Be watchful; the end is near

Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man. Luke 21 : 36

Good morning. This is the story which we told the kids when we visited the orphanage last time.

Two friends Sam and Dany chose different paths. Sam became an advocate and Dany went away from the Lord and started committing sins and once he stole something and was in the court. Sam advocated for Dany and won the case though he knew that his friend stole things. He advised Dany and then let him go. The next time also the same happened. Dany was again set free by the help of Sam. Dany then was not afraid to do anything as he knew that Sam was on his side. Now he murdered someone and was in the court searching for Sam. This time he saw Sam not as a lawyer, but as the judge. He was so happy that by any chance he would escape. But he was shocked when he heard his friend declaring a death sentence to him.

Spiritually seeing, Dany is like you and me doing what is not right. Sam is like Jesus who advocates & pleads for us when we commit sins. But as we see lot of things are happening around us which indicate that the end is near. I'm hearing lot of preachers preaching about the last days. In my devotional studies too Lord clearly speaks that His coming is very close by and His kingdom is near. Yes, Christ is coming back again, but not as a baby or as an advocate, but as a judge who is going to judge us rightly according to what we deserve actually.

Watch carefully. Be as the 5 wise virgins who’re well prepared with sufficient oil to meet the bridegroom. Be as the 2 faithful servants who multiplied the talents their master entrusted them with. Be as the wise and honest servant who treated his fellow servants whom his master gave to him. Be as if you’re a little kid to enter into the Kingdom of God. Bible says He would come like a thief who comes with no prior notice. Be alert to live holy, to reconcile with one another, to never give up when you face struggles, to bring lot many people into His flock. Be alert, as you don’t know on what day He would come. Be alert to help the needy people around you so that you’ll be standing as one of the sheep in the right side to enter into the place which the Lord has for.

May God bless!

  1. yes he is a Merciful God. But then we can't tell excuses all the time. At one point we must surrender to him and he will help us. The same happened to me in my Life and now I am free from various Sins and he has set me free, but believe only he can set us free from all of the Sins. (We can't control the temptations / Addictions or whatever sin it may be, but when we surrender to Jesus he helps us)
    As Jansi mentioned the Kingdom is very very near and so lets prepare ourselves.Only through him we can enter the kingdon of God. Thanks Jansi for the wonderul message.It is a great blessing for me and I hope it will be for all ofcourse.
    God Bless You,

Jesus' Word 1 and 2 on the cross

Hi all,

Friends, as this is the Holy week, let us see something about what Jesus spoke when He was on the cross. Yesterday we had a meeting where we shared the Word of God based on these seven Words. There can be n number of emails that can be sent. But I try to make things short. Read a verse and then take a break and then proceed, if it is too long.

Word 1:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34

The people who shouted, “Hosannah!” and who prepared Him way on Palm Sunday, started shouting, “Nail Him on the cross” a few days later. He was beaten up like anything. People spitted on Him. They slapped Him. They made lot on His garments. They made Him bear a heavy cross. He was completely ill-treated by them.

Jesus – is the one who forgives the sins of the people. The primary purpose of Jesus to leave the place of the highest glory to the worst world is to forgive our sins. He insisted the same when He was on the cross when He was completed rejected and despise…

The Alphabet Prayer

“Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.” Exodus 4 : 12

Good morning. I was deeply burdened to share you a message for which I searched a short story. Unbelievably, God allowed me to read this story and yes it conveys exactly what I wanted to share today. I bet you would be inspired by this story. Every child comes with the message if you carefully notice what they do. Here is the story for you.

A little shepherd boy was watching his sheep one Sunday morning and he heard the bells of the church ringing. And watching the people walk along the pasture where he was, he happened to think to himself, “I would like to communicate with God! But, what can I say to God?” He had never learned a prayer. So, on bended knee, he began to recite the alphabet. Repeating this prayer several times, a man passing by, heard the boy's voice and peaked through the bushes. He saw the young boy kneeling with folded hands, eyes closed, repeating the alphabet.…

It is unfair!

Do not grieve; the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:9
Good morning, friends.
During our New Year service when we were asked to share the testimonies, people shared how God has been good to them. It was such a delight to hear from those who experienced God’s hand in their lives. One girl made a statement when she testified the Lord. “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from the depth of my heart for all the good things He has done in my life.” The catchy thing to my ears was “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from my heart.” What an awesome statement that is!
I just think of how many thanks we normally say to people around us. If a person holds the door open for us, we thank them. If the cashier gives away the receipt for our purchase, we thank them. When the waitress serves the food, we thank them. When the team members do a fantastic job, we thank them. When the conductor gives the ticket, we thank them. When someone gives a ride to the office, we thank them. We can add n nu…
