Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb 13:8) and He is still working miracles in lives everyday. It’s amazing the Father’s rapturous love for His children and anyone that has experienced this love can never remain the same again, no matter the circumstance.

Revered Gospel music minister Chris Shalom share the testimony with SelahAfrik of how his album More Than A Conqueror saved a brother from committing Suicide. This testimony will send shivers down your spine and make you stand in awe of the Almighty God.

Chris Shalom said:

“Hello dear friends, my name is CHRIS SHALOM. I received this testimony from a dear brother on the 25th of December 2013 at 7:18pm of the impact of my album MORE THAN A CONQUEROR and my MINISTRY.

I am most grateful to GOD for the inspiration By the HOLY SPIRIT. A big THANK YOU to my father and coach REV CHRIS OYAKHILOME for teaching and showing me the way of the LORD.

May you be Inspired, Encouraged, Energised and Ministered to by the holy spirit as you read thru every line of this testimony. GOD bless you.

— ‘Hello sir. My name is…(Identity withheld) we’ve met a number of times. I’ll send a picture to help you with identifying me. However, I’ve wanted to share this with you for a while and here goes… first of all the picture…

Ok, the back story is a little long so I’ll leave it out but mid January this year, I ended up in a hotel room with every intention of committing suicide so I swallowed 18 sleeping pills, ate my ‘final meal’ and lay down to sleep. I had stayed up most of the previous night so that I would be worn out and sleep off immediately. As I lay down to sleep I played your album and put it on repeat on my iPad… well, after 8 futile hours of waiting…. nothing happened. my eyes were shinning brightly…. no sleep came! So, I said I’ll try plan B.

Plan B involved swallowing poison so I put it together and swallowed it all. Sent out my suicide note via email (it was actually programmed to auto send today thinking I’ll have been dead the day before) and once again lay down to die. after a while, I literally began to feel the life ebb out of me but I was playing your album again on my iPad and every time it got to ‘More than a Conqueror’ my spirit responded and said ‘you cannot die’, at ‘You are Holy’ with Farlon, my spirit always brightened up with ‘there’s a purpose for your being’. Well at one point in time, (about the third or fourth replay of More than Conqueror) my spirit was energised, my mind could no longer dominate and I just said ‘yes Lord, I submit to your will for my life ‘ – I was running away like Jonah, that’s what got me into the situation in the first place. At that, from my innermost being I threw up all the poison, cleaned myself up and drove my self home! But was quite weak physically. I was admitted that night but by morning, I was completely healed of all the effects of the poisoning and was able to go home by evening!

I’m grateful for the inspiration behind your songs. Thank you for not just singing but ministering the Spirit in your music. I had originally planned to play ‘Time after Time ‘ by Eva Cassidy. If I had done that, I’m sure I wouldn’t be here today.

Thank you for your ministry. God bless you real good.

It means that all I go ahead to achieve in the ministry of the gospel henceforth, you are a part of that.

Thank you so much and have a merry Christmas.

blessed man!'”
