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…..an 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.

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome: faith or fake healer?

Afm PastorThe Healing Ministry of Pastor Chris http://www.christembassyhealingschool.org/new/abouths.phpis taking God’s healing presence to the nations and peoples of the world with numerous testimonies of miraculous healings and restorations from all over the world. I came across an article titled Pastor Chris: faith of fake healer? Interesting title don’t you think? Let me share this testimony with you:

A few years ago, I discovered a huge lump in my breast and I was shocked because I do regular checks and there was no trace of a lump before that fateful day. Having learnt the word of God on divine healing and divine health, I refused to fear and I immediately set the principles in motion – and I would lay my hands on my breast and talk the word. You know…”keep saying it, don’t stop talking it?” Well, I continued for the space of about two[2] years with no apparent results [I say apparent because I know I had set my faith in motion and it was already at work] until I attended this meeting with Pastor Chris and my story changed.

During the course of the meeting, Pastor Chris as usual started to minister to the sick, and then he did something that was not the usual – he called for a special group of people, special because I belonged in that group. He wanted to join his faith with ours if we had situations or challenges in our lives that our faith had so far not been able to change. I forgot about myself completely and was signaling a friend across the hall, I wanted him to grab this once in a life time opportunity; when he got up to go forward, then a light came on in my head and I remembered that I needed help too. I went forward and as Pastor laid his hands on me, I went under the power……when I got up, the lump had dematerialized. I called a doctor friend and she checked me thoroughly – it was gone. Honestly, I wept profusely and I could understand the feelings of the writer of Psalm126 that says “when the Lord turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream, then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, the LORD hath done great things for them. The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad”

Fake healer? I don’t think so…..what about you? God has given you a voice that must be heard so “Speak Out” let your voice be heard! Click on the button and post your comments.
