Kumuyi storms Osun for liberation crusade Discussion in 'Nigeria General News Links' started by Our Reporter, Nov 26, 2015
THE ancient city of Ikire founded centuries ago by Akerere, a hunter from Ife, witnessed a mammoth crowd, which was unprecedented in its history, as Pastor W.F Kumuyi, the General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church Worldwide, kick-started the Osun Total Liberation for Total Man crusade in Ikire last week, at the Saint John’s Primary School.
The crusade was organised by the Deeper Life Bible Church in collaboration with Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN). It attracted several eminent personalities, including royal fathers, clergymen, political bigwigs, and worshippers cutting across various churches and denominations.
The arrival of Pastor Kumuyi ignited a great jubilation from the crowd of worshippers who were already in the mood of prayers enthusiastically expecting their miracles from God.
The joy of Pastor Sola Gondola, the Regional Overseer of Areole Local Government, knew no bounds for being privileged to host the cleric in his domain. The Osun State CAN Chairman, Rev. Elisha Ogundiya, thanked the organisers for making the crusade a reality by the physical presence of Pastor Kumuyi in Ikire, which he believed God would use to bring salvation and miracles to the participants.
The CAN choir rendered soul-steering song entitled: “I’ll give the best to the Lord,” while Osun State Deeper Life mass choir rendered their own life transforming message in songs entitled: «It›s really surprising what the Lord can do.”
While inviting Pastor Kumuyi to the microphone, the Osun State overseer of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor John Biola Adeniran, who was highly elated, also thanked the Lord for making it possible to have the African foremost evangelist and an astute teacher of the word of God, Pastor Kumuyi, to kick-start the Osun Liberation crusade in Ikire and equally admonished the people to expect great things from God.
"It was a fulfillment of the word of God in Psalms 110:3am, which said: 'the people shall be willing in the day of thy power' when Pastor Kumuyi came up to preach the word of God, as the shout of hallelujah rent the air and the whole arena became charged with the presence of God," he said, assuring that miracles would be their lot.
He took his text from the book of Joshua 10:14: "And there was no day like that before or after it, that the Lord harkened unto the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel." He informed the congregation that God was going to fight their enemies for them and that God would blow away all chaffs from their lives.
He divided his message into three parts: Desire of troubled captives, deliverance from triumphant Christ, and decision with thorough confessions.
He taught the people to desire a change in their lives and characters and turn to the Lord for salvation and miracles. He emphasised that their breakthroughs were premised on their desire for change.
He also instructed the people to make right decisions through confessions of sins to usher them into the throne of God to obtain mercy help at the time of needs.
After this powerful message, thousands responded by giving their lives to Jesus and with simple prayers of faith by Pastor Kumuyi, majority were healed and set free from demonic oppression.
There was miracle galore: Evangelist Michael Ayinde was delivered from eight years of back ache; Pa Adeola Adebisi was healed of seven years of legs problems; Fatoye Blessings, a student of Ibukun Olu College, Orile Owu, had pains in all her body and joints for years; she had been to the teaching hospitals for several tests and check ups to no avail but got her deliverance after the prayer of the man of God.
Akintoye Janet from Apomu, had a second leg shorter than the other but after the prayer, her short leg grew out normally.
Mr. Ogunwole Kazeem, a retired civil servant, was healed of stroke, while Sister Seyi Oyewumi was healed of cancer of the breast that had spread to her armpit. She came to the crusade from the hospital, where she underwent an operation.
Dignitaries present included Oba Olatunde Falabi, Akire of Ikire and his wife, Olori Anthonia Falabi, and other 19 chiefs. There were also Elder Peter Babalola, a foremost politician in Osun State; Pa Chief Emiola Adesina; Rev. Sumbo Ige, Osun State PFN Chairman; Venerable O.O. Olaniyan and CAN chairman of Irewole Local Government.
Others were Oba Adebayo Ogunmokun, Akeji of Ikeji-Ile, and his wife, Olori Ajisola Ogunmokun; High Chief Abiola Simeon Omo Olorun, Babarisa of Erin Ijesa, who led a powerful delegation from Erin-Ijesa, the home town of Pastor Kumuyi. Mr. Olalere Ajimotokin, the Youth Leader of Erin Ijesa; Hon Solomon Ajimotokin, Vice Chairman, Oriade Local Government; Chief Adebowale Samuel (JP), Odofin of Erin Ijesa; Chief Akinyemi Oyeleye, loyin of Erin Ijesa; Chief Agunbiade Segun, among several others.
To God be the glory. May the grace, anointing, wisdom and power of God continue to be multiplied upon our father in the Lord, pastor W F Kumuyi. May the Lord continue to use you to save, heal and deliver multitudes of souls from sin, sickness and satanic oppression and may He continue to protect you from the enemies of the gospel in Jesus' name, Amen.
This press release was signed before embarking on the spiritual voyage to Ogun and Osun State

As the whole world await the official installation of the Ooni-designate, Enitan Adeyeye Ogunwusi as the 51st Ooni of Ife, Ogun and Osun stated in South West Nigeria are to witness a spiritual overhaul of the entire system through the instrumentality of the man of God, Pastor William Folorunsho Kumuyi.
Pastor Kumuyi is billed to hold ground-breaking crusades across 12 communities of Ogun State which began on Wednesday through November 8 and commence another in Osun State from November 17.
Briefing newsmen in Abeokuta recently, the Ogun State overseer of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor Edison Daminabo said no fewer than 50,000 rural dwellers were being expected at each gathering with free registration for all participants, noting that it was part of the church’s efforts at taking the gospel to the interior and subsequently win more souls into God's kingdom.
He said, "Our General Superintendent will be coming to Ogun State for the third time this year but his time around, he is coming to the grassroots. He has gone around 27 locations in Lagos.
According to him the targeted areas include: Agbado, Oke-Aro, Ijoko, Ota, Atan, Ifo, Ilaro, Ijebu-Imushin, Ijebu-Ode, Ijebu-Igbo, Sagamu and Aiyetoro. He said "we are focusing on those places because some of them can't come because of transportation and some are old. By going into the remote areas, they will be able to gradually join us."
Commenting on the state of the nation, the state superintendent opined that only God could rid the country of the menace of corruption, stressing that the ministry was trying its best at organising programmes that would mould the Nigerian youth towards becoming better citizens.
"So many churches today don't care about the word of God. But in our church, we don't have sacred cows. I pity pastors who pamper these (corrupt) men, who normally bring money to them. A pastor that does that is not called of God. He is for money and that will destroy them," the Ogun overseer stated.
In a release signed by Mark Debo Taiwo on behalf of the Osun State overseer, Pastor John Biola Adeniran, stated that the Pastor Kumuyi, will tour the whole state to hold crusades in major towns and cities, that will offer life-enhancing opportunities to the people of the state.
The crusade that has "Total liberation for total man" as its theme is being viewed in many circles as panacea to the myriad of problems and situations facing the people of the state at this material time, and it promises salvation, healings, breakthroughs and lots more to the participants in particular and Osun State in general.
According to Pastor Adeniran, Pastor Kumuyi, anointed with signs and wonders, will kick start the crusade at St. John’s Anglican Grammar School, beside Police Station, Ikire on November 17, then he will be at Ipetu-Ijesa Grammar School, Ipetu-Ijesa the following evening.
He will be at Deeper Life Camp Ground, Ejigbo, Oduduwa College, Ile Ife, Garage Olode, Ipetumodu, Ilesha, Ede, Ibokun, Ikirun, Ila-Orangun, Oke Ejigbo, Iwo and the state capital, Osogbo will play host to the grand finale of the crusade at the City Stadium, Ikirun Road on November 28 and 29.
I transverse Osogbo because of my very good mentor there. I was there during the Osogbo liberation for the total man. It held at the stadium.
It was a collective effort of PFN and CAN with DLBC Osun. I don't know about Ikire close to Ikirun, or ife... But let me talk about Osogbo.
The stadium was not full even after CAN and PFN mobilized their members. It's worthy of note that that stadium is not more than 10,000 capacity.
It was poorly organized... I mean timing, organization etc (understandable by the fact that alot of cook spoil the broth), was that why I didn't see reports on Oshogbo crusade?
Now, I'm applauding Pastor WFK for the evangelical work. God bless him more.
These said, I await your Osogbo report.
Thanks for giving us your perspective. We also thank all those who put hands on deck to see that souls were saved and delivered and we thank God for the hand of the Lord that was upon Pastor Kumuyi to bring blessings to the various towns mentioned. To God be the glory for the great things He has done.

Pastor Kumuyi Takes The Gospel To Enugu Hinterlands
Deeper Life's Founder, Pastor Kumuyi, Takes The Gospel To Enugu Hinterlands Posted by African ExaminerLatest News, NewsMonday, January 26th, 2015
Like one of the foremost Apostle of Jesus Christ, Simon Peter, the founder and general Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible church worldwide, Pastor William F. Kumuyi, had remained committed in the spreading of the gospel of Christ to all nations, including Nigeria.
The renowned and fire-brand pentecostal cleric, also believes strongly in practical Christianity hence, he always preach the gospel undiluted when ever he mounts the alter of God, or podium as the case may be.
Though, a Nigerian by birth, Kumuyi, has traversed virtually the entire globe in the course of wining souls for Jesus Christ, as well as setting the captive free.
Over the years, the name Pastor Kumuyi, had been synonymous with signs and wonders as well as extraordinary supernatural miracles during special religious programmes, such as crusades.
Since the establishment of the church in August,1973, the Nigerian indigenous Deeper Christian Life Ministry (DCLM), had continued to grow from strength to strength, as it can now boast of branches across the world.
Apart from soul winning for Christ, the Deeper Life church had continued to Impact on humanity in various sectors, especially education. The tremendous breakthroughs and spiritual upliftments of depressed believers by the church had over the years, continued to attract more membership to its fold.
As a faith based organisation, which believes firmly in the teaching of Jesus Christ and dictates of the Holy Bible, (DCLM), which started as a 15- member Bible study group on the campus of university of Lagos (UNILAG), has today blossom.
Because of its founder's visionary leadership, the church is today regarded in many quarters as one of the fastest growing Pentecostal Christian Ministry in Nigeria and beyond.
Presently, it has established presence in over 60 countries across the globe, which includes, African continent, Europe, Asia, North America, South America, among others.
In the last forty years of its existence, the ministry has grown to become a multi faceted omnibus of a Christian mission, pursing its goal of spiritual and secular development of mankind through its various arms, among which is, the Deeper Life Bible church DLBC, which it has planted in all villages and cities in Nigeria, with over one million and five hundred members.
Other arms of the church, include Deeper Life campus Fellowship, DLCF, a specialised arm of the ministry that based in tertiary institutions of higher learning, targeting students in their prime age.
The organ is fully entrenched in nearly all the major tertiary institutions, such as universities, Polytechnics, Colleges of Education, amongst others.
The church also runs the Deeper Life Prison Outreach, an arm that reaches out to the prison inmates. Deeper Life hospital outreach is another organ of the church that reaches out to sick people admitted in various hospitals with the gospel massages, which will bring salvation and healing to them.
In fact, the ministry has no fewer than ten different arms which handles various human related issues and problem. However, because of his total commitments in transforming peoples lives, both spiritually and physically, the General Superintendent (G-S) of the church, Pastor Kumuyi, has from time to time staged evangelical gospel crusades designed to minister to the needs and problems of people.
Available testimonies records indicate that such spiritual exercise have over the years, yielded wonderful fruits when ever it is organised, as scores of people who attended with various forms of problems go back home free and transformed.
Over the years, there had been reported cases of Deeper Life church crusades in many cities, where God used Pastor Kumuyi, as an instrument to make the lame work, blind to see, the deaf to hear, dumb to speak, among other signs and wonders.
Perhaps, it is in line with the biblical injunction when Jesus Christ commanded his Disciples to go into the world to disseminate the gospel, as well as heal the sick, that Pastor Kumuyi, decided to storm the coal city state of Enugu, for a 3-day power- packed evangelical crusade, which lasted between 15-17, August 2014.
However,exactly six months, August 2014 precisely,after the crusade took place in Enugu, Pastor Kumuyi, is set to visit the coal city state for yet another. Power- packed 5- day crusade as directed him by God.
Unlike that of 2014 which took place only in Enugu city, the forthcoming crusade scheduled to hold between 27th- 31st January, 2015 will take place in eight regions of the church in the state.
The crusade with the Theme: "Great Day of His Power"
Will come to a climax on 31st, January at the Deeper Life Camp ground, along Abakaliki Express road, near naira Triangle Enugu. Addressing newsmen in Enugu on the forthcoming spiritual exercise, Enugu state Overseer of the church, Pastor Godson Ezenwajiofor, said “what we saw in August 2014 was just the tip of an iceberg in comparison to what we are expecting in this month of january, 2015”
"The last event was held at a single location as earlier stated, but this time around, Pastor W.F. Kumuyi is personally taking his evangelistic crusade to the headquarters of all 8 regions of Deeper Life Bibile Church in Enugu state.
"The man of God desires to take the good news of the gospel and its attendant deliverance power to the lowliest,the richest and mightiest, to the door steps of all and sundry in Enugu state"
Said Ezenwajiofor:, "Pastor Kumuyi, is an anointed, time tested, unassuming preacher of the gospel, whom God has been using within and beyond this country to disseminate the good news of the gospel".
"He is bringing with him a message that comes to wipe away tears from the eyes of multitudes that are perpetually harassed, tormented and dehumanised in various spheres of their lives.
"I'm referring to millions of people in Enugu state and beyond who continue to face numerous spiritual, physical, psychological and mental agonies that have defied all known human remedy"
"As the man of God lifts this country in prayer during this crusade, we expect manifestation of the power of God that will also ensure a peaceful electioneering campaign and voting exercise that is facing Nigeria as a nation right now.
Pastor Ezenwajiofor, therefore, urged the people of southeast Nigeria, especially Enugu state resident to take advantage of the crusade in bringing their problems to God,who has the answer and remedy to every problems.
The state Pastor, listed the church regions where the crusade would take place to include Nsukka, Igboeze, Obollo, Aku, Udi, Awgu, Nkanu and Enugu.
