By Sherly Isaac

Valentine's Day is observed as a day of love on the 14th of February every year. But Bible talks about a steadfast love or everlasting love by which God loved us.

The story of God's love starts from Adam and Eve who were the first couple on earth created by God. God gave them everything to live, a blessed life. God put them in the best place where they could enjoy every moment of their lives. It was a delightful place. They were in a garden where all types of fruit trees were there and God gave them permission to eat every fruit of the garden except from one tree.

I just do not know how big that garden was and how many types of fruit trees were there. But the Bible gives us many clues that it could have been a very big garden. The garden was perfect and contained all that man needed: (1) food for sustenance (Gen 2:9); (2) work in caring for the garden (Gen 2:15); (3) creative leadership in the dominion over the animals (Gen 2:19, 20); (4) A river went out of Eden to water the garden and from there it parted and became four riverheads (Gen 2:10)

Now, God put Adam and Eve in this big garden to tend and keep it. And in Gen 2:16-17, the LORD God commanded the man, saying, "Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die."

Adam and Eve had freedom to eat from every tree of the garden, all kinds of fruits, except from one tree. I wonder, 'out of how many trees they could have eaten?' Probably they might never have tasted the fruits of many of the trees growing in the Garden of Eden. But that lonely forbidden tree became the center of their attraction. And that one forbidden tree was the reason for their destruction. Adam and Eve wavered from their faithfulness toward God. Their love was not steadfast toward God. The same thing was true regarding the next generations who came after Adam. God was not pleased on His own creation

Later God chose Abraham and His descendents and made a covenant with them. He carried them and brought them to the Promised Land, but this was their condition as written in Psa 78:36-37, "Nevertheless they flattered Him with their mouth, And they lied to Him with their tongue; For their heart was not steadfast with Him, Nor were they faithful in His covenant."

Still, God loved them and further we read that He showed compassion on them. Psa 78:38, "But He, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, And did not destroy them. Yes, many a time He turned His anger away, And did not stir up all His wrath;"

Though man was not faithful, though their love was not steadfast yet God sent His only Son to die for us. He loved us so much that He could not see us dying and so He did everything to save us. Jesus came in this world and died for us. Rom 5:6-8, "For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

My friend, God loved us so much that He gave Himself for us so that we could have eternal life. He promised to give eternal life to those who come to Him. No matter what you are going through, He loves you and wants to bless you with eternal life and with life full of joy and peace. Just come to Him...

As soon as my father returned, he started preparing everything for my marriage and within two days he invited all those people. And for this special ceremony to purify me, I was made to sit there before them. Water was kept there in a pot. Those priests will sit at one level and one place and from the same level and same place, they will be reciting Quran surahs in one rhythum and will blow over and into that water. After the power has fully entered in that water, they would be pouring the water over my head. Holding my head, Quran verses would be recited over my head and that would purify me. Then the powers ruling over me would leave me and I will become my old self. This was their purpose and aim. I have seen that this method had worked and had happened exactly as intended with so many girls. I have seen and experienced a difference in those girls.

At that moment a fear came in my heart, "Jesus, their intention is to make me like old one. If I had to become like that, I have to forget you. If I have to forget you, I should lose my right mind. Their act is an act of binding my right mind. It is an act of erasing my memory. If they are successful and the fruit of their act is revealed then my memory would be erased. So I said, "Lord when you came down in my prayer room, because the walls of the room shook, I believe that there is no other power above your power and I believe that, that power would come down and deliver me at this very moment." When I was saying like that, the Muslim priests came near me with that water to pour over me. When they were approaching me, as if somebody was pushing them back, they ran backward. They tried one more time and had the same experience. A fear came into their hearts.

I could not understand what happened to them. I thought, what could have happened to them? I also jumped and stood up on my feet. Everyone else also stood up. There was a commotion, What happened? What happened? When the commotion subsided, they slowly started telling that, "the power enveloping her is not a magnetic power, but a fence of fire surrounding her."

When this mighty power was revealed among the Muslim priests, a great courage, a great confidence came into my heart that, "even if the whole world would go against me, still the God who made this world is with me. The God who came down in my prayer room to call me has not gone up, but is still with me: He did not leave me alone or did not go up but He is still with me."

It is written in the Bible that, "the God who called you is faithful", "I will be with you even to the end of the age", "I have overcome the world"... but at that time I did not know these Bible verses. In those days there was nobody to strengthen me, telling me these verses, as I did not know any servant of God, any believer, prayer worrier or someone who knew the Bible. Further no gentiles could have entered in our compound. Even if someone touched our boundary wall, my father would cleanse the wall; that is the type of man my father is. No person belonging to a different religion had permission to enter our home. I did not know any Christian. My land is a land where there were no Christians, but only Muslims. Every moment I had been seeing only the tradition and routine of how Allah is being worshipped, and hearing only the Quran Surahs. After knowing Jesus, I have not come in contact with any children of God who had experienced the presence of Jesus or any work connected with His mighty acts and deeds or any such circumstances as my family has no contact with any of these activities. But it happened that Lord Jesus started to live in my heart. On that day that light which came down in my prayer room along with the presence of God' permeated through my bones, my veins, and have started living in me.
