Prophet TB Joshua, founder of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) has declared that he is waiting for instructions from God before re-opening his church for physical worship.
The popular cleric made the declaration after the Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced that places of worship in the state can re-open as from August 7.
Governor Sanwo-Olu said, “Places of worship in Lagos will now be opened from Friday, the 7th of August for our Muslim worshippers, and on Sunday, the 9th of August for our Christian worshippers.”
While commending the decision of the Lagos State government to re-open places of worship for physical gatherings, Prophet Joshua however said until he gets instruction from God, he won’t be reopening his church.
Speaking via SCOAN’s Emmanuel TV, the preacher said: “Good morning and win today! Following the announcement that church services will resume in Lagos on August 9th, 2020 – that is, this coming Sunday – I wish to commend the authorities for their efforts so far.
“However, having heard from the authorities, we are now waiting to hear from God.
“Please be assured that as soon as we hear from God, we will inform you when our services will resume. Emmanuel – God is with us,” he said.
