    BUT GOD GRACE AND MERCY. To GOD be the Glory. Thank You JESUS. An encounter with GOD and JESUS. My Testimonial !. Must Read ! WOW !. I am a Vietnam Vet. This is very powerful. For I myself travel down this lonely road. The hurt , pain, sorrows, and no where to lay my head. over 20 years homeless, Lost everything:, Wife & Families. Gave up on life. Till one day GOD knock me down on all fours. ended up 3 months in a hospital. With gangrene .Leg to be amputated . A hospital Chaplin came and prayed over me. For the very 1st. time I tasted DEATH !. GOD showed me the bottomless pit. Never hit bottom; For it was bottomless, I was then lifted up by the right hand of GOD. From where I fell , I look across and saw 100s of people falling in to the bottomless pit. It was like a bad dream. BUT it was no dream. As I was going up toward the light, I felt a mist of running waters. Suddenly the pain on my leg left me, All of my sorrows vanish, It was a wonderful felling. NOW I WAS FRIGHTEN !. I look all around myself. A brightness like no other. To my left , 12 shadows of men putting my business out. Judgement Day. Judgement Day is no joking mater. To where yout own soul is your prosecutor. I was Guilty. Behind these men came a large ball of fire, Bright as the sun. I back up and looked into the fire. Just to see a man in the fire. IT WAS JESUS CHRIST !. Before me. in his full GLORY !. Trust me All knees will bow !. I threw myself on the floor. So ashamed of myself. Afraid to even to look and gaze upon his presents. Look down on the floor: Jesus came up to me. Place his feet under my face. WOW ! . JESUS is very real. Jesus shook his right finger down at me and chastised me. Then spoke these very WORDS to me ! YOU NOW WORK FOR ME.!. He love me so much that he forgave me. JESUS said to me . GO BACK AND TELL THE WORLD TO WHAT YOU HAVE SEEN .When I woke up, I was healed 100% . Doctors were baffle. Today I am on a mission for JESUS CHRIST as a pastor. It was the love of my savior. GRACE.

    Victor, that is a wonderful story! He preformed a miracle on me one time that no one on earth would have know I needed and he did it 5 min. I am not just some old man that is talking out of his head either I hung up the phone and prayed to God to help me and in 5 min I called back and everything I asked for was fixed and after that I could feel his presents in my bed room at night and it was the most wonderful feeling I have ever had so my friends he is real! He fixed a serious problem for me in 5 min and I will never forget it!

When was the last time , If you ever had yourself a one on one conversation with your Lord and Savior, JESUS CHRIST...It's so important to have yourself a serious relationship with your JESUS !. JESUS is the way. The only way. Call on his name. To what ever storms you are facing in your life. Give your heaviness to your Lord and Savior. He knows everything about you. And what you are facing. JESUS is waiting for all of you who reads this. That he wants you to take your prayers to the next level. Like may I have taught. And gave them a DARE. I dare you to try JESUS. YES !. It is so simple . Now I am sharing with you to what my Lord and Savior revealed to me. GO into your secret place.

    Praise God for His mighty working in your life to bring you to the point of realizing your own worthlessness in the light of the great worth & call of a loving Saviour to you. A mighty testimony indeed you shared. As I read it, I thought of Gen. William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army (1829-1912) who too was a mighty man of God & shared some great insights to the plight of mankind & their needs. Quotes such as:

    "Most Christians would like to send their recruits to Bible college for five years. I would like to send them to hell for five minutes. That would do more than anything else to prepare them for a lifetime of compassionate ministry."

    "If you want to change the future, then you are going to have to trouble the present."

    "I am not waiting for a move of God, I am a move of God!"

    "I consider that the chief dangers which confront the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, and heaven without hell."

    "Some men's passion is for gold. some men's passion is for art. some men's passion is for fame. my passion is for souls."

    "The greatness of a man's power is the measure of his surrender."

    "Faith and works should travel side by side, step answering to step, like the legs of men walking. First faith, and then works; and then faith again, and then works again--until they can scarcely distinguish which is the one and which is the other."

    "Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear Him bid you go and pull sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity, and listen to its pitiful wail for help."

    "Some of my best men are women!"

    "Go straight for souls, and go for the worst."

    You may read his other great quotations by googling Quotations by Gen. William Booth. May the Lord bless you in your ministry, using you to pull out many from the fires of hell.
