Adeboye, who was speaking at the Northern Nigeria’s Ministers and Workers’ Conference of the Church on Sunday in Jos, warned those opposed to peace in the country against incurring the wrath of God.
According to him, God will “consume all those who are opposed to peace in Plateau and Nigeria, if they refuse to repent.’’
The cleric, who prayed for peace in Plateau and the country at large, said that the state was special to God for His missions in the country.
He said that Nigerians should not be frightened by the rage, fury and devises of the enemies, but should “watch and pray for the Lord God is always with you all.’’
“There are precious promises we have not yet seen, until we encounter some problems, difficulties and pressure.
“That is when we will begin to see the promises and the mighty work of God manifesting over our lives,’’ he said.
Adeboye said that God was with the Israelites and that the promise to them was fulfilled in spite of the trials and difficulties they encountered on the way.
Speaking at the event, Gov. Jonah Jang said: “Plateau is no longer helpless with Pastor Adeboye’s visit,’’ adding that it signified that the contest against the state had been settled in its favour.
“God Himself is stepping into the land and Plateau is no longer helpless. The troubled and bitter waters are now healed and turned into sweet waters, and peace will never depart from the land again.”
Represented by his Permanent Secretary on Security, Mr Istifanus Gyang, Jang said that Plateau was a pleasant land chosen by God but was being contested by evil powers resulting in incessant bloodshed.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Adeboye was in Plateau for the Annual Northern Nigeria’s Ministers and Workers’ Conference of the Church.
The conference was attended by thousands of Christian faithful from the 19 Northern states and Abuja. (NAN)
