Let The Lord Prove Himself

Let The Lord Prove Himself.

Some years ago I was eating at a fast food restaurant in Lagos, Nigeria. A lady recognised me, came over and asked me to speak to her ‘fiance’ who was with her. She was about to get married to him and wanted to know what I thought about him.

I sat with the guy at his table and spoke with him about different things; his job, the church he attended, business, etc. As I was speaking to him about those things, I was listening to what the Lord had to tell me about him. When I was done talking with him, I told the lady: “this man doesn’t want to marry you.”
Lady: “how do you know? Did he tell you he didn’t want to marry me?”
Me: “No, he didn’t.”
Lady: “Then how do you know that he doesn’t want to marry me?”
Me: “The Holy Spirit revealed it to me.”

The woman told the guy what I said and they both started persecutting me, sending me hateful and angry texts, calling me a false prophet, that they were going to get married and I was a liar. The guy even threatened to beat me up.

My prophetic gift put me in trouble. I knew what I heard and I was 100% certain about it. I didn’t tell her what I heard to take money from her or manipulate her to gain some favour from her. I just told her what I received clearly from the Holy Spirit and it brought me so much pain. While this woman and her fiance were saying very horrible things about me, I was silent. I knew I would be vindicated.

Brethren, about 3 months later, this woman discovered that the guy she called her ‘fiance’ was married and had a 14 year old daughter. In fact, he was still living with his wife. The woman was shattered emotionally. She wept for months. This was what the Lord revealed to me when I spoke with her at the restaurant and told her: “he doesn’t want to marry you.” The Lord wanted to protect her but she wouldn’t listen.

That man was a liar and had been deceiving that woman, taking advantage of her. I told her the truth but she was too far gone emotionally to listen to me. She wanted to believe the lies and rejected the truth.

Don’t fight over a word or a revelation you received from the Lord. If it is indeed the Lord who spoke to you, the Lord will prove himself to you.

    Thanks for sharing this. But how do we know if God is indeed speaking?
    I am in a similar situation and do not want to waste time with this lady.
