Photos: Unmarried 72yr man and 60yr old woman who have been living together for 45 years finally wed today in PH

The 72 year old man and 60 year old woman who have been living together for more than 45 years without bride price and marriage were joined in Holy Matrimony today, Saturday, February 20 at Omega Power Ministries, Port Harcourt.


The church announced the good news on their Facebook page, adding that they bankrolled the weddings of other 140 couples who have been living together for many years without legal marriage. They provided money for the bride price, wedding gown for brides, suit, shirt and even ties for the grooms absolutely free of charge.



"Why did I decide to do this ?" the Pastor asked.
"Every day I get sleepless night because of the amount of people living together when God has not joined them. IT IS A SIN BEFORE GOD. Do you know that; one out of every five people you see in the street are living together without being legally married," he said.

"If Rapture happens now , they will all miss Rapture. So what is the solution ? Solution Number one: Couples must Live apart until you get money to WED. Which is very risky. Any of those women can be my sister or maybe she already has 5 children. The woman will suffer. And a strange woman may take advantage to come in. Solution number two: Legalise their union. But many don't have money to legalize it. They already have children, but no money to pay bride price. So that is why I decided to intervene, so when Rapture happens they shall not be found wanting. 
 

"What is a church building when the people inside the building have visa to go to Hell-fire. Salvation is better than beautiful church building.This is why I conducted marriage blessing for 140 couples @ OPM headquarters. By the grace of God, I gave them money to pay bride price which they have traveled and come back after paying. I bought wedding suits and gowns including shirts and tie for 140 couples. Paid for marriage certificate and paid for food, drinks that will be used for their reception. Now I can sleep well knowing that extra 140 souls have been added to the kingdom of God."

Broken Bondages at last...may it be permanent in JesusName and may God uplift this MOG for standing in the gap.
Pastors who know how broken and tattered even the spiritual lives of members are cos of such open secret lifestyles YET do nothing, God has started judging with this, right from "the house of God", hmmm.

I laugh in Chinese, can the pastor tell me how the prophet of old and disciples of Jesus themselves got married because the last time i checked the church was established by his followers after his ascension into heaven . Well any form of marriage even only parental consent ''engagement'' is accepted by God, marrying in the church is a modern day theory...

Jade said...

Now, This is one of the roles a church should play in its community. If the road leaders ur multimillion naira church is bad, fix it! If there are students in your midst that need help with school fees, help them out. If there sick people who can't afford treatment, help with the bills. It is not about the number of private jets or luxury homes your GO has that determines the wealth of a church, it is how this wealth is used to help others.

"Now I can sleep well knowing that extra 140 souls have been added to the kingdom of God." While the marriages are not a bad idea, I dare say that 140 souls cannot be added to the kingdom of God just because of the legality of their unions. So you've tackled one 'sin', what of the others? Do these couples now know Christ? How many married couples in that same church will make heaven? Tell me a story of a mass revival where hundreds were saved and living anew then I will be impressed. While promoting one facet of morality let us not lose touch with true spirituality. Some hypocrites especially in the church commit far worse attrocities than cohabiting. My 2 cents...

A million likes for your amazing reply. I scrolled through all the comments to see if any one would point this out.
Like you said, he did great, but that doesn't guarantee making heaven. The salvation of their souls is key!
