Pastor E.A. Adeboye, General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, has posted a sermon on YouTube for the general public. Pastor Adeboye emphasised the importance of the Ark of the Covenant of God at the “FOR WHOM THE HEAVENS OPEN (Part 25)” || RCCG Online Sunday Service || conducted on August 27, 2023, Part C. He noted its importance and warned against its misuse.
He clarified that in order to avoid undesirable outcomes, living a holy life is necessary in order to be an Ark of God. He exhorted people to take on this role, giving them the ability to cast out demons, heal the sick, and provide joy and relief, provided they continue to be dedicated to leading virtuous lives.
Expanding on his point, Pastor Adeboye underscored the dangers of falling away from being an Ark of God. He emphasized that it’s more favorable never to have embraced this role than to abandon it, drawing a parallel between this concept and backsliding. He cautioned against the potential vacuum that can arise if the Spirit of God departs, which could lead to the infiltration of negative influences. He fervently prayed for God’s continued presence in the lives of those who had embraced their role as Arks of God.
Pastor Adeboye then turned his attention to those who had yet to accept Jesus Christ into their lives. He highlighted the idea that every individual possesses a spiritual presence within them, and if it isn’t God’s presence, it could be influenced by other forces. He drew a connection between lies and the influence of the devil, urging those who had spoken untruths to recognize the need for a spiritual transformation. He offered an invitation to accept Jesus Christ and surrender one’s life to Him as a means to expel negative influences and embrace a more positive spiritual connection.
