Nollywood actor Yul Edochie had said that the time has come for him to carry out his calling as a minister of God.
The actor admitted in a viral video that he had received a summon from God to serve as a minister of religion, but he ignored it because he felt the moment was not appropriate.
Edochie asserted that the call recentlybecame more insistent, and he is now persuaded that the time has arrived for him to follow the summons.
He also said that despite being a minister of God, he would continue performing. Instead, he would make sure that his films served to spread the gospel.
“I have a calling to serve God and be his minister of God. I have a calling to be a preacher of God, to preach the word of God through action. I have had this calling a long time ago, actually, many years ago,” he said.
“But I always felt the time has not come, or the timing wasn’t right. But now, it’s very strong. I feel the time has come. God has blessed me in this life and by the grace of God, I have become one of the biggest and most celebrated actors in Nigeria and Africa.
“I have realised God lifted me as an actor so I can become one of his ministers and use that fame to preach the world of God. My purpose in life is to become a minister of God and touch lives.” He said.
