I became "truly" saved on February 24th 2007. The reason I say "truly" is because for many, many years I read the scriptures, sought the right church and yet never felt I was saved. There was always a sense of guilt and condemnation and a big void in my life that kept me seeking and searching for Jesus Christ.
Then on February 24th 2007 my search ended!
I had been floating around the internet and came across Apostle Eric's site that had a video "Clemency to The Nations". I decided to watch it and not only felt and urgency at that time, but also felt a peace I had never experienced my entire life. This was Gods wonderful grace drawing faith from my heart to come into covenant with Him and learn of Christ.
I had known for many years that the church was in need of restoration and revival, but yet couldn't find a church that wasn't all fleshy hype and preaching money, money, money. There just never was anything being taught that gave me what the scriptures promised, like peace, joy, love, unity in the faith, etc.etc.
I have come to learn and understand that I had only learned some of the fundamentals of the truth in Christ and that I had no foundation in Him. I wanted to serve God in Spirit and Truth, as He says those who love Him will do, but I didn't know how until I came into covenant under apostolic governance and took on the yoke that Christ says is easy.
This truth in Christ has made all the difference in the world for me!Today I have assurance of salvation, I know what pleases God, I know how to walk in perfect faith, I know what the tools of the covenant are and I have now "returned to my first love, Christ and I do the first works" as commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ in Revelation 2:4-5.
Everyday the Lord sends His grace to me to draw faith from my heart that I may continue to serve Him in righteousness. I have experienced many, many dreams, visions, words of knowledge and wisdom, and countless other manifestations of His grace that He promises to give so that I may know him. This is a big difference from the nightmares that haunted me before covenant and kept me in a state of fear.
How very wonderful God is,I could literally write a book on the many things the Lord has taught me through His government,done in my soul and the many manifestations of His grace...truly the Lord is worthy of all praise and glory!
I pray my testimony of faith will bring hope for all my friends and a desire for a closer walk with the Lord.
I offer this doxology of faith for your edification;
"Hope is made living for Gods covenant children as we walk in His light, where we remain tethered to His throne and rooted in Christ"
Reflecting On Christ,
Loving God, Loving OthersHow do you typically identify someone as being a believer in Jesus?
