McKelvy’s story is one of grace, love, and deliverance.
“No matter how far away you think you are from God. There is always a way home.”
Jacob McKelvy, the founder of the Greater Church of Lucifer in Texas, spoke these words after he and his wife renounced their ties to Satan and became born-again Christians last month, CBN News reported.
“… We were once covered in darkness and bound to each other in Luciferian covenant,” McKelvy said during a recent service at Spring First Church in Houston, Texas.
“We were mired in the shadows of the adversarial influence and knew no love outside of each other. Today I rebuke, denounce and break the Satanic covenant by the blood of Jesus,” he declared before he and his wife were both baptised.
McKelvy told CBN News that he became involved with Satanism after his sister died of snakebite. “There was a lot of hopelessness and feeling of powerlessness that drew me to this,” he said, adding that he was lured by the Satanic creed that “you are your own god.”
His turnaround came when he suddenly felt “a burning sensation” to go to a church in August last year. He went to Spring First Church and met Pastor Robert Hogan. Right after that meeting, McKelvy surrendered his life to Jesus Christ.
“I had this burning sensation to go in that church, so I did. Robert wasn’t there that day but he called me back. We talked on the phone two hours and then we set an interview for August 11th and we talked for 4 hours that day and I ended up giving my life over to Christ.”
McKelvy said he hopes his story of redemption will inspire others like him to turn away from the darkness and follow the life and light of Christ.
McKelvy now speaks in churches to prove the power of prayer and the love of God.
“The power and peace and wholeness I feel today is far greater than anything that I’ve ever felt before,” he said.
“I created a church to destroy dogmatic religion and he still loved me. So if he could still love me for me to be here today talking to you than there are no excuses anymore.”
Meanwhile, the Greater Church of Lucifer has closed its doors.
