Thank you Heavenly Father and Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PHD, my life coach and spiritual father for this opportunity to share my salvation testimony. Pastor, Sir I love you very much, you are truly the inspiration for my spiritual growth.
My name is Brother Alex Tjihero from Christ Embassy Windhoek North, Namibia, in Southern Africa. I went to a catholic missionary school for my primary and high school education.
Although I took everything seriously that we were taught at that time, I cannot say with certainty how the teachings impacted my life. Already at a young age of 12 years, I started to compare the teachings with other local churches but noticed that they were all practicing a mere religious routine.
In as much as I obeyed all that we were taught and compelled to do, I did not experience any transformation in my life. After completing my high school education at that school and while I was waiting for an opportunity to continue with my post-high school academic studies, I continued to attend various churches on an ad-hoc basis.
It was until a little more than ten years ago, when I was offered an opportunity of a Post-Graduate Academic Study & Professional Enhancement Program in the US, when I started to visit churches which were teaching Christianity. Although I did not make enough effort to attend regularly, I started to notice a paradigm shift from the way I used to look at my life to a hunger for the Word of God that started to well up within me.
Upon my return home from the US, I started to visit a number of churches for several years and decided in the end to spend much longer time with two specific churches. One day while visiting a Pastor from one the churches, he decided that we should pray together but I did not have the understanding of what we were praying for.
It was until one day, when I overheard him telling one his church members that I was now one of them (Born Again). That is when he explain to me that the prayer he prayed was for my salvation.
I did still not have the understanding nor did I experience any transformation in my life because I continued to live the same life I was used to. About four years ago, someone from Christ Embassy invited me to go worship with them.
I gladly accepted the invitation and I started to visit Christ Embassy very often thereafter and started to read the ROR, other ministry materials and listened to Pastor Chris CD’s and DVD’s. I started to pay special attention to how people receive salvation and became highly interested in getting to know more about salvation.
The more I attended the church services and watch Pastor Chris on TV everyday, the more I started to examine myself whether I was really born again or not. I decided to attend church regularly and to pay more special attention to Pastor Chris’s teachings to understand what it means to receive Christ and to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
It continued like that until I found myself one day in front of the TV, after Pastor Chris preaching a very powerful message, being let to Christ by Pastor Chris, receiving the Holy Spirit and starting to speak in tongues just there. Thereafter , I started to attend only Christ Embassy church services and never missed a service ever since.
I became even more excited as I attended the Word Alive with Pastor Ose in Windhoek, Namibia and the 2008 Night of Bliss with Pastor Chris in Johannesburg, RSA, witnessing all those outstanding miracles, and my life has never been the same again. I started to experience the guidance of the Word of God in my life as the Spirit of God enlightens my heart and cause me to walk in deeper realities of the Kingdom.
I started to have an in-depth understanding of what it means to be a doer of the Word and not a hearer only. I made it a habit to speak the Word in consent with my Heavenly Father (meditate) and see it producing great results in my life.
I certainly discovered that there is something to should about, which is this gospel that has changed my thinking, my talking, my behavior, etc. , and can therefore not keep quite.
I will therefore always perform God’s number one job, for which reason Christians were left on earth, and which is the scriptural sign and evidence of the infilling of the Holy Ghost – Soul winning – Dynamic Evangelism. This is the evidence of the real infilling of the Holy Ghost, Jesus said in Acts 1:8 “But ye shall receive power….
