–Pastor E.A Adeboye
Highly revered Man of God and General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, again, on Friday night, led a huge number of worshippers to declare war on all those who are shedding blood in Nigeria.
He led the large crowd of worshippers at the new 3 kilometre by 3 kilometre Arena, Old Arena, as well as numerous others in different viewing centers across the globe, and others watching on internet, to pray three Holy Ghost-anger-induced prayer points targeted at all those shedding innocent blood in different parts of the country. Adeboye was, however, not specific whether the prayer points were targeted at the incessant violent killing of innocent farmers in different parts of the country especially Benue, Taraba, Plateau, Nasarawa, Ekiti, Ondo and other states in the Southern part of Nigeria which has left several dead. When he took the microphone for the second message of February 2018’s Holy Ghost Service with a theme;
“Stronger than your enemies 2”, Adeboye used the occasion to explain why he has been silent over several violent eruptions in different parts of country, noting that as a man under authority, he relies on the leadership of the Church to speak for Christians in general. According to him, he has been receiving calls and text messages from people who want him to speak on the burning issues; he then said, “as a Christian, I belong to the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, which has a president and whatever the president says, that is what I have said.
“I am a Pentecostal and I belong to the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, and whatever the president of the fellowship says, that’s what I have said. That is how to be under authority. Amen.” Turning to members of RCCG who were present at the monthly Holy Ghost Service, including several political big wigs, he reminded them that as a trained mathematician who is a pastor by calling, he often finds it difficult to differentiate between the two vocations. “I am talking to my children and not Nigeria as it were. This is not a Press Conference. I am addressing my children. There are two sides of me: one side is a mathematician and the other is a pastor. Somehow, I can’t separate the two for long and so, before I ask you to pray I am going to spell out some equations which we will solve simultaneously, after which we will do what we should do.
