I was birthed into this world by parents who were involved in the Lutheran church. I was water baptized as an infant and was involved in the Lutheran church until the age of 16 when alcohol, sex, cigarettes, drugs, cars, etc. became my gods for awhile. Starting in 1979, Jesus Christ began removing my addictions as I went through the process of confessing all my sins and repenting of them. I became born of God on June 28th, 1984 during a non-denominational church service and in June of 2008, God empowered me with the Holy Spirit that Jesus promised his Father would do to those who he chose. Now, as a new creature in Christ with the mind of Christ, I am no longer under the influence of the Devil. That doesn't mean I'm not living in the world around me that's influenced by the Devil but I have no fear of that deceiving power anymore. I know it will be destroyed on the day of the Lord soon. I'm here to meet those who believe in the Holy Spirit of God that gives them life without fear of the Devil and those who are struggling with that deceiving power in their lives but are chosen as believers. The rest of you who don't understand the indwelling of the Holy Spirit of God will perish without experiencing the power of God. Don't worry, you will hear his voice after you perish that the Father had Jesus speak to those who were chosen to believe the gospel of God. John 5: 25: "Truly, truly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. 26: For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself, 27: and has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of man. 28: Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice.
