I am not too young to die – Pastor E.A Adeboye speaks of his own death.
The general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church Of God (RCCG) has during the last Holy Ghost Congress broached over the topic of his impending death.
The Man of God who will be 74 in March 2016, said he would not be too young at 73 to go back to his saviour.
The annual Holy Ghost Congress of the church left millions of worshipers in attendance in a great shock. During the one-week programme which ended on Saturday, with a three-in-one service, (comprising anointing, communion and impartation), Daddy G O as he is fondly called conducted a transfer of anointing. While explaining the importance of transferring anointing, the man of God said the transferred anointing is always more potent than the index case, using Moses and Elijah as examples. Citing the scriptures , Adeboye pointed out that where Moses, who got his anointing directly from God failed, Joshua, who got his fire from Moses, excelled.
He also cited the case of Prophet Elijah who performed 7 miracles in his life time while Elisha who got his anointing from Elijah when God was taking him away, performed 14 miracles. He also went further to explain how the transfer of anointing to recipients was done just when their masters were about passing away.
He said he would anoint his wife and other very senior pastors who, in turn, would anoint other pastors, through whom the worshippers would receive their own anointing. After the explanation, he looked at the congregation and said:
“You may be wondering if I am about to go. Will it be too early for a 73-year-old man to die? If I go now, who will say it is too early? “
This got a chorus of disapproval from the new auditorium. The pastor however said: “I am not too young to die.” Again, the crowd screamed their disapproval. To calm everyone down, Adeboye later said: “okay, it is not now (I’m not dying now).”The crowd roared a thunderous “Amen.”
