Pastor E. A. Adeboye, Now The Most Powerful Man In Africa, 49th In The World – Newsweek

Pastor E. A. Adeboye, The Most powerful Man In AfricaAccording to the renowned and prestigious American magazine NEWSWEEK, the Top 50 Global Power Elite list for 2008/2009 includes two prominent Africans – President-Elect Barack Obama and Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye. For the first time that list is topped by an African-American.

This latest buzz is a confirmation of the long-held prophecy which Pastor Adeboye declared at the watchnight service 1993/1994. That was some 16 years ago. He said then that three giants would emerge. 1. Spiritual Giant, 2. Political Giant and, 3. Financial Giant.

I can safely guess that the Spritual Giant is Pastor Adeboye himself, having begun the “battle of the gods” at Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos, in January/February 1994. He was crowned from that battle at Lekki “Divine Visitation” in December, 1998.
Obviously Obama is the political giant. Who is the financial giant? Yet to come?

The unwrinkled and unblemished testimonies of Pastor Adeboye’s 28-year ministry as the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) bears witness to this new acknowledgement.

This is what the NEWSWEEK had to say about him: “…Behind Adeboye’s extraordinary success is his reputation for honesty. While other Pentecostal pastors (including some Nigerians) have been accused of financial misdeeds or faking supernatural powers, Adeboye remains above the fray…”

In a world that has smeared Nigeria as the land of all-manner of scams, this is a refreshing news of the exemplary humility of Pastor Adeboye.
