The outgoing General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has revealed how God used a witch to save his life when he was young.
Adeboye, in a Thanksgiving and Prophetic Declaration Service at the national headquarters of the church, Throne of Grace Parish in Ebute-Meta, Lagos, said that God used the witch to prevent him from eating kola nut which would have led to his death.
In a sermon entitled: “God Loves Me” the clergyman attributed his continued survival to God’s faithfulness and love.
According to the former lecturer, “I was telling my children that whenever we wanted to study at night while we were young, we used kola nut as our own coffee as we did not have money to buy coffee. We ate the kola nut to stay awake.
“One day, the number one self confessed witch in our compound, called me and said: “Dejare, why won’t you stop eating kola nut?
” The witch warned me to desist from what can lead to my death. I think God spoke through the witch and I can say God loves me.
“You are alive today not because you are clever, wise or know how to do it but simply because God loves you. There are lots of people who are in the prison who are free. I was at the Kirikiri Prison where I heard testimonies that brought tears to my eyes.
“Some of them said they were in prison but they are free men because they have Jesus; they were incarcerated but they are free. And there are people who are outside the prison who are prisoners.
“It is because God loves you that you are able to conquer all that the devil threw at you last year. Left for the enemy you, will not be here today but because God loves you, you are more than conqueror.”
