About 2000 years ago there stood a Man in Jerusalem and He said something like this, “If you acknowledge your sinfulness and believe on Me, God will give you His Holy Spirit and your life will change and never be the same again.” In 1960 I did what the Man had said and, lo and behold, I found that His words are true. I received God’s Holy Spirit and my life changed and has not been the same ever since. AMAZING. Not only that, but I started discovering that there were others around me who had had the same experience, and then, as I traveled, because of my work, all over Europe, Canada and parts of the US, I met many who had God’s Holy Spirit just like I. Then I heard from reliable sources that in South America there are millions upon millions of people like me. And from my two daughters and three granddaughters who have all been in Africa, I heard that there are millions and millions of such like people on that continent. And in the Middle East, there are many, yes, many people who have that same Spirit. Further east, in China, estimates are between 50 million and 100 million people who have had the same experience as I. AMAZING. And as time passed, I discovered there are people like me all over the world, in pretty well every country, from every culture, and from every age, and every level of intelligence, black people, white people, colored people, and you name it. And to my great surprise and delight, I found out that all these people had one common bond, God’s Holy Spirit and together formed the largest family and the greatest living organism on earth, and I am part of that. That has all come to pass because of what that Man said 2000 years ago. How does one explain that? AMAZING. Are you part of this family?

    Yes, Richard, it is truly amazing how so many millions all over the world can have the exact same experience without knowing each other or belonging to the same culture or background or social class. It is the miracle of the Holy Spirit making us a new creation in Jesús Christ. Hallelujah!
