Pastor Fatoyinbo of Coza who returned to the pulpit 4th August, one month after stepping down following rape allegations has prophesied Victory for his members in the month of August.
Scores of protesters stormed the church in early July to protest against Fatoyinbo who was accused of raping photographer, Busola Dakolo, 20 years ago,
Following lots of criticism in the media with the protest as the last straw, Fatoyinbo announced his decision to step down, while his wife, Modele, had taken charge of the church — a move which seemed to pacify protesters.
On Sunday, however, the COZA senior pastor delivered a sermon titled, Sudden victories, in a packed church auditorium.
He took his sermon from the books of 1st Timothy 6:12; Mark 4:35-37 and 1st Corinthians 10:13.
Fatoyinbo said it was written in the Bible that Christians would always face persecution, but God would ensure that they are victorious.
He said, “As a Christian, you must face opposition. If God, who is holy and faithful has enemies, you are sure going to have.”
ThePastor said most times, when faced with troubles, Christians have the tendency to call everyone except God for help.
He noted that the reason most Christians fail is that they address challenging circumstances on the surface, instead of addressing the root of the matter, which is the enemy, and putting him in his place.
“In wrestling, any method can be used. When faced with challenging circumstances, pray, fast, decree, confess and prophesy God’s victory over your life.
Most contrary situations around you are set up by the enemy to ripple your faith and keep you on a spot,” he preached.
Pastor Fatoyinbo is still under investigation by the police in connection with the rape cases.
