On November 11, 2011 something significant happened in my life. I still remember it like it was yesterday.
For those who are interested, I’m more than willing to share, but it sent me down the darkest path in my life. A path that I traveled alone. A path that I traveled in agony, with no light to guide me. Or so I thought.
It took 8 years for me to get off of that path.
On November 10, 2019 I was baptized in Israel at the Jordan River. I felt a strong presence of the Holy Spirit and was led to go on a 40 day fast that began on November 11, 2019.
My initial thought were, “How am I going to sustain myself for these 40 Days?”. But I made up my mind that I wanted to show YHWH that I love him more than anything. To make myself a living sacrifice and display my love for Him in the form of self-denial and sacrifice.
I didn’t want to just say with my words to YHWH that I love Him, but with my actions. That I love Him more than I do my family, my friends, my fraternity, food, fornication, football, Facebook and every other thing that could take me away from His Love.
He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
– Matthew 10-:37
You see, it’s not easy to do this at all, and these are the word of The Christ telling us to carry our Cross DAILY. To love Him more than any and everything, but we fall short of this on a daily basis without even knowning.
So I wanted to fast.
I spent 40 days denying myself of the very thing my body couldn’t function without. Then slowly all of the other things started fading away. My love of social media, sports, gratification, work. Work. Without knowing it, I was addicted to work, a workaholic. Impatience. Procrastination.
So I wanted to fast.
And when I say I was delivered from EVERYTHING…I mean everything. I started to see a transformation that was evidenced by what unbelievers said to me. They said that I was still. That there was an aura around me. The way I spoke commanded calmness.
Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
– Luke 17:21
What believers said to me solidified this. That they felt a fresh fire. A new annoiting. A higher calling. A sound mind. A prophetic ulterance.
I began to see prophecies I spoke manifest. Deeper revelations while conscious and unconscious. Laying hands and healing. Praying in a way that shook the heavens. Because I starved myself of all my flesh, until only the Kingdom of God within me was left.
Then on the last three (3) days of my fast, I didn’t eat any food or drink any water. Three days DRY. While working and fulfilling all of my other worldly duties. I didn’t think I would make it. I was physically weak.
The second day I was on the brink of tears, ready to drink water to quench my thirst. To ease the pain. Justifying my giving up by saying God wouldn’t want me to go to the hospital as a result of this Fast. But He kept telling me that His grace was sufficient. And it WAS.
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me
– 2 Corinthians 12:9
I completed my Fast. 40 Days and 3 Dry. And the testimony of this post is the announcing of my ministry. To reach as many people through this platform as possible.
Because I know how much your life can be better. How much peace you are yet to have. How much success that is waiting for you. You don’t have to do what I did – but I challenge you to make a sacrifice before the end of the year.
I am a living sacrifice at the Altar of The Most High God. I gave myself a way. To help all those who were or are in such a darkness as I was. To see what I didn’t see – that the Shekhinah Light was in us the whole time.
Praises due to The Most High God, the Ruler of the Universe, Lover of My Soul, the Light, the Way and the Truth.
The rest of my days will be dedicated to enlarging His Kingdom so we can all enjoy the fruits: Love, Joy, Peace, Forbearance, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control.
The Most High God LOVES you, and I’m here to reveal to you that Love.
