Just how old is Pastor Chris Oyakhilome? As the author of the Nos 1 Blog on Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, I have been asked this question countless times….thus, the reason for this post.
Pastor Chris says he has been in ministry for over twenty years, and we know that he was actively involved with ministry from his youth – he organized crusades where the sick were healed and hundreds were saved as a teenager. So fill in your answer, just how old do you think Pastor Chris Oyakhilome is?
Well, now that you have set your mind to the task, I have a question for you – why is it so important to you how old a man of God is? What causes the blessings of God he carries to flow into your life, his age or the anointing he carries? It doesn’t really matter whether he is young or old, black or white, tall or short….all these physical attributes are not necessary for God to use a man. After all, he spoke through a donkey to correct the “madness” of a Prophet. When asked about his age in an exclusive interview with National Standard – a leading news magazine in Nigeria, he had this to say:
Q – How old is Pastor Chris? There is a mystery surrounding your age; no birthday greetings in the papers carry your age. Ans – Well, I would say I am a bit fascinated by the media creation of a mystery because none of us created it. I went to schools and so must have registered with my age declarations, I have a passport and my date of birth must be there. I have filled so many forms throughout this country. So for anybody to suggest that there is a mystery about my age seems mischievous. So I think I would rather leave it that way. Q – Will you like to solve the mystery for us? Ans – No, it seems mischievous and ridiculous, but maybe I have enjoyed the mystery created by the media over the issue and would just let it be.
So why not let the matter rest? Well just in case you are still not satisfied, I promise to ask Pastor Chris himself once I get the opportunity to get my very own Shouts Blog exclusive interview. But remember, the more important thing is the anointing of the Spirit of God and you will agree that whether or not we know how old he is exactly, we know that he is anointed of God.
