'Alleluia', “Alleluia”


The first Sunday after Easter. Through the service the choir kept singing “Alleluia”, “Alleluia”

The Disciples had gathered in the upper room afraid to venture out when the Lord appeared in their midst. They saw and they believed. 

The lord said (Aramaic) “La Ilaha Ill Illah” -  “There is no god but God”  

After the descent of the Holy Spirit they had the courage to venture out into the world. 

Everywhere they went about, they uttered these words...

“La Ilaha Ill Illah” -  “There is no god but God”  

as the apostles moved westwards with time it got adapted to suit their tongues and today we sing          “Alleluia”, “Alleluia”

The Tower of Babel .........


Genesis 11:1-9

Until this point in the Bible, the whole world had one language. The people of the earth became skilled and decided to build a Tower that would reach Heaven.

God came to see the Tower they were building and perceived their intentions. In his infinite wisdom, he knew this stairway to Heaven, would only lead the people away from God. As a result God caused them to speak in different languages, so they would not understand each other, and thus thwarted their plans.




Today with our Transgenic crops, Intergalactic flights, Cloning and other Technological advances, are we building another Tower to challenge the Supremacy of God. We already do not understand each other. Are we heading for the next Armageddon?

The Prodigal Son .........


The story of the Prodigal Son told by Eisa (Jesus) while responding to the Pharisees' 
"This man welcomes sinners and eats with them"
Eisa (Jesus) tells the story of a man who has two sons. The younger son asks his father to give him his portion of the family estate as an early inheritance. Once received, the son promptly sets off on a long journey to a distant land and begins to waste his fortune on wild living. When the money runs out, the son finds himself in dire circumstances. He takes a job feeding pigs. He is so destitute that he even longs to eat the food assigned to the pigs.
The young man finally comes to his senses, remembering his father. In humility, he recognizes his foolishness, decides to return to his father and ask for forgiveness and mercy.

The father, who had been waiting, receives his son back with open arms of compassion. He is overjoyed by the return of his lost son! Immediately the father turns to his servants and asks them to prepare a giant feast in celebration. Meanwhile, the older son is not one bit happy when he comes in from working the fields and discovers a party going on to celebrate his younger brother's return. The father tries to dissuade the older brother from his jealous rage explaining, "You are always with me, and everything I have is yours."

What is of interest in this parable is, God represented as the father, will not get offended at us rebelling and quitting his heavenly kingdom.He lets us experience this earthly life, enjoying worldly pleasures.If there is a yearning to return and if we do,God does not refer to our past, but celebrates our return. Should the angels complain, he simply tells them ”You are always with me, 
and everything I have is yours.
