JACOB ODULATE, The Man Who Invented ALABUKUN Powder Over 100 Years Ago!

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Jacob Sogboyega Odulate aka Blessed Jacob was born into a polygamous family in 1884.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. He was originally from Ikorodu in Lagos State but later moved to the neighbouring Ogun State.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. At age 14, he trekked for three months from Ikorodu before reaching Abeokuta to establish himself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Blessed Jacob managed to create a brand from what served as his consulting room and workshop in Abeokuta. His modest headquarters was at the Sapon Area, not far from where he later built his famous three-storey building in Ijemo Agbadu.

Nigerians will never forget how he enunciated that Tinubu was going to rule Nigeria,a lot of people and prophets made him their enemies and even threatened to him because of that,but God will always fulfil the words of his prophets as Tinubu finally emerged the president despite all the antagonism.

On the 31st of December when this great prophet was dishing out his prophecies for the year 2024,he said categorically and emphatically that the Asian countries will experience a lot of climatic disasters this year.Oman had a very heavy rain that killed 18 people,it included at least nine schoolchildren and their drivers whose vehicle was washed away by the floodwaters.

UAE witnessed the heaviest recorded rainfall in history,this is really alarming as the rainfall caused a lot of havoc.Only the prophetic Hall of fame, prophet Godwin Ikuru saw all these coming.

COLLAPSED KIDNEY RESTORED BY PROPHETIC INSTRUCTION.

Advertisment

I Am a living testimony that the grace and anointing of God upon His choicest prophet, Bishop Okwudili Eze is real.
I had a very life-threatening health issue that affected my kidneys. Both of my kidneys collapsed down to 15%. I ran from pillar to post seeking medical interventions yet nothing was working. Then, I remembered that I have a Prophet over my life though we were no longer in the same state. I quickly picked my phone and put an SOS call across to him.
Immediately, papa gave me an instruction. He asked me to get a bottle of water and when I did, he prayed on it over the phone and asked me to drink it.
That was it! Just like that!
Exactly 24 hours later, I went for a scheduled routine check, it was discovered that the kidneys that collapsed to 15% had jacked back to life!
This was a 24-hours instant creative miracle. I have never seen anything like it!
Indeed, what God of Zion cannot do, does not exist.
Today, I am standing and I am full of life.
To God who has done this miraculous work in my life through His prophet, I say may His name be blessed forever more in Jesus name Amen.
Hon. Ukelonu O.

I HAVE THE KEY!!!
Of a truth, a prophet is one who says something and it comes to pass!
My prophecy came on the 18th of June, The Mandated Prophet called me out and told me to go and learn how to drive a car because he saw a car coming for me. The next day being 19th, the company I work with called and told me that I’m qualified for a car but there was a hitch and the car wasn’t given to me then. I endured and rested on the fact that the mandated prophet of God has said it. Today, the car I was finally given is far better than the former one I was expecting from my company. I have the key!
Indeed, what the God of Zion cannot do, does not exist.
Praise the lord!

GOD SHOWED UP FOR ME!
Of a truth, God in the midst of His people is mighty! Since I started worshipping in Zion Heritage Ministries, I’ve seen plenty mind-blowing miracles!
During the just concluded Seven Super Sundays, on the 6th Sunday to be precise, I came into the service with so much heaviness in my heart because of the medical report I received concerning my knee. Few years ago, I had an accident that required multiple surgeries. After the surgeries, unknowingly my knee was internally affected.
When the discomfort I felt became unbearable, I visited my doctor and after series of scans and tests, he asked me to go and prepare immediately and come back for a knee replacement operation that will cost me over 2.6 million naira.
This was a devastating news to me. My relations were all asking me to be quick with what I was doing to go have my knee operated. I came into the service and as I was still nursing these worries in my heart, Papa called me out prophetically. When I came out, he told me boldly that every plan to have me do a knee replacement operation is hereby cancelled. I believed him.
My next visit to the hospital was a shocker to my doctor. I was sent to do another scan, which I did, but this time, it was seen that I have a fresh knee.
It was miraculous!!!
The doctor asked me, “what happened? how did it happen? where did you go to?”
I said to him the God of wonders in Zion Heritage Ministries has healed me and the operation was cancelled.
Praise the Lord!
In another service, while Papa was ministering under a heavy-duty unction, he challenged the church to sow into the cloud of glory that did appear in that meeting and to redeem it in less than 24hours. It was the instruction of redeeming your seed in less than 24 hours that put a bit of pressure on me. Yet, I came out to sow with faith though, I didn’t have readily available funds with me.
I pledged to sow a token of #50,000 [Fifty thousand naira]. Papa prayed for us and at the close of service I went home. By monday the next day, I managed to gather the amount I pledged as a seed and transferred it to the assigned church account. Less than 24 hours later, I woke up to a heavy financial breakthrough; I received a huge credit alert from my bank. I saw a figure that made me to shout for joy. The money was in six zeroes!! Just like that!
God of Zion Heritage Ministries has given seed to the sower and bread to the eater as recorded in 2 Cor. 9vs10.
Praise the lord again! God has really showed up for me!

DRASTIC RESTORATION OF WASTED YEARS.
The scripture made it clear that God’s plan for us is that of restoration amongst other things. Indeed, I have seen restoration happen in my life.
I’ve been a lover of God from my teenage years, but along the way of my journey in life, I ran into losses that I couldn’t explain. It was so severe that I lost everything; contacts, relationship, resources, family, business… The list is endless. It got to a point that I couldn’t come out of my hiding anymore because of the mockery of people. More painful was that of those, who I once helped at some point in life. I hated church gatherings and church people. All of these happened for the duration of almost 9 years. It was so terrible…. In fact, unexplainable.
Recently, I started going to church again. I came to the Mandated Prophet for a prophetic session. Then, he began to speak the word and mind of God into my life. He instructed me to sow a seed which I did. He also asked me to get a perfume for myself, which he prayed on and sprayed on me.
Soon after that, a friend of mine, who for a long time hasn’t reached me, contacted me. She asked me what has happened to me all this while. After narrating my story to her, she asked me about my business idea that I once shared with her. When I told her everything about the business, she took it upon herself to fund the business from scratch till finish. Today, I am a proud owner of a big blossoming business in a big shop. I am restored and my shame has been taken away.
Praise the lord!!!

COMPLETE RESTORATION
Several months ago, I was called by the Mandated Prophet during the prophetic session of our Enthronement service and he told me that I should pray hard because the people at my work place are working tirelessly to sabotage me.
Meanwhile, I was qualified to be conferred a professorship since 2020 when I was done with my internal assessment and promotional exercises but I have not discussed anything of such with him. I was placed on prayers and after it, Papa told me that everything withheld will be released.
On Sunday, as Mama, Pastor Ifeoma was ministering, she was emphasizing on restoration, and she made a very specific prayer, She said, “God will restore anything the enemy has taken from you”. I held unto that word and left church that day.
Same Week, my promotion was released. The amazing part of my testimony here is that my promotion was backdated to 2020 and all arrears are to be paid equally.
Celebrate God with me; I am currently a Full Professor of Microbiology!

CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE BOUNCED BACK TO LIFE
Truly, What God of Zion cannot do, does not exist. It’s been months and I’m still strong and bouncing.
I was diagnosed with chronic Kidney Failure sometime ago. Both of my kidneys were bad for months that It was difficult for me to urinate. It got to the point, my whole body started parking up. I went to so many hospitals and places but nothing was working. Things became very bad for me and my family that we resorted to borrowing money for my hospital trips and bills. This hardship eventually led to my husband losing his job. As a result of this, I fell into depression and had suicidal thoughts because I felt I was my husband’s problem.
One fateful day, I decided to end my life by drinking sniper (poison), which I bought on my way back to the house. When I wanted to take it, I searched everywhere but couldn’t find it again. It was then, I opened up to my husband about my intention of taking my life. He kept encouraging me and declaring into my life that I will not die. My husband and I decided to open up to our family friend Blessing who linked us to the Mandated Prophet.
When Papa located me during the service, he asked me to tell him who gave me a date to die? At that point, I was speechless (because I was surprised how he found out) and before I could gather myself to reply his question, He asked to be given a bottle of water which he prayed on and told me to drink the water, after which he gave me his handkerchief and declared longevity to me. Shortly after that encounter and declaration, I got my healing!
The medical doctors who told me that my kidneys will not carry me till August conducted tests, scans and x-rays but couldn’t find any issues again not even malaria. To the glory of God, I am healed and my kidneys are back to life!!!
I am blessed to have met the Mandated Prophet. Indeed, he is a father. I truly appreciate sister Blessing and family who linked me to this church.
God truly dwells in Zion! All glory be to Him!
MRS ENE B.

AND IT CAME TO PASS
I want to sincerely honour God and also appreciate God’s servant for being a willing instrument in the Hands of God in the course of the life of my son, Chinomso (now Dr Chinomso).
Papa prophesied over 15 years ago, while my son was still a small boy in Logiss Secondary School and told me that God said that my son will be a Medical Doctor.
We held God by His Word and finally on the 23rd Of March last year, the Word finally came to pass as Chinomso fondly called Nolly did the Oath Taking/ Induction Ceremony into the Medical Career having passed his MBBS Exams…
Prophecy is part of this Success Journey and I said I would not fail to inform papa.
Indeed Papa is a Man of God through whom I have recorded many outstanding Testimonies.
To God be all the glory!

GREAT LOSS AVERTED BY PROPHETIC INTERVENTION.
Indeed, God is faithful and won’t allow those who seek and worship Him to fall into financial traps or great losses. Few days ago, I began to discuss with a man, who I am very familiar with and along the line, the topic of acquiring a parcel of land came up. It was a nice discussion because the price was very affordable.
I was about paying for the land but I had a leading to go to God in prayer. I asked God to reveal this matter to my Papa (Bishop Okwudili Eze) and let him either approve of it or warn me not to go ahead with the transaction.
Before I could meet him in the office for Thursday counseling, I came for Wednesday midweek service and God’s presence was really heavy in that service. All of a sudden, Papa picked me out and told me not to commit or continue with the land transaction that it was a trap to defraud me. I was so shocked! I mean, this was the prayer I said at home before coming to church and I was still planning to meet him in the office for Spiritual guidance.
When I got back home, I called the man and told him that I won’t continue with the land transaction anymore. It was then, he began to confess to me that he too found out that the land papers weren’t real and it was a trap to defraud me.
He eventually apologized to me. When I told him that my Papa who is a prophet told me that the land was fake, he said to me that my Papa is a real man of God.
Praise God for saving me!!!!

HEREDITARY EYE DEFECT KNOCKED OFF BY THE POWER OF GOD
I am standing here to say that of a truth, God is here!
I brought my friend to church for her first time and during the prophetic session in service, the mandated prophet of God spotted her, called her out and ministered to her with his prophetic ministry.
Papa told her that she has a defect in her eyes, which runs in her family and she concurred to it. As a matter of fact, her grandmother and mother had the same problem which resulted to total loss of vision. Secondly, doctors had told her to prepare for the worst as it concerns her eyes.
But in that service, during that very anointed session, she was prayed for. Immediately we got back home she suddenly stopped reading with her glasses. Just like that.
We felt that there was need to revisit the hospital to get her eyes examined and to our amazement, the outcome was wonderful. All the defects were gone. Everything is restored to normal. Till today, she reads without glasses. God of Zion Heritage Ministries has done a glorious thing for my friend and I.
I stand to return all the glory to God.
Praise the lord!
Prof. Mambula S.

THE NEXT TESTIMONY SHALL BE YOUR OWN AS YOU SAY AMEN!!!

Sahara Weekly Reports That The Edi Abali Group has raised an alarm concerning a security threat to the ancestral home and assets of Alhaji Mujahid Abubakr Dokubo-Asari, the Paramount Ruler of Edi Abali Group of War Canoe and Chieftaincy Houses in the Kalabari Kingdom of Rivers State, by the military.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Edi Abali Group Raises Alarm Over Security Threat to Ancestral Home, Assets of Alhaji Mujahid Abubakr Dokubo-Asari

 

 

 

 

 

In a public notice issued by the Edi Abali Group it states that credible intelligence has revealed plans by elements within the 103 Battalion of the Nigerian Army in Obuama to provoke a confrontation and disrupt the peace in the area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to the notice, the plot specifically targets Alhaji Mujahid Abubakr Dokubo-Asari, who is currently out of the country. The army allegedly plans to exploit his absence in order to create a crisis that could be wrongly attribited to the community members, resulting in attacks on innocent individuals. The Edi Abali Group clarifies that there are no issues between their community, the army, and Alhaji Mujahid Abubakr Dokubo-Asari or his company, Royal Fouche Services Limited.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The notice highlights that the tensions arose after Alhaji Mujahid Abubakr Dokubo-Asari spoke out about the involvement of some elements of the Nigerian Army in oil bunkering activities in the Niger Delta. These activities reportedly deprived the government of the much-needed revenue, leading to displeasure among these elements. The group believes that they are deliberately instigating a crisis involving the personnel of Royal Fouche Services to justify an attack on innocent indigenes of the Kalabari communities, particularly in Obuama where Alhaji Mujahid Abubakr Dokubo-Asari is based, as well as the 103 Battalion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mr Mpakaboari Pankin Braide said,

 

 

“The army in Obuama is aware of his absence from the country and plans to exploit this to create a crisis, which will be wrongly attributed to community members, leading to attacks on innocent individuals.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Edi Abali Group calls upon the Nigerian Army to be aware of this plot and to ensure that they are not manipulated into compromising peace and security in the area. They also highlight the proven record of collaboration between Alhaji Mujahid Abubakr Dokubo-Asari and Royal Fouche Services Limited with security agencies in combating terrorism, kidnapping, and insurgency.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The group aims to inform the public, as well as the people of Kalabari and Rivers State, about this planned provocation targeting innocent individuals, including Alhaji Mujahid Abubakr Dokubo-Asari. They emphasize his commitment to supporting President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led Federal Government and Governor Sim Fubara-led Rivers State Governments in ensuring the safety and security of all Nigerians.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Said Mr Mpakaboari Pankin Braide

Secretary Edi Abali Group Of War Canoe and Chieftaincy Houses,

 

 

 

 

 

 

“We want the public, people of Kalabari and Rivers State to be aware of this planned provocation targeting innocent individuals, including Alhaji Mujahid Abubakr Dokubo-Asari, who remains committed to supporting the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led Federal Government and Governor Sim Fubara-led Rivers State Governments in ensuring safety and security for all Nigerians.”
