Dear Friends,

In pursuance of the channel of communication that I have opened with you, I am writing this letter to you. It has a purpose of life.

To begin with….What is life? People define life subjectively. They search life in one or the other thing. But let me tell you what Bible says about life. JESUS, as He was reaching the end of His life and was about to return to GOD the FATHER in Heaven, said this about life:
“And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true GOD, and JESUS CHRIST whom YOU have sent.” (John 17:3) do not really know what they would get if they know GOD. So, they do not care to search for GOD and try to find Him…know Him. One major reason why they do not know that they need GOD is that they do not know their own spirit.

Yes! If you believe that you have spirit, not just body, and somebody asks you to prove that you have spirit, then you will have to fumble for the right answer. Often the answer you give to the questioner will not convince even your own self. That explains the reason why you fail to know what your own spirit needs. You know only about what your body needs. Because the needs of your body are immediate.

When you are hungry, you need food. When you are thirsty, you need drink. When you feel the heat of the day, you need AC. When you feel cold, you need heater. You know all too well what you gain if you satisfy your body. You know what you gain if you get wealth, power and carnal pleasure.

It is time for you to know that you are not satisfied with all that you gave your body. Eat best food. Yet you will be hungry again. Eat what you like most for two, three, or four times in a row, and I bet that you would not like to have it for the fifth time. You want a different taste.
Wear best cloths. The experience remains the same as it was with your choice of food. They grow old sooner than your body that you want to dress with. Then, slowly, slowly, your body too gets worn out in the same way that your cloths do. Body gets weaker and weaker till it reaches the time when the desires which spring from it also grow weak. At last, our desires die before we die.

Our body has its limits. If you are hungry, and are in the habit of doing overeating whenever you eat what you like, then too you cannot eat beyond certain limit. Simple! So, it is a foregone conclusion that no matter what you do for your body, somewhere deep within you, there will remain discontent.

You know that very often you try to remove your dissatisfaction but you do not succeed. Why you are not able to remove that dissatisfaction? Believe me, if you would, that you are not able to remove that dissatisfaction because you do not actually know what is the source – the root – of your discontent. Again, believe me, if you can, that the source of that discontent lies in the fact that your spirit is starving.! You spirit is starving. But you are so focused on your body and the world and its pleasing distractions, that you are unmindful of the needs of your spirit. You do not even know what your spirit needs! Your body will die one day; your spirit will live forever. Yet you do nothing for your spirit! Strange, isn’t it?

You do nothing for your spirit, because you are not able to understand and know what your spirit needs. That is the reason why you are not able to give anything to your spirit. Would you like to know what your spirit needs? He (your spirit) wants to spend eternity in happiness. The happiness he needs exists not in this world but in Heaven. This happiness exists in Heaven only because it is in Heaven that God lives. Heaven is a happy place because of God. And you can never enter Heaven without being related to Him.

You do not visit people whom you do not know. You visit people you know. You visit people because you care for them and they care for you. There is a relationship between them and you. The same principle applies here – in spiritual realm. Your spirit wants to establish that relationship with GOD. In absence of this relationship, he does not get what it should from GOD. Only GOD can give your spirit what he needs. As a result, he just suffers his starvation silently till he starves to death!

Am I contradicting myself here? I said before that spirit lives forever; and, now, I am talking about death of the spirit! Let me explain. The death of the spirit, according to Bible, means living forever in Hell. The spirit that does not go to Heaven, goes to Hell.

You may not know but your spirit does know what is awaiting him in future. The fate of your spirit is sealed on the day that you die and finish your life in this world. It is in your hand to ensure where your spirit will spend his eternity. Your spirit is your real self, not your body; because, as I said earlier, your body will perish the day you die.

Therefore, you have a reason enough to care for your spirit. If you want, he will live forever in perfect joy and peace in Heaven with GOD. If you want, he will live forever in eternal and unimaginable unhappiness and torment in Hell. You have two choices before you to make. Depending on your choice, your spirit will have Heaven or Hell. It is in your power to reject GOD or accept Him. If you reject GOD, you break your ties with Him. In other words, you have opted out of Heaven.

Do you think you can suffer eternity in Hell? Even temporary sufferings and failures you are not able to suffer on earth, then how can you suffer unimaginable torments in Hell for eternity? Dear Friends, I beseech you not to be so hard with your own self. Make the right decision when you are still alive on earth. Dead people cannot make decision. Therefore, make it now when you are still alive.

It is GOD’s will that you choose life, not death. In the Book of Deuteronomy, Chapter 30, Verses 19-20, from the Bible, GOD’s will is recorded thus:“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may love the LORD your GOD, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days…”

GOD of the Bible has clearly revealed through the above statement that He wants you to choose life. However, it is up to you to choose life. Nobody can give you life if you yourself do not want it. Life does not mean living for 100 years. Because after 100 years, death is sure to come. Life does not mean big house, much wealth, best choice of food and clothes, sex, etc. It is a lot more than that. To be more specific, it is accepting JESUS as your personal Savior.
This is what JESUS prayed to GOD the FATHER in this respect as He was approaching the end of His mission on earth:

“FATHER, the hour has come. Glorify Your SON, that Your SON also may glorify You, as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.”

My Dear Friends, JESUS is having authority over all flesh – whole mankind. He would not like anyone to perish. He loves you. He wants you to stay forever with Him in Heaven. Will you help yourself by accepting GOD’s will for your life? Please do.

In JESUS’ Mighty Name,

Your Friend from India

Dear Friends,

Today I am writing to you a brief letter. The whole burden of this letter is exactly this: That person is a fool who expects anything less than life from GOD. my life – right from my childhood, I have heard people praying to GOD for nice bungalows, cars, bikes, beautiful girl, handsome boy, lots of money and so on. Isn’t this strange?! All my life I have seen people worshiping GOD not for the sake of GOD! They think that GOD helps them get things in their life – things that are meant for body – things that wear out by use, grow old, and ultimately end one day.

Just as I have seen people who worship GOD for things which perish by use, I have seen gods who give only the things which are meant for body, or not even for body but for luxury. When people need money, they pray to a goddess who gives them money. When they want their business venture to succeed, they pray to a god who is meant for that purpose. When they want to harm their enemies, they pray to a god who is meant for that purpose. They have billions of gods for things which are not integral to life. Surprisingly, they do not have even one god who will heal them from sickness or give them abundant life or help them lead a holy life or, above all, give them salvation of their spirit! of the spirit…Just consider how important it is to achieve salvation of the spirit! We may live for up to 70 years. If we are physically strong, we may live up to 80 years. Say, a hundred years. But we all know that a day will come when our life in this world will end. The moment we die, the whole world ends for us. The choices food, most exquisite crockery, most sumptuous furniture, great mansion, cars, private aircrafts or yachts, great bank balance…What is the meaning of all this when life itself is gone?

But our spirit will live forever. The Holy Bible says that the spirit will live forever in hell or in heaven. Living forever in hell is defined as ‘second death’. Death of the body is ‘first death’. Instead of calling it ‘first death’, Bible calls it falling asleep. All who die are asleep. There is a day appointed when all dead will come back to life. The purpose for their coming to life is to stand before GOD for the Final Judgment, when GOD will judge us for all the good and the bad that we have done, HE will assign us the place either in heaven or in hell. It is HIS ardent desire that we stay in heaven, the place where we shall see GOD face-to-face and live in HIS presence forever!
There are some intelligent people who doubt the existence of GOD and question those who believe in HIM, “Where is your GOD?” To such as these, we do not need to answer. Not that we do not have answer to this question; but the thing is that even if we answer their question, they are not going to accept it one way or the other. Why waste time on them? It is better that we prepare ourselves for the best.

And how this life with GOD will be like? My Dear Friends, Bible gives wonderful description of it in the Book of Revelation. Instead of describing it in my words, I would rather quote the whole chapter in which JESUS Himself assures the reader about its surety and veracity. Before I quote it, please note that where you read about the LAMB, know that the LAMB refers to JESUS. 


Revelation, Chapter 21

Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from GOD, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! GOD’s dwelling place is now among the people, and HE will dwell with them. They will be His people, and GOD Himself will be with them and be their GOD. ‘HE will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.

HE who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then HE said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

HE said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their GOD and they will be my children. But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars – they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the LAMB.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from GOD. It shone with the glory of GOD, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. It had a great, high wall with twelve gates, and with twelve angels at the gates. On the gates were written the names of the twelve tribes of Israel. There were three gates on the east, three on the north, three on the south and three on the west. The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the LAMB.

The angel who talked with me had a measuring rod of gold to measure the city, its gates and its walls. The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12000 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long. The angel measured the wall using human measurement, and it was 144 cubits thick. The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone. The first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, the fifth onyx, the sixth ruby, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth turquoise, the eleventh jacinth, and the twelfth amethyst. The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass.

I did not see a temple in the city, because the Lord GOD Almighty and the LAMB are its temple. The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of GOD gives it light, and the LAMB is its lamp. The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there. The glory and honor of the nations will be brought into it. Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the LAMB’s book of life.

Revelation, Chapter 22

Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of GOD and of the LAMB down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse. The throne of GOD and of the LAMB will be in the city, and HIS servants will serve Him. They will see HIS face, and HIS name will be on their foreheads. There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord GOD will give them light. And they will reign forever and ever. Dear Friends, this is the life that is promised in JESUS – for those who accept HIM as their LORD and SAVIOR. This is infinitely more desirable than having the whole world. That, exactly is the reason why JESUS said to the people who had gathered to hear HIS sermon: “For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”

JESUS is here to give you not just life but eternal life; not just happiness but eternal happiness. The life that HE offers is free from all the problems that are associated with the present life. It will be a perfect life. Please do yourself favor and think about your spirit. What is done for the spirit, endures. What is done for the body, perishes. That is the reason why JESUS said:

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.” you have to do in order to lay up treasures in heaven is to accept JESUS as your personal SAVIOR, the LORD of your life. That’s all! HE provides you with both your physical and spiritual needs. What is important is that you prioritize things that have to do with your spirit.

Finally, if there is anyone who would like to know why it is necessary to accept JESUS in order to go to heaven, HIS dwelling, in order to save your soul from landing into hell, please write to me. I would like to explain it to you. May GOD bless you. 

You may also get to know a lot about JESUS from The Way, The Truth, The Life and Knowing JESUS. You find these books here:

WHAT CAN YOU DO NOW? times it so happens that some of us try very hard to get success in life. They are honest, hard-working and capable. Despite having everything that is needed to get success, they don't get success. On the other hand, we come across people who are not worthy to get success in life and yet they turn out to be extremely successful, and their success comes in such unexpected and unimaginable ways that we get surprised about it. Why this happens? To deserving people who have failed in life, I have something to say here. 

First of all, you need to know that:

Success is awaiting you somewhere
You deserve success
Your definitions of success and failure are not wrong. This is extremely important
What you want to achieve is worth achieving
There is no short-cut to success
There is no point in becoming a defeatist
It will harm you more than help you if you envy others for their success
It is not necessary that success comes by your efforts only
There is GOD of Israel who is capable of giving you success if HE is pleased with your ways

The most important of all is that you believe in JESUS. Here I would like to direct your attention to the success received by the disciples of JESUS, namely, Peter, Thomas, Nathanael, the sons of Zebedee and two others.

These were experienced fishermen. At night they went out into the Sea of Galilee to catch fish. They strove for the whole night and got nothing. But when it was early morning, JESUS appeared to His disciples for the third time after rising from death, and asked them to cast their nets on the right side of the boat. note that HIS appearance was different from the one that they identified HIM by. Therefore, they could not find out that it was JESUS who was talking to them. Important thing is that they didn't argue. They just obeyed HIM and did what HE asked them to. The result is that they caught so many fishes that their net could not contain them. It was then that one of HIS disciples realized that HE was JESUS. And when they reached ashore, lo, the food was already there for them! It was prepared for them by their LORD!

This miracle happened at the time when the disciples were extremely depressed because of the death of JESUS. They had set their stores on HIM! They had left everything, left all, and followed HIM like HIS shadow. And now HE wasn’t there!

It was like the end of the world for them. There was such a void in their life that nothing else could fill it. They were trying in vain to return to their old way of life – returning to fishing and all that. It was when JESUS came to life again and when HE met them, they learned that their hope was not a dupe. JESUS now renewed their hope and reminded them of their real mission in life, that is, the mission to save the souls of men for HIM instead of catching fish. They were not to worry about food and all that; because their GOD was there to look after these needs. What was important for them was to fulfill the mission of preaching the Good News of JESUS to the world. we all know, the twelve disciples went out into the world and preached the message of JESUS to the world with the result that they were able to conquer the whole world for their LORD. The great empires of the world have fallen but the empire they built for JESUS is standing still in spite of the persecution and opposition it suffered right from the beginning.

All the twelve disciples of JESUS were killed in different parts of the world in the same way that their LORD was. But the empire they have built is right before us. Death does not take away a bit from their success; because their success lies in the right place - in the heavenly kingdom.

Let me quote two verses from Proverbs 16 to make my point:

"To humans belong the plans of the heart, but from the LORD comes the proper answer of the tongue."

In other words, man proposes, GOD disposes. And the second verse is, "Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and HE will establish your plans."
Finally, I would like to end this post with what JESUS Himself said in Matthew 12:30:

“He who is not with ME is against ME, and he who does not gather with ME scatters abroad.”

A Letter to My Japanese Friends


My Dear Friends in Japan,

Greetings in the name of Jesus!

Let me introduce myself first. I am Bertrand…your friend from India. wish this letter finds you in the best of health. I am writing to you to say something that so many of you will find to be extremely important. Since quite some time I have been wanting to talk to you. I think what I have to tell you is very important - both for you and me. Also, I consider myself bound by responsibility towards you to say what I am going to say to you NOW. It is my ardent desire that you spend some of your invaluable time on seriously pondering over it.

It’s about JESUS!

I do not have slightest doubt about it that you know this name. But, do you know that HE also knows you? Yes, not only HE knows you but HE knows you personally! Because HE loves you and cares for you! Because HE knows that you need HIM!

Please do not think I am projecting my views on you! That, surely, is not my intention. But, if you believe in GOD, it is your own faith that testifies to the fact that you need JESUS. Let me explain.

To begin with, you need GOD. The problem is how to reach out to Him. Nobody has ever seen HIM! Not even the person who believes that GOD does exist! Having said this, I must add that it surely does not mean that you cannot see Him. You can! That’s the whole point of this letter!

Because you need GOD, you need JESUS! Because JESUS is GOD! JESUS is GOD because HE is the Son of GOD. Just as the son of man cannot be anything else but man, the Son of GOD cannot be anything else but GOD. This brings us to the next question: How can one believe that JESUS is the Son of GOD?

The answer to the question posed above is given in the Book of Romans, Chapter 1, where it is written that GOD proved JESUS to be HIS Son by raising HIM from death.

This brings us to the question: “How GOD can ever take birth and die?!” The answer to this question starts from the simple fact that JESUS lived even before He took birth in this world in order to take upon HIM a flesh-and-blood existence. The Gospel of St. John, Chapter 1 says:“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

Even when there was nothing, there was GOD. Neither GOD’s existence started nor it ends at any point of time. Simply because HE is GOD.

The WORD who was with GOD is JESUS. HE was actively involved in creating the universe and everything that is in it. The verse quoted above also says that in JESUS is life. To be more specific, JESUS is life. In John 14:6, JESUS said:
“I am the way, the truth, and the life.”

So, what happened when JESUS died and was buried? The answer lies in the emboldened words in the passage quoted above from John, Chapter 1. Darkness has not overcome the light. So, what happened after Jesus died on the cross for you and for me, and was buried in the grave for three days is extremely interesting.

He went into the realm of death where all those who died before HIM were imprisoned in death. There HE preached ‘freedom’ in HIM to them – to those who would accept it! This was HIS work for three days that HE spent in the grave.

On the third day, JESUS rose to life and came out of the grave. HE spent 40 days in the world with HIS disciples before HE went up into heaven in full view of HIS disciples. When they were watching JESUS go into heaven, two angels of God appeared to them and spoke with them in this manner:

“Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
The Christians world over are waiting for HIS Second Coming. It is near – very. But this time round HE is not coming into the world to get hanged on the cross over again. No! HE is returning to the world to judge the peoples of the world. Yes, HE is coming as the JUDGE. The question is: “Why HE is coming as the JUDGE to judge the world?” The answer is simple. HE wants to establish justice and the rule of justice in this world. For establishing justice, the JUDGE is required. Similarly, for establishing the rule of justice, the KING is required. Therefore, HE will appear in the role of the JUDGE and the KING. That will be the time that the world will experience HIS glory to the full.

Having said this, I must inform you about a very interesting phenomenon that the world will witness. Seven years prior to JESUS actually landing on the earth to establish HIS millennial kingdom, HE will appear in the sky – not literally descend on the earth. This appearance of HIS is meant for gathering up HIS people and take them out of the world into heaven so that they may stay with HIM forever. This action is intended to save them from the perilous time that is going to come upon this world – time such as the world history has never witnessed before. HIS people are collectively called the Church.

Now, as soon as the Church is taken up from the earth into heaven, this earth will be subjected to Satan for seven years. The reason behind allowing Satan to rule the earth is to open its eyes to see the choice of its own making and also the consequences thereof. GOD has given enough time to the world to accept HIM through JESUS. But the world has chosen to accept other gods who would help it satisfy its lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life. It rejected JESUS because HE asked the world to do this:

“If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”

The world seeks ‘Self’; it does not seek to deny this Self. Self-denial means keeping oneself from committing sins. ‘Taking up his cross’ in the above quoted verse means exactly the same – keeping oneself from committing sins. it is, the world wants to commit sins; because the pleasure of the flesh lies in committing sins. Sin leads to destruction – destruction of mind, body and spirit. JESUS asked a valid question to the world: “For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?”

JESUS cares for your soul – if you allow HIM to take care of your soul. Even if you gain the whole world, it is not going to mean anything if you lose your soul. This world is going to end one day but the spirit of a man does not. Either the spirit of a man lives forever in hell or in heaven. Living forever in hell means losing one’s soul. It is terrible to lose one’s soul – terrible beyond description. JESUS wants that people of the world live forever with HIM in heaven and enjoy life to the full there. That is real life.

But the crux of the matter is that sinners cannot enter heaven with their sinfulness. Only the righteous can enter heaven. And nobody can do anything to make himself righteous. That is the reason why JESUS sacrificed HIMSELF on the cross to atone for our sins. For our sake HE died and was buried and rose from death on the third day. In other words, HE won battle against death. According to Bible, the wages of sin is death. In other words, death is there because of our sins. JESUS’s victory over death means that HE won the battle against sin first before going on to defeat the consequences of sin.

All who accept HIM (JESUS) are on HIS side and, therefore, they too are on the side that has won victory over sin and death. In JESUS the whole mankind has the hope of resurrection – hope of righteousness. JESUS not only took away our sins, HE also gave us HIS righteousness. All we need to do is to accept JESUS. It is through HIS acceptance that we become righteous. Accepting JESUS means accepting righteousness. It opens way for us – way to heaven – to eternal life – to eternal joy.

The question is: Will you accept JESUS as your personal SAVIOR? And choose to follow HIM? It is not easy to follow HIM. But the end-result is infinitely greater than the price you pay for it. Bible says,“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.”

I am writing you to plead with you to choose the narrow gate and the difficult way. Choose JESUS. In HIM is life and that life is the light of the mankind.

Thanks for taking the pains to read my letter to you. GOD bless you.
