The Brotherhood of the Cross and Star (BCS) has fixed the anniversary of the coronation of the King of kings and lord of lords, His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu, on August 9th, 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Addressing newsmen at the headquarters of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star (BCS), the spokesman Patriarch, Christ Shepard Edet Archibong,, said the anniversary is normally marked every 14th of August but had to be shifted this year.
He said the coronation signified “the handing over of the kingdom to the king of kings and Lord of lords, His Holiness, Olumba Olumba Obu, to rule over and bring to perfection “.
According to him, “the prophesy is fulfilled when an extraordinary child was born in Biakpan in 1918 with powers of miracle which trailed him from; birth, unmatched intelligence, power and authority, mastery of the Bible which he has never been seen to read, not taught by anybody and having a godly lifestyle people thought he had a demon “.
He further revealled that “the Ancient of Days, leader Olumba Olumba Obu has given all power and authority to king of kings and lord of lords, His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu to rule the Kingdom of God of earth which God the Father, Leader Olumba Olumba established and named Brotherhood of the Cross and Star.”.
This he said, “is the fulfillment of the following bible prophecy, “for zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for juerusalems sake I will not rest, until the righteous thereof go fo%th as brightness, and the Salvation thereof as a lamb that burneth and the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness and all kings thy glory, and thought shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name”.
He went to say, “this task of the Son of God is corroborated thus, “for he must reign until he has put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death (“1Cor. 15:25-26).
Already, he added, “structures and institutions have been created for the dissemination of the message of the kingdom to various parts of the globe. Buildings, landed property and infrastructure are being provided. Business enterprises have been established to provide goods and services and employment to people without discrimination. Tourism, he said, is an area that is fast coming into focus as the Cross River State government is interested in partnering with the Kingdom in that respect.”.
The Christ Shepard, Archibong, also announced BCS in 2015 acquired over 35 hectares of land close to Tinapa in Calabar, Cross River State for the establishment of additional worship center treat, schools shopping mall, event centre etc.
The land, he added, will house the Olumba Supreme Temple for spiritual conceptualisation. Already construction work for the perimeter fencing Iin the land has been allocated to BCS formations in states of Nigeria and in various other countries
