GREETINGS IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST MY LORD!
ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN?
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BECOME ONE?
MY PERSONAL TESTIMONY WITH
A COUPLE OF WEB SITE LINKS.
I did not grow up in a Christian family; my people were in the logging
profession. When I was 22 years old while living in oak ridge Oregon
working in lumber mill. I worked the swing shift so I slept in the daytime
and would go into work at 5 pm the next evening. I had an experience one
Sunday morning after partying all night I had dream or vision or?
When I shut my eyes for sleep a pitcher of my dad formed on my eye lids,
this startled me I then opened my eyes and the negative started forming
with my eyes open, I shut my eyes again and his image formed clearly. He
had his eyes closed and it was white all around him, not glowing white
just white. About ten hours later I went to work, after two and a half
hours my boss comes to me and tell me he had just received a call telling
him my dad was in the hospital and it was life threatening. Three hours
later I walked into his hospital room and he was just like I saw him that
morning. This stuck me a little! He recovered as he nearly bled to death
do to a growth pinching the main artery in his nose.
Then about three mouths later I moved to the Oregon coast where I grew
up. I rented a house with two of my friends, three months later I had a
dream. I saw my left hand index finger in an arch and then the face of my
roommate Mark, this repeated three times. I got up that morning and
started to chop the wood for the wood stove we cooked on, after three
chops I cut my finger, I lifted my left hand; saw the cut and exclaimed
with a loud voice I saw this in my dreams last night, about that time Mark
walked out of his room and as I lifted my eyes from my finger and saw
Mark he said, I just sharpened the hatchet last night. Needless to say this
got my attention.
Three months later another dream happened, I was dreaming one
morning that I was falling and there was nothing to catch me, and it kept
getting darker and darker until I could feel the darkness; scared I woke
up sweating. I got up on my knees and started talking to GOD, I said, I
know you exist I would like to talk to you. I don’t know if you can hear
me but here are some things I need to tell you.
So for about 45 minutes I told him all that I done adulteries, lies, cursing,
stealing, taking his name in vain, evil thoughts, disobedience to my
parents, how I treated my brothers, etc. When I came to my self I couldn't’
t cry another tear. My tee shirt was wet from crying and wiping my tears
off. I got up from there and felt like some one took a pressure washer and
cleaned me from the inside. My life has never the same Halajaha!!!…
After the experience of being cleaned from the inside six questions came
to mind! 1, who is GOD- 2, where is GOD- 3 how many is GOD- 4 what is
GOD, - 5 what’s the name of GOD, 6 and what does it have to do with me?
About this time my younger blood brother brings me a bible and the first
scripture I read was
LUKE 21:33 in the scripture heavens and earth shall pass away but my
words shall never pass away.
This startled me because I lived on the earth. What will become of me I
thought! Then I read it again but MY WORD will never pass away, I said
to myself, if I could fill myself up with his word I would never pass away. I
started reading the bible as much as I could, couldn't’t get enough. I had
no desire to do the things I use to do .I cut my long hair, I didn't’t know
why! No desire for going to the bars drinking, smoking pot, doing drugs
etc. (God was giving power to clean up my life).
Then I started going to a little Baptist church where my parents made me
go to when I was a boy (I think to get me out of house for awhile). But I
needed to get the answers to my questions. They helped a little bit but I
was not yet satisfied, example; I asked if Jesus was the Son of God? Yes
thy said! Then I asked who was his father? They said God! I then said,
didn't’t marry conceive of the Holy Ghost! Would not that make the Holy
Ghost his father? They couldn't’t explain this, but said it’s a revelation to
be revealed at another day. About three months had gone by, and I read in
the bible that a man wasn't’t supposed to have long hair. I had already cut
my hair. And then it hit me; some unseen force was dealing with me
compelling me to clean up my life changing my desires for the things of
God and not for the things of the world.
At this time I saw that I needed to be baptized, but then the question is
how? I saw in the scripture there were two ways.
Mathew 28:19 and acts 2:38, now the Baptist church did it the Father,
Son, and Holy Ghost, way. So I asked about acts 2:38 they kind of played
it down, and said we do it that way. So I prayed earnestly to the lord and
he revealed to me the answer. Now it was during this time I came in
contact with the ministry of William Branham after meeting some of the
believers they expounded to me the scriptures, (the way of God more
perfectly) like Aquila and Priscilla did with Apollo’s in acts 18:24,25,26
I studied the scriptures on this subject and found that no one in the
scripture was ever baptized in the three titles but all were baptized in
Jesus name. They explained to me that father is not a name; it is a title.
Son is not a name it is a title, and Holy Ghost is not a name they are all
titles or offices that the Lord [Father] Jesus [Son] Christ [Holy Spirit] .
They explained that God was obligated to his word and that in acts 2:
38,39 there was a promise in the word of sins being forgiven and the gift
of the Holy Ghost. This being clearly explained to me by the scriptures
and the message William Branham I then sought out the way to be
baptized in Jesus name
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of
you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall
receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. The next verse 39 tells it is a promise to
receive the Holy Spirit
39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that
are afar off, [even] as many as the Lord our God shall call.
ALSO SEE: PROVERBS 1:23
23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I
will make known my words unto you.
Then the Lord made a way for me to go to Idaho and meet some more
believers. After obeying the word and being baptized in the name Jesus
Christ and receiving the word of God (JESUS CHRIST) as my personal
savior, all Mighty God, king, Husband Father, Consular, Refuge in a time
of trouble, My ALL and ALL. My life would never be the same.
So I started to understand that scripture agrees with scripture and that the
Holy Spirit was given to unveil or make known the word to the real
believer who would take god at his word and obey.
Such as: JOHN 1:1
¶ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the
Word was God. Then they showed me that the WORD was made flesh
. JOHN 14
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his
glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and
I then could see that this was Jesus Christ. The word made manifest in
human flesh. And then in,
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of
God, [even] to them that believe on his name.
After seeing (understanding the revelation) that I was to receive the word,
then Jesus Christ became my personal savior and getting baptized in his
name and receiving the holy spirit would make me a bride, believer, child
of God, royal seed of Abraham, to whom the promises of god would
BLESSED BE THE GOD OF ALL CREATION WHO ALONE IS
WORTHY OF ALL GLORY!
I believe the ministry of William Branham the MESSAGE given him will
help any one to see how the lord Jesus is while living in human and make
them wise unto the salvation of there soul. This ministry has allowed me
to see and have a very close relationship with my lord and savior Jesus
LORD BLESS YOU RICHLY
