General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has said that a Pentecostal preacher once predicted his death after the death of Archbishop Benson Idahosa of Church of God Mission.
Adeboye said this on Friday night at the May edition of RCCG Holy Ghost Service.
He said the preacher, who is a member of Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), was misled by newspaper reports that he (Adeboye) had started a bank and hinged his prediction on that premise.
Adeboye said that at the time he was invited by a group of investors who just opened a bank to come and pray before the bank begins operation.
After the prayer session, he said the investors beckoned him to open an account with them so that he could become the bank’s first customer.
“When they made that request, I told them I had no money to open with. But the men decided to open the account with their own money which was a sum of N50,000. But shortly after the event, newspapers came out with a report that I had started a bank with the sum of N50million. The news was everywhere,” Adeboye said.
The RCCG leader further said that shortly after the reports, PFN leaders gathered for a meeting where the pastor announced: “Since I had started a bank, in not too long a time, the Lord would call me home the way Archbishop Idahosa was called home. I just kept quiet. I did not say anything. People were urging me to react. I refused.”
Adeboye revealed that the man who gave the prophecy had long died but added “here we are, God has not allowed the prophecy to come to pass.”
