You can launch the app by tapping on the Notifications which were recieved from friends messaging you and launch the app and amke sure that you do not close the app and keep it running in the background so that you can use it when ever you wish to.
Closing the App will not let you use launch it again and you will be getting the same error once again until you get a notification which can let you use the app.

Just Slide your Home Screen to the left side which will show you the notifications or Whatsapp messages which were sent to you and tap on it to launch Whats App and make sure that you are not closing this application, if you close it the same error will come and you have to wait for a message to use the application.
