The message by the PFN President Bishop Wale Oke reads:

The cross of Calvary where Jesus of Nazareth died was the Centrepoint of history.

That was where the only sacrifice that effectively addressed man’s sin problem was offered. That was where the cleansing blood of Christ, the only effective detergent for man’s sin-stained soul was shed. That was where God’s wrath against humanity’s sinfulness was effectively appeased. That was where God’s mercy for all mankind was released. That was where the wall that separated man from God was removed. That was where the gate of heaven was opened that anyone who believes in what Jesus Christ has done may enter into the glory of God. That is where your sins can be forgiven and your soul saved.

Without the cross of Calvary, there is no possibility of salvation for anyone on earth. You will be lost forever except you come to the foot of the cross and accept what Jesus Christ has done for you.

This is ridiculous, you may say. How can the death of someone on one funny tree, some two thousand years plus ago, affect my life today? That exactly is where the power of the cross of Christ lies, in its absurdity. It is in this foolishness of the cross that the awesome power of God to save man was demonstrated. God let His only begotten Son taste death for you. He took your place on the cross so that you will not die again. It was on the cross of Calvary that God’s great love for you was poured out. He gave up His only Son, who was sinless, to die for you because of your sin. Now that His Son has been judged for your sins – sins that He did not commit, but you did – you are now free, only if you believe. In every legal system, you never punish the same offence twice. Since Jesus bore your punishment on the cross, you can now receive God’s pardon and grace, and His free gift of eternal life, meant for all who believe.

All who have received the crucified Saviour into their hearts have experienced real forgiveness, total release from guilt and deep peace in their hearts and a completely transformed life. This is the testimony of countless millions since Christ died on that cross and rose again on the third day. It is still my testimony today. It can become your testimony too – only if you believe with all your heart.

Believe it today with your heart. Confess it today with your mouth: Jesus Christ died on the cross for me and took away all my sins.

Now I am a child of God. Alleluia.

For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:21 NLT).

“To the President: We call on the Federal Government of Nigeria to do more to secure the lives and properties of all Nigerians. We appreciate the sacrifices being made by the Police, the Armed and paramilitary forces to ensure the safety and security of all Nigerians.

We urge President Muhammadu Buhari to live up to his promise to guarantee the security of all Nigerians, irrespective of ethnicity or faith. We appeal to him to do more, as the Father of all, to rally Nigerians and ensure that the walls of divide that have polarized Nigerians are brought down.

“The National Assembly: The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) calls on the National Assembly to do more in addressing the issues of insecurity, unemployment, infrastructure deficit, the rot in education and health sectors, especially the issue of out-of-school children. We believe that the legislature can do much more to deliver better governance through the use of its oversight powers, rather than dissipating energy on diversionary bills that do not address the challenges holding Nigerians back.

“The Judiciary: The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) appeals to the Judiciary, at all levels, to continue to live up to the tenets of fairness, transparency, equity and justice in all that they do. We restate our position for a balance in terms of appointments into the Judiciary at the national level, so that there is representation across the different states, geo- political zones and religions, to ensure that justice is not only done, but seen to be done by everyone.

“The State Governors: The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) urges all the State Governors to do more in guaranteeing the security of their people and pay more attention to the needs and welfare of their citizens. We believe that there is a lot more that can be done at the State level, especially in areas such as Education, Health, where they have concurrent constitutional responsibilities.

“Violent Non-State Actors: The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) urges the different individuals and groups engaged in all forms of terrorist and violent activities to stop this wanton killing of Nigerians. We urge Boko Haram and other terrorist organizations to lay down their arms and table their grievances so that resolutions can be explored. We appeal to the Bandits, Herdsmen, Kidnappers and the different elements to desist from their criminal activities and give peace a chance.”

“The Church wishes all Nigerians a Happy Easter.”

Akuchay Responds to Trending News of Featuring “Naked” Dancer in Gospel Music Video

Published

on

Social media was inundated with posts of fast rising Nigerian-Canadian singer and songwriter, Akuchay, employing the services of a so-called scantily dressed dancer in her recently released music video for her hit single YOU ARE GOD.

Apparently, while others were enjoying the worship song and singing praises to God, an eagle-eyed individual was able to spot a ballet dancer in the sensational music video. He made his observation without mincing words by posting the comment, “But we are not to dance halfnaked” (sic).

​​This got people talking on post with them sharing their own views for or against the issue. While many didn’t see anything wrong with the outfit of the ballet dancer and it is the appropriate costume, a few saw it as something that could cause a stir and lead to lust among the brethren.

As fate and faith would have it, popular blogs and social media influencers like Instablog and Tunde Ednut also joined in saying a thing or two on the issue.

However, the artiste in the midst of the storm, Akuchay, has put out a statement via her social media pages (@iamakuchay), reacting to the (non-)issue. See her response below:

“My attention has been drawn to reports on social media about me featuring an half-naked dancer in my recent worship single titled YOU ARE GOD.

I’m glad that the video has gotten more supporters than accusers and I’m grateful to everyone that has said something positive about the song rather than looking for loopholes. Some people did not even watch the full video before condemning. It’s out on YouTube & Facebook and doing well on those platforms by God’s grace.

People like the accusers are the reason Christianity has and continues to be given a bad name. Always so judgemental, self-righteous and full of hate. When last did you study to understand the word of God? If you can’t control your lustful ways as a man/woman, even a fully clothed man/woman will still appear lustful to you.

“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.

In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness. Mathew 23:27-28

Learn to emulate the ways of Christ Jesus who came in human form to die for us sinners. I’m sure you will be quick to cast the first stone also when it also comes to gay/transgender people. Judge not lest ye be judged! Also take note of Mathew 7:3:5 ooh and definitely Mathew 21:32 because Jesus had you in mind when he spoke of this.

Finally beloved, before you sleep tonight, meditate upon Romans 2:1-3 and 1 John 4:8.

Watch the full video before you condemn.”

​​​​​We would like to hear from you. What’s your view about all this? Was the outfit of the ballet dancer unfit for a Gospel Music Video?
