Only True Repentance Saves

Vision And Confirmations From The Lord

There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death (Proverbs 14:12 NIV). And “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord” (Acts 3:19 NIV).

Beloved brethren, as I promised with our last article last week, we will be briefly sharing some things the Lord revealed to us and the Lord wants all Christians to take note of this message. This is a TRUE TESTIMONY!

On March 7, 2017, Charis had a vision from the Lord that we would be notified of something on the 20 of the following month. She was also shown a large tombstone with a name on it which was blurred out. Since the vision was a puzzle to us, we knew that somebody we knew was going to pass away but we did not know who it was going to be. As it was, exactly on 20 April 2017 my wife received a text message from her father who said that he was very, very sick. However, after hearing about his sick, we still did not realise that the vision was referring to him, it was only after his condition deteriorated further that we knew the vision was referring to my father in law.

Furthermore, on May 27, 2017 my mother and I and my brothers and sisters visited my father in hospital who lost his speech due to his illness and after we received a call that he was expected to pass on at any time. It was my expressed intention to encourage my father in the Lord since he was born again from a very young age and knowing that he did not walk faithfully at times, I wanted to ensure that he keep a repentant spirit. After asking everybody to leave me and my father alone I started encouraging him to repent of his sins, but he refused by pushing me away at least on three occasions. By this, I pressed on as I prayed in tongues and he calmed down. When I prayed the salvation prayer he did not respond or nod in agreement that he was following the prayer. At the same time, I knew we were not alone and I had to come up against some demons. I could sense a presence of evil and just then he seemed to struggle with some unseen forces this I noticed from his eyes that he was in terrible fear and very restless. Being cool as it was on this day, my father tried pushing the covers of himself as if he was getting extremely hot but when I felt his body temperature his body heat was very cold as he relentlessly starred at something. I guess if he could talk he would have told me what he was seeing and the expression of fear and anguish on his face and the fact that he threw the covers of himself he must have seen the flames of hell. Knowing that my father was saved, it surprised me to see him behaving that way, despite my misgivings we still hoped that he made it to Heaven.

What the Lord Confirmed (Brother Glenn)

Day’s after my father in law died, we prayed that the Lord revealed to us where he went to and we knew the Lord would show us something since he foretold through us his passing, just as it was the case in most of the testimonies we shared on this website. During the early hours of Monday June 11, 2017, I (Brother Glenn) received a vision from the Lord regarding my father in law. When the vision opened, I saw him laying down weeping and he seemed to be in deep pain. It appeared to me in the vision as if he was wishing to die. Just as I though he was going to die, he suddenly jumped up and declared a message to me to convey to some family members and after giving the message he laid down again in the same position as if he was weeping and wishing to die (Luke 13:28). I had a measuring line in my hand and I measured the position where my father in law was laying (Lamentations 2:8; Isaiah 34:11). After measuring the position where he was laying, the measuring line came out straight but his position was towards the far left end (Matthew 25:41) and this was enough for me to know that my father in law was in torments and not in the Presence of the Lord as we thought and hoped. Soon after measuring my father in law’s position, I went on to measure another man I knew, and just as I measured his the position where he was laying, the line came out twisted and he immediately confessed, “I believe in God the Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit”, and I heard a voice saying, “Your positive and truthful confession does not mean that you are saved and that you will escape God’s Judgement”. END!

Now Brethren, I was hesitant to share this vision as I did not know why my father in law was not in Heaven. This led me to prayer seeking more confirmation from the Lord, and the Lord in a vision to me this morning (19 June 2017) said, “If a person did wrong things and repented (turned from his wrongs) from it, his sins are forgiven (Psalm 32:5; 1 John 1:9), but if a person ask for forgiveness but continues in wrong doing their sins remain” (Hebrews 10:26). As with all our other testimonies, it hurts to speak the truth and I serve the Lord to obey Him, and we had to say just as the Lord commanded in order to WARN and SAVE SOULS!

Thus, the Lord revealed to us that my father in law did not repent from the spirit of adultery and he died in that sin amongst other sins. From this we understand that he disobeyed the Lord and the Lord said that Christians who continue serving Him while living unrepentantly in their sins will die with that sin(s). Often, we hear Christians asking the Lord to forgive them their sins but after confessing their sins they continue in their old way of living, in other words the pleasure of sin is better than obeying the Lord (Ephesians 4:22-24). Let us not be deceived brethren, we will reap what we sow (Galatians 6:7), God forgives and saves truly repentant sinners, and those who rely on grace while being openly disobedient to the Lord will awake surprisingly in Hell. While there are those who mock our messages we are unyielding in our obedience to the Lord as we share with our conscience to save the discerning, the truly God-fearing!

If you are a Born Again Christian, but you live and continue in your old sins as if you were not saved, repent and turn from your sins. Let us all learn from the experience of my father in law who was a Church leader who hardly missed Church services. Like we said in our ‘Sin of Adultery’ article, the Lord invites people who divorced and who were not saved and Christians who knows the Lord’s teaching will be severely punished.

Blessed Grace and Peace in Christ
