Open thou mine eyes.... Lord... meditation John chapter 9:24-34




1. Again they called the blind man and enquired of him telling him to give God the praise and they said that CHRIST was a sinner. ( V24)
2. The man answered them that he know not whether Christ is a sinner or not but he knows that his eyes were opened and he can see. (V25)
3. Again they asked him what Christ did to him and how he opened his eyes. (V26)
4. For this the man told them that he has told them before many times and then why they want to hear it Again? He asked them if they also want to become his disciples.
5. They said that he is a disciple of Christ but they are the disciples of Moses. V(28)
6. They said They know that God spoke to Moses but they do not know where Christ came from. (V29)
7. He replied to them why they are marvelling when Christ opened his eyes though no one knew where he is. (V30)
8. He said though God does not hear the sinners he will hear to the worshippers of God and the one that does his will. (V31)
9. Since the world began we have never heard of any man opening the eyes of the one born blind. (V32)
10. The man said if Christ is not of God he could not do anything.  (V33)
11. They answered to him that he is born of sin and is trying to teach then and cast him away. (V34)

 LIFE APPLICATION:

Today I am lead in my spirit to meditate on what happens when God opens our eyes. If our eyes are opened our lives are changed. Let us look into some scriptures for better understanding.

1. If our eyes are opened then we will able to comprehend who Christ is.

They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.
John:9:17

2. If our eyes are opened we cannot stop testifying about Christ.

He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight.
John:9:11

3. If our eyes are opened we will become a disciple of Christ waiting to follow him.

Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples.
John:9:28

4. If our eyes are opened we can never say that CHRIST is a sinner and we will be able to glorify him as Lord.

Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth.
John:9:31

And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
John:9:38

5. If our eyes are opened we will be able to see the good in people.

He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
John:9:25

6. When our eyes are opened our eyes will see the well of water in the dry and thirsty land. Water here denotes the Spirit and the word of God.

And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.
Genesis:21:19

7. When our eyes are opened we can see the blessings God has for us and not the curse that follows us.

He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:
Numbers:24:4

How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O Israel!
Numbers:24:5

8. When God opens our eyes we can see the mighty angelic protection God has kept for us. ... that we will not feel alone anymore.

And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
2 Kings:6:17

9. When God opens our eyes we will be able to behold the wondrous things from the law.

Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
Psalm:119:18

10. Sometimes God wants to touch our eyes the second time. Or else we will not be able to see a man as a human... but when our eyes are opened we are able to see people as they are ought to be seen.

And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.
Mark:8:23

And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
Mark:8:24

After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.
Mark:8:25.

Dear Child of God.... it is time for us to examine ourselves. Let us lay ourselves at the altar and  allow the spirit of God to purge our eyes a new.... Let the spirit of God minister unto our hearts furthermore. Amen.

The God of Sabbath- Meditation John chapter 9:11-23

 Today's meditation John chapter 9:11-23.


1. When the neighbours asked the man how he got healed he said that a man called Jesus anointed his eyes with clay and asked him to go and wash it in the pool of Siloam and when he did so he was healed. (V11)
2. They asked him where
Christ was for which he said he knew not. (V12)
3. They brought him to the Pharisees (V13)
4. The day when Jesus healed the man was the Sabbath day . (V14)
5. The Pharisees asked the man again how he got healed and the man said that CHRIST put clay in his eyes and he washed and he saw. (V15)
6. Then there was confusion among the Pharisees that he is not God as he did not keep the Sabbath day while others said if he is a sinner how he can do such miracles and there was division among them. (V16)
7. They asked the blind man himself what he thinks about Christ for which he said he is a prophet.  (V17)
8. The Jews still did not believe him and called his parents of the man that received his sight. (V18)
9. They said that he is their son who was born blind, But they don't know how he got healed or who opened his eyes and that they can ask him themselves as he is of age. (V19, 21)
10. They said he is of age and to ask him about it because they feared the Jews as if anyone confess Christ, the Jews agreed that they will be put out of the synagogue.   (V22, 23)

 LIFE APPLICATION:

The Godly Sabbath:

Many of us struggle to find rest for our souls. We run and run and run... till we are drained... to the end. This is the reason God gave us the law of Sabbath that we will have a complete  day of rest and we make that day holy for the Lord.

And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.
Exodus:16:23

Six days may work be done; but in the seventh is the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth any work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
Exodus:31:15

This was given as a commandment through the law of Moses.

It is this law that the Pharisees felt offended with when Christ healed the blind on the Sabbath.

Now let us meditate on what it means by a Christ like Sabbath... that will give rest to our weary souls.

Why do we need rest?

Most of the time we get so weary of brokenness. We drench our bed with tears.

I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.
Psalm:6:6

2. Bitterness of soul makes our soul weary.

My soul is weary of my life; I will leave my complaint upon myself; I will speak in the bitterness of my soul.
Job:10:1

3.  We become weary when we labour in vain.

Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; and the people shall labour in vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall be weary.
Jeremiah:51:58

4. We weary ourselves for vanity.

Behold, is it not of the LORD of hosts that the people shall labour in the very fire, and the people shall weary themselves for very vanity?
Habakkuk:2:13

5. We weary ourselves to commit iniquity.

And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity.
Jeremiah:9:5

Our God is a God of rest for every weary soul.

1. God said to Moses that he will give him rest.

And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.
Exodus:33:14

When God's presence go with us... he will give us rest.

2. Sabbath according to the commandment a way of giving us rest.

But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the LORD: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.
Leviticus:25:4

3. God gives us rest amidst our enemies.


And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand.
Joshua:21:44

4. We rest in hope

Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
Psalm:16:9

5. We have rest in our Lord.

Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
Psalm:37:7

6. There is a rest for the people of God in Christ.

For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.
Hebrews:4:8

There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
Hebrews:4:9

7. The yoke of Christ is much lighter and he gives rest to our souls.


Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Matthew:11:28


Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
Matthew:11:29

This is why Christ said that he is also the Lord of the Sabbath day....

For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.
Matthew:12:8


And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath:
Mark:2:27

This is why Paul writes to Colossians that we cannot be judged based on traditions.

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
Colossians:2:16

Christ himself is our rest. May our souls find it's rest in the Lord of the Sabbath... Amen.

Am I Blind? Meditation John chapter 9:1-10

Today's meditation John chapter 9: 1-10

 1. As Jesus passed by he saw a man who was blind from birth. (V1)
2. Disciples of Christ asked him whose sin was it that the man was blind, his or his parents? (V2)
3. Jesus told them that neither his sin or his parents, but he was blind that the works of God will  be manifested through him.(v3)
4. Jesus said he must work the works of the father when it is day as the  night is coming when no man can work. (V4)
5. Christ said as long as he is in the world, he is the light of the world. (V5)
6. After speaking these words Jesus spat on the ground, made a clay of the spittle and anointed the eyes of the man with the clay. (V6)
7.  He told him to go and wash in the pool of Siloam meaning sent. He went in obedience and washed and came back seeing. (V7)
8. The neighbours looking at him said if he the person who was blind and sitting and begging?(V8)
9. Some said that it is he And some said it is not. But the man said that it is he. (V9)
10. They all asked him then how his eyes were opened. (V10)

LIFE APPLICATION:

And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
John:9:7

ARE WE BLIND:

This is a good question to ask of ourselves today. AM I BLIND... of course not physically, but are we blind to the things of the Spirit? This is a good thought to ponder and examine ourselves.

1. For the blind everything is dark around them.

But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.
1 John:2:11

If we hate our brother we are not walking in the light but in darkness And the darkness has blinded our eyes.

2. Our minds can be blinded by the God of the world that we cannot believe in Christ and his light cannot shine in us.

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
2 Corinthians:4:4

3. When we sin against God, we do not know where we stumble in the noon day:

We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noon day as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.
Isaiah:59:10

And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
Zephaniah:1:17

4. If we lack attributes like virtue, faith, knowledge, temperance, faithfulness and godliness, we can be short sighted.

But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
2 Peter:1:9

5. Taking bribe can blind our eyes:

Behold, here I am: witness against me before the LORD, and before his anointed: whose ox have I taken? or whose ass have I taken? or whom have I defrauded? whom have I oppressed? or of whose hand have I received any bribe to blind mine eyes therewith? and I will restore it you.
1 Samuel:12:3

Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.
Deuteronomy:16:19

What to do when we realise we are spiritually blinded?

Our God is a God who heals the blind. He leads them in paths they never know.

I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
Isaiah:42:6

To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
Isaiah:42:7

And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
Isaiah:42:16

So God wants us to follow these steps Today.

1. Acknowledge that we are blinded spiritually and ask God for help, that we might see.

Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
Revelation:3:17

I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Revelation:3:18

2. Allow God to work in those blind areas however painful and however dirty it is.

When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay.
John 9:6.

We see a creating power of God working here. The same hands that made Adam with the clay is now creating eyes with clay in the blind man.

The spit of Christ is divine. That is what when mingled with the dust of the ground has got the divine power to create. Let the same power to create work in our hearts too, that our spiritual eyes be opened too.

3. Go and wash yourselves in Siloam... meaning sent.

Here the waters of Siloam means the word of God.

Dear Child of God,
The WORD of the God has the power to cleanse. It has the power to heal and it has the power to open our eyes.

He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
Psalm:107:20

He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow.
Psalm:147:18

The WORD of GOD enlightens our eyes.

The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
Psalm:19:8

So let us go to this Siloam which God has given us, even this word of God and wash ourselves, that our eyes can see with clarity.... May God reveal himself to us more. Amen.

LIFE APPLICATION:

The great I AM

Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
John:8:58

Today, God put in my heart to share a small thought on the great I AM.
As I am writing this, my heart shivers as I ponder the greatness of our Almighty God and King.

By his Grace and mercy, let me show you a glimpse of this great I AM from the scriptures as the way the spirit of God leads me to do.

This word "AM" is very interesting. It means it is a present tense always, and is not changed by the past or by the future.
Simply put, the word am has no tense.

This is very difficult to explain with human words, with a small mind we can comprehend with.

Let me turn into the scriptures for better enlightening.

When God tried to explain who he is to Moses, all that he could say is I AM THAT I AM.

And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
Exodus:3:14

9. God created all alone and there was no other Gods beside him.

I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.
Jeremiah:1:8

Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
Jeremiah:32:27

13. He is understanding.

Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.
Proverbs:8:14

14. He is a great king:

But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the LORD a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the LORD of hosts, and my name is dreadful among the heathen.
Malachi:1:14

Know your enemy. Meditation John chapter 8:41-50

 Today's meditation John chapter 8:41-50

1. Jesus said to them they are doing the deeds of their father. For which they replied they are not born of fornication but God is their Father. (V41)
2. Jesus said to them if God was their father they will listen to him because he came forth from his father. He did not come by himself but was sent by his father. (V42)
3. He said they cannot understand him because they cannot hear his word. (V43)
4. Christ said that their father is devil.  The lusts of their father they will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and he did not abide in truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie he speaks it of his own for he is a liar and father of lies. (V44)
5. Christ said because he tells them the truth they do not believe in him. (V45)Christ said nobody can convince him of sin but still they  do not believe in him. (V46)
6. He that is of God hears God's voice but they do not hear because they are not of God. (V47)
7. For this they said that he was a Samaritan and he has a devil (V48))
8. Jesus replied to them that he does not have a devil and he honours  his father, but they dishonor him. (V49)
9. Jesus said he never seeks his own glory and it is God who seeks and judges. (V50)

LIFE APPLICATION:

Today we are going to meditate on the topic
KNOW YOUR ENEMY.

The WORD of GOD says,

 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Ephesians:6:12

Dear Child of God, I
Want you to realise today that there is a unseen world around us that always wage a war against our members.

It is not the neighbour or the boss whom we see, our enemy. But there is something more deeper... there are unseen principalities, powers, spiritual wickedness that wrestle with us.... they rub on our bodies and our souls.

This is the kingdom of darkness and they have a king... the Devil. This is what CHRIST refers in V44,

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
John:8:44

Once we have accepted Christ as our Lord and our God we are transformed into a marvellous new life and the enemy has lost his authority over our us.

But still, as long as we are in the flesh... we will have to fight him as the children of God. So it will be better for us to KNOW The ENEMY as Paul said,

I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
1 Corinthians:9:26

Let us see some attributes of the Devil in our meditation today:

A. He works in the children of disobedience:

The Prince of air is the spirit that works in children of disobedience.

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
Ephesians:2:2

B. The Devil is the Father of lusts. (V44)

Devil operates in lust. God operates in love.
Let me explain a little on lust and love.

* the word of God says,

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
1 John:2:16

Lust is of the eyes and of the flesh. It uses the eye gates. But Love is divine and is of God, poured into our spirits.

Let us see some biblical examples for lust:

1. Devil lusted the throne of God.

By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:
Ezekiel:28:5

Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God;
Ezekiel:28:6

2. The Devil made Eve to lust after the forbidden fruit.

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Genesis:3:6

3. Lust makes us want things at whatever cost even if it is forbidden, even it is illegal and even if it mean to murder someone.

But Love is patient and submits to God's will and time.

And it came to pass, when Jezebel heard that Naboth was stoned, and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give thee for money: for Naboth is not alive, but dead.
1 Kings:21:15

Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.
2 Samuel:12:9

There are many more examples of how the devil operates in lust. Dear Child of God! Commit yourself to walk according to the spirit and you will not fulfil the lusts of the flesh.

I would suggest to keep every of our wants and wishes to be kept at the altar. If it burns and gone forever it is lust...
 But if stays with you it is love.... painful but safe.

C. The Devil is a liar and a FATHER of lies: (V44)

Here the enemy works through our ear gates. He speaks lies in our ears till the truth of CHRIST Is obscured in our hearts.

One of his mighty weapon is slander. He makes people slander against us and he makes us slander against others too.

For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.
Psalm:31:13

He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool.
Proverbs:10:18

And the men, which Moses sent to search the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander upon the land,
Numbers:14:36

2. He condemns:
It can be people condemning us or we condemning ourselves. CONDEMNATION and ACCUSATIONS are not of God.

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
Revelation:12:10

With lies he makes the heart of the righteous sad:

Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:
Ezekiel:13:22

With lies he can put fear in our hearts; with lies he can disturb our peace.; with lies he can bring enmity among brethren...

Dear Child of God! Are you a victim of lies of the enemy ? Recognise and fight it with truth and the truth will set you free.

Identify and cast down every imaginations that are sowed in you by the enemy that you will not be an easy target for the enemy.

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
2 Corinthians:10:5

Let us learn to bring every thought of ours under captivity to the obedience of CHRIST and we will walk over the enemy in this area too.

D. The other important character of the Devil is that He is a Murderer. 
He kills and destroys.

He can carry out this mission in the form of diseases, or in the form of witchcraft or in the form of hatred or any other.

 We thank God for the blood of Christ that has been shed as an atonement.

This blood of Christ protects us from such viles of the enemy.

For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.
Exodus:12:23

There is a secret and a quiet place where we can hide into.
That is the shadow of the almighty even his sanctuary.

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Psalm:91:1

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
Psalm:91:4

This is the place the eyes of the enemy can never find us.

Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.
Job:28:21

Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.
Job:28:22

God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.
Job:28:23

The Lord himself shall keep us from all evil. He will deliver our souls... He himself will keep us safe from the snares of the enemy.


The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
Psalm:121:7

Let the Lord's prayer be ours today.... that we will be safe each day...

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
Matthew:6:13

May God bless you!

The Truth will set you free.. Meditation John 8:31-40

1. Jesus said to those who believed in him that if we continue believing in the word of the God then we are his disciples. (V31)
2. Christ said when we know the truth the truth will make us free. (V32)
3. For this the Jews said they were the seed of Abraham and they were not under bondage to any man. They asked him why they are telling them to become free. (V33)
4. Jesus said to them that whoever commits a sin they are servants of sin. (V34)
5. The servant cannot stay in the house forever but the son can. (V35)
6. Hence if the son shall make us free we are indeed free. (V36)
7. Jesus told the Jews that though they were of Abraham's seed, still they  seek to kill Christ because his word has no place in them. (V37)
8. Jesus said he does things of his father but they are doing things of their father. (V38)
9. For this they said Abraham was their father. For this Christ said they will do the works of Abraham if they were his children. ( v39)
10. Christ told them then why do they seek to kill him who speak to them the words of God when Abraham never did so. (V40)

 LIFE APPLICATION 1:
FREEDOM IN CHRIST:
Today's meditation help us to realise how we are bound and how we are set free through the truth. (V34)

SIN and it's consequences:

Dear Child of God! Sin is a dangerous disease than cancer. It can make us its servant. It can get us bound... and make us to end up in eternal damnation. Do not play with sin. Sin has a potential to get you into a deep bondage.
SIN brings curse and curse brings death.

A. Sin does not give us rest. Our bones become  restless because of sin.

There is no soundness in my flesh because of thine anger; neither is there any rest in my bones because of my sin.
Psalm:38:3

B. If we sin against God we shall die.

Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
Ezekiel:3:20

C. We are destroying our own soul when we sin.

But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.
Proverbs:6:32

Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth it not.
Proverbs:29:24

D. Sin is alluring; but at last it bites like a serpent.

Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.
Proverbs:23:31

At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.
Proverbs:23:32

E. One sin can lead to many sins and end us up in a mess.

Thine eyes shall behold strange women, and thine heart shall utter perverse things.
Proverbs:23:33

Yea, thou shalt be as he that lieth down in the midst of the sea, or as he that lieth upon the top of a mast.
Proverbs:23:34

F. Sin is addictive. It will make you want it more till you are destroyed completely. 

They have stricken me, shalt thou say, and I was not sick; they have beaten me, and I felt it not: when shall I awake? I will seek it yet again.
Proverbs:23:35

G. Sin operates in darkness:

Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.
Proverbs:9:17

But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.
Proverbs:9:18

The WORD of GOD says the man who sins is a slave to sin. The wages of sin is death. But Christ came to give us life and life in abundance.


For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans:6:23

The redemption work of Christ:

Dear Child of God! How much ever your life is a mess. Christ came to set the captives free.

He came down to heaven only to heal your broken heart and heal your aching wounds. He is concerned of you to build you up again.

The spirit of God filled Christ without measure that we that are captives and are bound are set free.

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
Isaiah:61:1

Christ has manifested that he can take away all our sins.
And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
1 John:3:5

This is what CHRIST said whom the son sets free they are free indeed. If we know the truth the truth will set us free.

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
John:8:36

LIFE APPLICATION: 2
BECOMING DISCIPLES of GOD:

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
John:8:31

Here below are some marks and traits of true disciples of God.

A. If we continue in the word of God we are the disciples of God.

If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
John:8:31

B. We are disciples of CHRIST when we love one another.

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
John:13:35

C. We become disciples of CHRIST when we give more fruits for his glory.

Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
John:15:8

D. How CHRIST is so will be his disciples.

It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?
Matthew:10:25

E. Disciples carry their cross to follow Christ.

And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
Luke:14:27

Shortly, disciple is a person who sits at the feet of his master each day to learn from him and to follow him wherever he goes.

So once we are out of our sins through the power of the cross, God invites us to walk in the freedom as being disciples of Christ, taking his nature on us.


So this is how the series goes.

1. Allow the spirit of God to convict you of your sins.

2. Repent and ask the blood of Christ to cleanse you.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
1 John:1:7

3. Believe and be immersion baptised as a symbol of your repentance and regeneration.

And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;
Luke:3:3

4. Be a part of a spirit filled church which will nourish and help you sustain this new freedom you have found in Christ.

5. Continue in his word as CHRIST said being his disciple with a renewed mind.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Romans:12:2

May the good Lord lead you through these stages as you work up the salvation of your souls.
Amen.

Never Alone..... Meditation John 8:21-30

1. Jesus said to them that he is going his way and that they shall look for him but will not find him, but will die in their sins. He also said that where he goes nobody can come. (V21)
2. The Jews said if Jesus will kill himself as he told them where he is going no one can come. ( V22)
3. Jesus said unto them that he is from above. But they are from the world. He told them that he is not of the world. (V23)
4. Christ said that they will die in their sins. If they believe not that jesus is the christ that will die in their sins.  (V24)
5. Then asked him who he was and Christ said he was the same whom he said unto them from the beginning. (V25)
6. Jesus said he has many things against them to judge, but his father is true, and he speaks of those things he heard from him. (V26)
7. They did not understand that he was talking to them about his father. (V27)
8. Then Christ said that once he had been lifted up then they shall understand who he is and he did not do anything by himself but what his father taught him to speak. (V28)
9. Jesus said that his father is always with him and he had not left him alone, for he does all things to please him. (V29)
10. Many people believed in him when he spoke this words. (V30)

 LIFE APPLICATION :

And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
John:8:29

Many of us go through periodic times of loneliness. We feel lost and lonely. We put our trust in man and end up in more trouble.

Loneliness kills. We don't find a companion who cares for us. We cannot identify ourselves with any others. No one is there to understand our deep inside feelings.

Most of all.... We feel we are ALL ALONE.

Worst is when we are to do a whole lot of things ..... Alone.

 When burdens press our shoulders and we don't have anyone to lift those burdens up.

Dear Child of God,
The WORD of GOD is coming to you. Let us see how to handle loneliness God's way.

Some biblical examples :
Let us see some of the experiences and feeling of loneliness of great men of God in the Bible.

David and loneliness:

Let us read a few scriptures that portray loneliness in the life of David.

A. I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.
Psalm:102:6

I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.
Psalm:102:7

He portrays himself as a pelican in the wilderness, as an owl in the desert, a sparrow sitting alone on the house top, and worst of all as a dead man forgotten by everyone and as a broken useless vessel.

I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.
Psalm:31:12

B. The experience of Elijah the prophet:

And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
1 Kings:19:10

Elijah felt so lonely that he was the only one left in the multitude of the prophets.

C. There were many others who went through the dark paths of loneliness.

A. Joseph was put in the pit. 

And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it.
Genesis:37:24

B. Jeremiah was put in a dungeon.

Then took they Jeremiah, and cast him into the dungeon of Malchiah the son of Hammelech, that was in the court of the prison: and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And in the dungeon there was no water, but mire: so Jeremiah sunk in the mire.
Jeremiah:38:6

C. Job cried out but no one heard him.

Behold, I cry out of wrong, but I am not heard: I cry aloud, but there is no judgment.
Job:19:7

D. What more..... Jesus himself was left alone to die on the cross.

And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down.
Mark:15:36

Dear Child of God,
Loneliness is piercingly painful. Let us see now from the scriptures some promises of what God tells us .... to speak when we feel lonely.
The WORD of GOD says,

1. REMEMBER THAT YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN BY GOD:

 We are not forgotten by God. The whole world can forget us. We may be left alone. We may say that even GOD himself has forgotten us.

But we have an heavenly father who can never forget us as we are carved in the very palm of his hands.

But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me.
Isaiah:49:14

Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.
Isaiah:49:15

Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.
Isaiah:49:16

He has formed and made us and we are not forgotten by him.

Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for thou art my servant: I have formed thee; thou art my servant: O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me.
Isaiah:44:21

2. This great God not only remembers us but also tell us that he is with us and not to fear for he is their to help us.

For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
Isaiah:41:13


Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;
Isaiah:43:5

 3. HE NOT ONLY HELPS US BUT ALSO FIGHTS OUR BATTLES:

Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.
Isaiah:54:4

4. HE SHALL GIVE US REST AND WE SHALL NOT BE AFRAID ANYMORE

But fear not thou, O my servant Jacob, and be not dismayed, O Israel: for, behold, I will save thee from afar off, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and be in rest and at ease, and none shall make him afraid.
Jeremiah:46:27

5. HE WILL NEVER LEAVE US COMFORTLESS BUT WILL FILL US WITH PEACE:

I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
John:14:18

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John:14:27

6. HE WILL NEVER LEAVE US ALONE TILL HE ACCOMPLISH WHAT HE HAS PROMISED FOR US.

And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.
Genesis:28:15

Let  us therefore Learn how to make a good company of the Lord by taking these promises for ourselves.
David took strength from the Lord. He says,

But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.
Psalm:40:17

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Psalm:23:4

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm:27:1

Jesus knew that he was not alone but his father is always with him.

And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.
John:8:29

How about you dear child of God! Learn to take God's comfort and find your rest. God bless you...

Know ye the father... meditation john 8:13-20

 1. The Pharisees said that the record of CHRIST is not true as he is bearing record of himself. (V13)
2. Jesus replied unto them that his record is true though he bears it of himself as he knew where he came from and where he goes though others can never say where he comes from and where he goes. (V14)
3. He told them that they judge according to flesh and that he judges no man. (V15)
4. He said even if he judge his judgement is true because he is not alone but he and the father who sent him. (V16)
5. It is written in the law that the testimony of two  men are true. ( V17)
6. Jesus said he and his father bears witness about him. (V18)
7. They asked him about his father for which Christ said they neither know him nor his father. For if they know him they will know the father too. (V19)
8. Jesus spoke about these words boldly but no man laid their hands on him as his time was not come yet. (V20)

 LIFE APPLICATION:

Today I was lead in my spirit to share some thing  from the scriptures on  who our heavenly father is.

Jesus said,
Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.
John:8:19

Most of don't have a good earthly father to compare and comprehend on how our heavenly father look and feel like.

This makes us have a hazy picture of how the heavenly father is.

John writes,

I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning.

I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one.

 I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.
1 John:2:13

There are stages of spiritual maturity as revealed by John...
1. A child knowing the warmth of a father.
2. Young men who abide in the word and overcome the enemy.
3. Fathers who have known the one that is from the beginning.

Today God put in my heart to share the attributes of our heavenly father.

1. God is a father to the fatherless:

A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.
Psalm:68:5

2. He pitieth for us as we fear him.

Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
Psalm:103:13

For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
Proverbs:3:12

4. He is our father who bought us, made us and established us when we were lost in the wilderness.

Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee?
Deuteronomy:32:6

5. This father God instructs us and keep us as the Apple of his eye.

He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
Deuteronomy:32:10

6. As the eagle stirred its nest to lead it's young to fly so does the Lord does for us that we will ride on high places.

As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:
Deuteronomy:32:11

So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.
Deuteronomy:32:12


He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;
Deuteronomy:32:13

7. God himself says that he is a father to us.... whenever we go to him weeping and crying he hears us. He leads us by the way of rivers and we shall not stumble.

They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.
Jeremiah:31:9

8. Father God loves us.

For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
John:16:27

9. He is a merciful father.

Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
Luke:6:36

10. Your Father in heaven is concerned of your needs.

For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.
Luke:12:30

11. Father God loves us so much that we are called the sons of God.

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
1 John:3:1

12. God did not love us passively... He loves us passionately to give his only son Jesus Christ to die for us at the cross.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John:3:16

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
John:3:17

13. Father God has given all authority to his son Jesus CHRIST that we can reach the Father God through him.

The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand.
John:3:35

14. He is a giver of good gifts.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
James:1:17

15. He is a faithful God. He keeps his promises to generations.

Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;
Deuteronomy:7:9

 These verses are taken from the Holy Bible.  The WORD of GOD cannot lie. Dear Child of God, know the truth and the truth will set you free.

Do you feel,
1. You are not loved by God?
2. Does circumstances make you feel God does not care for You?
3. Do you think God is sitting on his throne somewhere and not concerned about You?
4. Do you think God is distant from You?
5. Do you feel your heavenly father is unjust to You?
6. Do you feel his love is conditional and you need to be more righteous to gain his love?

These are a few lies that are aimed at our hearts by the devil, arising straight from hell.

Dear Child of God.... one more secret I can tell you with great confidence. You can never be cast away from this father, when you go to him in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Christ himself was forsaken by the father that we might not be forsaken. Christ himself had paid the price of being forsaken of the father, that we have access to the throne of grace.

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
Matthew:27:46


Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Hebrews:4:16


Fight it with these scriptures.... You are a CHOSEN GENERATION... whom God himself has chosen to be a FATHER....Enjoy the warmth of the father in GOD.....  dear Child and be filled with peace everlasting.
MAY GOD REVEAL HIMSELF to you more. God bless you all.

You are free.... sin no more. Meditation John 8:1-11

 1. Jesus went to the mount of Olives. (V1)
2. Early in the morning he went to the temple and all the People came to him and he sat down and taught to them. (V2)
3. The scribes and the Pharisees brought to him a woman caught in the very act of adultery and set her in the midst. ( v3,4)
4. They said to him according to the law of Moses such a person has to be stoned. They asked him what he will do. (V4,5)
5. They said this to tempt  him that they may accuse him. But Jesus stooped down and was writing something on the ground as if he did not hear them. (V6)
6. When they continued asking him he lifted his head up and said if there is anyone without sin there among them to cast the stone first at her.  (V7)
7. He stooped down and wrote on the ground again. (V8).
8. When they heard what CHRIST said, they were convicted one by one by their own conscience And the eldest to the last left one by one, leaving Jesus alone with the woman standing in the midst. (V9)
9. Jesus lifted up and saw none asked the woman, where are those that  accused her and if no man had condemned her. (V10)
10. She said that No man condemned her. Jesus told her to go  and not to sin anymore. ( V11)
11. Then Jesus said he is the light of the world and whoever follows him shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life. (V12)

LIFE APPLICATION: 1:

1. THE MOUNT OF OLIVES:

There are a whole lot of spiritual revelations hidden in this mount of Olives.
The mount of Olives is the place in ancient history where they crushed and bruised the olives to separate the oil.

Jesus went to this mount of Olives that he may be crushed and bruised and the oil of the Holy Spirit of God will be flown out from him.

But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
Isaiah:53:5

Dear Child of God, Today's meditation beautifully portrays that CHRIST was wounded for  each of our transgressions and bruised for our inequities.

And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
Matthew:26:30

It was on this mount Christ won his spiritual battle before he carried the cross, submitting to the will of God.

Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
Luke:22:42

His soul was crushed and sorrow of death compassed him as he cried out to the father if this cup can be passed away from him.

And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
Luke:22:44


The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.
Psalm:116:3

Christ was bruised at this mount of Olives till he sweat blood. The covenant of the new testament that has been shed for the redemption of many.

After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
1 Corinthians:11:25

And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.
Hebrews:9:15

By his blood we have forgiveness of sins.

In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Colossians:1:14

We have redemption through this blood. It is by the death of CHRIST his shed blood, through the sanctification of the Holy Spirit that we have redemption from sin.

Dear Child of God:
Are you still under the influence of sin? The blood of Christ washes us from all sins.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
1 John:1:7

Does your past shed a dark shadow at your present and future?

The blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth can sanctify you from every dead works of your past.

How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
Hebrews:9:14

Yes, God will purge your conscience by his blood that your past has no influence on you anymore.

Are you in deep ADDICTIONS? Are in the hard grip of the enemy.. The blood of Christ is the medicine to set you free. Speak the blood and apply on every areas of life. You will be set free.

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Revelation:12:11

LIFE APPLICATION 2

 YOU ARE NOT CONDEMNED:

Dear Child of the most high God.

 There is no condemnation once you are made righteous by the blood of CHRIST and walking not by the flesh but by the spirit.

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans:8:1

Even the law of Moses cannot condemn us and we are free.
And not as it was by one that sinned, so is the gift: for the judgment was by one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
Romans:5:16

We are free from every judgement and accusations that the enemy can throw at us.

And one more truth, I would like your eyes to be opened to.

Satan was standing at the right hand accusing Joshua the priest, who was clothed in filthy clothes. But God saw no iniquity in him.

And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
Zechariah:3:1

And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
Zechariah:3:2

Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel.
Zechariah:3:3

And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.
Zechariah:3:4

God never condemns.... God never accuses.... neither he lifts up to pass judgement on his beloved bought by the blood of Christ.... so find rest in him beloved.... you are bought with a price.

 LIFE APPLICATION 3:

One more deeper REVEALATION in this meditation...
1. What was Christ writing on the ground?
2. Why did everyone who came to stone the woman left from the eldest to the last?

It is CHRIST who sits on the judgement seat and has the authority to pass judgement.

For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
2 Corinthians:5:10

The WORD of GOD says,
Those that forsake the living waters of CHRIST their names will be written on the earth and they shall be ashamed.

O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.
Jeremiah:17:13

Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.
Ezekiel:9:6

The judgement of God begins in his sanctuary and begins with The eldest.

 Jesus passed on the judgement at the men who came to stone the woman. He wrote their names from eldest to the last on the earth as per the scripture above.  That is why their conscience judged them wrong and they all left.

Dearly beloved, Christ is light. So if we are still In the dark, Let us  come to the light of Christ and live. Amen..

Gather and Scatter.. Meditation John 7:41-53


1. Many people said that CHRIST is truly a prophet. (V41)
2. Some questioned CHRIST must come from Bethlehem being the seed of David according to the scriptures but he is coming from Galilee. Thus there was division among the People. (42,43)
3. No man laid their hands on him though they wanted to take him. (V44)
4. The  priests and Pharisees asked the officers why they could not take him? For which they said No man spoke like him. (V45,46)
5. The Pharisees asked them if they were deceived too. They told them they are cursed as they knew not the law. None of the Pharisees or the rulers believed in him. (V48,49)
6. For this Nicodemus the ruler who had an encounter with Christ in the night said that the law does not judge anyone before hearing or knowing what that person does. (V50,51)
7. They answered and told him to look as no prophet arises from Galilee and everyone went to their own house(V52, 53)

LIFE APPLICATION::
And some of them would have taken him; but no man laid hands on him.
John:7:44

Here in our meditation today there Is a huge group of people gathering behind Christ.

2. Another group opposed even the idea of it. (V41-43)
3. Some of them wanted to take him and kill  him, but they couldn't.  (V44-46)
4. Some of them plotting and convincing everyone that he is not CHRIST.  (V47-49)
5. In the same group there were few who have met CHRIST and spoke for his cause too. (V50-52)

Let's meditate a few of God's promises.

A. We can fall seven times but still we shall rise.

Lay not wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; spoil not his resting place:

Psalm:118:12

And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
Revelation:20:9

Dearly beloved saints of the most high God....
We have a heavenly father who speaks for us and fights on our behalf.

 We battle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers in darkness... against spiritual wickedness in high places.


For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Ephesians:6:12

They will gather but God will scatter them that their weapons can never be repaired anymore.


Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield.

Psalm:59:11

Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them.

Psalm:144:6

Dear Child of God,


No weapon formed against you shall ever prosper. No tongue that rises in judgement against can prosper either. This is our heritage as the servant of God.


No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

Isaiah:54:17

You may in the position as David said, encompassed by enemies in all sides,


Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

Psalm:22:12

For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

Psalm:22:16

Even the sorrow of death can compass you.


The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid.

Psalm:18:4

But cry out to the Lord your shield and shelter, he will hear from his mighty heavens. He will incline his ears to hear your cry and to deliver you from trouble.


In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears.

Psalm:18:6


He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.

Psalm:18:17

This is the experience of David.... and so will be yours.


Also God sends us people who will speak for us as Nicodemus did... Let not your hearts be troubled.

Your soul is not going to end up in hell. Some of you have lost all your hope as the enemy both physical and spiritual are more stronger than you.

Some of you are under the grips of guilt beating yourself, thinking you are responsible for your own problems


Dear loving child, you are not a cast away.

 Your heavenly father loves you still and you are STILL the Apple of his eye. Cry out to him... and see the salvation of the Lord. May God bless you.

Rivers of living waters.... meditation John chapter 7:31-40

Today's meditation John chapter 7:31-40.

 1. Many people believed in Christ for his miracles.  (V31)
2. When the Pharisees heared this of the People they sent officers to take Christ. (V32)
3. Jesus told them in a little while they will not find him as he will go to the father who sent him. (V33)
4. Jesus said they will seek for him but will not find and where he goes they cannot go either. (V34)
5. The Jews started murmuring where he will go... why is he saying about going to a place where they cannot find him. If he will go to preach among the gentiles. ( v35, 36)
6. In the last day of the feast Jesus told them that if anyone is thirsty to come to him for a drink. ( v37)
7. He told them that rivers of living waters will flow from the belly of the one who believes. ( V38)
8. He spoke about the HOLY SPIRIT whom they will receive. The Holy Spirit was not given to them as CHRIST was not glorified yet. (V39

LIFE APPLICATION:
He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
John:7:38

I am going to take you into the deeper waters as the spirit of God was leading me.

Jesus said in V34, that where he goes nobody will be able to find him and then he talks about the outpouring of the holy spirit. I have dealt with it in my previous post, meditation on John 4:5-14 about the living waters.

But what does that to do with Jesus going to heaven...  Jesus said he will go and send us his comforter.

Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
John:16:7

Halleluyah! We have a comforter with us who is going to come with us in our journey.  He will be with us and guide us into all truth.

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
John:16:13

The Spirit Of God is the spirit of Jesus himself. When the spirit of God comes into our hearts it simply means Jesus coming into our hearts. He is another person of the Trinity .
You can read my post on trinity to know more.

Holy Spirit is a Person, though he can be metaphored as water, fire, dove and so on.

Today let me explain You a little of the attributes of the Holy Spirit.

A. He is a great comforter:

Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
John:16:7

B. He is the Spirit of truth:

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
John:16:13

C. He glorifies Christ as he is the spirit of CHRIST.

He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
John:16:14

D. He fights our battles:

So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.
Isaiah:59:19

E. He is omnipresent.

Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
Psalm:139:7

F. He is the power behind creation.

Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.
Psalm:104:30

What does GOD have in store for us when it comes to the Holy Spirit.?

Let me explain it crisply from Ezekiel 47.  Christ said from the belly of those that believe, rivers of living waters will flow.

A. The ankle experience:

Many of us are happy with the water hitting our ankles. But God calls us deeper.

And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles.
Ezekiel:47:3

B. The knee and the loin level:

As the spirit of God takes us deep... We get into the knee and loin of water. Don't stop there dear child of God... there is a river that is coming.

Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins.
Ezekiel:47:4

C. As the spirit of God takes us more deeper in there is a vast river in which our feets cannot stand and could not be passed over. Such beautiful is it to be filled in the Holy Spirit to the brim.

Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over.
Ezekiel:47:5

Along this river we have nourishment; along this river we have life; along this river we have healing.

And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.
Ezekiel:47:9

And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.
Ezekiel:47:12

Let me take you further deep,
This river flows right from the throne of God.

There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.
Psalm:46:4

Not only that, when we get into these  deeper waters we will win many to CHRIST... as we become fishers of men.

And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.
Ezekiel:47:10

Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
Luke:5:4

Dear Children of God! Being filled in the spirit is a marvellous experience. It is deep calling the deep, which the physical mind can never comprehend.  This is what David writes about this adorable experience.

Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.
Psalm:42:7


Let us ask of God with such great thirst and he will fill us with his holy Spirit to overflowing.

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
Luke:11:13

Our heavenly father will definitely fill us with his Spirit if we can ask of him with an unquenchable thirst. May God reveal more as you thirst for him more. Amen.
