Testimony Tuesday: Jesica Harris’s Porn Batle

Welcome to this edition of Testimony Tuesday. I want today to talk with you about Jesica Harris’s story. She’s a blogger and has a book out called The Beggar’s Daughter which can be found here (for Amazon), unfortunately it cannot be found on Bookshare for those that would rather not buy books on such things as Apple Books or Amazon, and lastly and unfortunately, it cannot be found on Apple’s iBooks app either to be bought.

Now without further adue, here is the interview. Also, Jesica Harris can be found here and you can sign up to get her blog posts delivered to your inbox toward the end of the page. Just scroll down to where it tells you to type your email a.ress in and you can sign up there. This is for you rather you be a porn addict or just a curious seeker wanting to know more.

A Short Testimony from my Grandpa/Pastor

I want to tell you a story from my Grandpa/Pastor. He’s told this many times at Church, but I think it is a testimony which will get you thinking.

Do you ever hear preachers talking about “the Grace of God,” and think, “Yes! I can do whatever I want and ask God to forgive me?” Well, so did he. I can’t remember all of the details exactly as he tells them. He’d do a better job at relaying the details, but one day he started looking at pictures on the internet (I think he said he was doing something and happened to look at them, but again, I cannot remember exactly). This was after he’d been at a Bible Study one day and they started talking about grace and as I related previously, he thought he could do whatever he wanted and just ask for God’s forgiveness afterward. Well, at another Bible Study, he was about to teach the group. However, a Philipino lady came up to him in front of the group and said, “Mickey Banks! God wanted me to talk to you about them pictures you have been looking at on the internet.” He asked her to pray with him and ask God for forgiveness, and they went on with the study. Well, weeks later, he was doing something and this thing popped up on the computer, which said, “Hi! I haven’t seen you in a while. Where have you been?” Surprise! Surprise! It was the pictures he previously had been looking at. Later on at another Bible Study, just before he began to preach, that same lady walked up to him in front of the whole group and said yet again, “Mickey Banks! Mickey Banks! God wanted me to talk to you about them pictures you have been looking at on the internet.” He said, “Lady, I have no idea what you are talking about,” but later confessed that yes, he had been looking at them and repented. When he tells this story, he says that he thought, “If I do that again, that Philipino lady one day will come up to me while I’m preaching at the pulpit and in front of everyone say, ×Pastor Mickey! God wanted me to talk to you about them pictures you’ve been looking at on the internet.” He has not looked at another picture since.

I understand that everyone’s testimony, like you’ve seen in the interview above and in previous Testimony Tuesday blogs I’ve posted aren’t so easy, but I wanted to tell you this one because I figured that this would help other people where these interviews might not, because these interviews still emphasize on “the grace of God,” and you may still think that you can do whatever you want and God will forgive you. In a sense, that’s true, but God will embarrass you just like Grandpa was embarrassed. Thank you so much for reading these Testimony Tuesday blogs. Please post your feedback rather it be questions, criticisms, blog ideas, etc. God bless!
