Prominent church leaders in Nigeria and Akwa Ibom State have attributed the CORONAVIRUS pandemic currently ravaging the world to God.
Both the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor E.A Adeboye and Senior Pastor of Solid Rock Kingdom Church, Apostle John Okoriko toed the same line of thought in their Easter Sunday gospel messages which were broadcasted live.
Adeboye who revealed that God had showed him earlier in the year that “the world will experience a convulsion” said that “God intends to use this pandemic to prove to the world that he is in charge. This thing is going to be ON until God proved to the world that he is in charge, until the whole world has had a compulsory holiday” he said.
On his part, renowned tele-evangelist, Apostle John Okoriko during a live ministration on Comfort FM, monitored by rolantimes.com, postulated that CORONAVIRUS was God’s way of drawing the attention of the world to the fact that he reigns in the affairs of men.
Okoriko said that “Rulers of this world have assumed and apportioned powers that belongs to God to themselves as in the days of Babylon, corruption and immorality had taken over the world as it was in Sodom and Gormorah, God is using this pandemic to remind us that he is in charge”.
He argued that although Jesus Christ had died to redeem man through his blood, that as a father, He could still chastise people of the world.
While admonishing believers to obey all instructions given by government and health workers, he predicted that after the CORONAVIRUS pandemic, (which he said will end soon) things will change in all the nations of the world for the better. “God will not allow this to be so unbearable, soon, he will heal the earth and you will see that things will change in all nations of the world. A country like ours will change the healthcare system for the better”. He predicted
