I hear the sound of Footsteps (Urdu/English)

Posted on 25 Sep, 2021 in Guds ord, Guds rike, Tro | 0 comments

میں قدموں کی آواز سنتا ہوں۔

یکم ستمبر کو صبح سویرے میں اپنے بھائی اور والد کے ساتھ شمالی یورپ اور شمالی امریکہ کے بڑے جانور موز کے شکار کےلیے گیا۔

موز کی تلاش کرنا واقعی دلچسپ ہے۔ پہلا موز جو میرے چھوٹے بھائی نے گولی ماری تھی وہ بہت بڑا تھا ، اس کا وزن تقریبا700 700 کلو تھا۔ موز جنگل ، طاقتور قدموں اور بہت شور سے دوڑتا ہوا آیا ، اور اس نے موز کے بڑے اور متاثر کن سینگدیکھے ، اور سمجھا کہ یہ بہت بڑا ہے ، اور اس نے سوچا: میں اسے کیسے ماروں گا جب میرا دل ہے اس طرح دھڑکنا؟ پھرموز سڑک پر پہنچا اور میرے بھائی کے سامنے کھڑا ہوا ، شاید صرف 40 میٹر ، اور اتنا بڑا ، میرے بھائی نے سوچا: میں اسےکیسے یاد کر سکتا ہوں! اسے یاد کرنا ناممکن ہے! اور اس نے اسے گولی مار دی۔

موز کو “جنگل کا بادشاہ” کہا جاتا ہے ، اور یہ واقعی ہے ، یہ ایک طاقتور اور طاقتور جانور ہے ، بڑے سینگوں والا بہت متاثرکن اور خوبصورت۔ چاہے وہ کتنا ہی طاقتور کیوں نہ ہو ، اور چلتے وقت یہ کتنا ہی شاندار اور متاثر کن ہو ، چاہے آپ کا دلکتنا ہی دھڑکنے لگے جب آپ اسے آتے ہوئے سنیں ، اس کا موازنہ بادشاہوں کے بادشاہ ، خداوند یسوع مسیح سے نہیں کیا جاسکتا۔

جب یسوع مسیح چلتے پھرتے ہیں ، آپ وہاں کھڑے ہو جاتے ہیں ، حیرت زدہ اور صرف اس کی شان اور عظمت کو دیکھ رہےہیں۔ اور جب آپ یسوع کے قدموں کی آواز سنتے ہیں تو آپ کا دل آسمانی خوشی اور خدا کے خوف سے دھڑکنے لگتا ہے۔

مجھے کئی بار یسوع کے قریب آنے کا فضل دیا گیا ہے ، یسوع میرے قریب چل رہا ہے ، اور پھر میں نے محسوس کیا کہ “یہایک بادشاہ آرہا ہے” اور میں صرف زمین پر گر کر چیخنا چاہتا تھا: مقدس ، پاک ، پاک ہے میزبانوں کا رب۔ یسوع مسیح ایکبادشاہ ہے ، لیکن فضل اور سچائی سے بھرا بادشاہ ہے۔

اور ہمارا بادشاہ واپس آنے والا ہے۔ مسیح میں ایمان رکھنے والوں کے طور پر ، ہم پہلے ہی اس کے قدموں کو سن سکتے ہیں ،ہم دیکھتے ہیں اور محسوس کرتے ہیں کہ اس کا آنا قریب ہے۔ میں کینیا 2019 کے مشن ٹرپ پر تھا ، اور میری ساتھی للیانجیکوبسن کو رب کا ایک کلام ملا۔ خداوند نے کہا: میں قدموں کی آواز سنتا ہوں۔ مجھ سے ملنے کے لیے آسمان پر خوش ہونےکے لیے تیار رہو۔

میں آپ کو ایک ایسے وقت کے بارے میں بتاؤں گا جب یسوع چلتے پھرتے آئے تھے۔ یہ 2006 کے موسم گرما میں تھا ، میں مسیحمیں صرف دو ماہ کا تھا ، ایک نوزائیدہ بچہ ، اور کچھ ہوا تھا اس لیے میں خوفزدہ تھا۔ میری والدہ نے رب کے لیے ایک مختصرسی دعا مانگی اور اس نے کہا: میں اس کے دماغ کو آرام دوں گا!

میں سونے کے لیے لیٹ گیا۔ گرمیوں میں جہاں میں رہتا ہوں چوبیس گھنٹے دن کی روشنی ہوتی ہے ، آپ آدھی رات کو بالکلٹھیک دیکھ سکتے ہیں۔ آدھی رات کو میں جاگ گیا ، اور میں نے محسوس کیا: میرے دل میں کیا خوشی ہے! میں نے سونے کےلیے واپس جانے کی کوشش کی ، لیکن میں نہیں کر سکا۔ ایک گھنٹہ بعد میں اور بھی خوشی سے بھر گیا ، اور پندرہ منٹ بعدمیرا دل آسمانی ، ناقابل بیان خوشی سے بھر گیا۔

پھر میں نے باہر سے قدموں کی آواز سنی ، بہت بھاری اور طاقتور ، ڈونک ، ڈونک ، ڈونک ، یہ ایسا ہی تھا جیسے کوئی بڑااختیار اور اعتماد والا چلتا ہوا آیا ہو۔ میں نے سوچا: وہاں کون ہے؟ یہ ایک آدمی کی طرح لگتا ہے لیکن یہ آدھی رات ہے؟ کیا یہجانور ہے؟

میں اپنے بستر سے اٹھا اور کھڑکی کی طرف بڑھا اور باہر دیکھا۔ اور میں نے سوچا: عجیب بات ہے ، وہاں کوئی نہیں ہے؟ پھراچانک سی ڈی پلیئر ، جو میرے بائیں پانچ میٹر کے فاصلے پر تھا ، خود ہی ، یسوع کے بارے میں تعریف کے گانے بجانے لگا۔

اور فوری طور پر میں نے محسوس کیا: یہ یسوع ہے! وہ وہاں کھڑا ہے اور اس نے سی ڈی پلیئر آن کر دیا ہے! میں خدا کےایسے مقدس خوف سے بھرا ہوا تھا ، اور میں نے یسوع کے بارے میں ایسی ناقابل یقین عظمت ، طاقت اور تقدس محسوس کیا ،اور میں نے سوچا: یسوع ، وہ ایک بادشاہ ہے! وہ خداوند ہمارا خدا ہے ، اور میں صرف زمین پر گر کر پکارنا چاہتا تھا: پاک ،پاک ، پاک میزبانوں کا رب ہے۔

میں اپنے بستر پر چلا گیا ، میرا دماغ اور روح کامل سکون سے ، پھر بھی وہ خوشی میرے دل کے اندر ہے ، اور اگرچہ میں خداکے خوف سے اتنا بھرا ہوا تھا ، میں نے بھی اتنا محفوظ ، اتنا محفوظ ، اتنا پیارا ، اتنا گلے لگا اور یسوع مسیح کی محبت اورفضل سے گھرا ہوا تو میں نے محسوس کیا: کچھ بھی نہیں ، کچھ بھی نہیں ، بالکل کچھ بھی مجھے تکلیف نہیں پہنچا سکتا! یہ یسوع مسیح کے سب سے شاندار اور طاقتور تجربات میں سے ایک ہے جو مجھے خدا کے فضل سے دیا گیا ہے۔

میرے پیارے بھائیوں اور بہنوں ، یسوع مسیح آ رہا ہے! ہم اس کے آنے کی نشانیاں دیکھتے ہیں اور ہم اس کے قدموں کو سنسکتے ہیں۔ الحمدللہ! الحمدللہ! وہ آ رہا ہے اور اس بار وہ برambے کے طور پر نہیں آئے گا ، اس بار وہ یہوداہ کے شیر کےطور پر آ رہا ہے۔ یسوع کو شیر اور بھیڑ کہا جاتا ہے۔ یوحنا بپتسمہ دینے والے نے کہا: دیکھو خدا کا برہ جو دنیا کا گناہ دورکرتا ہے۔ پہلی بار یسوع ظاہری طور پر ایک عام آدمی کی طرح نظر آئے ، خدا کے برambے کے طور پر ہمارے گناہوں کے لیےقربان ہونے کے لیے۔ وہ خدا کی طرف سے چھوڑا گیا ، بے بس ، حالانکہ وہ اب بھی خدا کا بیٹا تھا۔

لیکن اس بار یسوع یہوداہ کے شیر کے طور پر آ رہا ہے ، خدا کے بیٹے کے طور پر ، تمام طاقت ، اختیار میں ، اس کی شان اورعظمت میں۔ اب وہ بادشاہوں کا بادشاہ اور آقاؤں کا رب بن کر آتا ہے۔ الحمدللہ! الحمدللہ! انکشافات میں رسول یوحنا رونے لگتاہے جب کوئی بھی طومار کھولنے کے لائق نہیں ہوتا ، لیکن اسے کہا جاتا ہے: مت رو ، دیکھو ، یہوداہ کا شیر طومار کھولنے پرغالب آگیا ہے۔ (انکشافات 5: 1-5)

یسوع بطور شیر واپس آیا۔ اور اس بار وہ اپنے لوگوں کو چھڑانے آیا ہے! اس بار وہ فاتح ہے اور ہمیں فتح دلانے کے لیے! جیہاں ، مسیح میں ہماری فتح پہلے ہی ہو چکی ہے ، لیکن ہم اسے مکمل طور پر نہیں دیکھتے ، کیونکہ ہم اب بھی اس کا مذاق اڑارہے ہیں ، ستائے جا رہے ہیں اور کچھ لوگ اس کے نام کے لیے مارے گئے ہیں۔

آج ہم اکثر و بیشتر یسوع کی طرح اس دنیا کی نظر میں پہلی بار کرتے ہیں: غریب ، بے بس ، خدا کی طرف سے چھوڑا گیا ،مذاق اڑایا گیا ، ظلم کیا گیا ، اس دنیا کی کوئی قیمت نہیں اور کوئی اہمیت نہیں۔ اور اس دنیا کے طاقتور لوگ ، جیسے طالبان ،داعش ، روس کے صدر ولادیمیر پوٹن ، وہ مضبوط ، اہم اور خوفناک نظر آتے ہیں۔

لیکن جب یسوع مسیح ظہور پذیر ہوگا تو یہ سب ایک پلک جھپکنے میں بدل جائے گا۔ 1 کرنتھیوں 15:51 کہتا ہے: دیکھو ، میںتمہیں ایک راز بتاتا ہوں۔ ہم سب نہیں سوئیں گے ، لیکن ایک لمحے میں ، پلک جھپکتے میں ، آخری بگل میں ہم بدل جائیں گے۔اچانک ، ہم جیت گئے ، اور وہ شرمندہ تعبیر ہو جائیں گے۔

سویڈن میں ایک پادری نے ایک بار کہا: کچھ لوگ کہتے ہیں کہ جب یسوع واپس آئے گا تو میں جا کر اسے گلے لگاؤں گا۔ اسکے بارے میں بھول جاؤ ، ہم خدا کے خوف سے اپنے چہروں پر سجدہ کریں گے! مجھے یقین ہے کہ وہ صحیح تھا۔ پیٹموس کےجزیرے پر رسول جان کو یاد رکھیں۔ عیسیٰ مسیح جلال اور عظمت کے ساتھ اس کے سامنے نمودار ہوئے ، اور جان کہتا ہے: جب میں نے اسے دیکھا تو میں اس کے پاؤں پر مردہ ہو گیا۔ یہ ایک رسول ہے ، وہ زمین پر تین سال تک یسوع کے ساتھ چلتا رہا، اس نے کئی سال تک یسوع کو اپنے رسول کی خدمت کی ، پھر بھی ، جب وہ اسے اپنی شان میں دیکھتا ہے تو وہ اس کےپاؤں پر گر جاتا ہے۔ لہذا اگر جان نے اس طرح کا رد عمل ظاہر کیا تو ، مجھے یقین ہے کہ ہم بھی کریں گے!

اور اگر ہم ، جو یسوع مسیح کے دوست ، بچے اور بھائی کہلاتے ہیں ، اس طرح کا رد عمل ظاہر کریں گے تو اس کے دشمنوں کاکیا رد عمل ہوگا؟ امریکہ سے تعلق رکھنے والے خدا کے ایک عظیم انسان ڈیوڈ ولکرسن نے ایک بار کہا تھا: اس خوف اور دہشتکو بیان کرنے کا کوئی طریقہ نہیں ہے جو مسیح کے دشمنوں کے دلوں میں اس کے آنے پر آئے گا۔ انکشافات میں کہا گیا ہے کہبڑے آدمی ، امیر آدمی ، زمین کے بادشاہ ، وہ غاروں میں چھپ گئے اور پہاڑوں سے کہا: ہم پر گر جاؤ اور ہمیں اس کے چہرےسے چھپاؤ جو عرش پر بیٹھا ہے اور برہ کے قہر سے .

اس بار یسوع اپنے بچوں کے لیے ایک نجات دہندہ کے طور پر آیا ہے ، لیکن ان لوگوں کے لیے ایک مقدس جج کے طور پر جو اسسے تعلق نہیں رکھتے۔ اسی لیے ہم اپنے دشمنوں کو معاف کرنے اور ان کے لیے دعا کرنے کا انتخاب کرتے ہیں ، جو ہمیں تکلیفدیتے ہیں اور ہمیں ستاتے ہیں ، کیونکہ ہم نہیں چاہتے کہ ایسا کسی کے ساتھ ہو! ہم چاہتے ہیں کہ ہر کوئی بچ جائے ، یہاں تککہ وہ لوگ جو ہمیں تکلیف پہنچاتے ہیں۔ تو ہم یسوع کی طرح صلیب پر کہتے ہیں: ابا ، انہیں معاف کر دو ، کیونکہ وہ نہیںجانتے کہ وہ کیا کرتے ہیں!

یسوع مسیح کا آنا اس کے دشمنوں کے لیے دہشت کا لمحہ ہے ، لیکن ہمارے لیے ، جو یسوع سے تعلق رکھتے ہیں ، جو اس کےپیارے بچے ہیں ، ہمارے لیے یہ ایک ناقابل یقین فضل ، خوشی اور فتح کا لمحہ ہے۔ کیونکہ اب ہم شاندار فتح کو مکمل طور پردیکھیں گے اور منائیں گے! الحمدللہ! الحمدللہ! یہ لکھا ہے: مبارک ہیں وہ جنہیں برambے کے شادی کے کھانے کے لیے بلایاگیا ہے۔

یسوع چاہتا ہے کہ ہم اس کے آنے پر خوش رہیں اور خوش رہیں۔ انکشافات میں کہا گیا ہے: الحمدللہ ، خداوند قادر مطلقبادشاہی کرتا ہے! آئیے ہم خوش ہوں اور خوش ہوں اور اس کی تسبیح کریں ، کیونکہ میمنے کی شادی آچکی ہے ، اور اس کیبیوی نے خود کو تیار کرلیا ہے۔

ہمارے لیے یسوع مسیح کا آنا ایک شاندار امید ہے ، ایک وعدہ جو پورا ہو گا ، اور ہم اس پر خوش ہو سکتے ہیں ، کہ ہم یسوعمسیح کو دیکھیں گے اور ملیں گے۔ 1 پیٹر کہتا ہے کہ ہم یسوع سے پیار کرتے ہیں ، جسے ہم نے نہیں دیکھا ، اور اگرچہ ہم نےاسے نہیں دیکھا ، پھر بھی ہم یقین رکھتے ہیں ، ہم اس پر خوشی سے ناقابل بیان اور جلال سے خوش ہیں ، کیونکہ ہم اپنےایمان کا مقصد حاصل کر رہے ہیں ، ہماری روح کی نجات.

ہم ہمیشہ کے لیے جنت میں داخل ہونے کے قریب ہیں ، کیونکہ یسوع مسیح واپس آنے والے ہیں۔ تو آئیے اپنی نگاہیں یسوع پررکھیں ، آئیے مسیح میں ثابت قدم رہیں اور اس کے آنے کے وعدے پر خوش ہوں۔ آمین۔

I hear the Sound of Footsteps 

Early in the morning on the 1st of September I went with my brother and father for hunting moose, a big animal in Northern Europe and North America. 

To hunt for Moose is really exciting. The first Moose that my younger brother shot was a huge one, it weighed about 700 kg. The Moose came running through the forest, powerful steps and a lot of noise, and he saw the big and impressive horns of the Moose, and understood that it was big, and he thought: how am I going to hit it when my heart is pounding like this? Then the Moose reached the road and standing in front of my brother, maybe only 40 meters, and so big, my brother thought: how could I possibly miss it? And he didn’t miss it! 

The Moose is called “the king of the forest”, and it really is, it’s a mighty and powerful animal, very impressive and beautiful with big horns. But no matter how beautiful or powerful it is, and how majestic and impressive it is when it comes walking, no matter how beautiful it is or how much your heart starts pounding when you hear it coming, it can not be compared with the King of kings, the Lord Jesus Christ. 

When Jesus Christ comes walking, you stand there amazed, speechless, just beholding His Glory and Majesty. And when you hear the Sound of the Footsteps of the Lord Jesus Christ, your heart starts pounding, with both heavenly joy, and with the fear of God. 

A few times I have been given the grace to come very close to Jesus, Jesus has been walking close to me, and then I have felt “this is a King coming”, a King who can’t be compared with other kings, and I just wanted to fall to the ground and give Him the glory saying: Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of Hosts. Jesus Christ is a King, but a King full of grace and truth. 

And Jesus is about to come back. As believers in Christ, we can already now hear His Footsteps, we see and feel that His Coming is close. I was on a mission trip to Kenya 2019, and my companion Liliane Jakobsson received a Word from the Lord. The Lord said: I hear the Sound of Footsteps. Be ready to be raptured into the sky, to meet Me. 

I don’t know when Jesus Christ comes back, but I know that it’s close. The apostle Paul wrote two thousand years ago that the Coming of Jesus Christ was near, the day was approaching, so how much more isn’t that true today? But only God the Father knows the day and time. 

But we see all the signs of His Coming, we hear Him Coming, and I will tell you about one time when I have heard the Sound of Jesus’s Footsteps. It was in the summer of 2006, I was only two months old in Christ, a new born baby, and something had happened so I was rather scared.

(X) My mother sighed a short prayer to the Lord and He said: I will bring his mind to rest! 

I laid down sleeping. In the summer where I live it’s daylight all around the clock, you can see almost perfectly in the middle of the night. At about midnight I woke up, and I felt: what a joy in my heart! I tried to go back to sleep, but I couldn’t. An hour later I was even more filled with joy, and fifteen minutes later my heart was overflowing with heavenly, unspeakable joy. 

Then I heard Footsteps on the outside, very heavy and powerful, donk, donk, donk, it was like someone with great authority and confidence came walking. I thought: who is out there? it sounds like a man but It’s in the middle of the night? Is it an animal? 

I rose from my bed and walked to the window and looked out. And I thought: Strange, there is no one there? Then all of a sudden the CD-player, which was five meters to the left of me, started to play, all by itself, songs of praise about Jesus. 

And instantly I felt: it’s Jesus! He is standing there and He has turned on the CD-player! I was filled with such a Holy fear of God, and I felt such an incredible Majesty, Power and Holiness about Jesus, and I thought: Jesus, He is a King! He Is the Lord our God, and I just wanted to fall to the ground and cry out: Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord of Hosts. 

I walked back to my bed, my mind and soul in perfect peace, still that joy inside of my heart, and even though I was so filled with Holy fear of God, I also felt so secure, so safe, so loved, so embraced and surrounded by the love and grace of Jesus Christ so I felt: nothing, nothing, absolutely nothing can hurt me!

It is one of the most wonderful and powerful experiences of Jesus Christ that I’ve been given by the grace of God. 

My beloved brothers and sisters, Jesus Christ is Coming! We see the Signs of His Coming and we can hear His Footsteps. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! He is Coming and this time He will not come as the Lamb, this time He is Coming as the Lion of Judah. Jesus is called the Lion and the Lamb. John the Baptist said: behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. The first time Jesus came outwardly looking like an ordinary man, to be sacrificed for our sins as the Lamb of God. He looked helpless  and forsaken by God, even though He still was the Son of God. 

But This time Jesus is Coming as the Lion of Judah, as the Son of God, in all power, authority, in all of His Glory and Majesty. Hallelujah! Now He comes as the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Hallelujah! Hallelujah! In Revelations The apostle John starts weeping when no one is worthy to open the scroll, the book, but he is told: don’t weep, behold, the Lion of Judah has prevailed to open the scroll. (Revelations 5:1-5). 

Jesus comes back as a Lion. And this time He comes to deliver His people! This time He comes victorious and to give us the victory! Hallelujah! Yes, we have victory in Christ already now, but we don’t see it fully, because we are still ridiculed, persecuted and some people are also killed for His Namesake. 

Today we oftentimes look like Jesus did on the cross the first time He came, in the eyes of this world: poor, helpless, forsaken by God, ridiculed, persecuted, of no value and no importance for this world. I know that many beloved brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ in Pakistan are persecuted and under hard labor, and that other people are oppressing you. While the mighty people of this world, like the Talibans, ISIS, president Vladimir Putin of Russia, they look strong, important and fearsome, and they might push you aside or even kill us, but that’s going to change soon! 

Because when Jesus Christ appears, it will all change in the twinkling of an eye. 1 Corinthians 15:51 says: behold, I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. All of a sudden, we stand victorious, and they will be put to shame. 

A pastor in Sweden once said: some people say that when Jesus comes back, I will go and give Him a hug. But The pastor said: Forget about that, we will be on our knees, prostrate on our faces in the Holy Fear of God! I believe that he was right. Remember the apostle John on the isle of Patmos. Jesus Christ appeared to him, in Glory and Majesty, and John says: when I saw Him, I fell at His Feet as dead! That’s an apostle, he has walked with Jesus for three years on earth, he has served Jesus as His apostle for many years after His resurrection, he knows that he is loved and chosen by Christ, still, when he sees Him in His Glory, he falls down to His Feet, as dead. So if John reacted like that, I believe that we will too! 

And if we, who are called friends, children and brothers of Jesus Christ, will react like that, how will His enemies react? David Wilkerson, a great man of God from USA, once said: there is no way to describe the fear and terror that will come into the hearts of the enemies of Christ at His Coming. Revelations says that the great men, the rich men, the kings of the earth, they hid in caves and said to the mountains: fall on us and hide us from the Face of Him who sits on the Throne and from the wrath of the Lamb. 

This time Jesus Comes as a Savior for His children, but as a Holy Judge for those who don’t belong to Him. In Sweden and the Western World today we seldom speak about sin and the wrath of God, and that’s sad, because it’s a reality, and it will come upon those who don’t repent. That’s why we choose to forgive and pray for our enemies, those who hurt us and persecute us, because we don’t want that to happen to anyone! We want everyone to be saved, even those who hurt us. So We say like Jesus on the cross: Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do! 

The Coming of Jesus Christ is A moment of terror for His enemies, but for us, who belong to Jesus, who are His beloved children, to us it’s a moment of an incredible grace, joy and victory. Because now we will see and celebrate the wonderful victory in full! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! It’s written: blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. 

Jesus wants us to be happy and rejoice over His Coming. Revelations says: hallelujah, for the Lord God Omnipotent reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him Glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His Wife has made herself ready. 

To us, the Coming of Jesus Christ is a wonderful hope, a promise that will be fulfilled, and we can rejoice over it, that we will see and meet Jesus Christ. 1 Peter says that we love Jesus, whom we have not seen, and though e haven’t seen Him, yet we believe, we rejoice over Him in with joy unspeakable and full of glory, for we are receiving the goal of our faith, the salvation of our souls. 

I love the church of Pakistan so much! Encouragement! 

We are close to enter Heaven for Eternity, because Jesus Christ is about to come back. So Let’s fix our eyes on Jesus, let’s stand firm in Christ and rejoice in the promise of His Coming. Amen.
