God is the Source of LIFE. But where is this God if there are millions of other gods/allahs?
There are only 33 mln of allahs in India!
Let’s listen now to the question of my brother Ibrahim Rasheed and I will answer to his question and to the question above:
Ibrahim Rasheed said:
Most of the Prophets of Allah SWT were given the ability to prophesize and do miracles. Let’s find out what Bible has to do with prophecies and miracles. We will talk about prophecies in their context as per the verses in the Bible.
John 7:38 (New International Version)
Here Bible Jesus says (as scripture has said) if he was right in saying that scripture said this can you point out in the Old Testament scriptures where its located? In this statement, we have to have a fulfillment that was a fulfillment of–what? How could there be a fulfillment of scripture when the OT never mentioned it (as far as I know, maybe you know better) ??????
Jeremiah 2 (New King James Version)
God’s Case Against Israel
1 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2 “Go and cry in the hearing of Jerusalem, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD:
“ I remember you,
4 Hear the word of the LORD, O house of Jacob and all the families of the house of Israel. 5 Thus says the LORD:
“ What injustice have your fathers found in Me,
“ And against your children’s children I will bring charges.
here is another verse which is about such water. Let’s read it:
Revelation 21 (New King James Version)
All Things Made New
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. 2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. 4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
9 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, “Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb’s wife.” 10 And he carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, 11 having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. 12 Also she had a great and high wall with twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates, and names written on them, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel: 13 three gates on the east, three gates on the north, three gates on the south, and three gates on the west.
22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
The River of Life
1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5 There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.
6 Then he said to me, “These words are faithful and true.” And the Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to show His servants the things which must shortly take place.
12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”
18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Do you know what does it mean: “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”???
Brother, you said:
Look, God Jesus said:
“I and My Father are ONE.” John 10:30
Here its clear that Lord says. 13. For my people have committed two evils:
God was called the Fountain of living water in the Old Testament (OT).
So, I told you that Jesus claimed by this statement and in conversation with woman at the well in John 4 that He is God and equal to the Father!
Ibrahim salam, I LOVE what you said:
“I would appreciate you do not kick the father god out with your reasoning.”
5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, 6 who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, 7 but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. 9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:5-11
20 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. 23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming. 24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. 27 For “He has put all things under His feet.” But when He says “all things are put under Him,” it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. 28 Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all. 1 Corinthians 15:20-28
Let’s read it in Arabic:
Brother, look what Jesus wanted to say:
“Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” John 7:38
It means: Ibrahim, if you will believe in God Jesus (as the Holy Scripture has said) then the rivers of living water will flow from within you. Because God (Ruh Al Quds) will live within you, inside of your heart. Because God said that many centuries before the birth of ‘Isa on earth that he –God- is a Fountain of Living Water.
But why then Jesus claimed to be GOD!??? Equal to God by calling Himself the Living Water?
“I and My Father are ONE.” John 10:30
Now brother let’s read this prophecy about God Jesus:
So, here we can see that one of the names of Jesus will be ETERNAL Father! How is it possible that the Son bears name Father? Or bears name MIGHTY God?
Look another verse about God Jesus:
So again we see that He is the King and the Lord.
Another prophecy for you Ibrahim:
Daniel 7:13-14 “I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven One like a Son of Man was coming, and He came up to the Ancient of Days And was presented before Him. “And to Him was given dominion, Glory and a kingdom, That all the peoples, nations, and men of every language might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which will not pass away; and His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed.
Brother, you said:
Narrated Abu ‘Amir or Abu Malik Al-Ash’ari: that he heard the Prophet saying, “From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful. And there will be some people who will stay near the side of a mountain and in the evening their shepherd will come to them with their sheep and ask them for something, but they will say to him, ‘Return to us tomorrow.’ Allah will destroy them during the night and will let the mountain fall on them, and He will transform the rest of them into monkeys and pigs and they will remain so till the Day of Resurrection.”
Sahih Bukhari 7:69:494
Narrated ‘Amr bin Maimun: During the pre-lslamic period of ignorance I saw a she-monkey surrounded by a number of monkeys. They were all stoning it, because it had committed illegal sexual intercourse. I too, stoned it along with them.
Sahih Bukhari 5:58:188
God Jesus said,
“I am the way and the truth and the life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Arabs and Muslims,
be SAVED by God RIGHT NOW!
Brothers, Islam and the Bible call Jesus as Kalimat-Ullah- WORD of Allah!
Will you reject God by rejecting His SON?
Look if you will reject Son, it means you dont believe in His Father Allah. It means you are AGAINST Allah.
Islam came later after prophecies of Allah already existed that His Son Jesus will save the world from sins. So, what is Islam? ONE of religions. Look brother, there are millions religions and all they worship millions of gods which are called by God of Ibrahim as IDOLS.
Way for people worshiping idols is hell. Islam is among them. Why? Because Islam makes God of our father Ibrahim a LIAR by claiming that there is NO Son of God. Islam is closing eyes of Muslims to the words of Allah. Which man on the earth is able to BEAR INIQUITIES of the world? Sins of people? How SERVANT canJUSTIFY many people? It is impossible for a man. But only for God! We worship perfect God. He DIED instead on us. His name is the most perfect – Jesus….Isa Ibn Allah…Isa Allah…Issa Al Massih. And He is God of our father Ibrahim. Turn from sins to HIM and LIVE eternally as son of God!
Be saved right NOW
How to LIVE with God Jesus?
2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, PERFECTING HOLINESS IN THE FEAR OF GOD.
Hebrews 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may SERVE GOD ACCEPTABLY WITH REVERENCE AND GODLY FEAR
Fellowship with God

You can be forgiven of ALL your sins!
You can be
adopted by God
THROUGH your Faith
in His Son Jesus.
Can you call Jesus the Son of God? Is He God in your life? Have you given Him absolute control of your life and future?If not, do is right NOW!
Pray now to the LORD and accept His forgiveness of all your sins through FAITH in His Son – God Jesus Christ!
Pray God right now And be saved!
God is bringing Judgement. Return of the Lord Jesus and His Judgement day should make difference in our behavior. Live your best in purity. Be excited about meeting with the Lord. You should anxiously await with joiful anticipation of the Lord’s return. If your hearts is filled with anticipation, excitement and joy, it indicates that you are walking with the Lord. If you are NOT sure and confident that if you would die today you would go to Heaven, it means you need to get right with God. If you never said- YES- to Jesus, do it today! If you have fallen away from the Lord, come back to Him today.
We will close with prayers: Father, we believe that Jesus is coming again. We believe we need to be ready. And Lord I am praying about any person who is reading my message and if they dont have confidence that they are ready for Your return, help them to come to You today and get right with You now. Amen.
First, recognise brother, that you are sinner. Be sorry for your sin. And ask God to forgive you right now. The way as we do that TROUGH PRAYER. That’s how we communicate with God.I’d like to lead you in prayer. If you want Christ to forgive your sins. If you want to know that when you will die you will go to Heaven then pray this prayer with me right now:
God, I know I am a sinner. And I am sorry for what I have done. And I turn from my sin now and ask You to forgive me. Thank You that Your Son Jesus Christ died on the cross and shed His blood for me. Be my Savior and my Lord. And be my friend. I want to follow You from this day forward. Fill me with Your Spirit. And help me to be Your disciple. Thank You for accepting me. Thank You for forgiving me. Thank You that I am now YOURS. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
If you sincerely asked God to forgive you then WELCOME to the family of God. Now you are adopted by God. Now you bacame His son and His inheritance. His angels have written your name in the Book of Life. And you have the BRIGHT FUTURE.
God Jesus said:
“I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word
and believes him
who sent mehas eternal life and will not be condemned;
he has crossed over from death to life.John 5:24
Walk with God and live eternally Arab nation! Amen.
Rev. 4:8 “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.”
Brothers, God Jesus is COMING BACK to us to the earth. Be prepared to LIVE with Him and not to die without Him! Repent and make your ways straight. To make your ways straight, then, please the Lord in all you do by BELIEVING in His Son Jesus Christ.
Turn away from a life of sin to a life of righteousness (Rom. 12:21).
This is the way of peace (Luke 1:79).
It is also the way to prosperity, blessings, answered prayer, joy and every good thing (Prov. 13:21; 1 John 3:22; Heb. 13:21).
If you prayed this simple prayer aboveor if you need more information orstill have questions about who Jesus is or if you want to believe in God Jesus then please email me and contact me (contacts are below) because we should be together. God called us as believers in Him or CHURCH.

I’d like to add some details on this. We expect most of the followers to be:-
(1) The transgressing Jews
(2) Generally atheists
(3) The Weak in faith
We are of the opinion that many Christians will become Muslims during Al-Mahdi’s expedition (before Dajjal officially appears). The Christians who did not embrace Islam will be in alliance with the Jews and receive orders from them, both financial and military. We consider them part and parcel of the Dajjal army and, for this reason, you hear Muslims say the followers of the Anti-Christ are from the Jews (and allies).
Thank you for your answer
Mathew 24 vs 36
Isnt this sort of contradictory to trinity. Ithought (according to your beilief) Jesus was God, if he was than he would obviuosly know when the day of judgment is. But he clearly says in that verse that he doesnt know but only the father (God) does. Doesnt that prove that jesus isnt God.
I await for your reply.
Jesus isn’t God the Father, that is correct. He is the son of God. The son of God is also divine. Trinity concept is often mis-represented. God has given Jesus authority and power, such that he is also divine and “God like”. This does not mean that Jesus knows everything God does, although he can speak to him directly & obtain answers – they do have different “brains”. It may also be the case that God hasn’t decided on an exact time yet, and will choose at his leisure.
So basically there is God, Jesus, and the holy spirirt. All do God’s will and are divine by their implicit association with God the father – one is his son, the other a spirit specially sent by God. Each of them plays a different but important role in the destiny of mankind. God gave Jesus authority that no one may go to the father, but first through him.
The trinity isn’t explicitly in the bible as far as i know, but the concept is probably still true. Jeusus does talk about God, himself and the holy spirit though – so that is trinity-like. I’m not too bothered about how the bible is interpreted in this instance. All I really care about, as a Christian, is that Jesus is the son of God, has been given authority over man, and is the key to spiritual salvation.
I guess the key thing about having the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, is that because they all work for the Father and have been given authority by him, praying to Jesus is as good as a prayer to the father himself. So in that repect they can be regarded as “one”. They are also extensions of the father, in one way or another.
I suppose because Jesus has authority over us, he is our God. He was also divine before he came to earth, like God the Father said, he is his only son!
I leave the trinity to the academics and scholars, as whatever the outcome – it will have no meaningful implications for my beliefs.

Re: Al Mahdi
The signs Accompanying the Mahdi
Tradition clearly relates that there will be various signs before the appearance of the Mahdi. Many reports specify civil wars, calamities and other signs which precede him. whenever it is thought that these troubles have come to an end, they will start up again and spread and intensify untill there is no Arab house they do not enter and no muslim they do not effect. there will be violent deaths, intense disputes and general affliction to the point that the living will envy the dead. A huge fire will appear from the east which can be seen in the sky a distance of three days’ journey away. Sixty liars will arise, each of whom will be claim to be sent by Allah. One of the towns of syria will be swallowed up by the earth and a star will rise in the east which will be as luminous as the moon. Redness will appear in the sky. There are many other specific signs mentioned in tradition.
Following the occurance of these signs the Imam Al-Madhi will emerge and rally his forces to help this community to remove their distress, through his sincere desire to rid the lands from domination of the impious, sinful people who rule them. He will defend all rightous people against the unbelievers and tyrants. His troops will be victorious and the people of the heaven and earth, birds and wild animals will rejoice in his rule.
Another important point:

Jazaak Allauh Khayran for letting us know. I missed it on the news for some reason. I guess soon we can begin the 3 month count down. As a further development, someone has been selected for a role, he was given 2 things, (1) the ‘Ma3aanee Al Qur’an‘ (‘Meanings fo the Qur’an‘) and (2) a sword.

You said: “By the way is your Mahdi Mr. Gulam Mirza???” I explained you what the Bible said: your Islamic Mahdi is the ANTI-CHRIST in the Bible! How can I answer to your question if for me it is like if you would ask me “By the way is your anti-christ Mr. Gulam Mirza? I do not have ‘my anti-christ”. The anti-christ described in the holy Bible is Islamic mahdi. But WHY the Holy Scripture which existed BEFORE Islam and even before the existence of the word ‘islam’ gives us such prophecies? Where is God of our father Ibrahim? He is in His WORDS said before Islam! Study these prophecies, look for God and He will be found by YOU. Because we do not tell you about any invented stories but we STATE you what Allah said on the pages of the Bible.
Ibrahim, if you will check my profile you will see that I am CHRISTIAN. You are so angry I see but WHY? Please COMPARE the words of God said BEFORE Islam and these words:
Can you just imagine brother, that if you reject the words of God quoted by me below you REJECT Allah?
These words of God said for us to REVEAL us purpose of God and the way of God leading to salvation and eternal life.

let me discuss with you and all my brothers such statements:
“Brothers why Mahdi is a violent person in Islam who is going to KILL and FIGHT for Islam? Brothers, who is Jesus Christ in Islam and in the Holy scripture called Bible? Is it the same personality? And who should we all believe in? Why do we Christians claim that ‘Isa (Jesus) of the Qur’an is a product of fable, imagination and ignorance?! We know that when Muslims venerate this ‘Isa, they have someone different in mind from the Yeshua or Jesus of the Bible and of history!!!! Because Jesus Christ described in the Holy Scripture which existed BEFORE Islam is different from violent ‘islamic jesus’. God said in this scripture that He is LOVE. He cannt be killer and love at the same time! Teaching of God Jesus is full of compassion, mercy, forgiveness of sins of every sinner and love until His death on the cross. Now WHY then Islamic picture of Jesus is so different from what we KNOW about God reading His words said through prophets? Do you remember, brothers, the crowd arrests Jesus, though one of Jesus’ disciples tries to stop them by using a sword to cut off the ear of one of the men in the crowd. The Scripture specifies that it had been Simon Peter who had cut off the ear of Malchus, a servant of Caiaphas, the high priest. And we see that Jesus healed the wound. John, Matthew, and Luke state that Jesus criticized the violent act, insisting that they do not resist Jesus’ arrest. In Matthew, Jesus says all who live by the sword shall die by the sword. Why Jesus BEFORE existence of the word Islam clearly said that He is against any violence but why then Islamic Jesus is killer????!!!!! The answer is evident: one of Scriptures is FALSE. One of religions is FALSE. One of the ways is FALSE and leading everyone to DESTRUTION and HELL FIRE. So, as you all Muslims claim to be reasonable then let’s analyze today Islamic Scripture and words of God to FIND the TRUE God! Because this GOD BEFORE the foundation of ISLAM claimed to be GOD of LOVE! And there is no such God of LOVE in ‘peaceful’ religion called Islam! Let’s analyse Islamic Scripture today:
Islam claims that Jesus will come back to fight for Islam.
Narrated AbuHurayrah: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace be upon him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him. Abu Dawud 37:4310
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, surely (Jesus,) the son of Mary will soon descend amongst you and will judge mankind justly (as a Just Ruler); he will break the Cross and kill the pigs and there will be no Jizya (i.e. taxation taken from non Muslims). Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it, and a single prostration to Allah (in prayer) will be better than the whole world and whatever is in it.” Abu Huraira added “If you wish, you can recite (this verse of the Holy Book): — ‘And there is none Of the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him (i.e Jesus as an Apostle of Allah and a human being) Before his death. And on the Day of Judgment He will be a witness Against them.” (4.159) (See Fateh Al Bari, Page 302 Vol 7)
Sahih Bukhari 4:55,65
Let me quote these words again:

A “claimed inspiration” is not God’s word, it is the word of the “inspired guy” who wrote it. Every Tom, D-ick or Harry can claim god inspired him. Like the thousands of men who claimed divinity in India and elsewhere.
If this is not the fact then would appreciate further explanation.

The 4 Gospels are the “ahaadith a-sahiiha” (the correct traditions) on the life of Jesus. In the law courts at least two witnesses were needed to prove a truth. We have the three Gospels on the life of Jesus (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) which testify to Jesus’ life and sayings.

“Why are You Running Away from Me?”
December 7, 2010
Nalika Kadam could see the fear in the face of the woman who was washing her dishes at the well. As she walked closer, the lady suddenly hurried to finish before Nalika could reach her. She quickly gathered her things and began to hasten away when Nalika called after her.
“Why are you running away from me?” Nalika asked the lady.
But Nalika already knew the answer. Almost a year ago, Nalika’s erratic behavior scared the entire village. Without warning, Nalika became possessed by an evil spirit—causing her to act like a lunatic. She bit people. She hurled stones and chased them with sticks and iron rods. She walked around naked, throwing off every piece of clothing and not allowing anyone to cover her up. Once, she even threw her nursing infant to the ground.
Her mental state worsened to the point of uncontrollability. Nalika’s relatives kept her chained to a post for their protection and for her own.
Nalika’s husband, Pankaj, tried his best to find a cure for his mad wife. He sold all his livestock to pay for medical treatments and spent all his earnings and savings on witchdoctors. They gave him bracelets with amulets inscribed with the names of gods and goddesses to put on her arms and legs, but despite all the religious rituals, Nalika continued to deteriorate.
With desperation and hopelessness, Pankaj sought help from Gospel for Asia-supported missionary, Tahir Chavan.
Pankaj went to Tahir’s house and pleaded with the pastor to come and pray for his wife’s healing.
Pastor Tahir encouraged him from God’s Word, sharing the story of the demon possessed man from the book of Mark, chapter 5. Then he gathered nine believers from his church and went to Pankaj’s house to pray for Nalika.
For three hours, Tahir and the believers continuously prayed for this young wife whose life had been so cruelly consumed.
The next day, Pastor Tahir visited Pankaj and Nalika. To his amazement, Nalika’s family had some good news about Nalika’s condition.
“Since the day she became insane she had never slept so peacefully the entire night. She used to stay awake most of the time. But yesterday after the prayer, for the first time, she went to bed at 10 p.m. and woke up only at 6 a.m.,” they told him.
Encouraged by the report, Tahir told them that for the next six days he would continue to visit and pray for Nalika. On the third day, they noticed a remarkable improvement: Nalika was calm. They didn’t need to tie her hands with rope anymore for fear she would attack anyone who came too close.
As the days passed and prayer continued, God restored Nalika’s mental state to normal. Surprised by her healing, everyone in the village marveled to see her sane.
Nalika and her husband, Pankaj, committed their lives to Christ, and three others came to faith in the Savior through the miracle performed in Nalika’s life.
Because of God’s miraculous deliverance, Nalika could say to the fearful woman she encountered at the well, “I am no more a mad person. I have been healed by Jesus Christ. Now I am a normal person like you.”
From Demon-Possession to Bible College Student
June 7, 2010
If one were to see Sudeep sitting in class at a Gospel for Asia-supported Bible college, hungrily soaking up the teaching from God’s Word, they would never have guessed the state he was in just over a year prior.
Before coming to know the Savior, Sudeep was demon-possessed for several years. The demonic activity gave him special powers to perform what people perceived to be miracles.
The people in Sudeep’s village were afraid of him. But they also came to respect him as a spiritual leader in their traditional religion.
Sudeep was honored in his society but lived out a dark existence: He was completely under Satan’s power, and it was destroying his health. And even for all of his “powers,” he was powerless to heal himself.
Sudeep’s father spent a lot of money on treatment and consulted many doctors, but still his son was not cured. Sudeep’s condition was becoming worse each day, and his parents feared for his life.
Then Sudeep’s aunt, Pritha, visited them during this desperate time. Seeing her nephew’s pitiful condition, Pritha discerned that he was possessed by evil spirits. She told Sudeep’s father about Jesus, the great Healer, and lifted Sudeep to the Lord for healing.
God used the prayers of this godly woman, and Sudeep experienced complete deliverance. After seeing this miracle, the family started attending a local church.
As Sudeep continued to learn about the One who had healed him, he came to place his trust in Christ and soon gave testimony to others of his new faith. He grew in his walk with the Lord and became involved in ministry with another pastor for a couple of months.
A year after trusting in the Savior, Sudeep enrolled in a Gospel for Asia-supported Bible college. With a vision to serve the Lord among the unreached, he actively engaged in ministry along with his studies.
Please pray for Sudeep to stay very close to his Savior and for the Lord’s abundant blessings on his ministry.

Many are the Afflictions
But Dear Saviour You deliver us from them all.
Too Earthly Minded–No Heavenly Good
Satan will try to disrupt and
JESUS LIVES–let us always talk to others
Let us not stop after someone receives
Once we are of Jesus–forever we remain.
Life is not obout us, life is about you oh Lord!
“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. 31 “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
My prayer this morning, to you giving us wisdom, courage and hummbleness, to instead being looking to satisfy the desires and the passions that fight in our members and flesh, please, in the name of Jesus, teach us to surrent ourselves entirely in hummblelneess in front of your throne of grace!
Lord, teach us that a woman is not a “thing” to have fun with, to fill up our holes and emptiness, to satisfy the desires of our flesh, BUT IS THE PERFECT HELPER you created for men, this word HELPER is used in the old testament to describe you Lord, what a word full of honor and dignity!!
I ask you Lord for all them, for all woman in this site and around my life, I ask to bless all them, to bless my mother and my ex-wife…
Dear Father God,
Sometimes we pray for only our own selfish needs not realizing that their others in the world worse off then us.Oh Lord,I pray for the sick,I pray for the poor and the needy,I pray for the broken hearted. I pray for the single mothers and fathers and even the married couples even they can have it rough out there. Oh Father I pray for the homeless without food eat or roof over their head clothes to wear in the cold winter. Most of all I pray that we come closer to you hear your words and be good children because you love us and want us to be close to you but not close to the things of this world or what the devil has to offer because he only wants our souls to destroy and he is the enemy. Dear Father I pray for us That for once we should listen to your needs and what you want from us only to listen and come closer and closer in the name of Jesus AMEN! AMEN!
