It's stupid to think because you re a Christian you cany6be prosperous,infact Jesus said that I have come that thou mayest prosper in every way. Have you heard what Tyler Perry did during the hurricane that happened in Bahamas?? Without prosperity you can't serve God better Qed. Be happy in your poverty. The only problem is that you don't chase prosperity, when you chase God n do all worship him truly prosperity will chase you n you will get anything you ask.

And in your wisdom, one of the ways to chase God is through sowing of seeds and tithing? Please any body let verses to buttress?

You skipped to read the part I said you don't chase prosperity, it only comes when you ve real relationship with God?? Did I mention tithe n sowing of seeds?? My point is people make it look like it's bad to prosper because you re a Christian. Do you know the bible said the streets of heaven are made with gold?? What does that tell you??

Without any controversy,
1. God is physically right now in the world and the returned Christ is readily available in the world now sitting on the throne of his Father.
2. Now is the time mankind need to look for their Creator,now is the time man must return back to God.
3. Brotherhood of the cross and Star is the long expected Kingdom of Jehovah God and his Christ.
4. The theocratic government of God has begun physically since 2001 so therefore, all negative kingdoms,powers,churches, governments,traditions,organizations be it physical, spiritual and metaphysical that is not from the only true and living God will be brought to nothing and they will not exist anymore.
5. Olumba Olumba Obu is God Almighty whether the world likes it or not soon they will all know.
6. Leader Olumba Olumba Obu Everlasting Gospel is the only solution to mankind problems.
7.Just as moses raised up serpent in the wilderness so that those that was affected by the snake poison if they look upon the death serpent that Moses raised up will be healed and be saved now God has raised Brotherhood of the cross and Star as the ark of covenant the last hope of man and the king of kings and the Lord of Lord His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu that who so ever believe in him will be save.
8. Now is the right time for mankind to look or search for the kingdom of God physically in the world now and be save.

A house built on sand can never stand. Similarly, a foundation built upon lies will always collapse.

Balaam's donkey that talked in the Bible was the one & only donkey that ever talked - till now since the creation of Earth.

The snake that spoke with Eve in the Bible was the one & only snake that ever spoke - till now since the creation of Earth.

The woman with the issue of blood who was healed by touching the hem of Jesus garment was the only woman that ever got healed via touching - till now since the creation of Earth.

Enoch, Elijah & Jesus were the only beings that ascended into Heaven alive - without the use of rocket or hot air balloon - till now since the creation of Earth.

The Pool of Bethesda in the Bible was the only river visited & troubled every year by an Angel of Yahweh to provoke healing - till now since the creation of Earth.

Shadrach, Meschach and Abednego were the only scribes thrown into a furnace of fire and survived - till now since the creation of Earth. Boko Haram are burning Christians to death in Adamawa, Yobe & Borno States every week but Jesus have refused to turn up.

Paul and Silas in the Bible were the only scribes, while in prison, who prayed and sang praises unto Yahweh, and there was an Earthquake that shook the foundation of the prison - setting them free - till now since the creation of Earth. Lear Sharibu has been in the captivity of Boko Haram for how many years now? In spite of the intercessory prayers offered on her behalf by ALL the church denominations in Nigeria every sunday, yet Yahweh & Jesus have refused to send Angel Michael, Gabriel, Raphael & Uriel to go set her free.

Jesus was the only being who turned water to wine, and then fed 5000 people with 5 loaves of bread & 2 fishes in spite of Jesus saying in John 14: 12 that:

"Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these"

And till now, despite all the faithful believers & church goers, somersaulting inside gutter and using apron to cure H.I.V in Nigeria and the world at large - nobody has been able to supplant the record of Jesus since the creation of Earth. grin

I would rather believe Mark Twain's quote than all the nonsense lies fabricated by the Roman Catholic Church during the "Council of Nicaea in 325AD" to extort money from their gullible followers worldwide while keeping them under perpetual control.

The Church of Africa is STILL the author of peoverty, now moreso than ever. Many churches take so much and only offer false hope in return and fake prophecies that either never come to pass or were always going to happen and anyone with comon sense could have predicted. For every person in a an African church that finds prosperity, you have hundreds of others still stuck in abject poverty, holding onto the false hope they've been sold instead of recognizing ecenomic reality and responding appropriately.

The African church is one of the reasons for the runaway poverty in the continent and that's because we have elevated pastors to positions of unquestionable power. Unlike politicians who we can't question because we are afraid, we refuse to question religious leaders because they make themselves out as God on earth with the power to make rich and poor.

We need to tolerate each other's religion if we want to be great as a country but some christains are too judgemental.

Just so u know, I am a christain
So now it's the time of Christian threads to be trolled by any and everyone who wishes it? And you find nothing wrong with members pledging allegiance to Allah and Mohammed, but every tom and harry can walk in and out of a christain thread.

Wrong!!! Everything concerns God with prosperity. That was why he created every human being.

The principles of prosperity are not man-made, they abound in the form of knowledge and ideas created for all mankind... The issue is that only a select few actually tap deep enough into their inherent wealth of money making knowledge.

If it's not a select few (or few, if select doesn't sit well with you), then why are there more poor and wretched people than wealthy across the universe?...

If God didn't create us all to prosper (of which making money is just one of the aspects), then why did He?... Why is there an inherent hunger in man to survive and succeed?...

If it doesn't concern God, then why did he or would he create you with the "understanding" you choose to prefer and equally brag about?...

Sir...when u eventually give ur life to Christ...the God you have abused would never be happy if u don't come back here(on this platform where u have blasphemed his name)to confess he is lord...

LET ME LET YOU KNOW
There are reasons to be happy and there are reasons to be sad ....it ur choice to pick whichever mood u want..
As in if u want to be sad now now..the are some things u get to remember and u just loose ur mood...same goes to happiness

Therefore there will always be reasons why some people go against the Bible and Christ... infact they even pick out punch lines to defame the Bible to the extent that some would want to believe them to be true just like u have done up there....
Likewise there are reasons why some people love the Bible and Christ...if I begin mention wetin God done do in my life oga...I have got reasons...check my signature.

Re: The Impact Of Benny Hinn’s Rejection Of The Prosperity Gospel In Africa by kabillionaire(m): 10:37pm On Sep 08
Demzlent:
The news of Benny Hinn’s public rejection and renunciation of the ‘prosperity Gospel’ has been hailed as a watershed moment within Evangelical Christianity.

However, it remains to be seen whether his ‘correction of theology’ will be equally embraced by the multiple prosperity preachers permeating Africa, many of whom regard him as a mentor.

This week, Pastor Benny Hinn admitted the controversial teaching that believers have a right to the blessings of health and wealth through the “sowing of seeds” is actually unbiblical and “an offense to the Holy Spirit”.

Hinn, once known as one of the most aggressive promoters of the Prosperity Gospel, told viewers during a live broadcast: “I don’t want to get to Heaven and be rebuked. I think it’s time we say it like it is: The gospel is not for sale. Healing is not for sale. Prosperity is not for sale.”

His public reversal on the issue comes in the wake of his nephew, Costi Hinn – who once worked and travelled with him – releasing a damning book titled ‘God, Greed, and the (Prosperity) Gospel’.

Costi described working in the ‘Hinn dynasty’ as a fusion of “royal family” flamboyancy and “mafia” secrecy, detailing how money faithfully given to the ministry was squandered on mansions, private jets and fast cars and loyalty cherished above honesty.

However, irrespective of the wide-ranging opinions about Hinn and his legitimacy, his influence in the new generation of African preachers is undeniable.

In recent years, Hinn held several high-profile events with Nigerian Pastor Chris Oyakhilome – also a known proponent of the Prosperity Gospel and faith-healing – the duo even launching a new television network in USA.

He has also held public meetings with Nigerian prosperity preachers Ayo Oritsejafor and Biodun Fatoyinbo (currently in the eye of the storm for multiple accusations of rape and sexual impropriety), Ghanaian Bishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams and Zimbabwean ‘Prophet’ Uebert Angel.

His style of message and ministration can be seen mirrored by charismatic preachers throughout the continent, with the fixation on ‘seed faith’ championed by the likes of Matthew Ashimolowo, Funke Adejumo and David Oyedepo.

A large portion of Pentecostal church services in Africa is usually dedicated to the ‘collection of offerings’ and reports of pastors taking money in exchange for ‘prayers and prophecy’ are rampant.

News and views about the flamboyant lifestyle of African ‘men of God’ dominate gossip sites and social media, with pastors often competing to join ‘the richest list’ as if material assets somehow equalled spiritual validity.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=beayvbtHFyw

While many African believers have been vocal in their support of Hinn’s announcement on Facebook (albeit some doubting its sincerity), most pastors have been conspicuously silent.

“Nigerian and African ‘pastorprenuers’, Benny Hinn has told you the bitter truth,”opined Otunba Oliseh on Facebook. “Stop collecting illegal money from your Church members!”

“Benny is finally coming to the light! I believe he is watching TB Joshua – one of the only African preachers I know who makes it clear the Gospel is not for sale,”penned Kato Gabakaiwe from Botswana.

Others called on Hinn to back up his ‘repentance’ with ‘restitution’. “If Benny Hinn is genuinely rejecting the prosperity gospel, he needs to do what Zacchaeus did and pay back anyone he has cheated out of their money,”wrote Rich Colon, an African-American, on Twitter.

While Benny’s recent turnaround is indeed commendable, it appears the damage is done to the African church as the manipulative teachings he once championed will not be quickly undone.

There are indeed genuine ministers of the Gospel in Africa but those who prey on the gullible with a focus on financial incentives are likely to be unmoved by Hinn’s remorse, lest their ‘business’ suffers additional loss.
