He nudged my spirit.
I fell inlove with Jewel in my first year in the University. We met through a friend who accommodated me on my admission. He was a dark and handsome guy, I think his cheerful and jovial nature drew my heart to him. He was a Christian but I don’t call him a born again.
He proposed relationship to me and being my only friend and the only person I had in my new school I accepted his hands of friendship and we started dating like a year after. Mind you, I didn’t pray to know God’s will.
Our relationship was very interesting and full of fun. He was a very brilliant guy. He studied Law while I studied Political Science. We didn’t joke with our studies at all, we played and studied together. We were always celebrating our success after each semester. It was fun and it appeared as if we were made to be together for life.
Sincerely, we loved and cared for each other. Within few Months of our relationship; we met our families and we sealed the relationship beyond the school environment.
I already gave my life to Christ and having established a relationship with Christ before going into the University, I made a commitment to God to keep my body till marriage and my boyfriend met me a virgin.
I told my boyfriend while we were romancing and kissing that I am a virgin and I wouldn’t do anything until marriage. After much talk he agreed to wait.
I was always proud of him because all my friends were involved in fornication.
We dated for years while in the University. Our families gave their consent to our relationship and my greatest hope was to graduate and marry him.
We dated for 7 years and no direct sex. I was feeling good thinking I was a virgin since we didn’t have sexual intercourse. I evaluated all the worth of all our romances…kissing, caressing and the likes and I reasoned like no…all these things make up sex too. In fact we did oral sex a number of times but because I wasn’t feeling comfortable with it we had to stop.
I couldn’t stop the foreplay/romances because it was the only thing to do to keep our relationship going on. On several occasions, my boyfriend threatened to quit but with so much pleadings he would draw me into this arms again. Romance continued.
I was a very committed Christian before I went to school but my fellowship was cold following my ungodly relationship. The relationship drained me spiritually. I started struggling with my walk with God. The communion was dry. To make the matter worse I had to drag my boyfriend along to my spiritual pedestal…I would try to spiritualize our relationship by organizing prayers together, going to my church and study Bible together yet God wasn’t there.
Hmmm final year! the story changed in my final year in school. He started threatening me that he would quit if i refuse to have sex with him. I was confused and torn in between pleasing my boyfriend and God. All my friends were angry with me for holding on to my virginity for too long.
To cut the long story short, one day I became tired of keeping my virginity…I wanted to be a woman. I felt I had tried enough staying a virgin till my final year in school.
I went to my boyfriend’s house and I asked him to have sex with me. I told him that I was ready for fornication. He didn’t take me serious at all having disturbed me for years but by the time I hugged him he saw the light.
We were right on the bed doing our usual…romancing and kissing… suddenly I heard the Holy Spirit said to my ears “YOU WILL REGRET THIS”
I jumped out of the bed immediately . My boyfriend was shocked and disappointed. I politely explained to my boyfriend exactly what the Lord said to my spirit.
He got so angry. but i didn’t bulge.
I can’t thank God enough for the Holy Spirit who called me out of my 5 minutes madness,
The devil already knew a major encounter was on my way. Barely 2 Months after this escape from the altar of fornication I was in a church program when the Holy Spirit encountered my life afresh; I was baptized in the Holy ghost and given the gift of prophecy.
What a beautiful date 27th February 2009.
What a joy that flooded my heart following this encounter. It was so beautiful!
My fire was re-ignited, my love and zeal for Christ was refreshed.
I called my boyfriend and narrated my ordeal to him. In short I told him that I couldn’t continue the ungodly relationship or better still we should continue the relationship without romancing and kissing.
The short form of the story was that he quit.
I couldn’t trade my relationship with Christ for anything.
Why am I sharing this with you today?
The one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning. The Son of God appeared for this purpose, to destroy the works of the devil.
No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 1 John 3:8-9
The knowledge of this Scripture is powerful.
1. The one who sin is of the devil
2. The one who is of God does not sin
If you are of God you will not sin. How?
The ”seed” of God is in you.
The seed of God is the HOLY SPIRIT. The Holy Spirit will speak to you, warn you and guide you per time. If you keep obeying His voice YOU WILL NOT SIN.
How is your spiritual life now?
Can you evaluate your relationship now as being holy or ungodly?
Is your courtship pure?
How is your fire for God today?
Are you in school?
Did God lead you into that relationship?
What values has your so called boyfriend/girlfriend added to your life?
How has your relationship contribute to your walk with God?
Have you mingled with ungodly friends?
How has school life influenced you?
Is there anything you are doing contrary to the will of God and the Holy Spirit is warning you constantly beseeching you and crying “YOU WILL REGRET THIS” beloved heed His constant warnings and “YOU WON’T REGRET”
Live your life in a way that you can look back someday and say “THANK GOD FOR MY LIFE”
Toppy was a very beautiful lady, robust and very cheerful. She fell inlove with Darlene too in her first year in the same University. She was seriously in love and soon forgot about academics.
Toppy and her boyfriend were living together like a husband and wife. (Cohabitation)
Toppy started well but the moment she mingled her academics with dating problems stepped in. She lost concentration and focus on her academic goals.
She started skipping lectures, study time was replaced with fun time in their room. She was giving her boyfriend all the benefits of a husband: she would cook,clean the house, wash clothes, fornicate, spends her money and do all the needful for him.
Did she ever get pregnant for this guy? I guessed so! Having seen her diluting some combinations together for a drink.
They dated for years and all her hope was to settle down with the guy after graduation which would be like 5-7years to the time their relationship started
Hmmm Toppy was away from school for like 6 Months (she went for IT) and their love story changed. Her boyfriend re-united with his ex-girlfriend, they fornicated and few Months later the lady returned to declare her pregnancy.
This guy apologised and promised Toppy that he would have the custody of his baby after birth but he would never accept to marry his ex-girlfriend
We all advised her to let go of the relationship but she was hurt and hopeful hence the romance continued till the ex-girlfriend took her baby’s father by force
Toppy, focus on your studies! You will regret this…she wouldn’t listen
Countless carry overs on your palm…she kept hoping her boyfriend would help her out to bribe some lecturers,
Go to the school and sort out your academic issues….she wouldn’t listen
Toppy failed woefully at the end of her program in school. While most people were celebrating their success she was crying and biting her finger.
She lost her relationship and moved back home with no certificate to show the fruit of her single mother’s struggle.
