Psalms 34:1 I will bless the lord at all times and his praise shall continually be in mouth.
The best way to start off is grace found me and brought me to a man whom God has endowed with all I need to be fulfilled in life, destiny and ministry at the exact time I needed one.
The main issue then was not to be connected to a man but to the right man that has what it takes to lead you as father to fulfilling and manifesting your destiny.
So it is not an ambiguity to say that the restoration apostle Johnson Suleman is the one. Papa I celebrate the grace of God upon your life.
We all may have been helped,guided or instructed by different men at different stages of our growth in life and Ministries and we thank God for such men who in one way or the other have helped us yet we all need a specific man to guide us to the full fulfillment of our call and individual God given assignments.
It was for this sole reason and purpose I began a search that would eventually bring me and my family more than a decade ago to the apostle prof. Johnson Suleman, a true teacher of the word and prophet of our time.
God bless him for the impact he has made and still makes daily on me, my wife and especially our children
Romans 11:33 says…
…“o the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgements and his ways past finding out”.
God connected me to Papa through listening and watching on youtube the messages of late archbishop Benson Idahosa.
I virtually watched the late archbishop idahosa’s messages on youtube over and over again on a daily basis until I could not find more of his messages to watch because as at then there were very few messages and videos of him uploaded on youtube.
It was in the midst of searching for a minister that could speak in the manner of Papa Idahosa that I came across a brother by name Mcauley who mentioned apostle Johnson Suleman to me.
This brother who happens to come from Benin city in Nigeria even said to me that apostle Johnson Suleman was the late archbishop idahosa’s son. In fact this got me all the more curious and interested.
The rest was history and since then we have been following Papa hoping that someday our long desired dream of serving under him as well as having him as our mentor and father in the lord would come true.
It really came true when I least expected it – in december 2017. My family and I decided to do the crossover service of 2017 in OFM London so I had to google to get the contact number which I succeeded.
I called this number to ask for information regarding the crossover service as my family and I wanted to attend.
Guess what? it’s hard to believe but it is the truth.
As I paused waiting for an answer to my question, I got this unbelievable response I didn’t bargain for.
He said sir, I see you with a microphone as a minister preaching, are you happy to serve under Omega Fire Ministries to start a branch where you are now.
This is like Saul who was out looking for the father’s missing donkeys and ended up on the throne 1 Samuel 9:15-27 & 1 Samuel 10:1
When he had done speaking, he then answered my question saying yes we will have a crossover service and informed me of time and venue.the man whom God used on that fateful day is today my senior Pastor and national coordinator of Omega Fire ministries in the uk/ireland Pastor Ejiro d. Bazunu.
I am happy to announce that this uncommon encounter through the special grace of God upon our father in the lord apostle prof.Johnson Suleman led to a branch of Omega Fire Ministries in Bristol in April 2018.
We can’t thank the God of our father enough who has been faithful in supplying our needs since these 2 years especially the wonderful people serving with us to fulfil the vision of God in their lives.
Come to think of it, he didn’t know my names nor where I was at the time of call. The big mystery in this is he didn’t say start a branch where you live as the case may be but he said start a branch where you are now. I actually live in Weston Super Mare but on the day of the call I was in Bristol so this is for me a true sign that God wanted the branch in Bristol.
Proverbs 16.9; “a man’s heart deviseth his way but the lord directeth his steps. God’s ways are not the ways of man”.
Pastor Christian is happily married to his well cherished wife Esther, a woman with a great love for God, addiction for prayer, fasting and the word of God.
She has been of an immense help to me on every side since our marriage in 2004. God has always been faithful to us since we got married 16 years ago blessing us with wonderful children.
Matthew 19:26b…. “with God all things are possible”.
Keep praying and believing God for he shall surely bring to pass your expectations and desires. My experience has taught me that you may not know when and how God will do it.
If there is a man to pray there is a God to answer.
