This is what we’ve got been doing for the previous 18 years. My ministry is into taking good care of widows and the much less privileged. Over 100 individuals are on our scholarship, we even have the prisons ministry and when you go to the Sapele Prisons, they may inform you of our influence. The Controller-General of Prisons even wrote me greater than 5 occasions via the Deputy Controller -General of Sapele Prison appreciating me for reaching out to folks within the jail. Every month, we give substantial a part of our tithes to the jail to assist them and, even throughout my final 12 months’s birthday, we took a time off to go the jail. We additionally go to orphanages and lepers to render help and put together them for the dominion of God.   I by no means needed to be a pastor    It was a troublesome activity. When I used to be small, folks informed me a few pastor who got here from Guyana. My mom was in Accra, Ghana then, she   was born there. At eight years previous when she went for campaign, a man of God from Guyana walked in direction of my grandmother, the late Madam Agbeyo Idisi, and informed her that ‘this little girl you are carrying will give birth to a child, number three among her children and he is going to be great and he will help humanity.   ‘When this child is born, take care of him very well and he will try to run away from his calling, but God will handle him and he will come back to Him just as Jonah did in the scripture’. My mum left Ghana and, after a few years, she received married to Mr Iboyi Okokporo. After giving delivery to the primary baby, Vero, she is now married to Ezekiel Eyarefe.

She gave delivery to Keffe Iboyi, my quick elder brother after which me. So my grandmother mentioned the prophesied baby had been born and took me away. People began asking why and she or he mentioned a prophet gave prophesy to her in regards to the baby a few years in the past,   however I went via plenty of challenges from the very first day my mom received pregnant to when she gave delivery to me.   On April 14, 1976, when l was born, folks thought I might not survive. It took me 5 years and three weeks to stroll.   It was apparent the satan was enjoying pranks on me, which is why, if I see anyone in downside, I exploit my final sources to assist him. My life is a residing testimony from day one. My father died some years later and my mum, after doing her greatest, died too. My father was a priest of the Alleluia Church and I grew up there. Alleluia church was delivered to Nigeria by Evangelist John from America on February 2, 1954 and the identify was later modified to Full Gospel.   My father renounced his religion as a result of the church was not doing properly, we additionally did. Many years later, one other man of God rose to take over the ministry, Pastor Peter Efemini, now Reverend Peter Efemini, he’s now underneath me. God used him to arrange a campaign and, earlier than that campaign, the late Evangelist Cousin Mosheshe and Mimiyerijesu got here to the group and prophesied that God was going to make use of me. They mentioned I used to be going to be a really nice man of God. They prayed for me and left, however I used to be not satisfied. My thought was that pastors don’t do properly.

A day later, Jesus appeared to me and mentioned “my son, I am the one that spoke through my prophet from Guyana that you are going to be a great prophet and I am going to use you though it is not your will, let my will prevail”. I awakened, it was a dream.   I left the group and went to Port Harcourt to stick with a buddy for a few month. I used to be there when the dream got here once more. God informed me to go dwelling or you’ll die.   I refused. Then I used to be concerned in an accident and I nearly died. I labored in Nigeria Dredging and Marine. I used to be a former rubber service provider and likewise palm oil vendor. I additionally labored at Songhai Delta. God gave me cash. At the age of 19, I already had over N4m in my checking account. So when the calling got here, the little cash I saved, about N15m million, I used it to purchase land for the church. I bumped into issues. My companies then weren’t progressing.   I’ll pray and pray and anyone will seem earlier than me in my dream and say “you cannot run away from me, so come back to your Maker”. There are three varieties of pastors: Those God referred to as and their arrival was introduced by God, those that adopted leaders due to their willingness to serve God and God used them, and people who simply love the calling, the way in which pastors gown (these are the folks inflicting confusion within the right this moment as a result of they don’t have the spirit of God totally in them). This is why I couldn’t be a part of politics as a result of God mentioned if I play politics, they may paint me black. I requested God whether or not politicians are usually not righteous and He mentioned Christians, minor prophets can play politics however main prophets shouldn’t; even within the Bible they didn’t play politics.   Then I got here dwelling and one other campaign got here and the Lord mentioned “go to that crusade because I want to make another relationship with you”.

I went to the campaign and I re-gave my life to God, so the pastor began taking good care of me. From there, I turned kids’s teacher. Later, l joined the choir and from there l turned youth chief, choir chief, assistant pastor doing earlier than God referred to as me once more. The Lord mentioned “I am going to use you to do great work and your ministry is going to be Promised Kingdom Ministry Incorporated Worldwide, aka Overflow Chapel”. I requested, “what is Overflow Chapel?”   The Lord mentioned Overflow Chapel is from John 23 verse 5, which says ‘I will prepare a table before you in the presence of your enemies, and your cup will overflow’ and He informed me that anybody who believes in me, out of his stomach shall stream rivers of residing water. He mentioned the ministry was going to be overflow of therapeutic, overflow of deliverance, overflow of all the pieces and that’s how the ministry began.   How God lastly received me   So this nice man of God, Rev Peter Efemini, who God lastly utilized in changing me informed me that God mentioned he ought to come and work underneath me, that when a man is underneath a king, regardless of the bead the man is carrying, he’s nonetheless underneath the king.   He mentioned I shouldn’t be afraid that I’m carrying the crown, which was why he left Full Gospel the place he skilled me, nurtured me and introduced me as much as Promise Kingdom. Reverend Efemini remains to be working with me now. I re-ordained him. He is now a Bishop-elect and, as I’m transferring to Archbishop now, he would be the subsequent Bishop. Our ministry formally began on September 26, 2002 and we used to go from village to village.   People would say “come to the city” and I might say “no, if everybody goes to the city, who will preach to the people in the villages?” And when folks noticed the anointing, the therapeutic of the blind, they mentioned that is actual. There have been so many miracles then, so that they began making an attempt to take me out of the group. But the king mentioned, “My son, if you leave now, you know we do not have any major prophet in Okpe Kingdom, please stay with us.” He had to make use of all the pieces. I turned the ‘Prophet of the kingdom’ after which the President-General of Okpe Christian Council. I’m accountable for over 3,000 ministers in Sapele and Okpe. We have branches within the kingdom earlier than we began taking the ministry out of Delta. We at the moment are in Edo State and Abuja department will open in May.   Abduction    We have been praying in regards to the challenge of Sapele and that’s the reason in previous years, we organized crusades, seminars, to teach our youths. Yes, there was a time in Sapele that you can not fgo round freely with out operating into kidnappers.

It is true that l was kidnapped on November 30, 2015, at about 9.25 pm, as a result of they found that God is utilizing me to scale back crime within the society. Some evil folks determined to kidnap me after they found that occultists and native medical doctors in Sapele have been coming to provide their lives to Christ. I’ve used my fingers to burn 340 shrines, we broke some constructing used for idol worship, they usually met and determined to stop my actions.   They tried bodily and non secular issues, no means, so that they lastly determined to kidnap me. When the abductors got here, they informed me that their mission was to kill me. One of them mentioned l was a giant man, “so allow us to take him away and demand a ransom of N100 million. They took me away to a forest. Six of them truly got here to the home to abduct me however within the forest, I counted 21 of them.   God confirmed that He is God. I prayed to Him that if it was Him, Jehovah, that referred to as me, that every one the abductors ought to go blind, whereas offering a means of escape for me. Even me that prayed the prayer was amazed. I used to be seeing them however they might now not see me.   They now began begging me to assist them, saying, ‘Man of God, we know you are a powerful man, please pray to God that our eyes should open’. My king and others introduced soldiers into the forest they usually have been taking pictures into the air to intimidate them to run away and depart me. I feel what God did in response to my prayer was to organize the way in which for my rescuers. They ran in numerous instructions as they heard the overwhelming gunshots. I understand that within the race for death and life, God opened their eyes, however they didn’t run within the course the pictures have been coming from. Since that they had run away, I began shouting for the search party to know the course of the place I used to be.   When I got here again and other people heard the story of what occurred, many gave their lives to Christ. I don’t even know right this moment whether or not the abductors have been amongst those that gave their lives to Christ. If you have no idea, God does his issues in mysterious methods. Now, we’ve got been doing our greatest to verify Sapele is secure. Most of the people-causing issues in Sapele are usually not from right here and we’re nonetheless making an attempt in order that, with one voice, we will obtain our intention.   Devil fights again   Besides the kidnapping, demonic forces nearly killed all my kids. Four of them took ailing and have been admitted in hospital on the identical time as a result of I’m into deliverance ministry. Every Wednesday, folks come for deliverance from all components of the world. Those which might be barren, individuals who have issues of their instructional life, these hooked on smoking, doing medication, and so forth come for the service. When God delivers them, the demons begin preventing again, generally my automobiles will simply go up in flames. Some days in the past, three turbines packed up. Last 12 months, a generator blew up. That was the satan preventing again, however God will inform me the explanations for such happenings and inform me to not fear about them. If anyone tells you that the ministry is straightforward, it’s a lie.

What pastors undergo generally is hell. We undergo pains. When you rescue a man from the satan, be relaxation assured the satan won’t relaxation.   The downside with Sapele   We have one downside in Sapele, disunity. Inside that disunity, we’ve got discrimination, then that spirit of “it is not my business”. Many in Sapele nonetheless have this spirit of pull him down, they may do something to drag you down, even in politics, we see them too. I used to be the President of Amukpe Christian Council for six years, about 38 denominations. I simply handed over to Reverend Bukeno of Christ Chosen Church and we are attempting to beat these issues. Sapele is backward spiritually and in all the pieces. Look at our solely seaport, it’s not functioning. AT&P is dead, Eternit is gone, and Life Flour Mill is struggling to remain afloat, however we’re praying that issues ought to transfer on. Thank God for Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.

He actually tried for Sapele. He is the one governor who has made us perceive that Sapele remains to be a spot to recollect. In his first tenure, he actually tried for Sapele. We pray that he does extra in his second tenure. Sapele is, nonetheless, rising spiritually now, all we want is unity to maneuver Sapele forward, and prayers to make it get better its misplaced glory.
