The founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo has warned that Nigeria’s economy will collapse if the investments of God’s people are removed.
Naija News reports that the popular clergyman stated this during a sermon on Sunday at the Church’s Canaan Land in Ogun, Southwest Nigeria.
Oyedepo said “You know where the Church was in Nigeria, in the 70s, in the early 80s? It was a pitiable assembly of people. That painful proverb, “as poor as Church rat”, was a true description of the Church. You could have a Church building going on for 20 years.
“I saw one in my place. 20 years without completion. All the powerful ministries were renting shops and sheds, in fact they called us mushroom churches. You know mushroom grows today and disappears tomorrow.
“But when that move came and people’s hearts began to pant after God, the story of men began to change. Remove the products of revival from Nigeria economy…, there is nothing remaining.
“Let me say this and I am saying this very boldly: The only thing remaining in Nigeria today are the investments of God’s people. The only one! You know the other people are busy killing themselves. No plan, no purpose, no forward looking.”
According to Oyedepo, “Check all the employment of labour today in this country, authentic, not manipulated stuff. They are believers. Those are products of a revival. Unleashing financial fortune to advance His Kingdom.
“That is why your Church will be building rural churches and at the same time building the Ark and building every other thing that is coming around. Don’t miss your place in this thing.”
