Jesus Appeared To Me – Former Atheist Ronald Dabdoub
Ronald Dabdoub shares incredible story of the encounter that led him to Jesus Christ.
As an atheist, Ronald wanted to know the truth about God. For 30 days he asked God to prove his existence with more than words. Days later, he had a vision of Jesus Christ, and that was the start of a new life for him.
I was looking, you know, what I think God is, I think God is like something the government makes up to make people scared into not breaking the law. Like even though … yes you can get away with this perfect crime, but you don’t really get away with it because the all-knowing God sees and knows.
I thought that it was a mind control concept sort of. And with all the scientific, with all the new scientific research coming out and the evolution process and all this. I started researching that. And when you start listening and research into people who have beliefs that there is no God and it’s all you hear. Your head gets filled with that belief.
That’s basically where I was. One day I just started thinking God are You real. Why would You not show yourself to me if You’re real ? And I’d say God, You know what, You know why I don’t believe You’re real ? I’m going to tell You why. Because I see evil people who don’t care about anybody. And they have billions of dollars money. They can never touch, never spend. They just watch it stockpile. There’s kids not eating tonight. Where are you ? How do I believe in you ? You’re the all-knowing, all-loving and all caring.
Well this is what I see evil people who are prospering. And I see young innocent children who are going to bed hungry, some will die of starvation. And I’m wondering where you are? You know if You are real and please show Yourself to me I want to know.
And this is the other thing God if you’re real, who is the real God ?Because as am i lucky to be born in the place where people say Jesus is God ? Because if I was born elsewhere we’re believing Allah SWT. If I was a Jew, I wouldn’t believe that my savior has come yet. I could believe in Buddha you know dag on. I could believe in so many of these gods, depending on where I was born, what culture I was brought up in.
So are you telling me that by where you’re born decides if you if ou serve the right God or not. So not only God do I want to know if you’re real. I want to know who the real God is. And Here I am I’m I’m telling You that if You’re real I want to know, And you know, I need something more than words. Because if someone tries to talk to me about it, it’s just words to me. That’s just them trying to push their beliefs on to me. Just if I want somebody to believe something I believe I would try to persuade theme that. I need something more than words.
God you know I do. I did this every day all day for 30 days for eight hours a day. God if you’re real show yourself to me ? God if you real show yourself to me ? Give me something God. I need to know. I need to know something. I’m calling out right now. If you’re real please please do something to let me know you here. Because the way I’m living, I need a guy, I need … I need … I need some divine help.
It’s about two o’clock in the morning I wake up, because I have to go to the bathroom. And I was in it laying down in a position flat on my back sort of like this. Except when I woke up. I couldn’t move anything. I had no control of my body. I’m trying to scream help but I can’t talk. I could only move my eyeballs and I’ve never felt so much fear. And I’m like this is the strangest experience that has ever happened to me in my life, what happened.
So I instantly start researching it. And it’s called “sleep paralysis” and an ancient time it’s called “the demon that stands on one’s chest”. Demons will attack when someone either does intense research of aliens or plays with the Ouija board or if they make an advancement towards the kingdom of heaven. Well I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior so I would say I made an advancement towards the kingdom of heaven. But I said I don’t want to accept ancient times, I’m a modern Western culture. What does modern science have to say about what happened to me. And through my research what science comes up with is your body is sleeping but your consciousness is awake. So I’m like so science is telling me this separate.
It’s early in the morning the sun’s just coming up and I’m looking at how pretty to different colors in the sky is. And it’s like everything in the world looks different to me this day. It’s like … it’s like … I was living life in 3d except I didn’t have the glasses. And this day I had the 3d glasses. I can see intelligence in every cloud. I just start clapping I’m like God you know this is beautiful everything, you know, thank you so much.
Well as a past this field I look to the right out of nowhere they formed themselves two of them right next to each other tornadoes about 12 feet tall. And just spinning right next to each other – They formed on a nothing – tornado clouds spun up and then dissipated. And I’m like yes God is real …. I’m cheering … I’m I mean … I’m. So I can’t tell you the excitement like. God is real and He’s revealing himself to me look into the this day. I’m trying to work a look into a tree and the leaves form the face of Jesus Christ. It’s just like everywhere I went everything it did all I saw was God … God … God.
And I’m like I’m gonna lose my mind ? Am I going crazy ? I mean what is happening to me. I want to know what’s happening with me. I don’t understand what’s going on. I know you’re gonna find this hard to believe but this is what happens to me. My brother bought me a Bible, becoming a Christian. It was a present from him to me. So I’ll open the Bible in my room. The pages turned himself. I’m not making this up yeah. I’ll polygraph test this. And go down guy and it says, “If you look for Me for like hidden treasure, If you seek me for gold…” I don’t remember the word for word but if you really … really look for Me and you … you will find Me and I will reveal Myself to you. And you will have the knowledge of God. Seek me and you will find me.
And that’s what happened. I earnestly seek God with all my heart and soul, got my eyes closed I’m laying in bed and I’m just relaxed. And I start having experiences. I’m … like … I’m dreaming except I’m wide awake. I know I’m laying in my bed except I’m slot … I’m start flying through space. The wind is blowing in my face. I know, I’m laying in my bed though. I’m wide awake but I’m enjoying this. So I’m just going with it. And then so then um then the wind is just like the wind in my room is is just like terror. It’s like so strong. It has to open my eyes. Well … over my bed is the curtains to the window … the curtains are blowing all up in the air. The ceiling fans not on so I have four walls around me where is all this wind coming from.
Well that tornado cloud that I told you that I was previously was like a small woman came into my room. And when a smoke cleared it was like a ghost of Jesus Christ. And He manifested into a human form except He was, it’s like … He glowed, He just glowed is off all I know how to say.
And then He went back into like a spirit form a ghost form and just disappeared. That whole experience lasted two or three seconds. I know what happened. I was there well then I closed my eyes, I go back into, you know, just meditating and just relax and listen into, you know, like the ocean, the wave, stuff like that.
Well I’ve never had a real vision in my life. I’ve heard of them in the Bible’s, because I’m reading the Bible two and three hours a night at this time. And all of a sudden I’m live at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The first thing I see is Jesus hanging on a cross but then it goes to before He’s on the cross and He gets wet across His back.
And I just see His back. I see Him get whipped in the back and I see His back split open. And the vision goes away. So what that told me, cuz I hear no voices, nothing’s ever spoken where I hear it. But I took that as when I called out God who are you who’s the real God I want to know. The only person that came to me is Jesus Christ nobody else.
