HIV positive minister – Worth a good read
To those of you who are single or married, saved or not saved, this is for you. I am a 35-year-old African American or Black brother dying of Aids.
I am an owner of a Mortgage Company in Atlanta , GA. I own a 2007 Jaguar I also own a $350,000 beautiful home in Cobb County . I have a beautiful Lady who is deeply in love with mea loving family. But most important, I love Jesus, this is just a wake up call to all single brotherssisters who are professing to be Christians, but don’t want to be complete. Brothers, I had a beautiful young lady who loves the Lordworships the ground I walk on. But I still wasn’t quite happy because sometimes I would see another sister with a Coca-Cola bottle shapejust wanted to hit it. Because I was a condom, I thought that I wouldn’t catch any disease especially the killer ‘AIDS’ but guess what? I did. And the person I caught it from was a girl that I knew very well. But the condom came off now I am dying of AIDS. Yes, I wore a condomyes it did happen. God gives us time after time to straighten our lives up. I do know the Lord in his abandon pardon will forgive me of my sins. I’ve been saved now for 7 years. I found out 7 months ago that I had the virus,now I have full-blown Aids. I really didn’t think that I was doing anything wrong, because I would tell the women who I would deal with about the woman I love. I thought that was good enough. But it wasn’t. I am a good manalso a God-fearing man; but I have a weakness for women… I really wasn’t out there like you may think I was, but every once in a while I would see somethingI wanted to try. My girlfriend is a prayerful woman. I know now that she was intimate with me only because she loved meshe wanted to make me happy. Now I’ve given AIDS to the woman I love (the only one who has been faithful to me) because of my lust.
Brotherssisters, what I am telling you is that God is tired of us hurting each other each other for self-gratification. God has given me my home, my dream cara beautiful womanI took it all for granted. I’ve been tithing for 7 years. I am the chairman of my Deacon Board. But when I told my Pastor I had AIDS, he could not believe it because of the way I would carry myself. Brothers, If you have a sister who loves the Lordwho loves you for who you arenot for what you look likewhat you have, cherishlove her. Sisters. If you have a brother who loves the Lord, lovecherish him. My life has been altered. I’ve been with my lady since I was 20, I’ve always used my young age as an excuse for not being loyalnot settling down with her. I was being a hypocrite thinking that I was missing something,not realizing that I had a good woman who loved adored me. I wish I had been a real manI had appreciated the good woman God had sent by my side by not making excusesdedicating my life to her. I would love to travelmarry this beautiful young Lady, but now I can’t. I’ve embarrassed my family, my churchmy friends. But I was hardheadednow I must suffer. God is cleaning up. Stop playing with God. He is revealing the secrets of us Christians. Brothers sisters, we don’t have to have so many ‘friends,’ you know what we call them. The ones we sleep with, the ones we intend to sleep with but haven’t yet’the one we intend to ‘marry’ We don’t want anyone to know our business, but God has his way of revealing you to the world. The young people of today think so carnal we say we have been transformed. We have been transformed from what we want to be transformed from. Let’s be real. God knows that the opposite sex attracts us, he also knows the desires we have for each other because he created us that way, but we do not have to have multiple partners.
If I could do it all over again, I would marry the woman I lovelive happy forever. But now I can’t! But you can! Singles…I gotta tell you, it’s not worth it.
I urge you all Get rid of casual sex. This is really deep. After you’ve read this, think about yourself. Could this have been you? Some of you may not relate, but think about anything you are doing right now that is not of God. We are living in the lastfinal days,pretending to be saved is not going to cut it. Professing that He is Lord,yet worshipping the devil every chance you get will lead you to the same path I am walking on. Get your mind out off the gutterput it in the Word of God you’ll have great success. Don’tyou’ll have great woe. I love the LORDthank Him for all that He does in my life; therefore, I’m passing this on, this is my testimonysermon to you. Yes, I do love Jesus who has forgiven me of the repeated sins. That forgiveness does not cancel out the consequences, I have to suffer the consequences of my sinsthat’s on me. Still, the Lord is my source of existenceSavior. He keeps me functioning each dayhe has given me the strengthability to share my story with you.
I’m telling it like it is THIS REALLY is to help somebody. You know yourself, You know what you’re doing rightwhat you’re doing wrong. Do not let the world judge you coz it judges harshlywithout mercy. Do the right thing man. I praytrust you can take the courage I din’t have straighten up your life before it’s too late. I have Christ now for he is my source of joystrength, I am nothing without him but with Him I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13
If you love Jesus, send this to lots of people!!!!!! Be Positive – Be Progressive…Take the time to make a positive difference in your’s & someone’s life.
