I’ve Never Been Admitted To Any Hospital Since I Was Born, Pastor Says At 47th Birthday
Senior pastor of Bible Base Miracle Assembly, Nkpor, Anambra State, Rev. Dr Jerry Nwachukwu, has said that he has never been admitted in any hospital over I’ll health or disease, since he was born.
Speaking last Friday, during a ceremony to mark his 47th birthday, at his church located at No. 19 Ezemdu Street, off Mercedes Avenue, Nkpor-Agu, he said that God has been there, providing and caring for him all the years.
“I am 47 years now. When I look back from my infancy to the present day, I find a lot of things to thank God for.
“I’ve never been admitted in any hospital since I was born. No matter how stressed up I am, God always strengthen me.
“All these years in the ministry, God has been there – providing, caring, leading and directing me,” he said.
He also disclosed that he celebrate his birthdays with widows, children, the poor and the needy. He said that he avoids celebrating birthdays with the rich, who will give him special gifts; but prefers to celebrate with the poor.
“I choose doing it this way because, the word of God says it is better to go to the house of mourning than to celebrate with the rich.
“Giving to the poor is a gateway to greatness. Whenever you give to the poor, you’re giving loan to God, who will also pay you in compound interest.
“In Psalm 41:1-3, the word of God says if you want pleasurable surprises from God, you must consider the poor.
“Nobody cares for the poor that God does not care for. The measure you give out determines the measure you get back. I do not have much; but the little I have, I do share it with others, so that my Father who sees in secret will reward me.”
He also ceased the opportunity to advise married couples to make their partners their best friends. He urged husbands and wives to know and understand each other inside out; so as to establish happy homes where children will be raised in the fear of God.
