Celebrating Christmas Is Not Biblical – Daniel Olukoya

OlukoyaGeneral Overseer, Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM), Daniel Olukoya, has come out to shed light on why his church does not celebrate Christmas.

The man of God revealed this during the Wednesday Manner Water Service which coincided with the 2019 Christmas celebration at the Church’s Headquarters in Lagos.

According to him, they do not celebrate December 25th because it is not biblical.

He added that no book in the bible recorded the word “Christmas” or that Christ was born on Dec. 25.

His words, “If you really study the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, there is no word like Christmas.

“The bible only recorded that the Shepherds were taking care of their flocks during a very cold season when they sighted the star that announced the birth of Jesus Christ.

“This cold period could be around April or May.”

Is he making sense?

The Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM) is a Pentecostal denomination founded in Yaba, Lagos, Lagos State, Nigeria in 1989, now with churches in several countries. It was founded by Daniel Kolawole Olukoya (“DKO”). Many publications on deliverance have been credited to Olukoya, such as the popular prayer book known as The Prayer Bible.

Unlike a few popular charismatic and Pentecostal African initiated ministries promoting prosperity gospel, MFM’s leadership and its sub-ministry, Battle Cry Ministries, place emphasis on deliverance ministry and prayers against the works of demonic forces. It incorporates an African spiritual worldview and the existence of hidden evil and spiritual forces against progress as part of its theology, resulting in a theology that promotes ritual practices dominated by prayers to free individuals from those hidden forces.

Mountain Of Fire And Miracles Ministries was founded by Daniel Kolawole Olukoya at a prayer meeting in 1989 in his living room.

From humble beginnings in the home of Olukoya, MFM has grown to over 300 churches within Nigeria and branches in African and Western countries. Those branches located outside the African continent mainly cater to African immigrant population.
