Perfect LOVE casts out all fear - 3/20/2015
Open Heaven in front of my enemy Never turning back – We gathered few hours before baptism. I hope that they will understand the true meaning of salvation and baptism. Pulled out my notebook and started drawing 316 on my pad, I figured that it would be better if they get to see why we need God, and why baptism is important to us (I always knew baptism is important but I didn’t know it was that powerful – later I realized it from this baptism.)
Baptism – As we arrived the temple, I saw Pinki’s mother was not feeling well, the demon was manifesting outside of the temple. She was vomiting and shaking. She couldn’t walk any more. Then I asked Andy to pull out the guitar and started worshiping outside of the temple. After a short while, we managed to hold her and help her walk to the shore. It took a while for her to get into the boat, apparently the spirit didn’t want to her to get baptized. As we all got into the boat, Pinki’s mother started rocking the boat and vomiting, twitching and shaking; we simply kept on worshipping. Finally we made it to the other side of the river, Pinki’s mother (the demon) didn't’ want to get out of the boat but of course she finally did - hallelujah, all powers will bow down to Jesus.
Sumit volunteered to get baptized first. It was awesome to see a young man giving his life to God. Pinki’s father second, and it was such a powerful act of God. Then it came to Pinki’s mother. She walked into the river ready to get baptized. We prayed over her and proclaimed the wonderful salvation of Jesus over her, then baptized her in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I honestly have never seen such a transformation in an individual during a baptism. She wasn’t shaking, vomiting, twitching or manifesting at all after baptism; instead she was laughing with joy and happiness while she fellowshipped with us at the shore. This is such a glorious act of God.
Then a young girl all the sudden wanted to get baptized (she didn’t sign up for it), because she witnessed the whole transformation of Pinki’s mother and came to realize that Jesus is real and He is all loving and gracious. Without any doubt, we baptized her with gladness. Hallelujah! It’s a good day!
Tonight we celebrated God’s amazing salvation by eating more goat meat!
