- In fact, the cleric referred to this category of pastors as agents of Satan
The general overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, has lashed out on some pastors who expressed misgiving to his call for the reopening of churches.
Bishop Oyedepo described such pastors as being more diplomatic than spiritual and as such, lose ground to the devil, PM News reports.
In fact, speaking on Sunday, May 31, the presiding pastor of Winners Chapel said that such clerics are agents of the devil.
He said: “Now, ask them: “Do you want Churches to remain closed?” They will just be looking at you. Do you want Churches to remain closed? because I know you are a celebrated Pastor.
“Do you want Churches to remain closed? Then you are an agent of the devil. If your children scatter around and you can’t see them; they now say when do you want them to come back? You now say, “anytime”, then you are a witch."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Oyedepo had released another prophecy concerning the coronavirus pandemic.
During a programme on Saturday, May 23, the famous Nigerian cleric said that the deadly virus will be over throughout the world very soon.
Oyedepo said this as he reacted to the re-opening of some churches in the nation by certain state governments.
He said that in no time, other states will follow suit and lift the ban on religious gatherings throughout the nation.
Emphasising on the brief time left for the disease in the world, Oyedepo decreed: “Watch out, very shortly, every part of the world will be totally free.
"The fear of this noisome pestilence will go into oblivion... Judgment has come down on Coronavirus, its threat is over. “The fear of it is off the sons of men. Every victim of this noisome pestilence is declared liberated today, Nigeria is free from the fear and torment of coronavirus.”
