MY RIGHTEOUSNESS BY BRO. PEKENE TIMEX NUGALANUMO, CHRIST EMBASSY PORT HARCOURT.
The purpose of my existence is now clearer to me, I was a growing kid who had a strong desire to become distinctive in the society. What I took seriously was working for my Dad's political party.
Convincing my peer to support each of our candidates was my greatest fulfillment. I did this with the greatest passion that was driving me in trying to do something that will count.
This I did with the purest of hearts without any bargain for compensation. Now it was very obvious that things have gone tougher than I was equipped to go.
I guess I let things go that way with no attachment not because I couldn’t adapt on how to start trading that way of the hooligans but may be because of the little peaceful life my mum has demonstrated all these years that has a rub off on me, unknowing to me it was instilling in me a judgment to let roughness go. And I started looking for a more peaceful way to get to my formal destination of the pursuit of being relevant among all men.
Not too long my immediate elder brother (Ebieri George Pekene) start telling me about miracles. I am sure before then, I hadn't heard the word "miracle" He told me about a particular pastor that he loves so much.
The passion in which he said that reminded me that a friend had said this same thing about this same man of God. his words were "There's this pastor that if when preaching can conduct healing if the sick may place their hands on the screen of the television set".
And here I am this Saturday being told by my elder brother to come let's go worship with his friend in that man's Church the next day. And for the very first time in life, I attended a church that was interested in my life and righteousness.
Things went on this way and I got born again somewhere in 2003 in Christ Embassy Ikwere Road 1 in port Harcourt, The actual date of my being born again is unknown to me because of the upheaval of my spiritual development. Though, I am hoping that in one of these days the holy spirit will remind me of the date and how it happened.
I found out something new, as time went on my passion for Christ started growing as I was been exposed to the word of God through Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. I was into rap and worldly music, I did lots of songs and albums in the university.
I was yet a born-again but not mature in the things of God. My ignorance was "those who sing in the church and those who sing in the club are all the same kind of humans".
Yet each time I raise my hands to pray or worship God, a still voice will say “how would you be making music for the club and say you love Jesus”. Now for the very first time, this tiny spiritual line is becoming clearer to me but yet the sacrifice was too high for me to pay, I mean letting the popularity and the desire to go.
Over time I had recorded several albums that were ready to hit the air wave’s one after the other. So the battle now was, how can I condemn all these beautiful songs? How can I disappoint my producer who dropped out of school for the hope that these albums will someday bring money and fame.
We were in high-spirited expectations of how big we would be after the album hit the streets. As time goes on God was still preparing me for the sacrifices, but yet I was still asking myself “how can I make it to the hall of fame if I let these songs that the Spirit of God tells me to let go.
H said they are not edifying, let them go! How I can make up for my vested effort and time was my ponder”. All these thoughts for years were rioting on my inside unknowing to anyone closest to me.
To cut the story short, I am now in the hall of fame in Zion. I am causing heaven to rejoice on daily basis.
What could be compared to soul winning? Now God is counting on me. THE THINGS I NOW HAVE Things are not the way they use to be.
Do you know that I now have the spirit of wisdom and an increase in accuracy, and the favor of God. people fall in love with me on first site and strive to stay favoring me.
I now Have the spirit of attracting gifts, anything that I identify that I needed just come to me at a free course. I don’t know how I manage to pay my bills but I know is God that is at work.
I am now bolder with the very spirit of love and power and of sound mind not that of ego and pride. I am now loveable by all mentions, though I face more persecutions.
When I was growing up, Parents use to admonish their children to stay off me that I was a bad influence. Now those same parents beg me to come visit.
I am attracted to great information and most times it helps me to pay-less and get to where am going faster and free. Today being the 13th day of July 2011, I just cast the spirit of death out of a sister that was tormenting her to take her own life.
Telling her that she is not worthy of living… This is my testimony of righteousness. - PEKENE TIMEX NUGALANUMO.
