The founder of Mount Zion Faith Ministries International, Mike Bamiloye, says some pastors are now confused about choosing between heaven and earthly possessions.
The 59-year-old clergyman took to his Instagram page on Tuesday to address the recent developments with “ministers and God”, explaining that many are not sure of heaven and don’t want to lose their earthly empire.
“Some ministers of God are confused. They’re not sure of heaven and they don’t want to lose their empire on earth. They are not expecting him,” he wrote.
Bamiloye’s post comes at about same time when Matthew Ashimolowo, a London-based Nigerian pastor, lambasted his colleagues for attributing the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic to 5G and antichrist.
Ashimolowo had lamented that it was unfortunate that many people, including pastors, have joined in the fray of spreading falsehood without any scientific proof.
He had also urged Christians to avoid being deceived by some church leaders who often associate any major technology breakthrough or shock in the world to the antichrist.
“Yeah, there may be things that are pointers to the last days. But not everything that happens around us should make us think that the antichrist wants to take over our lives,” Ashimolowo had said.
This had prompted Newsmen to carry out a recent fact-check on such claims.
