2 Kings 25:27-30 "Now it came to pass in the thirty- seventh year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, that Evil-Merodach king of Babylon, in the year that he began to reign, released Jehoiachin king of Judah from prison. He spoke kindly to him, and gave him a more prominent seat than those of the kings who were with him in Babylon. So Jehoiachin changed from his prison garments, and he ate bread regularly before the king all the days of his life. And as for his provisions, there was a regular ration given him by the king, a portion for each day, all the days of his life."

Here we see about a king who was in prison and there was no hope for him that he may come out from that place anymore, but one day he was released from that prison and was given a prominent seat. And he changed from his prison garments and he ate bread regularly before the king all the days of his life.

If we read in the book of Isaiah Chapter 61:1-4, there the Bible says, "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." And they shall rebuild the old ruins, They shall raise up the former desolations, And they shall repair the ruined cities, The desolations of many generations."

Yes, my friend, Jesus came into this world to give us a life free from all bondages, He came to this world to give us New Hope, He came to this world to give abundant life, a life full of joy, happiness and peace. This life can be yours if you come to Christ and invite Him to come into your life. Ask His forgiveness for all the wrongdoing. Ask that He may cleanse you with His precious blood. And you will never be the same again.

WITHOUT CHRIST LIFE IS USELESS

By Sheela Isaac

There is a very good Hindi song which says:

Masih bina jeevan bekar hai, Masih mere jeevan ka adhar hai
Jeena Masih hai, marna nafha hai. Masih mere jeevan ka adhar hai

Its meaning is:

"Without Christ life is useless or in vain, Christ is the base of my life." "For me living is Christ and dying is gain"


Yes, my friends, without Jesus there is no life. Without Jesus you cannot achieve anything in life. Many times people say "why are you ministering to God..... Why are you wasting your time......... You are a Jesus freak......., you are a fool. Many times people say to my mom, "you have ruined the lives of your hildren..........., do a wise parent put their children in God's work,......It is the time for them to enjoy in life but you are imposing religious things on them, you are making them to listen to spiritual messages all the time.......

How bad are these comments, why? they never accepted Lord Jesus in their lives, they do not know what it is to love God and serve God for His greatness, they never valued the death of Christ, they never thought how much the son of God suffered on Calvary's Cross, not because He needed redemption, not because He was a sinner, but He did it for them only. He did it for the broken mankind, ruining in sin. Yes my brothers and sisters, because, and only because of His shear love and grace, He did it all, He came into this world to die for you and me. All heaven and earth is His, all the cattle of thousand hills are His, all the gold and diamond mines are His, but He left His heavenly glory because He loves you, because He wants to save you from miry clay. He wants to pull you out from the clutches of the devil. Have you ever thought of it? Have you ever accepted Him as your Lord and Savior? Have you ever said "Lord you are everything for me, Where shall I go from you, you are my eternal life. You are my salvation."

Invite Him today in your life and see what He will do for you. When He will come into your life, your life will never be the same again. You will see great changes taking place. When I received Christ as my Lord and Savior my life was totally changed. When Christ came into my life and into the lives of my family member's, we cleansed ourselves and our home too. We threw away all the filthy novels and lustful movie song cassettes. And invited Christ to come and dwell in our home. Yes when Jesus comes into our lives it happens.

There is a song it says:

The songs which I used to sing, I sing them no more
The books which I used to read, I read them no more
The things which I used to watch, I watch them no more
Because Jesus came in, I am a child of God now


When Jesus came, He brought peace and joy unspeakable. All these years we experience that joy. The joy which ever increased in our life. Many people came to our house and said, "I feel such a peace in your home." Once an African brother who was also doing God's work came to our house and said "I do not know how much you pray but I feel the presence of God in your home so much that I never felt in any other house."

Yes, my dear friends invite Jesus the fountain of joy into your life and in to your home. When He comes, He will take care of every situation. He will bring joy and peace into your life. The joy which never fades away, the peace which stays always. Many letters we receive saying "I am so depressed, I am so tired of this life." Are you depressed? Is worry killing you, are you dejected in life, are you so lonely? Come to Calvary's cross and invite Jesus into your life.

Please pray this prayer:

"Lord I need you, come into my weary soul, wash away my sins, cleans me from all unrighteousness, make me whole. Give me your peace and joy. I pray this prayer in Jesus name, Amen

FIRST MARRIAGE

By Sherly Isaac

Genesis 2:18-24 "And the LORD God said, "It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him. Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: ĎThis is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.í Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh."

Well, this is the story about Adam and Eve who were the first man and woman in this world and here we see the first marriage which took place in this world. Not because of the will of Adam but the will of God. When God saw Adam all alone in this world, He said, "It is not good that man should be alone." Yes, God is mindful of you as the Bible says in Psalms 115:12-13, "The LORD has been mindful of us; He will bless us; He will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron. He will bless those who fear the LORD, both small and great." Many times it is very difficult for young people to take a decision about their life partners. But if you are a child of God, if you are a saved person, if you are walking in the ways of God then He is mindful of you and He will do everything beautiful in His own time.

But the question is, how to choose a person who is according to Godís will and who can be perfectly matching?

Marriage the Godís way:

There are many ways how people choose their mates, some choose their mates by dating and in some countries like middle east and Asian countries, parents choose a life partner for their children. But if you want a marriage Godís way then there is only one method, pray, pray, pray until He speaks to you. It is not at all an easy way. May be it takes much time, but God will never fail you if you seek His will. As the Bible says in Psalms 34:5, "They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed."

I have seen many people who came to Christ, they were doing ministry, then they married a wrong person and ended up in tears. I remember one of my friends always. She came to Christ and she was so enthusiastic for Christ that she led many people to Christ. But she got married with a wrong person and her chapter with Christ ended that day, not only was her husband a hard-core drunkard, but was also against the ministry. Her life became miserable after her marriage. She is in tears today. My dear brothers and sisters, it is easy to take a decision without praying but the outcome could be a snare to you.

I read a missionaryís life story long back even I forgot her name. She was born and brought up in USA, when she was a teenager she came to Christ and accepted Him as her personal Lord and Savior. After that she tried to do everythings according to Godís will and many a times she got offers for dating but she said, "let me know Godís will first" and refused to date with any man. She waited for 6 long years to know Godís will and one day a godly man came and married her. Today she is happily married and both are missionaries in India. Yes, my friend, Jesus can do the same thing for you if you ask for His divine guidance.

Flee from fornication:

Genesis 2:23-24, "And Adam said: ĎThis is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.í Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh."

God instituted married life and if you have relationship with a man or a woman out of wedlock, whether it is dating or adultery or relationship after taking divorce it comes under fornication as The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 7:2, "Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband."

Thatís why the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, "Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God."

May the almighty God help you to find a life partner according to Godís own will!
