Erstwhile General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye recently revealed how God used a witch to prevent him from eating kolanut which would have killed him.
While delivering a sermon titled “God Loves Me” during the annual thanksgiving service and prophetic declaration at the church national headquarters, Throne of Grace parish in Ebute-Meta, Lagos,Daddy GO attributed his continued survival to God’s faithfulness, and love, saying those whom God loves are more than conquerors.
“I was telling my children that whenever we wanted to study at night while we were young, we used kola nut as our own coffee as we did not have money to buy coffee. We ate the kola nut to stay awake.
“One day, the number one self confessed witch in our compound, called me and said: “Dejare, why won’t you stop eating kola nut? The witch warned me to desist from what can lead to my death. I think God spoke through the witch and I can say God loves me,” Adeboye stated.
Continuing, the cleric said: “You are alive today not because you are clever, wise or know how to do it but simply because God loves you. There are lots of people who are in the prison who are free. I was at the Kirikiri Prison where I heard testimonies that brought tears to my eyes. Some of them said they were in prison but they are free men because they have Jesus; they were incarcerated but they are free. And there are people who are outside the prison who are prisoners.
“It is because God loves you that you are able to conquer all that the devil threw at you last year. Left for the enemy you, will not be here today but because God loves you, you are more than conqueror,” Daddy G.O. said.
He finally admonished Christians that God expects those He loves to respond by honoring Him with their tithes and first fruits and love their neighbors, noting that the greatest gift Christians can give their neighbors is introducing them to Christ.
Daddy GO recently stepped down from his post recently, after many years at the helm of building arguably the biggest christian congregation in Nigeria.
