PEACE ON EARTH NOW 2

HERE AND NOWPEACE ON EARTH NOW

Jesus shows us the way to be in the world without being of it. When we model our lives on His, a new world will open up for us. The Kingdom of Heaven will be ours, and the earth today will be our inheritance. We will be comforted and have our fill; mercy will be shown to us.

Yes, we will be recognized as God’s children and truly see God, not just in an afterlife, but here and now: ““Blessed [inwardly peaceful] are the gentle [the kind-hearted], for they will inherit the earth… Blessed are those who are persecuted for doing that which is morally right, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven [both now and forever].” Matthew 5: 5, 10 That is the reward of modeling our lives on the life of Jesus!

We who are Christians must pray, read the bible and let our Lord lead us. Easy? No, for we are human and we have our thoughts and our feelings.

Walking in faith is not easy: we want the pleasures of the world at times, but turn away from that for it is not the way of Jesus. When we pray to our Lord, we find peace and contentment on earth NOW!

This world is not our home.

We will have a heavenly home one day – free of sin and violence.

EXHILARATING HEAVEN

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT: ARE YOU READY TO GO?

There’s nothing wrong with retirement, but it only lasts a few decades at best.

You know that the death rate is 100 percent! You may also be discouraged and afraid of death and you want to know your purpose on earth or you are uncertain of your future. Maybe you’re skeptical about God and the afterlife or you’re not a Christian.

Most people, whether Christ-followers or not, have a horrible view of Heaven. At best it’s a cloudy, ethereal, disembodied, nonphysical experience—yeah, maybe with love, joy, and no suffering sprinkled in—but if we’re honest, we don’t really get excited about it. We can’t imagine actually liking it. At worst, people think of it as an endless, boring church service, singing songs you’re not excited about—forever! That sounds horrible!

“What have you done with your life?”

You may now at least begin to address the inevitable question,  What have you done with your life to show God? . . . The question, like everything else proceeding from Him, has to do with love: How much have you loved with your life? Have you loved others as God loves you? Totally? Unconditionally?

The main reason many people (Christian or not) live materialistic, self-centered lifestyles is a poor view of the life to come. Some people still think Heaven will be boring. It’s really a no-brainer! The rewards to come are out of this world: Heaven is a beautiful, incredible dream world.

EXHILARATING HEAVEN

Are you prepared for life after death?

After presenting research combined with incisive commentary and critique, We asks this ultimate question: Its last breath here, next breath somewhere else! They can’t imagine Heaven, so they don’t live for it. But all the great heroes of faith “were looking for a better place, a heavenly homeland. That is why God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them”                                      Hebrews 11:16

SEARCH FOR GOD

What if heaven is better than our wildest dreams?

And what if how you live really does matter for the Life to come? That would change how we live, work, love, sacrifice—wouldn’t it? If there’s even a shadow of a chance that this is true, you had better find out—nothing is more important. It should even motivate you to read more of the Bible. The central theme of the Bible is that God wants a relationship of love with you and every person created.

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him”                  I Corinthians 2:9

“Thrones were set in place,and the Ancient (God the Father) of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow;
 the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze.                                                                A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before him.
Thousands upon thousands attended Him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him.
The court was seated, and the books were opened. Daniel 7:9-10 

When the books are opened, how will you plead? Please don’t say you haven’t been warned!

WHAT A PREDICTION!

In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a Son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into His presence. 14 He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and His kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.” Daniel 13-14 The Dead Sea Scrolls attest the  prophet, Daniel predated Jesus’ birth by 150 to 350 years.  

ONE FINAL THOUGHT

C.S. Lewis once said, “If you read history, you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were just those who thought most of the next. . . . Aim at Heaven and you will get earth ‘thrown in’: aim at earth and you will get neither.” “

“Earth thrown in” means we want the pleasures of the world at times, but turn away from that for it is not the way of Jesus. When we pray to our Lord, we find peace and contentment on earth NOW! Try it and you will see!

GOD WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

peace on earth

The Greatest Gift you can Give Me

“I love you.

The greatest gift you can give Me is prayer from the heart. I wait for you and for all My friends every morning to come and join Me in contemplative prayer, the great prayer of the heart.

Come focus on Me and give your undivided attention to Me in this heart to heart prayer. Open yourselves to Me in profound listening in humility. 

Let Me remove the turmoil from your heart and fill you with My peace. I speak to you when you are at peace with a heart filled with love.

Come spend time with Me and wait for My touch and anointing. Absorb the love I am showering upon you and taste the joy of My presence.

You are truly My brother and sister if you come close to Me through prayer. I will give you My heart and I will put My thoughts in your minds.

I will strengthen you against the evil one to say ‘no’ to his schemes and plans. All this will begin through prayer fueled by deep faith in Me.

My dear friend, sickness and suffering are part of life. Without Me these adversities are difficult to handle. They can bring depression and despair. With Me, these difficult times can be opportunities to come to know Me better, to turn your life around and come closer to Me.

It is at such times that you can break with bad habits such as smoking, using My name in vain, drinking, gambling, gossiping, etc. With My grace you will be made new.

I love you with a burning love. Do not delay to come to Me. Let our love relationship grow from day to day. Do not be afraid but have trust in Me as a child has trust in his parents. I am your brother who loves you. I bless you all.”

The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:

Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.

The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ.

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

VOODOO SPIRITUALITY 2

VOODOOISMvoodooism spiritual beings loa

Vodou is primarily practiced in Haiti, New Orleans, and other locations within the Caribbean. There is great variation within Voodoo beliefs and practices. Many Vodou practitioners also consider themselves Catholics. Voodooism involves spiritual beings.

voodooism spiritual beings

As well as being the priest or priestess, the houngan acts as confessor, confidential and financial advisor, prophet and healer for the people in the community. But the houngan is more a folk healer with a considerable knowledge of herbal remedies who treats minor illnesses. While selling love potions and protective charms, including small bags to be worn for protection or for good luck, may be a lucrative side business for a priest or priestess, the primary occupation is still as a spiritual leader of his community. Voodooists especially places value on the strength of community for support.

Loa or Spiritual Beings

The spirits of death, The Guédé are really an enormous group of the loa who are the spirits of formerly living people. He is the one who controls the passage between life and death. In ritual, he is often offered black goats or chickens. The most frequently performed ritual in Voodoo is one that invokes a particular loa (supernatural beings) to offer food to him and seek his presence on earth.

The most important components of a human body, however, are the two parts of the soul, the ti-bon-ange (‘little good angel’) and the gros-bon-ange (‘great good angel’). The gros-bon-age keeps the body alive, and after death, it returns to the reservoir of energy in the cosmos. Without the gros-bon-ange a person loses his/ her life-force. The ti-bon-ange makes up the half of a person’s soul and it is the source of a person’s personality. Furthermore, it is responsible for determining an individual’s characteristics, personality and will.

In Voodoo belief, death is not seen as the end of life, but as a change. The soul – the gros-bon-ange and the ti-bon-ange – endures after death in a different form. The gros-bon-ange returns to the high solar regions where it joins the other loa (supernatural being) and is itself transformed into a loa. Approximately a year after the death, the houngan (priest) performs a ritual, to ensure that the ti-bon-ange is put to rest. This ritual is very important because otherwise the ti-bon-ange may wonder the earth and bring illness and disaster on others.

A Distinctive Human Soul

 A human person is a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL BEING with a spiritual soul and a material body. Human beings alone are created in the image and likeness of God; and therefore, possess rational and spiritual souls: a human person is a body/soul composite.

Human Soul Sikhism

Why is this Extremely Dangerous?

Voodoo believers must invoke spells to pacify angry spirits.  The dark side of voodoo is used by participants to summon evil spirits and cast hexing spells upon adversaries. “Voodoo” has become part of modern folklore as something evil that can hurt us. There are terrifying stories about people who were affected by curses that had been placed upon them

In Voodooism, death is a transition to the invisible world, so our predecessors are still with us in spirit. They watch over and inspire us. Divinity is found in the act of ritual itself, in chanting and drumming and dancing to call the immortal spirits down from the cosmic plane where they live that infuses the practitioners with divine power.

DANGEROUS UNGODLY SUPERSTITIOUS BELIEFS

Voodoo doesn’t pray to a Personal GOD. Why?

The “great good God,” although loving, is distant, and somewhat above individual human concerns.

The Mouse’s Search for the Cat

The unproved assumption of this very common mountain analogy is that the roads go up, not down; that man makes the roads, not God; that religion is man’s search for God, not God’s search for man.  C. S. Lewis says this sounds like the mouse’s search for the cat”.

Taoism

Christianity is not a system of man’s search for God but a story of God’s search for man.  True religion is not like a cloud of incense wafting up from special spirits into the nostrils of a waiting God, but like a Father’s hand thrust downward to rescue the fallen. 

Taoism

Taoism Pantheism

The Word of God: came to us from the Bible

In the beginning God made from nothing the heavens and the earth.”                                                                                                           Genesis 1:1

“He made from one blood all nations who live on the earth. He set the times and places where they should live. They were to look for God. Then they might feel after Him and find Him because He is not far from each one of us. It is in Him that we live and move and keep on living.”                                                                                    Acts 17:26-28

 “The heavens are telling of the greatness of God and the great open spaces above show the work of His hands.”                Psalm 19:1

”Lord, You have been the place of comfort for all people of all time. Before the mountains were born, before You gave birth to the earth and the world, forever and ever, You are God.”   Psalm 90:1, 2

Are all religions are the same, deep down?

By Catholic standards, the religions of the world can be ranked by how much truth they teach.

  • Catholicism is first, with Orthodoxy equal except for the one issue of papal authority.
  • Then comes Protestantism and any “separated brethren” who keep the Christian essentials as found in sola scriptura (Latin: by Scripture alone) is a theological doctrine which holds that the Christian Scriptures are the sole infallible rule of faith and practice.
  • Third comes traditional Judaism, which worships the same God but not via Christ.
  • Fourth is Islam: the greatest of the theistic heresies.
  • Fifth, Hinduism: a mystical pantheism;
  • Sixth, Buddhism: pantheism without a theos (God);
  • Seventh, Christian Cults: Mormonism or Later Day Saints, Jehovah’s Witnesses; Voodooism
  • Eighth, modern Judaism, Unitarianism, Unification Church, whose members are often called “Moonies”, Confucianism, Falun Gong, Taoism, New Age, Modernism, Christian Science, Scientology and secular humanism, none of which have either mysticism or supernatural religion but only ethics;
  • Ninth, idolatry connotes the worship of something or someone other than God as if it were God.; and
  • Tenth, Satanism and Wicca contacting and convening with Satan as a supernatural being or force worthy of connection. They claim there is power here but it comes from the wrong source: BE WARNED! 

 

VOODOO CULTURE AND FAMILY

In the end, one’s conversion will benefit the whole family because of the gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance available. A prayer of deliverance (of evil spirits) will leave a Voodoo member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple will bring about 80% healing, and the remaining healing will come about with a convert’s prayer of praise and thanksgiving. This healing comes through the Name of Jesus Christ and no other god or deity. This should be proof enough of the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.

THE FALSE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION

Here is a passage that comes from a BIBLE ABOUT RELIGION:

 “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and vain deceit, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2:8

Let’s analyze this more closely:

 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the elementary principles of this world, rather than following [the truth—the teachings of] Christ.                                                                  Colossians 2:8

So, one should not accept philosophy of mere speculation and imagination, but of the modest, laborious investigation of facts.

Vain Deceit is, that which is vain and empty, and has no solid foundation, and even deceitful and delusional.

Christianity is not a philosophy, but a relationship with God in Christ TODAYnot knowledge of abstract principles.

How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus.

BUDDHISM NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE 2

BUDDHISM & NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE 

near death experience

Are there NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE in which a Buddhist encountered Buddha? YES!

Dr. Atwater is an international authority on near- death states as well as a near-death experiencer. She is one of the original researchers in the field of near-death studies, having begun her work in 1978. More than 3,000 people are registered at her discussion form site, and we understand that they have one of the largest databases on NDEs in the world.

We challenged them to find even one case of a person of Buddhist faith encountering other beings of light. The implication is that there is only one path to God through Jesus Christ: “I am the Light and the Way”.                                                                                                                   John 14:6

Where arguments arise amongst various people and groups is over the interpretation of that light and any form it make take, and how to regard it.

Scientists say it is endorphins; Muslims say it is fantasy; religious fundamentalists of any “stripe” say it is Satan (Lucifer). People of faith say it is either of God or of emissaries from God.

Numerous experiencers see figures and forms in the light. These are variously described as angels, guides, guardians, light beings (beings made entirely of light), religious figures, high holy ones and often kids call them “the people.”

The vast majority of individuals remain consistent overtime with what they say and do not distort original narratives. That means accusations of New Age jargon, religious prophesy, Christian visions, Western indulgences, or the like, are untrue.

There can be mixups as in the case of Jeanie Dicus. She was a Jewess yet she was visited by Jesus. This so surprised her and confounded her that she promptly challenged Jesus, and continued to do so throughout her entire near-death episode, saying: “I don’t believe in You. Why are You here?”

Atheists report the same type of visitations as do religious folk. In other words, you don’t have to believe in anything to be surprised at what you find when you nearly die.

Where this situation gets fascinating is when you invite experiencers to draw the high holy one/religious figure who visited them. To a person, you cannot tell the difference between a drawing from someone in the State of Wyoming from one done in Thailand or Israel or Russia or China or Nigeria. Patterning holds; differences in patterning only concern a few details of dress and behavior. They certainly don’t look like Buddha.

JESUS BUDDHA

Whoever the Holy One is, that Being is held in great esteem and experienced as awesome, sacred beyond sacred, above and beyond anyone else.

If the individual has a sense of Deity, there simply are no words to encompass or express what that feeling is. “I have tried to explain ‘Beyond the Light’ but really, it’s impossible to do so.”

Dr. Atwater still tears up when embraced by the Presence of God that she experienced during her third episode back in 1977. That Presence and the passion she felt for it has fueled by steps since then, and is the very breath she breathes.

Upon a full search on Google and YouTube for “Buddhist NDEs”, the only ones that can be found are of a hellish or unhappy nature.

BUDDHIST CHRISTIANITY

All the faiths, with the exception of Buddhism, teach that there is a God who is  a “Creator” who has created the cosmos. 

There is even question of whether Buddhism should be called a religion and not rather a religious culture: it is pantheism without a theos (God). Consequently no one has ever seen Buddha in a Near Death Experience.

BUDDHISM NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE

AS TOLD BY ATHET PYAN SHINTHAW PAULU

A Zealous Disciple of Buddha

When I turned 19 years (in 1977), I became a normal monk. The senior monk at my monastery gave me a new Buddhist name, which is the custom in our country.  For years I strive to be the best monk I could and not to harm any living being. I studied the holy Buddhist teachings just like all my forefathers had done before me. 

A Vision that Changed My Life Forever

I learned later that I actually died for three days (Near Death Experience). I was confused with this vision and didn’t know it was hell until I saw Yama, the king of hell [Yama is the name ascribed to the King of Hell in numerous cultures throughout Asia]. His face looked like the face of a lion, his body was like a lion, but his legs were like a naga [serpent spirit]. He had a number of horns on his head. His face was very fierce, and I was extremely afraid. Trembling, I asked him his name. He replied, “I am the king of hell, the Destroyer.”

The king of hell told me to look into the lake of fire.  I asked him why my former leader was confined to this lake of torment. He replied, “Yes, he was a good teacher but he did not believe in Jesus Christ. That’s why he is in hell.”

The Road of DecisionRoad of Decision

I started walking down the believers’ road. After a while the surface of the road turned to pure gold. The man in the white robe asked me to walk with him. He said, “I am the one who holds the key to heaven. Heaven is a very, very beautiful place. You cannot go there now but if you follow Jesus Christ you can go there after your life has finished on the earth.” The man’s name was Peter. You will be called ‘Paul who came back to life’.

He has remained a faithful witness to the Lord Jesus Christ. He exhorted other monks to forsake all false gods and follow Jesus Christ with all their hearts. Before the time of his sickness and death he had no exposure to Christianity at all. Everything that he learned

 

BUDDHIST CULTURE AND FAMILY

There is a lot of good in Buddhism. Christians do not come with a spirit of criticism or superiority. We can appreciate in Buddhism: the teaching that children obey their parents, including many aspects of morality, teaching against alcohol intoxication, opposing fornication and other forms of immorality. 

Christians do not want to destroy the Buddhist culture and Buddhist way of life and replace it with Christian customs and Christian way of life. We realize that there may be a loss of one’s relationship with their family.

In the end, one’s conversion will benefit the whole family because of the gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance available. A prayer of deliverance (of evil spirits) will leave a Buddhist member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple will bring about 80% healing, and the remaining healing will come about with a convert’s prayer of praise and thanksgiving.

EXHILARATING HEAVEN 2

EXHILARATING HEAVENTHE EXHILARATING FUTURE THAT AWAITS YOU

In his book, IMAGINE HEAVEN, John Burke writes about survivors brought back from near death who lived to tell of both heavenly and hellish experiences. While not every detail of individual NDEs correlate with Scripture, Burke shows how the common experiences shared by thousands of survivors–including doctors, college professors, bank presidents, people of all ages and cultures, and even blind people–point to the exhilarating picture of Heaven promised in the Bible.

EXHILARATING HEAVEN

The consistency of these experiences is amazing. People world-wide almost all experience a very similar ” Being of light” –some know him immediately as Jesus, while others call him by the name of their god, such as certain Indian gods.

In NO case did the “Being of light” resemble any of the gods that these people worshiped–they identified it as their god because they didn’t know what else to think. But in the overwhelming majority of cases, the “Being of light” is described exactly as Jesus is described either in the Bible itself, or by tradition: having a beard and wearing a white, glowing robe.

So, in essence, people world-wide, of all faiths and backgrounds, predominately from Muslim, Hindu, and Buddhist countries see the same “Being of light.” There are accounts of former atheists (who remained atheists until their death, but were brought back) who then became devout Christians based on their Jesus encounter after death. 

EXHILARATING HEAVEN

EVERYONE who is brought back has another chance, but it is phenomenal to me that even those who have denied Christ for their whole lives were nevertheless in some cases ultimately granted salvation by faith in Christ. 

The Son of Man was wearing a long robe with a gold sash across His chest. His head and His hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And His eyes were like flames of fire. His feet were like polished bronze. His voice thundered like mighty ocean waves. His face was like the sun in all its brilliance. He laid His hand on me and said, “Don’t be afraid! I am the first and the last. I am the Living One. I died , but look – I am alive forever and ever! I hold the keys of death and the grave.”

EXHILARATING HEAVEN

After passing through from that very dark tunnel, it has changed to very bright light. That Light welcoming me very warmly and loves me very much. My words to the Light before I [revived] was this: Jesus implored me not to live for earthly treasures and material junk that won’t last, but to live every day with an eye on eternity.

I really changed how I feel about death, my life now, and things I have done in my past. Although I don’t know when my time will be up I know that there are things I want to do on earth that I will get done but I am also looking forward to the day when I will be reunited with my GOD and will get to go HOME to my heavenly Father.

Death frees us from the boundaries of chronology and brings us into God’s “time,” which is timeless. There is no “past,” “present,” or “future.” God is all in all for those who are no longer in time.

For us who still live in time, it is important not to act as if the new life in Christ is something we can comprehend or explain. God’s heart and mind are greater than ours. All that is asked of us is trust.                                                 Henry Nouwen

While interpretations vary, the shared core experience points to what the Scriptures say: “Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky… But our citizenship is in heaven… the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body.                                                              Philippians 2:15; 34:20, 21

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

EXHILARATING HEAVEN

Do Everything with Heaven in Mind.

 “I love you.

We are in the desert sitting at the entrance to the cave where I rest. 

I call you to think of heaven, the destiny of all people who follow Me in this world.  All the saints in heaven see God as He is in all His glory and this beatific vision is the source of their great joy. 

Everyone in heaven lives in perfect union with the Lord because they already have been purified from all their sins and their imperfections.  There is absolutely no division and no selfishness among the saints in heaven.  Only harmony, unity, and love flowers in their hearts. 

While you are on earth do everything with heaven in mind.  All the joys and all the sufferings you experience and you endure on earth can never compare with the joys of heaven. 

Cooperate daily with all the graces I give you and when your time on earth is over I am coming to take you with Me. 

Never jeopardize your eternity by giving in to the temptations of Satan. 

Consecrate yourselves to Me in total obedience, always keep your eyes fixed on Me, and pray, pray, pray.  I bless you.”

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

CAN RELATIVES IN HEAVEN HEAR OUR PRAYERS? 2

CAN SAINTS IN HEAVEN HEAR OUR PRAYERS?

 “In heaven the elders and angels offer up the prayers of the saints [on earth] as incense before the throne of God”                                                                                                                                                      Revelation 5:8; 8:3-4

 This implies that the angels and elders (holy Christians now in heaven) hear the prayers of every Christian on earth, and join their prayer now with ours: they can hear our prayers.

We can indeed ask the angels and saints for their prayers. They can hear us and respond to us by praying for us. This is not idolatry. Idolatry would only occur if one believed that a saint or angel would give you something that our Lord would not.      

God provides everything we need for us to be transformed into the image of Christ in this life.

If we die in the state of grace but before we have been fully conformed to the image of Christ, purgatory will complete that process for us.  The process of purgatory has been compared to the refiners touch. The souls of our loved ones must be saved by prayer from torments .

RELATIVES HEAVEN PRAYERS

LOST IN PURGATORY: the Immortal Soul

“Then in anger his master handed him over to the torturers until he should pay back the whole debt. So will my heavenly Father do to you, unless each of you forgives his brother from his heart.”                                                                                                              Matthew 18: 34,35

Doesn’t that sound like a form of purgatory to you: until he should pay back the whole debt.”?

Message from a soul in Purgatory to a mystic:                                                         “I know when you pray for me, and it is the same with all of the other souls here in Purgatory. Very few of us here get any prayers; the majority of us are totally abandoned, with no thought or prayers offered for us from those on earth Continue to pray; I will repay you later on. When I am released you will see that I will do far more for you than you have ever done for me.”

YOUR LOVED ONES

As we get older, the majority of those we love best are dead. What sort of intercourse with God could we have, if what we love best were not important to Him?                                                            C.S. Lewis

So where does that leave your loved one? You probably never even considered the possibility of purgatory: no thought, no prayers, no hope. You may even have been taught that there is no purgatory, because it has not been mentioned specifically by name in the Bible.

RELATIVES HEAVEN PRAYERS

YOUR LOVED ONES ARE TOTALLY HELPLESS.

But your loved ones could be in purgatory and they can no longer do anything for themselves; they are totally helpless. If the living does not pray for them; they are totally abandoned. Therefore, it is very important to realize the immense power and the incredible power that each one of us has in our hands to relieve your loved ones who suffer.

RELATIVES HEAVEN PRAYERS

KNOWING HOW TO PRAY

Most people who do not pray simply do not know how to begin. Others don’t pray because they think that the problems are too small to worry God. Still others feel that they have no right to pray because of their sins that disqualify them.

The people in your life need you to be a person of thoughtfully intense and habitual prayer. Pray for those whose lives have crossed yours.

PRAYING FOR OTHERS WHO ARE LIVING NOW

When you offer to pray for someone, simply tell them that you have been praying for them and their hearts will begin to change. “I never made more progress in my spiritual life, as when I began to devote myself to praying for others.”                              St. Theresa of Avila

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

RELATIVES HEAVEN PRAYERS

Prayer is of the Utmost Importance.

“Come near to me, I embrace you for I love you.

So few people pray these days.  Many go for days without saying a prayer, without lifting their hearts and minds to Me.  They are pre-occupied with the things of the world such as money and pleasure, but neglect the things of the spirit. They care little for their Creator or their Redeemer.

Yet, prayer is of the utmost importance for Christians. You cannot be a Christian if you do not pray. I’ve taught you this excellent prayer, contemplative prayer, which I favor so much. 

Most people can pray in this way if they apply themselves. I give the grace of contemplative prayer to all who ask with faith. Do you believe Me? 

I am calling you, My dear friend, to begin by spending time with Me.  I will lead you up the mountain for I want a close relationship with you. I will soften your heart and empty it of pride, resentment, and hurts. You must desire this relationship with me and submit yourself completely with Me. My grace is there for you if you wish to cooperate with it.

Come and live in my heart and remember I love you. I am ready to warm your cold heart. I am waiting for you today.                                            I bless you with My peace.”

The GREAT COMMISSION 2

The Great Commission

Great Commission

Your author still believes in the Catholic Church and is nourished by all the blessings of the Lord’s Supper. Unfortunately, his Catholic instruction was found wanting even though it represented 800 hours from Grade 4 to Grade 12. There was very little mention of the Bible and the Holy Spirit was never really explained.  He is making up for lost time with Bible study. In retrospect, this unforgivable  waste emanated from the original stance that only a priest is able to interpret the Scriptures. 

In fact, Jesus Himself said that He must go so that the Teacher (Holy Spirit) could come: so a Christian has the Holy Spirit to lead him.

Historically, the Bible was kept out of the common tongues, like Greek, and only written in Latin for hundreds of years until 1611 with the introduction of the King James Bible in English, which was superior to any Catholic bible at the time.

In retrospect, the early Catholic fathers could not expect to know about the power of the gifts of the Holy Spirit  unless they pursued the  Great Commission.  Remember when Jesus gave His disciples His marching orders and with it the tools required to fulfill the directive. Here is the basis of the Great Commission: 

“He (Jesus) said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation … And these signs will accompany those who believe: In My name they will drive out demons … they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”’ Mark 6:15,17,18

The author has become a Christian lay missionary over the last eight years and traveled to 15 countries.  He acknowledges the Presence of the Holy Spirit in his life with all His gifts. The author sometimes joins some of the evangelical missionaries who are involved with healing.

The gifts of the Holy Spirit has become the biggest surprise. One cannot go on mission and simply wish people good tidings. The Holy Spirit provides the tools that you need to be effective, specifically the gift of healing. The biggest surprise continues even upon returning home: the healing is remarkably immediate. 

The Church is a “body” with different members, all playing different roles, all essential for the overall well-being of the body. We cannot expect to see the presence of the healing of the Holy Spirit in any specific parish unless it makes a serious commitment to the Great Commission.

GREAT COMMISSION

What is required is that the parish is willing to move outward to follow the Great Commission: He (Jesus) said to them,Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation And these signs will accompany those who believe: In My name; they will drive out demons; … they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”                                                                Mark 16:15, 17, 18

John Paul II especially never tired of saying that holiness is for everyone, and that evangelization is for everyone. It isn’t just for special people – saints or missionaries – but that all of us are called to be saints and missionaries.

John Paul II makes clear that it is very important that this remarkable “rediscovery” of the charismatic dimension of the Church’s constitution be responded to with attention and gratitude.

CHARISMS

He continued to cry out: “Today, I would like to cry out to all of you gathered here in St. Peter’s Square and to all Christians: Open yourselves docilely to the gifts of the Spirit! Accept gratefully and obediently the charisms, which the Spirit never ceases to bestow on us!

GOD WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOUGreat Commission

    He has a Special Mission for You.

“I bless you.

I am your Father who created you in My own image and likeness. 

Remain closely united to Jesus. He has given you a mission to make our love known to all My children in the world. I confirm this mission and the gifts He has given you. Call every person to believe in Jesus, their Redeemer, and to follow Him.

Remain close to Jesus for He has a special mission for you.

The hearts of many people are getting cold and their faith is shallow. They believe they can live in this world without Me.

Many do not pray even on Sunday. Others work on the most holy day of the week and think nothing of it.

I will shake My people from their slumber and from their false worldly ideas and bring them back to Me where they belong.

Jesus will soon intervene in their lives and confront them. You will be an instrument in Jesus’ hands.  Follow Jesus closely and do what He asks of you.

My son and daughter, I love you. I want you to wake up before it is too late. The evil one would like to have you, but I will not allow it.

I am your God who created you and keeps you in being every moment of the day or night. I will bring you to your real home. I bless you.”

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU

Great Commission

Empowering you to Proclaim My Message

“I love you.  You are dear to Me. 

All power has been given to Me to make you My disciple and today I bind you to Me. (Say: I accept Lord Jesus)

I empower you, in turn, to proclaim My message to the world so that all may come to believe in Me. 

Turn away from the darkness of sin and unbelief and come into the light and live in My love. 

I am sending all of you who walk with Me, to your friends and to your neighbors to share your faith and your treasure with them because I desire the conversion of all the people. 

I want all of you to accept Me, Your Savior, into your lives.  Submit yourself to Me and I am going to lead you. 

Break away from a life of sin, open your heart to Me, and unite yourself with Me. 

Hurry, come to Me while there still is time. I bless you all.”

Christianity and Hinduism Differences 2

CHRISTIANITY AND HINDUISM

Hinduism Christianity

There are two basic kinds of religions in the world: Eastern and Western. The main differences between Hinduism and Christianity are typical of the differences between Eastern and Western religions in general. Here are some examples:

  1. Hinduism is pantheistic, not theistic. The Christian doctrine that God created the world out of nothing doesn’t even arise. In Hinduism, the world is part of God (pantheism).
  2. Hinduism believes that there is no absolute morality, no divine law, so no divine will discriminate good and evil. In Hinduism’s end is to purify the soul from desires so that it can attain mystical consciousness. While Christians have two innate senses: the religious sense to worship, and the moral sense of conscience.
  3. Eastern religions come from private mystical experiences; Western religions come from public revelations recorded in the Book and summarized in a creed. In the East, human experience validates the Scriptures.
  4. Eastern religions are esoteric, understandable only from within by the few who share the experience. In Hinduism there are many levels of truth: polytheism, sacred cows and reincarnation for the masses; monotheism (or monism) for the mystics, who declare the individual soul one with Brahman (God) and beyond reincarnation (“Brahman is the only reincarnator”). While western religions are exoteric, public, democratic, open to all.
  5. Individuality is illusion according to Eastern mysticism: we are not distinct from God or each other. Hinduism tells you you are your neighbors. There is no separate ego. All is one. Christianity tells you to love your neighbors.
  6. Since individuality is illusion, so is free will. If free will is illusion, so is sin. And if sin is illusion, so is hell. Perhaps the strongest attraction of Eastern religions is in their denial of sin, guilt and hell. In Hindu philosophy, there is no way you can absolve sin once it is done. This is the basic law of “Karma”. If you do good, so will you reap. If you do paap (or sin) you will see the repercussions in your next life. It is an easy way out to “accept Jesus and absolve yourself of sins”.Thus the two essential points of Christianity — sin and salvation — are both missing in the East. If there is no sin, no salvation is needed, only enlightenment. If I am part of God. I can never really be alienated from God by sin.
  7. Body, matter, history and time itself are not real, according to Hinduism. Mystical experience lifts the spirit out of time and the world. Eastern religions are not dramatic. In contrast, Christianity are dramatically news and events in time
  8. The ultimate Hindu ideal is not sanctity but mysticism. Mysticism is fundamentally a matter of intellect, intuition, consciousness.— not God’s will, loving God and neighbor.

HINDUISM CHRISTIANITY DIFFERENCES

When C.S. Lewis was converted from atheism, he observed that religions are like soups. Only Hinduism and Christianity are both “thin” (philosophical) and “thick” (sacramental and mysterious). But Hinduism is really two religions: “thick” for the masses, “thin” for the sages. Only Christianity is both.

THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Christian Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit is very close to the Brahma, Vishnu, Siva triumvirate. God as the Father is the source of creation, God as the Son is the creation who comes to earth for the benefit of others and God as the Holy Spirit is the divine energy of that and all creation.

Holy Spirit in Christianity is often equated with Shakti or kundalini in Hinduism. However, these terms represent different, even incompatible cosmologies.

Though Jesus is no longer physically present on earth, the Holy Spirit makes his life-giving presence available to all who seek Him. Perhaps the best way to understand who the Holy Spirit is comes from describing what he does. 

RELEASE OF THE SPIRIT 2

HINDUISM CLAIMS…

Hinduism claims that all other religions are yogas: ways, deeds, paths. Christianity is a form of bhakti yoga (yoga for emotional types and lovers). There is also jnana yoga (yoga for intellectuals), raja yoga (yoga for experimenters), karma yoga (yoga for workers, practical people) and hatha yoga (the physical preliminary to the other four). For Hindus, religions are human roads up the divine mountain to enlightenment — religion is relative to human need; there is no “one way” or single objective truth.

There is, however, a universal subjective truth about human nature: It has “four wants”: pleasure, power, altruism and enlightenment. Hinduism encourages us to try all four paths, confident that only the fourth brings fulfillment. If there is reincarnation and if there is no hell, Hindus can afford to be patient and to learn the long, hard way.

Hindus are hard to dialogue with for the opposite reason Muslims are: Muslims are very intolerant, Hindus are very tolerant. Nothing is false; everything is true in a way.

The summit of Hinduism is the mystical experience, called mukti, or moksha: “liberation” “thou art That (Brahman].” At the center of your being is not individual ego but Atman, universal self which is identical with Brahman, the All.

This sounds like the most absurd and blasphemous thing one could say: that I am God. But Brahman is not God the Father. Hinduism identifies with the transcendent human self with the immanent divine self.

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

You’ve died! Now what?

 What happens to your life after death? Hindus believe in  reincarnation. Their ethics is admirable but that is really not a religion that connects with one’s Creator. 

Reincarnation Hinduism

Come Again?

Reincarnation is either true or it is not true. It cannot be that for one person it is true and for another it is false. 

Hindus believe that there is no “evil,” apart from the failings of human conscience, and Satan doesn’t exist. Nowhere does one mention the possibility of repentance or forgiveness.

Believers in reincarnation are left only with tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow, a constant returning until they “complete their life plans.”  It tends toward moral laxity because no matter how bad someone is in this life, he gets another shot… and another… and another!  If people have many different lives to lead, then they can play around a lot more and be a lot more experimental about how they will conduct themselves morally.

The human physical brain has no memory of past lives. We don’t have anything to improve on in that first life because we haven’t had a life yet….have we?  I can learn from my mistakes only if I remember them, but there is no continuity of memory.

Is Reincarnation Biblical?

Jesus taught about Judgment and Heaven and Hell. The Bible clearly teaches that righteous people will NEVER suffer torment because they have a confident hope of IMMORTALITY, and that the wicked will suffer in a fire that NEVER goes out: “(He) will gather the wheat into His garner; but the chaff He will burn with fire unquenchable.”                                                                                         Luke 3:17

When “the single course of our earthly life” is completed, we shall not return to other earthly lives: “It is appointed for men to die once.” There is no “reincarnation” after death in the Bible:  “Just as it is appointed that human beings die once, and after this the judgment.”                                                                                               Hebrews 9:27 

Sikhism Reincarnation Biblical

It is also contradicted by our Lord Himself: “You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world.”                                                                                                                                            John 8:23:

“Be ready, for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect” Matthew 24:44 loses not only its effectiveness, but its essential meaning.

Is there a particular reason you think God needs to create us to preexist before our lives here on earth?  If every soul had once pre-existed with God, then Christ wasn’t anything special to have come from God. 

What divine  authority on reincarnation claims this? That could just be made up:”I don’t like the idea of Hell so I’m going to choose not to believe in it.” What they see is truly in the eyes of the beholder.

A Distinctive Human Soul

Human Soul Sikhism

It fails to make the essential distinction between men and animals. Human beings alone are created in the image and likeness of God; and therefore, possess rational and spiritual souls: a human person is a body/soul composite.

Consider a person alleged to have reincarnated; would the person have been himself or someone else, or partly himself and partly someone else? Of course, either alternative is illogical. A human person is a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL BEING with a spiritual soul and a material body.

It is the distinctive human soul that is the foundation of his unique dignity. It is the reason why we humans possess “certain unalienable rights” as our founding fathers rightly said in our Declaration of Independence. Reincarnation either reduces men to the level of animals, or raises animals to the level of humans with “rights” with spiritual souls. Does that make any sense? I believe it only to be wishful thinking.

Reincarnation only signals “the desire to escape the consequences of one’s life choices and modern stress.” The belief in reincarnation expresses the human “inexpressible longing to live forever.”

Why is this Extremely Dangerous?

How opposite is this to our Lord’s teaching in the form of his words to the “rich man”, when God said to him, “Fool! This night your soul is required of you… So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”                                                                       Luke 12:20-21

What if you descend into what you might call hell: a descent into each person’s customized human misery, ignorance, and darkness of not-knowing, which would seem like a miserable eternity.

hINDUISM Pascal's Wager

PASCAL’S BET

Pascal’s Wager appeals to the instinct for self-preservation, the desire to be happy and not unhappy. Suppose a winning sweepstakes ticket is worth a million dollars, and there are only two tickets left. You know that one of them is the winning ticket, while the other is worth nothing, and you are allowed to buy only one of the two tickets, at random. Would it be a good investment to spend a dollar on the good chance of winning a million?

It is therefore the height of folly not to “bet” on HEAVEN or possible HELL, even if you have no certainty, no proof, no guarantee that your bet will win. Reincarnation is a terrible bet. It gives you no chance of winning the prize: HEAVEN. Heaven is our true destiny, but the choice is ours.

We are like ships that need to get home. The ship of life is moving along the waters of time, and there comes a point of no return, when our fuel runs out, when it is too late. And there comes a time when there are no more tomorrows. Saying “maybe” and “perhaps tomorrow” cannot continue indefinitely because life does not continue indefinitely.

You are already committed [embarked]. We are not outside observers of life, but participants. You must wager. There is no choice.

Let us weigh up the gain and the loss involved in calling heads that HEAVEN exists. Let us assess the two cases: if you win, you win everything: if you lose, you lose nothing. Do not hesitate then: wager that HEAVEN does exist.

You should be much more afraid of being mistaken and then finding out that Christianity is true than of being mistaken in believing it to be true. If you believe too much, you neither win nor lose eternal happiness. But if you believe too little, you risk losing everything.

The Mouse’s Search for the Cat

There is a mountain analogy: the roads go up, not down; that man makes the roads, not God; that religion is man’s search for God, not God’s search for man.  C. S. Lewis says this sounds like “the mouse’s search for the cat”.

Hinduism Christianity

Christianity is not a system of man’s search for God but a story of God’s search for man.  True religion is not like a cloud of incense wafting up from special spirits into the nostrils of a waiting God, but like a Father’s hand thrust downward to rescue the fallen. 

Hinduism Christianity

THE FALSE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION

Here is a passage that comes from a BIBLE about RELIGIONS:

 “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and vain deceit, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2:8

Let’s analyze this more closely:

 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the elementary principles of this world, rather than following [the truth—the teachings of] Christ.                                                                  Colossians 2:8

So, one should not accept philosophy of mere speculation and imagination, but of the modest, laborious investigation of facts.

Vain Deceit is, that which is vain and empty, and has no solid foundation, and even deceitful and delusional.

Christianity is not a philosophy, but a relationship with God in Christ TODAYnot knowledge of abstract principles.

How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus. 

The Word of God: came to us from the Bible

In the beginning God made from nothing the heavens and the earth.”                                                                                                           Genesis 1:1

“He made from one blood all nations who live on the earth. He set the times and places where they should live. They were to look for God. Then they might feel after Him and find Him because He is not far from each one of us. It is in Him that we live and move and keep on living.”                                                                                    Acts 17:26-28

 “The heavens are telling of the greatness of God and the great open spaces above show the work of His hands.”             Psalm 19:1

”Lord, You have been the place of comfort for all people of all time. Before the mountains were born, before You gave birth to the earth and the world, forever and ever, You are God.”   Psalm 90:1, 2

“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’”                        Psalm 14:1

HINDU CULTURE AND FAMILY

There is a lot of good in Hinduism. Christians do not come with a spirit of criticism or superiority. We can appreciate in Hinduism: the teaching that children obey their parents, including many aspects of morality, teaching against alcohol intoxication, opposing fornication and other forms of immorality. 

Christians do not want to destroy the Hindu culture and Hindu way of life and replace it with Christian customs and Christian way of life. We realize that there may be a loss of one’s relationship with their family.

In the end, one’s conversion will benefit the whole family because of the gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance available. A prayer of deliverance (of evil spirits) will leave a Hindu member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple will bring about 80% healing, and the remaining healing will come about with a convert’s prayer of praise and thanksgiving. This healing comes through the Name of Jesus Christ and no other god or deity. This should be proof enough of the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

Hinduism doesn’t address a Personal GOD. Why?

  • Personal Relationship God Sikhism

    Hindus reject the uniqueness of Christ. This is the area of greatest disagreement between Hindus and Christians.

Here is an interesting Conversion Story:

 

Hindu Conversion Story

Kosh DahalDahal remembered: The power of the one true living God struck like a current of electricity, which came into me and began to run very fast. I was shocked. I kept saying, ‘Who is this? What’s happening to me? What’s inside of me running very fast?’”It was an experience he had never encountered in his 30 years of worshiping the Hindu pantheon of gods.

I began to say, ‘Wow. Jesus has the power,’” he said. “He really is the God who has mighty power. He woke me up. I cried. I realized that Jesus Christ is real.”

His wife Shobah saw a dramatic change in her husband and decided to follow Jesus too. She was eased to faith when she was miraculously healed in Jesus’ name of a uterine myoma, a benign growth that might have required a hysterectomy.

The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

MEANING OF LIFE 2

FINDING THE MEANING OF LIFE

This is what life is about. It is being sent on a trip by a loving God, who is waiting at home for our return and is eager to watch the slides we took and hear about the friends we made. When we travel with the eyes and ears of the God who sent us, we will see wonderful sights, hear wonderful sounds, meet wonderful people … and be happy to return home.                                              HENRI NOUWEN

Meaning of Life

Most people are still searching for meaning. The idea is that inside each of us is a “God-shaped hole”–a place inside of our hearts that only God can fill. If we try to put anything else in there, it won’t fit (meaning, it won’t fill the need we have inside of our heart/soul).

“There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God the Creator, made known through Jesus Christ.”                                         Blaise Pascal

You have made us for Yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in You.                                                  St. Augustine of Hippo

GOD'S PLAN MEANING LIFE

“If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink.”He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being shall flow rivers of living water.'” John 7:37,38  The word, “innermost being” is the Greek word for hole or empty place.

“If I find in myself a desire, which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”                                                                                           C.S. Lewis

GOD'S PLAN MEANING LIFE

Do you still felt your relationship with God growing more distant and unfamiliar with the passing of time?

Without our  faith, events can defeat us. Without faithful purpose, our lives lack direction, energy and hope.

More and more Americans seem to be feeling this way, according to a 2013 Harris Poll. The study found that 74 percent of Americans believe in God, which is down 8 percent from the 2009 poll. Even more telling is the number of Americans who believe with absolute certainty in God’s existence — only 54 percent.

When we rekindle our faith, we feel more gratitude, generosity and love towards ourselves and others.

MEANING LIFE GOD'S PLAN

TO REMIND YOU OF THE POWER OF FAITH 

Understanding the power of faith over fear and worry:

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”                                                                                                                                              Philippians 4:6-7

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.                                                                                      1 Peter 5:6-7

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”                                                                                                             John 14:27

“The righteous cry out and the Lord hears them; He delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers Him from them all.”                                                                                                                                 Psalm 34:17-19

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.”                                                                         Deuteronomy 31:6

“Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered for ever. They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord. Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes.”                                                                                                            Psalm 112:6-8

The Meaning in Your Life

“Come close to Me as I hang upon the cross for your salvation and the salvation of all the people of the world. Be My instrument to give this message to all. My suffering and pain are excruciating. The pain especially comes from the flogging and the wounds in My hands and feet. The crown of thorns causes great pain to My head and breathing is difficult in this position.  

MEANING OF LIFE

I am dying as a criminal although I have not committed any crime. I am suffering very much now and soon I will die for your sins. I have freely taken upon myself all the sins of the world to atone for them instead of you. It is out of love for you that I submit to this cruel death.

Spend some time in contemplating My sacrifice today offered to the Father for you.

See the malice of sin that it caused Me such pain. Let My blood flow over you to cleanse you and make you pure.

Answer My call which I address to each one of you to come and follow Me. My precious brother and sister, may your love blaze up to a great fire in you,

Your true place is with God for you are My brother and sister. 

Do not soil your dignity by sin or deface it by pride. 

Live as a partner with Me clothed with love and devotion.  You will be My masterpiece if I live in you and you live in Me.  Follow Me, your Savior.

I am the answer to your searching for meaning in your life. Your heart was made for Me. I am suffering and dying for you today.”

Hare Krishna God? 2

A HARE KRISHNA GOD?

Krishna is the so called God, or “Supreme Personality Universe” Followers go into the prayer room, bowing down to false idols, as there are many idols on a platform.  The view of God is basically pantheistic, meaning that they believe God is all and in all. For Hare Krishnas, God is everything and everything is God. 

Hare Krishna

They will always believe themselves above all other, on a special pedestal thinking they are the only ones destined for Godhead and everyone else are doomed.

The “monotheism” of Hare Krishna is a little muddled, however, as Sri Krishna has an “eternal consort” named Srimati Radharani; together, Krishna and Radharani comprise the “Divine Couple.”

The belief in reincarnation is explained as one’s works, good and bad, are measured and judged after death. If one’s deeds are good, he continues to be reincarnated into higher life forms; if his deeds are bad, he will become a lower life form. One can cease the cycles of rebirth and realize his oneness with Krishna.

The goal of the Hare Krishna is to reach “Krishna consciousness,” a kind of enlightenment, so that man is ultimately identical to God. This is an old lie dating back to the Garden of Eden: “You will be as God” (Genesis 3:5).

They believe that by spiritual austerity, by chanting, by rising early, and purifying yourself, that gradually you can evolve to a platform where you are completely free from material desire. “I don’t believe that anybody’s come to that platform,” observed one follower. In fact, you have feelings of guilt and remorse that you can’t always be on this platform, and psychologically you start to berate yourself.

They get you to the point where they don’t have any self-worth anymore. The only thing that is worth is serving Krishna (god): being a robot for God.

Cult Phenomenon

The cult phenomenon always come all wrapped in a nice looking ‘package’ and sweetened with one form of bait or another only to sap one’s essence as well as their pocketbook. The purpose of all these cults  is to defuse and distract. For those living in the temple, it is a true cult. (If you do not live in the Temple, you are considered a Householder and can live your life as you see fit, which is a vast difference.)

Here is a summary of the main criticism of Hare Krishna (HK) or ISKCON:

1/. Disengaged

 Hare Krishna or ISKCON followers become disengaged with social issues. This is unhealthy. One must engage in society and interact with all levels of society to help serve others who are suffering in our world.

2/. Isolation

Sooner or later they will encourage members/devotees to disassociate with ‘outsiders’. This includes members of your own family. Members are  completely wrapped up in HK, in every spare moment; all under the guise of ‘Good Association’. This is NOT healthy and this should ring alarm bells.

Here is a typical lesson: “Don’t try to love people individually; it’s like trying to water the leaves on a tree. If you want to water the leaves of a tree you water the root. You don’t water each individual leaf. Instead, love Krishna. He’s the root. When you love Krishna, automatically you will love everybody.” You see how it all logically fits together, and how this can be real deceptive?

3/. Sleep deprivation

Sleep and sufficient amounts of it is healthy! Sleep deprivation is a classic mind control technique.  They are allowed only 6 hours of sleep a night.  They kept you weak and overworked, then they created a semi-hypnotic state with the song and dancing and then the chanting.  The argument that one hour sleep taken at different times is equivalent to two hours is not scientifically proven at all.

4/. Insulated information

Organizers telling you Do not listen to any other information other than what we are telling you and only absorb our material.” This should ring alarm bells.

5/. Austerity & Charity

They say in their writing that 50% of devotee’s wages should go to them. Who can afford that level of tithing. Nothing is allowed to get funded to a high position from grass roots level; unless it has been first instigated by organizers.  In the end the Hare Krishna cult is actually a brainwashing, money making machine for a few who profit from creating a prophet. The hidden agenda is to pour in world resources and money for India and to prosper its “gurus”.

6/. Positioning

They tend to position themselves in inner city locations, where there are lots of young influential people and/or drug and alcoholism dependent people. These people need a way to escape materialistic society, or escape religion.

7/. Hooks

The Hare Krishnas come with a convenient solution to this materialistic mess with lots of smiles, yummy grub and with a bit of music and dancing thrown in: come and party with the HKs!

Not to mention their hypnotic mantra, which gives you a nice ‘loved up’ feeling to act as pain killer against modern day living all under the guise of transcendental spirituality?

8/. Fishing

They target students and addicts, anyone needing someone to lean on; they attract the most lost, confused, and needy people. Many of these people could not function in the real world and were attracted to this group as a way to hide from reality. They latch on to people who show a tad of enthusiasm. They tempt you with ‘free’ books to mind control you.

For sure they are de-stressed; but they are completely pacified. Just like in Huxley’s “Brave New World” scenario. Happy pacified servants of the system along with their finances!

They also attract people who like to feed off others and they are attracted to large groups of people to feed from.

Historically

In the late sixties during the hippie days, it was like a love community; the idea was just to go out on the street and just to sing and dance and chant and to distribute the literature, ask for donations, give out food, love-everyone kind of thing, and family type of atmosphere.

That changed very drastically. The community gets this absolute order from the guru, which is as good as having an order from God, to go out and sell the books in order to raise money. They worked on the principal that the end justifies the means, which opens up a whole host of questionable money making techniques.

Then, in 1977, Swami Bhaktivedanta dies and eleven of his most high-ranking disciples take over. They want all the people in their zones to be people who accept them as pure and perfect gurus. Opps! We now observe a lot of in-house bickering and jealousy.

Reincarnation

You’ve died! Now what?

What happens to your life after death?The belief in reincarnation is explained as one’s works: if one’s deeds are good, one continues to be reincarnated into higher life forms; if his deeds are bad, one will become a lower life form. One can cease the cycles of rebirth and realize his oneness with Krishna, the godhead.

The goal of the Hare Krishna is to reach “Krishna consciousness,” a kind of enlightenment, so that man is ultimately identical to God.

HARE KRISHNA REINCARNATION

Come Again?

Reincarnation is either true or it is not true. It cannot be that for one person it is true and for another it is false. 

Hindus believe that there is no “evil,” apart from the failings of human conscience, and Satan doesn’t exist. Nowhere does one mention the possibility of repentance or forgiveness.

Believers in reincarnation are left only with tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow, a constant returning until they “complete their life plans.”  It tends toward moral laxity because no matter how bad someone is in this life, he gets another shot… and another… and another!  If people have many different lives to lead, then they can play around a lot more and be a lot more experimental about how they will conduct themselves morally.

The human physical brain has no memory of past lives. We don’t have anything to improve on in that first life because we haven’t had a life yet….have we?  I can learn from my mistakes only if I remember them, but there is no continuity of memory.

Is Reincarnation Biblical?

Jesus taught about Judgment and Heaven and Hell. The Bible clearly teaches that righteous people will NEVER suffer torment because they have a confident hope of IMMORTALITY, and that the wicked will suffer in a fire that NEVER goes out: “(He) will gather the wheat into His garner; but the chaff He will burn with fire unquenchable.”                                                                                         Luke 3:17

When “the single course of our earthly life” is completed, we shall not return to other earthly lives: “It is appointed for men to die once.” There is no “reincarnation” after death in the Bible:  “Just as it is appointed that human beings die once, and after this the judgment.”                                                                                               Hebrews 9:27 

Sikhism Reincarnation Biblical

It is also contradicted by our Lord Himself: “You are from below, I am from above; you are of this world, I am not of this world.”                                                                                                                                            John 8:23

“Be ready, for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect” Matthew 24:44 loses not only its effectiveness, but its essential meaning.

Is there a particular reason you think God needs to create us to preexist before our lives here on earth?  If every soul had once pre-existed with God, then Christ wasn’t anything special to have come from God. 

What divine  authority on reincarnation claims this? That could just be made up:”I don’t like the idea of Hell so I’m going to choose not to believe in it.” What they see is truly in the eyes of the beholder.

A Distinctive Human Soul

Human Soul Sikhism

It fails to make the essential distinction between men and animals. Human beings alone are created in the image and likeness of God; and therefore, possess rational and spiritual souls: a human person is a body/soul composite.

Consider a person alleged to have reincarnated; would the person have been himself or someone else, or partly himself and partly someone else? Of course, either alternative is illogical. A human person is a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL BEING with a spiritual soul and a material body.

It is the distinctive human soul that is the foundation of his unique dignity. It is the reason why we humans possess “certain unalienable rights” as our founding fathers rightly said in our Declaration of Independence. Reincarnation either reduces men to the level of animals, or raises animals to the level of humans with “rights” with spiritual souls. Does that make any sense? I believe it only to be wishful thinking.

Reincarnation only signals “the desire to escape the consequences of one’s life choices and modern stress.” The belief in reincarnation expresses the human “inexpressible longing to live forever.”

Why is this Extremely Dangerous?

How opposite is this to our Lord’s teaching in the form of his words to the “rich man”, when God said to him, “Fool! This night your soul is required of you… So is he who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”                                                                       Luke 12:20-21

What if you descend into what you might call hell: a descent into each person’s customized human misery, ignorance, and darkness of not-knowing, which would seem like a miserable eternity.

PASCAL’S WAGER

Hare Krishna Pascal's Wager

Pascal’s Wager appeals to the instinct for self-preservation, the desire to be happy and not unhappy. Suppose a winning sweepstakes ticket is worth a million dollars, and there are only two tickets left. You know that one of them is the winning ticket, while the other is worth nothing, and you are allowed to buy only one of the two tickets, at random. Would it be a good investment to spend a dollar on the good chance of winning a million?

It is therefore the height of folly not to “bet” on HEAVEN or possible HELL, even if you have no certainty, no proof, no guarantee that your bet will win. Reincarnation is a terrible bet. It gives you no chance of winning the prize: HEAVEN. Heaven is our true destiny, but the choice is ours.

We are like ships that need to get home. The ship of life is moving along the waters of time, and there comes a point of no return, when our fuel runs out, when it is too late. And there comes a time when there are no more tomorrows. Saying “maybe” and “perhaps tomorrow” cannot continue indefinitely because life does not continue indefinitely.

You are already committed [embarked]. We are not outside observers of life, but participants. You must wager. There is no choice.

Let us weigh up the gain and the loss involved in calling heads that HEAVEN exists. Let us assess the two cases: if you win, you win everything: if you lose, you lose nothing. Do not hesitate then: wager that HEAVEN does exist.

You should be much more afraid of being mistaken and then finding out that Christianity is true than of being mistaken in believing it to be true. If you believe too much, you neither win nor lose eternal happiness. But if you believe too little, you risk losing everything.

Yahweh 

Is this an old lie dating back to the Garden of Eden: “You will be as God”? Genesis 3:5

They are taught to believe that the Bible is the Word of God: their guru taught them “Yes, Bible is Word of God, Bhagavad Gita is also Word of God.” The Bible says we should not bow down to idols. Yahweh alone is the God that created the heavens, and all the gods of the nations are idols. “For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.” Psalm 96:5

The Second Commandment says, “Thou shalt not create any graven images or bow down and worship them.” Exodus 20:3-5.  But how can that be, since the God of the Bible disassociates himself from any graven image, and they worship God in a graven image? It’s completely incompatible.

Since only pure devotees are saved, nobody has been saved except for them. They’re the only pure devotees! Is that the mercy of God that only five people in the line of gurus out of billions get saved? Does that sound logical?”

Deprogramming

Deprogramming is successful once followers have admitted they have been deceived by their leaders and the group, which, with sufficient coercion, can invariably be accomplished. Even after a person has thus “broken,” the deprogrammers explain, he or she will “float.” That is, any contact with other members of the cult may trigger a return to the group. Such floating, they warn their clients, can continue for years.

It’s hard to explain the depth of seriousness that is to someone who believes HK. With the grace of God and prayers all is possible.

The Mouse’s Search for the Cat

The unproved assumption of this very common mountain analogy is that the roads go up, not down; that man makes the roads, not God; that religion is man’s search for God, not God’s search for man.  C. S. Lewis says this sounds like “the mouse’s search for the cat”.

Hare Krishna

Christianity is not a system of man’s search for God but a story of God’s search for man.  True religion is not like a cloud of incense wafting up from special spirits into the nostrils of a waiting God, but like a Father’s hand thrust downward to rescue the fallen. 

Hare Krishna

The Word of God: came to us from the Bible

In the beginning God made from nothing the heavens and the earth.”                                                                                                           Genesis 1:1

“He made from one blood all nations who live on the earth. He set the times and places where they should live. They were to look for God. Then they might feel after Him and find Him because He is not far from each one of us. It is in Him that we live and move and keep on living.”                                                                                    Acts 17:26-28

 “The heavens are telling of the greatness of God and the great open spaces above show the work of His hands.”             Psalm 19:1

”Lord, You have been the place of comfort for all people of all time. Before the mountains were born, before You gave birth to the earth and the world, forever and ever, You are God.” Psalm 90:1, 2

“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’”                   Psalm 14:1

Life after Death

HARE KRISHNA CULTURE AND FAMILY

 In the end, one’s conversion will benefit the whole family because of the gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance available. A prayer of deliverance (of evil spirits) will leave a Hare Krishna member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple will bring about 80% healing, and the remaining healing will come about with a convert’s prayer of praise and thanksgiving. This healing comes through the Name of Jesus Christ and no other god or deity. This should be proof enough of the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

WELCOME TO GOD!

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

GOD’S HEALING ASSURED 2

 HEALING?

 Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing.  They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.  Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.Chinese Religion God

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

PROOF OF HEAVEN 2

Is the BIBLE true? 2

THE FALSE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION

Here is a passage that comes from a BIBLE ABOUT RELIGION:

 “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and vain deceit, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.” Colossians 2:8

Let’s analyze this more closely:

 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception [pseudo-intellectual babble], according to the tradition [and musings] of mere men, following the elementary principles of this world, rather than following [the truth—the teachings of] Christ.                                                                  Colossians 2:8

So, one should not accept philosophy of mere speculation and imagination, but of the modest, laborious investigation of facts.

Vain Deceit is, that which is vain and empty, and has no solid foundation, and even deceitful and delusional.

Christianity is not a philosophy, but a relationship with God in Christ TODAYnot knowledge of abstract principles.

How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus.

TO ENTER GATE OF HEAVEN 2

 WHAT CAN YOU SAY TO ENTER HEAVEN?

One of the greatest gifts we can offer our family and friends is helping them to die well. We have to sit quietly with them and say: “Do not be afraid … I love you, God loves you … it’s time for you to go in peace. … I won’t cling to you any longer … I set you free to go home … go gently, go with my love.” It is the greatest gift that you can give.

DEATH BETTER

When Jesus died he said: “Father, into your hands I commit My Spirit”. Luke 23:46 It is good to repeat these words often with our dying friends. 

WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP?

“The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want … and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD for years to come.”                          Psalms 23:1, 6

 Death frees us from the boundaries of chronology and brings us into God’s “time,” which is timeless. There is no “past,” “present,” or “future.” 

ONE OF THE GREATEST POEMS EVER WRITTEN

‘Holy Sonnet 10: Death, Be Not Proud‘ by John Donne (1572-1631)

Death, be not proud, though some have called you
Mighty and dreadful; for you art not so;
For those whom you think, you do overthrow
Die not, poor Death, nor yet can you kill me.
From rest and sleep, which but your pictures be,
Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow,
And soon our best men with you do go,
Rest of their bones, and soul’s delivery.
You art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men,
And do with poison, war, and sickness dwell,
And poppy or charms can make us sleep as well
And better than your stroke; why swell you then?
One short sleep past, we wake eternally
And death shall be no more; Death, you shalt die.

Death has always been a subject that’s instilled people with terror and despair, yet this poem provides us with hope.

When he says “From rest and sleep, which but your pictures be, / Much pleasure,” he compares death to being asleep, making it sound a lot less terrifying. Similarly, when he saysOne short sleep past, we wake eternally / And death shall be no more, he explains that if one truly believes in the eternal life of the soul, then death is nothing but a blessing.  

Death is so ever-present in our lives, and the fear of death is undoubtedly a natural instinct. 

HOW DO IT GET INTO HEAVEN?

GATE TO HEAVENGATE TO HEAVEN

Let me ask you a question: when you die, where will your soul go? Heaven? Hell? Nowhere? Not sure?

I know where my soul will go when I die. Wouldn’t you like to be absolutely 100% sure where yours will go? If you could get into the gate to heaven when you die, wouldn’t you do whatever it takes to be sure that that is where your soul is going?

Do you know what signs Jesus will be looking for to see if He recognizes you as one of His own?

  1. Have you sinned? Don’t think so? Ever told a lie, even a little white lie? Ever stolen something, even just a penny? Have you ever known it was right to do something, and then not done it?

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23.  You may be a good person, but even sinning just once (which we all have) we still fall short of the Glory of God, because God is without sin.

GATE TO HEAVEN

    2. We still have hope: Now, we know that God isn’t going to let sin into heaven.  But we just established that every single person on earth has sinned, this isn’t looking so good for you and me to get into heaven is it? But luckily for us, there’s good news.

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”                                                     Romans 6:23

GATE TO HEAVEN

     3. You might be saying to yourself, “I don’t know how to accept Jesus as my savior or how to confess my sins.”

Have no fear. If you are ready today to accept Jesus Christ as your savior, then pray with me by following the prayer below:

“Jesus, I know that I’m a sinner and that I need Your help to save my soul. I know that you are the Son of God, and I want to thank you for dying on the cross for me so that I don’t have to pay for my sins, and so that I can have eternal life through you. Please come into my heart Lord and save me. Please forgive me for my sins and help me to repent and be a better person for You. I love You, Lord, and thank You for Your sacrifice. In Your name Lord, amen.”

    4.  There is no guilt and no reason to feel guilty. The Bible says we are sinners by nature. God does not expect us to feel guilty. What he does want us to feel is love for Him. He wants us to be with us in heaven, which is why we must accept his Son.

    5.  Now why would God feel it is necessary to be saved? What is there to be saved from? Hell. Where is the opposite of hell after you die? Heaven. You are being saved from Hell.

    6.  After we are saved, there is a change that takes place within us… we should want to do things to please God, not disappoint Him. God does not expect you to lead a perfect life… he doesn’t. But when you are saved, there is a spiritual “rebirth”.

GATE TO HEAVEN

 What are you doing today to prepare for that crucial moment when time has run out?

But we come from God and belong to God…”                            1 John 4:4

‘”In my Father’s house are many mansions.”                           John 14:2-3 

When you stand at the gate of heaven and God says, “Why should I let you in?” What answer will you give?

“I lived a good life.” “I gave money to good causes.”    “We’re happy for you, but you weren’t good enough.”

You will know the answer before you get there and you can know for sure that heaven’s gate will open for you. How?

Very simple. 

“If you say with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved from the punishment of sin.”                                                                    Romans 10:9

Gate to Heaven

The fact that there’s a highway to hell and only a stairway to heaven says a lot about anticipated traffic numbers.  

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

Gate to Heaven

The Road to Heaven

“I love you.

I’m showing you two roads that disappear far in the west where the sun sets.Gate to Heaven

One is a pleasure to travel on. It is straight, smooth and wide.  Many are traveling that road but it only leads to death and emptiness.  None of My friends travel along that road.

Then there is another road with sharp turns, water and mud in places and it is narrow here and there. At the end of this road one finds life, the fullness of life. This is the road I follow and I lead all My friends along it.

The first road is the way of the world filled with pleasure, the following of one’s own will and the false notion that with money one can buy everything one needs. Their companion is the evil one. At the end of such a life there is only death and despair because they will not attain to eternal life. 

However, those traveling on the other road will have sufferings and trials. They will make an effort to follow God’s will instead of their own.

I will lead them and bring them to life and eternal happiness forever in heaven. My dear friend, do not be afraid of trials and suffering but face them with Me at your side.

May your heart be attuned to Mine. Come and walk with Me in deep friendship every day of your life. I bless you all.”

The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:

Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.
