The president of the Living Faith Church worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo has said he stopped receiving salary from his Church since December 1984.
The Bishop who preached at the encounter night at ongoing Shiloh 2020, said: ” The blessings of the Lord maketh rich and add no sorrow with. There is a difference between the blessings of the Lord and the blessings of the effort of man.
Oyedepo who preached on ‘Unveiling the turnaround wonders of the altar of sacrifice’ added: “We run our home like hotel. I have always had people living with me even when I was living in one room apartment. The last time I counted I had about 22 people working for me.
“I didn’t bring a dime into ministry. God is too big to help. Men are not the builders of Churches, God said he will build his church and the gates of hell will not prevail.
“I still sleep like a baby. I never asked God to enrich me, I only suçceeded in passing the test of sacrifice. Every child of God that works genuinely in the convenant have a great future.
“Those saying these people are stealing will just rain curse of the Lord on themselves. Prosperity is not on what you are given but in what you give.
“Many years ago, I told God if you ever bless me, I will build Churches”.
