A Bible scholar and leader of the 7th Day Pentecostal Assemblies located at Atonsu-Esereso a suburb of Kumasi-Ghana, Elder Enoch Ofori Junior in an interview with ayamultimedia said, the only principal antidote or remedy to the novel coronavirus is fervent prayers couple with protocol observations.
The world pandemic virus, he said, have claimed thousands of lives globally without a clear cut remedy indicate how dangerous the virus is, requires strict compliance because the virus behaves so differently in every country making it difficult for scientist to discover vaccine. And the only thing we can do as Christians is to go onto our knees and ask Jesus Christ to intercede for us.
Elder Ofori stressed that covid-19 is not the first world pandemic disease to have caused havoc to humanity. All that is happening is a manifestation of God’s messaging about the signs of the end result and covid-19 not exceptional, hence the need for us as Christians to seek for divine intervention.
‘’The unseen virus is proving not to unleash the world very soon due to ungodly behaviors and uncultured attitudinal life-style associated with mankind in this 21st century. Some part of the world is provoking God with new generational beliefs where gay and lesbianism is practising in some of these countries globally’’.
The coronavirus and it protocols of quarantine, washing of hands under-running water, social-distances and isolation is biblical guidelines in the Bible …quoting Leviticus 13; 1-4 ‘’The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, 2 “When anyone has a swelling or a rash or a shiny spot on their skin that may be a defiling skin disease, they must be brought to Aaron the priest or to one of his sons who is a priest. 3 The priest is to examine the sore on the skin, and if the hair in the sore has turned white and the sore appears to be more than skin deep, it is a defiling skin disease. When the priest examines that person, he shall pronounce them ceremonially unclean. 4 If the shiny spot on the skin is white but does not appear to be more than skin deep and the hair in it has not turned white, the priest is to isolate the affected person for seven days.
He noted that covid-19 has no friend and no political colour thus admonishing politicians not to incriminate the virus with politics but rather contribute their individual quota towards curbing the virus. Adding Christians especially heads of the churches should also commit the nation into fasting and prayers to seek God’s favour on the land of Ghana.
