The leader and founder of God’s Way International Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim has denied reports suggesting that he once said all his miracles performed were fake.
In a viral video shared by Obinim TV on Instagram, Daniel Obinim explained that the reports are just mere strategy from his critics to cause his downfall.
He claimed that he never made any declaration which suggest that his miracles are fake stating that the reports are false information being peddled to denigrate his image.
“My haters are just misquoting me. They want to turn my words against me to bring my downfall because some of my old pastors I begun with have their church collapsed. They only have maximum of 40 church members…it is the same thing they want to do to me. I never said my miracles are fake or not real. I have been misquoted,” he said to his congregation in the video.
It can be recalled that last month a viral video emerged where the televangelist was heard apologising for some assertions he made in 2016.
Back in 2016, the stylish preacher had claimed that he possessed supernatural powers and could turn into an animal.
“When I enter the spiritual realm, I am hanging in the air with Jesus beside me. Ghana looks very small like a handkerchief. I can turn into a snake and bite you. Someone came for a consultation, and I told her I would visit her with my father Jesus.”
He continued, “when we were going, I turned into a dog and Jesus transformed into a lion. The person was beating me with a stick and the dog told him it was Obinim and she stopped. Right after that, I turned into a human and Jesus also transformed into his human nature,” Bishop Obinim said on his OB TV’s ‘DAYE’ programme in 2016.
However, the self-acclaimed angel of God backtracked these assertions he made in 2016.
Bishop Obinim stressed that he had overly bragged about his supernatural powers and urged his congregants to forgive him.
“I said I could transform into any animal and do what I wanted to people. Those were mistakes. I have the calling of the Lord, and through my prayers, I can help you, but I don’t have the power to transform into an animal and all other things that I spoke about,” the stylish preacher and self-acclaimed angel of God stated.
“I was saying a lot of things that were beyond me. People are asking me to turn into a snake or a tiger. How can I do that? Am I a vampire or an animal? How can someone who has a human body with a wife and children do this? I was saying all sorts of things, don’t make fun of this, I am serious,” he said while speaking in a TikTok live session addressing issues concerning his ministry.
“I have the calling of the Lord, and through my prayers, I can help you, but I don’t have the power to transform into an animal and all other things that I spoke about,” said Bishop Obinim.
