I had a very disturbing dream in February 2012, I prayed about it and went on with my day.
Shortly after that dream/day, some things went wrong. My promising relationship ended for no just cause and I got a negative doctor's report.
I also started having strange dreams every night, not every other night or once or twice a week, it was every night I laid down to sleep. The moment I closed my eyes to sleep, within thirty minutes I'm up sweating due to nightmares (they were very demonic). I would stay awake praying or just keep my eyes open for the rest of the night till morning. The harder I prayed before bed, the more intense the dream/attack. I dreaded going to bed, going to bed was like going to war. I avoided passing nights at friends or family member's houses because it's no telling the type of dream I would have. I prayed for peace and rest, fasted, spoke to some men of God, trusted God but the attacks/torments continued for years.
I was always tired during the day but I eventually got used to not sleeping or sleeping and jumping out of my sleep sweating profusely.
August 2020, I sent my first message to Pastor David via WhatsApp. I prayed to God that Pastor David would understand me and pray for me. He acknowledged my message and set a time to call him. I called him, told him about the long-standing attacks, I told him I had done all I knew to do and I was drained and tired. He asked me to go on a 3-day fast with some prayer points and to pray in the spirit.
I called him back after the fast, he prayed with me very aggressively, he also counseled me. Pastor told me he already saw me as a free/delivered person the first time I called him, he also declared to me "by this time next year, you are married" we both hung up.
I remember calling him again weeks later because I had a very terrifying dream, as I was telling him that I jumped up to pray, he told me to stop allowing the devil to manipulate my sleep. He said just cancel the dream and go back to sleep. It sounded like something simple to do but it was very hard for me.
He told me to read Ephesians 2 vs 6 and 1 vs 20-21, to establish my victory by my faith and the word of God, to stand my ground in Jesus Christ, to cast out all fears and doubts.
The biggest one he emphasized was to change my mindset (he stayed on this for a while) which happened to be the one I struggled with. I prayed desperately to God for my mindset to change, gradually I started seeing some changes though I was still on edge.
I started believing in my victory one afternoon in September after I took a nap because that never happened, I always kept myself engaged in order not to fall asleep.
October 2020, two days after the Tehilah Praise Night, Pastor Margaret made a courtesy call to me (first time with her one on one), she asked to pray with me. As she was praying, she kept saying restoration, a major restoration is coming, she repeated that line a lot. I opened my eyes during the prayers and wondered why the word 'restoration'. The prayers ended, we hung up.
On the recap call we had for the Tehilah Night, we were sharing our experiences of Tehilah Night, I shared that I enjoyed it a lot though I watched it alone and Pastor said "by this time next year you won't be alone".
October 30, I unexpectedly lost my job of many years due to company reorganization. I was numb, I couldn't call anyone to talk about what just happened.
Two days after I lost my job, we had a church meeting, Pastor David said we are not to complain for three days. I chuckled and said to myself if only Pastor knew what just happened to me. He said "do not complain" over and over. At a point, I knew God was speaking through the pastor to me not to complain because I was really about to unleash my complaints.
In the midst of all that was going on, I met a great guy, I couldn't focus on him because I was jobless, securing another good job was a priority to me.
Few days into January 2021 and into our 21 days fast, I got a temporary position with the same company. I was very happy, I quickly shared the testimony here.
To the Glory of God, a relationship between the gentleman and I progressed, it did not fizzle this time around like the previous ones.
Pastor David and Pastor Margaret were very gracious to us, they conducted our pre-marital counseling to get us off on a great and solid foundation.
In the midst of planning the wedding, I suddenly got a job interview for a position I applied for in February (I had forgotten about the application).
I scaled through the first, second, and third interviews by the grace of God.
God is amazingly faithful, the week I started the new position was the same week I got married. So I was in training for two days in the new position then ran off to get married then came back to continue training.
I'm so humbled, I'm in awe of God, I've seen the goodness of God. I look back few months ago and I'm just stunned at how God turned it all around so quickly.
He used Pastors David & Margaret (Hosea 12 vs 13). I sleep better now, I wake up on my own terms, my job has been restored, and it's way better in every way than the one I lost.
I got married two weeks ago to a very great guy from a loving family.
My heart is full of gratitude to God, I'll praise God forever.
Pastor, thank you for listening to me, praying, and shaking fear off my mind.
I have had 6 spinal surgeries and had been in so much pain and despair that I wanted to commit suicide. I was having frequent panic attacks and could not sleep. That is until I met Jesus at the Healing and deliverance service. For the first time in 4 years I walked without a walker and could climb a flight of stairs. Praise God.
I lost my job in January 2018 and the Man of God prophesied that I will get my dream job with a particular company that I wanted before April 2nd and It happened exactly as was prophesied and with double the pay. As if that was not enough I got a pay raise before I resumed the job and so many pecks. This God is too good!!!
After 6 years of uncountable miscarriages and a medical blunder that almost killed me, Jesus gave me a bouncing baby girl. In that same year Jesus supernaturally gave me my dream business. Praise the Lord!
My Sister, Pam, fell into coma after an attack and I called Pastor David Okumgba to pray for my sister after 2 days in a medical coma. He said I should go to the hospital and call him from the hospital. I sent my daughter and when she called him, he asked her to put the phone in the ears of my sister, Pam, and he prayed and she came out of the medical Coma. She is still alive today. I give God all the glory in Jesus name!
In 2006 I met the man of God Pastor David Okumgba in PORT HARCOURT NIGERIA where I complained bitterly about stagnation and frustration at my job and he casually said I will head my department. I was angry at his casual statement and grumbled as I was leaving that he does not know what he was talking about nor does he understand the nature of my office, but to the glory of God after that prophecy everything changed at my job and in 2016. I became head of that department according to the word of the man of God. Praise God!
2017 was a tough year. I lost everything; job, home etc but God restored everything back to me. We give him all the glory.
The same week I was fired from my job, God gave me another job with better pay and those that fired me called me to apologize and offered me my old position back. GOD IS GREAT!!
Supernaturally God resolved a difficult situation I had with my academics, I passed my board exams and got a plum job. God is great.
I could not sleep for weeks at a time even with sleeping aids and God healed me supernaturally.
God resolved a major legal issue in my favor. Praise God!
My blood pressure shut up rapidly with splitting migraine headache. It was so bad that for 4 days i could not speak out nor stay in a lighted environment, until jesus healed me without any medication. My blood pressure is back to normal and i can shout hallelujah! Praise god!
I was hopeless, homeless, broke and going no where fast until I met Jesus about five months ago and within that period my whole life has changed for the better. I now have hope, I have a job, I have my own apartment and recently bought a car. Now I have a direction for my life and am working towards becoming a blessing and adding value to the lives of others every day. Praise God! God is good!
In pursuit of my dream of owning a daycare facility I had saved tens of thousands of dollars over many years of hard work which I invested to lease and remodel a space for my dream business over 2 years ago. The landlord took the money and did not use it for the purpose, and I could not use the space or get my money back. We have been bickering back and forth over the years until recently by the grace of God the landlord returned my money back to me. Praise God!
When Brother Paul Archer gave us a leaflet of a coming conference, I felt I needed to be in this meeting at least for a day but my diary was fully booked for the weekend with things like officiating a wedding which could not be changed. As continued to pray for this meeting and those who were intending to attend, I somehow knew that I could go to this meeting although I didn’t know how. Miraculously, the wedding was cancelled and i definitely knew I was to attend the meeting. So I talked to my husband and he said it was ok for me to go for Friday and Saturday. I quickly arranged with my two friends. On long awaited day came and off went set for Uttoxeter. I was a bit careful though as I went to this meeting because a lot of drama is happening in the name of prophecy and deliverance. So my spiritual antennae were high up because I did not intend to pick up anything that was not Godly. Because of this, I was able to quickly discern the Spirit of God in the man of God David and then I said, ‘Father, here I am, I want to receive everything that is going to be poured in these meetings’. I was not disappointed. The man of God ministered with great humility and with untold authority directly from the Father. I was greatly blessed, no, wrecked and spoilt for God is the right expression. As Pastor David Okumgba taught, I learnt a lot of truths from the word of God that I had not realised before. For example a person would be oppressed of the devil and even not know it until it is triggered by something like when Jesus entered into the Temple and the demons cried ‘What do we have to do with you Jesus, are you coming to destroy us?’ As each truth dawned on me, the only thing I could say was ‘wow! That’s right!’ I was delivered of fear. I had not realised how oppressed I was by this. Because of fear, there was an open doorway where the enemy could use other people even in church and this could really affect me even physically. Praise God, now I am set free by the Son of God. The climax of the meeting was the anointing service. I have never experienced anything like it. First, the man of God explained about the three kinds of anointing, I had heard and studied about them but I had never applied the principle in my life. The leper’s anointing, the Priestly anointing and the Kingly anointing. As the Man of God taught, I could not wait to be anointed. I was so excited. When He finally did, it seemed liked a warm blanket wrapped me and off I fell under the anointing. I am not a very demonstrative person but I could hardly stand on my feet. Every time I stand to minister this same blanket comes over me and then I know that the one I love is standing right there with me. I have never been anointed like that before. I felt like I was being submerged in the love of my Father, I felt clean and loved. I have never felt the presence of God so imminent as it was that Saturday afternoon. I felt peace which remains to this day. Everything that happened to me in that meeting, was not just passing tingle on my back, it has continued to this day. I knew this was my meeting and Pastor David the right man be ministering. There is a tremendous anointing that came through with a lot of humility and this ministered to me a lot. There are so many things that happened to me during this meeting that I have not known yet. Saturday evening came and we had to travel back home in Sheffield because I was preaching the following morning. I started seeing the result of the anointing from the conference straight away. I have seen more results of healing and deliverance as I minister to my members. I ministered with more boldness now as Pastor David, kept on telling us, ‘I am anointed and I am appointed and I shall not be disappointed.’ I have not been disappointed since that meeting. The anointing of God that flowed through the man of God has continued to flow through me and to His precious people. I just want to tell Pastor David, thank you so much for coming to the UK just for me. The results of that conference may not be known on this side of eternity. Also thank you Brother Paul for inviting me and my friend Betty and Joan. They have shared with me how their lives were changed also. May Our Abba bless you all as you go out and as you come in.
I am using this opportunity to testify to the faithfulness of the Almighty God. The God of Shiloh Tabernacle. I call him Omeluokpukpu Ogholummadu, meaning the one that turned dry bones into a complete human being. I call him The express route in the wilderness, the Defender of the defenseless, the way maker, the Concrete in the ocean, the Candle in the tabernacle. The Restorer of life, Impossibility specialist. My sisters and my brothers please join me and my family to thank this great God for what he has done for us.
Last year, I was diagnosed with a heart condition I have had since childhood. It had to do with a valve in my heart. The doctors said the only way to fix was through open-heart surgery. It was a tough one but the God who is tougher than the toughest made it easy.
Last month I had the open-heart surgery and the God who is true to his word saw me through it. He did it as if nothing happened.
Please my brothers and sisters join me and my family to tell this great God thank you.
I want to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to Pastor Margaret and Pastor David who stood by my family all through. The Almighty God reward you and your precious family. A big thank you to Dr. Laura who is always there for me and my family. Thank you very much Shiloh family. God bless you all and grant you the desires of your heart.
My sister gave me Reverend David Okumgba's phone number when I was waiting for my second lung transplant after a lung failure. Despite the fact that I was using oxygen to help me to breathe, he prayed for me and promised to continue praying for me until he gets results. I did not expect to hear back from him. And then I waited for days, weeks, and 2 months after that he called me back and said that my prayer has been answered and that I should continue to say "Thank you, Jesus... thank you, Jesus... thank you, Jesus..." all the time which I did.
2 weeks later I received my second transplant which was very difficult to find. My doctor said I had a 1 in 3.5 million chance of getting that transplant. Today in 2021, 15 years after that 2nd lung transplant, I am still waxing strong and living life to the glory of God and contrary to medical opinion.
Thank you, Jesus! Thank you, Jesus! and thank you to Rev. David Okumgba for all your prayers.
