“When Elijah prayed and call down fire….it wasn’t God that answered that prayer, It was Satan” -Dr. Abel Damina
By our Reporter
The General Overseer and Senior Pastor of HolyGhost Ambassador Assembly, Uyo, Akwa Ibom state; Apstl. Nyeneime Andy has warned Dr. Abel Damina to desist from misleading indigenes of the state with what he described as “demonic teachings” or better still, leave the state.
Damina, who hails from Lere in Saminaka local government area of Kaduna state, is the General Overseer and Senior Pastor of Power City International, a church he founded in Akwa Ibom State with Headquarters located on Nwaniba Road, Uyo. Kaduna is in the northern region of Nigeria where Islam is the dominant religion.
Damina, a popular radio Pastor is also the presenter of ‘Righteousness Invasion Of Truth (RIOT)’, one of his religious Programmes on radio. Born on the 29th August, 1960, Abel Damina is also an author and entrepreneur.
In his recent teaching which has gone viral on the internet, Dr. Abel Damina was reportedly heard saying that it was rather Satan who answered the biblical Prophet Elijah and sent down fire, not God.
Reacting to the teaching which has been widely criticised, Apstl. Nyeneime Andy advised the ‘Global Baba’ to quit pastoral work, opining that he (Abel) had no more revelation. Akwa Ibom is predominantly a Christian State.
Apstl. Nyeneime in his release to ‘The Christian Community’ said “Satan did not send down fire but God did. This is the scripture: 1 Kings 18:22-39
Please read it carefully and thoroughly. But for the purpose of clarity let me pick two verses of this scripture”.
“Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.
1 kings 18:37-38. Please take note of vs.38,” The fire of the Lord fell“.
While accusing Dr. Abel Damina of glorifying Satan, Nyeneime continued: “Let me warn every pastor blaspheming the name of the Lord, insulting the Lord because of certain satanic revelations and giving honor and glory to satan. Let me warn you, if you don’t desist from this demonic teaching, you will have some of us to deal with. If you have no more revelations to bless the body of Christ, please resign.
“Leave pastoral work. You cannot continue deceiving people in my state. If you continue like this, we will have no other option than to ask you to leave our state and preach this heresy in your own state. Our people will not tolerate you deceiving them any further.
But if you refuse, then you will have yourself to blame. We have been quiet for too long and it is getting worse.
With due respect Sir. Thank you for returning to the you that we knew. You used to bless us with your messages but now we don’t understand what you are teaching. Thank you for understanding”
