Pastor Adeboye Talks About His Battle With Poverty

adeboyes“My fahter was so poor, that the poor called him poor” -Pastor Adeboye. Story Culled From AFRICAN SEARCHLIGHT

The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has
described his rise to the present position as a testimony of what God can do to turn any awkward situation

Pastor Adeboye said that his days as a child did not really display any promises of a bright future as he almost dropped out of high school due to lack of school fees.

Speaking on Friday at the annual RCCG North America Convention tagged Festival of Life held in Baltimore, Maryland, the man of God recounted how his childhood was bogged down by untold hardship and
poverty, since his parents were barely living from hand to mouth.

Pastor Adeboye affirmed that God has been so good to him that no one in RCCG can match the quality of offering he gives during services and other programmes.

The man of God popularly called “Daddy G.O.” called on faithfuls at the convention to imbibe the spirit of
giving and sharing, as these qualities engender tremendous blessings form God.

He extolled God’s virtues as the ultimate provider, healer and protector of mankind who also cherish praise
at all times. “If prayers does not work in any situation, then try praise” he said.

Speaking at the event, Bishop Billy Wilson of the International Center for Spiritual Renewal enjoined African migrants in the United States to see their presence in the country as a continuation of their commission for greater envagelism work. He added that African migrants should help by participating actively in the ongoing American spiritual revival and rebirth.

Highlights of the programme among others include , a live concert performed by the famous gospel musician, Kurt Carr and the 100 men choir from RCCG, Jesus House, Washington, D. C.

The event held at the 13,500 capacity 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore, Maryland ,which recorded a full attendance of participants from all over the world.

God blessed me again with a beautiful daughter in 2009. I am asking for protection over my children as I can see that his family hate them.His family, the sister, the mother and the sister’children that have been imposed on our marriage want to destroy our marriage.These two men as they are not children anymore live in my house go to an extend of damaging my car because they want me to leave this marriage.This man that I am married to doesn’t give me any support with all that his family is doing to me, no emotional and financial support what so ever.I need prayers for this situation that I am going through since 2008.I command these two men to leave my house in the name of our Lord Jesus.I rebuke them with fire for keep on damaging my car in the name of Jesus Christ.I cancel every plot that his mother and sister has against this marriage in the name of Jesus Christ.Pastor I am asking for your prayers please and God has revealed to me that these people are in a mission to destroy this marrige please.
