The general overseer of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet TB Joshua, has responded to the reopening of churches order by the Lagos state government.
In a message addressed primarily to his church members on Wednesday, August 5, the clergyman said that though the move by the government is a commendable one to reopen churches on Sunday, August 9, it will not do so until he hears from God.
TB Joshua assured his followers that as soon as God speaks, he will let them known when physical services are to resume.
“Good Morning And Win Today! Following the announcement that church services will resume in Lagos on August 9th, 2020 - that is, this coming Sunday - I wish to commend the authorities for their efforts so far.
"However, having heard from the authorities, we are now waiting to hear from God. Please be assured that as soon as we hear from God, we will inform you when our services will resume. Emmanuel - God is with us," he said.
The man of God spoke in his usual calm manner as he slowly picked his words while sitting during the address.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the SCOAN overseer finally revealed what he does before he comes to the altar to preach.
The cleric said that his resting time is when he receives from God, while his working time is the period he comes to the altar to preach.
TB Joshua later showed in the video the mountain he goes to commune with God. In the video, he could be seen with a Bible as he muttered what seemed like prayers.
“Resting time is time to receive from God. Working time is time to give what we receive from God. This is a difficult time where every day is filled with uncertainty. These are some of the places I spend my time to receive this message," TB Joshua said as he posted the video.

He stated this in a question and answer session on Emmanuel TV on YouTube, in which he said whatever the situation a believer finds himself, it is for his obedience to God.
He said: "Christians, do not make the mistake of thinking that you are ‘out of touch’. God often uses 'anything' to preserve us and to strengthen our desires and determination for God. Whatever your situation as a believer, it is all for your obedience to God (Hebrews 5:8)."
