Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo v Busola Dakolo: Female clerics differ

Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo v Busola Dakolo: Female clerics differ

The social media has been awash with the story of Busola Dakolo, a celebrity photographer and wife of musician, Timi Dakolo, who accused the founder of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly Church (COZA), Pastor Abiodun Fatoyinbo, of rape. Mrs. Dakolo is the second high profile person after Ese Walter to accuse Fatoyinbo of rape. However, female ministers of God have expressed mixed feelings to ESTHER BAKARE on the matter

 

Apostle Faith Eden-Osakwe, President of Kingdom Redemption Outreach Center International with headquarters in USA and branches in Nigeria, said: “According to 2Corinthians 13:1: At the mouth of two or three witnesses the truth is confirmed. With the way the world is going, truth is no longer confined because 99 out of 100 people can agree to lie and only one is speaking the truth.

“If a lot of people are coming out to lay this allegation on the Pastor, I will advise that he takes a sabbatical and take time to reflect and be refreshed by the Holy Spirit.

“My advice to women, look for a woman like you that can hold you accountable, some that can jolt you back to life when you are at your weakest.

“To Busola Dakolo, I believe every action has a motive, why did she keep quiet all this while? Until she got married in the same church, I believe it is something that motivated her to speak out now, it may be vengeance but I advise both parties to go back to God and seek forgiveness.

“The issue of church leaders sleeping with their members has been on-going for so long, it is not an uncommon thing, I guess there is occultism about it, some use it to gain demonic powers, those that are married, their wives know about it and keep quiet. The unmarried ones would promise about 50 girls in the church marriage and will sleep with all of them and at the end of the day won’t marry any of them. I believe it is a plot of the devil to bring Christianity down.”

Deaconess Rachel Ajala of The Apostolic Church, Zaria in Kaduna State: “I commend Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo for stepping down as the Senior Pastor of COZA, I want to advise him to go on prayer and fasting to God Almighty to fight for him if he is not guilty and if he is guilty let him humble himself before God who will deliver him and forgive him his sins. We’re all sinners but we must be careful because he who carries the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ must be holy.”

Bishop Dr Priscilla Otuya, President Mothers of the Nations Organisations for Peace and Development: “Putting it very straight and simple, only God the Father in heaven and the parties involved know exactly what transpired and my take on the matter is that if indeed, and I repeat, if the Pastor really raped this lady no matter how long ago he did it, he should just simply convene a delegate of elders he submits to and go to the lady to apologise and ask for forgiveness because the wrath of God is out against all forms of unrighteousness especially sexual sins and violence against women.

“If we will look at ourselves in the face and tell ourselves the truth, the organised Christendom is under siege and because sex is the door way to the soul and the easiest way to take souls captive, Satan and his cohorts have adopted it as a means of wreaking havoc amongst supposed ministers of the Gospel. He has unleashed strange children from the sea male and female against God’s true sons and daughters and I want to use this medium to state the fact that these strange children are everywhere in Christendom.

“Some are even operating as ministers of the Gospel, silently but powerfully derailing genuine ministers’ especially upcoming ones with the sex and the gospel of prosperity without commitment to Christ and his cause.

“Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood: Psalm.144 v 11

“Just yesterday, after our meeting in Nassarawa State, one of our coordinators opened up on her sickening ordeal with a senior ‘Man of God’ and I was so shocked beyond words and I want to use this medium to tell our male colleagues out there who know within their hearts that they are involved in sexual sin to come out clean now because they will not be able to deal with what is to come.

“The song on every lip on this matter and others like it is don’t judge, leave judgement to God, yes! No one has the power to judge a genuine servant of God, but minister to minister we are allowed to wade into disputes, etc and judge righteously to bring justice to the aggrieved party and repentance to the guilty, when we turn a blind eye to clear acts of evil and God decides to wade it, his Judgement is anything but funny as it is written, it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

“For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged 1 Corinthians 11 v 31. We have been sweeping things under the carpet and the owner of the church is sweeping them out and this is the beginning of Revelations to come on, he has come to judge what we humans cannot judge and no one can stand in his way.

“It is a good thing that our beloved brother heeded the advice to step down until the truth is unravelled and I thank God that both parties are of the Christian fold and we have ways prescribed for settling disputes etc., and I pray that both parties find a way to resolve this within the prescribed ways according to our faith and the first step as I said in the beginning is true repentance and genuine apology.”

Apostle Fidel Chimezie, the founder of Nigeria Ministers Project and Apostolic Discipleship Project (ADPRO): “First of all, the Bible says in Ephesians 5 vs 3: ‘But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints’.

“We are in a society where people take revenge, if that lady is sure of the allegation then she also need to pray for divine intervention in this matter and if she said it out of revenge then she should ask for forgiveness.

“The stepping down of the pastor from to pulpit, to me is a welcome idea, the pastor also needs help of senior ministers of God, and they need to support him in spiritual counselling and prayers so that he does not completely get derailed from the body of Christ.

This battle is against the church.”

Pastor (Mrs) Biodun Eresanara of Power of His Love Ministry: “So much has been written/said concerning the rape issue between Pst Biodun Fatoyinbo and Busola/Timi Dakolo.

“First, we must understand that rape is a criminal offence, it is heinous and wicked. So I am against rape and any sexual assault.

“I am not in the position to judge either of those affected, but I believe justice should take its course. Infact this issue should not be mentioned amongst Ministers of God.

“2nd Timothy 2:19 says ‘Nevertheless, the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal. The Lord knows those who are His and let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.’

“Pastors should be careful with their conduct and character.

“Sexual immorality is real in the church and I believe God is set to sanitize and sanctify His church.

“Pastor Fatoyinbo has made the right move by stepping down. Lies can linger for some time but the truth will definitely triumph.

“I stand for the truth which I know will soon be revealed.

“For the Dakolos, I applaud Busola’s courage to speak out. Rape is traumatic and only the person affected can understand the feeling. Her confession has been faulted by many but I’m glad, her courage and braveness has encouraged many victims to speak out.

“But as Christians, the issue would have been handled biblically, they should have spoken to the elders first (not necessarily their church elders) there are fathers of faith in the land not the media.

“However, this is a warning to those pastors taking advantage of the flock of Christ instead of taking care of them.

“Enough is enough, so many women are being molested regularly in our churches and this nonsense must stop.

“Is it not shameful to make sexual advances to a girl/lady/woman who calls you ‘daddy’?

“For Pastor Fatoyinbo and Busola’s case, what is required is justice, healing and restoration.

“And we must not forget to pray for them.

“At this time, we must intercede for both parties, only Jesus can heal the wounded souls.

“And for the body of Christ, it’s time for ‘Repentance and Revival’

Catholic priest is beneficiary of brand new car from Bishop Zuga

Catholic priest is beneficiary of brand new car from Bishop Zuga
  • Part of his 1000 car gift programme for 2020

 

Popular Bishop Dr. Sam Zuga of Jehovah’s Field Marshall has handed over a brand new Peugeot 406 car to Rev. Fr Cletus Asronyi, the Chaplain to St. Anthony’s Catholic Hospital Zaki-Biam, Benue State.

The founder of both Sam Zuga Foundation and House of Joy Ministry Worldwide made the presentation at Transcorp Hilton Abuja on Wednesday.

This is after his inauguration of a committee for the distribution of 1,000 cars, jobs opportunities and start-up capital for small businesses, with Fr. Asornyi as its head.

Addressing the committee members, Bishop Zuga disclosed that Fr. Asornyi has served God and man for more than 30 years as a priest but has no car or bicycle to his name.

For him, it means the priest, unlike many other men of God in our contemporary society, is either faithful, or unfortunate or contemptuous in life.

“However, since he has been appointed as the Chairman of the committee, it is only logical that he (Fr. Asornyi) needs to be the first to taste the food before serving others,” the Bishop said.

Bishop Zuga said that he would not want to be alive to see Fr. Asornyi live and end up in life like Willy Lomans in Author Miller’s “Death of a Salesman”; who died with neither love nor substance after sacrificing his many years to the service of his master.

Eid el-Maulud; Chief Imam urges Nigerians to exhibit trust, selflessness

Eid el-Maulud; Chief Imam urges Nigerians to exhibit trust, selflessness

Sheik Abdul Isola, Chief Imam of Islamic Centre, Uwani, Enugu, has urged Nigerians to emulate the exemplary lifestyle of Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him (PBUH) by exhibiting trust and selflessness.

Isola gave the admonition on Sunday in Enugu while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on the celebration of 2019 Eid el-Maulud.

Eid el-Maulud is the celebration of birthday of Prophet Muhammad PBUH.

The cleric noted that the Prophet left a practical and shining example of trust while discharging his ministry on earth.

“The lack of trust and fear of God among us as Nigerians have continued to breed all sorts of negativity in the country.

“Leaders should exhibit trustworthiness by delivering what belongs and is meant for the people to them.

“While the lead, should reciprocate, by praying for the leaders and obeying simple civic laws and instruction meant for the betterment of all,’’ Isola, who is also the Chief Missioner of the Centre, said.

He noted that Nigerians must learn to be selfless as Prophet Muhammad PBUH; which endeared him to everyone that came in contact with him.

“Be your brother’s keeper. Do not keep acquiring wealth without using it to better the lives of those within your immediate environment,’’ he said.

The cleric, however, enjoined leaders, especially political office holders, to use the people’s wealth entrusted on them judiciously and for the common good of all.

“They should take practical steps on the creation of employment and other forms of engagement for the youths in order to check restiveness and idleness that breeds crime and criminality,’’ he added.

Congregation defiant of regime sanctioned Church demolition pays off

Published

on

A

brave group of Chinese Christians who put their lives on the line for the sake of their church have achieved a major win against the oppressive communist regime.

 

Last Friday, members of Wugaozhuang Church of Guantao in Hebei Province were left horrified when government officials notified them of their church’s impending destruction. As Faithwire previously reported, the demolition had been ordered on account of the church, which is state-mandated, not being in possession of all the required permits.

 

But in a risky bid to sway the government away from the action, church members decided to organize a stakeout, refusing to leave the site.

 

Now, it appears that this brave show of defiance has paid off.

 

After a series of negotiations between parish priests and government officials, an agreement has been reached.

 

“Eventually, the state officials relented and promised to provision the church a new parcel of land and 200,000 Yuan to rebuild a church building upon that land,” reported persecution watchdog, International Christian Concern. “The priests have demanded the land be granted immediately in return for relinquishing the present church building, although it is presently unknown whether or not the land promised has been turned over.”

 

During the stakeout, police reportedly blocked those attempting to deliver food to the faithful inside the building.

 

“Local police blockaded the scene and prohibited anyone from entering or leaving,” a parishioner told UCA News. “Even food was not allowed in to coerce the priests and church members into giving up the protest.”

 

Considering the government’s relentless campaign of destruction against churches across the country, this will be viewed as a win for the embattled congregation, who refused to be cowed by the brutal state forces.

 

Earlier this month, a 3,000-member church in Anhui province was bulldozed as congregants worshipped. Another church was flattened in Henan province.

 

Do continue to pray for all those who face persecution on account of their religious beliefs.

The word of God is ultimate

The word of God is ultimate

T

he book of  Jeremiah 44:28 says, “Yet a small number that escape the sword shall return out of the land of Egypt into the land of Judah, and all the remnant of Judah, that are gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, shall know whose words shall stand, mine, or theirs.”

 

 

The Bible speaking in Ecclesiastic chapter 8:4 says, “Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?”

 

Words are the intent of the heart which is spoken as a communication process.   It is the thought of the inner self in action, The inside out of a man. When the heart is evil oriented, the word when transformed produces devastating effects that brings problems to the victims.  When God’s words are directed to the children, its transformation into action brings good tidings to the beneficiaries.   Whereas when the devil speaks, its intention has always been to cause destruction.  In preference God’s words are what people want to hear because of its accompanying good result.   And whenever the word of God is spoken, it is accorded recognition and it prevails against any other thing.

 

Our father in Heaven whose word is final on  everything has decided through this message to challenge the voices, words of the enemies and human agents of the devil who have said one thing or the other against your family, career, business, marriage, future or life.   Today, all such voices or evil words of the enemy targeted against you will be nullified in the name of Jesus.

 

Matt. 15:13 says, 13 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.”  As long as that evil voice or works of darkness in your life or situation is not from God, it is going back to the sender in Jesus name.  The voice of God and His counsel shall stand in your life and this is not negotiable.  Maybe some evil reports have been made against you and you have been worried to the extent that you can no longer sleep or you are afraid as a result of one report or the other which suggests that your situation is not reversible, I want to tell you to forget such reports, and trust in God. He will not allow the devil to prevail in your life because He has the final say. His word makes the impossibility to become possible.

 

 

Believe the report of the servants of God of whom I am one of them and your negative situation and worldly report shall be reversed in Jesus name.   The report of God that I have for you today is that the word of God is final and His counsel in your life and situation shall stand.

 

Some men in the Bible days, even in the present day have spoken emphatically, and authoritatively on issues as though they were infallible. But God usually disappoints them, as He intervenes on behalf of His people with superior words. And the result is confidence, and victory for His people. 

 

I do not know of anyone who may have spoken against you as if he has the final say or of a situation that may be raging against you pretending to be the final word on your case; if there be any, it will not stand. Because only God has the final word in your matter.  Exodus 5:1-2 says,

 

And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, ‘’Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness’’. 2 And Pharaoh said, ‘’Who is the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go’’ This was Pharaoh opposing the word of God on the liberation of the Israelites. The consequence was that Egypt was almost destroyed before Pharaoh hurriedly let the Israelites go.  God has determined your freedom and His word is final authority in your life and situation.  Pharaoh had no authority over your life to act as if he is God.”

 

Exodus 6:1 says, Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land’’.

 

There is no controversy on the authority of God in matters concerning this world and the people therein.  He created heaven and earth and He has the power to control all the living and non-living things in the earth.   He has power to control all the forces both divine and devilish in  the earth, and beneath the earth.   God is out to protect his people.  He alone has the good words and power. And  by implication, whenever any genuine child of God, whose name is in the book of life utters a word, God will stand by it.

Engaging the spirit of joy for effective praise

Engaging the spirit of joy for effective praise

W

elcome to another exciting week! I hope you were blessed by the last teaching. Today, we shall focus on: Engaging the Spirit of Joy for Effective Praise!

 

 

We recognise form scriptures that praise remains ineffective except it is built on joy. Joy is the springboard for praise and when we lack it, our praises becomes ineffective. This is why among others, some people dance and sweat but get nothing out of praise.  It is written, …Is any merry? let him sing psalms (James 5:13). So, if we are not merry, we are not qualified to praise. As established in scriptures, we have been admonished to, Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing (Psalm 100:2). Therefore, we need to engage the fountain of joy to have express access to what it takes to remain on the praise frequency, no matter our situations.

 

What Then Brings About Joy?

 

•Celebrating The Word: One of the great streams of the river of joy is the Word of God. The Holy Spirit releases and sustains joy in the life of the believer by helping him make discoveries in the Word of God, which keep him rejoicing at all times (Psalm 119:162; 1 Corinthians 2:9-10).

 

 

•Rejoicing In Hope: Hope is another stream in the river of joy and it is a product of the Word of God as revealed by the Holy Spirit. It stabilises the heart and imparts joy in the inner man. This is practically illustrated in Job 14:7-9, For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. …and bring forth boughs like a plant (Job 14:7-9). We cannot be hopeful without being joyful. We are only downcast when we become hopeless. Hope sparks off joy and releases a new life on our inside that keeps us singing even when people think it is crazy to do so. Thus, as we keep celebrating our discoveries in the Word of God, hope is released, which further strengthens our joy and makes our praises acceptable.

 

 

In summary, no matter how hard you try, this teaching will not benefit you if you are not born again. Are you born again? If you are not, this is an opportunity to do so. Simply say the following prayer: Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious Blood. Today, I accept You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me! Now, I know I am born again!

Begin the long trek to success

F

or you to actualize your destiny, it is important that you live your life in compliance to the provision of the book of Romans12:1- 2 which states: “I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is good, and acceptable and perfect will of God”.

 

 

Be a living sacrifice and you will know the perfect will, plan, purpose and counsel of God for your life. It is important to note that with determination, perseverance, focus and prayers one can change his or her ugly destiny into a good one; just like the story of Jabez as the book of 1Chronicles 4:9-10. He was destined to be a failure. His ugly name “Jabez” which means sorrow influenced his life negatively. When he woke up to the realization of that fact, he prayed a radical prayer of aggression and violence, telling God to change his situation and bless him indeed. God answered his prayers, and he became more honorable than his brethren.

 

 

Some people erroneously believe that they are destined to fail. This negative self-image usually arises out of what people tell them, or out of their own personal experiences. But this is very untrue. Indeed every man was created with a glorious destiny. Thus no matter how deep you have fallen into the pit of life, you can decide to climb out and begin the long trek to the place of success. Listen to these stories.

 

 

I heard a story of a girl called Jennifer, who became a prostitute at the tender age of fourteen. This was not in the mild mold of being a call girl, but in the crude fashion of living in a brothel. But when she came to herself, she got out, dusted herself and finished her secondary education. She later got married to a decent young man and was a house wife for about ten years. She was blessed with three boys and one girl. Suddenly she woke up one day with the dream of becoming a lawyer. She enrolled in a university and today she is a practicing lawyer.

 

 

Oprah Winfrey’s life offers another great story. Winfred is the hostess of the highly rated Oprah Winfred show. She was born out of wedlock. Her parents were mere teenagers living in rural poverty in the highly racial Southern USA. She was raped when she was only nine; and for the next five years, she was sexually abused by several men, including close relations. This led her to lead a wild life of sexual indecency, making her mother to attempt sending her to a home for wayward girls. But the saving grace was that there was no space to take her. Then at fourteen, she became pregnant but the child died in premature birth.

A

n adage, I was not born with gold or silver spoon in my mouth. I struggled to become what I am has become the favourite speech of many persons. Being born with silver or gold spoon means you inherited the wealth of your parents. Is that bad? I wish I was born with silver or gold spoon in my mouth.

 

This adage is related to what is today called Spoon Theory. For instance gold or silver spoons are synonymous with inherited wealth. It describes someone who has a prosperous background or is of a well-to-do family.

 

One can see where he/she belongs.  The purpose of this message is to increase your earnings, or to raise your spoon class, to make your family inheritance to increase to the next or next two classes. It is possible. Your spoon class depends on the wealth of your parents. Also the future of the children largely depends on the wealth of the parents.

 

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: (2 Peter 1:3)

 

The Lord has provided all things you need in this life, including wealth because He is the owner of all wealth on earth and in heaven. We only acquire and inherit them by appropriate knowledge. Only God can translate you from one spoon class to the other through your faith.

 

Infact, the Lord says in Psalm 75:6, 7  For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.  But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.

 

It is only God that can promote you to the next level no matter your age and job. If you blame Satan for not promoting you, you have changed verse 7, to but Satan is the judge: he putheth down one, and setteth up another. If you blame your boss, you are replacing God with your boss … but Boss is the judge: he putheth down one and setteth up another. If you blame your enemy, then you are replacing God in verse 7 with your enemy: But Enemy is the judge, he putheth down one and setteth up another. The moment you blame anyone for not being promoted, you have unconsciously replaced God with that person. Never blame anyone at all for your condition, and if you have done so, ask God for forgiveness and see what He will do next for you.

 

By virtue of the fact that you are child of God (John 3:16) “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

 

For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body (Rom. 8:15, 23).

 

We are His children and our God-parent is wealthiest Person so we have very wealthy background. We are Gold Spoon class. Believe it. Behave like one, and receive the appropriate inheritance, through the Cross or death of the Lord Jesus Christ.
