If you are rich, reading this article and you are not planning to help your pastor in 2018 then you have approximately 352 days to live.

This is according to a Nigerian Pastor, Emmanuel Newman Edward, who has allegedly decreed that any wealthy individual who will not assist the men of the cloth this year will die before 2019.

According to, Edward- the Senior Apostle at Faith Tabernacle Prophetic Ministries- sated that 60% of pastors are suffering and they too have needs.

He is quoted as saying that church goers ask prayers from their pastors on every need that they want fulfilled yet their pastors are living in squalor.

He added that pastors are not robots, have problems and do not have it all.

"Rules for 2018: if you're a Rich man an you don't have the heart of helping pastor's out. You will die before 2019!!

“Pastor pray for me I am sick!! Pastor help me in prayer's!! Pastor this. Pastor that!!
Come to think of this, your pastor is not a Robot. He is human like you!!

“Have you ever in your life prayed for your pastor?? Have you ever asked your pastor, what he wants in this new year?? Your pastor also has a problem that he can't tell you ..unless you sincerely ask him an be of help..

“Don't conclude your pastor has it all. Don't say he is living well.. Therefore he doesn't have needs!! Please No!! Pray for your pastors!! 60% of pastor's are suffering..." he wrote

If you pocket smells money and have aspirations past 2018, I guess his ‘rules of 2018’ are for you and the next time that tithe basket comes your way don’t dump coins on it! A pastor has to eat right? Aha
