The Truth... What is it?

Another Special Life in Christ

These testimony lives are not stories of "role models". Jesus is the role model!
These are lives wonderfully touched & changed by Jesus!

Terry Dean, a long distance trucker:

"My name is Terry Dean.  I just got done with a 5 year 9 month ministry of driving long haul [big truck] and witnessing across the country.  I will never be the same.  I am married [30 years] and have 3 kids.  In this profile I hope to bring some things to your attention and also give a little information on who I was before this great visitation and how it changed me.

After this visitation happened I wrote it down immediately and it has not changed, I had the spelling corrected but the events are still the same as from the beginning, It is important for all to know that I did not see God, I seen a vision of what God wanted me to see only, like Moses seeing the burning bush, Moses did not see God he only seen what God wanted him to see in his vision, if Moses or myself or anyone else seen God we would be dead just from the glory.

Now before I had this vision I was a timid and shy man. I believed in God but would never witness, only if the subject came up and I was totally comfortable with who I was around at the time, but I would almost never just walk up to someone that I did not know and say do you believe in God, or do you believe in the lord, or do you believe in Jesus, but after my visitation and vision happened I am a whole different man altogether. For example, I will be in a line at a Mc Donald’s restaurant and I will witness to the people in front of me or the people behind me, but 90% of the time I would strike up a conversation about God or the lord Jesus. I would witness to all I came in contact with because I felt God had place me there with them for a reason. There is no coincidence with God, there is a reason for everything that happens so I would witness and witness.

After this vision happened I went long haul with my truck driving career. I drove all over the USA witnessing day and night, sometimes just a simple do you believe in God would turn into an hour or two of talking and witnessing to people. This went on for 5 years and 6 months. I would take my home time normally after being out on the road for 4 to 6 weeks, but sometimes I would be out for 12 weeks or longer. When I would get home to my family it felt so good to be home. I would be witnessing to someone and if somebody walked up to me and the person I was talking to I would say we are talking about the lord so you can join in if you want to but we are not going to change the topic from the lord, and that person would either start talking with us about God or say ok and walk off. So I was very different from the way I was before this visitation, he gave me power and a boldness I never knew before.

And it was so cool to see and feel the holy spirit working threw me, he would say things I would never say because he knows all things, it was like I was setting in the background watching him talk threw me. It cannot be explained or expressed where a person can understand it unless you have experienced this yourself, but I would feel his power go right threw me. If you haven’t felt this you haven’t felt real life, and if you haven’t felt his love you haven’t felt real love because he is love and love comes from him only. He is the well of life and if you have not drank from this well you haven’t known life. So if you want to know real life ask of him and he will give you the living water, his Holy Spirit. All are welcome to drink for free, and this is something you cannot go to anyone for. You cannot go to a preacher a priest or a minister for, they do not have it, they can only point you to who does have it, God himself, only going threw Jesus Christ can you go to the father and ask the father in the name of his son Jesus for the Holy Spirit, and if you ask with a true heart, and Believe, he will give you the living water [Holy Spirit]. God said in his word [you will seek me and you will find me after you seek me with all your heart], so it is up to everyone to go to the throne of all power.

Its up to you, its up to me, to go to the throne of God ourselves.

Before Christ Jesus died on the cross and gave himself as the pure Lamb of God we could not go to the throne, it could only be accessed once a year by the high priest. Who would go into the holy of holies behind the vale that separated man form God, One time a year he would sprinkle blood for the sins of all the people, but after Christ Jesus gave himself one time for all the sins of the world we now we can go boldly to the throne of God ourselves. Jesus broke down the wall of sin that was a gap between God and us. So when we go to the throne and stand before God we need not be ashamed because we go to him in the name of Jesus so he sees Jesus not us, we go there in his Authority and Righteousness, not ours.

Now I can only say that God is absolutely real and alive. The closer you get to and know the lord Jesus the more you see the manifestation of him in this realm, and the better you know his calling for your life. To fear God is the beginning of wisdom.

May you let God bless you"

Jesus Came to Me in Person (in 2005):

On Jan. 2,  2005, I terry witness this, it was 3 o'clock in the morning.  I heard wind, then he appeared looking like A 2ft x 5ft tornado in the cab of the semi truck, when the spinning wind stopped it became and was the form and shape of a man.

He said with a loud voice, "I am the lord your GOD and besides me there is no other". At this point as he appeared I looked at him right in the face, His face was full of a fierce anger, his body looked like flowing energy that was tan in color, after seeing his face 1 time I did not look at his face again for the next 2 days because I felt I was not worthy to look upon his face or worthy for him to look upon my face.  The magnitude of his presents cannot be put into words.  The power of his voice was overwhelming and cannot be defined or titled or put into words.  I felt totally exposed and vulnerable at his presents.  Then he said, " I am giving you your deliverance, I am setting the captive free, I have cast out the demons again, you have your healing and your salvation so now stand". 

Then he said "I am going into my temple and tare out the furniture and tare down the walls and build a new temple and bring in heavenly furniture and we will go in and sup together" ,  then he leaned forward and put His hands together and became a stream of energy or electricity that flowed right into my chest, I could feel him enter my chest.

Then I started to feel better and almost lighter as if heavy sin was being removed, this went on for about 30 minutes or so.

At about 3:00am he came back out the way he went in, a stream of flowing energy came out of my chest and formed a man shape and stood in front of me, I kept my head down a little so i would not look at his face, then he stepped to my rite and stood there for 10-15 min, I was petrified so I sat there driving the semi truck for that 10-15 min and nothing was said, I could not stop crying or shaking.

He made it clear he was angry about the way I have been living because I was living for him part of the time not all of the time.

I was very scared and said LORD GOD you are going to give me a heart attack, and He said " I will take your heard of stone and give you a heart of flesh and with your new heart I will give you a new song", now it took him only one second for him to do and say this, he reached his hand into my chest and gave me a new heart, and pulled his hand out and said "And a new song" as 4 stars flew from his finger tips, now as soon as the stars him me a song started, the music was beautiful and not of this world, it sounded like singing angels as the song filled the cab of the truck, this was the first song of 4 songs in a roll I heard, I have played the drums for 20 years and believe you me the timing and notes were not of this world, very very lovely songs.

Now at this point a great peace came over me and i felt blessed and pure.

Then he calmed down and his fierce fury and anger left him and he was no longer angry, but before in his anger I was and am sure that no man or army's or weapons or powers of any kind could go against him and live or stand.

Then he stood in front of me and put his hands together and became that flowing stream of energy that flowed into my chest.

Now the next thing I know we are standing together at the front doors of a large temple.

The doors opened and we walked in, at this point he was in the form of a man made with flesh and bone, he had on a great robe, it was white.

Now the temple was made of gold , but the floor was made of bright silver.

At the back of the temple was a great throne made of gold, the back of the throne was very high and beautiful, we are standing just inside the temple doors and to our right is a large table set with food, the table was 3ft x 40ft long, we walked over to the table sat down and started to eat, we said nothing at supper, then he stood up and walked over to his throne and he sat down. 

I got up just enough to go to the floor with my face on the floor and I crawled to the corner of the temple by the table, I kept my face to the floor as low as I could get. With my hands over my face I cried and wept in the corner.

After a little a little time passed I felt I had to go to his throne, so I said Lord God and he said "yes", I said may I come to your throne and he said "come", so I crawled to him with my face to the floor, I was crying and trembling.  I started kissing his feet and washing them with my tears.  Now the love and compassion coming from him was over whelming.

Then I felt not worthy even to kiss his feet so I said "Lord" and he said "yes" I said may I leave your throne, He said "yes", so I kept my face to the floor and crawled back to the corner where I was before and with my hands over my face I stayed there bowed down crying and weeping.

After what seemed to be about 10 minutes my heart started to yearn for him  overwhelmingly so I said "lord", he said "yes", I said can I come back to your throne, he said "come", so I crawled back to him with my face to the floor, I reached his feet and with much crying and weeping I started to kiss his feet again.
I knew he could read my mind and I knew I thought I was not worthy to look upon his face.
After what seemed to be about 5 minutes I said " lord" He said "yes", I said "may I leave your throne". He said "yes", so I crawled back to the corner like before and stayed there crying with my hands over my face bowed down.

After a little while I yearned for him again, everything in me and of me was saying go back to him, I must go back , so I said "Lord" he said "yes", I said "May I come back to your throne, he said "yes" so I started crawling back to him like before face down and crying.

Now this was the 3rd time I went to his thrown, I was kissing His feet and washing them with my tears.

Then I said "Lord", he said "yes", I said "May I leave your throne", he said "yes", so with my face to the floor I crawled only 2 feet and he said "stand up and walk back like a son", so I stood up happy and tall and walked back to the table where we had ate before, I sat there about 10 minutes with my hands over my face.
Then he stood up and walked over to me. I stood up and we walked together to the other side of the large table where there was a small table, on the small table was a diagram of what I would do.

Then he said "I am giving you a new name, your new name is the messenger and the witness, you are in my hand and I am in your heart and I have blessed you before the foundation of the world, you were in Christ during his resurrection, I am sending you to stand in front of many people", I said  "Lord god I can't do that", he said " I have taken your soiled rags and giving you a robe of righteousness, I will give you the power and the boldness and go before you and I will open the door and you will enter in and the rivers will be full and the shade shall be plenty".

I said "why me Lord", He said "You are a tree I have been pruning and trimming for my purpose and glory.
Now tell the people I gave them this message, I have sent you and if they know me they will receive you because you are of me, and if they receive you not it is because they know not me who sent you, and if they know not me who sent you they will be damned.
I am your God and besides me there is no other, I have life in my hand. I the lord have spoke it.

"I am He, when you come to my throne you bring with you fear in one hand and trembling in the other hand, do not bring with you idle talk or children's games for there is a fierce war in heaven and earth, after you enter into the kingdom then you will rejoice and be glad, but for now bring with you fear and trembling".
Then he pointed down at the diagram on the small table and said "here you are standing in front of many people and you will do very good for a time and reaching many, you will stand and your ministry will stand, and right here you will leave and go straight through the gates of the kingdom and enter into the kingdom".
Your robe is already there waiting for you, and your crown is there also.
Then He said "All of your family will be saved and enter the kingdom".

Now the next thing I know we are back in the cab of the semi truck, He is standing to my right and I am driving just like before we went into his temple.
The truck was not stopped or pulled over at any time, it is now 4:30am, I was amazed and crying and thinking of all he had told me, then he said " I am going into my temple ". Then he turned into that stream of energy again and flowed into my chest again.
We did not talk for the next hour but the music was still coming out of me, the music was loud, the music was not of this world, it was so beautiful and sounded like singing angels, maybe 10 or 15 of them.
Now at about 6 o'clock I was wondering if he was still in me so i said "Lord God", and he said  "I am here", so i drove till about 7 o'clock and arrived at my delivery and pick-up point, in Coalinga CA at I-5 Hwy and 198 Hwy, I arrived 3 minutes early and traded trucks with the driver from the south from Fontana CA I started my return trip at 7:15am, now as I was driving I would remember parts of what happened so I would pull over and write them down and I pulled over many times on the way back.
Now then the Lord spoke from inside me he sounded like many lions roaring at the same time, and sometimes He sounded as soft as a lamb.
I arrived back at the truck terminal in Willows at 12:30pm, I got in my car and started to drive home.

So I arrived home and sat down shaking and crying, I could not stop, it was so intense, I just sat there shaking and crying.
My wife was soon home and I started to tell her all that had happened to me, she started crying saying thank you Jesus thank you Lord.
We wept together and cried together for the rest of the evening.
I did sleep before going back to work but not much.
I woke up and got ready for work, I left for work at 12:45am on day #2.
Now normally I would pray at this time when I first start driving, asking the Lord to watch over me and my driving, and to protect my family while I am away, but I was still shuck up from what happened and did not feel like praying or talking to the Lord right then so I said "Lord" He said "I am here", I said "I'm still shook up from yesterday, is it okay if we talk later, He said "yes" so i kept on driving and wondering what would happen later.

Now when the Lord would talk His voice came right out of me because he was inside of me, it was not a little small voice inside me like I sometimes here, when he talked for these 2days his voice was as fierce as a lion or sounded like many waterfalls sometimes his voice was as meek as a lamb, very calm, but always clear just the way it sounds when someone is in the room talking, his voice filled the car or cab of the truck, I heard it with regular ears.

So I got to work at 1:45am, picked up the semi truck and drove south on I-5 like normal.

At about 4am there was a strong rushing wind that came out of me in the form of a tornado, it just sat to my right spinning for a minute, it was about 3ft by 4ft high.
It stopped, he was in the form of a man but was red in color, bright red and look like flowing electricity, I looked and in his right hand was a big red ball, it was about the size of a basketball and it looked like bright red flowing electricity or energy.
He said with a loud voice "receive ye fire", and he slammed the red ball on my chest, it exploded on me and went all over me and in me, I was jerking back and forth.
The energy was so strong it took my breath, I had to catch my breath then I looked over and He now has a big blue ball in his right hand, and it looked like energy or electricity, this blue ball was bigger than the red ball and he was bigger to.
Then he said with a loud voice "Receive Ye Hold Ghost", then he slammed it on my chest and it exploded on me and went over me and in me again, and again I was jerking back and forth, I had to catch my breath again, and he said in a loud voice, "Many men have cried and many men would have died to see what you have seen".

Then he put his hands together and turned into a stream of energy that flowed into my chest again.
So I sat there dringing and thinking.
Now at about 5am he came out of me again the same way , loud wind and a spinning tornado, when he stopped he was in the form as before, tan in color. 
Then he said in a loud voice "put on the whole Armor of GOD and keep your eyes on JESUS and your heart on the HOLY GHOST, I am giving you gifts of the spirit"
I said what gift's LORD, he said "Discerning of spirit's and the ability to cast out evil spirit's", then I said what other gift's Lord, He said "Let it be according to your faith".
then went back inside me, so I sat there driving the truck and thinking.
I arrived at Colinga CA at about 7:30am, traded trucks and started back north at 7:45
At 8:45am, I said LORD, he said "yes", I said I am sorry they crucified you he said "it is all right it had to be done".

I arrived back at the willows terminal at 1:00pm and got in my car heading for home.
Then he said "On the 3rd day I will reveal what you should do, and go to the church and have the elders out there hands on you and anointing you with oil so that you will receive your healing."
    When I got home I was wondering what the Lord would reveal (tomorrow) on the 3rd day, so I sat there rested and prayed, I was thinking about all that had happened over the last 2 days, I went to bed early at about 7:30pm.

I woke up early at 5am, it was the 3rd day and i was excited about what the Lord would reveal that I should do, and it did not take him long to do it.
I said "LORD", he said nothing, I said "LORD", he said nothing "Oh no my LORD your gone". Then he revealed to me what I should do.I had thought and was thinking that he was going to be in me in POWER and talk to me as I went on my mission and talk to me as I did my ministry, in other words to hold my hand every step of the way, and to guide me, but now I realize that I must go forth in faith and as a man, and walk in the spirit, as a son of GOD. Now go forth as a boy having my hand held.

Now I know he is inside me, I know he will lead me, but I wanted to hear his voice like I did, and see him come out of me as a rushing wind, I wanted to ask him questions and hear his answers, to just stand in his presents and feel the love and compassion coming from him.
When I realized he was not going to be in me and with me in that kind of POWER I broke down real bad and started crying very bitterly, I sat there crying and pleading to him LORD, LORD, please come back, I need to hear your voice again.
Well I was not able to call him back to me, that does not surprise me because I did not call him to me the first time, he came to me when he was ready, I was not even praying.
I am nothing special, just a man who believes that GOD will do what he wants, when he wants, and who he wants according to his will, and I know he will complete his work in me.
