The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has urged Christians to rise up and defend themselves against terrorists and bandits in the face of the spate of attacks on churches in different parts of the country, IgbereTV reports
Adeboye who gave this injunction at the July Holy Ghost Service held at the church‘s international headquarters famously called the Redeemed Camp on Saturday night, also predicted imminent doom for the attackers of Christian establishment and churches and their sponsors, saying they would not know peace as long as God is on the throne.
Using the recent attack on the St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State, where about 50 worshippers were killed and scores injured, Adeboye stated that it was time Christians stopped waiting on God to come down and defend them as there was no place in the Bible where God said a child of God could not defend himself.
“From now on, it is going to be fire for fire. Some jokers said Churches should not open for three months. Who is your commander? God or Boko Haram? Let the devil try any nonsense, from now on, it is going to be fire for fire,” the man of God said.
“I don’t want to say much because I know some people may want to twist it but I have searched the Bible from cover to cover and there is nowhere in the Bible where God said a child of God cannot defend himself; If you find the place let me know.
“He said that if they slap you on the right cheek, turn left, He said that one. If they now slap the left, what did he say? When God is silent, do you know the meaning of that? It simply means over to you,” he added
