Why Do Bishop Oyedepo wears White Suit often ?

By  | 

It was a very hilarious moment with one of my friends today, he knows i so much love Bishop with all my heart, so whenever he comes around, he will always talk one thing or the other about him, but today was a lot more different, as he asked me a very funny question, guess what he said?

He said;

I have always seen 85% of Papa’s Picture in White suits, both on Sunday and some ministration outside the church, why does he wears white suit and red tie so often?

I had to laugh… for a while, before i proceed to answer his question, because it was indeed a funny question.

Well, My response was a lot more simple, even though, I don’t know what orchestrate the decision, but i can guess and i perceive i am a little bit close to the answer.

See some of Papa’s Sessions in White Suit and Red Tie Below;


Papa is a Public figure and he is a well known minister of God, celebrated by many across the nations of the earth but at the same time, he is a prophet and he wants to impact people with the truth of GOD’s word and the mandate that was given to him, so in the bid not to get the audience too distracted, he had to put on white Suit, if he goes on designers and too flashy color stuffs, some people or most people will rather be mindful of pictures and stuffs like that and they will miss out of what he carries and what he has to offer, they will keep celebrating him.

Also, Papa is a blessed man, as in, he is a wealthy man, well known for the wealth and prosperity mandate, but at the same time, he is a priest, and he is a prophet unto nations, so the white suit and red tie thing is a lot more common with him, so his dress won’t be much of a distraction or draw unnecessary attention to him.

I must also say here, Papa Oyedepo is man of Understanding, i mean deep understanding and revelation of God’s word and Truth, White stands for Truth and Purity…. Purity is not an option for priest, it is actually their lifestyle, Purity is a state of existence for the saints of God, so it connotes Purity also, sanctification, and as a priest, it is a very good thing that he appears in White.

Finally, when Papa was coming up with serious passion for God and God’s kingdom, he as often time shares with us, how that, he had no time to go and buy clothing, he just sends someone to buy them, so papa right from time as not been a fashion freak really, he is just simple with his out look and now that God as blessed him greatly, he looks his best, though consistent, but still pretty good enough for a priest.

So, that’s my own view about it, what about you?

What do you think or say ?

    You are right. Another reason is this:
    If Papa were to start selecting what to wear anytime he’s up for a ministration, he would end up being late because there are too many clothes esp suits to choose from. So to avoid such scenario, he always appears on white suit.

    I have heard Papa say, he prefers white suits because white is a colour that fades to white.
    It was hilarious though.

    Papa was brought up in ilorin in the home of a C&S prophet, he understands the deep meaning of the white being put on and the power behind it, like most have said its purity and he is a prophet, not just by mere name calling like most men of God give themselves, but a truly ordained prophet.

    Well said my brother .the question is truly a funny one .if you ask why he’s wearing white firstly you should ask what this color signifies .white stands for purity peace and cleanliness and if that person reads he’s bible properly cleanliness is next to Godliness and for the red that red tells all about what the ministry carried and the mandate of the ministry is to librate man and woman from the hands of Stan and you should know such assignment requires strength to confront the devil passion to save souls you must represent danger to the kingdom of darkness ,must be determined and must have love for Christ and that’s what the red stands to demonstrate and for those who allows Satan to turn them away from the wave of revival on planet earth and the end time and be judging the gospel and prophet I pity you ..and I pray for Gods mercy upon all of you .

    Why do people get carried away by things that are so insignificant, what has the color of the dress, man of God is wearing got to do with the anointing or the massage he preaches? people should learn to focus on things above not beneath, focus on kingdom engagement such as wining souls to Christ and many more not thinking of why the man of God always put on White all the and God will give you reason to pick your own favorable color. I pray the person that asked this question is able to see those comment it will help his life. thank you

    My own response to this is simple white and red has to do with the Church log you can clearly see it there therefore papa wearing often white and red he is aligning himself with his calling ,because your log is a summerary of your message.

    White is for purity and Holiness which is the foundation for power. The power of God on my father,the Bishop is enormous and the testimonies in his ministry attest to this. To touch him alone is to contact uncommon blessings upon your life. Secondly the red colour which is his tie connote the precious blood of Jesus serving has a shield of defence. My father, the Bishop is dangerously armed from heaven as the blood keep speaking passover to all evil. My father is a man of light. A man with deep understanding, which reflect even in his dress code. I thank u sir,my father Bishop David One deposit.

    The reason he wears white suit is simple:
    -He is too conscious of his time as scare resource;
    -he does not want to ‘waste time and brain power’ in selecting what to wear every now and then.

    This is not only applicable to suit, even the native attires he wears are also white.

    A consistent and well focused Prophet of the Most High God whose passionate passion is to preach to the lost souls so that they may be saved and delivered from mental slavery.That should be ours too. Clothes or no clothes, the results are very obvious. Praise God.
