When Benjamin’s mother was pregnant, a spiritualist foretold that she was carrying a baby girl. She was mentally and physically prepared for a female so when Benjamin was born and the doctor declared, “It’s a boy!” confusion and bewilderment ensued. His mother was disappointed at his gender and this, combined with the prophetic declaration, planted deep seeds of mistaken sexuality in his soul.
As he got older, he discovered that he was entirely indifferent to girls but instead developed a desire and passion for his fellow men. Lustful thoughts filled his heart for other men and he began entering into relationships with them and sleeping with them. Benjamin would also chat on the internet with older men who would ask him to send videos and photos of himself. He was only 17 years old and yet deeply, terribly entangled.
Deep down, Benjamin knew that this was unnatural and desired to be free but the force was so strong that he couldn’t control it by himself. He began praying and crying out for deliverance but each and every time the temptation was too strong to resist.
When he heard about the Paraguay Crusade with Prophet T.B. Joshua, he decided to come with his mother who was all too familiar with her son’s deep inner struggle. After receiving a touch from Prophet T.B. Joshua in the name of Jesus Christ, the wicked spirit which possessed him cried out, saying that it was a woman and its mission was to destroy his life completely. Light triumphed over darkness and the evil spirit was forced out in the name of Jesus Christ.
Since the deliverance, Benjamin felt as if he was seeing the world through entirely new eyes. The lustful thoughts and strong urges for men had vanished completely. He couldn’t even contemplate how he had such desires before! Instead of depression, torment and anguish, the peace of God now fills his heart.
