In 2018 as political activities revved up to a successor in the State of Osun after the eight years of action-packed performance of my friend, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola as Mr Governor, I was a guest of the Osun State Government. I was at the Presidential Lodge with my crew, and the political train of erstwhile Chief of Staff to Ogbeni, Alhaji Gboyega Oyetola was in full swing. Code named Ileri Oluwa, meaning “God’s Promise”, the buzz in the air was that Oyetola would cruise to victory under the coattails of the Second Oranmiyan, our moniker for Ogbeni. A grassroot man to the core, Ogbeni put everything into the succession project and mobilised all resources to ensure Oyetola continued with his progressive policies.
Since I was on ground, I counseled the Oyetola Group not to take anything for granted as the election would be close and one word kept cropping up in our spiritual radar: “inconclusive”. This was three months away from the governorship election and the prophecy was published in the soar-away column, The Christian Walk on Tuesday 24 July 2018. Here were our exact words in that landmark prophecy thus: “Nigerians, election observers and political analysts and pundits are complaining about the influence of money in the recently conducted governorship election in Ekiti State. Wait till you see and watch what is about to happen in Ipinle Omoluabi; it is going to be a Naira Tsunami. The Adelekes will spend money as if it is out of fashion for the election, but as the Holy Spirit showed us, if the APC (All Progressives Congress) will do what we have told them and follow instructions, Oyetola will manage a razor-thin victory on Saturday 22 September 2018″.
On 23 September 2018, the apex electoral umpire, INEC (Independent National Electoral Commission) “plagiarised” us and declared the election as “inconclusive” as media reports informed the world thus: “Breaking: INEC declares Osun election inconclusive: INEC has declared Saturday’s Osun election as inconclusive. The Returning Officer said the declaration was because the number of cancelled votes was higher than the margin between the two top candidates. The candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ademola Adeleke scored 254,698, while the APC governorship candidate, Oyetola scored 254,345. The total number of voided votes is 3,498.” The gap between PDP and APC was a mere 353 votes.
The APC did what we recommended before we left Osogbo for Texas, and in the run-off declared by the INEC “God’s Promise” was fulfilled and Oyetola was declared the democratically elected Governor of Osun State. Now, four years later, Oyetola is up for re-election. Will he be re-elected? What is his political future?
Back in 2018, one word that kept cropping up as we prayed and sought the face of our Lord Jesus Christ on the outcome of the election that brought in Oyetola was the word: “inconclusive”. Since 2018, we have been extremely busy to pay a visit to Oyetola because of other commitments and we are now back to base in Texas after gruelling presidential whistle-stops few weeks which we shall save for another day in this column.
Now back to what will happen in Osun 2022! You see, the True Lord God Almighty created each and everyone of us and placed us in this planet for a particular assignment or purpose. In other words, no human being is an accident, but a spiritual being wonderfully and specially created by the Maker to accomplish a task in the number of days allocated to each of us, as Proverbs 3:16 disclosed to us. The Creator and Maker told Jeremiah this spiritual truth unambiguously thus: “The word of the Lord came to me, saying, ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you; before you were born, I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations”. (Jeremiah 1:4-5). Although Jeremiah complained he was a young lad, the Maker brushed aside his excuse and told him that was his mission on earth and Jeremiah fulfilled his godly assignment on earth.
Similarly, in his epistolary to the early believers in Galatia, Apostle Paul defended his apologia and disclosed his calling prenatally as well: “I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries and was extremely zealous for the traditions of my fathers. But when God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by his grace, was pleased to reveal His Son in me so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not rush to consult with flesh and blood”, … (Galatians 1:14-16). I have explained many times in this column that every human being has a calling on this earth. The people of the world called it destiny, which can either be fulfilled or unfulfilled. Many on earth do not even know why they are here in the first place. I have also explained in more details in past articles and in many of our Bible Studies and seminars how to discover your God-given destiny, mission and purpose on earth.
The Adeleke family is a famous and highly revered family in the historic town of Ede in Osun State, Yorubaland. The family is also very wealthy, and this is an incontrovertible fact. But the Adelekes are not supposed to be kings but kingmakers. When you are created by the Creator to be a kingmaker and you want to be a king, you are veering to a field that the Maker of all things and you haven’t assigned you into, and two things will inexorably occur: frustration and death. Chew this: “The Lord said to him, ‘Go back the way you came, and go to the Desert of Damascus. When you get there, anoint Hazael king over Aram. Also, anoint Jehu son of Nimshi king over Israel, and anoint Elisha, son of Shaphat from Abel Meholah, to succeed you as Prophet. Jehu will put to death any who escape the sword of Hazael, and Elisha will put to death any who escape the sword of Jehu. Yet I reserve seven thousands in Israel – all whose knees have not bowed down to Baal and whose mouths have not kissed him”. (I Kings 19:15-18).
You can also read the call on Samuel to anoint Saul the first King of Israel and also the anointing of King David, Solomon, etc. as commanded by the Lord God Almighty. In the Levitical Priesthood, the Almighty God clearly delineated the unique role of the children of the Tribes of Levites and Simeon from the other tribes up till the time of Eli as priest when the Almighty God took that priestly role from that clan because of the egregious sins of Phineas and Hophni as He said as much: “Therefore, the LORD, the God of Israel, declares: ‘I did indeed say that your house and the house of your father would walk before Me forever. But now the LORD declares: Far be it from Me! For I will honour those who honor Me, but those who despise Me will be disdained. Behold, the days are coming when I will cut off your strength and the strength of your father’s house, so that no older man will be left in your house. You will see distress in My dwelling place. Despite all that is good in Israel, no one in your house will ever again reach old age. And every one of you that I do not cut off from My altar, your eyes will fail, and your heart will grieve. All your descendants will die by the sword of men. And this sign shall come to you concerning your two sons Hophni and Phinehas: They will both die on the same day. Then I will raise up for Myself a faithful priest. He will do whatever is in My heart and mind. And I will build for him an enduring house, and he will walk before My anointed one for all time. And everyone left in your house will come and bow down to him for a piece of silver or a morsel of bread, pleading, “Please appoint me to some priestly office so that I can eat a piece of bread?” (I Samuel 2:30-36).
Nearly four years ago, Oyetola fought hard, tooth and nail to make sure his Ileri Oluwa or “God’s Promise” political train would be able to berth in the murky politics of the State of Osun. He moved from an “inconclusive” election to razor-thin victory as prophesied in this column. But this year in the forthcoming Osun 2022, Oyetola will see a blow out and will be re-elected comfortably fair and square as our prophecy declares.
In my prophecy on Osun State 2018 election, I disclosed that Ademola’s elder brother, Senator Isiaka Adeleke (now Late), alias Serubawon, should not venture into the governorship race again after his brief spell as Governor during the brief diarchic rein of former military President, General Ibrahim Babangida. Here were my exact words in that prophecy nearly four years ago: “Senator Isiaka Adetunji Adeleke should not entertain the idea of returning to the Government House in 2018. He will not succeed. All past governors of Osun State wishing to return to the seat are chasing wild geese in 2018”. That prophecy was released on Friday, 6 January 2017. Serubawon died three months later.
As aforesaid, kingmakers always self-distrust when they want to transit from being kingmakers to kings. In the Word of Life, the True Lord God Almighty called Moses as a kingmaker/prophet and his other Levites as priests. “Korah son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and certain Reubenites-Dathan and Abiram, sons of Eliab, and On son of Peleth-became insolent and rose up against Moses. With them were 250 Israelite men, well-known community leaders who had been appointed members of the council. They came as a group to oppose Moses and Aaron and said to them, ‘You have gone too far! The whole community is holy, every one of them, and the LORD is with them. Why then do you set yourselves above the LORD’s assembly'”? When Moses heard this, he fell facedown. Then he said to Korah and all his followers: “In the morning the LORD will show who belongs to him and who is holy, and he will have that person come near him. The man he chooses he will cause to come near him. You, Korah, and all your followers are to do this: Take censers and tomorrow put burning coals and incense in them before the LORD. The man the LORD chooses will be the one who is holy. You Levites have gone too far”! Moses also said to Korah, “Now listen, you Levites! Isn’t it enough for you that the God of Israel has separated you from the rest of the Israelite community and brought you near himself to do the work at the LORD’s tabernacle and to stand before the community and minister to them? He has brought you and all your fellow Levites near himself, but now you are trying to get the priesthood too. It is against the LORD that you and all your followers have banded together. Who is Aaron that you should grumble against him”? (Numbers 16:1-11). That was why Moses swiped at the Trifecta Rebels of Korah, Dathan and Abiram who are now “trying to get the priesthood too” and they were destroyed by the anger of the Lord.
King Saul lost his throne as the first ordained king of Israel because he offered unlawful and unauthorized sacrificed which only Samuel as a priest could offer as commanded by the Jehovah God Almighty (See I Samuel 13: 1-15). The same King Jeroboam of Israel also ran into trouble when he became king and started ordaining priests (See I Kings 12:25-33). Because King Jeroboam wanted to usurp the powers of a king and priest at the same time, the True Lord God Almighty sent a priest to him as recorded in I Kings 13:1-6: “By the word of the LORD a man of God came from Judah to Bethel, as Jeroboam was standing by the altar to make an offering. By the word of the LORD, he cried out against the altar: “Altar, altar! This is what the LORD says: ‘A son named Josiah will be born to the house of David. On you he will sacrifice the priests of the high places who make offerings here, and human bones will be burned on you'”. That same day the man of God gave a sign: “This is the sign the LORD has declared: The altar will be split apart and the ashes on it will be poured out”” When King Jeroboam heard what the man of God cried out against the altar at Bethel, he stretched out his hand from the altar and said, “Seize him”! But the hand he stretched out toward the man shriveled up, so that he could not pull it back. Also, the altar was split apart, and its ashes poured out according to the sign given by the man of God by the word of the LORD. Then the king said to the man of God, “Intercede with the Lord the LORD your God and pray for me that my hand may be restored. So, the man of God interceded with the LORD, and the king’s hand was restored and became as it was before”.
That Jehovah Lord God Almighty hasn’t changed; He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). Before that iconic and revered man of God, Pastor Ayo Babalola passed on in 1959, the Holy Spirit directed him to go to Chief Obafemi Awolowo to tell him as his successor as a prophet. Awolowo dismissed the man of God, insisting he wanted to become President of Nigeria. Awolowo’s destiny was to be a prophet and a kingmaker, but Satan deceived him to become a king instead of being a kingmaker the Lord God Almighty Who created him wanted him, but he was deceived to join that Satanic cult known as AMORC. That was why he did everything in his power to become president of Nigeria, but all his efforts ended in a fiasco, but the gift of the Lord is given without repentance (Romans 11:29); consequently, Awolowo was still a prophet and whatever he said during his lifetime would always be fulfilled, yet he could not become president. That was why the man died of frustration and a sad man, because he missed his destiny.
For another example, the late Chief MKO Abiola was created to be a kingmaker but not a king and the moment he wanted to cross from the destiny the Creator had for him, we saw what happened. Currently, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu will be another example. The True Lord God Almighty who created us all and assigned us our individual roles on this earth made Tinubu a kingmaker and not a king. He became senator and governor for brief spells so that he would know how to fish out for individuals he could make as kings. He played that role perfectly well for nearly twenty years, but now he wants to be a king. He will eventually fail as I disclosed in this column two weeks ago. Of course, he may win the forthcoming 2023 Presidential Election just as Abiola won the 12 June 1993 presidential election, but Tinubu will not be crowned as king. Again, Tinubu is a kingmaker and not a king. Ademola Adeleke is not destined to be the Governor of Osun State, but a kingmaker who will be instrumental in placing someone as Governor in the near future, if he listens and respects our prophecy.
Now to the forthcoming 2022 governorship election in the State of Osun. Nearly four years ago, Oyetola snatched victory through one word: “inconclusive” and is now up for re-election. There are three words now in the spiritual horizon as the outcome of the election namely: “fair, square and conclusive” as my prophecy declares.
There is no other life to live apart from the life of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is our Creator, believe me. He is not a prophet, He is the Lord God Almighty Himself, because He said so in John 10:30; “I and the Father are one”. Again, He said in John 14:9 thus: “Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? There is plethora of Bible references for you to know that my Lord, Master, and Savior Jesus Christ is the Sovereign Lord God Almighty Himself. So, if you think you believe in God, you must give your life to our Lord Jesus Christ, because as He again declared to us in John 14:06: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”.
You can give your life to Jesus Christ now! Say this prayer now using Romans 10:9-10: “Jesus Christ, I come to You now with penitent heart and contrite spirit. I confess I am a sinner. I have been living my life the way I want, which is a rebellion against You. I know that nothing good resides in me. That is why I come to You today to forgive me of my sins and rebellion. I believe in my heart that You came to this world over 2,000 years ago. You were born by the Virgin Mary in the city of Bethlehem of Judea. You lived with us for 33 years and was sinless. Then, You went onto the Cross and died for my sins and sins of the world. Then You rose up again three days later after defeating Satan and the hordes of darkness in the nether gloom and today, you are holding the keys of death and hades in Your Hands. Jesus Christ, I confess You with my mouth as my Lord, Master, and Saviour. Your Death on the Cross had paid the penalty for my sins and Your resurrection was for my justification. From today onward, I will obey, worship, and praise You. I will not live for my self-centered and egoistical life anymore. I will do what You want me to do. I will serve You for the remainder years of my life. I will tell others about You and witness to others about Your love and works of redemption and finished work on Calvary. Take me as Your Own. Seal me with the Holy Spirt. Enable me to do what You have created me for on this earth. Use me for Your Glory Jesus Christ and let me live my full life span. Let me fulfill my destiny and after I have accomplished the purpose for which You created me and sent me to this earthly temporary realm, I will return to You as the Shepherd of my spirit and soul reign with You in Your Kingdom for eternity in Your Holy Name. Amen”.
It is done now. You are saved and are now a child of the Living God. He is your father from now onward. Pray that this Jesus Christ will direct you to a Holy Spirit-filled and Word-based Church in your neighborhood where you can join other believers to grow in your new faith from now on. Please be careful you do not keep company with your former friends and crowds so they will not draw you back to your former ways of life. Remember the Holy Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come The old has gone, the new is here!” Remember you confessed your sins to the Lord Jesus Christ, and He forgave you, because He cannot lie. Make sure you do not renege on our vows never to commit those sins again. Find a Bible believing Church and tell the pastor or shepherd there that you have just given your life to our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ and you want him to walk you through walking the Christian Walk. Hallelujah!
Tell him I sent you, and if moved by the Holy Spirit to contact me, shoot me an email: email@example.com. Congratulations and welcome to the family of the Living God!
