Prophet FT Samuel of Light of Life International Church (Lolic) has said it is sad nowadays people need materials rather than God in their lives.
The Man of God this in an interview last Wednesday before a midweek service at his church in Chemusa, Blantyre.
“People have made themselves lovers of money than God and they are fearing a fellow human being instead of God. People are going to a pastor asking for money, and not God. Others could come and ask a pastor to pray for them to get another spouse, as they are not happy with the one they are married to. This is not on. Read the Bible and meditate to understand the word of God,” said the prophet.
Said he: “We can receive anything but we have to seek God’s kingdom first as everything will be added to us.
“Abraham chose blessings and he received everything, including a child. Christians should be devoted to God. Eli mentored Samuel to hear God, but a lot of men of God are missing a lot as they want to people to hear them and not God. This has resulted in wandering of Christians in search of the truth,” Samuel explained.
He urged Christians to be prayerful, in seeking God’s righteous than ever before and church leaders to reprimand their faithful when they do the wrong things.
Samuel added that people pretend to be holy on church premises but their character shows their real behaviour.
“It is about the theme of the heart, focus on God not money. Confession is easy but we have to walk the talk in God. People interpret the bible to suit their evil thoughts, they add and remove, things which John in the Book of Revelation condemned,” said Samuel.
