Land line or Mobile phone?

As a young child I remember the phone booth, where people queue up to call and reach out to their loved ones and business associates.
The average citizen could not afford a telephone in his home and the telephone booth was one of the few means of reaching out to people some distance away.
At such booths, there’s an attendant who keeps things in order and serve the public.
Such is not the case anymore. No one would queue up to make a phone call anymore, thanks to the mobile phone.

Reaching out to God was indeed like the telephone booth.
People would have to go to the temple to meet the priest, who in turn would atone for there sins before God in the Holy of holies.
Like the land line before the mobile phone, It seemed good at the time until we got a better offer. Jesus literally gave each person in humanity a mobile telephone.

After his death on the cross, the veil in the temple, that very veil that separates the Holy of holies from the people and make it sacred, for priests only.
That same veil was as torn from top to bottom, granting free access to God, through Jesus alone, for all who believe.

With this mobile phone (salvation) we may make calls to God (prayer) as much as we want, as often as we please because it’s pre-paid. Yes Jesus already paid for it with his life. What privilege!

This seems to have always been the plan of God. To reach out and be known by his people on a per person basis. Consider the following scriptures from the book of Exodus.

19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of pri­ests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the chil­dren of Israel.

19:17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount.

20:19 And they said unto Moses, Speak thou with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.

Thus for fear of their lives, they appointed a middle man between they and God and rejected their priesthood.

Jesus came to restore the priesthood to mankind,
1Peter 2:9 But ye are a cho­sen generation, a royal pri­est­hood, an holy nation, a pe­cu­liar people;
He came to restore relationships and bid us to tell all people about his mobile phones (salvation).

Unfortunately, we may decide to appoint a mediator in our pastor or priest or church doctrine, by idolising or holding on to doctrine in contrast to the scriptures, or we may go to God through Christ.

We may also decide not to use our mobile phones, by rejecting the salvation of God.
We may decide not to keep the mobile phone charged, for making and receiving calls (prayers and quiet time).

The choice indeed is ours but the mobile phone (salvation) is always within reach and accessible. In fact it has been given to us. Let us make full use of this opportunity.
For how shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation.

About John Zachariah (aka John the Baptist )
Luke 1:15b
and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit, even before his birth.
Luke 1:41b
Elizabeth’s child leaped within her, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 
Luke 1:80a
John grew up and became strong in spirit.
The above scriptures blows my mind

David said in Sin did my mother conceive me.
But not for John the Baptist
He was filled with the Spirit from before conception.
Conducted Holy Ghost ministration on his mother while in the womb.
And to confirm the infilling, there was no other filling after birth. He rather grew strong in the Spirit.

Don’t know about you, but I think I’ll start praying for Holy Ghost infilling for my Children, just like John. For even before Zachariah went in to his wife, the angel said he will be filled before his birth.

Yield Not To Temptation – Horatio R. Palmer

Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin;
Each victory will help you some other to win;
Fight manfully onward, dark passions subdue,
Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.

Refrain:
Ask the Savior to help you,
Comfort, strengthen and keep you;
He is willing to aid you,
He will carry you through.

Shun evil companions, bad language disdain,
God’s Name hold in reverence, nor take it in vain;
Be thoughtful and earnest, kindhearted and true,
Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.

To him that o’ercometh, God giveth a crown;
Through faith we shall conquer, though often cast down;
He Who is our Savior our strength will renew;
Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.

yours truly
