A True Testimony of Christ and the Salvation of Souls

Unread postby thephoenix » July 2nd, 2016, 2:01 pm

When I was a 9 year old boy and loving the Lord, I saw Jesus in all white, dressed as a shepherd standing on the wing of an airplane while it was still boarding. I erroneously thought that someone was trying to play a trick on me to make me become highly religious. Then I became agnostic and got lost for 35 years. I began hearing, seeing, wrestling with the unseen and witnessing powers of the invisible spirit world. Evil spirits had come into my life as a consequence of my sin.

I've lost touch with reality(was deceived) and nearly died at the hands of these devils - both human and demon alike. I've noticed that the humans lose their family and friends. They are scattered throughout the netherworld. They have anger and hatred in their hearts. They are masters at the art of deception. Their evil will not stop without divine intervention and restoration of the soul. They thirst for all that only a most loving Creator can give them. I have discovered that it is the human condition that we are evil and wicked without God in the afterlife. The soul is in ruins and in need of salvation.

1 Peter 4:6. For this reason the gospel is also preached to the dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in spirit.

Father God reached out to me and I heard Him say, "the battle against good and evil has been here since the beginning of time." God battle's evil by salvaging souls through His Son, Jesus Christ. The Father's voice sounds of greatness not of this world. The room was filled with an ancient scent from a world long ago. God had done this to let me know that He was there in the beginning of man's time.

I suffered at the hands of these devils for seven years before learning that they were real and hence Jesus as well. This is how Jesus had found me to begin my undeserving vocation to be an adopted child of God. He left the flock to find that one lost sheep when I saw Him on the wing of that airplane 35 years earlier.

Luke 15:4-7. What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost."

I prayed to Jesus that He would not leave me here to be evil like these people. He put my deceased mother behind me. And the most loving scent of her holding me as a child came over me. Jesus had done this to let me know it was her. He was letting me know that I would be with my mom and that He would deliver me from this evil condition known as hell.

I asked Jesus who these spirits were persecuting me. He told me through the Spirit of truth that they were the dead. I could see that they were lost and inquired about them going to heaven. Jesus had sent down the Holy Spirit stopping in front of me and pointing at me. He was telling me that I would make atonement for them. And that He would forgive them for their sins and deliver them into heaven. Glory be to the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. They truly are mighty to save.

2 Maccabees 12:46. Thus they made atonement for the dead that they might be freed from this sin.

Later, I had a dream were Jesus had removed the anger and hatred from these poor souls hearts. He was informing that the work for atonement had been done. Then with His powers going through me, He turned them back because the work could not be accepted until the door to my hearing and seeing them was closed. I am currently working on this.

Also, an angel had made himself known to me. I have had many visions and dreams, some arranged by God and by the power of the higher angels, guiding me away from sin, in truth toward salvation. I thank God for my sufferings and wisdom gained. I am looking forward to being with God in heaven, seeing these spirit's made good, and seeing my mom again.

This testimony was written for the glory of Christ.

Revelations 12:11. "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony."

Joel 2:28. "And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and daughters shall prophesy; your old men shall dream dreams; your young men shall see visions."

Jesus had appeared to me in what was most likely the same white that the angels appeared in scripture.

John 20:12. And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain.

The Father's voice would not be deceiving.

Psalm 99:2. The LORD is great in Zion, And He is high above all the peoples.

Power wisps around His words as He speaks.

Psalm 34:7. The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them.

Once, the angel was beginning to be covered, starting with his wings, in the same white that I had seen Jesus in. Anyone in the visible world can see this white. After one of my struggles with the devils, he had laid his head on mine to show that he was there and cared. They are very loving creatures. Another time, he was calling out my name. His voice is more beautiful than any voice I have heard in this world.

When Jesus had found me, in a vision, He introduced me to Saint Peter.

John 21:16. He said to him again a second time, "Simon, son of John, do you love Me?" He said to Him, "Yes Lord, you know that I love You." He said to Him, "Shepherd my sheep."

Saint Peter holds the keys to heaven.

Mathew 17:18-19. And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."

I find this to be a most loving thing that Father God and His Son do for their people.

Genesis 25:8. Then Abraham breathed his last and died in a good old age, an old man full of years, and was gathered to his people.

I would like to share some poetry I had written during my struggles.

evil spirits -

in my closet
under my bed
outside my window
in my head

wanting me in hell
giving me a choice
to my decline
i hear their voice

about some demons
in and out of my dreams
except for their powers
they go unseen

God knows where I've been
evil spirits driving me insane
being defiled through sin
there's nothing to gain

for deliverance
obedience is clear
I pray to my Savior
to always be near


I have both seen and had conversations with demons. One told me that it was his job to do evil to me. I was also told that they settle their differences with violence. I was possessed twice by a demon masquerading as God. His deceit was short lived.

Leviticus 19:31. Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them; I am the Lord your God.

Mediums and familiar spirits involve consulting the spirits of the dead. All contact with these or other spirits was strictly forbidden in Israel. It demonstrated lack of faith in and rebellion against God.

1 Peter 5:8-11. Be sober and vigilant. Your opponent the devil is prowling around like a roaring lion looking for [someone] to devour. Resist him, steadfast in faith, knowing that your fellow believers throughout the world undergo the same sufferings. The God of all grace who called you to His eternal glory through Christ [Jesus] will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you after you have suffered a little. To him be dominion forever. Amen.

Before and After

Jesus had removed the anger and hatred from the dead's hearts with His powers. They went from varying shades of darkness to white. Their souls are restored before going to heaven to be with God, Jesus, the angels, family and friends.

1 Peter 1:23. having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever, because “All flesh is as grass, And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass. The grass withers, And its flower falls away, But the word of the Lord endures forever.”

My God is mighty to save.



Zephaniah 3:17. The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”

God calls out to mankind to accept His grace in Christ for the salvation of their souls.

Romans 10:9-10. that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
