GENERAL Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, says he’s alive, adding that God knows he’s dependent on Him alone.
He made the declaration Saturday night at the 3×3 Auditorium on the occasion of the 71st Annual Convention of the mission which started August 7 and ends morning of August 13, 2023.
Delivering his message at the Holy Communion Service, he said that at 12noon on Saturday, some hours after he had led the mammoth crowds to pray to God to kill him if he had any connection with the devil, one of his children called him to find out if he was still alive.
Beaming with smiles and freshness, Daddy G.O, as he’s fondly called, said: “one of my children phoned me around 12 noon saying he wanted to be sure I’m alive.
“I told him ‘I’m alive!’ God didn’t kill me overnight. The One Who knows everything knows that I rely on Him alone.
“And since I didn’t die and you’ve prayed for me that God should empower me in seven folds, get ready for miracles.”
Stonix News reports that the octogenarian put his life on the line after some supposedly fake prophets had gone to the social media to accuse him of consulting with some demons at the Redemption City to perform miracles.
Speaking on Friday night during the convention’s Holy Ghost Service, the renowned cleric said it was expedient for him to put paid to the accusation, hence the call on the virtual and actual gatherings to ask God to kill him if he’s guilty or empower him in seven folds if otherwise.
Meanwhile, as of Saturday night, no fewer than 84 babies, comprising 46 girls and 38 boys, had been born so far during the convention.
