Angelic mission of Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi: C&S pastor activates unity mode in white garment churches
FROM DUPE OLAOYE OSINKOLU, LONDON
The upper class of the Heathrow-bound Virgin Atlantic aircraft was a beehive of activities. The flying steel bird, at a glance looked like a holy haven with most passengers in Cherubim& Seraphim and Celestial Church of Christ worship robes (white sutanas), clutching their bibles, taking notes and exchanging glorious views on way forward for the white garment churches worldwide.
Though their religious sects were different, they shared the same mission, supporting a visioner’s dream.
Founder and Senior Pastor of Love of God Generation Church, Esther Abimbola Ajayi was the dreamer whose dream was coming to reality in a grand unprecedented revival in London. Yes, their minds were focused on the joint fellowship of the holy spirit tagged, ‘Celebrating the Comforter’. And the theme was,Celebrating unity in the holy spirit.
Iya Adura as popularly called by her church members saw no reason why the Cherubim & Seraphim and Celestial Church of Christ should not share one love in Christ Jesus.
Every preparation was made. The greatness of the epoch event actually manifested at the Heathrow airport, where the founder and members of Love of Christ Church C&S received the invitees from Nigeria. The planning committee of the event, under the able guidance of Chairman, Central Working Committee, Dr Richard Fasunloye did a swell job as every guest was taken care of, right from arrival at Heathrow, where they were separated from their luggages only for the bags to arrive intact to their owners at the hotel. Orderliness and love were the key words. Ola and Michael Ajayi (Iya Adura, Esther Ajayi’s children) also did their best to ensure the success of the programmes, from day one till the invitees departed London.
The joint grand fellowship of Cherubim&Seraphim was unprecedented, yet it happened, through the ideas and financial provisions of Rev. Mother Ajayi.
Supreme Head of the C&S, His Eminence Dr. Solomon Adegboyega Alao said he promoted Esther Ajayi to Reverend Mother, because of her capabilities and steadfastness in the cause of the C&S and her general efforts in projecting the white garment churches. Dr Alao warned members of C&S to always shun sharp practices and be holy at all times. “If someone is going to defraud the govenment, don’t let it be a C&S member, if people are disobeying traffic laws, don’t let them be C&S members…”, he said
Former President of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo said Ajayi’s promotion by the C&S Movement was long overdue. Obasanjo urged Nigerian and other invitees to embrace love as ‘God is love’. He added that only love could ensure the desired enviable community, society and country that everyone craves.
The Celestial Church of God’s Supreme Head, PastorEmmanuel Oshoffa, who spoke in French enjoined children of God to always think and act in unity, for before God, no dichotomy.
Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi said people should erase their wrong perception about white garment churches as the Cherubim &and Seraphim has been a church of the holy spirit through the ages, and it is even waxing stronger under the leadership of His Eminence, Dr S.A. Alao, the current Supreme Head of the church. She said her church, the Love of God Generation Church will continue to promote unite and welfare of the white garment churches and Christians as a whole.
Dr Fasunloye earlier in his welcome address, said “The magnitude of the Celebrate the Comforter in using the 5000-seater Excel ICC Hall, the number of guest speakers, the invitees and artistes from all over the world was only possible through the cheerful donation and giving of the sponsor, Rev Mother Esther Abimbola Ajayi”. He prayed that God uphold and bless Rev Ajayi more, and to continue using her and her ministry for His Kingdom.
Fasunloye expressed hope that through the Celebrate the Comforter revival, C&S and Celestial churches will henceforth work together to win souls for the kingdom of God and fight the devil for the glory of Jesus Christ.
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi, who led seven other obas to the event said good things always come from the black race. He commended Rev.Mother Esther Ajayi for being who she is, a lover of God and humanity, a believer who does things in a way and manner that others benefit and cherish. He said everyone should know that there is only one God – Olodumare. They should therefore not fight over religion because God is love.
Gospel singers like Chief Ebenezer Obey, Sir Shina Peter, Dorien Jacob aka Oyinbo Jesu, Evang. Bisi Alawiye, Muyiwa Riversongz, Esther Igbekele, among other thrilled attendees to the glory of God. Founder of Christ Apostolic Church, Agbala Itura, Pastor Kayode Abiara, Bishop Dewar, Evangelist Bola Are , Dr Mike Boulog were also part of the event.
Theatre artistes were not left behind. Senior Apostle Segun Aderemi a k a Chief Kanran, reviewing the programme, said Rev. Mother Esther Ajayi has written her name in gold because many have the required resources to promote the work of God but prefer to spend such money on worldly things. Iya Adura, Ajayi however put God first, that is so commendable, may God continue to bless her.
Veteran artiste, Chief Jimoh Aliu, alias Aworo, on his summary of the event said, though he was not a Christian, Rev. Mother Ajayi’s activities and her way of life can easily win souls for Christ. “Don’t be surprised to see muslims and traditionalists turning to Ajayi’s God in the manner of ‘show me your God’, and I will know who to follow’. He said most times, people judge your religion through your behavior and how you relate with God and the people.
