Today with Jesus
- Today’s Bible verse
" Yes ,I am coming soon!” Amen !Come, Lord Jesus!.”(Revelation 22:20)
Have you ever be cried for an end of an evil ?
Revelation closes human history as Genesis opened it.- in paradise. In the last chapter of the old testament ends with a curse , “Otherwise I will come and strike the land with curse.”(Malachi 4:6) But the last chapter of the new testament ends with grace, “ May the grace of the lord Jesus be with God’s holy people.” (Revelation 22:21) In Revelation evil is gone forever. It is perfect city with no evil. The book ends with an urgent plea; Come., Lord Jesus!.” In a world of problems, persecution, evil, and immorality, Christ calls us to endure in our faith. It is a book of hope. It shows that no matter what happens on earth, God is in control. It promises that evil will not last forever. “No longer will there be a curse upon anything.” (Revelation 22:3) Don’t get afraid or panic about the unveiling of unheard tragedies of world events or the falling of undreamt evils of the people driven by the dark forces on us. God is going to destroy the evil forever.
The rule of terror, Adolf Hitler (!933- 1945) the blood thirsty vampire ended with a big bang gunshot on 30 April 1945 on his temple using his own blood stained service revolver (kiled more than 60 million innocents Jews.) by himself. Hitler, “Sat—sunken over with blood dripping out of his right temple. The pistol lay at his feet. Blood dripping from Hitler’s right temple and chin had made a large stain on the right arm of the sofa an d was pooling on the floor/ carpet.” The end of Hitler’s era has made a lasting peace, prosperity and hope for the world from the ashes of terror and unprecedented mass murder. What ever be the well being that we are enjoying is the end result of hope of human spirit.- that there is end for all the evils and a rule of Peace, Joy and Love.
The evil will not sustain forever. So do good and stand for good. Collaborate with justice and righteousness . Let ” The word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.’(Psalm 119:105) in this dark era.
Jesus, we are in the new year -2011. Thanks for all the grace and blessings you have been showering on us -2010. We submit 2011 in thy hand. Bless this year and all your creations and those who stand for you and your principles. We pray for those who are in the spell of evils and struggling to come out from it. Put a sudden end for all the evils. Let your grace encircle those who are under persecution . All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

“Leave these men alone! Let them go.” (Acts 5:38)
The sign of the Cross on the television tower in Berlin : “The
sign of unbeatable sign of worship,”- Ronald Regan, President of USA in 1987.
Till the passing of
the present earth and heaven, Christ, his Cross and its principles would be
valued and be in proclamation for the salvation of the world. No power on earth
can wipe out the eternal truth of God from the face of this earth. It is always
better not to fight and antagonize Christ and his principles. When Peter and other disciples were put in
jail to be punished by the assembly of Jews, the great respected learned
teacher, Gamaliel, advised them,
"Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will
fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will
only find yourselves fighting against God” -(Acts 5:38&39). It is an universal law for a smooth peaceful
way of co-operative living on earth.
After the second world
war, Berlin was under Communist government. Most of the churches and its
symbols were destroyed to crush the faith in Jesus. To show the power and
strength of atheism and communism, Walter Ulbech, the head of communist
Germany, constructed the tallest television tower in Germany. On top of the
tower is a stainless steel globe in rotation.
As soon as the construction was over,
everyone was shocked to find a shining and glittering sign of a cross on
the globe from top to bottom. The sun's rays shone on the globe from all sides
making the cross to glitter. The
engineers tried all their might to erase it, but in vain. Still it is there to proclaim to the world
that the cross is our salvation.
Conscience question: Are we in a fight against Christ and
his teachings by our actions of projecting and selling ourselves for self-glorification?
Prayer: Jesus, let us be the promoters of your signs
and symbols of your sacrifice on the cross for our salvation and eternity. Let
us not be destroyers, but custodians of your teachings. We pray for all those
who are in the ministry to spread your good news of salvation on the cross. Let
all those who believe in you be in salvation and the fighters against you be in
conversion. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
