GENERAL Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has charged all members of the church to help themselves by being obedient to every divine pronouncement. Warning members on the dangers of not paying their tithes and vows, he maintained that there are two houses—one is built on the Rock and the other is built on sand—both look alright and beautiful until there is a storm.
According to the man of God, at a time such as this when government find if difficult to pay workers’ salaries, God has a way of defending His own people. “Go back and tell your members to stop robbing God. Tell them not to fail in the payment of their tithes and vows. Pastor Enoch Adeboye “The reason you must pay your tithes and vows,” he stressed, “is that nobody knows when trouble will come. When trouble comes, God has a defence for His people, but such defence cannot be extended to those who are disobedient to His Word.” He therefore urged the pastors to ensure the message is delivered undiluted to the members of the church stressing that “God loves a cheerful giver and that they should make sure they do not owe or rob God.” Drawing inspiration from several biblical passages, Pastor Adeboye said: “Not only must they give to God cheerfully, they must at all time honour Him.”
According to him, members of the church must be reminded that Jesus Christ said His Father is greater than him and therefore no one can take His children from Me, emphasising that the father who protects the child of God can Himself tear the disobedient children away as a consequence of disobedience.
To stress the importance of his earlier warning during the Ministers Conference that preceded the convention, Pastor Adeboye re-emphasised that anyone who introduces tribalism into the mission will die a sudden, violent and premature death.
According to him, the church belongs to God and the moment one is born again, one automatically becomes a native of the Kingdom of God, noting that upon that realization, he has never asked anybody of his/her state of origin. He therefore re-echoed the warning which was first announced during the ministers conference, that anyone who introduces ethnicity into the church will die a sudden and premature death irrespective of the status of the person “because I have already prayed earnestly to God concerning the matter. “Tell all your friends that I’ve prayed a prayer that anyone, whoever, tries to introduce tribalism into RCCG shall die like Ananias and Sapphira died suddenly and prematurely; anyone including the G.O. himself,” Pastor Adeboye reiterated. For the benefit of those who did not attend the ministers conference, Daddy G.O. repeated the announcement of the promotions and the additional eight provinces that have just been created. Ekiti is now a Region of its own. On the new 3 kilometre by 3 kilometre auditorium currently under construction, he declared that God will build for all those who have in one way or the other contributed to the construction, urging the pastors to tell all those who have not done so, that God will not forget … read more
