“Empowering the abused woman to recover with God's truth"
To God be the glory for my life!!! If it was not for God on my side, I would not be here today!!! I always say, because it is true, if God would not have been with me, and kept me, when I was going through ALL the mess I was in, I would be in either of these three places:
1. Dead and in hell – the devil tried to kill me humpteen many times. I actually died once from an overdose of pills, and alcohol. It was an accident – I took pills for allergies, and drank alcohol, not knowing I was not supposed to!! BUT GOD brought me back to life HIMSELF!!
I was at home in Germany when it happened. I couldn’t call anyone for help – I had passed out across my bed. Next thing I knew, I was floating through this tunnel, and I saw an opening at the end of it, that was like daylight. But THANK GOD, HE brought me back to LIFE, before I went through the end of that tunnel!!! Because I would have gone to hell – I had gone back into the world, after accepting Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. Plus, I was committing adultery. Although I was separated from my husband, I was still married. And the guy was right there with me when I passed out!! He didn’t know what to do – he wasn’t saved either!!
But God loves me sooooo very much, UNCONDITIONALLY, HE HIMSELF BROUGHT ME BACK FROM THE DEAD!!! AND GOD CHANGED MY LIFE AFTER THAT!! But I had to CHOOSE Him; I had to come into AGREEMENT with God before He could change me – God is NOT going to violate our FREE WILL!! God asked me a question, as to did I want to change, or did I want to stay the same? And of I course, I told Him I wanted to change!! You might say, “How did God speak to you?” God spoke to me in my spirit – I heard Him CLEARLY!! And after I came into FULL AGREEMENT with GOD’S plans for my life, GOD gave me the NEXT STEP for my life!!! I left that guy, and moved back to the States with my stepmother in FL. And that is where GOD TOTALLY DELIVERED me, after my stepmother, and the Evangelist next door prayed for me!! And that CHANGED my life!!!!
Why am I sharing this? To give MY GOD, MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS, AND MY HOLY SPIRIT, ALL PRAISE, HONOR, AND GLORY FOR MY LIFE!!!! I LOVE YOU FATHER, I LOVE YOU JESUS, I LOVE YOU HOLY SPIRIT!!!
2. The second place that I would have been if GOD would not have been with me, and kept me, is in prison for murder!!! The devil tried to get me to kill the last abusive husband I had!! BUT THANK GOD, HE DID NOT ALLOW ME TO DO IT - HOLY SPIRIT KEPT ME FROM DOING IT, BY HAVING ME NOT LISTEN TO the enemy!!!!
The enemy told me to do it, but by Holy Spirit’s Power, I DID NOT!!! I had a choice – listen to Holy Spirit or listen to the devil!! I thank God I CHOSE to listen to Holy Spirit!! GOD WILL direct us in the right way but it’s up to us to listen to GOD!!! THANK GOD!!! IF YOU ARE IN ANY ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP, PLEASE SEEK GOD FOR YOUR WAY OF ESCAPE!!!
God later told me, after HE delivered me out of that marriage, that the devil sent that man into my life to TOTALLY destroy me!!! BUT GOD KEPT ME!!!! God warned me MANY times, through MANY people, saved, and unsaved, NOT to marry that man but I married him anyway!!
PLEASE, PLEASE if God tell you, whether directly, or indirectly, NOT to marry someone, PLEASE listen!!!!
I went through over 3 and a half years of pure hell with that guy!!! BUT GOD, again, because of HIS UNCONDITIONAL LOVE FOR ME, delivered me, and DID NOT ALLOW ANY harm to come to me – even though I disobeyed Him!!
Let me put this right here, hear me by Holy Spirit, GOD DOES NOT PUT SICKNESS, OR ANY OTHER EVIL THINGS ON US!! AND GOD DEFINITEDLY DOES NOT PARTNER WITH THE devil, SO he CAN DO EVIL TO US!! IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT JOB, ASK HOLY SPIRIT TO GIVE YOU THE REAL INTERPRETATION OF THAT SCRIPTURE!! WE ARE NO LONGER UNDER THE LAW BUT GRACE AND TRUTH – JESUS HAS DEFEATED THE enemy, who is the accuser OF THE BRETHREN (Revelation 12:10)!!! GOD IS LOVE; GOD IS GOOD; GOD DOES NOT DO EVIL OR IS ASSOCIATED WITH EVIL!! NOW I WILL CONTINUE!!
JESUS is the cause of that – JESUS HAS taken ALL my sins, past, present, and future, by paying my sin debt – I AM FORGIVEN by MY ABBA FATHER (Romans 5:8; Colossians 2:9-15; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 2:13; Hebrews 9:26; John 3:16; 1 John 2:22; 1 John 3:5; 1 John 4:9)!!! AND JESUS HAS TAKEN sickness, diseases, infirmities, pain, shame, guilt, sorrow, and EVERYTHING else that comes to steal, kill, and destroy from me (John 10:10; Isaiah 53:3-5; 1 Peter 2:24)!! JESUS HAS caused me to have peace with God (Romans 5:1)!!!
Again, I am telling my testimonies, to give GOD MY FATHER, JESUS MY LORD AND SAVIOR, AND HOLY SPIRIT ALL PRAISE, HONOR, AND GLORY FOR MY LIFE!!!! I LOVE YOU FATHER, I LOVE YOU JESUS, I LOVE YOU HOLY SPIRIT!!!
3. Third place I would have been if God was not with me, and kept me, is in a mental institution!! That is what the devil spoke to me, while I was in the last abusive marriage, about putting me in a mental institution!!! I heard the devil in my head – the way he speaks to us is through our thought life by giving us suggestions!! The devil CANNOT MAKE us do ANYTHING – the only power he has over us is our own – he tricks us into doing things!! And once we yield to him, come into agreement with him, we have given him a foothold in our lives!! I thank God for HIS praying saints, who prayed for me after the devil told me that!!
I immediately called Elder Sue Graham, telling her what happened, and started screaming on the phone, and when I came to myself, after Elder Graham’s prayer broke that evil spirit from my mind, I heard Sister Geraldine Lacey’s voice. And those two Ladies, prayed me through!!! Although Sister Lacey has gone home to be with the Lord, I thank God for her, and for Elder Graham!!!
I can now laugh at the devil!! The devil can do NOTHING to me!!! I HAVE JESUS’ AUTHORITY AND POWER OF HOLY SPIRIT!!! Therefore, NO weapon of ANY kind, that is formed against me, will NOT prosper (Isaiah 57:17)!!!!
When I was not serving God, or didn’t even know Him, HE STILL PROTECTED me!!! That’s the kind of Father we have – a loving Father, Who loves us in spite of what we do or don’t do – Who loves us UNCONDITIONALLY!!!
JESUS ALREADY HAS PAID ALL OF MANKIND’S DEBTS (Colossians 1:19-20)!!!! JESUS HAS SET ALL OF MANKIND FREE FROM ALL BONDAGES AND RESTORED US TO ABBA FATHER (2 Corinthians 5:18; Colossians 2:9-15)!!! BUT mankind must accept Jesus as his/her personal Lord and Savior, to be born again!! Because we all have free wills, as I have said before, and God is NOT going to force Himself on us – we MUST come to HIM FREELY on OUR OWN accord!!!
As I said that God asked me a question. But as I was typing this message, it came to me that God basically ASKED me, what Jesus asked the man at the Pool of Bethesda (John 5:6 AMP), “Do you want to get well?” And I replied, “YES!!” I gave God, Jesus, Holy Spirit permission, to do what NEEDED to be done in the natural (it had already been done in the spirit), to physically bring me out of the place I was in!!
I believe God is asking someone that question right now: “Do YOU want to be made well?” If “YES,” JESUS ALREADY HAS provided YOUR way of escape, out of WHATEVER bondage you are in!!!
There is NOTHING too hard for God!! GOD HAS ALREADY RESCUED YOU THROUGH JESUS (1 John 1:9-10)!! All you have to do, is say, “YES,” to what God HAS DONE for YOU THROUGH JESUS, by accepting Jesus as YOUR personal LORD AND SAVIOR, and watch how God WILL change YOUR life, as He did mine!!!
Why not give your life, your heart to Jesus, by accepting Him as YOUR personal LORD AND SAVIOR, so He can take you to the Father, and Holy Spirit will immediately change you in your spirit and God, Jesus, Holy Spirit will take up abode in YOU – will come and live in YOUR spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)!! God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, loves YOU UNCONDITIONALLY, and is waiting for YOU to run to Them!! Why wait any longer?
