Last Interview with Late Dr. Wole Bamiduro, Man who discovered TB Joshua + Untold story of his life

Late Prophet Wole Bamiduro on a One-on-One with the GDA in his lifetime
It was actually sometime in the early
part of  year 2014 that this blog met late
Prophet (Dr.) Wole Bamiduro  the late founder of Lion of Judah Church of Christ,
a spiritual church situated on 5/7,  Wole
Bamiduro Street
by Ahmadiyya Bus
, Ojokoro LCDA who died on
January 4, 2016 and was buried last Friday January 8.
 The late Prophet who is equally famous with
his gift of healing was in his best mood on that Thursday Morning and it was
obvious. One secret that has lived with this man of God for two decades was the
secret of how he discovered the world famous Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua
who is the founder of the Synagogue
Church of All Nations

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Handlers of the famous prophet’s
biography have not for once mentioned Wole
or the role of his church in connection with TB Joshua’s success and that was the reason why we decided to seek
out for this great man of God since 2013 in order to establish fact and make
the truth known to the world. Some processes and schedules went into persuading
Prophet Bamiduro to grant interview
and reveal facts behind the story.
Getting him to talk was like trying
to milk water out of a stone. Very intelligent, enlightened and well informed,
the man of God would prefer to choose a time to respond to questions put across
to him as he wouldn’t like to be quoted out of facts.
 When his aides finally agreed to grant us
audience, on that Thursday morning
it was like a dream come true as we razed down to his Ahmadiyya Bus stop, off Lagos Abeokuta Express way sprawling church
situated on NO 5/7 Wole Bamiduro street.
On getting there one of his aides informed us that ‘Daddy was attending to some
people’ and we had to wait for another two hours before the interview kick
started. Prophet Bamiduro who was
initially putting on a green Ankara dress on sighting our team  jokingly said he wouldn’t like to be captured
half measured “I have to wear my prayer garment rather than a circular clothe
so that your people will know that I am a prophet, not a pastor” he said as
guests and aides burst into laughter. By the time the man of God returned after
seven minutes, history was made as we met face to face with the man widely
acclaimed as the man whom Pastor TB
got his spiritual tutelage from before becoming a success story
globally. Although Prophet Bamiduro
hates to take the credit for discovering a great Man of God like TB Joshua but he equally agreed that
God showed him that “Tope” as he fondly addresses him will be great someday.
Today we present you the first part
of the exclusive interview granted to Asabeafrika
by Prophet (Dr.) Wole Bamiduro
who passed away last Monday January 4 during his sleep at the age of 62. Enjoy
the excerpts.

We are very grateful for the
privilege of meeting you at last after 3 months of trials. We will like to
first and foremost know who Prophet (Dr.) Wole Bamiduro is, as one of the great
prophets in Nigeria, what is your antecedent like?

I am a
prophet by virtue, I can’t call myself a Pastor because a Pastor’s role is to
guide the flocks through preaching and pacification but a prophet will give a
revelation and will also conduct a miracle. That is the work of a prophet, a
prophet can do anything either with water or with sand or anything; a prophet
can use it. That is the work of a prophet.
Wole Bamiduro to Asabeafrika….’I Stopped publishing my early year
Prediction book because bad occurrence happens simultaneously these

Sir, how were you called, from what
we gathered from your profile, you have been a prophet for 50 years now how did
you get the calling?

What I
noticed is that when I was in the boarding school, I lived in the boarding
house. And every now and then when I was on my bed in the night, I saw people;
about three people will appear to me in white attire. I thought they were dead
people and each time I run home to go tell my father that this is what I always
see when sleeping, because, physically I will be looking at them; they will
stay by my bed. So, my dad prepared a medicine for me because dad was an
herbalist. He prepared some medications and did a mark on my head; just like a
cross. When he marked my head, that very day when I got to the school I started
seeing seven-seven people whom I now discovered were angels, not human beings. These
seven-Seven angels will come to my bed. Until one day when I went to the farm
to  go and read because we always read
inside the farm then; as I was sleeping, I saw them again; they were with me
and I had to run back to my father to say ‘sir, I still continue to see these
dead people o’. The entire episode went on until a particular day I went for a
vigil at a church in my town and they just put the photograph of JESUS in my
heart. I can tell you that I started this ministry when I was young. Very, very
young, so, when I got to Lagos state I joined a church, Cherubim and Seraphim. From there I became the choir master and I
continued to see these same angels, they will always visit me. From there I
entered the Celestial Church of Christ;
when I became a member of the Celestial
Church of
Christ, an angel came
to me when I was sleeping; this particular angel woke me up and started talking
to me that this is what I am going to become, this is what I am going to do. He
said, this is how to go about it and at the end of the day, it materialized. I
saw the Holy Spirit that very night
and from that moment I became a prophet. I can tell you that I don’t know this
job before but it is as a result of the act of God. That is why I told you that
a prophet must be a prophet. You can use ordinary stone to kill; you can use
ordinary sand to kill. You can even use ordinary word of mouth or any other
object just to implement the work of Christ
. This is very different from the calling of a pastor which is to
preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Not that a Prophet can not preach the gospel, the Prophets are preachers too
but they preach from the perspective of what they see. So, you command, condemn
and intercede because you can see things ordinary eyes can not see.  Before now, I use to do what I call “The Vision of the Year” book for
Nigeria but I stopped it few years ago.
Prophet Wole Bamiduro being lowered into his final resting place

Why did you stop the book?

these days, what you are looking at is more than the vision. You are seeing the
evil in the land rising to a monumental level, Boko Haram is killing millions of people; people are dying as a
result of job search through the Immigration Services, a government body that
suppose to protect them. So, what are you going to tell Government to do again,
when Government itself has lost her bearing, what are you going to see. A lot
of bad events are happening. Nowadays, you see a prophet saying he is seeing
vision for Nigeria, he is seeing nothing. He is only forecasting. What he
supposed to see is already happening. 
You see men of God saying they are doing miracles, yes you may say you
are doing it in the name of Jesus Christ
but I can tell you that there are some borrowed miracles that are not worthy of
being shown in the public.
Prophet (Dr.) Jacob Oluwole Bamiduro….’Today’s Christian Leaders have
destoyed the essense of salvation by commercializing it’

Do you call it “Borrowed Miracles”

borrowed miracles. They happen in the society for the sake of getting something
to eat. Let me explain to you, in other situation where you say you are healing
a blind man, I mean somebody that has been blind from the youth and then you
heal that person. At the end of the day you bring that person to the
auditorium, coming to the auditorium you raise the person’s hand and ask ‘what
is this color?’ and the person answers you ‘oh, it is black or it is white or
it is pink’. How did he know that it is black, pink or white? A blind person
from child birth  can not suddenly know
the color of a cloth because he is not even familiar with the names of the
colors in the first instance. Or you are healing a lame man, a lame man that
can not walk; somebody who can not walk is a lame man, now you are healing a
lame man and you bring this same lame person to your podium and you raise him
and the next thing is for him to start running around but you know it is an
aberration, it is a fake miracle. That is not a miracle. Me, that I am sitting
here, I have done lots of miracles that you yourself know about it (referring
to this blogger), I heal many sick people, I heal mad people and you can see
that all the cases were gradual. You start from the beginning. Not just for you
to say you are healing a lame man and the person continues jumping around, he
can not be jumping because the signs of the lameness will still manifest in the
few moments of his miracle. It is not magic. The signs of the mad man will
still manifest for a few moment and not just that he will spontaneously recover
his senses. So, if you want to do miracle, you must do it in the act of Jesus
Christ.  You know in some churches today,
you see them start rolling on the floor, which simply means that it is a
miracle that has been paid for.

Late Prophet Wole Bamiduro to Asabeafrika…’I am a Prophet not a Pastor’

You can easily contact somebody to come to the
altar and say to the church ‘I am a witch, I have killed and destroyed lives
and here I am, I am giving my life to Christ”, it is simply a bargained
miracle. A miracle that has been purchased, if you see a real witch craft that
is confessing, you will know that this one is a real one, nobody will tell you.
Today, you see a witch confessing with her composure intact. No witch will
confess with her composure intact, never. Like the other time you were here,
you saw the way that woman that was brought by her children confessed and kept
running her mouths for days before she was delivered by God.  The story was published in Alaroye
, (Years back) we didn’t torment her, she was brought here and
she confessed out of her own volition which must have been induced by God’s
power. That is exactly how a witch confesses, no staging of fake drama. Not
that you are going to contact a person, giving him or her money to come and disgrace
his or her family for the sake of your own self-glorification.  In Nigeria of today, we have so many churches
that you will think we are more religious than the Romans, you have both the
mega and mini churches yet crime is still on the high rise. Why is our country
still in crisis? we are in a state of pandemonium in Nigeria, that is what I
want us to know. If churches are genuine in their callings, if they are
preaching the real word and doing the work of salvation, Nigeria will not be as
bad as this. Today, if you read the papers, half of the stories are linked to
Pastors who indulges in all acts of fraudulence. Pastors who are cheat, dupers,
armed robbers; in fact the name “Pastor” has come to an all time low in the
Christian lexicon. Our Pastors are now looking for riches and comfort and so
they become epitome of evil. They join all sorts of societies because they want
to be great. Well, you can be greater toady in the eyes of men but tomorrow you
will be small in the presence of Jesus
. That is what you ought to know.

Late Prophet (Dr.) Wole Bamiduro to Asabeafrika…’I Used to see strange beings when I was a kid’

Sir, are you now saying that Nigerians
have lost their moral value as a result of the disheartenment of the Church

You see
Nigerians are not bad but we religious leaders, Christians and Muslims are the
ones contributing to the downfall of this country. Because as we pray in the
church, the Muslims also pray in the Mosque and those working at our various
houses of assemblies, those working with our governors and those working with
the president and condemning the president are all Christians or Muslims. So,
what they are supposed to do, they don’t do. See how they are killing children
under the pretense that they are Muslims. See how they are destroying Nigeria,
we are in a confused state. So, when the Preachers are talking now, they will
be telling you that the end time has come. I will tell you that the end time
has not come.
Late Prophet Wole Bamiduro…’It is we religious leaders who destroyed the fabrics of religion’

Why do you say that, sir?

If the end
time has come, nobody will remain in Nigeria. When the end time comes, nobody
will tell you. Because Jesus Christ
said that He himself didn’t know the particular time the end will come. But we
people that are bad; we are as bad as Sodom
and Gomorrah
, we are as bad as all the early people of the Bible. Can you
understand? We are not even building good image for our children coming behind.
We are not doing that, we Pastors, we Evangelists, we Prophets, we Bishops, we
are not giving hope to the hopeless. We are only giving hope to ourselves. We
are building bigger churches for our own children to inherit. In the olden days,
when the likes of Anglican Church
built their churches, they will build the structure for more than twenty years.
And the church will never be complete in ten years; other generation will come
and build upon it. But what do we see today? Capitalists building stadium as
churches, the work of salvation has been turned into the work of self-glorification.
We build stadiums, we build bigger schools. The school that you build, no
ordinary person can afford to send their children to the school. Even majority
of your members can not send their children to that school, so where is your
work of salvation? Who owns the money you used in erecting such an edifice and
who owns it? Free will, offerings and tithes brought about the whole thing and
yet you converted it to something for yourself and your family.
Late Prophet Wole Bamiduro to Asabeafrika….’Most of the miracles performed today are borrowed miracles’

It appears to me that you are
referring to people like Bishop David Oyedepo and their likes who built very
expensive schools at the expense of God’s calling?

Let me tell
you something, I am not mentioning names and I am not interested in mentioning
names. I am just telling you how Christianity has been bastardized in Nigeria.
They know themselves and their heart can scrutinize them because the simple
work of the church is to reform and give salvation. It was like when the former
Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Sanusi
Lamido Sanusi
came, he could see the evil going on in the banking sector
and he went ahead to correct it. Banks were using their might as money holders
to do other business that were to be done by the people. For instance, there
was universal banking and all that which seeks to take off every other business
that an average loan seeker could do and the very intelligent Sanusi came and stopped it; that the
paramount job of a bank or a banker is to lend. You take money from Mr. A and
give to Mr. B or C. Lending, arbitrate or sort out money matters between the
lender and the keeper that is the job of a bank. And since then professionalism
has returned to the banks. The job of a church is salvation not business
transactions; and if there is enough fund to throw around just like Jesus and his disciple saved twelve
baskets of bread and fish after feeding five thousand crowd with two fishes and
five loaves of Bread, all you still spend it on is salvation, salvation and
salvation. Trough cheap education you can save lots of souls.

Late Prophet Wole Bamiduro to Asabeafrika…’Today’s Pastors & Bishops have stopped giving hope to the hopeless’

For you an
Evangelist, a Pastor or a Bishop to build a school and your fees is the only
one that is so exorbitant in the society, under the pretense that you are a
pastor and none of the children of the poor that the Bible asked you to cater
for can afford the fee to attend your school, is that the work of God?. Is that
your brief as a man of God? Did God ask you to extort money from the society at
all cost? Are you an armed robber? You built a university and none of your
worshippers can benefit from it. Some of us even send our kids abroad because
of the outrageous amount being asked by these capitalists, because the white
man is more considerate in the things that edify humanity.  Education is even cheaper there than among
our men of God here. What I am saying in essence is that the church in our
society has lost their primary value, which is salvation. The church is a body
of Christ and if we must see it that way, we must endeavor to redeem the image
of the church in the eyes of the people. A church should endeavor to build a
legacy that people can benefit from and remember in the future. We still
remember the CMS (Christian Missionary Schools), we still remember the
Anglican, we remember the Catholic we remember the CAC (Christ Apostolic
Church) and their virtues of selflessness. But today, even those schools we are
talking about, to enter them you have to throw bribe at the pastor.  I as a person started from CAC Primary
school, I went to CAC Modern School, I finished at CAC Modern School, I went to
a Muslim school, ANSAR-DEEN Grammar School to finish my O’level, all at very
affordable prices. I still have the tellers and receipts with me.  So, what are they doing today, you are
charging a million, two million because you want to give people education and
yet some of these children come out of school with nothing to do; some become
Okada riders, some become drivers and some just wander about with nothing doing.
So, what is the essence of your ambiguous education? We need to open our eyes
and ask valid question because it is only the truth that can set you free.
Nigeria need to change.

Late Prophet Wole Bamiduro to Asabeafrika….’The only great and sincere Pastor in Nigeria is Pastor Tunde Bakare

Why I love Pastor Tunde Bakare.

Sir, who is to blame the political or
religious elites?
You can’t
compare political things with ecclesiastical things. Politics is politics while
church is the act of God with preference for building morals.  Before you become a church leader, you must
learn how to motivate people but if you join the politicians as a man of God,
you are to behave like a man of God. Let me give you an example, Pastor Tunde Bakare is a man of God and
a church leader before he was called to the soap box. He joined politics and it
was the best decision he took. I can tell you, and I tell you right away that Jesus Christ is a politician. Jesus is a politician; when he saw the
multitude, he started preaching in order to convert them to God; he preached to
them and he gave them a new lifeline. So, any one that is against Tunde Bakare now is against God because
Jesus Christ himself preached to the
multitude before he was able to get converts for God. See how he was able to
get Peter also known as Simon off his fish trade for salvation
work. See what he did to get his disciples together, he persuade them from
working for themselves to working for Him; so if Bakare now decides to go into politics, it is the act of God. I
love the man, although we have never met before but I love him because he is
trying to say the truth and people don’t like him for that. See, when the
government gave him Christmas cow, he publicly rejected it and made it clear
that it was not in his tradition to take such a gift. Look at this National Confab issue, some people are
there just because of the money. Some people are there for the sake of what
they are going to earn not for patriotism, imagine someone being paid Four Million Naira per month. Four
million times three is twelve million naira; you are doing this when some
people are hungry; majority of your people are jobless and someone will receive
a salary of four million naira in a
month and for that three months, he will take twelve million naira home. Here we talk of average Nigerians who
can not even afford to pay their children’s school fees talk-less of feeding
themselves. Our hospitals are in bad shape, the electricity is epileptic. Our
federal roads are more or less death traps. In the olden days, if I want to
drive to Ibadan, I always drive on that road for forty-five minutes and
I am in Ibadan to enjoy myself and play with my friends. But nowadays,
before you get to Ibadan, the night has fallen. 
Let alone go to Ondo state or any other far
destination, now the money they are supposed to aggregate for such purpose is
now paid to feed stomachs. Why are they not paying those (Confab attendees) ten
thousand naira per seating? And in a month you can pay this people forty
thousand or thirty thousand naira. Do you know whatever they are going to eat
there is free? So, our leadership system is very bad.
