General overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor Enoch Adeboye says he told someone who asked him who would be Nigeria’s president in 2023 to be concerned first about being alive and the existence of the country.
Speaking on the topic ‘The Great Expectations’ during his church’s monthly first Sunday telecast, Adeboye said that no one should be certain about the future, because the future belongs to God.
Adeboye said, “This is 2021 some people are already getting ready to kill themselves over 2023. They don’t even know whether there will be 2023, they don’t even know whether they will still be around. There is nobody here who can say for sure that he will still be around by tomorrow. It is God who determines who will still be around by 2023.”
“Someone said to me sir, who do you think will be president in 2023, I said the president of where? He said the president of Nigeria. How are you sure there will be Nigeria in 2023? how are you sure? can you swear? I pray there will be Nigeria, so you don’t misquote me. But are you sure?” he added.
While commenting on his expectation, the 79-year-old said he would see his members in great number in heaven.
He said, “My greatest expectation is that I will see you in heaven. The members of Redeemed will occupy a particular section that the angel will say you tried. Without holiness, there is no Heaven. Which Heaven are you going to?”
