… Church is all about materialism these days
The General Overseer and Founder of Fountain of Treasures Assembly, Akute has called on Nigerians to trust in President Bola Tinubu’s Vision Analysis for the country and pray for God to grant him the enablement to actualize them in record time.
Apostle Peters made this call on Sunday 17th September while delivering a sermon titled “How to Handle Challenges of Life”. He asked his congregants and Nigerians to be encouraged by the programs of the government and hinge their faith in the Lord who is able to make Nigeria rise again.
He said, though a section of the country had formed a different opinion about Tinubu and his government out of mere sentiment, but they should purse for a moment and without bias take look at what plans he has for the nation, which is more important than mere sentiments of tribalism, nepotism, party affiliations and politicking.
Peters said he had prophesied some years back that the country will go through her worse patch in history but afterwards will bounce back and be celebrated amongst prosperous nations of the earth. He said indeed the country and her citizens has gone through a lot, however that we should remain steadfast and pray that this administration will take the nation to greater heights.
He further lamented the decline in love amongst Christians, noting that nowadays when you share your burden with brethren with trust and hope of solutions they will rather mock you with same situations.
He frawned that the church has so deviated from ideal Christianity enrished in love, to materialism and self-centeredness. He said gone are the days when brethren gather together to pray for one another.
He encouraged children of God not to take so much to heart even though the country is undergoing her worse times at the moment.
While dealing with challenges of life, he advised that Christians should endeavour to evaluate the challenges, take a cursory look at what they’re facing and take positive actions of faith in ameliorating them.
He also asked that in the face of adversity, you should remain positive in thoughts, and comfort themselves with the promises of God.
Rounding up his thoughts-provoking message, the tough-talking Man of God summarised with Hebrew 12:1-3 “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
