Ministry training is for anyone who wants to join in the work of bringing the world back to God in revival. In some countries it it dangerous to do so. One of our students is found in the county of Pakistan. In that country it is forbidden that one would declare publicly that one has faith in Jesus. It is considered blasphemy against the Prophet Mohammed.

Many of those who are discovered to be Christians find themselves facing harsh fines, imprisonment, or even murder.

Here in the United States, one man I know personally told me that if he were living in Pakistan – his home nation – he would have a life expectancy of only a few days if he were discovered to have abandoned his Islamic faith and to have become a Christian. Yet in spite of this danger, one of our students (I’ll call him Paul to protect his identity) is being trained to bring the good news of Jesus to the people of his land.

In Pakistan, over 96% of the population are followers of the Islamic faith, but Paul is a man of faith in Jesus. As he himself says, “We were six brothers and a sister. Four of my brothers have passed away. I am the youngest brother. We were a nominal Christian family. We used to go to church every Christmas and Easter day only. I have never been wanting even like to be a Pastor.” He goes on to say, “I had a sickness of pain in my chest. One day it was so severe that I could not deal with the pain at all.  I do not know why, but I was crying to Lord Jesus, ‘Please heal me of this pain because since I am not a Muslim, I cannot go to a Doctor to consult about my sickness.’ Thank God, he replied to me with his voice, ‘Paul you are very far from me. You need to come to me.’  I surrendered myself to Jesus Christ; I confessed my sins. Praise the Lord He healed me of my pain! I do not have any sickness in my body since then.”.

Pakistan Online Bible School Needed

Paul’s family heritage is that his grandfather was a since follower of the Sikh faith. He intended for his children to follow in the same faith, but Paul’s father had heard of Jesus and decided to follow the Christian faith. He was a leader in his fellowship all the rest of his life. But Paul had hesitated to follow Jesus until his experience of the call of God came to him in his pain. Now he is in training to be a Christian Leader among his people in Pakistan. This Pakistan Online Bible School option at CLI is so needed!

Now , at age 53, Paul is in training so that, as he puts it, “God is using me for his glory for the deliverance of captives of a demon, the healing of sickness, and the preaching of the Lord’s Good News. I want reach to unreached peoples. In Pakistan, there are many areas where people live in poverty and are in destitute condition. They are waiting for men of God to be raised up, so that the lost can be evangelized and be discipled.”

Paul knows that God has a great harvest in Pakistan waiting for the message of Jesus Messiah. He wants to be used by God to bring in that harvest. Knowing that, we pray for the Lord of the Harvest to raise up even more Christian Leaders so that they can be the sowers of the seed of the kingdom of God. The Word cannot be contained when a man like Paul gets his training and continues to spread the word. It is like the parable of the yeast that Jesus told in Matthew 13. There Jesus says, “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.” We are eager to see people like Paul, called by God to be a leader among His people, bringing the good news little by little, until the whole world is filled with the knowledge of God.

Paul is receiving this training even though no Bible school would be allowed to operate in Pakistan. By means of the internet, CLI can provide Paul with the training he needs to faithfully proclaim the Word of God.  We pray for protection to surround Paul and his family. We pray for support so that faithful servants like Paul are able to get the training they need without having to leave their homelands. We pray for courage for Paul in the difficult struggle that he faces as he tends to the flock that is in his care.

LET NOT YOUR HEART TROUBLED   Expository Sermon in the Preaching Class by Gill

“Envoy of Christ’s Church” – Pakistan

John 14:1-5

The last week of September 2013 has been disastrous for Pakistan.   Two casualties occurred one after another.  I’ll put it this way, on Saturday, September 2013, I just came out of my home to preach in the church Envoy of Christ on the way. I met with a boy 14 years of age who wanted asked me if there was any home to be rented out.  I replied, “There is no such home because the families living in this area have their own homes.”   My answer perturbed the boy because their landlord had demanded his home back from them, and that day was the dead line to vacate home, otherwise, the landlord would take possession of his home forcibly.  I kept walking to the church while thinking about the boy and his family and home he was looking for and where they were living right then.  So I preached the Word of God, and the next day was Sunday.  I ministered to the Lord right there.  After the Sunday church Service, the news came on T.V. channels that suicide bombers have attacked a church in the city of Peshawer, and as a result, hundreds of people had lost their lives, and many were injured. Many persecuted Christians affected.  Two days later. a massive destructive earthquake hit the southwest of Balochistan province in Pakistan.   Not only where I was, but on the whole Pakistani nation was in the state of agony, distress, fear, and mourning. As a minister of God, I was thinking over all these disasters, and a passage in the Gospel of John was repeatedly coming before my eyes. At first,not understanding the meaning of it, so I prayed to the Lord, and He answered me.  Let us read the passage so that I can share it with you.

John 14:1-5 Let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God, believe also in me.  2. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would I have told you.  I got to prepare a place for you. 3. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you with myself, that where I am you may be also. 4. And you know the way to where I am going,  5.  “Thomas said to him, Lord we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to Father except through me.

In the first verse, John 14:1 Jesus said, “let not your hearts be troubled.  You believe in God; believe also in me.”   Jesus left them and knew everything that would turn against them.  They would have to endure all kinds of opposition. Scribes and rabbis would not allow them to preach the Gospel, and even they would not hesitate to kill them.   Although Jesus had taught many things and revealed mysteries to them, He thought it necessary to tell them to be courageous in all kinds of situations to come. He has commanded that as you believe in God, you believe also in Him. God has delivered the Israelites out of the slavery of Egypt and allowed them to dwell in the promised land.  “Believe in me.  I have delivered you out of the slavery of sin, and now, eternal life is yours.”

Verse 14:2  In my father’s house are many rooms, if it were not so would I have told that I got to prepare a place for you.  Here Jesus is telling his disciples about heaven where He is heading to, that there are many rooms for believers to live in for eternity in my father’s house. He is assuring them he is going ahead of them  to prepare a place for them where the people will live forever, and then he will come back to take them and you with himself so that where Jesus is, we will also be with him – God the Father and Jesus, our elder brother.  What a place to live where Jesus is.

Verse 14:3  And you know  the way to where I am going. Thomas said to him,” Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?”. Jesus said to him, “ I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to  the Father except through me.” Jesus is saying, “You know the way where I am going.”  But one of His disciples, Thomas, asked Jesus, “We do not know where you are going, so how we can know the way?” . Jesus had taught the disciples for almost three and half years but Thomas says we don’t know the way and destination where you are going. Jesus made it clear to them that I am through whom you can go and you have to go to my father.  Jesus said, “I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE.  No one comes to the Father except through me.”  Jesus is the only Way to God.  Jesus had explicitly told the disciples that He was the only way to heaven, and Jesus has made this way by traveling through the cross to reach his father, although He came from heaven.  That is why He said, “Whosoever does not pick up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.  Whosoever finds their life will lose it; and whosoever loses his life for My sake will find it (Matthew 10;38-39).”  In the book of Hebrews 10:19-22 we read: “Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having bodies washed with pure water.” So this is the Way to heaven where there is Jesus and God the Father.

THE TRUTH:  Jesus cannot lie because He is The Word, became flesh, and made his dwelling amongst us. And we have seen His glory, the glory of the one and only Son who came from the Father, full of Grace and Truth (John 1:14). and the Apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 1;20; For no matter how many promises God made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.

THE LIFE:   Jesus is the Life.  No doubt, He is life because according to John 5;26, For as the Father has life in himself, so He has granted the son to have life in himself.  The very famous verse, John 3:16, says; “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whosoever believes in him shall have eternal life.”

In this passage addressing His disciples, Jesus said, “Let not your heart troubled. You believe in God, believe also in me.”  Actually, Jesus guarantees you will have a room.  The solution is to keep your heart from being troubled during trying times and to trust in God (Psalm 42;5) a solution that  the Jews had known all along, and to also, trust in Jesus.  Both are essential.

Just put yourselves in the shoes of the boy who was looking for a home for rent, as he and his family were troubled because of their landlord’s notice, and put yourselves in the shoes of the victim of the church in Peshawer.  They are either dead or alive in hospitals.  They had their home but now they are homeless.  Put yourselves in shoes of those affected by the earthquake,  the people who lost their lives, and or survivors of the quake.   Survivors are looking to the Government and NGOs for the shelter, rescue and food, and medical treatment.  Everyone is troubled and has no peace because they have gone through destructive experiences and want to have life and all necessities met.

But Jesus says earthquakes will hit you, and any kind of mishap can happen.  You can be deprived of your homes, because this world is not for eternity.  He has gone to prepare a place where there is no want of rooms, where dwells eternity.  The reason is that it is God the Father’s household, and Jesus, our elder brother, and believers whom he does not feel ashamed to call them his brothers, are all there.  For this, He says “pick up your cross and follow me, do not love to your brother, parents, children, or your homes more than me, and all this belongs to you in heaven in my father’s household.  Don’t be troubled if I am not in this physical world.  I am coming back soon to take all of you with myself so that where I am so you may be, also.”

The question is not whether the boy and his family who were desperately looking for a home could be successful to find a home for rent or not, or whether  the survivors of the church attacked have been returned to their home sweet home, or whether the survivors of the earthquake in Balochistan have been rehabilitated or not.  The question is what will happen before the coming of Jesus to take His people with himself.  It is written in Gospel of Matthew 24; 6-10 “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nations will rise against nations and kingdoms against kingdoms, and there will be famines and earthquake in various places.  All these are but the beginning of the birth pains.  They will deliver you up to tribulations and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And many will fall away and betray one another and hate one another.”

Recently, an earthquake shook Balochinstan-Pakistan, Greece, near Papua New Guinea, off the coast of Baja California, and off Indonesia with aftershocks at northern Australia and northern Queensland.  Syria is facing the famine due to civil war in its homeland. Daily, you hear in the news of wars, nation rising against nation, believers being torched, and hated everywhere but wait, this is not the end of world, as Jesus said it is the beginning of birth pains as you are affected by earthquakes, afraid of wars, have famine or are being persecuted for Jesus’ name or have left everything behind to follow Jesus.  He says, “Let not your heart trouble you.  You believe in God, believe also in me.  In my father’s house there are many rooms for you to dwell in for eternity where there is Father God and our brother, Jesus (Lord of Lords).  In God’s household, there is no death and no mourning, but rather, happiness.  Jesus and his glory and his father are there with peace forever.  He is coming soon.  Follow him, for he is the WAY; Come to him, for he is TRUTH; Desire him, for he is Life; and remember his guarantee; Let not your heart be troubled. You believe in God, believe in me.  In my father’s house are many rooms for you. Amen.

Become a support of Pakistan ministry training. Pakistan ministry training is very important because Pakistan ministry training is rare in Pakistan.

Mission Pakistan – While Christians celebrate Christmas every December 25, believers in Christ living in Pakistan face persecution or discrimination. Mission Pakistan must thrive with little direct mission support from outside believers.  The Pakistani government frowns on outside help for the church. Still Christian Leaders Institute is able to bring advance training to indigenous missionaries.

Mission Pakistan needs your support and prayers! The German news organization DW reported on December 25, 2012,  “But for Christians in Pakistan, who live under constant fear of persecution by the state and majority Sunni Muslims, there is not much to celebrate.  Christians make up about two percent of the 180 million people living in Pakistan. Rights organizations say that like any other religious minority, they face legal and cultural discrimination in the Islamic Republic.”  See whole story

Mission Pakistan – One Hundred and Sixty Students Enrolled At CLI

Christian Leaders Institute welcomed 160 new students over the last 2 years. Many of them are progressing toward advanced standing at CLI. Some of these students are already established Christian leaders who desperately need advanced ministry training which will greatly assist them in bringing the gospel to Pakistan.

One of these mission Pakistan leader is Parvaiz Alam. Parvaiz is a businessman who runs an orphanage. He writes,  “I am professionally an accountant but also working as an evangelist as an outreach preacher, I have five brothers & sisters. I am also running a ministry organization called “Community Care of Pakistan (CCP)” which is doing work for the needy, poor & deprived Christian community of Pakistan in the field of education. Women empowerment, health, outreach preaching, orphanage etc.” This mission Pakistan leader is being used powerfully by God. mission Pakistan

At Christmas this year, Community Care of Pakistan gave gifts to needy children.  This bi-vocational Christian leader runs this mission Pakistan ministry with very little foreign support. He studies at Christian Leaders Institute so that he will have the training to effectively lead his team of fellow lay leaders. He stated the reason for studying at CLI. “CLI training and scholarship is very important for me and for my organization, because, when I am trained and equipped, my team will be equipped with the Word of God and then we can change others. Its very important in our outreach preaching.” Christian Leaders Institute brings high quality ministry training to help this bi-vocational leader reach people with the gospel.

Mission Pakistan has many Bi-vocational Leaders Ready to be Trained and Mobilized

Meet another Pakistan leader named,  Suleman Masih Gill. “I am 53 years old from Faisalabad, Pakistan. I have been running an advertising agency (Intermedia Communication) on my own and have worked in Pakistan General Insurance Company Limited as a manager. I am married to Shaheen Gill and have one daughter Lisa, 21.

My grandfather was a strong believer of the Sikh faith and his intention for my father was that he would serve the Sikh religion. My father accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior and served a church mission society as a lay leader rather than following his forefather’s doctrine for the rest of his life. We were six brothers, but four have passed away. I am the youngest and I have one sister. We were a nominal Christian family that used to go to church every Christmas and Easter day only. I had never wanted to be a pastor. I had sickness of pain in my chest, but one day it was so severe that I could not stand it at all. I do not know why, but I cried to the Lord Jesus to please heal me of this pain since I would not go to any doctor to consult about my sickness. Thank God, he replied to me with his voice “Suleman you are very far from me, you need to come to me.” To make a long story short, I surrendered myself to Jesus Christ, and made a confession of my sins. Praise the Lord He healed me of my pain and I do not have any sickness in my body so far.”

God has a plan for Mission Pakistan.

“Now God is using me for his glory for deliverance of captives of demon, healing of sickness and preaching of his Good News. I want to reach the unreached since in Pakistan there are many areas where people live in poverty and destitute conditions waiting for men of God to evangelize and disciple them .”

“Of course it is unbelievable for me to be enrolled at CLI, for I have never been or even thought that one day I would get training in an institution like CLI. A scholarship to CLI can be of great significance for equipping me with the word of God and fulfilling my vision to reach the unreached with the gospel and to work with youth who need to learn the Word of God.”
