Eight Year Old Receives the Holy Ghost
Hi to everyone around the world,
My name is Steve and I would like to share a testimony on how I got saved when I was eight. It all began one night when I was having nightmares about hell and I realised that I did things wrong like lying and so on, so I went to my mum and we started to pray about my fears and my sins. The next night I was still afraid of hell, so I kept on praying, I also prayed to receive the Holy Spirit. A couple of days later I stayed over night at my friend Daniel’s house and we were both seeking the Lord and asking for forgiveness, we also spent some time reading Chick comics because they talked about God and getting saved. The next morning when we woke-up we felt that God was with us and we felt more alive. For the next days I kept praying to receive the Holy Spirit, so my fears would go.
After a Sunday meeting everyone went witnessing, but I stayed behind with my mum. A short while afterwards my mum started praying in tongues and I just started to seek the Lord; praying to God and reading the Bible, I asked Him for answers about what I was going through and He answered my prayers by giving me the Holy Spirit and a new language. ACTS 2:4
“And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”You see that God answers prayers and He can answer your prayers, if you seek Him. MATTHEW 7:7
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”
Before I got baptised my dad sat with me and read scriptures about getting saved and explained what they meant, he wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing! We were sitting on the grass, then we got up and then we climbed down the bank into the river and slowly went to the deeper part where I was baptised by my dad and my brother. After I got baptised I felt happy and new.
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. "
"And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. "
