Interesting Facts About Bishop Oyedepo’s Marriage You Should Know:

1. He met her at a Motor Park

2. She was a university student – GREAT IFE while he was only a Polytechnic student in Kwarapoly (Remember the discrimination) – she could have snubbed him – but she responded.

3. His friends complained that he was carrying Christianity too zealously as if he was the only Christian – she became zealous too.

4. He took her to church in 1976 and made her sign an agreement (SAILING UNDER SEALED ORDERS) to marry and follow him whether he becomes blind, lame or handicapped… she signed.

5. Just before he married her, he told her God had sent him to LIBERATE THE WORLD (while he was still hopping between jobs) and went on to resign his job; his elder brother lambasted him, she stood by him.

6. He told her God had shown him the key to prosperity – she believed.

7. He told her they would build a 50,000 capacity tent and preach the gospel from private jets-she believed her dreamer lover.

8. He was too ‘buoyant’ to afford a hotel room on his wedding eve, he slept in his rickety Volkswagen Beetle – she married him.

9. During a moment of insane faith, he ordered a mad man to be put in his car alone with her while she was pregnant; she remained.

10. She saw she was dripping blood while pregnant and explained to him that she had a miscarriage, he shouted “It CANNOT Happen, Can I have my food please” – she served him food.

11. She just had their first baby and there was no food or money at home. He refused to borrow or ask or take church money and they were drinking/eating “CERELAC Baby food’ for 3 days – she ate with him.

12. She came to church one day and saw him so excited with few members while waiting for service to start; he explained to her that service was actually over – she laughed.

13. People kept praying for her and her husband as they seemed to be crazy and needed deliverance-she kept faith.

14. He announced a new Bible school and she knew there was no facility; she asked him and he replied “Is it your school”? She kept quiet. IT DOESN’T END THERE!

15. She didn’t know they were going to be flying in customized jets round the world.

16. She didn’t know he will pastor and she, co-pastor the largest church auditorium in the world.

17. She didn’t know he will be a father to millions all over the world.

18. She didn’t know he will be hosted by Presidents and Heads of States of nations.

19. She didn’t know he will be a Chancellor and Pioneer of one of the best Private-owned Universities in the world…..and six others.

20. She woke up one day on her sick bed in the USA and unexpectedly saw her hubby who had flown in quietly from Nigeria and had refused to wake her up….. he was kneeling on the floor by her legs and crying ‘Lord, heal her and prove that you sent me”- She got healed miraculously… …TWICE!. She didn’t know. #All she saw was a Man with A BIG GOD inside him. Her name is “FAITH”!

It is sad to see that many ladies of these days can’t stand by a man with purpose and vision like this today. Most ladies want a man that has ‘arrived’ but forget that most men that walk with God need to grow in Him even as they (The ladies) grow with him (The husband).

Some of our mothers married our fathers when they had nothing to their names and together they grew to where they got to. Sadly, some of those parents will not accept a spouse that doesn’t have much to his or her name when their child wants to be joined with one. Who upturned our values? Who said you need to ‘arrive’ before taking a helping hand and obtaining blessings from God?

Hey, marriage is not an achievement like one of your degrees or acquisition like a car or landed property. Some marriages bring the completeness a man or woman needs. Let’s get our priorities right. Thanks mama Oyedepo for not forming #Tushgirl now we all see the #TushQueen you have become to that king – Bishop David Oyedepo.

    Funny enough, som ladies or women helped som men to arrive, only fo dem to discover dat she is not beautiful or young enough to befit d arrival. She will b thrown to the bq while another woman occupy the main building an enjoy d arrival. God in heaven has a lot to judge. Papa and mama wil grow old, i c dem cross hundred years cos dey hav peace. Love u mama an papa.

      Angela! Exactly oo, I’m a witness 2dat… Dated him for 4yrs, started from a single room wif nothing in it. All those while I was a student of a state university, my food stuff 4rm home and pocket money is wot we lived on coz his income was so little, his apartment is in the nxt town to mine though he was a graduate by then, so I advised him to start a fish pond bizz so as to not depend always on his lil’ income, gradually his business started booming and his salary increased, he moved to a room & pallour self con, tins were still going on fine btw us wia I still make his b/fast, drop it on my way to class early as 7am and @9t, he comes to eat supper @ my place coz his kind of person doesn’t eat outside. 4rm dia, he got a piece of land den started building a 6 bedroom modern aus. He got a car alongside, that’s wia prob started wia u say all manner of galz in his car, u evn wonder maybe he goes to pick them 4rm outside this planet coz its evryday wit diff sizes and colours. We fight! He apologizes, time witout nos I b/up wif him bt either his family, friends or mine settles it back and @d end, I was abt going 4 NYSC when one of his babez got pregnant 4 him coz me sef no dey put body 4ham again when I accused him of infidelity, den told me I shouldn’t expect him to eat a particular kind of food evryday #datzme. So u neva kno a guyz attitude until he’s got cash oo, and I dey so, can’t start 4rm scratch wit a guy again. God 4bid!

        hmm. he isnt your man. besides, it was founded on a wrong foundation. u cant sleep with a man and expect him to marry you after he has seen all of you. it doesnt work that way with God.

    From glory to glory greetings from Gaborone, Botswana. Truly we have a mother to look unto as role model. Am following her daily as mentor and guide to my path of righteousness in Jesus name believing wholeheartedly all the virtues that she carry will be transferred to me as follow her steps. only one mission we stand for: to liberate the oppressed and showing people the perfect will of God and to be a shoulder available in a unique way.
    Love Mum and daddy, your obedience has brought many souls to God almighty.
