THE General Oversee of Life-Care Bible Church, Bishop Kelvins Okeke, has charged Christians to have a covenant of righteousness with Jesus Christ,  since death can strike any moment.

The prelate made this admonition at Umudunu Abagana, Njikoka Local Government Area during the burial ceremony of Prophetess Josephine Chinwe Amanzechukwu.

The man of God who extolled the virtues of late Mrs. Amanzechukwu  for a life of dedication to God, advised Christians to strive their utmost to be living a righteous life so as to make heaven since Angels of God sorrow with the death of a sinner, while the devil and his demons rejoice.

He said: “Jesus Christ came into the world and shed his blood on the cross of Calvary for the redemption of mankind. Reconcile with God with the ultimate goal of making heaven after sojourning on earth.

Bishop Okeke further advised Christians not to fall into the unscriptural doctrines like one that says that a sinner who died would be saved from hell through a stream of prayers. Stop being deceived by Satan; we only have opportunity to take a decision on eternity while alive, no prayer can save a person from hell. People should be conscious of righteous living and be ready any time so that you will not miss heaven”, he cautioned.

In his tribute, the husband of the deceased, Rev. Dr. Polycarp Amanzechukwu, acting permanent secretary, Ministry of Public Utility and Water Resources, commended the sublime Christian virtues of his wife. “I have consolation and succor that my wife ran the race of life and did not make a shipwreck of her salvation. She was a prophetess and a pillar of my church; I have no doubt that she is in the bosom of the Lord”, he said.

In her tribute, the first daughter, Miracle, recalled how her mother carried her in the womb for 13 months and had a miraculous delivery in spite of her mother’s ailment throughout the gestation period.

Also in their respective tributes, the other two children, Stella and Christian, described their mother as “a soldier of Christ”, lamenting that the solemn promises they had made to their mother to be fulfilled when they start working could no longer be possible due to the untimely death.
