Pastors yet to reopen churches were never believers -Oyakhilome

Pastor Chris Oyakhilome the founder of Christ Embassy says pastors who are yet to reopen their churches were never believers.

 

Proudlygospel understands that the Federal Government had, in March, ordered the closure of all public places, including worship centres across the country, as part of measures to curb the spread of the virus.

 

The Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 later allowed the reopening of worship centres in June, but some states in the South-West region, among others, did not permit the reopening of churches and mosques till August.

 

 

Places are worship resident in Lagos State were as well closed down due to the massive number of Covid-19 cases recorded during the lockdown.

 

However, the ban on reopening of churches had been lifted but some pastors still maintained that it’s not safe to do so.

 

This is a great concern because there were churches that were thought to be churches until recently,” Oyakhilome said in a sermon this week titled, ‘Your LoveWorld Specials – Season 2 Phase 4 Day 1’.
In his message aired via social media, the cleric added, “We find a lot of ministers who were thought to be advocates of the gospel advocating for shutting down the churches.
It is pressure like this that reveals what is a church and what is not. Do they really believe in God, the same God of the patriarchs in the Bible?
Speaking on immunity as a believe pastor Chris said :-

“I have laid hands on some of the most infectious people on earth and had no fear of being infected.

The word of God guarantees life in  Christ. When you get to that point where you are afraid of opening churches for fear of being infected, you have denied the faith. You never believed.

“You could be a preacher, but your fear and unbelief have put you in bondage. If Jesus is real and you have Him inside you, shouldn’t you be a healer of diseases? Should you be afraid?

The Bible says, ‘If they shall drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them’. Don’t you believe that? Do you question the validity of the words of Jesus?”

Pastor Oyakhilome also advised governments all over the world to verify information from global organisations amid the pandemic
