Something really special happened this last Thursday, August 6, 2012.
I was ordained and licensed as a minister of the gospel.
When I was 12 the Lord called me by letting me experience the Rapture and audibly hearing His voice say: "Tell Them to Prepare" (You can read this story in my book: "Tell Them to Prepare - A New Look at the book of Revelation"). By the time I was in my 20's the Lord had placed me in the office of a prophet at 18 and started teaching me about the book of Revelation and revealing the scope of my calling. Back then I knew the scriptures and that I should be mentored and ordained under a man of God into the ministry. However, every time the opportunity for this arose something would happen and the Lord would intervene and pull me away, taking me somewhere else. Because God had placed a very unique calling on my life and given me a very special message to prepare the Church for the Rapture, He couldn't allow just anyone to stand in that position, it had to be someone who understood that calling and also had a very special calling and anointing on their own life as well.
For more than 30 years I have pressed the Lord on this matter and wondered if the Lord would ever place me under the mentor-ship of a man of God, until this last Thursday, when I was ordained and licensed as a minister under Dr. Nasir Siddiki at Wisdom Ministries in Tulsa, OK (visit). I have been learning from Dr. Siddiki for about two years now and was introduced to him by my best friend, Dr. Pancho Valenzuela (visit). This last May I was attending one of Dr. Siddiki's conferences for his Spiritual Sons and Daughters when they asked me to join. At that time I was unsure if that was something I should do, because of what had happened in the past. After returning home the Holy Spirit told me to accept their offer and become one of Dr. Siddiki's Spirituals Son's and be ordained under his ministry. I obeyed and this last Thursday was ordained as a licensed minister by Dr. Nasir Siddiki and Wisdom Ministries and also joined Wisdom University as well.
It has taken God over 30 years, but He is working out His plan in my life and I will accomplish all that He has called me to do to prepare the Church before the day of its glorification. There is much I have to teach before then, but one day I will deliver a very special announcement, and the Bride of Christ will be prepared when that day comes.
Live in God's Peace.
