PAY ATTENTION TO THIS VIDEO!
The year was 1990 - 2 years after I had been married to my precious beloved wife without a child. We had eagerly looked forward to each month, but each month had come with its own disappointment. In April of 1990, we celebrated our Church convention. I was working then in the ministry as the Church secretary and a member of the worship team with my wife. At the end of the Convention after Pastor Mathew had ministered powerfully, he was called upon to do a final blessing for the people. It was during this time that he prophetically pronounced conception & fruitfulness among other Prophecies. He declared that "...those that have been trusting God for the blessing of the womb; by this time next year you shall come back with your baby" I must admit that we had forgotten the prophecy after my wife conceived and had our first child 9 month 3 days after precisely. The bible say how would you know a prophet is of God? Jeremiah 28:9 says, "The prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the LORD hath truly sent him."
About 17 years ago, I was watching this same video and bang! It hit me. when I did my math from 29th of April 1990 to the 2nd of February 1991 (The date Joshua was given birth to) it was only then we realised that God had spoken through Pastor Mathew Ashimolwo for my family. I took a copy of the video and my son who was 4 then and went to his office (which was at Danley Road in Hackney) to share with him what God used him for in my family.
Be mindful when God's true prophetic words are pronounced to quickly embrace and make it personal if it applies to you.
This video is not to praise a man, but to thank God for using a man to be His true mouthpiece. And equally thankful for Pastor Mathew allowing himself to be used of God.
May we not be absent on the day God is releasing His blessings!
