This is my testimony for Jesus Christ, my everlasting and merciful Saviour, the most Holy Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the earth. Amen.
I will tell yo right now, that if I did not Have Jesus in my life… I would most likely be dead. Jesus Christ has always been there for me, His Most Holy Spirit has protected me through the worst of storms, the deadliest of encounters and the most ignorant choices I have ever made. Fortunately, I gave my life the Jesus when I was very, very, young. I was only 6 yo and I was so traumatized by my father’s death and the fact that the world was nothing like the home I had been raised in, that I was lost. All Praise be to God the Father, I had enough religious background and good moral upbringing to allow me to understand that I needed to pray for direction. Even at that young age, I knew something was wrong and I could not fix it by myself. Do not try to tell me 6 yo don’t know anything because I am here to tell you that yes, they do, so stop talking to them like they are morons and start telling them the truth about things.
I am so sick and tired of seeing parents act like their children are stupid and treating them like they cannot understand things like: “If you run into the street without looking you may get hit by a car, and if you get hit by a car you may die, or worse you may be crippled for life. So please do not run into the street or do anything that may possibly harm you in such a manner. I love you and want you to be healthy and happy your entire life. So, if you don’t know if something can hurt you badly you can always come to me and ask. OK? It doesn’t matter what it is. OK? Don’t be afraid to ask me anything. I will always love you. ”
How hard is that?
Most parents yell at their kids, call them stupid for not knowing something and then wonder why their kids end up being arrested or worse. Too bad we don’t have parenting police. Parents are the ones who ruin their children. First, then it’s the instructors in the school system they attend. Bad teachers are responsible for a lot of rebellion and bad grades. We need to start looking I to both sides of the coin. If a child is a problem, I can guarantee you that there is a suspicious adult involved. If you do not have time for raising a child, you need to make sure you don’t have any. There’s a very natural thing called the ‘Rhythm Method’ that works beautifully, just add a couple of days of abstinence to both ends of the spectrum and you will never get pregnant. I know, I only had one child after I was ignorant and full of rebellion at the age of 15. I didn’t want a kid, I didn’t know you could get pregnant from having sex 1 time. I knew I had gotten pregnant, I felt the little pin prick of that sperm piercing that egg. I don’t know how any woman in this world can say she didn’t know she was pregnant and by whom. I knew. The exact moment it happened, so women, quit with the ignorance and lies. If a man does not ask you to be his wife, stop trying to trap the poor guy with pregnancy lies. I hate it when women do ignorant wicked stuff like that, there’s a lot of otherwise good men out there being turned against women because of your stupid immature ones. Grow up and get a life first. Then worry about getting married and having children and busting a guy’s testicles. Believe me, men who have good parents don’t need instructions on how to be upright. Just know this, God is watching every single thought that goes through those stupid heads of yours. Amen.
Back to Jesus.
As I said, my testimony starts when I was 6 yo. Yep, that’s right. After I had been dragged kicking and screaming into first grade only 1 month after my father died at my feet, so traumatized by knowing he was gone forever, I was thrust into first grade in parochial school. Now this is a place where all the older kids love to tell horror stories about the paddle machine mother superior kept in the office especially for kids who did ‘bad’ things in class. Well, we had church every morning before e class and this one time, I won’t mention her name, she knows who she is, peed in the pew because she was too afraid to tell Sister Mary Vincent she needed to go to the bathroom. Believe me I understand her fear. Nuns can be ferocious if they think you are just trying to get out of something. LOL. I have a great story on that. Anyway, little miss rich kid did it. I hated rich people for most of my youth after that because of this incident. Anyway, everyone in that pew were later dragged out and lined in the hallway to face the accuser. She was angry, after all it was the house of God and someone peed on the floor and it had to be cleaned up by someone. I never knew who. Maybe it was our teacher. LOL. There are strange workings inside the halls of the Catholic Church.
Well, no one would admit being the perp so, there I was, little ragamuffin in hand me downs, stringy hair and living on charity. Well, the nun looked at me direct and told me, “I know you did it. Look at you too poor to even have any supervision or morals. You are lying Debra Kay Gerik.” Oh…… I got mad then. You are calling me a liar I thought. I am more honest and better than you will ever be. That did it. At once I chose never to listen to a stupid immoral and ignorant adult who obviously was prejudiced about the fact that now that my father died we were extremely poor. I must admit I was consumed with hatred at that very moment. Do you see how the devil uses anything and anybody to set young people on the path of destruction? I used to look down on all the poor fools who were too ignorant to know the difference between right and wrong. After all I had a very good teacher. His name was Jesus.
Of course, tings then proceeded to deteriorate, and I became very depressed at finding out how horrible people treated each other. I had never been treated horrible in my life nor knew that people hit their kids, yelled at them, or called them stupid before I had to go to school. I had a very idyllic first 6 years of life, no one bothered me, I got to explore the world at my own pace and I even had some very regal imaginary friends. LOL. I used to have tea quite regularly with Queen Elizabeth and Princess Ann. Oh haw we talked about young prince Charles. Then there was a very special friend I had. He would walk with me and we would talk about life and all kinds of things, I just never could remember His Name until I was much older and really came to know Him, His Name was Jesus.
One day in church, I shut my eyes and started praying, and I asked Him, “Who am I?” I heard this very quiet voice say, “Say your name.” So, I said my name inside my prayers and I saw this gigantic flaming cross surrounded by the deepest black you can imagine. It was pretty scary, but I understood that Jesus would always be my light in the darkness. Then He asked if I understood and could I accept that kind of life. I told Him that yes, I believed I could. That was the start of my walk with Jesus. I just regret that the Catholic Church only had Catechism and did not actually get anyone to study the scriptures. It’s taken me until now at the age of 65 to say I really know what Jesus Christ did for us when He died upon the Cross and what it is that He came to teach us.
Sometimes I feel as though He is right beside me and when I feel His Spirit He is so pure that it’s a form of ecstasy which I cannot describe. He just radiates this warmth all around me and I can feel Him like He is standing right there. I can touch Him, Hold Him, I’ve even danced with Him when I was feeling so despondent I thought I night just die from grief and misery. He has taken my hands and twirled me like a lover in a Tango. I cannot describe the way He can make me feel. And all I must do is acknowledge His Holy Presence and He IS There. Of course, no one believes me. I mean look at who I used to be. I was hopeless drug addict selling my body to support my habit. I used to sell all my food to buy crack them I would be starving to death and He would cause someone to drop food right in front of my house, or some neighbor would show up with something to eat. I was so blessed, yet no one believed me. But He wanted me free of that oppression. He wanted me free to be the person He made me and that is a kind, loving, upright human being who showed their love to the world. I don’t claim to be a great prophet or teacher, but I do know Christ, and I do know His Heavenly Father and I do know His Holy Spirit.
I am not perfect! Nor will I ever be until that day when He returns with a Glorious sound of shouting and trumpets. I can’t wait. Its all I live for as there is nothing else that can compare with the Love of Jesus. No one on this earth is perfect, we all make mistakes, we can all fall but if we call out to Him when we are miserable He will help us get back up and get over whatever it is that has us captive to Satan.
Know this. It does not matter how far down you go, He will still help you. Do not let the ignorance of this world tell you that you are forsaken and that if you only had Jesus you wouldn’t have all those problems. That is a lie. Jesus Himself tells us that darkness will constantly surround us when we follow Him, He told us that this world will hate us and do everything it can against us to make us fall. We just need to believe even when things are so dark and desperate we feel like no one can love us, we need to remember that no matter what He will love us and help us if we truly love Him and keep His Commandments. I know how hard it is at times to cling to that knowledge of forgiveness and help. Even when we think He is not listening He IS! I have cried and screamed and questioned and acted like an utter fool in His presence because I am such a big baby that I feel like nothing can ever go right for me, because the harder I try the more the devil heap coals on my head and makes me act like an unsaved wretch who never knew HIM. Believe me He is still there. He just needs to know that you love Him and trust Him more than anything else. There is not one thing in this world that can save you except Jesus Christ Himself. He can give you hope in that darkness when no one else will. Just call out to Him anyway you can. Cling to the knowledge that He is real, and He is coming back for us. Just imagine. On that day we will be raised to His Righteousness. He will heal all our sorrows, our hearts, minds, and bodies will be made perfect. Missing limbs restored! Damaged minds repaired! No illness! No pills! No life supports! The righteous dead will be resurrected to full life and vitality bursting with health and youth! (Isaiah 65:20) NLT
“No longer will babies die when only a few days old. No longer will adults die before they have lived a full life. No longer will people be considered old at one hundred! Only the cursed will die that young.”
Wow can you imagine? We will have life just as we have it here without all the hardship or deceit. It will be so beautiful! (Isaiah 66:22, 2 Peter 3:10-13, Rev. 21:1,5)
As horrible as Christ’s suffering was for us on the Cross, is it not enough to endure our suffering now, so that we may receive His Heavenly Blessing of Eternal Life with Him forever? Be glad in your suffering for He will bless you if you prevail to the very end and do not lose your faith in Him. Do not buy into the false teachings of those who want to impose earthly images of false redemption upon you. They do not truly know God. If they did they would welcome those who come to them needing help who do not have false hearts. Only the devil is corrupt and lost forever with no redemption. Any other soul can be saved, if you do not ignore the urgings of His Holy Spirit.
It is only the demons of this world, the corrupt and ignorant disciples of that old devil Lucifer himself, and their false teachings and his extreme and insane delusions and wicked deceptions that prevent those who are victimized by his ignorance from being made whole. There are so many inhabitants of this world who do not understand about God’s True Righteousness, nor His Goodness and Mercy. Instead they choose to believe the lies which they fabricate inside their evil hearts, which declare that there is no good without evil. I feel sorry for all those who are lost inside of Satan’s deception. Only Christ can save us and nothing man can invent inside his own mind can change one jot or tittle of God’s Holy Law, which is embodied in the Ten Commandments.
Only diligent study of His Holy Scripture delivered to us through His chosen prophets can teach you the Truth. It is only by knowing what is Written that we can even begin to hope that we are not deluded by Satan’s counterfeit miracles which must be made known before the Second Coming of Christ. And we must know within our hearts, what He means, and I believe that this is my ministry for Christ. To show those who are lost and can be saved how to give genuine love to others, not this love full of conditions and recriminations. For there are those who cannot and will not be redeemed because they refuse in their hearts to admit to the very real wickedness to which they cling. And those who come to Him must not come in falseness, for those we must cast aside, for they do not know God and do not truly want His Forgiveness. These are the children of Satan, spreading more hardship, stealing the fruits from those who are called His Children. For we are the Righteous and we must beware, for the devil is the father of their confusion.
And Satan, now knowing his time is short, will go to extreme measures to threaten those who truly love God and know that Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son and Saviour, the High Priest who stands inside of the Most Holy Place as the Intercessor, before God, our Heavenly Father.
Study the Word. Don’t just listen to others preach. They may very well be telling you lies, false teachings to lead you astray. The only way you will know is if you delve deeply into the Holy Scriptures and find out what it says for yourselves. Do not believe the lies of Satan or the false prophets in the pulpits who preach deception.
I confess, that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh. So help me God. Amen.
