Welcome to Jesus Power Ministries

My Stormy Journey as I crossed the Wide River!!

I was born in a Hindu orthodox and fanatic Hindu Brahmin (priests) family as Jay Kishor . For centuries we have been pundits (hindu priests) in various temples all over India. As a tradition where atleast one child was dedicated to God and to be of service in the temples as a pundit , I was chosen at a very young age of 12 years. I became a pundit and was bestowed upon the name , Pandit Janki Das. I travelled extensively…Gained a lot of name , fame and money. I was hardly 15 years when I became a guru as well & had hundreds of disciples. I was a very devout priest. I was Whenever I visited the devotees homes, they even washed my feet as I was held in high esteem as a very pious and holy priest. I was invited by the big-wigs of bollywood, industrialists to perform pujas for their well being etc. I started earning a lot of money too!

But one afternoon in April 2004………. As I was walking down a road in Andheri, Mumbai, I heard someone calling out to me, “ JANKI DAS”!!! I stopped, looked around, there was no one! I started walking…. And this time the voice said, JANKI DAS!!!!! Again there was no one! I continued walking, but this time the voice came like a THUNDER, “ Janki Das , you go everywhere but why don’t you come to me?”Even before I could realise I was drawn towards a Cross by the side of the road…and yes the voice kept on repeating itself and it WAS COMING FROM THE CROSS! My eyes were fixed on the cross and as if driven by some DIVINE POWER, I knelt down and uttered, “Halleluia”, a word I had never heard before!!!!!! I did not know Jesus at all!

I went home, and now as though the whole world had changed. Nothing could interest me, I was disturbed as to why the poor man was crucified on the cross. Next morning I went to the cross removed the crown of thorns and washed the cross with milk….After a few days I attended a prayer service and when I came to know that the man hanging on the cross was Jesus and that he had died because of me and to save the world, that day I decided that from then on I WOULD LIVE ONLY FOR JESUS! My Parents threw me out of the house, they disowned me. BUT I HAD ALREADY DECIDED TO LIVE FOR JESUS…and nothing could stop me! When I accepted Jesus as the Lord and King of my life, I went through a lot of Hardships! But the Love of Christ that I had in my Heart overcame every trouble that I went through.

I went to Divine Retreat Centre, Potta and stayed there, and on 15th August 2005 I received my baptism and I was christened, Mario Das. Since then, I have been preaching the Word of God. I have travelled far and wide preaching the Good News, as the word says, “Who, then, can separate us from the Love of Christ? Can trouble do it, or hardships or persecutions or hunger or poverty or danger or death? “ Romans 8, 35.

“ For I am certain that nothing can separate us from his love: neither death nor life, neither angeis nor other heavenly rulers or powers, neither the present nor the future, neither the world above nor the world below—there is nothing in all creation that will ever be able to separate us from the love of God, which is ours through Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8, 38,39.

God bless you!

Yours in Christ,

Bro Mario
