We know that the world is suffering through religious hate, terrorism, injustice, poverty, and persecution. We see wars, famine, human trafficking, terror, families falling apart, drug and alcohol addictions? Most of the wars reason is religious hate and greed. Jesus tells us, “For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander,” (Matthew 15:19). And if the “heart” caused these problems and sins, then we need to change the “Hearts”. We know that only God the Creator can truly change the heart. We as ambassadors for the Kingdom of Peace have this responsibility to share this Gospel with the world. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the solution to the problems of the world. We can help bring an end to suffering in the world. Kaleem with other passionate leaders started the mission of HLF-Generation Of Peacemakers.
Kaleem Shahzad was born into a Christian family, His grand father “Hazara Singh” (son of Fakhar Singh) belonged to a Sikh Family who worked in the British-Indian Army and accepted Jesus Christ as their savior and converted into christianity. Kaleem grew up in the Christian faith and as a child was very active in Church activities.
But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace, To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: (Galatians 1:15-16)
He was 11 years old, when he was encountered by the love of God. God showed him His grace and Love and revealed to him what he was called and appointed to do. He started to share this life changing experience with his muslim friend. The touch of the Holy Spirit and the knowledge of Truth led them to know WHO GOD IS AND HOW MUCH HE LOVES MANKIND THAT HE GAVE HIS WORD (JESUS CHRIST) FOR US, WHO WAS CRUCIFIED FOR MANKIND TO SAVE ALL OF US FROM THE SIN AND ETERNAL DEATH. He and his friend saved their pocket money and visited other places to preach the gospel. God poured out his spirit on many lives and used them for many miracles.
They started to suffer for Christ and his friend was poisoned by his own family, but God miraculously saved his life and they had to leave their city. There were many ways God used him to change many lives, he was offered wealth, extravagant gifts and fame if he would leave Christianity and stop preaching the gospel. But He knew without God’s Love in our hearts we are nothing, a human was created in the image of God, to love, to be kind, to have wisdom, and to be passionate to serve Humanities and to save other lives.
God showed him a big vision about the End Times; where millions of people were worshiping the Lord Jesus Christ. As in his own country 95% of the population are Muslims and 2.5% are Christians, who are oppressed, killed and persecuted publicly, their homes, churches and Christians have been burnt alive in Pakistan by Extremists Muslim mobs. Extremists muslim suicide bombers are doing blast and killing other muslims too. Until now, It seems impossible But with God all things are possible, and He is changing the hearts of extremist muslims and filling their hearts with the love of Jesus Christ “The Messiah”, God changed many Pakistani muslims and muslims around the world and they became followers of Jesus Christ. Though only God has the power to change the hearts of millions of muslims and they do not persecute their fellow humans. We only have the responsibility to “Preach The Gospel” to them and in the entire world to end the suffering.
“After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.” Revelation 7:9-10
Kaleem believes “Not We, not our love, not the donations of billions of dollars for the welfare can change the hearts of extremists, only the Love of God can replace hate. No matter where you are on the journey, there is a plan and a purpose to what you experience. God created this beautiful universe and He blessed man with Wisdom, We can make this world beautiful again, If we all will start to follow “YESHUA” JESUS CHRIST and start to Love each other as one human family.”
A Mandate To change The World
“And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. (Mark 12:30-31)
Teachings in Torah:
“And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest. And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and stranger: I am the LORD your God.
Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another. And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.
Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning. Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the LORD. Ye shall do no unrighteousness in judgment: thou shalt not respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty: but in righteousness shalt thou judge thy neighbour. Thou shalt not go up and down as a talebearer among thy people: neither shalt thou stand against the blood of thy neighbour: I am the LORD.
Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him. Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD. (Leviticus 19:9-18)
