Vision told by Evangelist Peter Otieno
Written By Justus Ondieki
The Lord gave me a vision last year 2007 in November 4th. In my vision I got my self in a market place where witches were displaying and selling their power and charms. Here I was walking and looking around I asked myself what am I doing here? Fear started to mount in my heart as I was looking around and seeing great magicians with their magic actions but the Lord said unto me, "do not fear, for something in you is powerful than all this".So I walked there in confidence.
In the vision a friend of mine called me through phone but the powers of this magic market was so strong that even no net-connection was working .So, I started to go to his home and here I got my self at my parents home.
At home I got one of those witches from the market place standing at a tree outside opposite our door and here she was witching everyone that got in and out of the house. I asked my self, "is this not one of those witches at the market!!, what is she doing here? I asked angrily
Something said to me, "this is your job to take her away for I raised you up and strengthened to build a wall of protection around your family and to those that i will sent you to, by the blood of the lamb you have to chase her away".
I was immediately moved with anger against this witch as much as I have hated witches and those who practice such since I was young. I started to rebuke her and she was responding by steering her charms against me. My anger mounted and I picked a stone to crash her as I was calling fire from heaven to consume her. But before my stone could get out of my hands, she was consumed by fire.
Immediately, I got up from my vision and was so tired and confused and found myself praying in spirit. I asked what was the meaning of all this but I got no answer, no revelations for some days. I asked my self, how can there be a witch at our home after we have done a lot of family prayers and deliverance that no evil could stand?I stayed for along time without an answer to my questions and the vision continued to disturb me.
It was after this vision that Satan tried to kill me seven times. First through acute malaria for one week, second, through accidents at black spots which I survived without any injury. Miraculously my motorbike was also spared and again with ulcers, which the doctor diagnosed me, that it was serious. All these four occurred in the same month of November in each week of the month. Finally, I met real death during tribal clashes, which broke out after elections in our country where by I was caught with gangs in my room which were looking and killing people of my tribe. I escaped this narrowly and miraculously, death that no one could believe,glory to God.
I have been used to preach this message to the members that nothing can stop you to reach on to your vision that the Lord has given you. This is how powerful a vision is. For we all live to reach our visions on earth. No demon, death or tribulation and of such that will stop you to reach your vision. But you are useless and better dead if you live without a vision (Proverbs 29:18).
Vision is what keeps you living to reach it.
It is also something that you see a far.
God has shown you, but at the moment you don't have it.
It was during all this that a pastor whom we are serving with in the same ministry said to me that he dreamt that I was being killed and he woke up and started to pray for me.
After the last death trial from the enemy (Satan) when I was deeply troubled and had no peace in heart in this city where I have ministered for many days of my life in ministry. I stayed in a refugee camp and in turn was taken with my friend to his home where I spent about one month and I could not settle in my mind yet. So I started a journey to go towards the end of my country in my community home.
Finally, I got there with my motorbike only as what I had rescued from where I was with nothing here. No money, no clothes, no means to start a new life here. I thought I was staying here for a little while then I go back after things have settled. But guess what, there was the destiny of my vision. I realized that sometimes God uses trouble to complete his purpose.
Here I was and I started to realize that in few days that God was calling me speedily and urgently to minister in this village where for decades they have not heard the gospel of Jesus Christ. All around this community there is no church of the Holy Spirit. I realized that only cults and culture religion are here people are used in here traditional believes and witches and magicians have dominated the place they are feared so much here.
Evil spirits have also dominated the place and people are really suffering without seeing a way out. They have become almost used to, people here are used to worship in the spirit of their forefathers who are dead.
I felt so angry with this situation in my community and got a burden of praying and fasting for this situation. Little did I know that slowly God was calling me to minister his word in this community. God was calling me with an opposite call of Abraham, to come out of a far country, city, and town and to settle in my own peoples land and home.
Immediately, I got there, the Lord started to provide for my life. What I thought was going to be struggle here was softly moving with God following with signs and wonders. I got favor with people here who have chased away God's servants and had rejected any message to heal them. I afforded to be so humble enough that they saw me as no harm to them. For Paul said if I go to Rome I become like them so that I win them to Christ.
I met my extended family here and they too had suffered the problems here. I gave them the word and those who accepted were delivered and I made sure I baptized them immediately to completely disconnect them from the world. Together with anyone who believed. Miracles also took place and people are now so happy waiting a church for them.
The Lord called me here through the vision I stated. I realized all this slowly as I learned everything in my vision took place here. Market place here was dominated with witchcraft. People do their businesses with charms and lands and homes are fenced with charms. Still no solution for this people for even though they have surrounded their lives with charms they are really suffering.
With this call in my heart I have struggled with Jesus for whether it is me to do it and how. I have no money, no machinery to do it but with all my excuses I have nothing to do but to serve and help this people spiritually they look at me with expectation to put up a spiritual church and start mission in this place but I have no help.
With signs and wonders which have accompanied me here let me give a testimony which I believe will touch and help somebody who reads my testimonies here.
Immediately I got to this place as I was running from my trouble city I got my auntie's home in this village. She had also suffered much of evil spirit and jinns that threatened to destroy her life in marriage.
She had suffered a great deal on many witch doctors, prayer specialists and spiritisim men in the village and far of, yet, instead her solution grew more and more worse. She had got to a situation where if she prays the evil spirit warns her to stop or will meet them. Her maid was chased away with the jinns not to work there again.
With four children and her husband she has been helpless for 12 years of her marriage with things getting worse every day. She had been taken to different help claimers by her friends, sister and even mother-in-law to heal the situation but it has gotten worse and worse.
She finally sat down and had tried to live even step out of marriage for many times but has never succeeded, she gets visions and dreams at night which tells her that she was her husbands wall and if she lives, he will die. So she hard also heard that things will one day get better. But when she asked always staring at her situation which nothing could change except God who sent me to be far away from her.
Things seemed to be worse as she stared at her husband who has been drunk for 12 years of their marriage and has never come back to house before midnight . Her husband never wanted to see or hear anything about God or God's servants. He even bought a sword to chase them away.
Immediately she saw me she was like her day had come. I knew little about this story but never new that the evil spirits had got to a point of doing sex with her at night and another female one with her husband. Their children saw black people at night and could not sleep. They had changed homes but still no solution. It was too heavy for her to take more.
She saw me this morning and remembered her dream that a servant of God was coming to stay and pray in her house. So she saw me and said it was me. Isaiah 46:11 says from a far off land I will send a man to do my purpose. Not that the Lord will send us to his servant but his servant to us. So lets stop going around the world looking for God, he is where we are Isaiah 46:2-5.
She was a member of my family and the Lord had shown me in my vision. She had really suffered. She looked at me and realized I had no way for living there so she decided to make up for my living and gave me Kshs.22,000 To start my living here and I started a small business. God provided for my life here.
I started leading her for deliverance process and telling everything that the Lord said to me for cleansing. When she gave the money I told her to speak to it on what she wanted from the Lord I told her this was a seed and she had to speak to it of the kind of fruit she wanted the seed to produce.
Here the deliverance started and we went in praying and fasting for 3 days each week. We started by taking of all the charms in the house and in their shop that they own as the Lord commanded for I said to her and she also had got that dream before.
Every process was to be done secretary as the Lord commanded and him who sees secretly rewards openly. No one even neighbors or husband was to know anything for they had been obstacles before. Only me and my auntie. And the Lord gave me favor before her husband who had sworn that he doesn't want to see any man of God or his wives relatives. It was the first miracle before my auntie.
To take the charms of the Lord instructed me to replace with same type of small containers with anointing if inside to stop suspicion from the husband but he is delivered for he had spent a lot of money to put them their. So he did not have to suspect something missing there immediately we removed this charms, dreams in the house stopped, the evil spirits were not there and auntie was free to pray.
For the long story to be short, they have been delivered from all this now for three weeks. Her husband has stopped miraculously to drink, he stays at home and I baptized the family in many waters in a nearby river 3 weeks ago this has happened after a month of deliverance process which I led them through. This is a miracle which has touched many who know the family and God's church is ready their. I just pray for God to provide finances and a way for this to happen soon. I believe these are first members for a church there.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
