The President of God’s Kingdom Society, GKS, the Church of the Living God, Brother Godwin Ifeacho, has warned that trusting in power and wealth leads to failure, noting that “all powers belong to God and only those who exercise power legitimately will prevail.”
Brother Ifeacho said this while speaking on Trust in Power and Wealth Rather than God is Vanity at the Last and Great Day of the just-concluded Christian Feast of Tabernacles held at the Church’s headquarters, Salem City, Warri, Delta State.
Ifeacho said: “Many people struggle for power because they believe it enables them to do what they want in life. They also want to live their lives in their own terms, to influence or outrightly control the behaviour of people.
“They feel they have the prerogative to make and break rules, violate norms without as much penalty as the powerless people are subjected to.
“But as many have found out, power and money, on their own, do not bring lasting happiness. Many of them are lonely and depressed and have even committed suicide. Only those who exercise power legitimately, in the fear of God, will prevail.”
Speaking earlier, GKS’ Vice President, Brother Felix Adedokun, said politics is not bad, but that Nigeria’s style is a democracy that does not deliver on promises.
Adedokun added that as the country prepares for the next general election, GKS’ message is that of peace and love.
The eight-day Christian Feast of Tabernacles, an annual event in the calendar of the GKS, featured several sermons, street processions, musical presentations by no fewer than 40 choral groups and choirs from across the country, and special assemblies for the aged, children and the women, led by Sister Helen Bazunu, Chairman of GKS Women Fellowship, Home and Abroad.
