The founder and Presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide, David Oyedepo, has criticized the continued ban on church gatherings in the nation.
The cleric questioned the continued closure of churches over the COVID-19 pandemic, while markets were allowed to open.
Speaking during the Covenant Hour of Prayer on Wednesday, May 6, 2020, Bishop Oyedepo stated that of markets could be allowed to open for six hours, there was no reason churches shouldn’t be open for two hours.
He said he believed that there was a gang up against the growth of the church in country.
There’s something wrong; for people to be allowed to be in the market for six hours and can’t be in church for two hours, it’s an upside way of looking at things.
Which one is more orderly? The maker or the church?
I can smell a rat. The Lord spoke to me on it so strong yesterday. I can smell a rat. Behind all this, how do we stop the church from exploding? The people involved don’t know it.
The voice of darkness is influencing people at various levels, targeting the church because the growth and expansion of the church is the greatest headache of the devil. But the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. The devil and all his agents shall surely pay for this.
I don’t know what hospital that records the kind of healings that the church of God records. And now hospitals, where people die everyday, but the church is closed because the oppression of the devil has no medical cure.”
