General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has said that God knows about the deadly coronavirus plaguing the world today, adding that God would only subside when He removes the plague.
He posited that the current outbreak of COVID-19 across the world would soon subside but would not be completely eradicated.
Pastor Adeboye, on Sunday, also said God had revealed to him earlier in the year that the world would experience a ‘compulsory holiday’, hence his earlier call to church members to undertake a 50-day fast in January.
He said: “I have heard one prophet say the coronavirus will soon die. And I said ‘amen’. You know prophets are greater than pastors.
”I heard another prophet say the world will experience rain for seven days and (it) will wash the plague away. I said ‘amen’. But I am speaking with you, my children.
”The coronavirus will certainly subside after God has removed the plague but to say it will die, it is a lie.”
According to him, COVID-19 was God’s way of calling the attention of the whole world to godly living, irrespective of class or social standing and to show that He is still in control of human affairs.
He said this is because the ‘compulsory holiday’ now affected both the low and high-class citizens as most nations across the world have now locked down their communities and closed their borders.
The General Overseer also disagreed with those that argue that Satan was the source of all evil and not God. He reminded them of the story of Job in the Bible.
