David Oyedepo (Bishop) who is the Founder of Winners Chapel, has kicked against the Federal government’s decision to uphold the ban on religious gatherings due to the Coronavirus pandemic .
In the gradual phasing of the lockdown this week, the Federal government placed a ban on social and religious gatherings as part of its measures to curb the spread of the novel Coronavirus, but markets have remained open.
However, speaking during the Covenant Hour of Prayer programme of the Church held at its headquarters in Otta, Ogun state, the clergyman said he suspects foul play and that ‘the voice of darkness is targeting the church, because the growth and expansion of the church is the greatest headache of the devil. ‘
According to Oyedepo, the church has recorded more healings than any other place yet they are closed, while hospitals that record huge deaths have been left opened.
“There is something wrong, for people to be allowed to be in the market for six hours and cannot be in church for two hours, it is an upside down way of looking at things.
Which is more orderly? The market or the church?
I can smell a rat. The Lord spoke to me on it strongly yesterday. I can smell a rat behind all this. It is how do we stop the church from exploding.
The voice of darkness are 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.
