Kindly introduce yourself
My name is Oluremi Peter, I am 59 years old
How did you become an Evangelist
” Bearing an Evangelist is a thing of spiritual , not an in-born thing , the time that the gift began to manifest was about 18years ago. when I went through CAC Seminary , Ilesha for two years then became Associate Pastor in 1999 in Efon Alaaye .To be an Evangelist is a gift from God .I am a Prophet /Evangelist by call but ordained as a CAC Pastor in 1999.
I was once a Courier then Baron now Man of God
”This is a very big question . I went through life . At the tender age of 19 I had been self-employed , traveled abroad and doing all sorts of business . I can say precisely that I am what I am today by the grace of God as per what I had gone through in life.
”I used to say that anybody that cannot relate with his past is not really a Born Again .
I met God
”Before I met Christ on the 5th of August 1996 I used to be a traveler to the USA, and several countries. I used to be an international business man, I deal with drugs traveling to USA several places , dealt with hard drugs like cocaine , I swallowed it to the USA and would escape it.I would sell it and come back to Nigeria.
I PASSED THROUGH MANY AIRPORTS
”There are several airports in the world , mostly I passed through JFK Airport severally in all the trips .God was precisely with me until I met God on the 5th of August 1996. I lived in hotel room for seven years in Lagos where I met God on that fateful day. He gave me three lashes and I woke up and with the instruction ”STAND UP, PACK YOUR LOAD AND GO HOME”. I stood up from my sleep , sat down and was wondering what was happening but the instruction kept on coming ”STAND UP, PACK YOUR LOAD AND GO HOME ”So I stood up packed my things and left the hotel room in Lagos , that was how I found myself in the seminary on the 5th of August in 1996 where I spent two years in training and by His Grace has remained steadfast in His vineyard .
The Man of God telling his story
”I went through a lot of journey of life .All those period I never knew God , I never had no reason to pray because there was no reason to pray about . I had money I had influence , there were women around me and I didn’t go to church .Though I am from a very very religious home .I am the only child of a woman who was a midwife for CAC church for 25years, very dedicated woman .I am a product of grace.
”During this period I was married with children .I had children .Nobody was aware of what I was doing .I never discussed my personal life with anybody , it was just between me and God.
When I heard such instruction that I should pack my things and go home .I went to my mother in Owo and told her . I said this was my experience … I was later ordained as a Pastor in 1999.
” While I was ..to the things of the world …I didn’t acquire much, I made my money and I spent it on women , I lived in hotel for seven years . I bought cars , I bought land and enjoyed myself my brother until the grace of God came into my life.
WHERE ARE THE PROPERTIES
”The properties?. We are talking about 18years ago ?. I lost all of them even my passport was stolen with visa to the USA , England, to Germany was stolen twice. It was dawning on me that the hands of God was working and finally struck.
”I didn’t go to school as such , but I have School Certificate which is the only visible certificate I had before I met Christ. Later I went through a lot of schools of Theology , today I have doctorate degree in Theology (Phd) . I don’t have much education .I speak good English by the grace of God.
‘Its not about being profitable , its never my dream to become a pastor but divine because I remember my mother told me she was barren for 18years and when she met a prophet who told her she would bear a son and the child would be a servant of God , must be given to God Immediately I am being weaned and come of age . So, when I was six years old I was given to a Pastor where I went to secondary school, and went away from the presence of God until I finally met God in 1996. Between 1976,77 to 1996 I never went to church.
TEMPTATIONS FROM WOMEN
”Yes , of course there was and is . Can you take temptation away from this work?, we are only being sustained by the grace of God , so like you said when I was much younger. I remember I was traveling from Murtala Mohammed Airport, Lagos to JFK when our plane broke up, one wing of the plane broke off,. we had to wait for 18hours in Lagos and I had about 700 grammes of cocaine in my stomach .Right there one or two women were chasing me , one was going to Texas , she had to stop in New York and went to my place in New Jersey, so the issue of women was a thing of pleasure in those days .Paul said ‘I am what I am by the grace of God ,he said ‘ yet not I but the grace of God’. So I want to thank God for His grace in my life.
”Whenever I arrived at my destinations I would go and lodge in an hotel then contact my customers.
”At a time I was a carrier for some prominent Nigerians then later I became a Baron myself, doing it for myself.
DAY OWOH,OJUOLAPE & OGEDEGBE WERE EXECUTED
”You are asking too many questions. I visited a lot of countries . I remember precisely this particular incidence , the very day that Idiagbon(the late Major General Tunde Idiagbon) killed Bartholomew , Ojuolape and Bernard Ogedengbe , I remember I traveled that night to deliver 400 grammes of cocaine (In Denmark) for I was already billed for that trip.I watched them being killed , and for the same offence these people committed were killed for I still traveled for the same offence I have a special grace. Ojuolape was the only child of an 85year -old- woman . I felt so bad about the death of the young man because the man was on bail that time before the Decree of the ’85 came out , they now rolled it back .Ojuolape was the only child of the old woman , they asked Idiagbon to leave her son because the boy was already on bail before the decree was enacted and he was roped in and was killed .It was sympathetic”
