Jesus Did It!
By: Jason Maki
I grew up in a strict household. My father was an entrepreneur, a jack of all trades and a union ironworker who oversaw projects like the Jimmy Hendrix museum in Seattle and the construction of the Second Narrows Bridge. He was also maintenance alcoholic - meaning he got a good six beer buzz nearly every night of my life. I rarely saw him drunk though. He collected classic cars and was a self proclaimed king.
As a teen I was not allowed to talk on the phone or watch TV, and if I didn't make my bed I would get grounded for months and lose my stereo. I started reading Stephen King books to escape since I was confined to my room, if I wasn't working for my father. I read Fire Starter by King and became interested in hard core drugs. My father didn't know what I was learning from these books.
By 16 I had been sneaking Mickey's malt liquor and getting pretty drunk sneaking out the window once the family was asleep. I was told I wouldn't get a driver's license until I moved out because I got C's for grades, so I up and stole a truck from a neighbor. Then I was grounded the whole summer following 9th grade. Then 10th grade I was into Nirvana and Kurt had just killed himself.
Fueling my depression of feeling like my life wasn't going anywhere ... I stole another car and crashed into a tree head on and almost died. I then went to juvenile hall for a few weeks. My father never talked to me again for over a decade until I approached him in Jesus name.
I became a meth addict/dealer, dropping out of high school. I turned into skin and bones --6 ft tall and 120 lbs. I discovered Rainbow Valley south of Olympia, Washington. Wanderers and modern day hippies gathered there and I started eating hundreds of hits of acid and huffing nitrous.
I was gone ... I figured I would die at 18.
Somehow I managed to keep up with years of mixing the drugs and malt liquor ... up all hours of the night and small arrests; misdemeanors.
One of my best friends at the time and I got in an argument about whether there is a God or not. We had been up for nights and this was about 5 a.m. We were strung out. He said, "Everybody knows there is nothing after you die.'
I said, 'You are 'gonna eat your words." Sure enough, he went to prison for basically nothing shortly thereafter for seven years. This was a confirmation to me that God was real.
By 2002 I became a major ecstasy user, popping hundreds of pills. I started hanging out heavy with the gangs of Tacoma, mainly on hilltop near where I was born at St. Joseph Hospital. I began smoking pcp and drinking ghb, the date rape drug. So I was mixing ecstasy, pcp, ghb and finally methamphetamine.
I had a wild week on pcp and ended up with cops swarming into my grandmother's yard with guns drawn ' hauling me off insane. I became a false prophet overnight - screaming in the streets about the world ending. I went into the jail telling the whole force I was Jesus Christ and that nobody loves me and everyone is going to hell.
They locked me in the hole. I stayed there for a week. They didn't know what to do with me. I had hallucinations of all kinds. I saw Hitler miserable, cannibals, homosexual demons, a future of rolling universal fire and an evil trinity as the last 10 seconds of judgment day counted down. They were cussing and playing cards ... sarcastic and immature. Keep in mind, I knew basically nothing about the Bible or Christ at this time.
In the hole I froze and clutched my chest with no tears left. I was ripped from my body and my spirit was paralyzed in space. I was clear and weightless ... a light feeling. I felt perfect. I could look around, but I had no body. I saw the earth below me like a small marble.
Then a crucified Christ came from deep space floating towards me. I was seeing Jesus dying in agony and I was at the foot of the cross. He began to speak telepathically and gently while I witnessed Him suffering all at the same time. He said, "Most know what I've done down there. They simply don't care.' He also said, 'The father is tired of saying 'pretty please.''
Then I was cast into hell. Hell is not a place any man can stand for even one second. It was utter insanity. It was like a reverse revelation. Basically I realized I was isolated from God and He couldn't hear me. In fact, I couldn't yell. Nothing enabled me to call for help. All I could hear was shrieking and nonstop insane laughter. It was like I had a choice: Choose either one -- to laugh uncontrollably, or scream. Right when I began to truly understand the intense horror of hell, I was pulled out by the light.
I was sent to two different mental hospitals over the next four months where God sent me other patients to speak on His behalf ' men that couldn't put 2 and 2 together were coming at random and giving me instructions from the Lord 'one of which was simply, 'Be obedient.'
I vowed in a padded room to serve the Lord with everything I am and have should He grant me sanity.
The day I finished reading my Bible, He let me out. There are many, many side testimonies of the God-kind while I was in the hospitals, but once released, I instantly forgot the Lord, and within six months had a gun to my head and all I could think about was the broken vow.
My epiphany of Jesus Christ was a 3-part process over the course of a year. I was drawn by the Holy Spirit to get baptized. I was high on God for the first time. It was unlike any drug -- there has been no come down. In seven short years I had baptized many meth addicts in rivers; built a life-size cross and carried it through my state; put the name Jesus in bold white block letters on a black low-rider van and went around acting like a gang member for Jesus.
One of my greatest testimonies is my anointed wife. She's a college grad from the Philippines who lost her life for Jesus Christ. I don't know how but God made a way to travel back and forth to the Philippines ' taking part in women's prison ministry and police camps with my wife's ministry.
We got married and God provided the whole way. Within a month after my wife finally (after fasting once a week for over a year) arrived in the U.S. One of my disciples turned out to be one of the richest brothers around and his mom gave me $50,000 dollars towards God's Gang.
We have done many radical things in Jesus name and people just can't believe how abundant our life has been and continues to be in the love and liberty within god's family.
I pray God somehow uses my brief testimony to penetrate hardened hearts. If so ... to Him be all the glory.

A Special Message: http://www.precious-testimonies.com/Exhortations/f-j/HelpingShareTheMessageOfTheCross.htm
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 you 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, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
