Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), a mathematics professor has established a link between the subject he once passionately taught and success in every human endeavour.
The man of God while speaking at a special prayer programme organised for leaders and potential leaders in the country entitled “Not by might” at the RCCG national headquarters, Throne of Grace Parish, Ebute-Meta, Lagos, said there are two linear equations to success, supporting each equation with relevant bible passages, he also stressed that he believed in using mathematical equations whenever he needed to explain important issues in a brief manner.
Adeboye pointed out that mathematics is the language of life, noting “whenever I have to say something that I believe is very deep and I have to say it in a very brief manner, I turn back to mathematics because it is the language of life and you can say a lot within a short period if you use mathematics.”
His first linear equation states that “Power belongs to God”, in accordance with Psalm 62:11, which states that all power either on earth or in heaven belongs to the Almighty God and equation number is “God respects the humble”, which can be found in Psalm 138:6 of the bible.
Adeboye stated that a combination of the two equations, automatically brings one face to face with the secret to success, explaining that God resist the proud, gives grace to the humble and enthrone them in place of power.
Citing the biblical king Nebuchadnezzar as a case study, Pastor Adeboye further explained that God controls every human affair and gives power to whosoever He wishes; “God resists the proud and promotes the humble. God has the power to pick up a beggar from the dunghill and promote him to sit with princes”.
He however admonished political leaders to always put God first in all their activities and abide by God’s instructions, because on their own they are limited but they should rely solely on God who is unlimited in all ramifications.
“It is not by your power that you become anything, it is God who gives power and any power that be is from the Almighty God. Whatever you see happening, God is involved and that is why He instructed us to obey those in authority because God puts them there.
“Put your trust and limitations in the Almighty God who is unlimited. Great men are limited by sleep. No matter how strong you are, you will sleep but we have Almighty God who neither sleeps nor slumbers. No matter how powerful you are, you are limited by death, incurable disease but thank God who always heals our infirmities,” he stated.
Having reminded the congregation about his prophecy few years back that RCCG members would become presidents, vice presidents and hold prominent positions in Nigeria, Pastor Adeboye said with Holy Spirit any miracle can happen.
He added that the Spirit of God can make the impossible possible and when a man of God speaks, the Holy Spirit stamps it and makes it to come to pass, saying; “It takes the Holy Spirit to make the impossible possible.
Several years ago, when the Redeemed Christian Church of God was still very small and I mean very small, I told them what God said that presidents will come here to worship but their amen was very weak.
“I moved further to say that God says more than that. God said presidents will be members of the church. They will be ushers but the members then find it difficult to swallow that but mark my words, whenever God speaks, the Holy Spirit sanctioned it.”
“Also in our London church which was fewer than us here in Nigeria, I told them that royalties will come to the church and worship; they giggled and said amen. I went further that God said nobody will be in government without our permission and they laughed.”
