Anil Kant, a famous gospel singer in India, shares the story of his journey to discovering Jesus. His very popular song “pray for india” has touched many heart’s in India and around the world.
Lord I stand in the midst of a multitude
Of those from every tribe and tongue
We are your people on earth
Redeemed by your blood
Rescued from death by your love
There are no words
Good enough to thank you
There are no words
To express my praise
But I will lift up my voice
And sing from my heart
With all of my strength
Hallelujah(x3) to the Lamb
Hallelujah(x2) by the blood of Christ we stand
Every tongue Every tribe Every people Every land
Giving praise unto the lamb of God
Lord we stand by grace in your presence
Cleansed by the blood of the Lamb
We are your children called by your name
Humbly we bow and we pray
Release your power to work in us and through us
Till we are changed to be more like you
Then all the nations will see your glory revealed and worship you
Bridge: Every knee shall bow
And every tongue confess that you are Lord of all, Lord of all

God bless us and feeds all needy things, why because we need to feed the needy….we have to offer the things to the one who doesn’t have.

NEW TESTAMENT(BIRTH OF CHRIST TO END OF WORLD) SAYS :

- Mt. 5:42. JESUS : Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.
- Matthew 10:42 JESUS : And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my disciple, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward.”
- ‘Luke 6:38 JESUS : Give, and it will be given to you. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
- “2 Corinthians 9:6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.
JESUS said this parable to the crowd who listens to Him,
 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day.  At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores  and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.
 “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried.  In hell, where he(RICH MAN) was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side.  So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’
 “But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony.  And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.’
 “He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my father’s house,  for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’
 “Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’
 ” ‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’
 “He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’ ”
chasm – impassable chasm that prevents anyone from passing from either side to the other. In other words ,the outcome from hell is irreversible.
agony – Extreme level of suffering.
God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him, and from the man, HE created woman.
The Bond of Marriage Established By God. God made marriage. But divorce and remarriage is entirely man-made. To be frank, God hates Divorce.
God sees marriage as a covenant between a man and a woman. It is a relationship of personal obligation. Both husband and wife have given their Promise before God and they agreed and signed, that they will be faithful to each other; they are committed to live together for life-long untill death.
Is breaking faith with their wives/husband was such a terrible sin? Yes because they had promised lifelong commitment to their marriage covenant, and God was the witness, not the public.
They promise at the time of marriage, to be faithful whatever the circumstances they live together, but because of selfishness they fail to keep the promises they made when they entered into the marriage covenant, its a bond which never should be breakable, and divorce is not only a violation of God’s original plan for marriage, it violates the marriage covenant to which the Lord is a witness. Divorce is treachery against life’s most intimate companion and is a grievous sin which God hates.’
Acc. to Human, which becomes the very latest trend around the society, when a husband or wife feel they no longer love their marriage partner, or the marriage goes through a difficult time, or they fall in love with someone else, then divorce becomes an option for a human. There is little acknowledgement that human unfaithfulness is at the heart of all divorce. Yet the Bible is quite clear on this point and warns, ‘Do not break faith with the wife of your youth’ (Malachi 2:15)
According to Malachi, People of Israel was concerned that God was no longer blessing them. Their prayers were not being answered because of God’s displeasure with their attitude towards marriage; they were breaking their marriage covenants and divorcing their wives. God was displeased and said, ‘You have broken faith with her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant’ (Malachi 2:14), thereby highlighting the underlying cause of all divorce. God told his people that unfaithfulness, which is a wider term than adultery, is the root cause of all broken marriages and the sin that leads to divorce.
Divorce in a case of marital unfaithfulness. However, should circumstances arise which make separation inescapable, don’t leave your partner. Situational will change.
Mark 10:9 says therefore what God has joined together, let no one seperate.
