Leke Adeboye gifts worshippers fuel and food to ease current hardship

Published

Pastor Leke Adeboye, son of the general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has donated fuel to some churchgoers as the removal of fuel subsidy bites deeper into incomes.

Adeboye, who is also the lead pastor at the RCCG, LSC The Bridge in Ikeja, Lagos, made the donation on Sunday.

According to a statement on Tuesday, the move was to assist the worshippers amid the hike in the price of premium motor spirit.

The statement read, “It was an unusual church service on Sunday for many members of the LSC The Bridge: one of the RCCG’s vibrant youth churches led by Pastor Leke Adeboye.

“With the fuel price hike and cost of living crisis hitting hard on many Nigerians, Pastor Leke and the head of Christian Social Responsibility for the RCCG Youth Province 1, Lagos State, came up with a brilliant initiative to support church members.

“Over 1,000 litres of fuel were contributed to support anyone who came to church on Sunday with their vehicle.”

The move was also described as a way of empowering young people and taxi drivers who used their cars for businesses and relied on them for their daily upkeep and expenses.

“They all drove in their cars and had their tanks filled with petroleum or diesel. In addition to this, over 500 people also had their bodies fuelled with good food.

“It was an essential Christian social responsibility move needed for such a time as this,” the statement added.

After the programme, the pastor said: “You cannot use God’s fuel to do illegal things, use the fuel wisely.”

Jesus never raised the dead nor healed the sick, says Majid in sermon

According to the Ghanaian actor, Jesus Christ never personally healed any sick person nor raised the dead, despite these acts being widely credited to the Son of God according to biblical teachings.

Citing some of the known miracles attributed to Jesus Christ, Majid said, “Do you know Jesus never healed the sick nor raised the dead? Jesus never let the blind see.”

Explaining his point of view to a cheering congregation, he continued, “Do you know what Jesus said? ‘I do nothing by myself. As I see the Father do, I do. In other words, I am Jesus, I have a will, but I will not use my will; only the will of my Father I came to do.’”

Referencing the moment Satan tempted Jesus in the Bible, he added, “If the devil had gotten Jesus to turn that stone to bread without asking his Father’s permission, he had gotten him to sin and that is what you call sin—separation from God, independence from God.”

In the video posted on his Instagram page, he concluded, “When you throw your own plans and make your own decisions without consulting the Father, you have sinned.”

No amount of prayer and fasting can fight sexual temptation, says Adeboye

Published

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said he is still wary of sexual immorality despite his ‘anointing’ and years in the ministry.

Adeboye said despite his age, he runs faster than before to avoid any form of sexual temptation, noting that no amount of anointing can fight such temptation.

The cleric also warned ministers of the gospel to be wary of sexual immorality and the erroneous belief that their ‘anointing’ could help them withstand any temptation.

He stated these during a sermon at the just concluded Ministers & Workers Conference of RCCG Americas 1, which consists of North, Central & Caribbean with the theme: “The Glory Ahead”.

During the sermon shared on his YouTube page on Friday, Adeboye noted that Samson, who was a judge in Israel, fell into sexual immorality despite the anointing over him.

He said, “Somebody says, at your age, why are you still running? I run faster than before because the closer you get to the finishing point, the more careful you must be.

“Some of you can say, ‘Daddy, what are you saying, are you still running?’ I run fast.

“‘With all your anointing?’ Does anointing turn your body to stone? Samson was anointed. Single-handedly, he killed a thousand soldiers. A woman finished him. I hope the boys are listening.

“You can say, ‘Is anybody still interested in an 82-year-old man?’ She is not interested in you but interested in putting an end to all the great works God has done through you.

“You see that woman smiling at you everywhere you go, she is there smiling, and she is not your wife, run.”

Adeboye also counselled youths to be careful of lust, urging them to run away from anything that looks like sin.

He added, “And you girls, when you see a boy smiling at you saying, ‘Where have you been all my life? It looks as if the sun has just come out.’

“He is calling you sunshine. By the time he finishes with you, you won’t even know the difference between sunshine and sunset. You may laugh but mark my words.

“I do warn my children, particularly the boys. I said if the devil comes against you, tell the devil to get lost, but when you see a girl smiling at you in a funny way, run because you can’t win the battle.

“Didn’t you read a report that a man committed an offence about 42 years ago, and now his ministry is finished? Anybody who tells you that whatever you do is hidden, it’s hidden until the wind begins to blow.

“The Bible says, flee youthful lust. It did not ask you to say grace would be sufficient. There is no grace for what God says you should run from. Maybe grace to run.”
