How I Got Saved – Salvation From Satan’s Kingdom — Updated June 2023
“I don’t know what JESUS will do to help you out. He gave me a vision in the form of a spiritual dream — a real entrance into the spirit world. He has his own methods and plans for reaching you with salvation”.
How I Got Saved – Judge All Visions (1 Thess. 5:21)
Section update September 17, 2022
“Having a spiritual experience or encounter with Jesus Christ means nothing UNLESS the experience moves you to choose to see what He sees and think what He thinks as a result of the vision.
The Lord can give you a vision for exhorting and encouraging your heart when it needs direction or if you need comforting. In my case the Lord gave a vision as a warning (admonition) to repent of my sins and obey Jesus Christ. If you don’t repent of your sins, you are still recorded in His book (by Jesus, Himself) as “a sinner against Him who loves to have your own way” even though you have had a spiritual vision or encounter with Jesus. If you are in a false religion, the real Jesus has not come in a vision to you without letting you know to repent of that false JESUS and false religious worship. John 3:16-21, Revelation 3:5, Revelation 20:11-15, 1 Thessalonians 5:21
YOU MUST CONFESS
Confession Is Power
CONFESSION TO JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY TO BREAK SATAN’S HOLD OFF OF YOU
18) And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds. 19) Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver. 20) So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.
Since I was so deceived to not repent after the terrifying dream, not realizing what a grip and hold Satan had on my will, Jesus helped me out! I don’t know what He will do to help you out. He gave me a vision in the form of a spiritual dream — a real entrance into the spirit world.
In the dream, there were these little flying creatures about the size of monkeys. They were flying all over my room coming at me — then turning away for the next swoop. It was DEVILS. I knew what they were in the dream. And they were real! They were giving me a little taste of what was going to happen to me in my very near future. Earlier that year, I had already almost drowned in the Current River in Annapolis, Missouri — “begging” God to not let me die like that and my father be hurt finding me. I saw all my evil ways flash before my eyes as I was going under.
I awakened from the dream-vision in a panic about 1:00 or 2:00 am. I called my sister who was Pastor Gloria Ferguson and she, with another Pastor Patrick Easley had been “hounding” me to come back to God. Be saved. “Don’t stay out there … some don’t make it back” they warned me. I just blew it off. Somebody has been hounding you! “I’m ready to be saved! Pray the sinner’s prayer with me”! She did, I did, Jesus did.
YOU CAN’T DO IT … YOU’RE “BOUND”
Failing of the grace of God means you like what you’re doing and the friends who take pleasure in what you are doing or take pleasure in doing it with you. They help Satan keep his grip that he has on you.
HOW TO CONFESS
Sample Prayer (Fill In Your Own Info)
Lord Jesus, please forgive me for not believing in You. Please forgive me for not obeying You. I am a sinner. I’m going to Hell. I confess that I am a [fill in the blank] … but I turn from my evil ways to obedience to you. I believe you are God come in flesh and your power comes on me right now as I confess and you will patiently keep me along the way until you come for me.
Fill in the blanks
LORD JESUS, I confess that I am a (or that I do): _____________________________. I turn from it to obey you with my life. Please forgive me and be my Lord.
Dissimulator – As a CHRISTIAN, I separate myself from holy living Christians. As a non-Christian, I separate myself from persons for no righteous reasons
Liar (do not acknowledge Your truth about myself and others)
Murderer (seeking — in any manner — to destroy others lives or well-being)
Glory-seeker (want power over others, superiority, control and admiration drawn to me)
Whore (Giving my body to others — not committed as a man to any one woman via marriage, not committed as a woman to any one man via marriage. Marriage belongs to God who created it. He decides its design. He made it for only a person biologically born a man to one biologically born a woman.
Injurious (enjoy making people feel hurt)
Blasphemer (talking bad about God, Jesus, or His holy living people & things)
Finally – Anything else you can think of or have heard from others who DO obey the Bible Lord Jesus Christ.
Now, ask Him! Will you please be my Lord? Rule over me … I give you my consent. I turn from my ways of living for your enemy Satan. TAKE HIS POWER OFF MY LIFE!
Thank you, Jesus. You are my Lord, now. I belong to you.
Praise Jesus for you! You are our new brother or sister all over God’s earth.
Your next “first steps” is to ask your Lord who rules over you to send you to (or bring to you) the Pastor that He has, personally, trained to watch out for your soul from Satan (Satan wants you back!) and train your spirit in the powers of the Bible Lord Jesus Christ — the way He wants you trained. He will do it. Just commit right now to walk your own road Jesus has for you and not feel you must join to anything that you’ve always seen or “every other Christian is doing it”. It’s fine if JESUS leads you to do what others are, not fine if He does not want their road for you.
Don’t worry. He will put it in your heart, backed by His Word (The New Testament) and with multiple signs and wonders confirming what He’s doing in your heart.
