The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has declared that nobody can kill him.
He explained that nobody can kill him because he was already dead in Christ.
Adeboye made this declaration while delivering a sermon tagged: ‘A branch of the Life’, at the ongoing annual Holy Ghost Congress of the church holding at the Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan expressway, yesterday.
The clergyman, however, advised Christians to stay connected to God in order to overcome life’s challenges.
He recalled how he once went to toilet 23 times a day after taking a meal during one of his missionary trips to an African country.
According to Adeboye, it took God through the prayer of faith for him to be healed.
He said, “I did not know what I ate but I just saw myself going to the toilet. After the 23rd time, I realized that I needed to tackle the matter prayerfully. But who will pray for me?
“I then laid my hands on myself and prayed. That was how I was healed.
“But the same Jesus who slept, rose up to rebuke the wind, indicating his divine nature. Jesus was fully human and fully divine when he was on earth.”
He said further that since believers are extensions of Jesus as his branches “we share divine nature and are capable of doing what God said we could do. As long as we are linked to him and connected to him we have the capacity to do all that he said we could do.
Adeboye said, “I once told my children that nobody can kill me because I am already dead. I have been crucified with Christ nevertheless I live. Because Jesus is living in the believer, his blood flows in the believer.
“On the outside, it may not appear to be so, but in actual fact, the blood that is flowing in you is the blood of Jesus. Revelation 12:10-11, indicates that the blood has enough power to overcome the devil. If only you can believe, the blood that is flowing in you now can overcome any germ, virus or deadly thing.”
