The senior pastor of the Household of God Church, Rev. Chris Okotie has rejected the latest guidelines issued by the Lagos State Government for the reopening of worship centers.
In a statement released in Lagos, the Pastor of the Household of God Church, Oregun, Lagos described the guidelines as an ‘abomination of desolation.’
Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had announced the new guidelines for the reopening of worship centers, which restricted church attendance to 500 members.
He also said those who are 65 and above and below 15 years of age cannot attend.
The measures, according to the governor, are meant to control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, Rev Okotie, rejected the new directives, vowing that “Our doors will remain closed until these profanation and secularization have been pulverized by the Emperor of heaven.”
His statement reads thus;
“Beloved, yesterday, the abomination of desolation took a giant step towards standing in the holy place.
To reorder temple worship is to deny God, the divine prerogative of congregational adoration and the holy genuflects of the saints in light.
Let no man’s heart be troubled by the vengeance of satanic antagonism. Dagon the god of the Philistines fell in obeisance before the Ark of God.
Coronavirus, the god of Secular Humanism will be decapitated in like manner. Our doors will remain closed until these profanation and secularization have been pulverized by the Emperor of heaven.
Unto him shall the gathering of the people be. To thy tents, O Israel.”
