According to him, as soon as God has proved to the whole world that he can shut down the whole earth if he wants, then he would remove the plague.
Addressing members of his church in a broadcast on Sunday, Pastor Adeboye said:
“He (God) told me loud and clear that the whole world will be on compulsory holiday. I knew the time the world got close to a compulsory holiday was when there was an attack on the World Trade Centre in America.
“So when he said the whole world is going to be on compulsory holiday, I thought something like that was going to happen as it happened during 9/11 and if somebody had prophesied it. When it happens, the Interpol will come and pick up the person and say you heard about the plot.
“You knew when they were planning this thing and you didn’t speak so I kept my mouth shut. Now, the compulsory holiday is here.”
Pastor Adeboye went on to say that the current pandemic was God’s way of making the world know he remained in control.
“The good news is that as soon as he has achieved his purpose, as soon as he has proved to the whole world that he can shut down the whole earth if he wants, then he will remove the plague.
“How long before that happens? I’m sorry I can’t tell you. Enjoy your rest, enjoy your public holiday declared from heaven.”
The cleric maintained that although some prophets including Prophet T B Joshua had claimed that the disease will soon end, coronavirus will not die.
“I have heard one prophet say the coronavirus will soon die. And I said ‘amen’. You know prophets are greater than pastors. I heard that one prophet say coronavirus will end by March 27 and I said ‘Amen’.
“I heard another prophet say the world will experience rain for seven days and (it) will wash the plague away. I said ‘amen’.
“But I am speaking with you, my children. The coronavirus will certainly subside after God has removed the plague but to say it will die, let me speak in local parlance, ‘na lie’ (it is a lie).
“What makes coronavirus interesting is that it is noisy. It is called noisy pestilence. It is making so much noise, and it is making this noise for a purpose: God must get the attention of the whole world. God has declared a compulsory holiday,” he said.
KanyiDaily had reported that the Nigerian Center For Disease Control (NCDC) confirmed that the number of coronavirus cases in the country had hit 30.
