It is no longer coronavirus, it is anti-church virus - Oyedepo

Bishop David Oyedepo Bishop David Oyedepo

Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church has said that what is being suffered from is no longer coronavirus but anti-church virus.

Oyedepo stated this during a sermon while lamenting the continued closure of churches due to coronavirus while markets are left to operate.

Speaking, the clergyman said that no outbreak of the virus has been recorded in markets which disregard the guidelines given against the virus.

"No hand-washing, no nothing. Everyone is in the market running over each other everyday of the week and there is no outbreak from the market. But there is now outbreak from the church, perceived outbreak.

He further lamented the restriction placed on worship against the constitution.

"Now, freedom of worship is no longer a constitutional right. It is now determined by some individuals.

"It's a hard thing to kick against the priest.

"This is no longer coronavirus, at least in two states, Lagos and Ogun. It is now anti-church virus, clean and clear.

"There is nothing new under the sun. There was a time they said "no, Israel must not be free, and suddenly began to negotiate their liberty. I will let you go but you can't go far away. I will let you go but you can't go with your wife. You can go all the men only. Leave your wife, your children, your cattle here. Okay, you can take all of them away but leave your house and your cattle here".

"When God came down, the gods of Egypt and their armies were drowned in the red seas.

"That which is done is that which shall be done and there is nothing new under the sun. The thing which shall be, history is always repeating itself, is that which has been", he said.

He said that his church has recorded testimonies from coronavirus patients.

"Yes, the gods of this wold are behind, but there are human instruments that he engaged. Can anybody silence the church? No.

"I've never heard of anybody get healed in the market, but people get healed everyday in churches, real tangible healing. We have recorded 114 coronavirus healing testimonies. We got ten this week", he said.

The Clergyman revealed that videos of markets captured showed zero social distancing. He then wondered why people are prevented from going to church because of coronavirus.

"This is anti-church virus that we are fighting with. It is a grand design of the devil globally to see how they can silence the church.

Oyedepo revealed that the largest Christian gathering in this world is in Ogun State where his church's headquarters is.

With a prohibition on worship centers in the state, Oyedepo stated that his church won't seize fellowship.

"I decree a forceful vengeance to the opening of the doors to the churches across the nations of the world", he said.
