The Unsung Hero
Proclaiming My Mind For Him

You know…you simply, just know…

And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given it was given to hurt the earth and the sea. Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

Revelations 7:2,3

The book of Revelations depicts what is to come for the human race. I just find this book in the Bible so compeling, profound that I would never have expected this to be in the Bible. One the biggest things that I found that stands out is that the new believers of Christ during the End Times will also revieve a mark on their foreheads. This mark shows that they have already sided with God, which is supposively visible by only other believers. In other words, believers can tell apart the saved from the lost, by only looking at their foreheads…what a feeling that must be! To be able to see who has given their lives to Christ while knowing who needs Christ in their life. It is true that it would cause discrimination, but to know who is saved simply by sight…that would truley be something. So how can you tell a christian from a non-christian? You sure can’t tell by only observing, because you can be a good person or go to church, yet never given your life to Christ. Then there is always the case of whether or not they really meant it. You have to mean it in your heart. Ever since getting into Revelations, I wondered when that day would come. That is when I started to worry for the people close to me; my dad, sister, and the rest of my family in Guatemala. I would pray to God to be able to back to Guatemala and minister to my relatives, because last time I went I was not yet a christian. I mean, I only started going to student ministry for all the wrong reasons. A big thing was that I KNEW my dad and sister didn’t know Christ, but did nothing about it. My dad is wise when it comes to the Bible, but I could soon tell he only KNEW about the Bible. The Lord truley worked a miracle on New Year’s Day. My dad isn’t one to be emotional at all (only doing so when he drank about 5 years ago on special occasions). At around 4 AM, I found my dad coming from the garage door. Fearing he had once again drank again like every time around that year, I hoped wouldn’t be true. The moment he said “Tito, come.” it was undeniable he had some beer. He never talks to me in English. He wasn’t completely drunk, maybe a beer or two. He still knew what he was saying. At that moment, we had our first actual ‘father, son’ moment. As we embraced, he poured his heart out with what God had laid upon it. ‘what God had laid upon it’. From what my dad told me, it was impossible for it to be from a man of the world, but of the Lord. He didn’t say it, but it was undeniably true to see what he said…was of a man who had finally given his life to Jesus. A man who has had tribulations throughout his life, has finally surrendered his life. That night will never leave my mind. How the Lord gave me strength when I asked for it so I wouldn’t be overtaken with tears by such precious things that were uttered. How Glorious is the Name Jesus Christ, The Beginning and The End, the true Bright Morning Star!!!! To have my father finally give his life to The Holy Father! The Father of me and every single person!

It’s hard to tell who has truley given their life to Christ. You know…you simply, just know…
