For the past some days I am frequently getting a news that Mr.M.K.Stalin has taken over Karunya University.While going through the official site I don't find and change in the institute.Two days back a real estate guy who is non Christian said that 100% the news is true.I can not believe that unless I know that officially.
Same way people were telling this kind of rumours about another institution which I know personally and I shared the news with these kind of people and now the rumour is stopped.
Hope this is also a rumour.If you know anything about this issue please comment with the common people as the Collage was a vision given to our beloved uncle Late Dr.D.G.S.Dhinakaran.

Why don't you pray............?

I have seen people running here and there and asking some one to pray.Many a times they fail miserably.This doesn't mean that they don't have faith but most of the time we like short cut methods.Again this doesn't mean that we should not ask others to pray for us.First and foremost we have to trust the lord fully and follow his statutes.The lord has promised "Ask and you will receive."


   Some time when we are in desperate situation we may not be able to pray.That time when someone goes and pray.They will be relieved person.Many a times I have experienced this in my life.


   Sometimes our prayer is formal like addressing a manager or an officer.We should know that our lord is our father and the father is not cruel.Gently ask and things are done.


   Sometimes we blame Satan all the time for our problems but had we ever thought because of our ignorance we are into the problem.Stop the blame game and come closer to the lord.

Beware of False Prophets



Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1


But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2 Peter 2:1


For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect—if that were possible. Mark 13:22


And many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Matthew 24:11


Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. Matthew 7:15


Who foils the signs of false prophets and makes fools of diviners, who overthrows the learning of the wise and turns it into nonsense. Isaiah 44:25


This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD. Jeremiah 23:16


Then the LORD said to me, "The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I have not sent them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying to you false visions, divinations, idolatries and the delusions of their own minds. Jeremiah 14:14


The visions of your prophets were false and worthless; they did not expose your sin to ward off your captivity. The oracles they gave you were false and misleading. Lamentations 2:14


My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will not belong to the council of my people or be listed in the records of the house of Israel , nor will they enter the land of Israel . Then you will know that I am the Sovereign LORD. Ezekiel 13:9

....Unconditional Love.....


Hieee...Praise be to God alone.....
hope u all doin good....??and going so blessed.....:):)
Today i wanna share about Love....dis is the only thing we all want...and need it....and we search it here and there.....and we get nothing except hurts....bt lemme tell u itzz only our fault...we are finding love in wrong place.... Human being can never satisfy us.. Our love is not only conditional, it is also mercurial. We love based on feelings and emotions that can change from one moment to the next.....but our Lord loves us unconditionally....

Jesus defined the greatest love from a human perspective recorded in the Gospel Of John.."Greatest love has no one than this,that he lay down his life for his friends..(John-15:13) " Jesus fulfill his greatest love by dying for us so that we could be forgiven of all our sins and have fellowship wid God..."But God demonstrate his own love for us in this while we were still sinner.Christ died for us..(Rom-5:8)"This example of the extreme love of God is to apply to those who follow Jesus Christ..This is how we know what love is...."Jesus christ laid down his life for us.and we ought to lay down our Lives for our Brothers...(1 John 3:16)".....

when our Lives crashing down,No one is beside us...we are standing alone,fighting with our own emotions..Jesus wore the crown of thorns for us..he took the shame of mankind for us..he paid the ransom and sacrifice his life for us..And gave victory over....Life and Death...No matter who you have been,whoever you are,he will never leave you..Nor forsake you....

That's Called Eternal Love of God....

thus, it is clearly seen that Jesus also followed all the commandments...His love is eternal and unconditional...God is Love, and His love is very different from human love. God's love is unconditional, and it's not based on feelings or emotions. He doesn't love us because we're lovable or because we make Him feel good; He loves us because He is love. He created us to have a loving relationship with Him, and He sacrificed His own Son to restore that relationship....

...let us also learn to love unconditionally...

...Jesus Loves You....


be blessed.....
Jesus conquers all....
Peace and care....
Amen....!!!

The wicked attempt to REDEFINE God by corrupting the Bible and twisting the truth (Romans 1:25).

When you gave your life to Jesus, God didn’t just forgive you and leave you the same. He made you a new creature! Your old, death-infested, sin-enslaved nature passed away. Everything in your spirit became new. He who knew no sin was made to be sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. (II Corinthians 5:17, 21.)

Some Bible verses to spot Fake Christian!

Having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 2 Timothy 3:5
Then the Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees make the outside of the cup and dish clean, but your inward part is full of greed and wickedness. Luke 11:39
So they come to you as people do, they sit before you as My people, and they hear your words, but they do not do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their hearts pursue their own gain. 32 Indeed you are to them as a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice and can play well on an instrument; for they hear your words, but they do not do them. Ezekiel 33:31-32
From their callous hearts comes iniquity the evil conceits of their minds know no limits. Psalm 73:7
But see, there is joy and revelry, slaughtering of cattle and killing of sheep, eating of meat and drinking of wine! "Let us eat and drink," you say, "for tomorrow we die!" Isaiah 22:13
Woe to those who rise early in the morning to run after their drinks,
who stay up late at night till they are inflamed with wine. Isaiah 5:11
Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their heart is filled with destruction.
Their throat is an open grave; with their tongue they speak deceit. Psalm 5:9
Everyone lies to his neighbor; their flattering lips speak with deception. Psalm 12:2
He who leads the upright along an evil path will fall into his own trap,
but the blameless will receive a good inheritance. Proverbs 28:10
They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for a man is a slave to whatever has mastered him. 2 Peter 2:19
For they brag about their evil desires;they praise the greedy and curse the LORD. Psalm 10:3

The Act of Faith is simple

"The act of faith is simple but hard to believe/understand.”
"The act of faith is simple but hard to believe/understand.”
While I was meditating on the God's wonderful works, suddenly God gave into me this quote. I don’t know whether I heard it from somebody or not. But it was a wonderful quote.
"The act of faith is simple but hard to believe/understand.”

I started meditating on that and God gave me some thoughts.

First of all I want to distinguish between action and act of faith.

Action is considered as all the works that we do by planning ourselves to achieve a goal/need, and act of faith comes in place when you are not capable of achieving that goal/need by your own way and you give it to God's hand and God gives a revelation of an act to do to achieve that.

This is just a thought that God gave into my heart, you can take it or reject it.

We will check out some examples from Bible:
1) Mark 5:25-34 "A large crowd followed and pressed around him. And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, because she thought, "If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed." Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who touched my clothes?" "You see the people crowding against you," his disciples answered, "and yet you can ask, 'Who touched me?' But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering."

Here we can see that a woman who was suffering from internal bleeding for twelve years is getting healed. The goal/need of the woman was to get healed, the action here is she was going to doctors for care and spent all she had but was not healed. The act of faith is she gave this to God's hand and God gave the revelation of act, that is touching the cloth of Jesus, and she got healed.

2) John 5:5-9 "One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, "Do you want to get well?" "Sir," the invalid replied, "I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me." Then Jesus said to him, "Get up! Pick up your mat and walk." At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked."

Here we can see that a man who was an invalid for thirty-eight years gets healed. The goal/need of the man was to get healed. Here the action was to jump into the pool when the water is stirred, but he was not able to do that. The act of faith here is "Get up! Pick up your mat and walk." The man got healed.

There are so many examples like this in the Bible. I hope you understood what is act of faith from these examples.

Dear child of God are you in action to achieve your goals/needs and is not able to achieve those, don’t worry give your goal/need in to God's hand and pray for His revelation He will show you the act of faith that you have to do to achieve your goal/need. Most of the times it will be difficult for us to understand the act of faith, sometimes act of faith will not have anything to do with your goal, but if God is telling to do so don't hesitate. For getting healed, touching Jesus’ cloth didn’t had anything to do with that. But now it has.

When Israelites and Moses didn’t had anyway to move, stuck in front of the sea, God told Moses to raise the staff and stretch over the sea to divide the water. And the sea got divided and all of them were saved. Here also we can see that the act of faith was difficult to understand and didn’t have any connection with the goal/need. But with that act of faith all were saved.

In our life our main goal is to reach heaven, the action for that is doing good things, obeying the commandments, keeping away from all sins, doing pilgrimage.. etc.. But the act of faith is "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved" (Mark 16:16) you will not be finding any relation between getting into heaven with believing and getting baptized, it will be too difficult to understand, but it is the revelation from God to get saved.

Are you ready to do the act of faith that God revealed in your mind even if it is difficult to understand. If yes, you are going to achieve the goal in a simple way. If you are not going to do the act of faith, because it is difficult to understand, then you are the loser.

Do the act of faith and be blessed.

I AM THE WAY



John 14:6 Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Mathew 3:16-17 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17. And lo a voice from heaven, saying, this is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Mathew 17:5 While he yet spoke, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, this is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

Rev 1:17-18. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18. I am he that lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Rev 22:12-17. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. 13. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. 14. Blessed are they that do his commandments that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 15. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes a lie. 16. I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. 17. And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is a thirsty come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.


Sikh Scripture ‘Sri Guru Granth Sahib’ confirms it.

Read: -

Page 627

Lord God gave His Son; the yoke of pains and diseases has been broken. The men and women rejoice as merciful Lord has extended His mercy upon human race.

Page 1381 (Shalok 67)

Farid on death: - O Farid, on death your worldly pleasures are finished. The subtle thread amid soul and body will get broken. Your soul will rush to the house of “Angel of Israel”.

Page 315

O mortal man, you take the noose in your hands and go out at night to strangle others but God knows everything.

You hide yourself to look lustfully at the wives of others.

You break into safe places to drink sweet wine.

You shall get rewards for your deeds and regret.

“Angel of Israel” shall crush you like sesame seeds in the oil press.

Page 721

When “Angel of Israel” seizes you, what good theses worldly possessions will bring to you?

Holy Lord knows al your craftiness.

O Nanak, recite your prayers to the Holy God.


Page 953

Says Nanak, listen, O mind the true teachings.

Opening His ledger, God will ask for your accounts.

Those who rebelled against Him have unpaid accounts. They shall be called out.

“Angel of Israel” shall punish them.

Page 1019

Those who lived sinful life drenched in sins from top to bottom.

“Angel of Israel” seizes them by hair and tortures them.

They are consigned to hell by the Creator Lord. He asks for their accounts.

Page 1084

Let what you righteously earn be your bread.

Wash away the pollution of your wicked heart in the water of life.

One who feels the pains of the sufferers will reside in heaven and “Angel of Israel” does not cast them into hell.

FORGIVENESS IN JESUS

John 3:15. That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Page 723 (SGGS)

Men who have friendship with the “Angel of Israel”, all their sins are forgiven. I your humble servant aspire for a glance of Your Holiness.

Do you know “ANGEL OF ISRAEL”? If not, know Him today.

Gutter to Grace
And Peter said unto them, Repent ye, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ unto the remission of your sins; and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38


Introduction: I, the sinner have nothing to speak about myself but of the glory of the Savior “Lord Jesus Christ” who picked me up from the lowest rank in the caste oriented society of India where we are forced to live an inhumane life for centuries in the name of religion. I wish to discuss that my early life was horrible as I was born in an untouchable Sikh family of Punjab. Though Sikhism does not believe in the system of Castes but Sikhs do believe and have created caste based Gurudwaras (Temples) through out the world. Being born of low caste, I had to taste the bitterness of caste discrimination and prejudice through out as long as I remained in the fold of Hinduism/ Sikhism. I had my sick mother whom I never saw walking but only confined to bed till her death in year 1960. Virtually I do not know the delightfulness of motherly love.


My family could not afford to send me to College or University for studies beyond high school. For livelihood of the family I in my early childhood joined my father doing some low-grade jobs. Cultural backwardness made me a victim of early marriage too. I was only fifteen years old when my wife joined me. In nutshell, I was over burdened with family responsibilities at my tender age. We the children of untouchables do not have childhood but our tender hands instead of holding toys hold rough tools of workmen to support the family. Word “hope” has no place in our language.


We ‘the untouchables’ are worse than slaves for slaves are still considered within the fold of human race but Hinduism deny that we are even the creation of god. Our ancestors were not permitted to walk on common roads for the dust that could come in contact with our bodies would pollute the upper castes when they walk on those roads. India became independent in 1947 but in certain areas of my country even now women can not wear clothes on the upper parts of their bodies and their bare breasts exhibit the theology of Hinduism. My brethrens still can not wear shoes in southern India. The Government of India being dominated by upper castes defends the atrocities on the untouchables even in the courts of law of my country. In nutshell we are forced to live an inhuman life even in this modern age.


God’s plan: Lord had a different plan for my life. He blessed me the wisdom to complete my studies without teacher or even without books. I used to gather books from waste and prepare my study notes whenever I could escape from my routine job. Purely through self study, I completed graduation in Sikh Scriptures in 1972, Master in Economics in 1976. I used to visit the university only to sit in the examination.


God’s Mercy: In year 1976, I appeared in the competition for Indian Administrative Services (the highest civil service of India) and Lord blessed me success. The rate of success for the said competition is 0.01 percent. This miracle happened not for my acumen but for His blessings and purpose as He had to accomplish the plan that He had pre-designed. I retired from my service in September 2007 from a senior position in the Government of India after holding various administrative jobs for thirty years.


Caste prejudice: There has been a severe heartbreaking pain within me against the caste prejudice and I could never accept to surrender before the so called upper castes. I always opposed and fought tooth and nail against their hateful attitude. I never accepted that the total humanity except three upper castes of India is not created by God. This looked to me to be a terrible cheat of Satan. Since I had no exposure to the Word of God, so I did not know the process of creation.


It is a matter of utter shame that bureaucracy of my country is so communal that I was abused by my seniors in the name of my low caste. I filed a criminal complaint against the culprit officers in the court of law under the prevention of atrocities Act (1989). On the basis of witnesses, court issued summoning orders against those officers. The Government of India engaged the former Advocate General of India to defend the case at a very high rate of fee. You may understand the plight of my people through my complaint where I was denied justice.


Being a senior government officer, all sinful temptations were within my access and I could not escape and save myself from the fall. I slipped from His ways. Lord, whom I did not know (as I was unbeliever) protected me from every fall and restored this wild branch (me) to His vineyard.


Lord lured me: Lord lured and brought me to the light with a candy. The candy of the Lord was the restoration of the lost eye sight (right eye) of my daughter Jasleen Singh through prayer.


When she was only one year old, she pushed the television trolley while playing on the ground. Television fell upon her head and caused head injury. She was unconscious for a long time. When she gained her consciousness her eyes were squinted. We got her operated surgically and the squint was cleared but she lost the vision of her right eye. We visited so many eye hospitals but everywhere we could be advised that optical nerves can not be repaired. Medical Science said it was a permanent loss.


But nothing is impossible for the Lord. My friend Pr Rajan Thomas put his hand on the head of the child and prayed. My child felt strong flow of current of current flowing through her body. It was the touch of the Spirit of God. In a period of six months, her sight got fully restored. She does not need even the glasses now. She is a grown up child of twenty years with a very pleasant look.


For this wonderful gift of the Lord, I do not know how to express my gratefulness to the Most Merciful God.


This is how He led me to accept Him my Savior. His unique gift of salvation to the sinners like me is still beyond expression in worldly language.


LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous. Psalm 146:8


Bible Education: The charismatic gift planted the seed of Holy Kingdom within me and I started studying Holy Bible with ‘Rhema Church of India’. It did a three years certificate course from 1993 to 1996. Rev K L Chaudhari the President of the Church gave me baptism (Dipping in water] I started serving the Lord in my free time as I was a serving officer of the Government of India too. In year 2002, Pr K L Chaudhary ordained me as a “Minister of the Church”.


I joined a distance learning diploma course from ‘Home Fellowship of Whales’ (UK). The said ministry ordained me as Reverend in year 2003. Presently I have the privilege of ‘Fellowship’ with the ministry. In recognition of my church activities in North India, ‘International Institute of Church Management, Dallas Texas, United States’ honored me with “Doctor of Divinity”. I am a life time member of IICM.


Languages: I am fluent (read, write and speak) in three languages such as English, Hindi and Punjabi.


He chose me: In 1 Timothy 1, St Paul claimed to be the chief sinner. His claim could be correct because I did not exist during his time otherwise this could have been my privilege to pronounce. After the restoration of the sight of my child, I felt that it was the conception of the seed of Holy Kingdom within me. This was a wonderful gift of the love of the Lord as He planted the seed of His Word within me. Lord started visiting me through my dreams with His specific messages to work for His Kingdom. His messages always spoke that ‘for His mercy, He had washed my sins and He commanded me to live righteously through His glory and sin no more’.


I wish to produce one of the wonderful dreams that I witnessed. I saw the Lord lying on a cot in my room and I had held His tender holy feet in my hands. I was weeping on His feet washing them with my tears. He sat up and put His hand on my head blessed me and disappeared. I experienced wonderful vision of the glory of the Lord with a specific anointing from Him. It was like the blessings on the sinful woman who deserved to die but blessed eternal life by the Lord. “I do not condemn you. Now go and sin no more.” Lord blessed me a new life through His mercy upon me.


Pastoral Experience: In India I have my own ministry “Holy Vision India” with Pr Rajan Thomas. We have registered this ministry as a ‘Church’ with the Government of India. Now our ministry is serving in Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Utter Pardesh, Uttranchal and Kerala states of India. We have home churches everywhere and in Delhi our church was in my house but now at Rajan’s house. It is a small church of less than hundred members. I preached as Pastor with Pr Chaudhary and later on with Pr Rajan Thomas for seven years (2000-2007). The church is blessed with the gifts of the Spirit of God.


The most recent visit of the Lord was like the call to St Paul. I produce the verses of the Holy Bible that the Lord gave me that day:


“But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee; Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, 18. To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. Acts 26:16-18


I understand His specific call for me to carry the Holy Gospel to the most un-reached community called ‘Sikhs’. Lord has blessed me success too. In Caruthers I gave baptism to a Sikh young man named Surjit Singh. Presently, I am working with Rock Church Sacramento, California.


My belief
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6
The Scriptures:
The verbal inspiration of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as originally given by God; their sole-sufficiency and final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
The Lord Jesus Christ: The essential deity and perfect humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, the only mediator between God and men; His virgin birth, sinless life and sacrificial death on the cross as the only substitute for sinners; His burial, bodily resurrection and ascension to heaven; His high priestly ministry and personal return.
Baptism: I believe in the water immersion Baptism in the name of Jesus.
Holy Spirit: The work of the Holy Spirit in regenerating the sinner and indwelling, sanctifying and empowering the believer.
God’s Plan: Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou came forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee. Jeremiah 1:5
How does He prepare His Army? We the chosen people, the servants of Most High God are soldiers of His Army and the Lord is the Commander, the King of the Kings. He is Sovereign God and He recruits the soldiers even before they are in the womb of the mother. I understand that right from the conception into my mother’s womb He shaped me rough and tough in the fire and tools of His hands for His unending love. He taught me to live in scarcity and subjected me to all humiliations to generate humility in me. He tempted me to sins and picked me up for appreciation of His Holiness. He gave me the wisdom to attain high education even without resources for His merciful nature. To expose me to the fallacy of the world He blessed me high official position in the worldly government. But thanks to His love, He never gave me long rope that I get lost in the satanic kingdom of this world.
Lord brought me to the United States just four months before my retirement from government service so that I do not get lost. Lord gave me total exposure to the Sikh Scripture to prepare me to counter and encounter the erroneous belief of the religion and make them understand the Holy Word of God.
My coming to U S A is miraculous.


Christian International Ministries Network (Apostolic) ‘Santa Rosa Beach, Florida 32459 USA’ invited me to participate in Apostolic Conference. This invitation helped me to secure my R1 visa to the United States. I remember, on reaching Airport at Los Angels, I did not know my destination or any one who could provide me temporary shelter and food. I sat on the seashore and prayed to the Lord to lead me further. On return to the hotel where I stayed for a few days, I found a small paper in my baggage. Paper was bearing a telephone number of Gursharan Singh Sekhon. He had worked with me in India for about five years. From nearby telephone shop, I tried the said number and could get him on the line. He immediately recognized my voice but it was a big surprise to him. He is a trucker and at that time he was on his truck, three thousand miles away from Los Angels.


Just after four days, he came to Los Angeles and picked me up to his house in Fresno, California state. On reaching there, Lord made me to feel that He had visited that place before my coming over there. Mr. Sekhon’s two sons, his wife and younger brother gave me too much honor and never made me to feel that I was an outsider. I enjoyed my stay with them for three months and never experienced scarcity of any thing. They used to say that God had sent His chosen one to their house to bless the house. Mr. Sekhon accompanied me to attend the conference also.
For more than a year, I worked as Evangelist independently. Thanks to the blessings of the Lord, the Bishop Dr Nathaniel Wilson and Pr Myles Young of Rock Church Sacramento, California have picked me up to reach the lost Indian community and also associate with Dr Paul Baumeister, in Apostolic School of Theology and create the courses in South Asian Languages.
The Message I carry to the lost (Hindus and Sikhs): Brethren, you believe that: The birth of the soul is a curse for the sins of previous life. For you the deeds (Karma) of the soul grant the body in the next life as the soul deserves. The soul can take birth as cat, dog or in any other form of life depending upon the Karmas from your previous life. You believe in 8.4 million forms of life on the earth and the soul has to pass through all those for taking birth as human being. You are terrified by 330 Million gods. You have no concept of Heaven but only extinction of the soul from the cycle of lives and deaths.
Salvation: - You have a different meaning of salvation called Moksha. It is the extinction of the soul from the cycle of births and deaths. You do not believe in eternal life but believe in eternal death or extinction of the soul.
We believe and rejoice that God has granted us this wonderful life. He created man in His own image so that we may know Him, obey Him, and love Him. He loves us. To save us from our sins He sent His eternal, only Son, Jesus Christ, who died for us and rose again from the dead so that we may have the gift of eternal life. Salvation means the complete and free forgiveness of our sins and eternal life with the Lord in Heaven for all who will believe in Jesus Christ.
Do you still choose eternal death? I invite you to choose eternal life with God in Heaven. This is the GOOD NEWS for you.
The above message I carry to the lost community. I have distributed a few thousands copies of seven tracts in Punjabi language. All these tracts are prepared by me.
His Blessings: Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labor. 1 Corinthians 3:8

Do I believe in destiny?

Do I believe in destiny?
I would give it a thought but today, all glory to our Almighty God, did I finally understood.
This is the first.
No one would come in you or influence your thoughts without PERMISSION. God and devil BOTH enter with OUR permission. The scripture testifies it. It is written that God is standing and knocking and will enter only if WE OPEN THE DOOR. He won’t come until we allow Him. The same thing goes with Satan. He will enter only if WE give him a doorway to enter.
This is the second.
God loves me and this is love that He gave His only son to die for me and Jesus came and died and gave His precious life for me. He had me in His mind before EVEN MY PARENTS WERE BORN. He decided a role for me to play in this world. He decided to use me to make His kingdom come. In short, HE MADE MY DESTINY.
This is the third.
Satan is alive and kicking. He has more number of followers than any god after our LIVING JESUS. But only a few know him. He is the king of lies. He is a loser. He knows that he is going to lose. In fact, he knows that HE HAS LOST. He knows that he is nothing for our Almighty God. Still, THAT DOESN’T MAKE HIM ANY LESS DANGEROUS.
Still. He is an angel. He is more powerful than any angel alive. He was made by God. He had his instruments CONSTRUCTED IN HIM. Even Meekayel, the angel of fight said let God judge you. This proves that Satan is a very powerful, very dangerous and very deadly enemy for me.
This is the fourth.
Like a plan that God has for me, SATAN ALSO HAS A PLAN FOR ME. Satan tries to imitate God in his every step. He has also made a very convincing role for me to play and THAT ROLE LOOKS VERY DELICIOUS. He will put thoughts in my mind and make me believe that I have to become something that HE WANTS ME TO, NOT GOD. BUT THAT IS NOT OUR DESTINY.
This is the fifth.
I started with a question. “Do I believe in destiny”?
Here is the real thing.
I HAVE A PURPOSE TO FULFILL ON THIS EARTH. It is I who decide the path to be taken. It is I who choose between God and satan. It is I who decide the broader track to follow or the narrower one. But until I ask God, how will I know that purpose? And this is the very thing that satan doesn’t want me to know. MY PURPOSE ON THIS EARTH. It is unto me. If I give myself to satan, he will definitely break me and make me an animal. He will make me achieve success and still I will not be satisfied. He will give me any women I want and still I would long for love. He will give me any drug in this world and still I would want for a drug that removes loneliness. He will pour over me a shower of money but still I would search a shop, still I would search to buy happiness. He will give me empty promises of healings and I would wait upon the biggest liar to fulfill them. Where is success in this? AND I WILL DIE WITHOUT EVER KNOWING THE ONE AND ONLY LIVING GOD.
BUT that is not what God wants. He doesn’t want me to be lonely. He doesn’t want me to be unhappy. He doesn’t want me to be a cripple. He doesn’t want me to be unsuccessful. He wants to be with me. He wants to give me company. He wants to give me gifts. He wants to shower His blessings upon me. He wants to give me a lady I would be mad for. He wants me to live this life in a perfect body. He wants to give me His money that will only bring happiness. In short, HE WANTS TO LOVE ME AS HIS CHILD. HE WANTS ME TO CALL HIM FATHER. And He tried, is trying, and will always be trying for that relationship. And the greatest sacrifice He made is that He gave his only son, Jesus, to die for me on that cross. Jesus was given my drug of loneliness, my unhappiness, my longing for love, my diseases, my everything. He endured all this just for me and for His love of our Father. He knew the very love that is existing in the heart of my Father and He gave Himself for me. Jesus is God personified. He defeated death. He defeated satan. He defeated the king of darkness on that cross. And he did ALL THIS FOR ME. So that I would live a life that can be called worth living. So that I WOULD CALL HIM MY FATHER. And here my search for my destiny ends. It is in him only. It is in my father only. It is in my Almighty Living God ONLY!!!!!.

My First Missionary Trip - Pl read and be encouraged

My First Missionary Trip
Most of you may be knowing about this.
When I was into business the lord was forcing me from year 2004 to be there into full time ministry.I was earning well enough and was in the peak of my business.On 1st nov 2005 I happen to attend Bro John Joseph’s Fasting prayer in Kamaraj Memorial hall. That day the message was for me and there itself I committed myself for his call. During my submission I said lord you need to take care of my needs. I won’t ask anybody else.

As I was in service industry I used to get lot of phone calls and it was not easy to enter the new way.So I needed a break.As per the guidance of the holy spirit I planned for a prayer trip to 4 metro cities and other places including Nepal.I along with Pr.Prakash we booked the trip for entire leg of journey and the office people paid for our ticket.

Now the day of departure came and I asked the lord to take care of my need as a sign that he has called me for this cause.So the train’s departure time was at 8.00p.m.At around my pastor friend gave me a call saying he doesn’t have money and asked me to leave alone.In reply I said don’t worry all the expenses will be taken care.To tell you the truth I had only 50 Rs (1 $) in my packet.You can imagine my pathetic situation. Now no hope and only to believe in the lord for miracle.

My mother and sister prayed for safe journey and led by the lord my sister placed 2 500 Rs note in my hand and my mother placed 500 Rs.Now a slight hope came and we started the journey. Next day we reached Manglore and Bro.Anburaj assisted us and we were there for 3 days and all three days we had meetings in different places.

From there we went to Goa and prayed over that place.From ther our ticket was not confirmed and upto half way till ratnagiri we were given seats but from there we traveled in the parcel bogie.All night the train was travlling in high speed and next day morning we reached Mumbai.Spending 2 days there we started for Baroda in Gujarat.Then went to Kota Rajasthan.Then we reached Delhi our capital.After Delhi we reached Jammu Pr.Navamanickam assisted us.From there we started for Nepal.During our stay in Manglore I received a phone call from saying there is a 3 days meeting arranged by local nepali organization and they want us to preach.I told them about the schedule and didn’t confirm.But these people they started to pray for and to our surprise we reached one day prior to the meeting.Pr.Ramesh Thapa came and he was really exited.Due to lack of money we said we can not give u 3 days but may be one day.But due to their compeltion we had to be there for 3 days.First day itself among @500 believers 85% GAVE COMMITMENT for soul winning.In the night I thanked the lord for choosing me.Our packets were empty but on the final day the move of the holy spirit was marvelous.Many of them received the filling of holy spirit and I was just amazed to see them.Praise the lord.Next day we started for interior Nepal and the missionary paid for our Bus ticket and 3 days we ministered in different places.All 3 days the local people who lived in forests took care of us.While returning they bought the ticket for us and we reached Border Safely.After reaching Gorakhpur we just checked our bank accounts and to our surprise we had money in both accounts.After withdrawing the money my pastor friend asked me to have a visit to Darjeeling as a break.We went to Darjeeling in the hill train which took almost 12 hours to reach up.We had a over night stay and we returned to siliguri next day.From New Jalpaiguri we took a train for Howrah where we met Pr. Isaiah and went to different places for prayers.From there we returned back to Chennai.
To our surprise we never missed a single meal.All our needs were met and the lord was mindful of us to bring us back safely.The caller is faithful.It’s almost 5 years since the lord is my provider and I lack nothing.To all those who are facing financial problems.Believe the lord 100% and he will guide you.
God bless you all

....U are not Alone....

hieexx....Praise be to God alone...:):)
hope u all are blessed...

Today i wanna share the biggest problem which we all are facing and Satan is using it against us....
i wanna share about LONELINESS....
we can overcome it in the name of Jesus, our Lord God Almighty....

Loneliness is the feeling like other people dnt care about you....itzz a feeling of being alone......feeling like nobody loves you.. feeling like u belong nowhere....you may feel like nobody understands how u feel.........they don't care or bother abt it...
Holy scriptures say that....
"...And surely I am with you always,to the very end of the Age.."'
(Matthew-28:20)..

Jesus will be with each one of us in every step of the way...it may be hard to grasp the concept because we can't see or touch Jesus..That's where FAITH comes in.If we take sometime in our loneliness we can see him every where in each step.In both our good or bad times...we can talk to Jesus like we talk with our friends..He always listens..He cares for us and love us like anything....There are so many instances when we feel that we are alone.A good friend may not be with us in our bad times or is double-crossing us intentionally or unintentionally..these things hurt so badly that it feels we had been shot through the heart.There is no blood but still, it is so painful for us... and then, we will start finding love and compassion in the outside world..... we will start searching it in Satan's world ...and the results can be more dangerous ..we can succumb to smoking ,drinking,drugs,not required relationships, and ultimately fall in Satan's trap and believe in the king of liar's promise of Love,recognition and compassion..we believe that all these things will remove our depression..we will find this world a terrible place to live in.....and in end will try to commit suicide. We will believe that we have no purpose to fulfill in this Earth.. we will believe that this is a game that God is playing and i am the target in that game......
On these times, we just have to remember Jesus. There is no other cure of loneliness except Him..He is our Heavenly Father who loves us love like His child....... we will realize that there is a God who left His throne and endured the agony of cross for ma loneliness..His death at cross and his resurrection is the anthem of victory over Satan..we will realize that even if there is no one in this world who will love us or even like us, even if our own family leaves us ,there is a God so humble that he will still love us..If the need be, he will leave His golden throne and come down to carry us in his mighty arms to remove our loneliness....and we can find comfort in His name..and when we come in His presence, He's the only one who can give you comfort and wrap you with his love in every moment when u are alone and and feel like crying......He doesn't want us to cry or to be alone....
He can comfort us like no one else can.....
so u are not Alone.....

be blessed...
Jesus Rockzz....:):)
