The General Overseer, CAC Miracle City, aka, Healing Centre, Prophet Victor Olaniyi Oladapo narrated how a Yahoo Boy brought a huge sum of money to the church for him to pray for him sometime ago.
“On that fateful day, I was praying in the church when a boy entered with a huge sum of money which I neither counted nor touched to ascertain the exact amount.
“The boy said he brought this money for me to pray for him because he learned that I am a very powerful man of God and the heavens must answer any prayers I say.”.
“I then told him that I would neither collect nor touch his money. And I asked the boy the nature of prayers he needed. He said he would just like me to pray for me.
“Ha! I then inquired about the nature of his job. And the boy replied, “I am into a popular job in town. I further requested to know the name of the new job in town. He said it was an online business, that is ‘ yahoo business’. He told me he took to it because he couldn’t find a job , and to avoid starving to death.
I objected to praying for him. And I warned that he would die very soon if he did not desist from engagingin the fraudulent busines. He left my presence in anger.
The man of God narrated last Sunday during service while ministering on a topic titled: Death! What Should Happen To You Before You Die?
Prophet Oladapo cited the following bible passages: Luke 16: 22-23 , John 3:17-18, Luke 16:19-20, Luke 42, Mathew 3:8-
The man of God said whatever type of work one is doing that one cannot be proud of is not a good job. In addition, he said whatever type of work one is doing and one is always afraid of death is not a good job.
He noted that even if many things on earth could still be contested as to whether they are certain or not, ” death cannot be contested because death is inevitable. Whether you believe it or not, death is an inevitable end.
“The rich and the poor will die. Needless to say, the most powerful people on Earth will pass away. Witches , wizards, herbalists pastors and prophets will ultimately die.
“But before we die there are major things that must happen to us before we die. There are 7 things that must happen to us before we die” he stated.
The man of God explained that one of the 7 things that must happen to us before we die is we must live to fulfill God’s purpose for us. And the purposes are of different types: we must realize that God did not create us to satisfy our selfish interests on earth but to fulfill the lives others.
“We must believe in Jesus Christ and accept him as our Lord and Savior; we must not serve or have any other God beside God, and we must believe that Jesus Christ is coming back. We must be ready to sacrifice if Jesus Christ died for me and you.
“We must live to ensure that we live a life that benefits others. Let us try to help others, lift others up, and make others happy. We must know God before we die. We must accept Christ into our lives and make him the author and finisher of our faith, just as it is written in the holy Bible.
“We must live a holy and exemplary life of Christ, we must preach the gospel of Christ always, we must love our fellow brethren, just as Jesus loved us and died for our sins. We must use our talents for God.
We must be honest at work, or when it comes to business, not that we buy something for N5 naira and then sell it for 15 naira and keep telling people , “God is my witness, I didn’t overcharge you, that N15 was the exact amount I bought the item.
“We must contribute and have our hands in God’s work, we must live a fruitful life that bears positive fruits that people can see. We must live to be identified with Christ; we must not be afraid or be ashamed to identify with Christ, we must be seen as Christians, and avoidiving questionable lifestyles that do not befit pastors, ministers of God, the church’s choiristers and children of God.
A good Christian must live a life that glorifies God.”We must not be afraid of death, because we know that if we die here on earth we shall reign with Christ in heaven. So let us live as if death could come today. We should be sure that if we die today, we have lived a fulfilled life that God is happy with.
“I therefore urge us to repent and forsake our sins and follow Christ and never turn back”. The man of God added.
