Scripture:- Acts 8:5-13
Topic:- Oba Sir Isaac Babalola Akinyele, KBE
Text:- Acts 8:8

Once upon a time, a king lived in Nigeria, the Southwestern part, Ibadan, to be precise.

This King stood for Christ and shut the mouth of the devil.

He lived from 18 April 1882, to 30 May 1964.

He was the first educated Olubadan (non-hereditary traditional ruler) of Ibadan and the second Christian to ascending the throne.

I read about Oba Akinyele, the first CAC (Christ Apostolic Church) President, the king who stopped using his cap.

In those days, no one dared to confront satan or his institutions in the kingdom of Ibadan, the tradition in those days could not outrightly be separated from satanism.

Human sacrifice and other occult practices were very predominant.

The king after accepting Jesus ordered the abolition of many of the occultic practices.

He stood his ground despite the opposition from almost the whole Ibadan land.

He stood for Jesus, believing Him without an iota of doubt.

One day after settling disputes brought to the Palace in the presence of the Chiefs, unknown to him that charms have been sprinkled on his seat before he came in.

He couldn’t stand up from the seat as he was glued to the chair.

The Chiefs began to mock him. ‘Where is your God? But you claimed that He has all powers. Let Him come and rescue you now’

The King looked at them and he started reciting Psalm 24 and at the end, he said “I rise up in the name of Jesus.”

And moved his body, and immediately the charm was nullified.

The Chiefs went home ashamed, some of them later gave their lives to Jesus.

Another one was a year that a horse was to convey him to a ceremony, unknown to him, the occults in the city had placed a charm on the horse.

They employed drummers who beat the drum with charms to make the horse die while carrying the King.

Actually, the standing order was that horse must not fall nor die while conveying the king, else the king would be rejected.

The whole city was watching as the horse began to misbehave and started crying with water gushing out of its eyes.

Fear gripped the whole city, the occult men were already jubilating that the king’s end has come.

Baba David Babajide and other young Evangelists at the scene began to sing… “Agbara Re ga ju ti ota lo oooo, imo Re ga ju tesu lo, Olorun ko seun ti ni o, oso aiye kan kole di o lona ise Re, agbara Re ga ju ti ota lo.”

Meaning …… “Your power is greater than the enemy, Your knowledge is higher than the devil. You’re the God of all possibilities, no sorcerer can stop you. Your power is greater than the enemy.”

The crowd chorused the song started by Baba Babajide, dew began to fall during mid-day, the horse began to walk majestically, crying like a baby.

When Baba, Oba Akinyele was conveyed to the end and the horse neither fell nor died, the charmers had no choice but to surrender to the Kingship of Jesus.

And since that day, they stopped attacking Oba Akinyele.

RAW faith provokes RAW miracles.

May we return to this era of tearing down the kingdom of the devil with RAW faith like our fathers of old.

Prayer Point:-
Oh Lord God, disgrace all my enemies with open disgrace henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Weekend!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
