Man of God Bishop Daniel Obinim of the International God’s Way Church has said his followers actually see him as Jehovah God Himself, the ‘I Am that I Am’ and that most of them actually refer to him as God while a few see him as an Angel.
Bishop Obinim said his teeming following never doubted his divinity because of the signs and wonders that accompanied his preaching.
According to him, his congregation only started to accept his ephemeral humanity when they heard of his illicit and amorous relationship with the wife of a junior pastor in the church. He boasted that until that blot on his hitherto untainted ecclesiastical calling, his church members thought he belonged elsewhere but certainly not this earth.
Bishop Obinim made the disclosure on TV3 last Saturday when he appeared on the comeback Delay talk show, hosted by Delores Frimpong Manso.
The unrepentant Obinim told Delores that he had not regretted having sex with the wife of his junior pastor because that incident had turned to be a bigger blessing in his life and Christian ministry.
The Christian leader confessed that he flirted with the married woman for two years. He however insisted it was the woman who ingratiated herself with him.
The flauntist preacher claimed that when he wanted to end the adulterous relationship, she refused and begged him to make her his second wife.
Speaking about his wealth, Bishop Obinim, inching towards 34, described himself as a wealthy person with four cars and two houses even when he was just 22 years old.
The bishop said many of the negative stories about him in the media were actuated by envy. But he was not disturbed about such stories because the number of persons who celebrated him was more than those who disdained him.
The materialist Obinim claimed that he acquired most of his cash and property through gifts from persons he had prayed for who had “received their miracles.”
Making a case for his position, he said he recently received a cash amount of two hundred million cedis from a church member whose sterility was overcome after he (Obinim) had prayed for the man’s wife to deliver.
