Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has warned individuals who idolise him to desist from doing so.
Emphasising that he is not God but an ordinary man, the cleric said those who idolise him put him in danger with God, as God will not share his glory with any man.
Adeboye during the day five of the Holy Ghost Congress, held on Friday night at 3 kilometre, new auditorium in Shimawa, Ogun State, warned the congregation to stop buying materials bearing his picture or that of his wife.
He advised them to report those making merchandise of his picture and that of his wife, to the police.
Noting that he is God’s favourite child, he stated that: “I am not dying yet, whether the devil likes it or not I’m not going anywhere yet.”
During the sermon: “Glory Ahead”, he urged individuals not to despair but to be encouraged because divine help is on the way, especially for those who uphold righteousness.
“‘Glory Ahead’ is a prophetic theme and it generates hope. It is telling you don’t lose hope, after all it is written ‘say yea to the righteous, it shall be well with him’.
“Glory ahead is encouraging, showing that help is on the way. Don’t despair, glory ahead is comfort.
“Glory is in the future, though not necessarily far. If God says your glory is ahead, it shows that the future will be better, because the glory of the latter will be greater than the former,” he stated.
Pastor Sunday Adelaja has been on a mission to expose and discourage the wrong practice of idolizing Pastors, especially the prominent ones in Nigeria and Africa as a whole. He has made several videos on his Facebook, and youtube Pages, to make this correction.
Many Christians received his message with joy while many others have wrongly criticized him and accused him of sowing division and hate. He is however elated to hear Pst. Adeboye make the same plea to his members. His said
THIS IS A VINDICATION OF MY POSITION AND THE REVOLUTION WE STARTED. IF I AM HE ONE WHO SAYS THAT REDEEMED MEMBERS ARE WORSHIPING ADEBOYE, THEY WILL SAY I AM ABUSING THEIR PAPA. NOW THEIR PAPA IS CONFIRMING OUR WORDS. HOPE THEY WILL HEAR…”
