TRIBUTE TO My Quintessential FATHER AND PECULIAR TREASURE, SPIRITUAL LEADER AND CHAIRMAN OF CHERUBIM & SERAPHIM MOVEMENT CHURCH WORLDWIDE
HIS GRACE, LATE BABA ALADURA PROPHET SAMUEL ADEFILA ABIDOYE JP BY SPECIAL APOSTLE PROPHET ZACCHEAUS EMMANUEL
This tribute is Baba’s right because he deserves it! It is difficult for me to come to terms with the fact that you are gone-My Father, my Encourager, my Leader-a Visionary Leader indeed. You were an example of humility and love of Christ which manifested through your accommodation of the Youth, in which I am one.  You were greatness personified, a man of bundle of inspiration, a man full of the grace of God, a godly man that embraced the youth of my type, you were a man who exhumed greatness, love and care like a fountain. A great ICON, well focused and purposeful!  You made everyone happy and you mentored a good number of us into greatness. You were not only great, you made all of us great as well. I thank God for the life while spent.
His Performance Development Plan for Cherubim & Seraphim Movement Church. You were the Joshua of our time, your contributions to Seraph’s development was first class. Without doubt, Baba Aladura Prophet Samuel Adefila Abidoye was a great visionary leader who brought us to our Promise land “Galilee”. Baba Aladura Abidoye was a Performance Manager. His words were specific, measurable, accurate, realistic and timely. He usually hit the target. No doubt he was prompt to quickly whisk the church to Galilee when God spoke and directed. We are all living witnesses to the tremendous and outstanding transformation that has behoved the church in the past 18years. of his tenure as Baba Aladura of Cherubim & Seraphim Movement Church Worldwide Ayo
Ni O. The church will miss you indeed, but my family and I will miss you the most. I will not forget. the period when we were together in Galilee. I will miss your counsels, I will miss your smiles, I will definitely miss the way we chat together, and you will forever live on in my heart. Baba, you will forever be remembered by CSMC Worldwide for the record breaking as a trailblazer in general, and you will be most remembered by me-Prophet Zaccheaus Abioye
Emmanuel and family in particular. Sleep on, Baba Aladura Samuel Adefila Abidoye till the resurrection morning.
May God forgive his shortcomings. Goodbye! Goodbye!!Goodbye!!! In grief, but with gratitude to God,

OUR PAPA WAS A GREAT PROPHET AND A LOVING FATHER TO ALL AT ALL TIMES. THAT FAITHFUL DAY AT D MOUNTAIN AT ORILE IGBON WHEN HE WAS PRONOUNCED A PROPHET AND SUBSEQUENTLY ORDAINED A PROPHET OF D MOST HIGH I WENT TO RECEIVE A SPECIFIC PRAYER FROM HIM AND HE LAID HIS HAND ON MY HEAD BEFORE HE LEFT D MOUNTAIN THAT EVENING. HIS PRAYERS WERE VERY EFFECTIVE THAT D GREAT LORD ANSWERED HIS PRAYERS ON ME. AM ONE OF D LUCKIEST AS I RECEIVE PRAYERS FROM HIM AT LEAST TWICE IN A YEAR— MAY AT MOUNT HOREB AND NOVEMBER DURING D CONFERENCE. NO DOUBT OUR FATHER IS WITH OUR LORD JESUS’CHRIST WITH A HIGHER RESPONSIBILITY. I PRAY WE WILL SEE AGAIN AT D END OF TIME IN JESUS PRECIOUS NAME —AMEN AND AMEN.

My darling Spiritual Father is gone.
How can I forget the person who called me to work with him as the Chairman Budget & Planning for our great church C&S Movement Church Ayo NIO for Ten years?
Frankly speaking, he treated me like a son; gave me his agape love and sweet compassion. He appreciated my job, adhered to my advices, suggestions, views etc . And if in doubt would call me to ask for explanations without thinking of the age gap and wide heirachy between us.
Very intelligent, kind hearted, educated, upright Spiritual Father with exemplary conduct, behavior, manner worthy of emulation. A patriarch, a spiritual father we were proud of who would call a spade a spade.
I learnt a lot from him which will be indelible in mind for life. He lifted AYO NIO to great heights and made our Church a shinning example among it’s peers.
Oh Lord death has done it’s worst and we have no power to retain him .
Sleep well, surely your soul will rest in Peace. God will forgive all your iniquities and the Most High will grant you Grace of Paradise in Jesus Name…. AMEN.
ADIEU OUR GREAT DADDY!!!

In the hallowed echoes of time’s passage, we lament the departure of His Grace, Prophet Samuel Adefila Abidoye, a beacon of faith who graced our mortal realm until the waning months of 2023. His journey, a tapestry woven with threads of unwavering faith, bestowed upon us almost unmatchable milestones and authentic generational legacies.

Oh, noble shepherd of the spiritual flock, your zealous strides in the vineyard of the divine were extraordinary, etching a testament of dedication and fervor in the annals of the faithful. Your quest for church growth was not merely a task but a sacred calling, leaving an indelible mark that will resonate through the corridors of time, a lesson for generations yet unborn.

As you ascend to the celestial abode, joining the saints who have gone before, we, your spiritual sons and daughters, find solace in the anticipation of a joyous reunion in the realms of eternal bliss. Farewell, His Grace, Prophet Samuel Adefila Abidoye, till we meet again in the celestial embrace of Heaven’s glory.

Baba Aladura, His Grace Prophet Dr. Samuel Adefila Abidoye was a great Man of vision, he was a builder, he was a man full of wisdom of coordinating human and material resources in an excellent way, which really helped him to achieve a great level of success and development in his time as the Baba Aladura of CSMC, I pray the good foundation he laid never get destroyed.

Special Apostle Dr. Timothy Tanko Ayyia (JP)

The Installation of Baba S. A. Abidoye, as the 5th Spiritual Father of our Great Church, has brought about great discoveries in the Movement Church. I am one of such discoveries. He carefully search for and found me from the far minority Northern Nigeria, to occupy the exalted position of General Secretary, Evangelical Ministry and later a Evangelical Council. A position I diligently did my best within the ambit of my ability.

Papa Abidoye was my mentor, Teacher, Insparator and Spiritual Navigator who gave me all I needed to grow in the service of the Lord and the Movement Church in particular. He raised and held the ladder for my greatness in the Evangelical Arena. It is my faithful prayers that the ladder Papa Abidoye raised for the Church and my humble self to remained standing that I may clime in the service of God Almighty.

I remained your “Auta” (last born) in the North; even after your transition to Glory. We shall meed at the Marriage super some day in Jesus name.

Special Mother Prophetes B Olaniyan

Baba, you have done your best, we love but God love you more, you’re very down to earth, firm , honest, you say things as you see it, and I emulate you for that, whenever I had met you, you were never partial, you don’t discriminate, you make people feel part of the team, your legacy lives on as you sleep. Continue to rest until we meet at the bosom of our Lord Jesus Christ

YOUR COMING TO LONDON WAS TO STUDY PHOTOGRAPHY. YOU BECAME A LAWYER. YOU DID NOT PRACTISE YOUR LEGAL PROFESSION. YOU BECAME A WORKER IN THE VINEYARD OF GOD.
MANY PEOPLE DID NOT KNOW THAT YOU’RE A LAWYER. YOU BECAME A FISHER OF MEN/WOMEN. YOUR DEDICATION AS A FISHER OF MEN/FEMALE WAS LARGER THAN YOUR EXPECTATIONS.

I THANK GOD FOR GIVING YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO BRING SMILES TO WARDS PEOPLE WHO NEVER BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF PRAYERS.
I THANK GOD ALMIGHTY FOR HIS FAVOURS TO WARDS YOU. IF AND WHEN PEOPLE TALK ABOUT YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS TO WORKING IN THE VINEYARD OF GOD ALMIGHTY IN EUROPE AND WORLDWIDE YOU WILL BE A SECOND TO NONE.
I GIVE GLORY TO GOD ALMIGHTY THAT YOU LIVED A FULFILLED LIFE.

Baba, you have selflessly impacted us and many over the world
Out of your mouth flows God’s word
You are filled with wisdom
and always propagating God’s kingdom
You’re so noble and always showing your inner worth
Like biblical Paul, the good fight you have forth
This is our consolation;
you have experienced God’s salvation
Absent in the world
and now with Lord

ADIEU Our Beloved Daddy!!!

Raji Joy Aina

To a dear and darling father indeed, a rare gem

Baba was a loving father to all his children in the fold, he proved to be a good listener not minding if he is older as long as it’s for a good course.

Baba was someone we could say that he was a product of change, his orientation and believe in new ideas is top notch and worthy to emulate because he doesn’t let them slide or dead.

Another amazing thing about him was his tolerant nature, he was not man that would require much protocols before you meet him.

One of the greatest thing I have learnt from him is the the spirit of relentlessness to the point of heavenly call, he never relent even if he is tired rather he will keep the work going.

If I say I will miss him, then I haven’t learn from him, but I will say that he will forever be in my heart so that he will be proud of his children on earth as a youth. You deserve a befitting rest Baba Aladura Abidoye and that is why your creator has called you to rest in his bosom.
