According to a Facebook page belonging to the Faith Tabernacle, a man has been brought back to life after he was pronounced dead by four different hospitals. The man’s life was however restored by Bishop Oyedepo who placed his prophetic mantle round his neck and poured some anointing oil into his mouth.
The post reads:
”Luiz Fidelis was referred to the mortuary by the officials of LUTH-Lagos University Teaching Hospital,after being taken to other three major hospitals in the state. His Area pastor ordered for him to be brought home, after which he called on the God of his father Bishop David Oyedepo, he placed the prophetic mantle round his neck and poured some anointing oil inside his mouth. Immediately, he vomited two cowries and that was how he was restored. Fidelis is now walking gallantly in the lord. Bishop David Oyedepo while placing a seal of perfection on the former patient’s life,declared that anything dying or dead around you shall be restored back to life by the resurrection power of Jesus Christ.
Jesus is Lord!”.
