Vajpayee – The Theme of the Most Creative Political Ad Line Before An Election – Duke Jeyaraj brings Bible Truth starting with Vajpayee

Politicians who were natural orators(the ability to deliver non-scripted speeches and keep the audience spell-bound) – I have had great admiration for them because as a communicator of the Gospel I wanted to learn from them. There was lots of scope for me to improve as a full time speaker, I myself knew that, and so I grabbed every opportunity that came my way. And the former Prime Minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who passed away on 16 Aug 2018 was one the greatest ever natural orators in Indian Politics. Only Lalu Prasad Yadav could rival him, in my opinion. Vajpayee once said, “I am on a search for truth”. I remember quoting him say that in my Gospel presentation to the students of Adiaman College of Engineering, Hosur in my Christmas Gospel message to them in the year 1998 before quoting Jeremiah 29:13 from the Bible which says that the God of the Bible fulfils the desires of honest, sincere seekers and reveals himself to them. One of the best ever and most creatively crafted political advertisements in independent India was coined by Vajpayee’s party before one of the general elections in India in the 1990s. It went this way: ‘abki bari atal bihari’ (now it is the chance of Atal Bihari Vajpayee to become PM). And he did become PM! The word ‘bari’ reminds me of another truth which the Bible teaches: it is everyone ‘bari’ to die (till the time Jesus returns back to the earth to judge everyone who lived no this planet). When I read Hebrews 9:27 in the Bible, “Man is destined to die once and after that face judgement,” I am motivated to be ready for my own death which can come anytime. ‘Duke Ka Death ka Bari Zaroor Ayye Ga!’ (The turn for Duke to die will certainly come – please forgive me if I made a mistake with regards to my Hindi here) – I tell myself. So, I get ready for that day. Jesus is the best preparation to face death, because he is the only one who died and rose again and never died a natural death again! So, let us all turn from sin (Luke 13:1-5) and come to Jesus in faith (John 1:12) ! Now (2 Cor. 6:1-2)! – Duke Jeyaraj.
