|Dearly Beloved In Christ Jesus,|
Greetings in the sweet and precious name of Christ Jesus, Our Lord, Saviour & Redeemer !
At the time of New Year and other times of festivals people celebrate and send greetings, wishing their friends and loved ones Happiness, Prosperity and Blessings.
For the people of the world, Prosperity and Blessings mean only the General Physical Well-being and also being engulfed by Power, Popularity, Money, Love and Affection and Luxury. If they have the above things, they think they have everything in Life. To attain these pleasures, they try to move heaven and earth by all available means and manage to succeed mostly.
People mostly get the things they seek after. These things that we see are only temporal and not Spiritual or Eternal. That is the reason why when people come to the end of their lives, they find themselves bankrupt in spiritual life, desperately trying to find where they are going to end up and are lost eternally. As sure as we live and stand on this earth, there is a Life after death and when the people of the world come to understand that, it is virtually too late.
But, for the Truly Spiritual People, all these things mentioned above mean nothing to them even if available because their eyes are on things unseen which are Eternal. In this earthly life, they prepare for another world just like a chick inside the egg is made to develop for a life outside the egg-shell in the outer world which is entirely different. Therefore, it makes one wonder whether it is possible to lead a life in this world to prepare oneself for another different life in a different dimension. In other words, is it possible to live in this world and still be in contact with heaven at the same time? Let us scan through a few examples to find out the Truth of the matter.
Abraham, our forefather, though very wealthy was living in tents as a pilgrim on earth, looking for a city with foundations whose builder and maker is God Himself ( Heb.11: 8-10).
Jacob could see a ladder on the earth reaching heaven. He could see angels of God ascending and descending on it and also the Lord who stood above it and he called the place, 'The House of God' and 'The Gate of Heaven'. His only earthly expectation or requirement was just some food and clothing and safety for his survival (Genesis 28: 12-17, 20-22). His Spiritual insight was so much that he could foretell the future of his 12 sons and their tribes (Genesis 49:1-33).
Joseph, a man with great spiritual insight was hated by many including his own brothers. His enemies grieved him sorely and attacked him but his hands were strengthened by the mighty God of Jacob his father. His fathers blessings prevailed above the blessings of his father's progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills (Genesis 49: 22-26).
Moses the Prophet, in his earthly life had the privilege of the Lord speaking to him Face to face. He was not satisfied with it and he desired all the more to see the Glory of the Lord of which he saw the backside (Exodus 33: 11,18-23).
King David, though a great Monarch and Warrior was desirous of dwelling in the house of the Lord all the days of his life, to behold the beauty (glory) of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple (Psalm 27: 1-4). He received the promise of God that his seed would establish his throne for ever in the last days and that his seed would be made the Son of God (Word of God or First Born) and that his kingdom would be God's Kingdom itself lasting for ever (II Samuel 7: 12-19, I Chronicles 17: 11-17, Psalm 89: 3-4, 19-20, 26-37). It means that The Word of God or The First Born would again incarnate in a man born in the Line of David and become one with him (Word becoming Flesh) with a different name (New Name) so that this Son of David would be Son of God Himself. He would also be the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords (Psalm 89: 26-27, Revelation 19: 11-16). In this context, it would be prudent to mention that when the Word was made flesh in the First Advent of Christ as Jesus, Jesus was not of the seed of David as he was born to a virgin, conceived of the Holy Ghost. The seed always comes through a man and Jesus was not born to a man. Jesus was caught up to the Throne of God and became the Word again and appeared in the Light to Apostle Paul and in Theophany to Apostle John. We do not know Him in Flesh anymore for He became the Word again. Jesus, The Word would incarnate again in the Son of David in the Last days as the Lion of the Tribe of Juda to finish the mystery of God. This Son of David is cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ and is clothed with the vesture dipped in blood which makes him Holy, Pure and Sinless for the Word of God Jesus to come down and incarnate in him (Revelation 5:5, 10: 1-7,19: 11-16).
Enoch, living his earthly life with his wife and children, walked with God for years when God took him away without death (Genesis 5: 21-24, Hebrews 11: 5-6).
Elijah too was a man subject to like passions as we are. He could stop the rain, he could pray and bring forth rain and he could call fire from heaven at will. He could raise the dead and work miracles. The worldly people could not see his closeness to God and tried to exterminate him as the world was not worthy of him. But God took him away into heaven without death.(James 5: 17-18, II Kings 2: 11).
Daniel was always seeking after the heavenly mysteries and secrets and received them from God in his visions even though he was the Chief of Governors inBabylon. He saw the beginning and ending of Babylonian Empire. He saw the beginning and the ending of the Gentile dispensation. He saw the Coming of Christ as The Stone untouched by human hands that broke all the gentile kingdoms, establishing the Future Kingdom which would never be destroyed (Daniel 2: 44). He wanted to know more about the End of the things he saw. But the Lord told him to rest till the end of days and come up and stand in his lot when the dead saints rise (Daniel 12: 8-13).
Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were willing to sacrifice their earthly lives for the sake of the heavenly laws and their stand was vindicated by the Son of God Himself descending to the earth and walking with them in the fire to deliver them (Daniel 3: 1-30).
John The Baptist, whose birth brought about some supernatural things, would have been the next High Priest (Bishop) after his father Zachariah. But he left home when he was 9 years and stayed in the wilderness. He did not have a theological education but he was in communion with God for 21 years. When he came back to the country thereafter, his ministry shook the country. With the power of God he possessed, he preached against the clergy of the same Jewish Church of which he would have been Bishop had he stayed at home (Matthew 3: 7-12). In fact he was the Last Messenger to the Jewish Church before Christ. He had the ministry of Elijah of turning the people back to the Word. He was also the forerunner to the First Coming of Christ and introduced Jesus to the world as The Lamb of God. The Church never recognized John the Baptist or his ministy , but it was Jesus Christ who acknowledged who he was. Jesus Christ was baptized by this man who had no theological education, no decent food to eat and no decent dress to wear and no robe or shirt on (Matthew 3: 4).
John, The Apostle was loved by Jesus on the earth and he was so close to God in spirit that he was given the Book of Revelation of Jesus Christ, by Jesus Himself appearing to him in Theophany and revealing him the things that must shortly come to pass (Revelation1: 1-20).
Apostle Paul was a great Theologian. In his ministry of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ, he suffered a lot physically, but, he did not cringe or slacken his quest for Spiritual things (II Corinthians 11: 23-33). He was granted the privilege of being caught up into Paradise and receiving great heavenly secrets which normal human beings could never hope to receive (II Corinthians 12: 1-10). He was glorying in his sufferings. He compared the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus and the Power of His resurrection to all the sufferings he underwent. All the worldly things he had lost he counted them as dung just to know Christ and attain unto the resurrection of the dead (Philippians 3: 7-14). When he came to the end of his life, he was not bankrupt but said, "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith and henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness" (II Timothy 4: 6-8).
|The Present Day|
After going through all the examples mentioned above, we can see that it is possible to live a life, walking with God on this earth itself and understand the heavenly secrets. In the days of Jesus Christ many supernatural things took place with regard to His birth and ministry. But the people of the Jewish Church did not know them or recognize them and just went on as before. In fact the Jewish Church was the Antichrist in that the hierarchy stood against the True Christ - Jesus, oblivious to the fulfilment of the Scriptures.
In our generation too, many supernatural things have taken place fulfilling the prophecies of the Bible concerning the Second Coming of Christ and the Last days. Most of the Christians are oblivious to them all and do not have any idea of what to look for. There are certain things a spiritual Christian ought to know.
Did you know that we are in the Last days at the End of the Gentile Dispensation? (Matthew 16: 1-3).
Did you know that there has to be an Elijah before the great and dreadful day of the Lord to forerun the Coming of Christ in these Last days? (Malachi 4: 5-6).
Did you know that the City of Jerusalem came under the control of Israel totally in June 1967 fulfilling the words of Jesus Christ " Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled"? (Luke 21: 24).
Did you know that Christ has to descend from heaven down to the earth to take His Bride at His Second Coming, (which the Christians Call as the Rapture), ending the Christian Age? (I Thessalonians 4: 14-18).
Did you know that the generation that sees the Jews becoming a Nation should see all the end time signs fulfilled? (Matthew 24: 32-35).
Did you know that the Great Light of God which was manifesting in the ministry of John the Baptist, has been manifesting again in our generation in the ministry of one William Branham of United States of America, whom the Light identified as the forerunner to the Second coming of Christ and as the Messenger to the Seventh (Last) Church age and also as Elijah? (John 1: 4-9, Malachi 4: 5-6, Revelation 10: 7).
Did you know that he had the ministry to turn the people back to the Word of God? (Malachi 4: 5-6).
Did you know that the Mysteries of the Book of Redemption, sealed with 7 Seals were revealed to William Branham to be given to the Bride of Christ to awaken her for the Second Coming of Christ and to introduce the Lion of the Tribe of Juda? (Revelation 5: 1-5, 10: 1-7, Matthew 25: 6-7). John the Baptist introduced the Lamb of God in the First Coming of Christ.
Did you know that William Branham claimed that he had introduced a Great Person as Christ The Word who came to him and met him in the water just like John the Baptist introduced into the World, Jesus Christ who came to him and met him in the Water?
Did you know that there are 7 Thunders which finish the Mystery of God to be revealed personally by the Mighty Angel, Christ, who comes down with the Open Book and with a loud voice as a Lion's Roar, for the Redemption of the Bride of Christ to take her in the Rapture? (Revelation 10: 1-7).
Did you know that when man first landed on the moon in July 20, 1969, when all the people of the world were united as one watching this incident (Even President Nixon had said that there never was a day like that when all the people of the world were one) that a New Message that God had descended to the earth on moonlanding day was revealed and manifested with supernatural vindications through a man called R. Paulaseer Lawrie of India, from whose eyes flames of fire appeared and face shone just like the Mount of Transfiguration incident, in U.S.A? He said that God had descended on the first moonlanding day just like God descended when all the people of the earth were of one mind, trying to build the Tower of Babel (Genesis 11: 1-9, Exodus 3: 9-10, Acts of Apostles 7: 32-34, Genesis 18: 20-21, Matthew 17: 1-3).
Did you know that the Spirit of God had led Paulaseer Lawrie to meet William Branham for Baptism just as Jesus went forth to be baptized of John? Paulaseer Lawrie had a Great and Mighty Miracle Ministry and conducted the greatest revival ever in India . (Matthew 3: 13-15, Mark 1: 9, John 1: 29-34).
Did you know that Great Revelations concerning The Preparation of the Bride of Christ, The Plan of Redemption, The Son of David, The Seven Unwritten Thunders and many other things which were hitherto unknown were revealed by Paulaseer Lawrie for the preparation of the Bride of Christ? (Revelation 19: 7-9, Romans 8: 19-24, II Corinthians 5: 1-10, I Corinthians 15: 35-55, II Samuel 7: 12-19, I Chronicles 17: 11-17, Psalm 89: 3-4, 19-20, 26-37, Revelation 5:5, 10: 1-7,19: 11-16, 22: 8-9,16-17,20).
Did you know that this ministry will end up with the resurrection of the dead saints and the Rapture of the Bride of Christ? It is Christ who brings the dead saints back to the earth for resurrection and the person whose ministry brings the dead saints back is the Anointed Christ for the Second Coming. But then it will be too late (I Thessalonians 4: 14, 15-17, I Corinthinans 15: 51-53). When Jesus had finished his earthly ministry and died on the cross, he went down to the Hades (Hell) and brought the saints to the earth and opened the Paradise for them (Matthew 27: 50-54, Luke 16: 23). The thief on the cross was the first person to go directly to Paradise without going to Hades or Hell (Luke 23: 39-43). Thereafter, all those who died in Christ all these 2000 years went directly to Paradise, where they are resting. It is a Type for the Rapture in which the living saints are glorified directly without death. In the Second coming, after the earthly ministry, Christ brings the dead saints back to the earth with Him from Paradise. This is what we call as resurrection and the person whose ministry brings the dead saints back is the Anointed Christ for the Second Coming (John 5: 24-27, John 11: 25-26).
Did you know that the Lord God is going to turn back to the Jews after he is finished with the Gentiles? (Romans 11:25-27,Revelation 11: 1-3,Ezekiel 37: 1-14, Daniel 9: 24-27, Revelation 7: 1-8, 14: 1-5). The Christians reject Him now as the Jews did at the time of Jesus. All the Churches have been uniting under the ecumenical move forming a conglomeration of Churches which stands against the True Christ and therefore is Anti-Christ just like the Jewish Church in the days of Jesus.
Did you know that the City of Jerusalem will be divided again and a portion allowed to be trodden under foot by the Gentiles for 42 months (three and a half years) in a negotiated settlement?( Revelation 11: 1-3). During that time two witnesses of the Mighty Angel (Christ) of Revelation 10: 1 will prophecy to the Jews with the Spirits of Elijah and Moses respectively, taking the Gentile (Christian) message of the Second Coming of Christ to the Jews just as Apostle Paul brought the Jewish message to the Gentiles in the First Coming of Christ. (Revelation 10:1-7, 11: 1-3, Daniel 12: 5-13, Galatians 2: 7-10). This, the Jews will receive, even though they rejected Jesus Christ in the First Coming ( Zachariah 12: 9-14,Revelation 1: 7).
Did you know that there would be a great Tribulation before Christ returns with His Bride to establish the Millenial Kingdom of Christ the Son of David and that God will shake the heaven and earth to prepare the earth for the Millenium? This would cause great destruction and natural calamities (Matthew 24: 29-30,Luke 21: 25-36, Hebrews 12: 26-29, Revelation 8: 7-13, 9: 1-21, 11: 3-19, 18: 1-24, II Peter 3: 10-12, Malachi 4: 1-6). The Tsunami (Tidal Wave) of December 2004 which wrought havoc in the eastern part of the globe in countries like Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, Thailand, Maldives etc. is only a token or foretaste of what is to follow in the future. It was ghastly to see the horrors of deadbodies strewn all over by the Tsunami waves without anyone to claim and bury the dead ones as whole villages had been wiped out and also of the mass burials. (Ezekiel 38: 19-23, 39: 7-15).
Did you know that the Saints would rise up at the First Resurrection and reign with Christ a Thousand Years? (Revelation 20: 4-6, I Thessalonians 4: 15-17, Philippians 3: 7-12).
Did you know that the Millenial Rule of Christ will be an age of No-War, age of Religious Tolerance, age of Truth and Justice and an age of Harmony with God and Nature? (Micah 4: 1-7, Isaiah 11: 1-10, Psalm 85: 9-13).
Dearly Beloved, I do hope you understand what I am trying to say. If you do know the things mentioned above, you are really a privileged person. This world and the things thereof are not Eternal. Let us follow God fully and look to the unseen. The Bible says, "The sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us (Romans 8:18). "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal: but the things which are not seen are eternal." (II Corinthians 4: 17-18).
The time of our Redemption is much closer than we think and the Scriptural signs are there for the Spiritual People to see. Let us therefore seek after the things that concern our redemption. It is just there for our taking and let us not ignore it and miss a great privilege. Did not Jesus say, Come leave this world and follow me? With the help of God, let us overcome the world and get closer to God like the above Biblical Characters and be partakers of the rewards for the overcomers.
|A Spiritual Wish|
According to the prayers of Apostle Paul, I convey my Wishes for you. May the Lord give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him; the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know the hope of His calling and the riches of the Glory of His Inheritance in the saints and the exceeding greatness of His power toward the believers etc.(Ephesians1:16-21). Also, may the Lord grant you according to the riches of His Glory to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in your inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you being rooted and grounded in Love may be able to understand the perfect Love of Christ; that you may be filled with all the fulness of God (Ephesians 3: 16-19).
I also desire that you may be filled with the Physical Blessings which I need not even mention because Jesus said, "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things (Physical Blessings) shall be added unto you." (Matthew 6: 33). May the Lord Bless you and May His presence and His righteousness be with you always in whatever you do for the Lord and Mankind. If you have found this message to be a blessing, kindly pass it on to your friends and loved ones.
|Yours in Christ's Eternal Love|

|God Bless You !|
