Popular Nigerian television evangelist and general Overseer of Salvation Ministries, Pastor David Ibiyeomie has told his congregation during “Love For the Miraculous” at August Week of Spiritual Empowerment, how he gave an offering of one million dollars in the church without anyone knowing.
The pastor made the disclosure while narrating an encounter he had with an American preacher who is multi millionaire in dollars. According to him putting God’s things above anything other things is very necessary in Christian life.
“When you say I love God, it means I put God’s things first.” Pastor David said.
He said despite being rich in dollars, the American preacher never give one million dollars as offerings in his entere life.
Hear him. “I was talking to a man of God, an American preacher. He said David, you tried o, do you know I have never given a million dollar before in my life and this preacher is a multimillionaire in dollars.”
In contrary, Pastor David said one does not need to be super rich before showing love to God. He revealed that the time he gave the offering, he does not own a house of his own and no body even his wife doesn’t know.
” When I gave one million dollars as offering, I had no house. I gave it on a Sunday, my wife was not even aware until she heard my testimony.”
He revealed that it was only the accountant of the church that got to know about the offering.
“It was only the Church accountant that knew as a privilege of his office when he saw he volume of money that came in. He said wow! I told him to keep quiet, I didn’t do it for you but for God.”
