until the day of Jesus Christ." (KJV)

Pastor Mike's Testimony
I guess if I was to go on record I would have to
say that when I was in 6th grade while working in
the bee shed with my mom ( my parents were bee
keepers), she was the first one to share the gospel
of the Lord Jesus Christ with me. It made me
hungry for the things of the book called the Bible
so I set out to find "the way." I looked in a
variety of places, unfortunately they were all the
This hunger went on through high school. I would
read the Bible, memorize scripture but I never
really met the Lord. I knew of Him and could put
up a good argument with those who claimed they
knew Him but whose lives were contrary to the
Word of God. This hunger lasted for a long time.
I went into the military at a young age and found
all the pleasures of the flesh that I'd only
dreamed of. I learned to operate all types
of weaponry and explosives, as well as the art of
killing human beings. There was parties galore and
I soon found myself into hardcore pornography. I
soon forgot about my search for the true Jesus. I
walked that path for many, many years.
After the military, I became a cop in Long Beach
CA. It was there that a chaplain confronted me
about my living with a woman without being
married. So, out of a religious conviction, I got
married thinking this would make God
happy.....WRONG! My wife was a strong, silent
Christian. She tried to tell me how to really meet
Jesus but I was so arrogant and proud that I
refused to listen. We were starting to grow apart
but I felt guilty because of the two children that
we had in the 11 years that we were together.
Yet, I continued having affairs and didn't care if
she knew or not. I finally left and moved to
In northern California the
downward spiral continued. I fell in love with a
woman 12 years my junior and we had our hard
times too. It was at this time that I got into
drugs and all the wrong things I could. At this
time, I had been a truck driver for 7 years. I was
between jobs and we were fighting bad. She
wanted to get married and I wasn't wanting to get
a divorce from my first wife. As soon as I got
back to work, she waited until I was putting the
stuff in the truck and then had the locks changed
and told me to never come back and forget about
our two children. I was really down and tired of
life as I knew it. After I got back from my first
run I went to what had been home with a fist full
of money. She took the money and told me she
had a new boyfriend and never wanted to see me
again. I was devastated. I got my next dispatch
and headed for Oregon. I got there 11 hours
early. I had a divine appointment to keep.
I was hurting and called out to God, "I am tired
of this hurt. No matter what I do, it is always
the wrong thing." I took my 9mm out of my
overnight bag and started to cry. I jacked a shell
into the chamber, placed it in my mouth and pulled
the trigger. "Click" was all I heard but immediately
I got those mega goosebumps and I heard
"WHERE WOULD YOU BE IF I LET THAT BULLET
I pulled the gun out of my mouth and said "What
the...!" Again I heard the same voice
WOULD YOU BE IF I LET THAT BULLET GO?"
At this point I got this sickening feeling that went
all the way down to my stomach. I said "Lord?"
Again, in a more demanding voice,
WOULD YOU BE IF I LET THAT BULLET GO?"
I told Him that by what I used to believe in I'd
be in hell. He then said, "BUT I HAVE A WORK
FOR YOU TO DO IF YOU WILL LET ME WORK
THROUGH YOU, A MIGHTY WORK I WILL DO
IF YOU WILL ALLOW ME FULL ACCESS OF YOUR
LIFE. I'LL TAKE ALL YOUR PAIN AND MAKE IT
JOY, ALL YOUR CONFUSION AND GIVE YOU
I said "ok, Lord."
My life has not been the same since. I've had
problems since because I have listened to the
wrong voice but He has taken me through. I am
now married to a God-fearing wife. The Lord has
empowered me to speak to people on a one to one
basis and He has anointed me with the Spirit and
Thank You Lord for never giving up on me.
