On Sabbath morning, after we had only been in India 3 days, we awoke to enter the pastor's locked home from his roof top. We had been instructed to leave all our belongings inside his front room for safety. After knocking, the door was opened and we entered to get something from our luggage. The unzipped bag gave me concern. I looked for my purse and camera in the top of that bag as I needed them. I found the purse but it was empty of money and camera. A very sick feeling flooded my heart. How could this be in the home of the pastor? How could it happen? The door was locked. I asked the pastor if he had taken these items to place in a safe location. He gruffly said I should have taken better care of my things. We know the home was locked for we had tried to go inside for use of the restroom. The pain over this loss was taken to Jesus. He alone could help us. I thought of the children and the widows who had given so I could share the gospel. I decided it was too heavy to bear. I took the pain to Jesus. I determined to share the gospel anyway. I knew Jesus would somehow feed my daughter and I and provide our lodging. 

I was so crushed that it took all I could do to go ahead and preach in his church that morning. I gave it to God and decided it was not the fault of the people that this happened. They still should receive spiritual food anyway. Jesus held me together but the pain was so hard to deal with. God saw it all. I have placed it into HIS hands. He provided miraculously for me to get food and dishes for the time we were serving Bapatla. I went to the bank which was a great distance to draw out funds. I knew there was nothing in the bank. I prayed all the way to the bank. What would I do to get back home if no one had given me any funds? Well, back home,  my auntie knew a lady who felt impressed to give. The money was sent to my husband, placed in the bank and was ready when I reached the bank.



What causes us to weep also makes heaven weep. The music stops there. (SEE REFERENCE BELOW)


The penalty over breaking God's 10 commandments cost the life of Jesus. The wages of sin is death. All have broken God's law and are in need of a Saviour.

When we break one, we break them all and wound the heart of our dear Jesus


    I have seen the tender love that God has for His people, and it is very great. I saw angels over the saints with their wings spread about them. Each saint had an attending angel. If the saints wept through discouragement, or were in danger, the angels that ever attended them would fly quickly upward to carry the tidings, and the angels in the city would cease to sing. Then Jesus would commission another angel to descend to encourage, watch over, and try to keep them from going out of the narrow path; but if they did not take heed to the watchful care of these angels, and would not be comforted by them, but continued to go astray, the angels would look sad and weep. They would bear the tidings upward, and all the angels in the city would weep, and then with a loud voice say, "Amen." But if the saints fixed their eyes upon the prize before them, and glorified God by praising Him, then the angels would bear the glad tidings to the city, and the angels in the city would touch their golden harps and sing with a loud voice, "Alleluia!" and the heavenly arches would ring with their lovely songs. {CET 97.1} 
There is perfect order and harmony in the holy city. All the angels that are commissioned to visit the earth hold a golden card, which they present to the angels at the gates of the city as they pass in and out. Heaven is a good place.
I long to be there, and behold my lovely Jesus, who gave His life for me, and be changed into His glorious image. Oh, for language to express the glory of the bright world to come! I thirst for the living streams that make glad the city of our God. {CET 97.2} 

HOW I LONG FOR THE ONE WHO ROBBED GOD TO WAKE UP TO THE DANGER THEY ARE IN, TO REPENT, AND ASK GOD TO SAVE THEM. THE ONE WHO BROKE THE LAW IN STEALING GOD's MISSION FUNDS NEEDS A HEART CHANGE before the door of mercy is forever closed. Like Annanias and Saphira, who lied to the Holy Spirit and robbed God, they are facing God's death sentence. The thief on the cross next to Jesus cried out to Jesus for help. Jesus forgave this poor man and set him free from bondage to Satan. Achan in the Bible story also stole God's money and his whole family died with him in response to God's death penalty.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 
3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 
3:25 Whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 

GOD SEES EVERYTHING. There are no secrets from HIM.

"The stronger and purer the faith of God's people, and the firmer their determination to obey Him, the more fiercely will Satan strive to stir up against them the rage of those who, while claiming to be righteous, trample upon the law of God." AA 431
