Back somewhere in 1995-96 I was in bed one night when the word of the Lord came clearly to me. That word was “Matthew 10:27″ I was a new believer and not familiar with the word in those days, I turned over and said I’ll look at Mathew 10:27 in the morning.”No you will forget by then go now.” I knew the voice was the Lords voice so I got up and went to the kitchen table and sat down to read it.
As I read the word I began to be afraid. I knew it was the Call of God, I knew that i was in no way capable of preaching anything, dark or light. And I knew that I could never shout out a word from the housetops. I went back to bed and thought about the word I knew there must be a way, but I didn’t know that God himself would make it happen.
Looking back today I see all the ways in which he did make it happen for the next few years. I became involved in men’s ministries, and sometimes preached in our local Church. I often witnessed and preached one on one, never pushy never rude, just gracious. I was called of God to do that and I knew my call. Then things happened, as my church got tangled up with the “Mystic Prophetic” I forgot my call and became snared for a few years with the madness that then prevailed this movement. that was all the time that was needed for me to lose my wife, family, home, and health. I already had health issues I had fibromyalgia, and I had brain issues from several MTBI’s nonetheless my health crashed. In the years that followed I became an outcast and a recluse as my health got worse, still I shared the gospel but not from the same internal place but more as an onlooker. Just last night a lady posted a verse on Instagram which referred to Matt 10:27 and instantly I remembered that “This is my call!” I grieved, I prayed, and I decided that If God would allow me I would write, and speak again. Lord let it be I pray. I know there is no life without you and that Christ in me is the only hope of glory at all. amen.
