Apostle Oboh: Synagogue, Church of All Nations must be kept alive

Former boxing champion Apostle Peter Oboh has said that the Synagogue, Church of All Nations, must be kept alive, and no political reason should be allowed to shut it down.

Founder Temitope Balogun Joshua passed away five months ago, and Oboh likened him to a good shepherd, whom if killed his flock scatters.

“I advise all ministers of God to always train the next person meant for the position and let it be well known to all the churches and let the new leader starts mentoring the next man to be the leader,” Oboh continued.

The 53-year-old urged the members to observe the newly appointed leader and propose corrections if he was not found capable. He also noted that the members have “a lot to learn from Jesus”.

“Note that while Jesus was on earth, he allowed his apostles to function in power. Not just that, he made the whole church to know that Apostle Simon Peter is the very one that will take over from him.

“While Jesus was on earth with his apostles, he nurtured them with the secret of his ministry, which is obedience to God.

He said Jesus allowed the apostles to function as a leader, so they could continue from where he stopped — something that the church can do today.

“One thing we must learn is that Jesus and Simon Peter were not related. It is not all the time a family member of the late leader of a church must take over.”
