Flood disasters a fulfilment of end time - clergyman

19 November 2012, 07:15

Uli - A clergyman, Mr Chukwuma Dike, on Sunday described the recent flood disaster in parts of the country as part of the fulfilment of the Bible prophecies marking the end time.

Dike made the observation while delivering a sermon at the 2012 Safeguard Your Heart District Convention of Jehovah Witnesses in Uli, Ihiala local government area of Anambra.

He argued against the insinuation that the disaster was a punishment following the magnitude of sins committed against God.

"Before the flood disaster, we have experienced worldwide economic recession, food shortages, energy problem, climate change and new sicknesses that had brought various health problems to many.

"All these challenges can be traced to the fulfilment to the Bible prophecies marking the end of the present era," Dike insisted.

The clergyman, who quoted the Isaiah 65:13,14, 17-19 and 21-23 to buttress his point, said God’s plan was to bring changes that would eclipse the suffering of mankind.

Dike urged Nigerians to rely on God by putting trust in him rather than responding angrily for being victims of the end time event.

He also urged Nigerians who had yet to assist victims of the natural disasters and other problems to do so in the interest of mankind.
