WOW! It’s Papa’s Diamond Jubilee (60 years) and I really feel the urge to share this message again.
Happy Birthday! Bishop David Oyedepo
It is no doubt that Papa received a mandate from God through an 18 hour long vision in May 1981 to “liberate the world from all oppression of the devil through the preaching of the word” of faith’, I am a living proof of his ministry and teachings. I have been consuming Bishop’s inspirational materials since leaving high school; my life has never remained the same. I am not a pastor, just a simple fellow who has found out some principles through the teachings of Papa; take for example, I cannot say when last I borrowed or lacked anything. I remember an incident that happened years back, it was an encounter with death, thank God that I overcame. The emphasis is not on the incident but my response at that youthful age, simply because I had consumed a lot of Bishop’s materials, I could speak like him (mimicking) and used most of his keywords. I remembered my friends and folks found it amusing especially how I could speak like him. My favourite then was the definition of faith ” Faith is a vital spiritual force that makes a natural man to operate in the realm of supernatual; operating in the very class of God, people marvelling at you, what a manner of man is this”. Coming back to the incident; that day I shouted “We don’t die like chicken”, very funny isn’t it; I didn’t say “Jesus.. Jesus…” I knew at that moment that I could not die without fulfilling my purpose here on earth and it was borne out of revelations I’d received listening and reading his materials.
I have not had any face to face encounter with Bishop but I can tell you that he’s my father, pastor, mentor and coach. I love you so much Bishop and pray that God will increase His anointing and wisdom upon your life. I celebrate you, your ministry and the impact you have had on the youths all over the world.
These are my favorite quotes from Bishop messages;
