The president of Omega Fire Ministries worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has frowned at the increasing rate of prostitution among women. The servant of God, on the pulpit, spoke against the immoral act as the 2017 edition of ‘The Ebenezer’ crusade entered its second day on Thursday, 9th of February, 2017.
During the programme to commemorate the ministry’s 13th anniversary, the Oracle of God condemned families, mothers and ladies who encourage the spread of prostitution especially those that travel abroad to sell their bodies.
In his lesson, Suleman warned that, “Being a prostitute is forbidden by God. Prostitution involves an exchange of money for sex between a man and a woman who have no legal, moral or emotional attachment to each other. Why should Christians engage in such activity? Fortunately, as with any matter of importance, God guides us to a right perspective through His written word. The Bible teaches that sex is a good gift from God to every bride and groom, to be unwrapped on the honeymoon and enjoyed throughout the marriage. The scripture highly approves of sexual intimacy between a man and a woman for the purposes of pleasure, love and procreation, provided they have committed themselves to one another in the covenant of marriage.
Now, when we appreciate what the Bible approves concerning sex, we can anticipate what it disapproves. The Bible condemns prostitution. If scripture teaches that the only right context for sexual intimacy is marriage, then we can deduce that prostitution is wrong because it involves sexual intimacy outside that right context. The Bible does not just suggest that prostitution is wrong, it openly condemns the practice (Leviticus 19:29).”
Meanwhile, as the prophet of God was blessing people and invoking the power of healing and restoration on many that were plagued by various afflictions; the lame, the deaf and dumb, the blind, and more, the case of a 48 hours old baby who lost his mother after he was delivered had thrown congregants into emotional shock and confusion. The story of the 2-day old baby had moved Apostle Suleman and he immediately offered to assume full responsibility for the baby’s upkeep until he comes of age. The family members who brought the baby to the crusade ground narrated in tears how his mother had died right after his birth.
With the clarity of spiritual hindsight, the Oracle of God announced to the congregation that the baby was the next target of the evil attack after his mother; therefore, he was going to adopt him.
After praying for the child and family, he made a promise to open a bank account with the sum of N1, 000,000 (one million naira) for his upbringing.
