House of Card become against of God

House of God has been my favorite show on Netflix because it portrays the actual picture of Government. I have watched and enjoyed Season 1 and Season 2 and whole year i had been waiting anxiously for third season. I watched fifth episode today and it has deeply offended my feelings when Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) spits on the statue of Jesus Christ in a Cathedral. He also urinate on his fathers tombstone in first episode where clearly written, Service of God. I understand the freedom of speech but it comes with the responsibility to respect others and other views. I don’t know what is motto of the show or what they are promoting, but i do know America is Christian Country founded by Christian people on christian principles.

I have appeal to media please show respect toward God or at least do not hurt other people’s religious views by showing blasphemous action on media. People like me who born in third world country and face persecution because of religion have deep respect of God of Bible. Please respect.

7 Benefits of Salvation

7 Benefits of Salvation.

There are many blessings of Salvation but I have picked only seven in this article.

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. – 1 Corinthians 1:18 NKJV

There are benefits of the Salvation through Jesus Christ for believers who have faith in the work of Cross at Calvary. It is the divine plan of God who sent His only begotten Son to restore the relationship with mankind. Because He loves the world. His universal love is sustaining the world every day. Here are some of benefits of the work of Salvation.

  1. Deliverance from Wrath of God,

…. whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come. -1 Thessalonians 1:10

God is love and He loved the world but we must understand the He is righteous Judge also and Justice is the part of His nature. There is no bit of doubt that He loved Adam and Eve very much that he killed the animal in Garden and gave them to cover their nakedness. But Adamic fall caused the great anger of God. Their sin was against almighty God which disturbed the whole creation and death entered into world. No doubt God knew it already through his foreknowledge characteristic but He gave man the freedom of Choice.

Four thousand years before Christ, God was covering His wrath with the sacrifices has been mentioned in the Leviticus. No one was able bear it until Jesus Christ came voluntarily to meet the wrath of God on Cross. Almost 2000 years ago Jesus died on Cross and rescued whole mankind but there is condition whoever believe shall have everlasting life. John 3:16

  1. Reconciliation with God.

Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.-2 Corinthians 5:18, 1Colossians 1:20

God has reconciled his broken relationship with mankind through His Son. Now we have direct access to heaven through Jesus. We have great advocate on heaven interceding for us to Father. God is spirit and we can communicate with Him only through Spirit. This is why when God created Adam and He breathed into nostrils on Adam and Adam was carrying God’s breath (Sprit) inside him which made him alive. But once had made sin, he died and Spiritual connection and communication was broken but Jesus stood in the gap and restored this communication. And God has poured His Spirit again on the church in Acts 2. Now we can talk with father any time. And He has also given us gifts of Spirit (1 Corinthians 12 ) which activates when we born again.

  1. Justification.

Galations 3:6-15, Mathew 19:17

God has made us Justified when believe in Jesus and his work of Salvation on Cross. Justification means a sinner accounted as righteous. We were sinners but once we have faith in Him, we are justified and have been considered as Righteous before God. Now when God looks on us He sees righteousness of Jesus on Us.

 

  1. Redemption from Generational Curses

We are redeemed of God from all the generational curses and sicknesses which transformed through blood, words, objects and physical contact. These are mentioned in Deuteronomy 28. It has list of blessings and Curses. But Christ has redeemed us from all the curses, sicknesses, poverty, curse of law and many more mentioned in scriptures. If we have any one of these in our family we have to break with the blood of Jesus Christ. 

  1. Mercy of God

We have mercy of God on us. And we should seek Mercy of God. There is difference between Mercy and Grace of God. Mercy is not getting what we deserve which is punishment of our transgressions and Grace is which we do not deserve which is unmerited favor of God. God withheld punishment and forgive us. We humans have sinful flesh and our nature incline toward sin. But Mercy and Grace of God save us for great day when we will go to heaven and have fellowship with our Master.

  1. Peace with God

Romans 5:1-11, Romans 2:14-18

There is difference between with peace of God and peace with God. We can understand both once we are born again. Peace with God is that once we are saved and been justified we have peace with God.

Peace of God and which believers have with them. It guards our mind and hearts. Because Jesus is the prince of peace. 

  1. Sonship

Romans 8:15,

We have received the spirit of Adoption whereby we cry, Abba, Father. We are adopted by God as His Children and we have right that can call him Father. Jesus taught his disciples to call him as Father in Prayers. Becoming the sons of almighty God means He has unconditional love for us. And He loved us so He gave his only begotten son so we can forever unending life with him.

Conclusion,

The Work of Salvation has brought a great reform in the Universe. It brought a great hope to dying world and to its habitants when God instituted Church in Acts 2. We must understand our role in the Church and work for its expansion.

Sound of mourn

Image

My heart is deeply saddened today when I saw the news post about my people in Pakistan. About 600-700 people were worshiping the Lord in Sunday service on September 22, 2013 in a church in northwest Pakistan. It was one of the most inhuman and brutal attacks that has ever happened to Christians in Pakistan. More than 78 were killed and many children, women and men were injured.

What is it???

It might be a hot story for some journalist, another opportunity for fundraisers, a point to talk for politicians or just a story of persecution in a third world country….That’s it? You are free… you may or may not ignore it, nobody will question you about it.

But I want to tell you that this is not just another other incident… this is a conspiracy, You might say that I am in state of emotional brokenness or I am in a coma…But I want to tell you that this is not just a story. This is another stage of the world, a world where persecution has been moved to a level that folks are injured and some people are dead. Meanwhile the world may just say, we condemn it, it is bad, we are praying. It is not the time just to pray but to stand for the right. For me to ask you to stand up against this is difficult because your family has not persecuted yet.

Terrorists are killing Christian everywhere in World, I want you to understand that there is a rise in persecution among the Christians around the world. Not only in Pakistan but in Syria, Iran, and Egypt and in every Islamic country Christians are being killed… and it has been increasing day by day. It has reached an alarming situation. It reminds me of the early Church persecution and I think this is worse because I did not see that one I just believed but I see this one where husbands are beheaded and their wives are being asked “Jesus did not came to help him”.  What else do you need to see?

God is in Control, I heard this statement on every incident of persecution. I am not against it and I believe, God is in Control but He gave wisdom too. What would you do if a terrorist breaks the door of your home and try to rape your daughter, what would you say, you would not say take my daughter and do want you want to do it, My God is in control. Of course you will defend your family until you are alive. Then why should we allow Islamic extremists to continue kill God’s children…our brothers and sister?

You may ask then what should we do.

I want you to scream loudly and as much as you can. I want you to raise your voice. I want you to come out from your comfort zones and demand justice for these innocent people. I want you to raise your voice. This brutality, insanity and cruelty has got to stop. Do what you can, write letter to your congressmen, to the White House, call the President if you know how. Do what you can, but this has got to stop. I wish we had the Crusaders again today.

America has helped in every bad incident of the world. They helped flood victims in the world, they helped the earthquakes in the world, they reformed Iraq, they reformed Afghanistan even every incident in the world except for the persecution of the Christians. Why not help those persecuted Christians?

I want to send message to higher authorities of Pakistan through this media, “If you continue to fail to protect Christians in Pakistan, let them go out from your country or give them separate land to live freely”

This is my request for you to please pray hard, mourn and stand to protect the Christian in the world.

Write you with my tears,

Khuram Bashir

5 Secrets of Success

ImageGod has created man with successful supernatural plan for his life. And He also gave him Wisdom, Authority and the freedom of Choice. Man is not robot, they can use their freedom of choice. They can choose to have their own plan for their life or they can say yes to God’s plan.  Whatever choices they make,  results are connected with it. That’s why, we see often failures, losses  and separations among Christians.  It is not the God’s plan for man to be failed in life, HE wants man to see prosper.

Today, We will discuss about some reasons why men failed in their lives, businesses and ministries.  The scripture from the Bible which speak loud is from Haggai 1.

HAGGAI: 1-8  NKJV

In the second year of King Darius, in the sixth month, on the first day of the month, the word of the Lord came by Haggai the prophet to Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest, saying, “Thus speaks the Lord of hosts, saying: ‘This people says, “The time has not come, the time that the Lord’s house should be built.”’”

Then the word of the Lord came by Haggai the prophet, saying, “Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, and this temple to lie in ruins?” Now therefore, thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider your ways!

“You have sown much, and bring in little;
You eat, but do not have enough;
You drink, but you are not filled with drink;
You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm;
And he who earns wages,
Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.”

Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider your ways! Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,” says the Lord. 

Important Note;

Very first thing, we need to realize and understand that, it is God’s message spoken by Haggai. These are the Words of God but tongue is used of Haggai to speak to the nations to remind them their call and purpose of life. And it is kept in the Bible for a reason that me and you can understand the plan of God our lives. Circumstances, situations and atmospheres may change but God’s plan never changes.

Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away- Mathew 24:35 NKJV

God’s word still have the same power and life which was in the beginning. We need to dig into the word and grab our portion of Blessings and life.

Secrets of Success

There are some important basic principles of success which we need to understand fully. Some of them are described below.

1. Get back to work.

Israelites were given a project from God to rebuild the house of God. They started to build and laid foundation but they stopped building temple of God due to the opposition of Samaritans and they start making excuses that The time is not right. And the project was laid for 16 years. Then God rebuked through Haggai that it is right time for you to build your own houses but not for my house?

“Is it time for you yourselves to dwell in your paneled houses, and this temple to lie in ruins?”  Haggai 1:4

Haggai rebuked the people and we can see anger in these words. He used the word “Paneled Houses”. I checked the free dictionary and got the definition as below

a house of prostitution in which the rooms have secret entrances to facilitate theft from customers by accomplices of the inmates.”- thefreedictionary.com

God said their houses the house of prostitutes who followed the world not God. Not only Israelites stopped the work of God by making lame excuses, Now a days, Many Ministers, Pastor and Leaders also have stopped uncompleted projected because of oppositions and failure. But I would advice to all my friends, Get back to work now. Fasten your seat belts and get ready for work. Trust in Lord and control the position,  Success is yours.

2. Consider your ways

Second important thing in the ministry, business or personal life is to consider the ways. Prophet Haggai quoted this phrase two times, first in verse 4 and other in verse 7 and both time he mentioned, thus says the Lord of Hosts.

He wants to make sure that this is from the Lord that you all need to consider your ways. Because there are some ways which look right to man but in the depth, there is death. Proverbs 14:12

This is the major mistake which we make to choose the right choice for our success. We always look circumstances with our eyes, think with our minds, and follow our heart to pursue success but we fail because these all are organs of body which are not perfect.

In Ruth 1, Elimelech chose to leave Bethlehem and moved to Moab because of famine. He made this choice because of his flesh. The word Bethlehem means ” the house of bread” and Moab was the cursed city. God has cursed this city for ten generations because of the sin of Lot’s daughters. In other words, Elimelech left the city of bread and moved to cursed city. In the result of his choice, not only he died his both sons Mahlon and Chilion died.

We need to understand fully that our one wrong choice can destroy our whole life. Always make Choices with the help of our high priest, Jesus Christ, who is life, truth and way. John 14:6

3.  Focus your Priorities

In the verse 6, there are five basic human needs which God had stopped for the people who rejected their call for Work of God.

    I.        Fruitless life, “You have sown much, and bring in little”

This means there is not any profit or fruit in your businesses and ministries because you have rejected the God’s call and became selfish by doing your own things. And God has Stopped the fruit from their lives. As Jesus cursed the fig tree because it refused to bear fruit. Mathew 21:18-22

 II.        Unsatisfied life,  You eat, but do not have enough; You drink, but you are not filled with drink; You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm;

Next three things belongs to our physical needs, eating , drinking and clothing.

we need to understand this revelation that God is our providers. We cannot meet our needs by our self ever unless we depend on God.

Jesus Christ said clearly to his disciples in Matthew 6:31 NKJV

 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’

But when we stop working with God, God stop our basic needs. It is the Biblical rule” No work no food“.

“For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.” 2 Thessalonians 3:10 NKJV

 III.        No Saving,  And he who earns wages, Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.

when Israelites refused to work with God, God stop blessing them. Bags with holes means not knowing when money come and where it go. Many people under the sun living such life, they do not understand fully where money go. They need to understand that life without Christ is nothing.

Jesus Christ said clearly in John 15:5 NKJV

I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

 4.  Another chance

Our God is so loving and gracious God, He always love us, and give us other chances to stand again and fulfill his call for work. In Verse 8, He gave another chance of re-establishment.

Go up to the mountains and bring wood and build the temple, that I may take pleasure in it and be glorified,” says the Lord. 

This is open call for everyone to evangelize the world. It is asking everyone to Go and bring nations to Christ and build a church of new testament.

The notable point in verse 8 is, Go up to the mountains.  There are always certain mountains in the believer’s life and we need not to worry about these mountains. We need to speak with the faith and authority. Not any single mountain would be able to stand against us.

So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. Mathew 21:21 NKJV.

5. All Glory is for Lord

Verse 8 is very clear about it that Lord says that i may take pleasure in it and be glorified.

Everything is from God and for God so we need to glorify him not ourselves by our words. when we start glorifying ourselves our downfall starts from that point of time, because “I” is the center of SIN.

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. James 4:10 NKJV

Conclusion,

Our God is Creator and sustainer of the Universe. Everything is under his control. Though HE has given free will but He has given wisdom also. If we will submit our will, mind and lives to God and we will be faithful to our call. He will bless us and we will live satisfied, successful healthy life. This depends on our choice, Make Choice and say yes to God, you will be experience supernatural life.

 

 

Dusty Flesh with Heavenly Spirit

 

God made flesh of Adam with dust of the earth and breathed  heavenly spirit in him and gave everything under the heaven and above the earth under his authority which he lost by disobedience and Christ gave it again to the believers to demonstrate the Glory of God. Flesh is made with the dust that is why it incline toward the world and worldly desires. And most of times, Flesh causes the distraction from the way of God and it force us to commit sin. But Spirit belongs to God that is why it feels peace and joyful in the presence of God.

Proverbs 3:7-8

New King James Version (NKJV)

Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
It will be health to your flesh,
And strength to your bones.

In this passage, the wisest man on the planet of earth, Solomon the Son of King David, is advising in proverbs not to be wise in our own eyes. Because he understood the revelation of victory and prosperity by totally depending on God not on our own abilities and capabilities. The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord.. Proverbs 21:31 ESV

Solomon has mentioned one organ of human flesh in the above passage, eyes, which always give picture to mind and man struggle to peruse that beautiful picture and commit sins. In the Garden of Eden, Eve saw the forbidden fruit and ate it because it was pleasant to eyes.

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Genesis 3:6 NKJV

Same like, King David committed sin because of eyes, He saw bathing woman and committed adultery.

Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king’s house. And from the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to behold. 2 Samuel 11:2

Do not be wise in your own eyes…

This verse is the open message for all those who think they are more smarter than God. They think, act, walk and talk about their salves only. They dig hole and plan to fell in it.

Ruth 1, Elimelech of Bethlehem moved to Moab because of famine and not only himself died his both sons Mahlon and Kilion died also. you may never know one action without God may cause your whole life destroyed.

He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. John 15:5 NKJV

There is a way that seems right to a man,
But its end is the way of death. Proverbs 14:12 NKJV

 

Second important thing in the believers life which the verse describes, fear the Lord. Fear the Lord means, accepting his will and loving him by heart not only by talk. We should demonstrate his love through our practical life also.

If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can[a] he love God whom he has not seen?

Three actions

  1. Do not be wise in your own eyes
  2. Fear the Lord
  3. depart from the evil

will cause healing in your flesh and strength in your bones.

Conclusion;

If we will be flesh oriented and we will live life to meet the desire of the flesh then we cannot please God and we cannot me satisfied on earth and if we will be spirit oriented and we will submit our lives to God and let God to take care our all needs  then we will experience the supernatural and miraculous life.
