Lawrie Ministries began as the ministry of an individual called Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie and it developed into a worldwide ministry. He had a direct call to the fulltime ministry from the Lord Jesus Christ in 1953 who was a part time minister until then. There was only his family of wife Ebenezer Lawrie and their three children with him when he left his worldly job to serve God full time.
He started his ministry from his native village called Nazareth in South India. As the ministry grew bigger, more Children of God were involved and it was known as The Paulaseer Lawrie Evangelistic Association Ministries. The ministry has been run purely by Faith, Guidance and Dependence upon God alone.
The main aim of the ministry was basically to exalt the Lord Jesus Christ and spread the Truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Preaching the Truth including the End time Revelations and Teaching the Scriptures, Publications of Messages and etc. were being carried out as more and more Truths from the Scriptures came to light.
There was an important turning point in the Ministry when Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie was led of the Holy Spirit to meet Bro. William Branham of U.S.A. and be baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ in 1960. Thereafter the ministry became a massive one with hundreds of thousands attending each gathering.
Great Power of God was manifested in those meetings with Signs, Wonders, Healings and Miracles etc. as foretold by Bro. Branham. Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie conducted the biggest revival ever in the history of India in an unprecedented manner that went on for a few years in which millions received the Lord Jesus Christ in their Lives.
Subsequently Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie started preaching and teaching the Whole Truth of the Word and many thousands and thousands came to the Word of God leaving their denominational religion. The majority left him but the numbers of those who left their denominations to follow the Lord independently increased day by day.
He directed all of them to the message and doctrines of Bro. Branham, sacrificing his own ministry in the process. Thousands and thousands took to the message of Bro. Branham. There were hundreds of independent prayer groups started by Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie throughout India.
Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie had a deep conviction in the process of discipleship by leaving everything and following Christ fully. Jesus Christ emphasized very much on leaving everything and following Him. But John the Baptist did not have the message to call people to leave everything. Bro. Lawrie was teaching the believers of the importance of leaving everything.
When hundreds and hundreds of people with passion for souls came forward with divine calling and unction of the Holy Spirit to leave their all and serve the Lord fully, there was a need to instill Faith into them and train them in the ministry:-
For this purpose a Religious and Social Service Centre called Manujothi Ashram was established in 1961 by Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie as a part of His ministry. An Ashram is a Religious and Social Service Centre - something like a monastery - to train men and women for a dedicated and consecrated spiritual life. A secluded place far away from habitation was chosen for this purpose in 1962.
There was another turning point in the Ministry in 1969 when man first landed on the moon. The Lord Jesus gave Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie the revelation required for the Coming of Christ and came down into Him at Chicago, U.S.A. A few days earlier a Mount of Transfiguration incident was reported. When Bro. Lawrie was preaching on the 23rd Psalm, flames of fire went forth from his eyes and he was transfigured.
Great Revelations concerning the Plan of Redemption, The Preparation of the Bride of Christ, The Son of David, The Seven Unwritten Thunders, New Name and many other things hitherto unknown were revealed by Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie for the preparation of the Bride of Christ with perfect Scriptural Types.
Thousands from all over India and abroad came to Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie to know what it is all about and started following God fully dependent upon Him to please Him. He was always condemning the organized religion on one side and teaching the believers, the messages meant for the Bride of Christ.
Bro. Paulaseer Lawrie was involved in an unusually strange ministry to the Non-Christians in the final stages of his earthly ministry. Bro. William Branham had preached that there would be a ministry to the totally lost in the last days just as Jesus was preaching to the souls in prison (I Peter 3: 18-20). This ministry was thrust upon Bro. Lawrie since the people of other religions were driven by an unseen force to come to him. Now his earthly ministry is over. There are followers of his ministry widespread throughout the world.
