Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God.
Nigerian Christians have been praying that God suspend prophecies of calamities that were to befall the country in year 2020.
General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye led the congregation at a special session in the February Holy Ghost Night held at the Redeemed camp in Lagos last weekend for God to rend the Heavens to Nigeria.
Although he had prophesied that there would be tremendous fire outbreaks, flood disasters, earth tremor and other heart rending calamities throughout the world during the cross over service, the cleric said Nigeria was part of the world and what we have been seeing happen within January 2020 alone throughout the world necessitated an appeal to Heaven to change expected happenings to Nigeria because Nigeria has no equipment to contain the disasters.
He told the congregation which included the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Pastor Yemi Osibajo to pray for mercy adding that “ we can ask our Father to please reverse the things He said would happen to us. E sanu wa Olorun”, he spoke in his dialect meaning have mercy on us, O God.
Pastor Adeboye said Government told us a minor earth tremor, which is the junior brother of earthquake, happened in Abuja the nation’s capital this January. The said he, “If the ocean comes into Lagos, where will the Lagos people go to? How can we cope? We do not have the equipment to fight ocean surge in Nigeria”.
He argued for the umpteenth time that he is not a prophet but a Pastor. Pastors do not care if their prophecies come to pass but prophets watch to see their prophecies come to pass but he has to lead Nigerian Christians to appeal for Heaven to change the course of things because Nigeria cannot cope with the revelations he has of the pending disasters.
The globally respected cleric who turns 78 years old next month had joined the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) to lead his mega church in protest march over insecurity in Nigeria especially the wanton killings of Christians as he personally carried a placard reading, “A soul is precious to God”.
The Federal Government of Nigeria had reacted expressing sympathy with the killings but President Muhammadu Buhari had argued that over 90 percent of those killed were Muslims, a reaction which was deemed to be unrepentant by the Christian community of Nigeria who challenged him to lay bare the source of his claims.
Since the protest marches conducted throughout the country, the Federal Government had called Security Chiefs to meetings at the Villa; the National Assembly had closed door meeting with the Inspector General of Police but is yet to react to the Adeboye claim that Government has no equipment to contain pending disasters despite the existence of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).
