Ooni of Ife honors Pastor Adeboye by offering him the highest seat in his Palace

By  | 

Pastor EA Adeboye recently visited the Palace of the Ooni of Ife, as the son of the soil, the Ooni of Ife offered Pastor Adeboye the highest and biggest sit in the parlour which is against the rule of the Oba.

Normally, the Oba sits on the highest chair, but this case was different.

The Ooni of Ife had this to say:

….”There is only one God which is our Creator…. HE has Representatives here on Earth and Pastor E.A Adeboye is one of them, so anytime you see them, Respect and honour them.”

    Sometimes we think we know everything about God as Christians, and we can predict Him, but just as many victims of d thief crucified with Jesus will be surprised to see him waiting for them in heaven (provided they even make it), because he acknowledged Jesus, not despise him like d second thief ….. we may be surprised d way God will handle the salvation of dis special Oni(!) who knows how to honour a man of God like this. Remember, d bible says we are saved by grace, not by works, lest anyone should boast. God said “l will call those who are not my people, my people…” (see Romans 9). Ade a pe lori re o,2ce. Oba to mo Jesu, ade a pe lori re o.(song)

    This amazing, Glory to Almighty God, who choose a humble king in Yoruba land who honor God and give honor to God representative on earth. That’s remind me how he rolled on the floor for Almighty God during the thanks giving of his throne. This is a good example

    General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor Enoch Adeboye sitting on the highest stool at the Ooni of IFE’s Palace.
    ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
    The man of God while on a courtesy visit to the palace last week was offered the seat by the Ooni of Ife himself which is against the tradition.
    ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
    According to the Ooni, there is none greater than God.
    Despite the protest and refusal of Pastor Adeboye, Oba Ogunwusi insisted, pointing out that Pastor Adeboye was representing God in his palace, hence deserved the greatest seat!!! The great Monarch took the lower seat.

    What rubbish!
    This is sacrilegious,
    How low would dis Ooni stoop to portray himself as being humble.
    Ridiculing d stool of Ooni b4 a mere pretentious Yahoo boy ( God of Man).
    I trust Iku baba yeye d Alaafin of Oyo empire & Yoruba land,
    Ooni is not a person but d entire Ife kingdom & beyond.
    Will Queen Elizabeth ridicule herself even 4 a pope?

    Oo infact I troway d respect I have 4 d king 4rm 2day.
