How Prophet TIMOTHY OBADARE Died


+As Eulogies Pour In

 

    

        On Thursday, 21st March 2013, world renowned televangelist and founder of Christ Apostolic Church, Oke-Itura aka World Soul Winning Evangelical Ministry (IWOSEM), Prophet Timothy ‘Koseunti’ Obadare died.  His house at Oyemekun, Akure, Ondo State capital city, was host to guests who came to condole with the family of the late man of God.

            Obadare died at the age of 85 in his Akure residence before he was taken to a private hospital to confirm his death.  During his life time, he  was known popularly for his monthly crusade “Koseunti” that drew Christians from all denominations to Akure.  He was not diagnosed of any illness according to one of his pastors, Pastor Joseph Akinbodewa who spoke with us at Baba’s resident on Friday.

            Baba’s last born, Joseph Obadare also confirmed that his father died the time God wanted.  He gave up the ghost in the hands of his son Joseph.  Till death, Baba took his evangelism work seriously and it was in the course of this, he preached all over the world, winning souls for Christ.  He was until  his death the General Evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC).  Even in the time of crisis at the C.A.C.  Worldwide between  he and the authority, he never left C.A.C. till he formed WOSEM in 1980.  His ministry dates back to the 50’s with the C.A.C.  In 1962, Baba was the evangelist for Section B in C.A.C.  In 1969, he became the Assistant General Evangelist C.A.C. Worldwide.

            Then long after, a revelation came and God spoke to him that he had given him a bunch of keys but he had been building  on another man’s foundation.  Baba started his 1st Revival in Shaki in February 1970, and within 3 years, he founded 15 churches in Shaki, and its environ and the authority of C.A.C in 1973 went to bless the churches and these became Shaki Districts of C.A.C.

            In 1974, he took his revival to Offa in Kwara State.  It was at Offa that God worked miraculously through him.  In 1975, Baba formed a group called World Soul Winning Group (WOSGO); this group generated a lot of noise in C.A.C. then.  In 1980, he changed it to World Soul Winning Evangelical Ministry (WOSEM).  It’s an arm in C.A.C.  And that was how WOSEM started.

            Baba was a prayer warrior for Christ; he was a courageous person and someone who had passion for the ministry.  This year, Koseunti will be 43 years.

            He was the first ever blind prophet in Nigeria.  It was gathered that not for a day did Baba let his blindness weigh him down.  It was said that God opened Baba’s brain and put the whole Bible in his head.  This accounts for why he was gifted with the Scriptures.  He was not born blind, it was said he went blind when he  was in secondary school due to enemies who wanted to change his glory from good to bad; rather the glory waxed higher than they expected.  Baba Obadare is described by many as the General in the Jesus Army, and he did his best for the Church.

            Since he died, services have been held daily at his residence to celebrate his exit.   His favourtie songs were “Ope mi po lodo re, aiye o pa mi lekun mo jo mo yon ni ile re, ope ye baba o ye”; “Mo gbe jesu mide, alagbara mi mo tug be de”, among other songs.  Baba is survived by his wife, Lady Evangelist Obadare and his children: Pastor Paul Obadare, Evang. Samuel Obadeare, Joseph Obadare, among others.  Until his death his ministration cut across the world with churches in most African countries and abroad, while the headquarters is situated in Akure.

 

“President JONATHAN Must Fast For 7 Days To Avert Danger”


 

*LAGOS CAC Prophet, SEGUN ISEDOWO

 

Every beginning of the year is always marked with several prophecies from popular, and not too popular men of God.  This year is no difference.  One of such prophecies that calls for attention is from Prophet Oluwasegun Isedowo, the leader of Christ Apostolic Church (CAC), Calvary Cry and Miracle Ministry, Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos.

The televangelist during his 2013 prophesy revealed that God directed him to the President of the nation, Goodluck Jonathan to pray and fast for 7 days to avert great danger.  A lot of danger will be averted especially those targeted at him.  His words, “if President Jonathan can fast for 7 consecutive days in the first week of January 2013 with the support of all peace-loving Nigerians, especially Christians, who must fast during the first 3 days of this same month, the danger will be averted”.  He emphasized that disobedience to the voice of God may spell doom for the country.

 

Prophet Isedowo said, “should I be taken for an attention-seeking man of God and these warnings be unheeded, this could lead to the unfortunate balkanization of the country in spite of the country’s preparations to mark a century of Nigeria as a nation in 2014.  Should this avoidable catastrophe be allowed to manifest, the balkanization of the country into 3 entities will be preceded by an internal crisis and civil war of immense magnitude, which will negatively affect all Nigerians home and abroad. Mr. President is urged not to ignore the 7-day fasting as no amount of security beef-up around him night be adequate to deal with the evil designs of his enemies as only God in His infinite mercy can terminate their plans.
