“I know this is from somebody that woke up from the wrong side of the bed. PLEASE NOTE, This is a warning from the Lord, SO I CAN BE FREE FROM YOUR BLOOD…THIS WILL NEVER WORK. THE CHURCH RUNS ON A PATTERN DELIVERED BY GOD…”
The above and more were part of the prophetic warnings Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Tabernacle issued to President Muhammadu Buhari over the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) amendment, which has been passed into law.
This new amendment gives government the right to appoint or remove board of trustees for churches without recourse to a court of law.
This is coming after President Muhammadu Buhari signed the revised Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) bill 2020 into law on Aug 7.
In one of preachings at Faith Tabernacle at Ota, Bishop Oyedepo vehemently declared it was wrong for any government to meddle in the affairs of the church.
Bishop Oyedepo described the document as undemocratic asking if it is right to set a non-Christian to oversee church affairs. He said the move was demonic and satanic.
He argued that it was even more suspicious that the power to remove board of trustees for churches could not be challenged in a court of law.
Meanwhile, Bishop Oyedepo’s words have received multiple interpretations globally especially among Nigerians. One of the most popular schools of thoughts on the fiery Bishop’s words says he warned President Buhari to repent so that God will not judge him (Bishop Oyedepo) for not warning President Buhari when he erred.
Another school of thought says the Bishop who brands himself as a prophet to the nations meant President Buhari may die if he does not repent while others claim he was just doing his work as a prophet, if his utterances were truly inspired by God.
Bishop David Oyedepo is one of the most vocal Nigerian men of God who has consistently take the government to the cleaners over issues he believes are not scriptural.
However, some Nigerians criticise him for being partisan claiming he supports one of the most political parties in the country – a claim which he denied.
