Archbishop Duncan Williams Marries US Businesswoman

New wife was Assistant US Trade Representative for Africa

One of the more interesting African neo-Pentecostal leaders is the Ghanaian Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams, founder of Action Faith Ministries International. Duncan Williams, who preaches a message of prosperity and success, underwent a turbulent divorce and remarriage to his first wife Francisca between 1998 and 2001, and their second marriage fell apart in 2005 despite interventions from T.D. Jakes and Morris Cerullo. Duncan Williams has now married for a third time, and this time the bride is someone different. Joy Online reports:

…Then last Saturday April 19, 2008, news came out that Archbishop Duncan-Williams was remarrying in Maryland in the United States of America.

He got married to a successful African American public official and entrepreneur, Ms. Rosa Whitaker, who wields so much influence in the United States and across Africa as the Chief Executive Officer of The Whitaker Group.

That the new wife is American is not surprising – Duncan Williams has been mainly based in the USA for the past few years.

The Whitaker Group website has some background on the new wife:

TWG was founded by Rosa Whitaker, the first-ever Assistant US Trade Representative for Africa under the administrations of Presidents George W. Bush and William J. Clinton. Prior to founding TWG, she was an architect of the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) and worked on World Trade Organization (WTO) and other trade initiatives directly under the current Chairman of the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee, Charles B. Rangel, and the current President of the World Bank, Ambassador Robert B. Zoellick. With more than 25 years of Africa experience, Ms. Whitaker has an extensive network of high-level contacts in the U.S. government and business community as well as public and private sectors throughout Africa.

Whitaker’s clients have included President Museveni of Uganda; at least one commentator there is sniffy about her efforts for AGOA:

Ugandans should have a special interest in Ms Rosa Whitaker; not only because she was the assistant United States trade representative to Africa when AGOA sounded like a sub-county in heaven, but also because through her company, the Whitaker Group, she was later to be employed by the Uganda government as the country’s AGOA consultant, some kind of USA-based market scout for Ugandan goods, with a thinly veiled role as spinner for Museveni’s politics.

Ghanaweb adds criticism from the other side of the continent:

President J. A. Kufuor has engaged another American lady, this time an African American, as a Special Advisor on AGOA. Her name is Rosa Whitaker, and she is paid a whopping US$300,000.00…per year, effective March 2005 when she signed the contract with the Government of Ghana.

…Whitaker stands out as an example why Washington officials are increasingly debating what constitutes a conflict of interest in such comings and goings. Whitaker set up the first in a series of business relationships with African leaders and countries while still working as the U.S trade representative’s top official for Africa, according to our sources, correspondence and other documents obtained by the LA Times. By March, she had signed the contract with Ghana, also for $300,000 a year, to consult on the law, known as the African Growth and Opportunity Act or AGOA. “It looks like she’s trading off on her expertise and credentials and in a really blatant way”, said Larry Noble, head of the Centre for Responsible Politics, a Washington watchdog group. Whitaker said her private pursuits were above board and approved in advance by the Trade Representative’s office.

The Ugandan connection had an unhappy sequel last July:

An American adviser to the NRM government on trade and investment has lost a preliminary appeal in a U.S. court to dismiss a fraud case filed against her by her Ugandan housemaid.

Ms Idah Zirintusa, a former State House employee, sued Ms Rosa Whitaker in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia for fraud, unjust enrichment, and illegal interference with her earlier contract with State House.

…In the pleadings, a copy of which Daily Monitor has obtained, Ms Zirintusa further says that Ms Whitaker violated various provisions of the US Fair Labour Standards Act, D.C. Payment and Collection of Wages Law, and D.C. Minimum Wage Act by failing to pay her the minimum wage and overtime fee to which she was entitled for the domestic services she provided Ms Whitaker and her friend Ms Pauline Harris.

…The court found that Ms Whitaker falsely promised Ms Zirintusa that if she accepted her offer of employment, the American lobbyist would provide payments for the care and support of the accuser’s family in Uganda.

Whitaker – rather shabbily – offered the defence that “Ms Zirintusa could not sustain her claims because she was not legally permitted to work in the United States”.

Duncan Williams (whom I discussed here on Talk to Action) teaches that prosperity comes through divine laws of sowing and reaping, and that a pastor should manifest success in his personal lifestyle. A high-flying businesswoman is certainly an appropriate catch; and for her being married to a man of God will perhaps have the added bonus of dampening controversy over TWG.

    • Very True Rosie…thats why I said intresting turn of events …I am tired of these folk that keep saying we are not under the Law anymore so they can do what ever they want…Christ said it plain unless there is infidelity involved then there is an exception.

      • we cant tell if infedelity was what made the to part,its secret amongst them lets not be judges of we dont really explain if asked for details by using offensive scriptures

      • remember is a charge to keep what you have and a God to glorify,why should people spent tym thinkin about others issue,and forget about theirs,we are truly in a generation that every body thinks he is right.

    • what if there was infidelity involved. You don’t know that so shut up!!

      • Many falsely believe if there is infidelity in a marriage that gives right to dissolve the marriage. Not so and we see this with Herod/Herodias/Philip. Even though Herod and Herodias divorced their spouses, married each other (were committing adultery), Herodias STILL belonged to Philip—not Herod. John lost his head for saying so. Paul reaffirms the marital lifelong bond in Rom. 7:2-3—-he even uses the example of an ADULTEROUS wife—saying only DEATH will dissolve her bond with her original husband.

        He again speaks this truth (lifelong marriage) in I Cor. 7:39. Good word, Rose! Thank you for standing for truth in an age where many Christians have forsaken the Lord they say they are serving, but instead are serving their own flesh to their own destruction and the destruction of their families. :(

    • you know just because you wrote all this verses, it doesn’t mean that you know what you’re talking about. the bible gives the right to divorce in the case of adultery and death. so if one commits adultery, then the other can divorce and remarry. but the person who committed the adultery can’t get remarry. study about divorce in the Bible and when its allowed. just don’t be quick to talk with little knowledge you have. believe me i do share your problems too, but i study everything calmly.

    • Yes, I love some of the preachings of the Archbishop but what can it benefit him if he gains all the whole world and loose his soul. Prosperity preacher? Business lady as new wife instead of the wife of his youth? Let God be judge. Many are called but few are chosen. It is not those that call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved but those that does his will. All that glitters are not gold. Adultery is adultery. Bravo Rose!!!

  5. ARE YOU SURE YOU ARE GIVING THE RIGHT INFORMATION? BUT IF THAT IS THE TRUTH, THEN ITS IS WRONG. I WONDER WHAT THE SOL CALL OUR FATHER IN THE LORD ARE TEACHING US THE YOUNG ONE. BLESS YOU.

  6. I need pray to my own family my wife is like my troble

  7. Calvary greetings in Jesus’ Name. I do not know the facts of the case except from those I read from the News papers. However, we should be careful what we say because we may not know what he knows and so far he has behaved himself decently by not going out to run the ex wife down like most people would do. It is easier to codemn and find fault if you are not the one going through the problem. Some of us have been there and we know what it is. I know Arch-Bishop Duncan Williams loves his wife and wanted the marriage to succeed but it did not work that way. It is very easy for some to quote Bible quotations to condemn the man of God; but I advice such people to properly and meditatively read the scriptures and I believe the Holy Spirit will give them a good understanding of these things. God bless all you good people.

    • I TOTALLY agree with u, its amazing how our present GENERATION behave towards people they dont know and might not have met them before… people might be careful with their sharp tongue….
      They interpret the scriptures on their intentions naively and canally without proper meditation to allow the True Spirit (Holy Spirit) to unveil to them the mysteries of GOD in Truth and in SPIRIT…. the BIBLE is BOOK to the CANAL WORLD and they would choose to misquote, misinterpret as if they are reading one of their many Literature Books… but those whom GOD chose to reveal , HE made it UNDERSTANDABLE to them even the DEEP THINGS hidden from people who profess to know the TRUTH and use it as a weapon to condemn/judge others….
      The WORD OF GOD therefore can not be mocked, and should never be interpreted with our Canal Knowledge lest we miss the POWER OF GOD….
      Anything that is not from GOD will not STAND, for GOD can not be mocked….
      Whom had GOD revealed HIS WAY? or who understand the Direction of the WIND?
      BEHOLD HE WHO HAD POWER TO BUILD HAD ALSO POWER TO DESTROY…
      BEHOLD IT IS WRITTEN, HE CREATED THE AVENGER TO DESTROY, HE MADE LOVE AND HE CREATED HATRED… ALL OF THOSE ENTITIES SERVES HIS PURPOSE…. without Hatred, Pharoah would not have tormented the Children of God called by HIS NAME and the desire of the LORD OF HOSTS to perform the wonders in the Wilderness would not have been made known to MAN…
      Without LOVE, CHRIST even the LORD’S ANNOINTED would not have DIED…
      IT WAS WRITTEN, no one was allowed to enter the HOLY OF HOLIES except the HIGH PRIEST OF THE LAND, BUT DAVID in his HUNGRY STATE, went into the HOLY OF HOLIES and even eat the HOLY BREAD unquestioned and without DIEING and have you not read from the scriptures about a ‘good samarithan’ who tried to save the HOLY ARK from falling and was killed instantly!!!
      WHO IS MAN TO QUESTION GOD AND HOW HE DOES THINGS with us…. the ways of the LORD is incomprehensible… HE CHOOSES WHOM TO SPARE and WHOM TO KILL, whom to save and WHOM to set free…. the LORD IS JUST AND THERE’S NO UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN HIM…. we serve the SOVEREIGN GOD WHO INTERPRET THE THOUGHTS AND THE EVIL DEEDS OF MAN, ALL WOULD BE LAID BARE BEFORE HIM, HE HAS POWER TO DELIVER ANYONE FROM THE SNARE OF THE FOWLER AND FROM THE PERILOUS PESTILENCE (Psalm 91….) whatever is the snare, be it law, be it entanglements, HE who knows the evil hearts of man, and understand the SIMPLE CAN SET THE CAPTIVES FREE and who THE SON OF MAN SETS FREE IS FREE INDEED !!!
      WHO HAS SEEN THE WAYS OF GOD, AND WHO UNDERSTAND THE DIRECTION OF THE WIND….
      Behold the GOD even THE LORD had not given us the SPIRIT OF FEAR BUT THE SPIRIT OF SONSHIP, therefore anything that entangles man in FEAR is not from GOD…. AND TO WHOM HAD GOD REVEALED HIS MIGHT???
      PEOPLE SHOULD THEREFORE BE EXTREMELY careful WHAT THEY SAY OR UTTER FROM THEIR SHARP TONGUE…. THE WORD OF GOD IS NOT CONTRADICTORY and it should not be explained byb our Canal Knowledge BUT IT TAKES THE SPIRIT OF DISCERNMENT TO DECIPHER THE TRUTH xxx

    • Am disappointed at how carry d things of God, the word of God can never be debated on, is God telling us how he wants us to live period, its a standard. It will amaze u how many members of action fate go through worse marriages than what bishop have gone through in his marriage that led to devoirce. this action have destoried a lot of homes, mine is an xample, a lot younger children have taken dat road jst bcos bishop who is a role model took dat road & they’ll say their actions is between them & God, what happens to being the light & salt of the world. Pls there is a word called ‘sacrifice’ we sacrifice the lesser for the greater, let’s learn to sacrifice our desires for the word & the kingdom, for christ sake this woman stood with him all this years when he was a nobody( when this so called new love will never admired him) he didnt throw her out is now that he is made a voice in ministry, judgment will indeed begin from the church.

      • There is a great point reflected in this letter.The woman stood by you when you were nothing.Love never fails.You would have forgiven her.Except the love was not Agape.

      • only de good LORD kbnows what is good for mankind,.
        if one of ur hands is pressuring you to do something just cut it off.

        there is nothing to find de minds construction in de face

        PAAPA,we are now coming in the system,
        only GOD can judge you.

        am more proud of you

        and media AND FOLKS out there you should be carefull when talking about such issues..

        PEACE

    • @ Pastor Michael M., You just spoke and wrote as a mature person, and as a pastor. I like your assertions.

      God bless you.

  8. shame, shame, shame on all those who would cast stones at this man. you don’t know what this man has had to endure, oviously he cared for the first wife he married her twice, so give the man a break . he deserves to be happy.

  9. watch GOD. just be quiet if you know nothing…………………………………… jumping into conclusions on men of God could be dangerous………….

  10. who are we to judge men of God? The Bible doesn t teach us that whatever he who has been anointed by God does, we don t have to judge him? have you ever pray for this man of God instead of stoning him with scriptures? how are your own lives? are they pleasant before God? the time you are spending to stone the man of God, you would have used it to strenghten your relationship with the Lord… brethren, let us run away from curse. God bless you all.

  11. ln respective of peoples opinion the will God most stand in your life archbishop.
    thanks

  12. issues relating to men of God are better left for God to handle.bishop d wiiliams has always been sincere and frank about his marriage and re marriage.

  21. WHEN THE MAN OF GOD IS TRIED IN THE FIRE BY THEIR SPOUSES, GOD REMOVES WENCHES!!!. SO STOP ATTACKING THE MAN OF GOD! NOW HE WILL COMPLETE HIS ASSIGNMENT.

    • The emphasis here being “spouses”, plural!

    • I would be very careful about name calling women. God loves her just as well as He loves Bishop DUncan Wiliams, and will help her as well. How would like for someome to name call you. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and I don’t think you would appreciated being called names.

  22. I only recently met or got to know Archbishop Duncan Williams through his video ministry. I was blessed ‘off-my-socks’ and I’m already desperately looking for where I can find more of his sermons as he is not well known in Kenya.

    All I can contribute to this is that Bishop Duncan Williams is GREATLY and MIGHTILY used of God and that God’s ministry will penetrate worlds and territory’s as he continues to serve God, even whilst our comments keep flooding this post.

    He is a blessing to me and my family through the Word of God in his life.

  23. Do not be judged so that you would not judged.

  24. Dear Archbishop Duncan, am sure your grumblers are entertaining themselves wit fib gossips because you have chosen to go by the Lords path and have risen so high in success smashing the devil with Christ’s anointing and establishing the kingdom of God on earth. Your accusers have nothing against you, so they try to magnify what they have. Am sure you never wished it. Your efforts to save your matrimony showed that… Your messages, Dealing with the real enemy and Your warfare is determined by what you carry inspired me greatly and helped me give my life to Christ last Oct. And ever since , life has been wonderful. Infact, I’ve been able to produce a book:Recognizing the enemy, from the entire inspirations and my entire experience. I thank God for you.

  25. under normal circumstances no body is oblarged to judge the man of God , so God is his personal judge

  26. Archbishop is a man that has poured out himself for God. i know he wants his first marriage to work. after listing to his message “pertterns of the blood line” i understood what he went through. i was so blessed and educated by that message. but the painful thing now is, after all this powerful revelations, Archbishop has taken a bow to the blood line pertterns. the question now is, since he couldn’t fight this to the end, will his children be able to make it.
    Nevertheless, i still love the Archbishop. he is a man with an authentic call of God. he deserve to be a happy man.

  27. Just tell me where I can get some of his videos and tapes. I love this man’s teaching, and I would advise all those who have a problem with his personal life to contact God. He who is without sin, let him/her cast the first stone. I have no stones…and all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. God has only required us to love one another, and leave everything else up to him. Sin is sin, and we have to call it what it is…but I don’t know anymore about this man than I do TD Jakes and the others. So, to condemn one, in my opinion is to condemn all. So, I prefer not to condemn any. I have been commanded to love and that’s what I will do. If God would unfold some of my past sins, and some of my present thought,s (and yours, also), I would have to shut down shop. Thanks be unto God for his love, mercy, and grace.

    • Queen, please get the contacts details from our website by Google. You can make the purchase and it will be shipped to you.

  28. By the way, can someone please tell me what website I can go to to get vedeos. He was in Cleveland, Ohio once at a church I attended and I was delivered of some things through his preaching. I need to get more information about his vedeos, audios, books, and all. When he was there, they gave about three free books. I am excited about his ministry and would go to many lengths to get his material.

  29. Archbishop duncan-williams is the endtime hero. Most of men of god pass away because of marriage affair. They are not able to handle the issue for the fear of public opinion. Archbishop the lord is in ur side. Remain blessed. Thierry missionary

  30. MANY ARE THE DEVICES OF THE HEART OF MEN NEVERTHELESS IT IS THE COUNSEL OF THE LORD THAT SHALL STAND.ARCHBISHOPS MINISTRY HAS BEING A BLESSING TO THIS GENERATION THEREFORE I BELIEVE HE DESERVES OUR PRAYERS BUT NOT CRITICISMS. HE DESERVES TO BE HAPPY AND HAVE PEACE.IN THE FIRST PLACE HAVE WE EVEN THOUGHT OF THE PURPOSE OF GOD CONCERNING HIS LIFE AND MINISTRY?. ARCHBISHOP IT IS MY PRAYER THAT YOU CONTINUE TO FUNCTION AND OPERATE ACCORDING TO THE COUNSEL OF GOD. A HAPPY MARRIAGE

  31. Any way the sripture can not be broken.divorce is not the wiil of god , but if one does will remain unmarried as the bible rightly said.tnks

  32. i luv the bishop so much that it is hard for me to believe he will divorce his wife.i have listen to over 10 of his sermons and i now need clarification about bloodline pattern.

  33. I believe dat bishop is a man after Gods heart and he wuld have prayed thru on dis issue. My advice to the xtains is dat we shld not give d devil a place in our midst, we shld always interceed 4 our leaders n ourselves.

  34. hello archbishop.
    happy marriage

  35. I watch Bishop on you tube, I real like the teaching and the way is dissecting the scriptures, surely he is on another level of annointing, I would love the day you come to Tanzania… You are most welcome

  36. It is a pity the way people can run their mouths against a man of God! It shows the level of fear and reverence people have for God. I may not be able to make any quotations directly from the Bible but I do know that it is a sin to speak against a man of God. Let us leave judgement to Jehovah God Himself and continue to pray for both husband and wife while we respect God’s mantel upon his life.

    The Mantle of God upon Archbishop Duncan Williams’ life is obviously so great and many who have had their lives transformed through the way God is using him will bear testimony to that fact. He does not just make himself available to those hungry for the word of God and for a closer walk with God, he painstakingly sources other equally annointed men/women of God and makes them available as well.

    I bless the day he was born, the parents who brought him forth, the day he got born again and his ministry as well as his family, both old and new. Whatever happened, it is only God who knows and only He can and should judge.

    I am currently not a member of Action, but I do have a mind to join them because of the mighty way I have been blessed by their church services and the various programmes they have organised over the past few years. I have also had life-saving miracles in my life, ministered to me through Archbishop Duncan Williams himself at a healing service and another through Bishop James Saah.

  37. Life is not all about marriage,divorce shouldn’t stop the Archbishop from moving on in life.a lot of people including me look up to him for experience and purpose and the devil thinks by touching his marriage he will loose focus, ‘NA LIE’ I have prepared my sermons from his books and have prayed from his books too. HE HAS THOUGHT ME HOW TO BATTLE THROUGH DECLARATIONS. And it always work.We are continually praying for the PAPA. Afterall ‘what shall seperate us from the love of God’

  38. pls.lets all becareful of what we say.
    The Arcbishop is also a human.
    Pls.judge not ,Stop playing God’s role.
    Stay bless

  39. who are thou to condemn an other man servant weather he falling or standing who are thou ?????????????????may God have mercy on you all.

    • This very scripture the Lord quoted to Kenneth E Hagin over this matter as he narrated in his book ‘Marriage, divorce and remarriage’. Christians please seek knowledge prayerfully and be slow to speak!

  40. bishop, may the grace of GOD see you thru!

  41. I don’t want to believe it,that he remarried.Even if it is true it doesn’t change my respect for the man of God.He is serving a God that can upturn,correct and redirect.
    American christians and all christians need Revival.Our generation needs revival urgently.

  42. Interesting responds here…I would voice my verdict but I have none, for it is wise for me to stay silent at the matter. Honestly, walking with the Lord for this long, I still don’t understand his ways. One of the things I don’t understand is how does he come to conclude something as right? Is it what we are thought and perceive as right? Or is what he declares right at any given moment?

    It can’t be the former because according to the account of pharaoh, raising him up for the purpose of displaying his glory and punishing him and his people for doing so doesn’t seem right. According to the human standard of right, it is totally contradicting to his nature of being all righteous. But it can’t be the later, because it would be contradicting, too (if He sets a standard once, and just because he is God and rest it any other time, that too compromise with his character). His ways are beyond my understanding, so I’m not fit to pass judgment?

    Miriam and Aaron passed judgment on Moses, the anointed one of God—they could and might be right—God dealt with them for question His anointed. So after weighting the situation, I found it best to take the path of David. Saul was wicked (the bible declared that); David had all the right to kill him (in fact he was delivered in to David’s hand more than once), but David let the Lord deal with him because David knew that though Saul wicked, He was still God’s anointed. I’ve listen to this man, no doubt the man of God is anointed. I will not talk about him less I bring curse to myself.

    If I’m wrong have mercy on me God.

    The adulteress woman was caught in her action, but the one worthy to pass judgment on her did not. Saying, “He who is without sin, let him cast the first stone.” So how can I? I didn’t extant mercy to this man so I have no right passing judgment. I have never prayed for him, so I’ve earn no privilege to judge him. Only Jesus, the Lord Himself is worthy of judging. And in his judgment, I pray for mercy. That’s what he gave me, and that’s what I’m in depth to. I owe it all who are in need of it.

  43. Matt 12:31,32(but blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven neither in this world,neither in the world to come.it also means blaspheming against things that are being done under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. Do not interfere where u have no jurisdiction.God has called that man of God.why should u try to dismiss and destroy God’s appointed servants through pubications,broadcasts and poisonous words? You are making a grievous mistake! This mistake is called blasphemy speaking irrevently about sacred things.perhaps u might think u are just passing judgement on a man.but it may cost u your life,marriage,business,your future and even your children and the generation after u. Thanks. Erick Venceslas

  44. Please fathers are not angels they make mistakes

  45. I’m so blessed by your messages which had been the driver of my life now, please sir i will love you to be my instructor.
    thanks you are really a role model.

  46. PAPA,you will always continue to be a blessing and an inspiration to me and my Generation! Folks, God deals with us on individual basis……..BEWARE

  47. You have been my source of inspiration. I came to your church very poor and sad but due to your teaching and preaching messages my life has turn around.

    Papa am very proud of you inspite of all the challenges you’v gone through. You are a real man of God.

    You are a blessing to the body of Christ and I thank God for your life.

  48. Pls, i want you all to join me in praying for the bishop if it is true as stated in the website.
    The devil has made marriage turblents a stigma in the body of great men of God. no man or woman will want a divorce for any reason.
    This issue is not about bishop but the presentation of the gospel to the general public. After the devil has exhausted all avenues to get these great men and women of God, the only option they are left with is to unleached attack on their marriage.
    Pls lets rise up and pray for grace and substenace in their marriages. Enough of judgments and passing blames. They need our prayers cos they re contending with demons and the devil has targeted their marriages.

  49. MAY THE LORD BE WITH YOU IN TIMES OF THICK CHALLENGES. YOU ARE HIGHLY FAVOURED!! TRUST IN THE LORD AND KEEP ON BEING FOCUSED ON YOUR GOD-GIVEN PURPOSE FOR GLOBAL IMPACT!!

  50. well, i have read all comments made on this man but the real truth of the matter is that we can either becomes intercessors or accusers not in between. if God has decided not to judge man until the end of his days why then are we judges of man. God alone is the only one that is righteous and no one else you can quote scriptures upon scriptures to back up your claim but the bitter truth is that of the issue of the heart. check the reasons and listen to your carnal motives for throwing mud cos you never know.
    BISHOP GOD BLESS YOU AND MAKE HIS FACE TO SHINE UPON YOU.

  51. I respect the anointing of God upon the bishop,he has been a source of encouragement to me as a young minister, i still believe in him,all we need to do is to praying for our father not castigating him.

  52. how are the mighty fallen. ye mountain of gilboa let the be no dew on .publish it not in gath spread it not in street of askelon let the daughter of the philistine hear it and rejoice.let the daughter of the uncircumcissed.
    The bible says God is not the respecter of person.

  53. I believe in one thing that God knows why all these things has to happen. PAPA deserves a happy life just like you and I. why crucify him when we could have prayed for God to strengthen him and give him the courage to do the will of God.

    Until you yourself passes through the fire you will never know how painful it is to be scouch by fire. You who think you are strong and righteous and so have the gut to criticise the man of God pray you would never stand accuse in anything. Remember the scripture says he who judges another the same Shall be judged.

    PAPA, DON’T EVEN FOR ONE INSTANCE STOP TO BROOD OVER WHAT THOSE SELF RIGTHEOUS PEOPLE THINKS OR SAYS ABOUT YOU. SOME OF US ARE ALWAYS THERE TO SUPPORT YOU IN PRAYER. DADDY STAY BLESS AND ANOINTED FOR GOD IS YOUR COMFORTER.

  54. SOMEONE TELL ME, IS THERE ANY COUPLES OUT THERE WHO ARE AN EXSAMPLE FOR ME IN THE LORD? OR DO I GIVE UP ON MY MARRIAGE THAT I KNOW GOD PLACE AND FIND SOME ONE ELSE. IS THERE A PREACHER, TEACHER, PASTOR OR ANY WHO CAN HELP ME? HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND GOD’S WORD WHEN WE ARE TO KEEP THE LAWS AND WHEN WE ARE TO THROW THEM AWAY. I JUST SAYN? HELP! HELP!

    • FC, Please don’t throw away your marriage. God is still in the business of healing and restoring the wine and beauty of marriages. He can do wonders with yours if you give Him a chance. He is Jehovah Rapha and can heal both of you and your marriage. God bless you as you give Him a chance.

    Never give up on your marriage. Jesus forbids us to divorce and find someone new. Jesus calls that adultery.

    “Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery and he who marries one who is divorced from a husband commits adultery.”
    —Jesus Christ

    Marriage is a “Covenant for Life”

    Why is something that God hates (divorce) so prevalent in our society today?

    It is because people today do not know what the Bible says about marriage, divorce and remarriage.

    In light of Jesus proclaiming that AFTER a divorce, adultery will take place if someone remarries, does that sound like they’re free from the marriage? It sure sounds to me that in God’s eyes a divorce does NOT dissolve the covenant of marriage.

    How can a minister perform the wedding of a divorced person when Jesus said that very night they will commit adultery?

    Most people have no idea what the Bible truly says about Marriage, Divorce and Remarriage.

    Think about it…
    At 6:30 p.m. the minister pronounces them husband and wife. After the minister claims that God has joined them together they go on a beautiful honeymoon and according to Jesus they commit adultery.

    Huh? Yes, that is what Jesus said, after a divorce and remarriage the parties are committing adultery against their spouse whom they thought they ditched at the courthouse. If you are committing adultery on your honeymoon…how can you be married?

    No truly married people commit adultery in their own marriage bed, people in the wrong marriage bed commit adultery. Remarriage puts people in the wrong marriage bed and that is why they are charged with adultery. Why did the minister pronounce them husband and wife if that very night they will be committing adultery I ask you?

    They cannot be husband and wife. You can not commit adultery with your own wife!

    Civil law may recognize this couple as a husband and wife but God does not. If God recognized this couple as a husband and wife, Jesus Himself would not be calling their honeymoon adultery!

    After they are remarried that is when the adultery kicks in…everyone who divorces their wife and then remarries…commits adultery. God calls married sex PURE but He calls remarried sex ADULTERY, unless your spouse has died. Romans 7:2-3

    Are remarried people married according to God? If you say yes, then why is God charging them with adultery? Can a real husband and wife ever be charged with adultery in their own marriage bed? NO!

    Why doesn’t God see their marriage bed as pure? God calls their remarriage bed…adultery!

    “Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.” Hebrews 13:4

    Ever wonder why the ONLY people that are charged with adultery when they marry are divorced people, not single people, not widowed people, only divorced people?

    If someone thinks a divorced person is freed from their spouse, why then are they committing adultery when they have a sexual relationship with a new spouse?

    Divorce does not make you single.

    “A wife is married to her husband as long as he lives.” 1 Corinthians 7:39

  56. FC, read God’s Word to you and pray the Holy Spirit give you enlightenment. Many today are practicing adultery by disposing of the spouse God joined them to for LIFE (no longer two)—see Rom. 7:2-3, I Cor. 7:39. Many try to teach that adultery dissolves the union joined as One flesh by God, yet we see this is not true in Rom 7:2-3 where Paul taught it only DEATH—not divorce, not adultery, not a new marriage—- will dissolve the union joined by God. One example is that of Herod/Herodias/Philip. Who did John the Baptist say Herodias belonged to? Philip, even though Herodias divorced him and married Herod. They were so filled with the spirit of murder at this pronouncement, John lost his head. So it is today when God’s people speak out against the adultery that is prevailing in the midst of those who profess to know Him.

    For those who are calling this so called “man of God”, papa or such……….he is not your “papa”—-unless you follow this man instead of God. If you truly follow Jesus, HE is your “papa” and none other. For those who say “he deserves to be happy”………….yes, and he will get his reward in THIS life………..and then He will LOSE life in the next life. Jesus says, “whosoever loses his life for my sake will find it, and whosoever seeks to SAVE his life, will lose it”. “happiness” is not worth LOSING one’s life in the end. Submitting oneself to God and walking in HIS perfect peace, knowing the great reward lies ahead is FAR better than being “happy for a short season” and suffering eternally. Blessings to those who seek His face and turn away from the ways of the world.

  57. We christians hav a problem. Can u see how we are busy arguing,criticising and fighting one another while d enemy is busy destroyin the souls of men? What is our problem? Adultery or not, annointed or not, i think we should stop playing God’s role and refocus on what matters in the now. Allow God to handle HIS matters WHEN and HOW HE pleases. After all, we call them “MEN OF GOD”. Allow the GOD of the MEN to handle this. All im sayin is… LEAVE HIM ALONE!

  58. I loved PAPA. He had imparted my life. Folks out there,life is nt critising men of God but life is affecting ur world +vely. God bless u papa!

  59. I THANK GOD FOR THE LIFE OF MY POTENTIAL MENTOR.ARCHBISHOP NICHOLAS DUNCAN WILLIAMS.

    MY ARCHBISHOP,I LOVE AND YOUR FAMILY.

    THANK YOU.

  60. There is nothing much to say, i advice every one in JESUS NAME, not to say or touch the anointed SERVANT of GOD. Let GOD handle this in his own way and every body should stay off the man of GOD. Remember the story of LOTS children…. Don’t look at the nakedness of your father …. Keep praying for THE ARCHBISHOP DUNCAN WILLIAMS and his family….

  61. Whatever we are saying about Archbishop Williams we should not forget that He that judges all thing is God. You are warned not to judge before the time. Don’t be too fast to cast the first stone.

  62. Duncan remain my mentor no matter what.l rge every one in faith to pray for him and his lovely first wife.l am a nigerian senior pastor of UPPER ROOM EAGLS ASSEMBLY.

    No comment.

  65. i have always been blessed by messages of Bishop Duncan Willams, i will advise the critics to save some of their precious time in praying for men of God around the world facing likewise challenges rather than stoning them with scriptures! My Bishop, Happy Married Life! Life is a gift…so enjoy your life and Ministry while here. Richard, Nigeria

  66. It’s so unfortunate how we Christians tend 2 celebrate our heroes while things seems 2 be going well with them, but we will forget 2 pray 4 them and give a helping hand 2 them, when it seems they are falling or having challenges instead of those who are ‘more spiritul’ 2 help them as d scripture advised, we start pouring venom on them. Bishop is a voice crying in d wilderness, believe it or u leave it, THIS VOICE MUST NOT GO DOWN. Even if he is making a mistake God will help him not 2 die in d mistake, but if U see d devil, pls help me tell him that, ARCHBISHOP NICHOLAS DUNCAN WILLIAMS WILL NOT GO DOWN, even if others refuses 2 pray 4 him I will pray 4 him, even if God refuses 2 hear other pple’s prayer 4 him, He will hear my own, bcos GOD knows why d devil is after this man, it is bcos of U and I, 4 whom God called d Bishop 2 encourage in this race. Pls, pple of God, lets be our brothers’ keeper.Let us watch our brothers backs till we get 2 eternity. Thank u all my brethren who chose 2 pray 4 d Bishop instead of condemning him, may God keep ur marriages from turbulence and if u are not yet married, may heaven help u 2 survive it when u get there. E. O. JOSHUA. ( University of Nigeria, Nsukka)

  67. Even me pass through Some stuffs that’s real bad.you also pass through Some, even now,yes or no?Men and Brethren Duncan is still valid who he was and is.your accusation is of no relevance right now.The only relevant thing now is your PRAYER.You are blessed.bye for now.

  68. Even me pass through Some stuffs that’s real bad.you also pass through Some, even now,yes or no?Men and Brethren Duncan is still valid who he was and is.your opinion or accusation is of no relevance right now.The only relevant thing now is your PRAYER.You are blessed.bye for now.

  69. Well, I must say that I can not perform the exclusively duty of the almighty creator despite the avalancche of Biblical injuctions to justify his coviction, and this was demonstrated by our Lord Jesus when he commanded the man without sin to cast the first stone,and again the bible said,”for all have sin…”On these submittion I pray for his eminence for God’s continuous grace on him.I can not judge for God because he knows the end of everithing from begining.I have played your massage openly and I know what testimonies,that followed instantly which is a confirmation of your divine mandate.Judges,pls pray for him, if you people are sincere brehrens!

  70. who are thou to judge another man’s servant? leave the servant of God to God bcos it is God that called him & he is working for God.

  71. This issue is more delicate than it appears from its face value, reason why comments too loud and sharp are inappropriate. How many of us have gotten the facts? When Arch Bishop ministered in “DEALING WITH PATTERNS OF THE BLOODLINE” and indicated that his marriage was turbulent and that he had then re-married the wife; how many of us prayed for that couple? Let’s remember that because Men of God are channels to the release of the destinies of many, they are a focal point for the enemy to fight. My prayer points are these: 1). Let’s pray for God’s servants the world over. 2). Let’s pray for marriages (you know the all other institutions came into being because the family as the first institution did not live up to standard)

  73. Let’s pray for our Pastors, cause the work of satan is somehow prevailing among Christians. What we must take note is God is not the author of divorce or anything that leads to it but satan, and satan can only prevail when we stop looking unto Jesus Christ

  74. The greater the anointing,the greater the tests. How is YOUR walk with God? If you have no trials, check your anointing. hummmmm.

  75. dat was how miriam and Aaron criticized Moses for marrying an ethiopian wife. God uses the mess in the bishop’s life and turns it into messages that radically transform our lives for good. haters—- touch not God’s annointed….. you and your perfect lives how many people have you touched for God?

  81. Silly,Silly,Silly who is saying we cant criticise human beings?regardless wether u are a man of God or not you are a human being and therefore when you make a mistake expect the society to express their displeasure especially if your a stake holder of morals in the community.

    • I listen to this Great man all the time. I careless about whatever you say about him. I wish one day I can just shake his hand.

      You who are disgracing him what have you done for the lord. All you know is critising him. Jesus was acused, Moses, Paul, Elijah all experienced diverse kinds of acusation. You guys are not afraid of God’s servant. See what happened to Aaron and Miriam when they came against Moses marriage.
      Look at David, many acusation against him by all kinds of people BUT look at what Jesus said about him. Jesus the son of David. Have you ever think of that. We should careful when we are dealing with men of God. They may have human failures but we are not the judge. I am not saying men of God have the right to do whatever but be careful what you say about the servant of God. They are not your servant.

      Can you do what he has done. With your acusation what have you achieved. Are you a referee. Becareful people. Do you know what God told him in secret. Who are you to judge another man’s servant. God bless the arch Bishop greatly.

      Don’t judge God’s servant, they are not yours. God told Israelite to destroy Jericho. You can just open your mouth and challenge them. You know what, you are just challenging the almighty God.
      Be careful.

  82. Great. I am new here but will be visiting more often as you have done a good job.

    Thanks

  83. please stop criticising agenst a man of God. You no longer remember the fact that he has touch many sauls positively. Who ‘re you to gurdge . Who has ever known the mind of God? Stop, stop, Stop.

  84. i really can’t say a word, but God who called him into ministry can best speak.

  85. marry or remarry, divorce or no divorce, He is my mentor, though i’ve not met him even once, his messages carry the fire of God,he is a man of God, No one has the right to condemn him if God has not. i have my respect for him. touch not God’s anointed includes with your tongue or pen

  86. I listen to this Great man all the time. I careless about whatever you say about him. I wish one day I can just shake his hand.

  87. Truly l trust that Archbishop will not make decission just anyhow but might have think through carefully before arriving at this conclusion so people should kindly stop commenting badly about him.He is a good man of value in this reign.Thank u.

  88. While u humans continue to debate about your neighbour and his ex-wife,another child in africa goes hungry , another soul goes to hell and precious time is wasted,rise up CHURCH n be the sons of God creation is eagerly awaiting to be revealed! Email me on bryce.moody@hotmail.com if you interested in making this world just like heaven.Grace and mercy be multiplied unto u all.In the name of Jesus Christ!

  89. My Archbishop please say no to sin and put the woman away and marry your wife again please tell the devil that you have change your mind and remember that God hate divorce

  90. If you said you know the Bible,Bishop Duncan knows better.My Bishop, please take good care of your new Wife.

  91. No body has any wright to judge a servant of the most high.for all the bible quatations u guys have made u hv nt known the will of God concerning marriage,divorce & remarriage. God is not against devorce,i use to think like u guys untill God opened my eye through Kenneth Hagins book on marriage, devorce & remarriage.there are certin thing u have not discovered in the bible,so i sujest that book & intensive sarch on the word of God for u guys. Pls dont be quick to judge it is against the principle of God.

  92. Wow…. I am not here to judge or take sides with anyone… I will leave all that to God like the word say… But, I do have a question for all the Bible Dr.’s. If the word of God say a man and woman are joined as one and that sleeping with another is committing adultery, then how is ok with God that Abraham slept with hand maidens and was still blessed, and even when Sarah sent her away. God blessed handmaid and her seed to also have a bloodline of kings. Wasn’t this the same with David, Saul and many of the Great leaders in the bible… Some had so many wives and concubines that they may have only sleep with some once in their life… The Bible is interpreted in so many way and lost scroll are still being found in this decade…. and even some things was left out of the Bible by man when the first translation was done, along with some error in the translation are still being found today. Only God know the mystery of his word. Like i don’t know the purpose of this, other then some Mighty Man and Women of God came out of such situations… Look at David and Bathsheba, yes God dealt with him on his wrong doings….God dealt with Him!!!! David left all his other wives and concubine for the love of his life(Bathsheba). And in the end God still Blessed him. Adultery and Murder are both sins, and the word say neither of them will enter into heaven. So, do that mean that God Beloved David, a man after God’s on heart with such great sins is going to Hell? With this Adulterous and Murderous relationship is who God linked Jesus bloodline to… Rev_22:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. Right here Jesus claims boldly to be the offspring of an adulterous murderer… Why not a righteous man like Enoch who walked with God and was taken straight to Heaven that never knew death, and no sin was ever written about?Yet,God Blessed this relationship in the end with the Wisest King of all….King Solomon…. Who knows the mind of God and what his plans are….Who knows the purpose of God true will and all his plans for our lives… If there is one who can say they know the mind of God? That would mean you are as wise as God himself…. now that is foolish… The Word say touch not my anointed do my prophets no harm. That it is God, that will correct… so I think it to be wise to do just that. Let the judging of his anointed and appointed be left to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords…

  93. Even Moses was a murderer, but the word of God say..
    (Rom 9:15) For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.(Rom 9:15) God said to Moses, “I will show mercy to anyone I want to show mercy to. I will show pity to anyone I choose.” We all are living under Grace and Mercy….

  94. i love you i remember the day that you come Tanzania in EFATHA MINISTRY i was there i so bressed from you speech

  95. We respect and love the men and women of God but at the end of the day we all have to be like the Bereans and check whether everything we are being taught and everything we see practiced in the body of Christ is scriptural. Everyone will stand individually before God and give an account to God on that day .

    Marriage is not easy it has it’s seasons no wonder the disciples said it is better not to marry because there is no way out apart from a non believer who leaves voluntarily but we can still pray for their salvation and the marriage can still be restored.

    Even adultery Na’aph – hebrew, moicheia greek is not a valid ground for divorce according to the bible, we have been taught the opposite only Zanah-Hebrew, Porneia-Greek is allowed (during the Jewish betrothal period), fornication as the KJV rightly translates it.

    The bible further says that those that marry will face troubles in this life, please be encouraged by the following testimonies http://rejoiceministries.org/restored.php.

    Circumstances may be very tough but our God is still able to make a way in the wilderness and turn it into a testimony.

  96. I had a divorce. I agonized over it and even waited 6 years for my unbelieving husband to recieve Christ and come back. Satan painfully condemned me and made me feel like a low life Christian because I was divorced. The Lord told me one night (after several years of waiting) “He is going to marry someone else” and he did 4 months later! I remarried, finally, after 9 years of being a single mom. Right before my new marriage I went to the mountain alone to pray and God told me to read mark 3… When I got to verse 28 it hit me…ALL sin men commit will be forgiven EXCEPT the blaspheme of Holy Spirit!! Some religious folk act as if their judgements, condemnation of others, and pride are ok with God! Divorce is not the unforgivable sin. Yes its evil- I wanted to avoid it but could not pull my first husband away from alcohol, drugs, and other women… And satan condemned me, but God set me free. Mark 3:28. Remember to eradicate the sin in your own life before condemning others. Have compassion for people’s pain, Jesus does.

    • As to the question of remarriage as the unforgivable sin——if, in fact, remarriage IS adultery (defined as the unlawful joining of one person with another who is NOT their lawful spouse), then the relationship itself is sin. If we are to say that we can remain in sinful relationships and be AOK with the Lord, then we need to be quiet about ALL other types of illicit relationships. We can pick one, say it’s ok—even though scripture says otherwise, and then come down hard on another type of illicit relationship. All the world will see is Hypocrisy and wonder how it is that one relationship God called adultery is Ok in the church, but other types of sinful relationships are condemned with demands of repentance (forsaking the relationships) to be in fellowship with that Body.

      See, the thing that has happened is that man has said, “no, I WON’T stay married to her/him because of ……………”, then they go ahead, divorce and remarry. In doing so Jesus has said that they are now committing adultery. How can it be adultery? They got divorced right? Well, the only way it could be adultery to remarry is because Jesus sees the covenant marriage as still in tact. The second marriage is akin to an extramarital affair—maybe it doesn’t look like that to us, but it sure does to Him. That is because we have allowed man’s laws to overrule those laid down by God. He made two into ONE. The “third” person is an intruder into the One flesh God created.

      Adultery is forgivable, this is true. Many, many saints have turned away from their adulteries and returned to their spouses. Or, if they have lost spouses due to their sin, have remained single, being faithful to the Lord.

      “remarriage is not the unforgivable sin”………a comment I see quite often. This is a true statement. Remarriage (adultery) is NOT the unforgivable sin. I know of a couple right now who are in the process of rectifying their sinful relationship. They are separating from each other and eventually will divorce legally. That is repentance from an adulterous marriage………since God does not view them as lawfully joined in His eyes, they are doing the works of repentance. I personally know of quite a few people who have done likewise. Some who say it’s “not forgivable” are right in that if they are unwilling to discontinue the sin, it is not forgivable—-they are unrepentant. That goes with ANY sin, not just adultery.

  97. The bible says we should not divorce no matter what. But ur case is d reverse. Preacher of prosperity rather than than on holiness. The master is coming very soon. Rebuke ur congression and preach d messages of God, Christ & not d mind of the people thereby pushing them to hell which burneth with fire and brimestone

  98. Man of God willy,
    Most of the comments are from inexperienced people
    what is required is not who is forsaking the marriage to me the issue is are the so called wives from God or are just Delilahs. ANY WILLY PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE END OF THE WORLD. GOD CALLED TO PREACH PERHAPS BUT NOT TO MARRY

  99. SO SO SO AFRAID TO GET MARRIED. NO ONE SEEM TO SAY TOGETHER ANYMORE. NOT THE SINNER OR THE SAINT.

  100. I cant believe that this discussion has been going on for the pass five good years.
    I have three things, that are not new to this discussion are to say 1. Touch not the anointed of god 2. Do not judge others 3. God hates divorce

  101. the bible compromises not. when God says its a sin, it remains a sin bishop,apostles,who ever is involved. well let God be the judge

  102. sin is sin no matter is involve. God is de only judge
