GROW IN HOLINESS

By Paul Dhinakaran

Dearly beloved,

In the Bible, we read that God chose a young man called Joshua to lead the Israelites into the Promised Land after the death of Moses.

When the Israelites Crossed the Jordan River, they camped at a place called Gilgal. This was the place where Joshua sanctified himself along with all the armies of Israel.

In Joshua Chapter 10, we read that God gave Joshua and his men a great victory over their enemies. Yet he did not stay behind to celebrate the victory that the Lord gave him, but came back to Gilgal, the place of sanctification. The Bible says, “Then Joshua returned with all Israel to the camp at Gilgal” (Joshua 10:15). He and his men marched all night long to that place of sanctification to pray again; they honoured the Lord. Desiring sanctification, they returned to the place that was pleasing to the Lord.

Thus should you guard yourself holy.

We read in Revelation 22:11,12: “Let him who does right continue to do right; and let him who is holy continue to be holy. "Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.” The Lord Jesus says, Behold, I am coming quickly. He who is holy, let him be holy still. I want to command still more blessings…” Today, open your heart to the Lord and return to holiness.

In Joshua 3:5, Joshua tells the Israelites, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you." Holiness is turning to God, waiting at His feet and obeying His Word, and this is what I have learnt. I obey the Lord when He speaks to me. The Holy Spirit gives me the grace to do this. We need to leave the worldly desires, wait at His feet and be truthful and faithful in our deeds, words and thoughts in order to obey Him. The Holy Spirit will help us in our weakness (Romans 8:26).

The Lord says, "Be holy, because I am holy” (1 Peter 1:16). He is holy in nature and expects us to be holy since we are His children and belong to Him. When we fear Him and walk in the path of holiness, He will be our strong refuge; we shall have everlasting protection under His mighty hand.

Oh Lord You've searched me
You know my way
Even when I fail You
I know You love me

Your holy presence
Surrounding me
In every season
I know You love me
I know You love me

At the cross I bow my knee
Where Your blood was shed for me
There's no greater love than this
You have overcome the grave
Your glory fills the highest place
What can separate me now

You go before me
You shield my way
Your hand upholds me
I know You love me

At the cross I bow my knee
Where Your blood was shed for me
There's no greater love than this
You have overcome the grave
Your glory fills the highest place
What can separate me now?(x2)

You tore the veil
You made a way
When You said that it is done(x2)

And when the earth fades
Falls from my eyes
And You stand before me
I know You love me
I know You love me

At the cross I bow my knee
Where your blood was shed for me
There's no greater love than this
You have overcome the grave
Your glory fills the highest place
What can separate me now?(x2)

You tore the veil
You made a way
When You said that it is done(x4)

GOD SENDS ANGELS



By Paul Dhinakaran

Dearly beloved,

The Lord says, “I know the plans I have for you...plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" (Jeremiah 29:11). According to this verse, in this new month, may God grant you double fold blessing which He has prepared for you.

Even before the foundation of the world, the Lord has ordained that all His will should be perfected in His children’s lives only for the good. This is His decree! In order to fulfill this, He dwells with you to bear witness that you are God’s child. He has prepared all good gifts for your life so that goodness and mercy shall always follow you.

To lead you into this good plan, He sends His angels along with you. He promises, "See, I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared” (Exodus 23:20). When you give your life to the Almighty God, He appoints an angel for you, to take you to the place or position that you need to receive the blessing that is in store for you. The devil can never push you away from this path. The Lord Jesus has said, "See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of My Father in heaven” Matthew 18:10).

Several years back, my father Dr. D.G.S. Dhinakaran saw this in heaven. He was standing before the throne of God. He saw thousands of angels coming up to heaven from the earth. Each angel was carrying the incense of prayer offered by the people of the earth. The Lord at once came to know of everyone’s prayer request and looked at them. Within a moment, He gave the answer and blessing to all those prayer requests brought by the angels according to each one’s request. What a wonder!

In Genesis 28:12-15, we see how the angels appeared to Jacob. When Jacob was fleeing from his brother out of fear for his life, he sees a dream in the wilderness. In that, he sees a ladder set up on the earth; its top reached to heaven. The angels of God were ascending and descending on it and above that the Lord stood and spoke to him about his future that He had decreed for him. Accordingly, Jacob who left home with just a staff in his hands returned back with double fold blessing (Genesis 32:10).

Dear one, today you may be troubled saying, “Oh, I don’t know what my future would be?” But the Lord keeps on witnessing about you that you are God’s child. He brings you to the place of goodness which He has already ordained for you, through His angel. From now, He is going to lift you up in such a manner that you will carry double fold blessing. You shall have double honour and blessing in the same place where you were ashamed. He is going to honour you in such a way that all the people are going to witness about you, saying, “He (she) is God’s child. God Himself brought him/her to this exalted position.”

In Psalm 91:11 we read, “He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.” As said in verse, God will order His angels to carry you safely in all your paths and bring you to the place of blessing.

Kim Clement`s Prophecy: From Whittier, CA- Earthquake in the Northwest & New Governing Power in India



http://kimclementvault.com/prophecyread.asp?num=187

April 23, 2005- Whittier, CA

"There will be an earthquake in the Northwest. And it shall be between Portland Oregon and Seattle WA up into Vancouver. This has already happened (before) and it will come to pass and the people listen and say ok, its already being spoken, so now we must prepare ourselves. First we are going to pray. And we are going to pray if it be possible that it would be prevented. But in the event that it does come to pass, we are going to have money and we are going to be prepared to provide and suddenly we are going to have organizations to put money together so that when it does happen they have already practical provision. We can get to the place where we say oh don't worry it will be fine. I am just telling you its going to happen and God is going to spare lives and there is going to be a great shaking in this state, listen to me, not only an earthquake but a spiritual shaking that's going to bring about a tidal wave of God's glory throughout America.

For God says even the nation, even India.  This prophet shall go.  And God said they will hear music that will change their lives.  But you will see this prophet going to the prime minister and you will see God in a new governing power as this prophet will go, and you will be carried with him to that nation."

Note: Though in the Prophecy Kim has not mentioned explicitly the name of the prophet in India, but as perceived by The AG it may probably be Dr. Paul Dhinakaran


How to Know the Will of God By Greg Laurie – Sermon

The Secret Place



By Greg Laurie

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1

When you were a child, did you ever have a hiding place — a place you would run to when you were afraid or wanted to be alone? God wants to be your hiding place. The good news is that you can retreat to this hiding place wherever you are. When you are tied up in bumper-to-bumper traffic, you can retreat there. When you are having a conflict at work and don't know what to say or how to deal with it, you can immediately retreat into that secret place of the Most High as you live in fellowship and communion with God.

It is not only dwelling there, but it is living under the shadow of the Almighty. Have you ever tried to walk in someone's shadow? It can be done, but you have to stay really close. That is exactly the picture here in Psalm 91:1. God is saying, "I want you to be so close that you are actually in My very shadow." If you do that, it will give you the courage to face life.

Remember the story of the great prophet Elijah, who boldly stormed into the court of wicked King Ahab and Queen Jezebel and declared that it would not rain, except at his word? Where did he get the courage to pull off something like that? Though Elijah was in the court of powerful monarchs, he recognized that at the same time, he was in the presence of an even more powerful Monarch. He was dwelling in the secret place of the Most High.

If you kneel before God, you can stand before any man. Are you walking in this fellowship with Him?

Beneath The Waters (I will rise) - Hillsong United [Brooke Fraser Ligertwood] - With Lyrics



This is my revelation
Christ Jesus crucified
Salvation through repentance
At the cross on which He died

Now hear my absolution
Forgiveness for my sin
And I sink beneath the waters
That Christ was buried in

I will rise
I will rise
As Christ was raised to life
Now in Him
Now in Him
I live

I stand a new creation
Baptized in blood and fire
No fear of condemnation
By faith I’m justified

I rise as You are risen
Declare Your rule and reign
My life confess Your lordship
And glorify Your name

Your word it stands eternal
Your kingdom knows no end
Your praise goes on forever
And on and on again

No power can stand against You
No curse assault Your throne
No one can steal Your glory
For it is Yours alone

I stand to sing Your praises
I stand to testify
For I was dead in my sin

But now I rise
I will rise
As Christ was raised to life
Now in Him
Now in Him
I live
