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.

Thank God for all the sandpaper people in your life! They may scratch you, but eventually they’ll be useless once they’re worn out and you’ll end up smooth and polished!

The #CharlieCharlieChallenge

rs_600x600-150526150736-600-charlie-charlie-yes-no.ls.52615_copy

The “Charlie Challenge” has not only gone viral over social media, but it has also made major news headlines. Unfortunately, many have participated without knowing the “game” they are participating in is very similar to the use of a Ouija board and has an occult-like origin (similar to the “game” Bloody Mary). A few days ago when the game was at it’s peak, information began to surface that the game it’s self  was “an old Mexican tradition and a supernatural ritual that is used to contact a ghost.” Yesterday, I saw headlines from even the likes of Fox News titled that the social media craze was “trying to summon a demon” (all coming up on the first page of Google’s search engine) and when looking for similar headlines today about the same topic, all I have found on front page searches is comments and articles downplaying the game and rebuttals that there is no demon associated with the game (which I’m sure are written by the same people that believe Ouija is a harmless “game” as well) starting with the ever respected TIME (time.com). It is so important in this day and age for you to KNOW what things are and are not and you can’t rely on major media to be that final say. What you need to keep in mind that anything funneled through mass media is owned by a corporation and the wealthiest folks in this world are calling all of the shots for what you need to know and don’t need to know based upon what suits their needs basically because they think you’re stupid and as long as you buy, sell, go to work everyday and continue to support their “system” that’s all they care about. John 8:44 “For you are the children of your father the devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies” NLT

It’s so much deeper then “conspiracy theories” (which by the way, many of them turn out to be absolutely true i.e. Asbestos, Watergate, The Mafia, Manhattan Project, MK-Ultra, Operation Snow White just to name a few. http://www.infowars.com/33-conspiracy-theories-that-turned-out-to-be-true-what-every-person-should-know/) it’s about knowing the the truth according to the Word of God, because without it? You are going to fall in between the cracks of the world’s evils being tossed to and fro emotionally, financially, physically, and spiritually. You don’t have to agree with or believe something is real in order for it to be real or the truth.

Does anyone remember the last challenge that swept across the internet not too long ago? The “ice bucket” challenge? In the name of raising money for ALS? Although this challenge was launched in the name of raising money for ALS research (which includes stem cell research on aborted human fetuses)  the act of dumping fire or ice on yourself  is part of a occultism ritual used for “energy cleansing” or purification.

Hosea 4:6 “My people perish for lack of knowledge” The word “perish” means “to suffer death typically in a violent, sudden, or untimely way”. Why should you die for what you don’t know if all the knowing in the world is freely available to you right now?
