The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has explained why he dedicated a white garment church last September in Victoria Island, Lagos.
Adeboye said he carried out the dedication of the Lagos cathedral of the Love of Christ Generation Church C&S (Worldwide), founded by Reverend Esther Ajayi, based on divine instruction.
The 80 years cleric disclosed this on Sunday during a special sermon titled, ‘Going Higher (Part 54)’.
He said, “In Acts 11:1-18, after Peter came from the house of Cornelius, the great apostles gathered together, called him to a meeting and challenged him; ‘What were you doing in the house of a gentile? We heard that you went there?’ They didn’t tell us all that they said but they probably told him; ‘You went to the house of a gentile because he was rich.’. Peter had to say that the spirit made him go.”
Adeboye added; “Whether you believe it or not, I got quite a lot of queries recently from well-meaning Christians: ‘Daddy GO Sir, we learnt that you went to a white garment church to dedicate a church. You of all people?’
“I said the spirit made me go. I was obeying the spirit.
“Years ago, I think 1982 or so, I was invited to one little white-garment church, it wasn’t a big one. I went because they said they have heard about me and I should come and preach. I got to the door, they asked me to remove my shoes, I did, because the spirit made me go.
“There was a man in the church, an engineer, that God knew He was going to need in the building of a campground that we had not even located at the time.
“I went because God said, ‘Go.’ In the things of God, don’t jump to conclusion, tread carefully.”
