Adeboye warns critics, says his ‘God is a consuming fire’



Pastor Enoch Adeboye

Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has warned those who criticize and mock him to tread with caution. The cleric said those who do such things end badly.

Adeboye mentioned that though he is nothing and weak, those mocking him and the mission should know that his “God is a consuming fire.”

He reminded his detractors that the Bible made it plain that anybody God uses must be stupid, helpless, and unimportant so that no one will take the credit.

Remember that a number of celebrities and television personalities have been criticizing Adeboye for some of his statements and remarks?

Adeboye made the remarks during his sermon and annointing service at the monthly Holy Ghost service. It was held on the theme “Shielded by Fire” at The Redemption City of God.

Adeboye said, “If Paul, who wrote more than half of the New Testament, claimed to be less than the least of the saints, according to Ephesians 3:8, Pastor Adeboye is nothing.

“However, his God is everything. Listen to me carefully. Adeboye is one stupid boy, and I will prove it to you before I close. But his God is wiser than the wisest.

“Adeboye is weak; he eats pounded yam and goes to the toilet. But his God is stronger than the strongest. Adeboye is nothing, but his God is the all-sufficient God.

“So there is nothing spectacular. There is no big deal if you mock Pastor Adeboye. He deserves to be mocked.

“The word of God made it abundantly clear. Anyone that God will use must be weak, foolish, and a nobody, so that only God will take the glory. So you can mock Adeboye, but you must not mock his God.

“Why? Because Adeboye is nothing, there is nothing he can do to you. But his God is a consuming fire.”

Furthermore, the cleric asked his members a series of questions.

“I want to ask you some questions. The fact that the leaders of Boko Haram are Muslims or claim to be Muslims does not mean every Muslim is a terrorist.

“Because one Islamic cleric said they should kill our first lady, does that mean every Imman is a murderer?

“There was this guy called Hushpuppi, the fellow who was the original 419 man that was arrested in Dubai. He happens to be a Nigerian; does that mean every Nigerian man is a 419?

“If a pastor and his wife do something insensitive somewhere, does that mean every pastor everywhere is insensitive?

“Then what about this pastor somewhere in Ireland? They said he committed all manner of atrocities. How will you explain that?

“Number one, the way they reported it in Nigeria is different from the way it is reported where it happened.

“Over there, they said “a former pastor.” Meaning he used to be. But put that one aside.

“They didn’t tell you the whole story; they did not tell you that they did not catch the boy. But he reported himself, and why did he report himself? He heard a sermon on restitution and decided it was better to suffer shame while here on earth than to go to hell.

“And where did he hear that sermon? In the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG). We are among the few churches left in the world that ever talk about restitution.”
