One fateful weekend in January, whilst on the public bus with other passengers, Miss Monica Paul was hit on the forehead by a man with a charm and instantly became unconscious. Miss Monica recalled the moment a beautiful day turned into a nightmare. When she woke up, she discovered that she was in a gloomy and sully place, that could be described as a shrine, where she saw two men. One of the men was an old man who surprisingly called her name and surname. The old man instructed her and the other man to remove their clothes and carry a black pot. Reflexively, she did as she was instructed and made an oath, swearing never to tell any soul of what had taken place in the shrine. She lost consciousness again and when she regained consciousness, she found herself on the road and went back home. Being under the umbrella of fear and anxiety, Miss Monica couldn’t tell anyone what had happened and her life became haunted by the dreadful experience.
As the weeks followed, Miss Monica received a phone call and a voice resembling the voice of the elderly man did some incantations, causing her to lose consciousness and start acting like a zombie. The elderly man instructed her to go to a hotel and meet a particular man who would have intercourse with her. Subserviently, she went to the hotel and had sex with this ‘strange’ man. The next day, the man called her on the phone and instructed her to get some money and come to the hotel; she obediently collected some money and went to the hotel to sleep with him. This predicament continued in her life, making her insolvent as she had used all her money in her savings; she had to start begging family and friends for money to give to the ‘strange’ man.
One fateful day, Miss Monica decided to watch Emmanuel TV with her elder brother who was an avid Emmanuel TV viewer. She joined the mass prayer and touched the screen of her television when Prophet T.B. Joshua was praying. She recounted that the next day, when she received a phone call from the strange man again, a boldness came upon her and she questioned him and even refused to go to the hotel. That instant confrontation with the strange man gave her hope and she decided to come to The SCOAN.
She visited The SCOAN and Prophet T.B Joshua prophesied, saying, “There is a woman here, the devil speaks to you…. You receive phone calls and then, meet with a man who sleeps with you.” Weighing the gravity of her life, Miss Monica came out to identify herself as the lady whom the Prophet was talking to and received deliverance in the name of Jesus Christ. Miss Monica recounted that during her ordeal in bondage, she could not sleep or eat freely because she was in constant fear; everything around her alarmed her. She lived like a prey who was relentlessly watched by its predator, fearing that each day was its last of survival. After her deliverance, freedom was born. Now, she sleeps freely and moves freely; the thoughts and fear of dying are no longer there. Most importantly, she no longer receives any strange phone calls.
In advising viewers all over the world, Miss Monica stated that no matter the bondage we are in, we should find boldness to run to God’s presence because He is ready to free us because He loves us and wants the best for us in our lives.
