”If Daddy GO had requested God to give him a private jet in 1998; the Lord of the universe could have provided five (5) jets at once. ”So, Daddy GO could be riding different jets Mondays through Fridays. But then the question is: How would Daddy GO maintain those jets if he was selfish and got all the divine blessings alone, without remembering his children who would have been poor today? ”Perhaps nobody will be supporting him like Aaron and Hur did to Moses; and like Redeemers are doing today. ”If the Holy Spirit didn’t lead Daddy GO to make that request, there is no way RCCG would have exploded in that manner today reaching all parts of the world. ”Daddy GO would most probably have sold all the jets by now, because there would be nobody or rich member to support RCCG financially.” — Femi Adelegan.
NIGERIA WELCOMES THE WORLD AS RCCG’s 2018 CONGRESS GETS SET TO TAKE OFF.
Come Monday December 3, 2018, the whole world will be gathered in Nigeria; precisely at the Redemption Camp New Auditorium Shimawa, Ogun State to celebrate Jesus Christ like has continued to happen by the special grace of God, through A Solomonic wisdom applied by just one man, who was not greedy or self conceited; by asking the Lord to bless his congregation instead of blessing him. The focus of Holy Ghost Services, Conventions and Congresses has since commencement been on Jesus Christ, the Author and Finisher of our faith, and not Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, through whom God is revealing Nigeria to the whole world this end time.
SOLOMONIC WISDOM, BLESSINGS & ENLARGEMENT
God commenced this divine move through Pastor Adeboye, the head of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide in 1998, when the man of God was divinely asked to choose a birthday gift by God. In his words, “I was in London preparing the Sunday school booklet for the mission when I heard from God. “He said, ‘Son, what do you want for your birthday?’ “I was shocked. “The reason I was shocked was that: I didn’t know God would be interested in my birthday. And secondly, I didn’t know He could be asking me for about what I wanted as a present. “So, I said, ‘Lord if that is you, please repeat the question.’ He assured me it was Him and asked again what I wanted as a birthday present.”
There are occasions when children of God are required by circumstances, to exercise great wisdom, especially in making difficult decisions where choices are involved and God, Who is the Wisest is involved. Adeboye replied God: “What I want is that all my members will get miracles. God responded: “Is that all?’ I replied: ‘That’s all I want.’’ Then God said, ‘In that case, when you get home, call them together and I will give them whatever they ask for. “I needed to call the service a name, so I asked Him. And He said: ‘Holy Ghost Service.’’
That is the source of the incredible expansion of the RCCG into 196 nations of the world; three more than the figure of countries that are currently accredited to the United Nations. The demographics of attendance, which confirm the spread of the church around the world in geometric proportions show that delegates attend from several African countries, Europe, the Americas, Australia, and the Far East.
THE MOVE OF GOD
Notably, past congresses have featured delegates from countries like Mongolia, Macao, Bangladesh, Thailand, Bahrain, and Peru. The important issue under focus is that those millions of participants are not in Nigeria to meet with Adeboye, but with the Creator, Who is bountiful in His mercies and grace. Pastor Adeboye is a mere vessel used by the Holy Spirit to release His diverse blessings, perform miracles and wipe tears off the faces of Hs people. At one of the past Congresses, speaker after speaker mounted the pulpit to speak glowingly about Pastor Adeboye who was in his prayer closet; preparing for the service. As soon as Adeboye mounted the podium, he announced that he was not the person due for all those flowery commendations, but God, without Whom NOTHING is possible.
He continued: ‘’Adeboye plus his Ph.D in Mathematics minus God is nothing; as it is only the Lord that determines which miracles would occur, and in what manner they would occur. As you prepare to attend, let your gaze be on Jesus Christ, if you don’t want to leave the RCCG Camp empty. The greatest Restorer is Jesus Christ. Given the move at those meetings, it is possible to have a divine encounter like it occurred on the Mount of Transfiguration
The vision of the RCCG is simply fulfilling Jesus’ command to go ‘into the world and preach the gospel unto every creature. Before departing the world to go meet His Father, Jesus Christ commanded all to be his witness, starting from Judea, Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth. That is the simple intention of the RCCG that is driving its expansion agenda. It is important for people attending from all over the world to know that God is in charge and the Holy Spirit moves in incredible ways to answer petitions in a manner dictated not man, but the TRINITY.
Like the story of Abraham and his wife, Sarah, doubts could arise. But the Lord sometimes looks beyond our faith to bless us and do His wonders in our lives because of His mercy. Adeboye, in one of his ministrations pointed out that even Abraham, described as father of faith, doubted God when he fell on his face after God had told him his children would be as the stars; and Sarah laughed when the Lord told her she would have a son but God still went ahead to bless her.
NIGERIA — FULFILLING DIVINE AGENDA
One of the notable highlights of the move of God in Nigeria is that He has started fulfilling the agenda He spoke about long ago. At the 1983- National Prayer Conference Christians Students Social Movement in (CSSM) Port Harcourt, God in 1983, God, according to one of His priests, Steve Olumuyiwa : ‘’Spoke to us as we gathered in prayer in Port Harcourt, not even aware that the 1983 coup had taken place. “Son of man, say to Nigeria; though you have passed through the valley of the shadow of death, thus saith the Lord, you shall not die but shall live?’’
At the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International (FGBMFI) Held at Hotel Presidential in Port Harcourt, that legend, Revd S. G. Elton spoke prophetically in this meeting concerning two key African nations, saying that Africa is like a gun pointed down. Its turret and muzzle is South Africa. Its trigger is Nigeria. He said the days would come when Apartheid (then at its peak in South Africa) will be removed from South Africa. ‘’In those days, he said the Gun of Africa would begin to fire for God’s purpose’’. (That is Nigeria) He spoke further: ‘’Nigeria/
At the 1984 Ibadan Prayer Conference CSSM, God spoke again about Nigeria: ‘’A land covered with darkness in which there were groaning and cries with sparks of lights but needed a great light from heaven to blow away the darkness. ‘’It happened suddenly. ‘’It will happen suddenly. Steve Olumuyiwa, in his narration said: ‘’As we prayed here at a large gathering of many campuses at the Ibadan Polytechnic, the Lord spoke again during a very deep session of prayers, while most of us were on our face on the floor. The Lord spoke in prophecy saying: My Church in this nation, is my hope for the Continent of Africa.
A Prophecy recorded at the Core East Regional Conference, Onitsha, in January 1996 quotes God as stating that: ‘’Arise Oh Nigeria! Saith the Lord, Arise from the North, Arise from the South, Arise from the West, Arise from the East. The season of incubation is past. The day to hatch has come and I the Lord bring upon you a visitation, my marked visitation.? Even though you have not known me, yet I have chosen you. In this day I pass through your land in mercy to renew the face of the nations. Even though the nations are despising you, I have desired you as a place for my glory. Therefore, I the Lord have jealously watched over you to cause my purpose to be done. I have brought you to the valley of decision. There is no time to waste. Arise as a generation for, I have waited for you. I will desire of you genuine dedication. I the Lord will make my demands. But I seek to raise out of you a generation of men who will make my glory known in the ends of the earth.”
The prophecy continues: “I have purposed it, I will do it. But I ask you to arise. Arise in this day, there is no more time to wait. Arise, Arise, from complacency, Arise from ignorance. Know me the God of destiny. Know me the God of covenants. For I seek to exhibit you to the world. I have come. This day do I desire a commitment from you. I desire not to wait any longer. “My time has come and you shall labour in the nations to bring up children. Therefore, arise into this destiny for the world waits for you saith the Spirit of the Lord. The Lord says to Nigeria: I have given you a missionary spirit, and I am surely going to change the nations of the earth through you. ‘’But now I will give you the anointing to change your nation.”
In 2002, God spoke through an American female priest, Prophetess Cindy Jacobs who said: ‘’The Lord says: “I am going to begin to unravel the corrupt system in Nigeria and men will say it is impossible but I say with God all things are possible”. There is going to be a revival in the Universities and this revival is going to be of such a large magnitude, that the revival in the Universities will affect the secondary schools and will affect the primary schools. “And I am going to change Nigeria to the next generation says God. “And the Lord says the unity of the leaders is coming. It’s going to uproot and dethrone the occult. “For I’m going to overthrow the occult spirit. And I’m going to use Nigeria to heal the rest of Africa because what happens in Nigeria will affect the whole continent.”
She continued: ‘’The Lord says I’m going to use the Nigerians in Russia. There will be many churches planted in Russia. The Lord says I’m going to use your nation. I’m going to use you in the Middle East;,God say I’m getting ready to change many things. “I ’m getting ready to expose this occult in the highest level. In the next few months, I’m going to tear it down and I’m going to make it shift and there will be a day violence will no longer be heard of in the streets of Nigeria. ‘’And it will be one of the safest nations on the face of the earth says God. Halleluiah. God bless you and bless you”.
COME OVER TO NIGERIA
Whoever believes and knows how God works would have no doubt about the fact that He is moving through Nigeria and is set to do great and mighty things through the most populous black nation in the world. Peoples of the world, come over to Nigeria to have an encounter with God. Let us now consult the authority on the Word of God: Numbers 23:19 says: “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?’’ 1 Samuel 15:29: “Also the Glory of Israel will not lie or change His mind; for He is not a man that He should change His mind.” Hebrews 6:18 states most emphatically: ‘’So that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us; and lastly, Psalm 89:35: “Once I have sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David.’’
SUPPORT GOD’S MOVES
Instead of attempting to bring the work of God down, which is impossible, the best thing we could do is to pray for this commission that is healing the whole world. Let all Nigerians all over the world encourage people of other nations to visit Nigeria on religious tourism to attend the upcoming Congress. Because it is of God, it becomes impossible for anyone to bring this vision down. By the grace of God, I will participate in this year’s Holy Ghost Congress, pray for myself, pray for Nigeria and pray for other peoples of the world. Today, squeeze at least ten (10) minutes, irrespective of your religious affiliation, to pray for this RCCG prayer event, commissioned by God, that is revealing the hand of God upon Nigeria. May the Good Lord bless you as you strengthen the hand of the visioner.
I end with the Aaronic prayers in the Book of Numbers 6 for those who support God’s move in Nigeria: The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: 25 The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: 26 The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. 27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them” May God help us all.
