(1)Is there a life after death?

 

 

We are advanced economically and scientifically. We discovered beyond our sight. We have defeated the sea and land. Space and Milky Way is not at all alien to us. Yet, we have not yet discovered anything about our life after death. In physics or philosophy we do have no satisfying answer. There are fewer enterprises in literature in this regard because of our ignorance. Beliefs related with life after death is purely religious and spiritual. But each religion has different ideas concerning this concept. But; Bible gives an explicit answer for this. An ancient pious Job asks," will man live after his death"?

 

THERE IS A LIFE AFTER DEATH, BECAUSE THERE IS A RESURRECTION.

 

The resurrection is rising from the death. After death we are neither going to take a rebirth nor dissolving to the ultimate being. Because our souls remain and our personality would survive after death. Jesus said," do not marvel at these, for the hour is coming in which all who are in the grave will hear his voice and come for-those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation."(John 5:28, 29).Therefore all must be raised, all that have died from the beginning of time, and all that shall die to the end of time, every person, every soul shall return to it's body. The great is the prison of dead bodies, where they are detained. They will be raised at the last day. Resurrection is for all, not for only saints, but also for sinners. Saints for eternal glory and the wicked for everlasting damnation. Resurrection is possible, because Christ is raised from the dead. The resurrection of Christ is the foundation of Christian faith. He is the author of resurrection. His resurrection does prove that there is a resurrection for us after our death. Jesus said," I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me though he may die, he shall live". (John11:25).

 

 

THERE IS A LIFE AFTER DEATH, BECAUSE THERE IS A JUDGEMENT.

 

The concept resurrection is related with the judgment. We will be resurrected for the judgment. Bible says, "And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment."(Heb 9:27).This judgment is final and decisive, because God has made it necessary and certain. This will determine our future state. This judgment will be executed by our Lord. He comes not to be judged, but to judge. He is not only our saviour, but is our Judge. He is appointed by God to judge the world. And for this purpose He will assemble all before Him. Paul says, "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body according to what he has done, whether good or bad."(2 Cori 5:10).Both Jews and gentile, old and young, bond and free, and rich, and poor, all of every class, every age and every nation.

All will be brought from their grave, and from their places of concealment. We must be seen there. We will be examined before His tribunal. Our thoughts and deeds will be public. The crimes which were hidden will be deciphered. The one escaped here will be caught there. Deserved decree will be pronounced. We will attain either the eternal joy or the eternal damnation.

 

 

THERE IS A LIFE AFTER DEATH, BECAUSE THERE IS AN ETERNITY.

 

We will get in to eternity just after the judgment. There is neither beginning and end nor the day and night. Time is a just a drop of eternity. We are driven by it. Our age is shortened. Days are numbered, time is engaged. Bible says, "seventy years are given us! And some may even live to eighty. But even the best of these years are often emptiness and fail, soon they disappear, and we are gone."(Ps 90:10) .We are born and die. But our souls remain. We get in to an other world just after our death. We will live there forever. We have a hope. We will live there with our Lord. Do you have this hope? We know that there is a death.But; we don't know when it will be? And how it will be? Death is sure, but the time is not. Where will you spend your eternity? Confirm it.

 

 

(2)Precious blood

BLOOD IS THE INEVITABLE COMPOUND FOR LIFE.THERE IS NOTHING MORE PRECIOUS AS BLOOD IN THE UNIVERSE.THE RELEVENCE OF JESUS' BLOOD IS HERE FOR HIS BLOOD SPEAKS STILL.BIBLE SAYS,''TO JESUS THE MEDIATOR OF THE NEW COVENENT AND TO THE BLOOD OF SPRINKLING THAT SPEAKS BETTER THINGS THAN OF ABEL...(HEB 12:24)
 THE BLOOD THAT REDEEMS

     JESUS' BLOOD REDEEMS US.REDEMPTION IS THE DELIVERENCE FROM THE BONDAGE.GOD CEATED MAN AS A FREE BEING.HE WAS WITH GOD.HE HAD COMMUNION WITH JESUS.
     BUT,HE BECAME SINNER BY HIS OWN TRANSGRESSON.SINCE THAT THE WAY UNTO GOD WAS BLOCKED BEFORE HIM AND HE WAS ALIENATED FROM HIM.THUS HE CAME UNDER THE DOMINION OF DEVIL AND CAME UNDER THE DARKNESS OF SIN FROM THE DIVINE LIGHT.
     HE BECAME SLAVE OF SIN AND BEGAN TO REBELL AGAINST GOD.THIS IS THE CAUSE OF OUR TRAGEDY.WE NEED REDEMPTION BECAUSE WE ARE LOST.WITHOUT PAYING A PRICE REDEMPTION IS NOT POSSIBLE.BECAUSE,THE REDEMTION OF OUR SOUL IS
COSTLY.IN EARLY DAYS THERE WAS REDEMTION POSSIBLE BY SILVER AND GOLD.BIBLE SAYS,"KNOWING THAT YOU WERE NOT REDEEMED WITH CORRUPTIBLE THINGS ,LIKE SILVER OR GOLD,FROM YOUR AIMLESS CONTACT RECEIVED BY TRADITION FROM YOUR FATHERS,BUT WITH THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF CHRIST,AS OF A LAMB WITHOUT BLEMISH AND WITHOUT SPOT''(I PET 1:18).
    BUT,HERE IS CHRIST MORE VALID THAN ANY AMOUNT OF SILVER OR GOLD HAD BEEN PAID FOR OUR
REDEMPTION.IT ACCOMPLISHED WHAT SILVER AND GOLD COULD NOT DO.THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY PRICE OF MAN'S REDEMPTION.OUR DEBT IS PAID BY HIS BLOOD AND WE ARE RELEASED FROM THE DAMNATION.
    GOD HAD A PLAN FOR THE REDEMTION OF MANKIND FROM THE BEGINNING.HE PERFORMED IT THROGH HIS ONLY SON.


THE BLOOD THAT JUSTIFIES  
 JESUS' BLOOD JUSTIFIES US. THE TERM 'JUSTICE' IS RELATED WITH 'COURT'.THE DUTY OF A COURT IS DISPENSING JUSTICE.THE COURT PRONOUNCES JUDGMENT ON THE BASIS OF A WRITTEN LAW.JUSTICE IS THE CONDEMNATION OF THE GUILTY,NOT OF THE RIGHTEOUS.WE ARE GUILTY BEFORE GOD BECAUSE OF OUR SIN.SINCE GOD IS JUST THE GUILTY MUST BE PUNISHED.IF THE GUILTY IN THE WORLD IS BEING PUNISHED,HOW MUCH THE GUILTY BEFORE GOD?.BUT,OUR CONDEMNATION WAS BORNE BY JESUS,THE JUSTICE OF THE LORD IS MET WITH.OUR LORD WAS PUNISHED ON BEHALF OF US.OUR CHARGE SHEET WAS WIPED CLEAN BY HIS BLOOD.HENCE,NOT ON OUR DEED,BUT ON HIS DEED WHICH HE HAS ACCOMPLISHED ON THE CROSS WE ARE DELIVERED.WHEN WE BELIEVE IN JESUS ITSELF GOD PRONOUNCES US AS RIGHTEOUS.
     BIBLE SAYS,''MUCH MORETHAN,HAVING NOW BEING JUSTIFIED BY HIS BLOOD,WE SHALL BE SAVED FROM WRATH THROGH HIM''.(ROM 5:9)

THE BLOOD THAT SANCTIFIES

  THE BLOOD OF JESUS SANCTIFIES US.IN THE OLDTESTAMENT THE CLEANSING WAS BY BLOOD OF ANIMALS.SO,THE JEW SACRIFIECED THE LAMBS.THAT WAS CEREMONIAL AND EXTERNAL.BIBLE SAYS,''FOR IF THE BLOOD OF GOATS AND THE ASHES OF A HEIFER,SPRINKLING THE UNCLEAN,SANCTIFIES FOR THE PURIFYING OF THE FLESH,HOW MUCH MORE SHALL THE BLOOD OF CHRIST,WHO THROGH THE ETERNAL SPIRIT OFFERED HIMSELF WITHOUT SPOT TO GOD,CLEANSE YOUR CONCIENCE FROM DEAD WORKS,TO SERVE THE LIVING GOD''.THERE IS NO DELAY FOR SANCTIFICATION.ABNEGATION OR CELIBACY IS NOT NEEDED.ONLY THE BLOOD OF JESUS CAN TAKE THE STAIN OF SIN.BIBLE SAYS,''BUT ,IF YOU WALK IN THE LIGHT,AS HE IS IN THE LIGHT,WE HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH ONE ANOTHER,AND THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST HIS SON CLEANSE US FROM ALL SINS''.(1 JOHN 1:7).WE ARE NOT ALIEN....BUT NEAR,BY THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS.

 

(3)No cross,no crown

THE CROSS IS FAMILIAR TO ALL.BECAUSE CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS.HE WAS APPOINTED FOR THE CROSS AND LED TO THE CROSS.HE ENTERED IN TO GLORY THROUGH THE CROSS.WE WANT HIS CROWN,BUT NOT HIS CROSS.WE WISH HIS FAVOUR,NOT HIS BURDEN.THE CHRISTIAN LIFE IS THE LIFE OF CROSS.JESUS SAID,IF ANYONE DESIRES TO COME AFTER ME ,LET HIM DENY HIMSELF,AND TAKE UP HIS CROSS,AND FOLLOW ME."(MT 16:

WE MUST DENY OURSELVES.THIS IS A HARD LESSON IN OUR LIFE.WE MAKE OURSELVES SELFISH AND SEEK IT'S OWN WILL AND ATTEMPT TO ACCOMPLISH IT.WE WILL BE STUMBLING BLOCK UNLESS IT IS BROKEN AND AN OBSTACLE UNTIL IT IS YIELDED TO HIM.THEREFORE WE NEED THE DISCIPLINE.SO HE WILL TEACH US HIS WILL IN THE TROUBLES AND TRAIN US THROUGH THE TRIALS AND EQUIP US FOR THE SERVICE.SELF DENIAL IS ESSENTIAL FOR HIS SERVICE.WE CANT SERVE HIM BY OURSELVES.THEREFORE, REALISE OURSELVES THROUGH DISCERNING AND KEEP OUR SOUL FROM THE DECEIT OF EVIL.BE A CHRIST CENTERED,NOT A SELF CENTERED.

 

TAKE UP THE CROSS

 

WE MUST TAKE UP OUR CROSS.IT IS AN ALLUSION TO THE ROMAN CUSTOM OF COMBELLING THOSE THAT WERE CONDEMNED TO BE CRUCIFIED, TO CARRY THEIR CROSS.IT IS SUPPOSED THAT THE CROSS LIES IN OUR WAY, AND IS PREPARED FOR US.WE MUST ACCOMMODATE OURSELVES TO THOSE WHICH GOD HAS MADE FOR US.WE MUST TAKE IT UP OUT OF OUR WAY.HE WANTS US TO TAKE UP OUR CROSS,NOT HIS CROSS.HIS CROSS WAS FOR HIM.IT WAS HEAVY.WE CANT TAKE IT UP.BUT,HE TOOK IT UP FOR US.OUR CROSS IS NOT FOR ANOTHER.THIS IS THE CROSS OF CONTEMPT AND BLAME.WE CANT FOLLOW HIM WITHOUT THIS CROSS.OUR CROSS MAKE US A PARTNER WITH HIS SUFFERING AND ALSO PARTNER WITH HIS JOY.

 

FOLLOW ME

 

 WE MUST FOLLOW HIM.DESCIPLE OF CHRIST COMES AFTER HIM,AS THE SHEEP AFTER THE SHEPHERED,THE SERVENT AFTER THE MASTER,THE SOLDIERS AFTER THE CAPTAIN .FOLLOW HIM ALL WAYS NOT  OFTEN.FOLLOW HIM BECAUSE HE IS BEFORE US.WHEN WE FOLLOW HIM HE WILL LEAD US.CHRISTIAN LIFE WILL BE DIFFICULT TO US WITHOUT HIM,BUT IT IS EASY WITH HIM.THEREFORE KEEP OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.WALK WITH HIM AND LIVE WITH HIM.FOLLOW HIM BECAUSE HE IS OUR REST.WE HAVE NO REST UNTILL WE REST IN HIM.HE IS OUR HOPE.OUR HOPE IS BLESSED HOPE.THEREFORE,DONT GO BACKE,BUT COME FORWARD AND FOLLOW HIM.

 

 

(4)Jesus our High priest

 

THE PRIEST IS THE LINK BETWEEN GOD AND MAN WHOSE FUNCTION WAS TO BUILD A BRIDGE BETWEEN MEN AND GOD BY MEANS OF THE SACRIFICIAL SYSTOM.HE MUST KNOW BOTH MAN AND GOD.AND HE MUST BE ABLE TO SPEAK TO GOD FOR MAN AND TO SPEAK TO MAN FOR GOD.

 

 THE JEWISH HIGH PREIST WAS THE SUCCESSOR OF ARON AND THE HEAD OF PREIST, AND HE WAS THE ORDINARY JUDGE OF JUDAISM AND THE JUSTICE OF THE HEBREW COMMONWEALTH.HE ONLY HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF ENTERING THE MOST HOLY PLACE ONCE A YEAR, ON THE GREAT DAY OF ATONEMENT, TO MAKE EXPIATION FOR THE SINS OF THE PEOPLE.THE WRITER OF THE HEBREWS HAD MADE A ACCURATE COMPARISON INBETWWEN JEWISH HIGH PRIEST AND CHRISTIAN HIGH PRIEST.AND HE INDICATED THAT EVEN CHRISTIANS TOO HAVE A HIGH PRIEST AS THE JEWS HAVE.WE HAVE A HIGH PRIEST,BUT NO PRIESTS.APOSTLE PAUL SAYS,"THEREFORE,HOLY BRETHREN,PARTAKERS OF THE HEAVENLY CALLING,CONSIDER THE APOSTLE AND HIGH PRIEST OF OUR CONFESSION,CHRIST JESUS.

 

EVERLASTING HIGH PRIEST:

 

JESUS IS THE EVERLASTING HIGH PRIEST IN HIS APPOINTMENT.HIS APPOINTMENT IS PERMANENT.BECAUSE, HIS APPOINTMENT IS OF GOD.JEWISH  PRIESTHOOD WAS FOUNDED ON GENEOLOGY, AND WAS CHANGEABLE FROM GENERATION TO GENERATION.THAT HIGH PRIEST HOOD WAS ONE WHICH VANISHES WITH THE DEATH.THEY HAD NO PERMANENT PRIESTHOOD.JESUS PRIESTHOOD IS DISTINCT FROM THEM FOR HIS PRIESTHOOD IS TOO INDIVIDUAL.PAUL SAYS,"BUT JESUS WILL NEVER DIE, AND SO HE WILL BE A PRIEST FOREVER."(HEB 7:24).HIS PRIESTHOOD DOES NOT HAVE BEGINNING AND END.HE ENTERED IN TO THE MOST HOLY PLACE FOR US BY OFFERING HIMSELF.GOD ACCEPTED AND PLEASED IN IT.THEREFORE WE CAN ACCESS GOD AT ANY TIME THROGH HIM.

 

PERFECT HIGH PRIEST:

 

JESUS IS THE PERFECT HIGH PRIEST IN HIS CHARACTER.HE WAS PERFECTLY MAN AND GOD.THE JEWISH HIGH PRIEST WAS NOT ONLY MORTAL MAN, BUT SINFUL MAN.THE GREATNESS OF ALL THE LEVITICAL SACRIFICES BEGAN WITH A SACRIFICE FOR THE SINS OF THE HIGH PRIESTS.THAT WAS A SACRIFICE JESUS NEVER NEEDED TO MAKE,FOR HE WAS WITHOUT SIN.THE JEWISH HIGH PRIEST WAS A SINFUL MAN OFFERING ANIMAL SACRIFICE FOR SINFUL PEAOPLE.JESUS WAS THE SINLESS SON OF GOD OFFERING HIMSELF FOR THE SIN OF THE ALL MAN.HE WAS UNSTAINED BY CRIME AND WAS UNSPOTTED FROM THE WORLD.PAUL SAYS,"JESUS IS THE HIGH PRIEST WE NEED,HE IS HOLY AND INNOCENT AND FAULTLESS,AND NOT ATALL LIKE US SINNERS.JESUS IS HONORED ABOVE ALL BEINGS IN HEAVEN."(HEB 7:26)HE BROUGHT GOD TO MAN AND HE CAN BRING MAN TO GOD.

 

ROYAL HIGH PRIEST:

 

JESUS WAS THE ROYAL HIGH PRIEST IN HIS ORDER.BECAUSE IT IS THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK.THE MOST GENERAL OPINION IS THAT HE WAS A CANANITE KING,WHO REIGNED IN SALEM.HE WAS NOT ONLY A PRIEST BUT ALSO A KING.LIKE HIM,JESUS IS KING AND PRIEST.WITHOUT BEGINNING AND END,THE PRIESTHOOD THAT GOD CONFINED WITH AN OATH,THE PRIESTHOOD THAT FOUNDED ON PERSONAL GREATNESS AND NOT ON ANY LEGAL APPOINTMENT OR RACIAL QUALIFICATION,THE PRIESTHOOD WHICH IS ABLE TO OFFER A SACRIFICE THAT NEVER NEED TO BE REPEATED.

 

      JESUS IS OUR HIGH PRIEST.HE OFFERED HIS BODY AS THE SACRIFICE FOR US BEFORE GOD.THERE IS NO MORE SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS.NOW HE IS AT THE RIGHT SIDE OF FATHER AND INTERCEEDING US.HE IS INTERESTED IN YOU AND WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU.HE IS THE WAY THAT LEADS US TO GOD.THEREFORE, COME TO HIM AS YOU ARE, AND COMMIT YOUR LIFE AS WHOLE.

 

 

(5)Life is short,God is great 

 

LIFE  IS THE TIME SPAN IN BETWEEN THE BIRTH AND THE DEATH.BIRTH IS AN ENTRANCE WHERE AS THE DEATH IS SEPERATION.MAN GOES AWAY FROM THIS WORLD PASSING THROUGH THE VARIOUS STAGES OF LIFE.LIFE IS THE JOURNEY,AND ONLY ONCE ONE CAN JOURNEY THROUGH.

THE ORIGIN OF LIFE:

 MAN IS THE PRODUCT OF CREATION, NOT THE PRODUCT OF EVOLUTION.MAN IS MADE FOR GOD.BIBLE SAYS, "SO GOD CREATED MAN IN HIS OWN IMAGE, IN THE IMAGE OF GOD HE CREATED HIM, MALE AND FEMALE HE CREATED THEM."(GEN 1:27).MAN IS THE WONDROUS CREATURE OF THIS WORLD.GOD HAS ASSAIGNED DISTINCT FORM FOR US.IT MAKES ONE DIFFERENT FROM THE ANOTHER.YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE SAME TO YOU.SO ONE CAN BE EASILY IDENTIFIED.GOD IS THE GREAT DESIGNER.NO ONE CAN DESIGN THIS MUCH.GOD MADE MALE AND FEMALE.FEMALE IS MADE FOR THE MAN.WOMAN IS A PART OF MAN AND HIS COMPANION.EACH MAN HAS ONE WOMAN IS THE PRINCIPLE OF GOD.KEEP YOUR VESSEL AS YOUR OWN.ONE FEMALE IS ASSAIGNED FOR A MAN EVEN HE IS BORN,AND VICE VERSA TOO.THIS IS THE SECRET OF MAN,WOMAN PROPOSITION.WOMAN IS DECEIVED BY THE SNAKE AND THE MAN IS BY THE WOMAN.MAN'S PRIMARY STAGE WAS NOT THUS.THEY WERE WITH GOD.THEY HAVE BEEN THROWN DOWN BECAUSE THEY HAVE TRANSGRESSED THE LAW.SINCE THEN MAN HAS BEEN IN OPPOSITION TO GOD.THIS IS THE CAUSE OF EVERY TROUBLE WE FACE.THEREFORE WE NEED A RESTORATION.

THE PURPOSE OF LIFE:

MAN'S LIFE IS RELATED WITH GOD.HE HAS A PLAN FOR THE EACH ONE OF US.OUR BIRTH AND LIFE IS ACCORDING TO HIS DECREE.THEREFORE THE AIM OF LIFE IS TO FIND GOD.GOD MAKES THE CHANCES FOR EACH ONE TO FIND HIM.IF WE LOOSE IT HERE, NEVER AGAIN WE WOULD GET SUCH A CHANCE.BIBLE SAYS,"SEEK THE LORD WHILE YOU CAN FIND HIM.CALL UPON HIM NOW WHILE HE IS NEAR."(IS 55:6) SO THE CAUSE OF OUR DESTRUCTION IS WE OURSELVES.LIFE IS SHORT.WE LIVE HERE FOR A LITLE WHILE.EVEN WHILE WE ARE BORN ITSELF OUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED.MOSES SAYS,"SEVENTY YEARS ARE GIVEN US,AND SOME MAY EVEN LIVE TO EIGHTY.BUT EVEN THE BEST OF THESE DAYS ARE OFTEN EMPTINESS AND PAIN,SOON THEY DISSAPEAN,AND WE ARE GONE."(PS 90:10)EVENTHOUGH A MAN IS DEAD, HIS GENERATION PREVAILS.THAT IS THE REASON OF MAN'S EXISTENCE HERE IN THIS WORLD.BIRTH AND DEATH WILL BE CONTINUING TILL THE END.ONE GENERATION GOES OUT, AND THE OTHER COMES IN.EVENTHOUGH YOU ARE THE LEAST ONE AMONG THE CROWD, GOD CARES FOR YOU.GOD DEALS WITH US PERSONALY.WE HAVE TO STAND INFRONT OF HIM,BY ALONE.WE ARE ACCOUNTABLE TO GOD.THEREFORE BE FAITHFUL.WHEN GOD CALLS US WE MUST LEAVE HERE.ONE DAY WE WILL DIE.WE ARE HELPLESS INFRONT OF DEATH.BIBLE SAYS,"NO MAN CAN LIVE FOREVER.ALL WILL DIE.WHO CAN RESCUE HIS LIFE FROM THE POWER OF GRAVE?."(PS 89:48)

THE DECISION OF LIFE:

THERE NEEDS A DESCISION IN LIFE.CONFIRM YOUR ETERNITY.GOD CREATED MAN FOR THE ETERNITY.BIBLE SAYS,"HE HAS MADE EVEYTHING BEAUTYFUL IN IT'S TIME.ALSO HE HAS PUT ETERNITY IN THEIR HEARTS,EXCEPT THAT NO ONE CAN FIND OUT THE WORK THAT GOD DOES FROM BEGINNIN TO END."(ECC 3:11). GOD GAVE HIM THE BREATH OF LIFE.WE CALL IT 'SOUL'.SOUL IS NEEDED FOR A PERSONALTY.WHEN THIS SOUL LEAVES A FLESH,IT JUST REMAIN AS A DRY FLESH.'SOUL' IS IMMORTAL.WE ENTER IN TO THE REALM OF 'SOUL' AFTER OUR DEATH.HEAVEN AND HELL ARE REAL.HEAVEN IS THE PLACE FOR EVERLASTING JOY AND THE OTHER ONE IS OF DAMNATION.WE WILL LIVE THERE FOREVER.YOUR DECISION DETERMINES YOUR ETERNITY.SOLOMON THE WISE SAYS,"LET US HEAR THE CONCLUSION OF THE WHOLE MATTER:FEAR GOD AND KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS,FOR THIS IS MAN'S ALL."

    JESUS IS ALIVE.HE IS NOT IN THE TOMB AND ONE THE CROSS.BUT ALIVE.WE HAVE FOUND THE MEANING OF LIFE IN HIM.HE CAN SAVE YOU.COMMIT YOUR LIFE FOR HIM.

 

 

(6)Earth quakes,He comes!

 

 

CURRENT WORLD EVENTS ENTAIL AN IMPENDING FINILE.NONE COULD PREDICT THE NEXT FOR THE TEMPO OF COURSE IS TOO STAGGERING.NO SUCH AN EVENT IS ACCIDENTAL FOR EVEN MANY CENTURIES AGO IT WAS BEEN FORETOLD.CURRENT EVENTS RATIFY THE RECTITUDE OF THE WORLD.BESIDES THE FULFILLMENT OF THE WORLD NO CASUALTY TAKES PLACE IN THE WORLD.EVERYTHING INCLUDING TIME, CULTURE, DOMINION AND LAW IS LIABLE TO CHANGE, BUT THE WORD OF GOD IS NOT. CONCERNING THE CHANGES IN THE WORLD, WELLKNOWN NATURALIST DR.ISAC ASIMOVE SAID, "WHEN THIS CENTUARY ENDS, THERE WONT REMAIN ANY SINGLE SIGN OF HUMAN EXISTENCE, IF IT WOULD TOO THERE WOULD HAVE BEASTAL CHANGES IN HUMAN, PHYSIOLOGICALY AND IN CHARACTERS.

       EARTHQUAKE IS GIVEN AS A SIGN FOR THE END OF THE WORLD AND FOR THE COMING OF CHRIST.BEFORE NINETEEN CENTURIES AGO JESUS SAID. "FOR NATION WILL RISE AGAINST NATION, AND KINGDOM AGAINST KINGDOM.AND THERE WILL BE FAMINES, PESTILENCES AND EARTHQUAKES IN VARIOUS PLACES". (MATTHEW 24:7).

           THE DREADFUL MEMOIRS OF THE CALAMITY WHICH SHOOK THE WORLD HAVE NOT DIED DOWN YET.THE EARTHQUAKE WHICH OCCURED IN THE SEA SWAYED THE LIVES OF LAKHS.THAT WAS IN AN UNEXPECTED TIME.NOT ONLY IN THE LAND,EVEN IN THE SEA EARTHQUAKE HAPPENS.IT IS MORE POWERFUL THAN ON THE LAND.THE SEA WHICH CARESSES MANY'S HOPE BECOMES DREAD INSTEAD.THE QUAKES IN THE SEA AFFECTS THE COASTS  AND ISLANDS .GOD DID SPEAK THROUGH THE PROPHET HAGGAI BEFORE TWO THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED YEARS FROM NOW, "FOR THUS SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS: ONCE MORE, IT IS A LITLE WHILE I WILL SHAKE HEAVEN AND EARTH, THE SEA AND DRY LAND.(HAGGAI 2:6).EARTHQUAKES STARTLE THE WORLD NOW,NOT AS BEFORE.WE GET IT UNEXPECTEDLY FOR WE CANT PREDICT IT.

            ACCORDING TO BIBLE THE INIQUITY OF THE WORLD IS THE CAUSE OF THESE CASUALTIES.THE BURDEN OF SIN IS TOO MUCH FOR THE WORLD TO BEAR.BIBLE SAYS, "THE EARTH IS SPLIT OPEN, THE EARTH IS SHAKEN EXEEDINGLY.THE EARTH SHALL REEL TO AND FRO LIKE A DRUNKARD, AND SHALL TOTTER LIKE A HUT, IT'S TRANSGRESSION SHALL BE HEAVY UPON IT, AND IT WILL FALL, AND NOT RISE AGAIN. (ISAIAH 24:19-20).

            THE NATURAL CALAMITIES SERVE AS INDICATORS FOR THE HUMANITY TO GOD.THE VERY SINGLE MEANS FOR SALVATION IS TO TURN BACK TO GOD.BIBLE SAYS, "LET THE WICKED FORSAKE HIS WAY,AND THE UNRIGHTEOUS MAN HIS THOUGHTS.LET HIM RETURN TO THE LORD,AND HE WILL HAVE MERCY ON HIM,AND TO OUR GOD,FOR HE WILL ABUNDANTLY PARDON.(ISAIAH 55:7).

                  WE CANT CONCLUDE THE WORLD EVENTS AS MERE PHINOMENAS OF NATURE.THERE IS A GOD WHO CREATED THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH.THAT GOD IS ALIVE.BIBLE SAYS, "LIFT UP YOUR EYES TO THE HEAVEN, AND LOOK ON THE EARTH BENEATH.FOR THE HEAVENS WILLVANISH AWAY LIKE SMOKE, THE EARTH WILL GROW OLD LIKE A GARMRNT, AND THOSE WHO DWELL IN IT WILL DIE IN LIKE MANNER, BUT MY SALVATION WILL BE FOREVER." (ISAIAH 51:6).

               

                          LIFE IN THIS WORLD IS NOT ETERNAL,A LIFE IS AHEAD AFTER OUR DEATH.A HEAVEN IS THERE AND A HELL.GET JESUS AS SAVIOUR FOR YOU TO FLEE FROM THE IMPENDING JUDGEMENT. "BECAUSE IF THOU SHALT CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH JESUS AS LORD, AND SHALT BELIEVE IN THY HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD SHALT BE SAVED."(ROMANS 10:9)

 

 

 (7)Sharing:the solution of poverty

 BIBLE IS THE BOOK WHICH ARGUES FOR THE POOR AND NEEDY.BIBLE GIVES THEM PRIORITY AND CONSIDERATION WHEREAS GIVES WARNING FOR THE RICH.THE GAP IN BETWEEN THESE TWO IS THE GREATEST EVIL OF THIS WORLD.MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION ARE UNDER POVERTY LINE.BUT,THE MAJOR PART OF PROPERTY IS OWNED BY THE RICH.HEREIN LIES THE RELEVENCE OF SHARING.SHARING IS MORE CHRISTIAN THAN HUMAN CONSIDERATION.THE SOLUTION FOR POVERTY IS 'SHARING' AND SHARING' ITSELF.

'SHARING' IS THE BEST WAY OF MONEY MANAGING:

  RICHES IS NOT TO BE AMASSED,BUT TO BE SHARED.JESUS RETORTED TO THE QUIRE OF THE RICH YOUNG RULER WHO WAS IN SEARCH OF ETERNAL LIFE:"THERE IS ONE THING YOU STILL NEED TO DO.GO AND SELL EVERYTHING YOU OWE ,GIVE THE MONEY TO THE POOR,AND YOU WILL HAVE RICHES IN HEAVEN,THEN COME AND BE A FOLLOWER".(LK 18:22).EVENTHOUGH THE EARTH HAS THE SOURCES FOR EACH AND EVERY HUMAN,EVERYONE DOESNT GET HIS OR HER OWN PART SUFFICIENTLY.'POVERTY' IS THE RESULT OF THAT.THE MEANING OF 'POOR' IS ONE WHO IS IN NEED.WHERE THERE IS NEED THERE IS THE RELEVENCE OF SHARING.MAKING RICHES IS NOT SIN,BUT USURPING IS SIN.RICHES DOES NOT LEAD ONE TO GOD AND TAKES AWAY FROM GOD.BUT WHAT MATTERS IS THE ATTITUDE TOWARDS THE RICHES.ONE NEEDS TO BE CAREFUL ENOUGH NOT TO LOSE THE ETERNAL LIFE BY AMASSING THE RICHES.

'SHARING' IS THE BEST TO WAY TO HELP OTHERS.

 SHARING IS THE SECRET OF SATISFACTION.THE CHRISTIAN LIFE IS THE LIFE OF SHARING.THE EXCESS WHICH IS MORETHAN OUR NEED MUST BE SHARED.JOHN THE BAPTIST WHO WAS INTRODUCING JESUS,THE SO CALLED THE PREACHER IN THE WILDERNESS SAID," IF YOU HAVE TWO COTS,GIVE ONE TO SOMEONE WHO DOES NT HAVE ANY.IF YOU HAVE FOOD,SHARE IT WITH SOMEONE ELSE".(LK 3:11).WHEREAS THE ONE PART OF THE WORLD LAUGHS THE OTHER CRIES.REMEMBER THE ONES WHO ARE NOT FED ATALL WHEN WE ARE WELL FED AND OVER FED.WE SHOULD NOT NEGLECT THE POOR,BUT SHOW COMPASSION TO THEM.THEY ARE OUR BROTHERS NOT BEGGERS. JAMES THE APOSTLE SAYS,"MY DEAR BROTHERS,PAY ATTENTION,GOD HAS GIVEN A LOT OF FAITH TO THE POOR PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD.HE HAS ALSO PROMISSED THEM A SHARE IN HIS KINGDOM THAT HE WILL GIVE TO EVERYONE WHO LOVES HIM."(JAMES 2:5)

'SHARING' IS THE BEST WAY FOR EQUALITY.

 THE RICHES IS THE ROOT OF EVERY SEPERATION.ON THE BASE OF RICHES WE ARE SEGREGATED IN TO THE CLASSES.SHARING IS THE REMEDY FOR THIS SEGREGATION.THE AIM OF THE CHRISTIAN SHARING IS EQUALITY.PAUL THE APOSTLE SAYS,"I AM NOT TRYING TO MAKE LIFE EASIER FOR OTHERS BY MAKING LIFE HARDER FOR YOU.BUT IT IS ONLY FAIR FOR YOU TO SHARE WITH THEM WHEN YOU HAVE SO MUCH,AND THE HAVE SO LITLE LATER WHEN THEY HAVE MORETHAN ENOUGH,AND YOU ARE IN NEED,THEY CAN SHARE WITH YOU."(2 CORI 8:9).SHARING IS THE REMEDY OF STEALING.WHERE THERE IS SHARING THERE IS NO STEALING.ZACHAIUS,WHEN CONFRONTED WITH JESUS TOLD,"I WILL GIVE HALF OF MY PROPERTY TO THE POOR.AND I WILL PAY BACK FOUR TIMES AS MUCH TO EVERYONE I HAVE EVER CHEATED."(LK 19:8).IF ONLY THE SHARING IS MADE POSSIBLE,THE POVERTY ERADICATION WILL BE DONE.IN SHARING THE CHRISTIANS MUST BECOME ROLE MODELS FOR WHOLE WORLD.

       CHRIST IS THE MODEL OF SHARING.APOSTLE PAUL SAYS,"FOR YOU KNOW THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST THAT THOUGH HE WAS RICH,YET FOR YOUR SAKE HE BECAME POOR,THAT YOU THROUGH HIS POVERTY MIGHT BECOME RICH."(2 CORI 8:9).NOT ONLY HE BECAME POOR,BUT GAVE HIS LIFE FOR US.WHY NOT WE DEDICATE OUR LIFE FOR HIM?.DECISION YOURS.

 

 (8)Global Evangelism    

                                           THIS IS THE VERY SERIOUS QUIRE OF  THIS CENTURY CHRISTIANITY.THIS IS THE GREAT CHALLENGE IN FRONT OF US.JESUS WHILE HE WAS IN THIS WORLD  PREACHED THE GOSPEL.HE FULFILLED HIS TASK.THE OBLIGATION OF EVANGELIZING THE WHOLE WORLD IS FALLEN ON US, NOT ON THE ANGELS .WE ARE CALLED FOR THE EVANGELISM OF THE WORLD.HOW CAN WE MAKE POSSIBLE THE GLOBAL EVANGELISM?.

IF IT BE MADE POSSIBLE, THE GOSPEL MUST BE PREACHED.

  JESUS SAID, "GO YE TO THE WHOLE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL THE EVERY CREATURE"(MARK:16:15).THE GREATEST COMMISSION THE RISEN LORD GIVEN TO HIS DISCIPLES IS THIS.JESUS SAID TO GO AND PREACH.WE HAVE NO NEED TO WAIT FOR THE PEOPLE,BUT WE NEED TO GO IN TO THEM.NOT ONLY PRAYING FOR THE SOULS BUT MUST GO IN TO THEM.NO NEED TO WAIT FOR THE DIVINE CALL…BUT MUST GO.THIS IS THE FIRST STEP OF EVANGELISM.WE MUST PREACH TO EVERY CREATURE.NOT ONLY TO THE JEWS,SAMARITANS OR GENTILES…BUT TO EVERYONE.IT DOES NOT HAVE CAST,CREED AND COLOR BARRIERS.WE MUST PREACH THE GOSPEL.IT SHOULD NOT BE CONCERNING RELIGION OR PHILOSOPHIES.PAUL'S POINT OF PREACHING WAS JUST JESUS THE GOSPEL.THE GOSPEL IS THE CHRIST.

IF IT BE MADE POSSIBLE,WE MUST BE WITNESSES.    

   JESUS SAID, "BUT YOU SHALL RECEIVE POWER WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS COME UPON YOU; AND YOU SHALL BE WITNESS TO ME IN JERUSALEM, AND IN ALL JUDEA AND SAMARIA AND TO THE END OF THE EARTH". (ACTS 1:8).JESUS HAD NOT MADE HIS DESCIPLES HASTE FOR HIS WORK.THEY ARE CALLED AND DEDICATED FOR THE HEAVENLY TASK.YET,THEY WERE IN NEED OF POWER FROM ABOVE.SO,THEY HAVE AWAITED FOR THE PROMISE FROM ABOVE.THEY WERE IN NEED OF THE POWER OF HOLY SPIRIT,NOT THE THEOLOGICAL PRUDENCE OR HIGH QUALIFICATIONS.HENCE,THE BASIC QUALIFICATION TO BE A SERVANT OF GOD IS NOT THEOLOGICAL PRUDENCE.THE HINDRANCE FOR THE GLOBAL EVANGELISM IS NOT POLITICS OR ANYTHING,BUT THE NOT POWERED EVANGELISTS.THEY ARE OF NO USE AND MIGHT LESS.THE POWER IS GIVEN NOT ONLY FOR PRAYER AND WORSHIP…BUT FOR WITNESS ALSO.

IF IT BE MADE POSSIBLE,WE MUST PRAY.

   THE DIFFERENCE IN BETWEEN THE EARLY AND MODERN EVANGELISM  IS THE FIRST ONE WAS ON PRAYER.THOSE DAYS' LEADERS AND POLITICS WERE AGAINST THEM.YET…THEY WERE PRAYING PEOPLE.THEREFORE,IN SPITE OF PERSECUTIONS THE GOSPEL WAS SPREAD.EVEN THE NEED OF THIS ERA IS ALSO PRAYER.PRAYER ACCELERATES THE EVANGELISM.THE  REASON OF DROWSINESS IN EVANGELISM IS THE LACK OF PRAYER.WE CANT REPLACE PRAYER WITH ANYTHING.PRAYER MANIFESTS THE POWER OF GOD.WHEN WE KNEEL DOWN,GOD GLORIFIES HIS NAME IN WORKING GREAT THINGS DOWN AMONG US.THE PRAYER CAN CHANGE NATIONS AND POWERS.NOT ONLY FOR THE WORK,BUT WE MUST ALSO PRAY FOR THE WORKERS.JESUS ASKED US TO PRAY TO THE LORD OF HARVEST TO SEND LABORERS TO THE FIELD FOR THE  HARVEST IS PLENTY AND WORKERS ARE FEW.THE WORLD IS A FIELD.THE CROPS WILL BE WASTE IF IT IS NOT HARVESTED AT RIGHT TIME.THIS IS NOT THE TIME OF SLUMBER ,BUT OF HARVEST.

         IF THE GLOBAL EVANGELISM HAS TO MAKE POSSIBLE A COMBINE ATTEMPT IS NEEDED.THIS IS POSSIBLE WITH YOU AND ME.WHEN THE CRORES ARE DYING WITHOUT CHRIST, WE WILL BE ASKED FOR THEIR SOULS.IF WE DO NOT GO, WHO WILL GO FOR US?TAKE A DECISION RIGHT NOW.

 

(9)Revive us again !

                                                            

                                                   OUR SO CALLED CULTURED POST MODERNITY IS IN THE ZENITH OF RENOVATIONS.IN WHOLE STRAND OF LIVES WE HAVE ATTAINED THE ADVANCEMENTS.THE STANDARD TO SCALE THE ADVANCEMENT IS NOT SCIENTIFIC OR ECONOMIC REVIVAL.BUT THE STANDARD IS THE SPIRITUAL REFORMATION.AN OTHER TERM TO DENOTE THE 'REFORMATION'  IS 'REVIVAL'.

 

                    WE ARE MUCH ACCUSTOMED WITH THE TERM 'REVIVAL'.IN THE SPIRITUAL REALM THIS TERM IS UNDER MUCH SERIOUS DELIBERATION. 'REVIVAL' IS NOT SOMETHING BASICALY A SURFACIAL EXPERIENCE OR AN IMPULSIVE EXPRESSION.BUT, IT IS A RADICAL SPIRITUAL CHANGE IN A PERSON.

 

                 'THE REVIVAL' IS THE NEED OF THIS ERA.THIS IS THE ARDENT CRAVING OF GOD'S PEOPLE AT LARGE.THIS IS NOT ATALL AN INTELLUCTUAL IDEA OR A NEW INVENTION.RATHER, THE PROMISS OF THE LIVING GOD AND THE INHERITENCE OF HIS PEOPLE.REVIVAL COMES FROM GOD, BEING REGULATED BY HIM AND LEADS BACK TO HIM.THE WORD OF GOD IS THE VERY FACTOR WHICH GUIDES ONE TO GENUINE REVIVAL.THE REVIVAL IS ONLY MADE POSSIBLE ON THE DEMANDS OF GOD.

 

REVIVAL IS NOT POSSIBLE WITHOUT TURNING BACK TO GOD

             THE TIME IS RIPE FOR THE CHILDREN OF GOD TO TURN BACK TO GOD.WHEN THE WORLD GETS ADVANCEMENTS WE ARE BEING THROWN DOWN IN THE DEPTH OF SPIRITUAL LETHARGY.SPIRITUALY, WE ARE BLIND AND DEAF.OUR EYES ARE BLIND TO SEE THE GLORY OF GOD.OUR EARS ARE DEAF TO HEAR HIS STILL SMALL VOICE.THE VERY REMEDY FOR OUR SPIRITUAL CONDITION IS TO TURN BACK TO GOD.IT SHOULD NOT BE BY OUR OWN EFFORTS OR BY SOMEONE'S INSTIGATION.IF THAT IS SO,GOD WOULD'NT ACCEPT IT.THE CONTENTMENT WHICH WE HAVE OF OUR PRESENT SPIRITUAL CONDITION WITHOUT TURNING BACK TO GOD IS THE FATAL STUMBLING BLOCK FOR OUR REVIVAL.WHOLEHEARTED TURNING BACK IS THE THING WHICH IS REQUIRED FROM US.BIBLE SAYS, "NOW THEREFORE,' SAYS THE LORD, "TURN TO ME WITH ALL YOUR HEART,WITH FASTING,WITH WEEPING AND WITH MOURNING."(JOEL.2:12)

            

REVIVAL IS NOT POSSIBLE WITHOUT THE POURING OUT OF THE HOLYGHOST

           THE VERY GREATEST REVIVAL THE WORLD EVER SEEN IS OF THE DAY OF PENTECOST.THAT WAS THE HISTORIC OUTPOURING OF SPIRIT.THERE BEGINS THE REVIVAL.REVIVAL IS NOT TO BE HAPPENED ATONCE, BUT TO BE REPEATED THROUGH THE AGES.

             REVIVAL IS THE DEED OF HOLY SPIRIT.ONLY THE SPIRIT CAN TOUCH THE SPIRIT.BUT, WE, BY OURSELVES LIMIT THE INDEPENDENT ACTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.WE OUGHT TO ACCEPT THE HOLY SPIRIT AS A PERSON.WE CONTROL THE SPIRIT RATHER HE DOES ON US.WE HAVE OUR OWN PLANS AND PROJECTS.OUR OWN PROJECTS FOR THE REVIVAL ARE THE VERY THINGS WHICH PREVENT IT.WITHOUT BEING IN THE CONTROL OF THE SPIRIT, THE REVIVAL IS NOT POSSIBLE.

                'IN LAST DAYS GOD WOULD POUR OUT HIS SPIRIT ON EVERY FLESH' IS THE PROMISS OF GOD.THIS PROMISS IS ABOVE EVERY CAST, COLOUR AND CREED DISCRIMINATIONS.GOD WOULD FULFILL HIS PROMISS FOR THIS GENERATION TOO.

              AS THE RESULT OF THE OUTPOURING, REPENTENCE IS MADE POSSIBLE.THIS IS THE FIRST ACT OF THE SPIRIT.ONE IS MADE AWARE OF HIS SINS BY HOLY SPIRIT AND HE EVEN MAKES ONE TO ACCEPT THE RESPONSIBILTY OF IT. THE NATURAL MAN IS STIFF NECKED AND NOT SHARING THE LIGHT OF GOD.HE NEVER ACCEPTS THAT HE IS SINNER.HE WILL JUSTIFY HIMSELF.

 

               BY THE OUTPOURNG ONE GETS THE SPIRITUAL LIFE.WE ARE DEAD SPIRITUALY.THOUGH WE HAVE NATURAL LIFE, DOES NOT HAVE SPIRITUAL LIFE.THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS THE SPIRIT OF LIFE.THE SPIRIT OF GOD IS THE PERSON WHO ENLIVENS THE SPIRITUALY DEAD.BIBLE SAYS, "I WILL PUT MY SPIRIT IN YOU, AND YOU SHALL LIVE AND I WILL PLACE YOU IN YOUR OWN LAND". (EZE 37:14).

 

            BY THE WORK OF HOLY SPIRIT ONE IS LEAD TO CHRIST JESUS.THE DUTY OF SPIRIT IS TO GLORIFY JESUS.ONLY BY THE WORK OF HOLY SPIRIT ONE GETS AN ACTIVE RELATION WITH JESUS.AND ONE ACCEPTS JESUS AS CHRIST AND SAVIOUR AND RECIEVES HIM AS THE LORD.THUS, A SINNER GETS BACK TO GOD.THIS IS THE SIGN FOR THE GENUINE REVIVAL.

 

REVIVAL IS NOT POSSIBLE WITHOUT PRAYER.

     

     REVIVAL IS THE RESULT OF PRAYER.WE HAVE THE OBLIGATION TO PRAY FOR REVIVAL.CRAVING FOR REVIVAL WITHOUT PRAYING FOR IT IS WASTE.THE DEEDS WHICH WE DO FOR REVIVALS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE BEFORE GOD.GOD WANTS US TO PRAY FOR REVIVAL.BIBLE SAYS, "ASK THE LORD FOR RAIN IN THE TIME OF THE LATER RAIN.THE LORD WILL MAKE FLASHING CLOUDS, HE WILL GIVE THEM SHOWERS OF RAIN, GRASS IN THE FIELD FOR EVERYONE."(ZECH 10:1). THE WORLD WAITS FOR A LATER RAIN.GOD IS THE ONE WHO SENDS THE RAIN.HE WOULD SHOWER IT ON HIS TIME.

        THE REVIVAL IS TOO PERSONAL.GOD NEEDS PERSONS.FROM PERSON TO PERSON, LAND TO LAND IT WOULD SPREAD.IF HERE ARISES ELIJAHS THE WORLD WOULD KNOW THAT THE LORD IS THE LIVING GOD. IF WE WAIT FOR IT WITH BURDEN GOD WOULD VISIT OUR LAND AND WORLD.BIBLE SAYS, "IF MY PEOPLE, WHICH ARE CALLED BY MY NAME, SHALL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS; THEN WILL I HEAR FROM HEAVEN,AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SIN,AND WILL HEAL THEIR LAND."(2CHRO 7:14)

 

 

(10)Revolution or Redemption?

            

KARL MARX WAS THE GREAT AMONG THE MANY WHO HELD THE CONCEPT OF REVOLUTION FOR THE CAUSE OF REDEMPTION IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.HE WAS TOO FASCINATED IN THE WORKS OF VOLTIRE, ROUSSOU, HOMER AND SHAKESPHERE EVEN FROM HIS CHILDHOOD.GEORGE EARNEST HEGEL, FAUERBACK AND BRUNO BAUR WERE THE NOTED ELITES WHO HAD INFLUNCED MARX'S MIND.COMMUNIST MANIFESTO WAS THE COPERATE ENDEAVOUR OF MARX AND EANGELS.

 

      MARX AND EANGELS HAD ENTERED IN TO THEIR ACTIVE TASKS ABOUT THE MIDDLE OF 19TH CENTUARY.THEY STIRRED THE SO CALLED 'LABOURERS' WITH INSPIRING A NOVEL SENSE THAT THEY HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BESIDES THE CHAINS,BUT HAVE A WORLD TO GAIN: "WORKERS OF THE WORLD,UNITE!."

  

        ACCORDING TO MARX, MAN IS NATURALY A SOCIAL ANIMAL, SO THAT HIS ENTITY IS FULFILLED ONLY IN HIS PART IN HIS SOCEITY, NOT WITH HIS PERSON.THE VERY ONE WHO IS ALIENATED FROM THE SOCIETY IS A SAVAGE FOR MARXISM.ACCORDING TO NEHRU,A CULTERED IS SELF CONTROLLED AND LOVING OTHERS.BESIDES THESE TWO ONE COULD BE VERILY CALLED A 'CULTURELESS'.

   

      ACCORDING TO MARXISM THE REFORMATION HAS TO TAKE PLACE IN SOCIETY, AND ONLY LATER THE PERSONS HAVE TO BE REHABILITATED.CIRCUMSTANCE HAS TO BE CHANGED FOR THE BETTERMENT OF PERSON.IT IS RIGHT THAT THE CIRCUMSTANCE INFLUENCES PERSONS.BUT IT DOES NOT NECESSIARLY BETTER OR MAKE BAD A PERSON.MAN FORMS HIS CIRCUMSTANCES.PRIMARILY REFORMATION HAS TO TAKE PLACE IN A PERSON INORDER THAT A WHOLE SOCIETY HAS TO BE REFORMED.CLASSLESS SOCIETY IS WHERE LANDLORD, LABOURER, BLACK AND WHITE ARE NOT PRESENT,BUT ONLY THE HUMAN DOES.ECONOMICAL VARIATIONS ARE THE BASIS OF CLASS DISCRIMINATION.CLASSLESSNESS WAS THE NATURE OF THE BEGGINNING OF THE WORLD.

         GOD DID NOT MAKE MAN IN THE FORMS WE FIND THEM HERE IN THE WORLD NOW, AS CAPITALIST OR SLAVE IN SUCH A FORMS.GOD MADE HIM ONLY AS HUMAN.THE SLAVERY DOES NOT MATCH TO GOD.GOD IS WITH THE DOWNTRODDEN AND AFFLICTED.THE FIGHT AGAINST THE SLAVERY IS STILL ON ITS PROGRESS.YET, MAN IS STILL IN BONDAGE.THE REAL FREEDOM IS FROM SIN, FEAR OF DEATH, SUPERSTITIONS AND JUDGEMENTS.

                 RELIGIONS AND MARXISM CALL PEOPLE FOR THE FIGHT WITH BLOOD, BUT JESUS WITH LOVE AND PEACE.JESUS INCARNATED AS A HUMAN,NOT AS A RELIGIOUS LEADER.WHEN THE RELIGION AND DUTIES BECOME THREAT FOR HUMANITY JESUS COMES FORTH WITH IT'S REMEDY.THE VERY JESUS WHO CALLED THE WORLD TO BE FREED FROM THE RELIGIOUS BLINDNESS,DIED AS A CRIMINAL PUBLICALY.THE FIGHT AGAINST THE ENSLAVING POWERS LED JESUS TO DEATH.BUT WITH THIS SACRIFICIAL DEATH WHICH BECAME EVERYTHING FOR EVERYBODY IS LIFEGIVING FOR EVERYBODY.WHILE WE ARE REDEEMED FROM THE SIN,AT THE SAME TIME WE HAVE GOT FREEDOM FROM DEATH,SICKNESS,INJUSTICE AND DISCRIMINATIONS.

      EVENTHOUGH THE AWARENESS AND PRACTICE OF HUMAN RIGHTS HAVE BEEN ON PROGRESS, STILL THE CONCEPT OF CLASSLESS SOCIETY IS REMAINING AS A FICTION.BUT THE KINGDOM PROCESS BEGUN IN JESUS IS ON PROGRESS EVEN TODAY.ONLY HE CAN RENDER THE TRUE FREEDOM FOR THE HUMANITY.HE IS OUR REDEEMER.JESUS SAID, "THOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE, IF I MAKE YOU FREE YOU ARE FREE INDEED".

 

 

(11)Behold The Lamb of God!

                                                                                                                                                                    Richard Wumbrand the martyr said; "the reason why does the race of The Lamb exist is the evidence of God's existence. Unless the preserving hand of the almighty sustains, lambs would have been torn in to pieces by voracious creatures." Although many were butchered among these lambs, why they survive is they are significant in one or other way. The Divine attributes seen in these lambs make them unique from other beings.

                               Jesus Christ entered in to the scenario as a successor of John the Baptist. The task committed to John was to introduce Jesus to the world. He was well acquainted with priestly services and temple life for he was born in a lineage of priests.

Seeing Jesus, said he to the very ones going to the temple with sacrificial lambs, "behold the Lamb of God". (Jn 1:29).

THE PASSOVER LAMB:

    The Lamb of God is the Passover Lamb. 'Passover' was a prominent feast of the Jews, among seven of their feasts. 'Passover' is the remembrance of deliverance from the Egyptian bondage. While the whole first born of Egypt were slaughtered, the blood of Slain Lamb spared the Jews. As the Jews were under the bondage of Egypt, the one who sins is slave to sin. Whether we admit or not we all are sinners in front of God. We need a Lamb. Jesus Christ became a Lamb for the redemption of the mankind. Jesus had been designated as THE LAMB even before the ages for the redeeming of humankind. For the redemption of the Jew a lamb was required in Egypt. At the cross of Calvary The Lamb of God, The Christ was slain for our sins. " Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us". (1cor 5:7).

THE SLAIN LAMB:

     The Lamb of God is slain Lamb. Ever since the ancient day sacrificing animals have existed. The number of them can't be counted. Even homicides were performed to please gods. Every religion indicates the indispensability of a sacrifice. Without the shedding of blood, no remission of sin is an unchanging law of God. At each dusk and dawn lambs were slain in the temple of Jerusalem for the sins of the people. Lamb has to be slain only after imputing every sin of the devote on the lamb. Thus, lambs were slain in the very stead of man as substitute. The whole sin of the mankind was imputed on Christ Jesus.

Thus Christ Jesus, The Lamb took on Himself the whole sin of the world. "He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth."

(Isa 53:7).

            Sin is not forgiven because of self-abnegation or good deeds. The remedy of the sin is in propitiation. The sacrifice on the Calvary is the sealing fulfillment of the sacrifices, which were being performed during the centuries. Now here we need no sacrifice or altar. "Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed." (1pet 2:24).

THE INNOCENT LAMB:

         The Lamb of God is the innocent Lamb. The lamb that has to be slain must be unblemished or innocent. Jesus lived as a Lamb. Jesus' challenge of who would make Him aware of His sins resounds even today. No religious elite or others could find any sin in Jesus. Hence, it is lucid that He can redeem us. For the price of redemption of us   Jesus has shed His precious blood. "Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, [as] silver and gold, from your vain conversation [received] by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot." (1pet 1:18,19).

            It is impossible to see a lamb without flaw, but Jesus. Only a sinless could save a sinner. Through Christ The Lamb of God one can access the almighty God. "And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb." (Rev 7:10). Jesus was born sinless, lived, died, rose again and alive today. He is the King of kings, and Lord of lords. He alone is worthy of worship. "Saying with a loud voice, worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing."(Rev.5: 12).

 

            Prayer: Lord, I accept you as my personal savior. Forgiving my sins make me your child…amen.

 

 

                                               

 (12)Humanity of Jesus

 

BIBLE IS THE ANSWER FOR OUR QUIRES.YET, THE HUMANITY&DIVINITY OF JESUS HAS BEEN QUESTIONED FOR A LONG TIME.MANY ARE IN CONFUSION ABOUT THIS.THE DEBATE IS ON STILL.SOME DENY THE HUMANITY OF JESUS WHEN SOME DENY HIS DIVINITY.THESE TWO ARE EAUALY DANGEROUS.THE USAGE ‘SON OF GOD’ SHOWS JESUS’ DIVINITY AND ‘SON OF MAN’ SHOWS HIS HUMANITY.JESUS AGAIN AND AGAIN USED THIS THESE USAGES.

 

JESUS’ INCARNATION PROVES HIS HUMANITY

 

HIS INCARNATION IS A MYSTERY, NOT A MYTH.HIS INCARNATION WAS NOT BY NATURAL COURSE, BUT BY DEVINE ACT.JOHN SAYS,”AND THE WORD BECAME FLESH AND DWELT AMONG US, AND WE BEHELD HIS GLORY, THE GLORY AS OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER, FULL OF GRACE&TRUETH”(JOHN 1:14).THE GREEK TERM FOR ‘WORD’ IS ‘LOGOS’.JEWS’ CALLED IT AS ‘MEMRA’.LOGOS IS A TERM RELATED WITH CREATION.THIS LOGOS BECAME FLESH.SON OF GOD BECAME SON OF MEN.HIS INCARNATION WAS MADE POSSIBLE BY HIS VIRGIN BIRTH.HIS INCARNATIN WAS THE FULFILLMENT OF PROPHESIES,BUT NOT A CASUALTY.BIBLE SAYS,”BUT WHEN THE FULLNESS OF TIME HAD COME,GOD SENT FORTH HIS SON,BORN OF A WOMAN,BORN UNDER THE LAW”(GALA 4:4).HIS INCARNATION WAS A HISTORIC FACT,NOT A FICTION.HE  IS A PROMINENT FIGURE OF HISTORY.HIS INCARNATION IS OVER.HE WONT INCARNATE AGAIN AS OTHER MYTHS DO TELL.NEWTESTAMENT BEGUN WITH HIM.LAW IS CLOSED WITH HIM,AND GRACE HAS BEEN OPEN.

 

JESUS’ HUMILIATION PROVES HIS HUMANITY

 

JESUS WAS SAME TIME MAN AND GOD.DIVINITY AND HUMANITY OF JESUS ARE THE TWO SIDES OF A COIN.HE GAVE UP THE GLORY OF DIVINITY, BUT THE DIVINITY.HIS DIVINE NARURE WAS NOT CHANGED IN TO HUMAN.HE CLOTHED HUMANITY WITH HIS DIVINITY.BIBLE SAYS, “WHO, BEING IN THE FORM OF GOD, DID NOY CONSIDER IT ROBBERY TO BE EQUEL WITH GOD, BUT MADE HIMSELF OF NO REPUTATION, TAKING THE FORM OF A BOND SERVENT AND COMING IN THE LIKENESS OF MAN.”(PHIL 2:6).HE WAS TRULY MAN,NOT A FANTOM.HE HAD BOTH BODY AND MIND.HE WAS HUNGRY AND THIRST.AND GRIEVED AND DISTRESSED.NOT ONLY TO EYES,BUT VIRTUALY HE WAS MAN.HIS HUMANITY WAS EVIDENT TO SEE AND TOUCH.HE WAS THE VISIBLE FORM OF INVISIBLE GOD.BIBLE SAYS, “FOR WHAT THE LAW COULD NOT DO,IN THAT IT WAS WEAK THROUGH THE FLESH,GOD DID SENDING HIS OWN SON IN THE LIKENESS OF SINFULL FLESH,ON ACCOUNT OF SIN:HE CONDEMNED SIN IN THE FLESH”(ROM 8:3).

 

JESUS’ MANIFESTATION PROVES HIS HUMANITY

 

CHRIST IS THE GOD WHO MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH.GOD REVEALED HIMSELF THROUGH SON.BIBLE SAYS, “GOD,WHO VARIOUS TIME AT VARIOUS WAYS SPOKE IN TIMEM,PAST TO THE FATHERS BY THE PROPHETS,HAS IN THESE LAST DAYS SPOKEN TO US BY HIS SON WHO HE HAS APPOINTED HAIR OF ALL THIS THROUGH WHOM ALSO HE MADE THE WORLDS.”(HEBREW 1:1,2).THE ANCIENT REVELATION WAS A COOLECTION OF WRITINGS ON DIFFERENT SUBJECTS,AND GIVEN AT DIFFERENT TIME,HE HAD COMMUNICATED THEM BY SOME DREAMS,BY SOME VISIONS AND BY SOME VOICE,BUT NOW GOD HAD ADDRESSED US BY HIS SON AND SPOKEN BY HIS SON.THE OLD TIME IS PASSING AWAY,THE AGE OF INCOMPLETENESS IS GONE,THE NEW AGE HAS DAWNED IN CHRIST.BIBLE SAYS, “NO ONE HAS SEEN GOD AT ANY TIME.THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON,WHO IS IN THE BOSOM OF THE FATHER,HE DECLARED HIM”(JOHN 1:18).THE FORMER REVELATION WAS THROUGH NATURE AND CONCIENCE,BUT NOW GOD REVEALED THROUGH HIS SON.THE REVELATION THROUGH THE SON IS ULTIMATE.

 

WE CANT COMPREHEND HIS HUMANITY BY SECULAR KNOWLEDGE AND THEOLOGICAL EXPERIENCE.WE CANT PROVE HIS INCARNATION THROUGH TEST TUBE.WE CANT CONVINCE HIS REVELATION WITH OUR ARGUMENTS.IT IS HARD TO PERCEIVE,BUT EASY TO BELIEVE.JESUS IS THE WAY TO APPROACH GOD.GOD WILL EMBRACE YOU THROUGH HIS SON.THEREFORE,COME NEAR TO HIM RIGHT NOW!.
