ARCHBISHOP BENSON IDAHOSA’S JOURNEY
Archbishop Benson Idahosa was a great man in the faith. He is considered one of the patriarchs of faith in Nigeria. The mighty acts of God through him testified of God’s power at work in Him.
Through Archbishop Benson Idahosa, the church of God in Nigeria was once again announced to the world. He is the founder of Church Of God Mission whose headquarters is located in Benin city Nigeria. He was known to be a man of impact, filled with the Spirit of God, and a worker of all kinds of incredible miracles during his lifetime.
God used Archbishop Benson Idahosa instrumentally in the strong wave of revival in Christianity in Nigeria. Starting ministry at the budding age of 24, God was mightily with His servant and by 1971 he had established over six thousand (6000) churches in Nigeria and Ghana.
His meetings were characterized by deliverances and healing of all sorts. Individuals were healed of epilepsy and numerous different disorders. Supernatural occurrences were freely occurring in these meetings.
In 1967, Benson Idahosa lost his father to the Civil War riots. A year after this, God encountered him one evening in his room and these were the words he heard “I have considered you that you may take the gospel throughout the planet in my name, lecture the gospel, and I will affirm my assertion with signs.”
And just like Apostle Babalola, God confirmed his words in the life of Benson Idahosa through supernatural signs and wonders.
1. RAISING THE DEAD
The dead were raised to life by the resurrection power of God through His servant. 8 different people were recorded to have been raised from the dead by Benson Idahosa on various occasions.
2. HEALING OF A FRACTURED SKULL
Another mind blowing miracle recorded was the time when Archbishop Benson Idahosa repaired a fractured skull of a boy who had fallen from a three story building. It is a miracle that defies human’s logic and even medicine. But that is exactly what the supernatural is – beyond th ordinary.
What makes this miracle even more unthinkable is that the boy’s brain was opened and the servant of God fixed the brain just by praying in the Holy Ghost. The skull that was opened closed, and the boy was revived to life.
3. DISLODGING WITCHCRAFT
Archbishop Benson Idahosa ministrations were known to destroy the activities of witches and wizards. This powerfully demonstrated the power of God over that of darkness. He halted the overall gathering meeting by witches that should have been held in Africa, Benin, Nigeria.
4. BUILDING MATERIALS MULTIPLIED
This miracle happened in the City of Benin just before Archbishop Benson Idahosa went to be with the Lord. At the time, the building materials that were in use at the construction site of Benson Idahosa University got exhausted.
The site workers complained to God’s servant about this scarcity of material to work and similar to the way our Lord Jesus Christ sent His disciples to get money from the mouth of a fish, another supernatural provision happened – the previously diminishing materials multiplied and became enough.
