Celebrating Primate Elijah Ayodele: The Prophet I Am Close To From Afar3 min read
I have never met him, never spoken to him in any way but my relationship with Primate Elijah Ayodele of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church is really intimate.
You may be wondering how it is possible to be close to someone you haven’t met or someone who doesn’t even know you, it all depends on what the person does and the value such person adds to your life and beliefs.
I gave up on prophets in 2017 due to the bad eggs in the ministry. I have seen self-acclaimed prophets in my country making prophetic declarations about some subjects and changing it later on due to the circumstances on ground during the period. Some of them would predict the winner of an election only to change it a few hours to the election after seeing the direction of things. I used to follow them but withdrew my attention because I realized they were just looking for attention.
I first read about Primate Elijah Ayodele in 2018 when Nigeria was preparing for a presidential election slated for 2019. We read so much about Nigeria in our country and there was never a day I won’t see the prophecy of Primate Ayodele. He accurately prophesied the winner of the election and went ahead to reveal what will happen in his administration; something I have never experienced in Zambia all my life. How can you name the winner of an election that has not been held and still reveal what will happen in his administration? It’s strange.
This called my attention to the man of God and I started listening to him more, although it wasn’t like I believed him then, I just wanted to see the result of his prophecy just to clear my doubts. The election came and President Muhammadu Buhari emerged in 2019. Since 2019 till now, I don’t think there is anything Primate Ayodele said Buhari will experience in his administration that has not happened. The man of God talked about increase in kidnapping, economic hardship, increase in prices of commodities, increase in crime rate and many others; they have all happened.
Apart from speaking about his country alone, another fascinating thing about Primate Ayodele is his prophecies concerning every country in the world. I have never seen this man in any country or with any president so I wonder how he gets information about these countries. This is definitely not a product of flesh and blood but divinity.
Ever since 2018, I have been following Primate Ayodele so much on the internet, I must give special kudos to the media team of his church because they always intimate me unconsciously about his activities, it’s a really rare opportunity. I read a few weeks back that he embarked on a 17-day appreciation and philanthropic programme which I have been following since the start. He has been to schools, police stations, visited the aged and sick in their houses, given financial support to church members to cushion the effect of the hardship in Nigeria.
Sincerely, the only prophets that can be compared to Primate Ayodele are the prophets of old; the ones we read about in the holy bible. The likes of Prophet Elijah, Prophet Elisha, Prophet Moses, Prophet Isiah, Prophet Ezekiel and many others. They were prophets who stood as watchmen for nations just as Primate Ayodele has been acting since the inception of his prophetic ministry. He is not an ‘albacradabra’ prophet that performs magic, He is a true prophet inside-out.
I learnt his birthday is tomorrow Tuesday, 14th Of February, 2023 and surely, I may not be able to forgive myself if I don’t celebrate Primate Elijah Ayodele whose prophetic ministry stands out among others.
