Ancient secrets of prosperity - 4

By Sherly Isaac

In the Old Testament we read about a man named Abraham. God told Abraham to leave his home, his father's house and go to a nation which he knew not. Abraham obeyed God and went to a land which neither he nor his forefathers knew about. In those days it took many months or even years to travel from one place to another. So Abraham started his journey with his wife, his brother's son Lot and his father. But his father died in Haran. Then Abraham moved further on his journey with his wife and Lot to go to that new country which they never knew. He did not know what to expect there and what type of people he had to face. But he went just because he heard from God and just trusting God.

He was in a strange land but God made him prosperous. Bible says that Abraham was very rich as we read in Gen 13:2, "Abram was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold."

Further we read in Gen 13:15-17, for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever. And I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then your descendants also could be numbered. Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you."

Why God favored him so much and why God blessed him so much? The simple reason was that he walked with God, obeyed Him in every way and trusted in Him no matter what came before him. Even God spoke about him in Gen 18:17-19, And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do; Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him."

God knew for sure that Abraham would not only walk in His ways but also teach his children to obey and trust in the almighty God.

We read in Pro 3:1-4, "My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands; For length of days and long life And peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man."

Even today also if we love the Lord, walk in His ways, trust Him and obey Him, He will exalt us and make us prosperous.

Yes, there is a God who loves and cares for us and is interested in making us prosperous. Because of His great love for us He sent His only son to die for us. Jesus came in this world to die for us so that we could have eternal life that we could have peace and joy which this world cannot give. He came to give us abundant life. This abundant life is available for every person who comes to Him. He is ready to forgive and forget all our sins and ready to give us a new life.

In the Beginning

By Vinod Isaac

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth"(Gen 1:1).

Two recent scientific news articles caught my attention.

1.) A giant Magellan telescope is being built and will be completed in 2018

2.) Earth like planet Corot7b found outside our solar system.

Well some of what is in the article is hype but I am not going into that area today. Today I want to discuss two statements that I found interesting in it.

The purpose of the huge telescope is to see how the universe came into existence. They want to see how it looked like when the stars were created. This telescope is going to show how it looked like when out of total darkness light came into existence.

Daniel Fabricant, associate director of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics said a statement.

"[We'll be] looking at the first generation of stars forming in the universe, which is kind of a cool idea: The time when the lights went on in the universe. There was no light before that time,"

When I was reading it I said wow we already believe it without seeing. And scientist don't believe it even after seeing it. God has already revealed to us that that's how He created.

Look at Genesis 1:2-4 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

Do you see that Daniel Fabricant's statement is nothing but Genesis 1:2-4 the very starting verses of the Bible. There was total Darkness and God created Light that is the first thing God did.

I have been asked by many atheists that how God created light first, and the Sun and the Moon later? They said that it was impossible for light to come into existence even before the Sun and Moon came into existence. Well now scientists have discovered exactly what is written in the Bible. Isn't it amazing?

Again in the quest for life outside of planet Earth scientists made another discovery.

The second article titled "Earth Like planet" is little deceptive. Corbot7 is not exactly like our Earth. It's temperature is 3600░F in day time and minus 330░F in night time. So definitely you can't go and live there.

But one of the characteristics that is essential for life is found in this planet. That is, this planet has solid rock surface where a living creature can set it's foot and stand on it. So far all the planets found outside of our solar system were just balls of gases and were not solid.

That is exactly what God did before creating any living creatures.

Gen 1:9-10 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

Do you see how science is unfolding the Bible right before our eyes? What He did and said that He did, can be seen today through the equipments created by the scientists. God created everything that was essential for human being to live. So far Earth is the only planet found that has every single thing in the right measure to sustain life. Other planets are either too hot and too cold or they don't have atmosphere or they don't have water. And I tell you, the fact that this Earth has every thing in balance is not an accident.

John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

God created the heavens and the earth and placed Adam and Eve in the Garden but they rebelled. They did which was not ok in the sight of God. And sin entered into this world. Result is that we are born in sin and we need a savior. The same God who created the universe came down to die for us so that we can live. Jesus died for your sins and my sins. Today you can receive forgiveness of sins because of the shed blood of Jesus.

If you want to receive forgiveness of sins please pray this prayer:

Lord Jesus I know that I am a sinner. I believe that you died for my sins on the Cross. Please forgive me of my sins. Please cleanse me with your blood. Please come into my heart. I accept you as my Lord and Savior. I pray in Jesus name. Amen.

Hope for the Hopeless - Part 4

By Sherly Isaac

Three and a half years of Jesus' ministry was filled with mighty power and great miracles. That was the time when His disciples learned how to walk by faith. That was the time when they rejoiced seeing the mighty works of the Lord. Once Jesus sent them to preach and to do whatever He had been doing for the people as we read in Mar 6:7, And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits." Also in Mat 10:7, And as you go, preach, saying, 'The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give."

Further we read in Mar 6:12-13, "So they went out and preached that people should repent. And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them."

Jesus again sent seventy other disciples to go and preach the Gospel as we read in Luk 10:1, "After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go." When they went they also saw mighty things in their ministry. They came back rejoicing and said as we see in Luke 10:17, "Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, "Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name."

In those years Jesus gave hope to many, healed many, raised many dead, cast out many demons and wiped away the tears of many. Despite all the good works He did, there were people who hated Him. A day came when they arrested Him, beat Him, dragged Him along the streets of Jerusalem, and nailed Him on the cross. The whole ordeal was painful and heartbreaking for His disciples. They could not believe that their beloved master had to go through such harshness. They were afraid; they lost all their courage and closed themselves behind doors. They lost all their hopes. In that hopeless and helpless situation Jesus stood among them. When they saw Jesus, all fear was gone and great peace filled their hearts. We read in John 20:19 & 26, Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, "Peace be with you." And after eight days His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Jesus came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, "Peace to you!"

My friend, are you going through hopeless and helpless situation today? Are you shedding bitter tears today, because you have lost your loved one? Jesus can help you to come out of those horrible situations. No matter what your situation is today, He can fill your heart with great peace and great hope that this world cannot give. Just come to Him and ask for His help. He is ready to help you and He is ready to wipe away all your tears.
