Living faith church popularly known as winners chapel, general overseer Bishop David Oyedepo, has threatened the federal government that fire will fall if churches are shut down again.
Oyedepo, speaking against the closure of churches due to COVID-19 in a church sermon, on Sunday, August 2, said why can’t the government close occult houses the same way it shut down churches.
“I know the world will come to the point where we’ll say we are being fooled cause the devil that is deceiving the world, he has the capacity to deceive the whole world”, he said.
“Thank God we are not fooled, Thank God we have not been fooled, Thank God he made us smarter than our enemies. Its only here they lay hands on Coronavirus patients and then walk free and heal them straight.”
“Could they have asked me in person, Should we shut down the church? Can anybody ask me that question? No.. they know where to ask, they know who to call. There are many pastors like that in this country, you can’t dare them. Did you close down the occult houses? the Ogboni houses? Did you close them down? Don’t you go there yourself?
“The next time anybody tries that, Fire will fall!”.
Oyedepo stated this a day after the Lagos State Government announced that worship centers can resume activities as from August 7.
