I thought it was against Christianity: Deeper Life Pastor Who Becomes A King After Running From It For 10 Years

  • A Deeper Life Bible Church pastor who became king in his community has shed light on some events that played out before his coronation
  • King Matthew Jegede said when he told church leaders and members about the idea of him returning to his Ekiti community to become a king, they didn’t approve of it
  • The pastor said he kept 10 years away from the kingship for 10 years and was surprised at what happened on the day he received the staff of office

Against all odds, a Deeper Life Bible Church pastor identified as Matthew Jegede was crowned a king in Ekiti state.

He faced a battle with himself and the church

King Matthew told BBC News Yoruba in an interview that his church people were not in support when the talk of him taking the kingship came up.

He also personally had reservations about it as he had thought that becoming a king as a Christian was against God’s plan.

“I initially thought it was against God’s plan to become the King …I also thought that if one wants to go to heaven, it will be difficult, he said.”

According to him, the church told him to pray about it. He first ignored their directive before committing to it.

Matthew said he kept having king-like dreams, a confirmation that he was born to be the king.

And after running away from the kingship for 10 years, he accepted it not minding his church members’ sentiment that was against it.
