Like so many immigrants, Bhupinder moved to Canada from India within the last decade.

Working in the banking industry as an Information technology professional, he has done pretty well for himself being elevated to the position of the technical head of the teams that design & develop banking software.

And he was thankful to God for that. "I thought whatever I had," says Bhupinder, "was a blessing from WAHEGURU - my own religion, my own faith, my own scriptures."

Bhupinder was faithful to the Sikh religion and traditions. Both he & his wife prayed and read the Guru Granth Sahib daily and followed the teachings in their daily life. 

But that began to change. "One night, after praying and reading our scriptures, my wife had a dream. In this dream, the Lord Jesus himself came to her and told her about what she has been praying for. At that point, we had never read the Bible or knew much about the Lord Jesus or gone to any church."

"She immediately realized and had the revelation that the Lord Jesus is the true, real & living God. That’s why He knows what I have been praying as per my Sikh scriptures. She immediately accepted the Lord Jesus.

I was a bit reluctant. I thought, I have got everything from my own Guru / religion, so why do we need a new God?"

Bhupinder began to seek out the truth about his wifes new revelation. He called a local church and spoke with a pastor. Bhupinder asked him,"Do I have to change my religion or my dress code to come to your faith?" He was told that Christianity is not a religion but a direct relationship with God and that whatever kind of dress he wore, it was okay.

While Christians believe that there is one God who created everything, they also believe that this same God is accessible by anyone directly. God is supreme over everyone and at the same time, personal to each individual.

Bhupinder still had questions. "I wanted some proof that what the pastor told me was correct". So I asked him to give me a Bible. He gave me a copy of New Testament. ”

After I started reading the New Testament, all my questions were answered in the first hundred pages. I am a well-read man. All my life, I have been reading “great books” of the world. Even when during young age, a person loves to read romantic novel, I used to read great and serious books. I soon realised that all the books Ive read earlier, are just derived from the Bible. Now I am reading the original book.”

“For example, I’ve read the autobiography of a prominent leader in India. He says that the best way to defeat your enemy is to use non-violent means. In fact, he says that if someone hits you on one cheek, offer the second one to him. When I read this in the first few pages of the Bible, I realized that this was not this man’s original idea, but that he learned this wisdom from the Bible.”

Reading the Bible is a great way to get to know who God is. It is one of the main ways he has revealed himself to the world. By reading it carefully and often, you can have a relationship with him.

"My wife and I started studying the Bible seriously," Bhupinder says. "Soon we stopped reading and following other scriptures. We started doing everything according to the Bible. Our entire life has changed. We spend a lot of time reading the word of God. We meditate on it and use it in our day to day lives."

"The Lord has also blessed us. He is using us to bring lost souls to Him in our social circle & South Asian Communities”, says Bhupinder. “We are seeing a big change in their life through physical and most importantly spiritual healings, answered prayers and quick resolution of issues by blessings from true & living Lord.”
