of comets and novae. Those appearing within the period 20 BC to AD 10 are all described as comets. These objects are the only recorded astronomical phenomena appearing near the birth of Christ which satisfy the description in Matthew's gospel of a star that moved through the sky and that 'stood over' a place.”
“The description of this in the Chinese Han shu, the official history of the former Han dynasty (206 BC-AD 9), on which Ho Peng-Yoke depends, is as follows:
    'Second year of the Chien-p'ing reign period, second month (5 BC, March 9-April 6), a suibsing appeared at Ch'ien-niu 
    for over 70 days.'

The passage in the Han shu also includes what is termed a traditional comment relating to this 5 BC comet which indicates that this comet was regarded as being of particular significance”
As the passage from book says the Significance of this star is pretty unique
1. It moves at the speeds of 30 miles/hr in the sky which is similar to the speed of the camel on the desert
2. It will move during the night and would stop moving in the day time. Again, would start moving from the exact place it stopped.
3. Last but not the least, it was moving east to west which is against the natural phenomena. All the stars move from west to east.

What the LORD let us infer from this appearance of star and by his birth as vulnerable child in Manger is
1. He comes to our likeness. 
2. He comes in our form.
3. He comes as a son of simple carpenter
4. He comes in our speed. He is not moving at his speed, but our speed to keep up with us.
Because He knows our troubles, our afflictions, our limitations, our struggles and our problems!

What a wonderful and loving GOD we serve! Come let us pray and rejoice the birth of our LORD, Christ Jesus!

HOW can he die for us?

Have you ever wondered how Jesus Christ, the messiah died 2000 yrs ago for the sin you have committed now or the sins to be committed by some of your brothers/sisters in future?

Well, I have. As I couldn’t comprehend I decided to focus on the parts of GOD’s word, that I can understand and I can assimilate.

I guess, I did the right thing. As I stayed on course, it dawned on me like a spring morning!
JESUS CHRIST, the Messiah is THE SON of GOD himself. And he died for our sins. 

And who is GOD? The GOD exalted by David in Psalms, the GOD exclaimed by Prophets, the GOD who explained himself as “I am Who I am” to Moses? Who is HE? & What is GOD?

GOD is Omnipresent.
GOD is Omniscient.
GOD is Omnipotent.
GOD who existed, existing and will be existing.
GOD who knows everything.
GOD who is Al mighty.
GOD is timeless. HE is infinite. HE is everything.

 It all makes sense. It’s simple to put it all together now.  So it is evident that only the son of such great GOD with that attributes can be made as a sacrifice for the sins of the human race. No man or Animal can do that. Such sacrifices can be timeboxed and will be limited.

It is logical that Son of GOD has to be sacrificed. And that exactly happened as the darling of heaven walked on the rubbles to climb a tree and to die for every one of us. (John 3:16)

HE died for us even when were sinners.(Romans 5:8)

At this season of giving, let us remember the gift from heaven, the manna from GOD, Jesus and rejoice in him. Let HIS sacrifice be made worthy. Let HIS sacrifice serve the purpose in our life. Let us be thankful for HIS priceless blood. Let us give praise for HIS forgiveness.

Our GOD is the most loving and merciful father, didnt he send his precious son for us!

The Parable of the “actual” Lost son


Luke  15:22-32
 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.


“Now his older son was in the field. And as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing. So he called one of the servants and asked what these things meant. And he said to him, ‘Your brother has come, and because he has received him safe and sound, your father has killed the fatted calf.’
“But he was angry and would not go in. Therefore his father came out and pleaded with him. So he answered and said to his father, ‘Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might make merry with my friends.  But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.’ “And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.  It was right that we should make merry and be glad, for your brother was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found.’”

We have read, studied and quoted the parable of the lost son in many different angles. I am sure just like many, you would have applied your situations of the lost son, marveled at mercy and grace of the loving father. May be, you also read about the love of the waiting father. His faith and prayers just like one of the post by Sis.Yamini.

Here is another angle of this parable to ponder. This angle would also name the parable as “Parable of the Lost Son” except the lost son is the not the one who returned but about the son who lived with the father in the same house.

Though the focus of the parable is on the youngest son, the ending note of the parable leaves the reader of the Bible or the listener with questions on the older son.

Let us see the character of Older son:
1.    He was obedient unlike the youngest son

2.    He did not squander the wealth in evil ways

3.    He did not ask his share of wealth when his brother got his portions from the father.

4.    He worked hard in the father’s fields from dawn to dusk.

5.    He kept the father’s respect of the house

However, Luke 15:25 reflects something more about
1.    He was not paying attention or not sensitive to the Father’s grief over his youngest son.

2.    Or Even if he had noticed, he did not partake in his Father’s grief or try to console/comfort his father in grief.

We knew this because; he was stunned by the feast given by his Father to his youngest. This speaks his heart.
·       His heart is unforgiving. He lists the sins of the younger son.

·       He expects his father should not do things without his consent.

·       His heart is filled with anger for his Father. So he inquires about the celebration to a servant and not to his father.

·       He decides not to attend the festivity which is humiliating of his father in front of the guests.

·       He could have expressed his anger in private, but he stands outside to register his contempt known to the people around and also to his brother.

·       When his father talks to him he does not address him “Father”. He goes into the discussion directly, which shows his disrespectful.

·       He questions his father’s judgment.

Yet, what do you see as the response of the father
1.    He comes out of the feast to convince the older son. Leaving the feast would have got the gathered guest’s attention. Yet, the father does that for he wants his older son to be part of the celebration

2.    He doesn’t talk or argue or justify. He PLEADS

3.    He affectionately calls him “Son”. 

4.    He explains the privilege and rights that the Older son already possess. The father reminds of the older son’s inheritance.

5.    The passage clearly tells that the Father is deeply hurt by the older son’s action.

Just like that there are so many lost sheeps reaching pen. There are so many lost souls getting saved and brought back to the LORD’s fort. But his Israel, the holy nation, the body of Christ had not inherited the heart of the father in tending and rearing the “found” sheeps. We are like Pharisees or the people of the Old Testament with hearts hardened by the laws and our own righteousness. We are in the mansion, yet we rebuke the master of the house by the actions and thoughts. We are close yet so far. We do the father’s work but without understanding the insight of the end result.

In this parable, you will realize that being the younger son is much better than the older son. 

Matthew 20:14 -16
Take what is yours and go your way. I wish to give to this last man the same as to you. Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with my own things? Or is your eye evil because I am good?’  So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few chosen.

It is a warning parable to us to always gauge ourselves as we grow in the faith. It is not just the Al Mighty’s grace and power we inherit. We should constantly challenge ourselves to imitate the heart of the father to extend the same grace and mercy to others. That is the true inheritance!

HE will do that for me!


When the darkness drape in
When my eyes are misty
When my heart beats heavy
When my breath is not easy
I think of my savior
The King of Kings
Who died for me on the cross….
If HE can do that for me
He is sure to let me out of this mess!

And, You can be a Mary
If you too try!
Come let us Magnify
His name we glorify!
For you and I are Mary
We house HIS divinity!

Thanks Giving Day, Every Day!


What does the Bible say about Thanks Giving? Is it enough to thank GOD in our prayers & in his presence? Does it simply say to give thanks with lips? Prayer & Songs?
Just remembering to thank GOD in prayer make us like Pharisees who are blindly indulged in the rituals so much, that they have forgotten about the true essence of the GOD Almighty. Didnt they detest Christ for his love & mercy for people of the margins of then world.
Thanking GOD is not an exercise. It is a walk of life (in Christ). Let us pray to the LORD for his holy spirit to help us understand the upcoming message and lead us into HIS light of truth.

Salvation

Thank GOD that we are ALIVE. Yes, Every moment we are alive is HIS pure mercy and grace.
I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus.  For in him you have been enriched in every way--in all your speaking and in all your knowledge-

A Standing Witness for Christ

Thank GOD by standing as a witness giving testimonies.
In that day you will say: "Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted.


Being Generous

Thank GOD by being generous to the less fortunate, by tithing, by supporting charities & missionaries, by supporting your Church, by supporting GOD’s kingdom.
You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.  This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.

Acceptance

Thank GOD by accepting that our GOD is a GOOD GOD giving us perfect gifts. Thank GOD by not rejecting or complaining of things, people and situations.
For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.

Let the WALK do the TALK

Thank GOD in everything you do and say, i.e. alignment of your personal, professional, social and spiritual life with the WORD of GOD.
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Thank GOD for his directions & righteousness.

I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.

Enduring Love

Why thank GOD in all our circumstances for he is mother like GOD, His love for us endures forever.
Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

 "Give thanks to the LORD Almighty, for the LORD is good; his love endures forever." For I will restore the fortunes of the land as they were before,' says the LORD.

Thanks Giving Day, Every Day

Thank GOD always. Do not set aside a specific time, specific occasions, are only during the moments of victories. Thank GOD in all our circumstances. Remember Romans 8:28
give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

HE is the KING, GOD Almighty, Christ the Savior!

Thank GOD because HE is the KING. He is our father. He is our protector. He is our provider. He is our peace, joy & hope!
Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.  For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods.

As Thanks Giving to the LORD is mainly practiced through the worship songs and prayers, we have to remember that Thanks giving is not just a lip service but should be loudly resonant in our daily walks & talks (James 1:22). Most importantly we should recognize what is not thanks giving to the LORD and should be watchful of it like Cribbing, Bragging, Bitterness, Greedy, Self reliance, Pride, Depression, Prolonged grieving etc.

In this Thanks Giving Day, let us THANK GOD for ALL the things, ALL the trials, ALL the Happiness, ALL the peace & for ALL HIS Love,…Calvary Resurrecting Love! Amen!

Waiting for your WORD, Lord!


Facing the Giants

1 Sam 17: 34 – 37 But David said to Saul, “Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it. Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God. The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.”
David did not have any fear to face the giant, because he was reminded of God’s faithfulness in the past. The same God who rescued him from the lion and the bear would rescue him from Goliath too.
In our life we tremble at the giants, because we forget God’s faithfulness in the past. We tend to forget all the victories he has won for us, all the valleys he has brought us through, the mountain tops he has climbed with us, the Jordan experiences, the red sea miracles, the wilderness road where he carried us, the financial breakthroughs and the list goes on.
As we enter this season of Thanks Giving, let us try to keep a Thanks Giving journal giving Him the utmost praise for all He has done for us in 2013 and years before. This will enable us to face the giants in our life with confidence as we know our God is the same yesterday, today and forever!
For God’s children, the best is yet to come. So rejoice dear child of God as you await the dawn of 2014.

HE is in us!


Gideon – Mighty Warrior

Judges 6:14  The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?”

Many of us get encouraged from the part of the above verse “Go in the strength you have”. But the key phrase is “Am I not sending you?” It is not about us in the first place, and it is all about God. It is about who is sending us. In your eyes, like Gideon you may look weak and frail, but in god’s eyes you are a mighty warrior for Him. That is all it matters. Not what you think about yourself or what others think about you matters least bit!

Judges 7:2 The Lord said to Gideon, “You have too many men. I cannot deliver Midian into their hands, or Israel would boast against me, ‘My own strength has saved me’.

Sometimes, God intentionally strips people from our life, so He gets the glory. Our fallen nature will tend to boast and He knows it very well. God is not interested in numbers. He is only seeking your obedience. All you have to do is, take the first step in faith. He then, miraculously multiplies the little faith you have. He miraculously multiplies the little strength you have. He miraculously multiplies the little money you have and the list goes on and on.

Judges 7:20, 21  The three companies blew the trumpets and smashed the jars. Grasping the torches in their left hands and holding in their right hands the trumpets they were to blow, they shouted, “A sword for the Lord and for Gideon! While each man held his position around the camp, all the Midianites ran, crying out as they fled.

All Gideon needed was a pot, a torch and a trumpet. He did not need a spear, a sword, a chariot. When he and the 300 men praised God, He fought the battle for them and sent confusion into the enemy’s camp. Sometimes all we need is praise and worship. We can either whine or worship. Worship is a choice we make. We do not need clever words to manipulate people or to win arguments. We do not need great wealth to be happy and peaceful. All we need is a content heart. When the pot and torch can do the job, why need a sword? Similarly when worship can do the job, why wrestle against flesh and blood. Fight your battles on your knees with your hands lifted high and that is the only foolproof way!

“Every time you worship God something happens in the spirit realm to break the power of evil. That is because He inhabits your praises, and this means you are in His presence”. - Stormie Omartian.


Additional verses to ponder:                   
 “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:7- 9
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. 1 Cor 1 27-29

Friend of God

Exo 20:19 They said to Moses, “Speak to us yourself and we will listen. But do not have God speak to us or we will die.”
The Israelites did not want God to speak to them directly. They wanted God to speak to Moses and they will hear from Moses and not from God directly.
How many times, we see ourselves in the same situation as the Israelites on this side of the cross. We want to hear only from our pastor, our mentor and not from God directly. Most Christians would rather ask friends for occasional advice than read God’s Word daily to understand what God desires and expects. But Jesus wants to talk to us directly. We do not need a mediator as Jesus Christ is our High Priest and our mediator. We can approach the mercy seat with confidence.
Hebrews 4: 15-16 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Like the Israelites we just want a set of rules to follow. But Jesus paid a huge price, to have a love based relationship with us and not a rule based one. We cannot do anything more for him to love us more not do anything else that will reduce his love for us in anyway. He has paid the ultimate price. He has called us His friend. What else do we need?
John 15:15 I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
Don’t we share everything with our best friend? We do not need a mediator. Same with our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the creator of the heaven and earth, but yes he is your friend too. He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.
Proverbs 18:24 But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Who Is Like YOU!

Are we blaming the GOD for our problems, our trials, our afflictions?
In our ignorance we have already crucified Christ Jesus. Let us not do that again.

I might have enraged many believers by those first 2 statements. You will agree with me if you take a closer look at the word of GOD. I pray at this moment for Holy Spirit to lead us through this understanding and open our eyes.



GOOD GOD
First we should know, acknowledge and understand with all our heart and mind that we serve a GOOD GOD. A GOD who was gracious to
·         A Doubter  - Adam, Abraham
·         A Mocker - Sarah
·         A Disobedient – Moses, Jonah
·         A Lady with sinful past - Rahab
·         A Deceiver - Jacob
·         A Lady from idolatry – Ruth
·         & to many more

Have we had that chance of power and authority over these people, we for sure would not have shown any mercy on them. Hallelujah! Thank GOD we have a GOD of everlasting love and mercies. (Psalm 136)
To call him the reason for our problems is a blasphemy or sin. It is like accusing someone for something they are responsible for. Dear Friends, we all don’t want to do that.


PROTECTOR
The LORD who created us is our protector as well. He is our secure comfort and rock like the Psalmist call out in Psalm 27, 121, 124, 130

But are we letting him to protect us, to secure us? GOD created a beautiful and lovely place called Garden of Eden. Didn’t we choose to be disobedient? Didn’t we choose to walk out in our own understanding?
We are like the adolescent teenagers. We want our space. We want to control our life. When things go bad, we complain. Like any teenagers do. It is all my parents fault. Do you know the most uttered sentence from a teenager “My Life Sucks” “I wish I am not your kid” “I wish I am born in some other family” “You are a horrible mom/dad” “You don’t understand” “You are mean”  “You ruined my life!”

Our prayer life can be hindered by the above such thoughts of various degree.  Someone who is at this highest point back slide and fall into the snare.

May be your situation is different. There is a particular illness in you or in your family you are dealing with.  You would say, I did not do anything to undergo this pain. Why would LORD do this?
Let me tell you my dear friend in Christ, GOD did not cause that. He has allowed this to show the fallen angel how deeply his creations love and rely on him. (Book Of Job) The moment we blame GOD and sulk in depression, we give glory to the sickness. We let it take control of our life . It is easy to feel depressed. It is easy to feel tired. But IT IS hard to believe in Al mighty GOD for a contrite heart.  Isaiah 57:15 GOD dwells in Contrite and “Humble” heart.

Al Mighty means EL SHADDAI which translates into MOTHER LIKE GOD. Yes, we serve a Mother Like GOD. (Num 11:21, Isa 66:12-13) It is so hard for our kids to listen to us when they have their favorite show running on TV. Then we do the best to get their attention. Guess what, we inherited that from our Heavenly father/mother JEHOVAH. We are distracted by the shiny lights of worldly desires, the schemes of devil, or Sickness. But, Once we give Our Father the attention, we will see things change for better, will witness miracles unfold in our life. Well, I have the bestselling book of universe to support this statement.

GIVER - Jehovah Jireh!
LORD of the hosts gives only Perfect gifts. James 1:17
Can you list out the blessings on your life? We will know that we are immensely blessed than many in this world. Just a point to ponder -  If we are able to read this message and not hiding in a container to get transported illegally to another nation or resting in a dungeon after a weary day of asking alms on the roads, hiding in a hole from bomb shells. Know that, we are surely had been blessed. By saying this, I am not saying that we should be content with our current blessing and should not ask the LORD to fix the problems. But before asking we should know the LORD loves us and he is GOOD. We can’t approach him with a complaining heart.

Remember the parable, Prodigal son. He believed that his Father loves him. He believed he will accept him into HIS household as his servant (Well, that was his expectation. While HIS father gave back his position as HIS heir is the interesting twist of the parable). He walked back to his home not to fight with his father asking Why HE allowed such thing to happen or Fight for HIS rights one more time. Sadly most of us do that. We go back to our Father and ask him in pride “You know Daddy. I am your Son/daughter. I lost everything. I know you have a lot. Take me in. Give me my share. Set things alright for me. This time. I guess, I will manage well”

Ask yourself if we have any of that quality hidden in our prayers to HIM.

PRAISE
Instead, if we just open like a flower and look to the heaven with utmost honor and praise. With awe and humble heart and proclaim “Oh! Jehovah, My Father! O King of Kings who is Mother Like, This is your Son/Daughter coming to you. PLEASE forgive me and wash me in the blood of Jesus Christ. Grant my request. You are the only one worthy to be praised. In Jesus name! Amen!”

Once we make that prayer, you will see the doors of Heaven open and see the blessings gushing down your valleys. You will witness the dawn breaking with Sun of Righteousness rise and shining for your meadows green, flowers of your garden snooping down unable to hold the flowing honey, busy bees buzzing around declaring the abundance, prosperity, health and wealth you have inherited from the LORD, our GOD Christ Jesus! Oh! What a wonderful sight! Can you picture that? That’s our inheritance.
With grateful heart and praise we can get our situation changed!

Bottom line - Know that any negative thing in our life a situation, a sickness is from enemy not from GOD. When we call to GOD, the LORD listens to our cry. Whatever had been our past doesn't matter the moment we turn and focus on the LORD, the JESUS CHRIST, Our LIGHT. For the Light will shine on our face, revealing the Path to Life!

May GOD Bless you abundantly!

Unfold In Me! - A simpleton's poem for the LORD




Oh! Lord! I wonder,  like I call out your marvelous creations in one single word - "Universe", can I also find one to define you?


Oh! Dear LORD! the Mightiest of the mightiest, what language would be skillful enough to tell the breadth and length of your mercies I endure

 
Oh! How I can explain the depths you went down to pick me up, when I willfully in flesh took the path of destruction.

Or How can I explain that I let my LORD, the holiest of holy to walk thru that path of filth to find and pick me up.


The GOD of holy who came down to the dusty roads of Jerusalem, walked with this dust to bring HIS beauty


Great, Mighty, Wonderful, Magnificent, Amazing, Awesome, Incredible, Marvelous, Stupendous does any of the adjectives justify your glory, Oh LORD!


Oh! LORD, this body I defiled for pleasure with all my six senses I submit at your feet as sacrifice.

Oh! Father! A broken soul, A contrite heart,..A hopeless spirit  is what I can offer, while I wasted away my goodness like the Prodigal son in past.

I come with what I have, remnants of the pain of pleasures widely spent, products of the sins I possess. What use I will be of to you, Father!

I maimed & mutilated myself in ignorance and in seek of worldly pleasure and approval.

But Oh! Dear LORD, how I can explain the joy of my heart with your reply,..." Didn't I make the first man Adam from the Dust. You are more than dust for me to work with. My work in you is just stalled. It is not Over"

Oh! Father of everlasting mercies, thanks for sending your Son as my Bride groom.
