Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has slammed fashionable Lagos-based clergyman and senior pastor of the Family of God Church, Chris Okotie, over the cryptic publish he shared few days after clergyman, Prophet T.B Joshua died final Sunday, June 6.
Okotie and Joshua had been by no means mates as the previous had all the time suspected the latter’s ”supply of energy.” Okotie had even come out in public to query Joshua’s authenticity as a person of God.
Days after Joshua who’s the founding father of the Synagogue Church of Nation died, Okotie shared a cryptic publish many interpreted to be an assault on TB Joshua’s reminiscence. Part of his publish learn
”The wizard at Endor who assumed the title Emmanuel, has been consumed by divine indignation. And now his disciples bewail his ignominious exit.”
Joshua throughout his apply as a priest used the time period ”Emmanuel” throughout church service.
FFK who’s a pal of the deceased clergyman has come out to publicly assault Okotie. In a publish shared on his social media deal with this morning, FFK slammed Okotie for talking sick of the clergyman.
Describing Okotie as a coward, FFK mentioned if anybody was a wizard, it should be Okotie and that God will ”punish” him for attacking Joshua.
His prolonged publish reads
“Africans don’t have fun nice males. They slightly take enjoyment of celebrating mediocre males. Africans fortunately destroy nice males and if attainable search for their errors to nail them. So unhappy that they destroyed Prophet T.B. Joshua each day. Lastly he has left them and what he was doing, they cannot do! Evil continent!”- Prophet (Dr.) Emmanuel Badu Kobi, Superb Wave Church Worldwide, Accra, Ghana, 10th June, 2021.
Prophet Emmanuel Kobi has spoken the reality and he has spoken for hundreds of thousands. I commend his braveness.
Sadly Pastor Kris Okotie of Family of God Church Worldwide has taken one other course and confirmed Kobi’s issues in regards to the nature of the African.
While the remainder of the world is busy mourning Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua of the Synagogue of All Nations (SCOAN) and celebrating his excellent ministry and legacy, he has chosen to slander him in essentially the most grievous method even while his physique nonetheless stays within the mortuary!
He has mentioned essentially the most uncharitable and unprintable issues in regards to the Prophet which I refuse to repeat right here.
I’m all the time reluctant to hitch points publicly with women and men of God however Okotie’s insults on my pal and brother, who’s not right here to defend himself, are so grave and damaging that they can not go unanswered.
My response to him is as follows.
I’ve all the time had a lot respect and affection for you proper from the times that we had been on the Nigerian Legislation College in 1985.
Your life and ministry, together with the attractive songs you used to sing, fascinated and impressed me.
Nonetheless together with your foul-mouthed and harsh assault and completely inexplicable, irresponsible and unprovoked assault on the individual of TB Joshua, all that has gone with the wind. At present I’ve nothing however contempt, scorn and disdain for you and, merely put, I detest and despise you.
To borrow our President’s phrases, I’ll now speak to you within the language which you can perceive.
You mock my brother in demise but you seem to have forgetten that demise involves us all. It’s only a matter of time. Evidently you don’t have any respect for your self and no worry of the Dwelling God whom you declare to serve.
Even if you happen to by no means favored TB Joshua otherwise you had cause to suspect that his supply of energy was questionable, could not you’ve got simply saved your mouth shut and let these of us that believed in him, liked him and revered him mourn him in peace?
You search to villify and disgrace the reminiscence of a humble, light, respectable and type soul who was 1,000,000 instances the person and servant of God that you’re or may ever be and who has simply gone to fulfill his maker.
You insult the reminiscence of a person who was an incredible inspiration and supply of energy to hundreds of thousands of God-fearing and respectable folks from all around the world and you’ve got sought to dishonor and discredit his ministry, his reminiscence, his household, his mates and his legacy. God will certainly punish you for this.
Worse of all is the actual fact that you’re a coward who, as is attribute of all cowards, waited till he died and was not round to defend himself earlier than you opened your soiled little mouth to insult him.
You name him the wizard of Endor but when anyone is a wizard it’s you. If anybody is a magician it’s you. If anybody is a darkish drive and depraved soul that indulges in necromancy and satan worship, it’s you. If anybody is a follower of devil, it’s you. If anybody is a faux Pastor and false Prophet, it’s you.
The extra you try to dishonor a person like TBJ and produce sorrow to his spouse, youngsters, admirers, followers and Church members all around the world the extra God will trigger you to endure failure and sorrow and to shed tears.
There are hundreds of thousands of us that love this nice son of the South West and certainly Nigeria though we aren’t even members of his Church. We admire him and stand by him even in demise. You aren’t match to lick his footwear or to wash his posterior.
I counsel you to respect your self and respect the workplace and calling which you declare to have. I counsel you to put aside your hate-filled and envy-fuelled obsession with this nice man and depart him alone.
You are supposed to be a person of God who prays for and helps to heal the injuries of those that have suffered the lack of family members.
You aren’t meant to pour salt on these wounds and inflict much more ache by damning the reminiscence and destroying the legacy of these they’ve misplaced.
You might be additionally meant to hope for the forgiveness of the sins of the departed and name on the Lord to grant them everlasting peace.
You aren’t meant to ask God to punish them and ask for them to burn in hell.
What you’ve got accomplished and the phrases you’ve got used towards TBJ is a superb embarrassment to the Church, to each Christian and Muslim cleric and chief on this county and to each true believer.
It’s a shame. It’s an outrage. It’s insanity. It’s proof of a diseased thoughts, deep psychosis and power delusions of grandeur and I urge you to have your head examined.
Even the best sinner, as soon as repented, deserves God’s love, mercy and forgiveness in demise. That’s what the wonderful Gospel teaches us and that’s the reason our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, shed His blood on the cross.
None of us is freed from sin and all of us fall in need of the glory of God. You aren’t excellent and neither am I. We should all carry our crosses and burdens via this oftentimes troublesome journey of life and most of the time all of us face extraordinary challenges and make inexcusable errors.
That’s what makes us human and finally solely God has the proper to guage us. Solely He sees our hearts. Solely He is aware of our deepest secrets and techniques.
TBJ, although a tried and examined man of God who shook your entire world together with his outstanding ministry and who was undoubtedly certainly one of God’s ‘end-time’ Generals, by no means claimed that he was a Saint or that he was infallible and neither are you able to, me or anybody else.
We should all repent and make our peace with our God earlier than our life’s journey ends and we should accomplish that within the worry of our Lord and in all humility.
TBJ has run his race and completed his course and I’ve little question that he has been welcomed into paradise by the hosts of Heaven and our God.
I’ve little question that he would have acquired a large commendation for the nice work that he did for the Lord and the Church while on earth.
I’ve little question that the Lord would have thanked him for the hundreds of thousands of souls that he introduced into the Kingdom and led to Christ in his 40 years of ministry.
I’ve little question that he now resides in glory with our Resurrected Lord within the peace, consolation, blessing and pleasure of Heaven.
The query for folks such as you who search to decrease, destroy and decide him even in demise is whether or not you’ll ever get to Heaven as properly or whether or not, when your work on earth is completed, you’ll find yourself in hell the place each son and daughter of perdition, each unrepentant servant of devil and each hater and depraved soul is destined to go.
Allow me to finish with an insightful contribution from Mr. Igho David which you’d do properly to learn time and again. He mentioned,
“Even the demonic Jezebeel described the nice Jehu, who God had anointed to be King of Israel, as a assassin and all kinds of different names. But in actuality she was slightly the assassin, thief, liar, evil and possessed one and she or he was the one which was managed by the demons that her father had devoted her to and served. Jezebeel was rattling eloquent when she spoke about Jehu similar to Pastor Chris Okotie was when he spoke towards Prophet TB Joshua even at his demise. The spirit of Jezebeel would not simply imply a free, mendacity, depraved, hate-filled, manipulative and murderous lady with heavy make-up on her face and lengthy painted nails. The spirit of Jezebeel can possess and management even Pastors which are referred to as by God”.
Lastly hear this. Earlier than you mount your accursed pulpit, unleash your venomous tongue, cry your caustic cry and elevate your toxic pen to launch one more vicious and unprovoked assault towards an harmless and type soul who did nothing however make all these round him comfortable and who has simply handed away, I urge you to meditate on the next scriptures.
The Bible says, “let he who is freed from sin forged the primary stone”.
It says “contact not my annointed and do my Prophets no hurt”.
It says “who’s he that lays a cost earlier than God’s elect? It’s Christ that justifies!”
For a celebrated man of God such as you to neglect these admonitions is a grave error which can lead to unimaginable penalties for you and what stays of your tattered ministry.
Christianity is about being humane, type, charitable, light, long-suffering and humble.
It’s about having empathy for the weak, the struggling, the weak and people which are in ache.
It’s about loving the unlovable and forgiving those who have harm and offended you.
It’s about kindness, peace, long-suffering and the power and want to deliver pleasure to all these round you.
It’s about celebrating and inspiring the success of others which are leaders and members of the Physique of Christ and it’s about defending the mom Church from ridicule, disgrace, contempt and destruction from those that hate our Lord and who’ve contempt for our religion.
These are virtues and qualities that Prophet T.B. Joshua espoused and exhibited all through his life.
Any so-called man or lady of God who fails to understand these virtues, who refuses to acknowledge and apply them and who goes out of his or her strategy to destroy the status, identify and Ministry of his or her fellow clerics or, worse nonetheless, that of certainly one of God’s ‘end-time’ Generals, is unworthy of being referred to as a servant of God and is nothing however scum.
Such a creature is an enemy inside, an accuser of the brethren, an agent of Beelzebub, a mendacity snake, a self-absorbed nincompoop and a ravenous and savage beast.
Might God ship you and will you discover peace
