Bishop David Oyedepo reveals his retirement plan
Citing the implementation of the FRCN law, the former GO of the RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, said he’d be stepping down.
General Overseers of other churches who have led their churches for more than 20 years would have to step down.
The FRCN regulation stipulates that the rule applies to public and private sectors, including churches and mosques.
The news has hit a home run for the Living Faith Church also known as winners Chapel.
The founder and General Overseer, Bishop David Oyedepo, has himself reacted to the FRCN law.
Bishop Oyedepo said he was not going to retire and would remain in charge of the church as he has been for the past 35 years.According to him, no authority or law can frustrate his apostolic calling.
“If you heard or saw anything in the newspapers or anywhere that the G.O has retired, it’s a lie of the devil.
“In our spiritual family tree, we don’t retire.
“Someone asked Kenneth Copeland ‘are you stepping down’, he replied, ‘no I’m stepping up’.
“Copeland ministered for 6 hours straight at 80 years of age.”“Men and brethren settle down and enjoy my being here.
“I’m going to be here for a very long time.
“I spoke to my father in the Lord (Pastor Adeboye) in person and he said let them enjoy the confusion for a moment.
“I believe in the covenant of 120yrs.
“I can preach for 10 services now and that proves I have many more years before I go.
“If you hear anything, it’s illegal and not passed into law.
“I’m not serving or earning anything from anybody or government.“No government can determine the constitution of the church and they know.
“I was called by God into the prophetic in 1981 and the apostolic ministry in 1992.
“No authority or law can frustrate an apostolic calling if it’s from God.
“Forget my height oo. All the demons in Nigeria know who’s who. Just relax.”
