George Müller

In the video below, actor and preacher, Doug Whitley*, portrays George Müller (1805 -1898).

Before he received Jesus Christ who transformed his life, George Müller was a drunkard, a cheat and a most sinful man. God took him from the beer halls to the honored halls of men of great faith. Without a penny, he was able to build one of the largest and most successful childrens orphanages in Bristol, England.

During his life, he and his wife Susannah cared for over 10,024 orphans simply dependent upon God with childlike faith. – Luis Josephus

Kris Kristofferson Salvation Testimony

Country music supergroup, The Highwaymen, featuring Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, and Johnny Cash.

The salvation testimony of Kris Kristofferson – how he came to receive Jesus Christ, and the story behind the writing of the popular son, “Why me Lord?” So great to hear Kris and Willie Nelson playing together again – the last members still alive from the group, The Highwaymen. The other two members, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, have passed away. You can tell Kris wrote this song straight from his heart.

“Foreigner” Lead Singer Lou Gramm’s Testimony

In this video interview, Lou Gramm describes his Christian conversion. After years of international success as the lead singer for the popular rock group, “Foreigner,” he described his wild life of sex, drugs, and rock and roll spinning out of control. He reconnected with God in prayer. His hit song, “I want to know what love is” took on special meaning. The song reminded him that God loved him and sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for his redemption (John 3:16). Afterwards, he checked himself into a drug rehabilitation program where he prayed with a pastor to receive Jesus Christ. “I knew right away that this is what I wanted for a long time,” Gramm declared. He eventually left Foreigner and started his own band, “The Gramm Brothers.” He has been a Christian for 20 years now.

Actor Jim Caviezel Testimony

Leave a comment

Watch this amazing testimony and words of Jim Caviezel, the actor who played Jesus in The Passion of the Christ film, which is the highest-grossing R-rated film in history just like the Holy Bible is the world’s best-selling book. Jim Caviezel is being interviewed by Dave Cooper.

The Passion InterviewThis interview is highly inspiring. He talks about how God’s Providence allowed him to suffer several very painful injuries and illnesses when filming which allowed him to participate in and portray Christ’s Passion in a deep and real way. He tells about the shocking fact that he was struck by lightning at one point in the production. He gives advice to all believers about the seriousness of living the Faith, not trying to “fit in” with our neo-pagan society, and the necessity, joy, and honor of suffering for Jesus Crucified for the salvation of souls. His testimony is amazing and real.

Ruth’s Vision of Jesus

Ruth Gottlieb

Ruth Gottlieb

Ruth Gottlieb is a Holocaust survivor who lost her parents in the Nazi Death Camps. In 1945, the Nazis evacuated Auschwitz and Ruth and 7,000 others were left behind. The Soviet army liberated them from the camp and Ruth eventually migrated to Israel. Her complete story was told to Jews For Jesus Ministry at: http://www.jewsforjesus.org/publications/issues/v20-n04/auschwitz-mengele-and-the-god-who-was-with-me

Although she was raised in the Jewish religion, she relates how one day she received Jesus as her Savior, Lord and Messiah:

Jesus walks on water“In the 1980’s at one point I lived in a hotel in Tiberius, Israel.  I could see the Sea of Galilee from my room. One day, I had a vision in which I saw Yeshua (Jesus) walking on the lake. It wasn’t a dream; I just saw him! So I told my daughter and I got more and more interested in Jesus and read many books about him.

When we moved back to France, we were still seeking and reading. Then one day, I was walking on the beach in Nice, and I met a Christian woman named Rosemund. We spoke about Jesus for quite a while. When we began to read the Bible together, it suddenly became very clear to me that Jesus was our Jewish Messiah. I talked with my daughter, and over time she too came to believe in him.

Jesus was Jewish. He taught from the Hebrew Scriptures. In his day the New Testament didn’t exist. He died for our sins voluntarily – no one murdered him, neither Romans nor Jews. Some people claim the New Testament is anti-Semitic. What an idea! It’s not in the least bit anti-Semitic. All you have to do is to read it and you will find a book that is thoroughly Jewish.

I’ve always wondered why God took me out of the concentration camp and restored my health. There are millions that died. I was not saved thanks to my own wisdom. I recognize that God saved me, but why me?. I don’t know the answer.

Since I have come to know Yeshua, I have a whole different way of thinking. I don’t need to go to be entertained or a lot of material things to be happy. I am just more content. Most of all, I have peace in my heart knowing that my sins are forgiven and that one day I will be with my Messiah in heaven.”

Regardless of your culture or religious background, believe that there is one true God, and Jesus Christ (Messiah) His only begotten Son. He died on the cross to redeem all men from their sins. He rose from the dead after three days and three nights and now sits in heaven at the right hand of God the Father interceding for His people, and awaiting the day of His return to the earth. Won’t you receive Him today as your Savior, Messiah and Lord of your life?

Pray this prayer and mean it with all your heart:

Dear heavenly Father, I thank you that You sent Jesus Christ to die on the cross for my sins. I repent of my sinful life; please forgive me. I invite Jesus to be my Savior and Lord of my life today. Help me to be the man (or woman) of God You want me to be. Amen.

If you just prayed this prayer, you have now been forgiven of all your sins. Start attending a Bible-believing church regularly where you can continue to grow in your Christian faith. If you need a Bible or other Christian literature, write us and we’ll send it to you absolutely free.

SCRIPTURE READING:

Matthew 14:22-33

Jesus Walks on the Water

Immediately Jesus made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowd. After he had dismissed them, he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. Later that night, he was there alone, and the boat was already a considerable distance from land, buffeted by the waves because the wind was against it.

Shortly before dawn Jesus went out to them, walking on the lake. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the lake, they were terrified. “It’s a ghost,” they said, and cried out in fear.

But Jesus immediately said to them: “Take courage! It is I. Don’t be afraid.”

“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.”

“Come,” he said.

Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”

Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?”

And when they climbed into the boat, the wind died down. Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”

Testimony of Rose Price – Nazi Concentration Camp Survivor

EDITOR’S NOTE: Rose Price went to be with the Lord in the spring of 2015. She was 87 years old. Rest in Peace, dear one.  – LJM

Rose Price spent five years in a Nazi concentration camp. She narrowly escaped death time after time at the hand of her German tormentors. Her entire family except for her sister and aunt, never came out of the death camps. She recalls, “I was hit on the head with a cross by a Roman Catholic priest simply because I was a Jew. He called me a ‘Christ killer”. For many years Rose learned to hate the “Jesus” of her persecutors and vowed never to have anything to do with Christianity. But when she met “the real Jesus” of the Bible – the one who truly loved her and died for her redemption, she willingly embraced Him as her Messiah.

Rose Price

Rose Price was born of Orthodox Jewish parents in Poland. As a small child she tasted deeply of the persecution that the Jewish people have endured down through the ages. Rose, along with the millions of Jews living in Europe personally entered into a dark time in human history known as the “Holocaust.” A time when a man named Hitler who, inspired by Satan, set his face to destroy the entire Jewish race.

During the horror of World War II, Rose spent five years in concentration camps, narrowly escaping death time after time from the hand of her tormentors. Her entire family except for her sister and aunt, never came out of the death camps. But out of the smoldering ruins of Europe, God brought forth smoldering remnants of human life, and one of these firebrands was Rose.

After immigrating to the United States, Rose met and married Charlie Price and settled in Philadelphia to raise a family of four children — two daughters and two sons. Rose was president of her neighborhood synagogue in spite of the fact that she did not believe in God. The horrors of the war had made her angry at God and she turned her unforgiving heart from Him completely. Yet she did want her children to know of their Jewish heritage and because of this became very involved in temple service.

One at a time, Rose’s daughter and husband met the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus), causing great anguish and distress to Rose. The story of how she, too, encountered her Messiah and surrendered her life to Him, lets one know that God is compassionate and merciful; His love is, indeed, for the lost sheep of the House of Israel. Don’t miss this vibrant testimony of how the Shepherd of Israel makes His claim on the life of one of those lost sheep, Rose Price — and how He lovingly brings her into fellowship with Him.

Rose has spoken at Churches, Synagogues, and both public and private schools in more than 30 of the United States of America. She was a featured speaker at “Berlin for Jesus” and in Nuremberg at the Anniversary of Hitler’s proclamation. She has been an honored guest in Canada, Poland, Jamaica, Honduras, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Puerto Rico.

Former Atheist Comes to Faith in Jesus

Lee Strobel, a former skeptic of Christianity and professing atheist relates how he changed his mind after diligently examining the historical evidence. As a legal editor for the prestigious newspaper, The Chicago Tribune, he ventured on a two-year quest to disprove the claims of Jesus utilizing his honed critical and investigative skills.

Instead of disproving Jesus, he came to the conclusion that Jesus the Messiah was indeed everything He claimed to be, and received Him as Savior and Lord. He says that his decision was due to careful analysis – not blind faith.

The Spirit of God also delivered him of alcoholism, anger and rage, and healed his marriage. His testimony is truly inspiring!

Life Without Arms or Legs or Limitations

The inspirational testimony of Nick Vujicic

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11

Can God can use a a man born without arms or legs? Yes He can! Nick Vujicic shows the world how to live a life without physical limitations.

“My name is Nick Vujicic and I’m 31 years old. I was born without arms or legs and given no medical reason for this condition. Faced with countless challenges and obstacles, God has given me the strength to surmount what others might call impossible.

My book, “Life Without Limbs” is all about sharing this same hope and genuine love that I have personally experienced with people all over the globe. It’s been said that doors open to a man without arms and legs much more easily than to anyone else, we thank God for providing that privilege. I’ve been invited into very unexpected places to share about my faith in Jesus Christ and literally millions have responded.

Traveling extensively to over 54 countries and still counting, I have been extremely humbled by the continuous opportunities that the Lord has given me to share my testimony. My greatest joy in this life is to introduce Jesus to those I meet and tell them of His great desire to get to know them personally by allowing Him to become their Lord and Savior. That’s what Life Without Limbs is all about.

In Psalm 139:13-14, the Bible says, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”

Because of the ministry of Life Without Limbs, God has used me in countless schools, churches, prisons, orphanages, hospitals, stadiums and in face-to-face encounters with individuals, telling them how very precious they are to God. It is our greatest pleasure to assure people that God does have a plan for each and every life that is meaningful and purposeful, for God took my life, one that others might disregard as not having any significance and He has filled me with His purpose and showed me His plans to use me to move hearts and lives toward Him.”

Jewish Man Converts To Jesus

Jewish man converts to Jesus

There are many Jewish people today coming to faith in Christ. Contrary to Rabbinical teachings, they are believing that Jesus (Yeshua) was indeed the promised Messiah and the Savior of all mankind. Like Glenn Blank says in his conversion testimony, “You don’t have to give up your Jewish identity to believe in Jesus.” He came to faith in Jesus Christ the Messiah while personally studying the New and Old Testament Bible, and the Messianic prophecies fulfilled by Jesus.

Entering Into God’s Rest

Luis JosephusThe Testimony of Evangelist Luis Josephus

Then Jesus said, ‘Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” – Matthew 11:28-29

What does it mean to “enter into God’s rest”? It means to lay all your burdens of sin and guilt upon Jesus. The day you accept Him as Savior and Lord, He takes away that heavy weight you carried on your shoulders most of your life. He gives you peace and rest for your souls as you allow Him to teach you and guide you in the way of happiness and fruitfulness God has purposed for you.

The writer of the Book of Hebrews also states, “For he that is entered into his (God’s) rest, has also ceased from his own works, as God did from his” (Hebrews 4:10). Just as God rested on the seventh day – after laboring for six days when He created the heavens and the earth (Genesis 2:3), He also wants us to cease from our own works and stop striving to earn our salvation, or be good enough to earn God’s favor. Jesus already paid the price for our salvation when He took our place on the cross. The penalty of sin was paid for, and we are now free to rest in Him. We are saved by grace through faith (Eph. 2:8,9) and there is nothing left for us to do except trust and obey God’s plan and perfect will for our lives.

This Salvation-Rest was a free gift from God through His Son Jesus Christ. We didn’t earn it for being good, nor can we lose it for messing up and missing the mark. We just need to hold on to the unchanging, loving hand of Jesus by faith, and He will accomplish the work He needs to do in us. His Spirit now indwells our earthly bodies and He has taken a firm hold of our mind and our will, so that we may do what is well-pleasing in God’s sight. When we sin again, He convicts us to confess and get back on the right track. The blood of Jesus shed on the cross forgives us once again and cleanses us of all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).

God has blessed us with an earthly rest – as well as an eternal rest.

The day we received Jesus’ forgiveness and salvation, we entered into His earthly rest.  We no longer have to live in condemnation, anxiety, insecurity or fear of God’s judgment. We are now His beloved children that He blesses and cares for. In the future, as we die in the Lord, we enter into His perfect rest in heaven where we will enjoy unending peace, joy, delight, love and fellowship with God and other sanctified ones who were also redeemed.

My Conversion Testimony – How I found my rest in God.

Because of an abusive father and dysfunctional family life, I lived most of my early life enslaved to my fleshly passions, living in fear, insecurity and self-condemnation. For many years I didn’t know what real love and acceptance was until I met the “real Jesus” – not the angry and intolerant Jesus falsely portrayed by some religions. I felt unworthy, insecure and guilty all the time fearing something bad was going to happen to me. I also feared that God was ready to strike me down at any minute for all my rebelliousness and wrongdoing. I didn’t know the true loving, merciful and patient God of the Bible (John 3:16)

Although I was generally taught right and wrong by my parents, they themselves were not good role models of what they preached. My father was an angry atheist who hated any mention of God. He once set out to write a book to discredit the Bible but never finished it. He believed in UFO’s and that we were the offspring of aliens from another universe. Fortunately, just before my father died of cancer, he repented and prayed the Sinners Prayer. My mother, on the other hand was very spiritual but a troubled and insecure woman. My father was very abusive and controlling towards her; she rebelled and resented his abuse and they fought like cats and dogs most of the time. There was no peace or stability in our home. I was very rebellious myself, had an explosive temper, and was always getting into trouble. I didn’t do well in school. I was a loner and secretive and never had many friends. I was very critical of others (a trait I inherited from dad) and difficult to get along with.

I was raised in the Roman Catholic religion.

I would repent and confess my sins to the priest on Saturday so I could take Holy Communion on Sunday at church. But as soon as Monday would come along, I was back to my evil ways.  It became a vicious cycle of sinning and confessing, sinning and confessing. I stuck it out as long as I did out of obligation to my mother who had dedicated me to God while I was still in her womb during pregnancy. Finally in my teenage years I had had enough of the futility of Roman Catholicism; it wasn’t doing me any good, just making me feel guiltier. “There must be something better than this,” I reasoned, “I’ll find spirituality some other place.” So I started to look into other religions. I discovered that they all claimed to be able to show me the way to God without feeling guilty about my sins. I could keep on living a sinful lifestyle and still have spirituality. I tried Spiritism, Metaphysics, New Age Philosophies, and finally Hinduism.

Luis Josephus_before salvationAt the time, I was living a hippie life on Miami Beach practicing free sex, drugs, and all manner of immorality.

I was approached by several people who belonged to a Guru worshipping cult. They talked to me about spirituality and joining their group. They promised me that I would be able to find God and experience a “natural high” by learning to meditate. I noticed some of the women were pretty nice looking in this cult so I decided to attend their nightly meetings hoping to be able to get hooked up with them. They called these meetings  “Satsangs” (Sanskrit for “gathering for truth”). These Satsang meetings were held at a different members house each night on South Beach. Everyone would come in quietly, prostrate themselves before a large photo of the guru, and then sit down on the floor cross-legged anywhere there was room. One by one, each person would voluntarily take turns going up to the front and to testify of how much they loved the Hindu guru and what “incredible bliss” and miracles he had blessed them with when they prayed to him. I have to admit, there was a very powerful spiritual presence in those meetings. You would get so supernaturally high you felt you were floating on air when you finally left there. I realize now this strong spiritual presence was demonic and not from God. Remember that Satan has supernatural power too. He can appear as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14) and counterfeit the power and anointing of God in order to deceive people (Revelation 13:14).

Well, I certainly fell for Satan’s deception – hook, line and sinker.

I joined the group of “Premies” (followers) of this guru-worshipping cult. I became a vegetarian and was initiated into a their secret rite of receiving “Knowledge” – a special meditation technique for experiencing divine “light”, “music” and “nectar.” Each day I would spend a couple of hours in the cross-legged lotus position experiencing (supposedly) divine bliss. I stayed in this cult for a number of years until God started to send Christians into my life to witness to me. Earlier, my mother had been saved in a Spanish Baptist church. My father’s cousin, Mariita, had been witnessing to mom and inviting her to come to her Baptist church. Mom did, and heard the true gospel for the first time. One day, she responded to the preacher’s altar call and accepted Jesus Christ.  She came out of the Roman Catholic religion, got rid of all the statues and idol altars in our house, and received water baptism as a true Christian. She also began to tell me about the real Jesus of the Bible and his plan of redemption for my life.

At first, I thought my mother and other Christians were a little “wierd.”

I would politely say, “Yes, Yes” to their attempts to reach me with the gospel. But inwardly I would think they were just ignorant and simple-minded people. Little did I know that God was using them to plant seeds of faith in me; I was the ignorant one.

To make a long story short, it took years for these seeds to bear fruit in my life. My mother and others were also praying for my salvation during this time. But finally at the age of 29, I had a major crisis occur in my life. I was living in New York City with a successful advertising career. I was making lots of money, snorting expensive cocaine, hobnobbing with the rich and famous, and enjoying many decadent worldly pleasures. But I was still extremely unhappy.

end-of-your-ropeWhen I experienced this crisis, I reached the end of my rope.

I hit rock bottom and cried out for help in my desperation. I prayed to the guru I had worshipped for many years and he didn’t answer me. I prayed to other spirits and “ascended masters” and they ignored me too. Finally I remembered Jesus; I cried out to Him and He responded. I prayed a simple prayer in my own home: “Jesus, if you’re really real, help me right now. I promise that if you help me get me out of this mess, I will follow only You. Please forgive me.” As soon as I prayed that prayer, I felt a tremendous peace come over me. I also felt that a heavy weight of sin had been lifted off my shoulders. I realized God had heard me pray and mercifully responded. Jesus was alive! He was the real deal. I renounced all other (false) gods and burned all my occult books and tapes.

PraiseOut of gratitude I praised Jesus and thanked Him.

I was immediately led of God to move out of New York and move back to Miami. I drove for three days to get back to Florida. I picked up a hitchhiker along the way and started to tell him about Jesus. I was so excited about Jesus that I began to tell everyone I met.

I arrived early on a Sunday morning and decided to surprise my mother at church. By this time she had been attending a Spanish Pentecostal church in Southwest Miami called, “Iglesia de la Biblia Abierta” (Church of the Open Bible) with Jose Vera as Pastor. As soon as she saw me, she burst out in tears. “Mom, I became a Christian!”, I said. “Praise the Lord, glory to God!” she responded. My aunt Carmita who had previously been into prostitution in Cuba, Spiritism and Santeria*, had also been saved and had become a powerful evangelist. She came to me after the service was over and said, “My God, you look like a different person! Your face has changed; you look peaceful and happy!”

I began to attend my mother’s church and was water baptized six month later.

At the baptism, I spoke in public for the first time and gave my testimony in front of the whole church. As I started to grow as a newly born-again Christian, I developed a hunger for studying the Bible, praying, and witnessing to others about Jesus. My life was completely transformed for the better. And since my conversion at the age of 29, I have followed and served the Lord now for many years. My greatest joy is teaching and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ our Messiah. The Lord called me early after conversion into the ministry. Shortly thereafter, I was officially ordained as a Pastor and Evangelist. I have preached and taught at many churches, prisons, nursing homes, homeless shelters and evangelistic events throughout the years. I also write and publish books through my own ministry at: http://www.realjesuslife.com/

I pray that my testimony has been an inspiration to you, and that God will anoint this message so that other lost souls will be brought into His kingdom of truth and light. All glory, honor and praise be unto Jesus, our redeemer, Lord and king!

– Evangelist Luis Josephus
