“If you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord & believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9). Confession is where we take the word of God and speak it aloud to our self to begin to minister to our very own soul. Our soul is our mind, will, intellect and emotions. The soul is one of the places we have to get rid of our unbelief and to change how we think and feel about our circumstances. We need to take the Word of God that pertains to our needs and say them aloud to ourselves daily.
Jesus said “I tell you, on the day of judgment you will have to give an account for every careless word you utter” (Matthew 12:36). Our words have power to affect our present situations and they also determine our future. We are living today based on the words which we have spoken in the past. Each word that we speak has either creative or destructive power. Relationships can be destroyed by words or lack of words, things that are said or things that should be said that are not said, hence we need to replace our negative words, with the Word of God. Jesus said “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12:34). So our words determine the state of our heart.
One who says, there is no God is a fool. One who does not believe in God, does not receive God’s help. Psalm 14 and verse one says “Fools say in their hearts, There is no God”. Such people’s life is corrupt and they do abominable deeds. Such people cannot do good” (Psalm 14:1). Those who do not believe in God, do not receive any help from God, for the word of God tells “from where will my help come? My help comes from the Lord” (Psalm 121:1-2). So, love God wholeheartedly and believe in him and you will live. “Draw near to God, and God will draw near to you.” (James: 4-8). The recent scientific research has found out that, God particle (deva kana) is the cause of creation of the whole universe. This research will soon prove the wise men of this world, real fools and prove God’s word to be true. Therefore not through the wisdom of this world, but through the power of the word of God, and by believing in it, we will see the Glory of God. Jesus told Martha “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God” (John 11:40). Hence, brothers and sisters, believe in God, read and reflect his life giving word, and surely you will be blessed. Remember, what Jesus told Thomas “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe” (John 20:29)
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.” – John 3:16
My dear brothers and sisters, God’s love is immeasurable. To know it, you need to experience it. “For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but God’s steadfast love shall not depart from you.” – Isaiah 54:10.
One day man asked God, “What is the difference between your love and my love?”. God smiled and replied, “A fish in water is my love and a fish in a plate is your love”. This is true, my friends. God loves us unconditionally and his love is true. But, we human beings love others for our own advantage. We usually love only those who love us back. But God says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.” – Jeremiah 31:3. People will love you and then leave you. But “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases.” – Lamentations 3:22. “O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his steadfast love endures forever!” – Psalm 118:1.
“I forgive you…”. This is a very difficult task to do, my dear brothers and sisters, but surely not impossible. Let me share with you a wonderful experience that I had. After completing my graduation and when I was working, I had attended many prayer meetings. I belonged to a prayer group and we used to have our team prayer once a week. We were about five or six of us. One day, during our prayer, one of the team members just called me aside and told me, that I need to forgive someone. I started to recall as to who I need to forgive. The next day I took a day off from work and sat before the Blessed Sacrament. The Lord revealed to me the person and I forgave him from my heart, removing the hatred from within me and accepting him as a child of God. And that day I felt so light and I truly felt the grace of God filling me.

Spirit of wisdom have control over me,
Keep me from distractions while I do God's will,
When trials come I will stand still,
For you are my refuge in the times of evil.

With all my substances I will magnify my Lord,

So that I may do only what is God's will is.
Sanctify my soul with your fire,
Take away from me all who are liars,
Let your glory shine in every corners of my life,
And my mouth will shout only the joyous cry.

When we are dead,
We sleep on bed,
Where worms are our friend,
This all our soul won't care.
We go to sleep,
Where we can't feel,
What the world is doing,
What the world is thinking.
Our God laughs sitting in the heaven
When people being so foolish,
Praying for their dead fellow's spirit,
This is of no use please understand ye people.
After death there is no chance,
To reconcile, to repent and to be get cleansed.
This life is unique, which God have gifted us.
Live it to get more closer to Christ Jesus, the way towards our Heavenly Father
Pray for those who are dead,
Dead in the sense who are slaves serving this evil world,
Pray that may God save their soul,
So that while living they may gain that eternal abode.
