Editorial

By Sherly Isaac

In the Bible we read that the words written are for guidance and that they reveal what things are ahead of us. Whatever we see happening today is not anything new but have already been recorded in the Bible beforehand for us so that we could be alert seeing those signs being fulfilled.

Not only that but God gave His Holy Spirit so that Holy Spirit could reside in a blood washed child of God who is washed by the blood of Jesus. As we read in John 16:13, "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come."

When my dad was very sick in the year 2005, he was in the hospital for two long months. When he came back home, we asked him what he was feeling in the hospital? He said, "I do not remember anything except that the whole time it was like a dream. I felt as if I am up above in the air from where I could view the whole earth as a globe. I could see the space between the two latitudes about 45° North and 45° South and I saw molten rock (lava) started flowing from the left end of the globe. Towards the right side I saw a group of ladies joyfully preparing food in a grand scale for a big feast unaware of the coming disaster. Still towards the right side I saw Jesus catching fish with fishing rod in His hand. Finally I saw the lava covering the whole area between those latitudes destroying every thing on the way from left to right as the earth rotated at least seven times."

Then my dad felt as if Jesus was giving a message of urgency to save as many people as possible from the coming disaster in this world. And more than that Jesus wants to save us from eternal damnation.

How many of us are just not caring anything and living our lives as if we have to live in this earth forever. But even the next moment is not promised for us. Our end can come at any time but the question is whether we are prepared to meet our creator? Are we ready to escape disaster of our own soul? Jesus came in this world to save us from our sins and from hellfire. He came to give us eternal life. When Jesus is ready to save us why we should be unprepared and why face the judgment of God?

Jesus said in John 5:24, "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life."

John 3:16-18, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into this world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."

Today Jesus is ready to forgive and forget all your sins and ready to give you eternal life. Come to Jesus; accept Him as your Lord and Savior so that you could avoid eternal death and enter into eternal life.

From Death to Life - Part 2

Life story of Bro. Parminder Puri

And yes, our Sikh scriptures would only give momentary relief but that too only sometimes. I would spend hours in my room meditating in front of pictures of Gurus etc. And there were regular serious attacks on us – near fatal accidents/illnesses. Of course I remember how tired I became at one point – rushing everywhere for peace and freedom from evil spirits – which were also affecting my health , career etc. I was on a liquid diet for many months, and had regular severe aches in tummy, for years, which could never be diagnosed. At a point of time (1992), I lost so much weight; my skin became dark and wrinkles started forming on my face. I could not even sip a cup of tea and used to envy others, seeing them gorge on simple snacks like samosa! (a favourite North Indian dish)

I still remember once when my sister almost died coughing, and my aunt who would send attacks on us through black magic (she used to stay with us) pretended to be very caring but I could sense her glee from inside. She had gifted a sweater on my sister’s birthday and as soon as my sister wore it, she went down. Oh how my poor parents must have felt at that time. I realize this now, as I add on to the years. My younger brother also was not spared of demonic attacks. I still remember my mother's tears, she would sit down and cry and wonder what was happening and would there ever be respite from all this. Now my heart goes out to her, I can imagine how she must have felt.

My aunt it seems had pledged to wipe out our family. She had also openly confessed her jealousy for our family. Even now I shudder to think of her menacing eyes! My mother, being a very holy lady and simple at heart was shown visions many a times as to who was behind all these attacks. Even in Gurdwara she would have visions about the person who was determined to wipe us out. Once again, I would reiterate "regular meditation of the scriptures could not save us, they can show you visions etc but cannot give permanent freedom from evil."

Once I questioned our Babaji (spiritual leader) how he was powerful. He used to tell us that he communicated with his Guru in spiritual world. I asked him, "Can't you get us permanent deliverance from evil spirits and make us immune to their attacks?" He said he could only keep them at bay. He told us he had stood like a rock between evil spirits and our family. I am still grateful to him for that because he used to take our troubles on him – according to him.

Then amidst many struggles, our home was sold in 1992, and we shifted to a nearby locality. But the visits of my aunt never stopped. In 1998, she gifted a hand made sweater to my sister. The moment my sister wore it, her health started deteriorating. So we again sought solace in Babaji and our scriptures & we had full faith in them. Soon my sister started losing weight, her complexion drained from her face; her eyes became big and scary and she started having hallucinations. She stopped responding to us also, at times. Of course I fought with her saying, "you are in bad company etc." Then one day Babaji told us that the sweater gifted to my sister was sprinkled with ashes from the dead, coupled with deadly Muslim tantrik mantras, of the worst kind, whose antidote was not known.

And then the axe fell! Babaji suddenly withdrew himself. It was almost as if he had sensed something evil, and was concerned about his own safety instead! But he asked us to have faith in God and keep praying the chants, scriptures etc.

To be continued.....

From our Readers

This morning as I was checking my internet I found the "In Search of Peace" and the teaching of the great Prophets in the Bible this has blessed me so much, I will be happy to recieve your teaching more. I believe you will consider me as your partner in the Lord Jesus Christ. Your teaching about Hagar whom the Lord opened a way, for this Lady in distress, has changed my way of thinking and I thank God for this. once again thank you so much for your kind consideration. May God richly bless you in Christ.
