Zechariah 4:10
For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

There is this saying in Israel:-

  • "Whoever destroys a soul, it is considered as if he destroyed an entire world. And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world."

- Babylonian Talmud Tractate Sanhedrin 37a


Find the one person in this world that God has ordained for you to help.  Whether you succeed or not is completely another matter.  The important thing is that at least you have tried.   Most of the time, you do not have to look too far.  Most of the time, the person is one of the member of your own family.   

Find that one person that you are supposed to save or reconcile with and be contented. 

Your father

Your mother

Your son

Your daughter

Your brother

Your sister

Your cousin

Your relative

Your grandmother

Your grandfather

Your grandson

Your granddaughter

Or for those without family ……………a friend or a stranger that was put on your path by the Lord.


Pleasantville (1998 motion picture)

A husband defending the honour of his wife; a mother saving her child or in Pleasantville David’s case, he was defending the honour of his Pleasantville mother from bullies.  The deed that completed him or perfected him that turned him into colour.  

* In David's twin sister Jennifer's case, she turned into colour after she found contentment at home.  Jennifer was perfected when she found peace at home.

Back to where she came from, Jennifer was discontented with her parents and she was struggling to find acceptance in society and at school.  

2 Corinthians 13:9
For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection.

Psalms 37:37
Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.

“Perfect” according to Oxford dictionary:-

- having all the required elements, qualities or characteristics
- free from any flaw, faultless
- complete or absolute
- bring to completion

Before the event that turned David into colour, David was being honoured a town hero for putting out a burning tree and filling up the library with books that he has read before or indirectly helping his friends find colour in their lives, but David was still in black and white when all his friends had turned into colour. 

At the beginning of the movie, back home where David came from, he came from a divorced family.  His own father did not want to take care of him even when he was supposed to live with his dad for one week every month.  Feeling a little disappointment for his own parents, David diverted himself to watching television.  Perhaps he chose to ignore his own mother and found some comfort when he escaped into the TV episodes of Pleasantville. 

David needed to go through all the episodes or happenings at Pleasantville before he realised that his mother needed him. 
Whether be it small talk or serious talk, taking the effort to spend time together will do a world of difference to the one in need.  

At the end of the movie, David uses the remote control to go home and there he found his mother crying alone at the dining table.   He sat down probably for the first time having small talk with his mother and wiped away her tears. 

Revelation 21:4
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

(Movie transcript excerpt)

You know, when your father was here I thought well this is it. It's always gonna be like this. I have the right house and the right car and the right life.....

There is no right house. There is no right car...


It's not supposed to be anything. Hold still for a second.

(He continues to clean his mother's face as she looks at him with a strange new expression.)

How'd you get so smart all of a sudden?


Yesterday, I found the reason why I was still in “black & white”.   

I kept searching for a reason to live that was right in front of me. 

I am to protect my mother and to defend my parents’ honour.    

In witnessing, I hope also to be able to defend the honour of Adam and Eve at the same time.  

The pain and suffering that they had to endure.  Their names had been dragged through the mud by people who did not know them personally.  False stories that tell of Eve after the fall became a terrible evil witch.   All these lies have to end.

Most of the time, people everywhere and from any period of time, have a tendency to form opinions and judgements on people that they hardly know or do not know personally at all.
This is what psychology and theology are all about, is it not?

Throughout the centuries, direct relationship with the LORD and family life have turned into schools of thought or today so called Theological Seminaries, having evolved into a bunch of people sitting in their own little thrones of judgement and appointing themselves as leaders of churches, so on and so forth.  These apostates create their own ideas, doctrines and books; and they use their own doctrines to teach and enforce upon the unsuspecting masses.

1 Timothy 4

New King James Version (NKJV)
The Great Apostasy
"4 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, 3 forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving; 5 for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer."

Did the first leader of Israel, Moses attended any Theological Seminary?  Moses was appointed by the LORD Most High.
Prophets and Church leaders cannot be self appointed or appointed by peers.  What is worse is when many so-called prophets and church leaders are appointed by "deceiving spirits" and hence they teach the doctrine of demons. 

Prophets and Church leaders must be called by the LORD.  

We get all hyped up about examining and studying the human mind or the nature of GOD, when most of the time, we do not even have a clue about ourselves.  Live! and you will learn. 

Like the Greeks used to say, "Know Thyself" ! 


If you read the Bible, God never asked us to be Superman.  Life was suppose to be easy.   The LORD never demanded that we work to our bones to save ourselves or to serve others in such manner.   You can fly all over the world to save as many people or animals or plants as possible but if you choose to ignore the people closest to you or the people you love, what good is there in that?    

Does it profit me if I am able to travel at the speed of light or speed of thought but I am not able to hold on to the one I love?   

What profit is there for me if I am able to save billions of people but lost the one who loves me and means the most to me? 

While there are good points in being competitive as it pushes us forward and to innovate, but when it becomes an obsession and starts to destroy our surrounding and the people we love, it is time to stop. 

If you really want to save the whole world, nobody is stopping you.  Try not do it at the expense of your loved ones.

Mark 8:34
And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Mark 8:35
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it.

Mark 8:36
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

Mark 8:37
Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Mark 8:38
Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.


Matthew 15:24
But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

The LORD Most High creator of the heavens and the earth came to us as Jesus of Nazareth to defend, save and died for His own people IsraelJesus died for Israel alone.  HIS blood poured out was for making a New Covenant with the Children of Israel to replace the covenant HE made with Moses and the Children of Israel.  
** (The LORD did not come to renew the covenants HE made with the Gentiles / Noah which still stands until today.)    

In the process, His story reached around the world and saved many Gentiles as well, those who walked as He walked, in faith.   Gentiles need only believe and have faith just as Abraham had faith and it counted him a righteous man.  

***  Jesus of Nazareth, the LORD Most High came to save Israel having died for just one person, and in the process it is considered as if HE has saved the entire world.

Ephesians 2:8
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Ephesians 2:9
Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Ephesians 2:10
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
These two verses in Ephesians "......saved through faith ...........not of works........." have caused much confusion among "Christians" of what is basically very simple.  

The word "works" mentioned in Ephesians 2:9 are of a wide angle covering all types of works and it could be referring to rituals, sacrifices, carrying out of commandments, hours worked and even good works. 

As a result, many "Christians" actually think that they do NOT have to "DO anything" in order to be saved.  Which brings us to Ephesians 2:10, if we are saved, we would naturally be able to walk in the path of Christ Jesus unto good works.  

In short, you are not saved based on what you do, but you are able do all things unto Christ because you are saved.  The LORD Most High will not measure your salvation based on what you did or are able to do.  

A Father does all He can to save his children because they are his children and not based on what they are capable of doing.  One of his children maybe a rich great inventor and businessman or a Church pastor, while another maybe just a simple shepherd boy and yet a Father's perfect love is equal for all his children.  But if the rich businessman plans to overthrow his father and plan to take all that belongs to his father and his brothers inheritance; then a father has the right to judge his wayward child according to the greatness of his mercy or wrath.       
The Bible said that Jesus of Nazareth died for the whole world.  It was only meant as a blanket offer of salvation through faith for all human beings.  You must read the whole Bible in order to see the whole meaning.    

(for example, you go to a supermarket and they have this sign that says, “FREE $100 GIFT VOUCHER”.  Do you think that every single person that walks through that door will get that free $100 voucher?  You will start to ask questions and read the fine lines. The terms and conditions notes will probably say, “For every $1000 purchase, you will get one free $100 gift voucher” for a limited period of time only.)

He did not die for those individuals who hate the LORD and His ways.  

He did not die for Satan or any of the fallen angels. 

The Jews would certainly say that Jesus did not die for Adolf Hitler. 

My sister would say that she does not even want to stand in the same room with our neighbour Mrs A; to think that the sons of God had to endure to stand in the same room with Satan when Satan came to present himself before the LORD – its like forcing Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu to stand in the same room with Adolf Hitler.  

Job 2:1
Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.

What does all this mean? 

All people will stand before the LORD Most High and as our Heavenly Father, He has every right to reward or punish you because He created you.  Just as your earthly father has every right to reward or punish his children.  

The LORD Most High does not look at you based on what religion you associate yourself with.  Religions are self-made or man-made club or prison that you impose upon yourself.  The LORD Most High looks at you as a human being and whether you are a child of God or a child of Satan.  Just as your father looks at you as his child and not the school or club that you have affiliated yourself with.  

You are your father’s son and not a son of club XYZ.  But if you betray your father and take club XYZ in higher regard than your own father, then your father has every right to do to you as he sees fit – whether to punish you or to completely cut you off from his estate. 

Isaiah 14:15
Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

Isaiah 14:16
They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

What do you do when someone is infected with a deadly strain of virus?  Quarantine

Doctors will isolate and try to cure you before you infect others.   

An infectious person with total freedom to move about will be catastrophic to other people.  

That is why the LORD had to quarantine and strip Adam and Eve and their generations from their full potential, powers and freedom until sin is totally removed through genuine repentance and spiritual regeneration granted by the LORD Most High.   

Luke 3:38
Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.

1st John 2:2
And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for our's only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

1st John 2:3
And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

1st John 2:4
He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

1st John 2:5
But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.

1st John 2:6
He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

Hosea 1:10
Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.

Romans 8:14
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

Philippians 2:15
That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
