By Sherly Isaac

John 14:1-6, "Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know. Thomas said to Him, "Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?" Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."

These were the words of Jesus when He was about to depart from this world. He knew that His disciples will be completely devastated by His departure. He was trying to tell them that they need not to be troubled but to only believe in God. He also told them that He is going to prepare a place for them. And Jesus declared that He is the way to heaven and no one can go to heaven except through Him.

Today there are hundreds and hundreds of faith, beliefs and religions. The central theme of most of those faith's is to find out how to attain salvation of our souls and how to go to heaven. I think that 99% of the religions believe that by our hard work we could achieve eternal life. They do all kinds of rituals thinking to somehow achieve salvation through their hard labor. They go round and round about and to their utter disappointment they find themselves working harder and harder to get rid of their sins. But it is impossible for a man to achieve forgiveness of their sins by their own works and it is also impossible for them to come out of their sins by themselves. It is like a door completely shut, no matter how hard we try to open it, it remains closed. The reason is very simple because there is no salvation through our works. Our good works cannot erase our past sins.

My friend, the stain of sins will still be there no matter how many good works you do in your life. Then the question is, 'what can wash away our sins?' Nothing, but the blood of Jesus. About 2000 years ago Jesus paid the price for our salvation on the cross. He paid the price in full. He shed His precious blood on the cruel cross. His blood can cleanse us white as snow. We read in Bible Isa 1:18 "Come now, and let us reason together," Says the LORD, "Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool."

Today we can receive forgiveness of our sins by the shed blood of Jesus. Come to Him, He will forgive and forget all your sins and will give you eternal life.

Testimony of Arch Bishop Jonathan Ansar - Part 2

Supernatural experiences:
Jonathan Ansar faced much persecution, went through hard times and through crisis that brought him up to stand firm as a pillar for the name of Jesus Christ. He has witnessed the power of God through miracles and healings from the first day since he accepted Christ. His personal experiences include surviving in spite of attempts on his life. Twice attempts were made to poison him which had no effect on him. A number of attempts have been made on his life and he has always survived miraculously including the two incidence of drinking deadly poison. A number of attempts have been made to beat him to death. Once a man was mistaken for Jonathan and brutally beaten.

Another time a gang of men drove him to a secluded place and attempted to beat him with sticks. Miraculously non of the sticks touched him as he lay on the floor, but instead
the sticks hit each other inches away from Jonathans body. While some of the men argued amongst themselves about whether to kill him or just beat him, Jonathan escaped. During one crusade two men tried to pull Jonathan out of the stage. They grabbed each arm and began to pull. Although Jonathan knew martial arts and could kill them with his bare hands, he knew that there was a greater power. While a great crowd was watching him, he immediately shouted out, “In Jesus name!” The men fell to the ground. This was a great testimony of the power of God.

Various healings have taken place in his life including the receiving of new kidneys supernaturally, healing from a skin disorder and diabetes. Miraculously he walks without a bone socket in his leg. Each time sickness came on his body he confessed that his body was the temple of the Holy Spirit and that the sickness was at the wrong address. He believes his body is the address of the Holy Spirit!

When his kidneys failed, the doctor told him that the cost of the operation would be thousands of rupees. Jonathan decided to phone his Muslim uncle to borrow money. However, his uncle scoffed him and told him that he should go to Jesus if he could heal as Jonathan had previously told him. Jonathan realized that his uncle was unknowingly ‘preaching’ to him. That day he believed God for a miracle. He had a vision of hands reaching his kidney area and after that returned to the hospital asking for a second x-ray.

The doctor refused saying that the first x-rays showed the problem and that there was no need for another one. However, Jonathan insisted and upon seeing the second x-ray the doctors were shocked! He had perfect kidneys!

For a short period of time Jonathan helped to smuggle Bibles to China and other nations. He was caught and he had to spend time in prison in China where he secretly baptized over 30 converts. During this time he learnt to speak Chinese.

Today he speaks eighteen languages and in India he uses English, Hindi, Urdu and Mizo to preach and teach in His miracle crusade, for which he is well known in India, have drawn crowds of upto 300,000 people, with many miracles and healings taking place.

Dead Raised!
During over 36 years of preaching, he has seen 8 peoples being raised from the dead. His first experience was early in his Christian walk when he did not even know how to preach.

Along with a team of Christians he went to preach in a village that was stooped in witchcraft and idol worship. The group preached in the market and no one seemed interested. After preaching, an old lady approached the group and asked if they needed a place to stay for the night, which they did and so accepted her invitation. However, she died that night.

The village priest told the villagers that this had happened to her because she dared to entertain these Christians. He went on to tell them that they needed to sacrifice these Christians in order to remove the curse upon the village. Jonathan and the other members of the team were locked in a room with the dead body of the old lady awaiting execution the next day. The ladies in the team were crying. Jonathan would not accept that this would happen to them. He held the hand of the dead lady for sometime praying to God for miracle. After a few hours her hands slowly became warmer and warmer until finally she opened her eyes!

When the villagers came for the outreach team they were shocked when they opened the door to see the old lady alive and well. Jonathan and the team had a great crusade that evening!

Once while in Germany, Jonathan was visiting someone at the hospital. While walking through the hospital he saw a lady crying with a baby on her shoulder. Thinking that maybe she was crying because the baby was unwell, he approached her and offered to pray for the baby. As he prayed the baby began to cough. The mother screamed and ran to get the doctor.

Jonathan was surprised and thought that he had done something wrong. When the doctor arrived Jonathan learnt that the baby had been certified dead and that was why the mother was crying. Miraculously God raised the baby from the dead!

Through this miracle Jonathan received invitations to preach throughout Germany. Previously he had no invitations.

Many people are amazed to know that he is over fifty years old. Often people believe he is in his thirty’s. This too came about through a miracle. Previously he had a skin disorder. He stood on a verse in the book of Job that spoke of having skin like that of a child and believed that God would give him that miracle that can be seen by all.
