20 Facts About Bishop Oyedepo and His Wife That You Need to Know.

by Mo Aremu
1. She met him at a Motor Park…
2. She was a university student – GREAT IFE while he was only a Polytechnic student in Kwara poly (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 stuck to 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”! 
From the source: 
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?

Wandoo April 25, 2014 - 11:02 am

Yes that is because, these parents have gone through and tasted poverty and do not wish any of their children go through such. Secondly, He loved, cherished and respected his wife. How about when you stand by this man through thick and thin and when he becomes somebody someday, he forgets the woman……

Mobolanle R. August 24, 2014 - 12:10 pm

honestly we should out grow this talk of ladies looking for men that has arrived and pushing away the opposite. Beautiful piece there by Leke Beecroft but may i remind u that our parents worked hard to make names so we wont go through what they went through, so we can have a beautiful and comfortable life. Bishop was never without riches though not physical cause it will only take a man who is rich inside to pull out what he has today by God’s grace. Why do men work hard today, why do they wait to be comfortable before getting married? Because they dont want to struggle to cater for their family. Am sure Leke Beecroft had essential things in place before he got married, if he is married and also will put things in place before he gets married, that is if he isnt. No parents will want their children running back to them for daily bread or have ur daughter or son and their own family live in ur house where u will be their bread winner.
Speaking as a woman, am not saying the man should have it all but there are basic things a man should have before settling down. U used Bishop as example; he had a job before getting married, he wasnt penny less, he had accommodation and it is not a must to stay in an hotel after ur wedding ceremony. Talking about challenges he went through and his wife standing by him; challenges is a must to be faced as long as u are here on earth and same way his wife stood by him then is same way some women back then didnt stand by their husbands cause of challenges so dont make the women of now look material consciuos or even make Bishop look old. What we see now did not start with this generation but has always been there. There’s nothing new under the sun.
Lets be truthful to ourselves, how many young single guys out there have sellable potentials and how many with the sellable potentials are willing to face life like Bishop did if u wont hear excuses like government is bad and all that. Also the ones with the sellable potentials who amidst all odds still face life and still facing it are not left untaken just like Mummy Faith did with Bishop.
let me conclude with this; If women do not believe in men like Mummy Faith did with Bishop, then our factory workers who are married to university graduates wont be married and alot of the low income earners wont be married and we wont have alot of married women out there working hard to support their families.
Today Bishop’s children have all they need in place even if Jesus tarries cause their parents worked hard to put those things in place so they dont have to work as hard as they did.
Leke Beecroft life should be progressive. No child should suffer what his/her parents suffered……………….

Ivie August 25, 2014 - 9:41 am

God indeed is faithfull and sure to do same in our lives.getting married to a poor man isn’t the problem.the problem is getting married to A “VISIONLESS” person. Papa is a man with great vision.we should go after a person with vision not just Television.so that we don’t end up watching the once with vision in our televisions.

betty August 25, 2014 - 4:59 pm

May God continues to bless and keep mama and papa for us. May the fresh unction of God come upon my father and mother in the Lord always. I tap into the Grace that’s upon ur family. Amen.

Very inspiring. A tasty food for thought. Pray for unusual grace like Mama. But one also nids an understanding man like Papa too. Sweet Lord take me there

tinuke December 3, 2014 - 10:57 am

Food for thought. but you realize today’s christian even Pastor’s as parent does not want their child to marry a man of vision without visible evidence but a man that has arrived from whatever quarters. may God help us not to miss our man/woman n position in life

Prince Kecy May 6, 2015 - 7:14 am

Its every man or woman’s dream to be honoured wit fruitful marriage, just like that of my father in the Lord Bishop David O. Oyedepo. But it can not be posible without self believe and trust in God for what he can do.

Untill a man value the reason for his manhood and the woman the same, the we never understand the word plant a seed.
That was what our Papa n Mama did, and today the fruit is all over their lives

igwe chidinma May 6, 2015 - 6:48 pm

This is inspiring, God help me to be like them, lots. Of love

Adie Roselyn June 4, 2015 - 4:29 pm

I key into this testimony of great faith.

Orakpor victor February 7, 2016 - 4:27 pm

I believe they both looked up to God as the author and finisher of the faith they had about their vision and marriage.
Father I receive grace and patience to go through the the process that birth great marital success in Jesus name Amen
