I am not ashamed of the gospel because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes. Roman 1:16
As I remember my encounter with the Lord God, I was in the bed praying and reading the Word of God. I saw a white sheet lowering down from my ceiling and it had all sorts of ugly bugs and critters on it and as I looked at it, I heard a voice say – “These are your sins! I yelled “NO” and turned away. When I turned back they were all gone and I felt in my soul such peace and Love that I have never experienced before. Then I ran and told my husband. Then I was led by the Spirit of God to get things right. There is so much more to tell about the word of God because it is living and active. It’s sharper than any double edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit; joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. The entrance of God’s Words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple; for these commands is a lamp. This teaching is a light and the correction of discipline is the way to life – Proverbs 6:23 – Psalms 119:105.
The Holy Scriptures are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God – breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, training and righteousness. 2 Timothy 3:15-16. Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message and the message is heard through the Words of Christ. Like newborn babies, we crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you will grow up in your salvation.( 1Peter 2:2) Blessed is the one who reads the words of the Bible and blessed are those who hear it and take it to heart what is written in it, because the time is near. Revelation 1:3
Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the Word planted in you which can save you. Do not merely listen to the Word and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the Word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect low that gives freedom and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it. He will be blessed in what he does. James 1:21- 25 says for you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living enduring Word of God.
After the sheet of God came from the ceiling encounter, I read the Bible night and day. I could not put it down. I read it front to back twenty six times and I even cooked with it in one hand. I could not put it down! My husband called his mother and said that I had gone crazy reading the Bible but he did not know; he did not understand what was happening to me. God never brings bad; only good for God is a Good God!
So do not let this Book of God depart from your mouth. Meditate on it day and night so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful says Joshua 1:8. God led me by His Word and Spirit to do what I am doing now as an Unswitchable servant of the Lord, reaching souls in the streets for God’s Kingdom in the name of Jesus. Now I commit you to God and to the word of HIS Grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all these who are sanctified.
