Thanks to the true Living God and His wonderful Son Lord Jesus Christ, I’m Alive. They saved my Life, Job, Marriage and Soul. They made me a better person, better husband and better father. They made me better than I was by my accident. I’m stronger and a better Christian. Satan and his angels though they had my Soul. But, the true Living God and His Son was right at my side. It’s true, Lord Jesus Christ will never leave you or forsake you. It wasn’t my battle, it was the true Living God and his Son’s battle. I can’t do or did anything by myself, it was all the true Living God H his Son. I give the true Living God and His Son all the Praise, Honor, Glory, Thanks and Credit. Most Muslims believe and teach that Allah has no Son. But, the true Living God I know has a Son and His name is Lord Jesus Christ. The name that’s above all names. The name Jesus is the sweetest name I know. The name Jesus will make Satan and his angels flee. There is Power in the name Jesus. Most Muslims believe and teach not to Worship Lord Jesus Christ, because most Muslims don’t believe Lord Jesus is the Son of the true Living God. Why else would I still be alive. Before my accident, I was a Muslim. But, now I’m a Christian and very proud of it. As a Christian I learned, that I had help from a higher Power. That higher Power was no doubt the true Living God and His Son. Most Muslims believe and teach that the Virgin birth of Lord Jesus is false. Most Muslims believe and teach Lord Jesus Christ was just a great prophet and messenger. Lord Jesus Christ is far much more. Lord Jesus Christ is Almighty God all by himself. The true Living God, His Son and Holy Spirit are one. They, along with the Holy Spirit, make up the Holy Trinity. Lord Jesus is the Bread of Life. The Bread of Life is the only person qualified and sent from Glory to redeem, and to give humankind salvation. One reason Lord Jesus sacrificed his Life was so we could have a right to the tree of Life. Most Muslims believe and teach to put almost all their faith in Muhammad. The truth about Muhammad, Muhammad was just a prophet and messenger. Muhammad isn’t the person that gave his Life by sacrifice and isn’t the giver of salvation. Muhammad didn’t heal the sick, raise the dead, made the lame walk, walked on the water, turned water into wine, casted out demons, healed a woman just by the touch of His garment, made the seas be calm or gave sight to the blind. Muhammad isn’t our Comforter, Sustainer, Provider, Protector, Lord, Savior, Redeemer or Master. Muhammad isn’t the person who is the King of Glory, the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, the Prince of Peace, the Lily of the Valley, the Rose of Sharon, the bright morning Star, the Alpha and Omega, the Holy one, the Holy Spirit, the Almighty God, the Messiah, Son of Man and Son of righteousness. Muhammad wasn’t the person who was betrayed and arrested. Muhammad wasn’t the one who went on trial before Pilot and sentenced to be Crucified. Muhammad didn’t get spit on, whipped all night long, nailed to the cross & after he was Crucified pierced in the side with a spear to see if he was still alive. Muhammad wasn’t the one placed in a borrowed tomb stayed in the grave all night Friday and Saturday. Muhammad wasn’t the person that early Sunday the true Living God raise from the grave on the third day and gave all Power in Heaven and Earth in his hands. Not little bit, not some, but all Power in his hands. Muhammad is just like the other prophets and messengers, dead in their grave ! There is nothing to compare between Muhammad and Lord Jesus Christ. Muhammad can do absolutely nothing for you ! This Testimony will make you appreciate the true Living God and His Son Lord Jesus Christ. Only the true Living God and His Son can take a test, and turn it into a Living Testimony. Before they can be a Testimony, there must be a test. My family and I will always Worship the true Living God and His Son Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you, God Bless you and I Love you. Love, that’s what it’s all about. If I had 10,000 tongues, it still wouldn’t be enough to tell the true Living God and His wonderful Son Lord Jesus Christ, thank you very much. Praise the true Living God and His wonderful Son Lord Jesus Christ.
