Being Saved From Eternal Death

 How The Lord Saved My Stepmother's Soul

“I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die" (John 11:25 NIV).

NB: Vision confirmation is below! Please read the article to understand the vision

Brethren, we would like to thank you all for your prayers and support during our time of bereavement. During our various traveling, the enemy tried his best to intimidate us by causing others to drive into us leading to some minor accidents. However, the Lord has been gracious to us by protecting us all the way. It is thus very imperative for believers to always pray when driving for the enemy of our souls is after your life (1 Peter 5:8). Being a mature believer, don't let your spiritual guard down, Satan is waiting for every opportunity to strike and he does so with hateful intent (John 10:10).

Now, had he been successful in stopping us, he could have denied us the joy of winning a soul (Proverbs 11:30). As a ministry, we have a passion and constant appetite to win souls for the Lord's Kingdom, and the Lord fulfilled that desire during last week's Sunday (19 June 2022) evening. While we could not make it in time to lead my deceased sister to the Lord, He comforted us and allowed us to be there to win my stepmother's soul.

Briefly, our beloved stepmother, (Lorna) was not confined to a long sickbed. When we visited them during the March school holidays she appeared healthy and seemed to be in good spirit. It was earlier this month that her condition deteriorated rapidly. After learning from my father (Brother Glenn) how the fear of death was agonizing her through late-night screaming and the calling of some people's names in the house. This was a punishing fear to her and a great disturbance for others in the house. After learning from this, I prayed for her commanding that spirit to leave by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ this led to her becoming calmer which afforded her to get better sleep amidst her heavy breathing problem. 

As it was, her salvation did not come easy, being a smoker she was constantly led to smoke while her condition did not allow her to. After taking her to the hospital on Saturday (18 June 2022) and when we returned that evening she angrily demanded a cigarette and brethren we were walking a tight rope as her salvation was slipping away. Honestly, I actually lost hope in her stubborn behavior, but the Lord had other plans. We learned never to give up on souls, it is true the Lord Jesus Christ saves those who repent while dying (Luke 23:43), DON'T GIVE UP! BEING SAVED LEADS TO ETERNAL LIFE!

Let me confess, that we have been praying for her salvation and deliverance since early 2019 and the faithful and merciful Lord Jesus Christ used those prayers to save her on her birthday (19 June 2022). During this same evening, I was witnessing someone and being full of the Holy Spirit, I summoned almost everyone in the house to join me in prayer for her. when I noticed how heavy she was breathing and her slow responses, I realized her time was limited. At that same moment, the Lord revealed to me that she did not have the WORD in her to receive healing. Brethren, Bible reading is critically important because He uses His Word to heal us (Psalm 107:20), since she had no WORD foundation, she did not have enough faith to receive her healing. Now, after briefly explaining to her that the Lord only needs faith as small as a mustard seed, she believed, and since she was breathing heavily and after praying for her, I led her to the Lord by encouraging her to pray with us the 'Our Father' prayer and the LORD heard and gave her salvation...Halleluyaaaah! Below follows the confirmation vision the Lord gave my wife after praying for such confirmation.

Vision Given to Desiree van Rooyen (25/06/2022).

I received a short vision during the early hours of Saturday morning. I saw aunty Lorna (not her real name) laying in bed smiling repeatedly. I could sense she was no longer sick. There was a wardrobe in the room where I saw her clothes bundled together in a card box. While I was sitting on the edge of the bed where she was laying I accidentally put my left leg in the box and when I lifted up my leg with the box in it, suddenly the card box turned into a maroon reddish booth (signifying the gospel {Ephesians 6:15}). When I turned around to Aunty Lorna, she was laughing happily and joyfully with her face literally lighting up. Her appearance was radiant and she looked healthy. As I was looking at her, a thought came into my mind, "but is Aunty Lorna not dead" at that moment, I heard the Voice of the Lord saying, "She is not amongst the dead, but amongst the living". END! 

Blessed regards

Brother Glenn and Sister Desiree
