Nobody Can Kill Me, Because I’m Already Dead – Adeboye

By Sam Eyoboka & Olayinka Latona

THE General Overseer of the
Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye
has advised Christians to stay connected to God to overcome life’s
challenges and have dominion over all forces of darkness and sickness.

gave the admonition while delivering his sermon tagged: ‘A branch of
the Life’, on the second day of the ongoing annual Holy Ghost congress
of the church holding at the Redemption Camp, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

copiously from the scriptures during the healing service, the man of
God, explained that Jesus Christ is the Vine while every true believer
is the branch and has God’s nature in him. Adeboye, however, urged
participants to remain steadfast in the vine, stressing that God has
assured them of doing greater works than He did while on earth.

In his words: “Jesus Christ is the vine while we are the branches. He
is the combination of divinity and humanity. As the vine is, so also the
branches. “If you are a true Christian, you are a combination of
humanity and divinity. You are human but you are made to partake in
God’s divine nature and He will supply the needed strength, power that
you need to do His works.

Every branch of the vine can do what
the vine can do”. Pastor Adeboye recalled how he went to toilet 23
times in a day after taking a meal during one of his missionary trips to
an unnamed African country years ago, noting that it took God through
the prayer of faith for him to be healed. According to him: “I did not
know what I ate but I just saw myself going to 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.” He made reference to the healing while
encouraging the congregation to pray for themselves, stressing that
every child of God is a branch of the vine with both the human and
divine nature.

Adeboye narrated the story of how Jesus slept in a
boat while there was a storm indicating the human nature in him while
He was on earth. “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. “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,” he said.
Adeboye noted that there are several things that science cannot explain
because those things are not happening in the realm of humanity, they
are happening in the divinity. Recalling how a doctor who was at the
verge of death was healed by taking a Holy Communion, he said, “Whatever
is called sickness or disease will be consumed by the Blood of Jesus.

Because Christ is in you and the Blood is flowing in your vein,
sickness is not permitted in you.” The RCCG General Overseer, who said
he just returned from a missionary trip to some West African countries,
told the participants that they have the capacity to do what He could do
because the same spirit that resides in Him also resides in them as
long as they belong to Jesus. According to him, “you can from here go
home and be healing the sick. The same capacity that I have you have as
long as you yield yourselves to God,” stressing “the Bible did not say
the signs will only follow the General Overseer but those who believe.

“Some also think they don’t have enough faith to do certain things. I
used to believe that everything in the Bible is true but I believe I
could not do those things because I did not have enough faith. Then I
would fast and ask God to increase my faith. But the Lord sat me down
one day and asked me some questions.

”He asked me, ’son, do you
believe there is God?’ I said yes. ’Have you seen him before?‘ I kept
mute. ’How then do you know there is God? Do you believe that Jesus is
the son of God?‘ I said I believe and he asked were you there when he
was born? I kept quiet and he kept on asking some other questions and
said why are you then saying you don’t have faith?

“It takes
strong faith to believe that there is God, that Jesus is the son of God
and that He is coming again. If you believe those things, you have the
faith you need to make the impossible happen,” Adeboye stated.
