‘If you miss heaven, you will cry’ – Pastor WF Kumuyi
The General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Ministry, Pastor WF Kumuyi has dropped a bombshell that has generated mixed reactions on twitter space.
GFNG had earlier announced that the octogenarian pastor celebrated his 82nd birthday on the 6th of June, 2023.
Shortly before June 6, 2023 drew the curtain, Pastor WF Kumuyi took to the twitter space to note that anyone who misses heaven will regret it and shed tears.
As expected the tweet generated various reactions from his followers.
Some agreed to the tweet while some twitter users objected stating that both heaven and hell were created by a mere man and are never real.
In his words; “If you miss heaven, you will cry”

@Summerbody042: We both are still running the same race, I will be disappointed if you miss Heaven, I will remind you of this tweet I believe you papa, stand strong let’s ball for heaven together
@DAVIDSANDOW: Among all the promises God promised Abraham, David, etc, living in heaven is not part of the promises. Thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is done heaven. The kingdom of God on earth is our target. Not heaven.
@Jeffanfield: Happy Birthday Sir. May God give us the grace to continue steadfast in His way in this wicked world of sins till we reach the aim of making heaven. Amen
@Coach_Princess1: More like saying after your race on Earth there was nothing to show for it…
@crypt_ayo33: : Which heaven? Something that’s not real lmaoooo
@shedracklaw: :Thank God the way heaven has been paid for by Jesus Christ. All we need to do is receive and believe in Jesus who is our savior
@dkg_prince: We wouldn’t in Christ glory to God. We are saved by grace through faith. Jesus did it all. The believer is saved forever.
@BenvindoUpaleP: : The Lord showed me a vision that not only in hell but those who will miss the opportunity to earn a crown will also live eternity in regret. May God help us to serve Him now.
@kashamadupe24: What gives you the hope that you are going to heaven
@NwoguSamuelVic1: Heaven and hell are man made know things and have peace
Why Deeper Life embraced use of television, social media, others —Kumuyi
The General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, has explained that his ministry embraced the use of television, radio, social media and other technological inventions for the propagation of the Gospel.
The octogenarian preacher lamented that ‘wicked people’ are using the provisions of technology to advance their agenda, hence, the church cannot continue ‘sleeping’ but must ‘wake up’ and use the same technology for Gospel’s sake.
The 80-year-old church leader spoke in a video uploaded on Sunday via Facebook by the Ekiti State chapter of the church.
In the five-minute and 16-second video, Kumuyi regrated that the church was a latecomer in taking advantage of technological tools.
“Why are you the latecomer, why are you the one to be the last to use all these things that the people are using to make the world worse, we are going to rise up.
“Anything at the disposal of the people that are doing evil, we are going to take it away from them and use it for the propagation of the gospel. Let your NO be changed to YES,” he declared.
Earlier, Kumuyi, whose church members were known to detest television, and other gadgets, said, “People are getting new methods and they are doing evil.
These are the last days and evil is growing worse because people go beyond using their natural strengths, natural technology, they use telephones, they use the media, they use all these connections, the Zoom and all these things to expand the evil they are doing.
“If those messengers of Satan are using the present-day technology and they are expanding, how about you?
You will use those things available; they are not only available for messengers who do evil, they are available for the people that are doing good. You will use them.
“The church has been asleep. When radio began some years ago, people didn’t understand how voices would be coming out of a radio, and so the church at that time said, ‘No, we cannot use radio, there is something there that is magical, that is demonic, voice coming out from just a gadget?’ The church said no.
Then, the people of the world began to use the radio. Then the church woke up.
“When television came, somebody somewhere performing drama, they see him on the screen and then the church said, ‘This is evil, these are the last days, look at them, bringing pictures on the screen and whatever they are doing somewhere’.
And the church said, ‘No, we are not going to use that’ but later they woke up and they are now using the television.
“But now the church is waking up and we are seeing that that thing (technology) is to spread the gospel, for the word of God gets everywhere. We will be wiser than the people of the world. The Lord will wake us up.”
Kumuyi, who had been criticised last September for using a private jet and limousine to a crusade in Abuja, said, “Some people, when the aeroplane came, some people said, ‘We are not doing to use aeroplane’ and they were riding on horses.
The bicycle came and they said. ‘God has given us legs and if He has given us legs, why are we going to use bicycles?’
“Motorcycles came, car came and when the aeroplane came, they said, ‘God has given us the land;
He has not given us the space and so all those people who are using aeroplane are worldly, are going to go to hell’.
I am telling you what they said in those days but now, all those people, aeroplane has silenced them and now they can go anywhere.”
