Speaking on Tuesday during the opening session of the annual 'Shiloh Programme' of the Living Faith Church a.k.a Winners Chapel, in Ota, Ogun State, the Presiding Bishop, Dr. David Oyedepo, revealed that Nigerians will experience harsher economic challenges.
According to The Punch, the influential cleric enjoined his congregation and the entire Nigerians to draw closer to God in order to survive the impending tough economic climate.
“It looks tough presently but it’s going to get tougher in the days to come. Obedience to the terms of covenant will put you in total command. When all your obedience is fulfilled, all opposition is brought down,” he said.
Alluding to the Bible, the bishop said that recession was not a new phenomenon, urging the audience to be committed to God to overcome the financial challenges.
“However, from scriptures, all the children of the covenant, who walk according to biblical truth will always enjoy exemptions from the gross darkness and evils plaguing the world,” he said.
According to a statement from the church, the opening session was witnessed by over 2,000 delegates from 41 countries.
