Bishop Oyedepo questions non re-opening of churches amid Covid-19

Nigerian pastor and general overseer of Living Faith Church Worldwide also known as Winners’ Chapel International, Bishop David Oyedepo has questioned the inability of government to re-open churches after they’ve allowed markets to open.

According to him, he can smell something fishy. And that if markets could be allowed to be open for six hours, why can’t churches open for two hours.

He said this on Wednesday, May 6 during Covenant Hour of Prayer Programme.

His statement reads below;

“There is 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 is an upside-down way of looking at things.

“Which one is more orderly? The market 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 every day, are open, but the church is closed because the oppression of the devil has no medical cure.”
