  • I don't think y'all understand. I heard God through Michael. When he illustrated Jesus writing on the ground with the woman - the things that he said - I felt them. "This is gonna pass. I know you messed up but I still love you. I know that everybody in the world has counted you out. But I'm counting on you (he believes in you) ...You're special to me. Everything can change I promise... " I felt those words. I felt God speak to me with those words and I just broke down. Y'all may not agree with everything this church dies, or what Michael Todd does, or this preaching, but there is no denying Jesus is here and Jesus is with Him. Thank you Pastor Mike. Keep walking with God, no matter how hard it - because you are TRULY changing lives. 🙌💛

  • Hi Pastor Mike. Hello Transformation family. Thank you so much for making this series. It was a difficult watch, but I have always prided myself on being a good student. Somehow this sermon has penetrated my heart to forgive a person of big influence in my life. It took me years to get here and I am so okay with that. I am beyond proud of myself for being gentle with myself and allowing the process to take place. There are many other people that need forgiveness within my heart and in my action. I understand that they too will be a process and TIME will work with me and for me. Nonetheless, I am so proud of my first step. Thank you for these pillars. I may have to put these pillars on my wall in my room to remind me of the things I need to do, to continue to keep the lines of communication open with my Father and those around me. Thank you so much and God bless you and the team!!!!

  • This message was tailored for me I have a big vision to reach others for Christ But I’ve had bitterness from betrayal in the beginning of the year And because of this I have mental health break downs and a series of pain and I feel like the man in the parable who had a huge debt and was forgiven by the king but when is own brother had an offense against him he throw him in jail (Matthew 18:21-35) I feel like if I don’t make it thru this I won’t be able to see the vision Today I prayed those that hurt me and that God would be God in their lives and bless them with the word of God Thank you again big brother for dropping another impactful message There’s a number I reach to help me with this process because I need to exit out of Lo Debar (Message the beginning of the year)

  • People will sell out and do anything for money. This is not saving souls and bringing others to true repentance and edifying to the true word of God. Follow Gods word your salvation depends on it. He speaks from his own heart and not the word of God 🙌🏾📖♥️🙏🏾 Many are called and few are chosen
