*DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE POWERS OF ANGEL OBINIM*
It has come to our attention that a certain video is making rounds on various social media platforms, with audio versions being played on radio stations and online portals.
People are using the content of the said video and audio to castigate Bishop Dr Daniel Obinim, the general overseer and founder of International God’s Way Church. We see this act as an attempt to tarnish the hard won reputation of Bishop Dr. Daniel Obinim.
Those using the said video and audio raised two main issues:
1.that Bishop Dr. Daniel Obinim was going to rig the up coming elections
2. that Bishop Dr. Daniel Obinim can kill 5 billion people at his will.
This press release seeks to explain what was actually said by Bishop Dr. Daniel Obinim on the “Daye” program on OBTV.
*Bishop Dr. Daniel Obinim on the ‘Daye’ program on OBTV*
On Friday 21st October, 2016, Bishop Obinim sat on a program on OBTV called “Daye” to explain his angelic powers. In so doing, he said he loves all political parties in the country so none should approach him for help to win the up coming elections. He however said that if it is the *wish of God*, he can change the results of the elections to favour whoever God has ordained to lead the country. He admonished both NPP and NDC not to consult him concerning the upcoming election because he doesn’t want to be bias. He was sending a message to viewers on what God can do in the upcoming elections and also as an Angel of God, his influences in the upcoming general elections.
Should we not assume that if the Lord would have us pray for leaders, would He not also want us to use every opportunity to assist in electing the leaders that would be the best ones for promoting peace and righteousness? Yes, Jesus, himself said to “…Render unto Caesar the things that belongs to Caesar”
In 1 samuel 15: 23 The lord rejected Saul as king and then in 1 samuel 16 :1, He told samuel that He has chosen one of the sons of Jesse to be king.
This should tell you that God can influence the outcome of elections even if the voters think differently.
On the second issue bishop never said he can kill 5 billion people at his own will. He was explaining what an Angel did one night, when the Angel killed all the first borns of the Israelites. He said if God asked him to do same, he can and would kill a billion number of people because he is also an Angel of similar powers. Let me give you examples in the Bible of instances where angels were sent by God to kill;
2 chronicles 32:21 The lord sent an angel who annihilated all the fighting men and the leaders and officers in the camp of the Assyrian King. This was after king Hezekiah and Prophet Isaiah prayed to heaven.
Another place in the bible where an angel killed people is in 2kings 19: 35…the Angel killed 185,000 men in an Assyrian camp.
We are therefore astonished by the way his message has been misconstrued.
People have edited the video and the audio to suite their agenda. Taking a spiritual issue out of context is evil, trying to tarnish the image of a man of God for an agenda is machiavellian. We are using this opportunity to inform the general public to be becareful with how they react to issues of spiritual nature and with spiritual meanings
We also entreat sympathizers, supporters and church members to defend the gospel of God in any *Godly* way that they can.
