How a mighty Angel rescued Apostle Babalola in 1929 by Aduralere Oluwagbohunmi

In early days of his ministry, Babalola’s most trying time came when the Lord instructed him to take the good news to his hometown in Odo Owa, Kwara State. The Lord told him how to dress and what to do when he gets to his hometown.

He was divinely instructed to go to the town on a market day naked but cover his body with palm fronds and disfigure his face with ashes and charcoal paints in order to get the attention of his people.

He obeyed the voice of the Spirit and conducted the first Holy Ghost inspired revival in his town. In his words:‘……The Spirit told me to go to my hometown where I was born. The Lord said I should rub my face with ashes and to carry palm leaves in my hand and to buy a bell, which I was to be ringing the moment I entered the town. And I obeyed. The voice told me to tell my people that unless they repented, evil beasts would enter the town to destroy them. On that same day I entered the town with a bell in my hand, the entire town was moved and there was great stir and consternation as people fled when they saw me. The Voice told me to ring the bell in my hand round the town and I obeyed.”

However, the people of his town rejected him and his message. Instead, they beat him, molested his family and persecuted his younger sisters. During his evangelical tour of his town, Babalola prophesied that the Lord will send a beast that would destroy them if they failed to repent and accepted Christ as their Lord and Saviour. Rather than yielding to the voice of the Lord, the Community foolishly summoned the hunters to mount the boundary of the community to guide against the beast and to kill it if it eventually happens.

The Lord surprised them all. After the expiration of 45 days given by Apostle Babalola, an epidemic of Small Pox broke out in the town and within 21 days, the epidemic killed more than 300 persons. Those who ran to Apostle Babalola for healing received their healing but the rebellions died as a result of this ‘spiritual beast’.

Apostle Babalola continued his ministry in Kwara state but many people got offended by his teaching. They conspired against him and reported him to the Muslim ruler, the Emir of Ilorin, and then to the District Officer of Ilorin. He was put in custody for two weeks without any charges professed against him. When the allegation could not be proven, he was released and he came back to Odo-Owa.
Having failed to get rid of him through legal means, his people at Odo Owa decided to kill him through diabolical power. In his own personal testimony:
“…….The people of my town conspired together to kill me. They summoned a meeting of the elders of the town to seek for ways to kill me. One juju man boasted to them that he was going to kill me within 7 days. Around this time, I had not completed the 19-day fasting I was embarking on. The second day after this occultic man boasted that he was going to kill me; I went out in good health to preach the gospel in the centre of the town. As I was going I saw up to 200 evil spirits short in stature shouting behind me."

"Also I saw a big snake with feathers with its mouth opened against me and coming towards me. Just before this snake could hit me a mighty angel came between me and the snake with a sword in his hand and he destroyed the snake. The voice then said to me to continue to ring the bell on those evil spirits shouting behind me and when I did this they all ran away.”
