Next mission trip “lift up jesus in america”: August 2011
Please, help us to lift up Jesus in America. He is the only reason why God does bless America.
Personal Testimony of Pastor Sergei Timokin (testimony video-film)
I became a Christian in atheistic KGB soviet regime of Russia by falling in love with rock-opera Jesus Christ Superstar in 70s. USSR was totally closed up country for any Bible idea, West idea and Good News. In spite of that, millions of youth in Russia as around the World loved Western rock music. In my 20s I did too, and I even played rock’n’roll (still do it for Jesus only!) Short wave radio “BBC” brought this music to my radio receiver, secretly covered in the closet since everything from the West was prohibited - no Bibles, no anything good about freedom, ...just Evil Iron Curtain around with dead Marks&Lenin doctrines.
Jesus Christ Superstar, the stones cried out!
I did not know English that time but I just heard Jesus Name repeatedly in the rock-opera. I tried to check it out. I asked my folks but no one really could tell me about Jesus. Russians do not know a lot of Him. But in the rock-opera it was a Jesus story! And I wanted to know the original Jesus story! He claimed to be God! WoW!
I was under Russian mafia attacking.
It came together along with my personal circumstances of almost dying in the Hospital as I was under Russian mafia attacking. I wore American jeans, looked for freedom. KGB mafia did not like such a person. They decided to kill me. I needed God for life physically! Praise God, He saved me from death that night out of mafia’s killing.
I was rescued in a miracle way. They injured me deadly and did dig me up to the soil as a dead person, put me under the snow, covered my grave by the fallen leaves. But in that lonely forest Someone found me, uncovered me and brought my unconscious bloody body to my mother’s hands who prayed to the Unknowing God that night. She called the Ambulance and was amazed how the strange driver knew her name and home address.
Even doctors was shocked that I still alive out of that grave. Police officer said, they way they wounded you meant they did it to murder, your eyes and brain are smashed.
I needed God physically, mentally. I needed God to save me out of my sin, which covered me. I needed God to bring my mind back together to know Him intellectually and spiritually. And He showed up! Himself.
Original story of Jesus. My prison years.
Making long story short, just after the Hospital I met a guy who played that rock-opera Jesus Christ Superstar with his guitar, he was a born again Christian, had the New Testament, told me original story of Jesus, led me to the Lord and to the church to be baptized. One morning Jesus came to me in great light. I was lifted up to the ceiling level with unspeakable felling of joy and holiness. God told me to lift Him up like that.
Our band The Trumpet Call invented a Christian rock in USSR to tell Russians the Gospel story of Jesus. It became a legend in the Nation as the first Russian Christian rock-band back in early 80s. Voice of America, BBC and many other radio stations broadcasted our songs few years when we were locked up in prison for being preachers. When M. Gorbachev came to Power he liberated me. I met him in person just recently, touched his hand and prayed for him. He agreed to promote March for Jesus which I led in those years of 2000.
With M. Gorbachev together we made National Symposium On Faith, named it after 9/11/2001
Rumors led to more popularity of the Ministry
In any city I go in Russia to preach, there are people who testify they were saved because the very first time they heard Jesus story via our rock-band The Trumpet Call on a radio. Plus, in late 80s, National TV along with KGB film-makers made a film about The Trumpet Call, they fabricated the case and blame me to be a public enemy, American (CIA) agent. Millions of copies of soviets magazines and newspapers were spread with same lie. But all of these rumors led to more popularity of us! This film was shown several times to 280 mln Russian people, on prime TV time!! Historians estimates that millions of people in Russia heard the Trumpet Call in late 80-s. God prepared the time to breakthrough in Russia in 90s to buried USSR atheistic evil power.
After my liberation I do the work of God again. God called me to start a church. It was the first mega church in Russia in 90s. Few thousands signed up for church membership. We rent a church hall for 1000 seats and crusade halls for several thousands, including biggest stadiums. More that 10 000 people got salvation just in our church altar on Sundays. Many churches came out of us and our Bible Schools during these 20 years of the Christ Church. Daily I preached in Russian radio Theos and TV channel 40.
What’s up, What is the Dream
RUSSIA. Now we moved our headquarters in the country area to maintain a cowboy church in almost secret place. Evangelical churches are at risk in Putin’s Russia to be stopped by the government and Orthodox state church step by step. My today’s call is to do the largest Web Resource on Jesus fro Russian people, using web and online TV technology to bring Jesus to every Russian home in the World who has a computer. It costly project but powerful 3rd Millennium way to help His souls, till Jesus return.
We already work several years to publish live web-site of Jesus Christ www.UucycXpuctoc.ru
with online pastoring and churching, Bible study, and all what God taught us.
150 000 visitors we have just in few months.
24/7 call center and other ministries are our plan for millions Russian souls online.
AMERICA. My first love on earth is America as a Christian homeland. I am called to minister for American people. I do it in many states for almost 20 years, crossed the ocean more than 80 times to lift up Jesus in USA. United Saints of America is the Headquarters of Zion, the God’s Mountain, His People united in Christ
God bless America!
