QTP: For those who may not be familiar, can you introduce yourself to our readers?
Level: My name is Rene Level Martinez and I’m a minister of the gospel, I wanna share a brief testimony on my life, as a kid i didn’t have a father figure in my life, my mom was on the streets addicted to drugs, she was an alcoholic. She was part of a religion known as santeria which is a very dark world, I remember being 5 years old and them sacrificing a goat and pouring the blood over my head, I started to see demons not long after that, I saw them my whole life and was controlled by them. I got into the streets as early as 9 and started breaking into houses and cars, I walked into a gang at the age of 13, One night we got into a high speed chase in a stolen car and we crashed into a man that died on impact, i was in a comma for 3 weeks with a 5% chance of survival, when I woke up I had broken bones all over my body and I was facing manslaughter charges, I was 14 at the time.  When I recovered I didn’t learn my lesson, I got right back into the streets and started gang banging really hard, ended up homeless with my mom and had to rob to eat, one night I found my mom half dead overdosed on pills with her wrist slit, when she got better she ended up meeting Jesus Christ and left to a retreat for a weekend, in that one weekend my mom stopped all drugs and alcohol! instantly!! but for me it was to late all I ever knew was the streets, ended up in Juvenile Hall at the age of 16 for attempted murder, got sentenced to a juvenile facility. I became the leader of the Loc’ed Syndicate Gang at 17 years old in Miami Dade County, I was active for over two decades and had a road to Demascus experience one night, Jesus Christ spoke to me!!! Like when Saul became Paul! not long after that I met a man of God that gave me the true word and told me to get baptized in the NAME of JESUS CHRIST according to Acts 2:38, and let me tell you, a shift in my life happened that day! I never been the same, i got this fire in me! and now I go from hood to hood, project to prison preaching repentance and remission of sins in the might name of JESUS CHRIST!!!
QTP: After watching your documentary “The Warrior Level” I was truly encouraged. I commend you for taking such a bold stand for Christ and having the courage to start a new life. How did the documentary get started?
Level: When i was a kid we came up on a camera and I started recording stuff in the hood, a lot of gang footage, and underground fight footage from when I was bare-knuckle fighting for money. One day I gotta vision of turning my life story into a documentary…
QTP: Congratulations on being awarded two awards at the International Christian Film Festival for 2018. That must have been a very humbling and proud moment for you.

Lighthouse

I don’t think I’m alone in this, but it doesn’t even matter if I am or not. I am saddened, repulsed, disgusted and disappointed on a daily basis. At least for a moment. That moment happens when I open any given social media and see human behavior at an all time grotesque state. Unfortunately now in a digital world, you are slammed on a daily basis witnessing tragedy after tragedy, your eyes cannot help but see ignorance and hatred everywhere.

I know for myself personally as a believer in Yeshua, Jesus Christ I’m supposed to know these things would happen and I’m supposed to allow the Holy Spirit to lead me and guide me in these times, I’m supposed to let the love of God shine in me like a light for those around me in darkness and to be honest with you? Sometimes I want to quit. I get so disgusted every time I open a social media platform, every time I hear about another school shooting, see someone getting killed unjustly by law enforcement, watching people post some of the most vicious and hateful words I’ve ever read, and the children… My God the children. I can’t stomach one more senseless death of a child.

I had a moment the other day quietly by myself with God and just broke down like “Lord… how? How am I supposed to do this? I’m trying to do what you told me to do and I can’t “. I sat there quiet and an image of a Lighthouse flashes across my mind and then that quiet still voice, that has the capability of drowning you in perfect peace that you can only relate to if you have a personal relationship with God said “a lighthouse is most effective in the darkness.” I sat there and cried. Legit cried. The darker it is, the brighter the lighthouse light becomes.

So I decided to share this because believers have different positions, jobs, titles, but ALL have the same assignment. Your job may be inside a church, out in the street, at the grocery store, in your blog, at your office, in the mall, on instagram … it doesn’t matter. Don’t compare yourself to other believers, don’t get distracted from your job because you’re busy debating someone else’s job. We all get weary and yes, sometimes it “appears” that the wickedness is winning and there’s a lot of people who call themselves believers and their social media feeds make it impossible to tell them apart from people who don’t know Christ at all…. BUT we were told these things would happen (2nd Timothy 3:1-9). This is not the time to get weary (Revelation 12:11) it’s not the time to argue denomination or name translations (1 Corinthians 12:12). One day soon, people will be so tired of the state of the world that they will welcome with open arms one world order and a one world religion. If you turned off people’s phones and debit cards tonight, they’d line up by the thousands in the morning to take a microchip if it meant getting access to their money and the internet. (Revelation 13:16)

So my strength is renewed in this and I hope this will encourage those of you who have also become weary, they don’t have to like you. They don’t have to agree with you, they don’t have to listen, and they don’t have to believe. If you saw them crossing the street and a car was coming, you would yell , WATCH OUT! At that point they can make a decision to watch out or keep going. With something so precious as a soul and where you’ll spend eternity, I would never want to see anyone I knew or ever had any interaction with, standing before God being denied access to Heaven and seeing me there and asking why didn’t I tell them the truth. What would be a good enough excuse? Because I was afraid they wouldn’t like me anymore? What excuse or apology could I give? I can live with someone not liking me, I can live with people calling me names, I can live with someone disagreeing with me, but I don’t want to bear the burden of not telling them the truth.

So in whatever country, state, region, city, industry, or platform God has given to you personally? Be wise, win souls, and do not give up. It’s always darkest before dawn and someone, somewhere is looking for the light you carry.

I would say that I’m lost for words, but we were told these things would happen. May God have mercy upon his soul. For the pride of life comes before the fall of man. (Proverbs)

Revelation 22:18-20 King James Version (KJV)
18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

Enter-tain-ment

ENTER: to go inside, go within

TAIN: to possess or hold,

MENT: mental; the state or condition caused by an action; a concrete result

In its deepest and purest definition, “entertainment” means the concrete result of allowing something to enter into your mind and take possession of you.

Let that meaning really soak in for a moment.- Mack Major (Author of “DIVA, GODDESS, QUEEN: BREAKING THE POWERADE OF SOUL TIES, LUST AND SEXUAL DEMONS” www.edendecoded.com/books/diva-goddess-queen)
