The Resurrection of Jesus Christ and Testimonies of Divine Intervention Part Two:
When I left home I began seeking more diligently, but the conflicts among Christian denominations left me confused. So I simply believed Jesus died for our sins, thanked Him and repented daily with what little faith I had, due to lack of deeper spiritual experiences or insights and conflicting teachings that had been passed down without question. No one spoke about the power of the Holy Spirit or introduced me to Him, until one evening at home in 1978, I was told about Him during a simple conversation. What transpired was in truth an answer to previous private prayers. I wanted to know if there was more to being a Christian than what I had experienced or heard thus far; I wanted to know His truth if that were possible.
So in 1978, a perfect present moment arrived for me when I heard about the awakening-transformative-regenerative power of His Holy Spirit within, our need to be born anew as heirs with Christ, and in the process have our minds renewed. I pondered over this revelation, and with a sincere, totally repentant, thus surrendered heart I went directly to my finite concept of Omni God as our Creator seeking the truth of what I had heard thus far, asking for His truth, if He were real.
Among other things I said to our Father, “if you exist, show me in a way I cannot deny. I want to know and love You as much as possible in this lifetime and beyond, and become who You created me to be. I desire that You be blessed in return. I want You to teach me and guide me and open Scriptures to me as I heard you want to do. If this is true, I want to be born of Your Holy Spirit so I can live the life You had in mind when You created me; and if possible I want the sin nature to have no power over me. If it is true, please can Your Spirit empower me to overcome the sin within so You and Your Son can be glorified?” While seeking to pray in the spirit as I heard would take place by faith, instantly my soul was awakened to the reality of the Spirit of God and the eternal realm of His Spirit through a vision. I was taken back before the foundations of the world to receive the mind and power of Christ through His union with our Father with spiritual insight as an heir. Through the revelatory power of His poured out love and a quickening of His Spirit within, in the spirit I saw us die with Christ and that we rose with Him in the Spirit before the foundations of the world. I came to understand in that moment I am now an awakened eternal Spiritual being. I can now experience a loving, living intimate relationship with the Spirit of God as an heir with Jesus Christ and others of His choosing, as His Spirit teaches me and leads me into all truth during my journey in time; according to His plan for my life. This was, and still is a humbling experience...
I write and share about what took place and what I have experienced since, which causes me to be conscious of the Omnipresence of the Spirit of God as the loving Creator of all that is, was and is to come. We need such testimonies now more than ever, so I urge you to share more openly and intimately than ever before and I will seek to do so with you.
