I was brought up in a town in Derbyshire, England and grew up to view church as a holy building where people went to try to meet God, or try to impress God through being nice and singing. I only attended for christenings, weddings and funerals – the religious part before attending the party! I liked being in control of my own life, without any guilt at all. It was only later in life, through a series of Divine promptings that led me to a church introduction to Jesus, where, for the first time I witnessed the power of the Holy Spirit which made me conscious to the realness of God! But the sinful world I thrived on felt exposed and impossible to live without so, like a frightened rabbit in the headlights, I ran.
I continued to live in ignorance for years until eventually my lifestyle destroyed my life and I came to the point of wondering what my life would have looked like if I’d allowed God to make my decisions instead of me. I re-attended the church introductory course with a surrendered heart, a complete realization that there was in fact nothing good in me, and nothing I could give God to repay Him back for a lifetime of sin. The only thing I had to offer was my repentance, love and my body as a living sacrifice, and if the Lord could do something with this broken vessel, then He was welcome to it! As Jesus died for me and paid my penalty, I chose to crucify “my way” that He may live through me His way, thus giving me a brand new start in life, to be born again by His Spirit.
On receiving the Holy Spirit I became spiritually alive and experienced for the very first time the consciousness of God and He spoke into my spirit and said, “son I have plans for your life and if you want to go where I want to take you, you must yield to Me.” Within a week I was receiving the most incredible dreams showing me things about myself and as I yielded to the convictions of the Holy Spirit I effortlessly stopped smoking, swearing and getting drunk within a week! The craving inside me to know more about Jesus was overwhelming, and as our relationship grew, so did my mind-sets and heart as He kept removing the hardness from around it.
But at the same time as He was transforming me, along the journey I started to attend church, from where I picked up and experienced some religious spirits and mind-sets which interfered with my walk with God. He showed me that I needed to “drink from the waters of Kathie Walters’ teachings.” So as I soaked in her teachings, He showed me that I had received vital keys for walking in His truths, and the more I aligned myself with His truths, the more I witnessed Him work through me. Over the years, I’ve witnessed many signs, wonders and miracles through operating in the Spirit and even with ministering angels. It’s been a privilege to be mentored by Kathie Walters who’s opened me up to understand and receive God’s gifts, and become a close friend in the process.
So now it’s my privilege to share and help other people to hear His voice, break off religious spirits, encourage people to move in their gifts and come into the fullness of their inheritance and His perfect plan for their lives too.
