Hello. My name is Diana Ortiz. I am 9 years old. My parents read pastor Knoll’s dreams to me and my little brother. I always take time for reading and personal devotions, and I preach God’s message in different churches.
A short time ago, I was asked to preach, and my mom and I were looking for something adequate among the old topics. My mother prayed and fasted wanting to receive the topic from God, because the old ones did not seem adequate. She only had one titled, “God Is Angry.” She told me that she didn’t feel sure that a little girl should preach such a topic. She told me that it was her topic, but it was the only one that was ready and hadn’t been used.
I read the material. Then, after my mom did some deleting, I saw that it was material taken from the dream, “God Is Angry.” Then I asked my mom not to omit anything else, that everything was perfect, and that I could understand and explain it without any problem.
But there was something that was coming to my mind. That topic deserved a double consecration. I could not present such a strong message without first having a strong experience with Jesus myself. So, I decided to meet with Jesus for my personal devotions double the amount of time.
During one of those encounters, I asked my daddy Jesus if He wanted a special hymn. I sang one, then another, but no. Then, something took me to hymn 306, “I Am Thine, O Lord.” When I began to sing it, tears ran down my face, because I felt that I belong to Jesus and that I needed to listen to Him just at that moment, because He had been calling me for some time and I had not faced up to the responsibility of that calling. I felt that Jesus came; He hugged me, kissed my forehead, stroked my hair, and told me, “Come.” I cried and cried and sang.
About three days later, I called my mom. I spoke with her and covenanted before her and Jesus that I would serve Him forever. I told her that the dream, “God Is Angry,” led me to consecrate myself to Jesus. I told her that Jesus shed His blood for me, and that I must not slight His beautiful sacrifice. I told her that with God’s help, I would do all my part to be a better daughter. I commented to her that when I get to be a teenager, I don’t want to be like teenagers are. Some are selfish and disrespectful, and that now was the time to ask God and to dedicate more time to Him, so that when I get to be a teenager, I will be different. I shared with her that I felt sad if someone saw me and didn’t see Jesus in me. I told her that I was worried that God would be angry at me.
Then my mommy told me that everything that was happening to me was an answer to her prayers, because she felt uneasy about my tackling a topic such as I am going to preach, since I am only a young girl. But since Jesus came and called me, and as she saw my behavior, it confirmed in her that God wants me to preach that material. We prayed together and confirmed my covenant.
Dear Ernie, I hope you can come to the Dominican Republic soon, because my dream is to be baptized by the second John the Baptist. I told my mommy that I will be baptized when you come.
A big hug for all of you.
