And this is my testimony!
I am 35 years of age. Throughout my life I have gone from luke warm to cold to full blasphemous with my relationship with God. I at one point was a religious counselor while at boot camp in the Marine Corp. Even still I was not saved. I later would find myself in a abusive relationship with kids. I'll save the more graphic details but I was one of the most sinfullest people in the world. Sex, drugs, profanity and at really low points I would even condemn God. I watched my life constantly crumble with my kids even suffering and selfishly I got close to suicide. I never did follow through with it. Some would call it "chicken" but today I see that I didn't because I was meant for more.
I finally would leave my wife and the kids today are safe. I started going to church. You know, the happy feel good god loves you and always do good ones. I felt good. On Sundays after service at least. But never picked up the Bible outside of it. I still just didn't get it.
Now comes September 2016, and the world is in utter chaos. It's in worse condition than ever and you know more is coming. Finally I started looking into Revaltion and the Bible which would later lead to Daniel and Ezekiel. I than began watching videos on the End Times and would eventually find Rapture Ready. I would study and read and continued to try and make myself worthy to be one who was "caught up". I kept falling into the trap of not rightfully dividing the Word of God. I kept trying to present myself in a fashion I was worthy. Still, I was not saved.
I finally watched a video called "The Gospel" by Eric Ludy in October. It was during this video I realized the Truth. I was not worthy. I deserved to die. I deserved to spend an eternity in Hell and NOTHING I DID WOULD EVER CHANGE THIS!! But that didn't stop Jesus from taking my payment. He knows me, He knows all the horrible things I've done, He even knows at one point I fully spat on the name of God. And He STILL carried that cross for me, He still paid for all of my sins with His own blood! He suffered for me! And He still has a place for me in Heaven next to Him with Our Holy Father. And all I had to do was throw myself on my knees, confess my sins and accept His free gift and stop doing it my way!
I cried! I gave up and dropped down and repented my sins and believed in Him and His life,His payment for my sins, His death and resurrection and accepted His Gift!!
I will NEVER forget the next feeling!! I felt the Holy Spirit immediately claim me as one of His children. With His promise to never let me go! Not only do I have a place in Heaven, I don't have to face the challenges of this mortal world alone!!
I no longer worry about if I'm saved. I know I always am! I LOVE studying His word! If I'm ever confused about something in life it's always the first place I go now! I've stopped seeking out works meant to prove my worth. I walk knowing He is with me and He will always put me where he wants me, all I have to do is listen and His Glory will be done!!
