God LOVES you and He expects to see your Faith

But only your Faith in God Jesus

Died in Faith:beg.jpg

Died in Faith:

….These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off

were assured of them, embraced them

and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland.

And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out,

they would have had opportunity to return.

But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country.

Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them.

Hebrews 11: 13-16

How to SEE God and His City?

Brothers,

Our days on earth are like a shadow.

Soon it will disappear without a trace.

But we are eternal.

The real ‘ME’ or the real ‘YOU’ is NOT just a body.

But YOU are living in this body.

Who are you?

You are a TRI-united being like your God is TRI-united (the God Father, the Son of God,  the Holy Spirit).

God is ONE because He is acting in unity like ONE.

And we are created in the image of God. We are three and ONE at the same time (body, soul and spirit).

It is soul that lives forever.

In one sense we will die.

In another sense we will never die.

If you are a believer in God Jesus you will live eternally according to the Holy Scripture.

You will live in the Presence of God.

And if you are a non-believer in God Jesus you will be eternally separated from God.

Note: God did NOT separate you from Himself by pushing you to the hell fire. But you are pushing yourself there because you make YOUR DECISION to LIVE without God…it means in SEPARATION from Him.

God’s nature and essence is HOLINESS.

The HOLY nature of God is AGAINST our madness and sins that’s why Adam and Eva went away from the presence of Godwhen they first sinned in Eden Garden.

So, after they committed sin- in disobedience to God- they lived in separation from God. But God did NOT abandon them and even He tried to change behavior of Cain when he contemplated murder of his brother.

God WAS SPEAKING with people because His LOVE to them NEVER changed.

The same way God is talking to us today.

So, brothers, you are ABLE to live with God in this world and in the world to come. And you will NOT be  separated from God by your sins but you can SEPARATE yourself from the sin of the world to LIVE holy as God says.

If you will put your TRUST in God Jesus and repent of your sins, HOLINESS of Jesus and His righteousness will be counted by God for you and He will consider you as a saved person REDEEMED by Isa Ibn Allah for eternal life in His world.

So, if you will believe in God Jesus and live as He says then you will have a GUARANTEE that when you will die you will be justified by God during the Judgment Day which we ALL will face soon. If you will die you will go to heaven.

But why?

Because it was YOUR DECISION to be with God Jesus.

You refused to live in separation from God on earth and in heaven. Actually, the hell is already on earth in our lives when we live as we wish. Such life is SELF-DESTRUCTION that’s why so many people commit suicide and are dying being shahyds.

They desperately want to REACH the destination…the wonderful city of God. But this Kingdom of God and this wonderful city was CLOSE to them.

But they had chosen the WRONG way.

The same way as many of us do it too.

DEATH and MURDERS are not the will of God for us!

But LIFE and LOVE are integral attributes of HIS ESSENCE.

To choose the CORRECT way to God is the most important thing of all. Nothing can even come close to it.

Where is this Way to God?

In Islam or in the Bible?

We know the answer because God of our father Ibrahim gave us the answer: REDEEMER of the world, the Lord of lords and the King of kings is HIS SON Jesus.

It is HE –‘Isa Ibn Allah- who is the ONLY WAY to God.

We have investments in heaven and where is your treasure there will be your heart also.

Our TREASURE is God Jesus.

His Kingdom is our destination.

And through His words, which we will find in the Bible, we will be guided and protected during the all days of our life.

The Bible is DEVINELY INSPIRED!

The Bible says: ALL the Scripture is BREATHED by God.

We have God’s words written on our hearts and in His Scripture and it SHOULD affect the WAY that we live.

Let’s daily READ

and MEDITATE

on the WORD of God

and IMPLEMENT it

during the ALL days of the life here on this planet

to be PREPARED and SANCTIFIED by God to enter into a NEW WORLD created by Him for us….

Philippians 3 (New King James Version)

Philippians 3

All for Christ
1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. For me to write the same things to you is not tedious, but for you it is safe.
2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation! 3 For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh, 4 though I also might have confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I more so: 5 circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, a Pharisee; 6 concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
7 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. 8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ 9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith; 10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death, 11 if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
Pressing Toward the Goal
12 Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. 13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. 16 Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind.
Our Citizenship in Heaven
17 Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern. 18 For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19 whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things. 20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.

BE SAVED BY GOD

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 can JUSTIFY 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
means YOU Arabs and Muslims
can be called sons of 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 me

has 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 above

or if you need more information or

still 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.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Family, Happiness and God

Conversation with my brother

Brother, you are not only my friend but my brother. Usually friends have right to talk honestly and share what they think. But as your sister (because your father Ibrahim is my father too…his blood is in you and me) I will be bold in what I will tell you. And it doesn’t matter for me if you will like this truth or not. Because I care about you and your future I should not hide the TRUTH from you. Your life is like film or very interesting book. Share with me all your thoughts and tell me about your past….. By the way, now you can tell your friends that your books are reading not only Arabs but Jews too. Lol


Brother, many Christian families are destroyed too. But the will of God is to RECONSTRUCT. Why husband and wife are ONE? Because it is symbol that they should support each other and act in unity like God is THREE and ONE (tri-united and He is acting in unity). So, if we would obey God and LOVE our wives as He commanded us we would NEVER divorce. As you know, there is only ONE reason why we are permitted by God to divorce: adultery. So, all other reasons are CRIMES against this nice lady you loved and married and AGAINST God. Name of such crimes is SIN. I remember how I loved my first love (Pakistani millionaire from the US) but he was a Muslim and my family stopped me. So my love to God was HIGHER than to him and this love, which never stops, was transformed into love to his people and country. We should regulate our life according to the highest standards of God and then He will bless us with happiness and forgiveness in our lives which will be evident in our life and relationships with our spouse and husband. Even in such small things, as our behavior in family, we should act in accordance to the HIGHEST LAWS of God. Why? Because His laws should penetrate our ESSENCE, hearts, bodies and lives. That’s why we prefer to live as holy people following God in our lives and implementing His laws. Brother, there are so many beautiful Arabs but their beauty will fade and we will face the Judgment of God. He will judge our intentions and actions, adulteries and fornication. His laws are already written in His Holy Scripture. So, what did He say? He said that ALL who commit adulteries and fornication will NEVER enter the Kingdom of God. So, let’s better invest our life into the Kingdom of Heaven than to spend it following the sexual desires which have been SUPPOSED to belong ONLY to your wife.


I know brother the laws of Islam. But I am talking about God of our father Ibrahim who EXISTED before EVEN Islam came into existence…before the foundation of this religion called Islam. God of our father Ibrahim made so many revelations, written in the Holy Scripture, about HOW we should LIVE, whom to OBEY, whom to WORSHIP. And ALL His words are said AGAINST Islam. So, our father Ibrahim is against laws you implement in Islam but He LOVES you Muslims and He is CALLING you BACK to His HOLY words, Kingdom and FREEDOM which you can GAIN only in His Son. Freedom from sins, slavery of sins and sexual desires which are leading you to hell. But His TRUTH will make you HAPPY in your life with your children and wife. His LAWS will be LIGHT for you leading to Him and NOT to a pit where you were lying with your girl-friends like a swine- which you hate in Islam. But this swine and its attitude to the mud pit SHOULD NOT be your life style! So, get out of this MUD PIT and TURN to God. He will wash you from the mud of your sins and He will put on you the white clothes of righteousness and you will be HOLY as your God Jesus is HOLY. The life of swine is NOT for us. That’s why our Scripture prohibits us even to take such food inside of us by eating it- swine meat I mean. So, spit out your sins and madness of such ‘free’ sexual life.

Because we are NOT free to live as we wish but we are SONS of God to live HOLY as God in unity with wife and God and everyone in our Ummah but NOT in unity with sin and multitude of ‘nominal’ wives. DEVOTE YOUR HEART to God and your WIFE and you will LIVE as a son of God and children of God adopted by Him to IMPLEMENT His laws and to BRING the Kingdom of Heaven to the earth!

Lord Jesus save please my brother O… You know him. And YOU NEVER stopped loving him.

Do NOT allow him to die and perish without You. But BE his FUTURE and eternal LIFE. Amen.

Islam or ‘Isa Allah?

Conversation with my brother Haider

God is one. HE is the Creator
Jesus is a creature of His creation,
how I worship to Jesus
and leave Allah for worship  Jesus the creature.

Haider salam,

Islam is leading you to the  hell.
Believe in ‘Isa Allah and live eternally because He is the Creator of the universe. He is Kalimat-Ullah.

Jesus is Isa Allah- Isa Ibn Allah.
He existed BEFORE the existance of the universe. He just came to the earth
and was incarnated into human body. He lived in the human body like I am living in my body.
He created the universe and all planets. He is Kalimat-Ullah.
He is NOT a creature of Allah! He is Ibn Allah and EQUAL in power to Baba Allah.
He is the Supreme Being and NOT a human being.
Body was of human nature but He LIVED inside of this body.
And His power resurrected even this body after 3 days from the moment of His death.
He descended to hell and saved criminals from the hell…all who wanted to believe that He is Allah.
And out of the hell He came back to HIS BODY. AND HE IS alive NOW and He is COMING BACK to His earth
to judge us.

I am the Way, Truth, Life

by Niqabbigirl » Sun Jul 04, 2010 6:48 pm

I am the Way, Truth Life

“I am the way.” Christ spans the distance between God and the sinner. Man would fain manufacture a ladder of his own, and . . . climb up to God. But that is impossible. That is the way which seems right unto man, but the end thereof are the ways of death (Prov. 14:12). It is Satan who would keep the exercised sinner on his self-imposed journey to God. What faith needs to lay hold of is the glorious truth that Christ has come all the way down to sinners. The sinner could not come to God, but God in the person of His Son has come out to sinners. He is the Way, the Way to Heaven, the Way to eternal blessedness.
“I am the truth.Christ is the full and final revelation of God. Adam believed the Devil’s lie, and ever since then man has been groping amid ignorance and error. “The way of the wicked is as darkness; they know not at what they stumble” (Prov. 4:19). “Having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart” (Eph. 4:18). A thousand systems has the mind devised. . . “There is none that understandeth” (Rom. 3:11). . . Truth is not to be found in a system of philosophy, but in a Person–Christ is “the truth;” He reveals God and exposes man. In Him are hid “All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Col. 2:3). What tremendous folly to ignore Him! . . . . with all your learning have you bowed before Him who is the Truth?”
“I am the life.” Christ is the Emancipator from death. The whole Bible bears solemn witness to the fact that the natural man is spiritually lifeless. He walks according to the course of this world; he has no love for the things of God. The fear of God is not upon him, nor has he any concern for His glory. Self is the center and circumference of his existence. He is alive to the things of the world, but he is dead to heavenly things. The one who is out of Christ exists, but he has not spiritual life. . . . The one who believes in Christ has passed out of death unto life (John 5:24). “He that believes on the Son has everlasting life” (John 3:36). Then turn to Him who is the Life.
“I am the way.” Without Christ men are Cains–wanderers. “They are all gone out of the way” (Rom. 3:12). Christ is not merely a Guide who came to show men the path in which they ought to walk: He is Himself the Way to the Father. “I am the truth.” Without Christ men are under the power of the Devil, the father of lies. Christ is not merely a Teacher who came to reveal to men a doctrine regarding God: He is Himself the Truth about God. “He that hath seen Me hath seen the Father.” “I am the life.” Without Christ men are dead in trespasses and sins. Christ is not merely a Physician. . . “I am come,” said He, “that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).

“No man comes unto the Father but by Me” (John 14:6). Christ is the only way to God. It is utterly impossible to win God’s favor by any efforts of our own.

Hello Arun,
I love Jesus Arun! And you should love him like I love HIM. He will give me eternal life. Nothing should be more important to you than the condition of your soul. When you die in the flesh. You have no second chances. You are dead! And when Jesus comes back in the power of the Father, he will JUDGE you for your sins. No begging, no asking for forgiveness. If you lived a good and obedient life, you will have a home in heaven. If not, you go to eternal hell fire. Is that what you want, Arun? Do you want to not seek your own salvation so you can have eternal life? Why do you not preach the gospel Arun? You must study the Bible everyday Arun! I am not perfect, never claimed to be. But GOD forgives us for our sins. And you should read the Bible and get some truth in your soul Arun. Remember there are no second chances.

Blessings.

Salaam,
I thought I would just drop in and tell you that Jesus Christ came here to this earth for all people. Not just Jews that many believe and preach, but for Muslims, Hindus, Buddists, Atheists, Mormons, everyone. He came here to do many things. But I thought I would put here the things that Jesus did that is the most important. Please read. Niqabbigirl

THEY CALLED HIM JESUS
Seven things Christ did for all.

1. He was “lifted up” as a Sacrifice

John 3:14And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

God lifted him so the world could see our saving grace

The believer now has total life

Man could not do God has done.

2. He died to redeem us.

Titus 2:14Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Clean us from all iniquity

Purify our sinful hearts and lives to him self

To make us a peculiar people

To make us want to do good works

3. He was “raised up” as a Saviour

2nd Cor. 4:14Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.

He came forth as the King of Kings

He gave us a taste of glory here on earth

He sent us the spirit of redemption

4..He rose to Justify

Romans 4:25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our
justification.

He justified our sins before God

He delivered us from hell

He took us out of the hand of the devil

He changed our hearts and lives completely

5. He was “received up” as a Victor

Mark 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.

He went home to heaven in front of them

He took our sins to the mercy seat of God

He still ask the father to forgive us today

6. He lives to save

Hebrews 7:25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

He saves all who come to him

No matter how low we are

His who life is to talk to God about every sin

7. He comes to Glorify

2nd Thess. 1:10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.

Glory to God he will return to get us.

He will glorifies this old body of sin

He will change it to a clean pure body.

Niqabbigirl from x.x.x.83 left this message 5 days ago:

True repentance is always accompanied by sorrow.

Repentance is a deep, radical, fundamental, lasting change;
and you will find that, whenever you meet with it in Scripture,
it is always accompanied with sorrow for past sin.

And rest assured of this fact– that the repentance which has
no tear in its eye, and no mourning for sin in its heart,
is a repentance which needs to be repented of.

In such false repentance, there is no evidence of conversion,
and no sign of the existence of the grace of God.

The man who knows that his sin is forgiven,
does not cease to mourn for it.
No, brethren, his mourning becomes deeper as
his knowledge of his guilt becomes greater.
His hatred of sin grows in proportion as he understands
that love of Christ by which his sin is put away.

In true believers, mourning for sin is chastened and sweetened,
and, in one sense, the fang of bitterness is taken out.

But, in another sense, the more we realize
our indebtedness to God’s grace, and the more we see of
the sufferings of Christ in order to effect our redemption,
the more do we hate sin, and the more do we lament
that we ever fell into it.

The man who has led the purest life, when he is brought
before God by the humbling influence of the Holy Spirit,
is the man who almost invariably considers himself
to have been viler than anybody else.

“Repentance is to leave
The sin we loved before,
And show that we in earnest grieve
By doing so no more.”

Just Your Neighborhood Jesus

BY ERICA

Being here in India my eyes have been pried open to the reality of the world. The depravity, poverty, and sin that defile this beautiful earth are so saddening, but that’s not all my eyes see. Amidst the piles of garbage, the rickshaws moving at full speed, and all the noise and smells, I see Jesus. He is in every person I see. Their eyes are mirror reflections of His. Their hands are modeled after His. We are, in fact, made in His image, and with large population here in India, His image is unavoidable. Jesus is in the troublemaking boy in our neighborhood, the tireless mother of four, the crippled leper, and the tailor that stitched together my punjabis yesterday. Have you loved on your neigborhood Jesus lately?

The Journey

BY ERICA

Hello my dear friends and family!

Praise the Lord… I have finally made it to an internet cafe!!! I am so excited to share with you some of what is happening here in Dharmapuri, India, but first I will tell you about how we got here.

On July 1st, our team, well the part of our team that was able to get their visas on time, boarded the plane in Kona, Hawaii headed for our first stop in Honolulu. In Honolulu, my friend Dawn and I, looking to get some snacks for the flight, severely underestimated the efficiency of Japanese Airlines in getting the hundreds of people crammed in the waiting room onto the plane headed for Narita, Japan. We returned to our gate after no more than 10 minutes to find that the people had seemed to have evaporated. The gate was empty, leaving only a few frazzled-looking flight attendants and our faithful leader, Jessica, waiting for us. A bit embarrassed we boarded the plane and found our seats. I was sitting next to Tiffany, one of the girls on our team. She is such a sweetheart and it was great to finally be able to get to know her a bit better.

After the 8-hour flight, which went by quite easily, we were in Japan! Since we had such a long layover our team decided to leave the airport to venture into the city for a bit. We applied for a day visa, got through customs and immigration, exchanged some of our U.S. dollars for yen, and took the train into the city of Narita. After the quick ride we decided to start walking to go check out a nearby Buddhist temple. Along the way we saw lots of beautiful Japanese people, a really interesting cemetery, and some fascinating outdoor shops. When we got to the temple after about a 15-minute walk we all dispersed to look around. The place was massive, dotted with ponds, bridges, shrines, and statues. I went with a few other girls to check out the service they were holding in the main part of the building. We removed our shoes, bowed, and stepped in. I was instantly overwhelmed by the thickness of the air in the room. The place was heavy and it felt dark. We kneeled and watched as the worshippers bowed to idols, throwing various things in the fire and participating in rituals I didn’t understand. They chanted and hummed and rang bells. It was so somber. It felt like a funeral. My heart broke for my God, the one true living God. This idolatry must feel like such a brutal betrayal of His unconditional love for us. I prayed the blood of Jesus over the place and the people in it and spoke out in tongues. I sang songs of praise to the Lord and tears of sadness welled in my eyes for the ones who don’t know Him. Soon it was time to leave and we headed back to the train station. We prayed a prayer of cleansing to ensure that nothing demonic could come with us as we continued on our journey, and though I am so thankful for my own salvation, I left a piece of my heart in Japan. I will continue to pray for that beautiful nation to come alive in the freedom of His love. I will return to Japan again someday.

Once we arrived again at the airport we were off to Singapore. I sat next to a sweet young Japanese couple and prayed that their marriage would be sealed by their faith in Jesus Christ. Lack of sleep caught the better of me, and I drifted off into peaceful rest for majority of the nearly 7 hour flight. We arrived in Singapore at 12:00AM Saturday morning. Since it was the middle of the night we decided not to leave the airport, which was fine with us. The 8-hour layover gave us ample time to explore the airport, which is by far the coolest airport I have ever seen! It has a pool, a butterfly exhibit, a sunflower garden, ponds, slides, movie theaters, video game lounges, hotels, and amazing shopping. We wandered around, enjoying the amenities, and Kelsey, Kailyn, and I even took a much-needed shower. All was going smoothly… until we went to board our 9:00AM flight. We showed up at the gate early, just as instructed. Unfortunately we had received some bad information and our luggage and tickets were not at the gate. We rushed to the counter to get checked in and were given the terrible news. Since we had failed to check in before the appropriate time our luggage was going to miss the plane and be stuck in Singapore. My heart sank. All of my camera equipment, my laptop, and my clothes were in that bag. My genetic instincts (inherited from my mother) took over. I stepped up to the counter, and asked the woman what she could do. In her broken English she said, “We try. No promises.” I sensed my frustration level rising and I could feel my blood boiling. Then the Lord, in His great patience and mercy revealed an important truth to my heart. He said, “Erika, it offends me that you don’t trust me to handle this.” What a simple statement. What a radical revelation.

So I took a deep breath, grabbed my boarding pass and headed to our gate. I spoke to the lady behind the counter and asked her to do whatever she could to help me. Then I sat down and left it in God’s hands, praying and singing songs of praise to Him. I resigned to not speak about the issue again until we were in India. Our team boarded the plane, our hearts full of hope in the protection of the Lord. We looked around. We were the only white people on board. The flight attendants wore saris and the TV screens played comedic Bollywood movies. It had begun. Our 3-hour flight from Singapore to Chennai passed by quickly. We stepped off the plane and were instantly bombarded by the heat and humidity. Looking around I immediately fell in love with the people. Their faces were beautiful, filled with stories I couldn’t wait to hear. We made it through immigration and proceeded towards the baggage carousel. To my heart’s greatest delight we found every piece of luggage for our entire team waiting for us there. Praise the Lord! Everyone loaded up like pack mules and pushed through the crowd towards the street where our ministry contact and van were waiting for us. Lines of people waved at us. We were quite the spectacle, our light skin shining in the sun.

We met Pastor Daniel, who greeted us with traditional necklaces and Diet Coke, along with his warm smile and exuberant personality. I chuckled inside as he bobbed his head waved his hands and repeated, “No problem. No problem.” We packed into the van and proceeded down the road, in the most dangerous ride I have ever been on. There seem to be absolutely no traffic laws and everyone just swerves into any open space they find. Pedestrians, rickshaws, motorcycles, mopeds, cars, vans and enormous trucks all share the same road, moving full speed ahead in a chaotic frenzy. It was quite the adrenaline rush.

We arrived safely (thank God) at the train station and again loaded all of our gear onto our bodies. When we stepped into the station, the crowd of people was overwhelming. Never in my life have I seen more people, more faces, more luggage, and animals in one place. The sounds and the smells rushed my senses. Our guide moved towards our train quickly, easily navigating through the crowd. A small flicker of panic lit up my heart. I moved as fast as I could, keeping my eyes locked on the back of Pastor Daniel’s head. Thankfully we all made it to the train safely and sat in our very crammed seats. The train felt hot and damp. My shoulders were pressed against the shoulders next to me and my mouth was dry with thirst. As the train began moving towards our destination in Dharmapuri, vendors began pushing through the aisles selling everything from toys to drinks to homemade foods. Beggars also started their usual rounds. Children with severe deformities shoved their crippled hands in my face and women with sad eyes clung to my arms. My heart throbbed. The conflict waging in my soul made me uneasy. I looked out the window, praying to the Lord, asking for wisdom beyond my years.

A few hours into our 5-hour train ride the need to pee became urgent. I was forced to venture into the “toilet” After a few minutes of struggling to open the door, it finally swung free, revealing the dirtiest bathroom I have ever seen. The smell of rotten waste nearly knocked me over. I was definitely not in Hawaii anymore. The toilet was nothing more than a hole in the floor of the train. I held my breath and did my business, struggling not to fall as the train shook back and forth. Oddly I felt as though this was my official initiation into missionary work. “I was a real servant of Jesus now,” I laughed.

When we finally came to our stop, we were informed that our entire team had a two minute rolling stop to get off the train, along with all of our luggage. We stepped into full gear, tossing bags out the door of the train. Miraculously we made it. Again we crammed into a van for the final leg of our trip. After a 20-minute drive we had finally arrived. We were home. Home is now Dharmapuri, India and will be for the next  three months. I am so excited to be here. I can’t wait to see how the Lord moves through our team. Thank you so much for all of your prayers! They got us here safely and I know they will carry us through.

All my love,

Erika

Our New Home

BY ERICA

It was late in the evening when we finally arrived to our new home, and though we were tired, excitement peaked. We couldn’t wait to finally explore the place we would be living for the next three months! Our new home is a bubble gum pink, three story building nestled in the heart of one of the poorest neighborhoods I have ever seen. The entry is a creaky gate, stiffened by years of rust, with a small patio for shoes. After opening the front door we spotted the long dining room table lined with mismatched metal and plastic chairs crammed in on each side in a feeble attempt to fit our very large team. To the right are two very small bedrooms and a squatty (a small hole in the ground used as a substitution for a toilet in parts of the world where plumbing is a challenge). Also on the bottom floor is a small kitchen for washing dishes.

As I walked up the narrow cement stairs to the second floor I noticed our new neighbors waving to us from the street. I smiled and waved back, anxious to meet these beautiful people. The second floor is the girls’ floor, which is basically everyone since we only have four guys total on our team (they live on the third floor.) The space is made up of three tiny rooms and a main area and three bathrooms, if you could call them that. Small green metal cots are packed in on nearly every square inch of floor space to accommodate the 15 girls that will live in this space. We all rushed to grab beds and unpack. I chose a cot in the farthest room. The room is approximately 8 feet by 12 feet with the three cots taking up most of the space. There are a few shelves for our clothes and things and we even have a bathroom.

The bathroom consists of a faucet and a large bucket, our new mode of showering for the next three months, a rusted old Western toilet, and a hole in the ground for a drain. To shower, we fill the bucket with water (cold is the only option) and use a cup to dump the water over our bodies, trying to catch the water back in the bucket to conserve what little water we have. Another interesting inconvenience is the plumbing situation. Though there is a lever that you can pull to flush water through the toilet, the plumbing is poor. Toilets are constantly clogging leaving an unpleasant aroma seeping through our living quarters.

Our mattresses are another point of discomfort. Harder than your average rock, they provide little support or comfort for an aching body after a full day of ministry. But I am young, and my body can take a beating quite well.

Electricity is always an iffy thing. Sometimes the lights work, sometimes they don’t. Some days charging your camera battery is out of the question, and with 20 people fighting over three power outlets, getting 20 minutes of charging time a day is like winning the lottery. And worst of all, when the electricity is out, the fans can’t run, which leaves our house feeling more like an oven.

Probably the worst torture of all concerning our living conditions is the mosquitoes. I currently have a mosquito bite the size of a grapefruit on the back of my thigh and nearly 30 other bites all over my body. The itching is unbearable, and the bugs don’t seem to respond at all to repellent.

On a positive note, the food is incredible. Today’s dinner was naan bread, coconut rice, chicken, and chai tea. The chai is the best in the world, a much-appreciated delicacy.

Though the living conditions are tough, I have never been happier. This is exactly where God wants me to be, and He has provided grace in abundance, sufficient to get me through any test of my comfort level. So am I suffering for Jesus? Hardly. Though this is no paradise, it holds no comparison to the sufferings of the many missionaries who have gone before me, and those now in prisons and in hiding from the persecutions they face in the name of Jesus Christ. My life is blessed. My life is exciting, adventure awaits, and the work I am doing hold eternal significance. The Good News is spreading like wild fire here in India. The harvest is coming. Stay tuned.

Is the WAY to God in  Islam?
Are you forgiven by God in Islam? Are you SURE that Allah forgave you ALL your sins? Or may be you are just going to hell by following Islam?!



Who is God of our father Ibrahim?  God is LOVE

Why do we look for God in Islam and in the Bible?

Are you seeking spiritual guidance and direction in your life?

Do you have serious questions about spiritual teaching and issues? About salvation, Islam and the Bible?

This free study I am offering to you provides Bible answers! God in the Bible offers the true answers to questions such as:

Does God really exist? What is the purpose and meaning of life? What is the origin of the human race? Can we receive eternal life after death? How can we be forgiven of our sins and receive the favor and blessings of God? Is God in Islam the same God of our father Ibrahim/Abraham?

We urge you to consider why the Bible is the best source of spiritual guidance and direction. Words of God found in the Gospel of Christ (Injil), can answer your questions about LIFE and the meaning of life. The teaching of Jesus can lead you to a fulfilling spiritual life and true Hope for eternal life. Please study this free lesson showing why this is so and be actively involved in discussions with us! ASK any questions and God will give you ANSWERS..may be from us too!

Introduction:

All people everywhere at some time in their lives recognize that they have spiritual needs. They need guidance and direction to find hope for eternity and answers to the questions of life. That’s why we devote daily our time to provide you answers to your questions. We offer you opportunity to be actively engaged in studying of the Holy Scripture. Let’s do it together. Because if God is NOT in Islam then you will JUST join millions of Arabs and Muslims in the hell fire. Study the Holy Scripture and we will FIND the TRUTH together!

People alone cannot provide this spiritual guidance

Many learned men do not even attempt to provide answers for the meaning and purpose of life and other serious spiritual questions. If they do try, they cannot prove their answers are right or wrong, and they often contradict one another. Many Muslims have just countless number of MISCONCEPTIONS about God and His Bible. We are going to change your mind by SHOWING you what is the WILL of God toward you and your life. Let’s consider Qur’an and the Bible and God will DEFINITELLY talk to your hearts about Himself.

Jeremiah 10:23  The way of man is not in himself;
It is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.


You need to find and study a source of spiritual direction and guidance from someone who really knows the answers. [Isaiah 55:8,9]  That’s why LET’S be ACTIVELLY engaged in our DIALOG.

God in the Bible claims that it teaches the true answers to these questions

Psalms 119:105  Your word is a LAMP to my feet and a LIGHT to my path.
John 17:17  Your word is Truth.
2 Timothy 3:16,17  All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Bible teaching affirms that belief in God Jesus Christ will give us required spiritual direction you need to show you the meaning and purpose of life. It claims that you can FIND these answers in God’s word if you will diligently study the Scriptures because God is INTERESTED to REVEAL His plans He has toward you!

The purpose of this free study is to urge you to consider Bible teaching – the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Gospel is the Good News that God Jesus was resurrected to resurrect us for the ETERNAL LIFE with Him in His Kingdom of Heaven) – as the answer to your need TO FIND God and LIVE eternally with Him.

So, brothers Arabs and Muslims, please use the contact information we provide in the bottom part of our messages to contact us and engage in dialogue with us.

Isn’t God Amazing?

2 Kings 6: 15 to 17

‘When the servant of the man of God got up and went out early the next morning, an army with horses and chariots had surrounded the city. “Oh, my lord, what shall we do?” the servant asked.

“Don’t be afraid,” the prophet answered. “Those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”

And Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes so he may see.” Then the LORD opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”

Isn’t God just amazing? When we think that enemy’s forces have outnumbered us, we have to remember that Jesus has “supernatural” forces that we cannot see that will fight on our behalf. Lord, keep fighting for me and as Joel Osteen said today (in his devotionals), “Heavenly Father, thank You for the blood of Jesus which cleanses my sins and gives me a blameless heart. Search my heart today and remove anything that isn’t pleasing to You. I open my heart and invite You to work in every area of my life. I bless You and thank You for Your faithfulness, In Jesus Name. Amen.”

Healing

May the Holy Spirit heal us from the pain of the past so we can be as vibrant as new. Lord heal broken hearts! Amen!

Admitting we need help from God is a sign of strength

Heavenly Father, giver of all good things, fill our hearts with love for you and for others. Forgive the arrogance that creeps into us. Help us to be pliable and to seek your guidance and direction. Amen.

Great Big God

Dear God,
I praise You and thank You – You are a Great Big God. Bigger than we know. You are more than able to do exceeding abundantly, above and beyond, immeasureably more, than we ask or think! MORE than we ask OR think!!! Oftentimes I’ve thought I’ve asked You for some really crazy impossible things, and I’ve had some REALLY BIG dreams that I wondered about, but according to Your Word, You can do MORE than that! More than anything I can ask or possibly think of, or dream up!!! Your ways are higher than our ways and Your thoughts are higher than our thoughts! You are amazing! Help us all to remember – not to put limits on You –
and to ALWAYS D R E A M B I G !!!!!!!!
In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN 🙂

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for HE WHO PROMISED IS FAITHFUL. Hebrews 10:23

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Ephesians 6:10

Heartily prayer

Father in Heaven by the Holy Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, I thank you for the unfailing love you gave for us. Lord, You saw my heart. I asked with all my heart Your forgiveness for all the ungodly things I have made. Clean my heart oh God.. and Thank you Lord cause You are the God who forgiven us in all our sin.
Lord, You knew my life and there is nothing I can hide from You. You saw me oh Lord. I bowed down into Your Holy Name. I prayed Lord that You will gave me strength to continue to follow You and to live my life unto You oh Lord. All my hopes and plans in life I gave it to you to decide. That Your Will be will. Lord, Guide me in the right path. Give me wisdom in all things I do. Especially looking to have work oh Lord, That You will give me work that You want and what is right cause I knew that all your will is right. You have purpose in all things. Lord, I prayed that I won’t stop believing in You that You have good plans for my future. And all these things I asked by the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Thank You!

Heavenly Father

On my knees I thank you for this amazing day. You know what happened as you know everything in my life.

Thank you, your grace is amazing.

  1. I am not the type to bother posting comments on individuals blogs normally however after stumbling across yours I thought I might shoot a little note to give me a break from working. I have most definitely spent a bit of time here browsing and procrastinating! Great stuff here and I’m going to be back again in the future to check out more. Take care!
