Not All Pastors Are Fake Or Depend On Tithes For Survival / Lumumba: Churches With Husband And Wife Pastors Are Pyramid Scheme (VIDEO) / 'Student Pastors Are The Biggest Scammers In Nigerian University' - Man Says (2) (3) (4)
|Pastors Are Not Meant To Cure Corona Virus. by MyExpression(m): 12:19am On Apr 05|
So why do we expect God to use ONLY pastors to heal the world of this corona virus pandemic; when we know He has in time past, worked with skilled men to save their world.
In time past, God have always used skilled men to solve the world's problems.
Abraham, our father of faith, was a great warrior. After his victory in BATTLE, he came back to thank God, paying obeisance to God through Melchizedek.
When God wanted to save the world during the flood, he used Noah- to BUILD an ark.
David killed Goliath with a SLING, which he was skilled at using. He went further to slay enemy kings, possessed territories via warfare of swords, spears and arrows.
Daniel the minister was reputed for his exceeding wisdom.
Through his COUNSEL, Isreal was preserved.
In rebuilding the land of Isreal, God used skilled men who were filled with the spirit, who understood times and season.
Moses's hands were lifted up in the battlefield while skilled men FOUGHT their way to victory.
Joshua led a courageous army of 300 to victory but they had to engage in battle to win.
Even Esther and Mordecai needed the King's RULING/PRONOUNCEMENT to save their people.
God also used Joseph the prime minister to save Isreal.
In battle, God uses the army; in governance, He uses those in political office...
In the new testament, where God's aim was to gather men to Himself in spirit and in truth, He used MEN OF LETTERS to pen His divine inspirations... Paul, peter, Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, James... He didn't miraculously force people to repent.
In getting men to be born again, God uses men to liberate man unto Himself.
In blessing, God has said that He would bless the WORKS of our hands; He doesn't rain down manna anymore.
Isaac, Esau, Jacob, David, Solomon...all walked in prosperity through the yield of their labour.
Ofcourse there's been times also, when God has miraculously saved mankind- Moses and the Exodus, Elijah, even the disciples and apostles wrought miracles.
And those times are not over. It still happens till tomorrow.
However, He has raised men of skill in various professions to dominate the world with their gifting. We have come to realize that it is by God that all things consist- all inventions, all knowledge, all possibilities.
I remember that we mocked Lt.Gen Tukur Burutai and the Nigerian army when they organized a Prayer crusade against terrorism in Nigeria.
We expected human warfare to be fought with instruments of warfare, not prayer.
So how come we are now expecting God to miraculously work wonders through our pastors to heal the world of this pandemic when we have medical practioners for that?!
As He has oftentimes done, God will use doctors, scientists skilled in the medical field to win this battle.
Science and technology- internet, telecom, medicine, machines...have all been used to the glory of God.
God have always used man and the instruments of man to save man.
Do not lose faith.
Do not denigrate Christianity.
God has not changed.
He has men with medical skill that will find solution to this covid-19 pandemic.
God bless our medical practioners and proactive governments.
God is still the same yesterday, today and forever.
Be of good cheer!

Did you just type this?
When God wanted to save the world? Wasn't it Noah's family he planned to save?
More like, "when God wanted to destroy the world, he used Noah to build an ark for himself and his family.
Well, asides that, most pastors claim to cure all types of sicknesses and diseases , and I mean" all types". Ranging from HIV to Cancer, to blindness from birth, hearing disability and all kinds of incurable diseases.
So why are they all cowering in fear at the sight of a mere virus?

Good eye...God actually saved Noah's family and any one who would have hearkened to Noah's teaching...but no one did except his immediate family.
Like the subject reads, God may not use pastors as we keep pressuring them to perform.
The ways of God are beyond ours. We must give room for other methods that God uses to save the world.
Don't condemn our pastors...they are just vessels that move according to the power at work in them.

They have not been giving the license to cure the virus.
They are still fasting and praying to get the license.

Joel Osteen has the biggest assembly in America; Lt Dr Miles Monroe had the biggest assembly in the Bahamas, Matthew Ashimolowo of KICC has the largest black assembly on the UK; Vatican city of Italy has the largest Christian gathering in the world.
India and China has over 1 billion Hindu/Buddha worshipers, Mecca has a daily assembly of millions of Islam worshippers.
So tell me again, how religion thrives only in black continent

I'm sure you know what im talking about.
Those countries you mentioned have the biggest and the best in everything. Ranging from residential apartments , farming, healthcare, military facilities, schools e.t.c. So having big worship centres doesnt come as a surprise.
The only sector that is well -spread and developed in Nigeria is the " religious" sector.
This still doesnt mean that we love each other as humans. NO. We are still the poverty capital and corruption base.
If we can have one functional factory for one religious building in Nigeria, unemployment and poverty will be eradicated. Sure. You will tell me that its the government's reponsibility to build those factories. Is it the government that built the religious buildings?
Prepare for the recession/ depression ahead. Im sure God wants us to learn the right thing.

Religion thrives in Africa because it cannot be substantiated.
Once it can be weighed and verified it becomes outside the purview of the African.

We all should learn from this Corona virus.
We cant last a week of lock down, hence we better not pray for a war.
It has shown the sectors that should be modified and grown. Food, Health, Security, Technology, Energy. All of which have great potentials to guarantee our continuous existence.
P.S: I have said this before "T.B Joshua should be in Italy, spain, Iran curing positive patients" ...why didnt their government consult him?
Food For Thought.

Pastors caused their present predicaments by themselves, this pandemic have just humbled them, and in fact put the age long argument to rest once and for all.
In a bid to gain more followership, Pastors had acted to the gallery by crossing boundaries to claim the divine ability to cure all Incurables...they even make fun of Doctors in their fake testimonies and dramatised Miracles...
The lesson to be learnt is, after this pandemic, let all you pastors go bk to your calling to preach salvation, and leave sick People for Doctors, enough of this stupidity.

I even doubt if I will continue going to church after this their jonsing esp miracle centred churches.
They should stop bragging with miracles as if its by their authority.
Even Pastor Chris's Healing school is on lockdown. He has now resorted to global prayer. This one don pass all those him braggadocio miracles.
God is trying to correct Christianity and put the real things in perspective.

But they can lay hand on fake blind and see?
They can lay hand on fake lame and walk?
What sort of hypocrisy
Fake ass Pastors

This is the quote of this season "The lesson to be learnt is,after this pandemic, let all you pastors go back to your first calling to preaching repentance and the coming of the Lord.
Leave sick people for Doctor."
