Margaret was preparing to go for work, as she usually did every morning. She grabbed the nearly empty bottle of Aboniki Balm she kept by her pillow and sniffed it, breathing in the strong aroma. This had been her daily ritual for the past four years.
Switching on the television, she tuned into Emmanuel TV and began to watch as someone began sharing their experience of an addiction to sniffing kerosene. By Divine arrangement, it was her day to be set free from the strange addiction that had plagued her life for so many years!
“Emmanuel! My name is Margaret Otobo and I want to testify to the goodness of God in my life through praying with Emmanuel TV. For the past four years, I have been addicted to sniffing Aboniki Balm.I literally had to carry it everywhere I go to. At work, I always kept a bottle in my office. The worst is that while I was sleeping at any time of the day, I would always keep a bottle by my pillow. Something would wake me up to sniff before I could sleep properly – or else I would become restless and couldn’t sleep. In my place of work, some of my colleagues call the Aboniki I sniff ‘my cocaine’ because if I don’t sniff it, everything around me would irritate me and I would get easily angry with the people close to me.
“I never understood that this problem was spiritual. It was only when I began to watch Emmanuel TV and saw other similar cases that my eyes began to open and I began to seek God’s help. So, on 3rd September 2012 in the morning, I was getting ready for work and listening to Emmanuel TV. I watched a lady who had been delivered from sniffing kerosene and drinking it. Prophet T.B Joshua asked if there was anybody with Anointing Water and a man came out.
“At that point, I said with faith, ‘I will receive my deliverance today!’ I placed my hand on the television screen because I knew distance is not a barrier and I prayed along as he sprayed the Anointing Water on the woman, saying, ‘Receive your healing and be delivered!’ I was charged and my hand left the screen; I could not control myself and I screamed the name, “Jesus!!!” I fell on my bed suddenly, no longer in control of my body. It was an amazing experience!
“Since that Divine encounter, that spirit that used to wake me up to sniff the balm completely stopped. I now sleep normally and have no urge or desire whatsoever for it. After the deliverance, I even tried to sniff it in my nostril and it was unbearable! It went into my stomach and I felt as if I had tasted poison. I thank God and I know He has healed me from all my infirmities and set me free from this addiction. Thank You, Jesus Christ!”
