Oh Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love Him, and to them that keep His
commandments. We are unworthy to approach Thy Throne of Grace by our own righteousness, except by the Blood of Thy Son Jesus
Christ, our Lord. We are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousness are as filthy rags and we all do fade as a leaf;
and our iniquities like the wind have taken us away.We have sinned, and have
committed iniquity, and have done wickedly, and have rebelled against Thee, by departing from Thy commandments. O Lord, our
sins and iniquities testify against us. Our iniquities have separated us from Thee, and our sins have hidden Thy face from
Neither have we obeyed
the voice of the Lord our God to walk in His ways and to follow His commandment of loving and serving God with our whole heart
and with all our soul. Nor have we loved our neighbours as ourselves as we have failed to minister to the strangers, the poor,
the orphans and widows. Nor have we loved our brethren in Christ thereby abiding in darkness in that we have failed to minister
to the poor saints and to the missionaries in various mission fields. We have gloried in the spiritual gifts given to us by
Thee, and have not gloried in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have become arrogant with our eyes being blinded by our
Because of our backslidings,
all the evil has come upon us, Thou hast sent a drought in the place of rain. Our churches have become desolate, and our adversary
has trodden down many vineyards. The children of God have gone into captivity before the enemy. O God, we weep, our eyes runneth
down with water; we spread forth our hands and there is none to comfort us. We are in distress. The joy of our heart has ceased;
our dance is turned into mourning. The crown is fallen from our head; woe unto us, that we have sinned! Remember, O Lord,
what is come upon us, consider and behold our reproach. Thou hast afflicted us for the multitude of our transgressions, and
Thy judgments are righteous.
O Lord, we have a name that we live but are dead. We have become wretched, and
miserable and poor and blind and naked.
Wilt Thou not revive us
again that Thy people may rejoice in Thee! O Lord, revive the dry bones and breathe Thy life into us so that we may live again
for Thy glory ? Restore Thy Church to its original glory and power. Unless Thou sendest us the latter rain, we will
perish in the wilderness; our churches will become extinct; our nation will be lost.
O Lord, we beseech Thee to make bright clouds and send us showers of rain so that
our wilderness will turn into a pool of water.
O Lord, we are desperately in need of showers of rain upon our land. Thousands
of souls whom we have failed to reach with Thy glorious gospel are descending into the bottomless pit. Unless Thou sendest
a revival to our nation, it will go the way of prediction by violence and civil wars as many nations have already plunged
into this snare.
O Lord, there are many mountains in our land which we could not reach out with
Thy glorious gospel. O Lord, send a revival to the valleys of dry bones in these mountains. Oh that Thou wouldest rend the
heavens, that Thou wouldest come down, that these mountains might flow down at the Thy presence.
O Lord, revive Thy work in the midst of the years; restore us the years that
we lost due to laziness or slumber in evangelism, by way of a Heaven-sent revival. Let our heart be turned to follow the footsteps
of our fathers on whose blood the Church was founded.
In Jesus Holy Name, we pray. Amen
GNANAMANI AMMAL, A BLESSED WOMAN OF GOD
These days, we ascribe blessedness
to possession of material possessions or material prosperity. Many of us tend to believe that poverty is a curse from God.
Please read the biography of a great woman of God, an ordinary South Indian homemaker with six girls and one son. She lived
and died for Christ. The Lord had given her many visions and revelations, which are prophetic in nature. These are a great
source of blessings to the universal body of Christ. Her name was Gnanamani Ammal.
She and her family glorified and praised God when they had no food to eat, and especially when they had not tasted any good
food for five years. She glorified God when her husband passed away and when her children were young. She glorified God when
God took her four daughters (one married daughter, two spinster daughters, and one younger daughter aged 2 years to glory.

CAN YOU SEE A SMALL CLOUD IN YOUR LIFE?
Will you please meditate on I Kings 18:41-48? The Lord has a message for you. In the days of Elijah,
the prophet and Ahab, the King of Israel, there was a drought in the land of Israel. Similarly, you may be facing a spiritual
drought in your life or ministry. Go up, eat and drink, for
there is the sound of abundance of rain, Elijah tells Ahab. Ahab, accordingly,
went up to eat and drink. Elijah went up to the top of Carmel, bowed down on
the ground and put his face between his knees. Elijah said to his servant, Go up now, look toward the
Then it came to pass the SEVENTH
TIME that the servant said, There is a cloud, as small as a mans hand, rising out of the sea. So Elijah said, Go up, say to Ahab, Prepare your chariot and go down before
the rain stops you.
Now it happened, in the mean
time that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain.
Dear child of God, you would
have sought the intercessory prayers of some minister of God for a miracle in your life.
Since you have experienced no miracle, you have now become disheartened. Six
times you have seen nothing. Now the SEVENTH TIME has arrived in your life, and
you are hearing a small voice Go again. As you read this message, you can see a small cloud, as small as a mans hand. You can now see a little evidence of the ensuing great blessing upon your life. With this small cloud, you should now trust God and be happy. There will be a sudden outpouring of His blessing in your life. Dear minister of God, there will be a great
outpouring of His anointing on your ministry in a manner never imagined by you. The God of Elijah is alive today to perform
the same miracle for you. Amen.
ABOUT THE BOOK "THE VOICE OFMY BELOVED"
The Song of Solomon is the most fascinating and comforting book of the Bible
meant for the backsliding Church, the Bride of Christ, that is the comfortless, disheartened and desperate disciples of Christ
who have been either lost in the wilderness of sinful pleasures or trapped in the snares of the cunning Devil.
Three books Solomon wrote. The first book Proverbs was written by him out of the God-given wisdom. The
second book Ecclesiastes was written by him not merely out of his wisdom but out of his experiences of backsliding in that he loved many strange
women (I King 11.1) and thus found himself landing in the vanity of this world. Solomon,
depicting his romantic episode with the Shulamite, a shepherd girl, wrote the third book Song of Songs so as to assure the backsliding
children of God forgiveness of sins and restoration of soul by His long suffering and abundant mercy.
This book having some special features is shrouded with the secrets of God and reveals in a mysterious
way the unfathomable and incomprehensible love of Christ for His bride. The unique
feature is that Christ reveals His eternal love individually and personally toward His elect.
This wonderful book embodying love, also called as
the love-letter of Jesus to His bride precedes the prophetic books of the Bible, which mostly bristle with words of judgment against
the backsliding children of God. Strangely enough, the Song of Songs has no words
of judgment or accusation. The absence of the word sin would catch the eye here unlike the other
biblical books. Without this unique book, the Holy Bible would truly lack in
something spectacular and majestic. This wonderful book of the Bible unfolds
the marvelous and unique Personality of Christ Jesus, and the peculiar personality of His bride as viewed by Him. The divine
Author devotes more of this book to describe the beauty and the peculiar personality of His bride than about Christ, the Bridegroom. This shows His great concern for His Body, the Church.
The Song of Solomon constantly exhorts the backsliding
children of God to rise up and come away whatever be the present circumstances or the past life. This
book unfolds the incomprehensible love of Christ for His elect the sheltering love which covers the multitude of sins; the
sublime love which blinds the holy eye of the Bridegroom to the wretchedness and unworthiness of His beloved; the flaming
love which cannot be quenched by many waters; the lofty love which cannot be drowned by the floods, the precious love which cannot be valued in mere monetary
This book enriched in its superb poetic contents would
mean a great deal to a poet seated in the Darbar (court-room) of the King of Kings and would, if rightly interpreted,
prove to be rather unparalleled by any other poetic book of this world, ever written.
Oh, hardly had I touched a string of this heavenly Vina (an Indian stringed musical instrument) as a novice
when I heard the sweet voice of my Beloved! Will you please come apart, whatever
be the mundane business you are engrossed in, so as to be alone with your Beloved, and play the role of the Shulamite in this
divine drama, not as a worldly stage actor, but as a true bride of Christ?
The blessed Holy Spirit inspired, taught, and guided
me in writing this book during a long period of almost 15 years from 1986 to 2001. The
Lord taught me practically out of my own life in interpreting the Song of Songs. Today
this book has fallen into your hands not by mere coincidence but by His providence because God has a message for you. As you read and meditate on this book, your personal life may surely undergo a tremendous
change, and God will mightily use your ministry in a manner beyond your own imagination. You need a tranquil environment and
a lot of patience in comprehending what the Lord wants to convey you through these pages. There are 8 chapters in the Song
of Songs. Each chapter is interpreted in sequence under various sub-titles.
