Nigerians have been shocked by the failed prophecies of certain men of God regarding the U.S presidential elections, wondering if they were inspired by God at all. Now, Enenche Enenche weighs in on the matter.

The Bible says go into the world and preach the gospel. The gospel is the good news and what Christ has done.
The Bible didn’t say we should go into the world and do politics. Sacred altars where the undiluted Word of God should be flowing from to feed and grow human spirits, have been reduced to political campaign pulpits.
We have dropped the Cross from the Gospel, and any gospel without the Cross is not a gospel, it may have religious coloration, but if it is not the gospel, it is not the gospel.
We have dropped the gospel and now spend more energy on the buildings that housed the church instead of concentrating on building the people that make up the church.
We have great and beautiful buildings, with shallow teachings and self appraisal doctrines that constantly keep us at the mercy of gullible adventures.
We believe the Men of God, more than the God of men. We take ‘prophecy’ seriously more than we take our Bible.
One thing that has been running through my mind for some time now is the extremism that we in Africa can take truth to and most times make a mess of it.
The God of Men is an ever loving God, He instructs us to come to Him “boldly unto the throne of grace to obtain mercy”.
The God of men is a loving God, we wants me to come to Him BOLDLY, why because of what Christ Has done.
The “Man of God” on the other hand wants me to come to him fidgeting, because he has the anointing to make and mar. I dare not offend him because he knows how to serve the meal of punishment… I wonder if love of Christ is part of their spirituality.
These days the God of man is truly in charge. He has a way of telling any man he is God. When a man is becoming unbecoming and humanity starts seeing him as demigod, the God of men has a way of placing him where he belongs.
Many “Prophets” said Goodluck Jonathan was going to win. Most of the atrocities recklessly committed to General M. Buhari, was as a result of prophecies that Goodluck was going to win.
A governorship candidate in Delta state was told by prophets he was going to win, he went home to sleep, when his fellow contestants were sharing money, he was bragging that he had won already… All thanks to the prophecy by the man of God.
Today, He is not the one in government house Asaba. The last time I saw him was when he was shouting on TV, “Jega you are bias…”.
I am not against prophets or prophecies, I know many and few I am close to. The Bible also recognizes the office of the prophet.
Building your life on prophecy is deadly. It has shipwrecked many marriages and destinies.
God’s Word is spirit and life, that is what your spirit man needs to survive and grown. Prophecy alone can’t sustain a man.
Living on prophecy alone, is like living in an air conditioned room for One year without food but still expect to survive. You won’t suffer heat, but you would suffer starvation.
Prophecy is an emergency intervention, being a prophet is a gift, it is like football gift, singing, writing gift etc. It doesn’t make you less human and more “God”.
When men cry out to “Man of God” for help and not the God of men who sent them, then I see someone filling his flesh with ego and pride… Nothing from the flesh realm is spiritual including ego!
God of men is forever God and no Man of God is forever. Build your life on the Word. Your body needs food to be alive, you who is a spirit in a body needs the Word of God to survive.
Prophecy is for edification, any prophecy that breeds fear more than faith is not from God, discard it. You are the number one prophet of your life.
Prophecy doesn’t mean it must happen, it is only showing you what may likely happen if you don’t pray.
ANYTHING GOD CAN DO, PRAYER CAN DO IT!
