EASTER MESSAGE 2014
Dated 20th April 2014.

Greetings and blessings upon all faithful Anglicans on the blessed Easter Day in memory of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is risen from the death and is alive. Our object is to help the people to believe that Jesus Christ is alive today. Most people have experienced the death of a near& dear relative. They know the sense of grief and loss, when a Parent or a child dies, to unbelievers, who have no hope, death is terrible event.

1. The resurrection of Jesus Christ means that a Cross was a Victory over Satan and his Plan:

(a). The Apostles believed That a death of Jesus on the Cross was the end of all their hopes ( Luke 24 : 19-24).

(b). The resurrection came as a complete surprise to them and changed every thing. (Luke 24: 36 - 48).

(c). They realized that the Cross was not a shameful disaster but a glorious victory. Jesus was not dead but living (Acts 2: 22 - 24)

2. The Resurrection justifies the faith and witness of the Church:

(a).From the beginning the Cross and Resurrection have always been at the centre of the Gospel message.

(b). The Apostle saw Jesus alive. They knew that they followed, not a dead Messiah but a living Saviour.

Christians know that Jesus is alive and we have life after death on believing Jesus Christ. Saint Paul says again with tears, many live as enemies of the Cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their God is their stomach, and their glory is on their shame, their mind is on earthly things.

This is the message which gives us constant joy. Jesus Christ is ready to give us comfort and peace if we ask him. We should try praying and asking: Give me real joy. I surrender to you Jesus all that prevents your joy in my life. Confess your sins before him. Commit your life into his hands and you will find that Christ will give you pardon for your sins and give you everlasting joy. You will praise him and say, "Christ is my joy and my future hope that one day we all shall be in Heavenly home which Jesus Christ promised to take their one day." Then Gods plan will be fulfilled.

The blessing of God almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit be with you for ever and ever. In Jesus Christ our Lord.

GOOD FRIDAY 2014

Good Friday is the occasion when we have hope to step-in to the Heaven the House of our God Almighty, our Lord Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit and all His sons and daughters who washed themselves in the blood of Jesus which was shed on the Cross on this blessed day. God wants us to be with Him. Reason is in:

John 3:16 - 'For God so loved the world that he gave His begotten son, That who so ever believeth in Him shall not perish but have Eternal life.'

But this assurance is with condition as written in Psalm 95. Everyone who wants to be with God has to wash himself in blood of our Lord and he becomes special person, every thing changes in life, all become new, full of hope and joy. Jesus leads and shows the path himself as he said to one of the thief on the Cross ‘Today you will be with me in Paradise'. He took away our every sorrow and died for us. As Isaiah said became true: Isaiah 53: 4- 6:-

Surely he took up our pain, and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all'.

On this Good Friday the need is to repent and wash our sins which may be crimson, in the blood of Jesus who is crying 'Father forgive them'. God loves us and want us to come near to the Cross on this Good Friday. If we do so, God will accept us today itself and take us in His arms. His aim of sending Jesus to be crucified on the Cross will be fulfilled and complete.

Happy Easter

He is Risen!

So He brought me to the door of the north gate of the Lord's house; and to my dismay, women were sitting there weeping for Tammuz.
- Ezekial 8:14

On Easter Day Early morning Mary Magdalene went to Jesus Tomb and was very sorry and shocked to see that Jesus body was not there. A man in white asked them why you are searching Jesus in dead. He is not here He is alive. Immediately she was amazed and rays of hope shone in her and gladly went away from there and told to every one whom she met. She was full of joy and hope.

This is Easter. We have a new life in Jesus, a new hope and happiness and feeling of forgiveness. This is the Bliss what Jesus wants from all of us may have. One who achieves this Bliss His (Christ) wishes and work is done and complete. We have hope of life in Jesus Christ. Therefore let us remember that suffering has no place in the kingdom of God. In our existential reality where suffering is perpetrated by in justice, we see God crying out from within the suffering for our committed and concerted action on God's behalf.

Are we ready to listen to the cries of God's people? Or are we solely concerned about our own personal salvation, which has no basis in the Bible? The way to reach God is justice and peace. There is no easy way which will take us to God.

One Day he shall come again to take us so that where He lives we may also live with him forever. This was the aim of Our God Almighty for which God created man and now Satan was- defeated by Jesus on the Cross and He was risen from the dead and now He is amongst us to give peace and eternal Life.

Now the blessing of God almighty the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit be with you all on this Easter day.

Yours in Christ

Lent Days 2013

Lent: As we know, coming more near to God during these days, through fasting and Prayer. Lent has great significance in our lives. It is the time to keep us close to spiritual way of life. It is also the preparation of Easter day. Our Lord Jesus Christ the Saviour rose from dead to bring us close to the life after death. We observe these forty days in devotion and meditation to remember and concentrate on the gift of God to human being. Do we have time to remember the Gift of God "Jesus Christ"? We have to come out of our daily busy routine, and devote more time in prayer and fasting. We find both considerable diversity of practice regarding the fast before Easter.

We also observe there is no hard and fast rules to observe fasting, some think they ought to fast for one day; some observe fasting for forty hours. Blessed are those who observe fasting for forty days.

In Bible, there are few people, who observed fasting for forty days: - Moses went to meet God on Sinai Mountain where he spent forty days without eating and drinking any thing and God gave him 10 commandments for our lives.

Here we see when we are in presence of God we do not feel hungry or thirsty and we are more spiritual. Elijah, in 1 Kings 19:5-7 was ministered by an angel and fasted in the wilderness forty days. The synoptic gospels tell a similar story of Jesus in the wilderness for forty days. Jesus Christ after taking Baptism from John the Baptist went into the wilderness and remained there for forty days without eating and drinking because He spent all His time in God's presence. As soon as he finished His forty Days of fasting, He felt hungry. At once Satan came and tempted Him and was defeated.

The rules for fasting varied. In some areas of the Church abstained from all forms of meat and animal products, while other that come from flesh users made exceptions for food like fish. For example, Pope St. Gregory writing to St. Augustine of Canterbury issued the following rule: "We abstain from flesh, meat and from all things that come from flesh as milk, Cheese and eggs."

We, now a days leave many eatables in our foods like non-veg and alcohol items but it is more essential to maintain good habits and be in presence of God in prayer and fasting. We have to forget our bodily requirements and keep our selves in presence of God almighty fasting and praying, which would happen when Jesus helps us to clean ourselves in His Blood, and make us strong in spirit forgetting every thing required for our body. At this time, we see our Lord’s cross where He suffered for our sake and took away every sin of ours.

During this lent we have to think what we have to do to walk with Jesus. After His resurrection, he walked on the way to Emmaus. Are we ready to walk with Him? Are we washed in His Blood? This we have to rethink by prayer and fasting.

If , we are followers of Jesus Christ, we have to take our cross and follow Him on the Narrow way which is thorny but at the end we may get Reward to live with Jesus for ever in the House of God as promised that " I will take you so that where I live you may also live for ever".

The blessing of God almighty be with you to follow true Faith and dignity of Christian life. God bless you and give you Peace.

Faithfully in Christ

Message Of New - Year 2013

To:
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ
On behalf of myself, my family and all the Bishops and Vicars General of the Traditional Anglican Communion worldwide, I take this opportunity to wish you all a blessed and prosperous 2013.

Thank you for the support and prayers you have given your leadership in 2012. It has been a year of challenges, but we have triumphed over adversity by the power of Jesus Christ Our Lord, and the Traditional Anglican Communion has emerged far stronger than before, and is ready to embrace the New-Year with vigour and determination as we carry the Gospel into the world and follow our Lord's command.

I urge you to spend time in prayer this New Year, and to pray for the peace of all Christians and the Traditional Anglican Communion in particular. We have many who would try and disturb and disrupt our peace, but theirs is a way of darkness and not the way of Christ. As we focus on Christ and His Gospel, all these other matters will fall away and the purity of the Gospel will shine through.

The words of the Apostle Peter are as true today as they were so many years ago: "Be sober, be vigilant, your adversary the devil, like a roaring lion walketh about, seeking whom he may devour; whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world."

Do not allow any man to disturb your inner peace, or shake your trust in Christ Our Lord. He is with us, and will guide us through whatever trials that the New Year may hold. We trust our Good Shepherd and the Guardian of our souls, and he alone will sustain us, bless our health and protect our families. May God be with you all.

The Most Rev. Samuel P. Prakash
Acting Primate TAC,

Whitsunday 27th May - 2012 And The Holy Trinity

The Holy Spirit Baptizes us at Pentecost

Acts 1:5ff "John baptized you with water' He reminded them "but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit in just a few days."

Jesus instructed His disciples to wait and pray until they received the helper whom God would send. The disciples were waiting and praying when Jesus appeared and told them about Holy Spirit. He told them that "when the Holy Spirit shall come upon, you shall receive power" to testify Him about His death and resurrection. We are told that when He had spoken, He was taken into heaven in a cloud. He had urged His disciples not to be disheartened, and to wait and pray. While the disciples were looking upwards, two men in white told them, "This same Jesus, who is taken from you into Heaven, shall so come in like a manner as you have seen Him go into heaven." Many hem weight and pray and you'll get the Helper, don't be dishearten believe in me. There appeared two men who told them as you see Him going into Heaven You'll see Him coming from Heaven on clouds and many will mourn who crucified Him.

During the season of Pentecost, we have to decide whether we are prepared to receive the Baptism of Holy spirit or not. The fruit of Holy Spirit needs to be clearly visible in our lives, as it is written in I Corinthians 2: 4-11 by St. Paul. We are all recipients of gift of Holy Spirit given by God. What we have to decide is whether we are eligible to receive it or whether we are willing to receive it. Many Christian say that they follow the way Jesus showed us and that they have received the Holy Spirit, but they can be judged by their actions and the fruits of their lives. They lie against the Holy Spirit; something that Jesus said was unforgivable. We who are appointed to consecrate or ordain or confirm have great responsibilities commanded us. We have to ask ourselves; are we honest, sincere and ready to live by His teachings?

We kept the great feast of the church. Advent, Christmas, Lent, Good Friday, Easter and the Ascension have passed and we are now at Whitsunday. This will be followed by Trinity Sunday, where we proclaim the Three in One and One in Three. The Lamb who was crucified to wash away our sins, Holy Spirit who comes to baptize our souls to make them clean and holy, and the Father who forgives our sins in the name of His son, Jesus Christ our Lord, so that we may share His life in Them, The Holy Trinity.

What was the purpose of God in doing all these things? His desire was that man, created by Him, should live with Him forever.

At Christmas the Father sent His Son to come and show us a life without sin. He also showed us that man cannot live without Bread of Life, which is the Word of God. In order to our sins He was crucified, died and was buried, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven. This great Faith we say in the Creed of Athanasius on this Trinity Sunday.

Our Lord has fulfilled His Promise and has sent the Holy Spirit on Pentecost in order that we may have power and strength to do His work in this world. On this day of Pentecost, Peter stood and boldly preached about Jesus. By the work of Holy Spirit, everyone present heard the message in his own language what Peter was saying. Today, we have to examine ourselves and decide whether we will follow the path of the disciples. We must bind ourselves together in prayerful fellowship, and like Peter, in the power of the Holy Spirit; preach the message of salvation to mankind.

We are required to set an example as a united Body of Christ. We are to be faithful, honest and hopeful. We are to rebuke Satan and all his works, knowing that he has been defeated once and for all on the Cross of Calvary. We should not fear this battle, and in the power of Holy Spirit we are to take the Good News of His Kingdom to every country, town or village. If we are this faithful, and keep His commandments, we will be gathered to be with Jesus in Heaven when He comes again in glory.

Are we prepared to go with our Lord?

I give you Greetings and blessings in Christ during the Holy season of Trinity

In Christ our Lord

LENT MESSAGE

Lent is the Christian season of preparation of Easter Ash Wednesday on 22nd February 2012 has given us opportunity to meditate and receive spiritual strength. This is the first day of Lent which begins 40 days prior to Easter.

The Lent days are very important part in Christian life. The Lord Jesus Christ has put example for all Christians to observe in fasting, tolerance and prayer. This is the time to remember His sacrifice and sufferings, his life, seven words from cross, His death, burial and resurrection.

The Bible does not teach us customs of Lent, however, the practice of repentance and mourning in Ashes is found in 2 Samuel 13:19, Esther 4:1, Job 2:8, Daniel 9:3 and Mathew 11:21.

We live in sinful life which we commit through words, thoughts and deeds. Our desire is to come out of sinful life. There is no way to come out of our sins but only way to believe in God through His Son Jesus Christ. He is the only way to wash us and give peace and happiness of life. Follow Christ Jesus and put your burden on him. He is the only way to keep you away from sin and measurable life. He has promised to provide everlasting life after death. Come near to Christ during this Lenten season and get peace and everlasting life.
