Broadcast Bring Deliverance
in a gang that dealt drugs and smuggled stolen goods, Edwin was far from
God. This young Guatemalan joined the satanic sect “Servants of
the Antichrist” and made a pact, sealed with his own blood, that
he was willing to trade his own soul for power. He had reached the sixth
of seven levels of occultism. In fact, he was a under a curse that said,
“The day you talk about all this, your mouth will be worm-eaten.”
In this midst of dramatic circumstances,
Edwin Ambrosio Quej received Jesus Christ as Savior. Now in Christian
circles, he met a young woman, and they married. But to escape his old
lifestyle, he moved from Guatemala City to Monjas, Jalapa. There Edwin
found employment in a welding shop owned by Eden Zepeda, the program director
of the Nazarene radio station, Faro Estereo (Lighthouse Radio).
Later, when Edwin had problems with his employer, they agreed that a public
testimony was needed to break the curse. Five days of radio broadcasts
were scheduled from 2:00 to 3:00 each afternoon. Señor Zepeda interviewed
Edwin during these special programs. The listeners were warned to reject
any relationship with occultist beliefs, and the two men emphasized that
real peace and security can only be found in Jesus.
After the third day, people involved in the occult went to Edwin’s
house during the night and left a symbolic threat on the door of his home.
But he would not be intimidated. On the last day of the broadcasts, Edwin
publicly broke the items, such as the half-moon, that he had used in satanic
What happened that week in Guatemala is significant. Edwin experienced
peace and deliverance by giving his testimony over the airwaves. And since
many non-Christians listen to Faro Estereo, they heard about the deliverance
that the gospel brings. Faith comes through hearing, and God promises
that His Word will not return void.
The faithful and generous giving of Nazarenes to World Mission Broadcast
is making a difference in thousands of people. And for Edwin it helped
bring deliverance from the occult.
