As you may have gathered, I am the older brother of David Clarke, the team leader of the ‘Trojan Horse Mission’ and it is my privilege and honour to use this opportunity to tell you that the Bible is FACT and not fiction, and Jesus Christ is ALIVE.
In this testimony I will only highlight certain parts of my life, as David has already covered some of it in his book ‘Converted on LSD trip’
In addition to this, I invite you to access our web-site ‘Michael’s Story’, which shows quite clearly how God allows evil, (which in my case was the fabricated criminal case brought against me) in order to show that he is the Almighty God. Everything that happens is the bringing to pass of His Divine plan, which was conceived in Eternity.
Prior to my first visit to the Philippines in February 1995, my concept of Christianity only believed that there was a God, and that was enough. I considered myself to be ‘normal’ and in control of my own destiny – how wrong I was!
As a tourist I first stayed in Angeles and Olongapo cities. I was amazed at the abundance of ‘Girlie Bars’ and nightlife. It was crystal clear that sex was on the menu at a very low price.
On my return to England I formed my very own ‘Paradise Express’ travel business, the aim of which was to offer low cost holidays to my fellow countrymen. I thought I was on to a winner, because there are no such things as ‘Girlie Bars’ in England.
To cut the story short, within a few months my business was up and running and I returned to the Philippines to welcome my first influx of customers.
On June 5th 1995 I was arrested for promoting child prostitution, and later sentenced to 14 to 16 years’ imprisonment. I have, and always will, protest my innocence. There were no child victims or child complainants; my reference to girls was only a general reference to girls as in ‘Spice Girls’, the pop group. I was not promoting children; I want to establish that in your mind.
After this, as you can imagine, I was very bitter and full of hate. Why, why, why have I been wrongly convicted, I would ask myself. I just could not understand why God would allow such a thing. Suicide was constantly on my mind.
A foreign Christian Missionary worker who encouraged me to seek the Lord for the answer to this big question then gave me a bible.
For the next few years I read the bible, and attended numerous so-called Christian gatherings, all of which seemed to differ in their interpretation of the Scriptures, which left me more confused. One day my friend Suny Wilson was acquitted from Death Row, and on his release gave me a book ‘Mere Christianity’ by CS Lewis. After reading it my eyes were opened to the truth. Everything began to make sense and I was drawn unknowingly to ‘Jesus is the Christ’ fellowship. Rev. Joseph Kim was the head pastor. He could see that I was thirsty and over a period of several months loaned me a vast array of books, which he assured me, would illuminate my mind further regarding this great mystery of mankind’s creation.
I soon realized that for the last four years the Lord had been pulling me to him. He broke my yoke of bondage – I was saved from the power of Satan and given eternal Life. God revealed to me that he had to let me taste a little bit of hell in order to save my soul. By God’s Grace alone I was saved. He gave me faith and the ability to repent from my former life.
After I was reborn, the Holy Spirit became very active in my life, and taught me to forgive the people responsible for my wrongful conviction. The power of Christ led me by force to a makeshift baptism in a 45-gallon ex-oil drum, in order to proclaim to the world that I was indeed one of God’s chosen people. With me were 24 other believers who were baptized unto death and new life in Christ.
I have now devoted my life to the Lord and urge everyone to read, study, and meditate on some Words of scripture: The Book of John, chapter 3. Humble yourselves and ask God to come into your lives.
If anyone feels the need to write to me, please do not hesitate, as that would be a sure sign that God is drawing you near to Him. Please use my address in England for correspondence. I pray to the Lord that he may Bless everyone who reads this book and I ask the Holy Spirit to guide them to the Book of Revelation 12.11
Thank you for reading my testimony David and I have put together our story and his mission to the Philippines in joint book , Trojan Warriors that contains the testimony of 66 notorious convicted criminals, in New Bilibid Prison, that have become Christians.

Message to the World (August 11th 2001)
From Michael J. Clarke
It is my pleasure and to the GLORY OF GOD to proclaim that by God’s Grace I have been saved from the power of sin and hell. Through FAITH and BELIEF that JESUS IS THE CHRIST I have now been granted ETERNAL LIFE.
This same offer of Salvation is available to anyone who truly believes. The Bible is FACT not fiction and I implore everyone to read, study and meditate on John 3 and ask the Lord to have mercy on your soul.
It is my prayer that my plea will also touch the hearts of all the bar owners and operators in Angeles City who knew me in 1995 when I was operating my Paradise Express travel business. Even though they know that I was charged and convicted for a crime that was totally fabricated, it doesn’t alter the fact that the life I was then living was saturated in sin. My master was the devil, of which I was totally ignorant. It is my duty to tell you that you are all being totally deceived and living in a false paradise. Take heed of my words of truth and change your life’s direction, with JESUS at the helm. I am not telling you to abandon your business! Just change the menu, kick out sin and promote tourism of a different nature in this beautiful country and your rewards will surpass your wildest dreams.
I have now completely forgiven my complainant and pray for his soul. I realize that God allowed him to be used by Satan in order to bring about my salvation.
At 10 am on August 12th I will be giving my testimony live on the Internet, God willing, here in Bilibid Prison. My brother David is the team leader of the ‘Trojan Horse Mission’ whose aim is ‘Setting captives free’.

May god Bless you all, signed Michael John Clarke.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT
By Michael Clarke
A MESSAGE TO ALL MY BROTHERS IN CHRIST
We are at war and as Christians we become members of ‘God’s Army’. We are all involved in this warfare whether we like it or not, and whether we are aware of it or not. Heaven’s war is now on EARTH and it’s no joke!
The Bible clearly tells us that the ‘origin’ of this war began in the cosmic realm, before the creation of man, in an ‘Angelic’ rebellion against the ‘Lordship of God’
How could such a rebellion happen in the presence of our God Almighty? The Scriptures help us with this (Deut 29-29) ‘The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things are revealed which belong to us and to our children forever.’
This war will not end until the final judgment of evil supernaturalism. Until this final judgment, Satan, together with 1/3 of God’s former angels that he managed to persuade to join him, will continue and become positively worse. – ‘The number of fallen angels is unknown’
Assured of victory
Although the Scriptures clearly show that God will have the final victory in this war, the battle will continue with Satan’s army doing its utmost to try and stop mankind being re-united to its rightful Father, God Almighty.
Once we accept this reality we need to condition ourselves, so to speak, and put on our ‘Spiritual Glasses’ of Warfare. If we underestimate this warning we will, without a shadow of a doubt, become casualties of war. The Bible itself is a training manual for all God’s Army. However, to make us more efficient, God has inspired many Christian writers, who have had first hand experience of life in the mission-field, to highlight the importance of this training, together with the dangers that await the unprepared. God’s message on this topic is readily available in Christian bookstores and public libraries. Good instruction on this subject awaits all that are prepared to join a Bible study class.
Knowing the enemy (2 Cor. 2-11)
‘Lest Satan should take advantage of us, for we are not ignorant of his devices’
Unfortunately many Christians have a false sense of security! They tend to focus all their attention on Jesus and ignore the abundance of scriptural warnings. When this happens the adversary is delighted and his ‘soldier demons’ will attack
(1Pet 5-8) ‘ Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary the Devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.’
Scripture clearly shows that it is possible for true Christians to be devoured by the Devil because the warning was given directly to them, but this does not mean that we shall loose our salvation because that is impossible. We shall suffer calamity for not abiding in God’s armor. To confirm this read 1Tim 3-6 and 2 Tim 2-26. Also Paul warns us of this reality in 2Cor 11-3.
This is best described as a ‘sin war’ in three dimensions:
1. Sin is personal, it comes from within. It is our fallen nature, which is always inclined towards evil. The classic description of this inner warfare of our flesh against the indwelling Holy Spirit is found in Gal. 5 16-21.
2. Sin is social, it comes from without. This is the problem of the world with all its temptations. The classic description of social sin is found in 1 John 2 15-17.
3 Sin is supernatural; it comes from above, directly from Satan and his demons, principalities and his powers. Eph. 6.12
The third dimension is the most difficult to understand and to handle. It is also the most frightening:
DEMONS. What are demons? God has not chosen to reveal the origin of demons, but it appears that they are not in the same class as the fallen angels, but are somehow directly associated with Satan’s rebellion and are members of his Army. Having said this we can conclude that demons are individuals with supernatural evil powers.
My main concern is to draw your attention to the reality of these powers. To underestimate this fact is fatal, just as to overestimate the problem could also make things difficult for Christians. Satan can and will take advantage of both these situations. However if we reject these powers, we must come up with another reason for the Son of God having come into this world.
Having said that we can be sure of ample protection, not only from the direct indwelling of the Holy Spirit, but also the ever present protection of God’s own Angels and their powers, which, according to Scripture is twice that of Satan.
Demons are best described as evil spirits assigned to individuals on a personal level, whose main purpose is to influence the individual’s mind and to control their will. This is what the Scriptures mean by ‘demon possessed’ This does not mean possession, as this implies total ownership. Satan and his demons don’t own anything apart from their own evil. They are usurpers. God owns everything. However God holds all persons responsible for their own actions, and it must be understood that there are different levels of denomination, ranging from mild to very extreme.
Can Christians be demonized?
Most believers would hold the negative view based on the assumption that the Holy Spirit will not or cannot dwell in the same body as demons. There is not a single verse of Scripture, which states that true believers cannot under any circumstances be demonized. On the contrary, Scripture is full of warnings of such a possibility.
The presence of the Holy Spirit does not, of itself, prevent denomination, just as it does not, in itself, prevent the Christian from sinning. The Holy Spirit is not afraid of demons, and will enter the body of a believer even if they are there. All believers prior to conversion have become demonized to some degree, and, the amount of sin and the amount of power it had over them will determine the amount of power needed to completely free them from this bondage of sin. In a lot of cases it is a matter of the person still dwelling on their past, which is used by the demons to torment them.
A study of the writings of the early church fathers reveals that they understood that the Christians could be demonized. Because of this they created a ‘Lay order’s exorcists who took new believers through deliverance after their conversion to Christ and before their public Baptism.
Worldwide contemporary experience is now unanimous in the view that some true
Christians under unusual conditions of sin can be demonized. It is also possible for a believer to have picked up a demon or demons after conversion, through their own sin and/or the serious sin of others committed against them. It could also be caused by heredity, parental rejection, and contact with demonized persons, curses and even rock music. These are just some of the ways that the demons gain entry either before or after conversion to the body or the mind and hide deeply within the person’s structure. It is through lack of discernment and ignorance that Christians render themselves so vulnerable to demon attack. Example: Let us assume that our body is a house, and in that house there is a basement, which we shall call our inner structure. In this basement there is ‘garbage’ which in our case is our emotional and/or spiritual ‘garbage’. Demons are like rats – they feed on ‘garbage’ In some cases this garbage has been there for years and will take a lot of time and effort to remove. If it is not removed the demons will continue to feed. Likewise if the rats are removed and the garbage remains, they will surely return, with others, and continue to feed.
The Answer: In most cases a person can handle this problem themselves. The new life of every born again believer is in constant battle with the old self, and in this battle the Holy Spirit which is inside them is constantly bringing to the surface all this deep- rooted garbage, which is brought before the Lord by way of repentance. This is ‘sin garbage’
True Repentance: If you only repent ‘ about’ or ‘over’ this ‘sin garbage’ it will remain like food for the demons to feed on! You must repent from your sins, which will leave them dead. This is very important; otherwise it will have no effect. Your repentance must be a sincere pledge …you must clean the basement.
Final words: Please heed my warning! This war is Real. If you feel that you want to know more about this warfare I highly recommend the following books –
