USA - God slowly being removed from everywhere and Anti Chrst coming in

The Pilgrim fathers from England founded US as a country based on Christian belief and declaring their Trust in God. So every Dollay bill had the inscription "IN GOD WE TRUST".
The new dollar coin introduced in US does not have the inscription "IN GOD WE TRUST", it is silently removed.
One more step to eliminate God from the country.
On the other hand if Presidet Obama's as new health legislation is passed, every American will have the smart microchip implanted on their hand and forehead for secure identity.
Bible Prophecy of  Revalation 13 is being fulfilled.

Thank God, President Obama is helping the Bible prophecies to be fulfilled fast.
 

Adieu to Mongolia

Exaxtly after two weeks, I will be leaving Mongolia for good.
I have been here for 9 months, in between I made two short trips to India to join my family.
Since I am alone here, I should be happy to go back and be with my family.

But, in this 9 moths I have created an emotional bond with the church here.
When I came here, I never new anything about Mongolia and any church here.
My search through internet made me to find a church here.
From the second week itself I started going there.
I enjoyed a wonderful fellowship with the believers and there after I never failed on any sunday or any wednesday when there is a Bible study.
Slowly I started encouraging the youths and taking lessons for them.
Ah, all the believers love me so much and I love them too.
I feel very emotional when I leave this place.
Beacuse on this earth, I will never see them again.
Ofcourse at the Trumpet Call, I will be with them. That is a blessed hope.

I feel sad about many believers, because of the problems they face in life.
There are a number of single mothers (they became single mothers before they came to faith), bachelors (brothers and sisters) who cant find a match because the church is small in Mongolia and they want a believing partner, the low income and finacial struggles believers pass through.
But I thank God for the strong faith they have in Jesus and the sacrfices they do because of their faith.
I pray for them and God Bless them.
May be in this world, they cannot have a materially enjoying life, but sure, in eternity their  reward will be great.

God bless the believers and Churches in Mongolia
God Bless this coutry tand save many, where moral standards are very poor because of the culture.
Amen!
 

Another Human Leap close to 'Babel' & 'Eternity'

In Genesis 11:1-9, we learn of a united human race, one in both language and purpose, determined to build a tower in the Plain of Shinar.
The construction of the tower was to serve as a monument to human achievement. The attitude of the builders was indicative of those who had rejected God as their Creator.
God looked at their construction, exclaimed "Nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them"
and God confused their Language (Communication) and scattered them all around the Globe.

But at this age, irony is seeing again a united mankind, language is no more a problem, they are assembling once again in the very place where mankind was originally scattered abroad by God because of their ungodly and ill-conceived unity platform?

With modern technology, time and space has considerably shrinked. People can commute fast between continents and communicate instantly through intenet and communication devices. All techynologies are converging into Mobile phones, it is like a virtual presence, anywhere, anytime.

The characteristics of 'Eternity' are - no time (time-lessness), no space (no space constraint), (you can be anywhere instantly, ther is no change in time) and no death.

We inhabit a world defined by “spacetime”—a virtual grid in whose context all objects and events are assigned a “place” which defines their relationship vis-a-vis each other by placing an X amount of “distance” between them. Bridging this distance “takes time”: to get from event A to event B, one must first pass through the seconds or centuries which separate them, one at a time; for object A to exert an influence upon object B, it must first surmount the millimeters or miles which separate them, one at a time. In other words, getting from point A to point B is a process—a sequence of actions occurring one after the other.

In eliminating the constraints of Time&Sapce, there is considerable advancement, genetic theory is working towards eliminating death(?).

God said at Babel, "Nothing they plan to do will be impossible for man" and inetervened.
God is watching and will intervene in the history of man again once and for all.

I like to draw your attention to the recent advancement in quantum physics by U.S. physicist David Wineland and France's Serge Haroche who shared the 2012 Nobel Prize in physics.
A Nobel prize for being in two places at once
They proved that one partcle can be in two places and in two states at the same time. What does this mean? You can be in many places at the same time.
What is the implication? I leave it to your inquisite mind.


 

The Person and Message is same - Jesus - God who came in the form of Man

Gospel of John Chapter 1 begins - "In the beginning was Word, Word was with God, and Word was God".
This concept is diffcult to be undertood  except with extraordinary help.
This is a pointer to Jesus Christ, and says who He is.

Mr. Ravi Zacharias grew up in a Hindu culture, and has studied world religions and observed a fundamental distinction between Jesus Christ and the founders of other major religions:-

“In all of these, there emerges an instruction, a way of living. It is not Zoroaster to whom you turn; it is Zoroaster to whom you listen. It is not Buddha who delivers you; it is his Noble Truths that instruct you. It is not Mohammad who transforms you; it is the beauty of the Koran that woos you. By contrast, Jesus did not only teach or expound His message. He was identical with His message".

A person and his message is same!!!

This point is underscored by the number of times in the Gospels that Jesus’ teaching message was simply “Come to me” or “Follow me” or “Obey me.”, "I am the Way, I am the Truth, I am the Life".
No religious leader in the world can claim what Jesus claimed through these words. He is Synonymou with his message.

In "The World’s Great Religions", Huston Smith observed, “Only two people ever astounded their contemporaries so much that the question they evoked was not ‘Who is he?’ but ‘What is he?’ They were Jesus and Buddha. The answers these two gave were exactly the opposite. Buddha said unequivocally that he was a mere man, not a godalmost as if he foresaw later attempts to worship him. Jesus, on the other hand, claimed … to be divine"

Also, Jesus made it clear that his primary mission was to forgive sins, something only God could do.

Jesus’ friends and enemies were staggered again and again by what he said and did. He would be walking down the road, seemingly like any other man, then turn and say something like, ‘Before Abraham was, I am.’ Or, ‘If you have seen me, you have seen the Father.’ Or, very calmly, after being accused of blasphemy, he would say, ‘The Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.’ To the dead he might simply say, ‘Come forth,’ or, ‘Rise up.’ And they would obey. To the storms on the sea he would say, ‘Be still.’ And to a loaf of bread he would say, ‘Become a thousand meals.’ And it was done immediately.

Jesus spoke of having always existed with his Father. And when Philip asked Jesus to show them the Father, Jesus said, “Philip, have I been with you so long and you don’t know me? Whoever has seen me, has seen the Father.”
Jesus made the audacious statement, “Before Abraham was, I AM.” He told Martha and others around her, “I AM the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he is dead, yet shall he live.”.
 Likewise, Jesus would make statements like, “I AM the light of the world”,“I AM the only way to God,” or, “I AM the “truth.”
These and several other of his claims were preceded by the sacred words for God, “I AM” (ego eimi).

What did Jesus mean by such statements, and what is the significance or the term, “I AM”?
We must go back to context in the Hebrew Scriptures, when Moses asked God His name at the burning bush, God answered, “I AM.” He was revealing to Moses that He is the one and only God who is outside of time and has always existed. Incredibly, Jesus was using these holy words to describe himself.

C. S. Lewis initially considered Jesus a myth. But this literary genius who knew myths well, concluded that Jesus had to have been a real person. Furthermore, as Lewis investigated the evidence for Jesus, he became convinced that not only was Jesus real, but he was unlike any man who had ever lived. Lewis writes,
“Then comes the real shock,’ wrote Lewis: ‘Among these Jews there suddenly turns up a man who goes about talking as if He was God. He claims to forgive sins. He says He always existed. He says He is coming to judge the world at the end of time.”
In his quest for truth, Lewis knew that he could not have it both ways with the identity of Jesus. Either Jesus was who he claimed to be—God in the flesh—or his claims were false. And if they were false, Jesus could not be a great moral teacher. He would either be lying intentionally or he would be a lunatic with a God complex.

 If Jesus were to have simply dropped the claim of being God’s Son, he never would have been condemned. It was his claim to be God and his unwillingness to recant of it that got him crucified.

The eyewitnesses to Jesus Christ actually spoke and acted like they believed he physically rose from the dead after his crucifixion. If they were wrong then Christianity has been founded upon a lie. But if they were right, such a miracle would substantiate all Jesus said about God, Himself, and us.

The greatest question in human history is, “Who is the real Jesus Christ?” Bono, Lewis, and countless others have concluded that God visited our planet in human form. But if that is true, then we would expect him to be alive today. And that is exactly what his followers believe.

How to Know God

How to Know God

In the Bible, God tells us that he created us to have unending fellowship with him, peace with our fellow man, harmony and joy within our family relationships, and to have dominion over the world in which he placed us. But we chose to go another way.
We learn in the same Bible that we, through our forefathers, chose to live our lives for ourselves, rather than to have fellowship with God. This choice of selfishness (sin) lead to our earthly death, to no peace with our fellow man, to disharmony and sadness within our family relationships, and to a lack of proper care of the world in which he placed us. Because of this, our future changed to one of eternal separation (death) from fellowship with God after physical death, completely without hope of joy or peace.
The Bible goes on to record how God provided the remedy for our chosen path of selfishness (sin). He send to us His son Jesus Christ. This son lived a life of fellowship, peace, harmony, and joy in full fellowship with God. Though innocent of any wrongdoing, he voluntarily allowed himself to suffer and die as a guilty lawbreaker, and received upon himself the full penalty of our selfishness (sin) by death on a cross.
The wonderful conclusion recorded in the Bible is that this Jesus rose from the dead and returned to God. He is forever our representative before God. He enables us today to enjoy fellowship with God, peace with our fellow man, harmony and joy within our family relationships, and to exercise proper dominion over this world in which he has placed us. We need only to pray and ask him to come in and rule in our hearts and lives.
Simply talk to God and say, "Thank you, God, for loving me and sending your Son to die on the cross for the wrongs I have done. I now choose to make Jesus the Lord of my life. Help me to be the kind of person that You want me to be. In Jesus' Name, Amen."

Bible and Science

We quite often hear about contracdictions between Bible and Ccience. But is it really so? Can we have examples where Bible and Science converge?

1. Creation
For millennia, Creation theory was ridiculed for believing that the Universe was created and not evolved. In the latter half of the 20th century did evidence come out overwhelmingly on Creation side. As Dr. Arno Penzias (one of the three who received a Nobel Prize for identifying the "background radiation" that became one of the pillars of the current Big Bang cosmology) writes, "science has finally vindicated Moses (Author of the Penta books) over Aristotle ( page 78 in Margenau and Varghese, Cosmos, Bios, Theos, Open Court, 1992.)"

2. Faith of Abraham
Abraham was a maverick for believing that all the forces of the cosmos are really a single force. This is the contention of science for the past 100 years and the driving force behind the search for the Unified Field Theory (That we call the Omniptent, Omnipresent, Omniscient God)

3. Logic defied
Bible's account of Creation and of events that defy the laws of physics -- and even defy logic -- implies that the laws of logic are not absolute -- i.e. it is not impossible for those laws to have been created otherwise, and even now, the Creator could supersede them or adjust them at whim. An inkling of this kind of thinking opened the way for modern mathematics, breaking away from the Euclidian view that the axioms of geometry are absolute "self evident truths," and laying the ground for Einstein's relativity. Indeed, later attempts to demonstrate that mathematics is based on logic have all failed. Thinkers today question the absoluteness of logic itself. (Tzvi Saks, On the Nature of Truth in Mathematics, in B'Or HaTorah vol 9, pp. 95-103- "Mathematics! Another one of my mistakes")

4. Divine Providence & Principle of Uncertainity
Bible, by presenting the concept of Divine Providence within nature, requires a universe that is only loosely linear, rejecting the determinist concept that cause and effect are inherently linked. This is an outcome of the Principle of Uncertainty, first enunciated by Heisenberg in 1928. Over the past 30 years, experimentation has repeatedly affirmed this concept. (John Gribbin, In Search of Schrodinger's Cat, Bantam, 1979. Uncertainity is an inherent characteristic of the universe, that there are no perfectly knowable ("discrete") states. As Heisenberg himself put it to the philosophers of his time: Without discrete causes, there are no pre-determined effects -- and determinism is out the window)

5. Matter not an isolated Entity E=MC2
Bible does not talk in terms of matter as a self-contained substance, but as an event, a 'word'. Today we understand matter as simply a dynamic of concentrated energy, as in the familiar formula E=mc2. Or, in physicist David Bohm's definition, "That which unfolds, whatever the medium".

6. Witnesses & Intuition
Bible relies on witnesses and observation over intuition. This is called empiricism. It is what distinguishes the Scientist from the Hellenist or medieval philosopher.

7. Role of Human Mind
Bible recognizes the role of human consciousness as an active, rather than passive participant in forming reality. This is the basis for the standard model of quantum mechanics first enunciated by John von Neumann in 1932. (1. Tzvi Freeman, Knowledge and Reality, Chabad.org., 2001; 2.In Mathematical Foundations of Quantum Mechanics. Eugene Wigner later became the major proponent of this idea)

8. Concept of Synergy
Bible consistently relies on the concept of synergy: The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
In old testament -Israel as Nation, in new testament - the Church, Jesus' teaching of unity in prayer are all ruled by this principle.
This has become an essential principle in many modern disciplines, from sociology to chemistry too.

 9. Quantum
Bible, in many halachic applications, relies on "quantum" -- smallest possible increments of change within space and time. This was the postulate of Max Planck that opened the field of quantum mechanics.

10. Genetics
Bible describes all of humankind as descending from a single man and a single woman.The overwhelming genetic evidence concurs, although the dating is still somewhat skewed. They're still catching up. {Men (y chromosone) from Noah. Women (mitochondrial DNA) from Eve. The women on the ark were from various families, while the men were from a single father and mother.}

11. Cosmos
Bible describes planet earth and the entire cosmos in holistic terms. Science today is moving sharply in this direction, in life sciences and in physics and cosmology.

12. Archaeological evidences
Bible provides inference to many of the customs, beliefs, politics, technologies, etc. of ancient times at which historians once balked and archeologists have only recently confirmed.

13. Governance
Bible prescribes constitutional governance. public education and popular involvement. Sociologists describe how these elements generate stability and productivity in a society.

14. Environment
Bible prescribes a responsible stewardship of our environment which is the creastion and gift of God. First man Adam was put in charge of the garden Aden. Today we have demonstrated that such an approach is the only one possible for sustainable life on the planet.

James Gilmour - 'Appostle' to Mongolia

Mongolia is now a developing economy and the capital Ulaanbaatar is connected by flight. 100 years back that was not the case. Since I am in Mongolia, I was searhing the history of Gospel in this place. I came across these great people. I praise and thank God foe them. These days God is visiting this place beacuse of these people I believe.


James Gilmour (1843-1891) was a Scottish missionary to Mongolia who made lonely, heroic efforts to preach the gospel to a people steeped in Lamaist forms of Buddhism; spending summers with nomadic Mongols on the plains of Mongolia and winters with Mongols in Peking. After his wife died in 1885, he labored in eastern Mongolia until his death at age 47, after 21 years of missionary service.

Emily Prankard Gilmour: Traveled from London, England, to Mongolia to marry James Gilmour on December 8, 1874. Learned to speak the Mongol language and willingly shared her husband's experiences and dangers. Twice she spent the summer travelling about the plains of Mongolia with him, sleeping in a tent, and enduring hardships. Physically unable to endure such a hard life, she worked among the Chinese girls in Peking, where her husband joined her in the winter to work among the Mongols who came there. They had three boys: James (Jimmie), William (Willie), and Alexander (Alec or Alick) who died as a toddler. Mrs. Gilmour died on September 19, 1885, not long after the birth of their third son.

Hero of 'What I can Give'

Today I read in the facebook Former Indian President Dr. APJ Kalam's great gesture of appreciating the Industrialist in Kochi (India) Mr. Kochouseph Chittellappilly.

What Dr. Kalam wrote on Mr. Chittellappilly is reproduced below:
https://www.facebook.com/#!/OfficialKalam
"Yesterday , I inaugurated the 31st NIPM National Conference at Kochi where a number of HR managers, industrialists, academicians and students were present. There I met a special person who was given a special recognition amidst the gatheri...
ng. His name is Shri Kochouseph Chittilappilly (in pic) and he is a well-known industrialist in the field of electrical equipment, construction and services in the nation and the state. He has been amongst the highest taxpayers in the state and is also very active in the social service domain.
In 2011, in a touching gesture of giving, Mr. Chittilappilly donated his own kidney to an unknown ailing poor truck driver. This set in motion a unique movement called, “The Kidney Chain”, wherein a relative of one patient would donate to another patient, whose relative will in turn donate onwards and so on. Moreover, over 500 employees of his own company pledged to donate their organs after death.
What a great spirit of giving is exhibited by this self-made industrialist. Yesterday, when I saw the radiant smiling face of Mr. Chittilappilly, one thought immediately came to my mind – Giving makes you happy."
(Dr. APJ Kalam, former President of the Republic of  India)
 
The recognition of Mr. Kochouseph as a hero of 'What I can Give' by such a big personality like Dr. Kalam is great. It is because of his sacrificial giving of one of his vital organ - kidney.
 
When I read the news of  Kochouseph's gesture in the news paper some time back in Kochi, I had thought about it. There are people who are ready to donate organ after their death. It is good. But how many can donate their vital oragn like kidney while they are living? May be some are ready to give to their dear and near ones incase of dire need to save their life.
But Chittillappally gave it to some unknown person whom he never knew. It is real sacrifice.
I appreciate and salute mr. Chittillappilly Ouseph.
 
But still a greate sacrifice - Biggest Hero of 'What I can Give'!!!
I want to tell you of bigger sacrifice. It is none but Jesus Christ's.
God gave his only son Jesus Christ to save mankind.
Jesus Christ gave his Life and Blood to save sinners from Eternal Damnation.
 
Chittillappilly's kidney can extend the life of the patient for few more years.
 
But what after that?
Where will be the etenity?
 
Jesus Christ gave his life and blood so that You will live Eternally.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son Jesus Christ that whoever believe in Him will not persish, But will have eternal Life" (John 3:16 - Bible)
 
 
If you believe this, You will have eternal life.
Otherwise how long you live in this world does not matter, But after that your fate will be Hell.
 
 
 
 
God Bless You
 

 

Second Law of Thermodynamics - Law of Etropy

Second Law of Thermonamics - Law of Entropy is an established law according to which a system left to itself will increase its entropy. Entropy is a measure of 'disorder' in a system. This means, any system left to iself will move from an orderly state to a disorderly state (from good to bad).

This law can be seen in nature. An abondoned motor bike will never become better, it will start eroding and finally good for nothing. An abandoned building also has the same fate. Any system cannot move from bad to good by itself. Making something better needs an external involvement by some one.
This law can be seen every where. But mind, the theory of evolution is just the opposite. From nothing to something and from an Amoeba to Man who is more orderly in milllion ways.

Human nature is also same by the law. Have a natural life and live as you like, the result will be damnation and hell. It is because of the sinful nature of man. He has always the love for bad things and not for good things (a carnal mind).

Bible says "There is none good, even one", "All has sinned and lost the glory of God" (Romans Chapter 3).
To make man good, God has to involve in the life of man.
Jesus Christ who was God came into this earth to involve in the life of man and make him a better person, from Eternal Condemnation to Eternal Life.
Bible says - He died on the cross as a substitute of the condemnation every man should have suffered.
Those who believe in him will be devoid of the eternal condemnation.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His Only begotten Son Jesus Christ that whoever believe in Him should not perish, but will have Eternal Life" (Bible -John 3:16)

There is an end to this universe (by the law of  Entropy itself), God is going to involve in this Universe which is moving to worse. There is an end to your life in this world.
But that is not the end, there is life beyond.
Think of what is your destination after death? It depends on your selection and decision now.
God does not want any body to go to hell. So only He gave Jesus Christ.
