Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has warned Christians to retrace their steps and get closer to God, saying it would not be his fault as a preacher if they fail to make it to heaven.
Adeboye stated this at the 68th Annual Convention of the church, which held virtually on Friday due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
According to the 78-year-old preacher, God can be “wonderfully angry” with his children if they continue to indulge in ways not acceptable to Him.
He said: “Don’t say I didn’t tell you, my children, I don’t know which convention will be the last one.
“The Lord may return before we have another convention. I don’t know when Jesus may return, but if any of you fails to make it to heaven, it will not be because I didn’t tell you the whole truth. God can be wonderfully angry.
“Watch your steps those of you who are playing games with the all-seeing God. God is angry with the wicked every day.
“Your life is in His hands and He can decide your last breath. But if you surrender your life to Him today, God can still save your soul and give you a brand new beginning.”
Adeboye said Christians should pray never to annoy God in order not to incur His wrath.
He said: “There is always one prayer I always pray. That’s my secret I’m telling you now.
“I’m not asking for money, I’m not asking for clothes, I know my God is more than sufficient.
“Only one prayer I pray: God, don’t let me ever annoy You.
“And He has proved to me that the more He loves you, the more you must be careful.”
The RCCG General Overseer added that God’s love is wonderful, but “it doesn’t matter what anybody may tell you, my God is not a Father Christmas”.
