Bishop Francis Wale Oke, President and founder of The Sword of The Spirit Ministries International, has revealed how he brought late Archbishop Benson Idahosa and Pastor Enoch Adeboye together.
Oke, who spoke at the 1st Memorial Lecture of Archbishop Benson Idahosa, Benson Idahosa University, said “to the glory of God, it was through my platform that Pastor Adeboye and Archbishop Idahosa came close.
“I had invited the two of them to minister at the annual Holy Ghost convention run by our ministry in Ibadan. That was how they met. Archbishop Idahosa was sitting side by side with Pastor Adeboye. They became very close and they maintained that relationship till Idahosa went to be with the Lord.”
Oke said he drew strength from these two servants of God, noting that the duo taught him a lot of things.
“I saw the grace of God upon the late Archbishop Benson Idahosa and Pastor Enoch Adeboye. I moved close to them and they taught me a lot of things.
“I saw in Pastor Adeboye the gift of the word and teaching while I learnt from Idahosa boldness and faith for evangelism. The two of them accommodated me and allowed me to flourish in my own area of calling,” he said.
