The founder/President of Solid Rock Kingdom Church, Apostle John Okoriko has advised Nigerians not to attribute literal issues to Angels of God as every success or failure is caused by human factors.
Speaking at Headstone Tabernacle in Uyo on Sunday during the monthly interactive service on the theme ” Can An Angel Be Arrested By Man?” , Okoriko stated that no man can manipulate Angels as they are messengers of God for divine assignments.
Okoriko observed that Nigerians and Africans in particular always attribute their wrongdoings to spirits instead of owning up in any human situation.
He said the present economic crisis experienced in few weeks to general election is caused by greedy politicians who have devised means to custody the newly printed notes at the expense of the poor masses .
He debunked some beliefs in Africa that Angels can be detained by man for any errand adding that human beings were created to take charge of their affairs.
” The poverty that strikes Nigerians to the extent that the nation is classified as poverty headquarters of poverty in the world is because of lack of knowledge.
” What will help Nigeria to overcome poverty include staying away from company of poor people and self determination rather than waiting for automatic miracles”
He challenged Nigerians to unite during election and vote one of the presidential candidates that will change the narratives of the people through productive policies and not waiting to consume democratic dividends
Okoriko who does not believe in existence of Satan or witches and wizard explained that any evil that happens to man is caused by another man not Satan or witches and wizards.
Narrating his experiences, Okoriko disclosed that those who kidnapped him last year was close person not spirit , demon or Satan as people were speculating .
One of the gang members that abducted me last year was a close person he had assisted to live with him in his church premises.
” He stayed in the church premises and plotted my kidnap. I didn’t know until police investigated the matter. Nobody can manipulate Angels to do good or bad . They are strictly for God’s work without taking instructions from any man .
Okoriko who is an author of a book titled ” Every Satan Has A Human Face” said believe in Satan, demon and superstition has drawn Africa backwards in development and urged Nigerians and African continent to change their mindset
” Beware of close persons even those in Aso Rock who claimed to love Nigeria but backstab the nation by sabotaging the economy and bring untold hardship to the people not demons or satan.” he said
