  1. We living a world where pastors no more fear the lord, this tight money is supposed to be used in feeding and educating the poor, even the school they claim is only for the rich and not the masses

  2. They are ready for the last days! It is written, in the scriptures, that the Lord Jesus Christ Himself said that on the last day God would even send His elect a great delusion. So, watch out and study! For, they come with great power, so that they bring forth wonders, except all that are dead cannot make alive!
    As our Lord Jesus Christ can!
    They are wolves in sheep’s clothing, and they are not poor, But they have become rich themselves, and the Church of the poor money, and in addition engaged in tax evasion (this I have them actually got to know! And I can attest to some of the things that ultimately make them criminals, therefore, väärintekiöjtä!). But, all who are born again, and have the Holy Ghost, and as the Lord commanded to watch! * recent times / days! That’s our job! May God bless you with holy understanding and, let Him open your holy eyes, and your mind.
    So that you can distinguish between truths and wrongs. Ask for the Spirit of Truth! And pray unceasingly in the spirit. It’s time to step out of the beast’s comfort zone, which was, and is only for snow-strayers. Let us awaken in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and let us each prepare, as the Bible tells us, in Luke and in the letters of Paul. But above all Watch out for the time is bad. And study, making sure you have a healthy doctrine of the Bible. So that no one will convince you by any distorted manipulation. Amen, amen !!

  3. No doubt poultry farming is a very lucrative business and you did justice in your article, nice one

  4. Those who preach the gospel should follow Jesus example not the world’s example. You can’t live in a mansion when there are still so many homeless. I no longer give to TV ministries. It is best to give to your local church and ministries that help your community

  5. Wao ….four out of the ten richest pastors in the world are Nigerians. No wonder president olusegun Obasanjor once said that God is a Nigerian and He only visit other countries.

  6. If they are poor u people will still talk evil of them n castigate them and u will vow never to serve d kind God they are serving. So it’s better they are rich

  7. So interesting that the Son of God, he Lord Jesus Christ came here and gave up all the riches that He had with the Father to become the poorest of the poor then to give His life for us poor lost sinner that we might be forgiven and to be with Him forever and ever. And then you have these guys? Read the Bible believe It, become saved and follow the real Leader the Lord Jesus Christ.
