You receive this word in love and in truth, this podcast is titled Jesus crushes Satan. I love this podcast. I love the title. This podcast just hearing that right now. Fires me up and he should fire you up to because I was so tired of being crushed by Satan in my addiction and going to prison in being humiliated and being a disgrace and him and everything that I tried to do good in my life was destroyed by the enemy. The key thief comes to steal, kill and destroy needed that 25 years of my life until I surrender my life to Jesus Christ. When opened up with the Scripture.

Romans 1620 and the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. A man I asked myself. After I read that. Who is this God of peace and a tankard for me.

In Isaiah 96 and says, for unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government will be upon his shoulder and his name will be called wonderful Counselor, mighty God, everlasting father, Prince of peace.

There is right there written God's word by the prophet Isaiah in the Scripture the child and the son is the Almighty God, the everlasting father who came to earth in the flesh is the God of peace, Jesus Christ is the one who invaded my life when I was in prison on May 18, 2013 I was living my car selling drugs, smoking drugs, shooting drugs into my veins stealing from people in stores to pay for the drugs. I could not stop using I could not stop getting high was running wild through the Austin Texas city streets.

I abandoned my children to better my life. Nobody knew where I was for three months and the weight of sin was pressing down on me.

It was so every so dark did not know then that God was about to change my life very soon. The very next day on May 19 I was arrested by the police for theft, rushing for six counts of felony theft was looking at some good prison time on that one. I was arrested and was taken to the county jail a call this day, the day I was captured by God.

I remember when the police pulled me out of my car put handcuffs on me and I remember this vividly when he opened the door and had to duck my head to go into that backseat in the back seats are very very uncomfortable very narrow and there made out of plastic and I felt the hardness of that plastic seat and and I got in there squints Dan and I remember when when my head went under and is as I was entering that police car in there. I said to myself, thank you God. I just knew it. I just knew that that I would have a chance of stop using drugs.

Only way I'd stop using drugs if they locked me up where I couldn't get to so I was arrested that day.

May 19 now. I called this day, the day I was captured by God went to jail and then before judge and the judge sentenced me to a year in prison for my crimes.

This was a second time for me to be sent to prison. Let me tell you first amount prison. I did not make any changes while I was there actually picked up a habit of smoke a cigarette never smokes or is my life until I went to prison the first time really saw everybody on the prison yard smoking cigarettes and I used to hate cigarette.

I would put a cigarette in my mouth say my life but was what thereby was doing and not anything else to do started to take it and I developed a cigarette habit that day and then at time I was there.

Also tried making hooch which is a form of alcohol you can make with fruit, bread and sugar from the meals a day serve you and we would take him and we would find a container or something and we put it all together. Shake it up putting in a in a jar and let it ferment and alcohol when I was not trying to make any changes and spend my days gambling at the poker table and really just run around in and acting a fool while I was in prison the first time through all of this I deceive myself and believe that the experience itself of going to prison was enough to get me to stop using drugs and stealing Mattel you was wrong about that. Let me tell you after I got our prison the first time I've getting interstate compact, from Arizona.

That's where I was imprisoned in Arizona was limited to sonic the time out in the desert. I knew I needed to change. I figured been to prison once. I'm going to go start over in Texas. The swamp from one back home to my home state. There's no way I'll do drugs again because prison was so bad and I learned my lesson times out there. You said I've learned my lesson this time.

This time will be different and you always fall back in the same old sin, that same old thing that you go to your go to when life is stressful or you got some disappointment or some part or even some excitement sometimes we reward ourselves with the very thing is going to destroy us and for me it was alcohol and crack cocaine. Now it up not too long maybe a couple years being in Texas, of going back to the same thing that I was locked up in prison for using crack cocaine and stealing.

However, this time in prison. They give me my year in prison and the Texas prison system was much different than my first instead of doing the same thing that always done.

I began praying to God and ask him to forgive me begin reading the Bible and the word began to transform me the word. I felt the change word started cleansing me.

Then one day I went to the prison chapel and Jesus began to speak to me.

He told me if I gave my life to him that he would show me a better way and this time I believed him and I surrender my life to him on a prison chapel floor after year and that prison. I was released on May 27, 2014 I was over eight years ago, the day that I was released from prison moved into drug rehabilitation discipleship phone a Christian, sober living home. They call it. That's what I was I was a Christian and I was living sober and I had no desire to ever go back to that old life again. Actually when I was on that prison chapel floor for my life to Jesus Christ and was able to come about that floor and I felt the presence of Jesus Christ move through me and over me. I have not had a desire to use alcohol to drink article or use drugs since that day, so I went to that discipleship home. I soon joined spirit filled church and went to church every time they open the doors and one Sunday was baptized in Jesus name for the remission of my sins, God, fill me with his Holy Spirit as he promises in his word that I was reading I knew there was a promise of being filled with the Holy Spirit that I was filled with his power and his fire, his wisdom is understanding and his love that is unbelievable that I never felt before. This love that I experienced in Jesus Christ, and this acceptance and in this humility and this piece sees the Prince of peace. God of peace, the Prince of peace, everlasting father Almighty God hallelujah my sins been forgiven and I be made clean and the fire God has burned the addiction out of my soul like I said I would had a desire to drink alcohol you use drugs since that day that I surrendered to Jesus in prison. Nami even preaching in that same prison.

The men were like I used to be also hoping to find a better way of pointing to Jesus and many have come to know the Lord, just as I've done and they are witnesses of Jesus and of powerful testimonies of how Jesus change our lives when they surrendered it to him where normally we are marching of the saints. We are men and women who have been overcome by addiction alcohol addiction alcohol and drug addiction in God is taken us from that battlefield of addiction and from the prisons all over the United States. All of this world is raising up for himself and Army mighty army of evangelists of ministers of fire to go preach his gospel to share testimonies and some preaching to those men and that prison and pointing to Jesus when I'm preaching, many of come to know the Lord nor witnesses, and they change their lives, their lives were changed forever when they surrendered it to Jesus. I'm also evangelizing and ministering to the drug addicted and those who are imprisoned in library West Africa. This blows my mind three years ago when I surrender my life to Jesus Christ. I never believed in my wildest dreams or in my wildest imaginations that I would be preaching the gospel and ministering to people in another country in Africa.

So far, wetting, or Africa was eight years ago Harley Neuer was on the map certainly did know where Liberia was now almond library West Africa share the gospel of Jesus Christ. Sharing the love of Jesus Christ with those that are overcome with addiction.

What an awesome God.

What a great life I am humble, honored and privileged to live in Jesus Christ every day and all of this, Jesus revealed to me the truth of who he is is only one who could save my soul from hell and crush Satan once and for all under my feet.

Jesus is that God of peace. He is the God of peace, John 1125 says in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God all things were made through him without him nothing was made that was made in him was life and the life was a lot of men and the light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend matches and questions based upon the Scripture who is the light of men. The word who is a lot of the world the light that shines in the darkness, the word, who was with God, and who was God.

The word word is the light of the world and a lot of men to shine in the darkness the word Lord is my God who shines into my darkness in that prison.

So word John 114 tells us about this word. What is this word do. How did this word come to life and shine in my darkness on the Italian John 114 and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We build his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the father full of grace and truth, who became flesh and dwelt among us. I ask you word did who is the word again the word is God who is God manifested in the flesh. Jesus is God who is manifested in the flesh. First Timothy 316 talks about this and without controversy great is the mystery of godliness. It says God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the spirit seen by angels, preached among the Gentiles, believed on in the world world, received up in glory. Everything changed for me when I turned my life to Jesus Christ and that prison chapel and there was baptized through the Holy Spirit.

This is how God crush Satan under my feet in Jesus name. Matthew 28, 18 to 19 speaks of this great commission. They call it. And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, all authority has been given to me in heaven and on and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit is baptize them in the name of the father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit baptize in the name what is that name for me that name is Jesus asked two through 37 to 39 says now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart and said Peter and the rest the apostles linen brother, what shall we do then Peter said to them, repent, and let everyone you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, the promises do you and your children and all who are far off as many as the Lord our God will call. What is this gift we are to receive this gift. It says is the Holy Spirit and I'm here to tell you is the power and fire of God. Acts 18 states this, but you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be witnesses to me in Jerusalem, and all giblet Judeo and Samaria and to the end of the earth.

Let me let me ask this question.

Everyone listen to this podcast. Why do I receive this power that is promised to me in God's word this Holy Spirit.

That is power.

I received this power to be able to be a witness of Jesus Christ to the end of the earth and go and make disciples of nations and to preach the gospel to every creature. Word of God tells me today brothers and sisters. Friends of mine. My end of the earth is in the prisons in the United States were God sends me to preach his word and minister to the men and women were there today. My end of the earth is in the graveyard cemeteries ghettos in prisons in library West Africa Robin called to help Jesus set the captives free from the heavy yoke and bondage of the slavery of addiction in that country. Only Jesus breaks those chains.

Jesus broke the chains of my addiction when I surrender my life to him was baptized and filled with his Holy Spirit. The fire of God burn the addiction away and the power of the Holy Ghost gave me the power and the authority to carry his message of salvation. This gospel to all those that are living in the darkness need to come out of that darkness there in the third of the bondage of the slavery of addiction.

Hallelujah today I'm making disciples of drug addicts and prisoners. Well I should really say I am making disciples of drug addicts and prisoners. Jesus is making disciples of drug addicts and prisoners through me his vessel that he placed his Spirit in is making disciples of those in prison and that are bound by the chains of drug addiction who surrender their lives to Jesus Christ like I did when I found myself in that predicament. And in that situation in prison and bound in the heavy chains of addiction share the Scripture with you the day of Pentecost the disciples were told to go Terry in Jerusalem and that they would receive the promise from the father. That was the gift of the Holy Spirit. So they went account was about 120 and they went to the upper room is a story is told and they when they prayed and I'm sure there are fasting and praying and crying out to God like I cried out to him that prison chapel for next to getting verse one it says when the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues as of fire, and one sat upon each of them and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. I believe the reason why I'm speaking to you now do this podcast today is because my second time in prison. I believe in Jesus and received him as my Lord and Savior and repented of my sins.

Then when I was released from prison. I was baptized for the remission of those sins skilled with the Holy Ghost, like disciples on the day of Pentecost. I had my day of Pentecost and I was filled with the Holy Ghost and fire everyone is listing this podcast again already experiences you haven't already done so everyone can have their own day of Pentecost. It's a promise to you is promised in the word, I ask you now. When will your day be my day came when I trusted Jesus in my life and believe that he would show me a better way. I surrender to Jesus crying and weeping laying on my face on a prison chapel for begging him to save me any did in this process are repeated fully and wholly in turn away from my sins.

I was baptized for the remission of those sins as it states in the word that I should do and then I was filled with the Holy Spirit.

Now I am set free and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free of John 832 John 836 says, whom the son sets free is free indeed. You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. The sun shall make you free. The son is the truth. What is that truth Jesus has come to save you rescue you and set you free. So you can have a relationship with him and be a witness of him this dark and wicked world like I'm being to you here today through this podcast like I am doing to those men and women on being a witness to them in the prisons that I go to and preach the gospel share the love of Jesus Christ with I am doing it in library West Africa when I encounter the drug addicts in that country and the criminals are street criminals who found themselves overcome by this dark world wicked world and in the power of addiction over their lives and they can't break free. Romans 1620 on the state against what I opened up with this Scripture look, brothers, sisters, friend of mine. This is a promise to you happen to me what happened to you within already happened. Romans 1620 and the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen to you who are listening now.

I say this if you surrender your life to Jesus.

Now God will crush Satan.

Satan under your feet shortly like he did undermine got a piece wants to you with his Holy Spirit and give you the authority and power to crush Satan once and for all, and to keep them on your feet every day you live the rest of the days of your life is God because you be a witness to this dark and cruel world fallen world.

God has a mission for you is called out of this world is made you his chosen. You are his and he wants you to tell everyone you come into contact with about him. Hallelujah why we were created to have a relationship with Jesus Christ relationship with God through Jesus Christ, the one who came in the flesh, hallelujah, and dwelt among us. Luke 1017 through 1972 returned with joy.

These are disciples.

He sent them out to buy two in a number of $0.72, 72 disciples out to go and do what he according to do, just like he sent me out to the prisons into West Africa library West Africa. He said 72 out and when the 72 return. This is what the Scripture says in Luke 72 returned with joy and said, Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name. He replied I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.

I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions, and overcome all the power of the enemy. Nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice at the spirit submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.

These rejoice in your salvation do not rejoice that the spirit submit to you, they're not submitting you they are submitting to the Jesus Christ in you, hallelujah Saul nine 113 says you will tread on the lion and the cobra you will trample the great line and the serpent. I believe that you received the authority when you're baptized into Jesus name. And I believe you receive the power to make disciples of the nation's and be a witness to the end of the art when you're filled with the Holy Spirit. This is my truth that the Lord revealed to me search the Scriptures and ask God to reveal this truth to you when I was in prison for that year I read the Bible all day every day and went to church and listen to every preacher that came in and preach the word to us night after night after night I listen to the men and women. The many men and women volunteers who God sent to teach us the word and I believe in that word and I listen now that the Holy Spirit move on me and and and show me the truth in that were my advice for you are listening. If you have not done so already, is to surrender your life to Jesus now and let him show you a better way like you showed me. Repent of your sins and make the God of peace, your Lord and Savior and confess him as your Lord and Savior of your life with your mouth. Enjoy the spirit filled church be baptized in Jesus name for the beginner series since it is written in acts 238 and receive the gift of Holy Spirit. I believe in doing this you will have the authority and power to overcome the difficulties in your life.

Romans 837 says, yet in all things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Romans 831 what then shall we say to these things.

If God is for us who can be against us. First John 44 says you are of God, little children, and overcome them because he was in you is greater than he was in the world Holy Spirit in you is greater than the spirit that's in the world, the, the Prince of the air, hallelujah the Prince of the piece overcomes the Prince of the air, hallelujah.

Philippians 413 says I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I say I can do all things through the God of peace who strengthens me Jesus Christ who strengthens me. Isaiah 4029 says he gives power to the weak. Those who have no might he increases strength.

My strength comes from the Lord hallelujah. Second Thessalonians 3 verse three but the Lord is faithful and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one for Scranton 1557 but thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ, brothers, sisters, friends of mine was listening to this podcast to tell you this victory is yours now.
