    India is talking about Priya Prakash Varrier's cute wink.

    That God does not WINK at sin - especially stubbornly done by believers - and calls us to de-LINK (repent) from sin immediately, is an oft-repeated Bible Truth (I Cor. 5; Rev. 2:20-22). - DUKE JEYARAJ VIA TWITTER

    It was a privilege to minister to the youth of Revival Centre Ag Church following my SABC Senior and the Hyderabad English Section AG Presbyter, Rev. Mathew George's warm invitation on the 20th January, 2018. The Lord did mighty things. Recommitment time at the altar. Every single person. The Holy Spirit coming upon the youth in power. The speaking of tongues. "This is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes!" Shared three messages (What The Prophetic Books Teaches To Today's Youth & The Hot Topics They Grapple With/Winning Over Temptation Empowered By The Holy Spirit/Who Will Go To Heaven & Who Will Go To Hell? (Revelation 14). And answered questions of youth in two live Q & A Sessions, frankly. Young people asked me some questions I was answering for the for the first time in my youth ministry. This wonderful young bunch was also fasting during the day(as part of this church's 21-day fasting prayer). Even during the session breaks and power cut, they gathered in groups and prayed and receiving fresh power from the Lord. Some of the corporate company youth in attendance that day were there after having finished their night shift the previous day. Some of the students who were there gave up their exam preparation time to be in God's presence and hear his Word being taught for over six hours. Amazing! Video recordings of Duke's messages and the Q and A time will be uploaded onto our Youtube and Facebook Video channels, shortly. Thank you for praying.

    TIME CAN BE UP FOR ANYONE OF US READING THIS

    TIME CAN BE UP FOR ANYONE OF US READING THIS
    Duke Jeyaraj brings out a Bible Truth from viral Oprah Winfrey speech

    Oprah Winfrey famously said while talking about powerful, rich men who sexual advantage of women who worked under them this: “Their time is up!” She did this on 7 January 2018 in her acceptance speech at the 2018 Golden Globes. That reminded me of the fact that for anyone of us reading this, the time can be up! Now, is the time for ALL of us to turn from sin and put our faith in Jesus who died for us on the Cross and rose again, the Bible teaches (2 Cor. 6:2). The Bible gives us three reasons why this time can over pretty quickly: 1. We can die anytime (James 4:14, The Bible). 2. Jesus can return any second and after that it will be too late to come to him (I Tim. 5:2-3, The Bible). 3. The Holy Spirit who is speaking to us now may stop speaking to still-stubborn-in-sin us, and when this happens we can’t get saved (Gen. 6:3, The Bible). Eternal Hell awaits those for who still haven’t turned from sin and put their faith in Jesus whom the time will be eventually up! But a joy unspeakable and full of glory awaits those who turn from sin and turn to Christ, right now (I Peter 1:8, The Bible)!!!

    DOES THE BIBLE CHALLENGE US TO READ IT DAILY?

    DOES THE BIBLE CHALLENGE US TO READ IT DAILY?
    Dr. Duke Jeyaraj

    The Guardian reported that people spend about three hours a day on their smartphone (29 December 2016). While we spent a lot of time with our smartphones, do we even start an important thing like Bible-reading?

    Is there any challenge in the Bible that calls us to read the Bible DAILY? Indeed! Where?

    The first challenge to read the Bible daily comes from HEAVEN!

    During the wilderness journey of the Israelites, manna from heaven came down! The people of Israel had to collect the manna from heaven daily and consume it immediately (Ex. 16:3). The Bible is a Heaven-inspired book (2 Tim. 3:16). We must spend time daily in God’s Word, collecting God’s truth for us from it for our spiritual nourishment!

    We have a challenge from the PALACE, next, inspiring us to read the Bible daily!

    The King of Israel were called to acquire a copy of the Laws of God and read it daily, the Law of Moses proclaimed (Dt 17:18-19). In the New Testament, aren’t we the kings, as we are called the royal priesthood (I Pet. 2:9)? Should we also not read God’s Word daily so that we will know how to behave in his Kingdom and extend his rule on earth daily?!

    The third challenge for daily Bible reading comes from the TEMPLE! Jesus had this noticeable habit of going to the Temple, and teaching there daily (Lk 19:47; Matt 26:55). He taught in the Temple daily as if to tell us that we should take efforts to be exposed to his words daily and lap them up!!!

    The fourth challenge for daily Bible reading comes from the PRAYER-CLOSET! Jesus taught us to pray for our “daily bread” (Luke 11:3). As much as we need physical bread we need spiritual bread, don’t we? Don’t we need it daily?

    The fifth challenge for daily Bible reading comes from the HOUSE!

    The believers of Berea, went HOME and checked up the Word of God daily (Acts 17:11). Why? They wanted to check if the spoken Word of God preached by the apostles was according to what was written Word of God!

    If we read three chapters of the Bible on weekdays (Monday through Friday) and four chapters in the weekend (Saturday and Sunday), we can complete reading the full Bible in a single year! Why not try that this year?!

    (Dr. Duke Jeyaraj, the author, finished his B. Tech. in SHUATS in 1997 and a Doctor of Ministry in SABC in 2014. He founded Grabbing the Google Generation from Gehenna Mission in 2006.

    Our New Year, may not be pain-free, but it can be weight gain free and wine free.

    Our New Year may not be problem-free. But it can be porn-free. In the New Year we may not gain all of the world's wealth. But we can choose to say bye to filth. The Lord will give us this type of freedom that brings joy. And we too need to show some resolve like Jesus. Jesus 'resolved' to march toward Jerusalem to be crucified (Luke 9:51). Let's take efforts to imitate him! There are those that teach that Christianity is effortless and that we must not take any effort to be godly or to grow in holiness. That is a wrong teaching from the hyper-grace cult camp. Listen to this for further clarification: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DQ3hZj0t6QY ...

    Jesus used the word 'year' twice.

    “What am I going to wear TONIGHT?” - that’s a question that sometimes merits (all) our attention, perhaps.

    But what’s more important is the answer to this originally Jesus-asked question, a question which hyper-grace guys hate: “If you died TONIGHT where would you go and what will happen to the things that take all your attention now?” (Lk12:20, my version).

    PRESENTING WHAT THE BIGGEST BOOK OF THE GREATEST BOOK HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE HOTTEST TOPICS TO THE GOOGLE GENERATION & TOUCHING 'YOU' THE SMARTPHONE USER WHERE-EVER YOU ARE WITH DEEP DAILY DEVOTIONS

    PRESENTING WHAT THE BIGGEST BOOK OF THE GREATEST BOOK HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE HOTTEST TOPICS TO THE GOOGLE GENERATION & TOUCHING 'YOU' THE SMARTPHONE USER WHERE-EVER YOU ARE WITH DEEP DAILY DEVOTIONS
    Brief Annual Report of Grabbing the Google Generation from Gehenna Mission, the G4 Mission, the ministry of Duke Jeyaraj and Evangelin Duke.

    2017 was indeed a blessed year of ministry for us at Grabbing the Google Generation from Gehenna Mission. We reached out to the Google Generation through a pulpit and print ministry, through tracts-outreach and technology-enabled outreach this year.

    In the month of January 2017, Evangelin Duke preached a stirring message “Tonight Can Be Your Miracle Night” from the life of King Hezekiah to fasting believers of the New Life AG Church, Hyderabad, following Rev. Younus Samuel's invitiation. Believers were encouraged. Duke, on Sunday afternoons, of this month, taught believers of New Life AG Church, Hyderabad. He summarised Wisdom Literature books of the Old Testament using his trade-mark acronym style.

    In the month of February 2017, Duke Jeyaraj shared a Bible Study titled “The Longest Book On The Hottest Topics”. It was a study on what the longest Bible book in terms of words, the book of Jeremiah, had to teach about topics such as sex, love and marriage and such hot topics. People from the Corporate world (including Microsoft) were there. Ashwin Emmanuel hosted this study in his 22nd floor flat in Mantri Celestia in Gachibowli, Hyderabad. Corporate folk were edified.

    In the month of March 2017, the entire Duke Jeyaraj family was in the country of Oman following the invitation of Uncle D. Stanley. Another video uploaded on Duke’s YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/visitduke (which crossed over 3 lakh hits this year) was recorded there! The YouTube Generation were touched. This month, the official magazine of Center for Global Leadership Development (SABC) published Duke’s article, Walking In The Spirit To Beat Sexual Temptation. In the same month, Duke was invited by Pas. Peter Samuel to preach to the youth of the Bethel Church in Chanda Nagar, Hyderabad. Duke did a Q and A message on Relationships. Duke was invited back by the same church, twice this year - once to preach to the corporate pros of this church and a another time to preach to the youth of the church. Duke spoke on the perils of smartphone addiction from a biblical standpoint. The response to the altar call given was encouraging.

    In the month of April 2017, along with G4 Mission volunteers, Duke Jeyaraj gave out tracts to spectators who came to watch a IPL Match in Hyderabad. This was just one of the different places that Duke and his team gave out the Bubbly/Dhoni tract this year. This year we also updated and republished the Dhoni wala tract (all-color now). Ravi Alamothu our volunteer who works with HSBC Bangalore was the deft designer. Gospel seeds were sown among the totally unevangelised. This was the month, Duke address over a 100 medical college students in a day-long retreat in Guntur. It was a sight of sore eyes, to see medical college students come forward, kneel down and give their lives to Jesus following one of the altar calls. Dr. Murali and Dr. Christy-Dr.Ramya warmly invited Duke for this program.

    In the month of May 2017, Evangelin Duke preached a devotion from the book of Job to the alumni of Voohrees College in Yelagiri Hills, Tamil Nadu. Duke Jeyaraj and Evangelin Duke preached God’s Word in the Kozhikode AG following an invitation from South India Assemblies of God General Superintendent, Rev. Dr. V. T. Abraham. In the same month, Duke was invited to preach by Rev. Stanley Manickaraj, the senior pastor of the Vellore-6 AG Church in Vellore. Duke’s message from the book of Amos on being a courageous witness blessed the believers. Believers were strengthened. Evangelin Duke, in the month of May, preached in a CSI Church in Vellore. Our ministry remains inter-denominational.

    In the month of June 2017, Duke Jeyaraj dispatched The Days of Your Youth magazine, with the lead article from the life of Mordecai, If Mordecai Was In Shanghai. This magazine also had Duke’s article that presented one more reason to say ‘no’ to porn-watching (from the works of non-believers!). Eugene Pandian, Duke’s college contemporary’s design work for this mag was elegant. Bible Truth was creatively presented in print! The Dukes were in Sunabeda Public School in Odisha for special meetings for youth, women and church believers following an invitation from uncle Ashok Ambrose. The scenes at the altar was moving. Believers were revived. In this month, Duke travelled to the Rajahmandry area of Andhra Pradesh following Pastor Vara Prasad Yadav’s invitation to minister to over 1000 believers.

    Following Gershom Arul’s invitation, in the month of July 2017, Duke Jeyaraj published a devotion for YouVersion, one of the most popular Bible apps available for smartphone/tab users, on the topic of sexting. Over 190,000 people have read Duke’s Bible Devotions, potentially, on this app over the years. World-over, believers who use Gadgets were touched in some way. By the year-end, Duke converted some of his text-only Bible devotion plans with YouVersion to audio. His most-recent YouVersion Bible Devotion plan is this: Beating Sexual Temptation: The Bible Way Practically Explained.

    In the month of August 2017, Duke Jeyaraj ministered in the Good Samaritan Fellowship Church in Madurai in Malini akka’s (Mrs. Malini Prabakar’s) concert and in the Sunday Services. One of his messages were titled, “False Teachers So Dangerous That Were Named In The New Testament And Their Resemblance To Today’s False Teachers!” Duke also preached in the Metropolitan Mission, Vijayawada’s Church Believers Retreat in the same month. Church Believers were warned against dangerous false doctrines like the hyper-grace cult false doctrine. The board of G4 Mission also met this month. Mission accounts were submitted. Before the year-end, accounts were audited and submitted to the Government. We also received the acknowledgement from the Government. Duke is also part of a peer accountability WhatsApp group which met twice this year. This group (with mostly pastors, evangelists and Bible scholars involved in the English ministry in Chennai) serves as a check for Duke and he is grateful.

    In the month of September 2017 Duke Jeyaraj preached in the AG Church in Goa led by Rev. Stephen Mendes. Duke’s message on Come-What-May Commitment was one of his finest messages for church believers (according to his best critic, his dear wife, Evangelin Duke). Duke also preached a missionary challenge message titled, “How Every Major Doctrine of the Bible is A Missionary Call” to believers of Hyderabad in the 2017 New Life AG Mission Conference in Secunderabad. Duke Jeyaraj serves as an honorary member of this church’s mission committee, following Senior Founding Pastor Sis. Arlene Stubbs’ invitation. Believers were challenged to make their one life count! In the same month, Duke and Evan ministered in the city of Hubli in Karnataka. Bro. Anand of SFJ Foundation organised the meetings. A few hundred school students heard the Gospel presented clearly to them, wrapped around a motivational-talk. A clip from Duke’s message this month titled, “Why Porn-Watching Is Sin? Duke Jeyaraj answers in less than a minute” was went viral via WhatsApp. Deborah Wesley, a young mom living in Bangalore, was our WhatsApp content volunteer this year. Our ministry runs because of faithful volunteers like these.

    In the month of October 2017, Duke Jeyaraj continued his once-in-two-months Bible Study in the centrally-located-in-Hyderabad flat of Daniel-Magdalene in Somajiguda. He taught the doctrine of Salvation against the backdrop of the story of the Protestant Reformation (which was celebrating its 500th anniversary on 31 October 2017). Duke preached from the life of Martin Luther to a church audience led by Pas Samson in Bolarum, Secunderabad, in the same month. Lessons from history were used as an inspiration for revival! In this month, Duke preached to believers of different CSI churches in Hyderabad on the topic of missions following Rev. Jothiraj’s invitation. In the month of October Duke Jeyaraj wrote an article that called believer youth to marry believers from Genesis 34 (the story of Dinah rape). This article started off with the Christian-Hindu marriage of movie stars Samantha-Naga Chaitanya. This article which was uploaded onto Duke’s Facebook Ministry page (www.facebook.com/googleduke ) saw over 10,000 hits. By this month, all the printed copies of Duke’s popular book, No Beating About The Bush Straight Talk, were sold-out. Earlier this year, Duke’s book of Gospel messages, The Goodnews for the Google Generation, was also fully sold-out. We need to reprint both these books and Duke is exploring various options, including the option of publishing it with a Christian Publisher after updation.

    In the month of November 2017, Duke Jeyaraj wrote articles for AIM Magazine, published by Evangelical Fellowship of India, New Delhi, and Light of Life Magazine, Mumbai, on the topic of Blue Whale Suicides. Uncle R. Stanley gave Duke the idea to write this article. The Goodnews was shared in print form wrapped around a burning issue Jesus-style (Luke 13:1-5) and Paul style (Acts 17). In the month of November, Duke preached in a USA-Send-off Prayer Meeting a message titled, “How An Indian Can Glorify God In America: The Bible Answer Put In Acronym A-M-E-R-I-C-A”. This event was telecast Facebook Live. The online audience was several times bigger than the live audience!! A Facebook video clip of Duke hitting the poisonous hyper-grace teaching from 2 Timothy uploaded this month saw over 850 views (The live audience was less than 30!).

    In the month of December 2017, Duke Jeyaraj preached in two Medical College Christmas Gospel programs in Eluru and Khammam. Around 800 medical college students heard an uncompromising presentation of the Gospel wrapped around contemporary events of interest. Some prayed the sinner’s prayer with Duke at the end of the message. You can listen to his message now in Duke’s SoundCloud channel here: https://soundcloud.com/shoutaloud/arjunreddygoodnewsdukejeyaraj. Duke’s SoundCloud Channel, www.soundcloud.com/shoutaloud crossed 75,000 hits this year. In the month of December, from the 1st till the 21st, Duke wrote twitter/facebook devotion for the Google Generation with a Christmas theme. He did another Twitter/Facebook daily devotion from October 1-31, 2017, on the topic of the Protestant Reformation.

    At the year ends, the next issue of our magazine, The Days of Your Youth is almost ready to go to the press (text work completed). We thank God for volunteers who do text editing like Percy John, Lima Eugene, Dale Duke, Deborah Wesley, Stephen Jothiraj, and Hepsibah Paul.It is rare to find ministry volunteers for a small-size, no-exposure-to-a-big-platform-stage ministry like ours, but God always provides us with such volunteers, year after year!

    These programs/activities are just high-lights from the ministry of Grabbing the Google Generation from Gehenna Mission which Duke and Evan founded in the year 2006. Other ministries like counseling young married couples in crisis, confused-about-life-partner choice, struggling-with-sexual-sin singles from the corporate world were carried out by Evangelin Duke and Duke Jeyaraj during this year. Duke also preached in small house fellowships in Gachibowli, Secunderabad, Goa, Chennai and Vellore this year. Here is one topic he chose to speak on in these house fellowship: When Jesus Used Exaggeration To Drive Home Spiritual Lessons (Listen to it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4q74Yx0pvqM ).

    We thank God for each person who sent us an offering this year. These folk are Indians blessed by Duke’s ministry moved by the Holy Spirit. We thank God for gadgets/goods we received through the giving of God’s people this year. A large screen TV which serves to display prayer points and songs in the Fountain of Tears Against Mountain of Fears Fasting Prayer at our home/base is one such addition as is a Blackberry Passport Smartphone.

    Even this year, we continued to give from what we received to our local church and the larger organization it represents regularly. We also gave to other servants of God whose ministries we are led to bless.

    When Paul & Luke and 274 others were caught in shipwreck, “they prayed for daylight” (Acts 27:29).

    They were in a desperate situation. Daylight did arrive. And they were safely reached the shore(Acts 27:44). In your night of desperation in the ship you are travelling called life do not forget to pray!

    What is practical Christianity?

    Treating the rich and poor (the one finely dressed and the one shabbily dressed) with equal dignified respect and offering them both same types of seats to recline (James 2:2,3).

    Revelation 12 was in the news this year with folks making a frenzied prediction about what will happen on Sept 23, 2017, based on a bizarre interpretation of that passage. Nothing happened. The only prediction that should interest us in any way today is found in the Bible in black and white: Jesus is returning to this earth as a judge in a physical and actual way. All the rest of the predictions folks make ("There will be a temple built in Jerusalem....."/"There will be an earthquake here...."/ "This Spiritual Leader will die and then this will happen....", etc) deserve a "total ignoring" from people who know the Bible and how it should be properly interpreted. Coming back to Revelation 12. In a way, Revelation 12 is Christmas from Heaven's perspective. Listen to this message. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_07YffDVS4

    THE HOLLYWOOD 2017 MOVIE WONDER AND CHRISTMAS’ WONDERFUL COUNSELLOR - Dr.

    THE HOLLYWOOD 2017 MOVIE WONDER AND CHRISTMAS’ WONDERFUL COUNSELLOR - Dr. Duke Jeyaraj

    The 2017 movie Wonder is a “Drama directed by Stephen Chbosky which centers on August “Auggie” Pullman (Jacob Tremblay) a young boy born with a facial difference (he has a face that startles people) who has been in and out of hospitals for years. With the help of his mother, Isabel (Julia Roberts) and his father, Nate (Owen Wilson), he tries to fit in at a new school named Beecher Prep and shows everyone that he is just an ordinary kid, no different than the rest of the world.” (from moviequotesandmore.com). This movie, released on November 17, 2017, still runs in the theatres, as I write this article on Christmas eve. 93% of the folks who watched this movie, have liked it according to Google.

    Here is an unforgettable line from that movie:
    Jack Will: Have you ever thought about having plastic surgery?

    Auggie Pullman: Dude, this is after plastic surgery. It takes a lot of work to look this good.
    Elsewhere Auggie Pullman says, “I know I’m not an ordinary kind of a kid, I’ve had twenty-seven surgeries. They help me to breathe, to see, to hear without a hearing aid, but none of them have me look ordinary” (moviequotesandmore.com, the source of these quotes).

    Despite twenty-seven surgeries, Auggie’s face could not be transformed into a normal, ‘non-scary’ kind of human face!

    Like Auggie, we have a disfiguration. May be, not in the face, but spiritually speaking, we all have disfiguration. Confused? Stumped? We have all been disfigured by sin. The Bible, God’s Word in human words, says, “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). And as a result of sin these things happen: “joy from our hearts is gone, utterly gone….we are sick at heart, about it all”(Lamentations 5:15-17, The Bible). In other words, we may be bubbly on the outside, yet are empty on the inside!

    In the rest of this piece I will connect the story of Auggie Pullman presented by the 2017 Hollywood Movie, Wonder with the “Wonderful Counsellor” – one of the names of Jesus found in a Christmas Prophecy passage in the Bible (Isaiah 9:6)!

    Like it happened in the case of Auggie we try different ways to get this disfiguration caused by sin to go. Some would sacrifice an animal and wish that would make our sin disfiguration go perhaps. The Bible declares, “It is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins” (Hebrews 10:4). Still others would try to live a good moral life to take away disfiguration of sin. Living a good moral life is good, but that will take away sin from our life or save our soul.

    The Bible teaches that our righteous acts are like filthy rags before the holy, holy, holy God and will not make the sin disfiguration go (Isaiah 6:3; 64:6). What about travelling to some holy place? Will that help when it comes to getting rid of the sin disfiguration? Nope. God who made us says this to us via Jeremiah 7:10 in the Bible: Do you think all it takes is for you to run back to Me in this house, which is called by My name, and say, ‘We’re safe now’? (The Voice). While going to church is good, church attendance will not ensure that your sins are forgiven and that you are saved.

    So, what is the solution for this problem of spiritual disfiguration because of sin? The God who made you and me, decided to become flesh and bone, so that his face could be disfigured. From the disfigured face, there is a solution for our spiritual disfiguration. That’s the Christmas message. That’s what the Bible teaches.
    God Eternal entered the womb of Mary during the first Christmas day, two millennia back. He said, “Give me a body!” (See Hebrews 10:5 in the Bible). And He was given one! He started floating in the amniotic fluids of virgin Mary. He was born as a baby. He grew up. He did miracles. He never sinned even once – the only one to have such an impeccable record. He fulfilled 110 major prophecies the Bible’s Old Testament made about him – no one has beaten this record too! He was crucified on a Cross on a hill. Now get this, friend: You could not crucify someone without a body! That’s why Jesus, God in flesh, had to take up a body! That’s why we have a Christmas – God taking on flesh and blood!

    And when he hung on the Cross, Jesus’ face was disfigured. The Bible says, when Jesus hung on the Cross, “there is no beauty that we should desire him” (Isaiah 53:2). This is what happened when Jesus hung on the Cross: “There was nothing attractive about him, nothing to cause us to take a second look. He was looked down on and passed over, a man who suffered, who knew pain firsthand. One look at him and people turned away. We looked down on him, thought he was scum. But the fact is, it was our pains he carried— our disfigurements, all the things wrong with us. We thought he brought it on himself, that God was punishing him for his own failures. But it was our sins that did that to him, that ripped and tore and crushed him—our sins! He took the punishment, and that made us whole” (Isaiah 53:2-5, The Message). Yes, he became disfigured so that we will have an opportunity to have our spiritual face figuration due to sin, removed! Yes, Jesus went to the Cross, so that we can be forgiven of our sin and so that we might have true peace!

    Jesus rose from the Dead. He ascended into heaven. He is seated at the right hand of His Father. And he will come back one day, as a Judge. Those who turn from sin and put their faith in Jesus who claimed to be only way will have their sins forgiven. Their spiritual disfiguration will go! They will have purpose and meaning in life. I can vouch for this, because, this has happened to me! But those who firmly and finally reject Jesus, will experience a living hell and go to a literal hell, a place that the Bible calls, “lake of fire” where there is “weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Revelation 21:7-8; Matthew 13:42).

    Today, will you not turn from sin and put your faith in Jesus? You don’t have to be a spiritual Auggie – live with sin’s disfiguration (There is nothing wrong in having a face like Auggie by the way, literally speaking – don’t get me wrong)! You can live with the joy, peace, purpose which Jesus alone gives as you have living, daily relationship with him, turning away from sin!

    “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14).

    He will be called “Immanuel: God with us”(Math. 1:23). “DWELT AMONG US”/“GOD WITH US”: think of those words! What is Christmas? It is about God checking into our neighbourhood. What do neighbours do for us? They, at best, receive Amazon packages for us when we are out! But this none-like-Him “neighbour” is AMAZING - He is the AMAZING God in flesh. Our neighbours may misunderstand us. But no one understands us like this none-like-Him “neighbour”! “He had to become as human as His sisters and brothers so that when the time came, He became a merciful and faithful high priest high priest of God, called to reconcile a sinful people”(Heb. 2:17, The Voice). ...
