Today, I will be posting about my visit to where the popular Apostle Joseph Ayo Babalola received his calling at Ikeji Arakeji, Osun state.
There is no way one will talk about Christianity in Nigeria and Osun state will not be mentioned. For a fact, many popular men of God late or living either hail from Osun state or started their ministry in the state. These men of God share something in common when it comes to their religious activities; they all go to the mountain top to seek the face of God and they get their prayers answered.
This water over the years have heal many people. It was gathered that the water has no end or begin and it has never gone since 1928. He is one prophet that believes in power of prayer, it was said that, he made African to believe that they can pray directly to God and get answers without any sacrifice or worshipping idols. Prayer is one of his hobbies and in any town he found himself, he look for a wildness or mountain to prayer. This was how he moved to the mountain which he named Ori Oke Anu (Mountain of Mercy), after a while, he established a CAC church on it and his building is still here till date.
|This place in the photos he became the prophet of God in 1928 when God called him. It was while he was working as steamroller Ikeji in October 9th 1928 about 12.00 noon by the river Ariran that he heard a loud voice from above like the roar of thunder which called his name thrice saying “Joseph! Joseph!! Joseph!!! Leave this job you are doing; if not, this year you are going to be cut off from the earth.” Again On 11 October 1928, while trying to repair his machine, he heard an audible voice from the Lord to abandon the job and start preaching.|
|Babalola during his life time, was the one that prophecy and save the life of Lady/ Evang. (Dr.) Bola Are, who is today known all over the world. The water Babalola use to bath Mama Bola Are then was taking from Ile-Oluji, the present place where they cited Christ Apostolic Church, Oke Isegun, DCC headquarters.|
