In the Name and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ – Amen
Now and forevermore, Amen.
Gentlemen of the Press,
I have the mandate of the Holy Father His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu, King of kings and Lord of lords, to address this Press Conference on the 2016 Celebration of the Divine Manifestation of Leader Olumba Olumba Obu, the Sole Spiritual Head of the Universe.
I wish to extend the divine felicitations of the Holy Father to the Gentlemen of the Press and all the brethren here present.
The aim of this Press Conference is to draw the attention of the public to the above named weeklong celebration which kick starts today and will culminate in the grand finale on Saturday the 30th of December 2016.
The slogan for this year’s celebration is “1918: Behold the Ancient of Days”.
Birth of an Extraordinary Child
On the 30th of December, 1918, a male child was born to the family of Olumba in Biakpan, in what is now Biase Local Government Area of Cross River State, south-eastern Nigeria. Some strange happenings around Him right from His birth made people take special note of Him as an extra-ordinary child. One of the numerous incidents was that a blind woman, Onori Eke Oko, on carrying the baby had her sight restored.
These strange happenings made the parents of the baby to recall some dreams which were revealed to some indigenes of Biakpan: Madam Otom Eggan Otim Osim and Mr. Enun Nkpa.
In her dream, Madam Otom saw a large multitude of people of many races and colour, dressed in white garments. They were on a procession, dancing and singing various songs in various languages which she could not understand. She could only understand the one rendered in Biakpan language which was interpreted as thus: “The King of kings is come like fire, He will come like the storm, He will come like the thunder. All powers in heaven and on earth have been surrendered unto Him. There is great joy, joy, joy in heaven and on earth.”
In his dream, Mr. Enun Nkpa saw the roof of his room open and a shining ball of light descended into the room shinning brighter as it approached. As it rested on the wall a voice was heard saying: “He has arrived! Go and inform the Family of Olumba that the word of God by name Olumba Olumba Obu will be born into their family. The world will regard Him as an impostor but He is my beloved Son. All my angels will serve Him and He will rule the world with love. Be not afraid I am with you.”
As the child grew He continued to perform wonderful feats to the amazement of the people, a few of which are:
– By his pronouncement at age four a barren woman became fruitful and eventually became a mother of many children.
– At school age He was enrolled in school, but had to leave because He was teaching His teachers who were no match for His intelligence.
– At age five He raised a girl who had died, back to life.
The Establishment of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star
As a young man He left Biakpan to settle in Calabar, the administrative and commercial headquarters of His part of the country. His fame grew as He ministered healing to people by the spoken words and took care of their financial needs. He preached peace and love to all He came across. He started a worship centre at 8 Eton Street, Calabar in 1956.
As membership increased there was a need to register the organization which He named ‘’Brotherhood of the Cross and Star’’ (BCS).The organization was registered with the government as the law required, but not before being turned down twice because the description of the BCS as the New Kingdom of God on earth was objected to. On the third attempt, however, it was accepted even with that description. The Certificate of Incorporation was issued in 1964.
In the name ‘Brotherhood of the Cross and Star’, ‘’Brotherhood’’, as found in 1Peter 2:17 stands for the whole of creation and the creator, ‘’Cross’’ symbolises the pain, agony and sacrifice made by Our Lord Jesus Christ. The ‘’Star’’ as found in Revelation 22:16 symbolises the triumph of Christ over death and His reign. Put in another way ‘’Brotherhood of the Cross and Star’’ means creation that has been reunited with God the Creator through the death and resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Leader O.O.Obu, in His sermon on His mission on earth, had this to say, “My mission is to establish the new Kingdom of God that the will of God may be done on earth as it is done in heaven.” (The Everlasting Gospel vol. 1, chapter 77 verse 70).
Olumba Olumba Obu: His Qualities
Leader Olumba Olumba Obu is humble to a fault. He would be found sweeping the compound himself. He would offer the visitor a chair and sit on the floor. He washes the feet of His disciples. He treats everybody with respect both great and small.
His simplicity is legendary. He wears no shoes or any adornments as wristwatches, chains or rings. He rides no car and does not own any.
He is very selfless and kind. He would go round at the early stage visiting His adherents, praying for them and solving their financial problems from His own recourses. (He was a successful trader). Those who trespassed on His land to erect buildings He did not confront or challenge.
He does not get annoyed. People call Him all sorts of evil names, attribute His power to the devil (same as was done to Christ) and fabricate all sorts of malicious stories about Him but he does not utter any bad words against them or show any ill feelings towards them. His good qualities cannot be exaggerated.
He ministers round the clock, does not fall sick or take a leave. For Him fasting is the rule while eating is the exception. He is a strict vegetarian.
Super-human Attributes and Power
He is a man of authority. All principalities and powers obey Him. The mere mention of His name strikes fear into the minds of His adversaries. His authority and influence even transcend the physical world. There are numerous testimonies to attest to this. That is why some people attribute His power to the devil as was done to Christ.
Religious authorities, astrologers and ordinary folks in different parts of the world testify to the great power and super human nature of Leader O.O.Obu. A few of these are related here:
1. Aggarwal, a Professor of Natural Science, an occult master and a Hindu from India published an article in an Indian newspaper, ‘’The National Herald’’ in New Delhi, in its issues of 12th February, 1982, captioned, “The Supreme Being and Teacher of the Universe.” He reported that the Holy Spirit was dwelling on earth with men in human form and was teaching all men to love one another, to repent and follow righteousness for the end was at hand. He further revealed that the Hindus had been expecting this tenth and final incarnation of the Supreme Spirit.
2. Mrs Beverly Mart, an American from Los Angeles, California, narrated her encounter at the age of 3 with a black man who came to teach her about God and would walk down the street in a red garment. The man told her about the New Kingdom of God and his abode in Calabar, Nigeria. In 1977 she visited Calabar and was greatly astonished to find that the person she met in the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star was the very same man who taught her in California. He even recalled the experience Himself! (He has never travelled outside Calabar).
3. Over 500 years ago, Michael De Nostradamus a.k.a. ‘the man who saw tomorrow’ predicted thus: As the world nears its end, Dominion would change to the Black race. And there would be born one who makes Thursday His Holy Day. He will lead a great people by word and deed and he will have fame and renown above others’’.
From childhood Leader O.O.Obu was called “Teacher” because He even taught His teachers in His two years of primary school. He had delivered thousands of sermons, Bible class lectures and Alter briefs. He practices what He teaches.
The BCS is also known as Christ Universal Spiritual School of Practical Christianity. A Kingdom and a school. A fulfilment of the prophecy of Isaiah found in Isaiah 2:2-4.
Leader O. O. Obu has debunked the practice of regarding Friday as the day our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified and buried. He has taught rather that Christ was crucified and buried on a Thursday in fulfilment of the sign He gave to the Pharisees as prove of His deity. Christ had this to say “For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” Matt. 12: 40
Thursday to Saturday night contains three days and three nights. He resurrected on the early hours of Sunday before sunrise. Accepting any other day will make Christ a liar! To show how important the day Christ was crucified is, Leader O. O. Obu has made Thursday a holy day in BCS where the entire members fast from 6 am to 6 pm.
Handing over of the Kingdom
In Daniel’s vision the Ancient of Days gave the Kingdom to the Son of man (Dan. 7:14). Leader O.O.Obu has handed the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star to His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu who is firmly in charge in the Kingdom. He has established His government known as the Unified Universal Theocratic Government complete with seal (coat of arms), anthem and creed (pledge). These are instruments of governance.
Recently, the Unified Universal Theocratic Council has been set up as the executive arm of the government.
His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu is ruling with love, patience, tolerance and humility to lead the Kingdom to perfection where all vices will be done away with (see 1st Corinthians 15:24-28).
The name Olumba Olumba Obu is powerful. When this name is invoked things happen, even in the dream. There are testimonies of people faced with problems or difficult situations and at the invocation of that name the situation is miraculously reversed.
“Olumba” and “Obu” (Ogbu) are names that are commonly borne by the Igbo speaking ethnic group of Nigeria and affiliates.
OLUMBA, an igbo word, has two parts to it: OLU and MBA. “Olu” means voice and voice is the sound made by uttering words. Therefore voice could be used to mean word or utterance. Olu therefore means voice, utterance or word. “Mba” means a people, nation, group or creation. OLUMBA means the word or voice of the people. There is a common saying: “the voice of the people is the voice of God”. Exchanging ‘word’ for ‘voice’: “The word of the people is the word of God.” OLUMBA therefore means “The word of God.”
OBU – the word ‘obu’ is an adulteration of ‘ogbu’ which is an igbo word meaning: the one who smites, the Vanquisher, the conqueror, the triumphant one, the Victor.
John the Divine saw someone who “was clothed with vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called “The Word of God” (Rev. 19: 13). ‘Olumba’ means the Word of God.
In verse 15 John further wrote “And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations” (Rev. 19: 15). This Being, which was seen here, smites the nations with the sword from His mouth, which is the word. ‘Ogbu’ or ‘Obu’ means the one who smites. “Olumba Obu” taken together then means: “The Word of God, The One who smites”. Substituting these Igbo words in the passage, Rev. 19: 13 would read thus: “…and His name is called Olumba (the Word of God)” while Rev. 19: 15 would read thus: “…with it he should smite the nations.” (This is what an Ogbu or Obu does). These igbo words aptly describe He who sat on the white horse that John saw (Rev. 19: 11).
Who is this man; Olumba Olumba Obu?
We have seen that before Leader Olumba Olumba Obu was born, there were revelations in form of dreams about His coming. We have also seen the miracles that happened when He was a baby and the ones He performed as an infant. We have seen that He has been a teacher even in His short enrolment in primary school where He taught the teachers and His peers. We have seen that He goes about doing good and His way of life is such that no ordinary human can practice. His life style can only be described as Godly. We have seen the qualities of God in Him. We have heard the testimonies about the power in His name. He is seen physically in many places at the same time and He influences happenings even in the spiritual realm. These are superhuman feats. We have noted all the testimonies and predictions about Him from far and wide across the continents. He is an Edomite (Edom was trans located to Africa as found in 1 Kings 11: 15 -19) whose followers are arrayed in white robes, whose official robe is the red garment, who ministers unto people with the word day and night. We have seen one whose name means the “Word of God” and “The One who smites”. WHO IS THIS MAN?
Dear people of God, there is no ordinary human being in whom all these Biblical prophecies can be fulfilled, and in whom are found all these qualities of God except the Most High Himself. Therefore, in all humility and with the greatest sense of responsibility, I do hereby declare that Leader Olumba Olumba Obu is the Ancient of Days that was to come and who has come, the personified Comforter, the Spirit of Truth and God the Father who Has manifested in human form in fulfillment of the Scriptures! God Has come down as the Comforter to teach His people His ways and in so doing established His Kingdom on earth (Isaiah 2:2-3). He has given the Kingdom to the Son of Man who is now reigning. The Son of man is His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu.
The prophecies about the establishment of the New Kingdom of God and the Second Advent of Christ have been fulfilled.
