Bishop David Oyedepo of Winners Chapel International, in the first service at the Faith Tabernacle Canaanland Ota Ogun State Nigeria revealed that there is nothing remaining in Nigeria again, than the investment of God’s people in the country’s economy.
While preaching he said, it was the unleashed financial fortune that changed the saying “as poor as a Church rat”, which came during revival, which has also affected the church from completing one church building in 20 years to building numerous churches at the same time.
If you recall the position of the church in Nigeria in the 70s, and early 80s, it makes the proverb as poor as church rat as the true description of the church those times. You can have church building going on for 20 years, without even completing it.
As soon as the revival move came, people’s heart started panting for God the more, and that was where the story of people start changing. If you remove the product of Revival from the economy of Nigeria there is nothing left in the country’s economy.
He went and said you know the other group of people are killing themselves, they have no purpose, no plan, no forward mentality. If you check the employment of people into labour, it is Christians that are doing it, and that is why your church can be building the ark, and still be building in the rural areas.
Don’t miss your place in this thing.
