I was involved in an all out war for my soul and health. If you have read my testimony, you know that I prayed about 71/2 years ago and told God "Whatever you have to do to change me, just do it, give me a vision of heaven or hell, just spare my life." He honored that. My life up to that point in 2005, was going nowhere. I had no idea when I prayed that it would lead to my seven years in hell.
The first part of this journey was for my poor character to be changed and transformed. My spiritual life was transformed. I also wanted to be healed and was. The last year and a half was to learn about how I could help others receive their healing. God opened up the Book of Acts to me. I am not saying this to boast. It was like I was delivered out of Egypt, got to the edge of the promised land, and then the devil clobbered me as I tried to enter in. Then I finally got in and then ran into a giant and got clobbered even worse. It was a spiritual battle against the forces of darkness that words cannot even describe. First, the devil was trying to stop me from getting healed. Then after I got healed, he threw every thing he had at me when I was believing God to use me to be a teaching of these principles.
God told me as long as I keep my eyes on Jesus its over. I took them off for a brief moment last April, and was knocked down for a period of time. But I got back up! I had to face the giants, and this time through Christ, he helped me to beat them. He is such a good God!!!
Hebrews 12:1-3 (NKJV) Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross,
despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. The Discipline of God 3 For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.
