Dr Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, the General Overseer, Mountain of Fire Miracles Ministries (MFM), has cautioned prophets using the pulpits to predict elections in the country to be careful.
The cleric gave the warning in his sermon on Sunday.
Recall during the build up of the 2023 presidential election, some self-acclaimed prophets started scheming electorates predicting who will emerge winner of the election.
Some during services in their churches predicted a candidate from party A will win the election while some countered the predictions of others with their own predictions.
According to the cleric, none of these predictions came to pass.
He added that some of the prophets went to the extent vowing to quit their prophetic calling to be a herbalist if a particular candidate they predicted did not win.
He said, “You see what happened in Nigeria during these last elections, disgraced the religion of Christianity very well. This prophet said this person would win, and this would not win,” Olukoya said.
“‘If this one wins, I will become a herbalist, if this one wins, let them cut off my hand, if this one wins this, this one will die before his wish.’
“All did not come to pass, and they call themselves prophets. Prophets of where? It is madness when you begin to say what God does not ask you to say. The pulpit in the house of God is the pillar and ground of truth. It is not for political campaigns,” he added.
