Papa as he is fondly called by his follower, Bishop David Oyedipo of Living Faith Church World Wide also know as winners’ Chapel, in his new year message to his congregations , said the devil is using the Coronavirus pandemic to attack the church of Christ, he said, that there is nothing in the pandemic to be afraid of as a Christian who totally believed in the efficacy of the power of God.
Recently, bishop Oyedipo organized this year Shiloh, a spiritual occasion been organized by the church, annually. He has constantly criticized every protocol put in place by the government to curb the spread of the novel pandemic.
In his word, “When the church goes against a man, his destiny is finished. When the church goes against a system, that system will crash.
Men and brethren, there is nothing in Covid-19. One of the governors was making some statements recently and said, ‘We have only had five cases since the noise began. So, where is Covid-19?
One governor was also quoted as saying, ‘I saw people at National Identification Card area, no distancing, no nothing and how much more the church of God where there is order’.
There is no Covid-19 in National Population Card Centre. There is no social distancing in the market. There is nowhere to wash hands or wash nose and even the officials who are in charge are also buying things there.
What I think they don’t know is that the church has changed level. When the church launches an attack against anyone or system, that system crashes. Thank God we have prevailed.”
Thousand of worshipers witness this year service in his church, with a lot of them making new year vows and making new resolutions that will guide the through out the year 2021.
However. Bishop Oyedipo latest comment come amid the spread of COVID-19 pandemic second wave’s with a daily increase in the number of infected patients, in Nigeria.
