Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has said coronavirus (COVID-19) will not come near childern of God.
Adeboye said this at the first Sunday Thanksgiving of the RCCG new year calendar, held at the headquarters in Lagos on Sunday.
He said God would turn down coronavirus, adding that no virus would come near the children of God.
“God will give us total victory on any virus. The Lord who has kept us to see September will keep us to see the new year,” he prayed.
According to Adeboye, people who are above 70 years needed to check their salvation if they were still afraid of death
“Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, old people were advised to stay at home and not come to church which is good advice.
“But if you are over 70 years of age and you are still afraid of death, then you should check your salvation,” he said.
Adeboye urged his congregation to always praise the Lord because He had done a lot for the country and everyone in particular.
“When we remember some people we grew up with are dead, some are in prison, sick, and we are still alive, then we should have reasons to praise the Lord.
“When we know we have the Almighty God, the conqueror of any virus by our side, then we have every reason to thank God,” he said.
