Bishop David Oyedepo, the President and founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, popularly known as Winners Chapel, says Nigeria and the whole of Africa shall be delivered from the grip of economic hardship and oppression.
The clergyman made this declaration on Tuesday night while delivering his message at the Faith Tabernacle during the opening ceremony of the 20th Shiloh, an annual programme of the church.
Speaking on the topic, ‘Heralding the dominion era of the church,’ the clergyman said God would give so much authority to the church to stop bad politicians and bad policies.
His words: “Africa shall be delivered: Nigeria shall be delivered! Every occult power that holds sway on the continent of Africa shall be messed up this year!”
Bishop Oyedepo said there were too many deceptions in the world today, noting that the church is the pillar and ground of the truth.
The clergyman added that the authority which God would give to the church would be so renowned that it would attract envy.
According to him, “Authority shall be domiciled in the church in last day and if anybody is angry, it does not matter. Let all political gladiators hear this if the church says no, you are going nowhere.
“The time comes when the church says, you die, and you die; run mad and you will run mad.”
Bishop Oyedepo said the church will begin to teach people in every sector to the best way to do things to get the desired results.
Speaking further, the clergyman said the Covenant University which was established by the church had left behind many public varsities that were established many years before it came on board. He stressed that that was how it would be in many areas because God had decided to decorate the church with wisdom to excel.
Bishop Oyedepo said despite the lingering problem in the power sector, the Canaanland, the international headquarters of the LFC, had never suffered power outage since 1999.
