Doctors lose patients as Pastor heals sick, Bihar.
Religious Fanatics claim that Doctors are losing patients because Pastor is healing the sick.
Pastor Alok Saw lives in a village called Babhanbigha which is located in Sheikhpura, a district in Bihar, India. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Saviour and Lord in 2017. Since then he has been a passionate evangelist. Wanting all to experience the same joy & happiness he received, he introduces Jesus to all who he meets.
Pastor Saw also carries a powerful anointing from God to heal the sick. People who are ailing, get miraculously healed when Pastor Saw prays for them in the powerful name of Jesus Christ.
18 months ago, God lead Pastor Saw to start a house church. It was a prayer answered as many Christians in that area wanted to have a place to pray and fellowship together. The mighty presence of God in that place drew many people to Christ. Gradually the church began to grow to a point where Pastors home was too small to contain the congregation. So he decided to conduct the worship meetings on his own open land. As of today, around 300 Christians gather every Sunday to pray andWorship Jesus Christ together.
On the evening of 15/01/20, 4 unidentified people approached Pastor Saw. “I did not know them as they were not from myvillage” said the Pastor. “ I was startled when they started abusing me and asking me why I was calling people to myhouse”. Falsely accusing Pastor Saw of using healing as a means to convert people, they said, “After you pray for the sick, they get healed and due to that, the number of visits to the Doctors have reduced!” To which he wisely replied, “I cannot convert anybody to Christianity, No! I don’t do that. People come because they experience deliverance, healing, peace and joy.Tell me what is your problem? My constitution allows me to do what I am doing, I am not forcefully converting anybody!”
Pastor Saw called the Persecution Relief Toll Free No : 1800-1234-461 and briefed us about this incident. He told us that as soon as the Church members started to arrive, the fanatics ran away. He has requested prayer for his ministry and congregation.
As we experience persecution on a heavy rise in India, may we never be distracted by it and keep our gaze fixed on Jesus. As 2 Timothy 2:4 tells us- No one serving as a soldier gets entangled in civilian affairs, but rather tries to please his commanding officer. May our hearts desire that we become good soldiers for Jesus Christ!
