ARE YOU A DISCIPLE OF JESUS CHRIST?
"See I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord will bless you in the land which you go to possess." Deuteronomy 30:15,16
Being born again and baptized in the Holy Spirit radically changed my life! I was delivered and healed, set free and filled but I gravitated back into the world as I prospered in the Lord, life was good!
God sent a man to minister to me for a year about the true ministry of Jesus, laying his life down that I might know the truth! We prayed every morning at my office and one morning Jesus walked in! I couldn't see Him or hear Him in the natural but in the Spirit I knew it was Him. He told me to come with Him to an old cemetery in Aurora Texas where I used to go as a kid. As we arrived the wind was blowing the old sign which said, "I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live."
I pulled down to an old brush arbor and the Lord began to tell me I was like Lazarus when He called him out of the grave, wrapped in grave clothes. He said the wrappings were the things of the world I had become entangled in and He said to me, "Choose this day whom you will serve!" I said, "Lord, I choose you!" When I got back to the office a constable was there to serve me with papers from the debts I had incurred when I was addicted to drugs and I ended up going bankrupt for half million dollars!
Now when He had said these things, He cried out with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth!" And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with grave clothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Loose him, and let him go!" John 11:43,44
