Only the Holy -- Three Shocking Testimonies

The apostle Paul wrote to the Hebrews, "Without holiness no one shall see God." Heb 12:14.  And he said we must pursue this holiness, since it is essential in order to see God.  This is something we need to be reminded of once again.

I'd like to share three shocking testimonies with you from three separate Christians.  All of them had repented of their sins and prayed to ask Jesus into their lives.  But none of them were ready to meet the Lord.

Famous Pastor, with Healing and Miracle Ministry, Banned from Heaven

Brother John Mulinde
A Ugandan pastor from Kampala, named John Mulinde, had a proven ministry marked by healing and miracles.  He had been serving the Lord for many years and was quite famous.  The Lord kept telling him to repent, but he couldn't think of anything in his life he had not already repented for.  Then the Lord visited him and revealed his invisible sins.  The Lord told him that if He were to come back at that time for His people, He would not take brother Mulinde!

The Lord told him, "My servants...have traded their souls for worldly things."  He told him that the great day of the Lord is at hand, it hastens, and all the thoughts of men's hearts will be revealed in that day. The Lord revealed to him sins of his heart that he didn't even realize were there!

Brother Mulinde says, "Beloved, the time is short. He who comes is coming soon. He is calling us to Himself. I remember He said to me, 'That Day is not a day of joy'—even to Him. He said, 'My heart is torn apart when I think of My people who will be pulled away on that Day. That’s why I’m crying out, "Return to me."'"

Brother Mulinde continues, "[The Lord] said, 'I’m sending you. Don’t judge My people. Don’t condemn them. Tell them I’m not condemning them. I call them to return to Me. Flee from the wrath that’s coming on the Day of the Lord. Flee from the powers of darkness that are seeking to take you captive. Flee from your own self, your own carnal nature. Flee. There’s refuge in the name of the Lord. The name of the Lord is a strong tower. The righteous run into it and they’re safe.'” 

I urge you to watch his entire video testimony (see here).

Dedicated Pastor and Foster Father Unacceptable to the Lord

Brother Howard Pittman
Howard Pittman was raised as a Christian, who heard the Bible daily at home.  He was ordained as a pastor and trained in seminary.  He served 20 years in law enforcement while pastoring.  He and wife have 3 children and foster parented 32 others between ages 18 mos and 18 years! He died on Aug 3, 1979, and stood at the gates of heaven, pleading for his life.

God have him a message in an audible voice.  Instead of sweet and lovely, it was thunderous and had a tone of wrath.  It knocked him on his face and sapped every bit of strength from him.  The Lord said: “Your faith is dead.  Your works are in vain.  The life that you live and offer to me as a life of Christian service I rejected that as an abomination in the Pharisee.  What made you think that I would take that from a Laodicean-type Christian?  In fact, untold millions are living the same life that you lived, and they stand in danger of My everlasting wrath.”

A Laodicean Christian is lukewarm and serves God with his lips but not his heart. This is the hypocritical Christian.

Howard was shocked to hear this.  He was sure God had him mixed up with someone else.  He was a preacher and teacher.  He had lived a life of service and devotion to God.  But the Lord showed him that it was true.

Howard did not do his good works for the Lord.  He did them for a false god.  Howard called Jesus Lord every day, but Jesus told him, “You didn’t mean it.”  Lord means ruler of life.  Whoever you obey is your Lord.

Jesus identified his god: "The loveliest god you’ll ever know – SELF."  Self ruled Howard’s life.  He fell on his face.  The scales fell from his eyes.  He realized he was pleading for the wrong life.  He was pleading for his earthly life instead of his eternal life.  He says now nothing else matters but “My father and his will.”

I urge you to listen to his testimony (see here).

A Christian Musician Who Realized She Had Idols
A musician named CJ, had prayed to ask the Lord into her life, but one day she actually saw the Lord appear to her, and that's when she found out she had idols.  The Lord would not accept her unless she gave up all her idols.  He said that if she planned on giving Him 99%, she may as well forget about following Him.  He would accept nothing less than 100%.  She gave Him everything, was baptized with the Holy Spirit and fire, and experienced the unspeakable joy that comes from truly knowing Him.

I urge you to listen to her powerful testimony (see here).

Putting it All Together
All of these people thought they were saved. They all considered themselves Christians.  They all confessed Jesus as Lord.  They were all sincere in seeking God.  And none of them had a clue that they were unacceptable to Him.  They all had invisible sins that they were unaware of, but which God hated.  And if they had not truly and completely repented, they would have ended up in hell.  Thankfully for them, they did repent and now they have a message for us to hear.

The Lord gave all of them a message of repentance, holiness, and the need to be ready for His soon return.  They all warn of the coming judgment that will shake everything that can be shaken.  The Day of the Lord is at hand and we need to get ready people.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"

  1. Hello. I would like to contact the lady, CJ. I would like to ask her, what God said about dressing At youtube, next to the video on Pastor Mulinde, I saw a video called "A Warning from God to all Women" saying that women wearing trousers, makeup, rings, things in their hear will not enter heaven. If this truly is from God, is needs to be spread. So I'd like to know if God told her anything about these things.

  2. Dear Muriel, this is a great topic for another blog. I understand your desire to contact CJ, but let me encourage you to contact the Lord, read His Word and ask Him about what He expects. Here's some passages to get you started: I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly...Your adornment must not be merely external--braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart. It’s fashionable for the women of the world in general to dress like whores. The women of God must not be worldly. We are supposed to keep ourselves unstained by the world. Friendship with the world is hostility toward God. And do not be conformed to this world. The Lord is after every spirit of vanity, conceit, pride, arrogance, and seductiveness. This much is true. God bless you!(1Pe 3:1-6)(1Ti 2:9-11)(1Co 11:3-10)(Isa 3:16-24)Pro 7:9-11)(1Jo 2:15-16)(Rom 12:2)(Jam 4:4-6)Jam 1:27)(Mat 5:13)(1Co 4:11)(Act 20:33)(Jam 2:2-4)(Rev 3:18)(Jud 1:22-23). Please let us know what the Lord speaks to you.

  4. I wonder why CJ's testimony on YOUTUBE is not open to all members of the public, is this not unusual?

  5. Dear Holy User, I have now restored the section about CJ with a new link to a different video of her testimony in an interview on Watchman's Cry radio. It's in 5 parts. Thanks.

  7. Dear Ceya Hill, that is an honest, legitimate question. I've prayed for you, and I do not have a specific answer for you at this time. I encourage you to seek the Lord, and He will show you what to do. Have you seen my blog on the 7 revelations about godly attire? It's at http://eternal-destinations.blogspot.com/2013/05/godly-attire-and-adornment-seven-divine.html. Grace and peace, Len

  8. Brother Len,
    I discovered your blog two days ago and I have been unable to stop reading since then. God bless you and your spouse for your dedication. These messages are crucial. Please do you have any testimony that mentions Muslims? Than you so much. As for me I am convicted and will get rid of my trousers and slacks and buy long skirts. Please pray that I stop being afraid to share the gospel with people around me. Thank you.

    1. Sister Farafina, praise the Lord that you are being ministered to by these testimonies. I am glad to hear you are making those changes, and will pray for you for boldness to share the gospel. Yes, there are numerous testimonies on our home page that address Muslims. See the home page and check out: 1) Rachael Mushala's Testimony, 2) Vision of Hell by Emmanuel Agyarko in which he saw Muammar Gaddafi in hell. When you view my blog about him, click on the link to read his entire vision. 3) Linda Ngaujah Revelation of Heaven and Hell in which she saw Muammar Gaddafi in hell. 4) Pastor Choi Bo Ra, a female South Korean Pastor saw Prophet Muhammad suffering in the hell. http://youtu.be/gL-OI1ZnkA4; 5) Also in Linda Ngaujah's testimony as I recorded in the blog listed above, the Lord spoke to her sister Finda and said, And the Lord said, "Every other book that is not the Holy Bible, and specifically the Koran, is from hell. Anybody who reads the Koran or lives after the pattern of that book is doomed for hell. As they die -- no judgment -- straight to hell. You must warn the Muslims that Jesus is the only Way to His Father's kingdom." The Lord bless you!

  9. I thank God for opportunities He grants to us in these last days, so that men can fully repent and accept Jesus as our only Lord and Saviour. I repented and asked God several times whether he forgave me for all my sins, cause at times I just feel that maybe God did not forgave me totally, due to the things I did. My prayer is that God deal with me and speak to me, and if there is anything else that I perhaps do not know that might keep me from seeing Him soon, be revealed unto me so that I can get myself ready for the rapture. I asked that you pray with me for I have such a fear of the dark and many at times I would rather want to pray if someone is with me especially at night. I want God to take that fear away so that I can expect Him to talk to me whenever He feels the time is right.
    I want to encourage you to keep on doing God’s work, I also cannot stop reading since I discovered this blog 2 days ago.
    God Bless!

    1. Dear sister Rachelle, thank you for reading and commenting. A broken and contrite heart the Lord will not despise. Remember King David (Ps 51). Also see 1 Jn 1:7-9. If you have sincerely repented and asked forgiveness, and you have accepted the atonement of Jesus Christ, you are forgiven. Now go and sin no more and warn others! I pray the Lord breaks the chains of darkness off your life in Jesus Name and by the power of the Spirit right now. I pray that you will receive his forgiveness completely without any guilt, shame, or condemnation (see Rom 8:1-2). Our God is full of mercy. Compassion and forgiveness belong to Him, therefore He is feared. I encourage you to pray for the baptism with the Holy Spirit, as well as the baptism with holy fire, as I have explained in my blogs about those topics at http://spiritofthelordgod.blogspot.com/. Then I recommend you kneel before the Lord, lift your hands to Him, and shout "Holy Fire!" several times. Earnestly and strongly renounce every spirit of fear and break your ties with them. With the same strong voice and authority, In Jesus' name, bind every spirit of fear, and command them to leave you now, and return to the pit from whence they came and never return to you again. They will have no choice but to flee from you. 2 Tim 1:7. Let us know when you receive your blessings! The Lord bless!

  10. I'm so happy to discover your blog. It’s interesting seeing a white from the USA doing this. I appreciate the fact that you have taken it upon yourself to republish the revelations God has given his church. I like your response to Muriel who wished to reach CJ concerning her testimony. Meanwhile, I would like to emphasis some benefit of being able to relate with these people. There is a young brother in Nigeria who has been privileged to encounter Jesus face to face, Emmanuel Samson Jude. He has a ministry through which he shares on a daily basis more about his revelation. This is really effective since what is being revealed to these people is not common in our churches today. One doesn’t come across these messages cheaply on TBN and other media. It's on SID Roth that we have been able to experience a little. I wish these people would stand to protect and defend the revelations God gave them. Sister Claire Audoun has been helpful in spreading her warning to women. Holiness Revival Movement has done a lot too. It's good if these people would go a step further and run with the vision. It works to continue to share them through the media. I wish to see the impact of these revelations in the lives of the famous TV evangelists, gospel musicians etc. If we don't do aggressive crusade with these revelations, some may say the revelation is not meant for them. I know Angelica Zabrano testimony is very popular, but I wish she would be strong and bold for the Lord to continue to share these things.
    Please, I would like you to modify your blog in order to enable people share your articles on facebook. Thanks.

About sharing these on Facebook, there is a link to the word "More" at the top of this web page, which allows you to click the arrow next to it and share via FB, Twitter, etc. Thanks for helping us expand the reach of these blogs. The Lord bless. Len

    2. PS. You mentioned "a young brother in Nigeria who has been privileged to encounter Jesus face to face, Emmanuel Samson Jude." When I said that I agree with what you said, I need to clarify that I was not agreeing about this young man. I would be very careful and test everything very carefully that he says, and test his character. Hold everything he says before the Lord and ask for confirmations. Check the Word of God. Check references who know him. This is one of the ways we ensure we are not being deceived. I only heard one thing from another person this weekend about his revelations, and I have a big check in my spirit about it. Beyond that I have no desire to listen to anything he is saying or investigate it, but I cannot receive it. So be very careful and test the spirits. Do not be deceived.

  12. Len, I have listened to multiple testimonies and am so thankful to have had the chance to be warned! I wanted to ask you about the clothing, Angelica Zambrano, Mary K Baxter, Bill Wiese, Pastor Mulinde etc none of them mention anything about women wearing jeans or make up etc I was wondering what you thought about this and why only some people have had this revelation? I ask this with a sincere heart and not of contention. I really want to know the truth. When I read the scriptures I don't get a clear picture of what we are not supposed to wear. I desperately want to follow Jesus with my whole heart and I also want to tell others the truth! Blessings to you all in Jesus name

    1. Dear Krystal, the Lord uses the many-faceted members of the Body of Christ and does not give all knowledge to any one person. No single individual or Church possesses all Truth. So even the people that have received divine revelations must be very careful to observe all the Lord commanded us to do, and listen to what He is saying through other valid divine revelations to the Church.

      I can give you some excellent articles to read that will help to answer your questions. In summary, I believe the Lord hates anything artificial on our bodies for the purpose of fashion, such as jewelry, makeup, tattoos, body piercings, gold teeth, perms, hair attachments, dyeing the hair, tanning creams, etc. He hates people dressing naked with immodest clothing, including shorts and mini skirts and low-cut, sheer, or sleeveless blouses. He also hates cross dressing, including women wearing pants.

      Here are the articles to check out:

  13. Thank you for your quick response and for taking the time to help me. I do have tattoos from years ago that I now regret but I have repented. I hope that means I am forgiven. I did know better when I got them but my heart was not where it is now, willing to surrender and fully obey. I used to believe that once saved always. But now I realize that although people may mean well, they can be wrong and misguide us. Here in America hardly any of our pastors teach these things I've been learning. Our church is close to a college and lots of young girls come with short skirts and skin tight jeans or tights. My heart is grieved for them but if I were to say anything people would say that I am being judgmental and that Jesus loves us all and accepts us as we are. But I am willing to tell the truth. I am terrified of hell and don't want anyone to perish! God has delivered me from a life of adultery and many other sins, I now understand the scripture that says "He who has forgiven much, loves much." It is true my life. Thank you again.

    1. Krystal, you're welcome. Regarding the forgiveness of sin, please remember the Scriptures say that forgiveness is complete when we repent (Mk 3:28; 1 Jn 1:9). There may be strongholds and curses you need to break though. You should pray to break any curses from tattoos and other occult behavior, and renounce those demons associated with them. You can easily find some good info on this to help you.

      I think it's wonderful that you've repented. Praise God for what He's done in your life, and the testimony He has given you. I encourage you to do as you said and tell others the truth. They will most likely never find out from their pastor, as you said.

      The Lord bless you!
