An Armed Robbery Experience I Had Moments After A Holy Ghost Church Service

It happened moments after i just returned from a church program, sometime in late 2003. It was most likely carried out by cultists, since it took place in a university campus hostel.

There were six of us (all guys) inside the room. Four of us, choir members, yet in high spirits having just returned from a Holy Ghost power-packed, Spirit-filled service on campus at about 10pm.

We were still trying to absorb everything that had transpired during the powerful service, while also getting set for bed, when out of nowhere, there came in the three guys with gun(s) and machete(s) into the room and one of them switched off the light, while using touch light to be flashing light on our faces carrying out the robbery.

But it was a strange kind of robbery, because after they were through, they had robbed every one inside the room, except me.

And it wasn't as though it was a mistake or that they had forgotten to do so or were in a hurry, it seemed deliberate, because after asking everyone of us to lie down, they had stood us up one by one to rob us, from the first person to the fifth person.

But when it got to my turn, being the sixth and final person, after the guy came to me, and flashed the touch on my face, since it was dark, instead of telling me to stand up and go to show him my things as he had done to the other five persons before me, he just stood up and started walking sheepishly back to where his guys were to my amazement. It was as though he had seen something strange or an angel.

Moreover while yet lying down, i overheard him being asked by one of his guys, who I suppose was their leader, "what of that guy"? His response though was not loud, so I couldn't hear what he said was his reason for doing that, but it seemed to suffice to his fellow guys, as it wasn't long afterwards they left the room.

Probably even more puzzling, was the fact that my black traveling bag, was just about the first thing anyone else would spot in the place the robbers had taken most of the things from, such as, cash, a mobile phone, a perfume jar, a pair of shoes etc., which was the wardrobe.

And inside the side pocket of that bag which was the foremost and most exposed part of that bag, there was some considerable amount of cash. Therefore had they just stumbled on it and decided to open it just one of the times they went there with one of the other five persons to show them their stuff, they would have also robbed me of some cash, because that was the closest money or thing in the wardrobe for them to have made away with.

But for some reason they left all the cash intact and no single thing in my bag was missing, while the other things more difficult to access in that wardrobe were being made away with, apart from my other things without my bag there which they also didn't touch.

So this was not just about me not being stood up by them, because they could have also easily robbed me even without needing me to do that.

As I said earlier, four of us there of the six were all choir members of the same church, and we had just returned from a church service together. And while three of us were guests who came from other parts of the country for the annual church program held within the campus premises, the other one was a student of that school who happened to be our host.

But despite that, when the robbery took place, I was the only one of the four who was separated and treated differently from the rest by the armed robbers.

It was really shocking to say the least, but it wasn't completely surprising to me because it was obvious to me why that was.

Despite that we were all Christians, and some active church members, as those my fellow choir members, i was the only one among them that was really saved and truly of God among them, so that was what was separated me from the rest when it mattered.

God bless.

What happened that day reminded me of what Jesus said would take place on the day of rapture.

Jesus said:

Luke 17:34-36 (KJV)

I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.


It gives the impression that many people who have close ties, people of the same family, married couples, close friends who walk and do things together, also members of the same church, would be together on the same day, but would suffer different fates, as one of them would be taken, and the other left behind.

Now as I said, four of us, all choir members, had just returned from a power-packed Holy Ghost-filled church service in high spirits, but although this wasn't the rapture but just an armed robbery incident, still i was separated and treated differently from the rest because I was the only one true child of God among them.

So just imagine that it was the rapture, that's how I would be the only one "taken" while the three fellow choir members would be "left" behind despite that we just came back together from a power-packed, Holy Ghost church service.

It was supposed to be an eye-opener for them, but unfortunately, instead of learning from it, going to God to enquire concerning what happened, one of the choir members started bragging about how he was going to report the robbery incident to the pastor of the church, because he would not take it lightly since it involves him, that the pastor doesn't joke with him. And i just shook my head.

After that one of the other two guys who was also a student of the school, talked about doing the same thing and reporting the incident to his pastor, and it became clear to me why many Christians would be left behind on the last day.

It's because they put their hopes and trust in men - their pastors and church leaders - but not in God or His Son Jesus Christ.

That's why they do not obey what Jesus commanded us to do, but have continued to work iniquity, thinking that their pastors and church leaders would be able to save them regardless.

But what they don't know is that many of those their pastors and church leaders who they put their hopes may not even be able to make it themselves on that day, if the sayings of Jesus was anything to go by, so how much more those who put their hopes on them and refused to repent?

Matthew 7:22-23 (KJV)

Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.


What happened that day was truly an eye opener to me. It showed me that it was not about being known and backed by pastors and church leaders, Christians, regardless of who they were, but about being known and backed by God, because that was what I had proved to be the difference between me and them that night.

I pray you'd not just have the backing of men, but also that of God on the day it matters most.

God bless.

Lol!

But they used the back of matchet to hit me on my buttocks though before leaving as the others, so they didn't leave me completely without a reminder.

That said, I was just a guest, all the way from the middle belt to somewhere in the East, and it was my first time ever in that State.

In a sane country, investigation is supposed to start from you. The robbers know you very well. They might even be as close as your brother or something of that nature. This is not a miracle, if it were, God would have saved you and your friends. The robbers know you were coming from church, they also know the exact time you will be returning. Smh

It's not impossible though that they may know me but i think it's highly unlikely.

There was another cultist who was in custody of my stolen property, but when he saw me, he said God told him not to play with me, so this may not be any different.

Some people will attack you for this post but I believe you sir. His presence differentiates us. I truly believe this.

One terrible supervisor that everybody fears in my place of work sent for me for a perceived mistake. He was shouting and people thought I was finished. By the time I entered the room where they were, a change occurred. It seemed like they poured iced water on him. Instead of shouting he calmly and gently told me to be more careful next time. Even me I am still surprised and I had to specially thank God.

Let them attack as much as they want, it wouldn't change the fact that this was an act of God.

I have come to learn from experience that if someone truly serves God, that God would for a certain prove Himself to be Faithful in the person's life.

Good to know that you're also true. Please don't stop regardless of the storms, distractions or opposition you may face. There's nothing that compares with someone having the backing of God.

So why didn't grace find the others?

Why didn't it find the others in the days of Noah?

I pity you with this your Antichrist gospel of grace you're carrying about which has led many Christians to hell. I hope you've not continued to sin thinking that grace would cover you as those church goers may also have thought.

If so, repent before it's too late, because if you continue in your sins, there's nothing like grace that would cover you on that day.

Don't not be deceived by what happened in your school if you're not truly saved. Mine is not an aberration but a norm. I would still share several other similar true stories here so endeavour to stay tuned.

What of if those stuffs were very useful to them, so God decided that they should be robbed just for fun sake ..... Haba!!!

An Armed Robbery Experience I Had Moments After A Holy Ghost Church Service

It happened moments after i just returned from a church program, sometime in late 2003. It was most likely carried out by cultists, since it took place in a university campus hostel.

There were six of us (all guys) inside the room. Four of us, choir members, yet in high spirits having just returned from a Holy Ghost power-packed, Spirit-filled service on campus at about 10pm.

We were still trying to absorb everything that had transpired during the powerful service, while also getting set for bed, when out of nowhere, there came in the three guys with gun(s) and machete(s) into the room and one of them switched off the light, while using touch light to be flashing light on our faces carrying out the robbery.

But it was a strange kind of robbery, because after they were through, they had robbed every one inside the room, except me.

And it wasn't as though it was a mistake or that they had forgotten to do so or were in a hurry, it seemed deliberate, because after asking everyone of us to lie down, they had stood us up one by one to rob us, from the first person to the fifth person.

But when it got to my turn, being the sixth and final person, after the guy came to me, and flashed the touch on my face, since it was dark, instead of telling me to stand up and go to show him my things as he had done to the other five persons before me, he just stood up and started walking sheepishly back to where his guys were to my amazement. It was as though he had seen something strange or an angel.

Moreover while yet lying down, i overheard him being asked by one of his guys, who I suppose was their leader, "what of that guy"? His response though was not loud, so I couldn't hear what he said was his reason for doing that, but it seemed to suffice to his fellow guys, as it wasn't long afterwards they left the room.

Probably even more puzzling, was the fact that my black traveling bag, was just about the first thing anyone else would spot in the place the robbers had taken most of the things from, such as, cash, a mobile phone, a perfume jar, a pair of shoes etc., which was the wardrobe.

And inside the side pocket of that bag which was the foremost and most exposed part of that bag, there was some considerable amount of cash. Therefore had they just stumbled on it and decided to open it just one of the times they went there with one of the other five persons to show them their stuff, they would have also robbed me of some cash, because that was the closest money or thing in the wardrobe for them to have made away with.

But for some reason they left all the cash intact and no single thing in my bag was missing, while the other things more difficult to access in that wardrobe were being made away with, apart from my other things without my bag there which they also didn't touch.

So this was not just about me not being stood up by them, because they could have also easily robbed me even without needing me to do that.

As I said earlier, four of us there of the six were all choir members of the same church, and we had just returned from a church service together. And while three of us were guests who came from other parts of the country for the annual church program held within the campus premises, the other one was a student of that school who happened to be our host.

But despite that, when the robbery took place, I was the only one of the four who was separated and treated differently from the rest by the armed robbers.

It was really shocking to say the least, but it wasn't completely surprising to me because it was obvious to me why that was.

Despite that we were all Christians, and some active church members, as those my fellow choir members, i was the only one among them that was really saved and truly of God among them, so that was what was separated me from the rest when it mattered.

God bless.
