Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting
GENERAL Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has given further details of why his wife, Folu, is so special to him.
Speaking at an event to mark his wife’s 75th birthday on July 13, the octogenarian rolled out heart-rending revelations of why he would pray for the death of any creature who messes with his wife.
He also, in his remarks, asked for mercy on behalf of a certain person alleging that he obtains demonic powers at the Redemption City to perform his miracles, describing it as a blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.
According to him, such a person is already doomed for ascribing the glory of the Holy Spirit to demons, “that fellow is not only doomed in this world, but in the world to come and that is what Jesus said.”
He admonished brethren to intercede for such benigh fellow to obtain mercy.
Read his remarks:
“He who finds a wife finds a good thing. Apart from the salvation of my soul and the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the best thing that God has done for me is to give me a good wife.
“What can I say about my wife that I have not said before? If you want to die, mess with my wife; I will kill you and it is as simple as that. I will kill you so thoroughly, you won’t even wake up on the resurrection morning!
“I’m not going to kill you with a gun, you will just sleep and not wake up and the doctors will call it heart attack. I will then tell God not to wait till the judgement day to send you to hell straight away.
“Every man has his red line. Recently I heard that somebody was saying that Pastor Adeboye is getting the power he uses from demons at Redemption Camp and some people were asking me if I won’t answer him.
“I told them that we should be praying because that man is committing an unpardonable sin. When somebody is beginning to give the glory of the Holy Spirit to demons, that fellow is not only doomed in this world, but in the world to come and that is what Jesus said.
“So when you hear somebody say that kind of thing, just pray for mercy for the person. So even Jesus Christ had his red line. He said if you sin against God the Father, you will be forgiven, God the Son, you will be forgiven but if you blaspheme the Holy Spirit, you will be finished. As rich in mercy as God is, if you cross that red line, you are done for.
“There have been all sorts of people who have been saying all sorts of things but they have been careful; they didn’t mess around with my wife; because if they do (laughs) you will read about it in the news.
“I love you, you are my children, and you are my friends as long as you don’t touch my wife. I can’t take that. You mess around with her, there’s no begging. You won’t even be around to do the begging and it is as simple as that.
“Apart from all the things I have been saying that we suffered together, among the people that were courting her, I was the poorest and all of those things, she was the one that was taking care of my mum when I was doing my postgraduate programme.
“Apart from that, there was a time I decided to fast because I faced challenges in my life and there was a particular one I know that was going to require fasting and prayer. So I decided to fast; I fasted for 40 days and nights and she was doing it with me.
“She is very kind, she knows it is not going to be easy so in order not to get me tempted, whenever she sees me fasting, she will be fasting. 40 days I fasted and prayed but the mountain remained.
“So I felt if those days will not solve the problem, let me go again and I started another 40 days and nights and she joined me and the mountain remained. I told her that I’m going to fast until the problem is solved and if God sees that I’m about to die, he will respond.
“So let’s reach an agreement: by the time we reach 40 days and 40 nights and the problem is not yet solved, you will break and I will continue and we agreed. Then, 40 days and nights came and the mountain was a little bigger than when we started (laughs).
“So I decided that I will continue and thanked her and asked her to rest but she told me that we will stop whenever I stop. I then told God “Solve the problem if you want to but I’m not going to lose my wife and I was compelled to break after 42 days because my wife said she’s not stopping unless I stop. That is the kind of woman that my wife is.
“When a man said he wants to spend the rest of his life with a woman and the woman is the one who says if you want to die we die together, then if you want to live you live together.
“So, if anyone sees the glory of God in our lives today and is upset, may God forgive such a person. If you see the glory and you don’t know the story, may God forgive you.
“Many of you have no idea what length she would go to especially when she sees that someone is down to see that that fellow is lifted. I thank God for that lady.
“One thing is certain if anyone is going to heaven, my wife is going and I know that. I’m able to stay in the prayer room praying during the convention because I know that whatever is going on out there, someone is looking out and putting things in place.
“Someone was asking me what the special name for my wife is. Stop trying to find out. I have a special name for her as she does for me that is why it is special, it is confidential.”
