The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has revealed that only people destined to die of COVID-19 will be killed by the pandemic, Oyogist.com reports.
Adeboye said God revealed that to him when he sought his help regarding the containment of the virus.
He further encouraged his congregation to not be afraid, that you won’t die if your time is not yet here, buy when you allow pride to take over you, God will leave everything for you to do by yourself.
Adeboye disclosed this while speaking at the church’s annual Holy Ghost Congress, saying, “I said it on January 1 this year; I was telling them the government has done very well in fighting coronavirus – an enemy we can’t see. I said don’t be careless but don’t be afraid because there is a God who can see the invisible.
“When this coronavirus broke, I cried to God and Daddy answered me. God spoke to me specifically and said, “Son, I have heard your cry. Only those whose time has come will die.
“I heard the number of people who die by snakebite every year is about 2,000. That means in two years averagely 4,000 people die by snake bites. Coronavirus has been around for nearly two years now.
“By the grace of God, it hasn’t killed 4,000 yet. Take my word for it; don’t be afraid. You won’t die until your time comes.
“But when pride comes and the moment you think you can do things on your own, God will leave everything to you. God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. – James 4:6; John 15:5; God made you for his pleasure so he doesn’t like the idea of you wanting to be independent of Him.”
