My Testimony,

Young man I was very silent very angry. I grew up in South Florida with my dad. And two brothers and two sisters. Before I was born again it was a typical white picket fence all American Baptist Jesus loving family. My dad was the bus driver and also the contractor that built Greater Rhode Island Baptist Church, and my mother was the Sunday school teacher. My dad would pick up the kids down in the city of Providence they didn't know about the Lord bring it to my mom at the church and she would teach them all about the love of Jesus Christ. That was before I was born in 1986 in 1988 when I was two my family move down to Florida and by the time I was five my Parents were divorced. My mother left and my dad raised five kids by himself as a Carpenter and contractor. He was always a God-fearing man love Jesus but didn't take us to church after the divorce I'm not sure why? But I know my dad he never tried or did drugs soon my parents were divorced. My mother left and my dad raised five kids by himself as a carpenter and contractor. He was always a God-fearing man love Jesus but didn't take us to church after the divorce I'm not sure why? But I know my dad he never drank did drugs said a curse word he was a great man, and taught me all about the love of Jesus Christ had a very young age, but my dad being an orphan when he was a child and never having a family he always let us kids figure out our own way in life. So I did yes and Jerry I said the sinners prayer and believed in my heart I was saved. But I wasn't I continued to do whatever I wanted with you colluded fighting swearing drugs range stealing fornication anything I wanted to do I did it this is going from the age of 8 yrs until I was 16 yrs.

I was such a bad kid I was he's expelled from school and sent to alternative school I just couldn't behave I had serious anger issues. And 2000 my family moved to Rhode Island well it's not a family it was just me and my dad because my brothers and sisters grew up and we're out of the house. And I continue my bad behavior you get to the point I couldn't go to Public school anymore so much so my father arrange for me to go to a private Christian school hoping it would help with my behavior and because I had no the choice. First day at school I knocked a kid out for looking at me funny thought he was being disrespectful I didn't say that Christian stuff. But after that there was a day where not having any friends because I was taken from Publix for all my friends were I was invited to go to a youth service this is at age 16. Thursday at school I knocked the kid out for looking at me funny thought he was being disrespectful I didn't say that Christian stuff. What after that there was a day where not having any friends because I was taken from Publix for all my friends were I was invited to go to a youth service this is at age 16. I didn't take it very serious I thought these guys were crazy because I was raised Baptist and this was Pentecostal speaking in tongues I didn't understand it I just needed something to do so I went . I'll never forget this day ever it was right before Halloween 2002 and we're in the Santuario listening to the worship music I'm laughing and joking and being a clown like I was at that age and then the sermon starts. I'll never forget I thought to myself oh my gosh he's talking to me how does he know this information why is he talking to me why? The Holy Spirit was really convicting my soul. The preachers name was was chilly Chilton he was from Pennsylvania came up to do a special used service for my pastor because we had a pretty big sanctuary.

Either way remember his sermon was about Wearing masks and how we should takeoff our masks because every time with one group of friends you put on a mask and then will go home we have a different mask you put on we go to church we put on a church Mask. Like I said I thought he was talking directly to me and my heart started pounding out of my chest and I started crying and something inside of me spoke to me and said go go go so I got up and ran to the front of the church and fell on the floor and cried like I never cried before and I was filled with the Holy Spirit like you wouldn't believe. I have done lots of drugs of them to this point in my life and nothing can even come close to how I felt that day. I was Hooked on this Jesus!!! My life was turned around completely I stopped doing all those sinful things and started playing the bass guitar on Sunday morning service and was even in a youth competition called fine arts festival for youth worship teams and we placed third place in nationals!!! I got a scholarship to Zion Bible College and wanted to be a pastor I mean my life is totally turned around Blink of an eye. But I started to miss my friends from public school and I tried to speak to them about Jesus but they just called me a Bible thumper I didn't want to hang out blink of an eye.


But I started to miss my friends from public school and I tried to speak to them about Jesus but they just called me a Bible thumper and Jesus freak I didn't want to hang out. SoI figured I wouldn't try to convert them we would just hang out and we ended up starting a band. Which wasn't bad either because it was a jam band so we didn't have any vocals we just jammed out and played along instrumental jazz funk rock jam sessions kind a like the best PHISH. I did that in till I was 18 and we were finished with high school. But by this time the damage was done I was already back in shape and decided not to graduate from Trinity Christian Academy I decided to join the army like my dad and they offered to give me my GED for free and pay me to get it so I went. And dropped out of Trinity Christian Academy in the 12 grade with a 3.7 GPA it was a time of war so they also gave me a $20,000 sign on bonus. So for the next 10 years of my life it included nothing but whatever my flash wanted yes I had Jesus in my heart I claimed but was I living the will of the father no I was not I was living my Own will. I soon went back to drugs and alcohol sex orgies you name it I was doing oh I was a soldier in the US Army at a time of war I didn't know if I was in a live 10 more minutes but the devil had his grip on me big time. So I am did up getting addicted to opium and heroin and overdosing three different times where I was told they don't know how I'm still alive but I do it was the grace of God. And another time when I was in an accident broke my neck was paralyzed from the neck down airlifted to intensive care. But once again take the Lord's love and grace is amazing and I slowly got my arms and legs working again from the perilous. And another time when I got in it very bad 35 got kicked in the head with steel toe boots I was in a plumber for eight months in the hospital for a year and three months. They gave my parents 10% that I would wake up 5% that I would live and they were 50% certain if I did wake up from that, I would be a vegetable. But they were wrong because the Lord Jesus had A plan for my life. But after all these horrible things happened to me I still didn't put the Lord continue a drug addiction my lawlessness my corruption 2 1/2 years ago I was able to get clean and slowly the Lord has been working on my heart and as of January 1, 2019 I completely submitted my life over to him and have no other reason to live anymore he lit the fire in my heart for the Holy Spirit once again ...PRAISE JESUS!!, "HE WHO OVERCOMES WILL SIT AT THE RITE HAND NEXT TO THE FATHER AND THE SON" -BOOK OF REVALATIONS

Thank you for sharing your past experiences, friend. Hopefully it will inspire and comfort others with similar backgrounds. Too many young people, today, are going through the perils of drug and alcohol addiction. Such things open us up for demon possession. God must have a plan for you to rescue you out of your past sins.

Wow, ICU for a year and half? God definitely has a plan for you. Thanks for sharing such a testimony. It also serves to warn what would happen if you don't continue on the path to Light and allow worldly associations to take over again.

Very very long hair?
1 Corinthians 11:14 "Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?"
Elijah bringing the hearts of man to the Father? Isn't that Christ's job? to be man's intercessor?

Read your bible,seek his face daily... The book of Malachi 4:5-6 " Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the Great and dreadful day of the Lord:And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to there fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse." Keep the faith brothers and sister the lord is coming soon No one knows the time accept the father. Pick up your cross daily and walk with christ. Fill your soul with the bread of life (His WordKJV) and pray for knowledge and understanding of all things. Proverbs 3:5-8 "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: Fear the Lord, and DEPART from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bone." KJV I Love you brother or sister, Jesus loves you unconditiinaly. Meditate day and night on his word seek his face, and he will raveal himself to you...

@wolf Yes!!!! Jesus is the only way to the father. "Intercessor" as you put it. I'm talking about end times, and what the Holy Spirit revealed to me. This dream was so so Real!! Like reality... I saw myself on the clouds ☁️ I was wearing a bright white robe, with gold trim on the sleeves , and a man smiling reaching beneath the clouds he had long white hair and a long white beard he was also wearing a white bright robe... and smiling this big righteous smile. It wasn't God the father, It wasn't Jesus. It was Elijah the prophet and I Read the book of Malachi and it spoke to me. I'm supernaturally turned to the father and stopped living in sin. After my whole life of Lawlessness, I've been in prison many times I'm a worthless sinner but for only god knows why he has brought me back to him. I don't swear anymore,drink, smoke pot, and he's taking away the cigarettes too. I'm just his humble servant, I'm nothing special. This is his testimony for my life. I must share it with as many people that will listen... God bless you Brother!!! Keep the faith!!! #STAYREADY

I see. I just dunno what's up with the long hair seeing what Scripture said about it. We all definitely should stay on the path of obedience, lest we don't make it.
