Man Said, "My eyes were blinded when I saw you." - Salvation Testimony - Bethel

January.02.14 (testimony shared from Bethel website - Their link is on our connections page)

This happened yesterday afternoon. I don't understand fully why it happened to me, and it certainly had nothing to do with me, but all with Jesus, but I just share what happened and give glory to Master Jesus.

Yesterday before going to Bethel's prayer chapel, I needed to get some gas, so I drove to a certain gas station. I just wanted to get gas and leave again, but as I got out of the car, a man that I never met before walked up to me. He asked me, "Are you a Christian?" I said, "Yes, I am." He replied, "As soon as you got out of the car, I felt a presence of 'good.' There is this sensation of holiness about you. Don't get me wrong, but my eyes were blinded when I saw you!" (His exact words.)

I instantly knew that he was a back slidden Christian and got all kinds of insights into his life, God showing me exact things of what he did and what he will do in the future and the call that God has for him. So I drove my car back and told him that we could talk. He soon began to confess his sins that he committed without me asking him to do that. I explained the Gospel to him, making sure to tell him that it's never too late for a sinner to come to God. I laid my hands on him and prayed in the parking lot.

Then I asked him to pray in his words to Jesus now to come into his heart. What then happened was powerful. He walked a few feet away from me and began to pray a fervent prayer like this: "Jesus, you see that I am full of sin. I come to you right now and ask you to cleanse me and forgive me. I want you to be in my life forever. I renounce every evil spirit that I've invited into my life in Jesus' name. Help me to live for you."

I was standing there with tears in my eyes. I felt the love of Christ for this man, and we just hugged each other for a while. He wanted my phone number and wants to come to church with me.

Glory be to God.
