Leader of Heavy Metal Band Offered His Sold to the Devil. Then God Stepped in (VIDEO TESTIMONY)

As the leader of a heavy metal band, Kirk Martin loved the adulation, the awe of being worshiped by his fans. He projected a wild, angry image on stage – his anger perhaps fueled from being victimised sexually as a child.

In an attempt to take his music career even further, Martin offered his soul to the devil. Within days, a record company contacted him to offer him a contract.

However, God stepped in miraculously, and Martin eventually never signed the contract. Learn about his amazing story in the video below.

Testimony of Ex-MediaCorp Celebrity Jacelyn Tay 郑秀珍

Jacelyn Tay was an unbeliever when she decided to challenge a pastor from Kampong Kapor Methodist Church on his Christian beliefs.

The pastor was the father of a chiropractor whom she had been receiving treatment from, who welcomed her to speak to his father after Sunday church services.

So, Tay attended the church service on 19 February 2006, sitting at back of the church, armed with a defiant attitude and looking forward for the service to end so that she could question the pastor.

She was, however, casually flipping through a bible that had been placed on the pew in front of her, when she chanced upon the twelfth chapter of the book of Revelation.

What she read shocked her, as it fitted to a tee recurring vivid dreams she had had three years earlier.

Eventually, instead of challenging the pastor on his beliefs, she ended up walking towards the altar to commit her life to Jesus Christ.

Testimony of a Former Temple Medium and Drug Abuser (In Hokkien/Mandarin)

This audio-only testimony given by a former temple medium cum drug abuser was recorded sometime during the 90s, and in it, this brother-in-Christ shares how he got saved, of his marvellous transformation, and his miraculous healing from a painful stomach ailment.

He also explains, in some detail, the business of being a temple medium — of how the demons enter and leave the medium’s body as they please (even at the most importune time for the medium), and of how the medium does not feel any pain when the demons are controlling him to mutilate his own body.

Kindly take note that at certain parts of the testimony, the volume levels may be soft, so please adjust the audio volume accordingly.

If you enjoyed listening to this tesimony, you might also wish to listen to the testimony of another ex-medium, Vincent Liow (who was a trance medium for the Monkey God for over 10 years), which can be accessed by clicking HERE.

If God is Good, Why Do Some Christians Suffer from Terminal Cancer — The True Testimony of the Late Singaporean Aesthetics Doctor, Dr Richard Teo Keng Seng

God is good. But some might scoff, “If God is good, why do some Christians suffer from terminal cancer?”

There are no easy answers to this question, and if you are a believer who does suffer from terminal cancer, you might take some comfort from the true story of the late Dr Richard Teo Keng Seng.

Dr Teo had everything that most Singaporeans could aspire to by the time he was in his 30s — wealth measured in millions of dollars, a thriving aesthetics practice, and sports cars, including a Ferrari 430.

“I’m a typical product of today’s society,” said Dr Teo in a speech in November 2011.

“From young, I’ve always been under the influence and impression that to be happy is to be successful. And to be successful, is to be wealthy. So I led my life according to this motto.”

Despite being born into a poor family, Dr Teo excelled in his studies and was accepted in medical school.

In medical school, he chose the quick way to big bucks — by switching from opthalmology to aesthetics.

The move paid handsomely for him, and in the first year, his cosmetic surgery clinic ‘was raking in millions’.

Dr Teo’s newly-made wealth opened the door to high-society life. He loved dinning at Michelin-rated restaurants and rubbing shoulders with celebrities.

Dr Teo also loved life in the fast lane and, at the pinnacle of his life, owned sports cars like the Honda S2000, Subaru WRX, Nissan GTR and a Ferrari 430

On how he would spend his weekends, Dr Teo said, “Typically, I’d have car club gatherings. I’d take out my track car and go up to Sepang in Malaysia for car racing. It was my life.”

Dr Teo had no time for God although he had been baptised many years earlier. When his friends experienced a personal revival, they advised Dr Teo to return to church with them, but their advice fell on stony ground.

“In my arrogance, I told them, “You know what? You go tell your pastor to change his sermon to 2pm and I will consider coming to church,” said Dr Teo.

In his arrogance, Dr Teo also uttered the following statement to his friends, “If God really wanted me to come back to church, He will give me a sign.”

It was a statement which he later said he would live to rue, because by the end of 3 weeks, he would — without first being diagnosed with terminal lung cancer — find himself back in church.

Said Dr Teo, “My whole world just turned upside down. I couldn’t accept it. I have a hundred relatives on both sides — my mom’s and my dad’s — and not a single one has cancer. To my mind, I have good genes, I’m not supposed to be having this! Some of my relatives are heavy chain smokers. Why am I having lung cancer? I was in denial.”

Dr Teo also fell into deep depression. He searched for answers. There weren’t any… until he heard an “inner voice”.

Said Dr Teo, “There I was lying on the operating table, staring blankly at the ceiling in a cold, quiet operating theatre. Suddenly, I heard an inner voice; it was not coming from the outside; it was inside. This small inner voice was one that I had never felt before. And it said very specifically: “This has to happen to you, at your prime, because it’s the only way you can understand.””

“I said, “Woah, where did that come from?” You know, when you speak to yourself, you’d say [something like] ‘what time should I leave this place?’ [or] ‘where shall I have dinner after this?’. You’d speak from a first person point of view…whereas the voice that came spoke as a third party. It said, “This has to happen to YOU, at YOUR prime, because this is the only way YOU can understand.” At that time, my emotions just overflowed and I broke down and cried alone there.”

Dr Teo did later understand why the ‘small inner voice’ had told him that this was the ‘only way’ he could be made to understand. Explained Dr Teo, “I was just so full of myself that there was no other way I could have turned back to God.”

God continued speaking to him.

Said Dr Teo, “I was in bed one afternoon, struggling and asking God, “Why? Why do I have to go through this suffering? Why do I have to endure this hardship, this struggle? Why me?”

“As I fell asleep, in my dreamy state, a vision came and said ‘Hebrews 12:7-8’.”

“Now, mind you, at this time, I had not read the bible [and] had no clue what’s Hebrews. I don’t even know how many chapters there are. Totally clueless.”

“But it (the vision) said ‘Hebrews 12:7-8’, very specifically.”

“I didn’t think too much of it [and] continued sleeping. After I woke up, and I said [to myself], “What’s there to lose? I’d check it out.” Danny (Dr Teo’s close friend, who had previously advised him to return to church) had bought me a bible; it’s still quite new… So I flipped to the Old Testament. Hebrews to me sounds like something ancient, so it should be in the Old Testament right? So I flipped through the Old Testament. No Hebrews there. I was so disappointed.”

“Then I said, “Maybe [it’s in the] New Testament; let’s have a look!”. WOW — New Testament; there’s Hebrew’s!! [And turning to] Hebrews 12:7-8, it said, “Endure hardship as discipline as God is treating you as His children.””

“I said, “WAH!! Where did that come from?” I was getting goose pimples all over my body. I said, “This can’t be, right?” I mean, what’s the chance of somebody who has never read the bible to have a vision of a chapter [and] a specific verse that answers my question directly?”

“So at that point, I was sold [and] said [to God], “YOU WIN! YOU WIN!!””

“From that day onwards, I started believing in my God. And the last time I heard that inner voice was [at] the end of April. And that inner voice — same thing, in the afternoon, as I was sleeping. In a dreamy state, I just heard Him say, “Help others in hardship.””

“It was more like a command, rather than a statement. And that’s when I embarked on this journey [of] helping others in hardship.”

Dr Teo obeyed the command up to the day of his death.  He reached out to numerous individuals, including single mothers, insurance agents, medical students, cancer patients and church members.

Mrs Teo, Dr Teo’s wife, told The New Paper, “He wanted to inspire those facing hardships, that life has more to offer than to be filled with hatred and emptiness”.

Dr Teo was adamant in getting his message across even as he lay sick and dying. According to Mrs Teo, a day before her husband died, his laptop was filled with new sets of photos to be shown to his audience. He had also been working on a new speech.

Dr Teo’s inspiring testimony of God’s dealing with him can be watched in the Youtube link below.

Dragged Into Hell by a Demon: The Near-Death Experience of Churchgoer and Ex U.S. Marine Shawn Weed, Who Warns Lukewarm Christians That They Risk Ending Up in Hell Unless They Repent

Shawn Weed is a U.S. Marines veteran, and years ago, when he was still in the Marines, he was horsing around with his buddies one day, when he accidentally suffocated himself with a noose.

For 8 long minutes, Shawn’s soul left his body, and he found himself in a place which the bible calls the “outer darkness” (Matthew 8:12), alone with a very strong and grotesque, 13-feet tall demon, that grabbed Shawn by his feet, and at great speed, raced towards the fiery regions of hell.

Fortunately, the demon was stopped by an angel (who referred to himself as Michael), and after releasing Shawn from the demon’s captivity, the angel told Shawn that his “time had not yet come” and that he (Shawn) needed to go.

Immediately, Shawn’s soul was reunited with his body, but it took Shawn a good 20 minutes before he Shawn regained full recovery.

Ironically, Shawn had been a church-goer, yet his soul could have so nearly remained in hell for good. In his amazing testimony, which can be watched in the Youtube channel below, Shawn warns lukewarm, churchgoing Christians that they risk ending up in hell (just like he nearly did) unless they repented and devoted the rest of their lives to God.

Said Shawn, “I’m not a bad guy. I’ve never murdered anyone. I’ve never molested any children. I’ve never raped any women or done anything drastic that you know would cause you to be placed in hell for sure.”

“For me, I was just an average person – sure, I drank a few beers and smoked a few cigarettes [but] I wasn’t into drugs.”

“I was just an average guy. I go to church every once in a while, you know, so I didn’t really pitch myself as bad, not bad enough to end up in hell.”

“But the one thing I understand now is that there are plenty of good people in there – a lot of people that used to call themselves Christian are there and it is because they didn’t really devote their life to God. They lived one foot in and one foot out, like I did.”

“You don’t have to be a bad person to go to hell. All you have to do is be “average”, and God doesn’t call us to be average, He calls us to be holy like He is.”

“What that really means is that you don’t have to be a bible-thumping Christian, but you should devote your life to God as much as you possible can.”

“[But] if that puts me in the category of bible-thumping Christians, then so be it. I’d rather be that than being in the “middle”, because I know where being in the middle gets you – it gets you in the same place as being fully against Him gets you.”

Reflecting on Revelations 3:16 (where Jesus had said “So, because you are lukewarm–neither hot nor cold–I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”), Shawn said, “I don’t want to be that (“average”, lukewarm Christian) again.”

“I don’t want to go back to hell. I know what is there.”

Self-made Millionaire at 30; Dead at 40; In the End, His Wordly Success and Wealth Meant Nothing — The True Story of the Late Singaporean Aesthetics Doctor, Dr Richard Teo Keng Seng

Dr Richard Teo Keng Seng had everything that most Singaporeans could aspire to by the time he was in his 30s — wealth measured in millions of dollars, a thriving aesthetics practice, and sports cars, including a Ferrari 430.

“I’m a typical product of today’s society,” said Dr Teo in a speech in November 2011.

On how he would spend his weekends, Dr Teo said, “Typically, I’d have car club gatherings. I’d take out my track car and go up to Sepang in Malaysia for car racing. It was my life.”

Dr Teo’s cars became symbols of his success, but in the end, after he was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, they meant nothing to him.

“Chinese new year… I would drive my Ferrari, show off to my relatives, show off to my friends, do my rounds, and then you thought that was true joy?” reflected Dr Teo during a talk to dental students.

“In truth, what you have done is just to elicit envy, jealous and even hatred. In my death bed, I found my joy whatsoever in whatever objects I had — my Ferrari, thinking of the land I was going to buy to build my bungalow, having a successful business.”

It was towards the end of his life that Dr Teo found the meaning of true joy.

“What really brought me joy in the last ten months was interaction with people, my loved ones, friends, people who genuinely care about me, they laugh and cry with me, and they are able to identify the pain and suffering I was going through. That brought joy to me, happiness,” he said, in a speech given to an undergraduate medical class before passing away in October 2012.

What Does It Mean to Be Born Again? Chew Chor Meng and His Born Again Experience

The Lord Jesus Christ said that those who wished to inherit eternal life must be born again (John 3:3).

However, many have wondered what it means to be born again.

The born-again experience is a wonderful, supernatural experience in which a person’s nature undergoes a drastic change (in particular, old sinful habit get removed), and as a result of the change (and as the name ‘born again‘ implies), it is as if the person has become a ‘new person‘ or has become ‘reborn‘.

T.V. celebrity, Chew Chor Meng, shared about his born again experience in the short Youtube video clip below where he said that, without his realisation, he had lost the desire to swear (and to get angry easily) and to gamble (a pastime that he had enjoyed in the past).

It is important to note that the disappearance of these bad habits did not come by self-control or self-will (indeed, he was not conscious of the lost of his old bad habits until a colleague had mentioned it to him, leading to him suddenly becoming very alarmed and seeking advice from his good friend, Rayson Tan). Chew’s bad habits disappeared because of the amazing work and power of the Holy Spirit in his life, even though he was not aware of it.

Friend, are your bad habits destroying your life and the happiness of your family? To effectively get rid of your bad habits, you need to be born again, which can be obtained through prayer (that is, talking to God):

“Lord Jesus Christ, I confess to You my bad habits [name them specifically], and I wish to be born again. I now surrender my life to You, and ask that You please change me and make me new. Amen.”

If you have said this prayer aloud, and your heart has been sincere about wanting to be born again — congratulations! Like a seed that is planed into the ground, this prayer marks the beginning of new life in you, although you may not notice it immediately (but for some people, it happens a lot sooner).

Now, just as the seed that is pushed into the ground needs to be watered and nurtured for it to grow up strong and healthy, likewise, this new life that has begun in you can only thrive through regular prayer and reading of the bible.

If you need further advice on being born again, I’d love to help you, so please do not hesitate to reach out to me by clicking the ‘Leave a comment’ link beneath the title, and write “Please contact me” in the ‘Leave a Reply’ box that appears next. God bless you!
