Prophet T.B. Joshua often uses the phrase, “Distance is not a barrier for the Holy Spirit.” The testimony below echoes this extraordinary truth. Read and be encouraged to know that no condition is permanent!
Emmanuel! I had been smoking and drinking beer and alcohol for 36 of my 52 years on earth. The addiction was so severe that I smoked between one to two packets of cigarettes every day, especially when I was drinking. I had tried to stop many times on my own; I even confided in my pastor to pray for me but all to no avail. This addiction really affected me financially. I was not able to have any savings because I was smoking one of the most expensive cigarettes in the market. I also didn’t have time for my wife and family because my evenings were consumed with going out with friends to smoke and drink until the early hours. I sometimes attended church but this problem did not enable me to concentrate in my prayer life.
My miracle happened on the day I sent my wife to The SCOAN. That Sunday evening, I went out with friends to smoke and drink as usual. My wife had called me just before I left that she was in The SCOAN praying at that very moment. As my friend lit up a cigarette, it produced an offensive odour. I felt like choking and began to cough. When they brought the drinks, the moment I tasted it, it became so sour and vulgar. I told my friends that with the way I was reacting to the odour of cigarettes and the taste of alcohol, I was not going to drink and smoke again. That was it! To God be the glory, it has been over a year now I have not tasted alcohol or smoked even a stick of cigarettes. Since then, my life has changed tremendously! I can now concentrate when listening to the Word of God and my Spiritual life has equally changed. For the first time in my life, I have been able to save up money and I am spending more time with my family. Since then, I have also been praying with the Man of God Prophet TB Joshua through Emmanuel TV!
