We see the present nominal Christian Church all over the world, who is pretenders of Secularism, humanism and so called liberal in living, in religion and in sex. It has destroyed the precious value of true Christianity and its peaceful and loveable principals which the Lord our God has given us so that for the man who obeys them will live by them. The Lord said to the Israel, "And I gave them my statutes, and shewed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them". (Ezekiel 20:11) Therefore, it is stated thus in the Holy Bible, "And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath life and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life" (1-John 5:11-12) But one can say that being in flesh and with sinful nature how can one be a perfect? Therefore, it is written in the word of God, "Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God a sweet-smelling savour. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; neither filthiness, not foolish talking, not jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whore-monger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and of God". (Ephesians 5:1-5)
To days we see, most of the
missionaries, evangelists and NGO's (working on Computers only) have in one hand the Holy Bible and in other one beggar's bowl to beg for money from every where, by right or wrong means.
What is Christianity?
Is Christianity merely a religion of having some particular customs or rites? Is the Holy Bible only teaches us about some special customs or ways to please the Lord Almighty God? Who are actual and true Christians? Are the children of natural descent, human decisions or with a husband's will can be a true Christians? If it is not so then what is the meaning of true Christian or Christianity? When we read the Holy Bible we become to know that in the very beginning earlier believers were not called Christians. They were called believers, brethren or disciples. (Acts 4:32; 6:1) It is written in the Holy Bible, "The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch. (Acts 11:26) They formed so themselves in their Lord's likeness that they were called Christians due to their practical good deeds. "Christian" is not a cultural category, but rather refers to someone with a dynamic, life-changing connection to Christ.
According to the Holy Bible's teachings, the Lord Almighty God is having a great and a magnificent plan of forgiveness of sins, salvation and eternal life and reconciliation with God for a sinful man who was banished from the Garden of Eden due to his disobedience. In the word of God it is stated, "And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And Lord God commanded the man, saying, of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die". (Genesis 2:15-17)
The Holy Scriptures teaches us that the Lord God made mankind upright. The Lord God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, ad every creeping thing that creepeth up on the earth. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them. (Genesis 1:26-27) It does not mean that God has any bodily form like mankind or other creatures. God is Spirit. Who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To Him be honor and might forever. Amen! (John 4:24; 1-Timothy 6:16) (Here God's image and likeness means is His heavenly and eternal qualities like as God's holiness, righteousness, love, faithfulness, glory and eternity. So we see how man was created in His image after His likeness. But man could not obey the Lord's commandment and thus he was deprived of Lord's glory and eternity and was driven away from God's presence from the Garden of Eden. It is written thus in the Holy Bible, "Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the Garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of Garden of Eden Cherubim's and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life". (Genesis 3:23-24) Now the purpose of the Lord Jesus Christ's coming in the world was to destroy the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility between the God and mankind due to man's sin. It is written thus, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord". (Roman 6:23)
So Christianity means to reconciliation amongst God and sinful man through the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour. It is stated in the Holy Bible, "He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit". (Ephesians 2:17-18) Now we know that Christianity is not only a religion of having some particular customs or rites but actually Christianity is to reconcile again with God through the Lord Jesus Christ. It means to repent and come back to his creator through Jesus Christ.
A true Christianity:
True Christianity then, the Christianity of Christ—is a WAY of life! It involves the Living Jesus Christ living His life within us by the power of the Holy Spirit. Then we can truly worship God in the way He tells us to. We will be given spiritual LOVE to have the genuine out-flowing concern, the patience, the kindness and the mercy we need toward our fellow human beings. Now real Christians are called not just to be "nice" people— NOT just to "roll around heaven" all day with nothing to do. Rather we are called to join with Christ in RULING this world and bringing genuine peace and JOY to the earth when Christ's Kingdom becomes a glorious reality at His Second Coming. That is the very purpose for those called now to be true Christians.
So a true Christian is a born again Christian as it is stated in the word of God. Jesus answered and said unto him, "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God". (John 3:3) A true Christian who is born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will but born of God and now who is living with new nature, to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" (2-Corinthians 5:17)
Don't be deceived, "God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life". (Galatians 6:7-8) Most of today's churches are storytelling, fun-filled, prosperity-seeking institutions that hear of God's love, but despise and get angry when biblical correction comes forth. It is a church age that claims that they know God, but in both fruits and deeds, they deny Him. It is the church that will be left behind when the Rapture comes. As very few were saved in the days of Noah, in like manner, very few are truly saved today. When the Rapture comes, only a few will be taken. The lukewarm, Laodicean church is the one that will be spit out. Many Churches and denominations are distorting the Word of the living God. They are introducing destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them with His precious blood, and bringing swift destruction on themselves. And many nominal Christians are following their shameful ways and bringing the way of truth into disrepute. These false teachers and so called prophets, in their greed, are exploiting the ignorant and unstable people with stories they have made up. For they mouth empty, boastful words and, by appealing to the lustful desires of sinful human nature, they entice people who are just escaping from those who live in error. They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity- for a man is salve to whatever has mastered him. (2-Peter 2:1, 18-19) Our Saviour the Lord Jesus warned, "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? Like wise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them". (Matthew 7:15-20)
So it is our great desire to strengthen our true Christian believers so that they may become strong in faith, in health, in economic and get along well in every way in their personal and family life and may become exemplary Christians to others so that nominal Christians and non-Christians also may turn from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. For this purpose our youth ministers are working in the congregation voluntarily to bring illiterate persons either male or female to educate them for their spiritual and worldly benefit. Unluckily here in Pakistan a numerous Christians are illiterate due to poverty. And they can not be a good and healthy in faith Christians without education. We are looking to our Lord's mighty hand to provide us resources and financial help so that we may run and establish academic schools properly. We believe that our God the Father and our Saviour the Lord Jesus Christ will definitely provide us according to our necessities because He is provider and He is always watching to see that His word is fulfilled. Amen!
BERACHAH CHURCH was founded and incorporated by Rev. Ghulam Masih Tebassum in July, 1980 and since then Brother Ghulam Masih Tebassum and his fellow-workers have been preaching the Word of truth (the Word of God) here in Pakistan independently and voluntarily. We preach the Word of God as it is written in the Holy Bible by His holy prophets and epistles who were carried along by the Holy Spirit. We do not distort the word of God and nor we go beyond what is written; but on the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, like men sent from God. Unlike so many, we do not peddle the Word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, like men sent from God. It is written in the word of God, "The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron". (2-Corinthians 2:17) But it is not unexpected or strange, our lord Jesus Christ and His apostles have already foretold in the word of God. They said, "In the last times there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires. These are the men who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit". (Jude 1:17-19) Says the Lord, "For I testify unto every man that hearth the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the Holy City, and from the things which are written in this book". (Revelation 22:18-19)
We are not desirous absolutely to create or establish any other mission or religious group in the same conception.
We are only the voice of the Lord who said, "Make straight the way for the Lord who is coming soon with the clouds to receive His Church. We see how the nominal Christians with their sinful nature has corrupted their ways and because of their evil deeds and wrong teachings our heavenly Father's name and our Saviour the Lord Jesus' name is blasphemed among the Gentiles. According to the Word of God, "For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn form the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, "The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire". (2. Peter 2:18-22)
Through the growing ministry of
God is using us to construct hearts eternally renewed by His love, buildings that will never fall, crumble or pass away. Let us come to work together for the glory of our Lord Who is coming very soon with clouds.
