Rakhi Sawant

5 02 2010

It was such a privilege and joy seeing Rakhi Sawant (film actress) confess about her strong faith in the Lord Jesus before millions of viewers on the Indian TV that went live around the world recently.

For the first time in the history of Indian television a known celebrity, Rakhi Sawant, chose her life partner in a televised reality show named “Rakhi Ka Swayamvar”. Rakhi prayed to Lord Jesus on TV before choosing her would-be-husband from final contestants.Her confession of strong faith in Lord Jesus was such a powerful evangelism message for all, especially in India as she comes from a Hindu background.Here’s detail of her interview with Malvika Nanda of Hindustan Times newspaper published on August 2, 2009.

What’s your idea of God?

God is everywhere, for me I find him in Jesus.

Do you make a distinction between Religion and spirituality?

Religion is created by man but spirituality comes from within.

Do you feel that something / someone keeps you protected?

Yes, Jesus loves me, He cares for me and always protects and guides me.

How do you practice spirituality in your personal life?

I read the Holy Bible everyday and apply its teachings to my daily life. God is very important part of my life. I connect with Him everyday.

Who or what are your spiritual ideals / inspirations?

Jesus is my inspiration.

Please define what ‘happiness’ means to you.

Happiness is finding contentment with whatever you have. You can find happiness when you are at peace with yourself and you can find happiness in God.

What’s your personal solution for communal harmony in India?

Love everyone around you just as you love your own self. Treat people around you just as the way you would want them to treat you.

Do you have a mind talisman?

Spending time with Jesus in prayer gets my mind refreshed, anytime.

If Rakhi Sawant has accepted and openely confessed about Lord Jesus Christ – it should be Glory to the Lord. For God nothing is impossible. Rakhi is a celebrity hence, it will be uneasy to absorbe for many. Many great celebrities including films, politicial, industrialists may join and openely confess in the days to come – but then it is the work of God – which is a miracle for the world and people who does not know the Living God.

I would like to congratulate you and welcome to the “FAMILY OF JESUS”. Of course your past shows made many youngster to fall into temptation but may now you become the best example among the Bollywoods. May His grace always abound you. I dont know what the world thinks of you but Jesus looks at you still as His beloved. God bless you.

Well all our comments here, definitely shows that there has been a positive or negative effect. Few may doubt in Rakhi’s confession and few may agree, but we can only have a point of view we should not conclude. If God’s spirit have really worked in her it will be wrong to doubt. Rakhi, if new in the Lord will definitely take time to grow spiritually, learn God’s Word and testify and that will be inspirational for all. We should pray that God bind her in HIS amazing grace and love, then we will definitely see a big transformation in her life and the world will be amazed. Its not about counting the souls but taking joy of the single soul that gets saved, coz Lord also takes joy.

“He died not for men, but for each man. If each man had been the only man made, He would have done no less.” – C.S.Lewis

The Mission of Lord Jesus Christ coming to this earth is to save man from his sins and restore him to the Kingdom of God. This is not possible with our efforts but by the power of the Holy Spirit which He has sent for us. He dwells with us and whoever welcomes Him, will show the Way, the Truth and and Life which is Jesus Christ himself. You become a new creation and receive a new life. Its a mystery. Welcome Rakhi to the family of believers. Don’t worry about what the world speaks. The world spoke about Jesus too and they are still speaking. God Bless you Rakhi.

I dont understand why people of India are working with foreign Christian missionaries to elimiate the faith of this land.Please dont fall prey to false promises of the west.Shame on any India who converts to foreign faith.Our forefathers sacrificed their life to protect our religion and tradition but some Indians have no respect.Feel sorry for such people.

Thank you Jesus you have given talent to sister Rakhi to be a celebrity in Bollywood industries. Let your spirit guide her to share your good news to the world.

Rakhi Sawant should have embraced Islam instead of Christianity.

Jesus himself had to convert to Hinduism to get rid of his pain & sorrows inflicted upon him by Jews. His body was cured by ayurveda & meditation which he learnt from the age-old wisdom of Hindu saints. While the West is increasingly turning to the East for guidance, ignorant Indians are easily giving up their knowledge by falling for the lure of money

jesus suffered for all mankind……. if he did not love us he wouldnt have given his life for us :)……… He is the living God………. praise be to Him forever :)……… with him nothing is impossible :)……… what has happened in Rakhi’s life has happened in many other’s lives…. Jesus will come again…… but before he comes his Gospel will be preached to the nations and then the end will come :) whoever believes in him and accepts that he is the living God and accepts him as their personal saviour will be saved…:) and its not because of money for those who think like that :) god so loved the world that He gave his only son jesus to die for the world so that who soever shall believe in him will not perish but have everlasting life :) (john 3:16,17)…….. He is a forgiving God :) anyone who lets him abide in them will have their sins washed away by the precious blood of Christ :) God bless

Each person today is experiencing some form of sufferings whether in the physical or emotional. Does that means that the story that Jesus suffering for all manking was a waste of his time? It seems very annoying to read about people contradictions between their spirituality and the religion imposed upon them. It maybe that the more money one have to go on TV and or to covert others makes them more believable.

i would be glad if rakhi sawant can read my comment…I was very happy to hear that you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior but life changes after accepting Jesus..sadly i can see no change in your attitude and embarrassing behaviors publicly…every believer should set up an example in front of others through their life but because of Rakhi people mocks Jesus…Accepting Jesus is a full submission and not partially…i do not mean to offend you!!

Praise the Lord Rakhi sawant is saved.I want Manish to know that everything about Rakhi will change sooner than later.They say laughter is a good medicine.I never laughed so much before in my life.After reading Amit Ashtekar’s comment I did.

O Lord..Rakhi Sawant lost election..hey lord any miracle..madam please attend church prayers regularly..
Let me come to the point..since a Indian let me talk about India. Pre British rule India was rated the no 1 in Economy, with well structured policy,full fledge university etc etc..Yes but castism prevailed,how does it make difference when people in West was differentiation people by work class. For eg:Movie inspired by real story TITANIC where people where given priority based on wealth(now east and west is equal).Then Portuguese entered India followed by Dutch,Brithish etc etc. These people where christian, hidden agenda was to loot Indians.These west people came to know about the how innocent people where in India.They looted as much they can,people of western countries knew it was wrong,it was against Humanity and followers of lord Jesus never bothered.Just imagine.. What was these pastors,father’s, nuns,the pope where doing then,dint they teach good manner what Jesus thought..today we are in this situation is not because we have born poor but we were made poor by this christian countries.

Secondly…Indians have been living with whatever religion there are from. Every one has miracle story to say irrespective of religion. If you want to improve your way of life,it’s not the religion its approach towards life. change religion with your own choice,for some people it’s a profession to convert people,so they do it.There are no short cuts in my life work ,in that case countries African or Latin countries who follow Jesus would never live as poor with people killings,theft etc etc..again I say..there are no short cuts in life.Don’t make religion as a company.

Just saw a section as TRY JESUS, common guys Jesus is not a soap or a ice cream, have some respect to your own GOD…
