I Am Dying…Given A Week left

Hello friends and family,

First, I want to declare to you all, that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. He saved me, apart from my works done in righteousness. But because of His mercy, He has clothed me in His righteousness. Nothing, will be ever good enough to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, apart from the saving and blessed work of Christ Jesus, Ruler of all!

I want to also thank each and everyone of you all who has prayed for myself and my wife, Carisa. We are so grateful. The Lord shows His kindness and works through the prayers and good works of His people. We love God’s people.

This blog was started to make sure people were informed about my disease and the progress of treatment. Now, it must come to an end.

Today my wife and I were given the news that there is no more treatment left. My doctor, does not want to continue with treatment. My body is not handling it well, and apart from delaying the inevitable, the treatment is just not working anymore. We ask for your prayers.

I have been given a week left to live. This seems pretty sudden and might come as a shock to many, but I can honestly say that I have tried my best to fight.

We don’t know God’s secret purposes. He is sovereign and above all a good and gracious God. We must now seek to trust Him, as we move towards the conclusion of my life.

Again, please be in prayer for my wife, and my family. We have family coming to visit and they plan on helping my wife with anything she needs.

Love you all. May the Lord bless you.

SDG.

  1. Dear Brother:I am nobody from nowhere.You have been a repeated encouragement to me as you have faithfully and courageously fought this good fight–a good fight of the faith.I will pray that in the coming days our gracious and merciful King will sustain you and Carisa with joy indescribable and peace overwhelming–that your hearts and kinds will be guarded in and by Christ Jesus.I humbly ask to be added to what I’m sure is a long list of people who will vow to love, care, and support Carisa in any way possible. I know she doesn’t know me, but I am her servant in Christ.Your brother in Christ, TonySent via the Samsung Galaxy S7 active, an AT&T 4G LTE smartphone

      You are an amazing person and a wonderful example of a true Christian. Our church was blessed to have you as one our elders and I feel so blessed to have you and Carisa as friends in Christ. God bless you both.

  2. Dear Jorge,

    I have just prayed this morning for you. As you wrote this is a shock to read. However, God is above everything and we trust in Him and His purposes. I do pray for healing. Lord, touch Jorge’s body and heal him. He is your child. You are God of victory.
    Love you my brother,

  3. Dear Jorge,
    I am so saddened to hear this news. You have fought a valiant fight. The Lord has other plans for your next journey in life. He has prepared you and Carisa and given you the blessing of seeing each other through together. I will always be there for her and know the Lord will carry her for you. I feel blessed to have known you this short while of your life here on earth and it is an honor to be able to have communication with you as the Lord prepares to take you home. I did not have this opportunity when I lost my fiancé this past October. Also being in a new state, city, job but Carisa is strong and she will be fine in God’s hands. I pray for you and Carisa at this time to be strong and trust in the Lord’s decisions. Sending my love, Sondra

  4. Jorge, we want to say so much! But, what you wrote at the top will be saved and remembered in our hearts, as an encouragement that God “Alone” is everything! We will not give up in our prayer effort, what ever the future brings! “The Lord is in control” and it is a testament to us, that you have not taken your eyes off of Him. “Praise God” We thank the Lord “Jesus” for bringing you into our lives! Jorge you are a courageous Man of God, and that is what will carry you through! Carisa, there is a long list of loving Brothers & Sisters at Grace Bible waiting to reach out in anyway that would be most helpful to you!! Love you Jorge & Carisa

  5. Jorge, my friend I am speechless. I cannot add to your or anyone else words. I will trust the Lord just wants his faithful servant with Him. Please know that I will continue the support as long as Carisa is in need and prayers for her will never cease. Humbly blessed to know you my friend!

  6. Praying for you young man. It’s good to hear that you know the Lord Jesus as your Savior that is a definite plus.

    Will keep your wife and family up in prayer also. Our God is a miracle worker . If he chooses he can extend your life another 15 years but if it’s your time to come home that’s a blessing also.

    If you have any interest there is a guy Dr Joel Wallach talks a lot about cancer perhaps he can give you some encouragement.

    God bless you Bro my name is Eddie

  8. Dear Jorge-

    I was provided with Psalm 139:3-5 TPT just a week ago and it has given me such powerful encouragement and faith in how God thinks and cares for His children:

    3–4 You are so intimately aware of me, Lord.
    You read my heart like an open book
    and you know all the words I’m about to speak
    before I even start a sentence!
    You know every step I will take before my journey even begins.
    5 You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way,
    and in kindness, you follow behind me
    to spare me from the harm of my past.[a]
    With your hand of love upon my life,
    You impart a blessing to me.

    God knows the beginning from the end and He is with you through it all.

    Your letter to all to express your gratitude is absolutely priceless. How you speak about the Lord in the midst of your current state is so heart-warming and inspirational. Your witness is a gift to all of us that we will remember and be strengthened by. It’s like that beautiful Job-like expression when through all God allowed him to go through, he exclaimed to God, “Yet, I will worship you.” And with that faith, God imparted a blessing unto Job in unfathomable ways.

    With that said, I ask God to impart a blessing upon your life in unfathomable ways. I ask that His Supernatural power reign over your body and by His power, allow your body to perform in the perfection that He designed our bodies to function. “For greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world.” In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

    He loves you, He is always by your side, and He will never leave you.

    In His Mercy,

    Grace

  10. Jorge I have always been so encouraged and inspired of your strong faith in the Lord throughout this journey you and Carisa have been on. I have and will continue to pray that you will have time to be reunited with your family, you will be in His complete Peace as you are preparing to meet The glorious King of Kings and receive your crown at His throne. Our prayers will be with your precious Carisa that she will experience the support and love from family and friends. I so appreciate your beautiful friendship with our son Andrew and Daisy, and know how special your relationship has been since you both met at Masters College and were in each other’s weddings what special memories! We love you Jorge and Carisa and pray for strength, Grace and even His incredible Joy as you are ushered into His Presence in His Perfect time! Love you both so very much! David and Linda Felts

  11. Dear Brother Jorge,
    We know that the Lord reigns supreme and He alone knows the number of our days. May He breathe into you His life-giving Spirit to strengthen and sustain you for all of your days. I pray that His manifest Presence be there with you, your wife, and family and that He grant all that you ask of Him, in Jesus’ name.

  12. Jorge,
    You are my friend’s friend, and I am honored to be reading your message as you have reached the conclusion of your medical treatment. One week does seem short, and yet a part of me wants to shout with joy, that you are so very close to entering into eternal life with out Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I’m praying for your healing, and find peace knowing that whatever the outcome, our Lord “has this” right as it should be.

  13. Dear Brother, may the peace of God, rest, rule and abide in every fiber of your being. I pray His peace for you and your family and friends. His ways are always better, my Pastor would often remind us, even when we didn’t fully understand. Our confidence was in the living Word, the Truth, the way and the life, our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. Know that you are loved beyond measure, by a God who knew how to demonstrate that by giving us His Son (our conquering King). Take comfort in the one who is the God of all comfort. Pamela Bennett

  15. Jorge – My Dear Brother in Christ,

    God remains in the healing business, and when man says no, God says yes!

    You are healed, irrespective of what the circumstances look like. God works miracles every second of the day.

    I am thanking God for healing your body from the top of your head to the soles of your feet…because Jesus bore our sicknesses and weaknesses on the cross, and by His stripes, we “were” healed.

    I will continue to pray for you and your family, and continue to thank God for your healing miracle.

    God bless and keep you and your family, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen & Amen.

    Your Sister in Christ,

    He has kept you, brother. You kept the faith, you fought the good fight.

    Death cannot separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus, which is why the Bible can talk about the dead “in Christ.”

    It was such a joy having you as a friend, and growing in the Lord together. I have wept for you and Carisa, but know they are tears of joy.

  17. Dear Jorge,
    Today is your and Carissa’s Wedding Anniversary. God Bless you both. We remember your beautiful wedding day. We love you both, and feel so fortunate to have known you.

    Your faith in God and your love for him is very inspirational. As you said we don’t know God’s secrets, and we don’t understand His ways. But all things happen for a reason. We continue to pray for peace for you and your families at this difficult time.

    You are surrounded by the Love of God and his angels.

    Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer…Romans 12:12

    I thank you for your confidence and bold assurance expressed through your words. In my heart of hearts, I pray for your healing so that it is a powerful testimony for all. Yet, your words display an assurance of salvation, hope and who you belong too. Your words are a testimony to life and the Father we serve.

  22. Jorge,

    I have never met you.. but I got the wind of this news from Andrew Wong.
    As a fellow brother in christ, I will pray for your last days to be the most fruitful as ever. I will also pray for your family and wife.
    I wish I can say things to make things better… but I cannot nor do I have the power to make things better. All I know is… God, our loving loving father has a plan for you and your family. Only he knows the plan.
    A lot of the times, we wish we can have it our way…and even though I never met you… in my wicked heart it screams for you to avoid this moment in your life… but as the bible says:
    “A man’s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.” – proverbs 16:9
    As I said before, he knows what is best for us because he loves us more than anyone on this planet.
    Jorge, I love you man. I don’t even know what you look like… but I love you because you are my brother!
    May God hold your hand firm as you walk with him! I will pray for you tonight with my wife!
    GOD BLESS YOU! YOU ARE LOVED BY US AND ABOVE THAT… YOU ARE LOVED BY JESUS!
    ps. my grandmother recently passed away, if you happen to meet her, tell her Andy loves her!

    God will give you strength and comfort to handle this. You will soon be in a magnificent paradise that we all can only hope to see one day. I don’t know you, but you have touched me tremendously with your blog. I’m sure you have touched many others too in a positive way. I will pray that God give your family strength and comfort too.
