The General Overseer of The Lord's Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries, Pastor Lazarus Muoka on Thursday, during his deliverance service at the headquarters, fervently prayed against COVID-19.
Leading the congregational prayers, Muoka declared that the evil kingdom responsible for the spread of the virus shall be no more.
Standing on the Scriptural authority bestowed on the born again Christians written in Mathew 18:18 which says, "Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven" Muoka thus bound and banished the evil spirit in charge of the virus.
He decreed that its power to cause the death of anybody be it American, Asian, Australian, African and European is henceforth destroyed.
Praying further, the man of God asked the Lord Almighty to intervene and deliver Nigerians in present hopeless situation as He did for His people in the days of the Bible when the plaques and pestilences ravaged the land of Egypt.
He affirmed that with God all things are possible and assured the worshippers that the spread of COVID-19 will cease for God answers our prayers.
Muoka attributed the pandemic to a programme of anti-christ. He said through prayers, the church will vehemently resist its activities.
Referring to the ban on religious meetings, the man of God said that the church, being an organisation that is not only heavenly conscious, but health conscious has adhered to the government directives, adding, "we are calling on our members across the state to key into any move that would make the pandemic disease a thing of the past".
He urged every member of the church to maintain personal hygiene, and do the best to join the campaign against the spread of the disease in the church, homes and business places.
Consequently, as preventive measure to further protects the worshippers from the spread of the virus; the General Overseer has suspended all activities at its mega auditorium in Lagos headquarters.
Addressing the press after the meeting, the Public Relations Officer of the Church, Pastor Louis Chidi, said before now, the church places very high premium on the spiritual and physical lives of its members because he understands that man is made of the soul, spirit and body.
Accordingly, the church has provided sanitisers at every entry point of the church because a healthy man is he whose sound health is directly proportional to his mental and spiritual health.
"Our pastor in addition to his holiness and righteous messages to the church also taught members how to prosper and be in good health vis-à-vis personal hygiene, particularly washing of their hands with soap regularly, as well as sanitising their hands.
That was even before the Christian Association of Nigeria's directive came that churches should provide sanitisers to their members and encourage them to wash hands with soap", he said.
