General Superintendent, Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has said God told him that the world would go on compulsory holiday in view of the raging Coronavirus pandemic.
Adeboye, who spoke during his sermon on Sunday said at the beginning of the year, “I told you that God told me that the earth would behave like a child having convulsions. There was something extra He said that I didn’t share.
“He told me that this year, the whole world will go on a compulsory holiday. The last time the world came close to this was 9/11. I thought it was going to repeat itself. I kept my mouth shut because I didn’t want to be seen as having info I didn’t share.”
According to Adeboye, “Daddy wants to show the world that He’s still the One on the throne. As soon as He shows to the world that He can shut down the whole world, He will remove the plague. How long that will take, I cannot tell you.
“So my children, enjoy this public holiday that God has given you. You may ask, why would God allow sickness? Is the devil not the author of evil? Yes he is, but God controls the devil. Someone did a research and found out that the number of people that have died from malaria is more than 5 times the number of those who have died from Corona virus.
“The reason why it is out there is because it is a noisy pestilence. When God is done with what He wants to do, the plague will subside, but it will not totally go. Maintain strict hygiene even beyond COVID-19.”
Adeboye said the governments had tried within human ability, saying that the Lord God Almighty would bless them all, adding that the compulsory holiday had already started in the major nations of the world, especially those who boasted in what they could do.
“Don’t be surprised at those who are mocking prayers; just pray for them because they’re mocking the One who answers prayers. Don’t get angry at them, just pray for them. 1. Psalm 91:1 There is someone called the Most High. Isaiah 66:1 If there is anyone who thinks he is high, God is higher than such. Ecclesiastes 5:8, Ephesians 1:18-22,” he added.
He said he had a word for his congregation, saying “At the beginning of the year, I asked you to fast for 50 days and you did so without asking why. You fasted because you trust me. With the same trust, I want you to go ahead and relax. No plague is coming near you; you can take the Word of God from me. If you didn’t fast, it’s not too late to fast.”
