A young girl trafficked by her very own parents heard God’s audible voice right before she was about to commit suicide.
Trafficked By Parents
Jessa Dillow Crisp grew up in an abusive home because of her parents’ religious cult. She had a complete family. However, her parents merely used her for gain. At home, she was used as a sex slave in exchange for money. That kind of life became a prison, and the very young Jessa found herself helpless growing up.
Jessa’s parents made her believe that the only thing she could do was to “be a prostitute.” It was the reason they gave her when she wanted to go to school at an early age. Since then, she believed that was the reason God created her. Her parents also taught her she had to be perfect, or else God would be angry. Hence, she had always feared God.
Despite the prison Jessa lived in, she knew deep inside there was hope as she looked out to other kids outside their home.
“I still knew there was something dark and evil. And that there was something light and something good,” Jessa recalled.
Encountering God In A Loud Thunder
When Jessa became a teenager, she dreamed of escaping and running away from her home. She hoped that one day someone would rescue her. The teen eventually became suicidal and cut herself.
Then at 20 years old, Jessa had the chance to go outside her home when the cult leader chose her to attend a remote camp. By then, she had already contemplated ending her life. The young lady couldn’t take it anymore and decided to commit suicide in an isolated place.
But all of a sudden, a loud thunder exploded. Then a huge lightning bolt came out from the heavens and touched the ground near her. Jessa began crying out to Jesus to save her. And an audible voice replied, “the enemy has not won. I have claimed the victory.”
What happened next revealed God’s redeeming power!
