Adeboye urges sobriety to receive God’s blessings
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church, worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has told Christians to know that the spirit of sobriety will always precede the experiencing of constant God’s outpouring of blessings.
Adeboye, who spoke at Tafawa Balewa Square, where Region 1 of the Redeemed Christian Church of God held a service titled: “Outpouring”, said ‘outpouring” means getting to the top, but for people to get to the top, they have a part to play by walking in righteousness, while the righteous God would play His own part by raising them to the top and sustaining them there.
He said: “When God pours Himself on anyone, that is “Outpouring”, and without much effort, the person would get to the top, but that cannot happen until the person regarded as a vessel has been cleansed.
“Cleansing comes when one repents and forsakes his past evil deeds and gives his entire life to Jesus Christ and after receiving outpouring he/she will begin to witness to others, which is one of the evidences of outpouring upon the recipient” he said.
Adeboye spoke through the Assistant General Overseer, Admin & Personnel, Pastor Johnson Odesola said for the nation to move forward and get to the top, political leaders must re-work policies that would enable the average Nigerian have a sense of belonging.
He said: “Those policies that have not been executed should be re-opened and be undertaken. Government should create more jobs and I believe strongly that it has the capacity and wherewithal to do those things that would benefit the average Nigerian. What is actually needed is the political will.“As a nation, I repeat that there is a need for national repentance which would open door for “Outpouring” from God and the nation would be better for it.”
