WHOEVER ACKNOWLEDGES ME BEFORE MEN

Matthew 10:32 “Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.”

Years ago a worker in the embassy had written the expiry date of my visa for 11-10-82. I assumed the visa was good until November 10.
As I was returning to the African country where I worked, I was shocked my passport was confiscated. The officers threatened to put me in jail for trying to enter the country on an expired visa. The official said my visa had expired on October 11, 1982.
I didn’t know at that time that throughout many countries in the world, the day is put before the month.
The officer shouted at me and said, “Confess that you did this on purpose.”
“I confess that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Lord. Please forgive me for making a mistake and misinterpreting the visa date.”
If you can’t confess to an offence…
Confess Jesus Christ as Savior and acknowledge him before men.
God will take care of you in those situations.
Praise God He always took care of me.
