Enoch Adeboye, General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG), has said God told him that only those whose appointed time has come, will die during the Coronavirus pandemic.
According to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control ( NCDC), 97 cases of the disease has now been confirmed in the country, with only one death.
However, global death toll has risen to more than 30,000.
Speaking during the church’s live broadcast on Sunday, Adeboye said genuine children of God, whose time to die has not come should relax, because God will keep them safe, Daily Post said.

Citing Ezekiel chapter 2 verses 5, during his sermon, titled, “Peace Be Still,” Adeboye said:
“When I spoke to my daddy about my pains on those who are dying of the virus around the world, He assured me that; only those whose appointed time has come will die, so when your appointed time has not come, relax and enjoy your holiday.”
He maintained that the world is having a holiday, saying God wants human beings to know that he still controls their affairs.
“I told you earlier that the whole world will be on compulsory holiday so that they will know that God is still in charge.,” Adeboye added.
