As a student, my soul followed hard after Papa ArchBishop B. A. Idahosa to the point that at the end of each semester, I will go to Benin, stay with a school colleague and friend who worked with NNPC-NPDC Benin and lived at Akhionbare in the GRA, just to attend Papa’s services. My friend was also a member of Church of God Mission. I began to buy Papa’s Books and take them to Lagos to sell and distribute. This gave me opportunity to get Papa’s books and tapes and consume them. This began in 1993/94 till 1997. I concluded on attending the Word of Faith Bible School in 1998 just to sit under God’s Servant and drink from the Living fountain and download all of God in His great Servant the Archbishop. But God had other plans. And His plans are always simply amazing. Here’s what the Lord did:
1). On 20/5/1997 I had this unique vision. Papa ArchBishop B.A. Idahosa held a Gospel Outreach. It took place in a place like a stadium. As he concluded the explosive Gospel Outreach, He called me out before the multitude and gave me A COPY OF THE BIBLE and TWO (2) BIROS. And said to me, “Go, Proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ Worldwide and Deliver the Full Benefits to All.”
PAPA IDAHOSA LEFT FOR HEAVEN ON THIS DAY (12/03.1998): On this never to be forgotten day, 2/3/1998, My Papa ArchBishop B. A. Idahosa went to Heaven. God be Praised!
2). Again, On September 29, 2002 Papa ArchBishop B. A. Idahosa was once again sent to me. This was the message he brought to me: “The Rod Is in Your Hand, Use It! Go and Use the Rod in Your Hand and Conquer the World for Jesus.”
3). On April 15, 2006 I had this Vision between 00:38am and 01:24am. In the Vision, Papa Idahosa held a Special Conference and I sat under him as he ministered. He preached as usual the same message the same way. I was given so many Audio Messages of Papa Arch. B. A. Idahosa. When he was through, here is part of what he said to me “Go to All the World and Preach the Gospel. Heal The Sick, Raise The Dead, Do All The Signs, Wonders and Miracles As Commanded… Go For He Hath Sent You and is with You!” Papa Concluded by saying: “My Job is done. You Are To Go. They Are Waiting For You. They are waiting In their Problems…In their slavery. And The One Who Hath Sent You – The Lord Jesus Christ – Hath Made His Final Choice. You Are His Choice!”
4). On 4th of August 2009 I had this vision. We were in an extraordinary meeting. It was Archbishop B. A. Idahosa that ministered. It was an awesome meeting. When he finished we all told him we wanted to pray for him. He went down on his knees and we began to pray that God will use us to do more than he did, go to more places than he went to, have more passion and compassion to walk in his steps and do supernatural and extraordinary miracles, wonders and signs than all he did. At this point, he suddenly got up. Then He spoke to me and said, “Go, In Peace: You Are Released.” And he left.
5). On September 28, 2009 I had a very unique visionary encounter that ended at 03:31am. In the Vision, Papa Arch. B. A. Idahosa came to speak in a programme that Heaven organized. When he finished speaking I walked up to him where he was resting in his air-conditioned car. He opened the car door and I immediately went down on my knees. He said, “Oh, you are already on your knees!” And he held my hands and prayed a heart felt prayer for me…. He asked the one with him in the car to play a tape for me to listen to and he stopped talking. After listening to his preaching, I took over the stage and in a very loud confident voice I began to declare the Word of God! Papa Arch. B. A. Idahosa came just to dedicate me to The Lord’s service.
Papa said to me “Go, Proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ Worldwide and Deliver the Full Benefits to All.”
“The Rod Is in Your Hand, Use It! Go and Use the Rod in Your Hand and Conquer the World for Jesus.”
“Go to All the World and Preach the Gospel. Heal The Sick, Raise The Dead, Do All The Signs, Wonders and Miracles As Commanded… Go For He Hath Sent You and is with You!”
Papa concluded by saying: “My Job is done. You Are To Go. They Are Waiting For You. They are waiting In their Problems…In their slavery. And The One Who Hath Sent You – The Lord Jesus Christ – Hath Made His Final Choice. You Are His Choice!”
Papa Idahosa held my hands and prayed a heartfelt prayer for me and I took over the stage!
“Go, In Peace: You Are Released.”
