Constant Contact

Enoch lived 365 years, walking in close fellowship with God. Then one day he disappeared, because God took him. (Genesis 5:23, 24 NLT)

God created mankind so intellect, emotional and decisive to have meaningful relationship and fellowship.

This expectation was ruined when Adam sinned, developed guilt, become unwilling to repent and couldn’t face God.

After many generations Enoch for what ever reason “abnormally” fell in love with God and had a constant fellowship with Him – which thrilled God so much that He can’t let him die and lose forever. God took Enoch to be with Him permanently.

John 3:16 says, God sent His Son Jesus to us – so our sin, guilt, unwillingness to repent & reconcile (Adamic nature) be removed, and we can have constant fellowship with God and live permanently with Him!

For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

The wild spreading joy!

Then Simeon blessed them, and he said to Mary, the baby’s mother, “This child (Jesus) is destined to cause many in Israel to fall, but he will be a joy to many others… As a result, the deepest thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your very soul.” (Luke 2:34-35 NLT)

The words, works and the life of Jesus – a mere 3 years and few months of His ministry had changed the whole world!

Religion had collapsed, kingdom had collapsed, people were willing to die, worst outcasts lives were changed 180 degree for good, unheard thousands of miracles started to happen in His Name and His gospel had become the fire in the bones of countless.

On other side, religious became murderers, so thought pious saints were found to be cults, God’s commandments had been redefined and all were put in severe need of true hope in God that Jesus had revealed!

It’s been more than 2000 years now, the fire in bones of those who believed has only became much greater and wildly spreading, His truth has become much clear, His hope has been realized overwhelmingly and embraced more earnestly, faith is understood, fear is fought, forgiveness is received, families and nations that never thought will serve Him has declared “Jesus Christ is the Son of God, our Savior and only Hope. Jesus Christ is indeed the Way, the Life and the Truth!”

In His Name, many are been set free, healed, restored, equipped, appointed and sent to release His joy to every hopeless, depressed, oppressed and possessed!

Jesus, the King of Righteous and Truth reigns!

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God… Luke 15:7

Promise unaltered!

“You said your children would be carried off as plunder. Well, I will bring them safely into the land, and they will enjoy what you have despised.”(Numbers 14:31 NLT)

Israelites wanted the best for their children, but other than slavery nothing Egypt had to offer. They cried out to God because of the cruelty, and it was unthinkable that their children would go thru’ the same if not worst.

God heard the cry and delivered them from slavery miraculously, not just because of His mercy but because of His promise to Abraham!

All the complaints of those “in between” generation didn’t altered God’s promise made to Abraham. The fulfillment of the hope and the promise was for everyone who believed! Those who believed entered and possessed that promise land!

Today, God’s promise to us – the children of Abraham has not changed irrespective of our “in between” generations. If we chose to believe, we has the same hope and promise, and we will enjoy what others has despised!

Clearly, God’s promise to give the whole earth to Abraham and his descendants was based not on his obedience to God’s law, but on a right relationship with God that comes by faith. Romans 4:13

Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. Romans 5:1-2

The Master Fisher

One of the teachers of religious law was standing there listening to the debate. He realized that Jesus had answered well, so he asked, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” (Mark 12:28 NLT)

Lord Jesus took every opportunity to reveal the truth to those who were around and really seeking, even though questions came from rebellious, religious and mere debaters.

When He answered, it was always final – no one could add a word, found a flaw or even a minute gap! They stood speechless irrespective of how they felt inside, either to fall & worship or be envious.

Isn’t our Lord same today! Still many debate, doubt and mock the truth – only resulting in getting more truth out, and bringing more glory and souls to His Kingdom!

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. As the Scriptures say, “He traps the wise in the snare of their own cleverness.” 1 Corinthians 3:19

His name is Wonderful!

They were completely amazed and said again and again, “Everything he does is wonderful. He even makes the deaf to hear and gives speech to those who cannot speak.” (Mark 7:37 NLT)

Every minute somewhere, someone is touched by Christ Jesus and receives their miracle!

If we take a moment to look back at our own lives (or others who has Jesus Christ as their Lord), we will testify that He is so wonderful!

When Jesus walked among people 2000 years ago, they were in peak of joy as they had the very Creator in midst of them and testified that ‘nothing is impossible for God!’

Today, if we come out of our own small circle and start working with other needy people by introducing Christ Jesus their Savior to them – the stage has been set to see for ourselves the most wonderful things He will do for them!

This is exciting, is there anything impossible for Him!

…and the people begged Jesus to lay his hands on the man to heal him. Mark 7:32

Wherever he went—in villages, cities, or the countryside—they brought the sick out to the marketplaces. They begged him to let the sick touch at least the fringe of his robe, and all who touched him were healed. Mark 6:56

Need Help?

I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord. (Psalms 40:1, 3 NLT)

God created mankind and has kept under His authority. It is a simple truth, but many struggle and fail to understand.

The significant importance of having an authority is to go and get help when we are in need. Also, the responsibility of the authority is to help the helpless.

When our lives are surrendered to God, we acknowledge His authority over our lives. Then, no matter what we go thru’, we can cry unto Him – He is in charge to help us, great is His faithfulness, He is the only one truly love us, and nothing is impossible for Him!

Who don’t want to be under such great authority! Let’s understand our design and place ourselves under His wings.

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty. This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go.

The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.” Psalm 91:1-4, 9-16

Do you realize your future?

My guilt overwhelms me— it is a burden too heavy to bear… But I confess my sins; I am deeply sorry for what I have done… Come quickly to help me, O Lord my savior. (Psalms 38:4, 18, 22 NLT)

Self-realization without hope of salvation leads to all kind of superstitious and cult beliefs. This result in false humility and fake godliness, only becoming a blind leading blinds.

Repentance is the most critical element in each human being that has to exhibit when a self-realization occurs, in order to escape the foolishness of religion, cults and atheism.

The attempt of such genuine repentance opens the door of salvation – the knowledge of God, His love for us and His plan to restore our lives from all remorse.

Self-realization
Romans 3:23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.

God made the way for our salvation
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 5:8-11 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since we have been made right in God’s sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God’s condemnation. For since our friendship with God was restored by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be saved through the life of his Son. So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God.

Our right to receive the free gift
Romans 10:9-10, 13 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
