Prophet Hezekiah Oladeji has been named as the new General Evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church, the selection was made after the retirement of Prophet Samuel Abiara, who lately reached the age of 75.
Following the fresh crash of Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi and his ex- wife, Olori Wuraola’s 17-month old marriage,popular Ifa Traditionalist, Playwright, Actor and Author, Yemi Elebuibon who spoke to SUN has stated ex-Olori Wuraola, must necessarily go through appropriate traditional cleansing process to allow her to regain normal life.
In recent times, the main purpose of the Aso ebi uniform is to serve as a means of identification with a group of people like, brides family or friends during any special occasion most especially wedding ceremonies. Ankara and lace are the most often used asoebi clothes for weddings. The word Aso Ebi originated from the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria but now practiced by other African countries where they are also called Asoebi. Literally Aso Ebi is derived from two words Aso meaning cloth and Ebi meaning family. So Aso ebi simply means Family cloth or uniform
The Aso Ebi does not only make one identify with their group but also makes the occasion colorful and can be a measure to check uninvited guests. In this particular parable of the banquet found in Matt 22:8-13 Jesus identified someone that gatecrashed into a wedding event without an Asoebi or wedding clothes/uniform identity. The invitation had been made, guests were already sited when this happened…
“But when the king came in to see the guests, he spotted a man who was not dressed in wedding clothes. ‘Friend,’ he asked, ‘how did you get in here without wedding clothes?’ But the man was speechless.
Then the king told the servants, ‘Tie him hand and foot and throw him outside into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Matthew 22:11-13
Note that the culprit is not the bride, groom or maids but a guest. We all know that when guests wear a particular uniform in which they are identified with in a wedding, it is called asoebi.
I recently read of churches banning the use of asoebi, well the reason is somehow justifiable as Pastor Folu Adeboye noted that it is causing segregation in the church and those who can not afford it are often exempt from events. This is understandable since love should guide all our rules. But as for whether it is scriptural, we can see that it is-it didn’t originate from the world

They have been married for 50 years!
This morning I went down to get my trouser amended, prior to going I had about 5,000 naira in the pocket of this said trouser and I totally forgot I had put it in there last night. Fast forward I went to an Hassan multipurpose shop near my street where they amended clothes, shoes and bags and gave the trouser to one to amend whilst I waited.
When he was there I went home and tested the trouser on my body, then I dipped my hand into my pockets and at that moment I remembered I had put some money there last night but lo and Behold there wasn’t any money in there anymore. It was crazy as I sped immediately with the trouser still on back to the shop, one arriving back there I couldn’t find the man who amended my trouser. I asked his colleagues about him but they said he had left then I complained to them that the cloth he amended for me had some money in it but I couldn’t find it anymore. They told me they had seen no money but that he had already left. Dang! This man has claimed sharp on me and zoomed off with my money and I was resigning to fate, he came strolled back to the shop from wherever he went to and I couldn’t recognize him but the other hausa men spoke some hausan to him and then told me he’s the one.. I told him i had some money in the trouser he amended but after shaping I couldn’t find the money…
Love and Behold, he dipped his hand in his pocket and told me he picked it on the floor that it must have fallen while I was removing the cloth from my body after testing his work. He handed back the 5,000 naira to me.
The honesty of this Muslim fella has made my Sunday already and I couldn’t help but wonder, how many of we Christians can actually do this. I know certain people who probably would have shared that money amongst themselves the moment they saw it and all connive to say they didn’t see it when I had returned to complain.
THE good is not by claiming we are God – fearing, it’s by our deeds.
This is a true story and happened to me minutes ago, Happy Sunday Guys.
