Apostle George Odoko has celebrated his birthday with the launch of his maiden book ” What is Wrong with My Face” in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.
The author who is also the president and founder of Heroes Palace International, located along Mbiama Road, Yenigwe is also noted for his prophetic accuracy and humility.
The Okoloba, Kolokuma-Opokuma born clergyman, gifted with the spirit of philanthropy is passionate at ensuring that Bayelsans no longer travel outside the state to seek spiritual solutions to their problems.
Apostle Odoko while giving an overview of the book, “What is Wrong with My Face” thanked God for the inspiration, wisdom and grace of bringing his vision of writing a book into reality, adding that Christains and non- Christsins would found the book useful.
According to him, ” I discovered that every time people go to Lagos, the Lagos airport is busy becauses of churches, TB Joshua is there and other great men of God are there. In Port Harcourt, I discovered that the airport is busy because of Pastor David Ibieomeye; in Warri the airport is busy because of one of our own Prophet Jeremiah Fufunye.
” I discovered that nobody travels to Bayelsa for ministry. Everybody travel out of Bayelsa to look for God. Just as if God has travelled out of Bayelsa. In Bayelsa where we are blessed with everything nobody travels to Bayelsa to look for God. And I begin to cry passionately for it, and God revealed to me that one of the things we Bayelsans face is our Face.
” In Genesis 1:1-2, the Bible says ‘ and darkness was upon the face of the deep’. I discovered that if a man’s Face is covered, his blessings will be limited, when a man’s face is covered no matter the degrees and connections, you may know the Governor but he may not favor you. A girl might be beautiful but when her Face is covered she may not have a husband. The Face is the most attractive point of man’s destiny”.
He said the book was written from years of practical experience in spiritual warfare, deliverance ministry and revelation from God, ” of a big truth it was my personal experience that I put into writing. I pray for people to be Governors, Senators but they will never favor me and they will begin to run away from me and I begin to ask God what is wrong with me and the Spirit of God said there is something covering your Face.
” They will remember you in the time of trouble but when it is time to favor you, they will not see you. And God gave me Genesis 1:1-2 .When your Face is covered your efforts are useless, your degrees will amount to nothing. So God said my son give them this revelation”.
The book reviewer and the Bayelsa State Commissioner for Education, Hon. Gentle Emelah said the book is made up of 76 pages written in simple English with six chapters- chapter one: Is my Face Covered? Chapter two- The place of a Prophet; chapter three- Mentality for Manifestation; chapter four- Prayer Alter; chapter five- The Word of God and chapter six- Take it by Force.
Emelah said people are going through failure, rejection, disappointments , near success syndrome because their Faces have been covered, adding that when your Face is covered all your efforts, degrees and beauty will amount to nothing.
He said the author poured out his heart in course of writing the book and advised readers not to see the book as a piece of literary work but read it with spiritual understanding, noting that the book has solutions to problems of their covered Faces if they will religiously applying the principles contained in the book.
