Matthew 25:27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.
Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
As heirs of God, we have claim to peace here on earth and eternal life after our sojourn on Earth. Becoming a millionaire is not part of the deal. What happens what we see today is a congregation who wants those that will tell them their millions is on the way if only they will dare to have a big faith by releasing what they have. The bible says: 2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
Those christian who have deep root and personal experience of being born again know that God does not have a bank in heaven and that nothing made by man can find its way into heaven, for flesh and blood can not enter there, conversely what is invented by sinful man can not work there too.The bible says we shall be changed: 1 Corinthians 15:52-53 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. When God hands is upon you for a financial blessing, he appoints human or create a situation in your life that will attract money if you follow it. If not, it will not happen, for the spirit of God does not strife with man. It is not a must that a child of God must be a millionaire. Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. This is a blessed assurance we can all depend and rely on. It is God’s word that does not fail. It is God’s word that is new every morning and suitable for the next century if Christ tarries. However, there is nothing wrong with being rich.Deuteronomy 8:18 But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. As children of Abraham, by faith, those who really want to be rich can key into the verse by faith and be serious with your livelihood.Proverbs 10:4 He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
Matthew 17:27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.
The above shows that there is no limiting what God can do yet. This was an exceptional event and not a way of life. Many times while on his father’s work, Jesus and his disciple often go hungry see Mark 11:12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
When Apostle Suleiman told attendees during one of his ministration in Atlanta, United States of America, Little did he know all those who heard him in audio or video would not swallow it up hook, line and sinker. Amongst them, One man who refused to let it go as usual is Israel Balogun. Israel went on internet and denounce the whole thing, calling it a SCAM.
” Apostle Suleman, during the said ministrations, claimed he commanded Angels to send money mysteriously to worshippers. In a comical display, some worshippers came out with their phones to meet him in the pulpit to ‘testify’ that they had received credit alerts from the unseen “Angels” as commanded by Suleman. Soon the apostle got wind of this antagonist and and did something:Enraged by Balogun’s views, Apostle Suleman briefed his lawyers to write to him to apologize within seven (7) days. Although the letter from his solicitors is dated 27th July 2021, they sent it to Israel Balogun via WhatsApp on 3rd August 2021.
The lawyers gave him a seven-day deadline to retract the publications alongside an apology for the perceived offence.
Barrister Inibehe, Balogun’s lawyer, however, said barely 24 hours after his client got the letter, he got an invitation from the police. The letter from the police reads:, “This office is investigating a case of Criminal Defamation and Cyberstalking in which your name features prominently. In the above’s light and in the spirit of fair hearing, we request you to an interview the undersigned in room 408, 3rd floor, Force CIID Complex Area 10, Garki, Abuja on 11th August 2021, 1000hrs unfailingly.” Israel Balogun should report to the Force headquarters on Friday, August 13, over an alleged case of “Criminal Defamation and Cyberstalking.”
Balogun’s lawyer is also reacting to the whole story, saying he has advised his client to remain cool and collected while it last he said,
“However, it is important to alert the public, civil society, media and the international community our client received that barely 24 hours after the solicitors to Mr Suleman had written to from the Nigeria Police Force.
“We have advised our client as law-abiding citizens to honour the police invitation; while hoping that the police will act professionally and respect the constitutional rights of our client.
“We call on the Inspector-General of Police to save the country from the ensuing embarrassment and the damage the actions of the police, in this case, may do to the image of the country before the international community.
“Nigeria is currently facing severe financial and economic challenges. Apostle Suleman should help the country out of her predicament by commanding his “Angels” to assist the country with his so-called miracle money.
“We hope responsible and God-fearing Christian leaders in Nigeria will have the courage to speak out against the desecration of their faith.
“The eyes of the nation and the world are on the Nigeria Police Force.
It is high time the children of God get acquainted with God’s promises . God only keeps his promises . Getting rich is a principle when followed by anyone can become rich hence, you have many who are rich and not part of God yet. Sadly, there are many lazy christian who hides under the cloak that God is a miracle worker and soon they will become rich when such christian hears about the controversial message like the one by our Apostle they are beside themselves with glee and excitement thinking it is faith on display. It behooves us to believe in miracles as christian, but we do not expect the miraculous daily. We live by faith daily, not miracles. Such faith makes us to do our part and professes God’s ability to meet our needs. Some may say in the book of Matthew 17:27 Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee. The above passage should not be exploited by any man of God to siphon, hoodwink, pilfers any child of God this wrong scriptural application is got to stop!
