‘Ignore election prophesies’ – Adeboye Tells Congregation (VIDEO)

Must read

Enoch Adeboye, the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, has urged members of his church to get their PVC ready and prepare to vote their choice leader as God directs them while saying that God has not yet told him or anyone who the winner of the election will be.

The revered cleric made the disclosure at the January 2023 Holy Ghost Service of the RCCG during his sermon titled: “Wonderful” on Thursday, January 5, 2023.

He explained that people cannot be deceived when they begin to hear from God for themselves, the revered man of God said any prophet who says God has revealed who will win the 2023 presidential election is a liar.

Adeboye’s words: “Prophecies are good, particularly if they come from God. There are some funny people in Nigeria who call themselves prophets. They don’t even know the meaning of prophecies. I’m not a prophet but I know how the way God speaks because he talks to me once in a while; I’m a pastor I’m satisfied with that office.

“But when somebody says he’s prophesying, and he says three people are contesting for a post, that if the first person wins, there will be plenty of food, if the second win, there will be plenty to drink and if the third win there will be a lot to wear, this is not prophecy, that is conjecture.

If God is the one speaking, he will tell you there are three people contesting and this is the one who will win. That is the way God talks, there is no ifs or maybe”

He furthered, “Let me tell you one thing. This is for your ears only. Anyone who is prophesying now, telling you this is the fellow who will win, is deceiving you.

“You know why? Daddy has not spoken yet. He hasn’t said anything. So, if you say somebody released a prophecy, saying somebody from this place is the [winner], na lie o”.

Pastor Adeboye said he cannot disclose the winner of the 2023 presidential election yet because God has not revealed it to him yet.

“How can I tell you what He hasn’t told me?” Adeboye questioned rhetorically, adding “you want me to lie to you?”

He, however, charged members of the church gathered at the old auditorium of the RCCG located along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway to get their permanent voter’s cards (PVCs) ready for the elections.

“Get your PVC ready. If He doesn’t say anything, when it is time to vote, vote as the Spirit of God would direct you. If He tells me, well, I may tell you; I may not.

“That is why you must let Him come into you so you can hear from Him directly and nobody would be able to deceive you anymore,” Pastor Adeboye said.

‘For the first 18 years of my life, I had no shoes’ – Pastor Adeboye Reveals Struggles With Poverty

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, on Sunday, December 25, 2022, narrated how he came from a very poor background.

In his Christmas message to his congregation, Adeboye recalled that while growing up, his parents were so poor that he had no shoes for the first 18 years of his life.

The revered cleric spoke during a sermon on Saturday, December 24, 2022, themed ‘Perfect Gift’, aired live on his Facebook page and monitored by Channels Television.

Speaking about how things would change for the better for people who have accepted Christ, the RCCG cleric used himself as an example. He illustrated how God can change the poor into the rich.

“Those of you who knew a little bit about my background, you will know that when they say something is from a rocky start, that means he started in serious poverty. My own rock was rock among rocks. My father was so poor, (that) poor people called him poor. The day he bought an umbrella, we were rejoicing,” Adeboye said.

“The elders have a saying. They say if there is hardship in the life of the husband, and hardship in the life of the wife, the hardship will rub off on the children.

“It rubbed off on me. For the first 18 years of my life, I had no pair of shoes. That is how things were and then I received Jesus Christ. Then things began to change, look at me today.

“Way back to 1969, I was a lecturer in the University of Lagos. A little problem came into my life, the problem that all my mathematics couldn’t solve, and then somebody offered me, Jesus. I thank God today that my head didn’t refuse something good. So I accepted Jesus and everything in my life began to change for the better.”

Nigeria has the highest number of poor people in the world, after overtaking India in March 2022.

According to data by the World Poverty Clock, extremely poor people are those living on N800 per day (less than $2 per day).

In 2018, Nigeria held the position with about 87 million people in extreme poverty, compared with India’s 73 million.

However, the new data revealed that about 83 million Indians have been plunged into extreme poverty in 2022, representing six percent of the country’s population which stands at 1.3 billion.

For Nigeria, WPC said 70 million people are living in extreme poverty, representing 33 percent of Nigeria’s over 200 million people.
