General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has said God once threatened to wipe him out of the surface of the earth if he is ever proud.
Adeboye spoke on Thursday night at the church’s ongoing 69th Annual Convention Tagged ‘A New Wave Of Glory.’
The man of God, during his ministration said some people asked him, how could be humble considering all that God had done for him.
Adeboye said: “Without a doubt, God has been gracious to me, one of the topmost magazines in the world said I am one of the top fifty influential people in the world, God has been good. You still hear me saying sir to my driver because God loves me and He talks to me intimately.
“I will remind you of what happened after Lekki 98′ one of the biggest programs we ever held. We came back here at night, I was out praising God for the mighty things He had done between 2:00 am and 3:00 am, I knew the spot where I was, He said son, bend down, quickly I bent down and He said draw the figure of a man in the sand, quickly I did.
“And He said stand up, I did, He said wipe out what you have drawn with your leg, I did, He said son, if you ever forget who is the one in charge, I will wipe you out and nobody will ever remember you came into the world.
“Do you still want me to proud after that? You must conquer pride tonight.”
Adeboye has a message for those engaged in sexual lust.
“You lust after the opposite sex, there are people who will say once you are born again, you are a child of God and you can do what you like, fool around with the opposite sex, it doesn’t matter you will make it to heaven.
“I read it in the New Testament, 1 Corinthians 3:17, the Apostle of grace said you are the Temple of the Almighty God and you defile His Temple? He will destroy you. Do you think idolatry, fornication is something to be toiled with? When God destroys, He does a very good job because He is a consuming fire.
“God wants you to eat to have enough strength to continue to do the job. Some people have turned food to god, Philippians 3:19. Food for the belly, belly for food, both of them will be destroyed. Why do you groan when we announce a fast? How come you don’t shout for joy when I say we are going to fast?”
