Singer, Obiwon, testifies of how God rescued him from a sickness that almost claimed his life

On this day a year ago I entered what was the most trying season of my life. It was a matter of life and death. What seemed to be fever with stomach pain dovetailed into a complicated matter with my abdomen. After an initial misdiagnosis, while my situation got worse, I was by a divine stroke of mercy evacuated at the nick of time as an emergency case to another hospital

On the journey to the other hospital, I could feel myself slipping. I was so weak I couldn’t talk. My stomach was bloated. I didn’t mind leaving bearing in mind the pain I had been through for about a week by then, but at that point, God reminded me of my wife and children who would bear the brunt if I gave up easily.

I was stabilised at the new place and a gastroenterologist attended to my matter. However, all along this was a deep spiritual battle. I had previously been shown the battle in dreams. I shared with my egbon prayer partner Tmac as well as my pastor @nathanielblow who prayerfully supported me throughout. I received so much quality medical care at the new place that I believed the battle was already over… but that was as far as human knowledge and wisdom could go. There was a fight that needed to be won in the spirit.

After the surgical procedure to evacuate the “appendiceal mass” discovered in my stomach, I was supposed to heal and stabilize but it wasn’t so. One particular night ordinary paracetamol injection caused my heart to start palpitating. The doctor in charge asked if I had a history of heart problems, I didn’t. I was frustrated. I asked to be left alone. I wanted to live but my body wasn’t healing. We had prayed and prayed and received victory but I was getting worse. As I pondered what the Lord was doing and if it was my time, I heard Him whisper clearly “Spirit of Life”. I repeated in my mind that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Life. Then I hear another one: “If the Spirit which raised Jesus from the dead be in you, how much more will He quicken your mortal body”

Prior to this, I had never personally thought of Romans 8:11 as healing scripture. It was later I connected the exact chapter and the verse what I heard was coming from. I was stirred in my spirit. I began to declare boldly that I have the Holy Spirit, He is inside of me, the same One that raised Jesus from the dead, therefore He will quicken my body to heal as I stir Him up. With my last energies, I began to sing, shout and pray aloud in tongues in that hospital. This was happening at about 1 am or 2 am. The nurses heard me, the patients heard me but at that point, I didn’t care. I was greatly stirred. It was like I had received a great light. By the time I was done my heart palpitations stopped. At dawn one of my doctor friends came to confess to me that everyone on duty that night thought I wasn’t going to make it in the morning. She too was marvelled of how I looked strikingly better from the previous day she had seen me. From then on my health improved. In a few days, I started eating and then discharged. After my discharge I still a few minor battles here and there but I knew the major victory had been won. God cleared all and gave me a clean bill of health
