“And they came to Jerusalem. And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold and those who bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. And he would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. And he was teaching them and saying to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of Prayer for all the nations? But you have made it a den of robbers,” Mark 11:15–17. Many of you priests and pastors today are perhaps ignorant that you have equally started trading in the house of God with your lusts for money. While many of you sell the front seats in the house of God every Sunday as you reserve them for the rich and the influential people in the society, the manner at which some of you desecrate the house of God in the name of launchings or trying to raise money right inside churches today are also not different from the trading that happened in the temple that made the Son of God angry.
Jesus was not necessarily only angry with the merchants who exploited the poor in their exchanges etc., but He was – even angrier – because the attention of the people was shifted from the words of God and salvation to buying and selling. Many of you priests and pastors today have stopped preaching the words of God and salvation, as your concentration while on pulpits is heavily more on prosperities, miracles and wealth thereby taking the attention of the people away from the spiritual food which is the word of God.
I have seen many of you predict at different times that a particular country will win a World Cup or African Nations Cup etc. claiming that the Holy Spirit revealed such to you, but at the end of the day it never came to be as you prophesied. My question to you then is: does God lie? Who gave you the message you spoke – because the bible says that every word of God must come to pass?
It is everyone’s prerogative to make a prediction of what one thinks that may happen after a critical view of an issue – it may happen or not – and there is absolutely nothing wrong in doing that. However, there is everything wrong in saying that God told one to say something when God never said so. Only a fraudster does that. Some of you that have become politicians on pulpits claimed in 2014 that Buhari was a messiah sent to rescue Nigeria from corruption, insecurity and collapse etc. But the results staring before you and I today are that Buhari’s administration under APC is regrettably a disaster. It is the highest tragedy that has befallen the people in this geographical part of Africa after the Nigeria Biafra war. Therefore, it is high time you dishonest teachers, false prophets and agents of darkness stopped making God look like a liar. You prophets of doom cum politicians in the sacred garment of God prophesizing lies and evil remember Hebrew 9:27. It says, “And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment.” What will be your answer when you will stand before God? Or do you think that you will be too smart to escape all your dealings in secret places, lies and iniquities?
“I said in my heart, “God will judge the righteous and the wicked, since there is a time for every activity and every deed. God must surely repay each and every one of us according to our deeds,” Ecclesiastes 3:17. The book of Mathew 12:36 made it clearer for you to be conscious of the words that come out from your mouth when it says, “But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.”
“Verily, verily” I say unto you, the followers of religious leaders, read your bible very well and seek the face of holy spirits for interpretation. Every yoke, spell or bondage that may have beclouded your reasoning I command it to get loose, and open your eyes wisely to come back to your senses to understand that none of your religious leader is God. You should be aware that some of these preachers are a bunch of agents of darkness. In the book of Mathew 7:15-16, it says, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. …”
Many of you religious followers have since stopped respecting your wives and husbands at your homes, but behave like people hypnotized as you worship your pastors/priests/prophets and prophetess like God and humbly call them moms and daddies, a nick name that is for you a taboo to call your partner at home, I pray for your redemption today and declare you henceforth free from all captivity. “I say unto you,” respect your religious leaders, but know that they are not Gods, equally respect your husbands, wives and all. “Go and sin no more.”
“If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land,” Isaiah 1:19. Heaven is real and hell is also real, the choice is yours.
