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.

True wealth!

Recently a horrendous incident took place in our state. It shook the whole state. A person was hacked to death by three men in broad daylight.

Around 12 noon, the news channels started reporting a broad daylight murder in a busy section of the city. Everyone was shocked about this development.

No sooner, video of the incident began to be circulated over the social media. It was quite upsetting to watch the culprits running away after stabbing and shooting the victim.

It was more surprising and disgusting that people instead of saving the wounded, they were busy recording this event. What a shameful act it was!

Also, the killers were seen to slip away so easily without any person intercepting them. I was angry and my blood was boiling within me.

It was clear that the motive for this murder might have been a failed robbery plan. Surprisingly, they didn’t rob anything from the shop.

It was a jewelry Shop. The owner lost his life. We are living in such a horrific world. People are killing each other for the perishable wealth. These murders were apprehended by the police by next day morning.

They might get punished for their crime, however how will they escape the wrath of God. May God comfort the bereaved. May God grant justice to the victim of this crime.

Luke 9:25 (CJB): What will it benefit a person if he gains the whole world but destroys or forfeits his own life?

We have to realise that our soul is greater treasure than the whole wealth in the world. By placing our faith in Yeshua, we can secure the destiny of our future.

Thanks for reading ❤️

Remembering, my mentor!

Mr and Mrs R S Mirajkar from my lens.

This is my tribute to the well known Bible teacher of this century who worked among the Marathi speaking section of India.

Mr Mirajkar was raised by a missionary woman (Miss H H Robertson) from England who was mother to many motherless for 57 years in India.

Tomb stone of Miss H H Robertson

At the age of 12 years, Mr Mirajkar had an encounter with Yeshua (Jesus). He accepted Yeshua as his Lord and saviour. He was a good student.

After his graduation from the college, he worked as an teacher at a college in Belgaum. Mean while he got married to his beautiful bride.

After few years of teaching at the college, he felt compelled to leave his job to go into full time ministry. He began his journey as a freelance Bible Teacher.

He worked mostly among the Marathi speaking Christian communities. He wrote many Christian books. He edited song books. Wrote Christian evangelical tracts.

He was instrumental in helping me to give my life to Yeshua Messaih. He has been my mentor from my childhood. He never misguided me.

Mr Mirajkar went to be with the Lord at the age of 90 years. We met him in December 2019. He was loosing his memory. He couldn’t recognise many people.

When I visited him, his countenance brightened. He recognised me. He spoke with us for almost over one hour. He was still enthusiastic about serving the Lord.

He expressed his exasperation that lot of work is left to do and he is unable to complete. He vividly told me to continue to serve the Lord.

He confirmed that I have the gift of teaching. He told me to carry forward that skill.

On 28th August 2020, I got the news that Mr Mirajkar was admitted to a mission hospital. He was in a comatose condition. Doctors, tried their best. Mr Mirajkar regained his consciousness for short time.

Afterwards, he went into a deep sleep. His departure was very peaceful. He ascended into the glory. The Lord and his angels must have welcomed their champion.

According to our belief, Mr Mirajkar must be having a great fellowship with his Lord. What a great joy it is to have such godly people in our lives.

Adeus Mr Mirajkar. We shall surely meet in the kingdom of God. Halleluyah.

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.

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 🙌🤗

Defeating cancer: a true story!

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.

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?
