Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus, I write this foreword with humbleness, knowing that it is a great privilege and most rewarding experience of my life. To summarize it in one statement would be that I stood before God in Zion and was found worthy to be judged by Him. (Psalm 84:7) This is my testimony in honour of the Son of Man into whom God came down and revealed Himself, in order for God's created being to attain or regain the position from the fallen status of Adam who was created in God's own image. Today, and at this moment, the world stands on the threshold of sudden destruction and annihilation as a result of impending judgment, because the Bible and other holy books like Koran and Gita must become completely fulfilled. In the words, 'Sic Transit Gloria Mundi’, so passes away the glory of the world, for we all know that the world has carved its own glory on many things. When the decree of divine judgment shortly intervenes, it won't be necessary for any legislative sessions or organized groups to chose. But nature makes no leap without time and purpose and everything occurs according to the will and plan of the Almighty God. Where we humans fail to hear His thundering call, nature follows His whisper of command.
This biography of R.P. Lawrie (who we fondly with great respect and reverence call Ayyah) explains fully and in detail many things of great interest to those who desire to live a life that is pleasing to God. Being acquainted with his ministry for many years, I can assure the reader with a few thoughts and impressions of my own concerning this man, the Son of Man, the Son of David, the Son of God, the Lord God and the Lord God Almighty. Each one of these dispensations was vindicated with lightning, clouds and rainbows. To some this might seem like blasphemy. But when you are a true seed of Abraham like Nathaniel, when the call of the Word passes by, the light transforms and removes all doubt and unbelief which is the true enlightenment that leads to the path of righteousness.
My upbringing was of the Christian background. When I first received the moon landing messages of Ayyah I literally hid them, for fear that here is the second coming of Christ for whom I have waited and preached to many, in hope to lead them to the event which has already transpired on the moon landing day. As it is mentioned, He will come like a thief. While history made a mark, God also made His silent entrance to the scene that would set the stage for the fulfillment of all prophecies. From Adam to the last church age messenger William Branham, all pointed to this ministry of Ayyah, God manifested in the flesh. Where God Himself made the Bible an open book so that a child could understand, this simplicity of God's Word was complicated by the scholars highly educated society of the world. When they tried to explain the meaning of life and to navigate through life's river, the laws and ordinances prohibited. But the Lord God came on the scene and offered a power boat, Himself, and the key, the Sacrifice for you and me in the Supreme Sacrifice before the foundation of the world, to take us across the river where no storm can conquer. In this simple way he has taught metaphorically speaking hundreds of lessons.
If human foresight had the capability beyond the present and or the capacity to look into his own spiritual realm even a glimpse, that would help channel one's mind into spirituality to do God's perfect will: But in reality we know that man's knowledge and foresight has only failed. Apostle Paul has said that man could not go into the rest of God because of unbelief. (Hebrews 3:18-19) Jesus said, ‘Having eyes you see not, having ears you hear not’. Again Jesus said, ‘You sin because you believe not on me.’ (John 16:9)
Our earthly life is like a leaf fallen on the ground. It looks just like the one attached to the limb of the tree which supplies the life giving flow. Once the detachment occurs, life is lost and the leaf remains dead. This holds true where upon in my own life and experience I would like to relate for several years I followed my own beliefs. I had a zeal for God to serve Him but not according to knowledge. I was searching for that pearl of great price thinking that service to God will lead me there. I was 21 years of age when I had the salvation experience and received the anointing of the Holy Spirit. With a great zeal to increase my knowledge I joined a Bible College and Bible University and my mother proudly hung all of my diplomas and certificates as trophies of accomplishment. I had a good paying job with which I supported a tent ministry and radio broadcasting. With the gift of music and singing for many years I was able to testify for the glory of God. But God winked at my ignorance, yet He blessed and answered many a prayer. After reading the moon landing messages I more or less came to the realization that my time spent in self styled nondenominational deed was doing God a service without His will. By renouncing and considering them as dung as written in Philemon 3:8, this is the manner in which I was brought to new life and a new creature in Christ Jesus.
In September, 1971, in preparation to meet the Mighty Angel of Rev. 10, myself and my mother Nancy McKinney sold our meager possessions and went to Manujothi Ashram in South India, and spent the next five years learning and witnessing spiritual deliverance. Each day brought a new light and insight to dark corners of the soul, whereby the spirit revived and strengthened and soared high as an eagle.
The Adamic Nature of seeing and believing was changed to the divine nature of believing and seeing. The way to the Tree of Life was kept by the flaming sword which tumeth every way, (Genesis 3:24) making the 'way to the garden of Eden’ impossible to enter. But the Lord God who placed the cherubim at the gate also made a way to re-enter from this fallen state. So fear God and give glory to Him. Seek Him while you still have a chance. For He is most gracious and long suffering, returneth no one who cometh to Him. May God bless and keep you and make His face shine upon you.
