A Sight To Behold!
From the inception of Imeko Xmas Convocation, it has become a ritual that something new is always added annually to surpass the previous year. This was evident at the just concluded event as those who came saw and those who saw conquered.
Yes, spiritually, life is a festival and a celebration but at this year’s CCC festival, so many people were completely in awe as they gazed at the sight of the massive temple before them-The CCC Worldwide Headquarters Basilica. With what all eyes saw, it would be understatement to just call it a Basilica, it’s indeed a sight to behold!
Festival Of The Poor
At the heart of the celebration, there were the poor who were all part of the celebration. They were not excluded because it was a celebration of love, moment of sharing which also coincided with the birthday of our Pastor, Rev. EMF Oshoffa, so, the poor were taken care of by collective efforts of some Celestial Church members who gave their widow’s mites to OmoCele Crew to help in disbursing to those who are less privileged amongst us and, of course, the sons and daughters of the soil of Imeko. This is one aspect of the celebration that should be emulated by all because a celebration of this nature must always be a festival of the poor.
Three Bundles Of Joy Were Born
Let’s somebody shout Alleluia! During this annual convocation, God blessed some families with three bundles of joy. One of the members of the Board Of Trustees, Most Sup. Evang. Banjo made the pronouncement during the announcement time at the New Basilica.
The Good Defeats The Bad Against All Odds
A lesson we should all learn about why we are where we are today concerning the state of the Basilica is that, everyday sun rises to give us a message that darkness will always be beaten by light; It’s a sign given to us by God that we should follow the same natural rule and enjoy celebration of the good defeating the bad . For 35 years, Satan, through difference mechanisms had made it impossible for the church to complete the project but today, the reverse is the case. May Jehovah be praised.
Partners In Progress
Seeing the gigantic edifice before them, hundreds of Celestial Church members who stormed Imeko this year wanted to be sure if all they have been reading about the project on social media was not fallacy were short of words and many started transferring to the accounts while some issued cheques. In fact Imeko 2017 was a carnival of sort, there is no carnival left. The entire community became involved in making things happen. I congratulate all partners in this project and the people God used to make it happen. May God bless their homes and colour their lives with joy. Amen
Coming up next is what Sup/Evang. Pius Olarewaju told me about Baba Jorotom concerning the Basilica project…you can’t wait to read it!
