DADDY FREEZE AND HIS TITHE CONTROVERSY – ROAD TO BECOMING A SUPER PASTOR OR BUSINESS STRATEGY
Just yesterday i had a discussion with some friends on the tithe controversy posed by Daddy Freeze and i concluded by saying i won’t be surprised the gentleman is planning to open a church and just want to use the social media to promote himself and his ideology. Lo and behold, a few moments ago i flipped through his Twitter handle @DaddyFRZ and my statement was confirmed.
His profile describes him as a Bible teacher and Leader of #FreetheNation movement. And in one of his tweets, he claims the movement believes in propagating the teachings of Christ as against money spinning doctrines.
He went further to insult pastor Adeboye who responded to his tithe controversy in saying it was wrong to drink beer in the house of God by saying the man of God did not quote any scriptures t back up.
Well if anyone is against tithing by Christians no wahala as we all are entitled to our opinions, i used to share thatview until i started to go to church and i got to see the revelation of tithe. It is true Malachi 3:10 referred to the Levites but those who become born again become spiritual Jews and by extension Levites. True Christ fulfilled the law but didn’t not abolish it. While some aspects have been physically done with by his death they still have spiritual significance ad application. For example while we no longer make sacrifices of animals, we do by our time, word of praise, giving, money, etc.
We take things that brought blessings to the Israelite and apply them because we want to be blessed by God. We are blessed not because we pay tithe and other offerings but our tithe is a testimony of God’s blessing to us.
If you don’t pay your tithe, God will still bless you but note that you cannot receive the same blessing as someone who pays his tithe just as if you don’t speak in tongues, you are covered by God but if you speak in tongues you are covered and can survive the storms of this world better. Read – Galatians 6:3 and 2 Corinthians 9:6.
On we being spiritual Jews, take a look at what John W. Ritenbaugh explains on spiritual Jews;
“God’s promises to Abraham have both a “race” (national) and a “grace” (spiritual) aspect to their fulfillments. Thus, Abraham’s physical descendants—Israel—are greatly blessed with material wealth, but all of mankind is spiritually blessed through Abraham’s one great Descendant, Jesus Christ, and so the grace aspect is gradually being fulfilled as each judgment unfolds.
“Here in Romans 2:28-29, Paul is using “Jew” in its spiritual sense. In this sense, “Jew” includes any converted person—even a Gentile. It indicates the church as the body of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23; Colossians 1:18), when we recognize what is written in Hebrews 7:14: “It is evident that our Lord was of the tribe of Judah.” He—Jesus Christ—was a Jew by birth. Therefore, since He was a Jew, and we are part of “the body of Christ” in the Bible’s imagery—therefore we are spiritual Jews. And because we are spiritual Jews, we are spiritual Israelites.
“It does not matter what race or ethicity we are. If we are converted, we are a Jew in the eyes of God because we are part of Christ’s body. That is the spiritual application. If we are a Jew, we are an Israelite too, and because the promises were given to Israel, the descendants of Abraham, the promises then apply to us.”
He was drew his analysis from Genesis 49
The patriarch Jacob had twelve sons, and God had to choose from which tribe His Son would descend. He proclaims His choice through Jacob’s prophecy in Genesis 49:10: “The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh comes; and to Him shall be the obedience of the people.” Jesus of Nazareth was a Jew, as many scriptures record (Matthew 1:2; Luke 3:33; Hebrews 7:14, etc.).
This fact also has spiritual implications for us. Jesus says to the woman at the well, “For salvation is of the Jews” (John 4:22).
PRICE WE PAY FOR REBELLIOUSNESS
What Daddy Freeze did and is still doing in the social media is an act f rebelliousness and ridiculing God and Jesus Christ. To him he is making nonsense of pastors but indeed it is Christ the head of the church which is actually his body he makes nonsense of. Read 2 Corinthians 5:20, Acts 20:28, 1 Peter 5:2
Never rebel or cause your pastors to grieve by your words or actions.Read Hebrews 13:17, Galatians 6:7-8. There are consequences and we must learn how god reacts to that as it happened to Korah and the 250 men. Read Numbers 16:1-46.
It might be that Daddy freeze does not have a pastor and could just be a bastard in the house of God because only bastards could act this way – probably.
DADDY FREEZE AND HIS FREE NATION CHURCH
A christian without a church is not a christian as you cannot go solo. If you don’t go to church you are a religion yourself. A good christian must be taught by someone sent and ordained by God. read Romans 10: 1-17.
Daddy Freeze born Ifedayo olarinde an on air personality with CoolFm Nigeria and based in Lagos claims he is of the Free the Sheeple movement and leader of the Free the nation a religious group he says is to free God’s sheep from pastors he describes as hoodlums is just out to set up his own church and perhaps lure gullible Nigerians especially rich young lagosians who are stingy with their money even towards God or persons who have been looking for excuses not to give in the house of God.
Well done guys for i pity you. only a sheep that does not listen to the voice of his shepherd serves as a meal in the table of wild animals. Please do not stray. do not be distracted by arguments over tithe. it is too risky to come out publicly to abuse men of God or criticise them in such matters as this, Do not fall for the trap of the bird catcher.
it is true there are many false teachers and businessmen who pretend to have the calling and to enrich themselves. let God fight for himself. if you are not comfortable with happenings in your church, be patient and wait for God to answer matters or move to another church rather than humiliate your pastors in public.
Let Ifedayo begin to preach the gospel as it is and make it clear he has the direction of the holy spirit. I am hoping to see him run his movement with his cash.
BUSINESS ANGLE TO THE TITHE CONTROVERSY
I do perceive that all this tithe rants is just to promote his business. For example, he advertises ‘Dicta Yoghourt’ on his cover photo and i am certain more will come. So causing controversy generates more viewership and money to his pocket.
Christians should boycott any product he advertises on any of his medium he uses should he continue to attack the church. Bringing down the church as a means for riches and fame is nothing other than Antichrist.
The message of Christians is the gospel of peace, gospel of salvation. Christians are disciplined and manifest the fruit of the holy spirit. Read Galatians 5: 21-23.
