    Bless this woman whom refused to bow down to the demons of Hinduism.
    Matthew 5:10 “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
    And also Matthew 5:11 “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.”
    I hope the west see’s the evil of bringing in these eastern beliefs such as the new age movement.Quite bringing these abominations into the Church O pastors who claim to preach the Word of God and mixed in these false beliefs.This precious sister suffered at the hands of Hinduism.But know this God provides over and beyond in rich abundance for His sheep for He is the Good Shepherd to His sheep.
    God Bless you and strengthen you mightily sister.In Jesus name.
