The Presiding Bishop and General Overseer of the Living Faith Church, popularly known as Winners Chapel, David Oyedepo, has named the coronavirus pandemic as an anti-church virus all over the world.
Recall that Bishop Oyedepo has been calling for the reopening of the Church for worship since markets are allowed to open for business.
He insisted that said that the devil and his human agents are planning to stop the growth of the church all over the world.
The fiery preacher specifically mentioned Ogun and Lagos State for promoting anti-Church activities.
Recall also that Lagos State had earlier came out to announced that Churches would be allowed to open starting from 21st of June but later suspended the reopening till further notice.
Oyedepo, however, said that nobody can silence the Church of God and that many people have testified of how they were healed of the virus.
In his words;
”Coronavirus is nothing but anti-church virus. Now, freedom of worship is no longer a constitutional right. It is now determined by certain individuals. This is no longer coronavirus, at least in two states- Lagos and Ogun, this is anti-church virus. Caution must be exercised”
“Can anybody silence the church? Never. I have never heard of anybody that got healed in the market but God heals people in the church day and night. We have recorded 114 coronavirus healing testimonies, we got 10 this week. And that is the place that is vulnerable and not the market.
“This is anti-church virus we are fighting. It is the grand design of the devil globally to see how he can silence the church.
“Everybody is in the market running over one another everyday of the week and there is no outbreak from the market but there is outbreak from the church, perceived outbreak.”
