Economic recession is sign of end time, says cleric
The First Elder of Seventh-day Adventist Church, Ogba, Lagos, Mr. Fred Omosebi, has called on Christians to prepare for the
second coming of Christ, noting that the present economic recession in the country and political instability across the world are signs of the end time.
Omosebi, who made the call at the grand finale of “Week Of Spiritual Emphasis” of the Babcock University Schools, Ogba, with the theme: “Unveiling The Secret Of Life,” said the situation of things across the world would not get better, adding, “It is in the midst of these difficult situations that Jesus will come. That is why I am stressing that Christians should not lose sight of the time we are in. They should not allow the crises to take them away from Christ.
“This is time for Christians to be consistent in their faith, because whatever God meets in their hands is what they’ll be judged with. They should be steadfast and spiritually minded, so they would not lose sight of Him, when He comes,” he said.
He said the issue of same sex marriage could be likened to that of Sodom and Gomorrah, the cities God destroyed because of sexual immorality.
The Principal of the school, Elder Gabriel Fashanu, explained that the week of spiritual emphasis is meant to expose students to spiritual development and to know that its only God that has control over life.
“It is part of holistic education of training them in academics and ways to live holy. We do this almost every term,” he said.
