My first encounter with Bishop David Oyedepo - Dr. Paul Enenche

In May, during the 40th anniversary of Living Faith Church, in Otta, Ogun State, Dr. Paul Enenche narrated his first encounter with his father in the Lord, Bishop David Oyedepo.

"I am excited and delighted to be here tonight celebrating 40 years of impact, 40 years of generational trail blazing ministry. When God gives you a vision and He gives you direction and then opens you to revelations. He brings you into associations that will give you the relevant impartation that takes you to your destination. That is my story.

"Close to 30 years ago I came into contact with God’s servant through messages, through tapes and what I heard stirred my spirit. The first message I think I heard was ‘Unveiling the Realities of the Supernatural Realm’; my heart was stirred, “is there such a man? where is he? I continued listening to the message until one day I saw in the dream of the night, he poured oil on my head. I had never met him, we had never seen. I didn’t know how he looked like, but he anointed me in the dream

 

"Then after getting newly married, over 27 years ago, we heard that he was coming into town in the city of Jos where we were. We traced him to the Church then, the Living Faith Church and then graciously we were able to have an encounter with him and I shared with him what I saw in the dream; how I had listened to several tapes, messages that changed and impacted my life.

He said, “Okay, he is going to do that practically.”

"So he poured the oil practically in the physical and then that was the beginning of very, very great, unprecedented, unimaginable impact.

"Shortly after that, God sent us to the city of Abuja to start Ministry and while we were trying to just lay the foundation, he came to town; he passed by the site of Ministry where the foundation was been laid. I told him, “this is what is happening.”

"He poured oil on the ground and said, “building grow” and within 7 weeks, the building had its roof.

"My the first anniversary of our Church, that structure, that hall, that sanctuary was filled and we had 5 little canopies outside that were filled at Number 1, first anniversary of the Ministry.

Impact continued and then until the Glory Dome dedication. He broke the ground and then the building started.

When we had 10 days to the dedication of that building and he was coming to dedicate, we needed hundreds of millions, if the dedication was to hold and we had only 10 days. Our people said, “can we remove the amount in the reserved account?” which was not going to be enough to finish the construction.

I said, “No. God will bring the amount”

God brought over 300 Million within 10 days and then the building was dedicated to the glory of God. Today the impact of this Ministry by His mercies and true connection is global; we want to give God the praise.
