The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E.A Adeboye, says the global epidemic which has killed thousands of people across the world is a warning sign from God.
According to the popular preacher, God told him sometime ago that this year, the whole world was going to be on compulsory holiday and that is what is happening.
During his sermon on Sunday morning, Adeboye said that he didn't really understand the message when God sent it to him, as it was difficult to explain. He had felt what God was trying to notify him of was another attack like the 9/11 which occurred in America several years ago.
The cleric said he kept shut about the revelation because didn't want to be entangled in Interpol investigations if it had happened.
Pastor Adeboye further revealed that God is only showing the world that he is still in charge and that heaven remains his throne and the whole earth his footstool. Adeboye then added that as soon as God has finished proving his point, he would restore normalcy.
The video of the teaching and revelation of the clergyman was shared by Nigerian feminist and atheist, @Ulomareen, who was clearly shocked by the message.
Ulo wrote: "Today, Pastor Adeboye told his followers that God told him earlier about Coronavirus & that He brought the plague upon the world to show them that he in still in countrol. That is, God created a disaster that has killed thousands just to flex his muscles. A loving, merciful God."
The video has drawn reactions from other Twitter users. See some screenshots below:
