My name is Rosa L. Gonzalez, I come from a family of eleven children. I was born on a farm in Mexico. I’ve been married for 20 years and I have two children, but in truth, I have nothing good to say about myself. The only thing that is good in me is what the Lord has done for me. Since I was seven years old I began working with my father in the field. My parents would only send me to school when all the work in the field was finished. Every year I would be placed in first grade so at age thirteen I did not want to return to school. At seventeen years of age I went to work in the city and a lady taught me how to read, write and the basics of math in two weeks. I only had two weeks to learn what was being taught to me or else I would’ve gotten fired and have had to return to the field and work with my father from sunrise to sunset, which was very difficult. My goal was to work in the city in order to send money to my dad so that he too would not have had to work in the fields. That was a promise I made to my father. The Lord fulfilled the promise I had made to my father. Two years later I was promoted to manager in the place that I was employed. I do not consider myself as an example to set for others. I just want to share what the Lord has done for me over my shortcomings and mistakes. The Lord shows no partiality. Deuteronomy 10: 17 Whenever there is a broken and contrite heart, that is where the Lord will be. To save, to heal, to bless you and give you life. Just dare to speak to him directly, he is faithful and powerful and never fails.
Walking with Jesus. On this book also I testified from a personal experience. I was dead for more than three hours. At that time I went to heaven and walk with the Lord Jesus. After That He return me to my body and gave me another chance, so I could tell the world that our God is real, trust Him because everything that He says in his word will be fulfilled. I’d like to emphasize the purpose of this book in three points: First, realize that the Lord can heal any illness through his servants. He uses his servants through his Holy Spirit. (Mark 16:17-18 NKJV) And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover. Second, realize that the Lord will be manifested in their life, above all, regardless of their condition, situation, education, race, religion or denomination. (Deuteronomy 10:17 NKJV) For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality nor takes a bribe. At times we think that God only works miracles on good people, or that we have to arrive at certain level of spirituality to be able to receive something of Him, but this is not true. God does good things with all the people. We all have called upon Him even when we have been entangled in crimes and sins and He has heard delivered and forgiven us. He transformed us because that is what He came for. As noted in… (Luke 19:10 NKJV) for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that who which was lost. So if consider yourself a sinner and feel unworthy of God’s favor you are qualified. The Lord came for you and he wishes to work miracles in your life. Finally I wish to make you aware of the life after physical death. Based on what I have experienced, the life after the death is more real than the very life we are living now. Because when you think of passed things you recall them vaguely but when you are there and recall passed or present things you see them in tangible form. All the senses are opened to the fullest. You are conscious of everything and you feel all. In (Luke 16:19-31) you find a story the Lord Jesus told of the rich man and Lazarus. Read and see that this is real. If I can make you aware even a little in any of these three points, I will have fulfilled my purpose.
