How God saved me from Abacha’s hit men, and something happened following Monday – Pastor Adeboye (VIDEO)
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Saturday morning narrated how God delivered him from the claws of former Nigerian military Head of State, late General Sani Abacha, without any human intervention.
Speaking in the early hours of Saturday during the annual Holy Ghost Congress 2016 of the church tagged ‘Complete Restoration’, the clergyman who chose not to mention the name of the former military ruler, narrated how the late Head of State made plans to “remove” him in the wake of his (Abacha’s) planned translation from military ruler to a civilian leader in 1997.
Delivering his sermon to the multitude of worshippers, which included the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and his wife; Governors Akinwunmi Ambode and Olusegun Mimiko of Lagos and Ondo States respectively, the man of God said the encounter is an example of great victory without a fight.
He said: “When you read 2 Chronicles 20:1-25, you will see the example of victory without a fight in the life of Jehoshaphat.
“You will remember those of you, who know the details; Nigeria was living under a siege at a particular time. There was a reign of terror by a military president who wanted to transform to a civilian president. And then his herbalist told him that this plan cannot come to pass because of a certain man who is praying at a place called Camp and unless you remove that man your plan won’t work.
“And so information came to me that they are coming for me and in those days when they come for you that is the end of the story.”
“As an ordinary human being when I heard that I was troubled. I didn’t tell my wife, but I got out for my prayer walk but it wasn’t an ordinary prayer walk that day.”
“I’ve just been praising God for a while before I prayed when God spoke to me and said hey son don’t worry yourself I will take care of the situation.”
“It was a Tuesday of the week of the Holy Ghost Service and Daddy said to me, son, soon as your children gather ask each one to greet his fellow and say happy new year. In June! I came, because I know His voice, He’s my Commander in Chief I announced it to the people. Crazy as it may sound. I said go ahead greet one another happy new year. They didn’t query me, they just greeted. By the following Monday, we knew why we were celebrating.”
