About Jesus Comes Ministry
One of the apostles so mightily used by God in these last days is Bro. D. John Rabindranath, through his “Jesus Comes” Ministry.
The Herald of Jesus Comes
Strange are the ways in which God calls for his Ministry the men He needs. That was how He called young Rabindranath in his twenties at a moment of crisis in his life, made him resign in 1960 a teaching job he had been doing for 4 years and enter an Ashram (orphanage) with a view to serve God full time, as an evangelist.
On 9th May 1963, he had a vision of the Lord who appeared in person and commanded him to preach His Second Coming. Even as John the Baptist was chosen to preach the coming of the Lord. Bro. D. John Rabindranath was chosen to preach the Second coming of Jesus.
Apostle to the Gentiles
7th October 1969 was a red letter day in the life of Bro. D. John Rabindranath. On that day the Lord Jesus Christ commanded him to go on an independent mission to preach the Gospel to the gentiles.
There were 3 associates who accompanied him from place to place, as the Lord instructed them. The main feature of the ministry was to visit villages, preach the Gospel and offer prayers for the sick, the destitute, the poor and the needy. He preached in more than 3,200 villages.
In 1965 Bro. D.John Rabindranath had the rare opportunity of an interview with the then President of India, Dr. Radhakrishnan, at the Rashtrapathi Bhavan, New Delhi. One outstanding question the President asked was, “Why do you insist that Christ alone is the living God?” Brother replied, “There are many luminous bodies in the sky,the moon and the stars radiating light. But they are all eclipsed by the radiance of the Sun. Even so Christ, who is the light of the world eclipses all other angels”. In the year 1972, Bro. D. John Rabindranath, with his associates preached in the Andaman Islands, directed by the Spirit of Jesus Christ. It was in the same year that the Lord commanded him to preach the Gospel in the churches and also to give messages of His Second Coming, in the cities, towns and villages.
In the year 1973, Bro. D. John Rabindranath with his team visited Israel, Cyprus, Lebanon, Bahrain and Kuwait. In 1974, he and his team toured over Kuwait, Bahrain, U.K., U.S.A. and Canada including Newfoundland.

In all these places, messages on the Second Coming and Gospel were given, Prayers were offered for the sick and counselling given wherever sought. For the second time, Bro. D. John Rabindranath entered into the Rashtrapathi Bhawan, Delhi.
In the same year Bro. D. John Rabindranath had an interview with the former President of India, Mr. Sanjeeva Reddy, regarding the Freedom of Religion Bill banning all religious propaganda which was just then awaiting for the presidential assent. Bro. D. John Rabindranath, who represented all the Churches of South India along with some Christian leaders of other organizations, effectively prevented the President from giving his assent to the bill. Bro. D. John Rabindranath has since then made missionary sojourns to countries overseas, such as Sri Lanka, Singapore, Dubai, Sharja, Kuwait (9 times), Al-Ain, Ras-Al-Khima, Ajman, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Muscat and many other countries.

We conduct three days fasting prayers in the big Prayer Hall in the Jesus Comes Garden in the second week – Thursday, Friday and Saturday of every month. Many thousands are coming to the Garden to attend these fasting prayers and the Prayer Hall can accommodate more than 4,000 people. Till this day, 11 people rose from death. God gave His servant the privilege to enter into heaven 5 times and once into the underworld where there are five chambers and millions of people are being tormented day and night.
