21 Years in the Light!

| 27 Comments

Today is my 21st re-birthday, the day I bowed my knee to Jesus Christ and gave my life to Him. It’s an annual tradition for me to post my testimony of how I came to faith.

Here are some highlights:

  • One night while searching for witches’ covens in an open field at midnight, I challenged Satan to show himself. He did.
  • I was also robbed at shotgun point by drug dealers (as a meth addict I didn’t have much discernment in friends).
  • I broke into a “friend’s” mobile home and stole some equipment in broad daylight.
  • I knocked on the apartment doors of strangers looking for a wife; I found a lost key and tried opening neighbor’s doors with it. The television spoke directly to me. Then I got a very clear vision that I was headed for Hell if I didn’t die….

  1. Glad you’re not an addict anymore and all that, but the Satan stuff made my day.

    • Hayzoose

      I’m praying that you will leave the service of Satan and worship the Lord Jesus Christ. God will forgive you and give you a new life if you repent and put your trust in Him.

    • I will pray for you too Hayzoose. I pray that a good Christian comes into your life and does something profoundly kind to you so that you will see that all Christians aren’t what you think they are.

  2. Happy Re-birthday Pastor Steve!

    Thank you for sharing your testimony.

    I hope all of the atheists who momentarily leave the darkness of their own websites and enter into the light of this website will read your words.

    Hopefully the atheists will REPENT and BELIEVE the Gospel and enter into a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and have a Re-birthday of their own.

  3. Steve, praise God for a new life He gave you! 2Cor 5:17! Be faithful in your ministry at home, at HC and out there on the streets reaching out the lost! God bless you, brother!

  4. Way to go Steve-o! Wonderful testimony, it’s good for folks to hear that Jesus is still in the same business He’s always done: Saving sinners, one at a time by bringing them to repentance and faith. It’s a beautiful thing! Isn’t it amazing that He pursues us the way He does? He did me too. The most wonderful gift of all.

    Happy BA Birthday. =)

  5. OK, Steve, I apologize for being a realist here, but… well…

    The television spoke directly to me.

    So that was a hallucination.

    I challenged Satan to show himself. He did.

    …huh…

    O_o

  6. Today is your spiritual birthday. Congratulations!! You have fulfilled what Jesus commanded, “You must be born again”. I’m so thankful to have a brother like you and I wish you many more birthday celebrations. It is amazing how patient God was with you and how patient he is with all of us!!!

  7. In all seriousness, I’m glad that you were able to kick that meth habit, Steve, and that you’re clean and sober now.

    Congratulations to you! 😀

  8. You saw the devil, so that means you have a golden fiddle, right?

  9. Praise the Lord Steve!!

  10. Happy Birthday!
    Nice blog!! I will add this address on my blog 🙂 (in polish… :))

    God Bless You!!

  11. Happy Rebirth Day Steve. You have a great conversion story. God bless you and your fellow workers in Christ.

  12. Wow, what a powerful witness for God! Praise the LORD in the highest!!!

    Congratulations Steve on your rebirth day! Thanks so much for sharing your road to Damascus story. You have been a incredible encouragement to me, thanks much.

    God Bless You, Steve!

  13. Witches covens, robbery, meth addiction, and the devil himself, blah, blah, blah.

    I don’t believe a word of this and nor should anyone else.

  14. @ Steve:
    A man in India in a similar situation would see Kali or Shiva. My brothers and I have had OBE’s in the past. These can be scary experiences. Dennis said he saw a devil sitting on his chest. Now mind you, that these events usually happened when in a sleep state, or near sleep state. The mind can conjure up all sorts of images, but usually are associated with ones that we are more familiar with. I for one have never seen a “devil” on my chest. Having OBE’s has not convinced me of an afterlife since my brain still tries to figure out what it is seeing during these events.

    Now in the context of your story, it seems that your mind was put under quite a strain and you were most likely suffering from hallucinations. Positive note: you are not a druggie any more because of this event. Negative note: you became an addict of a different sort. Historical note: peoples of all religions in the past and present used/use drugs. Side note: there is more evidence of aliens then there is of God.

  15. Steve can you remind me how the devil showed himself to you?
