Bishop David Oyedepo says that we don’t win souls because we want to fill a 100,000-seat Church.
You may already know that the Living Faith Church is working on a legacy project: an auditorium called The Ark that can hold 100,000 people. But Bishop David Oyedepo has said that the reason he keeps calling for outreaches and operations, where his people go out and try to win souls and bring them to church, is because he wants to show people that God loves them. He said that it’s not because they want to fill the new church auditorium, which is still being built. Instead, it’s because they want to do what God wants them to do at the end of time.
During his sermon at the Covenant Hour of Prayer meeting, he talked about how God’s plan for the end of time is to take over territories and turn churches into real towns without walls. He told the story of Jesus Christ’s parable, in which a king told his servants to go find the people he had invited to a feast he had set up. But each guest had a different reason why they couldn’t come. Then this king told his servants to go out into the streets, highways, and hedges and invite everyone they can find. The servants kept asking people to come over until there was no more room in the house.
Bishop David Oyedepo said:
“We don’t win souls because we want to fill a 100,000-seat auditorium.”
“It’s not about filling a stadium with 100,000 seats. It’s not about filling up a church. It has to do with taking land for God “he said.
The Bishop also read from the book of Acts, which told how whole towns and cities came to hear God’s word and turn to the truth. He said that when God turns whole nations, towns, communities, and villages to Jesus Christ and sets them up in the church, this is what it means for God’s people to take over territories in the end time.
