Today with Jesus
- Today's Bible verse
" Cry loudly, do not hold back- Raise your voice like a trumpet, and declare my people their transgression. “(Isaiah 58:1)
Are we destined to suffer under sexual abuse and exploitation? or to fight back till we get justice?
Human Sex is a special gift of God for the pro -creation and the existence of humanity. That should be done only with in the sacramental marriage with the mutual love and consent of wife and husband. All other types of sex and sexual activities are sin and abominable in front of God and humanity. We are the children of Jesus with the spirit who says,” But I tell you that if anyone looks at a woman and wants to sin sexually with her, in his mind he has already done that sin with that woman.”(Mathew 5:28) But this holy gift of sex is abused and exploited wantonly and nakedly and even glorified and sold in the open market. The victims have no god fathers and god mothers to cry for and stay for and most often they suffer silently as it’s their fate. Actually we are not destined to live like that by the fear of the society and the dirtiness of the rich and powerful. If we are silent then the perpetrators will be sainted and this heinous crime will be glorified and we will be driven in to the world of silence. And this sin will be flowed in this beautiful earth as honey and milk. Any type of sexual abuses at any time ,places, ,circumstance and person should be zero tolerant. That should be exposed and punished and justice should be done invariability to the king and to the wag abound. “For Zion sake I will not keep silent.”(Isaiah 62:1) Jesus is ready to safe guard you from the sexual cannibals.
One of the sexual victims of Dominique Straus Kahn [who was the chief of IMF. He had tried to rape and wanted sex with the hotel maid, 37 years single mother with 15 years old daughter from Gienia. She has resisted it and voiced and complained to the New York City police. Then the culprit ,Strauss Kahn was hand cuffed, paraded , and clamped in to the Ricker’s jail -the most notorious in US.] says, “When I see that a little chamber maid is capable to taking on Dominique Strauss Khan, I tell myself I do not have the right to stay silent.”
“ For God did not give you in a spirit of timidity(cowardice. of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but of power.”(2 Timothy 1:7)
Jesus, Wipe away all our sins of sex. Save us from all the sexual predators. We pray for all the sexual victims especially the children and the women in the war zones like Ivory Coasts. Let us have the gut to resist all types of sexual advances. Let justice prevailed every where. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

- Today with Jesus
“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.
