LIFE IN THE WORD:
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:15). God’s Word is what you need for your spiritual growth and development. It’s what you need for a balanced life of continual victory and success that you’ve received in Christ.This is so because you were created by the Word of God, which means the Word of God is your life; it’s your source, and every living thing must be connected to its source to survive. Man’s body was made from the dust of the ground, so man has to feed on what’s cultivated from the ground to survive.Man, however, is a spirit, and the spirit of man wasn’t made from the dust of the ground; the spirit of man came from God’s Spirit, and was created with the Word of God. You, therefore, must continually feed on God’s Word to live triumphantly in life. Acts 20:32 says, “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace,which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.” It’s important to note here that the scripture wasn’t referring to everyone in the world, but to God’s children. The Apostle Paul says the Word is able to build you up, because that’s where you came from; that’s your origin; you’re born of the incorruptible seed of the Word; therefore, you must remain connected to the Word to live your best. Through the Word, you condition your life for victory every day, such that no matter the circumstances you find yourself in, you’re always triumphant. 2 Corinthians 2:14 says, “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.” PRAYER: Dear Father, I thank you for my origin in you ; I'm born of the incorruptible Word of God ; therefore, I'm immune to the corrupting influence of my world , and I'm indestructible . The Word of God is working in me producing in and through me, the result of its message,  in Jesus 'Name. Amen

"Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.” – Romans13:7. For all the people i scripture teaches some basic (rules) duties to be adhered.  When we follow it our nation will be blessed?  We too will be blessed.  Let us see what are those duties for us to do? Paying Tax: (Matthew 17:24-27) The biggest problem in our nation is black money. Though many norms and actions followed against the demolishment of black money, tax evasion and false accounts, accumulated black money prevails the hover of destruction of our nation without the way of solution.  When we pay the tax regularly our nation will be surely blessed.  Don’t we know this, Jesus paid the tax for his disciples and himself.Honoring the authorities: (1Peter 2:17) The scripture teaches that all the government under the control of God, and we have to honor them.  It is silly to say that, “I am God’s child and I will not honor anyone.” Even if the person in authority is not good and subject to bribery we must honor him, not by outward look but inwardly from heart.  But when authorities or laws pass against, the gospelization / the gospel, we need not obey them.  Conversion bill should not block or hinder us.  Once, the chief of the priest threatened St.Paul not to preach the gospel.  Then St.Paul declared that “obeying God is rather better than man” (Acts 5:29). Prayer for the nation: (1Timo.2:1,2)Praise and prayer for all men is our duty.  Supplications, prayers, intercessions and giving thanks be made for all men for kings and all are in authority to lead a quiet life and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.  When we travel in Train, let us pray and praise for the authorities of railways and workers.  Let us pray for the border security forces and military force that guard our nations land mark.  As for the costly buildings foundation is so important. Likewise, we Christians are so essential to pray for our nation Bharat/India for peaceful life. Only God fearing and obedience to God will live a better citizen obeying to government. Sweet Independent day greetings to all!

I AM FULFILLED
John 6:35 : And JESUS said to them, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to ME shall never hunger, and he who believes in ME shall never thirst.*Nothing will ever make a man fulfilled until he receives JESUS.* Man is never satisfied, no matter how much is available. We are always chasing money, fame, position, qualification, food, power, etc and never get satisfied. Many thought acquiring so much money or wealth could make them fulfilled, but the more they try, the more frustrated they become (1Tim 6:10). Others thought by getting married or obtaining a good grade in school, they will be okay but ended up disappointed. If you have eaten so much and you are still hungry, I recommend you taste JESUS. *Come and see the works of GOD:...(Ps 66:5)* HE is the bread of life which when eaten, you won't  go hungry again, wow!! *In HIM alone is life (John 1:4).* If only you will allow HIM into your life today, you will be fulfilled. *JESUS is that bread of life that gives us strength, healing, power and joy to go through our daily challenges, even through the most difficult times of our lives .* HE is the answer to all your questions and challenges. If only you will let HIM in, you will smile again. I pray that GOD grants you the grace to receive this bread of life today in the name of JESUS. Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life,...(John 6:27)_

THE HEALING POWER OF POSITIVE CONFESSION: Joel 3:10 KJV :Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Proverbs 18:21 KJV , Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Matthew 12:37 KJV : For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.There is healing power in positive confession. Words have power. They can hurt and they can bless. But the power of words reaches much further than the impact they make on our emotions. Our words have supernatural power—power that changes circumstances and shapes destinies. In fact, it is our unique ability to choose and speak words that distinguishes man from the rest of God’s creation.Man is created in God’s image and it was not just thoughts but words that God used to create us and the universe in which we live. When He said, “Light be,” light was. Words are the way God works. Hebrews 11:3 describes this operating principle of creation this way: “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God , so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” Words are spiritual; they carry power. Proverbs 12:14 tells us that we shall be satisfied with good by the fruit of our mouths. How does positive confession bring healing?  Our confession reveal what we truly believe. Jesus said ''out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh- Matthew 12:34 David made a positive confession which revealed that he believed in God and he brought down Goliath. The Bible says declare thou, that thou mayest be justified. What have you said concerning your situation? Everything is waiting for your response because your words are powerful. Our faith is built by positive confession. Saying what God has said builds our faith in God and where faith is found, God is present. Declaring God's word is transferring the battle to Him to handle. Confession is not denying physical facts and temporary circumstances. It is declaring what God, who never changes, has said about the outcome and standing in faith until all temporary conditions line up with His eternal declaration. The centurion said ''speak the Word only and my servant shall be made whole.'' And in that selfsame hour his servant was healed. This is my counsel: Speak the Word of God only!

The Minister's Family : And thou shalt put themm upon Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him; and shalt anoint them, and consecrate them, and sanctify them, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office. Exodus-28:41. Home Life of Minister to Exemplify Message.-- God designs that in his home life the teacher of the Bible shall be an exemplification of the truths that he teaches. What a man is has greater influence than what he says. Piety in the daily life will give power to the public testimony. Patience, consistency, and love will make an impression on hearts that sermons fail to reach. If properly carried on, the training of the children of a minister will illustrate the lessons he gives in the desk. But if, by the wrong education he has given his children, a minister shows his incapacity to govern and control, he needs to learn that God requires him to properly discipline the children given him before he can do his duty as shepherd of the flock of God. His First Duty Is to His Children.--The minister's duties lie around him, nigh and afar off; but his first duty is to his children. He should not become so engrossed with his outside duties as to neglect the instruction which his children need. He may look upon his home duties as of lesser importance, but in reality they lie at the very foundation of the well-being of individuals and of society. To a large degree the happiness of men and women and the success of the church depend upon home influence.  Nothing can excuse the minister for neglecting the inner circle for the larger circle outside. The spiritual welfare of his family comes first. In the day of final reckoning God will inquire what he did to win to Christ those whom he took the responsibility of bringing into the world. Great good done for others cannot cancel the debt that he owes to God to care for his own children.The Magnitude of the Minister's Influence.--Ministers' children are in some cases the most neglected children in the world, for the reason that the father is with them but little, and they are left to choose their own employment and amusement.Great as are the evils of parental unfaithfulness under any circumstances, they are tenfold greater when they exist in the families of those appointed as teachers of the people. When these fail to control their own households, they are, by their wrong example, misleading many. Their guilt is as much greater than that of others as their position is more responsible.

 WHAT SHALL I DO NOW? :
Come now, let us settle the matter, says the LORD. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow, though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.(Isaiah 1:18). What shall I do now, was the wise question the lost son asked himself. The same God who created life in you can be trusted with the details of your life. Your decision, like that of the lost son in the parable of the lost son, is very important as to what you get from God. Yes, it is a foolish thing to have wandered away, but now, take the wise decision of coming home, like the lost son, because you still have Him *(God)* waiting for your return. He says, Return to me and I will turn to you. He does not ignore those who come back to, and depend on Him. He hasn't given up on you. Do you know that your return will definitely and permanently stop the humiliation you are passing through in the hands of God's enemies, just like the lost son experienced: a Jew stooping to touch and feed pigs, eventually longing for their feed because of penury? Don't be totally debased before taking the wise decision of returning to your waiting loving Father in Heaven.You would have been back home long ago, if not that you have not been sensitive enough. He has been doing everything possible for your return. Positively respond to His search light, beaming at you. He is ready to welcome you. Have this assurance that He is with you in whatever situation, wherever you are. Only let your attitude be to acknowledge that He loves you. Come back to Bethel.PRAYER POINTS:1.Father, open my eyes to those areas where I need to make amendments in my ways.2..Lord, please visit those who have deviated from their faith in You and help them come back to Your fold by Your saving power, in Jesus' name.3.Lord, move our churches and ministers to be more vehement in emphasising the indispensability and irreplaceability of holy living to please God.

THAT CUP NEVER PASSES OVER:
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world_ (John 16:33) Jesus Christ was sent from God for the particular mission that He had known before He came into the world. He was to die a shameful death on the Cross, for the sins He did not commit. He was to pay the debt He did not owe. He groaned in the garden of Gethsemane that if it was possible, God should allow the cup to pass over Him. The cup in this context could mean tribulations, life challenges, test, problems or shame that one must pass through in life. There are some cups that will never pass over a child of God, regardless of the quantity or quality of prayer the Christian might pray against such. He or she must certainly drink from such, even as Jesus Christ Himself drank from it.As children of the heavenly Father, we should know that the purpose of the cup is not to punish, ridicule, weary, or destroy us, but to bring out God's glory in us *(cf. John 9:1-5)*. Jesus was glorified after taking from the cup. We  would also only be glorified, when we endure and take from the cup that is set before us. Brethren, our attitude in times like this, should be Let Your will be done, oh Lord, as we all know that He knows what is best for us. We should equally pray for the grace and strength for sustenance in such a time. PRAYER POINTS: 1 .Lord, I thank You for all that You have enabled me to pass through in life with Your unfailing Grace.2.Lord, please give me the strength and Grace to overcome the God-ordained turbulent periods of life, and emerge glorious in all of them.3.Father Lord, help those who are facing difficult time to overcome, without wavering, in Jesus' name.
