“Only problem was that instead of running to my Heavenly Father I was running to Mr. Coo. For the Scriptures read,
‘So don’t be afraid, O Jacob my servant; don’t be dismayed, O Israel; for I will bring you home again from distant lands, and your children from their exile. They shall have rest and quiet in their own land, and no one shall make them afraid. For I am with you and I will save you, says Almighty Yahuwah. Even if I utterly destroy the nations where I scatter you, I WILL NOT EXTERMINATE YOU; I WILL PUNISH YOU, YES- YOU WILL NOT GO UNPUNISHED. Jeremiah 30:10-11′ (LBV. My own capitalizing.)
“But I didn’t know the Scriptures. Anyhow by the time I arrived at New Orleans I had died a thousand deaths and I had made just as many resolutions.
“At one point in the road I got lost and wound up in a desert road. It was a rainy and dreary day and I had no idea of where I was or how to get out of there.
“I kept driving though I was scared out of my wits and with only the vultures for company. There was not a single soul driving on that dessert road for miles and miles.
“I cried to Almighty Yahuwah, I said, `Master, if I die over here, the vultures are going to get me before anybody can find me! Please Almighty Yahuwah, get me out of here! I’ll never go away from You again.’ And before I knew it, I was back in the main highway.
“It seems to me now, as I look back, that it rained almost all the way from Vegas to New Orleans. It was a dreadful and long ride, the kind that one never wants to take again.
“That trip was, truly, the heavenly whipping that got my attention and delivered me from Satan’s open territory. But I still did not learn my lesson.
“For I did not perceive the knowledge of Almighty Yahuwah, the knowledge of the corruption of the flesh, and the knowledge of the way of the cross by faith.
“Although I changed my direction, I still turned towards the wrong way. And instead of going to Church for help, I went to my psychiatrist. Instead of drawing nigh to Almighty Yahuwah’s world, I drew nigh to Mr. Coo’s world.
“I drew to Mr. Coo’s world which is the way of the moral and good world, the good life of the world. But still, the world.
