Every cherubim and seraphim members would know this anointed man of God. Moses Orimolade Tunolase was born in the year 1879 into the family of Ayibiri in Ondo State of Nigeria. Moses could not stand nor walk until he was well over five years of age. His parents took him to St. Stephen’s Anglican church, the only church in the Yoruba town of Ikare in Western Nigeria at that time. Orimolade started his missionary work as a preacher in Ikare (his Yoruba town of birth) with no formal education. He publicly confronted and disgraced witches and wizards in Irun and pulled down the image of Osijora, one of the idols worshipped in the village.
Moses was said to have been a special person with a supernatural power. He would mysteriously get to where he and his group were going before anyone of them and they all get puzzled wondering how. Till he died nobody was able to unravel the mystery. Some white men who heard about his good works came to approach him to come and heal their boss in their country. Moses refused to go with them in the aircraft they brought and promised to meet them there. Before the white men got there, he had mysteriously gone and was back. When the messengers got to their boss and saw him healed and bouncing, he told them he had been healed by a man whom he described with the characteristics of Moses, the man they came to meet in Nigeria. He had the power as he used to pass through the rock and water while people wonder how he manage to perform such a feat.
