(The testimony of one of our former students)
Having been a student of astrology, I believed that being a homosexual was part of my karma in life. Therefore, there was nothing I could do to change my lifestyle. I wanted to be heterosexual instead. After being brought up as a Christian, I had thought that God would answer my prayer to be set free of homosexuality, but it seemed that He didn't.
I broke up with my lover after a 13 year relationship. They wanted to resume the relationship and I didn't. I cried out to God, "Jesus come and help me! I don't want to go back to that relationship and I feel like I have no way out."
As I sat there contemplating what I should do, I began to see a vision. It was so real, I felt like I was really there. I felt like I was taken back in time. I was walking down a road and was so tired that I stopped to rest. I put my hand on a telephone pole. As I rested there, I felt something running down my hand, arm and onto my clothes. I heard a voice saying several times, "I love you!"
I looked up above my hand and saw Jesus hanging on the cross. He said, "I love you. You don't need that kind of love. I give you this gift of love, to give to others, as I have given to you." As I looked up into His face, I remember how blue His eyes were, and how much He loved me. I looked down at myself and saw His blood all over me, setting me free from a sinful life.
That day, I responded to Him, accepting His love and He became my whole life. Since then, I have had no other affairs, adultery or fornication. I was delivered from all types of sexual sins and I asked Jesus to enable me to live free of them and he has -- for 18 years so far.
Going through Restoration Prayer Ministry even restored my true identity; my very nature has been changed. Before I could act like I was heterosexual but the attractions were still there. Now I naturally back away from homosexuality because it seems so unnatural for me now.
Jesus took the attraction away! I am not just forcing myself to be someone that I am not. He has healed my sexual confusion and given me a new identity in Him. He has given me new desires in my heart.
Others who have received this kind of healing from Jesus through Restoration Prayer Ministry report that this healing is real and can be tested. They have looked at the same old magazines and been around old friends without reverting back to the same old attractions.
The good news is that we do have a choice. We are not born homosexual or destined by our stars to be homosexual. We always have a choice to invite the Spirit of Truth to touch our sexual confusion and restore our true identity in Him. Jesus loves us all alike and came to conform us all to His image.
If you are looking for answers in astrology like I was, your charts may convince you that there is no hope of ever being free. They may tell you that it is not only a lifetime thing but a next lifetime thing too! Reincarnation is a lie from Satan! The truth is that Jesus came so that we could know Him and enter into an eternal personal relationship with Him. He can go back in time and heal every wound and restore us to our true identity and destiny in life.
Jesus will heal you and restore your life in every aspect.
