the Christian testimony of
Brother Forrest Langley
Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, WHO WERE DEAD in trespasses and sins;
2:2 Wherein IN TIME PAST YE WALKED ACCORDING TO THE COURSE OF THIS WORLD, ACCORDING TO THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR, THE SPIRIT THAT NOW WORKETH IN THE CHILDREN OF DISOBEDIENCE:
2:4 BUT GOD, WHO IS RICH IN MERCY, FOR HIS GREAT LOVE WHEREWITH HE LOVED US,
2:5 EVEN WHEN WE WERE DEAD IN SINS, HATH QUICKENED US TOGETHER WITH CHRIST, (by grace ye are saved;)
[sis. tracy's note: The blood of Jesus Christ is POWERFUL and EFFECTUAL. This testimony needs no lengthy introduction. It's powerful and I pray that many sinners will read it. There is a special section for you--keep reading.]
he stole a King James Bible in order to blaspheme.
I was a satanist who was into numerology, I was into tarot cards and spell casting. I was doing rituals looking to have more power with satan. I was in Long Beach Californea and I stole a Holy King James 1611 Bible to use in a satanic ritual. What happened next greatly surprised, stunned and astonished me and I am sure it will shock you. Listen, when I got outside I opened that Holy Bible that I was gonna use in that satanic ritual and I began to read it. As I began to read, I noticed that I was not alone any more but a supernatural presence that I had never known was helping me as I read that Bible. He illuminated that Holy Bible and for the first time in my life I was a lost sinner on my road to hell. The One who Authored that Holy Bible came to me and breathed a breath on that Holy Bible and it lept up and came alive in my soul.
King Jesus broke him down and showed him himself.
The first thing that I saw was that I was in the presence of the only One and true God and He was Holy and I was unholy. He was Majestic and I was a vile wretched sinner lost and on my road to hell. I never knew that I was such an exceeding sinner until I saw through the true light--the light of the Holy Ghost revealing the Holy Word to my heart. Oh the terror of sin, I knew that I was a condemned being on my road to hell and there was nothin' I could do about it because justice should have threw me into the pit of hell capped it over and forgot about me. I was so vile and wretched that I felt like the earth was gonna open and I was going to slide into the pit of hell with my clothes on. O what a wicked sinner that I was. I saw myself as something to be abhorred.
he bowed down to the Saviour.
I came to the place in His Holy Word that said "But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is the word of faith which we preach; that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt beleive in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead thou shalt be saved. So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God."
I saw through the eye of faith Almighty God in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ marching up Golgatha's hill with an old rugged cross scrapeing His shoulder, walking in bloody sandals with a crown of thorns smashed into His skull, beat beyond recognition, suffering and bleeding and dying just for me. I heard with the ear of faith "I am He that liveth and was dead and behold I am alive forevermore..." I humbled myself in the presence of the Creator the Lord Jesus Christ, and I begged Him to forgive me of all my sins and to come into my heart. O the peace that passeth understanding and the joy beyond measure flooded my soul. I got saved, truley saved, Born again.
satanism, sex, drugs, and rock n' roll
couldn't fill the void.
Listen, I had plenty of satanic experiences with tarot cards where I would read the cards and I had a measure of sucess and I could take numerology and predict the future with sucess but this was all of satan and I could never predict it and get it 100% right. I was in Bondage to the devil. The Bible says "And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free." Listen, I had all my life been searching for peace and contentment trying to fill a void spot with satanism, sex, drugs, and rock music. I had a void in my soul that I couldn't get filled I was filling it with all the wrong things I was blinded. I tried everything from out of the body experiences to yoga to numerology, to opening myself up to demons to take posession, alcohol, drugs--I tried everything to fill that void spot... to no avail until I stole that Holy Bible and found out that Jesus is the way the truth and the life... amen.
King Jesus sets the captive at liberty.
Listen, the day I got saved Jesus, blessed Jesus, filled that void spot that was in my life and He can fill that void spot in your life, friend. Jesus is the answer. If you're sick and tired of being sick and tired in slavery to satan in the grip of sins bondage let me say to you Jesus careth for you. Jesus loves you Christ died for you that you might have joy unspeakable and full of glory. Jesus came to set the captives free and [give] liberty to sin's slaves. If you find yourself lost and undone, a lost sinner in need of the Savior you can't even know that except the Holy Ghost has revealed it to you. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation, Christ Jesus came into this world to save sinners. Christ Jesus came to seek and to save that which was lost. Jesus loved you so much that He left the splendor and glory of heaven and came into this old sin cursed world and He freely gave Himself. He freeley laid down on that old rugged cross and let them drive the nails into His hands and His feet. He hung their between heaven and earth suffering bleeding and dying for your sins. He died and was buried and on that third morning He arose victorious over death, hell, and the grave.
the wicked shall be turned into hell and those nations that forget God.
May God have mercy upon your wicked soul friend.
Listen to me, Jesus can fix all that is wrong in your life. Are you lonely in need of a true friend? Jesus is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. Listen, if the Holy Spirit is doing buisness with you don't put this off for, He that being often reproved and hardeneth his neck shall be suddenly destroyed and that without remedy. Boast not thyself of tomorrow for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. This is serious buisness. If you go on in your sin and your hell and you wipe your feet on the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ then you ought to go to hell and you dead sure will. Listen, Seek ye the Lord while He may be found. God said "My Spirit shall not always strive with men" God has got a deadline and if you cross God's deadline you will be doomed and damned.
I wish I could get you to see and believe the horrible face of when you are cast into hell. You will be ever dying and yet not able to die. Cast and bound with a great chain into the roaring of the flames, the clinking of the eternal chains with the awsome sound of the rumbling of the hellish thunder with the horrid smell of sulphur as you're hearing weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. Praying prayers that will never be heard and will go unanswered for eternity. As you're tormented in the flames and you taste the dry parched heat and as your tormented and hounded and haunted by your memory amongst the screaming human withering souls and the howling of the demons. In hell everybody hates everybody else. Fathers will see sons bound with a great chain and cast into hell while they point their finger and accuse you daddy and they'll say why didn't you live right daddy and take me to a true Bible beleiving church and read God's Bible with me and point me to the Savior, why didn't you pray with me daddy. Mothers will see daughters bound and cast into hell the prison house of despair where there will be no escape. And for eternity the ever present now the night that shall never cease, You will be doomed and damned in such an awful atmospehere that the greatest vocabulary on earth could not describe the horror and torment of eternal hell. You'll scream throughout the age of eternity that will never cease in that one eternal never ending night will be "My God My God why hast thou forsaken me?"
You say I'm trying to scare you and you're dead sure right. I wish I could scare you but it is not in my power. It is my prayer that God will go before me and send Holy Ghost conviction and speak to your heart for that is the only hope you have.
