The general overseer of SCOAN, Prophet TB Joshua, has said he will not reopen his churches in Lagos state until he hears from God.
According to the prophet, SCOAN members will know when they are to start attending physical services after God has spoken.
He made the remark on Wednesday saying the move by government to reopen churches on August 9, is commendable, but he will not do so unless he gets direct message from God. He therefore assured his followers that they will be made to know when to resume usual activities when he hears from God.
“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,”
The cleric said that his resting time is when he receives from God, while his working time is the period he comes to the altar to preach. He in a video revealed the mountain where he always go to commune with God, as he could be seen with Bible while muttering words of prayer.
He stated this in a question and answer session on Emmanuel TV on YouTube, in which he said whatever the situation a believer finds himself, it is for his obedience to God. He said:
“Christians, do not make the mistake of thinking that you are ‘out of touch’. God often uses ‘anything’ to preserve us and to strengthen our desires and determination for God.Whatever your situation as a believer, it is all for your obedience to God (Hebrews 5:8).”
There’s no point reopening churches, Coronavirus is a punishment from God
