Making it to Heaven from Here

Discussion in 'Introduction' started by Obinna, Jun 18, 2018.

  1. I was born into a Muslim family. My father married more than 4 women and the children were all compelled to memorize the Koran. Later, I was sent to Senegal from my home State of Zamfara. We were taught to hate Christians and to prepare for their extermination. During one of my trips to Egypt, I met Muslim Cleric who instead of teaching Islam started propagating the gospel. He was doing it on a low key but I exposed him, when he was being killed, he asked for forgiveness and the grace for us to know what he knew. I was shocked to know that a Muslim would convert to Christianity and die with such charity.
    I decided that I will touch the Bible, I began reading it and the new Testament especially came with such powerful influence that I have never experienced in my life before. I could not keep quiet as I began sharing with others the truth therein.
    I was banned from my family and many attempts on my life caused my escape.
    A Pastor received me and gave me shelter and I told him that I want to make heaven, I want to be baptized. Ever since then I have not seized to proclaim the good news to all men.

  8. "That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise." (Ephesians 1:12-13)

  10. Thank you so much and God bless you. The Bible stated it clearly that" Iron sharpens Iron". What more is important than a forum of fellowship, where we can learn and strengthen each other. As we share testimonies, we will encourage each other to remain steadfast to Christ till the end. I believe God that talkjesus will build my faith and impact positively in my life.
