Ishwar Putra Arun’s message is to remember.

images (32)

God is the creator of mankind and He loves you. You were created by Him and He knows everything about you.

You were created to have a relationship with God. But that relationship was broken when you disobeyed God. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Bible, Romans 3:23)

Since perfection is unobtainable for you that made God unobtainable. Sin separates you from God. Since God is the source of life separation from Him means death. 

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life.” (Bible, Romans 6:23)

God fixed this and He sent His Son in order to pay the penalty for your sins. Now through faith your relationship with God can be restored. Your sins can be forgiven and you can have eternal life.

The forgiveness of sins is not by doing works, it is a free gift based on what the Ishwar Putra did for you. You receive your forgiveness by placing your faith and trust in Him.

True Light has come into the World

images (31)

 

God is light and God is love.  Before creation, that’s all that ever existed. And to create, so that He could experience Himself, God created His opposite-darkness.  God separated Himself into three creative energies that came together at this one dark point, which is called a black hole by scientists.  This moment is when it all began-the big bang.

Just as the colour white contains all the colours within itself, God too is that light that contains everything including darkness within Himself.  God created the universe and He sent us-His children forth, to live and enjoy His divine playground but God knew that we, His children would get mesmerised and lost in the multicoloured universe that He had created out of His own light therefore God-who is formless, took form and came down into His own creation so that He could guide us all.

Imagine a person who has created this vast universe; who has all the knowledge and who has all the power.  Then imagine this very person coming into this world solely to guide us back to our true heritage. That’s how lucky we are!

And that is exactly what has been happening periodically over the entire life of the universe and this is also what happened almost 5000 years ago when God came to us in human form.

The question is – Why did God do that? Why does God have to come in a physical form to guide us?  The answer is simple. How do we communicate with a blind man? Since the blind man cannot see,  we either communicate with Him through the spoken word, or through the sense of touch, similarly since we are not capable of seeing God in His true blinding light, He communicates with us in the only possible way-as a human! Thus “God” becomes “flesh”, He becomes one of the creatures He had made-Man.

Why does God do this? It is because He knows that even though man lives in darkness, there is an eternal lamp of light within man that is just waiting to be lit. God knows that He can light this lamp of the seeking man, since it is God Himself who has embedded that eternally seeking, fiery nature in man that seeks the highest level possible. Ultimately for man, It’s not about what He can gain in this life, in profits or pleasure or making a lasting imprint on this earth, since none of these will satisfy His soul. Ours is a spiritual need, that hints at what we were created for, which is to have fellowship with God and to abide by His will.

God came to earth because He loves us; He came to deliver truth in a world of false beliefs. But the main reason He came to earth was to be the final remedy for our sins. Just as a physician, who knows everything about medicine, yet cannot heal his own illness, similarly man cannot get rid of the fruits of his own wrong deeds. The simple reason is that since we have been born in darkness and we have lived in darkness over many lives over millions of years, we are steeped in darkness and error. It has become one with us.  We have done many wrongs.  We have only further burrowed our way deeper into the darkness, like a bird getting further and further entrapped in a snare because of its own struggles.  We may have got used to living in darkness where even the minutest glow seems like light, but the truth is that we live in Sin. Some of us may think that we don’t but even our best behaviour is far from what is required to be in the presence of the almighty.

We are like a problem child who doesn’t study, constantly plays pranks, troubles his friends, makes a nuisance of himself and yet thinks that he is good.  Such a child needs to be taken in hand and guided and that is what God comes down to do. His love prompts Him to become Man to accomplish what only He could do – rescue mankind.  Because we are sinful, and in a spiritually wrecked condition, we are in need of redemption but are simply not capable of redeeming ourselves. Nothing short of the eternal creator can do this job.

This is why God has to periodically come to the earth-to cleanse the affect of the disease of sin being inherited and passed on from generation to generation of humanity. That is what is so amazing about the story of Jesus in the Holy Bible. The creator came to earth; God who is perfect, righteous and holy lived among His creatures that are unholy, unrighteous, even those who were enemies of Him. He led by example, returned hatred with love and showed all of us a higher path and in the end, took upon Himself the cumulative sin of humanity-paid our ransom- and suffered on the cross for our sins.  All He wanted to do was to suck away the hatred , fear, avarice and greed that plagued mankind and show that love conquers all.  That is why Jesus even on the cross never uttered even a world of reproach towards His tormentors.  All he could say was ” Forgive them Father for they know not what they do!”

The story of man and of this universe is a story of us giving in to temptation that was offered by Satan. After man was made and given dominion over the earth, Satan, an angelic creature smarter and more powerful than man came to Eve in the garden of Eden, to deceive her. Through tempting Eve to disobey God’s commandments, he tempted Adam as well and this resulted in Adam also disobeying God.  This is how sin was brought down to earth. When Adam sinned, he opened the channels of sin that are open till this day. Sin entered into man’s nature and spread to the offspring of all people. The river of sin runs to this day and it is easy to go with its flow and difficult to go against its flow but that is the test that we face if we ever want to return to our true home. What is this test? Because God is holy and righteous, to be with Him, we have to be holy and righteous as well and we have to be so from the depths of our being and not because we expect some worldly reward.  That is why God judges us.  He checks the sincerity of our righteousness. He has to judge us for our obedience, not only in the public domain (where most of us are righteous) but in the private domain as well.

To do this God sends His only Son who comes not to do his own whims and fancies but who comes to do the will of the Lord.

Bible, John 6:38: “For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.” As a worker, he, the Son came to do the will of the Father. Bible, 1 John 4:14: “That the Father sent the Son  as the Saviour of the world.” God did not send an angel nor a good man, the saviour is God who became man. The Bible says, “the grace of God has appeared to all men.”

2000 years ago God sent His only Son as Jesus of Nazareth.  Today the Lord has again sent His only Son “Arun” and the Lord – today known as His own rupam – works though His son and Lord Kalki (Part of Narayana) came for the people of all races and religions. The teaching of Sun of God “Arun” is for everyone but not everyone will respond since only those who acknowledge – not to the world but to themselves – that they are sinful.

How do we judge if we are sinful? Simple One only has to look at God’s standard, His commands and His law to find they have not obeyed them perfectly and that they have fallen short of keeping them.

Bible, Hebrew 10:7-10 “Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come – in the volume of the book it is written of Me – to do Your will, O God.’  Then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.”

In Bible, John 8:12 Son of God said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”  In Bible,  John 12:46: “I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.”  Darkness is representative of sin and judgment. Sin darkens our understanding and ruins our living. That we need one that can show us the way to live, as a light in darkness so we will not stumble. This is why the gospel is associated with light because it shows us our sin and presents the Saviour. Bible, 2 Cor. 4:3: “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the God of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Lord, who is the image of God, should shine on them.” Most may not want to think of themselves as in darkness but this is how God looks at them without the truth of knowing Lord.

Bible, I John 1:5-6: “This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness can survive. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.”

The light is His Word and His way, Jesus said, “I am the Way the truth and the life” to come to the Father. To have this life He offers you must accept Him as the way and embrace the truth.

John the apostle writes that Jesus “was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.” (Bible, John 1:9-10)

This is the eternal mission of the Lord – to guide His children home. To come to earth and save us. This mission is for everyone, since everyone is lost. No one born is not lost since He is born out of sin. We are all born out of the sinful desire that attracts us to the sins of our fathers. This is what sin does to perpetuate itself, it has the nature of darkness and we become comfortable living in a fallen world. But no one has to live in the world or leave this world the same way.

This requires understanding and this is why the Son of God periodically comes as a teacher; a guide and a Guru. He does not come as a ruler but as a man who serves the people so they can understand better how to relate to God. Bible, Matthew 20:28 “Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

Bible, Luke 9:56: “For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.” With simple message encapsulated in love, God the Father sent the Son from heaven to earth to become a man to demonstrate what life is like living in obedience to their creator. Jesus was the perfect example of man having fellowship with his creator, to have joy and live life in its fullest; in purity. It was the way God intended it to be from Adam onward. As we allow Christ and the other avatar’s of God to Lord over our lives, we are offered peace through trials, harmonious living, and a clean conscience. One day we will have beyond what words can describe, beyond our dreams and imaginations (Bible, 1 Corinthians 2:9).

God’s message to us through His Only begotten Son. Bible, John 3:16-17: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” John continues in 3:19 “And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”

Evil has been with us since Eve and Adam disobeyed God and ate the fruit from the forbidden tree. It springs from our fallen nature and mankind’s history tells the story and bears witness to this evil that is part of mans living. We were made to be peaceful in the likeness of our creator. In a sinful condition we were born “to be wild,” in the new spiritual birth we were born to have God’s nature of righteousness (Bible, I John 2:29).

Bible, John 10:10:  “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” This means a changed life from sin to righteousness, the fruit of the Spirit instead of the works of the flesh. These are “love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control” (Bible, Gal 5:22-23) You say rightly that I am a king. “For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”  God’s love holds Him back from judgment, He is merciful and does not want to see any perish so He continues to allow His message of forgiveness and reconciliation to Him be proclaimed by those who know Him. But there is a day coming when this message will not be allowed the freedom it now enjoys.

Many men have tried to find the right way when Jesus said He is the way. They embraced all that was offered but only those who take the one way will find life.

Following rules and regulations of religion is not the good news that people think it is, Jesus said to follow him and explained how.

In today’s time the way to find the Lord is through the Ministry of Lord Kalki.  This ministry shows us the internal path and the internal religion because the Spirit of God dwells within each one of us and in the believer,  this eternal spirit of life begins to transform us from the inside. No other religion or way can offer us this because they only deal with the sinfulness of man from outside.  The ministry of Lord Kalki deals with our inherent spiritual nature and makes it stronger.

No other religion can offer this nor can it deliver it because this way has the life of God Himself.

Only  Lord Kalki’s Ministry is based on faith, hope and love. We have Faith to live in a fallen world where things do not often go the way we would like. Yet we can trust God who is watching over us and who personally cares for our life. We have Hope for our life today no matter what happens and we have hope for a better future. Hope that the life to come is going to be more fulfilling and than anything we experienced on earth. We can Love God who gave the new way of LOVE AND HOPE to save us from the penalty of our sins. Because of this new life, love is indwelled in us that we are also able to love people in a greater manner, even those we may not know.

Be pure because God is pure, Part – 3 – Ishwar Putra Arun

 

ATT_1439711621344_IMG_20150805_185941The Lord has taken avatar on the earth in the name of kalki.  He desires that His children-us-not live in sin since He Himself is sinless.  It is fairly clear that in today’s time, people’s behavior and style of worship both have become careless and defective.  Both kings and their subjects are living lives that are against the teachings of God and are trying to deceive the Lord.  The covenant that was agreed upon between man and God has been willfully broken by man.  Therefore God says very clearly to man that man must obey the wishes of God and implement them in his daily life.  He also clearly says that man should not be corrupt and nor try to make the image of God corrupt since God can never be corrupt.

God further says that He can never allow the corrupt and the sinful to be in His presence.  The acts of God can never be in sin especially because God never acts for His own interests.  There is nothing in the universe that the Lord may want and that may be denied to Him, therefore God doesn’t need to act to get anything but the people are not like that.  They are full of sin since they desire objects and will adopt any means to get them.  This is the reason that man is never free of sin since he is ready to adapt any means to get what he desires.  There is sin even in his worship of God since even that is full of desire for worldly objects.  God says that He will purify this sinful nature of man.  When the Lord came to the earth as Kalki He knew that the correct way to worship Him was not well known.  When the Lord came and took form as kalki, He became visible to the angels and His name spread amongst the population and the world believed in Him.

In Lord’s Plan we had discerned the four essential pillars of knowledge that show us the path to the true nature of reality.  This helps us get the right perspective on how to discover our true potential and to reach our divine nature. Let us take the discussion to its conclusion.

We will start by summarizing the four pillars of essential knowledge. What are they?

That there is nothing apart from the Lord and everything was created from  within a portion of the Lord.

  1. That the Lord created this universe to have someone to love and to experience that love
  2. That after creating the material universe, He permeated a spark of Himself inside each pore of the universe. We call each of that spark an individual soul.
  3. Each of us is one of those divine sparks. That divine spark takes on a material body of its choosing, to experience a particular part of this creation that it feels attached to.  And the Lord experiences and enjoys this creation through the eyes of each of the trillions of individual souls He has created.

When we understand the nature of this truth, not theoretically, but from the heart then we understand the nature of the universe, the nature of the Lord and our role in this divine play-Leela.  The fact is that the Lord is the only ever-constant reality and this universe has been created by him so that he may experience it and enjoy it through us.

Once we realize this reality – that only God is real and this universe is an ever-changing finite entity that has no real basis, our soul yearns to be back to our true home.  For that we have to free ourselves from the limitations of our mind and body.  The body is relatively easy to control but the mind is a difficult thing to be free off.  The mind is constantly invaded and tormented by the six twisters.  What are these six Twisters?-They are-Lust, Anger, Selfish Love, Greed, the Ego and fear.  Whatever we see and experience in this world comes through this filter of the mind which distorts the truth of what we see. We are never free of the influence of the mind. An example will make the impact of the mind clear. Once there was a child who was hit by a car and injured badly. The colour of the car was a bright red, a colour that most children love. Time passed, the child’s injuries healed but even many years after the accident, even when he had reached adulthood, whenever he would see a red car, the man would get panic stricken.  The reason was that his mind remembered and associated that red car with the pain he had experienced.  This is the impact of our mind and we are constantly impacted by the world around us through the prism of this mind, its memories and associations and we are never truly free of its influence.  In such a situation how can we ever be free? How can we see the truth? How can we get out of the reactionary mode of our past memories and attachments?

The only way to do it is by changing the direction of our attention.  What is attention?  Attention is the focus that we put on one object out of the many objects that we could put our focus on.  The key thing here is choice. The reason we choose one particular object over another is because we desire that object. Thus attention is always driven by desire.  We focus our attention on what we desire.  Most of us, most of the time, focus on the external world and on external objects because we desire to experience this world and the objects that we are attached to.  As mentioned in part 2, this is the prime method by which Kaal-the keeper of creation maintains this creation.

But what if chose to redirect our attention somewhere else?  What if we focussed our attention on God?  This would be the key to our salvation.  The choice is ours. We can choose to take away our attention from this external world and instead focus in on the Lord who resides within us.  That is the path to our liberation.

This can either be the most difficult thing to do or it can be the easiest thing to do. It would be difficult to do if we thought that this world was all there is and if we were deeply attached to the objects of this world.  In that case we would never be able to put our attention on the Lord but if on the other hand we understood the true nature of reality as enumerated above, we would find it rather easy to focus on the Creator instead of the created.

When this transformation happens in us our personality would change.  We would show it by…

  1. By abandoning falsehood and deceit, since these belong to this world and have nothing to do with God. We also do as we promise to do. “By living according to Your word.”(Bible, Psalm 119:9)
  2. By constantly focussing on God and seeking Him with all our feelings, because we love Him. “I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from Your commands.”(Bible, Psalm 119:10)
  3. By never going against our father’s wishes, not because we fear Him but because we love Him. “I have hidden Your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”(Bible, Psalm 119:11)
  4. By praising the Lord since he is the only praiseworthy by far. “Praise be to you, O LORD; teach me Your decrees.”(Bible, Psalm 119:12)
  5. By always speaking about the Lord wishes and desire to other people who also seek him. “With my lips I recount all the laws that come from Your mouth.”(Bible, Psalm 119:13)
  6. By feeling happy when we fulfil God’s wishes. “I rejoice in following Your statutes as one rejoices in great riches.”(Bible, Psalm 119:14)
  7. By always thinking about God, His wishes and ways by which we could come closer and closer to Him. “I meditate on Your precepts and consider Your ways.”(Bible, Psalm 119:15)
  8. By enjoying fulfilling His wishes and commandments. “I delight in Your decrees; I will not neglect Your word.(Bible, Psalm 119:16)

The essentials steps in a nutshell are that when we love God we will automatically focus our attention on Him by

(1) Seeking God with all our heart

(2) Hiding God’s Word in our heart

(3) Meditating on God’s precepts

(1) Seeking God with all our heart: – What does it mean to seek God with all Your heart?

It means to desire Him, want Him, and need Him above any and every other desire, want, or need. The heart is the seat of emotions, of desire (Bible, Rom. 10:1), Love (Bible, Mark 12:30, 33), Reason (Bible, Mark 2:8), belief (Bible, Rom. 10:10), trust (Bible, Prov. 3:5), and it is from the heart that you are to do God’s will (Bible, Eph. 6:6), etc. It is with all of what you are that you are to seek God. With Your entire being. “Love the Lord Your God with all Your heart and with all Your soul and with Your entire mind,” (Bible, Matth. 22:37). The Son of God said, “If you love me, you will obey what I command,” (Bible, John 14:15). It is David’s love for God that motivates Him to obey what God commands. That is why He says – “do not let me stray from Your commands,”

(2) Hiding God’s Word in Your heart: – How do you hide God’s Word in Your heart?

(i) You memorize. So that the Holy Spirit can bring it to Your remembrance when you need it.

So you can then be comforted, corrected, and guided. When God’s Word is hidden in Your heart? You won’t sin against Him. “…So that I might not sin against you,”

The Bible keeps you from sin. Sin keeps you from the Bible.

(ii) The Word of God is light. When God’s Word is hidden in Your heart, praises come out of it. “Praise be to you, O LORD.” When God’s Word is hidden in Your heart, you speak of God and His Word.

(iii) With my lips I recount all the laws that come from Your mouth.  “With my lips I have declared all the judgments that come from Your mouth.” The man says, “With my lips I have told of all the ordinances of Thy mouth.”

(iv)When God’s word is hidden in you, rejoicing flows out of you. I rejoice in following Your statutes,” A statute is a formal rule or regulation like the dietary laws. And how might you rejoice? “As one rejoices in great riches,” How would you react if you won the Lottery? With great riches there is exultation.

(3) Meditating on God’s precepts: – What does it mean to meditate on God’s Word?

It means to “consider” God’s ways. To consider means to “regard or pay attention to.”It means to think over and over about Scripture. It means to try to discover new depths to its meaning, new applications of its truth. It means to make it a part of you . You may delight in God’s decrees and not neglect His word

In conclusion, this can be applied to the physical heart. But it also refers to the spiritual center of life. It is where thoughts, desires, sense of purpose, will, understanding, and character reside. So, to be pure in heart means to be blameless in who we actually are. Being pure in heart involves having a singleness of heart toward God. A pure heart has no hypocrisy, no guile, no hidden motives. The pure heart is marked by transparency and an uncompromising desire to please God in all things. It is more than an external purity of behavior; it is an internal purity of soul.
