Stop Calling Me Mama G – Patience Ozokwor
Starttells caught up with her at a crusade organised by St. Marks Anglican Church in Eziobodo Village of Imo State, where she shared her salvation experience.
According to her, she normally organises a personal retreat for herself in the first few days of the new year, when it was time to have her 2016 retreat, she heard the voice of the Holy Spirit telling her to fast for 21 days, she complained that she have so many projects to handle; endorsements and movies to shoot within that period, and the Lord extended it to a 30 days fast due to her complaints.
During this fasting period, the Lord revealed to her, how she will be a voice for him all over the world, how people’s attention will be channeled from her image on Nollywood to the gospel.
She said one of the things God warned her on, was her dressing and appearance. She said that putting on make-ups, wearing Jewelry and putting on trouser as a Lady is wrong, she said that she has been preaching to colleagues in Nollywood, but God told her to put off her dreads, to stop wearing jewelries and trousers, that she could have gone to hell, if she died December 31, 2015 despite the preaching she’s been doing, just because of her appearance.
She asked the Holy Spirit to prove to her, give strong reasons, why that was a sin, and spirit of God replied that she should browse about it, that testimonies of personal revelations God gave to people are all over the internet, and all of them are saying virtually the same thing, that she should find those informations to help her life.
She made mention of her social class, how the creme de la creame of the society, will attend her funeral and how such event won’t be a reflection of the position of her soul.
She subsequently got to the internet and read testimonies of God’s encounter with people, she read about an Igbo woman God encountered, and a woman called Margaret from Edo State, who could have gone to Hell for hating her Husband. She said that people in Church is making God cry, due to their dressing, their loose life and conduct.
She also took time to explain how a parent-children relationship ought to be.
On this, she said that some of the terrible things children do, is a mirror of what their parents do. She went on to cite an example of a Pastor’s wife, buying short dress for her daughter, but will still come to the church and condemn such dressing.
We went further to ask about her immediate family reactions to her new found faith, to which she answered that her daughter was upset with her, telling her that spirituality is a thing of the heart, and it doesn’t need to affect her dress code. Patience Ozokwor replied her daughter that she should be left alone with her Jesus. The brother also thought that she was mad, on hearing the news, and had to call her to confirm that she is mentally sound.
