The head pastor of Living Faith International Ministries, Bishop David Oyedepo has warned those who insult men of God to desist from doing so.
The well-to-do pastor was preaching at a leadership conference at his Church’s headquarters at Ota, in Ogun State when he said this.
He said those who do that risk going down with leprosy. In the bible, Moses’ siblings Aaron and Miriam went down with leprosy after they criticised Moses.
Oyedepo said, “Beware of speaking hurt against the Ministry you claim to be part of advancing, it’s a risk.
“Beware of speaking hurt against a Prophet you claim to believe. It is dangerous. It can make a man leprous. It is dangerous. We don’t have the data of how many victims may have come from this warning, but I know quite some would have been victims.
“One of the Leaders in this Nation said, “what we are saying now, Bishop is in his room. he is hearing.” When we give warnings, we give it based on prophetic insights.”
“Every prophet is ordained to be spoken against. So it is not a problem. It is already written. It is not that it is something that is new,” he said.
