oes any ignited lamp need extra banner to introduce? The sun itself speaks of its illumination! Only hypnotized person essentially needs awakening! The one who was born in the captivity does need someone to stimulate him up! It is God who, out of His eternal love, did send anointed prophets to awaken up His beloved children those who have had been kept captive spiritually by the cunning Satan and his agents. Literatures are only a tiny media to share the stunning message for the lost world to rouse them up. Yet, these are mere message of the reality that has always been active throughout the world, to lead on the lost, to get reconciled to the Eternal Father of love, forgiveness and reconciliation! All the articles written by me are just factual events those have been happened during my arduous journey on to the eternal light, life and love in Christ Jesus â€“ the unblemished Son of God. Though the path is uneven, but the resurrected Lord who made promise has always been with me to lead on. I am confident He would never leave alone one who does commit to him! Perusal needs tiny moment to transform life of eternal entity! Sincerely, M A Wahab

THE PADMA BRIDGE

ecent storm of discussion is going on over the bridge to connect two banks across the river named Padma in Bangladesh. This river is wide enough, and to build up a bridge, it seems to finance it, only the reserved fund of Bangladesh should not be sufficient. So she proposed the World Bank for funding it. She also proposed to other friendly countries and international organizations to come forward to shoulder this heavy and costly project along with Bangladesh. We also have another bridge over the river Jamuna. It is a successful bridge and both motor vehicle and train lines are set up functionally. But over this bridge arguments has stirred up the world. For some hidden reason, the progress of building and construction has been held up for long period.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 7
Minister of communication has resigned and another councilor is asked to make way for another person in his place. Progress is not on the move and throwing of letters like arrows are piercing this tiny country. The minister of finance affairs becomes embraced before the media. In one word we can say it is undesired horrible fun! We must learn some vital lesson from these embarrassing events for our practical, religious, social and cultural lives. First of all we must admit a fact that we all are human being have been created in the image of the merciful, self-sacrificial peaceloving God. He is the source of all divine virtues and does produce all the best fruits for the benefit of the created beings including human being. He called man the best among all creations. Anyone easily can expect peace and integrity from the best creation- the human being. It must be added one important basic truth that the sagacious God did create a single man named Adam. He blessed and empowered him to cover the world through procreation. God made a woman from a rib of man and blessed the couple to live in peace in heaven with Him. Alas, men were fallen from the place God did set them up. Immediately they found them in the midst of untold disasters. They started producing some sorts of solutions to solve self-made problems. But, alas, they were totally undone! The merciful God appeared to them and asked the cause of their
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 8
hesitation. God wants to help them out, but simultaneously the cause of problem that is the apple of discord must be removed from their reach. Let us come back to our object of discussion, the bridge across the river named Padma. Acquisition of land was already done and even compensation is being disbursing among the victims. All the blue prints of the said bridge are accepted perfectly. No cause is left to make a postponement of the running project. But there has been a big â€˜butâ€™ that has been lingering the construction of this colossal project. None can cross the river through the long desired bridge. Whole humanity is definitely related as brothers and sisters since the origin of all people is a single man. We are called to have peace and harmony with one another, remain busy to help out, love and boost up all. All the religious tenets urge us to love our neighbor better than self. God Himself did prove such at the pinnacle of love in sending Jesus Christ, the proposed redeemer the divine lamb willing to sacrifice self to exonerate the sin of the world. Jesus Christ is the living Word and living Spirit of the eternal God has been revealed into human form to redeem us at the cost of His life. It is to be mentioned that God Himself is the spirit being. He is hundred percent truths. He is light who does enlighten those who come to Him. The pinnacle of love has been translated into His life perfectly and practically, and whole world has been gotten a
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 9
chance to witness the dazzling light of God through our Lord Jesus Christ. He has been crucified on the heart rending cross, died for us and rose up and now through the Spirit He has been leading all the devotees to shine the world that has been groping in darkness. This message is written in book form and is called the glorious Gospel that is good news of salvation. Those who have been spreading this glorious Gospel that was wrought at the cost of our Lord Jesus Christ are called evangelists. Jesus Christ did ask His followers to herald this message that is His arrival into this world in human bondage, sacrificing His life as remission to the sin of the world and has been resurrected from the death to revive rest of the world. This call is called the great commission. It is mandatory for all the believers in Him and those who have been resurrected through Him into a new life are to evangelize people around them. Only ignited are in a position to ignite others. It is natural, blind needs a helper to be led but eyed man moves himself and him does help other who do not see. The evangelical movements have serving the world since the Pentecost. In one occasion three thousands of people were converted to the living Lord Jesus Christ. He has been working through the believers who could understand and comprehend Him as the living Lord. Christianity is heralding the unique message of love rather than teaching people religious tenets and different laws. Jesus does
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 10
teach His followers Himself being abiding in them. It is definitely miraculous and mysterious to the world. Only believers do perceive Him, His presence and His amazing movements but the people of the world do not comprehend Him or His plan (John 1:5). Reading or hearkening information of the Gospel is one aspect of action, but abiding in Him by faith is quite different matter. It is said that if anyone is in Christ, he becomes a new creation that means his attitude and character gets changed into the likeness of the living Lord by the power of the merciful God (2 Cor 5:17). Yes, there must be a group of evangelists, otherwise, how people would hear and without hearing how they would believe in? The final destination of following the living Lord Jesus Christ it is to be totally transformed into His likeness. It is also said to seek His kingdom and righteousness on first priority. The first priority of every believer must stand for the Royal Kingdom and His Righteousness. We must understand what does Kingdom of God mean? It is the living perpetual compassionate Lord Jesus Christ. He should be the goal of all people of the world. All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Only Jesus Christ is the sinless unique person who did stroll in this filthy world without sin, pollution and perversion. He is not of the progeny of the fallen Adam. He is the everlasting Son of the eternal God. He is the Lord and the invincible power of Him and the preordained divine Lamb to be slaughtered to expiate the sin of the world. We must not stop just
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 11
after memorizing two or three lines or verses of the Gospel, but that should be our starting point of our eternal march on to our final goal, to abide in Him and become completely new creation, being changed into His likeness by the power of our Father. Our Father has all power in heaven and on earth. Duly abiding in Him, immediately we would receive all the fruits of the Holy Spirit that is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Every believer is called the salt of the earth, so to make any palatable dish salt is essential and salt must be dissolved into it. While serving any dish salt must not be seen as a chunk, but it must be melted away and by its taste, consumer would understand perfect application of the salt in it. During darkness people need light and when the switch is on, they get light but never look at the lamp but they work as it has been shining. So it is correct to say that the trees are known by the fruits they do bear. Let us come to the compassionate Lord and become absorbed in our merciful Redeemer who would never leave us alone (Gal 2:20). Once He made promise and it would remain in vogue till the end. We get changed in front of the tidal bores or natural disasters or any wrong propaganda. Since He is omniscient and search the deepest thoughts of our hearts, lets commit us with profound unshaken faith. Apostle Paul so said in the letter written to the Philippians, chapter 3 and verse 7. Let us study the
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 12
glorious Gospel carefully. Though it is the events those were happened long before our birth, but the miraculous power of our Lord is perpetual and through our lives and activities it should be materialized and projected even up to date. The present world deserves the contemporary Paul and Peters as the shining simile of appropriating salt and light to turn the chaotic society into order.

hat would be the external visible signs of righteousness? What about of talent, humility, obedience or stupidity? These are abstract qualities which do bear visible signs only through actions and behaviors of
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 14
the person called talented or righteous. A holy, just and righteous person should be admired by his behavior. Is there anyone who would be found hundred percent unblemished in the line of Adam? Of course not! Adam and Eve were driven away from the intimate fellowship of the Holy God. This world for them is a place of deportation. During the reign of the British colony here in India, Australia was treated as a place of deportation for the worst criminals. All of the worst criminals were deported at this continent. Following the deportation, the first couple was morbid and had to repent miserably. Only by the perpetual grace of God they were granted more bliss to live. Whole world is so poor, miserable and helpless unthinkably. Desperately, all of us need mercy and special grace of the compassionate God to get rid of the sinful chaotic platform called world. All the inimical trend and divisions were created by sin and antagonism. Though we all are born in the line of the same disobedient Adam, yet we are now further split away from one another and most of us do not admit even our origin, the first couple Adam and Eve. But it is fact and all of us have been searching a way out and cause of relieve in our life. The merciful Lord is not only omnipotent, just and compassionate, but also omniscient. He has been awaiting our return in realization and repentance of our futility without His presence in us. In the subject of mathematics single zero or several zeros do carry no meaning unless and until a perfect digit
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 15
stands at the left. Men are created as the representatives of God. Without God he is, as if, mere zero. But He does love us at any cost and in any situation. We can trust Him always whatever grievous situation fall on us or pass through. He has assured us to protect if we realize our stupidity and seek His asylum with repentance. We have seen His surmounting love in the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the visible picture of the invisible God. To pay off the debt to sin of the world, Jesus Christ did die on the heart rending Cross at the mount Golgotha, beyond the city walls of Jerusalem. An unblemished divine Lamb was slaughtered to expiate the sinners in the line of Adam, dead or alive, prophets of spiritual leaders; for all human being equally. Point is that they must know, understand, realize, believe and appropriate in their lives to pass through from death to life. Only by faith all must admit this sacrificial death for self. First of all we must admit that the whole world is the progeny of the fallen and deviated Adam and Eve, the first couple! Then we would realize the cause of our suffering and that is sin has been flowing into our being by the trick of the accursed Satan. Then we must admit our futility to work out our salvation, and to get saved and sanctified we must admit the special provision of the merciful God to redeem us out of His unfathomable love and grace.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 16
We also must admit that God is just and filled with love and compassion. Sin deserves punishment and the wage of sin is death. (Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.) The merciful Lord Jesus Christ was led by His divine love to die for us in exonerating the world at the cost of His life. That is the vivid example of the pinnacle of the divine love that has been pouring out towards the sinning world. (Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.) Jesus Christ has been knocking at the doors of every person that we do respond to and open up the door of our heart that He can take His seat and re-shovel our life for the glory of our Father by Him we are made to represent Him. Let us give Him thanks for providing such an easy help to get rid of the sinful world and come back to the lap of our merciful Father through His unprecedented sacrifice done out of grace. (Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.)

ll airports, all over the world were, constructed to get the same basic service, landing on and taking off the airplanes. The differences among those, so far, are found in size and facilities. People of the world are basically sinners. Just to save the skin they have introduced different outfits, helpful to hoodwink the common people. Does any cloth or outfit keep special bliss pouring into the person who does put on? Did Adam, the first man, have any special outfit to appear before God for
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 18
worship? Till today all of the couples dress them up same dress, the birthday dress, for intimate love and for procreation as per the original system! A sinner must not hate another one. Different uniform have no right to differ man from man. Just for administration ranking system has been introduced, as in case of a body that was composed with different limbs, which having their specific function. When all limbs do their precise duty, in that case the whole body becomes perfect, sound, active and strong. As for referring divine teaching let us permit quote a portion: Eph 4:4 There is one body and one Spirit-- just as you were called to one hope when you were called-- 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. EPH 4:7 but to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it. In a certain group of people there are many talented who remain busy doing their set duty happily and only an organized group brings welfare to all. Whole world is, as if, a mammoth group of people, the sagacious God has created and has been organizing it for the benefit of all, and that is His greatest satisfaction, peace and harmony among all children those were created by Him to represent to. He blessed them and till today we all are being sustained by His blessings. Heb 13:9 it says â€œDo not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings.â€? It is good for our hearts to be
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 19
strengthened by the grace, not by ceremonial foods, which are of no value to those who eat them. Let us love and respect one another and give Him thanks together as He deserves our gratitude. May God bless all, through His Son Jesus Christ, who has redeemed us at the highest cost of His unblemished blood. We were lost in sin but the Lord Jesus Christ, the divine lamb, was slaughtered to made us free from the debt to sin and Satan to glorify together our Father in heaven. JN 13:34 "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." The killers and terrorists have nothing to do with us, so long we abide in Him. Only in Him we are safe. He did die just to collect and save us, but not to accumulate money to become millionaire. We must follow Him alone!

riticism usually is bitter and unwanted but bitter guard (one kind of kitchen vegetable) is good for health. Self-criticism is much more constructive for edification and enlightenment of our own manners (2 Tim 3:16-17). Right from the deviation of Adam, the first man, all the rectification movements to alleviate them at its former and proper position, are being conducting by the sufferers tirelessly. But it is a matter of regret that all attempts, mercilessly, went in vain. It is like replacing infected blood by that of polluted ones of

another person, consequence was revealed just bad to worse. In the mean time medical group could earn two pies. Those who profess any doctrine or ideology are to be called professors and they should be given respect as teachers. The institute is also called academy. The students gain academic knowledge in the subjects they do study in. Of course education is essential. All the prophets as well as the professors have been playing vital role to educate students/people/pupil that afterward they would lead the society on to the right path to establish peace and harmony in all societies in encouraging humanity at large. Academic knowledge is the first hand knowledge towards implementation in life-changing-process. This idea could be applied in the field of religions and its application. In the glorious Gospel recorded by Apostle John chapter 15 and verse 3, Jesus Christ has emphasized on the point of application and abiding in the Words practically. It could be clarified more wide and deeply that when we submit our lives, along with all of our desires with confidence and unshaken faith, to the will of God, in that case He gives us new sense and view to behave as He does. It means abiding in Him results being changed into His likeness. A student must cover the specified course in a given time and then he is given any specific responsibility to shoulder. During his schooling he does grow and get suitable to handle the task.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 22
Those who have been converted to Christ Jesus have already been transformed into the strong, responsible dazzling lights of the world to shine all around (Mt 5: 13-14). Any candle remains intact, unless until it does get ignited. Just with ignition it starts melting away and shining up all around. So long it does not get burned or get ignited, that would be shame for it, because the effectiveness of a candle is to be burnt, melt away and shine up all around. As in case of salt, it must be dissolved into dish to make it tasteful, edible and acceptable. Instead of being academic learners should pray and deplore to our merciful Lord to be transformed into His likeness and become obedient and successful witnesses before the society that have been suffering and groping in darkness. We must not entitle people by such an identity that would differentiate them from one another. All have sinned and fallen short of God, so all are sinners, and it should be their personality until and unless they are not redeemed at the cost of the blood of our unblemished Lord Jesus Christ the unique sinless one (2 Cor 5:17).

s drinking cup and drinkable liquid is not same, so transport and passenger cannot be treated at same esteem. Cargo and vassal are completely different things. In the same way instructions and the required elements, helpful of spreading it out, are two different matters. Things which are being used as tools to spread education have got no equal dignity with the subject of education. But, due to ignorance, people mix up the elements of education with the basic educational subject.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 24
Men are created by God. At the time of creation, He gave Adam, the first man, few teachings and advices, so that he can teach those instructions to his next generation. This system may be called a transferable method. This system is still in operation in the field of movable and immovable properties. It is called the right of succession. But in the field of education, such system is not effective. For this reason, the children of poets and writers usually may not be poets or writers. To learn something, everyone has to take toil personally to learn education. Competent and well-educated teachers are required who can teach their students by direct practice and training up. In case of human being, God Himself has taken the responsibilities to give the light of knowledge and He is the greatest and wisest one, who is Almighty and full of grace. He is the Holiest above all and has created men in holiness and with free will. I prefer to focus on this matter which is used in spreading education rather than discussing on the evolution of human being. At present time, the word ‘paper’ has come from the word ‘papyruses. Papyrus is a kind of plants which is naturally wrapped of bark, in those days people used to write on those thin wrappers. In ancient Egypt barks were used for writings. Beside, on wood, brass, leather and even in our childhood, we had to arrange letters even on palm leaves. Some writings of religion were written on palm leaves, which are seen to be used at present. We need to know the usage of language before the subject matter of writings. Language is required
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 25
following the creation of substance and to herald those various elements were discovered for spreading. At present in the field of education and communication, computer is the most modern and easiest media in spreading education. I already have mentioned previously that due to ignorance people has mixed up the elements of education with the basic subject of education. The impact of such confusions does evolve in obliging people mark out some languages above others. Whereas even a single letter of some language is being kissed by the people when they see that was fallen on ground, pick it up to throw it to a large reservoir of water. This is the influence of utmost contamination of ignorance. A teacher is honorable; he is a human being, who carries the light for the welfare of the mankind. The subject of education is being used in enlightening a person by another person. However, if a book is burned, that does not mean that education is burnt off or ruined. Books are found in the market. Those are printed in the press. They are sold out in the Book-store. And people become wise reading those books. Everyone becomes benefited through applying those learned education in their lives. Compassion and brotherhood are improved up in personal life and in the society. However if a piece of inked-paper is licked up, what may happen to the society or to the life of a person, rather in that case, due to ink and paper, a chemical reaction might affect in the body. All languages which are seen and being used at present have been created by men, through research and experiment that operative at every stage until to-day. Men do always
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 26
feel inclination on experiment in making things better, smooth and easy. Because of ignorance, dishonest people take illegal advantages for their personal commercial gain. More the society remains in the darkness, more they take benefit out of it. In the field of religious and social custom, it exists to the highest level. Whatever it is written in the original book, its interpretation is made different in practice. Victims of such things cannot discover these tricks by themselves, because they lack such intellect and education, only a few, counted by finger, may have such intellect and education on it to detect. Besides, the fear of bugbear is also there, experiment is admired by few people. The greedy folks conspire to devour the whole world. And the devoted remain engaged for the welfare of the society. They spontaneously sacrifice their lives continually. So, language or words are not basic education, they do help a lot to spread education. How can I understand your thoughts in mind unless you express it openly or disclose it in writing form? Is there any role of bamboos in proposing love? The best paper which might be used to write letters in exchanging the word of mind is processed by bamboo. Sometimes, bamboo might be used as stick on the head as in proposing uneven love. God profoundly has spoken to the prophets and messengers. Sometime He inspired them, and as a result they used to lead the society in education and instruction accordingly. Men get teachings from nature; see the way of life and through of divine
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 27
instruction. The Word of God is necessary in education to raise consciousness, rectification for building honest life. Can education influence over human physical condition? Education is a subject of heart, intellect and consciousness. Similarly, whatever is understood by prayer and devotion is also matter of heart, and in no way a matter of physical work. In the name of prayer, whoever does physical work and compel to do so, they are still far from the real identity of God. In this connection, God Himself told that He is Spirit and Truth, in whom there is no iota of falsehood. He is Truth and Spirit and those who are interested to worship Him, they must pray in Spirit and Truth. So, worship is not meant by physical movement, it is a matter of mind, He, the true Spirit of God dwell in the mind or heart of a devotee. Man is a living being, full of intellect and Judgment, man is also mortal. As other living beings they have their physical needs, men also have the same demand. So, we need food, clothing, shelter, education and health for our survival. We also call them basic needs. It is good that education is also added to these basic needs. Our topic of discussion is education and the elements helpful in Spreading education. If any fraud or hypocrite comes to give wrong teaching, we must resist it. Real and fake notes are available in the market place. Fake notes are pushed by trick in place of real notes and so supplied. Does not such trick occur usually in the field of education? The society is harassed by the influence of false propaganda and misinformationâ€™s.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 28
Do you know time such misinformation was started? At first, the accursed Lucifer distracted and tempted human being showing false argument. Till to-day, wicked man gives argument to be rich overnight and greedy people who are trapped in this way become helpless and penniless. The fear of God is the beginning of knowledge. I have already written in my article â€˜Religion and wasteâ€™, a piece of cloth in not religion, a plate of food is not religion, a bundle of money is not religion, east-west, north, south, up and down is not religion and the whole universe is not religion and not holy. So, it is a great delusion, deception and hoodwinking to add a holy word before any place. In question of holiness, only God is the Holy One; whose description can not be made by human being who are already been perverted away, and any language is insufficient to expound Him perfectly. We should remember that the description of the material world which is expressed by language, that material world was created long before the creation of language. Language is only the symbol to mark a material through which the taste, smell of the matter can not be found or perceived. Are sweet mango, sweet black-berry, sweet-face, the same thing or there is a lot of difference among them, think it over. Due to limitations of word, we are compelled to express opposite meaningful matters in a single word. The system of education has been introduced for the welfare and freedom of mankind. However, as in case of fake notes were introduced, similarly, in the field of education also, ill-education and illusive education were also introduced by wicked people.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 29
These people are of-course guided and controlled by Lucifer. A simple rod of iron may become a magnet as long as electric current does flow through it. This formula can also he used in the case of human being. It means, as long as Satanâ€™s influence continues in a person, that person feels better and keeps himself busy with satanic action so long remain enchained. The conflict for which men wage war, is seen that the same problem is not, at all, solved rather the wound caused by a needle is spread out more than a sea or oceans. The act of the accursed Satan is to make the society restless. Well education eradicates unrest and turmoil from the society and ill-education creates turmoil and great illusion. We have to think anew on humanity and world civilization. In regards to human rights or religious education, all experiments come to one basic point that is the position of mankind should be above all. God has created mankind in His own image, as His own representatives. He has expressed a word of satisfaction to see mankind and called then the best of all creations. How funny it would be, if we would ignore divide instruction in loving the fellow brethren! Bombing out, and eliminate this mankind in one way and simultaneously claiming service towards the Creator, which is only the quote or word of an insane. All people are the offspring of the same Adam and they are like gems to the eyes of the Creator; do you know that, and do you follow it?
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 30
Please come on; let us serve the Lord, Almighty through rendering beneficial service to the mankind. One who cannot love his brother, who is seen, how he can have devotion or honor for the unseen Creator in his heart. The unblemished Son and Spirit of God- Jesus Christ did sacrifice His own life to make the fallen mankind free from their debt to sin. Jesus Christ is the only divine way, love and sacrifice. He is only the true way and life and the only champion for freedom to all men of the world.

hat does ‘bolt from the blue’ mean? Is it sad news of defeat from the battlefield? Is it the heartrending news of the sudden death of the husband to his now widowed wife? Or thunder and hail stones that fall without a warning from the sky?

Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 32
has received such an astonishing letter from his supporters. In the sense of human limitations, such a letter may be the cause of severe shock, but if someone discerns it in the light of the mercy and miracle working power of the living Lord, then he can breathe a sigh of relief with thankfulness. In any case we should not forget the story of the miraculous feeding of the five by our Lord with only five loves and two fishes that was merely the lunch of a small boy. That box was handed to the Lord and He blessed it and it was multiplied to feed the multitude. We must also remember the gifts and blessings in the powerful and merciful hands of the Lord Jesus Christ. Masihee Jamat is a faith organization manifesting the love and compassion of the Lord Jesus Christ to the unreached world. Through the path of serious persecutions and bitter experiences, the living Lord has raised us to this position. He has been using the Overseas Social Services to finance the works of the Lord being done here in Bangladesh. Is there anyone strong enough to stop a severe volcanic eruption? In 1981 a group of misled religious fanatics mercilessly damaged our whole project and all our activities. At that time we had fallen into a perplexing crisis but the hands of the living, loving and powerful Lord have been holding us up and continually using us to herald the message of salvation to the lost world. We donâ€™t see
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 33
anyone or anything mightier that can snatch us out of His most powerful compassionate hands. We are thankful to OSS which has been graciously providing for quite a few successive years financial support to families who are faithful to our living Lord, Jesus Christ. This has enabled us to make witnessing easy on behalf of Him here in Bangladesh. We have been praying for them, as well as for the individual donors, that our beloved Lord may enable them to invest more in the deserving fields of the Lord all over the world. This is for our dear esteemed prayer warriorâ€™s information and we would like to add that most of our brethren here in Dhaka were driven away from their relatives and fellowships leaving all their belongings behind. Conversion to Jesus Christ is in the eyes of many non-believers is an unpardonable crime and especially in the countries predominant by Muslims. In 1981 I was driven mercilessly away from our ancestral properties because of my personal faith in the truth that is in Jesus Christ. In the year 1986 Mr. Hossain was also mercilessly driven from his ancestral property because of his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. We can mention that Mr. Salam of Meherpur, Razu of Narshingdi, Enam of Gangni, Nurmohammad of Pirojpur, Wahab of Kurigram, Razzaque of Swarupkati, Habib of Barisal and Hannan of Bogra were driven from their families, friends and property.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 34
The prevailing hostile situations have compelled them to live on the allowances available by the donor agencies. There is a saying that one stitch in time saves nine. It is the right time to saturate our country with the living powerful saving message of the Lord. Most of the doors are still open at the present time. God has granted us profound and effective media to herald the Gospel to the un-reached people. The Gospel based tracts printed in our weekly news paper entitled Alor Foara (The Fountain of Light) goes to all of its readers without charge. We have open doors and opportunities to conduct seminars, workshops and all sorts of Biblical activities with believers and other inquirers every where in the country. The people of Bangladesh enjoy fundamental rights under the present Government to follow, practice and propagate their own faith without any official barriers. But the public sentiment does matter. The level of Biblical education in our society is very low. We need to mobilize believers to study the living Word of God for spiritual growth and edification. If there is a crisis and we fail to use the God given opportunities to bring Him glory we will one day give account before His Throne. At the moment we have fifty thousand inquires from many different areas of the country. We also have inquires from West Bengal, India. We must teach
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 35
them continually the living and decisive Word of God for their ongoing spiritual growth and strength. As the Apostle Peter was asked by our Lord to feed the lambs, so the same compassionate Lord has been urging us to lead, rear and feed the lambs that have fallen in financial and spiritual crisis. Though Bangladesh is a poor and developing country, yet our people are created in the image of God, the Creator of the Universe. Since our Lord Jesus Christ died for us, rose from the grave and stands by our side always defending us before the Throne of the Most High, we can easily cast upon Him all of our cares and anxieties. But speaking sincerely, despite all our worries nothing is strong enough to snatch us out of His most powerful and compassionate hands. The prevailing hostile situations have compelled some to live on the offerings available by the donor agencies. There is a saying that one stitch in time saves nine. It is the right time to saturate our country with the living and powerful saving message of the Lord. Most of the doors are still open. God has granted us profound and effective media to herald the Gospel to the unreached people. The Gospel based tracts printed in our weekly news paper is a witness to remove any doubt and to place faith in Him who saves. Give thanks to Him with us for granting His best gift, the Holy Spirit of counsel and comfort who guides us for His glory. Please also pray for us that we
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 36
might be constantly used by His powerful and merciful hands to establish His heavenly kingdom of righteousness in the hearts of our people. Dear committed and sanctified brethren in the Lord, we need your prayer and financial support. If God is speaking to your heart, please send your financial support for the suffering people of Bangladesh at the address mentioned below. We are grateful to all of those who have been supporting our ministry today. Please write to us if you want to know more about our ministry. Bangladesh is a country with a bumper harvest. So we invite you to come to Bangladesh to see the opportunities for serving the Gospel. We can assure you that if you ever come here, you will be richly blessed, encouraged and inspired by the living Lord, Jesus Christ, to join in the harvesting for His glory. May God bless you richly and forever! Thank you for your prayers and service in the vineyard of the living Lord Jesus Christ.

ho doesn't long bumper harvest in his own field? Would you find any commercial person unwilling with income in his enterprise? Every head of the family strives to organize own family as one of the distinct model! Naturally, everyone expects the best, but only a few do avail so. Those who are being deprived to attain the mark, consequently they get burnt with mental pang and suffer with agony. The burning of envy was kindled first, in the beginning, for that we are not liable at all, yet we do renew it annually to keep it fresh.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 38
Behind a bumper harvest there must be secrecy. Let us cultivate the matter. You must have a cultivable plot of land. You need to culture the ground of your land, test its fertility. Normally in fallow ground, wild thistle and shrubs are being grown naturally. When you go to cultivate it, first of all you should weed it up; plough it perfectly, so that all the obnoxious wild plants would be clean up to turn the ground good for choice farm. In most of the times weeding up could not be done hundred percent. The farmer must try his level best to keep his ground free from wild shrubs. You should choose the best seed for sowing in it. You would harvest the kind of crop you have had planted in your field, that is natural. Duly planting vegetable seed in the garden it is not wise expecting strawberry. Or how would you get good corn throwing some seed in the field that is duly covered with thistles. For example, you must sow strawberry to reap it. Proper nurture brings better harvest. If you dream of a model family, you should educate and lead your children perfectly. For commercial success, sincere and likeminded persons must be involved in partnership of enterprises. If you appoint a thief as cashier, in few days you would become bankrupt. Boat that is setting with double engines moves with double speed, when both are propelled on to same direction, but sadly to say, if two are being propelled towards opposite directions, then that would spin on hub. The same amount of fuel would be consumed during revolving on a focal
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 39
point instead of proceeding on to any destination. If you run to opposite direction on a running belt in that case you would not proceed even an inch ahead, at whatever speed you run, yet for the sake of exercise people use running best. A hundred years of banyan tree being nourished up as a show piece in a pot duly pruning up. Though that is a hundred years old yet people get deprived from its cool breeze under it. It could be likeness with the religious rites; you would find adherents and ritualism of religion but not righteousness at all, the core value of religion. The followers of the divine revelations claim that all people were created through a single man, Adam, yet they fight with and kill one another. They claim one thing and do the quite opposite. Whole humanity have had been divided by the sword of religion, whereas religion was introduced to set all captives free from the bondage of Satan. Whole world is now being tormented by irreligious activities on the plea of religion. Every day we come across many seeds, good or bad, mature or immature. We buy the best ones at the high cost, but never collect the immature ones even cost free. Cactus is good for fencing around vegetable garden, but the gardener must be alert on its out growth and expansion, that might not overlap the original plants. None sow wheat in the field duly mixed with weeds. Some of his enemy may sow terse in his field by dead of night. A careful gardener goes to the field in person to check the plants under his care and take care of it. He knows
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 40
the kind of crops he has planted in his field. Both for natural crop and spiritual crop, tender care and gardening is essential to take. In this connection we can refer an instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ given to us through Apostle Peter that is recorded in the Gospel recorded by John 21:15-17 when they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me more than these?" "Yes, Lord," he said, "you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my lambs." Again Jesus said, "Simon son of John, do you truly love me?" He answered, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Take care of my sheep." The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my sheep.

he thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John10:10
Yes, true evangelism solves all sorts of violence, ill feelings, antagonism, rivalry and hostility. Since men were originated from the same source, Adam & Eve, the first couple, so there are several avenues and opportunities to befriend with one another. Because of sin and disobedience against holy, transparent, sincere and beloved God they were driven out of the celestial place called Eden. That
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 42
means, they were cut off from the intimate constant fellowship of the righteous and pious God. God is holy, to enjoy fellowship with Him the individual must be out and out holy (John 4:24). He does urge us to come forward to Him abhorring all corruptions and vices. Here is a quotation to ponder over. 2CO 6:14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? We are the temple of the living God. God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people." 2CO 6:17 "Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you." 2CO 6:18 "I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty." 2CO 7:1 since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God. Since we are the temple of the living, powerful almighty God, our Father in heaven, who has all power in heaven and on earth, we must depend totally upon Him in every sphere of our being and activity.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 43
Let us cast our all cares upon Him and wait upon in patience and confidence. That does not mean, we would pass our time and energy idle way, rather we would strive inflexible to move along with Him by the constant guidance of the Holy Spirit on. Again and again we should ask ourselves, does it satisfy the Holy Spirit what we are performing? Does our venture help in extending the Royal Kingdom? Are we truly sincere and frank enough to one another? If not, let us come back to the miraculous Lord seeking His help for our regeneration; otherwise Lord would caste us into the lake of fire. Still we have time and opportunity to come to the merciful Lord with true repentance. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. 1John 1:9

EVERY MOVE HAS ITS GOAL

very move has its goal. If the goal is not understood or fail to fulfill, the whole process would be rendered in vein.
The goal of religious tenet is to set its followers apart from the non-religious activities. Human being has been caught sunk into the sinful world, and all of them want to get rid of these bondages. The emancipation or salvation is the sole goal of the divine plan.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 45
In the Gospel, Jesus Christ has taught that God is Spirit, and the worshipper to Him must worship in Spirit and in Truth. Selection remains in the hands of the Lord- the real owner of the harvest: It is not I but the Lord Who has loved me since my boyhood and even before. He has a concrete plan behind me and He wants to implement that plan into reality. I was born and brought up in an Islamic family, in the then East Pakistan, in the year 1946. During my boyhood, my father used to advice me to read aloud the Koran for the spiritual bliss and to fulfill religious duties. But I would always have requested him to provide me a translated copy into Bengali translation of it. During that time translated copies into my mother tongue was not available. I did not feel free to recite the Koran in foreign language without understanding its meaning. That means, the merciful Lord has been working in my sense to decipher proper way. Otherwise, through the language unknown to me do not convey message that empowers listeners to be led into the glorious and desired reconciliation back to the Father, who has all power in heaven and on earth. The merciful God has started the divine work in me, as a result, in 1976; I was set apart by Him from the then job in the Bangladesh Defense Force to serve Him all along. We all are called out to glorify Him- the redeemer: Now, I am confirmed that it is my beloved Father who has been leading me on to the glorious path to
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 46
redeem; me as well as to redeem all others, of my fellow brethren, who, out of ignorance and deception to the satanic force, have been groping in darkness. Still in the year 1976, I had been serving in the defense force, God inspired me through a vision, to commit myself hundred percent to the living Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ. In a spiritual Christian conference I confessed to the living Lord and took ritual baptism to become live witness for the living Savior. Through literature distribution I started my service for the Lord duly retired from my job in the former service. The cost of witnessing for the Lord, among the nonbelievers, either fanatic or moderate, started claiming from us. We were driven out from our relatives and the heredity of my paternal property was snatched away by my relatives. We immediately came to understand that we are created as open love letters, easily readable by the people around us, from the beloved Lord Jesus Christ, who did pay full cost, to redeem them from the power of sin and Satan. We must be delivered and exposed to them that they may read, understand, get convinced and come to the perfect knowledge and faith of redemption. We also could understand that it is not from us, but the living Lord, who has been using us all, in performing the great and small things, to save the lost people, all around of us. We are richly blessed people, being used in His divine directives and schedules for the glory of our Father in heaven.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 47
We are thankful to you all who have been praying for us and for Bangladesh to keep all the activities, though some of them are now become dormant for the shortage of fund, in motion that many more people would get to know and understand the glorious Gospel that has been kept the door of salvation wide open for the lost repentant sinners and only by faith in the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ. Media and materials to herald the Message: We need to renovate those materials, very popular and effective, to herald the Message to our people. Thanks are to be the Lord, who has been preparing the hearts of the people receptive and sober to the message of hope and assurance towards the reconciliation to the Father in heaven. God is love, and our Lord Jesus Christ has proved so, being remained hundred percent obedient to the will of His Father, even at the supreme cost of His own unblemished Blood, on to the heartrending cross, to expiate the world. He made an example of obedience to materialize the plan of salvation of the lost. We have been in the vineyard instead of severe persecution and hindrances by the leading of the Holy Spirit constantly. Now we have been enjoying the real receptivity at the end of our listeners of the Gospel. We must present in such a way that they may have access into it. We have been striving hard since 1976 to pour out the real meaning and purpose of the Message through the own loved language of the listeners. Thanks are to
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 48
be the Lord; the Bangladesh Bible Society has already translated the whole Holy Bible into the loved language of the vast majority of the people of Bangladesh. (Dimensions of the opportunities still prevail in our country for greater evangelism mainly among the vast dominating group of our people, those are as follows: 01. Follow-up Ministries, 02. Literature Ministries, 03. Gospel Message and songs in Islamic style, 04. Bible study classes, 05. Bible correspondence course, 06. House to house evangelism, 07. Open air meetings, 08. Convention and seminar, 09. Equip the converts bearing witness for the Lord, 10. Preparing churches to receive and adjust converts amidst the Church fellowship as bosom brethren, 11. Reading room, 12. Friendship meetings 13. Training for services, 14. Team evangelism, 15. Old age help 16. Printing and publishing We do conduct a primary school with more three hundred fifty kids. These children are from the neighboring families. We frequently invite the parents to share to and discuss with them for awareness growth of the parents. We also had job-training schemes for the believers and their children to get sustenance for survival: These are poultry project, Fishery project, Carpentry project, Nursery project, Sanitary works, and Blind care, sewing project and computer project for the persecuted believing families.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 49
Should have legitimate authority and permission: At the end of the governmental authority there is no ban of any activities on any religion in Bangladesh. Some hindrances, so far were sounded, was from the fanatic militant people, but those are not, so much, hard or strong to thwart our evangelical movement. Praise is to the Lord, we are registered body to publish our magazine to saturate the country with the Gospel materials. Masses of the readers love it and encourage it to continue. I write on thought provoking points that the society gets fresh insight in the religious activities. For example, I can cite an article that has discussed on Truth and fallacies in the prevailing religious education. I put the matter in front of the people that, a piece of cloth in not religion, neither a plate of food, not a bundle of currency not any plot of land is holy nor sacred. In a sense, the world itself is not the source of righteousness or holiness of purgatory to be slaughtered to expiate the debt to sin. It is God who is holy and the son of God, Jesus Christ is holy and capable to expiate the sin of the world, and He did so at the heartrending cross to exonerate the sin of the world. This article inspired the readersâ€™ fresh look on to the truth and reality of God that Jesus has taught that God is Spirit, and those who wants to worship Him must worship in the Spirit and Truth. The people of other faith have mingled the earthly things and power with the spiritual beings. They cannot think God or reality of God without the earthly possession. So to establish Islam political
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 50
and muscular power is must. They do not know the divine kingship and it is impossible for them to understand the spiritual things unless and until the invocation of the Spirit is anointed. We are very thankful and grateful to you all, as you have been pouring out your prayer, means and fund to make our every move in the vineyard possible for the glory of our Father in heaven. We would cordially welcome you to step in our country and the vineyards and bless and encourage us that with your moral and practical support and courage we can move on happily for His glory. Ultimately, we all are the children of our God born through the same Adam, the first man in the world. WE are lost but have the same way out to enjoy eternal peace, happiness, forgiveness and reconciliation back to the Father in heaven through the sacrificial death of our Lord & redeemer JC. We love and respect you as our esteemed donors and supporters to make our move reality for His glory. May God bless you richly for His glory. In the M J Power has project the different dimension and avenues of our move to saturate our country with the glorious Gospel.

FAITH THAT MATTERS

n the point of righteousness, how should we figure it out, who is righteous or what things, visible or invisible, are the cause of purity or virtue?
None should count or esteem the earth itself or its products are the cause of the divine virtue. It is being created by the Lord Almighty, who is wise, holy, beloved and the source of all divine character. He is Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent. Now the point stands as how to become holy and righteous, as desired by our beloved Creator. He demands us to become holy as He is holy. The
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 52
altitude of our holiness should be lofty as that of our Father who is in heaven. How that is possible for a sinning person sunk into the ocean of filthy things. How a man, already sunk into polluted ocean, would drink pure water? While swimming in the atmosphere that is full of pollution that is mixed with different gases, how to inhale pure oxygen. The sagacious God did set up a system of purifying appliance in the chest to filter out other unwanted things, in the air, and allow the pure oxygen work in the body, that is naturally built in. Have you marked train line how one engine does pull 40/50 compartments easily? All passengers are seated in the compartments those have no engine itself. When those are hooked with the engine, in that case they move with the engine at the same speed with the engine. When any sinner does, by faith, abide in the holy and righteous Lord and does commit himself hundred percent upon Him, he becomes a new creation, by the power of God. Do you have sincere and real trust in the power and love of God? Nothing is impossible for Him! In the light of the revealed revelations, the story of Adam and Eve, it is so clear that they did turn from the righteous and pious God, being allured by the accursed Satan, to the wicked way contrary to that of the righteous path of God. That tendency is still being carried by every person, generation after generation. A tree can produce better fruit as and when that could be grafted with better kind. Man must be transformed into the likeness of God duly
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 53
being abiding or grafted into the divine sinless person, Jesus Christ. We must keep in mind that only Jesus Christ is the holy person, the invincible Word of God that took the human form through the Virgin Mary. A few people may fall into controversy on this point, but the people of books would never argue against this dazzling fact. He is the clear help and projection of the divinity into human bondage. It is recorded in the divine inspired book that all have sinned and fallen apart from the point of righteousness (Romans 3:23). The merciful God, the Father of the human being, the Creator of the visible and invisible, felt compassion on the sinking men groping in the mire of sin. He could easily foresee the total failure and inability in them to rescue and save themselves. Once they lost and lost for all! No hope in themselves. Moreover, they were turned into helpless victims of the frauds that allured them falsely to the way to freedom, from the den of sin, into the light and virtue. But they themselves are equally polluted and have been groping in darkness. God is love. He is light and peace that world doesnâ€™t understand or perceive it. All of the way they have passed through the tunnel, that is bottomless darkness. Cain and Abel were passed through the perpetual tunnel and they also breaded their offspringâ€™s through the same process, and that is the normal channel to procreate living being. From man to woman, from male to female, the biological seed passes through, get enlarged and come into the world to complete the same cycle they are
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 54
destined for. God has empowered the male, to produce in its kind, using the womb of woman. The miraculous God can create, even out of nothing, anything He desires to. He created Adam, the first man by dust of the ground, and then He formed Eve by the bones of Adam. They were blessed and empowered to procreate the same kind being copulating with each other. The merciful God, the Father of the believers, asked all to follow Him, the only righteous, perfect and beloved One. He does forgive all the repentant sinners, when they get to understand their stupidity, futility, failure and inability to follow the right path. So, the Lord Jesus Christ has declared that repentance is the vital attitude and action for the sinners to enter into the Kingdom of God, Jesus Christ the divine Son of God, who alone is the way, the truth and the life. Only through Him we have the way out and He alone has redeemed us at the cost of His own life and unblemished blood. Do you believe these divine statements that had candidly been materialized in the life, works and teachings of the sinless divine person, Jesus Christ? Please study Him intently. The teachings, life and works of Jesus Christ would amaze you to applaud Him and rank Him above all the so called righteous of the world. The human body not at all, is the cause of righteousness, neither the earth nor its product, is the causeâ€™s righteousness to add in
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 55
the divine account that is being controlled by the Lord himself. All must come to the divine provision of grace, mercy, forgiveness and reconciliation in Jesus Christ, to get regenerated for being merged into the divine Holy Spirit to live eternally. All these things are the subject to faith, and hundred percent faiths in the divine Word of God. Abraham, Daniel, Moses, Joshua, are the pillars of faith. We need people of faith even today. The love and power of the merciful compassionate God is not yet diminished but our faith has become dim. Desperately we need Jesus Christ to strengthen us with His Holy Spirit to move on through all even and uneven ways.

ertain man had been hawking in the street with a sheet of A-4 size paper asking people to write sown a word compiled with 4 letters. Only 4 letters would turn it into ashes. People of the eastern countries are always curious to see and challenge something new. In a minute a mob were gathered around that man. He asked them to write down FIRE on that sheet of paper. He also added to draw dazzling fire on that sheet. Out of fun some young had had written and draw picture of fire. Yet more space was left and still he had been calling the onlookers to write or draw FIRE in it.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 57
Then he gave some meaningful hints on fire that fire warms up and burns something to ashes if it goes beyond control. Then he asked permission to write FIRE by his special pen on that sheet of paper. People were happy and in a voice applauded him to write FIRE with his special instrument. Giving them thanks he pulled a match-lighter out of his bag. Then he handed the sheet over to an onlooker asking him hold up that he might use his special instrument to ignite it on. He just touched the sheet with the flaming fire. The secrecy was revealed that fire has no burning power so long it is confined in written form. Fire must be released in its own action freely. Jesus Christ so asked His disciples to implement all the teachings in their practical lives (John 15:1-5) Jesus Christ is the living Spirit of God that abiding in him and he in the believers signifies power when He does abide in the believers. A live wire means power does passing through it and dead wire means that wire has been taken away from the power generator. When a believer does shrink him away from the living Lord, the Holy Spirit, he immediately turned into dead and dead has no responsibility to do or feel anything. Whole world is dead and cut off from the true live perpetual vine. They have no light or life in themselves. They have been groping in darkness seeking and searching light and life. But light and life comes from above, from the source of life, the
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 58
Supreme Creator, divine Father. In the initial stage of creating mankind, He did form a man out of clay. It was inert, as no life giving spirit was inspired in it. Then the Lord breathed into it and immediately he became living being! God named him Adam. Without that divine breathing all men are mere dead. A believer is practically bearer of the Holy Spirit and so long he does bear that Special Spirit that is Jesus Christ, he is very much powerful, wise, compassionate and capable to produce all the nine finest fruits of the Holy Spirit. Do you know what those fruit are? Please read Galatians. â€œBut the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. (Galatians 5:22-24).

hy does one remain afraid of another? That should be unthinkable. All men were born of a single man, Adam, who was created in the image of the beloved God. All men are related as brothers, both man and woman. When I asked such a question, my friends laughed at me and said that my measuring tape is not long enough to measure the surface of the ocean even. They mocked me. It is not possible to bring all of scattered humanity to the Lord. I sincerely respect my friends and at same time one verse from the Holy Bible causes me ponder over! Do you want to know that verse? It is Isaiah 66:18, “And I, because of their actions and their imaginations, am about to come and gather all nations and tongues, and they will come and see my glory.”
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 60
Yes dear reader, it is the Omnipotent God who has all power, in heaven and on earth, to do all the things that we cannot even imagine of. Since life is so short and we are confined to such a tiny place, we cannot imagine all the earthly as well as the heavenly things. Sometimes, when I want to write something about practical matters, immediately someone asks me for my authority to write about all these things. Yes, could I ask a pen or pencil to write even a single line? Never! We look for the experienced writer to write down a line for us. A writer is authorized to write down, but never the very pen itself, he does use. The author and finisher of this world is the Supreme God, Creator of heaven and earth and all that do exist. Though only few do admit so, it does not matter. They must not be confused in observing the double standards of perverted human beings. The whole country is eaten up by corruption. Every nook and corner of it has been polluted. You cannot trust anyone. You would not find any part of the society that has not been contaminated by the corruption. For confirmation, we can ask the "Anti-corruption Department" of the Govt. to reveal the reasoning of our claim. It is man who is corrupted and contaminated by sin and arrogance. The first man, Adam, was created perfect but he listened to the offer of Satan rather than the commandment of the Holy God. I need not give an explanation of corruption. The whole world is corrupted and falls short of the glory of God
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 61
(Romans 3:23). For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God! Isaiah 64:6 says “all of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away.” Isaiah 64:7 says, “No one calls on your name or strives to lay hold of you; for you have hidden your face from us and made us waste away because of our sins.” Let us taste a glass of orange juice to find out how it could tastes. It only takes a couple of oranges to see how it works. We peal it and find some inner slices and further that many small capsules have preserved the juice for future enjoyment. It was essential while it was in its formation but when that has ripened, it is served full of vitamin ‘C’ for use of men. So the outer peal must be removed to release the most desired juice. All things were made by God for the benefit of human beings who were created to represent honorifically the Almighty God. Sometimes I become astonished to observe the attitude of men as in the case of evangelical works they stop cooperating and the consequence is abandoned souls. The work of evangelism, in every case, should never be hindered or abandoned.

s there any worthless chap who would happily get ready to wage war against any alphabet or collective of alphabets?
My point would be much clearer if I am permitted to set the point with examples! ‘A to Z’ are the total alphabets in English language. English is international language, so let me explain my idea through it. Let us choose four alphabets out of 26. L, O, V, E, and if I request you to frame some meaningful words out of these four letters, you may quickly do as per your knowledge goes. Please let me make some; “Lost Venture Engulf One” “Lust Vanishes
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 63
One’s Eternity” “Valuable Eating Opens Longevity” “LOVE” “VOLE” among these words only one is living animal that is ‘vole’ an animal like rat. So it is clear that none does arm him to fight out any alphabet or group of alphabets. But if any terrorist, does arm and take preparation to destroy all the beneficial things of the nations and does further take all the detrimental steps underground, behind any popular slogans, in that case state power must come forward, looking into all their hidden subversive policies, detecting and pulling out all the obnoxious traces from the face of the country. It is the sole responsibility of any welfare state. We must take it for certain that human being is not any factor causing good or bad, but the power and trend that do possess and lead them on is decisive. In this world two opposite forces are active, as light and darkness. All people have admitted but not accredited at all. One is the Holy Spirit, the very creative Spirit of God and the other is the Devil Spirit, Satanic spirit, the real cause of all inhuman atrocious activities in the history of mankind. This Satanic spirit is also powerful, but never has unending power over that of God. Jesus Christ, the visible picture of the invisible God, has finally defeated the satanic power forever. Question may come at the end of the suffering people in the hands of the Satan. As in case of the people have been confined in the prison may ask so many points. I know that every question has its proper answer and most of the sufferers, more or less, do know almost better cause of their sufferings. Once it is defeated forever, how come, it does still doing all the
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 64
detrimental activities in the society? Yes, the accursed Satan has ferocious power to destroy a man who has been thinking, he is safe and protected within its tiny limited power. But, once one has taken refuge under the living Lord Jesus Christ and does abide in Him by faith, he would need not to be worried or broke. Believers and non-believers both live in the same world. Both of them face the same climate, same oxygen, same food same sun moon, but one has perfect medicament to take in, and other has no such system to apply to. A believers is asked to cast all his cares anxieties to his risen Lord who has been ever present with him, and harboring him, but all other goddess are dead, null and void. (1 Peter 5:7). Being sanctified believers in the risen Lord Jesus Christ, and duly cleansed constantly, persistently we wage war against all the principalities and conspiracies against the accursed Satan, but not against any human flesh and blood, rather to save them. Our Lord Jesus Christ did die to vindicate the sin of the world that all of them might get rid of the tricks of the accursed Satan. Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 65
spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. EPH 6:10

2 Tim 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 1 cor 15:22 For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. LK 14:23 "Then the master told his servant, `Go out to the roads and country lanes and make them come in, so that my house will be full. 24 I tell you, not one of those men who were invited will get a taste of my banquet.' " God made human body as His resting place, His own holy abode, and His thrown. The man became a living being by the breath of God. It is God who alone is the source of life. He is also the basis of light and all the divine qualities to make all things alive; as the moon and stars receives lights from the Sun so all prophets and religious elites were inspired and empowered by the merciful God. God is light and life of man. Candles were made as candle light and to be so it must be ignited. Human being must gladly receive Lord the Holy Spirit to become transformed into the celestial light (Mt 5:14). Human body was enlivened by the breath of the Omnipotent Lord. The divine task of transformation has been continued as promised since the Day of the Pentecost. The timid disciples of our Lord Jesus
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 68
Christ were magically transformed into the authorized teachers to point out the lead the global people on to the Truth and Reconciliation with the Father. Whole humanity in Adam, were with the Father but sad to say because of following the cunning policy of the accursed Satan they were driven away. The real story of the human body is really peculiar. All the statues made by the potters should be compared with the human being in the hands of the Lord. God did also make a statue, the body of Adam. Have you seen lifeless body ever? Before breathing into it that statue (Adam) was outwardly of robust structure but practically lifeless and meaningless earthen body. Life, talent, love and wisdom were not yet poured in it as yet. In this world there were very strong, wise and talented men who had been surviving during the ages but all of them are dead. A dead person has no power to add or to deduct anything, either spiritual or material, to others. We must have real contact to the living One, the source of all divinity. Jesus Christ came to this fallen world to breathe the life, light and divinity into all whom, by faith, comes to Him. He did breath into the disciples resulting all of them were transformed, encouraged and empowered to speak out before the world who have been confused and groping in the spiritual darkness.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 69
Only one single line through which all human being were born. That is the line of the fallen Adam. In the line of Adam all are fallen and have lost the glory of God. All the heroes or talented elites once did shine the then world but now they have already put off and can no more lead the nations. We need a living force to keep the society alive unto the mark that is eternity! Only God is the ever shining light and those who have been alleviated unto Him, through the Lord Jesus Christ, are also juvenile and remain ever fresh by His grace, ongoing blessings and leading on. We must have a living fellowship with the living Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ. He alone is the visible picture of the invisible God. He is the divine Lamb who was sent to die, in place of the lost humanity. You can remember two different stories those have taken place in the history; one in providing lamb in place of Isaac to be slaughtered and another case was providing skin of lamb in heaven to cover up the shame of nakedness of Adam and Eve, following their first sin of disobedience against the instruction of the merciful God. Jesus Christ is the unique unblemished Lamb who was born as human being to die for exonerating our debt to sin. All are sinners. None in the line of Adam is free from sin. How long should we pursue dead in longing our sinfree regenerated life? Those who are in Christ Jesus have been transformed into a new life, by the
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 70
power of the omnipotent Father, the Creator of the universe. As the sun shines the world so His living Son, Jesus Christ, shines all over the world. We must receive the fire to be ignited and become the light of the world to shine all along. Though candles are made to be ignited to shine all around and to disperse darkness, but it must receive fire and be ready to be exhausted and melting away being burnt till the end. In the concluding word we do stand on the point of our living perpetual Lord Jesus Christ who is our Lord and Savior, who did shed His unblemished blood to expiate the world. He alone is the righteous person to transform us righteous and new creations. We must worship Him in the Spirit and in the Truth. LK 14:25 large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: 26 "If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters--yes, even his own life--he cannot be my disciple. 27 And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.

hen we want to know someone we naturally start with asking so many questions like his name, name of his father, how far did he studied and his profession etc., but are these enough to reveal out his real position of his mentality and goal of his life he did chalked out? I already explained that “NAME” itself has no real justification, as N for No, A for actual, M for meaning and E for exists. To get acquainted with someone we should associate with him. In the beginning we
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 72
should start with love, fellowship and affinity. We must not disturb his mental faculty influencing by some unknown manners. It is not the label but the character that does lead a man. There is a guide line to identify people in the living Word of the living God. MT 7:15 "Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? 17 Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Our country is eaten out by corruption as white ants consume any wooden furniture and clothing from within and its reaction is not seen at outside. White ants eat all possible parts of the wooden furniture, so corruption has reached every wing of our social structures. When teachers get polluted naturally the students were taught so. At the time of appointment in any department starting point is started with bribe, extra money that means the new employee are asked to follow to move accordingly. Our total infra structure were made on fallacy, even religious standpoint has been based on flexible man-made imaginary points, and those things are
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 73
being enforced and thrust upon the society superfluously, the eventual result must come just mess. Just one example: any language is not righteousness or wisdom or mental faculty, rather it is mere container. First of all we must learn wisdom and the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Let us get acquainted with the real merciful God; the essence of Him is Love. We must love Him with all our being and love our fellow human being those were created in the image of God. Let us learn new language that is LOVE and be filled with it. Love is the fulfillment of law!

MARK OF SIN
Image: People with scrupulosity fear retribution for potentially doing the wrong thing. Source/ÂŠ Elizabeth Landau, CNN, www.edition.cnn.com
ow to identify all the marks of sin man do carry? In this question quickly we quote chapter 5 and verses 19 to 21from the letter of Paul written to the Galatians. Is it enough to mark someone that he is belonging to that group and another is belonging to the other group? At least officially these marks we have taken for hammering at any person. Practically, it might be one of the total marks or emblems. There are more. Let us return to the point where sin had had occurred for first time. Was there any eye witness of that sinful event? Judges naturally do summon trustworthily witness and reliable document to prove guilt of the accused. It is declared long after that all have sinned and fallen short of God, and it is so (Romans: 3:23). Which one comes first for
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 75
argument, is it offender or the witness? Of course wrongdoer! The holy and merciful God did create a single man in His own image, purpose is to represent Him through that person. Do you admit so? If yes, let us then continue discuss and diagnose into all the developments so far have taken place till now. He was deviated. He was driven out of the holy place. Immediately he did realize the consequence of his disobedience and fall. The impact was worse in their lives. His children started fighting for the mere earthly matters. Antagonism was so serious that one of his sons had killed his uterine brother. Definitely relation and identity were broken apart. The killer left the place and did hide him to escape. Whole plane was broken into innumerable pieces. The family of Adam were scattered into far. It is like a glass ware that was fallen on the floor and resulting all the broken pieces were lost far and near. God made man, one single family. Because of sin and to prefer the council of the accursed Satan they did bring curse upon them. They should realize their crime and its effect and also they should ask the sagacious God to offer best solution to this entire massacre. All have sinned and deviated and lost. The possibility to reconcile all of the disputant parties, back to the holy God, and build up a fraternal unity among them was totally beyond the wisdom and capacity of the fallen human being. It is
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 76
impossible for man to do so, but very easy for the Almighty God. At the time of their fall, the merciful God did arrange a lamb skin to cover their, Adam and Eve, sin and shame. It is God who has done it and man should by faith humbly and sincerely accept the free gift for getting rid of the sinful states. When we cordially and happily accept this divine redemptive provision that was done graciously for us and become sanctified, in that case, we have only one identity and that is sanctified sinners. While we have been groping in darkness we have lot of individual marks other than the divine one, ‘born-again’. Now let us consider all these numerous emblems during our living in sin and darkness in one word that should be called ‘sinner’. And after sanctification in Christ Jesus was given one identity that is ‘sanctified sinners’. Why should we remain happy bearing all those marks even after our redemption wrought at the cost of our Lord and Redeemer, the divine Lamb Jesus Christ? While we were mere child, naturally we did lot of things, for those activities we feel shy now. When some one remembers those events we become sorry and we never do it again. But if we like to do such silly things should we be happy if some one does introduce us as well. The merciful God made us His representatives, but we were lost, resulting lost our feelings and even integrity & identity. Out of grace of our Lord we were
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 77
given back that position and the title and same unique title for all that â€˜born-againâ€™ in Christ. In this new holy identity do you see any room to claim that: American, Canadian, German, Indian, African, Catholic, Protestant, Lutheran, Anglican, Pentecostal etc? Did not all have to be sanctified at the unblemished blood of our Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ? They must be one in the grace of the Lord, should be thankful and satisfied with single identity at least for the sake of spiritual question. If any one does abide in Christ he is a new creation and his old things, that is, nature, morality, attitude and mentality must be changed. He must be gotten rid of the old things to be transformed into His, Jesus Christ, likeness that is done by the power of the merciful God. (1 Corinthians: 12:7-11) So, those who are in Christ all of them is given one identity, divine honorific identity that is Christians, the resurrected person, children of God and salt and light of the world to shine the rest of it. They must not fight, ignore, condemn, demoralize & speak lie against each other. If such things are seen to happen that means part of their life has not yet been consumed by the Holy Spirit or completely were transformed into His likeness as yet. In this case nothing we have to loose our hope, they are on the process towards the goal. How long they would grope in darkness. Satan does only allure just to steal, kill and destroy. The final role of the accursed Satan is total destruction of its possessed. But, thanks are to the Father, out of mercy and love He sent His Son Jesus Christ to shed His
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 78
unblemished blood to expiate us from the debt to sin and make us free from the age-long bondage to Satan. We can fight each other but being bornagain we must reconcile immediately before the sunset. We are given new character that is love and forgiveness. Let us franchise it perfectly. While we do use this gift, the living Lord does rush to us enhancing and empowering to do much more assignments! He knows our feeble position. We are, as if, some zeros, worthless unless and until the perfect one doesnâ€™t stand at our side. In case of boat must play in water, the boatman should be alert as through its any loop water may come into it to sink down. We are granted a garden, our hearts, if we ask Him, the best gardener to cultivate it, He would be happy to cultivate and produce the entire desired flora as those fruits of the Holy Spirit. A barren garden or that filled with thorns has less value than those gardens full of desired flower and vegetations. Are you sanguine of that does God love you always? While we were sinners, our Redeemer did die shedding His unblemished blood to make us free from sin and all darts, those had tarnished us, but the unblemished blood of our Lord did transform us into new creations. We need to grow out into maturity. Please go through carefully and applicably the divine love-letter written to us at the highest cost. In one word that letter is called glorious

Gospel that was wrought by the cost of the unblemished life of the Lord Jesus Christ.

r. Surveyor, are you in a sound mind? Do you really desire to solve the disputes between and among the hostile parties of this world? Sincerely do you love all people as does our compassionate Lord does? I know that you have all the instruments to make a good measurement and find out all the demarcation lines according to the entitlement of heirs of the land. All the children have heredity. No one should be deprived of from its right and possession. Only they need to establish peace and integrity among them. They must recognize their origin and affinity to admit and love one another. In a moment, all the
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 81
disputes would be withered away when they would begin loving one another. Love is the best solution to all ill feelings! Mr. Surveyor, Where is the registered pillar located to begin measurement with? Please come to that point. Let us start surveying from that original point (Genesis: 1:26) as per the share (heredity) of each one and help them live in peace. It is true that all desire peace and according to their declaration they do fight to establish only peaceful atmosphere here in this earth. The sagacious God did pour out all the divine qualifications in Adam, the first man. He was deviated from the very peaceful place and intimate presence of God. He started doubting and evading Him because of his violation of the divine love. He did prefer the council of Satan better and reasonable than that of the Omnipotent God who alone does sustain the whole creation. Since they started following the accursed enemy both of God and man, he must suffer its consequence. The present combating world is the output of the disobedience of Adam and all the humanity. It is shame; the children fight each other, kill one another and destroy themselves through! Though the whole world is the progeny of Adam, there is none bustard or illicit. All were born in the line of Adam following the same system; the wise Lord did set in them. None could alternate it as yet. Following the fall of Adam, all children, male or
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 82
female, have their father and mother. Some marriage is done observing wide known ceremony and some were done secretly. The main condition is copulation among male and female for procreating a child. We can ask the combating people to tell us the root cause of their enmity. The simple, sincere and reasonable answer would come that they were misled and deceived by the Satan. He has started alluring and urging them to fight out for establishing greater peace in this earth. They all quickly forget the love of the Great Father Who has all power in heaven and on earth. They never did look unto Him who alone is the best solution to all disputes. He has been waiting always to welcome all the prodigalsâ€™ sons if they repent and comeback to Him, the divine Father. He has been urging us to consider our present situation and compare the whispering of the accursed Satan with that of our compassionate Father. He has always been urging us to reason together and come back to Him in repentance and humility. His love and patience never ends up, always enduring! Anyone in any situation can easily trust Him. Those who come to Him by faith He would never deny him and none in this world in a position to snatch him out of Him ever mighty hands. Let us know one another relate and love each other as we all are the blessed children of our Father through the line of Adam. We are not divided as we see existing divisions among humanity in this world.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 83
All Factions, so far are professed, were totally based on fallacy, mere lies and deceptions. Does climate claim human being is its procreation? Geographical divisions have any role to produce any issue? We all are the blessed children of God. We must love Him with all our heart and with all our soul and with our mind and love our neighbor as ourselves. (Mt 22:37). If we love them afresh, renew our relation again, I am sanguine, all the existing disputes, so far are seen in this world, would be vanished in a twinkling of an eye. Let us flatly deny all the illusions, superstitions, divisions, antagonism and welcome one another as the bosom brothers and sister to become One, as mighty waterfall, for the glory of our Father in heaven. To reconcile and place back us in the bosom of our divine Father, our Lord, and the Lamb of God did pay the debt to sin of the world at the supreme cost of his unblemished blood. Only through Him our Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ we have access to our Father. He is always ready to make us holy and regenerate suitable enough to abide in Him as well as enjoy the divine fellowship of our Holy Father. Let Him renew us, our love, matrimonial relations, social relations and responsibility and become obedient and blessed children for His glory. (2 Corinthians. 5:17)

remendous stormy wind is blowing, trees & greens are swinging in a dancing mood, but the tremor is not coming down below waist. It looks very interesting. Silent bush is stirred with Baisakhi (seasoal) songs. This is the time of kal Baishakhi (Monsoon storm) storm. After the storm, there is a different type of interest of
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 85
collecting mangos in the (mango) garden, but the measure of that interest difference of age to age. A hunchbacked old man has reached under the mango tree, not only came but in a harsh voice rebuked the children who were busy collecting mangos. The joy of collecting of scattered mangos is ceased by the loud voice of the old man and the children fled away wherever direction they could ran away. The crowded garden was emptied in a moment. The speed of the storm is completely ceased by this time, after roaring sound and shedding tears the storm was vanished. The mangos which were fallen on the garden all were very tender, those were suitable neither for ripen nor fit to cooking, and at best those could be sliced and dried up for pickle. The old hunchbacked called his servants in a loud voice to gather all the fallen mangos in the garden. As he ordered, the servants started to gather. I have nothing to say about mango, but the vision is still at my sight. The mangos of the same tree were bearing in different branches; all are grown up on a same trunk. Yet the little mangos are lost premature through fighting each other being tossed by the storm. They could have grown up to maturity to preserve their own species and also could give an opportunity to the human society satisfy them with its sweet juice. Only a stormy wind had created a catastrophe among them and destroyed.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 86
The stormy wind and the go of the day have bewildered us. It was started through fratricidal enmity from the primitive age that is from the Garden of Eden. If we go for searching the root of humanity and the infectivity of sin in them, the subject will be clear to us. It is fratricidal enmity caused by sin. Greed and mean selfish interest has made us blind. Divisions of this age are created undoubtedly by mankind themselves. The Almighty God has created man in his own image and only one person in the beginning. We are the descendants of that first man. We do not need to argue about the contribution of God, if we completely depend on Him, then He has the power to meet our entire demands easily. However, we need a clear perception and a fair mind to understand all these things. According to the description in the divine revelation, the Garden of Eden was a suitable house of Adam, an excellent creation and he that is the great Creator was too pleased to see it. If you hand over a brand new car to an unskilled person, the next day you would see that it is a mass. A great conflict was seen in Adam’s two natures; his divine nature and his fallen nature into sin, as he who was possessed by the accursed Devil. So, God asked Adam, about his position that implies where have had been fallen? Dear brother, if you and I ask such a question to each other, will it be so absurd? Please mind it. “Human beings have become inhuman”, in this comment it is meant that they
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 87
became equal to inferior animal being. Yet men is called “the supreme creation”, it means, best of all living being. What remains of greatness is found at last? Is there any symptom of love or compassion found among them at all? All are self-centered. As, it is impossible to guess the lovely shape of a mango through the sight of sliced and dried mango, so, to-day it is impossible to guess about the first man that was created in the image of God. Only after having seen man God said “The best of all.” We need to go in search of the root of the human race. According to the divine testimony, we are created as the representatives of the merciful sagacious God. But alas we are fallen from that dignified position! The Holy Sprit has come down as human being from the merciful God to rouse our consciousness. Though He was revealed as human form but not born of Adam. He is absolutely sinless, who claimed that whoever has seen Him, he has gotten the opportunity to see the apparent glory of God. His name is Jesus Christ, a unique human being who is absolutely sinless. He is the only person who has been able to build up a bridge of love & brotherhood among and between mankind and the divine Father at the cost of his own holy life. It is truly speaking that everyone is fallen. They have lost the glory of God. Even the right of His representation has been ceased because sins of men. So, Jesus Christ has come down from heaven to save the helpless men, to bring them back to the
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 88
heaven. He has not come to blame anyone; rather he exposed divine love to us while we were still sinners. No more we should be bewildered in the stormy wind. We have received an opportunity to swim in the ocean of love in Jesus Christ. Through the unlimited grace of God that has been possible for us to be sanctified and clean white. Everything has been possible only by faith through the grace of God, as prophet Abraham became the friend of God through the faith alone. Dear friend, let me ask you a point, is there any similarity or dissimilarity, in any way, to you with Prophet Abraham? Just wait and think. As, you are a son of Adam so do Prophet Abraham was. He was in the sight of God and you are also in His sight. He responded to the call of God, eventually becomes one among the chosen men. There is also a possibility for you to be chosen by Him only that depends on your faith. To save the lost humanity, all the required arrangements done by God is still effective till to-day and it will remain so powerful till the last day of the Judgment. In the divine revelation it is exactly described, 1. “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn form their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land”, 2. God also said, “Come now, let us reason together,” says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be live wool.” 3. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 89
we are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom God the world through its wisdom did not know him. God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those who God has called, both Jews and Greeks Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength. 4. “I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes; first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For in the Gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written” The righteous will live by faith” 5. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, the old has gone, and the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. That God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 90
appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf. Be reconciled to God. God made him who bad no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 6. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your won understanding. At last I would like to throw my opinion & comments concerning the question about legal & Illegal to the crowd, that is unconditional forgiveness is “legal,” and unable to forgive is “Illegal”. Is there anyone who came from Adam and has not committed sin and could remain sinless? All sinners are regenerated due to forgiveness and grace of God. Man can walk and talk because he has been forgiven. The divine forgiveness is the final religion. Forgiveness ought to be unconditional. The merciful God forgives us. When we sincerely confess our sins to him and ask his blessings, He is very kind and instantly forgives us. He does not make any complain. He is righteous, just, and the ocean of love that has been revealed plainly to us through Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is Holy, the highest excellence of grace & sacrifice; who has had atoned the sins of mankind at the cost of his own life. Because, nothing is left in our hands to give ransom for our sins, so the Lord Jesus Christ did sacrifice His unblemished life on the cross to make us sanctify by grace. It has been possible for us to survive by the grace of God alone. The righteous does live by faith. It is not possible to satisfy God, at all, without faith. When the Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ abides in us, just then we can forgive
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 91
others and do understand that God has forgiven our limitless of sin & quilt. We all have been spared by His unconditional forgiveness, so, it would be our moral responsibility to forgive our debtors unconditionally. But the moral courage, mental strength and Spiritual inspiration, to forgive someone comes just when the Holy Spirit abides in your heart. You have to be controlled and consumed by the Holy Spirit that means, through the Spirit of God. Anyone may live a holy life even living in an evil world, when he is totally controlled by the Holy Spirit, as the presence of light is possible in complete darkness when electricity is at work. Can you see electric current? What do you see is its influence or its reflection? It is also not possible to see the Holy Spirit with your carnal eyes, whatever is seen is the change in personal attitude and life which is done due to the control of the Holy Spirit. It is already stated that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself is the Holy Spirit who came in human form. For this reason he is called the Spirit of God. As a faithful person, do you have any plea and moral courage to neglect and abhor Jesus Christ? To avoid Jesus Christ means to take suicidal step. The extreme love, forgiveness, graces and truth of God for men has been candidly revealed through the sinless humble lamb, Lord Jesus Christ. Except Jesus Christ there is no example of a sinless man among mankind, and is not to be found. Due to the disobedience of the first Adam the people of the world were fallen,
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 92
just in the same way, through the obedience of the Lord Jesus Christ, that is through the sacrifice of His holy lifeblood the world is saved, made free from sin and were reconciled with God. 7. â€œTherefore, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because Through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin & death. 1.(2 Chronicles 7:14) 2. (Isaiah 1:18) 3. (Corinthians 1:18-25), 4. (Romans 1:16-17) 5. (2 Corinthians 5:17-21) 6. (Proverbs 3:5) 7. (Romans 8:1-2)

SEEK FIRST HIS KINGDOM AND RIGHTEOUSNESS

hat does it mean seeking the Royal Kingdom? It gives an idea that the object in the question is existing and fallen somewhere but without sincerity and faith it could not be found. It is not like mine that should be dig out but within the reach of the people who do earnestly long to have. Kingdom is understood by 4 factors as territory, people, administration (King) and governance Sovereignty. Particularly, his kingdom means that the sovereign king would administer the subjects
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 94
and he would establish the discipline, peace, prosperity and all wellbeing of the country. But seeking means something is already established and people should find and enter in it. The kingdom of god is his reign where the people should live in peace and harmony. The best example of that divine kingdom is the Lord Jesus Christ who alone could project that kingdom. The divine virtues were released hundred percent only in and through Jesus Christ. The reason is that he is not the child of Adam who was lost in sin, but he is the divine Spirit and the creative Word of God that was revealed in the human bondage that all the suffering humanity might have fellowship with him and he could expiate the sin of the world by his own unblemished blood. He became the sinless lamb to die for the lost world. In the divine kingdom the lord must be all-in-all in everything in the kingdom. The people were created by the Lord to represent him. So naturally, for representation the subjects must follow him hundred present indeed. Now we must know our Lord perfectly and love and obey him in our day to day life unconditionally. He alone is the righteous person in the form of humanity. He came to this fallen world to seek, save and find all the lost. He, out of love, left all the divine position and possession just to save us and hand us on to the beloved Father in heaven. He did not kill nor curse any fallen man but forgive them unconditionally. He loves all humanity irrespective of color, culture, cast & creed etc. Only he knows
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 95
that the whole humanity is the children of the single man named Adam. Sin has perverted them and split them as the disaster does. To heal people ailing with sin there is no medicament could be found in the world. It is the divine plan of the beloved Father that is Jesus Christ, who would die for the lost world to pay the debt to sin. Any sinner might come to that Lord must confess to him, immediately, without raisins any point, He would forgive him and he would abide in him as he did promise already. So the kingdom of God is the Lord Jesus Christ who himself is the image of the invisible God. We now understand that the kingdom in this world is a believer abiding in the Lord and the Lord is abiding in him. The one who belongs to the living Lord is the kingdom of God. In establishing such a kingdom no earthly things, like land, labor, capital, organization or anything earthly are needed. A man who has faith in him and did open his heart to the Lord Jesus Christ is that kingdom we do discuses about. A man totally consumed and controlled by the Holy Spirit is the moving kingdom of God. Wherever he goes the splendor of the Royal Kingdom is being spread around as the perfume does spread smell around automatic. A regenerated man must bear spiritual fruits as it is written in the letter written to Galatians 5:22 but the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness. A robust tree does bear flower and fruits automatic. In the case of regeneration the nature of the person is being changed from within. Regenerated person does no
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 96
more belong to the old polluted pattern of life, but he represents the unblemished Lord Jesus Christ. In case of a group of regenerated people the kingdom is being expanded horizontally. The fullness of the indwelling Holy Spirit is in depth act of the divine kingdom, No tsunami or natural disaster has any role to destroy that kingdom. It is not being established on the world power, or politics or assets that are finite. It depends on the power and grace of the infinite Lord who himself does establish that kingdom in the hearts of the people.

he beam of sun falls on all things/objects, only mirror reflects it back, because it is modeled so. When someone is taken into the full control of the Lord Jesus Christ, he becomes a new creation, born-again or regenerated. When the compassionate Lord looks upon you, a born-again child, thoroughly being changed into His likeness, you must reflect the divine beam on to the people present around, dilapidated and groping in darkness. Jesus did die
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 98
for you and me; He also died for them, as they are also the children in the same line of Adam, the first man. We are not better than them, but out of grace, abiding in Christ, made better to pass on blessings upon blessing on to the fallen brethren. We are not the owner of the blessings, but we receive blessings form the unique source of blessing, the living Lord Jesus Christ, to share the same who have not. In the light of Colossians 2:9-10, we are assured that He, the fullness of the Godhead, would protect us and provide all things that we need in launching evangelical campaign. Our duty is to keep going on and His responsibility it to protect and provide everything we need in the vineyard. Thank be to the perfect compassionate Lord who has been standing by our side. He would never leave us alone as orphan.

THE CONSEQUENCES OF SIN
Image: Old Man in Sorrow (On the Threshold of Eternity) by Dutch painter Vincent Willem van Gogh. Source/ÂŠ Wikimedia Commons, www.commons.wikimedia.org
hole world is polluted. Adam, the first man, has been deviated and sinned against the merciful God. He was deported from the heaven or blessed garden to this filthy world. We do suffer the
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 100
consequences of our sin. We are intoxicated by the alluring call of the cunning Satan. Venom has made us paralyzed. We lost the power to decipher goodness from badness and lost the distinguishing power between the righteous and sinners. During the Roman dynasty before the court of the Pilate all the people, with single voice, cried aloud to release the notorious man named Barabbas in place of innocent unblemished Son of God Jesus Christ. They were so foolish that they passed vote to kill their own compassionate Redeemer. What is the demand of the present day? People orally say that Jesus Christ is the unblemished and most holy one, revealed out of the holy God, but practically they do not acknowledge Him and prepare for Him a place in their hearts. The Sun or the moon is not to be worshiped. The material world is not the cause of righteousness. God is the Spirit and the Truth. He must be worshiped in the Spirit and in truth. Over here no physical gesture and posture are allowed or needed. To worship the merciful God those who wait upon the appearance of the moon and the sun are mere idolatrous. Those celestial bodies were created by our Father to serve us we must serve Him who is perpetual, always abiding in us. God did declare that His throne should be established in the hearts of the believers in Him. We cannot build a house for Him to accommodate. He is nearer to us even
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 101
nearer than to our jugular veins. He is Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient. He never leaves us alone and we need not to search Him out as we do excavate minerals and it is not possible at all for us to do so. Not a person in the line of the fallen Adam is holy at all. We have none, among ourselves perfect and capable, who can suck out our venom that has already been saturated in our entire being, polluting character, way of thinking, etc. Desperately, we need to be holy as our Father is holy, to abide in Him. Who would make us holy? The merciful God has introduced a perfect provision to redeem us from our sinful state and put us back to His own celestial compassionate lap. To materialize the plan into reality He sent Jesus Christ, the living Word and Spirit of God, into human bondage to expiate our sin and debt to our sin. Only in Him we are made hundred percent holy as our Father is holy. All have sinned and it is not possible for a sinner to work out his salvation. All people, including the religious leaders are confirmed that the holy God does not pay heed to the cry of a perverted sinner. He asked them to reason first and turns back from their sinful nature and activities. They must repent and confess as the Kingdom of God is near at hand. Do you understand what does the Kingdom of God mean? It is the Lord Jesus Christ, an unblemished divine Lamb who has revealed to be slaughtered to expiate the sin of the world. If any sinner confidently wants and desires to be redeemed and sanctified, he must have fresh bath with the unblemished
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 102
blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is the living Lord Jesus Christ who alone did pay the full cost to emancipate the sinners of the world. The divine Light has been shining but darkness of this world could not comprehend it. The sole responsibility to shine the world that has been covered under darkness is fallen upon the lights of the world, the disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ. They must not confine them within the comfort zone of the Church yard or four walls of the Church buildings ignoring the Great commission (Mt 28:1620). Practically a believer in the risen Lord Jesus Christ is a living Church. Every single drop of oozing water could logically be called water fall. What we see, a vigorous force is mere accumulation of innumerable drops of the oozing water from snow. With the anointing of the indwelling Holy Spirit we, all the regenerated brethren in Christ must be united together to make a gigantic force to wipe out the remnant of the accursed Satan. Light and darkness are opposite force. But several lights could be burnt together without any objection at the end of the lights; rather the brighter light would be there. (John 17:11).

THE DEATH OF JESUS
Image: Then he (Jesus Christ) said to them, "My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me: Matthew 26:38." Source/ÂŠ Carinas Journal, www.carinasjournal.com
t the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to death.
At the time, crucifixion was the "worst" death. Only the worst criminals were condemned to be crucified. Yet, it was even more dreadful for Jesus, for unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion, Jesus was nailed to the cross by His hands and feet, rather than tied. Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 104
The nails were driven into His wrist. Not into His palms as is commonly portrayed. There's a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder. The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist, that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself, so that He could breathe. Both of His feet were nailed together. Thus, He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support himself with His legs for long because of the pain, so He was forced to alternate between arching His back and using his legs just to continue to breath. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage. Jesus endured this reality for over 3 hours. A few minutes before He died, Jesus stopped bleeding. He was simply pouring water from his wounds. From common images, we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side. But do we remember the many wounds made to his body. A hammer driving large nails through the wrists, the feet overlapped and a nail hammered through the
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 105
arches, then a Roman guard piercing His side with a spear. And before the nails and the spear, Jesus was whipped and beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore the flesh from His body. The beating was so horrific that His face was torn and his beard had been ripped from His face. The crown of thorns (two to three inch thorns) cut deeply into His scalp. Most men would not have survived this torture. He had no more blood to bleed out, only water poured from His wounds. All these without mentioning the humiliation He passed after carrying His own cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his face and threw stones. The cross beam was almost 30 kg of weight, to which His hands were nailed. Jesus had to endure this experience, so that you may have free access to God, that your sins can be "washed" away. All of them, with no exception! Jesus Christ died for you.

THE EFFICACY OF THE WORD OF GOD
Image: For the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit. Source/ÂŠ www.immagini.4ever.eu
he efficacy of the Word of God first starts in the minds, and then is seen into practice through attitude and practical activities. When minds are controlled, eventually, the practice must be changed. Are you a human being? Do you know that? Did someone tell you or you yourself come to that hypothesis? Definitely, somebody told you about your identity. It is not possible for a just born kid to understand the self identity at the time of its birth. The infant comes to growth, physically, mentally, intellectually and spiritually to know thyself and the world around him. The role of the nurseâ€™s and teachers, in the life of a just-born babe is of vital importance. Most of the times, it is found, even the teachers do not know
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 107
things perfectly, in that case, how would they transmit the knowledge to their pupils? Dear brother, you declared that you are a human being, very good! Would you show me some remarkable differences, not biological superstructure, naturally are marked to distinguish mankind from other animals? I found none, even in me, to set an example of such differences. The biological need, natural call and even emotion appear almost same in both the groups. So, rightly it is called that man is animal by nature (blind biological concerned). Is it wise to expect something better product from the mortal flesh? That expectation would be nuisance! They must get rid of the level of the flesh, and abolish the hidden bestiality within the flesh, and become totally controlled by the divine virtue, love of God. Since love solves all follies in letting a man on the upper level with the Supreme Being. The perfect pinnacle of love and holiness has been reveled in Jesus Christ, and it is the free gift for all humanity for regeneration to enjoy fellowship with the holy and righteous One. Among the whole humanity, Only Jesus Christ is holy, and ready to exonerate the sin of the world, and He is so able and authorized to do so. Sinners can come to Him by faith. He is humble and trustworthy, and never declines who seek His asylum. In the celestial book, something remarkable is written, that I like to mention. The supreme creator did declare that He created man in His own image,
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 108
to represent Him, i.e. for the projection of His divine virtues into reality. An ambassador of a country is sent to an alien country, for the projection of culture, progress, and lifestyle and also in setting up ties between and among the countries. In reality, the blue plan of the merciful and perfect God has already been distorted away. There is none up to the mark to act as an example. All have sinned and fell short the glory of the holy God. It is the righteous Lord Jesus Christ who stands in place of God to bring the world back to its own position. The unblemished blood of the Lord has been shed to wash up the sins of the world. There is no other source left for the born sinners, to come to the Holy and just God, being sanctified. Are you confirming about your own drowned position? Have you tried to alleviate your position several times, yet fallen in a hopeless and despair situation. How long would you try your best to meet the rapture? Do you feel, you need someone, able and perfect, to help out you? Did you ever call aloud such a benevolent person? You and I need a perfect friend, ready to pull us out of the ditches we are huddling in. We should stretch out our hands, with entire sincerity, unto Him with hundred percent desire and submission. Definitely, the creator had had sent a person, filled with the supreme love, to regenerate us.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 109
He is Jesus Christ, knocking at your door to enter and help you. He would never change your culture or food habit or shrink back you from your circle of friends, but lead you unto the full truth, holiness and perfection. He would regenerate you into the original shape that is in the image of the compassionate God. Just invite Him in your hearts with your whole being. Be confident, He loves you.

any verse or sentence that you have uttered in your own house to Him and were not answered by Him at all, on the plea of your own dilapidated nestle? Please tell me as which place is closer to Him? You are calling the Almighty God who is Omnipotent, Omnipresent & Omniscient who does abide in the heart of His devotees. Tell me, is there any supreme power exists to confine Him in a tiny house; as a result all the devotees were compelled to have difficult move towards that direction to pay a homage to Him and to do so they become compelled to request the jailor under him He is enchained? A group of religious dealers, for their self-centered illicit commercial gain, have blinded and hypnotized people of the world and wrongly have been misleading those traveling historical places of pilgrimage in the plea of meeting with God and gaining divine bliss. Who does count them who have been trembled because of impassable mob under feet in those pilgrims? How does it suit in assemblage of perverted and polluted earthly materials on the plea of worshipping One Who is the unblemished spiritual being? Doesnâ€™t He seek the hearts of His devotees to make it sanctified and much brighter? Cataract on eyes needs to cut open to help the patient see clearly and enable him to distinguish between good and bad. For our inherent fellowship with Him He wants to make us sanctified and unblemished as He himself is holy and spiritual being and righteous.

The condition of enjoying fellowship with Him and become a member of His family we must be hundred percent holy and sanctified, heart and soul, spiritually and physically. Being perverted sinners, we must seek such a pond of waters that is clean and able to wash away our spots of sins forever. It is not possible at all to find out such clean and powerful masses of water, in this world, as it is the place of arrogant Adam, following his deportation. The present world is totally polluted. This world is mere place of deportation for Adam because of his disobedience. Since it is impossible for man to find out a sum of holy water for baptismal become sanctified, the merciful God, out of love, has provided a chance for the sinners to get rid and be sanctified through that God-sent divine person, His own Spirit and Word, in the human bondage. He is the divine Lamb to expiate the sin of the world, Jesus Christ. He is the Spirit of God Who is hundred percent holy, unblemished and compassionate, the pinnacle of love ready to sacrifice His life and holy blood that the repentant sinners might get rid of the penalty of sin and its debt. This is the divine provision to make the sinners free from the agelong sin of the world. He is the Son of God, the visible picture of the invisible God. This son is the virgin birth, through the virgin Merry, the unique Redeemer of the fallen world. He alone has assured His followers of eternal life assurance to keep them secured against the entire tough situation.

It is easy, by the fruits, to distinguish between Idolatry and monotheism. In polytheism the devotees must run too and fro motion with different offerings to appease goddess of different mood and nature, as a result, the victims gets easily exhausted. They have countless goddess those are located in different zones of the world and they also expect their devotees at different seasons. These deities demands earthly offerings as they were formed or evolved out of this earth. It is said, in twelve months, thirteen religious festivities to be followed strictly by the idol worshippers. In the spiritual way of worship, none does need any earthly or polluted materials to offer to the divine deity. It must be offered in spirit and in truth as God is the Spirit and the Truth. The theist believes that the God is Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient One Who does control all events. He created man in His own image to represent Him. He did create man and afterward by his rib he also created a woman, and this is the story of human creation. In the beginning He asked man not to worship any other deities other than Him. To find Him man doesnâ€™t need to run too and fro motion as His presence prevails everywhere. The Lord remains available there where the true devotees are. He also assured us that He is nearer than to our jugular veins. It is also said that He abides in the hearts of the believers. All the exceptions to the true system of worship that is in the Spirit and Truth were introduced to serve mere commercial gain. To protect His devotees from misleading in other

directions and to lead them to the set goal that is reunion back to the Father, Who is hundred percent holy and righteous, He sent a righteous Son, Jesus Christ, in the human bondage, as a dazzling example of righteousness and truthfulness and divine virtues being blended in the human character without sinful nature. He is the pinnacle of divine love, patience, forgiveness and all the goodness for us. He did never hurt or kill any person for the sake of earthly benefit. He did forgive even His fierce enemies at the crucial moment on the heart rending cross. On the contrary, He did forgive and asked blessing for them to the Father. He did never fight any homicidal battle. There is no spot of sin in His character. He is the living Spirit and Word of God in the human bondage that was revealed in this fallen and polluted world. The total and complete exposure of the righteousness has been done only through Him. In the point of righteousness and for the reconciliation back to the Father He told that all must have to be holy as the Father is holy. One must be sanctified completely to enjoy real lively fellowship with God. He also referred from the holy book, Leviticus 11:44, I am the LORD your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. Do not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves about on the ground. 45 I am the LORD who brought you up out of Egypt to be your God; therefore be holy, because I am holy.

Our country is like a desert in the area of the knowledge in the Gospel and Godâ€™s word. Though all people were created in the image of God through the same line of Adam, the first man, but they have turned away ignoring the God-given principles, required believing in the Holy One. Sometimes people with different attitudes are found in the society. These people flatly deny the fact that the people of the whole world were created to love one another and bring glory to Him. Most of the people of the world are somehow acquainted to someone called the Supreme Being who, at the remote, pivots the mechanism of the cosmos. But they have no clear conception of Him. It is as if, some blind people have observed an elephant and thought different ideas about it from touching it as a blindfolded man. God had started sharing His identity to the wayward beloved children bit by bit. Finally He has revealed himself to the lost people, through His Son Jesus Christ, Who are the source of grace, power and holiness. He is the pinnacle of Love and perfection. Anyone can really trust in Him without any argument or doubt. He manifested himself to be trustworthy to His disciples at the cost of his own life and shed His blood. He is living love expressed and incarnated God. In any country among any group of people there are several doors or windows to enter into peopleâ€™s lives. As in case of people you can

make contact to any person using your five sense organs. In the cultural context of Bangladesh to manifest the undefiled unique love of God before the unreached people you would have a lot of wide-open opportunities. In the city of Athens the apostle Paul could find out such a contact point in the area about the idols and one to an unknown god to manifest the love of our Lord Jesus Christ even among the hordes of godless people. Jesus was touched and led by the Holy Spirit. Are you being urged by the same Spirit to evangelize or saturate this country or any country with the saving message of the Lord? Think yourself, as if you were in a room without any source of light, you wouldn’t be able to see anything around you. Please try to light up a lamp, anywhere in the society, whatever even if it is feeble, immediately it would start illuminating the area resulting in amazing possibilities. So without light you are as if dead in a so beautiful world that God made and said “it is good”. People are the best of God’s creation. Please try to understand them and behave accordingly in a manner that honors the Lord Jesus Christ. Only the accursed Satan makes them ugly whispering heinous plots in their minds. It is God alone who takes all the steps to make them free from their sinful and deteriorated state. Jesus Christ is the only answer to all of these problems.

The dealers of any commodity try to introduce the products to the consumers. They manifest it, explain its utility, longevity, versatility, durability etc. to make the consumers understand and convince of the same. The evangelists and the truly committed believers of the only Redeemer of the sinners Jesus Christ should leave no stone unturned to make him acquainted to the unreached people. They should help people to come to the Lord and to be united with one another. He came to gather whatever was lost and scattered away. The dim impact of the age-long evangelical ventures proved the process pessimistic, discouraging, illogical and unreasonable. But the message of the Gospel and life of Jesus Christ is unique. His love is unique, at the stage of his pinnacle, his holiness is incomparable; his compassion is unbound by the framework of human knowledge and perception. His entire life is the vivid picture of the invisible God. It is the way of presentation of His message that matters. Most of the foreign missionaries over the last 200 years endeavored to introduce the culture of the western Christians mixed with the gospel instead of the Living Lord Jesus Christ. He translated the love of God and manifested His plan to the world at the cost of His holy and unblemished life. If someone tries his best to introduce his own culture instead of the living Lord, of course there would be an ulcer in that society. Most of the missionaries wanted to take the inquirers & new

believers away from their roots & tear them apart from the existing society before educating, edifying and building them up profoundly in the Living Lord. One could by the Grace of God carefully study the words of God and may come to a living faith. God speaks to the believers and unbelievers through His Living Words & also inspires and guides them by the work of the Holy Spirit to bring about conversion and sanctification. It is not the social structure of the society but the attitude of the people that is to be changed into that of the compassionate Lord which may then affect the attitudes and actions of a society. He died not for the Christians alone but also for the sinners of the whole world to make them Christâ€™s own. His path may be smooth and even but the pastors and missionaries, for their selfish end, made that path sometimes uneven and complicated. The Lord asked every believer to worship the heavenly Father in the Spirit & truth. The Spirit means contrary to the physical being & truth means contrary to the falsehood. There is no need to delight the nostril of the Living Lord by burning incense, because He sees the hearts and prefers its purity of the devotees. He demands our hearts should be holy as that of the Father in heaven. We may like and plant many kinds of different trees because we tasted the fruits of those trees. We dislike some of those because either they are not good for wood or not good for fruits. So it is true to say that the trees are known by its fruits. We prefer someone responsible, faithful &

hardworking than other lazy people like those who are of no use. We would say in the context of Bangladesh, that if we sincerely want to evangelize our people, we must not harm them but love & help them. We must be impartial in our attitude, as the Lord did love all the people impartially. Our goal should not be tearing the individual apart from the society or family, but help him to be adjusted with them. The believer is to be a light to remove darkness. So that it is kept and set in the midst of darkness. The believers in the Living Lord Jesus Christ are called the Light of the world, as He is the unique light of the world. They are His emissaries â€“ so it is obvious â€“ they must be put in the heart of the society, so that the whole society may receive light & be illuminated. We must understand the strategy of battle. No single shower can make a creek or stream of water in the desert or even in an oasis. To make any flowing creek or river constant & continuous heavy showers are needed. In the knowledge of the saving message countries like Bangladesh are as deserts. Some of them have ideas about the living Lord but those are erroneous, partial & imperfect. We can follow the strategy that Apostle Paul did use in the city of Athens when he preached about the statue to the unknown God. He did not criticize them bitterly rather with love & respect he opened his mouth and explained the truths about the living God.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 122
Islamic people know something about Jesus Christ. In the Koran many truths about Him are told including his, virgin birth, his righteousness, power over disease, death and Satan and truths to do with the last or final Day of Judgment when they recognize that Christ will return. Careful study will help the believers to point out the contradictory & erroneous statements are found in the same book always with grace and humility. If someone knows Jesus Christ perfectly in the Holy Bible he would be able to detect the wrong teachings being professed in other books. It is like that type of detection of the currency; you must know the legal tender to distinguish the forged tender. Jesus Christ is the incarnate love of God for the fallen human being. He came to redeem the sinners, not to condemn them. He is here to set up peace in the hearts of the people that the world has no capacity to offer. He is the only way back to the Father in heaven. We must saturate our country by the teachings of the Living Lord Jesus Christ – the saving message – the only Gospel. The gospel is not only a book but also the living and walking inspiration of God’s mind and heart. When people are changed into His likeness then the goal of the evangelism would be successful. We may come in contact with the notorious persons not to enhance their devilish activities but to see them transformed into the
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 123
attitude and character of the living and loving Lord Jesus Christ. We should not introduce any culture or social environment that would maroon them from the larger existing society. God doesn’t demand any social, physical or cultural activities to worship Him. His demand is God must be worshipped in Spirit & Truth. Both are immaterial. Spirit is the Holy Spirit that convinces a person to have a new attitude that our Lord does possess. And Truth is God’s absolute truth & revealed by the Lord Jesus Christ– we can’t attain these qualifications from any institutions in the world or buy them at any cost from the whole materialistic world. The power of the Holy Spirit is a gift of God available to grant people the grace to repent as a depraved sinner. The Word of God is good for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. We must wait for the harvest to be given in God’s time. It is good optimistic scene in Bangladesh. But if someone waits even a thousand years without cultivation or sowing seeds in the field, that waiting would be foolishness for him. For last 25 years we have been cultivating the land and sowing the seeds and now are the time to enjoy and have a bumper harvest.

ONLY TRUTH MUST SURVIVE
Image: Being in accordance with the actual state of affairs is the Truth which is conformable to an essential reality and fully realized or fulfilled. Source/ÂŠ Your Tango, www.yourtango.com
ruth must be uttered truthfully and without being biased! What is truth? That is the real point to ponder over! God is indeed Truth! Jesus Christ is the Truth!! Holy Spirit is also Truth!!! What about whole humanity? Undoubtedly, they all have been groping in the spiritual darkness. But the merciful sagacious God has created man in His own image to represent Him with all the divine authority! Sure, hundred percent correct you are. Do you understand what does the term OSD mean? It is Officer on Special duty! It is fun, as it is one kind of punishment because of his disobedience done to
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 125
the interest of the ruling authority. Same case happened with the first man- Adam who did prefer the whispering of the accursed Satan duly ignoring and doubting the command of the sagacious merciful God. The serious consequence had fallen upon him, were driven away from the paradise called Eden. This world is a place of deportation (OSD) for him as well as for all of us. No one among humanity could have bridge over the chasm between the holy God and the fallen humanity. We are made blind spiritually. We have blended righteousness with wickedness. The Ten Commandment has measured our righteousness as mere filthy rags in comparison to that of the most righteous God- Father of the universe. We are so blind, even fratricidal war has been recommended by us as one the divine virtues. In the said Ten Commandment it is so clearly cautioned not to kill anyone. Being dirty to be clean naturally we seek for clean water, but sad to say in this perverted world it is not available at all! Finding no alternatives we are compelled to look up at the throne of the ever merciful God to have such a special grace to bestow upon us that would sanctify us all as we are repentant and end up without hope in ourselves. Even no prophets could have assured us to sanctify by themselves. They all have pointed unto the holy and merciful God to seek from. All the prophets did speak the same point, â€œRepent, leave the wicked ways, seek His holy face, and trust and hold up the
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 126
divine special grace without any iota of doubtâ€? thatâ€™s the all. What about the divine special grace we know so far? Without a doubt it is Jesus Christ! He alone is the living Word of the living God and the Holy Spirit of the Holy God Who is Spirit being that was breathed by the Father into the womb of the Virgin Mary. He did perform so many miracles those were not possible for mere man in the line of the deviated Adam. Jesus Christ is the living Truth, visible picture of the invisible God. He is the pinnacle of love who did sacrifice His own unblemished blood to redeem the lost world irrespective of color, caste, creed, religious or social diversity or territorial differences, in one word, He came to seek and save the lost children of the deviated Adam He alone is the Truth to herald all over the world at any cost! If you have any potency, please invest that to evangelical campaign to herald the glorious Gospel that has been wrought at the cost of His incorruptible blood of the Redeemer of the world.

ight use of the divine guidelines!
Throughout the centuries the merciful God has been leading the nation He has created in His own image to represent Him, but sad to say, initially they have been made perverted to defame the compassionate Father either way, and the same trend has been working in every human being till today! None in the line of the deviated Adam has been exempted from this immoral personality, so it is rightly said that none but Jesus Christ- the unblemished Son of God is holy. So, it is logical to point out that ‘therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!’ Definitely not the biological or carnal change does take place over here but the spiritual and mental faculty has been mentioned
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 128
over here. It is the living Lord who through the indwelling Holy Spirit does consume and lead that person who has committed unto the Son of God as the master of his life. It shouldn’t be so hard to have real sense of commitment. In our day to day lives we need counseling of the talented and concerned people in different need of life. In case of sickness we seek suggestion of a famous physician and do proceed accordingly to become healed again. So in the legal matter we do follow advice of a legal practitioner and in the religious matters to the religiously devout and so on so forth! It we make mistake then we have to suffer seriously, the whole world has been suffering because of the erroneous choice of guide as our biological Father Adam did prefer the counseling of the accursed Satan duly ignoring that of the sagacious beloved Father God. We are greatly morbid to mention that century-ago depravity, we have nothing to add or subtract to and from it but we are now living being to move on ahead, so we must pay heed to the right instructions appended before us to follow to get ease in our rest of the life. A murderer must not be our guide on to the compassionate God who does love all human being equally. Do we not inhale the same oxygen to live on? Aren’t the natural gifts are allowed to all equally? Is not God impartial One? Weren’t the prophets were chosen from the progeny of fallen
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 129
Adam to herald the divine tenets to lead the humanity back to the Holy Father? God is unique, His divine Word is unique and His Spirit is unique! He breathed His living Word and Holy Spirit into the womb of the virgin woman named Marry, so the son was born and named him Jesus Christ that means the divine Holy Spirit into human bondage to redeem the sinners of the world! He alone is the unblemished person who has been authorized to wrought salvation of the world at the cost of His unblemished blood! He alone is the perfect person to follow in life of every person at any atmosphere! He is the image of the invisible God! He who has seen Him has seen the invisible Father of the universe! He has been knocking at the door of every sinner and suffers to transform him into saint for the glory of the Father in heaven!

ur dear fellows in the Lordâ€™s vineyard, We greet you with the everlasting joy in the living Lord Jesus Christ.
In these perilous times, people scoff at the evangelical activities. The signs of the End Time are being hinted in diversified ways. It is true to say that investment in the commercial field must not be same that of the educational goal. It is difficult job to educate a nation on the divine subjects. The fruit of education takes time to be harvested that is in
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 131
changing a society. Only the Word of God is powerful to mend a broken heart and in changing the attitudes it is also practical. The religious but rebellious people have been chalking out schemes after schemes to jeopardize our evangelical steps. With the divine water we endeavor to saturate our country, but they leave no stone unturned to dampen our zeal. Our talent, knowledge, power, and monetary stand are insignificant to thwart up the satanic forces. As a mere man, I have already been caught under the gripper of the world, but thanks be to the living compassionate Lord, Who hastily stressed merciful hands to protect, inspire, guide and lead me to materialize His divine purpose. Friends may doubt, but the living Lord would never, as He reads even the hidden hearts of all devotees. To establish His kingdom here in Bangladesh, He has been using me, a man prone to failure, to speak aloud afresh, for His glory. Every day we receive letters from the brethren who are eager to quench their heartfelt thirsts with the divine water that has been constantly flowing incessantly for all children in the line of Adam, through the unique and living Spring of God- Jesus Christ. The transparent, holy, unblemished, divine miraculous Lord, who has been standing and knocking at every door, ready to reorganize all

perilous and massy hearts. Our readers have come to comprehend this vital point about Him. He didnâ€™t come to kill, destroy or ransack, but to save and help that those victims might become acceptable to the holy and merciful God. A green coconut takes time for ripening, but it mustnâ€™t be separated from the palm until maturity. I have witnessed many instances, in the traditional way of evangelism that they immediately push out just born converts, in the street or before unknown and unfriendly audience, to bear testimony of his new faith. The result is obvious, they get lost in couple of years. Does any parent let their just born in the field for earning its livelihood? A sapling demands proper care, protection, watering and sun to get proper growth for fruition. There are lots of harmful elements, like moth, to destroy a nice garden. We are saved by the intense care of the watchful and vigilant Lord. Please praise and pray for our activities as mentioned below: 1. Weekly magazine, The Alor Foara (fountain of light) is very strong and popular media, being published in the Bengali language to reach out the Gospel door to door. Sometimes, the enemies identify, ahead of time than the friends do the weakness to hit and topple down any evangelical plan. We are being protected, because we have a vigilant invisible guard, sustainer and Lord to lead
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 133
us always for His glory. We can always cast our all cares and anxieties upon Him, but we must abide in Him and move onward to the single goal, as He is our Goal. 2. Please pray to run the correspondence course incessantly. Every day the number of the students of this brilliant media is increasing unthinkably. 3. We urgently need two compositors, capable and speedy to compose our articles for the weekly and letters to the students. 4. Follow-up through seminars has been of great impact. Sometimes, we travel different places to encourage and educate the believers and the inquirers. 5. We should print out new literatures to meet the hunger of the day. 6. Gospel Message and Song Cassettes through Islamic style has been proved very useful and lucid media to stir up the people positively. 7. Equipping the believers to become men of staunch faith in God, is only our goal. A regenerated man cannot sit idle. He would get always involved to carry on the noble task of evangelism for the glory of the Father in heaven. 8. Please pray for us that we can continue our voluntary services to herald the unique message of love, hope, salvation, reconciliation and come back to the lap of our Father in heaven. It is a matter of regret that we were slipped back from there that is divine fellowship of our Father. We deem it should be the core cause of all evangelical movements, the Royal kingdom and the
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 134
righteousness of God. He alone is the object of our worship. Jesus also has taught us to love our neighbor as ourselves. Humbly yours in Him.

braham Lincoln, the 16th president of the North America did deliver an ever memorable address to the nations at the time of crucial moment of juncture to get rid of the arena of darkness to the light, life, civilization and emancipation of humanity. The essence of that address is concern of the people. It is people that must be highlighted on all interest. The Supreme Creator, the merciful God has created man in His own image to represent Him. To present representation the anointed person must have
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 136
equal status of the one on behalf of Him he is going to reflect. God is unblemished, so the representative must or should be unblemished. He is compassionate so naturally the representative must have been compassionate in character and attitude. God is love so the representative must be beloved and ready even to die to do well and beneficial step for the needed and deserving beneficiaries. The miraculous Creator has created the whole universe for the benefit of the humanity. They are as like as the pupil of His eyes. He loves them so much that they just fail to understand it, as a just born simply fail to feel the maternal love unto it. A green coconut was born into the coconut family indeed, but it must be matured enough unto ripen stage for germinating in order to create another palm of coconut. A just born also needs nursing, caring, feeding, for its outgrowth unto a perfect man to represent the Lord Who is the original creator of humanity. Adam was the perfect person God created Him in His own image with a lofty plan to materialize. But he was deceived and deprived of the divinely allocation, place of perpetual peace and happiness in the living fellowship of God. The worse consequence immediately his fall started affected gradually; one of his sons did kill his brother. Whole humanity is now become captives under the rule of the power of darkness. You would fine none have been exempted from the curse and venom already injected into Adam.
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 137
We the human being is fallen from the status and level of God in every aspect, but Adam were created in the image of God to represent Him- the righteous holy God. Though he was driven away from the closed divine fellowship of the merciful God, yet out of His unfathomable love, He has not forgotten him for good. At the time of the disobedience of Adam the beloved Father had declared good news of redemption through a special provision, unblemished Son who will work out salvation at the cost of His own unblemished blood that is the candid projection of the pinnacle of love of the Father to his misled children. You would read two remarkable verses in the holy Bible John 3:16-17 those expound the great love in the heart of God ready to pour out for lost world to redeem. It also speaks that God is not happy to condemn the sinners and condemnation does not help at all but love covers and heal the broken down hearts get recovered! Good medical practitioners render service to his patients and always encourage his patients with progressive report and it does work. But the enemy does discourage people and sinners that they are so bad no hope for recovery. The possessed by the Satan does also refer all the past miseries to discourage the devotees who have been moving ahead for the glory of the Father. In the light of the divine redemptive plan of God let us encourage all to move ahead with joy, hope,
Rev. Dr. M A Wahab | The Fountain of Light - 138
courage, fellowship and love for all. It is the Father who has done the way out for us at the cost of His Son, so there is none to snatch away us from Him. He has always been with us through the promised Holy Spirit. We are not alone or orphans. We have been granted the heredity of our Father. All the killers are the possessed of the accursed Satan and those who do strive for the benefit of the humanity are being inspired by the Lord the Holy Spirit. God does love people and Satan does divide, kill and destroy. Whole people have only way out from the pit of darkness only through the sacrificial unblemished blood of the Son of God- Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ does never divide humanity by any tools like color, creed or even religion a practically all are the fallen sinners of Adam who desperately need blessed Redeemer Jesus Christ. Religious ritualism is not and cannot be way our or means of redemption. Whole world has been made blind by the deceivers. Please produce a single person who had not violated the Ten Commandments! All ritualism was gradually introduced to meet the commercial gain only. We must have distinct insight into these matters for our own benefit. It is the Lord Jesus Christ who alone has bridge between the Holy God and sinners like us.
