Evangelist Olumide Onanuga
Presiding Pastor of The Arise By Love Evangelism (ABLE), Evangelist Olumide Onanuga has questioned the continued decision of the Federal Government to place a ban on religious gatherings nationwide owing to its efforts to curb further spread of the dreaded coronavirus pandemic.
The renowned evangelist while recognizing efforts of the government so far at stemming the tide of the virus especially in Nigeria, however said the continued restrictions and enforcement of the lockdown order especially ban on church activities and other religious gatherings amounted to "an insult fencing God Out of The current Nationwide Challenge".
In his words, "TO BE CANDID, WE NEED TO BE RE-ADRESSED, SPEECH MUST BE RE-GIVEN, PRESENTATION MUST BE RE-PRESENTED AND AS A MATTER OF FACT, THIS SHOULD BE WITHOUT OUTLOOKING GOD'S HONOUR; A FATHER IN THE LAND SAID THIS A DAY AGO "IT'S AN INSULT TO FENCE GOD OUT OF THIS NATIONWIDE CHALLENGES"
In an article obtained by NEWS FLAKES NG, Evangelist Olumide also decried the continued silence of some prominent religious fathers across the country, as he accused them of failing in their duties to speak truth to power, maintaining that God cannot be sidelined in the current scheme of things should total victory against COVID-19 be so desired by all.

A CRY FOR GOD'S HONOUR IN A TIME LIKE THIS.(WHERE IS GOD'S HONOUR AMONG US?)
FATHERS IN FAITH, I SALUTE YOUR COURAGE IN OBSERVING GOD'S WORD FOR BEING CONSIDERATE WITH THE GOVERNMENT'S ORDER FROM THE START OF THIS PANDEMIC SEEN AS CHALLENGE, JUST AS WRITTEN IN (ROMANS 13:1-7) WHICH I AM NOT DISPUTING AS WELL BUT GOD'S HONOUR CAN'T BE OUTLOOK & REMAIN MUTED AS HIS SERVANT.
NOW, I REFUSE TO REMAIN MUTED AS A QUOTE SAYS "IF YOU KEEP SILENT, YOU DIE IN SILENCE".
IF SOME FATHERS HAVE DECIDED NOT TO TALK AS I BELIEVE MANY WOULD HAVE BEEN SPEAKING AS WELL BUT UNKNOWN OR SEEN BY US; HOWEVER, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SCRIPTURE (PSALM 8:2 & MATTHEW 21:16), I HUMBLY STAND TO CRY OUT THROUGH THIS MEDIUM NOW AS I THINK ITS RIGHT TIME TO DO AFTER WHICH OUR PRESIDENT "President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR" HAS ADDRESSED US AS A NATION DAYS AGO.
MY VOICING OUT IS ALL FOR GOD'S HONOUR AMONG US AS A NATION IN ALL OUR DECISION MAKING AT THIS TIME.
SUBMITTING TO AUTHORITY IS NOT A SIN BUT SUBMITTING TO THAT IN EXCLUSION AND REGARDLESS OF THE SUPREME AUTHORITY (WHICH IS THAT OF OUR ECUMENICAL GOD) MAKES IT ERRONEOUS.
GOD'S HONOUR CAN'T BE OUTLOOK AND REMAIN MUTED AS HIS SERVANTS, HE (GOD) ASKS FOR HIS HONOUR AMONG US AS A NATION (MALACHI 1:6)
OUR DEAR GOVERNMENT IN NIGERIA ; YOU HAVE TRIED ENOUGH FOR THE NEW ORDER ON EASING LOCKDOWN ON NOSE MASK USAGE, WASHING & SANITIZING OF HANDS & OTHERS HYGIENE ORDER FOR THIS PERIOD WHICH IS HIGHLY APPRECIATED BY ALL OF US IN NIGERIA BUT WHERE IS GOD'S HONOUR AMONG US AS A NATION?
TO BE CANDID, WE NEED TO BE RE-ADRESSED, SPEECH MUST BE RE-GIVEN, PRESENTATION MUST BE RE-PRESENTED AND AS A MATTER OF FACT, THIS SHOULD BE WITHOUT OUTLOOKING GOD'S HONOUR; A FATHER IN THE LAND SAID THIS A DAY AGO "IT'S AN INSULT TO FENCE GOD OUT OF THIS NATIONWIDE CHALLENGES"
RE-OPENING OF GOD'S HOUSES (CHURCHES) TO CALL ON GOD IN FELLOWSHIP OR COLLECTIVELY (HEB.10:25) FOR A TIME LIKE THIS TO PASS IS ALL WE ARE REQUESTING (PSALM 50:15, HOSEA 5:15).
I REMAIN WHOM I AM IN GOD& FOR HIM ONLY AS I AM ALSO PROUD TO BE A NIGERIAN.
THANKS AND GOD BLESS NIGERIA.
YOURS IN GOD'S SERVICE,
PRESIDING PASTOR OF
ARISE BY LOVE EVANGELISM (ABLE).
