Addressing his congregation as posted by Heavenly Mandate, the billionaire pastor said, “Before 2003, in this part of the country, Church people were not rich”.
“Wealth was in the hands of the occult men. Then in 2003, we had a crusade in a place called Civic Center Port Harcourt. And I prayed a prayer, I will never forget; and I said, ‘Today, wealth turns from the occult men to the hands of the Church.’
“When I prayed that prayer, physically they came to this place. One certain man, a Commissioner then, under a government said, ‘Sir, you have troubled us; no man troubles us like this. Why do you trouble us like this? Why did you pray that kind of prayer?
“He came with armed men; they were to bring this Church down then. I said if you bring one block down here and you see tomorrow morning, God is not the owner of this Church. And the military men with him looked at him; they stepped back with their guns. He said, ‘na so Church man dey pray? (Is that how a Church man prays?).
“God told me, ‘Don’t you know the prayer you prayed reacted in the spirit realm?’
“And that was when the Church began to have money. Before now, when a pastor wants to do something they will invite unbelievers. Church nolonger rely on the unbelievers or government. In fact, it is the Church that now support the government.
“Now, with all humility, there’s nobody who can be governor without this Church. It’s impossible! If you dare this kind of Church, you will never be governor.
“Even if they want to vote you tomorrow, I will pray you out. I have all the powers to say, ‘don’t sit on that seat and you won’t sit.’ It’s not a matter of boasting, it’s with authority. Anybody say ‘I play with the Church,’ a day to your sitting you will clear. If you know the power with the Church you can’t play with the Church.
“The Church has played down on herself so politicians think they can toy with us. No, that politician has not been born, that can toy with the Church of Jesus!
“I decree with authority, whoever will not respect the Church will never sit on any seat!
– In Nigeria, in this nation, anyone that will toy with the Church of Jesus will never be a president of Nigeria in the name of Jesus!
