The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has recalled what God told him his 2020 new year prophecy about fire outbreaks in Nigeria and on the international scene.
Adeboye recalled that God told him that the natural disasters previously experienced across the globe were “child’s play”, saying the incessant fire disasters witnessed in Nigeria and other parts of the world this year were part of the manifestation of the 2020 prophecies.
The RCCG General Overseer spoke on Friday at the February Holy Ghost Service of the church tagged ‘Let there be Light II’.
Meanwhile, in Australia alone, bushfires were said to have burnt an estimated 18.6 million hectares of land and destroyed over 5,900 buildings including 2,779 homes as of January 14, 2020. The fires which started in June 2019 are said to have killed an estimated one billion animals as of January this year.
Whereas in Nigeria, over 20 fire outbreaks were reported across some states in January alone.
Speaking during the programme, Adeboye enjoined Nigerians to pray for the aversion of the negative prophecies of this year.
“If it is cancelled and nothing happens, at the end of the year, call me a false prophet, I would be happy. I’m not a prophet anyway; I’m a pastor. But if what God told me should come to pass, how will Nigeria cope?” he queried.
“A prophet will be anxious that everything he says will come to pass. A pastor will care less.
“At the beginning of this year, you heard me say that the Lord said that on the international scene, there would be fire outbreaks, flood, storms, earthquakes, volcanoes, that what we saw in the past was child’s play. If you follow the news all over the world, you can see what is already happening.
“I told you at that time that Nigeria is part of the international scene; we are part of the world. If you look at what happened in January, just one month, the number of fire outbreaks, houses burnt, markets burnt, government houses burnt, fire outbreaks near this airport and that airport.
“If the Lord says we haven’t seen anything yet, then we need to pray.
“In Nigeria, we don’t even have the means to cope with any serious fire outbreak. We don’t have the equipment to deal with any major flood. We don’t even have anything to handle a major storm. If all of a sudden, the ocean should come in, where will our people in Lagos go?
“I’m going to ask you to join me in praying that this aspect of the prophecies be cancelled. Father, have mercy on Nigeria. No fire outbreaks, Lord. No storm, please Daddy. Have mercy oh Lord. Have mercy on us,” said the RCCG GO.
