(By Chris K. Amadi)-All those scheming to destroy the church of Jesus Christ have been warned to desist or face unpleasant consequences, just like others who had attempted to do so in the past.
This declaration was made by Rev. Chris Oyakhilome, President of the Lovelworld Ministries, in a global New Year message that was monitored in Port Harcourt.
Rev. Oyakhilome was confident that the church can never be defeated. “The church will out live you. You are not the first to seek to destroy the church. Let no one push you to destroy the church.
“Let me warn you to avoid that path. If someone pushes you and you do it, you will have yourself to blame.The Church Of Jesus Christ can never be defeated”.
The man of God, who had wondered how himself, who had laid hands on people with contagious diseases, and prayed for people with diverse afflictions across the world and they were healed, would now be afraid of coronavirus.
He kicked against shutting down of churches and the promotion of fear in the world, even as he added that the lockdowns were aimed at stopping the church from preaching the word of faith, and setting the church up for persecution.
Rev. Oyakhilome further declared that he was undeterred:
” Many of us will never deny our faith in Jesus Christ. We will not be moved by their false claims”, even as he charged Christians to prepare their hearts to continue to serve the Lord inspite of the challenges.
He hinted that preparations are also being made in heaven, and that all over the world, angels are out preparing people and helping with the work of God.
The servant if God also noted that agents of darkness were also at work. “Even in the world of darkness, preparation is taking place. They are preparing for war because their time is short.
“We are in the closing period of the world. Although the kingdom of darkness are pulling together their arsenal to put up one more resistance, they do not stand a chance”, President of Love world ministries clearly stated, while observing that every man of God is answerable to God and therefore should not be target of criticisms by Christians for any reason. He also added that the church of Jesus Christ has a self cleansing system.
