My 34th Spiritual Birthday
When the Word of God was preached and sown in the ground of my heart, I believed. And the seed was germinated by my faith. “But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringteth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty” – (Mt.13:23). God created man from the ground and when the seed of God’s Word was sown in my piece of ground, my body, the seed produced a new creature, a Holy Spirit man. And I now have eternal life. “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever” – (I Pet.1:23). My new birth is by incorruptible seed. I have eternal life and will one day have an incorruptible body – (I Cor.15). The seed lies dormant with no true faith in the hearer.
I now had
two birthdays. My first fleshly birthday was on
I am now a son of God – “But as many as received him to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” – (Jn.1:12,13). My birth in the family of God had nothing to do with my earthly father or of the flesh, but had everything to do with my Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit and His dear Son who died on the cross for me as my personal Savior. My earthly Father was not holy but my Holy Father in heaven created me in His image, a holy creature with sins forgiven.
I became one of the few that entered in through the narrow gate and way into eternal life and heaven. My Father saved me from the wide gate and the broad way that leads to destruction and hell where many are on. “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” – (Mt.7:13,14). Jesus saved me from the “Gates of Hell” – (Mt.16:18) and “The gates of death” – (Ps.9:13) and I will not “be hurt of the second death” – in the lake of fire – (Rev.2:10 and 20:14). I will have the right and privilege to enter through the gates of the Holy City of God, New Jerusalem, which comes down to earth from heaven and built by God – (Rev.21).
On St. Patrick’s Day, the day of the green, the color of life, I received eternal life in Christ. I have a new heart and a new spirit and one day a new body and a new name. The shamrock was supposedly used by St. Patrick to illustrate the trinity of God – the three persons of the Godhead – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. On St. Patrick’s Day 1972, when I received the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior and was born again, I experienced the three persons of the Godhead – through Christ the Son I have the Father and the Holy Spirit abides within me – three persons in one God. I personally am a part of the trinity.
I the Father am the One
The second One is my Son.
Now I’ve sent the third one too –
The Holy Spirit I’ve poured in you.
I pray God will use my testimonies, both this one and my ‘Testimony Tract’ to win souls to Christ. I pray God will use it especially to save Roman Catholics out of the bondage and the terrible spiritual darkness they are in. Avail yourself of God’s mercy and grace in His beloved Son. Repent of your sins and by faith believe on Christ in your heart for forgiveness and remission of sins. Confess your sins to Christ, not to a priest. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” – (I Jn.1:9). May you be born again into the family of God through God’s beloved Son. You will know when you’re born again because you will become a new creature. Don’t deceive yourself.
On St. Patrick’s day, I became a saint of God – Saint Micheal Storti. “Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours” – (I Cor.1:2), when you’re born again and sanctified in Christ and the Holy Spirit abides in you, then immediately you are a holy one of God, a saint. No man, no Pope, can make you a saint, God alone makes you a saint. If you ain’t born again, you ain’t a saint – you’re an aint.
Have you had your spiritual birthday from God?
