Nigerian Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Kelvin Ugwu, has advised singletons to avoid prophecy when choosing who to marry.
The Malawi-based priest, in a post shared on his Facebook page shared his chat with a distraught follower who sought his advise after receiving a prophecy that his girlfriend of three years is not “the one”.
In response, Fr Ugwu warned against choosing a life partner based on a prophecy received from people, but instead people should choose their wife or husband by themselves because God doesn’t choose spouses for people.
Read their chat below:
Him: “Good morning Padre
How are you today?I have something bothering me.”
“I am into a relationship with someone who I hope soonest to get married to after my service n yesterday a message came via prophecy that she isn’t the one.”
“The relationship is 3years. I have built my world around her and I can’t start thinking of walking out of it. I find her 90% compatible and I love her like say tomorrow no dey.”
Me: So where did the prophecy come from?
Him: “A charismatic sis”
Me: So how can I be of help to you? Or how do I come in?
Him: “Ur advice on what to look out for in marital choice.”
Me: My advice:
Avoid prophecy in choosing who to marry. Every choice comes with its consequences…good or bad. God is not going to be the one to choose wife for you
If you want to let the girl you have dated to go, let it never be because of any so called unsolicited prophecy. Let it be your choice. In the same way, if you decide to marry her, let it never be because there was a prophecy for you to marry so and so. It is all your choice to make, not even God can make it for you
