Angered by the growing violent crimes across the nation, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, declared ‘holy war’, when he led the congregation, at the May Holy Ghost Service, against kidnappers and killer-herdsmen.

Just before his sermon, held under the theme, Victorious Grace, Adeboye led the mammoth crowd, that included Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, to  pray  against the  shedding of blood and  kidnapping across the country.

“Our weapons of war are not carnal, but they are mighty for the pulling down of strongholds”, he said. And the congregation responded: “No more kidnapping; no more shedding of innocent blood all over the nation.”

The three prayer points, in apparent response to the  menace of herdsmen and kidnapping, include: “Father, anyone planning to shed innocent blood, send down your fire to consume them all; Father, anyone who has kidnapped or is planning to kidnap as we are praying, set fire wherever he/she may be now. Enough is enough; Father, beginning from now, let things begin to get better in Nigeria!”

Adeboye, in his message, outlined some of the cardinal ingredients to attract victorious grace to include an insatiable desire to win souls for the kingdom.

Addressing the church’s army of workers, the General Overseer urged them specifically to intensify efforts to win more souls forGod’s Kingdom especially because the parish pastors have been mandated to increase their membership by 100 per cent or risk losing their jobs.
