Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide, David Oyedepo on
Friday recounted how he escaped a “potential plane crash” alongside
those travelling with him.
Oyedepo shared the testimony at the ‘Breakthrough Service’
held at the church’s world headquarters in Ota, Ogun State and broadcast
to all the zonal centres of the church in Ota and Lagos.
The Bishop told the congregation that the aircraft plunged into crisis mid-air, but “God took control and landed the plane.”
He said: “There was a mid-air crisis, there was serious
turbulence, but there was no apprehension. Jesus took control. He landed
the plane safely. And we were just celebrating the faithfulness of
Although he did not disclose where he was going or coming
from when the incident happened, a source told us that he might have
been returning from London.
The Bishop said he would give the details of the incident at
a thanksgiving service later on. After sharing the testimony, the
bishop led the congregation to sing a thanksgiving chorus.
Also speaking at the service was the Vice President of the
commission, Bishop David Abioye, who gave thanks that the shouts of
Halleluya were not that of mourning.
“We are not shouting and wailing about our father who the devil tried to
cut down. The devil wants to strike the shepherd so that the flock will
scatter but God said no,” Abioye said.
The Winners Church has embarked on massive evangelism since the year
begun and just concluded the ‘Pray, Go, Bring and Nurture ‘ Prophetic
Agenda which witnessed three-week morning and evening raids
(prayers/evangelism) in all church branches worldwide.
Quoting copiously from 2Corinthians 1 verse 8, Oyedepo, who preached
vehemently on the ‘Weapons of Vengeance’ before telling worshippers his
near-death experience, declared God averted death in his life and that
of those he was travelling with.
There is going to be a Thanksgiving Service in Canaanland Ota, Ogun State on Sunday, October 8, 2017.
