( Testimony of BROTHER KUNAL MUKHERJEE)
Experience of a new life of redemption through the Blood of the Lamb and forgiveness of sins came to KUNAL MUKHERJEE – (one born of staunch Hindu Brahmin parents in West Bengal) at the age of 42 in a miraculous way on 31st May 1994. Despite having everything in the world – so to say, big jobs, well-to-do family, high education, chequered status and position in the society — Kunal did not have one thing: PEACE. By virtue of his upbringing in religious ambience, Kunal developed in him an unquenchable hunger to know God and the supernatural power. That longing for God, made him ramble around the whole country from pillar to post. Visited all the renowned places of pilgrimage. Had many inter-personal discourses on Religion, Spirituality, and Divinity et al with many prominent saints, monks, and priests of varied religious strata. Had even gone into the vortex of personally practicing occultism, black magic and utmost banalities of mysticism.
Dissatisfied at every endeavor, Kunal finally accepted a guru at Rishikesh (UP) and tried to look into his long cherished desire of knowing God come true. Nothing could give Kunal the optimum yield till came 16th January 1994, when he faced a mild cardiac disorder while at work. Having returned home from the ICCU, Kunal started introspecting his life and deeds vis-Ã -vis achievements. At one particular point of time he paused to understand that he was a sinner and needed to lead a sinless life. Five months from then (during these days, his financial condition went haywire as he had lost his job) the excruciating pangs of mundane reality started biting Kunal every moment of his existence.
On 30th May 1994, an utterly shattered and dejected Kunal Mukherjee proceeded towards Lallu Bhai Park of the Andheri West (Mumbai) to find an exit from the life of despondence and despair. In line with his erstwhile religious faith, Kunal wanted to have a second birth. He chose to commit suicide. At that particular point of time, he met somebody who was meditating on the Words of the Living God. Through a pedantic tete-a-tete, or a religious discourse, for that matter, Kunal came to understand that it was not the body, but the soul that needed regeneration. It touched him. Hungry to derive more on the subject, and not knowing what was in store for him, Kunal went to see Mr. Terry Athaide the next day as advised. After a prolonged debating process of religious annihilation, a disgruntled Kunal virtually allowed Terry to pray for him.
Halleluiah! At that appointed moment (Isaiah 49:8) , the eternal Saviour by the power of His shed-blood (Hebrews 9:22), and of the Holy Ghost (Titus 3:5) performed the WORK OF SALVATION in the life of that bonded Hindu Brahmin, a deadly drunkard, a staunch black-magician, an unfaithful husband, and all that he was. Kunal experienced the love of JESUS CHRIST the MESSAIAH, Who died, was buried and resurrected for him. Immediately, the powerful Word of God, which is sharper than two-edged-sword, discerned the thoughts and intents of Kunal’s heart (Hebrews 4:12).
KUNAL ENTERED THE NEW PASTURE OF HIS LIFE THROUGH THE DOOR OF JESUS CHIRST (John 10:9).
GLORY TO HIM,
“Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son; in Who we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins.”
Colossians 1: 13,14
The Eternal God has been faithfully preserving Kunal for last 12 years through many strange happenings, many fiery trials for His glory (I Peter 4:12). In January 2003, having been directly called to be a worker in the vineyard, a laborer in the harvest-field of the Lord, Kunal put aside all worldly glamour and paid heed to His calling (Colossians 4:17). Today, Kunal uncompromisingly carries out the mandate of Great Commission (Acts. 1:8). God uses him mightily for the extension of His kingdom, establishing His commandment as it is in Mark 16: 15,17 &18. Mala, his wife (a woman, gifted with the Spirit of vision, discernment and travailing) supports her husband with persistent intercessions. Even two young sons – KUSHAL & KUNTAL stand steadfast in every possible way.
