Who Has the Control Over Untimely Death & Mishappenings?

No one has the capability to change the circumstances and situations except The Supreme God. He is none other than Kabir Sahib Ji. Kabir Ji cleared this in a Verse that God can change the circumstances in a moment.

Kabir, Sahib se sab hot hai, Bande se kuch nahi। 

Raai se parvat kre, Parvat se fir raii।।

In the following Verse, Kabir Sahib Ji clears that having a long span of life is not beneficial until and unless one has not taken initiation from a True Guru. And, it is good to have a short life if one recites the True naam of True God.

Jeewan to thora hi bhla, Je sat sumiran hoye।

Laakh varsh ka jeevna, Lekhe dhre na koye।।

Who Is The Eternal God?

The Eternal God is Supreme Kabir Sahib Ji and the evidence is given in our holy scriptures.

  • Atharvaved Kaand no. 4 Anuvaak no.1 Mantra no. 7

YaH – atharvanm – Pitram – Devbandhum – Brahspatim – namsa –av – ch –gachchhaat – tvam – vishwesham – janita – yatha – saH –KavirdevH – na – dabhaayat – swadhaavaan | 

Translation: He, who is unchanging i.e. eternal, Father of the universe, the real companion of the devotees i.e. the basis of the soul, Guru of the universe, and who takes a polite worshipper, i.e. worshipper who worships according to the scriptures, who has gone to Satlok, to Satlok with safety; the Creator of all the brahmands, Jagdamba i.e. who is also endowed with the qualities of a mother, who has the nature i.e. qualities of not betraying like Kaal, He is, as it is, Himself KavirDev i.e. in different language He is also called Kabir Parmeshwar.

In this Mantra, it has also been made clear that the name of that God, who has done all the Creation, is KavirDev (Supreme God Kabir).

Kabir Sahib Ji had mentioned in scriptures that He, Himself would come on Earth to enlighten the entire world. If He will not come then a True Saint would be there who would Explain the True Devotion to His devotees from the scriptures.

Who Is The True Saint At Present?

At present, that True saint is Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj Ji. He only is providing the True devotion to His devotees from the scriptures. Thus, one should take name initiation from Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj as soon as possible as no one is sure about what is going to happen in the next minute — whether we would be alive or dead.
