She loved me to the point that she was ready to be disowned by her parents when
they wanted her to marry a rich politicians son. The love was simply so much…She
visited me for a weekend and I took her to a program in church where I was
invited… The two guest speakers for the 1st and 2nd days were wonderful…We laughed and shouted Fire and even sowed seeds of greatness… And I took my
girlfriend back to my house… But the guest speaker that came on the last day was
the one that caused the whole program for me… He did not wear any big shoe or
expensive suit… His hair cut was even scattered… Unlike other guests, he did not
have any escort or security But I noticed that the moment he climbed the pulpit, the
atmosphere changed… He started singing this song: # “Something more than gold… Something more than
The Word of God in the heart of a believer, it’s something more than gold”…# And
within 5 minutes, I began to see something like mist, like thick cloud inside that
auditorium… And it was as if, millions of voices were singing that song at the same
time. It was not long, I began to hear cries of men and women, boys and girls…: and yet, he has not opened the Bible… The church hall was tensed… You will wonder if
this is the same church we have been coming to for the past 2days…
“Lord, help me”…
“Forgive me Jesus… ”
” Don’t leave me this way”
“Jesus, I need You back… ” ” Holy spirit, break me… And use me… ” These and more were the deep cries I was hearing from people around where I
was sitting…
The choristers who were backing up the songs were slain…
Some of them did not know when they began to shout, through the microphone:”
Lord, show me your mercy… “Some were shouting:” I need your revival Lord… Will
you leave me this way”. I was afraid to open my eyes… The glory inside that house was too much… When i managed to open my eyes, I didn’t not see anybody
standing… I was the only one on feet… The pastor that hosted the program was on
the floor, in front of the church, with his wife… The assistant pastors were with him
in front of the church, crying,… The Preacher was lying flat, crying on the alter…
Nobody could know who was the Preacher and who was the speaker…As a
Preachers kid, born inside the church, I have seen revivals… I have seen the move of God’s power… But, never in my life have I seem such manifest Presence of
God…And for more than 1:45 minutes, people were rolling on the floor, crying their
hearts out… Yet, the guest minister did not open the Bible… I was still standing,
looking around for my girlfriend… But I did not see her again… When I went
outside… I saw her, lying on the floor, flat, crying… As I tried to pull her up, thinking
that something might have hurt her… I saw her blouses soaked with tears… Her voice was already cracked… She had cried her heart out…I did not care to wait for
the service to close … I managed to guide her back to my house… And throughout
that short journey, on the road, she was weeping like children… When we go home
and she managed to sleep, right from her sleep, at short intervals, she began to
sob, crying out from sleep… And before long, the pillow were already soaked…The
encounter she had in the church followed her home… And it continued like that for 3days… She was unable to eat anything… One of those nights, as she was praying
and crying, she began to burst into tongues… She was crying and was blasting
tongues, for more than 4 hours… How can I forget? The morning of the 3rd day,
she told me: “Iyke, when that young pastor was singing that song… My eyes was
opened and I saw Jesus for the first time in my life… I saw the kind of splendor I
cannot explain… I saw His wounds… I saw Him on the Cross… I saw Him calling me to surrender my life to Him… Iyke, something has happened to me… And I am no
more that same person again”. The more I tried to cuddle her, the more she was
running from my arms… She asked me: “Iyke, did you not feel what I felt? Did you
not see what I saw? What I saw is worth more than the whole world. I saw a Crown
that I cannot lose… Iyke, I have to surrender to Jesus… I have to pack my things
now…” Before 30 minutes, she had picked her few things and about to go… As she was leaving, we both were in tears… She told me: “Iyke, I know I love you and you
love me too…. But I have to let you go. This moment, I have surrendered to Jesus….
It will better to lose you than to lose that Crown that I saw. ..” Tears had dried on
our bodies and fresh ones were coming. I could not even stop her… The girl I knew
before had changed… Her face was radiant… It dawned on me that that young man
of God has made me lose the girlfriend I loved so much… And I was angry… As I roll from one part of the bed to the other, alone, inside my
room, from morning till night… I began to blame myself for taking her along to that
program… Don’t blame me… I was not born again then…Where else was I going to
see another girl who will love me like her? I was furious… Yes, but deep down my
heart, I knew that she has met God… I knew that this was exactly how it used to be
in 1980s and 90s… On my own, I began to tel God: “If I will ever become a Preacher someday, this is the type I want to be… I will love people to come to my program
and lose their girlfriends to You…” And thank God, in the fullness of time, when it
pleases Him to intercept me from speedy journey to hell, I understood what
happened those days to my ex girlfriend…Severally, I have seen that same thing
she saw that made her lose me and not care about it. Friend, if you see what she
saw, you will never be afraid to lose any man…. Paul said that when he fell and stood up on his way to Damascus, ‘I saw no man’… Why
are you afraid for us that we will starve if we continue with this ‘criticizing’ ministry?
Why are you complaining that nobody will host us in his big auditorium and give us
big honorarium Thanks for your concern brother man… But we can tell the whole
world that ‘We too, like Apostle Paul, saw no man’… We did not see honorarium
before we left all and embarked on this journey.. We saw a Crown that we must not lose on the last day…Many are already wearing their own crowns here… They have
forgotten the encounters God used to give them when they first met Jesus… Lord,
anybody can go… I don’t want to lose the glory you showed me! …We don’t need
too many friends…We don’t need those who wants to show everyone that they are
succeeding in ministry, even when, they are not known in hell… Our lives are better
with fewer people whose eyes are still on that Crown…With the help of God, in our weaknesses and fewness, if it please God, we might be able to stop the mouth of
lions…That was how that young man made me to lose my girlfriend.. My friends told
me to give her some time that she will run back to me when memories of our sinful
past will begin to hunt her…I waited for months and years, up till now, she did not
come back… Together, with her husband, they are running a revival ministry in my
country Nigeria… And she too is reading this post now as you are reading it… Haleluya!
Man of God, I don’t know the last time people listened to you and they went back
and move their things out from their boyfriends house and that was their last days
in sin? When was the last time you preached and boys called their girlfriends on
the phone and told them: “It is over… I have met with Jesus…. And am gone”,? Your
last crusade, you came back with car keys… Laptops, iphones and landed documents… But there was no tears for repentance… Sinners came as Sinners,
sowed their seeds as Sinners and left as Sinners….When again are we going to
see you preach and men will start falling over another, even without altar call,
asking God for repentance for their adultery? Your choristers are already singing
with sneered hearts… When are we going to hear somebody say about you, that:
“This is that man of God that I heard and I left my sins and did not go back to them again? Sister, I don’t know what they are telling you in your church every Sunday…
I know you want to shun your evil ways, but the church you submitted to seem not
to have problem with your sinful lifestyle… From year to year, they don’t preach
against sin…. Only giving you 100 ways to make wealth, even when you are sinking
miserably in sin and addictions… The abuse of the gospel of miracle visa, miracle
marriage, miracle contracts, and fighting of enemies is what brought this demonic wind upon us… Jacob had all those things and yet, he was crying to God for an
encounter… And when He had it, that’s why we are still talking about him till now…
Lock your self up this weekend and cry to God for that same encounter… If He has
not shown up, don’t give up… If my ex girlfriend made up her mind to walk out from
our relationship, there must be something she saw that’s worth more than me…
Today, she is happily married with wonderful children… That God she saw that night has not failed her…
That thing she saw has kept her all these years… I know you are afraid of what will
become of you when you cut some ties… Sister, stop playing church while you are
feasting on your vomits…
It’s time to cry for an encounter… How long will you keep falling and rising and
falling again? It’s time to cry for just one touch of Fire,… Am sure heaven will not shun your wet
eyes and torn lips… #WeWaitOnYouJESUS
