The day was Saturday April 7, 2018. The event was a church dedication of Temilaseyori Mini-Cathedral of Inri Spiritual Evangelical Church, founded by the renowned Primate Babatunde Elijah Ayodele at Okulun Village, Araromi Badagary Express Road, Olunhunda Local Council Development Area.
Unknown to the guest preacher, Prophet Israel Oladele Ogundipe (JP), the minister in charge of Celestial Church of Christ (CCC), Model Parish Alakuko Area of Lagos, fondly called ‘Genesis’ who took to the center stage to deliver the sermon, he never expected any spiritual message.
Oladele took time to remind the mammoth crowd that the most important thing to do on earth was to honour God with one’s endowment.
Citing several chapters of the scripture, he enjoined the audience to live each day of their lives as if it was their last moment.
However, the atmosphere changed when Primate Ayodele noted for his accurate prediction stunned the audience by urging the Celestial Church to behold their future pastor in Oladele.
According to the seer, he said God was telling the leadership of Celestial Church Worldwide being led by Pastor Emmanuel Oshoffa to bring up Oladele as he was future pillar of the church.
His words: “I am not afraid to say this and the press can go ahead to quote me. The man to restore the glory of Celestial Church is Oladele. Let the current Cele Pastor bring him up.
“He is a youth filled with Holy Spirit that will go into places. This is the message from the almighty God and it shall come to pass. He (Oladele) is a potential Cele Pastor whether some like it or not.
“Gone were the days when people look down on white garment churches, we are to lead he end time gospel and Oladele is one of the soldiers.”
He didn’t stop there as he has words for the President Muhammad Buhari. “No way for Buhari in 2019, he can’t win he should go home and relax. Remember I warned former President Goodluck Jonathan about same thing in 2015. Senate President, Bukola Saraki should prepare to contest the presidency failure to do so will have negative consequences on his life as he will be troubled.”
Responding during an interview session with TheLead Online, Prophet Oladele thanked the Primate who he regarded as his spiritual father.
“I respect Primate Ayodele so much. I have read so much about him in the media. This is my second time of meeting him. My prayer is that all the good prophecies from God concerning my life will come to pass.
“As a cleric, I am in the Celestial church to serve and not to rule or lead. If it’s the will and wish of God for me to serve the church in the capacity of Pastor, here I am. But I am serving God and shepherding his followers as directed” he said.
