Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Greetings in the matchless Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!!

It is been a burden for long time in my heart which I wanted to share with you. With all prayerful thoughts, I am coming to you. We worship a Resurrected Living God. He is a Sovereign God beyond our imagination and description. He is a Holy God, Great God, Loving God, our Healer, Provider, and Protector. And we are the chosen generation to be His adopted children, His sheep, and we are handpicked, selected, people to worship Him eternally. (Ephe 1:4)

Holy Spirit put a burden in my heart to unite our Christian community in all the places. It is good to have separate churches to worship in our own languages with our own people from the same place. We are separated due to doctrinal differences too. Only Holy Spirit can clarify and reveal the right doctrine to us. All the answers are available in the Holy Bible. But we have to be united as one Christian family, one Church as the Body of Christ. The Body may have several functions, all the command comes from the Head, Jesus Christ. The Body parts have to be united to execute His will. It cannot operate on its own. Paul says “Now I beg you, brothers, through the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfected together in the same mind and in the same judgment”. (I Cor 1:10). He also says “Walk worthily of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and humility, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love; being eager to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace" (Eph. 4:1-3).

Friends in other religions have several demi-god & goddess. But they are all united, everyone goes to any temple, in US, each city has at least one temple, and they have several demi-gods, goddess in one place. All people from different places, culture, people speaking different languages, all are going to the temple together.

But we Christians, redeemed by the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, washed by His Blood, baptized claiming that all the old things are passed away, trying to live a Holy life, separated from the world and its lust, who supposed to reflect Jesus and His characters, we are divided by language, caste, creed, location etc., We are God’s unique design to obey and follow His commandments. We have a better goal which is to reach the heaven and hope to live eternally with our God the Father.

I plead all of our Indian Christian people in each city, each state, unite, come together and worship our Holy God at least once a year. Let us join hands and show the love of our God to the unbelievers. Jesus gave us the great commission that preach the gospel, good news of salvation and make them disciples. If we are divided, the people in the world cannot accept us the disciples of Jesus Christ.

We don’t have much time left in front of us. The secret coming of Jesus Christ is very near. Let us prepare ourselves to meet Him in the mid-air and also prepare the people around us to be part of the rapture, the glorious day!!! Amen.

With love and concern for the perishing souls
