I Have Decided To Follow Jesus ♫ The Story & The Song


in 1904 revival swept across Wales God
made Himself known in a very special and personal way after the revival a
Welshman ventured halfway across the world to India and he trekked up the
mountains towards a remote village in the east he was told, “Go back! The
tribe in that village are famously violent” but the Welshman ignored the
warnings because even these savage headhunters should have the opportunity
to hear about the mercy of God one tribesman and his family heard the
Gospel and received Jesus as their Savior the good news was too good to
keep to themselves and they shared the Gospel with others in the tribe the
chief was very angry and he had the tribesman and his family dragged before
the village “Stop following Jesus!” the chief demanded. The tribesman replied “No
I have decided to follow Jesus I am not turning back” The chief was furious and
killed the tribes man’s children “Stop following Jesus!” the chief insisted. The
tribesman replied “Though none go with me I still will follow no turning back.”
The chief showed no mercy and he killed the tribes man’s wife.
“Now you will stop following this Jesus!” the chief said. The tribesman looked the
chief in the eyes and replied “The cross before me the world behind me no turning
back.” The chief could not believe his ears and he killed the tribesman. Jesus
said if a grain of wheat dies it bears much fruit and that day many of the
villagers who witnessed the persecution of that tribesman and his family also
decided to follow Jesus even the chief himself became a follower of Jesus
Christ the tribes man’s last words became the
song of the village and today it is sung all around the world I have decided to
follow Jesus I have decided to follow Jesus I have decided to follow Jesus I have decided to follow Jesus no turning back no turning back Though none go with me I still will follow though none go with me I still will follow though none go with me I still will follow no turning back everything all I am and all I have to bring I will give to You my everything

  8. I saw in the hymnal where the tune of this song is noted as being a folk tune from India. I always wondered what the story was. Thank you!

  9. And i guess now it's safe to say that 80+ % of our tribe is saved by Jesus, that including me. Thanks for sharing my humble little tribe's story ♥

  10. so a Welsh man went to india to the tribals, so how could he speak their language!!??

    if he used a guide, even the guide would be afraid to go to those tribes because they were warned about the head hunting killings those tribes does!

  11. No wonder it's available in many languages. Here, I give you it's rendition in Yoruba:

    Mo ti se leri lati sin Jesu
    Mo ti se leri lati sin Jesu
    Mo ti se leri lati sin Jesu
    Nko o ni pada, nko o ni pada.

    Thank you for intimating us with the soul-inspiring story behind the imperishable song of dedication to our Lord Jesus Christ!

  12. They forgot to tell what happened to that village. Where are they today?

    True, Jesus is the greatest gift to man kind. Unfortunately, the devil has stolen the patent of being Christian and charges true Christians a high price, especially to the poor.

  13. Because I have always heard this song in the black church being African-American I always thought it was an African-American song I had no idea the story behind it wow it really makes you think about what persecution really means in the world today for those who follow God.

  14.

  15. Jessus had no place to rest (lay down) his head…
    We are focalised on materiall things and we don't understand what means to carry our cross…

    Is so easy to let out a few emotional words, but all of them are not valuable still they are not becomming deeds (acts).

    I saw a movie called :
    "Not A Fan" and i recommend it to every "christian."

    We are called to be followers.
    Shalom.

  16. The Church created by the Holy Spirit the day of Pentecost is not an human made organization, but a living god man organism that is Divine. This is how Paul verifies that the Church is the Body of Christ! [Colossians 1: 24] “Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church: After His Ascension Lord Jesus (God Logos) became the "head of the body the Church".

    A head, is a head of a body and a body belongs to a head in a way they are undivided. Lord Jesus/God Logos became the source (causation) of everything that that takes place in the Body the Church (Holy Sacraments http://orthodoxwiki.org/Holy_Mysteries by becoming High Priest. [Hebrews 4: 14] “For we have a great Priest who has gone into the very presence of God” He became High Priest and Mediator to His Father enabling those baptized and receiving the Holy Spirit within TO BE REDEEMED FROM ALL SIN, to purify the heart (only God can forgive sins) and become MEMBERS OF A BODY [Α Colossians 1:18] “He is the head of his body, the Church; He is the source of the body’s life” http://orthodoxinfo.com/general/stjohn_church.aspx

    During Baptism a person I sredeemed from all sins and receives the gifts of the Holy Spirit however it is up to each and every individual to energize them or set them in motion at will based on their greatest gift from God which is their freedom.

    Without Baptism as delivered by the Holy Spirit the day of Pentecost ( no redeeming from all sin) life after death conditions will remain the same as before the coming of Lord Jesus and the creation of His Church where there was no hope no Salvation! [Exodus 33:20] And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

    Spiritual life (according to the experiences of the Saints) is not the learning of spiritual truths, but the union and relationship that mankind was made to have with God [ 1 Corinthians 3:16]

    The term "Orthodox Psychotherapy" does not refer to specific cases of people suffering from psychological problems of neurosis. iI refers to people disabled from ever being able to having communion (PERSON to person) with God.

    TO BE AN ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN

    Is to experience the Apostolic Faith …

    God bless and please Know that the first precognition in returning to the presence of God ( Salvation) was never about Bible Knowledge, Love or Faith but about SIN!

    [John 8:21] “you can not come to where I am going with sins”
    He who does not fulfill Christ commandments he is a denier of Christ

    God bless

  17. A few months ago I found videos of Christians of Aizawl and Mizoram of N E India. I was surprised to hear about this beautiful people and their testimony and love for Jesus. Their churches are vibrant and the great majority are young people. They love singing and all the churches have excellent choirs and what is even more amazing is that the various congregations all worship with much reverence and respect as did their forefathers. Aizawal is the capital of Mizoram and people who have been there say it is the cleanest and most beautiful city in India. The people are disciplined and proud of their heritage and the fact that their forefathers had converted from head hunters to Christ.

  18. Absolutely awesome and very beautifully done. God bless! ,!!🇱🇷👏👏👏👏✝️✝️✝️👍👍👍🌹🌹🌹🌹❤️❤️💕💕💗💓

  19. To balance this video and to be impartial, a video should have been made about how christians killed those who do not want to convert to christianity. In history there were countless instances of christians forcing their belief on conquered natives.

  20. Wow!! Never heard this before. It always amazes me what people have gone through that has written the old hymns. Or hymns be written by what people have witnessed. God is faithful.

  21. John 3:16 For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believe in hiim may not die but have eternal life, beautiful story, thank you God bless

  22. WHAT A DISCOVERY!!! THANK. YOU. JESUS

  23. The imaginary god of the immoral bible is absolutely evil and a psychopathic mass murderer with Alzheimer's that cannot love.
    RTFM
    .

  24. May the LORD God give me that dedication and strength if the time ever comes. Praise God for the fruit of this story!!! 👏👏🙏☝🙌💕

  25. 🎶🎵
    Mengikut Yesus keputusanku 3×
    Kutak ingkar 2×
    (Following Jesus is my decision 3x
    I don't deny 2x)

    Walau sendiri, kuikut Yesus 3x
    Kutak ingkar 2x
    (Even though alone, I follow Jesus 3x
    I don't deny 2x)

    Dunia dibelakang, salib didepan 3×
    Kutak ingkar 2x
    (The world's behind me, the cross before me)

    Maukah engkau mengikut Yesus 3x
    Selamanya 2×
    (Would you want to follow Jesus 3x
    Forever 2x)
    🎵🎶

  26. Ironic!
    I have decided to un-follow Jesus.
    If you can't walk on water, what kind of faith do you really have?
    Are you real or fake?

  27. Jesus is compassionate, and kind. Jesus gives rest to the souls of people. Jesus in a person, will hear the voice of Jesus, when they hear a person speak, or read what they write. That is judging, rightly. That type of judging, does not condemn others. How a person talks, is what needs to be considered, rather than a sexuality name, that they associate with. Psalm 37:37-40 King James Version (KJV) 37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.

  28. I went to Wikipedia and searched "Garo people."
    Their main religion is Christianity.
    It took on brave Welsh man to travel, and even braver family to stand for Jesus till death.

    Now they are in heaven, and bare fruits of their whole tribe turning Christian.
    Tribe Population: 2,087,771

  29. continue to bow down to your colonial master who came with a bible in one hand and guns in the other hand. christians white men have killed as many people as anyone else in recent history. now, the whitemen continue to claim a monopoly on truths, and continue to wage war in the name of such truths. that can't be the fruits of a real god, can it? oh, i can already imagine the same old excuses being uttered… never mind. once you believe, there's no more truth seeking

  30. Im very proud to say that I also among the same tribe of the composer of this song And because of this man I also the follower of Jesus christ💚 Thank you Almighty God for blessed us this man to turn our whole tribe to follow you.

  31. First heard this song as a toddler at Sunday School 😍 it brings back so many cherished memories 😄 love this version as well 😊

  32. We are Mizo used to be called the Head Hunters. BUT now, we are hunting for the lost souls. We never leave our brothers and sisters behind. We are all family. Thank you Jesus for saving MIZORAM and using us as you're deciples.
