The General overseer of Christ Embassy church, Chris Oyakhilome has called out pastors who are in support of church closure, stating they are fake and have collected bribe.
Following the Federal Government rule which imposed a ban on religious gathering due to the coronavirus pandemic, most churches have been under lock and key, and this doesn’t sit well with Pastor Chris.
In a video trending on social media, the Love world founder, was seen expressing his disappointment with some clergymen who, according to him were in attendance in a meeting with the government, where the government seek their opinion ahead of the Lockdown, rather than ask for a chance for them to pray against the disease, they concurred on church closure.
Pastor Chris further stated that these pastors do not truly represent the Lord, alleging that they are greedy men, for agreeing to the church closure, due to the compensation they had received from the government.
“In different cities, countries, states, before the government went ahead with the lockdown, they held meetings with pastors, leaders of churches. Why did the pastors and leaders not say give us a few days to go and pray? Because they were not prayerful before.
Hearing such a thing as Ministers of God and you are called for such a meeting, you couldn’t say give us a few days and you would call the Ministers and say this is what we just heard from the government authorities and we need to pray. We have asked them to give us three days. Then you would have seen the hand of God.
He further stressed that;
But you weren’t thinking about the father’s house. Do you know what it is for you to shut down the congregations of the lord? Do you know what that means? It never meant anything to you, that is why. And there were pastors and Ministers that were sending strong warnings to others not to venture entering the church because of the virus. This is because Christ has never truly being your lord. You have been the master of your life. You have never truly known him.”
He also threw light on the issue of vaccination against the coronavirus, added that soon the government will setup test centers in churches and they will be probably called ‘Covid-19 compliant churches’ .
He asked if anyone ever wonder or asked what is being used as test kits and why it can show if a patient is positive or negative, adding that has anyone bothered to questions, on the fact that a virus which is still undergoing study, and yet a vaccine is already stipulated to be ready in the month of July.
