Starting your faith journey with Jesus.

Congratulations! You have come into the Kingdom of God, which is the Kingdom of light!


You have become one with God and will learn to speak with Him in Spirit and in Truth.


Walking with Jesus Christ, the King of kings, and Lord of lords, is one of the biggest miracles you can have. This is a profound and life-changing experience that is the pathway to God, to hearing His voice, seeing into the Supernatural, finding out who you truly are (and who you're identity truly is), growing in spiritual understanding (learning about God and becoming more aware of the spiritual world around you), and an having unwavering connection with the God, where you get to talk with God — and He talks back!


You have received God into your heart... that is a huge step! Now, what do I do?


“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. John 3:16

When I had my first vision encounter with the supernatural at two years old, I didn't know I was encountering God's Kingdom. I could see something happening in front of my eyes, it looked like it was taking place in front of me, but it was actually happening in the supernatural. God encounters are normal when you get saved because you are actually a spirit being, born of the spirit inside a flesh body, and the spiritual world is constantly knocking at your door to come in, to speak with you, and to encounter spiritual things.


Becoming a Christian is the first step to understanding the Kingdom of God and taking this spiritual journey with Him. It will deepen your relationship with God, truly find out who He is, what is His plan for your life and living a supernatural life that will transform you forever. You will begin to see incredible blessings and start walking in miracles, signs and wonders — just as it always should have been.


The Bible tells us that if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart, you will be saved! Saved from what?


That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. Romans 10:9-11

From the world of darkness and going to hell, missing God completely and missing going to heaven because we simply don't know the truth. But, we are delivered from the kingdom of darkness and our eyes are opened to see the light and truth once we make the confession of salvation and believe in Jesus.


He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love. Colossians 1:13

Our spiritual eyes have been blinded by Lucifer, the Angel who fell from Heaven, who continually deceives us to take us away from God. He keeps us in darkness, from knowing the truth about God, the Kingdom of the Supernatural and only concerned about living your fleshly life, so that you won't know about salvation and who you truly are. He keeps us so busy with bills, sickness and worries of the world so that we are distracted from knowing the truth and living the God-kind-of-life, a supernatural life, that should be full of love, joy, peace, and supernatural encounters.


In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Corinthians 4:4

Jesus said, "I AM THE LIGHT" and anyone who comes to me — comes to the Father. God is our father in Heaven, he is not a distant God who does not talk to us, but a loving Father who wants to communicate with us daily, who wants us to connect with Him, and the way He did that was through the death of Jesus on the cross and the shedding of His blood, because life is in the blood, so that we can have a relationship with Him.

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12

The Bible clearly teaches that the moment a person turns from his sin, repents, and trusts in Jesus to be forgiven of his sin, he is saved (Acts 2:37-41). He has passed from spiritual death to spiritual life (John 5:24) and has been declared not guilty in God's court of law (Rom 3:21-26).


God loves you and has a plan for you, and salvation is step one in the process. Now, we have to get to know Who God really is and that starts with reading the Bible, which leads us to Jesus, who leads us to God.


Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6

Many religions claim to know spiritual truth and the way to enlightenment, but this is not the way to God, these are merely deceptions created by demonic beings to steer you away from God, and the truth, to keep you in darkness and following them so that you can continue walking away from God and towards eternal damnation - a life separated from God! I was born into a Muslim family and we were taught to "fear" God, that he had a big stick and was going to smack me if I did anything wrong, an in-turn this made me so scared of a great God out there in the universe somewhere that I couldn't connect with him on a personal level, and when I did prayers to Allah, who I thought was God cause that's what I was taught, it was out of physical fear, not out of a personal relationship with a true loving God who actually loved me and wanted to get to know me, and me to know Him, and walk with Him in my everyday living.


And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12


When I had my first encounter with a demon, who came to torment me, and I said the prayers to Allah and Muhammad, the demon laughed at me so loud it was piercing and said "they could not hear me," mocking the very thought that I was praying to someone that wasn't either really there or was a demonic entity parading as God. Allah, or Muhammad they did not turn up to protect me or save me, this Allah was silent, and Muhammad did not come from the grave to save me, he too was silent, but when I met Jesus, I encountered light, love and the truth. I began to hear the Voice of God at seventeen years old, began to see Angels, come and go and protect me, and then saw Jesus — face to face — who would come to talk with me, and guide me to all truth. He is a God that is real, and alive, cares about my everyday and soon enough I saw God, His light and felt His love, and had many heavenly encounters with Saints and the Heavenly realms. This supernatural ability to see and hear God is available to everyone, we just need to tap in, and no demon on earth, spiritual being, or unbelieving person can take that away from me.


Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6

No one can go to God without going through Jesus, His whole purpose was to come and die for our sins, that separate us from God, so that we can have a relationship with God.


Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” She said to him, “Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who is coming into the world. John 11:25-27

Jesus tells us through the bible that He is:

I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved.... John 10:9

I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. John 10:11

I am the gate for the sheep. John 10:9

Jesus is the Word and is with God. John 1

And the Word (Jesus) became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14


The Bible is the Scriptures that is breathed out by God and given to man to lead them back to Him. The Bible leads us to Jesus, who is the gateway into Heaven, and meeting God and giving them eternal life— a life forever with God.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

It tells us who God is from the beginning and the victorious end story that we win over all darkness and dark spirits, whose time is short and running out.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1


When we seek God's Kingdom of Light and love - we receive everything!


But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well,” Matthew 6:33.


This means daily seeking Jesus, reading the Bible, loving others as Jesus did, and trusting He will care for all your needs. It's time to grow in your faith with God.
