Did Bishop Oyedepo really threaten to ‘open the gates of hell’?
THE JONATHAN VISIT
It was not the first time that Jonathan and Oyedepo would be together. On Monday, January 12 when Jonathan visited Ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta, Oyedepo was in attendance. Also present was Enoch Adeboye, general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG). Jonathan’s fascination with pastors is well-documented and both men were naturally believed to have attended the meeting at his instance.
On Sunday January 25 when he was with Oyedepo for the second time in two weeks, he was paying a “surprise” visit to the church during its third service. Both men had the chance to talk, Jonathan speaking either side of the pastor’s two appearances. So, what did they say? Did Jonathan request the bishop to open the gates of hell? Or did the bishop of his volition decide hell was best destination for Jonathan’s opponents and he, as a man of God should open its gates, as has been suggested? What exactly were their words?
To the glory of God, we have a very special guest in our midst, the president of the Federal republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. Give the lord a big hand. Your excellency, you are welcome. Please be seated; get seated everyone. Amen.
In the course of this service, he will be bringing us special greetings. Expect, today, to return with whatever desires you came back with, in Jesus name.
Once again, with a big clap offering, welcome Mr. president to our midst…
I will like this congregation in this third service to join me and receive on this altar, for a word of greatness, a blessing from the father of the nation, to this congregation. Please join me welcome Mr. President, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, as he brings us a word from the lord.
Thank you, my brethren. Please be seated. My Bishop, thank you so much and our mummy, Mama Faith Oyedopo, I have to thank you so much and other clergy men…
