We are up in arm against anti-church virus, not COVID-19, says Bishop Oyedepo

…confirms 114 COVID-19 healing testimonies

Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church, also known as Winners’ Chapel, has described the coronavirus pandemic as an anti-church virus.

Bishop Oyedepo had, not too long ago, slammed the Federal Government for reopening markets and leaving churches closed.

In his Sunday broadcast, Oyedepo said  COVID-19 was the strategy of the devil and his human agents to stop the growth of the church all over the world.

His words: ”Coronavirus is nothing but an anti-church virus. Now, freedom of worship is no longer a constitutional right. It is now determined by certain individuals.

“This is no longer coronavirus, at least, in two states- Lagos and Ogun, this is an anti-church virus. Caution must be exercised.”

“Can anybody silence the church? Never. I have never heard of anybody that got healed in the market but God heals people in the church day and night. We have recorded 114 coronavirus healing testimonies; we got 10 this week. And that is the place that is vulnerable and not the market.

“This is an anti-church virus we are fighting. It is the grand design of the devil globally to see how he can silence the church.

“Everybody is in the market running over one another every day of the week and there is no outbreak from the market but there is an outbreak from the church, perceived outbreak.”

Last week, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome had insisted that the government could not lock down the church because it was already written that God would build His church and the gates of hell would not prevail.
