HOTEL ADONAI - THE STORY BEHIND THE CHRISTIAN HOTEL
HISTORY BEHIND THE NAME:
The Lord spoke to me to build Him a house where Preachers, Missionaries, Evangelists who happen to be in Ghana will have a place to stay, and Preachers in Ghana, who want a place outside of the comfort of their homes to stay and wait on their God. I obeyed, but did not know how. Considering the financial constraints at the time, it made building such a house almost impossible. I was so pressured and burdened to build the house. After several days of intense prayer, the Lord spoke to me and said “Attempt great things FOR GOD, and expect great things FROM GOD”.
THE NAME ADONAI
I believed God had made a covenant with me to attempt to build a place dedicated to Him, and then expect Him glorifying Himself. On the basis of that Covenant, and the promise associated with it, I got the name of the Hotel. Building the hotel, I had intended to call it Emmanuel Redeemer Hotel. Five days prior to the opening, the Lord gave me a new name that corresponds to the fulfillment of a promise only our Sovereign God can honor. He has truly honored His promise.
I am not surprised how I built this house because I know that HIS promises are Yea and Amen. As King David said in 1Chronicles 17:16 “…Who am I, O LORD God, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far?” To King David, God had brought him that far. But to me, and with the fulfillment of this promise, the Lord actually CARRIED me.
It takes only a SOVEREIGN GOD to do what the Lord did for me to finish building a hotel in His Name. Hence, the hotel is named after that attribute of God- ADONAI: OUR SOVEREIGN GOD (GENESIS 15:2-8)
A CHRISTIAN HOTEL
Hotel Adonai is a Christian hotel. It is a Christian hotel because its conducts are based on the Christian concept. The hotel does not discriminate against non Christians. Everyone is welcome to be a guest at the hotel. We offer most of the services all hotels offer.
The only distinguishing factor between hotel Adonai and all other hotels is that it is a Smoking and Alcohol free environment. Additionally, the hotel has both in ceiling and outdoor speakers that only play Christian and Gospel songs.
The idea of naming the rooms instead of numbering them is that, the Lord told me that after the inauguration of the Hotel, His Presence and Power will dwell on the house. He said Ministers, Preachers, Men and Women of God who go through that house will receive power for their Ministries.
Also if a guest is assigned to the Room Ropheka, for instance, and needs healing, then he or she will stand on the word and that chapter to pray to his God for His healing touch. If you are assigned room Jireh, then you pray to the God of provider to provide for you.
