Reverential man of God, Prophet Israel Oladele Ogundipe, the shepherd-in-charge of Genesis Model International, a parish of Celestial Church of Christ, CCC, has added another feather to his cap.
The prophet was awarded the Most Outstanding Prophet of the Year on Sunday, December 8, 2013 by Icon Weekly Magazine.
Genesis as the prophet is fondly called received the award during Sunday morning service before hundreds of worshippers at the church’s ultra-modern auditorium located at Dalemo, Alakuko, Lagos.
In his speech while presenting the award to the man of God, Mr. Julius Akpovire, the editor-in-chief of the magazine said the award was to honour and inspires the quintessential seer for his eclectic spiritual principles and gift, miracles and good deeds.
He said: “For so long, we have been following his ministry and great works and without doubt, we have seen that he is the only Celestial church of Christ prophet that doesn’t go to stream or river for spiritual cleansing like we used to have in other celestial parishes. Apart from this, we are also aware of the wonders and signs God has been using him to accomplish. His philanthropic gesture, support to humanity and many good deeds are some of the criteria that prompted us to bestow on him this award amidst competition.”
On the other hand, the ever-smiling prophet thanked the organizers for the honour and promised to remain steadfast and faithful to his calling. “I can’t thank you enough for this. I thank God for using me and the ministry to accomplish his dreams; we are just mere mortal in His hands. And as long as He wants it, we would continue in the same spirit,” he said.
This is the seventh time the prophet would be awarded this year. So, far, he has won the Global News Leadership Award, Nigeria Media Nite-Out Award amongst others.
