Feel free to see my testimony on you-tube about my first real encounter with GOD. ON October 9, 2008 ( a week after my birthday ) Title of the video is :FIU - The Outpouring (Testimony) Im a 27 year old ex drug dealer, ex drug user, ex pimp and was a part of a very organized crime that deals with money laundering, extortion and other things that I cant mention because it still goes on now in my city. I was also involved with Santaria- basically, worshiping the devil. I ended up cutting my wrist after trying to kill myself a couple of other times with Zanax, but the mercy of God came to me and told me it was time for me to be with him and to start doing his will. At that moment, not knowing where I was or even what I was doing, Pastor Frank Laid hands on me and I excepted Jesus into my heart. Instantly I was excepted and delivered with the blood of Jesus Christ. My Cocaine addiction for 3 years was gone My other drugs ( weed, pills, xtasy, acid, crack, crystal meth, etc ) for 12 years was gone. (I even sold all of those drugs) My cigarette addiction for 12 years was gone My sex addiction for 12 years was gone ( I got money for sex, Porn videos & selling women for sex ) The spirit of rejection was gone, I had it since birth because every man in my family was in Prison ( father - 1o years, i met him when I was 10, grandfather - 25 years and even my uncle who spent time in and out). I also thought I would end up in prison or dead, it was normal to me. I was really paranoid. I always thought the whole world was against me. I always had a gun in my holster and a couple of knives with me. All the time.. Im not like that any more !! I had no more depression, no fear, no more pride and no more anger. I had unforgiveness for my father. He left running at the age of 16. I was trying to kill him with a knife or with my uncle because he hit my mom so hard that he knocked her out. So he moved to another city and hid for 12 years. He abused me physically with punches, pool sticks, bats, etc. however, I wasnt going to allow him to hit my mother. I would die for her. She was all I had and the only pure thing in my life. I got delivered of all that in just 3 minutes! That day I officially died and was reborn in the spirit. I was 2 inches away from hell. A month before I cut my wrist twice and had about 30 stitches in my left wrist. I picked up the knife again. I looked up and asked God to save me because that month I studied how to cut my wrist in a way that no one could save me. At that moment, God sent me an angel. My phone rang. It was a girl that didn't have my number and that I havent spoken to for 8 months. She told me that someone gave her my number and told her that I was depressed. She wanted to invite me to some group thing. I didn't think anything of it. I felt it could have been from God. Try to picture it, I had the knife in my right hand by my right ear aiming at my wrist to slam the knife and twist the blade. I was shaking and full of tears. If she would have called me 5 or 10 minutes later, it would have been too late. I went to the group thing the next day. It wasnt at a church but it was a Christian service at a University. I thought it was going to be like a youth group meeting or even like a n/a meeting. I even had on my santaria beads on me. I was tormented the whole time the word of God was spoken but I didn't leave. I felt anger for no reason. At the end when they dimmed the lights and made the alter call I didn't want to get up. I didnt like the message or even pay attention to it. I was stuck to the chair until the power of God lifted me up. I felt like God himself grabbed me by the hand and took me. Pastor Frank gave me one look and just hugged me. At that moment, my chains were broken. I felt free. So free that I remained crying on his shoulders for a long time. I wasn't the type of person to do that. I hated to show any signs of weakness. I had too much pride, but that burden was lifted off me. I didnt care who was there. I felt like Jesus was the one hugging me. Pastor Frank prophesied over my life. Told me the purpose of my life with God. Pastor Frank told me things he could not have known; he said I had unforgiveness for my father, that I would forgive him and would see him real soon (I had doubt about this because I had not seen my father in 12 years). He also said that I would do something that most men would take years to do, however it would only take me months with the grace of God.. From that moment on, all doors of the world were shut and new doors of heaven were opened. I ended up meeting my father a month later. Right before Thanksgiving, during a deliverance course, at El Rey institute, with Pastor Ana Maldonado, I forgave my father. He didnt know I forgave him although after my deliverance he called me 3 days later! He asked my permission to see me and to forgive him. I was shocked. Those are signs and wonders of our Father in Heaven, Amen. So he came from Las Vegas and met me at church during a friday night youth service. It was a very special moment. LOL, once again I cried. I have cried more with the Lord than ever in my life. But these tears are from joy, love and freedom that only God can give. Everything that my pastor said has come to pass. I feel in the Spirit that the prophesy upon my life is the word of God. When I was in the world I always wanted to read the bible but couldnt. I was lazy, didnt understand it or just because I couldnt serve money and God. Let me tell you, It's only been 9 months of my rebirth in Jesus. Now I read the bible day and night. I know so many verses and have received many revelations of the word. I noticed it would have taken me or anyone else years to do so although I have done it in months. I have read the Bible multiple times and Im also in an Institute of higher learning for the Bible. After Pastor Frank was done prophesying I was out cold on the floor for a while. LOL, to me it's funny. Im a big tough guy ( 6'2 250 lb. ) I have never been knocked out by anyone but the pastor knocks me out. I have been walking with God this whole time and it's the best thing that has ever happened to me. The feeling is indescribable. I have said this testimony a couple of times on the internet, on t.v. or even when I walk around my city evangelizing to the lost and I notice the power behind it. So I wanted to share it with you too. Let the Lord be glorified in everything I said. If it wasn't for him I would be 6 feet under and sent to eternal fire. Which personally I did deserve. His mercy and grace has turned me into a powerful man of God that is fighting for his Kingdom. I live, breathe and walk just for the kingdom of God. May this message touch those that need it and have my brothers and sisters rejoice in this miracle. Thank you for your time. God Bless Love you All. May peace, love and grace of GOD Be upon you, AMeN ABBA My Heavenly father, Look over your people in Israel and all over the world, May you be merciful and guide us with the holy spirit to full fill our purpose in life. Crucify my fleshly desires, so your will could be done over my life. And may you bless my enemies, which they don't know what they do. It's my pleasure and honor to live and die for your name. I love you and worship you for all the days in my life, iN the name Of JeSuS, Amen
