Rejoinder: The Holy Spirit Will Change The Story Of Mike Tyson

tysonThis is a rejoinder to the tragic story of Mike Tyson, the former heavyweight champion of the world which appeared on page 18, of The GHANAIAN TIMES of Monday, 26th August 2013.

In his confession, Mike Tyson admitted that he was on the verge of dying from alcohol and drug abuse. He had done everything humanly possible on his own to overcome the addiction but has failed. He had been in and out of rehab centres three times without success.

The only way out for him is change his life: His story is so tragic that for him, six days without alcohol or drugs is a miracle.

Only time will tell whether he will relapse and go back into alcohol and drugs again because he is relying on his will power, confidence, faith and self esteem to see him through. And I predict that he will fail again and again.

I say this because there is a spiritual dimension to the problem of addiction of all kinds, whether alcohol, drugs, smoking of cigarettes and marijuana/Indian hemp, pornography, masturbation or sexual immorality. Those of us in the Holy Spirit Ministry know this.

I have been in the Holy Spirit ministry since 1998, and I know what I am talking about. We worked among born-again inmates in Agodi Prisons, in Ibadan. More than half of the inmates had addiction problems. Even though they were born-gain, they still smoked, got drunk or used harmful substance. Some sold the little food they got in prison to sustain the addiction. Some sold the food brought to them by their mothers to buy drugs.

They had tried their possible best to overcome the addiction by conventional methods and failed. Their story might be compared to that of Mike Tyson, who had the advantage of rehab centers but still failed to overcome the additions.

The tragic story of the prison inmates was what the Holy Spirit and I met on the ground when we went there in 1998, to evangelize and introduce them to the Holy Spirit Ministry. I told them that God had brought back the Holy Spirit as head of the church once again so that he can use his ministry to change the story of all born-again by fulfilling the New Covenant prophecies in their lives (Jeremiah 31:31-34 and Ezekiel 36:26-27).

If they believe this and practice fellowship with him, and renew it on daily basis, they will come under his ministry and changeover from life in the flesh to life in the Spirit. They will then open up and tell him their tragic story of hopeless struggle to overcome the addictions.

The Holy Spirit then begins the story changing process in the Spirit life by fulfilling the New Covenant prophecies in their lives. He delivered them from the power of sin through which the addiction is perpetuated. Once delivered from the power of sin, they were able to let go the desires of the flesh and overcome the addictions, without suffering from withdrawal symptoms as is common in conventional rehab centres.

He will change Mike Tyson’s story
God is at work through the Holy Spirit ministry to meet the challenges of modern civilization with all its complexities. These were not issues in biblical times but today have become big issues.

The fact that people like Mike Tyson have visited rehab centers on more than two occasions is indicative of the fact that the application of psychotherapy techniques that rely on will power have proved unsuccessful in dealing with addiction of all kinds.

And the success of the Holy Spirit ministry in changing the story of those addicts after fulfilling the New Covenant prophecies in their lives, point to the fact that divine solution to the problem of addiction far surpasses all human effort. We cannot change our story in such difficult situations without help from above.

The Holy Spirit will use his ministry to change Mike Tyson’s story. He will change his story, if he is able to satisfy the following conditions:

i. He must become born again: Mike Tyson must find a Bible believing church and confess his sins and accept Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour, and become born-again.

ii. He must believe in the Holy Spirit ministry to change his story: Mike Tyson should believe that God had brought back the Holy Spirit ministry to change the story of all borns agains no matter how sad or tragic.

iii. He must practice fellowship with the Holy Spirit: Mike Tyson must practice fellowship with the Holy Spirit on daily basis. He should open up and tell him his tragic story with drugs and alcohol. He should then plead with him to use his ministry in the Spirit life to change his story.

iv. He must watch out for peace of God: The Holy Spirit will take over and use his ministry in the Spirit life to fulfill the \new Covenant prophecies in his life. He will deliver him from the power of sin, and its life in the flesh. He can now let go the things of the flesh and overcome his addictions. He will now experience the peace of God which will give him true peace of mind. The experience of the peace of God is the surest sign that the story changing process had commenced and will be completed.

v. He must practice fellowship with the Holy Spirit for life: He is free so long as he continues to practice the fellowship. The Holy Spirit will help him to succeed in all his ventures and guarantee him eternal life.

Help me to contact Mike Tyson: If anyone can reach out to Mike Tyson by any means possible, let him contact me and I will put him on the Holy Spirit Fellowship Prayer Life Programme, and the Holy Spirit will take over and change his story, to the glory of God in the mighty name of Jesus.
