The first indication that "Village People" had gotten involved in his case were the persistent dreams he had immediately after buying his ticket to travel home for the Christmas holidays
He had spent four years in Spain
He left his home country for Spain hoping to find greener
pastures and he did
Even though he went to Spain as a student,he met a lady in his class who had a good head for business
The lady approached him all by herself saying she had been carrying out some studies and had discovered that she could make a healthy profit by exporting cars
to his country
The lady wanted top know if he had anybody in Africa he trusted who could clear and sell the cars and return her investment to her with a tidy profit
He told the lady he was traveling home
They had been in class together for some time and she had seen how honest he
He had found some money in the bathroom of the club where he worked as a barman/cleaner and returned the money to the amazement of all the students
He had proven himself to be an honest man
The lady was overjoyed to hear that he could handle the shipping, clearing and sale of
the vehicles on his behalf
They proceeded to buy the vehicles and ship them with her life savings
Two weeks after the cargo left Spain, he was to traveled home to see his family and take care of the business
The moment he bought the ticket, an ominous feeling came all over him
was like a premonition of woe
This was followed by a series of strange dreams
He called his wife at home and shared the experiences with her
His wife started fasting and praying
Rebuking and dismantling the schemes of the enemy
Two weeks before he left Spain, a prophetess met his
wife on the road and told her she saw danger in the nearest future in a matter relating to her husband
THe prophetess told his wife to fast for 21 days until he go home safely
He got on a plane and arrived in his country safely
One his way to Ibadan from Lagos, the vehicle they
took from the airport suddenly veered off the road and somersaulted six times
They had no vehicles before or behind them
The driver was not speeding
None of them could explain the strange wind that carried the car
Somehow they got to Ibadan in one piece
As soon as they got home
Before he even took a seat to see the faces of his children who had been waiting eagerly to hug him, his father arrived at their flat
Because of the "Village people" palaver, they deliberately didn't inform anybody that he would be coming home
How his father knew he had returned
home was a mystery to them
His father waited until some of their neighbours and friends left the house
His father called him aside and said "We have to go to Lagos immediately, you offended someone in Lagos before you traveled. This woman had sworn that you will not live to see
the end of this year"
His father described the lady
She was a woman whose daughter he met in Spain
The daughter was into some shady businesses which he didn't know anything about
One day he got home from school and found a strange bag in his house, he didn't bother checking the
content before calling the police
He was living alone and he didn't give his key to anybody
He didn't want to end up in jail
The police took the bag away and their investigation led them to the lady's daughter
The bag was full of prescription pills
The lady was deported two weeks
Since then he had been getting calls from all sorts of strangers raining curses and abuses on him and promising him that he wouldn't prosper
He didn't know they traced his relatives and were issuing threats
He explained what happened to his father
His father asked him what
they could do to appease the woman
He told his father he was not going to appease anybody because he didn't offend anybody
His father told him life was not that simple
He told his father he didn't have enough to appease anybody
The job he did in Spain was only to keep body and
soul together
(He didn't mention the cars and the business because it wasn't his and he wouldn't want to give his father the wrong impression)
His father returned to the village that day
He kept a low profile
The cars arrived at the port and he sold some of them in order to raise
the capital to clear the others
In all, he was able to clear twenty out of thirty cars
He got buyers for sixteen of the cars and raised the Spanish lady's capital and profit
He sent it to her immediately
He kept the other cars as his own profit
On Christmas day, he bought a ram,
dressed his children in fine clothes and drove his family to his village to celebrate with his family
It was a surprise celebration
Apart from his immediate parents, his return had been kept at a hush because his parents were afraid of the lady making threats in Lagos and didn't
want the news of his return to incite the lady in any way
The Christmas party was an opportunity for him to see his younger siblings and their families
The party was a success
They spent Christmas day and boxing day in the village
They set out for Ibadan very early on the morning
of December 27th
When they got to Ojoo, a commercial bus came out of nowhere and hit his car
It became a scuffle
A police officer arrived at the scene and insisted both drivers must follow him to the police station
When they got to the police station, one of the police officers
took a look at him and swore he was an escaped convict the police had been searching for at Ado Ekiti
He presented his documents to prove otherwise but the officer insisted and instructed that he had to be remanded in custody
It was a case of mistaken Identity
Everybody said it
was not a big deal
By the time his wife got to the police station the next day, he had been transferred to a bigger police station and the case had been placed on the table of the commissioner of police
All the police officers his wife spoke with started demanding for money
was absurd
His wife refused to give them anything because she knew they just wanted to take advantage of her desperation
Three days later, the police arrived at their house with a search warrant
They saw the cars and said it was proof that he was an armed robber
She had assumed
it was a simple case but after three weeks of back and forth, she went to the village to inform his people
His father followed her back to Ibadan
They met some other influential people
They wanted to know what can be done to get him out of the mess
People listened and told them
all sorts of stories
Many made promises
Somebody told the wife it was a spiritual attack
She went to see the prophetess that told her about the dnager ahead before he left Spain
The prophetess did some things for them but they didn't work
His father also went for consultations
it was a wild goose chase
Village people had prevailed
His destiny had been truncated
Somebody said it was an arrow from the village because he went to kill a ram and announce that he was rich
Another person said it was from the lady in Lagos
Nobody could proffer the solution
He had cried and lamented in jail for almost two months when they brought in a pastor
The pastor was accused of embezzlement by his church members and arrested by the police at the insistence of the head of the Men's group of the church who was a very influential man
The pastor
was unperturbed by the accusation or situation
He started talking to the inmates one by one and praying with them
He was extremely confident and joyful in a strange way
When the pastor got to him, he told the pastor everything
The pastor told him he was suffering because he does
not belong to the Lord
They joined their hands and prayed
The pastor led him to Christ
He became born again in the jail
He also got filled with the Holy Ghost
He prayed with the pastor all night, crying profusely as the tension eased out of his system and joy took him over
next day, by 2pm, the DPO arrived with his case file
They had arrested the real criminal in a hotel at Alakia overnight
The DPO remembered the name immediately and drove to the office of the commissioner himself that morning to retrieve the untreated file
By 2pm, he was out of
the jail
He didn't spend a kobo for bail
The police DPO apologized and the officer that arrested him was strongly reprimanded in his presence
He went home full of joy

PS: This event happened in Ibadan, Oyo State
You can read this testimony and claim "Village people" are at work
If you do so you will be right but notice that they could only manipulate the destiny of this man when he was also an unbeliever like them
The moment he became a believer, his reality and circumstances changed
If village people are attacking you as a believer, you must examine
your faith
It is very likely you have strayed from the light and darkness can began to lay claims over you
But if you are in Christ, led by the Holy Spirit, darkness cannot make a demand of you because you belong to realm that is far above principalities and powers

He met her on his first day on the job
His employer had insisted that all the staff members must undergo two weeks training before resumption
It was a new Television station
The training started on a Monday morning
She walked into the hall at about midday
She was wearing a skirt
so short that all the men in the room practically paused whatever they were doing at her entrance
He was the only one seating on a desk close to the rear exit
She promptly walked up to him and sat right next to him
The skirt was a distraction
As much as he tried to keep his face
on the marker board
He found his eyes darting to the long spotless legs over and over again
She noticed his dilemma and decided to help out by removing her handbag from the desk and placing it right over her thigh
After she did that, his eyes settled down
They got talking because

Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for giving me such a beautiful, extraordinary, exciting, fulfilling, exceptional and excellent life; a glorious life that radiates joy, excellence, and peace. I thank You for renewing my mind through your Word and enlightening my spirit to see
and walk in my glorious future. I refuse to be held back by yesterday’s experiences, for my path is as a shining light, shining brighter and brighter, for Your glory. Irrespective of contrary circumstances, I stir up joy from within; Your glory, grace, and righteousness are seen
and manifested in me. Eternal life is my present-hour possession in Christ. I have that unfading, incorruptible, indestructible, imperishable life, resident in my spirit. I’ve been brought from humanity to eternity; therefore, I have dominion over death, sickness, disease,

Let me share this testimony to attest to the fact that The Holy Spirit moves us to do his bidding if we yield ourselves to Him.
This brother saw a car he liked in Lagos, he took a picture of the car and started praying on February 12, 2021 that God will bless him with that car
On March 24, 2021 I was at the CSR wash at RCCG camp when someone drove this car in for washing. My spirit immediately cleaved to the car. I just couldn’t take my eyes off it. So I approached the seller and we got talking. Then I called the brother and said “can I give you a
Video call, I want to show you something.
The brother said “Okay”
I switched to video and showed him the car. I asked him if he liked it. He said Yes. So I bought the car immediately.
The brother and I are still shocked at how precise the Holy Spirit always is. Trust in Him!

1 Cor 8: 1Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that “We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love builds up. 2Those who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to know. 3But whoever loves God is known by God.
4So then, about eating food sacrificed to IDOLS: We know that “An IDOL is nothing at all in the world” and that “There is no God but one.” 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth (as indeed there are many “gods” and many “lords”), 6 yet for us there
is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.

7But not everyone possesses this knowledge. Some people are still so accustomed to idols that when they eat

A Christian brother travelled to the UK, he disembarked from the plane to discover his international passport with 5 years visa had been stolen or missing. He complained to the officials, they tried everything they could for him. The document was not found. He was returned to
People started shouting “Village people”. About six pastors and even the ones he knew in the UK before traveling to Nigeria all saw the hand of the enemy. This brother started moving from one pastor to the other seeking a solution to the “village people” after him. His
younger sister brought him to one of our programmes
He told me everything
I asked him if he was a born again Christian
He said yes
What do you do in the UK
He said he was a barber and he had a thriving practice
Where do you live?
He mentioned the location, he said he was sharing
