Thomas E. Durst


I began a very wonderful spiritual journey in my childhood years with a vision when I was probably around 12 years old. I made no record of it at the time nor did I share it with anyone until many years later. In my testimony at the top of the list of essays you'll find the details of what was shown to me at that time and how life transforming it was. The purpose of these essays is to encourage people to come to know God personally and to have an ever closer walk with Him. I have no desire to persuade people to join or to leave any existing religious groups as I desire to be totally nonsectarian. I've found that the pursuit of the Kingdom of God as the first priority in life brings an adequate supply of all other needed things on the temporal plane of life (see Matthew 6:24-34). My prayer is that every reader of these articles will find the JOY of knowing God and share this with others (see John 17:3). I especially would like to hear from those who read.
