A clergyman, Pastor Anosike has told his church members that their January salary is for him and not for the church.
The pastor claimed that he is not afraid of backlash and criticism, stressing that their first income belongs only to him
He said that if his followers consider him as their spiritual father, they should present him with their first income of the year.
He went on to say that such honour would bring them blessings.
In a viral video, the cleric made a claim to return the money if his members do not testify by the middle of the year after donating their January salary to him.
This month salary is your first fruit of the year, it is for me, not for church. I want to challenge you, by the spirit of God, I fear nobody and I fear no criticisms.
“If you call me your spiritual father, this month salary is your first fruit of the year, It is for me, not for church. It is for this altar, it is for this oracle, it is for this vessel, this one God has prepared.
“It is for my welfare, if you honor me with the first fruit of your first year, by the middle of this year, if you don’t testify, come back, I’ll give back to you.
“You will see wonders, covenant with my spirit, Paul said, though I be absent, but I am present in the spirit. I’ve judged you, I may not be visible to you, but I am watching in the realms.
This year I’m going to show you mysteries in the scriptures. The men who got used were men of realms and God is restoring the realms.
