Pastor Tunde Bakare’s Sermon during Sunday Church Service: UP, UP Jesus; down, down Jonathan!

Pastor Tunde Bakare
Fiery Pastor Tunde Bakare, who was last week declared wanted by the State Investigation Bureau over a sermon proclaiming President Jonathan as determined to bankrupt Nigeria, today hit even harder in his latest sermon.

Mr. Bakare, who heads the Latter Rain Assembly, began on a musical note, imploring the congregation to join him in singing a popular Pentecostal retreat song that inserted “Jonathan” into the lyrics.

“Let us carry Jesus up and throw Jonathan away. Up, up Jesus; down, down Jonathan,” the pastor proclaimed, warming into his sermon this Sunday.

Wanted by the SIB over a recent sermon, Pastor Bakare told his congregation that the letter inviting him to attest to the rippling sermon he gave last week arrived while he was

away in Ukraine. He said he had defied the advice of many who counseled that he should not return when he was being sought by the government’s security department.

“I received lots of calls and I was advised not to come to Nigeria until Monday, but I have nothing [to hide],” Mr. Bakare announced, narrating his experience of last week.

The pastor also reacted to the news of a N25 billion lawsuit reportedly filed against him by a firm owned by oil magnate Femi Otedola over the pastor’s statement accusing Otedola of fraud in last week’s sermon.

“I am now in the country for anyone that is looking for me,” said Mr. Bakare, adding, “Let him bring his lawsuit so that we can put his integrity to the test.” Mr. Bakare stated, “He wants to see the lawyer in me.”

Mr. Bakare also announced that his church was planning a prayer event for the nation this July, adding that the fraudulent party and people in power would be swept away for a new dawn in the nation, come Nigeria’s next national anniversary in October.

“I invite the South, the North, the East and the West on the 22nd of July to join us in sweeping off the frauds in the government of Nigeria. Only the foolish will wait for 2015 or 2020. We are throwing the corrupt people out of power. July will be intense for them, August will be more intense for them and September will be the darkest night that will usher in the new dawn for Nigeria,” he declared as he raised his voice.

Last Sunday, Pastor Tunde Bakare had claimed in his sermon that President Goodluck Jonathan’s destiny was to run the nation bankrupt. The SIB had reportedly sought to invite Mr. Bakare for questioning, but he was away in Ukraine as the letter arrived. The SIB’s invitation has been widely perceived as an attempt to arrest and detain Pastor Bakare who was a vice presidential candidate to General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd).

Pastor Bakare gave assurances today that he did not flee the country to evade detectives, adding that he was back now and ready to receive those seeking him.

    NOTHING BAD IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO NIGERIA, IF D MAN HAS ANYTHING AGAINST THE PRESIDENT LET THEM SORT IT OUT, THAN ALWAYS PROPHESING EVIL AGAINST THE WELL BEING OF THE NATION. GOD IS NOT ASLEEP TO THE PRAYER OF THE SAINT. I PRAY THAT DIS HEAVENLY RACE WE ARE RUNNING WE WILL ALL GET THERE. I DONT EVEN KNOW WHO TO BELIEVE ANYMORE. THE BIBLE SAYS WHEN THE RIGHTEOUS IS ON THE THRONE, THE PEOPLE REJOICES, BUT THE NIGERIA PASTORS WHO HAPPEN TO BE POLITICIANS ARE TUNRING IT THE OTHER WAY ROUND. WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, PASTOR BAKARE SHOULD PRAY SERIOUSLY FOR THIS COUNTRY AND NOT WHAT HE IS DOING. RESPECT SHOULD BE ACCORDED TO THE PRESIDENT BY HIM. WHY DIDNT HE PREACH SUCH SERMON WHEN OBJ. WAS RULING? I AM AMONG THOSE WHO WANT THE TO PRESIDENT TO SIT UP,BUT PASTOR BAKARE SHOULD DESIST FROM INSULTING THE PRESIDENT. LET HIM FOCUS ON DEPOPULATING HELL.

      This has always been the Nigerian problem, playing on sentiments. No one is bigger than Nigeria, after God all our respect should go to our Nigeria, our one and only country not to any one President or no President.What respect is deserving of a government under whose command our Nigeria has been labelled an international disaster zone and almost a failed state. Respect is earned by ones achievements not by temporary titles, our ” leaders” have always taken us for a ride because of this our culture of according them unmerited loyalty and ” respect”I once advised GEJ to call for serious 40 day fasting and prayer period for Nigeria. Even his die-hard fanatics would agree that they have run out of ideas on the way forward for the nation. We should pray for GODS intervention, human leadership has failed Nigeria, GEJ should have called for prayers before now, he did not, somebody has done that and we are being sentimental about it.STOP IT.We need Nigeria back from this calamitous brink, God can use anybody who has his favor and fire in him, remember that the saints of old were anointed King over Israel,God has not changed he can do it for Nigeria in our time.Lets yield to him.

    Nothing is happening Nigeria is not cracking and we are not heading to any civil war as far as I am concern pastor Tunde Bakare is a politician from the opposition party CPC as a watch dog, bakare’s sermon means nothing much to me because it is politically oriented.

  6. A A Rafindadi says:

    This implies that the government is about to generate alot of problems to the nation which may result a civil war. The nigeria as a building is now cracking, the beams that supportted the building was detoriorated and corroded, it left on us to either pack our selves out of the building or to stay and the building to collapse on us, period. Thanks.
