NB: the Federal Government had on Monday lifted the ban on Churches and Mosques across the country.
Nevertheless, on reacting to the directive, Prophet T.B. Joshua stated that despite the announcement from the government, he will only open his own church when he hears from God to do so. According to the pastor, he received a revelation from God about the church’s initial closure and won’t reopen until he receives express instruction to do so.
The same God we are waiting to hear from on when to reopen when things will go back to normal as usual,TB Joshua said in a statement released to his official social media channels.
More so, pastor Sam Adeyemi had on numerous occasions backed the lockdown of religious places to curb the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). In a statement he signed and released to newsmen, Primate Ayodele said it was impossible for God to request that his house be closed down due to a virus that is powerless in God’s presence.
Ayodele said: he is disappointed in pastors like TB Joshua, Sam Adeyemi and others who say they are waiting on God to tell them when to open churches, It’s a lie, God can’t say you should shut the church down, even if you claimed to have seen a vision, you need to ask for preventive measures. TB Joshua said he has seen it before that churches were asked to be closed. God can never ask anyone to stop his work but pastors are using COVID-19 to lie. Everyone is waiting for God’s guidance truly but, some of them are lying about it. God will definite punish pastors using his name to lie during this period.
