Over three decades ago, I chose to walk in the footsteps of Christ. Jean, my girlfriend at the time, had recently embraced salvation. She insisted we attend church, and to appease her, I did — sporadically. My childhood memories of the Bible, of proclaiming Jesus as my Lord and Savior, seemed distant. As adolescence beckoned, I drifted away for myriad reasons. While I gradually warmed to the church-going experience, my commitment was still superficial. My indulgences in smoking, gambling, and other vices remained. Jean's growing conviction about our wayward lives prompted our decision to marry, which I initially took in stride. As she delved deeper into scripture, I joined her journey. One fateful evening, she was overtaken by the Holy Spirit, and her fervor drew me in. The events of that night are a blur; what I recall is a profound, visceral experience that left me disoriented. The fundamental transformation occurred the next day. Immersed in the story of the old and young prophets in the Book of Kings, I was gripped by a profound empathy for the young prophet's plight. Suddenly, I found myself speaking in tongues. This was the commencement of my incredible journey with the Lord. Through the Holy Spirit, I discovered the essence of true love in Jesus. My heart brimmed with such joy that I felt an overwhelming urge to share it. But this newfound zeal wasn't universally appreciated. To many, my declarations of love became overbearing. My commitment to the church deepened, and I voraciously absorbed the teachings of the Bible. A miraculous chapter unfolded when Jean shared divine messages she believed she had received with me. Initially skeptical, my doubt faded as I discerned the biblical truths within her writings. These teachings fortified my faith and shaped my character. Despite our earnest beginnings, our spiritual journey was not without detours. But every time I revisited these teachings, fresh insights emerged. The intensity of my commitment waned for a time, but in November 2022, a health scare jolted me into renewed urgency. I pondered our mortal existence, realizing the importance of preserving and sharing the divine instructions Jean had received. While Jean hesitated to publish, I felt a deep-seated urge to share these revelations. And so, more than 30 years later, this compilation came to be. It’s a testament to our journey and a guide to deepening your understanding of the scriptures. These teachings are not just personal reflections; they are a call to approach the scriptures without prejudice and to embrace God’s perspective. This volume is just a glimpse. I hope to unveil all the teachings in due time. It's my sincere wish that these revelations draw you closer to God and enrich your spiritual journey. God bless.
