THE presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide, popularly known as Winners Chapel, Dr. David Oyedepo, yesterday relived how he and others travelling with him escaped what he described as a “potential plane crash.”
The bishop 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. Bishop Oyedepo told the congregation that the plane had a mid-air crisis, but added that “God took control and landed the plane.”
Before he shared his testimony after the normal preaching, he was said to have read IICorinthians 1:8- 12 and asked the congregation to read those verses of the Bible when they got home. He then led the congregation to read Psalms 52, Isaiah 52: 1-3 and Psalms 94: 1-3, which talks about God’s vengeance against the wicked.
The bishop then told the congregation how God miraculously delivered him and the others when the plane ran into turbulence. 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 God.” 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.
He, however, said he would give the details of the incident tomorrow at a thanksgiving service. After sharing the testimony, the bishop, who was said to be his vivacious self throughout, led the congregation to sing a thanksgiving chorus: Almighty God, all powerful God; you are worthy to receive all our praise, you reign forever more.
