The media, ever ready to drink from the well of the charismatic and loquacious, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, has folowed him to his new parish in Njinike, Abia state. Mbaka spoke to journalists on a host of issues, including the claim that he rejected a cash gift given to him by former first lady, Patience Jonathan, when she visited his Adoration Camp ground in Enugu.
On his posting, he said it hit him hard, but “God is wonderful. You can see that I am smiling, filled with cheer and the joy of the Lord. I have the feeling that God’s hand is in my going out of GRA. No matter what caused it, no matter how it was caused, I am seeing everything as the will of God. When I remember that my providing God is with me and for me, I am filled with joy and comforted. The ways of God are divine and mysterious and at times when he wants to do a thing, we humans may not understand it. We may be seeing the external but God who sees the future planned and packaged everything for us.
“When we were leaving the GRA on Saturday, the worshippers in the Adoration Ministry were filled with mixed feelings. I was also filled with thoughts of where to keep the Ministry’s assets because this is a ministry God has blessed. I am not talking about my personal assets which basically are books and clothes.
“But I am happy that, I am here, although the place am posted cannot contain the assets of the ministry, but we have to get going. As it is, I am joyful and the vision and passion have hiked, the vibration is all over and I want to tell you that starting from now, it is no longer going to be the Adoration ministry that people knew before now in Jesus name, Amen.”
Here is what he said about his relationship with the Jonathan family and how it went sour. He had initially blessed Goodluck Jonathan before suddenly changing positions in a fiery New Year message last year. He defended his about-turn this way: “Prophetic area is a life that is spiritual, Holy Spirit controls that atmosphere. The Holy Spirit who gives you life now can take it one minute after. He does not make mistakes and because you are living last night and died in the morning does not mean he has made mistake. He is unchangeable God that can change circumstances. Remember what happened in the book of Isaiah 38. The same prophet who told Hezekiah that you are going to die; Hezekiah knelt down and prayed to God that he doesn’t want to die. Isaiah had not even walked one minute when the Holy Spirit told him to go back and told the same Hezekiah that he would be added fifteen more years. But before then, many people have heard that God told Hezekiah through Isaiah that he is going to die and many of them heard again that the same God said he would live again.
“Prophet life is a gift. God has been using me to prophesy since my days in the primary school and all of them have been true. In my primary three, even when I knew nothing, people will come to me and say, tell us what you know about me. I don’t see it always and I don’t know any particular thing that I do and I begin to see it, but when it comes, I will speak it like that and it will be true.
“So the case of Jonathan and the wife, God in heaven knew that apart from the offertory the woman gave at the Altar, (which amount I knew), I took that amount and put in the bag that one of the aides of the former President brought (it was a small bag filled with dollars in appreciation). But the Holy Spirit said, send back this money and I returned the whole money plus the one she put as offertory. All of them were returned back. There is no one kobo of Jonathan or Mrs Jonathan in my hand. The Holy Spirit rejected all of them. When the saga was going on, I put my hands on the altar, swore an oath that if I ever touched Jonathan’s one kobo, may he win the election and that if I never and am being accused of it, he will fail the election. I demanded the phone number, not for any personal encounter, it was so that if any message comes that we could give to him privately, we will do so. Some prophecies should not be made public, but when the person that should receive it privately inhibits the opportunity of receiving it, God may force you to air it publicly. It burns like fire in your heart. I don’t take bribe from anybody. God blessed me.”
