First Lady Rev. Prophetess Deborah
Rev. Prophetess Dr. Deborah O. Ilesanmi was born in Lagos State, Nigeria. Since the age of five, God has had a great and mighty presence in her life. He did not allow her to fall sick or fall into the wrong hands and has continuously spared her from many dangers and spiritual attacks. She has a unique spiritual and physical union with the Lord, which encompasses hearing God’s voice clearly, having visions and dreams, comprehending hidden meanings, speaking in tongues, being able to translate messages from the spiritual into the physical realm, and recognizing the existence of Christ and His angels.
Her family brought her up in a Methodist church. However, she felt the need to attend a Pentecostal church where she could pray more and become more equipped with the knowledge of the Lord. During her encounters with the Lord, He revealed to her she would be His servant, precisely a “prophetess.” She will be an instrument of winning souls and a messenger of deliverance for those in captivity.
While following God, she met her husband (Apostle Olawale Philip Ilesanmi). They married with barely anything. They lived in a place with no beds, chairs, or windows, and they slept on the floor for one and a half years before God delivered them from their situation. Despite their humble beginnings, together they founded “The Call of Salvation and Deliverance Ministries.” She currently serves and oversees the Women’s Ministry and International Affairs Department.
In 2005, Bishop Timothy A. Johnson of the Minnesota Church Ministries Association had the honor of ordaining Rev. Prophetess Dr. Deborah O. Ilesanmi and her husband, Apostle Dr. Olawale Philip Orijajogun Ilesanmi. He ordained her as Rev. Prophetess, and he ordained her husband as an Apostle. God has used her and her husband to positively affect the lives of many people, both at home and abroad. Through the power of prayer and God’s anointing through her and her husband, countless people have been saved, baptized, healed, liberated, and freed from their bondage. She firmly believes that the Lord, who has begun a good work within her, will bring it to completion when Jesus Christ returns.
Rev. Prophetess Dr. Deborah O. Ilesanmi is a devoted wife, mother, and Rev. prophetess. She currently lives in Maryland with her husband and three blessed children who are also servants of the Lord.
