The General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG), Enoch Adeboye has revealed that the journey to the recovery amidst the Coronavirus pandemic has begun and has advised governments and individuals not to relax efforts put in place to fight the COVID-19 pandemic because it was not yet over. While conducting the ministry’s Special Dispensation Sunday Service live on television, he announced to the congregation that an end might be coming to the lockdown order enforced because the Covid-19 pandemic will soon be over.
According to him, he might not be having more than just one more Special Dispensation Sunday Service with them. “ I have good news to all of you, I can tell you that the journey to recovery of this pandemic of Covid-19 has begun. I might not have more than one more Sunday with you and your Pastors will resume again”
The General Overseer, however, stressed that the journey to the end of the recovery might not be rapid but will be steady and gradual. After announcing this he also encouraged that though the medical practitioners have tried tremendously to tame the scourge of the pandemic, all of the glory should be given to God when the pandemic is over. Adeboye made this known in his Easter message entitled: ‘A New Beginning.’ In his message, which was broadcast live through the church’s channel, Dove TV, the cleric said God is still in control while assuring that the pandemic would be over in no time. “I want to bring good news to someone. I want to tell you my God is not dead; He is alive. Not only is He alive, but He is also in control.”
Pastor Adeboye also appreciated the governments at all levels for their relentless efforts across Nigeria but advised that next time a committee would be set up on a pandemic, men of God should be selected as members. The government has done credibly well, but I want to suggest that when next such committees would be set up on a case like this man of God should be selected. I am not talking of a small boy like me, but I am talking of Chief Imams, Archbishops so they can help with the spiritual aspects of the issue.
