The General Overseer of The Lord”s Chosen
Charismatic Revival Movement, Pastor Lazarus
Muoka, has again, barred armed robbers,
prostitutes, cultists, women on trousers and kid
nappers from giving offerings, pledges and
paying tithes in the church.
This is even as the revival preacher urged
Nigerians to turn to God in repentance for divine
intervention that would lead to the revival of
economic and political fortunes of the country.
Preaching to hundreds of thousands of
worshippers that converged on the headquarters of the church at Ijesha, Lagos for the last lap of the
two-day crusade, Muoka harped that God is not
interested in ill-gotten wealth and riches but want
everybody to worship him in truth and in spirit.
Hear him: “If you are here and you are an armed
robber, a kidnapper, cultist, adulterer, among others and you don’t want to repent, please we
urge you not to give offering, tithe or pledge be
cause we are here to lead people to Christ and not
“The God who called us is always with us and we
know that God will supply all our needs including money to finance the church. We urge you to
repent from all evil and God will forgive you and
give you good business that conforms with the
word of God.
“We may not know you but God knows you and
will judge you if you go against his will.” Speaking on the topic, God has power to do all
things, Muoka said the Church would not fail to
fore-warn evildoers against giving ill-gotten
wealth to God who is the owner of all things.
He noted that the crusade, which coincided with
Easter celebration, was designed to produce a spiritual rebirth that would bring about
restoration, salvation and Holy Ghost baptism.
He furthered that “there shall be a fulfilment of
God’s good purposes in the life of participants
through which they shall experience a total
transformation as evident that God can do all things.”
The Imo state-born preacher stated that ”God
inspired the crusade to draw our attention to the
fact that our success does not lie on our ability but
on what God can do, for God alone can do this or
that vis-à-vis our supplications.” He noted that human problems exist because “we
do not recognize the fact that God has the ability to
turn-around our situation no matter how bad it
may seem to be. You limit God by seeking other
means but that is lack of knowledge. The truth is
that, God has the power to cause the barren to conceive, the lame to walk, the blind to see and
the captives to be freed
