When I first was called by the audible voice of the Holy Spirit, I was incredulous. I had been told by the evil organization known as the "mother church" that no such thing was possible.
However, after struggling to unleash false doctrines, and seeking God more and more, I came to a place where I believe what is written in the Bible. BECAUSE I have lived some of those things.
I have prayed for many things. God answered my prayer to pay my University of Pennsylvania tuition by giving me a store. This happened less than 12 hours after my prayer.
I joined the Marines in 1989 after the Holy Spirit told me there would be a war in the mideast. I requested and received a guarantee to learn Arabic.
In 2002, I joined the National Guard and begin reviewing Arabic. The Lord told me to do that. While in the mideast, the Holy Spirit showed me in dreams where Al-Qaida agents were working. He spoke into my ear and told me where Iranian Intel was operating.
For me, there is absolutely no question there is a living, loving, powerful God. I have no shame for Him. There is nothing better in my life.
He always comforted me. In the worst times of my life, He was there for me.
