He’s a modern-day Saul. Recruited and trained by an extremist group, Bolos’* heart was hardened as he engaged in acts of violence in Iraq – until God totally transformed his heart.
Around the same time Bolos started training with an extremist group, he discovered SAT-7 programs and watched them regularly. Eventually, his turn for a suicide mission arrived. It didn’t go as planned – he accidentally survived the attack. Having failed his mission, Bolos fled to a neighboring country.
It was there that someone gave him a Bible. The words he read in the Bible confirmed the messages he had heard on SAT-7. The Holy Spirit continued to move in his heart.
Convicted, Bolos repented and committed to follow Christ. He went so far as to dedicate his life to ministering to others as a preacher. Today, Bolos is still a minister. He has immigrated and keeps his location a secret for his own personal safety.
Murder and hate are obvious sins. But God allowed Bolos to overcome them through Jesus’ sacrifice. SAT-7 programs planted a seed of faith in Bolos during a very dark time in his life. God brought His plan for Bolos’ life to fruition at the right time.
As we continue our series on Overcoming Goliath, find out next week how Arad overcame the enormous pain of losing a child.
