THE General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye while advising Christians to stay connected to God to overcome life’s challenges and have dominion over all forces of darkness and sickness, revealed that he cannot be killed by anyone.
Adeboye while delivering his sermon tagged: ‘A branch of the Life’, on the second day of the ongoing annual Holy Ghost congress of the church holding at the Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, said thus:
“Jesus Christ is the vine while we are the branches. He is the combination of divinity and humanity. As the vine is, so also the branches. “If you are a true Christian, you are a combination of humanity and divinity. You are human but you are made to partake in God’s divine nature and He will supply the needed strength, power that you need to do His works.
As long as we are linked to him and connected to him we have the capacity to do all that he said we could do. “I once told my children that nobody can kill me because I am already dead. I have been crucified with Christ nevertheless I live. Because Jesus is living in the believer, his blood flows in the believer. On the outside it may not appear to be so, but in actual fact the blood that is flowing in you is the blood of Jesus.
Revelation 12:10-11, indicates that the blood has enough power to overcome the devil. If only you can believe, the blood that is flowing in you now can overcome any germ, virus or deadly thing,” he said. Adeboye noted that there are several things that science cannot explain because those things are not happening in the realm of humanity, they are happening in the divinity. Recalling how a doctor who was at the verge of death was healed by taking a Holy Communion, he said, “Whatever is called sickness or disease will be consumed by the Blood of Jesus.
Because Christ is in you and the Blood is flowing in your vein, sickness is not permitted in you.” The RCCG General Overseer, who said he just returned from a missionary trip to some West African countries, told the participants that they have the capacity to do what He could do because the same spirit that resides in Him also resides in them as long as they belong to Jesus. According to him, “you can from here go home and be healing the sick. The same capacity that I have you have as long as you yield yourselves to God,” stressing “the Bible did not say the signs will only follow the General Overseer but those who believe.
“Some also think they don’t have enough faith to do certain things. I used to believe that everything in the Bible is true but I believe I could not do those things because I did not have enough faith. Then I would fast and ask God to increase my faith. But the Lord sat me down one day and asked me some questions.
”He asked me, ’son, do you believe there is God?’ I said yes. ’Have you seen him before?‘ I kept mute. ’How then do you know there is God? Do you believe that Jesus is the son of God?‘ I said I believe and he asked were you there when he was born? I kept quiet and he kept on asking some other questions and said why are you then saying you don’t have faith?
“It takes strong faith to believe that there is God, that Jesus is the son of God and that He is coming again. If you believe those things, you have the faith you need to make the impossible happen,” Adeboye stated.
