Stop Running To Pastors For Prayer, Engage More In Personal Prayer – Kumuyi Tells Christians

According to him: “The trendy situation where people are shifting personal responsibility of taking their problems to God for a divine solution to their pastors is totally wrong. We are in a pray-for-me generation. A generation that feels they cannot live except somebody does it for them.

He noted that: “There is a need for personal prayer. Pulpit prayer is good but personal prayer is very necessary. Whatever is happening in your life engage in personal prayer. We must do less talking to men and talk more to God. Jesus personally approached the father at His point of death. Do not be so busy with the work of the Lord without the Lord of the work.”

Pastor Kumuyi admonished: “Just like Moses, we should not be satisfied with the presence of an angel because direct communication with God without an intermediary with an angel is the best for the Ministry.”

Planned Terrorist Attack In Abuja Will Not Happen – Pastor Paul Enenche Reveals

Pastor Paul Enenche, the senior Pastor of Dunamis International Gospel Center, has revealed that the prediction on a planned terrorist attack in Abuja will not come to pass.

There has been palpable tension in Abuja, and its environs since the United States and the United Kingdom warned of a possible terrorist attack in the nation’s capital.

The alert claimed that the terrorists were targeting government facilities, places of worship and schools, among others. Several government and private establishments have been shutting down operations over the fear of attack by the daredevil terrorist that have, over the years, kept the country hostage.

However, Pastor Enenche urged Nigerians to fear not because such a prediction would end in futility. The clergyman cautioned residents of Abuja against fear because terrorism thrives when there is fear.

Addressing his members at the church headquarters in Abuja on Sunday, the clergyman said Nigeria was meant to be the headquarters of the Coronavirus from prediction, but it failed.

According to Enenche, God who stopped such prediction from coming to pass would avert every planned terrorists attack in Abuja.

I Never Prophesied Against Peter Obi – Mbaka

Father Mbaka in a new video on the AMEN’s official page, stated that he never mentioned the former Anambra State governor’s name during his sermon.

There had been reports that during a Sunday mass last week, the clergyman had uttered some prophecy against Obi, however, in his reply, Fr Mbaka advised those he termed purveyors of the fake news to apologise.

In further attempts to clear the air, Mbaka said “After handing over to Fr Anthony Amadi on Sunday, I started hearing that Fr Mbaka spoke against Peter Obi.

I, Rev Fr Mbaka on that Sunday never mentioned Peter not to talk of Obi. Please whoever is being used by the devil to blackmail me in the name of doing any job for anybody, is satanic and should apologise, withdraw such nefarious, and satanic utterances and be careful when you want to harm the image of a man of God.

“Whoever did that, I have forgiven you, but I want to hear that you have apologised and withdrew what you said against me on that day. Just to put the Adoration ministry in trouble.

“Please as I have said, I heard some people are planning to protest. I have not asked anybody to protest for me. And I don’t want to hear that there is any protest done to express anger towards my journey to the monastery.

“Help me fellow adorers to stop any kind of protest that anybody will carry on my behalf to please me. Instead of the protest, or demonstration geared towards helping me, it may jeopardize my priestly call.

“Therefore, encourage peace, encourage love, within this time and do more prayers, and God of heaven will do the rest for us in Jesus name.”

There were also rumours suggesting that Mbaka had been removed from his position as spiritual director of AMEN, however, the Reverend Father stated that the information is wrong.

According to him, the mother church recommended that he spends some time in solitude at a monastery, a necessity hinged on the need for Mbaka to hear what the Spirit of God had to tell him.

Mbaka said, “I want to use this opportunity to bless you, encourage you as I depart to the monastery in obedience to my Bishop, His Lordship Callistus Onaga, I am going to the monastery under priestly obedience and I wish to encourage you fellow adorers to remain calm and be still.

“This is a time we shall know real adorers. Please back me with your prayers so that I will go and embark on deeper reflection, sober contemplations and interior waiting on the Lord.

“I want to assure you that God has plans for us for a future and hope and not of disaster. Use this opportunity to call on God for integral wellness and well-being of the adoration ministry that is the apple of God’s eyes.

“I wish to inform you fellow adorers that this is not a time to be cantankerous, sorrowful, and angry unnecessarily.

“Stand up in faith and I plead, do not give the devil any opportunity. As a catholic priest, I must obey the mother church under the vow of obedience. Please, in my absence don’t do anything that is awful, anything in any way shape of form give the devil iota of glory. Let us not fall into any trap that the devil has set.”

He urged all members of the Adoration Ministry to remain steadfast in prayer and obey Father Anthony Amadi, who will lead in the ministry while he is away.
Mbaka assured his followers that he will return to them in no time.

Mercy Chinwo And Pastor Blessed Are Inviting Trouble Into Their Home – Lawmaker, Maria Ude Nwachi

Maria Ude Nwachi, a lawmaker representing Afikpo North-East in Ebonyi State House of Assembly has issued a public warning to newlywed gospel singer, Mercy Chinwo and her husband, Pastor BLessed.

The warning is coming after the gospel singer flaunted the brand new car gift she was given by her husband for her birthday earlier this week.

Pastor Blessed had surprised Mercy Chinwo with an SUV as a birthday gift and an excited Mercy Chinwo flaunted the gift on social media and urged her fans to thank him on her behalf; an act that did not sit down well with Maria Ude Nwachi.

Airing her displeasure on the act on Facebook, the lawmaker chided Mercy Chinwo for the “unnecessary show off”
She wrote,

“Mercy Chinwo and hubby, avoid unnecessary show on social media. Don’t invite scrutiny on yourselves. Biko. Clarification: This type of show by a woman of the bible will bring nothing good for her. One investigation into their doing might bust a lot and those hailing them won’t be able to help them out of it. The investigation can come from the source and to find something no dey hard. To make displays that beg to be scrutinized is very very unwise because your subliminal request will surely be answered if you keep it up. Nollywood actresses do these packages and it’s okay but not her type. I did not post that package because I felt sorry for her as she knows not what she is doing. Allow trouble to sleep in peace, no wake am. Thank you.” Maria Ude wrote on Facebook.

Vote Individuals, And Not Parties, CAN President Say’s to Nigerians.

Nigerians would not use the political party as a deciding factor in the choice of a candidate to succeed the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), in 2023, the Christian Association of Nigeria said on Sunday.

According to the organisation, Nigerians have gone beyond voting based on the political party presenting candidates.

The President of CAN, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, stated this while delivering his sermon at the 2022 men’s conference of Christ Holy Church International, titled, ‘By faith, give leadership.’

He insisted that the electorate, particularly the Christians, would vote for candidates in the next general election using their current capacities and antecedents as criteria.

Okoh said, “It is important that people of God at this time should have their eyes open. Before casting your votes, make sure you know the people you are giving your votes.

“In Nigeria, things are beginning to change. Gone are those days when people vote based on the political party fielding the candidate; when once you have the ticket of a particular party, you are covered.

“Today, people are looking at individuals, their credibility, character, experience, capacities and antecedents in relation to the positions they want to occupy.”

The CAN President decried the menace of vote-buying in the country’s electoral system, saying the people must begin to interrogate the plans and programmes of politicians before deciding who will get their mandate for the next four years.

He, however, cautioned politicians against making false promises to amass the people’s vote.

The CAN President said, “Nigerians have come to a point where they feel that they need to sit down and negotiate with the presidential and governorship candidates.

“We must ask them: ‘What is our portion in your administration (if elected)?’ They should be able to convince you before you can cast your votes for them. Nobody should take away your future from you. Don’t let anyone give you money to buy your conscience and four years of joy.

“To the people who are in politics, when you are making promises, make sure you are telling the people what you can fulfil.

“There’s no need promising us you can give us heaven on earth when you know that given the realities on the ground, you cannot be able to fulfill it.”

He also raised the alarm over the use of youths for political thuggery, noting that the development portended danger for the nation’s democracy.

He said, “Our youths should not allow themselves to be used as political thugs. The era of thuggery in our electoral system is over.

“They must positively participate in the political process. I am saying with a sense of duty that our youths must not give in to electoral violence.

“We must expand the space to inject new ideas into the systems. The world is moving on, and Nigeria cannot afford to be left behind.”

The CAN President described Nigeria as one of the best places to live in, because of the liberties the people enjoyed compared to the citizens of other nations.

“Nigeria, for me, is one of the best places to live in. I love Nigeria, and we must put our collective freedom to good use,” he said.

The cleric said that the problems facing Christians were not peculiar to Nigeria.
He tasked the body of Christ to demonstrate leadership by providing hope to the rest of the country by faith in God.

Okoh said, “The Church is under attack, but not only in Nigeria. Globally, the truth is under attack.

“There’s no generation that had not had its own challenges. We are facing ours and must find a way to wriggle ourselves out of it.

“Some many things polarise the people at this time, but as Christians, we need to always stand together, knowing that we serve the same Lord and share in the same heritage.

“It is our unity and oneness that gives us the force to contend with whatever that opposes our very existence. When we are together, as people of God, there’s nothing we cannot conquer. Together, we can give a sense of security to our nation.

“In this (election) season, the Christians are going to provide leadership by faith, but with our two eyes opened.

“There is a miracle waiting to happen in this country and it will surely become a reality. We should not put our trust in man.”

God Has Sent The APC Government Packing From Nigeria. Tinubu Cannot Be Nigeria’s President- Primate Ayodele.

Muslim-Muslim Ticket’ll Face Wrath, say’s Primate Ayodele.

Primate Elijah Ayodele, the leader Of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, has issued a warning to other clerics.

The clergyman warned men of God against supporting the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muslim-Muslim ticket ahead of the presidential election in 2023.

Primate Ayodele said God has sent the APC government packing, hence men of God shouldn’t support the party’s Muslim-Muslim ticket.

In a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Primate Ayodele revealed that any man of God supporting the ticket was clearly against God’s will for the country and would face the wrath of God.

He explained that God had kicked against the plan of the APC to retain the seat of the presidency, adding that the Muslim-Muslim ticket was dead on arrival.

Primate Ayodele said: ‘’God is against any pastor or Christian leader that supports APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket, they should keep their mouth shut if they don’t want to face the wrath of God.

“God is against the ticket and has kicked against the plans of the APC to retake Nigeria again. The APC is playing God with the Muslim-Muslim ticket, they are so proud in their mistake, God is ready to fight the party for the presidential election, APC ticket is dead on arrival.

‘’Under the government of APC, the country is shaking, the economy has died and as far as God is concerned, he is interested in the progress of this country.

“God has sent the APC government packing from Nigeria. Tinubu cannot be Nigeria’s president, I’m saying it again. His presidency is not endorsed by God.’’
