I was reading one of the posts in a group #CNO belongs to and I was forced into culling the article to make a post on your darling news site, celestialnewsonline.com.
“One of the Sacrament and Pillars of a True Celestial Church member, laid down by Saint SBJ Oshoffa is being present to worship annually for the Annual Christmas Convocation service which commences on the 20th December to 25th December every year.
Imeko is CCC’s Jerusalem and Holy land whose foundation was laid by the pastor prophet founder himself, Saint SBJ Oshoffa for the congregation and gathering of members of CCC worldwide.
Imeko houses historic facts about CCC, it’s the resting places for the pastor founder and other saints in the church, the carcass of Papa’s vehicle that led to Oshoffa’s death is also exhibited there and many more.
It was the wish of the pastor founder, SBJ Oshoffa that all Celestial Church members congregate at Imeko.
If you have not being to Imeko, you are surely missing something.
You will see the power of God in reality. How a small sleepy town became a ground for worldwide congregation of millions of people from all walks of life. Imeko 2017 is loading.”
Dear brethren, the purpose of bringing Imeko to the fore was to have the gathering of CCC members from all regions in one place.
In the 80s that we were being taken to Imeko, we were exposed to seeing all kinds of races, tongues to mention a few. The place was always filled to the brim year in, year out. Suddenly, things took a new shape when the devil crawled in through fake prophesies, the people of our church no longer trusted themselves anymore, and everybody became a lord to himself.
Imeko of that time cannot be compared to Imeko of now terms of patronage, uniformity and sense of belonging. It’s a revue that we all looked forward to annually. What we have now is an Imeko of fraternity, caucus, Imeko of certain sect, love is no longer watchword, our unity song is no longer ‘Bi Gbogbo Aye Dite Mo wa…, everybody is doing everything haphazardly! What a shame!
It’s not the chandelier, the fittings, the lighting or the beautiful Basilica that will make Imeko to regain its lost glory, Nooo!, it’s the Love that was thrown out of the church that should be brought back. It’s the oneness that was left behind that should be embraced, maybe, God, through this, can set our feet on track!
Ijo Mimo Yio Se Iranwo Fun wa!
