“There is nothing like hell fire after life. Heaven is here on Earth already” – Pastor Dikeh

Posted on Updated on

Blessed Oguguamakwa Dikeh, the founder of “As The Lord Said, It Should Be Done Temple”, has emphatically told Christians to forget about the second coming of Jesus Christ known in the Bible as ‘rapture’, saying that it would never come to pass.

He also said that the New Testament is full of mistakes, adding that the original Bible of God is known as the ‘scull’.
The controversial cleric, who has a penchant for wearing red coloured fabric and adorning his place of worship with the colour, said in an Interview with Daily Independent:
“There is nothing like rapture. If you tell me that rapture means when a person dies, his soul goes back to God and his flesh to the dust, then I will agree, but anything other than that, I don’t agree. Don’t let anybody deceive you”.
He also argued that contrary to the popular Christian belief that when ‘sinners’ die they will be cast in to hell – a place that burns with fire and brimstone, Pastor Dikeh said there is no place as hell because in his view, it is represented here already on Earth in peoples’ sufferings.
“There is nothing like hell fire after life. Heaven is here on Earth already. When you are suffering, you are in hell fire. If you are in poverty and cannot pay your house rent then you are already in hell. But when you are in heaven, even if you reside in a flat, your landlord will come and beg you for money. He would even say don’t worry, I will give the other tenant quit notice for you”.
Speaking further, the preacher got even more controversial when he said he doesn’t pray with the name of Jesus but “in the name of God because my father, Adam, did not pray in Jesus’ name”.
“Jesus is a servant like me. He has finished his assignment and has gone. I am a servant too. When I finish my work, I will go. Jesus has done a good job, but I have problem with people who are giving him the honour that is not due him. If you say Jesus is the saviour of the whole world, who then is God?” he explained.
On the rumour that alcohol is offered to people attending his church for the first time, the cleric, who claimed to have foretold the recent Associated Airline plane crash in Lagos, said:
“I won’t say that I am not aware of that rumour, but it is not true. There is a story to it.
“A group of journalist came to interview me and I asked them what they would love to drink, I gave them what they ordered for including those who wanted beer”, he said.
According to him, one of the reporters was the brain behind the false story that alcohol is served in his church.
“It is unfortunate because I only offered them what they asked for. Is it a crime to entertain your guests? That is how the story came to be”, Pastor Dikeh explained.
