Preach the Gospel.................. Earth

Preach the Gospel to ……Earth

And ye shall know the truth, and the Truth shall make you free. John 8:32

People in India have misconception that Missionaries introduced Christianity while country was under British Rule whereas the Gospel reached India in the first century, just after ascension of Jesus Christ to heaven. In fact Christianity was accepted by people of India while most of countries of Europe did not know about this faith. As ‘Buddhism’ born in India could not survive the strong opposition of Hindus so Christianity too lost its grip soon did not vanish totally. Some families of southern states refused to surrender to fanatic communal forces but and following and preaching Holy Gospel.
After ascension of Jesus to Heaven, the disciples, dispersed to all nations of the world, for preaching the Gospel as Lord had commanded them: –
Mathew 28:18-20. And Jesus came to them and spoke unto them, saying, all authority hath been given unto me in heaven and on earth. 19. Go you therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit: 20 teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
St Thomas went to India in 52 A.D. by sea route and landed on Seaport Malian Kala in Kerala. At that time boundary of India had extended up to Afghanistan and Russia. He influenced some Brahmin Hindu Priests through miracles of the Spirit of God and they accepted the Lord as only “Savior”. Members of four Brahmins families named Pallmattam, Sankapuri, Kali and Kalliakaran took Baptism from Saint Thomas in year 52 A.D.
Later on Christianity spread in Southern States very fast. The descendants of said families still have the documents to testify the fact of acceptance of Jesus as ‘Savior’ by their forefathers. They helped St Thomas in construction of seven churches and some of those churches are still open for worship in new shape. As per survey records of Government of India, grave yards of these families exist vide entries 460/5, 460/6, 519/8 near Kali Jungle in Kerala.
Thomas did not confine his preaching within South India only but preached the Holy Gospel throughout the country for twenty years and people in general accepted the Lord as the only Savior. He gave thousands of Baptisms on Indian soil. Even a few kings accepted Christianity and helped St Thomas’s mission. Among them, King Mahadevan of Tamil Nadu played a leading role.
North India too accepted new religion and its impact in Punjab is visible, as people of Punjab do not follow caste system so rigidly. Sikhism too has considerably condemned caste system as it is against Divinity. In North India people call church building as “GIRJAGHAR” (House to fall before Him). It was a place for total surrender before Lord. So in Girjaghar people confessed their sins and prayed for forgiveness and mercy of Heavenly Father. Word ‘RABB’ used to address GOD in Punjabi language has come from ‘RABBI’ used by followers of Jesus for Him. Rabbi means ‘Master’. The root word in Strong's Dictionary: -
St Thomas’s mission finished in year 72 A.D. While he was worshipping the Lord a few fanatic Brahmins attacked and killed him near Chennai. His remains are still there in India on Thomas Hill near Chennai and devotees visit his shrine with great reverence.
Remembering him, the Government of India acknowledged his revered contributions through state function as St. Thomas Day celebration in New Delhi on December 18, 1955. Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the then President of India, said:
"St. Thomas came to India when many of the countries of Europe had not yet become Christian, and so those Indians who trace their Christianity to him have a longer history and a higher ancestry than that of Christians of many of the European countries."
It would be appropriate to cite here an extract from the radio message of Pope Pius XII on 31 December, 1952 on the occasion of the 19th century celebrations of the arrival of the Apostle in India:
"Nineteen hundred years have passed since the Apostle came to India. During the centuries that India was cut off from the West and despite many trying vicissitudes, the Christian communities formed by the Apostle conserved intact the legacy he left them. This apostolic lineage, beloved sons and daughters, is the proud privilege of the many among you who glory in the name of Thomas Christians and we are happy on this occasion to acknowledge and bear witness to it."
Bhagti Lehar (the Devotees Movement) is the offshoot of same seed of Holy Word, sown by Saint Thomas during his twenty years preaching in the country. Devotees believed the same teachings that of Jesus such as: -
1. There is only one God the “creator” and there is no other God. Only He is worthy of worship.
2. No idol is worthy of worship as idol cannot deliver.
3. God created man in His own image.
4. Man should live a life of righteousness.
5. Man departed from Him for his sins and should seek His mercy confessing the sins, through prayers. He is very merciful God and loves us.
6. Honor your father and mother for their blessings.
7. Do not kill, do not commit adultery, do not steal and do not covet.
8. Soul is the bride and He is the bridegroom.
9. Angel of Israel is the Lord of judgment. Sri Guru Granth Saheb the Sikh scripture calls Him Angel of Azzraa-eel and testifies that only He is the Lord of Judgment and He forgives the sins.
In fact lower castes of India suffered atrocities in the hands of upper castes for their low birth for centuries and are still subjected to suffering. For their deliverance, God sent His Saints to preach the life of holiness so that people may turn from sins and worship Him. Most of the Saints came up from untouchable families.
Read (Luke 10:21) O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. He used the ignoble (Worldly) communities for His message.
Caste System:- Hindu scriptures commanded division of society into four castes in a pyramid shape (Tower of Babel) with Brahmin on the top, Kshatriya below them and next below the Vaishya then Shudra at lowest level. Ladder of caste system does not end here but below the ladder are untouchables the most hated people of the world. No upper caste kept any social interaction with the caste lower caste to it.
Population wise only 15% people belong to Brahmin, Kshatriya and Vaishya. There are 60% Shudra and 25% Untouchables who are subjected to discrimination by 15% upper castes. Untouchables were designated as Avarna means outside the four Varnas so outside the fold of Hinduism. In year 1909 when population of Muslims outnumbered Hindus, Hindus added untouchables in their bracket (statistically), but till date they are looked upon with hate and discriminated.
Untouchables, their origin and their duties.
This is what Manu has to say about their origin and their position. Here Manu included the entire population except the people covered within the four Varnas.
(1) All those tribes in this world, which are excluded from (the community of) those born from the mouth, the arms, the thighs, and the feet (of Brahman), are called Dasyus, whether they speak the language of the Mlekkhas (barbarians) or that of the Aryans.
(2) Near well-known trees and burial ground, on mountains and in groves, let these (tribes) dwell, known (by certain marks), and subsisting by their peculiar occupations.
(3) But the dwellings of the Chandalas and Shwapakas shall be outside the village, they must be made apapatras and their wealth (shall be) dogs and donkeys.
(4) Their dress (shall be) the garments of the dead, (they shall eat) their food from broken dishes, black iron (shall be) their ornaments, they must always wander from place to place.
(5) A man who fulfils a religious duty, shall not seek intercourse with them; their transactions (shall be) among themselves and their marriages with their equals.
(6) Their food shall be given to them by others (than an Aryan giver) in a broken dish; at night they shall not walk about in villages and in towns.
(7) By day they must go about for the purpose of their work, distinguished by marks at the King's command, and they shall carry out the corpses (of persons) who have no relatives, that is a settled rule.
(8) By the King's order they shall always execute the Criminals in accordance with the law, and they shall take for themselves the clothes, the beds and the ornaments of (such) criminals.
(9) He who has had connection with a woman of one of the lowest castes shall be put to death.
(10) If one who (being a member of the Chandalas or some other low caste) must not be touched, intentionally defiles by his touch one who (as a member of a twice born caste) may be touched (by other twice born persons only) he shall be put to death.

Here in clause (10) twice born does not mean as ‘born again Christians’ but twice born as prescribed by Manu.
In Law of Manu, the ceremony for getting twice born has a big fallacy. It is wearing the sacred thread by top three castes only that too have different standards for each caste. The shudras and untouchables (85% of population of India and the total population of World except India) are not eligible to wear sacred thread and cannot be twice born. So no salvation for the world except three Varnas as per the Hindu social order.
Viewing the above law one can easily conclude that: -
1. The said law did not come from God but Manu framed it for the privileges of Brahmins.
2. Manu was not the person saved by God (Claimed by Hindus) when God cleansed the earth of evildoers through flood. Manu was not righteous like Noah deserving life but such law could have come from devilish mind not from the God’s saved man. This law came up much after the flood by Nimrod named Manu or Prajapati by Hindus.
3. Satan used Manu to confuse the law of God by replacing it with barbaric law. Manu’s law created hate among people of India to establish that they are not created by God in His image but came from the mouth, arms, legs and feet of the dead body of Prajapati/ Manu.
4. These ten commandments of Manu for human race are unique example of the law of discriminations. Satan has given His commandments to contradict the ten commandments of God.
5. And the serpent said unto the woman, ye shall not surely die. This assurance of Satan that “you shall surely not die” has lead Hindus to coin the theory of Karma and birth after death as dog, donkey or anything else depending upon one’s deeds during their lifetime. God has nothing to do with you except putting you as living creature like a clerk of post office placing mail in different mail boxes. There is no need of salvation as you will surely not die but live as cats or dogs. Even cats and dogs may have their next birth as man or woman. Law seems liberal to animals but not for human beings.

This false belief has: -
Lead them to believe that man is not in the image of God because, if man could get rebirth as cat and dog, how he is in image of God? B) That, his next birth is certain, it is immaterial whether he gets birth as man or donkey. He is satisfied with another life. C) That his next birth depends on his deeds in this life (Theory of Karmas). Theory of Karma has denied that God is merciful and forgives sins of man. For them it is as simple as ‘give and take’ or shopping of merchandise. D) That God’s Word is a lie as He had said “if you eat that fruit you will surely die”, but Satan’s word is truthful as he had assured “you shall surely not die” and they will take birth again and again, in any of the specie out of 8.4 million living creatures, as mentioned in Hindu scriptures. So they turned from the image of God to the image of Satan and have worshipped Nimrod and his mother/wife as god and goddess in different names. This is what Satan wanted to do, as he is a liar from the beginning.
What the Holy Word of God Says about the dead?
Ecclesiastes 9:5. For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. 6. As well their love, as their hatred and their envy, is perished long ago; neither have they any more a portion forever in anything that is done under the sun.
SWASTIKA: Sign of SWASTIKA used by Hitler on his flag, as a sign of his being of superior race has its roots in India. Brahmins used this signs for centuries with same passion much before Hitler used it. It is still worshipped in India as a holy sign. Brahmin preachers are trying hard that sign of “RED CROSS” be replaced by sign of Swastika. In fact Hinduism is true Nazism and still keeping its hold on Indian social system. Wonderful constitution of India has failed to make any dent in discriminative attitude of high castes towards lower castes as Brahmins dominates the system of governance of the country.
Who was Nimrod? He was the first king on earth but unfortunately he was devilish king. Nimrod means, "let us revolt." He is said to be a mighty hunter in the sight of the Lord, but it has a gloomy meaning. He was a tyrant or despot leading an organized rebellion against the rule of Yahweh. He hunted not animals, but the souls of men who did not submit to his law. Nimrod built the first post-flood city. He led the people to construct “Tower of Babel”. Babel means confusion and said land got its name “Babylon”.
In Babylonian religion, Nimrod (Marduk)held a unique place. His mother/wife was Semiramis. Marduk and Semiramis became ancient god and goddess of Babylon. Prajapati or Manu is same King Nimrod. Nimrod and his mother/wife (he married his mother) are worshipped throughout the world as god and goddess in different names. God scattered the human race from one center to spread on whole of the earth. God confused the language of men when the planned the construction of the tower to reach Heaven so that they may not interact with each other and make joint plan of revolt. It happened when they started construction of “Tower of Babel”. Read Holy Word of God: -
(Gen 11:7, 8, 9) 7. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8. So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off building the city. 9. Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
At that time Marduk and Semiramis as god and goddess reached all corners of the earth in different names. In India, they reached as Prajapati. It is said that Prajapati satisfied his sexual urge with his daughter and to punish him 330 Million Hindu gods, with help of Rudra, (another god) killed and cut him into pieces. Four castes have evolved from his different scattered limbs. See the root and the fruit, “sow filth, and reap filth”.
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? (Mathew 7:16)
Fanaticism of Hindus: Gandhi. He is called the only ‘emancipator of untouchables’ was dedicated supporter and attorney of caste system in India. He said, “Caste System is the soul of Hinduism. When British Kingdom granted “Communal Award” in year 1932 to uplift Shudras and untouchables, (85% population), Gandhi opposed it at the cost of his life and went on fast unto death. His hypocrite followers projected his image as the only saviour of untouchables. It was in their interests to lionize Gandhi for keeping their barbaric law safe. Their other motive was to suppress the voice of Dr B. R Ambedker (Father of Constitution of India) who had made the world to know the plight of untouchables, by representing them in ‘Round Table Conference’ in England in year 1931-32.
Even modern Hindus are not ready to dispense with the devilish law. But wherever untouchables or members of other low castes embrace Christianity, fanatic Hindus cause atrocities not upon them only but upon the preachers of Gospel also. On one hand they burn them alive to death and on other they do not accept them in Hindu fold even because Hindus do not want to lose the right of exploitation and also extend the privilege of wearing sacred thread (For being twice born) to them as Hindu Scriptures do not permit it. This is hypocrisy of Hindus to retain the right of exploitation of lower castes.
Unfortunately Hindu uses the untouchables for all unlawful activities in the country. In any such eventuality, the caste system plays its role. Mischief comes from the mind of Brahmin; Kshatriya supplies arms, Vaishya finances it and Shudra or untouchable is used for it as labor. Killing of Sikhs in 1984 in the Delhi (Capital of the country), Demolition of Babri Masjid in year 1992, Killing of Muslims in Gujarat, Burning of Christians and demolition of Churches they are used. Under the command of Hindus they kill their own brethren. Hindus use them, exploiting their poverty by supplying them liquor and little food. They work as labor for them and commit crimes. Hindu are very coward and they keep their image as most meek people on earth like Gandhi.
Seeking forgiveness for my evil thoughts, from my Saviour, I offer myself for conversion to Hinduism if: -
1. They are prepared to accept me in Hindu fold by putting their so-called holy thread on my body performing their ceremony for getting me twice born Hindu.
2. I am better educated than at-least 95% of Brahmins of India. So I should be eligible for sacred thread that Brahmins wear. So accordingly I should be accepted as Brahmin.
1. I should have access to all Hindu Gods, goddesses and temples.
2. Or, I invite them to accept my Lord as ‘Saviour’. I assure them, all privileges available to Christians, will be extended to them.
I know they cannot do it. Mrs. Indra Gandhi as Prime Minister of the country was denied access to Tirupati temple of Hindus because she had married Froze Gandhi, outside the Hindu fold.
If they do not accept me and my shudra and untouchable brethren (85% population of India) in their religion, granting the privilege of being born again, what right do they have to oppose our accepting any other religion of World? Do they not think that salvation is equally necessary for downtrodden people as it is for 15% upper castes?
In fact the followers of the Lord need to ask the Government of India to protect their right, as they are the lost sheep of the Lord. At least the Christians in India should approach the Supreme Court of India to intervene and protect their right to seek salvation by getting ‘born again’, before second coming of the Lord.
Truth is that Shudras and untouchables are not Hindus because they are not eligible for getting born again for salvation as per Hindu Scriptures. In their case, it is not conversion from one religion to other but adoption of some religion. They do not belong to any religion. No one has any right to stop them from adopting any religion of world.
God’s Plan: God sent His Saints through untouchable Communities and other lower castes to revolt against devilish law. They virtually preached the Word of Real God, to turn people towards Him. They vehemently gave the message of God to them to reject all false gods.
Read a few examples quoted from Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji (The Holy Scripture of Sikhism)
Denunciation of the satanic sacred thread
Sri Guru Nanak Dev ji The first Sikh Guru rejected the thread. He said: -
DAYA KAPAH, SANTOKH SOOT, JATU GANDI, SAT VATT.
EH JANAUE JIEW KA HAI TAA PANDEY GHATT
If you have cotton of mercy, thread of bliss of His glory, knot of sexual morality and twist of truthfulness, put that thread on body. It will be a sacred thread worth wearing.
Saint Kabir ji He condemned the so-called system of birth of Brahmin from the mouth of Prajapati very sarcastically.
JE TU BRAHMIN BRAHMANI JAYYA
TU KAHE AUR VAT NAHIN AAYA
O Brahmin, if you are born of Brahmin woman, why did you not come through some other way? You too have born through same filthy outlet of woman.
Namdev ji. He mockingly rejected the Hindu scriptures and gods.
AJU NAME BEETHUL DEKHIA, MURAKH KO SAMJHAO RE
O Brahmin, I saw God the Lord today. You are following unwise practices so could not see Him. You are fool and need wisdom to understand Him.
PANDEY TUMARI GAYATRI LODHEY KA KHET KHATTI THEE,
LAI KAR THEGGA TANGARI TORHI LANGAT LANGAT JATI THEE.
O Brahmin, You say Gytari is holy mantra. You also say that for curse on it, it became cow and grazed in field of Lodha. He entangled its legs and broke them. Gayatri walked as lame and crippled.
PANDEY TUMRA MAHADEV,
DHAULEY BALLD UUPAR CHARRHIA DEKHEYA THAA
MODI KE GHAR KHANNA PAKKA VAA KAA LARKA MARIYA THAA
O Brahmin, you worship Mahadeva (Shiva). You also say that he rides on white bull. Once in the house of Modi, food was cooked for him. He did not like that food and killed his son out of fury.
PANDEY TUMRA RAMCHANDU SO VEE AAWAT DEKHYA THAA
RAVAN SETI SARWAR HOIE GHAR KEE JOIE GAWAI THEE
O Brahmin, you worship Ram and also say he lost his wife to Ravna who had kidnapped her. You are blind and cannot see real God.
HINDU ANNAH TURKU KANHA.
DUHAN TE GIANI SIAANA.
HINDU POOJE DEHURA, MUSLMAN MASIT.
NAME SAEE SEVIA JIS DEHURA NA MASIT.
Hindu is blind of both eyes as he worships idols, temples, false gods and scriptures but also condemn them. He has no belief in them. Muslims worship graves and mosques and bound by the traditional law. He does not worship idols, so is blind of one eye. Enlightened person is wiser than both of them as he worships only the Father the Creator. Namdev says he worships only Him who has neither temple nor mosque.
Read Holy Word of God (1 Corinthian Chapter 3:16-21) 16. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17. If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. 18. Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seems to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 19. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He takes the wise in their own craftiness. 20. And again, The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain. 21. Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours.
Sri Guru Ravidas ji exposed the treacherous act of Indra (Hindu god) who molested the wife of Gautma.
SEESU GAUTAM NARI UMAPATT SWAMI
DHARAN SAHAS BHAG GAMI
Episode of Rishi Gautam’s wife, Shiva and Indra. For Indra’s sexual lust, God punished and cursed him by creating marks of female genitals on his entire body. Indra had treacherously molested Gautam’s wife using moon Hindu gods to help him in committing the immoral act.
Apart from these there are a good number of instances of condemnation of Hindu gods and scriptures by saints of God. It is a big subject and needs enough space to discus.
Hinduism only scattered bricks of the Tower of Babel
All Hindu beliefs such as Yoga, Meditation, Art of Living, Tantra, and Mantra etc are the tools of Satan to confuse the Word of God. Its preachers are the agents of Satan working hard against God’s kingdom, as the end time is very near. Satan is working overtime to keep his hold on the earth through them.
Returning back to the revolt of the chosen saints of God, their belief is the same as that of Christianity.
BABA FARID He was the first writer of Punjabi literature. His verses in praise of the Most High are placed in Sri Guru Granth Sahib and read with esteemed honour. He was born in year 1188 A.D. in Pakpattan now in Pakistan. He preached that we are sinners. We must confess our sins, pray for forgiveness by merciful God, love Him with heart, soul and mind, Angel of Israel is the Lord of Judgment. Read verses as below.
FARIDA JE TAE MARE MUKKIAN, TU NA MARIN GHUM.
APNARRHE GHAR JAIEY PAIR TINAH DE CHUM.
BABA FARID says if someone hits you with a blow, do not return it back but kiss his feet and go home.
It is the message of Jesus “But I tell you not to resist an evil person but who ever slap you on right cheek, turn the other to him. (Mathew 5:39)
FARIDA BHANNI GHARRHI SUWANARRHI, TUTI NAGAR LAJJU,
ISRAEL FARISHTEY KE GHAR NATTHI AJJU.
He says, Time of worldly enjoyment is finished and relationship between body and soul has broken. The soul has rushed to the house of “Angel of Israel”. (Why the soul should run to the house of the Angel of Israel, because He is the Lord of Judgment. He judges and gives heaven or hell to the souls.)
SAINT KABIR ji Coming to Saint Kabir an untouchable Saint of India. His verses are also placed in Sri Guru Granth Sahib, the Holy Scripture of Sikhism and read with great reverence. He lived in 14th century in Varanasi, a prominent pilgrimage of Hinduism. He deeply accepted Jesus as only Saviour. Read his verses below.
GURU GOBIND DONO KHARRHE KIS KE LAGUN PAEY
BALIHARI GURU AAPNE JIS SATGUR DIYA MILAEY
He sees the vision of the Master standing beside Heavenly Father. He is in delusion and unable to decide, whose feet he should touch first. It is the same vision as seen by Stephen: -
But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. (Acts 7:55, 56)
See more. Jesus said unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. (Mathew 26:64)
Lord Jesus Christ became a bridge between fallen human race and the creator as sin had broken the relationship. Only through Him we can meet the Heavenly Father. Kabir solved the duality of his mind and decided to touch the feet of the Master who sacrificed His blood and opened the way for the fallen world to meet Heavenly Father. (Read John 14:6, 7)
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him. (John 14:6, 7)
GAGAN DAMAMA BAJIO, PARRHIO NISSANE GHAO.
KHET JO MANDEO SOORMA, AB JHOOJHAN KO DAO.
SOORA SO PAHCHANIEY, JO LARRHE DEEN KE HET.
PURJA PURJA KATE MAREY, KABHUN NA CHHADEY KHET
Kabir says. That he saw another vision. There was a loud sound of trumpet in the sky. Holy Bible gives the same vision to John. Read the book of revelation.
I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day and I heard behind me a loud voice of a trumpet, saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last”. (Rev 2:10, 11)
Second part of the first line of the verse, Kabir says the target got hit grievous wound leading Satan to be put in the lake of fire. Book of Revelation says,
“Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Rev 21:14, 15)
Second line expresses that the harvest is ready and he who joins the harvest is righteous. This vision too does not literally express the harvesting of the crop from the field but carries hidden meaning. It is about the end of the world. (Read Mathew chapter 13)
Field is the world; harvest the end of the age and harvesters the angels of God. As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send His angels, and they will pick up weeds and everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace. (Mathew chapter 13)
Last two lines express who is brave soldier? Kabir said the brave soldier is he who fights for the needs of poor, the discarded, and the marginalized people such as the out castes, untouchables, sinners lepers, blind, paralyzed and laden with heavy load by the so called religious people of the world. It is difficult to find any match in the human history to compare with Jesus for His sacrifice. While He was in human body on earth, He loved sinners, out castes, untouchables, lepers, blind, paralyzed, laden with heavy load and people bound under evil spirits. He cured sickness with His touch or commanding voice. Even now His followers cure the sick people and exhort the evil spirits in His name. He calls us: -
“Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. (Mathew11: 28)
No one dies for the righteous one but He sacrificed His holy blood on the cross to save the sinners of the world. Can one find braver person than Jesus? Most Holy, sacrificed himself for the cause of the lost, the last and he least but did not discard the war against Satan. Lord saved the sinners without compromise with Satan. Even today, religious fanatics burn His disciples alive. The followers of the Lord do not compromise with evil but suffer for His cause.
He said: - If the world hates you keep in mind that it hated me. If you belong to the world it would love you as its own. As it is you do not belong to the world but I have chosen you out of the world that is why the world hates you. (Mathew 15:18, 19).
So we have to face the persecution like warriors of the Lord without compromise.

AB MAN ULTE SANATAN HUAA TABH JANIA JAB JIWAT MUA
SAINT KABIR. State of his mind has returned to original purity and innocence like a child. He returns to the beginning, the time of creation. This expression leads him to the Holy Word of God. The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us. (John chapter 1) It happened when he could know Him, Who has risen from the dead. Who rose from the dead? It is Lord Jesus.
“Then go quickly and tell His disciples; He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you to Galilee, there you will see Him now.” (Mathew 28:7)
He spoke to His disciples after His resurrection as below: -
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. And teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age.

MAIN NAHIN MARBO, MARBO SANSARA.
AB MOHE MILIA JIWANHARA
SAINT KABIR. Let the world die but I will not die, as I have been blessed with eternal life by the source of life. Who is the source of life? It is Jesus. Read the book of John below: -
“I am the resurrection and the life. He, who believes in Me, will live, even though he dies and whoever lives and believes in me will never die”. (John 11:25, 26)
Read him as bride and Lord as Groom
SUR NAR MUNE JANE KAUTIK AYE
KOTEE TETEES UJJANAN
KAHE KABIR MOHE VIAH CHALE HAIN
PURKH EK BHAGWANA
SAINT KABIR says. Uncountable Angels have come in His marriage procession. Lord the God Son of Man, my bridegroom is taking me as bride as He has chosen me and I am married to Him. He is fully God and fully Man.
Heavenly Marriage Procession
7. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come and his wife hath made herself ready. 8. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. 9. And he said unto me, Write, Blessed are they, which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said unto me, these are the true sayings of God. 10. And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. 11. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and true, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13. And he was clothed with vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14. And the armies, which were in heaven, followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15. And out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. (Rev 19:7-16)
Holy Word of God says that the souls chosen and blessed by the Lord are bride and Lord is the groom. All such souls confess their sins; pray for His mercy upon them, as He is only Savior. He can forgive and wash their sins as He died for saving the sinners of the world.
“I desire mercy, and not sacrifice, for I came not to call the righteous, but sinners”. (Mathew 9:13)
He will come on the white horse as bridegroom accompanied by Angels of Heaven, to take the bride.
Kabir ji says that he made the man in His own image
AETE AURAT MARDAN SAJE,
EH SABH ROOP TUMARE
Kabir says all men and women Thou created are in Thy image. It contradicts the theory that different castes have come up from different limbs of Prajapati. Sri Guru Ravidas ji too testifies Kabir’s version about creation of man in His own image, as it is the truth.
Sri Guru RAVIDAS ji He lived in Varanasi at the time of Kabir and was also an untouchable saint belonging to cobbler caste. He suffered big hate and humiliation in the hands of Hindus for his low caste. Both Saint Kabir and Saint Ravidas in their old age were visited by Guru Nanak Dev ji while he was young.
Ravidas ji entered into worship with belief that he was created in the image of God. His verses of praise are also placed in Sri Guru Granth Sahib.
In the book of Genesis God created man on sixth day in His own image.
Genesis 1:27, 28. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created male and female he created them. 28. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.
First verse of Saint Ravidas in Sri Guru Granth Sahib confirms his being in the image of Most High, GOD. He Proclaims: -
TOHI MOHI, MOHI TOHI ANTER KAISA
KANAK KATTAK JAL TRANG JAISA.
LORD, Thou made me in Thy image, as there is no inconsistency between Thee and me or me and Thee. My relationship with Thee is like the relationship of ornament with gold or wave with water. Thou created me (Man) as holy as Thou are. He testifies the truth Kabir had reveled. He confessed man has fallen as a sinner and He is the emancipator. Read following verse.
JAU PAE HUM NA PAP KARANTA AHE ANNANTA
PATIT PAVAN NAM KAISE HUNTA.
He confessed that, he (Man) is sinner. He said O, Eternal God; had I (Man) not committed sin. How Thee would have been named as Savior of sinners. Who is called the Savior? Let us read Holy Word of God.
Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (I Timothy 2:3-6)
Going through the verses of Sri Guru Ravidas ji and Saint Kabir ji, we observe their very close intimate relationship with God. They always speak to God in deep love from within like a son speaking to his father. For growing such deep relationship, He wishes us to be holy as He is holy.
Accordingly, as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love: 5. having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will. Ephesians 1:4,5.
Sri Guru Arjun Dev ji (fifth Guru of Sikhism)
Guru Sahib’s most praiseworthy service is preservation of the devotional writings of all saints as he compiled Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji (Holy scripture of Sikhism). It is reservoir of wisdom for mankind.
PARMESAR DITTA BANNA DUKH ROG KA BERHA BHANNA
ANNAD KAREH NAR NARI HARI HARI KIRPA DHARI
God gave His Son, who broke the yoke of pains and sicknesses of life. All men and women enjoy the blissfulness for mercy of the Most High, God the Lord. It is in praise of Most Holy and Most Merciful God for His love and mercy; the mankind is overflowing with Supreme Bliss.
Read about the Day of Judgment. Guru Sahib said that Angel of Israel confines sinners for purpose of Judgment. He views their track record of life for judgment.
PAP KREDARH SAR PAR MUTTHEY
AZRAAEEL FARRHE FARRH KUTTHE
DOZAK PAEY SIRJANHARE
LEKHA MANGE BANIA
Men, from top to bottom are drenched in sin throughout their life. Angel of Israel has caught and confined them. He is the Creator and He has put them in the fire of hell. He demands the account of blessings He had given to the man, that how man used the gifts of talents in his lifetime. We are accountable for use or misuse of His gifts at the time of judgment. Like Baba Farid, Guru Sahib testifies that the “Angel of Israel” is the Lord of judgment. Sri Guru Arjun Dev ji has used name of Israel or Angel of Israel, a number of time as the Lord of judgment. In Sri Guru Granth Saheb there are eight references of the Angel of Israel (Jesus). This name has been used by Baba Farid ji (Once) Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji (Twice) Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji (Five times) certifying that He is the Lord of judgment and He forgives the sins.
JUDGMENT DAY
Rev 15:3,4,5 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. 4. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? For thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee for thy judgments are made manifest. 5. And after that I looked, and, behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened:
THEREAFTER
Vision of Heaven to Sri Guru Ravidas ji
BEGUMPURA SAHAR KO NAU

Saint Ravidas gets this vision of the house of Lord, “Heaven”. All these visions come to His Saints only because they have pure mind. Such visions are the blessings of the Most Holy and Most Merciful Father to the Saints so that message of the Father could reach His people to turn from sinful life and seek His blessings.
The meaning of the vision is as
BEGUMPURA SAHAR KO NAU
DOOKH ANDOH NAHIN TIH THAU
The name of the city (His Kingdom) is ‘Begampura’ City of Joy, city of absolute peace ‘SHALOM’ very often Jesus used this word. Saint Ravidas is talking about ‘NEW JERUSALEM’. Newly created Heaven and Earth. It is free from all pains of life as there is no place for pains in new creation.
Read Holy Word of God (Rev 3:12,13). He that overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go out thence no more: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God, and mine own new name. 13. He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit said to the churches.
Here Church does not mean church building but the followers and chosen people of the Lord.
NA TASVEES KHIRAJU NA MALLU

There is no investigation or inquiry, no burden of taxes, no ownership of property. City of no fear, no accusation, no deplorable condition of life.

Now I love that land dearly as there is always peace my brethren (Shalom)

I, Ravidas proclaim that I am relieved of being in the bondage of cobbler caste as I have He (lord) is my co-citizen and friend.

Legacy of Ambedkar

Legacy of Ambedker

Dr Ambedker passed away on 6th Dec1956, giving the sufferers a message of victory like St Paul “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith”. Timothy 4:7.

His fight against the monster of casteism was unparallel in the history since creation. We read in the Holy Bible, how God planned the liberation of Israelis from the bondage of Egypt, using His servant Moses for the noble cause. Similarly He used Ambedker to liberate the untouchables of India from the shackles of satanic religions. In case of Israelites there was no religious sanction for their oppression where as Hindus are equipped with religious sanction through their scriptures. There is similarity in the two happenings that God liberated Israelites from the bondage of Egypt but they still loved servitude like the untouchables who still love the oppression under Hinduism.

Ambedker himself had tasted the bitterness of being untouchable so he fought against the system of castes. He dedicated his total life for the cause of oppressed classes of India. Lastly he concluded,

“To reform the Hindu society is neither our aim nor our field of action. Our aim is to gain freedom. We have nothing to do with anything else. If we can gain our freedom by conversion, why should we shoulder the responsibility of reforming the Hindu religion? And why should we sacrifice our strength.

The object of our movement is to achieve social freedom for the untouchables. It is equally true that freedom cannot be secured without conversion”.
His writings. We can classify his writings in three categories such as

(a) For political Activists. “What Congress and Gandhi have done to the Untouchables?”

(b) For Social Activists. “Annihilation of Caste”

(c) For Religious Activists. “Buddha and his Dhamma”.

Ambedker identified that untouchability was an integral part of the caste system rather its very essence. And caste is the foundation on which Hindu religion stands. So all those persons like Vivekananda, Gandhi etc., who wanted to reform Hinduism, failed because Hinduism is not amenable to reform. One cannot reform Hinduism keeping the caste system intact. If you abolish caste, whole edifice of Hinduism collapses, because Hinduism is nothing but caste.

Gandhi failed because he wanted to abolish untouchability keeping caste as it was. He proclaimed that Caste System is the soul of Hinduism. This statement he gave not out of his ignorance, he knew that caste system is a crime against the humanity and divinity but he was fearful of Hindu fundamentalists. Gandhi knew the curse of caste system well but he did not like to put his hand into the beehive and get bitten. He wanted to reform Hinduism without touching the privileges that caste confers on upper castes.

Ignoring his meritorious services to the nation, Gandhi gained better recognition being a Mahatma. Fortunately the bare facts are surfacing on the international platform and world is able to understand the efforts of Ambedker for elimination the curse of caste system. He wanted to build a healthy nation whereas Gandhi and other reformers tried to strengthen Hinduism not India as a country.

Ambedker’s book “Annihilation of Caste” is his speech, had to be delivered in 1936, in Lahore, in a conference, organized by “Jat Pat Todak Mandal”. The said Mandal comprised of all high caste people under the leadership of Gandhi. Dr Ambedker had to preside over the conference and this book was his presidential address. The so called, “Jat Pat Todak Mandal” suggested Dr Ambedker to modify his speech. Ambedker refused to oblige them. Conference was postponed and dropped afterwards to evade dynamic speech of Dr Ambedker

Through this speech, Dr Ambedker had put the so-called holy scriptures of Hindus to the acidic test. He said that until and unless we deny the sanctity of the scriptures, which justify castes, we couldn’t get rid of castes system.

Gandhi and his coterie never wanted to demolish the religious status of the said scriptures. Later on Ambedker himself, publicly burnt Manu Simiriti. His burning of Manu Simiriti was a revolutionary step to lead the untouchables not to follow Hindu scriptures but to discard the religion of injustice and come out of its fold.

As father of Constitution of India, Ambedker demolished the caste system declaring India “Sovereign Socialist Secular Democratic Republic and to secure to its citizens Justice, social, economic and political, Liberty of thought, expression, belief, faith and worship, Equality of status and of opportunity; and to promote among them all Fraternity assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation”.

India became independent, in 1947. Now we are in the year 2011. That means 63 years have passed but we have failed to meet with the aims and objectives of the Constitution of India.

Why it is? It is a big question. It is not the failure of the constitution, but it has happened because the Brahmins have virtually dominated over the governance of the country. They have viewed the constitution, ensuring green pasture for the Brahmin.

Even today, Manu Simiriti has its edge over the constitution of India. Brahmins have not domination over the bureaucracy only but except BSP, Brahmins head all political parties. It is not an incidence but a fact that none of the non Brahmin Prime Minister could complete full term since the independence of the country keeping aside the exception of Dr Manmohan Singh. Gulzari Lal Nanda, Ch Charan Singh, Chander Shekhar, Gujral, Devgauda, V P Singh have been the non Brahmin Prime Ministers and none of them could survive for the full term. On the other hand Narsimha Rao and Atal Bihari Vajpai both Brahmins, completed full term despite their governments in minority.

Even in crimes, Brahmins have left every one behind. Recently a good number of Sharmas have been booked for rapes, murderers and burning of women. There could be no major racket where Brahmins had not played prominent role.

Brahmins, the most privileged class has kept other upper castes to be with them on the issue of castes. Resultantly there has been no change in the thinking of other upper caste too. Not only there is no change in their thinking but also there has not been an honest attempt to bring social change in the country. Today, it is educated class from upper castes that keep the caste system alive to protect their privileges intact.

Apart from Brahmin, Why other upper castes do not give up caste system? They do not do, because caste helps them to exploit their fellowmen better. Caste system carries the theological sanction as blessing from Hindu scriptures. In jungle law, every strong animal devour the weak animal so is the state of Hinduism. For this wild law, Hinduism has the blessings of its sacred scriptures. That is why in India wealth is getting accumulated in the hands of top 10% to 15% of the upper castes and the rest are joining below poverty line lot.

Yet nowhere there is public debate on the merits and demerits of caste system, not even among our university eggheads. If someone raises an issue of exploitation of lower castes, his voice is dubbed under caste prejudice. The vast group of untouchables, Dalits and other oppressed minorities of India will have to cope with fundamentalism and remain slave to the 15% upper caste till eternity.

Now the caste system is further being strengthen and glorified by adding it through the population census. Though there is no chance that India may get rid of this evil design of Satan but this attempt of Manuvadis dominating the governance of India will further strengthen the Caste System.

It is further unfortunate that the sufferers of this hateful discrimination have started loving the slavery and do not want to break the yoke of satanic system.
Ambedkar gave a brighter solution, a hope of liberation. He suggested.
“I tell you very specifically; religion is for man and not man for religion. To get human treatment, convert yourselves.
CONVERT –
1. For getting organized.
2. For becoming strong.
3. For securing equality.
4. For getting liberty.
5. For that your domestic life may be happy”.

UNTOUCHABLES

Untouchables

An Interview
Chief Editor Ambedkar Times
Rev Dr Jasjit Singh IAS (Retired)

Jasjit

Hi brother Prem you are welcome to our Church today. Our Sunday Worship is just to start and I wish you could join please.

Editor

Yes of course I will join but I have purposely come to interview you on your conversion.

Jasjit

Yes we will talk to you after the service.
After the service

Editor

Brother Jasjit you have come up from the highest Civil Service of India and the message of your conversion carries a weight so will you please like to discuss the issue of conversion.

Jasjit

Mr Editor, If a person from untouchable community adopts any religion of the world it is not the conversion but adoption because the untouchables (Ati-Shudras) have no place among the Hindus.

Hindu’s Varna Vyastha has four Varnas such as:

Brahmans are born of the mouth of god, Kshatriyas born of the arms of god, Vaishyas born out of the belly of god and Shudras born out of feet of god. There no place below the feet so Hindus believe that untouchables have not been created by any god out of their 330 Million gods.

Fortunately it is not the untouchables of India but the total population of the world outside these four Varnas has not been created by any god and they are untouchables.

‘Manu’ the Hindu’s law giver declared us the subjects deserving hate. The scriptures of any religion are the authority over the lives of its followers and the scriptures proclaim that we must be hated and discriminated. Hindus should not have any social interaction with us.

I will like to speak on the conversation between Dr Ambedkar and Mahatma Gandhi, Ambedkar asked Gandhi to condemn the scripture that sanctify the system of castes but Gandhi replied that the System of Varnas/ Castes is the soul of Hinduism. If we dismiss the castes entire religion gets condemned. (read the book Annihilation of Castes written by Ambedkar).

If Hindus claim that I was not created by any one of Hindu god, I do acknowledge it with honor and I love to accept that GOD created me.

I give a general call to my brethren to discard the Satanic religion you are blindly following because you are not Hindus. There is no place for you in Hinduism. Rejoice with me that we are created by GOD not by gods.

In my case it is not conversion but “Home Coming” as I am created by God that too in His own image. (Gen 1:26) Join me in celebration that we the people of God called Untouchables are created by God in His own image.

Editor

But brother Singh you have come up from a Sikh background and Sikhism does not accept the Caste System.

Jasjit

Mr. Editor, I do accept that there is no place for castes in Sikhism but Sikhs have refused to discard this evils of Hindus. Because their roots are in the Hinduism and they are not willing to get away with a potent tool for exploitation of my people.
You see they have divided the Sikh Temples on the basis of castes. You will find Ravidasia Gurudwaras, Mazbi Sikh Gurudwaras, Ramgarhia Gurudwara. And high caste people do not visit the Gurudwaras of lower castes people. The element of hate for the low caste stops them entering Ravidasia Gurudwaras even in California.

I see in California, high castes are much more cautious of the pollution with interaction with low castes. A tug of war is going on between Jatt Community and Ravidasia Community everywhere in the world. You will find a message of pride written on the vehicles “Putt Jattan De” in High Caste Gurudwara’s parking and “Putt Chamaran De” in Ravidasia Gurudwaras parkings.

Whereas even Jatt community does not fall in the bracket of Varnas and the difference between these communities is only for land holdings. No member of Jatt community has ever worn the sacred thread of Hindus and even now Hindus will not permit them to wear.

Even a country like United States of America has failed to save its free atmosphere from the pollution of caste discrimination.

Remember Ambedkar said about Hindus that where ever they go they carry the infection of Castes. Hindus and the religions within the fold of Hinduism will never discard the tower of babble called (system of castes) because it is the soul of Hinduism and Hinduism will die without caste system.

I hope I have talked enough about my adoption and you must carry this message to the untouchables that they must get themselves free from this bondage of Castes and discard the devilish religions.

Jesus is calling them:

Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Mathew 11:28)

Editor

Thank you very much brother for giving a wonder message of enlightenment that untouchables must discard the shackles of bondage and get eternal liberation through Jesus.

This world is not mine.......

We all say that this world is not mine and I will be in heaven with the lord forever.How true is this?
Search your heart.Many a times we are particular about our blessings and we want the lord should give us good health and prosperity.
Prosperity is there for all believers and do we know why this prosperity?
Let me tell you.The lord blesses us so that we can take the gospel to the next level or unreached areas.What we are doing?
I know a lady who once spent most of her time in church and the church fed her and had many spiritual blessings but no material blessing.Then some 10 years back she was married to a businessman and she started seeing the material blessings also.Now she stopped praying and started to mingle with non believers and the spiritual blessings faded away.Some times back when I asked about her prayer times the reply was shocking.Her answer was whenever she starts praying her husband starts fighting with her.So she stopped praying...how miserable...
Are you in this same position?My humble request come back to the first love...
Remember if you are living for the world and perishing your soul what is the use....Always remember that this 
This world is not ours
