Oba Adedapo Adewale Tejuoso celebrates 76th birthday with 5 day Crusade

We all know Oba Dr. Adedapo Adewale Tejuoso; The Oranmiyan Osile Oke Ona Egba Abeokuta (CON) as a doctor, businessman and king. His name brings pictures of royalty, glamour, and prestige to your mind. All these are totally true but there’s a part of him most of you don’t know; Kabiyesi is a man after God’s own heart.

He turned 76 this year and he got the instruction from God to celebrate his birthday with a 5day crusade at Ajah Lekki. Apart from Kabiyesi, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo; Nigeria’s erstwhile president who is now addressed as Pastor Matthew Aremu Obasanjo was also supposed to minister at the crusade but he was unavoidably absent.  Other notable preachers at the event were Bishop Kayode Williams and Pastor James Ademuyiwa from the United Kingdom.  
Kabiyesi Tejuoso is a gifted teacher of the word; I sat with him for over an hour before the crusade and he began to explain scriptures to me. Just like everything he does, his teaching of the Word is thorough, backed up with scriptures and inspired by the Holy Spirit.  The crusade had in attendance a crowd of over 3000 people with many men and women giving their lives to Christ.

I want to share his sermon at the 5day Ajah Lekki Crusade with you . I pray this word will bless you in Jesus name.  Excerpts;

Kabiyesi’s Sermon at Ajah Lekki Crusade

You can see that I am wearing a crown tonight; if I didn’t wear my crown, passersby would not know that a new thing has started.  When they see that it’s an Oba on the pulpit, they would want to hear what I have to say and in the process, God will arrest them.

There are 2 kinds of prisons; that of the world and those in locks. The ones in locks are lucky because they have a house but those outside are those under the bondage of Satan, it’s because of them that we are here today. You may be looking at those under lock as prisoners but if you are under the bondage of Satan, you are in more bondage than them.

You have seen people stand up to preach but you haven't seen someone sit down to preach. Kings sit; if we were to do it as it’s been done, you are meant to stand as I am sitting but in Christ Jesus, we are all kings.

Jesus is the way, truth and life but the road is narrow.  I have brought one passport for you and it’s only through Jesus, when God sees Jesus in you, He won't judge you, He will judge the Jesus in you. We don't judge people twice, Jesus was judged for you, He gave you His life, He didn't give you 10%; He gave you 100%. He died so that we will not perish. I bring this light to you, Jesus is the light that was spoken of in Genesis 1; 3 “ And God said, Let there be light; and there was light”. And also in 2 Corinthians 4 vs 6; “For God who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”  

The light that Jesus brings to your life is nothing you can compare to the light of this world; it’s the light that comes with truth and life. If you look at the sun, you can be blind, yet the light of Jesus is brighter than that of the sun.  Acts 26:13 “At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me” The light that Saul saw was brighter than the sun, it was in the day and the sun didn't blind him yet he met Jesus and he was blind for 3 days.

1 Kings 3;12 “ Behold,  have done according to thy words; lo, I have given thee a wise and understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.
God told Solomon there won't be a wiser man than him yet I am wiser than Solomon.  Matthew 12:42 :  The queen of the South shall rise up in the  judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it; for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and behold a greater than Solomon is here”. Jesus said He is wiser than Solomon and if I have Jesus in me, I am wiser than Solomon. Don't you want to be wiser than Solomon?
Jesus is the way, truth and the life and He is here today, He's knocking at the door of your heart and He says if you open up, He will dine and wine with you. 

Jonathan was a friend to David, yet his father, Saul was an enemy. The friendship between Jonathan and David was bound by a covenant to always remember and favour him. One day, David asked if there was any seed of Saul left, he was told there was a son left who was a cripple. They thought that David would not accept the son because he was crippled, all of us are crippled in the eyes of God, this country is crippled in the eyes of God. David gave a command that the cripple would eat with him on the same table. Jesus is also calling you to come and eat with him on the same table, Jesus is calling you, He is knocking at the door of your heart. Most of you will not sit at table to eat with a cripple but whenever David looks at the cripple, it’s Jonathan he sees. When you accept Christ, God sees Jesus, the way David sees Jonathan in the cripple. I pray you will not turn deaf ears to Jesus. 

You are wreaking havoc to your life if you don't accept Jesus into your life. Don't leave here without accepting Jesus. If you have not accepted Jesus, accept Him today.
