Bishop David OYEDEPO speaks on The Current Situation In Nigeria

By  | 

For many years now, satan has tried to stop the Church in Nigeria but he has failed.

There is an old Arabian proverb that says:
An Army of sheep led by a lion will defeat an Army of lions led by a sheep. What the Church in Nigeria has lacked for many years has been a strong authoritative voice. But things have changed!

The Executive Secretary of the perpetrators of this evil code was sacked last night and the code suspended. There has probably never been a time that such swift response and reversal was effected by government!

You cannot determine the CEO of a company where you are not a stakeholder! Priesthood is eternal; it has never had any government interference since God created the world.

For many years now, satan has tried to stop the Church of God in this country but has failed. The Church has now become unstoppable! It has also gone beyond threats. Only the Church can threaten the nation, not the other way around.

All the Mission Schools built by Nigerian Church Organizations in the last 20 years exceed those built by the Foreign Missionaries throughout the country’s history. Should the Church not be commended? Is it now a season to harass the Church?

I was before the LORD for 18 hours; no government official was there; the Mandate was delivered on a solo transaction between God and myself alone. I told the Pastors on Sunday: if you ever contemplate my retirement, you have first to show me the letter of appointment you issued to me!

I am a bona fide Nigerian citizen. There is no office in this nation that I am not qualified to occupy.

    Touch not my anointed and do my prophets no harm. Whosoever does will get instant judgement from God. God appoints his servants not the govt.

    The church is rising and taking back her authority as the Lord himself will revive his church. In days gone by leader of Nations run to the church for prayers and direction not the other way round.

    Let the church wake up and call on God put emphasis on seeking God first and his righteousness. The power to rule is given to the church. Halleluyah !!!

    Isaiah 9;6. A son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; note” not Him resting on the government shoulders ( the government shld come to Him for help < not Him asking for help from the so called government.And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. 7 There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore.No Nigeria government "CAN" stop Bishop David. if they try, one by one they start dropping down. that's all for now. God bless

    When evil thrives its because righteousness decides to be patient. But when the patience of righteousness is over judgement sets in to undo the reign of evil. This is the Nigerian senerio.

    Power has changed hands, God is at work but certain person have not realise this bcos they are spiritualy blind.

    The wicked will not control the affairs of this nation anymore.

    We need more of Papa Oyedepo among the Christian leaders to authoritatively call Fire of God upon all the evil leaders in this country in order for this country to be at Peace. More of God’s grace upon you my Daddy. Anyone who dares to touch you will go down for you IJN.

    No weapon fashioned against the righteous shall ever prosper,whatever you didn’t institute you cannot remove so therfore because the government has no hand in the enthronment of papa the have no right whatsoever to ask you papa to retire, of cause this is not federal appointment where they have right to terminate the appointment, this is God’s appointment if they are nolonger confortable with it they should invite God to terminate your leadership. God bless you papa and grant you more wisdom and knowledge to always know what to answer all these terminators of God’s elect.

    it has been my earnest prayer that churches stand together as one body, one voice and , one God. unitted we stand in this endtime. we should be the light of the world that we are created to be, no darkness can stand the authority of life. let not shy away or pretend not to aware of the evil rivers flowing to swallow christian and churches in nigeria. thank for the new ptesident of america who is willing to stand with us to dry up the evil flow. we need lion to lead the sheep and Bishop Oyedepo should lead the churches in nigeria as his new commission by God.

      All we need is to stand firm as one, we should not entertain the difference in denominational disparity, let the pain of one become the pain of all, we are all one in Christ and united we atand, divided we fall.. I have long for a moment of oneness as it is happening now, indeed I love d unity.. God bless this commission, God bless PFN. Amen

    We actually don’t have a church yet in Nigeria.,I mean the real,true body of Christ .What we have is purely ,congregation of people who are seeking their own.The true body of Christ will live,think,pray and behave like Jesus did.And until we seek to be like HIM,we shall keep wallowing in the spiritual mud prepared by ‘men of God’ whose Christianity,can’t ENDURE the CROSS like Jesus,(Heb 12:2)but desire to always ENJOY the CROSS. If the church shelf the cross of Jesus,she will suffer persecutions from satan.

    When God speaks,man listens. God commissioned him to deliver the world from all oppressions of the devil. I am sure, when the oppressions have ended, God is the one ti determine what next, Not Nigeria government. I am not surprised that the law could nit stayed than hours before it was anulled.

    There is no place in the Bible that you,ll find a wretched and poverty stricken prophet or apostles of God. God has made provisions for their needs and satisfies them with good things. It may be through God sent people or direct divine provision. Jesus Christ never lacks but has in abudance. The widow of Zarepath gave all she has for prophet Eli and never lacks again. So you should not expect any man of God to beg for anything but should have them in abudant according to His wealth and riches. Jesus Christ was the richest and so his children must not want.

    Halleluya,CHRIST the WINNER wins again, since the reconfiguration of things, the enemies of CHRIST,Christians and the entire Household of CHRIST, have read handwriting on the wall and discover that the INFINITE GOD rules in the affairs of man. therefore their rantings suffices to mean nothing. No man can Challenge GOD in any battle and come out strong and sound. Papa, you are the WINNER, You have WON . NO satanist can stop or quench the light we have in CHRIST JESUS for WE are the LIGHT of this dark world

Because we are the redeemed of the lord and as covenant children, we are unshakable… Papa u are a wise man, n it is in the scripture, wisdom does not dwell in unrighteousness.

    I HONOUR YOU ALL, AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL. God is good. They say to Jesus he is the prince of the devil but he continue his good work and finished it. It’s written my people perish for lack of knowledge. If men don’t fear Jesus and says that, it must be said to you. Jesus said ALL MEN WILL HATE YOU FOR MY SAKE. Jesus has already says it. You can defend your pastor anywhere any time because its your duty.And the bible says because they have rejected knowledge, l will also reject thee. If you have a friend against MEN OF GOD please warn them because God is about to pour his anger upon them. For they are God’s mouth piece. Just think about it and be transformed. Remain blessed.

    God remains on the throne forever and ever. Satan has failed, he has been defeated not that he is going to fail. So as we speak to God so will He do. We are gods here on earth and as we declare He (God) will make happen. The government has no say in the affairs of the church, Jesus Christ does, He is the head of the church. Ride on Papa, say it. Thank You Jesus.

    The Moslems are trying to Islamize Nigeria because Christians are not Christianizing Nigeria. How did the white man evangelize Nigeria through the CMS, RCM, SIM, Methodist, Baptist and other agencies? By building schools and hospitals and offering their services at subsidized rates. Some years ago, my mother needed eye surgery to remove a cataract. We brought her to Lagos and were informed by a consultant at Nigerian Ports Authority Clinic that the best eye hospital in Nigeria is the ECWA Missionary Eye Hospital in Kano. I took my mum there and met with highly qualified expatriates working right in the heart of Kano. The Chief Medical Director, Dr. Kiru had more degrees than a thermometer, the equipment was the best available in the country; despite the hustle and bustle of the city, the atmosphere within the hospital premises was serene. A female, German surgeon (Dr. Bahge) operated on my mum and she was discharged 4 days after she was admitted. The whole operation including tests, private ward with 2 beds and feeding cost N54,000 (Instead of N200,000 in the cheapest hospital in Lagos). Further tests later showed that my mum’s eyes were like that of a 40-year old (she was in her seventies). Three years ago, a friend and I met an 18-year old girl who had run away from home, soon after she had a baby for her 20-year old boyfriend; both had absolutely no source of income. Where do we take them to? Someone told me about Ozanam house – a home set up by the Roman Catholic Church just for cases like this. After narrating the story to Rev. Sister Stella (the Head of the place), she said: “go and bring them”. The girl, her boyfriend and the baby were kept in the center till her mother was located and all three were sent back home to Abuja – all expenses paid by the center. What do the Pentecostal Churches offer today, what acts of love or kindness do you receive from the average Nigerian church, what amenities are provided by the Nigerian Church whose income was estimated at 3 Trillion Naira in 2014 (when the whole Nation budgeted 4 Trillion)? We build mega auditoriums to seat crowds mainly made up of miracle seekers and those trying to assuage their curiosity; we offer prayers mostly for prosperity and breakthrough, we give prophecies about who is standing in the way of your success and how he or she must be removed by violent prayers. In fact, our enemies, spiritual or physical, must “die by fire”. Meanwhile a pastor here in Ojodu, Lagos owns 45 private cars in the midst of abject poverty. Now there is this satanic competition to know who owns more aircrafts than the other in Nigeria. Most Church members can not afford the fees charged by schools owned by the Churches where they worship. A woman had a baby through normal delivery in a hospital owned by the Church where she worships here in Ojodu, Lagos; the bill-N150,000. It is “Haram” (forbidden) for a Moslem to take interest on a loan given to another Moslem but a pastor I know was charged 20% interest PER MONTH on a loan given to him by a fellow pastor. By the 6th month, the interest had exceeded the principal sum. Ok, let’s keep sending WhatsApp messages asking for prayers against Moslems who are aggressively promoting their religion using any means necessary while we focus on getting as many people to our breakthrough programs as we can (not minding whether they understand the rudiments of Christianity). If we get enough people to pray through WhatsApp, one day God will look down from Heaven and have mercy on our prayers and force every Moslem (including Buhari and El-Rufai) to either become a Christian or die by fire, meanwhile count me out of those prayers. Discipleship Mission is on a Mission, Mission of Love and Power.

      My friend, you have spoken so well in your piece and it’s fact-covered!
      Pentecostal Churches aren’t helping. Rather they build schools and companies way too expensive for the masses to operate.. Yet cage them in their religious believes and expect people to obey freely…

      I never was a good giver until my service year.
      I got down to Ikom in Cross River and went in search of a church, I at last settled in one… From series of sermons, we got to discover purposes, the Pastor was just doing his best, he would purchase all that is needed in church, pay bills of some church staff… All alone. Until one day when a member asked and pleaded that the members should be given opportunity to get involved…
      I used to give Maximum of 50 Naira as offering before then, my giving life changed without anyone preaching the one-sided messages I had always heard!
      It is not really supposed yo be in the preachings, do them!
      Christ showed examples!
      Apostolic Ministries showed!
      The Catholic did!
      Anglican performed!

      Excuse me Pentecostal! What have you done but build Universities with fees as high as N800,000, Secondary Schools about 120,000… Among others…

      Lest I forget, the ones that performed weren’t even exposed to the amount of tithe and offerings you are today!

      Christianise by showing! Thank you!

    Some of the comments here show that some Christians are like foot ball fans. A good fan cheers up the team even if the team is not doing well. Lo and behold beloveth, it is better you open the Bible and read it with understanding, dont be deceived by fake prophecies. Some members are suffering before they can afford offering and tithe, some are sleeping under the bridge but this does not concern some G.Os. All they know and preach is : give and it shall be given unto you, if they see you trekking on the road they pretend unconcerned.
