“The Most High told the prophet Jeremiah some powerful words in Jeremiah 1:5, he said ‘Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee’.
Those words spoken by the Most High give us insight into the eternal plan that he had for the life of Jeremiah, and not just the plan that he had for Jeremiah, but also the plans that he has for all his obedient sons and daughters. Before he formed us in our mothers belly he knew us and as psalm 37:23 declares, ‘a good mans steps are ordered by the Most High’.
I’m sure many of us can look back at our lives and identify how The Most High has strategically ‘ordered our steps’. Well, this article is my testimony about how the Most High has ordered my steps, how he has woke me up to the truth, and how he has freed me from the bondage of deception…
Since the age of 11 I have been a truth seeker. I read any book I could get my hands on that delved into the subjects of history, prophecy, philosophy or religion. I was baptized at age 12 and spent the better part of my teenage years and early twenties growing in my knowledge of The Most High and his Son. I even became a baptist minister in my very early twenties and preached under the baptist doctrine for almost eight years. However, in 2009 while on my way to speak at a baptist youth revival I was involved in a car accident which almost took my life, but miraculously I survived. I will explain why this was a turning point in my seeking of truth in just a moment.
While in the hospital recovering I began to have these vivid dreams about people dressed in these beautiful Hebrew garments. In my dreams the women would be wearing head coverings, the men were dressed in full length robes and wearing dazzling gold! These dreams I had while in the hospital began to captivate my imagination and I couldn’t understand why I kept seeing these things in my dreams. After I left the hospital and fully recovered from my accident I continued to preach under the baptist doctrine, but secretly my truth seeking was taking me in a direction that began to make me see the deception in many things that I was taught and that I had even begun teaching and preaching to others. Looking back on it, I realize the Most High used those dreams I was having in the hospital as a catalyst to my awakening that would happen at least a year and a half later.
Throughout the course of that year and a half after I recovered from my accident I began to learn about how many holidays celebrated In Christianity had pagan origins, I began to learn how The Most High has not done away with his chosen people, the Hebrews, and I learned how the western world had inserted many heretical doctrines within Christianity during the first and second centuries. Upon realizing these truths it upset me at first that I had believed lies for so long. I repented to the Most High for having preached and taught lies to so many other souls. Now, since coming into the truth I serve the Most High with an even stronger zeal than I did as a baptist minister! I still preach, teach, and baptize and I fellowship with other like-minded brothers and sisters in Georgia and Illinois every friday evening and sabbath day. I keep the Most Highs feast days and his sabbaths now except for the pagan holidays and I finally have peace that I am following the TRUE way!
I pray that the Most High works in your life just as he has worked in mine! Keep seeking the truth and you shall find it! Halleluyah!!
