Pastor Mathew Asimolowo Battles With Illness


 

The founder and Pastor of Kingsway International Church, Pastor Mathew Asimolowo is currently not enjoying the best of health if feelers reaching Global News are anything to go by.
Those in the know claimed that the televangelist is battling an ailment which nobody can define particularly, though some people in his fold say it is diabetes. According to one of the church members, the pastor, for some time had been elusive, with nobody except his close aides and top church members knowing his whereabouts.
However, after some time he showed up but he was not his usual self: he was so lean and frail, which prompted many people to ask what might have gone wrong with the once chubby man of God.
Those close to the church claimed that many members didn’t know the type of ailment Asimolowo is suffering from because it was shrouded in topmost secrecy. But further probing revealed that the man is allegedly suffering from diabetes.
Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that is characterized by high level of glucose in the blood. The classic symptoms are excessive thirst, frequent urination, constant hunger, poor eyesight and tiredness.
Pastor Asimolowo is one of Nigeria’s most flamboyant pastors and he is listed among the top five richest pastors in the country. He got himself into trouble sometime ago in London when the British government ordered him to pay back £200,000 (about N52 million) fine when he was found guilty of misconduct and mismanagement of the church money.
He was also accused of using the charity’s credit card to buy a £12,000 timeshare in Florida and running a commercial business from church premises. Among benefits he received was a £120,000 birthday gift, of which £80,000 went on a Mercedes and his family lived rent-free in a house owned by the charity.

    Whatever the nature of his illness, I wish him a speedy recovery. No one is too big to seek help.

    • Jacob says:

      May this God General receives speedy healing from the almighty he works for.

      God we can’t afford to miss himthis long – hear our sincere prayers.

  2. Akaazua says:

    Hakuna Matata, God that created man shall heal him in Jesus name.

  3. AL HAKEEM says:

    The simple reason he will not seek help or would want his ailment concealed in secrecy is because most those pastors are living a false life; feeling secured and pretending that they are far too ‘anointed’ to seek medical help.

    Again, they have made themselves invincible to their hapless members. By the way, I read that he was fined for using church premises for private business, that is prevalent in Nigeria at Winners Chapel, RCCG, Christ Embassy and many others. I was saved back to Islam after a terrible misadventure in Christendom. I hope Ashimolowo who changed his islamic name ”Ahmed’ to Mathew will run back to the oft forgiving Allah before the irresistible caller calls him the same goes for ”Hussein’ who presently leads the commercial Living Faith Church in Nigeria.

    • noble says:

      Jesus Christ..somebody went back to his vomit? Mathew Ashimolowo that will not be your portion in Jesus name. If you decided to go back to darkness why do you expect them to do same? Changing name is not a big deal Mr AL Hakeem or whatever your name is…work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

    • Goddy1 says:

      First of all let us lay aside bickerings and unfounded as well as baseless arguements, God does not look and judge us in the same light with which we judge ourselves, and for the records, christianity is never a religion which is the reason there are no contradictions in the Bible, in whatever situation Pastor Mathew Ashimolowo finds himself, this is allowed as long as he lives, Ecclesiastes 3 deals with this issue aptly, if we can but show him love then let us pray for him that he recovers and continue with God’s work, otherwise, we should forever remain silent (who has made you judge over a fellow man?)

  21. Joshua Alobo says:

    Pastor Matthew is a man with enormous passion for the liberation of humanity from chain of ignorance. His insightful research and wealth of experience has impacted his unique presentation of the gospel that one may be tempted to be in a management seminar at Harvard or Oxford university. God that has help him thus far is capable of curing him of any ailment. It is totally uncalled for to delve into endless debate on Christianity and Islam with the issue of his ailment. Christianity and Islam originates from father Abraham. Our problem in Nigeria is not a religious but endemic and systemic corruption, visionless leadership and hypocrisy. God will help us with genuine vision that will generate a sense of purpose for maximum impact on our generation. God bless Nigeria and Nigerians.

  22. Josh Otalu says:

    The Lord will not bring upon him non of these diseases; peradventure he has diabetes, The Lord is the Lord that heals him. The chasetisement that brought Matthew peace is upon his master-Jesus, by whose stripe he is healed.

  23. olisa says:

    MAY HIS HEALING POWER TOUCH YOU IN JESUS NAME.

  24. Michael Adejumo says:

    Sir, the book of Exodus 15:26 and Isaiah 53:4-5 will work for you in Jesus Name…. Amen…..

  25. femi olaoye says:

    i wonder what relationship has a pastors health got to do with his religion , pls Nigerians let us cease from the attitude of steering up emotion especially when it comes to religion,let us respect each others view and religion , and God will bless us all. My Pastor you are healed in Jesus name. it is well

  26. Debo Adebambo says:

    May God grant him quick recovery.

  27. Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

  28. Dadi says:

    From the days of John the Baptiste, the kingdom of God suffereth violence and violence taketh it by force. Even Jesus our Lord and Saviour was antagonised on several occasions, spat at, beating, nailed to d cross, it is the custom of the man to derogate christiandom even before the first coming of Christ. (Because He is coming again) Brethren, people like brother Al Hakeem and Olanrewaju will never be found wanting in our society. The bible says, they have ears but still they did not hear, but that does not mean the cannot hear tomorrow. They have eyes but cannot see, but my God in His compassion can have mercy upon them and open their spiritual eyes and they will see. The bible also made us to understand that fake pastors abound in the past, so they will always be. Jesus Himself confirm this by saying he will declare such unknown. Health of man belong to God so he knows how to care for us all. May God heal our able Pastor if he really is ill and may God open the eyes of the blinds that see but did not see

  29. Friday T.Okoro says:

    May the good Lord heal him and grand him quick recovery in Jesus Name Amen.

  30. Daniel says:

    He is healed in Jesus Name. Amen.

  31. Ojo peter says:

    The great healer wil heall you.

  32. Bimbo says:

    Pastor, by His stripe u are healed & d testimny of sound hlth shall be prmannt!

  33. PAA says:

    Who are these people and where do they get their information from. They need to be brought to justice for slander. The man wants to cut his eating, eat healthy and live long, then some low life amebos are carrying contrary news. May God forgive all of you .

  34. mags says:

    Our beloved man of God,mentor and teacher, we shall not believe the report of the devil. You are wonderfully and fearfully made for our generation and nothing shall by any means hurt your. By his strips you are healed in Jesus Name. The devil is a lair.

  35. Peace worior says:

    The problem wt people is finding other peoples fault instead of theirs. Non is righteous including Al-hakeem and his aide olanruwaju. Remain silence and think about those who wil talk about u if u hapen to make it in life. Papa dont mind them continue ur job u are in ur right calling. No need to mention sickness we are christ-like. Its well

  36. Noah says:

    Well well well, Glory be to God, it is a dhame that some people will just open their mouths to utter silly things because the internet is there for them to make silly statements, its nor their fault…ANOFIA ! The crux of the matter is…anyone can fall ill, yes, but some people have a serious tongue trouble…they cannot control their tongues.Do you all recollect few years back when this same Matthew was condemning some other Men of God…especially Prophet T B Joshua? Then Matthew was saying a lot of silly things about SCOAN and TB Joshua. I suggest and advise him to swallow his pride and go to SCOAN in Lagos where one of the Wise Men (not even Prophet T B Joshua) will pray for him and deliver him. But alas, dont move Matthew back to the darkness he left behind….you know what I mean???. The humble T B Joshua will warmly welcome him, rather than die in ignorance and then giving these people chance to insult and mock Christians !!!!!

  37. Noah says:

    Matthew, pls stop disgracing Christians……swallow your pride and seek healing from the elders as said in the Bilble…..The Wise Men are there or better still, log on to http://www.emmanuel.tv and pray with Prophet TB Joshua and am sure God will have mercy on you, But after your healing you must come and testify to this……hhmmnnn, am not sure he will do that…..if he still holding to his pride. May God have mercy on you and forgive, but not without confession and repentance !

  38. Noah says:

    Global News, just wondering why my comments posted yesterday were never published. You can publish the heretic jargon of the Islamic fanatics. You ate a partial, unfair.

  44. Why he should be avoid almost everyone because of diabetes defies belief. There must be something else involved. I know, I am diabetic and 67 years old and have had diabetes for 7 years.

  45. Believer says:

    Dear Christians,
    This might seem surprising to you but ahimolowo is a teacher of false doctrine. He preaches heath weath and prosperity gospel which distorts and mis-conceptaulise scriptures the end product is once you have been deceived by them you will not be able to discern scripture acurately.

    “By his stripes we were healed” does not mean that because Jesus was beaten that all believers become immune to disease and are guranteed healing. God was healing believers before the cross and he is still healing believers after the cross. “The stripes” are the punishment for my sin and because he took them upon himself I am healed from the fallen state of my sinful humanity and freed from sin.

    Look at the context of that scripture we qoute so often. It is a reassuring scripture that gives all believers a hope for redemtion. “Bt his stripes we are healed” does not mean we are immunte to illness and that God heals every sickness.

    Paul, steven, matthew, luke, peter all these saints to name a few got sick like everyone else and were even killed for the gospel they proclaimed.

    Would any of these money preachers die for what they believe in?

  46. Dro Gervais says:

    Oh Lord. Touch your servant and establish his health

  47. Olanrewaju says:

    @Ogbeni Naija
    People like you amazed me! You think Al-Akeem is in darkness? in fact am happy for him that he traces his foot-step back before it was too late for him. Many ignorants like you, use Bokoharam and Al-Qaeda to judge Islam and muslims now. But the truth is no religion is free from idiots like Bokoharam and Al-Qaeda, only if you people know what is happening around the world before and today. A christian left wing activist murdered hundreds of people recently in Norway in cold blood. in human history, the fight between protestant and Catholics remains the biggest religious casuality. A church leader in america married all his daughters at a very tender age, many church leaders in the western world are gay (against bible).
    Only a fool that can not research well would follow meer conjecture like many Christians do. In fact the only faith that teaches reality is Islam and not some never proven magic called miracles, which has becomes tools in the hands of self colonialists called pastors and church leaders. Sometimes i wish many Nigerians can have access to what is happening in the wider world then their ignorant would become a thing of the past.
    Having said that, i happened to have visited Asimolowo church in London early 2004 (on invitation by a friend) and one of his strong point is the research he conducted to proof Jesus christ (ASW) is more of a black man than a white man that he was portrait to be by the American and European Churches. He actually backed his claim with concrete evidences (Another proof that Christians don’t know who they worship).
    I wish him soonest recovery and good health. May Allah increase my own good health including everybody here. Amin

  48. FearofIslam says:

    AlQuaeda, Taliban, Boko Haram … All islamist fundamentalists. This religion that breeds destructive fundamentalism should be a shame to those who lay claim to its membership. Shaaaaame!

  49. Pity! says:

    Those who leave Christianity for Islam are usually the type that feel “bored” about the “dull” moments in Christian worship. Usually such people would look for where the action is – VIOLENCE. A religion that promotes violence under the guise of al-Qaeda, Taliban, al-Shaba, Boko Haram, Maitasine … cannot be called religion but a cult. A religion that promotes multiple marriage – up to 4 wives is breeding ground of immorality. Such people should wear the mask and cover their face with SHAME. Islam is the WORST thing that has happened to this world.

  50. funmi says:

    Christianity is a way of life. going back to islam is simply drawing back to perdition and condemnation! God has not called anyone to be a judge over anyone. the bible says you shall not judge else u shall be judged also! let me just ask you this question, on the last day when we shall all stand before God, individually and not as a group, and you are confronted with the truth that Jesus Christ is the only way, would u have any regret or would u be confused or even happy? but let me tell you, it’s going to be a dreadful day! you should repent before the season of grace and mercy is over! hell is real.

  51. peter says:

    “JUDGE NOT SO THAT YE WILL NOT BE JUDGED”

  52. funmi says:

    Olanrewaju, when one day you’ll need a miracle, and you’re helpless that it is only a miracle that can save you, you’ll know it’s not magic. people like you are many out there. i pray that the THICK VEIL covering your eyes will be removed one day and you’ll know and see the truth and you’ll walk in it
