FROM A STREET GANGSTER TO A PREACHER

Jesus Did It!

By: Victor King

As a child, I went from troubled - to bad - to worse.  By the time I was 17, I had dropped out of school to become a gangster.  I was addicted to alcohol, smoking, vulgarities and pornography while pursuing a life of crime. One day I met a girl who invited me to church. There I met Jesus Christ and surrendered my life to Him.  I have never been the same again, as my life continues to undergo an amazing transformation.

I was born in Singapore in 1980, and grew up in a Christian family.  Despite hating to go to church, I was forced to attend by my parents. They sent me to a Christian school but that didn't help. When I reached high school, that's when I was influenced by my friends, and got involved in a gang, smoking and skipping school. Things were turning from bad to worse as this became a lifestyle of bondage for me.

Then I started stealing, vandalizing, drinking and getting into fights.  My folks found out about it and tried to talk me out of it, but it didn't work.  I was very rude, hot-tempered and vulgar.  My teachers, the school staff, relatives, good friends and even counselors tried talking to me, but none of them could get through.

The Street Life

I was expelled from school because of my bad attitude and poor attendance.  I became a dropout at age 17.  It didn't really matter to me that I was a dropout.  Rather, it gave me more reasons to become a full-time gangster.

I frequented pubs with my gang members daily.  I became a very heavy smoker and I got hooked on alcohol.  I was full of obscenities and got addicted to pornography.  I started womanizing and stayed away from home most of the time. There were times I got involved in armed robberies.  Most of my friends were drug addicts and ex-convicts. This troubled life took control over me.  I was so lost in my sin.  I became the worst guy in my family. No one could change me; not even the Army.

After I was drafted into the Singapore Armed Forces, many people thought I would change for the better, but unfortunately, I did not.  I got himself into the army prison (detention barracks) for going A.W.O.L (unauthorized absence) and for my bad attitude.  I was also brought back to the police station a couple of times.  My lifestyle kept pointing me to the prison, but I would always escape without getting caught.

My slavery to the devil came to an end just a few years ago.  I had had quite a number of girlfriends in the past, and most of them were unbelievers.  Five years ago (as of 2008), I got to know a girl who was a Christian. She brought me to her church. The Lord Jesus touched me and I started to break down.  I suddenly felt so in love and loved, but I didn't know how or by whom. All I knew was that this love was something beyond human experience. That day I received Jesus as My Lord and Saviour.

Life Transformation

My life was not the same after that day.  As time went on, Jesus delivered me from so many things.  Nine years of heavy smoking ended.   Six years of alcohol addiction was gone, and as time went by, God supernaturally took me out of the gang; delivered me from vulgarities, anger, womanizing, pornography, filthy lust and many more bad habits. The Lord made me see women in a different way.

I became a new creation in Christ.  And I was also healed of a 10-year urinary bladder problem.  Amazing grace!  What man could not do, Jesus did. The people who knew me were shocked at the changes in me. The Bible says, with man it may seem impossible, but with God, all things are possible.  It also says that sin shall have no dominion over us for we are not under law but under God's grace.

The Lord is still working in my life.  I have felt the power and the manifest glory of Jesus in my transformed life.

There is hope in Jesus Christ.  I'm living proof!

FROM A STREET GANGSTER TO A PREACHER

 


Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God?  We plead with you ... please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God; to be at peace with God; to have your sins forgiven; to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity; to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life.
