Man Who Made Blood Covenant With Satan Has a Dramatic Encounter With Jesus

Bishop decided to kill himself the next day. But on his way to work that morning, he got a mental image of Jesus. “It was the craziest thing in the world,” he said. “I began to feel like maybe he’ll forgive me and I’ll somehow find forgiveness and just be really low and just be like dirt to God…and that’s better than where I’m headed.”

When Bishop got home from work, he searched for Bible verses related to spiritual warfare and renouncing Satan. He began to speak these verses aloud. He then gathered his occult items, such as tarot cards, incense, and books on witchcraft, and threw them away. Outside his house, he fell on his face and prayed, “God, I know that I don’t deserve to be forgiven..but if you want to forgive me, I’m asking for it. God I need help. I need a new life.”

When he went back inside, Bishop sensed a presence in the room. It was “so different,” he said, no longer “heavy.” Instead of feeling depressed, he felt, “alive,” “excited” and hopeful. 

Bishop says he was immediately healed of his mental illness and his addictions. “I just felt this love and this joy from God, and I received that acceptance, and it was unlike anything I’ve ever had my entire life. It was just so fulfilling.”

Since leaving the occult and turning to Jesus, Bishop has gotten married and is now an ordained youth pastor. He manages his church’s sober living home for men and does counseling and evangelistic outreach. “I just thank God for everything that he’s done in my life,” he said, “and it’s a blessing to be able to reach out to people. It doesn’t matter how far away from God you are, how far you’ve gone with the devil, how much you’ve surrendered to him. You can always come back to Jesus.”
