Non Of The Ondo State Killer Will Go To Heaven. The Room To Repent Is Closed For Them- Bishop David Oyedepo

Today being a public holiday, Bishop David Oyedepo organised a prayer meeting to seek God’s intervention over the affairs of the nation. After the prayers, he preached a sermon he titled The Mystery of Vengeance. In that sermon, he made a strong case for why Christians should be angry about the works of evil men in Nigeria, and why we should lift our voices to invoke vengeance and lay curses on them.

He revealed that we are allowed to curse them because the room for repentance is closed for them and none of them will go to heaven. According to him, it is just like the case of Esau; he repented, and sought his father’s blessing with tears, but it was too late.

His basis for making this statement was the statement Jesus made in Matthew 12:31-32 concerning blasphemy against the Holy Ghost. This scripture says;

“Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

“And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.”

Like you saw above, blasphemy against the Holy Ghost is the sin that can never be forgiven, and Bishop Oyedepo interpreted it to mean doing anything to stop the move of the Holy Spirit, or trying to come against the work of the Holy Spirit in the world today.

He explained that when the Holy Spirit came at first, he killed Ananais and Sapphira for telling lies about a property that was originally their own, and that if the Holy Spirit would not forgive them for lying to him, how would he forgive the killers who went to his church and killed the people there?

“If the Holy Ghost refused to forgive Ananais and Sapphira for lying, for a property that was even their own, how will he forgive those people for touching his bride, for the church is the bride of Christ,” he said.

“Among the people they killed was a couple who got married the day before. They cannot escape. Nobody should pray for them. They cannot go to heaven. The room for repentance is closed for them,” he revealed.

Anybody who loves righteousness will naturally be angry at the evil act, but I believe that we are bound to pray for their repentance no matter how dastardly their act is.

For example, do you remember how Saul of Tarsus persecuted the church in the book of Acts? He was the leader of the group that killed Stephen, and he began to go to the house of the Christians, as well as their meeting places, to kill them or arrest them for torture in prisons. What is the difference between what Saul did and what these guys are doing today? He also killed Christians in churches remember?

However, on his way to Damascus to cause more havoc on the body of Christ, he had an encounter with Jesus, and he became Paul the apostle, who wrote majority of the New Testament scriptures!

Imagine if the early Christians were praying for him to die, or declaring that the room for repentance is closed for him. Or even if they were praying for him to die, imagine God answered their prayers and killed him, would he have lived to write all the books that developed Christian theology? Would he have spread the gospel all over Asia and parts of Europe? Would he have become one of the greatest apostles?

I’m just saying we should not jump to conclusions. God can save the worst of the sinners, because Jesus himself died for everybody; the least sinner and the worst of sinner included.

The Cabal that holding Nigeria down, it is only Bola Tinubu that can break it- Ex NUPENG Kokori

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, “is the only living politician capable of breaking the cabal holding Nigeria down”, Chief Frank Kokori, a former General Secretary of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, has said.

Kokori, an APC elder in Delta State, while speaking with journalists on Sunday in his Ovu residence in the Ethiope East Local Government Area of the state, applauded Tinubu’s emergence as the party’s flagbearer for the 2023 general election, saying, “I don’t think there’s a better candidate than Tinubu; who can take on the cabal and rescue Nigeria finally.”

The renowned labour activist, however, warned Tinubu, a Muslim, not to succumb to pressures from powerful party men to pick another Muslim as running mate, noting that such a decision would be insensitive and detrimental to national coherence and unity.

In this regard, he specifically appealed to the Northern leaders and governors to be instrumental to Tinubu’s easy victory come 2023 poll, by eschewing a Muslim-Muslim ticket.

Kokori said, “They should bear with him and not impose the Muslim ticket on him. They should take that as a sacrifice because religion and ethnicity have become a major issue in this country. He should be given a free hand to pick a noble Northern Christian and support that Christian.

“The last hope of this country lies with the APC government and I thank Buhari for making the last primary free and fair without succumbing to blackmail.

“I pray for our country and I pray that Tinubu will not forget where he is coming from as God has given him this opportunity to put his name in gold.”

Kokori lamented that “the cabal has been the cause of the socio-economic woes bedevilling the country in the past seven years,” just as he noted with concern that “the cabal has been in charge of this country all the years of Buhari’s rule.”

According to him, “even though the President, (Major-General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) is a good man, he allowed persons with self-serving interest around him to derail his focus.”

He spoke further, “Tinubu winning this election is hallelujah to me! He is the only strong personality who can break the cabal that has been in charge of this country all the years of Buhari’s rule.

“The joy I have on the result of the primary election is because I knew that among all the aspirants, Tinubu is the only one who will have the guts to step on toes.

“He is the only person who can take on the cabal that has put Nigeria in hostage for the past seven years. He broke the myth surrounding the cabal.

“Buhari is a good man, no doubt about that, but he is not in touch with the people in the country and with what is happening in this country, because he surrounded himself with a cabal that is so ruthless and who always struggles for their personal aggrandizement to the extent that they monetise public positions in this country.

“He (Buhari) gave all his power to his cabal and as a result, those people without connection in the country are not able to be in position of power.

“Most of the problems we have in this nation are not being solved because of the same reason. Nobody should pretend; we all know that most of the positions in the country were being monetised and sold out by the cabal.”

Kokori then commented on the health status of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, submitting that “there is no cause for alarm inasmuch as a terminal ailment is out of the equation.”

He said, “I was worried about his health. But I know that once a person crosses the age of 50, he tends to face different health challenges and that is normal in the whole world. Buhari himself had this challenge but today, he is one of the fittest persons. So, his health challenges should not be a problem so long he doesn’t have a terminal disease.”

Kokori then admonished that since Nigeria has been fair to Tinubu, he should reciprocate by lifting Nigeria from the doldrums.

Buhari’s Government Evil From Head To Toe, APC Will Never Rule Again – Oyedepo Blows Hot

Presiding Bishop, Living Faith Church Worldwide, David Oyedepo has prophesied that the ruling All Progressives Congress will never rule the country again.

According to PM News, the man of God made the proclamation on Wednesday.

He also described Buhari’s government as evil from head to toe.

He said it was now clear that when the wicked rule, the people mourn, saying that he shouted this in 2015.

Oyedepo, in a video posted by Church Gist, added that “I know the God I serve, and I know that the church is His beloved, and you touch the church, you touch the apple of His eyes. Whatever you now see is what you have chosen. But I know this God, let God arise and let his enemies be scattered.

“He will scatter them, this God will scatter them, do you know that there is no response yet? My God, 50 people slaughtered? My God! This government is evil from head to toe. I knew it, I shouted it, this government is evil. Now the jungle is matured, church people, come to church, let no devil scare you.

“Anyone that dared the gathering of the saints from now is finished, finished from their roots. He said every tongue that shall rise against you in judgement, you shall condemn. You mean you can’t find where they are or you put them there?

“My God, show yourself within days, let the next seven days be days of horror, let it be days of horrors in their camp, days of irrecoverable devastation. As for you (Church members), your life is safe, anyone called by the name of the Lord is secured in this nation.

“I am not an ordained prophet, I am a God-sent prophet and you should know by now when prophets speak, people should listen. See where you brought yourself into, I knew they were evil people, I knew them.”

Owo Catholic Church Attack is a Declaration of War Against the Yoruba People – Akintoye

Says “The Permanent Solution to this Fulani Quagmire is an Independent Yoruba Nation.

The Leader of the Apex Body for Yoruba Self-Determination and Self-Preservation Movement, Ilana Omo Oodua Worldwide (IOOW), Professor Banji Akintoye, has described the Sunday morning deadly attack allegedly unleashed against Christian Worshipers at St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo, Ondo-State by Gunmen suspected to be Fulani Herdsmen, leaving about 85 people dead, as a declaration of War Against the Yoruba People.

Responding through the Communications Secretary of IOOW, Mr. Maxwell Adeleye, Akintoye called on the State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, to declare an emergency against the activities of Fulani Herdsmen in the state with immediate effect.

The renowned scholar said the effontery of the Fulani Marauders needs to be frankly and courageously confronted so as to prove to their sponsors that the Yoruba people can never be intimidated or subjugated.

He said to permanently solve the Fulani Herdsmen’s quagmire, the Yoruba People need to negotiate their exit from the Union of Nigeria without further delay.

“We have stated it very expressly that the Yoruba people need to negotiate their exit from Nigeria as a matter of urgency but our Partisan Political Actors in Yoruba Land never took us serious. We warned them that there’s fire on the mountain but we were mocked because of their personal aggrandizement.

“Today, we have all been encircled, most especially, in Lagos. For Herdsmen to have the effontery of bombarding a Church in Yoruba Land to kill about 85 people shows that we are now in a realistic danger.

“My urgent advise to Governor Akeredolu is to pick up the gauntlet and declare an emergency against the activities of all Fulani Herdsmen in the state with immediate effect.

“We have now been taken for granted. We need not pretend anymore. We must demand unanimously, an exit from Nigeria.

“We the Yoruba People cannot live in the same country with characters whose idea of common citizenship in Nigeria is to brutalize, subjugate and even exterminate us. It is time to leave these characters now. All Stakeholders – the Elites, Traditional Rulers, Our Women should act now.

“All the South West States, including the Yoruba Leaders in Kogi and Kwara States should equally declare an emergency against the activities of Fulani Herdsmen. We must now take our destinies into our hands”

There won’t be peace until Buhari appease Fulanis before leaving office ― Sheik Gumi

Islamic scholar, Sheik Ahmad Abubakar Gumi, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure adequate appeasement of the Fulani race before leaving office next May.

Gumi spoke, on Thursday, as a resource person at the ongoing two-day First Interactive Policy Dialogue and Cultural Festival organised by the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Socio-Cultural Festival with the theme, ” The Future of Fulani Pastoralists in Nigeria.”

The Islamic scholar claimed that the Fulanis have been wrongly demonised and feel alienated.

He maintained that with dialogue and genuine commitment to peace, those who engage in kidnapping and banditry which have complicated security situations in both the North West and North-Eastern part of the country would surrender their arms.

The Islamic scholar particularly tasked the Muhammadu Buhari administration to create Ministry of Nomadic Affairs to mitigate herders-farmers clashes.

He also demanded that adequate funds, in trillions to match the appeasement of Niger Delta militants with the creation of the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs be done for the bandits.

He said: “The children that were killing and kidnapping people opened their doors freely to us when we visited because they heard we were there to preach the gospel, all they want is to dialogue. Send them people that they respect to dialogue with them and they will listen by the grace of God and this problem will be resolved.

“Everyone is to blame for their actions, including the bandits. They feel the world has developed and left them behind, all the injustice being meted out to them. “How do we resolve this, we need to walk amongst them, embrace and ensure that all they deserve is given to them. The havoc they are causing is hindering farming, villages have been displaced because they feel that they were also displaced from their homes.

“We are at war and the solution is what was done for the people of the Niger Delta, how the government got them justice and even gave them a Ministry, why can’t the government give us a Ministry of Nomadic Affairs? Education will be inclusive and empowering, and hospitals.

“They still have respect and behave like everyone else when you meet with them, we need to come together, politicians, security agencies, traditional and religious leaders and assist them. They are acting out because they have been pushed to the wall, since the inception of Nigeria as a country, they have never gotten real assistance.

“Now gather all their monies and give to them. Calculate how much you have given to the Niger Delta region since they started their agitations, I heard it is running into trillions, so the Fulani want theirs, gather all their monies and give to them, I am calling on the President, before you leave office, hand over the money, meet their leaders to get to them. 99.9 per cent of Fulanis are peace-loving, only 0.1 cents are causing all the havoc, which is not being caused for mere mischief but because they have been pushed to the wall.

“We have to engage these people to have a positive result, my only fear is the infiltration of terrorists into their midsts, it’s a factor we have to consider seriously and even the terrorists themselves, I think there is neglect. Until now, Boko Haram is not a hopeless case, so we have to protect our herdsmen from their infiltration.”

Sheik Gumi however cautioned the Nomadic Pastoralists to cultivate the habit of living in peace with non-Fulanis and non-Moslems, as he noted that killings of innocent citizens were against the prescription of the Holy Quran and the teachings of the Prophet Mohammed.

“There is a treaty we have with all non-Muslims in Nigeria to live together in peace, which was reached with the colonial masters which are renewed every time we elect members of the House of Assembly so no Muslim has the right to injure or kill any non-Muslim in this country under the treaty and the Prophet has instructed us not to kill any soul that we enter into a treaty of peace with and we have agreed constitutionally to stay in peace with all non-Muslims so no Muslim has the right to use his hand to kill any non-Muslim.”

NASFAT Calls For Arrest, Prosecution Of Deborah’s Killers

Abdul-Azeez Onike, the Chief Missioner, Nasrul-Lahi-l-Fatih (NASFAT), has urged law enforcement agents to investigate and arrest everyone of the Muslim fanatics involved in the killing of Deborah Samuel.

Mr Onike made the plea in a statement on Friday, while reacting to the killing of Ms Samuel, a student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Wamako, Sokoto.

Ms Samuel, a student of Shehu Shagari College Education, Sokoto, was reportedly killed on Thursday by Muslim extremists for allegedly making blasphemous statements against Islam’s Prophet Muhammad.

“I urge the law enforcement agents to do a thorough investigation, arrest all culprits and speedily bring justice to bear,” Mr Onike said, adding that “extra-judicial punishment is alien to Islam and unacceptable in Islam”.

The NASFAT chief missioner advised against reprisal attack and unnecessary maligning of a particular tribe or religion, for fear that jungle justice was “fast becoming rampant in our country”.

He said: “To understand the anathema of the sad incident of extra-judicial punishment meted out to a lady in Sokoto recently, which resulted in her death, let us look at the following narration which depicts and represents the expected reaction of any follower of our Noble Prophet Muhammad (saws):

“Anas Malik reported: While we were in the mosque with Allah’s Messenger, a desert Arab came and stood up and began to urinate in the Mosque.

“The Companions of Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said: Stop, stop, but the Messenger of Allah said: Don’t interrupt him; leave him alone.

“They left him alone, and when he finished urinating, Allah’s Messenger called him and said to him: These Mosques are not the places meant for urine and filth, but are only for the remembrance of Allah.

“It is a place for prayer and the recitation of the Qur’an, the Holy Prophet then gave orders to one of the people who brought a bucket of water and poured it over.

“Can you imagine what would be the reactions of some people, if they see someone ignorantly or deliberately urinating inside a Mosque?,” he queried.

Insecurity: This Isn’t About Politics, We Must Speak The Bitter Truth —Femi Fani-Kayode

“Today we must set politics aside and speak the bitter truth.

100 murdered in cold blood in Plateau state and 25 butchered in Benue by terrorists.

This is disgraceful, indefensible and unacceptable.

How much longer can we put up with this?

We weep about the carnage in Ukraine but we say and do nothing about the slaughter that we are witnessing on a daily basis on our own doorstep.

How many more innocent souls need to be slaughtered before we cultivate a sense of national outrage?

When will our people and Government say “enough is enough!”

Do we have any self-respect and pride?

These are NIGERIANS that are being butchered!!! Our very own people and our very own compatriots!!!

When will something be done to stop the wholesale carnage?

We have endured the pain and shame in silence for far too long, hoping and praying that the authorities will rise up to the occasion and that things will change for the better.

Sadly things appear to be getting worse.

We cannot sit back and watch silently anymore as our compatriots are being cut short by a bunch of ruthless, vicious, evil and savage militias made up of primarily foreign barbarians and bloodthirsty bandits.

The Federal Government has an obligation before God and the Nigerian people to do far more.

They have a few more months before their tenure comes to an end to put a stop to this madness.

They have a few more months to stop the war crimes, the crimes against humanity, the genocide and the unprecedented terror and hardship that has been unleashed against the people of this country by these villainous and heartless enemies of humanity.

They must empower our security and intelligence agencies, give them the green light and stop holding them back.

They must send send our Armed Forces into the dark forests and filthy holes where these bloodlusting animals take refuge and wipe them out once and for all.

They must crush the enemy with a degree of ruthlessness that has never been witnessed before in the annals of our history.

Anything short of that would be a monumental failure on their part and a deep insult and spiritual wound to the Nigerian people.

There is no honor or decency in showing restraint before those that kill innocent men, women and children.

There is no decency in treating those that seek to wipe out our people with kid gloves.

They deserve to be sent to their maker in the most brutal and decisive manner and we demand no less from the Federal Government”- FFK.
