Video talking about who The Whosoevers are and peoples testimony in the video. The Whosoevers was started by Ryan Ries and Sunny Sandoval. Thewhosoevers.com
Ryan Ries came out and is talking. He is talking about how Jesus responded to the people would try to make money off of religion. He says Jesus hated religious people, he is calling the Pharisees and Sadducees the religious people. He said Jesus is the first real punk rocker.
Ryan says Jesus is one of us, not a religious person. Ryan says Jesus is from Heaven reaching down to us. Ryan says religion is man trying to reach up to Heaven and we will never reach.
2 Chronicles 16:9 (NKJV) For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. In this you have done foolishly; therefore from now on you shall have wars.”
Jesus is there to pick you up when you do the same stupid thing over and over again.
Fieldy from Korn is now being interviewed.
Ryan asked Fieldy what led him to Jesus? Fieldy says it was a little taste of God that got him seeking the Lord.
Fieldy's dad got sick and Fieldy thought he was just rich enough and prideful enough that he could pay to get his dad healed. His dad was flat lining and his stepmom asked him to pray with her.
He accepted Christ at that point. He couldn't believe that God could hit a reset button and forgive him of all those sins. He was amazed, then he started reading the Bible, he felt the Holy Spirit in his life. He just wanted to "taste" more of the goodness of God.
Fieldy says he can't explain the unexplainable feeling that he has now that Jesus is in his life.
He said when it "hits the fan" he knows that God is real. It is a battle with the enemy and he has always found Jesus is the way out of the problems. He now runs to Jesus and doesn't run from others.
1 Peter 5:8 (NKJV) 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
Fieldy says it was a process for him to be saved. He learned that things were changing in his life. He says he tells people you have to "come as you are" and Jesus will change you.
Jesus takes the things out of your life that you don't actually want.
The Bible says sin is fun for a season, and we all know it is fun, but that fun sin always ends in death.
Ryan asked Fieldy about when he back slid and started drinking again. He started drinking again for a couple years. Fieldy says it took away his Gidliness with contentment. He realized that drinking did not work for him.
He says you can't wait to stop to accept Jesus. You have to come as you are.
Fieldy is talking about storms in his life. He says he heard it said that nobody gets a pass on life.
Fieldy's wife, Dina, is on stage talking about a storm in her life.
Dina says as Fieldy was gone on tour, she became a drinker and angry. In 2011 she told Fieldy they were done, she started going out and not coming home. In 2012, she said she had to tell Fieldy something. Dina told him that she had to tell him, the she was pregnant by someone else. She then got up and left. Fieldy in response, told her she needed to have an abortion, which was not what Fieldy as a Christian would actually say.
Dina decided to have the abortion, but couldn't do it. Fieldy actually told her not to have the abortion.
Their baby was born 2 years ago, named Noah.
Fieldy was there when Noah was born and they have a strong relationship.
Dina and Fieldy are still having heir problems, but they are together and working through it.
Fieldy says he read, God has a plan and a purpose before we are born. His kids aren't his, they are God's kids.
We can't take God's kids from him, you are God's kid and you are not allowed to take yourself from Him!
