The testimony of Celine John-Kennedy shared recently in Orlu Diocese is another reminder that the dividing line between our world and eternity is very thin. Indeed, God is using every available opportunity to alert us to the need to always serve Him in all sincerity and transparency, as every hidden activity undertaken by any person will eventually be exposed, and the minutest blemish will cost men and women eternity in God's kingdom.
Sister Celine John Kennedy, Her Husband, Pastor
John Kennedy David, And Their Children
Celine John-Kennedy is the wife of Pastor John-Kennedy David, the pastor overseeing the Watchman Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement, Umuaka District in Orlu Diocese, Imo State.
She was sick and had gone to the hospital where she was examined by the doctor who also prescribed some drugs for her, and asked her to go. While at home that evening, a spectacular thing happened. Before her husband and some brethren, her spirit departed from her body, and what she experienced and saw after that is better narrated by her. When Charismatic Signs visited her at home in January (2012), she was still awed by her experience, and grateful to God for granting her another opportunity to return to finish her work in the Lord's Vineyard. Also speaking to Charismatic Signs, Pastor John-Kennedy said that for several hours, his wife's body remained “as cold as ice.” This is how he narrated what happened: “I boiled hot water and put her legs inside it but there was no effect whatsoever. Her body was as cold as ice up to the neck. If you placed her head on a seat, it would fall helplessly,” he said. Let's now hear the testimony as narrated by Sister Celine during a special service at the Watchman Fellowship Centre, Umuaka, on October 25, 2011:
