By Sherly Isaac

Rom 5:6, “For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.”

This is the week when we remember the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus for our sins. Those sins which cannot be washed by any other means, those sins that are dark as scarlet, shameful and unbearably painful, Jesus came in this world to take them away from us. What a great sacrifice He did for us. What a great love He showed on the cross for us. Nothing could compare His love and His sacrifice for human beings. The place where you and I had to die, He died instead and shed His precious blood on the cross. The shame and torture which we had to go through, He went through it all. So that we could be sin free and live with Him forever happily.

How it happens? Bible says in Rev 3:20, “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Every person could hear this knock in his/her heart. If you hear His voice and open the door for Him, He will come in and dine with you. It is an open invitation from God for the lost humanity, for the remission of their sins and to reconcile with God. The day you repent from your sins and ask Jesus to come into your heart, He will come in and change your life. He will wash away all your past sins and give you a new beginning. He will make you His sons and daughters. More than that when your life ends in this world, you will be granted entry to heaven where you could live with Him forever.

John 3:15-16, “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

This is the promise for those who put their belief in Jesus, for those who had invited Him in their lives. They will not die but live forever. It is possible that you have celebrated many Good Fridays and Easters in your life and yet you may not be sure about your destination. Invite the resurrected Jesus in your life, He will give you a new life beyond your imagination, and even beyond your wildest dreams. If you repent and turn to Him, He is ready to forgive your sins and give you eternal life.

And God promised to work in the hearts of authorities in the same way as the above experience.

I came back home. In the next month I fasted for seven days. After two days I had to go to court. On the seventh day of my fast, I could not get sleep. And I said to the Lord, "please give me a rough idea of how you will be working, because the attorney appointed by my father would cross-examine me and without my knowledge I could say something unwisely. Then he will say, "look, this girl is only fifteen years old, she is not a major and that's why she does not understand the question and does not know how to answer correctly. So I asked God to give me a rough idea of how He is going to work in this case.

Then suddenly I got an idea that if I go to my school, I could get my certificate and if I show that they will know that I am twenty years old. If court understands that I am twenty years old, then they will allow me to go according to my will. Then I thought that this may be a vain thinking because if I go there, my family will kill me. The school is near to my home. Those who know me and those who know my father are numerous in that area. If they inform my father, he would take me home. Even many who came to the court had warned me not to go out alone as my father had plan to secretly take me, hide me and to place the blame on the servants of God who is taking care of me.

But when I was praying, Holy Spirit gave me a verse from the Bible. Let me tell you that the Spirit of God speaks in different ways. He speaks directly, He speaks through His word, He speaks through a man, He speaks through a wicked person. He speaks as He spoke to Balaam through a donkey.

At that time Proverbs 21:1 came in my mind which says, "The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes." So I thought, "if I go to my school, God will turn the hearts of school authorities in my favor and I will get my certificate. They will sign it and give it to me." I was worried how to ask for the certificate, how to apply for it? It was at that time that God gave me this verse.

But I did not have that much faith. How could I go alone to school? I was afraid as I had gone through so much of sufferings. So I opened the Bible and read from Isaiah 55:10 onwards. The verses 55:10-11 impressed me deeply in my heart which says, "For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it."

When I read those verses, I knew with confidence that God had started working from that night itself. In the morning I woke up and asked the servant of God, not on the assurance of anybody but solely on the assurance of the word of God, to arrange for a vehicle to go to my school. She asked, why? When I told her about those verses, revelations and vision, she said that it is the will of God and asked me to go ahead with my plan.

When I neared my school I saw my school teacher standing near the gate. When she saw the car entering inside, she came running, stopped the car and said, "Do not bring the car inside, but park by that side." At that time I was rolling the glass of window down. She looked at me through the glass, came running, put her head inside the car through the open window and asked, "Are you not Nazeela Beevi?" I said, "yes, but teacher, how did you recognize me?" Ignoring my inquiry She said, "park the car by that side I am coming". The car was parked and she came running, entered the car and said, "Do not open the door. Do not roll down the window glass. Also do not come out of the car." I again asked her, "teacher, tell me how you recognized me?" She asked me instead, "did you recognize me?" When I looked at her carefully, I realized that she was my class teacher in 6th grade. She is a Christian. She often observed me. Because I wore black covered dress, my face was also covered. Often the students who sat beside me would lift up my veil and look at my face. Then I used to complain to the teacher and she would look at me in a funny way. She remembered those moments. She loved me greatly.

That teacher told how some days back, my father came to the school and created great upheaval, disturbance and problems in the school. Thinking, that as the court is going to give judgment in his favor, on the suggestion of advocate I may go to school for getting the certificate my father came to school asking for the certificate. But school authorities did not give him. They said, "according to you she is your daughter, but certificate can be given only if she is here." So my father came to an agreement with them that if they are giving the certificate to me they should give only after informing my father. Also my father had arranged through his brother who is in school not to issue the certificate to me. Thus what I heard appeared to be contrary to the promises which was revealed to me by the Lord. But I was not discouraged. Instead, the assurance of the word of God came into my heart. Because through my experience I have learnt that the saying 'word of God is the hammer that breaks and shatters rock' is true.

But the teacher told me that she was eager to give me that certificate because of what happened to her the last night. She said that she could not get sleep. When asked, why? She said, "When this argument was going on, a thought came into my mind that because you loved the Lord, if I did not give you the certificate, perhaps one day God will ask me and accuse me. But where could I find you? If your family members come to know they will kill me. They will torture my family. I know how they had treated those who had given you shelter and supported you. This thought was the reason that I could not get sleep." I said, "teacher, it was not because of your thought that you lost your sleep. Yesterday night, the Lord told me that He will turn the hearts of authorities in my favor. Because of that, the presence of God filled your room and that was why you lost your sleep." God says that His word will not return without completing His work.

The teacher took my signature in a white paper. She herself wrote my application. She has the authority to work regarding the certificate. She went to the office room to prepare that transfer certificate in my name. She purchased document paper in my name, wrote my name and address, father's name and other details etc. and prepared the transfer certificate for 7th class. Now the signature of the headmaster was required at the bottom of the certificate. She told me that if the headmaster notices the stamp of the Government, he will get suspicious and then he will read towards the bottom and he will recognize you and inform your father. So pray that he may not notice it. Now he is busy with his work and so when I take this to him for signature, pray that he does not notice the symbol of Govt. and put his signature in between his busy rush of work.

I prayed, "Lord it was you who told me that you will be turning the hearts of authorities, now Lord, speak to the heart of the headmaster. When the teacher put up the certificate before the head master, he was signing the school papers after carefully reading every paper not simply signing. But he did not notice the government symbol on this paper. Below the stamp he did not notice my name and address or my father's name or anything else. He signed at the bottom of the certificate and gave it back to the teacher. Let me tell you that no employer would put their signature without carefully going through the papers. But let me tell you that Holy Spirit blinded his eyes and made him to put his signature on that paper.

Bible tells us that this world is under the hands of the wicked. This world's lord is Satan and this world is under his hands. You and I who live in this world, the almighty God who created us is obliged to execute righteous judgments for us. So if we serve the Lord faithfully, He is able to bring it to pass so that this world's authorities would come in favor of us.

So I came back home with the certificate in my hands.
