“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7
The All Progressives Congress, APC has noted with dismay the decision of the accidental care-taker governor of Rivers State, Barr. Nyesom Wike to mock God, the church of Christ and a noble man of God.
It is clear that the decision of Nyesom Wike and his motley gang of buccaneers to insist on holding a thanksgiving service at the Salvation Ministries, Port Harcourt was mainly to mock the man of God, the General Overseer of the Church, Pastor David Ibiyieomie who had, in the past, made it clear that no Ogboni man will ever rule Rivers State.
Knowing very well that no man of God will reject even the worst sinner from worshipping in his church – genuinely or just a make-believe as in this case – Nyesom Wike abandoned all his friendly pastors and their churches to insist on holding a thanksgiving service in Salvation Ministries led by a genuine man of God who is vocal in his opposition to evil people ruling Rivers State. The purpose for that action was, no doubt, to acquire saintly legitimacy for himself and his care-taker government.
The idea by the Wike team was to use one stone to kill several birds. Firstly, it was to make the man of God, Pastor David Ibiyeomie to appear to eat his words since he would deliver a sermon during the service. Secondly, was to woo the teeming membership of the church. Thirdly, was to mock God.
That action of Wike brings several questions to discerning minds. Does Nyesom Wike really believe that God can be deceived, bought or mocked? Does he think that Pastor David Ibiyeomie is in the league of those men of God whom he has been fraternizing with? How come Wike did not hold his thanks-giving service at any one of those churches where he had promised landed property and Certificate of Occupancy [C of O]?
Again, it is pertinent to remind Nyesom Wike that the good Lord has declared in Proverb 15:8 that, “The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.”
Barr. Nyesom Wike should know that he must first seek the forgiveness of God for the innocent blood of Nigerians he took away in course of his quest for power. Their blood will continue to cry to the Heavens for justice. And as long as that continues, he will never know peace, even as he pretended to smile on the podium on 29th May. The blood of the innocent will continue to trouble him both in his sleep or even while awake. Like in Shakespeare’s epic, Macbeth: "Glamis hath murder'd sleep, and therefore Cawdor shall sleep no more; Macbeth shall sleep no more."
The APC, Rivers State would like to advise Wike to continue to appease the god he knows for our God is beyond deceit by mortal man. Indeed the accidental care-taker governor should always remember that his days as governor will soon pass away like the falling of a leaf. He should first seek God’s repentance before attempting to set off sacrifice of burnt offering. It is only a matter of time for the prophetic statement of the respected man of God, Pastor David Ibiyeomie to manifest.
