Sept 9, 2014 – Pastor Chris Oyakhilome Preaches Divorce, Anita, Says Pastor’s Wives Not Recognized In The Bible

“Pastor’s Wives Not Mentioned In The Bible”- Chris Oyakhilome Blasts Anita & Media

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome has finally broken his silence over a divorce case instituted against him by his wife, Rev Anita.

During the global communion service of Christ Embassy on Sunday evening, the man of God said the allegations leveled against him is crazy and stupid. He then urged his followers to pray for Rev Anita.

Though he appeared a bit upset during his 1st few minutes on the pulpit, he later admitted that divorce is not biblical and said he has no option since his wife has insisted on it.

Read excerpts from his sermon below:

“I heard that some media houses – especially in Nigeria – are writing some things against me. All sorts of frivolous charges, that’s crazy.
You have to understand something about a man of God. A man of God is not just someone who worships God or preaches God. A man of God is handpicked by God, set on course by God. If you study the scriptures, you will not find one man of God go against God, sinning against God.

The only things you might find will be a man of God, maybe in two different kinds of ways. Moses, for example; when he struck the rock twice, [he] was provoked by the anger of the people. [It was] not because he wanted to do something against the Lord. No man of God does something against the Lord.

“Are you hearing me? A man of God is set on a course; there is a type of life that he is given. Then you have a young man, a young prophet; he wasn’t named; he was deceived by another man of God and so he went in a direction that God said ‘don’t go’.

“That is the only kind of thing you find about a man of God when he misses the message of God or he acts beyond what God said. But a man of God settles himself in the fight against the world… like those writing those stupid things about me, that I did this and I did that.

“You don’t know who a man of God is. I don’t go in that direction. I wasn’t accused of the things you said, nor did I commit those stupid things that you said and I don’t need to go into that level in such discussions.

He recalled that Jesus passed through similar travails and eventually overcame. He said that although so many people were making mockery of him, he would remain steadfast and not lose focus.

Jesus Christ was accused by many – a lot of frivolous charges. There will always be those who would like for it to be true. But you know, in spite of the accusations against Jesus, It didn’t change who he was. It didn’t change him.

“There are preachers and there are men of God. I am not a preacher; I am a man of God and I go in the way I’m asked to go. It may cause some troubles with individuals but that’s not because I have done something wrong and when it comes to Reverend Anita, what I will say to you is ‘pray for her’.

“Don’t act like those people. If you are married to a man of God, it doesn’t make you automatically mature. You can make mistakes; you can do something that is wrong. But some people expect the wife of a minister to definitely be at the level of that minister and so they may be looked upon and the expectation may be like that, but it’s a positional thing. “If a man of God is married, it doesn’t automatically mean that the wife of a man of God is therefore a woman of God. That’s not the way it is in the Bible. That’s why you don’t really find the wives of men of God mentioned in the Bible. How many of them? Who was Peter’s wife, did you ever know her name? You never find that out. Who was John’s wife? Did you ever read the name? What about all the other Apostles? How many of their names are written in the Bible. You never find their names.”

At this point, one of the female pastors sought to know why the names of wives of the men of God were not found in the Bible.

Oyakhilome’s response was that she should ask God whenever she finds him.

‘“Why? You ask God when you find him. Ask God when you find him,” he exclaimed.

“So, they are little things; don’t try to make something big out of them. So when journeying, doing the things that God called us to do, Christians should not have a divorce; it shouldn’t be but you see, that doesn’t mean a Christian may not take the step.

“They may do it but [they] have to make things right and we shouldn’t take one another to court. But when it happens, not that we don’t just want to go, it means someone is taking us there.

That’s a problem, but be wise and stay focused in the word of God and don’t let those who want to feast on things like this, including Christians… “There are Christians who like things like this; they want to make something big out of this: ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, we said it’. You said what? Judge nothing before the time. Be wise. Glory to God.

“So we are not working in sin and living in sin and hoping that we can mix sin and righteousness together. We are the manifestation of his righteousness. We walk in that light only, and that’s the way it’s gonna be.”

In April Pastor Chris’ wife, Anita filed for divorce over unreasonable behaviour and inappropriate relationships with female staff members, a euphemism for adultery.

His response has brought a bit of relieve to many church members urgently waiting for him to speak.

    Why is it difficult for Men of God, to get it right in terms of Marriage. See why Paul make emphasis on women should keep quite in the Church. Pastor Anita, think about Deborah, Jezebel, Esther, and Dorcas Ministry. Pastor Chris, i pray for you, your end shall be greater than the beginning,.

    Mr Naijagists Media, this great Man of God didn’t blast anybody ooooooooo, don’t try to paint what he said with your own words. This man of God from what I understood is he(pastor Chris) are in peace pastor anita. Instead of using his wife name to make trouble, he said pray for her that’s all… So what’s so harsh about what he said? Where is the blasting? The problem with this country is we are just to fast in looking for a way to tarnish our God sent pastors.. This same issue happened with pastor lazarus of lords chosen charismatic revival mission but he is still standing after all the lies about him, same with pastor kumuyi and his son, same with tb joshua etc but the truth is great men of God will continue to make progress no matter how hard the devil uses people to persecute them. Pastor Anita is very fine and good with her husband… Read your bible well, what pastor chris said was right, who opened the door for peter when he was released by the Holy Spirit from prison? It was rhoda that did not the wife of peter…. So of a truth, there is no place mentioned in the bible that was stated mrs peter or mrs john…. People should be wise because of their own life and don’t talk or look for stuff that will bring a man of God down…

      @ Victor,Please could u tell the world ur own version of bible and what edition it is,perhaps yours is different from other people’s bible….a word of advice for you though, lets stop worshiping and idolizing pastors in this country …pour or invest that energy on God himself.

      Jesus that some of us have read about was so humble in his days and full of miracles, so says the scriptures..please how do you define this type of religious crusade that is being propagated nowadays ..with pastors having jets,mansions
      ,Jerri -curls,guns,bodyguards ..even marrying wives and divorcing them…na wa oo!!”Diariz is God o”!

      …continue worshiping your pastor and not God!

    It’s a shame this matter has come to this. This goes to show we are all mere mortals- that are not beyond misadventure or mistakes.

    The mistake most of make is that we worship our pastors and NOT God….for all the true Christians out there be encouraged to read the bible and understand the religion you claim to be practicing.

    Pastors read the word of God from the bible so can you, if you take the time to read and understand it. This is not to in anyway undermining the work of genuine pastors.
    I find the comments above from the pastor, leaning towards that of a “male -chauvinist” .The way the comments described women as not “important” is really sad.
    Women are so important in our lives. In fact they are our mothers, as a man, I’m knowledgeable enough to know the world cannot survive without women -for example you cannot produce children without women. If not for our mothers, you and I would not be here today.

    Even Jesus had a mother (Mary) according to the scriptures.
    Why then do we have to use the scriptures in the bible to defend our mistakes and iniquities?
    Please note I’m not in any way judging anyone here-who are my to judge people? .Let’s leave judgment to God and on the last day, when we all give account of our lives to God.

      Twisting to bible to justify his weakness. He is full of pride. arrogant, selfish, unrepentant, does not even show what love his…i bet stupid people who worship pastors rather will be brainwashed and will not see that what he is doing is absolutely wrong. if he is a man of God as he claims, this should not have come to this at all, he would have recognised that his wife was angry with him amd him home needs serious attention. But because of pride, he will not bring himself to sort things out. he should back home and sort things out wth his wife not spread his dirty clothes outside. why menstion the Apostles in the bible, who told him they were married?. half baked pastors he is. Lots of money is running both of them crazy. this is the beginning of the end.

    Pastor Christian Oyakhilome is disgusting very unchristianly and most uncharitable in his speech. It is now convenient for him to say wives of pastors or women are not called by making references to Moses,Jesus,Peter et al.When he was deceitfully begging Pastor Anita to go on a mission to UK and to see to the expansion of the to Europe,did he not realised that she was not `called`? Pst.Chris has just demonstrated that he is not only a guy with twisted mind,but also half clever.Pst.Anita raised two weighty issues which he did not respond to,firstly why did he abandoned his wife and their daughters in UK for over 16years, without unfulfilling his roles as husband and daddy? Secondly, what is he doing with those satanically sexy and seductive so-called female staff in his matrimonial home? Not until he comes clean and confess to his wife,daughters,family and the church of his inappropriate relationship aka adultery and his failures as a father,he is only fooling himself.Pst.Chris should learn from Bill Clinton,Jim Bakker, Jimmy Swaggart,Tim Haggard etc. The only person that need pray most from the church now is definitely Pst. Chris and not Pst. Anita.May God in his mercies deliver Pst.Chris from his spiritually twisted mind and from the strangle-hold of the daughters of Jezebel and Delilah in his matrimonial home who daily massaging him sexually.

    pastor chris you knows very well that there is no place in the bible a wive’s of pastors are mentioned now you go ahead and give your own wife anita reverend pastor and you yourself are then answering pastor, that means your wife anita is above you; in short you are the cause of this problem no matter an alligation. you give your wive right to ride on you what do you complain again. now everybody has known her and give her respect more than you what do you expect. she suppose to be under you but due the name you honour her. you can slapper or embarrass her as wife so learn your mistake ok

    Pastor Chris, ur attempt 2giv women their place suggests 2me dat u could b guilty as accused. U shd admit dat separation has dealt a blow 2 ur matrimony, &u aint even doing ur part 2c dat it is ammended. Maybe d demigod dat ur members take u as is of mor value 2u dan d father & huzbnd dat ur family sees u 2b, odawise u wdnt hav tried 2 distract us wit dis botched-up, about-the-bush sophistry frm a warped ideology. Yes, u’r tryn 2 evade d real question,& dat’s not helpn anythn.

    Pay close attention, perhaps u would finally c dat path dat God is calln u 2 take out of dis whole mess.

    Moreover, d Jesus, Peter &d rest dat Pastor Chris drew in2dis shameful picture did nt marry. Or did his own bible say dat they did? Beliv me, if Jesus or Paul had taken up a woman as wife, she would hav bn mentiond 2d point of ubiquity in d bible. Bt d thing is dat a wife would hav dragd bak their ministries. So Y would Pastor Chris drag diz men in2 dis except 2 complic8 issues?

    Leave judgement to God,some of us have been waiting to hear what he has to say ,so they can judge issue in their own way ,we all are suppose to be praying for them,
    But I think he has done his part also trying to express his mind or situation of things with him at the moment which most of us knows that is A difficult time,
    God is able to do all things,peace will surely reign.

    well, divorce is biblical on grounds of adultery.
    adultery apart from a married person defiling the sanctity of matrimony, in the the new testament is friendship with the world JAMES 4:4 , we dont actually know what transpired between those two but if it got to the stage where a pastor says okay lets break up, LEAVE IT BE. if he (pastor Chris) says she needs prayers then YES pray for her (IT IS NO DISRESPECT TO SAY A PERSON SHOULD BE PRAYED FOR). if you feel lime throwing insults and accusations that are BASELESS, PLEASE for the love of GOD, and to avoid JUDGEMEMT, HOLD UR PEACE. (touch not MY anointed and do MY prophet no harm) IMAGINE HOW PASTOR CHRIS FEELS OR WOUKD FEEL AT PPL SAYING HE IS GAY. king David obeyed this is not laying a hand on Saul,and GOD blessed him.
