BREAKING NEWS: More Crisis In Christ Embassy Deepens As Oyakhirome moves Against Sinach

TrackNews reports that that crisis of confidence erupting Christ Embassy church has deepened as Chris Oyakhilome tightens the noose against Sinach, a gospel artist...READ THE FULL STORY HERE▶

Pastor Chris Oykhilome is the founder of Christ Embassy, also known as Believers Love World. Osinachi Egbu, fondly called Sinach had been the anointed daughter of Chris Oyakhilome and a member of the church until recently when her appearance at the church numerous services dropped to zero level.

Information has it that Sinach was groomed in Christ Embassy and given a platform to showcase her talent. She has enjoyed the love and support of Oyakhilome over the years.

It became obvious that the relationship between the two is not as solid as it used to be when a few years ago Sinach attended the annual interdenominational programme, The Experience, which is usually organised by the founder of House on the Rock, Pastor Paul Adefarasin.

Her attendance enhance insinuation that she had switched church and become a member of Adefarasin’s led church.

Beyond that, signs that the relationship has broken down irretrievably emerged when Sinach’s ministry grew in leap and bounds and virtually stopped attending Christ Embassy because of different singing engagements that took her round the world. Oyakhilome was not too pleased with the fact that she wasn’t active in church again.

Even when Sinach and some other gospel singers, who grew and became established through Christ Embassy, ministered in some of the branches of the church, it was alleged that they demanded large sums of money as royalty which Oyakhilome consistently frowned at.

He instructed Sinach to return to her local assembly and be part of the singing ministry there.

He also encouraged her to take Christian singing engagements almost for free as a sort of blessing to the body of Christ, but the gospel act would have none of that.

The pastor allegedly stopped most of her songs from being played or performed in his church and the decision also affected other music ministers who were discovered in the church.

Oyakhilome had called for a gospel ministers’ conference where he expected the gospel act to be in attendance and even play a major role, however, she didn’t turn up for the conference.

The cleric felt disappointed that Sinach should be a role model for all other established acts from the ministry, but she has ignored most of the instructions he gave and has not been on very good terms with her since then.

The singer made a cryptic post last week on her Instagram page and many alleged that she was referring to the issue she had with her pastor. She wrote that what has happened to her as a gospel minister has in no way hindered her ministry but it has helped to further expand it.

This, perhaps, may have provoked what has been described as an attack on Sinach’s lyrics by Oyakhilome especially her “Way Maker,” a contemporary worship song released as a single on 30 December 2015.

The song has been covered by a number of Christian music artists worldwide including charting hit versions by Michael W. Smith, Mandisa, Leeland and Passion.

Sensational parts of the song include “Way maker,” “Miracle worker,” “Promise keeper,”
“Light in the darkness,”

But during a recent service, Pastor Oyakhilome indirectly attacked the key messages in Sinach’s popular song saying that “God is not a miracle worker. He is not a promise keeper. He is not a light in the darkness. As you hear the word and you are thought, we are the miracle worker.
“He is seated at the right hand of the Father. He is in the sabbath.
“He is not working now. The Bibles says He is waiting till his enemies is made his footstool. But He must reign till then through us. So, we are the miracle worker.
“All the promises has been fulfilled in Christ. He is not keeping any promises. You are the result of his promises,”

Oyakhilome told the large congregation which has gone viral on social media.

Reacting, Pastor Ekene Nicodemus of God Own People International Ministry said “He {Oyakhilome} has a personal issue with his praise and worship leader SINACH so he’s trying to DESTROY her label using the holy altar.”
