“When I came from London, my intention was to go to LIVERPOOL to setup my own church of which my father in the Lord, BABA Nunoyon knew about my plan to move to LIVERPOOL to set up my parish there. And also the shepherd of CCC The Rehoboth parish London, my mentor, SUP/Evang. Yemi Adesiyan knew about my plans of opening my own parish there.
When I got to Manchester the Lord directed me to New Jerusalem Parish to do his work, because He has a lot of work for me in that Parish, and the Lord asked me not to work for anyone again but in His House. And for the past two years I have been doing what the Lord asked me to do, His work in His house free of charge for no cost from anybody, neglecting my family in this process, working late nights; And I wasn’t based on any salary or benefit from the church. I was working for God because He directed me to New Jerusalem Parish, Manchester. When I got to the parish I observed some things are not being done appropriately in accordance with CCC doctrine.
Then I approached the Shepherd about the significant reason of a Lantern in the Altar of CCC church and also the devotional services that were not taking place in the church and the spiritual implications to the church. When I noticed he was taking to all the observations that I brought to his notice then I asked the Shepherd what is the cost of a befitting lantern so that I can give him money to purchase it for the church, because it is very important for a lantern to be in the Altar of God in tune with CCC doctrine.
He gave me the price of the Lantern which I gave him the money and he purchased it and he put in the Altar of God, I was also the one providing the lantern paraffin for 6 months from my pocket, and there was excess paraffin then I stopped. The third Sunday when I got to the church in the morning before the service I was called by Prophet Daniel Adome that all the church members had decided that they don’t want shepherd Owolabi Oni in the church anymore, they wanted me to join them in the meeting of sending the Shepherd away from the church because of the atrocities he had committed since he got to that parish. There was this particular issue he committed with his close friend’s brother, Ade’s girlfriend, and all the incident was recorded in the laptop and the laptop was brought to the meeting, when they were about to play the shepherd Owolabi Oni’s recorded Video With his close friend girlfriend I was the one that stopped them from playing it, and I told brother Ade to delete the video and give Shepherd Owolabi Oni a second chance. Then I said any one among us that has not sinned before God should be the one to throw the first stone, and that was how I made peace that very day for him.
And I also promised to talk to him to change his ways and even Bayo Oduniyi his evil counterpart was there on that day amongst the people that were saying Owolabi must go on that day and he couldn’t utter a word in that meeting to defend Shepherd Owolabi. All CCC parishes in Manchester knew about the incident that I saved him from. After the incident he lost his respect and dignity amongst the church members because of the atrocities he committed.
I was the one that regained back his respect. After the incident when he talked in church people murmured and they refused to listen to him, I always stand up to defend him amidst the members on his behalf that they should show him some respect that he is God’s representative in this parish. After the incident he called me that he had something to discuss with me in his office, that he has secured a job and he would like me to support him with the church activities, because his job is delivery and he may not be around for days, and he doesn’t want when people come to church and not meet anyone there.
He said because he not in capacity to do anything spiritually. On that spot I told him my intention of moving to Liverpool and established my own parish, he now said, “ don’t please, the good things you have started in this parish do you just want it to die like that without nurturing it to a certain level? You can’t go like this oh!” Because of that statement he made I now referred back to all my previous four observations to him about putting things right, he now said you see why I don’t want you to go now. He said please support me for a while before you leave.
I asked him why is prophet Daniel Adome not doing the Friday prophets and prophetess service for the church and I also asked him why was Prophet Daniel not made Wolider of the church and he said do I notice he doesn’t know how to read and write, and I asked him that why are you saying this? He said can’t I see that he hasn’t conduct any services since I came to the parish and I kept quite. He said that was why he said I should take charge and put all my observations in place in the parish, I reminded him that I may leave at anytime, he said why are you going, we will build this church together. Then I started putting all my observations to make things work out.
At that point I started working in the church from Monday’s to Sunday’s working wholeheartedly in the church attending to members, doing the weekdays services, especially the Wednesday service which became very popular in Manchester, even none members were coming for the program then. This was when the problem started. The so called Bayo Oduniyi who was in the church for ages, whenever I am about to end the service with the grace , Oduniyi that was not at the service from the beginning will just come in and interrupt the grace from the back without anyone noticing that he was even in the church at all. So I will drop the grace and allow him to finish the grace. He did that for two weeks and I reported to the elders of the church and they called him and said but you were in this church when nobody and you did not pick up all this service when it was down, and this man pick them up and you when to interrupt the program. They asked him to apologize to me which he did and I forgave him and we hugged. Not knowing that it was just a camouflage. The second week he started showing jealousy and hatred towards me and also poisoning the shepherd Owolabi mind towards me, that the way people coming to the church because of the programs I was anchoring and my popularity in the church, the members and none members have accepted me and as a revivalist that if care is not taking I will take over the church from him.
From then I notice the shepherd was became cold towards me and I went to see him in his office to find out why he changed towards me, and he said, “I didn’t change towards you, is just that some members are telling me that you are now becoming more popular than me, that if care is not taking you will take over the church from me and chase me away.” At that point I reminded him about my early plans of moving to Liverpool to start up my own parish and that if I wanted to take over from you I would have joined the other members when they wanted to chase him away then.
I told him that did he remember that it’s this same Oduniyi who was among the people that said that you shepherd Owolabi must go. After the incident I and my family left the church, for three month. We started going to another church, it was a shepherd from Nigeria that came on a visit that gave me the massage that some people had offended you to the extent of vowed not to associate with them again, that the Lord said they are coming to apologies and l should accept their apologies because of my work you are doing there…To my surprise after three days the church patron, Evang Opeyemi OJO came to my house on behalf of the church to plead that I should come back to their church of which I accepted their apology, because of the program l got ,l didn’t go back immediately he came, two weeks after, an elderly woman called me from the church that they wanted to have a meeting with me that l should please honor them, which l accepted .The church elders and the women were present at the meeting except BAYO ODUNIYI, they all apologised that l should please come back to their church and continue the work of God.
One week after BAYO ODUNIYI, Owolabi ONI and JIDE ELEGBE who changed his name to peace on social media with the aim of raising false allegations against l and my wife. There was an issue of a woman That l should give her jingle bell water (OMI INU AGOGO) after given her, OWOLABI ONI called emergency meeting he said that the woman l gave water to is his candidate after collecting £50 from the woman and the woman picture, after then he changed the church padlock, since then l only go to their church once in a month”…To be continued in our next post.
