The founder and presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church A.K.A Winners’ Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has said Nigerians will soon discover they have been deceived in reaction to the coronavirus outbreak.
The cleric made the declaration during the church’s covenant hour of prayer on Saturday, where he disclosed that he’s not scared of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Speaking further, Bishop Oyedepo claimed that if anyone infected by the virus is brought to him, he will pray for such a person and the person will recover from the pandemic, noting that he won’t wear gloves before attending to the person because what he carries is eternal life, not human life.
In his words, “Can you imagine anyone bringing coronavirus patients to me and I won’t lay hands on him? Will I wear gloves to lay hands on them? I will lay hands on them; breathe into them; embrace them. What you carry is eternal life, it’s not human life. You should know that”.
The Winners Chapel General Overseer added that the virus is a plot by the devil to dehumanize humanity, adding that “they have been grossly deceived.”
“Someday, they will know that they have been deceived. They will all know that they have been grossly deceived.
“You’ve covered your mouth: do you cover it when you want to eat or there is no coronavirus when you are eating? I just look at it and say, ‘what is all these?’”
