Praise the Lord in the Highest! Psalm 148:1

Let us keep on magnifying our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; who was, who is and will come to take us to heaven. (Revelation 1:8).

We have sure and certain hope (Hebrews 11:1) in our Lord and Saviour who has given this opportunity to live in this life.

We would like to thank you for your involvement in the process to make Christmas with RUN’s family successful. Everybody were exceptional and did their part. As we know some’ presence was enough; yet some the more then less. Your labour will not be in vain (1Corinthian 15:58).

In coming days we will be doing this more often, sowing the word of God not by words but by our deeds. We would like everyone of you to be prepare, because the days coming are darker. We need light to walk in darkness.  Our dear Father and God will pay us according to our deeds (Roman 2:6)

Hence, let us forget what happened or past but let us move unto perfection for his Glorious Kingdom.

Soon we will see the footage of the very day….

May God bless you all

Who are we? “Khukuri to Cross”


Khukuri to Cross 


We are the Gurkhas and decedents who, who came from hills of Nepal and served under the British Crown with honor and dignity oathed to protect queen and the country from foreign and domestic ailments, whose weapon is “Khukuri”. One could define us as gun for hire, ruthless killers and there is never no for an answer. Once sworn as Gurkha it is kill or be killed. Now in UK.

Before we were ruthless killers, gun for hire and kill or be killed but today this very group of people who were in darkness have found light in Lord and God Jesus Christ.

Lord Jesus said to fishermen, “Come, I will make you a fisher of men”. Like wise Lord Jesus has said to us, “Come, I will make you not killer but life saver”

“The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.” Isaiah 9:2

“The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up” Matthew 4:16

Now we, praise God Jesus Christ who has given us grace, mercy and Agape Love toward people like us.

We are a group of people who are the fruit of the prayers of our patriarchs of faith.

Want to know us more see our Statement of faith.

Since we are people from Himalayas we are linked with, El-Shaddai Church, Kalimpong, India. Which is established through the fervent prayers and the vision given to our dear Brother Bhaktha Singh of India, who gave all to gain Christ.

STRATEGIES FOR FIGHTING LUST

The need for warfare against the bombardment of visual temptation to fixate on sexual images is urgent.  When I say “lust” I mean the realm of thought, imagination, and desire that leads to sexual misconduct. So here is one set of strategies in the war against LUST. I put it in the form of an acronym – A N T H E M.

A – AVOID as much as is possible and reasonable the sights and situations that arouse unfitting desire. I say “possible and reasonable” because some exposure to temptation is inevitable. And I say “unfitting desire” because not all desires for sex, food, and family are bad. We know when they are unfitting and unhelpful and on their way to becoming enslaving. We know our weaknesses and what triggers them. “Avoiding” is a Biblical strategy. “Flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness” (2 Timothy 2:22). “Make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires” (Romans 13:14).

N – Say NO to every lustful thought within five seconds. And say it with the authority of Jesus Christ. “In the name of Jesus, NO!” You don’t have much more than five seconds. Give it more unopposed time than that, and it will lodge itself with such force as to be almost immovable. Say it out loud if you dare. Be tough and warlike. As John Owen said, “Be killing sin or it will be killing you.” Strike fast and strike hard. “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).

T – TURN the mind forcefully toward Christ as a superior satisfaction. Saying “no” will not suffice. You must move from defense to offense. Fight fire with fire. Attack the promises of sin with the promises of Christ. The Bible calls lusts “deceitful desires” (Ephesians 4:22). They lie. They promise more than they can deliver. The Bible calls them “passions of your former ignorance” (1 Peter 1:14). Only fools yield. “All at once he follows her, as an ox goes to the slaughter” (Proverbs 7:22). We must stock our minds with the superior promises and pleasures of Jesus. Then we must turn to them immediately after saying, “NO!”

H – HOLD the promise and the pleasure of Christ firmly in your mind until it pushes the other images out. “Fix your eyes on Jesus” (Hebrews 12:2). Here is where many fail. They give in too soon. They say, “I tried to push it out, and it didn’t work.” I ask, “How long did you try?” How hard did you exert your mind? The mind is a muscle. You can flex it with vehemence. Take the kingdom violently (Matthew 11:12). Be brutal. Hold the promise of Christ before your eyes. Hold it. Hold it! Don’t let it go! Keep holding it! How long? As long as it takes. Fight! For Christ’s sake, fight till you win! If an electric garage door were about to crush your child you would hold it up with all your might and holler for help, and hold it and hold it and hold it and hold it.

E – ENJOY a superior satisfaction. Cultivate the capacities for pleasure in Christ. One reason lust reigns in so many is that Christ has so little appeal. We succumb to lust because we have little delight in Christ. Don’t say, “That’s just not me.” What steps have you taken to waken affection for Jesus? Have you fought for joy? Don’t be fatalistic. You were created to treasure Christ with all your heart — more than you treasure sex or good food. If you have little taste for Jesus, competing pleasures will triumph. Plead with God for the satisfaction you don’t have: “Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days” (Psalm 90:14). Then look, look, look at the most wonderful Person in the universe until you see Him the way he is.

M – MOVE into a useful activity away from idleness and other vulnerable behaviors. Lust grows fast in the garden of leisure. Find a good work to do, and do it with all your might. “Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord” (Romans 12:11). “Be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord” (1 Corinthians 15:58). Abound in work. Get up and do something. Sweep a room. Hammer a nail. Write a letter. Fix a faucet. And do it for Jesus’s sake. You were made to manage and create. Christ died to make you “zealous for good works” (Titus 2:14). Displace deceitful lusts with a passion for good deeds.

Fighting at your side,

JOHN PIPER
