Why are you so disheartened?

Dear friends in Jesus Christ,

Greetings, I know that all of you, who are reading this, have your own God given missions, and to complete them, ministries. 

I thank you for accepting Him and thank God, for glorifying you with such gifts, that you can support His missions, and fulfill His Cause whatever He has given you. 

Now the most important part is, I know you have faced rejections, and maybe most of them were rude to you, when you tried to show them God.

I know you are broken hearted, and maybe God is talking to you through this message, and he is telling you this message. 

Now I must tell you before I can go any further, that in real life, I try to minister faith in the choir where God has appointed me to sing.

These are kids, most of them are smaller to me, I have seen them rise, I have seen them fall, I have seen that God’s messages are at work on them. Some miracles too. But it just feels bad right, when those whom you care about the most, turns their back on you, and tell you that, ” Don’t you have any other Jobs” Go Find one. Etc.

However, this happened today only, and I was bit sad about it, I don’t know why, and I was thinking about it over and over again, and I was worrying, and being upset.

I with my human knowledge could not understand that either one can fully believe in God, or they do not believe in Him at all. I mean how can one be in between. I mean when you love a person, you don’t love them truly if you are keeping secrets from him, or not letting him or her inside your world, again you cannot say I do not love them, when you have allowed them, inside?

What I’m trying to say is a quote from a movie I watched sometime ago called War Room 

People drink their coffee hot or cold. Nobody likes it lukewarm. Not even the Lord.

But the Lord made me understood that, this is not for me or you judge, that whom have been given to minister, we just follow those messages of God, which by the power of the Holy Spirit, God has made us to conceive in us, to nurture them as God wills and to tell them it to those who need them most, as shown by God, and God alone. Remember as Apostles our duty is to help them, to show the way to the cross, not to try and change their heart, for it is God who can actually change them, not we, we can only pray for them.

You are an Apostle 

However, so when I was sad and upset and was browsing the web, aimlessly, Word of God came into my mind, and touched those areas which were burning with the fire that my close one’s has put on me, and gave me peace, and made my heart filled with love, unity and made me of Christ again, and I thank the Lord for it.

Here are the messages that I will share with you too. These are the messages which Jesus Christ our Lord, used, when He spoke to His Apostles, before he was slaughter like a Lamb, for our transgressions.

Our Lord, has fore-casted that this would happen, 

John 16:2 “They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God.

Luke 21:12  But before all this, they will seize you and persecute you. They will hand you over to synagogues and put you in prison, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name.” 

He motivates us now as He motivated them, 

Revelation 2:10 Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor’s crown.

And you know why you are facing Rejection right now? Our Lord has said this too 

John 15:21 But they will treat you like this on account of My name, because they do not know the One who sent Me.

So now I have the answer to that fellow member of the Choir, who has asked me if I can get a Job or something, other than ministering them, that THIS IS MY JOB, ministering Christ to you and others whom God has shown me and friend you know, who gave me this job? 

He is known by many names, but I call him my Majesty. He is the Greatest of the Great He is my Father Almighty. 

And on this Father’s day I tell you friends, that when we do not honor our Father in Heaven in our lives, and do what he tells us to do, I can tell you that we haven’t surrendered ourselves to God completely.

To surrender totally means to give up one’s self to the Lord, one cannot hold back anything, and expect miracles to shower up in your life. 

For God is ready to help you, but are you?

What I mean to say is Are you ready to take that help friends? 

Have you opened your hearts to the spirit?

I know most of you have, many are trying, to be honest, we all are trying, no one is perfect Except God.

So this message is for you my friend, God wants to remind you that, that you are doing good, and keep on doing good, keep on being nice to people around you. Keep on bowing down, before them, because you are not bowing down before them, you are bowing down before their pride, before their ego, and trust me, you are just changing the benchmark of their sense of Pride and Ego, it is God through you, making their Ego and Pride erode away. Remember Humility and Love is more powerful effect than Un-forgiveness and Hatred for Haterd can only kill(Relationship), steal(Joy) and destroy(Peace), Love on the other hand can Build(Relationship), Protect(joy), and Create(Peace).

If you want your sheep to follow the Good Shepard, then try to be like the Good Shepard.

I mean look at Jesus, no body believe him that He was the Son of God, then how on earth do you expect that people will believe you and me when we proclaim His words to them?

I mean just look at Jesus Christ and Christianity, and the World. 

Had people believed in God from then on, then they did not have murdered Jesus Christ, Had people put on God before any other thing, then we could have been still in The Garden of Eden playing without sin, for God created us out of his glory, and God is sinless, we being his creation were sinless too.. 

But we weak, we have sinned then, we are sinning still now, but God looks at our sins, and chooses forgive us, when we ask of it, and when we do not.

Christ in Our Place

For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

And trust me friends, if we want God’s mission, in our ministry, which He has given us to succeed we have to forgive them (For refusing us, and for refusing God), and ask for their forgiveness (When we have became angry over them and choose not to preach to them), and love them, more than they deserve, just like Christ has loved us.

You know my dear friends, God is love, he never forces, and being His Saints, Being His Messengers, we just can’t force people, because that does not come from God, there is only way that we can preach God, to them and that is through love and love alone. 

It is Love which actually change one’s heart and that is Godly love, and God is Love, so it is God who actually changes someone’s heart. And change them, remake them, given a new birth, a birth in Jesus Christ. 

Remember today’s reading friend, May this strengthen you in your ministry 

Reading 2, Galatians 3:26-29

26 for all of you are the children of God, through faith, in Christ Jesus,

27 since every one of you that has been baptized has been clothed in Christ.

28 There can be neither Jew nor Greek, there can be neither slave nor freeman, there can be neither male nor female — for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

29 And simply by being Christ’s, you are that progeny of Abraham, the heirs named in the promise.

Friends I believe we all are Work In Progress, that is why we fail to recognize and accept Jesus In our lives Now how can we become angry on them for rejecting God, when God does not? He’s working behind all around the clock, and He knows that His Kingdom will be established. We also have to play our part on it with Love Mercy and Unity too. So I would leave you all my brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, with a prayer and some amazing songs.

Come let us pray.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Messiah who was promised, lead us Lord, in your ways, teach us, make us new, every single moment of our lives Lord, lead us, help us to follow you, Lord, may those whom you have given us, can see you in us. 

Help us that we can be your symbol, your signet ring, your love that we can show it to them whom you have given us to preach, Lord help us to perform your Holy Will even when we face rejection, or worse persecution.

Help us Lord, to pray to you, as your spirit teaches us, Help us that we can be a worthy Son like you, of Our Heavenly Father. We pray this prayer in the glorious name Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen Hallelujah 

Always remember friend who you are, for it is God who has appointed as one of

Of Today, What can men do to you.

Wait if you are still upset, hear these You will have peace I’m assured of it.

God Bless you all
Hallelujah
Amen

What is the greatest weapon that we have?

My dear brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, 

I thank you father for letting me write this letter to honor your holy name, so that your glory can come on earth. And I ask you father that you lead me, that I can lead your people to you, by living what I preach in your holy name. Hallelujah 

In the beginning I must tell you that whoever is in Jesus can say to the whole world, 

That Neither I am afraid of dying, not of death, that neither it matters if I live or I die, for if I live I live for Jesus, and I die, I die in the name of Jesus, for I do not live in me, it is Christ, the risen Christ, who lives in me, for though I was sinful, and yet I am, that though I should have been stoned to death, for my sins, as said in the mosaic laws, yet my Jesus My savior took the punishment of my sins, and have died in agony and pain on that cross.

 

But our all powerful father, who is our creator, who is so powerful that he raised him up from death, and that through him, we who were sinners, who though were living but were dead, who were blind, my friend our eyes are opened and now we are alive in Jesus Christ.

So my dear friends, I am now free, sins though come and go, and try to tempt me, yet they have no dominion over me. For If I choose to follow Jesus I will be free from all other things.

In this letter I must tell you that our live in a war, a constant battle between life, and death. No I’m not telling about physical death only, I’m saying that the battle is in between choosing to live life in spirit, or choosing to live life in flesh. For the desires of the flesh are contrary to the desires of the spirit. 

And the gift of living in spirit is eternal life, peace, love, and mercy, and on the contrary living in flesh means suffering, in pain, in agony, disease etc.

So we have free will to do what we choose, for both have its own strengths and weakness. For we can choose only one and not two either we can put God first and then ourselves, or ourselves first then God.

But beware that when we put ourselves first, we miss out the true enemy that is behind all death and sin, that is Satan.

To you all who are reading this, my friend in the name of Jesus I tell you that you are all warriors, for Christ is your power, your weapon is love, your defense is love, and your offence is love. And I tell you in full authority in the name of Jesus Christ that love has the power to conquer all. 

15717634792_2e57bf3eae_b (2)

Once we have surrendered ourselves to God, we have to make a prayer plan, a strategy, that by which we can defeat that one true enemy.

I must tell you that we only have authority over ourselves and our lives, so we can only choose to be righteous in the eyes of God. 

And I tell you that power will let you know, that we do not have to do the heavy lifting, it is God who will do that, we only have to tell him, approach him in the right manner. 

the-gospel

And in this post that is what I will show you friend. I am not asking you to pray for hours, I am just asking you to pray from your heart. 

And offer your sins and everything to Jesus; never be disheartened, For Jesus is the answer to everything.

Friend, when you feel dishearten just look at the crucifix. 

<img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-2727" src="https://ofhisgloryblog.files.wordpress.com/2016/05/jesus-christ-on-the-cross-the-passion-hd-wallpaper.jpg&quot; alt="Jesus-Christ-On-The-Cross-The-Passion-HD-Wallpaper" width="729" height="500"

 

 

See how much of our pain and suffering that we have given to him, that he had to die for us but that is not the end of it, For God says, No matter how much sinful you are, that death, which was the punishment for your sins, has been conquered, through my son Jesus Christ, by the glory of mine, in the power of the Holy Spirit. And that Christ has risen, and that he is living in us, within us, with us. And that we are his church, we all of us, who believe in him whose foundation is Jesus Christ.

Friends this is how one should pray

Lord I need you, I need you lord, right now, at this very moment, I know I have not prayed as I should have, I know I have not followed you like I should, but I need you right now, lord I have been so sinful in the past, and I am still so sinful, but I do not want to lose my life, Lord forgive me, forgive me Lord. I am not as a judge as you are, so I’m asking you to forgive me in the judgments that I have done in my mortal flesh, but I’m also asking you Lord please, please don’t let Satan take over me, please take over me Lord.

Take my heart, and take all my sins, help me to love me again and help me to love others and you Lord above everyone else again. Lord I’m asking you please to help me, stand in the way of Satan and destroy all the temptations and urges and confusions and delusions that he has placed on my way.

Lord you know the desires of my heart, and I know that you will bear me up in your arms and your fulfill them before even I can speak to you, for you alone are so powerful and you alone are so grateful, and you alone lord are my refuge and my strength.

In you Lord I am complete Lord. You are all that I need Lord. Take me Lord; fill me Lord, with you Holy Spirit, and Lord help me that in you I may live. Hallelujah

 There is no magic in the location where you pray, but God says that you must go to your inner room, and pray in silence, so that the lord may reward you, it is said so because in the inner room there you will be alone with the lord only, and there won’t be any earthy distractions, my friends, the lord is our god and he will hold us up in his arms, and he has already born all the sins that we have done, we are doing or we will still do, I believe that the price of our salvation has already been paid at the cross. 

So my dear friends, this is greatest weapon that God has just given you in the name of Jesus Christ, against sins, and against every other evil spirits. Now we have complete authority and power over them. 

So now friends, let us walk in the way which Jesus Christ has proclaimed, and has lived. 

Amen 

Hallelujah 

God Bless you all.

How to fight Sin & Win? Part 1

Heavenly father, I thank you today for the gift of your knowledge that you have enriched me with, help me father that I can share it to the world, Hallelujah. 
Truly I tell you friends, we are God’s co-worker and thus we at all times must be awake, as the snake, the dragon has risen against us, for we are chosen by God, that is what Jesus told us in the last message, while he was praying to father.
Its snares and its temptations and its unending try to have dominion over us, has increased.

And so that you and I, can Win over Sin today, the Lord has guided me and has given me certain words that I want to share with you.

If you think the words have no power, then I might remind you that the universe was created by the Word of God only.

  • Now let me first define what is a Sin?
“Everything that does not come from faith is sin” (Romans 14:23).
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, you must do it all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31).
Now you can see that everything we do that does not bring glory to God is a sin.
So there are two big terms out there “Faith” and “Glory to God” and before I can proceed any further, I believe that I have a duty to explain them to you, as they were explained to me.
  • What is faith?
“Now faith is the confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” (Hebrews 11:1)
I have told you already how one can have faith, but in case you have forgotten let me remind you that; it is attained through, obedience, love and experience. If you do not experience Christ, or if you do not have love in your heart, or if you do not obey God the father, then my friend, you cannot have faith.
  • Next, one of you may ask, why should we glorify God?
Now to answer this question, I can show you a chapter from the book of Revelation which tells us why we should.
The Scroll and the Lamb
5 Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” 3 But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. 4 I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. 5 Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
6 Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. 7 He went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne. 8 And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people. 9 And they sang a new song, saying:
“You are worthy to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
because you were slain,
and with your blood you purchased for God
persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.
10 You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God,
and they will reign on the earth.”
11 Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. 12 In a loud voice they were saying:
“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!”
13 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying:
“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!”
14 The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.
  • So now you know why we should glorify him but do you know how?
Scripture says a lot many ways how we can worship him
Through Fellowship:
“11 The Lord would speak to Moses face to face, as one speaks to a friend. Then Moses would return to the camp, but his young aide Joshua son of Nun did not leave the tent.” (Exodus 33:11).
“When Moses came down from Mount Sinai with the two tablets of the covenant law in his hands, he was not aware that his face was radiant because he had spoken with the Lord. 30 When Aaron and all the Israelites saw Moses, his face was radiant, and they were afraid to come near him. 31 But Moses called to them; so Aaron and all the leaders of the community came back to him, and he spoke to them. 32 Afterward all the Israelites came near him, and he gave them all the commands the Lord had given him on Mount Sinai.” (Exodus 34:29).
Through Worship:
“and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled the temple of God.” (II Chronicles 5:14).
“You, who fear the Lord, praise him! All you descendants of Jacob, honor him! Revere him, all you descendants of Israel!” (Psalm 22:23).
“All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord; they will bring glory to your name.” (Psalm 86:9).
Through Lordship:
“and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:11).
Through Praise:
“Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me, and to the blameless I will show my salvation.” (Psalm 50:23).
“I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.” (Psalm 86:12).
Through Thanksgiving:
“All of this is for your benefit. And as God’s grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving, and God will receive more and more glory.” (II Corinthians 4:15).
(Jesus Heals Ten Men with Leprosy) “One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice.” (Luke 17:15).
Through Righteousness:
“filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God” (Philippians 1:11).
Through Humility:
“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” (Galatians 6:14).
“Listen and give heed, do not be haughty, For the Lord has spoken.16 Give glory to the Lord your God, Before He brings darkness and before your feet stumble, on the dusky mountains, And while you are hoping for light. He makes it into deep darkness, And turns it into gloom.” (Jeremiah 13:15-16).
Through claiming the promises of God:
“For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.” (II Corinthians 1:20).
“Yet he (Abraham) did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God,” (Romans 4:20).
Through receiving one another:
“Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.” (Romans 15:7).
Through suffering as a believer:
“However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.” (I Peter 4:16).
Through faithfulness unto death:
“Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, “Follow me!” (John 21:19).
“But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God” (Acts 7:55).
“They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” (Revelation 12:11).
Through Receiving Healing:
“When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death. No, it is for God’s glory so that God’s Son may be glorified through it.” (John 11:4).
“He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.” (John 16:14).
Through calling upon the Lord, for help:
“Help us, God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name’s sake.” (Psalm 79:9).
“Call out to me when trouble comes. I will save you. And you will honor me.” (Psalm 50:15).
Through the witness of good works:
“in the same way, let your light shine so others can see it. Then they will see the good things you do. And they will bring glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16).
“People who don’t believe might say you are doing wrong. But lead good lives among them. Then they will see your good deeds. And they will give glory to God on the day he comes to judge” (I Peter 2:12).
Through physical discipline:
“Christ has paid the price for you. So use your bodies in a way that honors God. (I Corinthians 6:20).
“Brothers and sisters, God has shown you his mercy. So I am asking you to offer up your bodies to him while you are still alive. Your bodies are a holy sacrifice that is pleasing to God. When you offer your bodies to God, you are worshiping him in the right way. 2 Don’t live the way this world lives. Let your way of thinking be completely changed. Then you will be able to test what God wants for you. And you will agree that what he wants is right. His plan is good and pleasing and perfect.” (Romans 12:1-2).
Through giving:
“You have shown yourselves to be worthy by what you have given. So other people will praise God because you obey him. That proves that you really believe the good news about Christ. They will also praise God because you share freely with them and with everyone else.” (II Corinthians 9:13).
Through bearing fruit:
“By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.” (John 15:8).
“Many people who lie dead in their graves will wake up. Some will rise up to life that will never end. Others will rise up to shame that will never end. 3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the sky. Those who lead many others to do what is right will be like the stars forever and ever.” (Daniel 12:2-3).
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23)
Through believing Jesus:
“Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”” (John 11:40).

How to Pray?

Dear friends in Jesus Christ,
In today’s letter to you, I would like to discuss, on the topic which holds a great important in our Christian lives.

How to Pray

In the beginning, I thank father, for he is my everything, and he leads me in all, and ask you all, to say a prayer for me, so that I can show you the ways all of it, just like I’ve showed.
Isn’t it true friends, that we all at some point of our lives, struggle with this persistent issue?
And I tell you what, all what I’ve been telling you till now, about how to have faith, through obedience, love & personal experience, to bring glory to God the father, will not be useful, if we don’t pray, simply because prayer is the ammunition that we need to do father’s mission.
If my words hurt you now friend, them I’m earnestly sorry for that, for that godly sorrow which just entered in your heart it will bring repentance and I’m sure will change in your heart.
  • Now all I’m saying this to you because, our lives are in union with Christ Jesus, and with Abba Father through the power of the Holy Spirit, remember when Jesus was praying for you and me as we see in John 17:6
Jesus Prays for His Disciples
6 “I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. 7 Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. 8 For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. 9 I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. 10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them. 11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. 12 While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.
That he speaks about being united with father and son and the spirit as one.
  • So this leads me to your question why should we pray?

One of the priests in our church while giving a sermon told us this story, which I want to share with you.
He told us that one of basic commodity of today’s word is a mobile phone nearly everyone has one.
Now it runs on battery, and it gets empty as we use it throughout the day, and at night or when its charge runs out, we simple have to charge it again to use it.
Our lives are just like the same friends, where our soul is our battery and the food of soul is prayer.
If we do not pray regularly, our soul will be weak, and ultimately become obsolete, and won’t be able to lead our lives just like Christ wants us to.
  • Now what will happen then?
We will be vulnerable, vulnerable to the king of all evils, the serpent, we will be so vulnerable to its snares and its temptations that imagine walking in a world which is hostile, and going there without any defense?
Because St Paul says, “for our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”( Ephesians 6:12)
I was there, my friends in Christ Jesus, I was there, running wild, didn’t knowing what to do, every single day waking up thinking why am I alive? I didn’t know what to do, I simple used to ask God that why you didn’t take my life when I was sleeping, and trust me that’s what depression looks like. For one whole year I was there. And I tell you friends its dangerous and one really do not want to be there.
So that you do not go there friend, I urge you, or so that you hear me, I beg of you, please pray.
  • Now I would like to tell you how to pray.

Surprisingly enough, all of you know a lot many ways to pray, even more than I do.
But there is no definite rule to my knowledge on how to pray. I tell you friends what I believe, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, you must do it all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31), and that my friend,is prayer for you.
But it has a few conditions,
  • When you pray remember to praise him first, I mean even if you are going through a tough time, remember he is keeping you alive, I mean a few days ago I saw this picture, though it’s in its comic form its meaningful.

  • Remember to surrender, and when I say surrender, I mean surrender like you are lost and like a baby you’re crying, crying to find your near and dear ones and to run to them and in this case running to Jesus. So when you pray you might cry, but don’t be surprised and keep on surrendering falling down in your knees, tell God what you have and what you don’t have, you’re success and your failures. You’re going through a breakup, or abuse, or you’re fighting with addictive behaviors like lying, or angriness, just tell it at his feet, and just give it all to him.
  • Remember to say sorry for all your sins from your heart, and to forgive all the persons who have hurt you because if you hold someone back, your sins would be hold back too, as the scripture says “And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins” Mark 11.25)
  • I tell you what friends, the next one is about intentions and petitions, ask Jesus like he’s your friend your elder brother, because he is. As John 15:15 says “whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you” But be sure to ask for other people first and then for yourself as an act of humility before God.
Till now you have prepared yourself for the Lord to speak, and now if you leave, you’ll miss his Words, his Holy Words, and the fruit of your prayer.
  • So this my friend, is Lectio Divina (Divine Reading), the one thing, which I really love and the one thing which I give you friends as a personal gift from me today, just as Jesus gave it to me.
By now I believe that you have a firm imagination in your mind that your friend, your Jesus is sitting in front of you and talking to you. (Well if you have not then, try to imagine that)
In your very own way ask father, to open your eyes that you can see the words, to open your ears that you can hear him, to open your heart that you can understand and feel him.
After this just like, Samuel said, “Speak for your servant is listening” (1st Samuel 3.10), say something like this in your own words or you can use this as well. Then open your bible and kiss it, for the page your have opened has that secret message, the blessed assurance.
Lift it high as your hands can go, and praise god for hearing you out and answering you, then ask God to show you, where in the pages which you just opened is his message for you, now this part can be different, but God will show you.
Like in my case when I ask God to show me, I see an amazing light, falling on a particular paragraph or a verse which only I can see, even when my eyes are closed.
So that is how my friend, your God and mine will speak to you in that way.
And then if you understand the message, very well, you should proceed to the next step, if you don’t keep on asking god to reveal this message to you, and you will see how it gets revealed and how it becomes more meaningful.
  • Then the last part giving thanks to God for the amazing grace you just received.

But friends, I must warn you against some sins which I did so that you may not fall on the same trap.
  • Warning against pride
So I tell you friends all of these won’t work if you are not humble, and if you do not love people the same way Christ loved us.
  • Now I’ll tell you on a personal level why, why you should be humble and try to love the way Christ has loved you.
When I was in my bible school, learning, studying theology and the bible, it was an amazing joy for me.
But in my negligence of humility, all of these knowledge made me proud, and so proud my friend, that I used to compare me with the priests or other pious people, and I use think that I’m right and they are all wrong.
I used to think like Adam and Eve did, believing in Satan’s temptation that “You will be like Gods”.
  • And you want to know what happened to me after that?
The same thing that happened to Adam and Eve, banishment from the God’s grace, mercy & love, living in flesh, living in sin, where the cloud of my sky became so thick, that I cannot see God anymore. It was God’s punishment for me, Just like God punished Israel like we see in the book of Numbers (Numbers 14:34) “For forty years—one year for each of the forty days you explored the land—you will suffer for your sins and know what it is like to have me against you.’ 35 I, the Lord, have spoken, and I will surely do these things to this whole wicked community, which has banded together against me. They will meet their end in this wilderness; here they will die.”
So friends this is my warning to you, Satan in cunning and it will make you proud, but when this comes to you, I’ll tell you friends what to do, because now I know who we are as Genesis 2:7 says “Then the Lord God took some clay from the ground and formed a man out of it; he breathed life-giving breath into his nostrils and the man began to live.” Remind yourself that we are nobody; we are that clay which God breathed life in.
It is only God who came from heaven to show us light, that is why we know, and we know what we are told by the spirit. It is not controlled by us, it’s a gift, a privilege that he has given us so that we can be his apostles, and bring glory to father on earth and when our life ends on earth that we can become one with the father and the son and the spirit just like Christ willed.
  • My next warning to you is to stay away from False Prophets and Pharisees,
There is, but huge difference between a God’s chosen apostle and false self proclaimed prophet, as the scripture says
“I Never Knew You
21 “Not everyone who calls me ‘Lord, Lord’ will enter the Kingdom of heaven, but only those who do what my Father in heaven wants them to do. 22 When the Judgment Day comes, many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord! In your name we spoke God’s message, by your name we drove out many demons and performed many miracles!’ 23 Then I will say to them, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you wicked people!” (Matthew 7:21)
Now how will you know the difference?
  1. God’s apostles will do everything in his name, saying that it is God who is doing it, but self proclaimed false prophets will say I did it.
  2. God’s apostles will be humble and they will show you through their works, the love of Christ that they have received, but the false prophets can’t be humble and can’t show you the love of Christ because they don’t have it.
I’m telling you all these because they will tell you to scream to shout to do this and that just thinking that they are teaching you how to pray.
But in reality, if they don’t know it how to so how can they teach you?
And why do they not know?
It is said in 2 Corinthians 4:4 that “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”

So I tell you friends, again do everything that brings Glory to God the father, for that is and will be forever the definition of prayer.

  • Now I’ve told you a lot, but everything hangs at the edge of a sword if you do not Believe in death of our lord, or in the rising of Lord from death, or in God the Father or the Holy Spirit.
I’m sorry if you do not believe, my friend, you are simply wasting your time. I told you must have faith
in my last letter. So if you do not have faith, nothing else really matters.
In light of this I want you to fill yourself with the scripture reading that I give you today, which father gave me.
Jesus Appears to Thomas(John 20:24-29)
24 Now Thomas (also known as Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”
But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”
26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”
28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
So these are the basic things I told you about praying, remember you can do whatever brings Glory to God, The Holy Eucharist, Rosary prayer, or Singing a Hymn or attending a Charismatic meetings, are all ways of prayer.
  • But I also want to encourage you to have a personal prayer time for yourself, when you and your God will sit beside one another and will talk that’s all , remember what Matthew 6:6 says “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then you’re Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
  • Lastly, I want to end this letter by saying friend, keep your bible handy at all times, no matter what you do, where you go, because who knows when you’re in trouble, the only thing that will strengthen you, can be His Holy Words.

And I tell you this because the 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
Amen.

Peace be with you friend.

Hallelujah

Prayer for the destruction of Evil

Lord I start this letter, by your words which you have taught me

To you, O Lord, I call;
my rock, be not deaf to me,
lest, if you be silent to me,
I become like those who go down to the pit.
 Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy,
when I cry to you for help,
when I lift up my hands
toward your most holy sanctuary.

Brothers and sisters, long are the days when the devil has subjugated us, tried to destroy us, and keep us enslaved at the lash of his whip. Long it has bounded us with our sins, with our works against the one true God, almighty, the creator the world, the protector of this universe and the greatest loving father to us all.

Now its time for us to rise, rise in the light of Jesus Christ, for he has given us the authority over all demons, all snakes, all venoms, all evil spirits and all life less demonic activities.

Let is take the purified blood of Jesus Christ, and anoint us, from the crown of our cross to the soles of our feet, let us cleanse us from any remaining sins that are still trying ways to dominate us, let us keep our faith in Jesus Christ, in his merits and claim freedom and protection in the name of the Holy God, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Let us praise Him, let us praise Father and let us praise the Holy Spirit, that one united with God, we not only can resist the devil and its schemes, not only resist everything that is not of your kingdom, but also destroy them in the name of Jesus Christ. Hallelujah 

Brothers and sisters there is not division now, we are one, we are universal, we are of Jesus Christ, let us end all our differences, and fight the only fight that we should, and that is sanctioned by God. Let us choose life, and die in the old ways of our life only to be alive in Jesus Christ. 

Let is keep aside all things that were holding us, back from soaring high above all things, that are not Godly, in the name of Jesus Christ, who’s names is lifted high. Hallelujah

Let us pray to our heavenly Father, from our hearts, joining hands together, bowing down, kneeling or in anyway we are comfortable to pray.

Let us unite our voices and pray, 

O Divine Eternal Father, in union with your Divine Son and the Holy Spirit, and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg You to destroy the Power of your greatest enemy – the evil spirits.
Cast them into the deepest recesses of hell and chain them there forever! Take possession of your Kingdom which You have created and which is rightfully yours.
Heavenly Father, give us the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
I repeat this prayer out of pure love for You with every beat of my heart and with every breath I take.
Amen

Hallelujah 

Go now friends, in the Name of Jesus Christ, fight this good fight, fight temptations, fight sins, imitate Jesus and live like Him, in the Light of Jesus Christ, for now there is no you or me, but there is only ONE , and that is UNION with one another and with God. Hallelujah

We will have victory for the Lord is with us.
