Welcome to the “i am JOSIAH” Project Campaign

Never underestimate the broken and discarded because they can become the fiercest warriors

Growing up can be difficult, even more so when facing life with disabilities. Josiah grew up in a typical hardworking family in a small town. He was hearing impaired with 95% hearing loss until he had surgery in his second year of high school in 1982. He met constant bullying until he no longer wished to live. His prayer was, "God take me!". 

At 32, moved to Nashville. An acquaintance of his who worked for WSM radio became his golden ticket to country royalty at places like the Grand Ole Opry and the Ryman, TV tapings, record label parties, and sports events. He hit the country party scene like a whirlwind until an emergency phone call from his mother and a comment from his workaholic boss. Change was coming.

Soon after, Josiah moved to Orlando, FL. Josiah's wild party lifestyle wasn't tempered by the move but enhanced by it. Then, the storm of a lifetime came to him, beginning with the theft of his identity over $20k (a felony that could have meant prison). His home was foreclosed, and he was left homeless and hungry. In ten years, he moved eight times. His life had spiraled out of control; anger and hate were all that was left. His childhood prayer resurfaced: "God take me, I surrender, I am done". He had no idea how close his prayers were to being answered. Those words could have been his last; he fell asleep while driving, and his car went off the road. The miracle that happened during that event changed Josiah's life. God saved his life. He was no longer the same, from abused and broken to a new life and restored—purpose from the pain.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS = RESOURCES


1.) QUESTION

God


ANSWER

The God from the Holy Bible, The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jesus Christ is our LORD and SAVIOR. 



2.) QUESTION

Let me ask you a question, a crucial question. If you should die today, are you 100% certain that you are going to Heaven?  

If you should die today and stand before God, and He asked you why He should let you into His Heaven, what would you say?


ANSWER

Did you know you can be 100% certain you will go to Heaven? You CAN know, and here is how. In 1 John 5:13, the Bible says, "I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life."


In Romans 3:10, the Bible says, "There is no one righteous, not even one." Verse 23 says, "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." That means I'm a sinner, and that means you are a sinner, too. Most people do not realize the seriousness of sin. God is holy, and sin separates a sinner from God.

This verse shows how serious it is! In Romans 5:12 the Bible says, "Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all have sinned." The word "death" doesn't mean dying and going to the grave; it means separation from God. Until our sins are forgiven, we are separated from God on this earth, and we will be separated from God forever and ever in a place called . This is the punishment for our sin.


But the story doesn't end here! In Romans 6:23, the Bible says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." The words "eternal life" mean more than living forever; they mean to live forever in Heaven.


Notice that being saved is a gift—it's absolutely free! You can't buy it, work for it, or be good enough. It is free! It would be as if a friend went to the store and purchased you a present. They paid for, wrapped, put a bow on it, and brought it to you. They did everything for you. All you have to do is receive it. 


That is what Jesus did! He left His home in Heaven, came to earth, died on the cross, shed His blood, and paid for your sins. He did everything for you. All you have to do is receive it. Romans 5:8 says He did this for us while we were still sinners. 


Most people think they have to stop doing everything bad before God will save them. But God loves us as sinners, and Jesus died for us. When Jesus died for you, He made it possible for you to have forgiveness of sins and eternal life with God. However, just because Jesus died for you does not automatically save you. 


The following are Yes or No answers. You must ask Jesus to forgive your sins.


1.) Now, do you admit that you are a sinner?


2.) Do you understand that sin separates you from God?


3.) Do you believe Jesus died on the cross for you?


4.) Would you like to be forgiven of all your sins and know 100% you are going to Heaven? 


If YES, then this is what you need to do.

In Romans 10:9-13 the Bible tells us that if you call upon the name of the Lord, you will be saved. Then, according to the Bible, if you ask Jesus into your heart right now, He will save you forever! Wouldn't you like to do this? If you trust Jesus to take you to Heaven when you die, pray this prayer.


"Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins, and God raised You from the dead. Forgive me of all my sins. Come into my heart today. Give me a home in Heaven when I die. Help me to obey You. I mean this prayer with all my heart!"


Romans 10:13 says, "For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved." 


According to the Bible, if you have done this, you are saved—and if you were to die today, you would go to Heaven!  


I also encourage you to: 1) Read the Bible to grow in your faith—maybe start with the first four books of the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. To help you to learn more about the Bible, I suggest you also go to www.BibleHub.com. 2) Pray to God—He cares for you. Jesus gives an example of how to pray in Matthew 6:9-13. 3) Find a Bible-based church—one that not only teaches the Bible but will help you to grow in your faith. 4) Be baptized (Matthew 28:19-20)




3.) QUESTION

Prayer


ANSWER

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. Matthew 6:9-13 (KJ V)



4.) QUESTION

Who is the Shepard?


ANSWER

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23




5.) QUESTION

WHEN YOU HEAR THAT VOICE Sounds Good ~ Not Sure ? Ask !!! Test it!!! 


ANSWER

Do you confess that Jesus is the Messiah who came in the flesh from God? "By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world."

1 John 4:2-3 




6.) QUESTION

How to Bind and Cast Out Unholy, Unclean Spirits that are not of God.  


ANSWER

Unholy, Unclean Spirits Bind and Cast-Out in Jesus' name, Amen.
