Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo of Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC), has slammed Pastor Chris Oyakhilome for misleading people on the coronavirus pandemic by saying 5G network is an initiative to facilitate the antichrist agenda across the world.
Pastor Chris of Christ Embassy had stated that the pandemic was created in order to popularize the 5G network which is gradually gaining attention across the world.
According to the Pastor, the vaccine purportedly being developed to tackle coronavirus is actually a chip, requiring 5G to function, which will have access to humans’ information.
He added that these are part of the Antichrist’s plan for a new world order which includes; one world government, one world religion and one world economy. Pastor Chris backed his claim with Revelation Chapter 13.
However, during his online sermon, Pastor Ashimolowo, who did not mention Pastor Chris, said he is ashamed that some “men of God” are misleading people by linking the 5G network to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ashimolowo said people in his village, where there is no 5G, had died of the virus.
He pointed out that it was unfortunate that many people including pastors have joined in the fray of spreading falsehood without any scientific proof just to bring fear to the church.
“Too many theories, too many videos and fake news out there. There are too many theories out there, 5G and all that. Please, stay out of all those theories, keep your eyes on the lord. Do not be afraid, don’t think oh my God, this is the Antichrist,” he said.
He also urged Christians to avoid being deceived by some of their leaders who often associate any major technology breakthrough or shock in the world to the antichrist.
“Yeah, there may be things that are pointers to the last days. But not everything that happens around us should make us think that the Antichrist wants to take over out lives. Every time, there has been a major shock to the world, the church have often thought this must be the Antichrist,” he said.
“I’m not a scientist, I’m a pastor. But all these 5G theory, it’s not biblical, it’s not practical. There is a virus out there killing people, stay locked down. Don’t think it is some 5G that is killing. How come it got to my village where there is no 5G? A sickness is out there killing people and I’m very disappointed at pastors who have hastily shown graphs to show that there is a conspiracy theory to take over the world and put some chip in peoples’ bodies.
“We know the antichrist is going to play all those pranks and do all those things. This is not it! This is s pandemic! Jesus spoke about this in Mathew 24:8. This is a disease and doesn’t make any sense…carry the Dettol in your bathroom and you’ll find coronavirus written on it. There has been coronavirus before now it is just that this particular strand or strain, whatever they say in science, is mutated to become what we have today that we have no cure for and that is what we are looking for cure for.
“America will not destroy its economy to the tune of almost $20 trillion in order to put a chip in your body. And Britain will not destroy its economy to the tune of 2-3 trillion just to put a chip in your body.
“I’m ashamed and embarrassed by the pastors who are ill-informed, partly-informed, take videos patch it together and mislead the body of Christ. It has to stop.
“God will expose the antichrist when that time comes. But let’s not put people in fear. This thing is a disease killing people and we as believers will come out and testify,” he said.
Ashimolowo added that lockdown is biblical, urging his listeners to abide by it. He urged them to shun listening to ‘foolish theory’ but rather use the period to evangelise to people and populate the kingdom of God.
