Ark of God’s Covenant Ministry (AGCOM) came about through a revelation. I am Apostle John Chi. When God called me by his grace and used his servant Prophet TB Joshua to anoint me and entrusted the light of the Word in me, I was overwhelmed by this grace. But, I had this burden in my heart to take this light to my people. In my supplication to God about his vision, I experienced a remarkable encounter with the Lord Jesus Christ on the 2nd week of July 2013.
I was born on September 26, 1976, in Esu –Wum, Menchum Division of the North West Region of Cameroon out of a union between Mr Chi Victor and his wife Chi Lucy Ekange.
Accepting the calling.
I left Primary School in 1989 and lacked the funds to continue in secondary school. I then learnt motor electricity yet stopped for want of money. So, I left for the South West Region and worked with Honorable Efite Andrew as house Boy. One day in Mutengene, I saw a crowd listening to a preacher and went closer. Suddenly, the preacher spotted me out and prophesied to me saying: ‘God is going to use you mightily, make you a great and famous Prophet that would be known all over the world’. I took him for a fake pastor.
A few days later, our church pastor from Sierra-Leone, said the same thing as above and declared a period of fasting. I accepted but broke the fast before the due date. When it ended, he asked me to accept the calling. I was perplexed. He continued saying God had asked him to take me to his country. Finally, he told me to be humble and leave the rest to God.
In December 1999, we reached Lagos, Nigeria. He lodged me in his friend’s home and left. One day, the half-paralyzed head of the household said he had a vision in which God told him to ask me not to continue to Sierra-Leone and that God showed him my star. He then asked me to join the SCOAN free evangelical school, which I did. After my first day at SCOAN, I realized the need to know more about Jesus Christ our Saviour.
Back home that night, I asked God to reveal who Prophet TB JOSHUA was. I soon fell into a trance, found myself in a room lit by the rays of a large star. A heard a voice saying: “stand up and go outside”, which I did. There, I saw three men dressed in white, all looking up to the sky and saying “Hosanna to the God of Prophet T. B. Joshua”. There stood the latter staring at me. I then woke up. Funny enough, the song I had been singing before going into the trance was still on my lips. The following night, I was again caught up in a trance and saw a man standing by my bedside. His body was like bronze and his eyes blazing like fire. He led me to Cameroon where he showed me places to be developed. Finally, he said: “whatever you ask the Father in my name, I will do”. Now conscious, the words I had just repeated after him were still on my lips.
When it was my turn, Michael opened the gate and asked me to go in. Once you get in, you are shown into a temple where everyone is dressed in white. The latter came in from the gate and told us that the high priest was soon going to come out. While waiting for the high priest’s arrival, everyone present listened to Senior Prophet TB Joshua’s message. When the high priest and the elders came out, Michael was among them, The High priest was led to the throne. I could not see his face, but for his hands, feet and the spots where he was nailed. I recognized a few people who came in through the gate with me. Later, the high priest started commissioning us.
He called the first person and assigned him an evangelist and made another a pastor. Then came my turn, he pointed at me, and said, ‘I am sending you as a prophet’. Moreover, He gave me a small cross and asked what I desired. I requested for grace to fellowship with Him. He granted my request and I began coming down. I landed on earth and woke up.
Terrified, I told my colleagues about the dream. A few days later on the mountain, I had another vision wherein I died and my spirit left me. The spirit watched my casket being carried in a Limousine. As the vehicle was about to leave for the village, it split into two. The front part carried my corpse while the rest of the car carried my spirit. At the village, the grave had been dug and the casket was taken for burial. My spirit went to the grave to view the corpse for the last time before burial. The faces of Apostles Paul, Peter, Elijah and Ezekiel were what I saw and got frightened. I identified their names on their foreheads. I woke up and told my colleagues. A week later, Prophet T. B. Joshua anointed us in the office of men of God.
Sometimes later, the pastor who had brought me to Lagos came and continued to his country without me since I was now worshipping at SCOAN. The building of the SCOAN main auditorium started and I was highly involved. One day, a man told me to follow him to Prophet T B JOSHUA’s office. The latter asked if I could go to his village. I gladly did with two other brothers. From there, I was sent to AKURE for over a year. When the mission was over, I thought of coming back to Cameroon and starting a business venture. In a dream, Prophet T B JOSHUA met me and said, “You are not going anywhere, for now, you’re supposed to be in vendor class”. I began doing well in class. As time went on, the Man of God came to me in a dream and said: ‘if you continue this way, you will make Cameroon great’. I then woke up.
I explained the dream to Mr Mbawa Patrick and the others in the sitting room. One of them, Mr Joachim, went to SCOAN and told the coordinator, who related the dream to Prophet TB Joshua. The latter invited me to SCOAN and inquired about the dream. I was admitted into the vendor class. I thank senior prophet T. B. Joshua for what the Lord has used him to do in my life. Again in the year 2010, while on my usual assignment on the mountain, I had a vision and I got really scared. In that vision, I died and my spirit left me.
I found myself before a huge gate with Michael as gatekeeper. So many of us had died and were standing in a queue. Michael had a big book in front of him. Whenever he asked someone to come forward, that book would be opened and the person’s life on earth was cross-checked. If you were qualified, the gate was opened for you to go in but, if your case was the opposite, you were sent to a desolate place.
