The General Overseer , Redeemed Christian Church of God , Pastor Enoch Adeboye , has lauded the world leaders for their initiatives in fighting the COVID – 19 pandemic that is currently ravaging human race , but says governments cannot lock the world down forever for fear of its spread .
Rather than doting solely on human solutions to the physical problem , he urged all believers to wait upon the Lord to overcome both physical and spiritual problems facing the world .
The cleric , who spoke during a sermon titled , ‘ Flying over mountains ’ on Dove Television Station , on Sunday , dwelt on the Holy Bible account in Isiah 40, 28- 31 which talked on ‘ Waiting upon the Lord . ’
According to him , waiting on God requires perseverance , holiness and diligence . Explaining what it takes to be a waiter , the clergyman said , “ The one who waits is called a waiter .
The job of a waiter includes sitting a guest down .
In a good hotel, a waiter brings you water ; presents you the menu .
He provides you food and waits on you or stands by you until you are fully satisfied.

“ I assure you , you will fly over the mountain of physical lockdown .
In Acts 16, 16- 34 , Paul was minding his business .
The demonised girl began to bother him .
He cast out the demon ; he was doing the work of God .
They grabbed him and threw him and Silas , his partner, into prison .
They were thoroughly locked down with chains on their legs and hands , then they waited on the Lord and God sent an earthquake.
“ We thank God for all that the governments have been doing , but you know what?
You can ’ t lock down the whole world forever .
Sooner or later , the lockdown would be over .
For some people , it would be over sooner than later .
You learn to worship the Almighty God and all of a sudden , you will discover that instead of the lockdown being a problem , it would become an asset . ”
The cleric , who pointed out that the problem occasioned by spiritual lockdown was greater than the physical lockdown , stated , “ If you worship the Almighty God and wait on him appropriately , you will fly over spiritual lockdown
“ Physical lockdown is a minor thing .
There is a saying that there are people who are prisoners , but who are not in the prison yard .
They are in their homes .
They can go in and come out but they are in prison also because they have problems ; forces of darkness holding them in bondage .
“ Look at the mad man of Gadara .
He was locked down in a graveyard by forces of darkness .
But when he saw Jesus Christ coming , he fell down at His feet and worshipped Him .
That day, he was freed . ”
Adeboye told the story of a wealthy woman who would always vomit her food after eating.
According to him , the woman visited many physicians but could not get her healing as doctors said that she was absolutely normal .
As she was shouting Allelluyah at the church in Ebute Meta many years ago, she vomited a worm and her problem was over .
“ If you wait on God , you can fly over the mountain of death .
In 2 nd Kings , Chapter 2 , 9 – 11 , Elijah went to heaven by whirlwind.
When prayer fails , try praise.
Wait on Him, please Him , sing His praise , thank Him for what is done, praise Him for who He is and you are likely to make it to the rapture, ” Adeboye said .
