Welcome To BARAH MINISTRIES
a Christian Church
For this reason (because the grace of God was given to me to preach) I (Paul) bow my knees (in prayer) before (God) the Father,//from whom every family in heaven (angels) and on earth (humans) derives its name,//that He (God the Father) would grant you (personally), according to the riches of His glory (out of His glorious riches), to be strengthened with (living, enabling) power through (God) His (Holy) Spirit indwelling the inner man (innermost being)…
…so that Christ may dwell (and feel at home) in your hearts through (your) faith; and that you, being rooted (like a plant) and grounded (with a firm foundation) in (unconditional) love,//may be able to
comprehend with all the saints (believers in Christ) what is the breadth (wide) and length (long) and height (high) and depth (deep nature of unconditional love),//and to know the (unconditional) love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up (pleroo) to all the fullness (pleroma) of God (the Father).
Because the grace of God was given to me to preach, I, Paul bow my knees in prayer before God the Father,//by whom every family in heaven and on earth, both angels and humans, are named,//that God the Father would grant that you personally, out of His glorious riches, would be strengthened with His living and enabling power through God the Holy Spirit who is indwelling your innermost being…
…so that Christ might feel at home in your hearts because of your faith; and that you, being rooted by God like a plant and grounded by God with His firm foundation, unconditional love,//may be able to comprehend, you and all the believers in Christ, how wide and long and high and deep is the nature of His unconditional love,//and to know for certain, through this unconditional love of Christ, which is way better than just biblical knowledge, that your deficiencies are completely covered by all the fullness of God the Father.

The Bible in a Nutshell
An Introduction to Sixty-Six of the Greatest Books Ever Written
“In My Father’s house are many dwelling places (mansions); if it were not so, I (the Lord Jesus Christ) would have told you; for I go (to My Father’s house) to prepare a place for you.”
“If (1) I go and prepare a place for you (and I do), I (the Lord Jesus Christ) will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.”
“And you know the way where I (the Lord Jesus Christ) am going (I have been teaching you).”
Thomas said to Him, “Lord (indicating His knowledge that Jesus is God), we do not know where You are going, how (by what means) do we (come to) know the way?”
Jesus said to him (Thomas), “I (the Lord Jesus Christ) am the way (to salvation), and I (the Lord Jesus Christ am) the truth (through the Word of God), and I (the Lord Jesus Christ am) the (Zoe) life (the resurrection life); no one comes to (God) the Father but through (believing in) Me.
And do not get drunk (being fully influenced) with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled (fully influenced by God) with (by means of) the (indwelling) Spirit…
All Bow Down
When I Think About Home
Therefore if (1) anyone is in (union with) Christ (and all believers in Christ are), he is a new creature (a new spiritual species); the (sovereignty of the) old (self) things (have) passed away (have lost their power); behold, new (spiritual species) things have come.
And the Word (God the Son) became flesh (Jesus Christ), and dwelt (tabernacled) among us, and we saw (beheld) His glory, glory as of the only begotten (uniquely born One) from (God) the Father, full of grace and (full of) truth.
