"In The Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with GOD, and the Word was GOD. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made." (John 1:1-3)
" In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not."
Hello My name is Michael Siemer. I was Born & Raised in Columbus, Ohio. I was a Pothead & a Drunk until the Day I became Born-Again. At the age of 24 years old, I heard an Evangelist say: “If you are not sure, that if you were to die right now that you would be going to Heaven, I want you to say this Prayer with me right now and mean it with all your Heart. I got on my knees and Asked JESUS CHRIST to come into My Life, Forgive Me and become My Lord and Savior. The following Day, it dawned on me that I had gone for a day without drinking. I said in my heart, "wow, I didn't have a drink all day long, I don't need that no more.
Then the Marijuana left. I was growing an expensive breed of pot called: Skunkbud. I started contemplating how to get rid of it. I rolled up joint and said to myself: "This is my last Joint" and it was some 30 years ago. I still had Pot growing scattered out in various places, but I determined in my heart to never go back. Right away a friend of mine on a Job site, fired up a joint of Sensimilla, (which is an rare expensive breed of Marijuana) and he blew it in my face and said: "You want to hit this man?" He was mocking me. He knew that I had just asked JESUS into my life. I immediately said back to Him: "No way Man!" I turned around and walked away saying with excitement: "Thank You LORD JESUS!"
For the first time in My Life I had Power to say No to Sin! Real Power! and the Voice of The Holy Spirit was given to me, to Guide me and Lead me.
John 1:12-13 say: ""But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." This is clearly speaking of a second birth, not of your Father and Mother, But of God's Spirit coming inside of You, when You ask JESUS CHRIST to come inside Your Heart, Trust Him with Your Life, and Believe that he has redeemed You back to GOD by shedding His Blood on The Cross for Your sake.
At that time, around 7/7/1987 JESUS came into my life, gave me the HOLY SPIRIT, set me free from Alcohol, Drugs, Nicotine and allot of other Sins. For the past 30 some years He has kept me and has Blessed My Family and I in every way! (Psalm 1:1-6)
The Word Disciple is found in Scripture speaking of JESUS Disciples as the Greek Word: (Mathetes) which means: a learner, a pupil. The Greek word Matheteuo is also used referring to JESUS Disciples which means: ( To become a Pupil, to Disciple, enroll as scholar, be disciple, instruct, teach. )
This Means, not only Does JESUS want You to be His Disciple, He wants You to Go and make other Disciples, who will in turn make other Disciples instructing and teaching them to observe whatsoever things He has Commanded us. A start is to fill Yourself with God's Word, and Pour Your Heart out to Him in Prayer. (Not a dead religious prayer) but Commune with Him as You would Your friend. Give Him Thanks and Praise for all He is doing in Your Life. Be sensitive to hear His Voice, because He still Speaks to His Children. JESUS said: " My Sheep hear My Voice, andI know them and they Follow Me." (John 10:27)
A True Disciple of JESUS must first be Born of GOD, and have received The HOLY SPIRT, by Calling upon, Believing in and Receiving The LORD JESUS CHRIST into ones Heart.
Romans 10:13 says: "Whosoever shall Call upon The Name of The LORD Shall be saved.
Romans 10:9-10 says: "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thy heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved, For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation."
The HOLY SPIRT is Given to All that Call upon JESUS. Be sensitive to His Voice and follow His instruction, He will bring to remembrance all the JESUS has spoken and Lead You on this Great Adventure of this incredible Life In JESUS.

Carrying The Cross through Jerusalem 7/93
Carrying The Cross through Cana, Joppa and Nazareth;
I was Greatly welcomed by everyone in Nazareth, Kicked out of Tiberius. Joppa wasnt to bad, some Moslems looked a little shooken by my presence. JESUS walked beside me the whole way.
Carrying The Cross through South Africa was a Great Blessing, The People there were so open to the Gospel and treated a tract like it was Gold. The LORD had already prepared their hearts. Our LORD allowed me to pray with many to Become Born-Again
Preaching on Campus at the University of Florida in Gainesville, with Brother William Taylor ^above. Also joining me at times, is My Daughter Mary Elizabeth, Brian O'Connell, Richard Martin and Rick Nash.
^This is what it looks like when we first show up. Then once one bad guy tries to challenge us they will swarm all around us to hear.
At times We will have 50 to even 100 students swarmed around us debating with each of us over My Jesus Sign. I call it My Fish Bait Sign. It fishes them out of the wood work. We will hit Campus before noon. We will Stay until dark, and the same kids who have been trying to Argue against the Gospel all day, will take to us, and will ask us why we have to leave, and "When are you coming back again. We pray with many, Sword Fight and make Folly out of the Lies of this present day, and everyone gets to hear a Clear Message of the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST. It's really good ground!
They swarm all around us, and are Truly Hungry for answers, like sheep without a shepherd. This is a group gathering around the Cross in Columbus Ohio, at a drunken 4th of July Party that Our Lord has had me preach at now for about 16 years. (Its called: Red White & Boom)
Preaching on Bourbon Street as a backdrop to Nola.com's Live BourboCam. The LORD gave me this Idea many years ago. I Flip to a different Sign every couple of minutes with a Salvation Messages to the Viewers on the Net. Among the many signs I flip, one says: "E-Mail this Street Preacher at: firstname.lastname@example.org and as a result I got over a hundred email responses in a few days, and continued preaching to them Via the Web.
