Seek God first, not fame, wealth – Madubuko
Ojo Peter, Ibadan
The general overseer, Revival Assembly Church, Lagos, Apostle Anslem Madubuko, has called on Nigerians to stop pursuing wealth and fame, rather than first seeking the glory of God.
Madubuko gave the advice on Thursday at the 2021 Acts of Apostle Conference organised by the Holy Ghost Royal House of Restoration Church in Ibadan.
He said that lots of Nigerians were fasting, purposely to become rich and famous, forgetting to seek God’s glory, as the only way to succeed in life, and hereafter.
Madubuko said it was time for Nigerians to go back to God, stop pursuing earthy materials and seek God’s intervention for things to work well in the country.
“Stop fasting to get money and fame, but for God’s glory; it is high time we moved closer to God.
“If you fast purposely for the glory of God, money, fame and other things will definitely come your way.
“Things are not working the way they should in Nigeria, because we have let prayer for earthly luxuries supersede everything we request from God.
“To get it right, we must go back to God to get His glory,” he said.
In his remarks, Supreme Archbishop Emmanuel Ojo Powerson, general overseer of the church, said that the conference was to discourage people from pursuing the earthy materials.
Powerson said that many people had neglected the way of God and started looking for miracles where they do not exit.
He said that many people made money rituals by killing innocent souls, purposely to become rich and famous.
He called on Nigerians to change their thinking and move closer to God.
He, also advised Nigeria leaders to do more in addressing the nation’s security challenges and be God fearing in whatever they do.
