Ascent from Darkness: How Satan's Soldier Became God's Warrior by Michael Leehan

Michael Leehan tells the story of his life, with a really short glimpse into his childhood and then recounts how he became a devoted satanist surrounded by darkness. He becomes a devoted follower of Satan through rituals and sacrifices. His life is normal in the sight of others, because he lives as everybody else before the eyes of the others: studying, having a job, spending time with his children, etc. This story is really something which makes you think about many things, like the easiness to seduce "christian" women easier than those from a bar, the loss of power of God's people and His church, and so on. 

Something that was interesting to me was that he knew who was a real child of God and when they prayed. Michael Leehan understood that the unseen world is realer than the seen. I enjoyed seeing God's hand through all the book... to see how He loves all the people even those who decide to follow the prince of lies. He knows that those people suffer the most, because Satan can't give anything good. Even if he tries to clothe himself into an angel of light he can't copy the perfect Lover and the One who gives freedom. He just comes with illusions, ties you up and when you start to think you have what you need, he makes your life miserable and accuses God, who really didn't have anything to do with it. And he finally wants to win a soul through suicide, as it was in this story...God be praised that He didn't let that happen. What I also learned was that God has given us power to be free and to be always in His presence: He hasn't given us a spirit of fear, but of POWER and of LOVE and of a SOUND MIND. How awesome! I know God can change every person, because He changed me and opened my eyes. I know I was blind and now I see... that's also what M. Leehan's story is about. There are so many things which I would tell you about the book, but I want you to read it yourselves and learn from it.

God bless him and show him more and more
how much He loves him.

God knows the desires of your heart (2)

God is really amazing. He amazes me every time. I was planning to buy myself a laptop, because I really needed one. I have a PC which I used and which was very faithful to me :) As I started my Master's Degree I needed a laptop, because I had to go to the city where I'm studying every weekend.

I know (because I've experienced it) that when you need something then you have to sow a seed first, on which God can turn water. So my sister who had to write her diploma paper and needed a laptop to work on Photoshop, Web design, etc. more than I needed it then. I really wanted to help her, so I took the opportunity to bless somebody with the exact thing I need and let God take my wish over. Thus I decided to give her some money. She bought a Dell and she wrote an awesome diploma paper and still uses it with such a blessing. She is a very talented "Photoshopist", web designer, journalist, etc. I was very happy for her and I knew God knows the time when I'll have my lap…

Jesus is coming soon, be prepared

The previous week I was so overwhelmed with my tasks at the university and the exams. I'm a "born" perfectionist and I always like to do everything the best way I can. I was so busy that I didn't have time to do my homework the way I wanted to do them and it was such a big burden. I didn't sleep enough and I was always thinking how to work everything out. I was burnt-out at the end of the week when I had to go to the courses and exams. My sisters tried to encourage me, but I was exhausted. God each and every time gave me encouragements, but I still felt the pressure of these things. As I was taking a bath, I listened to a sermon on my cell phone (I usually like to do that... hihi). Through that sermon God spoke to me and I was really touched by what the preacher said about grace. A sentence caught my attention, it was like this: "The Christians should hang on a rope upon the hell for a few minutes to see and realize what God rescued us from." He also to…
