Fire will fall if Churches are shut down again – Bishop Oyedepo

Bishop David Oyedepo Bishop David Oyedepo

Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church has said that fire will fall if churches are shut down again.

The clergyman wondered why occult houses were not shut down by government just as was done to churches.

Oyedepo who has been outspoken against the closure of churches due to COVID-19 made this known while delivering a sermon.

“I know the world will come to the point where we’ll say we are being fooled cause the devil that is deceiving the world, he has the capacity to deceive the whole world", he said.

“Thank God we are not fooled, Thank God we have not been fooled, Thank God he made us smarter than our enemies. Its only here they lay hands on Coronavirus patients and then walk free and heal them straight.”

“Could they have asked me in person, Should we shut down the church? Can anybody ask me that question? No.. they know where to ask, they know who to call. There are many pastors like that in this country, you can’t dare them. Did you close down the occult houses? the Ogboni houses? Did you close them down? Don’t you go there yourself?

“The next time anybody tries that, Fire will fall!”.

Oyedepo stated this a day after the Lagos State Government announced that worship centers can resume activities as from August 7.
