Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams has said all those Christians who are pumping their financial resources into politics, ahead of the 2020 presidential and legislative elections so they can gain favours for themselves in the event that their “gambling” pays off, will be disappointed by God.
In his second service on Sunday, 4 November 2018, the founder of Action Chapel International (ACI) said: “Somebody said to me: ‘Papa, what do you perceive about 2020?’ And I said: ‘Not much’. But I’ll tell you one thing: ‘There’ll be surprises’ because there are all kinds of people putting their money and their confidence and their hope in political parties. And God will make sure that you are disappointed. Oh yea! He’ll make sure [you’re disappointed], for it is written: ‘Curse is any man who puts his confidence in the arm of flesh’.
“So, keep trusting in men, keep putting resources of the kingdom in political parties, hoping that when they come into office they’ll do this, they’ll give you that, they’ll expand your business for yourself to get more money.”
“They’ll show you Cayenne pepper”, he warned.
“We have become gamblers”, Archbishop Duncan-Williams observed, explaining: “Every four years, we gamble in this country and in other countries; we gamble, take all kinds of risks, putting all kinds of money out there for political favours.
“Instead of you doing the right thing, you want a shortcut and the shortcut will cut you short”, he warned, adding: “Because you finance and [have] given out all kinds of money, you have all kinds of expectations instead of working hard and doing what is required”.
“God will make sure you are disappointed. You better put your faith and confidence in God, for promotion comes from God”, he cautioned Christians.
