Pastor Adewale Giwa of Awaiting the Second Coming of Jesus Christ Ministries has kicked against the decision to keep people away from churches due to coronavirus.
Coronavirus has seen churches affected by the ban placed on gatherings of more than 50 people.
“In the Book of Mathew 18:20, Jesus says where two or three are gathered, I will be there. Telling churches to close their doors to their flocks is a ploy to weaken Christians while empowering the devil,” he declared.
He added, “I wonder how our God will be feeling knowing that millions of people all over the world who claim to love Him, pray to Him, and sing praises to Him are all fake.
“We all gladly ran away from church at the mention of orchestrated Coronavirus. I am very saddened by this thought and I pray God to forgive all of us, fake believers.
“We shut down without putting up a fight for Christ. I am reminded of Apostle Peter who denied Christ three times before the rooster crowed. I pray Jehovah to forgive my ignorance and I implore all of you to join me in prayers and supplication to our unshakable Jehovah.
“Jesus said it in the book of Matthew 10:39 that he who finds his life would lose it, and he who loses his life for His sake would find it.” We abandoned the church to preserve our lives instead of losing our lives while fighting to keep God’s supposed church.
“Please, let us all get down on our knees for the next three – four weeks and pray against this attempt at introducing the antichrist prematurely to the world.”
