Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the
Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, on Friday visited Benue State and prayed for God’s intervention in the ongoing killings in the State.
The cleric led a cross-section of Benue people to pray for the state, assuring that God would take up the battle and put an end to killings everywhere in Nigeria.
“We will call on God to fight this battle that we cannot fight. I’m here to pray for the state that the helper of the helpless will fight our battle.
“We will ask God to arise and put an end to this bloodshed. Let there be peace in Nigeria as a whole. There will be no more bloodshed in Nigeria,”
He said that in accordance with the Holy Bible, that
the horse is prepared for the day of battle but safety is of the Lord as he stressed that men can hide from men but no one could hide from God.
According to him, “Men can be corrupted, they can decide to do what is not 100 percent correct with the assistance of others but there is no way you can compromise the holiness of God. He is a Holy God, he created us all. And I know when we call on him to intervene, what is impossible for man is possible for God.”
While condoling with the governor and people of the state over loss of lives, he said his family and the entire church had continued to weep for Benue everyday since the killings began on New Year Day.
“We have felt every pain you have felt. We have wept when we saw you weeping. As a matter of fact, there is no way a man of God will not feel the pain when he sees mass burial anywhere. Some of those people are our children and some are not yet converted, so we suffer double loss. When somebody is dead, you can’t convert that person.
That is why we want these killings to stop. The Almighty God who doesn’t play, pranks or compromise can stop it,” the RCCG overseer posited.
