They Disobeyed me and Tested me TEN Times!!!

At the gate of the Promised Land, when the people of Israel refused to enter Caanan and wanted to go back to Egypt, Lord says - These people who have seen my Glory and miraculous signs have Disobeyed and Tested Me 10 times!!! (Numbers 14:22)

Let us look what are the 10 ways in which people of Israel tested God and in which occassions.

(1) You have brought us from Egypt to kill in this wilderness? - Exodus 14:11 
People redeemed from the slavery of egypt by passover and the shedding of the blood of the lamb now when faced with Pharoah's army behind them and the Red Sea before them says!!

Do people redeemed by the blood of Jesus when faced with such situations also say so - You brought me to this faith to kill?

(2) What shall we drink? - Exodus 15:25
At mara they expected sweet water, but the water is bitter!
After drinking all the waters of the Blue River Nile in Egypt, they expect sweet water in wilderness!

Do you complain for lack of sweet things of this world?

(3) What will we eat? - Exodus 16:3
You have brought us to this wilderness to starve and kill.
We would have preferred to be killed before the flesh pots and after eating full!
Some people wants a full stomach even when they die.

Are you hungry for the worldly things?

(4) Can God provide for tomorrow? - Exodus 16:19 
God's promise is for provision for each day. Jesus taught "Give us this day our daily bread"
But people wants to pile up and hoard for tomorrow.
Even God's people have a lot of savings and invetsments planned for tomorrow.
But it will all rot and stink.

(5) Give us Water - Exodus 17:1-
Most serious rebellion against God. They rebelled and was about to stome moses.
Psalm 95 and Hebrews Ch 3 further elaborates how serious the rebellion of Israel was.
Will God be able to provided us with water in this rocky wilderness?
At Mara there were atleast some water.

The quarrel of the people led to the striking of the Rock at Horeb which symbolizes the future suffering & death of Jesus on behalf of rebellious mankind.

(6) Idolatory (and Immorality) Exodus 32
The moment the law (Ten Commandments) was given, they broke it and made a Golden calf to be their god. They were is sexual immorality and revelry.

Have you any idols in your life, more important than Jesus?

(7) Murmuring - Numbers 11:1-3
For no specific reason, they murmur.
A group of discontended people. They wont be contended at any time.

Do you murmur and are you discontended?
Paul says - I have learned to be contended even with and without

(8) Who will give us flesh? - Numbers 11:4-
They have contempt for the heavenly food manna and crave for flesh?

Does the spiritual matters bore you and you crave for wordly things?

(9) Let us send Spies and see whether the land is fit? (Numbers 13;1-, Duet 1:20-25)
God said - Behold the Promised Land which flows Honey & Milk is before you, you enter and posses.
But people said, Let us test the land through spies!

Do you want to test God's promise and then possess? You willnever possess!!

(10) We donot want the promised land, Let us go back to Egypt! - Numbers 14:1
A rebellious nation who rebell consistently against God and His promises
So they wandered for 40 years and their bodies were strewn in the wilderness.

Hebrew Chapter 3 advises us
Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,
Psa 95:7

Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
Psa 95:8


When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
Psa 95:9


Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
Psa 95:10


So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
Psa 95:11


Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.


But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.


For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

May God Bless You

"Every Third Child should be Killed in the Womb"?????!!! - Justice VR Krsihna IYer

Kerala's famous Juriprudist Justice V R Krsihna Iyer in a recent report to the Kerala Govt on "Women & Children's Welfare Code" recommended that every thrid child to parents should be killed in the womb for a welfare society!!
Alas, the right to live exists only for two children.
Does the unborn child or even the born ones can choose to be the first or second of the parent?

Mr Krsihna Iyer due to his old memory (He is 95 now) forgot that his parents had 7 children, and  all the five born after him - Ranganayaki, Vijayalakshmi, Meenakshi, Ramachandran and Lakshinarayanan would not have seen sunlight if he had made the recommendation immediately after his birth.!!!
In the secular world the unborn child has no right.
Bible is the only book which teaches about a God whose plan for an Individual is even before eternity.

Psalm 139v13-16 says that God sees and cares you while you had no form in your mother's womb:
13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

ABORTION IS MURDER more cruel than killing a born person.

Picture for representative purposes only.Bible again says - Children are a blessing:

Children are a heritage from the LORD,
offspring a reward from him.
4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are children born in one’s youth.
5 Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them
They will not be put to shame
when they contend with their opponents in court.

Today even in the secular world Human Capital is the biggest Capital.
Indian Software Indsutry thrives on Intelligent Human Capital.

Many of the famous personalities would not have been alive today, If Krsihna Iyer's policy was implemented.
Krishna Iyer thinks that he is lucky that he was the second child!!!

Philosophy of LOVE

The philosophy of love transcends a variety of sub-disciplines including epistemology, metaphysics, religion, human nature, politics and ethics. Often statements or arguments concerning love, its nature and role in human life for example, connect to one or all the central theories of philosophy, and is often compared with, or examined in the context of, the philosophies of sex and gender. The task of a philosophy of love is to present the appropriate issues in a cogent manner, drawing on relevant theories of human nature, desire, ethics, and so on.

The Nature of Love: Eros, Philia, and Agape

 Love has a “nature,” a proposition that some may oppose arguing that love is conceptually irrational, in the sense that it cannot be described in rational or meaningful propositions.
In English, the word “love,” which is derived from Germanic forms of the Sanskrit lubh (desire), is broadly defined and hence imprecise, which generates first order problems of definition and meaning, which are resolved to some extent by the reference to the Greek terms, eros, philia, and agape.

a. Eros
The term eros is used to refer to that part of love constituting a passionate, intense desire for something; it is often referred to as a sexual desire, hence the modern notion of “erotic”.
Many philosophers hold that love is an intrinsically higher value than appetitive or physical desire. Physical desire is held the animal kingdom too. Hence, it is of a lower order of reaction and stimulus than a rationally induced love—that is, a love produced by rational discourse and exploration of ideas, which in turn defines the pursuit of Ideal beauty. Hence the physical love of an object, an idea, or a person in itself is not a proper form of love, love being a reflection of that part of the object, idea, or person, that partakes in Ideal beauty.

b. Philia
Philia entails a fondness and appreciation of the other. It is not just friendship, but also loyalties to family and political community, job, or discipline. According to Aristotle’s notion of philia, “things that cause friendship are: doing kindnesses; doing them unasked; and not proclaiming the fact when they are done” . This in another way is parental love too.
Friendships may also be based on the pleasure or utility that is derived from another’s company. A business friendship is based on utility–on mutual reciprocity of similar business interests; once the business is at an end, then the friendship dissolves.

c. Agape
Agape refers to the love of God for man.   It seeks a perfect kind of love that is at once a fondness, a transcending of the particular, and a passion without the necessity of reciprocity. It is sacrificial Love. The recepient may not deserve the love at all.
The concept is expanded on in the Judaic-Christian tradition of loving God: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might” (Deuteronomy 6:5) and loving “thy neighbour as thyself” (Leviticus 19:18). The love of God requires absolute devotion.
The universalist command to “love thy neighbor as thyself” refers the subject to those surrounding him, whom he should love unilaterally. Jesus Christ further elecated this love to a newer dimension when he said "Love Your Enemy".
He demonstrated in his life. "For God demonstrated His own Love towards us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.......For if when we were enimies (to God) we were reconciled to God through the death of His own Son (Jesus Christ)" (1 Corinthians 5:8,10). (Bible)

Writer Apostle Paul sings of this Agape Love in his letter 1Corithians Chapter 13 (Bible)

The Beutiful song goes as below:

1 Corinthians 13

1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is (Agape) Love

Germany to Kill all its Nuke Plants by 2022

MERKEL Govt has decided to shutdown all German Nuclear Power Plants by 2022 as an aftermath of Japanese Fkushima Nuclear Disaster.

Eistien's Mass / Energy equation E=MCxC is very famous and scientists were very jubilient at it as the source enormous energy by conversion of material into energy.
Second half of twentieth century saw the build up of lot of nuclear reactors for defense as well as energy purposes.
Scientists thought they have tamed the un-tamable - 'atom' the foundation to matter, and everything is under their control and they can do damn manipulation of the fundamental nuclear space!!!.

But sad that Tsunami in Japan and fakushima disaster proved it all otherwise.
Nothing is under control and the impossible can happen at any time.
Small waves of the ocean can create havoc to nations like Japan, before which the helpless man is no more mighty.
Other nations will follow Germany in fear of the unknown.

True, Earth is yet to see the disasters which is going to happen.
It is all revealed in the Holy Scripture - Bible
Please read Isiah Chapetr 24

A Testimonial For the Godly from the LORD

Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD
hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for
them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my
jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked,
between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

Malachi 3:16-18
