Aaron's testimony "From A Drug Addict Athiest To A Believer Of Jesus Christ" on 2/16/2015, 5:14am...
My name is Aaron, and this is a testimony of how God changed my life completely. When i was a child my dad used to take me to church on Sunday's. Up until I was 11 years ago did I stop going to church. Throughout my life I always thought that church was extremely boring and meaningless. I had major doubts about God and did not believe in Him simply because I didn't see Him. From that point of my life I grew up through my years of school living just like everybody else.
I started to get into drugs at 17 years. Smoking Marijuana everyday with friends. Luckily in my life I witnessed my friends go down the tubes When they did ecstasy, cocaine, marijuana, cigarettes, alcohol, prescription pills, whipping canisters, shrooms, and acid. Many of which are still in those drugs today. I witnessed them and saw how the drugs changed their lives not for the good but for the worse. I made a vow within myself that I will never become like that. But I decided to smoke weed because I believed it wasn't bad at all.
Friends told me that weed can never be addicting. So in believing that lie I went all out with it. Before I knew it I became addicted to weed and got drunk every weekend. For those of you that are reading this. I want to inform that marijuana is very much addicting and side effects that happened to me was loss of appetite; only be hungry when I'm high, loss of sleep; would not be able to sleep without getting high, life was not fun; started feeling like the only way I could have fun was when I was on drugs. Loss of memory. All types of bad side effects.
Started getting evil thoughts and self conscious thoughts about those around me. I felt my life was not turning out the way I wanted it to be... I started getting tired of smoking everyday but felt like I was trapped because all my friends smoked!
I got so tired of my life that I literally yelled in my car by myself in frustration saying "WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE!!!!" On that same day I went and got high at a friends house. That night while I was high I watched a very interesting black and white video about being successful... In the video it said "this might be the most important thing that you will ever do in your entire life, write this down on a piece of paper" this very much got my attention because I wanted my life to improve. I grabbed a paper and a pencil and then it said "write: Ask and shall be given you, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened. To everyone that asketh receiveth, and he who seeketh findeth and to him that knocketh it shall be opened" little did I know that what I wrote was a scripture from the bible.
Again at that time I did not know anything about the bible. I had no idea what I had just written down. I just followed that simple instruction because the video said that it might be the most important thing I ever do in my life. I put the piece of paper in my wallet and 5 days later.. I was invited to go to a business meeting. When I went to this business meeting I met a man named Ray. I sat down with this man and he said "I know you.." He started reading my entire life. Started telling me how I have been feeling, what I was doing, what my friends were doing, how my personality was, etc. just laying down my entire life before me.
I was shaking in the table because I have never met this man in my entire life and there is absolutely no one that I know that could do such a thing. Immediately my body was shaking and I was very afraid. I asked him how do you know these things about me and he replied God is the one that has revealed these things to me about you. I was so shaken by this experience that I started to believe that there very much is a God beyond my own understanding. That is when I received the Holy Spirit in my life and confessed Jesus as my Lord and Savior. On top of this experience while i was talking with this man he told me "ask and it shall be given you, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened" when I heard him say this my mind was so blown that I could not contain myself I immediately took that piece of paper out of my wallet and showed it to him.. I had wrote that 5 days before I met him.. From a video that told me it might be the most important thing I would ever do in my life... Indeed it was the most important thing I ever did!!!!
At that point I knew that God was very very real.. And on top of this he also revealed to me things that were going to happen to me.. He told me that my friends will not want me to change from my evil ways and the devil will use them to make you stay at the same old same old." He said "right when you leave me tonight, the devil is going to call you" right when I left him that night not even a minute after I left him my phone rang, it was one my best friends at the time. I was afraid because he had just told me the devil is gonna call me! Little did I know that it was one of my best friends!!
When I answered my friend said "Ahh don't listen to that guy he's full of it!!! Come to Thomas's house and smoke!! You know, the same old same old." I was so afraid at this point because the man Ray warned me about this exact thing happening.. He even said that my friends will say "same old same old". On top of this incident another thing happened regarding my family. Ray warned me again that my own family (who are not bible believing Christians) are going to come against me to try and bring me back into drugs.. This sounded wildly crazy and impossible because my parents have never encouraged me to do drugs ever in my life.
On that same night on the dinner table my mom started telling me "it's totally okay for you to do drugs your still young. You should live life" another prophecy that came true. Only confirming that the power of God is very real and I am a witness.
Lastly the third prophecy that happened to me was that Ray had warned me again that my father wanted to have lunch with me for the reason that my old drug friends that I cut off from my life were knocking on the door of my house convincing my dad to get me to go back with them so the devil could bring me back into bondage. I sit down on the table with my dad. We talk and then he says "oh yeah your friends came by the house the other day, they are very concerned about you. You should call them. You should spend time with them" when he said that it was so scary that everything that the man of God said in my life came true. Truly he is a prophet of the most high God.
Everything that happened here all happened within the scale of 2 weeks! Truly God is real and he wants to change your life today! He says "Today if you will hear his voice, harden not your hearts" he also says that "he is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance"
Heaven and Hell is real. the Bible is very real. Our enemy the devil is also very real. Jesus Christ died on that cross because of the sins that we have committed against God. God loves you very much and I am a witness to the almighty power of the living God!! I testify that truly because of Jesus Christ I am saved from Hell.
The Bible says repent meaning to turn away from our sins and believe and follow the Lord Jesus Christ! He says in His word "Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, no man comes to the Father but only through Jesus Christ" God wants us to have a relationship with Him. He loves us so much that he's willing to forgive and forget all the things we have done in the past. It is by God's mercy that you are still alive today!
Please turn to the Lord and no longer go your way but follow God's way which brings the greatest peace and love on this earth. If there is an emptiness in your heart then God will be the one to fill that gap. The scripture says no man can separate us from the love of Christ. The love of Christ is more powerful then any drug I have Ever taken. It is the greatest feeling and peace in life!!! Amen. Praise the Lord for his great power!!
