The following account of the life and ministry of Brother R.Paulaseer Lawrie Muthukrishna, a native of South India, and at the time of this writing living at the Manujothi Ashram near Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu, South India, is an important document. It is important because the man it deals with is important. He is the most important man in the whole history of the world. To be explicit, the greatest human being who ever lives.
Of course this statement will be challenged by the great majority of the inhabitants of the earth at this time. Therefore this is the most notable biography ever compiled, and the reader is invited to examine this life carefully. This man is destined shortly to become the absolute monarch of the whole world during the period of the Millennium, and thenceforth forever through all Eternity.
The Old Testament and New Testament are replete with prophecies concerning him. He is the Root and Offspring of David, the Righteous Branch, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Man-Child of Rev.12 who will rule the world with a rod of iron. He is the long - awaited Messiah, the Son of Man, the Son of God, the Son of David. Read II Samuel 7; Psalm 89; Jeremiah 33:17; Psalm 72 and dozens of other Scriptures concerning this man, who is a direct descendant of King David - in his blood line and from his loins. R.Paulaseer Lawrie is the man to fulfill these great promises of God given by all the Prophets as "Thus saith the Lord".
It is realized that the above statements are not in accord with the present day conceptions of the nominal Christians of the Laodicean cold and lukewarm denominations. So, for those who really are seeking the truth, it is essential to understand that this great man who is to be the ruler of all nations, and who will appear at the Mount of Olives to defeat the armies of the world and save Jerusalem and all Israel, has to be a blood offspring from King David, a direct descendant from David's loins, according to Isaiah 11:1, 10; Jeremiah 23:15, 22 and scores of other Scriptures.
Also it is necessary to understand that all of the Jews (Babylonian Talmud Jews and the BIBLE JEWS), who are recognized as such, are only a small percentage of the real blood-offspring of the tribes of Jacob, most of whom are now hidden and dispersed throughout the world. Especially it is true that there must be a very large group of the blood line of David and Levi in the world but not recognized as Jews; that is, from the three tribes, Judah, Levi and Benjamin, who make up Judah. Jer. 33:22 - "As the host of Heaven cannot be numbered so will I multiply the seed of David my servant and the Levites that minister unto me". And Isaiah 63:16 - "Doubtless thou art our father though Abraham be ignorant of us and Israel acknowledge us not: thou O Lord art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting". It must be realized that there is a vast number of the dispersed and lost tribes of Israel, scattered over the whole earth who do not know they are Israelites.
It will come as no surprise then to learn that in the area where Bro.Lawrie's forefathers lived, is a group of people who for many years have claimed that they are the direct offspring of Nathan (Natan) the Son of David and that they are of the tribe of Judah. Bro.Lawrie belongs to this sect. In Jer. 29:6 we find in the Prophet's letter to the captives at Babylon, God ordered him to write: "Take ye wives and beget sons and daughters: and take wives for your sons and give your daughters to husbands that ye may bear sons and daughters: that ye may be increased there and not diminished"; in other words to take wives of the land. It makes no difference who the wives were, as the blood line is carried forward through the husbands only. From Babylon many of these Jews must have come to India, since at that time there was a mainland connecting India with Chaldea called Lemuria, which according to history, sank in the sea. Since this dispersion started over 2600 years ago, a people who lived in the humid hot climate of South India will have taken a much darker tan. All this information is for those who have an unchristian color prejudice, since Bro.Lawrie is not a white man. Two years exposed to this blazing sun will turn any white man to a much darker shade. You can understand that 1000 or more years will change the pigment in a white man's skin, until he is no longer a white man; and this coloration is inherited by his children. Remember that we have all descended from Noah, and skin coloration is due to climate and sun. We do not know the color of Noah.
Furthermore Lam. 4:7-8 -- "Her Nazarites were purer than snow, they were whiter than milk, they were more ruddy, in body than rubies, their polishing was of sapphire: Their visage is (now) blacker than a coal; they are not known in the streets". And Song of Solomon 1:6 -- "Look not upon me, because I am black, because the sun hath looked upon me".
The fact that God has chosen a non-white man to be the great coming ruler of the world is a clear indication of how He feels toward those who harbour racial and colour prejudice. It is also evident that a great portion of the population in American and England and Western Europe are the offspring of Ephraim and Manasseh, Joseph's sons, who were blessed with prosperity by Jacob and called by his name "Israel", and that many of these are blood-line Israelites although not aware of it. God is gathering his chosen people from the far corners of the earth.
BRANHAM THE FORE RUNNER
Another important matter which dovetails with this great end-time message of the Seven Thunders is the inspired ministry of William Branham, a mighty vindicated Prophet, whose Prophetic message was preached for about 33 years. His ministry was fully proven by thousands of healings and five persons raised from the dead, as well as the gift of discernment to know and to reveal the very thoughts of the hearts of his audiences. In addition to this he preached a separation from the luke-warm and cold Churches, and called all Christians to come out of the denominations. Thus on a Sunday afternoon in June 1933, on the North bank of the Ohio river at Jeffersonville Indiana, USA, and directly across the river from Louisville, Kentucky, William Marrion Branham, vindicated Prophet of God with the spirit of Elijah, was in the process of baptising several hundred persons while thousands of persons were watching on the bank. As he was baptising the 17th, suddenly a great strong light appeared overhead and a loud and frightening voice spoke from the light saying, "William Branham! As John the Baptist was the forerunner of the first coming, your message will forerun the second coming of Christ!" People screamed, others fainted or ran from the place in fear; and this incident was reported throughout America by the news services.
On June 18, 1969, flames of fire came from the eyes of Brother Lawrie, as he was preaching near Dayton, Ohio. Clarence Holsinger, an unconverted man, and in sin, saw the flames come from his eyes. And then Bro.Lawrie was transformed into a glorious person and spoke to Bro.Holsinger and said, "I will not allow you to turn your head until you accept Jesus as your Saviour". He immediately tried to turn his head and could not move it until he accepted Jesus as his Saviour. The author was present at this meeting and talked personally with Mr.Holsinger and verifies this fact.
Regarding the incident of fire coming from his eyes as seen by Bro.Holsinger, Bro.Lawrie himself was unaware that this was happening except that he felt a terrific anointing as he preached on the 23rd Psalm. Also it was observed especially by the writer, that he was for most of the sermon looking almost exclusively at Mr.Holsinger. Bro.Lawrie was unable to sleep that night due to the anointing.
At this point it is appropriate to notice a few references concerning flames from the eyes: Dan. 10:6 -- His body also was like beryl, and his face as the appearing of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass: and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.
Rev. 1:14 -- His head and his hairs were white like wool, as snow: and his eyes were as a flame of fire.
Rev. 2: 18 -- And unto the angle of the Church in Thyatira write; These things saith the son of God, who hath his eyes like a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass.
Rev. 10:1 to 4 -- And I saw another mighty angel come down from Heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was at it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot upon the earth. And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from Heaven saying unto me, seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
Rev. 19:12 -- His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns: and he had a name written that no man knew, but he himself.
Of what other person in the history of mankind has it ever been said that flames of fire emitted from his eyes, either in the Bible or in secular history? The references above definitely point to the one so often spoken of as the physical offering of David, the coming great ruler of the whole world for all Eternity.
