Nobody Can Kill Me Because I%E2%80%99m Already Dead %E2%80%93 Pastor Enoch Adeboye

THE General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye has advised Christians to stay connected to God to overcome life’s challenges and have dominion over all forces of darkness and sickness.

Adeboye gave the admonition while delivering his sermon tagged: ‘A branch of the Life’, on the second day of the ongoing annual Holy Ghost congress of the church holding at the Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Quoting copiously from the scriptures during the healing service, the man of God, explained that Jesus Christ is the Vine while every true believer is the branch and has God’s nature in him. Adeboye, however, urged participants to remain steadfast in the vine, stressing that God has assured them of doing greater works than He did while on earth.

In his words: “Jesus Christ is the vine while we are the branches. He is the combination of divinity and humanity. As the vine is, so also the branches. “If you are a true Christian, you are a combination of humanity and divinity. You are human but you are made to partake in God’s divine nature and He will supply the needed strength, power that you need to do His works.

Every branch of the vine can do what the vine can do”. Pastor Adeboye recalled how he went to toilet 23 times in a day after taking a meal during one of his missionary trips to an unnamed African country years ago, noting that it took God through the prayer of faith for him to be healed. According to him: “I did not know what I ate but I just saw myself going to toilet.

After the 23rd time, I realized that I needed to tackle the matter prayerfully. But who will pray for me? I then laid my hands on myself and prayed. That was how I was healed.” He made reference to the healing while encouraging the congregation to pray for themselves, stressing that every child of God is a branch of the vine with both the human and divine nature.

Adeboye narrated the story of how Jesus slept in a boat while there was a storm indicating the human nature in him while He was on earth. “But the same Jesus who slept, rose up to rebuke the wind, indicating his divine nature. Jesus was fully human and fully divine when he was on earth.” He said further that since believers are extensions of Jesus as his branches “we share divine nature and are capable of doing what God said we could do.

As long as we are linked to him and connected to him we have the capacity to do all that he said we could do. “I once told my children that nobody can kill me because I am already dead. I have been crucified with Christ nevertheless I live. Because Jesus is living in the believer, his blood flows in the believer. On the outside it may not appear to be so, but in actual fact the blood that is flowing in you is the blood of Jesus.

Revelation 12:10-11, indicates that the blood has enough power to overcome the devil. If only you can believe, the blood that is flowing in you now can overcome any germ, virus or deadly thing,” he said. Adeboye noted that there are several things that science cannot explain because those things are not happening in the realm of humanity, they are happening in the divinity. Recalling how a doctor who was at the verge of death was healed by taking a Holy Communion, he said, “Whatever is called sickness or disease will be consumed by the Blood of Jesus.

Because Christ is in you and the Blood is flowing in your vein, sickness is not permitted in you.” The RCCG General Overseer, who said he just returned from a missionary trip to some West African countries, told the participants that they have the capacity to do what He could do because the same spirit that resides in Him also resides in them as long as they belong to Jesus. According to him, “you can from here go home and be healing the sick. The same capacity that I have you have as long as you yield yourselves to God,” stressing “the Bible did not say the signs will only follow the General Overseer but those who believe.

“Some also think they don’t have enough faith to do certain things. I used to believe that everything in the Bible is true but I believe I could not do those things because I did not have enough faith. Then I would fast and ask God to increase my faith. But the Lord sat me down one day and asked me some questions.

“He asked me, ‘son, do you believe there is God?’ I said yes. ‘Have you seen him before?’ I kept mute. ‘How then do you know there is God? Do you believe that Jesus is the son of God?’ I said I believe and he asked were you there when he was born? I kept quiet and he kept on asking some other questions and said why are you then saying you don’t have faith?

“It takes strong faith to believe that there is God, that Jesus is the son of God and that He is coming again. If you believe those things, you have the faith you need to make the impossible happen,” Adeboye stated.

The Wedding Party Private Screenng For Wole Soyinka And Abimbola Fashola 3  1

It was all over the news yesterday, a young man refused to give up his window seat for Nobel laureate Professor Wole Soyinka in a plane.

The young man had gotten to his seat to find Soyinka there. According to Tonye Cole, who shared the details of the incident, the young man told Soyinka that the seat he was on is his and he wants to sit there.

Well, Cole and a few others, including media mogul Mo Abudu faulted the young man for doing that.

“So so sad. That young man will get what he truly deserves. That is definite!” Mo said as a comment under Cole’s post.

Mo has now taken to Instagram to share an email she received from Soyinka concerning the incident.

“Good morning beautiful people. It’s 6.30am here in Los Angeles. Quite a bit has been said about me making certain comments about the young man that refused to give up his seat for Professor Wole Soyinka.” she said in the Instagram post.

She continued: “I will not comment further on this, however as you all know I LOVE and RESPECT Professor Wole Soyinka dearly. Based on this incident, I did receive an email from Professor Wole Soyinka this morning”.

She then went ahead to share the email with Soyinka’s permission. See below:

Hallo Mo,

Someone sent me Patrick Tonye’s comment on the plane incident, and I saw your brief comment. It was a very minor thing and I’d forgotten all about it. However, after reading the boy’s response, I became curious. First, I never exchanged a word with him throughout beyond inviting him to take his allotted seat. Never spoke a word to him after that. Certainly never exchanged contact. So of course, I wonder if it’s the very individual  who’s posted this or a total fake. The phenomenon of stolen identities takes very strange dimensions and has become a source of worry. I wonder if this is one such. Any way of your finding out. I don’t operate in the social media as you probably recall.

Government officials are planning to defraud Nigerians again with “eGov Master Plan”

Published

According to Galaxy Backbone and Ministry of Communication, Govt plans to roll out its eGovernance platform very soon. It is based on a MasterPlan that the Korean Governnent spent $500m to develop. Also, Shittu the former Minister of Science and Tech had during  the Launch of the eGov Master Plan on 24 May 2019 said it would run on a NIPOST platform and a private company has been incorporated to manage the effort. This is shaping up to be another Mega Failure already. It is built by government officials trusted to do the best for the country but seem to lose sight of that fact somewhere along the way. There are so many fundamental issues wrong with this; too simple and too many to contemplate. Let’s look at a few
Firstly,  have everything Nigerian eGov running on one single platform is a serious security vulnerability. How? To incapacitate the Nigerian government, all you have to do is to take that platform down and it would be over. The single NIPOST platform would attract many such attack attempts and eventually one such attack attempt would be successful and bring down the entire Federal Government. Each Ministry is supposed to be allowed to develop it’s own assets whilst all that is developed is a framework for communication between the ministry platforms. Security is everything. This single point of convergence is a guarantee for failure
Secondly, nations protect their masterplans, especially technology plans and yet government officials of Nigeria received $500m of “aid” from a foreign power for something as sensitive as this? With all the IT skills domiciled with Nigerians, was it not possible for these officials to call a series of conferences for these skilled Nigerians and build a team to work with????? Again security is everything.
Thirdly, whatever the justification, it is manifestly inappropriate to register a private company to run eGovernance Services. It is the culmination of the commercialisation of Govt services which all have budgetary appropriation from the commonwealth of Nigerians. Why make us pay for it again? and then still involve a commercially registered company. When did government need commercially registered firms to render service, regulate the nation, form policy or even collect money for its services? And worse still, one  commercial entity to represent ALL Government MDAs under NIPOST platform???
Fourthly, why NIPOST platform? A NIPOST under Bisi Adegbuyi that has not achieved any Transformation of NIPOST? We are now to entrust such with the responsibility of hosting the  eGov service of the entire nation? Who is Bisi Adegbuyi?  he was once an Ogun State delegate for Jonathan in PDP and now turned out to be an appointee of APC from Oyo State. Despite all entreaties can not make headway for or account in respect of all the stamp duties running into Trillions which NIPOST along with other agencies is accountable for. Attempted to collect 1,000 naira every year from Nigerians for a digital addressing framework that is free globally. Violated Executive Order Number 5 of President Muhammadu Buhari. Misled the National Assembly, Presidency and Ministry that NIPOST had signed a contract with a  Foreign Company for digital addressing when no such thing had been done because in reality, it was his friends private company mData Technologies that had actually signed the contract for the whole of Nigeria instead of NIPOST. Now this same person has things to do with national eGov and suddenly a private company has been registered to handle the eGovernance through NiPOST platform? Once again, the word scam is beginning to ring bells around this eGovernance program. If it walks, clucks and looks like a chicken, it usually turns out to be a chicken. The eGov project will be a disaster on a massive scale if steps are not taken to reorient its course.
