Love of God and a Great, Unique Sacrifice

March 18, 2016

The Love of God

The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the most kind, compassionate, merciful and loving God. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life" (Begotten means the only one of this kind). To quote from Jeremiah 31:3: "The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee." He loves us continuously even though we commit wrong. God is love. "He that loveth not, knoweth not God; for God is love (1 John 4:8). The Almighty is like a friend speaks to a friend as He spoke unto Moses like a friend. Jesus called us friends. I quote John 15:15: "Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends." Indeed he is a loving and caring. He has no master and slave relationship with His children as He is our heavenly Father.

Sometimes children of God may pray earnestly with a request to provide their wants and desires instantaneously. It may be a genuine cause / case or may not be However God knows precisely when to give how to give where to give. God always gives, gives and forgives. Man gets, gets and later forgets. Supposedly answered the prayers instantly and showered blessings they may not utilize for a good cause / case instead squander immediately. So when He chooses to provide it is at His discretion / appointed time which remains for everlasting.

First Transgression

We are all born free. God gave Adam and Eve a free will in the Garden of Eden and to eat any of the tree except one command forbidding eating of good and evil tree located in the midst of the garden for in the day that you eat of it you shall die. The serpent asked Eve did God say, you shall not eat any tree of the garden. And Eve said we may eat any fruit of the tree except one tree located in the midst of the garden, which you will not touch lest you die. The serpent beguiled/enticed Eve saying you will not die for God knows when you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God knowing good and evil. So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food Eve found the forbidden tree was a delight/pleasant to her eyes. Sin does only matters to God. God punished the man to till the ground in his hard sweat and to woman bearing children in labor pain. After the transgression did man and woman die eating from the forbidden tree food? No. However the sayings of God; death means body and soul’s permanent death. Once a person transgressed the commandment of God, sin entered into human and this sin has distanced / kept great chasm between a human and a Holy God. Conspicuously a human eye commits 50 percent of the sins. The first sin of Eve and Adam was from the delight to her eyes. A human’s other limbs of body; the ear, hands, mind, legs, mouth, heart and the senses commits remaining 50 percent of the sins.

Prophesy: Jesus coming in Flesh

Ever since the creation, God loved His children and gave a way-out from the first transgression. God came down to earth in flesh to save soul of a human from everlasting death to a living soul eternally in the heaven. I quote Genesis 3:15: "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." A Woman’s seed (Jesus) shall come to defeat the divisive tactics of Evil. The Satan deceived and provoked killers of Jesus subsequently increased afflictions as Jesus bore all our sins and nailed on the cross. The Cross of Jesus became heavy; painful and afflictions of Jesus were increased / bruised. Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world and we are all free from the Sin of Adam and Eve through the blood of Jesus Christ because Jesus was without sin and without blemish. As per the Old Testament sin offering should be without blemish. The prophesy states that Jesus, a sinless person shall come to carry the sins of the world to offer a perfect greatest unique sacrifice. A sinner cannot carry the sins of the world without blemish and spotless. Jesus was young, (30 years, first born, even first-born from the dead) without blemish pure, sinless, and spotless. John 8:46

Prophesy: Abel's Offering and Slaying

Cain and Abel both brought first fruit of the ground an offering to the Lord and Cain’s countenance fell. Abel also brought firstlings of his flock as offering to the Lord. The Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering but unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. Cain became jealous and angry against the Lord. The good offering was established and the deficient offering was not likened to God. Cain the jealous got angry and Killed Abel who offered first fruit to the Lord without blemish. Here the prophesy states that a good righteous person will be killed by the jealous, unrighteous wicked people. I quote Genesis 4:9-10: "And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother’s keeper? And he said, What hast thou done? The voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground." Cain asks God "Am I my brother’s keeper?! Just realize how much Cain was stubborn to respond to God stubbornly. Thousands of years later Jesus the righteous, sinless, spotless and faultless was killed and the blood was shed from the cross on to the ground.

Prophesy: Noah’s Ark Measurements

God asked Noah the righteous person to build an Ark to save themselves from the flood waters as a great destruction is to come upon the unrighteous and wicked people. To save Noah and his sons and daughters God provided only three measurements to build an ark. He never gave four or more measurements instead only three measurements which itself is a prophesy. Genesis 6:15 "This is how you are to make it: the length of the ark 300 cubits, its breadth 50 cubits, and its height 30 cubits".

The boat was God the Father, Jesus was the Captain and the Holy Spirit was moving the boat to save Noah and his family from the flood waters. 300 cubits depicts God the Father, Jesus started his ministry precisely at the age of 30 and preached the Gospel for three or three and half years and after sacrificial death on the cross and resurrection exactly on the 50th day Holy Spirit came down to Apostles in a fire of tongues. While Jesus was on this earth planet guiding, teaching and strengthening to his disciples Jesus says: John 14:26 But the comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you". The Holy Spirit came upon the disciples in a fire of tongues on the 50th day of Pentecost after Jesus death and resurrection. The disciples of Jesus filled with the Holy Spirit and preached the Gospel boldly remembered whatever Jesus had taught them without fear or dread.

Prophesy: Test of Abraham’s Faith

Prior to the great sacrifice on the cross a human has to sacrifice an animal without blemish as sin offering. There is no remission of sin without shedding the blood. I quote Hebrews 9:22: "And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission." God tested Isaac to sacrifice his only son on the mount of Moriah I quote Genesis 22:2: "And he said take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of. Isaac asked his father, where is the lamb for sacrifice."

In response to Isaac Abraham with faith spoke to him I quote Genesis 22:8: "And Abraham said, my son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering." Abraham bound Isaac and laid him on the altar upon the wood. And Abraham took the knife to slay his son. But the angel of the Lord called him from heaven and stopped Abraham sacrificing his own son Isaac and a voice said I shall provide thee (Prediction: God himself will provide a Lamb for sacrifice) and gave Abraham a Ram on the spot which was stuck in a thicket with its horns to sacrifice on the wooden altar. Remember a lamb is different from a Ram. A Ram has has horns.

Prophesy: Passover Lamb in the time of Moses

Later God spoke to Moses to tell the congregation of Israel to take a Lamb without blemish a male of the first year from the sheep or from the goats according to the number of the souls. And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper doorpost of the houses, And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the Lord’s pass over. Sprinkling of blood on the two side posts and on the upper door post predicts Jesus shed blood on the wooden cross to save us, the sinners.

The compassionate nature is seen while one of his disciples smote a right ear of Malchus and Jesus touched his ear and healed a soldier’s ear Luke 49:50-51. One of the thief crucified along with Jesus rebuked another thief saying I quote Luke 23:40-41: "But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear. God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss." Luke 23:41. "And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise" Luke 24:43. Every human has a chance to humble himself before breaths his last to repent whole heartily and the power of forgiveness shall transform into heavenly bliss.

At this juncture few critics may question now we are all free from the sins as Jesus bore all our sins and died on the cross. So you don’t have sins, even committing daily and everybody can enter into heaven. Yes. We the people have an assurance to go to heaven through the blood of Jesus Christ shed on the cross. Yet we have to constantly purify ourselves and ask forgiveness whole heartily and remain not sinning. Jesus is the way the truth and the life. Truth comes from God and of course the truth has come in flesh and through the scriptures. I quote John 14:6: "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Scriptures are from God and the children of God believe and follow the scriptures.


Abraham’s only legitimate son was through Sarah. Ishmael is also a son of Abraham through Hagar the bondwoman (Genesis 15:3; 21:10). The salves / bondwomen are bought and paid daily or monthly or yearly on agreement (Paid servants). Legitimacy is not considered in a bonded man and a bonded woman bought on agreement. Abraham and Hagar had a Master and Slave relationship. Husband and wife have no master and slave relationship but having equal rights and relationship. Once the husband dies inheritance goes to wife and not to any of a Master’s bonded-women or her children. I quote "For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman" (Galatians 4:22). Noah, his wife and children were saved from the flood waters likewise whosoever follows the faith in Jesus Christ should be baptized in water in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit / Holy Ghost as taught by Jesus Matthew 28:19 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost"." The Jealous man Cain killed a righteous person. Jesus is a righteous person, sinless and faultless was killed by the jealous and wicked men shedding the blood on cross to the earth. Jesus proclaimed Abel is a righteous and a prophet (Matthew 23:34-35). Jesus predicted His sufferings, crucifixion, and death on the cross and on the third day He shall rise again.

Right from the beginning God’s promise was redeeming humans from Adam and Eve’s transgression. Our ancestors lived through the law sacrificing animals as sin offering. In the last days God in flesh and whosoever believeth shall live through the faith because Jesus shed blood on the cross once for all and all of us are free from sacrificing any animal or bird as sin offering. Eating such sacrificial meat is also forbidden to all the Christians. Thus Jesus accomplished all the laws without blotting out an iota of God’s laws. He is a righteous and a Just God. His lamp is for our feet and a light to our Path. May the love of God and Peace from the Prince of Peace be with you all. This is the Love of God, a Great and Unique Sacrifice. We have cell phones. If you have any doubt you can call 24x7 to this number Jeremiah 33:3.

    @Dominos Franky, Mangalure
    - I agree that Dr. Prabhu’s last sentence is wrong
    - The source of the problem but ‘Modernists’ and their subversion of the Roman Catholic Church. Please read the encyclicals of St. Pope Pius X and recognize what the Church has always taught rather than what it is teaching today. Then you will discover the reason why the secular Priests behave the way they do.

    Dear Mr. Prabhu,

    The theory of evolution is taking a beating everyday because there is not a shred of evidence, if by evolution you mean that one creature evolves into becoming another creature. Micro-evolution is seen and has been tested, but it only means we see variations in colours of the feather (just as an example) and other small variations. Evolutionists lie if they tell you that they have proof. Even exhibits that they show as proof have been 'doctored' to show that evolution has occurred. There is nothing scientific about evolution.

    The subject is vast, but I will leave you with just one scientific fact: evolution from a lower being to a higher being requires added or new information in the DNA. Mutations have only gone to prove and there is loss of information. The DNA code in any organism is so unique that bacteria will remain bacteria and apes will remain apes. Having said all this, there are arguments and counter arguments as to whether the first human was Adam.

    The case is not "closed" as yet!

    Christians of Mangalore and Udupi speak Kannada, Tulu, English, Konkani, Hindi and few of them in Malayalam and Tamil also.
    The mother tongue of Jesus was Aramaic. In my opinion, it doesn't mean Jesus was not knowing other languages of the peoples such as Hebrew, Greek and Latin which were prevalent during the time of Jesus.

    He is the Truth.
    He is the Holy One.
    He is the light of the world.
    He is sinless and faultless.

    Jesus said: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Luke 5:32.


    I do remember you all in my prayers. God bless you all and your families.

    Pray for me. May God bless me and my family also.
    Peace be with you all.

    Wishing you all a happy feast of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    May we all meet Him soon in His Glorious Second Coming.

    Sir Dr. Prabhu, your last sentence is absolutely wrong. As an answer, please read 1st Chapter of Bible.

    However, you have some misunderstanding. It is the Secular Priests, Jesuits Priests or Roman Catholic church which does not believe in First Sin and in Adam. Recently Pope Francis also declared the same but they upheld the evolution theory by saying that first 12 chapters of Bible are mythological, never took place and not part of history.

    Dear Dr Mohan Prabhu, LL.D,QC, mangalore/ottawa,
    God is Almighty and not limited and narrow-minded to any one particular language, Place, time and space.
    Christians worship of God is not limited to one particular language, space, time and place.
    Christians pray and worship in any languages even in their own mother tongues facing towards any place at any time nonetheless in the planes, ships, boats, trains, cars, two wheelers, trucks and in buses. God knows the languages of the humans. We pray and worship in English, German, African language, urdu language, Kannada, Konkani, Hindi, Thogolo, Bisaya (Philippines), Spanish, Latin, Chinese, Malai, in Tulu and even in if we know in Sanskrit and etc., etc.. The Holy Bible is translated into many languages of the world so that all the national peoples perceive and pursue.
    We Christians call the name of God in different languages in different names such as in Greek-Theos, in German- Gott, German Old - Diet, in English - God, Norweign - Gud, Dutch - Godt, French - Dieu, Latin - Deus, in Kannada - Eeshwar and Parameshwar, in Konkani - Deiv/Dev and Somi, in Arabic - Allah, etc., etc., Hence in all most translated books of the Holy Bible the name of God is not only one particular name. The name of God differs from one language to another language.
    So in several languages we call Him in Several names.

    However God is Almighty not limited to one particular language.
    The Holy Bible has Jewish scriptures and in addition the Gospel.

    This is an inspiring article for all Christians and very timely. But it suffers from a narrow minded view. Christian view does not square with the Jewish, Hindu and Islamic view of God Almighty. Perhaps they have their own Saviours and religious beliefs both of life on earth and life eternal. Jews, particularly, do not believe in the so-called "original sin" and scientific developments (evolution theory) have proved Adam was not the first human on earth.

    Thought provoking article by Joseph F. Gonsalves. God sacrificed his life for all of us to save sinners. Through his love we are living in this world even though some are going through bad times in their lives. But I am sure he will redeem from all this. To get something in life we have to sacrifice something. This is the word of God.

    At a time when people are over busy with their daily tasks not limited to some weekly spoon feeding in the Churches, God’s people desire some extra vitamins too for babes have grown up, require more solid food. Thanks to Bro.Joseph for taking some trouble to convey or to remind God’s children from Gneiss to Revelation ‘Love of God and a Great, Unique Sacrifice’.

    Luke 19:40 Jesus replied, "I can guarantee that if they are quiet, the stones will cry out loud." Therefore, if they do not open up as they should, I can use anybody to carry my messages loud and clear, Jesus had meant.
