THE TESTIMONY: FOLLOWING GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS BY IYKE ORIAKU

THE TESTIMONY: FOLLOWING GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS BY IYKE ORIAKU

THIS IS WHAT GOD TOLD ME SOME YEARS AGO THAT MADE ME LOSE THE GIRL I WANTED TO MARRY!

I was afraid to tell anybody that it was God that told me …
I finished writing a quality book, and even borrowed money to publish it… And one morning, after praying, God told me to take the books to wherever I will see teenagers and youths, and to give out the book to them, FREE of charge…

It was not easy… I doubted it…

I quoted scriptures, to convince myself that it was not God that I heard…

But I know when I hear myself and when I hear God…

Even though I was struggling with that instruction… But there was a lot of peace beneath…..
The wonderful lady I was into a marital relationship with then did not understand why God can tell anybody to enter into debt, …

When I told her… Out of her innocence and hood heart, she said:
“I am not against sowing… Me, too, I sow… But how can God know that you even borrowed money to finish the printing of this book and he will tell you to give it out free? Is his Word not against borrowing?”

I did not blame her at all… I even had more questions to ask? …

I did not have a house… I was squatting with people, here and there…

How will she tell her parents that the man that wants to marry her doesn’t have a house where he is living in?
And how was she sure that tomorrow this Iyke Oriaku will not wake up and say that God has told him to sow every thing in the house as seed? … (Lol)
That was her fear… And I didn’t have to blame a good girl that wanted to bring back home a guy who can take care of her…

She was not asking for too much… But that was the beginning of the end of that relationship …

The book was blessing lives across the globe… Men, women, boys and girls were calling, and I was reconciling them to Christ…
I led more than 1000 people to Christ on the phone… I use to pray for more than 200 people on the phone daily… Till today, more calls are still coming…

I have lost count of many cultists that denounced cultism after reading it…

Some prostitutes moved out from brothels and were reconciled with God after reading the book…

In some churches and schools, testimonies were coming, how God was using the book in causing revivals…
Sometimes, parents will call me from far and near, blessing me, with tears, for giving them the book which their children read and began to follow God..
Friends, but when the book finished, I did not have any money to reproduce… People were calling for more copies… The demand was so much that it became a ‘disgrace’ that I could not reproduce such a book…
Many people said I was foolish and that I did not hear from God very well… Others said it was zeal without knowledge…

Many people who saw me in motor parks, or one or two offices, trying to sell few copies, so that I could raise transportation money to take the books to many schools, in far places…
They saw me when the book finished and were telling themselves, but to my hearing: THESE GUY MUST HAVE BEEN OUT OF HIS MIND…
With the demand of that book, I should have bought many cars and landed properties from the proceeds if I had sold it… And I had offers from secondary schools and higher institutions… But I was afraid to disobey God… I gave them out, free..
I did not buy even one slippers from the book…. And I had lost many friends who did not understand why God should tell me such a thing… I could not be bold enough to sleep in their houses again… Because I did not want to become a pest…
I started sleeping inside the uncompleted security houses of the church I was attending then… Nobody knew, except the security man…

Financial, I had nothing… Emotionally, I was heartbroken…
WHY should God tell me what will cost me my love?

Hunger and loneliness and fear of the unknown gripped me… Yet, more calls were coming… Of how God were using the book…

I was happy for the testimonies…. But I was homeless and foodless and ‘hopeless’…

One night, God, after praying, God appeared inside that uncompleted building where I was lying down….

I had never seen such appearance before then… The brightness covered everywhere… He told me:
“I have seen your tears… And from now, I have blessed your writing ministry… My Spirit will rest in everything you will write from this day …”

“Men and women will read what you will write and I will visit them with my Fire … Your writing ministry will bring revival to homes, churches and nations of the world… ”

I was in tears… I was crying… I could not lift my face… In tears, I was asking Him: “Oh God, why me? Why me? Why me? ” And He said to me:
“Remember the time you were praying day and night in camp of Faith, Okigwe, asking me to show you the price you will pay to carry the end time Fire…You said you were ready… This is the price I wanted you to pay … ”

Friends, from that day till now, everything changed….

He did not give me physical cash… But He gave me what money cannot buy…

Please, sir, we are not writing anything on Facebook because we want to have more likes or more comments or more shares on our posts… NEVER!
There are guys who are Facebook on a mission…

Before the world began, Heaven knew that there will be something like Facebook… And it is obvious that you and I are among the people God has set apart to use through this platform…

And we see it as a big privilege…

By the grace of God, all that God told me that night is playing out now…

People wonder why our write ups are too long…
But It’s just because there are many people on some countries of the world now, where what we write here are being translated into their languages , and they use them weekly, for their Sunday schools etc…

In about 18 nations of the world now, which many are missionary places, to His glory, our Facebook write ups are being used as their weekly and some monthly magazine publications…

And hundreds and thousands of people are being touched and revived…

We have not been to these places physically …

But, God through what we write have gone there…. And He is glorifying Himself…

Maybe you are on Facebook to be showing your rivals that you are more handsome or beautiful..

Or to show them that you preach in big churches…

There are people who are here to use this Facebook as a part of the end time platform to spread the revival Fire…

I am talking to people like me who still want to carry the end time Fire….
There is a price to pay…

You have been too comfortable since you entered ministry…

You have not lost anything, intentionally, for God’s sake, since you became a born again…

How then can there be a seal of distinction in your life or ministry?

Tell God to show you the Price to pay for you to carry His Fire in our time…

Unless you are not tired of sitting at ease in Zion…

Unless you have made peace with mediocrity…

Who is that man promising you glory without responsibility?

Who is telling you that people don’t pay for greatness?

Brother, the honour you are looking for must cost you something…

Majesty has a price…

Fire doesn’t fall on any heart that has not lost anything…

I know that we have not seen anything yet… Nothing has even begun.. .

Oh yes… But We are aware that something has begun….

And it is not going to end here on Facebook…

But it can start from here…

You don’t plan revival…

You don’t organize how it will come or where it will start…

It did not start in the synagogue…

It started in the Upper Room…

And that Fire has not stopped till now…

This revival we are crying for might not start from your local church…

Don’t expect that it must start in our big yearly conventions…

God can use any platform where He sees men and women who are hungry for His move…
Who knows, if He can see few ‘broken’ and ‘dead’ men on this plarform, a spiritual awakening might break out from here that might be talked about till Jesus comes…

Already, we have made up our minds to lose anyone or anything that might make us lose God in a time like this …

Whatever price you need from us, Lord, we are ready… Please, give us grace!

Friend, in case you are interested, then, join us this coming month of September, let us pray!
