OAP Freeze put up one of his usual posts questioning the rational behind mega churches in a country that can barely provide basic amenities and this is what a Chinese lady had to say about it.
Chinese lady commented on my post about why Africa is so underdeveloped.
Nigeria has gone to China to start making church noise there! Why not Afghanistan, Syria or North Korea? If China had built churches instead of Factories, would we still want to go there to make ‘church’ noise? Little wonder why we are where we are today, sitting so deep in recession, with the financial forecast for 2017 looking bleak and blurry!
South Korea got her independence in 1957, only 3years before Nigeria, and is a Buddhist Nation, yet the Hyundai factory is among the top 10 biggest factories in the entire world, despite being constantly under threat of attack from North Korea, they have grown immensely.
Nigeria, on the other hand, according to reports, has the largest Church auditorium in the world, belonging to Redeemed, and located somewhere in Ogun state.
Let’s learn from Jacob’s story in the bible;
Matthew 22:32 KJV
I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
Jacob was blessed by default because Abraham was his grandfather, he even went on to steal Esau’s blessing from their father Isaac, yet despite all these blessings, while he was still alive, God revealed himself to a pagan pharaoh who worshiped the ‘sun god’ in a dream.
Despite Jacob’s huge blessings, his children and their children went on to become slaves in Egypt. Listen Nigeria if you do not develop your blessings you will become SLAVES to those who do. That is why God’s promise to Christians, that we will lend and never borrow, is not manifesting, despite the multitude of Churches, with as many as one on every street, we have become the ‘king’ of borrowers and are even borrowing from Buddhist, Hindu and Muslim nations.
CHINA, GERMANY AND SOUTH KOREA DID NOT BECOME ECONOMIC GIANTS BY HAVING 2 REDEEMED BRANCHES ON THE SAME STREET, THEY BUILT FACTORIES NOT CHURCH AUDITORIUMS!
Prayer and Church and looking for miracles and blessings would not help us get out of recession, let’s build Nigeria and make her great again, then God will crown our efforts with glory, in JESUS name, AMEN!
