The founder of LoveWorld Incorporated also known as Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, on Thursday warned people who criticise clerics to desist from the act.
Pastor Oyakhilome gave this warning in his New Year message to his congregation on Thursday.
The cleric noted that people who are fond of criticising ministers of God are cursed.
Oyakhilome also advised people to desist from “waging war” against the church of God, describing it as a revered institution which cannot be defeated.
He said, “I usually tell those in my ministry, don’t criticise God’s people, especially the ministers of God. Leave them alone for the Bible says ‘whatever they do, they do them unto the Lord.”
“You’re not the one to accuse another man’s servant. Don’t join anybody to criticise other ministers. I tell my family members the same thing. Leave them alone because there are curses against those who do so.”
“If you do, you find out sickness won’t leave your home; there would always be one terrible thing about your family. So, don’t join those who do that, they are ignorant.”
“Don’t let any man push you against the church of Christ, it doesn’t matter what your political position is. Refuse to accept anyone telling you to destroy the church.”
“Whatever you want to do, do it, but don’t touch the church of God. I warn you, leave the churches of God alone. The church of God cannot be defeated.”
Meanwhile, the founder of Ghana-based Prophetic Hill Chapel Prophet Nigel Gaisie has predicted that Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will replace Muhammadu Buhari as president in 2021.
Naija News reports that the Ghanaian cleric revealed his prophecy for the New Year during his church crossover service on Thursday.
