The Church Blog: Toke Makinwa goes to Mountain of Fire – who would have thought?

Toke Makinwa

Sorry, we are not immune to the tight pulls of the culture, and neither should we to be honest – sebi light is supposed to shine in the darkness?

Reading through the new book from on-air personality, Toke Makinwa, a lot of things struck us – how personally she takes God, how important prayer happens to be to her and how she ascribes many of her live’s lessons to providence or destiny, or a lesson from heaven.

Littered across the book:

“I prayed”
“I cried”
“I asked God”
“I prayed”
“I fasted”,

We think it’s pretty remarkable from that standpoint.img-20161201-wa0031img-20161201-wa0032

What struck us even more than that, however, is how so opposite to the glitter of celebrity her choice of primary ministry is. In this case, the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM).

“Around this time, there was a seventy days prayer and fasting programme in my church,” she says on page 51 about how God revealed her husband had another son. “I joined in.”screenshot_2016-12-02-00-32-07

The 70-days fasting programme is one of the grand symbols of the MFM church. Not exactly the kind of place you would expect mainstream TV, Instagram-driven celebrity writing a tell-all about her life, marriage and sex to tell.

But it’s a a helpful reminder, whatever happens when the lights are on, many people understand how personal their faith is, how important that connection is, and they will go anywhere they must to find God how they must.

See you at Power Must Change Hands tomorrow, Toke!
