I am victim of identity theft! Wait a minute do it mean someone robbed my name? It is not “someone” it is “something” that truly robbed my name! Who is “something?” The answer is booze! Booze creeps into my life as it slowly began to alter my identity into different man it is where it brought the born of “Mr. Mike.”
Booze: I promise you that I am your true painkiller medication so drink me and your problem will go away
Michael: I don’t need to drink you because you are too strong
Booze: C’mon! Once you get used to my taste and it will kill your taste bud and you will fell in love with me, try me! I promise you better life as your problems will go away!
Michael: (crying) Just one shot!
Booze: Sure, once one shot is being drank, and you will ask more from me, I am your life and you will swim in me and I will breath new life in you, trust me!
Michael stared at dark yellow liquid inside the bottle, and opened the bottle and pour into shot glass then drank furiously!
Booze gave the silence last laugh at Michael
Booze: I owned you and I am giving you new name you will be called Mr. Mike and Mr. Michael is useless identity so let Mr. Mike be your new identity
Mike tempted for more from booze and he was unable to resist booze as he began to see something actually was not there.
Booze: I gave you new vision and you can do something beyond what Mr. Michael cannot do! Have a true joy ride of your life, drink me more!
Mr. Mike was doing something he thought would bring the new life in himself but in reality it is doing more damage toward his loved ones, career job and fruitful ministry!
No wonder, Satan used same old method since the beginning where he fooled Eve!
The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?” “Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.'” “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.” The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it too. At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves. ~ Genesis 3:1-7 (New Living Translation)
I was turned into Mr. Mike which created the ugliness inside my soul where it became withered and I brought bad aroma toward beloved people whom has been dear to me. I was blinded to false promise of booze where I thought the booze would take away my pain for good but once the effective of booze faded away and I saw the pain has returned to my soul, it is where booze kept called me and remind me of my identity as being Mr. Mike and continue to abandon my true identity as Mr. Michael.
The truth shattered upon me on 11/29/12 where I was stripped of everything and continued to shut my eyes away from facing the reality, meanwhile I discovered the true deception where I was being fooled by the promise of booze brought me to confession on 12/3/12 of being victim of identity theft.
Mr. Mike: You destroyed my life and I thought you promised me with new identity where it will take away my pain!
Booze: You are being deceived and I owned you. I gave my last laugh at you and I wanted to see you die!
Mr. Mike: You don’t own me anymore, I gave my life to Christ and I will no longer be controlled by you!
Booze (screamed) (the imaginative of booze faded away)
Being Mr. Mike, I had to dig out the deep hole in my soul and saw how much ugly I am and how much I hurt my love of my life, my cherished families & close friends. I had to pull out the skeleton in the closet to begin the true inner healing where I had to abandon the identity of being Mr. Mike and restored myself to my true legal name as Michael Gonzalez and my true name is Mr. Michael.
Michael’s Dad: I wanted to name him, Michael after my best friend’s name!
Michael’s Mom: YES!
God’s grace has been on me since I was born!
Being Mr. Michael gave me new life in Christ where it help me dealt with true pain and learn to understand the true progress of inner healing than to find alter way to ease off pain.
This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!~2 Corinthians 5:17 (New Living Translation)
Confessed of being victim of identity theft on 12/3/12
Mr. Mike is no more, it is long gone and dead
Mr. Michael is a new life in Christ!
