Drugs and Needles
My name is Michael klein
and this is my testimony of how the Lord Jesus actually saved me .
At the age of 12 I started smoking cigarettes .It was to alleviate boredom and I thought it was cool.Smoking with my friends.
By the age of 14 I was mixing with the wrong peers.I started smoking marijuana with my friends as a recreational drug .On weekends I was getting smashed on marijuana . I felt the drug was allowing me to escape from reality and all my problems that were around me at that age ? You see I loved the sense that i could smoke dope and I could escape reality .It would dampen the pressures or the troubles I had at those times. This pattern increased and i would get stoned all hours of the day , 24/7. All this time my mum was praying for me !
The guy I scored these drugs from introduced harder drugs at this point so I started using powders ( speed)
again as a recreational outlet on weekends and as the pressure of life started to come I started to use more and more .
One day this guy i used to score from offered to inject me and I agreed. My thinking at the time was these drugs take a while to work so if I inject it was been an instant hit.I didn't want to wait for the affects.I wanted it NOW !
This changed the course of my life I started injecting myself daily. The needle became my "friend", my "comfort". BUt Soon I was always chasing that initial first time HIT experience, but it failed to meet the expectation and I always tried to hit that note again and again.I didn't realise at the time that I was slipping further and further into an unknown darkness that had control over me and my thinking and my way of life.
To go to work , instead of leaving home with just my car keys and lunch I would now leave home with my spoon and drugs and needles and I would inject in my car at work and anywhere I felt I had the need .
I was now addicted to the needle and started using every day .
My addiction got that bad I would now go to bed with a clean spoon and a clean glass of water beside my bed , all ready prepared, so in the morning when I woke up I could have that needle sticking out of my arm before I got out of bed . This was all I was thinking about . Eventually I lost my Job .
I started working for myself. A big Idea and well thought out plan I was growing marijuana commercially and made some huge profits . This made me mega money . I was walking around with 50 K gold around my neck ,would always have thousands of dollars cash in my wallet .I had fast cars and you name it..
Satan was giving me all the world desires in my hand ,all right there, but my soul was in chains.
I was building the most sophisticated grow rooms in the world !!! No one could imagine how sophisticated these would be .
They were fully remote automated . I use to bury shipping containers deep underground and I use to push remote buttons which use to open false walls . There was even an elevator which took you down beneath the ground to the grow rooms.
There were thousands upon thousands watts of lighting where used to grow marijuana in speed time.
What nature would grow in 7 to 9 months ,I was growing in 7 weeks .
From there I was affiliated with a major notorious biking gang and underworld . The gang was cooking me pure amphetamines which I was shipping up the coast.And the money kept rolling in.
While this was all happening in my life , I was surrounded by a lot of my friends who where overdosing and dying from drugs. My drug associates where being gunned down and murdered.
I tell you Satan had a plan for my life.
I had given him legal ground. I didn't have GOD in my life. I didn't really know who GOD was. I had heard it but didn't really believe it. Satan came to steal, to kill and to destroy my life .
I was going to end up dead or in jail for a very long time but jesus had other plans for my life .
My mother could see what was happening to me .
She was always praying to GOD for me.
GOD was listening
I remember this Guy once. He was sitting reading a book. I saw it was a bible. He did it often and I asked him some questions. I didn't realize till later that with those questions and answers GODS words were ministering to me through this guy. THis became an important piece in my turning to Jesus because it made me think more about things ,my life, what I was doing, my conscience. Gods words were making me think deeper.
I felt change within me. Something was stirring ! ( The Holy Spirit was working on Michael)
I asked Jesus to come into my life.
Changes started to happen. I prayed and prayed. I started reading the bible for myself.
Then I fully surrendered to the LORD !!
Jesus came and gave me life for everything of Satan is death.
He healed me totally of all my addictions with no withdrawals and closed the doors to the drug world and the people that people that were around me,my peers.
GOD opened new doors to my life. GOD is true to His words.
Jesus promises that He will not reject anyone who comes to Him.
“All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to
Me I will by no means cast out.” (John 6:37)
As I prayed often, I was filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in Tongues. Some time after I was baptised Born again. I was approximately 30 years old when i was saved.
I lost all my friends , and that's for the best. No one ever tried to get me , as you would imagine it might happen when you go against a bikie gang and follow Christ . I believe GOD helped me there too. He made a way for me .
Now I am blessed to have the LORD in my life. He has done amazing things for me. So many miracles He has blessed me with . Even in times of bad health it is HE that has pulled me through. I go to church regularly and read the bible .
As I sit with Micheal ,chatting casually about his testimony for the book and this website, he is relaxed and finds comfort talking about his past and where he is now .This person in front of me ( Michael) is not the person this testimony is painting. He has made a huge turn around in his life thanks to Jesus. I cannot fathom this Michael making sophisticated Grow rooms and the life he once had. I have had the pleasure to know him over the past year or so through church worship and he has had some incredible miraculous events things thanks be to GOD.
Here is one I would like to share with you .
