The Port Harcourt based clergyman pastor David Ibiyeomie, said only a magician will ask Christians to pray with coconut, and other items
“If I see where they asked anyone to bring coconut in the Bible, I will drop my Bible,” Ibiyeomie said while preaching on Sunday
In his church auditorium. He said;
“Prophets are not elected by men. You know you do election for politicians,” he said.”Prophets are separated by God from their mother’s womb. It says, ‘Before you were born, I ordained you a prophets unto nations’.
“If it is human election, many people will not think of me, they will say, ‘Forget that guy, how can that one too be a prophet?’
“You don’t select them, they come by the election of God. Prophets are not handpicked. It is not like in a ministry where you will just say, ‘I am a prophet.’ Not all these ones that will just stand up and claim to be prophets.
“Somebody telling you problems is not a prophet, listen. I don’t understand how you will understand today.
“Somebody telling you your problem is not a prophet. A prophet is when you tell him your problem, he speaks God’s counsels and it is turned. Not somebody that will say go and bring candle, bring incense, bring water, bring coconut bring egg. That is a magician.
“You don’t need coconut in the New Testament. If you see coconut in the Bible, I will drop my Bible. If you see coconut in this Bible, I will not preach again till tomorrow. Those are not prophets, please don’t be deceived with nonsense.
“Did you see broom here? That is not a prophet. You mistake magicians for prophets. A prophet is the mouthpiece of God who speaks God’s counsels. They speak God’s counsel to cancel evil.”
