The founder of Believers Love World, also known as Christ Embassy Church, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has revealed that God wanted churches to be shut down amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Oyakhilome while making the revelation stated that God wanted man to reverence him, hence, he allowed churches to be shut down.
Oyakhilome, while addressing his followers said: “What the Lord expects us to do: There was a time the Church didn’t have knowledge of anything going on.
“I believe why God allowed the Churches to be shut down was because God wanted to get our attention.
“Usually there should be a separation of Church and State. But different leaders started making rules about wearing masks before we worship.”
Recall that the Nigerian government had ordered the closing down of churches and other worship centres due to COVID-19 outbreak, but was later lifted in June across the country by President Muhammadu Buhari.
