(By: Kenneth W. Green)
First, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Kenneth W. Green. I was born in Shreveport, LA. I have been in Detroit most of my life. I grew up without a father. By the time I turned 22 years old I went to my hometown to find my dad. But when I got there bad news came to my ears - and that was that my dad had been deceased for two months. I must say this news was not good news - it broke my heart. I felt like someone had poisoned me. It seemed like when I swallowed, someone had cut my throat out.
As life went on, I began to experience many other similar pains. I also began to see that something was missing - "but what" I didn't know. I began to sell drugs in the inner city, but eventually that played out. I tried cars and women and found that didn't satisfy me either. Money could not fill that "something" I was searching for. One day, bless God, He sent an angel to me and she invited me to a church on 7Mile called Solomon's Temple. At this time, this lady was going through a few problems herself, but the Lord used her in spite of our problems. She was attractive to me and I was attractive to her also. She took me to the place where I received Jesus as my Savior and from there He became my Lord.
I went to a pool in that church to be water baptized and went down in Jesus name and then went on to the upper room and began to tarry for the Holy Spirit. Coming up out of the water, I felt like a brand new man. I didn't receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit at that time. I went on home and when I was over at a friend's house, I began to praise God and all of a sudden something broke on the inside of me. It was like a river of power gushing up! I was endued with power and began to speak in another tongue. I knew at that moment that God was real - I didn't want to stop! It was too powerful to stay in the water, so the Lord led me to go and tell the world. I ran and told everybody I met - my words were "I got it, I got it!" People thought I was crazy - they said "got what?" I said "the Holy Ghost!"
I do want to say here that there was one valuable lesson I learned, and that is I needed Jesus continually. It took awhile before my conversion took place because I didn't know that the Word of God was food to my new nature and I wasn't reading it at all. That's how I became helpless and weak. The enemy came and immediately stole the knowledge I needed of reading the Word, but it was my fault because I didn't keep attending church and got back into the ways of the world.
Then I ended up catching this case of armed robbery (3 counts) and I was facing 25 to 30 years in prison. But by the grace of God and His mercy He put it on the heart of the courts to drop two counts and I pled for a sentence of 5 to 70 years. This was no one but my Lord - He had His hands upon my life.
I have been in His Word for five and a half years now. I'm doing a flop now - threw off my not getting into the Word. These five years the Lord has taken me to many promotions and since I've been here at Carson City Prison, I have had many experiences here. One day I was walking out back on what we call the Back Forties, which are the tracks. I was walking and praising God and suddenly the inner man (Holy Spirit) stretched his face out to the surface of my face and looked around and began to weep for His creation - letting me know that this kind of love is in me and I in Him.
One day also I was writing letters and I asked Jesus to show me how did he use man to pen His Word by the spirit. His spirit stood behind me about three feet -I was in Him and He allowed me to see my body still at the table writing by His power. I grabbed my hand because I could not feel it and He said, "Peace be still and know that I am God." So I stood in peace after He spoken and commanded me, and then it happened again. At the time I said, "Wow!" Then He said "Okay, that's enough."
Thank you for reading my testimony. It is my prayer that somehow it has blessed and helped you in some way. I thank the Lord for allowing me to be able to share this with you.
