"When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.” – Acts. 2:1-4
Right from the olden times referring to the Old Testament God sent many prophet’s to proclaim the good news and what God wanted to speak to his people to be known through His prophet’s. This present time God has sent Fr. Jerry as a prophet to us. If someone is reading my testimony and really want to hear from God, listen to Fr. Jerry.
I am Steevan from Chandor Goa. I was well settled and was having a good business, daily enjoying, good food, drinks, parties, picnics, no importance to God Sunday Christian. This went on for many years suddenly there was a stop in my life. My business was gone my close relative over took all my business and I was left with nothing. I had no job or any source of income. Being at home I started watching Rophe TV and was very much keen to listen to Fr. Jerry’s talks (sermon’s). I started attending Fr. Jerry’s retreats. After five retreats I spoke to Fr. Jerry about my life and expected some guidance. He was in a hurry. He told me only four sentences.

My dear brothers and sisters, I am confidently able to say that truly ‘I am the chosen one’. As the word tells, “You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” – 1 Peter 2:9
Jesus tells us a parable about the wedding banquet, where the King sends his slaves to call all the invited guests. But none of the guests took the invitation seriously and refuse to attend the banquet. The King was enraged and sent his slaves again to call all those who were on the streets, both good and bad; so the wedding hall was filled with guests. But the King noticed a man who was not wearing a wedding robe. So he was bound and thrown into the outer darkness - Matthew. 22:1-13. Though this parable, Jesus explains that “Many are called, but few are chosen.” – Matthew. 22:14.
Oh Lord the beauty of your creations,
Makes me realize your comprehension,
I always glorify you when I look at those masterpieces.
To love those creatures this is the reason.
They are just really perfect,
And makes me understand we are your important aspect,
Your sacrifice for us is just mind-blowing,
You are my awesome God, whom I am following.
Your beauty and majesty I can't imagine,
This world is foolish who worship gods made out of carvings,
O Lord, Why can't they think wisely?
That in one rough human touch those gods can be in waste bin.
Jehovah the root of wisdom,
Jesus the king of the heavenly Kingdom,
Holy Spirit a present helper,
Are the true God who resides in us humans.

In my weakness you are my strength,
In my distress you are my hope,
When I am dying you are my breath,
When it is impossible you help me cope.
In the hardest of hard journey,.
You make sure my safety,
You never delay my destiny,
All of my days I am strong, for you are with me.
When temptations come in my way,
I believe I can defeat it by your grace,
Now I won't run away from the battle field,
By your strength I can move every mountains and hills.
Jehovah alone is my God and refuge,
In his Son I can win every battle small and huge,
With his spirit I can solve the situation which makes me confuse,
Blessed be my Triune God forever.
