I am happy to share my testimony (Revelation 12:11), to give all the Glory, Honor, Power, and Praise, in the name of Jesus, to my Lord my God. I am Apache from the San Carlos Apache Reservation in Arizona.
What an Apache Medicine man (approximately 70 years old) told me over 20 years ago is true and has been for many years. He said today's Apache medicine is out for self-glorification/fame, money/greed and corruption, and they have no reverence or respect for the Apache god, Usen or the Apache religion. He said they do not hold this sacred and holy any more. He had said he is one of the true remaining Apache men and that today's medicine men do not even know he is one.
This Apache medicine man told me this over 20 years ago. Back then my mom had taken me to many Apache medicine men to pray for me not to go to prison. These Apache medicine man asked to be paid a lot of money, and mom did pay. Many of these Apache medicine men told me that curses were put on me to die. It is well known on my reservation for many decades, that Apache medicine man are paid by Apaches to put a curse on other Apaches. Well their prayer for me to Usen, the Apache god did not work. The jury found me guilty and sentenced me to prison. It was in the county jail, before they sent me to prison, that Jesus the Christ loved, found, and saved me. Praise God!
Wonderful Lord Jesus my Savior, taught, discipled, and trained me in the county jail and in three prisons by God the Holy Spirit. Then He got me out of prison and told me "Go and tell everyone that what He did for me He can do for others” (Mark 16 The Great Commission).
The Lord did get me out of prison and has been sending me around across USA for twenty years. I have no money or support, but Lord has supplied for all my needs. Yes, theLord has sent me back to these Apache medicine men and my reservation to tell them I had renounced Usen the Apache god and the Apache religion, and to tell them that I have confessed Jesus is my Lord and Savior.
Out of all the Apache medicine men, only two encouraged me. This old Apache medicine man encouraged me to stay with the One who loved, found, and saved me. He said this One is powerful and true. He said this One is pure and holy. He told me to never come back to the Apache god Usen and the Apache religion. He told me I must tell the Apaches about this. He said to hold him in prayer and that someday he will give his heart and life to this One I talked about. He passed away a year after Lord had me sent me to see him and share with him about Jesus the Christ.
Please pray for this Apache Eagle, because pastors, churches, and Christians call me the devil and that I am of Satan. Please pray for me that God, the Holy Spirit keeps leading me on and that the Lord's will be done for His Glory. Praise the Lord. Smile - Jesus loves you all and I do too.
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13-14).
