In the past, I was simply spiritually lost, unaware, and didn’t really understand much about spiritual things.
When I was 28 years old in 1974, (I’m now 69, Selma my wife is 68), I had an experience with, and a personal relationship with Jesus, in gaining the basics of acceptance of His Redemption, and Atonement for the sins of the world, and within my personal life.
I asked, believed, and committed to repentance, a life turned to God.
A New turned life to follow only the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament Writings of Jesus, the Apostles, and Evangelists.
That was, and is, as real today as it was then.
And the sharing of Jesus’ Salvation Good News Message, has been my life’s purpose ever since.
To share the truth of Jesus’ love for all humanity.
For ALL to have a real, true, divine experience with God through His Son Jesus. Through the Father’s Grace alone. Justified only through the Redeeming Blood of the Christ Jesus, that was shed on Calvary’s Tree, that Atoned to God the Father, for all of humanities’ Sins, Past, Present, and Future.
The Great Grand Glorious Message of Salvation through Jesus alone is the Gospel Good News.
Through this Gospel Message, and this Gospel only (NO CHURCH TRADITIONS) all men everywhere can be spiritually Born Again, when they understand the true Gospel message of total surrender to Jesus above all else. Above a spouse, children, family, friends, work, church… ALL.
For ALL and everyone can be spiritually born again.
As Jesus said to Nicodemus.
“You must be spiritually born again.”
Thanks, for allowing me to share these few sentences with you, to the other side of the world. God is there in all things. As well as here, and anywhere. Regards Norman and Selma Oetker HmongNews.Org U.S. Saint Charles Missouri July, 2015 ……
Thanks for the reply, sadly you are correct.
It always amazes me that people don’t want to love Jesus.
People want to be a good religious person (any religion), and they pick and choose what spiritual truths they’ll accept.
To be a Christian and to have Him as one’s personal Lord and Savior, one has to 1. decide first to willingly turn their lives to obedience of the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament Truths spoken by Jesus, the Apostles, and Evangelists found only within the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament.
There are No modern or ancient church denomination traditions to obey.
Obedience is to the the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament Truths ONLY!
We all suffer many things in this life, just because we trust in Jesus, we are not immune from the evils of this world.
As a Protestant Christian Missionary, serving five missionary tours in Thailand, living in a dirt floor hut, dressed in Mong Hill tribesmen clothes.
Introducing for the first time, the name of Jesus to this remote Himalayan mountain Mong Hill Tribesman Village named Naipapaek, in NorthWest Thiland. Communist, Bandits, Opium Warlords controlled this area. NO One went into the mountains in this region, we were the first Christian Missionaries there. These people had never seen a white person, a car, etc. there were no roads, electric, running water, no modern day conveniences.
Living also seven years in Reynosa Mexico. In Mexico I was the only White Protestant Christian Missionary allowed for a year to enter and to share Jesus, in the renowned Reynosa Mexico Prison.
Going also into and throughout the U.S. In the U.S. living and working in Asian Gang neighborhoods.
All were at times violent, and extreme. Killing people, and missionaries, cutting off heads and body parts. It is terrible to comprehend. Yet, God’s Divine, Perfect Grace, (Grace is God’s Power, Strength, Love and Favor towards ALL humans good or bad) enables His followers to keep on serving Him. Only God can forgive such terrible acts upon another human being. God’s love helps us all to continue, when all peoples seem dis-interested in the Gospel Good News Message of Salvation. God helps us all to endure such atrocious disastrous agonies. Be safe and have a Good Day or Evening There.
Norman and Selma. 🙂
