My name is Lloyd Chin. Since the age of 15, I have been a Christian and attended various Christian Churches (Protestant, Church of God, AOG, FGA, Charismatic, Pentescostal etc) over a period of about 20 years. I believe God was not present in most of the Churches I attended, and I gave up on Church for about 7 years.
I was a sinner but did not realise I was wicked, one who thought he knew God, but was in fact faraway from God, most likely headed for eternal flames and damnation (if you knew me personally, I apologise if I hurt you). I was proof that you can be in Church for 20 years, confess that Jesus is the son of God, is God and your personal saviour, yet still be headed for damnation. The power of sin and death, in me, had not been defeated.
Mercifully, God called on my wife, healed her heart from childhood torments through the power of the Holy Spirit and we returned to Church. Approximately three days later the Holy Spirit came to convict me of my sins. He showed me people that I had hurt just by living for me selfishly. I broke down and wept everyday for about a week. (Before this I had never cried more than 2 drop of tears over 25 years. I was a hard person.) After this I surrendered my life over to Jesus Christ because I realised that I was a hopeless sinner (Church never really told me I was wicked even though the Bible clearly says so). Even when I tried to do good, I hurt people. I repented for my sins and forgave everyone that had hurt me. Within a few weeks we were water baptised.
Unfortunately, once again, we discovered our Church in Australia was asleep. It was filled with nice people, nice music and nice sermons but it was undeniable: The power of the living God was not present. To the best of my knowledge, no one was ever healed or delivered from unclean spirits in Church. If deliverance happened, it was behind closed doors and no one ever spoke about it. No one taught me how to rebuke the devil or discussed spiritual warfare. Don’t think me strange because these things are in your Bibles.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
God is alive!
I was disillusioned with Church because it was not the Church in the Bible and so I kept seeking God, daily. Within a short time (a few weeks), God opened another window, and to my amazement, I discovered that God was very much alive in the lives of some people.
How I kept seeking
I watched a movie called Heaven is for Real and found a young child, Colton Burpo, speak about his experiences in heaven. Even his dad found it hard to believe him. As I was viewing his story on youtube, I came across many Near Death Experience videos, watched many of them and realised that there must be an afterlife. It was confirmation.
One day, I stumbled across Chris Lasala casting out demons over Skype. I then realised Jesus Christ is real, alive and full of power. There was no way Chris could’ve faked all those deliverance videos on his channel. There are over 60 videos from people calling in from all around the world and he has hundreds more (which the participants have not given consent to be shown).
I then carried out this test: I tried to find one single video of people casting out demons other than the name of Jesus and could not find a single one! This was triple confirmation.
Before long, I stumbled upon TB Joshua’s ministry and saw him casting out demons and healing people. The healing videos were amazing. This was quadruple confirmation.
God’s anointed ones
I wondered to myself: What made these people special? Why did God favour them? How did they obtain God’s anointing? Why were all the Churches I attended in Australia asleep?
Clearly, the problem was me and not God. I concluded that my life was simply not holy enough for God to use. I had to turn away from sin and use the name of Jesus to overcome the desires of my flesh.
I will admit that certain aspects of Chris’ teaching are viewed by some as “difficult” but, in my view, there is no denying that God uses Chris mightily. He is casting out devils in accordance with Mark 16. If you or I wish to argue against his teachings, then let us also demonstrate the same power of God to cast out devils in Jesus’ name. If you don’t have power from God then you are doing something wrong and whatever Chris is doing, pleases the Most High.
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
The first thing Jesus mentions concerning them that believe is that they cast out devils in His name. And also note that Satan cannot cast out Satan (I have come across pastors who ignorantly say that satan can cast out satan):
25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:
26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.
28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.
Follow God, not men
For a long time, I followed men and women who did not have God’s anointing or power. They taught with enticing words of man’s wisdom. They were lost and I was lost. Truly, the blind was leading the blind. Churches everywhere nowadays are led by pastors who teach but do not have true power from the living God.
Do not fall into this trap. If your Church does not have the presence of the living God in it, in accordance with Mark 16:17-18, leave and find a Church that delivers and heals people. One thing Satan really dislikes is his minions being removed from people. If you cannot find such a Church then stay at home, read your Bible and listen to sermons from TB Joshua or David Middleton or Derek Prince. There is a must view teaching video on spiritual authority in David’s library, which will scripturally explain to you who you are in God’s sight.
God showed me this test to help me discern true believers from those that are not. Hence, why the name of this website is “test of believers”. I find many Christians today don’t realise the importance of testing who are the true people of God, before listening to a teaching or sermon.
Remember Apostle Paul’s words in Corinthians:
1 Corinthians 2:4-5
4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
If your pastor does not have power from God, search for a pastor who walks in the Spirit and power of God. Accept nothing less, because then you can say on the day of judgement; you truly did seek after God. See Matthew 7:7.
The person who walks with God might not look presentable (John the Baptist’s clothes were made from camel hair), speak in pleasing manners (the Apostle Paul said he was ineloquent), have a title or a big worship team but he will have anointing from God to deliver and heal in the name of Jesus.
Flee the comfortable trendy Church that has good music but not the power of God in it. Instead, find a true body of believers who properly obey the Holy Bible. You will know them because they will have power from God to cast out unclean spirits and heal the sick in the name of Jesus.
If you are a pastor reading this and you do not have the power to drive out unclean spirits and heal the sick, I strongly suggest you seek God earnestly and obey the Bible in its entirety because otherwise God’s anointing will never come upon you. You are held to a higher standard and if you mislead His people you will be judged strictly; see James 3:1.
The key to salvation for me
After 25 years spent wandering, God decided to bring me to Him by giving me a new heart of flesh that hated sin. I finally understood what it is to have a personal relationship with the living God.
There is no secret. It was right in front of me all along. Jesus said it plainly:
23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
Once I learnt to deny myself the things which the flesh desires everything fell into place and made sense. Though we are saved by grace, we are called to take up our cross daily, to crucify our flesh.
We are then called to follow Jesus through the Holy Spirit, who is the righteous spirit of God within us. It is the part of us that wants to be obedient to God and this part constantly wars against the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
The grace that God gave us is the power to overcome the flesh and the unclean spirits that dwell within us. Do not be surprised that I say Christians can have unclean spirits. Read what Paul wrote to the early Christians:
5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?
6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Resist the devil continually so that he flees from us. Every angry, lustful, prideful and sinful thought comes from the devil. Rebuke those thoughts continually and deny your flesh. This is the meaning of taking up our cross daily.
You are not alone in your battle. God fights for you but you must claim the victory. See this on how to remove spiritual bondages from yourself, break curses and pray for protection.
I starting writing this page on 13 November 2014. As of 01 July 2015, Jesus is now using me to cast out demons and people are getting healed. Praise God. He is real. Everything you read in the bible is real. I’m actually experiencing the bible. Here are some of my deliverance videos FYI. It’s been an incredible journey and the really exciting part is looking towards eternity with Jesus Christ. If you need prayer, feel free to contact me here.
