Archbishop Benson Idahosa raised the dead like drinking coke.. He was in America when they sent a message that his mother was dead.
He said; my mother can’t die because God did not tell me. The last time I checked in my spirit, my mother was well. If God must take her, He has to tell me. Put her on my bed, when I return, I will wake her.
They asked him; When are you coming back? He said; 10 days time. They told him, she will smell. He insisted they should put her on his bed. If she smell, it’s my room. PUT HER THERE!
The first miracle happened for 10days, The body did not smell. The colour of the mother changed from black to ash, totally dead for 10days..
Archbishop Benson Idahosa however said; He would not coming back until he finished his crusade. When he finished his crusade, he landed in Benin airport, and he said; take me home.
They took him home… when he entered his room, he said; mama, I’m back, stand up and give me water to drink. Mama said; my son, welcome…
Being a Man of God is beyond having Anointing. Men of God are men of Authority. Men of God are like Senators…
It takes authority to legislate over a territory.
It takes Authority to Colonize a territory and bring it under the Lordship of Jesus
Men of God are mortal men like us who’ve been granted access to some divine secret Codes…
When things are not going well in their territory they know what to do… they know how to utter the laws of nature, and sometimes shut the heavens just to bring their territory back to order.
Elijah didn’t say: “If I be a prophet of God…” he knew that there were many prophets in Israel who were Voiceless…
instead he said;
2 Kings 1:10 “And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven…”
It will take great Sacrifice to attain to the Status of a Man of God…
Apostle Ayo Babalola once summoned all the witches in his territory to meet him at a certain tree by 2 A.M for an open challenge if they think they have power… But non of them showed up.
This was a man who could embark on 40 days dry fast successfully without any health challenge.
Archbishop Benson Idahosa was born in a land where there’s a high level of witchcraft activities… But he was mightily used by God to subdue them.
At a point witches and wizards wanted to hold an international conference at Benin city where he stays… But he single handedly stopped the meeting.
These were men who were jealous for God… they can go extra mile to defend the Gospel of the Kingdom..
During the military regime, there was an Order from General Buhari that there should be no open crusade…
The only man of God who could withstand that order and still went ahead and held crusades was Archbishop Benson Idahosa.
The Church in Nigeria lost her voice after the death of the Archbishop.
We have a lot of Anointed men in Nigeria, but the Church is yet to have a Voice… Of course there were many prophets in Israel in his days, but Elijah chose to be a Voice to his Generation.
“If I be a Man of God… Let Fire Come…”
Why not pray and say; “Lord, make me a voice to my Generation…”
