The Apostolic Mantle Over Nigeria

The issue of the apostolic mantle over the nation is on my mind again. At the Revival Altar this morning (10-10-14), the Lord brought it up.

I recall what He caused me to write and publish in 2011 on this subject.

“By the time Bishop Idahosa went to be with the Lord in 1998, the ministers he had raised did not fully catch the (kingdom) vision which he stood for. They were instead content to build their individual ministries and empires… Let me tell you, God’s plan was for Bishop Idahosa to train another minister who would receive a double portion of his mantle, to make ready a people who would be tools in the end time move of God scheduled to start in Nigeria.

This void in the apostolic space has been responsible for the chaos that we have witnessed in the Nigerian Church that has led to the increase of false prophets and fraudulent ministries. Satan has been stealing the spiritual gifting that God intended for the Nigerian Church because the father figure that used to challenge and stand against him has gone to be with the Lord.

One man that has benefitted from the spiritual void is a prominent false prophet in Nigeria (known all over the world) who has paid the highest price to Satan to appropriate the apostolic mantle meant to serve the Lord’s purpose. He is known all over the world as the authentic Nigerian apostle and unfortunately his programs are aired by Christian stations like TBN giving him much prominence.” (Pg.204-205 ‘In the Master’s Presence,’2011).

Could it be that the table is about to turn? Is the time up for those who have been stealing the mantle? Is God finally visiting in judgment to clear the space and make room for Himself?

I came by the Spirit (Lk.2:27) into the Revival Altar this afternoon and the Lord brought me back to the word He gave me on 4th July 2010 that was circulated on my list.


“2011 to 2018 will be the most significant years Nigeria has ever known as a nation.

1.      Some things that has not been possible in the past seventy years will become possible because heaven will start pushing its agenda (for Nigeria).

2.      The judgment arm of God will come down heavily starting from the Churches. False ministries like … (names withheld) and his synagogue will see their doom. They will try to change the time by making many blood sacrifices. Christians should stand in the gap for his Church members that he may try to offer to save himself. That judgment arm will also sweep across churches that have become like prisons for the people of God – scandals, break-ups and quarrels. When it starts, just know that My hands are moving to bring order and revival.

3.      In politics, Jonathan is the man I have chosen on a temporary basis to prepare the throne for the David – a man that I am raising and will put My Spirit upon him  to move Nigeria forward. Pray the following prayers for Jonathan…” Revival Altar, 4 -7-10.

Questions were in my heart as I read the hand-written word from my old 2009/ 2010 diary. Why was the Lord bringing this word back to me in such dramatic manner? Why was it coming back in this season that the Lord asked me to compass His altar and bring forth High Praises (Ps.26:6-7)?  Why, why why/

Whereupon the Lord entered into this conversation with me:

Rv.22:7: “Son, I am bringing you back to this word because of the things that are about to unfold in your nation. I told you that things will happen in cycles – cycles of seven (the number of eternity) and cycles of four, which is the number for the earth. 2014 is the end of one cycle counting from 2011. 2015 will be the beginning of another cycle and will be a year for the delivery of heavens agenda for your nation. There will be clashes and battles and swords and daggers but I will be in the midst of it.

Can I fight a battle without first setting My house in order? I am disrobing false priests who are wearing my name in deceit and crashing Babylon and making a way for people to see Me for who I am. For Me to do this effectively, I must restore to the Nigerian Church the two ministries that will lead My Church to the mountain (The ministry of Apostles and Prophets). These seeming disasters must be seen for what they are – a deliberate act of redemption and mercy to save those who are appointed to die by virtue of their alliance with wolves in sheep’s clothing.”


The apostolic ministry was birthed in Nigeria by two fathers that God raised as pillars to carry the spiritual DNA for the true apostolic ministry in Nigeria.

In the first place is Pa Elton, a British missionary that God sent to Nigeria in 1937 with a clear mandate to raise a new leadership for the Church.

Secondly, was Joseph Ayo Babalola, the revivalist and founder of the CAC Churches: Both men were contemporaries so to say. God brought them at the same time, His purpose being that Pa Elton would supply what Babalola lacked in depth of the word and training that will enable him complete his assignment.

Babalola carried the raw DNA of an authentic African apostle whom God equipped to carry the power in raw form that would address the darkness in Africa (witchcraft, idolatry and occultism). Remember that he was a terror to witches and occult people trembled and came out of their close places at the mere mention of his name.

Both men saw visions of God’s purpose for Nigeria and prophesied concerning it and some of their prophecies are documented with many already fulfilled.

Let us say that these were the first generation of the apostolic ministry in Nigeria.

In the second generation, God combined these two branches in one man, the fearless Benson Idahosa whom He raised to prepare the generation that will carry the burden of fulfilling the Nigerian prophecy.

I do not believe that Bishop Idahosa completed his Assignment before passing on. I believe that his disconnection from Pa Elton affected his ministry and caused a delay in God’s program for Nigeria. One of the things that happened to Bishop Idahosa was his exposure to American Pentecostalism with its tint towards materialism, self-assertion and marketing.

Could it be that God withdrew him from the scene at his best as a means of saving him and also safeguarding his program because Bishop Idahosa was a very influential man?

Somebody who was close to Pa Elton opined that the Bishop’s exposure to American Pentecostalism was the real thing that broke Pa Elton’s heart, (though he was said to have died of a heart attack).

Bear in mind that this is not intended as a criticism or anything of that sort (I am not even qualified to do that). I am just expressing my thoughts as a prelude to getting into something that will be beneficial to the Church in the end. I also assure you that I did not initiate this conversation. The Lord did and I believe for a purpose.


Babalola’s apostolic ministry carried the raw DNA of an authentic African apostle. God raised a man for him by the name of Orekoya, and gave him the prophetic mantle that would have brought balance and completion to Babalola’s ministry.

My research shows that maybe due to immaturity and a deficit in training, Orekoya did not quite see himself as Babalola’s spiritual son. His independence tilted towards rebellion and he died untimely, without fulfilling his prophetic ministry though he showed the signs of a mighty prophetic vessel. (He raised the dead and performed more than 5000 miracles of healing and various demonstrations of power).



I was brought into the visions of God and divine sentences and strategies were written in my heart. I see God parting Idahosa’s mantle over the nation into three and giving it to three vessels that the Lord has been preparing to drive His Isaiah 19 vision for Africa’s rebirth. Two of these apostolic vessels are already functioning in their office but between 2015 and 2017, the Lord will increase them in influence and their ministry will shake nations and kingdoms. I see the Lord putting a robe upon them and commanding them as follows:

To Apostle 1, the Lord says: “receive fire from the altar and go towards the East. I give you Eastern lands including the East (up to South East) of Nigeria, the Middle East and eastern lands including Australia and China. I see this vessel having influence in lands bordered by the biblical rivers (Gen.2:10-14) and more particularly the Indian Ocean.

To apostle 2, the Lord says. “Wear this robe in My name and go towards the West including the West of Nigeria and Western nations including Europe and America. There is much work in the West but I am giving you what it takes to recover what can be recovered from western lands because the people have set their heart on their own destruction. My mercy constrains Me to reach out to them because of the sacrifice of their fathers.”

The third part of the apostolic mantle will be conferred later as the vessel who will wear it is not yet ready. Could it be that he is waiting to manifest in 2018, after the Lord has finished passing through the nation in judgment? I see him as Solomon, David’s son the foundation for whose estate was laid solidly by the father David.

1 Furthermore David the king said unto all the congregation, Solomon my son, whom alone God hath chosen, is yet young and tender, and the work is great: for the palace is not for man, but for the LORD God. 2 Now I have prepared with all my might for the house of my God the gold for things to be made of gold, and the silver for things of silver, and the brass for things of brass, the iron for things of iron, and wood for things of wood; onyx stones, and stones to be set, glistering stones, and of divers colours, and all manner of precious stones, and marble stones in abundance.(See 1Chr.29:1-2)

I see the first two apostles that the Lord is releasing into the fullness of their ministries as Samuels and Mordecais that the Lord will use as fathers to relay a solid foundation for the apostolic and prophetic ministry in Nigeria. This is important for God because the Lord will use the Nigerian Church to re-set the agenda for the universal Church and change the narrative and conversation.


Rv.22:7 Continuing;

“The prophetic mantle of Nigeria is as new wine. The time I have to accomplish My work is too short to raise a vessel that can carry this mantle with every ingredient I have used in brewing it without self-destruction.

Therefore I am parting the mantle into twelve pieces of different textures to accomplish My work in Nigeria. Between 2015 and 2018, I will raise Me twelve prophets from your nation that I will give My prophetic garment (Dt.18:18-19). I will pattern them after My throne, and three will be raised on the East, on the South, on the West and in the North (Rv.4:1-11; Num.10:5-28). They will be My Prophetic Company (2Kngs.2:5a) in Nigeria, twelve in number that I will use to shake the kingdom of darkness in Nigeria and beyond.

Camp Judah (Num10:5, 14) will lead the pack and will begin to manifest and come into their office as from 2015.

These prophetic company will function like the two witnesses:

3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.2  4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. 5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.” (Rv.11:3-5)


The vision I gave to son …. (a prophetic vessel) is a pointer to these times. It is not a vision of a distant time. I am revealing what I will do in your lifetime and the time has come for its fulfillment.

That is part of My answer to the chaos and disorder in your nation and Africa. That is what must happen for Africa to manifest.

Think it. Pray it, Believe it and pay the price for its fulfillment starting from this year.”


I believe that God has raised other apostles in Nigeria with a view to releasing Idahosa’s mantle for the work that is before us as a nation but denominationalism did not allow them to come into fullness of their offices. Those that the Lord is raising for this company must overcome denominationalism with its divisions and wars so that what the Lord means to be a blessing will not bring death.

Quoting Ayeni O. S.:
"Denominationalism" is a big challenge. In Sokoto now, you can't go to some churches's gate to share handbills that will bring about Kingdom focus and promote unity among ourself. Leaders will hijack such or drive away the distributors because they feel that such gathering will distract their members. Does Christ have two kingdoms? Has some churches become prison where the jailer dictate what the prisoners do. If you are a TRUE servant of God, your mission should be to raise people for God and not imprison people for selfish purpose.

Dear Sir, with all due respect, i will like to differ in opinion with you/your statement about Christ having two kingdoms and sharing handbills in front of another Church "in Sokoto". Brethren, we are to win souls for Christ, new souls i mean, and not to recycle Christian that are already in Church, no matter the name of the Church or the denomination in question. Our Churches have different modus operandi and a such it is very necessary for one to keep his flock, or members of his church to be attentive and focused lest distraction and distortion enter into the Church.

You seem to have judged yourself righteous in your own eyes without an evil intention. But you forget that it is the same way false preachers and their members go about as wolves in sheep clothing looking for different church members and groups to deceive and lure them into a false belief. Why not rather go to the Lost Sheep and seek them out than going after another man's field or vineyard.

If in is a non-denominatio nal gathering or event you are organizing, then wisdom demands that you approach the church leaders, intimate and inform them and seek for their consent so that their members can attend the program and everyone will be blessed than trying to lure church members into another church in the name of sharing handbills. The handbills who have better been shared at the market place, along the streets, in schools, and all other public places than right in front of another church and we gladly come to the public forum on the internet like this to share our shame, yet we call ourselves Christians. Can't you even see the divide you are creating already.

Christ has called us to evangelize, disciple people and make them heaven bound and not to recycle them from one church to another. If after much stay in a particular denomination and some people feel they need more depth in Word & Worship, then they can freely migrate on their own. If a Church restricts you from sharing your handbills in front of the gate, do they also restrict their members from watching all the many Christian channels on Cable TV...? so you can as well go to the Radio/TV station an announce your forth coming program and everybody will be invited. Lets stop putting the cart before the horse, and let us find wisdom use at all times as we continue to work in the Lord's Vineyard and as we face our field of work. God bless you.
