The general overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Emmanuel Adeboye, has advised Christians to stay connected to God in order to overcome life’s challenges.
He stated this while delivering a sermon at the ongoing annual Holy Ghost Congress of the church, held at the Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
During the sermon tagged: ‘A branch of the Life’, the man of God urged Christians to remain steadfast in their commitment to God. Backing his words with scriptures, he went on to say that nobody can kill him since he is already dead in Christ.
He said: “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,”
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.
He went on to advise Christians about the power of 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.”
