My dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Today the Auspicious word for you is taken from the book of Isaiah 32:18, “My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, from the above verse we learn that the children of God will dwell in a peaceful habitation, in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.” God is claiming all of you, reading this message as His children. For which we need to be grateful to God. He refers to you as His people, His children. Once He calls you as His children then you should be rest assured of His care and concern for you. You should recognize his support for you. Gold and silver are in his hands. The earth and its fullness are with Him. God who has power over the Heaven and the earth is addressing you as His people, His children. Say Lord we thank you for considering us as your children. Secondly the Lord says, my children should not live in captivity under the authority of others but should live peacefully. God says, that He will build a special house for you, that you may dwell in safety and security. Your family as such represents your home. How should it be? It should be peaceful. There should not be any quarrel within your family, or people from outside. No one should empower you. Or over rule you. You should enjoy freedom of living in your house. No one should harass you for any reason. It should be a peaceful habitation. It should be a permanent dwelling place, where peace will prevail in your house, within your family members. In case you have a house of your own, then there may be restlessness, among the members in your family. There may be lack in peace and harmony. Your house which belongs to you may be under some property case and could go out of your hand at any time. Or there may be quarrel and fight always inside your house. No peace will be found in such kind of houses. Always you will be facing problems may be because of debts, or financial crisis. You need to change your residence to some other location, where you will have a peaceful and secure dwelling. God is ascertaining that your residence will be a peaceful habitation as you are His children. You may be wondering if your house will go out of your hand. There is always a kind of fear in you. But God will never allow such things to happen. He is always mindful of you and your house.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, Thirdly God wants to maintain peace within your house. There should be no quarrel among you. There should be no arguments in your house. God is uprooting all kinds of evil and horrifying disturbances from your houses. God wants to change your habitation as a small heaven on earth, where there will be prayer and praises offered to God from your house. Others living around your house should know that you are a child of God. Then it will be a peaceful dwelling place. God wants to bless your house in such a manner.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, Some may not be living n your own house. You are residing in a rented portion or on lease. Then for such people God is going to build a house for you. That will be a place of peaceful dwelling and it will be for the oncoming generation a quiet resting place. Your generation will be blessed in that house. This is a promise from the Lord so you receive with much reverence and focus in acquiring a house of your own which will be blessed by the Lord. God who said “Peace be within your walls, Prosperity within your palaces.” will remove all the disturbances that cause restlessness. And provide situations that will bring about peace and harmony within your palaces. God will help you to conduct auspicious events that would bring about joy and celebration into your house. God will meet all your needs and bless you with all the things that you aspire to possess and fill you with peace and joy. He will make your house like a small heaven. This is how God wants you to enjoy, and live in a quiet resting place.
Prayer: Lord we thank You. Lord I bless all the children who are reading this message in the name of Jesus. Lord you have said, “My people will dwell in a peaceful habitation, In secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.”We thank you Lord for the assurance that you have given. We are grateful to you for recognizing us as your children. This assurance gives us great joy and satisfaction. Lord as per this promise I pray that you will bring about a change in their dwelling place. In case your children do not have a house to stay please provide them a house of their own. Make their dwelling place a peaceful habitation. Help them to live in their own house with good health peace and prosperity. Fulfil your promise to them and may they not suffer under cruel landlords who curb their freedom of living a peaceful life. I bless them from the depth of my heart that they may live peacefully with all good things, and good health and wealth and riches. Let them happily bring forth children and live a blessed life in the house provided by God. Let peace reign in their house.
In Jesus Name we pray.
My dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The Auspicious word for today is taken from the book of Genesis 15:1, “Do not be afraid, Abram, I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, One day the Lord met Abram, and it was His regular practice to meet Abram which shows their intimate relation with each other. Abram had no children and so he used to get upset every now and then. God looked at Abram and said, “Do not be afraid, Abram, I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward, ”Why should God immediately look at him and tell him the above statement? “ Don’t be afraid.” This is because Abram had some kind of fear within him. So God, in order to encourage him said, I am your shield, which means, “I will protect you. I am like your shield that would protect you. I am your exceedingly great reward; I will be your strength. ”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, Abram did not tell the Lord that he was afraid, or upset over something then why did the Lord speak these words. Abram did not even tell the Lord that he is feeling weak and therefore God should strengthen him. But probably Abram would have suffered in his mind that he never had a child and now Abram and Sarah were old, well advanced in age, and Sarah had passed the age of childbearing. So deep in his heart he must have been worried that he had no generation after him. Therefore the Lord could have met Abram to encourage him, and strengthen his weak and feeble heart. I was personally thinking about this matter and God gave me a revelation as to why God spoke these words to Abram. “Do not be afraid, Abram, I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”Yes God spoke these words to Abram because he had some kind of insecure feeling, since he did not have any children.
And both he and his wife Sarah had grown too old. He was afraid of his old age. Abram wondered who would take care of him in his old age and who would be after him to continue his generation. All these thoughts could have troubled him deeply. Therefore God visited him and told him these words. “Do not be afraid, Abram, I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” God assured him that till the end of his age God would remain with him and protect him from all danger and harm.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, Abraham was not very convinced about what God told him. In the next verse Abram asks God, “Lord God, what will you give me, seeing I go childless. And he also suggested if his servant Eliezer could be the heir of his house. So he tells the Lord “It is good you have come to visit me. And I know that you will bless me. But if you want to give me something then give me a child. God said, to Abram, , “This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir. Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” Saying this Lord went up from Abram. And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness. God gave him a surprise visit and went away. And fulfilled his promise when Abram was 100 years of age. And a son was born to him and he called his name Isaac.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, today many of you like Abraham are suffering from insecure feeling. You might not have a job, so you will have insecure feeling. You have lost your wife so you are suffering from insecure feeling. God in order to pacify you to support, or to encourage you has come down to strengthen you from all your fears. He says the same words he told to Abram, “Do not be afraid, I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”I will be with you till the end of your age and be a shield and support to you and will protect you from all harm. God will be a right hand to you and strengthen you. Let all those who suffer from insecure feeling be strengthened by the Word of the Lord and believe that He will be there with you till the end of your life. If you have fear of your future then ask the Lord just like Abram, Lord what will you give me? If you desire, Lord give me a job, give me a child, give me a life partner, Give me a house of my own. I am still unsettled. Settle me soon with the right partner. God who blessed Abram will bless you also.
Lord we thank You. Lord I bless all the children who are reading this message in the name of Jesus. Lord we thank you for this good word of promise that your children could believe in you and not have any insecure feeling. Thank you Lord for the encouraging word which will produce miracles in their life. In whatever areas your children are having an insecure feeling may they come out of all fear and live a happy and prosperous life. May God do a miracle for them in that particular area, and help them to live a happy and content life. For those who are filled with fear and doubt I pray that you will be a shield to them and also an exceedingly great reward.
In Jesus Name we pray.
My dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! Many of you are murmuring, saying that there is no one to care for you. No one to see you, there is no one to attend over you. There is no one to talk to you. There is no one to have a friendship with you. Most of you are lamenting over your condition. I think that the Lord has heard your murmuring and so God comes inside your house with a special auspicious word of God, taken from the book of John 14:18, “I will not leave you as orphans. I will come to you. “
My Dear Beloved children of God, Once you come to God He will never allow you to be like the orphans. God says” I will not leave you as orphans. God assures you that He will never leave you alone. He will not forsake you. Today we see how children after growing old age forsake their parents or desert them or even let go of them as orphans. In some places husbands desert their wives. In other cases, the wife deserts her husband, and goes away. All this is happening in the society in which we live. For the sake of debts the wife forsakes her husband and runs away along with her children. There are many men who forsake their wives when some sickness or disease gets hold of them. There are many men like them. Such things should not happen in your life.
My Dear Beloved children of God, It was our wedding day so we went to an old age home, and there we met an elderly person, his looks appeared to be a rich man. He was not poor. He was from a rich family. I asked him, “Sir you look as if you come from a rich family. How did you come into this old age home?”Then he said how he had invested all his income, his insurance money, all his savings and everything he had for his children. He also settled his children. Then he further said that his son was now well settled in a foreign country. He was fine until my wife was there, but now she also had gone. I became alone. Then I told him, ‘’Well if your son desires then he can very well take you to America. But he said, “ Let my son be happy there with his wife and children. I will remain here for I do not know how long I would live. He did not curse his son. I purposely repeated asking questions, and in my discussion, I came to know that he has sacrificed everything for the sake of his son. The sad part is that one week earlier his son had returned from America, and had been to his mother-in-law’s house, but never made a call to him and neither did he visit him in the old age home. But before he could return he called up from the airport, saying daddy sorry “ All my programme, was changed, from what I had planned, and all money had been spent, so when I come the next time I shall visit you.”
My Dear Beloved children of God, Just imagine what pain the father must be going through. He is all alone in the old age home, what else is much more important than visiting his old father. His wife is no more. He should have made the programme to visit him first, and then the rest of the things could have been sorted out. My heart was much distressed. To think how people forsake their loved ones in all this manner. His uncle and his aunty are doing fine in health, the son, had gladly visited them but he had no time, to see his own father. He had no time to go and meet him. Yet the father did not curse his son and said, “Don’t know what problems he is going through.” He took all things very lightly and did not speak rudely about his son, neither did he grumble over his situation. He was very particular that he should not curse his son. Parents love their children but children so easily forget all the good things they have done for them. But today the Lord is saying, “No matter who deserts, you, I will not leave you as orphans.”The spirit of the Lord is telling you that He will never leave you alone. Dear children of God, you may have been forsaken because you have no money. Or you have been affected by some disease, and because of that they think that they will not be able to take care of people who have a serious disease. They don’t want to spend money on them. They know for sure that they are going to die. So why waste money on them.
My Dear Beloved children of God, People will come to me for prayer. They would have been so well off in the past days. But they would be brought by the auto man holding their hands. It would look so painful to see them. I would ask them, “Haven’t your children come along with you? ”They would say, “Our children have all gone to their office. This auto man is very reliable so we have brought him along with us. Wherever we go he takes us. ”Today we see in our society many auto men not only accompany elderly people along with them wherever they go but also give them water to drink and pay more attention for them. Many such people come to our prayer towers with auto men. When we see such things, our heart becomes heavy with grief. It becomes very unbearable. So those of you reading this message should never say that, “I have sent enough money to my father. He will take care of himself.”Instead of saying like this, it would be better that you take good care of your parents. Support them as much as you can in their old age. This is my humble request as an ambassador of God. Then your life will be a great blessing to you. So God himself has come in the midst of you, to give you life, and assures you that He will not leave you alone nor forsake you. He has arrived to do good for you. God bless you.
Prayer: Lord we thank You. Lord I bless all the children who are reading this message in the name of Jesus. Lord hear the voice of those who are saying, Lord I have been deserted by all and I live alone. There is no one to take care of me. There is no one to take me out. No one to enquire whether I have eaten my food or not. When I was doing well all were around me but now I am left alone, because I have grown old and I have no money. Hear the cry of those who are crying over their loneliness. Look upon these children and give them another opportunity to enjoy their life. Lord, You support them and look after them as king and queen and may they live happily for many years to come. Help those who have been deserted by their husbands. Bring back their husbands with good intention that they may show true love for their wives. Help them to run their family lives happily with your blessings. You will guard them and keep them with perfect health and happiness. May all the separated families be reunited in the name of Jesus.
In Jesus Name we pray.
My dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious word of God that comes to you for today is taken from the book of Genesis 17:2, “I will multiply you exceedingly.”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, from the above verse we understand that God promises to multiply you exceedingly. The word multiply denotes plenty, and exceedingly refers to something all the more in number. In other word plenteous. This verse says that God will increase you to a very higher level, and also make you to be multiplied in very large quantity and still increase you in an exceedingly abundant manner. So He expresses three different measurement of increase in this verse. There is a lot of difference between all these terms that are used to measure the level of quantity. When a man increases in plenty then he is blessed more than what he expects. He will receive exceedingly abundantly above all that he asks, or prays, or thinks. He will be drawn closer to a God who provides him something more than his expectation. God did not look at Abraham and simply say these words to him. He really meant what He said, because His words don’t fall to the ground. And what He says, He will surely accomplish. Abraham was known as the friend of God. So God often visited him and shared His thoughts. They were closely connected with each other. What a great blessing this was to Abraham. The God of the universe was in close relationship with Abraham who was an ordinary man like you and me.
Many of you have the doubt as to how God can speak to Abraham. Will He speaks to us also? Well even you can talk to God if you are closely connected with Him in the reading of God’s word and also in praying and praising Him.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, God says this word to Abraham when he had no children at all. God looks at Him and said, “I will multiply you exceedingly.”And Abraham did not raise any question but believed in the Lord God Almighty that God could perform a miracle for him even in his old age. God promised Abraham at the age of 99 that he would have a son. Until then he did not have even a single child. When both Abraham and Sarah had grown much old and had passed the age of begetting children. But the Bible says, “Is anything too hard for the Lord to do.’ God who promised him also fulfilled His promise. God blessed Abraham with the promised son Isaac. So if God promises you then He will fulfil His promise for you too. He is a God of promise.
If you walk with God each day of your life like Abraham, God will multiply you exceedingly. God who blessed Abraham will he not bless you? Draw more close with God. Abraham had an intimate relationship with God. We see how Abraham knelt down on his knees and often prayed to the Lord. He had great fear and respect for God. He promised Abraham and He fulfilled His promise. He was a man of prayer. If He promises you then He will keep His promise. That God who blessed Abraham as He had promised, will also fulfil His promise to you. God bless you.
Prayer: Lord, we thank You. Lord I bless all the children who are reading this message in the name of Jesus. All the children have experienced much sorrow in their lives, They expect You to bless them as you have promised in your word that You will multiply and increase them exceedingly. Lord who increases in abundance, multiply their income, wealth and riches. Make an increase in their anointing and in their prayer life too. Increase the spiritual gift for them and also may their descendants be blessed and multiplied in great number. Remove the reproach shame and deception from your children and bless them.
In Jesus Name we pray,
I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Today the special word for you is taken from the book of Luke 14:11, “And he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Everyone desires to move forward, to grow and establish themselves. If you are short there are ways for you to grow tall. If your income is very low there are ways and means for you to make a better income. If you have small scale of pay there is way to increase your salary. If you are in a lower position them there is means for you to go to a higher position. There is way for everything. What is the way that God expects from you? He expects you to humble yourself. If you humble yourself then God Himself with exalt you. So the quality of humbleness is very important in the life of a person. What does the word of God say? Put on the nature of humbleness. You need to be humble in your heart. If you have such a good nature in you, then God will take you to a great height, says the Lord. You should not be proud about your beauty or about your education, sometimes God gives certain people a good measure of anointing and you should not be proud about it. If you have such pride then it means, you are falling down. When you see the growth in a man then you will realize that the person is humble in nature.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, Today if you see the one at the top most level in evangelism is Brother Mohan C. Lazarus. If you wonder how his ministry reached its zenith it is only because of his humble nature. He would be busy doing the ministry here and there, even without rest. Today morning He will be in one location and in the evening he will be elsewhere. Again at night He will come over here. He will keep moving on from one place to another. Not only his hard work but also his humbleness in character made him a great evangelist. God has made him sit in a great height which no one can imagine. God has exalted him in every way. So He has become a role model to many other growing evangelists. Having grown to a great height, you can never see any pride in him. There are many testimonies standing before us. Such testimonies are there in the Bible and you are reading about them, and having faith in them but when you see such humble persons in front of your eyes, then you need to thank God for them. Thus we see that God has exalted him to a great height.
Through this message I would like to tell other upcoming preachers that if you have this quality of humbleness in you and have a check in your character, then God will exalt you also. You need to humble yourselves to the lowest level. Your experience, your pride in knowing English language, or your high post should not make you proud. God’s anointing is above all languages. I know of many preachers, who do not know English and may not be well educated too, yet they are seated in the top most places upon the face of this earth because of their humble nature. When I examine myself, about my qualities, and the growth of my ministry I can surely say that among many things humbleness in me has exalted me to this height, in a very short period. I even now, check myself by looking back at my small beginning. I thank God for His mercy. Today God has exalted me and has made me to be seated at a top position. I thank God a thousand times. Everything happened because of His grace. Even today, I never hesitate to tell my previous position as a waiter in the hotel, washing dishes, or as a mechanic, working as a car driver. Someone asked me, “Why are you like a beggar saying all about your past experience while preaching. You are now at a higher level, a high position. People are looking at you in a higher range”. But I still continue to speak about my past experience because if I forget the past then I will be failing in my conscience.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, The more I speak about my poor and lowly condition of my past life, God’s name will be magnified. It may appear as if I am humbled before the people, but it would be a good testimony, before the Lord about me. It is not important how high I am held by the people but how God estimates me is very important. So it is not only being humble in nature, but also you must never forget your past life. You should never forget the rugged path you had once treaded upon. You may think if I tell about my past people will think very cheap or very low about me. But that doesn’t matter. God’s name will be glorified through your testimony. If you want God to think high about you then you need to humble yourselves to the lowest level. Then your business will grow. Your ministry will grow, you will be at the top level in your studies, in your job, and in all that you do so just humble yourselves.
Ask God to give you the quality of humbleness in you.
Prayer: Lord we thank You. Lord I bless all the children who are reading this message in the name of Jesus. Lord you have said, that he who humbles himself shall be exalted. Help every child to humble themselves till the lowest level. May they have the nature of humbleness in their deepest heart. Let them wear the quality of humbleness, and lead their life and be a blessing to others in this world. Lord You humbled yourself till the very point of death. You had been a role model to us while you were on the face of this earth. Even today there are many holy men of God, who have set a good example of humbleness before us. Help us also to follow them and humble ourselves so that we may receive the highest position in the heart of God. I bless all the children from the depth of my heart. In Jesus Name we pray.
