Author and pastor John Hagee, 80, tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday, according to his son, Pastor Matt Hagee.
The younger Hagee informed the congregation of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, on Sunday that his father had contracted the virus.
"It was one, discovered very early; two, his medical team has him under watchful care; and three, he's feeling well enough to be frustrated with everybody in a white coat and a stethoscope," said Matt Hagee.
Matt Hagee went on to say that his father is asking for prayer, then leading the congregation in prayer for his father, for President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, and for all of those currently infected with the virus.
"As [coronavirus] is a reality in our lives, we also have a promise that we serve a God who is a Healer," Matt Hagee said.
🔦 John Hagee is known for his political activism, especially in regards to Israel, and his 2013 eschatological book on blood moons. Earlier this summer, he referred to COVID-19 as a "dress rehearsal for the new world order."
