|Those Saying Pastors Are Stealing Risk God’s Wrath— Oyedepo by Nellyfrancis157: 11:50pm On Dec 11, 2020|
The President of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, has said he stopped receiving salary from the Church many years ago, warning that the people saying men of god are stealing from the Church were at risk of God’s wrath.
Bishop Oyedepo, who preached at the “Encounter Night” at ongoing Shiloh 2020, said: “The blessings of the Lord maketh rich and add no sorrow with. There is a difference between the blessings of the Lord and the blessings of the effort of man.
“Those saying these people are stealing will just rain curse of the Lord on themselves. Prosperity is not on what you are given, but in what you give.”
Oyedepo preached on ‘Unveiling the Turnaround Wonders of the Altar of Sacrifice’, stating that his home is like a hotel.
“I have always had people living with me even when I was living in one room apartment.
“The last time I counted I had about 22 people working for me. I didn’t bring a dime into ministry. God is too big to be helped.
“Men are not the builders of Churches, God said he will build his church and the gates of hell will not prevail.
“I still sleep like a baby. I never asked God to enrich me, I only suçceeded in passing the test of sacrifice. Every child of God that works genuinely in the convenant have a great future.
“Many years ago, I told God if you ever bless me, I will build churches,” Oyedepo added.

Pastors are definitely stealing! God's wrath will be real to them on judgement Day!

Wisdom resides In your words Sir, you may not be stealing but some are stealing, we leave them to their God.

not because he was concerned about the poor, but because he was a thief.
As keeper of the money box, he used to steal what was put into it.
i.e. since he was in charge of the disciples’ money, he often stole some for himself
because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it)"
- John 12:6

How are they stealing and from who

Build churches for God or branches for yourself?
Branches like those in far away Ghana that would be remitting a certain amount to you on a regular basis, instead of using them to take care of the poor in the branches.
Is that what Peter and the other apostles, leaders of the first church, were doing?
Were they not using the money gotten from the church to take care of those in the church?
What does it mean to steal in God's sight?
When Jesus said that the leaders in the House of God had turned it into "a den of thieves?" What did He mean by that saying?
Did He mean the leaders were literally carrying guns, breaking into people's houses and robbing them at gun-point?
I think not, but they were doing these according to Jesus:
*Turned the House of God into a house of merchandise
*Placed money (tithing) above the more important matters of God's Word.
*Keeping to themselves things that belonged to the poor, like money which ought to be given to the poor and widows whose houses they devoured.
*And many more
That's more or less what you're doing.
It's a shame that these modern day Pharisees think that everyone who calls them to order because of their excesses was ignorant of the ways of God that they would be able to intimidate with such threats to silence them.
If na by raining curses, no one would be still be criticizing or opposing them, because it's not today that they started to curse and threaten people. It's their nature.
They threaten people with curses to pay tithes.
They threaten people, (their enemies) with curses to lose elections.
They threaten people with curses for calling out their excesses
But their curses and threats have proven overtime to be powerless to show that God is not with them.
They should stop misleading people, otherwise they shouldn't expect us to stop holding them accountable.

O my children, brave Nephilim, When shall you learn the truth? Adonai Yahweh nor all his angels Have not one chain's link to bind you Save those that you would forge And put about yourself with full will. No fire is there into which they would cast you Save that which your minds would kindle. They have no authority over man Save that man would, deluded, kneel And acknowledge such illusion of power With which the Elohim would beguile. Why are you led again and again Into that same trap which snared those that came before? What words are there for me to speak By which you would realise this And take care against such deceits?

The Pastorpreneurs are saying this one to further enslave the sheep into parting away with their money.
God does not need your money to build mansions in heaven.

Nellyfrancis157:what is wrong with these people always using wrath of God to make empty threats?
Why not go ahead to say you did not steal from the church must you make threats?
Who are you threatening?

jesusjnr2020:Stop studying your bible like recharge card digits.

CodeTemplar:What else would I expect from a mammon infested brain but such a comment?
Repent or face the real God's wrath!

Emmanuelcann:Three set of people that are angry about oyedepo are..
1..Catholic Christians who lack deep knowledge of the Bible..
2..The Muslim who believes there is here after but do not know how to get there..
3.The Atheists who do not believes in the existence of God and have single knowledge of how He works.
You belong to one of the group.... catholism.
|Re: Those Saying Pastors Are Stealing Risk God’s Wrath— Oyedepo by Emmanuelcann: 6:44pm On Dec 12, 2020|
Toktee:Sorry but you missed it. I am a born again, Bible believing, KJV only Christian! Stop giving the reverence due to Christ alone to dubious "gods of men!" - By their fruits you shall know them, that's if you believe and study your Bible (not the perversions of the Bible!)
|Re: Those Saying Pastors Are Stealing Risk God’s Wrath— Oyedepo by Toktee(m): 6:48pm On Dec 12, 2020|
Emmanuelcann:Believe His prophet and......?
Complete that statement only then i will believe you.
|Re: Those Saying Pastors Are Stealing Risk God’s Wrath— Oyedepo by Emmanuelcann: 7:04pm On Dec 12, 2020|
Toktee:I don't need you to believe me - who am I? You need to believe God through his word. And the Bible says that you should test the spirits whether they are of God. It also says in Acts 17:11 that you should be like the Berean Christians who checked everything Apostle Paul preached to them with the scriptures! You're quoting 2 Chronicles 20:20 - you will prosper.

Whenever a thief starts threatening you with the wrath of God, then something is fishy.
