Nigerian Pastor Oyemade Hits Out at Bishop Oyedepo and Pastor Chris – ‘Closing the Church Does Not Stop the Holy Spirit’


Pastor Poju Oyemade, senior pastor of the Covenant Christian Centre in Lagos, has hit out at his fellow pastors, Chris Oyakhilome and David Oyedepo, for complaining over the closure of churches.

According to Pastor Oyemade, the spirit of God does not reside in a building for it to stop working just because the physical church buildings have been closed down.

Oyemade was reacting after the two aforementioned preachers heavily criticized the Nigerian government for shutting down churches as a way to help fight the coronavirus pandemic.

“The sick healed in the book of Acts were healed on the streets, in people’s homes, in public places and not within the four walls of a Church,” Oyemade said.

“Closing the doors of a physical building does not in any way mean the closure of the anointing of the Spirit from working. Church buildings may be shut down but true faith and the anointing of the Spirit has not stopped working,” he added.

Bishop Oyedepo has taken the closure of churches really hard, even cursing those responsible for it and calling it when the work of the devil when it was simply done to fight the pandemic which is currently killing people all over the world.

Closing the doors of a physical building does not in anyway mean the closure of the anointing of the Spirit from working. The sick we see healed in the book of Acts were healed on the streets, in people's homes, in public places and not within the four walls of a Church. Church buildings may be shut down but true faith and the anointing of the Spirit has not stopped working. There is a difference between expression of emotions and the manifestation of the anointing to heal the sick. There is no where in Jesus's ministry where the healing of the sick was preceded by a congregational service. In the Book of Acts, the sick were healed predominantly on the streets with no fanciful service going on. Closure of a church building does not stop the rivers of living water from flowing out of your belly. It resides in our inner man. There was collective prayer to receive a supply of the Spirit which led to out door manifestations. To this Paul himself attested to the fact that we don't have to be together in a physical space to receive that supply. Did he not say to the Church at Phillipi, I know this shall turn to my salvation through your prayers and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus. The Church was miles away from where Paul was. Charles Finney began a massive revival by people praying in their homes all keeping watches at the same time. They all chose the exact time to pray and they did in their homes until the Spirit broke out on the streets. They did not criticize any other Church or ministry of weakness. Criticizing others doesn't attest to the fact that you have strength. They only stayed with God until something broke out on the streets.
