There will be many baby naming ceremonies in early 2021, as a result of the coronavirus lockdown, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, said today.

Adeboye made the prediction in a live TV sermon to mark the end of May.

He said a lot of great things will come out of the lockdown.

He thus warned pastors to be ready to start naming babies from next year. .


Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), on Sunday said Christians should rejoice during the lockdown.

He said: “let me warn pastors, now I’m busy you are resting. Early next year you will be very busy.

“As a result of the lockdown you will have a lot of baby naming ceremonies.

“David, Elijah, Joseph, and some others became great during a lockdown.”

He, therefore, added that the best thing to do during a lockdown is rejoice, praise God, study the Bible and pray.

“Visions usually come during lockdown. Plan towards actualising the vision and when you finish planing you need to hand it over to God.”

He also said God told him not to worry about persons who died due to coronavirus.

According to him, God allowed it because he wants to prove that he is the Almighty, hence the low COVID-19 deaths recorded globally.

The cleric said, “God said I should not worry about those who will die due to coronavirus.

“Ain’t you amazed at the number of people who have been recovered compared to the number of those who died? All over the world the number of those who died is less than 10 percent.

“If you research, you will know that the number of people who have died due to coronavirus is lesser than those who have died because of accident or other means.

“This is because God just wanted to prove himself that he is the almighty that he can lockdown the whole world.
