The General overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Adeboye has lamented over the high rate of insecurity in the country, saying that henceforth “It’s fire for fire”
Speaking during the church’s Holy Ghost service, Adeboye said enough is enough.
Currently the country is going through it’s worse form of insecurity, from kidnapping to banditry, numerous attacks on every part of the country.
In his sermon, the preacher said the church would hold its 2022 convention in the second week of August.
“This programme is going to be different from the one you have known. Some people out of laziness have decided ‘Oh! I can watch everything on television.’ It’s good to watch on television; the programme will be televised throughout the world.
“But, as I told you if you are watching television and fire is burning, do you feel the heat. If you are watching television and the rain is falling, does your dress get wet”?
He further said people all over the world would attend the event and encouraged other members whom he tagged as “lazy members” to be part of it, urging them not to sit back to watch from the comfort of their homes.
The preacher said: “There are certain things television cannot transmit. Not at all. Glory be to God for television that can transmit across the world. Glory be to God. But when the Almighty God knows that it is out of laziness that you sat back at home, you will be hearing the testimonies of those who were present. There’s something called corporate anointing.
“The Bible says fire begets fire. There are certain things you get because you are there… Oh! Some jokers said churches should not open for three months. Who is your commander? God of Boko Haram? Let the devil try any nonsense, from now on, it is going to be fire for fire”!
Pastor Adeboye went ahead to say: “I understand that one funny fellow said some people were calling on Ogun because Jesus didn’t answer them. Well, for the one who said that there’s a saying that the mouth that the snail used to blaspheme God, that mouth will kiss the ground.
“From now on, anybody who dares blaspheme Jesus Christ will taste the fire of the Almighty God and you all know God’s fire doesn’t come with mercy over the wicked. Every enemy of the church, as far as Jesus is a consuming fire, if they don’t repent, the fire of God will consume them”.
“I don’t want to say much because I know whatever I say, be it good or bad, some people may want to twist it. I have searched the Bible from cover to cover and there is nowhere where God said a child of God cannot defend himself. If you find the place, let me know. He said that if they slap you on the right cheek turn left, He said that one. If they now slap the left what did he say? When God is silent, do you know the meaning of that, it simply means over to you”.
“That’s why I always and I’m now advising you to be ready because From now on is going to be fire for fire.
“I am only talking to my children. Only my children come to the Holy Ghost Service.”
Remember, in 2020, Pastor Adeboye led his church members on a protest over insecurity and serie killings in Nigeria.
Adeboye, who instructed his church members all over Nigeria to observe the walk, commenced the walk from Ebute Meta to Atan Cemetery in Yaba metropolis in Lagos State.
