By His Spirit

By His Spirit

Dear PSSBC team, 

Thank you very much for the opportunity 
to share these few testimonies

I live and work in Australia.

I got born again at the age of 12 years and 
got baptised in the Holy Spirit around my 
13th birthday. 

The Lord gave me the opportunity to serve 
in various capacities while in the Secondary 
School, University and when I began to 
work in various churches

I know that during prayer sessions in church 
services and fellowships, we would pray 
and speak in tongues. 

But it's NEVER been a routine for me that 
I would spend specific times of the day 
to pray in tongues. 

In 2010, while living and working in the UK, 
I went through ' a storm' that stripped me 
of everything a young man with a young 
family would want in life between 2010 
and 2015. But despite ALL of the events 
of the storm, THE PRESENCE of the Holy 
Spirit was there with me and 

1) He covered me up when everything was 
stripped away and my life was left naked 
with nowhere and no one else to turn to. 

2) He would send people to me at cross 
roads to either encourage me or provide 

3) He would position specific people at 
specific junctions of my life as divine 
and destiny helpers -

4) He raised specific people to teach me 
specific things during and after the storm - 

5) He also raised specific people to pray 
with me particularly towards the end of 
the storm itself. 

The Holy Spirit has been very patient 
with me and has been drawing me closer 
to himself even while the storm lasted. 
Although my preoccupation then was 
for my prayers to be answered and for 
the storm to be over.

 But I did not discern that the Holy Spirit 
was drawing closer to himself to a life of 
intimacy with Him and a life of prayer.

On 26th May 2020, Dr Funto and I were 
chatting and she was sharing her 
experiences with the Holy Spirit with me. 
I was both challenged and motivated to 
do the same. 

I recently shared some of these testimonies 
with Dr Funto and she encouraged me to 
share them here

(A) As I listened to the testimony of the 
lady at the end of the online service 
yesterday on the 25th January 2020

 I can say that the Holy Spirit has transformed 
my life in very many ways 

1) my prayer life and my quiet time

I started to spend time praying in tongues 
the very day we had the conversation in 
May 2020 and I told the Holy Spirit, 
I desired to spend a particular time every 
evening to pray in tongues and my 
motives for this desire.

It was initially a bit hard but progressively, 
the Holy Spirit changed my tongues and 
in October 2020 it was like breaking 
through a dam, I remember that day 
very well and the Holy Spirit transformed 
my prayer life completely 

2) Physical transformation - 

The more I spent time praying in tongues, 
I would be drawn to messages - particularly 
from Apostle Joshua Selman, about the 
Holy Spirit, Intimacy and many others.

As I began to pray for transformation, the 
Holy Spirit began to transform my life and 
change my mindset. 

And much more......

3) My appetite

i) I started drinking coffee in 2008, when 
I was preparing for my licensing exam 
- PLAB in the UK. I never touched coffee 
back in Medical school. 
During my postgraduate days in Scotland
 it was so bad I could go three or four 
cups a day sometimes.

June 13 2020, I had just finished spending 
time praying in tongues and that night, I 
just knew - coffee goodbye. So I emptied 
ALL the jar of coffee through my sink and 
that was it. 

ii) I have always loved current affairs and 
there are three conservative shows on 
fox news that run back to back on weekdays 
that I love to listen to - a 3 hour news show 
Monday to Friday. At work I will open my 
youtube to still listen to the show. 

And since Nov 2020, the more time I have 
spent praying in the Spirit, the less desire 
that I have to actually sit down three hours 
daily following those new shows. 

iii) During my days in the UK, I would go 
on the BBC app or website regularly for 
updates, news to be conversant with 
current and political affairs. 
It used to be the VOA - voice of America 
when I was in University and CNN.

Today, I have seen my appetite for current 
and political affairs totally changed and 

4) Burdens - there are burdens I have 
borne following some experiences and 
things I witnessed in my childhood and 
one in my early teens in high school . 
That my parents are NOT even aware of. 
The more time I have spent praying in 
the Spirit, the Holy Spirit took care of 
all of those burdens and lifted them off 
me completely. 

My Spirit, soul and body all feel very 
light because the burdens are lifted off me.

(B) I was listening to Dr Lolade's testimonies 
about her patient, and  the Holy Spirit had 
done this for me just the day before. 

A few weeks ago, I saw a mum with her 
three daughters - rashes on their feet and 
the rashes were mirror images for two of 
the girls and one slightly different. 
I had NO idea what I was dealing with here. 

But the logical thing for me then was to 
treat the three girls for soft tissue infection 
with antibiotics after taking history and 
examination. Which was what I did.

But Leptospirosis came in my Spirit and 
I said it out during consultation and I had a 
quick check on it online and requested a 
blood test for the three girls including 
bloods for leptospirosis

Earlier this week or so, I saw two of the 
results which were negative and on 
Friday 5th Feb 21, I got a third result - 

Exactly what the Holy Spirit said it is, 
I was stunned with the result myself, 
because I can't remember much about it . 
I only requested for the test, just as the 
Holy Spirit said. 

(C) During second day of tongue and
 word fest, sister Gbemisola gave a 
testimony similar to what the Holy 
Spirit did in my life on 29th January 2021

One of the many things I have learnt from 
a number of teachings from Dr Funto is - 
she would hand everything she would 
say to the Holy Spirit.

I cannot say that I have always done 
this prior now. But for a few months, 
I decided to specifically ask for the help 
of the Holy Spirit with my consultations 
at work and on my way to and from work 
and when I am going shopping.

I have cleared the front passenger seat 
leaving it clean and tidy - For the Holy 
Spirit, so I would ask for His presence 
as I go to work daily.

This I have done for a few months now.  

Today, 29.01.21 as I was getting out for 
work, I asked the Holy Spirit for his 
presence with me.

 And on my way to work - the Lord saved 
me from an accident that would have had 
very far reaching consequences for the 
motorcyclist and even for myself if I had 
hit him..  

A motorcyclist just ahead of me suddenly 
stopped, while we were trying to merge 
from a two lane road to a single lane. 
Because the car ahead of the motorcyclist 
suddenly slowed down and the motorcyclist 
did the same while we were all trying to 
merge on the single lane road!

 My car stopped just at the point of impact 
with the motorcyclist  

The presence of the Holy Spirit with me in 
my car averted a Catastrophe on the road. 

I return all glory to God for His wonderful 
mercies and loving kindness for saving me 
from killing or badly injuring a man. 

(D) Structure - 

Dr Funto took a teaching in October last 
year and she started - using the work 

I have always been a man of structure, 
everything about me has structure and I 
do not like people breeching my structure 
at all. 

From the moment I started to spend time 
praying in the Spirit, I have seen the gentle 
hand of the Holy Spirit create a lot of 
flexibility around my life for other things . 
A gentle demolishing of the rigid structures, 
without me having to worry,

 I am thankful to the Holy Spirit for being 
very mindful of me and for His amazing 
work in my life. 
I am NOT there yet, I am still growing 
to be what He wants me to be and do 
what the Lord wants me to do.

Thank you very much for the opportunity 
to share my testimonies.
