A LETTER TO THIS GENERATION OF SPIRITUAL FATHERS BY IYKE ORIAKU

A LETTER TO THIS GENERATION OF SPIRITUAL FATHERS OF SOME CHURCHES IN AFRICA … COMING FROM ONE OF THE MEN THEY HAVE FAILED…By Revivalist Iyke Oriaku

That their church is big does not mean their heart is right…

That they have branches all over the world does not score any goal in eternity…

That they run 10 times services and is planning to add more could even be a calculated assistance from hell… To preserve them for hell

You may be older than me, both in age and in ministry, but sir, there is something I saw in the church when I was born that you people are no more telling us…

You people have opened Bible schools everywhere to teach us how to succeed above others in ministry …and really, we are taking over other churches in our cities… We are are building more cathedrals, opening more branches…But yet, more people are backsliding in our cities more than before we came…

All the members of our churches were once members of other churches…

We set traps for them and catch them… None of our members can say how we met them as drug addicts, followed them up,until Christ was formed in them…

All the people we are bragging with are people who attended our programs and dropped their phone numbers. And we started following them up, bombarding them with bulk SMS… Not because we want them to stop going to hell, but because we want them to stop going to their mother churches…. They can still be holding their posts in their secret societies.. They can still be sleeping with all their directors in the offices…

If they have to go to hell, let it be from our churches… As long as we will use their tithes and offerings to build our cathedrals and be paying for our television programs…

That is why don’t have evangelism team in our churches,but we have strong building committees…

We no more preach about hell and heaven in our churches and honestly our crowd is increasing… Our finances is growing… And our choir is doing greatly… But in all these we have not seen that something is wrong with us…

This is the most deceived generation on pulpits…

We met fathers who are telling us not to condemn fake prophets…that we should even honour their invitations… After all, God said: “Judge not”…

They say we should be praying for them so that one day God will arrest them and start using them…And foolishly my half-baked generation have swallowed these Babylonian teachings because these are men who are controlling the biggest churches in our cities…

Sir,that they have height does not mean that they are right…

How can you call us to your ministers conference and be telling us that things have changed, therefore we should change the method of preaching and stop preaching about hell fire, or else, soon,we will have scanty chairs and it will not be good when people will be watching it on the television?

Man of God, a generation of preachers that is afraid to see scanty seats in their churches must lie to their generation… A crowd – hungry generation of preachers must compromise the standard…

No wonder the church is now lacking power!… No wonder our assistant pastors are known drug lords and bloody ritualists in towns…

No wonder our choristers are dragging and fightng themselves over all the married men in our churches who they are dating… No wonder, no one comes out for altar call in our churches, because to them, coming to answer altar call is for people who does not understand grace…

Our version of the message of grace has launched more people to hell … We have robbed our members of the real benefit of grace, because of our own avaricious interpretatjons of grace…And we are bragging in town that we are controlling big names in our cities… Shame on us all!

I respect all the genuine men of God, who have toiled in the land and God is rewarding their prices with glamour and glory… But, sir, God will silence the voices of many fathers we have today who are setting Babylonian standards for the coming generation of preachers… Their impacts will dwindle…Their names shall be forgotten… Their voices shall fade away like echo… Because they are raising a generation that will lead people to hell…

When I was working for Satan,I was not a joker!

Few that encountered me in the ‘streets’ knew that this one was the “champ”…

Why Satan is still missing our kind in hell today is not because we are going to become richer now than we were…

But because there is something he knows we still remember!

We will not blame you if you are just coming…

When you inbox us and call us names before your members from your pulpit, it tells us that you have not been around…

You just graduated from school and entered bible school and came out ,rented a hall, and started doing it the way everybody seem to be doing it now…

When we hear from you we know where you are coming from…

If you have been around, sir, you will not forget so easily what you saw during the days of our fathers… It is not this ministry of ulterior motives…

When terrorists catches a youth, in 2months time, that same youth might become a terrorist… He may have killed over hundred people before a year runs out… But when the church catches youths, we push them to the choir seats..and starts sowing different uniforms for them…and starts marking their attendance in church…

For one year to two years, they will be singing in the choir…

They have not told anybody about Jesus… They have not laid hands on one sick person… They have not delivered one person from demons… ..

But within a year, they have had more than 10 different choir uniforms…

They have sang and danced in more than 3 jamborees and praise nights we have hosted…

Their mates who joined terrorists networks have sponsored or killed hundred or thousands of people, but look at them, always puntual and regular in our church activities… Calling us daddy and mummy… It does not touch us that they are useless to the kingdom of God since they are useful to our church activities…

Some people give their heads in defence of Mohammed, a bloody prophet that was not there when heaven and earth was created…and therefore his preachers are raising boys and girls who have waged war on anyone who calls that name Jesus… In scores, in their profound foolishness, they die….

Where are all those that calls us father and mentor?…

Where are they in the fields where they are needed..

Sir, we cannot be useful to God and have useless children…

We only tell them to pay tithe and that is why they are obedient with it……

If we also tell them to invade nearby neighborhoods and dont come back until they have wrecked shrines and won souls for God, they will also obey… ” ,.but how can they go when no one is sending them?…”

Man of God, let us not be too sure yet that we are useful to God when we are parading useless spiritual children…

God said: ” Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;…for I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him…” (Genesis 18:18,19)

When we have spiritual fathers who are teaching us how to build church and not how to build men…They teach us how to preach and not hurt drug addicts and ritualists in our churches so that they will not stop coming… It was in this case that God is asking: “If you are a father, where is your honour”…

Father, teach me how to die to flesh and not how to bribe to be posted to churches…

Teach me how to lose all for Christ’s sake and not how to use ministry to gain everything…

I still want to make impact in my generation, father, teach me how to look at cobras and vipers sitting beside me every Sunday and tell them boldly, without fearing their withdrawal from church building commitment that… ” Also, the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into fire…”

I don’t want to use lies to keep members…

I don’t want to remove mesages of hell so that they will keep sowing seed …

John the Baptists looked at directors and captains of multi national industries and called them ‘brood of vipers’ and yet he was still running 3 times services… Who is lying to us that we will not have members when we preach the undiluted gospel?

Let’s stop celebrating all these big cathedrals where lies are breed , truth is being rearranged to suit the few and the gospel is being disgraced..

If they have grace let them preach about hell fire for 3months straight in their churches and let us see if they will have such numerical strength again… Let us preach against fornication and adultery …against fraud and corruption… And let’s see if their offerings will be as big as it used to be…If you carry grace, you will not need lies to amass followership…

Unfortunately we think they are among the voices God is raising among us, because they are in billboards and have finished cathedrals… The last time I checked, the voices God raised in their times, since the world began were never afraid to lose men…

Lot was such a man… Sodom and Gommoraah regrets till now for neglecting such a man..

Elijah came and was hated, but Israel obeyed him when God vindicated his sacrifice of tears…

When John the Baptist came, even Israel knew that such men does not come often in any generation, they abandoned convenient bishops who are keeping them to using their money to but house… They abandoned the church positions they were given so as to draw them close enough to be milking them non the name of spiritual civerage Israel abandoned men who have not waited for their time before they rented halls…

And because of the fear of failure, they have decided to water the message down, to attract and keep members…

Yes, they got tired of being pushed down every day yet they are down in life…

They got tired of hearing their phone numbers being called by prophets we are hosting…

They got tired of  being deceived by pastors whose belly is their god…

They trooped out to the wilderness, to hear John the Baptist, a man who has refused to lie to his generation…

I have been blessed with such men…

But Lord, may my generation never go bankrupt of men of such soul calibre,.. This is my prayer…If not we will be known as a generation that failed…

Sir, let us pay the price for that grace to look Into the eyes of presidents of nations and tell them: repent or perish and yet, next Sunday, they will still be the first people to come and be sweeping the church compound… We are getting there sir…That breed must rise up and take over …

Like, Elijah they are hiding somewhere paying costly price that will qualify their voices to be obeyed in the land…

Like John the Baptist, some of them are still in the wilderness… But soon, by their hands, the greatest revival that will hit this earth will be wrought…

Don’t think people are not getting tired of all these pranks and forgeries…

Don’t think they don’t know why we only invite baseless prophets who come to raise funds from us and drop our percentages for us and run away, leaving them the same way…

They are just waiting to see a man who will rise up against the tide…

In your city they are waiting to see a man who will look straight into their eyes and tell them to ‘consider their ways’…

In heaven right now, God is waiting for that breed…

Many of our fathers have failed us…

They have encouraged greed among the circles of young African prophets…

Which of their churches do you still hear testimonies of a people who were once sinners and God saved them…

They don’t allow their protocols to call the people up…because to them, such testimonies does not uplift others…

Instead let’s be hearing testimonies of miracle contracts, jobs, scholarships and marriages….

To this callous generation of preachers, those are testimonies worth celebrating…And you want me to believe that God is not raising a replacement army?…

Don’t pity us sir…

If we depend on your honorarium, it means God did not call us…

Am happy for your big cathedral, sir, but we must not preach in your church…

If I depend on your contacts and invitations, sir. Then it means that there is no ‘oil’ on this big head … “The Lord gave the word: great was the company of them that published “…

This is our backbone… And “Forever Oh Lord, your word is settled in heaven”

There is something we saw during the days of our fathers you people are not telling us…Your people have put our eyes on church politics…

No more  power…and no more souls…

No wonder we have succeeded in carrying your bags, so as to be posted to big churches but we are no more carrying the power of God…

Is that not why our members are patronizing false prophets in the land..

Because where there used to be power, we have replaced it with church politics…

I refuse to apologise to a generation of fathers that have watched their children mortgage the power of God…and yet cannot raise a voice, because false prophets in town pays them tithes and gives them of fat envelops..

My father was a pastor and before he died…

He never built cathedrals…His generation never owned acres … But they left legacies of truth and had spiritual sons and daughters, who till date…Yes… till date are making waves for God…

They stood up and condemned false teachings no matter who was preaching it… They preached about money..about cars…about hell and about heaven… And they raised children who invaded shrines and wrought the power of God…

Oh That generation balanced the scripture… Unfortunately, we are seeing fathers who are parading spiritual sons and daughters who everybody in town knows are using demonic powers to do ministry… But, yet they are not ready to warn them about the judgement that will follow as result of the destinies they are ruinning through their false and demonic altars…

Could that be why God said: “I will be their father and they shall be my children”…

Invade if this generation of fathers fail…

I have seen many fathers in my time, no doubt, who have raised voices and have stood to parent the coming generation… I love them and crave for more of God deposit in them…But, Lord, raise more of such fathers in our time! Especially now that nations and their leaders are tired… Their policies have failed them… They are looking for who to complain their confusions to…

Lord, raise men in my time that will go to government houses of nations when invited and tell the presidents and governors: “… If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel. Ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it”…

Lot would have done that if he was here now …

Elijah did it…

John the Baptist cried this same cry…

Paul, that ‘lunatic and fanatic’, sponsored from eternity never missed his opportunities…

Oh Lord, if we have found favour in thy sight, “grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word…”

I don’t want the coming generation to go to our gravesides when we would have finished and read about us that: THESE WERE THOSE MEN WHO LIED TO THEIR GENERATIONS…

THEY BUILT MIGHTY CATHEDRALS…

THEY WERE RUNNING 10 TIMES SERVICES…

BUT THEY LOST GOD BECAUSE THEY WERE AFRAID TO LOSE MEN…

Sir, this will not be said about us in the name of Jesus..Amen…

I love you from the depth of my heart…

Regards from fellow soldiers…

In the fields of Benin Republic.
