During a recent live broadcast, Bishop David Oyedepo of Winner’s Chapel prophesies that many new diseases and plagues are coming.
He thereby warns Christians and anyone who cares to listen to brace up.
He preached that redemption through Jesus Christ is the ticket to a sickness free life. The title of his message was “understanding our heritage of dominion over sickness and disease”.
He admonishes Christians to maximise the underlying benefits in their redemption through Jesus Christ.
In His words:
“Let me conclude by saying there are going to be many other waves of sickness and disease. The Bible notes that all the sicknesses that are not written in this book are coming.
“Deuteronomy 28:61 “Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the Lord bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.
“It is not new, there are new diseases, they will be coming, that is why you need to take cover on time before you become a victim.
“Take cover in redemption and understand your authority and power vested in the name; then begin to walk in dominion over sickness and disease! That shall be your portion in the name of Jesus.
“When Jesus sat with the disciples, not one was reported sick once. His presence just cleared them from all satanic assaults and he said “Lo, I am with you always. I will not leave you comfortless, I will come to you” – awesome promises, awesome life.
He, therefore, prayed that God will establish authority and one in the church will be a victim.
“His natural presence covered them, how much more His resurrected presence. Glory to God.”

Many popular Christian clerics and prophets agree with Bishop Oyedepo saying according to the Biblical world calendar, we are in the beginning of the end of the world, which will engender sicknesses, diseases, persecutions and wanton falsehood.
The Bible verses beneath have become the most popular since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic because they point to the ‘woes of the end time’.
Luke 21:11 “There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.”
Matthew 24:21-22 “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.”
Second Timothy 3:1-5 “But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.”
