Overcoming demons through Jesus’ Name

Kyle’s testimony of his salvation and overcoming fear from demons at night through the power of Jesus’ Name.

Kyle PellerinI was born and raised in a Christian family, as a young child the idea of heaven and the life after death was a great fantasy I wished would be fulfilled. Although my parents were never forceful of attending Church nor reading the Bible, I fully was convinced that Jesus and God was real. Although later in life, this idea was only reassured as the only possibility. In my life I’ve experience a lot of spiritual warfare but it’s only brought myself closer to Jesus.

Ever since I’ve been young, I’ve been able to sense if something is with me or close to me in the current room. It’s difficult to describe, although this feeling is associated with fear and that someone is watching you. When I was young, this feeling scared me. I would only get it when I was alone and when I didn’t feel safe. Now, I’ve come to realise this feeling was me sensing the presence of a demon.

A matter of life and death

Ryan Eamer’s testimony

I was brought up as a Christian since I was seven.  I met the Lord Jesus when some evangelists had a tent in a caravan park and I went and did some arts and crafts, as well as learning about God and His Son.  So essentially I don’t remember a time that I wasn’t a believer.  My mum was converted by my best friend’s mother when I was in pre-primary.

We originally went to Warwick Church of Christ where I went to Sunday School and learnt more about God’s love for me.  When I was 10, my mum re-married and we moved church to Rhema, which is now known as Riverview.  I also attended the school that was associated with that church for grades five, six and seven.  Here (and at church) I started to get a better grasp on the scriptures, and learnt under some very godly men.

He heals the broken hearted

I shared my salvation testimony via YouTube and several atheists mocked the fact that when I came to a dark place, due to trials and problems in life, the Lord reached down and chose me, and pulled me up out of the pit of despair.  God uses such trials in life to bring us unto Him. Specifically I remember all this confusion was in my head, like numbers swirling around, and the instant I called out “God, if you exist, help me!” all that stopped and I felt a still quiet presence in my soul.

Psalms 147:3  He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.

The word translated “wounds” in Hebrew עַצֶּבֶת `atstsebeth can also be translated “pain” or “sorrow”. God is the only power in heaven and earth who can do this, eternally.

Jesus, Lover of My Soul–My Testimony

Katharine_Hartnett

by Katharine Hartnett

Jesus, the True, Pure, Merciful, Gracious, Holy, Lover of my Soul.

I have had a lot of different loves in this life including people, relationships, things, clothes, music, movies, hobbies, you name it. But deep down I always was searching for something more, for that true, pure, gracious love that only Jesus can give. No one and nothing else seemed to satisfy me, not ever! But I still am passionate about what God has blessed me with! God is so amazing in how he works things and brings us closer to him, and when God disciplines us through sanctification that’s real love, for he shows that he cares for us.

Before I really came to know the Lord I was seeking a fulfilling life through people and friends, wanting to fit in with the crowd and look cool, going out to parties, clubbing and drinking etc. Although I knew there was a God and kinda knew what I was doing wasn’t really good I still thought I could just let it slide and not worry about it yet (what people call procrastinating) and I wanted to do this because everyone else was, I thought it was the way to enjoy life since everyone is doing it! I also used to be an obsessive shopper and would waste my money buying lots of dresses from the clothing store Ally every weekend, but once I would get them, they felt like nothing. I still wasn’t satisfied and had to go buy more.

Creation salvation testimony

In the Image of God…Male and female He made them

male-female-toiletDavid was born a male but for about a decade before his conversion to faith in Jesus Christ he lived as a female. He had the whole conversion as he describes HERE in his own testimony, and can be found on his own website.

In the beginning, at the Creation of the world, God made them male and female.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27

It was Adam and Eve. Eve was created by God from Adam’s rib, taken from his side. God created them equal, yet different, with different roles. Unfortunately, nowadays with a departure from the clear biblical teachings, gender identity has become a big issue for many in our society. Read Male and female He made them… where David’s doctor published David personal testimony of his trans-gender story and his restoration back to the man God had intended him to be.

David’s testimony is a clear indication of the power of God to regenerate and heal his creation.
