Twenty-two year old Gabriel Fain was in the prayer line when Prophet T.B. Joshua told him, during one of the previous Sunday services at The SCOAN, that he could have been in prison. Gabriel did not hesitate to confirm the prophetic message. Born in the US and brought up in a strict home, Gabriel constantly slipped out of the hands of his police officer mother and a mentoring pastor to become a drug addict. While attending a theology school, Gabriel stumbled upon drugs, tried it, got used to it and married it for a very long time in his youthful years. He would sneak away from home, the church and the theology school to satisfy his “undying” love for drugs of various types. Not only did his continued use of hard drugs compromise his mental faculty, speech and physical well-being but it also rendered him homeless. Apart from deriving joy in getting high after taking the drugs, Gabriel recalled that he always passed out on the smallest quantity he took. On several occasions, whenever he visited the restroom and took drugs, he would pass out and was always found half-naked. There was a time when the police cautioned a disoriented Gabriel for exposing himself in public. If he sat in his car and did drugs or smoked, he would pass out and wake up to find the car seats left in cigarette burnt holes.
In the midst of the myriad drug problems, Gabriel knew he was on the verge of killing himself by the day. Alarmed by the rate at which Gabriel’s health was deteriorating, the mentoring pastor sent off Gabriel to return to his mother. The pastor gave him an Anointing Sticker and a plane ticket to go back home. With his mobility ability leaving him, Gabriel had to be wheeled at the airport. Upon arrival, his mother did not recognise him; Gabriel had to wave to attract her attention.
At home, he started watching Emmanuel TV on the internet. During one of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s prayers that engaged the viewers, Gabriel touched the screen and prayed with Prophet T.B. Joshua and all of a sudden, his speech returned to him. He started to sound intelligible from that point on. His relationship with God started to improve after his deliverance through Emmanuel TV. He decided to come to The SCOAN and received a word of prophecy from Prophet T.B. Joshua, who told him to disconnect from three past friends who had a toxic relationship with him. Gabriel has since disconnected from his bad past.
Since his deliverance, he does not have the desire for drugs anymore. He knows that it is by the grace of God that he has been delivered. He advised the youth and all others to quit drugs and run to Jesus because, “The devil is out there to steal your soul”.
