The World Headquarters of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, 34 Ambo Street, Calabar was lit in glitz and glamour recently as the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star, Akwa Ibom State, hosted the birthday Celebration in honour of the Prince of Heaven, Prince Olumba Olumba Obu.
The Weeklong Event, which encompassed a myriad of activities including a novelty match between Cross River State and Akwa Ibom State; singing competition; dedication and commissioning of Afahoku, Nung Ikot and Itam Bethels, amongst others, in Akwa Ibom State; attracted the presence of dignitaries from all walks of life within and outside the Fold.
Adding splendor to the event, were delightful performances from entertainers such as Rivers State Dollar Choir, the Ambo Children, cultural dancers, Comedian Arinze with rib cracking jokes, inter alia.
Asked on the motivation behind taking such a novel step, the Akwa Ibom State Administrator, Archbishop A. E. Archibong responded that “it is just the fulfilment of the plan of God. We know that at the fullness of time the Father will put everything in place. Whatever we did was not by our making but it was the Father in-charge and in control, He can use anybody at any time to fulfil whatever His Will is.”
The celebrant, Prince Olumba Olumba Obu, whose arrival was greeted with a standing ovation from the crowd, in response to all the eulogies, ascribed all Honour to the Holy Father, His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu.
The visibly elated and overwhelmed Prince thanked the Supreme Father for inviting the host of angels to celebrate him on such a special day, while expressing also his appreciation to brethren for celebrating Him.
“I want to thank Our Father, His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu for being such an amazing Mentor to me, infact to all of us, because Brotherhood children are shinning all over the world, spiritually and otherwise and for giving us the ability to be here today, I say thank You Father”. He went on to express his appreciation to other members of the Royal Family who, according to Him, have shown Him nothing but love and care.”
Addressing His children in reaction, Our Lord and King, His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu who expressed His joy at the celebration of the Prince, stated that this generation is indeed lucky to witness the crystallization of the divine promise of God to make His abode amongst men.
He thereafter rained heavenly blessings on Prince as quoted; “He is My dear son in whom I am well pleased. What trembles before Me shall tremble before him, what fears Me shall fear him, he has been wrapped in the Glory of My Power. I will honour the words of your mouth, I will bless those whom you bless. Those who wish to raise their voices or hands against the Prince, I will thread them down and trample them in My fury for what I have blessed no one has the power and authority to condemn”.
The Supreme God further declared that “his identity and mission can only be revealed by Me therefore all should rejoice and make merriment with him for his birth is indeed a blessing to humanity”.
To the facilitators and the entire brethren of Akwa Ibom state, the Supreme Monarch commended their efforts for hosting the event as He pronounced His ceaseless blessings upon them.
Thank You Father
