This Nonsense Must Stop: Apostle Suleman’s ‘Wonders Without Number’

Published

on

“You may not know it, but the world is at war. We’re in a spiritual battle, but we’re winning,” warns Apostle Johnson Suleman, famous televangelist and senior pastor at the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM), in one of his documented 2019 video sermons.

Further in that recorded teaching, Suleman notes that “if there’s any way the devil can get man’s eyes away from the Word, he will do it. He will cause trouble. He will make the circumstances around so challenging like in a storm. He will do anything he can to get man to concentrate on the realm of the physical senses and the situation around him instead of on the promise of God. But just like Israel had to rise up physically to take the land of Canaan, man must cause the devil’s defeat by rising up in the spirit if he is going to establish the dominion of God in the earth.”

For God’s servant who lives Godly and serves faithfully, declares Apostle Suleman who is fondly called ‘The Restoration Apostle’, persecution will happen. “Persecution may come in various different forms,” he affirms, adding that “servant of God will have many aggressive enemies; they will hate without reason. They will repay evil for good, they will betray and even try to keep man from success, but when we obey God and respond to our enemies with love, prayer, forgiveness and blessing, we take ourselves out of Satan’s line of fire and make room for God to handle justice as only He can.”

Apostle Suleman, therefore, cautions true men of God not to worry about enemies. He says “God has promised that He will handle them on our behalf. Regardless of what Satan brings our way, we must keep preaching the Word of God, and the Word will enable us to overcome,” while he warns against paying attention to cunning remarks. “Keep fighting the good fight of faith and remember that you are an overcomer in Him.”

Suleman, who is currently in Johannesburg, South Africa, for a two-day powerful healing and miracle conference tagged ‘Tornado 2022’ between the 10th and 11th of May, 2022, opines that a man on divine mission must not lose focus; adding that the devil will do everything he can to get at man; he will stir up things around man and he will push every button he can to draw man back from his mission.

“But don’t let go. Keep your eyes on the Word of God, a covenant is so much more than most people know or understand. For God has put us in charge of enforcing Satan’s defeat,” he proclaims.

Emir of Ilorin sent us to order you to disband -Muslim group storms Kwara Chrislam centre

Published

on

Members of an unidentified Muslim group recently stormed a worship centre that plays host to both Christian and Islamic services in the Alalubosa area of Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.

The group members who said they were acting on the instruction of the Emir Ilorin, Dr. Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, revealed that the worship centre was originally a mosque but has been housing worshippers outside the religion.

They were led by a man referred to as “Olojatuntun” who declared that such practice was an anomaly that would not be tolerated.

“We are here because of the report that the mosque in Alubosa, Ilorin where Christians, Muslims, and even traditionalists worship. We observe this practice which should not happen in this town,” the man declared in a video that surfaced on Facebook and sighted by our correspondent on Thursday.

In the video, worshippers at the centre including four men, some women, and children were seen listening as the leader of the delegation voiced his displeasure.

Olojatuntun added that henceforth, such practice will not be tolerated as it contravenes the rules laid down by the forefathers of Ilorin.

“We are not here to fight but what we want in the name of the Emir is that the practice must not happen again. It is not an advice; if they must hold Christian service there, they can, but not mix things up.

“We won’t allow anyone to destroy this town; to gather people and ask them to be practicing both religions. So tell them (the owners of the mosque) that we must not come back. Though they could claim they own the land, this is the town of the Emir,” he stated.

Another video was cited by our correspondent, where members of the group met with the owner of the worship centre referred to as Iya Meta Lokan. The meeting was seemingly called to sort out concerns raised by the group.

The middle-aged woman, dressed in a white gown and covered in a white scarf, said she is a devoted Muslim but started her ministry “using the ways of Christians.”

“When I was called by God, I was told to teach following the Christian way,” she revealed.

She continued,” I was told to preach to both Muslims and Christians. I have been on the mountain; when Muslims come, we pray likewise for Christians.”

She added that focusing only on Islam will be difficult as that will be against her “spiritual call.”

Recall that a Lagos-based lawyer and human rights activist, Malcolm Omirhobo, in 2023 sued the Emir of Ilorin for allegedly stopping traditional religious worshippers from holding their Isese festival in Ilorin, Kwara State.

In the suit filed before the Kwara State High Court, Omirhobo, who described himself as an Olokun worshipper, asked the court to declare that the alleged action of the Emir was an affront to the constitutional rights to “freedom of dignity of the human person, freedom of thought, conscience, and religion, freedom of expression, freedom of peaceful assembly.”

In July of that year, Theheute reported that a Muslim group, Majlisu Shabab li Ulamahu Society, went to the house of a traditional religion priestess to warn her against going ahead with her planned Isese festival in Ilorin.

Ramadan begins today, Sultan seeks prayers against insecurity, hardship

Published

on

The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar, has declared today (Monday) March 11, 2024, as the first day of the month of Ramadan.

The Sultan, who is the spiritual leader of Muslims in Nigeria, said the declaration was based on the sighting of the moon in almost every part of the country earlier on Sunday, “which is the 29th day of the Month of Shaban and thereby signifies tomorrow, 11th of March, as the first day of Ramadan 1445.”

“We got the information from Muslim leaders across the country and we accept the sighting of the moon accordingly,” the Sultan said.

He called on the entire Muslim community in the country to start fast today in accordance with the teachings of Islam

He urged Muslims to use this month of Ramadan to pray against the spread of insecurity in the country.

He called on all Muslims to use the month of Ramadan to pray for the leaders in discharging their duties with fear of God.

He further advised all Muslims in the country and beyond to observe the fast with ultimate fear of God, while urging the wealthy to assist the underprivileged with food during the Holy month.

Meanwhile, Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, on Sunday, congratulated the Muslim Ummah in the state and across the world on the commencement of the month of Ramadan 1445.

The governor, who described the holy month as a blessed month in which Allah rewards the worship of the Muslim Ummah, charged Muslims to increase their prayers for the country and the state.

Makinde, in a statement by Special Adviser on Media, Suleiman Olanrewaju, in Ibadan, called for increased prayers for the country amid the economic hardship facing the people, noting that though leaders have been doing everything to turn the situation around, prayers were of greater essence at this time.

“My administration has been doing everything possible to mitigate the effects of the economic hardship and it will not relent until life becomes better for all residents of the state.

“I felicitate my Muslim brothers and sisters on the occasion of the commencement of the month of Ramadan 1445. This is another opportunity offered to us by Allah to serve Him and seek His face and I will encourage all and sundry to make good use of the opportunity as always.

“I charge the Muslim Ummah to, as they have always done, pray for our dear state and Nigeria, as we have all come to realize that prayer remains the greatest key for believers to make things happen.

“We do know that our country is in a bit of economic hardship, but while we continue to look up to the leaders to do the needful, we must also support our hopes with prayers to God,” Makinde said.

Also, a former governorship aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, Dotun Babayemi, has urged the Muslim faithful to use the Ramadan month to pray for the country.

Babayemi made the call in a statement issued by his media office obtained in Osogbo on Sunday, calling on Nigerians to have a positive attitude about the country.
