Why I want to become Nigeria’s President – Oyedepo spills.

Advertisements

While speakin on Sunday the man of God vowed that he would consider it a demotion if invited to become Nigeria’s president.

Oyedepo, during his sermon, said God specifically, in 1984 asked him if he was interested in going top and that he answered in the affirmative. He said God told him,

“Then whatever I tell you to do, do it. Don’t run around: whatever I tell you to do, do it. Don’t muse about: whatever I tell you to do. Don’t do what they do: do what I tell you to do. “1984! Do you know that’s what led me to say,

“I will consider it a demotion…” and I’m saying it again, some are very upset about it, that’s their problem.“I will consider it a demotion if I were invited to be the President of this great country. It’s a great country, it’s a great honour for anyone to be President but that’s not where I belong. I belong to ‘above all nations,” he said.

According to Oyedepo: “Angry or happy, there are more than 100 nations now hooked on to this service; and we all belong there together.

That’s where we belong. Some can see it, others can’t see it: They say, “I don’t believe it, I just need food, water and eat, drink and die. I don’t need above all nations.”“I’ve said it before, “the highest concentration of giants in this generation will emerge from this platform.”If you are one of them, let me hear your loudest Amen.

The same way, this Church did not need any human help to get to where we are, you won’t bow to any devil to scale any height in your life.“Watch, if I’m the one to lift you, I can only take you to where my hand can reach. Imagine the everlasting arm of Jesus, He picks you up, scaling everlasting heights. I can’t get you there.

Stella Immanuel’s COVID-19 cure: What Oyedepo has to say

Advertisements

The presiding pastor of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo has said that coronavirus has a cured and that the church has been healing patients weekly.

The clergyman stated this in reaction to the viral video of Stella Immanuel who said hydroxychloroquine helped her cure hundreds of coronavirus patient.

Oyedepo also cried out that social media is censoring posts which claim that coronavirus has a cure.

“I watched something yesterday on the Frontline Doctors in the US. It’s a noise from hell and there is nothing hidden that is not known by God. Nothing!

“Every positive report contrary to that demonic propaganda is doused, it is not allowed to have expression because of the evil machinations of the perpetrators.

“Now, they will know that God’s greatest interest on the earth are the souls of men and everyone that is out to destroy them, my God will destroy them,” he said.

He continued: “it’s like fever. There is nothing there, it’s like fever! Evil intentions, evil scheming. What is coronavirus?

“We have found a cure” – they say it is not relevant. They got it off YouTube, got it off all the various platforms just to keep their propaganda going. But I can tell you this, God is in the midst of His people.

“Everyone that is after the souls of men to destroy them, they shall all be destroyed in the name of Jesus Christ.

Whatever they have as intention is falling on their heads, on their families, their generations in the name of Jesus!

If somebody comes out and say we have treated 350 people with this drug and none died, they say, “No, that’s not necessary.”

“So, what’s necessary? To kill them is necessary or to force your demonic vaccines on human race? Who knows what you have inside it? To turn human beings to properties for wealth sake, for political reasons?

“The same way Pharaoh perished because he won’t let people go, these evil men will disappear into shame and ignominy, wherever they may be and whatever forces are behind them. It’s mere noise. The Bible calls it noisome pestilence. It just came with noise, zero. Ebola came, we didn’t shut down.

“Zero. It didn’t make the first 20 of the worst viruses that visited the earth, so what’s the noise about? Well, the world will discover that they have been deceived,” he added.

No tithe, no prosperity – Oyedepo | See Reactions

Advertisements

Living Faith Bishop, David Oyedepo has taken to his Twitter page to say that people who fail to pay their tithe are “under a financial curse” and can never prosper.

Oyedepo tweeted: “Tithing is an inescapable covenant obligation. Prosperity not just wealth is impossible without tithing, because when you’re not paying your tithe, you’re under a financial curse. #Tithe #Breakinglimits.”

A PhD candidate at Edinburgh University disagreed with Oyedepo, writing: “Tithing cannot create wealth! Wealth creation occurs when you deploy capital to create value. When X gives 1/10 of his earnings to your church, there’s no production or investment, thus he has not created value, but only enriched you. Tithing is a church sponsored ponzi scheme..”

The tweet has caused mixed reactions from Twitter users.

N1.4bn land suit: Court dissolve Oyedepo Church’s application

Advertisements

A High Court sitting in Ota, Ogun State has okayed a lawsuit laying claim to 13 acres out of a total of 508,996 acres of land belonging to the Registered Trustees of the World Mission Agency Inc, popularly known as Winners’ Chapel International, and its founder, Bishop David Oyedepo.

The court, in a June 16, 2020, ruling by Justice Olugboyega Ogunfowora, disagreed with Winners’ Chapel and Oyedepo that the suit was status barred

The claimants in the suit – Monsuru Ogunseye, Alani Ogunseye, Muinatu Ogunseye and Rasheed Dada – are praying the court to hold that 13 acres out of Winners’ Chapel land belong to them by virtue of a July 13, 2017, judgment of the Court of Appeal.

Advertisements

They want the court to order the church to pay them N1.4bn “being the current market value of the 13 acres of land on the basis of a valuation report prepared by Lekan Akinwunmi & Co, a firm of estate surveyors and valuers.”

They also prayed that the court should compel the church to pay them N60m with interest, “being the assessed value of the occupation and use of their land by the defendants from 1998 to 2018 and thereafter at a pro-rated N3m per annum, among others.”

But the church and Oyedepo urged the court to dismiss the suit for being statute barred.

Advertisements

“Section 6(2) of the Limitation Law of Ogun State, 2006, expressly provides that actions of this nature seeking recovery and possession of land must be instituted within 12 years when the cause of action arose,” they argued.

However, the court upheld the argument of the claimants that the cause of action only arose in 2017 and not 1998 as contended by the church and thus it was not statute barred.

The judge ruled, “I agree with the claimants that the cause of action in this suit arose from July 13, 2017, when the Court of Appeal gave its judgment, and not from 1998 as posited by the defendants/applicants in their application and the supporting documents.

“This application, accordingly, lacks merit and is dismissed with costs assessed at N50,000.”

COVID-19: Oyedepo blast FG, fault continuous church ban.

Advertisements

The Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church International, popularly known as Winners’ Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, yesterday, condemned the continuous closure of churches, saying that COVID-19 has suddenly become an anti-church virus.

The cleric, in a sermon tagged “Breaking Invisible Barrier,” wondered why schools are closed because of the virus, but children go to the markets hawking and helping their parents.

He wondered why places, where healings take place (the churches), are shut but markets, where diseases could easily be spread, are opened. Oyedepo, therefore, noted that there were unseen forces behind the closure of the churches and Christians must rise to pray.

He said: “What they called coronavirus has suddenly become anti-church virus. The market places are rocking, people are running over themselves, physical distancing is zero, hand washing is zero, yet, coronavirus doesn’t go there; it only goes to the churches.

“I know that the gods of the land are behind this; some merchants of evil are behind this. But it is a hard thing for any man, no matter the backing he may have, to kick against the bricks. The church where healing takes place around the world is shut down and the market places where diseases are easily spread is opened. There are some states in Nigeria that have opened activities some weeks ago, and there are no high cases recorded. Even one state in the North that has the worst case has opened up a long time ago.

“This is an anti-church virus and the God of the church of Christ neither sleeps nor slumber. As of today, we have 114 clear cases of coronavirus healing testimony and there are many churches where healings take place by the word of God and not diabolical means.”
Is that where to shut down?”

COVID-19: No disagreement on churches closure – Oyemade said amid Oyedepo, Oyakhilome’s feud.

Advertisements

The Senior Pastor of The Covenant Nation Poju Oyemade has disclaimed widespread media reports stating that he disagreed with prominent pastors Chris Oyakhilome and Bishop David Oyedepo.

“My attention has been drawn to articles going around some websites that an article I wrote on how one can remain effective during these times was written in response to Bishop Oyedepo’s statement on the closure of churches. That assumption/inference is simply incorrect,” Oyemade said in a statement on Saturday.

Pastor Oyakhilome and Bishop Oyedepo had recently spoke against the continuous closure of churches as the coronavirus pandemic lingers saying it was against the expansion of the church.

Advertisements

However, Oyemade in a post on his Instagram page said that the closure of churches does not in any way stop the Holy Spirit from working, hence, it was nothing against the church expansion.

Several news reports inferred that Oyemade’s post showed a “disagreement” with Pastor Oyakhilome and Bishop Oyedepo.

But Oyemade’s post from which the news reports were written came 48 hours before Oyedepo’s comment.

Advertisements

“Facts can easily be verified by checking time-lines. My article was written before Bishop Oyedepo spoke. I do understand that certain narratives drive traffic to websites and sowing seeds of division does attract attention.

“I will like to make it clear and on record that my article was written 48 hours before he spoke. In the article, I did emphasise that criticising other ministries and churches’ operations is not a sign of strength on one’s part, so the article contradicts the conclusions being inferred”, Oyemade said.

Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church Worldwide has criticized the continued closure of churches due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Federal Government ordered against social gathering a to help curb the spread of coronavirus which now has over 2000 confirmed cases in Nigeria.

The decision affects churches and mosques which can contain over 50 people gathered for service.

“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 for looking at things.
Which one is more orderly? The market or the church?

“I can smell a rat. The Lord spoke to me on it strongly on it 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.
The devil and his agents shall surely pay for this.

“I don’t know what hospital that records the kind of healings that the church of God records. And now hospitals where people die everyday is open but the church is closed.” the Bishop stated.

As a prophet, I can tell you that Buhari’s days are numbered – Nigerian Bishop, Oyedepo.


The Presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has said the days of President Muhammadu Buhari are numbered in Nigeria

Oyedepo, lamenting the state of the nation, described Buhari as a bad leader, adding that his government is the worst in the history of Nigeria.


He made the statement on Sunday while delivering a sermon during the second service of the church at the Faith Tabernacle, Ota, Ogun State.

According to him, Buhari’s government had no direction and is like a curse on Nigeria.


“In my view you are bad and you shouldn’t be a leader. I have the right to say so. As far as I am concerned, I am a true born and thoroughly-bred Nigerian, an intelligent one.

“In my view, this is the worst thing that has happened to Nigeria, this government. It is the worst and in fact, it is like a curse.


“I led the first prayer and fasting for Nigeria in 1979, that tells you I am not a baby in the affairs of Nigeria.

“This is the worst government, a government with no direction. Their days are numbered. I can tell you as a prophet that their days are numbered.”


Oyedepo also made reference to the hate speech bill being sponsored by Senator Sabi Abdullahi

He went further to describe the bill as the most ridiculous and stupid bill anyone could think of.


The cleric queried the strategy of the government to criminalise hate speech while giving freedom to those who kill others

Oyedepo added, “The government in this country is making a draconian law – hate speech. They said if you speak hatefully, you have committed murder. Out of someone who says I will kill you and the one who kills, who has committed a crime? I don’t understand which kind of animal farm we live in.

“I said stop stepping on my toes and you said that is hate speech but somebody kills and he is walking free on the streets.

“This is the most stupid and nonsensical ideal anybody can think of.”

COVID-19: Church is made up of both literates and illiterates – Oyedepo explain why he held service despite ban.


Bishop David Oyedepo has revealed why a fully packed service was held at its headquarters, despite a ban on public gathering of 50 people in Ogun State.

In a statement released by Steve Ogah, special assistant to Oyedepo who is the founder of the church, the church stressed that its fully packed service on Sunday was devoted entirely to sensitizing and mobilizing its members against the dangers of coronavirus (COVID-19).


It was further gathered that Bishop Oyedepo has since engaged Ogun State Government at the highest level to clarify the issue and any misgivings and also reiterate the full support of the church for the State Government’s efforts to ensure public safety, towards curtailing the spread of this deadly virus.


The statement reads;

“It has become necessary to issue this statement to clarify issues surrounding why Faith Tabernacle, Canaanland, the International Headquarters of Living Faith Church in Ogun State, held church service on Sunday, although with less than half of her regular worshippers.


For the avoidance of doubt, as stakeholders and as a responsible organization, Living Faith Church fully supports and encourages compliance with all initiatives of the government to combat the spread of this dreaded virus.

However, information has to be strategically disseminated to the grassroots, noting that the Church is a family and not an industry, it is for this reason that enlightenment and sensitization from the Church platform is a most effective way to get people involved in playing their part in terms of prayers and intercessions and not just staying away from Church without knowing what to do.


As we all know, the Church is made up of both literate and illiterate congregants; many are not in touch with any of the modern platforms of communication and this is what we did yesterday. Indeed, the service was devoted entirely to sensitizing and mobilizing members of the Church regarding the danger of this deadly virus and the need to comply with government directives.

The Bishop has since engaged Ogun State Government at the highest level to clarify this issue and any misgivings and reiterated the full support of the church for the State Government’s efforts to ensure public safety, towards curtailing the spread of this deadly virus. He appreciates the opportunity of direct engagement and the understanding of the government.

Cooperation to safeguard public safety is not just a moral obligation or civic responsibility; the church also considers it a spiritual duty.

The Church shall continue to engage all necessary logistics to ensure compliance with government directives and continue to pray for speedy divine intervention to stem this deadly virus.”

COVID-19: Oyedepo react to closure of schools, churches.

...CAN order churches not to send back members

coronavirus cure would be found this week – Bishop Oyedepo


Founder of Living Faith Church a.k.a Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo has reacted to some state governors’ decision to close schools due to the coronavirus pandemic.


Speaking at a fully-packed service at Canaanland Ota, despite a ban on religious gatherings of more than 50 people in Ogun State due to outbreak of Coronavirus, Oyedepo stated that the only disease that has no cure is hunger.


He said;

“May God help our policy makers to make the right decision in finding solution to this scourge called Coronavirus.


“Now children are out of school, to go back to that crowd. Would they not be more secured in school where they are only 20 in class? They will now go to help their mama, to sell pepper in the market where you contact about 500,000 people a day in big cities. Everybody is trying to find solutions, may we find the right solution.

“May God help our leaders to make the right decision in search of solution to this pandemic.”


Oyedepo also disclosed that his church is working on programmes to enable localised congregation instead of mass gatherings on service days.

“What we are doing is to ensure that the plague doesn’t spread. This has never happened in my lifetime that nations are shutting their doors against each other.


“The world is at war with an invisible enemy and we must pray. Schools are being shut down, people are entering buses where everyone is breathing on everyone, every market in Africa is an open market. Can we test everybody taking a bus? Only God can rescue the world at this time.

“We are a law abiding congregation and must follow measures being put in place to contain the spread.”


He told his members that the cure for the deadly virus will be out soon and nations shall rejoice again.


Oyedepo added;

“Only the help of God can save Nigeria and Africa in a while from this Pandemic.


“Plagues cannot stop us. Coronavirus cannot stop God’s children, but I assure you that the solution will be found this week.

“Strategies are being developed on how to manage this in respect to our worship programs. We will come up with specific programs during the week that will be communicated to everyone.

“Our Zonal positions may have to be enlarged to accommodate a lot of people.”

Following the criticism that trailed the fully-packed church service, David Oyedepo’s Ministries International shared a memo in which CAN instructed churches not to send back members who attend services today.

{Photo} Winners chapel member admitted in hospital after alleged slap from Oyedepo.


A member of the Living Faith Church (a.k.a Winners Chapel), Nosa Aigbogun has found himself at the hospital after being slapped by Pastor Gideon Oyedepo.

Aigbogun attends Uwasota branch of the church in Benin, Edo state.


Pastor Gideon Oyedepo is the resident pastor and younger brother of the G.O, Bishop David Oyedepo.

DailyPost reports that the Pastor Gideon Oyedepo was accused of constantly harassing and assaulting members of his branch, slapping them at will.


Aigbogun, who is recuperating at a medical facility in Benin, said he was the latest to be slapped by the Pastor.

He said since he was transferred to their branch as resident pastor, the younger Oyedepo has enthroned himself as emperor and has become a problem to members of the church.


He appealed to the founder of the church, Bishop Oyedepo, to rescue them from further beatings from his younger brother.

“I want concerned authorities to rescue us from him, we have received enough slaps. We are begging his elder brother, Bishop David Oyedepo, to save us from the overnight emperor before is too late.


Since his arrival at our branch, he has slapped two persons and he keeps saying nobody can do him anything. He has turned the branch to something else.

They called for unity meeting on Sunday and I was part of those that attended. All of a sudden, he just turned to me and started calling me devil, idiot.


Before you know it, he just slapped me and he said I cannot do him anything and that he has been planing to deal with some of us in the church. His P.A. joined him.

On his instruction, his P.A. went and brought soldiers who they said were from Supply and Transport (S&T) Barracks. They pounced on me, rough-handled me and beat the hell out of me,” he said.

Aigbogun, who said he had reported the case at Okhoro Police Station, said all he wants is justice.

Other members of the church told journalists that Gideon Oyedepo threaten that should his elder brother who owns the church act on complaints of members and perhaps drop him, he will form a white garment church of his own.

Examine your head, you have no right to crucify anybody – Yekini Nabena slam Oyedepo.


The All Progressives Congress, APC, on Monday lambasted Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church for prophesying that President Muhammadu Buhari’s days are numbered.

Speaking, APC’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena asked that the bishops head be examined, suggesting that the Winners chapel founder has not contributed anything to Nigeria.

Recall that Oyedepo had told his members that Buhari’s government was the worst in Nigeria’s history and a curse to the nation.

Addressing his members during Sunday service, Oyedepo had further stated that Buhari’s days were numbered because the current government has no direction for Nigeria as a whole.

Reacting, Nabena maintained that the General Overseer of Living Faith Church has no right to make such remarks.

According to Nabena: “What has he contributed to Nigeria, Oyedepo has no right to crucify or tell anybody that their time has come to an end.

“He has no right, he should examine his own head what has he given back to the community. Despite the billions of naira and dollars, Nigerians have contributed through offerings to him what has he given back to the community?

“What has he contributed to the country? So he is not in a position to tell Nigerians what to do because they voted for Buhari so he has no right”

In another post, Oyedepo stated that one can be a Christian and still be in lack. This he says is because the person is failing to see what God is saying.

“God is no respecter of any person but of His Word. It is very possible to be a Christian and live in lack and want. Until you see what God is saying, you remain the same. God is no respecter of persons, He only respects faith in His Word”, he added.

We own Nigeria too – Bishop Oyedepo says his Church members can also be president


David Oyedepo, presiding bishop of the Living Faith Worldwide, says over 10,000 members of his church are qualified to be president of Nigeria.

The 65-year-old clergyman disclosed this while speaking against citizens who “claim the nation” as their own during his recent church service.


According to him, there are many people in his church who have the ability and experience it takes to lead Nigeria, only that they’re not given a chance.

“We’re not strangers. We’re citizens of this country. There are more than ten thousand people in this church that qualify to be president by virtue of capacity, experience,” the clergyman said.

“…what have you? How dare you claim you own the nation. Cursed be that thought! We own this nation together. I’m not an adopted citizen. I’m born, bred, and original like many others.”

Oyedepo recently made headlines after a series of news reports wrongly claimed that the US embassy denied him a visa renewal after he failed to meet the requirements for the document.

He was also in the news after dismissing an undisclosed number of officials for allegedly conniving to “loot millions” from his church’s treasury.

This had come after the clergyman was rumoured to have approved N650 million for road repairs in Ogun state in a move that caused intense hysteria among Nigerians on social media.
