Exodus 12:21-23, "Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel and said to them, "Pick out and take lambs for yourselves according to your families, and kill the Passover lamb. "And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two door posts with the blood that is in the basin. And none of you shall go out of the door of his house until morning. "For the LORD will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two door posts, the LORD will pass over the door and not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you."

Here we see the great deliverance of Israelites through the blood of the lamb. Whoever applied the blood on the door posts were saved because the Lord passed over that particular house. My dear friend, if you want to be delivered from death and destruction, you must accept the blood of the lamb in your lives and in your homes. The Bible says in Romans 3:23, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." And also the Bible says in Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death." We are heading towards death.. eternal death and we need deliverance from death and destruction. We need pure, holy and innocent blood for the remission of our sins. Jesus came into this world to save us and about Him the Bible says in John 1:29, "The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!" And also Jesus said in Mathew 26:28, "For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins."

My dear friend, accept the blood of Jesus in your heart it will cleanse you from all your sins as the Bible says in 1 John 1:7, "and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin." Accept the blood of Jesus in your home and it will heal your broken homes and broken hearts and broken bodies. There is power in the blood of the lamb. Ask Jesus to wash you with His precious blood and make you whole. He will pass over you and not allow the destroyer to come into your life and into your houses to strike you."

Amen!

Are we ready to face Y2K bug Problem

By Vinod Isaac

Dear friends,

Yesterday I was reading an article In "India today" and I think it is worth reading the article.

Now let me make it clear that article in "India today" seems to be written from a collection of information from various experts. It is not a doomsayer's dream. It is also not from some Christian fanatic(usually considered to be a fool who just blabbers some thing).

What are the major things discussed in the article?

When you glance through the article you will find that almost every area of life is going to be hit by the Y2k problem. List includes Power failure, Accidental Missile triggering, Financial break down. Almost all agree that time is running so fast that it will be impossible to catch up with time. If power goes off and you live in a snow area what will you do? If Nuclear Missiles shoot up suddenly without control what are the consequences? We have seen two train accidents about 50 miles from Chicago, the freight train accident looks like to be due to malfunction of computer controlled signals. It may or may not be related with Y2K, but it tells one thing loud and clear that if Y2K bug falls on such areas where error cannot be tolerated things will not be that good.

you can find similar articles in every newspaper. Now let me take you to actual problems. The whole problem of Y2K is of programming, whether it is in an embedded electronic chip, Computer Chip, hardware, Operating system or Software. Those who know the programming know what happens when true and false gets interchanged.

If you go to Microsoft Web site. Why Microsoft? because many people think that Microsoft will be able to save us. If you go one by one and look at the software whether they are Y2K compliant or not, you will find out that many are not. And even Windows95, Windows98 are not fully compliant. If softwares are not Y2K ready, forget about embedded chips.

Now let's look at something from Bible. Let's start with Noah's flood. Every body were warned that flood is going to come. Noah was building the ark and every one were laughing. They did not listen and they were destroyed by the flood. Same thing with the people of Sodom they did not listen and they were destroyed.

But we see another group of people, people of ninveh. When Jonah went and proclaimed that in 40 days Ninveh will be overthrown. But the people of Ninveh repented and turned to God and could escape from disaster.

In all these incidents God spoke through His prophets and it needed faith to believe, but Y2K is quite different, you do not need faith to believe, you are already seeing. Let me quote some of the headlines from USA Today.

Finally No body knows for sure what is going to happen in the Year 2000. But one thing is sure that there are problems and unless these problems are corrected, it can be disastrous.

Have you been saying that there is no God? Have you been trusting science for solutions to every problem? If yes, let me draw your attention toward the fact that science is not perfect but God is perfect. Heaven and Earth may pass away but the Word of God(Bible) will not pass away. would you like to humble yourself before the almighty King and say to Him Lord Jesus I am sorry for the arrogance and pride. Instead of trusting you I had trusted science, I had trusted my own ability. Lord please forgive me and wash me with your blood. Come into my heart, make me a new person. I ask it in Jesus Name. Amen

The Blood

By Sherly Isaac

The blood that cleanses us from all our sins,
The blood that washes us, whiter than snow,
The blood that heals the scars of past
The blood that makes us whole
The blood of Jesus

The blood that covers all our guilt
The blood that is flowing from the Calvary
The Blood that was shed for the remission of sins
The blood that saves us from death and destruction
The blood of Jesus

I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever

By Sheela Isaac

Psalms 84:2-4, "My soul longs, yes, even faints For the courts of the LORD; My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, And the swallow a nest for herself, Where she may lay her young; Even Your altars, O LORD of hosts, My King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in Your house; They will still be praising You."

King David says here "My soul longs, yes even faints." what for? For a living God. David says in Psalms 42:1-2 "As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?"

Look, how great was his longing for God. How he loved God. How he tried to walk in the ways of God. Only because of that God spoke about him in 1 Samuel 13:14 "....The LORD has sought for Himself a man after His own heart, and the LORD has commanded him to be commander over His people." David was a man, who was according to God's own heart. A man who obeyed God in every thing, who trusted God with his whole heart.

Think about it. Can God say about you these things. Do you love God ? Do you want to dwell in God's house forever. King David says in Psalms 84:10 "For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God Than dwell in the tents of wickedness."

Now the question is, are you sure that you will dwell in the house of the Lord ? Can you say with certainty that you have a place in heaven ? Several times when we talk to people, different people have different opinions about reaching heaven. Some say, "I don't believe in heaven or hell." Some say, "Jesus already died for my redemption so I need not to do anything, He will take me straight to heaven." It does not mean that we can do what ever we want and live in sin and expect that one day we will reach heaven. Certainly not ........! But Bible clearly says that "ask & it shall be given to you. Seek & you shall find." Now take it reverse, it means that if you do not ask you will not receive it, if you do not seek you will never find. God is a gentle God. He never imposes on you some thing which you do not ask for, or against your desire.

Think about it, have you ever asked God to forgive your sins, have you ever said to the Lord that you are a sinner? Have you ever accepted Lord Jesus as your Lord & Savior, have you ever thought seriously how much Lord Jesus had suffered for you on Calvary's Cross ? Have you ever thought, because of your sin He died instead of you.

There is a sure heaven & hell. Bible says that the soul goes to one of these two places, it is either heaven or hell. There is no other option. And remember that soul never dies. It lives for ever & ever. Hell is a horrible place, never think of going there. Let us see what the Bible says about hell.

Mark 9:43-44 "If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched; where worm does not die, And the fire is not quenched.' Isa 66:24 "And they shall go forth and look Upon the corpses of the men Who have transgressed against Me. For their worm does not die, And their fire is not quenched. They shall be an abhorrence to all flesh." Rev 21:8 "But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." Rev 20:10 "The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

Hell is a place, full of fire which never quenches. Hell is a place were people who are unbeliever(who rejected the great sacrifice of Lord Jesus & never came to salvation experience), rebellious, sinners, will reach and it is a place of torment.

Some years ago I heard a real story. About a youth leader in our Church in India. One day he came to our house and told his experience. He was seriously ill, doctors operated his nose two to three times & again he had the same problem. He said that when he coughs 1-2 litter blood comes out and splashes all over. And he was in intensive care unit. Doctors were trying to give him life saving injection. And they were trying to pump his heart to save him. And suddenly he found that his soul came out of his body & looked beneath, were his body was lying on bed. His brother was standing there & doctors were trying hard to revive him. He said that he waited for a minute in that room and then he went into a tunnel. It was dark and some horrible music was sounding. When he reached the end of that tunnel there were lot of people. He found that they were welcoming him saying " Come, Come". And he heard some noise like magicians do, like gili, gili.

He said that it was a too much horrible experience. He knew that it was a very bad place and his soul did not want to stay there. He had the feeling to some how or other escape from that place. However he came back to life. He said that even now after a year later when he wakes up at night he trembles due to fear, thinking of that experience.

I told him that it was hell and that he needed salvation. He agreed, and said that it was indeed hell. Hell is a horrible place, made for Satan and his people. Never, never think of going there.

Bible says that they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. How horrible it is. Think about it and get rid of your sins and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Accept Him and come to the born again experience ( not born in physical body, but born spiritually.) Let your heart and soul change. Let your soul be born spiritually & let it die for sin. Don't wait for another day. You may not find another day, another day may never come. Please pray this prayer & ask Lord Jesus to come into your soul :

Just as I am, without one plea, But
that thy blood was shed for me, and that thou biddest me
come to Thee O Lamb of God I come, I come!
Just as I am, and waiting not to
rid my soul of one dark blot; To Thee, whose blood can
cleanse each spot, O Lamb of God, I come, I come.


Lord Jesus I come to your presence just as I am. I come to your presence as a sinner. Lord help me to come out of my sins. Lord I need you. I know that, only you can save my soul from eternal hell. Wash me with your precious blood & make me whole. Give me a new heart. Cleanse me from all unrighteousness. Now on, I will live for you. I will serve you. When my life journey ends keep me in heaven with you. So I can dwell in your house for ever and ever. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
