A Nigerian preacher, Charles-Philip Okiemute, said anyone with up to a million in their bank account on the day of the rapture will not make heaven because the money is useless.
Okiemute made the claims while preaching at The Ark Of God Endtime Ministry in Lagos recently.
In a video making the rounds on the internet, the preacher told his congregation that earthly wealth is worthless in heaven.
He also expressed disappointment at an unnamed musician who splashed N900 million on a luxurious car, saying the money was enough to end poverty in the musician’s village but he decided to splash it on an automobile for himself.
He queried whether the singer would drive the car to heaven.
The clergy said, “I dey social media, one musician buy a car of N900 million; for one car! And customised his plate number. So, I asked myself, ‘This car, you go drive am enter heaven?’
“They said Nigeria is poor and one musician in Nigeria used N900 million to buy car. That N900 million he fit carry enter him village, he go give all his village people. Their village no go poor until them die again.
“Any man wey get N1 million for him account before trumpet sound, you no dey go anywhere. Because that money is not useful in heaven or hell.”
