An Assistant General Evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church, CAC, worldwide, Prophet Timothy Abass Arabambi, has called on Nigerian leaders to declare National Day of Prayer and Fasting to seek divine intervention in tackling the ravaging coronavirus, COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
In a prophetic message to Nigerians, the clergy maintained that God has authority over the coronavirus, and therefore urged them, irrespective of religion, ethnicity and political differences as well as foreign nationals in the country to come together for prayer and fasting.
Prophet Arabambi, who is also the General Overseer, CAC Reformation Land, Ibadan, Oyo State, however stressed the need for everyone to continue to observe precautions necessary to prevent the virus spread.
“As a minister of God and a stakeholder in the joint project called Nigeria and the nation, I have a prophetic message to tell Nigerians and the nation, we should not abandon God, as, God would not abandon us, over the battles with the COVID-19 pandemic.
“But our leaders need to declare a National Day of Fasting and Prayer and seek the face of God, for forgiveness and mercy as stated in II Chronicles 7:14. Turning to the Lord should be our first response, not our last resort,” he stressed.
Prophet Arabambi also advised all religious leaders in the country to continue to pray for mercy and divine intervention, “because only God can put an end to this COVID-19, just as the Scripture says in Matthew 26:28.”
The cleric, who pointed out that God, needs an intercessor, somebody to stand in the gap for a people or a nation, added that “it is a fact from the scriptures that God would not intervene in the affairs of men, except and unless somebody stands in the gap as an intercessor for a people or nation.”
“Even if God will not get involved in our affairs, we must, to the extent, seek His face in prayer and fasting,” he advised, noting that “before God turns the captivity of a people or nation, something must go up in return, and that is the prayers of the saints.
“Our prayers give God the legal mandate to get involved in our case.
“In Philippians 4:6, the Bible tells us, ‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. His blood is enough to cleanse us of all diseases,” he further stressed.
Prophet Arabambi maintained that in times like this, prayer is most essential now to God, as, He, has the authority over everything -Isaiah 45:17
“I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity, I, the Lord, do all these things”. The prophet added that, we all need to know that happenings all over the world now, are signals of end time, as predicted by Christ,” he also quoted Mathew 24:3-13.
He further quoted 2 Corr. 5:7, “Don’t walk by sight, but by faith”, as it only takes a man with spiritual understanding to know the direction God is taking Nigeria.
The cleric assured that “the prayers of the saints offered throughout the country would not go in vain, as, God would heal our land, but, we really need to tow the path to genuine repentance, as, God will deal with the Pharaohs and Egyptians of our nation.”
“My word of encouragement to the nation and leaders is to be courageous, as coronavirus will soon become a thing of the past,” he added.
