Chris Oyakhilome finally speaks on divorce drama, wants us to pray for his wife!

After days of maintaining silence on the divorce suit filed against him by his wife, founder of Believers Love World Ministry, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has finally spoken.
Speaking on Sunday evening during the monthly global communion service of the church, the Pastor described the allegations levelled against him as crazy and stupid and urged his church members to pray for his estranged wife.

Although he appeared visibly disturbed during his first few minutes on stage, he confidently acknowledged that divorce is unbiblical but suggested he could consider the option should his wife insist on it.
I heard that some media houses especially in Nigeria are writing some things against me. All sorts of frivolous charges, thats crazy.
You have to understand something about a man of God. A man of God is not just someone who worships God or preaches God. A man of God is handpicked by God, set on course by God. If you study the scriptures, you will not find one man of God go against God, sinning against God.
The only things you might find will be a man of God, maybe in two different kinds of ways. Moses, for example; when he struck the rock twice, [he] was provoked by the anger of the people. [It was] not because he wanted to do something against the Lord. No man of God does something against the Lord.
Are you hearing me? A man of God is set on a course; there is a type of life that he is given. Then you have a young man, a young prophet; he wasnt named; he was deceived by another man of God and so he went in a direction that God said dont go.
That is the only kind of thing you find about a man of God when he misses the message of God or he acts beyond what God said. But a man of God settles himself in the fight against the world like those writing those stupid things about me, that I did this and I did that.
You dont know who a man of God is. I dont go in that direction. I wasnt accused of the things you said, nor did I commit those stupid things that you said and I dont need to go into that level in such discussions.
He recalled that Jesus passed through similar travails and eventually overcame. He said that although so many people were making mockery of him, he would remain steadfast and not lose focus.
Jesus Christ was accused by many a lot of frivolous charges. There will always be those who would like for it to be true. But you know, in spite of the accusations against Jesus, It didnt change who he was. It didnt change him.
There are preachers and there are men of God. I am not a preacher; I am a man of God and I go in the way Im asked to go. It may cause some troubles with individuals but thats not because I have done something wrong and when it comes to Reverend Anita, what I will say to you is pray for her.
Dont act like those people. If you are married to a man of God, it doesnt make you automatically mature. You can make mistakes; you can do something that is wrong. But some people expect the wife of a minister to definitely be at the level of that minister and so they may be looked upon and the expectation may be like that, but its a positional thing. If a man of God is married, it doesnt automatically mean that the wife of a man of God is therefore a woman of God. Thats not the way it is in the Bible. Thats why you dont really find the wives of men of God mentioned in the Bible. How many of them? Who was Peters wife, did you ever know her name? You never find that out. Who was Johns wife? Did you ever read the name? What about all the other Apostles? How many of their names are written in the Bible. You never find their names.
At this point, one of the female pastors sought to know why the names of wives of the men of God were not found in the Bible.
Oyakhilomes response was that she should ask God whenever she finds him.
Why? You ask God when you find him. Ask God when you find him, he exclaimed.
So, they are little things; dont try to make something big out of them. So when journeying, doing the things that God called us to do, Christians should not have a divorce; it shouldnt be but you see, that doesnt mean a Christian may not take the step.
They may do it but [they] have to make things right and we shouldnt take one another to court. But when it happens, not that we dont just want to go, it means someone is taking us there.
Thats a problem, but be wise and stay focused in the word of God and dont let those who want to feast on things like this, including Christians There are Christians who like things like this; they want to make something big out of this: Yeah, yeah, yeah, we said it. You said what? Judge nothing before the time. Be wise. Glory to God.
So we are not working in sin and living in sin and hoping that we can mix sin and righteousness together. We are the manifestation of his righteousness. We walk in that light only, and thats the way its gonna be.
In April, Anita Oyakhilome filed for divorce at Central Family Court, High Holborn, London, UK, citing her husbands unreasonable behaviour and inappropriate relationships with members of staff, a euphemism for adultery.
