….’Tell the truth if he is being good to you’…Yesterday, I had an encounter and even if I had shared this and the testimony within this encounter to my small circle of family and friends, I am led to share this to the whole world.
Here goes my testimony in it’s raw form.
This morning, I had a dream that a dentist struggled while trying to get my tooth extracted. Eventually, I told him to leave it as it was. I woke up with the urge to speak in tongues so I did. I wanted to listen to a “speaking in tongues” video to encourage me to speak in tongues for a long time but Papa Enoch Adeboye’s 79 hours praise and worship flashed on my youtube. I decided to play that. It was praise but I wanted to speak in tongues. As I was about to change it, the singer began to speak in tongues and urged others to continue to speak in tongues so I did not change it.
Fast forward to later in the day, I had a dental appointment but I was just going to do a filling so all in all, that was supposed to be uneventful. They suggested that I do two fillings on the same nerve endings but when I remembered the dream and also mainly the fact that I wasn’t prepared for it, I just told them no, I will do one. Then the dentist suggested that the place he will be filling is close to one of my teeth that needed extraction. He asked me if I will just go ahead to fill as well as extract. I told the dentist that I had had a dream about a tooth extraction. I thought about it a bit. It was either I had three done at once under surgical anesthesia or I removed one now and did two later. So I said, let’s go ahead.
I began to speak in tongues while they got things ready. To cut the story short, I got my tooth extracted but it was not an easy one. Unexpectedly, my tooth broke and it was not from the root. So the dentist had to remove the pieces from the root which was a pressurized experience (I could fill so much pressure but not pain because of the anesthesia). At a point, I had to tell the dentist, please stop and I called Jesus in and asked him to take control. He was there all along but I spoke his name with my mouth and got everyone to say Amen. The experience did not last any longer after the prayer.
So if you were the one and you had such a dream and you were asked that question by your dentist later in the day, what will have been your answer? I went ahead because I felt God knew I needed to have that procedure done, he knew something bad could happen and he had gone ahead to get me to prepare. Since I didn’t know what to pray for or what the dream meant, it just made perfect sense for the holy spirit to help me pray through tongues. I don’t know what could have happened today but I knew that things could go wrong in a split second. My dentist was nervous, I could feel it and he developed pain in his hand after a while. I am still healing but I am thankful that I had the opportunity to raise the name of the Lord Jesus high.
“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me”. – John 12 vs 32.
I sang that song during my morning walk and I didn’t realize what was going on in the spirit realm. Maybe one of those assistants or the dentist needed to know that Jesus was still in charge. I will continue to lift the name of Jesus high so that he can draw all men unto himself because at the end of the day, whether we live or die, the name of Jesus will forever be living. Will you join me!
I have been inspired to share this testimony by God, my writing sister and the song “Testify” by Maverick Music. …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
