About Sadhu Aiya

I, SADHU. C. SELVA RAJ (AIYA), author of this precious book "ONE GOD !! ONE PEOPLE !! " - "AN INVALUABLE COMPENDIUM OF GOD'S SECRETS" with the immense grace of the LORD GOD, was born in a family, which was Christian in name alone. I too was living as a nominal Christian. I was a great sinner and I had no qualities and spiritual experiences of a true Christian. In Tamil 'Selva Raj' means 'Kingdom of heaven' (St. Matthew 4:17).

When I was in the second year of my MSc. Degree course in 1972 at Madras (Chennai) Christian College, Thambaram, I lost peace of mind and it was terrible and unbearable to me. When I had completed my college studies, I used to go to the LORD's church at Malavilai and listen to the preaching of Sadhu. G. Devanesan (Aiya), I was touched by the LORD. On hearing his preaching, I repented and wept for the sins I had committed, and I prayed for forgiveness of sins and salvation. I confessed my sins to the LORD GOD, JESUS CHRIST and prayed to GOD day and night and for many days, with tears and weeping and humility. The LORD mercifully blessed me with forgiveness of sins and with salvation, the deliverance from sins and with sanctification and experiences of holy life. I was totally freed from all sorrows, troubles, heaviness, grief and all pains, physical and mental. I was filled with divine peace, happiness and consolation. I was totally converted and redeemed by JESUS CHRIST. Then, I became a believer in HIS church after receiving the baptism by total immersion in water in the name of the FATHER, the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT. As I lacked eagerness and seriousness, I had not received the anointing of the HOLY SPIRIT.

As the glorious Word of GOD says, "Seek ye first the kingdom of GOD, and HIS righteousness; and all these things (worldly blessings) shall be added unto you" (St. Matthew 6:33), I began to seek the kingdom of GOD and HIS righteousness. GOD blessed me both worldly and spiritually. The LORD granted me success in my MSc. Degree course. The LORD miraculously healed my tonsils problem, without any medical treatment or operation. The LORD blessed me with health of body, mind, and soul. The LORD gave me a life of immense peace, immense consolation, and good health. And I wished to work as a government servant. Knowing my desire, the LORD according to HIS will gave me a government job in the Tamil Nadu Revenue Department through Public Service Commission. I worked in the Collector's office and some other offices in Kanniya Kumari District.

When I was thus working as a government servant, Sadhu. G. Devanesan (Aiya) told me about GOD's calling for me to serve GOD. Later I too understood by HIS grace that it was GOD's eternal, immensely glorious will for me to serve GOD. But to serve the LORD, a man has to renounce all things and abhor them. He must live as a sage or hermit or monk. With a perfect knowledge of these things, I resigned my Firka Revenue Inspector Post on 1.11.1976, even though I had at that time passed all the tests required for promotion as Deputy Tahsildar. I believed that the job of serving JESUS CHRIST is greater than all other jobs in the world. It is a job of heavenly government, offered to man by the GOD of heaven. It is a job no man can obtain by himself. It is a job greatly glorious and blessed. A man cannot inherit heaven, if he does not perform this duty according to the will of GOD. "Not every one that saith unto ME, LORD, LORD, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of MY FATHER which is in heaven." St. Matthew 7:21. I understood and believed this great fact and resigned my worldly government job, for inheriting the life in heaven. I understood that heaven is the extremely precious thing for man, it is the precious pearl, a great wealth and a great treasure. I had a perfect knowledge about great glories and blessings of heaven. Therefore I found nothing great in the worldly government job. Heaven seemed great and precious to me. Praise The LORD! Alleluia!

When I had resigned my government job, I began to pray and wait on the LORD to receive the HOLY SPIRIT and to attain the worthiness to serve the LORD; I prayed also for the grace of the LORD. No man can serve the LORD without divine strength and divine grace. I offered myself totally to the LORD at HIS most holy feet. I dedicated myself totally to the LORD and I prayed to the LORD; I begged the LORD; I pleaded with the LORD in great grief and sorrow and with a heavy heart; I wept and shed tears with humility for obtaining HIS mercy and HIS HOLY SPIRIT. The LORD heard my prayers and granted HIS mercy. The LORD filled me with HIS HOLY SPIRIT with the sign of other tongues. The LORD anointed me with HIS HOLY SPIRIT. The LORD baptized me with HIS HOLY SPIRIT and blessed me immensely by HIS grace. I was filled with great joy and happiness greater than before. Then, by the will of GOD I joined HIS church on 1.3.1977 and began to serve GOD as GOD's minister.

According to the will of GOD, Sadhu. G. Devanesan (Aiya) ordained me to perform the very important affairs of our church. After the death of Sadhu. G. Devanesan (Aiya), the LORD according to HIS merciful will has appointed me as the principal minister of our church. The LORD has given me many glorious promises. According to HIS glorious promises, the LORD is performing glorious works in HIS glorious church, by healing the sickness and illness of many people and casting out devils from many people.

The LORD spoke many things about me and gave many glorious promises to me by prophecy through Sadhu. G. Devanesan (Aiya) on 24.5.1977. The LORD said,

" Who is he? Who is he? He is the one, chosen before the foundation of the world. I knew him before I formed him in the womb. I called him even when he was in his mother’s womb. I separated him while he was still in his mother’s womb. Do you think you are a little one? You are not a little one. You are great, great to the world. Go in this might of yours. Have I not sent you? I shall give you extraordinary wisdom; I shall give you extraordinary mind; I shall give you extraordinary knowledge. I shall perform great things by you and I am with you."

In this prophecy, the LORD GOD, JESUS CHRIST said to me as HE said to Gideon, and by this prophecy, HE sent me as HE sent Gideon. The call of Gideon is mentioned in Judges 6:11-16. The LORD GOD looked upon Gideon and said,

" Go in this thy might (might of yours), and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee?" Judges 6:14

" Have not I sent thee?" means " Am I not sending you?"

Again, in a vision, the LORD GOD, JESUS CHRIST has revealed to Sadhu. G. Devanesan (Aiya) about my writings, viz., "THE DOCUMENT REVEALING GOD'S SECRET". This rare book "ONE GOD !! ONE PEOPLE !! " - "AN INVALUABLE COMPENDIUM OF GOD'S SECRETS" has been written by me according to this divine revelation.

Now, I am a small witness among all the witnesses of GOD and I am a holy witness of the LORD GOD, JESUS CHRIST. The LORD GOD, JESUS CHRIST is leading me in this world as HIS holy witness. As it has been said by the LORD JESUS CHRIST:

" ...Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed." St. John 20:29

The LORD has blessed me and continues to bless me greatly. The LORD GOD, JESUS CHRIST has made me a spiritual father for HIS children and people affectionately call me 'ABBA' and 'AIYA'. 'Abba' is an Aramaic domestic term by which the father was called in the most affectionate intimacy of the family. Aramaic is a form of Hebrew language that was spoken during the time of JESUS CHRIST. The word 'Abba' is used in India also. The LORD GOD, JESUS CHRIST is immensely blessing and leading HIS church, in HIS glorious ways.
