Testimony - lost sinner to saved sinner
This is my testimony of how the Lord saved me, a sinner, and how he brought me into the body of Christ. I apologize if it is quite long but I want to share how the Lord has changed me through his word and his gospel, and how God humbled me to call upon him. The Lord has put it in my heart to share my testimony and I apologize to God and to all of you for taking so long to write it.
So here it goes:
My name is Kyle, I am a saved sinner and king james bible believer who was saved in 2017 on a night between late October/ early November. Though I heard the gospel months before for the first time on brother Bryan's channel and watched his videos,even prayed the prayer at the end of the message, this night is so vivid, and in my heart I truly believed his death on the cross for my sins. I called unto God, declaring myself a sinner and that there is nothing I could to save myself but that Christ dying on the cross, his burial and resurrection that only beleiving on him could save me.
Before this night I was having trouble understanding his word, especially the epistles and did not understand how to rightly divide. I was into meditation, yoga, paganism and even followed catholicsm for a while, sadly even believing zionist conspiracies. All these things I kept turning back to. Praise the Lord he brought me out of the them. I was never raised in a religious home, but went to church regularly until I was about 11. I got "baptized" there and knew the 10 commandments, the Lord's prayer, that Jesus was virgin born but never understood why he died on the cross. Nor, why he rose on the third day. The Lord revealed the truth of these things through his word when I got saved and its frustrating to hear professing christians say there is no changed life after salvation because when you read the King James Bible and the Lord reveals his word to you, you change and see that his word and the Jesus of the bible are alot different than what the world and church buildings say about him.
I was lost, and in sin. A porn addict since I was 14. At 21, I became a drunkard, smoked pot regularly and believed alot like a new age christian. I grew up watching and idolizing sports and I became an athlete, went to school for business and tried to have a luxurious and successful life. I believed in myself and tried to make myself perfect, thinking that if I achieve something I will be at peace. I thought I was walking on the right path, but I was actually confused and wicked. When I couldn't measure up to my own expectations, I realized I needed help. Somehow, the Lord led me to brother Bryan's video on mind control and MK ultra. Watching that video I knew something was wrong with me. Anyways, I believe it was that video or another video of Bryan's but he preached the remedy is a relationship with God and a peaceful life was through his word, the King James Bible and that the standard for a christian is God's word. I knew instantly that Bryan and his wife were different than any Christian I had ever met and they were the first one's I ever heard speak out against church buildings. I thank the Lord for using Bryan and his ministry to preach the gospel and the word of God, because now I am saved not by watching youtube videos, but that I am saved because Jesus Christ the Son of God, died on the cross for my sins and shed his blood as payment for my sins. I thank God everyday for saving me, even though that can never be enough and sometimes I wonder how it could be that easy to get to heaven, but I believe that is God's mercy and grace towards us sinners.
Titus 3:5 - Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
Anyways brothers and sisters, yes I am still a sinner and yes, struggle each day with the flesh and the sins of my old man, but the Lord has been patient with me and as a growing babe in Christ I am grateful for all edifying and accountability I have found in this forum.
God bless yo all.
