The Ace Drama Minister, Evang. Mike Bamiloye has reacted to a recent post of Evangelist Tola Bolaji that says Christians should buy gospel movies and not expect free show, download.
Bamiloye reacted to Bolaji’s statement on his facebook page some minutes ago airing an opposite view.
Recall that Gospel Film News had published a news two days ago where the screenwriter, Tola Bolaji cried out that Christians should support Gospel Film Makers by buying their films and not expecg free show or download.
Below is Bamiloye’s post:
“NO, WE ARE NOT SPOILING THEM!
I read an article from a Dear Brother saying we have spoilt the Christian Brethren and Church by showing them FREE MOVIES, instead of making them to pay for it in order to have money to make another movie.
He said this is a SURE WAY to Poverty and reasons why many of us in Drama Ministry are suffering.
BUT THIS IS MY RESPONSE:
No, we are not spoiling the Brethren or the Church, Brother, what we have actually done is this:
WE have simply bought an Expensive Alabaster Box of OINTMENT, and broken the stone bottle and WASTED the expensive OIL on the Head of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Did you know that some of the Disciples complained that the Woman ought to SELL the OIL instead of Wasting it and the Money would have been given to the Poor. But Jesus said they should never trouble the Woman, because she has done the Sacrifice for Him.
Philippians 3:7-8 NKJV
 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.
 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ.
Presently, today, ABEJOYE 3 was premiered in 136 Programs in December 2019. Ans it is On 170 Program Venues in January 2020 and with 90 Program Bookings already in February.
THE LAND OF FURY was premiered in more than 300 venues Worldwide Freeeee!
And SHACKLES went to many places across the nation FREE.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT MAKE US MORE JOYFUL?
As WE BREAK THE EXPENSIVE ALABASTER BOX OF COSTLY OINTMENT, THE FRAGRANCE OF SALVATION, REVIVAL, RESTORATION AND REDEDICATION OF LIVES GLADENS THE HEART OF JESUS, even though some Beloved Brethren feels the OINTMENT should have been sold for MONEY and USED for some better things.
And by the Way, everybody knows we do make DVDs and sell. And some of the times, we do distribute the DVD free at programs. That is the we operate in drama ministry.
But a striking Question is this?
Are DVDs selling today, the IT Digital days, as they used to sell in those days? People buy only one DVD and they or Pirates put it on You Tube for you.
How many DVDS are the Secular Movie makers in the Industry producing today?
If you are not called into this Ministry, you would easily be discouraged. And some who were CALLED have actually been discouraged by some people’s discouraging counsels.
Drama And Film Productions ministry is a CALLING!
It is a Ministry!
You have to be CALLED into it to be happy in it, or else you live with Grumblings and Murmuring.
It is a Ministry.
It has a Divine TEMPLATE YOU CAN NOT DEVIATE FROM.
I have not yet seen Any Person who Deviated from it and Have succeeded in it yet.
THE MINISTRY HAS A DIVINE TEMPLATE, THAT CAN NOT BE DEVIATED FROM SUCCESSFULLY.
Some people thought that Drama Ministry is in Poverty.
No. That is a Contradiction!
How can we be in Poverty and still be rolling out edifying movies incessantly all year round?
We are not in Poverty.
We do pass through the Wilderness of some lacks from time to time,
BUT the Lors has always been there for us.
He is the Lord our Provider.
We have learnt never to Put our Trust in Man.
We have learnt never to look up to the CHURCH Of God,
but rather to look up to the GOD of the Church for our Help.
IT WAS NOT THE CHURCH THAT CALLED US INTO THE MINISTRY, BUT GOD WHO OWNS THE CHURCH.
I greet all Drama Ministers. Great Men and Women who are using their available Stones against the Entertainment World of Goliaths.
(1 Corinthians 15:58)
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”
May the Lord bless you all.”
