Pastor Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has revealed how himself and Senior Pastor and Normal Overseer, Omega Hearth Ministries Worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman influenced broadcaster, Ifedayo Olarinde, popularly referred to as Daddy Freeze, from attacking pastors.
Pastor Omokri made the assertion to right an unlucky improvement which noticed an previous video of Daddy Freeze, printed three years in the past, instantly trending on social media once more. Within the previous video clip erroneously mistaken for a brand new tirade, the OAP was heard berating Bishop David Oyedepo of Dwelling Religion Church over the latter’s touch upon marriage.
Nevertheless, many pastors, particularly the founder and Normal Overseer of Salvation Ministries, Pastor David Ibiyeomie had, whereas reacting to the video, berated Daddy Freeze, thereby sparking outrage, with many divided over assist for Freeze or Pastor Ibiyepmie.
However, Pastor Omokri, in a video, defined that after him and Apostle Suleman defined the scriptures extra precisely to Daddy Freeze in 2017 and 2018, the broadcaster stopped abusing pastors.
He stated though each he and Apostle Suleman have by no means met Daddy Freeze in particular person, that they took it as an obligation to clarify extra precisely to the OAP what the scriptures really says.
Whereas calling on Nigerians, particularly Males of God and critics to ignore the video and, as nicely, help in bringing “him into the way in which of God extra precisely,” Pastor Omokri additionally stated that he would attain out to Daddy Freeze to apologise to Bishop Oyedepo once more over the previous video.
Pastor Omokri stated thus: “With all of the circumstances surrounding Ifedayo Olarinde, also referred to as Daddy Freeze, a lot of individuals have raised some observations, they’ve talked about my friendship with him and Apostle Suleman’s friendship with him and it’s simply develop into crucial that I’ve to talk out now.
When the difficulty got here up with Bishop Oyedepo and the video of Pastor Ibiyeomie got here up, a lot of you’d have seen what I stated. I got here out strongly and boldly and I defended Bishop Oyedepo, though I’m acquainted to Daddy Freeze.
So far as I’m involved, Bishop Oyedepo is a real Man of God and that even when you don’t imagine he’s a Man of God, which it is best to, why not respect him for the issues he has achieved?
Take a look at the outstanding issues that he’s achieved. It’s very exhausting to assume that one would be capable of obtain this stuff with out the backing of God. So, I suggested him (Daddy Freeze) that if there’s any Man of God that I respect in Nigeria, if I’ve to call the Males of God, bishop Oyedepo will characteristic in that place. And I did counsel Pastor Ibiyeomie that, should you have a look at 1st Peter 21-23, it talks about how our Lord and Saviour, when he was insulted, He didn’t insult again. So, I simply gave that pleasant recommendation.
To most individuals who don’t perceive Apostle Suleman’s relationship with Daddy Freeze which I led to and my relationship with Daddy Freeze, this video is for you:
“I’ve by no means met Daddy Freeze in particular person and Apostle Suleiman as nicely has by no means met Daddy Freeze in particular person.
What occurred is that some occasions on the finish of 2017, Daddy Freeze had been inflicting a whole lot of controversies and I reached out to him, as a result of, should you learn Acts chapter 18 verse 26, you will note that there was a gentleman by identify Apollos and Apollos is a person who scriptures described as delicate in scripture however he had solely zeal, he didn’t have correct information.
So, after he spoke within the synagogue, Acts 18, 26, Priscilla and Aquila took him and defined the way in which of God extra precisely to him. And I felt to myself that Daddy Freeze is a broadcaster, he has a really giant platform and if I don’t try this with him, he’s able whereby he can lead lots of people astray inadvertently considering that he’s doing good and so, I attempted to be a restraining affect with him.
And, as soon as he spoke very harshly and flawed about Apostle Suleiman and Apostle Suleiman was going to reply and I known as Apostle Suleiman and stated, I do know the younger man, let me put you in touch with him so that you could advise and mood him, so I put them in touch. Apostle Suleiman has by no means met him in particular person, it’s solely by telephone.
Now, right here is the factor. I turned acquainted with him on the finish of 2017 and Apostle Suleiman with him in 2018. Since that point, the younger man has stopped attacking pastors. The younger man has stopped abusing pastors. The video that you just guys noticed the place he was saying all these uncouth phrases about Bishop Oyedepo, that was three years in the past; earlier than he met me and earlier than he met Apostle Suleman and earlier than we put him extra precisely in scriptures.
As a result of, there’s one factor about Apostle Suleman and I, we’re brothers and we have now rather a lot in widespread, one among which is that we research scriptures within the authentic languages; in Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew and so, we put him via and we informed him you may’t be doing this.
Don’t take my phrase for it, search via Daddy Freeze’s movies; you’ll see that from the top of December 2017 until now, he stopped abusing pastors! Sure, he talks about indicators however he stopped abusing pastors and that’s due to the affect that Apostle Suleiman, largely, and I’ve had on him.
Should you observed, for the previous one 12 months, I’ve been going around the world, touring biblical buildings, occurring pilgrimages, I devoted my life to try this and in addition to pursue the Leah Sharibu motion after which, we’ve been doing this, engaged on the younger man.
I’m going to ask him to apologise to Bishop Oyedepo; I’ve already informed him to take action and I’m going to ask him to take action once more however let’s not abandon this younger man, let’s not curse him. Carry him into the way in which of God extra precisely.”
