-Head Of Church claims he is satan’s sibling
-Says he has seen Gods
-Gives Alligator Pepper and Kolanut to members as Communion
-Serves Alchohol During Service
An Alleged Church of Satan has been discovered in Oke-Aro Ifo Local Government Area of Ogun State.
The church which has a funny nomenclature, “As God said, It Must Be Done, The Temple of the Most High God,” was tagged a Church of Satan as it indulges in strange activities and honours villains like King Ahab, Nebuchadnezzar and Satan.
The activities of the church range from the sacrificial offering of animals to alcohol drinking while the “service”” is going on.
Another strange activity in the church is the offering of Animal sacrifice on the altar of the church which is covered in red and white colours. The Temple also has a slab which is at a very far corner behind a red gate where animals are killed and served to members of the temple. Male and female members of the temple also sit apart from each other.
The head of the church which is referred to as the ” seer “of the church, Blessed Dike-Oji-Ofo Chukwu preaches from the two altars where he claims to visit the “Most High” which the temple has. He is quoted as saying “I still communed with the Most High last month. I sit and discuss with Him often. I know his form. Who says we can’t see God?”.
Meanwhile, the church just celebrated its six anniversary. Another strange physical structure in the church is a spot where a skull is placed between two wooden cross-bones, maybe signifying danger, and a big calabash.
A member of the church added that services in the church are not timed and are ended only after the ‘Seer’ says its okay which usually amounts to hours of singing and dancing and the most salient part of collecting contributions which range from tithe of the most high to answered prayer offering to temple offering to Caesar’s offering to offering of the earth altar which she claimed is in accordance to Exodus 20:24.
The female member said, “When we come to the temple on Sundays, we are not in a hurry. We close when the seer says we will close, even until night, if that’s what he wants.”
In celebration of the 6th Anniversary the seer said, “In just six years of our moving to this place, the street has been named after us; the mosque and Celestial church that we met here have left for us; no member of this temple has died; I have been made the Mayegun of Fakile land… I prophesy to you, you will not fail, you will succeed, you will prosper; old and young will take the risk for you to succeed; big and small will swear an oath for you to rise up and shine. In the name of the ancient of the days, I bless every one of you… In your marriages, you will succeed in the name of the living God. ”
The Seer Continued, “The sun will not smote you by the day, neither will the moon smote you by the night; you will be protected. So shall it be in the name of the king of kings, in the name of the lord of hosts. In the name of the ‘God’ of “Nebuchadnezzar,” I bless thee. The ‘God’ of my ancestors, “Nebuchadnezzar” will change your story. As you have been serving “Nebuchadnezzar”, on this first day in the month of September 2017, “Nebuchadnezzar” is your ancestor and he will reward you; Pharaoh will reward you, Ahab will reward you. In the name of the living God, I bless thee.”
Still, during the anniversary, the seer asked members of the congregation to ask questions about certain activities and things they do not understand about the mood of worship in the temple.
He said, “You’re free to ask me any kind of question after the teaching this afternoon. We are not operating the way other men of God operate; we operate by the inspiration of the living God…Bishop and Pope are not recommended by God. Check from Genesis to Revelation, you can never see the title of Pope. If you check in the book of Titus, you will see a bishop is a man who is up and doing. All our deacon and deaconesses here, you are the same rank with a bishop, there is no special title in that name, bishop.”
He Spoke further, “They can deceive men, not somebody like me. Before I open the floor for questions, I want to appreciate one of my sons. I was in my palace when he called to say he had a gift for the temple. It was surprising what he brought; three cartons of big stout, one carton of ’33 Larger and one carton of Captain Black. We will soon share the drinks, but before then, come forward, my son, let me bless you.”
it was question time and a young man asked for why the name of Jesus was not used in the church. the seer answered, “God is the Saviour of the whole world, not Jesus. It is the gospel of John that claims Jesus died for the sins of man; but let me tell you, the New Testament is a lie. The original word of God is the Old Testament; the New Testament is the gospel of men, and untrue.”
The boy who asks the question was later rewarded with a scholarship for his show of intelligence.This brought joy to the congregation.
Another man asked a question on if the seer believed in Life after life. The Seer of the Temple had this to say, “Of course, there is life after life. Every time we say somebody died, what happened is that the person just changed address. Maybe the person closed his eyes (not died) in Oke-aro, he may wake up in Cotonou as a foreigner; or somebody else may sleep in Oke-aro and wake up in Ibadan. That is life after life, the continuation of life. That is why the Most High gave everyone 1,000 years to live in this life. When you’ve lived up to 1,000 years, you’d have completed your sojourn in this life, you will now become among the ancestors.”
Another female worshipper asked about the seer’s referral to Ahab, Pharaoh and Nebuchadnezzar as ancestors stating that other churches do not like to associate with the names. The seer opined forth.
“They lack knowledge. Nebuchadnezzar is my ancestor. Satan is my elder brother. See, that name Nebuchadnezzar is not a personality but a phenomenon. It means the wrath of God upon his children. But all those churches that pray against these names don’t understand. Is it possible to have the goodness of God and not have his wrath? That’s Nebuchadnezzar. My daughter, do you understand?”
The members of the church were later served the beer, while children were given soft drinks. The seer also revealed he used to give members of the congregation unleavened bread and fruit of the vine for communion until ‘God’ directed him to give them kolanut and blended alligator pepper instead.
Reacting to the allegations by people that the church is associated with the church of Satan, The International Church of Satan has denied any associations with the church. See the tweet handle below.
