Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries
Church fondly called MFM was founded by Daniel Kolawole Olukoya in his
living room during a prayer meeting in 1989. MFM is known and could be
described as a “do-it-yourself gospel ministry, where your hands are
trained to wage spiritual war and your fingers to do the battle.”

Militant tone is reflected throughout the teachings of MFM, where it
calls upon members to become aggressive Christians and some of the
groups founded by MFM are wont to call on members to become aggressive
Christians, which even reflects in their names.
The Prayer Warriors, the Territorial
Intercessors and God’s Violent Army. All women are required to wear
skirts and head covers in MFM. Prayers tend to be repetitious of
faith-based claims, spiritual decrees and commanding prayers, often
taken directly from the scriptures and proclaim that safety lies with
Jesus Christ. This same church, MFM, is known worldwide for opposing
witchcraft, and is known in the North America and the United Kingdom for
its stand on the evil practice.
Last week, at the MFM headquarters
along, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun State, the General Overseer in a
sermon entitled: “Inside the Cage of Lying Prophet “revealed some key
secrets to know a fake Prophet. He said that many fake Prophets were in
the street, on the television and on radio today. When you see someone
from nowhere or someone just appears from nowhere, when you can’t
identify the church where he got born again and you cannot even trace
his roots to any church, then you should be very, very careful to
associate with such a “man of God.”
Dr. Olukoya said, the major reason
these people have large followers is the inability of people to pray. 
He said in the end of the world, according to Mathew 24 verse 11, “And
many false prophets will arise and shall deceive many, while the verse
24 of the same chapter says, “For there shall arise false Christians,
and false prophets, who shall show great signs and wonders. In so much
that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Dr.
Olukoya said, many of these things were now happening in Nigeria, and
many signs and wonders we see in Nigeria now are sings of disobedience.
G.O as he is fondly called went further to back his points with Ezekiel
14 verse 9 which says, “And if the prophet be deceived when he hath
spoken a thing, I, the Lord, has deceived that prophet, and I will
stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of the
people of Israel .”
This is one of the key notes of the
sermon. He said that a prophet is a man who loves God. A prophet is the
oracle of God. “They are to correct us.” They are the mouth piece of
God. They always see in the spirit. Prophets are the spokesmen of God.
They are role models. They have a very close relationship with God. Not a
prophet who boasts of having many wives.
The same fake prophets are the same
sleeping in hotel with the wives of church members. Dr. Olukoya revealed
that witch doctors are now being rebranded to lead churches. These men
are always in suits and they see visions. They speak strange languages
that is very uncommon and they called it “Speaking in Tongue.” He
buttressed his points with an illustration of how a girl who has been
begging  God for a child went to one of the fake prophets fear
assistance. The man asked her to sleep with him in a cemetery and the
lady slept with him on a grave.
But the woman saw a padlock in his
hand when she was having sex with him, and the padlock was locked during
the ejaculation and since then, the woman womb was blocked. Another
fake prophet told  someone to come to Nigeria, that he must have sex
with her before she could prosper. Dr. Olukoya then asked the 
congregation that how could a man ask his church members to deposit
water in bottles in the church for seven days?
Pastors now ask member to carry
snake(s) in the church and where was it written that Christians must
wear yellow garment to church in the Bible? Where was it written that
you must incise your body? Where was it written in the Bible that
Pastors must prepare herbal concoctions and ask church members to drink?
The great man of God (Dr. Olukoya)
reiterated that if you saw anybody who could trace his roots or you
cannot trace his roots to any spiritually reputable church, be sure he
is a false prophet. These people, (fake Prophets) now preach the loves
of God rather than go deeply and preach to their members the reality of
hell fire.
A false prophet tell people what they
want to hear. Example of this is: a certain man stopped coming to church
and when the fake Pastor saw him and asked why he’s not been coming to
church. The man said that the man of God (Daddy 70) always critised him
that he had not been a righteous man.
The second point to identify a false
Prophet is: Such a Prophet usually expresses extra Biblical illiteracy.
He tells the people what was not written in the Bible. They say “hix
hax” to cajole people, God said this, God said that.
These people are always seen
vibrating, while preaching. (sometimes ago, according to Daddy GO, a
group of young men came to him, they were all in suits wearing long
beards. They said they were sent from a reputable man of God that, Dr.
Olukoya must not and should stop praying for any HIV- infected person.
That Dr. Olukoya cures HIV that he should henceforth send such patients
to their man of God.
The  third point, according to Dr.
Olukoya is,  some fake Prophets preach the world to people. They tell
members of their church what was never written in the Bible.
