My name is Bro Biodun Ibrahim Banjo. This is my story “Would it be correct to say I used to be a Muslim” No, I don’t think that’s correct because that young man that used to be a Muslim died with Christ on the cross of Calvary then I rose up with him.
I had always envied a friend of mine Bankole Oni because I saw the change in his life after he gave his life to Christ. We used to be very close, doing all sort together, then one day he came back from a Sunday service and wouldn’t play pranks like we all used to do.
I watched him grow from one level of glory to another. After several months of wishing I could have answers to all the questions in my heart concerning life, then came this serious pain on the lower right side of my abdomen.
The pain kept coming and I became very afraid. The devil kept telling me I was going to die.
Bankole had tried to preach the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to me and I’ve always said I don’t want to hear any of these rubbish “Are you saying all Muslim will go to hell” I used to tell him. I remember on one occasion I sent him out of my house.
The pain around the lower right side of my abdomen continued. One day it was so bad then I told myself if I’m going to die, I’ll rather die a Christian remembering all the things Bankole told me about making Heaven.
The opportunity to give my heart to Christ came on one glorious morning, my elder sister who had become a Christian invited me to a Sunday service and I went with her determined to get answers, Whao! Were my questions answered? YES, YES & YES. I discovered I could become a Christian and not die of the pain.
The preacher made a call after the sermon and I found myself right in front of him. After that day I had great peace in my heart but the pains still came occasionally, then I discovered the scripture that said “if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away behold all things are become new”.
I took this scripture and kept declaring “this is a brand new me, I don‘t have pains again” I also found the scripture that said “that same spirit that raised up Christ from the dead is in me and it will vitalize my mortal body” so I keyed into it and kept declaring it. The PAINS disappeared.
It’s been 17 long years and it’s been from one level of glory to another. Praise God.
