“What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and yet lose his own soul?” (Mark 8:36)
Hi! My name is Bert Farias. I’m a son of first generation Portuguese immigrants. I was raised as a devout Roman Catholic, very learned in all the Catholic sacraments, traditions, and prayers. I was thoroughly converted at 22 years of age when JESUS became real to me. I left everything to follow Him. I packed 5 suitcases full of my belongings, got on a bus, and moved half way across the country, where I knew not a soul, to study the Bible. Then God baptized me in fire and sent me forth as a missionary and zealous street preacher.
I’ve preached on the streets, in the open air, taught in Bible schools, and preached around the world. I speak in churches and in other nations, with a passion to know JESUS more and to make Him known.
I’m also an author of several books and a blogger with a focus on doing my part to help restore the real spirit of Christianity in the Church today.
I try to live soberly knowing that all of humanity lives one heartbeat away from eternity. The guilty sinners who’ve not yet come into a saving knowledge and obedience to Jesus Christ live in a state of constant danger. It is painful to watch the multitudes give themselves over to sin, humanistic philosophies, empty and dead religions, and demonic agendas. Knowing that I was headed in the same aimless direction, I offer people truth and mercy.
The purpose of this blog is to inspire passion and devotion to Jesus Christ, and to encourage you to set your affections on things above.
