PASTOR SUNDAY ADELAJA IS 50 TODAY; THE METAMORPHOSIS BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE
50 years ago, a hero was born in a small city of Ijebu-ode called Idomila, Ogun state, Nigeria. He grew up in wisdom, strength and favour despite the fact that he had to sail through the voyage of challenges. He journeyed from cradle through “THE ROAD OF GREATNESS”.
He was poor but he discovered his riches in Christ and believed “MONEY WON’T MAKE HIM RICH”. He declared “WAR AGAINST POVERTY” in the lives of people around him as he is continually “GROWING WEALTHY WITHOUT TEARS”.
He was naked but discovered his covering in Christ; he had no shoes but now the sole of his shoes is possessing nations for God; he was a corn pap seller now a kingdom carrier as he discovered “LIFE IN GOD’S KINGDOM”. He is continually living a “KINGDOM DRIVEN LIFE” as he overcame the “MOUNTAINS OF IGNORANCE” as a growing believer.
A need arose in heaven on whom will deliver the citizens of the then soviet union (USSR) from communism and God said; “whom shall I send?”, he became “THE MAN THAT GOD WILL USE”. He was 3 months in the Lord after he encountered Jesus while viewing a t.v programme by the renowned Pastor W.F Kumuyi. God saw a communism deliverer in him as God has proposed before he was formed in his mother’s womb.
He got a scholarship to study in America and U.S.S.R, “Where should I go?” was his heart cry. His passion was to make others partake to the stage of metamorphosis that stated three months ago in his life. “should I go to America or U.S.S.R?” he pondered and God spoke to him through his pastor; “if you survive in the communist society, you can survive anywhere”. He took the challenge; he arrived at the promise land. He saw the giants, “why do you send me here Lord” he cried in desperation. He trusted God for an answer and God spoke to him through a vision to commission him for the harvest of the communist society.
He was “INSULTED BY THE UNGODLINESS” and He said to himself; “NATIONAL GREATNESS BEGINS FROM HERE”. The burden of “SPEARHEADING A NATIONAL TRANSFORMATION” overwhelmed him as he continually heard the Holy Spirit in the college telling him; “THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR YOU”. He pondered as the Holy Spirit asked Him; “COULD YOU BE THE ABRAHAM OF YOUR NATION?”
With an option to go to a renowned bible college, he remained in the wilderness as the Holy Spirit told him, embrace “THE WILDERNESS IN YOUR LIFE”. After the wilderness experience as a student, with distinction in journalism and the call upon him, he went to the media to speak the good news. The result he expected was not forth coming then he trusted God for a direction. The direction came as a definition to what genuine ministry means; Touching Lives With The Love Of Christ which is the “ESSENCE AND VALUE OF LIFE”.
He left his confide, removed his jacket and ties, took away the pulpit and started touching lives. He went to the outcast, the drug addict, the alcoholics to fill the vacuum in their hearts as he was provoked “FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND NATION” which is “THE HAPPINESS OF A MAN”.
He touched people with the love of Christ, the truth of the word and “THE TREASURES OF THE KINGDOM”. “The solution we need is around us” the people yelled. He overcame the persecutions of the government and heralded the orange revolution. He had “VICTORY DESPITE THE DEVIL”.
He is the light the darkness of communism could not comprehend. He is the solution to the waste cities and desolate land. He is a repairer of the breach. His life has given birth to “THE RESTORERS OF THE EARTH” , “KINGS AND JUDGES OF THE EARTH”. Many through him has discoverd that “LIFE IS PREDICTABLE”.
In him was the love the outcast needed. In him was the fullness for their vacuum. He has subdued and still subduing kingdoms with the light of the gospel. He is out with a message to the body of Christ, “CHURCH SHIFT”.
He is the initiator of the communist revival, he is a hero of faith, a walking gospel, a kingdom imposer, an impact maker, a trailblazer and a world changer. He is “PASTORING WITHOUT TEARS”. He is heralding his world and still fully active in subduing the whole earth for God as an harvest.
He is returning to Nigeria soon as he believes “ONLY GOD CAN SAVE NIGERIA”. He has an answer to the question, “IS LEADERSHIP THE MAIN PROBLEMS OF NIGERIA?”.
He is 50 today, Pastor Sunday Adelaja, the initiator of Communist Revival.
