The Evolutionists Are Coming ….

Oh My God!!!
They come with an attractive or a charming smile.
They start conv. without any intro.
They put forward their purpose of coming at once.
They tell that I descended from an ape.
They tell that every thing floated together
They say again that everything managed to stay that way
But I offended at it and said an outright NO. to it.
Sorry Dear ones, this is untrue and I can’t believe it.
You must stop this false propaganda,
Which has no solid evidence to show?
The Bibles says that God the Almighty created everything,
The Earth, Moon, the stars, seas and everything in it - living and non-living.
I firmly believe that, and sure it’s true too.
I can’t even imagine that I belong in a zoo.
Oh! My God! What a horrible and pathetic situation that will be!
Instead I believe in God’s Word that He created me in His image!
What a pleasant thing it is to think that way, and its true too!
Because everything the Bible says is happened and is happening too!
So you too must believe what the Bible says.

Saying this I presented each one a New Testament Pocket Bible
I procured the other day from the local book store.

I am sure this will make you to believe the other way round.
Without uttering a word, they just left my place.

Jesus' Second Coming Is At Hand

When I was thinking about the next Alphabet “C”  for the A to Z blogging  many words came to my mind but keeping every other words aside I just started thinking about the Lord Jesus' second coming. Yes His Coming is very important to any Christian believer, waiting for His coming is the ultimate aim or purpose of any believer.  Thus this write up for today.

Again my mind started thinking about its seriousness.  But unfortunately most of the believers are just neglecting about it and living a careless life.

suddenly a story I heard in my Sunday school classes came to my mind.  The teacher was talking about a rich man and his assistant, The rich business man was a Christian believer and he was having vast resources and income thru his business.  Though he was rich and had everything he was not a proud man instead he was a very simple man and he led an exemplary life.  Along with his business activities he spent lot of time to spread the good news among his associates and workers.  His assistant too heard the Good News of Gospel several times but he never heeded to his words,  one day after talking to him about Jesus Christ and salvation the rich man said,  "Sam, when the Lord Jesus comes you may have my business and you may have all my assets and you can take everything I have now. Hearing these words the assistant baffled at him but at the same time he thanked his master for his wonderful offer.

That night the assistant went to his bed, but could not sleep , instead he started thinking about his master’s offer. When Christ Jesus comes his master will go to heaven, then what will happen to me? Do I need all these things he offered? What will I do with that, what will happened to me after that, such thoughts came to his mind and he could not sleep that night. 

Morning he got up from his bed and rushed to his master and said, Sir, I do not want anything of yours either money or house or any assets.  I want to know that I am also going to heaven. The rich man led his assistant to heaven.

My dear friends, what will happen to you when Jesus comes?

Did you ever thought about it? Your dear ones may go to heaven but what about you? You might have heard about Jesus and His Gospel several times like the gentle man in the story, but never responded to it instead you have put it off.

This is the right time to take a decision on it.

That will be the greatest of all decisions you have ever made. You can rejoice in that decision.
Are you ready to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord or are again going to keep this aside.  Are you ready for the Lord Jesus to come? Or will you want to be left behind when others will take up to heaven?
His coming is at hand ! Are you ready to receive Him.

Please visit this link to know more about his signs of His coming Read Matthew Chapter 24 here at this link. It gives a clear picture about jesus’ second coming

He is the author of many books out of which the "Wings of Fire" An Autobiography of APJ Abdul Kalam stands apart.

Here is a book review  about this famous book 'Wings of Fire.'

"God may not be realized without intense yearning, longing or sincerity; we may not see him without practicing rigorous austerities but we can certainly see his manifestation in a few great personalities.

Kalam, our beloved President – Scientist – Leader – Philosopher–Saint– Musician–Writer–Philanthropist– Missile man–a Visionary- - - -, is a diamond in the Necklace of Mother India, and undoubtedly a role model for all of us.

His Autobiography, Wings of Fire is a book of Positive thinking; it helps us to learn about how a person born and brought up in a remote village, has taken, seen nothing but positive aspects of those he met, lived and worked with; and how he assimilated, practiced the values of great visionaries Vikram Sarabhai, Satish dhawan, Bramhaprakash and succeeded in making the country march towards excellence in the field of Science and Technology."

Here is a yet another  wonderful speech he made few years back.  To read please click on the link  @ Anns Blog
