The Clergyman who premised his sermon on 1 Kings 22:1-28 also warned Christians to be wary of false prophets in sheep clothing who are intensifying their efforts at derailing believers.

He further explained that the act letting the Groom kiss the bride in the full glare of both the young and old persons gathered in the church to witness what is expected to be holy solemnisation of a wedding between a man and woman emanated from the teachings of false prophets.

He, therefore, enjoined all true believers to jealously guard against the antics of fake gospel preachers with their false prophecies of prosperity and protection from death, which they use as a bait to deprive unsuspecting Christians of their salvation.
