26-year-old occult, Adjumani Joel Laud Kojo, has willingly accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and personal Saviour after living in darkness for 10 years as an occult.
At the age of 16, the then senior high student who was living with his family at Sege in the Greater Accra Region was exposed to occultism after reading several occultic books and materials with the demonic content.
The teenager who gradually transformed into adulthood embraced the occultic practice for a decade and it started tormenting him until he ran to Christ for freedom.
According to Kojo, he was connected to various evil forces from the earth to the sea and the universe at large.
“I used to interact with different types of spirits that do not belong to God. For instance, in the Sea was the marine spirit, Universe was Kata Daki, Shriharrow Clemmahaderi,” he confessed.
When asked whether the family he was living with was aware of this, the young man answered in the negative.
“There was a time my mum came out at dawn when I was about to make a sacrifice. Although she did not realize what I was doing, I cautioned her not to come out at that hour again,” he said.
He indicated that he was led to the Calvary Temple in the Lebanon District of The Church of Pentecost in the Ashaiman Area by two brothers during a church programme dubbed, “Marathon Prayers” recently, where one Elder John Arhin led the congregation to pray for him.
Kojo said he confessed during the prayer session that he owned a storey building, eight flat houses at various locations, a bus, eight private cars, 15 tanker trucks, 11 tipper trucks, and a motorbike as well as huge sums of money at the bank.
He stated however that he did not want to have anything to do with any of those items, including his clothes, as they were acquired through rituals.
He also alluded to possessing a spiritual ring that enabled him to conjure money in different currencies, adding that, “I used to sacrifice a cat on the 31st of December each year, boiled it with its blood and consumed for powers.
Kojo continued his confession by saying, “I attended Buddhism, Eckankar, traditional temples, Mahaderi temple, and Islamic prayers but after examining Christianity, I realised that there is power in Christianity, adding, “The name of Jesus Christ is so strong and powerful.”
Kojo has since been baptised in water and now worships with the Salem Assembly in the Zenu District in the Ashaiman Area.
