When I made a major commitment to
God I told Him that I would serve Him no matter
what that might entail, and my only request was for Him to protect and guard my
little children from the Evil One.
Truly my greatest desire is to follow the
Lord Jesus Christ wherever He
leads me and my Mission is to love and serve Almighty God with all my heart,
soul, mind, and strength; and to love my neighbor as my self.
The following excerpt from my Testimony shows why I Am so devoted to God
the Holy Father and His beloved Son.
Excerpt from Walking With
The Enemy: A Testimony by C. Read:
"You may think I Am being very presumptuous for claiming that God actually
speaks through me; and I admit that I can understand why it could disturb some
people, but I know what God has spoken to me; and I will do whatever He says,
whether anyone agrees with me or not.
My allegiance is to
Almighty God, and Him alone. If others want to stand with me, that is wonderful!
If not, then I will stand alone. But in essence, I will never be alone since my
Lord is always with me.
I want to share a very
personal journal entry so perhaps you can understand why I Am so committed to
the Lord God, and why I have such a
strong desire to please Him in all that I say and do.
Wednesday 12 May 1993
I found out from
Steven (Cindy’s ex-husband) yesterday that he got a court date. I Am so
excited at the thought of having the opportunity to stand before people and
speak Your word.
I know that last time
when the Bible study group was called before that court room
I was a nervous wreck. I bet Liz must have been going nuts inside hoping that I
would contain myself. She seemed so calm and cool, along with Cindy.
I really had a very
hard time that day. That was the first time I had ever snapped at Liz or Cindy,
and I ran out of the room crying. They came back to my room to comfort me, and
they were able to calm me down.
But I know the reason
I was so crazy was because I knew in my heart that there were many things in my
life that I would be so ashamed of if I had to speak of them in public.
Lord, those same things are in my
past, and You have cleansed me of the unrighteousness that I was walking in, and
now I can speak without being ashamed before You.
I still feel a sense
of shame at what I allowed myself to be a partaker of, and I have reaped what I
have sown, but I see the Truth now; where before, I was "Walking With The Enemy"
I praise You, and I
Am ever thankful to You for coming down by Your mighty power to show the Truth.
And You did it during Bible study on the night of 28 February 1993.
That date is a Day I
will never ever forget! You released the chains that bound me! You gave sight to
my eyes! You unstopped my ears! You released the power that Darkness had over
Praise the Mighty
Name of my Lord and my Savior Jesus
Christ the Anointed One!!!
And now I can walk
around with an ability, because of You, to see exactly what is in front of me. I
will take each day as it comes, and not be concerned about what is up ahead,
because I trust You completely! You are a Light unto my path!
Thank You for the
understanding that You have given me, and the wisdom to apply what I know about
I Am still trying to
learn how to be quick to listen and slow to speak. I truly want to guard what
comes out of my mouth.
I now understand the
verse that says “Don’t cast your pearls before swine because they will trample
them under their feet and turn around and tear you to pieces.” [ii]
Praise God You are able to heal my wounds. They most certainly did exactly what
You said in Your word that they would do, but the thing I was mistaken about
was, I thought they served You. I thought they loved You. I thought they loved
But You shed Your
glorious Light on the situation because of Your love for me, and the whole
world. I say the world, because I do realize the calling You have placed on my
life from birth.
And Father God, I
accept that calling with no reservations whatsoever. I will forsake all to
follow You and You alone.
I know there are
many people that will not understand. There are... people that will say bad
things about me. There are many people that will hate me, and lie about me, and
even give false testimony about me.
But you know what?
Even if they try to imprison me for doing nothing wrong, I will count it a joy
to suffer shame and disgrace for the Mighty name of Jesus my
I fully accept the Commission that You have called me to.
Signed on this Day of 12 May 1993.[iii]
A servant of the Most High God,
and the Jesus who came and died for me, that I might have Life
forever with the Father, Creator of all things! Amen!
My Commission Expires 7 November 2017

Courtroom: Kim’s real
mother took Bill and Liz to court to force them to divulge where her
daughter was, who was a minor at the time. All the members of the Bible
Study Group were ordered to come to a local court proceeding to testify as to
our knowledge of the whereabouts of Kim, who had obviously been hidden out.
Everyone in the Bible Study group
showed up except for Evelyn; and Kim wasn’t there of course. Cindy’s
ex-husband, Steven was there along with his wife, Lynn. Liz had also
prepared me beforehand by giving me a note to read.
It said: “I refuse to answer on
the grounds that I may incriminate myself.” She told me to repeat that
statement when I was questioned, but for some unknown reason, no one from
the group had to testify. (Pg 144)
Matthew 7:6 “Give not that
which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest
they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.” This a
verse that came up a lot when I first started coming to the Bible study
group, and Liz would always try to help me understand passages from the
Bible that were hard to comprehend. Of course, she didn’t mention that this
particular passage was actually referring to her, and that she was seeking
to destroy my life. However, if I had known how to truly discern the Voice
of God I would have turned around and never gone back to another one of
their Bible study meetings. (Pg 145)
12 May 1993,
important date for me. It is the Day the Lord commissioned me to be His
servant, of which I consider the greatest of honors.
Interestingly, the 12th
Day of May is
also a very significant day for the British Royal Family. I have since
discovered that 12 May 1937 was the Coronation date of King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain. (Pg 144-146)
