Dr. Sunday Adelaja, I really weep for you that you of all people, you could allow the devil to abort and destroy your ministry and destiny, thereby allowing God’s huge investment on you to be wasted.
I am writing to you this open letter hoping that you could allow the Holy Spirit to use it to minister to you as to be able to make use of the letter or you can allow the devil to use it to anger you as to despise the letter.
I am writing to you this open letter to remind you that God is still the God of a second chance. He said in Revelation 2:5 “Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Of a truth, when I listen to most of your proud and arrogant statements, I begin to ask myself if you have ever read 1Corinthians 4:7 which says, “For who makes you differ from another? And what do you have that you did not receive? Now if you did indeed receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?
Please, it is pride and arrogance to be talking of what you have done in the past because it is God who used you to accomplish those things. Jesus said in John 15:5 “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing”.
Last time I was listening to you and I overheard you say that no man of God in Nigeria, not even Archbishop Idahosah had accomplished in ministry what you have accomplished.
I wish to point out, this statement is uncalled for. This is because your achievement is relative to your callings and ministry.
I really know that this is a bitter truth to you but I want you to realize that it is your trying to steal the glory of God that made the Spirit of God leave you.
Please, my dear, what you accomplish is determined by God’s calling in your life and it is what God called you to do that you are answerable for. All you are doing are what makes you popular and not what brings God the glory.
I want you to look at what the book of 2Timothy 2:19 – 21 which says, “Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.”
But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor.
Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.
From the above verses, it is the type of vessel that you are made up of that determines what is expected of you or what you accomplish in ministry. Assuming that you are a vessel of Gold, it will be foolish of you to be comparing your accomplishments with the vessel that is made of wood or clay.
Remember what 2 Corinthians 10:12 said, “For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
In other words, you need to be mindful of your calling and stop poke nosing into the ministry and calling of another man. What you are called to do in ministry differ from what other men of God are called to do, but the important thing is that you fulfill your ministry.
Of a truth, you are but a motivational speaker, manifesting your oratory and charisma but all your messages lack unction. remember what 2 Corinthians 3:6 says, ” Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life”.
Please, I pray that God will give you understanding. Be sure that you do not leave the vineyard where you were assigned to work but go and be laboring in another man’s vineyard.
Let us assume that you are the most influential and popular man of God in Nigeria or in the world, what does it translates to if at the end what you hear from Jesus is “Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels”: Please read also 1 Corinthians 12:1 to end.
Galatians 2:6 – 9 says, But of these who seemed to be somewhat, (whatsoever they were, it maketh no matter to me: God accepteth no man’s person:) for they who seemed to be somewhat in conference added nothing to me:
But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the circumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;
(For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:)
And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen and they unto the circumcision.
What the above is talking about is to show that every man of God is given the grace based on the specific assignment given to him. So, you should know and mind the assignment given to you and stop this competition of trying to prove who is the most popular man of God…
Talking about popularity, it is a function of the number of people you can influence their decisions, people that gives heed to your instructions. As of now, the only audiences you have are the YouTube audience.
You need to go back to God in repentance if you don’t want your life and ministry to be cut short by the devil. Remember and learn from what happened to King Nebuchadnezzar as recorded in Daniel 4:30 – 31 which says, The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honor of my majesty?
While the word was in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.
Also, there are certain issues about you that Is highly disturbing. That you are living a life contrary or opposite of what you preach which is hypocrisy. For instance, you posted an article on your website captioned seven steps to avoid sexual sin and stay in ministry!
Is it not unfortunate and Hippocratic that it was the same $exual sin that got you fired or cost you your own ministry?https://www.zimeye.net/2016/03/27/breaking-news-pastor-sunday-adelaja-fired-over-sex-scandal-2/ Please see also https://www2.stetson.edu/~psteeves/relnews/160325c.html
Please see also the Special statement from the press service of the ROSHW titled “Sunday Adelaja confessed to the sin of fornication”. (Please the website cni news is written in Russian Language and needs translation to English). https://www2.stetson.edu/~psteeves/relnews/160325c.html
In another development, it is reported that you Sunday Adelaja was excommunicated by the Head churches of Ukraine. http://afmedia.ru/zhizn-cerkvi/glavy-cerkvey-ukrainy-otluchili-adeladzha-i-muntyana ( the above website is in Russian language, so open the link with Google Browser for automatic translation to English)
If that information is true, I advise you not to leave Ukraine without resolving that issues because it is dangerous for you and for your followers if you continue to operate while excommunication is hanging on your neck.
