The pastor, Mike Bamiloye, urged men to stop abusing their wives.
In a post shared on his Instagram page this morning, Bamiloye said men who treat their wives badly are only doing themselves. He felt that the reason why some men have their prayers unanswered is because of their negative attitude towards their wives.
”MEN AND BROS, LISTEN TO ME…!
Men and Brothers, listen to me. When you mistreat your wife, … you do it yourself!
When you insult your wife, you are doing it yourself!
When you hurt your wife, you hurt yourself!
When you starve your wife to punish her, you are starving yourself!
Hear me, brothers and men,
Your prayers will not be able to reverse the situation when you are violent and inhumane and inconsiderate and loveless towards the woman of your youth.
She cries all night, you don’t care.
She’s terribly sick to the stomach, you don’t even look in her direction,
You leave it at home with three or four kids and go on business trips and personal vacations, sailing from coast to coast.
You only make a deposit at a Bank of Future Calamity.
And you, you make your withdrawals with full interest.
You can’t miss your rewards.
YOU DO IT YOURSELF!
Well done, applaud yourself for mistreating the woman you swore in the presence of God and witness to the Church to love and cherish, in sickness and in health, for better and for worse.
YOU MAKE YOURSELF.
IT IS YOUR SELF THAT YOU MAKE.
I Peter 3:7 says, if you keep doing all these things,
YOUR PRAYERS WILL BE HINDERED.
Your PRAYERS WILL NOT BE ANSWERED.
40 prayer points killing Goliath will not help you if you fail to honor your wife and love her.
So when you find things get so hard for you,
Or you find yourself suddenly demoted in Office,
Or your tracks suddenly become rough and cloudy.
And things get hard and unbearable for you,
And you start running from Pillars to Posts,
And start traveling from cities of prayer to mountains of prayer, and a false prophet tells you that there is a witch in your house who has turned your life upside down.
Don’t look far.
She’s the witch you created with your own hand.
The one you made in your mindless attitude factory.
It is the Word of God that plays on you:
YOUR PRAYERS ARE HINDERED by your negative attitudes towards your wife.
She is not a witch.
You are the magician!
I come in peace.
