The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has assured his members that coronavirus would not come close to them in as much as they abide with God.
The cleric gave the assurance in a video he shared on his Twitter page, where he also advised members to always ‘wash their hands and keep their environment clean’ in order to fight the deadly virus.
Quoting a passage from the bible, Pastor Adeboye said:
“By the way, I want to assure you that there is no virus that is going to come near you at all,” the 78-year-old said.
“Because it is written that ‘He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty’.
“I believe that this is the time for God to show you clearly that there is a difference between those serve Him wholeheartedly and those who do not.
“It shall be well with you. You will enjoy peace. You will have good health. The great promoter will promote you.”
