THE General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has revealed the secret of his outstanding breakthrough that has brought the church from obscurity to a global organisation.
Adeboye who told haters to stop searching for secret of his success said anybody who wants to get to the top, such a fellow must endeavour to have genuine relationship with God of wonders, listen to His instructions whether or not it is con-venient.
Speaking at the national headquarters of the church, Throne of Grace Pariish, Ebute-Metta, Lagos, at the thanksgiving and special prayer service on the theme: ‘Season of Wonders’, Pastor Adeboye recounted series of encounters he had with God a long time ago which have formed the fulcrum of the growth the world is witnessing today.
In his words: “When I became the general overseer of the church things were hard then. The entire income of the church was less than my salary at the University then. By the time we have finished paying the pastors there is nothing left for the general overseer. And then I collected my gratuity from the government since I was working with the government before I resigned into full-time ministry.
“I was happy because it was big money and I said I will manage it until the church grows. Suddenly i realized that I am no longer working with government but now under a new management, so I asked God how He wants me to handle the money. I was thinking I would save some after paying my tithe but the Lord said said I should divide it into three, give one-third to this ministry, give one-third to that ministry and the remaining one-third to other ministry. That was though, I said yes Lord to the very first, the second my yes was very low and then the third, it was though. And then God said something, “son, I will be your source”.
“If you see the glory of today, there is a story behind it. Not only has God been providing mysteriously, I know some of you have been wondering how is he doing it
Stop searching, you want to know the secret? Go to the God of wonders”
Continuing: “By the special grace of God, we started the Holy Ghost service in 1986 and uptill now miracles are still happening. It’s because God of Wonders is in charge, from everlasting to everlasting He is God. If you have the God of Wonders, if He is your friend, you can have wonders at anytime.
