I received this text just yesterday from an individual God had me minister to when he was in the Sacramento County Jail. He had read my book Demon Mentality Exposed, wherein a chapter I talk about God’s angelic protection He provides for us.
“My name is Vincent I was sentenced to 32 months in prison during my stay in the county jail I was introduced to Rayford he did the Deliverance Prayer over me would change my life forever I’m a reformed gang member and while I was in a gang I made a lot of enemies and going to prison what’s the scary nightmare for me not knowing what was going to happen when I got there who was there but the night before I left to go to prison Rayford came to see me and prayed over me again asking Four Angels of the Lord to protect me and that no weapon formed against me shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17) and believe it or not the next day on that bus to prison I wasn’t scared I didn’t have no fear I was ready to do the time I was given while I was in prison I got in a fight with this guy because someone else told him something that wasn’t true and he wanted to show that he wasn’t no punk just to impress who is that was his friends well he approached me saying that I disrespected him and we have to fight.
So I take a step back try to talk him out of it he swung on me we both started fighting as we are fighting I said angels of the Lord restrain this man because I was tired of fighting I didn’t want to get caught didn’t want to get in trouble didn’t want to hurt nobody when I said angels of the Lord restrain this man he was throwing a punch and his body locked up and his mind changed instantly and he came to realization why are we even fighting for anyways and I told him because you let other people missguided your directions we hug each other said a prayer and I brought him the Bible studies every week and we became close friends after that but ever since I met Ray my life’s been a blessing I got out of prison got a job bought a house and I’m just taking care of my family all through the grace of God just have faith and don’t give up cuz he won’t give up on you.”

Special Report: Mike Ramey-ThugExposed.Org Correspondent
Welcome to America’s NEW monthly favorite column for Men: THE MANHOOD LINE: LIVE! It’s predecessor, THE MANHOOD LINE was God-breathed, American made and world traveled. We’re gonna stretch the hits even further, as we round the bases. The former column has gone from Rome, Italy to Tokyo, Japan–and points in between. Past editions of this column have been used in classrooms, churches, and kitchen tables…with men having a great time celebrating its fare. It’s time to move up and on to the ‘next phase’, baby! There are men in need of this new column…including some who have never seen the original one.
I write from a biblical, business, common sense–and now historical–perspective. My column is written FOR men. The ground rules are simple. If women ‘get it’ then, that’s fine. If they don’t…well, I’ll give my critics all the attention that they deserve. I’m a ranger of the P-School. P-School is older than Old school. The gray in my temples is well earned. Of course, since I am a Christian and African-American, those perspectives will also figure in the mix.
The first efforts of the old column began humbly in 1996, and wrapped up in 2006. For those who feel the need to get out the calculator, I’ll sum it up for you–10 years. I moved on to other writing efforts, having a great time with them. It was time to let this column lie fallow for a season, mainly to keep an eye on the horizon. Soon, a new tour of duty was ordered–thanks mainly to Jesus Christ–several good friends and several years of studying the mainstream press, and social media…and finding little to ‘lift up’ the young men of the next generation. The timing was right to pick up where the original column left off: providing the Men of our day (yes, including the under-30 crowd) with spiritual truth and guidance that they aren’t getting from their parents, homes, schools, mainstream press or even some–dare I say it–churches.
BALL OF CONFUSION: Dark clouds have appeared upon the horizon, once again, concerning men and boys. In the words of one of my Allies–Henri–from the west coast: “It’s time for the brothers to knuckle up and buckle up!” T. D. Jakes also noted back in the day: “A nation of women, can NOT raise up a nation of men.” I have taken this saying even further ahead: “As goes a nation’s men, so goes the nation.”
Baby, look how far the bottom has dropped out of the shopping bag.
America continues its feminized slide, as the Bible has predicted. Feminism has grown and mutated again, now approaching its fifth wave. The feminist of today can binge drink without repercussions; punch men without regret, dress like a whore and maintain that she is a victim; enter areas which have CLEARLY been marked off limits by God, and she eagerly engages in the practices of racism, homosexuality and anti-Semitism better than Hitler and the Third Reich. Like the Temptations said in their music years ago…with a little twist: feminists are contributing to a ‘Ball of Confusion’.
Dark times, indeed? Balderdash! Time for REAL men to answer the call!
TIME TO RE-TAKE SOME REAL ESTATE: This is the BEST time to make our advances as men, and re-take some real estate, with the determination of the faith engrained in us.
My advice to the men of today is simple: FEAR NOT! We don’t have to get ‘knee shakes’ every time the MSM comes out with their ‘studies’, or a feminist rant, or some wacko from Hollywood who decides that this is a good day to trot their sons out in high-heels and makeup. Those who throw the bricks and the bombs against us are merely ‘shadow puppets’. They don’t have any say about true, biblical, traditional manhood. Why listen to a lie, when we KNOW the truth!
Wage Economic War, for starters: Don’t give your money to the weak, spineless, social engineers–and their cronies and allies! Cut off the TV set of professional sports teams who don’t back our flag! The NFL is rapidly getting the message, as they continue to lose viewers and ticket sales. With as many African Americans as there are in uniform, and HAVE been in uniform, supporting Black athletes who are anti-military and anti-American just does NOT make any sense. To add more insult to injury, many of the athletes who ‘take a knee’ are NOT registered to vote–thus they are not stakeholders in the protests that they are leading.
Monitor Your Own Character. This should be stressed in the home. However, let’s pick this up from the street level. The Police do NOT drive down the street in a paddy wagon, sirens and bullhorns blaring, asking if young men want to get in and go to prison. Shady people are often lawbreakers. It’s very simple–young men, stay away from shady people. It’s too late to apologize once the handcuffs have gone on!
RAMEY’S MONTHLY WISDOM FILE: Great book that I’m re-reading: “Courage” by Edwin Lewis Cole. This is a product of the 80s, and is worth having a few extra copies on the shelf. The late Dr. Cole has been credited with ‘kick starting’ the Christian Men’s movement which eventually led to the Promise Keepers rallies around the country. “Courage” is still around at your favorite electronic bookseller. Many copies have the camouflage cover, just to remind us that there is still a war going on in society against upright men.
THE ‘STILL THROWING STRIKES’ DEPARTMENT: *Nowhere in the Bible does a woman ask a man to marry her. God made a man’s shoulder’s broad, and his voice deep for a reason!
*Quote from famed journalist, columnist and author Tony Brown: “Don’t ask me what your chances for success are; TELL me what they are…for you DO NOT need my permission to be successful!” See you on the battlefield next month, brothers!
CERN is the modern day Tower of Babel project. The goal of the tower of Babel in Babylon was to open up new dimensions or portals to allow fallen angels to come through, to give them forbidden knowledge and the secrets to become a god or goddess. The CERN project is the largest, most epic project since the attempt to build the ancient Tower of Babel. There are over 10,000 engineers and physicists, from 85 countries, who have come to together and built a 17-mile long machine, called the Hadron Super Collider. What I find interesting is that Cernunnos was the horned god of the underworld. Do you believe it’s just a coincidence that CERN is short for this pagan underworld god Cernunnos?
Basically, the goal of CERN is to recreate the “Big Bang.” They want to understand the particles that make up matter. One scientist explained it like this… If you studied a complex object, and you discovered that what was holding the object together was glue and you wanted to replicate the object, however, there was no glue like it left in the world, and the ingredients for the glue was lost, you would have to find out what the glue was made of so you could recreate it.
However, you would not be able to really study the glue in its solid form. You would have to break it apart into separate particles to the ground foundation to see what it was made of in its liquid form, then make your own glue, so you could recreate the complex object.
This is what CERN is doing, they have built the Hadron Super
Collider machine, to smash particles, into smaller particles, because they want to understand how to build their own creations at will. First, you must understand that this project is sponsored by New World-Old globalists, who are Luciferians. They want to be like God. They also believe that smashing these particles at the speed of light opens up black holes or wormholes to other dimensions. The goal is to connect with our dimensions, which we know as the spirit realm.
Connecting to the spirit realm outside of connecting to God, however, is called sorcery. This is high-level witchcraft, this is exactly what the goal was with the Tower of Babel in Babylon (Babylon means “gate of the gods”). The Tower of Babel was constructed for the purpose for the people to worship lucifer/satan and his fallen angels, it was going to be utilized as a device to open a wide portal to the spirit world, CERN’s Hadron Super Collider is satan’s second attempt at
this. It was to connect with other dimensions, also known as creating a stargate. This is an excerpt from an article out of The Register which validates that they are planning to connect to other dimensions:
“A top boffin at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) says that the titanic machine may possibly create or discover previously unimagined scientific phenomena, or “unknown unknowns” for instance, “an extra dimension.”
“Out of this door might come something, or we might send something through it,” said Sergio Bertolucci, who is Director for
Research and Scientific Computing at CERN, briefing reporters
The theory is, if they can collide particles, they can open up black holes within the universe, in order to communicate with other dimensions through the black holes. This, in essence, is the spirit realm, the black hole is the Stargate, or door, to the spirit realm. When these black holes are open during the collisions, black matter and energy are released out of the portals, along with evil spirits. Witches, sorcerers, and magicians utilize the dark matter, which is spiritual material, to create replicas of earthly creations, basically a counterfeit of God’s creation, because their doctrine is for themselves to become a god.
Again this entire project at CERN was constructed on cult doctrine. In front of CERN stands a huge statue of Shiva (Hindu god), known as the “Destroyer.” In the mystery religions of the secret societies, it is taught “order out of chaos,” symbolic of the Phoenix (A bird of Greek mythology, which after a long life, dies in a fire of its own making, only to rise again from the ashes. From religious and naturalistic symbolism in ancient Egypt, to a secular symbol for armies, communities, and even societies.
Source:http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Phoenix_(mythology), which is a prominent symbol in many secret societies. It is the cult’s belief, that Shiva destroys, in order to rebuild.We see a consistent theme with “order out of chaos.” Remember, satan wants everything under his order when he brings the antichrist on the scene to rule the New World Order. CERN built the Hadron Super Collider machine on the LHC complex, which is situated at Saint Genis Pouilly. In Roman times it was called Apolliacum, a town dedicated to Apollyon, where a temple was built to worship the demonic deity.
Apollyon, the Greek name, like Shiva, also means “Destroyer,” given in Revelation 9:11 for “the angel of the bottomless pit” (in Hebrew called Abaddon), also identified as the king of the demonic “locusts” described in Revelation 9:3-10. In one manuscript, instead of Apollyon, the text reads “Apollo,” the Greek god of death and pestilence as well as of the sun, music, poetry, crops and herds, and medicine.
The name “Apollo” was often linked in ancient Greek writings with the verb apollymi or apollyo, “destroy.” In a nutshell, satan is utilizing CERN as a mechanism to release his fallen angels from the bottomless pit onto earth, so they can eventually destroy mankind. They are releasing a frequency of 4,096 hz according to scientific researcher
Anthony Patch. Patch states:
“The ‘key to the bottomless pit’ is the breaking of an ENCRYPTED DIMENSIONAL CODE. One specific to Saturn’s cube, requiring 4,096 qubits.”
9 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.
4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those
men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.
10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.
We are literally living in the prophetic Book of Revelation. This is
clearly the fingerprint of satan: “Satan comes to kill, steal and to
Destroy.” John 10:10

Jail Deliverance Testimony- Stephanie: Delivered from Tattoo Curse, Mental Torment & Nose Healed-from Cocaine Damage.
Sacramento County Jail 3/15/17
“Deliverance from Tattoos, Night Terrors and Nose Healed from Damage from Cocaine Addiction”
My name is Stephanie and Reverend Rayford Johnson came to Sacramento County Jail and as we talked I told him the areas where I needed deliverance and help to overcome.
Being afraid not being able to go to sleep:Fighting my sleep and my tattoos, I have two lustful naked/half naked women and one a human form gargoyle: ones on my side, the other on my forearm.My other tattoos some are of astrology some on my hand and on my neck along with a name of my ex who has done some pretty terrible things to me even cheating and what not…
I always hate how people comment on them and it puts a bad image on me, like they don’t see me just my tattoos.
Now we begin to pray and rebuke and calling out the names and naming my problem spirits and I felt an urge to kinda like brush my arm with the tattoos on it with my other arm and when I went to do that I looked and my arm where the gargoyle is from her down to my hand was hot glowing red; like a metal when someone welds after they pull that pieceof metal out of the furnace, how it glows a red hot glow burning, thats what my arm looked like and like I stated before I swept or brushed it away with my other hand.
Immediately after that I felt afraid, an eerie spirit was bothering me causing movement in my hair and around my neck area that I touched and grabbed in a throw it like motion.
He asked me if I was feeling anything else, mind you the whole time he his praying and another gal is praying with us in a rebuking manner and I said ‘yes, my nose, something is bothering me there, I used cocaine a lot in the past’:After he prayed over that area as well, I felt I could breathe fresh air from my nose that I haven’t felt that way in a long time.
My arm wasn’t red anymore and my hair and neck area was laying down straight, I felt relieved of any blockage holding my neck, I was beginning to feel my shakiness subside and a big weight came off my heart/chest area.
After I felt better, during the whole time he is still praying, and then be begins praying that I be filled with the Lord, God’s light in Jesus name in Hebrew (Yeshua Hamachia) I believe, and I kept feeling being filled with good positive fruits of the Holy Spirit,it was an amazing feeling.
This took place Monday March 13th, It’s now Wednesday the 15th, it’s been a day and a half and this morning and last night I slept so good, and had the most amazing dream(s) ever where I’m flying andsee my housein the air, lots of brightness, some water when I looked down and I’m just flying up and over beautiful scenery, white clouds, light all around and moving fast.
Also I’ve noticed no one is noticing my tattoos, hahahha!, it’s crazy if I think I see their eyes’ glance at them, that would be it, a glance and nothing else no more, glances, and makes me think the didn’t even notice in the first place.
Spiritual realms here working for real and God is all so Powerful.I Praise God and Thank Him and for working and speaking through Reverend Rayford Johnson, may God continue to bless him abundantly in the name of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit forever and ever, Amen!

“My Sincere appreciation conveyed to Brother Ray and your ministry.May God Bless abundantly.
Okay so this letter is in regards to the testimony you asked for after helping release the demonic beings who had dominion over me as well as destroy the tools used to keep me in bondage.Words cannot explain the amount of gratitude I have for your time and prayer.Allow us to give all Honor, Glory, and Praise to our Heavenly Father and his beloved Son Jesus Christ.
November 1st, 2017, I Anthony C. received a visit from Mr. Rayford after formally meeting each other we began discovering why I wanted him to pray for and over me and what kind of things were going on in my life.
I began telling Brother Rayford about seeing people around me transform from one person to another before my very eyes.Now when I get upset and angry, I feel as if something else takes over my body and I became a passenger inside my own body.When this happens I feel the power and strength this other being releases and the more I hit someone or feed that anger the stronger it’s power becomes.At times I would give into my anger to the point that this being would actually take over and I would black out.
Mr. Rayford began telling me that all these things are in fact demonic forces interacting with me.He then began breaking down the ways these beings get inside you as well as how they obtain the authority to be there and dominate you by the behaviors and practices of our day to day life.These practices and behaviors vary from lustful thoughts, adultery, drug abuse, tattoos and actively participating in gangs.As I am being informed of these things my eyesight begins to darken and something inside of me kept trying to get me to leave, but I deeply desired to see this through.
At that time Brother Rayford started praying for legions, many legions of angels to enter the room so that they may bind the demons and cast them back into hell.I then felt a light presence around me and another heavy and hollow presence within my body.While Mr. Rayford prayed for specific things like lust, abandonment, guilt, anger, depression, mental illness, ADHD, schizophrenia, bipolar, drug abuse, adultery…..etc…
I could see inside my mind< for I had my eyes closed, head bowed> these demons and demonic beings opened their eyes and looked in the direction Mr. Rayford was praying from.Some of those beings were released instantly, others held on long but I noticed that as they were being released either by disappearing, being dragged away or thrown into the fire,I kept feeling pressure being released from my body.
Some of these demonic beings were released through my sweat from within my armpits but it was not the feeling of normal sweat but felt as if it were a serpent.
Numerous times Brother Rayford asked me how I was feeling and my response was “lighter” and I was able to direct him where in my body these beings had tried to gather and manifest.Brother Rayford then prayed over those areas and I continuously felt lighter and more release from these tormentors.This cycle continued a few times until I felt a complete whole body lightness.Mr. Rayford then asked me how I felt and all I could say was:“I feel like I am floating in the air.”Brother Rayford began laughing joyfully and I joined in and he prayed that God keeps me in his good graces and anoint me with His Holy Spirit and allow me to feel His love, His joy, His forgiveness, and asked for more love, more joy, more love, more joy.I couldn’t stop myself from laughing and smiling for I kept feeling a flood of these emotions running through me.
Mr. Rayford then asked that God equipped me with his armor and Mr. Rayford began reciting each piece of the Armor of God the Belt of Truth, Breastplate of Righteousness, Sandals of Peace, Shield of Faith, Helmet of Salvation and the Sword of the Holy Spirit.And as Brother Rayford prayed that God equipped me with these things, I felt a belt wrap around my waist, a breastplate or vest cover my chest and upper body including my back, shoes or sandals being slid on to my feet, a shield on my left arm with a heavyweight.I felt a sword appear into my hand < right hand >then disappear and reappear onto my hip as if it were holstered and I also felt a helmet placed upon my head, then be lifted off and turned into a halo that floated above my head.
Mr. Rayford then asked how I felt again and I told him exactly how all the Armor felt around me.He then said glory be to God and asked me to praise God which we both began doing together.
After one last prayer of strength as well as protection, Brother Rayford and I said our goodbyes and I returned to my pod.As I returned to my pod I still felt the weight and the presence of the Armor of God and also felt lighter and inside felt whole and clean.That night I slept beautifully.
Hey, Brother Ray hope this letter serves its purpose in giving glory to God and the work of his people.Hopefully, this helps touch many lives God Bless you.Also if you got time please send the two books that you had mentioned thank you.Please keep me in your Churches prayers.”
Posted inThugExposed.Org Updates|Comments Off on Inmate literally feels “Armor of God” come on him after (( Demon Deliverance Prayer ))
Hello, my Brother, this is your good friend T—- writing you.I had such a blessing visit from you today my spirit is overfilled with peace and love.
You see growing up I been abused physically, sexually and mentally.So I grew up with a lot of fear in my life.And the meth I was using was making me more afraid, but that’s not all.If I was to make a list, it would go on and on.the devil had his chains wrapped around me.
Then I met you brother, you broke the chains through prayer and deliverance with the power of the Holy Ghost.When I bowed my head and you were praying for me I felt the devil inside of me moving around throughout my whole body.
I started shaking just like when I feel fear or afraidI prayed for the devil along with the power of the demons to leave my soul.Then finally I felt the demons come out and the Holy Spirit was able to fully enter my mind and body.That’s when the tears of hurt and pain and fear came pouring out.
Then at last with the Holy Spirit entering completely within me, those tears of hurt, pain, guilt, and fear turned into tears of joy, love, peace, and forgiveness.
Rayford, I just want to say thank you for your visit.You have truly blessed me with the power of the Holy Spirit.God is real and Satan is real.And this life is a constant battle between God and Satan.But today I surrender my self completely to God.Now since I know how to use my sword of the spirit, I can conquer and overcome Satan and his demons.
I know my journey with God has just begun.But I’m not going to give up on god.God loves me and He wants me to be in Heaven with Him one day.This life is only temporary.
The devil will try his hardest to steal my soul and pull me into his lust but in Jesus Name I resist! Be gone!I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Rayford if you have time, please come visit me again and pray for me some more.Thank you, my Brother, and thank you, Jesus.

Ever wondered why secret societies are secret? Why is it that an overwhelming majority of elite leaders in America, including those who’ve occupied the highest office, have belonged to an organization in the vast network of secret societies, whose rituals and teachings derived from the ancient mystery schools of Egypt and Babylon?
Why is death the penalty for breaking a secret society oath? Why do they pay homage to pagan gods and goddesses?
Why do many self-proclaimed Christians belong to these secret societies, when their practices blatantly violate God’s Commandments, such as Exodus 20:3, which states, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me?” And why don’t their pastors say anything about it?
Is there a secret motive behind the positive PR that many of these secret organizations receive for their good deeds such as feeding programs, scholarships, volunteering, youth mentoring, etc. that even the lower ranking members of these societies don’t know about?
Could today’s network of these secret societies be the architects and workers of the antichrist’ New World Order aka “Illuminati,” as prophesied in the Holy Bible?
These questions and more will be answered by author and Evangelist Rayford L. Johnson, who has spent more than 20 years researching, writing and teaching on the occult.
Johnson has counseled and ministered demon deliverance prayers on many former members of the occult. Many of them have testified that they have been set free by the power of Jesus Christ from the spiritual torment and generational curses that the pagan rituals and oaths have unknowingly brought upon them and even their family through the “spiritual legalities” of breaking God’s commandments.
“It was Familia first, before everything, even before my own mother, before my own family, I put them first. I’ve been locked up all my life, since 10 years old,” Sammy Dominguez, a former “shot caller” for the Nuestra Familia reflects back in an interview for ThugExposed.Org.
Sammy explains his long and violent journey through the juvenile hall system, youth detention camps, Youth Authority and then graduating into the California Department of Corrections, where he spent over 26 years of a life sentence for a gang-related murder in Soledad State Prison.
Sammy grew up in the “hood” in Bakersfield, California.
“My stepfather was a drug addict,he was one of the main dealers there in Bakersfield. One thing he always schooled me on was ‘Do what I say, not as I do.’ He schooled me about drugs. What I saw in him, what I saw in my uncles and friends and homies, I didn’t use drugs, that’s what made me a good soldier out there dedicated to what I was into.I didn’t start using drugs until I was in the pen and that was about seven years after I’d already been in the pen, at a point when I was bitter, full of hatred and didn’t have no kind of peace, so I start fixing, just to feel some kind of peace.”
As a youth, Sammy became a hardened Norteno gang member through years of gang banging and even suffering an almost fatal gunshot to the head. He moved up the ranks quickly to become a member in the Nuestra Familia.He was recruited in the County Jail while awaiting charges on some gang-related shootings.
“They liked the way I carried myself,” Sammy recalls.
He said that the Nuestra Familia intervened in getting the charges dropped at the time, by talking to those who were going to testify against him. He would later be brought up on those charges again, and convicted, because one of his crime partners turned state’s witness.
“When you take somebody’s life, there (are) consequences behind that. It’s not just killing somebody and walking away. Something happens to you. You’re not the sameas you were, once before.I didn’t know this until way down the line, when I received Christ as my Lord and Savior.When we take the position of taking one’s life, we are taking His (God) position, because He’s the only one who has the right to give life and take life. I use to walk like everything revolved around me; me, myself and I.As far as God was concerned, no, I felt as if I was God.And by taking someone’s life, the peace that I thought I had at one time, was completely gone, because I was just bitter, full of hatred. That’s why I turned to drugs. And doing life, I didn’t care about nothing, or nobody.
“Because of the hardness of my heart, God allowed some things to happen to open my eyes, He was getting my attention.”It started with a bloody riot Samy was involved in, in 1985 in Soledad State Prison.
“What started off to be between the NF (Nuestra Familia/Nortenos) and EME (Mexican Mafia/Surenos) turned out to be just a big free-for-all, because everyone was getting off, literally all hell breaks loose.”
“After they take all my people out, I’m left by myself. During this time I get rid of the piece that I was working on for the big search and during this lock down, word gets to me that says, as soon as we get off, you’re dead.”
“My mind is set already, I got nothing to lose, I’m doing life.My mindset is, I’m taking one of them with me, it doesn’t matter which one.”
During this lockdown, after they do their search, I bust down another piece, so I’m ready. But then I get this letter. I have no celly or nothing and I get this letter from my ex-wife. We’ve been divorced for a few years, no contact whatsoever.Out of the clear, I get this letter from her.In this letter she’s sharing the gospel with me.Three verses she quotes:
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
“Fear not, for I am with you;Be not dismayed, for I am your God.I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteousness right hand.”
“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things,which you do not know.”
After Sammy read those verses, he searches for a Bible that was given to him by an unlikely source.
“I had this Bible there that was given to me from my enemy,the guy I killed, his brother.He sent some Christian people to visit me.I’m thinking it’s just another set-up.And I go down and there’s a man and a woman, behind the booth, it was behind the glass.They have a guitar and they introduce themselves, and they say, ‘you’re Sammy Dominguez.’I say, ‘yeah…’; they say, ‘You’re not going to believe this, but Danny sent us to see you.
He says, ‘you’re his worse enemy, you killed his brother.But since he’s been out, he has acknowledged Christ as his Lord and Savior and he would like to see you do the same in due time.’ And from the time I went to the pen, they would visit me once a week, sharing with me. And they gave me this Bible and just before I was getting ready to catch the chain to go to the pen, I try to get rid of it.I see one of my homeboys going home, I say, ‘Hey, do me a favor drop that off by my mom’s, because I don’t want to throw (away) this nice Bible you know.So the cops say, ‘No, you keep your property.’ So the Bible followed me all the way until that night when the Lord was speaking to me.”
“It seemed like all these Christians were being put in my path. Out of respect I always listened, but because of the hardness of my heart, I continued in my ways.”
“When I had opened this Bible up to look up those verses, it just seemed to just speak to me and I received a peace.”
“It was only when I acknowledged His Word that I felt a peace. Peace that I had when I use to fix was nothing compared to this peace.This peace was fulfilling, it wasn’t like the drug I used to fix that was gone, soon as the high was gone, which is only temporary. The peace I received from the Lord was fulfilling, it stood with me.When this was going on, I realized there was a war going on in my cell for my soul and the devil, he had me.I guess I was one of his best soldiers there, and he wasn’t letting go.
“And during this lock-down I’m reading this Bible and I couldn’t get enough of it, but I would have to set it down. I said, ‘nah, I got to face this, I got to deal with this, it’s either kill or be killed.There’s no ifs and ands about it.’”
A few months into the lockup, Sammy has a family visit.
“It was mom and my little brother.Since I was in the pen, they had come to get saved.I go to the visiting trailer and it just seemed like a big load was taken off me, temporarily.There is my family, I’m happy to see them, they’re happy to see me.I would never tell my mom or anyone.
“My little brother, he’s about eight at the time, he says, ‘I just want to tell you, Jesus loves you.’ I’ve always been one to listen out of respect.I said, ‘that’s good mijo, I’m glad to hear that.’ I then said, ‘let me go talk to mom.’ I wanted to make a way just to leave.As I’m talking to my mom, she is preparing food, she starts crying and I said what’s going on and she tells me, ‘I wasn’t going to come,’ and I said, ‘why is that?’ She said, ‘but I felt I had to tell you personally.’ I said, ‘tell me what?’ She says, ‘I went the doctors and they ran tests on me and they found traces of cancer in me.’
“You know when they gave me life, it didn’t really phase me too much, I accepted it, I embraced it, because I knew what I really deserved.Just throughout the years, it just hardened me that much more.My divorce and everything, I just cut everything loose on the streets.See when you’re in the pen doing life, you can’t live in there and the streets at the same time, you’ll lose your mind.So I cut everything loose out there.”
“But moms, she has always been special.And so when she’s telling me this, I sit down, I don’t say nothing, the only thing that’s coming to mind, is that I’m going to lose my mom, I done lost everything else.She then says, ‘It’s OK Mijo, it’s OK, let it out.’You know, in reality, my heart is so hard I can’t even show emotion for my own mom. So I just get up and go to the bathroom, I don’t even turn on the light and I’m standing in the pitch darkness and it’s typical of us to start blaming God. “How can you allow this to happen to her, she’s serving you?”
It seemed like I was standing there for a long time, but so clear, these verses start coming to my mind.“Trust in the Lord with all your heart.”And I respond, ‘I never trusted in nobody and you ask me, want me to trust in you?’ I felt at that moment I was talking to the Lord. I never trusted nobody, but you ask me to trust in you. I say, ‘I can’t deny this peace that I felt.’ I want that, so at that moment, I asked Him to come into my heart. ‘Come into my heart, be my Lord, be my Savior, because I want this peace, I want to keep it.’You know it just seemed like everything was going to be alright.He says, ‘Call on me and I will answer thee and show thee great and mighty things that thou knows not.’
I think then and only then, was I able to show emotion.I went out, and I didn’t even tell my mom what took place.I just went and we had a beautiful visit. Before she leaves, she says, ‘I got another appointment, they’re going to run more tests on me in a couple of weeks.’I said, “OK.’
So I go back behind the wall and the tension was so thick, as soon as I walk in you can cut it with a dull knife. And you can feel that hatred, the ugliness, you know?So
I go back to my cell and I still don’t have a celly.I’m in there; I pull out that Bible and start reading it again and during this time when this is all happening, I’m talking to the Lord, I’m conversing with Him, feeding off His Word. I couldn’t get enough of it.
Soon crisis Intervention starts during the lockdown. They start pulling out communicators from the different gangs. Sammy, being a long term shot caller at Soledad, is appointed as the communicator to represent the Nortenos.
“There was a war still going on in that cell.I tell God, ‘I’m just going to put it in your hands.’I stepped out without my piece (weapon).
Sammy then proceeds to talk to the rival shot callers at their cell door.Sammy conveys that he is amazed by the supernatural favor God provides to bring a peace between the two rival gangs at that time, so they can proceed to reintegrate with each other on the yard.
Sammy explains that after his transformation, that when he would get together in his gang “huntas” or meeting,“I felt like an alien there, like I didn’t belong there.Something was telling me, you have no business here anymore.So I started congregating with some other Christians and found out that’s where I fit in.”
Weeks go by and Sammy receives news from his mother on the phone, that doctors miraculouslycan no longer find any trace of cancer in her. I said ‘Praise God.’ She said, ‘What?’ That was the first time she ever heard me ever say anything like that, I repeated it again, ‘Praise God’”
“She said, ‘you know Mijo, this is something I’ve been praying for all these years. I said, ‘Praise God because it’s all about serving Him now.’”
“So after the conversation I get off the phone and here comes some of my carnales (brothers); we start walking and they say, ‘what’s up, when are you coming back to the family?’ and I just looked at them and I said, ‘I’m still doing life behind you fools,’ and I Iooked at them and said, ‘It’s all about serving God’ and they responded, ‘You know what? We can respect that, but you know what, we’ll be watching.’
One carnale said, ‘It’s just a phase you’re going through, you’ve been down so long.’ I said, ‘If it is, praise God, because it feels good.’
Sammy’s gang wanted him to investigate “Big D”(Donald Garcia), the co-founder of the Mexican Mafia (Eme), the Nuestra Familia’s rival. Word was that he had become a born again Christian, and the Nuestra Familia wanted Sammy to find out if it was authentic, because he had just arrived there at Soledad.
Sammy said his gang told him, “We want to make sure he’s on the up and up. If not, we are going to make a move. We want you to check it out.We know you’re a Christian, doing your Christian thing. Hey, and if he’s a Christian then it’s all good.”
“An opportunity presented itself. I went and introduced myself to this brother, and man, I mean our fellowship was beautiful.Yeah, he was a brother.”
Sammy said that when he and “Big D” would walk the yard together, inmates would do a double take, because the North and South were so heavy then in gang warfare.
Sammy chuckles as he remembers a Correctional Officer once joked, telling both of them while they were walking, “Hey did you hear, there’s a farmer and a fly together, they’re Christians.” Sammy said he and “Big D” would smile and look at each other and say, “Praise God,” and be on their way.
“The Lord was taking me to my enemies.”
Sammy said scripture was being revealed such as Proverbs 16:7. “When a man’s ways please the Lord, even his enemies are at peace with him.I was literally living that, you know.”I would be sharing with my enemies in the shower, they would just be dumbfounded and they would just trip and we would just start talking and they would open up.”
“One brother, he was a Sureno shot caller, one day we are on the yard, waiting to come in on recall.We used to hate each other, I mean we hated each other. One day we are just standing there and I said, ‘How are you doing, Antonio?’ and he looks at me and says, ‘Hey Sam,’ I said, ‘yeah, how are you doing?’ He said, ‘I’m doing alright.’
I said, ‘Don’t trip. I’m serving the Lord.’He says, ‘you know what? I got a sister. She writes to me all the time. She is always sharing with me.’I said, ‘that’s great, you know.’I said, ‘If you’re not doing anything on Wednesday night, I would like to invite you to come down to the church.’He said, ‘OK.’I said “Praise God.” I put myhand out and he accepted it.
So that Wednesday at worship, there he was. He was in the back, but you know what, when it came for an altar call, he was there.He acknowledged Christ as his Lord and Savior.”
As time went on, Sammy stated that he would often point to him and say, “You (know) that brother Sam, he was a shot caller for a long time here, we hated each other, but you know what, the Lord used him to touch me, to reach me, and it’s because of him that I’m saved.”Sammy begins to chuckle and he said he would tell him, “No, it’s because of Jesus you’re saved.”
After serving 26years, Sammy was released from prison, by the Grace of God and is now married with children.He operates a successful welding business and is still going strong preaching the Gospel and setting the captives free in Jesus’ name.
