Rev. Chris Okotie has rejected the latest guidelines issued by the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu for the reopening of worship centers.
In a statement released in Lagos yesterday, the Pastor of the Household of God Church, Oregun, Lagos described the guidelines as ‘abomination of desolation’.
He then vowed’, Our doors will remain closed until these profanation and secularization have been pulverized by the Emperor of heaven’.
It will be recalled that Governor Sanwo-Olu yesterday rolled out 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, is to control the spread of the Covid 19 pandemic.
However, Rev. Okotie who had last Monday, in a widely published statement, lashed out at CAN for proposing similar guidelines, said Government cannot reorder worship in the house of God.
Below is the full statement sent to Householders yesterday:
“Beloved, yesterday, the abomination of desolation took a giant step towards standing in the holy place. Fulfillment of bible prophecy is being accelerated by the forces of Janes and Jambres. 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. Corona Virus, 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” ……., Rev Chris Okotie.
