It's the greatest story never told: that of a boy who met Jesus and dared to ask Him all the questions that have consumed mankind since the dawn of time. His name was Segatashya. He was a shepherd born into a penniless and illiterate pagan family in the most remote region of Rwanda. He never attended school, never saw a bible, and never set foot in a church. Then one summer day in 1982 while the 15-year-old was resting beneath a shade tree, Jesus Christ paid him a visit. Jesus asked the startled young man if he'd be willing to go on a mission to remind mankind how to live a life that leads to heaven. Segatashya accepted the assignment on one condition: that Jesus answer all his questions-and all the questions of those he met on his travels-about faith, religion, the purpose of life, and the nature of heaven and hell. Jesus agreed to the boy's terms, and Segatashya set off on what would become one of the most miraculous journeys in modern history. Although he was often accused of being a charlatan and beaten as a result, Segatashya's innocent heart and powerful spiritual wisdom quickly won over even the most cynical of critics. Soon, this teenage boy who had never learned to read or write was discussing theology with leading biblical scholars and advising pastors and priests of all denominations. He became so famous in Rwanda that the Catholic Church investigated his story. The doctors and psychiatrists who examined Segatashya all agreed that they were witnessing a miracle. His words and simple truths converted thousands of hearts and souls wherever he went. Before his death during the 1994 Rwandan genocide, Segatashya continued his travels and conversations with Jesus for eight years, asking Him what we all want to know: Why were we created? Why must we suffer? Why do bad things happen to good people? When will the world end?Is there life after death? How do we get to Heaven? The answers to these and many other momentous, life-changing questions are revealed in this riveting book, which is the first full account of Segatashya's remarkable life story. Written with grace, passion, and loving humor by Immaculée Ilibagiza, Segatashya's close friend and a survivor of the Rwandan holocaust herself, this truly inspirational work is certain to move you in profound ways. No matter what your faith or religious beliefs, Segatashya's words will bring you comfort and joy, and prepare your heart for this life . . . and for life everlasting.
Presents the story of an illiterate Rwandan boy who in 1982 claimed he was visited by Jesus and received answers to eternal questions about life that caused him to be both persecuted and revered before his death in the 1994 Rwandan genocide.
"The Boy Who Met Jesus and a Message for Humanity" is a companion book to Immaculee Ilibagiza's book, "The Boy Who Met Jesus." This companion book contains conversations between young, Rwandan visionary, Segatashya, and Jesus. Many readers will remember Segatashya from "The Boy Who Met Jesus". This book of messages focuses on Jesus' 2nd coming and the End Times.
The Boy Who Saw True is based on the diary entries of a young Victorian boy whose extraordinary supernatural talent reveals itself within these pages. By turns naïve, insightful, funny and moving, it is an extremely convincing account of a precocious paranormal talent, and all the more persuasive because the young diarist never sets out to win over his readers. Born with incredible clairvoyant powers, the anonymous author could see auras and spirits, yet failed to realise that other people were not similarly gifted. This remarkable book has become a paranormal classic.
These Stations of the Cross were revised by Immaculee Ilibagiza and include fourteen great lessons Jesus teaches us through His cross on how to face our own struggles. While praying through these Stations, you will discover that there is no better way to love Christ than by taking the time to appreciate the suffering Jesus went through during His Life, especially during His Sorrowful Passion. By praying with Him through His passion, you console Him in the suffering He and His mother endured for us.
New Testament Stories of Lives Transformed by the Savior
Author: Dorothy Valcárcel
Just like us, the women of New Testament times were ambitious, worried, broken, lonely, insecure, and unfulfilled. Discover the powerful stories of their encounters with the perfect, unconditional love of the Savior. Rather than trivializing their problems or ignoring women, Jesus responded to their deepest needs with compassion, reminding them of their value and transforming their past, present, and future. Let this engaging book introduce you to the man who loves women like no other.
ABOUT THIS BOOK This book is about an experience I had when I was a young girl. It came about after much meditation and prayer. God answered all my questions like, Is He real? Can He hear me? Can He answer my questions? Why did He send little children to live in homes where they are mistreated, abused, and even killed? Does He still love little children? Why do people treat each other in such mean ways? How can a parent kill their own child? Why doesnt God stop them? My faith was wavering. I was finding doubts taking over all hope for a better life. I wanted to die, or be adopted by some family who would love me because I was a young child. I wanted to know what kind of work God had for me to do as I matured. I wanted Jesus to bless me like He blessed the little children who gathered around Him in Jerusalem when He was on the earth. God heard my prayer. He called me by my own name. He explained what is, righteous judgment. He took me by the hand, and we flew from the redwood forest in Northern California across all the states to a large city in the east (which I later found out was Detroit, Michigan), dropping in on families who needed His love along the way. I saw their needs, wanted to tell them about God, and how He could help them. But Jesus explained that I was in spirit form, that they could not see me, though I could see them. I could not help them at that time, but the time would come when I could do so if I remained faithful to Him. I learned that we will be judged at the end of our earthly life by the way we treat all those around us, both in thoughts and in deeds.
This is the second is a series of stories about the people Jesus ministered to based on the Gospel of Matthew. Each story looks into the life of the characters in Matthew's account of Jesus' life. Each story looks deep into the life of each person Jesus met, considering the trials and events that led them to Jesus. The stories look past the symbols used in the parable to the events that led up to each, exploring not only the lesson, but the emotion Jesus tried to convey while leading all His followers to a closer relationship with God. Why did His disciples have trouble understanding some of these parables? Why didn't they ask more questions? What did His disciples learn from each of these experiences?
