We are very happy and glad to bring out the Biography of Bro. R. Paulaseer Lawrie of India, a man chosen and used of God mightily in our generation. His followers believe that he has been revealed as the Son of Man and anointed Son of David that is to appear in these last days.
He is a Great Person whom we understand to be the Word of Life in human flesh and also the Faithful and True Witness according to the Scripture. He is also believed to be Christ, The Mighty Angel of Revelation 10 whose coming was foretold and forerun by the present day Elijah, Seventh Church Angel and Forerunner - William Marrion Branham.
What we have seen heard and handled of the Word of Life which was from the beginning and was made flesh in our days we declare and bring forth here for the reader so that you also may have fellowship with us in this glorious Truth and that your joy may be full.
This Biography had been already brought out earlier in the year 1973 by Brother Lawrence D. Dale of USA who had been in close association with Bro. William Branham and who had also come to India and stayed with Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie at the Manujothi Ashram for five years. The result of his work was the book titled "The Lightning From The East"
However mention should be made that there were also others who were involved in producing the book such as Bro. Manley Ottis Dobbins Jr., D.D., USA, Sister Susanna Dale Baker, daughter of Bro. L.D. Dale, USA, Dr. (Miss) Soundarabai Oliver, Dr. S.C. Jacob, Bro. J.W. Arulanandam, Rev. V. Jothipackiam, B.D., Sis. Priscilla Dorcas Samuel, Mr. P. J. Prasad, a news writer, Dr. Shiva N. Tewari, Ph.D., USA, Bro. Manfred Mengel of Germany and etc. without whose efforts it would not have been possible to bring out the book.
Since this book contains only the incidents up to the year 1973 it was found necessary to write everything that followed thereafter and also certain other things known only to the members of the Lawrie family. The believers and well-wishers of the ministry had requested me to write what I knew apart from that which is already given in the book for the benefit of one and all. I am not able to elaborate further since this edition is meant for the website.
I had no idea or intention to open a website for the Lawrie Ministries since it did not cross my mind. But Brothers Anand Mallikarjun and Alexander Prabhu Manickavasagam suggested the idea and encouraged me very much to open the website www.lawrieministries.net <http://www.lawrieministries.net> in September 2006.
Bro. Anand, being the webmaster also suggested that I put up the Biography of Bro. Lawrie on the website which seemed to be a grand idea. Therefore, taking this to be the leading of the Spirit of God, I had chosen to write what I knew in addition to what is already given in the book and host it on the website.
My son Ophir Raja Lawrie is a minister of the Word and has been of great help in the computer ministry. He has been maintaining the function of the computers and had seen to it that the computer always functioned properly. Thus the work could go on without let or hindrance. Mrs. Adelyn David, the Sister-in-law of Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie had been a moral support and a great encouragement in the ministry.
Mention also must be made of Bro. T. J. Chelliah an evangelist and an ex-officer of Indian Airlines who had known Bro. Lawrie from the 1950s, Bro. C. Andrews Ramakrishnan, Bro. V.A. Jeyapragasam, Bro. A. Vincent Jayakumar, Bro. A. Ezra Ebenezer and others whose help and cooperation made it possible to bring out the Biography at this time for the website.
I do sincerely hope that the readers would be enlightened and uplifted spiritually by the contents of this Biography so that they might understand the True Facts of these things wrought by the work of God in our generation through Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie and have the revelation of the Son of David.
