 What is the 10/40 Window

The 10/40 Window is the rectangular area of North Africa, the Middle East and Asia approximately between 10 degrees north and 40 degrees north latitude. The 10/40 Window is often called “The Resistant Belt”…….. Readmore



The Lord called us the ‘Light of the world’, He called us the ‘Salt of the earth’.  Missions was His commission. Missions at home, community, larger family or the Missions field.  We all have some role to play. We have to pray in the closet or be a  player in the mission fields.  Think about it. Pray about it.

You are the Light of the world


A few months back I heard this story…..

ABOUT a preacher who went to Africa.  As he moved around, the sun was extremely hot and he was thirsty.  He went towards a small shop, and  wondered if he would get good water to drink.  But on coming up to the shop the keeper immediately asked “ Sir, do you want a coke, and it is chilled.”  This surprised him.  He thought the Coca cola which is about a 125 years old has reached the remote places of Africa.  But the Gospel message of Jesus Christ our Saviour, Healer and deliverer, which was commissioned 2000 years ago has yet to reach millions on the globe. What could the reasons be ?

The Lord Jesus said in Mat 5:14  You are the light of the world.

In other words each one of us who believe in Christ has got the power or the dunamis or the anointing to impact not only family and friends but to reach the world with the light of the gospel within us.  We have to honestly examine our place in our family, Church, and community. How much have we earnestly contributed to reach out this light ? Are all our programmes always looking inwards or are they looking outwards. Has the heart of missions from the Church failed ? Has the Church forgot to equip and to send out.

The heartbeat of the Lord has not changed. It is still the same as the Bible says in Isa 6:8

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?”

Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

For some of us the missions fields can be our families, friends, relatives and office friends, our neighbourhood to start with.  For the one who is seeking and available the Lord will show innovative ways to reach the unreached.  For some the call may be to Go into the world and preach the gospel to every creature.  But as we see it all began after the coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Penteost and they were witnesses first in Jerusalem, then Judea, Samaria and then to the uttermost parts of the earth.

If there are many drops that make an ocean and if what the Lord Jesus said in Matt 5:14 is true, then each one of us has a long way in shining our lights to the world.  He has put unimaginable power in us through the Holy Spirit to reach and impact a dying world that we are living in.  We are called not to fear them who destroy the body but to Fear HIM.  We are called to think as He thinks, for as a man thinketh in his heart so is he.  So today let us agree with what the Lord says.

God needs us and wants to depend upon us Today.  Let us align our thinking to fulfill our responsibilities first in family, then others individuals, Church, Community, City, nation and then enter into the World before the trumpet sounds.

Coming up: The Joshua project, the 10 40 window and the unreached areas in the world.

In Christ Alone

There is no other name but JESUS

There is no other King but JESUS

There is no other LORD but JESUS


The Bible says in Phil 2:10,11

that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,

a) of those in heaven,

b) and of those on earth,

c) and of those under the earth,
 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 

Here Apostle Paul writes about the three places that are before the eyes of the Lord.

 JESUS is the name that brings healing , hope and  deliverance. The name that is above every other name as mentioned in the Bible.  The name that can resurrect you and give you a brand new start in life.  Demons are not cast out in the name of Mahatma Gandhi or Abraham Lincoln,  but in the name of Jesus. Many of us, probably have not witnessed a demon being cast out from a person.

JESUS is the name that resounds healing and hope not only on the earth , but is the Lamb of God on the throne in Heaven and the name at which demons tremble, the One who has the keys of death and hell.  The Holy Spirit will only magnify and glorify the name of Jesus.

Even as the work of the preaching of the gospel continues through different means through crusades, Television, Internet ministry, Websites and so on. The name of the Lord is spreading to the uttermost part of the earth.  The true seekers of God embrace this Name for their search for truth ends with this Name. The Name  that is above every other name.  JESUS.

The offering of Christ on the cruel cross completed the salvation of all those who believe in His shed blood, for forgiveness and redemption. At the cross will every soul find solace and comfort and eternal hope and  answers to all questions.

At the name of JESUS Every knee will bow.  Every Creation will bow to the only Creator. Creation cannot be God. Creation must bow and praise the Creator. Think  about this. This will happen and the Name of JESUS will be exalted Above All.

As we lift up the Name  of JESUS , He will draw all men unto Him.


A month back for the marriage preparations of my nephew we sought The Lord and earnestly prayed for the Lords presence,  for all things to go smoothly, for His blessings on the couple, the families and all who participated.  The Lord answered all our prayers and other servants of God, by sending unprecedented rain and then a calm.  By His grace and mercies everything went on smoothly.  As the functions came to an end one of the guests told me – everything went smoothly, it was as if The Lord was there.  

In your families, gatherings and fellowships exalt and lift  His name. Let your conversations revolve around Him. Then you will find Him in your midst and also as His name is lifted He will draw all men unto Him.



What is the Time Like ?




Tick tock


Yesterday afternoon I was at the bus stop.  It was an unusually hot day and I was waiting to get into the air-con bus.  In a split second there was a lightning in the bright sky followed by thunderous sounds.  It was very unusual and some of the people peeked under the shelter of the bus stand, to get a glimpse of the passing flash of lightning streak which ran across the sky.  This was the first time I remember seeing lightning in the noon day sky.  Later on as I pondered over this the following scripture came to my mind

Mat 24:27  For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

Greetings in the name of our precious Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ

It was the 20th of December 2013 and I was seeking the Lord for three days.  Giving as much time in prayer during these three days.  As I came to the end of the three days of prayer and seeking God, I waited on the Lord for a Word.  A Word of direction for the future and particularly for the business. This is what I saw and this is the Word the Lord sent me.

As I waited, I suddenly saw a burst of clouds and in the clouds I saw the Lord seated on the throne.  I was unable to see His face. After this I saw a Lamb.   This vision was followed by the Word, I am coming quickly, Be prepared.

Then as I came to the end of the three days of prayer, I was worshiping the Lord with my guitar, once again the Lord sent a Word – Rev 22:20.  At first I thought it would be a closing benediction but was later surprised to note that it was a confirmation of what I saw. The Bible says in Rev 22:20

He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

In the year 2008/09 the Lord had shown me the scripture Rev 22:12 in a vision after which I had started to send occasional emails to family and friends.

Rev 22:12 says

“And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work.

Please see this video, it is only about 40 secs but probably the best and clear depiction of what will happen.  These events are not far away.

As the Bible says in Matt chp 24, the generation in which the signs are manifested , that generation shall not pass away till all these things take place, Matt 24:34. The signs are here and the Prophets of God say we are that generation !!!!Let us keep our eyes on Him and be PREPARED.

Watch and Pray

…See that you are not troubled….Watch and pray…….                                       


There is a story told about a preacher who would be found sharing his testimonies and also the Word of God at the Church street corner.   In the earlier days the people  would stand or stop by on their bi-cycles and listen to him.   This went on for months and years and now the people no more used bicycles, and they used fast cars.  Moreover they did not have much time to wait and listen to the preacher who was getting older.   So there were very few, hardly one or two people who would listen to him.  After a few more years with the coming of the mobile phones and Facebook, there was absolutely no one who would standby to listen to the truth spoken by the old preacher.  Finally one small boy who saw the old preacher almost everyday at the Church street corner asked him ” Why do you preach anymore, no one seems to be listening to you”.  Very patiently the preacher replied ” Before I preached to change people, now I am preach so that I may not change.”  Very close to what the Lord said,  Will I find faith when I return.

Today it requires determination and right decisions made  by His grace, so that we are not be sucked away by a materialistic lifestyle.  We will need Him and have to constantly seek Him so that our foot slip not.  Let us look to Him, call on Him so that we can stand when the evil day comes.  Now are the days when we must fulfill our responsibility as a soldier of Jesus Christ more than ever before.   God gives us a whole heavenly spiritual and invisible armory, which we can put on by faith as written in Eph 6:11,14-17




Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;

armor of God

This is the day for us to wage a warfare for our nation, cities and our families with the whole armor of God.   To pray for His Kingdom to be built in our nations, to be built up in our Churches and for the kingdom of the devil to be razed to the ground.

In the earlier years, the schools in the USA had regular prayers before the sessions started. It was an atheist parent that approached the court for the prayers  to be stopped.  The court passed the ruling with zero objections from the Christians.  The rest is history.  All Christian crosses and signages also have been removed.  The Our Father is no more prayed in the name of religious tolerance.

Let us whole heartedly pray for our leaders as mentioned in  2 Tim 2:1,2

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men,
for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.


Prayer : Loving and most gracious Heavenly Father.  Prepare us as we come to you this day.  Help us to see our life in the light of your  Holy Scriptures.  Change our lives that we may be prayer warriors.  People that will pray and take victory over the enemy in all walks of life.  Fill us with the Spirit of prayer and supplication and grant us your grace, that we may willfully commit our lives and time to pray, in this most needed hour.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

The movie – Noah – released

Many a times the Spiritual world and its events are depicted in the natural world, in various ways.  Recently the movie Noah was released in Singapore.  At first when I saw the signage I thought it would be a secular movie.  But then I learnt that it may not be totally relevant to scriptures,  but the name itself sounds like  “The hand writing on the wall.”  May the discerning take note and take to heart.

And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:

In Luke 21 we read the story of an old widow who put in a very small offering in the temple treasury, amidst the rich who put in a lot of money. But Jesus said this poor widow has put in more than all. God does not look at the size of the offering but at the heart of the giver. He sees the motives and intentions of our heart. So in His eyes the poor become rich, the weak become strong and the low become high.

In the days of Noah, before the flood came, the Lord saw that the people had become extremely wicked and their thoughts were constantly and totally evil. Increasing Violence, lust for power and degrading moral values. People lost direction in life and God was not in their scheme of things at all. And God said to Noah, I intend to make an end of all flesh, for through men the land is filled with violence; and behold, I will destroy them and the land ( Gen 6:13 ). This was the beginning of the end in those days. God kept alive Noah and his family, eight souls in all and wiped out the human race.

Today, political instability, Gay marriages, filthy moral values, Obscene lifestyles and more. Canada wants to introduce sex education even in primary classes, open mention of occult and witch craft through movies like harry potter, thus making what the Bible calls an abomination a fad and a University, and thus preparing the new generation to learn witDSC_0002chcraft and denounce all godly values and be separated from God. Harry potter is an evil  seed planted in the tender hearts of the new generation. And Christians also knowingly/unknowingly have invested to get these books and videos for their children thus contributing to the growth of the devils kingdom. Then there is lust for power and position, fear of what others say about us and diminishing or absolutely no fear of God or what God thinks about us.

“When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day.  In those days before the Flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat.  Matt 24:37,38

Are we not in such days? Today where does our heart choose to be. The time is come for us  to decide either totally for Him or against Him.

“Time to fully  turn to God, because the Kingdom of Heaven is near. ” Time to examine ourselves, REPENT and TURN to God and He will have mercy upon us for His goodness and mercy endures forever.


Prayer : Loving and most gracious Heavenly Father.  Oh! God of all mercies. Look upon us with your eyes of compassion and mercies. Help us, by your Spirit to discern the times that we are in.  Help us to examine our lives carefully and Repent and forsake anything that is displeasing in your sight.  Help us to love you and love others as you have taught us. By your grace and mercies grant us victory in every circumstance in our lives.   In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

There are a group of people from Nepal who are called Gurkhas and they are know for their fearless military prowess.

The former Indian Army Chief of Staff Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, once stated that “If a man says he is not afraid of dying, he is either lying or is a Gurkha” and may I add ” or a true disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ”

Of this clan there would be certain who would be in cities.  I have seen them in my childhood days.  They are very pleasant and friendly too. They keep watch over  the suburbs and city by night.  They have a stick with them and as they walk around, they  hit this stick on  the road.  Thus signalling that they are on rounds. Some of them go on cycles and also blow a whistle.   If at all a thief is spotted they blow the whistle to alert the people and would go after the thief.    This is the traditional work of a watch man who would be brave and alert the people, thus guarding the city.

Many a times in big houses we also see trained dogs. These dogs are at times also pet named as –  watcher.  Their duty at night  is to keep watch over the house.  Either they bark and alert their master or trained ones would even chase or attack a thief.

In the Spiritual world, this is a watchman’s trumpet call i.e the watch man of the city blows a trumpet when he sees danger coming to the city.   When the thief is trying to break into the city gates or  when the thief tries to enter the families.  This Email is a watchman’s trumpet call to you, to wake up and WATCH. To WATCH and PRAY.

One cannot despise or jump out of the times and seasons they are found in.

 This message came to me concerning Edom :Someone from Edom  keeps calling to me, “Watchman, how much longer until morning? When will the night be over?” The watchman replies, “Morning is coming, but night will soon follow. If you wish to ask again, then come back and ask.”   Isa 21:11,12

Day and night passes by but a spiritual darkness covers the land or is coming.  The morning is coming but the night will soon follow. There is a night coming when no man can work.   Now let us do the works of God while we are in the day.  Declining value systems, Degrading moral compass, a material world without need for God. The morning is slowly changing  to night. Who can hold the fort ? Only the praying Christian, only the praying Churches and families, can keep the light burning for the Lord said ‘ As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.’

Cry out now, call out now, reconcile now, Seek Him now, forgive those you need to forgive now, Get right with God now, Do everything you need to now so we can escape the SUDDENLIES.

His watchmen are blind, They are all ignorant; They are all dumb dogs, They cannot bark; Sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.  Isa 56:10

The watchmen must bark, warn, raise the alarm when they see danger coming, they must blow the trumpet. So that the people may be alerted and the city may be protected from the coming danger.

A disciple of the Lord is a farmer who has to sow seed, an athlete who has to run a race with the required discipline and also a soldier who has to be trained and ready at all times, to fight the enemy.   Two countries may not always be at war , but the army is always trained and ready if war breaks.  There is a rising call to prepare for the battle in the spirit with the armour of God. Every disciple must get ready

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
(Eph 6:13-16 NKJV)


Prayer : Loving and most gracious Heavenly Father.  Thank you Lord for keeping us safe through out this week and giving us a new day.  Help us to understand the times that we live in today.  Help us to draw nigh to you so that you may draw nigh to us, as written in your Word.   Cleanse our lives with your precious blood and help us to take all the actions and decisions required (forgive, repent, reconcile, prioritise  ..) that we may truly enthrone you as King in our life.   Prepare us to do all that you want us to do.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

We  all recently witnessed a very sad incident of the disappearance of a large aircraft with so many people on board. There was no logical explanation of what really happened,yet.   Why did it go off course ?  The vastness of the oceans, the nations involved and the technologies used only reminds us about the frailty of man, the vastness of creation and the awesomeness of the Creator.  As a man of God said the days of the  SUDDENLY’S are here.  And suddenly in Russia, and suddenly an aircraft disappears…..

Even as the Lord Jesus spoke of  many signs that would precede His coming, He also told us to Watch and pray.  What are we to Watch ?  So definitely the time and seasons that we live in, are not a time to be complacent.

First let us acknowledge that the days that we live in are evil. There is evil accelerating on all sides.  As we acknowledge this , then comes also the desire and the need to know what we have to do next.

What do we Watch for ? We have to Watch for our children, Watch for our families, Watch the events that occur in our countries and globally and pray, pray and pray.  How to pray ? How would we pray if we had to loose a loved one in the above incident. How would our hearts sorrow and bleed.  Let us tear our hearts now, for our children, families, cities and nations.  The time is such that only the prayers of the saints and the Church will move the hand of God to destroy the powers of darkness and the works of the enemy.

The prayers of the parents especially the mothers are very close to Gods heart.  Years back a servant of God mentioned to me how my mothers tears had blessed me.  Today I can recall so many incidents in which the Lord Almighty saved me from death.  By His grace the Lord has kept me.  Mothers Watch over your children in prayer.  Seek Gods ways and Gods will for them and for yourselves.  Pray the Scriptures over their lives.  God will hear.  See this as a time not to get entangled with any cares or affairs which does not have an eternal purpose. Let God go with you wherever you go.

As I am now in Singapore I Watch and pray for this nation, lifting my prayers to the Living God for His mercies.  Watch. Watch for your nations and for the  things God places in your heart.  Let not the TV sets and Social Media enslave us. These are the days to be found in your prayer closets, prayer meetings, in the Church, in Praise and Worship and in HIS Word and a time to step out to do something for the Lord Jesus.

The killing of innocent lives through abortion brings Gods attention and judgement.  The casinos and evil life style releases evil spirits into the land to move people towards destruction and the land keeps moving into darkness.   The prophet Jonah warned the people of Nineveh and they repented from their sinful lifestyle through fasting and prayer and God spared them from the coming judgement.

In closing

Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past. For behold, the Lord comes out of His place To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; The earth will also disclose her blood, And will no more cover her slain.
(Isa 26:20-21 NKJV)

Prayer : Loving and most gracious Heavenly Father.  Oh! God of all mercies. Look upon us with your eyes of compassion and mercies. Forgive our wrong doings, forgive the sins in the land.  Cleanse us from the sin of not seeking you with our whole heart, soul, strength and mind. Give us the spirit of prayer and supplication to watch, to watch for our children, our families, our cities, and our nations in prayer.  In your judgements remember mercy.  Remember us Oh! Lord.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
