TEXT: : Acts 9:32-35
32 And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all quarters, he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda.
33 And there he found a certain man named Aeneas, which had kept his bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy.
34 And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately.
35 And all that dwelt at Lydda and Saron saw him, and turned to the Lord.
Key verse: Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.
My Deliverance: In the month of April, before Easter, 2020, I came to a shop in Romi and a man was listening to Pastor Rika's message on MP3. When I heard the message, I was captivated. I drew closer to the man and asked him, “Sir, can I join you and listen to this message?” He replied “Yes, you can come and join me.” When I sat down with him, the message continued to the end. The man of God then began to pray and he said, “Whatever is troubling your life; sickness or afflictions, receive your healing in Jesus name.” At these words of the man of God, I discovered that something left my body with great force. Suddenly, I began to vomit profusely. At the end of the vomit, I regained my memory and right senses which I had lost at childhood. Joy came into my heart and I became cheerful.
Outcome of Chapter Leader's Investigation of Testimony: Romi is a unit under Television Chapter, the location where Bro. Marcus Magaji resides and where he also had the encounter. On the 10th of June, 2020, when Marcus came to the HOREMOW office, incidentally the Chapter Leader of Television Chapter, Pastor Baba Bawa Jagaba, had also come in shortly after Marcus left. The bookshop clerk narrated the testimony to the Chapter Leader and suggested that he should investigate the testimony for confirmation so that it could be forwarded to the State Coordinator. He did his investigation along with the Unit leader, Pastor Stephen Bannah, and reported as follows:
From the Testifier‘s Aunty: My name is Mrs. Rose Jerry, aunty to Marcus Magaji. I want to confirm that Marcus, My Nephew, was raised up in insanity. Our relations in the village rejected him because of his condition. When he came to live with me here in the city, some people advised that I should send him away also, but I felt that that will be inhuman and unchristian, so I accommodated him. Often time, people would drive Marcus away from their presence with stones because of his appearance. Nevertheless, in recent times I have seen him acting well and behaved normally. This appears to suggest that he has regained his sanity..
Thought for the day: Cast your burden upon the Lord. He will give peace and rest to your soul.
Song for the day: He has done for me….what my parents could not do…
Bible reading for the day: Psalm 25-27; Acts 20:17-38
