Mortezah’s Testimony – Read by Steve
Before I met Jesus, my life was full of lies and deception. I used to lie a lot and had a hardened heart. I used to think only about myself and didn’t help anyone else.
I was also a victim of other people’s lies and I was deceived by them. I had hardly seen goodness or kindness in my life before I met Jesus.
When I was in Iran, I started seeking Jesus Christ and was looking into the claims of Christianity. One day it occurred to me that if Christianity is real, I too can ask for a sign as a proof. Therefore, I said to God: “If you are real, please give me a sign.” That very night before going to bed I read the Bible a bit and I dreamt the following dream:
“My sister and I were somewhere and we were facing someone. Somehow, I knew my sister was a sinner. I started to ask the person in front of us to forgive my sister. In my dream, I continued to plead with the person to forgive my sister; to the point where I started to cry and beg that person to forgive my sister’s sins.”
At this point I snapped out of sleep, startled!! I noticed that I was reaaaaally crying and my face was all wet. I was shaking all over and I knew this dream was no coincidence because that very night I had been asking to see if Jesus is really real or not!! I had read in the Bible that Jesus shed His blood for the forgiveness of our sins. From that night onwards I believed in Jesus Christ as my saviour.
I have learned to love others. I now believe & have understood that because of Jesus’ death on the cross for me, all my sins have been forgiven and I have been given a new life. I have changed a lot!
I have sooooo much joy and love. Jesus has changed my behaviour towards my family – especially my relationship with my wife. To the point where my wife said: “Ever since you have become a believer in Jesus, you have become a different person!!” I now only show my wife pure and genuine love instead of having arguments. I have acknowledged that most of the arguments were my fault and many times a day I used to ask my wife to forgive me.
Before my conversion, I used to visit my parents once or twice a year. If my mother wanted my help, I used to make excuses so as not to do the task. My mother used to cry, saying: “you do not love us anymore.” After my conversion, I now respect my parents and visit them daily!! Before my departure from Iran, my mother was very happy & said: “Beforehand you never visited us and now you visit us once or even twice a day!!!!”
I want to get baptised because Jesus has told us to believe in Him & be baptised.
