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

3. God as a father delights in us.

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.

 1. One group wanted to really know who Christ was, if he really was a prophet. (V40)
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)

How does GOD help us to deal with wicked people gathering against us?:

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:
Proverbs:24:15

For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them.

Psalm:118:12

G. Fire will come down from heaven to destroy them in the day of battle.

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.

John:8:15

Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.
Proverbs:31:9

But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.
Romans:14:10

Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.
Romans:14:13

F. Do not judge anyone hastily before time.

Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

Isaiah:3:13

B. He never judges based on what he sees.

And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
Isaiah:11:3

C. There is a day of judgement when the living and the dead be judged.

I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Timothy:4:1

Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.
1 Peter:4:5

God is our avenger:

Dear Child of God! What do we do when we are falsely accused?
What Do we do when we are wrongly blamed for things we never did?
What do we do when we are offended by people?
Do we go around trying to prove ourselves right? Or we allow God to avenge for us.

The WORD of GOD says,

A. Vengeance belongs to God:

 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
Hebrews:10:30

B. HE JUDGES everything righteously.

Revelation:6:10

Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Romans:12:19

So, Let your heart not be troubled... If you are offended, if you are accused, we have the righteous judge to avenge. He will speak on our behalf and do the needful.

 Let us be like Christ :
For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
1 Peter:2:21

Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
1 Peter:2:22

Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
1 Peter:2:23

This is painful. But let us commit ourselves to God who  judges us righteously. He will speak for us and lift us up.
To GOD BE THE GLORY.  Amen.

Facing accusations with triumph meditation John chapter 7:11-20


1. The Jews were searching for Christ in the feast. (V11)
2. Some people said he is a Good man but some said Christ was deceiving people. (V12)
3. But nobody spoke openly fearing the Jews. (V13)
4. In the middle of the feast Jesus taught in the temple.(v14)
5. The Jews marvelled how he knew all letters without learning. (V15)
6. Jesus told them that the doctrine he is preaching is not his but of the one who sent him. (V16)
7. Jesus said if any man do the will of God then he will understand whether the doctrine is of God or of man. (V17)
8. If one speaks about himself he is seeking his own glory, but if he seeks the glory of the one who sent him, he is true and there is no unrighteousness in him. (V18).
9. Jesus asked why they do not keep the law and  go about trying to kill him, though Moses gave the law. (V19)
10. The people asked why they would want to kill him and that he has a devil. (V20)

 LIFE  APPLICATION:
Doing the will of God:
Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me.
John:7:16
If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
John:7:17

Many a times we too question the doctrine of CHRIST whether it is truly from God.

May be because it is so different from our ways?
May be because it is very different from the norm?
May be because it is too supernatural that natural minds cannot comprehend?

Whatever be it, the word of God says we will never be able to accept this doctrine of CHRIST unless we submit ourselves to do God's will.  You can read more about the will of God in my previous post.

The WORD of GOD says,

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
Psalm:34:8

Meaning take the chocolate, unwrap it, put in your mouth and then only we can taste... and see it.
Same way, give your life to God, hear his words and become a doer of his words and then only we can know who God is.

For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
James:1:23

For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
James:1:24

But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
James:1:25

Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
Luke:6:47

He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
Luke:6:48

But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
Luke:6:49

Jesus wants us not only to hear from him but also do according to the will of God. Dear Child of God,
If we are his sheep we will hear the shepherd's voice and we will follow him.  I pray that the spirit of God will enlighten us to hear God's voice and obey.

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
John:10:27

 LIFE APPLICATION 2:

What to do when we are falsely accused
?
In this chapter Jesus was accused as being a devil. What more can a person get.

I am going to explain how we are to face accusations in the light of the scriptures.

Sanctify the Lord in your hearts having a good conscience:

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
1 Peter:3:15


Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
1 Peter:3:16

Please go through the previous post on dealing with offensehttps://christlovelovelin.blogspot.com/2019/01/dealing-with-offense-meditation-john.html?m=1 for further meditation on handling accusations.
God be with you. May the good Lord keep your whole body, spirit and soul blameless till his coming. Amen.

 1. Rest assured! Being accused of being bad is normal.

2. Understand there is a demon behind and come quickly under the wings 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

3. When our master himself was accused and endured; we will also endure and come out of it. We are on the victory side.

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
Hebrews:4:15

4. Accusing is the roar of devil.... we have the Lion of Judah with us. Today I pray that every mouth of such lions be shut in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

 To god be the glory . Amen.

1. The Jews were looking out to kill Jesus. So he walked in Galilee. (V1)
2. There was a Jewish feast of tabernacle and his brothers told him to go to Judea and join the feast that his disciples will see his works and believe.  (V2,3)
3. They told him he should not do anything in secret if he seeks to be known openly. (V4)
4. His brothers too did not believe him. (V5)

6. The world hates him because he testifies against them that their work is evil. ( v7)
7. He told them to go to the feast and he told them that his time has not come. He still stayed back in Galiliee (V8,9)
8. After his brothers left for the feast, he went as well to join the feast not openly, but in secret. (V10)

LIFE APPLICATION:

Human Vs God's will

The Human will:
This meditation portion gives us a clear view of the difference between human will and God's will.
WILL is the decision making part of our soul.

A. The Human will is always evil because of Adamic nature in us.

And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Genesis:6:5

B. The Human will joins itself with the evil spirit to stand against God.

Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.
Psalm:56:5

C. Human will seeks its own glory.
He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
John:7:18

For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world.
John:7:4

D. The Human will seeks to steal, kill and destroy.

After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry, because the Jews sought to kill him.
John:7:1

Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.
Malachi:3:8

The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider thy testimonies.
Psalm:119:95

E. The Human will stands always against the will of God.

Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?
Psalm:78:19

F. Human will thinks of things of the world and not of God.
But when he had turned about and looked on his disciples, he rebuked Peter, saying, Get thee behind me, Satan: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but the things that be of men.
Mark:8:33

God's will:
A. God has plans for us.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Jeremiah:29:11

Sojourn in this land, and I will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee, and unto thy seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father;
Genesis:26:3

B. God's will has a time.

It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.
Psalm:119:126

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
Ecclesiastes:3:1

Then Jesus said unto them, My time is not yet come: but your time is alway ready.
John:7:6

C. God's will is that all  must be saved from eternal damnation

Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
Galatians:1:4

And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 6:39

Submission of Human will to the will of God.

God wants us to submit our will to the will of God's. Let us learn it from Jesus...

A. An experience of being born again is the will of God.

Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
John:1:13

B. Christ prayed the prayer that God's will be done on Earth as it is in heaven.

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Matthew:6:10

C. He was willing to do God's will even when the whole world stood against him and even when he had to die.

And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
Matthew:26:39

Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
John:4:34

For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.
John:6:38

D. He was so tuned even to God's timings. (V8,9)

Dear Child of God,
This word "WILL" is a very strong word. God has given us choice to carry out our own will or that of the devil or submit  to that of God.

Let us see some bad examples too.

1. Eve succumbed to the will of the devil.

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

2. Judas succumbed to the plan of the enemy.

 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
Matthew:26:15

3. Lucifer fell because of his will.

Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:
Ezekiel:28:2

Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.
Ezekiel:28:9

We will succeed if we can submit our will to God.  Or else we will sell it to the devil. The choice is ours. We are much safer in God's hands.

A. Let us therefore  submit our will to God as CHRIST did.. that we can see God's will unfold in our lives, however difficult it might be.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
James:4:7

B. Let our minds be renewed according to the will of God that CHRIST will be glorified in us.

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

C. Let us ask of God things according to his will that CHRIST be glorified in us.

And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
1 John:5:14

And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
1 John:2:17

So let us commit ourselves to the will of God and abide forever. Amen.

LIFE APPLICATION:
Are you offended? Are you hurt deep within? Are your emotions broken because of things happening around you, to you and in you? Then today's meditation is for you. Today let us see how to handle internal hurts God's way.

1. Why do we get offended?

A. People can offend us intentionally or unintended.
Jesus said offences will come. We can in no way avoid being offended. But woe unto the one by whom the offence come.

Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
Matthew:18:7

B. When we are offended in our hearts ...we end up with broken hearts as David says,

Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

We get hurt because of reproach.
Our heart becomes heavy. We try to find comfort in someone or something, but we do not find any.

C. We can offend ourselves.
Sorrow of heart can make our spirit broken.

A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.

Mark:4:17

F. We get offended because of our own lusts... when we are unable to feed them.

From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
James:4:1

Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
James:4:2

Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
James:4:3

2. How do we know we are offended?

Do not deny you are hurt. Initially hurt  portrays as anger and bitterness; but it leaves us with a deep sorrow and brokenness within.

A. We feel our spirit is broken.
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.

Here are a few ways in the light of the scriptures how to handle emotional hurts.

B. Choose to forgive and let go everyone who caused you the hurt... even if you are hurt by yourself or offended with God.

So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren, and their sin; for they did unto thee evil: and now, we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.

John:16:20

Jesus speaks about the comforter, the Holy Spirit that we will not be offended by him.

These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
John:16:1

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

So we have PEACE and comfort in Christ through the spirit of God.

D. Work on having a correct perception about God.
And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.

Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
John:6:68

And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.

Dear Child of God,
You may be hurting and broken within. But rise up.... you have a heavenly  father who heals broken hearts and sets captives free. Come to the healing streams.... and be healed. GOD BLESS YOU!
