This book, much like the following testimony, will change your life and challenge you to take a stand. Against what? Get yourself a copy and you will be happy you did.
I remember it as though it was yesterday; approximately 25 years ago I went to a Pentecostal altar where I tarried for the baptism of the Holy Spirit. I was told that if I truly repented and turned from my sins, I would receive the gift of the Holy Spirit and speak in a heavenly language when the Holy Spirit comes. I was hopeful but skeptical even though I had heard other people speak in tongues. I recalled being scared and uncertain about what to expect, when a strange thing happened and I felt something moving within me. I immediately felt a fear come over me and at that time I asked God to give me whatever he had for me in two seconds so I could get it over with real fast.
I kid you not, within 2 seconds I heard myself speaking in a language I did not understand and I was not faking it. But the best part was not the language; it was the presence of almighty God that came over me. He took a hold of me and placed me in a totally different realm. It was like someone took me in a bubble that floated through the sky, I floated for a long time while speaking in tongues. My feet were light and my heart felt clean. I never felt love like that before or after. It was a MAGIC MOMENT with the almighty God that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
Whenever life’s challenges come my way I just recall that experience and it gives me the push to go on. I know I can make it because of that experience.
For those of you out there who doubt that you can make it, or you feel like you can’t carry on I admonish you to go back to your archive and pull out one of your most treasured experiences with God and it WILL propel you to go on. I promise!
