From a Street Gangster to a Preacher.
As a child, Victor went from troubled, to bad, to worse. By the time he was 17, he had dropped out of school to become a gangster. He was addicted to alcohol, smoking, vulgarities and pornography while pursuing a life of crime. One day Victor met a girl who invited him to church. There he met Jesus Christ and surrendered his life. Victor has never been the same again, as his life continues to undergo an amazing transformation.
Victor King’s Life Transformation
Victor King was a born in Singapore in 1980 and grew up in a Christian family. Despite hating to go to church, he was forced to attend by his parents. They sent him to a Christian school but that didn’t help. When he reached high school, that’s when he was influenced by his friends and got involved in a gang, smoking and skipping school. Things were turning from bad to worse as this became a lifestyle of bondage for him.
Victor started stealing, vandalizing, drinking and getting into fights. His folks found out about it and tried to talk him out of it, but it didn’t work. He was very rude, hot-tempered and vulgar. His teachers, the school staff, relatives, good friends and even counselors tried talking to Victor, but none of them could get through.
The Street Life . . .
Victor was expelled from school because of his bad attitude and poor attendance. He became a dropout at age 17. It didn’t really matter to him that he was a dropout. Rather, it gave him more reasons to become a full-time gangster.
Victor frequented pubs with his gang members daily. He became a very heavy smoker and he got hooked on alcohol. He was full of obscenities and got addicted to pornography. He started womanizing and stayed away from home most of the time. There were times he got involved in armed robberies. Most of his friends were drug addicts and ex-convicts. This troubled life took control over him. Victor was so lost in his sin, he became the worst guy in his family. No one could change him, not even the army.
After he was drafted into the Singapore Armed Forces, many people thought Victor would change for the better, but unfortunately, he did not. He got himself into the army prison (detention barracks) for going A.W.O.L (unauthorized absence) and for his bad attitude. Victor was also brought back to the police station a couple of times. His lifestyle kept pointing him to the prison, but he would always escape without getting caught.
Preserved By God for a Purpose . . .
Victor’s slavery to the devil came to an end just a few years ago. He had had quite a number of girlfriends in the past, and most of them were unbelievers. Five years ago, he got to know a girl who was a Christian. She brought him to her church. The Lord Jesus touched him and he started to break down. Victor suddenly felt so in love and loved, but he didn’t know how or by whom. All he knew was that this love was something beyond human experience. That day he received Jesus as his Lord and Savior.
Life Transformation . . .
Victor’s life was not the same after that day. As time went on, Jesus delivered him from so many things. Nine years of heavy smoking ended, six years of alcohol addiction was gone, and as time went by, God supernaturally took him out of the gang, delivered him from vulgarities, anger, womanizing, pornography, filthy lust and many more bad habits. The Lord made Victor see women in a different way.
He became a new creation. And Victor was also healed of a 10-year urinary bladder problem. Amazing grace! What man could not do, Jesus did. The people who knew Victor were shocked at the changes in him. The Bible says, with man it may seem impossible, but with God, all things are possible. It also says that sin shall have no dominion over us for we are not under law but under God’s grace.
The Lord is still working in Victor King’s life. He has felt the power and the manifest glory of Jesus in his transformed life.
There is hope in Jesus Christ.
