LAGOS: The governor of Lagos state, Mr Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu has maintained that churches and mosques in Lagos state remain closed despite the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari had lifted the ban on religious organisations in the new directives to battle Covid-19.
This is coming after the founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet TB Joshua said recently that his church will not open till God asks him to, even after the ban has been lifted on religious organization.
It will be right to say Governor Sanwo-Olu, having thought about the welfare of Lagosians, and the possible repercussion of opening churches at this time, concur with the prophetic message of Prophet TB Joshua too.
The Prophet when delivering the message of not opening his church recently made it known that God gave him the revelation three times that the church will be closed and that he is also waiting for the same God to tell him when to open it.
He therefore urged listeners to join him on Emmanuel TV as he awaits God’s instruction.
His words, ‘’Viewers, don’t forget there was a revelation three times concerning the church closing.
“Viewers, that same God, we are waiting to hear from on when to reopen – when things will go back to normal – as usual. God’s time is the best. We are waiting at His feet for that time. We are tarrying for the Holy Spirit’s instruction. Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
“Meet us as usual on Emmanuel TV until we hear from God when to reopen, the same God who gave us the prophecy three times about the church closing. It is God’s work, not our work. Here, our thanks go to the authorities for understanding. Jesus is Lord!”
