My Story of Grace

My name is Pascal Amanfo and this is my testimony. I spent many years dabbling into all kinds of things,not knowing my way and stumbling here and ther. I got to a point where everything I did no matter how good wasn’t giving me fulfillment. I knew it was God becau I had been born again very early, But I spent years away from faith and lived life on my own terms. And so I knew I had to return to my original plan of God for my life.
It wasn’t a dramatic encounter it was just me looking back and feeling an emptiness and knowing only Gods purpose for my life could bring fulfillment, peace and joy.
I had an reawakening, my eyes popped open and all of my naughtiness was laid bare before me,it just made sense to me that I have strayed and was my own boss. If you look at what the bible says about the prodigal son ; he wasn’t such a bad guy, he just wanted control over his life and that’s what we all do, we are not necessarily bad people. We just want control, we don’t want to live life on Gods terms.
I felt there had to be more to life, it couldn’t just be making films and waiting for the next project and going to this hotel and going for that award and waiting to go to America.i did a couple of things I wanted to do like go to Vegas,I came back and said “is this it?” So I had a reawakening and I was lucky to find the Grace and Mercy of God, I reached out for it and said “God I do not want to spend the next minute living life on my own terms,From today I choose to live on divine purpose, My next intake of oxygen will be by your will,Every single thing I do will be heaven propelled”. Immediately I said these words I started crying and worshipping, I kept saying God I consecrate myself and seperate myself for your use from this day onward" I woke up the next morning and felt NEW
I didn’t even have money at the time and trying times were coming.
After I made my stand for God made known, all hell broke loose,I wasn’t called for jobs and all my finances were attacked.
I had one year of trouble but within me I knew it was well and I had peace and fulfillment that I wasn’t going to trade for anything else.
Prior to this time I was struggling soo much with sexual immorality,it was such a struggle because I was in an industry where sex came easy because it was the norm, it was acceptable, it was no big deal and it was a lifestyle.
You could go for an award show, meet a pretty lady, exchange numbers and be with her that night. It was the showbiz lifestyle it was a sin that soo easily beset me.
I understand grave and I understand mercy but I made a personal convenant with God. I remember standing in my room one night and I said " God besides the new convenant of the New Testament,the convenant of the Finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary I make a convenant with you today, " If I am going to slip at 12noon, take my life at 11:59".
I said these words and they were not theologies,because theologians can break it down and say " No Jesus has finished it all for you" i understand all of that but this is coming from a place of struggle, I was tired of going around my mountain. I had come to a place where I felt like there was fire in my bones and I was soo mad at the devil and myself for being soo foolish, it’s been 5 going on 6years since that time.
Now as I preach around Africa I see young people who are bound by the same things and I share my experience with them.Even before i pray people are falling under the power. I see people who are tied to masturbation, pornography and all kinds of filth bcos it’s a major spiritual plague on young people and social media makes it easier , so I am particularly drawn to that and have ministered to countless people.
I do purpose driven conferences, helping people understand that there’s a purpose for their lives and breaking them free from whatever it is that is clouding their visions, the conferences release them to go with fire. Wherever I go be it the market place or wherever it’s about affecting lives and revealing Jesus to them! Hallelujah !!!
