Back Story: WHAT DID JESUS SAY by Rev. Terry Allan Christian #Christian #nonfiction #backstory

Back Story: WHAT DID JESUS SAY by Rev. Terry Allan Christian

I was 23 yrs. old in the middle of a ‘near death’ moment when I met the Lord in a dream. Jesus asked me, do you want to stay here or return and I asked Him what I’d do if I returned and I saw myself in front of thousands of people sharing HIS WORDS. I then told

Jesus, I wanted to return and woke up.

When I woke up, I was still a high school drop out after leaving a violently dysfunctional home at 16. I also stuttered so bad I couldn’t say 5 words in a row without people laughing and mocking me. After this near-death experience I would go onto to read over 500 books on personal development and become a Professional Speaker delivering over 2500 presentations before being called away to start a online Ministry.

When I asked the Lord what He wanted me to do in Ministry that hasn’t already been done, Jesus said, tell them what I told them and nothing more. I was then instructed to compose a book outlining what Jesus said without adding any personal opinions or comments.

It would take me 12yrs to get published and 5 more years before I was healthy enough to talk about the book. I had been experiencing ‘Job-Like’ tribulations from the very day I got up to do (what I thought was) final editing.

My father would die on the day I began final editing, so I returned to help my mother since I was the oldest son. It had been 18yrs since I was in her home because my dad wouldn’t allow me to visit her at home. She would die 3yrs later and I was there at her deathbed breathing in her last exhausted breathe.

After her death, I returned to my book editing and I got injured helping a friend and could hardly walk for 2yrs, then came the worst case of Bladder Cancer the doctors said they’d ever seen and they gave me 3yrs to live unless they removed my bladder and attached it to my outside- wow-
The book suddenly was the least of my concerns and I decided to go for what I later called THE LIFE WALK. I created a 21day sabbatical experience where I prayed, fasted, ate biblical foods mentioned in Genesis adding fish while I read everything Jesus Said about healing in the 4 Gospels. And when I returned a month later to see my doctors they released me ‘cancer free’ and it’s been that way for 10yrs now. God gets the Glory while I put in the effort.

Now the back injury was resolved by surgery, the bladder cancer was divinely healed by God and then came emergency throat surgery the month my book was released and I lost my Hollywood smile and the ability to properly talk publicly for 5yrs. (Wow again)

Today, I live in Negril Jamaica where I came for the Life Walk experience. I counsel Christians worldwide online while helping the local schools where I teach LEADERSHIP SKILLS to the parents and speak to the children too. I’m 68 and feel 48 and expect to spend the rest of my life in Jamaica.

In closing I learned one thing from all this that JOB didn’t know at the time of his tribulations- God was allowing JOB to be tested for a bigger reason than JOB and I accepted whatever happened to me was with Gods approval so I considered it a test and not a penalty.

I am among men most richly blessed and whatever I become will be the result of Gods Blessings combined with my loving obedience to what Jesus Said.

In His Love, I serve.

Rev. Terry A. Christian 

About the Author

Since dedicating his life to Jesus at the age of 23, Terry Allan Christian has been reading the red lettered version of the 4 Gospels as recorded in the KJV Bible. Even though Terry reads the whole Bible, his primary focus is on the words of Jesus and the example of His actions.

Terry grew up in a violent dysfunctional family where he quit school at 16 and left home. He stuttered so bad he could only say 3-5 words in a row. His family and friends mocked him and that caused much stress in his early life.

At the age of 23, he had a near death experience and in which he had a dream. In this dream, he was told that one day he would be a teacher for Jesus. Needless to say, he was scared at first because of his stuttering and lack of structured education however, he always had a child-like faith and trust in Jesus as Lord.

After the dream, he was soon hired by the Dale Carnegie Organization and trained in sales and public speaking, where he met a man who taught him how to visually read. During the next few years Terry read several hundred books on the subject of personal growth.

At the age of 30, Terry became a professional Motivational Speaker and Executive Trainer and over the next 20 years he would deliver more than 2,500 presentations to private and public audiences across America and Canada.

Several years ago, Terry retired as a public speaker after feeling the Holy Spirit redirecting his life. He was led to do what Jesus told him many years earlier. After researching the 4 Gospels he composed the book What Did Jesus Say: The Seven Messages from the Master, using only the Words spoken by Jesus as recorded in the 4 Gospels, without adding any personal comments or opinions.

As in all God called missions it took longer, cost more and challenged him to the edge of his faith. He would later say, he had to read the Book of Job just to understand why this was happening to him and was he being tested or penalized. In the end, he was being tested and by the grace of God, he prevailed.

Now after 12 years of study, obedience, difficulty and struggle, this book is now available in Paperback, eBook, Audio Book and Kindle.

Today, Author and Counselor, Rev. Terry Christian is founder of Foundations for Life ‘Online’ Ministries and he presently lives at Negril Jamaica where he does local missionary work in schools and churches while counseling Christians worldwide online thru his program Christians Helping Christians.

Negril, Jamaica is where Rev. Christian went to fast & pray while seeking divine healing for Bladder Cancer. His doctors gave him 3yrs to live so he created a healing sabbatical and after fasting & praying, and walking the beach for 21 days, he returned to his Doctors and they released him ‘cancer free’.

Terry calls this program: The Life Walk –aka- The Miracle Walk and now offers this ‘restoration’ program online or in Negril, for everyone seeking Life, Health or Marriage Restoration.
Terry believes: WITH GOD, all things are possible, all the time, wherever we live and at every given moment, when we pray, believing.



About the Book 

This incredible book organizes the teachings of Jesus using only the words spoken by Jesus and nothing more. The book puts readers into an imagined walk with Jesus on the beach, allowing readers to hear over 500 passages spoken by Him as recorded in the 4 Gospels.

“I was asked one time, where did this book idea come from?” says Christian.“Well, when I was suddenly called away from motivational speaking at the top of my business career, I knew, I was being called to do what Jesus told me, 30yrs earlier. When I asked Jesus what He wanted me to do that wasn’t already being done, Jesus said; ‘Tell them, what I told them and nothing more, add no comments or opinions.’ With those instructions, I composed What Did Jesus Say: The Seven Messages from the Master containing over 500 scriptures spoken only by Jesus to those who loved and followed Him and I’ve added no opinions or comments. Whoever reads this book will know and understand what Jesus said to those who loved and followed Him and what’s expected from those who call Him their Lord and Savior.

Featuring the “best of the best” of what Jesus said, this book is a ‘one of a kind’. The scriptures, stripped of everything save for the words spoken by Jesus, have been composed into seven primary messages and serves as a daily Teaching Devotional.
