The Omega Fire Ministry Worldwide has warned its members from making further comments or statements on the alleged sexual relationship involving its overseer, Apostle Johnson Suleman, Premium Times reports.
In a statement issued by the Directorate of Media, the church said statements on the matter had overstayed their welcome, and members should no longer engage in discussions about it.
“It has become imperative that we advise all Omega Children and Christians Worldwide to put an end to the ongoing media war that we have engaged in.
“Every wise person would know that this is not a battle of humans but one between the Kingdom of God and that of darkness.
“Therefore, nobody is permitted further to issue a statement or comment on the matter. All Facebook Live Videos on the issue should also stop forthwith. It is advised that we spend our time concentrating on more relevant issues that bothers on the Kingdom.
“We are well aware were all these are coming from and we will deal with it spiritually.”
On Sunday during a service at the Church’s headquarters in Auchi, Edo, Suleman said the truth will be exposed in twenty-four hours.
In a video, the cleric told his congregation that he was not surprised about the allegations, as it was not a physical battle.
“And the truth is, the people who were busy actually spreading it were Christians, were pastors trying to discredit some of you that believe in this Grace.
“Please, when you get back, ask them ‘how far?’ And please mark those people, they are not your friends. If they are in your Facebook, or your this thing, tell them you are deleting them.
“Because even some unbelievers knew that this is a set up. Before now, nowhere, scan me on the internet you can’t see one stain. Because by then I didn’t say ‘stop killing Christians.’ The only time I said ‘stop’ was why they said ‘Ok, we will come.’ But the church will always win.
“I’m not going to say anything until Sunday. And if I’m saying anything at all it’s not because of the person involved, it’s because of Christians. Because they know that our weakness is because we are not united. And that my stand in January united Christians, that is what they want to scatter.
“All over the world Christians were crying out. So they said ‘these people are these united? Who spearheaded it? Him. Ok, let’s face him.’
“There are things when Christians here, I’m sorry to say that even some members of these our church were having double minds. Please mark those members. If they are in departments, remove them, because those are demons. You see me every day and somebody can tell you certain things?”
Suleman also thanked his wife, who had said the allegations against him were untrue when the news broke last week.
“As I speak to you now, I have not watched her video, where she said what she said, I’ve not read it. Am I correct honey?” He continued, turning to his wife.
“I refused. Everything about this, it’s Mama that’s been telling me, then some things some pastors will say ‘she said this.’ Reverend Fidelis called me one time and said this is on Sahara desert? Is it Sahara desert? I said don’t tell me, there are things I don’t want to get into my mind.
“Somebody tells you he wants a child, the next thing person gives you something to drink, to remove a child. They could have planned it well, the story is not,..they could have looked for a very good script writer.
“But my joy is, I will be alive to see the reward of the wicked. Please, the same way they were spreading it, when it’s uploaded spread it. Tell our media people let it go more than viral.”
Suleman insisted that he was under attack because he spoke against the killing of Christians in Southern Kaduna, stressing that he would not keep quiet.
“Let me beg you, if you’re a pastor, understand, you are not fighting a physical fight,” he said.
“The three fights of Joseph, one was from his brothers. Two was for his reputation, his garment was with Potiphar’s wife, how can you deny it? Three was from government, Potiphar put him in prison.
“Every minister must go through these three phases: the brethren will fight you, your reputation will be targeted, then government will come after you. I’ve passed through the three.”
