Matthew 6:31 -33, "Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."

If you run after money, money will run far away from you but if you seek God, money and other things will come running after you. This is the golden rule I learned after coming to Christ. I remember when I was a very small child. My father was in good position but after 10th or 15th of every month I heard them saying, "we have no money, what would we do now?" And always those words did hit my soul very badly and always I felt a great fear, as we have no hope. Yes, my dad was working very hard to earn money but there was no blessing because there was no place for God in our home though we were to going Church every week and thinking we were worshipping God. But God and His blessings were far - far away from us. That's why Jesus said, "seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."

When we started seeking God, He added blessings in our lives. He blessed our finances. He exalted us in our studies and in our jobs. In 1988, Bro. Dhinakaran and family were passing through Bhopal and we went to meet him in a hotel. When we were leaving the hotel, brother prayed for us and he said laying his hands on my dad, "One day you will see all your children sitting in a very high position." At that time we were studying and there was no hope for us because we could not get admission in engineering or medical college. Soon my father moved to USA then I thought, "when we could not find a good job in India how is it possible that we could get a good job in USA?" And when we came here everyone said, get whatever job you can get because no one would give you a good job. So that was very disappointing for us, but I always remembered this promise and claimed it. And when we got good jobs, people were amazed. Many asked my brother what his qualification is that he got this much high paying salaried job? My brother laughs and says, "I have only B.Sc.(Bachelor's degree in Science) but it is because of Jesus who exalted us." Yes, when we seek God He adds blessings in our lives as the Bible says in Psalms 84:11, "For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly."

When we give our best things to God, He gives best things in our lives. Bible says in Malachi 3:10, "Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this, Says the LORD of hosts, If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it." Yes, God wants us to give what is God's. God has given us 24 hours in a day and 2.40 hrs (2hrs and 24 minutes) are God's. If you are not giving 2.40hrs to God, you are stealing His time. If you are not giving tithes every month, you are stealing the money of God. . And by stealing God's property how can we expect prosperity in our lives?

You need not to go after money, you need not to go after fame and other worldly things but when we seek God first, He adds all these things in our lives. Not only that, He adds blessings in the lives of people who come in their contact. We had tenants in our home and as soon as they come to reside in our home they started getting blessings from God. One of our tenants when they started getting blessing, they thought that the house is a very blessed one and why not take the house in their possession. So they tried to kill us by giving something in food. But God reveled to my mother before hand. Yes, my friend, you can not get prosperity or blessings of God by cheating others but by seeking God. Start seeking God every day in prayer and in Bible reading and you will see the blessings of God coming in your life.

Are we the last and final generation? Part II

By Sheela Isaac

2. Mark of the beast 666 is almost here:

May 7, 1996 edition of the Chicago Tribune. Staff writer John Van reported, "A tiny chip implanted inside the human body to send and receive radio messages...is likely to be marketed as a consumer item early in the next century."

This report and many others say that this technology is almost here. I heard in TV that they have tested this type of chips on rabbit and on some other animals and it was successful. And soon they will be testing it on human beings. Most of the reports say that this type of chip will be implanted on the forehead or most likely on the hand. They are even planning to plant these chips on the back side of the ear of a new born baby. And it will be compulsory like ID card or credit cards.

Revelation 13:16-18, "He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666".

It looks that the time of antichrist and the 666 (the mark of beast) is almost here and we have very short time to prepare for the Rapture.

Well these are the signs of rapture and return of Lord Jesus Christ. Because before antichrist comes the Rapture will have to take place. Then antichrist will rule for 7 years and after that Lord Jesus will come and place His feet on mount olive and reign for 1000 years, question is, are we ready for Rapture?

Today many are not worried about these events. Once I was talking to a person, I was talking about rapture and when he heard he laughed very loudly as if he is mocking me. He said "Jesus is coming, let Him come we can go away to some other place and hide". It was a very strange answer not from a non Christian but a person who is celebrating Christmas (Christ’s birthday), going to Church and having a Christian name. I was thinking why he is doing all these things when he has nothing to do with Christ. Today many are in a similar situation who profess to be Christians and believer of Jesus Christ, but are not.

Once I was talking to one of my colleague in office. She said, "we have a party today evening." I asked her what type of party it is? She said eating, drinking and dancing that’s all. It is fun!!! This is today’s situation. It may look fun, but, the question is if Jesus returns to take His bride, will they be collected from those dirty places, certainly not. He is coming for those who are waiting for Him in holiness and purity, who is blood washed and are without wrinkle.

What about you? Are you living in these worldly pleasures or waiting for the Blessed Savior who is coming for His bride. Are you a blood washed person, has your sins been forgiven? Do you say, "I am ready to meet my Lord at any time." If not.....

Please pray this prayer:

Lord Jesus I am a sinner. I know that if you will return soon I am not ready for that. Today I want to be ready. Please wash away my sins with your precious blood which was shed on Calvary’s Cross for me. Today I accept you as my Savior. Come into my heart and make a home and live with in me. I promise you today on I will live for you, I will walk in holiness and wait for that blessed day when you will return to take me home. Amen
