3 Days And 3 Nights In The Belly Of The Rescue Mission
Jonah 1:17 Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.
Matthew 12:40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
Matthew 10:16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
Matthew 10:17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
Matthew 10:18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
Matthew 10:19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
I needed a cover for my bible because I got my grandma’s 1964 Thompson chain concordance and wanted it protected so I went to the Christian store on McRae and looked around and found one. They had a brown leather one and it said John 3:16 however, it said one and only son and not only begotten son. That disturbed me because I am a King James only and I don’t like the new bibles so one and only son instead of only begotten son did not sit right with me so just for that I did not want it. Then the Lord ordered me to get it so I did.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Then I left the Christian store and drove off and saw this homeless lady with a sign and the Lord said go eat with her and I was like I will turn out of the driveway and go back in the parking lot but for some reason I got on I-10. I then got scared because of my disobedience and hit the turnaround and headed back to where the homeless lady was. I started to get frustrated because of the traffic but told myself to relax, and at this intersection there was this homeless man and the Lord told me to give him ten dollars. I gave him the ten dollars but I thought that he would drink with it but the Lord told me to give him the money so I did. Let God be God.
I ended back up over there and I could not find the homeless woman so the Lord told me to go home and I did. I felt bad about missing that but it was too late so I repented to God and let it go. I told Bruce about all that took place with the homeless people and he told me that God may want you to spend a couple of nights in the Rescue Mission so I told him I would pray about that.
The Lord told me, “You are going,” so I just waited for the Lord to give me a time and a date and I was going to the Rescue Mission. Then just 1 hour later the Lord told me “Go this weekend,” which was 12/2812-12/30/12. I had to be there 9:00am Friday morning and get this adventure for Jesus started. Bruce took me in his truck and the Lord told him to go over the mountain and we arrived there at exactly 9:00am. Talk about perfection, when you do it the way the Lord says it comes out perfect. Bruce said, “I just left and went the way the Lord wanted and got there at 9:00am.” What are the chances that we would get there at exactly 9:00am, this was a total act of God. Then I went in and went to the office and told them I needed to stay 3 days and they said we will give you a cold night but you have to sleep on the floor and I said, “Yes sir no problem.”
I was now in the belly of the Mission and right when I sat down the Lord told me to pray for everyone in the room so I said, “The Lord Jesus Christ wants us all to pray together,” but they looked at me crazy and one guy said, “I believe in Jehovah and we are good.” I said okay and remained there in the TV room. Then one of those guys was talking about Catholicism and the pope so I got in the conversation and told him that the pope is Satan. That sounds mean but it is the truth. The pope thinks he is a Vicar of Christ, which is a substitute for Christ. In essence, the pope is Christ in the flesh.
Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
Then I walked around and talked to this guy named Don and he was talking about how he had been at the mission to long and that he wanted to go to work somewhere and leave town but had no money. I had brought $10.00 for whatever came my way and the Lord told me to give Don the $10.00 so I did. He was exceedingly happy and said that nobody here ever gives out money. I told Don to give all the thanks to the Lord because he told me to give him the money. (Don with red/white/blue cap in picture on the right.)
Acts 20:35 I have shewed you all things, how that so labouring ye ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.
I brought with me to the Mission a backpack with one pants, shirt, pair of socks and underwear for clothes. I had a water bottle, pen, small notebook, Bible, toothbrush, and floss. I was wearing two shirts and a bennie and a thick hoodie, pants, two pair of socks and tennis shoes.
I continued to walk around the place and check it out and ask people if they wanted to pray if the Lord wanted me to pray for them. After that I got a lunch card. Then when it was lunchtime and I went to lunch and low and behold it cost $1.50 for lunch and the cashier guy told me, “We will let you go this time but next time you have to have the money.” He said “$1.50 for lunch and another $1.50 for dinner everyday. You get breakfast for free every day.” I thought to myself, wow if a homeless person comes in off the street they get a free breakfast and can skip by one time for lunch but then after that $1.50 every lunch and dinner. The food should be free, every meal not just breakfast. Most all of the food is donated so what’s the $1.50 for? I had given my $10.00 away so I had no money left, but I have the Lord Jesus Christ.
The food I received was a foot long sausage link with French fries and it was delicious. I went to the chapel and prayed for my food and then ate. After that I went walking around the way and prayed with this older black women and the Spirit of God fell on us and it was beautiful.
Then after the prayer I met Cowboy and talked with him for quite a long time and found out he was into the Lord Jesus Christ too. We talked about our experiences we had with the Lord and what he was doing in our lives and it was a great conversation. Then when it was time for dinner I had to fast dinner because I had no money. After dinner bedtime comes very quickly and you have to get a cot and then get in line for a pillow, sheet, pillowcase and blanket. You can stay up all night or sleep. You have to be up at 5:30am and breakfast starts at 6:00am.
I got a cot and was sleeping in the hallway and was trying to fall asleep and there was a new guy coming in and they were trying to find a place for him to sleep. I thought to myself I can give him my cot and then the Lord said, “Offer your cot to him.” I was like “Uhh, ok Lord.” I said “Hey man do you want my cot and I will stay on the floor?” He said, “Yes, I appreciate it.” I had to sleep on the shower stall floor and it was freezing so I folded my blanket in half and put it on the floor and put on my third shirt and laid my other pants on the blanket to help cushion the cold floor. I started to get annoyed because of constantly waking up and then I thought, I have a warm bed and home and I can’t suffer one night. I tossed and turned all night because it was freezing in there but finally 5:30am came.
I woke up in a hurry and was very happy for that night to be done with and I moved on for the next one. That was the 2nd day, which was 12/29/12 and breakfast was at 6:00am so that was grrreat! They had oatmeal that day for breakfast and it was free! That was a big blessing and Jorge led, Cowboy himself and me in prayer for the food. After we ate Jorge left to church and did not get back till 5:00. Jorge was the guy I gave the cot to and he was another follower of Christ. Then before I left the table this cholo guy talked to me and said that we were doing good things but to be careful because God can cut you off at anytime and that’s what happened to him. Through disobedience God can shut the door at anytime and we the followers of Christ have to keep jumping the hurdles that Christ puts in front of us or else.
Matthew 11:30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
I told the cholo okay and I will watch out with that and then I left and went outside. I went to the TV room and stayed in there for a couple of hours then the office guy had me go into his office and fill out an application. I just gave him my information and just answered some questions. After the application it was lunch and the office guy gave me lunch money, which was a blessing from God. I told him thank you and the Lord had me pray for him in my head.
Lunch this time was turkey and dumplings and was pretty good. After lunch I went outside and walked around and then I heard what I thought was God but soon to find out it was not. I heard, “You are done here and you can leave now” so I prayed about that and I kept getting the same thing so I called Bruce and talked with him. I told him what I was hearing so we prayed about it and he heard that I was supposed to stay. So what I was hearing was the devil, angel of light, Lucifer, father of lies. He sounded just like the Lord Jesus Christ. I hate when that happens because it throws you off tract but praise God for 2nd confirmation.
I ended up staying and just realized that Satan was attacking and shrugged it off and kept on going and hung up with Bruce and talked with Cowboy for quite a long time. Cowboy and myself talked about the New Age Bible Movement, new age churches, prosperity gospel and the fact there are very few hell fire and brimstone preaching going on anymore. Then Cowboy started talking about the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus Christ and we both started crying because it is such a beautiful love gift he gave us. There is nothing more that someone can do for another than to give his own life. When all this happened the Holy Spirit fell upon us and we got filled with the Holy Ghost and we felt spiritually regenerated and was glad I did not leave.
Cowboy went inside and I stayed outside and I saw the owner of the Rescue Mission, which is Blake Barrow (picture on right) and the Lord told me to pray with him. I asked Mr. Barrow if he wanted to pray because that’s what the Lord wanted and he said yes. I prayed for a hedge of protection around us and other stuff and Mr. Barrow prayed for the add-on of the building to finish.
After I prayed for Mr. Barrow I met this guy Israel and the Lord told me to pray for him and we prayed together and I led us in prayer and it was nice. After that we started talking and I talked to him about getting re-gened in Jesus through obedience and he said he had been traveling for along time and that he is a Yoga instructor and when he said that, the Lord said, “Tell him about the Kundalini,” and I said, “Okay Lord,’ and told him that the Kundalini is a evil energy that manifest through Yoga and meditation. Israel got very upset with me and said do you even know what you are talking about? He said, “The Kundalini spirit is the extension of the Holy Spirit.” I said, “The Holy Spirit comes from the Lord Jesus Christ and the Kundalini spirit comes from the devil.” To read about Kundalini energy you can check out “Kundalini Rising Exposed.”
1Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
He said, “There are lots of Yogines who are real nice people so how could they be playing with an evil spirit?” Israel Got mad and walked off and smoked a cigarette. Then later I saw him and the Lord said, “Tell him about me,” and I said, “Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior?” Israel said, “You guys have to stop doing that,” and then the Lord said, “Leave him alone you did my will.”
Then after that I walked around and this lady started to walk up and the Lord said, “Pray for her,” so I said, “Miss the Lord wants us to pray together.” She said, “You can pray for me while I walk around this building and by the way where is the front door?” I said, “Right around the corner” and she said, “Thank you.” I went back to my business and kept chilling outside. She came out of the building and she said, “Come sit down with me,” and I said, “Ok.” Then we started talking and she asked me what my story was and I told her that I have a truck and a place to live in the northeast of El Paso. I told her that the Lord had me to go to the Mission to know what it feels like to be homeless and that I had to stay there for 3 days and 3 nights: “I leave Monday morning.” And that was my story.
She said that she had come from the Opportunity Center and was checking out the Mission but they said they were full and the Mission would not let her in. She said that she had been staying at the park and that’s all she said but as we were talking I could feel a strong spirit of lust and I was getting turned on and she said, “Ohh, and kind of yawned and lifted up her jacket to show me some skin and I looked and then looked down. Then she asked for my # and said she would call me to see if I made it back home safely. Then the Lord said, “No! Do not give her your #” but I did anyway and then she said, “Come walk with me”, and the Lord said, “No! Do not walk with her” but I said, “Ok.” I got up and started to walk with her and it did not feel right especially after the Lord told me “no”.
The spirit of lust was so strong I could not help myself and I cried out to God in my head and said, “Lord please help me because I cant seem to listen to you, I know I am doing wrong and should listen to you but I can’t seem to do it.” When we got to the railroad tracts she said, “Uhh, That’s ok you can go back and I can go myself from here,” and I said, “Ok,” left and felt way better because I knew that’s not what God wanted.
Psalms 91:15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
The Lord spoke to me for about 15 to 20 minutes. The Lord God Almighty said that He was not mad at me and that He was showing me another weakness I had and that I had to fix it right then and there. He said that the spirit of lust got a hold of me and that women can be very powerful with sex. The Lord told me that I had disobeyed him twice and that situation can be dangerous because of the disobedience and not knowing what that woman had. The Lord said that he had to cut that off right away because even though I knew God did not want me to do that I still did. The Lord said, “Do not pull an Adam,” meaning he knew not to bite the apple after Eve but did it anyway.
The Lord said, “Do not mess up our relationship we have over a woman I don’t even want you with.” She does not love you but I do saith the Lord. The Lord went on to say, “That woman will tear you apart and then tear you apart from me.” I said, “Please forgive me Lord for I gave you disobedience twice,” and kept praying for quite awhile and kept repenting and I felt better and just realized the power behind the spirit of lust. The cholo that talked to me that same day at breakfast told me to keep on going with the Lord because at some point of disobedience the Lord can shut the door on you. Now I see that the cholo saying that to me at breakfast was directed at the woman I met.
The Lord also gave me scripture about this whole incident and it was Deuteronomy 8:19-20 which says, “And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God and walk after other gods, (the woman) and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish. As the nations which the Lord destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the Lord your God.” That is surely a death threat from the Lord God Almighty so I cannot ever do that again or else I will surely die. It is probably not a physical death but a spiritual death, like, you will never enter into my rest, and you will never inherit the kingdom of heaven. I definitely want to avoid all of that so I will be obedient to the Lord, Amen. I just wonder what the Lord told that women in her head when we got to the railroad tracts? Maybe it was, ‘This guy is a serial killer and he will rape you and cut your head off,” because you see she changed her mind real quick when we got to the railroad tracts and only God knows what he said. We can only guess.
Later I called Bruce and told him about the woman incident and he said “I can tell you that she is a whore.” Then I told him I had slept on the shower stall floor and it was freezing so we prayed to keep me warm and for me not to go hungry.
Then I went inside the Mission and Cowboy gave me a bag of cookies and candies, which was great because I did not have any lunch money to eat. Then I just sat in the hallway and read my Bible and then it was time for lunch and everyone went but me, and when some people came back they said there was free pizza. I was happy and my prayers had been answered, I got food and at night I did not have to sleep in the shower stall. Thank you Lord, so I got 4 pieces and saved half of one of them in the bag Cowboy gave me for the cookies and candies.
After lunch I went to where I slept the night before and got back to reading my Bible. Then at about 5:15 Jorge was back from an all day excursion at the Universal Church. At this time it was the second night, which was 12/29/12. I listened to what Jorge said which was that the Lord wanted him to start a Mission. Then Jorge told me that one time he needed bus money and he did not have any money and quarters appeared on the street supernaturally from the sky and I was like wow. If you have faith the size of a mustard seed you can move mountains.
Matthew 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Then the Lord had me tell Jorge about the spirit of lust with that woman and disobeying the Lord twice. I told him about Duet. 8:19-20 as the death threat the Lord gave me and he tripped out on that. I told him about the “New Age Bibles Versions”, which are “Abomination Books” and the “Executive Order 13397”. There are 2 types of Greek Hebrew manuscripts, the Alexandrian or Egyptian text, which is the corrupt text and the Textus Receptus, which is the original text in the King James Bible. You can read all about it in “The Attack” tract on this website. Click on the “New Age Bible Versions” button (http://www.fmh-child.org/NewAgeVersions.html) and it will take you to ““The Attack” tract. He said when he was at church there was a lady that was sitting next to him and when the congregation held hands and prayed he could feel the spirit of lust. There was a woman on both sides of him and he did not know which woman had the spirit. So it was a strange coincidence that we both had a similar encounter the same day. Coincidence is spelled GOD!
Then the office guy said that it was time for bed and we had to get our cots and get our sheet, blanket, pillow and pillowcase. They put Jorge in the closet and put me in the laundry room. Then I went to go outside and call Bruce and tell him about everything that was going on and talked with him for a while and I thought I saw Jorge leaving and later found out he did leave because he did not want to sleep in the closet. I would have switched with him but I did not think about it in time and I think that the Lord wanted him to humble himself and sleep in the closet but he ended up leaving and did not humble himself and sleep in the closet. I prayed for him a lot of the night and the Lord kept telling me that he was going to be all right. I just could not believe he left in the cold night because the closet would have better than outside.
Jorge has a lot of gifts from God and the more gifts you have the more the Lord expects out of you. Jorge said that every time he follows the Lord the devil attacks him a lot and he losses everything and has to start all over again. “Stop trying to accumulate and maybe you won’t get everything taken away.” That’s what Bruce said; God is trying to teach him something. Jorge is highly gifted and it is hard to follow Christ but there is either heaven or hell so everyone has to pick his or her destiny.
8/31/12 I got up in the Morning at 5:30am and went to breakfast at 6:00am and the Lord said I could leave at 9:00am. After breakfast I went outside and saw this guy on the stairs and the Lord said, “Pray for him,” so I went up to him and talked to him and he said that he had a house, truck, car in Houston but left all that because he was doing to many drugs and all the people he knew over there would bring drugs to his house and he could not help himself so rather than dying doing drugs he left. His step dad tried to sell him to child trafficking people in Juarez when he was a little kid. This guy’s name is Joey and he rejected the prayer and did not want to pray because he said he had no faith. I told him to pray to God and ask God to reveal himself to you and told him it’s all about a relationship with Christ and being obedient to him. I was waiting for Bruce to pick me up so Joey went inside because it was cold and then I went inside because it was cold and just waited for Bruce inside the Mission. Then Bruce called me so I told everyone goodbye and crossed the railroad tracts and waited there at the intersection and 1 minute later Bruce showed up I left the belly of the Rescue Mission.
1Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Sometimes the Lord Jesus Christ wants us to do things to make us more Christ like even going to the Rescue Mission to be homeless. Obedience is always better than death.
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
John 15:9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
From Christopher Fuller
YOU CAN HAVE SALVATION, BUT ONLY ON ONE CONDITION;
That you are totally sold out to Christ, you don’t have any personal rights, you no longer have any right to do anything. You will be a servant. You are in essence signing your own death warrant because Satan will hate you and try to kill you. You are gaining eternal life and citizenship in heaven. You give up your life here on earth to gain life in heaven.
