Sexual intercourse with your wife won’t reduce your spiritual power, Prophet Hezekiah to Ministers

Prophet Hezekiah O. Oladeji

 


In this interview with Apostolic Church Magazine , the General Evangelist of Christ Apostolic Church, Worldwide, Prophet Hezekiah O. Oladeji speaks on many interesting issues. EXCERPT !

 

It has been three years since your appointment was announced as the General Evangelist of CAC Worldwide. I want you to look back at the journey so far; have you found it easy and what are the challenges you have faced?

 

I want to give God the glory for the journey since the last three years and I want to appreciate the authority of the church from the President, Pastor Abraham O. Akinosun, General Superintendent, Pastor Samuel O. Oladele, the church management, General Executive Council, all Regional Superintendents, Pastors, Prophets and Evangelists. I also want to appreciate all Regional Evangelists and Evangelistic Team of CAC Worldwide for their cooperation with me and I pray we shall all inherit the Kingdom of God.

What I believe is that challenge in the journey of life brings power. Irrespective of the challenge or problem one encounter in life, one will be more powerful after overcoming it. There is no way one can live a challenge free life, but since Christ reigns, challenge would result in power.

 

Can you specifically tell us the challenge you have faced since the last three years?

 

The challenges I faced have turned out to be miracle and power for me. If someone fell into a pit and was able to get out of it and he eventually filled the pit, that challenge has turned to power.

 

 Can you explain this further?

You are too inquisitive, that answer is enough for you.

 

You have organized so many crusades both in Nigeria and outside the country since the last three years. Can you tell us where you are getting your energy or strength from?

It is God Himself who put a person in a position that grants the grace to do the work. We are not the one doing the work, but the God of our fathers. We have no wisdom or knowledge of our own. The God who backed the founding fathers of this church is still backing us. Despite COVID-19, we have been able to hold many programmes online, even programmes that I ought to physically attend abroad. We are hopeful that there would be outpouring of the power of the Holy Spirit after COVID-19.  

 

 

We learnt that you gathered some Prophets to pray against COVID-19 on some of our mountains. How successful is this move?

We thank God that it was successful. It was God that ordered us to select seven people each to go to Prayer Mountains established by the founding fathers of this church and we took the step. We are so sure that the prayers were answered. God asked us to pray for Christ Apostolic Church and against COVID-19. We thank God that since then the ravaging disease has been going down and we are so sure that by the power in the name of Jesus the disease will die.

 

 

The Federal Government banned religious institutions from operating when COVID-19 started but we discovered that COVID-19 cases in Nigeria has been reducing since the church has been allowed to operate. Will you say that it is the prayers of the people of God that made this possible?

It is God who did it. There is no battle one cannot conquer when God is leading. There is no wisdom that can make one overcome a battle without the leading of God. When God is leading, foolishness will turn to wisdom.

 

Despite COVID-19 and lockdown of the church by the Federal Government, you were not locked down. People always see you ministering online almost on daily basis. What is the source of this strength?

As an Evangelist, one of the responsibilities God has committed into our hand is that we should not allow people fall into the hands of the devil. We must not allow people to slumber or sleep, because the enemy we are fighting against does not sleep. The devil never rests for a minute.

During the lockdown period I was at Ikeji-Arakeji, I saw a woman who was agonizing in prayers at the mountain with her family. Immediately I saw her God told me that the woman had been nailed with three nails on the head because of an incident that happened when she was 14-year-old. The Spirit of God told me that what she did was thatshe stole something, but another person was falsely accused for her offense. The accused person suffered for her offence and her coven decided to retaliate by punishing the actual offender.That was the beginning of her problem. The woman confessed that truly she stole the thing. After her confession, we prayed for her and within one minute God delivered her. It was as if when a pregnant woman wants to give birth, the woman began to labour until she gave birth to a stone. Had it been we allow ourselves to be locked down by sleeping, that kind of miracle will never happen. God used the lockdown to do many signs and wonders in the lives of people.

 

 

It has been observed that some ministers of God, particularly Prophets, usually abandon their wives for months without having sexual intercourse with them. They believe that sexual intercourse with a person's wife reduces the power of God. Is this true?

To God be the glory. Our founding fathers in this church, including those who are Prophets, had wives. One of the mistakes people make is that before they were called into the ministry by God,  their wives didn’t have salvation. If our wives are not saved and God has called us into the ministry, why can’t we start our ministerial work from our homes by preaching to our wives to have salvation? I know of a particular man whose wife is the head of a witchcraft group.  When God called him into the ministry he ministered to his wife and she gave her life to Christ and the demonic spirit from her father’s house departed from her. The woman later became a strong pillar for the ministry of her husband.

What if we fail to have sexual intercourse with our wives and some evil spirits are having affairs with them in the spirit realm? What we need is to be deep in the power of God. I know of a particular woman who always complains to her husband that he is destroying her power after they had sex.  She told her husband not to sleep with her again because he is hindering her from going to witchcraft meetings. To the glory of God, the woman later gave her life to Christ.

If we prophets are avoiding having sexual intercourse with our wives, it is because we are spiritually weak, not because we are holy or we are spirit filled. We need to be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. Before any Christian chooses a life partner, you must have it in mind that you can become minister of God in the future.So, you must be careful. It won’t be proper for your wife not to be fit enough or compatible for your ministry.  Every minister of God must know God very well, without that one will be constantly condemning his wife.

Sex is biblical. It is a gift from God and everyone who is in the ministry must know that if your wife is feeling like having sexual intercourse with you and you are into fasting and prayer, your fasting and prayer cannot be acceptable if you refuse to give what she needs to her. You need to firstly settle with your wife. Marriage is more powerful and important than your ministry. Without marriage no one can be called into the ministry. If you were not born you can’t have any calling or ministry. You were born through someone that was why you have a call into the ministry. Elijah and Elisha, just like everyone, were born.

As Prophets or Evangelists we need to have time for our family. Irrespective of my busy schedule, I always have time for my family. I always try to be 100 percent perfect. I am a husband to the core to my wife and father to the core to my children. You can ask my wife and my children. My wife and children come first before anything, after then all other things. How can you be calling on God when you have not settled with your wife? If Jesus and His father (God) are not united, would you be able to call on Him (Jesus)? You call on God through Jesus Christ and He answers you because there is unity of the God head. The battles that God is conquering for you, were you the one who fought those battles by your own power? If there is no unity in your home, you won’t have spiritual energy to call on God to fight your battle. Let’s read Psalm 44 verses 3 to 5:“For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadstfavour unto them.Thou art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.Through thee will we push down our enemies: through thy name will we tread them under that rise up against us.”

If we are not in a cordial relationship with God, who will help us to conquer our enemies? He is the God who has power to crush all our enemies.
