The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG. Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has stated total eradication of COVID-19 from the world would take a special miracle from God.
The cleric made this remark during his ministration, on Dove television broadcasted live on Sunday.
He, however, posited that by the grace of God, as many as were children of God indeed would be exempted from calamity associated with COVID-19.
Speaking on the titled: Seven Ways to Deal With a Mountain,” Adeboye stressed that the pandemic would not disappear completely but Christians must trust God, the maker of heaven and earth to remain safe.
He maintained that there was no challenge that men passed through that was strange to God, pointing out that even though he was not a prophet but a pastor, God told him at the beginning of the year, the world would be like a child in convulsion.
His words: “The coronavirus pandemic would not disappear completely but it would only subside. It is only a miracle that would cause the pandemic to disappear completely. God has told me that his children who worship him in truth would be exempted from calamity associated with the pandemic.
“I told you that this year, the world will behave like a child in convulsion. I told you at the beginning of the year, even though I am not a prophet, but a Pastor. You will come out of this problem safely and sound, but you must take the step of faith”.
However, he said that good things could also come out of the pandemic, stressing that some families had also united and bonded during the lockdown.
“Some people who did not have time for their families would now bond and have better relationships with their families. God can help you to fly over the challenges brought by the pandemic. All you need do is trust in God”.
Adeboye also advised that there is a need to believe the prophet of God, noting that God uses His prophet to bring solutions to issues of life. He cited the example of Isaiah who prophesied about the coming Messiah and who had also said by His stripe we were healed.
