I am the person that wrote the original post about my terrifying experience hearing voices. Its a true story. I wrote the post about 3 years ago and at that time I was desperate, afraid, confused and trapped in a web of lives.
At the time I didn't realize it, but what I was experiencing was Spiritual Warfare. A term I had never heard of before. Every now and again I would get notifications from this site when people would comment on my story, sharing the own similar experience and others giving suggestions.
My heart goes out to people that were in my situation. My life is a thousand times better no and I realize I must comment on this page to share the true answer to getting freedom and living a life fill of hope, peace and true joy which can only come from the Lord, Jesus Christ. Not candles, not incense, not by calling on the Arch Angel Micheal but by calling on the Lord Jesus Christ.
The things I experience were tragic and I had been calling on God to save me from the hell I was living. I grew up in a Christian home but never knew God for myself, or understood what Jesus Christ did for me on the cross.
I lived my life however I wanted to live which was a life of sin. I believe that the Lord allowed me to ho through what I went through so that I would seek him. So that I could search for the truth. I prayed for help for a year with no change, but it was until I hated my life so bad that I was willing to give it all up just so I could have God. Truly follow Jesus. Not just be a "christian" but be a follower of Jesus.
The Lord eventually brought people in my life that really loved him. People that weren't just religious, but people that knew and heard the TRUE voice of God. I was able to open up to them and tell them what I had been experiencing. They believed me...didn't judge me...they prayed for me...and invited me to church and their Life Group studies.
For a couple of months I still tried to hold on to my old ways, but one day I went down to the front of the church. I told God that I didn't know how to follow him but I was willing to do WHATEVER it takes to live for me.
That day my eyes were open and the Holy Spirit...the true voice of God came to live in me. I learned and believe the Good New of Jesus Christ. The God became man in Jesus Christ. That Jesus lived the life we should have lived that he died the death that you deserved to die in my place. That 3 days later he rose from the grave and proved to everyone that he is the Son of God.
I accepted the free gift that God offers through Jesus, Eph 2:8, the gift of Salvation to EVERYONE who repents and believes in the Gospel. Jesus died so that I could have life.
I'm telling everyone reading this that Jesus gives hope. Jesus gives life. Jesus is real. Jesus loves and cares for YOU. Jesus knows everything you are going through and he just waiting on you to believe and call on his name.
I still hear the enemy's voice, BUT i hear and now am able to recognize the voice of God through the Holy Spirit. He has given my power to fight the lies with truth, 2Corinthians 10:4-5.
My life isn't perfect, but with Jesus he has changed so much. He has given me freedom. I am no longer oppressed. Luke 10:19. Since then I have completely surrendered my life.
I'm very active in my church and on our ministry team. I love to pray for other people, even my parents can't figure out how I've changed so drastically.
God through The Holy Spirit has blessed me with spiritual gift that I use to advance the kingdom of God. Helping others that have been deceived by false teachings.
I will end on this note. Isaiah 59:1-2 was the first out of many verses the Lord gave me to help me understand why he waited so long to save me after I called on his name.
Please read it. He showed me that I refused to repent and to follow him. I pray you hear my message. I'm not perfect by any means, but my life changed when I simply made a decision to follow Jesus Christ and to make him Lord and Savior.
