The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, says the Coronavirus pandemic will end when God has proved to the world that he is the Almighty.
Adeboye made this known during his Easter message to his church members on DOVE TV on Sunday.
The RCCG pastor also urged Nigerians to be careful and not to relax in the fight to curb the spread of the disease.
He said that although some prophets had said the pandemic would end at the end of March, God told him that there would be Coronavirus until the world goes on a compulsory holiday.
The cleric maintained that although some prophets had claimed that the disease would be wiped out by rain, Coronavirus will not die.
He said: “I want to bring good news to someone. I want to tell you that my God is not dead, he is alive.
“Not only is alive, he is in control. If you have any doubt at all the situation in recent past should show you clearly that he is in control.
“I want to also advise that we should remain on our guards. It will be unwise to relax too soon.
“And when I said relax I am not talking about being anxious, I am talking about becoming careless.
“We are not out of the woods yet, we will be and it won’t be too long. Like I told you before, there were those who said the whole thing will be over by the end of March.
“Some people said it will rain for seven days and then it will be over. That’s what the prophet said but your little dad who is a pastor who is not a prophet told you is that this thing is going to be on until God has proved beyond all doubt to the entire world that he is in charge.
“Until the whole world have had a compulsory holiday. I hope you are enjoying your holiday?
“I am enjoying mine. It might be a little bit difficult but like some of us who do not know how to slow down God himself have to apply the break.
“I want to assure you, your tomorrow also will be alright. Between every two days there is always a night”.
He added: “They were those who said it would be over by the end of March; then a prophet said there would be heavy rain and Coronavirus would be over.
“But God told your papa who is not a prophet but a pastor that it will be there until the whole world has had a compulsory holiday.
“Until he proves to the whole world that he is God. He wants to prove to the world that he is in charge. Some people don’t know how to slow down and God knows how to apply brakes.
“I want to assure you that tomorrow will be alright. I hope you are enjoying your holiday because I am.”
