Senior Pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry, Adewale Giwa says he must be killed first earlier than being given the COVID-19 vaccine.
The outspoken cleric mentioned those that want the vaccines can go forward and take it, however insisted that himself, members of his church, households and family members, wouldn’t be vaccinated.
“As for me, you’ll kill me than enable myself to be vaccinated,” he mentioned in an announcement to DAILY POST on Monday.
In keeping with Giwa, any pastor who encourages Christians to get vaccinated for COVID-19 is shortsighted.
“There’s a distinction between a non secular chief and a religious chief. You may have a Grasp’s diploma in Theology, and as effectively be a frontrunner within the church with out being led by the Holy Spirit,” he added.
“Anyone who’s biblically sound may also get up right this moment to grow to be a non secular chief acknowledged by a non secular physique or by the federal government.
“Nevertheless, religious management includes three principal elements: imaginative and prescient, hope and religion. A religious chief guidelines, guides and evokes others.
“To me, these asking their members to take Covid-19 vaccines are shortsighted non secular leaders who aren’t led by the Holy Spirit.
“Jesus Christ himself had mentioned within the e book of Matthew 7:22 that many would say that they had forged out demons in his title or prophesied, however He(The Lord) would say, ‘depart from me, you evil doers.’
“Let me let you know, not everybody who claims to be working for God would enter the dominion of God, except those that do the desire of God, based on Matthew 7:21.
“Our God is all-powerful, omniscient; He’s the Alpha and Omega. You don’t have extra energy than your creator. How will you neglect God for a vaccine?
“After being vaccinated, you continue to need to hold all guidelines regarding the illness and all that. Let me repeat once more that Nigeria wants Jesus Christ, not a vaccine.
“The title of the LORD is a robust tower; the righteous man runs into it and is protected. In case you are led by the Holy Spirit, you gained’t put your religion in a vaccine. It’s a disgrace to see any non secular chief promoting the product than the scientists.
“As for me, you’ll kill me than enable myself to be vaccinated. Those that want it could possibly take it, however as for me, members, households and family members, Jesus Christ is our energy.
“I’ll keep my place in doing what is correct by God until Jesus Christ comes. No one can discourage or frighten me. Now we have to hunt the reality and maintain on to it.”
