The moderator then told both of them:
“Are you really ready? Because I am now going to grant you time to tell us how serious your position is and how strong the power of your God is”.
He beckoned on Idahosa and the Chief Host and both of them said they were ready.
Quickly chipping in, Idahosa requested to be allowed to pray before the program ended as he intended to kill that day. Reluctantly, the moderator accepted. The Chief Host was unshaken.
The wizard spoke first and for about 27 minutes, quoting copiously from the old testament of the Bible, sixth and seventh books of Moses, Egyptian hieroglyphics, British writings, Jewish scrolls, Indian Maharaja and other mystical books.
As he ended, the moderator asked if Idahosa heard and again he said he did. ‘What do you have to say?’ Idahosa was asked.
‘There is nothing to say. I said the proposed conference is cancelled’. How ? The moderator asked.
Archbishop then opened the Bible and read quickly some passages from Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy and some New Testament verses.
He asked how many minutes he had left and was told ‘just 5’. “Fine, it is time for somebody to report to his maker” he blurted rising up.
There was pandemonium in the studio. With everyone watching, he turned to the self confessed wizard and chief host and asked :
“I just need an answer from you and your life is hanging on your answer. A witch is not supposed to live and I intend to kill you now if you are one”
At home and in the studio, viewers were glued to their screens and tension was palpable all around.
“Now answer me and this large viewing audience in one or two words. Are you a wizard? Just answer, Yes or No?
‘I am not’ “What did you say? Because I am ready to pray” Idahosa prompted.
‘I said, I am not a wizard’ the frightened man replied.
“Then there is no need to go on, stand up and leave the studio”!
The Chief Host quickly walked out as sighs of relief filled the studio.
The Christians among the TV crew smiled and kept giving each other the ‘thumbs up’ sign. Benson Idahosa began to fire in tongues.
Next morning, the Chief Host visited his office and even collected a Bible. He however still insisted to the Media that the conference would still hold in 7 days.
The media returned to Idahosa to inform him. ‘Is the conference still holding or not’?
“No comments” Benson Idahosa responded “but if the conference still holds, I will burn my Bible. I say it is cancelled”.
On the day of the opening, there was no conference. The next day, Archbishop Idahosa traveled to Lagos to see the President, General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, a Muslim.
“As you are very well aware, I told the whole Nation that the conference of the witches would not hold in this country and you can see that it did not hold”
‘Yes’, replied the Military President. ‘When I saw you and that fellow defending your beliefs and positions, I sent telex to all our embassies not to allow even one witch or wizard into Nigeria.They were all denied visas’.

Prayer Point: Oh Lord God, break me, remold me and uses me for Your divine purpose for my life henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Weekend!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
