The is the true testimony of a Pastor Michael whom we met a number of years ago and which today, the LORD called me to share here.
Pastor Michael briefly introduced himself to us, saying only that he came originally from South Africa where he ran a good sized Church.
One day, while he was alone in prayer, Pastor Michael heard a voice speak to him, clearly and audibly, “Pastor Michael ! Close your Church and go to Hong Kong!”
Being that Pastor Michael had never ever thought of going to Hong Kong — he didn’t even know where the place was — and as closing his Church was an anathema to him — Pastor Michael immediately set to work and entered into serious warfare prayer against the enemy. He fought hard, and soon calm prevailed again.
However, soon the peace and calm of Pastor Michael ‘s prayer was once again broken by the same audible voice again saying clearly, “Pastor Michael ! Close your Church and go to Hong Kong!”
Once again Pastor Michael entered into warfare prayer mode and redoubled his efforts and soon, yet again, peace and calm returned.
Then again once more, just as soon as Pastor Michael had recovered his composure, that same voice called out to him, loudly and clearly, “Pastor Michael ! Close your Church and go to Hong Kong!”
This time, Pastor Michael recognised the voice. After gathering himself together and clearing his mind, Pastor Michael quietly spoke to the LORD, asking in his confusion, “LORD, why do you want me to close your Church?”
The voice of The LORD calmly replied, “Pastor Michael, you are not listening to me. I did not tell you to close My Church and go to Hong Kong. I told you to close YOUR Church and go to Hong Kong.”
Recounting the conversation, Pastor Michael quietly looked at us in the eye and simply said, “Within one week of that Word, I was in Hong Kong.”
A Word to chew and meditate on…….
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it,” Revelation 2:17.
