Primate Ayodele: Changing the form of healing and the prophetic

It would be stating the obvious that churches today are changing the narrative of what it really means to be the Body of Christ.Even with unproven claim that places of worship are getting rich off their congregation, true Christians can be proud of a House of God like INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church being shepherded by servant of God, Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, for instance.

Ayodele runs INRI as a place of worship with a difference because he does care primarily about giving as much as he cares about preaching the Word.

At the core of the Gospel is good news, he would say; good news of hope, healing and salvation for all, adding that being a God’s servant is essentially about love, and message, not just in words but also in deeds.

Because Ayodele’s standard is premised on the fact that God wants to love the world through His servants and the world needs to experience God’s love through them, the Ekiti State born cleric has always made love his propelling force through his ministry’s charity segment with a goal to care for the less privileged like widows, orphaned kids, widowers and indigent students.

“Christianity is more than claiming to be saved or going around preaching the Word,” Primate Ayodele noted as he doled out various food items and cash gift to Muslims at the start of the 2019 Ramadan fasting, “it is also about revealing the true nature of God in how we relate to others, particularly the less privileged. Hence, it is important that we often reach out in any way that we can.”

Primate Ayodele’s fruit bearing deliverance power, and the testimonies that go with it, is the evidence of the wonder-working power of God, as those whose lives are restored take turns amidst cheers to narrate their encounter with divine healing and the restorative power of God at open air crusades organized by the INRI Ministry, including during church services.

A recent case was that of a man named Abdulateef Bello from Ilorin who received permanent healing at INRI after nursing stomach pain for 20 years.

Lateef’s miraculous deliverance, among others’, happened at the ministry’s April prayer meeting where Ayodele had released prophetic blessings and healing through INRI anointed water.

Primate Ayodele, no doubt, is an anointed God’s servant. He is endowed with the gift of prophecy and has always delivered on the purpose of prophecy. In his words, prophecy is there to save mankind from destruction and to protect from deception. “The principal reason is redemptive,” Ayodele situates in support of prophetic messages released through him by God.

“Prophecy is not meant to scare us,” declares the cleric, adding that, “our personal prophecy will mean a lot more to us if we know what prophecy is, how it works and if we prepare our heart to receive it, evaluate it, and act on it.”
