1. Pastor Adeboye offers major advice: The general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Enoch Adeboye, has advised Nigerians to go back to God. According to him, doing this would help the country overcome its challenges. Speaking at a special service at the Tafawa Balewa Square, Onikan, Lagos, themed, “The Turning Point”, the RCCG general overseer encouraged everyone to return urgently to God because the rewards are numerous.
He said, “Some of us, who used to be great and things turned around and are nothing now, I profess that you will have a second turning point.
“You will never go down again, you will move from being to the zenith and from glory to glory, but that comes with a price.
“The price is simply that you do that which was required of you and that is by returning to Him urgently.
“If you are up the mountain and you want to keep staying at the mountain top, be holy, be God’s partner, join hands in doing His work, and abide by his words.
“If you fulfil this part of the bargain, He will surely heal and show you the way upward.”
