History is Made as Ap. Gen. Awosoga Hands Over Church to ESOCS
It as was mission accomplished and the fulfillment of a vision revealed 38 –years ago, when Apostle General (Dr.) Samson Olusola Awosoga, formally handed over Oke Igbala Mose, Ijebu Ife, the church he personally built, to the Eternal Sacred Order of the Cherubim and Seraphim (ESOCS) worldwide, as a gift.
At an impressive ceremony held at the ESOCS National Headquarters, Surulere, Lagos on June 5, 2019, Ap. General Awosoga, handed over all the titled documents to the Church to His Most Eminence, Dr. David D.L. Bob-Manuel, the Baba Aladura and Prelate of ESOCS Worldwide, which was also witnessed by members of the Advisory Board.
According to Elder Awosoga, the gift was in fulfilling his longtime desire to build a House of Prayer for God, which became so strong over the years “that I determined not to build a house for myself until I build for God.”
Handing over the church to ESOCS, he stated, was also in fulfilment of his conviction, through revelation, that Eternal Sacred Order of the Cherubim and Seraphim (ESOCS) is the true light of the world.
“Today I am here to formally give it all, the church (Oke Igbala Mose, Ijebu Ife, Ogun State), to ESOCS 100% with the strong believe that it will remain a house of God forever,” Elder Awosoga said while handing over the title documents to the Church building, to HME Bob-Manuel.
“I implore you to help the church grow from strength to strength, spiritually and physically,” he added.
Going down memory lane, Ap. Gen. Awosoga said the construction of Oke Igbala Mose, Ijebu Ife, was completed and began operation in November, 1981. And after his ordination as Apostle General during the National Convention at Bara Village, he then informed his first daughter, Prophetess Susan Awosoga and reiterated the intention to give the church, Oke Igbala Mose, to ESOCS 100%.
On May 12, 2019, talks to fulfil the desire began the Provincial Chairman, Ijebu Province, Super Apostle Segun Demuren Jnr.
With the realisation of the dream, Ap. Gen. Awosoga implored the Baba Aladura and members of the Advisory Board, to ensure that the Holy Order grows from strength to strength, spiritually and physically
