Tuesday October 8, 2002 I walked into my first AA meeting to declare before someone that I had a problem and needed help. My life was a disaster. Sunday December 8, 2002 I “came to” for the last time and Jesus Christ had finally gotten ahold of me. Or I finally surrendered in earnest and removed myself from the picture. This was the first time in my life that I understood, completely, how hopeless and how little control I had over my life. Something outside of me was dictating my life. When I awakened and realized that which was driving the bus was in fact killing me, I turned away from the enemy and towards my Savior
Being Baptized in the Holy Spirit changes a person’s life. The act itself, I have been told, is an outward demonstration of an event that has already taken place. We stand before Jesus Christ, family and community to announce that we have given our lives to Jesus and He is now the reason we have life. It is our first act of spreading the Gospel and sharing the Gospel with others.
Today is September 11, 2019. Will this be the day we awaken to live a new life in the truth or will we continue to live under the rule of the enemy? Today is a great day to awaken to His truth and be set free from the chains of death, lies and deception the enemy spreads like Our Father spreads beauty, truth and life.
Mark 16 NKJV
14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen.
15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
