The Enigmatic Pastor Chris

At first glance, I thought this was a good one, you know it sounded like “The Charismatic Pastor Chris” or “The Energetic Pastor Chris” but upon closer examination… enigma is someone that is puzzling, ambiguous, or inexplicable; other synonyms are mysterious, perplexing. It doesn’t sound at all like the Pastor Chris we all know does it? It immediately reminds me of our Lord Jesus Christ and the religious leaders of His day, read this account from John9 [KJV]and note the interesting parallels:

Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see. Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them. They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, he is a prophet. But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight. And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see? His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind: but by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself. These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue. Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.

Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes? He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples? Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples. We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is.

The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvelous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes. Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshiper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. If this man were not of God, he could do nothing. They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.

  1. Working in the healing school has given me a chance to prove first hand the reality of the miracles which has characterized the ministry of Pastor Chris. However, prior to my working here, i’ve been priviledged to experience the healing power of God that is at work through the ministry of Pastor Chris. In 2000, my little nephew got healed of a swollen scrotum which had caused him a lot of pain and that had refused medication. This healing took place while we were watching Atmosphere of Miracles with Pastor Chris on TV and as pastor stretched his hands and prayed for the viewers at home. How can you explain this? It could only have been a miracle and it could only have been from God. One thing i’d like to say here to those criticizing this man of God is to re-echo the words of the learned Jew, Gamaliel in Acts 5:38-39 “…And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: but if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God”.

    Pastor Chris Oyakhilome is a spirit that is why he is arguably the most influential and famous church personality in Nigeria today. The way we operate is different because we are not of this world we are from above according to God’s word. Undertaking a study of Pastor Chris is almost an improbable task for the wisdom of God passes all understanding which is why the gospel remains very difficult for the world’s wise men to comprehend. What makes Pastor Chris successful is his close walk with the Holy Spirit and the word of God that he studies and confesses into his life.
    ”all that you ever need in this life is wrapped up in the word, go for the word, keep saying it, don’t stop talking it”, these are catchy phrases etched in the montage of Pastor Chris’ teaching program on TV. This is the key to being influential, famous and filled with charisma; it happens as God’s word is multiplied in your life.

    Pastor Chris is as real as they come. I’ve personally experienced the anointing of God on his life. I’ve also witnessed it first hand flowing to the lives of others in miraculous ways, by the power of God.
