It was an emotional Friday at the Mountain of Fire deliverance Ministry Grammer school Ikorodu, As the the Body of Late Pastor Adeleke Samson Asenowo was laid to rest at the entrance of His church which he was the general overseer for more than a decade.
The pandemic could not prevent family, friends, ministers of God, Prophets and the Inspirational Gospel Ambassadors Ministry (IGAM) from honouring the late servant of God who has touched alot of lives in Ikorodu.
Due to the Corona virus outbreak, the Christian wake keep for the pastor arranged for 26th of March was cancelled and done on the same day of the burial which is the 27th of March.
“What we had was a Father and Son relationship, A prophet to prophet relationship” said Bishop Otunsanya Festus Omomajemu (General Overseer The True Covenant Church Of God Worldwide).
When I started my ministry in Ikorodu almost over ten years now, he was the first person I went to as a father for counsel & support. He annoited me that night and I took off, And he has been a regular in our program ‘Covenant Festival’ apart from last year when I became a bishop. He is a very powerful man of God, A leader and a true prophet in the spirit who will be surely missed.
INN: At the wake keep you where apologising to the church planning committee, What actually transpired?
Bishop Festus: Yesterday I got a call from the church that we won’t do the wake keep anymore and go straight to the burial, But on speaking to God he told me that we must have the wake keep because this man is a general overseer, whether we are many or not in the church we need to have the Christian wake keep.
Today even Some of the church pastor initially refused for us to have it, but I insisted and after the burial they came back to appreciate us on how we coordinated the event, I just thank God for his wisdom upon us at this moment in time.
INN: What is your message to everyone in this times we are in?
Bishop Festus: We should obey the commandments of God, we should do the right thing so that we can enter into the kingdom of God. If you have any sins in your hand then take it off because Jesus Christ is coming very soon, Prophet Adeleke did not know that he was going to die, he just finished a 40 days fasting program, went to the mountain and died there, he never saw this coming, If death calls you today where are you going to? God called Moses and told him “you have suffered enough, look at where you are going but you will not get there”. We must live our lives like anything can happen right now, We can live this world at any minute. We should be prepared for the kingdom of God.
Prophetess Victoria Maliaka Jesu Head of Heaven is Real Bible Church Ikorodu and also the spoke person for the Inspirational Gospel Ambassadors Ministry (IGAM) expressed her shock in the demise of the late pastor Adeleke but describing a relief in the death knowing the prophet has gone to heaven. He told me that “there will be a shock wave of miracles in your crusade program at the end”, But I did not know that four hours after the crusade ended he gave up the ghost. He told me that I should not be wary when the hand of God starts coming upon my ministry.
He is like a father to me and guided me in my walk with God. And I always come to him for guidance and direction. He will be truly missed and i did a tribute song for him to keep him in my memory always.
“As IGAM we must come together and pray thoroughly for God to show us the next step since our Grand patron has passed on. We cannot just go ahead without a strong leader like pastor Adeleke Samson Asenowo again, he was there for us, now that he is no more, we must create time for extensive prayer to hear the voice of God concerning the next direction of IGAM.” said Prophet Malaika.
