The presiding Bishop of Winners Chapel David Oyedepo has revealed on Sunday that he is not interested in being the number one citizen of the country. While speaking to his congregation, he opined that it would be a demotion if he were to take the position of the presidency.
He further discloses, he was asked by God in the year 1984 if perchance he was interested to get to the top. He revealed, he responded confidently. He said he told God :
“THEN WHATEVER I TELL YOU TO DO, DO IT. DON’T RUN AROUND: WHATEVER I TELL YOU TO DO, DO IT. DON’T MUSE ABOUT: WHATEVER I TELL YOU TO DO. DON’T DO WHAT THEY DO: DO WHAT I TELL YOU TO DO.
“1984! DO YOU KNOW THAT’S WHAT LED ME TO SAY, “I WILL CONSIDER IT A DEMOTION…” AND I’M SAYING IT AGAIN, SOME ARE VERY UPSET ABOUT IT, THAT’S THEIR PROBLEM.
“I WILL CONSIDER IT A DEMOTION IF I WERE INVITED TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY. IT’S A GREAT COUNTRY, IT’S A GREAT HONOUR FOR ANYONE TO BE PRESIDENT BUT THAT’S NOT WHERE I BELONG. I BELONG TO ‘ABOVE ALL NATIONS,” HE SAID.
ACCORDING TO OYEDEPO, “ANGRY OR HAPPY, THERE ARE MORE THAN 100 NATIONS NOW HOOKED ON TO THIS SERVICE; AND WE ALL BELONG THERE TOGETHER. THAT’S WHERE WE BELONG. SOME CAN SEE IT, OTHERS CAN’T SEE IT: THEY SAY, “I DON’T BELIEVE IT, I JUST NEED FOOD, WATER AND EAT, DRINK AND DIE. I DON’T NEED ABOVE ALL NATIONS.”
“I’VE SAID IT BEFORE, “THE HIGHEST CONCENTRATION OF GIANTS IN THIS GENERATION WILL EMERGE FROM THIS PLATFORM.” IF YOU ARE ONE OF THEM, LET ME HEAR YOUR LOUDEST AMEN. THE SAME WAY, THIS CHURCH DID NOT NEED ANY HUMAN HELP TO GET TO WHERE WE ARE, YOU WON’T BOW TO ANY DEVIL TO SCALE ANY HEIGHT IN YOUR LIFE.
“WATCH, IF I’M THE ONE TO LIFT YOU, I CAN ONLY TAKE YOU TO WHERE MY HAND CAN REACH. IMAGINE THE EVERLASTING ARM OF JESUS, HE PICKS YOU UP, SCALING EVERLASTING HEIGHTS. I CAN’T GET YOU THERE. THERE IS NO HELP FROM MAN UNDER HEAVEN NO MATTER WHO THAT MAN THAT WILL COMPARE WITH HELP FROM GOD.
