I Was A Former Satanic Priest

 

By: Mark O'Reilly, Pastor

I was born to an 18 year old woman and an alcoholic father of 19 years old. My mother raised me basically by herself until I was 7 years old, when she married my stepfather (who later adopted me). My mother worked in a shoe factory and also for my grandfather as a dispatcher for his cab company. Things on the home front weren't good. My mother's communication level consisted of yelling and screaming and I was a witness to the many beatings she took from my biological father.

I started drinking beer about the age of 9, graduating to vodka and hard liquor by the time I was of 11 years old. I began getting high on pot at 13 years old then on to LSD months later. I met a man who showed me magic beyond what anyone could imagine and the access to all the booze and drugs I could ever want! At that time I joined a coven, which is a church of Satan, where I served as a level one witch.  I excelled in my learning, gaining more and more strength in my knowledge of witchcraft. At 16 years old, I was a satanic priest and in control of the drug supply in and out of the church, as well as the followers. I had countless women as personal slaves to do whatever I wished. The list goes on and on.

One day while waiting for a bus to go to school, a young woman, whom I did not know, appeared out of nowhere and asked me, "How are you?". I was coming down from a high from the night before and retorted with, "What do you think?". She completely ignored my response and asked if I'd like to see a movie. With the ulterior motive of recruiting her to my already well established group of slave-women, I said, "sure what time?" and proceeded to set the time for 6 p.m. that night.

I had no idea what I was getting into as we walked in to a large building in Boston, which later turned out to be Tremont St. Baptist Church. It looked like a theater. I sat down and began to watch the movie. I sat in awe of what I realized was my life on the screen! After the movie I wept like never before. John D`Brine from Songtime radio broadcast was the speaker that night. It seemed he was looking straight at me when he asked the audience, "is this your life?". I nodded my head in response. Without missing a beat, he said "you need to turn it around and come down to the front and someone will show you how.

I did go forward that day and accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord of my life. I went to the coven and proceeded to tell them I was getting out. I left and went back to my apartment. Someone put a burlap sack over my head, beat me, stripped me of my clothing and left me for dead at Saint Luke's Hospital. I began reading a Bible and serving the Lord while I was recovering from injuries I had received from the beating. I thanked the Lord then, as I do now, that He saved me from the eternal damnation I was heading for. It was God's love and grace that was extended to me that day that has given me eternal life with Him in heaven.

My friend, if your not living a life for Christ, you are heading for eternal damnation. I plead with you to turn your life around and ask Jesus into your heart as Lord and Savior today. Don't wait until it's too late.

Revelation 3:20 says, "Behold I stand at the door and knock, if anyone listens to my voice and opens the door, I shall come into him and dine with him and he with me.

In the Master's Service,
Pastor Mark

 


Footnote: No one saw the woman enter the church with me that night...nor saw me talking to her...nor have I seen her since....perhaps an angel of God?
