The Revival of the Global Church

There is a story of love and sacrifice in the story of our Christ Jesus.  WE knew as Christian’s that we are saved by Jesus Christ who shed blood at the cross and overcame death.   That though we are sinners and so unworthy to be called as God’s children, Jesus surrendered his life as an atonement of our sins worthy and acceptable to God. 

xxx11 So remember that once you were Gentiles by physical descent, who were called “uncircumcised” by Jews who are physically circumcised. 12 At that time you were without Christ. You were aliens rather than citizens of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of God’s promise. In this world you had no hope and no God. 13 But now, thanks to Christ Jesus, you who once were so far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ x x x

God saved us Christians who believe and have faith with God. We are now called as Children of God.   We are not identified by being Gentiles or Jews, but we are one, and called Christians, the Children of God.   

1Behold what manner of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God. And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him. (1 John 3.1)

The world did not know you because they did not know God, in Jesus Christ.  Now it is our job to let the world know the grace given to us, because God said in John 3:16, For God so love the WORLD” x x x did not say, loved the Christians or disciples who are following with God or those who know Christ, but the world.   He desire the world to know him and what he sacrificed on the cross, so that by knowing, they will believe, and those who believed will be saved.   ” For whoever believed in him shall be saved” x x x. so he asked you… in Matt. 28.19-20

 Matthew 28:19 
19“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 

20teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

so that like us many will be saved by his grace thru faith in him as Saviour.

 John 3:16 

16For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that everyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. 

But there is a problem because there is only 2% in Asia, who is doing the teaching of the Gospel.  How can people be saved for something that nobody had told them, how can they believe in something they don’t know?

          I give a story of Ruth as an example. Do you some of you knew that Ruth the daughter in-law of Naomi is actually a Moabites? Do you know who is the God of Moabites and who are they? Well, for those who want a little bit of history and knowledge, Actually Ruth is a Moabite. She was raised in like a Monastery of Women, trained to be a Priestess when she was young.  They are under the protection and shelter of a King.   When she was young like at age of 8/9 years old, a young girl who is bright and beautiful.  She is quick to learn and understand the teachings of the Priestess during that time.   And this young girl turned to be a beautiful Young Lady in the Castle or Kingdom in which she gain favour in the eyes of the King and the Leader of the Priestess.  That time she is training a young Girl 8/9 years old, this Young girl is soon to be offered to the altar for a Pagan gods, people in the kingdom mostly the king believe that a Young child, with no blemish beautiful and no damage, in short perfect in his beauty if serve to their gods, they will have a good harvest of the land and they will be spared from all kinds of calamity.  

Now this young girl is under the teachings of the Ruth, for the poem she is going to recite before she is sacrificed.  Now before the day, this child had a dream of what happened to her, she told it to Ruth, and Ruth’s heart melted, and in her heart, she felt that something is wrong. She felt that the child is very scared, and she understand that and she is so sad about it too, imagine, she is the one raising the child in the palace, teaching every day, she is the teacher of the child, to whom she share the story of her family, and her little life time story, you know… of course we know our affections towards that child.  And the hard part of it, is Ruth is her childhood of the same age, she was taken to bring to the palace when they said she is the choosen one, she taught she was special.  During the selection the king  or whoever head of the palace choose a child to sacrifice, young girls fall in line, in which they will be a point a child, and of course, there is a kind of competition among them of who is good, and who can please the king. They don’t have a clue that the chosen one, will lay down and her face will be covered with black cloth to prevent them seeing what will happen, and suddenly a knife struck to their chest and a blood will shed to that altar made of stones, and once she is dead, the ritual is completed, and the people dance around, shouting, rejoicing, claiming that their land is blessed by their gods.   These scenario is very real to Ruth, and that kind of scenario when you put it to yourself that it was supposed to happened to you , years ago, 18 or 20 years ago,  Ruth’s feelings is scared and troubled and confused and felt it so wrong.   Because she felt that if it happened to her before, she was long dead.   She was the child being bright and beautiful as I told you, she pleased the king because she could recite the poem quickly and nicely.   But when she was chosen, suddenly a red rash appeared to her right arms, so the king noticed that she is not perfect, and she is not accepted.  She wonder why the red rash  just appeared, it was clearly not there awhile ago, but then suddenly it was disappeared, but she had no Clue that time that God is watching her, though she did not know God at all. She is following to worship to the pagans gods.  

It was in her time when she is a priestess, that God started to intercede in her life thru the son of Naomih named Mahlon, who at that time, full in love to Ruth a priestess, and married her.  Their love story, though I have knew a few, I will not tell you, because I did not know if it is true or not, I reserved it to myself because for me it is wonderful story and how it transformed Ruth of her faith between the Pagan gods, and the invisible Mighty God of Mahlon (Though I do not have supporting documents or readings that this is really the story, so until could confirmed, I will not tell the story of them further) anyway, we go back to Mahlon who told to Ruth the story of their mighty God, who set free their tribes from slavery of Egypt to the crossing of the Jordan, and being brought to the said promised land. It was of this story, that Ruth heard and believe and made her fall in love to Mahlon, well apart from Mahlon being described as handsome and masculine man.  Ruth Married Mahlon, and accept in her life the God of his husband and worship him in her heart.  Then later on Mahlon died, and the other son of Naohmi named Chillion also died, he was also had a Moabite wife named Orpha.  

I would say, from the faith of Mahlon, he harvested Ruth from the Moabite,  disciple her and become the soul for the Lord.  It is in that kind of faith, that so amazing how God works in Ruths life, and how that mustard faith in Ruth that grows for her to travel with her mother in law Naohmi to go back to Bethlehem or Judea and said “ “Do not urge me to leave you, to turn back and not follow you. For wherever you go, I will go; wherever you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. Thus and more may the Lord do to me if anything but death parts me from you.” (Ruth 1:16–17 NJPS).xxx

But now a days we have a problem, because very few of us has that kind of time or enthusiastic to tell people the story of our lord of how they change lives after lives of so many people.  We are busy dealing our life, and we are so struggling in dealing our problems of the flesh, the problem for our soul is set aside, for we have to sort out what are facing today, and we think hugely that it is something, the Lord has nothing to do with us…  We try to think,  Lord,  I have to work for my daily bread, and for my bills, and for kids education, and for the insurance, for pension in my time when I am old, I have seen the hard life of others and I don’t want to be one of them, so I will make my preparation now, and so on and so on…  WE set aside the task while are here in the world, and what is Gods purpose for us  here,  we so much utilized our freedom, anyway lord, you give us intelligence and free will, this is all I need, do not disturb me for I am busy!  Im gonna do, what you want me to do, but after this first… Now this is a problem, because we put our self first! Our own sake, and our own gain ang profit, our problems, happiness, achievements first. Always first and for God, the promise for tomorrow, that when tomorrow comes, another thing comes, another priority comes and again, another tomorrow is for the Lord… Now tell me, this is not true ??? but it is isn’t it?

But who is our creator? To whom we belong? Are we belong to this earth? Or you belong to God? You need to choose… and you choose now… Do you prefer to belong to this earth? But this earth will perish? Are you belong to God? But you are not doing what God asked you to do? You are not doing the anything that has to do with the Matthew 28.19-20;  you are not doing anything or saying anything about the John 3.16, or di you tell the story of the Mighty hand of Egypt freeing the slaves and brought them to promised Land? Did you tell the story how Joshua and his God attacked Jericho and the Ai?  Did you do what the teachings of Jesus Christ in this Generation, did you do anything at all that has something to do with your God?  Well, u did pass the 10 commandements…  if you say that, well good, you are a good person,  You say go to church, not steal, not lie as you can, not covet neighbors wife,  a good neighbor, help brother, or sister… is that enough?  But that’s living… how about the purpose?  Are you just living and not serving the greatest purpose? Is that enough? Well, you say, I did what I can do best, oh don’t tell me that’s your best!… is that it? You know its not your best shot… or not tell me… I am just a writer, tell that to God… depend yourself… because God asked you… and you hear this…

 Matthew 9:36 
      36Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd. 

37Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. 

38“Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”

Join us to preach the Gospel of the Lord so that…

Xxx “ and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 12 Therefore, my loved ones, just as you always obey me, not just when I am present but now even more while I am away, carry out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” xxx

 

Our Speaker of the Day is Malia, Missionary serving in Pakistan.

In 1994, there are about 4, 000 Christians in Iraq.   Now minimum 5M Christians in Iraq.

The Holy Spirit is working and one day someone had asked me how the Iranian becomes Christians such a way of heavy surveillance and prosecution. This what he told me, an Iranian Christian have fellow Christian who have a Muslim friend. At the beginning is not easy to talk Jesus, if he want to talk about Jesus, he has to give a sign to his friend, like do u have a cup of tea? And that is the sign between to them that if he wants to talk about Jesus, they use that because there are Iranian police who will be watching. 

So one time a friend agree to have a tea, then he comes and their Christians and share his faith and talk about Jesus Christ.  Most likely, if not the muslim asked the question, the Christian asked the question, like Do you know such a man called Jesus? And Christian talk about Jesus, and later on, after the conversation mostly likely the Muslim say, I also want to believe Jesus, the Christians will  ask, Do u know that is hard for Muslim muslim know  Jesus because you might face prosecution.  You know that Christians in this country are presecuted if they will know that you are worshiping or reading the bible of Christians.  That having a Christian life here is very hard.

Would you still want to become Christians? The amazing this is , once this people heard about Jesus Christ, and his promised of Salvation, they wanted to know more, it is so amazing how the power of the HolySpirit… and to some Muslim Christians, despite the prosecution, they are willing to follow Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord, our God is a living God.

In Afghanistan, You know Afghanistan that it is a very strong Islamic Nation, a war in there in 40 years,  so it very common for afghan to have someone in the fam who dies,  n gone to so much hard, so poor to accept Jesus. You know when a situation of people where they are very desperate for help for a better life, not better as better than the poor we know, but very desperate to hold life in balance with peace.  Apart from struggling the food,  the trouble and stress of being in the middle of war?  If you show up there and say, you know what, I know a man who can save us all these and actually he is a man of honour, a man of word, and a man who speaks and fulfil what he speaks of? Anyone, anyone will go to you and say, I want in…  

If you go Afghanistan and you visit people there and are able to ask their stories about their life and their faith, you will be surprised to know that many Muslims have lost their faith is Islam.  And now they are in the middle of the wonder if to whom are they going to put their faith.  Now these people are the Lord is talking about the harvest. These people who need more of a savior than anyone anyone who’s life the in the good shape.

xxxthe following paragraph need to be edited

,  so no 1 figure num of chirsitan in afghan world, bt f u go afgahan and met locals, you met a lot of _______; agnostic people, many people have lost faith in Islam.  They are ungergrond church, (christiians) are dedicated life to preach the Gospel of Christ as well.  They sent student missionary for the 1st time last year, on the 2 young people ave Christians two years ago only, after vision school and after VS they go and preach in Afghan, how mny of u go to Afghan to preach the Gospel? Raise ur hand

 

Guessing not many of u will want to go afghan most people know Pakistan land of Terrorist and people scared to come to apakistan but their afgahan ang pakistand brothers, evangelized to Pakistan and Afgahan, Praise the Lord,

 

The Pakistani amy operation against Taliban, and right now pretty much no presence of Taliban in Pakistan.  I know the media, not tell u ds news, Pakistan such a land who are blessed with nice people who lieve here, so don’t be scared to come to Pakistan. Lets go back to our sisters and broethers, this Pakistan went 5 months ago.

Most afgah hate Pakistan most of them, two brothers, despite this kind of relations, they decide to gopackitastan, and then they came,  the friend to stay in one of the major city,  preparing to receive the they thought its better to go other place called pshuwa, 2 bro arrived, and see the situations say,

 

We want to go back to preach to the people who want the Gospel of the Lord . The lord, our Paki and Afgahn borther, successfully preach the lord, in the past weeks, its so amazing how God, in the Holy spirit works in the life of these Mis.

And they prayer is to to have many chiristians to send int o the field, to the same Goal, amazing ot see how God, strengthen afgani Christian so quivkly .

2M muslim, there is local church which  UK colonised india visionary came and preach the Gospel and theats that Christinaity begins, but the muslims discriminate and prosecute the Christians, those who live in Pakistan who are Christians do not even say hello to them, or talk to them.. But even the Muslim Christians who had the Gospel still talk or Allah because of fear of their life, or prosecution, in the eyes of Muslim, Christians are the poorest of the poor in reality to them, the Christians, they are poor.

 

People love money in Pakistan, when 1st come to pakistand 2011, my collegoue tod me there is no hope in Pakistan.   L  They sajre tjat realy hard bt cnot overcome the money issue and the  fear. But God, started vision school in 2014, this is the pics of 1st granduateion

 

First time of their life, well to us normal to pay our own fee, but to Pakistan totally new, to pay their own fees, their very poor and their missionaries are rich, they are receiving ___ for thousand years, think its normal for their to missioanries to pay the fee, but in this situation,

 

Seek ye first, Matthew 23.

We explain to them to learn how to depend on foreigners but depend on God. Amen…. Halleluyeah…  so 20 people VS, towards the end of the class, 7 of them… zoc one month salary will go to their FO. So , at the end 30 people willing people who are willing to pay so that Fo can be attend by those people who wants to Fo, but eventually only 5 went, y? Fear, xoz never preach gospel to Muslim people they have not seen, pastor, friends, preaching the muslims, they are scared and a lot of them drop of them drop out, then only 5 went to FO.

IN fear in beginning , surprised that they are niced Muslims and they were invited to have coffee and tea.. but surprised them the most when they preached the Gospel some of them wanted to know more about Jesus. (Praise the Lord) the Glory is yours Lord oh God, and they were so blessed.  Long story life, their life transformed and they have like blessed and come back to their town and they share their story and mobilise the people into the V.S. and after 2nd V; 3=slowly of local Christians were committed to preach the Gospel to Muslims, but each time, we mobilise VS not many people willing to pay money for the FO,  we only 20-30 to come VS . bt, w/ 7 people to Giug to AFgan, they will change things, so these 7 people,  (in the pics, showing Visa pics) so, they are the first Pakistani Christians who went t  AFgahn to preach the Gospel of the Lord.  So, the day before departure, one bro came to me and ask to pray for him, sd, he is scared to go, think I will be killed f go to afghan, worried aout him, bec he might be also not going to afghan bt on the ff day is was still there.  And then these 7 went to Afganistan they were scared, bt they still went, because they have the vision of God in hearts, scared but still go share the words of God and share the good news in the Afgahn, long story short, the have so much blessings,  and the two people received most blessings, who were investigated police, spend two days priceson cel.   When asked by police, they said preach the Gospel and found there was wrong they released them, they saw small drum, asked them to paly a song, hence, they play the Christians songs, upset police man sent them to prison cel again, but happened? When the y enter, atctually 2 taliban, police caught Taliban, and they were in the cel, so they get more scared, and they keep silent, while there, bt the nicest Christians in the celmates was actually Taliban! Taliban take care of them, they told them not tob escared, police will release and Talban are good to them, when found out they are Christians, said, therse Christians, die one day and go to hell. As this Christians how much Taliban cared anout them, and worried, will be save, it really broke their heart.   We have the trut, and they don’t, we will be save, and they wont be saved, but worried salvation, not sitting here, not sharing the gospel, so the holy spirit convicted his heart, overcoming his fear, he finally preach gospel to Taliban, Taliban upset, but listen to the message of the Gospel, so 2 days later, police release their and return to FO and , and theis 7 people mobilise another VS so this time many people comes to VS.  how was that possible? No matter how scared and feses, they overcome these and attended vision School, 47 went to dff. Church share testimony how much Jesus loved his peole and specially these two person who went to cel with  Taliban,  have sstrongest testimony. They shared that God loved Pak so much, and  and so many chrisitinas responded to the testimonies and lot of htem went to the VS. so befire used to have 4/5 schools, turns to be  and now___, each school  50-40 students,so this is the pics, VS graduation day.    Therew as huge VS graduates after this breakthough in the FO in Pak. , 4 years ago, spend our 1st SM in Iran, end Iran, 3rd iran, no expection about the SM,  we are so melted, but God is so good, we its turns out good.   Then one asked me the VS materials, then asked y? said, he was to VS to Iran, and asked u want to learn to Iran how can u lecture?  He said, he can do it, thought he was jst exaggerated, I could have fight over the phone so, I send the lesson matterials, 4 mos. Later, we have int. conference in Turkey, WGs, many Iranian Christians and many came to conference and two of them graduate of VS and actually went SM.

x x x25 This is because the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.

26 Look at your situation when you were called, brothers and sisters! By ordinary human standards not many were wise, not many were powerful, not many were from the upper class. 27 But God chose what the world considers foolish to shame the wise. God chose what the world considers weak to shame the strong. 28 And God chose what the world considers low-class and low-life—what is considered to be nothing—to reduce what is considered to be something to nothing. 29 So no human being can brag in God’s presence. 30 It is because of God that you are in Christ Jesus. He became wisdom from God for us. This means that he made us righteous and holy, and he delivered us. 31 This is consistent with what was written: The one who brags should brag in the Lord!a] (1 Cor. 1.25-31)

 

Reveal the power of the Lord, to these nations to reveal for his Glory…   the rich and the strong who use the to brag the things of the world, became humble under the power of the word of God, Praise the Lord. 

 

Last year, strong amazing revival in Pak. As you all know Covid 19 heat the world and we all have lock downs, so the Pakistani now in have all mask, shurtdown due to covid, but this Pakistani, prayed no matter how severe the prosecuretion, continue to preach the Gospel fo God,  but the government lock down they were confused and don’t know what to do,  the gov. if people have meeting, to have pay huge amt of fine, and prison, say remember about

 

xxx Daniel.  6. The king signa dn annount the law the next day people obey and worship the Idol of the king as God, and if nayone break the law, this person sent to the Lion Den.  Daniel very well about this very law, what did he do, he want back home? Open the window, and pray to God, the way he always do, Daniel could have waiting days then have no problem, he could have wasting Gods time, for 30 days, but he was worshipping God, so what happened, he was sent to Lion Den.  But God,  saved them, so our Pakistani brothers,despite the covid, went and continuously preach the Gospel of the Lord, people have gather around have worshipped together. xxx

These people are glad to receive the Gospel of the Lord, of course some pastors and Christians upset about such way of worship and started to have worship on the rooftop of house, Pakistan is poor ountries, houses so close h other, we have 10 people to 15-on the  each roof, then the next roof and them we worshipped together, it was an amazing blessings, then they start, they want to have VS . asked them, think pastor open ther church? Said, theydont know bt we have to tru w/c we did, and invited people and only pastors open church and 700 ppl from different cities comes to VS.  it was largest nos. ever for VS. inpast was 400 largest,  bt in voidd why took the rest,  and now 700 and have VS??? so , 400 draudates, and 200 went to Mission Trip, inside the Pakistan, 200 visited to diff. villages preaching the gospel, and lots of peole accepted Christ. Amazing works of God in sch amazings number of people.   

Brother A… he said I am not ashamed to preach the truth. He was of faith of the people, he loved Jesus, he wants to prach the Gospel and carry on. And last year Dec. he was martyr, his co worker who is muslim killed him in the factory. Worried about the family memenbers and other Christians handle ths  murder, on the day of funeral told staff, he said to us, Congratulations, my son became of bvcecame Doctors, and martyrs, Pakistan will rise, I will also give for Pakistan, he shouted REvial==val. We will so shock to his response, he joined in FO many times before we knew his faith was strong, but we didn’t really expecting to thanks god to give glory from his family members, no dought his heart was broken than hew htnat meet his son in heaven soon (meet)* and was so suprised how he made his father, and confessed t the crowsds, we haeve so mnay young christians dies in early age, but they all die, drugs or alcohol or fighting, but this Bro. died for the Gospel fr  Jesus. He is the 1st martyr and we are so proud borther and we will also follow hispath, continue to the Gospel to complete the Vision of God, we were all blessed by his model. And too months later, two our staff preaching the gospel in the park  and accused of blasspemy, and one of them arrested and the other is hiding.  I think heard their confession, and one broter, prison still in prison today.

 

And the police investigation still going on. All difficulties, and the rist of the staff began VS 2 week ago.  I ave asked one leader, r u not scard, bt he smiled then, he told me whener aoubt that bro in prison, I received more passion and go preach to the gospel and he gave big smile again, and the two people went to AFgahinistan to in nd the rest of the 3 (in photos went to 2 weeks ago, so 5 WG went to Irag, despite imprisonment God, has sent WG, to the nations, and we wonder how is it posble, ? lets read

 

xxx25 This is because the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.

26 Look at your situation when you were called, brothers and sisters! By ordinary human standards not many were wise, not many were powerful, not many were from the upper class.

 27 But God chose what the world considers foolish to shame the wise. God chose what the world considers weak to shame the strong.

 28 And God chose what the world considers low-class and low-life—what is considered to be nothing—to reduce what is considered to be something to nothing.

 29 So no human being can brag in God’s presence. 

30 It is because of God that you are in Christ Jesus. He became wisdom from God for us. This means that he made us righteous and holy, and he delivered us. 31 This is consistent with what was written: The one who brags should brag in the Lord!a]xxx

 

It is promised here they are receiving this spiritual life. They have this joy, passion, they have strong faith. Imagine, you see, imprisonment, and prosecution to see physical imfprisonment, whwat happened to yur life?  Even though your flesh live, your spirit dies, but our Pakistan bros. their physical body dies, but their spirit lives, in the last day when they face to jesus, what are they going to jesus,  “  x xx Good and faithful servants,””” x

 

Uf we turn around and failed our mission hat would happened  to us,?
What Jesus said?

X x xTake Up Your Cross
25What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, yet lose or forfeit his very self? 26 If anyone is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. 27But I tell you truthfully, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God.”…xxx
