G.S. Of Deeper Life Church, Pastor Kumuyi Reacts To Gunmen Attack

Pastor Kumuyi of the Deeper Life Bible Church Following the gunmen attack on Deeper Christian Bible Church in Okene, Kogi State, which left not less than 20 persons killed, the General Superintendent of the church, Pastor William Kumuyi, has expressed deep sadness and sorrow at the attack.

The worshipers were killed by gunmen who invaded the church with automatic rifles, firing at worshippers who were having an evening Bible Study Class.

Pastor Kumuyi described the attack as “not only wicked, but utterly premeditated.”

He said: “It is hard to reconcile that peace-loving people, sitting in their church, and listening to Bible Study were gunned down in cold blood by people they had done nothing to provoke.”

He urged the government to come to terms with the fact that a large number of people are being sent to their early graves, even as law enforcement agents seem unable to provide the required protection for all law-abiding citizens. All these, he said, have implications for the progress, development and well being of the nation.

He noted that these killings and destruction have been going on particularly in the northern part of the country for too long. Each time they occurred, he observed, the usual condemnations are made, but thereafter, the people are left without any assurance of their security and safety. No nation can continue this way, he added.

The pastor urged more prayers by Christians across the nation, adding that when Christians pray, the Almighty God answers.

He said: “If the body of Christians would rise up and pray, and the law enforcement agencies would intensify their efforts to combat this creeping instability, the killings and destruction in our country would be stemmed.”

“In times like these, when there is so much fear across the land, all Christians must see it as an opportunity to serve God more fervently.”

The pastor condoles with the families of all those who were killed in the attack, and prayed for the quick recovery of all those injured by the gunmen. He assured them that he will continue to pray for them.

Meanwhile, Canada and the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) also condemned the Monday night attack on worshipers at the Deeper Life Church.

    Do you think it is right to start praying for the devil to repent. I mean how can we imagine Satan coming to God and saying “forgive me”. That is just impossible! Are we still going to rely on our traditional “Pray for your enemies” or should I call it our trade mark? Though I don`t have a biological relation among the victims of the attack but as a member of the DLBC Family nay christian/human being with human feelings,I can`t tolerate this evil acts against the children of God. May God cause physical earthquake in the camp of the Boko Haram. The God that allow the earth to open up its mouth to swallow Koran, Dathan and Abiran alive may He repeat such to the Boko Haram adherents and advocates and make own fate worse. I mean their bodies will be buried in the ground while their heads will be left to the earth for people to trample on. May their strong men and strong houses be consumed by fire! May God afflict them with unknown troubles, may God bring upon them Jacobs troubles, may God turn down their sacrifice and may we from henceforth celebrate their own deaths!!! I don`t need to tell somebody to say Amen to this, cause I`m sure the soul of the dead are unanimously saying Amen. But if you feel their pain Please rain down Amen…….. somebody
