Prophet TB Joshua, the General Overseer of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) has said that hi church will remain under locks and keys as he is not convinced enough by the government pronouncement but he is waiting on God.
This is reacting to the Lagos State directive and the lifted ban on the religious gathering in the state. The Executive Governor of Lagos State, Mr Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwoolu has given religious gatherings in Lagos state the go-ahead to commence worship from Friday, August 7th and Sunday, August 9th, 2020.
Several religious bodies have started preparation to open worship centres in line with the guidelines of the state. In the same vein, others have released fresh COVID19 precautionary rules to complement that of the state ahead of the weekly worship.
Prophet TB Joshua has said he is still waiting on God’s directive before service can commence in the church.
TB Joshua speaking on SCOAN’s Emmanuel TV has directed worshipers to remain indoor as God has not asked him to open the church for worship. Noting that the authorities have done so well.
“Good morning and win today! Following the announcement that church services will resume in Lagos on August 9th, 2020 – that is, this coming Sunday – I wish to commend the authorities for their efforts so far.
“However, having heard from the authorities, we are now waiting to hear from God. Please be assured that as soon as we hear from God, we will inform you when our services will resume. Emmanuel – God is with us,” he said.
