Why we organized 7 Prophetic Wednesdays…
The GDA meets the Prophet....
Why did you organize the 7 Prophetic Wednesdays since January 4?
Prophet Enoch Jolaolu Ogunniran leading the Service
This is not the first time we are organizing this type of prayer program for the beginning of the year. It is a spiritual program organized for the benefit of people, to enable them come closer to God and tell God what they want for that particular year and how they want to have rapport with God. Let me also tell you that it is not our intention to do the program, it is the spirit of the Lord that instructed us to organize the program for those who need God’s intervention in their own lives. So, we can categorically say it is a spirit designed event, strictly for deliverance purpose. We are vessels in His hand.
Leader Adekoya leads Prayer during the service
Looking at the present trend in Nigeria, you will see that we are in a season of recession and depression. People are not happy and so many things are wrong with the economy. As the man in the vineyard, how do you think people can survive a time like this?
The GDA with CCC, Elyon Cathedral Shepherd-In-Charge, Prophet Enoch Jolaolu Ogunniran
Yeah, I think it is a pleasure meeting you people (Asabeafrika). I have been looking for an opportunity like this, to have some rapport with Nigerians. It is a very, very disappointing situation to see a nation that God owns, a blessed country like Nigeria that has every resources inside her soil and yet we suffering great lack. It is simply because we are far away from God. We Nigerians are far away from God.
The CCC, Elyon Cathedral Choir in Action
The only thing we can do now is to move closer to God like what 1st Chronicle 15 verse 10 to the end told us, that if we move closer to Him, that He is ready to save us in all our endeavors. We must get closer to God. That is what we need at a time like this.
President Muhammadu Buhari....'Is he the Messiah?' Prophet Ogunniran thinks otherwise

If you are chanced to meet President Muhammadu Buhari or Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, what would be your advice to them?
Acting President Yemi Osinbajo....Prophet Ogunniran says God put people like him there to punish Nigerians
My dear brother, what I will tell you, is that the fault is not from Buhari neither is it from Osinbajo. It is from God.
Prophet Ogunniran to Asabeafrika...'Church is now all about money and not eternity'
How the Church messed up…
Pastor Adeboye & Bishop Oyedepo....Is there any truth they can earn from Prophet Ogunniran and few other moralists?
How do you mean, sir?
What I mean is that the two leaders have no fault because God has not even transacted any business with Nigeria again. God is angry with us. He is very angry with us. That is why He gave us leaders who don’t have the skill or charisma to take us to the promise land. He is the one who directed them to be there simply because we are far away from Him. Unless we come back to God; then, God will take possession and everything will be in order.
Prophet Enoch Jolaolu Ogunniran to Asabeafrika...'The Church of God has messed up things in Nigeria'
What we are passing through now, America was equally in the same situation through centuries. They passed through this same challenge but when they called unto God, He delivered them. Anytime Nigeria returns to God in fair conscience, God will deliver us. Go to Christian kingdom today, the biggest crimes in Nigeria today; when you count them one by one, the Christian kingdom has about 75%.
Pastor Tunde Bakare of Latter Rain Assembly....Frowns at Church running with capitalist intention

You mean the Church?
Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye....His Church runs a school that is out of rich of children of ordinary members
Yes, the Church commits about 75% of societal crimes today in Nigeria, so what are we talking about. The Bible didn’t lie by saying judgment will start from the house of God, that is the church. The church is deeply enmeshed in a very big mess. Most of the iniquities we talk about are now committed in the church.
Bishop David Oyedepo....Runs Church with capitalist intention?
It brings me to the question of Pentecostal Churches who uses free offerings to establish schools and over bill the masses to pay school fees of their wads. Is that not part of this humanitarian crime?
Male Congregants praised God in Songs and Prayer
That is what I am saying because they have cut some people off their education system. So, if I don’t have millions now, I cannot send my children to school; and I am in your church. You are preaching eternity to me and you that you are preaching eternity to me; you are not even close to it. You are a red tape capitalist. It is only when we come back to God in fair conscience that peace will reign in Nigeria.
Female Congregants praised God in Worship & Prayer
What did you see to the recent controversial Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria edict to regulate the finances of churches? Do you think we need the policy for the transparency of the church?
Shepherd-In-Charge, CCC, Elyon Cathedral, Prophet Enoch Jolaolu Ogunniran taking a lead of the service
It cannot work. It cannot work.
I mean, the rules specified a term of 20 years for church leaders and mandated the church to open her books for scrutiny?
That policy cannot work. 
Representative of Evangelist Ebenezer Obey, Pastor Abiodun Awinle commands powerful prayer points during the service 
Some churches are not even registered. They just started one day and nobody questioned them. Why? Because they are Nigerians; even a foreigner is a pastor in our country today, and he has no working permit; he has no permit to stay in our country and we are saying ‘we have government’. So, it cannot work. I cannot buy something of N20 and you come and tell me that you have a Price Control Policy, so I should sell it for N10. No way. It is not done. It cannot work. Let us pray to God, to come down and stabilize this country for us.
Prophet Lekan Johnson leading a prayer session while Assistant Shepherd, Superior Evangelist Akinkuotu Adewale directs from behind
We have mineral resources, far, far richer resources to make us richer than any country in the world. In fact, we are richer than America. Where America stands today, if Nigeria is truly in God’s hands, we will surpass their success. That is the truth. We would surpass them far. In the good olden days, an American Dollar was 70 Nigerian Kobo to a Dollar. So, how did we get to a rise of over N500 today? What happened to our innovation? What happened to our ingenuity? What happened to creativity? How did we get here?

Who do you think should take the blame, the church, the political class, or the masses?
The Choir of CCC, Elyon Parish brought the heavenly hosts down with their craft
Everybody. In fact, I will not blame the so called politicians. I am blaming the church leaders. The church leaders are corrupt. When they are eating under a particular government, that government is good. But the moment the source of food is gone, then, the government is not good again. They will preach against the government. That is just it. So, the church is to be blamed in all fairness. The church has a big role to play in terms of moderating the culture of both the government and the people.
Female Congregants blessed God with their worship
How God called me…

How did you get your calling?
That question is a wonderful question. It is a long story.
Evangelist Adele Olamilekan aka Beula ministers in songs of worship
I think you can tell us so that people can learn from you?
I was a tout. I started my life as a tout.
So, how did a tout became a church leader?
Women from other denomination stormed the CCC, Elyon Parish event
I dropped from high school, it is not that I didn’t see someone to sponsor me but I dropped out of school and started roaming about. The way I came into the vineyard, I can’t explain till date. It is a wonderful story of my life. I think God had a hand in it.

Were you from a polygamous family?
Female Congregants praying to God at the event
My father had problems with child bearing. I supposed to be the last child if my dad was lucky enough to start rearing kids early in life. He married a woman and for 23 years, there was no issue. After they departed and the woman married another man, she became pregnant.
Some male congregants asking God for their own blessing
Maybe your dad and the woman are not meant for each other?
No, that is not the case. I can’t really call it destiny. I think it is family problem. Yeah, my father actually came from a polygamous home, brilliant and enterprising. He didn’t attend any school but he was a very brilliant person. He was brilliant, social and dynamic. In fact, I am privileged to be his son. I am happy he is my father.
You are from which state?
Pastor Abiodun Awinle from Decross Ministries ministering at the event
I am from Osun state. From a town called Ada under Boripe Local Government Area, near Iragbiji. In fact, family had to appeal to my mother to marry my dad. They wanted to see if my dad was actually suffering from an ailment. And immediately they married each other, she conceived and I was born. They brought me into the world and because they pampered me, I became spoilt.
CEO, Adesam Videos Ltd, Mr. Samson Adewale at the event
I had the temperament to do anything I like and nobody challenges me. I became a spoilt child and from there I graduated into something else because I was over pampered. But how I became a Celestial church member, I cannot say till now. Although, my father told me that when he and mum were searching for fruit of the womb, they told him that he would bear children. But his first child will be a prophet. I didn’t come from a Christian home.
Some Fruits laid for blessing and sanctification by members
Oh, you came from a Muslim home?
Never. I hail from a pagan family, a stark pagan home. They worship Ogun, the god of iron. I later got a baptismal name, Enoch. My name is Jolaolu, the one given me at birth. But I gave myself Enoch when I baptized into Christianity. Along the line, I became a shepherd. I cannot explain how I became a member of this church. In fact, this is my 31 years as a member of the Celestial Church of Christ and a shepherded. By this July, I will be 59 years. I was under 20 years when I became a member of Celestial Church.
Prophet Enoch Jolaolu Ogunniran with Celebrity Blogger, Gbenga Dan Asabe
How were you converted?
They brought Celestial Church of Christ to my town. And they announced at the time that ‘if you worship with us, we will give you rice, we will give you tea and so many things’. And in those days, when you want to have the privilege of eating rice, you must wait for festive seasons to get to eat rice and stew. It is either during Ileya or Christmas festival. And now, you are told that ‘if you can come to this church, you will have the luxury of eating rice’. Oh, no, I just jumped at the offer (Laughter). Then, I got into the church and I got to learn that there were prophets and prophetesses. The way they behave I didn’t like.
Representative of Evangelist Obey, Pastor Abiodun Awinle commanding the Holy Spirit to heal at the 6th edition of the 7 Prophetic Wednesdays inside the church cathedral
I hated them so much that I decided to be wicked to a prophet one day. The Prophet was in the spirit and was rolling towards me, so, I brought out a razor blade and I was about to cut him with it. As he was rolling near me, I had prepared for the action; I was going to cut him. Immediately he neared me, I lost composure and didn’t know where I was again. I lost my memory straight away.

So, you were arrested by the Holy Spirit?
Absolutely! I was arrested for 21 days. And you know what? My father came down to the church and fought them, threatening to deal with them, that they should release his son to him. In fact on that matter, for ten years, I and my father didn’t agree. He is now late. But we fought for good ten years because I joined Celestial Church of Christ. Don’t forget I told you that my father was a pagan. So, there was no way he was going to be happy with my joining Celestial Church of Christ. But glory be to God Almighty, today, in that family, God uphold me as a shining star. Again, God also used me as a poster of grace, to make my father’s family to know that he has a surviving son in his life time. So, God used me to promote the family and that was a rare thing for my father’s legacy.
Prophet Ogunniran to Asabeafrika....'My conversion to Celestial annoyed my Dad but today, i am the shining star of his family'
What about your wife?
Yes, I met my wife here in Celestial Church of Christ. She has been very, very supportive. She is a retired Custom officer.
How I got N7million Naira Car gift…

Why is your parish, CCC Elyon Cathedral so unique, here, there are prophets and a good relationship between the Levites and the church leadership?
The Car Gift for Prophet Enoch Jolaolu Ogunniran of CCC, Elyon Cathedral
That is God’s mystery because I cannot explain. If people come to your church and they don’t see the hand of God, they won’t come again. This program (7 Prophetic Wednesdays) is 15 years old. We have been organizing the program in the last 15 years and God has been attaching signs and wonders to the program. It has been consistent, we don’t fail and like I said miracles upon miracles has always accompanied the program; I mean great signs and wonders. In fact, yesterday, somebody just drove into this compound and gave me a Honda Pilot car worth N7 Million. I was totally dazed.

You mean someone came in here to give you a Honda Pilot car just like that?
The GDA congratulates the Man of God @ the Steering
Yesterday evening around 8pm; In fact, I only knew the man this year and I prayed for him and God answered his prayers.  After my prayer, he left only for him to return yesterday and say ‘Daddy, thank God for my life, I did this, I achieved that, this is the key’ and by the time I stepped out, there was a car standing for me. I was dazed. I think this is just the accomplishment of God’s covenant with this ministry. I think it is also a re-assurance of my call. I feel more committed because I was never expecting this miracle.
