‘We don’t have money to fight covid-19 but we have God’ – Pastor Adeboye. Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, declared that Nigeria does not have money or resources to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, but God has the land.
The remark by Adeboye comes in response to a statement made by the founder of Billionaire Microsoft, Bill Gate, who recently said he didn’t understand why COVID-19 cases and deaths were low in Africa, a country that lacked adequate capacity to battle the scourge with healthcare, financial capital and government.
He wanted African bodies to litter about ‘like bees,’ said Bill Gates.
“In response, Adeboye said: “When I read that it would take 10 years for individuals in the U.S. to be vaccinated, I wonder when the vaccine will come to Nigeria. We don’t have money, we don’t have resources, but we do have God. They wanted us to die like flies, but we have a God who says that under the shadow of the Almighty, he who dwells in the hidden place will be.
God told him in his 2021 prophecy, according to Adeboye, that the earth had not learnt its lesson.
“Pastor Adeboye said, “It is the God who reigns and governs in men’s affairs and the world must accept his lordship in everything that they do.
He told Christian believers that “we’ll survive any calamity that comes.”
He urged his listeners, announcing that God will take care of His own, not to be afraid.
“In the breeze, there is terror. Fear is a rapist. Since they are scared, some people will die of hypertension. He said, “The coronavirus may not come close to them, but fear can kill them,”
When you ask a guy to do a job only God can do, if he makes mistakes, don’t accuse him. I was curious when I learned that several restaurants were shutting down. What about all of us going to bukas (roadside restaurants), how many bukas are you going to close? What are you going to do with people eating boli (roasted plantain) like me,’ said Adeboye.
However, Adeboye warned: “I do not claim to be careless.” Carry a mask of yours. On hygiene, we are descriptive. Hold your hands looking. If far as possible, do psychological distancing. To the government, comply. Wash your fucking hands.
However, he said that he would not want social distance to keep him from putting his hands on the sick. Loud and simple, the Lord told me that the RCCG is my Church. I will look after my own. I won’t be frightened. My God will look after me,’ he added.
If you feel ungrateful, then what he has done will be withdrawn. You’ll need God again sooner or later, so be grateful,’ he said.
