How Archbishop Benson Idahosa foretold his death before he was called home to glory
Benson Idahosa was a gospel legend. During his years of service, He touched so many lifes.
According to his story, he said when he gave his life to Christ a lot of things happened and that God showed him some visions. In one of the visions God showed him a big dry tree with branches that had no leaves but it had branches and God put him under the tree.
When he lifted up his eyes he saw an old woman carrying a huge load and he got up from under the tree to help that woman to where she was going and there was a tiny leaf on the tree after he had rendered the help.
He saw another person and he helped the person and there was another leaf on the tree. The more he helped, the more the tree had leaves. And God told him that the more he helped people the more he will get protection and shade and he opened his eyes.
When you are called of God, He gives you the boldness you need to withstand anything. When God called him, for 14 days he went round Benin City praying and asking God to take the city for the gospel.
Benin was so bad then that if a native doctor told you; you would die by 2 o’clock there is nothing you can do about it except you run to Christ because that thing will surely happen.
When Benson Idahosa finished the 14 days marathon prayer round the city he started a small fellowship with students all over the place.
Benson Idahosa died in March. Before then, in February he called his wife and said, ‘Margaret, I think I have done everything God had asked me to do’. And the wife said it is because we were still in February and that because he had not traveled. She said he needed to travel and if he did that he would come back with a fresh idea. And he said he would travel in March and that he would be by himself and will not interact with anybody.
In March of that year, his wife was preparing to return from her trip abroad when she got a call from Nigeria that her husband, who was healthy had gone home. That, to her was a great shock. Before he died, he had preached a message titled The benefit of death and he preached so hard and made death so useless. He made it clear to everyone that he had finished the work God gave him in that message.
The day he died, he preached at the Bible School before he went to lunch with a team from Oral Roberts University.
He gave instruction to all the members of the team and they were all glued to him! After a while a gentle breeze was blowing and everybody set their gaze on him.
He was saying thank you Jesus and those on the table thought he was praying and they all closed their eyes and started saying thank you Jesus along with him but suddenly they did not hear anything again and one of the team members opened his eyes and found out that archbishop was gone.
They tried all they could to revive him but he was gone. He was not sick. He never had high blood pressure. He was never down. Each time he returned from foreign trips doctors were always there to check his blood pressure. Even the doctors were surprised that he died because he was not sick at all.
