The general overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Enoch Adeboye, has revealed how God spoke to him shortly before the helicopter conveying Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to Kabba, Kogi State crashed in February.
Adeboye, who spoke while preaching at the Holy Ghost Service of the Church’s 67th Annual Convention with the theme, “And God Said,” on Friday, said it was during the February Holy Ghost Congress of the Church, which the Vice President was late to attend.
Osinbajo was at the event alongside Governors Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom, Jide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos and Godwin Obaseki of Edo States.
Using the incident to illustrate the passage that “no weapon fashioned against me shall prosper,” as part of God’s promises to His children, the cleric said he was in his prayer room when God whispered to him that his son was in danger.
“I got the message but I didn’t know how to present it,” he said. “He was going around on political campaigns so I didn’t know how to stop him. I also didn’t want him to be scared so I resorted to praying for him.”
The General Overseer recalled that he prayed for two minutes, repeating “Father, protect your son,” four times.
While testifying earlier this year, Osinbajo had said that he did not understand why the pastor would repeat the prayer for him.
Recall that a helicopter that flew the Vice President and his team to Kabba in Kogi State in February just before the general election crash-landed but all the passengers and crew on board escaped unhurt.
One of the many highpoints of Friday night during the one-week Convention was Adeboye’s sermon, which was mainly decrees, commands and prayers on God’s promises.
