The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said there was a time he asked God to kill him if God will not empower him with enough anointing for his pastoral work.
The popular man of God made this statement in a message on a Thursday night, the fourth day of the ongoing 2016 Holy Ghost Congress holding at the Redemption Camp Ground of the RCCG, Ogun state, Nigeria.
Adeboye who is alive and kicking, while talking on the message “Before the Call,” said he told God sometime in the past that if God would not answer him, He should take his life.
“It is either you answer me or you call me home now,” Adeboye recounted he told God.
Adeboye, who said there is a difference between reading the Bible to write WAEC or NECO examinations, and reading the Bible as someone who knows God, said the more he studied the Bible, the more he understood God answers prayers.
In his message, the Bishop of The Redeem Evangelical Mission (TREM), Bishop Mike Okonkwo said the youths of the nation Nigeria are very strategic to make things happen in Nigeria and indeed the world.
Lamenting how the value system of the country has been eroded, Bishop Okonkwo called on the young adults to channel their youthful energy positively.
He said instead of youths to be distracted by the social media, he urged them to utilise the platform for positive engagements, and take over the world for Christ.
Adeboye rounded off his message with prophetic prayers for his congregants during the Holy Ghost Congress which started on Monday and ends on Saturday, 10 December 2016.
