According to the church, “the 29-year-old mom who was deeply and intensely lost in worship, lifted up her hands and slumped.”

Below is the tribute from the church:
“The StandPoint Church together with the families of the Iyawe’s and Obaseki’s, soberly announce to the public the passing of Mrs. Omamen Iyawe, a profoundly treasured mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend. Oma, the wife of Pastor Idahosa Iyawe, Assistant Pastor of The StandPoint Church.

“She was called to glory on the 4th of March 2018. It was a glorious exit. As Oma, deeply and intensely lost in worship, lifted up her hands, she was called to a higher place of praise and worship.

“Oma was a beautiful soul, an admirable shining example, and a source of inspiration to many people in and outside The StandPoint Church.

“Oma will surely and terribly be missed by many. We cry and we grieve, but we also rejoice in this glorious translation because we know that Omamen Iyawe is not in our past, but alive in our future.

“And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died, so you will not grieve like people who have no hope.

For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died”. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 (NLT)

“At this time, let us keep the family in our prayers. We all should be strong and strengthen each other in faith.”

Tithe is too small for me – Pastor reveals how he makes his money

Published

on

Controversial Ghanaian pastor and founder of the International Godsway Church, Daniel Obinim, has said in an interview that tithe is too small for him.
According to him, every pastor has his own way of making money. For him, his own money comes from the people he helps because they reward him in return.
The clergyman said:
“Just last week, some couple came to the church to give a testimony that, they have never given birth and they planned to do an artificial insemination which could have cost them almost 60,000 dollars. But I told them to stop and I will help them to give birth which I did.”
“So after that, they came back to the church to give me 20,000 cedis for helping them give birth. And right in the church, he gave me that sum of money in a polythene bag to the witness of the church members.”
“Some even buy cars for me. So the money comes from the help I give to people and in return, they also give me money or help me as well. The tithe is too small, as for tithe, no..it is too small.”

I will shut up if Buhari stops killings – Apostle Suleman fires back at father

Published

on

Founder of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleiman has responded to the counsel of his biological father not to criticize President Mohammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
In an interview with Vanguard on Thursday, the cleric reiterated that the Buhari-led administration should take the issue of the security of lives and property of the citizenry seriously.
His words: “My father is my number one hero in this life and I respect him so much; hence I would never hurt his feelings over any sort of domestic or public matters.
“Ordinarily speaking, I wouldn’t have responded to my father’s press statements, based on my cultural upbringing that prohibits children from reacting to parental chastening, but rather accept the wisdom that comes out of such actions
“But let me state that, I have never been interested in any form of political activities or happenings all my life; neither do I belong to any political party/association. I am an ardent crusader for equity and justice for all.”
The fiery preacher warned those bent on creating problems in his private life all in the name of politics to get busy with more productive issues.
“Being a preacher and a defender of the gospel of Jesus Christ for many years, I find it hard to keep mute and pretend, or even look away while Christians and innocent people of other faith are being massacred at random.
“Its against my belief. Hence, I have consistently cried out to the government for quick intervention. My simple offence is that I speak against the activities of herdsmen who kill Christians and defenceless Nigerians at will and get away with it.
“While no government body or security agency seem to be doing or saying anything about it. I reiterate my position today, that I shall not stop talking about it, calling on the government to rise to its responsibility of protecting lives and property of the Nigerian people.
“Neither will I stop condemning the state of insecurity in Nigeria and the unabated spate of killings of innocent citizens of our land by those who are ordinarily supposed to have been criminalized, proscribed and prosecuted by now.
“I have never been against any Government let alone the APC government. But I urge the President and his cabinet to do the needful in curbing the high rate of insecurity ravaging our country.

“Mr. President should also rise up and do justice to all Nigerians; irrespective of the people’s socio-political, ethnic or religious affiliations. Let the killing of Christians stop and will keep quiet,” he said.
