  1. I think mentioning Celestial here is on call for, why not just say a fake prophet… Bible says that by their fruit, you shall know them. The came out of us but they are not part of us, for if the belong to us, they would not had been found with this evil act. I think is more professional for you guys to remove CELESTIAL name on this post. Thank you. And for the Guy, He needs to repent, and may God forgive HIM. Cos His actions is evil.

  2. I still wonder how women can be so gullible to go for a “prayer session” with a so called man of God in a hotel of all places! what happened to the church?. Ladies should just wise up and stop being fooled by this perverts who parade themselves as prophets.
