– Why I Am Yet To Become President – Pastor Chris Okotie Reveals
Senior pastor of the Household of God Church, Pastor Chris Okotie has revealed the reasons why he is yet to become president of Nigeria, and have tried 3 times, despite claiming to have heard the call from God to run for the post.
The clergyman in an interview explained that failing to win the election for three times does not contradict the prophecy that he would still lead the Nation.
Also, let’s recall that Okotie contested for the presidential post in 2003, 2007, and 2011 but lost all the elections.
Okotie also noted that God’s prophecies are futuristic and could take years to materialize.
“The thing about this is that it is difficult to communicate spiritual realities to a mind that is not renewed. The language of faith is totally different from that which we have in ordinary parlance,” he said.
“When God speaks to you, he doesn’t speak futuristically, he speaks in the present. God always says I have made you. He told Abraham ‘I have made you the father of nations’ when he didn’t even have a child. So, sometimes when we communicate spiritual information, people misunderstand. Because faith is beyond that which is cognitive.
“So, when I make a statement and when people think ‘Oh, well he didn’t win an election’, they think that it is immediate,” Pastor Chris explains why he is yet to become president.
Pastor Chris Okotie also made references to the story of Abraham in the Bible, where God promised him he would be father of many nations but yet the prophecy took time before it came to pass.
“When the Lord sent Moses to Pharaoh, it took several times of going to Pharaoh before Pharaoh capitulated. When the Lord says he’s going to do something, he says it now but it takes time. It took time for Abraham to beget Isaac. So, we need to understand that it took time for the prophecy concerning the rainfall to take place when Noah started telling the people it was going to rain. It took 100 years before it began to rain and the people thought he was crazy. So, many times when we talk about faith, the unbeliever or infidel who doesn’t understand spiritual things runs into a place of confusion.
“But I can assure you that that which has been spoken will definitely come to pass. What I am doing right now is patriotic. I’m trying to evoke nationalistic sentiments at a time when Nigerians need to come together in a cohesive atmosphere where there is love, understanding, and unity. And we have that nationalistic brotherhood that could help us overcome the situation that we face today.”
