Barbara's Testimony of Saving Grace

I was saved in July, 1974 Praise God
I remember like it was yesterday. I just kept thinking well I am not that bad, and maybe when I get older I will get saved, I have too much living to do now, sound like familiar lies from Satan? Well he had me pretty blinded, I had been a terrible person, deep in sin, and so as not to give glory to Satan in any way, I will not expound on these sins. My husband had gotten saved, and he kept telling me ,"Oh the Lord is coming back and I am going to heaven, and honey you are not going to be able to go unless you ask Christ to save you. Well I went two weeks watching,keeping my distance from his christian visitors, and wondering how the Lord could save a rascal like my husband, then one Sunday we had gone to church,we came home and everyone was in the bedroom was napping, but me, I was on the sofa in the living room, I never napped there, see God had it all set up from the beginning, well any how this man come up to the door, know as brother Jack, he had led my DH to the Lord, and he started talking about the Lord, and asking If I were to die today was I 100% sure I would go to heaven, I was only 31 yeaars old at the time, did he know something I didn't know, was I sick, or what, and of coarse I had no where to run or hide, he had got me, and the Lord was working in my heart big time by now, and I could feel the heat, and feel my face flushed, and still wanting to run and hide, then finally I just broke down, the Lord broke through all barriers, and I cried out! NO I AM NOT SURE!! Jack said wouldn't you like to be sure, Well yeah, I answered, so he read many scriptures, and I could feel the Lord tugging at my heart, and I kept thinking , no, no, no, and finally a peace came over me, and I cryingly, and exhaustingly, bowed my head and asked Christ to forgive me of my sins, and cleanse my heart from all evil, and to come live inside of my soul, oh Jesus I cried out save me,save me now Lord!! save me! And guess what? He did; Amen and amen, and I have never been the same since, Oh I love to tell this Testimony, I always said Satan thought he had me all tied up,snug and fast asleep, his big mistake was he left me alone, and when he came back, Well GLORY, I belonged to another Master.I had made Jesus my Saviour, and I belonged to Him now. Praise God!! Don't you know how upset Satan was at that, and wow, did he start to attack us then, he surely was not going to let us be happy in serving the Lord.. But.. Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world!! And my God has proven it over and over again through my Christian life, well even before I was saved I can look back and see His mighty hand leading me. I think the smartest, and the dumbest thing I ever did was to promise God my children if he would make my husband whole again, My husband had been a Rock Drummer, and into many drugs, well he over dosed one night, and I thought he would never come around again.. But GLORY!!! little did I know what the Lord had in store for us. But I was a lost woman calling out to God to help me, I knew I would not give myself, but offered my children in my place, (so foolish I see now) Well God did make my precious husband well again, and I did keep my promise to God... I sent my children on the Sunday School Bus faithfully for over 3 years, and then they went to a little Church, only about 3500 members,haha.. Through this loving ministry God sent the man out to our home, and he told us about Jesus,Oh what a Saviour, is this man Jesus, and the rest of the story is history.. Praise God for saving this wicked old soul.. And for those of you who do not know, My husband is a Pastor now, God delivered him from ALL evil, changed his direction in life, (this is repentance) completely.. SO ladies with lost husbands, hang in there, if God can save mine, and make him a preacher, HE surely can save yours too..

Now Pastors wives and faithful church goers, are you 100% sure you are going to heaven? if you are only 99% sure, then you are 100% lost and undone without Christ, you know Mrs Bob Gray from Jacksonville was a pastors wife for over five years before she actually got saved, she was good, grew up in a christian home, went to church, even married to a pastor, ummmm, well think on this, only you know for sure if you have the head knowledge, or the heart repentance, that is the difference, even Satan believes and trembles, so just believing is not enough, below you will see where I have made it easy for you to accept Jesus as your very own Personal Saviour, if you make this commentment please email me and let me know, God bless you all reading this.

(Salvation Is Free)

Salvation is a simple step, yet it is the most important thing you will ever do in your whole life. I want to briefly and quickly share with you the greatest gift you can possible receive. As all gifts it is FREE...

We Must First Realize that we are ALL Sinners.

Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"

That means me, you and everyone else has sinned. You see, it all started with Adam and Eve in the garden and we inherited that sin nature, which makes us all sinners.

We Must Realize that Jesus Christ Died for us.

Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."

Our payment for sin is death, meaning an eternal place in Hell, but because God sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross we have a way of escape.

I Corinthians 15:3-4 "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

We Must Accept Him as our Personal Lord and Savior

Romans 10:9,10,13 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."

Salvation is simply putting your Faith and Trust in Him. In the last verse you see "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" Today I want to replace that whosever with your name.

For _______________(YOUR NAME) Shall call upon the name of the Lord
_____________(YOUR NAME) Shall be SAVED!!!!

That is as simple as it gets. You just trust and Believe on His name you shall be saved!!

Would like today to ask him in your heart? If you do just pray this simple prayer and He WILL save you.

"Lord Jesus, I realize I am sinner and that I am in need of A Saviour. I am asking you to come into my heart and forgive me of my sins . I am placing my life in your hands, and trusting you as my Lord and Savior. Lord I Love You, and help me to live as you would have me to live.

In Jesus Name, Amen!! Glory to God.

Hugs and Prayers

Jer 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things that thou knowest not.
