I am the richest pastor in the world – Oyedepo

Published

on

Founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo has concurred with people making the news of him being the richest pastor in the world, saying that he has met all the criteria used in accessing the richest person.

Speaking during the Day 4 of International Youth Alive Convention 2022 tagged “Destined for Dominion” at Faith Tabernacle Canaanland, Oyedepo said that the last time he collected a salary in ministry was 1987, yet God is sustaining him.

“December 1987 was the last time I earned my last pay in this ministry. Nobody heard it from my mouth until 1996 at a minister’s conference and the Church for the first time in 2007. I wasn’t an object of pity; I already had my own financial system running without taking a penny from your Church money.

“We have our books now being published in different languages around the world at no charge to us and yet they send us royalties. Have I ever taken a dime from books in my life? Never! To be blessed is the purpose. And yet it sells in millions and multimillions every year.

“All these corner corner life is not the way to live. And yet they say the richest pastor in the world is this short man and they are not lying because somebody never borrowed, never begged, and never lacked. Then what does it mean to be rich? Never one day announcement that gets people jittery? And always giving and giving? Then who is a wealthy man? You better wake up!

“My God, this love is not theoretical. I am still on the field: Jesus loves you. In the market place, Jesus loves you. Motor garage, Jesus loves you. Under the bridge, Jesus loves you, He sent me to you my friend. You better wake up!”

Pastor A. E. Adeboye

Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, says Nigeria is already fighting many wars and should not engage in more hostilities.

Adeboye spoke during the 71st RCCG Holy Ghost Convention 2023.

He encouraged the congregation to pray for Nigeria against war, saying he knows what war looks like and he prefers peace to war.

”We are already fighting many wars in Nigeria, wars against kidnappers and war against terrorists; there are still places in Nigeria today when people go to bed they are not sure they won’t be killed before tomorrow morning”.

”We are still fighting wars against some people. If you are a farmer and you plant, to them, what you have planted is food for their cows, and their cows come to eat your harvest, and you complain they kill you.”

”We are still fighting war against hunger, etc. fighting mysterious wars.”

”Surely we don’t want more wars, we want to win the ones we are fighting, and we don’t want fresh wars within or outside our borders.”

”For this reason, we don’t pray for war.”
