By Sherly Isaac

Once I read a story. There was a very generous and loving king in a city. He loved his people so much that often he would disguise himself as an ordinary person and walk among them to know what were the problems of his people. His another hobby was to go for hunting.

Once he went for hunting. He followed a deer and lost his way and his aids were left behind. While he was following the deer, he did not notice that a tiger was keeping an eye on him. At the very moment when the tiger was about to jump and attack the king, one woodcutter who happened to be there, killed the tiger shooting an arrow and saved the life of the king. The king was happy and promised to reward him greatly.

While talking to him, the king realized that he was a poor woodcutter struggling financially. When the king returned to his palace, he ordered to give the best sandalwood farms to the woodcutter so that he could become rich selling costly woods of sandalwood trees. The woodcutter was rewarded with the best sandalwood farms of the land.

Many months passed by. Then one day the king remembered the woodcutter who saved his life. He got curious to know how the woodcutter was doing now. So he disguised himself as an ordinary person and visited the sandalwood farms which was given to the woodcutter. When he reached there he recognized the woodcutter who was still looking very poor and on rags. He was cutting small pieces of a tree to burn as firewood. King was astonished and shocked seeing that this man was using those costly trees as firewood. King was heartbroken. He thought, oh, I gave this man the best and costly gift but this man could not recognize the value of what I gave him and still living in poverty. Had he sold the trees as it is, he would have been the richest person in the land.

Probably this is the condition of many born again children of God. They have received Jesus in their lives but have not recognized the value of the most valuable gift God has given for the human kind and because of that, they have not been able to claim the blessings, riches and authority stored for them in Christ. Though many confess that Jesus is the almighty God, that His name is the most powerful name, that every prayer prayed in His mighty name will come to pass without fail and still live in a miserable state. The reason is that many have not known the real value of Jesus' name or have not claimed the blessings stored for them as a child of God..

Bible says in Phil 2:9-11, "Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 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, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

This is the power of Jesus and if you are a child of God, if you are born in the family of God, you can enjoy everything that God has. His name is so powerful that no demon, no witchcraft power, no evil power can ever stand before Him or could harm those who call upon the name of Jesus. My mom tells an incident that when my sister was two or three years old, she often would cry and point towards some corner and would say that there is a dog or a cat sitting in the corner. My mom took some red paper symbolizing the blood of Jesus and made cross with that paper and glued it to the doors and windows of the home. She said that after that my sister had no problem of that kind.

Even today Jesus' powerful and unfailing name can bring deliverance and blessings in our lives. If you need a deliverance today call upon His name and He will come for your rescue.

I have already told that I had no freedom to go outside of my home. But once an emergency happened in my home. My father was not at home, he would come home only rarely because he was serving in a mosque in a far away place from home. My brothers were young children. My mother cannot go. It became necessary for my mother to send me. When my mother was sending me to the house of my aunt who is my father's sister, she gave me much direction. When I was studying in school, I used to visit my aunt often and today also I was to go there. There was a bus stop near my house. I had to catch the direct bus from there to my aunt's house. My mother told me, "daughter, you should not interact with gentiles, you should not stand where they stand, you should stand where no one is standing, you should not look at the face of anybody, do not speak to them, but when the bus comes you catch the bus, go there, do your work and return as soon as possible. Specially, you should not look at the face of any man because these things are prohibited. She spoke all these things to me and sent me away with great fear and with great faith.

I came to the bus stop and just as my mother told me, I stood in a corner of the bus stop.

When I was standing there, there were many people, men and women who were in that bus stop. No one seemed to be caring about me; they only looked once towards me and stood aside because they could not see my face clearly as my face was covered with black clothe. They stood aside, probably thinking, "What type of figure is she?"

When I was standing there, a respectable looking old man probable in his 60's approached me slightly stooped to look at my face because I was standing with my face down. He came to me and with folded hands he wished me. And he said to me like this, "child, when I saw your dress, I realized that you are growing up and living in a radical Muslim family. But you will never be able to go to heaven for which you desire, wishing with faith, waiting for it, just by wearing this type of dress or by following your scriptures. If you want to go to heaven you need to come out believing in the way of Jesus whom I serve. After saying this he said, I am telling you the thoughts of your heart. When he said like that, I once looked at his face and then looked at the ground. I was shocked and thought, "How could this man know my thoughts which I had been carrying in my heart from the last two years?"

Then he talked to me about Jesus. So I said to him, "I don't want to hear about this Jesus. this Jesus is a human being. He died on the cross which means that He was not God nor was He a prophet but simply a human being and I don't want to hear about Him." And I told, "I can tell you the true life story." I told him the whole life story of Isa Nabi as I have said about him before. He said, " The story you told about Isa Nabi is correct. Jesus about whom I told you is the same Isa Nabi about whom you were telling. He said that this Isa Nabi (Prophet Jesus) is the same Jesus. Saying that he started to tell the verses from the Bible to prove that Jesus is God. I interrupted him and said, "I don't want to hear, I have no interest in listening to this. I closed my ears with my hands saying, in fact listening to your words are prohibited for me. Then he gave me a Bible in my hand and said, "Ok, I am not saying anything, but read the words of the Bible and know that Jesus is God." When I took the Bible in my hand, a great fear and restlessness came in my heart because from my childhood I heard, learned and grew with these teachings that you should not touch the scriptures of other faiths with your hand. Touching will make you unholy. My father had taught me that I have to touch such scriptures only for destroying them.

Suddenly I felt that because I took the Bible in my hands, Allah would punish me but if I destroy it Allah will reward me. I told him to just wait there for a moment. I borrowed a matchbox from nearby shop and in front of that person I burnt down the Bible. Thus I established my faith in the Allah and that his words written in Quran alone and nothing else. After burning the Bible, I told him to leave me alone and said, "I don't want to see your face nor do I want to hear your words. Just leave this place."

The person then told me, "The same Jesus whom you have rejected has seen you. Carrying in your hands a Bible similar to that you have burnt, you will preach the same Jesus whom you have rejected, proclaiming that Jesus is God among your own people and in different parts of the world. Those days are coming. After saying those words that person left that place.

When that person left saying these words, a great restlessness filled my soul and I worried thinking why he spoke like that. I started thinking whether there is any meaningful signification in what he said. I did not feel like going to my aunt, but I ran back to my home. My mother looked at me and asked, "did you go, what happened there?" But I did not say a word and I entered in my room. Though I was sitting inside my home I had no peace. There were Quran verses and the words of Quran photo framed or laminated hanging in my room which I recited and still I could not get any peace in my heart and the restlessness did not leave me.

Immediately I came out of my room. My mother again asked, what happened to me. She said, "you are looking aweful, did anybody say anything to you?" Then also I did not say anything because I was not able to say anything. There was a very heavy burden in my heart and a feeling that something bad was going to happen to me. I felt that something bad will happen to me right then. Something is going to happen to me. Something will happen.. Something will happen; these thoughts were continuously in my heart.

When these thoughts were ruling my heart, I heard the call to prayer from Mosque reminding that it was prayer time. I thought, "when I will go and pray the Muslim prayer, I will get peace. Prayers have to be done five times in a day and every time when the Mosque "call to prayer" is heard that will be prayer time.
