Deuteronomy 8:18: But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth.
Brother Ferdinand Okorie who Joined The Lord’s Chosen in the year 2008 is here to appreciate the Lord for all the He has done in his life. He started his testimony by narrating to the congregation how he once lived as a tenant in 40 rooms apartment (Face-me-i-face-you) with only one toilet and bathroom. They had to wake as early as 5:am to line up in order to use the bathroom before going to wherever for the day. A certain day the line was too much that he had to wash just his hands and feet to go to church service.
At the church service that day he presented the matter to God that God should provide a better accommodation for him as he is tired of the suffering he’s going through in that yard. He said after the service, opportunity was given to sow seed in support of the work of God. He sowed a seed of fifteen thousand Naira (N15, 000). After sowing that seed, God blessed him with one and half plot of land.
On one of the Thursday counseling and Deliverance service, the state pastor told all to present their prayer requests unto God assuring that God is able to do all things. He drew a picture of two bedroom flat and lifted it up to God saying “Father, this is what I want”. After the prayer that day, doors of financial favor started opening and within the next year he was able to build 2 bedroom flat and packed in with his family.
He established a house care fellowship in his house and when the brethren became much he splitted the house care. The Lord used him to establish a Chosen branch in his location (Mechanic village) and when the demolition of mechanic village by the past government of Imo State affected the church, he erected a structure in his compound and the church was moved there. The God Almighty who seeth the heart of every man, who said in His word that ‘He that watereth shall be watered’ blessed him with Lexus 330 jeep last year. The blessings did not end there, as he speaks now he is building a 3 storey building and work is still ongoing. Only God Can Do This.
Secondly he is appreciating the Lord for the successful ceremony burial of his mother. According to him she died outside the country during the lock down period of Covid19. All effort to bring the corpse back to Nigeria proved abortive but after the prayers of the brethren and pastors around him, God intervened and the corpse was brought back to Nigeria and the burial ceremony was done successfully.
**Friends, I don’t know the problem that you have been passing through over the years and it seems like you will never be able to make it again in life, we want you to rejoice because the Lord has decided to come down again on your behalf to change your situation. Be our guest on the 4th and 5th (Saturday and Sunday being tomorrow and the next) at Community Secondary school Ikenazizi boys Obowo LGA Imo State in a 2 days Holy Ghost inspired programme “IT IS TIME TO LAUGH”… The Time is 8 am daily. As you come, the Lord will intervene and roll away every reproach in your life and you will surely laugh again in Jesus name.
Praise the Lord!!
