The General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Ps. Mensa Otabil has tagged the coronavirus as a huge enemy to mankind.

According to Otabil, God will provide nourishment for his people in the presence of the enemy in these times of coronavirus.

Preaching during the virtual communion service the Global Media Alliance Group (GMA) media assets on Sunday, he said, “I have titled my sermon, ‘A Table in the Presence of my Enemy’. Have you ever been in the presence of someone who hates you? Imagine being in the presence of a hungry lion, how helpless it makes you feel. Covid-19 is a huge enemy but just as the Bible says in Psalm 23:4-6, He will prepare a table before us in the presence of our common enemy”.

The preacher man also explained the word ‘prepare’ in biblical context.

"Prepare is an interesting word, it means something that is set, something that is read. It takes foresight to prepare, meaning God is intentional about what He is doing for you in this season. A table is a metaphor for an elaborate formal meal (banquet) before you. The table doesn’t just appear, while the enemy is in the shadows God is present’’ he stated.

He used what it means in the days of David when God set a table before a sheep to give clarity to the virtual congregation about his sermon.
