I was a boy when Jesus spoke to my heart and inspired this young lad with a desire to study the Bible, which my grandmother had graciously and lovingly given to me. "He made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me a polished arrow; in his quiver he hid me away." It truly is a blessing to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, the Christ.
Several years later, I received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and commemorated this experience at a water baptism. I will always remember Pastor Ingrid Bergner, a prophetess.
The ability to enter into Abba God's presence is not reserved for special or gifted people. This is an open invitation of His benevolence.
