“Let the weak say, ‘I am strong!’ ” (Joel 3:10) – And my strength is Christ Jesus.

Recently on Sunday, 19th August 2012, a totally surprising prophecy about me, a humble servant of God was prophesized by Pastor Mike Guntknecht of USA as he came & stood before me in the midst of large congregation at the Lifeline Ministry Church here (pls. see google link separately and even more astoundingly amazing was the fact that the awesome anointing of Christ Jesus through the Holy Spirit descended upon humble me a few days earlier as I was humbly ordained as “Pastor at large” initiating me - His servant into a passionate service of the altar of my Christ – How great and magnificent thou Art….

In absolute darkness my deliverance was born,
in abstract darkness I was baptized in spirit and truth;
and it is in stark nightmarish darkness I received Him and His Light of Life;
but magnificent is He ever since I am engulfed flash lightning like brilliance of His.

From the pages of my humble life, I have unfurled how the immense compassion of a merciful Jesus had lifted me up from the darkest valleys where I had slipped into its fathomless pit a few years ago when I had lost my complete sight & became totally blind and through my faith in ‘Him who never fails’, gently pulled me all the way up & placed me on a pedestal and presented me the ‘Word of God’ – Thank you Lord Jesus.

“My dear brethren, if there is a ‘Closed Door’ in your life…. Rejoice!” Because when God closes one door He opens another bigger door for us. Many a times when there is a closed door, God opens many doors of opportunities. In fact, when there’s a closed door Jesus said, “knock and the door will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7). More so when there’s a closed door, Jesus Himself comes knocking, “I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and dine with that person, and they with me” (Rev. 3:20). This is the Word of God and it never fails. It never failed in my humble life.

“When a storm is blowing in your life… Rejoice!” Because when there is a storm and if you seek Jesus, He would come walking on the troubled waters saying, “It is I; don’t be afraid” (John 6:20). And more vitally significant is the fact that when Jesus comes on into our life’s boat not only the storm would subside, the turbulence would stop and the boat would not rock anymore but we would also reach our destination immediately and with the peace of Jesus. This is the word of God and it never fails. It never failed in my life.

“When your life breaks apart….Rejoice!” If your career breaks apart, your financial situation breaks apart, your marriage breaks apart, your health breaks apart, etc. the Almighty – the Jehovah Jireh will bless you to swim safe using the broken pieces that broke apart as Apostle Paul and his companions swam ashore safely using the broken pieces of their ship that was broken apart (Acts 27:43-44). “Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, Take and eat; this is my body.” (Matthew 26:26). As we observed, it is from His broken body which is given to us that we receive our salvation. This is the word of God and it never fails. It never failed in my life.

Jesus chose us. “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit —fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.” (John 15:16). “And because Jesus Himself chose us, God has said never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). We are a chosen people. And Christ Jesus is our personal armor & strength. And Jesus never fails. He has never failed in my life. Amen.

God bless you & your family.

In His Service Yours Truly,

Rev. Cruz Dev Prasad
