An Abuja based Christian cleric, Bishop Emmanuel Esezobor had denied recent speculations that a member of his church died while he was attempting to perform miracle on him after paying the man to act.
Bishop Esezobor, President, Fire House Church International, Nyanya-Abuja, told journalists that the devil must be using some people to spread lies against him because the ministry is waxing stronger than expectations.
“ We have not had a murder case in the Fire House Altar. And in all the branches we haven’t had a murder case for five years. We don’t know where they are getting their stories from, these are cheap talkers who are looking for popularity,” Bishop Esezobor said.
While further debunking the speculations, the Cleric noted that his Church has not held any crusade at the Abuja stadium recently, where according to the rumour, the man died.
According to him, the Church is just planning to hold a crusade for a healing service at the Stadium on February, 15th 2017
“When I read the fake and cooked story I started speaking in tongues because the devil is out to propagate God and celebrates Jesus.
We also heard how they said a trader whom they claimed I paid to act for me and in the process he died. Who then was the trader? Who are his relations? Which police station they took to? Which cell was I detained? All these are questions begging for an answer? the Cleric queried.
“Challenges have made me a champion and I see it as a stepping stones to greater things. Healing is real and I preach it, the Bible says “I shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.
“I have seen God do mighty things in righteousness and this is a big motivation coming at the end of the year making us more sensitive and prayerful. We know that the devil is after the body of Christ and I pray for all the pastors to go back to their prayer altar as we are over comers,” the Bishop said.
