Biography of Apostle Johnson Suleiman's you probably don't know


INTRODUCTION
Apostle Johnson Suleman is the President and General
Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, a church
which he established in 2004.
EARLY LIFE AND BACKGROUND
Few days after Apostle Johnson Suleman was born, story has
it that Prophets traveled all the way from Warri in Delta State
of Nigeria, to Benin in Edo State of Nigeria(Apostle Johnson
Suleman’s place of birth), armed with message from God.
When his parents inquired to know what the message was all
about, they were informed that God told the prophets that a
prophet that would minister in God's presence has been born.
Apostle Johnson Suleman’s parents refused to continue
listening to the prophets because they were Muslims and
could not understand the possibility of their son becoming a
Christian, let alone being God’s minister.
As the young Apostle Johnson Suleman began to grow, his
parents observed that he was somehow strange in the way he
did things. He values the things of God even as he attends the
mosque with his father. As young as he then was, he knew he
was not in a path he was meant to be. While he was doing his
secondary school in Auchi his home town, Apostle Johnson
Suleman had an encounter with CHRIST but he however
received a lot of pressures that made him to withdraw from
Christianity for a little while.
CAREER AND LIFE
However, Apostle Johnson Suleman later moved to Benin City
in Edo State, where he finally declared for CHRIST, and got
reconnected with his DESTINY. Immediately after that, Apostle
Johnson Suleman started hanging-out with his Christian
brothers, and accompanies them for work of evangelism and
prayers. On June 20, 1994 he got a revelation where he saw
the image of the globe being given to him with a biblical
inscription of Acts 10:38 written on it. Before this happened,
Apostle Johnson Suleman had read through the whole Bible
repeatedly for three good times because of his unquenchable
thirst for God. However, all the time he had studied he bible,
he never gave any particular attention to Acts 10:38.
Apostle Johnson Suleman arose from the vision, he was so
shocked, and immediately searched for his bible to check out
what the scriptures reveals. Upon opening the verse, he saw
that it contain the following sentence: "How God anointed
Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who
went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of
the devil, for God was with Him". He then immediately
understood that he had just been communicated the Mandate
given to him by God to preach his gospel around the world
with a Power Ministry. It is consequent upon the above that
his ministry, Omega Fire Ministries International was later
born.
Omega Fire Ministries International ‘s website has it that God
gave His chosen servant, Apostle Johnson Suleman, a divine
mandate to: clean the tears, have peoples’s destinies restored
by the preaching of the word, and bringing into manifestation
the power and reality of the Holy Spirit. They maintain that
God equally instructed His chosen Servant to bring to an end,
the affliction of His people by telling him “ I AM SENDING YOU
WITH AN OMEGA ANOINTING…”
The Omega Fire Ministries International was accordingly
brought into existence to restore the joy of men, making men
to manifest their destiny, thereby becoming the best that God
created them to be and reversing the wickedness of the
enemy.
Omega Fire Ministries International believes in the fire
operation of the Holy Spirit of God which refines, purifies and
at the same time destroys. The mission of Omega Fire
Ministries International is one that believes in judgment of
God on the wicked. The ministry believes that the oppressions
and demonic manipulations are reality, they know equally that
the authority of God’s power is more real, that it is all-
powerful and all-pervading.
Omega Fire Ministries International hold as true the belief that
all power belongs to God and that the devil and his cohorts
has no scriptural right to control and manipulate the destinies
of the children of God. They also believe that It is the right of
believers to live fulfilled life. Consequently, the ministry
believes it is saddled with the divine mandate to restore those
divine rights to believers.
THE APOSTLE SPEAKS MORE ABOUT HIMSELF IN AN
INTERVIEW BELOW:
You are always on the move around the world preaching the
gospel. What have been the experiences so far?
God has sent His servant to America, to the world, to bring
restoration and grace to all who would believe. Recently, the
world experienced he presence of God in America, as people
from all parts of America yearned for the great encounter.
Over the years, American cities like New York, Texas, Chicago,
Georgia, Maryland, Florida and several others have
experienced the power of God. It was Minnesota, three weeks
ago, and Philadelphia next. We were also in Sierra Leone after
the Minnesota experience. Next was Johannesburg in South
Africa, and next is Kigali, Rwanda. And God has promised us
these are also going to be fulfilling journeys in the life of the
hopeless and the downtrodden. As we move around the world
through His special grace, millions of people are being freed
from all evil foundations that temporarily hold on to their
glories, finances, health, spiritual life and family success.
Your ministry’s Celebration TV just marked its third
anniversary. How has the response been using a faith based
television channel to reach audiences?
We give all glory to God. We saw this vision passionately
spreading beyond Africa and it has come to be. We are
determined to keep on this blessed track and ensure souls
and lives are redeemed as far as technology can reach. The
aim for which the Celebration TV of our great ministry of God
was established is fulfilling. One of the core objectives is to
reach many homes across the world, wiping away tears and
restoring people back to their destinies through the revelation
of the Word and the manifestation of power and the reality of
the Holy Spirit. Celebration TV was established to take the
gospel into the homes, schools, offices and businesses of
millions across the nations. We are going to continue to use
this powerful tool for the gospel and expansion of the
Kingdom.
It was in the news that you have joined the league of pastors
who own private jets; is that true?
It is no crime for a man of God to have a private jet, if it is
meant to reach the world faster in spreading God’s mission.
But I don’t have one yet. The truth is that, I was given a
private plane as a gift about one month ago. But God told me
that the giver was not pure. So I rejected it. You may have
seen the pictures of the jet on the internet. In fact, I collected
it. But when I prayed over it and found out that the source of
the giver’s wealth wasn’t sincere, I politely turned it down.
Helping people has become a constant feature with you, even
as you heal people.
Is that the secret why you have so many followers?
To start with, one lesson is the value of time-tested methods.
Yes, using the new media for outreach contributes
significantly to attracting people to God. But the fact remains
that teaching the Word and having personal relationships by
way of sharing, are the most effective forms of publicity to
growing the church. Like I have always shared with people, I
have tasted poverty. I come from a very humble background.
This is what fires my passion for sharing with the less
privileged. We are not graceful with words of mouth; we are
also generous with other things that make life worth living for
a man. God understands the needs of man and He is ever
ready to provide those needs if man obeys His Word. We
regularly share cars worth several millions of Naira, cash gifts
and more. The latest is a brand new multimillion Naira
Mercedes car we gave out to a member.
