Pastor Adeboye Shuns Calls To Quit

Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God who turned 70 this year, has shunned the call from the Europe-based pastors of the church to relinquish the post of the General Overseer.

It was alleged that about 20 pastors from the branches of the Church in Europe met with the revered man of God in his International office at Redemption Camp, KM 46, Lagos/Ibadan Expressway, Mowe, Ogun State, to advise him to resign so that a younger pastor could be appointed to head the church.

The reason given by these ambitious men of God was that since Pastor Adeboye has clocked 70 years, it is normal for him, according to what obtains in the church, to retire.

The pastors cited the case of the four Assistant General Overseers of the church, Pastors M.O. Ojo, Ilori, Aderibigbe and D. Ojo, whose retirements were announced at the conclusion of Minister Conference on Sunday, August 8, 2010.

Investigation by P.M.NEWS, however, revealed that Pastor Adeboye could not retire from the position of the General Overseer of the church yet, as the position is not political.

A leading member of the church who spoke with P.M.NEWS this morning said it is God who will nominate the successor to the office when the time comes.

Our source, who did not want his name mentioned, said further, “the founder of the church, Pa Josiah Oluwafemi Akindayomi, did not appoint a successor because he was 70, rather, the successor, Pastor Adejare Adeboye was appointed when the time came for him, the founder, to go and meet with the Lord.’

A pastor of the church (name withheld) wondered how some people could be thinking that way, “when all of us are seriously praying to God to grant our father (Pastor Adeboye) long life, good health and strength to continue the good work he’s doing for the Lord.”

He further said the position of the General Overseer of the Church is not for the highest bidder or the most erudite pastor; rather, it is God who will appoint the most qualified pastor when it is time.

Pastor Adeboye had told his faithful in one of the services not too long ago that his successor is still in drinking joint, that is, the fellow is yet to give his life to Christ or he is still a baby Christian.

    MY OWN SUGGESTION IS THAT BABA ADEBOYE SHOULD CONTINUE THE GOOD WORK THAT THE LORD HAS SENT HIM TO DO UNTILL WHEN GOD DECIDED TO CALL HIM TO REST. MORE GREASE TO YOUR ELBOW BABA ADEBOYE.

    Can anyone lead if the Almighty does not give him the mandate? Man can not comprehend d way of God with human brain.

    Those Pastor are ruled by the flesh, greed and inordinate ambition to acquire wealth. They may as well be praying for the Man of God, to quickly go to glory so that they would manipulate the administration of the ministry. GOD FORBID. DADDY, YOU WOULD LIVE LONG TO WITNESS THE RAPTURE, IN JESUS NAME.

    We should be very careful of these western Pastors, no one can tell their plan if they hav being infiltrated by illuminati or any other devilish vice. Redeemed Christian Church is strong and rooted in God’s ways lets not allow the devil to pull it down.

    God av mercy on our conveteous pastors in RCCG. It’s only God dat can make a king likewise its only God dat can ordain nd anoint a G.O. My advice is dat those pastors nd their young pastors should wait 4 their own turn of God’s ordination nd anointing.

    My advice is that pastor adeboye should increase his security details. Pray harder to God as this people are not pastor but businessmen. Stop eating outside and drinking outside.

    Aiye toto.

    THOSE PASTORS FROM EUROPE SHOULD BE
    CAREFUL, OTHERWISE THEY WOULD HAVE GOD
    TO FIGHT WITH.

    TO EVERY RULE THERE IS ALWAYS AN EXCEPTION.
    THE ISSUE OF G.O. IS AN EXCEPTIONAL ISSUE.
    THEREFORE,DADDY G.O.(PASTOR E.A.ADEBOYE) DOES NOT HAVE TO RETIRE.
    THE FORMER G.O. SERVED UNTIL HE DIED.

    The Church should rejoice: as the “Pastoral-Judhas” of thhe Church hath been thus revealed by self-exposure; and now Man of God can be at peace until when the time cometh at God’s own-chosen time…to step up—!

    PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BRING THE JUDGEMENT OF GOD UPON THEMSELVES. THIS SUGGESTIONS COULD CAUSE THESE SO CALLED AMBITIOUS PASTORS TO REBEL AGAINST THE G.O. WHICH MAY LEAD TO THEIR UNTIMELY DEATH. PLS BE WARNED IF U RE AMONG THE REBEL
