Rom 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Rom 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
I am known online as superragman. Where did this name come from? It came to me in dreams I had in childhood. I didn't know what they meant, but years later this name was used to serve God on the Internet chats.
I witness for Jesus, bringing others to his saving grace. So many I talk with have had bad parents. I had good folks, a poor family, with two brothers. I had a simple upbringing, a boy with his companion dog roaming the acres of open land, barefoot and happy.
Even in a sheltered life trouble may come. At the age of nineteen, I was found to have cancer. It was during this time that I found God by calling on the name of Jesus.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Modern medicine did all they could do, but at the age of twenty, I was sent home, a skeleton from all that was done attempting to stop the cancer. It was in the months that followed that God reached down and healed me.I was healed by God and filled with the spirit witnessing to everyone of God's love.I married the girl who went through all this with me, I loved her more then God, a mistake, she went into the world, I was left apart from God and empty.
Mat 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Mat 22:38 This is the first and great commandment.
Having graduated from college, my heart was empty and alienated from God. Even after college I felt I was in bondage, unable to find meaning in my life. I found my wife with a small boy that was now my responsibility, life was starting to have meaning. Later, seeking to begin a business I knew I could not succeed without God in my life. Our family began searching and we found a church that taught God's word as truth, no compromise. After this came our daughter who was dedicated in the church to the Lord. At the age of four I led her to the Lord.
I rededicated my life and began to study God's word. Soon I was asked to teach. I will never outgrow the word of God. I love the Lord, truth and his love now guide me daily by His Holy Spirit.
2 Tim 2:15 Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
My wife, son and daughter each earned the Timothy award, having memorized hundreds of verses in the AWANA program at church. Awana stands for: Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed.
The Lord brought me a computer, from my son. Immediately I began witnessing in the Internet chats. It was over a year later that I reached someone who needed Jesus. This changed her life and mine. I saw the difference that Jesus had made in her life. I saw her delivered and conformed into the image of Jesus. Jesus still reaches people, even through the internet!
My work became the work of Jesus, as he was described by the prophet Isaiah 700 years before Jesus came to save his people.
Isa 61:1 The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
It is not my doing, but the power of God through his word that takes broken people and connects them to the living vine, Jesus. As the picture, we become connected to God through Jesus. We sing a new song of praise and Joy.
Isa 61:3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
