The Call Out History
The Vision of T.A.P.S was given on Friday 11 August 2000 when three people including Brother Moses Joseph, another Brother and I were praying around 12 noon. I had no job then and we were praying on my letters of application and my court case Maersk Nigeria Limited. Suddenly, I heard the word in my ear. ”Ark of Praise” and a banner of naval soldiers in old British white military uniform with red straps appeared on a boat upon a river to me. I told them and since then it became a seed in my heart.
On Saturday March 1st 2014, the call-forth of TAPS was made at a small ceremony in my house by our Father in the LORD, Pastor Wole Oladiyun of the Christ Livingspring Apostolic Ministry (CLAM) at 4pm. It was well attended. Ever since then, I and my own nuclear family were meeting every Saturday at the exact hour to pray on this seed, seeking the face of the LORD on what to do next.
On June 11, 2014, my wife and I approached our father-in-the LORD, the General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry where I was from 1998 – 2014, who is now the GRAND FATHER OF TAPS (GFT), DR. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya and told him of this vision and mission of God. He told us that we should allow him to pray and confirm from God. On August 4, 2014 he called me to see him on Monday 11 August, 2014 at 9am. My family and I went to see him and he prayed for us, releasing us to the Ministry. He gave us the staff of office which was a bottle of Anointing Oil. On Thursday Sept. 4, 2014, when I went to submit my handing over report, he called me again and prayed with me and thus the release of T.A.P.S. Again on 15th September, he prayed for me and my wife and called on the God of Elijah that works with him and MFM to begin to work with me and TAPS
On 11th September 2014, at the STRONG TOWER MOUNTAIN ISEYIN, TAPS was dedicated to heaven at exactly 1.00am midnight through the prompting of the Holy Spirit. This was done by Baba and Mama Adeagbo (Mama Ogo) of the Strong Tower CAC Ministry.
The first service of TAPS was held in my sitting room on Sunday the 7th September 2014. On Monday 15 September 2014, we went to give our GFT, Dr. D.K Olukoya the first fruit of TAPS i.e. our first offering which was collected on 7th September 2014 at our first Sunday service. He prayed extensively this time, holding our heads and calling on the God of Elijah to work with us in TAPS. It was at this point that he gave us the scripture of our faith with which TAPS should be encouraged to work the work of HIM that has called us.
Luke 12:32. “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
This is our militant confidence working word in TAPS.
TAPS IS THEREFORE A PHENOMENON. IT IS NOT A CHURCH BUT A MOVEMENT OF SPIRITUAL SOLDIERS ON THE WARFRONT OF LIFE.
