Africa is one of the continent of the world that God as choosen for his glory, and the presence of God is undeniably evident in this continent.
One of the most tangible nations in Africa is Nigeria, which some people believe it is the heart of Africa and also happens to be the most popular nation in Africa.
When God want to bless a village, town, cities, states, nations and continent; he raises men with extra-ordinary grace and capacity, this is evident in Nigeria, God as blessed us with so many fathers of faith that we can not have been better with our walk in God is they aren’t been there to put us through and shine light on our way, of a truth, the rate at which men press into the “God-life” is absolutely amazing and this as deliver so many kind of messages which on the longrun, centers on God and Christ Jesus our lord as the head of the church (the body).
Today by the grace of God i will be listing some men of great grace and servants of the living God that i have careful listen to and have been so blessed by their ministration and their ministry, we must realize that men build denomination but God always build “Nations” that is why it is of more important to God that after salvation everyone fully come into the fullness of grace and image of our lord Jesus, that the holyspirit is fully communicated to us to help us establish the kingdom of our father on earth and make Jesus reign in our territory.
The Grace and Wisdom of God as been made available unto us by various vessels of honor and grace and here i make a list of some of them; very importantly for anyone to partake of the grace working in the life of a man, you must believe in the man, you must receive him as the one sent from God, this is evidently shown in the
scriptures at “Hosea 12 : 13 – By a prophet was the children of Israel brought out of Egypt and by a prophet was he preserved”.
So we can see that the place of God’s servant over nations and territory is no joke, If the land must be delivered and the people must be set free, then the office of a prophet is called for.
Before we move further, i will not make this list without recognizing great men of faith that as transformed the body of christ and brought potency to Christianity in Nigeria but have gone to be with the lord, great men of blessed memory like;
Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola,
Archbishop Benson Idahosa,
Pa Josiah Olufemi Akindayomi,
Prophet Moses Orimolade Tunolase,
Apostle Timothy Oluwole Obadare.
And many more spiritual errors that God as raised in the body of christ in this nation, we acknowledge God’s grace at work in their lives and we celebrate them as we continue the glorious steward service of Christ Jesus in our generation.
