At mid day yesterday, while doing chores the Lord begun talking to me about the conversation He had with Cain; Abel’s brother.
Instantly, as He spoke I knew it was a sermon. I also knew that it was to be delivered as if I was preaching to a congregation. I completed my chores and walked into my living room and begun the sermon delivery.
While I delivered the sermon, I realized I had my phone in my hand. So I paused to get rid of it. It was placed on a sofa. The sound was muted to avoid being disturbed. While doing this I realized it needed charging. So I plugged it into an adapter and went back to what I was doing.
I then decided to record the sermon. I walked to my desk, opened my laptop and begun an audio recording of the message. For approximately 40 minutes I delivered an unscripted sermon. I simply spoke as the Holy Spirit placed words in my mouth; scriptures were also referenced in the process. Now this is not new for me. Most times whenever I preach the Lord would simply tell me to go where ever He sends me. When I am at the podium that’s when I would be told the scripture. After reading, I would open my mouth and begin preaching. No sweat here! He’s never failed me.
Approximately, 40 minutes into the recording I heard shuffles in the room. Someone or something was moving behind me. I was surprised. No one should be in the house. I am alone. I spun around and realised the sound was coming from my phone. Someone was listening to me preach. The individual was walking around. The movements were being broadcast over the phone.
I was shocked when I took up the phone! The call was answered 5 minutes ago and placed on the speaker. A lady was on the phone listening to me preach. And I did not touch my phone. My back was turned to it. I did not hear the incoming call.
She said she taught about hanging up but something told her to listen. She obeyed and remained quiet. Everything I said were answers to her concerns. I ministered to her for an hour and went back to check the recording. To my surprise I realized that every point I counselled her about was in answer to what was spoken during the sermon delivery.
A few minutes later, I returned a call to one of my cousins. While we spoke the Lord told me to share my earlier experience. The moment I did the power of God fell on me. The fire of God ran all over my body, as I spoke in tongues (my heavenly language) for a few minutes. It came out with tremendous force. I had to let it pour out. I attempted to contain it but felt like I was about to burst (Jeremiah 20:9)
Two hours later, I had the same experience as I told my girlfriend what happened. It was hard for me to stop speaking in tongues.
Later in the night, God told me to go on Facebook Live to share the testimony. As I did the power of God hit me once more and I begun to prophesy to some of the people onIine. Some were specifically picked out. Although, I spoke generally at times. I knew who was being addressed. The Holy Spirit did not want very specific information to be publicly stated, as some issues were sensitive.
I wanted to give a quick testimony and come off but I was prevented. God wanted to reach someone. While I spoke a friend came on. We had not seen each other for years. The Lord told me to share my number. When we connected, I realised that the person was in need of a breakthrough. Heavy clouds of despair weighed the individual down. A life jacket was needed from the weight of life’s burdens. God needed to intervene quickly! The burdens had become far too overwhelming.
I listened while the person shared some of the challenges being faced. As I gave counsel, the Holy Spirit revealed the root of the problems, which went back to childhood days. I prayed and in that moment all the burdens were lifted. God saved a dying soul! Hope was restored. It was possible to sleep and eat again, after being unable to do so for many days.
I was overjoyed to see how God intervened to clutch someone from the brink of despair. Before everything started with the first call, He laid the foundations. On Sunday I was told to fast for 7 days. No food was to be eaten. Only water could be had during the day. I did not know the purpose of the fast but did as I was told. Thursday was day five of the fast. On this day God extended His grace to a dying soul. He used all the events to provide deliverance from the abyss of hopeless for one person. The individual felt alone and was crying out to God for help. I am in the North. The individual is in the South but God bridged the gap. He picked up the phone. My first caller for the day and the last caller shared a few commonalities: they were in the same state and both were desperately reaching for God. They dialed heaven’s hotline. God quickly picked up! In both instances He answered before they spoke.
He will do the same for you. Do not give up hope. God has answered your cry. He released help before you called. It’s on the way. The angels were released. Rest assured God has picked up your call!
“It shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear.”
~ Isaiah 65:24 New King James Version (NKJV)
This is the testimony I gave on Facebook live. It is the catalyst for the deliverance that came after. Many other breakthroughs were reported.
This is the sermon that started everything.
