Apostle Facey - delivered to minister

Today, Apostle Romeon Facey, through his Freedom Evangelical Association Ministry, located at Shop #42, Portmore Town Centre in St Catherine, is helping to deliver many who are bound spiritually.

Through the power of the Holy Spirit, he has seen many experience miracles that they never thought possible, such as miracle money showing up in people's accounts, people being healed, as well as the prophetic word changing their lives.

But, for the apostle, there was a time when he, himself, was in need of that very same kind of miracle.

Surrendering his life to Christ in 2001 after visiting a crusade and coming under conviction, he accepted the invitation.

Apostle Facey said it was not easy following up on that conviction because, as a young person and Christian, he was made fun of.

"A Rastafarian man almost killed me for sharing my testimony. I came under a lot of peer pressure and was tempted by women. I eventually yielded to the peer pressure and started going back to parties," he told Family and Religion.

Even while going to parties and enjoying secular music, Facey said he couldn't share visions of hell and hearing the voice of God. Just like Saul on the road to Damascus, he soon realised it was really 'hard to kick against the prick'.

"One Saturday morning, while I was watching television, I felt an urge to change the channel. There was an old lady singing the song, 'When He was on the cross, I was on His mind', and the presence of God came into the room. My knees started shaking and I fell on the floor and could see every sin I ever committed. I cried out to God, and the presence of the Holy Spirit came into my heart and erased my weaknesses," he said.

Since that day, Apostle Facey said he has been overcoming whatever obstacles come his way by reading the Word of God and staying obedient to the Holy Spirit.

However, there was still one area in his life in which he needed a touch from the Lord as he said he was going through an emotional period in his life due to relationship hurt.

"I asked the Lord Jesus that if He's real, He's to walk in the room and touch me. Suddenly, I felt a hand touch me and took away all my emotional pain and gave me the solution for the problems. When I looked behind me, there was no one, but my situation changed radically in days, and today, I am still walking in that miracle," he said.

Born and raised in the small community of Berkshire Hall in St Catherine, the Caribbean Maritime Institute past student has been married to the love of his life, Carolyn, and is the father of three children.

For him, the best thing about his ministry and his relationship with the Lord is seeing people being set free and their lives being changed by the power of God.

"Serving God is so rewarding that I wouldn't want to go back into the world. After all, there's nothing to go back to."
