On being Truthful!

Being truthful is so difficult to human nature. Falsification comes so naturally to humans. We find that people lie because lack of courage to be truthful.

Those who live a blameless life, 
who behave uprightly, 
who speak truth from their hearts

Psalm 15:2 (CJB)

People think that no one can see them lying. But God can see it when it pops up in their hearts and minds. Nothing is hidden from God.

Why do people lie? The most common reason is fear. We fear that truthfulness will cause some loss. Yes, Truthfulness is costly. Falsehood brings temporary gain, but in the end it’s was cause so much pain.

God hates liers. God is going to judge the lies of this world. The liars are cowards. They hide behind their lies. They fool the simple hearted.

If we have a choice between speaking the truth versus lies, what will you choose! I feel, it is thousand times better to be truthful. It can save someone’s life.

We live in a world where people are loosing honesty and integrity. Telling truth is considered as foolishness while lying is labelled as smartness.

We can fool people, but we can’t fool the true God. The God of truth is a silent witness to every conversation whether it’s within or outside our hearts.

So be on your guard. Ask Lord to help you to be truthful and nothing else. Thanks for connecting. Be blessed in the name of Yeshua Meshiakh.

Today as I was driving home I noticed many vehicles stopped. I thought that something drastic has happened. For a moment I thought that some car has met with accident and everyone has gathered to watch it.

But then I also noticed that all of them were focusing their phone cameras towards a portion of sky. Then I noticed a beautiful rainbow was displayed over the half portion of sky.

I have always felt thrilled to notice a rainbow in the sky. For it a wonderful sight. My mother would always remember to say that it’s a great sign from our God.

She would refer to the great flood which took place in the days of Noah and how God judged the sinful world. It was quite a scary story. We would ask our mother, “would God again destroy this Earth with another flood?”

Our mom would say, “No! The rainbow is a proof of the promise God made to Noah that God is not going to destroy the Earth with another flood.” Then would also say that the Earth with fire for the sins of this world.

The rainbow will be in the cloud; so that when I look at it, I will remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of any kind on the earth.”

Genesis 9:16 (CJB)

Dear friends, let’s relish the covenant God made with Noah. The Lord was patiently waiting for people to believe the message of salvation preached by Noah.

The people of those days thought that Noah was insane. They all perished in the flood. Today we have the gospel (good news) of salvation through Yeshua Messaih. People instead of accepting, laugh at this good news.

God bless you for reading, liking, and commenting.

A blessing to the world!

Who doesn’t want to be blessed? We all want to be blessed without exception! Day and night we covet blessings of God. We visit religious places to bring blessings to our family.

The definition of blessing differs from person to person. But most will agree with me that blessings mean to be happy! A blessed person is a happy person.

Unhappiness is perceived as a lack of blessing. We blame our bad luck when things aren’t going well. We blame everyone for bad things happen to us. Yes, sometimes bad things happen because of wrong doings of our own species.

Don’t always run after worldly blessings! They don’t bring total lasting satisfaction.

Bible blogger 😃

Can we go beyond that? Can we look for blessing others around us? How can we achieve this? Are we in the place of God to bless others? I am afraid, the answer is no! We are not God!

Genesis 12:2 (CJB): I will make of you a great nation, I will bless you, and I will make your name great; and you are to be a blessing.

I love the story of Abraham in the Holy Bible. God spoke with Abraham like a friend. He tested Abraham intensively. When he passed the test, God blessed him with a promise.

He said, “I am going to bless you.” He also added, “I am going to make you a blessing.” Which one is the bigger blessing? I believe that second one is bigger than the previous one. God blesses everyone, but he makes only few as a blessing.

Don’t be only happy to be blessed! Tell God that you want to be a blessing to others.

Bible blogger 😇

Dear friends, we are not here only to receive blessings upon blessings. We are here to pass and distribute the blessings we receive to others. Has anyone lately told you how much he felt blessed by associating with you?

God blesses everyone but he chooses only few to a blessing to others. You be the one!

Bible blogger 😇🙏

God wants to touch the world through you. You have to be the channel for God’s favour and blessings to flow to the world. God is not coming to bless but to judge everyone. You here to help others to know the truth.

Be blessed in the name of Yeshua Meshiakh. Halleluyah 🙌

Touch me Please 🥺!

Everyone knows that there is a small plant called touch me not. But inspite of this name, we all enjoyed touching this plant. 😃

Touching “touch me not” was my favourite childhood activity during rainy season. I used to find it fascinating to watch the folding of the leaves in a synchronous pattern.

That was the only plant I felt was alive. I never felt that the other plants were living. I saw the split second reflex from this plant was so amazing.

Today COVID-19 pandemic has made us “touch me not” race. Touching each other was the way of life. No touch and social distancing is the “new normal.”

In medical practice, touching patient had paramount importance. Now, patient is touched only if necessary with full PPE. These days, touching can’t be done without “universal precautions.”

Now days, the patient care has become “no-touch-pathy.” The time has come when doctor seats almost 2 meters away from the patient.

The doctors have adopted to “telemedicine,” as the regular medicine has become “hazardous.” I miss those days when I took the risk to stitch a scalp laceration without gloves and mask. Now, it is unthinkable.

Mark 3:10 (CJB): for he (Yeshua/Jesus) had healed many people, and all the sick kept pressing forward to touch him.

During the time of Yeshua (Jesus), people thronged to touch him. He had miraculously healed so many. The people were almost pressing to touch him. People from far off came for healing to Yeshua (Jesus).

Yeshua (Jesus) had to sit in boat to avoid being crushed by the crowd. Oh! Dear! A simple touch is enough for the sick to recover. I feel like our patients are saying, “Doctor, can you please touch me with your healing hands?”

Dear Lord, heal our land so that we can resume our touch therapy. Without touch, we are becoming like robots. Bring healing touch to our people I pray. In the name of Yeshua Meshiakh. 🙏🙇

Throw away garbage! 🗑️

How is your brain 🧠 today? Our brain 🧠 is an excellent computer🖥️. It’s always active. Even in our sleep it’s working.

But this brain 🧠 is controlled by another part called as heart.💓. The heart and brain communicate with unspoken words.

Somethings bother us so much. We call it anxiety and worries. No one in this world is free from these. Everyone is prone to suffer from it at some point in time.

Matthew 6:25 (CJB): Therefore, I tell you, don’t worry about your life—what you will eat or drink; or about your body—what you will wear. Isn’t life more than food and the body more than clothing?

The Holy Bible tells us “don’t worry.” What do we do? We do exactly opposite. We keep on worrying thinking that it will make a difference, but nothing changes.

John 14:1 KJVS
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me (Yeshua).

What is the solution Bible Bible provides to the person with troubled heart. The Bible says that not let your heart be troubled. Believe in Yeshua (Jesus). So simple. But, that’s the most difficult part.

1 Peter 5:7 (CJB): Throw all your anxieties upon him, because he cares about you.

Learn to throw away garbage. The anxieties and worries are like garbage. They need to be safely disposed off. The Bible says that throw away your anxieties at the feet of the Lord. He will take care of you and your garbage.

Dear friend, don’t focus on your garbage. Focus on your valuables. The Lord Yeshua is the precious one in your life. Your family and friends are precious. You can focus on your job.

Don’t ever cast away yourself by saying that it’s too much to bear! I want to die! Say, that the Lord can handle too much for me. I have nothing to fear. It is well with my soul! Pass it on! You might save someone’s life today!

Halleluyah 🙌🤗

The lung machine!

Source

This is one of the news which appeared on Times of India app. I was extremely happy to read that one person’s life was saved by using a lung machine. He was suffering from COVID-19 complications. The technical name of the machine is Extra corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).

In mid-july a Gujrati man was brought to a hospital in Mumbai. He was on a ventilator. The doctors decided to shift him over to ECMO.

In the same hospital they had tried this procedure for 8-10 serious patients. All of them succumbed except this person.

The duration of treatment is for two weeks. The cost could range between ₹50k to ₹100k per day. The cost has been the limiting factor for many patients to opt for this treatment.

This patient eventually recovered from COVID-19 complications. It is believed that at least seven patients have recovered from COVID-19 complications by using ECMO all over the country.

The treating intensivist has expressed great satisfaction for able to save one soul. It’s quite rewarding experience when one patient’s life is saved.

Luke 15:7 (CJB): I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who turns to God from his sins than over ninety-nine righteous people who have no need to repent.

I admire and respect the engineers who designed this machine. Their genious efforts has become fruitful. One life is more important and precious.

Similarly in today’s scripture quote, Yeshua said that if one person repents and gets saved then there’s a great joy in the kingdom of heaven.

Defeating cancer: a true story!

Photo credit

Thousands of people loose their lives to cancers. The name of cancer is enough to scare a person to death. Diagnosis of cancer is like the pronouncing death sentence.

Some months ago I met this sister who was working in a company as a housekeeping services. I soon realised that she was a Christian. But, soon I came to know from others that she was suffering from some health issues.

I discussed with her about her health situation. She confided that it’s something related to womens monthly issue. I recommended a gynaecologist colleague. She agreed to see the doctor friend.

The doctor friend suggested her abdominal ultrasound. To her shock the radiologist gave her very bad news. They said that she has a cancer of uterus. The gynaecologist was equally shocked.

They decided to go ahead and perform a biospy. The biospy wasn’t agreeing with the radiologist. However the radiologist also had done a MRI scan. They had again emphasized that it’s a cancer.

My gynacologist friend decided to knock of the uterus to prevent any further escalation of the probable cancer. The operation was successfully completed. They sent the uterus to the pathologist.

Some days ago her histopathology report arrived. Halleluyah 🙌. There is no cancer of the uterus. Where did the cancer disappeared?

1 Peter 2:24 (CJB): He himself bore our sins in his body on the stake, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness—by his wounds you were healed.

The answer is that she was healed by the stripes of Yeshua Meshiakh. We prayed for this sister. Today she is testifying to this great miracle in her life.

Did you witnessed such healings then please do share with me. Please like, comment, and share.

We are moving!🐜

Proverbs 6:6 (CJB): Go to the ant, you lazybones!
Consider its ways, and be wise.

As I reached my kitchen, I saw tiny little guys moving in a straight line carrying something. I looked carefully! They were small red ants carrying small white eggs. See the above video of what I just noticed.

I was wondering from where they suddenly appeared and where are they going. I just realised that they were moving to another location of our appartment. How smart!

The Holy Bible has a mention of these little creatures. There is a great lesson to be learnt from them. It says that you can be very wise if you learn lessons from the life of ants.

The ants have a message to all lazy people. The ants are always very busy doing work. They have a corporate culture. Except for the Queen 👑, everyone else is working very hard. They work very hard during summer so that they lack nothing during the seasons of scarcity.

Dear Lord, teach me to be a wise worker like these ants are so that I can contribute very well to my family and community. I ask in the name of Yeshua Meshiakh.

Please share your thoughts on how we can learn lessons from God’s creation!

Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh (ה-ו-ה-י)!!!

God revealed himself to him (Moses) and told him his own personal Name. That Name in Hebrew consists of the four letters Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh (ה-ו-ה-י) and is therefore called the tetragrammaton (four-letter writing).

Complete Jewish Bible

This is a description of the Hebrew name of God in the original language of the Bible. It’s very difficult to pronounce as people out of reverence for God, didn’t utter his name. Over a period of time, they lost the exact pronounciation.

Exodus 34:6 (CJB): Adonai passed before him and proclaimed: “YUD-HEH-VAV-HEH!!! Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh [Adonai] is God, merciful and compassionate, slow to anger, rich in grace and truth;

They do recite Adonai in the places where this tetragrammaton appears. This is translated as the LORD in English. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Please do share your thoughts on this!

Don’t forget to shoot a SOS message.

Source

Everyone knows the meaning of SOS. It’s a distress call from a ship which is in danger and is in need of immediate help. Some say that it could be expanded as “Save our Ship.”

Today I came cross a news on the Twitter. Three micronasian marineers left home in a boat. The boat drifted off and diesel got exhausted.

They reached an inhabited Island Pikelot in the Pacific Ocean. These men wrote in big letters “SOS” on the sandy beach of the island. They were reported missing from their homes. One of the US airforce aircraft noticed the SOS.

Australian government rushed into action and rescued the stranded men on Sunday 2 August 2020. They were sent to their homes in due course of time.

And then, whoever calls on the name of Adonai will be saved

Acts 2:21 (CJB) (The Holy Bible)

Similarly, in our distress we can shoot SOS to the Lord. These SOS are our prayers to the Lord. The Bible says that whoever calls on the name of Adonai (God of the Bible) shall be saved.

Thanks for reading. Share your stories of SOS in the comments section.

What’s the expansion of “A.S.K.?”

ASK! I found a nice pictorial discription. It had the expansion of ASK. It was quite interesting and encouraging to me. I hope it will be encouraging to you as well.

“Keep asking, and it will be given to you; keep seeking, and you will find; keep knocking, and the door will be opened to you.”

Matthew 7:6–7 (CJB):

It’s so easy to give up on praying. The current world affairs are so discouraging, that you will be tempted to discontinue prayers.

Yeshua, told his own talmidim (disciples) not to stop asking, seeking, knocking. It’s about being persistent in our consistent prayers.

Yeshua, promised his own that he will honor the prayers of his own children. Believe that all your prayers will be answered by your Lord in his time and will. Our job is to ASK….ASK… ASK.

Do you agree with me on this?

Medicine according to Yeshua

Health worker

Matthew 9:11–12 (CJB): When the P’rushim saw this, they said to his talmidim, “Why does your rabbi eat with tax-collectors and sinners?”
12 But Yeshua heard the question and answered, “The ones who need a doctor aren’t the healthy but the sick.

The religious leaders at the time of Yeshua objected to his association with certain classes of people. They asked his talmidim (disciples) about him eating with sinners and tax collectors. These guys were snubbed by the religious leaders (Pharasees).

Yeshua, taught them his divine medicine lessons. In the physical realm only sick need a doctor, similarly in the spiritual realm the spiritually sick need a spiritual doctor, this is what he taught them.

The take home message is that those who have physical ailments need worldy doctor. The spiritually sick people would need a spiritual doctor.

Who could be their spiritual doctor?

Bring Healing to our land!🤲

Our planet and nation is severeley affected by COVID-19 pandemic. There is lot of fear and apprehension which has gripped the people of our world. We are expectantly waiting for relief and healing from COVID-19 pandemic.

2 Chronicles 7:13–14 (CJB): If I shut up the sky, so that there is no rain; or if I order locusts to devour the land; or if I send an epidemic of sickness among my people;
14 then, if my people, who bear my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land.

The God of Hebrews gave warning to his people. He said that disobedience to his commandments would invite severe punishment from their God.

He said that he would send drought, locusts, and epidemic to their land. This punishment could be reversed if they fulfill certain conditions.

The Adonai God said that, “if” my people would take some corrective actions in their lives that would bring relief from their troubles.

The most important thing God required from his own children was humbleness, prayerfulness, seeking God’s favour, repentance from evil ways, then God promised to heed to their cry.

God of the Bible promised to answer their prayer. He gives assurance of forgiveness of sins. He is willing to bring healing to our sick land.

Dear God, heal our planet Earth and our nation. We are willing to mend our ways. We seek your face, please hear our cry! We seek forgiveness and healing. Heal us and take away all the pestilence from us. This we pray in the name of Yeshua Meshiakh. 🙇

Not so Rosy talk 🌹

Pink rose flower

Who doesn’t like a rose flower? Everyone loves it. Sight of a rose flower brings refreshment to our souls. That’s why florists make lot of money by selling them.

You can impress anyone with a rose flower. Roses make our lives beautiful. Roses of different colors have different meanings. I use to impress my wife with a rose bud before our marriage.😜

I have two rose plants in my balcony. Each has bloomed one rose. One is pitch and another pink. You can see one of the rose in the above photograph and pitch one down below.

Pitch color rose

Roses help to decorate vases. They can be worn by a lady in her hair. Roses are symbolic of human glory and beauty.

Roses symbolises our prime years of life. We humans have our glorious days. Our successful days can be likened to a full bloomed rose. The roses with the passing of time undergo decay.

“For
all humanity is like grass,
all its glory is like a wildflower—
the grass withers, and the flower falls off”

A withered rose flower

After few weeks, look at the state of that glorious and beautiful rose. When the rose fades away, it no longer looks like a rose. The dead rose has no resemblance to its former glory.

In my today’s Bible quote, the author likens the human glory to the glory of a flower. The flower dries and looses its glory forever. One day that flower will fall and forgotten forever.

That’s why, it’s not a good idea to have pride. If you are successful, then don’t look down on others. You should humble yourself if God has lifted you up. If God can lift you up, similarly he can pull you down if you become arrogant and full of pride.

Like👍 it if you agree. Comment✍️ if you disagree. Forward ⏩it if you are blessed. Be blessed in the name of Yeshua Meshiakh.

Heal me!

What would you give in return for healing? You would agree with me that health supersedes everything else in life. When we know that our health is at stake then we are willing to exchange it with anything more valuable.

Health is taken for granted until its lost. Health is wealth, wealth is not Health. When you are healthy then you can be wealthy. We try to earn wealth at the cost of health.

“because I am Adonai your healer.”

Exodus 15:26 (CJB)

While we are neglecting our health, we don’t realize that we are gradually moving from healthful to diseased status. It’s a gradual subtle journey. Being healthy is a labourious task. Becoming diseased is very simple. Just don’t do anything, you will be sick one day!

Today, I have citated a tiny quotation from the Holy Bible. It’s the Adonai God of the Bible speaking to his people Israel. He encouraged them that he is their Healer.

When we are healthy we don’t think about the Healer, however sickness reminds us of our need for a healer.

God told them in advance that I am the God who heals you. We have two kinds of diseases, spiritual and physical. The worldly doctors can cure physical ailments. The God of the Bible can heal both.

Thanks for visiting and reading. If you agree, then please respond “Amen.” If you disagree, then please leave your comment. 🤗👍

Blessings in the name of Yeshua Meshiakh. 🙇
